Considerable, interest lias been tak- m in the development of the tlax In- dustry in this district. A lot of valu- able information has been fathered and all that can be. done by corres- pondence has been done. It would be a good move for the Douril of Trade, ami 'money '.veil spent to send the secretary over to the old country to investigate at close hand the condi- tions contributing to the success .of the industry, the amount of ilax ne- cessary to keep a factory going, and the capital required. These are prac- tical questions and the Herald be- lieves that .no better man than the secretary could be secured for the purpose, and also that if the condi- tions warranted (t no Industry could be more easily started.

In inculcating this there is a responsibility placed on- their elders, and there is no nobler office than shouldering the same. It is foolish to ascribe anything of militarism to the movement. So Ions as 'we aro a free nation, and wish to avoid anything in the way of conscrip- tion as carried1 on in other countries, it is important that the young should he trained to voluntarily estimate their uses to their country should they at any time be called upon to exercise the same.
