It is not our ideal that we should ask for cash to help build a true home. We had much rather not call upon the outside world for financial aid, and the time is coming when we shall live entirely off our own resources. But, as the eariy colonists of America wiere forced to buy from the mother \country until they became strong enough to support themselves, so we must depend upon the old system that encircles us for that which we are not yet strong enough to produce. We need cash to pay for a larger tract of land. We need more machin ery, fertilizer, fencing, tools, clothes, flour for the bakery and paper for the printery, all of which we can not produce. "Conditions are the same here as in all other localities. All we have to sell is worth scarcely anything, and all we have to buy is sky-high. Neverthe less, there are something over three hundred eonscientious members here for the purpose of making a comfortable living and the past three years have wit nessed a successful and rapid progress. V*e are but pioneers. You who have endured the hardships of living three to seven years on a government claim in order to own 160 acres of raw land know the sacrifices that must be borne in order to build a home, in a new country. We are pioneering and building a new home in arf old country. We are proving up on a claim, and our time is up when the 20,000 acres are paid for. We shall then be ready to work out our ideal in earnest and prove to the world that a group of honest, constructive people can live the Golden Rule. The sooner the land is paid for, the sooner we can have machinery to convert our own produce into finished products; the sooner we can grow two to three hundred bushels of sweet potatoes per acre, the sooner shall we be ready to build a true home.

FAREWELL, LITTLE OLD APPEAL TO REASON By Alex Van Gundy Farewell, Little Old Appeal! You are traveling the road your father trod and have passed the Great Divide. But we shall never forget you and the great cause ypu fought for lip to the time that the Jews got control of you and murdered you. We shall live in the hope that some great champion of thl cause you foyght for to free the slaves will rise up in the near future to take up the battle where you had to surrender it; that the new shampion will carry on to victory yet before it is too late. Farewell, old friend, fare well !

The company is now charging extortionate rates, the council affirms. MORE TERRORS OF THE POISON PLANE Militarists Preparing New Atrocities Since 1916, when the first cloud of poison gas drifted over the British line, the developments of this arm of warfare have been prodigious. The old bromine gas, heavier than air, eas ily isolated in pockets, and fairly eas ily protected against by the improved gasmasks in use during the last year of the war, has now been discarded by the war chemists. Other and more virulent weapon's are now available to the General Staffs of Europe. "The war chemistry of to-day," said a French scientist à few days ago, "bears the same relation to the war chemistry of 1914 as the ma chine-gun dees to the old' ftfntlock. If I were in the shoes of the French Minister of War, I should tremble." Among these is a terrible develop ment of Yperite, or mustard-gas, which in the form of a fine rain of infinitely pulverized corrosive liquid may be dropped in bombs from aeroplanes or fired in/ shells fronai guns, and which is guaranteed to destroy every living thing within an area of several square miles. Another preparation is a cloud of poisonous arsenical dust, that will choke and destroy the lungs. Other gas-weapons still, in which experiments are constantly being carried out, con tain the baccilli of mortal diseases, that may destroy whole populations. The' knowledge of these facts is be ing sedulously spread in France with the object of beginning a panic. The enormous industrial and chemical equipment of Germany, which almost won for her the last war, is naturally the enemy towards which the war-ner 'vous eyes of the French are being turned. The demand for a State-endowed chemical service, to be employed in the study of chemical weapons of war fare, has already many supporters in France, and the campaign will proba bly succeed. Behind this campaign, it should be remarked, is the French General Staff. The very danger of the horrible new warfare of the future is thus being ex ploited by the militarists to force the State to prepare new horrors for the war to come.
