Canada Offers 160 Acres
Free to Farm Hands '
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
LAND FREE AS A HOMESTEAD
and allow the time of the farm laborer, who has filed on the land, to
apply as residence duties, the same as if he actually had lived on it
Another special concession is the reduction of one year in the time
to complete 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 for farm help is in no way connected with enlistment
for military service but solely to increase agricultural output A won
derful opportunity to secure a farm and draw good wages at the same
time. Canadian Government will pay all tare ovei one cent per
mile from Spokane to Canadian destination. Information as'to low
railway rates may be had on application to

Its words will seem to jou un

lies a hastily discarded net, still damp
and dark from the water, and close by
lies the heap of splendid fish, fresh,
wet, gleaming and slltery In the sun.
The coals of fire glow rudflj- In a

now and again, to sit nt the tables of

fame and women of intellect anil

If jou have never realized the mighty

We have asked who were there? Let
us take a final moment to ask what
else was there? There, In that hour.
all the mighty realities uf the two
worlds were gathered; this world and
the next, the world thnt the disciples
had known so long and the world of
which they were catching faint but
dazzling, astounding glimpses as thej
gazed on him; the world thnt he had
been born In, Hied In, worked In. died
In and the world that he was lliing
In nt the time thnt he ate nnd talked
before their ej es !
The realities of this world were
there. Iaibor was then thej of the
toil-worn hands, calloused by the wet
net cords, they of the many a night
of fruitless toll, the; know what the
weariness and uncertainty of labor Is
as few others know. Hunger was there,
the meal that his hue pn pared to
iruet their famished bodies, doubly
wont with abstinence nnd disappoint
ment. Death was there, the end of nil
earth or why the meal to keep the
liody going, the labor for one's loved
ones, nnd why the amazement nt seeing
.one oier whom the omnipotence of
death had no power?
And the realities of the world be
yond were there. Life wns there
such life as neier a soul had dreamed
of since Adam cowered lenealh his sen
tence of mortality. The body was
there; nnd now we know why It Is
called the "Apostle's Creed." thnt sajs
"I lielleve in the resurrection of the
body!" What other faith, what other
verdict, what other creed could they
haie that saw the nail marks In the
hands that sened them? Love was
there Incarnate In him, who, though
already In the life beyond so Ioied
them that he could reward their work-a-day
toll and could prepare or them
