I Mr. Everybody, Everywhere: Do you know that there is a good use to which you can put the want columns of these papers? If you haven't thought of it yet it is time you began an investigation of your surroundings and disposed of the many things you do not need or buy the things you do need. Last week a man from the country came to us and said, I want to put in a want ad to buy a horse. Last winter my neighbor used the want columns and got a dandy horse at a mighty low price and this year I'm go ing to do the same stunt. We can sell your produce, your furniture, your busi ness, or we can get you a partner with or without capital if you will only tell him frankly what you want. Be honest, be fair with the man who reads your ad the same as if you were talking with him and you will have no difficulty in meeting every demand through these columns. The Want Ad is read by men at leisure time when they are ready to listen to your story. That's the reason they're such wonderful business builders. 75,000 Readers Every 24 Hours 80 chambermaid WANTED—Good cook at U. C- T. Hotel, Langdon. HELP WANTED—MALE.

At a time when European nations are busy marking out new colonial empires there is a certain measure of public interest in the report that France is about to resign the lust ves tiges of a colonial empire once the most promising of all European pos sessions beyond the sea. lier establish ments in India. In the eighteenth century the bat tle for India was not less closelv con tested between England and France nor with more varied fortunes than that in America. The due] between Montcalm and Wolfe in Quebec had its counterpart more or less striking, in the battle between Clive and Dup leix in Hindustan, save only that Dup leix was not, like Montcalm, a soldier. In the great remaking of maps which followed tlio final triumph over France by England in Asia and America alike France kept of her western empire two little Islands, of her Indian possessions live small, widely separated enclaves, Chander nagore on the Ganges, Yanaon at the month of the Godlvari, Mahe on the western coast, and Pondicherry and Saturday, Dec. 9 The Distinguished English Comedian MR.

They have no value as outposts of French expansion, for British supremacy in India is no long er debated by the French. The total commercial activity of all five terri tories is less than $10,000,000, and France is compelled to contribute to their budget. Inconsiderable as French India is, it has a real value to the British. As refuges for political exiles from Brit ish territory, as admirably placed cen ters for tho dissemination of seditious literature and the fomenting of dis order in adjacent British districts, the suppression of these tiny French col onies would be of a very great use fulness to England. As a result there has been a renewal of semi-official reports that Anglo-French negotia tions over French Indian colonies was Oil foot. The opportunity for a good bargain on both sides is unmistakable. In West India there are at least three British colonies which resemble the French establishments in India, in that they are merely enclaves in for eign territory. These are Gambia, Sierra l^eone, and the Gold Coast. Gambia is only a thin strip of coun try hardly ten miles wide on both' banks of the Gambia river. The Gold Coast is another colony which marks Karlkal, south of Madras, on the Bay of Bengal. All told, these French colonies have an area of 200 square miles and a the unsuccessful effort of the British to reach the interior of Africa from the coast and unite all the coast es tablishments. If France should ac quire these colonies, with Sierra Leone, the only interruption to an un broken French coast line from Tri poli to the Gulf of Guinea would be two Spanish conolies. one in Morocco and '.me on the Atlantic coast, the Portuguese enclave near Gambia and Liberia. That the British would trade all these African colonies against French India is not to be expected. But in other quarters, notably the New He brides, opportunities for a bargain exist. In any event a modification of boundaries, including the cession of Gambia, and a Testification of the frontier of the Gold Coast are far from unlikely. WOODMKY ELECT.
