that the Aldermen are clothed with

What is the matter with the!

I promised last week to tell you
the reason of the enormous increase
iu spirit while beer has enormously
decreased iu the first 6 mouth's
trial of the new Saskatchewan Liquor Act. I felt sure this uewact
would prove as big a farcial play as
"Charley's Aunt" and make a cat
laugh. Tin Prohibs are sore that
they have been outwitted by the man
wdio before this new act took his
drink of beer in the bar, now gets
rolling drunk in his own koine, and
this accounts foi the decreased police court cases of drunkenness; but
the most serious side is what a
fanner's wife fsom Saskatchewan
who recently spent a few weeks
here tol 1 me, with tears in her
eyes, that since the closing of the
bars her husband buys whiskey at
tlie Government dispensaries in
flasks, which he brings home iu his

travelling first class parlour car and

sorry to say the language used is
som-thing awful, making lier home
miserable, and if the act is not al
tered she's afraid it will drive her
to drinking also, and this is whyahe
came here to see sjine of her relatives for a few weeks change and
rest. She further told tne that
conditions with her neighbor were
even worse; the husband gets his
whiskey in kegs from an outside
province because its cheaper than
the bottle stuff the dispensaries at
at home sell, and he has it smuggled amongst Iiis box of groceries.
He invites Iiis neighbors, and the
noise and the shouting can be heard
tor miles, especially about 2 o'clock
in the morning when they have the
last partidg glass and sing that
good old song, "1 won't go home

"In our Invaded departments people

manufacture of this bread were a mix-
lure of rye (lour, horse chestnuts, po-
tatoes, ele.
"The Germans look all milk, eggs,

to leave the village, even to go to lhe

"At \V., the Germans have searched

How a Windbreak Pays
Jusi as "a dollar saved is a dollar
earned," so soil moisture saved from
evaporation is equivalent to rainfall.
Studies made n few years ago iii Kansas and Nebraska showed the value
of the windbreak in preventing evaporation.
It must be admitted that windbreaks occupy space Ihai. could be
profitably devoted to agricultural
crops, and that Ihe roots of the trees
and their simile render a strip of
ground on either side of (he windbreak relatively unproductive, Vet
efficient windbreaks undoubtedly do
more good llian evil, reducing tlie
velocity of the wind and, therefore,
tiie loss of soil water from evapora-1
lion. It seems from investigations
made hy the United States forest Ber*
vice lhat the greater yields of Held
crops and apples behind the protec-'
tion of a good windbreak are enough I
to warrant every farmer iu the prain ���
states in planting windbreaks. " I

The Boys at The Front
Field  Comforts  Lessen the  Rigors of
a Winter Campaign
Two of the mosl characteristic features of Ihis  war,    as distinguishedi
from other wars,  have    been trench
warfare und  winter campaigns.
from lime immemorial, winter has
I been the great pacificist. Those J
young enough to remember their
Caesar will recall the inovltableness
with which the Roman General, al lho
lirst touch of frost, led his troops iulo snug winter quarters (Htbernln),
When Wellington held the lines j
of Torres Vedras, winter imposed an j
Involuntary truce. The great Napo*
eon met with disatser on his winter |
campaign in ItusBia.
'Today, however, the winter campaign is perhaps, from lhe point of
view of the soldier, the greatest horror of modern war. Niglu and day, in
frost aud sleet, our soldiers iu Prance,
have to mount guard. Winter Is to
them an even more implacable foe
llian the Herman.
Moreover, few civilians understand j
what a trench is. Wo talk glibly aboul'
the trenches, bul wo do nol realize,
tlnn a trench is a ditch full ot mud
and slime���-lhe most unlit of all places
for human  habitation.
Tlio trench is bad enough in summer, but in winter it surpasses anything that Dante conceived in his inferno. Tho only way to defeat this
infernal combination of winter and
trench is lo supply the soldier with
an abundance of "Field Comforts;"
socks, mittens, mufflers, wristlets and
belts to keep ids body warm: and tobacco, mouth organs, gramophones,
books, pipes and hosts of other things
lo keep Up his spirits.
Every time we hoar the winter wind
whistle in the lanes, we should think

Our citizen W. Idiens, who now
signs as "Critic" because tlie people call him one, tells us that although we say that it pays to advertise lie dosen't need to pay because the altercation between the
Prohibs and the Editor of "The
Week" has led to him coming, under the notice of fifty thousand
people as an effective businesslike
worker. See Willoughby, the
Courtenay tailor, if you want proof
of this and get one of the Prohib
circulars "Daniel Come to Judge-
men," at the same time  don't for-
Swan's Old Stand, Courtenay
get Idiens if you have any business
in his line.���Critic.
