Each fall an influx of springer or
fresh cows enters dairying sections
that seek more milch animals. Every
effort should be exercised to expedite
the railroad movement of the dairy
cows during their time in transit and
to provide all possible comfort for The
animals-en route, advise the dairy €&-
of agriculture. Such care and atten
tion will rednce mortality and, will in
crease the production of the Individual

Valuable purebred cows should be
moved as rapidly as possible by express
service or by freight under the special
system of loading, from origin to desti
nation. Although the expense of ex
pressage is four to five"times as great
as that of handling the animate by
freight, the saving in animal comfort,
shorter time in transit, and better con
veniences for feeding and watering the
animals, make the added expenditure,
advisable. As far as possible the an
imals should be shipped one or two
months before they are due to fresh
en, as repeatedly fresh cows have been
mined so far as the subsequent lacta
tion period has been concerned as a re
sult of being shipped shortly after
freshening or as to calve in transit.
Milch cows of grade breeding usual
ly are shipped by freight. The expe
rienced stockman selects only dry cows
and farspringers for long shipments.
Heifers _which are not due to freshen
until three or four weeks after arrival
at destination make good "buys," as
they are of a size and condition which
permits-of loading the car to capacity.
Furthermore, immature animals are
less susceptible to injury In transit
and to damage as a result of a marked
change of environment. If possible,
only animals without horns should be
shipped and in case any horned ani
mals have to be moved, they should be
tied securely or penned apart in one
end of the car to preclude the possi
bility of their injuring other animals
during the journey.
Similarly, where bulls are shipped In
mixed loads, these sires should be con
fined apart from the other cattle. Oth
er conditions being equal, it is advisa
ble to load about fourteen mature cows
in a 38 or 40-foot car. A practical ar
rangement is to tie four cows in each
end of the car facing the end walls, and
then rough partitions can be installed
so that two other rows of three cows
each face a center alleyway between
the car doors where the attendant can
stay and extra feed and water be car
ried. This arrangement is more com
fortable for the cows as they ride, and

As far as possible, the stock should
be shipped during cold weather, advise
the authorities of the United States de
partment of -agriculture, as cows han
dled during hot weather are liable to
shirk appreciably in milk flow during
the successive lactation period. Spe
cial precaution must be exercised in
shipping cows during cold weather, to
avoid exposure which will favor the
contraction of pneumonia, usually a fa
tal disease among mature cow stuff.
At best it takes an animal about a
year to become thoroughly acclimated
to a warmer or colder climate than that
to which It has been accustomed, and
on this acount, the movement should
take place at a time of year when the
temperature of the two points is as
nearly equable as possible.

The war has greatly increased the
demand for dairy products and it is
also important that they be produced
economically. In ordei that the quan
tity of dairy products may be large
and Hie production economical, more
and better cows are needed. The rais
ing of all the best heifer calves will
provide cows enough to permit tho
culling out of all low producers.

The war la over, peace will soon be
signed, the fighting nations have
sheathed their swords, and the day of
reconstruction has come.
What of it?
Hundreds of thousands of men,
taken from the fields of husbandry,
,from the ranks of labor, from the four
walls of the counting bouse, and the
confines of the workshop, taken from
them to do their part, their large part,
in the prevention of the spoliation of
the world, and In the meantime re
moved from the gear Of common every
day life, will be returning, only to find
In many cases old positions filled, the
I machinery, with which they were for
merly attached dislocated.
Are they to become aimless wander
ers, with the ultimate possibility of
augmenting an army of menacing
loafers? If they do it is because their
ability to assist In laying .new founda
tions, in building up much-required
structures, is underestimated. Men
who fought as they fought, who Risked
and faced dangers as they did, are not
of the caliber likely to flinch when It
comes to the restoration of what the
enemy partially destroyed, when It
comes to the reconstruction of the"
world, the Ideals of which they had in
view when they took part in the great
struggle whose divine purpose was to
bring about this reconstruction.
Inured to toll, thoughtless of fatigue,
trained in initiative and hardened by
their outdoor existence, they will re
turn better and stronger men, boys will
have matured and young men will have
They will decide for themselves
lines of action and thought, and what
their future should and will be. On
the field of battle they developed
alertness and wisdom, and they will
return with both shedding from every
Action was their watchword, and it
wHl stand them In good stead now that
the din of the battle no longer rings
in their ears, or the zero hour signals
them to the fray, and it will continue
during their entire existence.
But If they return to find their old
avocations gone, their places filled,
the institutions with which they were
connected no' longer existing, new
walks of life and em? loyment must be
opened to them: It may be that the
counting house, tie factory, the
workshop will have lost their attrac
tion. The returned soldier will look
elsewhere for employment within his
reach there Is always the "Forward
to-the-Land" necessity.^ In this lies
the remedy that will not only take care
of a multitude of those who may not
be able -to return to their former occu
pations, whose, desjres are not to do so,
whose health prohibit? them from in
.door life or whose outdbor habits from
the past one, two, three or four years
have given them such a taste and de
sire for It that confinement would be
unbearable. Farm life will thus ap
peal to them, and the indications are
that It wjll be taken advantage of by
thousands. It means much to them as
well as to the continent of America
that provides the-opportunity to the
world at large, and to the stricken and
famished nations of Europe, who, not
only today, but for years to come, will
require the sustenance that can only
largely be supplied by the United
States and Canada. By following the
pursuit of agriculture the returned soK
dler will continue the cause he so
greatly advanced when fighting on tbe
field, of battle. Both countries have
undeveloped areas yet open to settle
There is little need here to direct
attention to the wealth that has come
to the farmers of Canada within tlie
past few years. It Is not only in grain
growing that unqualified and almost
unequaled success has followed honest
effort, but the raising of horse*, cattle,
sheep and bogs has been a large source
of profit. These are facts that are
well known to the many friends and
acquaintances of the thousands of
farmers-from the United States who
have acquired wealth on the prairies
of Western Canada. Farms of from
one hundred and sixty to six hundred
and forty acres of the richest soil may
be secured on reasonable terms, and
with an excellent climate, with a
school system equal to any in the
world, and desirable social conditions,
little else could be asked.
Canadian statesmen are today busily
engaged planning for the future of the
returned soldier with a view to making
lilm independent of state help after the
immediate necessary assistance has
been granted, the main idea being to
show In the fullest degree the coun
try's appreciation of the services lie
has rendered.
But now that the war is ended and
the fact apparent that of all avoca
tions the most profitable and independ
ent Is that of the farmer, there will be
a strong desire to secure farm lands
for cultivation. Canada offers the op
portunity to those seeking, not as spec
ulation but as production. The deep
est Interest is taken by Federal and
Provincial authorities to further the
welfare of the fanner and secure a
maximum return for his efforts. Large
sums of money are spent in educa
tional qnd experimental work. En
gaged on experimental and demon
stration farms, and In the agricultural
colleges, are men of the highest tech
nical knowledge and practical expe
rience, some being professors of in
ternational reputation. The results
of experiments and tests are free and
available to all. Educational oppor
tunities for farmers are the "concern
of the government and appreciation
is shown by the number of farmers
who attend the free courses.
Agriculture. In Canada has reached
a high standard, notwithstanding
which lands are low in price.
Thus upon the United States and
Canada for many years will rest the
great burden of feeding the world.
With free Interchange of travel, diffi
culties of crossing and recrossing re
moved, Canada may look for a speedy
resumption of the large influx of set
tlers from the United States which
prevailed previous to the war. Dar
ing the war period there was a dread
of something, no one seemed to know
what If the American went to Can
ada he might be conscripted, put in
prison, or in his attempt to crpss
the border he would meet with Innu
merable difficulties, most of which,
of course, was untrue. These un
truths were circulated for a purpose
by an element, which, It was discov
ered, had an Interest in fomenting
and creating trouble and distrust be
tween two peoples whose language
and aims in life should be anything
but of an unfriendly character. The
draft law of the United States, adopt
ed for the carrying out of the high
purposes had in view by -the United
States, kept many from going to Can
ada during the period of the war. The
citizen army of the United States
was quickly mobilized, and contained
a large percentage of the young men
from the farms. In this way many
were prevented from going to Can
That is all over now. There are

Grocer's Remedy Aptly Compared
With Many So-Called "Cures"
for the Influenza.
Discussing the influenza epidemic
and the many so-called Influenza
cures, Dr. Horace Whitney Williams
said in a lecture at the University of
"Isolation, warmth and perfect care
are the only treatment. The so-called
cures remind me of a story about a
grocer. To this grocer a patron
brought back a pound of butter.
'I want to complain about this but
ter. It's awful,' the patron said.
"The grocer sniffed It, 'Smells sweet
enough to me.Tie observed.
'But It'? full of hair,' said the pa*'
tron, 'I counted eight or nine hairs in
it. Yes, sir, this butter's full of hair,
and I want to knew what you're going
to do about it.'
'Why, make it right, of course,*
said the grocer genially, and he
reached up and took a tiny packet
from the slrelf. 'Here. Here's a
packet of hairpins. You can pin it
back with 'em as you go along.'"

I met a weary man in the train this

"No, sir," said he. "No, sir, but I
had a dream last night and I was just
living it over again."
"Tell me," said I.
"I dreamed," he breathed, "that the

"What?" I asked. "Don't you like
"My wife does," said he, and sighed.
