Wants 10/- a Bushel PEOPLE SHOULD PAY 7d FOR BREAD. The Wheat Acquisition Board on Tuesday received the first complaint against operations. This is in the shape of a letter from a farmer m Hie Coohimon district. But the writer does not make it clear whether his communication was "wrote sarcastic" and was intended as a humorous reply to opponents of the board, or serious ly expresses his personal sentiments. The correspondent refers to the slm* ilarity of the names of the Attorney* General and a well-known bushrang er^ and suggests that the anology might easily be carried further by comparing the methods of the two people. The statement of his own case is that he sowed a large area from which he expected to reap 13 bushels an acre. He had sold the crop for 3/2 a bushel. The yield, however, proved to bo ox cecdingly lean. Subsequently the Government came along and cancelled all contracts, so that he was relieved of the necessity of selling to the mid* dleman at a ruinous figure. He wa...

Egypt is a much better training ground for them than England. They will get fit quicker In Egypt. Not that they are not heal thy enough, but a little bit of rough military training will not do them any harm. Of course your colonial ideas of discipline are not quite the same thing that we expect In Egypt and the free and easy methods of your men come as rather a. shock to us.

British Naval Tactics AMERICAN APPRECIATION. NEW YORK, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 8 January 1915
British Naval Tactics AMERICAN APPRECIATION. NEW YORK, Tuesday. I The "Xew York Times" in an arti j cie on British naval strategy, which is attributed to an American naval writ er ranking next in importance to the late Rear-Admiral Mahan, says that the British Fleet had accomplished what had been expected of it. Circumstances had produced a strat egy of the highest order, and England was still mistress of tho seas. The amateur strategists who demanded madly that the English fleet should "get to the Germans" over the mine fields, simply nslted the English to commit national suicide. A policy of watchful waiting must be pursued. Every man was doing his'fluty, which was as much the keynote of service to day as it was in Nelson's time.
