Little River
The first game of hockey ever
played in Comox took piace at
Little River on Sunday between a
team from Cumberland and the
boys of this place. The score 5 to
1 iu favor of Cumberland was no
indication ot the play. This was
the Sfirst time most of the Little
Riverites had ever seen a hockey
game or handled a stick. For the
first 20 minutes of plav neither side
scored. The boys appreciate the
fact that the Cumberland team
came so far to give them a game.
Everything went off smoothly,
there was co rough work and no
quarrelling. The Little River team
was as follows: goal, Cliff McMillan; point, J, Knight; cover point,

"I was i liitiuiUK-" Bald Mrs. Dunbar,
"iiini ii Mm would llko tu come home
wiih me, I i'iiiiIiI give you an old Bltirt
�� hiiii I have ceased to wear, it ls
very handsome II Is dark blue silk. 11

Kato's eyes sparkled. \ skirl at
dark blue silk! Itlua Bilk! Kate Jes-
hii]i iii iiini' siiu: ilir voice [airly ml-
ii'ivii. Hor dlsllko ror Mrs. Dunbar
vanished on the spot,   She snid-
"I nm suve, ma'am, I'm greatly
obleegod. But I don'l Know why ynu
should in' a-glving ni your clothes to
anyone llko mo."
"Well, come to iny house, ml I'll
tell you. why "
Kate made ao reply to this except
Immediately to turn In the (Unction
ot Mrs. Dunbar's house. Even In a
place like Chesney street there, are
liuuses, and houses. There were seine
better furnished, bettor set out than
others; and the one in whlcb Mrs.
Dunbar lived wns quite the best house
in the whole disreputable slreet. siie
took a latch-key out ot her pocket,
opened the door, anil motioned to the
girl to follow her, Kate, in somo wonder, walked upstairs. They entered
a room on the first lloor; It was comfortably, even handsomely furnished.
Beyond it was a bedroom, of which
Kate just caugllt a glimpse. Mrs.
Dunbar lold Ibe girt to seat herself.
She rang the bell, and a. servant appeared.
"Send up my supper," she said.
Tho servant abut tbe door, after
muttering something, and Mrs. Dunbar retired into her bedroom. When
���she came out, minus her coat and
loque, having brushed back her dyed
hair, sbe looked altogether more re-
spectacle than she had done while out
ot doors. The sitting room door was
opened, and the servant���who nodded
to Kate, being an acquaintance of
hers���put a tray on tbe table. It contained cheese and bread and butter,
and a large jug of stout.
"lt Is a very simple meal, you see,"
said .Mrs. Dunbar, "but if you care to
iiliare it with me, I'm sure you are
heartily welcome. Bring up another
plate and knife and glass, Susan."
Susan very sulkily obeyed, She
didn't wani to watt mi anyone like
Kate Jessop���it wus Imd enough to
wait on Mrs. Dunbar- Inn Mrs. Dunbar made il worth her while, as sbe
did with every one wiih whom she
came in contact,
While tbe two were eating, neither
spoke much. Kate was wondering
why this woman, who lived in what
she styled "most 'iinilsoine" rooms,
should want to speak to her���why she
should offer her u blue silk dress. But
she waited in silence for the denouement. Presently the supper came lo
an end. Mrs. Dunbar herself put tbe
tray outside tbe door, and then she
turned  to Kate.
"1 will show you the dress," she
said, "before we go any further."
This was what Kate, of all tilings,
longed to see. She I bought of her
young innn, and how she would absolutely take bim hy storm on the following Sunday. Mrs. Dunbar appeared, trailing the rich silk after her;
sbe tossed it on (he table.
"This is yours," she said, "if you
answer a few. questions, and if you
do what I want."
"Well ma'am, I'll do what I can,
bin 1 don't know what you want. J
didn't know that 1 wus, as it were, to
buy the silk."
"I may as '.ill tell you, my good
girl, Unit Mrs. Florence Dunbar does
nothing for nothing. Now, then, what
[ wuni io ask you is this. 1 happened
to hear, by accident, I can't: exactly
tell you how���but 1 did bear, thnt you
spent a year of your life nl the Rectory nt  Worthington-on-lho-lllll."
"Oh! That 'appy year!" said Kate.
"Indeed, ma'am, I did. I'm not ashamed to own il.' I was 'appy���'appy���
ma'am!"
"No doubl you knew the young
Indy?"
"Knew .Miss Barbara! In course i
know her! Ain't she tlio very darlin'
nf my 'curt, though she is so taken up
with those people she's done to ill
Vauxhall Bridge Road, nnd won't have
nothing to sny to me. But when she
came to town lirst, it was all Kate-
Kate Jessop���and what Kate could do
ror her; nnd if you'll believe me.
ma'am, I'd tnken u room, and we was
to live and sleep there together, aud
Barbara, or .Miss Barbara, as I should
call her. wns to go with me to .orris's
shop in the daytime."
"Oh! . orris's shop?"
"Ves."
"Well, it doesn't much matter. She
didn't go to .orris's shop, did she?"
"No, ma'am, she was pervented by
Mrs. Russell���a very cross, disagreeable woman to me, although she's took
a wonderful fancy to little Barbara."
"Well, all 1 can lell you is this,
Kate. If you can find Barbara���or
Miss chance���and will manage lhat
she and I meet, I will give you this
dress, and a whole sovereign for
yourself. It doesn't matter where or
how f :_e her. I want to speak to
her���1 have a reason entirely for her
good. 1 enn't tell you any more. 1
would not hurt cue hair of ber head,
but see her, and speak to her, I must.
If you will manage this for rue, Kate.
I will give you whal I said: the blue
silk dress and n whole sovereign."
W. N. U. 1027
I    "Oli, ma'am.   .Nothing could be easier���ot course, I enn Hud her."
"Well, see about it, you know my
address. Vou have bul to como und
tell me where J can see her. I could
meet her in tlie upper part of Vuux-
luill Bridge Uoad as well as anywhere
else. Mrs. liussell is not likely lo
come in that direction. I ouly wani
lo speak io her for a few minutes, and
your re unl Is wailing. Think what
yon can buy with your sovereign!
You can buy gloves and boots and a
nice little hat. to wear with lho blue
silk dress. You have gut a very neat
llgure, my girl, ami when dressed up
stylishly, there's no saying where unl
may land,"
"I'll iiiiiI Aliss Uurlmi'ii ens,, enough,
inn'uiii.   There's uo difficulty in thai,"
wus Kuio's remark.
Mrs.  Dunbar, having gol  what sho
, required mil. of Knte .lessop. finally arranged to meet her at Ilie upper part
; of Vauxhall Bridge Road in tlie neighborhood nf Ilie bridge, and not very
! fnr from ihe Tate Gallery, In a couple
| of days' time,     ['lie tiling wns to be
i done quietly and on lhe sly;  nothing
, was lo be said to Jiiirhurn with regard
to her meeting anyone. Kate  wus to
1 muke bold  lo cull ou  Barbara if she
could not manage lo see her out of
: doors; and she was to ask her If she
would  not go  with  her  to  thn  Tale
I Gallery and show lier some of tlie line
j pictures,   For Knte confessed that she
I lnul an Inward passion for pictures, al-
1 though she did not. understand any-
] thing at all aboul them. Mrs. Dunbar
interrupted her conversation,
"Gol tbe girl how you like," Bho
said, "The Tate Gallery, is a good
j idea; I shall lie in one of the rooms
when you bring her in, bul. see Unit 't
Ms not later than Saturday next. Can
I you get nwny ou Saturday? This Is
i Wednesdny; I cannot do without sce-
| ing her longer than Iben."
Kate thought how lovely it  would
! be to have a dark blue rich silk dress
j to wear on Sunday wben she wont on
the   top   of  a   motor   'hus   wilb   her
I young man; she was, iu reality, anx-
j ions to please Mrs. Dunbar, and could
j not for a moment, imagine that the
woman would do any serious hurt to
dear litlle Miss Barbara.    She said,
therefore,  that as far as sbo could
tell,  she would  certainly bring  Barbara to tlie Tate Gallery on Saturday
at four o'clock; that she could not get
away  earlier,  but  that  at  four  she
could certainly be there.
"All you lc c to do is to bring her
there. When we meet, leave her alone
witli me. ol! away, at, once, you understand?" said Mrs. Dunbar.
"Yes, but. what about my dress?"
snid Kate.
"If you call to see me in the evening, you will have tlie dress and the
sovereign. Whatever 1 may be, I am a
woman of my word. 1 am well off, and
can help you ln many ways."
���'Indeed, ma'am, you seem very well
off," said Kate; and she went away in
high spirits, little thinking of tlie harm
she. was about to do to her little lady.
All night she lay awake, wondering
bow she could get at Barbara. Of
course, she had not, the least idea that
Miss Barbara Chance had loft Vauxhall Bridge Uoad, and was now staying
with M_. Sunningley in Dean's Yard.
None of these happenngs had reached
her cars. All she knew was that Barbara, when last she heard of her, was
there, helping to teach Dan his lessons,
and reading aloud to a cranky old lady
instead of earning hor living in the
lively fashion in which Kate earned
hers, in Ferris's shop. Ferris liad not
given over liis keen desire to know
more about Barbara; lie often spoke
to Kate about her, and the very next
day, when she arrived at the shop, he
asked her if there was any chance of
lier pretty little friend coining to take
up her abode as one of the waitresses
in his refreshment rooms. Kate said
she didn't think there was. Whereupon, he looked fixedly at her and
said:
"[ wish you'd get lier to come to
my sh"p; if you do. I'll give you a
sovereign."
"Dear, dear," snid Kate under ber
breath, "if this sort of tiling goes on
for long, I shall become, quite a rich
young woman, and every penny of it
Til want when Paul and me sets up
business together."
Paul was a steady young man, and
devoted to Kate Jessop. He was a
tobacconist, and meant, when he married, lo set up a litile shop of his own,
The happy day would certainly come
nearer when the dark blue silk dress
was obtained (mil Hie two sovereigns
earned! Kate's heart beat very last.
"I'll do my best I will, indeed,
sir," sbe snld.
"Well, see yotl do, my girl, else it's
oul. of here ynu go. Ynu must get Hint
gel lu ihe shop- I want lier, and that's
all aboul  it."
I'Yrris looked us disreputable ns a
Ulan could look while he uttered these
words, and Kale bad a momentary
qualm of discomfort. She had not this
qualm with regard to Mrs. Dunbar,
bul siie had with regard lo Ferris.
Could he possibly injure her sweet
litile Aliss Barbara? she thought.
Even for a sovereign, that kind of
thing was not worth risking! But tbe
days were Hying by; Saturday would
lie upon them in no time. Accordingly,
when lier work was finished on that
evening, she went to Vauxhall Bridge,
Road, and loitered about, talking to
the several bids she knew, and to
sojne of the girls also, closely watching tlie door of number 124b. Nobody
tlie least like Barbara appeared; but
at last, to her Intense pleasure. Mrs.
liussell. as Kate expressed it. "richly
attired," stepped out of lier hall door,
went down the steps, and walked in
the direction of the shops. Luckily for
Kate, and unluckily for Barbara, Mrs.
Russell did* not see the former, but
walked quickly away, for she was In a
hurry. She wus feeling very sad indeed at. having lost her little Miss
Barbara, but at the same time she
was a woman full of commonsense,
and did not think, for an instant, of
preventing Miss Barbara from accepting so Fine an offer.
"T might have known the minute, I
said

looked at hor, that sho was a 'real

"And now, It has turned out to be so,
and she is living in real qomfort iu
Dean's Yard. But for me���if she hail
got Into Chesney slreet���if that nwful
Kate .lessop had gut hold of lier,
where would the llllle darling be now!
Oh, God is good lo the shorn lamb, uiul
tl at I am certain of."
Knte, as soon as Mrs. Russell was
quite out of sight, rang tlie urea bell,
ln a minute Hannah appeared. Hannah
w_s an excellent servant, but she
hud not llie airs of her mistress. Kate
said in an eager voice -
"May l come down and Bpenk to you
for n minute, Hannah?"
"I can't delay- 1 have a lot lo do;
Aliss Octavia llenslowe is very ill.
The doctor has been to see her. nnd
Miss Lavillla is so cross, there's no
bearing witli her. Sny your sny, Knte
Jessop, uud then be off."
"it was Miss Barbara I wanted in
spenk lo."
"Miss Barbara!"
"Sukes alive! You
Barbara here,"
"What'.'" said Koto.
"Haven't you heard?"
"I have heard nothing."
"Well, then, 1  um not g'
yon, so don't suppose it."
"You are not gonig In lell Die
Please do, do, liiinuiih. You know
she wns always so fond of tno���it wus
me she turned to when sho came In
London.    Oil!   llaniiuh.  do lie  kind."
"1 will be kind to her Mrs1, dour little ludy. She has been look away
from here by a gentleman who has
adopted her, and who is. I bellave, a ro.
latum of hers���iiii old gentleman���
very grand and aristocratic looking,
lie had a carriage In moot her, and
1 am not. going lo lell you where she
lives now, but that she lives in roal
comfort is the truth, und that's all
you will get. oul, of me, Kate Jessop.
Good-nlght, 1 must be off. Miss Octavia is in a shucking stale."
"But why?    Whal  is Ibe matter?"
"It. is because Miss Barbara has not
been allowed to come lo read lo her
today. Tlie, poor lady set her mind
on her- -she loves hei' like anything,
but for some reason--a woman following her or something of Unit, sorl, sho
has been forbidden to eotne to Vauxhall Brdge Road for nt. least, a week.
I am not going to tell you where she
be. I could if I liked, but could isn't
would, and now you know where you
are. So be off with you, Kate jessop." ���
Kale, in intense disappointment,
went straight back to chesney street.
A minute later she was in Mrs. Dunbar's room, and had told her whnt she
bad dscove'red: Aliss Barbara Chance
liad left Vauxhall Brdlge Bond; she
had left because somebody bad followed her in the street, and sbe was
not going thero for a week. Where
she was living was not told to Kate,
so Kate could not tell it to Mrs. Dunbar; but at the end of the week Miss
Barbara would be allowed to go back
..gain.
"But there's no good making arrangements for Saturday, ma'am,''
said Kate; "for I can't see lier, try
as 1 may, for a week. When tho week
is up, l wil'. do my best to see her, nnd
then I wil come and tell you."

Lloyd George in Queen's Hall
(Continued From Last ���__ek)
"What were tie Austrian demands?
Servia sympathized With her fellow-
countrymen in Bosnia. That avus one
o�� her crimes. She must do so no
more. Her newspapers were saying
nasty things about Austria. They must
do so no longer. That Is tho Austrian
spirit. You liad It in Zabern. How
dare you criticize a Prussian official,
and if you laugh it is a capital offence. (Laughter). The eoloiol
threatened to shoot them if they repeated it. Servian newspapers must
not criticize Austria. T wonder what
would have happened bad we taken
tlie same line about German newspapers.
"Servia   said:    Very   well,   we   will
give orders  to  the newspapers  that
they must not criticize Austrian in future, neither Austria nor Hungary, nor
anything that is theirs.'  (daughter).
I Who can doubt the valour of Servia
when she  undertook  to    tackle her
newspnper editors?    (Laughter). She
promised not to sympathise with Bosnia, promised to write no critical art.

no public meetings al. which anything
unkind was said.about Austria.
I    ''That wus nol enough, S  'via must

I But these officers had just emerged
��� from n  war where thoy were adding

Supposing Austria or Germany had issued an ultimatum of that kind to this

in a retreat. Frederick Ihe Great chose
his warriors for their height, and that

nations, she will only allow six feet
two nations to stand in the ranks.
(Laughter).
"But nil the world owes much to
the lt.ltle live feet, live nations, Th;
greatest art of the world was tha
work of little nations. The most enduring literature of the world came
from little nations. The greatest literature of England came from her when
sho was a nation of .the lize of Belgium lighting a great empire. ���The
heroic deeds that thrill humanity
through generations were the deeds of
little nations lighting for their free-
���dom.
"Ah, yes, and the salvation of mankind came through a little nation. God
has chosen little nations as tlie vessels by which He carries tl.e choicest
wines to the lips of humanity, to rejoice their hearts, to exult their vision,
to stimulate and to strengthen tlieir
faith, and if we had stood by whoa
two little, nations were being crushed and broken by tlie brutal hands of
barbarism our shame would have rung
down tho everlasting ages.
"But Germany insists that this is an
attack by a low civilization upon a
higher. Well, ns a matter of (act
the attack was begun by tlie civilization whicli calls itself the higlitr
one. Now, I am no apologist for Rus
sia. She has perpetrated deeds of
which I have no doubt her best sous
are ashamed. But what empire has
not? And Germany is the last empire
to point the linger of reproach at
Russia. But Russia has made sucri-,
fices for freedom���great sacrifices,
You remember the cry of Bulgaria
when she was torn by the nio.il in-'
Seneate tyranny that Europe nas evei'i
seen. Who listened to the cry? The
only answer of the higher civilization
was that tbe liberty of Bulgarian
peasants was not worth tbe life of a
single Pomeranian soldier. But the
rude 'barbarians' of the North, they
sent their sons liy the thousands to
die for Bulgarian freedom.
"What nbout England? You go to
Greece, the Netherlands, Italy. Germany und France, and all these la.ids,
gentlemen, would point out to you
places were the sons of Britain liuve
died for the freedom of these countries. (.Cheers). France lias made sacrifices for the freedom of other lands
tban her own. Can you name a single
country in tho world for the freedom
of which the modern Prussian has
over sacrificed a single life? The test
of our faith, the highest standard of
civilization is the readiness to sacrifice for others.
"1 would not sny a word about the
German people to disparage them.
They are a great, people; they have
great qualities of head, of hand, and it
heart. I believe, in spite of recect
events, there is as great a store .,<
kindness iu the Gorman peasant as m
any peasant in the world, but he hus
been drilled into a false idea of civilization, efficiency, capability. But, it is
a hard civilization; it is a selllsh civilization; il is a material civilization.
Tbey could not comprehend the action
of Britain at. tne present moment.
They say so. 'France,' ihey say, 'we
can understand, she is out for vengeance, she is out for territory���Alsace-Lorraine. Russia, she is lighting
for mastery;  she wants Galicin.'
"They can  understand  Vengeance,
they can understand you lighting for

lighting for greed of territory;  they
cannot  understand  a  great    empire

"But thero is the tame swugger __t
honslfuluoss running through t_i
whole of tho speeches. You saw thai
remarkable speech which appeared ia
the Ilritish Weekly this week, lt is _
very remarkable product, as an illustration of tin: spirit we have got t��,
light, lt Is his speech to Ills soldiers on tlio wny to tbo front:
"Remember that the German people
ure lhe chosen of God. On ine, on mc
ns German emperor tbo Spirit of God
has descended. I am Ill's weapon, His
sword, und His vieeregi.il. Woe to the
disobedient, Death to cowards an .

There has been nothing like il. Blue*
tlie days of Moiiamniet. Lunacy is always distressing, but sometimes it ii
dangerous, nnd when you get. it manifested in the lie d of tlie slate, nud it
has become the ,olley of a great empire, it is aboul time thnt it should
lie ruthlessly put away. I do not believe he meant OJI these speeches, it
was simply the martial straddle which,
1 e had acquired.
"Bul Iiii re were men around hilt .

Germany! Germany is left Deutschland I'her Alles!
"That is what we are lighting���
that claim of Iho predominancy of a
civilization, a material one, a hard
one, a civilization which at onco rules
and enslaves the world. Liberty goes,
democracy vanishes, and unless Britain comes to t" i rescue with ber sons,
it will be a dark day for humanity!
"Have you followed the Prussian
Junker aiid his doings? We are not
lighting the Germans. The German
people are just as much under tho l.eol
of this Prussian military caste, and
more so, thank God, tban any other
nation in Europe. -It will bo a day of
rejoicing for the German peasant and
artisan and trader when the military
caste Is broken. You know their pr��
tensions. They give themselves lhe
airs of demigods, walking the pavements, civilians and their wives swept
into the gutter, 'they have no right
to stand ir. the way of a great, Prussian soldier. Men, women, nations,
have all got to go. This is all he has
got to say: 'Wo are In a hurry.' Thi��
is the answer lie gave to Belgium:
'Rapidity of action is Germany's greatest i.sset,' which means 'I am in a
hurry; clear out of my way.' You
know tlie 'ype of motorist, the terror
of the road, with a CO h.p. rar, who
thinks tlie roads were made for him.
Anybody who impedes tlie action of
his car' by a single mile is knocked
down.
"The Prussian Junker is the road-
hog of Europe. Small nationalities in
his way are flung to tbe roadside,
bleeding und broken; women and
children thrust under tho wheel of hii
cruel car. Britain ordered out of his
road. All 1 caii say is this. If the
eld Britisli spirit is alive in British
hearts, that bully will be torn from
liis seat. Wer_ he to win, lt would
be the greatest catastrophe that had
befallen democracy since the days ot
the Holy Alliance, and its ascendancy.

used Postum entirely.
"I had really been at times very anxious concerning my mother's condition, hut we noticed that after using
Postum for a short time, she felt so
much better than she did prior to its
use, and had littlo trouble with her
heart, and no sic: stomach; that the
headaches were uot so frequent, and
her general condition much improved.
Tills continued until she was well and
hearty.
"I know Postum has benefited myself and the other members of the
family, hut not in so marked ;, degrea
as in the case of my mother, as she
wa3 a victim of long standing." Name
given by Canadian Postum Co., Windsor, Ont.
Postum comes in two forms:
Regular Postum���must be well boiled. 15c and _5c packages.
Instant Postum���is a soluble powder. A teaspoonful dissolves quickly
in a cup of hot water and, with cream
and sugar, makes a delicious beverage Instantly.    ?.0e nnd ii.e tins.
Tlie cost per cup of both kinds is
about, tbe same.

Singer at the Front
Among tho Russian officers on the
Prussian frontier is M. Tretiakoff, a
well known singer in tlie Petrograd
Opera, and formerly an artillery officer. To encourage the men, he sang
in the trenches military songs relating
to Peter the Great, the soldiers joining in tlie chorus. He also sang songs
from Tchalkowsky's operas.
During the recent fighting twelve
Russian guns were attacked hy a
strong German force and wen ordered to retreat. One battery was incapacitated owing to the horses being either killed or wounded.
M. Tretiakoff��shouted, "We can't,
leave any guns behind, hoys!" and
went to the aid of tlie buttery with a
few horses, ho himself acting as
driver.
No Peace by Subjugation
As Lord bhurc itit points out pesos
eau never come by subjugation, lt
can never eome by "Britain over all
the world," or "France over all tlio
world," or "Germany over all ths
world." It must eome only by the
mil ions living their own lives quietly,
enjoying tlieir own possessions while
respecting thoso of others, aud each
confiding lu the others' Joint civllla*-
tion. Tlio nations nrust become neighbor-nations, not ruler-nations. And the
rulers who sit lu chairs of state must
be men ot works nnd art,;, and aot
men of the rwot'd. Tlie sword was
never a wise ruler; it has comettn
been a useful servant,���Detroit News.

The Editor and staff of the
Review wish all our readers aud
patrons A Merry Christmas and a
Bright ami Happy New Year.
So far thirty-five persons have
registered as voters in the forthcoming municipal election. There
are seventeen candidates in the
field for the various offices. It is
a good healthy sign to see so many
rate-payers willing to devote their
time and et.crgies towards helping
along our young city. When so
many men are of the one mind it
is a pity they cannot all be elected.
With regard to the Mayoralty
campaign we regret lhat we cannot
accept nomination. It would have
been both a pleasure and an honor
to have aceeded to tlie wis'ies of
our frLiids, and presided at the
Council's deliberations next year.
However, we will lie in the running
for alderman honors, and would
respectfully solicit your suffrages.
Says the Manchester Guardian:
"We quote the following passage
from a soldier's letter as 'another
evidence of the cheerful fatalism of
a Britisher' ; ' We are going strong.
At first we had a day or two of
staryation. Then vaccination.
Next inoculation. Some have insolation. We're going out soon
and some of us will meet annihilation.    What, O !' "

The Elect
By Dr, Frank Crane
These are some of the marks of
the Elect, the Chosen People, the
true Aristocracy, the real Upper
Class.
They are. clean. They keep
their bodies clean of dirt their
minds clean of prejudice, and tlieir
spirits clean of superstition.
They have strong passions, strictly disciplined.
Their mind is clearest and their
con rage highest in the presence of
| danger,
While they may not always think
correctly, they think clearly.
They do right because it is a
pleasure, and liave passed the apprenticeship of struggle,
Their opinion or belief cannot be
coerced by authority or seduced by
desire. Their intellect is as ethical
as their conduct.
Love is the greatest thing in the
world; but to them there is a greater tiling���loyalty.
They are efficient. They make
good; they do not explain why they
could not
To their employed they are just
ai\d reasonable; to their employer
they are intelligently obedient.
They regulate themselves strictly
they have no wish at at all to regulate others.
They love people, learn something from everyone they meet, and
despise no human being.
They are characterized by simplicity iu dress, in speech, in house,
and at table, They understand
the vulgarity of luxury,
They seek justice as the true
paying fair wages rather than giving alms, changing evil economic
conditions rather than doling bread.
They bear no grudges aud uever
seek revenge,
Tiieir superiority is never exclusive; the greater, ...ronger, and
better they become, the more warmly human they become.
These are the elect.

the first load of freight over it.
Comox has presented a very busy
aspeet these past few weeks with a

Mr. W, Robb is 011 the sick li.it.
Miss Beattie lias gone to Victoria
for the holiday's,
Miss Wright and Miss Wilson
left by Sunday!* boat for Vancouver
to spend the holiday's. A number
of Miss Wilson's scholars attended
her to the wharf to bid her bou

Messrs. Hugh Stewart and K.

wonder what the magnet is that
draws these bachelors back to
Comox?
Why is a crying baby at a concert like a good suggestion? It
should be carried out.
Among the winners at Martin's

W. Kirkwood, 1,
While the road makers were excavating opposite Moore's store a

he is a businessman or uot.
The scholars of Nob Hill, and the
junior and senior classes of the Comox
school gave a combined concert and
Christmas tree in aid of the Belgian
childrens fund on Friday evening last.
The first part of the programme consisted
of three scenes from "Alice in Wonderland." Act 1, "Cheshine Cat, and the
Woodland scene. ' Act 2, "Red and
White (Jueens." Act 3, ! 'The Hail Teapot." The children all acquitted themselves well, and too much praise cannot
be given the teachers who so painstakingly trained them, and Mr. Webster, for
the able manner ia which he performed
his duties as stage manager,
George   Davis   as   the   Mad   Hatter,
marked 10s 6d, was exceptionally good,'
and Miss Flora Piercy as Alice,  looked
and acted as though she had stepped out
of the book.

Miss Winifred Moore made a splendid
Red Onccti, mid Miss Minnie Ryan as
the White (jucen was excellent.
Miss Marion Smith, the Duchess.
Miss Gladys Carthew made a splendid
cook.
J    Wilbert Moore as the Dormouse, with
Mils "Twinkle, Twinkle" was quite a success.
Miss Olive I,oml_n as the stately "fish"
fiiiitiuan wus excellent.
The carpenter, and walrus, George
Sinitli uml Ned Davis, insisted in coming
in to the teapurty.
The opening scene where the gardeners were planting the roses excellent,
and reflects great, credit upon the talented pupils of Cninox.

replied that she was not afraid of them
as they were only 11 pack of cards,
A girl's scan drill by senior girls dressed us Red Cross Nurses, Miss Annie
Beckensell, leader, was a particularly
brilliant feature.
The first scene by the Noli hill school
represented a party of cowboys seated at
a camp fire. Songs and jokes were
introduced.
Miss Taylor, aged 4 1-2 faced the
audience and sang "I Do .ike to Live
by the Seaside." She was quite self-
possessed and received a vociferous e n-
core, and sang the song again.
Historical song by Miss Gage, Bert

The ball-room scene was the best,
where the decorations were roses and

Tlie quick change of Cinderella from
rags to lace was remarkable, and she
looked every inch a princess. Her
smiling blushing face, when the prince
c!io;;c her for his bride was very  sweetj
Numpers of those who saw the play
said it was the best piece of acting that

Kight German warships took
part in the raid on the English coast
last Wednesday morning at Harle-
pool, WestHarlepopl, Scarborough
and Whitby. The bombardment
lasted for an hour, and there were
a small number of casualties: A
despatch says:���The escape of the
German warships is accounted as
simply the hardest kind of luck.
The British admiralty was well informed of the pending raid and had
made preparations for crushing the
enemy's squadrons, but fog interfered and the Germans dashed
homeward. British ships were
ready to take to sea, having been
forewarned that a raid was to be
made, but when they got within
sight of the hostile squadron, the
latter, seeing the Britisli force,
turned and steamed off at full speed.
The fog w.is so thick that the
visitors were able to cover their
movements and get away. The
uavy is confidently waiting for
another chance. The geneial feeling in London is oue of hopefulness
that the Germaus will be encouraged by their success to try again.

A WOMAN'S
RIGHT TO HEALTH
No Reason Why They Should Suffer From
Backaches and Headaches
To evory woman belongs the right
to enjoy a lieallhy, active, happy life,
yet nine out of ten .suiter, often in
silence, i'rom split tint; headaches, tor-
turlng backaches, violent heart palpitation or some olher ot the many
evils that follow anaemia, or heedlessness,
That is why one sees so many
women wdth pale, thin cheeks, dull
eyes and drooping figures���sure signs
that the blood is out of order. All
suffering women should win the right
to he well hy refreshing llieir weary
bodies with the new, rich blood of
health that promptly transforms theni
into healthy, attractive women. Thero
is no other medicine can supply this
new, rich blood so speedily and so
surely as Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills for
Pule 'People. Through this medicine
thousands of tired, suffering women
have found new health and strength.
Mrs. James Drosl, Chlpman, N.B.,
says: "For years 1 did not know what
it was to he entirely free from headache or backache. My hands were
eold and clammy all the time, lt
was difficult for mo to get my work
done, nnd lo walk even a short d lata nee would leave me completely
worn out, My life was one of constant, worry and I thought I would
never be better. I was doctoring all
the time but without a bit of benefit,
and finally tlie doctor slopped giving
me medicine as he said he could nol
help me. Do you wonder that I was
in despair, My mother urged nie to
take Dr. Williams' ��� Pink Pills, bnt I
snid, "what's the use, medicine can't
help me." However my husband gol.
six boxes of the pills, and to please
him 1 began to take them, By the
time I had finished (hem I undoubtedly had improved and there was tho
signs of returning health in my
cheeks und hands. My husband
thought the improvement so great
that he got another half dozen boxes,
and before these were completed I
was enjoying such good health as 1
had not had in years, in fact, I was
u well woman, and have since enjoyed llie best of health. I sincerely
feel thnt I owe my life to Tn: AVill-
iams' Pink Pills, and shall always
recommend them to all sick people."

bridge humored more than one. supposed Swedish fisherman but who iu
reality had his name still on the Herman naval register, ln the event of
trouble thise men, using explosives
stored ln the two houses iu question,

"Dr. Graves." it must be explained,
is an assumed name. The writer
states that lie is a member of a well-
known European family (not German,
il would appear), and that he had
been disowned by them as the outcome ot a violent family quarrel. He
entered the service of the German
war office in the expectation that
through the Influence ot a powerful
patron his family possessions would
be.restored to him. He executed
secret commissions, he states, at Port
Arthur before the Russo-Japanese
war, in the Haitians, in France and in
.Croat Britain, and his strongly circumstantial account of the. workings
of the German intelligence department Is of absorbing interest, and to
the lay mind seems almost sufficiently
powerful to earry conviction. Its
historical value, however, ' would he
foolish for the layman to attempt, to
llSSCSS.
Ono of the most interesting chap,
ters in the book is concerned with the
famous "Agadir incident" of 1911. On
'that occasion Europe was brought to
the verge of war and the German war
party exerted every effort to bring
about a rupture of diplomatic relations with France. The German warship Panther entered the Agadir harbor, but was withdrawn by the captain after he had received an ultimatum from French and British warships.
Dr. Graves states tbat he himself was
despatched by the Kaiser with a secret verbal message to lhe captain of
the Panther who was instructed on no
account to use force, even though lie
might receive contrary official Instructions. The incident, according
to Dr. Graves, was deliberately
brought about by the German Emperor, as a means of determining how
closely Britain was willing to stand
by Prance in the event, of trouble.
"It took a master stroke to bring the
situation up to the point of war," says
the author, "for it was a dangerous
business,' with all Germany roaring
for war���ami then avert war when
England and France wero on the verge
of It. "the results were before hiin.
By. creating the situation, he knew
that he had two powerful enemies opposed to him, Good! What he would
do now would be to try to take ona
nation and secretly ally himself with
it, leaving the other out In the cold.
Then began Hie intrigues whicli planned the isolation nf France."
Of the belief whicli prevailed among
some pacificists .el'ore the outbreak of
war that German Socialism would
prove powc .'ful enough to prevent a
European arniageddon. Dr. Graves
says, "To a close student these assertions are absolutely wrong. Teutonic
Germanic races have ever been given
to deeply analytical, philosophical
studies, criticising and dissecting
the policies of their rulers. But underlying you will find a deeply practical
sense and appreciation of material
benefits" The German Socialist is in
fact a practical dreamer, quite in contrast to his mercurial, effervescent
Latin prototype.
Dr. Graves believes the German
secret service lo be the most efficient.
In the world. Next, comes Prance and
ttussia and then Britain which has
only entered seriously into secret service work on the continent of Europe
during the past few years, but during
that period has made great progress.
Ue claims that In addition to the
fleet of Zeppelins and other airships
the possession of which Germany has
acknowledged, others the nature of
whose construction has been kept a
strict secret are also in reserve. These
have never been used In the general
manoeuvres. In these ships the Germans "have overcome the, condition of
tulk and heaviness   of   structure by
their government chemists devising
Hie formula of a material that is lighter limn aluminum yet wlilcn possesses
all that metftl'S density und which hm;

Dr. Graves   expresses   tlie   opinion
that aeroplanes cannot prove sureosH-
i ful iu attacks upon Zeppelins, because
i the   Zeppelins   can   rise to a   much

I wlienever one of the new German explosives strikes, conflagration begins.
Tlio "Japanese peril,"   Dr.   Graves
stales, Is a bogey deliberately liianu-
| facturod by tho German government
I "to keep America's hands full ln   the
event of the coming European war. It
is all bluff,   and occasionally Japan
! must be rewarded for keeping up Hie
j bluff.   Let me emphasize, with all due
j knowledge of the alarmist's fears that
the United Slates need never fear the
I 'Yellow Peril' as long as she does not
I antagonize Hie   dominant powers   of
Europe."
Tlie information as to Hie danger
which Dr. Graves said threatened
the Forth Bridge, was given "in return
for England's fair treatment of me
during my trial." Of the events which
preceded his arrest he says:
"Going "da March,    1    arrived   in
Edinburgh and put up al, the old Bed-
lord Hotel on Prince's slreet, a quiet
select Scottish hostelry,   I  registered
under my quasi-correct name of A. K.
, Graves, M.D.,    Turo, Australia.    My
1 "stunt" was to convey the impression
j of being an Australian physician tak-
| ing additional   post-graduate   courses
: at the famous Scottish seat of medical
', learning.   After a few days' residence
! at the Bedford,   1 installed myself In
i private quarters   at a Mrs. llaelead's,
j 21!  Craiglea Drive,  Edinburgh.    Ths
| ordinary expense provided for my re-
; sidential quarters was  ?75 a week.
i This, of course, did not include "extras" such as entertaining,   motors,
etc.
"For the first fortnight    I quietly
took my bearings, creating a suggestion that I was a semi-invalid.   Having by   this time, familiarized myself
with Edinburgh    and surroundings, I
| made frequent trips to Hie Firth of
��� Forth,   upon   which was located tho
! Rossylli base. Now across the Firth
j there is a long bridge. 11 is between
the ltossyth base and the North Sea.
! Warships going to and from Hie naval
] station pass nude.- it.   But more about
i this bridge   later���something for the
I benefit of th. English admiralty.
"Gradually I worked myself into the
confidence of ono of the bridge keepers.   I shall not give, the man's name,
for to do so would be to injure bim,
an'd quite unwillingly he gave me, facilities for studying the naval base and
furnished me with scraps of informa-
t tion that I wanted lo know. For this ho
received no money and he was not a
traitor to his country.    Through the
I little acquaintance I struck up with
i him I was able to make a thorough
i study of Hie bridge and its structure���
j a strategic point,   the   bridge.   Also,
j through the offices ot my good friend
I the keeper, 1 was introduced to som^
| of his "pals" In the waterguard.   Be-
i cause of my  intimate knowledge of
| Boffbie Burns, Waller Scott, "inside"
i history ot I .'nice Charlie, antl���ahem
j ���Scottish   proclivity   for  a  drop   o'
j whisky,   they accepted me as a half
; Scotchman.
"From the   waterguard   I obtained
1 more definite   information   regarding
I the ltossyth base.    So much for the
I topographical knowledge which conUl
only he obtained    through    personal
j contact with men   who actually knew
| every Inch of the ground. The charts
I back In   Berlir    could   not give me
I that exact,   information.   The higher
j scientific data   of ,the   fortifications
! and the base,   I obtained by social intercourse   with high placed   officials
���officers and  engineers at ltossyth
��� whom  I  entertained    at    various
times.
"Tlie schooling I had received in the
silhouettes presently came in handy.
One night my friend, the bridge tender, learned tbat the .fleet was getting
up steam. Accordingly, I stood on
the bridge that night, and waited. At
five o'clock in the morning a gray,
rainy foggy morning, through which
the ships moved almost ghost-like, I
made out sixteen war vessels. From
their silhouettes, I knew them to be
dreadnouglits, cruisers, and torpedo
boat destroyers. At once I filed a
cable by way of Brussels Informing
the Intelligence Department of the
German navy that an English fleet
sixteen strong had put to sea. Subsequently I learned that in describing
the sixteen ships T had made enly one
mistake "
The Royal Horse Artillery
Charged   Through   an   Avalanche   of
Destruction
A thrilling story la told of the gal-
lantry of tbe Itoyal Hone Artillery
and iho destruction uf one of tho big
German guiiB during the fighting ou
the River Alsue.
Tho Germain, were moving one ot
their biggest gnus, drawn by a team
of 40 odd burses, behind a range of
bills. They had to pass a gap, whicli
exposed tbem to view. Tbo move
ment of Hie guns was screened by a
body of Hussars, but something went
amiss witli the cavalry at tho critical moment, anil our gunners catching sight of the, movement, promptly
made up their minds to have a go.
Tlie great artillery duel was raging
at tho full, shells were fulling like
hall.
There was a sudden slntter of
wheels, and out Into the open rushed
u battery of horse artillery. Tho wnr
horses, driven at, lieuillotig speed,
thundered over lhe uneven ground
at racing puce.
The gun carriages, almost lifted
from tlie ground liy tbo headlong
rush, bounced over tho broken surface, while guns were trained on
them from every angle whilo shells
were bursting round them.
Still tho gunners rode bravely on
Ihrough that avalancho of destruction���i(, was Britain at ber lips!.
They reached the angle they had
raced for, and the gnus slipped into
action as though lt were a trial day
at tho Curragh camp.
The big gun of the enemy, with
its long train of horses, came from
behind tho screen of hills to cross
the second gap, flanked by a squad
of cavalry.
Then the field artillery spoke, its
deep-toned growling scarcely heard
amidst the deafening thunder that
was shaking tho whole battlo front
like the booming of breakers on cliff-
crowned coasts. Shell followed shell
with lightning speed and deadly accuracy, the littlo hand of British
gunners slipping round their guns
with cat-llko activity and coolness.
The squad of cavalry in tho gap
felt the iron hall, and men and
horses wont down in tangled heaps,
The enemy tried vainly to rush
the big gun across tho miry ground
to the safety of the hills ahead. The
horses went down and the men with
them; then, llko hammers on an anvil, the shells fell upon tho long grey
gun that Krupps had built for the
Biege of Paris, until it lay a useless
mass of steel!
THE SETTLEMENT TO BE MADE
WHEN GERMANY IS DEFEATED
WHAT THE GERMANS THINK WOULD BE EXACTED
Acre of Wheat for Empire
Patriotic suggestion by Saskatchewan
Grain Growers' Association
Acting on the suggestion from one
of Hie memberB of the Saskatchewan
Grain Growers' Association, the central organiaztion is making a unique
patriotic appeal to the farmers of this
province. The appeal ts that each
grain grower will set apart one acre
of land to sow with wheat next spring
the proceeds from which will be given
to the Patriotic fund. The central organization has a lopled this plan as lt
appeals to them as a fair one, in which
all .the farmers, whether they had a
poor crop '.his year or not, may lake
part.
As the association has 850 locals,
it is anticipated that the acreage under cultivation for patriotic purposes
will be 50,000 acres and the crop, at
an average of 12 bushels per acre, as
this year, would mean 600,000. bushels
of grain or almost an equal amount
of money. Truly a princely offering
from the farmers of Saskatchewan.
Ross Rifles Ordered
Factory at Quebec Working Night and
Day and .undays
For the lirst time tho Ross rifle factory has started Sunday work, besides
working night and day week days to
get ahead with the contract for a hundred thousand rides which it has just
received from the British coverument,
and which calls for complete delivery
in the space of a year. Tlicre are now
about 800 employees at the factory
and this number will be gradually increased until there aro practically
double that number, which will be
shortly after Uie new year. Tho rifle
demanded by the Imperial authorities
is th", same as issued to tho Canadian
contingent. Extensive additions are
being mnde to the factory.
England Will Not Forget
India may be assured that Great
Britain will never forget. The ambition of British rule in India has always been to secure the well-being of
its people. There have been blunders, and there have been misunderstandings, but India has shown us
that, with the fine instinctNif a highly Intelligent and highly civilized race,
she appreciates the good intentions
and .hat, with an equally fine chivalry,
she forgets the blunders. Now we
stand together for all time, two races
made as one by loyalty to the same
Throne and to the same ideals of progress and honor.���London Daily Express.
Kaid Maclean Bereaved
That gadant old Scottish soldier,
Kaid Sir Henry Maclean, has suffered
a severe bereavement in the death of
his only surviving son, Captain Andrew De Vere Maclean, of the East
Surrey Regiment. Captain Maclean,
who was In the Special Reserve of
Officers, joined his regiment at the
outbreak ot the war, and fell in the
fighting on the Aisne.
Sir Harry himself, before taking
service as military instructor of the
Moorish Army, was in the 69th Foot,
now the 2nd Battalion of the Welsh
Regiment.
An Interesting Article Written Six Years ago Giving the Opinion
of a high German Personage on the Probable outcome
of Present War   Expected to win within Six Months
A good deal has been written ahout
the terms to bo imposed on Germany
when tlio time comes to uiuke peace
It is interesting to know, writes the
London correspondent of the Scotsman, what the Germans themselves,
when looking forward tu this war,
thought would be Hie price they would
have tO pay iu the event of defeat. In
thu latest Dumber  to   band  ot the
French colonial organ, "La Depcche
ColOUlaU." there Is republished an ur-
tieio which appeared In tha columns
of that journal just six years age, ln
September, 11)08. In this irtlule a contributor reported a conversation be
had had with "a high German personage" on tho prospects of n European
war, and uomo of the statements then
advanced make Instructive reading at
tho present time. This "high German
personagn"--speal(iiig It will be re-
membered, six years ago���said that in
Germany war was expected to breaa
out ln live years' time. The military
authorities wero uot ready for It at
the moment, but they calculated that
in five years they would be ready to
beat both France on land and this
country on the sen.
ln their anticipated conquest ot
France they wero relying on the
French religious and political dissensions, on tho spirit of anti-militarism
on the proclamation of a general
strike by tbo Labor Federation at
tho outbreak of -/ar, on tlie physical
and moral decadence of the French,
on the disorganized condition of their
army and navy, on the pacific character of nioBt of their educationists,
and on the revolt of Hie natives in
tho French colonies, lt was admitted,
however, that thero was another sliLi
to the picture In tho event ot war
between the powers of the Triple Al
liance and the Triple Entente, thu
Herman prophet predicted a blockade
of Hie North Sea liy tho British and
.ranch fleets; the intervention ot
Denmark, which would necesslta'. j tha
detachment Ot a German army corps
to keep watch on that country; a
i .ublo revolt in I'rvislan Poland aud
Jn Alsace Lorraine; a war which
might Inst six mouths, and consequently a defensive war oi the pari
of France on her eastern frontier;
the landing of a British nriiiy of 120,-
nun men, commanded by Sir John
French; an attack by an enemy of a
quarter of a minioL Russians in Bait
Prussia where Germany would be con.
tent to '. C' o . the defensive with
throe army corps, tho weakness of tho
support given by Italy to the Trlplo
Alliance; and a molt in German West
Africa.
If the war were to last long��r than
six months, the opinion was expressed
that Germany would bo ruined, and
the terms to which she might have to
submit if her plans miscarried were
set out as follows: Tho restoration of
Metz and i jrraln. to France; the neutralization of Alsace under the rule of
a Prince elected by the rest of Europe; tho restoration of Schleswig-
Ilolstein to Denmark; a war Indemnity of 100 mlllio.-; to France, would
also take over Togoland and Hie Cam-.
croons, tlie surrender to Great Britain
of West Africa, Heligoland, half \
dozen German battleships and a dozen
Herman cruisers; a war inleninity ol
1B0 millions from Germany and Aus-
tr- to Uu sin, and other modifications ot Germany's eastern frontiers.
lt may be doubted (concludes the
correspondent:!:) If Germany will get
t.tf so lightly as this, financially, when
the time comes for settlement.
Germans Fled from Booty Repairing Airship in Clouds
A Funeral Procession and t: Herd of
Oxen Frighten the Enemy
Refugees from Russian Poland relate the following doings of the German troops In that territory.
A German force, headed by Lieutenant von Laur.itz, entered Konin
and occupied it without meeting any
resistance. The Germans Immediately ordered the Inhabitants to bring
them twenty hostages���fifteen Jews
and tlvo Christians���who represented
the wealth and the prominence of tho
population.
When the hostages appeared before
the commander he told them that a
deep pit had beeu dug in the cemetery, and that it his orders wero not
carried out to the letter live Jews
and one Christian would be shot forthwith and burled together in the pit
prepared for the purpose.
After this grave warning tlie lieutenant commanded tho terrorized
hostages immediately to deliver to
him 200 watches, 2()0 alarm clocks,
and 228 fur caps, the deficiency in
the figures to be compensated for by
a payment of 100 marks (��5) per
article.
While this decree was in course of
execution Lieutenant vou Lounitz ordered his breakfast, lu the menu ot
which figured 2 lb. of salmon and
three bottles of cognac, and also
breakfast for the lower ranks, who
were to be treated to the same number of courses with the exception of
the "delicious" salmon. As, however,
there was not an ounce of salmon
obtainable throughout the length ami
breadth of tho town of Konin, the
lieutenant "graciously condescended
to delete this item front the menu.
When the breakfast was over, a
parade was organized in the marketplace, the main feature of which consisted in tlio soldiers standing erect
with loaded rifles and reverently saluting Lieutenant von Launltz, who,
inebriated almos'. to blindness by the
cognac, was making convulsive,
though pompous and boastful, movements on his horse.
In the midst of the magnificent
operation and all the grandeur attending it a funeral procession was
observed in the distance. Tho Germans took this to be a company of
Cossacks and fled In great panic together with their drunken commander, to a village close by.
Hero they composed themselves and
commenced a rigorous plundering
campaign. Having packed all their
spoils on vans, uiey were just making the final preparations for their
giorious departure when "Lhe;- were
suddenly impeded by an impenetrably
dense colud of "smcke" coming nearer
and nearer to their, ranks.
Thinking it was the effect of guns
of the approaching Cossa-:ks, they
again fled in terror, leaving only
cheaply bought booty behind them.
Meantime out of the mass of "smoke
naively emerged a herd of innocent
oxen.
A few days later three German officers came to Koniu, and after investigating the "brave exploits" of
Lieutenant von Launltz returned the
fur xiaps r.nd some of tho other plunder to Hie owners who had eo quickly
delivered them in response to- the
lieurenafit's threatening decree.

Breathless Feat Two Thousand   Feet
Above the Sea, During Channel
Patrol
Tho mnn who walked over Niagara
on a tight-rope will have to take a
hack seat ln favor of our Intrepid
naval airmen. Heie Is the offici-.l account ot a deed, the bare imagination
of which take one's breath away: "On
one occasion, during one of the airship
patrols, it becamo necessary to change
a propeller blade of one of the engines. Tho captain feared lt would b*
necessary to descend for this purpose,
but two of the crew Immediately volunteered to carry out this difficult
task In the air, and, climbing out on
to tho bracket carrying the propellor
shafting, they completed the hazardous work of changing the propeller's
hlado two thousand feet above the
sea."
This Is an ext let from an account
of the operations of our naval . irmea
communicated by the secretary of the
admiralty to the press burer.u. The report states that during Hie course ot
tho war the Royal-Naval Air "Service
���naval wing of the Royal Flying
Corps���has not been Idle, airships,
aeroplanes, and seaplanes having
proved their value in many undertakings,' While tho Expeditionary Force
was being moved abroad, a strong
patrol to the eastward of the Straits
of Dover was undertaken by both seaplanes and airships of the Naval Air
Service. The airships remained steadily patrolling between the French and
English coasts, sometimes for twelve
hours on end, while further to the
east, with ihe assistance of the Belgian authorities, a temporary eapiana
tase was established at Ostcnd, and s
patrol kapt up with seaplanes between
this place and Hie Knglish coast opposite. By this means it was Impossible
for the enemy's ships to approarli the
straits without being seen for many
miles.
Belgian Farmers for Saskatchewan
A movement having in view the settlement of Belgian farmers in SaskaU
ohewan has been started at Hegina
and is receiving good support, Lieutenant Governor 3rown having agreed
ot act as patron to the Belgian relief
committee in charge of this work.
Careful atiention will be given to the
details of the scheme in order that
ihe results may be satisfactory. Tha
Pootmans Bros., who are of Belgium
extract and residents at Regina, art
among the members of the relief committee, and are endeavoring to carry
out the scheme to a successful conclusion. It is claimed that the Belgian farmers are among the most skilled in the world and with the desolation In tlieir own land, caused by
war, it is recog.iized that many of
them will have to immigrate to othtr
li nils, aud as Saskatchewan ha-- aa
abundance of land, not now cultivate
ed, the opportunities for these Belgian farmers to settle in this country would be great. Lleutentmt Governor Brown, iu discussing thia
scheme recently pointed out that the
Belgians would make excellent dairy,
men and market gardeners.
