These are some of the ' tilings the people are thinking follow-ing the fire and ther consideration. DON'T BE AN INCOME TAX SLACKER. There teems to he a disposition on the part of some people to misunderstand tile new income tax. hoping that refusal to try to understand the return forms will be an aid in escaping the tax. Such a procedure will avail them very little, for just as are the slackers under the military service act being Bitted out, ro wiil the slackers under the income tax be brought to time. People of Canada may just as well realize right now that this country is engaged in a war that is costing an immense amount of money. Out na- j tional debt today is around the two ! billion mark and the interest: charges : must be kept up. These charges are i not going to drop down our. of Heaven.  The people must "dig up'' if Canada ; is to hold her head up in this fight , for democracy. DESATE SO FAR REVEALS LITTLE. The debate on the speech from the : Throne in the Dominion House was very short, and really reveals very ; ^ little, but from the available reports ! the Opposition led by Sir Wilfrid Laur-! P-iet* THE COMMAND OF THE SEAS. The Winnipeg Free Press thinks that the shipping problem occupies today the relationship to ultimate victory that the munitions problem assumed in the first two years of the war. The provision of the new tonnage required to make good the losses sustained by the Allies, were the submarine menace already removed, would be a heavy task. But the submarine iB not conquered, and It is not expected by the most optimistic of authorities to be definitely held until the month of August. And such estimates are, as bitter experi-i ence has proved, far from reliable. Victory for Germany by submarine activity is still on the card3. An inconclusive peace forced on the Democratic Alliance by food shortage in Europe and inab'lity to transport the Vniied States armies to France would be tantamount to complete defeat in the field of battle. More, it would leave the German submarine master of the seas. The Allies are undoubtedly invincible on the surface, but until a satisfactory naval method disposing of the submarines has been discovered and ap- that nation which possesses Sentenced to six months for wife-beating, George Nitch if Tilsonburg, Ont.. is allowed to come homo when his baby dies.

The Daily Mail says that Baron Pirrio, chairman of the Harland and Wolff shipping commission, has been offered the post of minister of merchant shipbuilding. This offer was made after a conference with Sir Brie Geddes, first lord of the admiralty. X G. McCaLlum, 68, pioneer of the Northwest Territories, died at Nelson.

BOW ISLAND, HEARS (From Our Own Correspondent) Bow Island, March 130.-The regular monthly meeting of the Women's Institute held In tho rest room on Saturday was probably one of tho most interesting sossions ever conducted in Bow I aland. Mi\ Paterson of the school staff gave an intensely Interesting and eloquent uddress on the -advantages of "Military Training In Our Schools," enumerating tho various healthful and beneficial influences the Boy Scout movement exerted upon i growing boys, lie stated it was indeed a lamentable fact that many parents oppose this movement, laboring under the erroneous assumption ihut it fosters warlike inclinations, is an unwarranted extravagance and is purely a camouflage for German militarism. If such a belief does exist it. is indeed regrettable, as the Boy Scout movement has never been ttiinted with compulsory service and those who were cnntratlon, valor, thoroughness, integrity, accuracy, frugality and ambition but it stimulates an enlarged patriot* inn, Tho Boy Scout movement should not only excite and retain our admlra* tion but should receive Ihe hearty on-dorsatloti of every clear thinking individual. Our schools will never Hurt any field of physical activity more beneficial to the growing boy and any reduction in the number of units would bo inexcusable. After tho vice-president, Mrs, Albert Whitney, had expressed tho 'sincere gratitude of tho Institute to Mr. Patterson for Ills splendid contribution, tho afternoon programme was pro-coded with. The members then enjoyed a summary of the varied results of concentrated action on the part of speakers and delegates a? the Women's Institute convention held in Bdmonton recently, delivered in perfect oratory by Mrs. K. O. Ludtke, who with Mrs. A. Whitney attended the sessions representing the Bow island branch. That the Instituti in each and every province In tho Dominion took great steps forward last year was clearly demonstrated by the vibrant and dynamic messages, clear and thrilling in their sincerity, delivered by speakers at the Edmonton convention. The actual achievements in the year Just closing made u proud record, and Mrs, ljudtke aprealed to every member ol the local branch to begin now in earnestly and efficiently discharging full responsibility in the expan ! privileged In hearing .Mr. Patorsou I are convinced that no such ulterior j theit purposes exist, and that the moral ef-! slon and elevation of the local branch, ' thereby assisting in making the convention of i9lii a still greater triumph for provincial and dominion insU- Pivo years in Kingston ponltentlarv i " "a " the ' ?, 1 !?

Dealing with the proposals in the bill Mr. Boyle said it was proposed to make inspection obligatory upon city school boards next July. As to towns they would bo placed .in the same position as city school districts formerly but they would not be compelled to furnish treatment. Dr. Stanley said he agreed with the minister that it would not be advisable to make the regulation compulsory in towns, but when they had the hospital units in working order then they could iunke the Inspection and treatment comuulsory. 25,000 BOYS FOR THE Soldiers Of the Soil N army of twenty-five thousand boys from IS to 19 years,inclusive} working on Canada's farms this summer can produce enough front. food to feed several hundred thousand fighting soldiers at the i Because soldiers must eat to fight* producing food for them means just about the same thing as fighting itself. Last year eight thousand boys went on the farms of Ontario and this year most of them want to go back again. And most of the farmers they served with want them back agaii Why? Because those lads went at farm work patriotically, the same as the soldiers fight patriotically in the trenches-they took the work seriously because they realized it was for a serious purpose. And to-day the production of food looms more seriously, imperatively urgent than ever before. Starvation faces missions of people among our AJOes, and the cry reaches Canada for food, LT�ore food and yet more food. This is where Canadian Boys can do, if not a grown man's part, a very manly part, for his country. Full information, enrollment blanks, etc., from High School Teachers, Y. M. C A. Secretaries, Scout Masters and others who take an interest in boys and their welfare. Enrollment week begins March 17th and ends March 23rd. Boys who serve three months on farms will be presented by the Dominion Government with Bronze Badges ^ of Honour which correspond to the Military Service Medals of the soldiers. uuitiii|||iuutui||!'?^r u^ CANADA CANADA FOOD BOARD Ottawa 6 J.
