She said nothing, only stood with
lier head bent, looking downwards.
He went inlo lhe salle-a-nianger;
then came back to her again.
"You did quite right to take thai
holtle from me," he said. "There's
no excuse for me, for the bottle never bad much attraction for me. liul
I've been infernally battled and beaten of late."
Suddenly he look bold of Ihe half-
open door and leant his forehead
against it with an air of weariness
and defeat.
"Here am I, Kitty," lie said; she
trembled as he used the name, bu*
apparently he had used it unconsciously, "here am 1, only wauling to

Bartlett's eyes was wonderful.
"Mere I am with mv neck in thc

and staring at her, "while every day

The Flight
The days passed, tense with expectation, but nothing happened. Coop-
"i- went out now but seldom, and
tlien only when dusk had fallen. He
rarely appeared before midday, and
ll'tcr a meal he would go back lo
his own room, where lie would lie
on his bed hall asleep till dusk came
to set htm free lo wander a while.
The evidences of his drinking were
iu thc pallor of his fare, llie nervous
jcrkincss of bis speech, his morose-
ness and irritability, his bloodshot
eyes and trembling hand.
��T\vo women watched him in these
days with a growing terror. Kale
Bartlctt would leok up and bc aware
lhat Margot's eyes w-ere also on
Cooper. Each was estimating the
point at which he would become
Dolly was kept out of il. He made
no attempt to see her. There were
times when it would almost seem
tbat hc must have forgotten her. She
kept to her room when he was aboul
the house, docile as a child in Kale
Bartlett's hands; and when she asked
in tears when they were going to
be set free, she was confronted by
Kate's assurance that freedom would
come today or else tomorrow.
Once Dolly appeared with a
strange talc. She. had fled to thc
granary from the courtyard at the
sound of Cooper's voice in the house
coming her way. While she was
there she had heard voices, English voices, close by, passing beneath
her. More, she had thought she recognized one of the voices for that of
the Squire's young cousin, Hilary
Strangways. So sure had she becn
that She had called out.   Of course
the people who passed hail nol heard
her; Ihey had gone loo far; and if
ihey had looked back lhcy could not
have discovered her peep-hole.
Kale Bartlett shook her head over
ihe recital. To her all English
voices were alike, ll was most improbable that Master Hilary would
be in Audigiiac. The poor child's
mind was full of the Squire, so, of
course she would imagine things.
Dully slept uneasily that night. At
the slightest sound Kale j'.arlliil
would awake and lift herself on her
elbow |o listen. Dolly cried and
struggled and shrieked on her lover
to save her from some deadly peril.
The woman who was listening to her
was cold with fear in the darkness,
oppressed by a nameless sense Of
guilt towards lhe innocent child in
her charge, and her benefactor, the
Squire, who had trusted her, afler
saving her life.
The nral day Cooper kepi to his
room all day. When Kate Bartlctt
brought in a tray with food he
seemed to be asleep. There was a
full bottle of brandy on the table beside liim. She looked at il; advanced her hand towaafis it as though
she would take il away; then shook
her head, and, leaving lhe tray ou
the table, went out.
That same day Dolly made another discovery. Seeing something
glittering on the floor���she could
not have imagined how she had overlooked it before���in lhc alcove
where the bed was, she picked the
thing up. It was a wedding ring, on
which someone had trodden, crushing it almost out of shape.
She was looking at il when Kate
came into Ihc room, and, coming to
see what the girl was looking at so
intently, slared as though it were
the Gorgon's Head. To Dolly's
amazement she snatched it from her
and flung it through the open win
dow; then put her arms about thc
girl and begged her darling Miss
Dolly to forgive her; slu did not
know- why she had done il; only lhat
i( seemed a strange, uncanny thing
lo lind, and she could not bear lo
see. it in her darling's hands.
Later in the afternoon, while Dolly
was out of doors, she went quickly
upstairs, and, having locked the door
of the damask room behind her, she
took a bunch of uisly keys and tried
them one alter another on the. clos.l
door of the dressing room which had
been locked when Ihey came and
had remained locked. She tried
many keys before one seemed to fit.
Afler a struggle it turned in the
lock, aud the door came open.

Going Back on the Kaiser
German   People   Gradually    Losing
Faith in the War Lord
In the September number of the
Nineteenth Century there is an Interesting articlo by Prof. F. Scfton
Dclmcr. He, Australian, bom, had
lived for luciily years pasl in Germany, during the latter part of llic
lime being a professor in lhc University of Berlin. From the outbreak of the war uniil May of this
year, he was a civil prisoner in Berlin. Hc was able, however, lo go
about under restrictions, and to sec
something of his university friends.
Whal he writes of their change of
opinion is instructive,    He declares:
"Before the war lhe intellectual
classes of Germany wcrc almost to a
man on lhc side of the Kaiser. But
many of these people, who in August, 1911, lauded their ruler to the
skies as a new Charlemagne, now
shrug their shoulders at him and his
house. They put the disaster which
has come over them in consequence
of this war, and the still worse disasters with which tlicy see themselves threatened in the near future,
down to the Kaiser's clumsy diplomatic preparation of the war, and
his autocratic system. His everlasting pose, his wish to delude himself and them into the belief that he
is a second Frederick the* Great, his
fickleness and impulsiveness as a pilot of German policy, have all come
home to them. 'He dismissed Bismarck," I havc heard people say,
'but just look at llic slatcmen he has
chosen as his chancellors since���first
Cap.ivi, a mere soldier; then Holicn-
lohe, the courtier; then the selfish
fox von Bulow, and afler him the pliable and weak-kneed philosopher
Bcthmami, but never a really strong
man or a greal statesman among
them all.'"
Herr Ballin's Fate
Fallen at last out of favor with
the kaiser, Germany's greatest shipping director, Albert Ballin of thc
Hamb'urg-Amcrican Line, can now
survey in all its fulness the tragedy
which bis master's war has made of
Iiis great life-work.
It was to him "an idiotic war," and
lie said so. He was before the war
"winning more trenches every day"
(or Germany than the k liscr's armies arc winning in months, and he
said so. His magnificent merchant
fleet is now in the use of Germany's
enemies or going to pieces in idle
and hungry German porls.
Thc fruits of his genius and long
years of labor have been practically
wiped out before his eyes, and that
anguish of spirit which musl be his
can win from the autocrat he served only too well no better consolation than a kick,���New York World.

The Broad-faced One
A servant was once despatched to
purchase a chicken and passing a
naturalist's on her way she went in
and enquired thc price of the broad-
faced chicken in the window.
"Oh," said the proprietor, smiling,
"that's not a chicken, that's an owl."
"Well," said the maid, "it'll do all

Evening Post,
U. S. Destroyers' Work
Good Work of the U.S. Destroyers
in the Forbidden Zone
I'or military reasons the facts cannot be detailed, but it may be said
that thc United States destroyers are
very active in the protection of vessels in Germany's "forbidden zone,"
and that the strain on officers and
men is heavy. They are exposed to
danger from the enemy and from
rough weather. "Pour days on and
four days off" for officers and men
on the destroyers and patrols hunting U-boats on the other side means
that thc navy is doing its full share
of hard work; for "four days on"
spells for them no rest, little sleep,
hard work and hardship. The crews
come into port utterly exhausted, but
after four days ashore go back,
prepared for another turn with thc
submarines. When llic number of
ships and their crews and what they
have accomplished is told, the work
of thc navy will show that its worth
has not been less than its prestige
called for.���Army and Navy Journal.

Sore corns, hard corns, soft corns
or any kind of a corn can shortly be
lifted right out with the fingers if
you will apply on the corn, a few
drops of freezone, says a Cincinnati
At little cost one can get a small
bottle of freezone at any drug store,
which will positively rid one's feet of
every corn or callus without pain or
soreness or the danger of infection.
This new drug is an ether compound and dries the moment it is applied and docs not inflame or even
iiritate the surrounding tissue. Just
think! You can life off your corns
and calluses now without a bit of
pain or sorenes. If your druggist
hasn't freezone he can easily get a
small bottle for you from his wholesale drug house, ���

she said severely. The butler looked
up with a guilty flash. "James,1'.she
asked, "how is it that whenever 1

work only half done and you lying
down reading the newspaper?"
"Well, madam," the butler answerer, "I should say it was en account

Von Tirpitz's Sympathy
The fine Americans who arc telling
us all thc time that this is a capitalistic war on our part have support
and sympathy now from their grand
old friend, Admiral von Tirpitz, who
started the submarine massacre. In
a speech to thc reactionaries in Berlin he casually remarked that if thc
Kaiser and God were to bc defeated
in this conflict it would bc by "Anglo-American capital."���New York
No More Asthma. Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy sounds thc
death knell of this trying trouble. It
stops the awful choking and painful
breathing. It guards against night
attacks and gives renewed ability to
sleep and rest the whole night long.
Much is claimed for this remedy, but
nothing but what cau bc demonstrated by a trial. If you suffer from
asthma try it and convince yourself
of its great value.
Will Be Huns Forever
W'e can bc sure that the kaiser will
carry his bluff lo lhc last ditch, lie
will hold out while there is a shadow
of hope that the allies will weary of
the war. For liim anything less than
a victorious peace would bc disaster
of lhe most terrible kind. A German
pod pictures the position of Germany in the event of defeat. "Lct
them call us Huns,' 'he says, "if wc
can but gain the victory., Hut let us
die fust if wc are to bc called Huns
and to be defeated as well."
The allies will come out of- the
war with clean hands, with head held
high, with conscious honor and with
a cause in lhc support of which all
the world outside of the central powers is as a common brotherhood.���

When asked recently by a representative of the Zuricher Zcitung if

"When will the British come out?"

In llis latest Vancouver speech
Billy Mclnnes charges that a Comox Clergyman could not get an
appointment as Chaplain ��f lhe 102
Batt. without first seeing Mr. Dan
Kilpatrick, chairman of the Conservative Association. A greater
falsehood was never uttered hy the
pettiest political heeler- It is quite
true that the Rev T. Menzies, and
all honor to him, did make appli
cation to be appointed Chaplain of
the regiment, but his application
���was not made until after the ap
poiiitment had been made by the
Colonel in charge. He also asked
the good offices of IT. -S. Clements,
who did all lie could for him, even
recommending him at Ottawa.
Waste no time on Mclnnes, By
accepting the Vancouver (and Van
couver Liberals were exceedingly
hard tip for a candidate) he has
clearly indicated that he expects
no suyport in Comox-Alberni, So
long as he is elected the division is
immaterial to him, and while his
friends are sweating themselves on
his behalf, Billy is relying upon
Vancouver to elect him, At the
same time, this division is useful
as a second string. If Comox-Alberni, could not produce even a
better Laurier Liberal than ''Yukon" Mclnnes then we are sorry
for that faction for while he is very

The marks of rank on the clothing
of American military officers arc not
the sains as those used in the Hriiish army. An officer with General
Pershing's force lias explained tlicir
origin. The oak leaf, hc says, is worn
hy a captain, and llic poplar leaf by
a major, because the poplar grows
taller than llic oak. The eagle signified a colonel, because the eagle
sours over tin- poplar. The stars
are for generals, because llic eagle
looks towards the stars which shine
ovcr all.

Ate Onions Like Apples
Lady Shacklelon gives llic interesting information that the members
of her husband's expedition found
the greatest benefit from eating raw-
onions like apples. The ironical
title of "violets" conferred on ihem
for an obvious reason, explains why
onions arc banned, but their nutritive and tonic value, particularly in
cold conditions, is beyond question.
In the Peninsulai laborers in the

scientifically is, wc believe, on the

Will Suffer from an Economic   and

Whether victorious or defeated,

for years lo come from this economic

Colonel Roosevelt Believes That the  Only Peace Which
Make the World Safe for Democracy Must Be Based On the
Complete Overthrow of Germany, Austria and Turkc>
Lord Northcliflc Says Many People are Deluded by Pro-German
Propagandists Into Supposing That This is a Commercial War,
Bul Points Out tbe Utter Fallacy of Such Reasoning
Thai lln
fighling to
American people arc not
make lhe world sale for
but to make il safe foils the opinion expressed
by Lord Northcliffe, head of tb
Brilish mission in the United Slates,
in an article printed in tho October
issue, of Current Opinion Magazine.
The article, which is headed, "What
America Is Fighting For," says:
"If this counlry had meant lo take
up arms in defense of Brilish or
French interests, or in the interest
of Belgium, or in order to spread
democracy, it would not havc waited
until April, llll". If its aims had
been commercial, il would have becn
in the war long ago. Thc motive
wliicli brought the United States in
was not sympathy for any other nation, was not desire for gain, was
not an abstract fondness for democratic as opposed to autocratic gov.
eminent; it was self-interest, self
preservation, and sclf-rcspcct."
Lord Northcliffe says that the only
way for America lo make the world
safe for herself is to make Prussia
admit that her theory of a state
which lias no conscience, a state
which can do no wrong, is out of
"The German people," lie adds,
"have been purposely included into
lln: belief that lhcy arc defending
themselves against foes who arc set
upon crushing them out of existence,
a design which nobody but a lunatic
would conceive or imagine possible
of execution. Austria fancies that
she went to war to defend herself
against Russia, the truth being that
she was used as a cat's-paw by the
liohcuzollcra gang. Bulgaria is still
under thc delusion that she will gain
the reward promised her by .Prussian Junkcrdoiu for her treachery tc
her fellow Slavs.
"Even among lhe allies there exist
misconceptions as to the causes and
aims of the struggle. A number of
English people still fancy that Britain could havf kept out of the conflict if Belgium had not been invaded. These people are slill unable
to understand thai Prussia's object
in forcing war upon France and Russia was in order to clear them out
of the way and be able to attack
England, and, in course of time, the
United Stales, with a good prospect
���of success later ou.

lhc crazy notion lhat .lie new republic lias no interests of its own to
defend against Germany, and only
remains in thc war for the bent-lit of
France and Britain. 1 have even
heard French people speak as if
their country took up arms for the
purpose of regaining Alsace and
Lorraine, whereas we know that
France would never have brought
upon the world the frightful calamity of war for selfish aims.
"Here in the United States, T am
told, and I have discovered proof for
myself, that there arc people deluded by German and pro-German propagandists into supposing that 'this
is a commercial war.' It is not very
easy to make out exactly what ihese
people mean by that expression. So
far as 1 can learn, they suppose that
the cause of the wnr was commercial
rivalry, and that the combatants arc
each seeking to obtain control of
the world's markets."
Denying that the allies arc al war
for commercial reasons, Lord Northcliffe asks: "What would have been
thc good of Britain going to war with
Germany in order to secure markets?
As soon as she had secured them,
tlicy would have been open to German as freely as to British trade.
The German vice-chancellor, Dr.
HeliTrich, has asserted that Great
Britain's object was "the economic
oppression of Germany." How could
Britain oppress any nation economically as long as she allowed the
traders of all nations to compote
with her own traders upon equal
"The peoples of the British empire
did not want war. They had nothing
to gain from war. Tlicy wcrc threatened. Tlicy were attacked. Whether
Prussia had invaded Belgium or not,
Britain would have been obliged to
fight in self-defense. It was not
Brussels that the Germans wanted
when "for strategic reasons" lhcy
marched their troops across the Belgian frontier which they had signed
a solemn contract to respect. Tlicy
wanted Antwerp, which Napoleon
called, with clear-sighted understanding, "a pistol pointed at the
heart of Kngland." They wanted an
outlet for their ocean-going submarines.    Tlicy wanted Calais.
"The delusion industriously sown
in the United Slates by Germans and
those who are in favor of Prussian-
ism, including, 1 am sorry io say,
many Irishmen, that Britain always
fights for commercial advantages has
long been a Prussian slander. Treit
schke, the writer on whose teaching
Kaiser Wilhelm II. was nurtured,
taught lhal England's wars were always undertaken with a view to thc
conquest of markets, lie did not
explain why Kngland should lake so
much irouble lo conquer markets,
seeing _ that she gave Ihc whole
world, including Germany, ihc benefit of access to them."
A Thieves'Paradise
Our Starving Allies
Position of Invaded Serbia Becomes
More and More Serious
The following appeal for help and
justice for the starving Serbian people appears iu "La Serblc," a weekly
paper published by Serbs in exile,
ajftl edited by Dr. I.a.ar Mirkovic, a
professor of Belgrade university.
The position of invaded Serbia becomes more and more serious.
The population awaits help, which
at present reaches it in an absolutely insufficient measure.
The reasons invoked by the allied
governments against the .sending of
foodstuffs lo Serbia do not preclude
and ought not to preclude lhc sending of help which, while relieving
the famished Serbian population,
would in no way weaken the effects
of the blockade.
The Swiss committee for Serbian
relief provides a sufficient guarantee
that the foodstuffs and other indispensable articles will be distributed
among lhe Serbian population and
that this distribution will iu no wav
replace rations accorded by the invaders. As regards flour, in the First
place there arc in Serbia a great
number of people who rannol gel
bread lo eat oftener than once a
week. Then there arc things that
are totally lacking, for example, mill.,
which if sent to Serbia could save,
the children who still remain alive
from certain dealh. Clothing and
slioes arc uo longer to be had in
Serbia, or arc so costly lhat lhe population is not in a position to obtain
To supply all this to the Serbs
would in no way diminish lhe effects
of the blockade, because the persons
who would benefit would not cede
their rations to the invader, for lhis
simple reason that they arc receiving
nothing from the invader.
One sees, therefore, thai military
necessities and the exigencies of the
most elementary humanity can be
reconciled, and with a little more
good-will one could arrive at satisfactory results.
It Is the duty of the Serbian representatives lo explain to our Brilish and American allies that there is
no question of any action in favor
of the enemy but of the saving of
the Serbian population, which is
menaced by death from starvation.
Wc make appeal lo the generosity
so largely and so often displayed of
lhc British, the French, and the
Americans, lo rescue our unhappy
compatriots from an appalling situation. One may say the same, thing
of the Serbs inlcrned and prisoners.:

an aviator of sonic experience, "Is a

self. Those who know it best acknowledge it least. Aud the pilots
themselves���do they speak of a
"lucky" or an "unlucky" pilot"
Never. They speak only of a "good"
pilot or a "bad" one. The only time
a man is told he is lucky is when hr
has failed to break his neck despite
bad piloting. Flying is a cruel mistress. Only a pilot knows what she
docs to a pilot's heart. Where are
the young pilots? Al the aerodromes

Notes by the Way
From reliable] sources information has been leaking through lhat
communication with Headquarters
the City of Sunlight in Ihe shade
of the hills, has been almost entirely cut off from the Comox Valley
during lhe past two weeks owing
to the incursions of Stevens jugger
itaut on the highway leading to
that busy centre. We are glad to
make it known, however, that the
gauntlet was safely run by a veil-
tursone spirit who negotiated thru'
floes of mud and slush in a stone-
boat drawn bv a team borrowed
from one of the ranchers iu the locality.
The hero of the hour is in town
recovering from his experiences,
when he purposes returning by the
Fame route as soon as his laud
craft has b.eu provisioned.

damage anticipated on meeting the
owner of the team,
He states ha has not been in
Flanders but wished he iwas there
when negotiating the six foot wide
craters which Hue both sides and
middle of the stretch from Headquarters to the bend near the railway crossing, as he is of opinion
that bad as the mud is in Flanders
it is worse here from the very fact
that our gallant troops do become
inured to it eventually: which is
impossible with the conditions obtaining due east of Headquarters.
and at the same lime maintain the
cheerful sang-froid attributed to
those Somewhere in France;
While the space available in his
wheeless chariot, (the only known
method by which it is advisable to
make the journey/ is limited, and
on account of its contortions while
writhing and twisting through mud
over boulders, down one side of a
crater and up tlie   il.ic.   ...   lapid
succession like a "tauk" at the
front,��� he was able to bring iu a
few of the curiosities churned up
from the bowels of the earth.by the
juggernaut. Interesting as thesejare
to geologists and others however,
the most valuable iu the opinion of
our hero is the recolleetiou of a
continuous stream of sulphuric language like the convulsions of an
active volcano which were occasion
ally audible from the inside of a
notable Overland car whose, driver
was making strenuous efforts to
reach Headquarters in time for sup
per with one mile to go and four
hours to it iu. on low gear and the
aid of John Smith's team which
had mercifully come to his assistance.
Whether he reached his destination or was entirely engulfed in
the mire is not yet known.
We are advised however that a

are offered for sale or exchange for

iii his is.,ue of the 22nd publishes a
letter from "Returned Soldier"   in
which he assails tne fot thejremarks
contained in the letter published in
your columns of the 15th itist.
He alleges I   made   no   definite
charge or even disproved   the correctness of anv of   the   statements
referred .0 therein.
Iu replv I can only sav that those
statements were so  overwhelmingly at fault that to disprove them is
unnecessary,   besides which "Re
turned Soldier" would have  much
further cause for complaint at  the
space it would be necessary to allot
for such a purpose.
Had our orator told us the moon
was made of green cheese he would
apparently have swallowed it whole

ed it was not so.
