Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Minajer Vour King and Country Need You Right Now ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAS The Teutons and Bulgarians have Joined haads in northern Serbia, and have forced a free passsse of the Dan- ube river, which ivffl afford a means of replenishing the munition supply of the Bulgarians. It is said the Aus- tro-Germans are advancing on a wide front from the north. That the attitude of the Bulgarian people is not in accord with that ol the government, is indicated by riots and small rebellions which have tak- en place. There is still anxiety over the atti- tude of Greece, but diplomatic circles in England can credit her with no more dangerous intentions than, re- maining neutral. There has been some heavy fighting along the French front in France. On the east, the attack on Riga has as- sumed a new phase. Japan has become a party to the agreement not to conclude a separate peace. British casualties to date are plac- at PROPOSAL SHOULD ADOPTED The Daughters of the Empire should their effort to the young men, -who have attempted to enlist and filled, marked in some dictlnctvt'e! manner, in order that they will not be subject to criticism from persons ignorant of their failure to Join tie forces. ..There are many cues of.

It be 'hoped that the Alexander Chapter will succeed in.amusing attention throughout the OUs Very important matter, and that action will be taken by the proper authorities conditions from Calgary or Edmonton, or other places In Canada. Create the regiment, select the commanding officer, and enthusiasm will be Im- mediately aroused In recruiting for the now organization. A systematic ot recruiting throughout the south, led by a live, popular and ef- ficient commanding officer, ought to bring together enough men to form a regiment. As long as the arrange- ment does not provide for an actual egiment to be located at Lethbyidge, the plan of recruiting outlined, in our estimation, is not likely to meet with success. It would a very long time to recruit the required number of men. Lethbrldge's request that a regi- ment should be Quartered here for the winter was reasonable. This cliy has done nobly since the war commenced In raising funds for patriotic pin-poses and in recruiting as well. Its patriot- ism has been, real, and when it asked for the placing here of an overseas force, In addition to the Battery, it was not demanding too much. It appears to the Herald that the suggestion made not long ago by Mr. J. Jones that a brigade of artillery should be raised here, is the most feasible proposal yet offered. Leth- bridge is largely an artillery head- quarters for this province, and most of our men are inclined to serve in that branch of the service. When it was possible to recruit a Battery here ouple of it seems quite reasonable to maintain that an entire brigade could be gathered together in it least a month. An attempt should he put forward to have this idea ser- iously considered, and If at a'H possi- ble adopted. The artillery is one of the most useful branches of the ser- vice in this war, and when the mo- ment comes to force the Germans back, thousands of men will be need- ed to man the big guns. A CALL TO CANADA'S MANHOOD Preaching at St. Andrew's church, King street, Toronto, on the call to Canada's young manhood to fight for the -wood's freedom on the blood- stained fields of Flanders, the pastor Dr. EaUin, said: "Our.hfiarts are hot -with anger to- Bight, and he vvho cannot he angry with iniquity-lacks development. Our hearts are hot with anger at that un- paralleled'.atrocity, committed recent- ly In frail-woman, whose only wronir lay in helping those who nad been ruthessly driven from their happy homes, who had given her life to the alleviation of suffering, mur- dered hy nftitish hate.

And when Sir Hichard McBrido stuck Canada for for two submarines previously quoted at two submarines that -swam like a., stone and dived like a Sir Richard did that, wo repeat, it cer- tainly meant more work for tbe Marine Department.

Then there is the Hospitals Com- in a pamphlet which tells what Can- mission whose duty is to look after f ada ought to do after the war in or-' tnt. returned -soldier, shelter his con- I der to pay debts and build up the valescence, provide for' his family, d country. These xkas arc neither startling nor' highly original because they have been entertained by think- ing' people for- lo, these many years. The chief idea is that the government shall de.elop an immigration policy cet him a job, put him on his' feet again. This commission, which should have started work when the war be- gan, got down to brass tacks about a month ago. By that time the war had beat than to it and the sad pro- which will reatly- put people on the of maimed, halt and .blind, land, instead of letting them drain ,vas aircaay straggling back to our ,_._ to shores nobodv r RICKED UP IN SSING THE BUSY MAN off into tae big Canadian cities which they are ticketed by the steamship' and rabvay companies. In other words, .settlers must be ettl.d. Not only must the right kind of settlers be brought to' Canada, but they must be personally conducted, so 'to speak, to their locations and helped, il necessary, with seed, ma- chinery and money loans. This is the. only way Canada will ever be able to meet the tremendous obligatiocs she has incurred. Also it is the only way to prevent the city from stealing what was intendM for the country. For example. I year fifty-six thousand supposedly agricultural im- migrants reach-.d Saskatchewan from England, but only sixteen thousand of them took up homesteads. Dr. Roche could never explain where he lost the other forty thousand, but the cities oi the west, which know what it is to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for charitable reliel during the winter, could Ml him a thing or two. There is also reason to believe that many who came out to Canada farmers or agricultural laborers never saw a plow in their lives and ;never expect- ed to see one. Such an one was the out-o'-work who told a Western mayor that he had coine to 'Canada .because the ap- ples and wheat sheaves in the Do- minion government's window on toe Strand had convinced him that this was a land of "milk and 'oney. "What VTBfc you in London as'icd tbe mayor. "I was .a lamplighter, sir." "And what work did yoiu as a lamplighter, espeot to 'find in Can- ada We don't :light lamps we. push a button." This was a puz- zler to the poor Cockney, but as he was classified as an agricultural lab- oier, Mr. Mayor got 'him a job as gardener with a iriend of his where- he signalized his knowledge of out- door conditions by digging up all the hardy, perennials and throwing them away as weeds.. How to Settle the Land Mr. Magrath's constructive Idea is that the proper men to till the fields arc not lamplighters. -.With this idea goes a lot of advice about making country life attracthe for tte man and convenient for tbs ra- dials, good roads, social centres, rur- al telephones, -rural' mail, electric power, tho elimination of drudgery, cheaper transportation, better .dis- tribution, cooperative- marketing, prices., for farm all j the counsels ot perfection, in fact, with which we are more or. Uss fa- miliar. Another 'part of. the idea is that one hundred and farms are as a rule too, big for the .class of settlers we must -aim to get, and that much better .results will be ob- tained from forty-acre homesteads in- tensively a policy which not only utilizes every acre for all it is worth but leaves more land free for other settlers. This is not a new idea of Commis- sioner Magrath's. Many people have' thought of it before gains a new instancy because the end of the war will let loose many millions ,of men who will not be satisfied to drop :back into their old ruts. They will .seek new countries where life and property are 'safer, ;taxea more, rea- sonable, living conditions where a man's a man for a' that, and doesn't have to. take his bat oli to a sniffy squire who racks-Ms, rent .and pays him' fourteen shillings a .week 'for ten hours a day. toil. Can- ada answers to this description and is bound to get a big share ot the land-lookers If the government only goei after them in the way. It seems to be Mr. 'Magrath's opinion that the not going alter them, and what he wants, tliqugh he doesn't say it -in so many w'ords, is for the government ,tp stop -th'nihle rigKins and get busy: some real work .for Canada. Not Strong on Constructive Iden Constructive ideas invariably visit Conservative Governments about twenty minutes late. They don't ap- pear to hear ot them, until everybody else has talked theni and come to a conclusion.
