This means an increase of !I3 l-.'l per cent, in aci'nue during four years. Tho increase was In the wheat acreage, which rose from 10,293,900 acre:-, in t!H ( to 17,3ri.'i,!mj In In tbe first year of the war the wheat areas wept increased by nearly 5,000,000 acres, while during; tho present, year then- was a further Increase of about 2,,n(iu,iMi(i acp-s. Kroni l'.H-l to i:us the. flax acreage inure (Man doubled. When one recalls ho v.. 'train prices have soared it is readily realized what the large increases In (he variotii yields have .meant in money., In l'.il'i the average' price of wheat was 91c, j whereas today No. I Northern lirint;s I SU.lH 'it Koi-t William.

Hut they only tell a part of the story. No country can show better remits iu proportion to population. It Is n triumph of resoluteness and resourcefulness.; I'urthormore, the Canadian farmer, may look forward to the future with1 confidence, for the world ot present-nceda all the food he cap produce. . englandIsto combat ihe flu She lets Sunlight clo the work' / /t t/j Read Sunlight $5000 guarantee of purity Sunlight dispels the shadow that once hong over wash day IN fact many women do not say "wash day" any more. They say "Sunlight Day". It's a genuine pleasure to use Sunlight Soap because it means an econorhical wash, it means a quick wash. Why? Because, Sunlight is absolutely pure- you need only half the quantity as compared with ordinary soaps, nor will Sunlight harm any delicate fabrics, or hurt your hands. And it really takes the labour out of the washing in surprisingly-little time as you will see by following the directions.- LEVER BROTHERS EI MITE)?.
