ISLANDERS BUY WAR BONDS
War Has Had Little Effect on Inhabitants of Miquelon, off Newfoundland Coast.
St. Pierre, Miquelon, Feb 12. – War conditions have caused but slight damage to the business interest of this little French colony, although lack of shipping and interruption of the sea trade has joined here as elsewhere with other war factors to raise the cost of necessities. It also has brought high prices for fish, the principal stock in the trade of the islands, and catches have been unusually good. One result of the prosperity has been that many of the fishermen were enabled to invest to a certain extent in war loans.
