It is because, in cur own degree, we are like Him, that ue see Him a little, "as He is.' ! So that when we are I� - I into sombre f , valleys, let us humbly and expectantly j assume that we are in the place of I �vision. Maybe the Lord i; going to anoint our eyes with eye-salve. :ind l He will impart unto ir one of His see-rets. Perhaps it was needful that we should bo led into tin- valley in order our sight.

The Soldier Set-! tlement Board, which has only recently been assembled, has not yet bud time to formulate its regulations and j organization for ordinary business. In! an endeavour to deal with these spec- j ial cases of urgency it has been decided that their applications may be re-, ueived by the Dominion band Agenc-ies and the necessary inspections and; valuations of the land made by the -j Homestead Inspectors for the purpose] of a provisional loan. As the Board; has only power to' grant a loan whnro , the security is assured, prompt action  is improbable in any cases in which title to the land is too complicated: by i encumbrances to admit of ready adjustment. The following instructions 'apply to the cases above mentioned: The "Preliminary Information Form" is to be filled out. by the applicant in duplicate. These are to be marked at the top "Special." One copy is be sent to the Soldier Settlement!'' Board, Ottawa, accompanied by a letter explaining that it is a case for special treatment; the other copy is to be sent to the Dominion Lands Agent within whose district the land affected is situated. The Agent will communicate in due course with the applicant who must, when advised to do so. be prepared to appear personally before the Agent or Inspector, or as otherwise instructed, to make formal application for a loan and furnish full particulars as to his land, his requirements^ fiof' spring seeding, the nature of his ,tl�Je,*( full particulars as to encumbrances, etc., and as to bis ability to make a living on hiB farm and repay advances. It is to be noted thai prompt action will be facilitated by the applicant confining his present application for loan to provisional requirements. It is only in the special dbov'ti mentioned that a duplicate copy of the Preliminary Information Form is pent the Dominion Lands Agent. In all other cases, it is only necessary to make out one copy, which should be sent to the Soldier Settlement Board, Ottawa. S. MABEPv. Acting Chairman. Tile ;
