Buchanan John TorranM llanaging Director Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The German reply to the latest Lus- Itania note from the United States should be in the hands of President Wilson today, and present indica- tions are that its terms will not by any means satisfy the official mind of Washington, as to Germany's con- duct in submarine warfare in future. The tentative draft of the reply, given to Washington the other day, does not at all give the impression. as the dispatches have been stating, tnat Germany is anxious to satisfy United States in her demands.

BENEAIH THE !H8 GOSSIPY LETTER BY 6ADSBY War is an awful catiislrophe to the world, but there are incidents of war which create in us a greater pride in our fellows, and make us realize that the men who are battling for us ho'id strong the faith of their fathers and have not lost their regard for the spiritual. Lieut.-Col. Morrison of the Canadian forces, in a recent letter re- lates this striking incident: "We had R most picturesque funeral the other evening at dusk (truth is SOME or THE FARMERS' PRESENT PROBLEMS Th'e farmer last, year faced the seri- ous proh'iem of 'a 'crop failure. -This year he is wondering, in many cases, how he is going to get his crop har- .veited, bountiful does it promise to he. He will require and lots of it In some cases he -will be able to get help in his own dis- so much more dramatic that the Fancy little Leslie Good- eve (Captain Goodevo of Ottawa, whom we knew as a mischievous kid) standing at the head of a grave read- ing the burial sen-ice by the light oi a siege lamp held by a grimy-faced gunner: the silent men called from the guns standing in the dusk in the lush grass under an apple tree; the open grave, the stretcher, with the muddy rubber sheet, from under which stuck the feet of Thai, which a few hours before had been .a com- rade. The young reader's voice, punc- tuated by the crash of sheila eaplsd- ing only a hundred yards away; the ruined farmhouse making a silhouette blackened timbers against the translucent .western sky. Then they lifted It into the grave, and nearly every man repeated the .Lord's Pray- er'in unison. They "watched the hole illed up, and then, I shuffled silently off through the long grass to the gun pits in the orchard. Such a scene must have an influence on men, and raise E dspth of emotion such as not a century of smug peace would ever awaken in men of a similar status in trict. tut, generally sneaking, outside communities must supply the labor. Attention must be given this matter at once. The farmers must not be caught at harvest time without hands to handla the crop.. A crop that can- not be harvested at the right moment might suffer serious damage from rain or frost. When the farmer starts to harvest he should lave the labor he needs. He.can soon figure out his requirements, and as soon as he .knows the number of hands he will require he should proceed to ar- range for them. There are s eoaple of other serious problems facing the farmers. As is >ipected after a crop failure like thit.ot 1914, farmers are serious- ly crippled financially. That was the reason they received government assistance, fjow that they have a big crop in sight, they are wondering if they can finance the harvesting of it. What about binder twine? Will the dealers allow Ihem credit? or will the .banks advance them a loan until after.they sell the grain? Withoul binder twie a farmer can't harvest his crop. What is he going to do if he isn't'given credit or the .banks won't assist him. .He doesn't know for certain whether he will face this problem or not, but he is feartul ab put It this moment. Another problem in some districts is the scarcity of threshing outfits The country tributary, to Foremost is raising the biggest crop In its history Prior to ths entrance of the railroad the acreage was small, compared with this year, and consequently the few threshing outfits in the district were aufficient. This year the acreage is very large and the threshing outfits will never be able lo cope with the New outfits are urgently re- quired, but whether they will mater- ialize is problematical. These outfits cost money, and money is hard to get these days. There Is certainly an opening for the man with money Ip buy .threshing outfits and operate them in this particular section of the country. .he scheme of things."

The change undergone by this debonair and gallant, young knight between Ottawa and Toronto can only be explained'by the fact that Toronto is two hundred an fifty miles nearer home than the other place.

Sir Hichard could hot afford to hesitate. He was so anxious to save that approximate difference of 1150000 between the Seattle price and the Tyneside price that he closed at once.
