Worth Perusing
As a corrective to the alarmist
or pessimist idea that Germany's
specular drives against the more
vulnerable smaller powers engaged in the great struggle are going
to have any more serious effect
in the long run than delaying to
some extent the inevitable victory
of the Allies, the following comment on the situation from the
British military strategical point
of view is worth perusing and
considering:, " Every capable
strategist in the world will understand that Germany is incomparably our strongest enemy.
She is the most formidable military power ever known. We cannot beat her by tickling her extremities; we can beat her only
by striking in a military sense at
her heart. • • • Not the least
of Germany's weaknesses to-day
is that circumstances deprive her
of striking at the hearts of her
principal enemies. She is on the
defensive at every point where it
really matters in the long run.
Military wild goose chases will
not help her on the final showing.
Indeed, this wastage of strength
on her part causes the contrary
of concern to the Allied staffs."

No development of political history in recent years
has been more remarkable
than the tenacity with which
Mr. Asquith held to his post
as the British Premier. His
tact, his knowledge of the
best way to deal with opposition, his vast parliamentary
experience—all these qualities have been again and a-
gain tested. Long before
the war he had demonstrated
that he was one of the most
skilfull premiers that the
British House of Commons
had ever known. When the
Coalition government was
formed, as a consequence of
the war, Mr. Asquith's difficulties were increased but he
seemed able to cope with
them. His undoubted patriotism was exhibited by the
readiness with which he performed unthankful duties,
and by the whole-souled way
in which he devoted himself
to his work- When the history of these fateful years
come to be written; when the
cloudsof prejudice have cleared away, premier Asquith
should fill an honored place
in the record.
It looks as if the Coalition
Government haft failed in
England not so much because
of the divergent temperaments that have torn them
apart, as because a great war
is incombatable with that
form of governmental control that proceeds from democracies. An army in the
field is directed by an absolute dictatorship. It is not
conceivable that it should be
directed in any other-way,
and we may reasonably wonder if an ebsolute dictatorship is not just as essential
in the centre of political power if the army and also the
navy are to receive the support that their existence demands. The old Romans
knew this well and acted upon it, and we have yet to see
an approach to the effectiveness of Roman government
either in peace or war.
There is something incon-
grous and almost grotesque
in the conduct of a way by a
large and loosely-knit body
of men whose whole lives
have unfitted them for the
onerous responsibility they
assume. The military progression of Germany is largely due to a certain unity of
direction in her councils—a
single focus of control and
authority, and individual supremacy that reduces interference and especially unskilled interference to a minimum.
Anthing like, dictatorship
must necessarily be somewhat distasteful to British
people.   But   the   supreme
need of the moment is to win
the war. And there seems
to be no way to win it without placing very large powers
in very few hands.
When Jules Verne wrote
his celebrated novel "Twenty
Thousand Leagues Under the
Sea," it became popular at
once and was translated into
several languages. But its
popularity arose chiefly because it introduced the reader to what was then an unreal and impossible world.
There are readers, as we
know who read novels to admire the actual, almost photographic portrait the author
gives of human life and its
surroundings. They like detail, and psychological analysis. They want things as
they are. But there is a far
larger class of readers of
novels who prefer romance
to actuality. They want fiction that will lift them out of
their immediate surroundings
into a world of unreality. The
popularity of the Family
Herald and other magazines
of its class has been said to
depend on their capability to
enable their readers to im-
magine a differene state of
things from that in which
they live—the servant girl to
fancy herself a lady of title
decorated with diamonds, the
milkman to immagine himself a duke and so on. So
when Verne wrote his story
about a captain and his crew
who submerged themselves
at will and could sail anywhere on any mission they
pleased, the book at once became a "best seller." ' People with a smattering of science said "How rediculoUs."
and even those who yield
themselves to its charm felt
they were reading a sort of
fairy story.
Jules Verne wrote the book
in 1873. Forty-three years
pass, and today we have the
Deutschland coming across
the Atlantic, and numerous
U. boats threading their way
along the green depths on
their errands of destruction.
What seemed to be rediculous
fiction has become fact.
And yet Jules Verne when
he wrote his book was only
following out the line of evolution to its logical end. No
man. ever knew better than
he what had been done in
early days of scientific, re-
search. No author ever
studied the past with more
attention. Jules Verne knew
as early as 1578 inventors
had begun to think about
submarine boats and that in
1620 a Dutch shipbuilder
madaone of wood, covered
it with greased leather, and
took King James I of England a short voyage in it.
Since that time the progress
of the submarine has T)een
slow but effectual. Many
inventors have worked at it
and been disappointed. The

with patents, many of them

Story of the Cave at Banff
VISITORS to Banff in the Rocky
Mountains Park should make it
a point to see the Cave, and in
doing so should not fail to have as guide
the good-natured auld Scotchman who
is in charge. He is always at hand and
stands true to his native heath by continually wearing a Scotch Bonnet. The
guide is over 78 years of age and has
seen service in connection with the Park
in one way or other for over a quarter
of a century, since its inception, in fact.
This Cave, as the guide's story goes,
is the remains of a formally active geyser
being at one time replete with grotesque
stalactites, stalagmites, and othei subterranean wonders. The visitor in the
early days entered through a rough
rocky entrance or doorway into a lone
dark gruesome tunnel and was conducted
by tlie Scottish Guide throutrh a length
of darkness and along its winding course
whose walls were the bold rock worn
away in ages past by the running water,
until the cave is reached. But now one
enters through a magnificent plate-glass
double door.into a fine large rotunda
supported by fine pillars. From this,
after registering in the book placed on
the desk for the purpose the tunnel
proper is entered through another door.
The bottom of the tunnel is now of concrete which covers the overflow from the
basin as it runs to the large outer pool.
The tunnel is now lighted by electricity
which is another of the up-to-date innovations. The sides and top are, however, still in the regular form, being
rocky and rough. Reaching the Cave
the guide informs you that it is only a
wider chamber where deposits of sulphur
have coated the lime-stone with crystal
veneer, which in the days ol yore shone
in the lamp light like so many precious
stones. But the whole story of the Cave
is best told by the guide, he of the Highland accent. After making sure that
the ladies are at hand, or, seated on the
bench for that purpose, he says:—
Now, if you will kindly sit down and
give me your quiet attention for a few
minutes, I will tell you the story of the
cave, and in that story I think you will
find an answer to all the questions that
curiosity might prompt you to ask, and
if you have any further questions to ask-
after I am through, fire them at me; I
shall endeavour to answer them to the
best of my ability.
'It was at one time an active geyser
spouting water and mud up through the
orifice (pointing to the hole at the top
through which day-light can be seen).
The whole of this cavity was at one time
full of water and gas and the gas kept
the water always in a state of turmoil,
tearing at the rock and converting it
into mud and when the heat got a
certain intensity up it went through the
vent, sending a stream of water and mud
about 100 feet in the air. Then the
cold air rushed in and filled the vacuum
and on went that grinding as before
until it heated up the cold air; then
away it spouted again. This continued
to repeat itself for thousands of years
until it made that breach in the wall
that we came in by, when
Out it rushed with a great roar
And then it spouted never more.
I -illustrate the death of the geyser—to
bring it up to modern times and modern
fashions thus:—It underwent an operation for appendicitis; the operation was
successful, but the patient died and it
has been sending forth a strong sul-
phurious odor ever since. That was the
last of the geyser.
If the guide has been "entranced" by
the visitor he is taking care of, he may
vary the introduction, and express himself, as was his habit in earlier days,
after this fashion:—
"Ma freends," he would say, as he
threw the light of his oil lamp now here
now there, on the glittering walls.
'Ye're juist gettin' a faint squint o'
what the Pearly Gates and Jasper Walls
:ire like, but ye remember how, in ye'r
Bunyan, the Shepherds' o' the Delec
table Mountains showed Pilgrims a hole
in the hillside which was a short cut
from the Pleasant Land of Beulah to the
Bottomless Pit; and so here, I regret to
inform ye, these walls land direct to
where ye'll get a whiff and a sniff of the
Brimstone Lake. Ye'll observe ye are
now in the very heart o' the geyser.
This whole chamber was scooped out by
the awful force of water and gas. See
how the giant fretted his prison walls,
tearing off chunks of rock and grinding
them to mud. The gas kept the watei
in constant turmoil. Friction from the
water condensed steam, created heat,
and when the heat got to a certain in-.
tensity, skyward it flew out of the orifice
o' its own makin',sendin' mud and watet
many feet in the air with a terrible roar,
then the cold air rushed in and filled the
vacuum and the war of Titans went on
as before; but when he wounded himself
in the side,—when the pressure tore that
breach in the wall by which we entered
—then the gas and water escaped with a
roar and it spouted "nevermore." He
juist gave himself a "solar plexus" and
knocked himself out of business; he 'en
smote himself under the fifth rib and
gave up the ghost. Like Samson, when
he got his locks shorn, his strength had
left him. The Cave underwent an
operation for appendicitis; the operation
was successful, but the patient died and
has been smelling like rotten eggs ever
since. I have observed there is a dame,
oi Delilah, connected wi' a' catastrophies
i'this world: the Delilah in this case was
"Dame Nature,"
Once seeing a young lady from New
York looking bewildered at this juncture
Scotty asked her if she had ever read the
story of Samson. To his dismay she
replied "No." "What," he exclaimed
incredulously, "never read the story o'
the strong man, Samson?" (Scotty
didna' tell her whaur the story was to be
found, ye ken). "Oh," she replied, a
light dawning upon her, "you mean the
strong man Sandow, of New York, I
know him." It was some time after
relating this incident before Scotty re
covered sufficiently to ejaculate "Ma
conscience, losh preserve us, puir Lassie'
The next question is, what is the temperature of the water ? The temperature
of the water is 90, but there is quite a
stream of ordinary cold water coming in
from some stream in the mountains
We have never located the fountain
head, but it is increasing in volume
every year, and it lowers the temperature to about 80. The depth of the
water is about four feet, they used to
bathe in here up to about twelve years
Looking at the bottom of the water,
you see a number of dark spots: these
are holes full of quicksand and these
holes are getting larger and larger every
year. The friction of the water and gas
combined, are eating awav the rock
and enlarging the holes. Those who
couldn't swim were continually stepping
into them and getting beyond their
depths, so it was considered wise to stop
the bathing before any accident happened. I bathed in there about twenty-
seven years ago, and there was only one
hole at that time of any consequence.
You can see it situated at the opposite
side; it is about the circumference of a
cart wheel. We used to have a rope
stretched across from one side to the
other to guard against stepping into that
hole, for down through that hole, you
can thrust a pole about ten feet long and
not find the bottom. All the rest of the
holes that are in front now, were so
small then that an ordinary Chicago
foot (they say the ladies have very large
feet you know) might have spanned
them, but now a Scotch foot can t (they
are said to be very much larger), so we
stopped the bathing. We couldn't afford to have any Scotch people drowned'
they are so very .precious, and so very
scarce, and yet, go where you like, you
will find them (the last Scotchman to
bathe in this pool, left his footprints on
"the sands of time,") which you can see
down there. The foot seems to me to
be about a number 16. a decent sized
foot—the owner of a foot like that in
his ain country may well declare, as
Rob Roy does in the play, "My foot is
on my native heath, and my name's
McGregor," he would have a good grip
on his native heath with ten feet like
Max O'Rell, brilliant French wit (I
used to call him the Mark Twain of
France when he was alive), died quite a
number of years ago. He was a celebrated humorous lecturer. Four of ht»
lectures were very popular, "Jonathan
on the Americans"—"John Bull on the
English"—"Sandy on the Scotch"—
and "Pat on the Irish." He was giving
a, lecture in Inverness, the Capital of
the Highlands on one occasion, and he
paused in the midst of his lecture and
said, "I have made a remarkable dis*
covery since I came amongst you Scotch
people, I have found out how it was that
you adopted the kilts as a raimant in
place of the trousers," then he made
another pause, and during that pause
you could have heard the proverbial
pin drop. Every one was listening so
intently to hear what that remarkable
discovery was. Then he proceeded with
a loud voice, for it was a large hall, and
it was a large audience, "Because your
feet were so large you couldn't get them]
down through the trousers.
