A letter from Mrs G'taw and  family expressed appreciation for  the marks "of sympathy shown by  members ol the council during the  recent bereavement of the family.  A communication from  Winnipeg  solicited aid for the  starving   people  of. Serbia.    Referred   lo. the finance  ..committee.  Aid. McArdle  asked for  a   three  ...months' leave of absence, as he  desired   to  visit sick  relatives  in the  east.    Granted.  The chairman of the finance committee recommended that the- past  month's accounts be paid. Approved. He also stated that there  appeared to be some doubt as to  whether the city had a right to col-  . lect the accounts for treatment from  the patients confined in the isolation  -hospital, during the smallpox epi  demic last winter, and he' wished to  have the matter discusst-d by the  council.  Some correspondence on the subject that had paj-sed b-tween the ciiy  .. clerk and ' JS-urisier Stack-pool was  read. Mr.Staekpnol expressed the  opinion thai the city could not force  collection from patients residing in  the city,but if any had been broaght  in from outside the city the govern  meut would be liable for their treatment and maintenance while in the  hospital.  A letter from J. E Thompson,  M.P.P., on this subject, stated that  the chances of the government voting.a grant for the maintenance of  the hospital were not very good, but  if any patients had been brought in  from outside the city, the provincial  health department had offered to  assume the accounts of these per  sons...'  The members of the council all  expressed the opinion that it would  be too hazardous a risk to -attempt  to force collection of these bills, in  view of the nature of the legal advice submitted, and on motion of  Aid. Schnitter and McArdle, the  council decided to assume the   bills.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that some grading  had been done on" the streets in the  West end, and that the Bridge street  bridge required some repair.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 1Q, 1.918  The situation on the western front continues to improve. The Huns are still headed  in the direction of Germany.

A.D.MOREIS0N mESDAZ?^Gm  z"\  J  When, last winter, Mr. Hoover notified the  late Lord Rhondda,the British food controller,  that the United States had sent to Europe the  last 'of-.its'.'surplus wheat from the 1917 harvest, Lord Rhondda, it is said,, cabled back,  "We are beaten; the war is over." But we were  not beaten. Agr^at movement for economy, in  the use of wheat began, and the States have  alrcaaysent to their allies more than 100,000,-  000 bushels of wheat saved by the people  through cutting in half their customary con  sumption of white 11 our.' That shows how real  a part in the war one who ssems to be doing  nothing can take. The people of this . continent have saved the day, if .Lord Rhondda'  was right, merely by altering their diet. j  The German government must wish that it  had back the thirty-million-dollar "slush fund"  it raised in order to .corrupt American opinion  by buying newspapers like the New York  Mail. It is hard to see that any results. useful  to Germany were obtained by the expenditure,  and thirty million dollars would buy a lot of  ammunition to be used against the army of a  people that could not be fooled.  Singer^ Talks  The so-called free-fare trip to the Nelson  ' Chautauqua is the most expensive journey we  have ever seen advertised. For instance, if you  want a free ride from Grand Forks to Nelson  and return, you must purchase $66  worth of  goods in Nelson. If-any person in Nelson will  send us $66 for new subscribers" to The  Sun,  we will gladly furnish him  with a  round-trip  ticket from Nelson to Grand  Forks, and, besides, we will guarantee not to laise the price  of the paper.    The Chautauqua should be put  in the circus class- during war times. It is more  or less of a fake itself, and  a  first class  pro-j  moter of fakes. -  .

THE FOOD SITUATION  The following cable has been transmitted  to Canada from the food controllers' -conference in London:  "Resolved, That while the increased production of the United Slates and Canada- rendered it possible to relax some.of the restric  tions which have borne with peculiar hardships upon all our people, yet it is absolutely  necessary that rigid economy and elimination  of waste in the consumption and handling of  foodstuffs, as well as increased production,  should be maintained throughout the European allied countries and in North America;  that it is only by such economy and elimination of waste that the transportation of the  necessary men and supplies from North  America to the European front can be accomplished, and slocks of foodstuffs can be  built up in North America as an insurance  against the ever present clanger of harvest  failure, and the possible necessity for huge  emergency drafts to Europe; and further, that  we can not administer the food problem on  the basis of one year's war, and that we must  prepare for its long continuance if we are to  assure absolute victory."  The conference was held- on July 22 and  the food controllers of Great Britain, United  [States, France and Italy were present. Most  encouraging was the report as to ihe success  that has been achieved by the efforts'of Canada and the United States to tide over the extremely critical period which set in at the beginning of the present year.

You simply apply a few drops of  freezone on a tender, aching corn and  soreness is instantly relieved. Shortly the entire corn can be lifted out,  root and all, without pain.
