Democracy and Liberty are not al-
ways synonymous, perhaps, but they
mean the same to us now, certainly.
A military autocracy, after more than
forty years of thorough and cunning
pre|utratlon, a great part of It by means
of weapons of our own Invention, has
thrust our Itemocracy und our Liberty
Into the crucible to teat It out, to see
w hether It would hold good. They did
not believe It would hold good, those
Prussian militarists; they do not be-
lieve It yet. We believe It will, but our
belief has been made up heretofore
largely of egotism and blindness.
Democracy und Liberty, the world's
with our own, la now undergoing the
supreme test. Of course there Is dross,
snd It Is coming to the top rapidly.
There la Inefficiency, mismanagement,
grave mistakes that even our national
leaders have made; there has been
some graft, no doubt; there has been
some playing of politics; there has
been profiteering, but all this Is only
the dross floating to the top of the
crucible. We were never a military
nation, you know. The biggest of our
mistakes, I think, was In our shipbuild-
ing program, but we were never a ship-
building nation, either. However, this
dross Is all being cleared away.
Fully 00 per cent of the winning of
this war depends upon us here at home.
We have three great duties upon us
now os we never hnd them upon us
before—those of us who can grow food
products must grow more than ever;
we must all aid In the saving of foods,
and especially wheat, meats, and
sugar; and all of us who can, though
It may necessitate some sacrifice, must
buy these new Liberty bonds. Proper-
ly carried through, these three great
duties will prove the overbalancing
power In the winning of the war, be-
yond a doubt. The growing of great
crops and the conservation of food,
snd the buying of Liberty bonds, quick-
ly mean enough food for our soldiers
and our allies, and enough ships to
carry It. If we fall In this the die of
destiny Is quite likely to fall with Its
*kull-and-crosshoncs upward for ua; If
we do not fall, then Democracy and
Liberty will come out of the crucible
covered with glory. The result Is

WHO FIGHTS AT HOME? SAY I!
(By ROLAND G. USHER, of the Vig-
We cannot fight u war and still do
business as nsual. This means you
and not other people. You might as
well come to It first as last. The war
Is unusual and we shall have to have
unusual business to deal with It.
The gist of It Is this: The nation
has Just so many hands and just so
much energy—Just so much row mate-
rial nnd labor. There are only 24
hours In the day and 305 days In the
year. We can make only so many
things In a given time with a given
supply of time and material. If we
make some things we cannot make
others. If we put sugar Info candy to
stuff Idle women we cannot have Jnm
to feed the soldiers. If we make au-
tos for pleasure only, we cannot nse
that material, labor and energy for
tanks and airplanes. If we burn the
gasoline on Sundays, the boys In
France cannot use it In battle.
The whole truth Is that we must
atop business ns usual. And—this Is
where you come In—you must stop
spending ns usual. Do It now. Put
your money Into gunpowder nnd not
face powder; into tanks and not limou-
sines ; Into food for the trenches In-
stead of spending It In hotels nnd res-
taurants. Rut you cannot buy directly
for the army. The government must
do It. (live the government the money

“Making a Living” Idea Has De-
veloped Into a “Money
Making Fact. ’
A few years ago—and not ao many
at that—most farmers were satisfied
If they saw ahead of them the oppor-
tunity to make a fair living, a reason-
able competence In their falling years,
aud an assurance of an existence for
their families. They worked hard,
and tilled their acres with this end in
view. Honest struggle, earnest ef-
fort and a true conception of upright
manhood, together with the Increas-
ing knowledge that ujmui the fruits of
their endeavor rested the structure of
the world, whose people had to he fed
and maintained. Economy In method.
Improved conditions of working, have
added to the farmer’s possibilities, and
today Instead of being a plodder for
an existence, which his early training
had bred Into him, he has become the
bulwark of the nation, and, as such,
has l»eoom»> elevated to a position
where his word and his work are rec-
ognised as the factors It was always
intended they should be. He Is now
the man of business—of big business.
He has forced an appreciation of hla
work, and the true value has been
placed upon It. The big men of the
country today are the farmers, who,
with business acumen and forensic
forethought are able to tell you—from
their books—whnt It costs to produce
a bushel of wheat or a pound of wool.
All of which Is Intended to prove
thut farming is a business, us much
as banking or selling a suit of clothes.
It la an Industrial business, with more
certain profits than accompany any
other line of trade. It la a manufac-
turing enterprise, devoid of any of the
dangers that the frills of fashion's
follies and desires force upon ordinary
pursuits. Food Is something that all
must have and the farmer produces It.
The cheaper It can be produced the 'ess
will be the cost to the consumer. And
this Is one of the chief thoughts of the
farmer. Within the memory of the
ten-year-old boy there have been Im-
provements in machinery, changes In
methods, scientific discoveries of chem-
icals as adapted to agriculture, all of
which has lessened cost of production
und made possible the cultivation of
Increased acres. In some parts these
things huve brought about more Inten-
sified agriculture, growing heavier
crops on less acres. Improved machin-
ery and demand for greater production
have led another class In search of |
larger areas, where their ability may
cope with the growing of n greater
number of bushels. That Is one of the
reasons why Western Canada lands
have recently come Into such demand.
These, at from twenty to thirty dol-
lars an acre, and producing the pro-
digious crops that are claimed for
them, have attracted thousands of ,
American settlers, while other thou-
sands have gone out Into the lands In
the Western states. Blit, ns to the Can-
adn lattds, there Is this to say of them,
today they are cheap, nnd If they will
yield sufficient In one year to pay the
cost of the entire purchase, why should
not there be a demand. The country
Is well settled, nnd settlement Is In-
creasing. As evidence of the growth
of the three Western Provinces Into
whose territories the Canadian Govern- |
ment Invites settlers, recent reports
show the following Increases from 1013
to 1017 inclusive:
Value of Field Crops
Manitoba ...$ 04,557,000 *137.470.550
Saskatchewan 120.37fi.UUi> 34it.4AM.2UJ
Alberta .... 40.712.000 17O.0O5.NUO
Total .....$240,045.1 *)<) $083,024,550
Tlie total value of field crops for
1917 was $003.1C4.55U, produced on leas
than 5U.000.0U) acres of laud.
Further evidence of prosperity and
progress Is found In the Government
estimate of the value of farm lands,
and Increase In value since 1008:
Saskatchewan ........20.40 23.07
It will be observed that the average
price of land has not kept pace with
their producing value. It Is therefore
Itoluted out that the opiiortuiiitles for
the purchase of high-class lund Is still
within the reach of those with lim-
A good Ides of advancement In a
country’s progress may be obtained by
n knowledge of what has been done In
the production of cattle, and when
these figures are studied In connection
with Western Canada, a country whose
fame having been heralded as a grain-
growing country, giving the Idea that
that was what It was mostly adapted
to, It will be realised that there Is
there a vast storehouse of wealth
awaiting those who choose to take ad-
vantage of It. In the three provinces
In 1012 there were—horses, milch cows,
other cattle, sheep und swine, fbur mil-
lion head, while In 1917 the number
was seven million.
In 1901 the entire population was
410.512; In 1918 1,008,220.
One marvels at the rapid progress
of the United States during the nine-
teenth century. But America's oppor-
tunities for growth at the beginning of
that century were nothing compared
to the opportunities which are Can-
ada's at the present time.
The fact that Canada has as Its next
door neighbor a nation of over 100,000,-
000—the richest nation in the world—
is bound to have a stimulating effect
on Its progress. Already one sees
signs of it on every band.
Canada not ouly has the largest area
of unoccupied, but fertile, land of any
country, but this land la already made
available by a network of railways.
Cost of production of grain is lower
than elsewhere, while the prices are
on a basis 'of those of the United
