The  Flower Girl's Escape !  "Oh, that flower girl!" cried Lord  Ambrose; and even in the midst of  the shock that this announcement  caused him, Hugh was conscious of ;\  look of almost sly and furtive relief  Lord Ambrose showed as lie spoke, as  if he regretted his late exclamation  and were glad of a chance to change  the subject. "I knew* she had something to do with it,*' said Lord Ambrose, "tell him to fetch her up."  . A big policeman appeared, holding  by her wrist the Rower girl, who looked as calm and iniperturable as ever,  it gave Hugh the most strange sensation to see her small -wrist, held in the  policeman's great red paw. Looking  at him she smiled slightly and he felt  that he ������as trembling. Luckily the  others were staring their hardest at  her, and so failed to notice his agitation, which in a moment he had conquered.  ���������'The shameless baggage." staid the  cools-, looking at her severely; "hasn't  she got an awful, wicked, depraved  low face?"  "No wonder I felt ail in a tremble-  when I saw her this morning, coming  here pretending to sell her flowers as  bold as you like," said the housemaid,  who had followed upstairs after the  policeman and his charge.  "Ah," said the policeman, "here  under pretence of selling Sowers this  morning, eh?    That is important."  The flower girl made a curtesy to  Lord Ambrose, one to the cook tliat  visibly propitiated that important  functionary, one to Hugh that without  as messenger and who had returned ���������  for his second shilling. ���������      - j  "Which then," said the policeman,}  eyeing the small boy with severity; "I  stopped, and just "bolting round the  corner on the other side of the street  was this h^re woman, so I ran across  and tooked her. ,  "You see," observed the flower girl  meekly, "it was so much more convenient to arrest me at that corner,  than the two great, big, black wen  at the other corner."  "Look here, girl," said the policeman hotly. "I don't want no impudence from you. It was just that I was  nearer you, that was all."  ' Oh, 1 thought you' we're nearer to  them, sir," said the flower girl;  "but  when 1 saw them they frightened me i  dreadfully, i wished 1 was a man, so  that big black negroes wouldn't frighten me���������but perhaps it is the uniform  that makes you so brave, sir," she  added with an admiring look up iu the  policeman's face.  "ISfsver ndnd that," interrupted Lord  Ambrose sharply; "why were you running away at all?"  "I saw her by the gate," said Hugh,  slowly aud speaking with an .effort  that made him wonder to find it neces-  he produced absently a couple of sovereigns at which he looked in a meditative manner.  The constable fell with his story  'unite readily. Ho folt somehow that  the flower gixTs story repeated to his  superiors would not be likely to win  j for  him  their  enthusiastic  approval,  PROFESSOR HAD VISION OF WA.v  so he-contented .himself with  the names and addresses of all present, writing down tho information* in  a big pocket book. When it came to  the flower girl's turn she gave her  name as Betsy Jones, and her address  us  somewhere  in  Batterseu,  "And please may I go now?" she  asked when this ceremony was completed.  ���������'If there is no charge, I suppose tho  young woman may'go, my lord?" said  the  policeman,  looking at Lord  Am-  sary;   "I  saw  her   by   the   gate,   and 4 orose  she bent down to see if it wore locked, i     ..You dou>t inteml t0 let hev        Uko  and then she ran off. | that?" cried Hugh, "how do you know  -Ah,     st.id   the   policeman     with i the name aU(l acltlrests she gave are  great satisfaction, "that settles her, L  think  to ute i  his knowing why made the blood rush  to his cheeks, and then she said:  "I tried to sell my flowers all down  tills street this moraine;. Why is it im-  vortant that I  came here, too?"  She addressed this question to the  policeman, who answered with au official severity and brevity;  "Because it is."  "Oh," said the flower girl.  "You see," explained the. policeman,  who apparently felt that this "Oh" of  hers required a further answer, "that  proves you was here."  "Oh, I understand now, sir," said  the flower girl meekly, "my being  here this morning proves that I was  here this morning.-   Yes, sir."  You.will come along  station, my dear."  The flower girl pointed an accusing  finger : t Ktigh  '.'He frightened me so," she complained. "I was coming down the  street when the gate opened and those  br; black men rau out. I was so  frightened, and 1 can't think how this  gentleman"���������she paused to curtesy to  the policemau���������"was so brave aud  bold the way he ran after them���������  : though it was me he happened to  catch instead of them, somehow cr  another."  "You get on with what you've got  to say, my girl," said the policeman,  rather red in the face, "and never  mind me."  "Then he came," asid the flower girl,  pointing again at Hugh, "and .he took  hold of the gate and shook it terribly,  and I made sure he was mad and  they had locked him in. So I just  looked to see if the gate was really  locked and then rau away, too, and  the policeman ran after me; and I am  | correct?"  "If you will come with me, sir," said  the flower girl with a curtsey, "you  will see for yourself if I have told the  truth."  "Why, so I will, then," said Hugh,  looking at her steadily, but he was  disconcerted when she turned away  her head and smiled.  " There was some more talk, but the  housemaid was the only person therfe  desirous of seeing the flower girl detained in custody, and the housemaid  was in a i.opeless minority. The cook,  won by curtseys, was openly on the  flower girl's side; the policeman,  aware of extra sovereigns in his  pocket, wished only to make sure that  this superiors should not hear her version of her capture and the escape of  the two negroes; Lord Ambrose, so  suddenly amenable to his valet's least  hint, appeared anxious only to get rid  of her; while Hannah- himself, under  pretense of giving the boy who had  acted as messenger some fruit and  cake in addition to his shilling, had  I slipped away with him in the kitchen  sure if I were a policeman I would   As for Hugh he kliew not what he del  much rather arrest one small girl tnan   sire(L and knew ouly that Ms blood  The  policeman,  ielt  that  this   was ��������� accomplice  two big black men any day���������they  might have turned nasty about it, and  of course I could only submit."  Having finished her story she put  on a resigned look and curtseyed to  every one in turn, including the cook,  wholookeu half inclined to curtsey  back, but contented herself with smiling instead.  "Of course, if the gentleman frightened her like that," said the policeman, looking severely at Hugh, "it  is no wonder the poor girl runned  j away, and made me think she was an  tingled in his veins at the idea of  wandering away into the heart of mysterious and lonely London by the side  Warned England to Prepare Against  Prussia's Ambition to Become;: /.  Dominant World Power  Since the private individuals in any  civilized country do not hate the private individuals of any Other civilized  country, why are governments hostile  to one another? Why are not nations  controlled by the influences that control individuals? Would not the question of war or peace, if submitted to  a referendum of all the people, have  prevented any modern war? Are  groups of men prompted by motives  and led by forces that do not move individual men? Is it true that for mystical reasons men . are sane, kindly,  .humane individually, and insane,  cruel, inhuman collectively?  Naive, tiuestions, perhaps, but they  lie behind much of the discussion of  the causes of this ghastly fratricide  that has torn civilization apart. If, indeed it be true that the destiny is  guided not by human intelligence or  human-will tut. by a blind, unconscious, unknowable, irresistible fores,  in whose hands nations and races are  only play things, then efforts to elude  their fate are as vain and foolish: as  would be an attempt to stop a cyclone  or an earthquake.  That thought is one o������ the many  striking- things in a striking booK  just now in vogue���������a fragmentary and  unfinished ana one-sided book, as suggestive for what it omits as for what  it contains, a brave and logical and  brilliant book, written last year by the  late J. A. Cranio, professor of modern  history in Queen's college, London. Its  colorless title, "Germany and England," might well have been "The  Necesity and the Beneficence of War."  Somewhat thus runs the gifted author's argument:  England should seek to understand  Germany, of whose history, literature,  temper and motives she is densely ignorant. Especially should Englishmen  read Trietschke and learn from him  Prussia's spirit and aims, her animosity and contempt for England.  "World dominion or downfall" has long  been Prussia's slogan. Pacificism, a  growing force in English literature  and politics, is a fatal delusion, a  specious and glittering beauty, a vain  ideal, followed by "nerve cranks." In  Europe, "every advance in politics or  religion has been a'ttended by war."  Advance ' without war in the future  will be as impossible as in the past.  And war is not wholly evil. It assumes forms that sometimes are  "dazzling in their beauty, sometimes  are wrapt in a kind of transcendental  ; wonder," In the heroism displayed in  ���������a  I WHEN BUYS HGYEi$tST  8NSSST ON H/^IHO  AGS       ������  of this strange flower girl.

So he  contented himself with telling her not  to be impudent���������but he said this  quite mildly, for after all she had  called him "sir"  twice over.  "But why did you arrest her?" asked Hugh.  "There are two niggers," explained  the policeman, "what ran by me in  such a hurry that I thought they was  up to no Lood. So I called to 'em to  stop, but instead of stopping they  doubled round a corner, and just then  a boy yelled out I was wanted at  Tewxton house most immediate."

"Well, now rou have her," said the  housemaid, who, standing just behind,  had not received any curtsey, "I hope  you will keep her���������the low thing."  "For my part," said the cook, "I  don't see what you took her for���������she  seems a most respectful mannered  young female."  "I took the young lady on suspicion  only," observed the policeman. "Do  you charge her, my lord;'  "Certainly," said Lord Ambrose,  "I'll swear she was in it."  "But what do you charge her with?"  asked Hugh.  "If I might venture to suggest," said  a now voice, thrt of the valet, Hannah,  who had now appeared on the scene,  looking a little pale but otherwise  showing no signs of the rough handling he had recently received; "the  constable should be asked to retire,  my lord, for I am sure there is nothing to charge anybody with, beyond a  stupid drunken freak."  Lord Ambroso looked round sharply, and Hannah made him a quick  imperative sign to approach that his  master obeyed instantly. For a moment or two they whispered and then  Lord Ambroso turned, and said like a  man repeating by note what another  had told him to say:  "Well, yes, constable, I don't think  there is really anything on e could  really charge anybody with���������probably  it was a drunken freak."  "Do you call an attempted robbery  a drunken freak?" asked Hugh atton-  ished. Ho mntlo a stop towards Lord  Ambrose and whispered in his ear  as completely as though she had never  existed.  After a little more discussion so it  was arranged, and Hugh,' with' the  flower girl by his side, went out of.  the house and down the drive and out  of the postern-gate. They went to-  ] gether to the end of the street and  ther-3 the flower girl- made to turn to  the left.  "But Battersea is over there," said  Hugh, pointing to his right where the  river lay. ���������-  "So it is," she agreed cheerfully,  "how clever of you to know that."  "You said you lived tin e," observed  Hugh, nearly as red in the face as  the policeman had been."  "One says so many things, doesn't  one?" she remarked confidentially;  "but do you know I am glad that you  are coming with me?"  "Why?" he asked quickly.  "Because    I should  not feel  quite  o by myself," she answered, "with  that  man- Hannah   following  behind  and trying not to be seen."  "Hannah following us?" asked Hugh  quickly, and frowning. "Nonsense."  "Well, see," she said, and drew him  sharply round the corner of a street  they had just come to and into the  dark doorway of a shop that was now  closed. ���������  They only waited there an instant  and then steps wee heard approaching; swift, furtive steps. A moment  <��������� Hannah himself hurried round  the corner, evidently supposing they  were just ahead of him.  "Ask him why ho is following us?"  prompted tho flower girl in Hugh's  ear.  This had been Hugh's own impulse  and ho acted on it on tho instant.  Jumping out of tho doorway ho called to Hannah, who started, first seemed inclined to run, and then turned  back.

It  is a.mysterious force that makes men  spurn ease and comfort and lifts life  above life. ~  It is, however, possible to deiecl the  controlling idea of Avar���������the' idea of  empire.    World empire is the stake.  Germany has consciously    visualized  the idea.   Treitschke was its prophet.  He was  one of the greatest    of all  Germans, as Lord Salisbury was the  greatest of modern Englishmen. Professor Cramb's admiration for Trietschke is unbounded.  More than any  other German he was responsible for  anti-English sentiment in the Fatherland.    His teachings,  that England's  sun is setting and Germany's rising,  that there can be no rest for Germany  until England is destroyed, have become the gospel of Young Germany.  Professor Cramb intimates that in his  belief   the   ultimate   issue is uncertain.   Fifteen months before the event  he saw that war between England and  Germany was inevitable. He held that  disarmament, arbitration, peace congress,   internationalism,   Avere   empty  dreams.  ��������� Moreover, ho rather welcomed .war,  and lie could' "imagine tho ancient,  mighty deity of all the Teutonic kindred, throned above the clouds, looking  serenely down upon the conflict, upon  his favorite children, . tho English,  and the Germans, locked in a death  struggle, smiling upon the Heroism, of  tho children of Gdin, the Avar god."  Both the Avar god and the professor  may .chuckle at the AVholesalo slaughter and the desolation and tho relapse  into barbarism, but they will hardly  makfi us forget the momentous and  ���������flignilleant fact that democracy is  everywhere rising, that the spirit of  human brotherhood ifl growing, that  absolutism and autocracy, which havo  hold tho democracies of Europe In restraint, are doomed.

It is announced from Petrograd
that the czar will set up the kingdom
of Hanover, now incorporated in
Western Prussia, If he crushes Germany with the .aid of the allies. His
choice for king will be the youn
Duke of Brunswick, although the
cuke's father, the Duke of Cumberland, is living. The Duke of Cumberland is the heir to the throne .of Hanover, a claim he has never been able
to enforce. The son is now fighting
in the ranks of the kaiser's army.
, Hanover opposed Prussia in many
wars, starting at least as -ar back as
Frederick the Great's time. At the
close of the six weeks' war, about half
a century ago, Prussia absorbed. Hanover and e.eposed the like of kings.
There was a great -hubbub in the
Prussian royal family, when the six
sons of the kaiser learned their pretty
sister was in love with the young man
upon whom the crown of Hanover
would have descended, had not the
Prussian mailed fist intervened. They
���iated that the marriage should not
take place unless the Duke .of Brunswick formally renounced, all claims to
the throne of Hanover and swore unconditional allegiance to the house of
Hohehzollerh." They called upon their
sister, as a loyal Hohenzollernj to give
up the match unless her husband subordinated himself thoroughly to Hp-
hehzoliem. ;'������-. y':,-r-.        '
But the princess declared she would
marry the Duke cf Brunswick even
if it meant exile and impoverishment.
Perhaps she had an intuitive feeling
that the crown would some time rest
on her; brow if she stood firm. At any

Permanent prohibition of the sale
of absinthe and kindred alcoholic beverages in France may be a result of
the war. Transportation and A&le ol
absinthe were forbidden when the wa?
began, but traffic in other intoxicants
was continued, The government has
now supplemented its original order
with another forbidding the sale of
any alcoholic drinks similar to ab-

It is quite  a voluminous document and we  understand upon recommendations  contained therein will be based the  bill which will be presented at the  lortheoining session of the legisla-  ture.' Some of the conclusions  arrived at are:  That it is desirable, to promote  co-operation among the producers  and also among the buyers of agricultural products.  That the Government adopt a  system of direct agricultural credit  on the lines of the system in force  in Kew Zealand.  'That, as another means of attracting to the province a very de-  eirable class of settlers Government  training farms should be established, in which fees sufficient to cover \  much.

The hotelmen of the province  have paid their ������200 or $400t or  whatever the license fee may be, on  the understanding that regulations  would be approximately the same  in 1915 as those obtaining in 1914,  and the government will be getting  money under false pretenses if it  munity is obvious on all sides. It  has literally obeyed the command  of the founder of our own religion  to make tho earth fruitful.   Thons-  6  A.46SBF    * A a.

The Doukhobors  reiuzu-jBkS  That the; commercial branch conduct educational work in the different districts in the direction of cooperation, and advise the proposed  agricultural credit commissioners  on the feasability and soundness of  any proposed scheme.  That real estate dealers be required to furnish bonds, which  would tend to reduce the evil of  misrepresentation, and would be of  service to injured parties in obtaining redress.  That, at as  early a date as possible, improvements  on farm lands  be exempted from   taxation, and  that the basis of valuation for farm  land for taxation purposes be made  as nearly as possible the price that  a willing purchaser would  pay if  the land were in a state of nature.  With all of the recommendations  made by the commissioners there  may not bo universal accord. There  may be differences of opinion as to  the correctness of some of their deductions.      Possibly  some critical  readers  may  think that at times  they  have  been   idealistic   rather  than practical.      But there can be  no two opinions as to the value of  the information, which they have  collated, and as to the soundness of  many   of   the    ideas    they   havo  advanced.  undoubtedly but it has to be settled  some day, and the sooner the job is  tackled so much the better for all  concerned.

The outstanding features of the  friction with the Doukhobors are  with regard to sending their children to school and the providing of  the vital statistics.  To excuse their indifference regarding these matters they in effect  told the attorney general they did  not see any necessity for such procedure; Jes-as Christ did not see  the necessity of vital statistics. He  only saw the necessity of love toward all the world, and simplicity.  He recognized that the complexity  of life led to much evil which otherwise could be avoided.  "When Mr. Bowser made some  remarks regarding the necessity of  compliance with the law the Doukhobors asked the chief of police to  state how long they had been in the  country, the number of people in  the community and the number of  arrests during   that   period.

" It is impossible  to have dozens of communities living side by side, none of which "will  intermingle. The isolated community, however excellent in its own  way, is bound to be a sore in the  life of our body politic, and the riot  act may as well be read in 19l5. It  will be an easier matter to enforce  it than if left till 1925.  Mixing'Em Up  Not a Square S>ca!

They are to be  divided up among the various  divisions of the regular army now  in France.  While we are all proud of the  showing Canadians made in South  Africa, experts assure us that an  entirely different type of fighting to  that employed in the Boer war is  now going on in Europe.  Infantry almost entirely are being  used and the fighting is of a much  closer order. From the % .uvnnor in  which the casualty lists are coming  in it is evident the artillery fire is  more destructive that in any previous war in history.  It is an axiom among military  men that raw troops who have  never bofore been under fire are apt  to waver and break ranks, no matter how brave the men may bo  individually. This is no reflection  on tho Canadians, as it is true of  troops the world over. The war  office has theroforo decided that our  boys will bo wodged in with sonnon-  ���������od troops until they gain experience  and learn how to remain cool  under fire.  ��������� While Canadians will regret this  move few will question thu wisdom  of tho Imperial war office in making  it. Of course it would bo nice to  road in the despatches some of the  encounters whore tho Onnadians as  a unit showed their mettle.

United States Wants to Take Part in
Australia's   Auction   Sales
Ambassador Page has reported from
London that Great Britain ~ for the
present is. unwilling to modify the
embargo on the exportation of wool
from Australia, Wool dealers, however, are hoping through the state department to continue negotiations so
as to enable theia to participate in the
auction sales soon to be held in Australia.
The British government is understood to have replied to Ambassador
Page that for the present the mother
country would use. all the \vool raised
in Australia, though when it became
apparent that there would- be a surplus, some arrangement might be
made whereby American firms could
obtain part of the product. The only
condition under which they could get
any wool, however, would be with
guarantees that the product be used
only in manufacturing goods contracted for by Great Britain.

Atrocity  Stories
It is a matter of justice to say that
the certain aad authenticated accounts
by known competent -witnesses
show humanity and kindness on the
part of the combatants, both Germans
and the allies. War begets not only
horrible things but a nervous state of
mind that originates and is credulous
of stories of horrible things. That
there is some reality of fact and a
wide range of fancy as to "atrocities"
is probably true of all wars. It is to
the glory of human nature if on the
whole it does not frequently abuse
the ruthless opportunity and license
of  war.

"Elevation  of  the Cross," and "The
Assumption."  Near by,  in the Place

bronze, the figure being 13 feet, mounted  on a pedestal 20  feet in height.
Next to the  cathedral the Hotel do

Besides this army  corps of workmen at Essen, iCfiipp'a  have 10,000 miners digging the earth  for coal in the firm's German collieries; 15,000 hands at the rolling  mills of Annen and Gruson,, and the  blast furnaces of Itheinhausen, Duis-  burg, Neumied, and Fingers; about 7,-  000 workmen atthe firm's shipbuilding  yard, the Germanla, at Kiel; and 5,000  ore miners in Spain. It is symptomatic  of the immense importance attached  by the German General Staff to the  continuance of wor?: at Krupp's at the  lijghest pressure that the general commanding the Rhine district has cx-  precsly refrained from calling up the  Landrturm in order that the great national work may proceed unimpeded  In the Rhenish industrial legion where  Krupp's is th.i leading concern.

The  English shells burst in their faces  and you could see men falling forward in heaps, but those behind  climbed over them and still kept  pressing on.  All thsir attacks were in dense  formation, and the execution done by  the English rifles was hideous.  One lesson of the campaign so far.  is "Don't take cover under trees."  It is better to have a clean wound  than a bullet wound with splinter}  of wood in addition. It is surprising  how little notice men take of wounds  when they are first hit.  While we were-lying in. the trenches  we occupied ourselves singing all the  comic songs we could remember. In  the middle of one hot German attack  we were singing "Hitchy Koo." Before, we were half through the chorus  the man next tue got a wound in the  nnnAr n>art of his arm.  But he sang the chorus to the finish, and did not seem to know he "was  hit till a comrade on the other side  said, "Don't you think you better  have it bound up? It's beginning to  make a mess."  The food was excellent.    You can  reckon that about 6.30 every evening  our army is sitting down to a good  hot meal���������at least;  that was so all  the time I was out there.  It was different   with   the Germans.  Some of the prisoners  told us  they  .had to subsist for days on porridge  made from crushed   corn taken from  the fodder.   .  The conduct of the British officers  in the field has been extraordinarily  fine.    The way they, have looked after their men, too, has been splendid.  No  one  will  run  down  the  English  aristocracy long in my hearing.  .During part, of the time I was in  hospital  I   was  looked  after  by  the  Duchess   of   Sut' -rland.

"That Confounded Order"  A graphic account of ..the fighting  at Mons Is given in a letter by Private Holohan, Royal Irish Itegimant,  now in Notley Hospital.  The battle opened on us at about  twelve midday. There was no trench  of any description that wo could  get into. We lay there for about  lialf an hour, and then advanced until tho Gorman infantry opened lire  on us at a distance of about 1,200  yards.

In the latter paper  he not long ago made some interesting remarks upon the German attitude towards the British navy. He  first commented upon the exploit of  the British submarine E9 in sinking  the German destroyer S12S and con.-  .tinued:,; -.-���������-��������� .-���������f-:'-^^'  German papers   recently   to  hand  have contained allusions to the British;  oavy     which     read   somewhat  strangely when contrasted with German press utterances on the same subject  before  the  war.    We are now  ^iven. to vnidfirctnTid. that the finem���������'  entertains    a wholesome respect for  our, fleet.   The events of the last two  months      appear   to   have  convtixoe'u.  them  that   there  may  after, all,   be  something in tne: fighting traditions of  the    British. sea service, which they  had been assured by their "experts"  were  largely  based  on legend   and  myth.   A great change in the lone of  their press comment set in after ihe  fight of Heligoland.   The consummate  skill, dash and courage which distin-  gushed the conduct of that   engagement obviously came as an eye opener  to the-Germans. ��������� We may be sure that  later events at'sea, including the same  exploit of E9 has deepened the same  salutory impression. Even the leading  German papers  now  admit  that  the  Fatherland  must look  to  the   land  campaign both for its laurels and substantial successes, as the prospect at  sea is not encouraging,    in a word,  they are beginning to realize that the  tsritish fleet is a ixtor whose power  had  been, grossly underrated, and It  is clear from their guarded admissions  that they have no great confidence in  the ability of the German navy to fulfil its much advertised mission of protecting the commerce and. the colonies  of the Fatherland., It may be remarked,   in   passing,   that   unless  it doe������  something and that -ery soon, the German navy will suiter a severe loss of  pre: tige "in Germany itself.    German  patriots, we may well imagine, are already beginning to  ask    themselves-  what return they are getting for tb,3  enormous expenditure on naval armaments during the last fourteen years.  It  is  literally true  that up to  the  present this great fleet has been utterly powerless to affect the course oi'  the campaign in any direction whatever.   It has perhaps prevented a hostile landing on the German coast, but  this elementary form of coast defence  could have been equally well undertaken by small flotillas costing but a  fraction of what the High Sea Fleet  has cost.    Indeed the reliance which  has always been placed on shore batteries, and minefields proves that the  navy was never intended for const defence  in  the  narrow   sense of that  term. Sooner or later the German public will demand some decisive action  by the fleet.    Whether the hands of  the navy department could be forced  by public opinion "is another question,  but the officers and men of the fleet  cannot be feeling very  happy in  the  knowledge that their comrades of tho ���������  How German Trenches Were Flooded  The great cairn system from Ca:ais  ���������Dunkirk to the Scheldt, at Bouchaia  ���������connects al the towns in the North  of Franco and form:; a continuous  water line parallel with the frontier,  rendering military operations very  difficult, especially between Aire and  tho coast.    .���������-'���������:  The main canal extends from Bou-  chaln on the fccheldt to Aire on tho  Lys rlvor, and thence through St  O-uer to the coast.

It was the personnel, how������  ������ver, which, these critics professed t^  consider   responsible   for the alleged  decline of British naval power. Certain amiable writers, who were supposed to know the sentiments of Ge*N"  man naval officers, were wont to assure us that these gentlemen liad e  high respect for the personnel char-  acter and professional attainments ok  the British naval officer.   Such, hovr-  ever, was not the impression one gained from a perusal of German servicS  literature, in which our officers werf  uniformly set down as lacking iu thai  zeal for hard worki and the purely;  professional side of their duties whica  were held to distinguish the Germaai<  "seeoffiziere."   As   for the men, thes;  were mercenaries who had taken tb  the sea because they were not mueii  good for anything else. Drunkenness  was rife among them, and insubord-  inatioh frequent,   with the''-result thai  discipline was at a low ebb, and tha  war training of the fleet suffered ia  consequence.  ��������� Much 'as wfl wav'." eynVjiq at ths^e  views, the fact remains that tbey were  eomniealy shared by the vast majority of intelligent "German's; and, there  is reason to -believe, by many high  naval authorities in Berlin. The prevalence of such opinions helps to explain the supreme confidence with  which the Germans looked forward to  an encounter- with Great Britain.  They knew their fleet to be much  smaller, but they really believed the  superior skill and devotion of their  personnel together with the incomparably finer ships they manned,  would achieve victory In the teeth of  heavy odds.  As we have said, Heligoland came  as the first rude shock to this characteristic 3elf-complacence. Other  events followed, minor in themselves,  but all pointing tho same way. Meanwhile it. must have been brought homo  to the meanest intelligence in tho  Fatherland that Britain's grip on the  German sea. commerce is remorselessly complete. With the exception of  some good work by its submarines,  the "successes" of the German navy  to date have been of tho nogatlvo  order.
