Tho vocation- al training Is in charge of vocation- al olttcer, who will be an ex-officio member of a subcommittee on train- ing of the provincial committee. Hon. J. It.

Miller, provincial direct- or of technical education, will he plac- ed at tlie disposal of the commission for a considerable portion of his time. Individual Study In addition, to the general training: for all returned convalescents which has already, been commenced in the Ogden home, and will bo greatly dev- eloped Immediately, special arrange- ments will be made for the provision of vocational training for all men whose disabilities will prevent them following their previous occupations. i Every case.will be studied by a small board of experts and the most care- ful consideration given to LDQ man's special heeds. His previous occupa- tion, his injuries, his special aptitudes and his own wishes as lo his future will yll be intb account, and the wisest possible arrangements for his training made by the commission. A scale of pay and maintenance for the men and their dependants, while undergoing vocational re-education, la being prepared by the commission, and will shortly be issued. Gardening and Hens at Ogden Gardening and poultry keeping will be introduced at once at the Ogden home; also, some light shop work. 1 Tlie present general course will also' be extended to cover certain commer- cial branches!

This condition is not likely to corrected until a greater effort is imulo to produce alfalfa seed in those districts where only tho hard- lust varieties will survive the winter. The central western states. Nevada, Utah, Kansas, Arizona and Wyoming at, present supply most of thy seed sold In Canada, and, as tiio alfalfa grown In these stalest is largely the true alfalfa, Medicago saliva, which is not winter luirdy in many parts of Canada, tho results arc frequently very unsatisfactory on account of winter killing. The variegated alfalfas, Medicago media, which includes sm-h varieties as Grimm, Baltic and Ontario varie- gated, have by repeated tests !n both eastern and western Canada proven best adapted for extended cultiva- tion. To increase the supply of seed of these varieties is, therefore, of vi- tal importance to the future of alfalfa growing in Canada. The high market price of genuine seed of the variegat- ed alfalfas that has obtained for sev- eral years might have bfjen expected to have greatly stimulated production, but tho amount of seed annually on the market is stiil limited in amount, and inadequate to meet the demand. While this is being corroded to a limited extent by the growing of seed in Ontario and the prairie provinces, principally In Alberta, there is stiil urgent need for an extension of iho I acreage devoted to producing alfalfa kseed. The alfalfa seed crop is regarded as precarious even in the districts hast adapted to it. It is very vari- able from year to year according to tlie weather that prevails, more par- ticularly after the plants start to bloom. In some seasons, conditions may favor a seed crop from the first growth of the season instead of the second, although it has been rather generally accepted on inadequate proof that the seed crop in tills lati- tude should be the second. Jn addition to the weather there are a number of factors that enter into the problem of alfalfa seed pro- duction and some of these have been under investigation for several years in the Cereal Husbandry Department of Macdonald College.

It is the opinion of the commission that occupation of'a suitable type will assist greatly In the restoration of the health of the disabled, and will also enable many of the men to im- prove their condition in civil life.

Thai means proper coordination.between brain and body, and for its best realization there must be care in the matter of food. A well-balanced diet is easily digesl- iblc and rich in nerve-building material. Very often the result of improper food is seen in indigestion, "brain- nervousness and general inefficiency. Grape-Nuts a delicious food made of whole wheat and mailed barley, is admirably adapted for brain workers; for included in ils rich iuitrimcnl, are the vital mineral phosphate of potash, etc., grown by Nature in the grains. These mineral elements are absolutely essential lo well-balanced bodies, brains and nerves, but are often lacking in much of the food that goes to make up the usual dietary. A daily ration of Grape-Nuts along with other food is just the thing to put one in fine fettle.

In both methods of seeding the I yield of seed decreases as the thick-j ness of the stand increases. Ths flS- j tires would apiifar to Indicate that the broadcast sowing is preferable to j the row system, but It should he borna in mind that a seeding' of only 5 Ibs. i pur acre broadcast would give ai stand that under ordinary farm condi- tions -would soon become infested with grass and weeds and be quite unsuitable for growing seed. A thin stand in rows is not opea to the same objection as it can more readily be kept clean by cultivation. Experiments in 1915 The past season has been a. poor alfalfa seed year in all parts of Can- ada. Where seed growing waa contem- plated the first crop was as usual cut for hay. and the second allowed to stand for seed. The wet weather so general in both eastern and western Canada in July and August did not fa- vor the fertilizing of the blossbms and a very poor setting of seed resulted. In thu Cereal Department, we hud r. very light crop of seed, but in this case it cannot be attributed to wet weather as we had practically no rain during July or the first half oi August. The extreme drought Is more likely responsible for the low yields given' Methods of Seeding, Sown 1913 Area in Method of Yield per Acres Seeding Acre Ib. .42 In rows 4 links apart, 6 Ib. per acre ...ti'1.29 .8370 In rows, ,'i links apart, 5 Ib. per acre.......... 71.11 1.847 Broadcast, mixture of al- falfa ,tall oat anil or- chard grass ..........24.9n Range 11, sown broadcast in IP 13 at the rate of 20 Ib. per acre, pro- duced, as already noted, a light crop of Ib. in 1914. In 1916, it was a complete failure owing, at least, partly to the depredations of grass- hoppers. There was an extremely poor setting of seed and the grasshop- pers seemed greatly Lo prefer the broadcast seeding to that in rows, as the adjoining Range "12 was injur- ed very little by them. Tlie yields given above are all low, but those in the row seedings are well above the others, and are, .non- sidering the present high price, profit- able. It is scarcely necesary to point out that several years further work is required Vafore any definite rules can 'be laid down for the production of alfalfa seed in this part of Can- ada. But the results of these experi- ments coupled with the experience of fanners in Ontario and Quebec, would seem to justify the statement that in the majority at years alfalfa, whca properly handled, will produce enough seed to make a fair profit, assuming, of course, that only hardy variegated varieties are grown. Cer- tain districts will undoubtedly prove better adapted to seed growing than others, but while genuine hardy seed continues to be as high In price at it is at present an. effort should bo made to grow it wherever possible. When the market price falls, "as It surety will, seed growing can be left to those districts where the best crops can be grown. During the year 1915 .about applications for alfalfa culture at Macdonald College have been receiv- ed and dealt with. Bach culture sup- plied is sufficient to inoculate 30 Ib, of seed and full directions accompany it. Only one shipment of inoculated soil was made, tills being, to a man who had gown his seed without inocu- I lation and'who Intended'.hwrrowiog in the inoculated soil after .the alfalfa was several inches high. When alfalfa is being sown on land that has not previously produced the crop It is essential that the soil be inoculated with the bacteria that en- able the alfalfa plants to utilize the nitrogen of the air in their growth. The method of inoculating Is of little importance. Where soil from the es- tablished field of alfalfa can be con- veniently and cheaply obtained -with- out the danger of introducing the seeds of new weeds the soil might to advantage be .used. But under other circumstances the laboratory culture will bo found more satisfactory. MDE. ROCHOH Rochon, P.Q. March 2nd, 1915.

In reply Earl Curzon said Mis gov- ernment is now administering tho whole British mercantile marine, aii'.OuiiUng tc half 'the gross tonnage of the world. Forty-three per cent, of the British tonnage, ho added, has been requisitioned for naval and mil- itary jwrposea, fourteen nor cent is occupied in carrying food stuffs and raw material in behalf of the govern- ment and its allies, and the remain- ing forty-three per cent is being op- erated by British ship owners under state regulations.
