Have you a small kitchen And have you big meals to prepare, too? Surely that is a double problem worth simplifying right away. You should see what an abundance of cooking you can do on our style E.S. range in a small corner of your kitchen. The main top has three regular, one giant and one sim- mering burner; and there are two long burners on the oven and the broiler. The broiling oven has also a large round burner. That means you can crowd on pots, kettles and pans to your heart's content. And you needn't worry about the gas. Every inch of gas turned on is earning every cent you pay for it, for McClary burners don't waste, and every bit of heat in the oven does work.

Calgary Edmonton eei Saskatoon Sold by Hich-ScJil Hardware Co. for the purpose of handling shipments by the Pacific when there was no guar- antee that shipments could be made by that particular route. I think that the government can be charged with making a fatal error in the location of that elevator in the province ol Alberta. I am going to use the name iof my own city not for selfish reasons but because I believe that the location of that elevator at Lethbridge would have served shipments east and ship- ments west, as it is practically the centre of the wheat growing the eitreme southern part of the pro- vince of Alberta, and in that extreme southern part I think It can be safely said that SO per cent, of the wheat raised in Alberta is produced. All the railroads run into Lethbridge. The farmers could have shipped their grain there and used the internal ele- vator at Lethbridge, and it would not have meant a back haul, whereas, to use the elevator at Calgary, under ordinary conditions, means a hack haul for the farmers of a great propor- tion of the wheat-growing- section of the province of Alberta. I asked the minister earlier in the session how much grain the Calgary elevator had _andled from the date 01 the opening till December 31, 1915. And the an- swer was that the total amount, includ- ing all grains, was buahels. Then I asked how "much fte elevator had handled from 1st January to the 14th January in this year, and the answer was that the total amount handled was 248.367 bushels. This elevator has a capacity, according to minister, of That was ail the grain that waa sent to the elevator up to the 14th January. I j admit that since that time there has been a considerably iarger amount of f grain going into the Calgary elevator. This was not because the location of the elevator warranted the grain going there, but because the rates worn re- i duced at the re- Canadian Pacific also made a reduction in rates in order to got the grain into the elevator, and in embargo was placed upon grain coine out of Mberta lo eastern points. All of these tilings forced the' grain into the Calgary elevator. But that was an unnatural condition, due to Iho action of the railways and to that of the grain commission in reducing rates My clmrgo against the govern- ment is. that this elevator waa located at a most undesirable place with re- ference to the wheat-raising area of Alberta when It was placed, at Cal- gary. It shouki have been placed in the extreme southern part of tho pro- vince, and It might then have served 80 per cent of the grain-raising part was traffic through the Panama canal disorganized by the war, but the Pana- for the last two years at least has j ma canal itself has been closed for produced large quantities of grain. My hon. friend Is exactly right when he says that the southern part of Al- berta would find Lethbridge very much in its line for shipments east; bnt it also finds Moose its line for shipments east, the. elevator at Moose Jaw being available for that purpose. For shipments east it has little, if any, use for the Calgary ele- vator.

Mr. Buchanan: Does the minister know whether it will be possible to ship grain via the Panama canal with- out sacking at Vancouver? Sir George Foster: Of course you can never be positive about anything until you have made the experiment, but if grain can be shipped from the Argentine to London, passing through the tropical belt without harm, I do not-see why the short passage through the Panama canal should injure grain in good condition. That is the impres- sion of some of the best grain men. While There Is Life There Is Hope Mr. Buchanan: The minister has been giving us lots of information to- night, and I would like some more before we arise. Is it the intention of the government to establish more than one storage elevator in the pro- vince of Alberta? That is all I ask; I will not ask where it is to be placed. Sir George Foster: I will tell my hon. friend this: I have had a great number of petitions, and a good deal of correspondence, and I have taken the position that the elevators that we have already Saska- toon and Moose connection with the east, and the Hudson Bay transfer elevator on the northern route when It is opened, together with the terminal elevator at the head of the lakes, complete what was In our minda at the time when the policy was laid down. Then the Calgary elevator, with the transfer elevator at Vancou- ver, completes that end of the policy. It was not part of that policy that we should erect interior storage elevators in the west wherever they might be useful. I know that that is quite an easy road for the roan who wants storage to travel on. He says: Here is a district which lias much more pro- duction than storage capacity; you 'have a storage elevator at Moose Jaw; why do you not put a storage elevator 'down here. We are trying to keep on i the track of linking up all the storage elevators with the transfer elevators .at the ports, and along that line the policy at the present time hail been carried out as far aa we had antici- pated. Even supposing that it waa not war time, it would scarcely seem possible for ua to a fnrthnr expenditure of money for storage fa- cilities, leaving that to corporate and private capital to take up. Tbe Trans- continental railway with the filter: colonial railway having a great service, has to sjipply certain storage facilities, and more storage facilities arc neces- sary In connection with that road than exist at the present tlmo, so that there will bo an exteiiHlon of government what extent I do not know convection, wllli railway transpor- tation. But I suppose that when wo ceaso to hope we cease lo live, or to put it tho other way, hope on as long KB you live.
