The result was that' when  they took me out for a walk, as they  frequently did, I loked like a Winnipeg street car during the rush hours.  They hung things all over me. Rifle,  bayonet, pack, haversack, smoke-helmet, ammunition pouches, entrenching tool,, water bottle, and a dozen  other things besides. But one thing  1 did not receive from the Army waa  a moustache."  There was a young man of Bast Sand-  ling,  Whose girl wanted delicate handling.

Tax by any  other name'-would suit just as well.  The poll tax.of British Columbia was  the most objectionable tax that any  part of the -British Empire, that we  we know, ever collected, and if introduced again, would be no more palatable; but.would undoubtedly supply a felt; want^���������a soft snap for a  govern ment supporter.  There should be somo other way of  getting at tho Chinese and the alien  or the man who pays no tax. Every  Chinese should pay a tax of $50 a  year for the privilege of living in  our country���������and we don't think it  would be 'class legislation either' as  they can hardly be considered in our  class even now.  The Liberal papers'throughout the  province now are very busy���������some of  them do not act as defendant as well  as they did as prosecutors or persecutors, whichever you like to call it,���������  the latter meaning to follow with  malice.  Somebody fold us a good story the  other day (wc can't tell it as good  as it was told) but it ran thus: the  governor of Massachussetts went a-  way down south to Alabama to in-  c-uire into the state of trade there as  it was not satisfactory. After investigation he called the agriculturists together and this is what he told them:  That they should pay more attention  to their H's, raise more Hominy,  raise more Hogs, and raise more  Harmony, and there would be an era  of prosperity such as the country a-  ���������"cund. had never experienced before.  The story ended there, for which we  were sorry, as the result would have  been interesting and instructive.  When It Pays'to Advertise  If advertising were an expedient  for excessive profits or a device to  dispose of inferior goods,cheats and  the like would bo the leading users  of printers' ink.  But sincere advertising is primarily a challenge to comparisons, r.he  hist man possibly to benefit through  its use is an unreliable merchant.  Honest men alone invite attention. In the business underworld,  identifying marks are jealously a-  voided. From time to time knaves  have unwisely attempted to prostit  ute publicity but in the end the  force they invoked against public  interest invariably struck back ant  destroyed   them.  Misrepresentation defeats its own  object. When you see firms and  products on record year after year  in the same publications, be assured that they're giving full equivalent  for the money they ask.  It pays to advertise���������when you're  right.

J, HENDERSON .& SONS PROPRIETORS  More and more British munition  orders will come to Canada, instead  of to the United States, if this country can handlo them financially and  industrially. Already about $650,000.-  000 worth of ordors has been place J,  and in 1917 ?200,000,000 or $300,-  000,000 more may be expected. The  British government has recently cancelled $100,000,000 worth of orders  in the United States, as a consequence  of the federal reserve board's interfo*'  ence with British financing in New  York. More cancellations will follow  with no renewals of completed orders  to lighten the burden of maintaining  exchange. ��������� Candada will be exceptionally favored, especially if it extends credits to Britain for such purchases, and thus helps to maintain  the international balance, for our  credits help directlly in offsetting allied liabilities for United States supplies.  , When the federal reserve board issued its warning in New York against accepting of British or French treasury bills the British authorities pour  ed in about $200,000,000 worth of  gold, as an evidence of the ability of  Britain to settle forthwith. The British and French governments have  paid to the United States nearly $700-  000,000 in gold already. That cannot continue indefinitely. If the war  drags on preference will tend more  and more to placing orders in countries such as Canada, which will accept British treasury securities. The  national service movement is. distinctly fir' industrial, organizing purposes, lo enable us to increase our capacity for filling orders, and to help  ourselves while helping the cause  Canadians have so much at heart. In  1917 it will be Canada that will loom  largely in European eyes, in a war  industrial sense, and not the United  States.���������Mail and Empire.

Did you know  moreover, that there was a locality  where one gets and gives a cheery  word or two of greeting without the  bother of an introduction and where  the plain man puts1 a cheerful dash of  color in the social landscape by  the promiscuous addition of the  same to his personal apparel?  Perhaps you know of these things  in a general way, perhaps you have  heard something of this sort somewhere or perhaps you have been  there���������where-���������why West, of course  and by that 1 mean way West.

Your Westerner is, contrary to  what one may believe, and notwithstanding the considerable neighborhood distances, much given to the  enjoyment of social pastimes dances in particular. The now traditional thirty-mile ride of the cowboy  to a dance is no figment of the novelist's brain, even the summer visitor to the hills and plains thinking  nothing of a fiften-mile canter before treading the more measured  beat of the  waltz.  Newspaper men and others may  talk of the passing of the West; it  is nott rue; it is but the bad and  undesirable which has gone on, the  which has gone on, the real West can  West can never die.  Kipling in speaking of India says  that "East is East and West is  West, and never the twain shall  meet." I sometimes think that this  might be applied to our own country. , for certainly the Easterner  has   not   the   ability   to   see   things  through 'Westerner eyes, ami most  certainly the Westerner will never  look through your narrow gauge t.elor  scope.���������Hartford  Courant.
