The entry of the Fnlted States Into
the war has strengthened the bonds
between that country und Canada. We
are now working together for Ihe
same ends. Those who are not fighting
are promoting n greater production of
foodstuffs. In this connection Western
Canada offers a wonderful opportu-
nity. Not only can larger quantities
of staple foodstuffs be produced, but
the coat of production la lower and the
remuneration greater than where Innd
Is more expensive. Notwithstanding
Ihe fact thnt Ihe price of farm prod-
ucts has doubled during the past three
years, there are millions of acres of
nrable Innd In Western Canada which
can still he bought at a low price.

acreage prepared for seeding to wheat

will probably surpass the record area

the largest crop ever known In the
West was harvested. The yenr 1018
should also see n further Increase In
live stock nctlvlty.
Farmers have b«*en investing consid-
erable sums In cattle; the high prices
secured for wool and mutton have
opened the eyes of Western farmers to
the possibilities of sheep, and such was
the demand for breeding animals last
fall that It vvna Impossible to meet It
adequately; the eaiapaign for greater
