morning. Armed workmen were moving
from Halle and vicinity in the direction
of these two towns. Their declared pur

fighting had been driven out of Elsleben
by the security police. According to in

Extremely conflicting views art- ex
pressed by Americans; both here and in
Stockholm, who have long been watching
the Russian situation at cIosq range re
garding the possibility of any extensive
trade at present with Soviet Russia.
Among some of these observers the
view is expressed that there are huge
potentialities in Russian trade. Others
take quite the contrary view.
It is pointed out by many Americans
of the latter class, including"*represcnt
ativos of large banks and general im
porting and agricultural machinery con
cerns, that the talc of gold by Russia to
the Swedish banks lias rolled up a com
paratively large credit balance for im
mediate purchases of food, agricultural
machinery and transportation equipment.
When thiR balance is exhausted, how
ever, these Americans declare they can
st-e only llax and lumber, with possibly
some leather and platinum, as commo
dities which will be available for export
from Russia for several years to come.
One general importer, who is particu
larly interested in flax, said the United
States would have very little chance to
obtain any of the present supply, which

Correspondence of the Associated Press.
.Stockhoi.m, March 26.?Tho details

tion and the circumstances forming a
'background against which this episode
can be seen and judged have been
learned by tho correspondent from well
informed sources "by way of Riga. Lat
via, and Helsingfors, Finland.
Trotsky's first attajck on Kronstadt
was a failure, but he adopted other
methods. By means of sham attacks he
allowed part of his troops to run over to
the enemy and when night time fame
launched his main attack, during which
the defenders were attacked from behind
by the sham deserters.
Gen. Denikine, Admiral KoTchak, Gen.
Yurenltch and Gen. Wrangel, the anti
Bolshevist leaders, had to be fought
on land and it was necessary to estab
lish a Bolshevist army, but not a navy.
Vet Trotzky never forgot he had once
been in the Russian navy and he only
awaited the proper opportunity to make
tho Russian navy as strong and supple
a weapon in his hanfis as foe had made
tho army.
Finally, Trotzky employed a weapon
ready to his hands?he cut the food sup
plies. The sailors thereupon had re
course to requisitioning foodstuffs out
side Petrograd, which caused distur
bances which were given the color of a
counter revolution.
This moment was seized upon by anti
Bolshevist elements and serious upris
ings were arranged in I'etrograd. Simul
taneously rations were reduced to the
minimum in Petrograd and elsewhere.

Vancouver, B. C., March 26.?Signing
of the trade agreement between Great
Britain and Russia lias led to talk here
among shipping ami commercial inter
ests of a revival of Canadian trade with
Siberia. Soveral syndicates already j
have been formed to take advantage of
the first chance for a resumption of
the trade relations built up with Siberia
during the first years of the war?re
lations that were interrupted by the
Russian revolution.
In the opinion of Charles S. Meek, an
Importer, however, Canadians will en
counter a serious obstacle In Japanese
influence in Siberia. In a statement to
day he gave warning that Japan nat
urally will reserve to her own trades
men all the commercial advantages af
forded by geographical location and
military occupation of certain areas.
One transaction leported to be under
consideration by Canadians is redemp
tion orders placed by the former Rus

of dollars' worth of railway equipment,
now lying at Coquitiam, B. C., where it
was dumped at the time of the revolu
tion. This equipment is useless to Cana

Mother's Love?and
Her Kitchen Slavery
After dinner, Mrs. Jack led the children out into the parlor, wttare
she began to sing. Mr. Jack took up the even ng paper.
"Do you know," interrupted Mr. Jack, "that I am nding you all
over again as sweetheart and companion since you quit trying to bake
your own bread.
"Before, you used to have too many dates in the kitchen after
evening 4inner and it wore you out so that I always seemed to find
you a bit tired."
"Well," confessed Mrs. Jack, "three nights a week for baking was
quite a burden; but you always loved the bread your mother used to
bake and you used to say mine reminded you of that. 1 didn't dare
try the baker's bread, knowing how you felt."
"That's all right, dear," the husband confided, "but when I see the
way the kiddies take to WARD'S, 1 am glad their mother does no:
have to slave over the bread pan as mine did.
"Mother seemed to know bread-making by intuition. And WARD
seems to have caught the inspirational moment of that intuition
when mother was at her best. They get ever/ loaf the same and every
loaf the best that bread can be.
"It's a new deal in the world since our wive* and sweethearts gained
the confidence to say, 'a loaf of WARD'S please' and let their bread
worries go at that. I'm glad of it. too."
WARD, in coaxing 'mother out of the kitchen, used all the skill
that three generations of baking, plus the best science the universities
had developed, could give us.
