LORD ROSEUEIIT ON THK WAR
Lord Rosvhery said at Town Hall: -

as during the week following the
battle of Tugela River when parry
politics disappeared absolutely and
gave way to a passinnato le-sulvo to
assist the country iu her honr of nee*,1.
Whatever foreigners may say, tbey
have not got to the bottom of old
England yat. This test of the eharact-
er ot tht British pro-pie wilt Atone
counterbalance our losses. The reverses
of the war have taught the country
thot the        Empire
united Empire. The war will be
cheap, if it tenches tho nation tbnt it
has lived too much from hand to
month, and that it must place things
on a scieutifU'. or mcthoiltcal basis, fn
commerce, education and war, Great
Britain is not methodical aud not
scientific.
"The task abend is tha greatest
which ever lay before s natron and
wilt occupy the present Goverum-Mit
and many fnt uro Governments. But
it will have to l�� faced. Tho country
has yet to bring the war to a triumph
ant conclusion. Whon that is done It
must set to work and put the Empire
on a better footing and strive to make
it realize that the British Ideal of an

The sprem! war correspondent uf

Dec 50th says:��� 'There ia one thing
which I have noticed, and which I
think bits been noticed by the Imperial
ufacers holding high pTiitious, au4
that Is th-.'1+t link strength end adaptability if our boys and their willing*
ties* to do nny and alt kinds of work,
they are called upon to do without
grouching or eompUmvng. For in*
atanoo, IT there is a railway siding to
be put In and our regiment is near, we
are always ehosen to dothe work. It
it is necessary te have trains loaded in
a hurry, the Canadians ara usually
chosen to do the work, Thi* willing**
ne** to be of use is gaining for us s��
enviable -reputation at headiyiartsrft,
for such willingness is not always-
found among 1 he Imperial troops when
forced to remain behind on line of
conrmnnicntion when tire work iti
hard and anxious, and the chance of

height of the position, uthough some
point out that it muy lack udequate
gun p atforui to resiht artillery fire
from the two extended sides.
It is not likely that General Warren
will .et go anytning he i ohm and news
of forth*r necee is calmly awaited.

WASHINGTON RED TAPE.
The   Kind   That   Ie   Used   In   Untie
Sam'H Dcpnrtnieiita.
"The thing Unit Intereefed uie molt
when I arrived Id Washington the first
time was red tape," observed the wife
of a prominent senator, "nud though In
the many yearn I huve been lu Washington 1 have seen red tupo lu muuy
forms 1 do not know that 1 have got
over It since. The red tape I refer to is
not the circuitous luuuuer of transact-
lug public or governmental business,
wbich has been so often that subject of
criticism and narratives of official life,
but the real linen red tape Itself.
"lt bas beeu the custom of the seuute
postoffice for many years tc send senators' mall to their private residences
or rooms tied up in a bundle with a
piece of red tape, though now nnd then
It happens that the mall comes to us
tied up with a piece of string.
"The tirst piece of red tape tbnt ever
reached me In this way I sent back to
my home as a souvenir of Washington.
For several months I scut pieces of red
tape, so you can see how It gathers. I
bave kept up the distribution of this
red tape ever since, and lu tbe ten or
more years of my residence In Washington, ob may. be Imnglued, I have
sent off a great deal. Besides this. 1
have plenty to tte up all the bundles In
my bouse. My stock 1 keep In a vase
on the mantel of our Bitting room. The
servants and the members of my fain
Uy when tbey want a string always
kuow where to find one.
"I confess that the red tape hus beeu
of value to me In ninny ways, lu my
travels In my owu state 1 Und that tbe
little red tape souvenirs I huve distributed are kept by those 1 have sent
tbem to in tbe same spirit tbat caused
me to send tbem. aud 1 assure* you It Is
very pleasant to be constantly remembered by and through them, even If I
nm uot remembered In any other way.
I have, however, seen enough of the
other klud���tbe bow not to do It klud-
of red tape of official life and am not
bo much enamored with It. The red
linen tupe will do whut Is required of
It aud in a positive and prompt wuy,
wbich, 1 um sorry to sny. cannot be
said or that which Is officially known
ee 'red tape.' Oue Is a thing: the other
Is a system. 1 defend the former while,
like thousands of others, I decry the
latter.
"When a girl. 1 came to Washington
on a visit to my nncle, who was a department official. I spent part of a
day lu his room In the treasury department. My uncle's desk. I remember,
was plied up wilh Ihe papers connected witb a well known private claim.
They were tied up with red tape, tbe
linen kind, then and have been tied up
equally as strong by red tape of Ibe official kind, which is uot tape, but an
Iron chain, ever since. How muuy
years ago? Tbat does not matter, but
It Is as long as the 'ordinary lifetime,'
as calculated by tbe Insurance companies. Recently 1 visited tbe same oflice In tbe treasury department. By
a coincidence tbe same claim was nnder consideration, and tbe same papers
were piled up on a desk. Tbe official
In charge was unwrapping and reading
them, as was my uncle wben I first
visited the department as a girl. Be
has been dead over 3<> years, but tbat
claim Is apparently no nearer settlement than It was then. An Iron chain
Instead of red linen tape has bound
that claim up. Tbe original claimants
are dead, and their successors are near
Ing their graves with old age."-Wasb-

Wben m Ship Sprlncs m Leak.
On tbe occasion of a ship springing
a leak ber pumps are set lo work to
get the water out as fast as It comes
In. Instead of this It Is suggested by
a writer In Tbe Amerlenn Machinist
that air pumps be used to force air
lulo tbe leaky compartments and thus
rorce the water back through tbe bole
where It entered. There Is. It Is remarked, a means of expelling water
from tbe tilled compartments so obvious as to render It a matter of wonder tliat engineering skill has uot put
forward the plan, simply to close the
hatches of the Howled compartments
aud drive tbe water out by forcing
air in. Nor would It make ibe slightest difference how large tbe bole might
be lu tbe bottom, as the water would
be expelled and kept oqt on tbe same
principle ai the old fashioned diving
ball.

feeling of well being explains the widespread liking iu mau and beast for
stimulating substances. This liking,
amoiinliug often tu a craving. I* tbe
expression of a great physiological
principle, When health Is perfect,
when the blood is well provided with
its |)i*0|ter stimulants ami not overcharged witli depressants, there is uo
craving for extraneous sti inula tits, such
as alcohol, teu or coffee, hut when the
blood Is defective in the oue or surcharged with Uie otlier then Is felt the
desire for the glass ut wine or the cup

in order to olivlute this desire the
body should lie kept at the highest level uf health. Tiie more perfect the
bealth the more perfect will be the
composition of the blood in respect to
both physiological stimulants uml deleterious toxins. A blood properly constituted lu these uud other respects
will exercise a gentle xtimuluul action

HEALTHY,
HAPPY GIRLS.
Healthy,  happy girls often   become
languid and despondent, from no apparent
cause, in the early days of their womanhood.     They drag along, always   tired,
never hungry, breathless and with palpi-
tating hearts after slight exercise, so that
to merely walk up stairs is exhausting.
Sometimes a short, dry cough leads to the
fear that they are going into consumption.
Doctors tell them they are anaemic���which
means   that   they have too little blood.
'Are you like that?
More pale and anaemitJ people have been made bright, active
and strong by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills than any other medicine.
