To l!uu extent a year ago, (.Jermany had incren.sed her armies or at all events had collected reserves which could be drawn upon iii ease of need. The annual nddltion to Germany's man power by the coming of aito of men was about ,")00.000. lu Austria it was about -lOCOOO. In France the annual addition something iess than 300^000. (ner. Oerinaiiy had practieally en-siavefi tens of thon^snnds' of Belgians and forced them to work in Ger-tuany in order that Germans might be released for the army. German;? liad made drafts on the population of Coland and would no doubt make further drafts. There were in all 5.",-(MIO.OOO people in tha rerritorles newly conquered from Russia. The yr^ctical disappearance of Russia from tbe war had had a most important influence on the power �,vhii;h Germany was able to exei' on the western front. Here Sir Robt. i road a statement n^adc In the British house ot commons showing that as a rssuU of Russia's deflection, Ger-jnany, in the spring ai3d summer of 1918. would be able lo bring to the western front an additional force of no less than l.ilOO.OOO men. She would be'able to do more than that. She would be able to hold her eastern front, with the inferior troops and to tsend bsr new levies there that they ! mi.t;ht be trained for work later on the western front. Sir Roberf_ihen reviewed nhat the allies had done. One-sixth of the en-I yre population ot France was in the ! lighting line. For Canada that would I mean at least one and a half million j men. ' Str-ength of British What had the British Empire done. ECONOMY applied xvitK a PaintBrush ^HE great national duty to-day is to "conserve." It's a duty^Vou owe yourself as well as your country. A duty just as applicable to a house, or building, as it is to the things you cat and wear. Buildings, in fact, show so tremendous an increase in cost, that the importanc* of keeping them protected is apparent to all who know how steel, wood, brick and cement have jumped in price. And the cheapest protection you can give a building is the kind you apply with a brush-PAINT. For true protection, scorn the ineffectual, cheap p^ts. Use only **Enclish** PAINT 70%lhirem}teL�ad (BraniJram's Gtnuine B.B.) 30% PuremtteZinc 100% Pure Paint The kind we guarantee to possess as its important, the above correct formula. This formula, printed on every can, and guaranteed over our President's signature, commits us to this standard. High in cost as white lead has become, we. must use it in the same proportion as heretofore. To use lass of it, would necessitate the removal of the guarantee from our-^cans-and to do that would injure the reputatio* that these paints have acquired by reason of their superior ingredients. It is by using pure white lead and pure white zinc in. such liberal quantities that we have been able to produce a paint that truly excels in covering capacity-and that stands the severe "climate test" of Canada in a way that spells true economy for all who it. . , Other B-H Products df Sterling Worth ^ We carry and recommend the following B-H products: For Interior Finishing "China-Lac" - the perfect Varnish Stain.

Canada had dispatched overseas ;'.S-).T(lii men of all ranks. Of these ;!4S,000 were .V, C. O's and men and sixteen thousand were officers.

Grow in Strength Sir Kobert said that while has was i:ot at liberty to tell the house just where the Canadians svre loc.vted he could say that the forces representing the Dominion are in greater strength nnd*mbre confident in spirit tbau ever before. They were holding a position v�hlch had not yet been seriously attacked and he would venture the assertion that ao long as their flanks will hold they will not fall back. A Heavy List As to probable casualties the people of Canada must be prepared for a heavy list when the inevitable attack comes. In the second battle of ypre.3 six thousand men or forty per cent, of the Canadian forces fell. During l.'tl". Canadian , losses totalled 84,:!47, including 1,1,461 at Yimy Ridge, 10.124 during the fightinK in 1��ay; 10,080 during the fighting in Aiigust when the Canadians captured llill TO, and 24.530 ill November wh'en they look Pas-schendaele Rid^e. , The Govt.

On the whole, the re-! suits- had not been so satisfactory as > e.\pected. The order in council, he; said, had departed to some extent i from the principle ot exemption as | had been done in Great Britain, but not along the sanio lineB because the majority of e.temptions in Groat Britain, applied to various occupational classes. ; Reviewing the proposed order-in council, Sir Robert said that under | its terms class one would now consist of unmarried men and widowers between 19 and ;{4, and class two of married men of the same age( He continued : First Call \ J "The niinister of militia proposes to call out first the men from 20 to lii; years of age, in class one, both inclusive. Later be may be obliged to call out, if the heed shall demand it, men in the sanip of 19 to 23. It' is estimated that from the men available in this way in'each year called out. there probably will be ten thousand physically fit for service at tbo front.
