When McKenzle King took office he declared himself against conscription and has held steadfastly to that committal. Mr. Pippert states that the wheat crop in Canada is spotted, due to the various changes In weather conditions, and that the weather there now Is the same as here; wet and cold. Threshing has been greatly retarded there. Wheat Is the pricipal crop. In the larger towns and cities business In general is normal but in the wide areas life Is very prosaic, farming and stock raising occupying the time and efforts of the citizens. Mr. Pippert Is one of the pioneers of western Saskatchewan. He first went there and proved up a claim In 1903, becoming a citizen of Canada in order to prove his land rights. He lived jon his wheat ranch until 1925. When he first went to hia place the nearest town was 90 miles distant. There were no railroads then, but now his land is situated in a pocket surrounded by three or four large railroads and his nearest town is but nine and one-half miles distant. Quebec, Canada, founded in 1608 is the only walled city of any size on the North American continent. Finral r item Ml rMHb AT*, PHON1 MAIM • Honor Corp. Meiners And Pvf.
