CROP PROSPECTS IN NORTHWESTERN STATES Minneapolis, May crop reports from throughout Minnesota and the Northwestern wheat and corn sections, indicate a general, optimis- fie sentiment prevails among the agri- culturists, although in most, sections the crop is from two to three weeks late.

Allison said that Miss Kdwards was his wife's sister. He said that she had looked after his business for ninny years, and that in -March last, he was very ili, and as he had not otherwise provided for her. lie decided to give her a share in the profits on this contract. The first agreement between Alli- son and Lignanti to share profits was made after the Canadian Car and Foundry Company deal went through in the spring of 1915. M. Johnston wanted to know the amount paid to Lignanti ou that occasion and finally Allison said that' the amount was over and "was for services and expenses." Allison said that in August, he got prices for H'.islies in "United States on a lot of war mater- ial of all kinds. He devoted a good deal of time to the work and worked as a friend and not as an adviser. "Gen. Hughes does not require advice from me, lie is ioo big a said Allison.

Allison stated that during the sum- mer lie had done some business with tho.shell committee in regard to price for fuses, etc. He had no idea who had fixed prices for fusea, and had not told any mem- bers oV the sheli- committee that he; receive a commission. i Allison insisted that he did not know that he would get a co-oiiiiift-j sfoh on the fuse- contract until Yoa-1 jttim had .It out." the Reichstag.

The war office statement says there was a slight French retirement on the Bethin- court-Cumieres road. On Saturday last the doors of the provincial jail here were opened to free John Reid, the Socialist, on a charge of uttering seditious language. JReid left the same day for Calgary j md Red. Deer and it is understood he will campaign the Red Deer con- stituency where' he has been nominat- ed as Socialist candidate for the Do- minion house. Reid was set free by Sheriff Young after serving four months of his 15 months' sentence. lie was brought from the.jail to the sheriff's olfice in the court house where he was given a severe lecture and warned that a repetition of his offense would mean that he would not only have to serve out the unexpired portion of the old j but a new sentence as well, j Reid declared then that he had not thought he was doing anything wrong last fall for on his campaign he was using the same literature as he had been using before, the war.

He said that city school boards who found it dilh'cult at present to engage supervisors, would he advised in of- j fering some encouragement to their i teachers to take these special course: in the summer school. The co-operation of the boards was invited in mating the summer school a success. Courses are given in agri- high, school science, ..household arts, art and mechanical. muiiual art P. physical training, first aid and home nursing. These courses, taken LOCAL OFFICERS IB by the teachers, enabled them' to In- troduce this work in the various grades at school without the neces- sity of securing supervisors. In many schools in the province" instruction in the above branches education have been introduced as a result of the summer school courses for the teach- ers, and this has been attended' ly great success. One outstanding instance is that of Taber, near Lethbridge, where the public school last year had .the best garden in the province, as a result of the training received by several of the teachers at' the summer schools and imparted to the pupils.
