Geoffrey gave one glance at Ralph

slightly and sharply, much as if he

Geoffrey wondered. Did this mean

terrace, close to the ground, ll was
precisely the precaution taken by
modern burglars to baffle capture in
ease of being disturbed during their
predatory proceedings,
But burglars would . not come to
Ravenspur. A minute's reflection con-
viced Geoffrey of lhat. The name and
horror of the house were known all
over England. Everybody knew of the
watch und ward kept ihere, and no
burglar in his senses would risk what
amounted to almost certain capture
Berlin Shows Big Population Decrease
The Berliner Tagebultt prints some
interesting figures showing u marked
decrease in the population nf Berlin,
in April I, this year, the population
of Berlin proper was l.'HiS.Tlfi. against
1061.73(1 ul the beginning or lhe same
month in 1914, During the month of
April, this year, there was a further
decrease of 14,574 persons. Of these
13,131 were males and 1,443 females.
Of course, says the Tngebliitt, this do-
crease can really he attributed to the
fuel, that so mnny of Berlin'3 citizens
are at the front.
"Tiere also has 'jeen considerable
decrease in traffic, Figures just, prepared show that in April, this year,
the street railways carried 47,642,723
passengers, which is five millions and
a half less than in April, 1 ni4. The
elevated and underground roads carried 6,234,760 passengers, being a decrease of l.coo.ooo compared with the
same period in tlie previous year. Tax-
iealis and other vehicles carried 1.-
663,686 persons, being a decrease of
nearly live millions.

A War Dog Story
Dog That Followed Fortunes of a Soldier and Rescued His Master
When Wounded
One nf the best dog stories nf tlie
war, and with the additional merit of
being absolutely true, is told us by
Mrs. Armnr Corry, who personally met
the hero thereof at the American hospital at Neuiliy. This dog, named
Fend 1'Air, belonged to an Algerian
soldier called to the colors. He managed to get on board his master's
ship and landed nt Marseilles with
him: crossed France to Belgium, ec-
compnnied him In the great retreat
and also in the victory of the Marne,
I and shared with his soldier owner
| the life in the trenches. One nighl the
trench was blown up by u shell, and
the man was buried, wounded, in a
mass of earth. Fend l'Air scented out
the exact place where his master lay,
started digging, and at last got his
head clear, and then barked continually until be summoned some stretcher-
bearers. Tliese dug the wounded man
out of the earth, and he was taken
eventually lo Neuiliy, where the
American hospital relaxed the rules
so ns lo admit the dog as well as his
master. And the man is now recovering and owes his life directly lo ihe

I teniutic rotation of crops. Including

l duced to be returned to the farm.

I of extra grade, costing $5.85 per
cwt., and averaging 77.", pounds, or
$45,30 per bead. Tbe eosl of buying
and shipping oul was u few cms
more than $-' per head, and the cost
of shipping back and selling ii little
less than if", making the total expense out and luick under $5. They
were shipped buck to Soiilli Si. Paul
and sold .v.iy :il, 1915.
Twenty six    bead   of  the  besl   lin-
 i Islied of  be two curs, averaging 1,064
pounds, told for $3-35, which wus the
highest   price   puid   that   day.  und   22

$7.05. This made an average of 8c
per pound and an average weight of
approximately 1,000 pounds, or $86
per bead.
One cur of tliese cattle was fed on
the farm at Aberdeen, Soiuh Dakota,
und the other at Grand Forks, North
Dakota. Tltey were fed praiieally
the same feeds, but the Aberdeen
load was fed grain a little longer and
showed moro liuish. They were a
litlle lighter than the Grand Forks
cattle, but more of them sold for the
top price.
From     November   until   January

Sir.���The following question
asked at th entrance evaminations
in June may remind your renders
of tlie little boy who drew the picture of an aliimal with a long heavy
body, short less, long snout, and
short curly hair. Any person looking at the picture would have called it a pig.    The boy called   it   a
Question. ''Skitch a map of
Europe and mark the position of
the following; the countries at war,
Seine, Rhine, Danube, Vistula,
Kiel Canal, Dardanelles, Vosges,
Carpathians, Caucasus, Kast Prussia, Galacia, Alsace, Heligoland,
London. Paris, Warsaw, Petrograd
Vienna, Belgrade, Ostend Havre "
Any persou reading that question
would say it was Geography; but
our education department says it is
British History ! The pupils were
not prepared to draw a map ou
history day,-and did not even have
a lead pencil. Can the Department
be excused on the ground of ignorance ? The explanation for thus
cheating children may be that it
was done to get at the teachers.

The following interesting letter is
from Arthur Collins, brother of our
townsman, Mr, II. V. Collins, who
left here with Ted Humphries and
others when the war broke out,
I' was very sorry to hear that you
bad lost a chum in tlie scrapping

brother last mouth, he was in the
Rifle Brigade and had gained the
mllltaiv cross before he was shot.
As you can guess one E*ets so used
to seeing dead and wounded out.
here that it does not worry oue at
all. I am writing this letter in a
hut aboui three miles behind the
firing line, for wc came out of the
trenches last night after having
thirtyeight days iu without a rest.
We can now get a bath in whicli
we are very badly in need as 1 have
not had my togs off all that time
and when things like that happen
tliere is sometimes a little or some
times a big insect not often mentioned in natural history that troubles
one fearfully and I am now iu such
a state that I am really afraid to
take off my under vest for fear of it
running away. So you can imagiue
how I am looking forward to a good
dip and a change of togs. But to
change the topic, as I am sure this
does not interest you very much, I
will try to describe to you what it
is like here tn the billets. As I
told you we are about three miles
from the front lines and the hut
that we are occupying is jolly comfortable inside, it holds about forty
men and is fine and warm. Just
uow the noise is fearful as ther�� is
a chap just opposit me playing, or
rather trying to play, the bagpipes
and he is making  a mosl   hirrible

morning    when   llie,   started   p mrlng
shells  over   us,   anil   a dressing station
nearby ju.'.t missed some   "coalboxes."
The  next  night one  of our  battalions
made uu attack on a certain part of the
German  trenches which  were nbout a
hundred yards away ami situated  iu an
orchard, we acting as supports to them.
We  were rushed  down tlie road whilst
the attack was 011 and they started pouring hundreds of shell over on the road,
far   Ihey   were  shelling   the   village  of
I'l'stulicrt   which   they   knew we would
have to pass through.   We went through
the place at a (lead run and it wits jolly
luuil   going as  all the   houses lnul been
knocked down and the road was strewn .
with debris.    Hut  we  managed  In get
dowi to the trenches without any cusul-
ties.   The battalion  that was attacking
had by this time taken the trenches and
we  found  the communicating  trenches
and roads strewn with wounded waiting
to be taken to tlie dressing station, so all
we had to do was to wait for the German
counter attack which did rot come  off
Two nights later wc were taken down
11 the trenches that had lately been taken
a'ltl spent a very pleasant time lying ill
tie bottom of theni, dodging shells, for
they shelled us from three o'clock in the
morning till four in the afternoon uud
tie following Monday we had to undergo
the same experience again und thut is
when most of our casullies occured, in
fact very few of our battlion came out of
it. We stayed down in these trenches
for nearly three weeks and hud some
jolly exciting times. From tliere we
moved down to Clivinehy where as I have
snid we had some very exciting times
The place we are now iu is eompuri-

A German Romance

A recent story, much featured in
Berlin, has described the trip of German submarines from wilhelmshaven
to Constantinople, via Gibraltar
Straits. This is said by the British
naval authorities to bo an invention.
A British naval officer is quoted in the
New York Times as saying:
"That story was given out because
the German government wished to
impress the Fnited States with the
' idea that its submarines could easily
cross the Atlantic and destroy shipping ou this side in the event of a war
between tbe two countries. The Germans liave established a submarine
