War Traveling—A Retrospect.
J. West Goodwin of Company I, Six
ty-second regiment. Ohio volunteer in
fantry, has told the story of liow he
and his comrades went to war in 1SGL
According to Private Goodwin’s ac
count he and his fellow enlisted men
went to war on flat cars, locating them
selves as they could amid their wagons
and guns, and taking the smoke and
cinders and weather as they eafne. The
commissioned officers were provided
with passenger coaches lighted with
one candle each. The regiment, trav
eling in this style, reached West Vir
ginia just in time to enter the battle
of Rich mountain. Private Goodwin’s
pay was $8 a month and no provision
for the family left behind and no guar
anty that his Job would be held open
for his return.
Even the worst of war traveling in
1916 was luxury compared with the
best in 1861.—Buffalo Enquirer.

Increased Use of Milk.
That the high cost of living may be
reduced by the increased use of milk,
a highly nutritious and digestible food.
Is the opinion of A. E. Perkins, dairy
chemist at the Ohio experiment sta
tion. He says that a quart of milk is
equal in food value to three-fourths of
a pound of beefsteak, eight eggs, 15
pounds of oysters, two pounds of fish,
six pounds of tomatoes, or three
pounds of apples, and the milk is more
easily digested and far more econom
ical than many other foods.

The story of the wealth of Western
j Canada cannot be told too often; the
:rutli will bear rejieatings. And in
telling of it it is hoped that advantage
will be taken of the great opportuni
ties that Western Canada offers by
those who are today struggling for a
, mere existence, by those who are oc
cupying lands, high in price and high
in rentals.
From grain, live stock and dairying

pouuunii hum v■ Miipany says:
Some of our contract holders have paid
off their purchase money on lands
bought a year ago nut of this year’s
crop, and what one man can do anoth
er can do. Thousands of Southern Al
oerta farmers harvested an average
of 40 to oO bushels of No. 1 wheat to
the acre. These farmers have more
real money to spend than any other
people on the American Continent. J.
D. Johnston of Bladsworth. Sask.. left
Johnson County. Kansas, seven years
ago When he left he had $660 in
cash, six mules, some settler's effects
and an equity in some prairie land.
Mr. Johnston tells his story:
“In my seven years' residence in
Saskatchewan. I have raised seven
good crops the value of this year's
crop alone being Twenty thousand dol
lars. I now own Two Sections of im
proved land. 17 horses and mules, 40
cattle, a large steam thresher and a
full line of farm machinery.”
We have made five trips to Kansas,
one trip to the Pacific Coast and re
turn. We have enjoyed the society of
a class of people than whom none oet
ter can be found. The climate is
healthful and invigorating. The soil
is fertile and productive, well adapted
for the production of the best quality
and large yields of all cereals and
vegetables, wild and tame grasses. II
is an excellent stock country.”
The question of taxes is one that
carrier with it considerable weight.
Coming from a man like Mr. Johnston
the same weight should be given the
answer. He says:
The tax system especially commends
itself to me as being simple, reason
able and just. All direct taxes are
levied on the land at its appraised
market value, exclusive of improve
ments thereon. No tax on personal
property. This tends to discourage
the holding of lands by speculators
who prevent its cultivation or improve
ment. hoping to realize profits from the
enhanced value of their holdings due
to the industrial activities of the bona
fide settlers. It tends to encourage the
settlers to rear substantial improve
ments upon their land without paying
a penalty in the form of taxation
therefor. It encourages the raising of
live stock and the possession of other
personal property necessary to the de
velopment of the country.
“The laws are well and economically
administered. Citizens of the Domin
ion vote on election of members of
parliament and members of thp Pro
vincial assembly, while on questions
of local Improvements and school mat
ters the franchise is exercised by rate
payers. irrespective of citizenship.
The people are enterprising, school
facilities are good Taxation, just and
reasonable. Military service volun
tary. Patriotic fervor unsurpassed,
law and order the rule, and crime the
rare exception. It is the land of
banks, schools, telephones, grain ’le
vators. broad, fertile acres, good cli
mate. good citizenship and abounding
In opportunities for the industrious
man or woman of good morals, in
short, the land of promise and fulfill
ment. I know of no better anywhere. ’
