Austrlans will guard the �ijkralhian frontier. The Uli;raih-tans and the Rumanians are said to kave joined forces to defeat the'^ol-herOd. ' � . The'.political tension in Britain appears to have been reliisTed by the retention \of tlje services of General Rob. ertson by placing him in charge of the eastern command. ,  ., . POSSESSlriG the :  OLE liANDS ; Premier Stewart's proposal that land held by speculators should be ontain-d by the government for the soldiers' land settlement is tot fayored by ihe rTwroniq M^il and Empire, probably fo^ the reason, tha^it/^tifects^to interfering with vested Interests. Vest-ad intejeats will hare to niake some eacrliipe for th^ welfare of the nation. il^TerthelesgJ The JIall and Empire way favor s^tlement of the soj-dlers upon the land .and ii it does it -wants to be,attractive.enough to induce the soldiers to take up agrl-jmlture. If we are to rely wholly up-^Oimjfi^n^'aiiAk; then Vt^e-Twnd fn most cases wcfuld'^e Isolate^ and Tar ftom Tflllroads and settlements. There ^.no inducement there to the soldiers..! On the other hadd we have great areas 'bf land held by speculators, railroads,' ^dian reserves, and grazing leased, '�WsaTo existing railroads and settled jemimunlHes, that would appeal to the ^dior."

T)iey. are manufact.ure.d by ihe millions every-minute of the day and aft^ef bridf Use, are lost to us. -Such loss inyolves waste, n'^jd in seemingly sraalKmatfers of this kind Canadians are. more wasteful than almost any other people in the world. iVo are al?d Wa8.teful In-other ways, and it Is Iwell to re&ember- that, directly ior indirectly, evei-y- form oi waste has a bearing ipoh yi.e food p|>obiara. , � The great masa.*cvf Gapadlans have always .found the means' of rtvelihood easy. We are jiot llko the Germans and Pretich and Belgians, forced by necessity to niake the most of things just at hand to intensify' efforts of production. \Wilful waste makes woeful w�nt; but wasto is not wilful in hlnety-nih'e cases otit of a hundred^ It is the result of thoughtlessness or of Ignorance, or of lack of .organized opportunity, or all together. Saving of food, reduction of wastfl, substitution' of other things for thlugs essential to our Allies-these are part of the Gospel ot. War-Wlnnlng. Saving is another form of production. You cannot always produce, but you wn always save. The thing that is saved takes the'place of ttio thing that cannot be prodUci|d. - . ^ �yV'e waste food in many ways: In .peeling potatoes, the loss' is 20 per cent. In stale bread..
