Something will also be said about the unsatisfactory way in which the compulsory service bill is being enforced. Too many single men are being exempted, in public opinion, � Conservative paper has declared, party patronage usually runs riot where it is in the hands of men think more of satisfying "the boys" than they do of helping their country in times of stress. SOME CRITICISMS OF RECRUITING METHODS Lord Shaughnessy's criticisms o� recruiting as it is being conducted in Canada, expresses the views held by a host of Canadians for months. What is the sense of authorizing battalion after battellon In the same district? It Is truB positions are created lor jnany men, but Canada's part in this war is not intended to create commissions; it is to get battalions recruited and ready for service as quickly as possible. ^\Tiat Lord Shaughnessy had to say about Montreal and other points applies very effectively to Southern Alberta. After much effort, authority was given to raise a ICiltie regiment at Letbbridge. In our judgment that regiment should have been recruited to full strength before authority was given to raise other regiments in the same section of tlie province. WTiat has happened? After the Kiltie regiment was authorized,, new regiments were created at Blairmore, Macleod and Medicine Hat, A section of country along the Crow's Nest line betwTen the B. C. and Saskatchewan boundaries,' was asked to recruit: nearly , five thousand men. What is, the .result? . None of the regiments! have been recrnlted- to atrengtii '-as yet, simply because too many regiments are being raised in the area-named. The Kilties should have been allowed to .recruit to lull strength before other regiments were autliorlzed, was first in the field. Ijord Shaughnessy. criticizes .tlils system and rightly bo. Is It not better to have one regiment, with the ranks| filled and;preparing lor service,.than'. � to have four auth6rlzed and the possibility that they -will not be recruited to strength for some months. Ab the president of the C. P. R. Bays, recruiting In Canada lacks systematic direction; There are men en-Ilstlng'tii'roughout the country who are needed-on our farms. The farmer v.ln the field is really a soldier. If he -were ndt.raising food for our men In khaW In .-the trenches what would happea?! � Why, the men couldn't re- . main h^rthe trenches, that is all. On the other hand, eligible men who can be apared-are not being reached. Had we systematic recruiting, the men �who can'be ,spared would he given the meat: attention, while the men who are'needed at home would not be urged �to make:: the. Haorlfloe. The time may qome when all 'available men will. be required, but until that time r'eorpltlng shotild be confined to the clasBrofrjnen- who' can leave the co.untryt, wlthoiit .Impairing the food supply ot our: allied forces. � Lord Shaughnessy saya the CP.'.

The, patients, with airtlficial bands and arms, showed how they are learning to use, them. ErlvntetK; G. Fisher, of West Ontario, achieved what he declared afterwards to hare been his ambition. "Can you shake, hands?" asked the Queen; , ''Try. me, your "majesty," promptly replied ttte Canadian, so the Queen shook hands; and laughed merrily despite the: very convincing grip. The best way to fill up the ranks of the Kilties is to turn the ofllcers loose and-^ftud them throughout the south country. There are dozens of places the Kilties have never reached in the campaign to date. jTo the Editor Lethbrldge Herald: Dear Sir.-If you can find room in your valuable paper for my letter I shall esteem it a great favor. A tew days ago I was in a certain place In this city, where money orders, etc., can be bought. A fvlcud of mine was buying a niouey order and ho came over to mc and showed mo the order and the name of the mall order house to which he was sending it. The amount of order fairly staggered me and I was quite Iniiignanl, for I am one of those who think that It a place is good enough to make your living In, it Is good enough to spend your money in. 1 asked him why he was sending all that money away .vheu we have such splendid stores in Lotli-brldge and some of them at least compare favorably with the mall order houses. He began to explaiu and ran over the various goods he was sending tor. One item was 1- pairs of shoes, 2 pairs each for hls'.'i bbys and one pair each fbr his wifo and himself. 1 was just going to expostulate on the folly" of sepding a-.yay for so many shoes when our iuerchants have thousands of pairs oa their shclvea, when a little incident concernius shoes came to my mind. Three weeks ago my wife bought a j pair of shoes for our little girl, aged iour. The shoes were size six, the price two OoUars, and in less than a week there were holes in the soles of both shoes. Of course, they were paper. I don't know which was the worse, the manufacturer for making ^ such shoes, or the merchant for selling them, but 1 Imow who was the loser, and who did the swearing. It we could only wipe these paper shoo manufacturers off the face of the earth 1 am sure we should all have the smile of Providence, whoever that might be. Well, among other things, my friend was sending av.-ay for were garden ImplemBnts, he is already thinking of summer evidently. Among the rest was a lawn sprinkler. Imagine sending nearly a tliousan-d miles for a lawn sprinkler and all our magnificent hardware stores all stocked up with their summer goods. 1 thought that was the limit and l"told him so, but ha excused himself by saying that Ills lawn. sprinkler would only cost him 36% cents. Including freight and that a liardware man In Letbbridge had asked him Sa rents for the exact fac-simi)e. I told him I was sure that at least two of our hardware stores would have supplied him with a sprinkler within 10 or 15 cents of the mail order house. He wanted to know why they didn't let the public of Letlibrldge know their prices, as a working man has no time to he running around to all Uie stores to find out which is cheapest, and it is so much easier to sit down with a catalogue and order all you want with the prices right in front of you. I tried to point out to him that it was ridiculous to expect our merchants to sell everything as cheap as the mail or- How You May Throw Away Your Glasses The statement is wade that thousands wear eyeglasses who do not really need thorn. If you are one of these unfortunates, then thesn glasses may be ruining your eyes Instead of helping them. Thousands who w^'ar these "windows" may prove for themselves that they can dispense with glasses If they will get the following prescription filled at once: Go to any active drug store and bpI a bottle of Bon-Opto tablets; fill a two-ouuco bottle with warm water and drop In one Bon-Opto tablet. With this harmless liquid solution bathe the eyes two to four times dally, and you are likely to bo astonished at tlio results_ right from the start. Many who have been told that they have astigmatism, eyestrain, cataract, sore eyelids, weak eyes, conjunctivitis and other eye disorders, report wonderful benefits from the use of Uiisf prescription. Get this prescription filled and use it; you may so strengthen your eyes that glasses win not 'be necessary. Thousands who are blind or nearly so, or who wear glasses might never have required them If they had cared for Ibelr eyes in lime. Save your eyes before it is too late. Do not become one of these victims of neglect. Eyeglasses are only like crutches and every few years they must be chang-en to fit the ever-Increasing weakened condition, so better see If you can, like many others, get clear, hoalth.v, strong magnetic eyes through the �prescriptlou here given.

Then again, when you figure up the cost of your money order and stamps and war tax and freight or expenses you are not so much In pocket after all. 1 think It Is a great pity that so many thousands of dollar earned right here in Lethbrldge should be sent away to. mail order houses Instead of being spent here and helping to build up our city. I have four children, none of them working yet, but when they have finished their schooling I am hoping to find work for them in Lethbrldge in stores and so forth. But if 1 will not patronize the stores in my city their business is bound to decrease and they will not need so many clerks to work tor them.

There Is no" need to point at the several disastrous failures of co-operative retail stores we have had In Letbbridge, they were caused by dishonesty pure and simple, any concern would fail under the same circumstances. I am quite aware that the very sound of the word co-oporatlon is worse than poison to some people, some o� the so-called prosperous business men wlio live only for themselves and their own family, but I am glad to say there are others who even in this commercial age, have a thought for someone else besides themselves. They take pride in tlveir city, they want to see It grow ,they want to see comfortable modern hpuses for the. working people to llv4 in, and'the working people themselves contented and happy.
