Communications under thia heading must bear the signatures of the writers. MR. URSENBACH'3 APOLOGY. The Editor Herald: Sir: Following is an extract or a letter received from O. F. Ursenbach, addressed to the "C.E.F., G.W.V.A., eoldiers' families, and all concerned:" "Now, for anything I have said that has been out of place or in any way considered a reflection on our boys, I most humbly apologize, and trust that the G.W.V.A. will sec that the nunc is placed before all concerned." I should be greatly obliged if you would publish this in your valuable paper, that the public may see that the Great War Veterans Association was not disposed to accept his last insulting letter, which ho termed an M'ology. j Yours truly, II. V. MADDISON, Secretary, 'Lethbrldgo Branch. A POINTED LETTER. Editor of the Herald, Sir: Dear paper creates valuable column space, so I will, curtail ac-cordin', but how hard it will drop on the corns of your "camouflage" man, who writes in blank guff, it grieves me to imagine. My subject is advertising. Some advertising, like Mr. TJrsenbach'n, trends toward pointlessness, some like Mr. Hardie's sticks grimly to the point, and is .consequently a business getter; but for sheer seductiveness neither of them can size up with an ad. I saw in a paper recently where each article quoted gave the price before aijd after supper. The lady Is told that before �upper she pays ?1.50 for her combination*, but if she goes home and adds six inches to her embonpoint, she can have the garment for, Oh! ever so much less, and after she had changed the "size.1' Thank you, ROBERT SAGE. A PROTEST FROM VANCOUVER Shaughnessy Military Hospital, Vancouver, B.C., Sept. 27, 1918. Editor of the Herald: Sir,-I wonder if you would allow mo a few remarks in defence of our boys against the "Ursenbach" accusation of vice which lately appeared in your columns, or have you shelved that subject. Does it occur to this pessimistic party that thousands of Canadian lads, reared in decent, wholesom^homes. carried clean minds and a noble -ambition from here into the very mouth of hell in the defense of Ursenbach and others of his ilk, wh6 criticize their actions and characters from the safe distance of about 7000 miles behind the line; where Borrow to Buy Cattle 13 "Mixed Farming" is the big moneymaker today. Of course, grain and fruit and Vegetables pay well-but beef and bacon, butter and cheese, are piling up the profits for the farmer. Milk more cows-fatten more cattle-raise more hogs. If you need money to do it, come to The Merchants Bank. We are glad to assist all up-to-date farmers. TH? M6RCHANT5 BANK Head Office: Montreal. OF CANADA Established 1864. LEI HBRIDGE BRANCH, . . R.

Did this person perhaps think that the boys who fell by, but did not flee from, that once invulnerable foe, poison gas, at Ypres; who again were heard from at Festu-bert and Givenchy, later at Regina Trench, again at Vimy Rtdge, at Hill 70, where GO,000, British dead lay to testify to. the strength of the position which they won, and held ever since: later through the intolerable mud and swamps of Passchendaele, 'where I got the wound which sent me home; later again this year in the marvellous records that our same Canadian boys have won; does he really �think, or expect us to believe, that these grand lads are, or were ever, the victims of vice and immortality? Brother Ursenbach, do you see your lad with his bayonet fixed, a bomb in each pocket, advancing against the machine guns of our common enemy? Put yourself in his place, drag your dead, weary legs through mile after mile of ankle to knee deep mud, lie for days in water and slime, lousy and freezing, then go over the top, and after three or four days' heavy fighting if you live, see how much your thoughts will run on vice? How dare you slander the lads who are going through on hourly hell to protect you? What do you know labout them? "Let him who is without sin amongst you, cast the first stone," and let him who speaks first know. I venture the statement that would be a fairly large estimate of known cases of men in France who have fallen victims to intemperance of action in any direction, and certainly that estimate would be many times too high when applied to strictly fighting. forces, who have neither time, opportunity, or inclination to' seek vicious or immoral recreation, and whom, personally, -.1.'have found maintained their memories either of a mother whose teachings were sacred and unforgot-ten, or else of a wife and child, the memory of whose loving eyes and baby voice has often been their sole consolation while the life blood flowed from them on the field which that blood had bought. Let Ursenbach reconsider. I am sir, Very sincerely yours, ()4G117 Lionel C. J. Toynbee, Late 7th Battalion. Ottawa, Oct. 3.-During the last 'three weeks the following quantities of sugar have been shipped to wholesale and retail grocers: Ottawa, pounds ........... 1,250,000 Hamilton, pounds ......... 1,717,000 Montreal, pounds ......... 2,835,000 Toronto, pounds .......... 8,258,700 Calgary, pouudB .......... 1,010,000 Judging from these quantities of sugar going to private consumers, there must be a considerable amount of household hparding going on, which should stop at once. Wholesale grocers are plainly informed that unless they procure sugar coupons from the Canada food board by Oct. 15, they will be unable to get sugar from refineries. "NO BILL" AGAINST GOODWIN'S SLAYER ' Victoria, Oct. 2.-Dan Campbell of Victoria, the police officer who shot and killed Albert Goodwin, the draft evader, while Goodwin was alleged to be resisting arrest near Cumberland some months ago, is not to stand trial oil a charge of manslaughter on which. he was committed. � The jury in the assize court this morning returned a "no bill" and Campbell accordingly was discharged by Mr. Justice Murphy. �UY YOUR MEN'S BOOTS AT THE HUDSQN'8 BAY SHOE SALE ANCHOR-DONALDSON LINE POPULAR SERVICE Canada to Glasgow For full Information apply to Agents or Company'* Office, 270 Main 8t, Winnipeg.
