While  nothing  oflicial  can be obtained and cabinet min- _  isters  positively  refuse  to  discuss   -���������������������������  the subject, it is believed that the  government   asked    that   the   list,  which   was  expensive,  be   not  an- .  nounccd for the present. The hon-  -ors^w4lU>eJielcUndelinitel>yvJT^erc������������������  is   a   growing    feeling,   which   aj|  share, .   that     titles     and     honors ,  are becoming too commonand too  numerous   in   Canada.    Thc honor  list,   which   was   prepared   under  the  new   British   Empire  order,  is  said  to have contained tlirce nun-  died   and   fifty   names,,   a   goodly   '  number   of   which   were   knights,  'it is said the cabinet ministers on  both sides agreed on the postponement   of ' approval   of   the   names.  The question of titles will be dis-    -  cussed this coming session ot  parliament,'and the cabinet may have  decided   lo wail until  after  it  has  obtained   lhe   views   of   members.  Capt. J.,.11  Burnham, member  for  West  Petcrloo.  has  announced  his  intention   of  introducing  a   bill   to  abolish   all  titles.     Five years  ago  he introduced a similar bill, but it  was laughed out of the House. Now  it   is   promised   serious   consideration  and  Capt.  Burnham wants to  act   an   expression   of   opinion   on  the   subject. "If   it   is   carried   the  Canadian   honors   under   the   new  order may  never bc announced.  Messrs. A. and H.

Is. there a sane man who will claim we  Anolhcr month has gone, and slill no progress  apparently lias been made in reopening the Enderby hospital. At the meeting oi" the "Woman's  Club Saturday last another resolution was passed  urging lhc provincial governmcnl lo give financial aid to tliis inslilulion, tliis inspite oi* thc fact  thai as long ago as May, 1917, llie government  definitely notified the'Enderby Hospital Board  that an order-in-council had been passed giving  the applicd-for aid provided lhc required reports  stipulated in the Hospitals Acl were furnished'by  lhc board. If these reports arc not furnished il  seems like clinging to a forlorn hope to expect  thc government too side-step the Act and give  financial aid to an inslilulion lhat has since becn  allowed to close ils floors and has been out of  existence several months. 7        "*  At thc same time there is an application before the board from Nurse S. McPherson in  which Mrs. McPhcrson undertakes .to reopen thc  hospilal free of any further cosl do the cily or  Uic hospilal board, provided she is given thc  building free of rent, water, light and fuel. And  Ave had at the lasl public meeting of the board  thc unqualified statement by Dr. Keith lhat Mrs.  McPhcrson is fully qualified to carry on Ih hospital work���������������������������as qualified as any trained nurse wc  could gel to lake charge of a hospilal of this size.  Dr. Keith is in a position to know. In addition  to this expert testimony, wc undcrsond a petition  is in circulation and has been generously signed  b}' Enderby citizens asking the city to accept thc  application of Mis. McPhcrson.  Then why continue the- donolhing policy in  connection wilh the hospital? Why prolong the  agony? Why send more petitions to the government when, as a matter of fact, we have not  complied wilh ihe first-requirement of thc Hospital Act? Why pile up more trouble  by perpetuating ihe-policy* which failed in-lhc  pasl and promises no better for the future?  Why aspire to the impossible ^hen lhc practicable is at hand, wailing for lhc doors to bc  opened? * Mrs. McPherson has nursed in Enderby and Armstrong dislridfor len years or more.  She is now located at Enderby and is the only  nurse at the present lime fallowing thc piofcs-'  ������������������3 IKE WORLD'S BEST CHEW  It is manufactured  tobacco in its purest  form.

In addition the hospital board raised. $25  a month to pay thc salary of an assistant,-tlie  nurse taking the hospilal fees as Jicr part. Mrs.  McPherson is asking no morc than has previously becn granted and is making no application for  salary for an assistant, which would .have to bc  raised if a graduate nurse were put in charge.  Under these circumstances can anyone'give a  good reason why Ihe cily should nol open the  hospilal doors and ask Mrs. McPherson to take  charge?

The   deficiency   has  been   onc   of   marketing   not   market,   and   lhc  troubles of our past arc fast being overcome by  closer co-operation among the farmers.   Is it not  ihis  spirit  of  co-operation   which   the  business  men of Enderby musl set an example in and aid  the growers in maintaining and developing?

It will  be sonic weeks before high Avalcr is reached, but  what is known as low water time has been  allowed to pass without the promised permanent  work being done. 13olh bridges arc liable to bc  washed out wilh the spring freshets.

TOROMTO.C"  MAKE PERFECT  ���������������������������   _'"   BREAD  WAST  MKES  "MADE   IN  CANADA  rEWGlLLETT COMPANV rJ  njii^ra  Food Value of Potatoes  0 ""^****"**"  People who wish to help in food  conservation   should   consider '.potatoes   as . a   partial   substitute   for  wheat (lour. Potatoes are the chief  "���������������������������staple    of    semi-perishable^ foods.  Canadians   do   not   cat   their   fair  share  of  potatoes  even  in  normal  times.     We   have   been'   largely   a  wheat,- beef   and   pork   consuming  people.    These staples are now required for overseas and it behooves  us   tu   substitute   olher   foods  *for  them  wherever possible.    We consume, perhaps, 2%  bushels' of potatoes per capita per year, or one-  ��������������������������� third of a pound per day���������������������������equal to  one, fair-sized potato. In some  European countries .one pound -,per  -. capita per day is consumed, ahd  in some districts .four-pounds per  day, and nearly twenty-five bushels per year. '.  Despite    thc   increase    in    price  since   the   war,   potatoes. ar<*   still  among the cheapest of foods. One  pound of roast beef costs ten  times as much as a pound of'potatoes, and 20 per cent of beef is  bone. Three ancl a third pounds  of potatoes supply 1,000 calories  of energy, at a cost of less than  ten cents, while about 2,500 calories arc required by full-grown  persins working indoors. That is  to say, if all foods were as cheap  as potatoes wc could live on 25  cents a day. Healthy men have  lived and worked on a diet of nothing else than potatoes, oleomargarine and a little fruit. Potatoes "contain ��������������������������� protein of thc very  best kind. They also contain miii-  eraJ salts which neutralize harmful acids in'thc body. The food  male rial in potatoes is 1)8 per cent  digestible.  Canadians have large supplies of  potatoes, carrots, onions and turnips, and by consuming these vegetables freely, they can economize  ���������������������������with bread.  More than 300 ways of cooking  potatoes are known. They combine well with many.flavors.
