The Work
Running a Sewing Machine is one of the most
arduous' clasees of work a "woman attempts. It
requires the utmost concentration to the work of
sewing in addition to the work of peddaling. This
is so laborious when long continued, as to completely prostrate the ordinary person
The little Electric Motor can be instantly attached
to any kind of sewing machine, old or new, no tools
or screws required.   The cost of operating motor
is less than one cent per hour

the appreciation of the audit uce

was i'hen the lights Went out for a

Soldiers   In   Trenches   Seek   Information About Possibilities of This
A London correspondent of Hie
Free Press writes: "One resull of
tiie fraternizing in the trenches of
Canadian soldiers with those of
France and Belgium, is illustrated
in letters received at Hie Canadian offices In London. Large numbers of
French and Belgium soldiers appear
to have had their Interest In the
Dominion excited to the extent of
writing to London tor literature descriptive of Its opportunities and
activities. That iheir action lias
been prompted by conversations

on ihe wheat growing areas of the
prairie provinces; a third nboul. the
mining districts of Ontario, and oihers
about lumbering, fishing and stock-
raising. It does noi require much insight to guess that some ardent. British Columbian has discoursed about
the advantages of his province, and
that Hie men from .Manitoba und Ontario have been no less active in im*
��� parting Information. Frequently
Canadians themselves write asking
for books io be forwarded to a French
or Belgian soldier. On Ihe other
hand, some of the Canadians in England lo whom the writer has spoken,
having looked on this island land and
found it good, express the determination to establish themselves in this
coiinlry after the war. Similarly, it
is lo be expected that some Canadians will ilml attractions on Hie oilier

a home in tlm land in which ihey have
fought so valiantly. That, there will

Had Thrilling Experience
Newfoundlanders   at   Dardanelles
"We went    Into the   trenches on
Sunday night and came out again on
Monday night," writes a   Newfound*
lander from the Dardanelles,
"Just before we were supposed to
leave, the Turk:; tried to attack the
rutbl of the line, bul were driven back
s.tth heavy losses. We had to stand
to and -were in Hie bombardment. I
can tell ymi It wns very exciting for
six hours or more. What with shells
bursting and the rapid firing of rifles
one had no time tu think of anything.
However, it was a nice, llttlo christ-
enlng, ami now when it really comes
lu us we won't mind it. Harold Mitchell has been made a sergeant, lie
got It for good wurk under fire the
first time v.c went into the trenches.
He nnd 15 men wore detailed to go
out. after dark and dig a new trench.
They just reached the place when
Hie Turks discovered Ihem and they
opened lire, Harold ordered his men
to lie down and consequently saved
them all. They were out five hours,
but got the trench completed."

Editor Review.
Sin���Johnny Canuck's letter,
lu-'ll find, is like shooting dread-
naughts with a squirrel gun. As
Holmes said once, "With tlie rim
of creation for a crowbar, you
couldn't pry the idea out of their
heads that England isn't the whole
universe." The mere fact that the
Scotch and Irish run their country
is a little trifle. Canada is not
'for the Canadians." Remittance
men have bought the blooming
country many times over, logically
its theirs. Johnny will learn also
that people who express themselves
frankly, if insultingly, about the
country thats weary of them, do
not ever wish frank retorts. J.
t an iek ought to forgive tlie youth
every day sees more men employed, but
he (has not like to sec about 90 per cent
ol the fiirin produce trade controlled   by
