ANOTHER RAID MAnEROFPOilllCS Hamilton, Ont., May 24.-*A sharp difference of opinion was manifested yesterday at the first convonlion of the F-rovlnclal Great War Veterans' AsROciatton In regard to resolution brought forward by tho resolutions comraftteo that the association put up candidates In municipal, provincial and dominion elections, In other words "to enter politics." ' The meeting >was further signnlllzed during the afternoon by speeches from Colonel J, A. Currte and J. H. Burn-ham, M.P., attacking tho recent clvlt service bill, abolishing patronage and thus taking away, they declared, a preference to employ returned soldiers. Their speeches were received with applause. The alignment for and against entering politics was pretty much on the basis of large cities versus the rest of tho province. The whole association, however, was In favor of appointing a )>arllnmentary committee to look after the association's Interests at Ottawa. A labor delegation from Toronto naked leave to address tonight's mooting tor twenty minutes, but the request was refused. "We are not going to pull labor's chestnuts out of tho fire," said one delegate. "Our comrades widows and children first."

SIR JOHN AIRD.GeiKnlMiiiM� V.C BROWN. Sup'l of CctiMl W��efii Bnnehw Pvery individual in the home poultry flock should show vigor and strength. Size (not tat), erectness, activity, bright eye, and red comb are favor-ible points Indicating good constitution. Drooping tall or wing, weakened, legs, bead and neck not erect denote weakness. . Pullets bred from ?ood layers are preferable. A good layer will be a hearty feedei" and usually a vigorous worker. Pullets hatched early will prove better winter layers. The poultry house should be built as low as possible without danger of the attendants bumping their heads against the celling. A low house Is more easily warmed than a high one. POWER!

Is also adding considerably to the value of the farm In dollars and cents. People looking for a farm will drive straight past the one with fertile acres and that stark, bare look of a treeless, shrubless farmyard, and take kindly to the place, where the house is /cuddled down in a nest of good planting, and where the velvety stretch of lawn invites- him to walk and appreciate the differenca between a houso and a home. Put In a fluick growing tree or two. They will soon be full of bird songs In the early morning, and under their branches you will find gratetul shade In the afternoon. Take a tew hours to prepare the soil and tuck In a tew plants for your soul's sake. Environment has a powerful Influence on the Individual,,especially on [ the impressionable child. A beautiful ' yard suggests care, culture, refinement, while a rugged, uncouth, ill-kept school ground is one of the most depressing scenes one can run across. With the Mitchell Nursery at Coal-dale close at hand, there Is no reason why every farm In Southern Alberta should not be surrounded by beautiful shade trees.
