Keeping Horses Busy
A government investigation of operations on twenty-eight farms at Conway, Ark., disclosed the fact that except when Held work was very urgent
the horses were not worked more than
one-third of the time in good weather. For instance, last January there
were twenty-one days when the
ground wfr lit to plow and yet some
farmers did not turn a furrow. Tho
average amount of Held work done per
horse on the twenty-eight farms was
CO days during the month and the
average amount of otber work occupied 5,2 days. Three times as much
field work could just as well have
been done, and nearly twice ns much
work altogether might have beeu
Later on these farmers fell behind
with their work because of bad weather. One of them cut and hauled
wood In January at $1,20 per day for
himself and team, while more enterprising neighbors turned in wet, with
only half of the days lit for Held work.
This man was greatly delayed in getting in his crop. Some of these
twenty-eight farmers had to leave
part of their land idle this year he-
cause of the delay from rains late in
the spring. Those who plowed
early got their crops in on time, with
the work well done and the ground
all occupied.
A horse is paid whether it works
or not. The pay is included in the
interest on its Value, the amount of
depreciation and the cost of feed aud
care. This expenditure goes on daily
whether the horse is idle in the pasture or doing productive work. Whenever a farmer looks out over his pasture and sees some of his horses idle
there, he should ask himself why he
does not have them at work. In these
days of high-priced feed it pays to
keep only horses able to do a full
day's work day after day. Economy
demands further that the work must
be planned so as to keep them employed as steadily as possible. Then
it is not necessary to keep so many
horses.���Breeders' Gazette.

When the nerve force expended in
the day's work and in tlie act of living
is not replenished by restful sleep at

as physical bankruptcy stares you in

Tin: government is keeping a close
and consistent watch ou the food
prices 'throughout Canada and is in receipt of regular reports showing the
Generally speaking, there were naturally advances in the price of numerous commodities, but there have
been some cases where the rise bas
not beeu of a profitable character.
Since the government vested itself
with wide authority to deal with any
attempts at extortion, prices in certain lines and places have declined
somewhat. If there is any delermiend
move to unduly enhance tbe price of
the necessities of life, the situation
will be dealt with promptly and effectively. So far, however, the necessity
for rigid action bas not arisen.
How We Go to Sleep
Sleep begins i.i its first phase by a
state of distraction, which brings on
states of absentmindednoss, accompanied always by numerous and separate hallucinations, closely connected
with the length of the absontminded
states. Immediately afterwards, in a
second phase, these states of distraction pass into a very delicate motor
disturbance, due to tbe absence of
parallelism in the axes of thu eyes or
liy the deviation of their conjugate
movements, snys the Family Doctor.
Finally, in a third and final phase,
whicli indicates tho very near approach of actual sleep, the vasomotor
system seems to conform to laws very
different from those that regulate its
mechanism during waking hours.

rein of expression.

Conductors'  Punches Are  Registered
"The passenger on a railroad train
when he has his ticket punched probably does not know that the punch
mark used hy the conductor is one of
17,000 different designs," remarked
Frank E. Brown, an old time railroad
man. "On tlie big railroads there are
no two punches that have marks designed alike, and tlio interstate commerce commission liy examining the
punch mark can trace the ticket
punched to tlie conductor, train and
road upon which the ticket was given.
To get u punch a conductor has to
sign seven papers before it is deliv

The end justifies the means. Jieti
threatened, as the Germans affected
to suppose themsel.es threatened,
could think of nothing but how "to
hack their way through"���to hack
their way through, as they have been
hacking it bifore Liege, without a
thought for the seas of innocent blood
they are shedding in the quarrel
Which the German chancellor himself
croclatms to be unjust, observers of
German policy and students of Prussian history have long known that
these principles were cherished by
the heirs of the Fredericiivi tradition
They have scpn them Inculcated and
held up to admiration ln the works of
eminent professors and of distinguished military writers. They are familiar
with them in the essays and speeches
of the naval league and in the articles
of the Pan-German press. Thjy have
hehel.'. tho partial application o.' the
doctrine at Algeciras, at. Agadir, and
en innumerable lesser occasions. They
have expected for years to see them
adopted in some grand adventure. But
they did not expect to hear Herr Von
Bet'hmann Hollweg openly preach the
creed of Machiavelll in its utmost repulsive shape to the elected represcn-
tilives of tlie nation which boasts its
high culture and Its lofty ideals to
mankind.    .
It is not the outrages on all rights
whicli the Prasco-Germans have committed that surprise students of their
past; it is the ignorance and tha
stupidity with which they have set
about these outrrges. In every quarter���in Russia, ln Italy, In France, in
Belgium, and above all in tlie British
empire���they have displayed an incapacity to appreciate facts which
were, perfectly obvious, and which it
wns vital for' theni to grasp, that is
amazing. If we are to believe them,
they gave Austria-Hungary a free
hand in her dealings with Servia.
They were startled and shocked when
l_ey saw in the Austro-Hungarian
note the lirst result of the unac
customed liberty tbey. liad allowed
their ally. Nevertheless, they justified and supported her demands with
out realizing at lirst. that they were
jeopardizing the peace of Europe.
They thought that everybody was unready except Germany. They forgot
the strength of Russian Pan-Slav and
Pan-Orthodox passion. Russia had no
right to intervene, and the German
ambassador at Vienna doubted if she
would try. Neither she nor France
was ready, while Germany "know very
well what she was about." They ban

How Admiral Jellicoe Won and Lost a
Britain's admiral in the North Sea
bus hud exciting times iu  ills life.
When a lieutenant ou 11..M.S.
Monarch, a Glasgow steamer stranded oft Europu Point, on the Spanish
Coast, about llireo miles from Gibraltar.
The Monarch had left Gibraltar fur
target practice and had left all lier
boats but one small one behind. Seeing the almost hopeless position of
the Tuttriokdale's crew, the commander of the battleship called for vol
unteers, and Lieutenant Jellicoe and
i even seamen got into the small boat
and pulled for all they wore worth.
The boat could not live In the heavy
seas, however, and before they could
reach the wreck it capsized.
Fortunately each man liad donned
a cork Jacket before starting, and
after a terrible struggle in tho waves
all of them were washed ashore more
dead than alive. The crew of the
stranded ship was rescued by a
Spanish fishing boat, and tbe British
board of trado distributed rewards,
Lieutenant Jellicoe receiving a medal,
which he was destined to lose.
He was commander of M.ll.S. Victoria when she was-rainmed in 1893
by Uie Camperdown. At the time
of the disaster, Commander Jellicoe
was down with a sharp attack of fever. Startled hy the terrific, crash as
the two great ships came together,
the invalid struggled from his bunk
and staggered up on deck, clad only
in pyjamas.
Commander Jellicoe stood on the
bridge, the flags in his hands ready
for signals, when suddenly, with a
wild plunge, the enormous vessel
buried her bow beneath the surface
of the sea. Most of those on deck
were thrown into the sea, and then
followed.a scene that those who saw
it would willingly forget.
The Victoria's keel was high in
tlie air, her twin-sere* propellers
racing madly. Gradually as the vessel sank, tlie screws came down lower and lower towards the mass of
men struggling in the water. At last
the great steel flanges, still whirling,
sank into the waves, and several
hundred men were literally torn to
J....C8 in the maelstrom.
Commander Jellicoe was too wea.:
with fever to do much to save himself, and had it not been for a young
midshipman, who helped him to
struggle away from the sinking ship,
it is unlikely that he would have been
amongst the survivors.
His board of trade medal went
down with the rest of his property,
and when he applied for a duplicate
the hoard informed him that he
would have to pay for it.
Admiral Jellicoe accompanied Admiral Seymour on his march to relieve the Legations at Pekin during the Boxer rebellion.
Surrounded on all hands, tlie allied troops decided to retreat to Tientsin. On tlie way they sighted a large
body of cavalry, and, mistaking they
stood out in tho open and signalled
They found out tlieir mista e when
the cavalry opened lire.
ln the melee tha! followed Captain
e'.licoe, charging at the head of his
m-m, was shot through the lung. His
wound was dangerous eonugh, but it
,.ws made much worse by the next
five days' retreat to Tienstln, liar
assed by the enemy most of the
But even from this, perhaps tlie
narrowest of his escapes, the Admiral
managed to pull through and lived
to command the empire's greatest
lleet In the greatest war in history.

it will be remembered that In t90o
Germany was perfectly   willing   to
barter a foreign colony In exchange,
for Heligoland, the tiny Island ifl the
North Sea, then owned by Great
. ritaln,
Togoland wus Important to the
British empire for two-reasons. It
has tlie largest wireless telegraphic
station In the whole world, and afforded the means of keeping tlig
German fleet in Atlantic waters in
touch with the home offices, and
With other colonies. And the foreign
commerce of its 1,500,000 inhabitants
is Important, exports amounting to
over $2,000,000 per annum, and Imports to about J2.500.00-, Cotton is
being grown with very promising results, and altogether its possession
will comfortably round out our Gold
Coast colony, which has been Incommoded many times liy its troublesome neighbors. Under British rule
its trade importance will speedily increase, and the arilway system, already inaugurated, will no doubt bo
continued throughout the great agricultural districts, as yet mostly undeveloped.

Women and War
"It is significant that in all of
these countries which have declared
war, women have not yet been enfranchised. To be sure, if they had
the vote, they could not stop war all
at once, hut they would in time, in
many nations, as in England, when
there are a million more women than
men, the chief argument against
'Votes for Women' is that they would
tend to weaken military prowess!
"Women have long since passed
that stage where they considered it a
glorious tiling to bring sons into the
world that they might grow up to
sacrifice tlieir lire for the'r country
in warfare. However you put it, war

Prosperity is Communistic
A man cannot prosper in any honest
businass without benefiting the community as well as himself, for lie cannot induce men to deal with him without offering them an advantage; ami,
taking all the transactions of life together Hie advantages whicli men offer
to others must, on tlie whole, be equal
to those which they receive themselves. Doing business, therefore, is a
very effectual and extended mode ot

men of any community, and you
would find a difficulty in pointing
to a dozen who either directly or
indirectly could benefit in a financial
way by the war in which their
country might become involved,
while hundreds would be certain
to suffer loss. The chief weight of
money must always be against war.

Long years ago the "Thiry Years
War" reduced Germany to Cannibalism- The old and crippled were
killed and eaten. Tough grub,
but there was nothing else, Nuns,
widows, and girls were seized and
distributed like cattle, Every soldier was ordered to take two wives
because the country had to be re-
populated , No bull con about this.

A very large gathering attended
the meeting called by Mr, Fechner
to protest against the immediate
incorporation of Courtenav. There
was considerable difficulty in securing a chairman, both Dr. Millard and Colin Campbell declining
Finally Mr. Fechner consented, and
in answer to a question, said he
was responsible for getting the
notices out. He then called upon
Mr. McPhee for some remarks.
Mr. McPhee said he had nothing
to say, he was satisfied with incorporation. After another period of
waiting during which none of the
promoters of the meeting had anything to say. Mr. Mclntyre moved
that the meeting adjourn, which
was promptly seconded. Dr, Millard said that as there were so
many electors gathered together,
they might turn the meeting into
a discussion for. some way to profit
the city, but no one would wait.
The farmers of the valley held-a
meeting in the Board of Trade
rooms last Saturday week, to discuss the advisability of bringing a
number of dairy cows into the valley.     This seems  to us to be a
good scheme. In any rural district
wherever the dairy industry
flourishes the farmers are always
prosperous and contented. The
same should apply here. There's
an unlimited market for all the
milk that can be produced in the
valley, right here in Courtenay. A
number of the farmers cannot
handle any more cows, but at the
meeting it was found that ten more
cows could be taken. Then there
are a number of idle ranches where
a lot of cows could be put on if
proper arrangements were made.
The question of financing the proposition has been solved, and it
is now up to the farmers themselves
to decide at the . eeting Saturday
afternoon what they will do.

A London dispatch yesterday
states that the last ten day's fighting in West Flanders has completely

Northwestern France, Oct. 27:���
Lust week the Germans gained
the shortest victory of the war to
date. In the neighbourhood of
Lille they massed strong forces behind a slight elevation aud suddenly poured iuto nearby British
trenches an irresistible fire. Despite a rain of fire from heavy guns,
maxims aud rifles, their huge
oolumns, by sheer weight ot numbers, reached the trenches aud
turned onr fellows out, The Germans followed up their advantage,
pursuing the "Tommies" and
cheering and singing as they came.
All went well until tne/ met the
British reservists, who happened to
be Indian troops. For a moment
there was a wild scrimmage.
The Sikhs and Ghurkas gave the
enemy a few rounds in rapid succession and then swung into them
with the utmost fervor.
Back past our deserted trenches
and through the German line of
trenches went the gray coated
Tuetons, while Sikh and Ghurka
played havoc in their disordered
ranks. Never has there been any
such slaughter on any field.
Twenty thousand dead and
wounded Germans, nearly half of
the attacking force, lav along their
line of retreat, according to the
computation of a staff officer. Our
losses did not rxceed two thousand.
At Ypres an unsuccessful attack
resulted in casualities of 3,000. At
La Basee they are apparently doing
somewhat better. Their masses of
infantry with heavy artillery seem!
at present to be slowly advanding
inlthis region. Their progress is
by no means alarming and can be
firmly held should it become dangerous.
The heavy punishment inflicted
upou the German troops in the
last few days .as raised the hopes
of everyone to a high point. An
officer who flew over the enemy's
lines this morning says that the
Germans now advance to the attack
shouting like Dervishes.
The British are unpreturbed by
this noisy demonstration and
and wait until they come within a
few hundred yards range and then
give them fifteen rounds, and then
it was all over, but the German
artillery fire is still very good,
The Germans sent a quarter of a
million men against the British
formation at Ypres for four days.
They were defeated, and all that
were not killed were chased 15
The rebels in South Africa under
Gen, Beyers, have been severely
defeated by Gen. Botha.
The Germans admit defeat in
Poland, according to an official announcement issued in Berlin yesterday.
A Paris despatch yesterday, says
the Allies have had real success
along the line from Nieuport to

So little Barbara, quite unsuspiciously, went, upstairs, and entered the
small parlor which Mrs. Russell hud for
her private use; where, indeed, she
seldom sat, excepi on Sundays, when
she hul company, and had u lire lit ln
Hie room. There wus uo lire there
now bul Hannah had turned on Ihe
gas.    Barbara burst open the door.
"Oli! Ann. dear! I hope there Is
nothing the matter���" began the child,
and then she stopped and turned deadly white.
"Yes, my dear, we have found you
out," snid Mr, Parkes, coming over
mul taking her little hand; "we have
found you out, nnd we don'l mean to

Barbara bnrsl inlo tears, "Oh!

Dean Chance.
"SII down, Bnrban ui we will lell
ynu tho whole story," thev said.
With great difficulty Barbara recovered her self-possession. She sunk
inlo u chair, and the two elderly gen-
men brought chairs forward and sat
close to her. They both looked so
kind, so benevolent, so like the sort
of people she was accustomed to, that,
In spite of her fears, her heart warmed towards them,
"Vou know," Bhe snid after a time,
"that whatever you may tell me, you

"ll wus ull owing to Mrs. liussell, tlie

"Oli." under lier breath and covered
her face with  lier little hands.
"Barbara, you know, of course, and

"I um sure sue won't, accept u penny, and 1 um paying her myself," suld
"Well,   we'll '  see   to   that."
"Here she is!" said Barbara,
The click of the latch key was heard
in the door. Barbara run to the hall,
Mrs. Russell, with a high color in her
cheeks���for the night was bitterly
cold���wus undoing her bugle-laden
mantle and unlying Iter bonnet-
"Hour heart!" she said, when she
looked ut Barbara, "1 do 'ope there's

"I've boon found out," suid Barbara.
She oluspod the. good woman's hand,
"Don't, don'l lot me leave you. I
want, to stay with you. Two gentlemen have called, and one of them
has offered mo a, home."
"Two gentlemen, and one bus offe.-

"And ain't ynu the darling of my
life?" said Airs. Russell, kissing the
girl; "but. now we'll just go in together and heard Ihe lions in llieir don."
Accordingly; Airs. Russell, slipping
off her mantle nnd revealing lier extremely buxom form, wont into the
little parlor. Both Sunningley and
Parkes rose when she did so. Parkes
was younger than Sunningley���Sunningley must buve been nbout sixty-
seven years of age; his hair was snow-
white. He had tlie most benevolent
blue eyes in Hie world. Parkes was
darker and at, least, ten years younger, but. both looked what they were
���kind-hearted, good men. Mrs. Kussell, whon talking about it afterwards,
said: "She" always knew a gentlemen
on the spot; it. does not take me half
a wink to know the quality." She bobbed a courtesy to each of lhe two gentlemen, then said:
"You'll excuse me, sirs. I am a bit
puffed, having had to walk rather
fast, but I understand you have come
to see my dear little' Miss Barbara
(" ance?"
"Wo buve, madam, iind    wo have

you from tlie bottom of our hearts for
what you have done for her."

Conservation of Food Supplies
Kilwood, Hie American sociologist,
bus declared thai "tlio doubling of the
price of bread in uny civilized country
would lie ii far greater calamity than
a rent war "
Sven a slight rise in tlie price of
foodstuffs brings lurge numbers in
the industrial nations to the verge of
famine. The world is now in the
throes of the one calamity���war; it
is devoutly to be hoped that tlie second���the doubling of the pri .; of bread,
may be avoided. Conservation of the
world's food supplies is now more
than ever an absolute necessity. And
again let it lie said thnt conservation
means a careful utilizing, not merely
selfish hoarding, it stands for prin
ciples which are the antithesis of
those that are usually adhered to during a state of war.
Outline ot the Ideals and Methods of
the  Movements,  by  William
Shaw, LL D.
The fundamental difference between
tlie Ideals and methods of tho Christian Endeavor movement and those of
tlie  organizations  that  had  preceded
it was in tbo emphasis placed upon
tha element of religious obligation,
and lho definite character of its com:
mlttoe work. It made duty its keynote, not feeling or iiinuseinent. The
prayer-meeting wns its heart, with the
spiritual dynamic to inspire and energize all its Individual and committee
Before the famous aphorism of tho
psychologist, "No impression without
expression," liad been applied to religion, the young people's movement
had demonstrated It, Tho society became the manual training school of
Ihe church, where lhe young disciples
learned bow to speak by speaking, and
hnw  In work by  working.
ll is safe to Bay thai il has largely
helped to transform lhe attitude of the
ohuroh toward tlio young disciples.
Tbe church now Hint is not actively
Interested In the training of Its young
people is a curiosity. II has ulso
changed tlie attitude of the young people toward the church. No lunger do
they hold aloof and camp on the outer
edge ;they nro in Hie heart of things.
it bus broadened their conception of
the religious life, and Instead of placing   tb   emphasis   upon being saved,
tlieir motto  is, "Saved  In servo."
It bus placed the young people at
tlie front, in all movements for temperance, civic righteousness und moral
reform and to their leadership was
largely due the nation-wide Interest In
such campaigns as tlie "Go-to-Church-
Sunday," and the "Salounless Nation
by  1920."
It lias given to the young people a
now vision of the churches' obligation
to obey the great commission, "Co

plans for the great and successful educational campaign for missions, carried ou by the Young People's Interdenominational Missionary Movement,
now the Missionary Education Movement, were prepared by Amos R. Wells
and Earl Taylor, leaders in Christian
Endeavor and tbo Epwortb League;
and tlie young people's societies have
also furnished the Held and the force
to carry out these plans.
The best available statistics would
indicate an enrollment of approximately 11,000 young people's societies and
4,000,000 members in North America.
The societies are organized upon tlie
broadest possible basis of service, and
engage in an infinite variety of ac-
tivies. These might be grouped as
The Prayer Meeting, with its training in expression of religious truth
and experience, and cultivation of the
devotional spirit.
The Quiet Hour and Morning
Watch, for Hie deepening of tho personal religious life.
The Study Classes, for missions, the
Bible, civics, church doctrine, personal work, etc.
Heading Courses, christian Culture
Courses, and literary evenings for the
broadening of the intellectual life.
The Social Work, for the promotion
ot real recreation.
The Departments and Committees,
\,' li tlieir definite training.
Unions and Conventions, with tlieir
practical training in co-operative effort.
Christian Citizenship, with its emphasis upon temperance, civic righteousness and world-peace, giving to
our future citizens a knowledge of
public affairs and training in social
service, enlisting them in all legitimate ways for the election of good
and efficient office holders, for the observance of existing laws, for tlie
adoption of improved laws, for the improvement of tlio conditions of labor,
and the rational use of the Lord's Day
for rest aud worship; the opening of
robms for reading and recreation, the
establishment of gymnasims and athletic fields, the promotion of clubs for
the special study of town and municipal conditions, with addresses by the
heads of departments.
Boys' Clubs or groups under the leadership of lho virile young men to lead
tlio boys in their s;>orts and athletics,
and by the contagion of character to
give theni a vision of Hie larger life of
Christian service.
High School Societies, and organizations in preparatory schools and

War Duty on Coffee
Tlie new Canadian tariff makes a
considerable addition to the duty
upon, and the consequent cost of
coffee. In Great Britain tea is the
favorite war tax bearer, though sugar has generally liad to bear a share
of tlie burden.
The berry is really a luxury and
might well be taxed, along with tobacco, spirituous and malt liquors.
In fact, the custom of coffee-drink-
ins is relatively recent among the
peoples of Europe and their descend-
atns lu America. For a long time
after it made its way west from
Arabia and Turkey coffee was under,
tlie ban of the church, It was not
until 1052 that the lirst house that
made a specialty of serving coffee
was opened in London: a little later
it was introduced into Franco.
Thence the practice lias spread until the amount now consumed the
world over is enormous. At first
coffee camo only from Northern Africa, Arabia and Turkey; then the
Dutch began experimenting, and succeeded in cultivating it in Java, and
tlie French in the West Indies.
The story goes that in 17611 a Portuguese, Joao Alberta Castello Bran-
co, planted a bush in Dio de Janeiro.
Thanks to the pecitlarity favorable
soil and climate, Brazil soon outstripped all other lands in the production of coffee. The uplands of
the state of Soa Paulo produce more
than half of all the enormous amount
of coffee that is consumed iu the
world today. There are between
15,000 and 20,000 plantations, employing hundreds of thousands of laborers, and some ot the plantations
are so vast that they grow millions
of trees. No more beautiful sight
could be imagined than one of these
plantations in full bloom. The flowers are white and grow in clusters,
and the air is fragrant witli their
Brazil has a "valorization" scheme
which artificially keeps up the price
of coffee. Hence if that country
wishes to meet tlie war tax and keep
up the use of the product, it can
easily do so through its scheme,
which is already taxing us all for the
sake of tlie South American republic.

tho whole empire to lliii side of the

When a simple change of diet
brings back health and happiness tlie
story is briefly told,   A lady writes:
"After being afflicted for years with
nervousness and heart trouble, I received a shock four years ago that left
me in such a condition that my life
was despaired of.
"I gut. no relief from doctors nor
from the numberless heart nnd nerve
remedies I tried, becausi I didn't
know that coffee was dully putting
me back more than tho doctors could
put mo ahead." (Tea, also, la harmful,
because It contains the same poison*
oils drug, caffeine,  found  in coffee).
"Finally nl the suggestion of a,
friend I left off coffee and began the
use of Postum, and against my expectations l gradually improved in health
until for tlie past 6 or 8 months I
have been entirely free from nervousness and those terrible sinking, weakening spells of heart trouble.
"My troubles all came from the use
of coffee which I had drunk from
childhood und yet they disappeared
when 1 quit coffee and took up tbe
uso of Postum." Name given by Canadian Postum Co., Windsor, Ont.
Many people marvel at the effects
of leaving off tea and coffee and drinking Postum, but there is nothing marvelous about it���only common sense.
Tea and coffee are destroyers���Postum is a rebuilder. That's tlie reason.
Look in pkgs. for the famous little
book, "The Road to Wellvllle."
Postum comes in two forms:
Regular Postum���must be well boiled.    15c and 25c packages.
Instant Postum���is a soluble powder. A teaspoonful dissolves quickly
in a cup of hot water and, with cream
and sugar, makes a delicious beverage
instantly.   "0e nnd 50c tins.
The cost per cup of bolh kinds ia
about the same.
"There's a lteason" for Postum.

As plain the world can see.

1 have beeu told some days ago
That on the Anderton place
Mike Mattiuda, by a deer
For his life had au awful chase.
It happened iu the evening
A little after night
While looking for some colts
By a lanterns misty light.
The deer in the field was feeding
As before it oft had done
And thought that Mike looked easy
As he did not have a gun,
So it made a charge at Chuda
And landed an awful crack,
So Chuda knew his only hope
Was to spring upon its back.
Then he mounted like a Couger
And with his pocket knife,
Only after a beastly struggle
Succeeded to take its life.
He told the tale to G. and C.
Who did not believe 'twas done
He said, if you don't believe ir
Go ask Joe Anderton.
Mike seems to have the best of luck
With everything he do
Though a noted story teller
This one is realy true.

Again British Territory
Lovers of literature have the consolation of knowing that the remains of the greatest modern romantic novelist, Robert Louis
Stevenson, sleep once more on
British soil. Samoa was British
territory when he was laid to rest
on Mount Apia. It was sold to
Germany afterward, and the fortunes of war have restored it to the
Empire that gaye birth to Tusitala.
What the War Costs Holland
That neutral nations are not unaffected by the war is seen in the
case of the little Kingdom of Holland. She has become a clearinghouse for telegrams and letters
which cannot pass direct from
England to Germany, and a common meeting ground for German
or Belgian soldiers flying from
enemies. A "consecration camp"
has been formed at Alkmaar, and
holds men from both armies. The
possibility of an explosion occuring
which might lead to international
complications has compelled Holland to mobolize her army of 400,-
000 men, and all over Holland men
and women are being turned out of
doors and their homes pulled down
because they happened to interfere
with the range of the guns of the
forts. At all costs Holland is determined to preserve her independence, and it is said that her people
never grumble at the sacrifices they
are called upon to make, and as in
the long ago they are ready even
to summon their old ally, the sea,
to help them maintain their freedom. Evidently the old Dutch
spirit is still alive in these sturdy
sons of the men who won immortal
fame by their bold defiance of the
Spanish power when it was at the
height of its glory, and whom
Spain could not cow 1 or subdue,
