'Wcr Is a time when loyal citizens should not look for more, but rather less, mone- tary reward for their labor's.

Soldiers who before war were clerks In offices and stores or following some indoor occupation' will, many-of them at least, demand an outdoor occupation. Where will they go to find it? The obvious an- swer Is To what pert of Canada -will An article written by Ernest H. God- frey, F.S.S., on "PpsBlbitmes of Afrt- cultural Development in ap- pearing in the Ma? issue of The Jour- nal of Commerce, answers the tines- tloa Indirectly. Iri'the article is a table of the farm land under cultivation in j Canada, based on the 1911 census, to- gether with an estimate of possible farm land. And Alberta leads all pro- vinces In the total area of available farm land. Alberta boasts acres of farm land out of an area of acres. The total area of possible farm land In the Dominion is glyen at acres, of which Alberta boasts almost 25 per cent. Of Alberta's, farming area, only about or leas than 20 per cent of the possible present under culti- vation or otherwise In use for farming eperatlons.
