OUR POINT OF'VIEW If there Es one regrettable feature of' a short campaign it is the fact that it "may stop Wil- frid Ijiurier's proposed trip to the West.

German Between Sage's and'Roy's ys M Now is the time for reports of re- cord breaking crops. year or so ago "Every year dozens of Horticultural and civic improvement societies start up in different parts of the countrj and after two or three years fizzle out. The reason for this failure is that the societies are generally or- ganized on a semi-ct aritable basis instead of on a basis approximating j 'value received.' For two three years people may be willing to give a year to help along a good -cause but after that it gets monoton- ous. Everyone has demands upon him "for charity which he cannot ig- nore even when he is hard pressed but things that are neither business nor- ctiartcy-soon gets, stale and in hard times are the Qrst to get neg- lected. There is only one way of tid- ing over the inevitable waning of enthusiasm that'comes in every so- ciety's life and that -is by giving peo- ple something for their money. The one horticultural society in America which gives the most for the money and which therefore offers the great- est inducement to join is, I believe, the Ottawa Horticultural Society which has been the main factor of transforming Ottawa in twelve years from one of the. worst looking to the very best looking city in Canada. "Everybody who pays a dollar i year to the Ottawa Horticultura Society gets two dollars worth o plants and bulbs. is if he bought these plants and bulbs at re tail in the ordinary way he woulr have to pay dollars for them The Society can afford to give them to each member arid still save n por tiou of tho dollar fee, liccstusc i buys these plants wholesale. Thes are arranged in groups suited to th choice of the members. Societ finds it Ivetter to buy these plant through florists them from dea trs at a distance.

This is about .he way a story must be written up nowadays to pass muster with th iverage city editor: An alleged man whose name was reported to be John Jones, and who, according to the di rectory, had his supposed home a 999 Brown street, and, as Hs neigh bors whisper, was a canvasser fo alleged books, is said to have been arrested this morning on the alleged charge of reported assault and ru- mored battery on his alleged wife. The woman, according to the police, told an story- of rumored ab- use at the hands of her supposed hus- band. .Ipnes, as his nanicTvns given. was discovered, the doorman says, hanging in his ceil by a'supposed rope, which, it is believed, he 'made of his alleged shirt, lie was, as the story goes, cut' down, but, the city physirian says, wa.s already dead. Dr. Robinson, claiming to county physician, was notified, and ordered the alleged remains taken in charge by Stiff Co.. wro gave their Occu- pation as undertakers.
