Sunningley aud liis portlier liad a
long conversation that evonlag with
regard to Barbara. They quite real-
I/oil her character. Her pride wns excessive. Hut with it all she was thu
gentlest, Bwcetest little girl in tlio
world, anything that hurt hor pride,
however, she ooula not stand, it
therefore occurred to Sunningley that
ho must stop down I'roni his high estate, anil make the child feel tiiat it
was hor father's wish that she should
come to live witli him. Parkes agreed
with him un this point.
"Vou must do it. Sunningley," he
said. "Not a doubt of it. There nre
times when it is not wrong to���to���
dissemble--lot us use that word���and
such a time has come in vour lite
witli regard to little Barbara Chance.
Sbe must be kept out ot that neighborhood; she must he guarded most.
carefully, and if she feels that it wai
ber father's wish that she should live
with you, she will settle down happily; otherwise Dean Chance, her other
cous'n, must take hor in hand; but to
stay where she iu at present is absolutely impossible. In fact," continued
Parkes, "1 don't even like the idea of
the daily reading to the old lady."
"I don'l think she will give that
up," said Sunningley. "We must. not.
expect too much of her at first, and
as far as we know her mother is nowhere in the neighborhood. Sho
knows that If she intrudes in any impossible way, her allowance ceases at
once. She would not give up her allowance for all the world. Therefore,
f think Barbara will be safe with me.
but she would not have been safe
long at Vauxhall Bridge Road."
Mr. Sunningley returned home ami
had a long talk' with his housekeeper, .Mrs. Gray was about, fifty years
of age; she had a sweet, kind face.
She had beon with Mr. Sunningley for
nearly thirty years, she had seen to
bis wants, she had toiled for him,
she had worked for him, she had kept
bis house spick and span. Sunningley
was ric.li, as was also Parkes; but
Sunningley had no family, whereas
Parkes liad a wife and several children, and there was no occasion, according to Mrs. Gray, why Sunningley should stint himself in anything
whal soever. She furnished the bouse
according to ber own taste���which
cannot be spoken of as Al--but she
did ber best. She was a splendid
cook, and she ruled the housemaid,
tlie parlormaid, and tbe kitcbenmaid
with a rod of iron. Tbey must all do
what she said, and no one must inter-
tore. Sunningley gave ber a cheque
every Monday morning, and with that
in her hand she went round and paid
I lie tradespeople. There was no one,
for her station, so respected as Mrs.
Alice Gray. Every one knew whal.
Mrs. Gray was; every one envied Mrs.
Gray her post. Every one noticed
tbat there was nol a house, even in
lhat select quarter, Dean's Yard, so
spick and span, so pure, so white, so
dainty as was Ms. Sunningley's. As
soon as lie got back, on the evening
that lie had Tiiado his arrangements
about. Barbara, he sent for his housekeeper,
"Will you shut, the door, Mrs. Gray?
I have something to say to you."
"Certainly, sir." She eamo and
stood before bim, looking most respectful. She always put on in tho
evening a black silk dross���an old-
fashioned, glace black silk. It was
made not according to the present
style, but with an abundance of fullness in tlie ample skirt, and witli a
full bodice to match. Over the bodice
she wore a heavy gold chain and a
rich gold watch���a present whicli be?
master had given her several Christ-
mases ago. In tbis attire sbe looked
almost like a lady. Her voice was gentle and relined.
"Ve.. sir," sbe said. Nothing would
induce her to sit before Mr. Sunningley, although Sunningley felt very uncomfortable, ami said:
"Take a chair, my good woman."
"I would rather not," she said.
Then, as ho seemed annoyed���"ll refreshes mo to stand, sir. 1 am mostly
sitting when I'm giving it lo those
bussiea downstairs."
Sunningley smiled.
"Well, Mrs. Gray, I have a piece or
news for you."
"Indeed, sir.   News!"
Never to her knowledge had her
master brought any news. What sort
uf news was he going to give hor
"Mrs. Gray, yon must have heard
me speak of my cousin, the Rev. Humphrey Chance?"
"Of course, i have, sir. I'd he a
very queer woman if I didn't know
bow much you missed him."
"I did, .Mrs. Gray. It was one of
tbe pleasures of my life to go and
stay at the Rectory at Worthington-on-
tbe-llill, and have I not spoken to yotl
of his little daughter, Miss Barbara?"
"You have, sir, but i've noticed that
of late you've never mentioned the
child. I often thought. 1 would take
the great liberty of asking you about
ber, sir���where she was, and what
she was doing with herself, now that
Iter dear father is dead. I am alwayi
ho careful lo dust her little photograph, and 1 look at it every day of
W. N. U. 1023
my life.    She has a sweet face, has
.Miss Barbara."
"You are right, Mrs. Gray, and 1
didn't speak to you about tier lately,
because I o<_ild not. I was in great
and terrible trouble about the child."
"Oh, sir! Indeed, sir, I'm more than
"1 cannot give you any particulars,
and you must not ask me for them,
but lhe fact is, we lost her for a
"host Miss Barbara!   host her!"
Sunningley bowed his head. After a
minute, he said:
"That Is true. We found her again,
and she is coming to live here tomorrow."
Mrs. Gray's face changed color. It
was one thing to dust, the photograph
of litlle Miss Barbara, hut it wns
quite another thing for lier to live iu
the same house witli hor.
"llow old is Miss Barbara, may I
ask?" she ventured to say.
"I think 1 can guess her age to ',>,-
somewhere about twenty or a little
under���I am not very good at ages.
The greal tiling Is that she Is coming
lo me���I have adopled her, and 1 wani
you to make her most comfortable.
Everything that can be done niUBi be
done for her. She won't in the leas'.
Interfere wllh you; so don'i be afraid
of that, my good friend. But I want
you to walk out with her every day."
'The hussies will bo worse than
ever if I am out regularly, like that,''
said Mrs. Gray.
"If you don't like our present staff
of servants, though, personally, I have
no fault lo find with them, Ihey must
go, and we must got. others, hut no
expense Is to he spared on Miss Barbara. Now, tell me, what rooms can
we give her?"
"Rooms, sir, rooms?"
"Yes, 1 want her to have a bedroom
and a sitting room."
"Well, sir, there are, of course, the
two rooms on the iirst lloor, nexl to
yours. The sitting room is qulto unfurnished���It has never had any furniture in it since 1 have been ln the
house���hut the bedroom is quite complete, although a little old-fashioi-ed."
"Well," said Sunningley, "we will
leave the rooms as they are until Miss
Barbara Chance arrives, then she
shall choose the furniture for them
both. Get the bedroom ready, and
she and you will go round to tho
shops and choose pretty furniture
for her sitting room. For she is to
have every comfort; understand, Mrs.
Gray, every possible comfort. And
now I think I have told you my news.
She is to he waited on and treated
as what she is���a most dainty and
dear little lady. It will be the joy
of my life to have her with me, and
1 know, my good friend, you will help
me in every way."
"1 will do my best, you may be
sure sir."
Mrs. Gray went rather sadly out of
the room. She was wondering what
Miss Barbara was really like. She
liad heard of her, of course, for Sunningley in the old- days never went to
Worthlngton-on-the-lllU without telling her about the child���the child who
grew gradually into a girl ami from
a girl into a woman. Of her funny little sayings���her bright way; Mrs.
Gray used to love to hear about them.
"But, of course, gentlemen get demented about young ladies like that
and she'll rule tho roost, I can see
that," muttered the woman. "However, there's no help for it, I must
mako her us comfortable as I can."
Accordingly, the next day Sunning
ley was taken into the bedroom Mrs.
Gray had prepared for Barbara. It
was well furnished, but in a very old-
fashioned stylo. It had a huge four-
post bedstead and a thick Brussels
carpet on tbe floor; the windows were
curtained with thick serge of a dark-
red color; there were curtains also all
round the four-post bed. There was an
enormous mahogany wardrobe and
a large chest of drawers, as well as a
dressing table. In short, the room
was replete with every old-fashioned
"It. looks nice," said Sunningley,
smiling, as he surveyed the part-
"It does that, sir. It's a very handsome room."
"And lier dear father was the very
last guest to sleep here," said Sunningley. "That will please her; I will
tell her that."
He was so excited at the thought of
the arrival of his littlo cousin, that
he could scarcely cat any breakfast
that, morning, lie went to the office,
hut ouly "fiddled" with his work.
Parkes suggested that he should cone
lu and help Sunningley entertain Barbara lhat evening. But Sunningley
"No. heave her to mo for tonight,
Parkes. 1 bave made up my mind.
1 am going to ilo what 1 never did
"I thought vou would be obliged to
do it."
"Yes, I am going to fall. I who, as
long as I ever remember, never told
even the ghost of an untruth, will give
Barbara to understand that it was
her father's express wish that she
should come and live with me; and
you must bear me out in this matter,
Parkes. She may speak to you about
it, and vou must bear me out."
"I will. I will," said Parkes. "It
has to be done. - She must be kept
with you, under your protection, fo_
the present, at least. The sooner we
get her married, the better. I was
telling Mrs. Parkes about her last
night, and she said at once, 'if sbe is
really a pretty little girl, the sooner
she gets a husband to protect her, the
"Oh! Nonsense! Nothing of the
sort," Baid Sunningley. ".lust when
she is coming to be a comfort to me,
to talk nbout husbands! She can
think of all that sort of thing some
years hence. When I see any young
fellow worthy of her. And there are
very few worthy of her. She has the
most attractive, sweetest little face
that i ever looked at."
"1 know you're a little daft about
her, Sunningley, and 1 don't wonder,
for she is a very attractive child; and
all the'more, on lhat account, will
young men fall in lovo with her. However, my wife and I can settle that
part of tho business later on."
"Not at present, Parkes. Not at
present." said Sunningley.
lie quite trembled when he got iuto his cab; and when he arrived at
134b  Vauxhall  Bridge Road lie could
hardly contain his joy, as Barbara appeared on the threshold, Mrs. ilii.s-
sell aud Hannah wero both with her.
Her litlle box was hoisted on to tin'
roof of the cab. and tbey drove off to
Dean's Yard. Sunningley took Uia
little, slender band in liis.
"My dear." be said. "1 hope you
will be happy with me."
"Oh, I  wonder if I  am doing right
to come," said Barbara.
"You are, my darling. I will explain all about it afler dinner, today.
You don't know what happiness you
are  giving  to  vour  father's  greatest
"Am 1, really?" said Barbara. "That
makes up for a groat deal. But," Bha
added, "won't your housekeeper dis
like me very much? Won't she fool
that 1 am, in a sort of wny, taking
her place?"
"I told hor you would not do that,
al. present, dear. She is to look after
you.   You are too young���"
"I am nearly twenty," said Barbara,
"That matters nothing. You are
too young to be left alone In a groat
place like London, God bless that
good woman who looked after you,
Barbara! 1 mean to leave her B legacy in my will. 1 certainly do. I shudder when 1 think of what might havo
happened to you. But for her groat
kindness, I really do not know what
awful fate might havo been yours."
Barbara clasped the old gentleman's
hand, and looked into his benevolent,
blue eyes.
(To be Continued)
The    Causes    and   the Issues, iu
Brief   Form,   From the Diplomatic Correspondence and
Speeches of Ministers
(By Sir Edward Cook)
It was a reflection of the first of political philosophers that disturbances
in States, though they mny arise on
trifling occasions, do not involve trifling issues. The present world-wide
war started from the case of Servia,
but Involved even from the start,
much larger issues. If only a dispute
between Servia and Austria-Hungary
had been in question, Britain, as Sir
Edward 'Grey repeatedly stated, would
have had no concern in the affair. But
since, as we shall see, this dispute
was , bound to havo ulterior consequences, it is necessary to understand
what the dispute was about.
Servia is a small, but very ancient,
kingdom in the Balkan peninsula. It
obtained considerable accesion of territory as the result of the recent wars
in Ike Balkans, the war between the
Balkan States and Turkey, and then
the war among the Balkan States
themselves. The Servian people are
akin, in race and religion, to the Slavs,
of which race Russia is the predominant power, and to which race also
many of the subjects of Austria-Hungary belong. On Juno 28, 1914, "tho
crime at Serajevo" was committed,
namely, the murder of the heir-apparent to the throne of Austria-Hungary
and his consort in the capital of Bosnia. That province, once a part of tho
ancient Servian kingdom, had fallen
into the possession of the Turks; the
administration of it had been given to
Austria, by the Berlin Treaty after the
Russ. Turkish war, in 1878; and in
1908 Austria had annexed it. Tho Austrian government alleged (but has not
proved) that the crime of Serajevo
was a culminating point in r. "subversive movement" organized by the
Servian government "with the object
of detaching a part of the territories
of Austria-Hungary from the Monarchy." On July 23 the Austrian government addressed an ultimatum to
Servia. Austria had been "left a perfectly tree hand" by Germany. It was
admitted by Sir Edward Grey that
"one naturally sympathized with many
of the requirements of tho ultimatum,"
and that "the murder of the Archduke and somo of the circumstances I
respecting Servia quoted in tho (Austrian) note aroused sympathy with
Austria." Russia nlso admitted that
"the demands were reasonable enough
in some cases." But thero were two
features In the Austrian ultimatum
which caused alarm and regret to
those who desired to see the peace
of ]. iropen maintained. The first was
tho inclusion of a time-limit, so short
(forty-eight hours) us to leave diplomacy little time to avert war, The second was that what Austria demanded
within 48 hours was not a reply but
the reply dictated by Austria. "I had
never before seen," said Sir Edward,
"one state address to another Independent state a document of so formidable a character." The German foreign
secretary "admitted that the Servian
government could not swallow certain
of the Austro-Hnngiirian demands."
Sir Edward Grey advised Servia to go
to the f.iUhest possible point in meeting those demands, and similar advice
was given to her by France and Russia. The Servian government replied,
with: i I' . 'ninted time, conceding
the greater _urt of th<. Austrian demands. The conceded demands were
of a very stringent character. The Servian reply "involved," said Sir Edward
Grey, "the greatest humiliation that
he had ever seen a country undergo."
Nevertheless, Austria refused to accept the reply, and declared war
against Servla July 28. The part of
the Austrian demands which Servia
had felt unable to concede touched her
very existence as an Independent slate,
and witn regard to these matters sbe
offereu to submit tbem lo The lla.. if i
Tribunal. The fact tbat Austria, while!
rceiviiig satisfaction on tlie other
poinis, bad made lhe refusal ui the|
latter points a casus belli raised sus-'
ptclons of ini- i-.lttmate mter.tlou_.I
"The real question," said the lt_ssian j
foreign minister, "was whether ills-
trii was o crush Servia and to re-;
duos her io the status of a vassal, on
Whether she was to leave Servia a
free ami  independent state.'
It had been recognized from tbe llrst i
that the case of Servia could nol bej
isolated.   The aggression upon Servia
by Austria (with the previous consent
of Germany)  was bound to    involve
other powers.
The (iernian government did indeed
protest to Sir Kdward Grey that "the
question at issue was one for settlement between Servia and Austria
alone;" hut everybody else knew that
it could not be so, and tl.e German
government, as we shall SOJ presently,
seem lo have known tbis also. Tlie
relations between Austria and Russia
bad already been strained by the __.
trian annexation of Bosnia ami Herzegovina.   Aggn. sion by Austria upon
Senia was certain to bo regarded by
Russia with tho utmost alarm ami la-
OlgnatiOD. During the Balkan crisis
the    Russian foreign minister "had
made It clear lo tho Austrian government that war with Russia must Inevitably follow an Austrian attack on
Servla. It was clear Hint Austrian
doin ation of Servla wns as intolerable for Russia as the dependence of
tlie Netherlands on Germany would ���_<���
lo Groat llrlain." "It must be obvious,"
suld Sir Hi,want Grey in Ibo bouse of
commons .luly 27, "to any person wbo
reflects upon the situation that the
moment, lhe dispute ceases lo be one
between Austria-Hungary and Servia
und becomes one In whlcb a not ber
great, power is involved, it can but ond
in the greatest, catastrophe lhat lias
ever befallen the continent of Europe
at cue blow; no ono can say what
would be the limit of the issues that
might be raised by such a conflict."
War between Russia and Austria, in a
cause wherein Germany bad supported
tho latter must involve Germany as
her ally, and France would be drawn
in a��the ally of Russia. The action 'if
Austria and Germany in the case of
Servia was thus likely to challenge a
European war. England and France
and Russia saw this. Italy the ally of
Austria and Germany, saw 11 also.
When the general war was breaking!
out, the Italian government, being!
asked to state its intentions, roplied:
"The war undertaken by Austria, and
the consequences which might result,
had, In the words of the German ambassador himself, nn aggressive object. _oth were therefore in conflict
with tlie purely defensive character ot
the Triple Alliance, and in such circumstances Italy would remain neutral." "Wo were fully conscious," said
the German government itself, "that a
possible warlike procedure by Austria-
Hungary against Servia might bring
Rv.ssia upon tne scene and so involve
us in war in accordance with our
duties as Allies." "As far Germany,"
said the German ambassador at Vienna to the British, "she knew very well
what she wns about in backing up Austria-Hungary in this matter."
Foreseeing all this, Sir Edward
Grey, whose efforts during the recent
Balkan wars had won or him the
title of the Peacemaker of Europe,
was early in the field with proposal.,
for averting war, and the British government "persisted to the very last
moment of the last hour in tbat great
and heneficicnt but unhappily frustrated purpose" (Mr. Asqulth)
Already on July 20, havit.g recelv
ed an inkling of what was on foot, Sir
Edwurd Grey spoke to the German
ambassador of the importance, if the
peace of Europe was to be preserved,
of Austria "keeping her demand within reasonable limits." Tlie suggestion
was not adopted. The German foreign
secretary "considered it inadvisable
that the Austro-Hungarian government should be approached by tbe
German government on the matter"
(July 22). The Austrian ultimatum,
which the same minister "admitted
that the Servian government could
not swallow," was despatched on the
following day.
On July 2:!, having heard from the
Austrian ambassador an outline of
what the Austrian note contained, Sir
Edward Grey pressed upon him, as
also upon the uerman government,
the desirability of persuading the Austrian government lo exlond its time-
limit. The Russian government took
the same line. The Gorman ambassador wns instructed to "pass on" Sir
Edwurd Grey's suggestion, but the
German foreign secretary said that
"thero would be delay and difficulty
in getting time-limit extended," adding, "quite freely, that the Austro-
Hungarian government wished to give
tbe Servians a lesson and meant to
take military action."
On July 24, liuvng received the text
ot the Austrian ultimatum, and foreseeing that if Austria attacked Servla,
Russia would mobilize, Sir Edward
Grey proposed that "Germany, France,
Italy and Great Britain, who had not
direct interests in Servia, should act
together for tho sake of peace, simultaneously in Vienna and St. Petersburg," "in the event of the relations
between Austria and Russia becoming
hreatening." "It would be very desirable," he said to the German ambassador, "o get Austria not to precipitate military action and so gain more
time. But none of us could influence
Austria iii this direction unless Germany would propose and participate
in such action at Vienna." France was
favorable to this plan. So was Italy.
Russia was "quite ready to stand aside
ar.S leave tho question in Hie hands
of England, France. Germany and
Italy." Having thus received assurances that, if only Germany agreod,
his plan might be efficacious, Sir Edward Grey on July 20 formally invited
the governments of France, Germany
and Italy to Instruct tbelr severa' ambassadors to confer with him "for the
purpose of discovering an Issue whit*
wuuld prevent complications.'' Tht
invitation was accepted by France ant
Italy. The German foreign secretary
"COUlJ not fall in with the suggestion
desirous though bo was to co-operate
for tlie maintenance of ponce" (J:ily
Sir Edward Grey thereupon saw Hit
Gorman ambassador (July 27)   and
promised "as Ion:, as Germany would
work to keep the peace I would keep
closely in touch. I repeated that after
tbe Servian reply it was at Vienna that
somo moderation must bo urged." On
the-following day (July 28) Austrian
Hunger;  declared war on Servla.
As the German government was nn
derstood to have accepted "in principle." tlie idea of mediation by the
four powers between Austria and Rus
sia. it was proposed "that, the dermai
secretary of state should suggest the
lines on which Ibis principle should
be applied." The German government
made no suggestion of the kind.
Sir Edward Grey's scheme bud temporarily boon iu abeyance, as Ibe Rus
sian government bad offered to ills
cuss matters wiih the Austrian gov
eminent direct. Tbls offer was ,\o
dined by Austria (July 28).
Sir ttdwar. Grey next, appealed tc
the Gorman chancellor, "If he ens
Induce Austria lo satisfy Russia and te
nbsliin from going so far as tn come
iuto collision with her, we shall all
Join In deep gratitude lo bis excellency
for having saved the peace of Europe"
(July 20). The Italian government, hue
simultaneously appealed lo Germany
in a like sense.
On that same da. the German government   made  certain   proposals    tn
Groat Britain to which we shrill come
presently and which tho prime minister afterwards characterised as "Infamous." But so persistent was the
British government in pursuit of peace
lhat Sir Bdward Grey lu declining Lhe
proposals used language of greal. re
slruiul t.hilj "0), and accompanied
his refusal by yet another "most earn
est" appeal to the German chancellor.
"The one, way of maintaining Iho goon
relations beiwoin England and Gor
many is that they should continue lr,
work together to preserve the peace
of Europe: if we succeed in Ibis ob
ject. tlie mutual relations or Germany
and England will. I believe, be ipso
facto improved and strengthened. Foi
that object bis majesty's government
will work in that way witli all sincerity and good-will. And 1 will say this:
If the peace of Europe can be nre
served, and the present crisis safely
passed, my own endeavor will be to
promote some arrangement to which
Germany could be a parly, by which
she could he assured that no aggressive or hostile policy would he pursued against lier or her allies by
France, Russia and ourselves, jointly
or sepa ately."
On tlie following day (Jtily 21) Sil
Edward Grey gave proof of his sincerity ami made a further effort tot
peace. "1 said lo German ambassador
this morning lhat if Germany could
get any reasonable proposal put for
ward which made it clear that Germany and Austria were striving lo preserve European pence, and Hint Russia and France would he unreasonable
if Ihey rejected it, I would support it
at St. Petersburg and Paris,- and ga
the length of saying that if Russia and
France would not accept it his majesty's government would have nothing
more to do with the consequences." In
order not to leave this promise in the
region of generalities, Sir Edward
Grey threw out a particular suggestion'. "The stumbling-block hitherto
has been Austrian mistrust of Servian assurances, and Russian mistrust
of Austrian intentions with regard io
the independence and integrity of Servia." If Germany would sound Vienna, Sir Edward would sound St.
Petersburg whether it would he possible for the foi.r disinterested powers to offer to Austria to underta_e
to see that she obtained full '-satisfaction for ber demands on Servia provided they did not impair Servian
sovereignty nnd the integrity of Servian territory. That Russia was ready
to accept such a solution is clear
from a peace-formula whicli her government bad drawn up in concert
with Sir Edward Grey. Everything
turned on Germany. On that day sill
sent an ultimatum to Russia.
In the early morning of August 1
(3.30 a.m.) lhe King of England and
his ministers made a last attempt to
secure peace. The king telegraphed
a personal message to tho Tsar. In
Ibis tbe king lirst set out the text
of a communication from the German government. Tho Tsar had pre
vlonsly requested the German emperor
to mediate between Russia and Austria, and had "given most categorical
assurances lo the Emperor William
that Russian troops would not move
so long as mediation negotiation.,
continued." The Gorman government
in its communication stated thai the
emperor was desirous to mediate and
complained that such mediation wue
frustrated by the Russian mobilization. King George wont on to say
that ho was "moat anxious not to mlei
any possibility of avoiding the terrible
calamity which threatens the whole
world;" he appealed to the Tsar te
remove any misapprehension whicli
might have occurred; he proffered his
good offices "to assist in reopening the
interrupted conversations between
the powers concerned." The Tsar re
piled on the same day, "I would gladlj
have accepted your proposals had nol
the German ambassador this afternoon presented a note to my govern
ment declaring war."

"While putting the dogs into the

Don't Impoverish the Island
by sending your money across the water and supporting firms who do not pay local rates or bear local
burdens. Think this over. If you take this advice,
and act upon it, you will help, some little, to
Enrich the Island.

Island, so far as unemployment is concerned, Is get"

distressing circumstances it is
Your Bounden Duty,
if you are a resident of Courtenay, and are interested
in promoting its development and increasing its
prosperity, to deal with Resident Tradesmen,
especially if and when you can do so as beneficially
to yourself, and as
Cheaply as in the Cities.
It may be that the local tradesman cannot afford to
maintain the enormous stocks of the great ci'y stores,
and, therefore, cannot offer you a bewildering clu.ee
of articles; but he will undertake to obtain any article
you need if you make known your wants, and give
him a little time to communicate with the wholesale
houses across the water.
It ts your duty, therefore, to
Deal Locally
whenever possible. Do not, in order to "gratify,a
whim and indulge a fancy," still further impoverish
the Island, by sending your orders away.

The.Kaiser's forces have done nothing and have achieved nothing ;
it is true that they have laid waste
wherever they haye passed, but no
military purpose has been gained
thereby ; a few of their (warships
have wrought destruction upon} a
fractional part of the British shipping, but such commerce destroyers
are now being fast reduced, while
the German naval successes, although admittedly inflicting loss
upon our navy, have been no greater than the successes of any belligerent in a series of sea engagements
that is to say, the British fleet
offered a greater scope for the assaults of submarines and light craft
than the smaller navy of Germany,
sulking the while in safe harbours.
The loss of the "Monmouth" and
"Good Hope" off the Chilian coast
was the result of a gallant attempt
to worst a superior force, and there
would have been no end of praise
for Admiral Craddock had he succeeded. He failed and paid the
1 enalty of failure, but his failure
does not affect the war to any
extent, while his success would
have materially helped. May he
and his gallant comrades rest in
peace, after a valiant fight,
Letter From the Front
This letter appears in the Weston
Sometshire Herald of Saturday, Oct, 31,
and was handed to us by Mr, W. G.
Robertson. It will doubtless prove interesting to many of our readers. Bandsman Ribchester writes to his friend Mr,
Taylor, as follows:���
Dear Mr. Taylor,-1 had just
returned from 48 hours outpott
duty when the parcel with pipes,
etc arrived, and I can tell you it
wan just wbat I wanted, and proved
to be lovely. "Gold Flakes" are
my favorite cigarettes. This morning���we are at the present time dismounted in a wood closely protecting the guns���-whilst going into the
wood I managed to catch Stanley's
eye���he is at present in a different
squadron to me���and we spoke to
each other by sighs, and, whilst
talking, a beautiful "co_bo_" or
"souvenir" (German shell) as we
call them dropped between us, but
neither of us was touched. Since
writing last, a couple of the bandsmen have gone under. We were
in action about a couple of days
ago absolutely in the open. I was
fired at at the distance of 50 yards
by about 20 Germans, but I managed to escape. I was advance
point to the troop, and it was the
intention to capture a farm. I was
to reconnoitre one side, and another
chap the Other; the enemy were
concealed iu the farm, and at not
more than 50 yards they, opened
fire'and of course all the troop
took part in the skirmish, losing
one officer and one man. As I
write this, the shells are buzzing
over us, and one which has just
gone over all thought was going to
burst on top of us. Our favorite
song out here nowjis ..It's a long,
long way to Weston" or "England" or whatever particular town
we may live ih ��� Since I wrote the
first part of this letter (I havn't
been able to send it before) I might
add that while we were in the wood
I spoke about the shelling becoming worse, and they delivered a
terrible attack' and drove us back
and recaptured a village, but this
morning we started operations as
soon as we could see 20 yards, and
the infantry charged the trenches
and we chased them all out of the
place and recaptured the said vil
lage with a great number of prisoners. Can you imagine it, our in
fantry are playing for wagers, the
winner to be the one who pops the
most Germans off in a given time,
One of our officers was proceeding
with a message today, and as he
was going around a corner he was
plumped straight into about 20
Germans, They fired at him, and
fancy he did not eet hit. What
marvellous shot?, eh? Well, to
get back to yesterday, there were
three or four killed by the side of
Stanley and others wounded thro-
the bursting of a shell, but his extraordinary luck still kept him
without a scratch. From your old
friend, with kind regards.

Transmission of Sound Through Water!
Sound is transmitted through water
taster than through air and far more
ftocurately, both as to direction and I
volume.   Submarine signals hnve been j
employed   in  various   tonus  for  the
purpose   of   preventing collisions of
vessels at sea.   A daw type of warn-1
ing device has been perfected, to be |
used under water, in the form of an
electric oscillator or vibrator. This is
attached to the inner side of tlie ves-'
set's hull and is capable of transmitting a note through Ihe water, a distance of more than 25 mites.
The sound waves are produced in
the oscillator by the vibration of a
diaphragm, whicli obtains its motion
from electrical impulses induced in a
cylinder of copper Inside a casing,
suspended in an electromagnet. Tho
sounds are received by a similarly
constructed- media nism of reverse
action. In making tests of the machine, a song from a talking machine
record was plainly heard ln a tank
of waler located a good distance from
tlio source. It is said that the echo
whicli Is returned to the ship from an
iceberg or other object can be utilized to prevent disasters.

An Obvious Truth
Among those visiting an art exhibition held recently in Cincinnati was
an old German who wandered about,
looking at the paintings with interest.
Finally, he stopped before a portrait
which showed a man sitting in -i
high-backed chair. Tacked to the
frame was a small white placard,
reading: "A portrait of J. F. Jones,
by himself."
. The aged Teuton read the card, and
then chuckled sarcastically:
"Vot fools is dese art beoples," he
muttered. "Anybody dot looks at dot
picture vould know dot Jones is by
himself. Noboi.y else is in der picture."

A Possible Result
A good story is told on a Washington lawyer. At a trial ln Baltimore he summoned as a witness a
youthful physician, and naturally in
tlie cross-examination lie seized tho
occasion to be sarcastic. "Are you,'
demanded the lawyer, 'entirely fam
lliar with the symptoms of concussion of the brain?" The young physician replied, "Yes, sir, I am." Then
the smart lawyer put a hypothetical
case before the doctor, in this way:
"If my learned friend, Mr. Reid, and
myself should bang our heads together, would we get concussion of
the brain?" The young physician
calmly replied, "Mr. Reid might."

In a letter which has just been re
ceived In London, an officer ln the
Cavalry Division now serving tn
France, pays a magniflcent tribute to
lhe rosolute spirit, courage and endurance of British troops. The following
are extracts from the letter:

but he is a real plucked one und refuses to go lame. He keeps his condition well, too, considering. I hope I

'.. hear our navy has done well, and
also Russia. We've fought rear-guard
fictions now for a week, nnd I don't
think any troops in the world could
have done it except us and, perhaps,
tlie Japanese. The infantry are too
pitiable for words in some cases, but
they stagger on, and never once have

I am so dreadfully sorry for the inhabitants. Their villages set on fire

the town where all the cavalry were

never thought to see me again. That
all comes from the squadron being

heavy fire. Awful affair. So if I am
reported dead or missing don't believe It, as I am not.
Two wounded Highlanders, who
have reached Glasgow from the Mo_s

infantry could not shoot "for nuts."
It was the shrapnel and lyddite shells,
that did tho damage. Tho accuracy of
tlio enemy's artillery was marvellous,

a grent height over the Allies' en-
tronuhments and hurried back with Information regarding the range.

Highbinders took up a position fnclnr.
a wood where tho Germans wero in
strong force. As thoy emerged our
boys met them with a raking rifle
fire, which mowed them down. On
thoy came again and again with the
same devastating result. Tlieir bullets
came whistling around us, but we
wero indifferent, the marknianshlp being very poor. The German infantry
carry their rifles under their arms,
lho butts resting on tlieir hips, and
they llr.j as they inarch. As the enemy
poured out en masse Into the open it
was like the exodus from the Celtic
and Rangers Scottish Cup final! Man,
If they wero only three to one we
could go through them easily, but
when it comes to 10 to one strategy
as well as bravery has to be considered.
A ftWorite position for the enemy
to take up Is behind massed stooks of
grain, where they are unseen. At
night time they advance to new points
of attack, anil 1.1 soon as daylight
breaks, their fusillade of heavy firing
is renewed. Many of the Germans,
when captured, present a pitiful spectacle, and frequently drop on their
knees beseeching mercy. The British
regiments, as they pass through the
French and Belgian towns are everywhere received with marked hospitality, little children even rushing forward to kiss the hands of the soldiers.
Sir Robert Edgeeumbe, of Newquay,
has received a letter from his son,
Lieutenant 0. P. Edgecumbe, 1st Bat-
tt lion D.C.L.I., serving on the staff of
General Haking, In whicli the following passages occur:
For the last week or 10 days we
have been fighting hard, and are now
for one day resting. Altogether during
five days and five nights I got six
boms' sleep, and so am rather weary.
However, bullets and a real enemy
are a wonderful stimulant, and I feel
as fit as anything. All our men are
somewhat fatigued, but are very keen
and full of fight.
My regiment has had a bad time,
and I am dreadfully afraid they have
been badly cut up, although I can as
yet get no details. They were caught
in a village by Germans in the houses,
who had managed to get there by
wearing our uniforms. Xever again
shall I respect the Germans. Tiny
have no code of honor, and there
have been several cases 'of their wearing French and British uniforms,
which is, of course, against the Geneva convention.
Farmers Should  Devote  More Attention to Live Stock to Meet Increasing  Demand
The outbreak of the war lu Europe
and tbe consequent demand which ls
naturally to bo expected for Increased
exports of meats, limit Canada In a
very much denuded condition as regards live stock.
As a result of the removal of the
American turiff on cattle a heavy export trade developed to the south. In
somo districts In Eastern Cauada,
nearly everything has been shipped
out of the country, except dairy cows.
Thts export trade, together with many
farmers selling tin Ir calves for veal,
can have but ono result in Canada,
viz.: a greater scarcity of meat than
ut present exists, even in a normal
The meal Industry in Canada should
not be allowed to dwindle���rather, the
production of hogs, sheep and cattle
on Canadian farms should bo greatly
increased. To obtain this Increase
does uot. mean tlmt farmers should de-
veto their whole attention to live
stock. The majority of farmers will
admit that with very little extra effort and expense they could Increase
by several head tho live stock on
their farms without in any way interfering with their present system of
From reports to the commission of
conservation, present conditions Indicate a world-wide scarcity of llvo
stock, with little likelihood of an
over-crowded market for many years
to come. The opportunity for Canadian farmers Is, therefore, apparent. To
take advantage of this, farmers should
save their heifer calves to produce
more cattle, while the others may bo
turned oif, not as veal but as beef.
Expert stockmen advise that thero
aro good times ahead for those raising sheep. The high price of mutton
and of wool and the comparative ease
with whicli a flock of sheep may bo
sustained upon land which ls otherwise unsuitable for agriculture, should
suggest a great increase in the number of sheep raised by Canadian farmers.
Increased production In hogs can bo
brought about more quickly than in
any other class of live stock, and
consequently should receive immediate attention.
Animal production on the farm Is
desirable because it Increases the fertility and crop-raising ability of tlie
soil. Good prices are suro to bo obtained for any surplus which farmers
will have to sell on account of the inevitable shortage of supply resulting
from war conditions in Europe. These
j two conditions should be an incentive
to Canadian farmers to Increase their
live stock production. A little foresight now, with modern methods of
feeding, will make increased production easily possible.-���F.C.N.
May Control Telegraph and Telephone
Lines���Other Stringent Orders
An order-in-council has been passed
under the war measures act of the . e-
cent session, empowering the government, If deemed necessary, to take
over and operate any telephone or
telegraph lines in Canada, and providing authority for a strict censorship
of rU telegraphic or telephonic communications. The order provides that
any cabinet minister, delegated tor
the purpose, may assume control of
any telegraph or telephone company,
and use its lines for his majesty's service. It is further provided that the
minister may direct that all messages
be submitted to censorship, whethsr
by telegraph or telephone, going out
of Canada shall go through certain
named offices only.
Any director or officer of a company contravening the Instructions of
tho minister is liable to a penalty of
$5,000 or live years' imprisonment.
Another order-in-council provides
similar penalties for furnisliin; to
the enemy information, plans, photographs, etc., likely to be ct military
use, or for furnishing . intoxicating
liquor to anyone on military duty.
it is difficult to estimate correctly
the actual war strength of Great Britain, on account of the loyalty ami
readiness to serve of her civilian
population. The adaptability cf
British men to any sort of armed
service is always a marvel to foreigners, and comes, no doubt, in part
from tlie national love of sport.
With the declaration of war on
England, the Royal Aero Club issued
a call to every licensed pilot in the
kingdom to register for service with
tho British air forces. Virtually all
responded, thoso owning machines
tendering these as well.
When it is recalled that the Hoyal
Aero Club, up to July 15, issued
860 certificates, one may comprehend the value of Britain's late insistence on aviation. A large part
of this number Is already ln the service, perhaps BOO in all.
As the war is likely to prove an
extended one, this civilian reserve is
going to be of the utmost value as
time will bo afforded these meri lo
become proficient, for field service.
Thus a large gap, due to England's
losses ln the conflict in tbe air, can
be filled.

Tlie Victoria Cross, the supremist
Britisli reward for valor of wnlcj
many will doubtless be won during
the present campaign, Is the youngest of such decorations, only dating
back to the Crimean War in 1866. It
is the most valued possession in
many a home in Britain today. The
Austrian Cross, on the other hand, is
the oldest.
A similar reward in Germany is the
Iron Cross, instituted by the Emperor
Frederick William III. of Prussia in
the year 1813. Russia gives as a decoration to its heroic soldiers the Cross
of St. George, which was founded by
the famous Empress Catherine II. in

Cror;3 is of bronze, and the Iron Cross
as its name implies, of iron (which i.
edged with silver), the Russian Ord._
is of gold, witli n beautiful medallion
of St. George, killing the dragon.
In Austria, again, the cross is cf
gold, and was Instituted in tho year
1757 by the Empress Marie Theresa
soon after her accession to the
Throne. It bears tho same Inscription as the British Victoria Cross,

that a newly enrolled member "avats"
to the savage instinct of his primitive
forefathers when ho sees a bird within shot and brings it fluttering to his
feet, his fellow members with literature, arguments and personal persuasion try to show him the evil of his

King of Belgium Shot His Chauffeur
Progress Du Nord relates a remarkable story of the King of the Belgians
s;.ootlng his chauffeur, who traitorously attempted to drive him into the
German lines.
The king was with his troops south
of Antwerp, says the report. He ordered the chauffeur to drive ahead
of them. After a while the king
noticed the driver had changed the
direction. His majesty warned him
and when the chauffeur took no notice he ordered him to halt. This
having no effect, the king, convinced
of treachery, drew a revolver, and
shot the chauffeur dead. Tl e king
then stopped the car and drove back
to the Belgian lines In safety.
In the chauffeur's clothing papers
were found showing he had received
a German offer of $250,000 foi the
king's capture.
Through the Censorship of the German Press as well as Misrep.
resentation on ihe Pan of German Officialdom, the People
of Germany are Kept in the Dark
From time to time we read extracts;
from the German newspapers, as well!
as wireless despatches from that country, showing how the German people
are kept In complete Ignorance of the
true condition of affairs regarding the
progress of tlie war.   It would appear:
that even the educated and best Informed of tlie more Intelligent class cf
the  German   people  have    been  deceived by the Kaiser, ami the military
party, by misrepresentations ot the
official correspondence between   the,
nations previous to tlie declaration of
war.   The German people are evidently led  to  believe  that Great  Britain
was responsible for the war, und that
since the commencement of hostilities
German arms   have  been  invariably
successful  against the allied  troops.!
They even appear to have supreme
confidence In their navy, and entertain
the delusion that the British naw will
he vanquished by their    own    fleet.
Through tho censorship of news by j
the authorities in  Germany, ami  liy
means    ot    spreading    false reports
broadcast, they are doing everything
possible to prejudice  the opinion of;
neutral countries.    Letters  are now
being received in Canada mailed from,
points in the United States, ond no;
doubt written by agents of Germany,
which contain statements bearing on
the cause and  progress of the war,
calculated  to arouse an  Anti-llritish
feeling.   These letters in most cases
aro being sent to the proper authorities, so that this plan of campaign
may be exposed.
As showing the manner in which the
German people are kepi ill the dark
as to the truo conditions of affairs In
respect to the war situation, the following letter, written by a Berlin
newspaper owner to a friend lu Kngland, is illuminating:
"Never In my life I should have ventured to think that Greal llrit'iin
should ever declare war on Germany,
the nation to which the Britisli had
the closest affinity, tlicre being thousands and thousands of friendly and
amicable relations between the inhabitants of tho two countries. The official publication of the telegrams ox-
chai.ged between tlie three sovereigns
has proved beyond any doubl that Germany up to tlie last moment has ex-
tented her sincere desire to preserve
the peace. True, its situation between
two enemies who were at all times
jealous of her development has forced
her to keep vigilant watcli and lo prepare for a fight should it be provoked
by her neighbors. Now the war has
come, abrupty and unexpectedly and
since it has come without any intelligent reason, merely because the Uu..-
siaus believed the time ripe for th_
crushing of their civilized neighbor,
the whole German nation has risen,
as one man, to fight for our Independence and our standing in tlie rank of
the great powers. There are no mere
parties in our empire;    the    Social-
democrats have, just as well BS (lit

Is safe to predict that our troops will

French? We have permitted them to
enter Into Alsace, just as we allowed
tho Russians to pass over our frontier

reason that the fact be established
that they, not the Germans, were the
aggressors in t'i!j disastrous international war. But in the meantime, wa

long visit the British coast and hunt
the British vessels, and the result Till
be that the fiction of the British
navy's supremacy will go to the dogs.

Herbert   Kaufman   Immortalizes   the
Patriotism of Simpson's Employee;
The following verses hy Herbert
Kaufman are published in the Loudon
Standard. They are inspired by tlie
announcement that a large proportion of the staff at Simpson's-in-the-
Stranc. have joined Lord Kitchener's
army. Simpson's is an old London
eating house which boasts distinctively English traditions extending from
1716, and is well known for Its adherence to the open roasting tire and
other time honored methods of English cookery.
Forty   Men   From   Simpson's
Forty men from Simpson's!
"Will you 'ave it rare?
Try a bit of pudding, sir;
Yes, the died lar's fair."
Forty men from Simpson's!
Quitting in n group,
Marching off In khaki for
To fix the Kaiser's soup.
Forty men from Simpson's!
"Will you take it 'ot?
'Ere's your Hell served in the sheli,
Piping from the pot!
Forty men from Simpson's!
Hurry, turn 'em loose.
They're the sort we need in front
To cook the German goose.
Forty men from Sampson's!
What a thing ,o read!
Forty humble  serving  men
.Serving Britain's need!
Forty men from Simpson's!
Don't you blush with shame
While they p_y '.he soldier's part,
And you the waiting game? i

Canning Factories Will Employ Mars
Canadian Help
Industrial conditions in Canada at
this time will result in the employment of many more Canadians than
usual in the canning factories of the
Dominion. In previous seasons many
canning factories, finding difficulty in
obtaining sufficient local help, secured assistance from the larger labor
market of tlie L'nited States. It ia estimated that several thousand employees of Canadian canning factories
during previous seasons were not pet-
manent residents of this country. In
view of tlie unemployment In some industries at this time the canning factories will be able to secure in Canada
most, if not all. the help they require
this season. Tims many Canadians
who would otherwise bo out of employment will have the work In the canning factories that in previous years
was given to parties who were resident In Canada only during the canning season. The policy of the leading canning companies has been to
employ local help as far as possible.
Another condition lhat will tend to
increase the number of Canadians employed in tbe canning industry In this
country is tlie curtailment of imports
of canned vegetables from France anil
Belgium. The imports of canned vegetables from these countries into Canada during tlie fiscal year ending
March 81, 1914, amounted to 0104,151
and $124,463, respectively���a total of
almost $300,000. The curtailment of
these imports will increase the demand for the products of Canadiaa
canning factories.
Jews' Freedom Affects World
Interviewed for the New _o_C
American, Henri Bergson said the war
has so upset Mtn that since its beginning he has been unable to concentrate his mind on his philosophy,
therefore has abandoned work alt.
"Things we thought ot before th*
war no longer mutter," he added,
"while things we never dreamt ot
now assume enormous Importance.1'
Asked about the Czar's attitude to
tie Jews, Bergson declared that If
the report were true this would bo
the greatest pacific revolution In hlf-
tory; Its affects would he Celt tho
world over.

Dear Sir,- On Thursda) af'.er-
loon the uth inst, Mr. Clinton
ind Mr. Rawfor.!, representing the
-ourtcnay Heat, Light and Power
Co. Ltd., upon the invitation of a
lumber cf local business men represented bv Missrs. Shepherd,
Crompton, Mclntyre, and Peterson
visite 1 Courtenay for the purpose
of discussing the practicability and
ways a id means of street lighting
of the business section at least,
during the coming winter months.
In view of the fact lhat incorporation is shortly to go into effect the
Ioc tl deputation took particular
pai is to impress upon Messrs.
Clin on and Sawford that they (the
local deputation) did not iu any
way presume to express the wishes
of the city nor to anticipate tlie
actions of the city council in the
_u':ter, put represented the titer-
ch nits interests only.
Afier considerable di��ctissiin Mr.
Clin on made tlie following propositi in:���
l'iie Electric Light Company will
intal any number of lights desired
U.) to twelve, (that being the nuin-
b:r in stock at present,) the lights
to be 350 K VV. (700 Caudle Power)
th ��� l'ght company to furnish all
lights and fixtures free of charge
the consumers however to be responsible for all breakages aud renewals, to guarantee a minimum of
lot lt'ss than one dollar per month
per light and to sign a contract for
1 period of one year, the power to
be furnished at a flat rate of 7 cents
per KW. hour, Burning an averse of seven hoursjper night, thirty
lays per month, each light would
:ost approximately five dollars per
We believe that at  the present |
ime four lights iu   the   business
���section are a "burning"  necessity,
placed about as follows:
One light at the corner of the
Cumberland Road, in front of the
13. C, Investments.
One light about opposite Brown's
Furniture Store.
One light on Dr Millard's corner
opposite the Riverside Hotel.
One light at the corner of Mill
Street, opposite McPhee & Morrison's,
Taking four lights at an average
cf 7 hours per night would cost
approximately twenty dollars per
We believe the offer of Mr.
Clinton's a very fair one aud would
strougly urge upon the business
men of the town a liberal subscription towards this cause, as no better
advertisement than well lighted
streets could be gotten for the same

D'ye Ken John French
(By a Victoria School Boy.)
Do you ken John French and his khaki
Hia belt and gaiters and stout brown boot
Along with his guns and his horse, and
his foot,
On the road to Berlin in the morning.
Ves we ken John French and old Joffre
And all his men to the tricolor true,
And Belgians and Russians, a jolly good
On the road to Berlin in the morning.
The Prussian Kaiser must be made to
The Prussian eagle must be made to feel,
Tlie force of the bullet and the go��d cold
On the road to Berlin in the morning,
For the mothers they slew, and the kids
as well,
And for sundry things it's not fit to tell,
We've got  to catch   'em and give   'em
On the road to Berlin in the morning.
