Dffering 160 Acres to Farm
Canada today, with the great de-
mand that is made upon it for food-
stuffs, finds itself almost in the throes |
of a labor famine. A novel means of
solving the problem has been evolved
by the Canadian Government at Ottawa
“on Wednesday last, when it was de-
cided to practically bonus every farm-
hand going to Canada, by giving him
160 acres free as a homestead, and to
allow the time he would be working out
for, the good wages offered, to count as
wesidence duties on the homestead.
Western Canada has been a big pro- |
<ucer of grain and it is estimated that
there is a shortage of over thirty thou-
sand men, necessary to produce an av-
erage crop in 1917. This shortage has
been caused by so many young men
having left the farms to go to war, and
4t is essential to make an unprecedent-
ed offer of this kind, to fill their places
on the land at once.
It has been required in the past to
do three years’ duties on homesteads
to get title, but an additional induce-
ment has been offered by practically
reducing this term to two years. AS
explained by an official of the Canadi-
an Government, Canada’s need for
farm laborers is intense, and excep-
tional inducements are being offered
to get the needed farm workers at
once. A farmhand will make his’ en-
try for one of the 160-acre farms, sat-
isfy the Government that he is work. |

ply as residence on the land filed for,

living on it—Advertisement.

One of the New Spring Suits
Une of the new spring suits, with
inany novel features in its construc-
tion to make it interesting, is shown
in the accompanying picture. It is
trim looking and graceful, to start
with, and these commendable charac-
cleverest sort of management in the
cutting. It seems for the past three
years that tailors have studied the de-
sired silhouette, then bent their ener-
gies on accomplishing it, each season,
by original methods of cutting.
In the coat pictured the side bodies
are cut away under the arms in a
curve that is extended into the belt
across the front. A panel at the mid-
dle of the back. terminates a little
above the waistline and the short skirt
of the coat is gathered under it. At
the front the waistline is a trifle lower
under it at each side. Four wide tucks

are laid in the lower part of each side
body. At the head of each of these
tucks, soutache braid, in white, is
stitched in a double row, with beauti-
ful exactness. It appears on the back
panel, where two large bone buttons,
| one at each side, form an additional
| decorative feature.
The coat has plain coat sleeves with
| turned back cuffs and a large collar
of white satin trimmed with braid. It
fastens with bone buttons at the front.
In the skirt the side panels in the
| coat are repeated and they are finish-
| ed with tucks headed with braid in
| the same manner. There are wide in-
| verted plaits. at the back and front
| and the skirt is just long enough to
fall an inch below the boot tops.
Women have not taken kindly to the
lengthened skirt, especiplly in suits,
and the skirt pictured er be accept-
ed as quite long enough. !
Spring Coat for General Wear
Last season those who make it their
Yusiness to provide coats for woman-
kind centered their attention on nov-
elty in the manner of cutting and drap-
ing the backs of these garments. In
the new spring models their energies
and collars. The latter are ample in
size and the former as varied and novel
in design as the untrammeled fancy of
| designers can make them.
Many of the new coats are in plain
colors and a great many of them are
plaited. Most of them have a narrow
belt. but often it extends only part way
about the figure, and sometimes merely
across the back or front. But how-
ever conservative the new coats may
be in other things, they go to all sorts
of lengths and breadths and turns in

The sleeves are shaped into a deep,
flaring cuff, headed with a narrow band

| which no right-minded designer would
| think of omitting from a top-notch
