FROM THE  "The  German  hand for peace."  pleople  offers  PROMINENT PEOPLE  On one ocsasion,  when he hadn't  any -job,- any moneyrpr --any "-break  fast,   Arthur -Somefs -Roche,-  the  writer and   humorist, sat   down at  his typewriter and  dashed   of   two  pieces of topical verse. There was an  editor on Park Row who sometimes  paid  spot  cash.    But half an hour  later Roche was  quitting  that   editor's sanctum ''still without the pros  pect of breakfast.    By the  time  he  had   crossed   City   Hall park, how  ever, his spirits were  perking up���������  already some new verses ran through  his head.  Hustling into the Astor  house he got them down on   paper,  and  in   a  nearby   newspaper office  borrowed a typewriter.   In   twenty-  five   minutes   he   was back  in tha  same   editor's   office   and had exchanged his  new   "pome"   for   %!.  Next day he landed a new job.  who be|Vf; life as a young  reporter,  made steady headway, and present  ly as editor of theJMunicipalJJournal  in London showed a grasp of public  affairs and a capacity in administration which  eventually   took him to  the   editorial   chair   of   the  Daily  Chronicle.    He   had   a wide experi  ence   in   his   younger days, for he  served.in Edinburgh, London,   New  York and Paris.    For a  generation  the   Daily   Chronicle   had   been  a  famous   property.    He   had as his  friends    philosophers,     statesman,  authors, and the captains  of  indus  try   It is safe to say that no British  editor in recent times had so wide a  rang6 of respect from leaders in  the  various fields of thought and action.  New German Government  Made Strong Plea to the  Men in the Trenches  for Peace  Herbert Adams Gibbons, author  of many important current works,  has been making a speaking tour  among the munition workers of  central France, His subject was  American ideals and" America's.participation in the war, and he talked  in the course of the^tour to audiences totaling about 40,000 workers.  Samuel MerwLn, the novelist is  quoted as saying: "My professional  goal is to learn as much as possible  of the business of writing. I would  like, too, before I die, to succeed in  depicting one or two or even three  or more real characters in fiction. It  would be a great privilege."  Lord Ruthven, eighth baron, pro  vost marshal in London and   an ex  tra king's   messenger, ih July  flew  from   France   in order  to celebrate  his eightieth birthday  with   friends  in- London.  Major General Edward M. Lewis,  who commands the Thirteen{division  of the .National Guard troops from  the  Carolinas   and  Tennessee, is a  native of Indiana and a West Pointer of the class of 1886.    His   entire  career   up   to   the   entrance of the  United into the   European   conflict  was in the infantry, he having served at various periods in the Eighth,  Eleventh,    Sixteenth,    Nineteenth  arid Twentieth regiments. He served  in the Spanish war as a captain   of  the Twentieth  infantry   and in the  Philippine campaigns as a battalion  commander of the Sixteenth infantry. General   Lewis was a classmate  at West Point of General  Persking,  and these twh officers have been the  closest of friends during their entire  army career.    He is fifty-five years  years of age.  Who Told Yon That?  The band of a famous English regiment was playing at a Yanks' camp  somewhere in Blighty. The soldiers  were walking round and round, as we  do round a bandstand. An English  visitor was enormously impressed by  a handsome N.C.O., who bore himself like a young god and wore a uniform which 'would have made a Sack-  ville street cutter feel he knew nothing of smart tailoring.  "Who is that N.C.O ," asked   the  visitor, "dressed like a dandy."  "He," answered the American pri  vate, "is my top sergeant���������the gink  who owns the war."  General Petain's stoneiike expression frequently relaxes into a rather  whimsicel smile, and,on occasion, he  can speak with warmth of eloquence  which, devoid of all fine phrasing,  nevertheless carries his every word  straight to   the heart.

Robert Campbell, who went  overseas with the 131st battalion, in  a letter to his family in this city,  enclosed a Hun 16th dodger, which  is reproduced below. The dodger is  printed in English on one side, the  reverse side being in French. These  bills, Mr. Campbell says, were  dropped down on him by the hun-  dreds from a German airplane on  October 28, 1918. We print it without comment:  "The German people offers peace.  "The new   German    democratic  government has this programme:  " 'The will of the people is the  highest law.'  "The new German   popular   gov  ernment   therefore   has offered  an  Armistice and   has declared  itself  ready for Peach on the basis of jus  tice and reconciliation of nations.  "It is the.will of the German peo  pie that it should.itve in peace with  all peoples, honestly and loyally.  "What has the new German popular government done so far to put  into practice the will of the people  and to prove its good and upright  intentions?  "(a) The new German government has appealed to President Wilson to bring about peace.  "It has recognized and accepted  all the principles.which President  Wilson proclaimed as a basis for a  general lasting peace of justice  among the nations.  "(b) The new German govern  ruent has solemnly declared us read  iness lo evacuate Belgium and to re  store it.  "(c) The new German government  is ready to come to an honest understanding with France about Alsace-Lorraine.  "(d) The  new  German   govern-  men has restricted the CJ-boat War.  "No passengers steamers not carrying troops or war material will be  attacked in future.  "(e) The new German government has declared that it will withdraw all German troops back over  the German frontier.  "(f) The new German government  has asked the allied governments to  name commissioners to agree upon  the practical measures of the evacuation of Belgium and France.  "These are the deeds of the new  German popular government. Can  these be called mere words, or bluff,  or propaganda?  "Who is to blame, if an armistice  is not called now?  "Who is to blame if daily thousands of brave soldiers needlessly  have to shed their blood and die?  "Who is to blame, if the hitherto  undestroyed towns and   villages  in  Storage Losses in  Apples Due to Fungi  [EXPERIMENTAL FARMS NOTE ]  1 Storage   losses  are   generally   explained as the result of improper storage conditions.     This  is  no doubt to  some   degree   correct, and when   the  losses   occur   in   cold   storage houses  something is generally amiss and neglect   has   occurred     in    maintaining  proper conditions.  But one must  ask,  Do apples which are  properly   stored  not suffer from rot?    The  answer  is  simple enough: Apples will.keep almost  indefinitely up to the  time   when   a  slow   maturing   process���������which   is a  chemical process���������changes   the   composition, and naturral collapse   of the  fruit takes place,  providing   they  are  absolutely    sound    when     placed   in  storage.  The losses in  storage   amount   annually to many thonsands of   barrels,  simply because apples showing   blemishes   of   one   kind  or  another  are  stored with sound  ones.    The   apple  scab is one of the most cammon agents  giving   rise to  decay of fruit kept in  storage.  As long as the   temperature  of   the   cold ' storage  is   kept low���������  about 32 deg. F. or close by���������no   rot  is likely to  show.    But shonld such  apples reach the vendor or   the   consumer, the trouble will begin as   soon  as the temperature changes.    Any injured or scabby surface of an apple is  quickly invaded by the common fungi,  such   as   pink   rot, blue mould, etc.,  and once these fungi commence   their  destructive work, a  barrel   of   apples  is often destroyed more quickly   than  it could be eaten- by an   average sized  family.   As soon as the rot is observed  in   a   barrel,   prompt  action is called  for. Out with all the apples; throw the  bad ones right out, save what can   be  saved   of  partly  s-puiled fi uit for immediate use, wipe the sound ones with  a dry cloth and store them in   a   well  ventilated but cool    place,   examining  them from time to time.    One   rotten  apple   in   a   barrel  will start all the  others to rot in no time.  From the above it will be seen  that, while improper storage conditions���������and once in the hands of the  consumer a barrel of apples will rarely find proper, i.e., cool, well ventilated, but particulorly, uniform tern  peratures���������have some influence in  starting the rot, if the apples are iu  good sound condition when placed in  storage, the consumer will not so  likely be the loser���������and ho generally  is. The time will come when the consumer will be allowed to deduct from  his bills thc losses which are duo to  the negligence of others, particularly  at a time when high prices prevail.  Owes It to the Men Who  Fought to See That No  False Interpretation Is  Placed on Their Ideals  Washington, Dec. 2.���������In his annual message at the opening of congress, President Wilson gave his reasons for attending the peace conference as follows: "The gallant men of  our armed forces have fought for  ideals they knew to be their country's  ideals. I owe it to them to see to it  that no false or mistaken interpretation be put upon them. It is now my  duty to play my full part in making  good what they offered their life's  blood to obtain. I can think of no  call to service which would transcend  this."  Democratic members and large  groups iu the galleries rose and cheered as the president concluded this part  of his address.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, DFCEMBER 6, 1918  Announcement  is   made  that the government  will  inaugurate  a  war savings stamp  ��������� campaign. The first war  savings  stamp  has  just been issued to his' excellency the governor-general.    The government will become the  repository ofthe notion's savings up to a total  of fifty million dollars. Savings will be placed  with the government by means of war savings  stamps.   The  stamps are to be redeemavle in  1824.   They are to be sold by the government  at a price which works out to an interest rate  of somewhat better  than  4| per cent compounded semi-annually or 5  per  cent simple  interest if computed at the end of the period.  Thus in December, 1918, or January, .1919, a  five dollar war savings stamp may  be  bought  bought for four dollars.    After January  the  purchase price of a war savings stamp will be  increased month by month, but at the end  of  five  years from  December,   1918, all .stamps  will be redeemed at S5 cash.   Stamps of lower  denomination, to be known as thrift  stamps,  will be on sale.  When sixteen  of them   have  been accumulated they can be exchanged  for  a war savings stamp worth five dollars at the  end   of the  period.   The  plan is expected to  work out to the great advantage of  both  the  people aud the nation.  patriots has  been   started', by  the American  Red Cross society. It enrolls these boys and  girls as junior members, and  announced   recently the close of a  prize-winning . furniture  competition in which these members took part.  Red   Cross  convalescent  houses  were built,-  last spring, in fifty camps and cantonments in.  the United States. These were to be used as  rest homes by those men who have been either'  ill  or wounded  and  are not yet sufficiently  strong to return to active service. High school  boys and girls were asked to design and  fur  nish working drawings for the furnitvre  used  in  these  rest houses.   Two boys from Nashville, Tenn., one from Chattanooga, one   from  North  Carolina and  one from New Haven,  CoiTn., received prizes on draftsmanship.    In  the list of prize winners of design appear  the  names of one girl from Mount Vernon,   N.Y.,  two boys, from the same  place  and  one  boy  from New Rochelle, N.Y.    A Mount Vernon  boy took the one prize offered.for both design  aud  draftsmanship.    A  Red   Cross seal with  the name of the school construcing the furniture will be placed on the back of each piece  of furniture placed in the homes.

D.MORRISON ,EWEGKSiICIAN  ^  J  By thrift and industry the French people  paid over the huge war indemnity of 1870 to  Germany in an incredibly short space of time.  The same thrift and industry, if exercised by  Canadians now, will reconstruct and make  Canada a prosperous country. To achieve  this end there must be individual vigilance.  Watch food advertisements. There is always  a best and cheapest place to buy any commodity. By watching the advertisements of  foodstuffs in local papers, much can be accomplished. Merchants do not advertise unless  the price and quality of the^-goods are attractive; they know they can not retain the business of the public unless they "make good."  Help the most progressive merchant in. your  locality by following his advertised pi ices and  patronize him. Competition does more to  regulate prices than anything else.  With the return of peace our debt to Rou-  mania must not be forgotten. By entering the  war the little country on the Danube compelled Germany to withdraw thirty-four divisions on the western front, and thus, by relieving the pressure on the gallant French  army, saved Verdun. In eighteeu months,  fighting until it was completely surrounded  and Overwhelmed, it lost by war and disease  eight hundred thousand people, a number proportionately equivalently to the loss of some  eleven million Americans, says the Youth's  Companion. Now the time has come for the  fulfillment of its great desire to liberate from  the Austro-Hungarian yoke the three million  Roumanians of Transylvania, Bukovvina and  the Banat.  The employees of the Canadian government  number approximately 50,000,  not  including  postmasters. The average received by all from  the ������5000  to  the  S500  men and women, as  shown in the civil service memorial  of October 8, is $3.60 a day.    This is forty cents  less  than common day-laborer pay in  Ontario  today. For the government to  continue  paying  such wages to the men who are engaged in the  job of running'the country, from the heads of  great departments like  those of agriculture,  mining, fisheries, customs, finance, and  public  works   down,  without  providing a   general  measure of emergency relief is unexplainable.  Inaction   by  the  government, in  the face of  such a coidition of affairs and a  soaring  cost  of living which makes the situation more acute  every  day, would   be  unbelievable if it were  not true. The request for a war bonus of $350,  so temperately yet so firmly presented  to "the  government by its employees on the 8th, gives  the government an opportunity to prove  the  sincerity of its expressed belief that civil servants should be so treated that  they  will, be  proud   of their occupation.    Since  the War  Measures act gives council power to deal with  such cases at once, the people of Canada  will  see no reason or excuse for any postponement  in granting the full measure of so moderate a  request until the'next session of parliament;  Grand Forks Transfer Company  DAVIS # HANSEN, Proprietors'  GityBaggage and General Transfer  Office at R.

The Dominion of Canada second Victory  loan was oversubscribed by $176,057,867.  The total subscriptions were officially announced at Toronto as $676,057,867. The objective was $500,000,000. Every province  went over the objective. New Brunswick went  five and a half million over, and Nova Scotia  $10,600,000 more than its. quota. Prince Edward Island shows two hundred thousand  over its objective.

Of the proceeds of the  loan about $175,000,000 will go to meet floating indebtedness incurred in the provision of  credits for munitions and so forth during the  past few months. Of the remainder, between  two hundred million and two hundred and  fifty million dollars probably will go to the  provision of credits for wheat, foodstuffs and  other purchases  on  account  of the  United  SYNOPSIS   OF  LAND ACT AMENDMENT  Pre-emption now confined to surveyed  lands only.  ..Records will be granted covering only  land suitable for' agricultural purposes  and which is non-timber land.    .
