There is a heavy movement' of this steel, particularly between the Soo and Montreal and the Soo and Toronto. The munition board claimed that the railways are charging 2%c more for shell-bars than for commercial bars and masked for a billet clas- sification of steel bars in Canada the same now in effect in international traffic. The representative.'! ot the railways did not deny that higher rates are being charged for shell bar than for steel ingots, but justified the charge on the ground that shell bars cal: for higher classification because before shipment they, have gone through two additional stages of manufacture. The board reserVed Judgment in the matter. A Victory Bond is profitable, because its owner will receive at least five and a half per cent, interest as long as he keeps the bond. After the war everybody will have to pay high taxes, but the Dominion will not tax these Victory Bonds or the Income from them, frhere is fUso a chance that th^y may be sold at a premium it the waji' ends soon. lOaO No. 1 Young Ewes Ramboulet and Lincoln Cross These; sheep are in the yej!y,-be?t- of condition and inn^ fee sold immediately.

Attendant must keep facilities for washing her own hands, soap, hail brush and paper towels in clean place and never touch the patient or patients utensils without afterward cleansing her own hands thoroughly. ..Running water is better and safer than a basin of weak disinfectant kept for the hands alone.
