PUBLIC NOTICE
Military Service Act, 1917.
Men 19 and 20 Years of Age.
Harvest Leave.
Leave of Absence on Ground of Extreme Hardship.
Procedure to obtain Leave cf Absence.
Men Nineteen and Twenty Years of Age.
It has come to the attention of the Government that there is a widespread
impression that young men of nineteen years, and those who became twenty
since October 13,1917, as well as those who may become nineteen from time to
time and who have been or will be csolled upon to register under the Military
Service Act, are to be immediately called to the colours.
This impression is quite incorrect. No date has yet been fixed for calling
upon such men to so report for duty, nor has the question been brought before
the Cabinet for decision. In view of the need of labour on the f,arm, it is most
unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after the harvest is
over, although of course the Government's action must be determined primarily
by the military situation.
There is no further obligation incumbent upon young men of the ages
above mentioned who have registered or who do so hereafter, until they receive
notice from the Registrars.
Harvest Leave.
Some enquiries have been received as to the possibility of granting harvest
leave to such troops as may be in the country at that time. No definite .assurance can be given on this point as advantage must be taken of ships as they
become available. On the other hand, harvest leave will be given if at all
possible.
Leave of Absence on Grounds of Extreme Hardship.
It is desired that the Regulations respecting leave of absence in cases of hardship should be widely known and fully understood. Such leave will be granted
in two cases:—(a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of tiie fact that tiie
man concerned is either tbe only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a father
killed or disabled on service or presently in service oversea, or in training for
such service, or under treatment after returning from oversew; or the only
remaining of two or more brothers capable of earning a livelihood (the other
brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently
in service overseas, or in training for overseas or under treatment after his or
their return from overseas); brothers married before 4th August, 1914, living in
separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,
in determining the fact that the man is the "only" remaining son or brother;
(b) where extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional circumstances such as
the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an
invalid father or other helpless dependents.
It is to be noted that in-all the?e cases the governing factor is not hardship,
loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is, members of
his family or those depending upon him.
Procedure to obtain leave of absence.
A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of
application have been supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each
battalion has been detailed whose duty it is to give them immediate attention.
The man concerned should on reporting to his unit state that he'desires to apply
for leave of absence on one or more of thc grounds mentioned and his application
form will then be filled out and forwarded to Militia Headquarters, Ottawa. In
the meantime, if the case appears meritorious, the man will be given provisional
leave of absence for thirty days so that he may return home and continue his
civil occupation while his case is being finally disposed of.

SUCCESS IN LIFE.
Failure is often God's own tool
for carving out some of the finest
outlines in the character of His
children. And even as to this
life, bitter and almost crushing
failures have often in them the
germs of new and quite unimag-
ined happiness. Some of us have
found it so. I would answei
that indomitable perseverance
and capacity for work stand first
—good ability I would place second, and good temper third.
With indomitable perseverance
and capacity for work a man may
overcome all difficulties, and make
good all deficiencies of education,
even though his intellect may not
be above the average. But, of
CDUrse, good brain-power, and a
natural aptitude for the business
to be followed, contribute greatly
to success. Good temper is also
exeremely important, for without
it a man is apt to throw away his
advantages, and lose the aid of
friends. Bad temper, in fact, is
a constant impediment to success,
and often a fatal one.
AUTHORITY V. ARGUMENT.
Probably there   was never a
time within living memory when
the voice of authority  was challenged by that of argument as it
is today.   Young  and old alike
read the books and newspapers,
form their opinions, and freely
express them, sometimes to the
confusion or the despair of wisei
folk.   This may not be altogether amiss in regard to the world's
affairs; but there are two spheres
in which the tendency is decidedly dangerous.   The first is in
the family, where it is not uncommon nowadays to find that
parental wishes meet with argument instead of obedience.   The
second  is  in religious   beliefs,
where the latest   "review" oi
pulpit eccentricity  is quoted in
opposition  to the  Word of God.
Parents must settle the former,
as in  the fear of Goc1,  in  theii
own way; but as to the  latter,
those who, like Timothy, eontin
ue in the things that they havi
learned   and   been   assured of,
knowing   of  whom   they   havt
learned   them   (2  Tim. 3;   14),
must—whether pastors, teachers
or parents- insist upon  the unchangeable   authority    of    thc
Word of God,  which,  like Hin
who gave it, is the same yesterday,  today and  forever.   Thert
is much force in the   following
from a noted preacher.
The enduring of hardness i;
the only cure for a society whicl
has mistaken comfort for civili
sation. I am firmly convince!
that, unless we stiffen anc
strengthen the national charac
ter with some principle mon
austere, more heroic, more spiritual than the temper which nov
prevails among us, this centurj
is likely to see the sun of thi
British nation and Empire set ir,
cloud.
Will not men look up at a rainbow, unless they are called to it
by a clap of thunder?
PERSEVERANCE.
Let no man admit to himsell
PROFESSION AND PRACTICE
We are all familiar with the
unfavorable comparisons that are
frequently drawn between Christians and those who make no pro-
fession of religion. Because a
certain Christian, perchance,
lacks some of the personal charm
of a certain worldling, this does
not justify the critic in denouncing the religion of the one and
extolling the worldliness of the
other. Even the Christian is
still a human being, and subject
to various idiosyncrasies. Given
the same moods and the same idiosyncrasies in the worldling
would he be any more "charm
ing" than the othei? Men do
not despise gold as a metal because sovereigns contain alloy.
There are personal characteristics in men which are irrespective of any Christian profession.
We need, therefore, to distinguish clearly between what is
the essential feature of the Christian and the worldly character
respectively. At the same time
it is encumbent upon the child
of God to walk worthy of his vocation and, by grace, to avoid
all inconsistency that would give
occasion for the enemy to blaspheme.

It is now illegal to deal wholesale in flour, bran, shorts or any
feeds made from wheat or grai is
or products of wheat, or grains,
or hay nr straw, without first
having obtained a license from
the Canada Food Board.
RESTAURANT LICENSES REQUIRED.
It will be illegal to operate a public eating place without a license
from the Canada Food Board.
The time has been extended from
June 1st. to July 1st,, because of
the rush of applications which
were more than could be dealt
with in time by the Board's office
sraff.
No person may manufacture
ice-cream, candy, cake, crackers,
biscuits, pastry, confectionery,
ice-cream cones or chewing gum,
without first obtaining a license
from the Canada Food Board, on

POLICE    ARE    ENFORCING
FOOD LAWS.
All over Canada municipal police authorities are enforcing the
food regulations in a firm, vigorous manner. They are also enforcing the anti-loafing law.
There has been a great improvement on the streets of most of
the Canadian cities since this
law was passed. Fines of $100
and costs have been imposed in
Calgary, Montreal, Victoria,
Saskatoon, Toronto, Port Arthur
Ottawa, Regina, Stratford, and
many other points report cases
of fines and imprisonment.
If IS UP TO TOWNSPEOPLE.
The able-bodied young men of
Canada are at the front or in
training. The farmers have
done their best and the crop is
in the ground. The harvest is
up to the townspeople. Unless
they organize to help, the people
of this country will have to tighten their belts next winter. There
is no doubt about it.
Canadian farmers are respond
ing magnificently to the call for
increased production, despite the
many other calls that have been
heard and answered. The world
is at the greatest crisis in its history and, the farmers of Canada
have realized the fact and shown
the true Canadian spirit. It remains now for the people of the
towns and cities to organize and
SUGAR FOR CANNING.
Every effort is being made to
provide sufficient supplies of sugar for the canning season. The
Canada Food Board says that
while restrictions in the consumption of sugar in given ways is
necessary and must be strictly
enforced, still by the present arrangements there will be plenty
of sugar for canning purposes.
Every effort should, therefore,
be made to preserve fruit and
vegetables to the utmost permitted by increased production.

BOYS'   SUIT
SPECIALISTS
We ask you to put our claim to the test, as we feel sure we can
fit most of the boys in town with a suit they will justly be proud in.
Coppley Noyes & Randall, of Hamilton, one of the best Houses in
Canada for "Good Goods" has just delivered our second shipment of
the swellest range of " Boys' Nifty Suits " it has ever been out-
pleasure to open, hence our confidence in our claim.
This shipment contains about one thousand dollars' worth of
Boys' Special Suits, and every suit has an individuality all to itself
for the "little man" who will wear it, and which will make him like
his Dad. •
For Big Boys we have a choice of suits that will leave nothing
to be desired; the cloths are excellent, the style up Ihe minute, and
you will find the price moderate compared with the quality. The
Home of Boys' Clothes! Yes, that is what we are after, and which
we intend to be known in the future, and, if the goods mean anything, we are there already.
We invite every boy in town to come in and see our " New
Line and get acquainted, as he is sure to come in the end—if he
wants smart up-to-date Clothes.
SPECIAL   UNES
Ladies' House Dresses
We have a smart showing of New Lines in House Dresses. We
think it is the best assortment we have been able to get for some
time and would ask your inspection.
White Shoes
We have a full line of White Shoes for ladies, girls, boys and
children, and have had constantly to reorder some sizes. When
in need of shoes for summer, we ask your inspection of THE
KAUFMAN BRAND, which we consider one of the best on the
market today. Should we be out of your size, we can get in four
days.
Trunks and Suitcases
Our stock of these is very complete, with such an assortment
that you will have no difficulty in making a good choice.
FRESH GROUND COFFEE.
Have you tried our fresh ground coffee yet ? We have installed
a new " Hobart" electric Coffee Grinder, the best made, and can
grind your coffee to suit your taste—coarse medium, fine or pul-
uerized. It will be a pleasant surprise to you to find the great
difference in flavor between fresh ground coffee and coffee that has
probably been ground from one to six months before. Prices are
the same as ever for the present, at 35c, 40c, 45c and 50c per lb.
