Two bills are now line appearing in the Moose Jaw Daily | before Congress, one providing $50,-Xews a few days ago. The statement 000.000 for housing under tho direction was made at the rural municipalities convention of that province, and naturally created quite an impression. The fire commissioner urged the rural municipalities to help prevent this loss lifting repeated. Just at this time when every bushel of the Department of Labor, the other providing a like sum for disposal by the United States Shipping Board.

In the village of Ripley, Ont.. a certain man was such a regular attendant"*^ church that the sight of his seat vacant caused an alarm, and and, knowing that he lived alone, the pastor and the sexton hurried to his home and found him lying on the floor unconscious from coal gas. He was rescued In the nick 6f time. That's an argument in favor of regular church attendance. CANADA'S TAXATION PROBLEMS OF FUTURE lion. F. B. Carvel!, in a speech at Montreal, very properly emphasVzed the financial problems facing Canada. .Jusc now when conditions with most people are largely prosperous, we are paying little attention to taxation. In the years tu come we will have to rahe great sums of Bioney to meet war expenses of the present and consequently our taxation, cither direct* or indirect, we hope direct, will be much heavier than we have known. We can meet the conditions of the future it we actively engage in the development of our resources. With the increase of our wealth the taxation burden will be greatly lightened. Mr. Carvell points out that during �the present year the government has i ' ' ', " ,,.,...,.., , ^Canada Food Board, to raise ?2o0,000.00(j to carry on the f ordinary affairs of the country, aixty million dollars had to be provided for Interest charges, and at least ten millions or more for soldiers' pensions, and that might go as high as twenty millions. In addition to that. S400,-000,000 had to be provided to pay for the goods which were being sold bT i When he rose to speak he paid the Canada to Great Britain and the a, I ~ ^-"K lies, and which they could nut pay for j U)f.m 01.jL,fly> ,,iaa�ly but with wit at''the moment. During the present phasis the real fads of tho siimuiou fiscal year Canada would send to , with the regard to the need for men. "If we all eat and waste this year, and next year, juBt as we used to eat. and waste, then there will be still greater privation among our allies- privation which may mean starvation for women and children and the weakening of our position in the war. This is the gravity Of the food situation." -Dr. J. W. Robertson, Chairman of the Central Advisory Council to the. K. Cora Hind, the well known Winnipeg journalist, attended the conference of women at Ottawa and she came away with a very high inipres- i sion of Mewburn. the new minister of j militia, she says: I3reat Britain probably more than 5000,000,000 worth of goods, including Hiunitions, but unfortunately Hhe imported only about 190,000,000 worth, and that I ft an adverse balance of trade against Great Britain of $800,-000,000 which must be taken care of. The railvyay problem would take up probably $35,000,000 or $40,000,000, efceetiGpare the best way the goveni-�jettt could. The Government had Ko explained the reasons for ih breaking up of the fifth division and gave, figure;; as to the actual number of available, men now overseas, that never previously had been given to any but. the. cabinet. General Mow-burn made a profound impression on his audience. Personally he reminded j me strongly of General Steele; there (was the same soldierly directness, the, same assumption that women were reasonable human beings, ready in help, and entitled to have the situation lully explained to them (AVhon Kcplylnjr Mention The Herald) Magrath. March 11.-The Mngrath town council met in Jheii" regular meeting on Wednesday evening. Mar. 6th in the town hall. The report of the fire, light and license committee reported by .Mayor Bennion, he also reported action of school board rejecting the council's offer to consolidate school and town assessments and collections.

Miss Mabel Harker was elected ..convenor, with Mrs. Lyn Leavitt as assistant and Miss Afton Snow as secretary. This unit will meet on Monday evening in the Red Cross rooms and sew from 7.3o to lo o'clock. Plans are underway for a big dance and soldiers shower to be held in the near iswture, watch for the date. The entire town was canvassed last week for Red Cross sewers, and brought great results, when over fifty ladies were present at the rooms on Thursday to do their bit. The ladies are very comfortably located now in the large upstair room of the town hadl which will bo a much nicer and more comfortable room for the workers. The big Red Cross drive for members is not finished yet but the canvassers hope to be through this week, up to dale they have collected about 900. Have you got a Red Cross membership card hanging in your front window? If you haven't one be sure and see one of the canvassers as soon as possible as we do not want any flackers in Red Cross work. For Red Cross On Friday one of the best and most commendable affairs ever pulled off was when the teachers and pupils of the public school had a big time for the benefit of the Red Cross. Dinner was served at noon to nil the children in the auditorium> of the school and at 3 o'clock an afternoon tea was served to the parents and town people. Over uSO children were served in the most perfect order one can conceive of, not one hitch was found in the whole affair it was handled so systematically by Principal Mercer and his staff. The affair was managed by Principal Mercer and Messrs. Karl and Clarke and they were very ably assisted by the lady teachers the Misses Mercer, Snow, Davis, Sutherland and Mrs. Leavitt. The high school pupils also assisted in waiting table, washing dishes, etc. The teachers were assisted by a number of willing workers who managed the cooking, among thorn were: Mrs. Mercer, Mrs. Mac Turner, Mrs. Ida Wood. Mrs. Clarke, Mrs. Babcock, Mrs. Earl, Mrs. Toles-trup and Miss Gibb. It was a grand success from start to finish and a neat sum of money, was turned over to the secretary, .which will be used to purchase two new Singer sewing machines for use in the Red Cross rooms. The children are always willing to do all they can for patriotic purposes and we hope they will continue.
