Some single men are given to understand by the-coroporatlbn that employs them that 'their country needs  them' therefore the conclusion arrived at is that the corporation can get  along without them. Why single out  , the single men? Why single, out any  man at all?

He had. the bearing of a veteran  and was. of the proper age. Instinctively the younger man had thought of  him as .one who had fought on one  side ^or the other in the Civil War.  The younger man was a keen student  of American history, and .never neglected ' an opportunity to get firsthand information from a veteran.  Under his guidance,, the conversation came round to the Peftinsular  campaign. The tactics of the generals and their, personalities were discussed. At first the older man merely answered questions, but.later' he  took the lead in the conversation him  self. The knowledge of the.history  of the war that he showed .was remarkable. He quoted from the memoirs of the'commanders. He criticized the conclusions:, of historians.  He could speak with knowledge of  every campaign, and almost every  battle. ,  - Finally he looked at his watch. "I  can. spare you only a- few. moments  longer," he said. "I have an engagement, arid.I make it "a rule, not to be  late.     ���������'  The younger man . expressed his  gratitude for the brilliant talk he  had listened to. .Then he said:  '|You have not told me of. your  own part in the war. What was your  regiment. What rank did you'hold?  What battles did you see?  He regretted the questions the instant they were out of his mouth, for  the older man's face grew suddenly  sad. He answered almost in a whisper:  "I took no part in it at all.    It has  been my grief for fifty years.-1 ought  to have gone.    I was of an age to go  Men about, me went, but I���������I stayed  away.    I was not a coward; it was  because they said 1 was too rich to go  I had money arid have it still.

' So wholesome, .in. fact, has  been Sir Robert's example that English newspapers have urged Premier.  Asquith to follow it. Thus Canada  instead of being' looked  upon as a  nation afflicted with political bandits  and highwaymen, has been started on  a fair road to the.goal where it will  be regarded by other nations as a  modle of political decency."

In  other lines the market, was distinctly  up to standard and. trading was unusually brisk, considering the time  of year.  The  failure  of  the  Valley  stockmen to ship meat this week is ascribed partially to the harvesting operations  on  the  farms and  also  to  the warm weather.      These are the  dog days when butchers are averse  to hanging fresh meat, in the open  for any length of time and what little  meat   is   coming   in;   from   up-rivcf  points just now is hustlel to the re--  frige'rators at once.  .Bartlett pears from.Chilliwalk were  the  new  features  in  the  fruit lino  and the twenty-five boxes which  a-  dcirned the fruit section at nine o'clock had practically disappeared inside  of  an   hour  at. prices   ranging  from 60������ to 750.    There was a' plentiful supply of apples and plums and  in addition to the wholesale lots presided over by the market clerk, nearly every individual vendor    on    tho.  market had a few boxes of plum? or  apples to dispose of.
