The food line  is now threatened. The supply of  the Allies is in jeopardy. It is the  time for immediate reinforcements, by saving and production.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 1918  TAXING TO COVER DEPRECIATION  In thc auditors' report on the financial condition oi' the town of Enderby, for thc year 1917,  lhc point is raised of levying a lax sullicienl to  cover the amount oi' depreciation which is written oil", each year. This is not a new .question.  It is, in fact, a very old onc. Bul. the .bigness  of the point is more one 6J' theory lhan practice.  Under ordinary circumstances, there can be no  question as to thc correctness of tlie theory, and  it might also be a very proper and saJ'e policy to  follow in practice. But how many towns or  cilics do levy to cover depreciation? "There can  be no question about it: thc practice ol* -writing  oil' each year I'or depreciation musl. .eventually  reduce values, and iinally wipe oul thc buildings  entirely. .Theoretically, by lhc time a building  i.s twenty or thirty years old it isn't worth a cent,  lis entire value will have been written off under  lhc head of depreciation. The same with our  concrete sidewalks and macadamized streets.  Theoretically lhcy depreciate in value each year.  Bul actually the depreciation is almost nil!. At  all events, whether right or wrong in theory,  who would be disposed, in iinies like these, to  increase thc lax levy to cover such depreciation?  Thc fact is, without attempting lo dispute the  correctness of the practice of writing oil for dc-j  pi^daUon,^lha.Uif_Lhesa^  peace is procurable, either by a world or by  nalions or by individuals, save in thc realization  of lhc ideal: we shall never get on with less than  lhe best.

Irue.   why   persist   in   llie  theoretical  on surplus account?  .admitting thai llie lax lew should be  While thc world is busy talking peace terms,  and each side to the controversy is putting its  best foot forward in an effort to convince, public  opinion as to the justice of its claims; and, while  provision is being made in these peace terms for  Utopian conditions when the war is ended, what  do we perceive actually at work on the  human side of the people in all nalions? One  would think, after reading thc Utopian conditions prescribed in these prc-peacc negotiations,  thai certain legislation, and certain resolutions,  made by nalions, was actually going to change  the nature of man and woman on this good old  world. We are led to believe that if wc can impose on Germany our terms of peace, then everything is going to be lovely in this sort of Ci I' ly-  fiity democracy ofouis. "And wc do not doubt  that thc people of tlie enemy countries are led lo  believe the same thing about general conditions  which arc to prevail if the enemy can force on us  his peace terms. Both sides seem to forget that  human nature is the same to-day as dl was".in the  lime of Christ, and that "when thc devil is sick,  thc devil a sain I \vould,bc; when thc devil is well,  thc devil a saint is he." Wc are fighting to make  thc world democratic. Wc say we arc anyway,  and, believe il. Yet wc perpetuate the autocracy  of old, and persist in handing out and accepting  the baubles of knighthood, which have ever been  the recognized trinklcts of the "divinely appointed,"'" and the emblems of honor handed  down to whomsoever had the party pull or the  bacon. This is the material side of what thc  war mean's. - .       . .   -  . -Let us now look upon its meaning in a spiritual sense. Wc believe George D. Herron, in  his book, "Woodrow Wilson and the World's  Peace," has given the highest conception in this  direction.. This book reveals a new and wider  and deeper interpretation of the world war���������������������������and  one that all must recognize sooner or later as the  goal each nation, each individual, must aim for.  "For lhc moment," says Ihis -writer, "we can  only wait���������������������������wait with wonder and ^anguish���������������������������to  see "whether the present human night will darken  and deepen, or if some unforseen day df deliverance will break. It is. thc world's most breathless moment. The human race trembles in thc  balance. The war, if it continues, may slip Irom  lhe control of its makers and blasters. A turn  of some irresponsible hand, even an idle word,  may start the race, on its new and,, tremendous  upward or downward way. Either wc shall soon  be plunged into chaos, and lhe creation of the  world begin over again, with perhaps but a  human remnant in the Creator's] hand, or the  nations must conic to some swift resolution,  some divine determination, taking the course of  evolution in hand-- and definitely shaping our  common future according to a deliberate social  and spiritual choice. . . . .It is easy to  babble of Utopia in reply. Jt is the custom, of  cowards and cynics, of spiritual indolence and  social selfishness, |o deride as Utopian whatever  requires high risk and bold sacrifice. Rut what  else lhan the effort for our fife's perfectahijity  has yet proved practicable? Po wc call thc present way of carrying on our planeL a success?  Could llie mind of an insane god conceive a  niaddcr world than lhe one the practical man is  now furnishing us? Jt is time to ask. and lo  answer���������������������������lime to ta|<c knowledge of the unfailing  imbecility, of the cbblcss confusion and woe,  the unreckcnablc wreckage and waste, lhal forever course what wc purbfindfy regard as the  practical administration of our mortal affairs.

F. Gadsby, in the Toronto Saturday Night, says in part:  "Brotherly love has become almost a habit. The fifty-fifty spirit  runs like a golden thread through  the whole political and social fab-  _ric. The ravages of fraternity, "co  to speak, are plainly visible in the  House of Commons. E[c\v changed  the scene from diat I used to  gaze upon in the old, selfish days  prior to 1918 a  '"The people "have been trained  in renunciation.

There are more knights  than days, in Canada and there  always will be.  "Sacrifice is the word���������������������������"at least  so I infer from what Jones,-  M.  P.. Conservative-Unionist is saying. He dwells with pride on the  fact that Sir Joseph Flavelle,.-for  instance,.was   sacrificed  shortly  after Union Government took office. Yes. the baronet was  pried  loose and such was  the compulsion of  brotherly love    on   his  chastened  heart  that the    first  thing he  did  after he   was released  from"  his  cares  of  state  was to kiss Mr.   O'Connor,   who  brought   in  his famous   report,  and. send an Easter card to   Bob  Rogers, who was at the back  of  the whole   business.   More   than  that the fifty-fifty spirit got such  hold of him that the man who  didn't choke at eighty per cent  profit now confessed that he felt  pangs a"t taking forty. As naturally he would, because a gentle  soul like Sir Joseph just hates to  see anything cut in two.  "Jones, M. P. is himself an example of self sacrifice. He makes  his speech in ten minutes���������������������������in the  old days he would have taken an  hour���������������������������and thus he sacrifices fifty minutes of loose verbiage.'The  speech is fifty minutes better on  that account.' It is in line with  the general tendency to cut out  fats���������������������������whether of the head or  otherwise.
