London, Dec. 16.-It is officially
announced that three German
cruisers started bombarding Scarborough this morning. Great
excitement prevails.
London, Dec. 16. - The German
warships today shelled British
ports of Hartlepool and Scarborough on the North Sea. British
warships were sent out to repel
the invaders, and a naval engagement is now going on. The admiralty has made the following
announcement through the government press bureau: German
movements of some importance
are taking place in the North Sea
this morning. Scarborough and
Hartlepool have been shelled,
Our flotillas have been engaged
with the enemy at various points.
The situation is developing.
London, Dec, 16.—A despatch
from York says that residents of
Scarborough were thrown into a
panic by the bombardment. Hundred* of them rushed to the railway station where they crowded
aboard trains just leaving for Hull
and other points. This telegram
said that cannonading began at
7 a.m, The morning was hazy,
but despite the fog the German
gunners had no difficulty in locating their ranges. The rumor
went round that the Germans
were going to land troops, which
increased further the terror of the
fugitives.
London, Dec. 16. -The German
ships bombarding the coast were
soon under fire from British torpedo boats and destroyers, which
steamed out to attack them. The
Germans then went into action
amidst the destroyers, but continued to throw shells against the
land.
Newcastle, Dec. 16.—Bombard
ment of Hartlepool began at 8
a.m. Several British battleships
have arrived and others are on
the way. Gas works have already
been set on fire. Several rows of
houses we-e destroyed and a
mini her of persons killed.

cruisers have been sunk and that

A MERRY CHRISTMAS.
~^j^I E are glad it is ours once more to greet
5& our readers with a Bright and Merry
Christmas. It seems but yesterday that we sent a
like message to you, and yet a year has flown by.
May your homes be bright, the children of your
household happy, and the great wish and hope of
your hearts in abundant measure be realized.
system of Government-owned
elevators would be established in the West. The
Government has rapidly carried out this policy.
Today there is the big Port Arthur elevator
to handle the east-bound traffic, and the Vancouver
elevator will handle the Pacific-bound traffic, while
plans are being prepared for the Port Nelson
elevator. In the interior are magnificent elevators
at Moose Jaw and Saskatoon, completed and in
operation, while a third is under construction at
Calgary.. In addition, this system will be added
to as the business develops.

spirit of generosity pervades the Yule-
r-i:? tide atmosphere. It is known and practiced
at no other season of the year except at Christmas.
It is felt in every city, in every town, in every
village, in the entire country. People are inclined
to be more thoughtful. Men manifest desires to
spread good cheer; women weave little acts of love,
kindness and devotion into Christmas good will;
children cherish their companions and fortunes.
Persons unconsciously instil into each other a
desire to distribute happiness everywhere. It all
comes on the wings of that indefinable thing, understood by few, but referred to by many, as the
.®>N Order-in-Council, passed recently, set
•W& aside $1,000,000 to provide seeed grain for
settlers in the western crop failure district. A
further sum of $150,000 was also granted toward
the maintenance of these settlers through the
winter. Previous to this the Government had
taken every possible precaution that no hardship
would follow the crop loss. Through the Dominion Lands' agencies and the R. N. W. M.P., a thorough knowledge of the requirements was obtained
and these provided.
