"Is It to I"' a pa tier chase?" asked  Hugh siirdonieally, "only wllh a brido  lo win instead* of a challenge cup."  "1 don't think thin. Is a 1>U. nice wuy  to put It.

Hugh shrugged his shoulders again,  and seeing lhat MoX.n't raLhor roving  fancy waa taken by the Idea, ho said  nothing. Hut he thought to himself  that if this contest, so suddenly proposed was to he taken seriously, then  Jt certainly would not ho his fault if  Lord Ambrose (Ud not win.  "Only," observed Delia thoughtfully,  "I Bhould like to be sure this precious  process you are all talking about is  Ken-ilno, that, it will really work. It  may be all humbug,"  "It is not," cried . Hannah, pressing  forward excitedly; "I saw him do It!"  "Good Lord!" exclaimed Mr. Hetherington, astonished at this    sudden  outbreak;   "saw   him   do   what'.'"  "The inventor," Hannah answered  quickly; "Aaron Siddle, what cut liis  throat when tlie brokers were put in.  I was a boy 'then, and I helped him,  and I was here when he opeend the  furnace door and  drew out���������"  "What?"0* asked Hugh, stirred, as  were the othor listeners also, by the  dramatic fervour of the valet's tone.  "A diamond," said Hannah, Ills eyes  nearly starting from his head with his  excitement at'the recollection; "a diamond as big as a baby's head;, I have  a model of it. 'There's plenty more  where that come from,' says Siddle,  and he laughed���������he laughed, by God!"  and Hannah choked with the intensity  of his feelings and came to a sudden  pause,  "Come on," said Lord Ambrose,  who, though spell bound like Lhe  others by the passion with which Hannah re-counted his story, yet now  realized that it was not the wisest.  thing in the world to tell it to their  rivals; "come along, you fool."  He Look Hannah by tho arm and they  went out together, leaving the other  three a little pale and a little breathless.  _   "Then it is true," said Delia, "and if  W'(r"C-alT^gst_lToid"'Of"This~cir/i*rar"proC(;33-  we shall be able to make diamonds���������  manufacture diamonds like beads and  marbles,and things?"  "Aye,", said Mr. Hetherington, wip-  . ing his mouth, "the kingdoms of the  world and the glory of them."  "If all that comes off," said Hugh,  looking at Delia,,"you will want something better tnan a plain business  man, not too prosperous, for your husband."  "Perhaps I shall," agreed Delia, who  to do hor justice, was as free as anyone could :,o from any admiration for  mere wealth and rank,  "I beg your pardon," said Hugh, who  knew this very well and was at once  ashamed of what might have seemed  like an unworthy taunt.  D.'liu smiled at lilm.  "Hut 1 think that a sweet idea of  Lord Ambrose's," she remarked, "and  I think hr.d been really gallant  Hugh, you would have taken it up a  little more eagerly."  "We must get away," Interposed Mr.  1-Iethoringt.on. "Hugh you had better  go home and pack up a bag and then  iiiec-t as at. Kensington Palace Square.  If we take a special to Holyhead I  think we might, just catch the Lyric  .��������� '; Queenstown."

It did not take Hugh long to pack  Ills bag, und, having given his landlady all necessary instructions, he left,  the house again,' and was jiiHt entering the cab he had waiting wlien ho  caught sight or a tall man watching  hlni from tho shadows of a doorway  near.  "Who Is that?" hu said, turning  sharply.

Indeed, he  might even be a decoy sent to get  himself arrested in order to cause delay.   This last idea decided Hugh.  ���������"Clear out, then," he said. .

"Oh," said Hugh, to whom this observation was addressed, "have you  been asked for another to night?  Lord Ambrose Boustead, was it? Has  he gone?" " "  "Thoy got off about half an hour  ago," said the official, "but the gen-  tlemnn didn't say he was... a lord,  though it was the name you mentioned."  "Had he a 'companion?" asked  Hugh; "ratner a small man in a black  suit?"  The official answered in th? affirmative, and then appearing to think he  might have been indiscreet, he hurried  away on some pretext, while Hugh,  turning io Mr. lieilierington, remarked;  "Lord Ambrose and Hannah have  got the start, of us,"  "It is simply scandalous," declared  Mr, Uf'tlioHiigtoii with great Indignation; "it.

Grain Production of the Western Provinces Worth More Thnn Previous  Year  The aggregate of Canadian borrowings abroad last year was lost* hy almost $100,000,000 than lu 1013. The  total government, railway, public utility and municipal issues were $2.">2,-  200,000 as ngnlnst $'*51,40S,(i2!) in 101 tl.  This is the estimate mado In the annual llnancial survey of tho (.lobe,  wliich indicates that a strained position is being relieved by tho ease with  which Canadian borrowers' of aimlity  are financing tholr^roquirenients .n  the United States. Loans by Canadian  corporations would have fallen much  further below last year but for tho  Interest in Canadian securities manifested by llnancial-centres' In the  United States in :.l.e final mouths of  the year. Canadian railways in the  year borrowed $04,000,000 ln London,  and $12,000,000 in the United, States,  That the country has come through  tlie war period with so few important  business casualties and with tne  national creuit actually improved, is  said ,.o'be..due to,, the long process of  Mquidalion which begun in July of 1013  and proceeded without interruption  until the war broke out: The greatest  achievement of the year is regarded  as the Increase in" the productive  capacity of the country, and the most  immediate problem, the bringing into  profitable operation the new railroad  mileage. It. is recognized that there  can be no great revival in construction  for a considerable period, but the  transportation industry is expected to  receive some Impetus for the movement of the crops next year If the  present in.ticatli.iis of a greatly increased output are confirmed.  The grain production of the western  provinces, though estimated at 347,-  274,401. bushels as compared with  497,120,007 bushels in 1913, was worth  $254,045,215 as against $240,022,020 in  the previous year. The value of Ontario field crops for 1914 amounts to  the vast sum of - $335,000,000. The  striking development of mixed farming  in Western Canada wliich enabled that  part of the Dominion to .feed itself  completely in 1914, is' emphasized as  one of the outstanding.features of the  -venr.  ,    .  Tricks of German Spies  How Information Is Conveyed to the  Enemy   In   Devious   Ways  An officer in command of a flying ���������  hospital   column     with   Lho   Russian  troops gives ihe following account of  troubles with spies and other features  of the  lighting in Poland:  "About spies,,1 could tell you volumes after a month in Poland.

"Ono day during a change of positions our troops in hundreds passed  by a man in a soldier's uniform lying  111 a ditch, where he complained of  rheumatism, but refused aid, saying  ho wanted a little rest and would  then mauago to get along, 8he follow steadily declined' help from the  passing troops or would not go on with  the Held hospital wlien askod to.  "Finally along came a Cossack  patrol. There are no cuter fellows  than tho Cossacks. When told tho  man refused to move along and appeared not to bo wounded but seemed  unable to walk,* a Cossack said: "A  wounded soldier or, tired man crawls  along a bit and rests, crawls and  rests. This chap has boon here for  hours, for we passed this way bofore.,'  .. '.Down came the Cossack's whip and  up started the rheumatic incapablo.  Under him was a telephone over  which he had been telephoning news  cf.. ovory thing that passed along tho  road for goodness knows how long.  "What happened? ' Well the Germans got . no more phone messages  from that" scoundrel.  "A suspicious appearing Pole was  brought.In one day who understood  no German and no Russian. He was a  Pole at all points, but still thero was  something which the examining officers could not bo quite satisfied about.  ���������His' superior, turning round' from his  work, suddenly said to the officer'in  German; 'Of course, the fellow is a  German-spy: hang him up.'  "The supposed Pole who knew no  German fell into the trap and a full  confession followed, with the usual  result.  "Our regular ambulance work Is  very difficult. We only go by,,night  and dare not show lights, as the German artillery flres at everything they  see moving. We take advantage of  this. When we can we start a big  fire a few yards away and carry it on  our way. All day during the lighting  we lie somewhere in the trenches  wherever we conveniently can."  Value of Tunnel  The production of minerals, both tn  Ontario and** British Columbia, has  fallen off during the past year.with  Lhe exception ot'.the gold. The British  Columbia gold output is valued at  $0,102,910, as compared with $6,137,490  in 1914, while the Porcupine camp in  Northern Ontario mined gold worth'  $5,750,000 as against $'1,294,113 in the  previous year. .,  The building activities throughout.  Canada are shown in a record of  building permits to have been materially affected ih the past year. In'lOM  the total amount of permits is given  as $86,158,58,1, as compared with $101,-  927,710 in 1913.

Had the  two empires been connected by the  proposed double tube road beneath the  * tgllsh channel there would have  been a vast saving of time, trouble  and expense In the conveyance of  British troops to the ileitis of war in  Northern '''ranee and Belgium.  ,  Dover being sixty-six miles from  London and only tweniy-six from  Calais, a troop train could have run  from England to France iii considerably less tluin half iho tiiii* of a run  from London to Dover. Tho choppy  sea passage and the tedious tasks of  embarkation and debarkation would  havo been avoided, Neither from bo-  low nor from above could any attack  have been made, submarines and aeroplanes being alike powerless to pierce  300 feet under tho bed of thn sea,'Men,  horses, guns and supplies of all kinds  would have arrived in hotter condition  than was possiblo by the old s**a route,  It may be observed thut not ono  word of all this is uttered by any of  the British military expe:*tH.

Winston  Churchill, that Britain will have fifteen more Drc-adnoughts ready for action before tho end of this year, Is no  idle boast. In fact, according to  naval experts, it is an understatement  by at least two ships,  Sinco the outbreak of the war tho  British censor has rigidly ' suppressed the publication of anything concerning the building, launching or  commissioning of warships, but without .broach of confidence, lt Is possible to compile a fairly accurate list  of 1'higland's reinforcements from  Admiralty data nlrondy made public,  When war was declared England  had In commission twenty-eight  dreadnought battleships and battlo*  cruisers not counting the Lord Nelson  and Agamemnon' . which, although  nearly as powerful���������they mount four  12 inch and ten 9 inch and two 10  inch guns apiece���������uro reckoe.ed as  pro-dreadnoughts.  Building or refitting Britain had  thirteen ironclad monsters on August  4, and another four just laid down.  These vessels were reinforced by the  purchase of two battleships building  in Knglaud for Cliilo and Lhe forcible  acquisition of two building for Turkey. ,.  Work at the shipyards is proceeding so feverishly that the four battleships of the 1914 programme may he  completed before the end of the war,  but Mr. Churchill does not reckon  them in his estimate of ships ready  this year. It wil] be seen, then, that  he has seventeen vessels, including  the Turkish and Chilean acquisitions.  Of these ships live, the emperor of  India, the Benbow, Queen Elizabeth  and Warspite , and the 30,000-ton .30-  knot battle cruiser Tiger, were  launched over a year ago and have  almost, certainly been commissioned  since the outbreak of hostilities. Two  are known to have put to sea.  Of tho others, the Valiant, Bar-  ham, Malaya, Royal Sovereign, Royal  Oak, Resolution, Ramillios r.nd Be-  venge were laid down just over a  year ago and some if not all, must  have been launched by now. Te.e  samo applies to tho Turkish dreadnoughts Birije, Osman and ItesiU-  dieh, and to,tlie- Chilean Almiranto  I.atorre (now named Canada). Considerable progress had heen made on  the Turkish vessels, and it wac only  Turkey's lack of money that hindered their completion, Once 'Britain  took tliem over this drawback dis-  r.ppeared, and during the four months  of the war the work of completion  has been  pushed  forward..  The five -t^ueen.

Of Germany's eleven dreadnoughts  and battle cruisers'in process of completion, at the outbreak of hostilities,  five the Koenig, Narkgrad, Grosser  Kurfurst, Derfflinger and Lut/.ow,  were launched in 1913,- and the first  four are almost certainly in commission or Hearing completion now. Of  the others, only the Kron Priuz  (launched In February, 1914), can be  ready within a reasonable time. Moreover all those mentioned are only  armed with 12 Inch .guns, unless a  last moment change in their construction has been made.  Anti-Typhoid Vaccinaif-ffa  One of the moro recent discoveries?,  of modern medicine is tlio control jf  tin* spread of typhoid or enteric fever  uy means of a vaccine.  How important this preventive measure is Judged by tlio fact in  the Boor war, before aati-typhold  vaccination was placed on a satisi'ac.--  tory basis, more mon were incapacitated by fover wounds; 'una.  oy tho fact that a few yours ago 15,.-  000 vaccinated troops were mobilized  by. the' Unflod States govoriuiioni on.  Lho Mexican border near it city where** .  typhoid was prevalent and one only  jf this army was Infected.  lOnteric fever ii; caused by the .y-  phoid bacillus, a small rod-shaped  vegetable organism ������ which . gains entrance to tho body by the mouth, generally in infected milk or water, Tins  germ multiplies in tho blood very,  rapidly, so rapidly in fact that lho  numbers can double every half hour,,  and they are poisonous lo the human  system. The poison or toxin'which,  they contain gives rise to all the symptoms whicli enable physicians to diagnose tho condition' as one due to this-  special microbe.* ���������'  Tho colls of tho body, so attacked  manufacture a substance to offset the.  toxin formed by the miscroscopic invaders and if conditions are favorable  In a few weeks have produced a sufficient quantity to destroy the offendlng*.  bactcria and thus allow the natural. ���������  functions of the body to become normal again. If on tho other hand the.  poison lipids tho upper., hand long,  enough the patient is overwhelmed by  the onslaught, the vital organs are unpaired beyond any chance of recovery;,  .ind another prc'voniablo death is registered.  "tVltn , anti-typhoid vaccination,  science has been able lo greatly minimize Uie chances of infection, This is.*,  now the' miracle is brought about, A.  virulent or deadly strain of typhoid..  germs are grown in the laboratory  from'the blood of a patient. The microbes are killed by heat and are then:  shaken up in a weak solution of ordinary salt and distilled  water.  By moans of special complicated'."  methods trained laboratory workers,  are able to estimate the number of  bacteria in the mixture. One thousand,  million microbes in flfteon drops of.  tho preparation is the standard usually-  adopted and here one has a- vaccine  which when injected under the skin,  stimulates the tissues of the body to.  form tlie same substance that was "produced to combat the attack of the;  living germs. Three such injections,  or inoculations at intervals, giving:  littlo and sometimes no discomfort,,  protect the individual for several:  years. Typhoid-fever is then no longer a menace.    -  Tlre~eanatiinn~troops���������training���������for.���������  service overseas are all being vaccinated and they, can with conlidencc*-  look forward to a campaign unhampered by typhoid epidemics such as.,  nave in previous wars been more demoralizing to the army than the bul-  icts'of the enemy.

Of course, I can't toll  you any details, but It Is the same  thing���������waiting and watching. We  know wo Bhall got our chance eventually; then wo hope to bo in the lime-  light a littlo. Tho point Uiat 13 so  aggravating to us is that to tho unthinking person wo aro doing nothing,  llorr Uallin, tho manager of tho Hamburg-American line, says that we are  lurking In our harbors. That may be  bo but how does that statement coincide with this one of mine: From tho  first week In-August to the middle of  , Novoinber my ship has steamed no  ' fewer than 17,000 miles, aud that In  tlio-North Sea! And of courso wo  have not .been alone. The Grand  Fleet have been with us, and, although they l.avo*not coverod so many  miles, yet they have been at soa just  as long as my ship, but owing to* our  high speed and tho duties we have  to perform���������scouting, . rcconnoltoring,  olc.���������wo .have'' naturally travelled  many' miles. Ilerr Ballln n-oed not  worry;   if  they  want us,  well,  tlioy..  ��������� know where to find us. Of, course, the  Germans can say the same to us, that  we know where to iind them. Oh, yes,  we know exactly, Kiel, Wilhelmshaven,  Cuxlmven aud Heligoland. People who  don't understand will say: "Why don't  you go thero and attack thom?" Not  much! We have our own plans, and  thoy are certainly not going to take  our splendid, licet Into their mine-infested areas and , under their fortresses. ' Every mile of their coast  bristles' with heavy guns,  '   Think we,are going to attack tliem  ���������=��������� In narrow waters, giving their submarines just the opportunity lliey are so  anxiously looking for? We play our  "game; not theirs. Their fortresses  and shore guns and all the money and  ���������swill that have been expended on  them are all wasted as far as the British lleet in concerned. We are not out  to light fortresses; at all events not  stationary ones. We don't mind their  floating fortresses���������to wit, their  chips. Besides, what do you, put guns  in a ship for? Simply so that you can  move from place to place. Ships, after all, are only movable fortresses. If  they olect to remain in thoir defended harbors, woll, they must; but no  matter how long thoy stay thoy will  not wear down our vigilance. That  lliey will bo boiind to como out sooner  or later thero can be no doubt Tliey  are not increasing their offlcloncy by  remaining In harbor, and it is well  known In naval history that io remain  lu harbor is fatal to your chances of  success.  Wo are adding to .our efficiency  ovory day. Wo take c-vory opportunity of practice, gunnery, torpodo, etc.,  and also battle luetics, accustoming  ovory ono to his exact duties. Our  ships know exactly what our commander In chief's plans are. Constant  practice under varying' conditions of  weather, light aud position have enabled every captain to know exactly  what to do under each condition in  which we might* find ourselves. Don't  think that Is somothing? The enemy  cannot do that, bottled up as, they are.  Ddh't you worry. Our Admiralty and  tho commander in chief of the home  fleet know exactly what they are  about, and if you are asked, "What is  tho navy doing?" all you have to tell  them is that we are simply doing  what our navy was built for, "to ride  tlio waves and to defend our shores."  But when the suitable time arrives  we shall do more than that, I feel  confident. Our navy is and must bo  our ilrst line of defence, and without  it we are,.lost. We have lost some  ships, bill, then, we expected to. You  cannot expect to make an omelet without breaking eggs. But; still, our  losses' are considerably'less than we  made provision for, and even if our  onemies do lurk in their, harbors we  have given them something to remember each time they have shown themselves. " When you remember the  number of ships we have in the North  Sea and the activity of their submarines, and also the way they have  strewn mines all over the place, you  must, admit that our casualties have  been very light. ��������� It is only thoughtless  people who suggest that we are doing  very little.' Just, suppose that our  ileet were withdrawn for a short time,  do ��������� you realize what would happen?  It is really worth an hour's thought,  and after you have thought for an  hour you will say, "Thank God'for our  navy!" ���������  Rubber Famine  In Germany  l.iports   Entirely   Cease���������Supply Ex-  Price of=Defeat=  The=Eaiser2s=Army  man Spy  A Gorman officer speaking beforo  the war began of tho Secret Service  of bis country, wrote to a lady  friend about it as follows:  ��������� "Tho most valuable secrot ssrvice  agents of my country are not the  regular ones, employed by the Gorman Secret Service���������who would, of  courso, be woll known to tbo British Secrot Sen-ice���������but Uie additional many thousands of unsuspected  German.residents in Britain, particularly some naturalized Britons of  many years' standing.  "Thoso havo , hoodwinked tlieir  nolghbors by posing as being very  pro-British and anti-German, whilo  many of. them have sons serving in  tho British army; navy, civil service,  or intelllgenco department,  "Somo of these men have boon lot  off witih a' shortened period of sor-  vlco with tho Gorman army on condition that thoy came to Knglaud and  studied and survoyed an area of  several miles round tholr rosldoncos,  bo that thoy could act as local guides  to any Invading German force.

Jjo doubt there has been1'some or  rousted  That there Is an almost desperate  demand for rubber in Germany Is now  evident from tho continual attempts  being made to BecurQ the material.  Before tho war got properly under  way, thoro wore several English llrms  Chat unwittingly allowod their rubber  to leak out and ultimately be recelvod  in German hands, but now thoy under-  stand tho importation tricks ot tlie  Germans, and tlio British government  has Issued an order prohibiting tho export from England. -  An outstanding fact to bo'remem-  bored is that nearly all tho plantation  rubber avullablo every year���������about  70,000 tons���������Is produced within tho  British ompiro and is controlled ��������� by  British firms. There la a littlo grown  In the Dutch East Indies, and American houses control a fow eastorn plantations. But the great bulk of the  plantation rubber is brought to London, and in normal times large quantities are transhipped to Germany,  lloucoforth i-o supplies will bo sent  out of the country except under a license Prosumably large quantities  will continue to be shipped to our Allies. Within tho last three months tho  value of rubber sent to Russia���������largely, It Is stated, for army snow boots  ���������has been enormous, and Franco will  be ablo to take all that she wants.  Of about 2,000 tons lying at Antwerp  It is understood that only 100 tons -e-  nmlned when the German' took possessions of the port.  Prohibition of exports means, among  other things, that the representatives  in London of American nrms will aot  .be able to fulfill their contracts, Tho  .United States herself requires largo  quantities of rubber, but there, is reason to believe tliat rubber has been  sent from this country to the United  States and has been re-exported there  to Germany via Italy or Holland. '  Although merchants in the United  States at present will not be able to  receive supplies of'plantation rubber  through London, there will still be the  wild rubber available. Brazil annually  exports about 40,000 tons, of which  rather more than half comes to this  country and rather less than half goes  to the Unitod States. The latter country usually takes about a third of the  world's supply, so; should she receive  the whole of the Brazilian production,  there would remain little for export to  Europe. . * "    '  - Normally, German liners share with  British vessels the carriage of the rubber from Para; today there are only  British ships to carry it. Any attempts  to ship the rubber by different routes  must Immediately becomo known.  LATEST BOOK OF VON BERNHARDI  REVEALS THE PUNS OF GERMANY  "BRITAIN  AS  GERMANY'S VASSAL," IS THE TITLE  What War Wl.l| Cost to the De-  feated  Added to the Increasing expense  of war, tlio cost of peace In the pre-  eont war will probably be tlio greatest* that a losing nation has ever  paid. The defeated power will undoubtedly bo required o pay an  enormous price, for past history  shows that a winning nation invariably demands huge compensation  for its losses.  Count Bernstoff, German ambassador to the United States, has stated  that the Kaiser, if ho conquers  Franco, will oxact an Indemnity of  $*2,n00,000,000; all the Fronch colonies, including Morocco, Algeria  and Tunis would becomo German  proporty and 8,000,000 rides, .1,000  guns'and 40,000 horses , would be  confiscated as spoils of war.  Gormany is noted for oxccsslvo  demands from the nations it defeats  hi war. Tho rocont war line of ������2,'-  000,000 on Antwerp is an ouxmple,  At tho timo of the Franco-Prussian  War Bismarck endeavored to obtain  from France tlio huge Indomnlty of  ������1*50,000,000 sterling. England mado  strong representations to Berlin, and  succeeded ln having this amount reduced to J12200,000,000, payable In  four years, Franco, however, handed ovw tho last coin of the line two  yours and seven months at'tor tho  conclusion of the war, but not until  then wero German troops moved  from the country.  On the other hand, it Is tho popular bollof ln Groat Britain that whon  Gormany has boon conquored Bho  will bo forced to surrender lior entire navy, dostroy hor aminmcnts,  disband lior army, pay an enormous  Indomnlty to Franco as well as restore Alfloco and -Lorraine, and other  Indemnities to' Bolglum and to  England an well as largo territorial  concessions to Russia.

Ho bus succeeded, no  doubt, in endearing hlmsolf to his  soldiers and sailor., to somo extent,  lt is to .the Kaiser that, the soldiers owo their waterproof fireproof  field tent, lie it was who first adopted the smokeless powuer, who introduced turrots on wheels to servo as  movable redoubts, who suggested wire  fences to impede tho enemy's charge,  and who promoted ihe use of war  dogs. It Is to his final consent, too,  that the soldiers owe the infantry's  reduction of obligatory military * service, from throe to two years, The  gonoral staff Is only rosponslblo to  l*.lm.  Until the outbreak of war last August the German army system .was  the cheapest iu Europe, A second  lieutenant was paid only $20 a month  for Instance Tho entire cost of a soldier in tho ranks, pay, clothing and  equipment was only $17.30 a month,  A private Is paid S) cents a day,  and of this ho must pay 2������/& cents  for dinner; if ho appears to bo  spending t'ho remainder too freely the  Inspector, who has a rlgnt to make  examinations, may not only reprimand but punish hlni,  This is tho Kaiser's doctrine Dut  ho haa brought about many military  reforms, and' has reduced tho ill-  treatment of thn German soldier by  his officers. 1,1 o has loved his army  I'or reasons of his own; and his army  has not yet lost all sense of devotion  to lilm.

Written hi 1913, this latest  work of Germany's greatest ndvoca'.c  of oxpansion by war, is, like its predecessor, remarkable for the author's  spirit of prophecy in so far as tho Intentions and acts of his own country  aro concerned.  Much. which the volume contains  might havo been written since lho  war began and would be a fairly accurate account of what has actually  happened. After a careful perusal of  the work lt is impossible to escape  the conclusion that General von Bernhardi either know tho military program of his country and hoped by a  strong advocacy ofcltin his public  writings to push it to speedy consummation, or has been gifted with remarkable powers of divination.  The translation of this work of von  Bernhardi has been dono by a woll  known student of German conditions,  Mr. J. Ellis Barker, who is best  known for his* work "Modern Gormany,"  In this latest work, von Bernhardi  has traversed much of the same  ground covered by his orginal book.  Again is found the doctrine that Germany must strike hard and quick to  crush France, that war. is a necessary  factor in the development of culture  and the upbuilding of a nation, that  peace breeds decadence, and that  treaties were made to be broken and  should never be seriously regarded .,s  binding.  But the author' now goes to limits  which were never dreamed of by the  readers of his other volume. By war,  he says, Germany must acquire supremacy in Eurpoe and the .Mediterranean first, and follow this* with the  mastery of the world. ���������  ."Decadent England," described as  Germany's chief enemy, must ' be  made subservient to Germany either  by war or by an "alliance," under  which she .must give up her naval  supremacy,' quit tl.e Triple Entente,  abandon her allies and disarm by distributing- her fleet ' over the world,  meanwhile leaving Germany alone in  Will Battleships be Superseded by the  Submarine  inatlot\ of Europe, North Africa and  AbIh Minor, In plain language, General von Bernhardi assorts that Brit,  ain must becomo Gormany'B vassal  either through  war or submission.  Mr. Barker, in a preface to the woTk  calls attention lo tho fact that diplomatically and militarily, Germany has  carried out ovory ono of von Born-  hordl's recommendations caatainod ln  this volume, adding:  "Ills latest book Is parhaps th*  most'remarkable political indiscretion  of modern times."   '  Von Bornluirdi. lias given considerable space In his. book to tho Unitod  States, Ho thlnkB that this country  should light England and that the  United Statos is making tt groat mistake tn lis advocacy of peaco and arbitration treaties, although ho excused the policy on tho ground of tre*-  mendous population, in accessibility  and ln exhaustible resources, which :.*  believes responsible for a "fancied"  security.  With his characteristic aptnosn the  author has In his work hit squarely on  a problem which has been agitating ���������  the* United States for some time, and  which was the subject of the president's" message recently���������the question-,  of prepared ness. On this subject von  Bernhardi has no illusions. Without  any particular reference to the Unitod .  States, he says:  "The greatest crime that con bo  committed against a nation is the neglect of Its armed power, and tho di-  minutioh of Its armed foroes. When  army and navy are neglected, or lose*-  prestige, the national organism sickens."  Wizard as ho haa been in foreseeing events in Europe, von Bernhardi  reveals one mistake in his now book.  Urging war upon tho Entente powers,  "although it may lead to war similar  to the Seven Years' War," ho predicted that there would bo delay in the  sending to tlie Continent of an English expeditionary force. lie based his  bolief In the crushing of France and  the simplifying of Germany's task to  a very large extent on this/ At tho  samo time he says unhesitatingly tbat  if all the pewes of the entMite-  should attack Germany at the same  time���������which Is what has happened���������  Germany "may meet defeat and heavy '  and terrible times."  Russia Making Big Strides  Country   of   Vast   Possibilities   Lacks  Sufficient Sea Coast for Development  of Commerce  The progress of Russia has beon  tremendous in the last decade, says a  writer in the Popular Science Monthly.. Tho years since the Japanese war  havo seen the adoption of a constitutional regime, the rapid spread of industrialism, tho greatest agrarian reforms since emancipation, and a remarkably intelligent study and handling of the problems of primary education, agriculture and Intemperance,"  Along with this lias come a clear  appreciation of the richness of her resources, "In the markets of tho  world thero exists today a famine, in  meat, lumber and breadstuffs," says  the Russian economists, and Russia  has, or can dovelop, all three t* an In-  dolinlto amount, Russia has a geographic basis for a great nation such  as is possessed by no othor people  unless it he our own.  It Is wanting, however, in one im*  portant rospoct; lt lacks nn adequate  coast line. Russia's soa coast is too  small for bo largo a state and she Is  bound to demand moro. Indeed, thai is  what sho has been doing for centuries,  her const ward movement has boon ln  progress for at least four hundred  yours and wc aro witnesses today of  anothor gigantic step In this direction.  Tho Gormans block tho way, and ultimately, conibinod with thom, the  Swedes and DanoB,  That Russia with her population of  170,000,000, increasing at the rate jf  nearly throe millions a year mid with  resources bo vast and undeveloped  that thoy can only bo roughly estimated, will bo kept permanently bottled  up Is not likely, Hor linos of least resistance and tho conquest of an outlet  by way of Coii:iuuitlnoplo. to tho  world's trndo Is ns inevitable as Ir Its  geographic reasonableness, Toward  tho Persian Gulf thu way In also open  and Inviting, Indeed, everywhere In  Asia she has tho unique advantage of  Internal line:, of development and  therefore alno of attack. Geographically tho serious meiuico to British  world supremacy (loos not Uo lu Germany, but In UuhhIii,  ,, The  Morning "Post's "naval  correspondent says: .,  "It is useless to pretend that'the  loss is a small matter, although lt is  true that there arc other ships which  are more valuable, and it is also true  that such incidental losses do,not affect the main issue of the campaign,  but each of these successive disasters  brings more nearly home the question  of a future design and uso of the capital ship.  "There are people who maintain  that tho battleship will be driven from  the soa and superseded by the submarine. The : nine prophesy was made  when the torpedo-carrying swift vessel  was invented, It was said that the  torpedo boats would supersede the  battleship, but nothing of the sort occurred. The torpedo boat was superseded by the destroyer, whicli ln turn  was expected to supersede the battleship..  "That forecast was so far Justified  that it bocanio unsafe,to keep battleships at right within reac*. of destroyers but no war occurred In  which the theories could be brought to  tho only conclusive test,  "The experiences of this war havo  proved that battleships can only navigate mlne-strown and uubninrino-  hauntod waters nt great hazard, Tho  first definite expression of professional naval opinion on the subject to bo  published Is tho view of tho general  board of tho United States navy,  "Tlio general board, with the  length of experience of tho prosont  war, to guido thom, consider that  the command of lhe cvon can only oo  gained and held by vessols that can  tako and keep tho sea tu all weathers  and overcome tho stronger-it enemy  vossols that may bo, brought against  them, The backbone of a navy thai  enn command the sen consists of tho  strongest Hon going and sea keeping  ships of Its day."

German Conception of War  Tho reason why Field Marshal von  Illndenburg has been suddenly Idlol-  Izod is that, In German eyes, lm is  Having the eastorn provinces from  Invasion.

For ono thing it has proved  that the essential element of Judaism  is not distinctively .racial, but religious, Thj Jews living in America,  for instance, are as genuinely and  patriotically American as tho New  Englanders or Virginians, tlieir dis-  tinguishini feature being their religion and the habits of thought and  custom, that belong to their religion.  And they have as much right to practice that as have the Catholics or  Protestants to enjoy and live their  respective faiths.  There are as many as 250,000 Jews  ln the Russian army, and the Jews of  Germany, Austria, Franco and Servia aro proportionately loyal and patriotic. 'Ihe anti-Semitic prejudice  must die away in llie faco of such  facts. And when the war is ovor it  ought to bo comparatively easy to glvo  back to the Jews tholr shrlno and to  allow them onco moro to feel the  pride of' possession in a land that  moans moro to thom in historic and  religious association than any other  land does to any other people.  American Christians will be the Ilrst  to rejoice if Palostinc cnu once again  Lolong to the children of Isrnol.���������  Philadelphia Evening Ledger.  Jns_ulting=the^Emperor_^=_J!
