military figure of tho hour in tho

Canada Offers 160 Acres

Bonus of Western Canada Land to Men Assisting in
Maintaining Needed Grain Production
The demand for farm labor in Canada is great. As an inducement
to secure the necessary help at once, Canada will give
ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY ACRES OF

and allow the time of the farm laborer, who has filed on the land, to

A the? special concession is the reduction of one year in the time
to Smpleto 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 forfarm help is in no way connected with enlistment
for mifiary service but solely to incrasecu

Although considerable fighting took

Tho uprising boro tho character
rather of a mock revolution staged by
an immense audience. Cossacks charg

that they playfully dispersed. Tho
troops exchanged good-natured raillery
with tho worklngmon and women and
as they rode wero cheered by tho populace.

Tho most phenomenal feature of tho

transition whereby tho control of tlio
