Lieut-General Currie is one of the finest men Canada has produced. Native of the country, born on a farm of humble Scotch parentage, he has made his way in the world, solely dependent upon his own resources. He is a big -man from every viewpoint. Physically he is big in body, and very tall. He reminds one of the big Highlander that is often seen at the head of a Highland regiment. He is a man of strong and fearless character. Yet he is the most kindly and thoughtful of leaders. It is not idle to say that he is loved by hi3 men. They would go anywhere with Currie, because they know he would not send theni anywhere that he was afraid to go himself. . Sir Arthur Currie is not Canada's military leader in France by accident or favoritism. He holds.tire, rank because he is worthy of it. While his military career, prior to this war, had only been devoted to the .volunteer militia, he is rated as a soldier of the first tank.' Officers of other armies do not hesitate to class him as nn able leader' and tactician, Sir Douglas Haig has the utmost confidence in him. "However it is the Canadian soldier who appreciates him most. They know that the commander is always thinking of their welfare. Undoubtedly, the high reputation, held by the Canadians at the front, is due to the fine spirit that prevails between officers and men. They have faith in each other, and so when they SO out to undertake a big -job, they work together for its achievement. The, private soldier isn't as bad as some people have pictured him. On the whole he ia just the same chap, as far as personal conduct is concerned, 'that lie was back home. The seriousness of life and the nearness of doath, have certainly brought out the best in hundreds of men, who before the war took life rather complacently. I travelled over a great deal of the western front and I met soldiers in. London, Edinburgh, Paris, Rbuen, and in rest camps back of the line and I never saw a drunken soldier, or a soldier that was misbehaving himself. That is not to say that they are all saints, but if they were cutting up and doing evil things, they weren't about, where I could see them. The reputation of the soldier is good. He has his weaknesses, but when you size up the soldiers in the mass, they will compare mighty favorably with any five hundred thousand Canadians at home. There are many good| influences surrounding the soldier when on leave or when at rest back of the lines. In every large city in Britain and France, where the soldiers go on leave, there are clubs and hut^s, where they can sleep and eat and play games and read and rest. Kind and thoughtful women interest themselves in their entertainment and welfare. It is the same back of the lines. I would say that the soldier overseas is guarded and guided considerably more than when he was away from home influences in Canada1 prior to the war. necessities of life is warranted. As it is at present,, we simply have to accept* the increases, because there's nothing else to do. Probably the cost-of-living commissioner couldn't prevent the increases, but he might, by publicity, shame some profiteer into accepting a-imaller margin of profit. Price!fixing Is urged 'by many. In the United States Food Controller Hoover fixed maximum prices on some foodstuffs and the result was beneficial. Over here wo havnt attempted anything in that direction. It is true that there is a fixed price for wheat, but that doesn't seem to retain the price of flour at a fixed amount. Thereris something wrong isomewhere, but most of us are the dark in trying to locate the trouble. Maybe the cost-of-living commissioner could help us. He might at least try. . Increasing wages in one industry to meet the advancing cost of living ia onlyhelpful to the workers in lhai industry. Their'product goes' up in price and the consumer pay3 the piper, as usal. Other prices seemingly go up with the price, of coal, and then along comes another increase In wages and then an increase in the price of coal and then further increases in food stuffs. It is jUBt like working around in a circle, and we are not getting anywhere. War conditions, it la true, ar> responsible but surely these increases must end somewhere. There is a feeling that there Is a lot of profiteering but nobody seems to bo able to prove it. A real, ii-.d^peii^ent, honest investigation, going )>?ck to the 'source of production and following right along to the ultimate cost to the consumer, might satisfy us, even tf it ended in our having to. accept existing prices as reasonable. FILL OF GAS Allies Preparing Plans to make Huns Sick of This Mode of Warfare New York. Sept. 24-Prediction that Germany, who initiated the use of poison gas in warfare, "will have more than her fill of it in the next twelve months," was made in an address at the opening of the National Exposition of chemical industries here last night by Charles N.
