The best grades of flour  are advertised as low as $5.40 per sack  which certainly shows a marked decrease from the high prices of 1917  when flour-sold as high as $7 per sack  In view of this fact the natural  question to ask is, wonld it not be wise  for us to buy at least a three months'  supply of flour ? Enquiry brings the  information that purchases of flour  are still being made on a wartime  basis; that is to say very^few are buying more than one sack at a time, and  the 50<-pound suck is stiii a popular  package.  that bran and shorts to the extent of  five full ears were handled during the  nine months referred to.     This would  indicate that the Union has been getting from the mills considerably more  than their share of bran and _shorts.  Wheat today is being milled according  to a definite standard set by tbe Canadian Wheat BoardS-' This means that  all of the larger mills are turning out  practically   the   same   flour.    It   also  means that each  bushel  of wheat is.  being   manufactured   into   a  definite  number of pounds of flour, bran  and  shorts, approximately seventy five per  cent, flour and twenty five, per cent,  bran and shorts,    Under ordinary conditions a buyer of flour would be entitled  to one sack  each of bran and  shc-ts for every six sacks of flour purchased.   {Creston District expects two  sacks of shorts and one sack of bran  for every sack of flour purchased.    A  proportion impossible to obtain except  under favorable conditions which occur when the mills happen to be working on export orders- of flour.    Such a  condition exists at  the  present  time  The cold snap still prevails, and on  Wednesday -morning we had our first  touch of zero weather this season.  The school trustees have had to report to utilizing home made desks for  the second room at the school. These  were almost finished the fore part of  the week, and the school is expected  to open on Thursday morning.  Mr. Blair has just purchased a gra-  maphone. It is a New Edison and of  splendid  design   andvmusical quality.  Mrs, Dayis, a. resident at the mill,  is having a visit from her brother at  present.  The gii-h  ,j?   n.,x...���������  .ri       vanjrllll  oe  more to the mutual advantage eif all  concerned will buy bran and shorts in  puantities which will enable ranchers  to lay in a winter's supply.  3Si-mmSago  So far as we are aware  no  national  service is being performed   by placing  and de>ubtless local agencies will take  our flour   purchases   on   a   hand   to   advantage of the opportunity to stock  mouth basis.    On   the  "ther hand, in   up :n bran and shorts, orvvhat wiii  view of the crop  conditions  that prevailed in the wheat growing provinces  during tKe past season it seems fairly  certain that the present price of $5.40  will be  the lowest for another year,  and it seems more than probable that  tne price will advance during the next  six months to a point which will make  the present purchasing of flour a good  investment.  This, however, is possibly the least  important reason why every home  should haye an extra sack of flour.  At the present time, and during the  past season, Creston distr ct has required at least one ear per week to fill  its needs in flour and feed, or nearly  double the amount that we have used  other seasons. In virw of this fact  someone deserves considerable credit  . f <>r ^thers,^  'schedule tuncl But at. that it would  seem as if we are asking just a little  too much of of local buying agencies  and of the transportation compunies  if we expect this condition to continue  throughout the winter  ire meeting  once a week at. Airs. Gilbert's home to  sew. They haye formed a class and  are doing some very nice needlework.  They plan to have a sale of work in a  f-^w weep-s  Contractor Dicken has about finished the foundations of the new high  level bridge and expects te> be pouring  the cement for the pillars by early  next   week.     He is emnlov-iTigr ���������.������ wam  about eight men.-  Provincial works engineer Ramsay  of Nelson was here on Tuesday taking  a look at operations at the new high  level bridge for which tenders were  called early this month. Guesses as  to the cost of the structure complete  place it at not less than $20,000.  connection -with the purchase of part  of the Dr. Wells ranch by Mr. Cockle  of Lethbridge.  R. Stewart has just finished build-r  ing a frost proof house over "his water  tank, which will ensure his water supply at the house in the coldest weather.  /Public school inspector Calvert of  Nelson was here on his official visit  this week, and his report on Principal  McLean's work is a good one.  Prank Simister had the bad lnck to  be kicked by a colt on Tuesday, which  cost him a couple of teeth, and necessitated a hurried yisit to Dentist  Lillie at Oreston.  The deer in the Corn Creek country  are stepping lively this week. Messrs.  Dick Smith. Boydell and Tom Midford  are out on their annual hunt and have  teams ordered to bring in three carcasses each early next week.

The cold spell of a week or two ago  caught a Creston car of flour and feed  and delayed it:-, arrival twelve days;  this in spite of the fact that between  four and five dollurs were expended on  telegrams in an attempt to trace it  and hasten its arrival. Twelve days  in November might mean twenty days  in Janu.-.ry unele.r blizzard conditions;  and one car might happen to be increased to three���������all of them, much  needed. Under such conditions by  having an extra sack of flour on hand  householders might save themselves  at least considerable inconvenience.  What 1ms been said regarding the  Hour situation applies to a certain extent to feed. It seems very sound advice that everyone sheaild keep a re  serve stock on hand to protect poultry, hogs and cattle from showing the  inevitable loss which two or three  elays' feed shortage always means.  Facilities for storing feed in Creston  have been increased very little during  the past, year.

Tears  filled Ruggles's eyes as Pembroke described the end.  "And now, old chap," said Pembroke, in a brisker tone, "prepare  yourself for a shock. I have some  very wonderful sews for you, and  you might as well hear it from me  now as later from the lawyers. The  old gentleman has left you a pot of  money."  Ruggles turned his head slowly to'  stare at him.  "What!" said lie. "Left me a pot  of money?"  "Just so. Roughly speaking, I  .should say you'd inherit about halt  a million pounds. My congratulations.    I'm jolly glad."  Ruggles stared at him dumbly.  Half a million pounds���������in the neighborhood of two and a half million  dollars ��������� His face went suddenly  pale, and bc leaned back in his chair,  breathing uncertainly.  "Among other things," went on  Pembroke, in his pleasant, quiet  voice, "this place is yours. I wouldn't count too much on that, however,  This palace, and a comparatively  small balance in the Ottoman Bank,  is all that he's got-in Turkey. Hamid  Pasha hadn't any too great confidence  in the commercial honesty of his compatriots. Come, uow, buck up, or I'll  have to give you a squirt of strychnine."  For Ruggles's face was still white  and his eyes fixed and staring. He,  (Ruggles, a millionaire! The idea was  incredible ��������� almost terrifying. His  brain could not appear to grasp it.  "But why���������why did he���������"  "Why did he leave it to you? Oh,  that's not such a hard one. You  saved him from a rotten, nasty death,  and came jolly near getting scragged  yourself doing it. You sat tight  when his own crowd bolted, and your  Oriental isn't the chap to do things  by halves when it comes to paying  off a score, whether on the credit or  debit side of the slate. Then afterwards, when he had you brought  here, he got jolly fond of you, all  outside the obligation. He had no  heirs, and I faucy hc was rather a  lukewarm Mussulman, for all of his  religious observances. Bit of a freethinker, Hamid Pasha was. Came  from living so long in England, I  presume.    Well, feeling better?"  The color was returning to Ruggles's hollow cheeks and a brightness  was growing in his eyes. It was rather more than a brightness, in faci,  for as Pembroke glanced at him critically, they filled with tears. It is  probable that Ruggles was at this  moment more affected emotionally by  the kindness of his benefactor than  at the thought of the great fortune  to which he had so marvciousiy faiien  heir.  "Oh, I feel well enough," he answered, trying to smile. "Just sort o'  ---sort o'���������"  "Sort of flabbergasted," Pembroke  supplied. "Don't blame you a bit. I  was a bit bowled over myself this  morning, about an hour before he  died, when he gave me this���������"  Hc held out his strong, sinewy  hand, and Ruggles saw upon the third  finger such an emerald as might have  ransomed a rajah. The great stone  was flawless as a pool of the sea in  a green  grotto.  Pembroke reached into his inner  pocket and drew out a letter.  "Hamid ..Pasha asked me to give  you this," said he, and rose. "Got to  be off now. I'll run over from time  to time and sec how you're getting  on. Good luck and congratulations  and all that sort of thing. Remember  you're master here now, so give your  orders."  He clapped his hands, and Mustapha came to conduct him to the land-   -tacL*  rnozone  You  Are  Cured  Without Using Drugs  rxC  You breathe through the Catarrhozone inhaler medicated air that is  full of healing, soothing balsams,  full of piney antiseptic essences that  resemble the air of the pine woods  in the Adirondacks.

Ruggles, holding the letter in  his trembling hands, leaned hack in  his chair and stared out across the  shimmering  straits.  "Gee!" muttered Ruggles. under his  breath. "Me master here���������give my  orders, gee!"  He   looked   about  at   thc   gardens,  then at the palace itself, a house    of  some  considerable  dimensions  which  was   charming  rather thau  imposing,  and thc general scheme of which suggested a combination of Italian    and  New Turkish Renaissance with a suggestion   of  the   Byzantine  in   its  decorations,  there    being many ornate  traceries copied from pleasing forms  of  animal  and     vegetable life, these  embellishments apparently worked in  as   opportunity   offered.     There   was  room  for technical     criticism where  purity   of   style   was   concerned,   but  the  general  result     was  unquestionably pleasing, for thc Turks have always been masterly appreciators, taking thc best from other schools and  combining   all   in   harmonious   effect,  precisely as one might edit some anthology of verse.    Hamid Pasha was  such a critic and his'.house a combination   of   much   that   is "exquisite   in  ahead a charming bungalow of considerable dimensions and Saracen-  csquc architecture. Windows and  veranda were closely latticed, and thc  whole was a bower of rose ramblers  and grapevines. But when he had  advanced halfway down the arbor,  thc white-clad, turbaned figure of  what appeared to be a manservant of  some description had slipped from the  shrubbery and, with a polite salutation, had signified to him that he was  trespassing. Ruggles, much confused,  had retraced his steps, nor had he  mentioned the incident to his host.  He knew enough of Turkish domestic  life to appreciate that there were in  all such establishments as this precincts to which a guest was not supposed to penetrate.  "Well, no doubt Hamid Pasha had  made provision for his household, and  all whom it might contain. Ruggles  decided that it was not worth while to  fret himself over conditions of which  he had been allowed to remain in  ignorance. Possibly some instructions  as to the future direction of the estate might be contained within the  letter. If not, the lawyers would explain matters in greater detail. He  broke thc wax seal, and, with an emotion akin to awe, set himself to examine its' contents.  (To Be Continued.)

Pacific Whaling  Seventy Mammals Were Secured By  a Single Vessel  r- With the arrival in Victoria recently of three whaling ships, thc season  has come to a close after a most successful period of fishing. The leading boat sesured seventy mammals,  which is considered a good record.  There was an unusually large number  of sperm whales caught, averaging  about thirty feet each, as against the  sixty feet full grown whale. Many  sulphurs were also shot, running  eighty-six feet. One mammal measuring forty-four feet in girth yielded  162 barrels of oil.  Plans Large Plant  Smelter  Company  Contemplates  Installing A New Concentrator  At  Rossland, B.C.

Ruggles certainly had no fault to  find with Hamid Pasha's palace, and  thc sudden knowledge that it was all  his, even though it were to be taken  from him the next week, filled him  less with pride and delight than with  a certain sense of shyness. Hc felt  as though the ancient walls and terraces were looking at him with a  sort of contemptuous amusement as  if to say: "What! thou master here,  thou flea from thc belly of the raw  and shaggy Western world? Thou  master of us,���������these terraces from  whose proud heights Osman I.,  Ghazi thc Victorious, son of Err-To-  ghrul Sha, first looked with conquering eyes on the ancient city of Constantino? Thou, the master? Mash  Allah, go hide thyself in a hole!"  But aside from tins sudden diffidence, there was another matter to  which Ruggles's mind passed uncomfortably as he sat there holding Hamid Pasha's unopened letter, which  for some reason he rather dreaded  to read. Though Turkish clie-uette  had made the mention of such a matter impossible, Rugglcs was strongly  of thc conviction that, despite his  age, the kindly Turk had maintained  a luu'cui.

Ov..l-tr  ���������tr  When you go to a physician to be  examined for any heart trouble, one  of the first questions he asks is: "Arc  you short of breath?"  Now, when the heart becomes affected, there ensues a feeling of a  choking sensation, a shortness of  breath, palpitation, throbbing, irregular beating, smothering sensation,  dizziness and a weak, sinking, all-  gone feeling of oppression and anxiety.  On the first sign of the heart becoming weakened or the nerves unstrung, Miiburn's Heart and Nerve  Pills are just the remedy you  quire.

Land   for   Stock   Raising   May  Obtained Under a Twenty-  Year Lease  A number of prospective ranchers  and stockmen of the southern slates  have made inspection trips to the vast  territory   oi  uncultivated  land  north  of Battleford,  Saskatchewan,   within  the last three weeks  as a result of  the arrangement recently made by the  federal government, whereby land for  stock raising and mixed farming may  be obtained  under   a   twenty    year  lease.   Only such land as is unsuitable  for agriculture and that lies beyond  the range of settlement is subject to  re- J this  twenty-year lease.

ORESTON, B.C., FRIDAY,  @ ami OUsmrvifise  A well-known British scientist is  r-eported to liaye discovered that  the world will come to an end this  year. While we are not taking the  prophecy seriously ourselve we  commend it to the serious consideration of those of onr readers whose  subscriptions are in arrears. Folks  who are behind ih their dues to  local papers are liable to fare badly  at the supreme court that will open  short lny after Gabriel blows his  trump.  Comparisons may be odious but,  at times, they are none the less  comforting. Just now with both  the federal and provincii authorities threatening all and sundry  with divers penalties if the3T fail to  make their incomo tax returns in-  stanter, taxes and taxation are of  no small concern. In the Valley  the rate for all purposes is 18 millsr  At Penticton last year owners were  assessed on the 33 mill basis, and  for 1920 are facing a raise to provide for additional capital expendi  lure of not less than $250,000 for  pecessary and pressing public improvements, xjiit possioiy any satisfaction we may extract form such  c -triparison of our condition with  that of the Okanagan metropolis  will be only temporary. Penticton  is only experiencing the growing  pains of a thriving fruit-growing  .centre such as Crestan is destined  to Ife���������and not so very many years  hence, either. So cheer up; the  worst is yet to come.  If, however,  the   the   basic  excuse  for this sort of sociability is to re  main    permanently  Editor    Sulli-  van���������\vill   have   to be  more circumspect in   the forming of the graceful   phrases  needful   in   reporting  such functions.      Recently in Writing up one of these affairs in honor  of a couple  of   members of a girls'  club the   Courier inadvertently remarked   that   it was  arranged   to  afford the  brides-elect oppottunity  ''to   say goodbye   to  the club and  future happiness."    Over the portals of   hades, old-time philosophers  have it, i.s to be seen the inscription  'Abandon   hope   all ye who enter  here."    Surely the   Courier  would  not have   us  infer that something  akin   tp   this   unfortunate state of  affairs is  the common lot of   those  who embark upon the matrimonial  sea at Cranbrook���������or elsewhrre.  In trustworthy Dry Goods the trouble these days is not the selling of- the goods, but  the getting^of the goods to sell. In the/lines listed below we have been more than fortunate in securing stocks that we have no hesitation in recommending as to quality, and when  you see the goods we believe you will agree with us that prices are right.

For instance, in 1918 with a Dominion  quota of $500,000,000 Creston Valley was asked to gather in $40,000  as oiu- share: a ratio of $8000 from  here for every' bund ted million required by Canada. ' For 1919 the  loan was but $300,000,000 which,  on the same reckoning, would have  reduced Creston Valley's quota to  $24,000. For some unexplained  reason instead of lowering the quota in proportion to the lesser  amount asked, we were given a  quota 25 per. cent, in excess of  1918. If all other B.C. centres  were given a proportional boost  there is no kick coming. But if  some of our neighbors got a reduced allotment while ours was revised  upward some of the shine is taken  FLANNELETTE-35 in. v/id  _ ,35c. and 45c. yard.

As  regards purchases in ratio to population B.C. stands second with a  showing of one in nine, with Ontario leading with a ratio one in a  little over five. Including what  were termed "special subscriptions"  this province bought bonds at tlie  rate of $92.74 per head of citizens,  running tmro, witn iuontreai. ano  Toronto respectively in the lead. It  has been figured that bunching all  previous war loans with the present one British Columbians now  have at least $90,000,000 invested  injbhese securities, from which the  annual interest income is not less  than $4,500,000. Of this rather  respectable total about $200,000 is  held locally, which is not too had  for a community which in 1914 did  an export trade in orchard, field  farm and forest products of little  more than $50,000.

The Staples Lumber Co. at Wycliffe  have just opened a recreation room  for the men employed there, which includes a moving picture show.  Cameron~ brothers, near-Cranbrook  ranchers," claim to have cut five  tons  of-elover to the acre last season, some^  of the stuff measuring 52 inches.  Welsley Owen, who recently lost  his job due to the P. Burns Co. closing its shop atv Greenwood, will open  up  in  the  butcher  business at Trail.  Cran brook's chief of police is afraid  many burglaries will be committed in  that town if the merchants continue  to shut ofi all the stoi-e light every  night.  At Penticton the electric light plant  is 25 per cent, ovei-loaded, and tn ease  things off a bit it has been decided to  cut off the street lights except on tbe  main street downtown.  D. Bi-ander, an   old timer   in   East  '���������Kootenay, died suddenly at Fort Steele  iast week.    He was seized with heart  other four days by stage from Greenwood. There are only about a dozen  families left in the town.  W. K; Grubbe of Revelstoke goes to  Cranbrook to succeed B. E.

Gi-een wood. won so many ci-ests for  its Victory Loan flag that there is  scarcely room to sew them all on, It  won 21 of them, getting $68 000 instead  of the $10,000 asked of the town.  Revelstoke ladies are bombarding  tfcje city council to install a public library there. They figure 1200 books  a year would be sufficient���������getting  thenj in batches of 300 every three  months.  Mrs. Ralph Smith. B.C.'s only Indy  M.P.P., preached in the Methodist  church at Cranbrook last Sunday.  "Worshippers were packed in like-sardines, but at that many had to be  turned away.  ,^A churchmen's elub has been formed  in connection with the Anglican ..congregation at Grand Forks. Its chief  function seems to be dispense hospitality to strangex-s and newcomers after  the evening service.   -  Revelstoke ladies want the fourth-  year work added to the curriculum of  the Revelstoke high school. They  claim families are moving out of the  town to other cities where this educational advantage is available.  San Francisco capitalists may put in  a mill at Porthiil for the sawing of  'Cottonwood., It will have a capacity  of 30,000 feet a day, and it is estimated there is enough timber along the  Kootenav Riyer to keep the mill busy  for 25 years.  Penticton contemplates spending  $85,000 on the erection of a new central school, and is hoping the B.C.  government will come through with  at least $20.00 to help defray the cost.  About 500 children attend the public  school in tbat,town.  The commission earned on the sale  of "Victory Bonds at Trail was turned  over to the G.W.V.A. who, on tbe  strength of getting it, purchased a  $1200 bond themselves. The money  will eventually be put into the soldier'  memorial to be erected in that town.

When the Great War broke out  with such startling suddenness in  1914, Canada pledged its last man and  last dollar, if necessary, to uphold the  cause of justice and liberty and to  secure the triumph of thosc principles in which they believed, and  which they regarded as alone, making  life  worth  living.  The    Canadian   people    have    kept  faith.    Thcir  soldiers  bore  the brunt  of battle right up to the last minute  of  the fighting, the   Canadian   Corps  -constituting   the   storm  ti-oop?,      the  spearhead of the great allied advance  from Amiens and on  through.   Cam-  brai  and   Mons   to  victory.       Those  who   remained  at  home   served     by  work,    self-denial    and    saving,    aud  they   have   poured   out   their   money  in large  amounts and small in  order  io enable the government to pay the  country's   bills   and   liquidate   the   indebtedness it had contracted. Canada  still owes the money, but it owes it  to  its   own   people who   havc  loaned  it   to   their   country.  Canadians have done well and havc  no reason to belittle their own efforts or to be ashamed of the results  achieved by them. Thcy havc done  all, and more, than was asked of them,  ever, by  rcLirOu?  ��������� 11 y  '���������.'".>.!!  heir own government.

No  doubt some of this was inevitable  during the war, and Canada was not  the only country to make such mistakes. But it cannot go on. It must  be. checked forthwith, and a return to  financial sanity in Federal affairs  established. Canada's expenditure at  present far exceeds the revenue. This  condition cannot be tolerated much  longer. Thc two must be made to  balance. This can only be done in  one of two Vvays, or rather by a combination of both.  First and foremost, our national  expenditures must be reduced to the  lowest possible point consistent with  efficient administration. There is  room for the cutting off of millions  of expenditure, the stoppage of leaks,  and thc careful husbanding of the  country's finances. If this cannot be  carried lo the point where the ex-  ! penditure is reduced to present income, then thc income of the coun-  I try must be increased. This, of  course, means au increase of taxation,  and this the people must bear. -  The   second   duty   of   thc   Federal  Government, therefore, is to waste no  more     time   in  evolving    a   scientific  scheme  for   raising  the   revenues   required   to  cover  our  national  expen-'  This will  involve  the most  careful  consideration,     in order  that  no injustice be done to any class or  section of the country; in order that  thosc who arc best able to carry the  burden  shall  take   the heavy end of  it and those least able get off more  lightly; and finally, that the fiscal and  taxation policies be so  drafted as  to  promote   thc   maximum   development  of the natural resources of the country by which alone, can employment  bc  provided   for  all   the  people  and  our national wealth and prosperity be  increased.  Our present haphazard system of  Federal financing must be scrapped,  existing injustices and inequalities in  taxation removed, and a general readjustment and re-classification  brought about, and this m+ist be done  without further delay if disaster is to  bc avoided and the confidence of the  people not seriously undermined, and  unrest become more widespread.  The Canadian people, too, as individuals, must realize that our greatest national need today is a universal  adoption   of   thc   policy   of  increased  production   coupled  with  greater  economy in giving.    For a time at least  luxuries must bc reduced to a minimum and extravagant indulgences of  all kinds stopped.    Having made the  world  safe  for  democracy, wc must  uow set ourselves to thc task of making democracy safe in thc world, and  this can only bc done by the people  as a whole getting back to first principles   in   conduct,   in   living,   and   in  productive work.

German Excuse to  Hunnish Trick  A letter alleged to have been written by Admiral von Rueter to Mr.  Lloyd George, protesting against the  detention, of the' admiral who com*  manded-~the German fleet at Scapa  Flow when it was scuttled, and. other  officers o������ the sunken fleet, is published in the "Taeglische Rundschau."  Regarding the scuttling of the warships, Admiral von Reuter is quoted  as saying:  "I was obliged to assume that war  had again broken out, from the announcement in the British press regarding the rejection of the German  counter-proposals to the Peace  Treaty. Even if my idea that war had  again broken out subsequently proved  erroneous, nevertheless I acted in the  conviction that it was war, and I and  my subordinates, therefore, cannot be  treated except in accordance with the  usual customs of war."

Stewart, chairman of the Wheat Export Board,  that failure to move western wheat  in normal'volume was due to failure  of the railways to supply cars, the  administrative sub-committee of the  Canadian Railway Association has  issued  this  statement:  "Referring to the statement made  to the press by James Stewart, chairman of the Canadian Wheat Board,  respecting the movement of wheat to  the head of the lakes; in arriving at  his conclusion and in comparing this  year's movement with the record one  of 1915, Mr. Stewart has conveniently overlooked a number of important  factors.  "First ������������������ That while the crop matured earlier than usual this year,  threshing was delayed over a large  portion of the West and marketing  was unusually light until freeze-up  came.  "Second���������That winter struck the  prairies at least a month earlier than  Usual, with the inevitable result that  transportation was  slowed up.  "Third���������That as a result of the prolonged western coal strike the railways were called on to move more  commercial coal during the present  fall than in 1915, or any fall before  or since.  "Fourth���������That the railways had  this fall been called on to provide  transportation for a larger    tonnage j  NewjContract  iim~\ bv Rmlwavmen  Is Practically the Same as Obtains on  U.S. Roads  Winnipeg.���������The general committees of the brotherhoods of railway  trainmen and the order of railway  conductors have signed a new agreement with the C.P.R., which carries  an increase in wages for most of the  men in train ar-d yard service and  makes a.few changes in the rules governing working conditions ot yard  men, switch tenders now being included in the employees ..legislated  for.  The contract signed is virtually  the same as obtains on United States  roads, but the greater portion of the  increase in wages has been paid by  the company since last summer, the  men having had an interim agreement to that effect.

The announcement of the removal  of the restrictions, which was made  without warning: : in the - House 6f  Commons by the Food Controller,  came as a surprise to the members,  who greeted it with loud cheers.  The  liquor trade was equally  surprised and was besiege'd by the well-  to-do  among  the  public as  soon  as!  the unexpected news  spread.     Many  orders   of  from  fifty  to  a     hundred  dozen  were  placed     immediately,   in  addition to numerous commissions for  smaller  quantities.       Although  it  is  figured that enough spirits has been  thus freed     to     supply    every, man,  woman and child in the country with  thirty-six bottles apiece, it is doubtful if the public will find it easy at  present to increase consumption to a  great extent.    The government main  tains control  of the maximum price,  which for whiskey is ten shillings and  sixpence per bottle, and it is not believed that the dealers will sell much  below that figure, as. the existing high  duty will remain.  Moreover,   restrictions   on   distillation   during  the  war  and the  neccs-  Quebec Will  Discuss rroniOiiiuo  ��������� ��������� *-.

The appropriation of five million dollars for colonization, and the revision of the code  regarding legislation for large corporations.  It is expected, however, that there  will be a debate and probably a proposed amendment on prohibition, but  it is anticipated that the present regulation regarding the liquor tariff  will remain in force at least a couple  of years yet.  11      XL) ti  ,4.4.0  announce vi.

One of the Egyptian complaints  has been that Great Britain has published its intention to maintain a  protectorate, but has kept the Egyptians in the dark regarding what is  meant by a protectorate and how it  is to be carried on.  Great Britain's action in preventing an Egyptian nationalist delegation from going to the Paris conference to present grievances has been  another cause for complaint.
