THE KAISiR AT JERUSALEM ? > � �>?>'> * 4 When the present Emperojf of Germany decided to visit Jerusalem in company with the liiiipress, in the wi/itor of 1S98-1S99, many prophecies were rife, founded upon a superstitious belief, of recent growtli, that royal couples visiting the Holy Land will moot soon after with some calamity. A visit to Palestine and Jerusalem has immediately preceded the death' of ten members of the house of Hapsburg. The iCmperor of Austria's brother, the Archduke Charles Louis, accompanied by his wife, visited Jerusalem and died sliort-ly afterward. The emperor's son, Rudolph, accompanied by the Crown Princess Stephanie, visited Palestine and returned home only to-die tragically at Moyorling. Prince Frederick of Schleswig-Holstcin, uncle of the German Empress, visited Palestine on his bridal trip and died at Jaffa. Shortly after the Grand Duke Sergius of Russia visited Jerusalem with lii.s wife, she had to appeal to tlio v.zar for protection against his brutality. The calamity which immediately resulted to the Kaiser took a hishly humorous form when Le Rirc, the Frencli "Punch," devoted an entire issue to an imaginary diary of the Emperor's trip. This hilarious .satire, which made of the-august one a laughing stock which convulsed all Europe, and which has just been presented in an English translation by the George M. Doran Company at this timely moment when British' troops are in Jerusalem, revives with its re- I.

Every pound of food that can be grown in Canada and made available for export, will be desperately needed by those who are bearing the brunt of the fighting and the suffering. The amount of food produced this year will be absolutely limited by the extent to which people in cities and towns become food producers-there is no other labor re^rvje. WHERE DO YOU BELONG? O9 the Farm? Thousands of men are urgently needed on faims in this province to niake possible increased production of food. Those who could go .iiid yet hold back, should hot forget that, unless production is greatly increased, hundreds of thousands of people will die of starvation. '' In the War Garden? By~ growing vegetables in home gardens or on vacant lots, and thus helping to feed themselves, city and town people can leave the farmers free to grow more food for export. All that is produced in this way is gaitLand a net addition to the national food supply. War Garden service is not sufficient for the man whose rightful place is on the farm^ But the War Garden does offer an opportunity for tens of thousands of people,*hose' circumstances oblige t^em to remain in the city, to have at least a small part as food producers. Interest the boys and girit in the War Garden, for they too can lielp to grow food. \ If there is a garden or vaciant lot movement in your community associate yourself with it. . If no organization exists, do what you can to interest your' neighbours in the War Garden campaign. ^ Write to your Provincial Department of Agriculture for additional information.

Even a two or three days growth of beard under the rubber facing of the mask will let in gas enough to be dangerous-it can be fatal I That's why clean shaving means more to our boys than comfort-more even than morale-it means life I Keen as our own troops are on shaving, our'American Allies are going us one better.
