They  v.-ero  taken  on  the  battle  field and  | show the men following the barrage,  f going  -over the- top," storming uu  Vimy Ridge,    in  trench  life, at the  base, in tho hospitals and in the other  /situations of life at the front. Some  orthe photographers engaged in taking these pictures  were  killed,    for  j they   were     (lirecLly   under   fire   but  j {\\ey succeeded in taking some wou-  j deriul pictures. One can see the in- j  j tense look on the faces of the Qaii-  jadians in the charge and the actual  1 bunting of shells, in the near vicin-  j.ity of the photographers.

How wonderfully wrong things are these days! ! ! , ;  The editor of this paper is not out to reform any one of  these wrongs.    Hut supposing he was,'where would he"..start?:...

Tlie war is over,' and the men who fought the war for  US is we think the man who should, receive from us the first  and important attention. We did not mean that the soldier  needs reforming, but there are things that do need reforming,  for him so that ho will get his reward���������his .just-reward���������for the  endurance and moments���������more" 'probably hours���������of agony he  has suffered on or off the battle field.    Now are we not right?  I'erc .again we are in a quandry.

'"���������*"'  ""-There "are many things  that do not suit the new era of  the present dawn.    We see trouble everywhere. "  ];.vt after mature consideration the editor of this paper has  come to the conclusion that, the very first���������and we have not arrived at a hasty decision���������would be to start at the Honest John  Oliver government and the only way to reform that great and  jumped up mixture of goodness, badness, fcpojied good intentions  faultfinding of iormer governments, braggadoccib, love-of'the  sound of one's own voice., self advertisement,-etc., etc.,'etc.', etc.;  would be to turn them out into the cr-id and-try something-else..  Now, we know there,are somo w>io will not agree* with 'us,  but when all is said and done, there area whole lot on our side  NOW. " ���������  HOW   TO   GE-T   T.HB   BONUS.  There surely must be some method  oi' yetting out of the government a  little ready money to pay the balance  of the war bonus (about $1,200) due  to each .and every civil servant. Getting a little easy money fro in the government is really the national game  once capitalists gave to lacrosse its  quietus by paying the players more  than they could spend. Various  means have been contrived by the  Federation to establish the claims of  their constituents in all parts of Canada. Careful consideration (that has  a familar ring), however, discloses  the fact that all the avenues to tho  desired bonus have not been traversed. The Federation has overlooked  one important fact; viz., that the  members of the government are human beings after all. During the war  the government gave notice that as  soon r.s peace was declared every  male and female citizen was to be  born again, like Nicotic m us, and that  Canada's national emblem was to bo  embossed upon a statue of Truth exalted upon a pedestal of lofty Altruism. No more would a man covet his  neighbor's or or his ass or his wife,  and of course women are expected  to reciprocate the abnegations of the  man. But tho government has cancelled this Order-in-council. Something is going to be promoted and every  body should, try to get in on the  ground flour.���������Civil Service Federation.  is also the necessity for genuino saving to make good the destruction of  capital during the war. ._       . .  It is the recognition of similar fun-  damentarconditions that has led to  the adoption, of the Canadian War  Savings* Plan'.

", _    .....       .:  Seed Importation Regulations  ItHALIZKS  XJ'JKO  OF  CONTINUING  TiIIUF  Great Britain realizes that the financial problems of the al'tor-fche-  v.-at period must be solved chiefly  through production "and saving. This  is to be seen in the recently published report of thot committee on the  prevision of /inanciai facilities for  trade after the war, appointed by the  Chancellor of the Exchequer and the  Minister   of   Rfecor.struction,  The committee express the omphalic opinion that the primary factor  in. repairing the wastage of capital  caued by the war lies .mainly in increased production and actual saving  The very large extent to which expansion has.take place is shewn by  the fact that whereas tlie total de-  po.'iits at the banks of the United  Kingdom, exclusive of the Bank of  England, amounted at the end of  li)i;-; to ������1,070,000.000.'The amount  of deposits is now nearly ������2,000;-  000,000.

The enormous potential increase  in the number of small Investors as  shown by the figures published by  the'National War Savings Committee  and the importance of the encouragement of tiiis tendency for the rapid  reconversion ot trade and industry,  are emphasized by the committee, as  Canadian farmers and gardeners are  protected from the evils of planting  inferior seeds of many kinds of crops  impelled from other countries' By  ���������an order-in-council that came into  effect in .the autumn importation is  prohibited of unfit -seed of clovers,  grasses, vetches, rape, other forage  plants,, field roots and garden vegetable?* in lot3 of ten pounds-or-more.  In Pamphlet .S-12- of- - the Seed  Branch of the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa, and obtainable  from the Publications Branch, unfit  seed is described as-that which., does  not comply with the Seed Control act  requirements respecting the sale of  seed In Canada, or if.,it has been refused admittance into any other coun  try on. account of low vitality.  Tlie regulations will be carried out  through the Cm?loin's officials who  are required to take and ferv/ard to  the Dominion (iSoed Laboratory for  examination samples of lots of.seeds  of the classes named entered for consumption in Canada. ..Seed that..has  arrived ,in Canada and .found .to be  unfit -shall be deported under Cus-  tome supervision. ' The penalty for  failing to comply with these regulations is $500 for the first ocencc  and not exceeding $1,000 forlhe second and each subiiSfjuent offense.

Understand  that clearly.  9SEOII3 3HM������lgJHlmi<Jlw������gHltM������������Ma.iw������.ir������BMn  CAUGHT 1'X Tli'K ACT  You Mr, Businessman, mean much  more to a railway as a successful  importer and. exporter)' than as a  mere consumer of goods. More and  more railway men, once mere acolytes to the i-iigh Priest of the Fiery  Chariot, are learning tiiis lesson;  that the public's prosperity is their  prosperity.  Let the Public learn it too.  The public, be it remembered, is  no easy person (o get on with. Any  man who keeps a store, any manufacturer or jobber who endeavors io  cater to public taste, knows the dilii-  culties of pleasing all the people all  the time. But he knows ,foo the im-  poriance of approximating that condition.  Lot him remember this when (hs  posiiion changes and he becomes one  of the railway Public. If, when that  is the case his necessities,are not approximate to general necessities ho,  the genera] public, is -bound to be  disappointed. .Railway service like all  other public service would soon fall  into disorder, if it attempted to meet  the .public on any other basis than  aproximation.  There  is  no  one as  deeply interested and involved in the welfare of  the public of Canada as the railway  companies.. Unlike   the   farmer  who  gets a better price when the wheat  crop  fails and  wheat  is  scarce,  the  railway suffers from a bad crop without any compensating consideration.  Unlike  the  banker,   who   may profit  by the greater necessities of the people;   unlike  tho   doctor,   the   lawyer,  the merchant,  the artist or the barber, who fix their "wages" by the lav.*  of Supply and  Demand���������who charge  more when they /ind a great demand  and less  when the demand slackens  ���������the  railway  is  concerned   only   in  promoting a greater volume of business?  It  loses where    the manufacturer .selling goods to the farmer does  not lose, for the buying power of the  manufacturer's     market  even    in  a  year of poor crops, is repaid to some  extent by the better prices the harvest  brings.  So with pulpwood and ore, oil or  coal, merchandise or building stone.  The enhancement of prices cannot relieve the railway of loss as it may the  individual producer. The railway's  prosperity, like the general prosperity of the country depends on the  volume of trade; the more, aiul tlie  higher class, the better.  Cu'vam   the  Kniayr  Valley  Rcoord)  It ii. generally' understood that  cash registers were invented to protect '..he employer's Interest in all  monetary matters, and once one was  Jm-ta.lcd in his place of business lie  felt quite confident that he was getting full returns for all goods sold.  Still there have been instances where  clerks have become proficient enough  to manipulate the keys to the tune of  '.'This house will soon be mine."  But generally speaking, a cash register was considered an acquisition  to any business house, especially  when the "Boss" bought'it with that  understanding that it was a law-abiding machine and not given to trifling.  But alas for the frailty of human  nature when  it comes to  concentrating, its hopes and ambitions on machinery or any other thing 'for that  matter.    Take for instance  of a  business man,  whose abode    is  not many miles from the Record office.     Tlie other day he had occasion  fo 'remove the cash' drawer from his  register and oii putting it bai;k found  it did  not fit properly.    Further examination disclosed tho fact "that four  one dollar bills, fwp twos, and cheque  dated 1915 were ensconsed in    l*ack  of the register.  Now the question is, was the register trying to "hold out" on our philanthropic friend or just jnerely acting as a self-appointed safety deposit  box?  Our sporting editor thinks that after making such a lucky find "Bert"  should be magnanimous enough to  lower the H. C. of smoking tobacco  or chocolates.  .jr "1   mi\rrZEfattimn ��������� ,|.-'~'"~viu-ir*nwTrfr'--r  1>tZ"WWV  Pi  V  ������  t^&k*?,  ��������� ;.'���������:���������-..������������������;���������' ��������� <*���������.'������������������.���������������,wv������".'*-> -'������������������������������������ ��������� ������������������*��������� ���������.-���������'��������� & i'i  i  .1  ��������� f^Mi ���������  ���������-  $   - fc-f-S  j':f:.;;'!$!
