SHELL ENGLISH  The Dead-Number at Least  \ M But the List Js Not,  Fully Known   r     s  ,-y  ""London, December^6, 10:15- p.m.:  ���������For the first time in more than a  century England has been struck by  a foreign foe. A squadron of swift  German 'cruisers crept through the  fog last night to" the eastern coast  and tnrned their guns against the  Britons.  When day broke they began the  bombardment of three important  towns���������Hartlepool, at the mouth of  the Tees; -Whitby, 35 miles southward, and Scarborough, noted as a  pleasure resort, 15 miles beyond. The  towns were badly damaged. ,  At Hartlepool twenty-nine persons  were killed and fifty wounded.  At West Hartlepool nineteen are  dead and eighty injured.  At Scarborough there were thirteen  casualties.  At Whitby two are dead and two  wounded. v '  The total casualties are estimated  at 110, of whom 3i are known to be  dead. Unofficial reports place the  casualties at a higher figure.  An English report says the hostile  fleet consisted of two battle cruisers  and one a.imored cruiser. Thuy are  supposed to have left their naval base,  350 miles away, and approached England at night during a dense fog. The  land batteries and patrol ships returned the attack, but the enemy escaped nnhurmed,  so far as known.  England is aroused over the attack  on unfortified towns without notice.  The London Times says the action  shows the German policy.  American naval experts think the  raid wus merely for moral effect, and  does not presage an invasion by the  Germans.  Friday  The Russians check three of the  German armies, and energetic- offensive movements by the enemy  are halted by resistence and counter  attacks by tbe Muscovite troops.  The. veteran warriors of Servia defeat the Austrians, regaining lost  ground.  The allies drive a'wedge into the  Prussian front.

In addition there 7-1 Saxon. 75 Wur-  lemburg and LIB Bavaiian lists.  The total Brussian and Bavarian  casualties hithe.ito published me  about 1,000,000.

W. J. Bowser's plan of settling the  D mkhobor question. They were  doomed to disappointment, but as a  solace for -minister's "aguene.-s on  this point they had the pleasure of  listening to a very good���������from a  Conservative standpoint���������political  -p^ech. Excepting his remarks on  Lbe Doukhobor muddle, it was  practically identical with the address he'delivered before the Ward  Six Conservative club in Vancouver  last week. His termaganic denunciation of the Liberal leaders were  not as violent as those he is reported  to have made in the coast city, but  they were strong enough to be offensive in a supposedly non-partizan  meeting  Frank  Hutton,   president of the  local Conservative association, occupied the   chair.    The first speaker  he introduced to  the. audience was  Ernest   Miller, our   local   member.  Mr Miller spoke -very" brief!jV-   He-  congratulatecl the' people   of   Grand  Forks on the   fact   that the Granby  smelter had again    resumed    operations,   though   on   a   limited scale.  Considering the low price and   weak  demand for copper, great credit   was  due the management of'the Granby  company for having decided   to   reopen its plant,   thus   providing employment to a large number of   idle  workmen in   the district.    He  com  plimented the   members     of     the  Phoenix deputation who had   interviewed the Granby officials on their  success, and said   that he bad done  what he could to-assist them.  Hon. W. R. Ross, minister of  Jjands, followed Mr. Miller. He  spoke at considerable length on the  land laws of the province, and  claimed that the government of the  day was doing all that was possible  to help the people to get "'back to  the land." Mr. Ross treafed this  subject in same manner it was  handled in this city a few years ago  during a heated provincial election.  It can tnerefore readijy be seen that  politics were not entirely eliminated  from the speech.  Hon. W. J. Bowser prefaced his  address by saying that at the outbreak of the war a tacit understanding had been entered into by the  political parties that a truce should  be called lo party differences. He  then proceeded to violate this truce  on nearly every subject that he  touched. He spoke at length on  the government land "policy," and  the railway "policy," and devoted  a great deal of time to a eulogy of  the McBride administration and to  ridiculing the Liberal party of tbe  province. He recited the law passed  at the last session of the legislature  for the regulation of the Doukhobors,  but when he had finished speaking  those who had listened to him were  as much in doubt as they had ever  been whether the government in  tended to enforce it or not. Taken  as a whole, Mr. Bowser's address  might easily have been mistaken for !XHE~   SUN, "CIR A XI)    FORKS,   ~B. C.  Sfr  C'E.  By John R. Clements, President of the  New York State Christian Endeavor Union  The Voting People's Society of  Christian Endeavor stands' as the  great service organization in r the  church; it is the one only interden-  .ominational, international young people's federation for the development  and betterment of tho youth of today.  Born to "meet the need in one church,  it lias gone unostentatiously and  without deliberate premeditation literally "into all the world," and it has  proven in 'lands afar" tlic same helpful, uplifting, developing agency applied to the young life in the church  that it showed itself to be in the  Vttle Williston Church in Portland,  .Maine, where it had its beginning.  The story of Christian Endeavor  in foreign lands reads, in many of  its details, like a new hook of the  Acts of the Apostles. It has found its  way not only to the continental countries, but in" the islands of -the sea its  strength and helpfulness is beautt-'  fully manifested.  In the Philippines it ,is attached  to the principal missionary churches;  in Formosa , it is steadily gaining  ground and in Madagascar government permission has been given,  and the society is rapidly progressing.  [a the Ellice Islands the society  has a following,of more than 500  members."���������"��������� On the island.-of Funafuti there are 250 people, and of  these 150: are Endeavorers, loyally-  living up to the principles: of ; the  pledge. These Endeavorers arc erecting a churclf-to take the place of one  that has served its day.  The Loyalty Islands - form a  French penal colony; but even here  Christian Endeavor has ! demonstrated  its adaptability; in a new way by  helping to keep young converts firm in  the, faith. Nearly.; 4000 Endeavorers  are found on Marshall and Caroline  Islands, and in almost' every other  island of the Atlantic, the Pacific and  the South Seas some measure-of usefulness is being made possible through  the world-wide scope and fellowship  of this: wonderful society. Africa  has opened its doors to Christian Endeavor in very generous measure.  There are unions of Dutch speaking  I'Sndeavorers and unions of English  speaking ones, as well. A' strange  discovery was made some years ago  by a German Endeavorer when he  found on top of one of the pyramids  the Christian Endeavor monogram.  Australia^ ha.s since . the ' time  when the society was but a year or  two old in America, been a large field  for its activities, most of the denominations there having welcomed it  and incorporated its basic into all  their work for young people. ���������  In South America Christian Endeavor has gained a considerable  footing despite the fact that most of  the countries are Roman Catholic. As  far back as 1891, a society was formed  in Santiago, Chile, and since then the  society has accompanied Protestant  missions everywhere in Chile, Peru,  and other South American countries.  Tn Brazil and British and Dutch  Guiana it is unusually strong.  The story of Christian Endeavor in  Asia is an absorbing chapter of  unique accomplishments.' At Madura  in South India, recently, 1,500 native  Endeavorers assembled for a convention. Two thousand five hundred  people attended a pageant at which  Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress was  presented in song and story-.  In Burma, China, Korea, Turkey and  Persia the movement is well known  and equally successful. European  Christian Endeavor had its beginning  in 1888. The society flourishes in  most evangelical denominations audi  has approval of every country. In {  Great Britian, France Switzerland,  Spain, Italy, Germany, Scandinavia,  Finland, Russia Poland. Hungary .and  the Balkan States its pledge has been  translated not only into the language  of the country, but into shining, living  deeds of progress and sacrifice, in the  lives of many thousands of young  people in each of these countries.  God born, it comes to sound the note  of service  full and free;  .God born, it stretches out its arms to  circle land  and  sea;  On ships that ply the trackless blue  It sounds the call to prayer;  On  islands where  the souls are few  It plants its banner there.  Amid the tongues of strife and greed  Its helpful  balm  is given;  Tt guides young lives to nobleness  And points the way to heaven.  STORMING   A   BATTERY  Heroic French Charge Results in Capture of Heavy Guns  ��������� With the return of the wounded  from tiie sanguinary battlelields of  France come further stories of the imperishable heroism of the British and  French troops engaged in the titanic  conflict.    The storming of the height  of K by the Fernch infantry was  a particularly notable piece of work,  since it resulted in the capture of  seven of the Germans' heavy guns:  The position had been strongly fortified by tiie enemy, -and a ten days'  bombardment by the famous French  "seventy-fives" failed to dislodge him.  So a surprise attack was begun, not in  the early morning nor dead ot night,  but, at four in tl/e afternoon, when  there had come a distinct lull in the  lighting and the great guns on the  hill were, for the time being, silent.  Crawling over tho intervening ground,  taking advantage of all natural cover,  the French infantrymen reached the  base of the hill unperceived, and there  concealed" themselves behind a fold of  the ground to wait the dark. ,/hen at  last the trumpets sounded the charge,  and they rushed headlong up the hill,  fresh after, their enforced rest, the  Germans were so taken unawares that  they had no time to put themselves on  he defensive. The men at the deadly  howitzers' were'.bayoneted before they  could put up any sort of resistance,  and though the machine-guns opened  fire they were soon silenced, and the  gunners joined with their brethren of  the line in a rush from French steel.  The men of one battery afforded an  exception. They-harnessed no fewer  than twenty horses 'to one of the  heavy guns, but failed to move it from  its place in the miry earth; and with  six other'"pieces it was' abandoned to  the -'victors'..- A few minutes later, a  French "seventy-five" was shelling the;  Germans from the very position which  they had just quitted.

This states that the German people be.  lieve tliat tho conclusion of peace is  imminent. It is further announced iu  Germany that Admiral Jellicoc and  the British Fleet have left the North  Sea and are sheltering in the Irish  Sea, that the Russians have been defeated by tho .'Uislriiins, and that the  Allies have also been defeated in  France and are incapable of long resistance. These are examples of the  mis-statements circulated by the German government in order to deceive  the people.  If  Heard at a Concert  "She sings with a good deal of expression, doesn't she?"

U. 1026  The  Prophecy of Fourteen Years Ago  'Now  Coming   Off  "A war 'with France and Russia,  and with England as their ally, Avould  also mean the complete destruction of  the power of Germany." These remarkably prophetic words of Augustus  Bebel, the great leader of the German  Socialists, written fourteen years ago,  are being swiftly translated to tragic  truth. So far back as 1900 i-icrr Bebel  published a booKlct. entitled "The  Permanent Army and the Militia," and  constituting a resume of his speeches  in the Reichstag during-the discussion  of the war budget, in which he predicted the present war and described  its consequences to Germany in - a  manner that is astonishing for its  true description of the events as they  have come to pass..  "A war between two Great Powers  will with mathematical precision, lead  to a general'European conflagration,"  declared Bebel/ What will happen to  Germany should she find Great Britain  among her opponets? Following is  Bebel's answer: "The German fleet, no  matter how large it may be, will be  destroyed by the English fleet that is  certain to be its superior in force, and  Germany will lose all her colonies almost immediately after the declaration of-hostilities.  ���������'Should Japan join her forces with  the enemies of Germany, and this  would be inevitable if Germany fights  England, then all the German colonies  in the far east will be irretrievably  lost, despite all the superhuman sacrifices brought in acquiring them.  But the most fatal result of  such a"war would be the loss of the  German merchant marine and of the  world's markets, which will be captured by England. A war with France  and Russia, and with England as their  ally, would also mean the complete  destruction of the power of Germany.  Both Franco and Russia would be  pleased at the prospect of Germany  warring against England. In that case  their wishes would come true, for  France would regain Alsace and Lorraine, while Russia would see realized her centuries-old dream of possessing the whole of Poland and several important ports at the mouths  of the Niemen and Vistula.  "Victories in the war of the future  will not come to German arms as easily as the newspapers and schoolrooms  would lead us to believe. The superiority over the enemy the Germans  possessed in 1870 is absolutely impossible nowadays. The number of soldiers and the armament are nearly  equal in Germany and in Franco. The  war of the future will resemble more  a wrestling contest than a war, and  irst one combatant and then the other  will appear to be victorious. It will be  a blood-sucking process���������saigner a  blanc, in the words of Prince Bismarck.  "But this is but one side of the  medal. The other side its the economical situation of the people during the  duration of the war. The war will  stop commerce and industry. The  war will stop the export trade of Germany, and under the present economic  conditions Germany, robbed of export,  canot exist. And one of the results  of this will be acute unemployment.  Besides, the import of goods into Germany will cease, and Germany cannot  exist without imports. The foodstuffs  will rise greatly in price, and poverty  and misery will reign, throughout the  land."  At the time this prophecy was made  official Germany made Bebel the target of insults and jokes; but it would  appear that the cabinet-maker philosopher knew the true state of affairs'  much better than the heads of Prus  sian militarism..  "Are you a German?" asked a  restaurant waiter of a new arrival  at Folkestone.  "No," he replied, "but I'm Hungary."  "It's all the same," retorted the  waiter, "1 cannot Servia."

Mast  .-"A thrilling story of how the gallant  captain of II.M.S. Hogue stood on the  bridge to the end with his Hag nailed  on the mast is told in a letter by  First-class Stoker C. F- Cattell, one of  tho survivors.  Our captain was one of the best.  The last we saw of him lie was standing on the bridge, waving his cap, and  pointing downwards with the thumb  of his other.baud. The vessel was  sinking fast, and those who saw him  while avc were swimming in the sea  gave him three cheers. When our  ship was first commissioned for war  service he called the crew together  and announced his determination not  to have his flag lowered to any man.  I was just off. watch when the report  came that the Aboukir was sinking.  We thought she had struck a mine,  and the llogue and Cressy closed  around. We were called on deck to  throw over all floatable material we  had, but we soon needed that for ourselves. We got a torpedo between  two of the stockholds, and then one  in the engine room, and after that it  wa������ a case of every man for himself.  The men stripped and" entered the  water from all parts of the ship. Before diving I went to the,forecastle to  take a look round. Three or four minutes after she was struck the Hogue  went down. The water was alive with  swimming men, but there was no excitement; each man was either swimming calmly or holding on to pieces of  timber. I am positive that several  submarines were concerned in the attack, and that the Cressy sank one. l  saw a conning tower shot away, and  as the submarine began to settle down  some of us in the water cheered the  Cressy. After a quarter of an hour in  the Avater in a fairly calm sea I was  picked up by a trawler and then transferred to the Lowestoft, which was  threatened by a German submarine.  Anyhow, I saw a periscope not far  away, but it disappeared and was not  seen again. The spirit of our men  was all that could be desired, and tfc3  captain was a brave man to his fingertips. All I ask is to be allowed to  serve under him again on another  ship.  "Are you saving up something for a  rainy day?" ^^b  ���������"No," replied Farmer <G6rntossel.

HOGS OF EUROPE  THE  LITTLE  NATIONS   DEFENDED  Stirring Speech Delivered by Mr.  Lloyd  George  in   Queen's  Hall  "There is no man in tills room who  has always regarded tho prospects of  engaging in a great war with greater  reluctance, with greater repugnance,  than I have done throughout the  wholi of my political life. There is no  man either inside or outside of this  room more convinced that we could  not have avoided it without national  dishonor. I am fully ajive to the fact  that whenever a nation was engaged  iu any war she has always invoked tho  sacred name of honor. Many a crime  has been committed in its name; there  are some crimes being committed  now.    (Hear, hear).  "But all tho same, national honor is  a reality, and any nation that disregards it is doomed. Why is our honor  as a country involved in this war?  MficaiiKO   In   Ihe.   first   place     'vn   are  bound in an honorable obligation to  defend the independence, the liberty,  the Integrity of a small neighbor, that  lias-lived peaceably', but she could not  have compelled us, because she was  weak. Tiie man who-declines to discharge his debt nccauso his. credit or  is too poor to enforce it is a 'blackguard. , '  ' "We entered into this treaty, a solemn treaty, a lull treaty, to defend  Belgium and her integrity. Our sigin-  tures are attached to tho document.  Our signatures do not stand alone  there. This was not the only country  to defend the integrity of Belgium.  Russia, France, Austria and Prussia  are all there. Why did they not perform the obligation? R.is suggested  that when you quote this treaty, it is  purely an excuse on our part, it is  our low craft and cunning, just to  cloak our jealousy of a superior civilization  we are attempting to destroy.  "Our answer is the action wo. took  in 1870. What was that? Mr. Gladstone was then prime minister. Lord  Granville, I think', was then foreign  secretary.: I have never; heard it alleged to their charge that they were  ever Jingo. What did they do in 1870?  We called-upon the belligerent powers  to respect that treaty. We .called upon France, we called upon Germany.  At that time, bear'in mind, tho greatest danger to Belgium came from  France and not from Germany. We intervened to protect Belgium against  France exactly as we are doing now to  protect.her against Germany. We'are  proceeding exactly in ihe same way.  We invited both the belligerent powers to state that they had no intention of violating Belgian territory.  What was the answer' given by Bismarck? He rmid it was superfluous  to ask Prussia such a question in view  of the treaties in force. France gave  a similar answer.  ���������'We received the thanks at that  time of the Belgian people for our intervention in a very remarkable document. This is a document addressed  by the municipality of Brussels to  Queen Victoria after that' inlervci-  tion.  "���������The great,and noble people over  whose destinies you preside have just  given a further proof of its benevolent  sentiments towards this country. The  voice of the English nation' has been  heard above the din of arms. It has asserted the principles of justice and  right. Next to the unalterable attachment of the Belgian people lo their independence the strongest sentiment  which fills their hearts is that of an  imperishable gratitude to the people  6f Great Britain.'  "That was in 1870. Mark what follows. Three or four days after that  document of thanks the-French army  was wedged up" against the Belgian  frontier. ��������� Every means of escape shut  up bv a ring of flame from Prussian  cannon.' There was one way. of escape. What-was tliat? By violating  the neutrality of Belgium. What did  they do? The French on that occasion preferred ruin, humiliation to the  breaking of their bond.  "The French Emperor, French marshals, 100,000 gallant Frenchmen in  arms preferred to be carried captive  to the strange land of'their-enemy  rather than dishonor the name of their  country. Tt was the last French army  defeat. i Had . they violated Belgiau  neutrality 'the whole history of that  war would have'been'changed. And  yet it Avas the interest of France to  break the treaty.    She did not do it.  "It is. the interest of Prussia to  break the treaty, and she has done it.  (Shame!) Well, why? 'She-avowed it  Avith cynical contempt for every principle of justice. She says treaties only  bind you when it is lo your intorast  to ke'ep them. 'What is a treaty?'  says the German chancellor; 'a scrap  of paper.'  "Have you any' five-pound notes  about you? I am not calling for  them. .'Have you any of those neat  little Treasury ������1 notes? If you  have, burn them; they are only'scraps  of paper.' . What are they made of?  Rags. What are they worth ? The  Avhole credit of the British empire.  'Scraps of paper!'  "I have been dealing with scraps of  paper within the last month. We suddenly found the commerce of the  world coming to a standstill. The machine had stopped. Why? I will tell  you. Wo discovered, many of us, for  the first time���������I don't pretend to say  that I do not know much more about  the machinery of commerce today  than I did six weeks ago, and there  are a good many men like me���������Ave  discovered tiie machinery, of commerce was moved by bills of exchange. I have seen" sonio of them  wretched, crinkled, scrawled over,  blotched, frowsy, and yet these  wretched little scraps of paper moved  great ships, laden with thousands or  tons of precious cargo, from one end  of the world to the other. What was  the motive power behind them? The  honor of commercial-men. Treatiss  are the currency of international  .���������.tatesmanship.  "Let us be fair. German merchants,  German traders had the reputation of  being as upright, and straightforward  as any traders in tiie world. But if the  currency of German commerce is to  be debased to the level ot that of  her statesmanship, no trader, from  Shanghai to Valparaiso, will eve r look  at a German .signature again. This  doctrine of the scrap of paper, this  doctrine which is .superscribed by  Bernliardi as treaties which serve only  as long as it is to its interest goes  to tlic root of public laAV.  "It is the straight road to barbarism. Just as if you remove the magnetic polo whenever' it was in the  way of a German cruiser the whole  navigation of tlic seas av'ouW become  dangerous, difficult, impossible, and  the whole machinery of civilization  will break down if this doctrine wins  in this war.  "Wo are fighting against barbarism.  But there is only one way of putting  it right: if there are nations that say  thoy will only respect treaties when  it.   is   to   their   interest lo  do  so,   we  must make ti' to their interest to do  so for the future.  "What is their defence? Just look  at the interview.which took place between the- British ambassador and  great German officials. When their attention was called to this treaty '0  which they were partners, they said:  'We cannot help that' Rapidity of  action was the great German asset,  There is a greater asset for'a nation  than rapidity of action, and that is  l.onest dealing.  "What are her excuses? She said  Belgium was plotting against her;  Belgium was ci gaged in a great conspiracy .with Britain and with France  to attack her. Not merely is it not  true, but Germany knows it is not  true. .What is her other excuse?  Franco meant to invade Germany  through Belgium. Absolutely untrue.  France offered Belgium live army  corps to defend iter If. she was attacked. Belgium said, 'I don't require  them. 1 have.got the word of the  Kaiser. Shall Caesar send a "lie? All  these tales about conspiracy hav������  been fanned up since.  "A groat nation ought to be ashamed to behave like a fraudulent bankrupt, it is not true site-says. She lias  deliberately broken this treaty, and  we were in honor bound to stand by  it.  "Belgium has-been treated brutally;  how brutally Ave shall not yet know.  We know already too much. What nacl  she done? Did she send an ultimatum  to Germany? Did she challenge Germany? Had she inflicted any wrongs  upon Germany which the Kaiser was  bound to redress? She was one of the  most unoffending little countries in  Europe. She was peaceable, industrious, thrifty, hard-working, giving  offence to no one, and her cornfields  have been trampled doAvn, her villages  have been burned to the ground, her  arFTreasures have been destroyed, Iict  men have been slaughtered���������yea, and  her women and children, too (Shame).  "What had Belgium done? Hundreds of thousands of-her people have  had their quiet;-- comfortable little  homes burned to the dust, .and are  wandering homeless in their own land.  What is their crime? -Their crime was  that they trustee to the word of a  Prussian king. 1 don't khoAv what the  Kaiser hopes to achieve by this war.  1 have a shrewd idea "of what he will-  get; but one thing is made certain,  that no" nation in future will ever  commit that crime' again. -  "I am not going to enter into these  tales.- Many of them are untrue. War  is a grim, ghastly business at best or  at worst, and 1 am not going to' say  that all. that has been said in the way  of taels of outrage must necessarily  be true. I will go beyond that and say  that if you turn two millions of men,  forced, conscripted, and compelled  and driven, into the field, you will certainly got amongst them a certain  ..number of men who will do things  that the nation itself will be ashamed  of.  "It is enough .for me to have the  story.which tiie~Sermans themselves  avow, admit, defend, proclaim���������th<3'  burning and massacring, the shooting  dOAvn of harmless people���������Avhy? Because, according to the Germans they  fired on German soldiers. What business had German soldiers there at  all. Belgium was acting in pursuance  .of a most sacred right���������the right to  defend your own home. But they were  not in uniform when they shot. If a  burglar broke into the Kaiser's palace  at Potsdam, destroyed his furniture,  shot down his servants, ruined his art  treasures, especially those he made  himself, burned his precious manti--  scripts, do you think he would wait until he got into uniform before lie shoi  him down?  "German perfidy has already failed.  They entered Belgium to save time;  the time has-gone. They, have-not gained time, but they have lost their good  name.  "But Belgium Avas not the only little  nation that has boon attacked in this  war, and I make no excuse for referring to the case of the other little nation, the case of Servia. The' histovy  of Servia is not unblotted. What history in tho category of nations 13 unblotted?

At length, in order to draw attention to the picture, he put a card on  it. on which ho printed the words,  " "The Approaching Storm,' especially  suitable for a wedding present."  "Tommies" in German Hands  How the British prisoners are employing their time in Germany during  captivity is told by a reputable German newspaper, which gives details of  the camp at Dooberitz, near Berlin,  where three thousand Britishers are  interned. The men are engaged in  building wooden huts against the cold  weather, in improving roads, and in  weeding and digging. "Regiments" are  kept together. Non-commlsioned officers do. not work'. The only British  officers at Doeberitz are two doctors.

The Gallantry of France  While the news dispatches day by  day lay stress on the   deeds   accomplished    by   the   British   troops in  Europe, it should not   be   forgotten  that La Belle France has  borne the  brunt of the fighting. Until recently,  at least, there were more millions of  French soldiers engaged than    there  were hundreds of thousands  of the  British.    The latter have been magnificent, there is no denying it, bin  the    valiant   action   of   the French  soldiers   are   little   known    in this  country.  The reason for it is not far  to seek.     While   Great   Britain has  sent the pick of her   troops    to   the  front, France ha-* gone a? one   man  There    was    no   holding   back,   no  question of asking for   recruits,   but  a simultaneous mobiliz ition of every  tnan capable of bearing arms.     As a  result,    there   is    not   a  newspaper  published in France,   except   for   a  few    one-page     publications.    TV>  press services are  disorganized   and  so war correspondents   are   allowed  near the scene of action.

Ifc is reported that when the  attorney general commenced   to   read  the-Act, the-interpreter   attached   to  qhe colony began to   mistranslate   his  remarks,    evidently    with   a  view of  making the law    conform    to   the pe  culiar    doctrine    of   the Doukhohors.

As morning broke and*they awoke  While yet thair eyes we.ie hlinking,  A farmer's pail came to the swale ��������� ���������  And caught them quick "as winking.

The luckless frogs began to quake  And sober up on cold milkshake.  They   quickly   found   their breath  will stop,  Unless they swim upon the top.  They   swim " for   life, and kick and  swim  Until their weary eyes grow dim,  Their   muscles   ache,   their  breath  grows short,  And,   gasping,   speaks  one   weary  ~" sport:  "Say, dear old boy, it's pretty tough  To die so young.    But I' ve enough  Of kicks tor life.  No more I'll try it,  I was not raised on a milk diet."  "Tut, tut, my lad," the other cries,  "A frog's not dead until he dies;  Let's   keep  on kicking,   that's :my  plan,  We may yet see oot-ide^the can."  "No use, no use,"   faint   heart   re  plied,  Turned up his toes and gently died.  The braver frog, utfdaunted still,  Kept kicking with a right good will,  Until, with joy too great to utter,  He found he'd   churned a lump of  butter.

'  BUT BE SURE THEY'RE  The Literature of the Farm  Iu the current issue ''Hoard's Dairyman" draws attention to tiie great  strides that have been taken in recent years towards raising the educa.  tional status of tho farmer. The -writer says: "Ono of the most notable of  the many advances which the genius  of the world has made in these modern times is the extent and quality of  agricultural literature. Upon no-one  subject has there boon such a concentration of human intellect and research as is here shown in the last  quarter of a century. It is astonishing  that the old farm, overlooked and despised somewhat by the rage for profes-'  sional distinction, should thus evoke  tho services of the best intellects of  the day and ago.  The growth ofagricultural journalism, the wonderful conquests of agricultural      chemistry    and     physical  science, the advance of our agricultural colleges and schools, and lastly the  taking up of agriculture studies in the  public schools of tiie land���������all.these  have   shown a wonderful impulse'*'on  the part of. all the people towards a  better understanding  of    what    the  j farm  means  to   the. welfare  of  the  j masses.- "All this lias called for an ex-  ! press'ion of thought and study in the  \ form  of a great  literature which' is  producing a powerful influence upon  the minds of all the people and of the  farm  population  in  particular."

In    all  there are 70,000 cf  them, consisting of two infantry tlivi  sions and.'four cavalry brigades, with  sappers  and  transport  corps.     With  them come  eleven    Indian    Princes,  chosen out of seven hundred who immediately came forward to offer their  lives, armies, and treasures to their  emperor.    This is the first time that  the native troops have fought, against  Europeans, but it is by no. means the  first time that they have battled side  by side Avith the English Tommy Atkins.    They  have  fought  battles   of  unparalleled fury, and undergone, untold  hardships  in  many    campaigns,  marching and fighting    and camping  with    our own troops, to. wiiom they  are no strangers.   In the Indian Mutiny, in the two Afghan wars, in. Bur-  mah,   in  Egypt,  in  the   Chitral,  and  doze .3  of  frontier  campaigns,   from  one side of India to the other, they  have   shown   themselves   capable   of  marvellous ..endurance and tremendous  energy.   Because it is hot in India it is  an entire delusion to suppose that our  rndian armies a're mere fine-weather  lighters.    The  ;rigors of a European  winter are nothing  to    what    these  troops have experienced in times past,  fighting on the northern frontiers of  the Indian empire, on the roof of the  world.   Passing from the heat of the  plains they have climbed up into the  mountains.   They know Avhat rain is,  such as is never, seen in Europe: They  have fought and stormed fortresses at  11,000 feet above sea-level, aud camped with the thermometer at 20 degrees  below freezing point, the rivers frozen, and snow covering    the    ground.  Among the most famous native, regi  ments are the Gurkhas, short, slight,  wiry men of tremendous strength, capable of amazing endurance. The Bengal Lancers are other famous fighters,  men of splendid  physique, and magnificent horsemen, highly disciplined,  and knowing no fear.    It is of these  men that Lord Curzon has said that  he      hopes   to   see   them   marching  through the streets of Berlin.  War  and   the   Eugenist  The economist, the political idealist, the moral enthusiast���������leaders in  all branches of thought, will regard  the present war with doubt and' misgiving. But none will deplore it so  deeply as the eugenist. The man with  visions of race improvement, the believer in the hereditary, transmission  of physical characteristics, must behold the destruction of the strong and  hardy, the preservation of ;the weak  and infirm. He is convinced that the  physical improvement of the peoples  of Europe will, as a'resiilt of the conflict, receive a century's setback. His  fears are well .grounded; ��������� his faith  has the justification of history. Napoleon's fatal genius clouded all Europe with- the gloom of war, wrecked  commerce and industry, crushed political freedom. But worst "of .all, and  most .lasting, was the blow to the  manhood of France. That was reparable only through the course of centuries.  The devastation of humanity is still  the most terrible exaction of warfare.  Progress in civilization, in political,  economic and personal freedom is  dearly bought, if it be attained only at  the price of physical deterioration.���������  Conservation of Life.-' -���������  Germans' Appalling Outrages on Defenceless Peasants  Private J.

One, a private named  Bogaerts, who has Just reached Birmingham, was an eye-witness of several  acts of gross cruelty on the part ol  the Germans. I-Ig had been fighting  five days in the trenches when he was  wounded in the knee, and had to get  to the hospital at Louvain as best ha  coukir After his discharge from hospital he was making his way to tho  coast, and was in Tremeloo when a  strong force inva'ued the place. Quick-:  ly Tremeloo, was committed to the'  flames, and Borgaerts saw a number  of men who had sought shelter in the  cellars dragged up and held against  the sides of the burning building until  they were partially roasted.

De Cock and  four Belgians were engaged with four  Uhlans, when one of Ihe .Germans  threw up his Hands, and clutching at  his throat, showed evident signs ol  distress. .Be Cock ran forward, ad  throwing asido his rifle, was bending  over the prostrtate Uhlan to render  him aid, when the- latter swiftly drew  a revolver.

AMERICAN CONSUL OBLIGED TO LEAVE GERMANY  American Consul and his Wife were   Persecuted by the Germans  because they Spoke the Hated English Language, and  Were  Finally Forced  to Leave  The-story of how German hatred of  everything English, even tho English  language,made life in Germany unbearable for an American consul and  "led to his resignation, is told in a recent issue of the London Times.  Mr. Frank Deedmeyer, who has held  consular posts in Canada, Italy and  Austria, was appointed some three  months ago to the position of consul  at Ohemuitz, "the Manchester of Germany." A few days ago he arrived in  London with his wife on his way to  Washington. He has been forced to  resign his post at Chemnitz by reason  of the insults to which he and his  wife wore constantly subjected by the  people of Chemnitz. Because Mrs.  Deedmeyer could not speak GefmnJ,  they conversed in the streets and in  other public places in their own language. Again and again mobs of well-  dressed Germans collected around  them as they were walking through  the streets and threatened them with j  violence, and when Mr. Deedmeyer;  protested that ho was American con-1  ��������� Bill, he was answered, "That makes no '  .difference to us. No one shall speak  the hated English language in our  city." Further, they were invited by  the proprietor of a leading restaurant  to keep away from his establishment  and Mrs. Deedmeyer was frequently  refused admission to shops.  On August 28, Mr. Deedmeyer called upon the mayor of the city and asked for; protection. The mayor made  rather light of the matter but undertook to'issue, a cautionary notice to  the tradespeople through the local  newspapers. Later, the following correspondence passed''between the consul and the mayor:  American Consulate, Chemnitz,  August  28, 191-1.  To the Hon. the Oberburgermeistcr,  Dr. Sturm, Chemnitz:  Sir,���������Permit   me to thank you lor  ���������-inl'lu'  the prompt exercise of your-mmienc  and for your appeal to the inhabitants j j^V    taken  over  the  of Chemnitz in behalf of myself, '"i*! Germans' in  danger in  wife and,of other Americans.  That my appeal to you for protcc-  tiorf-was justified is proven by the last  sentence of an article-which appeared  in the local Allgemeinc Zeitung, Friday, the 2Sth instant, in which this  newspaper covertly incites this'-population to just tho kind of actions about  which I was obliged to complain to  you. -  All over the United States the consular officers of his majesty the emperor of Germany are now engaged :n  enrolling German subjects of military  age for the present war, and these  German consular officers are in no  wise interfered with in this work bailie American government.  I, as the-Americnn consul at Chemnitz, am hard at work every day to  protect the interests of German "subjects in countries now at war with  Germany; and when, after my day's  task is done, my wife and I appear in  the streets of Chemnitz, and we converse in the language of our country,  we are exposed to coarse abuse by persons who are incited thereto by such  organs as tho Allgemeinc /.eitung, a  newspaper which has written much on  the subject of Belgian outrages.���������With,  the assurances of my highest esteem,  Frank Deedmeyer, American Consul.  Hat der Stadt. Chemnitz,  Aug. 2S. '. .    i  Dear Mr. Consul,���������I. acknowledge  with thanks the receipt of your letter  of this date. The bitter feeling against  England, which in our opinion is chiefly responsible, for the present war,  is self-evident. But there is no one  in Chemnitz who would intentionally  offend an American. I trust that the  newspaper article published at my request will bo sufficient to save you  further annoyance.  In this connection many suggestions  reached me to recommend to Ameri  cans.to wear distinctive emblems, perhaps in the form of small American  flags. They would then bo readily,recognized as. such and treated with  special consideration by our population. ��������� I must leave it to you whether  you will adopt this suggestion.���������With  great esteem,. Dr. Sturm, Oberburgermeistcr.  American Consulate, Chemnitz,  September 7.  Dear     Mr.     Oberburgernioister,���������1  have  the  honor  to  acknowledge  the  receipt of your letter of the 28th ult.  Your    kindly recommendation that  i all local Americans wear a distinctive  emblem,   perhaps  in  the  form   of  n,  small American flag, has..been seriously considered by myself, and by other  persons at Berlin, who have been consulted on the subject.  In view, however, of the fact that 1  have charge, with the consent of the  imperial government; of the interests  of the British subjects in this consular  district, it is"considered that the wear-'  ing-of such emblems would tend to at  i onco individualize all ..other persons  speaking English but not using these  emblems as British subjects, and to  expose these to the kind of hostilities  to which I have been subjected.���������With  great esteem, Frank Deedmeyer, American Consul.  The following is a translation of the  article in the local Allgemeine Zeitung  of August 28 referred to in the cor-  responder.ee:  "The local   representative   of ' the  United States has made complaint at  the Ratslelle that he and his wife, as  well as other Americans, are molested  , on the streets and in the street cars  ifor the reason that they converse in  i the English language.   There is in our  j city a considerable number of A'mer-  j icans, with whom we are at peace and  j in amity.   It should not bo necessary  ��������� to call attention to the fact that.the  representatives of the United   States  protection of  foreign  coun-  Effect of French Guns  French  New  tries to justify the request to be mindful of the reputation of our city as a  hospitable place and to abstain from  molesting any persons conversing in  tho English language, to avoid interference with' subjects of the friendly  American; nation.  "The foregoing notice was sent us  Trom the Ratshaupkanzlei. This'is to  , be regretted. On the other hand, we  i want to impress it upon foreigners to  be circumspect and careful in the use,  upon the -streets and in public places,  of the language of that nation which  we hate today the most."  The suggestion that the consul and  other Americans should wear distinguishing emblems was urged by prominent citizens at Ghemnitz.'who called  personally at the Consulate: but  though this would have secured perfect protection to Mr. and Mrs. Deed-  emery, they refused lo adopt it. In  Mr. Deedmeyer's opinion, it would  have let loose the mob of Chemnitz  upon the hundred or more defenceless  English subjects in and about the city,  are   Using' an' Effective  Gas Explosive  Several war correspondents whose  headquarters are in Paris have hinted  darkly that the French have no fear  of the terrible siege guns which Germany had prepared in secret, and  with which they reduced Namur in 24  hours instead of the three months it  was thought that city could hold out,  Paris, it was stated, would be defended by an arm more secret������and even  more terrible.^ A clue to this peril to  the German advance is given by the j  Paris correspondent of the Daily Telegraph.   He says:  There have been rumors before of  the terrible explosive which M. Tur-  pon, the iriventor.of melinite, had placr  ed at the service of France. It had  been tried once near Chalons, so it  was said, on a flock of sheep. A shell  charged with tho new explosive burst  above them. The smoke cleared  away. Of the four hundred sheep  four hundred, were dead. It has been  used now, I' learn, in the bitter earnest of war.  A friend of mine, a member of the  American branch of the -Red Cross,  returned to Paris from a visit to the  trenches around Meaux, whither he  had gone with his ambulance to bring  in the wounded. The strange horror  of what he had seen there was still in  his eyes.  "I saw," he said, "the German trenches as the'French guns left them.  They were filled with dead, but with  dead' in such posture as the world has  never seen since the Destroying Angel passed above the Philistine camp  in that avenging night of Scripture.  It was as though some blight from  Heaven had fallen upon them. There  they stood in line, rifles to shoulder,  a silent company of ghosts in the grey  light of dawn.   1 approached them.  "There was no horror in their faces,  no agony of surprise even. Only over  them was a film of fine greyish powder. You would have said that they  had travelled a long and dusty road.  I have seen men before who had died  of asphyxiation, but here was no sign  of the agonizing struggle for breath.  It .was as if a deep and sudden sleep  had overtaken them���������only their eyes  were open. They". mighty have been  there for all eternity thus, their rifles  at rest. I felt that if I touched them  they would crumble into dust. Never  have I seen .'anything more terrible  than these erect, silent figures in the  chill 'dawn."  That was my friend's story,  it without comment.

The above is an extract from a  notable article on the crisis by Lord  Roberts in the October 1-libbcrt Journal.  The sentence comes as a pendant  to his appeal for adequate numbers  of trained men for whom, as he says,  he and others have pleaded in times  of peace.  "We pleaded in vain," Lord Roberts writes, "and the war has come  upon us,- and with it the call for a  n.illion more soldiers.

"Not only is this a fight between  tiie systems of. rule of the people by  the people and rule of the masses by  a higher caste; it is also the first  opportunity given to the British democracy of showing that it possesses  the resolutions, the will power, to  fight and to win a great struggle for  its existence. -  "The working classes of the United Kingdom have only recently  gained their power; the great question at this crisis is: How will they  use it?  "In the titanic struggle against Ihe  French republic and against Napoleon our soldiers fought under the  cold shade of the aristocracy, and,  though great mistakes- wore made,  yet 'through the whole of that long-  drawn-out struggle., the'will to conquer never failed.  , "I appeal, therefore, to tiie working men of this country to show  themselves worthy of the powtr  which  they hold;   and I,  who    have  so often had the privilege, of addressing mass meetings of the working  classes in our great centres of population, make this appeal-, with every  confidence in the result.  "But I would also ask my fellow-  countrymen to accept certain warnings as to what they should not do  at this crisis.  "I would ask them not to be led  away by those who say that the end  of this great struggle is to bo the  end of war, and that it is bound to  lead, to a great reduction of armaments. There is nothing in the history of the world to justify any such  conclusion.  "Let us not under-estimate the  power of the great nation of sixty-,  six'million German people, who have  entered upon this war in the iirrn belief that they are bound to win. 1  cannot help thinking that the great  task of subduing that nation will  begin when we, .with our French,  Russian, and Belgian allies, have  driven the German armies into tho  heart of their own territory.  "The German recruiting statistics  for 1912 show that, after taking 300,-  000 men,for the army and navy, the  Germans, had nearly a million men  between the ages of twenty 'and  twenty-two who ���������were left untouched  and remained in reserve.  "It has, indeed, been stated that  since the war began over a million  fresh men have been enrolled for  military service in Germany.  "May I give a word of caution to  my countrymen against the unsportsmanlike practice of abusing one's en-  e-uies? Let us avoid what Mr. Kip-  ling, during the Boer war, described  as. 'killing Kruger with your mouth.'  Let us rather devote all our energies  to defeating our foemen by the superior fighting of adequate numbers  of British soldiers in the open field.  "When we Tead charges aga'inst  the German troops, let us remember  that gross charges, absolutely untrue, were brought against our own  brave soldiers fighting in South Africa. But whether the charges are  true or not, let us keep our own  hands clean, and let us light against  the Germans in such a way as to  earn their liking as well as their,respect."

The "dry canteen" is  practically a grocer's shop, set up  close lo the first barbed-wire fence,  through which the prisoners make  their purchases. No newspapers or  intoxicants are allowed, but tobacco,  cigarettes and cigars are bought freely-  The prisoners are allowed 1 1-2  pounds of bread a day, while Tommy  Atkins has to be content with one  pound.

This is  only  the beginning.  "It is our way, as well as that di'i  America, to begin to raise our arms j  after the war breaks out, and to go on j  raising them until our ultimate ends j  are achieved.

Direct Result of the   War  Artificial Flower and Fea'dier Factories Busy  1 The removal of the competition v. f  cheap German artificial flowers and  feathers, as a result of the war, is  stimulating activity in the artificial  flower and feather factories of Canada. The imports of artificial flowers and feathers from Germany to  Canada during the last fiscal year  amounted to -$177,171. The Canadian  artificial flower and ;feather, industry  will have to make up much of the deficiency caused by the withdrawal of  these imports.  Both the Dominion Ostrich Feather  Company, Limited, and the Empire  Flower and Fancy Feather Company,  Limited���������allied concerns, with factories in Toronto���������have experienced  greatly increased activity since the  war began. Under normal conditions  these two factories have about 200  employees. Since tho breaking out of  hostilities the number of employees  has been increased to 240, and it has  been necessary to have many of the  employees work overtime several  nights a week, in order to cope with  the increased business that is being  offered..  "This increased activity is a direct  result of the war," said Mr. C. E.  Lanskall, president and managing director of the Dominion Ostrich Feather Company, Limited. "The war has  cut off imports of all the cheap German flowers, and this deficiency has  created a demand for better goodf,  such as can be turned out profitably  by domestic manufacturers. We have  ample supplies of all Kinds of raw  materials on hand, and, with the cooperation ot our friends and customers, wo hope and expect to be able to  keep all our hands busy during the  coming fall and winter."  Earl Grey, former govprnor-goncrai  of Canada, in a:> :;.h!rt-;:s: before the  proposed Institute of Industry and  Coiiimori'e, commented on the half  million Canadians of German des-cmit,  "These Genuan;'," said Earl Grey,  "love the conditions which they find  in Canada as much as they hate the  conditions which they leave behind,  and if,we can obtain a larger influx  of such Germans into our Dominions  we shall have a combination of German culture under free institutions  founded not upon might, but upon  right."  Wants Half Million Warm Mittens!  The Grand Duke Michael Mikhaelo-j  vidi, of Russian, who, with his wife, I  tho Countess Torby, has long made'  his home in England, appeals to the  public to assist i.im in sending half a,  million  pairs  of  woollen   glo   mittens to the British soldier  field.

The fact is, he had been  sent by his general, Sir Henry Clinton, to confer at Went Point on the  Hudson, with that arch-traitor, General Arnold.  He obeyed orders and went, taking  every precaution of .secrecy and disguise to escape the notice of the enemy. In fact, he was within sight  of the English lines on his return  when he was taken, and after a long  court-martial he was condemned and  shot. But the traitor Arnold, by  Andre's self-sacrifice, escaped the  punishment he had so richly deserved.  The body of tho gallant and talented young soldier was taken to England, Inferred in the Abbey, and over  his grave the British governmMif  erected a monument.  t /  iraBRiBBBnRE \ .VwK'.c* ������������������*<-.  aaj-Jm. ������*.vt.Ai 0.<ti������i������iui  I';"'  THE   SUN,    GRAND   FORKS,   B.
