Hunter, who was  killed in action on October J, 1918.  "On that day the battalion was  engaged in very strenuous lighting  north of Cambrai near a little village named Rlecourt, and it was  here that, gallantly playing his part  in __the _batile._your_son__made _the-  suprcme sacrifice. He was struck  in the head by a bursting shell,  which' caused instantaneous death.'  I am able at least to give you the  consolation of knowing he suffered  no pain. His body was later laid  to rest in the ground he had so  nobly helped to win.  "If he left any personal bclong:  ings .same will reach you throuyh  ollicial channels. Tt but remains  for mc to lender my sincercsl sympathy. I well realize in lhc writing  of Ihesc Idlers how bitter has been  Ihe .sacrifice required from the women of the Empire.

Anolher leller from his platoon  officer gives  further particulars:  "Long ere this you wiJI have had  the official notification of your son s  dcalh. but il may afford you sonic  consolalion lo hear from one who  was closely associated with him.  He was in my platoon in the 102nd  Battalion where his fine disposition  and splendid character endeared  him to mc as indeed il did lo all  who came in ^contact wilh him. He  was hit and killed instantly near  Cambrai on October 1st. A finer  lad never wore khaki nor gave his  life for, his country.

Thoy havc nothing in common with those who end  in their beds a life that is worn out, a life almost always  too long and often useless. Death, which everywhere else  is I)ut the object of fear and horror, bringing naught bul  nothingness and despair, this death, on the field of battle,  in the clash of glory, becomes more beautiful than birth  and exhales a grace greater Ih-in lhal of love.

They are not beneath the earth, in thc  depths of their tombs; they lie deep in our hearts, where  all that they once were will continue to live and to act:  and they live in us even as we die in them.

The reason for this regulation of  the Paper Controller is that it is the  practice of some publishers to send  thier newspaper until ordered  ������������������ stopped," ancl. tbis practice frequently means a failure to collect  anything for subscriptions in"' arrears, ih which case there.is a virtual waste of paper. It is to prevent paper waste that the new regulation has been decided on.  , The manufacture of paper con-  . sunies labor, wood, coal, chemicals  and transportation facilities, and.  every ton of paper saved means  just so much more labor, raw materials, chemicals, fuel and transportation, available for urgent war  needs. For these reasons the Government insists that paper shall be  saved, and proposes that only those  who pay for their publications  shall receive them.  This order will leave the newspaper publishers po choice, in the  matter. W-j must therefore insht  upon all subscriptions to the Commoner being paid up.  We are cleaning up our subscription list this' week and will be  forced to send final notice to f,al|  subscriptions in arrears.  All subscribers must pay up.  Those in  arrears will have the  Commoner discontinued.   We have  ' no option in the matter.   The Post-  office  Pepartment   will   lefutse  to   deliver.newspapers ..where .the-subr   scription expiry date is three  months in arrears. Pay up now  and make a discontinuance.of your  paper unnecessary. We do not  wish to cut off a single subscription. We want all our friends to  remain with us.

Charles Hansen  Towne  in the  American Magazine.  The  action  of  the  Canada  Food  Board in summarily cancelling thc  order requiring the use of substitutes is creating hardship on.grain  dealers  and wholesale grocers.    It  is pointed out that it was several  months   after   thc   substitute  order  was   made  effective   iu   tlie   States  that   similar  action   was  'taken   by  Ottawa,  but  when  thc   order  was (ness.  cancelled   in   the   Stales   the  ndian   authorities   took   immed  I action  from following his occupation at  full working capacity, ln adjudging this disability the pension commissioners or their representatives  are supposed to classify the disabil-  ty in accordance with thc degree in  which it prevents his earning his  living in the common labor market.  Jf this precept is practised why is  it that we find men who cannot  raise their right arm to the level of  their shoulders, as a result of terrible-wounds, cut off from a pension altogether? Why "is it that  men who can"scarcely hobble a half  mile are granted the prodigal sum  of $2.50 monthly���������������������������for six months?  Is there any physical disability  from wound or gas that is sufficiently serious to bring about a  man's discharge on the grounds of  "physical unfitness" that is legislated for with a pension of $2.50 a  month? Is not that sum moie in  the nature of an insult than a pension to a.man that'has a wife and  family depending on his earning  power in any market?  Thctrc   is   another   very   serious  side to lhe question.    The military  authorities   discharge   no   man   cx-  ceot on account of physical unfitness.

It was gener-  aJly=-understood--that^some=-recon-^  dite reasons of censorship made it  advisable to give no oflicial con-1  firmation  of  what  was  generally  known, and must have been known  even- in  Germany.    The  ways  of  censorship  being  past   all  -understanding, the world considered reticence about the Audacious affair a  vagary and let it go at that, though  for acinic it had a tendency to lessen confidence in the official British  reports. This confidence,  however,  was soon restored as the British rc-|  ports   unhesitatingly   told   of  their J  losses, but this only added  lo thc  mystery surrounding the Audacious.)  It was even suggested  lhat Prince  Battenburg    had    somc    traitorous  connection with the affair, and his  retirement   from   the   British   navy,  helped to keep the rumor in circula-,  tion.  The. original purpose of the secrecy remains a mystery, but it is no  more  puzzling  than  the  fact  that  one  of the  first  oflicial   acts  after,  hostilities ceased should be an ad-'  mission of the loss of this all but  forgotten   battleship.
