He panted am! resumed: "Well, he
liaa a clue. It's curious 1 didn't think
cf mentioning before that. 1 spoke ot
the watchman, bn". 1 thought the
fellow was Tordon. I wonder how
the thief will get the hoiuls across
to Europe?"
"There would be some danger in
tarrying Ihem; anyhow, he'd imagine
so, although it looks as if Hulton
doesn't mean to tell lhc polio-: much.
just yet. Oi course, there's thc mail,
out the thief might be afraid lo post
thc bonds."
Featherstone nodded. "I think it's
in Hulton's favor lhat he'll he satisfied with one oi the private detective
agencies to begin with, while the
man he's looking for will hc on his
guard against thc police. Besides, it's
possible that the lellow won't take
many precautions, since there's a
plausible explanation of Fred Hulton's death.
"Do you think the man you passed
saw you well enough to know you
"Hc may have done so."
"Then if he imagined that von saw
him, it would -make a differene," Foster said thoughtfully. "He'd reckon
that you -,vcrc the greatest, danger Ire
had to guard against.
Featherstone stopped and caught,
his comrade's arm as the yard locomotive pushed some cars along the
track they were to cross and lhe
harsh tolling oi thc bell made talking
difficult. When lire cars had passed
they let the mailer drop and went
back to the hotel where they bad left
their automobile,
Poster Make, a Promise
.here was keen frost next evening and Foster drove to the Crossing without his comrade who thought
Jt wiser to "tay at home. The reunion he was going to attend was
held annually by one or two mutual-
Improvement societies that combined
to open llieir white1- sessions. It had
originally begun vlth a lecture on
art or philosophy, but had degenerated into a supper and dance. Supper came early, because in Western
Canada the meal is generally served
about six o'clock.
The wooden hall was decorated
with flags and boughs, and well
tilled with young men and women,
besides a number of older ci i_ens.
The floor and music were good, and
Foster enjoyed two dances before he
met Carmen Austin. He had uot
sought her out, because she was surrounded by others, and hc knew that
If she wanted to dance with him she
would let him know. It was generally wise lo wait Carmen's pleasure.
When be lefl his last partner hc
Itcod in a quiet nook, lo )king about,
the hall. The girls were prcily and
tastefully dressed, though generally
paler than the young Englishwomen
he remembered. The men were athletic, and their well-cut cloths, which
fitted somewhat tightly, showed their
finely developed bul rather lean figures. They had a virile, decided
look, and an ease of manner that indicated perfect self-confidence. Indeed, some wcrc marked by an air
of smartness lhat was half aggressive.
A large number were employed at
thc Hulton factor-,, but there were
brown-laced farmers and miners from
the bush, as well as storekeepers
from the  town.
On the whole, their dress, manners
and conversation were American and
Foster was sometimes puzzled by
their inconsistency. Hc liked tin-so
people and got on well with them,
but had soon discovered that in order
to do so he musl abandon his British habits and idiosyncrasies. His
neighbors often showed a certain
half hostile contempt for the customs of thc Old Country, and he admitted that had he been less acquainted with their character, it
would have been easy to imagine
that Gardner's Crossing was situated
in Michigan instead of Ontario. Yet
they had rejected the Reciprocity
Treaty on patriotic grounds, and in
a recent crisis bad demonstrated their
'passionate approval of Britain's policy. He had no doubt that if thc
\ need came ihey would offtr the moth-
i er country the best they had with
I generous enthusiasm, and nobody
I knew belter that their best was very
I good.
I By and by Carmen dismissed the
young men around her and summoned him with a graceful motion of her
fan. Hc crossed thc floor, and when
be stopped close by with ,t bow that
was humorously respectful she gave
him a cool, approving glance. Though
ihe had known hardship, his face was
smooth, and when unoccupied he had
a good-humored and somewhat languid air. He was tall and rather
thin, but athlete toil had toughened
and strengthened him, and he had
frank grey ryes that generally smiled. A glove "that looked significantly
slack, covered his left band, which
hail been maimed by a circular saw,
when shortness of funds forced him
to work in his mill.
Carmen was a blonde, but with
none of the softness that often char
actcri7.es tllis type of beauty. Her
features wcrc sharply cut, her wcll-
proporlioncd figure was firmly lined,
and the lack ei color in her face was
made up for by the keen sparkle in
her eye--. \s a rule. Carmen Austin's
wishes were carried out. She knew
how to command, and rival beauties
who now and then ventured to oppose her soon found that her power
was unshakable.
"You haven'l thought it worth
while to ask for a dance yet," she remarked, and Foster could not tell if
she was offended or not.
"No,"   lie  replied,  smiling,  "l    WHS
afraid of getting a    disappointment,
since I didn't know your plans, but
I only made a few engagements jn case
I yoti sent for me.   Onc finds it best
lo wait your orders."
Carmen studied him thoughfully.
"You generally take the. proper line;
sometimes I think you're, cleverer
than you look. Anyway, one isn't
forced to explain things to you. Explaining what one. wants is always
"Exactly. My business is to guess
what you would like and carry it out
as far as I can. When I'm right
this saves you some trouble and
gives me keen satisfaction. It makes
me, think I am intelligent."
"Our boys arc a pretty good sample, but lhcy don't talk like that, T
suppose you learned it in the Old
Country, You know, you're very
English, in some, respects."
"Well," said Foster, "that is really
not my fault. 1 was bom English,
but I'll admit that I've found It a
drawback since I came to Canada."
Carmen indicated the chair next
her. "You may sit down if you like.
You start for ihr Old Country on
Thursday don't you?''
"Thank you, yes," said Foster.
"One likes to be in the. fashion, and
it's quite tbe proper thing to make
the trip when work's finished for the
winter. Vou find miners saving
iheir wages to buy a ticket, ami the
.Manitoba men sail across by dozens
after a good harvest. As they oilen
maintain that the Old Country's a
back number, one wonders why they
"After all, T suppose they were
born there."
"That doesn't seem lo count.    \-.i

first of all than the man who's oni.'.-

(Jranlcd that beef and bacon are
being gradually ousted in many
homes where they have hitherto been
popular, what then is to bc substituted as a staple food, one which
has the nourishing properties of
meat and which may bc used without any qualms of conscience over
depriving the armies and thc needy
of Europe with the sustenance
which tlicy require?
The realization ia being forced
home on the people of Canada that
fish comes first in supplying this
need and that its possibilities are
practically limitless.
In this thc Dominion is singularly
But it is essciitinl that the women
take the matter seriously to heart.
Virtually they are going to control
and broaden the fish market. Tlicy
must remember that they are not
necessarily buying fish because it is
cheaper thau meat but because meat
is needed in Europe. The appeal of
the allied people is one which can
neither be denied nor ignored. Ami
there is the olhcr consideration that
thc armies must have the strongest
and most sustaining foods.
The war should be the means of
bringing fish into its true and proper
place in the diet of the people of
Canada. Fish hi* been much neglected and it is only now that it ��s
being seriously thought of as a national source of food supply. The
food controller has repeatedly *m-
phasized the necessity for the use
of more fish and the lish committee
has promoted a vigorous campaign
for the popularization of various
kinds of fish hitherto deprived of an
honorable place on the market.
Custom and   tradition have   com
bincd to stultify the fish trade. A
few varieties have been standaidizcd
and have come to represent the fish
supply of Canada, while all the time
there have been as- good fish in the |
sea as ever came out of it.
Thc other day pollock was served
at a luncheon in Ottawa to a group
of men who did not know what kind
of fish they were eating. When asked how they liked it, they declared
it to be better than cod or even halibut, of which Canadian housewives
make such persistent use.
There are the grayfish, the Atlantic Blue Back, the ctisk, the hake, the
cat fish, the mackerel, the alcwife,
the shad and thc swordfish. All of
these if well cooked are extremely
wholesome and palatable. The fisherman knows their virtues and marvels at the women inland who scorn
Ihem. He is ready to supply them.
The dealer is ready to carry them if
he is assured that there will be a
market for them.
Thus It is "up to" the women <
Canada 16 create the market.    They
can do it by persistently demanding
the unfamiliar varieties.
They will soon find them making
their appearance on the market if
the demand is kept up.
The responsibility of the women'
does not end there. Once on tilts
market the fish must be bought. They
must be tooked in such a variety of
ways and so attractively that they
will make au immediate conquest or
the family palate. By doubling our
consumption of fish we could send
overseas 23 shiploads of beef and
pork of five thousand tons each.

Quite ��� Difference
German Idea of Government It te
Impose aa Alien "Kultur" on
Other People
Some of the strange Eastern crowd
which watched General Allcnby enter Jerusalem must have remembered
a very different scene nearly twenty
years before, when the kaiser stopped there on his tour of the Near
East. The British commander, mindful of the physical limitations of the
narrow, winding streets and recalling
the custom of the old Crusaders,
walked on foot through the gate, attended by his staff and the military
attaches���our own among them. The
kaiser did nothing of the sort. Although Jerusalem is no place for carriages, he insisted that it be made
one. As the Jaffa gate was much too
narrow for the imperial equipage, a
part of the_ wall was torn down to
make sufficient room. The German
idea of government is to impose an
alien "kultur" on other people. The
British never make any such attempt.
They respect native customs and remove their shoes at flic door of a
mosque.���Boston Globe.

Victims of Indigestion Often Dislike
the Sight and Smell of Food
Every healthy man and woman
should havc a natural desire for food
at meal limes. Tliis means lhat tlie
digestion is in working order and
that thc blood is in good condition.
Hut if you fee! a dislike for lood���if
the sight and smell of wholesome
food repels you���then you may bc
sure that all is not well, If afler a
night's rest you havc no appetite for
breakfast, your digestion requires at
tcntion, If your food is distasteful; or
if you feel that it is a trouble to cat,
your stomach is rebelling. You do
not digest properly thc food you are
taking and therefore not hungry.
All these symptoms of a disordered digestion mean that thc blood
is not absorbing proper nourishment
from food, for the work of the blood
is to collect proper nourishment
from food and impart it to the system. The stomach tries to refuse
food thc nutriment from which the
blood cannot absorb, and this causes
the lack of appetite. If you force
yourself to cat the undigested food
becomes a clog to the system. Nature is warning you. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills alone give the blood the
richness and purity that it requires
to perform its natural function. That
is why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure
lhe most obstinate cases of indigestion���why they will cure any trouble
due to poor blood. Miss Liz.ie Ash-
Ion, Thamesvllle, Ont,, says:���"1 suffered for years with stomach trouble.
At times thc distress WS.S so great
that vomiting would follow, and
there was always severe pain after
c.-'.ling. I tried several remedies but
they did not help me, On thc con-
trary thc trouble was grov.iin* worse
and got so bad at last that I could
not keep anything on my stomach,
Finally 1 began using Dr. Williams'
Pink I'ills, and gradually the trouble
began to leave mc, and 1 regained
in all respects my customary good
health, and enjoyment of food. I
make this statement voluntarily so
that others may know of thc wonderful results that follow the use of this

Mastication Saves Pood
The process of proper mastication
as an clement of food control, to
which we have alluded before, is
being tried in England with success.
It has becn proven on 7,000 school
children in Darling. Lancashire, that
lessons controlling food waste by
"boiling" lessen consumption of
bread by 25 per cent, and produce at the same lime increased nutrition. The Chittenden method
(dry feeding with complete mastication) is a long step towards food
conservation. Germany has adopted
it, onc pamphlet issued by the quartermaster-general of the German
army is entitled "Germans, Fletch-

same basis as thai prevailing in the
army unless the position tilled is
worth more money, when the employer would pay the full wage. The
object is to fill up the ranks of labor

Notes and Comments
msmuwaaaammm nn'jjiaasmsmaswm
Universal regret lias been expres
sed at the u_.tii.tiel) death of Premier Brewster, and in sinning in this
we are voicing the sentiments of
our readers. Fierce though political enmity may be, il is fortunately
subordinate to friendship, appreciation and admiration, The late
premier will be greatly missed for
lie cmild ill be spared. He alone
could unite his party. ..nil he alone
could by some wonderful exercise
of magnetism restrain an often unruly cabinet. It i.s said that of all
the cabinet but one member remained at all time'i loyal to his leader,
and resolutely stuck to him through
tiie stormy passages of such widely
divergent matters as prohibition,
union govern ment. and the ."no
pa*.ronage" pledge. The struggle
undoubtedly shortened his life, but
it says much for him as a man that
lie met with the success that he
really achieved, for had he
lia\-e been a less worthy man he
would have been a more success
fill politician, The opposition
caused the Premier less trouble
than did the constant worry of his
divided supporters, and while the
Conservatives sharply criticised bis
fellow ministers they had less fault
to find with Mr. Mr, Brewster.
His end was a peaceful one, accompanied by mosl touching incidents
marking the reality of things as op
posed to the unreality: for while
the dying chieftain held his brother
band until the end came, only one
of his cabinet Was even OU llis way
to his bedside, aud that was his
failhlul McLean. Thr- rest were
at Victoria haggling over the choice
of his  successor,   not   that   they
thought aught else but that Mr,
Brewster was to hold a position
under Sir Robert Borden in the
Union Cabinet. He was not the
least in line of the premiers of B.
C.    May he rest in peace.
By the time these lines are in
print the new premier will have
been chosen, At least four aspirants claim she support of the government party, but not oue of them
can count ou unaiiiiimity of support
It only adds to the strong claims of
a Union and non-party government
for the province. The provincial
finances are in worse shape than
ever, decrease of expenditure is desirable rather than increase of taxation, economy in tht government
departments is still unreal, war
time is no time for rival politicians
to waste their own time together
wilh the people's inonty. The re
turned soldiers' problem has yet to
lie tackled properly, and tbe vast
natural resources of B. C. must be
developed .nil speedily, These
are some of the calls for reform
methods. The are other grave
mailers suc'i as colouiz.tioii by
people of Biiti-h blood, curtailment of expenditure by municipal
and other public bodies, and a
score of equally important questions
to be solved, No one wants a
general election, biitevery thinking
man and woman realizes that it is
far from well with B. C. and that
the sooner a change comes, the
From this morning's papers we
learn that the Hon. John Oliver
has been chosen as Premier at a
loug party caucus. There will not
be a by-election. Neither will tbe
constituency repieseuted by Mr,
Brewster be opened until after llie

Annual Statement ot Union
Dank of Canada is Strong
Assets increased during the year by
over 31% to $143,400,000 and all
Departments of Business Show
Corresponding Growth���Note Circulation's Great Expansion���Earnings Showed Good Increase.
A splendid exhibit of progress is
made by the fifty-third annual report
oi ihc Union Hank of Canada, for the
year ended November .1(1, 1917, The
asseis of this great Institution have
now attained the figures of $143,411,-
027, and show an increase of more
than ;il per cent, for lhe year. In Ihc
three years since the lirst war-time
balance-sheet, that of 1914, the assets have increased hy llic sum of
approximately 881,600,000, or 75 pet-
cent, since the ncginning of the war.
That the year 1917 should have
eclipsed its predecessors ir- respect
both of business growth �����u of profits is particularly interesting, in view
of lhe fact thai il was lhe first year
of office of ihe new General Manager, Mr. If. It. Shaw, and also the
first year of operation of the Bank's
New York Agency, established early
ir, 1917 with an advisory committee
including such prominent American
financiers as Messrs. Stuyvcsant
Fish, Cornelius Vanderbilt and Gilbert G. Thome.
The balance sheet shows lhat the
Bank now has liabilities to lhe public
totalling $132,162,444, the figures for
all classes of deposits and note circulation showing heavy increases.
Thc note circulation is especially interesting, as it has reached the figure
of $12,779,662, the highest in proportion to capital of any Canadian Bank,
which is a good indication of thc
confidence reposed in lhc Union
Bank all ovcr Canada and of lhc
profitable nature of ils connections.
The non-interest-bearing deposits arc
$4.,3(ig,804 and the interest-bearing
deposits S73.50S.157, while the balances due to other Banks total about
a million and a half. There are also
conditional liabilities upon acceptances under letters of credit totaling $2,586,609,
Against these liabilities thc Union
Bank possesses, as already stated,
assets to lhc amount of $143,411,927,
and of lhis amount $77,000,391 consists of cash and promptly realisable
balances and securities. Current coin
and Dominion notes alone account
for $20,468,736, the deposits in the
Central Cold Reserve (thc basis for
lhe Hank's large excess note issue) is
$8,200,000, notes of other hanks are
$770,549 and cheques on other Banks
$3,912,030, Bank balances in Canada
$8_,.r!. and abroad $5,193,687, circulation fund deposit $260,000. The
Bank's large holdings of gilt-edged
securities are classified as follows:
Dominion and Provincial Gov m-
mcnls $9,361,729; Canadian Municipals and llritish, Foreign and Colonial public securities, $16,244,470 (this
item includes thc Bank's holdings of
Britisii Treasury bills and oilier similar securities, subscribed with a
view to supporting the financing of
the Empire for munitions and food
supplies from Canada) aud Railway
and other securities $2,933,212.' The
call loans iu Canada arc $6,634,990
xrnl cal! loans elsewhere $2,938,000.
The total of cash and liquid assets
comprised in these items is equivalent to 57 per cent, of thc public
liabilities, which is even stronger
than the excellent showing made last
Chief among the non-liquid assets
are of course, ihe current loans and
discounts, of which the total in Canada is $58,791,493 and outside of Canada $3,154,431. Real estate other
than Bank premises amounts to
$370,603, mortgages to $99,974, overdue debts to $.50,201 and Bank premises to $1,106,299.
Thc Union Bank made very satisfactory earnings during the year, not
surprisingly large in relation to the
volume of business, hut substantial
in relation to the capital of the
Bank, which has nol heen increased
since the days when thc Bank's business was only about one-half of what
it is today. The earnings were $763,-
463. Dividends and hoiuis, totalling
9 per cent, look $450,000 and $150,-
000 was transferred to thc Contingent Account and $50,000 paid in war
tax. Contributions to various patriotic purposes and lo Ihe pension
fund took $25,000 and _ $7S,000 was
written off Bank premises, real estate and alterations, with the result
that the balance of profits carried
forward was increased from $93,160
to $106,624.

Having become reconciled to Russia's withdrawal from the war, the

"Our sword alone will never he able

while ton Tirpitz, addressing the

declared iu tlie Prussian Diet, thai
"ihe German people do not want

the growing restiveness of the German people under their military

If Artillery Not Effective Must
Stalked and Bombed by
Thc business of attacking lho German "pillboxes" has been reduced almost to a mathematical science by
the British army, Pillboxes which
arc nol "done in" by the big guns in
the preliminary bombardment arc
rushed by thc infantry and a grenade
is dropped through one of thc loopholes.
An attack on a little section of
German line a few days ago illustrated the anti-pillbox technique. Tho
attack was made under desperate
weather conditions. A cold wind cut
through thc men's drenched clothing
and heavy raindrops stung their
numbed faces. The lino of craters'
and shell holes which thc advanced
British troops held was thigh deep
in water and mud, while sections of
the hastily raised sand hag parapet
kept, sliding down as the sodden
earth gave way. The waiting men
were almost deafened by the overhead blast of the artillery drum lire.
The orders of the officers could hardly bc beard a few feet away, and had
to be shouted down from crater to
crater along thc irregular lino,
The men had been ready lor a long
lime, but in Ihcsc modern battles all
depends upon the guns and everything must wait for them to finish
off their work. At last the moment
came, whistles hlew faintly, inarticulate voices sounded, and the fire curtain lifted so that thc earth of the
first objective lay quiescent and
Smoking���-no longer spouting in
black, flame-shot plumes toward lhc
sky. .
There was no instant leaping irom
ihe. trench. Men clambered cumber-
ously up the. slippery staeis of the
craters, falling on hands and knees in
the mud. Here and there a soldier
helped a falling comrade to regain
his balance. Voices cursed, laughed,
or complained; non-commissioned officers herded on llieir sections and
the attack was launched. Right and
left they ploughed and the cratercd
surface of the barren earth, seemed to
disgorge men who moved slowly,
some at wide intervals, some grouped together circling the edge of
some quagmire,
Noises were all confused and indistinct; enemy shells burst overhead, but their report was drowned
by the thunder of the British barrage. Somewhere up-wind smoke
bombs had been lighted and the wind
carried down a protecting veil of
mist and lhe acrid scent ot chemicals.
! An occasional man fell lace downward in the mud; others, not so badly bit, rolled iulo the deceptive cover of water-filled craters to flounder
there, till stretcher bearers could recover theni, Unwoundcd men who
had been engulfed by mud holes to
the thighs appealed to comrades to
pull them clear, but thc wind bore
iheir voices away, and the ranks
plodded on, unheeding, to thc assault.
Gradually thc mer. struggled up the
crest of thc vise panting and out of
breath, Concrcie pillbox gim emplacements bulged shattered and exposed among the craters.
. One pillbox atop the crost was still
in aciion. From its mound of earth
came the familiar rat-rat-tat, and tlie
air seemed full of the whip lash of
bullets. Someone shouted and gesticulated. The men hrokc into a shambling run. A hand grenade burst in the
mud a yard or two short of thc em-
brassurc; then, like a pack of hounds
men crowded forward to the quarry.
A section circled the rear and rifle
firing broke out at close quarters.
Bullets were aimed at the slits, and
the bullets lhat went true ricochetted
inside thc pillbox in search of Iheir
target. Suddenly a wild figure in
khaki appeared, gesticulating on the
doomed concrete top, knelt down and
threw something through the cmbras-
sure. A moment and thc narrow
slip spouted flame and smoke wreathed the group.    Then all was quiet.
Three minutes laler two wounded
British soldiers were keeping watch
over the three remaining live members of the captured garrison. The
wave of attack had passed on over
the. defenses and thc pillbox had fallen.
Belgian Relief Commissioner Ftee to Face with a Monster, Who
Stated that Starvation waa a Tremendous Force with Which
To Fnforce the Law of Slavery
"Starvation is a tremendous force
with which wc can make these, people do what we want."
The speaker was General von
Bissing, the Prussian military governor of Belgium, who recently died,
He was talking to ,i. high official of
the Belgian Relief Commission
Frederic C. Walcott,
Mr. Walcott is a widely known
New York hanker, who about two
years ago gave up his active business for the purpose of European
relief work. He is now an associate
of Mr. Hoover's in thc food conservation campaign, He recently told
the slory of his experiences in Belgium and Poland at a meeting in
Carengie Hall, held under lhe auspices of the National Security League. These experiences, he said, constitute the explanation oi his devoting his whole time to food conservation.
"While in Belgium, talking almost
daily with the German officers,"   he
said, "I asked Governor-General von
Bissing what he would do or    what
ould happen if ihis relief of    Bcl-
..    suddenly slopped.    Hc said:
That is very simple.   It has   all
been worked out   on paper   months
ago,   because for   a long   time we
have    been   expecting    it to   break
down. In thirty or sixty days starvation would grip  these    people,    and
starvation is   a    tremendous    force,
with which   we   could make    these
oph: do what wc want, namely, to
milc on
ou   scc
get the industrial pari into Germany,
to replace, the German workingnien,
so thnt they can go to thc (rout to
fight the English and French,     We
would move hundreds of   thousands
of  other Belgians down into  Mesopotamia    as    rapidly as     we could
transport them,   construct irrigation
works, and make that country   produce food for Germany, All that arc
loo weak   or   too old or too young
wc    would send before tlie   English
and French firing line���then let the
Germans overflow into this rich
tile country,'   And, with a
ihis face, he added: 'Don't
'that it wc have fo give Belgium back
her liberty    when tho war is ovcr,
she    automatically becomes a   German province, and wo hold thc port
of Antwerp, which is what we    are
after?" It seemed to mc I wa
lo face with a monster. For th
time it dawned upon me that Treit
schke's, Nieutzsche's and Bernhardi's
books were really true.    It was
mc as if somebody bad struck
in the face."
Mr. Walcott described a similar
experience in Poland. The Germans
not only permitted him, but asked
him, to go to Poland, for "they said
thc worst thing had happened there
that ever happened lo lhc human
race���people had died and were
dying hy tho hundreds oi thousands
and if I could bring some food into
Poland through the British blockade, they, the German officials,
would be grateful, because tho
sighls in Poland were demoralizing
the German troops.'1 (The irony of
this provoked Mr, Walcolt's audience to laughter). Hc went to
Poland and remained there some
months, always staying at German
headquarter.-, wherever ho. might be.

The Question of Sugar
The  Necessity   of   Conserving   Sup.
plies of Sugar
The production of beet sugar in
France this year has been estimated
at only 207,000 tons, as compared
with an average annual production
during the five years before the war
1909-13) of 752,542, Normal consumption is 704,830 ton-. Tlie beet
sugar production of Italy has also
been reduced from a pre-war average of 211,050 tons to 75.0JO tons.
The pre-war annua! consumption of
sugar in lhe United Kingdom was
2,05(3,000 tons, all of which had to be
imported. About 70 per rent, of the
supply oi the United Kingdom cams
from countries from which it is now
cut off by the war. Great Britain
France and Italy would require to
import about 2,700,000 tons before
thc next crop���and most of it from
new sources���if they were to maintain their normal consumption.
But the necessity of co'iservin-?
supplies oi sugar, which was emphasized by thc shortage of shipping,
has resulted in stern economies
among the allies. Before the war,
England had the largest p- r capita
consumption of sugar of any nation
���93'j pounds per person per year.
This has now been reduced to -*5
pounds per person per year, or about
one ounce per day per person. In
Great Britain prices havc now been

Banquet to Soldiers
Great Success
The I. O. D, E. scored another
success on Friday evening last when
they prep red the banquet in honor the boys who have returned from
the front, The tables were fairly
groaning wit h tasty viands, and although preparations were made for
upwards of a hui-dred gut-its, near- !
ly fifty had lo be provided for at a
second table. This event will prove
an historical one in the annals of
Courtenay-���for it is the first to welcome heroes from the greatest war
ever seen in the world's history.
When the wai is over and the rest
of our boys return there will be
another one -one at which all will
be joy except for the memory of
those who will not come bark.
After justice had been done to
the good things provided, Mayor
Duncan, the Toasluiasler, said that
this was a duty which had been long
deferred, and the ladies had now
made a great seccess of the occasion. It was fitting that we should
welcome these boys back when thev
had put forth one of tiie noblest
efforts men had ever put forth for
fair play, There wa- no doubt of
the inevitalile'oulcome, but it may
take longer than we thought. The
chairman then presented the addresses to the following: Capt, G,
H. Ash, Lieut, R. McCuaig, Sergt
Major Stafford, Corp, Geo, Barass,
Corp. A' N. Jones, Pte. Angus
Beaton, Pte. Davis, Pte. J, Fitzgerald, Pte. J. K. Johnston, Sergt,
Major Brown. Pte. R. Perrot, Pte.
W."Blight, Pte. W, Grist, Pte. J
Milligan, Pte, C. Hera per, Sergt.
Fach of those present thanked
the citizens for their kindness in
very short speeches.
The Chairman then proposed a
toast to "Our Departed Heroes,"
which was observed by the audience standing in silence,
"The King" was honored by
singing the National Anthem,
"The Boys who are Overseas"
was responded to by Mr. T, Pearse
who said that our thoughts were
all wilh theni; th* friends of the
returned ones were glad to see them
but it might be many days before
the others came back. It was hard
to realize how much we owe to the
boys at the front, but for them we
might now be under the thumb of
Germany. He also suggested that
a message of good cheer be sent to
our boys at the front.
In response to "The Boys Over- j

was the  first teetotal  banquet in

R. U. Hurford said that it was
with a great deal of pleasure he replied to this toast; Among the returned boys were several old timers
