AGRICULTURAL RELIEF FUND For the Farmers in the Devastated Regions of the Countries of the Allies their countries. We want to do that for several reasons. The object is humane and 'we are a humane people. They are our allies, our neighbors and our friends. We want to help them for Lhe sake of the good name of Canada. It would be a good thing in our international relations, to have it known that the dairymen of Canada gave something, a good thing to have it known that our grain growers gave something, a good tiling to have it known that our livestock men gave something, that our poultry men and fruit growers have given something, and above all that our country women have (remembered their sisters whose ,farm homes have to be re-established out of ruins. We want for Canada a phrcfe among the nations, on behalf of our farmers, which will be in keeping with what our'sons and brothers have done and won on the fields of battle. � j For all these reasons may I suggest to your readers that we think kindly of giving some aid to the fund for these peasant farmers who have suU'ured. Wer will never miss it; it will be laid, up where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where tWeves do not break through nor steal. It will be to our everlasting credit. JAS: M. ROBERTSON.

We ought to help our stricken brethren ^ ;vs soon aa the enemy is pushed out of (New York Outlook) Indorsement of the campaign of the United States Fuel Administration against overheating has been given by eminent physicians of the country. Dr. James J, Walsh, physician, doctor of philosophy, author, and one of the most distinguished.tmembers of the! Roman Catholic Church in this country, said: "Pneumonia takes a little more than one man in e'ght, and therefore lias wrested from tuberculosis the grim honor' of killing the most human beings. Man is a marine animal, seven-eighths water. He needs - cool air and moisture around him. Overheated'dry air makes him too susceptible to disease. In a temperature of over sixty-eight degrees it is difficult for men and women to exist healthfully. If Americans can be taught to live in this temperature, the number of pneumonia victims wll surely decrease. Fresh, cool, moist air is the foe of j pneumonia, and persons who keep' their houses cool and breathe fresh, moist air need have no fear of it." Dr. Abraham Jacob!, known as the Nestor of American Medicine, in approving the Fuel Administration's campaign for lower temperature for houses, said: "Seventy is too much, s'xty-flve is ample for persons in robust health who are actively engaged. Susceptibility to disease is developed by breathing an overheated atmosphere, and if persons jean be taught to keep their � -houses cool enough for health life as well as coal will be ' saved." Dr. Haven Emerson, Commissioner of Health of New Yorjv, is another distinguished physician who advocates a reasonable temperature in American households. He says: "A temperature of sixty-eight degrees supplies ample heat for all healthy persons.. TJiere is no question that our houses }� and offices are kept too warm. An ' undoubted improvement in the public j health will take place if the American j people can he persuaded to keep their ; houses cool enough." Even a baby is warm enough in a temperature of sixty-eight degrees, according to Dr. S. Josephine Baker, ] head of the Bureau of Child Hygiene i of New York. Dr. Baker asserts-that j cool air and fresh air are absolutely essential to health. In the newsprint enquiry after noting that the pr'ce for news print has been fixed in the United Stales at three cents from January 1 to April 1, Mr. Montgomery stated that many of the Canadian newspapers have increased both their subscription and advertising rates.  He mentioned more particularly tho Toronto Mail and Empire, Toronto Star and Toronto Telegram,  He then quoted from the annual report of the Canadian Preps Associat'on for the year ending April 30, 1917, to show that, during the year the newspapers had benefitted by nine government advertising campaigns involving an expenditure of $300,000. These d'd not include the National Service Board and Thrift and Production campaigns. This government advertising, Mr. Montgomery asserted brought, to the newspapers supplementary advertising by brokers and others while the volume of advertising mentioned in the report quoted was insignificant in comparison with the advertising done in connection with the recent Victory War Loan and the Dominion election. In fixing a price, ho said, some compensation should be made for the losses already sustaiued. It was not in the best interests of the newspapers themselves that any condition calling for the fixing of a retroactive price should be allowed to continue. Mr. Montgomery asked that the newspapers be asked to pay not less than three cents. 1 Mr. I*. Stewart, government counsel, in reply, stated that the object of the inqu'ry was to ascertain the cost of production .and what price should be charged the newspapers for news prrnt. It was beyond the scope of the inquiry to ascertain what use the newspapers are making of the paper supplied. It would be within the power of the government to Kmit the amount of advertising and the charges made but that had no t bin g t o do with the present inquiry. Mr. Stewart remarked that the government advertising campaigns were not occasional occurrences. Fears expressed by tho manufacturers at the beginning M the inquiry as to increased cost had not been realized in many instances. "I submit," ho concluded, "that all that should be done is to fix a reasonable price as a war measure." T. F. Henderson. K.C., for the Booth Company, stated that an entirely new situation had been created. Any price fixed in Canada "would seriously affect that ruling in the United States. J. F. Orde, K. C, considered that attitude of Mr. Stewart as unfair. Ho seemed to represent the newspapers more than any one else and such conduct was calculated to antagonize the paper makers and have them close their mills. across the table from him at Mr:-*. Carroll's boarding house, just off Broadway. Also the Great Secret to be shown. AT STARLAND '�The Law of tho ^.and," probably tho best known of all'of George Broad-hurst's plays, is to appear at Starland theatre with Mine. Petrova as star, tonight and tomorrow. "The Law of the Land" is one of the most gripping dramas ever filmed, Director Tourneur found it necessary to inject much of what is called "comedy relief" and this has been most cleverly done. In particular is T. Vivian as the butler a leavening influence. Another amusing character is the Inspector's brand now son who shouts into the telephone what his father fondly" believes to be a message-strictly in code. The theme has been worked out with more than ordinary care and end.* in a stirring climax that will not be easily forgotten. Don't miss "The Law of the Land' at the Starland. i Carlo stars.
