"J secured tlie bracelot, broocii and
ring, and left llie room. I weni iu
Uie officers ot Police and mid them
that those had been found hy my
wife the previous evening. An officer
asked me one or two leading Questions, I stated thai bIIq had found
t li cm and thai we wore anxious tbey
should  be  returned  to the  rightful
owners.   The mail said lhat llO WOUld
endeavor t<> llnd them, and would advertise; 1 desired him to do sn at my
"When 1 returned to the hotel,
Clementina was out; she did not return until late lhat evening. When
she came In she was staggering, and
I saw that she must have been at
some place of entertainment which
she ought not to have none to, and
had taken more chanpagne than was
good l'or her. There was a certain
Count Antonio I.nzzi, who had often
stared at my beautiful wife and paid
her attentions. She told me that it
was with him she had gone to the restaurant.
" 'How could I stay here alone?' she
said, 'when you were so bold us to
leave ine?'���and she burst into llts of
hysterical laughter. I was in miser)'
about her, 1 hardly knew what to iiu,
I determined to take her from
Naples the following day; but on that
very evening, at m'dniglit, what was
my horror to find that the police had
arrived with a warrant to arrest my
wife. Her person was searched nnd
Bho was found laden with jewels,
precious stones, and even money,
which she must have managed to take
with that fatal sleight-of-hand which
she possessed. She was calm and
cool, not tho least surprised at being
arrested. The police would not listen
to a word from me, hut took her off
immediately to prison.
"That was the beginning of my dark
and miserable life. There was my
Ilttlo child at home, there was the
lovely rectory where I lived, and
where no one, as yet, suspected Mrs.
Chance of doing much wrong. What
was I to do'.' 1 did my utmost t_ have
my wife's sentence averted; but the
Italian laws arc very severe, and she
was sentenced lo prison, with hard
labor, for three years. After her sentence was pronounced sho sent for
me.   She said:
"'Humphrey, 1 wish to make a proposal. I am punished for my sins,
but I don't wish you or our cliild to
be made wretched. For threo years I
have got to live through the miseries
of an Italian prison. At the end of
that time, 1 shall he free, but I don't
wish to come back to you, Humphrey,
I don't lovo you. I only married you
In a lit of despair; you don't suit me.
Let me lead my own life. I nm entitled to thirty pounds a year; add to
that one hundred pounds yearly, and 1
will promise, when I leave prison, to
stay out of Kngland and never to
molest you or your child. I wish you
to spread the report that I am dead!
I have died to the world. Who could
be alive who was sentenced to an
Italian prison? It will be best for
you; you have got to think of your
own life and of cur child. Do it,
Humphrey, and if you send me the
money regularly after I am released
from prison I will not torment you
again. But I must have it for my life
time, don't forget.'
"I yielded to her wishes at last; it
seemed tho best thing to do, but it
was a coward's remedy. I caused an
advertisement to be inserted ia the
English papers to the effect that my
young wife had died of malarial fever.
The prison authorities did not trouble
themselves In the least about the
matter; she was only just a woman
in prison. Nobody in Naples diseov-
��red my .jecret���at least as far as I
am aware. I came home a supposed
widower, and have lived for nearly
twenty years with my child, my
darling���she has been as the pearl
ot my heart. I want my child never
to know tiiis terrible story about my
wife; bul the money whicli I can give
Mrs. Chance during my lifetime will
naturally full at my death, and death
is near, for lhe doctors say my heart
is affected and I haven't long to live.
I therefore beseech of you, dear
friends, to keep tho truth'from little
Barbara, and as you are well off, be
merciful, and ask Dean Chance to be
merlcful  to my  Innocent Ahild."
Here followed certain technical directions with regard to the sending of
tho money to the General Post Office.
The letter ended���"Your broken-hearted friend, Humphrey Chance."
There was a dead silence after
Sunningley had finished reading this
letter. The face of young Osborne
was ghastly; presently he took out
his handkerchief and wiped the moisture from his forehead.
"I don't think I ever heard a more
dreadful story," he said.
"But," said Sunningley, springing
lo his feet, and facing the young
man, "what does the story matter? It
is horrible. I tell you I have lived
with It as a nightmare ever since 1
read that letter, but what Is It compared with the fact that that woman
���that woman has got hold of the
child, our child, our darling! The one
who turned my life into heaven!
Ralph, What is to be done?"
"Dear  old   friend, we  must    find

Shook���"you know ihat 1 feel for her.
1 would lay down my own life for
"Oh, what is to be done'.''' murmured poor Mr. Sunningley.
Towards the evening of thai same
duy, Sunningley went back lo his lonely rooms, and Kalph accompanied
him. For the fact was, he could
scarcely hear the young man oul of
liis sight. Mrs. Gray appeared, her
eyes.red wllh the tears she had shea,
saying that a man had called nnd
wished lo speak to Mr. Sunningley
The old man jumped up with u
momentary gleam of hope.
"Show hlni in here, Mrs. Gray," lie
A moment later, tlie private detective who bad been employed by
Ralph Osborne entered the room, llu
was ii little, dark mnn, almost Spanish iu appearance; he had bright
black eyes and a neatly trimmed heard
and moustache, and wus dressed us
nn ordinary Englishman in a dark
blue suit. Ile spoke iu B quiet, rest ruined voice, und tl.e moment Sunningley saw him he felt confidence in
"I want to te.' ynu, sir, whal 1 have
done with regard to the young lady."
"Oh! Is that all? I had hoped you
had got some news of her."
"I have got no direct news, sir;
but at the same time I am nol without
a certain amount of information. Immediately al'to,' Mr. Osborne left me
today 1 thoitjiit carefully over the
case; I felt sure thut the object of
kidnapping tlie young lady wns black-
nnd that we should soon know
something about it. 1 accordingly,
had put up In several shops along
Victoria street a notice than a young
lady was missing and that anyone
who gave Information about her that
would lead tj her recovery would be
���nely ;ewarded."
"Well," said Osborne.
"I had, of course, to pay the shopkeepers to allow these advertisements
to be put In all their windows. I also
Intended to put similar advertisements i* till the halfpenny papers,
the Polite News, etc., and in those
sort of yapers which might get into
the hands of a woman . uch as you,
Mr. Osborne, have described. About
five o'clock today, as 1 was sitting in
my oMice, a young man, shabbily
dressed, with red hair, a thin face,
a slight cast In one eye, and a broken
toot/i In front which gave him a singularly disagreeable expression, called
to see me.' I asked hi. name. He
vas, I could see, a young man of a
_sry low down class. He fidgeted in
liis chair, and presently said, looking
up at me:
" 'Well, it's that ad. of yours.'
"'Have you any news?' I asked.
"He took a dirty handkerchief from
his pocket and wiped his face.
" 'I'm clemmed with hunger,' ho
"'Have you any news?' I remarked.
'If you haven't news, you're not warned here.'
" 'Have patience with a feller,
guv'nor. I can't do anything until 1
have a bit of a meal,' he wailed.
" 'And I won't give you any meal
until you tell me what you have come
"'Well, sir, it's this: you want the
young lady?'
" T do. And if you know where she
is, you will be arrested at onco until
you give us all the information in
your power.'
" 'Not me,' he said, jumping up as
he spoke; he trembled slightly and
put the table between myself and
him,    'Not me, nothing of that sort.
y name Is Bob Fllcit, and I know who
has charge of the young lidy, and if
you will give mo twenty pounds, you
shall see her 'ome this wery blessed
night. That's all I can say, and Bob
Flick's a good sort. You'd best give
me the twenty pounds, and I'll have
her back with you.'
"I turned him out as quickly as I
could, not being able to get any information of value. Thus, you see for
yourselves, gentlemen, 1 was right in
not going too far in the matter of
offering a reward for the young lady.
I shall have, probably, hundreds of
Bob Flicks and fellows of that calibre
coming to see me and offering to do
their best to get the girl back. But
no one will get u halfpenny from me,
unless I am taken straight to the girl
herself. Then I don't mind what 1
".Money is not of the slightest consequence," suld Sunningley.
"Not of the slightest -not of the
slightest," echoed Osborne.
"Well, then, that being tho case, 1
know how lo work. Xow, Mr. Sunningley, will you give me an exact
description of Miss llai'hara Chance?
Have you, I mean, a picture of her?"
Sunningley rose and picked up a
photograph of Barbara, taken, unfortunately, several years ago, when sho
was quite a little cliild, before she
had put up her hair.
"She is like this still," he said.
"Hut, of course, she Is now grown np.
But she has the same sweet face."
Herbert Newte, the detective, instantly slipped tho photograph Into
his pocket.
"I cannot part with it," said Sunningley.
"I think, sir, you had best let me
have it. I must have something to
go on. Had tlie young lady any murk,
or anything that might lead to her
Identification? You must realize that
. ��� have (o deal with a very dangerous
woman, who has been waiting for this.
She will bide her time and will not
part with the child until she has got
all she wants out of her."
"Don't you think, Mr. Sunningley,"
interrupted Osborne, "that it would
be only right for Mr. Newte to be told
the contents of Mr. Chance's last
Sunningley shuddered for a moment. "It would be very painful,"
he said.
"Oh! If there Is anything in the let
ter that can help, you ought to tell
me, for I can assure you Ihu case is
very serious. I have sent messeng
era down to every port lo watch Ihe
bonis as Ihey go out; uiy fear is that
Ihe girl will be taken abroad almost
"Hood heavens!" exclaimed
niugley. "Y.'s, of course, yon
read tin- loiter."
Ile handed  it to the detective,
rend it slowly aud carefully.
"That   woman   must   have    been  a
I thorough   bad   one,"   lie   said.    "It's
I easy lo Ik   seen.       am beginning to
j gel, a  light  on the matter.    It is my
impression that she is wanted by the
| police,     li   is   very  strongly  my   impression,    sir,   ;   am   delighted  you
have   shown   me   this   letter;   I   shall
now   know  much   better  how  to  proceed.    Mr.   Osborne  never    saw   the
woman.     Did   anyone   iu   Ihis   llOUSU
seo her'.'"
"Yes," replied Siinningley; "my
housekeeper, Mrs. Ciray."
"Can 1 speak wit'i Mrs. Grey, sir?
should like to see her quite alone,
Believe nie, thnt is best peopl
ways unburden themselves more fully when Ihere is no one watching
Accordingly, Newte was shown inlo
a small room, and Mrs. Cray weni to
him there. Tlie moment she saw llie
detective she fell ou her knees and
hurst iuto a passion ol' weeping.
"Now, my good woman, whal is tlie
use of that'.'" was Newte's remark.
"It won't help you to nu 1 tlie young
lady; tlicre isn't the least doubt thai
she is in gnat danger, hut yon will
not Iind her hy crying your eyes out.
I understand from Mr. Sunningley
tlial you once saw the woman who bus
kidnapped Miss Chance; now, -I want
you to give me uccurnte account ol
her apepnrance,  where  you saw  her,
and when.    Please lell n verylhing.
On my perfect knowledgi of lhe case,
the recovery of the girl depends."
Mrs. Cray wiped lier eyes and stood
up. "I felt in my bones that, she was
a bud lot," she said. "Little Miss
Barbara was not with us more than
a day. Sho was living before she

Herbert Newte took a note book
from his pocket, and hastily wrote
down   full  particulars.

Hungarians Not Huns
Magyars Are Dominant Race of Country on Whose Plains . .ttila Set
Up His Capital
Hungary seems tc have derived its
name from the Huns, for, says the Victoria Colonist, it was on its plans
that Attila set up his capital; but the
Hungarians are not Huns. It is hardly
possible that there can be no trace
n Hunnlsh stocK in tlie various peoples who go to make up the population of this monarchy and its tributary
provinces but the dominant race is
ihe Magyar, which is of Asiatic origin,
but camo out of that continent more
than five centuries after the Huns appeared on the steppe., of Russia.
They now number about ten million.
They have Intermingled   with   their
neighbors of Slavonic origin, and there
is much sympathy between them; but
the attitude toward the Germans has
always been hostile and now is so. The
Magyars are chiefly Roman Catholics, |
but even this does not create a bond I
of sympathy with the Roman Catholics of South Germany any moro than
the Protestantism  of many of them |
makes them favorably disposed to the i
Protestants of Nortn Germany.    The
fact Is that the Magyars cherish certain ancient Ideals   whicli  set them
apart from the other peoples of Europe, except the Slavs.
Their groat ideal is Independence,
not of themselves as a race oaly, but
of themselves as individuals. They tolerate Austrian domination, but continually resent its existence. They would
have thrown it off long ago if they
could have been sure of remaining
free. It is said that they regard the
Austrian emperor, who is also their
king, as an interloper, a stranger from
Vienna, whose comings anu goings
concern theni only to a very slight degree.
Tlie Magyar nobles regard themselves as infinitely superior to any
German potentate and the Hnpsburgs
are Gorman. It may be worth recalling here (hat tho Austrian ruler was
the German emperor until the early
part of the last century, Prussia was ,
not then regarded as a part of Germany except geographically. I
The attitude of tlie Magyars toward
tho Germans is one of the factors that I
must be taken Into account when the)
map of Europe is re-arranged.
The White General
A legend is going the rounds of
the Russian army of a general in
white uniform who rides through tlie
ranks mounted on a white lrrse. if
this "White General," as the soldiers
call him, looks a soldier full in the
face the soldier thereafti ��� bears a
charmed life, while those whom the
"White General" passes by with his
eyes averted are marked for death.
The "White General" has not been
seen among the Russian troops, the
soldiers say, for some time now, and
the men In the ranks explain that he

ganization In War Time
When on tho declaration of war Hi.
Canadian government was asked by
the imperial government to supervise
'.he purchase and transpo , of com-
nissariat   supplies    which    Canada
COUld provide I' >r llie expeditionary
force in Franco, the Hon. Ilobl. Rogers, minister of bhe works, was
the minister selected to in_o charge
of this responsible work. It wns obvious to so practical a man as Mr.
Rogers that the hai dllng of such large
orders ub were in sight must he done
! y experienced Irai sport officials, and,
among others, lie consulted Sir Thos.
Shaiiglmcssy, president of the Canadian Pacific Hallway. Sir Thomas considered il a patriotic duty to place at
Mr. Rogers' disposal, without cost to
the Canadian government, the services
of Mr. A. II. Harris, special traffic
representative of the C.P.R., together
witli such of the company's staff js
Mr. Harris might select for purpose :f
administration. As this staff eventually numbered nearly twenty .picked
men, the value of the offer was considerable, and lis acceptance by the
Canadian government had given the
British war office an efficient service
and saved a large sum of money. Owing to Mr. Harris' initiative and untiring energy, aideil by an efficient
and loyal staff, a phenomenal tonnage
has been moved to the seaboard and
thence overseas to French ports of
The value of expert handling was
demonstrated by tne prompt chartering of vessels on a minimum charter
rate, enabling the administration to
maintain an average freight on oats
during the past three mouths of 25
cents per hundred pounds, and $7.5u
per gross ton on hay. Although, owing to the scarcity of tounage, freight
rates have risen rapidly since September, Ilve vessels have cleared from
Montreal for a French port during tlie
past ten days, the charter parties
averaging 28 cents per 10(1 lbs. on oats
and JS on hay, a saving of close on 50
per cent, nn current commercial rates.
In addition to this the C.P.R. has
made no charge for use of its docks by
the chartered vessels and has warehoused everything free���being helped
in this generous trout ment by the Allan Line, which also placed portions
of its sheds at the disposal of the
government. Over 600,000 sacks have
been stored in and passed through
C.P.R. sheds, and in addition, vast
quantities of. acked oats were piled in
the upper sections of the C.P.R. dock
warehouses and subsequently loaded
Into chartered vessels consigned to
French ports of call.
The Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta
governments received the same generous treatment In connection with the
forwarding of their gifts.
The shipments handled by this administration under Mr. Harris' supervision September 1st to date, including flour, war office supplies, and

The War and Forest Products
The pulp and paper industry in
Canada will profit greatly from the
war situation. An increasing demand
for Canadian supplies is already noted,
due to the general stoppage of EuroP'
ean supplies. It ls probable, also,
that a market will be developed for a
large amount of small sized timber, to
be used aa pit props in the mining
of coal in the British Isles. The usual
supplies from the Scandinavian countries are, at least temporarily, cut oft
to a considearble extent. Eastern
Canada has vast quantities of timber
suitable for mining purposes, and the
securing of this market would mean a
yery large development. On the other
hand, the demand for lumber and
building materials has fallen off seriously, on account of the general cessation of building operations.
British Sapper Tells of Influence' et

a letter from Sapper George Comber,
of iho Royal Engineers, published lu
the London Daily Telegraph, tends to

Comber says:
"Those who condemn football would

is relieved by lhe football Instinct of
many of our soldiers. When the
Royal Highlanders were ordered to
make a charge ln an engagement they
jumped out of tueir trenches and
might have been kicking off in a cup
tie final.
" 'On the ball, Highlanders,' they
commenced to shout, and 'Mark your
men, Highlanders. They continued
yelling to one another until they had
driven the Germans back. 'Mark your
men,' the officers and 'non-coms' Joining in as loud as they could. Who can
say 'Mark your men' did not have a
stimulating effect upon the Highlanders?
"The French soldiers cannot understand the sang frold of the British
troops. One day at Bethune the Lin-
coins had a game of football and the
Frenchmen loosed on. During the
game a German aeroplane came over
and dropped a few bombs but no one
was injured. The game was stopped
and there was a dash for the rifles.
The firing did not wing the aeroplane,
and a French machine gun was
brought into action. It brought her
down and the game was continued.
The Frenchmen cheered the players,
and one of them said to me, 'You English are very, very misunderstandable.

Horses For the Armies
Earl Kitchener said, at the outbreak
of the present terrible war, that the
conllict would last at least eighteen
months. It is not difficult to imagine
how many horses, as well as brave
men, will be lost during this period.
Even now, horses are in constant demand and the wise farmers, who raised their colts, are reaping the benefits of their foresight.
Horses are always a good investment; doubly so now, when the demand exceeds the supply.
Many horses which would not be accepted by the army in tlieir present
condition, can be made sound and active with Kendall's Spavin Cure. This

Gurkhas  Capture  German  Convoy  in
Dead of Night
Private Orchard of the City of London regiment, Royal Fusiliers, tells of
the lighting methods of the Sikhs in
this campaign.
"We   had   been     having   a   pretty I
warm tlmo of it,"    he said.   "In the |
night the Germans made a Btealtny

tuem   come   along   until   they were
nearly on lop of us, and    then  the
'Sikhs    slipped  oul ou  their    flank.
They   made   terrible   work   with   the
bayonet, and the enemy  was practically annihilated without a shot having been tired."
Another story told by Private Orchard relates to the capture of a
Qermnn convoy by the Gurkhas. Tlie
exploit look place in tlie dead of ono
night. Tho convoy wns stationary
at the time, ami was guarded by
about twenty sentries.
"Willi knives between their teeth,
the little bruwn follows crawled
right under llie very shadows of tlie
convoy, nnd before the German sentries had llnie to realize what was
about to happen the Qui'ltllllS pounced
upon them like liners and killed every

"The Gurkhas thou settled down
comfortably lu charge of the convoy, but Ihey had not long to wait.
before   a   strong   party   of  Germans
came on the scene, and were amazed
to discover how matters stood.
"They Immediately set to attack
the Gurkhas, who slashed out to

knives, and when the unequal combat wns nt its lieigut, timely tirltish

New C.P.R. Steamers For the Pacific
Practically unsinkable are the two
new Princess steamships whicli are
now almost complete at the Dumbarton yards of Messrs. William Denny
Brothers. The Princess Margaret,
first of the new ships to be launched,
is now ready for commission and will
shortly clear the Clyde for British Columbia. The new Princesses are fitted
with double bottoms and are subdivided according to the very latest and
best practice. There are no less than
fourteen transverse bulkheads, and for
a distance of 71 feet on each side,
there is a longitudinal bulkhead some
7 feet away from the outer skin. These
transverse divisions are arranged to
carry oil fuel. The general subdivision ls such that in the.case of a collision or damage, any two compartments may be thrown open to the
sea and the vessel still remain afloat,
although she may bo loaded.
Primarily Intenued for passenger
service, these vesseis are not designed
to carry a large amount of freight.
They have cargo space for about 500
tons in tho forehold and the 'tween
decks. One of the attractive features
of this new typo of vessel being built
for the C.P.R. ls a marvelous observation room arranged forward.

French Colored Troops

Crown Prince's Regiment to the

The story of tho annihilation of one
of the crack regiments of the famous

Of the regiment that had been the

Though Wounded Crawls to Deliver
His Messa.j
Lance-Corporal Harry Head, of the
King's Royal Rilles, who was wounded
,n tile buttle of tho Aisne, states that
he was put on signalling duty with a
comrade. They were stationed on the
ridge of a steep hill behind the
trenches with a field telephone. "I had
taken ono message," he said, "and we
were arguing us to who should tuke
tho next one when a shrapnel shell
from the Gorman batteries burst just
above us. My mate was hit by a piece
of the shell right on the top of the
head, and he died shortly afterwards.
1 had to take the message then.
"I was hit near the left hip, and a
piece of the casing of the shell, about
,wo incites square, after tearing a gusli
about nine inches long in my thigh,
imbedded itself in the flesh close to
the bone. After receiving the message
I crawled as best 1 could to a spot
about twenty yards distant, where I
had to deliver it. 1 asked that sonic
one Bhould relieve me, but this was
impossible at the time. As I could not
carry the telephone, and it would
have been dangerous to havo left It, 1
smashed it with the butt end of my
rifle, thus making it of no use to the

The  Resources of Canada's Fisheries
Little Understood by Average
Few Canadians appreciate the fact
that the waters in and around Canada contain the principal commercial
food fishes iu very great abundance.
Such fishes as the cod, halibut, mackerel, herring, haddock and sardiues
are taken from Canadian waters in
immense quantities every year, while
the salmon and lobster fisheries have
world wide recognition.
Owing to the many large indentations, Canada's Atlantic coastline measures fully 5,000 miles from the strait
of Belle Isle to the hay of _ undy, and
the Pacific const line is 7,000 miles in
length. /Ul the territorial waters
along these coasts have abundance ot
food fishes. During the fiscal v. ��.-
1912-13 the Inshore and deep sea fisheries, produced lish having a market
valueofr ��29,315,772, and the product
of the inland fisheries was valued
at $4,073,892, making a total ot
$43,389,464, Of this amount. British
Columbia produced $14,455,483. an indication of the value and extent of tha
salmon and halibu' fisheries ol th.
Pacific province.
Another almost totally undeveloped
fishery is that of Hudson strait, and
Hudson bay. The Dominion government has had its fishery officers ia
these waters durii-g the past two
years. The cod and salmon fisheries
at. Port Bui well, In Hudson strait, ar.
capable of considerable development
and In time will prove to be of great
value. No official reports aro a., yet
available regarding the fisheries of
Hudson bay. Enough is known, however, to clearly indicate that not only
the fisheries of these northern waters
but the other deep sea and inshore
fisheries of the east and west coasts
are capable of great expansion. For
this reason the action of the department of marine and fisheries In endeavoring to extend the markets for
fresh lish will doubtless add steadily
to the importance of a great Canadian  industry.���A.D.,  In Conservation.

Mr, Ratepayer, what do yon

and over $6oo of your Rood money
wasted, absolutely thrown away.
Four members of the City Council
seem to be responsible for this state
of affairs Two of them are on
their feet nearly all the time, and
the other two are seemingly depended upon to "vote right."
Everything these gentlemen do
bears all the marks of having been
"framed tip" previously, bv outsiders, and when they get into the
Council Cha ''ber they do not know
how to present their argument.
This is a bright state of affairs
for a young city. Its high time
the electorate exercised their recall.
An exchange very appropriately
remarks that every laboring man
.should buy himself a town lot, get
that paid for, and then work to add
the necessary improvements. A
little here and a little there will in
due time produce a horn _ of your
own, and place you outside of the
landlord's monthly rental bill,
Rember that fifty dollars a year
saved in rent will in a few years
pay for your own home, and the
money if costs you to move about
and shift will, without any loss of
furniture and time, pay the interest
of a five hundred dollar mortgage
against your property until you cati
gradually reduce it to nothing.
You can all buy in that way; why
do yon not risk it ? If you fail,
you are no worse off ; if you succeed, as any careful man is sure to
do, you have made a home of your
own, in which you can take personal pride, and be relieved of the
great burden of paying rent.

The Tale of A Dollar Bill
A citizen went to town to spend
Some of his hard earned dough,
And in merry jcsi and just
To show his printing skill,
He printed his initials on
A lininil new dollar bill,
He spent that dollar that stme day,
Down ill a grocery stove;
lie thought 'twiis gone forever then
And he'd sec it no more.
But long before the year rolled by
One day he went to Iill
A neighbour's order ond received
Tlie same oue dollar bill,
Once more he spent that dollar bill
In his own neighborhood,
Where il would do himself  and  friend3
The most amount of Rood,
Four times in two years it came back,
As some bad pennies will,
And each time he'd go out antl spend
That marked one dollar bill.
Had he been wise that dollar might
Be in town today;
But just two years ago
He sent it far away.
The people who received it then,
I know have got it still,
For 'twas to a mail order house
He sent his dollar bill.
No more will that marked dollar bill
Come into this citizen's town,
Aud nevermore will it help to pay
The taxes he planks dowu.

Letter to The Editor
Kilitor Review,
Denr Sir:���As I happened to be in
town last Monday night I took the opportunity of listening to the deliberations of His Worship the Mayor anil
Council in session.
As a result, I must say that, before
they proceeded very far, one could not
help being struck by the amount of in
consistency displayed by some of these
fairniiiuled nie_. As an illustration of
tbis I quote tbe following:���One Alderman took very strong exception to a bill
which was presented for payment from a
Magistrate, who had charged the sum of
S3 fr r his seal aud signature on a document, on the grounds that this was an
overcharge, reminding tlie Hoard at the
same time, in a fatherly way, that it was
the citizens' money tiny , ere now
spending. However, when it came to a
question of selecting Council Chambers
the tables were somewhat turned and
prices did not count for much with this
financier, as rooms were oiTered upstairs
or on the ground floor, right in the
centre of the city, at a saving of $30 per
year; yet these Jrooms are rejected, and
for reasons that are obvious to most
people a room is taken on a Mind street.
An   argument  in favor   of the  latter
The kind you ought to use and
when you ought to have it, that it
when you really need it. We have
contracted the habit of satisfying our
customers. Our work as a business
getter  is of  the   highest   quality.
s the time to prepare for next year's harvest
Your 1 arvest will be bigger, better next year if
you put in more time on the farm. Drive a Ford���
and reduce from a matter of hours to a matter of
minutes, time spent in those necessary trips to
town during the busy season. Seventeen thousand Canadian farmers drive the Ford because it's
a time-saver���-money-saver���and pleasure-giver.

room was advanced by "alderman ou the
fence" who contended ^that strangers
coming into town in search of the Council Chambers would have great difficulty
in finding theni if they weie 111 the ftic-
Keali or Perez Blocks (although these
b'ocks are right in the centre of the
c ty) and strongly urged the renting of
the room on the blind street. Now, _ .
Bditor, I do dot think that such an argument would carry much weight wiih
anyone who stops to think, as we all
know that most of the strangers, it not
all, come from the C. P. R. station,
lown the main street and right past the
offices mentioned.
Perhaps tbis worthy Alderman bus
liad a vision of the tide turning, and the
travellers coming up the Courteuay River instead so that they could land right
at the back door.
Another very Important matter wns dis-
cu_e<l nt great length, i ut l-y ii" menus to thu
advantage of the citizens, namely: lhe n_e. ���
ing of the 1 roperty within lhe flty limits.
Again it became very plain tu tliua-- present

job, Te.iders were read from varioun peoplt
offering to do this work for the sum of about

At this point the Mayor, and afterwards
ono of the iiIdei men, who seem to have a little ci-mcilence in such matter*, pointed out
that there could he a government assessor
brought up from Victoria who would do this
wo 'k free of charge, stating that as the city
had not any too much money, ho would
strongly advise ihis course as it would save
about $2(1!', and It was being one bjf other
cities on the Island when-they became incorporated, und the fact that only one man was
di pleased in the whole city, showed that the
at_ had 1 oen lair.y fixed.
It was unite evident that if this plan had
been adop ed there was oue man who would
have kicked���Aid. Johnston, who oould nut

gave his services free.. However, eei tain ef
the aldemieii were determined to run tha city
iu fo as much cost as possible, and ufused
this offer.
What might have meant another important
saving was dealt with in the very same way,
when the returning officer's bill for services
rendered was pieaented for payment. Of
iioursethere was no overcharge in this bill,
He modestly charged the mini of 5.50 per day
for the past month or so (5 hours per day by
the way) making a total 01 about $2,_ for reg.
istering 100 voters. This does not include
printing expenses, etc, which come under a
different heading. It is worth knowing that
practically tne same work was done in Cumberland this year for the neat figure of %Vi,
Mr. Editor, in conclusion I would say,
that if our good money is going to be
handed out in this manner by a clique
in the Council, we shall very soon have
to wake up to the fact tbat we are getting
more than we made a bargain for.

Tho record of Improvements effected

leased in lilll for 89 years shows that
new wharves have been built; 46 miles
of new track have been ballasted; 30
miles of new 85 pound rails have
been laid down; .120 cattle guards
have been filled aud replaced by surface guards, while dozens of bridges
have been either unproved or rebuilt.
In round figures 6,01)0 feet of woeden
bridges have been replaced, or will
he replaced very shortly, by steel
bridges, concrete arches, and rail top

Iberville. During the past two years
.'15 stations have boon repaired and

The British Soldier
Trace Tommy Aktins back until
there was no regular Britisli army, and
then trace the English soldier back
nearly a thousand years to the time of
William tho Conqueror, and tne record
reveals him almost constantly fighting
and gripping and holding territory. He
is unequaled for these combined three
qualities. Soldiers of other nations
have fought nobly and valiantly and
often, but the result of the English
soldier's lighting is that his country's
drumbeat circles the world, and the
sun never sets ou her dominions.���

Ui'lgiuu ui'iuy, which is growing smaller each day, but is each day becoming
more dangerous on account of tlie lessons thut Ihe war has taught, the fact
remains tnat up to the present time
France has not put more than half jf
her trained men in the Held. Heroically as the British contingent is lighting,
the truth ls that it is but an advance
guard. In four months there will be
another million trained British soldiers at the front, and another million
will be trninlng. Tho reserves of tlie
Allies have hardly been called upon,
and as far ns Russia ls concerned, her
resources in men are practically unlimited, if the war should last for ten
years, at the end of that time the British, French and Russians would have
under arms far more than they have at
during lhe war time. With the most
expert evidence at their command,
thoy came to the conclusion that the
peril waa a real one, and that the government ougnt to take precautionary
measures in order to minimize lt. One
of the first acts of Mr. Asquith's administration, when war was Inevitable,
was to announce that the government

mllitary calculations were based on a
short war. Already she has lost more
men than any other nation ever lost
In the longest wnr. Every day that
passes sees her further from her goal.
As Col. Maudo says, German statistics are not secret. The total population of Germany is In round r umbers
68,000,00, of which almost exactly
half are males. O! the 34,000,000
'males 17,000,000 are either less than 18
years old or more than 70, leaving 17,-
000,000 of age to bear arms. From this
number again must be deducted the
criminals, the maimed, the blind, the
Insane and others who are negligible
as non-combatants. At the outbreak
of the war the most sanguln; estlmato
of fighting men between the ages of 20,
and 45 trained to bear arms by service,
with the colors was 4,300,000. There
remained a similar number of trained
men above the age of 45. At least
1,000,000 of the immediately available
lighting force would be needed to work
the railways, the arsenals, the dockyards, the equipment factories and
other Industries that are as Important
to the empire as soldiers of the line.
It Is estimated, therefore, that the
number that went to the front as fast
as trains would carry them was 2,500,-
000, of whom four-fifths went to Belgium and France, only 500,000 going to
oppose the Russian advance, for at
that time a good deal of reliance was
placed upon Austria. This would leave
about 1,000,000 trained men less than
45 years old in Germai.y about the
end of the first month of war. This
million would be formed into units
to replace the wastage of war and Into
the new reserve for the eastern frontier, and when It was absorbed Ger
many's resources of trained men under 45 would be exhausted. That It
was exhausted some time in September is clear from the fact that before
October tlie Landstrum formations began to appear in Belgium, composed of
men under 20 and more than 45. To
mppose that Germany would send
these untrained or immature troops to
the front if she had better material is
ibsurd. An official British dispatch
iolls of the bravery of the German lads
who faced the Brltidi, but they were
mowed down in heaps, and cannot be
expected to have the fighting powers
of grown men.
War's wastage is not to be calculat-
jd bo precisely, but Colonel Maude
lays that he does not believe that in
killed, wounded and prisoners Get-
uany could have lost fewer than _,-
300,000 men up to the beginning of
November. Since then there has been
much desperate and costly lighting,
hut if we assume that even up to the
present time the German losses on
both frontiers have been no more than
he estimates at the beginning of the
month, and If we recognlzj the fact
which he lays emphasis upon, that
uattlefleld losses are the least in such
campaigns as we have teen witnessing, and th;:f. sickness and exhaustion
supply an equal number, four of the
remaining five millions of Germany's
available men have been sent to the
front, or will shortly be sent there.
This leaves a bare 1,000,000 in reserve,
in addition to ine 3,000,000 men which
it is estimated are fighting on both
frontiers. Four-fifths of Germany s
resources in men have been already
squandered. France holds one-half of
her strength ln reserve. Neither Britain nor .Russia bas put more than one-

a few days the premium fell from five

brought down to three guineas. Even
at this figure underwriters were prepared to undercut the government office. British' shipping, which was r.t

circumstances under which war occurred, has since been resuming its
normal course. As a nation we may
congratulate ourselves on the astounding victory which a supreme fleet won

The Derivation of Admiral Is Said to
be Arabic For Lord of the Sea
"Captain ls derived from the Latin
"caput," meaning a head; "colonel"
comes from the Italian "colonna,"
a column, the "campagna oolonella"
having been the first company of an
infantry regiment, the littlj column
which the "colonel" led.
The title "lieutenant" comes from
a word signifying "holding the place"
-������e.g., a lieutenant-colonel is a sort
of understudy for a colonel, a lieutenant looks after a company In the absence of tho captalr., and so on,
The title of "lance-sergeant" and
"lance-corporal" originated In the
fact that lu the old days the holders of those ranks carried . lance instead of a halbred, round the head
of which was twisted a slow matcn.
Their duties were to go round tlie
ranks with these torch like lances
and give lire to the matchlock men
just before a battle took place.
Tho word "dragoon' was first used
by a regiment of mounted Infantry,
so called from tho "dragoons," or
short musitets, with which they were
armed; the well known cavalry call
of "Boot and Saddle" is really a corruption of the old French signal,
"Boute-Selle," or "Put on your saddles."
"Admiral" comes from the Arabic
"Emir of bagh," meaning "Lord of
the sea;" "commodore" comes from
the Italian "commandntore," "mate"
,s from the Icelandic, and means an
equal; and the term "giving quarter"
is believed to have originated in the
agreement which existed   in the old
gnting days, that tne ransom of a
foot soldiers should be one-quarter
ii his pay for one year.

Judge (rapping violently)���Order ia
the court
the eastern theatre of war tne armies
that are facing each other are not
dug in. The men are fighting upon
the surface of the eartn, and this ls
the reason why battios in Prussia and
Galicia are likely to be much more decisive than battles that result in an
equal loss of life in France and Belgium.
Un Germany's eastern frontier the
cold weather will be of advantage to
tho Russians ratther than to the defenders. Not only are the Russians
as a whole used to colder weather
man the Germans, but the frost will
make it possible for them to advance
in the groat lake region, which ln
milder weather offers a formidable
barrier to an Invader. Continued cold
weather in Prussia added to a decisive victory in the great battles now
.roceedlng would leave the road to
Berlin almost open, and might bring
the war to an end with dn.uiat _ suddenness. Another distinct advantage
to the allies that winter will bring,
whether it ls unsually cold or unusually temperate, Ib that the Zeppelins will have a poor chance of crossing tbe Engnsn channel. Whetner
it is warm or cold the channel crossing in winter is a.ways very rough,
and frequently fogs blot out the
view. In these circumstances Britain
ls not likely to have much to fear
from the dirigible.
The theory is advanced by a military expert interviewed Ly the Washington Star tu_ t the Zeppelins are
expected to perform a more Important
duty than the dropping of tombs, and
especially when the weather is such
that the transport of ammunition and
supplies ls made increasingly difficult
by soft roads. His idea is that with
the Zeppelins to carry supplies tbat
could not be conveniently transported
over mired roads, the German army
will be able to move _r^at masses of
foot soldiers far in advance of their
bases. H wever, the chief difficulty
ln the way up to the present has not
been the danger of getting too far
from a supply baBe, but of opposing
the entrenched allies. It seems certain that both the Zeppelins and the
aeroplanes will be less useful ln cold
weather, the one from the tempests
that prevails through the winter
months, and the other from tho ex
_eme cold of the higher altitudes.
Nor will artillery jr rifle fire be so
effective if the soldiers are obliged to
uso gloves. Freezing weather that
prevents he digging of trencties will
also make it impossible to bury the
dead, and it will be necessary lo ere
mate them. However, on the whole,
the problem of sanitation will be
easier. The greatest scourge of armies,
typhus, will disappear with f"eeziug
weather, and though pneumonia will
be more frequent, the mortality from
sickness and undressed wounds Ib
���n<eiy to be greatly reduced. Gn the
sea the odds will be in favor of the
best seamen. In very rough weather
the submi.rlnes are by no means so
eaBily operated, and mines are apt to
be exploded by the action of the huge
waves. On the whole, it would appear that the allies have less reason
than the Germans to fear the effect
of winter weather afloat or ashore.
After describing vividly some of
nstahoes in which the German
soldiers acted ln a most Inliuni.ii
manner, the report says:
"It appears from tho statements of
numerous witnesses that in many
rural districts around Areschot,
Dlost, Malines   and Louvain,   worse
self. Whole villagi s huv been totally
destroyed. The population, lu refuge in th woods, ls iu want of shel-
t.r and of bread, lu the ditches
there lie, all along the roads and unbailed, unfortunate peasants, women and chlh.ren, killed by tho Hermans. Into the wells bodies have
and ure contaminating
Wounded of all ages,
and sexes have been abandoned,
without -lire."
Dealing with the Gorman occupation of Louvuln, the report describes
how the town wm, sacked, huge indemnities Imposed, and leading citizens arretted and held as hostages.
It then goes on:
"On their chiefs order, the Ger-
mnn soldiers forced the doors of the
houses, and set the houses on tire
by moans of fuses. They fired on
tho Inhabitants, who attempted to
leave their dwellings. Numerous
persons who had taken refuge lo
their cellars were burned alive.
Others were shot the moment they
attempted to leave the furnace.
"Without counting tho university
halls and the Palace of Justice, 894
houses  have been burnt In  the ter-
whole of the occupation,    and havelritory of Louvain, about B00 In that
  'of the  Biiburb    of Kessel-I.oo.    The
suburb of Herent, In the commune of
Corbeok-Loo. has been almost en' rely destroyed.
"In the ravages of which Belgium
has been the object, there Is but a
single motive���tho desire to terrorize the population, tho whim to rt-
venge Itself u.on a resistance which
tho German empire cannot subdue.
The facts demonstrate themselvea;
each sorte of Belgian troops from
the camp of Anvers Is followed by
new crimes, for which the Invader
has no justification.
"He was the last soldier serving of
the Royal Artillery who fought at
Waterloo," is the inscription on the
tombstone of the great-grandfather
of Sergeant F. Myatt, A.S.C., of
Twickenham, whose name appears in
Sir John French's honors list. Sergeant Myatt's father and grandfather
were also in the army.
Theory   Advanced   as  to   Manner  In
Which Germany Will Try to Invade England
H, W. Wilson, the naval expert,
think the plan of Germany for Invading England ls as follows:
"Sue hopes to capture Dunkirk,
Calais, and Cape Grlesn^z. She wouid
men run two lines ot mines across
the channel, the southern Hue from
Cape Gr^snoz to Dungeness, the north
line from near Ostend to Deal, immediately to the south of tbe present
British minefield. Theso of two
cuains of mines will enclose the
straits of Dover and greatly hamper or
prevent the patrol of tbe straits by
tne Brtlsn warships. On the continental extremity the mines will be protected by tne monster guns which
Germany proposes to mount along
We French and Belg.an coast���when
she has captured it. Some yerrs ago
Sir Percy scott pointed out that the
then existing 12 ln gun was able to
throw Its shells across tne straits of
Dover, ami the uerman gun snould
have an effective range of eight or 10
miles ln clear weather."
"Further protection against British
mine sweepers and trawlers would be
given by the German submarines,
wnlch, presumat.y would be gradually brought dowu along tho Dutch
coast, and wnlch would concentrate
In the harbors of Ostend, Dunkirk,
Gravelines and Calais, and possib.y
by fast merchantmen, specially strengthened, with one or two heavy guns
mounted. To the channel ports flat-
bottom pontoons woulu be moved
by the great canal system of Belgium
and Northern France and the troops
would be towed over in them by
motor launches and torpedo btats.
"Finally, when the preparations
have been complotod the German fleet
may be expected to move out with Its
best and most modern ship, to meet
tne Britis' grand fleet, while its older
battleship! and vessels of comparatively small fignting value proceed to
the Straits of Dover, and, if all goes
as the kaiser hopes, pass through the
channel pr vlously arranged In the
nortnern chain of mine3 to cover the
Russia's Aeroplanes
A great deal has been heard concerning the Britisli and German aeroplanes but the great Sikorsky biplanes
used by the troops of the Czar have
been rather overlooked. These machines named Sikorsky, are by far the
biggest aeroplanes in the world. They
stand sixteen feet high, and are about
100 feet wide. The Sikorsky can carry
almost as many passengers as an air-
s..ip, and has a large passenger cab-
In, whicli ls constructed of metal and
contains numerous windows.
In this machine three engines are
fitted, which give a total of nearly
1,000 horse power.   .
The weight of the machine bas
necessitated an elaborate landing-
chassis, composed of numerous
springs and pneumatic tubes, so that
the huge biplane can alight safely on
rough ground at a speed of sixty
miles an hour.
Wounded  Aeronaut  Saved   Hit   Oa__
aged Plane, After Obtaining Position of the Enemy
A young aeronaut, with three bullet wounds in his chest, Is one o( __
favorites In the Alexandra hospital,
Petrogard. On his chest glitters the
Cross of St. George, Russia's highest
military decoration, conferred only
for bravery on the field ot battle.
He is only 19 years of age, but has
been a member of the flying corps
for over two years. His story I got
from the official records, says a correspondent; he was too modes- and
suffered too much pain to tell It himself.   This is what he did:
He was sent to reconnoitre the
enemy's position before dusk. It was
in Galicia, and the territory was unfavorable for a landing at any point.
He flew a single plane machine and
went up about 1,200 feet, at which
height, however, he could not make
out the exact positions. He therefore descended to about 500 feet, but
was discovered by the enemy, who
immediately began firing volltys at
the machine. By zigzagging with
lightning rapidity the aviator managed to stay at this height until he

British Army
The ''Bergens Announce Tid-
encle'' publishes the following tribute to the British Army, from a
member of the German general
"The Englishman is cool, in-
diffeient to danger, aud to the dispensations of Providence. He stays
where he is commanded. He shoots
magnificiently, extraordinarily
well. A fter we had broken through
the French position, it was general
French s army that stayed the retreat. Our efforts to drive the
Fnglish back were in vain, The
British are a stroug peopl_, athletic
and well developed. So we decided
to shoot them down. We ordered
our best shots to tackle them. b��t
the result was not in our favor.
Then we got all our arlillery that
could be spare against them and
swept the English positions with a
rain of shells; but how eau I describe our astonishment? Beyond
the shell zone we saw English
Soldiers' heads moving, and they
began to use their rifles again as
soon as the coast was clear, Tke
British are really a cool lot ?
