RED CROSS APPEAL
MADE TO FARMERS
Hit. J.AMES  W.  ROBERTSON    HAS
ISSUED A   CALL   FOR   AID
EOR   HOSPITALS,  ETC,
Strong Appeal Made to Agriculturists
to Lend tlle Assistance
Needed.
When Ihe history of thi,- war
comes to be written the valor of the
British regiments which-were rushed
to the front :tt once and upon whom
fell the brunt of tbe heaviest lighting
against odds will make up one of the
mosl thrilling chapters. Thc censorship has been too strict to enable the
correspondents to tell the Britisii
Empire of the magnificent devotion
of the British Expeditionary Force
during those first few weeks, and of
the price which they paid in holding
back forces rive or six times tlieir
own numbers at Ypres and during
the retreat from   "Ions.
The writer in the currenl Blackwood's Magazine, who was attached
to one of the Britisii brigades as an
interpreter, tells of two brigades
which lost, more than seventy-five
per cent, of tlieir strength during
the few days' fighting at that time.
The fighting strength of these two
brigades was about 'S.000 men. By
the time they were relieved by lhe
reserves only 1,400 officers and men
remained unhurt. The loss among
the officers was particularly frightful. One regiment at the conclusion
of the fighting was commanded by a
subaltern, the only unwounded officer, and of the whole regiment
only a handful of men were lit for
service. These two brigades were
holding a position against 160,000
German troops, and at that time the
British were weak in artillery.
If the censorship had permitted
the publication of detailed stories of
Hie earlier lighting, with iis thou-

.1 u ';:.!: li-'.- Itals are now at work
in France and Canadian units are
operating  from   the   firing   line    as
casually and resting stations, to
base hospitals at -["report, a few
miles trom Boulogne, entailing Immense organization work. Orders,

Bril ain   and   France;   it  needs  more
money to pay more Red Cross
nurses; il needs niore money, and
more things made by women, to supply to Clearing Hospitals, Base Hospitals, and Recovering Hospitals.
"I appeal to farmers to send me
I sums from "1 to $50 during the first
week in May. Every $50 provides
one additional hospital bed with tlie
giver's name over it. By .'.ending me
about $10,000, you would serve
your country well, bring credit to
yourselves, and make nil of us very
proud of you. For the sake of the
wounded boys, make the gift substantial. It will be an investment
towards the recovery of some Canadian soldier who stood in our stead
that ur cause might be upheld.
"Faithfully  your  friend,
".IAS. W. ROBERTSON',
"Chairman, Red Cross   Society at
Ottawa."
Dr. Robertson is still best known
to the farmers of Canada as Professor Robertson. He began Ills official
public service at the Ontario Agricultural College nearly thirty years
ago. Twenty-live years ago lie went
to Ottawa as Dairy Comml loner

"nt to France. Tiie Doctor makes
;. slight reference to the success* of
the Canadian hospitals, these having attracted the .wannest praise
from the War Department, and ventures the opinion that when the bis-
lory of the war is written the medical services will receive special men-
lion.
As to the progress of the campaign and the possibilities of an
early conclusion of the conflict, Dr.
Doherty declares that he is one of
those who would predict that the
beginning of the end is now being
witnessed, and that the month of
.June, even if it does not mark the
technical finish of the war, will find
hostilities suspended, pending the
discussion of terms of peace. "Let
me ask you," he writes, "what, in
spite of .what Germany started out
to do with a rush, do you find to be
tho actual position today? After
seven months ef war, Paris. Warsaw and Calais remain uncaptured

TWO   LEADERS   CONTRASTED.
If sir Wilfrid Laurier had adopted the attitude towards follow
his who used iheir positions for
their own profit that Sir Robert
Borden has towards .Messrs. Foster
and Garland! ii would have been
better for bis party and belter for
the country, says the Edmonton
Journal.
It takes a courageous leader to
denounce wrongdoing in his own
ranks, but all must recognize that
this is the only hope of putting an
end to it. ln lhe past both sides
have been iu the habit of using
strong language regarding the offences of the other fellows and restricting themselves to this.
The theory on which this policy
lias been based Is that of a prominent American politician, who, on
being told that a certain man was a
rascal, replied: "Of course he is, but
don't Eorgel he's our rascal."
Sir Rober! Bordi " has repudiati d
this entirely and is pr< pared to condemn and to punish all who have
looted  or  tried   to    loot    the   :

There is no official recognition
given to the subject of Arbour Day
in British Columbia, although then
■ ins no doubt that public opinion
. blishmenl as a holiday and iti oh ace. The observant ..- of Arbour I lay should be general throughoul this country. There
is need in every part of Canada for
the education and instruction which
Arbour Day represents. The day
should be observed as a public holiday, at a time must suited to the
climatic conditions of the locality.
Public recognition should be given
to Arbour Day, and the planting and
protection of shade trees, the preparation of flower and vegetable
gardens, and the thorough cleaning
up of homes and surroundings
should be advocated as special du-f
ties for the day.

many opportunities, for much kindness nnd for warm appreciations,
But they are his debtors too. Anil
he now reminds them of that for the

put to the test, but look out tor
enormous casualties, for in this war
♦whenever we hear Ihat nn objectivi
has been attained, we may. be sure
that sacrifice lias been great.
"The British and French have now
the men, the guns, the ammunition,
aud a perfect ly organized transport.
They are going to drive their way
through if it takes ten Walerloos to
do it, and they will do all this within  the next four months.
"The battle of Neuve Chapelle
last week, where our Canadian
troops did so well, was a far greater
battle than Waterloo. There were
48,000 British, Including Canadians,
and excluding artillery, actually
fighting, The Cormans lost 19,000
men, while the British losses were
9,000. It appears that the victory
was due to the splendid concentration of artillery against that part of
the Coalman front selected for the
attack. This was followed by a
splendid charge ol infantry, including three Canadian battalions.

'He is so good a soldier one might

regretfully.

into a considerable sum of money,
for whicli only a small return can lie
obtained from. a trench; wasteful
because when only one man from a
section can he left to look alter the
horses they cannot be adequately
groomed or exercised, so that while
the ranks are being reduced by the
wrong sort of work, the horses are
selling out of condition owing t.
lack of the righl sort.
The Britsh cavalry bore the brunt
of some of the most exciting lighting in Flanders, when every man
had to be made use of, wastefully
or otherwise, and splendidly as they
acquitted themselves, indeed, jusl
because they (lid so splendidly, the
work told upon their proper efficiency, which they have only recently
been able to retrieve.
Before very long, however, there
again will be a fine cavalry force at
Sir John French's disposal, and Interest is concerned in the use to
(..which it may be put. Called upon to
undertake tbe most exciting work
from the very moment it detrained
at the front, and at a season when it;
was some way from having arrived
at its hardest condition, it responded to every test with which it could
have been tried.
Very noticeable in thai connection, too, is the different regard
which the various arms extend to
their opponents, The airman, though
he lias established a superiority'on
which every onlooker has comment-
id, says very little about il himself,
Indeed, he even depreciates too hasty
deductions from whal  lias   ba| ne l

back again before they could make
up their minds to take us on," and
from . every side came confirmation
of this curious disinclination to assume tlie particular offensive which
was aboul all one did expect from
German cavalry. Horsemen one
doubted them to be, horse masters
one knew they wore not; on foot
tlieir performances were not worth
considering.
Though on the retreat from Mons
they had in front, of them what they
were good enough to regard not only I
as a shaken but as n beaten enemy,
they found that modern actions do
not favor the maintenance of masses
of cavalry at a convenient distance
o await tbe moment of victory. After thrusting their nose on several
occasions painfully and most unwittingly into the fire of the foe, they
adopted measures of less drastic concentration, nnd from that moment
apparently they were lost.
They  were  facing  men  who  could
light in any fashion, but with a predilection   for  fighting  if  possible  on
their   horses.     The    hesitating   German offered to such  inclination   (he
very  tai'gel   It desired.  Nothing is so
