Not only the church of which he was the head, but all Christendom will have received with feelings of the greatest regret the announcement of tiia death of the aged Pontiff, Pius X. When he was elected to his high office he was known as tile "compro- mise ftut lie will be better re- membered, to his credit, as the "peas- ant Pope." Born of poor and lowly parents it was only after much persuasion that Cardinal Sarto, as he was, accepted the position for which he was chosen. He fully grasped the responsibilities .of his offlce, and throughout his long life exemplified more than In name the.title of Holy Father, as his people regarded him. Not only a great, but an intensely human figure has passed away. The features .of a noble character were revealed in the .tender care and soHoi- tude he bestowed on his aged mother and sisters. Among the many anecdotes related of the deceased Pope, the following, perhaps, shows him best as he was. He had given so much of his money awav in charities that when he appointed cardinal he had not suffic- ient to buy his' ticket to Rome where he was to receive his red hat. Wealthy adniirers at Mantua, however, came to .his aid. Shortly afterwards in the magnificence of his 'new dignity he visited 'the place of tis birth. Enter- ing the poor house where he WES born he embraced his mother, and tlius satisfied :ier desire to see him a prince of the church before she died. This strangely enough, took place a few weeks after.

It is charged that farmers are coming into Reglua and making application at the banks for an advance on the grain in tlieir granaries are turned down flat. If this is so it is time the government was investigating. It is time to learn whether the banks exist for the peo- ple or the people for the banks. p 'ICKEDUPIN ASSING FOR THE BUSY MAN TO RAISE War Tax on Liquors and Extra Tariff ou WJues and Champagnes Owing to.

With, all thoughts on'the great war, and the' many .calls for assistance which it has entailed, it is satisfac- tory to know that thosa. at home are not being neglected. This applies to the efforts which are being made by the provincial government, through iHon. A. J. McLean, in conjunction with the Canadian Pacific Railway.: The proposed by the C. P. R. of affording low rates on live stock go- ing to the north for instance, and a special rate oh feed grain "from the north, to the south of the province will be material. It Is also satisfac- tory to note that the railway com- pany will assist farmers by giving them all the fire guards to the south to plow. There is not a doubt that the farm- ers of the south will require much assistance to help them over a period of disappointing crops, and every- thing of a practical nature should be utilized to benefit them. get the idea the Kaiser is licked, already.
