Homes for the Belgians.
A plan to settle communities
of Belgian refugees in the United
States has been presented to the
American governmentby Dugald
McFadyen and the two houses of
Congress will be urged to so mod
ify the immigration laws as to
permit carrying out of the plan.
"It must be evident to people
of America that at present Bel
gian relief is only postponing
from day to day the pressure of
starvation," declared McFadyen.
"There are in the Southern
States, in the West, and in Can
ada considerable tracts of land
which might be used for Belgian
settlements. The situation is
one without precident in history.
There is no parallel showing
what should be done with a pop
ulation of 1, 500,000 suddenly di
vorced from its home, its work
and its means of livelihood."

Rat Went Through War.
Perhaps the only rat on record
that ever went through a mili
tary campaign, ensconced snug
ly in its soldier owner's pocket,
at the battle of Mons, the Marne
and the Aisne, is now in London
in the possession of Sergt. John
son, of the Royal Field artillery.
Johnson was wounded at Sois
sons and is on a few day's leave.
"Billy," as Johnson calls his
rat, though the latter is a lady,
is pure white, and was given, to
the English soJdier by a French
girl at the beginning of the war.
During the battle of Mons, the
rat sat on her master's right
boot. Twice she wandered away
but came back all right and was
in the fighting all the way from
Mons to Melum, southeast of
Paris, and back to the Marne
and the Aisne. Billy was in
Sergt. Johnson's pocket all the
time and was never hurt. When
the soldier landed at Southamp
ton, after he had been wounded
by shrapnel, a lady who saw the
white rat, presented to Johnson
a black terrier pup named Toby
to keep Billy company. The rat
and pup are now close friends.

What a Boy Did.
If you are a boy and thinking
of taking up the study of scien
tific farming, even if you have
to borrow the money to put you
through an agricultural college,
just consider what one boy did.
He was only 19, a farm boy
just out of the agricultural col
lege. He was $250 in debt for
his education, and he needed
money. But instead of taking a
good job at certain wages he
took a farm yes, with his two
brothers, he took two farms. !He
proceeded to mix brains and en
ergy with the land. The first
year the profits over and above
interest, rent and fair wages to
themselves was $1,000. Last
year they made ten per cent., on
$17,000 besides all the other
charges mentioned.
Then the boys began to plant
seed corn of a superior quality
"pedigreed corn" they called it.
The neighbors wanted all they
could buy at $2.50 a bushel.
Now over in the next county
they have hired Alfred Carlsted
to teach the farmers of the coun
ty how to grow corn. They are
paying him $1,500 a year for his
work and are glad to. He feels
that he is doing missionary work
for Minnesota as well as earning
$1,500 a year.
