been organized. In lesser establish.

and w here there arc small stores with
only a few clerks, two or three em

Apparently all of the clerks are en

are being put through their paces, the
streets ring with good natured shouts
I his military organization of
clerks is not a haphazard movement.
It is being supervised by the Govern
ment and the men thus enlisted will
form a fifth line of defense. The com
panies thus formed are in addition to
the thousands being recruited for the
regular army and the military organi
zations in the various cities.
From the appearance of the recruit
ing stations, it would appear that nil
male England is trying to get to the
fighting front. Men of all classes and
degrees besiege the offices, standing
half the day in long lines in the
streets, silk-hatted peers rubbing el

It is an undoubted benefit to the
British consumer that war was de
layed as long as possible. It did not
come until the first sheaes of the
home crop were already in stack while
so much wheat land wns ripe for the
harvester that a scarcity of tood could
be at least but a matter of days. Had
war broken out in June, the matter of
harvesting the grain would have been
a far more serious problem.
The duys when llritish ports held a
month's supply of wheat anil ample
reserve of feeding stuff for t.tock ap
penr to be past and trade profits in
time of peace are now so small that
there is now no longer a margin for

That flour and wheat have risen
even slightly in price since the var
scare became apparent, shows what
might have been expected had war
came when the harvest was but two
months off instead of two weeks.
The first, but least important issue
of the war, is that of the British mar
kets being cut off from certain arti
cles much in demand, but not abso
lutely necessary. Austrian rolli have
already disappeared from tlv dinner
table and the fine Hungarian 'lour,
so much in demand for pastry has
gone up 100 per cent. It is doubtful
if Austria-Hungary will continue to
export flour, for the wheat crop of
the Dual Monarchy, even had there
been no war, is very short this year.
The eastern part of the Ervpire: that
nearest to the seat of war, will barely

confectionery will disnppeur for the

other British cities are now making
excellent pastry flour by Hungarian
processes, no longer the jealously
guarded secret of the mills of Buda
pest. Servian experts of silk cocoons,
plums, prunes, cherries and liquors al
ready have been stopped by the war,
but such things are regarded as lux
uries and the llritish consumers are
doing without them without complaint.
Through England, the people of ev
ery class regard the war with one
mind. They approve of it because they
believe there was no honorable way
for ! '.rrl.'in l to stay out of the con
flirt. Not i' ii;:ir hut wants to en to
the front and all the people. Inch or
low, are accepting the privations of
war, slight as yet, but apt to become
heavy before long, with great good
humor and grace.
Perhaps one of the most uni xpeeted
results of the war was the absolute
ending of suffragette militancy. For
years the Hntish public had been ac
customed to the dcpicdations of the
"wild women" manifested in smashing
of windows, crusades on Parliament,
burning of houses, mutilation of pic
turs and explosions of bombs. One of
the first things King George did after
England declared war, was to uncon
ditionally pardon all the suffragette
prisoners who are in the various jails
for militant offenses. The militants re
ciprocated immediately by declaring a
cessation of their violent campaign
for the ballot. The suffragette organ
izations volunteered to take charge of
the work of providing for the needy
women and children, made dependent
by the war and some of them volun
teered to act as nurses at the front.
