Britain is fight- Ing for freedom, a cause that was the real foundation of the labor movement today. ID the fighting ranks labor is largely represented; it possesses the great proportion of the men in the trenches. Labor can hold its head high at this time. Its men have been ready to answer the coun- try's call and they have fought equal to a to farm- ers growing grain between 1916 and in, the .British Isles. As the Toronto World clearly points out, the Canadian farmer has a special claim for on the Imperial Government; for Great Britain is the only country to which Canada can sell wheat. On the other hand, Great Britain is not so limited in purchasing, since she can buy from the United States. Thk fact explains the spread between the "Win- nipeg and Chicago prices. The News does not suggest that the whole Canadian crop be pur- chased at a high price; but H does contend that something should be done to prevent the market going to pieces. In discussing this iy.

The most sensible proposal is that the farmers should not overload the market. Hold the grain is the advice given by those who desire, to hold up the price. Tiii? advice is all right, but the trouble with our farmers is that they cannot heed the advice unless (here is co-operation from other -sources. There arc many jthat arc difficult to "IE the government bought up the crop the price might go lower instead of higher." he said. "It's absurd to think the British government would buy up the entire-crop just to make a -better price for the farmer. If the government needs the crop it will buy it; If it doesn't need It, it won't, that's all. If the government felt there might be a shortage of wheat in Great Britain or amone the Allies, the government might rtwy the crop, but it certainly to fix a 'price.

John Power in New York Times Doctors and Danger Most men's life-work is attended by certain dangers and that of the doctors is no exception. There are dangers of con- tagion, and special dangers that the surgeon faces every .time he performs an operation. That is one reason why the doctor's life, more than that of most people, needs the protection of insurance of the highest as is provided by a Canada Life Guaranteed Monthly Income policy. This form of policy is the best: yet devised. It is particularly suited to the needs of the professional man and gives sure, continued protection to the beneficiary and profitable investment to the policy- holder. It is issued by the Raymond, Sept. Ilayniond fair and carnival was brought to successful termination last evenini Yesterday tin- attendance was gooi about six hundred people passing through the gates. The fair manage- ment is well pleased with the ready response of the neople in view ot' the j business of tlie season. Tlie judging was finished in the morning, and the afternoon was devoted to sports. The poultry department was closed for ii few hours in the morning, the judge not having finished his very riiflicult task, l.ethbridgc fanciers made heavy winnings in this section. Among the prize winners were not ic- ed the names of the following well known breeders from Lethbridge, Gib- bons, Speucc, Dr. Thompson, 'Hum- phries and Jones. Ham.Uon, of Leth- bridge, carried off everything in ban- tams. Woodruff of Magrath, showed some excellent pens of Khodc Islands, Minnrcas and Hatred -Hocks. His im- ported Cornish chickens attracted considerable attention. Among local breeders, the most prominent win- ners were Lay cook, Blair and Stone.! There were no turkeys and the sbow-j ing of geese and ducks for some rca-! son was light. B. Grand was in: charge of the poultry department. I The garden competition conducted! by the lli-partment of Agriculture j was won by II. Kimball, followed! tl.qsely by H. Kveson and James S. third. The gardens were all very creditable and scored high. H. S. Allen and D. F. Fawns ex- hibited corn that stood easilv twelve feet high. Such corn has never before been seen in" this-section and is a demonstration of what can be raised. An interesting exhibit was a few stalks of sugar, caiie grown by an energetic lad of 0 years named. Glen Woolky. The cane was a brand new revelation of the fertility of South- ern Alberta's productive" soil, and was continuously surrounded by a .curious crowd. The Raymond fair-carnival is now a matter of history, ft lias resulted in much good. Not only has the far- mer been benefitted by competition with his neighbor, but the senti- ments oi good-fellowship between the people of the south, especially be- twecn Raymond and Lethbriggc, has! heon made stronger. The rosult of j eloser association and the under- standing of each other's point of view can have only one result, the solidifying of the people in the great work of estaUishing a pure, perma- nent, united community.
