lhe Vo.ce of Canada
Efforts of Canada in War for Freedom are Warmly Praised
The sacrifices of Canada m behalf
of a democratic peace and for the
overthrow of a monstrous militarism
that threatens every free and civilized man are one of the wonders of
the world. Little in ancient or modern annals surpasses the virtue displayed by Canada. I'or forty months
Canada lias been sending across tin.
sea her noblest and best, No Ytkt
population in the world lias excelled
ner in soldiers recruited, and tiie
mighty contribution has been made
without resort lo conscription, Sin
prized her soul morc than her body,
and wilh splendid chivalry, long before this country came in, she has
been fighting our battle, the battle
for the freedom of lhe world- for a
civilization based on right and not on
might, 'lhc free democracy of thc
United States salutes with admiration the free democracy of Canada.
Across our border dwell a people al
once pacific and heroic, Sueh a people and the government ihey create
to execute their wil! wc can trust.
We need no forts lo guard the frontier. We ilwi.ll at peace with a good
neighbor whose essential purposes
arc our own. God grant thai in the
history of the next three year.-, if
the period of sacrifice is thus prolonged, wc shall show a nobility of
mind and an energy of the spirit
equal to our brothers of the north.���

"The Daily News" of London

thai drunkenness among women lias

Occupation, steady wages and an
independent, self-supporting career
for women had been profoundly beneficial to tin- community, Lord
d'Abarnon said.

Manitoba Honey Crop
Creating a Market in Preference  to
Imported Honey
In spite of lire fact that the yield
of honey per hive was lower than
usual in i'U7, owing to the increase
in lhc number of liivcs, the Manitoba
honey crop was greater than il was
in 1916. and exceeded one million
pounds. Much of the honev wasi
gathered in the month of September.
The high Quality of Manitoba honey is creating a market in preference
to imported honey, many householders being willing to pay a higher
price for_ tiie home product. The average price received by bee-keepers
for the. extracted honey was nineteen to twenty cents, or four to five
cents more than the previous year.
The outlook for increased production in Manitoba is very bright, as
many arc becoming interested in this
profitable industry.
A Pleasant Purgative.���Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills arc so compounded

is only equalled by the gratifying effect they produce. Compounded only
of vegetable substances the curative
finalities of which were- fully tested,
they afford relief without chance of
Sugar Beets in England
For several years (irca* Britain
has experimented wilh the sugar

country less dependent upon foreign
supply, the government is taking an
official concern in the possibilities of
lhis industry, Accordingly, thc government bar- made a loan towards
the creation of a sugar bed factory
near Newark, capable of dealing
with a large daily tonnage. The British Sugar Beet Growers' society has
purchased laid, and il is hoped lhat
this area, with additional land in the
vicinity cultivated by separate farmers, will produce eighty thousand
tons of beets ;. year, which should

Canada Leads
In Wheat Yield
Exportable Surplus Six Times That
of the United States
"Canada leads lhc world in production of wheat per capita," said
Dr. C. A. Zavitz at lhc Western
Ontario Dairymen's convention held
at Slratford recently. "Our production is seventy and a half bushels
per head of population. Argentina,
which ranks next in this respect, prO-
diK-cs fifty-six and a third bushels
per capita, and the Uniled States
forty-five and a third. Canada's exportable surplus of wheat i^ six
times that of lhc United Slates.
In view of the existing wheat
shortage, Dr. _"a\il_ again emphasized the importance of growing
more spring wheat this year, and
again proved lhc groundlessness of
lhe current belief lhat spring wheal
in lhis province does not do so well
as ii formerly did. As n matter of
fact spring wheat yielded better in
the last three years than in any
olhcr three consecutive years in th:
last thirty-five with the exception oi

Petee With German Government Would Not Be Worth a Scrap
Ot Paper, as Officialdom Has Not Changed Since M4, When
Sacred Treaties and International Law were Disregarded
  o ���
The announcement in the Berliner
Tageblatt lhat the industrial regions
of Poland are to be annexed to Prussia is a significant commentary on
thc attitude of mind of thc German
rulers. After all the specious promises to Polish delegates regarding
the future of Poland, it is found that
no reliance whatever can bc placed
on the word of those who now speak
in thc name of Germnny, ITlc militarist party is supreme. President
Wilson was right when hc set aside
the German military autocracy when
considering the question of "peace b.
agreement and understanding," raised by the bureaucrats at Berlin. The
president looks
and permanent peace only tlirougli a
peace between the democracies. The
demand of llie German Junkers is for
a peace of governments.
The latest news from Germany
points to a tightening of the reins by
the warlords. Russia is to be. treated as a conquered nation, 'i'he mask
in at last torn off, and Germany, the
real Germany, demands her pound of
flesh. 'I'he Russians who believed in!
Germany's good faith are now beginning lo realize lhat the German
government and the Russian democracy are as far apart as thc poles,

Smuggling Food
Into Germany
Swiss Officials Kept Busy Watching
Ingenuity in Tricks Across
The Swiss government li is just
handed over six additional motor-
boats to thc customs official'.; whose
difficult and dangerous work it is to
limit down the German smugglers
upon Lake Constance. Smuggling
along thc Swiss frontier has never
reached very alarming proportions,
and thanks to the severe measures to
cope with it in force it is now on thc
decline. Just as at the Swiss inland
centres the police regard every German as a likely spy, so at the frontier the Swiss customs authorities
take for granted tlie ho

A great deal of ingenuity is displayed in the attempts made to deceive the customs officials, How German musicians returning home, from

Canada in War to the Finish
Her Great Problem ls Finance, Says
Hon. Frank Carvell
Speaking as tin; guest of honor before thc Canadian club of New York,
Hon. Frank B. Carvell, Canadian
minister of public works, said that
Canada would remain in the war until thc last gun was fired, "Our love
of libcrt*., the love of liberty that
w Canadians cherish in our hearts,'*!
the speaker said, "caused us to rc-i

The suspicion has reached a. certainty that thc German diplomatic
agents smuggle foodstuffs a.ross thc
frontier to friends or families in the
Fatherland; but international custom
forbids the examination hy the customs officials of lhc diplomatic valines. The smuggling carried on by
authorized German agents constitutes a morc serious affair, alike for
thc allies, less ihan ever disinclined
to scc the blockade weapon blunted,
and for the Swiss, whose food situation is sufficiently critical at present.
Thc rationing regulations and the rc-
strictions concerning the sale and accumulation of food has happily led
to a diminution in the smuggling
conducted under German official auspices. The lines on- which lhe official contraband organizers worked
before the introduction of the regulations in question were extremely
simple. German agents, mainly commercial travelers, who know Switzerland well, traveled through thc
country from Basic to Lugano, from
St. Gall to Geneva, buying all the
foodstuffs and raw materials possible
at fancy prices, and forwarding
theni, when bought, to storage depots at Berne or Zurich.

Royal Standard Flour
Firmly Established in
Public Favor
As milled in the past���as milled today���something, more  than  merely Good Flour.     It is
Supremely Good Flour
"Royal Standard " excells in all the points by
which a Flour is judged.    It produces a larger
loaf-with a crisper crust-with a bread flavor that
is more de icate and palatable
'Royal Standard'' milled under tlie Government
regulations enables the housewife lo make a
genuine conservation loaf. If she will add at
every baking, say, 25 per cent, of Royal .Standard Rye Flour, she will aid still further the
conservation of wheat for the Allies, and will
find lier bread loses not one jot of delicious
wholesouieness or satisfying llavor,
Test the idea at your next baking

but if there was trouble in Europe
anil the Old Country needed help,
we'd all go across."
"In a mild way, tiro journey's
something of an adventure," Carmen suggested. "Doesn't that appeal to a man?"
'It does,"  poster
might imagine that there was enough
adventure here, hut it really isn't so.

comfort; you want something fresh,
a job, in fact, that you don't under-

look at ii economically, this is foolish."
"I like you better as a sentiment
alist than a philosopher," Carmen
answered. "It's the former outgoes lo when one wants things
done. However, if you would like a
dance "
She danced well and Foster knew
there wcrc men in the hall who envied Iiini. He, moreover, imagined
that Carmen knew it would bc remarked that she hnd banished her
other attendants and shown him
special favor. This, of course, would
not trouble her, because Carmen
generally ilid what she pleased, but
he felt inclined to wonder about her
object. He knew her well enough
to think she had an object. When
thc music slopped she said, "Nov,-
you may lake mc in to supper."
Supper was served in au anteroom, hui, although lhis was contrary to local custom, thc guests
came in when lhcy liked and were
provided with small, separate tables.
Instead of jster's leading, Carmen
guided him to a ��� jiiict nook, partly
screened hy cedar branches, where
tlicy could scc without being seen.
Ue thought it significant thai a spot
with such advantages should he unoccupied, but this did not cause liim
much surprise. Ihings generally
happened as Carmen wanted, and it
was a privilege to s-ip with the prettiest and cleverest girl in the hall.
"You are going to stay at Feath-
crstonc's home in England, aren't
your"  she asked  by  and hy.
"Yes," said Foster, who wondered
how she knew. "Since I've spent len
years on the plains and in the bush,
it will be a rather embarrassing
change. You see, I'm better used to
bachelor shacks ami logging camps
than   English country homes."
Carmen firmly brought him back-
to lie subject. "Do yon know much
about his relatives? It's obvious
lhat he belongs to a good family.
However, you'll havc him with you."
Poster, who did not mean to tell
her ihai Featherstone was not going with him. smiled.
"I know nothing about them. In

Carmen gave him a level, critical
glance. "They won't hc able to iimi
much fault wiih you, and if lhcy did,
yuu wouldn't guess it, so it wouldn't
matter, But that is not what I
want. Von have been Fealherstone's
partner for conic time, and it's curious di.it he has told you nothing
aboul  his home."
"Ill's reserve, 1," said Foster, who
looked up as Daly came into the

('armen glanced somewhat coldly.
"Do you know what that man is do-

"I don't, 'ml as hi- s agent for an

"Hut he's often in your falhcr's office and at your liouse, and Mr. Austin doesn't buy machines."
"'I hen pcrhaj he's speculating hi

Daly and his companion sat down
noi far off. The lellow was well
drt-ised and on the whole a hand-
sOiiie man, though there was nothing about him to excite marked attention. Hc looked a li I tic older
than Foster, who studied him
thoughtfully, Daly had sold onc or
two machines in the neighborhood
of the Crossing, but the business hc
did there hardly seemed to warrant
his visit. It was possible that he
made it an excuse for watching
Featherstone, but Foster fancied that
Carmen knew more about llilll than
she confessed,
"Perhaps you will visit Scotland
be-fore yotl come back,'1 she said by
and by.
"It's possible. Feathcrstone's relations live near lhe border.
"Ihen I dare say you will take a
packet  for mc to  Edinburgh,"
"Of course," said Foster, who felt
sonic surprise, and thought Carmen
saw this although .-he looked at
him  gratefully,
"I know you'll lake care of It,
and yotl don't ask questions; but
>ou wonder why 1 want to send it
by you. Well, lhc girls arc inquisitive in our post office, and I'm sending the packet to a man. Besides 1
wouldn't like it damaged and things
sometimes get broken in  the mail."
Foster said tin's often happened
and hinted ,hat lhe man was fortunate, but Carmen laughed.
"Oh," she said, "he's as old as my
father; we have friends in thc Old
Country. Hut there really is a little
secret about the matter, and I don't
want anybody but yotl to sec the
"Very well; hut I believe the customs searchers, who examine _ your

Yon have such a careless and innocent look. For all that, your friends
know you can be ttusted."
"Thank you! I suppose I'm lucky,
because one mccls people whose
looks are against them. Anyhow,
I'll lake the packet, and if necessary,
protect it with my life."
"It won't he necessary," Carmen
answered, smiling, and although she
talked about other matters for some
minutes before she told him to take
her back* to the hall, he imagined
ihis was tactiul politeness and    she
did not want to dismiss him     too
soon after obtaining her object.
Hc danced one or two dances with
other partners and enjoyed them
keenly. His work was finished for
the winter, and after the strenuous
toil of the last ten years, it was a
new and exhilarating experience to
feel at liberty. Then there- was no
reason lie should deny himself the
p'easurc he expected to derive from
iiis trip. Their small mill was only
adapted for the supply of certain
kinds of lumber, for winch there was
now not much demand, and Ihey had
not enough money to remodel it,
while business would not gel brisk
again until the spring.

Motor Transport in War
Several times during thc war motor-driven vehicles have dramatically
saved the day for the allies. Hordes
of London motor busses carried the"
"Tommies" to and from the battlefields in the early, anxious days of
the war. The swift transportation
by taxi of the army defending Paris
helped to win the \iciory of the
Manic. Thousands of motors rushed the poilus to the saving of Verdun. Now comes the victory at
Gaza, in which tanks played a prominent part and of which it was long
ago written, in the Hook of Judges,
lhat, though the tribe of Judah took
tlm city, it would not drive oul
lho inhabitants of the vnllcv because
tlicy had "chariots of iron." Thanks
to these modern "iron chariots," Ibe
"tanks," the odds have a, last _ favored the invaders. The "Philistines"
have been cleared out by the onslaught of the "tanks" on llm sands,
and the attack of the monitors on
thc shores of Gaza.
"What makes that hen of yours
cackle so loudly?" inquired Jenkins
of his neighbor.

Demand for Safely Razors
Gillette   Safety     Razor     Company
Plana $800,000 Addition
to Factory
"The article that will not stand
the test of war-time conditions, is
not worth making or buying at any
time," was the significant remark of
Mr. J. E. Aldred, of Sbawinigan
Water & Power Co., who is chairman of thc hoard of directors of the
Gillette Safety Razor Co., at thc recent convention of the latter organization in Boston. Reports of progress and plans for expansion made
at the convention indicated that thc
Gillette certainly belongs in the category with war-time essentials and
notable successes.
Mr. A. A. Bittues, managing director of the Gillette Safety Razor Co.,
of Canada, told of extensions to the
Montreal factory which permit of a
[combined output of razors and blades
live times as great us before the war,
and ol growing exports to such I'ar-
olf lands as South Africa, Australia
and the  Fiji  Islands.
Mr. Frank Fahey, vice-president, of
the Boston company, and Mr. Tho-
[mas W. I'elh.-iin, sab'-i manager, and
I general counsel, oiiTncd p'ans for
an immediate addition lo the Boston
plant to cost $800,000. When this is
completed next fall, the output ol the
American and Canadian plants combined will reach 15,000 razors and
1,200,000 blades per day. I'he estimated output for 191K is 1.400,000
razors ami 96,000,000 blades.
Thc necessity for such rapid increase and enormous output was
clearly shown by a few recent orders. Thc Y.M.C.A. recently sent
overseas 6,000 razors ami 15,000
dozen blades. The American expeditionary forces in France have already
been supplied will 66,000 azors and
115.000 dozen blades, while a cable
order received during lhc convention
from the Gillette representative in
Paris called for 200,000 razors and
1,500.000 dozen blades.
Meeting such a demand would bc
out of the rral i of possibility weie
it not for the really marvellous machines invented and installed by Mr.
W. li. Nickerson, the mechanical
and construction engineer of the
Gillette organization from its very
inception. These machines, human
in their dexterity aud superhuman in
their speed and accuracy, turn    out
over 22 miles of shaving edge a drfy,
every particle of which is tested to
split a hair.
Facts placed before the convention go lo prove that to the tivops
of all the allied armies the Gillette
is a boon, for it brings to the very
front line trenches one of the home
comforts which are so rare, ye* so
welcome to the men. Officers, observers and writers agree that the
clean shave is one of the sirongest
factors in maintaining their morale
and so bringing victor* within reach.
United States of World
Hopes for a United States of the
world when 1918 is ended were expressed by Governor J.A.A. Burn-
qtilst of Minnesota, in a New Year
"Our civil war resulted in the maintenance of the United States of
America, with a supreme court to
decide differences between states oli
the union," hc said.
"What a great year 1913 will bc If
before its expiration the war in
which we ard engaged will bc the
means of uniting more closely the
lighting nations into such a United
Stales  of the  world  and  will  enable
them lo establish   an   international
court for thc settling of International disputes."

About the Walrus
Clue of the thickest skinned animals in existence is the walrus, which
is found in great herds on the icefields of the ocean and in winter on

lie split many times, every layer a
tough, strong, durable leather. The
hides are- used feu- making bags,
