thut His Honor Judge Wilson did.
This case, however, materially differs
from that of Oddum Singh vs. Staples

evidence of the witnesses Davis and
Crosby was clear and distinct as to
the terms of hiring. It was a positive
statement made from memory nor
were they In the slightest degree
shaken iu cross-examination. In the
case before me I believe that both the
plaintiff and Mr. Elmore Staples were
telling what they believed to be the
truth. Neither one was shaken In
the slightest degree in cross-examination. Mr. Staples, however, says very

This is not charity, this thing. Food
Control. It is war- The Allies have
a right to demand it. They have a
right to resent the offer of only what j
Is "left over." Those who are fight- j
ing a common buttle for civilization
and common protection have a higher
claim than Lazarus had to only tin j
"crumbs that felt from the rich-man's
table." The Canadian people must
get the right ethics of wartime Pood
Control—K. B. Roberts in "Food Control or Famine."

have been received by the Mayor.

"The wilful waste of any food or I
food products where such  waste results from carelessness, or from the ;
manner of storage thereof, or is due
to any other avoidable cause, Is here,
by  prohibited.    It shall  be  the duty
of each municipality in Canada to en-1
force this regulation within its municipal limits."
That this Ordcr-in-Council  applies
nol  only  to  stores,  warehouses  und
similar premises Is evident by the in-;
elusion of the  words "private residence" In  the regulations.
Further, the Canada Food Board i>-:

Portugal In 1808 and 1801). Lisbon
was the only great port fn Europe to
which Britain had free access and in
1810 and 1811 Wellington was able to
hold on there only because of the defensive lines at Torres Vfilr.i*. which
protected the seaport.
II took the British five years to
flghl tlieir way across Spain nnd get
Into Prance. As lute as in 1811' Napoleon was certain of victory over all
Ills enemies. His soldiers still believed that he was unconquerable. Sidney Smith was not ashnmed to say
publicly In 1807 that Britain could not
win, that the blockade wr.s iisqUsb,
and Ihat a French army would probably land in Rnglnnd, Eight years
were required to prove hlni a false
prophet but Britain fought on and won
lu 1814 and 1815.
The first blow which struck down
Napoleon's pride came from his own
ally Russia. He made Russia suffer
bitterly by going to Moscow. Bul he
could not hold his conquest, When
Russia struck, others plucked up
courage to strike too. Prussia rose on
his retreating armies. So did Austria.
Even with this menace he would not
make peace when he might still have
retained both his throne and the old
frontiers of France. At last, all Europe saw that Its only safety was his
complete downfall nnd refused to
treat with him.

our fathers went through darker

faced. They made one great mistake.

so much the actual scarcity of foodstuffs as their wish to be revenged,

Lord Rhondda Cables:
"We Cannot Achieve Victory Without Food."
" Canada Food Board,
" Ottawa
" In these stern days it is inspiring to learn that Canada is tackling the
food problem with redoubled energy. The terrific pressure on our
military front makes it all the more imperative that those behind the
line should strain every nerve to defeat the enemy's avowed object of
destroying the British Empire.
"Germany hoped first to starve the Old Country by the submarine
campaign and then to smash her land forces. She has failed to starve
us and she will fail to smash us but we cannot achieve victory without
food. Then .-ever was st time when it was more needed.
"The Canadian farmer and the Canadian farmhand now have the
opportunity to make an effective reply to the enemy's present
onslaughts by bending their undivided energies to the increased
production of those food supplies for which we depend to such vital
extent upon your great Dominion."
London, April 10th
The Prime Miniiter of Canada, in
a call to Greater Food Production,
says: "The crieit Is grave and urgent
beyond possibility of exaggeration."
Our Allies are depending upon
Canada to produce this year more
cereals—especially Spring Wheat—and
more meat—especially Pork.
The world lhortage will inevitably
continue for yeara after the war—with
this continent the nearest source of
supply for the 200,000,000 persons in
Europe who will be clamoring for frod.
(Signed)      "RHONDDA"

go on the farms are helping to feed
themselves by growing their own vegetables, so that the farmers may grow

The food crisis calls for the utmost

In connection wit ha report emanating from Vancouver regnrdlng the
rates of Fie Insurance applicable
In British Columbia It wns pointed
out that tne rates here were considered higher than in the F.tist.
Mr. F. Clement Brown. Insurance
expert for the B. C, Manufacturers'
Association addressing its members
recently delivered some criticism
against the rates In effect in B. C.
Despite the fact that this province
had an envlnble flrt record nnd that
the climate is mild and moist and
ideal In comparison with the East,
yet insurance wns 15 to 20 per cent
Another outstanding fnel Is that
fire insurance rates today In Canada
and tlie United States are not based
on the merits of the risk, but are bT
ed also on consideration of expediency. In other words the politics of
fire insurance piny ns large a part
and sometimes, alas, n larger part
than tbe merits or demerits of the
fire hazards themselves.
He advised that it was a great mistake to reduce the tire fighting force
or equipment below the minimum ot
safety. All the cities should aim to
have tbe best fire protection they
can secure leaving the matter of hotter rates to be worked out later,
"There is no doubt that In due
course the government will come to
see tho i dvisiblllty of re-creating t

from shell hole to shell hole, or
crawling on his stomach, until his
goal is reached, and, thoroughly ex-[•*■£■
batisted, he hands over bis precious,
mud-stained, and sometimes bloodstained, missive.
It Is ln these circumstances that
the runner often wins recognition for
gallantry, and well-deserved medal
ribbons come his way.
For Bilious
Tiiat heavy headadi •, torpid
liver, sick stomach, bitter taste
in mouth, furred tongue, dull
eyes and muddy skin, all come
from a poor supply of bile.
TJjese unhealthy conditions are
promptly corrected by
which stimulate the liver,
regulate the flow of bile,
sweeten the stomach, and
renew healthy bowel action.
A household remedy approved bysixty years of public service.   For every-day
Bodge Brothers
Where they so disposed, Dodge  Brothers could not lower thc quality
of this car.
They are no longer free agents, because public opinion has established
a standard for everything bearing their name.
They dare not fall below tbe high estimate that has been formed of
them as motor car manufacturers.
The American people are quick to detect deterioration.
And what is much more Important—they expect the constant improvement of any product in which they repose complete confidence
They would be slower to forgive a fault ln any cur Dodge Brothers
might build, than In one they esteemed less highly.
Kvery dealer in Dodge Brothers cars knows thut tin* customers who
come to blm, come with tbe highest possible expectations.
lie knows thut the thing he is selling primarily Is Dodge Brothers
word and tlieir good name.
'He knows that he Ih not merely dealing tn motor curs, but acting as
custodian for Dodge Brothers reputation.
Naturally, tills knowledge of what is expected by the buyer breeds a
di ep sense uf res)K>nsibillty.
In lhe works, It has the effect of inspiring Dodge Brothers tu a con*
itaiil personal oversight eif all Ihe manufacturing operations.
The entlro institutleui is honestly permeated with the Idon thnt -inal-
iiy and performance nre parameiunt and all important.
Aud so, a .standard which was naturally high, lias been made  higher
still, by the bestowal of complete confidence em tho iiartofthe public,
li is a mutual contract which offers con st ant Inspiration to the manufacturer and constant Insurance to tlie e'tistomer.
With the Interests of buyer and seller ho closely knit together, the result, everywhere Is what might have been exported,
It Is Impossible for Dodge Brothers, with nil their gro&t facilities  to
build enough motor cars to satisfy the public. ,   «

The one thing a runner seldom does
at the front Is to run.
Ho walks.
Very often he crawls.
On the messages which tbe runner
carries frequently depend the entire
success of an operation and the lives
of many officers and men.
Both in billets and in trenches, the
runner Is excused all other duty.
In view of the speed with which he
is supposed to travel, and the long
distances he is often asked to cover,
the runner travels light. In billets
he moves about in loose dress, without belt or sldearm. In tbe trenches
he enrries a rifle and a bandolier, but
no equipment.
An accomplishment they have to
acquire is the faculty of penetrating,
at any hour of the day or night, Into
the most jealously guarded billet or
dug-out, waking an officer from the
deepest sleep, and paying no attention

Vast Issues Depend Upon

Cheer Up end Thanh God for the Y.M.C.A.
V'Y to picture youMli in the muddy cold trenches after
exciting days and long nights of mortal danger and intense nervous strain. Hushing "whiz-bangs" and scream-
"coal boxes" are no respecters of persons. You arc hit!
But despite shock and pain you still can face thc long weary
trudge back to dressing station. Weary, overwrought and depressed, you are prey to wild imagining: :>f that other coming
ordeal with the surgeon, There are other "walking wounded,"
too!   You must wait, wait, wait.   And then—
Up comes a cheery Y.M.C.A. man, the ever-present "big brother"
to the soldier, with words of manly encouragement. Close beside the dressing station the good generous folks at home have
enabled him to set up a canteen. He hands you biscuits, and
chocolate or coffee.

"In thousands of cases," writes an officer, "it was thai first hot
cup of coffee that dragged the man back to life and sanity."
The tremendous helpfulness of the Y.M.C.A. as an aiil lo the
"morale," or fighting spirit, of the soldiers is everywhere
praised. No wonder the Germans make every effort to smash
the Y.M.C.A. huts out of existence. •
The Y.M.C.A. is everywhere. You first met the helpful,
manly Y.M.C.A. worker in camp, then nn train and bout, at
camp iu England and in France, close to thc firing line. Often
be risks his life to reach you in the trenches. He has won the
warmest praise from military authorities, statesmen—the King!
Have you a precious boy at the front? You cannot be "over
there" to guide bim away from fierce temptations of camp and
city. You cannot comfort him in his supreme hour of trial.
Your parcels to him are necessarily few. But the Y.M.C.A.,
thank God, is "over there," going where you cannot go—doing
thc very things you long to do—doing it for you and for him.
Will you help? This vast organization of helpfulness needs at
