"you are loo woiderfui:"

liing of lhe
clothes, and you can have these. Now,
then, Barbara, you musi wear this
coat and skirt; we haven't iiiueh time
to spare, or we shall mis. the boat to
New haven."
"But," said Barbara, "if l musi go,
I'd rather wear my own clothes."
"And Mini's lust what you musi not
do, my little girl," said Mrs. Johnson,
"you must not wear what Ihey arc
looking for, not a bit of it! Come,
now, get inlo these, and no words
about lt. I'm tried, dead lired. I've
had a weary day; hut we'll have a Hue
time ln Paris, a gay time, and don'l
be afraid wc won't have money
Here she again took out her purse,
nnd showed Bank of Kngland notes
and quantities of gold. Kate stared
with open eyes; Barbara sunk hack,
and her weary eyes closed.
"She's  wore out like,"  said  Kate.
"It seems  hitter crool,  that it do!"
"Hold your tongue, girl! The kiddle
will come right in the end. Now, the...
I'm going to change my toggery."
"Oh, ma'am, to change again!"
"Just you leave me  alone. Would
you recognize your Miss Barbara as
she Is dressed now?"
"No, ma'am, 1 wouldn't."
"When she goes out with me she
must    wear this close veil over her
face.    Remember there are at least
twenty of the cleverest detectives in
London on my track, and if I'm nabbed,  it's ten  years'  penal servitude.
But 1 mean to win, 1 mean to win-
yes, If I die for it!"
Barbara could not possibly guess
that Mrs. Johnson had put a strong
sedative into the tea which she drank;
but she soon felt a sensation of intense
drowsiness, also a feeling that she
did not greatly care what was happening to her. Kate drew her chair
close to the little girl, and Barbara
felt Kate's orugh hand a sort of comfort; for Kate, compared to the woman who called herself her mother,
seemed to be a very special and beloved friend.
"Has she gone oil".'" said Mrs.
Johnson presently.
"I think so, ma'am: she's pretty
"Well, that's all right, that's just
what I want; she won't wake up thoroughly until we are well out of London. Now, then, Kate Jessop, I will
just go Into the other room and
change my toilette. I havo arranged
the whole scheme. Barbara is to go
lo Paris as a very sick girl and you,
are to accompany nie as her nurse,
here's a nurse's dress all complete
���cloak, bonnet with veil, and every-
things. Put. them on as quickly and
quietly as you can. If at Victoria
station anyone speaks to you, you are
simply to say that you arc taking
care of the dear young lady, who is recovering from a very serious illness.
That will serve a double purpose, for
It will keep other people out of her
carriage. Ah, I think I am clever
enough to hoodwink twenty detectives,
when all's said and done!"
Now tlie description of Sirs. Florence Dunbar and the picture at Scotland  Yard  was  that of a  tall,  fair
woman,   very  much  made-up,  eyes
large  and  light  blue,   dress   showy,
and, as a rule, of the  sort    which
would not be worn for a moment by a
respectable woman.    There was also
���and this fact was much noticed by
the police���a very peculiar twist about
her mouth, and when she walked, she
walked with a slight limp. During the
remainder  of  that  remarkable    day
Florence Dunbar had ceased to exist,
as far as the police were concerned,
for who could imagine that that showy,
disagreeable woman could be changed
Inlo Ihe neat widow, who had no limp,
whose hair was grey and whose gentle
face    was     furrowed     with   many
wrinkles?   A widow who wore a most
respectable ��� coat and  skirt of deep
black, and a little bonnet tied with
black  strings  under  her chin;   over
the back of her bonnet was a widow's
veil, and inside was the usuul white
niche worn by widows in the early
singes of their bereavement.
While Florence Dunbar had ceased
to exist, Mrs. Johnson had taken her
place; but when the said Mrs. John
. ��on came out of her room, she was
again altogether transformed. She
suddenly appeared as a young and
strikingly handsome woman; her eyes
seemed to flash lire, so large and dark
were they; her hair was raven black,
her complexion was changed from
fair to a smooth, delicate olive, with
a very faint tinge of color on each
cheek. Tho slight twist which she
had maneged to give her mouth was
altogether -obliterated. When she
smiled, which she did very often, she
showed brilliant white teeth, her
dress was that of a lady of means,
quiet, but very handsome. She was
wearing beautiful furs, neat boots,
neat gloves; in short, everything was
perfect with regard to her apparel.
��� "Now," she said, as Kate looked at
n��r In undisguised amazement, "you
wouldn't know me, would you?"
very lliiug I'
But she must he just slightly
in order to pul this veil over
her face. I shall tell any person who
speaks to me that she has just recovered from a very bad Illness, uud
that I am covering her face on purpose; Indeed, that I am Inking lur lo
see a famous doctor in Paris. You
will do besl for ine by holding your
tongue altogether, Now, Iben, I know
Unit lhe eab Is walling for us at. the
top of the cul-de-sac, and we shall be
at Victoria in no lime."
.Mrs. Villiers, as she was now called.
accomplished her designs without the
least difficulty. Numbers of men and
women saw her off, and smiled at her
as she went by. One whispered to lhe
other, "Ain't she a torf jest?"���another said, "Ain't she lhe cleverest
nipper in the whole of l.unnon?"
But there Is honor amongsl thieves;
and they, one and all, kepi, their
mouths shut, during the moment of
danger while Mrs. Villiers was getting
Barbara into the cab, following herself, and then Kate taking her place
wiih her back to the horse. A consul .able amount of luggage was put
upua the roof, and they started for
Victoria Station.
When poor lil tie Barbara next
awoke, she was far away from London
on the road to New-haven; she arrived
at Dieppe in ihe course of the night,
and ln Paris early in the morning.
We all know what the feeling is on
wakening up after a great catastrophe
has happened to us. At lirst there is
the bewilderment, the sensalion Uut
th,* whole thing must be a mistake,
then the knowledge thai it is no mistake, that the dreadful and awful
thing has happened, Barbara save a
low and ..'Iter cry. In a moment hor
mother was bending over her.
"What is it, my little darling'.'" siie
paid. She spoke in a low rich, refinerl
She and Barbara had a compartment
to themselves. Mrs. Viliers' whole
manner had changed she looked very
much like what she must have done
when Barbara father had fallen madly
in love with her many years ago.
"Oh! oh, ���where am I?" said poor
"You are not at all very well, my
dear; and 1, your mother, am taking
you to Paris. 1 am going to get a
very good doctor to see you, and your
nurse is travelling with us second-
class. Are you comfortable? Let me
put this pillow under your bead; ah!
that's better. Hold mothers' hand,
you will be quite comfortable. You
know you arranged to call me mother."
"If you wish it," murmured    Barbara in a choking voice.   Suddenly a
great flood of tears rushed    to her
eyes.   She had not cried much during
that awful day, she had hardly cried
at all since the moment of her kidnapping; but now, now���the strange, new
look on her mother's face���the tender
tone of her mother's voice, and yet the
knowledge that her mother was what
she  was,  was  altogether  too  awful,
too terrible for the poor child to endure.   She sobbed most bitterly.
"Oh, mother! oh, mother!"
"Child, child, I will be good to you.
Here, cuddle up close to me. Now, we
shall stop in a 'few minutes and the
porters may come into the carriage;
be sure you say 'mother' in tlieir presence, be sure also you take up the
role of an invalid.   Ah, the train is
slowing down.   Do you see the lights
of  the big  station?  You  will enjoy
Paris, Barbara; I mean to give you a
right good time, my little girl;  this
job lias already been most favorable
to me."
So it had, for on board the boat Mrs.
Villiers had made friends with several
Indies, who discovered afterwards, far
too late to recover their properly, that
they   had  lost   tlieir   watches    and
chains, or other articles of value. Mrs.
Villiers had them very carefully hidden away In a secret pocket which she
wore under a -loose bluose. This was
so contrived that the pocket could only
be  discovered  by  an  absolute    and
thorough search of her person, wdiich
search could not take place unless she
was formally arrested.   Thus she had
no fear.   Every one treated her with i -������   ��� -    -
the    greatest   respect;  she "tipped" j Greek church
handsomely all round.   She was strikingly  good  looking herself,  and  the
weary and tired expression of her little daughter's face���for the veil was
now no longer required���and the respectable looking nurse caused people
to think well of Mrs. Villiers���certainly not to suspect her of crime.
Presently the train drew up at a
great station, and two or three porters
came in one after the other. Barbara
was lying back on her pillow; tears
were streaming down her cheeks. One
of the porters said something in
French to Mrs. Villiers, who replied
to him Vapialy. ln his native tongue.
He said, in a tone of sympathy:
"Pauvre petite! Qu'a-t-elle?"
"Elle a ete bien malade. Je I'em-
mene pour consulter le grand Docteur
Armand." *
"Ab, oul," said the man, looking with
compassion at the girl and with interest? at the handsome lady. He offered
to get a cup of coffee for Barbara;
Mrs. Villiers gave him a handsome
tip when he brought It, and he
thought her a very line lady Indeed
and the litlle sick girl most charm
ing. Bul, then, Barbara's face was
of such a nature that, both in sorrow
and joy alike she always wore lhat
wonderful sweet expression which was
her talisman and which few people iu
this WOl'ld of sorrow possess. She
therefore attracted sympathy even in
the inidft of her ter.-ble grief.
As   lo   Mrs    Villiers.   she     felt   her
bean heal faster and taster with' absolute  affeeilon  for  the  child  she had!
lost for seventeen years.
Early in the morning they arrived at I
Paris, and went straight to the Con-;
tlliental Hotel.   There Mrs. Villiers or-j
dered   a  cupacious  suite  of  rooms-
two large bedrooms, one for Barbara j
and one for herself, a  small one tor
thO  nurse,  and  a   handsome    silling i
room.    sin. was watted on band and j
fool by the obliging stuff; and Barbara
lay on a sofa, looking wearily around.
Where  was  she  now?    What   would
become of her in the end?
Mrs. Villiers, unknown to Barbara,
had brought a trunk full of lovely
dresses with her io Paris. She accordingly changed into something very
rloh and gorgeous, and liy and by
went out l'or a walk, leaving Kale in
charge of Barbara.
"My love," she said, "If you are belter tomorrow I will lake you lo lhe
shops, and you shall choose pretty
Ihings for yourself; for my daughter
shall never lack luxuries, so long as
her mother is about. Today I inn obliged to go out on a little business of
my own."
She did go mil. She did effect her
.business, to the I line of several hundred francs l'or the goods she had secured during her journey. Llllle did
the proprietors of the Continental
guess that they were liarborin
tlieir midst perhapi the most
braled lady thief at. that time in the
Barbara lay very still and quiet;
she felt quite hopeless; her head ached unceasingly; this was probably
caused by the opiate which her wretched mother had given lo her before she
started on her journey. Kate herself
felt, excited; she was mil troubled by
qualms of conscience, and the change
from Ferris'S shop to this lovely hotel
tilled her with delight.

The Nature of Clays     |
Probably one of the greatect natural i
resources of  the  west  .s  the  supply
of clay and shale, suitable for ordinary i
I manufacturing    purposes.    Invostlga-
; lions now going on indicate that clays :
I will be found adapted to the maiuifiic-
! lure of more valuable kinds of ceramic goods as well, such as porcelain
and china.
Briefly lhe character of lhe clays
and shales employed for different purposes are as follows:
Kaolins are whil.i burning clays
composed mainly of silicas, alumina
and waler, with a low percentage of
I''ire Clays are always capable 0.
Withstanding a high degree of heat.
No clay should be called a lire clay
unless the fusing temperature is higher than 11,(1(1(1 degrees Fahrenheit. So
far very llllle lire clay has beeu found
in Western Canada." Any clay underlying a coal bed Is often called lire
clay, bul ihls Is decidedly a misuse ;f
the name.
H_ck clays The main requirement
is an easily moulder (day und on burning hard at a low temperature and
having small loss from cracking and
warping. Common red burning brick
are made from low grade (day or
shale. Pressed brick require a higher
grade ut n alerial. Paving brick should
be plastic, and have good Strength
and a wide range of temperature between vitrification and fusion. Flre-
prooflng clays should also be plastic
and burn to a hard hut not vitrill.-d
ludy at a low temperature.
Sewer pipes are vitrified and hence
Ihe clays must be In:,., in fluxes. They
should also have a wide range of temperature between vitrillcation and fusion on a proper glaze. Good sewer pipe
clays are rare in Alberta.
Terra Cotta clays are of many kinds
but generally a semi-fire clay. They
are usually buff burning.
Stone, are clays are also generally
semi-refractory and must burn tb a
dense body.
Cement shales or clays must be it
such composition as to give a proper
burning mix with limestone or marl.
They should be free from grit.

The Island of Cyprus
Was A Brave
Russian Woman
The Most Valuable and Important n
the Levant
The island of Cyprus, which has
been annexed by Great Britain, following a declaration of war on Turkey, is the most, valuable and important in tlie Levant, lt had an area
of 3,86_ square miles and is situated
in the Mediterranean sea near the
mouth of the gulf of Iskanderun,
sixty miles west of Latakia, in Syria,
with which it is connected by cable.
It has nominally heen a part of the
Turkish empire, though for some
years virtually a British possession,
governed by a British high commissioner. Us mines yield asbestos,
gypsum, red jasper, copper, gold and
silver. The copper inmes once were
among the most valuable in the
world, and from the name of the island the metal received its name
kypros, changed through the Latin

Cyprus originally was peopled by
the Phoenicians, and afterward was

Remarkable stories   of the bravery
of women who have gone to the front
are coming to hand.
Russia has always been famous for
the part played by her women ln
wars, and the present campaign has
proved no exception to the rule.
One, a Cossack girl, went as a
trooper with the full knowledge and
permission of the immediate authorities, but most of the amazons get
there is disguise, many to be iuar
their husbands, and some from sheer
love of adventure.
The Cossack girl above mentioned
had long distinguished herself in the
special martial exercises practised by
Cossacks, and could beat most men
of her age at feats of horsemanship
and sword play. Her name is Helen
Choba, and she belongs to the Kuban
A colonel's daughter, Tomiloff-
skaya by name, distinguished herself
on the East Prussian front in the
Augustowo series of lights. Like all
women at the front, she donned the
ordinary soldier's uniform, which sho
wore so naturally that she passed
quite unnoticed among the men.
Those who go with their officer
husbands' connivance usually adopt
the uniform of an ensign of reserves.
Tomiloffskaya was hit on several
occasions, but her wounds being
slight, she remained on duty. She
was once five days under lire with
the men.
But she specially distinguished herself as a scout leader in the Augustowo woods, where she had a squad
of men under her own command.
Her special piece of service here
was intercepting a telegram from the
German commander, whence it was
ascertained that Ihe German intention was to attack the- Russian centre, and of course, it was foiled.
Tomiloffskaya has also served as
scout orderly in telephonist.
The wife of a captain, n native of
Moscow, went through the Galician
campaign with her husband, possessed herself of an Austrian horse,
sword, and revolver, and was present
at all the lights ln Galicia, being
sometimes ten days at a time under
artillery and rifle tire without being
j However, the regiment was near
I Koeszenitze, when the husband was
wounded in the wrist. His wife,
who was in another part of the light,
only learned of this later. Both
are now in Moscow.
Her usual employment during the
campaign was to write reports and
buy comforts for the men, and she
once, rode fifty miles to get some tobacco for her husband's company.
She declares her intention of returning with her husband to the war as
soon as he recovers from his wound.
Good-will Among Men
Are Taught the Lesson of Humanity
on the Battlefield
The lit. Hon. David Lloyd George,
telling of his recent visit to tht. battle,
fields In France, says in part:
"1 recently visited one of tbs
battlefields in France. 1 saw a village being shelled by German guns.
A prisoner of war was just being
brought into lho French linen. He
was wounded and looked 111 und in
pain. The French general with
whom I had gone to Ihe front, went
up lo the wounded Prussian and told
him he need not worry, as he would
be taken straight to a hospital and
looked after as If he were one of our
own men. Tho Prussian replied:
'Wc treat yonr wounded in exactly
the samo way.'
"It was a curious rivalry under
these conditions, for you could bear
the whizz of German shells und the
shuddering crack with whicli they
exploded, dealing out death and destruction in the French trenches
.close by. Wc were in sight ot a
powerful French battery, which was
preparing to send its deadly messengers into the Prussian ranks a little
further on.
"I marvelled that this exhibition
of good-will among men who were
sworn foes should be possible ..amid
such' surroundings, until my eyes
happened to wander down a lane,
where I saw a long row of waggons,
each marked witli a great'Red Cross.
Then I knew who had taught these
brave men the lesson of humanity
that will gradually and surely overthrow the reign of hate. Christ has
not died in vain."
Fortune tellers are forbidden to
practice in the German empire. Soon
after the war broke out, they did an
enormous business with relatives of
soldiers in the field. Visits to the
fortune tellers often had tragic consequences, as nianj of the callers

France's Young Hero
Defying German Bullets, Calmly Carries Out Orders of His Officer
With colors flying and the hand
playing the "Marseillaise," the 127th
regiment of French Infantry marched past the youngest soldier in their
ranks, Leon Lemaire, who, although
only twenty years of age, has been
presented with the distinctiou coveted in the French, army above all
others, the Military Medal.
This is how he won it.
A few days before the colonel of
the 127th had sent Lemaire with
an important message to the captain
of one of the companies of the regiment in the trenches.
He had no sooner shown himself
on the level ground to run forward
ou his errand than the German
troops, whose trenches were here
only at short,range, opened a fierce
fire upon him by volleys. First a
bullet passed through lhe young
man's greatcoat; then his cap was
struck; his haversack and water
bottle were riddled by several shots;
then a hole was bored through the
scabbard of his bayonet.
Through it all young Lemaire advanced coolly and without faltering,
and finally he reached the trench
where the captain to whom he bore
the message was ��� remarkably
enough, without a wound.

The Trouble is Often Really St. Vitus
Dance���Do Not Neglect It
Many a child has been called awkward, has been punished in school for
not keeping still or l'or dropping
things, when the trouble was really
St. Vitus dance. This disease ' may
appear at any age, but is most common between the ages of six and fourteen years. It is caused by thin blood
which tails to carry sufficient nourishment to tlie nerves, and the child
becomes restless and twitching of the
muscles and jerking of the limbs and
body follow. Iu severe cases the
child is unable to hold anything or
feed itself. St. Vitus dance is cured
by building up the blood. The most
successful treatment is to remove the
child from all mental excitement, stop
school work and give Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. These Pills renew the
blood supply, strengthen the nerves,
and restore the child to perfect health.
Here is proof of their power to cure.
Mrs. Geo. A. MacDonald, Harrington,
N.S., says: "My son was attacked by
St. Vitus dance; at the outset his
muscles would twitch and liis step
was weak and jerky. We called in a
doctor who treated him, but notwithstanding he continued to grow worse
nnd at last grew so bad that he could
not hold a cup in his hand, while his
head constantly twitched, and his
speech became rather indistinet. At
this juncture I saw in a paper the
cure of a boy from similar trouble
through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. We at once sent for a supply,
and in a few weeks after lie began
their use there was considerable improvement, and it was not long after
this before he was completely cured,
and has never had a symptom of the
trouble since. I am convinced that
there is no medicine like Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for the cure of St. Vitus

There is a solitary grave near

It is the last resting place of an
English soldier, who, quite aluue,
there fought his last light till overwhelmed by numbers. During the
great retreat he had strayed from
his comrades and fallen exhausted
from fatigue.
("liable to find them, he took up
his quarters in an abandoned carriage, hut thirty-six hours later the
Germans appeared on the other side
of the Aisne and fired at blm.
Undeterred by the fact that lie
was utterly alone, he replied, and
such was his determiantlon aud accuracy of aim that the villagers declare he accounted for six German

had fought, erected a cross, and in

expect to make money out of his

they corstuue. Nine out of every
ten of the so called poultry fanners
purchase every sciap of food their
chickens eat. Tbis condition

evey pound of grain or other food
required, then his poultry would
pay, jtut tbe same as beef or
hogs. Let a farmer buy all the
focd he requires to feed beef and
hogs and see where be gets off at,
Tbe same applies to dairy farming.
Take a good look round the valley

money and which are not. Those
who grow all the feed tbey can, and
keep stcck enough to eat it up,
whet'ier they be tenant farmers or
not, are the ones who have the

The Conseryative Party
Mr. Editor,���There has been considerable agitation on the part ot
the Liberal party throughout the
province to bring discredit and dishonor on the present Government.
The Liberals are making good use
of the hard limes throughout the
province and dominion. While
they were never guilty of accrediting t' e progress and prosperity of
the province to the good and
wise government, they do not for a
moment hesi.ate to lay the blame
of the present ha-d times to the
maladministration of the powers
that be. The Liberals, while never
overburdened with wisdom, are
well aware of the fact that every
party has followers to d > all for
the party as long as tiie "loaves aud
fi=hes ' come tlieir v. ay, but who,
on the first sight of trouble forsake
and deny the hand that administered to their nee If. These malcontents tbe Liberals welcome to their
ranks furnish tin m with inflated
pigskins Into which they put a feu-
dried peas, like the "Dominion
Tru.t Affair," with which to make
noise enough to stampede a herd oi

The Government at Victoria,
while for yeais has had no opposition, has beeu in a position where
the heads of lhat great party had
to show au abuoiuia! amount of
integrity, resolution, and efficiency.
This statement needs some explanation. It bas be'ii the record
of history, that whenever auy
political organization has had such
supreme control of the affairs of
state, corruption, vice, blackmail,
and graft, lias bteu bled tostich .11
extent that the whole edifice
crumbles to pieces. It is useless to
cite instances in countries much

true that it is asking the impossible
to get any one to gainsay it, The
Liberals are so sure ot it that they
chiin this to be true of the Government of B. C, even while they cannot lay a finger ou any member of
the Legislature, Nevertlwless it is
true ni spite of the long term of

most unique position of auy political party in historv.

Caracul sheep were first Imported

Professor Wallace of Edinburgh
having recently recommended a trial
of Caracul sheep in Great Britain, an
experiment is being made with them
in Scotland, and good results are
staled to have been obtained.
Some specimens of the sheep have
been successfully introduced into
Natal and other parts of South
Africa, where, however, little attention seems tn have beeu paid to the
produclion of "Persian" lamb skins.
A flock of caracul sheep bas recently

W.N.U. 1036 THE   REVIEW.   COURTNEY,. J��. C.
Their   Sophistry   Endeavored   to   Win   the   Sympathy   of the
Vmcrican People, and Place the Blame (or the War
on Grcat Britain and Her Allies
Nlrety-three of the most prominent
Hen    ot   Germany, distinguished iu I
various branches of science, art, edu-
CatlOD,   and literature,   have recently I
tirculated      broadcast.      throughout I
America a letter entitlet. "An Appeal!
to the Civilized World," In which they
attempt to change public opinion iu
the United States   ou the subject of
the war.    .Mr.   Church,   president of'
the Carnegie institute, at Pittsburgh,
and author of "The    Life of Oliver i
Cromwell,"   hns  made   reply  to  tbo,
German appeal, which is addressed to
Dr. Fritz Schaper, of Berlin, lie says;
"lt gives me a feeling of pity   o'
note the importunity with which the
people ol  Germany   are seeking tho
lood opinion of America In Ihis strife.'
It is greatly lo lhe .- credit that they:
wisli to stand right iu the judgment
of    ihis nation.    Hut Germany need j
have no   fear   that   American public:
opinion will be perverted by tbe lies
and calumnies of   her   enemies.   We j
are all going deeper than the BUt'fase
lu  cur  search  for  the  truth.    Vour i
loltorspeaks of Germany ai being In
a struggle which has been forced up-1
on her.    That is Ihe whole question: ]
all others   are    subsidiary    1-  -this
struggle wns   forced upon   Germany,
then, indeed, she stands in it positicn
of mighty dignity and honor, ami the
whole world should acclaim her   and
succour her, 'o the utter confusion and
punishment of the foes who have attacked her.    But if this    outrageous
war was not forced upon her, would
lt not follow in tlie course of reason
that her position ia without dignity
and honor and that it is ber foes who
-.liould be acclaimed and supported to
the extreme limit of human sympathy?
"1 believe, dear Dr. Shaper, that
the judgment on this paramount; question has been formed. That, judgment ls not based upon the lies and
calumnies of the enemies of Germany, nor upon the careless publications contained in the newspapers, but
upon a profound study of the official
correspondence in the case. What
do the official documents prove?
Afler reviewing the evidence Mr.
Church concludes:
"Who began it? Was it England?
Scarcely so, for Kngland. in so far as
her army is concerned, had yielded to
the popular idea of arbitration; sbe
was not ready for war and will not
be ready for another six months.
Was it France? Was it Hussia? Not
one, of the 93 distinguished men who
have sent me this letter, if they will
read the evidenc, will say so. It was
Austria, who, by her unreasonable and
inexorable attack on Servia, began
the war, cupported at every step by
Germany, who, ln her turn, gave notice to the Powers of Europe that any
interference with Austria would be
resented by Germany to the full limit
of war." /
.Mr. Church proceeds:
"The next point in your letter reads
thus: 'It is not true that we trespassed in neutral Belgium.' Have these
93 men studied well the ietter they
have signed? Could intellects so
superbly trained deliberately certify
to such an unwarranted declaration?
Has any one of my 93 honored correspondents read the appeal to the
American people by Imperial Chancellor von Bethmar.-Hollweg, published in the ,American newspapers on
August 15? I fear nor, for in that
statement the chancellors aid: "We
were compelled to override the just
protests of the Luxemburg and Belgian governments. The wrong���i
speak frankly���that we are committing
we will endeavor to make good as
soon as our military goal has been
"What will the good conscience of
the German people say when, ln spite
of itsjiassion in the rage of war, _
grasps the awful significance of the
confession of its imperial chancellor?
'The wrong that we are committing.'
The wreck and ruin of a country that
has done you no injury, the slaughter
of her sons, the expulsion of her king
and government, the blackmail of her
substance, ihe destruction of ber
cities,   with their happy homos, their
beautiful monumen's of historic times,
and the priceless works of human genius! 'The wrong that we are committing.' Worst of all, when the desperate and maddened populace, seeing
their sous slain and their homes in
llames, tired from their windows iu
the last Instinct Qf nature, your troops,
Willi barbaric ferocity, put ihcm to the
sword without distinction of age or
sex! The wrong! Oh, Doctor Schaper, if these conditions should ever be
reversed and these foreign soldiers
should march through the streets of
Berlin, would not you, would uot all,
of my 93 eorrospoi.dents, if they saw
ihelr homes battered In ruins and
their sons dead In the streets, would
they, loo, not lire from their windows
upon the merciless Invaders? 1 am
sure 1 would ilo so!
"Yonr reference to German militarism brings up iu my mind the conviction that this war began potentially
"5 years ago when Emperor William
II. ascended the throne, declared him-.
self Supreme War Lord and proceeded
tu prepare his nation for war. His
own children were raised from their
babyhood to consider themselves soldiers and to look forward to a destiny of slaughter, antl here in America we know even his daughter only
by her photograph in a colonel's uniform. And so with his own children,
so all the youth of his empire were
brought up.
"Going far away from your great
philosopher, Kant who in his Categorical Imperative has taught us ..11
a new golden rule, the national spirit
of Germany has been fed on the sensual materialism of Nietzsche, on the
undisguised bloodthirst of "General
Bernhardi, on the wicked war dreams
of Trietschke, and on the weak morality of von Buelow; and we behold
in every scrap ot evidence that we
can gather from your Emperor, his
children, his soldiers, his statesmen
and his professors that Germany held
herself a nation apart from the rest
of the world and superior to it and,
predestined to maintain that superiority by war. in contrast to this narrow and destructive spirit of nationalism we in America have learned the
value of humanity above the race so
that we cherish all mankind in the
bosom of our country. Therefore we
can do nothing but execrate the conduct o�� your emperor who has driven
his troops to slaughter their brethren
and be slaughtered by them in his
bloody and unspeakable conflict.   .
"And, so, at last, my dear Dr. Schaper, we find ourselves shocked, ashamed, and outraged that a Christian
nation should be guilty of this criminal war. There was no justification
for lt. Armed and defended as you
were, the whole world could never
have broken into-your borders. And
while German culture still has something to gain from her neighbors, yet
the intellectual progress which Germany was making seemed to be lifting up her own people to better
things for themselves and to an altruistic service to mankind. Your
great nation floated its ships in every
ocean, sold its wares ln the uttermost
parts of the earth, and enjoyed the
good favor of humanity, because it'
was trusted as a humane state. But
now all this achievement has vanished, all this good opinion has been destroyed. You cannot In half a cen-
utry regain the spiritual and material
benefits which you have lost. Oh,
that we might have again a Germany
that we could respect, a Germany of
true peace, of true progress, of true
culture, modest and not boastful, for
ever rid ot her war lords and her
armed hosts, and turning once more
to the uplifting Influence of such leaders as Luther, Goethe, Beethoven,
and Kant! But Germany, whether
you win or lose ln this war, has fallen,
and the once glorious nation must
continue to pursue its course 1. darkness and murder until conscience at
last bids it withdraw its armies back
to its own boundaries there to hope
for the world's pardon upon this inexpiable  damnation.���London  Times.

Alberta Yield;, up Carload of Fossils to
American Museum
With a carload of fossils that break
the world's records for perfection in
all their parts, Barauin Drown arrived
nt tlie American Museum in New York,
after a season's strenuous digging iu
_-. Kcd R'ver canyon of Mberta.
Prof, .lenry F. Osborne of tlio museum was astonished when he learned
that in the cargo were ligut perfec;
skeletons of carnivorous and herbivorous dinossaurs of gigantic size, as it
has heretofore been almost impossible to get more than parts of the
bones of a species. Much of the material is new to science.
''The fossils were found in the Belly
River formation, and are estimated to
have lived 11,000,000 years ago. This
formation is much earlier than the
'lance cretaceous,' at which time the
entire group of dinossaurs became extinct. One skeleton Is the first one
found iu ilie genus OrnllhoniiU3,
about eight feet long and about five
fei t high.
"We got a complete skeleton of the
carnivorous dinosaur named Dcinoder
llorridns. lie was about, twenty-live
feet long and fifteen feet high. Another complete skeleton is of the
herbivorous dinosaur, Corytbatiaurus
Oasunrlus, about thirty-five feet long
and fifteen feet high.
"The complete Ankylosaurus Mag-
ntventris was a big, plated fellow,
the most remarkable In structure of
all cf the groups of the dinosaurs. He
was the living dreadnought of cretaceous times. He was approximately six
feet high at the shoulders and eighteen
feea long. The entire body was plated, the back with huge plates, and
tho belly with smaller plates close-
tilting, similar to ancient armor."

The End of a North
Polar Expedition
Surviving Members of a Russian Expedition   Have  Just   Returned
Frapi Frozen North
A press dispatch has reported the
arrival at Archangel of the surviving
members of the expedition which left
Hussia. in the Minima of 1912, under
Captain Sedov; in ihe hope, of reaching llie North Polo by way of Franz
Josef l.iin't. 'i'.-e : urvivors reporl the
death of their leader from illness,
while y;i. .uptiiig ie sledge north from
Franz Josei Land. This expedition
was financed ciiitfly by the well
known St. Petersburg newspaper, the
"Novoya Vremja," and was generally
believed lo be badly equipped when
it started north. The undertaking was
not favored by the Russian government. Sedov's previous Arctic experience had included an expedition to
the mouth of the Kolyma ln 1909, and
one to Nova Zembla in 1910, but the
impression prevailed when he left
Russia on his final journey that neither he nor his men had sufficient skill,
training or equipment to give hope of
valuable results from their expedition.
The winter of 1912-13 was spent at the
Pankratiev Islands, off the northwest
coast of Nova Zembla. The following
summer, eight of the twenty-two men-
bers of the expedition were obliged to
return to Russia on account of illness.
The others were supposed to have
sailed for Franz Josef Land, but a3
no further tidings were received of
them the Russian authorities recently
sent an expedition in search of them
on the steamer "Hertha."
Great Britain la i, u naze the world
with several wars ot a new type,
much above the .;,. .Dreadnought,
says Henry Temple In the International News. Admiral Jellicoe will bo
able to lay down a hand on the playing table of lhe North Sea next summer at which the Kaiser's navy will
stare in astonishment.
These new ships are of tho Queen
Elizabeth class, not one of which ls
yet In commission. Details of them
arc certainly gtiarded, and publication of facts concerning them .n
Great Britain would probably be followed by severe punishment. From
a friend who recently visited the
jealously barred Devonport yard,
however, I have obtained a layman's
view of one of these giant crafts.
She was the Warspite, which will be
ready for action within six months.
The Warspite will carry ten 15.5
Inch guns. What this means can be
realized when it is remembered that
the latest American battleships carry
only 14-inch guns. Even more important is the wonderful turret arrangement. The turrets rise above
each other like boxes in a grandstand,
so that it Ib possible to tire all of her
15.5 guns from hor bow. This Is an
achievement, of which naval construction woultl have despaired only
More wonderful still, this monster
floating fort Ms not unable to pursue
swift cruisers. She makes twenty-
six knots, a speed greater than the
fastest transAtlantlo liner.   Her bow
is narrow at the water lino and
widens ln such a way as to offer tho
hast possible resistanco to the seas.
Another Important feature ls her
armor. It ls said sho will bo ablo
practically to defy any ordinary torpedo or mine. This is accomplished
by means ot a triple coating of armor below the water line. An ex-
ternal explosion can damage, but not
sink her. Of course she ls oil driven.
Her cost will be about f 16,000.000.
There are six such shlpB building,
which are expected to shake out their
colors within six months. Construction ls so perfectly organized that
they can be built In eighteen months,
from the time tbey were started, lt lt
I am unable to learn whether all,
or only one of the new battleships
will be able to Are all ten of itt
large guns from the bow. I am informed, however, that besides these
six new battloshlps, the Devonport
and Portsmouth dockyards alone are
to produce eight battle-cruisers by
next spring or early summer.
At Devonport 9,000 men are employed, with about 5,000 soldiers md
marines always on guard.
Winston Churchill, First Lord of
tho Admiralty, recently stated ln the
house of commons that Great Britajj
could lose a super-Dreadnought every
month without diminishing her relative superiority over the German navy,
even though the Germans kept all
their ships Intact. From what I
learn, this was no idle boast.
A Campaign to
Encourage Production
Farmers   Throughout    Dominion   Invited to Assist in Great
The government is planning an active campaign to stimulate agricultural production of all kinds during the
coming year. The Hon. Martin Burrell
is arranging for a series of conferences throughout the Dominion, at
which the farmers of the various districts will be called together and
given full information as to conditions In Europe, and the great demands for food to supply the allies
while the war is om
The best means whereby Canada
can help to meet those demands will
.be fully diccussed by the farmers, as
well as by those sent to address them.
When the exact situation is impressed
on them it is expected that they will
respond heartily, and shape their
work to the best times of production;
and do their utmost to help ln their
own way Britain and her allies. Incidentally, the country will benefit
very greatly from the increased production.
Accurate and complete Information
ls being gathered, and well informed
and capable men will meet the farmers of Canada and discuss the whole
situation. While the Dominion department of agriculture will be asked to
co-operate, and. all organizations interested in this movement will be
called upon to assist.
The Certain End
Germany Is doomed to sure defeat.
Bankrupt ln statesmanship, overmatched in arms, under the moral condemnation of the civilized world, befriended only by the Austria and the
Turk, two backward looking and dying
nations, desperately battling against
tlie hosts of three great powers to
which help and reinforcements from
states uow neutral will certainly come
should the decision be long deferred,
she pours out the blood of ber heroic
subjects and wastes ner diminishing
substance ln a hopeless struggle that
postpones but cannot alter the fatal
decree. The world cannot, will not,
let Germany win in this wa,1. With her
dominating all Europe, peace and security would vanish from the earth.���

It has been estimated that the
French forces mobilized up _o the middle of September numbered about 2,-
000,000. France's losses so far must
be well over 500,000, so that the reinforcement received since the middle of
September could do little more than
fill up the gaps. But it must be remembered that France's conscription
system is much more inclusive than
Germany's ever was and that France
had at the outbreak of the war nearly 5,000,000 trained men to call to tne
eolors. The citpply of men far exceeded the supply of materials, i nd the
French government's chief problem
so far has been to make good deficiencies in equipment.

Turkey Was

Teld That India ;nd Moslem Countries
Groan Under Christian Rule
In a Ions dispatch to Sir Edward
Grey, Sir Louis Mallet, the British ambassador, describes events at Constai. j
inople which culminated in Turkey's |
rupture with the Allies.
Sir Louis tells how, despite all his
warnings, the Grand Vizier maintained confidence iu his ability to
prevent Turkey from being Involved
in the conllict, hut how eventually
the influence of the war party proved too strong for him.
"In pursuance of ;. long pr.pared
policy," he says, "the greatest pressure was exercised by Germany to
force Turkey into hostilities.
"German success in tho European
war was said to be assured. The
perpetual menace to Turkey from
RUBsia might, it was suggested, be
averted by a timely alliance with
Germany and Austria. Egypt might
be recovered, for the enipL'j of India
and other Moslem countries were representing as groaning under Christian rule and might be kindled into a
flame of infinite possibilit.- for the
Caliphate of Constantinople.
"Turkey would emerge from war
the one great power of the east, even
as Germany would be the one gre.,t
power of the west.
"Enver Pasha, dominated by a
quasi-Napoleonic ideal, by political
Slavism aud by the conviction of the
superiority of German arms, was
from the first a -trong partisan of
the German allianco,
"At what moment, Talaat Bey, ihe
most powerful civilian in the cabinet
and most conspicuous of the committee leaders, finally threw. In his
lot witli the war party, cannot be
ascertained precisely."
Sir Louis proceeds to recount tlie
Bteps which the war party, with German 'help and unchecked by the cabinet, took to complete plans for military operations until the rupture was
finally precipitated by the incursion
of the Bedouins in to the Sinai Peninsula and tha bombardment of Russian po''ts in Hie Black Sea.
"The war party sealed their resolution to go forward," he concludes,
"by publishing a communique, in
which it was stated that the first
acts of hostility in the Black Sea had
come from the Itussian side.
Untrue and grotesque as it was
Ibis invention succeeded in deceiving
many of the public. It is not possible
to establish by proof which of the ministers had pre-knowledge of the German admiral's coupe, but it may be regarded as certain that Enver Pasha
was aware of it. and it is highly probable that Talaat Bey was also an accomplice."
The governor's wife was telling
Bridget about her husband.
"My husband, Bridget," she said
proudly, "Is at the head of the state

Bridget cheerfully. Ain't he got th'

Parisian Boy
Saves Soldiers
He   Hurries Them to Garret, Sklr__
Ishes for Food and Manages to
Hide Them For Oays
How a school boy of Paris, tlxtetia
years old, who was spending hl3 v-tcar
lion with his aunt at Roye, saved tea
Englishmen, escaped prisoners, and
hid them tor days in a garret while
the Germans were in possession of tit*
town, is told ln a letter published ta
the Figaro, written by a French soldier.
According to the letter, nine English
soldiers, with an o.iicer, who had succeeded in escaping from the Germans,
arrived at Roye the day before tie
Germans occupied the place, and, tired
out, managed to drag themselves to
the house where the boy and his aunt
were stopping. They were received
with open arms, but had hardly Install-
| ed themselves before tile German advance guard came pouring into the
town. The boy hurried the Englishmen into the garret. There they huddled while a German officer was
knocking at the door. The officer, well
informed through spies of the resources of the town, Insisted on quartering in a disused chapel n the properly twenty men.
ln the house at the time besides the
boy and his aunt were women refugee.*
who took shelter t: ere. The party in
all numbered sixteen. The lad tried
to make himself as useful as possible
to the Germans, in order to keep in
llieir good graces, and succeeded in
gaining tlieir confidence. The great
trouble was food. The German had
placed the entire place on rations, 200
',-iams of bread a person a day. With
sixteen rations of bread they were
forced to sustain twenty-six. However,
r'ic boy managed to forage about and
obtain at least sufficient foo; to satisfy the cravings of hunger.
Alter live days of incarceration up
in lhe garret the British soldiers, deprived of air ami light, became desperate. Under the surveillance exist-
in., for the Englishmen to come out it
meant death for them and for the
family. So the boy obtained women's
dresses and each day managed to take
two of the Englishmen out in the
girden for a breath of air. "What
luck,'' he said, "that I had no moustache, and that the English are accustomed to shaving!" The German
soldiers paid no attention to the supposed women.
But the Englishmen became more
ami more restless, so one morning at
two o'clock they slipped out under the
guidance of the boy. Gliding along the
si reels, wriggling through ditches,
hiding under cover of walls, they arrived almost at tbe gates of the town
when a sentinel discovered them and
tired his piece. At once the alarm
was sounded, and the party scattered,
to find themselves, through some good
fortune, back at the house again two
house later.
Health of the Troops
All the evidence goes to show that
disease has not yet become a weighty
factor in the war. Illness there must
be, as a matter ot course, and probably there is a good deal ot lt in the
aggregate. Among such vast bodies
of men, even though tbey are of
picked age and physique, illness of
different kinds is Inevitable, hut lt
has evidently not got beyond control.
and we may assume that the means ot
dealing with it are fairly . dequate.���

The kind you ought to use and

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.
The regular meeting of the couucil was held last Monday evening.
The Mayor and all tho members
were present. After the reading
of the last regular meeting and the
special meeting, the following communications were read, from R.
M. Allan, re safe and typewriter.
Laid on the table for furtlier consideration,
- Chairman of hall committee reported the result of interview with
solicitor Dundas, re, renting of
room from Mr. Callin, Report
to be laid on the table for. further
Chairman of Works reported that
the Union Street bridge needed repairing, and contract for the same
had been let.
Moved by Aid. Robertson, seconded by Aid. Leighton, that the
clerk be instructed to ask the originators of the incorporation of the
city for any correspondence that
they might have which would be
of use in looking into the. affairs of
the ci'.y with the Government.
Aid, Johnston then introduced a
by law to regulate the proceedings
/of the standing committees    After
some acrimonious discussion it was
'given its ist and 2nd reading.
Aid. Johnston asked  about the
work being done   on   tne   bridge,
_ld. Leighton replied that it would
take 8 or io planks to do the work.
The Mayor asked the solicitor  if
the couucil could alter the statutes.
Aid.Johnston   read a   telegram
fiom   solicitor   _odw.'l\   Council
could pass this by-law, and referred
to Section 41.
Aid. Crompton said that the
Board of Work should not be allowed to spend any money without
authority of the couucil.
Aid, Leighton wanted to know
about cases of emergency,
Aid Kirkwood said he was not
iu favor of so much work being
done on Vill Street.
Aid. Leighton wanted to know
if it was not necessary.
Aid. McKenzie said although he
was on the committee he was not
Aid. Johnston said that his bylaw would stop all committees
spending any money without consulting the council,
Authority was then given the
Mayor and clerk to sign all cheques'
and vouchers.
Aid. Johnston strenuously opposed this, he holding that the finance
committee should also sign them.
Aid. Crompton read a petition
from the Cumberland Board of
Trade praying the government to
put a duty of one cent p.-r gallon
on fuel oil. The council signed it,
also all the citizens iu th; hall.
Mr. Callin will be asked to take

New businfss
Aid. Leighton wanted to kn .w
what rate of wages would  be ^aid
b,'the city.   Aid. Kirkwood suggested the   same as   paid   by   the
Government,  which   Mr.   Wilmshurst said at present   was $3   for
laborers, aud $3.50 fo' bridge carpenters,   This was a.lopled.
The council went into committee
of the whole on the Licensing bylaw, and the bottle license clause
was Struck off, Th. Electric light
clause was also struck out This
caused q'.:it<_ a di-eiission. The
Mayor said there wi.s no difference
between llie Electric Light and
Telephone Co,' Aid, Johnston said
we all a,i|)itciaie the Electric Light
Co., prjviding the city does not
j have to pay too dear for it. We
believe ti.it the council can compel
reasonable terms or a three or four
year franchise as regarding street
lighting, a lantern is good enough
for me.
Aid. McKenzie said that the
reason tor Incorporation was that
we shou'd own or control public
Utilities The Telephone Co. had
been he . a long time, and the
Light C). had forced themselves
here in a hurry, and now we would
have to own or control it.
The committee rose and reported.
The by-law regulating council
proceeding 1 was read a third tune
and passed. The council will meet
ou the 1st and 3rd Monday iu each
month in the future,
