THE PROGRESS ... OF THE WAR. The Italians and their.allies can now definltoly claim victory against the Austrlans, according to the Italian-premier. The Ausfrian drive has been definitely stopped, and important ground regained by the allies. The Austrlans are masking frosh forces, presumably for another big effort. On the western front there have been no new developments within the past few days. Raiding operations have brought in prisoners tor the allies. SENATOR NICHOLS AND THE FARMERS. As was to be expected. Senator N'lfhols, of the Canadian Manufacturers' Aseociation Is coming in for quite some attention on the paxt of the farmers of the West owing to his statement made in the convention nf the association that the farmers, being rfble to raise wheat at SO cents a bushel, wore the greatest protlteerfl In the country when they scxUl their product at $2.21. The Grain Growers' Guide, official organ of the organised farmers of the West, deals with Mr. N'lchol.t In this manner: Senator Krederlck Nichols, head of the Canadian General Vllcctric Company and the Canada Foundry Company, and a director of nuirterous other Industrial .and financial concerns in the I'^ast. says that the average, cost of producing a biuihcl of wheat Is SO cents, and that becuuec the Government fixed tlio price of wheat at $J.L'l per busliel. the Western farmer has been making profits at the rate of 200 to 300 per cent, per annum. He has it all figured oiit just like that. Ho gave the convention "of the CM..v. in .Montreal last week the benefit of his calculations on this subject, in the course of a speech which tried to show why the farmers and manufacturers should get to,i;ethor a little more closely in . future than they have been in.the past. Senator XIrhol?-' idea is getting together has alway.s been based upon the possibility h ^PICKED UP IN-* PASSING w TKB^amy^ Sam Kansas has recruited vcsters. Siooo har;.

Lethbridge, joining with Cardston, Magrath and Raymond, have planned from July 22 to 2Tlh the first .amalgamated fair in the Province of Alberta, and as such it is attracting a great deal of attention. Its success will be a spur to other diatrlcta'to attempt .a similar" scheme, .with '(ha end in view ot providing ai number of really good agricultural exhibitions throughout the province which will be an asset to our agricultural industry. If for no other reason than to help out the, experiment and make it a success, everybody within a radius of 100 miles should visit Lethbridge during the fair. We can aseure everyone that it will be a visit which will combine pleasure with profit. Lethbridge is preparing to entertain the largest crowd In its history. Accommodations at reasonable prices will be avijilable for all. Take a holiday, visit the fair. to prodent an argument to his fellow manufacturers, many of whom, like himself, had had tlio advantage of shell contracts from the first Imperial Munitions Hoard. There Is little use attempting to off-sot any idea that happens to find an open crevice in the brain of a man like Senator Nichols, whose mind is about as susceptible to a contrary impression as one of his steel boiler plates is to the single blow of a triphammer. The fact is. however, that the cost of producing wheat on the Western plains since the outbreak of war has increased so rapidly, and the return, even at $2.21 per bushel, has been so uncertain, that there are many farmers who have lost money and lost heavily. There is this crucial differeiice between the grain grower and the manufacturer of munitions, like Senator .Nichols; that in the one case, the crop of shells is always assured, and in the other case, the crop of wheat depends very largely upon the beneficence ot Providence. Furthermore, the initial contract for shells with the Imperial Munitions Board took into consideration the manufacturer's entire cost ot production, including the establishment of his plant. He could not lose anything i, ho tried.- Doubtless, however, it Senator Nichols took up grain-growing on the Western plains (and we certainly may expect him very soon since he has discovered the prevailing rate of profits to be at 200 to 300 per cent.) Providence would shine upon him just as beamingly as the Govertiment has done in the past. That should hold Senator Nichols until tlio next convention rolls around, at least. held in Ueglna. This year one green house at Kel-owna raised over a million tomato plants. An additional 2,200 acrea ot land has been commandeered by President Wilson lor n "naval proving ground at Indian Head, Md. The late Frrfnk Buhl, millionaire steel manufacturer of Sharon. Pa., left $2,000,000 tor war sufferers in Northern Franco and Belgium. John Devoy, editor of the Gaelic American, New York, has been deprived ot mail privileges on account of an article denouncing Britain.

In fact, it is rich in protein and to a lesser degree in fat, and is tor that reason to, be classed where one might expect- among the meats. In its protein content, statistics indicate that fish Is practically on a level with meat. Now, as has been mentioned, it is chiefly for its protein, its body.huUdlng and maintaining power, that meat is oaten. Because of this fact,'during any period whoa conservation, ot meat la desirable, an equal consumption of fish will pro-Tide an eqtilvalent supply ot protein. Many kinds ot tish are also like meat in containing fat. The proportion varies considerably -with different varieties. Thus the flesh ot the cod contains leas than 1 per cent, (the fat being largely In cod liver), whereas the flesh of saimon has nearly 13 per cent, of fat. As an average, It may be -said that fish contalna about 14 pisr cent. fat.. . Despite the tact that fish eontains less tat than the flesh ot land anl-, mals, many Investigators maintain that It is at least comparable to meat^ fts a source ot bodily vigor. Fish might not be quite so indispensable A food-as meat to persons "whose, work requires extreme physical exertion; but, on the other hand, it Is preferable in the case of persons of eedentary habits, for Uie reason that lisb does- not impose a:heavy task �pon the kidneys in the elimination Of uric "acid from the system. The total value ot tbe American tlsU crop, including Alaska and the Insular possesBlons, js probably .'�150,-000,000 at tie present time, though the latest official figures put the total at 1125,000,000. The fact, however, that a portion, ot these llgures repro-gonts the output prior to the advance In prices resulting from the war seems to justify and estimate ot approxl-.mately 1150,000,000 a� the value nf the TInlted States output at tho present time.
