There are  plenty of signs of the German visitation, such as unroofed houses, shot-  pierced towers, and holes iu walls of  ono of the central thoroughfares which  is littered with wreckage.

He intends to spend his winter taking  out copper ore from his property at  Wynndel.  There seems to be a report circulating freely round this district to the  effect that a number of young men  from here, who have volunteered for  active service with the third contingent, have' been before the doctor and  passed the medical examination. They  wish to make it known that this is entirely incorrect as up to the present  thero has been no call for further volunteers, and they will not be inspected until such call comes.  lads have spent many joyous and beneficial oyenlngs In lis warm shelter.

Idaho Talking  Flats Drainage  Across in Idaho Senator Brady has  started in to make good his pre-election promise to keep after the government until the work of reclaiming the' ;  Kootenay flats was completed.  According to 'the Bonners Ferry  Herald Charles W'Reeder? of Spokane, one of ? the largest land-owners  of the overflowed land of the Kootenai  valley, is optimistic over the assurances he has received that international co-operation will be given in the  reclaiming of the 80,000 acres of over-'  flowed land lying along the Kootenai  river in Idaho and British Columbia.  Senator Brady asserts he has been  assured by Prenaier McBride of the  hearty co-operation of British Columbia* in every practical way"in order to  secure the drainage of the Valley, provided the cost of such work is found  to be within reason, and that the B.  C- engineers will continue their investigations next year to coyer Kootenay  Idkt;and the Cdlu'mbiaRiver.?  The senator further ?��������� assured. Mr.  Reeder that the United States government would put men in the field early  next year*1 to survey? the river .aiid  lands. .���������;'���������..  Senator Elliot has . also been busy  with the responsible authorities across  the line and following is p'art of a letter he has had from S. H. McCrory,  chief of .drainage investigation for the  U.S. department of -agriculture.  "Since returning ?tor Washington I  have given the matter %i this division  making a survey of the Kootenai valley considerable study. As nearly as  I can estimate a survey of this project  from the Boundary line to^ Crossport,  Idaho, would cost approximately .  :$4i250^Y?YY";^-^f'Y-Y* >%:*'*���������**���������������������������''��������� ti:_.��������� ���������'?":---."���������' ���������������������������  This survey would include lines of  cross levels across the river valley at  approximate intervals of one half mile  meanders of both banks ofthe river  with levels and transversing of such  streams as come from the mountains  into the Kootenai river valley. Cross  sections of the river- channel would be  mode at intervals of approximately  one mile. The information would be  compiled and'a report and maps prepared for the project. A study of high  water during the spring of 1015 will be  made a part of this survey. From information collected from the Canadian  government and tho data secured from  this survey and our investigations it  should be possible to decide definitely  in'regard to tho best form of improvement and Its probable cost,  "On account of the peculiar naturo  of the problem involved and the rather  unusual condition confronting the  peoplo of the Kootenai valley, this  division feels disposed to assist in  every way possible., Wo are in a position to start work- on this project at  once and It will bo necessary for us to  to complete the field work before tho  spring floods."  Engineer McCrory conducted a personal investigation ofthe plans for the  drainage of tlie Kootenay valloy a.few  months ago and . wont over the entiro  district with Engineer Young with  the Canadian government,  EngineerMcCrory states in his letter  thai, while lb Is customary for the government to pay a half of tho expenses  connected with work of surveys similar to that which will have to be dono,  here, In the caso of tho Kootenay valley project lho department will ask  only $750. Charles G. Reeder, of Spokane, has agreed to raise $350 of this  amount and owners of overflowed  kind- in lid:' di.slj..*. wlllbei-J-iH-cU-d  to pay the remaining $-100. Tt Is proposed that tho Kootenai Valley Commercial Club raise $150 of this $400 if  the land owners will raise the other  $250.

Illinois:  An office boy in the employ of a big  city concern went on an errand that  should have taken him 30 minutes to  perform. It was nearly an hour before he got back.  "Look here, Jimmy," heatedly remarked tlie boss when the youngster  finally blew into the office, '"does it  take you an hour to run down to tbe  corner?"  "It did this time, Mr. Smith," frankly answered Jimmy. "A man dropped  a quarter down a bole in the sidewalk."  "1 see," sarcastically returned the  boss. "I suppose it took you all this  .time to get it out?"  "Yes, sir," innocently replied Jimmy, "I had to wait until the man went  away."  Boys in the Battle Line  The war between the North and the  South was fought by real boys���������drummer boys, boy privates, boy colonels  and even boy generals. In the beginning of that struggle 40 per cent, of  the enlistment were of youths under  21. At that time the regulations did  not permit the enlistment of soldiers  younger than 18. But before long the  recruiting officers began to muster  those who "looked old enough to  serve," whether they were 15 or 16  or even youths. In the Union army a  compilation of the enlistments shows  that there were 25 boys, "soldiers,"  who were only ten years or younger;  225 who were not more than 12; 1,523  who were 15 or under, 84,401 who had  not reached their 17th year, and  1,151,438 who were IS or under!

That is why one  sees    so    many  women  with  pale, thin  cheeks,  dull  eyes and drooping figures���������sure signs  that the blood Is out of order.    All  suffering women, should win the right  to be well by refreshing their weary  bodies with  the new, rich blood  of  health that promptly transforms them  into healthy, attractive women. There  is no other medicine can supply this  new,  rich' blood  so speedily and so  surely as Dr. Williams' Pink _?ills for  pale People.    Through this medicine  thousands of tired,  suffering women  have found new health and strength.  Mrs.. James Drost,    Chlpman,    N.B.,  says: "Jb'or years I did not know what  it was to be entirely free from headache   or   backache.   My hands were  cold   and   clammy  all  the   time,    lt  was difficult for me to get my work  done, and to walk even a short distance   would . leave   me    completely  worn   out.   My   life was one of constant worry and I ^thought I  would  never be better.   I was doctoring all  the time but without a bit of benefit,  and finally the doctor stopped giving  me medicine as he said he could not  help me.   Do you wonder that I was  in despair.    My mother urged me to  take   Dr.   Williams'   Pink Pills, but I  said, '���������'what's the use, medicine can't  help merofcHowever my husband got  six boxes of the pills, and to please  him I began to take them.    By the j bill of 1874  time I had finished them I undoubtedly had improved and there was the  signs    of    returning    health    in my  cheeks    and    hands.    My    husband  thought the improvement    so    great  that he got,another half dozen boxes,  and  before   these  were  completed  I  was enjoying such good health as I  had not had In years, in fact, I was  a well woman, and have since enjoyed    the   best of health.   I sincerely  feel that I owe my life to Dr. Williams'   Pink  Pllla,  and    shall  always  recommend them to all sick people."

White     Settlers   of   Prince   Rupert's  Land   Prior  to   1S70  to   Send  Deputation to Ottawa  The exe.utlve committee of "The  Pioneers of Rupert's Land, 1836-1&70,"  decided to arrange to send a delegation of capable members, representing the classes of which the association is composed, to Ottawa, with full  powers to effect the settlement of  their claims on the Dominion under  the terms of the concession of the  North West by the British government to Canada.  Resolutions were, introduced and  passed to the following effect:  "That the matter not being of a  party character, this period of truce in  party strife is considered very suitable for its settlement 'in tho spirit of  British justice.' Moreover, this time  of the great war in which th.e empire  is engaged in fulfilling its treaty obligations is deemed fit and proper for  thi honorable discharge of this unsettled item of the inter-colonial understanding by which Rupert's Land  became united to Canada.  "That, while the nation 'which to  keep sacred its covenants, to maintain  its plighted word, is willing to give up  its treasures and to sacrifice the lives  of the best and noblest of its children,' it is obviously an occasion upon  which the 'treaty' rights o? the pioneers should be fully recognized."  The committee confidently expects  that the delegation now proposed will  persuade the Dominion government to  bring down a bill at the coming session of parliament in favor of tho  whites who were not benefited by  Act 37 Vitcorl", Chapter 20, under  which only a certain number of white  settlers received due consideration.

T}ii"-wUa'������  J  In view of the reported discovery in 1  Scotland of a practically unused build  ing, owned by Germans, on magnitlc-  ?ent concrete foundations in a position  from which big guns could command  the Forth bridge, striking interest attaches to a -warning to the British  authorities -given by Dr. Armgaard  Karl Graves, a confessed spy, in a.  book vrhlch was in the press before  the war broke out.    ~  "The Firth of ?Forth    Bridge,"    he  says, "constitutes a grave" danger to  the Rossyth Royal naval base.    For  this reason, its location between Rossyth and the seas is a decided menace.  In the* event of hostilities, in fact before the outbreak of war, it is no ways  impossible to blow   up   the Firth of  Forth'���������'.bridge and bottle all war vessels concentrated at the Rossyth base.  They could thus    be bottleu up for  several days powerless, while a; foreign fleet swept at the Scottish coasts.  The British foreign office will understand what I mean by this: Look to  the middle island   I   found   it to be  ' partly intervened with    soft,    soapy  Neiss, making natural ruts and cavities that were ideal for the placing of  explosives. "I learned also that along  the Edinburgh approach to the Firth  of Forth "bridge   were   two pieces of  ground    and  houses  entirely  owned  by Germans although the deeds stooi  in Scottish names.    Moreover, little  fishing hamlets on.either side of the  bridge havered more than one supposed Swedish fisherman but who in  reality had his name still on the German naval register.   In the event" of  trouble thise   men,   using explosives  stored in the two houses in question,  could have blown the middle island to  atoms."        --.   '  "Dr. Graves," it must be explained,  is an assumed name. The writer-  states that he Is a member of a well-  known European family (not German,  it would appear), and that he had  been disowned by ��������� them as th������ outcome of a, violent family quarrel. He  entered the service of the German  war office in the expectation that  through the influence of a powerful  patron his family possessions would  be restored to him. He executed  secret commissions, he states, at Port  Arthur before the Russo-Japanese  war, in the Balkans, in France and in  Great Britain, and his strongly circumstantial account of_the workings,  of the German intelligence department is of absorbing interest, and to  the lay mind seems almost sufficiently  powerful to carry conviction. Its  historical value, however, would be  foolish %ox the layman to attempt to  assess.  One of the  most   interesting chap-  ters in the book is concerned"with the  famous "Agadlr incident" of 1911.   On  that occasion Europe was brought to  the verge of war and the German war  party exerted every effort to   bring  about a rupture   of " diplomatic' relations with France. The German warship Panther entered the Agadlr harbor, but was withdrawn by tho captain after he had received an ultimatum from French and British warships.  Dr. Graves states that he himself was  despatched by the Kaiser with a sec-*  ret verbal message to the captain of  the Panther who was Instructed on no  . account to use force, even though ho  might   receive   contrary   official Instructions.   Tho   incident,   according  to    Dr.    Graves,    was    deliberately  brought about by tho German Emperor,   as a means of determining how  closely Britain was willing to stand  by Franco in the event of trouble.  "It took a master stroke to bring the  situation up to,the point of w^ar," says  tho author, "for it was a dangerous  ���������*���������'    business,   with   all Germany   roaring  for war���������and then   avert   war when  England and France woro on the verge  of lt.

Of tho bollot which prevailed among  '���������tamo pacificists '-ofora.tho outbreak of  war that Gorman Socialism would  provo powi* ."fill onough to prevent a  -European armngoddon, Dr. Graves  says, "To a closo student theso assertions aro absolutely wrong.

"The objection of the inflammability  of the lifting power- has   also- been  overcome. ������������������ The power of the ordinary  hydrogen gas in all its various forms  has been multiplied threefold by a new  government chemical l_-boratory? This  gas. has also the enormous advantages  of being absolutely non-inflammable."  Dr. Graves   expresses   the   opinion  that aeroplanes cannot prove successful, in attacks upon Zeppelins, because  the   Zeppelins   can   rise to a   much  greater height. .���������"���������"They don't   have to  aim.    They simply dump   overboard  some of tho new explosive bf the German government, these new chemicals  having the property of setting on fire  anything  that they  hit.    They    are  simply throwing something at the city  of    London.    And    remember    that  whenever one of the new German explosives strikes, conflagration begins.  -The "Japanese peril,"   Dr.   Graves  states, is a bogey deliberately manufactured by the German government  "to keep America's hands full in   the  event of the coming European war. It  is all bluff,   and occasionally Japan  must be rewarded for keeping up the  bluff.   Let me emphasize, with all due  knowledge of the alarmist's fears that  the United States need-never fear the  'Yellow Peril' as long as she does not  antagonize the   dominant powers   of  Europe."  The information, as to the danger  which Dr., Graves said threatened  the Forth Bridge, was given "in return  for England's fair treat___ent of me  during my trial." Of the events which  preceded his arrest he says:  "Going ^ia March, I arrived in  Edinburgh and put up at the old Bedford Hotel on Prince's street, a quiet  select Scottish hostelry. I registered  under my quasi-correct name of A. K.  Graves, M.D., Turo, Australia. My  "stunt" was to convey the impression  of-.be.ng an Australian physician taking additional post-graduate coijrses  at the famous Scottish seat of medical  learning. After a few days' residence  at the Bedford, I installed myself in  private quarters at a Mrs. Macleod's,  23 Craiglea Drive, Edinburgh. The  ordinary expense provided for my residential quarters was $75 a���������week.  This, qf course, did not include "extras" suchv as entertaining, motoi'3,  etc.  "For tlie first fortnight I quietly  took my bearings, creating a suggestion that I was a semi-invalid. Hav-(  ing by this time familiarized, myself  with Edinburgh and surroundings, I  made frequent trips to the Firth of  Forth, upon which was located tho  Rossyth base. Now across the Firth  there Is a long bridge. It Is between  the wossyth base and the North Sea.  Warships going to and from the naval  station pass under." it. But moro about  this bridge later���������something for the  benefit ot tho English, admiralty.  "Gradually I worked myself Into the  confidence of ono of the bi-idgo keepers. I shall not give the man's name,  for to do so would be to injure him,  and quite unwillingly ho gave me facilities for studying the naval base and  furnished me with scraps of Information that I wanted to know. For this ho  received no money and lio was not a  traitor to his country. Through the  little acquaintance I struck up with  him I was ahlo to make a thorough  study of the bridge and its structure���������  a stratoglc point, tho bridge. Also,  through the offices ot my good friend  tho keeper, I.was introduced to somo  of his "pals" in tho wntorguard.

The big gun of the enemy, with  its long train of horses, came from  behind the screen of hills to cross  the second gap, flanked by a squad  of cavalry.  Theh the field artillery spoke, its  deep-toned growling scarcely heard  amidst the, deafening thunder that  was shaking the whole battle front  like the booming of breakers on cliff-  crowned coatts. Shell followed shell  with lightning speed and deadly .accuracy, the little band of British  gunners slipping round their guns  with cat-like.activity and coolness'.  The squad of cavalry in the gap  felt the iron hail, and men and  j horses went down in tangled heaps:  The enemy tried vainly to rush  the big gun across the miry ground  to the safety of the hills ahead. The  borses wefit down and the men with  them; then, like hammers on an anvil,* the shells fell upon the long grey  gun that Krupps had built for the  siege of Paris, until it lay a useless  mass* of steel!  out in five years' time. The military  authorities were not ready for it at  the moment/but they calculated that  in five years they would be ready to  beat both France on land and this  country on the sea.  In their anticipated conquest of  France they were relying on the  French religious and political dissensions, on the spirit of anti-militarism  on . the proclamation of a general  strike by the Labor Federation at  the outbreak of -.-ar, on. the physical  and moral decadence of the French,  on the disorganized condition of their  1 army and navy, on the pacific character of most of their educationists,  and on the revolt of the natives ifl  the French colonies. It was admitted,  however, that.there was another side  to the picture. In the event of war  between the powers of the Triple Al-  Aere of Wheat for tfmpire  of France on her eastern frontier;;  the landing of a British army of 120,-  000 men, commanded by . Sir John  French; an attack by an enemy of a -  quarter of a millioE. Russians in East  Prussia wher*- Germany would be content to re. o.. the defensive with  three army corps, the weakness of the  support given by Italy to the Triple  Alliance; and. a r .volt in German West  Africa. ..*������������������������������������  If the war were to. last longer than  six months, the opinion was expressed  that Germany would be ruined, and  the terms to which she might have to  submit if her plans miscarried were  set out as follows: The restoration of  Metz and __urralne to France; the neutralization of Alsace under the rule of  a Prince elected by the rest of Europe; the restoration of Schleswig-  Holstein to Denmark; a war Indemnity of 100 millio__-i to France, would  also take over Togoland and the Cam-  eroons, the surrender to Great Britain,  of West Africa, Heligoland, half ,**.  dozen German battleships and a dozen  German cruisers; a war indemnity of  150 millions from Germany and Aus~  tr'-. to Ru.-sia, and other modifications of Germany's eastern frontiers.  It may be doubted (concludes the  correspondence) if Germany will.get  off so lightly as this, financially, whea  the time comes for settlement  Gernsans'Fled trom Booty  Repairing Airship in Clouds  Patriotic Suggestion by Saskatchewan  Grain Growers' Association  Acting oh the suggestion from one  of the members of the Saskatchewan  Grain Growers* Association, the central' organiaztion* is makinc a unique  patriotic appeal to the farmers of this  province. The appeal is that each  grain grower will set apart one acre  of land to sow with wheat next spring  the proceeds from which will be given  to the Patriotic fund. The central organization has adopted this plan as it  appeals to them as a fair One, in which  all the farmers, whether they had a  poor crop this year or not, may take  part. -  As the association has 850 locals,  it* is anticipated that the acreage under* cultivation for patriotic purposes  will be 50,000 acres and the crop, at  an average of 12 bushels per acre, as  this year,, would mean 600,000 bushels  of grain or almost an equal amount  of money. Truly a princely offering  from the farmers of Saskatchewan.

The Germans immediately ordered the inhabitants to bring  them twenty hostages���������fifteen 'Jews  and five Christians���������who represented  the wealth and the prominence of the  population.  When the hostages appeared before  the commander he told them that a  deep pit had been dug in the cemetery, and that if his orders were not  carried out to the letter five Jews  and one Christian would be shot forthwith and buried together in the pit  prepared for the purpose.  After this grave warning the lieutenant commanded the- terrorized  hostages Immediately, to deliver to  him 200 watches, *200 alarm clocks,  and 228 fur caps, the deficiency in  the figures to be compensated for byl  a payment of 100 marks^(������5) per]  article.

As, however,  there was not an ounce of salmon  obtainable throughout the- length and  breadth of the town of Konin, the  lieutenant "graciously conle-.cended  to delete this item from tho menu.

Breathless* Feat .Two Thousand  Feet  Above the Sea, During Channel  ���������'��������� Patre! '-���������  The man who walked over Niagara  on a tight-rope will" have to take *  back seat in favor of our intrepid  naval airmen. Heie is the bfficisl account of a deed, the bare imagination  of which take one's breath away: "On  one occasion, during one of the airship  patrols, it became ..eeessary to ehango  a propeller blade of one of the engines. The captain feared it would be  necessary to descend for this purpose,  but two of the crew immediately volunteered to carry out this difficult  task in the air, and, climbing out on  to the bracket carrying the propellor  shafting, they completed the hazardous work of changing the propellor'a  blade two thousand feet above the  sea."  This Is an ext act from an account  of the operations of our naval airmen  communicated by the secretary of tho  admiralty to the press bureau. The report states that during the course of  the war tho Royal Naval Air Service  ���������naval wing of tho Royal Flying  Corps���������has not been idle, airships,  aeroplanes, and seaplanes having  proved their value ln many undertakings. While the Expeditionary Force  was being moved "abroad, a strong  patrol %to the eastward of the Straits  of Dover was undertaken by both seaplanes and airships of tho Naval Air  Service. Tho alrahipk remained steadily patrolling between the French and  English coasts, sometimes for twolvo  hours on end, whllo further to the  oast, with tho assistance of tho Belgian authorities, a temporary : eaplano  taso was established at Ostend, and a  patrol kopt up with seaplanes between,  this placo and tho English coast opposite. By this means It was Impossible  for the enemy's ships to approach tho  straits without bolng soon for many  miles.

So far as The Review can learn  Creston has not yet in its midst any  citizens who are in actual want,but  we are advised that this happy  state of affairs cannot continue  i auch longer.  Undoubtedly some of our people  will be up against it this winter and  it is not a bit too early to begin  saving something for local relief.  According to some this work will  have to be undertaken on a considerable scale.  Compared with other places we  have been very fortunate so far.  Every winter, however, a few cases  crop up, but conditions are such as  to multiply this season, and it is  time steps were being taken to look  after our own.  If necessary further effort to  swell the Patriotic Fund might be  discontinued temporarily, as well  as the ladies' commendable labors  in Ited Cross work. Charity begins  at home-  In this matter we would be glad  to have suggestions placed before  the public tli rough the correspondence column of The Review.  town and intend to continue staying with it, are surely entitled" to a  fair: share of the holiday trade of  the townspeople."   .  W������ are hot foolhardy enough to  argue that on every article required  home buying is quite as cheap as  from catalogue houses but we ask  you to consider the matter upon the  broad ground that the only way to  build up a community is to do business within that community so far  as we possibly can.  Citizens should give the matter  their most serious consideration,  asking themselves what it means to  the place they are all interested in  seeing flourish when thousands of  dollars annually are sent out to  help in building up business in othor  centres.  Trade within the Empire is good  motto, trade within the .Dominion  is bettor, but trade within Creston  is tlio best, provided om- local merchants will give their customers a  square deal. That is the vital  thing, and it is au undertaking that  will not" be shirked.

The session  is due to open on  January 21st.  Remember the Boys  Wednesday's Nelson News contained the good news that the Nelson and District Veterans' Association had ari-aiiged for the use of the  Gem theatre in order to put on a  concert to raise money to provide  Christmas remembrances for the  members' of the second contingent  from West Kootenay now encamped at Victoria.  It is eminently fitting that these  members of the old guard should be  active in this commendable work ;  they have been through the mill  and have a pretty good idea how  much these Christmas gifts will be  appreciated.  This article, however, is not intended simply as a eulogy of the  good work of the Nelson Veterans  but rather, if possible, to interest  someone herein a similar good work  on behalf of tlie ten Creston men  who will spend Christmas in camp  at Victoria.  Another half-pound 'of tobacco  all round would not come amiss, or  a few packages of good cigarettes,  or a couple df boxes of No. 1 Creston apples for the crowd, or anything else that could be made use  of. Failing this, let's be suro they  each get a few postcards in their  Christmas morning mail.

Notwithstanding its brevity there  are at least two very important  items on the legislative programme.  One is the Redistribution Bill, and  the other is a measure providing  authority for a moratorium.  In his statement to the press at  Victoria on Wednesday last Sir  Richard pointed out that the crisis  due to the war made it impossible  for any government at this time to  do much more than mark time.  It is to be hoped that the legislature will not construct its moratori-  um legislation on too broad lines.  What is required is a law that will  protect those who are willing but  unable to make their payments due  un land, agreements of sale or mortgages, from being driven to the  wall by persons or corporations unscrupulous enough to take advantage of the debtor class in these  times of stringency.  At the same time the act should  be so framed that it will be impossible for persons to take advantage  of the situation and refuse to pay  even though they can.  In view of the light sessional bill  of faro thero will bo  ample time to  Reclamation  On more than ono occasion The  Review has been on the verge of  pointing out to the provincial au  thoritie8 that in case the province  found itself compelled to provide  employment for the numerous citizens who have hunted high and low  for jobs at any wage without success, the reclamation of Kootenay  Flats could not be commenced at a  more opportune, time���������nor at less  cost for labor.  Knowing, however, that funds  for tho undertaking would have to  be' borrowed, and knowing, also,  that money for loaning purposes  was a toleraby rare commodity, to  say nothing of the preliminaries to  be adjusted before construction  work couid commence, we failed to  rise to the opportunity and now our  thunder has been stolen by the  committee uamed by the- Nelson  city council to devise ways and  means of providing for the unemployed of that city and district  this winter. -   .  . A delegation composed of three  members of the relief committee,  and a like number from both the  city council and board of trade has  been named to wait on Hon. W. J.  Bowser and Hon. W. R. Ross when  in Nelson this week to impress upon  these distinguished visitors the  necessity of work of some kind  being commenced, and to point out  the desirability of at^once starting  to reclaim the Kootenay Flats.  M. R. McQuarrie in broaching,  the reclamation scheme stated that  it, had been reported on favorably  by both American and .Canadian  engineers and nearly all necessary  data had been prepared in connection with it. In the neighborhood  of 40,000 acres of land would be re-  claimed in the vicinity of Creston,  so that the work would pay for itself and he felt that the government should be asked to take some  steps. It would involve the expenditure of $2,000,000 in the district  and would givo employment to  some 400 or 500 men and he  thought that the time was never  more  opportune  than the   present  Ah an ''vidwi.-..���������;.< rtiinarltH :    "Tho  Iriiy ''rUi'idi.in nm,l<* k"*"1h    ..amp-.  i|_;ii    I.lint    Iium    hi-'-n    m< tilled   in   it  *������lll'������.H*lwl    I'll'll        bill        linlfii.liiurt    ...  ...  nii'ii.'cu ii ���������   lioni,.. ������������������������>'!  tl... } ������������������"c.1. .;'-.',"..  k**������*if������*.rH,    who   linvt-    nl ii.-l<   by   tho1  Your Every Need  for Christmas  In every department we aro well  stocked fbr the Christmas trade with  tho goods you need at the right price.

He was supported in his contention by A. M. Johnson who stated  that he knew the Amerioan interests would support the government.  He had acted in an advisory capacity to an American capitalist who  was interested in the scheme and he  felt that if the government would  take some steps the man of whom  he spoke would co-operate, with  them. The Amerioan interests had  spent some considerable amount of  capital in this district in connection  with this scheme and he felt that  they would be only too , pleased to  see some aofcion taken by the government.

"What do you think we had better  do?" ask.ed Hugh.  "How would It be," said Delia  thoughtfully,-"if we were to elope tonight."  "Good heavens!" cried Hugh, jumping up; "do be serious, Delia; this Is  a serious matter."  "But I am serious," she protested;  "we could catch the midnight train  fer Scotland and be safely married  there before papa knows anything  about it. You are married in Scotland  if you just say you are, you know. It  only needs a witness and it is all  right, I have read about It often."  "Not at all," said Hugh very emphatically indeed���������"nothing of the  kiud. All that lias been done away  with; for one thing you have to have  hiin with her mysterious smile.

"Indeed, I dd not," he answeerd, "1  nether guessed nor hoped. Delia, my  only wonder was how angry you would  be with nie."  "Oh, poor boy!" she said, strokiug  his cheek.  "Why," lie went tn, "1 had so little  'How silly," complained Delia, "1  thought you only had to say something  before witnesses1* and it was all  right."  She looked very angry and disgusted, but Hugh experienced a devout relief. If marriage iu Scotland had beeu  quite as easy as Delia supposed, he  was by no means .sure he would not  have  found  himself  forced  to  elope  u6us and headstrong young woman.  "No, no, Delia," he said, "It will  be only fair to put the things squarely to your father and see what he  says."  "Well, tbeu," said Delia, considering, "Ir think you had better go now;  for he may be home any minute, and  asked-Hugh. '.'���������-.  "No," answered Lord' Ambrose, recovering himself; "what's that bell?  there is a beastly cord here I tripped  on."   ���������; ;Y"  "A cord," said Hugh, bending down,  and found iu fact that,a thin but very  strong cord was stretched knee high  across the path. Surprised, he took  hold of It and tried to lift it; aud as  he did so, there was at once again the  sound of a bell, ringing softly ln the  distance.  "Is this some new idea of yours for  ringing up the house?" asked Hugh.  "I'm blessed if I know what it is,"  said Lord Anibroso, and in his turn  took hold of tho cord and pulled,  whereupon there came once more the  souud of :. bell, softly ringing at a  distauce.  "It rings a bell somewhere," said  Hugh.  "But what for?" asked Lord Ambrose.  "Will you buy my flowers, gentle-  \ men?" said a soft voice behind, and  turning hastily Hugh saw, standing  just inside the poatern gate, that .lower-girl of the lovely face and 7*d,eep,  mysterious eyes, who had spoken to  htm a little earlier iu.

How  did Servia behave? It is not what happens to you In life that matters; it is.  the way. in which you face it.  (Cheers). And Servia faced the situation with dignity. (Loud cheers). She  said to Austria: 'If any officers of  mine have been guilty and are proved  to be guilty I will dismiss them.'Austria said, 'That is not good enough  for me.' (Laughtor). It was not guilt  she was after, but capacity. (Laughter). ..   ���������������������������;������������������'  "Then came Russia's turn. Russia  has a special regard for Servia. She  has a special interest in Servia. Russians* have shed their blood for Servian independence many a timr. Servia is a member of her family, and she  "cannot see Servia maltreated. Austria knew that. Germany knew that,  and Germany turned round to Russia  and said: 'Here, I insist that you  shall stand by with your arms folded  whilst Austria is strangling to death  your little brother.'

"And when did you Qrst know you  loved me?" she asked, smiling at him.

"You know we must have no  secrets from each other now. I  thought you despised my temper and  lack of self-control."  "Oh. Delia," he protested, with his  hand pressed to his heart.

"Eh?", said Lord Ambrose, putting  up his eye-glass and looking at him in  surprise; "why I thought you wore  such a sober sort, of Johnny."  "Not tonight, this is my night on,"  said Hugh, without a smile; "I'm going to bo the drunkest .man in Loudon tonight, so that Is fair warning."

'Stand back, you," he shouted, and  ran right at her.  The girl, alarmed, sprang back into  the roadway and Lord Ambrose banged the postern gate on her and locked  it with the key he always carried  with him. As for the great entrance  gates, they were always kept locked;  for any vehicle seeking admission, the  big bell had to be rung. This waa because of the annoyance caused by  tramps, who, when the gates stood-  open, were apt to slip in on fine days  and use the grounds as a convenient  basking spot.' Hugh, standing quite  still, had a vision of the flower-girl's  pale face pressed against tbe bars of  the gate and peering in, as a captive  might peer through the bars of a prison cell. The vignette of her pale face  seen through the iron bars remained  long in his. memory.  "Now we have 'em," said Lord Ain-  brase excitedly, as he returned his  key to his pocket, "this is the only  gate and now they can't get out."  "But���������but " repeated Hugh, not  understanding, and his eyes turned  involuntarily towards the flower-girl  seen through the bars of the postern  gOte, "but  what do you mean?"  ^Why, .burglars," said Lord Ambrose impatiently for his. quick and  subtle mind had grasped the situation  more quickly than Hugh's slower intelligence, which indeed was occupied  just now chiefly by the pale face and  deep, mysterious eyes of the flower-  girl who still stood outside the gate.  "That's their decoy," said Lprd Ambrose, pointing to her, "that bell is to  alarm them, they are after dad's silver  he lent me when I first hung out here.  Come along."  (To Be Continued)  and said: 'Yini lay hands on that little fellow and I will tear your ramshackle ,empire limb from" limb. And  he is doing it.    (Great cheering).

Some native species of trees, little used until  now, will be tested to see whether  they are suitable for pulp and paper  manufacture.

Spies in Canada-  a fact tha������ agencies are at  work circulating falsiS^iterature intended to under-minfe. the loyalty of  Canadians to their own cause and  to justify the hellish assault of  "Prussianized Germany on the peace  and liberties of" Europe. The so-  called German-Canadian Alliance of  Saskatchewan some time ago. petitioned the Borden government to  restrain the Canadian press from injuring the feelings of German Immigrants. The members of this society  apparently expected all the ^newspapers to repress the kaiser's mad  speeches, and to exclude accounts of  German atrocities against the helpless  Belgians. These are only the more  open evidences ��������� of German activity  throughout the Dominion.  There Is even greater need to protect the country against the underground workings of the Prussian,  agents and spies. No matter what the  social qualities of these outsiders may  be, they must not be permitted to  menace the security of the state. Canada is in a condition, of war. The safety of our lives and property and the  integrity of the empire are at stake.  No careless tolerance' or easy leniency  must be allowed to endanger all that  wo hold most dear.���������Toronto News.

It must come only by the  nations living their own lives quietly,  enjoying their own possessions whii������  respecting those of others, and each  confiding in the others? joint civilization. The nations nrist become neighbor-nations, not ruler-nations. And the  rulers who sit in chairs of state must  be men of works and arts, and not  men of the cword. The sword was  never a. wise ruler; it has cometirmes  been a useful servant.���������Detroit News.  PRESSED HARD  Heavy Weight on Old Age  ��������� IW.mi.jiiw.^.i  KIDNEY  V PILLS. :-  . J.

During the recent fighting twelve  Russian guns wero attacked by a  strong German force and wer-i ordered to retreat. One battery was incapacitated owing to the horses being either killed or wounded.  M. Tretiakoff shouted, "We, can't  leave any guns behind, boys'," and  went to the aid of the battery with a  few. horses, ho himself acting as  driver.
