What Britain Has Done to Save the
Liberties of Europe
What saved tlie liberties of Kurope at this juncture���Mr, Gerard
makes no secret of il���was tlie sudden entry of England into the war.
For three years the "obstinate nation" (the kaiser's words to Mr. Gerard) 'lias kept up the war. For
three years its fleet has cleared the
seas ot German shipping. During
three years it hart built lip vast -inn-
ics, financed half ol Europe, and instead of sending half a dozen divisions to assist France, has put into
the field some millions of trained
soldiers. British troops fought with
lhe Japanese at Kaio t'hau. Hriiish
troops pressed from the Persian
Gulf into Bagdad, driving tlie Turks
before lliciu. Brilish troops filing

German  Methods Must Be  Used  to
Save Surplus of Bumper Crop
Uncle Sam has heen forced to cm-
ploy pro-German methods to save
America's cabbage crop. The emergency bureau of ihe department of
agriculture reported that tremendous
rains have given us a whopper cabbage crop and thai unless thousands
of heads uf il are at once turned into
sauerkraut it will be lost.
Despite that fact that we're al war
with Germany, sauerkraut is so popular in this country that the price
has taken ;, big jump. It is an easy
and exceedingly profitable way to

Allies are fighting depends on the.
Hriiish fleet, and therefore it must
not lie made the instrument of any
Ullinstructcd war philosophy. We
can risk many things, as wc are risk-
injr them under the pressure of this
unexampled emergency, but the nation cannot permit any risks to he

A Wealthy Private
The richest "ranker" (private sol-
dier) of the war is Tropper Marshall
field, grandson of the founder of the
vast Field fortunes, who recently enlisted in the 1st Illinois Cavalry.
On account of the peculiar conditions of his grandfather's will, the
fortune has to accumulate until the
beneficiaries reach the age of twcnly-
five when each takes a proportionate,
life interest, It was willed, too, that
llic whole capital should he kept intact for forty years. Thus Marshall
Field will be fifty when he comes into possession of llis inlierilance, and

division held the German army from
Calais. Tlie news ihen was so confused that until I got among people
who preserved every detail I did not

news printed at ihe lime, writes W.
C. Morgan in ihe Hutchison Sun-
li was ,u Ypres. A Canadian division was al ihe fronl, on lhe Huh!

that demons or evil spirils were at
work and they ran. 'Ihey did not
Stop running for ten or twenty
miles, in spile of the hard measures
lakeu by their white allies to stop
their rout.
Then the pas reached a pari of the
Canadians, If they had been veteran
soldiers ihey might have retreated,
bul tltey did nol. 'i'he German forces
broke around them where the Turros
had been, as soon as the gas was
dissolved, but lhe Canadians stood
linn. They faced bolh ways and held
llieir place as artillery- beat upon
(hem with shrapnel anil German infantry charged them with the bayonet. They held that broken line
not for hours, but for two days, and
there were not many left when the
rfclief reserve reached their side.
Bul they had held the road to Calais, and ii" lhcy had not done so the
Germans would have captured that
most important seaport only a few
miles across thc Channel from England.
When the Canadians advanced this
spring and raptured Vimy Ridge they
did what the Germans thought was
impossible. They had planned oul
thr entire battle in advance. At 5:30
the barrage lire was centered on a
certain spot. At 6 o'clock this barrage was lifted . and the infantry
charged. At 6:10 the barrage was
renewed, the guns aimed over their
own men and onto a further objective. Al 6:30, forward the infantry
another hundred yards. The. schedule was made up in advance and
thc final objective was fixed lo be
captured at 2:30. At ten minutes
before that time the advanced infantry telephoned back lo the artillery
that they were, ready and to stop the
cannon, and they reached the German
trenches live minutes ahead of the
time they had fixed.
That does not sound hard, but before they made the lime table the
aviators had photographed or described every trench and tree and
rock, located every German cannon
or machine gun, and the artillery
knew the exact range of every wall
or barbed wire, and how soon their
fire could clear the way.
The infantry knew every object
which would furnish cover to themselves, and just where the enemy
would rise when the artillery stopped
to let the charge proceed.
The battle of Vimy Ridge was one
of the cleanest victori-S of the war,
and it was fought hy the Canadians,
On account of lhe prefect preparation and the interlocking work of artillery and infantry, the losses were
not as great a.s at the Somme, or
as might have been expected.
War is a very complicated game in
these days of science and knowledge.
Artillery is effective at ten or twenty
miles, when lhe only way lhe artillerymen ran lell if they arc hilling
the mark is by telephone from the
observation balloon. Ammunition is
as great a problem as men. Food is
as essential as bullets. Motor drivers are as necessary as riflemen,
Por every man who stands in the
trench or is ready to make a charge
or meet one, there are four men
behind the line making ammunition,
shipping it and hauling it and food,
drawing maps, _ taking care of the
wounded, repairing uniforms and doing the necessary work preliminary
to the actual fighting! hi all of this
work the ability of the engineer, the
organizer, the executive and the inventor is as important as the readiness of the soldier. The immensity
of such an army, wliicli begins at the
munitions plant: in Canada and
reaches lo the trenches in Flanders,
is almost beyond human comprehension.

Submarine Losses
Estimating the Losses by lhc Average  Tonnage  of  Bach
The engineering supplement of the
London Times has thrown a Hood of
lighl upon the losses of the Hriiish
merchant marine   tlirougli   submar-
ini s. The writer has a case to make
ui for increased pressure on con
trucllon and  ii  may be  tnkcli    for
granted lhat he docs uol understate
his  case.
llis figures as lo Ihe tolal hiss ol
lonnage. bj Greal Britain, and as la
what is vastly more Important, tho
rale at which Ureal llrilain is losing
lonnage now, depend absolutely upon the average tonnage of each vessel sunk being 3,770 tons. Mow does
he arrive at this average? lie takes
the number of vessels sunk iii April
and July and divides it into Ihc gross
tonnage lost in ihosc months as stated by Lloyd George. This is too
slight a basis for the establishment
of any such average. Very serious
error might creep iu when the rule
of proportion is used to establish totals ovcr a period of six months on
a year. Just for instance, Lloyd
George's figures of tonnage, arc apparently for calendar months and
the number of vessels is given by,
weeks. So soon as the process of
multiplying an error begins, calculations arc of little value as lo totals
even in the roundest of round figures.
By an odd coincidence on the same
day as these calculations were published; The Telegram referred to
the British present rate of loss as
roughly two million tons a year,
This figure was arrived at by taking
a considerably lower tonnage than
3,7/t'i tons per vessel sunk and ex
chilling vessels under 1,600 tons in
establishing that average and also
excluding them from the average
weekly joss in tonnage thus arrived
at by fifty-two. Quite evidently the
error here was bound to be enormous. In our estimate of thc actual
damage done the exclusion of vessels under 1,6110 tons was reasonable.
The real error lay in the estimated
average tonnage of the other vessels.
A useful check upon the figures of
the Times may be made in this way.
Lloyd George's July loss multiplied
by twelve gives a yearly rate of
3,840,000 tons. An average tonnage
per boat of 3,776 Ions multiplied by
twenty boats per week multiplied by
fifty-two, gives a yearly rate of 3,-
926,040 tons. As io one-half of the
problem some gleam of accuracy
seems to appear.
As to the other half of the problem, how construction is meeting ihe
losses wc know nothing, because a
superior wisdom permits us to know-
nothing. We may rest in illusioiiary
hopes or fall victims to ungrounded
terrors exactly a.s our individual temperaments dispose us. In accurate
knowledge, we are not permitted to
share.���Winnipeg Telegram.
The Elect of the Earth
What One American  Paper   Thinks
of the Canadians
Kipling called Canada "Our Lady
of the Snows," but the story which
corresnoiidcnls tell of her war record prove that when her pride, her
loyalty and her affection are engaged, Canada is the Vesuvius of the
nations. Every American .should
read the recital of the sacrifices and
the heroism of the Canadians, Before the war certain brainless Americans talked of annexing Canada and
of making it share in the benefits of
a republican government. Until we
can lil'l ourselves to the same level as
this high-minded people   the     Uesi
thing that we  could do would be  lo
get ourselves annexed to Canada. We
hope that the letters of our cones

Immediate success.
Like Faraday, Edison \uis a newsboy; but, unlike Faraday, Edison
never knew the pangs of hunger iu
his early youth, They came later,
and lhcy came in thc great big city
of New York,
When about ten years old Edison
constructed Ills first laboratory in
tiie cellar of his home in Port Huron, Mich., and began experimenting
villi a crude chemical outfit. To obtain funds with wliicli lo continue experiments oil a larger scale young
Edison obtained permission to peddle newspapers on the Giand Trunk
Tli? lure of Ihc laboratory kept
Edison's mind on experiments, As
he had plenty of leisure time during
the two daily runs, Edison arranged
for quite au elaborate workshop ill
his quarters, which he equipped with
an extraordinary array of apparatus.
This laboratory on wheels was the
cause of a disaster which probably
had more to do with the shaping of
Edison's career than any other one
thing. One day a violent lurch of
the train knocked a stick of phosphorus from the shelf, which burst
inlo flames. The timely arrival of
the train crew with waicr saved lhe
car from complete destruction, and
the embryo inventor and his beloved
laboratory were put off al the nexl
Edison temporarily discontinued
his research while he took up the
study of telegraphy and after a short
lime became a brilliant operator, llis
fun loving and venturesome spirit
kept him roving from state to stale.
He spent many arduous years in..the
middle west before he reached Boston. His skill as a telegrapher soon
obtained for him a place in lhc. New
England cily, where he began his
long list  of successful inventions.
Edison perfected his early slock
printer and went to New York in
1868 lo sell his invention. He. met
wilh financial reverses anil soon was
without funds and ou the ragged
edge of starvation.
Few changes in fortune are more
sudden or more dramatic in any career llian that wliicli placed an ill-
clad, half-starved youth in charge of
Dr. Laws' manufacturing plant al a
salary of $300 a month. Edison had
undertaken to repair a ticker apparatus lhat distributed stock market
news lo subscribers. Jfe. studied the
indicator thoroughly. lie readily

iCaisci'isin blocks the road to
peace, So long as the Hohcuzollern
holds autocratic swaj in Germany
the war musl go on until the military power of Prussia is overthrown.
This is the emphatic stand laken by
President Wilson in reply lo the
peace proposals of the pope. It is
the conclusion reached by all the
Allies, for whom the president may
be presumed on this occasion to
.peak. I'aisensni or Democracy?
lhis is the ultimatum to the German
people.    Until  they answer il  to  the
satisfaction of the Allies the western
front will continue to be tin vital
scene uf the war. If Germany is lo
win peace llirougli democracy thc
Ilohenifollcrns must go. They uill
trot go Until lhcy arc driven out,
That is the only kind of logic which
they understand. Judgment has been
pronounced by the civilized world.
Genual" autocracy appealed to ihe
sword; hy the sword it musl perish.
Not since the days of Gladstone's
scathing diatribes againsl the unspeakable Turk has a ruling sover-
ign provoked such a stinging and unanswerable indictment as that contained in President Wilson's review
of the conduct of the kaiser and his
advisers in this war.
W'e cannot lake the word of lhe
present rulers of Germany as a
guarantee of anything that is to endure unless explicitly suppori ed bv
such conclusive evidence of the will
and purpose of the German people
themselves as the other peoples of
the world would he justified in accepting���withoul such guarantees,
treaties of settlement, agreements for
disarmament, covenants to sei up arbitration iu lhe place of force, territorial adjustments, recoustitttliotis of
small nations, if made wilh lhe German government, no man, no nation,
could depend on. Wc musl await
some new evidence of lhe purpose!,
of lhe greal .people- of llu central
powers. God grant il may be given
fonn aiu**in a way lo restore the
confidence of all peoples everywhere
in lhe faith of nations and lhe pos-
sibility of a covenanted peace."
This it is that constitutes the unpardonable crime of German rulers
���their failure to keep their pledged
word, and llieir appeal from international law 10 lhe u'utrammclcd barbarism of aiiachy and murder, The
attitude taken up by President Wilson, am! endorsed by the Allies, is
ihe only one ihai can be taken with
safely to ihc world. 'I he German
government which made the war is a
military hegemony, The kaiser and
his bureaucratic advisers are slill
ruling Germany wilh ihe. iron rod of
autocracy, 'lire discontent and un-
icst so prevalent throughout the
country have not relaxed the stern
discipline of lhe German army, The
German front is still unbroken,
Michaelis has succeeded to llollwcg
a.s chancellor, but "the new presbyter
is but old priest writ large." Michaelis, like llollwcg, is the mouthpiece
of an emperor who is slill lhe absolute ruler of Germany. The Hohcnzollern regime and democracy are
in the eyes of ihc Allies wholly irreconcilable. 'I'he objecl of lhc war
being, in the words of the president,
"lo deliver the free peoples of the
world from lhc menace and actual
power of a great military establishment," the course of action is unmistakably clear. We arc witnessing today lhe first stirrings of tin- democratic uprising in Germany. In the
long run lhal impulse will best bc

Wilson, voicing the Allie.., comes

the   establishment   of   international
right and justice. The first and paramount aim of lhe Allies is the complete destruction of the military pot'. -

Peace on any oljjor terms, as Ihe
Brilish premier insists, would be an

Neutrals Must Go Hungry

Shipments From Reaching
The vigorous action of tlie Unite!
States in controlling the shipment of
food supplies to neutrals who have,
been feeding Germany with tieii
own products marks a definite change
in this whole department of the star.
So long as supplies originate in a
neutral country and lhe intermediary
is a neutral, it is quite impossible for
a belligerent to prevent these supplies from finding their way directly
or indirectly to another belligerent
without blockading the neutrals ��i
well  as  the  belligerent power itself.
This was Great Britain's great difficulty in regard to supplies which
originated in the United States. It
presents no difficulty to the United
States so far as supplies grown 01
manufactured within Its own boundaries arc concerned. In addition to
this, nearly everything which is produced in North -and South America
comes into contact with the United

or transportation. The United States

that lie sotigbl to bring together

No. long ago, Sir Robert spoke of
Iiis well known patience and perseverance, The- traits wore never so

forma coalition. Evety obstacle
was placed in his way by Conservatives anil Liberals, but he kept
on and won out. \\'e can but believe lhat his success is a good
thing lor Canada. There are no
doubt many Conservatives who dis
like or mistrust some of lhe liberals now ii' ihe Government, but
we have confi lenee in the Prime
Minister and believe lie would not
have taken them in wit,.out good
cause, W'e believe these gentlemen
will not attempt to use their po
sitious to further their own party
ends. We believe that both elements in the government will unite
and act without partizan ends in
Canada and the United States
probably will be able to provide for
the Allies requirements of cereals
other than wheat, during the next
twelve months. The Allied people
themselves have been economizing
with wheat and flour. As Lord
Northcliffe said in Montreal, "there
is no such thing as white bread in
tbe Old Country, from the King's
table downwards." Other eereals
are being used but they cannot be
used alone for bread, The Allies
must add them to wheat (lour to

An experience with lhis kind of

ties.red that the money should go

turn it oyer to the Canadian Red
Cross, He might, of course, have
had it paid direct to him, or to
some American Patriotic Society,
but be elected that it should go to
the Canadiaa Red Cross, which a
few days ago received a cheque
for the amount.

Get Behind the Wheel
of a Ford and Drive
TRY it just once!  Ask your friend to lot you "pilot" bis -
ear on an open stretch.  You'll like it, and will be surprised how easily the Ford is handled and driven.
If you have never felt the thrill of driving your own car,
there is something good in store for you.    It is vastly
different from just riding���being a passenger.   And especially so if you drive a Ford.
Young boys, girls, women and oven grandfathers���thousands or them���are driving Ford cars and enjoying it. A
Ford stops and starts in traffic with exceptional ease and
smoothness, while on country roads and hills its strength and
power show to advantage.

slung on again, lie found himself
among stubble fields, by a grove in
which the starlings wcrc chattering
like a cascade of hurrying water.
Just beyond the grove lie was aware
ot Mr. Langton's lean, erect figure
coining towards Iiini. He lind time
to-noi,: what "ravages this last trouble had wrought in a face already
thin and careworn, before Mr, Langton recognized him. So absorbed
was he in his* ^vn heavy thoughts
that lie had all but passed when their
eyes met.
A wintry smile mine lo tie elder
man's face, and lie lifted up his hands
with an effort at humorous amazement.
"My dear boy," lie said, "I might
have guessed that you would come.
Hut���1 am so sorry it is of no use.
Margaret will not let you have her
"1 did not aslc that she should." A
slight cloud that had rested on.the
natural brightness of Hilary's face
lifted, "I did not ask for her nil-
dress. I should despise myself ,if I
worried her. J came to see you. We
are, in ,1 sense, in the same boat. I
needed sympathy."
Mr, Langton's hand went oul and
clasped   Hilary's   warmly.
"Thai is good of you dear fellow,"
In' said. "Not thai it is true. God
forbid you should he in tlie same,

Mother was dying, steadily and surely, what could 1 do hut llie thing 1

myself for���lhat I consented, be-
enise she was frightened, poor soul,
to doing it furtively, so to speak.
She look a deal of persuasion before she would consent to save her
life. The thing ought to have been
done differently; but it was her timidity."
"Don't blame yourself, sir, even
remotely. Vou did only what you
should do, what any man had to dc
who would lift his head tip among
his fellow men."
"Neither spoke about the' ordeal
that lay ahead, from which Lady
South was lo bc saved.
"Now you are ronie, are you going
to stay?" .Mr. Langton asked, as Hilary turned with hiin and tlicy met
the se.t wind.
"As long as you stay, sir, if
not a trouble lo you,"
"I go back to London in a
night  from  now.    I  shall  be
glad for you to stay.   Where do you
put up?    At the Splendidc?"
"1 have no use for lhe Splendid*,
however much it may be miscalled,
You are at the Hotel dc la Marine.
'I hey have no room for me under

acquaintance "f M. and Madame Du-

"I need only sleep at the Chateau.
It will do mc v.ill enough. I have

Of my bedroom and clear out a lot
of the rubbish. 1 hope the Dufours
will not  mind."
"They hardly ever go into the

"No one would he surprised to

Langton, as they went down (he
hill. "A good many people would be
surprised that wc had the temerity to
take the. way past it, especially with
the twilight coming as it is coming
now. It is a horrid place. Tt might
well be haunted."
The sallc a manger of the Hotel
de la Marine was a cheerful place to
come into. A bright lire was glowing on the hearth, and the tables
were set for dinner.    Monsieur bust-
1 am
led nut lo meet them, full of cheerful bits of gossip picked up during
the day, 'Two Monsieurs hail goin
to the Splendidc. They should have
ronie lo the Marine, where Ma-
d.mc's cooking aud lhe excellent
company would have made them
perfectly happy, while nt lho Splendidc��� Words failed Monsieur as he
shrugged llis shoulders ami lifted

Diifottr to pick up the lirst of the
two names hc found on the new
guest's luggage���would have plenty
of time to display to Mr. Langton
his chambrc a lit at the Chateau before dinner was ready. Monsieur
then made a discovery. M. Ilnri's
portmanteau had not yd heen carried over to the Chateau, He would
bring it directly, with a supply of
towels and some other things M.
llarl might need. Hilary picked tip
the portmanteau himself, declining
lo trouble Monsieur; received the
towels, a minute cake of soap, and
lil tic lamp from his host's hands,
while the latter protested voluably
that he could not dream of allowing
M. Ilari to carry lhe things, ultimately giving up his opposition with
a remarkable suddenness.
'The two tnt'ii went across to the
Chateau together. The path through
the dense wood was so dark, although the sky was yet light over
the. sea, that tlicy had lo tread warily, antl were grateful lo Monsieur
that he had lit a little swinging lan
tern and given il to Mr. Langton to
carry. It might have been the light
that set the creatures lo stir In the
dense cover of the wood. A bird
fluttered; something scurried, with a
liny shriek; the whole place seemed
full of stealthy rustlings and move

"I always think this scrap of wood
smells like, die jungle," snid Mr.
Langton, as he stumbled over a projecting root of a tree. "1 havc
known this place for some time,
though I have never slept in the
Chateau du Hois. Hut it is full every slimmer of prosaic English people, wilh whom one would think
nothing eeiie could inhabit. Of
course there is the crowd. Would
you not like, to go to the Splendidc
tonight, or to a lodging in the village?   Even 1 find this place nervy."
"I shnll sleep like n top, I assure
you," snid Hilary, "I have never
known what it is to have nerves,
'llic.wood ought to bc cut down. Il
is probably a perfect charnel house
of bones of small birds and beasts."
The door of the Chateau stood
open, 'i'hey went upstairs, passing
onc open door afler another, showing a yawning blackness beyond. A
cheerful liglit came out to meet them
as they approached the room which
Hilary was to occupy. Margot had
been there and had done her work
thoroughly. 'The floor was bare and
new-scrubbed; all the draperies were
gone; the window showed a clear
half square of light where the upper
prtrt looked above the trees; the tire
had  burned  up and  illuminated  tlu
room to Its distant corners.

Great Services Rendered In Time of
National Crisis
That country gentleman have made
mistakes in the pa9t in their attitude
towards their land in true enough,
but during this time of crisis they
have been In all respects great servants of the common good, those
above military age serving all day
long as recruiters, and the others
serving in the ranks when they could
not at once serve as officers. The
yeomen of England, and landlords of
the manors, have ever had in war
the sa'njj! tradition of public service!
and for this reason in his History of
Henry VII., Lord Bacon "speaks with
the utmost enthusiasm of the hereditary power that Henry gained for
lhe state by establishing on the land
"men of some substance, that might
keep hinds and servants, and set the
plough going on, This did wonder;
fully concern lhe mighi and manner-
hood of the kingdom, lo have farms
as it wcrc of a standard, sufficient to
maintain an ably hotly out of penury,
and did in elVeel amortise a great
part of the lands of the kingdom till-
: to the hold nnd occupation of the
yeomanry or middle people, of a condition betweej gentlemen and cottagers or peasants," From this Tudor wisdom  many a county    family
i took its origin, and as Bacon puts it:
"Thus did the king secretly sow Hydra's teeth; whereupon, according io
lhe poet's fiction, should rise up
armed men for the service of the
kingdom."   Saturday Review,

"The discuses of thc campaigning

rare, being replaced in order of frequency by phthiriasis (parasites),
tczetna, and trichophytinous diseases (diseases affecting the hair),
oftentimes marked by varied peculiarities.
"Tuberculides and tuberculosis of

the medical examiners as lhc soldiers presented themselves for active

"Silver Bullet"
Very Effective
How to Strike the Hun    a    Severe
It is not necessary lo travel to
Europe and enter the. trenches iu order lo strike a blow against the enemy of civilization, Some very effective  work/eau  be  done  at  home.
Of course, the most meritorious j
service is that done by the brave i
men who don the khaki and go into
lhe trenches. They risk their lives
and endure separation from all they
hold dear. But tllis does not mean
that lighting with the gun or bayonet is the. only way to make the cn-
my reel backwards and dually collapse.
Money is a weapon of terrific
force in modern war, much more
powerful than it ever was in the
past. Tllis means that Germany is
more vulnerable to tlle hammering of
money, comparatively speaking, than
to the hammering of sleel shells. As
Lloyd George.'said many months ago
the "silver bullet" will finally win
the war and it goes without saying
that the more silver bullets there,
are to be discharged, the sooner the
war will end.

Marvels of the Telephone
Listening to the Atlantic and Pacific
A' remarkable demonstration of the
telephone was recently made for the
benefit of Lord Northcliffe and his
party. A point of historical interest
was the listening by the distinguished visitor lo lhc roar of the Atlantic
and l'acitie. oceans simultaneously, A
telephone was connected to the transcontinental line reaching to San
Francisco where lhe line had for the
occasion been extended to a telephone transmitter on the shore of
the Pacific at the Golden Gate. Another telephone was connected to a
line extending to a transmitter on the
shore of the Atlantic. Thus by placing his ear to one receiver and then
to the other, I.ord Northcliffe was
aide to hear first one ocean and then
the other, nnd by placing a receiver
in cither car he was able to hear
bolii  oceans  simultaneously.
Land for Veterans
In lhe Britisii house of commons
Major Hunt complained that the
hoard of agriculture was not making
proper provision for the land settlement of sailors and soldiers after
the war. Lie emphasized that the
facilities which Australia and Canada are providing would open land lo
the men from the United Kingdom
besides those from  tbe Dominions,
Air. Winfrey, Under-Secretary for
agriculture, said the hoard had already secured practically tho whole
of 8,000 acres which the act of 1915
empowered it to purchase for this
purpose. It might bc necessary to
ask additional powers after the recess, lie was of the opinion that
the question of capita! was not difficult, as many ex-soldiers had a
small capital besides their pensions
and were able to take up small holdings.

Exemption Boards have nern chor.cn in such a way as to make them aosolutely independent and
removed Irom all Influence, There are over 1,_50 boards throughout the country, each composed ol two
men, one appointed by the county judge in the district concerned and one selected by a joint committee of
Parliament. Being familiar with local conditions where llicy sit, tlie members are well-fitted to appreciate
such reasons for exemption as arc put before them by men called up.
Exemption will be granted to those who can establish that it is in the national inlerest that they remtiln
in civilian life.   This is lor the Exemption Board to decide after having received full information in each case.
The grounds on which exemption may be claimed (which are similar to the grounds recognized in
Great Britain and the United Slates) are as follows:���
(n)   That it is expedient in Ihe nntionnl inlerest thnt lho mnn choutd, instead ol bein. employed in Military Service, bo
engaged in other work in which he is habitually engaged.
I,li) That It la expedient in lhe national inlerest that the man should, Instead of beins employed In Military Service, bo
engaged in other work in which he wishes to he engaged and lor which ho has special qualifications.
(a)   Thnt il Is expedient in tha national Interest that, Instead ol being employed In Military Servicc, he should continue
to be educaled or Irained for any work lor which he is then being educated and trained.
(-)   That serious hardship would ensue il the man were placed on active service, owing to his exceptional financial or
business obligations or domestic position.
(e)   111 health or infirmity.
(/)   That he conscicnliously objects to thc undertaking of combatant servicc and is prohibited from (loin, so by tenets
ond articles of faith, in effect on Ihe sixth day ol July. 1917, of any organized reli.ious denomination existing a���d
well recognized in Canada at such date, and to which he in good faith belongs.
(_)   That he should he exempt because disfranchised under the War Time Election Act.
No Claim for Exemption should Lc put forward unless one or other of these grounds in fact exists,
and no loyal citizen should assist in, or allow himself to he made a party to, any Claim for Exemption unless
thoroughly satisfied that it ismade .in good faith.
Exemption may be applied for by the men selected themselves or by their parents, near relatives or
employers. Application for exemption must be made on printed forms to be found at every port office,
which are to be filled in and left with the postmaster if exemption is desired. The postmaster will forward
the form to a Registrar, who will send it to the appropriate Exempiion Board. In due time, then, the
Applicant will get notice as lo when he must present his case before the Board.

Archie McGregor ot Headquarters met with another automobile
accident early on Wednesday morn
ing v-hen starting for home from
the win-the-war dance. He had
forgotten to turn on his head lights
when starting and was somewhat
dazzled by the lights of several
large cars starting at the same
time, and when half way down 1
turned on his lights aud discover- \
ed a post immediately in front of
him. He attempted to bwerve onto the road too quickly, one wheel
struck the post and the car overturned throwing the seven occupants out. No one was injured,
but the car was badly wrecked!
This is the second accident young
McGregor has had within a couple
of months, the last one was when
earning from a ance at Comox i
when his car overturned on the
Siwash hill. The repair bill was
nearly a hundred dollars, four were
hurt, and McrGregor had just
started to work again and had put
in four days.
The Canadian French have remained
strangely indifferent to the possible fate
of France, perhaps the most reasonable
explanation being that the French
speaking Canadians had come to regard
modem France as forsaken by God because of its treatment of the church.
But other considerations, probably have
an effect, such as the Canadian - French
political aspiration to control the Dominion and the rival nationalistic hopes
of domination through race, language
and religion. The Canadian French
seem rather parochial in their conception of world affairs, fgr the effect on

Form Habits in the Army
Soldiers   who Learn   to   Perform
Daily   Duties  by  the   Clock
Never Forget Them
Ottawa, Oct, 22���One of the
recommendations for military life
iu the opinion of men back from
the front, is that it tends to give
one settled habits of living. The
soldier has a regular round of daily
duties, including lengthy periods
for recreation while in training,
aud he grows used to this method
of ordering his existence quickly,
It is a tradition of the race that
the easiest way to go through life
enjoying oneself is io form good
habits, such as regularity iu rising, going to bed, eating, shaving,
and the like. All these are learned by the men in the army. Their
duties are so ordered that they they
may perform the day's tasks with
the least possible delay and v. itiiotit
Furthermore, the discipline main
taiued in the citizen armies which
are fighting in the present war is
by no means like that of former
times, when harshness and severity
were considered essential. It has
been found out by those who did
not realize it at ouce that the men
of the present Allied armies work
and fight better when treated as
self-respecting individuals, each
one possessed of his freedom if
willing to observe discipline for the
good of the whole.

Dear Mr. Porteous:���
I have just, received, llirougli the Over-
Seas Club, a parcel from tlie People of
Courtenay lor wliicli 1 beg, through you
to thank them, The contents were
most acceptable in themselves, for although our official rations are ample
and no rishing, one doesn't eat more
than one has lo, and any extra delicacies
always go tlown well,
But particularly is il pleasant to feel
that one is not forgotten. It is just this
thought that tloes so much to keep the
fellows' spirits up, and encourage them
to" carry Ou" through all the long drawn
out discomforts, and worse, that they
are called upon to endure.
These gifts are quite as much 'munitions of war, as tlie axplosive kind, anil
we cannot have too many ol either, The
latter are bad for the Huns morale; but
the eatable ones are good for our own.
Personally, not being an 'old timer'
or even a long resident of Courtenay, I
am all the more gratified that I should
have been included in the list, I made
many good friends in Courtenay and
haye the pleasantest recollections of it;
while tiie fact that I was in a small way
connected with its birth as a city gives
me a permanent inrerest In it and its
I hope that I may see it again before
very long, ami perhaps share in the
prosperity that is bound to come when
the clouds of war roll by.
