Too many householders, as we  arc well aware have found advancing costs cutting down the'  margin of then savings.

Frequent have heen the answers written  in poetic strain to his most touching appeal. The  last to "take up our quarrel with the foe" has  been thc United States of America, and P. W.

"Monarchy    itself    is    sometimes hinted at as a refuge from
when I returned seven months
ago. "England," he says, "is
the freest country in the world.
They can fight there with less
suppression of opinion than any
where else. They can do new
things without sacrificing the
old." It is not a new quality in
the British. Even while they
fought Napoleon thc sterling insistence on free speech remained. No man came out of
tliat struggle with a finer glory
than Fox^ and hc insisted in
tearing olf the masks, as when
he said ironically . to Burke:
"Make peace with no man of
whose good conduct you arc
not satisfied, but make ah alliance with any man, no matter
how profligate or faithless hc
"bitimay be."    What kind of a Bol-
prcscnt position I could scarce-
lv be justified, were I to omit lo
raise a warning voice against
the approach of. returning despotism. It is not needed nor
lilting here that a general argument should be made in favor of popular institutions, but
there is one point with its connections not tb bc hackneyed as
most others, to which I ask

A few afternoons  spent nutting in the woods will  supply tlie home with nuts for  the winter and will save 'the  meat supply for onTr country's  defense. After gathering, the  nuts should be spread on tlie  attic floor or on shelves in a dry  arc producing best crops and  select seed from these as they  are harvested. When roots ol"  any kind are put in cellars thcy  should have plenty of ventilation, and in the case of pits only  a covering of straw should he  put on until the roots have had  a chance to sweat and cool off.  A great deal of loss is annually  experienced by overheating in  cellars and pits. Just after  harvesting good ventilaltioai is  essential in the storage of fruit  and vegetables and roots. The  humidity of the atmosphere in  the cellar should be closely  watched and if too dry the floor  should be sprinkled with water  now and again to prevent scald  and shrinkage.

GARAGE  stands ready to do���������������������������make prompt repairs when voxi need them���������������������������supply the  best accessories when vou   want  them.  Vancouver bus a number of  cases ol' Spanish influenza,. No  case has proved fatal as yet. and  the medical authorities have  decided upon thc most stringent  measures to suppress the bug if  there is thc first indication of it  becoming epidemic. The public  schools and theatres arc to bc  immediately closed and all public gatherings disallowed.  -The Provincial Government  has'"passed an order in council  giving lhc municipalities offthc  Province power to close all  theatres should the precaution  be considered advisable.  Tbe advice of lhc best physicians to everv person wlio may  catch the "flu" bug is lhat thcy  go straight home lo bed and call  a doctor. While thc virulent life  of thc disease is four or five  days, persons who contract it  arc warned nol to play the fool,  when they start to feel better.  Pneumonia follows in tbe wake  of Spanish grippe where the patient, is allowed to get up,and  move around. ^Whcn a patient  begins lo feci.belter thai is really the most dangerous lime,-and  every'precaution musl bc taken  as to keeping warm.' and jsvcll-  nourished.  Jf you catch the Spanish "flu"  you will bc laid up four or five  days. You will havc pains in  your head and eyes and all over  your body. Your eyes and nose  will run "wilh watcr and your  .eyes will bc so weak that you  will not be able to face the light.  Here arc somc rules given to  thc school children of Vancouver and which apply elsewhere:  Don'l borrow a handkerchief  from anyone:  Don'l lend your own handkerchief. -  Use your handkerchief when  you want lo cough, sneeze or  wipe your. nose.  Don't spil in school or in the  playgrounds  or  anywhere else.  Don't lake a -lick off anolher  child's sucker.
