Of the companies that have reported this year to date the ratio ot losses is about 20 per cent, as com pared with 70 per cent, last year and 76 per cent, the year previous. The dry year was apparently a good one from the point of view ot the Uail, and whether the drouth has anything to do with the amount of hail Is an old question. bravery and devotion to duty.

Abbie, as he was familiarly and lovingly known among a host of friends, .was a young man of great promise, a really "A" man physically, mentally and morally. He was a graduate of McGllI university and after a few years of work in Canada, accepted a professorship in a university in China. He was offered the professorship of physics In one of Iho largest universities in (Jhina at a tempting salary, but the call of duty was greater than morley. He returned to Canada last year, volunteered in the Iloyal Air Force, and after three months' service in France has made the supreme sacrifice. Since he was reported missing the hope has been often expressed that he brought his machine safely down and was a prisoner in Gormany, but that hope has vanished by the recent message.
