The resistance ol: Belgium has saved France; it gave  Midland time - to organ izc numerous _ forces  it liarvcompelled us to make war for positions  are the words of Dr. Jea'gcr, deputy of the centre in the Reichstag, and recently published m  the.

But i'o gallant defence put up by Belgium  it is admitted that the French-army would  have been swamped, Paris taken,'the French  Western Coast occupied, England unable to  ���������send an army to .the continent aud Germany  thus in possession, of extensive submarine basis would have threatened British shipping even more so than today. Thus we owe our very  life to Belgium. Have we doneenough for  this gallant ally?  On receipt of the,German ultimatum in August 1914, Belgium might have sent a strong  protest, allowed the German hordes to pass  and thought she had done enough.    But No!  After Liege held out. -longer than the most,  sanguine .expected,  after  the  flower  of  the ,  Belgian army had been sacrificed to allow the  mobilization of the Allies, Belgium might have  cr i ed cn o ugh!

After the race for the North Sea, after the  checking of the German advance on the Yser,  the Belgian army which had been is the field  before any other, without reserves to draw  upon, might have called out enough!    But No!  'The whole of Belgium occupied, millions  facing starvation, separate peace, restoration  and compensation were offered King Albert  He might have said: I have done enough.    But  No!  Loyal to his Allies,- helping them to the last  trusting to them to look after his starving  pebple, he fought on for the cause of Humanity.  Can we betray that trust?

There arc some thousands of little orphan children in Belgium who  must be succoured at once The girt o six  pence per day or of about .$3.07 a mon h b  needed for each one of them and anybody  guaranteeing tins-amount for six months or  for one year will receive the name, the address and. if possible, the photograph ot the  liltlo Belgian sufferer that, is being sponsored  THE Cfl I LB HEN'S HEALTH FUND. This  Fuwd looks after the children that have been  weakened by privations. , Most ot the m already show signs of tuberculosis and rickets.  They are taken to Holland where they receive  special treatment and nourishment, and then  sent back to Belgium to make room for others.  How much this^Fund is in need of money can  be fathered by the fact that even before the  decrease in imports, over 10,000 children were  waiting their turn to be taken into Holland."  Any of our readers who wish to contribute to  this Fund can do so by giving the money to  Mrs W.'H. Mathewson, or leaving it at the  Bank of Commerce for her. Since taking up  the work a short time ago she has sent $2o  away; has another $25 ready to send and has  ���������quite a large amount promised. So successful has she b'eeh in "collecting that she will  probably publish at an early date the generous  amounts contributed by those to whom she  has spoken in regard to the question of support of the Fund.  Constitute yourself a "committee of one" and  help to further the cause? The Belgians need  your help.
