Our cousins across the  line have just closed their Fourth Liberty Loan.  Total subscriptions of $6,896,416,300 from more than  21,000,000 individuals is the record made, with several  outlying districts to hear from. The aggregate oversubscription was 14.14 per cent.  Our Dominion of Canada is asking for $300,000,--  000. It is the aim to overscribe this amount and  make it half a billion. If we do as well as Uncle  Sam's boys, well make it half a billion.

Canada wants not only the profit on  .ji_i-_------s}-^  will in Pritain towards Canadian products and thus assure our export busj-  ness for the future;  At the moment Great Pritain asks  for credit, asks Canada to sell her the  Eroducts of the farm, "on time."    To  old her trade, it is necessary to give  this credit.   This takes capital���������������������������immense capital.  For Britain's purchases from Canada  are huge, and these purchases must be  paid for in cash.  In these times, it is not easy even  for a nation as wealthy as Canada to  procure money. Certainly, no other  country can lend us money. The enly  way now open for Canada to secure  money is to borrow from the people of  Canada.  This is the reason for selling Victory  Ponds*  Can anyone deny the sound business  sense of this plan of protecting our  valuable market?,  from the standpoint of the man  who lends* w|jat better security could  he get for his money ? Where eJse  could he get a five and a half per cent.  return on such security?

And the money Canada borrows is  spent entirely in Canada���������������������������a very large  part of it for the very crops the farmer  pas to sell.  Therefore, if the Victory koan is a  success, business in .Canada must be  good, the nation must prosper and,so  be able to carry on a vigorous war  effort"in France and Flanders.  As a practical man you must  approve of the Victory Loan plan.  Then help it along. Put your own  money into Victory Ponds; urge your  friends to buy; work hard among  your loyal neighbors to make the  Victory Loan 1918 an overwhelming  success.

Do all things look  alike to Huns?  "Thc question instantly arises  whether lhc Gcrman Staff CArer  nerused the four librettos of  Wagner's Nibclung Cycle. Hunding Avas a shocking cur, and so  intended to bc played by the  poct-composer. Albcrich was a  sneak and a villain. Seigfricd  came lo a violeint and untimely  end. Brunhilda mounted his  funeral pyre and Avasi consumed  in the dairies. Wo tan is Hie  most unlucky choice of all.

NOTICE TO SUMMERS ON HARVEST \U%  Attention is directed to a recent announcement published  in the Press by the Military Service Branch, Pepartment  of Justice, regarding extensions to be granted to men  EXEMPTED AS FARMERS.  It is pointed out that this DOES NOT IN ANY WAY  AFFECT MEN WHO HAVE BEEN ORDERED BY THE  REGISTRAR TO REPORT to Depot Battalions and who  have thereafter received leave of absence from the Military  Authorities.  Once a man has been ordered to report for duty by the  Registrar he leaves the jurisdiction of the Registrar ahd comes  under that of the Department of Miiitia and Defence, and is to  be considered as a soldier. This applies to men of the 20 to 22  Class who have been ordered to report by the Registrar in  virtue of the cancellation of exemptions by Order-in-Council of  the 20th April last, as well-as to those ordered to report in the  usual way on refusal of claim for exemption, or on expiration  of exemption granted.  All 'men, accordingly, who have been ordered to report, and  are therefore SOLDIERS, and who have subsequently been  granted harvest leave by the military authorities, MUST,  NOTWITHSTANDING THE NOTICE ABOVE REFERRED TO, REPORT ON THE EXPIRATION OF  THAT LEAVE, unless they are notified to the contrary by  their Commanding Officer or by general notice published by  the Department of Militia and Defence.

THURSDAY, XOY- ?> 1918  RED TAPE  .Mluin..,  Red tape is mighty poor road-building material.  It does not fill ruts, gravel clay road-beds,  bloAv out rocks or build bridges. But red tape  is thc most costly part of the roadwork done under the present road-buikliug policy of our Provincial Government. We have under the present  system Road Engineeers and Assistant Road Engineers, eacliVvith a staff of otlicc help and a  weird amount of red tape lo wind, unwind and  rewind. The overhead cost ol lhis system, iu  salaries to engineers and assistant engineers, and  ollice stall' is so greal the governmcnl has no  to spend on" the roads,   The overhead eats  all up. ...  g The science of roadma'king by this corps of  engineers seems lo bc onc of guesswork. We  mound up dirt in the center of thc road, in summer this dirt is dust, in Aviuler mud, Any road  where ibc dust rises in a cloud who'll an automobile runs over il in the summer is a bad road, unscientific, unsubstantial, costly. Tbe road is being lifted inlo thc air and scattered over the landscape. It is a question of only a Jcav months or  years Avhen that road is well-nigh impassible.  We do not have lo drive far in the Okanagan  these days to prove this. And yet'Our Okanagan  roads have been good average roads as i'ar a.s average roads run. How long will il take us, under  the present "engineer" system, lo Avcar these  roads down -until avc havc nothing left but lhc  overhead?  llu  gOA-  dams  It  loan to the farmers. Before attempting  ernmental construction of the enormous  Avhich have been ccnslructed in recent years, the  Federal Governmejnt said io the individual states.  "If you Avill irrigate the lanes of your state, or if  there are private individuals" avIio will do th--  work, Ave Avill give you whatever land you desire  up to.onc million acres each, and set it apart for  two years Avhile you0try the experiment."  , Though this may seem to be an over-generous  method it has proved most successful in populating and developing iicav land. In doing lhis Avith  so kmsh a hand, the Government has been guided  by a purpose���������������������������-'the land given Avas to be converted  from wilderness into homes. TheTand AA'as given  to the homesteader Avilh a condition���������������������������the land  was to be used. Forests Avhich were being sAvept  clean or monopolized Avere held out for the mass.  Use. Use by as many as possible! And superior  use! The homesteader may haA'c 320 acres, if it  is dry farming or grazing laud. But he cannot  haA-e it as a speculation. Ii must be made a home  and brought into the body of thi country's producing area by cultiAration. The"American GoAr-  crnment Avas generous, but it had no intention of  being a spendthrift.  Contrast this policy with that folloAvcd by the  Canadian Government. Here avc havc tudncd  over to promoters for private speculation millions of acres of the best of our public domain.  This land is still being held by speculators and no  use is being made of it. In many cases these  speculators are nol even paying lhc wild land tax.  FLAG OF THE ALLIED WORLD  MUST PAY ITS WAY  At the prices for newsprint recently fixed by  the Paper Controller for Canada, the annual paper bill of the Okanagan Commoner Avill be  jumped up a Jew hundred dollars. Similarly the  ajnnual freight charges on this Avhile paper has  been raised "15 per cent. These two charges alone,  lo say nothing of other increased costs���������������������������:(labor,  fuel, eLc.)���������������������������will add considerably lo-oun weekly  publishing cosls, which we must collect from our  readers and advertisers.

Thc   day   following ihe second of these a young  j banker look me aside lo talk about  '.it.    He was  abort my own  age although    older    perhaps    in    experience.     He  was   a   non-church-goer  :������������������s a  regular thing, bul didn't mind  being    frank    abo-.il    these    things.  He said  among other things":   "You  ��������������������������� know an  old man  conducts a i'un-  eral   service   better  'than   a   young  (man.    Dcalh doesn't appear lo him  j as .such   an .n wfn 1   lb i ng.     He   has  (seen  his  friends pass, "and  he realizes better than-,some of us younger  j fellows do, IhaUdealh i.s something  l.lhat wails  for every  person  as he  {rounds some corner and  he knows  [that   it   may   be   any   corner���������������������������any  ] stage  of his  career.'   He is accustomed  to  the thought."-  Perhaps tlie mini.stcr and the  undertaker more than anyone else  in the community, realizes that  truilh. The undertaker sometimes  becomes calloused lo it.It's his business. The minister too sometimes  becomes professional to it. Put I  think that if he be at all true of  soul, his life becomes richer and  the unseen more real a.s he tries to  show others the Eternal Father and  the life beyond. Certainly death  becomes less and less a terrible and  also more and morc a wondrous  thing. It becomes just about the  same thing as the shedding of 'die  leaves iri the fall. That is not the  death of the tree; it or ly signalizes  the end of summer. But there will  be spring again, and the tree will  keep  oh  growing.  Familiarity with death i.; common in our day.

It isn't a matter  of when death occurs"; the big thing  is that the.life has beer, nobly lived.  And then there is the faith growing  ever dearer in distinctness lhat  life goes on. And thus the thought  of death gives place to the thought  of life.    "Death is swallowed up."  So   far as" wc  have  been  able  lo  learn   I he  local   epidemic  of  influenza has developed mild cases only.  Jn   other  places  il  lias becn   much  more severe-and many deaths have  occurred.     Jn   almost   every   paper  there lire-'rules given -both  for prevention   ancl   cure.     Bul   lhere   are  two   great   'IhoughlSi to   which  ;all  others   are   subservient:    "Do   not  fear it," and "Take sensible care."  Might   I   mention ' two   life-giving,  fear-banishing thoughts. First, consider what this life i.s for.    It is for  building the foundation of an eternal structure. We work beneath the  ground   as   it  were   and   while  we  r/e,joice An   the   sumriight,   still   wc  have not the glorious view we shall  have when we reach the surfr.ee of  the ground.    What we call death.is  the emergence at thc top.   It is possible of course to come to the surface without having done the work  and   then   it  may  be  that   the   intended plans will fall through. Put  meanwhile  it  is  ours to  obey  thc  Master Builder ancl prepare for the  emergence.    Second: I^earn to be a  worthy child  of the  great Father.  We   may   have   failed   as  servants.  But even the disobedient and wilful child���������������������������the prodigal who shirked  his duties���������������������������has a place La the Father's heart equal to the one who  builded industriously.    And .whenever   our   face   isN turned   to   Him,  whatever   we   have   made   of   our  past, there ils a place for us in His  home. __ And _if__thc__timc _comes_tp_  us   when   we   are   weighed   down  with    heavy    cares,    or   if   illness**  comes, and weakness, or doubt,  it  is slill our privilege to turn to the  divine   support   and   lean   on   the  Everlasting  Arms.
