"Ah," saya the brilliant S. B. T., "but wc don't need oavalry, ami of course, it's the 9000 odd horsea tliat take up all the room. I'd only liond Infantry." Which is another point wherein the S. B. T. errs. - 0.000 infantry do not need 9000 odd hor.scs perhaps; -.but 9000 Infantry represent half a division, and the number of horses to a division, according to tho authority already quoted, Is -yit far short of r�,000; or 2,.')00 to' the aforesaid !),000. And today, as every S. B. T. know.'!, artillery is needed Jn even greater quantity than our pre-war establlsh-mcnt, and big gnns take a lot of moving. Indeed, it fs one of the-^S. B. T.'s chief defects that, he consistently forgets to count ^ything except bayonets and guns. As a matter of fact the 18,000 men of a div-iTlsion include not much more than 12,000 swords, sabres and bayonet.i (reckoning all the employed men and the brigade a&d regimental headquar- .

The minimum amount which the loninister of finance asks for is ?300,-000,000. The larger amount will be I raised if possible. \ There are no 20-year bonds In this .issue. Five and IB-year bonds will be ' available in the new loan. The gelling campaign for the new i loan will begin Monday, October 28th, : and win continue until Saturday, Nov-' ember 16th. The details of the issue follow: Through the prospectus of the 5th I Canadian war loan-the Victory Loan I of 1918-the Dominion of Canada will iask for a minimum of $300,000,000 iwith the right to accept all or any ! part of subscriptions in excess of that sum, to be used for war purposes only and to be spent wholly in Canada. The rate of interest will be 5 1-2 per cent ; per annum, payable May Ist and Nov-ember 1st, and the denominations $50, $100, $500 and $1,000. The loan will 1 bo offered in two maturities-5-year bonds due November 1st 1923, and 15-year bonds due November 1st, 1933.

Thus a $50 bond if paid for in full before November 16th, the date of the close of the subscription, costs just the Fifty Dollars; a $100 bond costs One Hundred Dollars and so on. Every bond holder -will receive a half year's interest at 5 1-2 per cent per year on May 1st, 1919; that is, on a $100 bond he will receive $2.75 interest on May lat.

Ltt* aOG lit St. Eatt, OALGARY ANCHOR-DONALDSON LINE POPULAR SERVICE Canada to Glasgow Far full information apply to Agents r Company's Office, 270 Main St, The strategist of the breakfast table for the niost part scorns tactics. Strategy and the higher strategy which handles not dlvi8i(ms or corps but whole armies, is his pasBlon. Just lately ho has been having a gloriohs time of- it. He has been snatching up armies, American, British, French, Italian, Czecho-Siovak, Japanese, or what not, and hurling them , now against iVladivostok, now agalnst the^ Alsne, now leading them on the Murman coast, and anon landing them at Ostend and turning' the whole Oernian line. And he has always been ready at a moipent's notice to divert them against the Trentino or the Salonika front. It woiiW be a salutary thing for the strategist of the breakfast table if he would spend li few minutes in reading some of the official figures regarding troop transport, such as are to be found in the Field Service Pocket Book of the British army, or the little pamphlet fssned /to the press some time ago by tJie war office. Ho would learn from these sources that the maximum normal capacity of any double line of railway is reckoned, in England, at 6 trains per hour each way; that a good complement for a two-engined train is 144 wheels (at 6 or 8 to the coach aiid 4 to the truck)! and that eight men (with their equipment) go to a compartment and five campartm�Rt8 to a coach, and eight horses or one foqr-wheeled vehicle to a truck. From this he can deduce tha^ a train might carry, say, four hundred men, sixteen hoiMs and two wagons.' He can then farther deduce the painful truth Uiat only some 1,200 men .an bottr cftn paea any given point in the same direction, .with, out allowing at all for accidents or delays in getting men in and out and turning the trains round;.and ft must ha remebered that time lost in thlf sort of job can never be regained. The eame lesson is taught by the Field Service Pooket book, which lays down 76 trains as the requisite for a cavalry divlelon. This would take are Canada's Victory Bonds jANADA'S Victory Bonds are the solemn promise of the Dominion of Canada to the holders that Canada will repay, at the time stipulated in the bonds, their full face value in money; and will pay interest at the rate stated in the bonds, every six- months. As a financial investment Canada's Victory Bonds are in the first rank of-the world's investments because: -the security of the principal and interest is certain as anything human can be, being nothing less than the entire assets of Canada, the pledged honor of the people of Canada and all the assets of all the people of Canada, ,r : -^they are the most "liquid" form of investment; they can be promptly turned into cash at any time, -they bear interest which, if saved and compounded, at ordinary bank interest rates would double the amount of the original investment in about fourteen years. They are also free from Dominion taxation, present or future. "CHJR the investment of estate funds, trust ^ lunds, sinking funds and all other funds which by law or other necessity must be invested in unquestioned securities, Canada's Victory Bonds are the premier investiDcnt. Executors, trustees, municipalities arijd public service corporations and all others with trust or sinking , funds to invest, can render to Canada valuable patriotic service by investing their funds in Cana
