Death came with tragic sudden ess  to George Mead of the Creston Hotel  on Saturday afternoOii, the bursting  of the iron lighting-system gasoline  tank killing him instantly. '  The gasolene lights in the hotel had  not been working satisfactorily and  thinking ib was the fault of poor  pressure Mr. Mead decided to look the  tank over to discover where the leak  in the pressure occurred. He had the  hotel porter, Tom Jacks, assist in-the  job, and it was while the late Mr.  Mead had his ear to the tank, with  Mr. Jacks pumping in the air, that  the expiosior  took place,  the bottom  3tvjr  Wedding bells can be faintly heard  in these parts.

It is supposed  that the pressure guage on the tank  was not working properly, and that  instead of only having on the usual 25  or 30 pounds a . very much greater  quantity of air had been forced into  the tank.  The late Mr. Mead Was a native of  Toronto, Ontario, being born there in  1866. He came west when quite a  young man and has followed mining  for many years, having been a resident at the coast when the Klondike  boom was on, and in which he also  participated, as well as working in  the gold camps in Alaska, and all oyer  this province. He came to Creston in  1906 and for some five years he was in  partnership with the late J, B. Moran  in the Creston Hotel, leaving it to go  ranching, having property at several  spots in the Valley and only return-  inn* to take charts of the hotel on the  death of Mr. Moran the latter part of  June. Decease's I was... married; at  Victoria,-in 1893, to Miss Lottie Buss,  and is survived   by his wife and one  son,;George, who is with thelmperial  Bank at Fernie.  The funeral on Monday afternoon  was" very largely attended, and was  conducted    by    the    Creston   Lodge  Knights of Pythias, of which deceased  was'a member, assisted by Rev. R. E.  Po*������r, the members of the order turning out in large numbers to pay their  last; respects.    Another   evidence   of  the ^esteem in    which departed   was  held was shown in the floral offerings,  wreaths being sent by Capt. and'Mrs.  Passmore,  Biairmore; Mr. ,. Mrs. and  Miss Doyle, Mr. and Mas. S. A. Speers,  and Creston Lodge   Knights of Pythias;; spray from  Mrs.  W.  Ryckman,  Cranbrook;   and   crosses   from' Mrs.  and Miss T.  Drummond,  Cranbrook.  and Mr and Mrs. Lewis, Sirdt?r.  ...The passing of George Mead will be  sadiy felt by a very wide   circle of  acquaintances.    He was a man's man  in the genuine sense of that term, and  had the friendship   and esteem of .the  many vvho knew him.    Ih their great  sorrow Mrs. Mead and son  have  the  truest sympathy of the Valley citizens.

For the  splendid patronage, and to all who  helped make the affair such a success,  the Aid wishes to express their best  thanks.

As aii instance, the servioe held  last Sunday in Mercantile Hall, in  memory of the men of the Valley  who have died during the war in  defence of their homeland country,  could not have been better, or more  appropriately conducted anywhere.  Its simplicity, quiet intensity and  sincerity would impress the most  casual and indifferent spectator. It  was a servioe of the people, and by  the  people.     Its  atmosphere  was  i*   * ���������       *.      ti x* id     nii  uisuiioiiy coiitfi'e^Aoioiiai. inero  was no attempt to emulate the  modern and pernioious tendenoy  toward : 'performance," whioh sadly  mars so many services of to-day.

Creston _Lodg  Knights "of" Pythias, during their  recent sad bereavement.-  Liherais Win  quenoo ran   through the whole  of  the delightful little service.  A few preliminary remarks by  Rev. Mr. Mahood of the Anglican  Church, explaining the intent of  the assembling together, and expressing regret at the absence of  Father Kennedy of tho Roman  Oatholio Church, preceded tiie  opening hymn, Rook of Ages.  Prayers were then said in memory of the dead heroes and for the  bereaved, followed by the hymn,  "Jeans, Lover of my Soul." The  Scripture lesson from St. John xv.,  aptly oontained tho beautifnl saying of onr Lord, "Greater love hath  no man than this, that a man lay  down his life for liis friends."  Aftor Oxonbam's hymn, "Lord  God oF Hosts whose mighty hand,"  an address was delivered by Rov.  Mr. Pow, pastor of the Presbyterian Churoli, hia theme being "The  Value of Lifo." In mcanuring lifo  by its threo aspnots of Quality, Intensity and Concentration, Mr.  Pow made an impresoivo appeal to  ins hearers,  hoping that  they and  their country might seek those  qualities in their lives which would  save the sacrifice of their men from  becoming of none effect.  "Onward    Christian    Soldiers"  was   then   sung   with    vigor   and  enthusiasm.    Rev. Mr. Lees* pastor  oF   the   Methodist   Church,    then  addressed those   present.    He very  feelingly   drew   attention   to   the  irresistible call  which   had caused  the men to go   who   had made the  supreme  sacrifice.    Ho   quoted   in  his   peroration   the  words  of  Sir  Thomas   White:    "I    was   deeply  impressed   and   affected by the uncomplaining  cheerfulness,   courage  and devotion  of  the  men  on the  firing line. As I saw the conditions  under whieh  their  arduous  duties  are carried   on   from   day   to  day,  noted   the    cheerfulness   of   their  demeanor   in    tho    face   of   ever-  present danger and   hardship, and  conversed with  them  as  to  their  daily   life,  outlook,  homo,  friends  they had  left  behind,  it  seems to  mo thoy were the flowor of Canadian manhood, the noblest, worthiest men    that  I  had   ovor   been  privileged to meet."  ''God Savo tho King" was then  sung, and aftor tho blessing, all  remained standing whilo tho  organist, Mr. Crllis, played tho  "Dead March in Saul." The offer-  ing, over and above expenses, was  given to tho Red Cross Society.  Surely, aftor a service of this  kind no ono will daro to say that  the moral and' spiritual force,  whioh is the backbone .of every  grout nation, is lacking in onr  land. Byhtandwii.  In the bye-election yesterday in  Vrncouyer. Hon. M. A. Macdonald,  attorney-general, . and Hon. Ralph,  Smith, minister of finance, were reelected by substantial majorities, Mr.  Macdonald heading the poll by a matter of 700 votes. The election was  rendered necessary on account of  these members accepting cabihet  positions.  A Giose Gail  Section foreman F. Romano and his  ono helper had a, rather exciting experience on Tuesday.    While proceed  ing east on the   handcar they all but  collided with a   westbound freight in  one of the cuts  near Canyon.   They  jumped   for   their   lives   when   they  caught sight of  the freight,  and   al  though  tho engineer put on the air  brakes he was unable to halt the train  and   the bnndou* wits   rather   budly  smasned as a result of the collission,  Locai and Personal  .

Now doctors know     that  it    is rooted in  the  blood,  and while exposure may start  the pain, nothing but  the removal  of  the  poisonous    acid  from the    blood  will  cure the trouble,    lt is a waste  of   both   time   and   money   to   try   to  cure     rheumatism     with     liniments,  poultices  or anything  that only goes  skin  deep.     Rubbing lotions into  the  <kin may five temporary relief, but it  actually   helps   to  circulate   the  poisonous  acid   more  freely  and  thus   in  the   end     increases   thc   trouble,  and  perhaps   leaves   the   sufferer  permanently  crippled.       The     one cure,  the  only cure, for rheumatism is to drive  the acid which causes the trouble out  of  the  blood.     To  do  this  no  other  remedy can equal Dr. Williams Pink  Pills, which actually make new blood,  sweeps out the poisonous acid, loosens   thc  stiffened, aching joints,  and  bring good health and comfort. Here  is the proof.    Mr. Joseph  Crouse, of  Nincvah,   N.   S.,  says:  "For    several  years   I   was   severely   afflicted   with  rheumatism.    The trouble seemed to  locate in all  the joints in  my body,  and my suffering at times was most  intense,   and   the  disease  greatly   interfered with my activity.    I doctored  steadily fpr a long time, but the trouble was  obstinate and  did not yield  in the least'to the doctors' treatment.  One  day a  friend  told  me  of  some,  cures of rheumatism by the use of Dr.  Williams Pink Pills and strongly advised me to try them.    I did so, and  to    my    great    surprise    eight boxes;  completely  cured me  of  the  trouble, I  and I was as supple, active and free,  from pain as ever I had been in my  life.    Better still, I have never felt a  symptom of the trouble since."  You  can  get  these  pills  from  any  M  470 Grain Exchange  WE GET RESULTS THAT SATISFY.  Write for market information.

Without  going back to the date when, in his  theatrical extravagance, the kaiser  jested about "General French's contemptible little army," we may take  our minds back a few months, and  ask ourselves how the English army  has grown from the formation of  troops and officers, recruited first by  the voluntary system and afterwards  by conscription, and to what extent  it has been able to hold its own against thc best-trained army in Europe. The German generals and tiie" j^"^'c  newspapers through which the Wil-  helmstrasse vent's its spite and hatred against England did not fail to  make mockery of "Kitchener's army"  and to treat it, if not as a negligible  quantity (no, they did. not go quite  that far), at least as an adversary  that   would   be   much   easier   to  deal  Bounty To Be  Iii France on Wheat  Government to Control Retail Prices  of Butter and Cheese  The French senate passed a resolution authorizing the French minister of the interior to fix the limits of  retail selling-prices of butter and  cheese. These products are_ now  bringing from 50 per cent, to 150 per  cent, more than they did before the  war.   '  The Chamber of Deputies adopted  a bill, presented by:.the government  authorizing a bounty on wheat harvested in "France next year. The bill  provides/for a bounty equivalent to  16c a bushel on such wheat, and an  amendment was adopted providing  for an allowance of 20 francs each  additional hectare (about 2 1-2 acres)  devoted to wheat growing.  Thc minister of commerce, Eeti-  enne Clcmentel, said that the government now had in service 76 grain carrying ships for purchases made directly from foreign governments.

In  this article the well-known., writer,  Mr. J. Saxon Mills, goes so far as to  suggest that the Mother Country in  dealing" with this problem might follow the example of the Dominion. Hc  says:  One of the most difficult questions  England has to face at present is how  to deal with the broken men who are  now streaming" in from the battle-  fronts. The adequate answer to that  question has not yet been/found.

It would be interesting to follow  the history of a few typical cases of  Canadian soldiers wounded in the  battle lines. Of course, the injured  man may be_ cured and return to the  front; but his case may be hopeless,  so far as military fitness is concerned, and he may have to be sent back  to Canada.

Pichon,  in the Daily Chronicle.  Direct Line From Canada to France  Will* Be Inaugurated  The establishment of a direct  steamship service between St. Na-  zaire, France, and Halifax during the  winter months, was announced at  Halifax by Frank Martin, of the Marine Navigation Company, of London.  There will be monthly sailings and  the vessels engaged, it was said, will  be of considerable tonnage.  Most of Canada's imports from  France heretofore have been via New  York, and it was stated that the new  line would reduce freight rates and  require less  time for  delivery.       Mr  ger of thinking that our responsibility for the wounded soldier is fulfilled when he is no longer fit for military service, and when he is pensioned and discharged from the army.  When thus discharged he loses thc  benefit of the special treatment provided while he remains in uniform,  and he is at once thrown upon the  lists of the already over-worked panel  doctors. This will" not do at all. The  nation has a larger and longer responsibility to its disabled veterans  than that. It may be useful to notice  how Canada deals with the problem.  We may learn much from the admirable system which has been establish-  cd by the Dominion Government.  By an order-in-council, dated June  30, 1915, the Canadian Governrneat  formed, at the instance of Sir Robert  Borden, a Military Hospitals and  Convalescent Homes Commission,  "to deal with the provision of hospi-"  tal accommodation and military convalescent homes in Canada for officers, jion-commissioned officers and  men of tho Canadian Expeditionary  Force who return invalided from the  front." The very able president of  that Commission is Sir James A.  Lougheed, and it has an efficient and  enterprising secretary in Mr. E. H.  Scammell. . The Commission has  learnt much by experience, and is today undoubtedly working on right  lines.    At ~first, the general idea was  longs to Class II. or III., that is,  if he has to receive further treatment  as a convalescent,-or has a permanent disability of any kind, he is passed on _to the appropriate institutions.  If he is an ordinary convalescent he  will be sent to the hospital nearest  his home; but if he requires special,  such as orthopaedic treatment, he will  go where that is supplied. "  What I wish to especially emphasize is that at all these hospitals-,  schools are held where training of an  elementary and non-vocational character is given in English, French,  mechanical drawing, arithmetic,  wood-carving, etc. These classes are  open to all inmates, whether they are  able to return to their former occupations or not. But, from these  homes and hospitals, the. men who  are not so able can be sent on, after  they have been pensioned and discharged, to technical institutions, agricultural colleges, schools of telegraphy, etc., where they can be taught  new occupations which their disablement does not prevent them from following. And that is not all, for employment is practically assured to  them by the Provincial Commissions  (under the Federal  Military Hospit-  -  "v-(itltll>3i3101l^  that convalescent homes, where  dis-  -phc   whole  charged soldiers would spend a short  time.for rest, and refreshment, would  be the chief requirement, and scores  which nave charged  themselves with the duty of finding  work and wages for the returning  veterans.

German Socialists-  The  No  People   of   Germany   Do  .Thinking for Themselves  Let no one bc deceived. The Socialist political party of Germany, thc  four millions of the Social Democracy  and their leaders, count for absolutely nothing in thc conflict now raging.  The kaiser, the general staff, and the  leaders of the Junker party in the  Bundcsrat are more interested in  what some unknown senator or representative says about Germany in  the congress of thc United States  than in what thc Socialists say in the  Reichstag. There has been much  nonsense printed about this matter in  America.  Let mc repeat���������knowing the German Socialist movement perhaps as  well as anybody in America���������let the  working people and their leadership  in the Allied countries be warned*  against fraud. Militarism, war and  selireekliehkeil might have been and  were expected of the kaiser and the  Junkers. Schcidcmann, Sudckttm,  David, and their 4,000,000 of mentally  delinquent followers held out other  hopes. These .So<*ia1iij.t: leaders of  Germany have been most contemptible traitors to their following, to  the past of their party, and** to every  decent principle of human civilization.  It cannot bc repeated too many  times���������the people of Germany do no  political thinking. They arc possessed  of# absolutely no individual conscience in public mailers nf any s4Srt.  And as regards every aspect of# foreign relations, the German Socialist  party is exactly the same as the  other parlies of Germany, except  that its leaders aro more dishonest  and disloyal to principle. lt is, of  course, with profound regret that,  both of my parents having been Gc**-  mans, I have b������*t*n brought tr. dicsr  ronrtucinTi������! bv tin* fnc<<3. ��������� Frrvuk  Bohn, in the New York Times.

In other words,  we arc changing as rapidly as may  bc our convalescent homes into hospitals where, in thc interests of thc  men, their time will be fully occupied their physical restoration  made as perfect as possible, and  from Lhc beginning, the bad effects  its       iiiiaZ    iOT    IHC      pliySiCa.1    SHU  economic ^ well-being of the man,  and to bring to bear on him such  influences that he may perform for  his country a service not less important than those of the firing line,  namely that, instead of being an  idle ward of the State, he becomes  a shining example to the young, of  self-dependence, of courage, and  perseverance in overcoming disabilities.  It would be an excellent thing if  we had a system similar to this, and  based upon the same sound principles,  established in these islands.  What Longueval Looks Like  Longucval is  one of the most ut������  tc������ly desolated  of villages.    At one  point at its northern end two spikes  of stone, perhaps the height of a mart,  stand up white in the sunlight.    The  village  was   once  all   embowered  in  trees, for Delville Wood ran ovcr a  great part of it.   Now there are only  a few stumps    protruding here and  there from the whitish grey area <rf"  battered masonry flat on the ground  whicli marks where the village stood.  That and the two splinters of white  stone arc all that remains.  "How's business, old man?  making anyth;ng lately?"  "Yes; an assignmciil."

If our friends across the border  really desire to put the scheme on a  good working basis the most practical  way o " doing so will be for them to  give our Government sufficiently  substantial guarantees that they are  fully able and willing to bear thoir  fair share of the cost of said reclamation, allowing a wide margin for  unexpected expenditure, which is almost sure t.o occur.

For some years they  hove rather given one the impression  that fhey want us to act as tho cat  was persuaded to do wiih the hot  chestnuts by the monkey in the fable.

R. E. POW  " "We live in deeds, not years;  In thoughts, not breaths; P-  In feelings, not in figures on  We  should  count  time   by  throbs.  He most lives who feels the most;  Thinks the noblest, acts the best."  These words of the poet suggest to  us in what the real value of life consists. Not in its length, nor in its  breadth, nor in the multiplicity of its  activities; but rather in its quality,  its intensity, its concentration does  the real value of a life consist.  The value of a life is to be measured  first of all by its quality, the depth of  its feeling, the nobility of its thought,  the goodness of its deeds. The basic  question of a life is of what sort is it,  not of how long does it last.  Not, primarily then, by its length.  We have a kind of veneration for  longevity, and are proud if we can  reckon among our near relatives one  or more centenarians. And we ourselves shun danger and disease and  death because we want to prolong outlives, , This we do largely because we  ordinarily measure a life's value by  the years of its existence. And so  darker and more bitter is our grief  when we see the young and the strong  cut off. Death is a tragedy even  when it comes to a life full of years.  How much greater a tragedy when it  conies to the young and stiong. This  is the unspeakable tragedy that meets  us almost daily as we ������*ee so manv of  om* young and strong cut off in this  horrible war���������and cutoff so unnaturally. Will it not take the sting out of  onr grief at this time to remember  that the real value of life consists  after all in its quality, not in the extent of its duration.  This may be observed in actual  lives. While it is not for us to judge,  and while we cannot divine the  thought and intents of the heart nor  imagine the hidden aspirations and  unfulfilled ideals in" any life. Yet are  there not some lives, well full of years  too, which are apparently one monotonous round of existence ? No life  >was meant to moye in a vicious cirele.  Each life was meant to be a progression of evolution, from simple beginnings to a glorious end. But-these  monotonous lives show  no enlarging  of the mind, o���������r enriching of the heart;  or* invigorating of the spirit, or  maturity of the, souL . They are dead  selves. Believe me, some put more  real life into a few years than others  put into a whole span. And it is hot  by any means a lack of natural  capacity or .talent.. .  Perhaps the shortest public life lived  was that of Jesus of Nazareth. It  looked a few, short years���������probably  less than three. And yet has any  other name been, uttered ���������by so many  lips. Or, has the influence of any  other life been felt so potently in so  many li yes? 1 trow not,_ And although two thousand years haye rolled-between us and that earthly life  that, influence is. I believe, waxing  more and more. Did not that short  Career appeal to the eyes of the world  the most tragic failure ? Does it not  appear so to some at present? But  how often the seeming tragic failures  have"after all turned out to be the  real weans of life and blessing to the  world.  And so we believe that the seeming  tragic failures of these young and,  strong lives, that.have been so ruthlessly cut off, will eventually turn out  to be the very means of real life and  blessing to our country and through  it to the world. And as we meet today to mourn their loss let us hold  their names in sweet and grateful remembrance. Let us think of how  these measured up to the stern demands of the hour, and of how their  very lives were qualified by the  necessities of these calamitous times.  How they have been tii Jed with a  deeper meaning, strengthened with a  nobler purpose and made more beautiful with a loftier spirit as with  courage they heard and responded to  the call of king and country and God  in these serious and dangerous times.  We will yet bless God for these war  times. Por what were the prevailing  notes of life immediately before?  Were they hot love of ease and- comfort and 4>le.istu-e-seeking, and rank  greed and selfishness ? Do not the  very revelations iu civic and political  life since the outbreak, of the: war  testify to this ? As well as the very  difficulty of Rousting these traits .iV;  various quarters? But what a change.  We have learned, as we might ueyer  have otherwise, that through this  borri We:'wartime' the  meaning of life  i^its^djt*^^ qualities;   And  these;-who; have fallen at the front,  #hoto wf raoiira to-day. were privileged to learn it first.  The''value; of life is to be measured,  in the second-place, by its-intensity.  Intensity oi purpose has not, of late.  I think, been a dominant note m our  lives. We have* largely taken part in  the serious affairs of ; life simply because we, had to gain a living, '.:'���������;���������.,  But we havehad very little seriousness of.-' purpose in' their pursuit. Is  there not a great change working in  this regard? How far more intense  we are in feeling and thoughtfulness  of action.  . Take in illustration of this our  attitude to the; daily newspapers. We  used to lightly scan the various  columns���������the only exception being  the sporting and real estate ones.  How these two used to engross our  attention.; But- now people and  places and events have a deeper  significance for us. We want to  know who's who. not merely what is  who. We have become almost intimate with our men men in political  and military life. We know our  geography better. The places of this  world are not nearly so far off as  they once were. ' Events of the past  are now means of understanding  present events. And gre.-it current  I events are throwing great past events  into the--shade and providing new  landmarks for history. Now we read  accurately and intensely���������our casiuil  glance beiug reserved for the sporting  columns alone; there is no real estate  column.  And this is intensity of purpose that  strikes us with regard to the men who  have gone to the front. How intense  have become so many lives which before the war were in danger of merely  drifting.    May not these two years or  making of hone effect these "dear  sacrifices"^ and 'will enable us tojehter  worthily into the rich material, moral  and spiritual inheritance so dearly  bought for us by the laying down of  these young, strong lives,   ,. 4,  For Those Who Mourn  REV.

And no less bravely,  nobly and courageously have the dear  women-folk of Britain and our own  Canada borne their losses and honored their braye dead. How much we  realize this when the' broken-hearted  mothers and sisters, wives and sweethearts ~who have lost their dearest  ones, whom they would gladly have  died to save, when amid all the  poignancy of their grief they brush  aside the tears saying 'O my boy!  how can I do without him, I'll never  have him back again, but I must be  brave lika him, I would not have had  him stay home, I would not have  kept him back, he has done his duty,  my brave boyl' And when those  fathers and brothers bite their lips  and try. hard to keep back their manly tears and to suppress the signs of  manly grief and say "I'm glad he  went, I wish I could have gone too,  he was a good boy."'  These, I say, are not days of mourning but of pride and glory, that today  in the British Empire, among our  ow!! people;*there is a preponderance  of such spirit. . .  All honor to the men who have made  the supreme sacrifice, and all honor to  their brave comrades who are oyer  there waiting to make tho same saerir  flee if ileed lie.  Why do they do it? . The man is a  traitor to his country and his fellows  who would attribute such sacrifice to  any thing but the highest motives,  anil generally he is the man who is too  much of a coward to go do thesame  thing himself. Nor did they go from  love of adventure; when the va.st  majority of our men "signed up"  there was little prospect of the spicy  adventure which accompanies glonous  victory in store. It was not to tie a  pleasure trip to Berlin and back. There  wus instead Kitchener's warning ol'  three years war and the prospect of  digging trenches and staying witlt  them 2-1 ot* 48 hours at a stretch, in  mud aud water up to the thighs.  Tho winters of 1914 and 1M5 held no  joy-ride prospects to i.ew reur.uits-  But those valiant volunteers, men with  good    prospects    in   life,   who   were  -. -.������������������;i.,.;...--.';.i!wS#ffJI  ���������tAlT-'X-tj^S&M  ...... - ,..;!i">;;?^>**2:JJiH  .

May not the call-to  arms have been the means of a real  salvation for them ? Let us take comfort that so many were found worthy.  May we become worthy of their  sacrifices by the very intensity of our  liyes.  Finally, the value of life is to be  measured by its concentration. And  surely it is the lack of this, more than  anything else, that has been manifested in lives of late.  I believe herein lies one cause of  the failure ni our educational systems  and ideals to which leading men have  been-drawing our atteutiou of late.  It is appalling, wheu we think bf it,  of the relative ignorance that generally prevails in the face of large provision for the study of literature and  science, and th< establishing of public  libraries everywhere.  Take our reading, by way of example. We rend much, and superficially, largely from the magazines.  And so we get smatterings of knowledge, lightness of thought, lack of  attention of the mind. So is business.  It is an age when most are jacks of  all trades���������preachers included���������and j  when few are masters of any. In an ;  age of specialization we have become,  nevertheless, remarkably superficial  and inefficient. So in theology. We  have been eon ton t with repeating  meaningless platitudes and performing empty rites, or haVe been fussing  over fine frothy systeniB instead of'  grappling with the deep, divine  principles of life.

Before she had had time to do  more than slip off hcr dress,' put on  a dressing-gown and seat herself before the mirror, there came a sharp  rap-rap at thc door.  "Come in," said Daphne hoarsely.  She recognized that tap as her husband's, and when Sir Penywern entered, with a. very grave expression  of face, she knew that she must prepare, for a conflict which shc would  have  liked to   put  oft.  "Can 1 have a moment's talk with  you alone, Daphne?" he s->id.  She dismissed the curious maid,  and turned round to i'acu her nu-s-  band.

The British and German Method of  Treating Prisoners of War  Zeppelin raiders who have fallen to  -their death in England or have sur-  ifendered as prisoners are being treated with a humanity, even a chivalry,  which is in thc highest degree creditable to the English.people, in view of  the provocation to make them thc  .subject of reprisals. Captain Fryatt,  who did only his duty in defending  '.his ship from a submarine attack, and  whose status was clearly that of a  ���������prisoner of war, was shot by the Germans, though his resistance' to capture had not cost a single German  life. The Zeppelin raiders, on the  ���������other hand, were slayers of non-combatants against all the rules of warfare. Yet no personal vengeance has  been taken upon the living, and the  -dead have been buried with the rites  of the church and with English ^military men in attendance. If the Gcr-  ;*mans could stop hating England long  ���������enough, they might feel a little sense  ���������of shame at thc contrast.���������Philadelphia Public Ledger.  Once upon a time Charles Mullen,  of Philadelphia, went gunning. It  was a dismal rainy day, and long exposure to cold and wet brought on a  severe attack of rheumatism. He was  confined to his home.  A friend recommended Sloan's Liniment, citing his own case as evidence  of its effectiveness. Mullen bought a  bottle .and applied it to his aching  limbs. Soon improvement, was noticed and he was able to return to business.  Mr. Mullen writes: "Since that experience I have never been without  Sloan's Liniment in the medicine  chest."

When  the order to charge is given tiie'first  man to leap ovcr the trench parapet  into thc free air is the infantry officer���������his revolver in his left hand,  his yellow stick in his right. His  sword is rarely used. The officer  advances at the head of his company ;  or platoon. Such is thc custom of  this Old England, where the superior is not called chief, but leader; he  does not command, hc leads. A  friend of mine told me some time ago  that the average life of an infantry  officer is five days, counting from  the time of his arrival in the firing  line. The figure is exaggerated, of  course; but there is no doubt that the  casualties among the infantry officers  are much greater than among aviators; these are higher than the losses  of .the engineers, and these, again, are  higher than those of the artillery..  But the casualties of thc aviators  themselves are, in proportion,, not  more than oric-third of those of the  infantry.���������Ramoro de Maeztu, in  The New Age.  ���������xiytVStasiSSfiti  ..mm  -���������������������������'.v^JM'n'J-^S  At all druggists,  a bottle  "Well Hit"  A capital yarn is going the rounds  about the Duke of Connaught, which  is too good as a piece of fiction to  pass over.
