which ils people proudly declare
to be the grandest province in the

have been witnessing the spectacle for months past of thousands of people men. women and

an enormous scale brought into
operation to avert a fearful calamity; wholesale starvation ano

Is there anything humiliating
in this spectacle? We have heard
of famines in India.     How   we
have pitied that  most   unhappy]
country, whore heaven and earth
conspire at times to rob the people
of their daily bread!     But  what

THEiRE ARE  NOT  ENOUGH
UNION  JACKS  IN  CANADA
In other countries on days of rejoicing or National Anniversaries flags
are unfurled from almost every
housetop or window.
Canadians are just as loyal, but unfortunately they find themselves
short of flags.
In almost every city in Canada there
is a movement on foot now to see
that the old Flag is floating from
every Canadian home.
The newspapers have been asked
to assist in the distribution.
Slj? Jfllattber has agreed to undertake the distribution in this district
and our readers can secure a real
good Union Jack, in fast colors,
size 5ft. by 3ft., for only
- $1.10
At this price there is no reason
why every home in the district
should not have a Union Jack floating on all occasions in future.
