"Grey Day"
When Britain's Entry Into the War
Took Place
Several correspondents have written to Thc Sun on the subject of
England's day, which will bc celebrated, we believe, with appropriate
services next Sunday. ' Vet this very-
day is an anniversary upon which
every Kuglishinau must look with
pn'de. It was on July 30, four years
ago,  that  Great Britain  made its  rc-
eration and arc not confined to his
corporeal welfare. But in war the
demand is not for men who havc
found their places in the world but
for those who havc not."��� From tlie
Ontario Post.

Changes in Country Life
The Future Is With the Tiller of the
Tlie present era of high prices ol
foodstuffs recalls the days of thc
"Rposhun" war of 1854-5, when wheat
was $3 per bushel, and farmers in
Ontario rolled in wealth. But thc
high prices of today apply to all products, and the world's cry is for
"more, more." The farmer has to
pay more for what he buys, especially for labor (when hc can gel it) but
this increase will take only a portion
of liis added earnings. Machinery is
being used more extensively to replace hand aud horse power, and the
whole work of the farm is being
made more systematic.
These changes for the better began before the war, but for a much
longer period���in the seventies,_ the
eighties, and the nineties���the farmer had a hard row to hoc. Though
he might be a proprietor, hc barely
made wages. Now the mortgages
arc going out and comforts aud conveniences which have been the monopoly of the. townsman or city dweller, arc coming in. The telephone,
the rural mail delivery, the daily
newspaper, and the automobile arc
revolutionizing country life. Jn many
districts electricity is at the fanner's
service. The automobile is multiplying on the sidelines al an astonishing
rale, and playing an increasing part
ii; farm pleasures and farm economics. A recent visitor to Bruce county
noted a paragraph in a Walkerton
lnap-^r recording llic. purchase of seven automobiles by farmers in one
neighborhood. In a village on Sunday hc saw a string of automobiles
outside thc church, where formerly
thc  horses   stood.
There need bc no envy of the
larmers' prosperity and comfort,
which are long overdue. Anything
that makes the country more attractive is a national gain, aud the benc-
f.ts will reach all classes. One of
thc problems has been to keep ambitious ancl energetic youths on thc
farm. The improvements and amenities which are surrounding them will
go far to reconcile them to the call-
nig of their fathers. Thinking people and welfare workers arc turning
lhcir thoughts increasingly to rural
questions. The future is with the
tiller of thc soil. The war has
thrown into relief his unique security
ancl independence. For many ycars
thc world will bc short of food while
Europe repairs thc ravages of battle.
There is no career which offers such
certainty as lhe husbandman.���Toronto Globe.

Chilblains come from undue exposure to slush and cold and frost-bite
from thc icy winds of winter. In thc
treatment of either there is 110 better preparation than Dr. Thomas'

its  application   is   extremely   simple.

A Significant Movement
Labor to Demand a Larger Share of
the  Gains of Industry
One of the significant movements
of the times was recently inaugurated by thc Standard Oil company of
New Jersey. It consists of a plan
whereby thc employees of that organization arc hereafter to have a
direct voice -in its affairs so far as
they relate to the conditions of labor.
It doubtless means that hercaftcr
the corporation in question will not
automatically decide these questions
without hearing ihe opinions of their
employees and giving due regard to
them. Five years ago this would have
been dismissed as a "purely academic question." It cannot be so
readily disposed of now, for nothing
is surer than that labor is going _ to
demand a larger share of the gains
of industry and a greater voice in its
direction. It seems reasonably sure
lhat such demand cannot bc resisted. In fact, thc action of the Standard Oil company of Ncw Jersey
would seem to anticipate this demand
by making voluntary concession to
If this great problem is worked
out with patience and goodwill, we
shall preserve what is worthy in our
present system while at the same
lime so liberalizing our industrial
economy as to avoid thc costly struggles which', in the past, have been all
too frequent.���Elmer A. Yotingman

In Their Own Coin
Terrible      Nemesis    Awaiting
Many a German Soldier
It is pretty certain that the German
higher command, when it instituted
poisonous gasses as weapons of war,
lacked vision to foresee the terrible
nemesis awaiting many a German
soldier. The composition of many
of the gases iu use is a secret known
only to a few. This mode of action
is also often mysterious to the uninitiated. But every now and then the
veil is lifted and a glimpse is given
of thc uncanny horrors of gas warfare. At a meeting of the Hamburg
Medical Society an army surgeon recently gave an account of the effects
on German soldiers of an unknown
gas used on the western front. This
gas was invisible, tasted sweet, and
smclled musty. It was liberated by
the explosion of gas bombs, and was
so insidious and rapid in its action
that in many cases there was no
time to put on a gas mask. In a few
minutes its victims had died, convulsed. Others wdio escaped instant death were unconscious for
several hours or even days. One
man became insane, another paralyzed. And, most eerie of all, no trace
could be found of any chemical poison in the bodies of these victims to
the unknown gas.
Hunger Stone is Now Visible
The famous "hunger stone" in die
River Kibe, near Tetschen, which,
according to popular belief in Germany, predicts a famine when seen,'
is now visible for the first time since
the beginning of the war.
/The: stone lies in the bed of the
river, and has never been_ visible
save at /exceptionally low tide. On
the stone;is chiselled in old German:
"VVhen yc See me,,yc will wqep."

gr.s   of  Prosperity  of  Farmers    in
Substantial Buildings
When travelling in the train
through Western Canada, one is
struck by the signs of prosperity of
thc farmers in the substantial buildings already erected and in course of
erection. Especially is this noticeable
on thc line of tltc Canadian Pacific
Railway between Calgary and Kd-
inoiiton, Alberta. All along the line
the bright looking farm houses and
spacious barns lend color to the bca-
ly of the landscape. Everywhere,
too, new buildings in the course of
construction arc to bc seen, notwithstanding thc fact that the cost of
lumber is somewhat high
present  lime.
By entering the lumber
themselves, fanners will,
soon be in a position to obtain lhcir
building material at most favorable
prices. One oi their large, cooperative associations expects shortly to
have in operation a large saw mill,
situated in thc heart of the lumbering country in British Columbia. This
mill will havc a capacity of 75,000
feel pcr clay, and it will soon bc turning out lumber in considerable quantities to supply thc farmers of thc
prairies. Thc lumber will bc supplied to agricultural users on thc cooperative plan, and it is thought that
farmers will be able to obtain their
supplies at a lower price than thcy
���have been paying. The new plant
comprises saw mills, planing mills,
lath ��� mills, and drying kilns, ancl is
one of the most up-to-date plants in
the  lumbering world.

'.wealthy  of   the  citizens  of   Belleville {
! were   rushing   to   till   up   their   cellars
j villi  coal  while  the  poor  were     un-
1 able   to  do  so  by  reason   of  lack  of
the   necessary   money   for   the   necessary  winter  fuel.    Capt. Schuster set
aside   three  days  iu   which   he     sold
coal   only   to   those     whose      winter
needs  were  six  tons  or  less  and  he
took  often   the  guarantees     of    employers   that   thc  buyers     would   pay.
Many wives of soldiers    and      wage
earners   were   thus able  to  rid  themselves  of  the  fear of winter coal  famine and to get a partial supply that
will go  far to take thu terror out of
a   Canadian   winter.       Thc   wealthier
citizen was  not allowed to have any
coal   delivery     from     Capt.   Schuster
during those three clays.    The    small
consumer gels so little attention these
days that the action should be widely
commended���if not imitated in other
cities.    Few city councils are so progressive   as   to   tackle   thc    problems
of tltc poor, although  they will have;)

sake.���Regina Leader.

What Constitutes
War Has Popularized the Word But
We Hzed a Definition of It
Socialists, particularly in England,
used thc word "profiteers" long before the war. Pretty often thcy
meant by it whoever seeks a profit.
Taken in that sense everybody in
business or in a gainful occupation
is either a profiteer or an idiot; for j
business is a quest for profit. In aj
great majority of the ordinary everyday decisions that are made hour
by hour a man takes this course
rather than that because hc thinks it
will be profitable.
And this applies as much to llic
farmer, thc plumber and thc dentist
as to Morgan. Workman strike in
thc hope of profiting by it.
War has popularized thc word, but
we need a definition of it. Senator
Borah, commenting on tltc president's revenue message, in which hc
said profiteering existed here, recently offered a definition���to wit:
"The man who takes advantage of his
country's perilous situation to gather
extraordinary profits; who is taking
advantage of his country's stress and
trial to increase enormously, unjustly and unfairly his individual gain."
If  wc  stick to that definition    tlie
entire,  country can      agree ._   heartily
that a profiteer is a wretch for whom
no punishment is too  severe.  But  a
high rate of profit is not always cvi- j

Thc economic resources of Britisii
Columbia are very simply but clearly

38 per cent, over the output of 1916:
lhc manufacture of paper and pulp
increased by 85 per cent. The forest wealth provides for about a
quarter of ihe revenue of the province.
Agricultural production in 1917 is
shown as valued at $37,661,850; an
increase of 17 per cent, over 1916,

German Organization
Has Been Overrated
Elephantine    Deliberations    of    Germans  Would  Drive  Americans
One hears much expansive admiration of the German genius for organizing, but it comes for the most
part from those who have never had
actual experience of German organization. Perhaps it is because there
is so much of it; because it is so colossal. 11 is in many ways efficient,
no doubt; they get certain things
done, but then, so do thc French, whe
seem to havc so little organization
and are so clever in improvisation.
But thc vast, elephantine deliberation
of German organization would drive
an American captain of industry mad
in a fortnight. It is heavy, cumbersome; its complicated machinery
rumbles on and on, remorselessly,
ancl once set in motion there is no
way of stopping it, of turning il
aside, of adapting it to sudden exigencies.    It is blindly impersonal, in
in Great Britain, thc U.S.A. and Canada.

The government put a tax of five
cents on a six-cent box of matches,
and thc customer is paying fifteen
cents for it. When patent medicines
were taxed, the purchaser paid the

sane business and profiteering. It is
