Like true soldiers, not waiting for. the call, but anticipating iutal battery lias, through its commanding officer. Major Stewart, bn behalf of (he officers and men, ottered itself. for 'sen-ice for the Empire. The hearts ot these men are In the right place, anil it has not taken thfm long to realise their duty. Lelhbrldge can- 'not but feel proud of her boys in thus appreciating; the need of the hour. If Kaiser William needed It to .driven home to him how badly he had miscalculated the effects of war with Great Britain as it would affect Can- ada he must now consider himself a poor prophet indeed. If, aa we are told, that the Germans hate been educated by their political professors to believe that a great European war meant the independence of Canada, Australia and South Africa, then, by what: Is taking place In Lethbridge -i-.nd elsewhe're, we are surely show- Ing these people how.badly they have been beguiled and befooled by their teachers.. THOUGHTFUL GIFT The rash to the aid of the Mother- land, by Canada is not only remark- able for its spontaneity in the desire to be 'in the fighting lino, 'but in the wonderful thought given aa to afford- -'irig every means of assistance- pos- Bible. This last was shown m the offer! of the million bags of flour by the Dominion. Now, as if to further prove thai in every part -of the counr try 'brains are busy devising means of -affording every .effectual help, cornea the offer ot Alberta to furnish bushels of oats. __. Horses. In a campaign are as .of .much value as men. Their care -and feeding Is of like Importance to those organizing the. cqmmiBariat .depart-. ment as the victualling of the com- hatants. The offer of the oats will. be of material advantage, and will be highly prized by the re- ciplente.

It is estimated that; its nua will drop a hundred millions US'e, of the stoppage of imports rom Europe. This shortage will have o be made up. by "emergency taxation and an Increase in the Income" tat. War hits the neutral as well as the active participants.

THE REDMEN'S OFFER One considered as a sum. Is a small amount so far aa money donated for war is reckoned. But, 'nevertheless, the aura Is In Jri- verse proportion to the Bplrlt which dictated the giving. The Blood In- dians by their offer have not only displayed their loyalty to the Empire, but have 'further given expression to the', benignity .of British it in any portiuu or oiif fuElm; where Briton has ousted Its original holders, there has never been on the part of these any cause for regret: The .-whole-hearted offer of the Red1 "men Is only an -instance, and is a testimony to British Justice and falr: play: The Indians have shown themselves true to their When we can raise' this spirit amongst those who, though with us, are not of us, we can with no idle boast call ourselves true Em- pire builders.
