Tho cheese Industry throughout
Western Canada today Is in a highly
flourishing condition anil is bound In
a very short time to become much
more important. The war has created
a great demand for that article, and
Its use abroad has given It a lot of
useful advertising. The article known
br Canadian cheese is now sought not
only by the soldier In the trenches,
but by the ordinary civilian consumer,
who, having used It, Is quick to ap-
preciate its value. This means that
after the war there will be a demand
created for It that would not other-
wise have been. Up to the present
til? war needs have limited the local
supply, but with the Increased effort
that Is now being put forth It Is hoped
that this will he met. As a matter of
course the prices are high, nnd tho

The cheese season Is now fully open
and there Is every prospect of an ex-
cellent year because the high price
which obtained last year will undoubt-
edly he maintained this season. West-
ern Canada has all the natural re-
sources for the making of cheese, the
feed and the cool nights, two things
essential, and In time It Is bound to
become one of the driest cheese coun-
tries of the continent.
The lower foothills of Alberta, used
only at the present time as rnnges or
for no purpose, will In time produce
cheese In great quantities, nnd doubt-
less will soon equal tho famous up-
lands of Denmark.
The cool nights mean the better
keeping of milk and cream nnd
cheese, nnd that Is n great thing foi

such as exist on the long slopes from
the Rockies eastward.
The hog market, which may bo
classed as an adjunct of farming, Is j

Have you seen a herd of mountain
ponies break down a road? So they
rushed In, the Island girls who came to
our friend's lecture. No one elso
enme. They flung themselves about
the room until they were wlnjed.
Then they became less disorderly. At
last, hnvlng trepanned them between
tchool desks, our friend began his lec-
ture. When he was three-quarters
through they showed some disposition
to break away. But the power of the
human eye held them for a space long-
er. Then it became necessary to ap-
ply the voice threateningly: "Now
Brlghld," "Now Oona," "Now Slav."
At last, by opening wide the door, he
signified that the lecture was over.
Brlghid, Oona, Slav, Cauth and tho
others bolted out.
Comfort of Peat Fires.
The peat fires make It possible ti.
live in houses that are drenched with
constant rain. On the outside walls
where the thatch drips down you see
the green of the damp. But Inside,
with the pile of burning peat on the
hearth, everything is dry and warm.
Naturally, the people do not keep their
good friends the horse or the cow
from the kindly warmth. The family
sits about the fire, and at the end of
the room the horse stands as quiet
and as well-behaved as a guest could
be. From Infancy the children are In-
timate with the animals; at three one
can drive the cow where it should go,
at five one rides on a pony behind
hampers of sea weed. The people
have a fuller life than those who have

From April until October the young
men and women of the Island work
for the farmers of England and East
Scotland, crossing over with the gangs
that go from the west of Ireland. For
the rest of the year the young men
stay on the Island, putting ln their
time working on fields on which the
plow cannot be put or fishing ln boats
that do not go miles out to sea. The
main Income of the Island Is earned
abroad. The young men and women
come back with from £12 to £20
in their pockets. This goeB to pay
the rent, the shop debts, or buys tea
and the bag of flour or meal. The
English that the young men can speak
Is scanty and is eked out with a good
many oaths. Abroad they have the
name of being good workers.
Music of Crickets and Sea.
In our friend's room the peat fire Is
lighted also. He takes up his fiddle I
and sits down on his bed until tho
barefooted girl comes into the room
with an apron full of peat. The fire Is
renewed, and It Is time to go to bed.
A mattress In laid on the floor, and
our friend shows us liow to make a
sailor's bed, folding the blanket into a
sleeping bag, into which we insert
ourselves. Then we lie down at tho
fire. The visitors have left the room
above and the people of the house
have gone to bed.
It is now the hour of the crickets.
They riot about the fire in the living
room, making a continuous noise. And
the noise of the crickets has for n
background the noise of tho sea—a
score of yards from the house it
dashes upon the island. But at last
comes sleep, and we hear no more un-
til a sea bird cries ln tho silence of the
morning. Then a young harvester
comes Into tho room with another arm- J
ful of peat, and tho fire, which was
slumbering down ln the ashes, breaks
again. Bread and tea and eggs
soon come our way, and our friend
talks of taking us to shoot wild goatl ;
