May 20.--While the extremely low lemper/kturo of the past week ha* caused frosts the-results are not considered at all serious.

"The Hamilton Herald points^ out ttaat Ontario farmers lost about 100,-000 working hours In a fftiitless attempt to force the Ottawa QoTsm-mmt' to change Its mind about the coaa^ptlon of all 20-21-22 men, and than adds: . In atrong contratt to the' spirit hown by these Ontario and Quebec farmer* Is that ot the farmers ot Alberta. The executive ot the United Fumera ot Alberta yesterday adopted a ttrong resolution declaring its coK-Tlotion that the Government -would �ot have canoelled the exemptions of ' farm workers unless the need for ; mtB ware urgent and imperative, re-' cognising the fairness ot the order In-oounoll, and calling upon all farmers to accept^ the situation loyally and 'make the beit ot It. Thlt raiolutlon was probably intended a� a protest against the action ot the United Vaimert ot Ontario and Qnehec. It would seem that the farmers In 'tha west-la Alberta at least-are ipwn patrioUo and loyal, and lees ImitUb and Inoonsiderata, than are Htm tanners In the east. mtUAND'B GREAT OPPORTUNITY. \\ The Irish sltnaitlon to-d*r Is mora 'iprMarlou* than it has been at any 'time alnoe the war broke out. It Is fv(4�nt enoogh notf that, though the v^Jorlty in Ireland want 'Home ^ule, '.th*7 do not want eonaorlptlon, and ' JUord Osorga'baa declared ^that to .fat on* thejr must aocept the other. '^ffMlderins that Britain I* fighting Iraland'* battle* in Franc* the pro-IfafttUn look* fair enough. ! fXlia crnclal point just at present is ^a Vldenc* that the Sinn Fein 'MMQ to bava been willing to go the �iMftk of appaaling for German aid, |aA M a raaiUt ot thla plot 600 Sinn ^Mrs are In Jail. The disposal of man will probably indicate the Qoitanimett^^ intentions wHh - r^rd ! tlia Ireland trouble. ^ Altanwbile, Gen. Smuts, ot South CARRYING MAIL* THROUGH THE AIR. Though It not generally known, an {lir mail route has been established In the U.S. and thus a new form of transportation invades modem com meres. In this countrj". The aero plane Jiaa become familiar to us all in this war, but we expect to aee it put to peaceful pursuits after the war, and the establishment of an air mall route in the U.S. seems to be the first attempt In that direction,  'The Spokesman Review, discussing the innovation, saj-s: Without any malltrfous Intention of punning, the new aerial mall service may be said to be having ups and downs. The flying postman's first day on the New Tork-Phlladelphla-Wash-Ington line was successful In an experimental way, but the second was not so tranquil, engine trouble and one thing and another developing. This nnevennest Js, however, nothing serious against a project that is -admittedly In the experimental stage. The airplane malLtei-vlce will be permanent, add It win extend its activities to inany dlher larger cities than those in tha original route, Speed will always he the fundamental recommendation of the airplane post. The planes will not be likely to carry any great number of bulky aarceli,.nor will newspaper and magazine publishers use them to get iBBuea out in a hurry. But an airplane can accommodate a really appreciable number ot letters, and can take them from one place to another, barring accidents, in a space ot time that even the telegraph can not far exceed. Making from 100 to 120 mllea an hour, with no stops on tha schedule, the mailman In his plane ijan expedite letters beyond the dreams ot the fastest fait mall that ever rolled on wheels. Then too. the airplane mall will before long ba more dependable than one would be likely to think. Our men who are learning to fly tor the army, and navy will, after having bsoomo seasoned In work under war conditions, be able to get along fairly well even in bad weather. They fly at the front imder prett/ njuoh any kind ot conditions, and a breeze that woilld have kept the boldest aviator on tha ground a few years ago now only arouses hit sporting blood. After the war we ;will have thousands ol able filers, the meekest ot whom will be able to do stunts that used to be called sensational. It will be strange in deed it they wi^ not be able to keep tho mails hurrying along through the higher strata of the air. The outloo^ Is bright that before many years Canada will have a transcontinental air service from Halifax to Vancouver, thus adding atlU another Hnk to  the chain which binds the Dominion together.
