"he innumerable oftieers e.v.i'.d no; find a place unless they reverted to lower rank. That was the situation two or more years ago. -What has happened since then? Gradually the officers, at least a host of them, were sent back to Canada and also thousands of tho men unfit for service. In January. ';'1T. there wore 57 battalions Kngland. but by the fifteenth of t't same month this number had been reduced to reserve battalions. A .vat-later the reserve battalions numbered twenty and on dune first of this year a further reduction was made to I fifteen.

Instead of twelve regimental depots, as existed in January. l'.UT, there are now three group depots.

THE MENNONITE PROBLEM. Some Mennontte3 declare that they will not register as citizens of the United States. Then Mr. Pilling says they will: W7e shall soon see which to right. Now what can we do with them If they don't register? Hon. Mr. Cal-der's declaration at Uegina that they are subject to tho U.S. draft is al! right, but if they won't register, consequently the United StatftB can,'t get them, unless Canada goes out and arrests thorn and hands them over to Uncle Sam. Since these people are in Canada an they be treated like other American' citizens, who fall to register? Under tho convention with the United States wo can draft such delinquents into our forces, as the United States can do with Canadian citizens across the border, if the contention that is now made that the order-in-councll of 18(3, meann exemption of all Men-nonites coming Into Canada at that '. time and afterwards then these now �citizens can claim exemption under the law. These people may appear � very simple, tut we havo hoard that tbey were wise enoui','1 to ttBeertain their standing in Canada under,the Military Service Act neforo they left the United States, and they were assured, they were exempt from hcrvioe. Should this prove to be the care, tiien tt is a fine mesa. Parliament was led to believe wheii the military s-rvii-n act was before It for consideration, that tho Mennonites exempted were only those who came in to tho country in 1ST3, but it is now maintained that tho order-In council nf that year was a wide-open affair and any Men-nonlto can cl?,im exemption under .1. What Is the government going to do about it, If that is the case. What it should do at tlie least, is to pa.ia an order-in-councll limiting the exemption clauses to people who came to the country prior to the passage of tin Military Rorvlco Act if tuia cannot be done, we will have on our hands, thousands of people enjoying the protection of our laws, unwilling to fight, or contribute but prepared to make all Iho money possible out of the war. That is a rank Injustice. Surely the war has taught us that we need to be more careful in Hie selection of citizens, and yet we :1ml coming to us a band of people, who don't regard themselves as citizens at all. They create a little world of their own within another world and practically declare: we won't figlii, we won't pay, but we svill sell and get the topmost war prl�e*s. freedom and justice against German imperialism and i'rnssian militarism.

When you buy a leather sole you must take it as it comes-good or bad. When you buy Rinex you buy a sole that is built to give uniform wear and satisfaction. Rinex toughness gives a sole that is practically indestructible and adapted to milady's finest footwear, to the heaviest working shoes or the kiddies' little shoes-it matters not what style or for what use. Rinex is an "all year every purpose sole*' - as serviceable in winter as in summer and at all times as waterproof as rubber. Rinex is resilient and full of life. It makes "breaking-in" a new pair of shoes unnecessary. It is a better and more economical sole than you have ever known. When you buy your next pair of shoe* insist on Rinex. Get out the old shoes and have your cobbler re-sole them with Rinex. It is made and guaranteed by  Canadian Consolidated Rubber Co., Limited Head Office, Montreal.
