Mr. Herbert Hoover, United States food administrator, is a statement just Issued says that cereal exports to the Allies from this continent are 45,000,-000 bushels short of the amounts promised, while meat exports are also very far behind the quantities which it had been planned to send and upon which the allies were counting. Even a#hort interruption in the-sup-rjlliea from this continent, upon which the atliag are now dependent for their dally bread and for most of their es-aeotial food supplies, would cause (amine conditions. Reserve stocks of wheat and meat have practically dis-appeared. On a recent d>te France had only three daps' eupply of wheat and flour for her civilian population. The following table shows how the standard crops of France have been reduced from pre-war production by reason of the lack of fertilizer and the diversion of men and horses to war work: � Wheat crop reduced 53.3 per cent. " PoUto crop/reduced 53.1 per ceDt. Sugar beet crop reduced 67.9 per �ent. Figures compiled some months ago much that was inimical to progress, but was difficult tfc avoid without recourse to absolute mandatory prohibition. With the exception of 1915-16 (48,537 immigrants) immigration in 1916-17 was the smallest since 1903; but, nevertheless, it comprised 22,715 farmers, a percentage of 30. In 1912-13 the nercentage was 28-only 2 per cent, difference, it is true, but sufficiently encouraging in a change that takes years to Accomplish. In 1916-17, only 31,440 declared their occupations as being general laborers, mechanics or clerks as against 218,582 in 1912-13 -42 per cent, against 54 per cent. An upward tendency manifested itself, even in the westernization of immigrants. In 1916-17, 27,539 (37 per cent.) stated upon arrival, or showed railroad transportation proying, their destination as the prairie provinces, against 137,033 (3! per cent.) in 1912-13.

' The Services After the singing of tho Doxology by the large congregation which had assembled, a prayer of invocation was led by the Rev. J. A. Leslie. A solo by Miss Clark of Carmangay followed by an anthem by the choir was followed by the prayer of dedication which was most impressively givfcn toun as secretary-treasurer.

Dr. Ferguson The dedication sermon was preached by Rev. Dr. Ferguson from the text read at the dedication service by Mr. i in Psalm 132, "Arise, O Lord, into Leslie, and is as follows. At the i Thy rest, Thou and the ark of Thy meeting of the Macleod Presbytery \ strength.'' After alluding to the held in the fall of 1909 it was decided ! bringing of the ark of tho 'covenant to send in a student missionary to ! to his oity by King David, and to the hold services at Noble. Mr. D. J. Ago-j dedications of the first and second bole was the first Missionary to hold temples as showing the importance services on the field. In the spring i of a place of worship, he pointed out of 1910 Mr. Agobole after rendering . the usefulness of sacred buildings in our time. In Christianity the church as a fellowship of souls could exl�t. apart from any building, but this fellowship could bo promoted by the due use of dedicated butldlngs. Such a. church as theirs could serve a fourfold purpose in the community. It should he a sacred place like a temple where God revealed Himself to reverent and humble worshippers who sought Him. It should be a sanctuary whore Divine strength and Gomfon was brought home to people in their weakness and distresses. In speaking of thjs he described scenes recently witnessed at Vancouver and Victoria in connection with the funeral of the late Premier Brewster, on the wharf", in the parliament building, snd in the Metropolitan church, and paid a tribute to the high character,and unstained record of Mr. Brewster is an instance of what, the church should give thanks for and aim at perpetuating. The church should also Serve as a school in which .all could learn the word and the way� of God. The splendid success of the work: of the Qundsy schools had received Jn recent yoars fresh testimony from the religious experiences of men in the army. There was an urgent, call to all who could help to take part in this form of work and carry it to higher efficiency. The church finally was more and more coming to be recognised as a centre of social service, and it was hoped that this United Church of Nobleford would be a point from which the purest. Christian influence would pass into every side of their social- activity. Let all remember that the children and young people growing up around them were within a few years to be men and women influencing circles far beyond their present immediate neighborhood. The preacher gave thanks that God was not setting His church aside, as one would fold up and lay away a worn and useless garment. but was cleansing her and preparing her for grander uses than ever. The singing of the National Anthem brought to a conclusion the most impressive service . in the religious life of the community had ever held. Evening Services There was also an excellent congregation^ present at ihe evening service when the sermon was preaclied by Mr. VV. C. Marsh In the tioa/voidabie absence of the Rev.' W. F. Burns of Lethbridge. At this service there was also ordained a new elder of the church in the person of Mr. C. C. Hertzel. The ordination service was most impressive and was taken part, in by the Rev. Dr. Ferguson, Rev. J. A. Leslie and Mr. \V. Stewart. Tim offerings for the day amounted to $90.41. Next Sunday the opening services will be continued, when the special preacher will be the Rev. Mr. Kennedy of Macleod. See What* This Man Says Standard Oil Co.

My wife, lik� most other women-so the family physician tells me-suffers from constipation. With the first two we had great trouble while they were nursing, all because, of the fact that it was necessary for my wife to take medicine for constipation, as a result of which the children not only suffered, but were pale and cross, until they were large enough to eat for themselves. Willi our last child the same trouble" began, and the physician when called on for medicine, said "My! My! it's.impossible to give anything that will not hurt the babe." This put me to thinking, and as I had used NUJOL, I finally persuaded my wife to try it, and it proved as 1 suspected. It relieved the mother without hurting or affecting the babe.
