W. V. Jackson, who had just completed his fourth term as president,  presided, and there was a turnout of  about fifty shareholders. His ripening  remarks were brief, dealing chiefly  with the satisfaction given in the  selling arrangement with the Mutual  Brokers, the uniformly good prices  realized on all the commodities,  the establishing and maintainance  throughout the year of regular  monthly pay days, and last but riot  least, the ability of the Union to make  the final payment for 1917 trade on  December 4th.  J. W. Hamilton. secretary-treasurer,  '.vent into the balance sheet as well as  the financial standing of the Union  very thoroughly. The business  ''���������������������u'cu last year whs in the neighborhood of $56,000, a showing that had  never before been equalled in the  Union's history except in "1.015; when  the total trade was approximately the  same. During the year $1,717 due  ranchers on other season's business,  along with $231 overdue woolesalers,  and $487 of other debts had been  taken care of. Contrasted with 1916,  operating expenses had been cut $^I;  commissions earned were up $620, and  the year's bad and doubtful debts were  only a matter of $46. Mr. Hamilton  demonstrated that the Union now  has a surplus of assets over liabilities  of $5,515. Too, were the sheriff to  walk in and demand that all the  money owing by the Union be paid  -forthwith there is liquid assets that  t'GUiu ������j6 realized upon, and whose  disposal would hot effect the good  conduct of Union affairs, that would  still leave the Union $779 to the good  on such a transaction. Mr. Hamilton  also dealt with the figures that go to  fix the value of Union^shares under,  the present statement of liabilities  and assets, showing that as the Union  now stands the pieferer.ce shares cf  $5 have an actual value of just under  $4.20.  The manager's report dealt at some  length with the present condition of  the Union, both as regards finances  and also the standing of the Company  with reference to the reputation which  has been built up for quality shipments  in grade nnd pack of-fruit, it was  pointed out that the main asset of the  company would always be its ability  to place the products of the Valley on  the market in such a manner and in  such condition that highest market  prices would be obtained, and to do  this work at the lowest possible cost  to the producer. That commendable  progress had been made towards this  end was clearly Bhown.  On the question of past seasons  prices Mr. Staples pointed out that  thc Union's price had always been  the highest market price prevailing at  time of shipment and made very clear  tho flti'irtHightedhess of a policy which  would try to bee lire ;i higher price  tniwi this from the consignee.  Reference was made to the crying  need for greater production from a  national standpoint. In order to meet  this need appeal was made to the  ranchers to concentrate every energy  upon tho problem which wo must face  of greater production in the 'ace* of a  serious labor shortage. During tho  coming season the Union in prepared  to do its part by handling the marketing problems more cheaply and more  effectively than ranchers could hope  to do thorm-clvci-, thus leaving tlie  grower in a position to   deal with the  A very gratifying feature of the  session under the head of new business was the appreciation expressed of  the magnificent service rendered the  Union by retiring-president Jackson.  Three of the four t������rm������s "he has been  at- the helm were strenuous ones indeed, but throughout them all he  gave the business much attention at  considerable sacrifice to his own bus-  aess' interests. On top of this his unbounded confidence in ultimate success and his unwavering loyalty to  the Union in disposing of his entire  crop year after year had been a considerable factor^in maintaing general  confidence in the selling agency.  Equally complimentary tributes were  also paid Mr. Hamilton, for his  efficient handling of the financial end  of affairs and sales manager R. "B.  Staples for all round good work both  in the warehouse as well as selling  much of the crop at such satisfactory  figures.  In assuming charge of the meeting  after the officers were elected, president-elect Compton briefly thanked  those presentyfor the honor they had  done him in placing him at the head  of Union affairs, assuring that he  would be on deck in 1918 both with  his time and-his ranch produce as he  had always been in the past.  ������������l ~������  Trad  @  Variously Active  Creston Board of Trade lacked but  four members of having its  total en-  x\. ..

Miss Ruby Palmer, who has had  temporary charge of the Wynndel  school since the new year, is home  again, the trustees having secured a  gentleman from the coast to take  charge,  Mrs.'Boffey   got back   on   Friday  from   almost   a   month's   stay    with  I friends near Calgary, Alta.  Friday night last found Mrs. Maxwell as hostess to the whist players,  four* tables of enthusiasts being on  hand to enjoy the well-known Maxwell hospitality. At cards the high-  score prizes fell to Mrs. Craigie and  H. A. Dodd, while Mr. and Mrs. Cotterill had the consolation each could  give the other in their bad luck of  making the low scores of the evening.  The lunch was in keeping with the  hostesses' excellent reputation in this  regard, and brought to tho close another highly successful and enjoyable  social session.  Tuesday night Mr, and Mrs, H. A.  Dodd did the hocus! honors, "ml did  them well. It. was aiiolhcrovoning at  cards, with five tables of devotees of  whist on band for tho play. Family  luck was not in evidence here, Mi's.  Boffey taking the ladies high prize,  and Jas. Cook the gentleman's trophy.  The evening'*-! misfortunes fell to Mrs.  Goodwin and Doiv/.il-Maxwoll. After  tin* guests bad done full justice to a  tempting lunch the tables wore cleared away and dancing was enjoyed for  an hour or two. The host and  hostess left nothing undone that  would add to the evening's pleasure,  and this affair will rank with the most.  which President Speers i  as a presiding officer, acquitting himself almost like a veteran. Two more  new members were elected to the  board in the persons of Jas. Ad lard  and J. A. Lidgate, president and  secretary respectively of the'Farmers*'  Institute.  Numerous    communications    were  before the house,  including one from  the Nelson  Iron  Works,   which  firn  wanted particulars of the electric light  plant they  had heard  was  to be installed   here.    The Dominion Fishery  Inspector  wanted  to  know  how the  fish ladder in   the C.P.R.  culvert at  Wynndel was working.    Kaslo  board  of trade was accorded  an endorsation  of their resolution  asking  the federal  authorities to either ask that the duty  on lead ores be removed by  the   U.S.,  or that Canada reciprocate by placing  a similar   tax   on   lead ores   coming  from ' the    U.S.   into   this   country.  Cranbrook   board   will  be told   that  Creston  does not favor  the mute,  ot  the trans-continentai    highway   outlined in a resolution from   Cranbrook.  For the irrigation committee Chair-  mau Embree reported a  yery   satisfactory  interview with  the Farmers'  Institute,  which  had named  a committee to co-operate' with the board  in this matter.    Victoria is now being  communicated with to haye Engineer  Biker make a survey  of the  proposed  route for the irrigatien ditch, and advise as to cost, at the earlieat possible  moment.  For the Keclhtriajtion committee  Chairman Constable outlined several  moves that were being inaugurated to  keep this project prominently before  all parties interested, more especially  returned soldiers organizations, to  the end that Kootenay Flats may be  developed as a soldiers colony farm.  Correspondence to hancTshowed that  Hon. Jonn Oliver had the proposition  under very serious consideration, and  there is every indication that Victoria  will be busy finishing up survey and  engineering work this season. To  further prosecute Reclamation work a  descriptiye booklet is now in the  hands of the printer and will be ready  for judicious distribution shortly.  Chairman Gibbs reported for the  trio of members to whom was delegated the task of striking the board's  standing committees for 1918, und  whose report was adopted.

Toe r������*,iblicitv  committee is to report at next meeting on the possibility of having Creston Valley literature of a brief leaflet  sort prepared for distribution in the  boxes of apples shipped this season.  Messrs. C. O. Rodgers, Guy Con  stable and President Speers will be  the local delegates to the Associated  Board's of Trade convention at Nelson the latter part of the month. A  resolution was also passed to invite  this organization to meet at Creston  in 1919. The resolutions to go before  the convention were discussed and  finally adopted. There are five of  them, but the two prominent onss  deal with Reclamation and the route  of the trans-provincial highway.  ������-*f  3 ������a a^ffj^^fa ^=8/Si  4%  ������%���������������&*������>   ������������  Wfe  uraws a crowd  s  Christ Church  Ladies' Guild a.raaual  t.

Mrs. Whitehead and Mrs. School of  Creston were renewing acquaintances  here last week, guests of Mrs. Hall.

There were in the neighborhood of  sixty in gala attire, with a yariety of  costumes that included most everything from the ultra historical down  to a few ordinary clowns, though  strange to say there was but one  pierette and nary a pierrot. Outside  of the national and historical garb the  tendency was to clowns, with about  half a dozen of them.  Possibly the outstanding feature of  the affair was the weakness for Indian  costume shown in the voting for the  costume-prizewinners, three of the  five prizes going to wearers of Indian  get-ups. Those who carried off the  honors were: Ladies' (homemade)  costume, Mrs. W. B. Embree, Indian  Maid.    Gent's   (homemade)   costume.  X   *    XJI.

Hilda Tressingham. half-  expectant of what George Ellington  might have done in view of his  threats, heard nothing. Von Roon  laughed when she referred to the  matter. Of course, they would never hear anything, he said���������if Ellington really had gone to the police he  had wasted his time.  "But you will hear something in a  few days no\v,"_ he said, with a significant grin. "This is Wednesday���������  yes, look in the mid-day papers on  Monday. I think you will be certain  of a surprise and a sensation then.  So  will  this  country."  He went off before sho could ask  for an explanation but she gathered  that bis hint had something to do  with thc secret document v. hic-.li she  bad helped him to examine. Hilda's  intcivsl in ilia', manor, liowr.-vcr, had  considerablv evaporate:!; sV- had  duly rt.-ceived her reward and was  handsomely in pocket, rvca. tr.  into account tiie deductions nec-:-;s:-  tated by squaring Parmmsler and tlie  butler.

Tarvis,  after  a  keen   glance  at  her  which   she   did   not   see,     took      her  straight   to  the  study.     She   had   not  been   in   it,   nor,   indeed,     since      the  night   when   George   Ellington   found  her  there.    And  now,  as   she  walked  in,   il   was   to   find     something    very  like  a family party assembled  there.  | There,  at   his .desk,     obviously     dis-  ; tressed to thc  last limit,  sat  George  Ellington;   near  him,  pale     and   tear-  i ful,  sat his  wife;  on  thc  hearthrug���������  : grim, pedantic, more Puritanical than  ever in his straight, sobei-hued  garments,     stood     Stephen      Ellington.  They were all  silent when  Hilda  entered;  it  was     she     who     eventually  spoke first.  "I came in answer to your message, Mr. Ellington,'' she said. "And  ���������at  once."  George Ellington looked up, lifting bis eyes on a blotting pad on  which he had been scrawling meaningless figures. There was something of entreatv in thc look he. gave  T-i*i.i���������  J.ilIU.1.

The Desperate Answer  it was seldom that Hilda Tressingham over felt thoroughly taken aback  but that she did on th's occasion was  manifest to everybody in George Ellington's study. Her face paled; she  caught her breath; she half rose  from her seat. And unconsciously  she spoke, a few words which she  would not have spoken had she been  on  her guard.  "My brother? My husband? What  arc they doing here?" she said.  "That is a question which T am  asking myself," observed George  Ellington, with a keen glance at her.  "I don't know why they should call  on   me   at   this   particular  moment."  He rose and turned towards thc  door as Jarvis reappeared at it. Thc  two visitors were ushered in with  due ceremony. Hartsdale came, first,  looking bored aud annoyed; lie had  plainly some eminently distasteful  task on hand, and when be caught  sight of Hilda he gave her a glance  of anger and vexation. But Hilda  scarcely looked at her brother; she-  was staring beyond him, at the man  whom she had believed to be in India, working in loneliness at a distasteful task, and mainly for her  sake, and certainly at her orders,  She bad not seen him for some time  and she suddenly realized how much  her elder he was, and how very old  he was beginning to .look.

No Bran or Shorts  Ahowed ExBorted  Farmers' Feed Supply Will Be Provided  For  In order to assist iu thc campaign  for greater production of food animals, thc food controller announced  that not a ton of bran arfd shorts  will be allowed to be exported until  the Canadian requirements are fully  met. The food controller is also considering the question cf fixing prices  for such feed, but iv any case it will  be made available to the farmers at  the lowest possible cost, and the pro-  tits of the dealers may be fixed as  soon as information from the several provinces is secured in response  io inquiries Avliich have been sent  out.  The government refused to allow  tbf>. exportation by a. large. milling  company of .143 cars of bran and  shorts, but purchased them and retold them to farmers without any  charge  for the  government's  service.  Applications for feed should be  addressed to the food branch of the  department of agriculture, OttaAva.  Mr. Hanna stated that, if necessary  to insure the farmers obtaining feed  supplies, the government will take  total output of mill by-products and  distribute it. He added that action  would be taken at once in case of  complaints that the mills AA-ere requiring the purchase of flour with the  offals. This 'practice must be discontinued.  A separate feed branch of the  Dominion department of agriculture is being established in Winnipeg to ser\rc Western Canada.

The writer,  personally, is in favor of the Canadian  product from a patriotic standpoint,  but had to put up a stiff fight to  secure the B.C. article, and only succeeded partly because we need two  carloads but had to give way on one,  and with this understanding: That  this is absolutely the last time we try  B.C. apples unless the Quality is up to  representation.

The above letters, which concern  a carload of Creston Valley  apples sold to an important branch  of the United Farmers of Alberta,  is a statement of case much more  eloquent all round than anything  The Review might give utterance  to in such connection.  Letter No. 1 in businessiike  fashion states why prejudice exists  against E.G. fruit, including the  Creston Valley article. Letter No.  2 discloses the fact that the Valley  produces the right quality of fruit,  and that if care ib taken to ship it  uniformly true to grade promised  there c:mi be no question of our  getting a fair share of the trade  most anyAvhere on the,. prairie  market.  Speaking of a mixed oar of fruit  As the largest shipper through the  Union he went without his money  in slow-pay seasons cheerfully, and  was never backward in pledging  his personal credit when funds had  to be secured at the bank.  In the board of trade and other  organizations, as well as the public  life of the Valley, Mr. Jackson  invariably used the prestige the  Union presidency and his business  standing gave him to the best  advantage.  vV ne  General Merchant  e  Creston  him as president a wider knowledge of some angles of horticulture, obtained in connection with  the B.C. Fruit Growers Association, of which he has been Bast  Kootenay director for three or four  terms.  He is to the fore in   the farmers  institute as well   as  the  board  of  trade,  and never lacks  for time to  tiwr trie  seasons were early  heiu ajollg any   oause  that  spells  or.late, wet or dry,   prices low and | oufc Ketter  t,|me8  or conditions for  the man   on   the  land.    And   this  r\w  Vallow  'hint  wrjinh     i)fMi'������  earlier iu October this same U.F.A.  branch writes, "You are to he congratulated on the general quality  >>f everything, though we are dis  appointed r>n not ree^iviug any  Italian prunes; next year wc- will  ������������������ rder earlier. There- was some  disappointment on pears. You  certainly picked them too ripe for  shipment, it in a pitja, too, for they  '���������ertainly were fine specimens. Thin  applies only to Kartletts."'  If the Mrlf-evident moral these  i'*t!,erH tuaoh in given htriet he*:*] i,o  this and following seasons Creston  Valley growers can more, or less  permanently clinch the ry.ti.siile*-  able advantage our next .-door  location to tin* prairie market gives  us,  With   every   project of   the ������������������re  collections slow President Jackson  never wavered in his loyalty to  the Union and to the welfare of  the ranching industry.  Witli the heavy demands increasing business interests make  upon him in these streruous times,  with Union affairs in the flourishing shape he has always striven to  help place them, Mr. Jackson has  well earned a release from office,  and well deserves the many graceful things said of his varied efforts  in connection with the Creston  Fruit Growers Union.  Although not directly connected  with the Union Mr. Jackson will  still continue to be its largest  customer as in the past. Independent sellers to the contrary, he  on.vH Union ReHino- hrimw) insi, m,h  good prices, saves time and worry,  and means much to the advancement of the industry generally.  willingness to promote the welfare  of horticulture is fully equalled in  his endeavor to exemplify the old  saying that example is better than  precept in close attention to the  rather extensive area he has under  cultivation.  With men of the Compton type  and standing backing Union  activities ranchers are re-assured  both as to the wisdom of staying  with such a selling agency, as well  as the satisfactory conduct of such  an organization so far as it is in  the powers of a president to control  affairs.  -Wore Gxoatti Serif Ice  Well Gha&en  hi parting company with nucha  loyal and capable first officer as  retiring-president Jackson, the  Union is .surely fortunate in having  almost his exact, counterpart to  succeed him, in president-elect Jn.s.

In paying our respects to Union  officials going and coming, THE  Review would be remiss if it did  not say a good word for the year's  effort for the secretary-treasurer,  J. W. Hamilton, and R. B. Staples,  the sales manager.  These arc the gentlemen that arc  very largely depended upon for results, but the statement of the  year's operations which has just  boon passed upon, the regularity of  1917 pay days, and tho exceptionally good priooA obtained on most  every commodity aro factors ho  convincing as to the abilities of  these gentlemen that there is little  or nothing for us to add by way of  commendation.  If tlie Union is fortunate in having such likely   material to call up  ���������"',    pre",'*-'''*!*.     ���������-'������*>i������l'i'     if    in   d'vt'ld"  blessed in having so reliable and  affable an accountant as Mr. .Hamilton who, at some inconvenience,  makes   it  convenient  to   ranch   as  well as  handle   thc   Union's books  so sal isl'io-l orily, with   11 i-.onse������pii>nt  Into* 1,0 be   xt'w.-o     .intl    has   ul waVJt 1 having   in   cxpcni.i;    so  dc.'-il'uhlc ill  size the situation up. An-average  price for 1917 of better than $2.50  per crate for strawberries; $2.40  for raspberries, and as high as $2  per box for more than a few of the  high class apples demonstrates  selling ability that requires no  verbal amplification to convince  almost any^gitizens. And less than  $50 of bad debts for the year's  operations, at that.  And on operating expenses a  saving of almost $600 is shown  comparing 1917 with 1916, with  the volume of commodities handled  very little less than in '16. Compared with the early-war years in  warehouse management certainly  one dollar is now almost doing the  duty a two-spot formerly did.  Some close-up acquaintance with  warehouse and office management  makes us bold to say that this  policy of rigid economy and business shortcuts has in no wise impaired efficiency, either to the  rancher or buyers of fruit. Gone,  too, are the days of hoped-for  prices. During 1917 any price information vouchsafed could Vie  relied on. Often when tho statements come it was a bit higher  than originally mentioned.  Taken all in all, good as has  been the showing for 1917, with  the added experience, with the  same officials in charge, given the  loyal support of the rancher-shareholders 1918 can be looked forward  to with the utmost confidence, D.V.  and market conditions permitting.  ���������'���������'- Huscroft school pupils  ' 1.45  Miss Hardman's pupils.���������  4.00  Sirdar Sunday School  6.00  Tuesday afternoon teas  13.35  Women's Institute  5.00  Membership fee  2.00  Sundries ....*  5.55  December���������  Canyon City Auxiliary  10.00  Huscroft school pupils  1.60  Miss Hardman's pupils  8.40  R.C. box at hank  5.1)5  Erickson school pupils..;  5.00  Women's Institute  5.00  Mrs. W.

Not only  lias the allied war council been established for land operations, but a  supreme inter-allied naval committee  of consultation also has been agreed  upon. Naturally in this connection  Great Britain's voice will be decisive  seeing thai her navy is the basis of  thc  entire  entente alliance.  Thc entente powers are now7 ready-  to prosecute the war with a singleness of purpose such as they have  not previously known. They can  control the British, French aud Italian fronts as one war theatre and  move troops and supplies accordingly. The resultant strengthening of  I their offensive and defensive power  ! will be considerable. And opportune  also. For the central powers, judging from their savage blows against  the Italians and on the Cauibrai  front, are fighting more fiercely than  they ever did in hope to secure a decision  before  thc  spring.  With thc million men or so they  will secure through Russia's defection, they hope to bring thc allies to  the peace-table in a few months.  They already realize that the sub-  .

"President Wilson's statement of  war aims is good enough for me.  We mean to win the war, however  long it may take. If Russia has  fallen out of thc ranks, thc United  States has fallen in and is corning  to our aid. The longer Great Britain  and America' arc ugh ling- side by  side, the closer they will" be drawn  together. That is a tremendous  fact, and it will make amends for  what we are now suffering."  After frankly dealing with the present unfavorable war situation, he  said this was entirely due to the fact  that_.;..,Russia had been thoroughly  beaten by German intrigue and gold,  no less than German steel. This had  robbed the allies of their prize when  almost within  their grasp.  "Wc shall not be beaten by perils  and sufferings, we have not deserved." he declared, amid loud j  cheers. "Our aims arc exactly what  they were in August, 1914. when Belgium was invaded. We have -not increased our aims and we shall not  diminish them one jot. There has  never been a moment during thc war  when patriotic men had less excuse  than thc present for being misled by  sophistries  and  dangerous   counsels.  "Our sole aim is that tlie prepe-  trators of these innumerable crimes  shall not profit thereby and emerge  stronger than before. That is As-  quith's and Lord George's and Wilson's war aim, and I cannot conceive of any situation arising, whereby the war will be prolonged one unnecessary day solely through thc  question  of  territorial   gain.  "We are not lighting for booty or  revenge. The British empire will be  satisfied when Prussian militarism is  unmistakably beaten and thc German  people saved from militarism and its  evil spell."  vjerman /^.ttacts r rustrated  ence of Mind of the Colonel  The very sight of the kilt strikes  terror into the hearts of the average  German soldier. A man who went  overseas with a Western highland  battalion writes of a German attack  which was frustrated by the wit of  his colonel and the fear of the kilt.  "One day," he says, "the Fritzes had  just massed, and were beginning to  top their parapet for a charge, when,  to our utter amazement and consternation, thc colonel sprang up the ladder, and in a trice was out on our  own parapet for all tlie Germans to  see.  "Before wc could realize what had  happened, he raised his arms, shouting at the pitch of his voice: "Come  on, Gorclons> Camerons and Sca-  forths, come on!"  "For a moment we didn't understand, and then we let out such a  yell, and let drive such a terrible volley that the Fritzes, to a man, turned tail, and before you could have  said "Jack Robinson" every mother's  son of them was back again in the  trenches���������the charge was 'off'���������and  the colonel stepped down, smiling.  "It was the colonel's wit that had  saved the situation. Those Germans  must have thought that all the clans  of Scotland were at his back. As- a  matter of fact, had they come over  they would have found only a handful of men to deal with."  Allies Need Much Wheat  Greatest   Deficiency    in    Production  Has Occurred in France  Mr. T. K. Doherty, commissioner  for Canada of the international institute, estimates that the wheat production of the world for 1917 is about  93,000,000 bushels less than last year  and about 414,000,000 bushels, or over  10 per cent, less than the  average.  The European and Mediterranean  countries, both neutral and allied,  which depend largely on the outside  world for their supplies are Denmark.  France, Greece, Italy, Holland, Nor  i'ortugai.   v_yprus  v;ay������ 1 onugcti, v,yjjrus ana Malta,  Spam, Sweden, Great Britain, Ireland, Egypt, Tunis, Switzerland and  Belgium. These countries produced  570,087,000 bushels of wheat in 1917  as against 706,073,000 bushels in 1916.  and an average of 782,791,000 bushels  in the five pre-war vears, a decrease  of 135,186,000 bushels or 19.2 per  cent, from 1916 and of 211,904,000,  or 27 per cent, from thc pre-war average. Thc greatest deficiency exists in France, where thc 1917 crop  is 172,669,000 bushels less than the  average production of 317,639,000  bushels for five years before the war.  Germany, India as a whole has prov  ed her loyalty in this conflict. It was  one of the hopes of Berlin that Britain would be hampered in the great  struggle by an insurrection in India.  After three years of war, India has  stood  the  test.     Not  only # has     she  been free from serious uprisings, but  she has done magnificent service    to  the empire.    At the beginning of the  war the army in India was comprised  of 78,000 British and 158,000     native  troops.      From    this    comparatively  small  army India  has  succeeded    in  building up   successive   expeditionary  forces  that are   doing  splendid    service in various fields of    war.     The  entry of Turkey into thc war was a  serious   strain upon   the  loyalty     of  the Mohammedan race, but the sixty  millions  of that  faith  remained firm  in their allegiance to the British emperor.   Among thc tasks entrusted to  native  Indian troops were    the    defence of their own country, aud thc  advance in Gallipoli when the Gurkhas  fought their  way side  by     side  with British troops to within sight of  the  Hellespont.     In   France,   in    the  early stages of the campaign, Indian  troops   took  part   in   thc   series      of  battles  that  culminated  in  thc  three  days' fight at Neuve Chapelle.   Later  these  forces    were    transferred      to  Mesopotamia, where they have    won  distinction  and  honor    in   thc    very  heavy fighting which has taken place  in that region. -  As a granary of tho Empire and a  source of supplies for the British  armies, India has played a notable  part. Since the outbreak of war she  has sent Britain wheat to the value  of fifty-five million dollars. In addition she supplied Britain, in the first  critical weeks of the war, with ninety  million rounds of small arms ammunition, a large number of rifles, and  330 modern field guns. In raw materials alone Britain has drawn from  India hides to supply twelve million  pairs of boots. India bears the expenditure of maintaining her own  troops abroad, which is estimated at  a total to date of seventy-five million  *-~ ���������1 dunars. xn audstion she has made a  free grant of five hundred million  dollars towards the cost of the war.  The ruling chiefs have added to this  by munificent personal contributions  that attest their loyalty and devotion  toBritain.  in view of what India has accomplished, her claim to fuller powers of  self-government should not lightly be  dismissed.���������Toronto Globe.

France's Food Situation  T?r  xvvviuiis; iri-wi-j i'lom This Continent to Make up Shortage  In a recent statement issued by  Mr. Maurice Long minister for general revictualling of France, it was  shown that the 1917 wheat crop of  France was only 39,900,000 hundredweights, as compared with 87,830,000  in 1913, 76,930,000 in 1914, 60,630-  000 in 1915 and 58,410,000 in 1916.  The entire production in France this  year of cereals, potatoes aud beet  root was only 222,000,000 hundredweights as against a production in  1913 of 358,000,000.

Peace based on the status quo  ante or on renunciation, therefore, is  out of the question for Germany."  With reference to the rumor that  Germany would give up Zcebrugge  and Ostend if the British evacuated  Calais, von Tirpitz said:  "The evacuation of Calais would  never be equivalent to the loss of  such first-class security. Moreover,  the channel tunnel will become a  fact after the war. For real security  avc should have besides Flanders and  Antwero, Calais and Boulogne. The  rumor In question is a screen behind which the question of Flanders  might be permitted to disappear.  "The pretext that we cannot coerce Great Britain and America falls  to the ground when wc consider the  growing scarcity of the cargo space  of our ruthless arch-enemy.
