When this is thoroughly done the broken heads and some of the chaff are separated out by sifting through a suitably sized screen. The chaff and dust thai still remain are taken out by letting the grain fall from one pan to another through the air outside on a windy day. Threshed in this way there is no possibility of any noxious weeds or even other varieties of grain becoming mixed witii the hand select- ed seed as then, would he were it cleaned through any machine that was used for other grain. The sowing of pure, plump seed of a suitable variety is one of the most important w-ays to secure productive crop yields. In or- der to band select profitably the pro- per types of heads must be known. In last week's Guide photographs appear. ,d showing the most desirable types of heads to look for in the growing crop, and also those which to avoid.. Head selection may appear to require i good deal of extra work just when the Inisy season is beginning on the farm. but any extra time spent on getting the best beads for cadi year's seed will be more than repaid in improve- ment in yield and sample in succeed- ing years.

Calgary, Oct. Pearce, of the natural resources department of: the C.P.R., spoke before the afternoon sitting of the Dominion royal commis- sion, which is engaged iu making an inventory of the -resources of the em- plrc, in the ccimcil chamber yester- J day. Mr, Pearce gave a large amount 1 of' interesting and valuable data re- garding the quantity, availability, loca- tion and suitability of agricultural land areas in Alberta, especially in the I Peace river region. The session was very brief, adjourning at 4 o'clock. President Wood, of the U.K said that cooperation between the formers in all their affairs, for. their best interests as a class, was the ob- ject of his organization, but that their highest object, ultimately, would be to co-operate for the benefit all classes in the community. Conditions Improving Mr.' Wood, in reply to a question, said that in his opinion conditions were steadily improving in this coun- try, that the era" of speculation had passed and that the conditions which had prevailed in former years had passed. The people who wete now set- tling the province came with the in- tention of remaining permanently and that the class which .-had come only with the idea a quick pro- fit had already gone; Mr. Wood the farmers and the banks were co-operating well for the development of the country. The one thing needful for the grain grow- ing business, he thought, was an all- the-year-round market. George Lane told a lot about the livestock interest, gleaned from his 32 years' experience in this country. He declared that Alberta was as good a stock raising country as there was in the world and that there was no part of the United States which could pro- duce cattle, horses, sheen and hogs better and cheaper, than this province could. George Lane on Sheep To .Commissioner Sinclair Zealand, a great sheep raising od'mtry, Mr. Lane said that Alberta was a good country for sheep, but that conditions were not very favorable just now, on account of the high prices prevailing on the other side of the boundary. Coasiderable capital'was required to make a success of 'the sheep raising industry here. -However, there was still enough grass going to waste in the province to raise more sheep. Mr." Lane said that Canadian trans- portation companies treated the stock- men well. He was not so -mindly nis- posed toward the steamship cpmpan- ies and he pointed out in energetic language how the business was hamp- ered by Canadian tariff restrictions. F. Collicutt, cattle breeder, said that the demaud for high" class cattle was good tin'..Alberta and constantly in- creasing. BELGIAN CHILDREN ARE WORTH SAVING Little Canaille Casier, aged 13, ir an example ot his race. Liitle Cam ielle is an orphan. At least he does not know where his father and mother tfiey are jause they are Belgians, and when the Jirst tide of Hermans came into Belgium they became separated. Undaunted, little Camilla joined Ilia French army and became attached to a battery where he remained until a children's society took him in hand. Camille objected at first to leaving liis soldier friends hut finally sub- mitted with the observation that "nrdcr- are orders and are to be obeyed." These urt: (he children, this is tho type, that Canada is asked to help. Camille would have starved had 1m remained behind when the French army picked him up. Yes, perhaps ho would have died like many others as the result of a Germaa bayonet thrust. Instead ho fought as thous- ands of others ure doing, either ac- tually or morally.
