Many other enterprises are encouraged by a  bonus, but rarely is the newspaper  offered any such help and still more  often not given the support it is entitled-to. Communities frejuently  lose sight of their, real benefactor  when they fail to recognise the week  ly journal as such. The editor and  his paper stands as the bulwarks of  defense against the attacks of evil  or designing schemes affecting the  good of the individual or the town.  For these and other reasons the  newspapers of the town and county  should receive the support of the  public at large in a very liberal degree, for It is really, the most important business enterprise of .the  community.���������Ex.     .

ELECTION IN VANCOUVER  This Saturday several local peop,le  are going over to Poplar School for  the concert in aid of the Pine Grove  Presbyterian church.  Justice Clement decided on Wednesday after hearing the argument  of certain citizens against the election of Mayor L. D. Taylor on the  grounds of his qualifications not being, sufficient, that the election was  void and that a new. election for mayor must be held.  The date of the election was not  fixed but it must take place within  2'5 days after the date of the unseating of the mayor.  Mayor Taylor will run again, so he  says and the chances are that he  will be elected by a larger majority  than ever. ���������   i   ,  The dramatic ��������� s club run by the  young, men of Abbotsford, is active  at present.- Some twenty friends  are busy practising for the sketches  which are to startle the ladies of Abbotsford.

In all this storm and commotion and agony of  mind one thing stands out clearly and that is the  thought of service. What can we do, how can  we  serve? To  many    of   us    the   ' answer  is  that we also serve who only stand and  wait: And while waiting keep the pot boiling!  And also while waiting do what can be done for  others. ���������  ���������;In this, process note should, nay must, be tak-  ,en of the plight of our soldiers' womenfolk.  Thousands and thousands of our men are being  ���������metamorphosed^ 'into khaki1 .soldiers; thousandjs  and th6usands of men have left civilian life to  don uniforms and learn to drill and handle a  rifle and dig trenches. And what is happening  to their wivs and children and their mothers?  What financial .arrangements are made for them  while the breadwinner of the family is away  fighting the enemy���������or waiting more or less patiently for a chance to fight anything but mud  and  blues?  This is a matter of much importance and one  which I have not seen as yet put in any complete form before the public. The responsibility of the welfare of the .family left behind also  rests upon us. I propose to show what is being  done in this line in Canada and point out certain  suggested lines of reform for the consideration  of the public.  *     *   ��������� *  When the civilian becomes a soldier and-there  are no private means, three sources or revenue  are open to the wife or widowed, dependent mother.    These three are:��������� '  1st. The Government Separation Allowance.  2nd The Soldier's assigned pay.  3rd The Patriotic  Fund.  With regard to the first the following is an extract from the Order-in-Council dated 4th Sept.  1914:���������  "A  'nioney   allowance  has. been  (authorized  for   the  wives  and   families   of  the   non-permanent troops Bent abroad at the following, rates:-  Per month  Rank and file :   ?20  Sergeants and  staff  sergeants       25  Warrant officers      30  Lieutenants      30  Captains    ���������. .': '.      40  Majors         50  Colonels or Lt. Colonels  .'. :     60  Widowed mothers whose unmarried sons are  their sole support are also granted the allowance.  If the soldier is in receipt of a government  salary in addition to his military pay, the allowance is not granted."  This is followed, in the government book on  Fnancial Instructions, by the following:���������'The a-  bove allowances will be paid direct to the families  concerned from the Militia Department at Ottawa  on the receipt of particulars furnished by the officers and men concerned, as called for by the Chief  Paymaster of the Force."  This seems quite a clear matter. The Government pays the above scale, of Separation Allowances to the wives and widowed dependent mothers of our solrjiers. Now, the flaw in the above'  seems to lie in "this:���������that no distinction is made  between the woman with a large family and the  woman with .no family. Mrs. A., who was married the week before her husband enlistd, gets the  same as Mrs. B., who has ten children.  If it wre possible to get all the single men or all  the married men without families who are needed  this lack of discrimination would not matter. Unfortunately, it has been necessary to take men'  with families and in many cases men with large  families.  As far as I can find out ours is the only govern--  ment granting allowances which does not give so  much to.the wife and so much for each child.  *    , *     *  Our soldiers are very well paid. They receive  more than three times the pay that Tommy Atkins  draws. The entire list of officers' pay is too long  to give in full but it ranges in the Regimental  rates from six dollars a day and $1.00 field allowances to colonels to one dollar a day and ten cents  field allowances to privates. The Canadian Tommy therefore gets in -a month of thirty days just  thirty-three dollars. As he is fed and clothed  this is very good pay indeed and Mr. Tommy Canuck can very well afford to make over a good  portion of it to those dependent upon him or if  he has not got any dependents he can, and should,  let it accumulate, in part, with the paymaster, so  that he will have something to draw upon when  the war is over.'  With regard to this assignment of pay Militia  Orders on Mobilization for Service Overseas, has  this to say: ���������  "Officers, non-commissioned officers and men  will be permitted to assign a portion of their pay,  not exceeding four-fifths of the monthly amount, to  their relatives. The amount assigned must be in  dollars only (no cents) and the maximum amount  which may be assigned by a private soldier will be  $25. Arrangements  will   be  made   at  Militia  Headquarters for the payment of assigned pay to  the  person  to  whom  the    assignment    has  been  made."      '        i  We thus "see, that every Tommy Canuck can  make over as'.much as twenty-five dollars a month  to his relatives.. And be it said in credit to Tommy'  that many of them have done' so. This is a matter largely in the hands of the officers. If they  ' urge their men to do the decent thing in the way  of assigned pay to those dependent upon them  the chances are that they will do it.  The government has just issued an order that  all married soldiers must make over at least fifty  per cent, of their pay to their wives. This is acting simply in accordance with the British War  Office regulations which have decreed for over 50  years that a certain proportion of the married  men's pay shall go to their wives. It is most earn-  estly hoped that this order will not have the effect of making over less than fifty per cent. As'  has been said the men can and should make over  not less than fifty per cent. The wife can bank a por  tion. of this so that '.when the husband returns to  civilian life and is out of a job there,will be a little' nest egg to help him on his feet again.   ,  In addition to the government Separation Allowance we have now in the family purse the soldier's  assigned pay.  *     *     *  But Mrs. Tommy Atkins has a third source of  income. /Phis is the Canadian Patriotic Fund, so  generously subscribed to by the public In a circular issued by the headquarters of the Patriotic  Fund at Ottawa, and' signed by Mr. Ames, M. P.  the Honorary-Secretary, the following explanation  of their modus operandi occurs.���������-    .  "In the city of Montreal if a woman applies for  herself and three children, aged respectively 12,  7 and 3, she is regarded as- entitled to receive, if  she has no other source of income whatsoever the  sum of approximately $45 a month. This would  be made up by'allowing her $1 a day on her own  account and adding 25 cents per day for a child  between the ages of 10 and 15- years, 15 cents  for a child between 5 and 10 years, and 10 cents  for a child under five years. If, however, she receives separation allowance of $15 or $20 a month  the Fund should be relieved to that extent."  This was obvio;''*^'' written before it was known  that the separation "allowance would be $25 per  month. What the husband *makes over to his wife  out of his pay is not taken into consideration at  all by the fund. It is nw seen that with these  three sources of income that our  soldiers'  wives  are in a fairly comfortable position.  ' *     *  , *  . We now come to a very strange state of affairs '  So long as the soldier is alive .his ��������� dependents receive $20 per month from the government, ten  form the Patriotic Fund and often as much as  twenty-five from the husband, giving a total of $55  a month. To simplify matters I. am taking as an  example, the woman without children,- although  I shall- have something to say later about the woman' with children..  But suppose this unfortunate man dies or is killed?    What happens to his wife?  The government Allowance stops.  The assigned pay stops.  The Patriotic Fund stops or rather did stop until repesentations caused it to act in variance to its  original intentions.  And what does the wife get? She - gets the  splendid pension of three-fifths of her husband's  pay���������in other words, nine dollars a month. Quite a  a drop is it not from fifty-five a month?  To turn back for a moment to the help given by  the Patriotic Fund to widows and orphans. In the  Act of Incorporation of the Patriotic Fund widows  and orphans are not mentioned. However, in response to representations the'Patriotic Fund has  decided to give, widows and orphans the difference  between the present. inadequate pension rates and  the proposed new pension rates, the government to  refund  the  Fund  later.  The present pension rates for a widow are throe  tenths of her husband's pay and to each one-tenth  the whole not to exceed five-tenths.  Thus at the present the wife of a private who  dies or is .killed, who has six children would receive fifteen dollars a month!  The new pension rates if they go into effect  would give the woman five-tenths of her husband's  pay and a yearly grant of $60 for each child But  still this would only give the widow without children  fifteen   dollars  a  month  *     *     *  It is obvious that the duty of the country, if we  are ever so unfortunate as to have another war, is  to allow all soldiers' wives a certain sum and an  amount for each child. This should surely not be  less when the man dies than before he dies. A  German lady tells me that in Germany the wife  gets so much a month (fifty-six marks), and so  much for each child up to the age twenty-one. The  same sura continues if the man dies.  This is the only right and just way and if it  were done here such private philanthropies as tho  Patriotic Fund would be needless. Good work -  as it is doing it is work that should be done by  the government and this for several reasons, of  which it is only necessary to mention a few. When  a work that has to be done is done'by private  philanthropy the burden falls on the generous giver, not all alike. Many have given lavishly to the  Patriotic Fund. Others, quite as well able to give .  have given nothing. If the relief money came solely from the government, it would fall on all alike  Then there is the question of recipients. When  money is received by wives and dependents from  (Continued on Last Page)  And all that it meant he knew;  "We shall want every man who can  shoulder a gun ;  To carry this thing through!'-'  BravoBravo Kitchner- Say what you.  ,   want,  No one shall say you nay!

The mixture advertised as a cure for tuberculosis was found on analysis to consist of ,8(i per cent water,- a" little  whiskey and iodide of potassium.  The whole mixture was worth about  20 cents and retailed for $5 During  September the returns ' were $800,  and in October $1000, Besides the  iodide of potassium, which is said- to  be positively harmful in cases of.  tuberculosis,. there was a sediment  composed of wood and particles of  dust.  " Bridal  Superstitons  The bride must never dress in her  complete wedding splendor before the  ceremony.  She must put- on lier right - shoe  first and not try on" her ring before  it is placed on her-finger at the altar.-  She must not take any hand in making her bridal gown or her wedding  cake. "'  However happy she is, it will be  wise for her to weep a little on her  wedding day.  She must not look at herself in the  glass when ready before she is married, ;  To find a spider on her wedding  gown      is a    sure    sign    of happiness to come. ���������' ,   -  -   To dream of fairies the night be  fore means that she;rWill- -be thrice  blessed..  .

HOME WORK FOR PUPILS  Recently a small boy, somewhere in the province of B. C,  broke out laughing while doing  his homework in the evening.  The following is the question  he was doing: "In the month  of February, 1915, 30 hens laid  1380 eggs. If eggs sold at 40<;  a dozen, what was the average  amount of money produced  from the sale of one hen's eggs  per month?"  Hens that lay like that are  almost priceless and should be  placed in the egg laying contest of the province.

No matter how fervid are the protestat  ions that it is not charity and. tactful the workers there is always the feeling on the part of those  who receive the money that it is charity. And this  tends to the weakening of the moral fibre of the  community. '  *     *     *  There is another .matter which concerns most  deeply the women of Canada whose husbands or,  sons are fighting for their country. This is the  question of pensions given to such men if they aro  wounded or disabled.' ������������������' ��������� >���������.  As there are vastly more- privates than any other  rank of soldier let us look at the pension given to  Tommy Canuck if he is unlucky enough to-be  disabled for life. We shall suppose our Tommy  to have given up steady work at twenty dollars  or thereabouts a week and to have been unfortunate enough to become-disabled for life from the effects of some of the deadly shrapnel.  Tommy comes home to Mrs. Tommy and his six  little ones and what pension does he get?  If he is totally incapable of earning.a livelihood  as a result of wounds received in battle he will receive the-sum of one-hundred and fifty dollars a  year! He and his wife?and six children will have  twelve dollars and fifty cents a month, just about  enough to pay tho rent in a poor locality. But that  is the maximum pension for Tommy Canuck.  If ho is rendered totally incapable of earning a  livelihood by injuries received' or illness contracted while on active service but not in action, he will  only receive- $110 a year.: If rendered materially  incapable of earning a livolihccd ha receives seventy-five  yearly  Enough has been quoted to show how hard these  rates are on the,women and children. Nothing lies  ahead of the-wife of one of our disabled'soldiers  but bitter poverty and unending work to keep body and soul together. It is said that the govern  ment proposes to improve these pension rates. It  must do so. and the public must see to it. that it is  done and 'properly, done. . ���������  "But think of the price'that 'it is going to-cost  Canada," a high government official said to me.
