Remember how we celebrated? _oy reigned supreme; and now  'at this the first anniversary we have the boys home with us  many of them back into civil life again. '  ' But the close of the war has brought to us many question?,  that we thought not of while the war was'on and surely not before it began.

We are told that it will be the same  with the money spent-in bonds for this Victory Loan. Let us  show'th'a. what "Canada undertakes, Canada can accomplish.  Canada-has undertaken to raise $300,000,000; .Canadian soldiers  .undertook work in France; the were successful, if the Victory  Loan-succeeds it will be another Mons for Canada without the  bloodshed, sorrow and pain.  : : -As to the investment and the security of the money invested  Imagine all'the vast wealth of the 3,500 miles of country lying  between-the Pacific and the Atlantic, it is not worth while to  invest your money to see this great country���������yet undeveloped���������  prosper!

Traflic and Credit Association beaked up by the Western Jobbers Asscoiation protested against  the minumum load for refrigerator  cars being 3 6,000 lbs and asked the  Railway Companies for a return to  the 30,000 load minimum. This has  been conceded without an order by  the Railway Commisiscn .with the  understanding that shippers will  load as heavily as possible. There  is a great shortage of requirements in  refrigerator cars and much less is  likely to result owing to this cause.  If. is next to impossible to secure cars  lo roll vegetables and potatoes and  shippers find it hard to obtain .enough  cars to roll the higher grade apples.  The 30,000 minumum will expedite  country orders where it would be impossible to use the heavier .load, but  beyond such cases it will be in the  interest of all concerned to make the  most of the equipment available.���������  'Markets Bulletin.  1^1 JL_k  Funeral  Director  AGENT   FOR   HEAlDSTONKS  Phone Connection.

Parliamentarians and publicists, the press and the pulpit, discuss the problem and seek for its solution, while the discontent of the people grows because the cost of living, one of  tho root causes of unrest, keeps above the capacity of tho average*  wage-earner or salary receiver to reach it. Somewhere, somehow, alleviation for existing conditions must be found; for the  moment it is not in sight.    From Ottawa there is no lead.  A butcher from Toronto told the High Cost of Living Committee of the Commons that he could sell meat cheaper if In  could buy from the farmers in the open market, but he asserted  that this could not be done in Toronto because Swift & Co., of  Chicago controlled the Union Stock yards, and the business had  to be carried on through commission men. This is an allegation  which should be investigated and dealt with as speedily as a reported outbreak of a serious scourge.,, The committee was also  informed that half a million pounds of meat on ships in Vancouver harbor could.not be unloaded because of the longshoremen's'strike. That is a clear case of the���������'worldngman taking a  stand against his own intrests.���������Toronto Globe.  Kingston.

Export Trade in  Dairy Products  **    '       .   ���������  ���������     '- '-MS39  It' is  the concensus of opinion   of  Canadian officials who have visited  Europe that the future of the export,  trade .in dairy products is assured.  In England butter is everywhere at  a premium and Canadian cheese continues to hold its good reputation.  Mr. 1-1. S. Arkcll. Live Stock Commissioner, who has recently returned  from overseas, states that the shoit-  age of milk and- dairy'produ'cts in  Great Britain is unprecedented. The  same is true of other European countries. The scarcity and high price  of concentrated feed is to some extent responsible for this. The condition is so general as not quickly to  be remedied. It is further responsible for retarding the increase of  swine production and the restoring  of the iiormal requirements of fat  This'statement from the Live Stock  Cdmmisisoner should give confidence  not only to dairy farmers . but to  those who'are able to! raise hogs.  r  Pay Envelope of $70,000,000  A 'pay envelope ' crammed , with  $75,000,000' is not a hard thing to  lake, even if it is for a year's work.  rI his is-the amount of wages earned  by Canadian investors in the Victory  and other War Loans,'rather, it is the  amount by their money.  Close to half of this amount is te  be distributed to the fortunate investors'either on November 1st or December 1st., just in' nice time to b;  re-invested in bonds of Victory Loan  I<J1!I.    People get ahead financially, not  by spending interest returns on every  day things' but by setting the returns  back to earn more interest. Money  placed that way, rolls up like a snowball.  WI2l.lv IN OALGAKV  Zero weather and snow would suggest our weather this week. Potatoes are rising in price, it. is estimated tlia't 50 per cent of the Alberta  and Saskatchewan crop is frozen in  tlie ground'. Car shortage prevents  B. C. spuds from rolling in the quantity demanded and rumors are abundant that "heated cars are ail n-eded  to move appl������s and that vegetables  will have to wait, cars rolling west  of Winnipeg are reported to have the  preference ,ovod refrigerator. ' Cars  sent to U.S. points with'meat have  failed to return and are doing service near there where a shortage ai-  so exists.  There is every prospect of spuds  being high priced. We would urge  that, the small sized and unshapely  potatoes be kept at. home.��������� Market's  'Bulletin.  QUITE   TO  THE   POllNT  A writor in the Vancouver World  commenting on the' teaching profession has the following to say, which  ;s a part of a' letter,:  Something should be done to dis-  ibuse tbe minds of trustees of Lhc  notion that the teacher holds his pos-:  tion-by their good will and may be  l-3missed at their pleasure. '1'iic  :auses for dismissal should be plain-  y and definitely stated in the school  aw. A teacher should be dismissed  ���������nlv when written    charges    against.  him have been proved' before the  trustees who might act as a preliminary court of trial and afterwards,  should the teacher ��������� care to ��������� appeal  from the decision of I his preliminary  court, before a competent judicial  tribunal, with power'to reinstate and  vindicate the teacher should ' '.he  charges against him fail' of proof.  In the province of Alberta a teacher  dismissed by a board of school trustees may appeal to the. Minitser of  Education, who. has power to make  investigation and reinstate tha teacher should he deem dismissal to have  been made without due cause.  .*- *  AETER OUH EEJiRY  A petition is being circulated in,  llauey for the Mission'ferry when the  new ferry arrives.
