The state of war between Russia and the Central Powers has been declared to have ceased to exist, as a result of the negotiations at Brest-Litivsk. A definite peace treaty has not been tsned, as is the case with the Ukrainians, but complete demobilization of tbB Russian army is under way. The general opinion appears to pre-tkat the big offensive on the west-era front will commence very shortly. untarily * thon compulsory rationing may soon be iiecossary., l^rd Khondda, the Hriilsh food controller, recently cabled Food Administrator Hoovov, of the I'nlted Stales; " you are able to send tho ailles at loAst 75,000,000 bushels of wheat over apd above wlmt you Imvo exported up to January 1, and in addition to the esportablo surplus from Canada, 1 cannot take the responsibility of assuring our people Uiat there will be enough food to win the war." This declaration follows a statement made at the big I^bor Conference at Xottingham, Kngland, by W. G. Anderson, Labor momltpr of Parliament for Sheffield, who said that "a dangerous famine Is coming across Kur-opo," and appcaiod for rcsb-aint.

Systematic food conservation will reduce the cost of living. Take wheat as an instance. Canadians consumed 230,000,000 bushels of wheat in 1917, at an approximate cost of $460,000,000. Canadians, following the U.S. plan ot using one-third less, the quantity ot wheat In 1918, would be saving at present Hied prices approximately |150.-000,000. Canadians uslt�g corn, rye and other cereals, to save one-third the quantity ot wheat used in 1917, would pay for these substitutes $120,- [ J., were 000,000.

It says: The Advocate falls to see why appointments to the Dominion Senate bould be limited to the tall-coated �lIB-h�tted, kid-gloved, conventionally educated, and "newly rich" elements ot the party supporters; Mr. Harmer would not object to be called one of 'tlie boys."

THE REMOVAL OF THE TRACTOR DUTY 71iursday-off goes the duty on cattle coming into Canada from the United States. Friday-off goes the duty on small farm tractors. Truly the Western Canada fanner is coming into his own, and he has the Union government to thank for it. ......------- Tte action of the government in removing the duty on tractors is heart-- enlng. It is a common-sense ioeasure designed to meet the. demand ot the fanners who need small tractors to Increase production. Farmers have been urged to increase their grain crowing operations. They have answered that' their efforts to do so have beea^ampered by the tractor duty. Now that the duty is removed It remains for tlie farmers to show their appreciation by increasing their acreages jto: the llthit The.Herald is disappointed that the meaiiare did not go a step farther and remorethe duty on all farm tractors. It is admitted that the order as it �tands will do the greatest good to the greatest number In that it will bring the kind of machine he needs closer to Ue small farmer, but there is no good reason why all tractors might not have been,included. Nor is there any good reason why tall farm machinery should not be placed on the free list. The same ar^-meots hold good as In the case ot the tractor. Canada is not producing and cannot produce enough farm machinery to meet the Canadian demand. The farmers need it to Increase production.. The cheaper It is the more they  will avail themselves of It, Hence the duty should be removed. The new government however, is making a start in the right direction. Common-sense and a mobile tariff based thereon is what this country needs. Let the government iqvestl-:i�te the needs ot the country and act accordingly. value of $40,000,000. lowing the U.S. plan of saving two anil a halt times the fat now wasted, would be saving in 1918 approximately $24,-000,000. By following the plan outlined in the United States for the conser�-a- tion of wheat, all kinds of m'eat and \ At Guelph the frost has penetrated fats, the people of Canada would, on i Ji.'L?'"""?'^ ^� watermains and the basis of the ' amounts of these Falling 40 feet from an embankment at .Vewark, a XJ.C.. locomotive landed In a store window, domolish-ing itself and a touring car whicli stood in its road. I commodities used in this country, save from $85,000,000 to $100,000,000. The saving on wheat alone would be about $30,000,000 making idue allowance for substitutes, the object in thOj United States being to save about one-third the wheat now used. ".Meatless days" in the United States are defined as follows:- "Meatless" means without any cattle, hog, or sheep products. On otlier days use mutton and lamfi'ln preference to beef or pork. cPorkless" means without pork, bacon, ham, lard or pork products, ^resh or preserved. Use fish, poultry and eggs. As a nation we eat and waste nearly twice as much as we need. By applying tlie principle of saving what is wasted I^ Canada in the way ot meats, taking the. average waste as the same in the United States the saving would be $32,000,000 a year, and there would be that much more meat for the allies. The advice of the U. S. food administration regarding fat is as follows: Fry less; bake, broil, boll or stew food instead, 'Save meat drippings; use these and vegetable oils for cooking instead of buttl3r. Butter has food values vital to children; therefore give It to them. Use it only on the t-able. Waste no soap; it is made from fat. Be careful of all fats. We use and waste two and a half times as much fat as we need. We can all play a part in winning Uie war by. economizing in food and enabling our allies to remain in the struggle. It we are wasteful, and not wlliiiig to sacrifice, wo are dqlng our best to lose the war. Even if we do not want to economize voluntarily we | may be forced to, if not by our government, then by conditions that will exist througlibut the world and compel us to, it for no -other reason than that food will not be available. Don't let us follow the principle of locking the door after the iiorse has escaped. there are over 200 orders ahead to have them electrically thawed out with new ones constantly coming in. fOOO C0N8ERVATI0fii(t'w people are really making any f|nuine sadrlfice, and apart from , , ;|)Dte]8 and restaurants, and not all of tHem by;any.meaus,liUle heed is llke- \'X- 'rI:fX*P�*'* t� 'o**^ regulations.
