Try it and see for yourself. welding english speaking rtvces together. Chauncey Depew, the venerable .New York publicist and former U. S. Senator, recently pictured how the war was welding the English-speaking races together. The world was now divided into just two camps, he declared, adding that they were not racial or territorial, but that they were aased upon the fundamentals ot gpvernment and human rights. On the one side were the men who believed \u all the doctrines enunciated on Calvary. On the other side were the men who believed in the doctrines enuaciated by Wodln and Odin and (be Kods of the German forests. When the war was over, Mr, Depew said, It would be found that the one great benefit,ot it all was the brotherhood of the EngllBh-speaklnK race. "It is a fact," he said, "that we will be one and are one in our ideals, and Wft-iire one in the,purposes vhjch we are - to' accomplish, and the brotherhood In which we are tq stand." CROPS IN ENGLAND ARE THRIVING, The present condition of crops in llie United Kingdom is vuiv promts inf, speaking generally, and givps reaionable hope,of at least an aver age yield, according to an interim re port pubjished by the Director General Qt JViod Production.

Tar Is going up, and so are feathers. Why waste them on a pro-German or pacifist? it asks. The Vancouver Sun favors the fruit embargo and chastises the prairies for opposing it. The neighboring province would - dearly Idve to have the prairie consumer at Us mercy without any competition in fruit from across the line. Oliver M. Sprague, professor ot banking at Harvard University, has suggested the following as new taxes to the ways and means committee ot the United States Goveroment: 2G cents a gallon on gasoline; a tax ot from $10 to $50 on chauffeurs, taxes on silk shirts, shoes costing more than $6.00 and 'pajamas costing more than $2, and heavy consumption taxes on coffee, tea, tobacco and soft drinks. And now some person Is cruel enough to suggest that a heavy tax be placed on profesaors. Mrs. McKlnney seems to bo pleased with the way the male M.P.P.'a treated her during her first Besslon of the legislature. In a letter to her "sisters" in the 'Dominion W.C.T.U. she says: Some ot our friends have asked -us how the meii members received us, and to those, all the answer we have is that we found In the loglalallvo balls just the same gentlemen -wo l^^ve met In. other walks ot life, and never were we made to tcel that wo were :out ot place.
