Ono would Imagine that, after the carnag. of tho most bloody years in the his tory of the world, the minds of men vould be satiated with the horrors they have witnessed Hie exper- iences they have gone through. But as much as we wish to take a hopeful outlook o[ the future there is no dis- guising that the signs are somewhat disquieting. There Is the speck in the Eastern horizon, at present no larger than a man's- hand, which may, however, develop into a storm of magnitude if not "wisely handled. The Bolshevist in- vasion of Persia has a menacing andjies: though it Is sincerely to bo trust portentous look, and, with the various led that they will not materialize. Tbe act that Germany hai completely In.-: he war. tUe situation iu Ueruii'uy. as t appears to he. the coming coni-jr enco of tbo Allies at Spa is a .rnportant one, in that there, resulting ;roni the San Kemo conference, ener- getic and determined steps are to lie .alien to rigidly enforce the ol the Treaty of Versailles both us to tiie payments due from Germany i'.i? obligations of disarmament un Ger- many. A hopeful aspect of present situ- ation is ihat after the recent expe-- ience of war tlie Allies wilt bend every energy to prevent anything which mean a call to anus. But at ths s.iine lime without anything of a scare, which the present outlook lias the ap- pearance of having. It.would be well for us to realise that 1'eace in the way of preventing a resumption of hostilit- ies is pot so firmly established :is it might be hoped for. It would not be well in the circumstances to give our- selves idly to the pleasures and the pursuits of peace without realising at the same time that there is still a tangle in the world's affairs which has to be smoothed out. There is a call for responsibility on the part ut those who guide the destinies of na- tions and a responsibility on tho indi- vidual to do his utmost lu repairing the economr damage caused by the war. with a sinking of differences and a striving for tho national good. It is not a time for the stirring of the flames of economic unrest within OUT borders when, it may be. the torch outside may be lit (U any time, calling for our effort to quench the same. It may be only a probability it is true. but none tho less it would he foolish to ignore the outlook by assuming a state of mind which refuses, to grasp tho force of what may be Do You Know?

The spread of Bolshevism lo the Far East, with its approach to the gateway oMndia, qiay be fruitful of trouble in our Indian Empire in encouraging the revolution- ary spirit which has made itself appar- ent in certain localities there. It we turn to Germany-the recent revelations there, which have the sanction of official authority as to their truth, arc somewhat foreboding. The only nation which appears lo still regard Germany at her true worth is France. Her suspicion of her neigh hor ia in no wise abated, as shown In tbe recent occupation of Frankfort and other towns in the neutral zone. Lon- don correspondents of the British dail- ies have drawn attention to the com pleteness with which the "Public Safe- ty Guards" of the German Government are armed, on the pretext of quelling internal strikes and revolts. It is also stated- that secret experiments have been In process in the Krupp factor- ies, In the production of armour-pierc- ing bullets levelled against tanks. Krupp's factories, though variously dis- guised as piano manufactories and loc- omotive and cement works, are giving their attention to armaments.

The heavy winds have done little damage though many have anxiety about tho damage tbe winds may have done in prematurely drying thai top soil. Generally speaking th9 mere are very optimistic, and arc! pushing ahead to complete all thelri seeding In tho smallest possible time. Wheat showing above gtcund seems to bo making good progress, and at this writing there have been no re- ports of any worms or grasshoppers. Those depending on horses have got on much better than expected, but tractors have; played an Important part In this season's work. Tbe end of tho preseat week will undoubtedly see all wheat In the ground, and good progress made on oats, ICKED UP.

The fact that tho Indebtedness of Canada stands today at the stupendous sum of well over two and a half bil- lions is brought home in tho individual obligation placed on liquidating this enormous debt. ment of Germany ordained Muenstcr as Iho place where- the Erliadl Naval Brigade had to be disarmed. With the excuse for this obtaining, officers and other ranks are stated to have flocked lo tho camp there, not with the idea of surrendering arms but for making U a rallying point for a projected coup d'etat. This, however, speaking from tho present, was evidently nipped in the bud and called for tbe French ad- vance of which we heard so much lately. At Muenster the German forces assembled would he within sinking distance ot the Rhine. They would in so doing secure the besl coal supply in Germany and if Krupps had made any locomotives they would have as good a transport as they could hope for. According to Germans themselves, Herr Mueller and his fellow Ministers, it Is asserted that the recent Pomer- anian scare was designed to dlslrac: The next epidemic in Albert is billed lo bo oil fever.

(Continued from Froat Page) Vheat seeding is .practically finished hroughont Ihe district. A slight rain in Tuesday night but not enough to do h0 crops any good. MACLEOD (From Our Own Correspondent) MACLEOD, May wind storm of Monday and Friday did some little harm to the seeding in parts of the district; it delayed tho further seeding tor the time being, but the weather has been warm. From so parts come reports that the seed was blown out, but only in a small acreage, and this will bp resown at once. The early sown grain is now- covering the ground.. Rain would be welcomed. Pastures are good, winds here last week. Trees are all iu leaf In Medlcluo Hat. Herbert E. Bayers died suddenly in the Cosgrove Building, Toronto.

Reports received v Carmangay concerning the recent vindstorms indicate that the damage real estate changing position has than at first anticipated. Some of the damage is said to have jeen serious. Many fanners indicate heavy losses. There -was more dirt in ihe air during the recent storm than many residents of this district have ever seen here before. CLARESHOLM (From Our Own Correspondent) CL-ARESHOLM, May there was an income tas on Oust the gov- ernment would have made a million here yesterday. The land west .of being light, started to move early in1 the pjorrimg and kept moving until about 2 p.m. JThe damage done by this wind was greater than that of Monday last. At this time of writing reports ot damage- are coming In but not as serious as expected. In places where the damage was thought to be great it Is extremely light, while places that have never been known to drift have shown the effects of tho high wind. The land between Clares- holm and Gramim'was the greatest sufferer by this wind but considering everything the people of this district can consider themselves very lucky as the moisture saved ihe situation In dozens of'Cases where In dry weather would have been a total loss. VULCAN (From Our Own Correspondent) May all seeded, oats and other grains per t. Most favorable conditions-pre- I. Grass growing very fast, mak- ing of pasture. Wheat up four inches In some caseu. Fine drizzling rain now in progress. COWLEV (From Our Own Correspondent) COWLBV, May is just about finished. The wind storm of Tuesday, Wednesday 'and Thursday, did a great deal of damage to the re- cently sown fields. In some places nearly all the seed was blown out. Several of the farmers are having 11 bad time with the cut worms and wire worm attacking the young shoots of grain. Apart from this things are pro- gressing favorably. With the effect It Is Eald it will have in reducing the freight charges on wheat by five cents a bushel, the ques- tion of the deepening of the St. rence waterway Is. o matter which should be of great Interest In the West. Our congratulations to Walker Dun- ham for being Ihe first of the youth of Ixithbrluge to gain the Rhodes Scholarship. The distinction he has at- tained Is a credit (o himself and n pride to the Ix-thbridge Schools where BARNWELL (From Our Own Correspondent) BAKNWELL, May condi- lions here at ,present are very dis- couraging. The wind has blown heav- ily all weeli and great damage has re- sulted to Ihe crops and the land in general. Hundreds of acres of grain have been blown out of the ground, and many of the farmers have lost every acre they had Into crop. The work on the Irrigation project is also greatly retarded as the -wind has blown the ditches so full of sand. The smaller ditches arc most of them en- tirely filled up, which will result In a great amount of extra work and ex- pense for the conlraclors. Every one is hoping for a good soaking rain In Ihe very near future. GRANLEA' 'From Our Own GHANL-BA, May strong south- -ester ranged through here Monday of last week, hut very litlle f any has been done to crops.
