of a few days    possibly a few hours.

London, Aug. 30.���A circle of country 34 miles in length will be swept
of buildings if the order of the military governor of Paris that residents
of "the zone of action" of the French
capital's defending forts burn their
homes in anticipation of a siege is
correctly interpreted here. It Is supposed the order refers to the surbur-
ban territory just beyond the city's
second line of defences, composed of
17 connecting  forts.
These are located in a wide circle
about two miles outside of the inner
wall which surrounds Paris. They He
for the most part among famous sur-
burban towns, such as Neuilly, Versailles. Vincennes. and sweep every
approach to the city. The order probably applies also to the outer circle
of the city's triple line of defence.
These are the most modem of the
forts. They are built of steel and
masonry, and are known to be equipped with the heaviest guns of the
famous   French artillery.
Magnitude ef Defences.
Something of the magnitude of the
defences of Paris is shown by estimates that only an army of half a
million men could hope to invest
them and cut them off from the outside world. Some ot the forts still
bear the name under which they resisted the German assaults in 1870,
but they have been remodelled and
newly equipped many times as the
science of gunnery progressed, and today are considered by military' experts
among the strongest defence works
iu  the   world.
The two outer lines are so placed
that each fort has a cross fire over
the territory swept directly by the
guns of adjoining forts. The result
Is to make attackers to face fire
from both flanks as well as the front
in advancing on any position.
2nd Contingent
To Be Mobilized
London, Aug. 30.. 4.20 p.m.���After
four days of desperate fighting wltb
casualties between 5000 and 8000 the
British army in France ls rested and
ready for the neit great battle, according to announcements today by
Lord Kitchener, secretary of state for
war. In a statement based on a report from Sir John French, commander In chief of the British expeditionary force, tbe secretary says that the
British after struggling against enormous odds, retired to a new line of
defence where they have not been
molested, since Thursday.
Since this fighting ceased the
French on the right and tbe left bave
brought the German attack to a stand
still, lt is declared.
Lord Kitchener's statement, which
was issued through the medium of the
official  information  bureau,  follows:
"Although tbe despatches of Sir
John French as to the recent battle
have not been received, if is possible
now to state, what has been the British share in the recent operations.
A Four Days' Battle.
"There has been, in fact, a four
days' battle���on the 23rd, 24th, 25th
and 26th of August. During the
whole of this period, the British ln

of the French armies, were occupied

"The battle began at lion* on Sunday, during which day and part of

was completely checked by tbe British front.
On Monday, the 24th. the Germans
made vigorous efforts in superior
numbers to prevent tbe safe withdrawal of the British army and to drive
it Into the fortress of Hauberg.
British  Retire Skillfully
"This effort was frustrated by the
steadiness and skill with which the
British retirement was conducted and
as on the previous day, very heavy
losses, far In excess of anything suffered by us, were inflicted dn the
enemy, who in dense formation and
in enormous masses marched forward

The decree calling for the evacuation of the military zone around forts
was a formal notice, although many
engineers recently made a tour of the
environs of the forts and explained
that the residents might be called on
to destroy their property, which was
deemed  an  obstruction.

would lead only to the same conclusion.

The seriousness of the present war and the results that depend entirely upon success to the arms of the allies, are but beginning to be realized
by the people of England, both at home and abroad. It is but now being
brought home to them that this is a war for their very existence���or of
their extermination���If the German war-lord Is successful. He will not be
successful in the end. Let that be now and forever the uppermoat thought
of every Englishman and Canadian. It will not be a success so long as
there is a true son of Old England left standing with strength to fire a shot.
Tbat the grave seriousness of the war was fully realized even before
war was declared, by the able and intelligent men at the head of the British
empire, is being more and more strongly emphasized everyday. Tbeir
statements uttered at the very outbreak of hostilities, and repeated time
and time again, that this was to be a life and death struggle, their statement that hundreds ot thousands of troops to fight under .England's flag
would be required, tbeir thorough, careful and efficient preparation from
the initiative of the strife, all now point to the conviction that the men
whoso hands are guiding the destinies of England realized weeks ago,
as we, tbe people, are beginning to now realize that every possible effort,
at no matter what cost of life or money, must be made to preserve the
balance of power in Europe and clip the wings of the German eagle.
Developments In the war situation during the past forty-eight hours
have been great, and not greatly to the liking of the allies. That the German war plans have been far more successful than was believed possible
have become a fact. The advance of the Oermana has been steady. They
are now within seventy miles of Paris itself, and but yesterday afternoon
one of their big dirigibles flew over the city and caused consternation by
exploding a bomb near the railway station. This by no means indicates
that Paris is as yet beselged, or likely to be for weeks, If at all, but it
does indicate that the German advance should be stopped with all possible speed.
That Kngland is to raise another expeditionary force, and yet another,
is also announced. The call for volunteers has been /esponded to in a manner which makes the heart of every Englishman glow with pride. A suggestion has been made in the house of commons that some sort of conscript measure should be passed, but this was vigorously opposed by Lord
Churchill who declared that such a course would not be entertained except as a last resort, and he did not believe that it would become necessary. The announcement that England is to call upon her native Indian
troops to take part in the present war proves two important things. First
she is not afraid to place her trust and Bhow her faith in the natives who on
many a field have shown their bravery and prowess. And second, so confident is Kngland of the ability of her native troops that she Is not afraid
to pit them against the highly trained troops of the German empire, reported to be the most efficient military organization the wrJHd has ever seen.
While the objective point of the Germany army is Paris, it by no means
indicates that the war will end when that part of her program is attained,
If it is attained. By the time the kajser dines in Paris, the czar of Russia
will be writing his orders under a Berlin date line. Nor will It indicate
that France is at the end of her resources. They may invest Paris, it is
not beyond the possibilities, but to capture the city as they did forty-four
years ago is altogether another proposition, as they will discover.
All authorities agree upon one Important point. Tnat is, that the war
is certain to be greatly prolonged. The end cannot be foretold. And it
is further agreed that England is more in need today than ever before in
her history of every strong arm and brave heart. An urgent appeal is being
made throughout the mother land for all able bodied men to enlist and this
appeal applies to the dominions across the seas as well as to the "tight
little isle."

London, Aug. .0.���An official statement Issued tonight says that ot 1*00
men composing the crews of rive German warships sunk off Heligoland,
only 330 were saved.
The Liberty, one of the British destroyers whicli took part in the battle
off Heligoland was hit bfy a shell
which shattered her mast and tore
away part of ier bridge first of all,
and then smashed her searchlights and
killed ber commander, Lieutenant
Commander Nigel Barttlet and William
Butcher, his signalman. Their deaths
were Instantaneous.
Accounts of the battle say it was
perfect in execution aa well as In
plan. Led by a fearless small detachment, the destroyers crept within
the German lines at dawn between
Heligoland ami the German coast.
Sighted by an Aeroplane.
" An aeroplane sighted them and gave
the news to the Germans, whose destroyers then eame out. The British
destroyers lured the Germans to the
open sea, where other destroyers were
waiting, spread out  in  fanshape.
A small engagement followed and
then the German cruisers came out.
The British light cruiser Arethusa,
after a sighting shot, got her range
splendidly ami hit the foremost gun
of one of tii, German cruisers, demolishing it. The Arethusa then delivered a few broadsides at the enemy.
Her practice was excellent. She hit
a German cruder which at once broke
Into smoke and flames, but soon afterwards a German shot did some damage to the engine room of the Arethusa.
Fought a Grand Fight.
The destroyers Liberty and l.aertz
fought a gram! battle. A shot brought
down the matt of the Liberty. The
l.aertz was hit amidships, a following
shot going through her funnel. Her
forward guns were damaged and she
received also a shell in t'ne dynamo
room and a shot after that which
wrecked her cabin, it was hot work
but at that moment the British light
cruisers and battle cruisers appeared.
It was the moment for which they
had been waiting and their execution
was deadly, The first shot from one
of the British cruisers sank a German
cruiser which had been battering a
The Herman fleet then turned and
fled in the direction of Cuxhaven, but
they were pursued by the British destroyers, which did terrible execution
with their four inch guns.
Many of the Germans landed from
the Hrltish ships after the battle were
wounded by revolver buliets. It is declared that the revolvers were used
by German, officers to prevent their
men surrendering to the British boats
which had put out to save their men

"If the embargo Is lifted it Will cer-,

trade, for as It is we w III have no ,

manager of the "BAT-ADA" Tea com- i
pany when told that a cablegram slat- j
ed that the embargo was to be raised,
"although we aie cutting down all orders to the smallest possible dimension. For instance, we had orders
from Detroit last week for 4..0II0 lbs.
We cut these down to less than 20,-
000 lbs.���so throughout the li. S as
well as Canada. If it is a fact thut
the embargo is to be takiu off it will
still take five weeks to get teas here
from l,ondon, and it may take very
much longer, because of the difficulties of getting steamers to carry.

As to the future of tea, we are Just
as much in doubt as though we were
not in the trude at all. We have never had so much worry and trouble in
our forty years' experience. This lias
been chiefly brought about by abuse
from our customers for not delivering
them their orders in full, when we
