German General Who Organizec! Turkish Army Disclaims Responsibility for Defeat    ~-  Berlin, Germany.���������It is no fault of  mine, is the keynote of an article appearing in February's issue of the  Deutsche Rundschau, over the signature of Marshal von der Goltz, who  organized the Turkish army.  Marshal von der Goltz states that  many years ago he had carefully prepared a plan of maneuvers representing a Turco-Bulgarlan . war. The  Turkish army wes commanded by Na-  zitn Pasha, and the battle was to be  fought around Adrianople, in somewhat similar conditions to the present  war.  Several days before the maneuvers,,  however, wholesale arrests, of commanders o������ both armies took place in  Constantinople.

Have  you a train to catch?  The happy man stood stock still and  scratched his head in perplexity.

Mr. Mason had good reason for his  prophecy, i'of his fame as a ragtime  instructor had preceded him, and applications for his services from society  as well as professional women awaited his arrival at the Savoy Hotel,  where by the way, Max Pemberton  and Albert ;TPi de Courville hatched  their Hippodrome revue.

"Sure!" said Sinton. -"That's what  i brought him for. It's likely he never  bad a good square neal of decent  food In his life. He's starved to the  bone."  Margaret arose deliberately, removed  the white cloth from the supper table  and substituted an old red one she  used to wrap the bread, Sbe put  away tbe pretty dishes they commonly  psed and set the table with old plates  for pies and kitchen utensils.

Sinton threw in s-cones  and pounded the earth solid around  the post The sound of a gulping sob  attracted him to Billy. The tears were  rolling down his cheeks. "If I'd a  knowed you'd have to get down in a  hole and work so hard I wouldn't "a*  hit the,horses," he said.  "Never yoa mind, Billy," said Sinton.  "You will know next time, so. yon  can think over it and make up yonr  mind whether yon really want to before yon strike.8'  Sinton went to the barn to put away  the tools.    He thought Billy at hts  heels, but the boy lagged on the way.  a. bigs snowy turkey gobbler resented  the small intruder in bis especial preserves; and with spread tall and dragging wings came at him threateningly.  If that turkey gobbler bad known the  -jort of things with which Billy was  accustomed   to   holding   bis   own   lie  never  would  have issued  that challenge.    Billy accepted instantly.    He  danced around?with stiff arms at his  sides and Imitated the gobbler.    Then  came- his opportunity and he jumped  un   the   big   turkey's   back.

"Why. the blasted old thing came  off!" he said to Sinton, holding out  the tail in amazed wonder.  Sinton.    caugbt    suddenly,    forgot  everything ahd roared.

It is then that growing girls droop  and become fragile, bloodless and  nervous. Nature is calling for more  nourishment than the blood can supply and signs of distress are plainly*  evident in dull eyes, p'allid cheeks,'  aching backs, a languid step, fits of  depression, headaches and a dislike  for food. These signs mean anaemia���������that is bloodlessness.  The watchful mother takes prompt  steps to give her girl the new,  rich  blood her system  is thirsting for by  giving   Dr.     Williams'     Pink     Pills,  which make new blood and transforms  unhappy   anaemic   girls   into   robust,!  happy,    bright-eyed   young      women, j  No other medicine ha* ever succeeded I  like Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, because!  no other medicine can make that new, j kept Miss i'v'tun, who could only *\o  rich,   red   blood   wfi'ch  brings   health, a Utile -Hewing.  and vitality to weak, bloodless sys-i The town surveyor, who said he  terns.

the Old .Ag3 Pensions Committee of
the House was Mrs. Taft, secretary
of the Old Folks'. Home, Winnipeg,
and member ot the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union.
Basing her opinions upon her experience in connection with her work,
Mrs. Taft said that she strongly favored the^es-tahli&'kment ot an Old Age
Pension system in Canada.
While the institution of Which she
was secretary was generously aided
by tihe provincial government as well
as by private subscriptions, it'was inadequate to meet the demands made
upon it by the old and needy.
Mrs. Taft thought that while the
introduction of a pension scheme
would���not or "could not mean that
there would be. no further need for
homes for the aged or poor asylums,
it would at least have the effect of obviating the necessity of those with
some little means entering such institutions, thus preventing to a great extent the segregation of the old. the desirability of W-'-h, sihe said., was well

We have seen Lot ..pitching his: tent
toward Sodom and later dwelling in
Sodom (xiii, 12; xiv, 12) but now we
see him a ruler in Sodom, sit.ing in
the gate of Sodom (six. 1).- That
means getting on in the world, but it
means such a fellowship with the
world as ange-ls cannot approve, for
they preferred to abide in the street
rather than enter Lot's -house. . s
When they communicated to Lot
their business, that they had been sent
to destroy the city because of its iniquity, which cried greatly to God.
they told Lot to tell his'-'family, .-and
relatives to flee from the city because
of the judgment that was about to
come. They paid no heed to Lot's
message,-however, and he seemed to
them as^one that, mocked. ?
So?much for the valtie ?;of a testimony against the? world by one who is
conformed to the world, The life and
conduct of Lot is such a problem that
if the spirit by Peter, had not, told
us that1 he was a righteous man (II

supposed that he was such a one.
Such a testimony concerning suoh a
man should prevent us from passing
judgment on any one as to whether
they.are the Lord's or not.? See Rom.
���siy, 13; I Cor. 4, 5.
... In the morning the two angels took
Lot- and his wife and their two daughters by tlie hand and^ brought them
forth without the city, urging them to
escape for their lives and look not behind them lest they should he consumed in the destruction' of the city.
The perversenes. and ��� unbelief of
Lot are seen in his refusal to escape
to the mountain and In "his fear that
He who had delivered him from Sodom would let somo evil befall hlni ln
the mouiStain. See the" marvelous
grace of God 1n sparing Zoar at his
request. How wonderful beyond all
comprehension the sin of man.nnd the
grlacc of God! There ls. however, a
limit to His forbearance if sin is persisted in, for,.though He Is long, suffering and not willing that any should
periph, the day of the Lord will come
(II Pot. Ul, 9. 10).
- From chapter xix, 15-23. it looks aB
if the cloy on which Sodom nnd Gomorrah wfere destroyed bepan with a
clear Pky, a morning of sinish'r-s after
a liighl of the iiHiuti uiiiu to 'witieli tlio
cities wero given ovor. If tho sons-
in-law of Lot happened to mention to
any of their friends the visit rf their
father and his strange message concerning tho npnroachlng doom lt probably caused only laughter. But the
elr-ndr* gci'li-rcd. Ihe ptorm broVe, tho
firo and brVmuiono fell, nnd that was
the last morning on earth for the Inhabitants of thoso cities.
Tho Lord Jesus Christ who sent tho
���deluge In tho days of North and the
fir", that destroyed .thos*> cities, hns
pnld* As It. wnR in tho days* of Lot,
even thus shall It bo In tho'day whnn
tho Son of Man Is revealed. (Luke
xvll. 26: xxvl'l, 30; II Thoss. I, 7-9).
He also said: Romoraher Lot"** wlfo
(Luke xvill,:32). And'when the day
thoue Old To-Btliment records'nro ridiculed, ns they so often aro. It Is th-��
Ixird Johuh who Is thus hold up for
scorn and contempt and through Mini,
r*pd the Father, for nil of T-Mq w-rili
nud workH w^ra, the Father's through
Him (John xll. 49: xiv, 10).
