In casting about for some method
of attack npon the cordially hated
profiteer we slipped, somewhat unconsciously, into the interrogative
mood which produced the question:
What makes a profiteer possible?
and tbis suggested the old college
Strike up the band,
Here comes' a sailor;
Cash on his hand,
Just of the whaler.
Wherefore we decided that what
makes possible the profiteer is the
number of approaching sailors with
cash in their hands; in short, the
American public bn shore leave
after four years of perilous voyaging.
Is the profiteer to be blamed for
striking up the band when he sees
a sailor with cash in his hand? Or
is fche spendthrift public, displaying its cash in hand,'to be blamed
for fche eagerness with which it
tempts natural cupidity?
We are aware there will be many
protests against this argument.
The protests will come from those
who honestly are endeavoring to
practice economy and sincerely are
devoted to prudent management.
To those we must say that there is
profiteering in the necessaries and
\we must admit that tbis profiteering is not induced by -he prudent
and economical. It is made possible by the imprudent and the
wasteful. j
It is unfortunate that the thrifty
should suffer for the extravagance
of their fellows; but this is what is
.happening., And it will, continue
until the extravagant learn - better
management or are compelled by
force of circumstances to forego
their prodigal habits.
As a nation we had better quit
playing the role of sailor. We are
seen coming,���Chicago Tribune.

It is said The Family  Herald

is not hard  to find.   To farmers
iu this Western County The Family Herald and Weekly Star is regarded  as  almost   indispensable
aud each issue is worth to  them
more than  the  hole year's subscription- price.     It   is a   most
wonderful production of a weekly
newspaper, family magazine and
agricultural   journal.      It   costs
only SL.2S a year  (after December 31st the price, we understand
will be $1.50) and each  subscriber receives free a large handsome
portrait of the Prince of Wales,
10 x 22 inches.   It is wonderful
value and no home in the West
should be without it.

they succeed in so convincing them,
thcir views will find concrete expression in thc laws of thc laud. But the

platform, and thcy arc fully deserving of the attention which has been
devoted to thcm, not only by the
press,  but the public generally.
Thc avowed object of this series
of addresses by Mr. Crerar was to
outline to thc people of the cities of
the West thc main principles of thc
New National Policy promulgated by
the Canadian Council of Agriculture!
the policies in support of which the j
farmers are uniting irrespective of
former party affiliations and to invite thc support of all classes, in city
as well as cpuntry, who believe in
the principles and policies enunciated
in  that  Platform.
It is altogether probable that Mr.
Crerar's series of meeting1; was also
prompted by the fact, lhat in thc
Cochrane by-election in Alberta Mr.
Wood, the U.F.A. leader in that province, look thc ground that the farmers' political movement was a distinctly "class" movement, and that
he advocated other groups and classes organizing along similar "class"
lines. This is in direct opposition to
the policy of the Canadian Council of
Agriculture and thc leaders of the
farmers' movement in Saskatchewan
and Manitoba. Thc Grain Growers"
Guide made chaste to repudiate the
views advocated by Mr. Wood, and
Mr. Crerar in all his speeches was at
great pains to impress upon his hearers the fact that the promoters of thc
New National Policy, so far from encouraging a "class" movement, were
openly and strongly opposed to such
a course.
Apart, however, from thcir primary object in explaining the Ncw National Policy to the people of urban
centres throughout the West, the
speeches of Mr. Crerar served a truly
national service in that hc gave utterance to timely words of warning
and advice, addressed particularly to
the farmers, but which have a much
wider application. Quoting from a
verbatim report of his speech at Regina, wc find Mr.  Crerar saying:
"In these changing times a greajl
responsibility rests on the organizeB
farmers of Canada. It rests_ on you
because from the very accident of
circumstances these things you hold
dear are being discussed from"one end
' of Canada to thc other. It is a time
when reason should guide your actions and course in every way. If
you do not, and you are animated by-
impulse alone, this splendid ediface
you have reared and the opportunity
-that-lies ahead ,of you will be largely
"I have observed in some quarters
what I would term fair weather Grain
Growers coming lo the front. By
that I mean not those who have stood
the heat and burden of the fight for
ten years, but men who stood aside
and let the fight go on, and now when
they see the tide is turning and running strong, want to throw their lot
in with" us. 1 have no fault to find
with it. ' You will not find your truest
and best councillor''; among such men.
If. you did you wouhl have found
them in  the movement  a*- the-first."
These words of warning and advice
apply to more people than the farmers. ~ There'is--a tendency, in thc
present 'world unrest and upheaval,
for people in all walks of lifc to break
away from thc true" and tried methods
and leaders of the past  and -turn  ;o

Facts About Our Country
Has a Population   Averaging    Less
Than One Man to the
Square Mile
" Thc area of Canada is 3,729,665
square miles.    Population 8,500,000.
Compared with the United Slates,
Canada is greater in size than the
United Stales, including Alaska, but
has a population less than that in the
three cities of Ncw York, Chicago and
One half of Canadians live in
towns. The produce of farms, forests, mines-and fisheries arc the output of a population averaging .less
lhan one man to the square mile.
Thc total area of land fit for tillage is estimated at 302,200,000 acres.
In 1918, only one-sixth of this land
(51,427,190 acres) was under crop.
Of the 179,000,000 acres fit to farm
in the 454,000,000 acres comprised in
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta,
but 26,000,000 arc under crop and 25,-
000,000 under livestock. There ' is
room for settlers on 128,000,000 acres
surveyed farm lands, ��� including 25,-
000,000 still open for homestead entry.

Women ought to make good legislators. Many a man can testify that a
woman's word is law.
Many a man, like the moor, shines
with borrowed light -
1.   Peter  Denies   the   Lord   (18:1.-18,
1. Before the servant maid (vv. ISIS). Peter's first blunder'was to attempt to follow Jesus at this time.
Christ had told him lhat he could not
follow now (13:36). Presumptuous
boldness oftentimes places one in an
embarrassing position. In such cases
compromise or -'cowardly denial usually follows. Wisdom as to our weaknesses should move one to avoid unnecessary trials. John, seeing Peter
standing at thc door, introduced him
to the house of the high priest. Here
under thc taunt of a Jewish maid he
openly denied his Lord.
2. Before the servant and officers
(v. 25). Peter had not only ventured
where it was not necessary, but was
warming himself at the enemies' fire.
Haying quailed before the sarcastic
impudence of a servant maid hc openly denied his relationship with thc
Lord when questioned by the officers
and servants at whose'fire hc was!
warming himself. To havc a clear and|
independent testimony one should bc
separate from sinners (II. Cor. 6:14-
18). _ ���
3. Before lhc kinsman of Malchus
(vv. 26, 27). This man had seen Peter with Jesus in Gcthscmanc when
Peter in his rashness smote off the
ear of Malchus (see verse 10). Hearing Peter's denial this servant of thc
high priest put the question, "Did I
nol sec thee in thc garden with him?"
When Peter uttered thc third denial
thc cock crowed, bringing to his attention the warning words of Jesus
(Mark 15:72). This is an example of
what a disciple of Jesus may do in
the hour of great temptation.
II. Jesus   Commits    His   Mother   to
John (19: 25-27).
Though suffering thc indescribable
anguish of thc cross, he tenderly remembered his grief-stricken mother
and charged John to care for her.
Mary had other sons who should havc
cared for her, but thcy-were unbe-1
lievcrs till after Jesus' resurrection.
Hc knew that his mother would have
better care at thc hands of thc beloved disciples than at the hands of
her own children, who did not believe in and love Jesus. Love to
Jesus is stronger-lhan human affection.
III. Peter and John at Jesus' Tomb
When Mary came in breathless
haste, announcing the fact of the
empty tomb, Peter and John "ran to
investigate. When John came to the
tomb hc gazed into it, but when Peter came hc went in.' John with holy
reverence hesitated to enter, but Peter through his impulsiveness entered
at once. The difference docs not lie
in the fact that one loves more than
the other, but in their different temperaments. One should not expect
the same behavior from all. This investigation was convincing (v. 8).
IV. Peter's Restoration ancl Commission (21: 15-19).
Peter had thrice denied lhe Lord,
so before he again entered thc service
he had thrice to confess his love for
Jesus. In this commission to Peter
is set forth the motive and nature of
service which is incumbent upon all
Christian ministers and teachers.
1. His .motive ��� love for Christ.
Love is the supreme qualification, for
service for Christ: it is the very
spring-from which-all-activity flows:
It is not learning and eloquence, but
love that makes a pastor. (1), "Feed
my lambs." Thc word for "feed" as
well as "lambs," signifies that thc
work here is that of nuturing the
babes in Christ. (2) "Feed my
sheep." The word here means to
feed, guide, correct, and lead the
matttrer class of Christians. It carries with.il-not only the responsibility of feeding, but correction and discipline. -If this bc attempted without love, failure will inevitably ensue.
(3), "Feed my sheep." This relates* to
the care of, the aged Christians. The
word "feed" -returns somewhat lo the
meaning in the first instance, where
hc says, "feed my lambs," so lhat
the ministers' responsibility to care
for- the aged is equivalent to thai of
tlic young.   "'

Col. Charles A. Taylor, of the Salvation Army immigration department, in an interview at Toronto,
said: "It is not for us lo encourage
any male immigration until all the
soldicrs are re-c'stablished." Canada's
first business, he added, was to look
aflcr her returned men.
With reference to the Salvation
Army's immigration policy, Col. Taylor said: "It will be our policy to
encourage men who are agricultural
'aborws or those who arc prepared
to do woik on the farms. But it will
depend entirely upon the demand
that there is for such workers. The
wives of thc immigrants will bc sent
for after the husbands have been
established. We shall endeavor to
send'-to Canada the best class of

Col. Taylor said he was glad that

authorized the committee of the
Council of Women, but he did not
know the relation which thc Salvation Army would have tb it. During
lhc war the Salvation-Army had kept
its immigration machinery intact.
The Army was willing to co-operate,
provided that it was permitted to
work in its' own way.

Tricks and Deceptions Which Invariably Come to Light And
Result in-Arrests and
Discussing the recent arrests of
.sleeping car conductors charged with
accepting money from passengers
for fares and not turning 'this money
over to the companies, a well-known
Western railway official made the
following statement:
"Frequent arrests of sleeping car
and train conductors by. railway companies in which fraud against the
company is exposed always, brings a
certain amount of adverse criticism,
the generally expressed opinion being that 'it is not fair to the employees to expose thcm to lhc temptation of detectives,' generally
known as spotters, who arc popularly supposed to board the trains and
offer the conductor an amount smaller than the regular fare to bc carried between certain  points.
"Recently telegraphic despatches
appeared in Milwaukee and Chicago
papers to thc effect that 'further arrests and disclosures were promised
for today iii an alleged $75,000 swindle whereby the Chicago, North
Shore and Milwaukee electric road
was the victim.'
"One of. the men arrested is the
manager of a film- agency, another
a film salesman and the third a conductor. The mode by which this
SAvindle was conducted is an old one;
the conductor simply neglected to
punch the tickets collected by him
and turned them over to a syndicate
of   his   friends   who  in    turn    resold
Protection By
Flood Lighting
Unexpected Result of the London
Railway Strike
One unexpected result of the London railway strike was to introduce
flood lighting to the British public in
two forms. At the Hyde Park milk
depot searchlights were employed to
assist in transport and in loading and
unloading. The ordinary army projector is rather a crude device for
this purpose, although it served well
enough in an emergency. The other
application was of a more orthodox
character. The roadway alongside
Lot's Road power station, from
which London's "underground railways arc worked, was flooded with
light from, projectors which enabled
thc sentries to scrutinize everybody
and everything that came near the
building. Whether any trouble was
contemplated by the strikers, or-not,
the flood lighting vvas an effective discouragement to any tendency in that

Elliot bit "her red lower lip. "Let me
tell you, Mr. Ruggles, that the girls
are merely lovable, mischievous children. When I explained to them the

jumping up and down and clapping

In ' connection with the despatch
from London that it was contemplated that those who were mentioned
in despatches during the war should
have permission to wear a small oak

thousand Canadians would be entitled to this extra decoration. It
has been suggested that the Maple
