'i Comratsslouer Frr-enuu is' of the opinion that Ihe Dominion government i should consider the country Is at war for another year or two. and that there should be no hesitation in undertak- ing public. Moris' wlilcli would provide employment. Sm-ii works would be the-construction o! irrigation systems in Southern Albcila, the erection o( an internal atorcse elevator, nnd other utilities which would in lime aay themselves out. It would be criminal, he Ihinkf. for the government lo chop expenditures to the bone and leave Canada's soldiers helpless on the com munltl's from whicli they came.

Dealers Arc Making Ef- fort to Keep These Off The Market The worst woman in the j world pitted her against the but woman in the world. Hekne" at the CoUnul Lelhbridge people can rest assured tlinl the loy dealers of the clly arc talilne every precaution that no. goods or German make will be foisted upon llieni during Ihe Christmas for loya. This question has arisen as a rcMilt of tho recent action of Ihe neil- of-kln asjocialion In declaring a boy- cott oa the imrcliaae of Ocrmanmaoe love. "I tiilnk Ii is sale to say ihkt scarcely a tuy of German malic on sale In llio clly said a prom- inent toy-dealer, who was interviewed by The 1'erald tin the question, la the jnildsl ot a Christmas rusll.

These toys arc some which have been ill stock since before the war, or that have been .illppcd through by aomc Jobber In a big order of Canadian, British or -American" made goods. "There are bound to bo tome of Ihese." say Ihe "tor Ihere was an enormous atock ol them In tho coun- try before the war broke out. It cannot lie helped that some ot Inosn nnd their way out lo Ihe public, bul wherever Ibey have been dlicvereil, Ihesc toys with ILe haled Gcrmari name on them liave been, scrapped. This has meant a loss In many ca.iea ot a considerable amount to the toymen, but It is Isidercd as nothing to the loss that a Jenler would stand In public esteem vere ho lo deliberately place these goons on sale." There is an enormond elock of dolls thin year, and nearly every one ot .h'jso have been made In Canada. There arc also a good many American- made loys coming In Ibis year.
