ONE WAV TO CONSERVE \VHEAT "Wheat sufficient to supply seven provincial cities with bread lost by lire, in 1916," was the startling headline appearing in the Moose Jaw Dally lilews a few days ago. The statement ifas made at the rural municipalities convention ot that province, and naturally created quite, an Impression. The tire commissioner .urged the rural ""municipalities to help prevent this Ipsd balng repeated. ; Juat at, this time when every bushel of wheat is of the utmost importance to Uio allied cause it behooves the peo-�ple of Alberta to consider the same Bjoblpm.' More ' care in preventing fires in mills,' elevators and farm gj-anarles would add greatly to the ijtock ol whpat available for export to the fighting front. It Is a warning t|iat ought to be seriously con^^idered and kept. In mind. feANADA'8, TAXATION BROPLEMS OF FUTURE iHop. F. b; Carvell, in a speecii at, .
