That is the story of the triumph of Henry Holmes from the time his wheat was cut. A Scientific Farmer. But .the story really dates back fur- ther than that. Jt is simply another; story of success in Soutliein Alberta by a man who wiso enough to study scientific fanning. Mr. Holmes is a scientific farmer; He believes in farming on business was with lhis_idea in mind that h, principles, and for that reason he fol- lows scientiiic methods, believing jthe running.

Others say that the chief was quite right, that if his men were not 'working in accord with him, either they had to go or the fcrce wculd never be reorganized on a proper basis.. The men who would work in accord with the rest of the force were to be given every oppor- tunity to crake good, and if the weed- ing-out process eliminated a few, it was to be for the good of as a whole.

The oath which they take when joining the force distinctly states that their ap- pointment will terminate when notice is given. The men are, therefore, lia- ble to prosecution for of con- tract, and a heavy penalty inflicted. None of the men who quit the force will receive an honorable discharge.
