If the income war tax, about to
be applied, did nothing more than
cause a national stock-taking, it
would serve a most useful pur
The taking of an inventory of
one's resources invariably in
duces a desire to save And a desire to save when translated, as
it very frequently is, into a determination to save, means gett
ing on with the war, as well as
happiness all around. This process; first an inventory of one's
resources, then a desire to save,
applied to every unmarried person, or widow and widower with-
ct dependent children, receiving
an income of $1,500 and over,
and to all other persons receiving an income of $3,000 and over,
will unquestionably result in a
large proportion of cases, in a
determination to save. And that
means more' general prosperity
and renewed national strength.
But a national stock-taking is
only incidental, of course, to the
chief purpose of the income war
tax, which is to provide revenue
for the prosecution of the war in
as equitable a manner as possible,
The tax is to be graduated, according to one's ability to pay.
Those who are in receipt of only
a living wage or salary will not
be called upon to pay; those enjoying the highest incomes will
be called upon to pay the greatest amounts, and the great body
of income receivers between,
will be called upon in their due
Moreover, the purpose of the
act is to distribute the burden
equitably among all classes. By
way of illustration, the farmer
will be required to add to the
value of his actual income, the
value of the home-grown products which his own family consumes. This places the farmer
on a plane with the salaried man
the value of whose services is
wholly represented in the income
received and- against which he
must charge all his living expenses'
Canada has established a war
record that is the envy of the
World. It is certain that the
Canadian people will run true to
form in answer to this latest
call of their war governwent.
Washington, March 12.—Eight
hundred thousand men are to be
called to the colors gradually during the present year, under the
second army draft, which begins
on March 29.
An announcement today by Provost Marshal General Crowder,
of the number to be called was
followed closely by an order for
the mobilization of 95,000 men
during the five-day period beginning March 29, some 15,000 of
them to be assembled under the
second draft. Eighty thousand
will be of the first draft of 687-
000 not yet summoned into service.
The War Department is prepared to supply clothing and other equipment immediately for all
the men to be called out.
An illustration of the progress
made with clothing stores lies in
the fact that every man sent
abroad is equipped with a complete new outfit before he boards
the transport.
New York, March, 12.-The
Rev. Laughlin McLean Watts, M.
A., F. R. S. E., who was chaplain of the Gordon Highlanders
and is known as the "piping parson" in the British army, was
the guest of honor and chief
speaker at the annual smoker of
the Canadian Club, in New York,
at the Hotel Biltmore last night.
The Scottish preacher thrilled the
Canadians with many stories
from the trenches both humor-
our and pathetic.
He had been asked, he said,
how long the war would last.
"Let me say," he said, "that
when I first crossed to France on
Christmas Eve, 1915, and got
with the boys I found them all
fussing among themselves as only British soldiers can fuss, because they were being kept back
from the front so long. They
feared they would not get with
the front line in time to enter
Berlin on New Year's Day. Later we changed our plans and decided to enter Berlin on May 1.
Well, we have changed our minds
many times since, but we have
not changed our hearts.
Major Watts spoke of the tol-
arance among the various religious representatives at the front.
There was no bigotry in martial
religion. "I slept with a Jesuit
priest," he continued. "We ate
together, talked together and
worked together. His Jesuitry
JiJ not taint my Presbyterianism,
nor did my Presbyterianism poison his Jesuitry. We buried all
side by side and let God sort them
out And right here let me say
that you people who are always
quarreling and fussing over religion will find that you must
change that kind of religion
when those boys come'home."
Washington, March 12.-An
other ally became a borrower
from the United States today
when the Treasury extended a
credil of $15,000,000 to the Cuban
Government to assist it in war
preparations. At the same time
Great Britain was given another
credit of $200,000,000. Both
loans were made at the new interest rate of 5 per cent.
These credits raised the total
of loans to Allied Governments
to $4,949,400,000 distributed as
follows: Great Britain, $2,520,-
000,000; France $1,440,000,000;
Italy, $550',000,000, Russia, $325,-
000,000, of which only $187,-000-
000 has been paid out; Belgium,
$93,400,000; Serbia, $6,000,0C0,
and Cuba, $15,000,000.
London, March 12.—A large
German raiding party attacking
positions of the Portuguese troops
near Laventie was caught by ma-
ceine gun fire from the front and
on both flanks and suffered heavy
casualties this morning, according to the British communication.
Numerous dead and wounded
Get mans were left in No Man's
Land when the main body took
to flight.
London, March 12.—According
to the Morning Post's Berne correspondent, preparations are being made through the German
newspapers and German press
agents for a new political move.
The correspondent says it is possible a fresh peace move is contemplated on the basis of the
status quo prior to the war in
the west and recognition of the
present status in the east.
A. French Port, March 12.—
An American steamship, formerly a German vessel, has arrived
here with her bridge smashed
and a shell hole through her funnel as a result of an encounter
with a Teuton submarine. The
steamship defended herself with
the greatest difficulty.
London, March 13.—Premier
Lloyd George, speaking in London today, said there had been
critism because the cabinet ministers had not given sufficient
prominence to the idea of a league of nations in their speeches.
The Bolshevikists had taught
them one lesson—that was that
a real league of nations did not
come by talking about it. The
critics had forgotten something
which was essential—that once
a war was begun, you had to
fight for it. They must not be
misled by mistaking phrases for
facts. He could invent phrases
about peace which even a Prussian war lord would hail with
Nobody had been so eloquent
on the subject of a league of nations, said the Premier, as the
German Emperor. His reply to
the Pope breathed the spirit of
brotherly love, but in it there
was no word about Belgium. On
the subject of a league of nations the German Emperor was
absolutely sound. He was prepared to put Germany at the head
of it. All through those protestations on the part of the Emperor breathed the spirit of domination. The dagger was wrapped
in the Sermon on the Mount. A
league of nations could only be
possible when the Entente armies had won. Only then could
a league of nations become an established fact, and the sword be
converted into a  ploughshare.
Ottawa. March 12.—Announcement is made through the Chief
Press Censor's office that the
following troops have arrived
safely in England: Koyal Flying
Corps pilot, Toronto; infantry
from British Columbia; engineers from St. John's, Quebec,
artillery, from Toronto; forestry
draft; railway construction
troops, from Hamilton, and Serbian troops.

SATURDAY, MARCH 16th, 1918
When Herbert Cosden told his
parents that he was ordered to
France, it seemed to them as if
their hearts would break, Their
boy, whom they had held with
sheltering arms; their boy, whom
they had guided in his play,
whom they had urged and praised in his work; their boy, who
had left the sheltering home a
few short years before to complete his education in the univer
sity, and who, answering the
first call for volunteers, had re
ceived his commission as lieuteri'
ant in the Officers' Reserve
Corps, was now to face the perils of the enemy-infested ocean
and of the firing "somewhere in
France." But they withheld
their tears during the days he
spent at home, and felt a thrill
of pride as they saw his manly
bearing and virile courage.
Then had come the heart-rending parting and the long days of
intolerable suspense—for he had
been permitted to tell neither
the time of his sailing nor his
destination. From a letter that,
had been returned, however,
they knew that he had sailed.
Anxious days were followed by
sleepless nights. Would he cioss
in safety? Would the dreaded
U-boats intercept his vessel?
Then, one day, a messenger
boy came with a yellow envelope.
With trembling hands they opened it, and apprehension gave
place to joy. Only one word,
but htw much it means; "Safe!"
Their son had escaped the perils
of the deep! Other perils would
follow, but for the present he
was safe.
Then the' father took the mother in his arms and said, "Let us
thank God that our boy has been
spared thus far, and remember
that he has committed himself to
the keeping of One who said, 'I
know my sheep . . . and 1 give
unto them eternal life; and they
shall never perish, neither shall
any man pluck them out of my
hand.' We will keep this message; and if the dread news should
come that he has fallen in battle,
we shall look at it assured that
if he could, he would again send
the message from the other
shore; 'SAFE.' "
The wai has at least proved
that the human race is no less
heroic, no less equal to the buffets of fate or the crises of the
soul than it ever was. All the
k lazoned deeds of the past, says
an article in the Fortnightly Review, are outshone daily. There
was Sir Richard Grenville of the
Revenge; and here is Capt. Lof-
tus Jones, of H. M. Destroyer
In the battle of Jutland ten
German ships were pouring
their fire into the Shark at short
range. Stearing gear, funnels,
superstructures were blown a-
way. Half the crew were dead;
the commander himself was severely wounded.     Another de
stroyer, the Acasta, pushed in
front of the helpless ship to
shield her and brave destruction
herself. But Loftus Jones, who
was the commodore of the division, refused any aid, and signaled the Acasta to keep out of the
way. Then a splinter of a shell
came and took off the captain's
leg above the knee; still he sat
on the shattered deck and gave
his orders and fought on. He
noticed that the flag had been
shot down and ordered that a-
nother should be run up; and
this was done, so that the shark
went under with colors flying.
When they were all in the water the few survivors pulled their
dying chief on board a raft.
"Let's have a song, boys," he
said; and they sang Nearer, My
God, to Thee, until that indomitable soul passed away.

In her life of Lord William
Beresford. Mrs. Stuart Menzies
tells the story of the generosity
of that stout-hearted nobleman.
At a regimental dinner given
in his honor shortly after he had
won the Victoria Cross he was
being carried round the table on
the shoulders of some of his old
"pals," when he espied in a corner of the room a doctor wearing
the ribbon of the Victoria Cross.
The moment he could free himself from the affectinate attentions of his friends he made a
dive for the doctor, and, hoisting
him on his shoulder, regardless
of the man's embarrassed protests, he ran round the room
with him while all present cheered lustily.
In the zenith of his pleasure
he was thinking of the other
man, and wished him to share in
the applause and cheers of the
evening. With characteristically
quick perception and sympathy
lie had guessed what memories
were stirring in the old hero's
A university president was
complaining about the worship
of wealth that has seemed to
characterize the twentieth century.
"A young man," he said,
"asked me which was the more
estimable, riches or brains.
"Brains,' said I,'of course, but
it sometimes seems as if in these
times the only way for a man to
convince people he has brains if
to get riches."

with the Telephone

Action means speed. We see it every day in the
steady increase in the number of motor cars in

All the more should the telephone be appreciated.
Nothing is more satisfactory, for if delivers the

Why Do You Eat Hen Eggs
Instead Of Duck Eggs?
It is said that more hen eggs are eaten than duck
eggs because every time the hen lays an egg she advertises the fact with a cackle, wheras the duck does
not advertise its product.
But it takes more than advertising to sell a commodity.
There must be a willingness on the. part of the
reader of the ad. to give the argument a fair chance to
convince him. s
For instance, we can fill this space every week telling you the advantage of Electric cooking and- heating
how by cooking your meals electrically you are releasing
so much coal for transportation, factories and other vital industries.
The Fuel Controller tells us that any one who uses
a pound of coal where it can be dor.e without is directly
helping the Enemy, yet here we have thousands of
Horse-power generated by the force of falling water,
ready to do any of your household work at any time and
release the coal for the use of the Allies; but do you a-
vail yourself of it as you should?
Food Experts tell us that there is far less shrinkage
in meat cooked Electrically than when any other form
of fuel is used, and you all know what that means in
these days when every pound of food means so much.
As we said abve we can proclaim these facts from
the house tops, but after that it is up to YOU, if jou can
afford to be indifferent this is just so much space wasted. ONE MAN CAM LEAD A HORSE TO THE WATER, BUT TEN MEN CAN'T MAKE HIM DRINK.
