Women are slower, but more care ful, said an official of the Mechanic* iuud Metals bank, so, although twice, as many women as men are needed to do the same amount of work, the, bank loses no money on "extra salaries, because the women save hundreds of dollars which had to he paid to the clearing house for the men's mistakes.

The Meehait lea and Metals blink now has 60 women and they are being taken on by tens .or twenties each week. So far these 60 women are taking the places of only 36 men, which shows the difference In rapidity, but the ofll -ial of' the bank pointed out that it would be a serious problem when the men came home for their jobs.

Ht formerly lived ni IMPROVEMENTS I si ARE NOT TAXED Western Canada Does Not Tax Stock or Improvements but Collects an Additional Tax From Land Speculators. Owners of uncultivated lands in Western Canada are loud in their pro tests against an extra tax on their lands because they are not under cul tivation. Western Cannula, through its provincial governments, is endeavor ing-to force the speculative land owner to either sell his land to a settler or to cnltlvate It himself. At present sur tax of a few cents nn acre is levied aguinst all wild Inml. so that the own er of land held In its natural state, without improvements, is contributing more taxes to the government than the owner of a farm that is cultivated and even improved with buildings and stock to the value of thousands of dol lars. In order to encourage the farm er to Improve and to p» into stock rais ing, he is not charged one cent of taxes on any of his improvements, imple ments or stock of any kind. As a result of this surtax on un cultivated or speculatively held lands, the owners are now trying to sell them to actual settlers, and, in nearly every instance, have been otYering on very easy terms of payment, usually a quar ter down, and the balance extending over it term of years at prices much lower than their productive value would warrant. A world-wide shortage iu farm stuffs has given a new value to all agricul tural products and the margin of prolii today is greater than ever iu the past. It Is true labor and implements have Increased in price, but it is now pos sible to secure profit, iu farming, and higher. Possibly not on the $100 to $200 an acre farm lands but on land that can now, under existing condi tions, be purchased at from $1.'» to $30 per acre. Western Canadian farm lands are as productive as any in the world and can be as economically farmed. Wheat yields of from .'$0 to 50 bushels per acre have been common In Western Canada during the past few years, and the farmers have been too busy farming all they can so as to sell us much wheat as possible at $2.00 a bushel, that they have not had time to do any talking or writing. It is doubtful If there ever was such an opportunity to make big prolits hi farming. The value of each year's crop has been In hundreds of cases more than the market value of the land it was grown on. It is un reasonable to suppose such a con dition will last long, as the laud now being forced onto the market by sur tax on speculative owners will soon become absorbed by those who have learned of these highly protltahlel wheat lands. The news is spreading gradually throughout lite high priced land districts iu the United States, where there is a renewed awakening to the realization that tlie maximum profit in farming is not being obtained when it is possible to secure from forty to seventy per cent return on the Investment iu Western Canada. Many who have been planning to visit West ern Canada for the purpose of person ally Investigating conditions are leav ing this month, when the good weallier can be enjoyed. As threshing opera tions and marketing of grain is under way, no better time could be selected to secure first hand and reliable infor mation from the farmers themselves. The winter mouths afford ample time for completing moving arrangements, tp allow the settler to take up resi dence in early spring, so as to get Something done next year and to make a start on the big and profitable fann ing operations in Western Canada.— Advertisement.

Klotz, decided to Impose a tax of two francs, or 40 cents American money, on each cigar lighter used In that country. The rea son for this is that the sale of matches In France is in the hands of the gov ernment monopoly and the portable lighters interfered with the sale of the mutchcs. On the other hand the matches have become so bad in quality that they are subject of complaint and ridicule. The law has hccomc unpopu lar and there is an cll'ort now being made to have the order rescinded. Not withstanding tile fact that an in creased tax was placed on tobacco by ili« French government several years ago, It has caused a tendency to in crease smoking and that, is proven by the many smokers to be seen in public places and thoroughfares. 111.
