THIS IS A DUTY NOT A CHARITY There^. should be a ready, response to the appeal of the committee for special funds for the relief of soldiers' families until the Kilties go into bar-ncks, when their f�miiies will be entitled to both separation allowance pud Patriotic Fund payments. It may seem peculiar to many that liethbrldge Patriotic Fund committee cannot meet the needs of the few families involved out of the great �fund donated in the recent campaign. But it Is pointed out that veo' strict rules must necessarily govern the dis-biursemeut of this fund. These rules cannot be broken for special cases, for it is held that if a departure from the rules is allowed in one case, there �would be other cases equally deserving cropping up everywhere, with the result that the distribution of the fund would be in a state of chaos.

The mayor goes out of his way to intimate that the facts have been purposely distorted. But in spite of his wrathy letter the main fact that the boys were vagged and ordered out of town, with not a cent to see them through, with the thermometer ranging round forty below, stands. The story told in the Herald was given In good faith in the oflSce of the American consular agent here. Tho Herald printed tlie story in the Binoere hope that it would rouse Southern Albertans to use, in future, a little more tact in handling cases of a similar nature, and we believe  we have done something that will head oft bull-headed tactics on the part of our oiileialB in future. Had the boys in this particular case drifted into Canada as floaters, and had they received their harvesters' wages only to waste them in an orgy on reaching the city, there would have been no question about their treatment. But Western Canada advertised In the United States for harvesters; we needed them; these boys came. They worked faithfully, and Were beaten out of their wages. They reached Lethbridge broke. If there is any good reason in tliose facts why they should be stigmatized, and allowed to get back to the States as best they could to toll their story, the Hei-ald fails to see it. Surely it would have been a thousand times better to use a little diplomacy and Bend our young American friends back to their homes with a feeling that, though they had had hard luck, Canada had reaped a mighty fine crop ViX\C^ Is a pretty Kood place after all.

TO OUR 1% in 1S99 should expect 5.95% now. in 1899 should expect 7.44% now. G% In 1S99 should expect 8.93% now. The following table illustrates some fiuctuations in the investment value of tlie Canadian dollar between 1905, 1910. 1914. and October, 1915, on the basis of the average wholesale price of commodities, as ascertained by tho Department of Labor: Henry Hornbcck, pre-emptor near Jasper, B.

We had gloated over the honor of being the home of the only Kiltie unit in Alberta. But two Kiltie battalions are better than one, so here's luck to both. Even the premier's chair may some day be held by a woman, according to the outline of the women's suffrage bill to be introduced Into the Alberta (The Financial Post) The average individual is perplexed because the Canadian dollar does not buy as much as it did years ago, nor does it buy now as much as it did one year ago. In 1899 tiio goods then purchasable by one dollar today will cost $1.49. A year ago they cost $1.35. A record of prices kept officially enables The Financial Post to determine with accuracy the purchasing,power of the dollar. In July, 1914, the purchasing power had been reduced by 25.7 per cent., and In October, 1915, by 32.73 per cent., as compared with prices In 1899, so that at the dates named tho Kluivalent value of one dollar in goods was 74 cents and C7 cents respectively. For tile same reason that tho baker 4% 5% G% 4% 5% �% i% 5% 6% in 1903 equivalent to 5.20% now. in 1905 equivalent to 6.507o now. in 1905 equivalent to 7.80% now. in lUlU equivalent to 4.78% now. in 1910 equivalent to 5.9S% now. In 1910 equivalent to 7.17% now. in 1914 equivalent to 4.42% now in 19)4 equivalent to 5.53% now. in 1914 equivalent to 8.63% now. This is another illustration that gold is not wealth in itself, but simply a oommodlly like wheat or coal, and derives its value chiefly because It is a good means of exchange of other commodities, fairly easy to handle and hard lo get except by some such exchange. Capital Is symbolized by gold and demands its wages equally with labor-an increase in time of stress, a decrease when limes are slack.
