DUirifcutott, Lethbrklg At the very commencement of the war and as soon as Canadian troops began to mobilize for active service, the question arose as lo how their wives and nullifies were to be main- tained during their, absence. Ja not few instances em- ployers offered lo continue to pay wages as formerly in whole, or in iart to the families of mcii who hart been in their si-uvice. Many cases which were unprovided, came undsr local notice and funds wore started in several of large cities lo care for such. It. soon be- came evident that while certain dis- tricts could provide well for the fam- lies within their boundaries, 'there would be other cases, equally dcserv- ng, in danger of being overlooked, fence arose the demand for a centra! ir national fund that would consoli- iate ar.d support local effort and bf1 available where this proved insuffici- ent. In answer to numerous .requests lis Royal Highness, the Governor- General of Canada, took the initia- ive in tjhis matter and the Canadian fund was organized with Us Majesty the King as patron. It s a body corporate by virtue of an ct of parliament and is empowered; I To collect, administer and distr nte 'a fund for' the assistance in ca; f need of the wives, children and de- ende-nt relatives of officers and men csidents of Canada, whft, during tl resent war, may be on .active sef ice with the naval and militar orces of t-he British Empire: an j-reat Britain's This centra odyMias a distinguished list'of yici residents ..and an. executive commit ee iriado iip of leading men from ev ry province: of tie Dominion.

A .full measure of autonomy-is granted, to these loml bodies, yet, for the sake of uniformity, certain conditions have Iweii laid down and cordially accepted No society, however zeal- ous, 'that has a limited membership only should undertake, unaided, so large an enterprise If continue to gov to the front, there will be in nearly everv community a large number of families justly en- tilled to receive assistance from the fund, and the work involved in .col- lecjbmg and administering the fund will be of such and mag- nitude as to require tfce active sup port of a large and representative body bf men and women. In the-Province of Alberta, .on 'ac- count at the great distances, it was considered advisable to form two branches, North and South Alberta, the dividing being the northern boundary of Township 39 WHO ARE ENTITLED TO ASSIST- ANCE FROM THE FUND 1. To have a just claim en the Fund, it must be shown that at the time of reporting for duty the soldier was a resident of Canada and supporting in Canada, the ily or-'deaiendent relative who now ap- plies for aid. '2, The fund recognizes as being on the same not onl} Canadian volunteers and regulars, but also the Not many families will be left total destitution. According to a.circular issued by the Central committee in Ottawa, tha wife of a married soldier (Canadian) will have sent to her each month by the. paymaster-general of the Militia department at Ottawa, a cheque for as a separation allowance. The wife of a British Reservist will receive each month 3'Jc (Is 7d) per day for herself..anrl 6c (3d) per day for oach childj with a maximum of J8c so that a wife and thres children would .receive from the Im- perial Governraent- about 57c a day, making per month. Again, there are often wage aarn- s in the family who do or can con- tribute in part towards its support. Further many employers are contin- uing to pay to the family of a srv- dicr on active service, the whole or part of the airiest such soldier as an employee had been ac- customod to earn. All these sources ncomc should be inquired into by lha local Relief Committee and carc- 'ully considered i when calculating what amount a family may justly re- ceive from the fund. i At a meeting of'the executives of; ;he North and South Alberta branch-! it was decided that the following j amounts may be justly paid to de- pendents during the bread-winner's absence Per month Wife on.her owtf.'accoimt ........536.00 Allowance for one child between 10 and 15 years of age 9.00 .Allowance for child between 5 and 10 years''pf age 6.00 Allowance for one, child under 5 jeirs OF age. 5 00 -With a maximum allowance of SfiO.OO for the largest family. THE CENTRAL ORGANIZATION As custodian of the ce-miaon fund, the Central Organization will he ex- pected to exercise-'general oversight over the methods activities of all- the txranehes. .A record of' all names, so far as obtainable, of men to the fiont, will be kept pttiwH and local organizations v, be monthly to "send in a statement of the names on their lists ithe amcants being allowed to each. A moment's reflection will show two obvious reasons why a central fund is desirable 1st. ability of- communities to raise, funds and the claims made up- on organizations will be far Trom uniform. Some branches will b.e ible to collect more than they local- y need, others vill demands be- their power to satisfy.

Its price has not advanced, although there has been a great increase in the cost of cream of tartar, from which it is made.

Mr. Retail Merchant; your busi- ness depends entirely on the prosperity of your customers. Canadian factories running at top speed mean top-notch business for Canadian merchants. The merchant himself can be a big help in bringing this about. Consumption of goods "Made in Canada" means employment for every Canadian workman. Mr. Merchant, urge your customers to buy Cana- dian goods for their sake; for your own sake. Every Canadian faces the responsibility of keeping Canada is the way you can do your and it is to your own advantage. ,4 Ptuh Them Because They're "Made in Canada."
