____________________________ Hilary;
Strangways' plate om- morning about
a fortnight after Dolly Egcrton's:
disappearance was from Mr. Langton. Tlie address was the Hotel dc
la Marine in a fishing village on the
north coast of France.
"My dear Strangways,���I feel that
1 have been treating you badly keeping you in suspense. You know
what bas happened���I was obliged
to tell Margaret, How I bated it.
But it had to be done I She took it
like a heroine. They have disappeared for the present, even from
you; from me, unless I am needed.
Margaret was wild to get her mother away���where she would hoar
nothing. We have found what we
believe to be a safe place, What
will happen afterwards, I do not
know.    Wc  have    taken    the    first
step.    Afterwards Who    knows
but tbe world may end tonight?
Yours faithfully,
"Gervase Langton."
Hilary's reply, as anyone might
have anticipated who was aware of
his disposition, was to take the Continental express. Luckily be had
plenty of lime for it���and to arrive
at the Hotel de la Marine, Audigiiac,
sometime, in the early afternoon.
Hc was met by a white-aproned
patron with a manner of beaming
affectlonateness, who welcomed him
warmly and informed him that Moti.
sietir Langton was absent and not
expected till the hour of dinner.
Madame, sitting behind a range
ol many-colored bottles, knitting
industriously, lifted her olivc-hueu
face, which thc long, blue car rings
became amazingly, and reminded
Gustave that Monsieur bad walked
to Marquette to see the church.
"It is possible that after Monsieur
has refreshed himself lie may wish
to walk across the dunes to meet
Monsieur Langton, who always returns the same way."
Monsieur refreshed himself, and
was shown his bedroom, which was
In lhc Chateau du Bois, just across
the road from the Hotel dc la Marine. His host and hostess both accompanied hini to make a selection
of his room. Tlicy were obviously
proud of their possession of a Chateau du Bois which they used as an
annex when the hotel was full lo
overflowing, as it had been up to thc
first week in September. The Hotel
de la Marine had little room for
guests. Monsieur should have the
Chateau du Bois to himself. He
would not feci too solitary. Why, the
Chateau grounds were alive with
birds. It was just such a green sol-
ilude as Monsieur and Madame bad
pictured to themselves when they
had lived In Paris, before tlicy bad
come to tins villainous place. Presently Monsieur and Madame wcrc
going to retire on a modest competence and live in the Chateau du
Hois in company with the blue-eyed
black-gowned daughter whose pic-
tun- they had pointed out to Hilary
while he refreshed himself; was at 1
present, poor -fegcl, a widow In Paris
with   four  small  angels of children.
Audlgnac he had a mind to stay a
bit, unless events brought him back
to England sooner than he expected.
As lie went down the village street
he nii'l a cure, a brisk, red faced Utile man, with _ mop of red curls,
who greeted liim with a beaming
smile, and would have passed on his
way if Hilary had not slopped him.
Hilary bad a gift of tongues which
had been very useful to liim in thc
career he had chosen for himself.
lie explained easily to Monsieur
Ic Cure that be was to be housed in
ihc Chateau du Bois, but that he did
not wish to sleep llicrc Iill the floor
of his room had been scrubbed, tlle
draperies and carpets turned out of
doors, and the windows cleaned.
M. le Cure understood perfectly,
lie shrugged bis shoulders over
Monsieur nud Madame and the Chateau du Bois. Would .Mansicur like
to go elsewhere. There was a widow���an excellent creature���-whose
rooms were of a cleanliness. True,
she followed the business of washerwoman, which might not be altogether agreeable to Monsieur. Still
for llis part be would prefer that to
the Chateau du Bois, which was
closed in by trees.
Good-natured Hilary preferred lo
stay at the Chateau, fearing lest he
should offend Monsieur and Madame
Dufour, whom lie found an interesting couple, true Parisians cast away
in this Ultima Tliule, far from artists
thc theatres, the boulevards, all that
made  life worlh  living.
Well then, the Cure would send
him at once a woman who could
be trusted to clean. If Monsieur
would but indicate the room he
should find all done before he went
to bed. He could trust poor Margot. She was deaf and dumb, but
she understood wonderfully; and
Monsieur le Cure had learned the
finger alphabet so that lie might
communicate with ber. Margot
would bring her scrubbing brush,
her pail, her soap. Would it not be
well if Monsieur bad a fire in his
room so that the floor should dry
after being washed and not. run tlie
risk of giving Monsieur cold? Max
got would bc home by this time.
She worked for an English Monsieur
who lived ovcr there���thc Cure indicated the swelling line of the dimes
against the sky���but she came home
to her little liouse at five o'clock in
the afternoon. M. le Cure would
give her all instructions. Poor Margot! She was a pitiful creature of
the  good  God���a  saint,    almost,    a
They parted with compliments on
either side; and Hilary following the
instructions he had received turned
off across the sand dunes. He found
the upward sloping road and took
it, passing on his right the old
Church of St. Pierre, which stood
solitary amid ils graves out on the
lonely dunes. He bad seen the
church from the village of Audigiiac
and had thought it very near. It
was in reality more than n mile.
The old iwelfih century church,
squat and strong, supported on its
great arches, had au air of being
pressed into the earth. The graveyard, full of wooden crosses blown
one way by the sea wind was desolate behind ils embankment, tlie
tops of crosses peering ovcr at the
living who passed that way down
to the cheerful village. Many of
the dead of Audigiiac wcrc not in
the churchj-ard, but in thc gray sea,
by which the village lived, by which
the men of it so often died.
Up and up the road went, between
the dunes covered with coarse grasses on which the sheep cropped. At
the top of the bill there was a farmhouse, or Hilary conjectured it to be
a farm bouse, hidden away behind a
blank space of eyeless wall, He
went on and met a shepherd keeping his sheep, wearing a smock-frock
and carrying a crook. 'lhe, shepherd's amiable dog came forward
and fawned on Hilary, who stooped
to  pat  il,  ami  had  to listen  lo    lhe
Three Years
Too Late
Peace Proposals Might Have Had
More Weight Three Years Ago
If lhc pope, immediately after his
election "in September, 191-1, bad issued the appeal for peace which he
now makes, ifc would have been an
act of Christian statesmanship
Jtoi'thy of the great organization
which he heads. At that time peace
on ihc basis of the status quo ante
without reparation, with an agreement for general disarmament, on
the broad principle of forgive and
forget might have been possible, so
far as the allies arc concerned. It
would have failed probably through
lhc scornful rejection by Germany,
who was then looking forward to an
easy and early triumph and lhe mastery of the world, but it would have
established the Influence of the Vatican in the right quarter.
Three years of war, however, wilh
its experiences of every form of
^rightfulness and savagery, have
made it quite impossible for the civilized world to place ihe confidence
in Germany which ii might have
given then or lo feel lhal il can
again trust its security to any promises of the. present German government. More than that, the world ol
civilization cannot consent that any
of thc principles which are at tlie
base of German policy and ambition
shall bc further recognized.
The matter of reparation is not
merely one of justice, but primarily
of future security. Unless Germany
pays a heavy penally for what she
lias done, she will never take, to heart
tbe lesson that she must nol do it
again.. The penalty imist bc heavy
enough to convince the German people'to a man that they cannot afford
a government representing the ideas
and principles for which lhe present
German and Austrian governments
stand in this war; that they must
win back their place among men by
accepting the modern ideas of liberty
and democracy and repudiating
wholly the ancient barbarisni of race
domination by force. It is three
years too late to talk of peace oil
the old status quo. The pope should
have proposed that when Germany
was winning, instead of wailing till
Germany has abandoned hope of the
world conquest and is oil the verge
of collapse.���Buffalo  Express.

Belgium's Hard Master Had Reputation Even Among Prussians
An Englishman writes: Yon Hissing, the Slavcmastci- of Belgium,
was notorious ill the Germany army
for years before tlie. war as a creel
martinet. He had been in retirement for some time before 1914���in
consequence of cavaliei treatment of
the kaiser on a certain occasion���

man to bully the Belgians because.
of his reputation for brutality in Germany.
No man, of course, was so directly
responsible for the murder of Nurse
Cavell as Bissing. and lfuiis at, hoir-
may rest assured that no one could
havc carried out the deportation outrage more ruthlessly than he.
Thc enslavement of poor Belgium's

proclaimed ambition lo rule the conquered kingdom by "love."

On June 18 the frontier correspondent  of  lhe    Amsterdam    Telegraaf
, sent to Iiis paper the following infor-

the  heading of "The.   Belgian   Indus

"According to au ordinance of the
chief commander of the fourth army,

Future for Canadian Fisheries
"I preiict a wonderful future for
the Canadian fisheries," said Major
Hugh Green, officer in charge of the
fish supplies for the overseas Canadian army, and the imperial board of
trade. "If the war wcrc to end tomorrow the British fish trade would
not be reorganized for at least five
years. The Canadian fisheries should
produce $100,000,000 annually instead
of Ihe $3-1,000,000 produced today."
Is "Alright" Alwrong?
A  father writes  that his  son  has
been severly  scolded  by Iiis schoolmaster for using    the   phrase    "all
right" in its amalgamated  form "alright," and asks if ihe latter is not
an abbreviated modern form as legitimate  as.  say. "already."    Far   from
being a modern upstart, "alright" is,
as a matter of fact, of very hoary antiquity, being used by English  writ
ers of a  very  early  day.     ll   may  bei

Germans Talk of
* The Next War
A Paean for Sea Food
"\ldea Has Taken Hold in Minds   of
Gen. von 1 icbert, in i speech at
Rathcnow, Prussia, is quoted by thc
Deutsche Pages Zcitung as saying;
"Wc cannot sign a peace before
we have the Flanders coast, a colonial empire and maritime bases.
Should we not realize this now we
must prepare to work for it after the
war in view of the next war."
Gen. liebert's speech was loudly
cheered by his bearers, but it was
criticised by the German press. The
Vorwarrts declared:
"This may prolong the war until
Germany has been so beaten that
even our pan-Germans cannot think
of a 'nest lime.'

Supply of Fish the Only Food That
Is Inexhaustable
It Is estimated that tbe fish consumption is about twenty pounds to
the person a year. The consumption
of meat is about one hundred and
seventy pounds per capita a year;
these are averages, of course, but
they arc approximately correct. The
price of meat is about double that of
fish. It would make a great difference in the cosl of living if people
ate more fish  and  less meat.
The supply of fish is the only
food supply that is inexhaustible, lithe vast resources of neglected seafood now almost untouched were
utilized, the result would bc a great
saving of meat and a great reduction
in the family living expenses.
Fish is delicious and nourishing
food, and it seems remarkable that
so little of it is consumed, The food
controller appears lo have as one of
his main objects the conservation of
the meat supply. One of the most
practical ways of doing this would
be to educate the people to make
greater use of fish. One way to obtain a greater appreciation of fish
would be to supply the public with
information about its food value, and
recipes for its preparation. A great
many people do not understand bow
to prepare fish for the table. Many-
people have an unfavorable opinion
of fish as food because they have
never eaten it properly cooked.

How Canada Cares for Her Disabled
Soldiers���A  New Chance  for
Every Defender
A corner of the cobblers' room lu
one of Canada's military convalescent hospitals lias been turned into
a barber's shop. The barber, of
course, is a soldier, but, unable to
fight, lie lias exchanged the bayonet
for the razor. The cobblers, too,
are soldiers in the same situation
who have exchanged the rille a id
bomb for the hammer and last.
That busy room, with cobblers
and barber side by side, is a good
illustration of Ibe astonishing variety of methods employed by thc
military hospitals commission, to
equip Canada's disabled defenders
for active service in lhe. field of
peaceful industry wlien forced lo
quit the field of battle. If a man is
found unsuitable for one occupation,
there is always another lo try; and
one of the main objects of lhe commission is to discover what each
man is suited for.
The barber was a difficult man to
suit; but he was suited al last. Thc
record docs not slate lhe. number of
fresh woltnds inflicted on his wounded comrades by Ids preliminary operations; but they cannot have been
very serious, for Ids chair became
quite a popular resort, ll is a self-
supporting business, loo. The chair
and mirror were loaned by a patriotic
firm; but the oilier requisites of tlie
trade are paid for b-y the soldiers'
five-cent shaves.
It is also an educational institution, .this barber's corner, like the
rest of the room. Ex-soldicrs learn
to shave the faces and cut thc hair
of their fellow-citizens as tlicy learn
to mend their slioes, or lo act as
carpenters and metal workers,
draughtsmen/and typewriters, bookkeepers and beekeepers, gardeners
and engineers.
A few, quite unfitted for their old
trades, will need special training for
new occupations, and will receive it
freely, as well as money allowances
for their families' support while tlicy
arc being trained. But nearly every
man is able to cam a good living
when be comes out of the convalescent hospital, it remains for his fortunate fellow-countrymen, for whom
he offered his life, to see that he always gets the work lie is best able
to do.

Want To Know Why
Under  Democracy We   Will   Know
the Reason
In Germany, under autocracy, lhcy
say "Verboten" and that ends it. Nobody dares ask why. In a democracy
lhc multitude is accustomed to ask
vhy when anyone says "Verboten."
The kaiser can kick a premier
around the block and the plain people may say nothing. Tlie autocrat
may decree foodless days if he wishes
and woe betide him who asks questions. Under democracy we will
know the reason. W'e have the right
to ask why! Onc of the first things
American children learn is to ask
why. Onc of the first things Gtrrnian
children learn is to obey! And so all
lhc children of the earth may have
their chance to ask why the democracies of the world arc going (o kick
the last "verboten" sign off the planet. The eternal desire to ask and
learn and reason is goin-. to bc enthroned as the supremest thing on
earth. And that, in a very plain,
simple way, is what it's all about.

When a person speaks over the Telephone, tbe tones and
accent of the voice are verv distinct; each talker recognizes
instantly the voice of tbe other.
That's what makes Long Distance telephoning so satisfactory, You know whom you are talking to, you know your
message is being received, nnd you get your answer.
Every telephone is a Long Distance telephone.

-Germans Talk of

"Wc cannot sign a peace before

.Gen. llebert's speech was loudly

"This may prolong thc war until

A Paean for Sea Food
Supply of Fish the Only Food That
Is Inexhaustable
It is estimated that the fish consumption is about twenty pounds to
the person a year. The consumption
of meat is about one hundred and
seventy pounds per capita a year;
these arc averages, of course, but
they are approximately correct. The
price of meat is about double that of
fish. It would make a great dilTcr-
ciicc in the cost of living if people
ate more fish and less meat.
The supply of fish is the only
food supply that is inexhaustible. If
the vast resources of neglected seafood now almost untouched were
utilized, the result would be a great
saving of meat and a great reduction
in the family living expenses.
Fish is delicious and nourishing
food, and it seems remarkable that
so little of it is consumed. The food
controller appears lo have as one of
his main objects the conservation of
the meat supply, One of the most
practical ways of doing this would
be to educate the people to make
greater use. of fish. One way to obtain a greater appreciation of fish
would be to supply the public with
information about its food value, and
recipes for its preparation. A great
many people do not understand how-
to prepare fish for the table. Many
people have an unfavorable opinion
of fish as food because, they have
never eaten it properly cooked.

How Canada Cares for Her Disabled
Soldiers���A New Chance  lor
Every Defender
A corner of the cobblers' room In
one of Canada's military convalescent hospitals has been turned into
a barber ��� shop. The barber, of
course, is a soldier, but, unable to
fight, he lias exchanged the bayonet
for the razor. The cobblers, too,
are soldiers in the same situation,
who have exchanged the rillc and
bomb for the hammer and last.
That busy _ room, with cobblers
and barber side by side, is a good
illustration of the astonishing variety of methods employed by the
military hospitals commission, to
equip Canada i disabled defenders
for active service in the field of
peaceful Industry when forced to
quit the field of battle, if a man is
found unsuitable for one occupation,
there is always another to try; and
one of the main objects of the commission is to discover what each
man is suited for.
The barber was a difficult man to
Stilt; but he was suited al last. The
record does not state the number of
fresh wounds indicted on llis wounded comrades by his preliminary operations; but lhcy cannot have been
very serious, for his chair became
quite a popular resort. If is a self-
supporting business, too. Tlie chair
and mirror were loaned by a patriotic
firm; but the other requisites of the
trade are paid for by the soldiers'
five-cent shaves.
It is also an educational institution, this barber's corner, like the
rest of the room. Ex-soldiers learn
to shave the faces and cut the hair
of their fellow-citizens a.s lhcy learn
to iiirnd their shoes, or to act as
carpenters and metal workers,
draughtsmen and typewriters, bookkeepers and beekeepers, gardeners
and engineers.
A few, qui tc unfitted for their old
trades, will need special training for
new occupations, and will receive it
freely, as well as money allowances
for their families' support while Ihey
are bring trained. But nearly every
man is able to cam a good living
when he comes out of the convalescent hospital. It remains for his fortunate fellow-countrymen, for whom
kc offered his life, lo see that he always gels the work he is best able
to do.

When Masculine Constancy   Turned
a Sudden  Somersault
A story about Lord Kitchener, who
uns often spoken of as "the most
distinguished bachelor in the world,"
is being told. A young member of
his staff when he was ill-India asked
for a furlough in order to go home
and be married. Kitchener listened
to him patiently, then lie said:
"lvenilwortli, you're not yet twenty-five. Wait a year. If then you still
desire to do this thing you shall have
The year passed. The officer once
more proffered his request.
'After thinking it over for twelve
months," said Kitchener, "you slill
wish to marry?"
"Yes, sir."
"Very well, you shall have your
furlough. Anil frankly, my boy, I
scarcely thought there was so much
constancy in the masculine world."
Kcilihvorth the slory concludes,
marched to the door, but turned to
say as lie was leaving: "Thank you,
sir. only it's not the same woman."

Animals Under Fire
Cats Do Not Mind Machine Guns or
Different animals will act differently under heavy bombardment, the
same as different men will act difTci-
cntly. Dogs, as a rule, have showl
great distress when shells burst near
them and howl piteously. On the
other hand they have been known to
dash along the front of a trench during infantry fire, barking and apparently enjoying the noise. Cats don't
stem to care whether they are shelled or machine guns are trained on
them, as long as they have a dry
corner and food when they are hungry, There have been instances of
lost dogs and cats actually venturing into Britisii trenches during an
engagement. Some of them lived in
cottages near the firing line, others
strayed a long distance. A west
county yeomanry contingent was
adopted in the thick of a fight by a
black cat, which survived a bombardment that killed many men, and has
since lived sumptuously in billets

Want To Know Why
Under Democracy We   Will   Know
the Reason
In Germany, under autocracy, Ihey
say "Verboten and that ends it. Nobody dares ask why. In a democracy
the multitude is accustomed to ask
.hy when anyone says "Verboten."
The kaiser can kick a premier
around the block and the plain people may say nothing. The autocrat
may decree foodless days if he wishes
and iioe betide him who asks questions. Under democracy we will
know the reason. Wc have the right
to ask why! One of the first things
American children learn is to ask
why. One of the first things German
children learn is to obey! And so all
tlm children of the earth may have
their chance to ask why the democracies of thc world are going to kick
lire last "verboten" sign off the planet. The eternal desire to ask and
learn and reason is goin-r to bc enthroned as the sup rem est thing on
earth. And that, in a very plain,
simple way, is what it's all about.

The mystery surrounding the. trouble over potatoes in Holland has

impartiality, Holland agreed to supply England with so many bushels of
potatoes a month.

Figures Show that Shipping Losses ate Steadily Growing
Smaller, and the Submarines are Doomed to Failure
issago of

A message of hope and quiet confidence in the future was recently
given lo the British nation in tlu
house of commons by Premier Lloyd
George. The people of the Brilish
Isles cannot be starved, despite' the
German submarine campaign, he declared, and the military situation
emus more hopeful. The difficulties
of the Allies will grow less and their
troubles of Germany will Increase
und her power fall away.
"This is lh" supreme hour for pa-
llcnce," the Premier declared, lu conclusion, "for courage, for endurance,
for hope, [or unity. Lei us go
through this hour with a temper
thai will enable us to destroy a greal
military    despotism.       Let    ns    go

The Premier said he agreed lhal

he told the truth, even if il was palatable. 'Ihey could not exercise
reasonable judgment or come to delirious regarding facts unless both
llie cherry and discouraging sides
were presented to Ihein,
I'he Premier said he. proposed to
deal with the food situation and sub
marines, because special efforts were
being made to create an impression
noi justified in flic least by the fads,
Earlier in the year he had cailed attention to the very anxious condition
of the food supply. Since, then, owing
largely to the .energetic efforts of
Baron Devonpon, the. former food
controller, and organization bv the
shipping controller, the situation
hail improved considerably.
This time last year the wheat in
this country amounted to 6,480,000
quarters and now it is 8,500,000. The
slock of both oiits and barley, the
Premier added, also was higher.
There has been a considerable saving
in bread consumption and, owing to
closer milling and food economy,
there has becn an addition to lhc
wheat stock of 70,000,000 quarters
per week.
lie still urged economy in view of
the general wheat position. The more
the counlry economized, thc less it
would have to draw upon the reser
voirs of the United States and Can
ada, from which Italy and France al
so have to draw. There had been an
increase also' in the reserve of sugar.
The necessary labor for the harvest
was forthcoming and, by spring,
there will be 8,000 tractors. The
Premier added: "With reasonable
economy there is no chance of starving out the people of these islands."
Dealing with the shipping situation, the Premier said that the Germans had been busy circulating
figures regarding the destruction of
shipping. J hey were doing it in
Germany to cheer up their own peo-
. pie, and were circulating a set of
figures throughout Germany and
Austria, on thc authority "of the German admiralty, with lhe object- of
creating the impression that England
could not  last  much  longer.
The unrestricted submarine campaign began in February, and by
April, the Premier said, England had
lost 560,000 Ions of shipping in one
month. The German official figures,
he added, claimed that England was
losing between 450,000 and 500,000
monthly, after allowing for new construction. The figures of 560,000 tons
for April was gross. In Tunc the
losses had fallen to .-0,0-0 tons
This announcement vas cheered
Iri addition, the Premier said, he
had taken step; for quickening shipbuilding and had ordered a good
many ships abroad In 1915 the new
tonnage built was 688,000 tons. In
1916 it was 533,000 Ions. For the
first six months of this year it was
480.000 tons. The tonnage acquired
during the lasl six months of the
year, the Premier added, would be
1,430,000 of which 1,0(10,0(10 was being
built in Great Britain. 'The tolal for
the year would be 1,900,000 tons.
The Premier declared lhat the net
shipping losses were far from being
whal the Germans claimed. They
were 250,000 (uns monthly, and if
the present improvement was maintained the net loss for Julv and August will be 175,000 tons each,
The figures showed that the admiralty was meeting with considerable success in combatting the submarines. ^ The shipping controller
had organized shipping by means of
better loading and discharging of
ships more, quickly, and by taking
ships off longer voyages, so that, although the tonnage was diminished,
they were carrying more tons. Till;
was in addition to the large naval
Premier Lloyd George said he he
lieved the losses would grow small
er. He was sure construction would
increase if more ships were still
needed. If the United States pu
forward her full capacity, as he had
no doubt she was preparing lo do in
ter own thorough way, there would
be sufficient tonnage not only foi
whole of 1.18, bin, if necessary
"1 do not think," the Premier said,
"lhe lime has come for a full review
of the military situation, 'I'he main

u cannot rven state facts without
embarrassing  those  who  are  trying
restoro the situation in that country. But while they arc doing il
bravely, with great courage, and. I
think, with great thoroughness, the
brunt of the fighting must fall upon
olhcr counlries. And considering all
the difficulties with which we are
confronted _ our armies have won
very conspicuous successes.
"It is difficult even to dwell upon
the difference which the temporary
collapse of the Russian military
power has made in the task with
which  our soldiers are confronted."
Mr. Lloyd George said that Brilish
d visions which have been fighting
and temporarily are exhausted pass
behind the lines uniil they are reformed, but that the German divisions in the same condition go to
Russia and hold a front which "docs
not impose severe military obligation, while fresh divisions from Russia come to the western front. That
increased the number of Germans on
the western front.
Under those conditions, what hail
been achieved was one of the most
brilliant episodes in the hist
the^ British army.
"The best Germany can-do now,"
Mr. Lloyd George continued, "when
what practically was her most powerful opponent at the beginning of
the war is paralyzed by internal difficulties, is to hold her own against
the attacks of the Britisii and
French. And she is not quite doing
ii. On the contrary, in this year she
has been beaten iu several great battles with severe losses, and with
hundreds of her guns captured
which is not a bad test of winning
or losing a battle.
"With Russia recovered and America really in, with those fine
troops of which wc saw a specimen
yesterday, and which were a symbol
of America, coming iikp this worltl
struggle with a virile'swing���Ihosc
are the things the Germans and their
allies will have to think about."
A Record Breaker
Russ    Watchmakers     Win     Unique
Rights in Recent Strike
The watch repairers of Petrograd
have won a slrike that is record
breaking in its demands.
Every watch repairer who received
200 roubles a month has been raiser,
to 300. Those who received over .00
have had an increase of 50 per ccnl.
These increases are retroactive and
go back lo January 1, 1917, Every
watch repairer in Petrograd, there
fore, has received, in cold cash  re-
ntly, at least 600 roubles.
Every watch repairer from hriu
forth will receive a month's
on  full pay.   Every year his
wages will be increased the
a month's pay.    Winn    he    is    siek
he will receive full  wages lor Ihrcc
months.   If he is called to    war h
will    receive a  month's  wages    and
also a bonus of one month's v iiti
man, on  the floor of lhe
other day, in  urging  lhe
the  espionage  bill,    lie  w
proved  his  point  just   as
had   said   there   were   half
really  clever spies  iu   the  country.
It may do us no harm, one writer
points out, if there are. 100,000 spies
in our midst, but onc wireless plant
concealed in the heart of the Cat-
skifls or in that most obscure place
of all, the roof of a city building,
would do  harm  enough.
There arc two kinds of German
spies who may be called "military"
and "psychological," lor example,
Germany had spies all over Ireland
before the war. They told Prince
Licknowsky, the German ambassador li London, lhal Ireland would.
iise in revolution the moment England declared war. Si> ihe prince
lold the kaiser thai he could count
on England's being unable in take
a huge part in a general war. lorn
as sin- would he by internal dissension.
Licknowsky had a waiter anil a
governess working in county Cork,
They reported '.hat Southern Ireland was a network of revolutionary
plots. But the Irisli, alter the identification of the spies, showed lhal
waiter and governess had "loafed on
the job."
They were paid for sending reports
lo the German embassy, and tlicy
had to send something. If they had
said Ihere was no plot, there would
have been no more work for them
to do. Ami their superior, thc German agent who directly employed
Ihem, thought he would have lost
his job if hc had nothing to tell the
ambassador, So that by the time
the reports were assembled in the

British Successes
Greatly Exceed Enemy in Number ol
Prisoners Taken
"Remember," says an aeule student of the war, Mr. Frank Simonds,
"that the Britisii now have to their
credit a long series of local successes.
They have in the lasl year captured
at least 75,000 German prisoners,
probably nearer 100,0111), with a loss
of less than 10,000 prisoners themselves. They have taken between
400 and 500 guns without losing ii
single piece and they have driven the
Germans back at all points when they
have attacked. 'I'hey have established an artillery superiority frankly
conceded by the Germans.
"And here," for llle present, it
would seem the western situation
must stand. It is v.ailing, I believe,
for the arrival of sufficient American
troops to give thc allies in the we^t
that numerical superiority in reserve

The  Kaiser  Will  Have to  Pay    for
These Eggs
Germany will have a lot ni bills to
pay when lln- war i> over ami "ue ol
thc most important of them i^ a Wll
for a basket ni fish and eggs. Ihere
is today "at an English port," as the
censor  makes us  say    nowadays,
fisherman who is mighty anxious for
the war to come to an end. lie is a
poor man and therefore the hill he
holds-ligaiiist the kaiser is all the
more important lo him. This certificate of indebtedness will br- handed to the German emperor personally
if the fisherman has his way. It so
happened that one peaceful afternoon in the early days uf the war,
while alone in his boat, within rifie
shot of the harbor, a submarine sud-
ritnlv emerged alongside. Before the
man had time to inli overboard from
fright an officer stuck his head out of
the conning lower, and in perfect
English asked if In- could have some
fish. "Sun-," said lhe excited lishe.-
man, as he turned over a basketful.
''Can you get us som^eggs?" asked
liie German. "Sure," said lhe man In
the boat, and promptly pulled I'm- llie
shore, disappeared inlo his hill and
reappeared with several dozen eggs,
which he brought out to ilu hungry
submarine crew. Then instead of offering to pay, ihe crew said
"Thanks," and closing down the
hatch, disappeared from view The
fisherman explains that he thought
they were English, otherwise he
would not have supplied Ihein.
The fact that the kaiser was destined to play the role of the modern
Attlla and become the scourge of
Europe was prophesied nearly thirty
years ago iu a remarkable article
published in the New Vork Times in
April 1888 by Harold Frederic, the
iamous novelist and correspondent
At that date, of course, the kaiser
was still crown prince of Prussia,
and Mr. Frederic, who was in Berlin
on behalf of his newspaper, had
many opportunities of coming in contact with him.
"One shudders," Mr. Harold Frederic wrote, "as one pals the mild,
contemplative head of the bloodhound solely because lhe stories that
have been told of the terrible ferocity which.lurks under this sleek and
gentle exterior. In the same way you
look into ihc face of this young heir
of the Hohenzollerns and remember
with wondering reservations the malignant tales wliicli ha-.e been told
of his inner nature by those who
knew it best.
"Their dislike for him is based on
a general conception of his character. This view is that he is utterly"
cold, entirely selfish, wantonly cruel,
a young man without conscience or
compassion, lie is saturated with al!
the instincts and ideas which havc
., I raised this parvenu Prussia to i.-
, present eminence, and his character
is the crown and flower of two centuries of might with ruthlessness and
spoliation  exalted  Into a  creed.
"On the other hand, his mother is
the best royal product of a tntally
and fundamentally different civiliza-
tioii. Prince William habitually
speaks of his mother to his associates, and familiars as 'the Englishwoman,' He ostentatiously addresses
her 'in German, although he know?
English perfectly, and she has always made a point of having her
children sjieak English iu Ure n__d_.
"We ail know that it is a mer*
matter of months before he will be
lhc autocratic master of 2,000,000
armed men. The question is, what
will he do? The most common answer is that he will overrun Europe.
It seems very probable that some future Taine, a century hence, pcrhapi.
will write to show that William II.
of Prussia and the German empire
was a mysterious belated survival of
the ante-mediaeval Goths and Vandals���an Attila born a thousand and
more years after his time.
"Nobody with eyes in his head
could have passed the week just
ended in Berlin without recognizing
that if a fire-brand comes to thc
throne the materials are close-
crowded upon him for a terrible conflagration.
"Even now, when I go downstairs
in this hotel to cat my dinner, one-
half the men at thc tables are officers in uniform. The elevator boy
touches his cap to me with a military salute. The waiters when they
rccelve my order turn on their heels
like fusiliers under the eye of a
drill sergeant. The military spirit
pervades everything and everybody.
"-What this means is that the army
ly.re in Germany will utterly swamp
what organized pacific instincts there
are in the empire the moment a

"The military class is all-powerful
in all the upper and middle and higher grades of society. Little of provocation, of thc popular appeals to
national feeling, would make it master of nine-tenths of tho German
people. Kaiser William IL, In the
glamour of his youthful distinction
of face and figure, of hij deep Teutonic prejudices, of hi] all-controlling belief in himself and hii race and
his destiny, could burl a practically
united Germany cast, west or south

"This is not a pleasant or humane
conclusion, hui it is a necessary one.
'ihe lesson taught by Prussia's sue-

"When thou shalt besiege a city a
