Director Joseph Kaufman who directed Dlllle Uurke'a latest Paramount picture, "Arms and the Girl," which is to appear tonlgltt and tomorrow at Star-land, found this to bo true in .in unexpected manner. The story 'called for a great many rather accurate scenes supposed to ho taken In the Interior ot a remote Belgian hotel or inn. Recalling that he and his wife had spent several very agreeable days in just such an inn Willie travelling In Belgium a few-years ago, Mr. KliHfmann made a hasty search through his kodak hook and from tho snapshots which he found (Spi'Ojal *o llm llor.ilil) Edmonton, Alia,, Mar. 18.-A wider scheme ot workuu!ii'.s compensation than that proposed in riio mines com- .._......_ ____........................ pensfttlou act will, it is understood, he ( there, had the sceuea or "shots' o� the submitted to the IcKislature.

SoiaiersOfiheSoil For the Farms The proof of the value of boy workers 6n farms is that nearly every ^ farmer who got boys vn 1916 wanted them again in 191 J* In 1916 a little over 2,000 boys went on the farrnJs in Ontario. In 1917 mwrly 8,000 were derhanded and this y�ar more thaiit25,(K)0 will be re^quired. Hundreds of letters from farmers have been recdved, speaking in the highest terms of tfic work done by the boys. In many, maqy cases no pthcr farm labour was used because none ^ coiitd be had. Nor was any other needed because the boys did aU the! work well and willingly.  .This year Canada asks that no. leM than 25,000 ) boys shalfenrbll in" the Soldiers of the Soil to heJp Canada raise; the IdoA our Allies and armiea must > have to win the war. ' r 26,000 volunteer boy workers wUl help-very materiaiiy to solve Canada's farm labojur problem. Enrollment Begins Mareh 17 and it is necessary that it be complete |)y March 23 8d that the farmers of, Canada wiU know for! a certainty that this help will be forthcoming whien it is needed. They can then go abead with seeHing, being assured of help for'cultivating an4|:>har^etttng. Boys from is'10 inelutlve, can enroll with High School Tcachera, "V.M.G.A. Secretsries.-; Scout Masters, Etc.. , Farmers can appl^ for boy* to / the Pfovindal Minister of Agri. culture. Caniida Food Ottawa J. D. McGre|f6r� Director/Afrfeulturtl Ifvbpur nouncoment was made at this morrt infe'.?' meeting of the city council when Mr. Gracb submitted estimates for the year's showing that $11,000 more will be required for the operation of the department this year than last. Ml*. Grace recommends a ten per cent Increase and no discount as Is the,case now, with a penalty for nonpayment within a certain time. Mayor Hardie,'howcvei", suggostB a 20 per cent. Increase on the old rates, and a ten per cent discount for prompt payment. Last year the discount .plan was abolished and the penalty plan adopted, so that while the rates were not raised water cost 10 per cent more. The new scheme will mean that a 20 per cent increase on th'e quoted rates at present with a ten per cent discount. ThI.s will mean that those who have been paying |5 per quarter will now be billed tor $6.00 with a discount of GO cents for prompt payment. The increase In the rates, says Com miasion^r Grace, Is largely due to the ^act that the chemical for treatment of the water in the filter plant will cost al}out $4,500, while the Interest and sluking fund On the filter plnt will cost considerably more. Taxes this year aro about $1500 higher, while wages paid the workmen o� the department have also been increased. Tho m6tor rates will be raised at the same time, according to a schedule brought in by the commissioner. An ettort will be made to graduate the meter ratds so that at first,metered water will cost alAiost as Viuch as water on a flat rate Iiasis, the decrease being mndfl as the larger, amount of water is used. , Filter Plant Worklpo The filter plant is working today. As a matter of fact the waterworks de^ partment stole a march on the cltlaonB and filtered water has been pumped through-the mains for the past two d^ys. This has been suspected by many and Commissioner Freeman confirmed the tact this inornlng at the city council meeting. Mr. Freeman, however, warns water users that tt may be necessary to close down the filter plant for a day for the purpose of inspection before it ia tin ally taken over by the city. This, t^) gether-wlth the necessity ot cleaning out the mains and ' the standpipes means that houaelioldets will not receive filtered water continuously at first, but after abouO ten days there iihould b6 no more trouble. .JMariy-Oltizens have noticed tho clar-Ity ot the water yesterday and today an'q have wondered whether the new plant was In working order. They now have the asauranco that it isi and that:,when'"the river breaks up the muddy BolutioB of bygone years will npt be'dished up. , � I MAYOR MARTIN IS , SUING FOR DAMAGES Montreal, Marcii 18-Mayor Martin sayf be has Instructed his soUcltorS to .enter action tor .^$50,000 damages against't)ie Lapresae Publlahlng Company, THo mayor complaina ot a story published in La P^esse which pur ports to aay that Mayor Martin In fringed, muptolpal bylaws with rogtu'd to automobile traffic, ^ ' .
