It Is generally conceded by flnan-olal uuthorltlQS that within the. circle known us the Investing public there Is a substantial proportion whoso sums of money available for'Investment run from |f>,000 to $2r,,l)0i>. To thnt class of Investors the fifteen-year Victory bond provided for In the next Issue should prove particularly attractive. Not only Is It so hy reason of Its gilt-edged character, but plus this Is the .ri 1-2 per cent rate of Internal that It yields, which, on an Investment of |2.r>,non Klves the holder the nice little sum of $1.:i7i". annually - and (roc from taxation at that. The United Status Liberty Loan, on the oilier hand, would on it like investment, vie hi hut $1,06::, or J;',i:; u vear ll'ms. l''rom the combined standpoint of stability and yield, the fifteen-year Victory bond will rank as the best (iovernmenl security In the world. The fuel that trust companies have Ihelr eye upon It as a preferential investment Is one of (he strong proofs of Its attractiveness. And then another fact to be tuketi Into consideration Is that both actually and relatively tin; Issue will steadily appreciate in market value as llmo parses. Call to Well-to-do-Men. Put. aside altogether from the tn trinslr value of the second Victory Loan, and particularly the fifteen-year maturity, as an Investment, there Is a definite and direct call to the men who can command five to twenty-five thousand dollars to subscribe to li. As a matter of fact, It la the opinion "nioiig the hlghost financial authorities In the Dominion who have given particular attention to this study of the subject, th,at If the Mlnlste- of Finance Is to secure the mue.li-deslred nnd much-needed half a billion dollars la great deal will depend upon the response of Investors In this five to J twenty-five thousand dollar group of [ Investors. There in no �aer!flee about It. The fart thai the security Is gilt-edged and the yield gener.nis, precludes such an liit-rprntatlon. .Men are not sacrificing when they are buying bargains, whether they h0 merchandise or bonds. But whet her there Is an element of sacrifice or not. then.' in entailed an element of patriotism. Whether the war ceases this year, or next, Canada needs every dolltf of the half billion which the Minister of Finance seelu. II this country is to fulfil lis pari In the struggle, and perforin Its duly towards the Canadian lads who are sacrificing ihelr lives at the front. And the ileslderutuin can be secured.

London, Oct '�'!.- 1 fanadiau Pre�s di-patcb from Ileiiter's). -An official repott from Field Marshal Haig. dat id July L''i. covering the operations since the 11rnt week of December lasi has been published. Its chief Interest Me* In (Sen. IIuIk's account or the lier-lnnn offonslve of March 21 He begins by emphasizing that the difficulties created hy the transition from an offensive to a defensive policy, necessitated by the collapse of Russia, were accentuated by thp reorganization of the British divisions from a 13-baUa-llou to a Id liatcullon basis and'the extension of the British front to Paris. Mean while, the largo reserves which the onnmy was able to create by transferring numerous divisions from tho ea.-tern front enabled htm to carry out extensive training with unlta completed to establishment Altogether at least (A Gorman divisions participated in the operations of March 21, ti number considerably In excess of the total forces uomposliig the entire British army In France. The total Urltlsh force on the original hsttlefronl 011 the morning of .March 21 was 2(i infantry divisions, throe cavalry divisions, of which l'j iufuntry divisions were In line. The (iermuns. however, failed to disturb the Urltlsh Hnd French unities as they hoped to do nnd u continuous defettslvo line was maintained, although It was necessary to give up n great deal of land, mainly the territory despoiled by the Oortnuns In their retreat of 1!M7 and which was not strategically vital to tho allies, in retiring, the Meld marshal says, it was thought best to movo back more rapidly on the south. Tho territory there had heon overrun by the Cor-mans and French assistance could reach that sector much more rapidly than tliu front further north. In addition, the southern end'of tho lino was not so Important as tho centre and the north. Instructions necessary to this end accordingly were given the British 5th army oarly In Fobmary. Thick for which onvoloped the battleflold on thq mornings of March 21 and 22, undoubtedly masked tho fire of enemy artillery .machine guns and rifles. The southern sector was lightly hold and It had not boon possible to construct formidable defenses there. Theso conditions enabled the Germans to penetrate and turn the flanks of certain localities. The field marshal concludes by saying:  A much larger number of troops would, therefore, have been required to render tho defense of tho rivers Sommo and OIbo secure." TO THE RED CROSS Stockholm, Oct. 21.-The last of tho American Bed Cross workers In Bus-sin reached Stockholm today uftor n four day trip by truln from Potrogrnd. Tho party consists of Mujor Allan Wardoll, dipt. J. \V. Andrews nnd Dr. D. M. Davidson. The Bolshevik! showed the Bod Cross party every courtesy, and Sverdloff, president of tho Russian Uod Cross, und many Holshovlkl ottl-(dais, sought to obtain tho assistance of tho American Hod Cross to prevent tho wholesale starvation of non-com-tmtants in Russia this winter. Tho Amorlcnns looked uftor the entente prisoners at Moscow und Potro-grud after tho departure of tho entente missions and relieved tho condition of many unfortunates In Busslun jails. Ifnltod States Vlco-Conaul Leonard, who held the post ut Aatra.khu.11, und Vlco-Consul Burr vver* bttfh in jail at Moscow when the Red Croaa party left, Ini.t the Norwegian legation had bwn assured that they would soon bo released. Theso two olllclals wore first imprlaonod at Tsurtsin nnd have boon prisoners for nearly two months. They have undergone groat privtv FOR THE SOUTH Kdmonton. Oct. 22.-Schools for Alberta's new Mennonlte set tiers are to he established at once. The de partment of education is cilliiu" fur tenders for the ereitioti of a number 01 new buildings in the several colonies In the south country, and others will follow in due course. Fight school districts will be organized and It Is Intended to have some, of the schools In operation during the early winter John T Uoss. deputy minister of education, has Just returned from a trip to the southern part, of the province, where he personally visited the Mennonlte settlements anil arranged for Immediate action 011 the school problem, In accordance with the policy previously laid down by the minister. The Metmonltes arc lo have schools quite like other folks. The new settlers are disposed to be law-abiding and to Conform with Ho-Canadian way of doing things. Mr. Boss reports. They were given to understand that no except Ions were to be made for them, but that they were to have schools under precisely the same conditions as Knglish. French or Canadian people. Some of them asked If teachers could not be allowed 011 the permit system, hut the answer was a decisive nay. All the teachers for these new schools are to he fully qualitied, and that point has been made clear and definite. The handling of the situation has been facilitated considerably by tho appointment of the inspector for each district as ofllclal trustee, and tho erection of schools, engagement of teachers and other details will bo under his direction. Mr. Boss visited the settlements ut Standoff. Buley. the Mclntyre ranch and In the vicinity of Stirling. Raymond and Magratli, at nil of which places the Mennonltes have bought lands. The settlements average uuout 1U0 persons each. The newly arrived settlers are not of qulto the same kind as the other Mounotiltes |n the west, il seems. Mr. Boss found them professing to be fr>-lowers of John Hutor, anil, therefore, known as Hitlerites. They uro thorough-going communists, and their villages have been laid off on it true community plan, with a common dining hall anil other features of neighborly nearness. They don't want to light, but Ihelr general attitude anil opinions gave Mr. Uoss the Impression thut no dltllculty would he experienced from their presence In Alberta.
