The answer was contained in a report' and specific recommendation made upon the tenders (Tom Kelly's amongst the others) by Messrs. B. S. ft W.

A Coalition govern- ment is being more or less vigorously opposed by the Conservative news- papers, which is a good sign of what s running in .their minds. Some are >resumably in favor of it. They speak of national problems and the neces- sity of a "national government" to meet them. Tbe wish is, perhaps, father to the thought. At any rate, -be suggestion "is there, to take or to eave, as may be deemed fit. In fact, the Borden government is willing to do almost anything to save its' bacon. Although the voters lists unorganized districts are being prepared, and decks are being cleared one way or another for a general el, ection, the desire for it seems not as keen as it was before the results in.Manitoba put the fear of the Lord into their hearts. Hints of peace peace with honm and the long end of the spoils, the Wad of peace the Germans want, are in the air. ine latest is contained in a dispatch from Ottawa, which appeared in the lo- ronto Mail and the Montreal Gazette, simultaneously on August The gist of this dispatch was that an. extension of the Parliamentary term, a good, long extension, say of three yeare which would, perhaps, see them bacit wllicn wuuiu, into better times, is the way out of the difficulty. The good will and sincere support of the Oppos tion a bespoken-for this proposal tosivePre- mi'er Borden a general election at the "me that suits him best. Hopes are expressed that the Liberal party and the Hwise will agree to it, and that the Liberal press will do no snarling ori'the side.

Sol- diers are divided into two classes: those who are on active service with heir military unit, and those who are tck, wounded or prisoner, and, there- ore outside of active organization. In each of thl> two cases there is a different mode of address. Complete instructions have been is- >iied by the Information department of the Canadian Re'd Cross in Lontlon. Snglaud, as" to 'the procedure in each uBtanc's. 'In addressing men serving actively with the Canadian Expeditionary Force, write, first, the.military num- ber of the person addressed, then the lumber of his battalion, and tlie num- ber of the division to which Ins bat- talion is attached.-.- The following is a sample qmciai address, correct in every detail: 2336 Private J. p.
