On the authority of the President of the American Telephone  Co. there, are 2,000,000 idle workmen in the United States today. Labor leaders contend that his figures are too low and  that there are at least 3,000,000 men idle. Suppose we split  the difference, and make it 2,500,000. Allowing them an average earning capacity of $2.00 per day the army of unemployed men is costing us $5,000,000 per day.  $5,000,000 is only the direct loss in wages earned;-the indirect loss, resulting from the withdrawal of that amount of  money from circulation and the, consumption of savings probably amounts to half as much, so that we may safely estimate  the loss from unemployment to aggregate close on $7,500,000.  In, other words our army'of unemployed is costing us just as  much as Great Britain's war is costing her.  Unemployed workmen are' the most expensive luxury a state  :��������� nation can indulge in.���������Sumas Advocate.  upon wheh to' base hopes for the, future than we had, even five  years ago, and very much more still than we.had ten years ago?  Doubtless some people have made: mistakes. .. We are not  speaking of politics now, but of the acts of private citizens. Vet  in what community shall we find a people noiw of whom make  mistakes?  Surely in view of these things we have a safe and secure basis  for optimism. Therefore, we are optimistic-"We realize that  conditions at present are abnormal. They could not be^other-  wise. The war engrosses our thoughts. If the peace had not  been broken we would.be thinking.of the results that must flow.  from the opening of the canal, of the certain influx of/people  who will come to take advantage of'the opening of new areas  of the growth of the Prairie country, of what has been learned  about the markets for our timber, of the reputation of the Province in acquiring by reason of its many.attractions. We would  think of these things and take courage from them. But we  think only of the war, we ought also to think of what will follow  the restoration of peace, when there is' every reason to believe  all Canada, and especially British Columbia, will receive a remarkable impetus toward prosperity. Let each one of us take  a good grip on himself and face the future with, renewed confidence. .      '  When a ship has been caught in a storm; and the captain orders all .passengers below until the gale, has been weathered,  what would we think of the man who would endeavor to scuttle  the vessel?

Brundage  Painter and Decorator  or  CITY AND COUNTRY LABOK  The unemployment problem is still existent in the cities and  the scarcity of labor is still complained of in many of the rural  districts.    The question is how can the one be reconciled with  the- other, and the one brought to supply what the other needs  and the other to take what the one possesses in excess. After  the war there may be a rush of immigration; but that cannot  be for a year at least.    We must, therefore, make the best of the  situation and try to get along with what we have. A Toronto  paper has been publishing letters from a number of men who  .  have accepted positions on farms.    They all, without exception  speak m good terms of their experience. Tlie pav is not lavish  but the food is good and abundant, the bed clean and the life  in the open brings a keen appetite for meals and a pleasant  - desire for sound refreshing sleep.    One man writes:   "I have  tramped miles and miles after deer and dropped too exhausted  to eat or sleep.   -Here when I'm hungry I have a good meal to  go to and when I'm tired there is a nice clean bed waiting  You know how I hated to break from the city, but now Mary  and I are both glad we came. You should see her with her  skirt tucked up bustling to and from the barns. It's the pastoral  life for us all right.    Men who wander cities idle and hungry  while there are opportunities like this offering are crazy."  Perhaps readers of this may think the writer' of the foregoing  has hit upon a soft spot.    It is more than likely however  that  he. is possessed of that Mark Tapleyism that should accompany  all desires for work.    That hopefulness which leads to success  and, at this period of time, begets some fulfilment of-the scriptural injunction to bear one another's burdens. Every man, yes  and every woman who goes to work in this strain of spirit,' and  to all it is possible, is helping to take the handicap off somebody else's shoulders and is contributing to the welfare alike  of his own country and the empire.    He is uplifting his fellow-  man, he is assisting in the clothing and feeding of his countrv-  men, map be his townsmen at the front, and he is setting an  example that cannot be too extensively followed. He is doing  his share towards reconciling the.wants of the city with the  needs of the counry.    He is also probably prolonging his own  life as well as making matters easier for others. Above all he  is proving himself a true patriot in earnestly doing his best to  promote  production.  SHATTERED  Within the last few days the British Admiralty has issued  two announcements which, taken together, have deep significance. The first of these was that it had good reason to believe  that German submarine "U 29," which recently destroyed fivo  British vessels in the region of the Scilly Isles, had been sunk  with all on board.. The second was that the German submarine '  attempt to blockade the British Isles was being shattered and  that it soon would be abandoned.

Pr������u:lical work  at  practical   prices  SHASON FOIt PRESERVING EGGS  British Columbia has enjoyed a period of very remarkable  prosperity. What was the cause of it? The superficial reason  was the great activity in public works., Federal, Provincial and  municipal, the enterprise of private individuals, who invested  freely in buildings and other improvements, and the activity of  the real estate market. But these, causes were superficial only  Back of them was the great basal fact that British Columbia  is a country of marvellous natural wealth, occupies an important geographical position, and possesses on the whole an unrivalled climate. We have all these things now in just as full  measure as we had five years ago, the only difference is that we  ourselves knew more about them and so does the world at large  To the possesson of these invaluable assets we have added a  greater knowledge of them. Those of us, who were engaged  in making known the possibilities of this Province ten or fifteen  years ago, can appreciate better, perhaps, than anyone else  what a great gain this is.  But we have gained something more than that.  We have  hundreds of miles of new railway openings opening up great  resourceful  areas.    We have hundred  of miles  of high-class  highways everywhere throughout the southern two-thirds of the  Province. Our rivers are crossed by substantial bridges. Our harbors have been improved, and great projects for the enlargement of. our shipping facilities are either completed or are well  under way.    The Panama Canal has been opened for traffic  Great markets for our products are being discovered, with every  prospect of a rapid demand for our timber, our fish and our  minerals.    We have made unprecedented progress.in works of  preparation, and are in the., midst of what is the greatest period  of this kind in the history of this or any other country  In addition to these things that are true of many parts of 'the Province, we have in Victoria done everything.-necessary to make  it an ideal residental city fine-streets, abundance of .light, plenty  of water and other necessary adjuncts. Will anyone deny" these  things? Is it not perfectly true that we have very much more  The following letter from Mr. J.  R. Terry, Department of Agriculture  Victoria, speaks for itself:  I am instructed by the 'Executive  of the B.  C. Poultry Association to  respectfully  draw  yoiir  readers'  attention to the fact that the  season  for preserving eggs is now-here. The  present  low   price   of     eggs     offers  householders a splendid opportunity  to secure good reliable eggs for this  purpose.      In packing the eggs the  housewife. keeps down the expenses  and   also   aids   in     supporting     the  poultry industry at a time'when conditions are far    from"   satisfactory.  When buying, the purchaser should  insist on getting fresh, infertile eggs  Water-glass is the best medium for  preservation.  Wooden    or    earthenware receptacles are used to     hold  the eggs and liquid and care should  be   taken   to   see   that   the   former  are clean anl free from odors. Directions as to use of water-glass are  given with the liquid. Cracked or dirty eggs should not be packed. When  taken   out   of   the   preservative   the  eggs should be pricked with a needle  before   being   used.  In conclusion, permit me to mention that, owing to the high cost of  poultry feed stuffs, large numbers of  fowls are being killed .-in the province. Tlie number of chicks raised  this year will be materially curtailed. Both these facts point to the  possibility of a more than usual  scarcity of eggs "next winter, hence  the advice to preserve eggs now,  when they are'at their "cheapest.  v  Might rise with the'trhimph-tide!  You have paid the price of their glory  As a soldier would wish you to do  Ay! but my lad that I've longed for  My heart's just breaking for you!

The war is costing England $7,000,000 a'day. Some money,  but much of that money is being spent right in Great Britain,  lor the support of'the wives and.families of the men at the  front and every factory in the country'is working over time.  There are no idle men in Great, Britain today.  On the authority of (.he President of the American Telephone  Co. there are 2,000,000 idle workmen in the United States today. Labor leaders contend that his figures are too low and  that there are. at least 3,000,000 men idle. Suppose we split  the difference, and make it 2,500,000. Allowing them an' average earning capacity of $2.00 per day the army of unemployed men is costing us $5,000,000 per day.  $5,000,000 is only the direct loss in wages earned, the indirect loss, resulting from the withdrawal of that amount of  money from circulation and the consumption of savings probably amounts to half as much, so.that we may safely estimate  the loss from unemployment to aggregate close on $7,500,000.  In other words our army of unemployed is costing us just as  much as Great Britain's war is costing her.  Unemployed workmen are the most expensive luxury a state  or nation can indulge in.���������Sumas Advocate.  upon when to base hopes for the-future than we had even five  years ago, and very much more still than we had ten years ago?  Doubtless some people have made-.; mistakes. .. ;We are hot  speaking of politics now, but of the acts of private citizens. Yet  in what community shall we find a people, noil-} of whom make  mistakes?  Surely in view of these things we have a safe and secure basis  for optimism. Therefore, we are' optimistic.: We realize that  conditions at present are abnormal. They could not be otherwise. The war engrosses our thoughts. ��������� If the peace had not  been broken we would be thinking rbf ,the results that must flow  from the opening of the canal, of the certain influx������������������ of, people  who will, come tp take advantage of' the opening of new areas  of the growth of the Prairie country, of what has been learned  about the markets for our timber, of the reputation of the Province in acquiring by reason of its many attractions. We would  think of these things and take courage from them. But we  think only of.the war, we ought also to think of what will follow  the restoration of peace, when there is every reason to believe  all Canada, and especially British Columbia, will receive a remarkable impetus toward prosperity. Let each one of us take  a good grip on himself and face the future with renewed confidence.  When a ship has been caught in a storm, and the captain orders all passengers below until the gale has been weathered,  what would we think of the man who would endeavor to scuttle  the vessel? The pesimist, the prophet of evil, and all such people are unconsciously no doubt, scuttling the ship of prosperity  ���������Colonist.

Brundage  Painter and Decorator  SEASON FOll PIIMSKKVING EGGS  CITY ASI) COUNTRY LAUOft  The unemployment problem is still existent in the cities and  the scarcity of labor is still complained'of in many of the rural  districts.    The question is how can the one be reconciled with  the Other, and the one brought to supply what the other needs  and the other to take what the one possesses in excess. After  the war there may be a rush of immigration, but that cannot  be for a year at least.    We must, therefore, make the best of the  situation and try to get along with what we have. A Toronto  paper has been publishing letters from a number of men who  have accepted positions on farms  speak in good terms of their experience'! The pav is" notTavish'  fresent i������w *5rice, ot'.���������eggs   ^J8  but the food is good and abundant, the bed clean and the life  houaeholders a splendld opportunity  in the open brings a keen appetite for meals and a pleasant  ��������� desire for sound refreshing sleep.    One man writes:   "I have  tramped miles and miles after deer and dropped too exhausted  to eat or sleep.   -Here when I'm hungry I have a good meal to  go to and when I'm tired there is a nice clean bed waiting.  You know how I hated to break from the city, but now Mary  and I are both glad we came. You should see her with her  skirt tucked up bustling to and from the barns. It's the pastoral  life for us all right.    Men who wander cities idle and hungry  while there are opportunities like this offering are crazy."  Perhaps readers of this may think the writer' of the foregoing  has hit upon a soft spot.    It is more than likely however, that  he is possessed of that Mark Tapleyism that should accompany  all desires for work.    That hopefulness which leads to success  and, at this period of time, begets some fulfilment of-the scriptural injunction to bear one another's burdens. Every man, yes  and every woman who goes to work in this strain of spirit, and  to all if is possible, is helping to take the handicap off somebody else's shoulders and is contributing to the welfare alike  of his own country and the empire. He is uplifting his fellow-  man, he is assisting in the clothing and feeding of his countrymen, map be his townsmen at the front, and he is setting an  example that cannot be too extensively followed. He is doing  his share towards reconciling the wants of the city with the  needs of the counry. He is also probably prolonging his own  life as well as making matters easier for others. Above all he  is proving himself a true patriot in earnestly doing his best to  promote production.  SHATTERED  Within the last few days the British Admiralty has issued  two announcements which, taken together, have dee].) significance. The first of these was that it had good reason to believe  that German submarine "U 29,". which recently destroyed iivc \  British vessels in the region of the Scilly Isles, had been sunk  with all on board.. The second was that the German submarine  attempt to blockade the British Isles was being shattered and  that it soon would be abandoned.  The following letter from Mr. J.  R. Terry, Department of Agriculture  Victoria, speaks for itself:  I am instructed by the Executive,  of the B.  C. Poultry Association to  respectfully  draw your  readers'   attention  to  the  fact that the season  They all, without exception J f0* Preserving eggs'is now-here.

In packing the eggs the  housewife keeps down the expenses  and also aids in supporting the  poultry industry at a time when conditions are far from' satisfactory.  When buying, the purchaser should  insist on getting fresh, infertile eggs  Water-glass is the best medium for  preservation. Wooden or earthenware receptacles are used to hold  the eggs and liquid and care should  be taken to see that the former  are clean anl free from odors. Directions as to use-of water-glass are  given with the liquid. Cracked or dirty eggs should not be packed. When  taken out of the preservative the  eggs should be pricked with a needle  before   being   used.  In conclusion, permit me to mention that, owing to the high cost of  poultry feed stuffs, large numbers of  fowls are being killed -in the province. The number of chicks raised  this year will be materially curtailed. Both these facts point to the  possibility of a more than usual  scarcity of eggs "next winter, hence  the advice to preserve eggs now,  when they are at their cheapest.

Mission City  British Columbia has. enjoyed a period of very remarkable  prosperity. What was the cause of it? The superficial reason  was the great activity in public works., Federal, Provincial and  municipal, the enterprise of private individuals, who invested  freely in buildings and other improvements, and the activity of  the real estate market. But these causes were superficial only  Back of them was the great basal fact that British Columbia  is a country of marvellous natural wealth, occupies an important geographical position, and possesses on the whole an unrivalled climate. We have all these things now in just as full  measure as we had five years ago, the only difference is that we  ourselves knew more about them and so does the world at large  To the possesson of these invaluable. assets we have added a  greater knowledge of them. Those of us, who were engaged  in making known the possibilities of this Province ten or fifteen  years ago, can appreciate better, perhaps, than anyone else  what a great gain this is.  But we have gained something more than  that.  We  have  hundreds of miles of new railway openings opening up great  resourceful areas.    We have hundred  of miles of high-class  highways everywhere throughout the southern two-thirds of the  Province. Our rivers are crossed by substantial bridges. Our harbors have been improved, and great projects for the enlargement of our shipping facilities are either completed or are well  under way.    The Panama Canal has been  opened for traffic.  Great markets for our products are being discovered, with every  prospect of a rapid demand for our timber, our fish and our  minerals.    We have made unprecedented progress in works of  preparation, and are in the midst of what is the greatest period  of this kind in the history of this or any other country. In addition to these things that are true of many parts of the Province, we have in Victoria done everything, necessary to make  it an ideal residental city fine streets, abundance of light, plenty  of water and other necessary adjuncts. Will anyone deny these  things? Is it not perfectly true that we have very much more  The Cry of the Broken-Hearted  When the Day of Battle is ended,  And the cruel suspense is past,  When the hours of anguished waiting  Are over, for all, at last,  Then those who  are reunited  Will offer, their praise to God���������  But the lad I have waited and longed  for,  Lies, voiceless, under the sod.
