(A. Lindley), the two  Creston fruit shipping concerns,  was finally affected at a last committee meeting cm "Friday night.  The business will .be conducted  _.r_4er th_ rase of th*. Gr������_to-ri  j. rait Growers Union, Limited, with  A. X-indle"*** in charge.' ~    -       ' '  Of course all these meetings' were  not necessary to complete the amalgamation ' of the two firms. Like  all other fruit-shipping concern the  Fruit Growers Union had some real  financial difficulties to oyercome  and make provision for and this  detail will during 1815 be handled  by a finance committee composed  of Messrs. Rodgers, Hamilton and  Watson. Some amendments were  ai������o made to the company's articles"  of organization, so that at future  meetings the doctrine of one man  one vote will prevail.  While Mr, Lindley is to all intents and purposes manager, he  will be officially' known" as-sales  manager and, as the name implies,  he will devote all the time possible  on the selling end of the job. Furthermore, the policy wiii be^ to sell  as much as possible * .direct, to-Hfche  retailor, and it is " Mr. Lindlpiv'fi in-  tention to work all the towns between here and Medicine Hat and  also those north as far as Edmonton. East of the Hat he will only  work the bigger places such as  Maple Creek, Swift Current, Moose  Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon, etc.  While it is not expected that the  entire Valley crop can be sold in  this way, yet where necessary to  sell to wholesale houses prices i'.o.b.

Has been assured  the co-operation of the Okanagan:  Helling agencies, and he'is hoping  to a)so arrange with them for a  standard f.o.b. selling price; as well  as coming to some agreement as to  a minimum price below which ho  fruit or vegetables will bo marketed.  Mr. Lindley left on ��������� Sunday on a  trip over the territory to dispose of  tho year's soft fruit* crop." He* is  hoping to aeoure sufficient orders  for tho 1915 output and will be  hank in time to give the shipping of  it his personal attention. Given a  normal season it is likely two oar-  load lots or strawberries can bo  shipped, wlnoh will facilitate soil-  ** ..v. c������* rl /twin V-.

The reader, however, must not  assume that the elements were  successful in what looked like a  conspiracy against the whites.  While the entire field could not he  eovered be it known that the local  workers started in to make hay  right after Messrs. Taylor and  Schofield had signed the register at  the Creston House, and a little side  trip 'was made out West Creston  direction, where - some " improvements are quite necessary. _  , -  The journey '-was not in vain,  either. On Friday afternoon Mr.  Taylor assured The Review that a  grant of $1,500 wo.uld be made this  year for a bridge across the sloughs  between the Reclamation Farm ahd  "the French and, Simmons iranches.  This, amount - may -not seem", larg^  but m thin ypar-when little more  than repair work is being done all  over the province the sum is quite  satisfactory.- Given the hearty cooperation of the residents in that  section the $1,500 will work a great  big imTO',;"eme!'-t there. Besides,  if the appropriation for biidges  holds out an extra allowanco may  be forthcoming for the approaches.  An appropriation lias been made  for a bridge across the ravine at R.  As..w.e^ pointed: "oiit last; week the  aihbuht to /be spent in Ymir this  year is limited���������-so much so that  really no new roads are planned.  The aim will be to see that the  present highways are put in first-  class shape and kept that way.  This is already being affected as  Mr. Leach is in charge of a gang  in the Canyon City district; Matt.  Hagen has a or<**w at Duck Greek,  and work will start at once slashing out and widening the Kitchener  road.  So far as possiblo the preference  will be given married men. Mr.  Benny's instructions are to observe  fcho polioy of the greatest good to  tlio greatest number irrespective of  politics, but tho army of willing  workcro ob.ould rcmcrnbor that tho  jobs available are far too fow;  for tho many seeking employment and that if all are to  bo takon care of short-term om-  ployont can only bo given.

Rt gitnent for overseas service opened  at Nelson on Friday. To date no word  has been received to start the good  work hei*e.  Truly, in times of trouble more  trouble comes. Only last week  did we have the news that the  Great Northern Railway had put  JPort Hill down to one train a week  while in this issue we have to convey the unfortunate intelligence  that at an early hour on Monday  morning the whole town practically was destroyed by fife; and  still worse, only one of the sufferers carried insurance.  Just how the fire originated is a  mystery. It started in a shack  alongside the Whitney Hotel, about  About the most-largely attended  entertainment since the patriotic  cfFair in November was the concert  in the hall on Thursday night last,  under the auspices, of the Presbyterian Ladies' Aid. which was quite  ably presided over by Mr.M.

About the only criticism to  offer, is that there were too few-  lighter numbers in -the musical  menu. This was evidenced in the  great hand given Mrs. Stark on-,  her two appearances with the  banjo, and the equals-enthusiastic  applause of W. Truseott's Scotch  comic vocal effort.

F. G. Llttlo, who has boon hove  bpttor than 8ft yoars, is our authority  for stating that novor boforo in the  Valloy-s history has Creston been favored with a limt-day-of-April snowfall.  that outside of a piano not a, thing  was saved at the Whitney Hotel���������  the inmates escaping in their night  clothes���������while at "Kelly & Ingram's  not a thing was saved, even the  cash register is to be - seen among  debris. At the English" Hotel there  ^a^ca-Kttle~ time f6r :$h& Ete^dy  number of fire-fighters to do some  rescue work and, the piano, some of  the furniture and clothing were  taken out of the building, which-  was a pile of smouldering embers  and ashes twenty minutes after the  flames got to work on it.  The los. is placed between $20,000  and $25,000, on which there is spme  $9,000 insurance all carried by  Kelly & Ingram���������neither of the  hctolmen had a nickel of protection.  The only business places standing, today are the barber shop,  Spot's saloon, which were across  the street from the store, and the  general store and po&toflice of H.A.  French, which is about 50 yards  distant" from the English Hotel.  All these buildings were saved by  protecting them- with wet blankets.  The fire fiend would seem to be a  jinx with Jim English. Precisely  three years and throo days previously his hotel at Kootenay, Idaho,  near Bonners Ferry, was destroyed  by fire. Owing to unsettled conditions at Port Hill it is doubtful if  any of the business men biirnod out  will rebuild.     .  Mr. and Mrs. Jim English are  well and favorably known horo and  thoir many friondR will hoar with  gomihie regret of their, misfortune.  strumentals were furnished by Mrs.  Downs, who was obliged to respond  to an encore, And by Miss Esther  Bradley, who scored quite a triumph  -A-iirlut-ii ii-.w Furtl huLom havu -������������������_*_������������������  ���������with the audience by her rendering  of "The Shepherd's * Dance."

Rev.J.  E, Pow* delivered a somewhat-different sort of a newcomer's address  that was humorous, brief, and generously applauded.  There were five solos, Miss Smith  Mrs. Downs, Roy Staples and'W.  Truscott all being heard tb good  advantage. Mrs. Rose's appearance was by request, and her rendering of '���������Caller Herrin'" was one  of the popular- offerings of the  evening. Mrs. Carpenter and Roy  Staples favored with "O that w c*  two were Maying,'] and W. Truscott and A. Biddulph appeared  twice, with " Eulalv Lee" and '4My  gal is a .Highborn Lady," L. Mawson adding to tho chorus accompaniment with the violin to good  effeot. The quartette, "Just a  Song at Twilight," was nicely done  by Miss Smith, Mrs. Carpenter and  Messrs.

He, Hugh, Eira, one after the other,  they went out of the room, and Noah  was left alone to play with the newly  manufactured diamonds, and to listen  to the sounds that increased, and told  of the nearlng approach of the lynchers.

There, just emerging from the  head  of  the  ravine  they 'had ������������������them-'  selves*   followed j   was   a   light  buggy  drive������.'by one man.  "Has^he seen us?" Eira asked.  "God'knows," said Hugh.  Eira  looked "again,  and  then   slid  softly to the ground.  "I can do no moie," she said, "they  must find me here."  Hugh look.d down at her. It was  plain she was far too exhausted to be  able to carry out the plan he had  formed, of her - making her escape  alone, while be stayed to draw the  pursuers on his own scent.

In Ontario, 23 per cent, and.  in the Prairie Provinces about-90 per  cent, were found to treat their seed  grain.   Tbe  losses  from  thia source  are much greater than imagined by  tbe farmer, and, even if only, a small  amount of smut was present in last  yearls crop, it will pay to treat the  grain before sowing it this spring.  Several methods have been -devised  whisk, the spues in the passage way  to control the various forms .of smut,  at either end of the car n the only   but, as the formalin treatment is the  as acltish, persons travelling m sleeping cars has cauied me to write the  l'ouowing, which may induce a few at  least of the offenders to reform:  The necessarily small space in a  sleeping car in comparison with an  hotel suggests that the greatest comfort to the sleeping car traveller will  result from a fair regard for the  rjghts and feelings of others by ail  sleeping oar travellers.

The ravine they were following turned abruptly at right angles; and they,  going straight ahead, had to trust  themselves to the open prairie.

He  beat    the    weakness  down, and conquered it, but he could  go  no further,  and sank beneath  a  tree, still supporting Eira in his arms.  After a time she opened her eyes  and looked round uncomprehendingly.  "What has happened?" she asked,  and then: "I have had such dreams."  Hugh did not answer, for he knew  those dreams  of hers  had  been  no:  dreams, but cruel reality.. She sat up,  with one hand held to her forehead.  "Oh, I remember now!"  sho  said  slowly; "are they following us still?"

AN OLD TRAVE.LL.3I..  cheapest, simplest and most effective  for stinking smut of wheat, -smut of  oats, and covered smut of barley when  properly   used,  it  will  be   described.  The commercial (40 per cent.) formalin is used in solution with water at  the rate of one pint  i.i ib.} to forty  gallons.    The  grain    to  be  treated  should    be spread out upon, a clean  floor or canvas, in a layer two- or three  inches thick.    The    solution is then  sprinkled over il. An ordinary sprinkling caif or Si-iali spray pump is usc_yul  foi* this  purpose.    The  grain should  be   shovelled  or  raked - over  during  sprinkling to insure that every- grain  is thoroughly jwetted.   After this, the  grain is shoveled into a close, pile and  covered with canvas or' old -sacks to  hold in the fumes of the formalin. The  grain should remain in the covered  pile for from eight to ten hours, after  which it must be spread out thin so  as to dry without sprouting. One gallon   of' solution  is   sufficient   "for  a  busttt.- oi grunt.  ,After di*ying, the seed may be  planted at once or stored for future-  use. Here it is important to remember that .the seed may become re-infested from old sacks, bins or even  the drill itself. Everything, therefore, which comes in contact with:the  grain-after it is treated should befirst  thoroughly disinfected with a strong  formalin solution. Commercial formalin usually costs from twenty-five to  fifty cents a pound (pint). If the grain  is planted before it, is completely dry.  enough more should be sown to compensate for the increase hi si!i.e of th������  seed through swelling.  In treating stinking smut .of "wheat  it is best to inimcrsb the grain so that  the smut balls can be skimmed 6ft*.���������  F.C.N. ." :.������������������ :,';���������.'

Immense     Importation     of   Canadian
Produce   by 'Great   Britain
In 1914 Britain imported-Canadian
produce.in excess of'1913 to-the value
of $4,652,000, and in excess of 1912,
of $22,690,000. For the last quarter
of 1914 the excess ovsr +hs seusc "Sr-
iod in the previous year was nine and
a half millions. These figures surely
furnish some idea of the neces.ity
there is for further production. - To
retain the market, Canada must have
the goods.' To' have the goods she
must cultivate the best. It is "this
great and important doctrine that the
Patriotism and Production campaign
is instilling, and that the publications
issued by the department of agriculture are intended to impress and further. Any of this iiteratmo can he

The     Importance  of  Short  Rotations
Good   Cultivation
The presence of weed seeds in soils
under     different  systems  of  culture
aud cropping should be suggestive to
farmers.   An.investigation being conducted by the Seed Branch, Ottawa,
shows a sod field which had been in
hay or pasture for- six years tn contain 19,183 weeji  seeds in a  surface
square  yard one"* inch dsep,  8,912 in
the same volume of soil at a depth
from two to three inches and 4,309 at
a depth five to seven inches. Another
field  which- had   been  under a  good
system   of   cultivation   and   rotation
contained 4,984 weed seeds in the surface   soil   and  3,020   in  each  of  the
other * depths.     The  concentration  of
seeds in the surface layer the sod field
may be explained by weeds being allowed to reproduce, themselves- from
years to year.   Information as to the
percentage vitality of weed seeds at.
the different depths is not yet complete, but a large number of the surface seeds in the case of the sod field
are vital. This investigation indicates
the'  * importance  of  short  rotations,
good  cultivation  and    prevention  of
weeds going to seed. Other" important
methods of weed control are summer
ploughing of* sod lands    followed by
frequent   autumn' cultivation   to   destroy growing weeds thorough cultivation --.luring  the   growing    season  oi!
hoed "crops and after-harvest cultivation of cereal crops which have riot
heeu se^ed down.

Nervoug .Diseases
In The Spring
Cured by Toning* the Blood
and Strengthening the
Nerves
It is the opinion of the best medical
authorities,- ~ after long observation
that nervous diseases are more cot".
mon and more serious in the spring
than at any other time of the year.
Vital changes in the system, after long
winter months, may cause tnuch more
trouble than the familiar spring weakness and weariness from which most
people suffer as the result of indoor
life, in poorly ventilated and often
overheated buildings. Official records
prove that in April and May neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, epilepsy and
other forms of nerv ��� troubles are at
their worst, aud that then, more than
any other time, a blood making, nerve-
restoring tonic is needed.
The antiquated custom of taking
purgatives iu the spring is useless, for
the system really needs strengthening, while purgatives *~only gallop
through the bowels, leaving you weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills" are the
best medicine, for they ..ctually make
the new, rich, red blood that feeds
the starved nerves, i\nd thus cure
the many forms of nervous disorders.
They cure also such other forms of
spring troubles as headaches, poor appetite, weakness in the limbs, as well
as remove unsightly pimples and
eruptions. In fact they unfailingly
bring now health and strength to
weak, tired and depressed men,
women and jtjliildren.

In nine cases out  of ten tbe  reasons for  failure might  have been found in one or more of the  following causes:���������  Lack of business methods,  The fact that the idea is a comparatively new one in this counti-y.  Loose organization.  Inability to control their crops.  Selfish pei*sonal ends.  Personal jealousies.  Difference in grading and packing  fruit.  Too great  a prosperity   among the  members.  Lack of absolute necessity   to combine.  Associations of men for the purpose'  of marketing or purchasing or both,  .-no fundamentally the samo, and both  Europe and America offer us examples  of such associations that are notable  successful.  The 'Rochdale Stores, the largest  merchandise establishment in the  world, nnd conducted purely on co-operative lines, the California Fruit Exchange which now handles something  over sixty percent of the citrus fruits  grown in California. The Grand Junction Fruit Growers Association of Colorado nnd many others might be mentioned as live up-to-date successful organization that are contributing immensely Ui the material welfare of  t heir members and in the cases of the  fruit growers associations have gone  far toward the attainment for the  husbandman of that position of social  dignity which rightly should bo and  ultimately will bo his.  It would be well if men who contemplate the formation of a co-oporntiyo  association would on eh make a thorough study of tbe history of ono or  more co-operative associations that  have proved suceessfnlr* und of the  conditions and circumstances loading  to its formation.

This in brief is the story of a success  achieved through co-operation by fmit  -growers who were reduced to the point  of abandoning their industry, and is  but a fair criterian of what may be accomplished along the same lines by  any group of men engaged in fruit  growing who are willing to sink petty  jealousies and differences and work together in "a broad spirit, each having  at heart tbe interests of the others.  Co-operation among those engaged  in fruit growing has been more succes-  ful in the west than in the east. This  has been due to certain peculiar differences in fruit growing in the one section as compared with the other.  The East was settled by a type of  men, who to say the least were of a  decided independent turn of mind.  They pioneered the wilderness, creating homes each of which was sufficient  unto itself. The farm house was the  factory in which was supplimented  the produce of tbe fields, the water  and the forest. Each family living  unto itself developed to a greater degree the spirit of self sufficiency and  independence.  In the West a different type of men  have of late years engaged in agriculture in   general and in fruit growing  in particular. Business and professional men have left   tho East and the Old  Country and have come west in search  of an attractive climate, to indulge a  taste for funning or for the sport of  stream   and forest.   These   men have  been strongly   attracted   toward fruit  giowing,  affording na it does a better  return on the money and ln-bor put into it, if the   investment, be  backed by  brains, than does any other branch of  agriculture,   dolightftil  work,   and to  t,Vj������- otudeiit or lover of Mature a fascination   and   interest  that   never  fail.  These men have brought into tho business of fruit   growing, business methods, and having all their lives beon dependent to a great extent on community organization havo also brought into fruit growing a decided inclination  for co-operation.    It is such men, possessed of business experience and tho  spirit for co-operation whohavo pushed western  horticulture so far to the  front, and overcome-sonn-of the greatest diH.ciiltios that ever besot tho path  of agricultural development.

It is an industry  I diMilinu* In n highly perishable noni-  'liioditv, tbe market for the bulk of  I which Is  usually at it   grout -Imlnrico  The  .ver-  from the producing point,  age grower is too greatly dependent  on bis own resources, with the result  that there is a lack of proper storage  accommodations A and of facilities for  properly handling    the  fruit  before  shipment.   Added to this is the ignorance on the ������k?t of the average grower  of the  conditions prevailing  in   the  various markets to which he may ship  his fruit..A- The result is only what may  be expected-^a glutting of the local  markets, and of some distant markets  to which, _s usually'happeus,  many  growers have simultaneously shipped  their fruit.   This condition is intensified by the ^act that, ^ owing to lack of  storage facilities, too great a portion  of the fruit crop- is rushed to market  in  the autumn when the prices are  usually lowest.        ���������  In the years of the greatest production of apples it is doubtful that, the  supply really equalled the demand.  Apparent over-production has invariably amounted merely to poor distri-  tion. One of the chief causes of the  \GVr p.-ices of this year was the breaking down of the machineiy of distribution. The war caused a shortage of  ships/ preventing the usual shipment  of fruit abroad. On the London market apples were quoted in April at over  20 shillings per box.  The proper distribution of produce  is one of the greatest benefits derived  from an organization. Other benefits  are: It enables small growers to ship  in car lots; it enables the growers to  establish a brand that will become*  known in the markets and thus ensure  better prices; it makes possible bettor  business methods in dealing with fruit  buyers, transportation companies.o.tc.;  it enables a community to make use of  varieties of fruit that for any reason  it may not bo desirable to grow except  in small quantities; it generally brings  better equipment, w.eh nn cool storage  plants, etc., for handling tho fruit  crop; it insures hotter care of tho  orchards; it results in greater stability  of the industry.  Generally speaking the most promising type of association is one that  handles a largo share of the output of  fruit or produce from any section with  natural onyironmont uniform enough  to produce a fruit with uniform characteristics for the entire section. Tn  this regard the Creston district has  ovory natural adviuilagi', but Homo of  this advantage 1ms boon siicrKlcod by  the planting of too groat a number of  variei Vm.

If is alinoHt, as Important that local  niiiioeiatioiiH organize in a general mmwi-  elation an ii, is that any district should  organize a local association. Theoretically the larger the general association flu- better and stronger it will bo.  In practice, however, it. is web io  amalgainale  ou.yUio.ic   local  anhoci._-  tions that have consolidated their organization, awakened in their members the true spirit of co-operation,  and tbe ability and willingness to  maintain a high grade of produce.

Separate School  Teacher Speaks  TELLS. OF THE GOOD DODD'S KID-  NEY PILLS HAVE DONE  Canada Should Increase Her Productions as ivlych as Possible  According to reliable .statistics  there are tied up at the present time  about two billion bushels: of wheat,  the production of the countries at  war. This is Ain the vicinity of half  the world's- total production, of wheat.  A recognized authority. argues that  granting that the warring nations produce a one-half crop in the coming  year, a deficit of one billion bushels  will still be shown. The three countries upon which the filiin;?' of this  deficit of one billion bushels will rest  are" Canada, the United States and  Argentina. The\combined output of  these three countries is only 3,249,-  000,000; their ; exportable surnlus  would, of coiirse, be much less, so it  can easily *be~ seen that ths question  is not one to be easily solved, and it  behooves Canada to increase 3ier productions as much as she possibly can,  for when the war is over and trade  begins to re-establish itself and the  nations Undergo a process of rehabilitation, the demand for all bread-  stuffs must be enormous.

Fro2������n Meat Trade  The report that the Australian' -government Is buying up the meat supplies io hold Lhom in readiness for imperial need3, is a reminder that tha  Antipodean frozen meat trade, vast  as it now is, dates only from 1882,  whon the New Zealand grazier., tried  the experiment of exporting frozen  carcasses to England.

Then it  will not look like a board of trade  publicity campaign.  In one district I met a man who had  been a street car conductor, first in  Toronto, then in / Edmonton. Five  years ago he tools a homestead, and  ail he had was a lot of s-maition and  ������ very little money���������less than $500.  That was five years ago.

They  are in the midst of prosperity, but  their eyes are so blinded by newspaper stories of unemployed and lower city rents and unsold real estate  that' they see it no..  One farmer spoke in this wise,  "Last week I sold one of my* farms  and got $9,000 for it. Today-! brought  in a carload of hogs, which will'make  a total of some $4,000 worth 1 have  sold since Christmas. I was foolish  enough to let my .wheat go at $1.25. I  had 10,000 bushels���������nearly all No. 1."  Then, reminded of the hard times and  the war by contact with a city man,  he spoiled it all by remarking, "But  1 tell you, boy, this war has hit me  hard. I have got considerable unsold  property in Edn_.01.ton, and a couple  of unsold lots in Saskatoon."  It is true that some farmers had  their crops burned out. Some need  government said to buy this year's  seed. But it is also true that the west  is filled with prosperous farmers.

These  thirteen words will ring down through  the ages" in British history. They  were written by Sir John -Tench, ;n  his official report of the battle of  Ypres on October 31. It has taken  the British people many months to  learn what a gigantic crisis in the history of the empire lies behind this  phrase.    They were sixty short,  ter-  Prench had at noon on this day.  A little later-tne automobile of G*n������  era! French whirled into ihs little  town of Hooge. .A. short distance up  the Meny road was -the very heart and  core of the battle.  To see General French come into  the heart of the' battle, amid the  shells, to know that he had not given  up hope, was an inspiration to the officers.    New life came into the Srit-  rible inia*./.es tnat climaxed twenty ��������� ish# General French was spending  days of terrific fighting. Each day ��������� tl_at 'famous little hour "at Hooge  had seen a battle that was historic in ; between 2 and 3 oeloc'k."  General French and Sir. Douglas  Haig and their officers hustled from  point    to    point.    At   their  coining  4   -.-i.-.-.SN..,^  nui* c������i������  and. were swingi-.g down toward the  English channel asd Calais, Sir John  French and his men had beei entrusted with the duty of stopping the gap  in ,the allied lines between _ .rmen-  tieres and Ypres.  For twenty days French  had been  strengthening his line until    he had  0*>s������  Tha intellectual ami  achievements of the Poles ahd the  Bohemians, attained six centuries and  more ago, show that the Slav-is capable of the highest things.. He is  weakest perhaps in the organization  of government, for Poland, long the  bulwark of civilization against the  Tartar and the Turk, fell at last because of the endless dissensions  ambng its brave and brilliant nobility.  Cracow itself was founded about  700 A._>. Mors __._._ onc_ it vjbr destroyed by the Tartars, rebuilt and re-  colonized by Polish, German and Bohemian settlers.  From 1305 to 1610 it was the capital of Poland; later it was part of the  grand duchy of Warsaw, and from  1815 to 1846 it was, with its immediate neighborhood, 'a free and neutral  state, a distinction it lost when internal disorders. gave Austria an excuse to step in and take .possession  ot the town.  One of the most interesting things  in Cracow is Kosciusko Hill, a mound  of eartn on the top or the Borisiava i  hill. Alt is made of handfuls ot earth"  brought by Poles from every corner  of the kingdom, and thrown together  to form a memorial to the Polish patriot, composed of the soil of the  country he loved so well. Across the  river Vistula on Krakus Hill there is  a similar mound, which is said to be  almost twelve hundred -^ws old; it  was, so tradition says, raised in the  same way "to tiie memory of Krakus,  the Slavic prince who founded the  city. ���������  If th__ war results in an autonomous  or semi-autonomous kingdom/of Poland, Warsaw instead of Cracow may  be its capital, since it is mora centrally situated and much larger. But  to the natriotic Pole, Ciracow is always the spiritual centre of his fatherland���������the "heart of Poland."  120,000 men,, but during the same  space of time the Germans had be_n  piling up their forces until, on the  morning of October 31, there were  nearly four German army corps facing the centre of the British general's  line. Thio centre was held by  Sir Douglas Haig. Four Germans to  one Britisher were -he odds.  General French realize! that after  twenty days of sparring, the Germans  had decided where to strike. The battle began in the mornin;.*r, with contests along the whole lin-j. The field  of Waterloo was as a child's garden  in size, .-compared with * --General  French's* battleground.  Back at Ypres, General French  studied the battle by means of maps.  Telephones and couriers brought him  news almost every moment. As the  day advanced towards noon the fight-_  ing on the wings grew less; in'the  centre it- grew fiercer and fiercer, the  burden ofthe day was falling on the  first army corps. Almost every minute  some ^British regiment was either suffering some catastrophe or .achieving-  some.feat that would go down iu r.s  history forever. ,  Bill-Six -���������histories and ������ll -military  history will say that no general In the  annals of- great battles ever had greater cause of giving up hope than Gen.  majors, colonels, captains, ail wer������  fired with the. greatness of the moment. They became privates; they  seized rifles and fought with/their  men. There was no longer need for officers; the battle had become a fight  to the death.  Ie was shortly before 2.30 that General French got his llrst chance tcs  hit the Germans on their flank. The  side "attack flustered them. With cold  steel alone the Worcesters retook  Cheiuveit and closed the Meny road.  From that moment the tide of battle  turned." By 3 o'clock, when the historic visit of Sir ������phn French - at  Hooge had ended, the British soldiers  knew they had held the G-orxnans back  .and that the issue had been decided.  The British lost about 50,000 men ostitis momentous October 31 and in the -  20 days ughting that preceded it.
