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. This special concession is the reduction of one year in the time to complete duties. Two years' residence 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 fare over one cent pei mile from St. Paul or Duluth to Canadian destination.

Canadian Govemmtnt A Kent HIS VOICE FROZEN TO POST At least This Is Deduction of Wyo ming Weather Observer From a Very Peculiar Phenomenon. Scoffers huvo arisen from time to time to sny thnt United States olllclal weather reports are a Joke In so far as they deal with tho future; but their descriptions of the present anil past arc admittedly serious and accurate. Therefore one must not read In too jovial a frame of mind the report of David Moore, observer at Castle Hock, Wyo., where they have been hnving some very cold weather. Mr. Moore cites in his report that one night two men stopped at his cabin, and the next morning he tried in vain to call one of them, who was at the barn, to come to breakfast. But the man did not come. So the two sat down to break fast without him. In about ten min utes the man in the barn strolled into the house. "Why didn't you call me when break fast was ready?" he asked. "1 did," was the answer. That was during the cold snap. A thaw hit Castle Rock a few days ago, Moore says, and while ho was stand ing In the back door sunning himself, he was startled by a weird medley of counds. By listening closely he could hear tho words: "Come on to breakfast 1" There was no one In sight. And then he realized why the man had not heard him. The voice, bis own voice, had frozen to a post and was thawing out. Bos ton Transcript. Made Famous by Poem. A half century ago April 3, ISO" a sixteen-year-old girl, named Rose Hartwlck, put the finishing touches to a new poem. The poem was duly published, under the title of "Curfew Shall Not King Tonight."

It was one of tho greatest hits of the century In popular poetry. Walked Off With It. "This dog took first prize at the cat show." "How's that?" "Well, he took the cat."

Kitty left her nightdress on nil day to fool tho police, for she reckoned they wouldn't take a lady through tho streets In her nightdress. Then they heard a purring sound, which grew hauler, then seemed to stop Just outside their door. They tottered out and saw a large, sleek automobile. "I've come to take you for a ride," a police sergeant announced. "We're going to Kings County hosptal." Kitty had never been In nu automobile be fore, and as she looked at the big car a belated speed germ Infected her soul. "Say," she demanded, "how fust can we get to thnt place?" New York Tribune.

EAT MORE FRUIT. The days are past when the orange was u luxury. It Is an everyday fruit, found in the market from one year's end to tho next. There nro seasons when the fruit Is more plentiful, and then Is the time to prepare for the season of higher prices. It Is hardly necessary to mention that the orange Is a liver stimulant and a gen tle laxative, for Its virtues are too well known. The mineral matter which It contains Is not so well under stood, and this Is the chief or one of the chief Important elements which make the fruit highly valuable. Oran ges contain phosphates, whldi are a nerve food and are most useful In cases of Insomnia. As a refreshing tonic, to be entirely successful It should be eaten at least a half hour before breakfast. The Juice strained may be given to very young children, not too near the milk feeding. The orange may be served in such a variety of at tractive ways. Sliced oranges make u most attractive dish. Peel the orango and remove all tho white skin. Slice very thin, removing any seeds If pres ent ; arrange the slices overlapping on u small glass platter or oblong plate, sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar and garnish with candied cherries. As n salad, a most delicious combina tion Is oranges, pineapple, a few dates, and quartered inarshmallows served with any dressing made thick with whipped cream. When oranges nro used as salad for fish or duck, the dressing should he a French one, using lemon Juice for the acid. For serving an Invalid, tho orange should be peeled and all the skin from ench section removed; then ar range around a mound of sugar and servo. An orange prepared flower fash Ion Is a most dainty way to serve the fruit to an Invalid. Cut down the skin in eighths to within an Inch from the blossom end, then strip down In points and fold or turn them In. The orange may then be pulled apart In sections. Another method Is to peel the orange, leaving an Inch or half Inch band around the fruit, equator fashion. Then spread open and the sections are easily removed.

A chilling dish Is generally used for Informal occasions, and nothing Is more conducive to tho general pleasure than something for several to do to assist In the pre paration of the meal. For Sunday night sup pers where there Is a guest or two the enjoy ment will he double If they take part In getting things ready This Is also a time to let the mnn of the house use his Ingenuity as well as the children, everybody loves to watch a meal In preparation especially If all tho appointments are pleasing. For the server nt the chafing dish table the chair should be high, so that all the stirring and seasoning may be done with ease. The chafing dish should set upon a metal tray, the lamp carefully tilled, all utensils needed near at hand. Pure alcohol should be used In the lamp, us an Inferior one gums and spoils the lump. One of the essentlnls In all work, especially In table preparation, Is noiseless work. so the wooden spoons are better to use than metal ones. The carved sll ver affairs may he wm! for serving. With the spoons as utensils for preparations should be small rcccpta cles of salt, pepper, celery salt and paprika. If mile Is used it should lie finely minced and placed In a sma'l. attractive dish. UI Ingredients slmiHd ho prepared beforehand, and placed ui pretty receptacles vlthln easy reach. A wheel tray Is a most convenient hk slstant, saving many steps, the soiled dishes may he quickly gathered and re moved nnd all the supplies kept on It If wished. Dainty finger rolls or sand wlches are the usual accompaniment to any dishes served from the chafing dish, these are prepared beforehaid. A salad Is another well-llked dish. This may be either sweet or more sub stantial, depending upon tho other dishes served. The Right Medicine in Many Cases Does Better than the Surgeon's Knife. Tribute to Lydia E.
