"As is being reiterated every day. l!ie ol'jecl of increased production nnd" of the saving of food is one and tho same-namely, that more may be cvailable to be sent abroad. It stands la reason that the less food consumed in Canada the more there will be to bo shipped overseas. �'If ail Jhc peopli! of Canada -.voiild resolutely determine to consume during the war only as much food as is ]ificessary;.for tlic proper maiulenanci' of their health, a great national economy would be ci'fectnd. Generally speaking all of us eat much more than Is re?lly j;ood tor us. "Apart -from the ouestion of saving in utiaiititj-. it is imperative that ve economize in the foods which ,ire higli in nutritive value for their bulk. This is v.-hy we are asked to use as Jittle white flour, beef, bacon and butter as possible, and to refrain from using much lamb and veal in place cf these. We h^ve plenty of substitt'.tcs which we can use without injury to our health-corn and brown bread, rolled oats, fish, pota-toes, beans and other vegetables-to mention only a few. "While everyone cannot produce food, perhaps, yet all can save by Exercising a lictle patriotic self-denial. What the Chairman of the Food hoard it atking us to do is but a .small thing In the way of sacrifice, and I im sure that we should gladly observe alj the regulations which he finds it necessary to make from time to time. "I believe that food conservation v,-ill prove a mighty factor in the conduct of tlie war, and in this, as in other things, the Canadian people may be depended upon to nobly and bravely do their part." LADY WHITE. CZECHS WANT 10 flIN THE ALLIES A I'arifif Port, June 21,-Unnfti-^ial members of the Anwrican Red j Cross mission to Russia, which arrived here last night asserted that thousands of Czechs-Slovaks are on their way to the United States to offer their services against Austria. These men, it was said, had been conscripted by .Austria when war was declared, but at the first opportunity they had deserted to the Russians, remaining with the latter until the Brest-Litovsk peace treaty was signed. The treaty being unsatisfactory to them, they decided to come to America and offer "heir services. / NOTED FRENCHMAN MISSING Paris, June 21.-Captain Alexandre Berthier, prince and duke of Wagram, is missing, says an official announcement.

Sole Agents for North America HAROLD RITCHIE & CO., Limind, 10 McCul St., TORONTO ': i' > : : > > ? > '> ? >>: The following is tho most excellent report given by .Mrs. W.A. Buchanan of the eighteenth annual coit-; vention of the Imverial Order Daugh-\ ters of the ICmpiro liVld in Toronto ] from May 27 to ;U. Il was given by i Mrs. Buchanan at the meeting of tho Major .lack Ross Chapter last week and at tho Sir .-Vle.vander Gait Chap-: ter last evening. There were present delegates rep-' rcsentini; the 40.0(.i0 women of the TOil chapters of the Dominion. Following an addres.s of welcome the reports of i committees were read. An interest-!*ing lecture was given by -Mrs. George ' Smith of St. Catherines who alluded to the assistance rendered eilucation by the I.O.D.t;., zm libraries being sent out and travelling exhibits of historical pictures. Following the municipal reports the Scheme of French Relief as outlined by Madame Casgrain was strongly opposed by Lady Pope, moving in her resolution thai some scheme of French relief be chosen at the meeting and that the money be sent direct to the French government or through one of tiie great cliannels of relief for France. After mucli discussion an amendment was carried to the effect that tlie delegates wished to place themselves on record as being ill sympathy with the .National Hxecutive in its desire to have a memorial iu France to our men and "That money already received or to be received under the special appeal for France in an official circular letter of .^larch 11th. liiLS. be applied to furnishing homes or liiits either built or to be built in the devastated areas or for immediate relief, in some other form, of the inhabitants of those districts as designated by the chapters." Work In Halifax. The president impressed upon those presenl the necessity of the provinces forming Provincial Chapters. Reports were then heard on the I.O.D.E. work iu the Halifax disaster and on "Kchoes." .Mrs. -Morgan gave a very splendid speech on the vital importance of work among tho foreign peoples and the necessity for the assimilation of foreigners. The election of officers followed resulting in the re-election of Mrs. A. K. Gooderham, who has been' president for eight year.s and of Mrs. Bruce as treasurer for her nineteenth term. There was a great change in the executive. It-was decided that a white bar should he issued for mothers of nurses serving overseas. A committee was formed or five members and one representative from each province to draft a constitution to contorm to the g�neral principles of the present constitution and giving proportional representation to the provinces-on the -Vational Council. Miss Lang in her speech remarked that Lloyd George had said that more Uian anything else he feared the disciplined nation behind the enemy. She urged on all chapters to take as their slogan "Substitute for wheat flour." Telegrams were sent assuring those overseas tliat the women pledged themselves to serve and save and endure. A petition was sent to the/Dominion government asking tliat It organize a Woman's .'\uxlliary Corps to the army, navy and air forces similar to the W.A.A.C. of Great Britain. A resolution was also passed asking that the government is.iue thrift stamps and five dollar war certificates and that a Federal Bureau of Child Welfare be established. Tho compilation of all men who have served the Empire and that each chapter keep a coxa-plete record was also suggested, A cable waa sent' to Sir Edward Komp to endeavor to try to secure an ox-chango of all prisoners as tho French government has accomplished. A Jicarty vote of thanks to ,Mrs. Buchannii was moved by Mrs, Leech and secoVdod by Mrs. .\Iarrs, for tills iplentlld report. Mrs. ,1, N.
