On account of its vigorous habits of growth, excellent yield inni superb milling qualities this variety which year after year as an exhibit flora Western Canada has carried off premier honors at the International il Products Kxhtbition in the United States, has largely supplanted the old st..t*.d.1iil Ucd Fife that also gained for t'.r.i siHnn wheat an enviable reputation in the flour markets of the world. A service rendered by the introduc-ti ! of Prelude- � few years later was al-e ,j ureal importance, inasmuch as ic i-\'ended the v.-Iioat-growiug area of tlti.-. country by millions of acres. To these two valuable accessions to the hard wheats of Canada is to he aide.; a new sort that comes midway between Marquis and Prelude in tho raa; of yieid and ripening. This new s, it has been introduced at the r-'utrad 1-lxperimental Farm. Ottawa, by Dr. Chits. K. Saunders, the Domln-i.'ti Ce.-ealist. who gives the following a cecum ot the new wheat in the Mare,; number of the Agricultural (lat'etie. the official organ ot the Federal Department of Agriculture: "The new wdieat, which has been named Ruby. Ottawa 0-3, possesses characteristics in ripening and other qualities midway between Marquis and Prelude, it is beardless, possesses hard, red kernels, gives a fair yield, and makes Hour of tiie highest quality in regard to color and strength. Bread made from it ranks in the first class. This wheat is trie result of n cross between' Downy Riga and lied Fife, Downy Riga was produced from two early sorts, Gehun, an Indian variety, and Onega from Northern Rusaift. Ruby is recommended for trial where Marquis does not ripen satisfactorily. A very limited distribution of flTe-pound samples Ib being made to farmers requiring an early sort. A sufficient crop will be grown this year on tho Experimental Farms to provide for a generous distribution next spring." Rev. R. B. Cochrane, pastor of College street Presbyterian church, Toronto.-denounced the proposal to raise ?SOO.O0U to build a new country club near Toronto, adding: "And this when hundreds of legless and armless veterans are receiving n mere pittance us a pension from~-tho government, when the city of Toronto cannot find $150,-UOo to build a hojpltal for the feebleminded. 1 am going to keep a list of those who are interested in the pro-i position." FARMS WILL TAX THE SUPPLY That tho demand for men for spring seeding operations is going to tax tho supply to the very limit was made plainly evident this morning at the provincial labor bureau in the Board of Trade building, J. Weir, who is in charge of tho distribution of labor stated that orders for men wore coming in faster than applications for jobs. A few days ago there were more, than 100 applications on the books. All these apparently have landed jobs for the suinmor. "Tho business men will have to release ovory available man," said Mr. Wolr. "Ot course there nuiy bo a larger number of men como in within t!m next few dayn, but with seeding starling April 1st, the call for men will be groator also." It looks as it seeding would be well under way tho first week of April throughout all parts oil tho south with tho exemption of tho districts east of Orassy hake and Foremost where the snow was very heavy. SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1918 BIG DAM BREAKS Calgary, Mnr. 23.-The Canadian Northern dam at Hanna had brokon tinder the otress ot heavy floods.
