Get Cheap and Produc
Reports nro to hand that thcro will
to n largo Influx of settlers from tho
United States Into tho Canadlnu West
during tho coming Spring. For a time
there has been a falling off, on account
of the fenr of conscription, which of
course was not possible, and which tho
Canadian Government gnvo every as
surance would not be put Into opera
tion. In any case It would not affect
tho American settler, and moro thnn
that the man who was working on tho
farm, helping to produce tho grnln
that goes to feed those who aro at war,
would not be affected.
The excellent yields of tho Western
Canada crops, and the high prices se
cured Is having Its Influence on those
looking for homes. The authenticated
reports that have been sent out from
time to time that this farmer and that
farmer had paid for their entire farm
holdings out of ono crop has reached
. the ears of the man looking for a farm.
When he hears that G. n. Bentty of
Nanton, Alberta, had G70 bushels of
wheat from 12 acres or an average of
60 bushels to tho ncre, ho becomes
Interested. When he learns that Sid
ney B. Phillips of Betldeford, Alberta,
. threshed ten hundred and fifty-three
bushels of wheat, the average being
52 bushels per acre, his Interest Is
further aroused. Thos. Long of Loth
bridge had 120 bushels of oats to the
acre from a field of 25 acres, W.
Qulnn of Milk River had 0,091 bushels
of wheat from 100 acres, an average
of GO bushels per ncre, and Robert
Tacknbcrry of Nobleford makes afllda
vlt that he had an nvcrngo of seventy
six bushels of wheat per acre from a
Oekl of 10.G3 acres. Thos.Boulton of tho
same plnce makes affidavit that from
fifty acres he had a yield of fifty-threo
bushels of wheat per acre. Newell J.
Noble's affidavit of getting 54 bushels
per acre from 1,000 acres stands out
most strongly as evidence of what the
wheat grower can do. This affidavit Is
strengthened by a paragraph stating
that he had 122 bushels and 30 lbs. per
ncre from 39-l.QP acres. Mrs. Nancy
Coe makes affidavit that on her farm
at Nobleford she threshed six thou
sand one hundred and ten bushels of
wheat from one hundred and fifteen
Acres, or fifty-three bushels and eight
lbs. per acre, and from a flnx field
(stubblp field) she got 20 bushels and
US pounds per ncre.
It cannot be-said that these were
freak yields because so many had such
great success. When these reports are
read, the mariUboklng for a farm be
These are only a few of the reasons
that will cause a largo Influx of Amer

during the coming Spring.
The farmers now resident In Mani

are low and Free homestead land can
be had In many districts and the home

takes an expert to manage the cutting

opens diagonally across the front and
hc opening disappears under an ex-
tension of tho front that suggests a
wide girdle. This is brought around

The sleeves are made of georgette

sleeves of satin for the forearm. They
are headed by deep cuffs at the elbow

nro many kinds of blouses to choose
from this spring. There nro two-piece
blouses, sweater blouses, kimono

ally of silk or satin made to slip on

GROWTH OF IMPROVED ROADS
Mileage of Surfaced Highways Has
Been Increasing at Rate of
16,000 Mllea Yearly.
Rnpld increase In total expendi
tures for roads nnd bridges, growth
of building nnd maintenance activities
under state supervision, nnd a sharp
decreaso In the proportion of contribu
tions In the form of statute labor
mark tho development of highway
work In tho United States during the
past 12 years. These facts are
brought out by statistics for tho cal
endar year 1015, recently compiled by
the olllco of public ronda and rural en
gineering of the department.
Tho total length of public roads In
the United Stntes outside tho limits
of Incorporated towns nnd cities was
about 2,-ir2,000 jnllos on January 1,
1010. Of this, about 277,000 miles,
or 11.3 per cent, wore Improved with
some form of surfacing. Tho mile
age of surfaced roads has been In
creasing at the rate of about 10,000 n
year, and In 1015 npproxlmntcly one
half of this Increase was made tinder
the supervision of state highway de
partments. In addition theso de-
partments supervised tho malntenanco
of nearly 52,000 miles of main and
Tho Increase In expenditures for
road and brldgo work In tho United
Stntes has been from npproxlnmtely
?SO,000,000 per year In 1001 to about
282,000,000 in 1015, nn Increase of
more than 250 per cent. Tho expendi
ture of state funds during this snmo
period Increased from about $2,550,000
to more than ?53,000,000. In nddltlon,
more than $27,000,000 of local funds
was spent under state supervision In
1015, bringing tho total road and
bridge expenditures managed by tho
states to $S0,-115,G00. This amount Is
greater than tho total expenditures for
roads and bridges from nil sources In
An Increase In the uses of hotter and
moro expensive types of roads also Is
shown by the recently compiled statis
tics. This development has been due,
In large part, to the great Increase In
automobile traffic. It is estimated
that thero are now approximately two
and one-half million automobiles In
use of the roads of the country, or
one car for every mile of road. This
present motor traffic Is In excess of
traffic of all sorts 12 years ago.
The cash road and bridge expendi
tures of the United States averaged
only $28 per mile of rural roads in
1001. In 1015 this average had grown
to $100 per mile. New Jersey led all
other stntes, both In 1001 nnd In 1015,
with $221 and $175 per mile, respec
tively. Nevada made tho least expendi
ture In both years -$3.72 per mile In
1004 and $17 per mile In 1015.
COUNTY IS BUYING TROUBLE
Road That Will Not Outlast Its Cost
Is Liability Finally Becomes
a Total Loss.
Whon u county or township builds
n road that will not outlust Its cost,
that county or township Is buying
trouhlo and paying cash for It. It
borrows money to buy n liability
creates n debt to buy something that
will bo u continual expense until It
finally becomes u total loss through
being worn out. And borrowing
money to build u road that will not

and allow the time of the farm laborer, who has filed on the land, to
apply as residence duties, the same as if he actually had Hved on it.
Another special concession is the reduction of one year in the time
to complete duties. Two years instead of three as heretofore, but
only to men working on the farms for at least six months in 1917.
This appeal for farm help is in no way connected with enlistment
for military service but solely to increase agricultural output" A won
