The only way the horse has to  keep the flies oil. is with its tail and  nose. The horse cannot reach its  back with either tail or nose when  harnessed and hitched, so give it a  square deal by covering its hack,  and  rump  and   sides,  too.  This need not keep anyone from  indulging in fancy ily nets.^ expensive leather ones or carefully fitted  and hemmed ones. But for the practical fanner there is nothing more  sensible for a fly net for horses than  a burlap blanket tied over the harness with short twine strings.  The blanket can be replaced a time  or two during the. summer and as the  cdncs fray out trim them with shears.  Such a blanket on the. body and the  liberal use of "lly knocker" applied  with an inexpensive hand sprayer, to  the horse's belly and lcp;s will make  thc horse worth more as a source of  farm power.  You can make a good lly knockoi  ont of a quart of pine tar, a pint of  crude carbolic acid, and two and one-  half gallons of kerosene mixed to-  gelher.

A thorough master of his craft, he is at case in it'll  contingencies, in the most critical  conjunctures. Witness the coolness  and deliberation with which he sat  down, while the Huns were hammering at his gates, and planned and  executed a counter-offensive that has  knocked the bochc oft' his feet and  wrested from thc foe thc initiative,  probablj* never to be lost again.  Foch is academic. His military genius was nurtured in thc College de  Guerre nforc than on the field of battle or manoeuvre. His mind was so  trained through so many years of  stud}-, says Major Kequin of thc  French general staff in The World's-  Work, that no war situation could  disturb him. In thc most difficult  ones he quickly pointed out thc goal  to be reached and the means to cm-  ploy, and each one of the French general staff felt that it must be right.  For it was during the great  events of August and September,  1914, that Marshal Joffrc realized  what a valuable second Foeli was to  be to him. In the month of August,  1914, he commanded the 20th corps  in Lorraine. He displayed such qualifications that three months later he  was given thc command of an army.  It was at the moment when Joffrc  was preparing his manoeuvre of thc  Alamo, Did foffrc alrcadv have a  presentiment of the events which  were   to   take  place  in.  thc  centre   of  ihe       F-'Snc'1     .'nee      wlic..    lio    nut    in  not so much new forces, as a new  force, the great chief that he had  foreseen in  Foch?  It is  essential  to    state    thc     part  which   Foch   played  before  and   during   this   battle.  As  usual  his  arrival  upon    this    new front on October 4  marked     the     return   of     confidence.  There could then be no looking back,  doubting oneself,  or  doubting    one's  troops.    We  examined  with   him  the  whole   battle     front  in   the   morning  of October 4,    and I  still recall that  brief command which he  dictated in  ihe VRuc  d'Aubigny near Arras,  to  a  staff officer.  "Jt is absolutely forbidden to  abandon a position, no matter what  the situation may be, before being  ejected by a regular attack of the  enemy."  And signing this order himself on  Un* nffircr'< note book, in the presence of thc commander of thc army,  Foch made a gesture which, for  tho*--* that knew him well, meant  that such an order would not be  repeated.  Thc morning of October 4 had  -.uftteed him to instill into everyone,  great and small, his confidence and  energy.  The 10th French army was, by  successive reinforcements, going to  form   north   of   Arras.  The   British   army   would   lake,     as  ;.t<=  direction   the  north  of  I.illic,  .1 : .~���������,.....   ��������� i.-.i-   ���������!.,,   f-,.i  LI..."- I l.XJ ....    .IX .it.-I -ll(- i.li.  followed     by  4 tli     German  Ypres November 1. Hc had numerical superiority, material superiority  and that superiority which is given  by the organization of one homogeneous army. Foch's army comprised  French, British, Belgians, cavalrymen oh foot without bayonets. old  territorials and sailors little accustomed to fight on land.  But, with aii these odds and ends,  Foch, by a prodigy of energy, had  made one single army, giving them  one single spirit. Thc kaiser's will,  supported by fifteen German army  corps carefully trained, failed before  the superior will of Foch, chief of a  coaiized army, organized during the  battle. For the second time after t.n*.  Marn., thc allies were saved.  Should '���������. Be    Fearless    Criticism    of  Graft, of Favoritism, and of  Privilege  Sir Auckland Geddes. minister of  national service in the British government, in a speech in Manchester,  used some very plain language about  the objects in the exemption machinery provided by the British system.  He said:  "The army was not getting the  men it ought to get, because people  said the procedure was not perfect.  It was not perfect because it was  human. One felt deeply for the. men  who were being taken, but the armies  in the field had to be maintained,  and the whole destiny of this country depended upon thc reserves that  we could place behind the armies for  thc  months  vet  to  come.

Shot At By Comrades  Escaped Prisoners  Had  an Exciting  Time Reaching Their Own  Lines  How British soldiers, who were  captured in thc fighting near St.  Quenlin, afterwards escaped, is told  in a letter from Private A. McGow,  attached to thc Cameronians. McGow  who was at Moiis, and has been  four times wounded, writes: "Seventy-four of us were captured, and  we were marched to a siding. We  were made to strip and attire ourselves in old German clothes.  "When darkness came six of us  jumped into a number of transport  wagons that were going up the German lines with rations, and when  near Jussy we crept over thc old  iron bridge that had been blown up  bv our fellows and ������"ot 'last thc German outpost.

He was afraid  this  was  what  some  of  the  tribunals     in  thc  country were  allowing    them  to  have. Only public opinion  could root  that  out.   No  regulation   and  no orders could do it.    They might change  their  personnel,  but  the   only     thing  that could eradicate that sort of evil  was   thc   determination  of  the      men  and women of the country that these  things should be done fairly.   Where  thcy had knowledge that these things  were not done fairly let  them  stand  up and say, 'This is not fair,' and by  putting their finger on the spot, show-  where   the   unfairness  was.   It     could  not be  done  by any government department,  but  by  criticism,  by      the  creation  of  a  public    opinion,   . they  could  make   it   impossible   for      such  things to happen.

Hc could  easily find out if he would only ask  some learned divine to tcl*. him who  planted in thc heart of man wrath  against injustice, abhorrence of inhumanity, and thc love of freedom.

There is no difficulty about getting  in (she writes). It is unnecessary to  use any influence or provide oneself  with a letter of introduction or even  a ticket of admission. The king of  England is to be seen by everybody.  I note the simplicity of his costume.  There is nothing outwardly to distinguish him from all thc others. While  "God Save thc King" is being played  hc stands at the salute, holding himself quite straight, his grave, frank  countenance full. at once of dignity  and kindliness. I look ail around mc.  There is 110 hysterical enthusiasm.  none of that open-mouthed wonder  which doubtless is accorded to every  step, every histronic gesture of the  imperial kaiser. But in all eyes may  be scon- the kind of trust aud esteem  and affectionate, pleasure with which  one looks upon a kinsman or a friend  of whom one is proud.  We have here a truly democratic  sovereign, one who, instead of imposing his will upon thc people, feels  that he incarnates their sentiments  and wishes, who associates himself  with their "labors, and shares their  anxieties and ordeals, who fulfils his  difficult role simply and conscientiously.

German Prisoners Hear Plain Truths  In Their Own Tongue From  Americans  Good propaganda as a rule demands a deal of trouble. Some, the  other day, took shape of its own  accord. There are in the American  army a large number of men with  German names and of German ancestry, but a generation or so of the  States has purged them of Boche  ideas.  They made good soldiers. The  habit of obedience is still in their  blood, but mixed with it is a new  view of human responsibility and a  power of critical expression towards  _.*!._ '  a.____*:....  *.: 1--          rr.

The Germans were slouching  along, when their heads were lifted  in amazement as they suddenly  found themselves assailed trenchantly and abusively in their mother tongue by the new-comers.  The torrent swept them with contempt for their obedience to such a  misconceive.-! hound as the kaiser,  for their taking sides with Prussian  devils against all decent people the  world over, and for their making  themselves the scum of the earth by  their methods of fighting, so that  their relatives in a free country had  to come 4,000 miies to wipe them  off  the face of it.  Fairly Accurate Knowledge of How  Their Work of Destruction  Progresses        "  The head oi the German navy denies the claim of thc allies' naval  authorities that German submarines  are being destroyed faster than they  are being built. On the contrary,  says the German, their submarines  are a greater menace to the aiiies  than heretofore. All things considered, the Germans, are in the better  position to know' about these matters.  Thc .allies have 5. fairly accurate  knowledge of how their work of destruction progresses, but in all cases  of encounter they cannot be positive  as to the outcome.  As regards the building by Germany, they have some information  gathered by means known only to |  themselves; whereas thc Germans  know when their submarines do not  come back, and they know when they  launch a new one. But this is also  certain���������they canot be expected to  tell the world how they are faring in  this matter of piracy; also that the  truth is not in them. They are under  no obligation to tell thc truth, and  even if lliey were, all the world  knows they would not tell it, if it  were against their interest to do so.  i_������������'(n__.->tffjammet.1 wsmfjnsrmn  0    0%~4X������������������\.4m I   II��������� . _  VS.BI-UU' _-*V_M<  bj* local applications aa they cannot reach  the diseased portion of tho' ear.
