Soldiers of thc empire, our blood
thrills with pleasure—with patriotic
pride—when we realize that you ro on
u mission greater, grander, than even
your glorious forefathers undertook,
In the execution of tluit mission some
of you may fall, we hope not, but in
any case you will not fall to accomplish what you go lor. That is to
preserve the honor and Integrity of
the empire, to punish and destroy a
treacherous foe, to end forever tho
military tyranny of a mad autocrat
who will send Innocent millions to
their death, for what? to satisfy his
criminal ambition, his longing to
preserve liis military dominions and
the existence of his dynasty.
Soldiers, you represent the determination of the British race that justice shall rule, you have the sympathy and admiration of the whole
world—you have not been pressed but
volunteered to do your duty, we are
proud to know you will do it. When
we consider what the ultimate "results" may be we liave cause to be
still prouder of such as you, the results for the good of the human toilers of the universe may be grander

The Strathcona Trust for the Encouragement of Physical Training and
Military Drill In Public Schools
I beg to remind you that in 1010 tlie
education department of this province accepted the conditions of the
Strathcona Trust for the encouragement of physical training and military
drills in the public schools; Regular
and systematic instruction In physical
training, according to the syllabus
laid down iu the prescribed text-book
(Syllabus of Physical Exercises for
Schools, published by the Executive
Council, Strathcona Trust), is now
For tho purpose of competition and
an inspection of physical training, the
division of the province Into the present inspectorial districts has beeu accepted by tho members of the local
committee for British Columbia, who
are charged by the executive council
of the Strathcona Trust with tho administration of tlio grants to the province from the Income derived from the
trust funds donated by the late Lord
strathcona for tho objects named
above. All awards In the competitions for priv.es for physical training
■ shall be made on the recommendations of the high school inspector und
the respective public school Inspectors. The prizes offered below repre-
:■• *nted tlie accumulated grants for
physical   training  of  tho  past  four
j years. After the present school-year
: 11014-15) the amounts at the disposal
! of tlie local committee tor prizes during  any  one  year  will  therefore  be I
■ much smaller.  .
For competition among the high and j
superior schools of the province flur-
Ing 1014-15, the local committee ofj
the Strathcona Trust has allotted the \
: sum of ¥150 for physical training, and
has directed that this amount be dl-
vlded   into   live   prizes,   as   follows:
] First,  $">0;   second, ?40;  third, $30;
I fourth, $20; lifth,$10
Tho local committee has also set
aside §075 for physical training prizes
!n the graded and common schools of
Hie province. The sum of $75 has
thus been allotted to each inspector-
Lite to be divided into three prizes,
viz: First, $35; second, $25; third,
sl5. Inspectorate Xo. 4 which includes Vancouver City, Bumaby, Delta, Point Grey and Richmond municipalities, and Is In charge of three
Inspectors, has been regarded as three
inspectorates and rtftll receive a grant
of $225.
Tho above described prizes are to
ho awarded to those rooms which
most nearly meet tlie conditions of
•>Iiysienl training outlined by the
Strathcona Trust, and it is suggested
*>y the locnl 'committee that the In-
■pector shaU allot marks when inspecting  training  on   thc   following
] plan: 20 per cent to bo alloted for discipline, orderliness, and cleanliness,
he discipline and orderliness to be
judged during tlie ordinary school
work as well as during physical exercises; 85 per cent for the performance
of physical exercises of prescribed
ext book; 45 per cent for general phy-
■iique and health of the school. The
manner in which the children sit at
the desk and carry themselves when
walking or standing still should be
Hatefully noted an erect carriage being
of prime importance.
The teacher to whom nn award Is
made shall be entitled to two-thirds
of the prize the other third to bo expended for a picture or some piece of

London, Aug. 20.—Another version
of the Zeppelin attack is received from
Heater's Antwerp correspondent! wiring Tuesday:
"The Zeppelin evidently took advantage of it heing n dark night and
therefore suitable for a sudden raid.
One bomb fell and made a hole six
feet six Inches la diameter aud 22
inches deep, it was probably tilled
with shot. All the houses In the
neighborhood were struck by bullets,
and ft appeared as though a battle had
taken place.
"All doors and windows nearby
wero broken, ceilings fell and the
street was covered with dust an inch
thick. Three men wen* walking
through the rue do la Culrne when
the bomb fell. One of them was killed and the others mortally wounded.
A passerby had a leg torn off. A
terrific panic prevailed, the people,
rushing Into the s rods shouting and
weeping and begging for assistance.
A married couple who were sitting
in a window at their home were kill-

Many others were hurt.

Editor Cranbrook Herald:
Dear Sir: Kindly give me access
to your valuable columns for n few
words of counsel to the people of
Cranbrook. There are at the present
writing being offered for sale in the
homos of the people books that purport to be Studies on the Bible. As I
have known these works for years
and also enjoy tlie acquaintance of
many of the subscribers I ask this
indulgence that-1 may inform them of
their character; 1 am fully persuaded
that nine-tenths of them are entirely
ignorant of their contents and would
not purchase them if they knew. Personally 1 believe in the principle of
free speech and a free press therefore if tlie vendors of these books desire to sell and the public to buy
them that is tbeir matter, not mine.
The author of these works is E.
T. Russell, or as ho Is more popularly known, Pastor Russell, of Brooklyn, N.Y. Of this man's personal
character I refrain from speaking
further than to say that to my knowledge he lias in the last four years
instituted legal proceedings twice
tn the courts of the I'nited States
and Canada for redress for attacks
upon it, and in both instances was
defeated. It is of his teachings we
are more sedionsly concerned.
Russelltsm teaches that tlie Second
Advent of our Lord, began (physically or spiritually, It matters not) in
IS74. Of this lie has not produced
a shred of evidence. We cannot in
ihis brief letter enter into tiie proofs
so easily produced against these doctrines.    Space does not permit.
Russelllsm denies tlie divinity or
Jesus Christ, by denying Ids pro-
existence and eternity.
Russeliism denies tlio divinity of
the atonement. Jesus died only as a
Russeliism denies the resurrection
of Jesus Christ.
Russelllsm denied tlie ascension of
Jesus Christ in the body.
RusselllBm denies tlio hlgh-priest-
hood of Jesus. Ho is spirit only. His
humanity was lost In his death.
Russelllsm afflrms that death is extinction of being.
Russeliism alarms that the unbelieving dead will be recreated and
will have another opportunity of. salvation. The irresistible logic of this
principle is apparent, transforming
sin into virtue, for tho recreated unbelieving will, in the light of liis former experience of sin in this life.
choose salvation. Russelllsm donylng
the resurrection of tlie body of Jesus
tacitly denies tlie resurrection of believers tn the same manner.
Russelllsm repudiates the personality of tho Holy Spirit. Holy spirit
I in this doctrine Is merely the holy
i disposition or character dovoloped in
man. If these denials of the great
fundamentals of our faith do not reveal AntNl'.hrtbt, whence shall we
search further to find him?

Hud that ln the very last moment of
peace before Urcftt Britain finally embarked ln this contest she made this
earnest proposal to the German government:
'' 'That if this most appalling crisis
could be passed lt would make for
pence, and ahe would make every Influence and every effort that she could
command to bring about such au understanding between Germany and
her ally on the one hand, and Russia
and France on the other hand,, as
would relieve Germany and Austria
from apprehension of attack from that
quarter, and the minister professed
himself as inspired with a very full
confidence that If this could have been
done, thc great result would have
been brought about.'

The Premiers Speech
Right Hon, Sir Robert Borden:
"1 desire to associate myself wtlh
the words of appreciation uttered by
my right honorable friend Sir Wilfrid
Laurier with regard to the speech with
which we have just listened to from
the mover and the seconder of the address. These speeches fully recognize
the duty of unity at the present time,
nut only iu Canada but throughout the
British dominions, to meet a crisis, a
possible danger, such as this country,
this empire, has not confronted for
100 yenrs at least. I have listened,
too, with the utmost interest and the
must profound admiration to the patriotic speech which has Just fallen
from the lips of my right honorable
friend the lender of the opposition. Already, even before the parliament has
been called, he had announced to his
friends and to the country that his
meetings were discontinued, that the
voice of party strife was hushed for
the time being and that he and his
friends would co-operate In every
way with those upon whom fall the
duty, at this moment of doing he affairs of this counry in taking all such
measures as may be necessary for
thc defence of Canada and fur maintaining thn honor and Integrity of the
empire whose flag floats over ua.

explained later on.   On the very day

during the past week we have been in
correspondence with Mr. Perley with
regard to the offering to the government and the people of France, if
they should desire to accept it. a hospital of fifty beds which we will be
prepared to acquire, equip and maintain. Mr. Perley has been instructed
ti, ascertain the wishes of the French
government with regard to the matter. I believe a similar proposition
has been made by the British government to the preach government. But
in the appalling stress and pressure
ot affairs which confront the government of France at the present time,
the British government have not bwn
