We have so much daylight in summer in Western Canada that some people are at a loss to know what to do with tho- extra hour given Uf by the daylight saving. But while we hear an occasional coaiplainl. we have yet to hear one so quaint as that told in the following from tho Winnipeg Free Press: It is only by an effort of tho will that the ylolent opposition to the daylight saving measure adopted by the Dominion Parliament two months ago can now be recalled. Daylight saving Is now fn �operation; the whole machinery of the country has been adjusted to It; nobody is suffering from itfi application; and It is "accomplishing tho purposes for which the Government placed it on the statute books. There may be an isolated indivldtlal here and there who is still recalcitrant. Of this type are the trustees In a school district in Ontario, who have compelled the school to keep open from 10 o'clock In the morning until 3 In the afternoon, because they are determined that they will not permit "that flcoundrel Borden" to Interfere with the Lord's time. ligerent the same process has been ; csts. going on among our neighbors.

Even before the, war there had been a declinq in the i habit of controversy in the rural press. And since the beginning of the conflict the old-fashioned journalistic custom of slang-whanging the rival editor has practically disappeared. With us the only real practitioners E, J, Rossiter paid us a visit yesterday and admires the country very much. Crop Prospects. i The rains that we have had this; week have surely made the crops; grow. Everything looks very prom-j Ising for a good crop again this year, and farmers arc already planning how to spend their money. Y.M.CA. Drive.

Editorial rivalries used to furnieh part of the zest of life for the smaller communities of Canada.

When a woman speaker asked the ^luesUon, "Has Ireland any friends?" a voice in the audience answered; ' "Yes, Germany." ,. The man was not rebuked, neither was he applauded.-At a meeting in New Y'ork, Ireland, says the New York Herald, has more friends to the square mile In this country than in any other-it might even be added, not exceeding Ireland, Ireland has no true friends in Ger-snany, but Sinn Feinism has Its professed friends there because Germany hopes to do to Ireland through 3inn Keiniam what It has done to Russia � through holshevikism, Sinn Feinism has few friends here, Americans who are giving their all in mop and in reeources and of thought to tlie great struggle to save liberty to the world have little patience with honest Irishmen who are seeking to cripple Great Britain at this time, when she is an ally of the United States, for crippling Great Britain is Slabbing the United States in the back. Americans have no patience at all with dishonest IrlBhmen who are In Germany's pay as some undoubtedly are. If Ireland wants genuine homo rule her best chance to obtain it is to join hands with Great Britain and the United, States In the task of crushing PruBaiautsm. Sinn Felnlam Is losing friends for Ireland every day. at the front, or a boy in a Flanders j grave. No more does he rifle the dictionary for opprobrious epithets. Consequently the reader finds his loisal publications tame. Can it be that the smaller newspapers have become victims of their own moderation? ^ There is another vary good reason of course. The people want to know what the war news Is to-day, and being busy they have not the time to mull over their little weeklies which tell what was doing In the war last week. The dally papers are spending large sums,of money for up-to-the-minute war news. The people appreciate that -tact as never before. Hence the larger iind more eager reading public of Ife dally paper, which, is doing greater service to humanity today than ever before. QUEBEC'S SONS DONNING THE KHAKI.
