H. McLean is in individual wiiose tongue is truly "an unruly At a meeting ot the Pensions' Committee at Ottawa he is reported to have remarked that UID "average wife of a private was oi the servant class before marriage.' The remark came forth from the sub- mitting by Mr. Bonncr lhal the family 'ot a deceased soldier should be placed beyond need without call for assistance outside. He urged that J60 a month be granted to a widow. To Which nrigadier-Ocneral McLean replied that women would be encour- aged idleness, with the remark as to "servant class" following. The remark of ihc Brigadier-General 'deplorable under all circum- Stances and particularly deplorable in the circumstances in which it was made. There was an offensive flavor in it and a show of had taste which ill becomes a soldier and a geutleman, To talk of "ssrvant class" is neither correct nor just to any and all pf the "average wives" of the private.' II a was in the habit of using her hands in domestic service, as H f. called, there was something ennobling In her willingness to do so. It should have been considered late season will affect the acre- ago to ho sown, but many farmers have expressed their determination to wort and night, including Sun- days, and seeding will be continued much later than in ordinary years.

May Monday and THE PLAGUE OF STRAY HORSES It is high time that those who pos- sess horses which they cannot keep under control should be visited with a greater penalty than having to pay the cost of impoundment. The offence is not a new one but has been in evi- dence trom time to lime. That those who take a pride in their roens and their lawns should have put up with the intolerable nuisance having all they take delight ir. stroyed by these marauders, -aes by day and more frequently by ght, is unthinkable, particularly in city which can boast of being up-to- ite.

THE DEADLOCK IN THE ADRIATIC From present reports it looks if I all attempts to settle the Adriatic with satisfaction lo all par- ties have failed, and the situation IF a threatening one in the nature of a conflict of races which it Diay arome. Tho Adriatic situation is altogether a 'complex one and It is not an easy one lo unravel, It is mainly connect- ed with the port of Fiume, with the name of D'Annunzto continually in the forefront. This individual, with some- thing of the temperament ot a knight- errant ot old, and with the vanity of tho poser, has taken a large part in adding to the present embroglio. Our moro recent acquaintance with tho Adriatic; question has been the intervention of President Wilson, caused wmo interesting rtlplo inalio and at the' same time considerably helped to cm- Mtter Italian feeling against tho TJnitcd States. The intervention of the- President was considerably weak- ened by the present attitude of thn States to the League o( Nations, in the principle therein expressed by those who havo shown their opposition to if, in tho assumption that the Slates should not lend themselves to bo into any European con- troversy. To repeat an old sto.rr, i[ is by this well known that Italy, as an Inducement to enter the war on tho side ot the Allies, -was promised certain concessions which wore re garded as satisfying her nations; aspirations', by Great Britain and Stance. These. were embodied by what Is known as me secret Treaty ol London, to which President Wilson liter raised objections. By this treaty HoJy. was promised extension of terr! tory on the Tyrolean front adjoining Austria, a portion of what Is callec tho Islrlah peninsula, part ol Dalmatla oji.Jhe nou-ltallan side of the Adriatic Meh after all are grown up boys When thu light in tho House at Ot lawa suddenly played out on Thurs day night, the members in the short period of sudden darkness burst ou in singing.

The slight fall preparation of land, the late spring, the feed shortage and weak power stock all obtrusive influences In tlio present situation. Good The seeding Is from twenty to thirty! days later by the calendar than It was last year varying with locality. This is Important In view of the cle- ment ot time Involved In completing (he seeding under broad tanning with abort labor and short or weak power slock. If quick general seeding were possible the prospects are the best In half a dozen years, there was heavy raiii and also heavy, snowball last autumn and heavy winter over tho whole "f the province.
