By Wellington IS AH mmfvmfi, WILL ESTABLISH jCanadiah Government Announces Plan "to Provide Agric� ultural Training for � Soldiers ' OttawB.-Hon. Arthur Melghen, miiUftter of the Interior in a statement just'lsslied announced the plans under the Land Settlement Act for soldiers' scheme, under which soldiers 'will gain agricultural experience and be enabled to go on-tho land. The statement as follows:. 'lAdequate facilities are i>roTlded by the Soldiers' Settlement Board to en-al)Ie,men desirous vif taking up land imder, the Soldier Settlement -Act' to obtain the experience and qualiflca-tiphs necessary. In order to utilize the dempbiUzatlo'h peil'od, which will extend OTer many'months, a;number of training farms will be established In Great Britain. Preliminary steps have: already ;been taken to this end by the board in conjunction with the Canadian. department of militia and the IChalci �Dnlverslty. The farn|is will be organized as schools of Instruction in � the' 'essflhttals of farming under Canadian conditions. They will provide nn Intensive OQurae of about three itionths .duratioi, the staffs, being se-Jected from service men'v^ho,were lorniorly' Conneite'd .with agricultural teachjjng., /�. .'lA course of wort' has been prepared at tile request of the board by the commissioner of agricultural iii-stTUCtlon, W.. Jp Black for use both 5n Canada and Great Britain. It bears little / similarity to, the regular agricultural college course being designed^ to teach inexperienced men the every; day operations of the farm rather than' the;*cientlflc principles underlying agriculture. It is proposed by Its means to carry the men along from a point where they know nothing of farming lo;a |io|ntf^wh&r^e:they > that the best school Is/the �weTJ-taannged (farm, provldtd the ifamw himself Is: sympathetically dtepogadi 9o i^ucb depends on this aspect of the matter that a very careful selection will 'bc^ made among the IprpipreBBlye fanners of the country, who are lirepa;red to render public i^lifted flSFTlce Jii'this coQneotlon. ; WinBe'Follow-Up Sehtme. .��tt Is' the Intention to Inaugurate h follow-up fscheme with the cooperation: of proylnclal agricultural ,de-U^nients, whereby the men will 'b6 advised and Instructed after they go � upon the land.

So far as reported,' the total amounts to $285,000, and it Is expected that between three, hundred and. ninety and four hundred thousand w'.ll be the final figures for Fernie district. TIjIb.Ib a grand showing when the fact'that the Victory Loan committee had to devote two weeks of Its time exclusively, to the battle against the virulent attack of the influenza, Which Ifadiat one time over fifteen hundred patients, suffering from the rapid spread of the epidemic is taken into account. Many members' of the committee were sufferers and had to go to bed during jthe last wnek. ' ' Two deaths Two deaths from the influenza are tiv report today; J.

There are several. outside patients still being treated, and this will be the case for some time yet but: It is felt that the epidemic is now under sa control, and with due caution there will be no further outbreak. .. * The puUic schools have been- closed until after the Christmas ho^days, and most of the teachers are going to their homes for a very much needed rest. � v troops have made" solemn entry into Saarbur, Diesez and Mohrangan.
