Mark my words, you can't pick out a. single hat that won't be lowor within Bix months.-Boston Evening Transcript. , _ Ottawa, July 5.-Since hio appointment as fuel controller, C. A. Magrath has boon busily at work investigating the coal situation in Canada and the United States and creating an organization t'o handle the many problems that confront him at the very outset. Mr. Magrath has spent the last, couple of days In Montreal, and on hla return to Ottawa states that as the coal used in that part of Canada extending from Montreal to Winnipeg is imported from tho United States, and as bbo Imports are very considerably bohind the normal, ho decided that it was Imperatively necessary . to put a representative of Canada into tho United States at once. The tuol controller also announced that he had succeeded In securing tho services of one of the lending fuel and transportation experts in the United States to look after Canada's interests under his directions. Mr. Magrath states that he is now in h position to deal with deliveries and complaints and urges importers to furnish Immediate information re-, garding the amount of coal contracted for, tho quantity received, to what oxtent deliveries aro behind and what amount of coal still remains to bo contracted for. The names of the mining companies furnishing the coal should also be submitted so as to enable him to get into touch with these mines In order to accelerate tho movement of coal to Canada. Tho fuel controller expresses the hopo (hat, as time is very much of an objection, importers will not dolay in communicating their requirements to him at Ottawa. IN FLANDERS' FIELDS In Flanders' fields tho popples blow lietweon tho crosses, row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky Tho larks still bravely singing, fly, Scarce hoard amidst the guns below. ,WQ|are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and wero loved, and now we He In Flanders' fields. Take un our quarrel with the foe, To you from falling hands we throw The torch-be yours to hold It high; If yo break faith with us who die, Wo shall not sleep though popples grow In Flanders' fleldi. The boys of Canada are fully alive to the opportunity and responsibility of contributing to the winning of the war through helping in the greater production of food. Various provincial governments have appealed to the older boys to help in this way. The Ontario government has perhaps* been tho most active and has through Its various departments and resources committee been able to meet in part, at least, the demand for farm labor. The .Ontario government asked the Y.M.C.-jH." to co-operate with them in recruiting boys and keeping In touch with them when they, were once placed on tho farm. The Y.M.C.A. 1ms now five zone supervisors who are giving their entire--time to this work and \ the reports and stories which come to them show that tho boys are 1 ready to make sacrifices both in the matier of finances and pleasurable occupation. One boy of elghtcon, who had tried to enlist hut into been refused, was earning.$18 a week, llo felt he ought to do something to help definitely In winning the war. His firm offered him ?22 a week to stay in his position but that boy is in overalls on a farm earning a month. Another boy of seventeen refused a position worth $70 a month to take up farm work for $17 a month. A doctor in an Ontario town bus a large practice an automobile and a seventeen year old boy. He planned to have his boy drive the car for him oil summer. The call to the farm came and tlio boy said good-bye to dad and automobile, and manned with overalls and n determination to help, went forth to the farm and, as he says in one of his letters home has "been shovelling manure every bright and shining day since." But ho is sticking. Amther hoy drove 12 miles in a blinding rain to receive the Farm Service corps badge which the so.'ern-.'inu is giving to boys working on farms, These instances show the spirit with which Canadian boys under military, age are helping to do their part. Thoy are ovidonce of a real, practical patriotism which speaks well alike for both the future of the boys and the nation. FOLKESTONE CHILDREN PAY TRIBUTE TO CANADA'S DEAD About 100 Canadian soldiers now lie in the military burial ground at Khorncliffo Camp. A simple and touching ceremony took place when several hundred school children of Folkestone. Hythe and Sandgate assembled to placet! flowers oii the grave. Many public bodies and private individual sent wreaths. A littlo boy had a pony and a dog, and his generosity was ofton tried by visitors asking him-just to boo what lie Would sayrr-to give them one or both of his pets', , One day be told a man he might have IiIb pony, reserving the dog, much to tho surprise of UIh mother, who asked: "Why Jackie, why didn't you give him the dog?"
