When his compatriots saw how well and cheaply ho managed, those who could afford to do so bought cars ann are, profiting by his experience. Ho is how making a special study ot tractor engines, it being hia intention to add a tractor to his farm equipment this season. �Mr. Ironquill. whose home is at Touchwood Hills, was among the fir.^t to Join the File Hills colony. Ho smarted with SO acres and today has 500 aei-es, ot which 400 are under cultivation; has a fine house, a $2,500 modem barn, 50 head ot cattle. 20 horses and necessar}' mechanical He has named his place Lakovlew Farm, and uses printed stationery for his business correspoiwi-encB. Last fall his grain crops yielded 7,000 bushels. He keeps his own bank account, which Is a reo' substantial one, and transacts all his own feuslnesf,  only consulting with In-pector Graham on any matters of importance-about which he has any doubts. He is a Ufa member ot the colony Red Cross branch, takes an actire port in the work and acts as Interpreter at all gatherings ot a social and business nature. He has hif clothes made to order, is a constant reader of the Free Press and did not have a dollar when, he Joined the colony. He would spurn an offer ot $30,000 tor his farm and outfit today. Mr. Ironquill's case is not an Isolated one at \Flle HlUs. There'are other Indians who are equally prosperous, and there are a number who are ^oUoiving close, but he likes to le4ni as well as to work. He is likewise prond to be one of thoie who have proven that an Indian can do things as well as a ^w&Ue man if he is given-a chance. It might be ot interest also to sute that Mrs. Ironquill does not ahrays enjoy the best ot health, (o Mr. Ironquill has engaged for her a white housekeeper, whose husband is alio an employee ot the Ironquill estate.

But, of coui^se, the end Is not yet. The Canadian- eyatem ot compulsory recruiting followed the Biltlsh and not tlie United States cxamplcr In our sister, country to the south the draft ^waa' made by lottery-' following compulsory registration, with exemptions, under certain conditions, for thosfe thus drawn, -"rhe British system is that ot sole'ctlon. The whole military class Is put through the-mill and those most eligible to servo are chosen.^ There has been at least a temporary breakdown of our system In Quebec; but it is by no means certain that tho U. S. method would have worked better. In the U.S. exema>:lons were also determined upon by neighborhood tribunals; and it has been tribunals ot this character which have blocked the effective working of the ' Canadian act. In Quebec there has been almost universal conspiracy to muko the operation ot the, draft -nifflciiU. Everybody has been in it: members of the tribunals, ' lawyers, uuctors. judges; if in some cases the military representatives were not themselves parties, they contributed powcrfuUly by their Indiffcrenco and incompetence. It is, beyond question that whqlly. Inadequate machinery was provided by the late government for the appUoatlon ot the selective draft to the province of Quebec. The law Itsolif presumes the co-operation of tho community; and can, only be partially effective where It encounters concerted, or even passive, by the people. But in Quebec ther�^ was not even reasonable provision tor the enforcement of/the act. The government showed poor Judgment - in the selection of those members of'the tribunals who were. Indirectly, its choice; and was even nK)re unfortunate in*' Its choice of military representatives. The whole business was badly bimgled. One result is the 32,000 appeals from the exemptions granted by the local ^tribunals made by the military -whllo tlie law will be ot Dominion-wide application, oif course. It will be most invoked where there is most need ot U. A minimum recruitment of 20,000 from tlasS A from the province of Quebec under the Military Service act within the next tew months la confidently predicted by a high official of the mllltla department.

'She Military Service act-though It has produced no such volume of recruits In the early stages of Its operations as had been expected by most people-will till the -bill. For one thing, it ha-s. replaced apprehension bn" the pah of the military an-tjiorltles overseas over the possibility ot a cessation ot rearuits by a certainty that the people tft Canada will see that the men are forthcoming If It,Is necessary to "call up the whole five classes to supply them.
