The farmers of Huron county, On- tario, have donated 8G carloads o( ap- potatoes, etc., to the Imperial government as a war donation.

Bat Trafalgar followed, with the flotilla blockaded at Cadiz issuing out to con- vey the hosts. History has a way of repeating it- self, and should tha mad einperoe gain a footing with his forces in Cal- ais, and bring his blockaded fleet out to attempt the crossing, we may yet see a naval combat that will go down in history in the opportunity ttey are craving for given to Jellicoe and his men. ECONOMIZE LIKE REST OF US The Herald has taken occasion two or three times lately to express the need for further retrenchment in civic expenditures. Its reason Jor taking this ground is, that in times ot stress when business men, as well as the fact, every class in the community, are reducing expen- ses down to the minimum, the city should do the same. Economy should be practised in civic affairs just as it is practised in mercantile concerns and homes of the city. We do liot say that men should be thrown out ot employment so much as we maintain that salaries should he re- duced- to the lowest possible point. "We realise that the Commissioners have difficult situations'to handle and we do not want to unduly criticise them, but we think they will agree with the conclusion tiftt the city should econ- omize just as much, as individuals is on sood ground. WHY NOT AN INVESTIGATION? One of the defenders of the removal of the "postmaster from office offers the excuse that a Conservative in the city bad recently lost his commission for taking affidavits. It is a Very picayune excuse, and as far as we can learc-has As a matter cf'fact, there are as many Conserva- commissions as Com- missioners for taking. Affidavits in this city'as there are Liberals, and no at- tention has been paid to a man's political views in making these ap- pointments, and the same can .said of other officers under the Provincial :Government in this district. The lo- cal Conservative patronage committee have to find some better apology for the removal of Mr. Higinbotbam. They might also eiplaln to an indig- nant public why an Investigation was granted -when they were removing the postmasters at Magrath and -flrassy and such an investigation was refused to the postmaster at Leth- Drtdge. :The explanation likely lies in the fact that they were unable to pro- duce charges which would warrant the {removal of the Lethbridge postmaster. mushroom fields growing France, mind supposedly jeen a quarry for years, owned by a German company.

PLENTY OF MATERIAL THERE Ralph Connor wants to go to the tront as. a Chaplain with the second Canadian contingent. When this war is over we want the story of the part the Canadians .played in it preserved for future generations to read. Ralph .Connor Is just the man to have at the .front with this purpose in view. He is always looking for scenes for volume of -fiction, and in Europe he would be very easily able to gather material for a volume that' would in- ppire the present as well as future Cenaratloni with a deeper and a more luting patriotism and a higher regard Jot Cauda'l part in this war.
