Iu lots of places the trenches are only 35 to 100 yards  apart with barbed wire entanglements between us; so you cau  tell how wc have to keep a look  out. We are entrenched in a  big monastery yard, but the  buildings are all demolished,  The point where we are now is  the farthest advanced point along this part of the line, so we  are only holding ibis position till  the both wings come into a  straight line, and then there-  will bc something going ou;  there will be hell amongst the  enemy.

"Never you miau," said Hugh in a  great ruse, "what do you mean by  dodging me like that? You scoundrel,  you, 1 have a good mind to shake tho  lifo out of you."  He advanced, tall and threatening,  and Hannah jumped back.  "Don't you.toueu mo!" ho cried. "1  only wanted to see that there girl  didn't sli]> you. Where is she? Has  she done you already?"  "Certainly not," said Hugh with  dignity, "she warned me you wore Hollowing us, and now you take yourself  home, unless you want a thrashing."  "Vou fool, you," said Hannah, with  euch a concentrated scorn and rage  tliat Hugh was fairly taken aback,  "sho has given you the slip already���������  where is she, then?"  ' "Why, here," said Hugh, turning to  the doorway.  Hut the doorway was black and dark .  and empty of all save shadows, and'  able manner.  "That is to say, you, penniless, arid  on the verge of bankruptcy," said.Mr.  Uetherington, "are proposing for the  hand of a girl who will inherit more  than a million?"  "I know how it must' seem to you,  sir," said Hugh, more hopefully.'  "Of course, you shan't havo her,"  said Mr. Hotherington.  "Thank you so much, sir," said  Hugh gratefully.  "Eh? what do you mean?" said his  uncle susj iciously.  "Oh, just that we want your "consent," replied Hugh, slightly confused;  "I could never urge Delia to act  against your wishes, sir." '  "Ah, you are playing a deep game,  I can see," said Mr. Hetherington,  thoughtfully.  Hugh, conscious of playing no,game  at all, but only of an intense desires to  be rid of the whole affair, contented  himself with another vague bow.  "Of course," you don't forget 1 could  cut Delia off with a farthing," observed Mr. Hetherington. "When I offered you Jones's job I wanted to get  you in my oitice, but1 now 1 wouldn't  have you, not if you offered, mo a  ������1,000 a year."  "No, wouldn't you though?" said  Hugh, doubtful if this were a compliment or t. o revers\  "No,"  said  Mr.  Hetherington with  fame, you might have aspired to ba c  duchess, a princess, perhaps, for I wil,  not hide fronryou that 1 had ambitioiifc  plans on your behalf. There , is an  American girl who may stand near the  Italian throne. 1 dreamed of placing  you upon a throne���������but you have  chosen a quiet, plain, honest English  gentleman. You could not have done  anything, Delia, that would have  pleased me better."  Delia rubbed the end of her nose,  very hard and said nothing, Hugh was  so bewildered that he could not even  think coherently. Mr. Hetherington  took their hands and joined them, raising his eyes with a solemn look towards the ceiling. But as he looked  down again Hugh caught his glance;  and it did not seem to him it was a  blessing that lurked within those  moody and threatening eyes.

It is alleged, for instance,  that on July 29 the chief of the Russian General Staff gave his word of  honor that reserves would not be  called to the colors. This is characterized,, as a. "wilful attempt to deceive our government." The Russian  Emperor is further alleged to have  pledged that "during the negotiations with Austria my troops shall  undertake no provoking action, to  which I plight my faith."

"Madame, 1 read in the newspapers  that your son Joachim has returned  io Berlin wounded, that you went out  to meet him, and * * * that you  regarded with priue "the Iron Cross  pinned on his breast. 1 also, madamo,  nave a son at tho war. lie was  wounded, as yours was. But he has  not been brought back to me. I,have  not been able to take him in. I have  oven spent , three weeks praying to  God for him, not knowing whether he  nves. He has not lougiit, thank God,  under the same colors as your son.  I3ut, as wife and' mother, I cau understand the joy you must have felt at  seeing your son again alive.  'I feel no bitterness against your  soldiers for having' wounded my sou  on the battlefield. It is the fortune  of war, but I rellect that it is in my  poor Belgium that your son has  lought, aud, without doubt, held command. It is here, with an ��������� armed  horde devoted io rapine, to murder,  lo the uttermost length of the most  bestial horrors, that he has earned  iiis Iron Cross.  "Therefore, madame, did you "feel  iso~pro"iid��������� on���������seeing���������liiau-as���������you-are.  said to have felt? Did no afterthought trouble you? And, unless  you were unaware of the orgy of the  beasts of hell in our country, among  wnich Prince Joachim has fought aud  commanded, did you assure yourself  ihat that Iron Cross bore, no stain,  that it was in honor of a soldier's  deeds and 'jould cover up no responsibility in the crimes of which my  country has been the victim at the  naiuls of your people?  "Does it appear to you as likely  that a single German officer, and  your son more thnn any otner, can  escape before God and before history  the responsibility lor a joint work  which has been consummated tor  joveral weeks, methodically and without mercy, In all parts of my. country  at ouce?

It is Now Thought That Germans Are  Busy Carrying Gold Out of  England  A distinct shrinkage is visible in  the amount of traceable gold in England, writes the London Chronicle, lt  is suggested that a great deal of  missing gold is -in tha hands of Germans or has been smuggled abroad  by German agents or by neutrals in  the employ of Germans.  Germans in' business in England  have the same opportunity as Englishmen of getting gold, In view of  the Importance which gold plays in  the war, a German who collects English gold is rendering his country very  valuable help, even if he only locks  It up in his safe. Possibly this is  being extensively done as part of a  deliberate scheme.  There Is the still more ominous  possibility that tho golo thus taken  from circulation ia being secretly  .aiven away from t'.io couuiry to Germany. The export of a large quantity of gold in one consignment would,  of, couvse, b? noted and checked, out  at present there is nothing to prevent individuals from smuggling  away several hundred pounds' worth  of gold concealed about their persons  or in thoir duggage.  Hundreds of German women are  leaving tho country, and there are  thousands of subjects of neutral  countries travelling from England to  Holland, Denmark, Sweden and elsewhere. Many may be German agents.  . The facts aro so serious that drastic  action is necessary. Everyone shoulo  be searched for gold botiro leaving  England. i  During the pust three months'the  net receipts' of gold from abroad officially recorded have amounted to  as much as thirty millions sterling.  Moreover, Ave have notes equivalent to  another thirty and a quarter millions  of gold, and Bank of England notes  equivalent to about another five millions. These notes should obviously  diminish- the circulation of gold  throughout tlie country by taking its  place and driving It back to the Bank  of England. Yet tho stock of gold at  the Bank of England has not in-1  creased by . more than the amount  received from*abroad.  The Increased government expenditure, which now amount to  nearly a million-a day, do3B not account for the enormous increase in  circulation, for it is offset by the  diminished requirements- of currency  in other quarters.  'Hence the belief that money is to  some extent being hoarded; that our  enemies are operating against us in  :he manner indicated.  DEFENDS  POPULAR REMEDIES  t  Enemy   Prostrated   Themselves  The- following account of the capture of a party of German cavalrymen is to hand:     .;   -  A sergeant in a French cuirassier  regiment, followed by two men, was  ���������riding���������along���������the���������edge'���������of���������a_w-ood,.  when, to his amazement, he saw a  German captain, two officers, and ten  men come out of it, holding' their  hands up in token of surrender. The  sergeant, having had some experience  of the treacherous ruses which wer  habitually employed by .the enem  ordered his men to aim at the par  and himself advanced revolver  hand.  "What do you want mo to do?" the  captain called out, speaking in excellent French. "Do you want mo to  throw down my arms?"  "Yes, throw down your arms."  Whereupon tho Gorman officer,  imitated by his companions, threw tils  sabre and revolver far away from  him. ' The sergeant still remained  suspicious, and continued his menacing attitude.  "Ah," sitid the captain, "would you  like me to dismount and lio clown on  tho ground?" "Yes, lio down on tho  ground," said the captain first, and  afterwards all tho othor German  cavalrymen, dismounting from their  homos, placed themselves In that  humblo posture,  Tho three cuirassiers woro approaching lo tnko tho group of prison-  'cs, whon other German cavalry  (those latter dismounted and alro-id'y  without weapons) onmo out of tho  wood In little bunds and joined thoir  comrades. Thus it wor that the throo  o'lirnHRlers brought back to their delighted lieutenant, ono captain, two  offlcors, nnd about RO Uhlans, on  whom wero found 800 to flOO curt-  ���������ridges.

Mr.- Balliett is a director of the Proprietary Association of America which,  includes in its membership two hun-  i.red firms which mako the popular  prepared medicines of America.  Mr. Balliett pointed out that It is.  the duty of the newsoTiper publisher  to refuse the advertising of any fake or  fraudulent medicine, just as it is his.  duty to refuse any fake or frauduleut  advertising, but it 13 not right to shut  down on all.medical advertising bo-  cause thero have been some fakers,,  any more than it would be right to  refuse to publish all department store  advertising becauso certain stores  have made a practice of lying about "  bargain sales.'

Thero is ���������nothing- moro '  doadly than disease; nothing moro .  honorable than to cure It.     ������  Mr. Balliett refuted the idea sought  to be spread about that patent nu-di-,  cines aro, unpopular by showing that  from 1900 to 1912 the amount of prepared medicines consumed in America .  Increased from $100,000,000 to $1(50,-  000,000 annually. He showed that, although tho American Medical Association is trying as an organization .������  exterminate so called patent medicines, the family doctor, individually,  is not fighting them but prescribing  them. He estimated that 40% of.,the  prescriptions written by doctors today ���������  include proprietary medicines.  The writings of Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, he said, have also aimed to destroy confidence in proprietary medicines; but that Dr. Wiley's ideas are  "not infallible is shown by cases where  his analyses were entirely wrong. Mr. .  Balliett mentioned a case where, with  all the power of the government, ho  fought a preparation as being dangerous to health, and was inglorious!/ '  walloped.  There has been "spread the idea that  a clever faker can mix a few useless  ingredients and,, by. smart advertising,  .s elLJt'6^s^fJtLwidjvin_sJldju^^ ;   whereas, as a matter of fact, the modi-  cine business is notoriously difficult,  and where there has been one success'  at it, there have, been a hundred failures. Any medicine which has no  merit cannot ��������� live, because persons  who are duped into buying it once,  will not buy it again, and the pro/it  from advertising a medicine can oa.y  come from repeat sales to the same,  satisfied people. Therefore, any medicine which has been on the niufiiot  for a number of years, and is sf.ll  advertised, must have'incrit behind it,  to account for its success,  ���������In conclusion. Mr. Balliett declared  that no newspaper is doing justice to  its readers in the matter of nicdmal  or other advertising, unless it investigates, not only Iho wording of tho advertisement offered for publication,  but tho merits of the article advertised. 116 pointed outythat tho fow ���������  newspapers who havo'*beeii deluded  into tho policy of barring out medical  advertising have adopted this gonoral  policy, rather than to -torm an investigation bureau of this kind which,  could, in a constructive and usoful of-  fort, Investigate and decldo what is  a good product and" what is a fraud,  in not, only tho medicine businoBs, out  In every other business which advertises Its wares to tho public,,  Too audlonco seemed lo agree with.

The present policy of the allies is to  bide their time, let the enemy exhaust  himself so far as he may by maintaining his offensive in France and Flanders far from his base, and then, when  the attack has taken its full toll and  winter and disease have done their  share to push a vigorous offensive until not a German soldier remains on  the loft bank of tho Rhine.   All this  pre-supposes that the present line of  defence in FriiLce and Flanders will  be  maintained   practically  unbroken.  Military experts say that the Fronch  armies, with tho co-operation of British Imperial Troops, can guard that.  So long as the Royal Navy remains in  command of the "narrow seas and bottles up tho German high sea fleet in  the Elbe or at Wilhelmshaven,   just  that  long  reinforcements  of trained  men can be sent at any time at very \  Bhort notice out of England   to the  point where needed,   The general pub-  lb would possibly be agreeably surprised did they know just now many  trained and equipped men of all arms  are at the present moment available  at British depots, but are being held  bafek   simply  because  the    situation  does not warrant their immediate use  nor the added difficulties of attending  to the comfort and well reing of miny  thousand more troops at the front.  ��������� Tha last three months have witnessed' an unparalelled expansion of   the  British army. * Many    moro    regular  divisions have    been organized  than  ai.yone dreamed    of before the war.  The territorial units   have , in   most  cases been duplicated. and ln   some  , triplicated.   The special reserve have  been  similarly expanded and almost  all these units,    old and new, have  been brought up to war establishment.-  Lastly,' four new armies, each of six  divisions or,three army corps, have  been organized   and are in process of  training, while tlio Dominions,   have  not' been   backward in emulating the  activity of the mother country and India is    also preparing to send army  aft^r army to Britain's aid.    Britain  was   found   unprepared   for war on  ��������� land.   The   public   had been told for  years that the navy guaranteed their  safety, and the last thing    even (he  alarmist   figured   on,    was   that she   WOllld���������sllOl'-t-l V.-be-emnlri vin������r_ am ->rm m, = .  masses of troops on the continent  alongside of and opposed to the great  continental conscription armies.  The outstanding difficulty   is   that  the two million men   Britain may ex-  ��������� pect to have in the held before Uie  close of next year are volunteers,  every mother's son of them, and fight  not from compulsion but by choice  and with a very doflnito idea of what  , they are fighting for.. The' war office  ,wis therefore handicapped at, the  start by a total lack of organization  required for operations on so gigantic  a scale, and also la'cl: of arms,' ani-  munition and equipment of all kinds.  What was available was    the highly  crained expeditionary force of 170,000  men and this was flung into the gap  to hold the gate until the great raw  mass could be' moulded into trained  army corps. Every factory in Britain  was working day and night turning  out equipment and iu the space of  three' months much of tho ground lost  through uupreparedness has been  won back. Most people know how  well the special reserve aud the le-  serve rogiments of cavalry which still  average 2,000 men each, are maintaining the strength of the expeditionary  Jorce. Many also know that the territorials, after three niontns' hard  training, have become efficient troops  and tliat they not only provide, a  large, force of mobile divisions for  nonio defence, out havo relieved the  regulars for many purposes abroad  ana like the London Scottish havo  taken their turn in the Belgium  trenches. But few people know anything about the armies of recent  creation.  Army orders for September and October described the organization on  broad lines. Tlie 10th to the 14tn  divisions the second new army; tho  21st to the 26th divisions the third  new army; and the 27th to the 32nd  divisions came up.by selection from  the duplicate reserve battalions, form  the fourth new army.' The now battalions are raised as additional battalions of the line, infantry and are  known as service battalions. The recruits are clothed and equipped at the  depots, and thence sent to training  centres, where they are incorporated  as far.as possible in regiments belonging to the county from which the  recruits are drawn. The territorial  connection is thus preserved. The  recruits are much older than the boys,  who usually join the army and their  physique is decidedly superior. Thero  has been almost no sickness. They  come from all classes. The gentleman  and the coal heaver stand side by  side in the ranks. The conduct and  spirit of the men .s all that can be  desired, there being very little crime  and wonderful keenness of all ranks.  The officers live among the men and  sha"re all their labors. The men' have  enlisted to-' light and are "tigers to  work. All are pulling together for the  one great object.  All this has not been brought "about  without some hardships and difficulties to be overcome. But tho first new  .army,-under���������General-Archibald���������Hunt--  er at Aldershot has now passed suc-  cessfujy that stage. Tho men of the  now armies do not grumble because  they know the Immense difficulties  which beset Lord Kitchener when he  took office,.and every discomfort is  taken wiui the utmost good humor.  Tho excellence of the material, 4.he  Tine quality and the head work "of  officers and of the N.C.O.'s, the good  progress of training, and cheerful  spirit of emulation which exists  throughout ihe training centres, give  assurance that In due time theso first  four 'of the now armies will not 1 e  dilatory to stand behind the splendid  British regulars now' in France.

Few Wounded Soldiers Die  Dr.  Low  Osier    Anticipates    New  Record Hor Mortality  It is vory natural to suppose that  most of the fatalities of war are tho  result of wounds, but that this Is far  from the case Is shown by some interesting records contained in an article  In tho special war Issue of tho Scientific American of Novoinbor 7, which  gives tho following figures:  In the Crimean war, out of every  thousand of French troops 236 died  by diseaso and only 64 from wouuds.  Among the English troops the corresponding figures woro 179 and 47. Napoleon in tho march to Moscow lost  two-thirds of his army, though he  fought only ono gonoral engagement.  The Russian armies operating against  him lost ln tho courso of five months  four-fifths of tholr strength. The  losses of tho federal armies in the  civil war In two years amounted to  fi'1.2 deaths ln tho thousand, of which  only 8,6 woro causod by wounds, tho  remainder, 4-1.6 being by sickness.  In the Franco-Prussian war tho  losses of tho Gormnns woro 31.7 n  thousand from woiukIb and only 3d a  thousand from Blckr.oss, This is explained partly by tho shortness of the  campaign (seven months) and partly  by tho fact that iho OorimniH were  groatly Hiiporlor ln miinhors nnd woro  ablo to send tholr sick home. In the  ItiiHSO-JapanoHo war tho ratio of  deaths by nlcknoHs to deaths from  wounds was throo to ono among  KuRslaiis und two to ono among tho  JupiuioHo, As for ho pronent. war in  Knropo.

There is no  polito scattering of good advico about  die army, cookery book. Certain  things are advisable���������aud thoy will  bo done. * * * One . gets a comforting vision of hundreds of army  cooks sweeping their kitchen walls  every morning, uot so much for the  s;.ke of hygiene as because it is jo  commanded in the King's Regulations.  And that, after all, Is no bad way or  getting things done.  Those to - whom rny thing connected  with the nobie mysteries, of preparing food is ofdeep interest may study  in following "pages the instructions  ior ihe use oi improved apparatus;  of iron ovens, steel uoilers, combined  apparatus, and other- apparatus. All  ���������.vbe are imbued with ihe spirit of  the army. One apparatus, for  instance, demands ys pound of woou  and 7 lbs. of coal belore it will begin  work in tho ��������� morning, and its sub-,  sequent meals must consist of 5 lbs.  of coal. Thus treated it is required  to boil'water in one hour and' to get  the oven , hot enough for cooking in  ,forly-nve minutes. If it fails' to do  this one imagines that the apparatus  will hear something from the sergeant cook, or be condemned to eat  coke for eight days.  But I said that the book ought to be  called The Book of the Onion, and  that needs explaining. Weii, in the  section devoted to the various articles of diet there is a paragraph  devoted to onions. "This well known  vegetable," it< says, "may je regardeu  either;as a condiment or as an article of real nourishment'; As a slight  liavoring it is considered an improvement to nearly all made dishes."  That is the general principle., In  the recipes .which follow its application is illustrated. Altogether there  are 39 recipes for cooking meat, and  in 29 of these the fragment and estim-  able_onion_ is -included among the in-  gredients, 'Is the.dish baked meat  with potatoes? Onions are on the list  of necessary materials. They are essential to brown curry stew with  rice; meat pie woulu not deserve its  name without them; steamed meat  with haricot beans derives half its  excellence from onions; beef rissoles,  barley soup, and tomato soup all require onions to oring them to perfection. One trembles to think what  may be the fato of the unlucky soldier who hales the' very thought of  onions.  But if the onion is in evidence in  peace, in the placed cookery of the  barracks, it is oven moro popular in  war. At tho end of the manual there  are recipes for field cookery���������the  sort of thing that can be dono in  haste while the enemy is lobbing  shells over tho sky line, There are  fourteen recipes, and all but two of  them include onions.  But, aftor all, the onion is a fascinating vegetable, and it is not likely that Mr, Atkins complains, vehemently If most of his meals havo a  touch of its characteristic llavor. In-  dood, ln tho recent weoks of furious  campaigning it is possible that ho  may havo been longing for a touch  of Its fragrance to reliove the monotony of bully beef.  Yes, as you may learn from tho  manual, many things can bo dono  with bully boof. Every soldier carries a mess tin, a woll mado, watertight affair, which will Btand fire and  can bo used for cooking: Put your  bully beef Into tho tin, add some  wnter and an onion commandeoivd  from tho nearost garden, and boll lt  ovor a littlo flro, Whether you call  tho rosult IrlBh stow or sea pie, lt  will bo warm and comforting, heartening for tho work that Hos before.���������-  London Dally Mull.  their daring, skill and enterprise," are  playing in tho great war. Nothing is  too hazardous for them to attempt,  and they wago aerial warfare with a  keenness which has established for  them' a great superiority ' over the  Germans. n  A brilliant instance Is that of Lieutenant Spratt, one of the Hendon aviators, whose services wero accepted  shortly after the outbreak of hostilities, and whose feat has brought distinction to the International Correspondence Schooh, of which he is a  successful student;  Sighting a Gormen aviator at Montmorency, Lieutenant Spratt promptly  went up in pursuit; Soaring "like n  hawk above his prey. Spratt made it  known" to the German, whose name  was Heisden, ' that he had his gun  trained on him. The German signalled  that he would surrender, and planed  downwards. ' When he was about a  hundred feet from the ground, however, he tried to escape, but Lieutenant Spratt did not hesitate for a moment. He simply droi-ped on the  enemy from the height,of a hundred  feet, sustaining injuries himself, but  securing his prisoner and smashing  the German machine.  It  is a graphic story,  too,    which  comes from Aisne.   A German aeroplane, Hying high, visited the British  lines with 'he object of reconnoitering.  As    the machine hovered overhead,  woll out of the line of fire, a British  aviator shot up to the attack.    The  German saw his adversary,    and attempted to attack from above.   Shots  were    fired,    but   they missed- their  mark.    Steadily    the  British aviator  mounted,  endeavoring  to  get  above  the  German,  shots being  constantly  exchanged as the two machines, looking exceedingly like great birds    in  combat,  manoeuvred   swiftly  arouno  one anotLer.    Suddenly    the British  swung above.   More   shots were exchanged and the German machine was  seen to reel and stagger,    and then  slowly  come  to ��������� the    ground.    Tlie  German pilot was wounded, and once  more the Britisn aviator had proved  his superiority and skill.  ���������.German���������aviators,���������indeed.-scarcely-  know, how to combat the members, of  the Royal i< lying corps. One aviator  says that, although he has' encountered  several  German flying machines,  they all fled.away from him.  French and Russian aviators, too,  are covering themselves with glory,  and the story of how Captain Nesteroff  ���������one of tho n.st men in Russia to  loop the loop���������sacrficed his life in  ���������order to prevent the escapo of an  aerial foo, is one which must thrill the  world. Nesteroff observed two Austrian aeroplanes mFking tlnir way towards the Russian ..positions. He recognized that It was absolutely necessary to,.prevent these aviators carrying information regarding tho Russian  positions to tho Austrians.  Flying towards them, Nesteroff succeeded by skilful manoeuvring in getting so close to one,of the aeroplanes  that ho was ablo ,td llro his revolver  almost point blank at tho pilot. The  latter was wounded, and foil with his  machine to tho ground where he was  captured. As soon as he had fired,  Captain Nesteroff commenced a spiral  upward flight, nnd was followed by  the second Austrian,  It was Impossible for Nesteroff,  however, to take, any .certain aim ut  tho Austrian, and realizing that lt wns  above nil else necessary to prevent  lilm returning to the Austrian linos  with the valuable iiowb he had gathered, ho nerved himself for a supremo  effort, and launched his aorlal craft  full tilt at ��������� his foo, Tho machines  inrnn togollur with a crash nnd descended to tho ground Interlocked,  both avlntors being killed. Nostero:f'fl  brilliant achlevomont boing largely In-  Btrumontol ln tho iuccobb of tho Huh-  slnns.  To Baron Flshor of Kllverstone, today the eyes ol the British empire  are turned".' Britons look to him to  wipe out tlie memory of the 'South  Pacific naval engagement with a  Jritlsh triumph, lt was only a few  days after he had been called In to  unto the place, of First Sea Lord left  vacant by tho resignation of Prince  Louis of Battcnberg that tho South  Pacific engagement took place, and  Germany had to bo credited with the  most important naval victory of the  war. The now Sea Lord could not  fn any degree be held responsible for  this disaster, but wo may be sure he  took It to heart, and that before long  ho will efface its memory with a British victory should the opportunity occur. Wo. may be equally sure that  ho will not be stung by public'clamour to attempt the impossible. H9  cares little or nothing for public opinion. He knows his business, and  when the lime comes ho will provo  it to any part of the world that may  entertain ' doubt  on  the  subject.  Oddly enough, whilo Prince Louis  was forced to resign because he was  not of pure British ancestry, the man  -whom everybody demanded to see as  ais successor is only half British.  His mother was a Siugalese lady of  high .caste, and it is said that in  Baron Fisher's character one may see  the hardy, rugged qualities of tho  Briton intermingled with the more  wily and cautious Oriental strain.  But no matter what his ancestry  might have been, there can be no  doubt thaf, he more than any other  living man possesses the' full confidence of both the navy and the general public. It was Lord Rosebery  who spoke of him as the "Kitchener  of the navy." It is no secret that  Kitchener is not loved. ' Neither is  Fisher. ��������� He is too stern a disciplinarian, too harsh on offenders, too  stony to appeals for leniency because,  a culprit happens to be a personal  friend, and he has an almost uncanny habit of knowing everything about  everybody under his command. "Confound'him!" said an officer who served under him in-J,he West Indies.' "I  believe he could tell you the exact  number of cocktails I drink every time  I go ashore."  Baron ' Fisher's knowledge of the  navy and all that pertains" to it was  not acquired by any system of espionage. He knows ' the fleet bo-  .cause_he_ma_de_lt:Jie_kjLo^Ohe_QffiCi  era because' he works from five  o'clock in the morning to nine o'clock  at night,' becauses he studies nothing  else. He enterei. the navy at iho  age of thirteen, and he is now severity-three. He has spent sixty years  the service, and has held every  office ln .it from that of midshipman  to that of First' Sea Lord. He was  a  captain  at    the  bombardment  of  A popular society woman announced a "white elephant" party, livery  guest was to bring something that sho ovorythlng wan r.lmly to rocolvo tiiem  A ilutch lieutenant writes of the Intern od Ilrltlfihors In Holland to his relatives ln London: "In our cunip we  havo got ..'inn jlrltlsh marines from  Antwerp.

How strict he was In this office thoa������  who were with him have teatlfladL  Ho shot the guilty on sight, and. r������>  stored order lu a few hours. It la  said that some of his personal friend^,  officers of his own ship, mho ver*  found with loot in their possession,  wero dealt with as sternly u though -,  they had been enemies in anna.  Never ln his life has Baron Planer  said a word for publication. H������  could no more bo interviewed thaa  the Sphinx. Ho is, as silent as Kit- .  chencr. Nevertheless he has mad������  occasional remarks tliat are. romesa-,  bercd. For example, lt was I'lsher who ,  said that tho frontiers of Britain  should be the coasts of tha enemy.  He is no believer In what is called  "humane warfare," and he Illustrates  his position by saying: "Whoa yon  have to wring a' chicken's neck all  you think about is wringing it, quickly. You don't ,gh*e the chicken Iiv  lervals for refreshment and recuperation.' It should be tho same wlUk  warfare" Ho Is reported to have  made the remark years ago that It  ho caught the crew of a hostile submarine in lime of war he would  string them up to the yardarm, even  if he had to face court martial after-  .wards. , Sor~e" years ago, when tha  French Admiral Gervais visited Porta-  mouth with his fleet, Fisher was told  off by Queen Victoria, for whom ha  had a great, affection, to do tha hoa-  ors. In an interview her majesty  expressed the wish that the visitor ba  most courteously treated. "Madam,"  he replied, "I will even klas him If  your majesty wishes it."  Nevertheless, Fisher ' waa   always1  adverse to alliances, particularly" maritime ones,   for, as he, said, "You cannot shoot a  friendly, admiral tor ignorance or negligence."   This remark  will  euab.'e  one   to  understand  why  he is not'loved in the fleet. When ha>  was invited to    become    First   Sear-  Lord he accepted only on certain conditions.    One was that he should be  permitted   to  ladically    change    the  whole  theory of naval    defence.    It  was  Fisher  who  adopted  the policy  of keeping, the great bulk of the empire's naval strength in' the    North  Sea.   -Before,   his time the navy was  scattered all over the world. Just as  .It had  been  for one .hundred years.  ,Eisher.Ji_OAto^i,_^sa,\?LJ.Uat_tlie_great_  battle of the future would be fonght  near the coast of England, and. thera  he placed his Dreadnoughts, leaving  only a few cruisers to guard the shipping  routes  in   other parts    of,tha  earth. , Under him    the dreadnought  came into exist-nee.   , ln    fact,    tha  modern  navy is  his  work, and now  he has  been called back to use th*  tool that ho created.
