An election would be a calam- ity, yet we may drift into eacb party blaming the other. Still graver Is the -war situation. We are last phase of pie great in the and it may "tie "longer and more desneriite Than most of us had hoped. No one can say how much another Canadians may be -worth. But can they be raised by present methods? I venture to think Canada for her own saks and for the sake em- pire is ready to welcome unprecedent- ed measures. Let tiie premier call: the leader of the opposition into con: j Bultation; Let; Sir Robert, then, auledij by Sir Wilfrid, call into a new cabinet I the very_.ablest men of he lUiole j country. Let him pass over his pres-i ent Conservative ministers and past! Liberal ministers as freely as he sees fit. Let him sweep the provincial gov- ernments for such men as W. Ro- ivell or Sir Adam Beck. But above all let him follow Lloyd George's lead and- c-11 in the ablest business men, such as J. W- Flavelle of Toronto, or 3. H. Ashddvni of Winnipeg, men who have no past to defend and no politi- cal ambitions to nurse. Let French, and English, east and west, be repre- sented as fairly as possible; but in particular let-there be at -least >four men who renre- organized labor and ihe organized farmers of Ontario and the west. Such a ministry as that, I venture to affirm, will have not only parliament at ita back, the Dominion.- There is no question that ought to be grapplec Tith that such a ministry could nol tsk b? the horns.

H there be Real Music in 1 jour home at Christmas There is no one so unmusical as to believe that a talking machine produces real music. At best, a talking maphine, no "matter hpw'muqh it costs, no matter what artists mjike rec- ords for it, no matter what claims are made for it by its manu- facturers, gives 'only.a hollow imitation of the original music. 1 is not a Talking Machine This new invention greatest inventor is in no real sense a 'talking machine. It represents more than tw'6" million dollars spent in reseafch work It represents the achievement of his amuiudn to produce a musical. instrument which Re- creates alt formg of music so perfectly that the original cannot be distinguished from the Re- Creation. By hundreds of befdrc hundreds of thousands of music ioycrs, it Iiaa been proved conclusively that when-an dttist''sitijTs or plays in Rc-Crcation of that artiit'a performance, it is impossible to distinguish original from the Re-Creation..
