Even if Ukrainian supplies are obtained it will not give an increase in the food ration. An official rciiiirt made public In Germany on May ~ said there were twelve thousand carloads of grain ready In Rumania for shipment to G>>rmany but even if it is transported it will do no more than to prevent a reduction in food allotments.

They e.v pect the president of the pr'vy council to provide a special censor to strike out of the Orange Sentinel the incendiary articles that appear in that publication every week. "We do not oh' ject," said Mr. Lemleux. "to the existence of the Orange order but we do object to tliat order trying to luono-polize the loyalty ot the nominion." He went on to say that tho St. .lean Baptisto Society, St. Andrews Society, and St. Patricks Society are just as loyal as the Orange order.

BYE-ELECTION According to reports gathered by financial and railway agencies in the city, wheat seeding in Southern Alberta was on Saturday night 90 to 100 per cent finished. North the seeding is finished but in the south and eastern part of the district there is some land yet to be seeded to wheat. The oat crop is 20 to 05 per cent seeded according to locality. Barley and flax percentages are somewhat lower. Provided good rains are received shortly tho flax acreage .on new breaking will be very heavy.
