Lad Takes Up His
Dog's Battle and
Suffers Bad Bite
"Sonnv" Yaffe. 5-vear-old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Yaffe, 26 J 7
Franklin street, has a small brown
dog named "IVanuts." Xow you can
n-ast "IVanuts.' and you can bark
ami prowl at him, if the latter mode
of expression is your disposition. Hut
it perchance you are a laifte dog with
sharp teeth and a thirst for battle,
don't try to crack 'Teauuts' while
' Sonny" is about.
Such a cant. ie essayed the job late
Friday afternoon and "Sonny" armed
with a small hall bat jumped into the
fray. After a considerable hattle
"Sonny" drove the bin dR off, but
not before he was bitten severely on
the right check and left arm. Offi
cer A. C. Anderson later allied him
self with the "Sonny" and "l'eauuts"
alliance, and put bullet through the
big stray's head. "Sonny" and 'Tea
nuts" are doing well.

Farm Labor Available.
It is believed that the plan for
bringing back soldiers from the front
will have the ellcct of providing suf
ficient farm labor practically immedi
ately. In announcing the war office's
consent to the transfer, an expert told
the agricultural society that in Kng
land and Scotland, as well as in Ire
land, the farms in many districts bad
fallen far below their minimum in
the matter of labor.
The tendency to regard more seri
ously the country's capacity for grow
ing larger crops is illustrated by the
figures of the wheat, bailey and oats
crops in England and Wales. Wheat
and oats were grown in larger quan
tities, though the barley crops were
much smaller. There were 5.4S9.9.W
acres devoted to the three cereals in
England and Wales in I'J 15, an in
crease of 248.044 acres as compared
with 1914. The greatest increase in
acreage was devoted to wheat, or 2,
170,170 acres in all. the figure repre
senting an increase of $b2,t72 acres
(20 per cent), greater than in 1914,
and 25 per cent greater than during
any of the years between 1905 and
1915. Every country returned in
creased areas, the total for Wales of
11,230 acres (31 per cent), being the
The returns for 1915 give Z.PKS.047
acres under oats, an increase of 158,
421 acres as compared with 1914, but
only 24,8b9 acres above the average
for the last ten years. The whole of
this increase was in England. The
reduction of the areas under barley
amounted to 158,421 acres, the total
acreage of 1,231,722 being the lowest
yet recorded. Perhaps to no in
dividual as much as to the Earl of
Selborne is due the credit of bring
ing home to the people of all classes
the importance of taking prompt

laboier's wotk milking and feeding
and hmkiiig after the stock like

mastered the work of handling horses
and can get as much work out of a
team as any man.
"liecause of the splendid manner in
which the women ha e risen to the
occasion in this respect at a time
when farm work is of vital im
portance, to the nation, we feel justi
fied in the belief that we are going to
pull agriculture through this crisis in
spite ot many apparently insuperable
"We realize that the problem of
making as much progress as we
lid m war tunc presents its
handicaps. Among these, in addition
to the shortage of farm labor already
indicated, is the difficulty of obtain
ing sufficient supplies of fertilizers
and modei ii machinery that are so
necessary in farming to the greatest
advantage now. Then there is the
shortage in shipping tonnage, restrict
ing at many turns our requirements
in the matter of supplies from over
seas. Ask Full Cultivation.
."We have asked the farmer to main
tain the full cultivation of the soil
an I upkeep of his docks and
herds during the course of th-j war.
and to iiKH'isf them whenever pos
sible. I nikr the unparalleled diffi
culties encountered he has responded
wonderfully. The difficulties of this
particular season will be understood,
in view of our efforts to replace with
women the men absent from the soil.
"Owing to the custom being against
women working on the land in Eng
land, the problem has been particu
larly difficult. The English type of
fa i m laborer is highly skilled and a
fine fellow. He would rather have
his women folk looking after the
home and maintaining the children
and working less about the farm,
"The only English counties in
which exception is found to this at
titude, or where women work habit
ually on the land are Northumber
land, Cumberland, and Westmoreland
and parts of Durham. i
"Of course there is a distinction be
tween what countries with highly cen
tralized governments, like those of
France and Cermany, can accomplish
in such a change in national life as we
are attempting here in England and
in what we can accomplish. I refer
to their facilities for quick organiza
tion. In France, for instance, there
is a prefect in every department and
a mayor in every commune, while
practically the whole of Germany's
population is at the order of the gov
ernment. What those countries can

It must he remembered first that up

"The bill's effect in transferring the
basis of power from land ownership
was manifested gradually, and that

the seventies. That was with the fal:

when the war broke out. Although it
had placed the farmer so he was mak
ing a good commercial profit ten
years before the war, every year saw
less land under cultivation and more
acres devoted to grass. The increas
in the areas going to grass was due
to the fact that farmers could make
a good living in that way with less, and the tuemorv of the terrible
experience of the depression."
Lord Selborne will have something
to do with the revival of agriculture,
even now that he has resigned his
place as president of the Board of
Agriculture, as the prime minister has
invited him to co-operate with him in
the task of reconstruction of agricul
ture after the war.
Speaking before the Agricultural
Organization society, Lord Selborne
"Increased food production during
the war is a sacred national duty. The
man on a Hampshire farm can strike
a blow for England equally with his
son in Flanders. The manner in
which women have responded to the
call of duty in this war should make
it impossible for any man to think
them less patriotic, less capable of
comprehending a great issue, less
firm in purpose or less prone to sac
rifice than men." He made a plea
for better wages for farm laborers,
better houses, and for a multiplication
of the occupying owners of land
drawn from the laboring classes."

Athens, July 25. A dramatic mo

given recently in the stadium. The
jumping and riding exhibitions were
over. The white-skirted evzones had
marched impressively past the royal
tribune, and two regiments of soldiers
were drawn up before King Constan-
I tine and (Jueen Sophie to sing lireek
tolk songs. Several songs passed
pleasantly enough. Then there came
one about the exploits of Constantine

I Even to t hose who could not under
