It was decided  to send the" quilts that weie  quilted some time ago to the  hospital at Kitamaat, and some  good warm clothing i.s being  sent lo Carnaby, B. C., to the  Indians.  The dinner that was given at  Olalla on November 12th in aid  of the Belgians wis well attended and was certainly a  credit, to Mrs. Love, the teacher,  and Mesdames Knowles, Wcil-  lace, Lelevere and Barcello, who  assisted Mrs Love. The sum  of $-10 was realized.  Mr. and Mrs. B. C. Williams  of Okanagan, Wash., arrived  here last week and will resido  here for the wintot. 'Mr. Williams has taken over the.barber  shop, and if he finds it satisfactory they will become permanent residents. Mr. Williams is  a graduate of a Seattle barber  college; he is also a musician.

Mr. Price has been suffering for  some time  from   dropsy, but of  late   had  been  improving and  his death came as a great shock  to his many friends. The funeral  was held Wednesday afternoon.  iCOn the evening  of  Saturday,  December 2nd, a concert will be  given by the   Peat  Concert Co.  under the auspices of St. John'--;  Ladies'  Guild. , The  Peat Concert Co. is made up" of returned  soldiers  who   are  located  in or  near Edmonton,  Alta., and the  principal    item"  on   their   program will be a, lecture by Lieut.  H. 11. 1'eat, who* went to France  -with   the first contingent   and  took   part in   many of the lirst  fierce struggles near Ypres. Besides  this  lecture the program  will be made up of  other items  by   the' members  of the party.  Coining on the Mime day as the  annual sale of St.  John's Guild,  a late tea will'be served after the  sale ot work and peop*e coming  in from a distance  may  in this  way stay over for  the. concert  in the evening.    The Peat company  give  one  quarter of the  proceeds to the- local Red Cross  Society.    Problems for the President.  Some time ago President Wilson in the course of a speech  said he wished -he knew who  was responsible for the "war.  what he proposed  to do  with  NICKEL PLATE SOCIAL CIRCLE  Correspondence from Above the Clouds  School Concert Was a Great  Success.  The  most/ sociable  event  of  the season was  enjoyed  at.the  I  TOWN AND DISTRICT I  the knowledge if ho   had it, he  did  not   think  it necessary   to  say.    We are, of course, bound  to believe that he is as ignorant  as he professed  to be, aud that  he honestly believes it possible  that  a    nation   armed, to   the  teeth   was  really   set  upon by  unprepai-ed neighbors: but there  are some   things  of   which  he  cannot   plead   ignorance.      He  cannot plead   that  he   does not  know who violated the integrity  of Belgium and spread destruction throughout  the  land.    lie  cannot  plead   that  ho does not  know "who  sank  the Lusitania  and sent more than a hundred  American citizens to their death.  He cannot plead   ignorance of  other simiiui outrages,  fie can  not   allege   that   he   does   not  know who attempted a virtual  submarine    blockade    of   New  York,    He  cannot allege   that  de does not  know  who  it was  who   treated   the United States  flag with contempt off the coast  of Spain.    He has nothing to do  with the cause  of the war, but  he hiis problems  enough  without it.    His latest arises out of  the    deportation    of    Belgians  from their own   country, an act  iu   direct  contra*, ontiou  of all  international law.    By this protest he has  entered   the. European conflict aud taken a course  which may compel   the  United  States' to   engage in hostilities.  It    seems    somewhat    strange  that the president is more,eager  to  assert   tho  rights   of   other  people than those  of   his  own,  but this is a. matter  for his decision   wholly.     He   has   done  right in   entering  his -protest,  although    not   as   yet . a   very  formal   one. in   the  caso of the  Belgians, and it is between him  and the  people   of  the   United  States how he   shall  safeguard  them or what he shall consider  due to the   flag   to   which  they  look  for protection.    In saying  these things wc   have no desire  to   place   the   president   in   an  unfavorable light.    ...    But  he has now stepped close to the  side of   the   ring  of  European  conflict and   has   taken   a posi-  Niclcel Plate, boarding house on  Friday evening in aid of the  Belgian Children Relief Fund,  by which $3-1 were contributed  to the cause. The concert,  which started promptly at 8  o'clock under the able management of the popular school  teacher, Miss N. Dill, was certainly worthy of all the praise  which that young lady received,  thei children having been drilled  up to the minute.  ��������� They started the program  with God Save tlie King, which  was-joinod in by all; then followed the flag drill,,each child  carrying a different flag, representing the allied forces, accompanied by Mr. Stevens, the  pianist.  Then came Master. Wlilie  Pearce with a recitation' "Empire First," which received full  applause.  Wesley Messenger recited  ���������'Chock Full of Summer" well.  Duet by Lillian Sampson and  Esther Johnson, "I wanta Nice  Big'Dolly," was  pleasing to all.  Percy Ilambly's recitation, "In  the School Report," was a great  suceess.

In conclusion the pupils uniteel,  in "School in Mother Goose  Land."

Sampson presided  and Mr. George Stevens was  accompanist.  The house was then turned  over to the well-known floor  manager, Mr. Gozon, and all  joined in dancing which lasted  until 1 a. in. After a vote of  thanks to Miss N. Dill and all  who took part in the evening's  amusements, the Home, Sweet  Home waltz was announced.  Refreshments were provided  by the ladies.

British Sailors Are  Ever the Same in Valor  The British Spirit  of  3-Iave    Still   the    Same    Quality  Courage as in the Time  of Drake  The prestige of  the fleet  and  the  snation    which    it    represents    never  stood    higher.      When    Drake    was  about  to  meet  the   Spanish  Armada  he --wrote,   to  Queen    Elizabeth:  "I  "have not in my lifetime known better  -men and    possessed     with gallanter  minds than your Majesty's people arc  for the    most    part which    arc here  ���������gathered together, voluntarily to put  their hands and hearts to the finishing  of  this  great piece  of work" ���������  -men   "who 'for  the   defence   of  your  Majesty,    our    religion,    and    native  country,  have  resolutely vowed    the  hazard of their lives."    After an interval of nearly three and a half centuries,     the Commander-in-Chief    of  the  Grand  Fleet  writes  in  the same  sense:  "I  cannot  adequately _ express  the pride with which the spirit of the  Fleet fills mc."      Sir John Jcllicoc's  praise,  as he explains,  applies  to all  ranks���������those who handled  the ships,  fought  llie guns,  discharged  the  torpedoes, and did the hundred and one  duties    in a man-of-war    action, not  omitting those who worked with zeal  and devolion in the engine-rooms bc-  .low.    In the hour of supreme trial the  British Fleet was not found wauling,  but won a Victory which only narrowly fell short of fulfilling the Nclson-  san maxim���������Not victory, but annihilation���������and    may,    in spile    of    that,  prove" the decisive event of the naval  war.���������London Telegraph.  /  A Slow,  Silent, But Relentless Process That Must Crush the  Enemy  Sadly, grimly, the British arc going now about their'work. There is  no hymn of hale in their resources;  tliey have no ��������� "Marseillaise"; theirs  '.will be a slow, -silent but relentless  action. What you have to feel and  sec is millions of.men who arc at last  awake to the fact that all that lhe  means lo them, nationally, morally,  spiritually, has been threatened. After the tradition of his race and the  fashion of his nation the Englishman,  millions of him, has now gone out to  kill and be killed until the work that  is to be done is done. Once that  spirit was clear in England, then  those of us who believe that all that  America as well as all that democracy held best in the world was at  stake in this war could afford to roll  up the war maps and put aside the  battle reports. The incidental changes would mean nothing, and they  will mean nothing. "They come so  slowly," the Frenchman .told you of  his allies six months ago, but in saying this.he added out of his race consciousness of half a' thousand years  of Anglo-French conflict, "but-'when  they do come they will never stop."  ���������New York Tribune.  has been in The Pas recently, de  clarcs that given "a fair show in labor and rail supplies, the Hudson's  Bay road will positively be in the bay  port one year hence." There has  been some scarcity of labor, according to reports, and also some difficulty in getting steel rails. The steel  laid recently has been gathered fronr  sidings not required at present. At  mile 185 there is, an historic spot  where there is a portage known, as  Portage avenue. .

Catarrh  More Extensive   Plans Are' Needed  in Great Britain  Canada is preparing plans for vocational, industrial and agricultural  training of soldiers incapacitated by  wounds or illness, and the British  War Office has established a number  of so-called Command Depots for the  re-education of disabled men who  may be fitted again for soldiering-.-  The system was introduced by Major R. Tait .Mackenzie, a Canadian Uy  birth, but professor of physical training at the University of Pennsjdvan-  ia, who is now in the Royal Army  Medical Corps.  It is now being urged upon the  British Army Council that somewhat  similar training centres should  forthwith be established for men incapable of further soldiering, and  discharged, owing to the loss of  limbs or sight, or otherwise.  James Robertson, who has just returned from France, where lie has  been carefully investigating the  French methods for the rc-cducalion  of disabled soldiers, is now pursuing  similar inquiries in London with a  view to an immediate report to the  Canadian authorities.  The London Times strongly urges  that far more extensive use be made  of,the period of convalescence to  teach disabled soldiers useful civil  employment, saying military discipline should be maintained until educational treatment has accomplished  all that is possible in restoring earning capacity.

Britain Has Accomplished Something  in the  War, Despite Her  Plodding Ways  - There is one of thc New York papers which can seldom refer to the  war without speaking of "British  failure," "British blunder," or "British delay." This has moved a correspondent to write in protest to another paper, the New York Times,  adding: "Thc saddest part of all this  is that the thick-headed British don't  seem to realize that they arc falling  down on the job. They just go plodding along, controlling the seas, furnishing an army of four or five million or so, lending their hard-battling  partners a few hundred million now  and then, starting up five or six thousand factories so that they and their  Allies shall have plenty of cannon and  shells, and seizing a mere dclaii of a  million square miles of German colonics���������:a!l thc while keeping the  wheels of commerce moving so that  our dear old United States can build  up its foreign trade to the extent of  several millions by virtue" of British  shipping. Certainly a' parlous state  of affairs." Yes, isn't it awful? And  then, again, the British navy lias  gone on trapping and destroying  German submarines till now one  hardly dares put its nose out of harbor, never realizing that'their work  was quite superfluous because President'' Wilson was protecting thc  rights of neutrals and non-combatants with notes from Washington,  ���������Montreal Plerald.  Its Virtue Cannot Be Described. ���������  No one can explain thc subtle power  that Dr. Thomas' Eclcctric Oil pos-,  scsscs. Thc originator was himself  surprised by the wonderful qualities  that his compound possessed. That  he was the benefactor of humanity is  shown by the myriads that risa in  praise of this wonderful Oil. So familiar is everyone with it that it is  prized as a household medicine every  where.  high level. It is to be note'd that  since the inceptive of thc advance thc  situation has grown steadily more  bullish. _ This is a development out of  the ordinary, as it is generally being  discovered after the agitation has  subsided and the early reports have  to be compared with thc actual outcome that thc scare exaggerated conditions. No one can say that that is  the case this season, for it- can' be  said that the run of news which, affected crop production is still favorable to high prices. Whatever other  influences have entered'into the. trade  calculations arc influences that are  based-on the possibility of the world's  supply of bread stuffs being augmented by the Russian surplus through  successful military operations of the  Entente Powers. ,  The foundation of the present bull  market was laid, of course, in the  heavy winter loss in the soft wheat  stales. At that time, thc liberality of  thc world's carry over from the generous 1915 harvest was a drag on any  permanent-market response. It was  the time when the,statistical position  of-the wheat hung heaviest on the  market. -Importers had thc utmost  confidence of obtaining'adequate.supr  plies and felt that they,had the" real  advantage- in the market.  It was ,the great heat v/ave of July  and its heavy toll of the spring wheat  crop that gave the real impetus to  the bull market. The winter wheat  harvest was moderate, and on thc lop  of that came a most unfavorable  Northwest harvest. From that time  on, thc developments have been towards a reduction of- the world's  avheat production. The yield in thc  United States allows only a small reserve above the country's needs, and  a surplus available for the export,  even with thc carry over of last season, is small when the conditions  governing the international market  are taken into account. The latest  reports from Canada indicate a decided shrinkage from expectations,  and the news from the other surplus  countries do not suggest at-this writing more than ordinary yields.  It is not expected that importing  countries will increase their production under the. abnormal conditions  that prevail.. In fact, thc reports are  unfavorable. The requirements from  exporters will be large this season,,  and exporting countries in the aggregate have far less to give than last  year. Whether prices have fully discounted' this extraordinary" situation  is a matter, of debate between the  bulls and thc bears. ��������� Thc situation  has not been exaggerated.

Popularity of Autos  The report of the U.S. Department  of Agriculture shows that, there were  2,245,664 motor cars in the United  States on December 31, 1915, as  against 48,000 in 1906. While these  figures may be somewhat exaggerated, when compared^ with a compilation of license statistics of the various  states, they arc near enough to give  a vivid idea of the growth of the motor industry. The total gross motor  vehicle registration and license revenues are given as $18,245,713, of  which practically 90 per cent, is available for' road improvement, so that  it will be apprccrated what a benefit  to the entire country the automobile  has beep, and is.  The increased use of automobiles  by thc agricultural community in  Canada during thc past two years is  one of the wonders of the trade.

Extraordinary developments in  aviation _ under war pressure were  shown in a performance given recently by a military airman in the  neighborhood of London for funds  for war hospitals. As the story goes,  Lieutenant Robinson, V.C., looped  thc loop three times in his joy after  destroying the Zeppelin L-21.  The performer in question began  his stunt high in the air, and made  his big biplane do some wonderful  bird-like evolutions. It was like figure skating, if you can imagine a skater turning^ somersaults. By way of  varying his intricate patterns, he  dived, turned over, and shot up again.  He looped the loop twenty-three  times, getting lower each time, until  he was too near thc upturned    faces       ���������_    for nervous watchers. It was a dance imporTancVlf7om ������da"y"tod"aj������  in the air as qurck and sure as the  sportive flight of a swallow at evening.  The flight of aeroplanes over London, which was once illegal, owing  to fear of possible descent upon some  thickly populated quarter, nowadays  is no uncommon incident, and in certain districts not far from thc metropolis swarms of aeroplanes of  various types can be'seen in the air  at,any time, making speed and performing evolutions thought impossible a couple of years agor-  Experts declare that when peace  comes the application of aeroplanes  to ordinary purposes of life will bring  many surprises. ���������  New Wharves for Vancouver  C.P.R. Making an Expenditure of a  ��������� Million and a Half to Relieve  Congestion  The Canadian Pacific-has plans for  wharves at Vancouver which will  cost $1,500,000. These plans will  dove-tail into those which the- city  contemplates to carry out at the port.  The latter is growing in value and  bigness all the time. There is great  complaint from shippers of congestion, for Vancouver is becoming a  great port. The city is going to spend  $5,000,000 on wharf extension in the  immediate future, and the railway  company, on its' o*vn account, has  plans for a further extension of the  wharves which it will use for its own  business.

Schools Where Soldiers Are Trained  in Actual Warfare, Near the  Firing Line  Lord Northcliffc, who recently  paid a visit to "the front," tells in 'the  London Times how thc British Tommies, before they arc called upon to  undergo the experiences of actual  warfare in the trenches, rehearse real  war movements behind the trenches.  Scattered among thc army behind  the army arc schools where war is  taught by officers who have studied  the art at the front. Here in vast  camps thc spectator ''might easily  imagine that he was at the front itself. Here the pupils fresh from  Knghuid arc drilled in every form of  fighting. _  There is something uncanny in thc  approach of a company lo a communication trench, in its vanishing  under the carlli, and its reappearance  sonic hundreds of yards away, where  clambering "over the top," lo use lhe  most poignant expression of thc war,  the soldier pupils dash forward in a  vociferous bayonet charge. At these  great rcinforcciucnl camps arc gas  mask attacks, where pupils arc passed through underground chambers,  filled with real gas, that they may become familiarized with one of the  worst curses of warfare, Thc gas itself is a subtle and at Hist not a vcry  fearsome enemy, but the victim is  apt to be overcome before he is  aware of it.  ���������And at these miniature battlefields,  all of them larger than the field of  Waterloo, arc demonstration lecturers who teach bombing, first with  toy bombs that explode harmlessly  with'a slight puff, and then with   thc  Circular Urges Troops Not to Eat for  the  Sake of Eating  The Paris Journal says thc following is extracted from a circular intended for distribution among thc  German tro"ops and found in the possession of a captain taken prisoner  on 'the Somme:  '_ "England and France arc making  implacable efforts to stop our rcvic-  tualling from overseas countries and  to starve us out.

The  split-log drag,  fthat  boon  for  dirt  roads,  is  popular  Un Missouri,    but not    so popular irr  some districts as it should be.      An  J editor with a mind of his own work-  fed out a scheme for stimulating its  ���������tuse.    He induced the storekeepers in  ' his   town  to  join  in  planning  a  day  ^when prizes would be given for thc  I'firsl road-drag to be driven into town,  There is immense faith, but great  latitude of deportment.

England abounds  in religious philanthropy, but there  is universal faith, and the chief  building- in every village is the  church. In England there arc the  forms of democracy; in Russia the  spirit.  Mr. Bcgbic would have England  more Russian and Russia more English. It seems a good idea. If the  suppression of vodka is maintained  in Russia conduct will take a great  step forward, but the Russians will  get rich faster, and be more exposed  than heretofore lo the various drawbacks of large means, which have  not failed of bad effects on English  character.

Crater fighting is taught'with  an actual reproduction of a crater, by  a lusty sergeant who has seen much  of thc actual thing, and tells the men  what to do with their bombs and with  Germans. Such schools arc known  to exist throughout Germany, but no  Prussian, thoroughness can belter  these British war-training schools in  France. For those who are not so  quick in intelligence as others there  is a revival of the old awkward squad  who arc taught slowly and patiently  with remarkable results.  In the centre of one of these  schools there arrived, while I was on  thc scene, a great number of German prisoners on their way to thc  base. I do not know how many  young soldiers just landed from  England were being trained that day.  Certainly many, many thousands,  and I do not wonder that thc prisoners were amazed at the spectacle before them. One of them frankly  confessed in excellent English that  his comrades were under the impression that we had no men left.  thc drag driven thc longest distance, i with the good^ the crooked with  thc  the most unique drag, the best decorated drag, and thc drag hauled by the  most unusual  team.  Merchants    were    quick to see the  point.      Every drag- driven to town  | would do that much towards improving thc dirt roads over which it passed.   The services of thc farmers were  worth a great deal  more  than     thc  prizes the merchants offered,   but the  farmers jumped at thc chance to win  .. thc attractive awards. Each man with  f a   drag  had  a  chance   to   win   more  than fifty dollars'  worth  of goods if  luck was  on his  side, and the  result  was that scores of farmers drove to  town on Road-Drag Day.  >;.     It's easy to talk about thc tangible  % commercial results of this'kind of co-operation between editor and citizens  " but  there    are  other,  better  results,  much less  tangible but a great deal  more valuable to a community.   Thus  an editor in a Minnesota town made  much of a' "Your-Day-to-Gain" move-  straight, the English' seem to have  the best claim to be rated thc greatest people now on earth. They combine more power with more character, more vigor with more wise compunctions, than any other people.  But the Russians arc the rising  marvel. For goodness, for badness;  for talent, for vigor; for number, for  endurance, for undeveloped capacity  they arc unmatched ��������� a vast aggregation of the raw material of human  greatness. And they are keeping  better company now than they have  ever kept. They arc in with the  great democratic countries of Europe  in a struggle that could hardly be  won without' them. - It is a'wonder-  Bra Very of a French Officer  Audacity of One Man Brings in 114  German Prisoners  The colonel of a regiment fighting  against the enemy in thc vicinity of  Verdun did not see how he could  take possession of ,a certain fort by  the engineers or artillery. A captain  offered to seize it by infantry, and,  giving him carte blanche orders to do  his best, thc Colonel allowed him to  go ahead.  Thc officer had managed to csccr-  tain the position of thc communication trench leading to the fortress.  Followed by a small body of men  consisting of a sub-lieutenant, a sergeant, a quartermaster, a corporal,  three cyclists, and a bugler, he set  off at two o'clock one afternoon, and-  penetrated alone into the fortification.  He saw nothing, all the Germans  being underground. Eventually a  number of men'appeared, and then  another body of men with a corporal,  but thc officers continued to remain  underground.  The Germans gazed with stupefaction at the .'^Frenchman' isolated among them. Feeling that any hesitation was dangerous, the captain shot  down   with   his   revolver  thc  first   of  "People considering moving into  Canada from across the border," Mr.  Walker continues, "have been told  that they were in danger of conscription, and would be subject to enormous war taxes. In answer to this;  it may be said that the Government  has definitely promised that there  will be no conscription in Canada.  Furthermore, the subject of another  country cannot be conscripted, and  three years' residence' in Canada is  necessary before a man can become  a Canadian citizen. Even the most  pessimistic hope and expect that before the end of three years thc great  war will be ended.  "There is no special war tax in thc  West, nor is there likely to be any.  A war-tax to be effective would have  to be on lands. By the'constitution  of Canada, only provincial governments can impose taxes on land, and.  the. Federal government, which is financing Canada's participation in the  war,  cannot  interfere.  -"Between four and five hundred  settlers come into Canada from the  United States every week. They can  sell land in their own country* for  seventy-five dollars an acre and buy  quite as good in Canada for twenty  or. twenty-five dollars. Because of  this they are bringing with them a  considerable amount of stock, farm  implements and money. All Western  Canada has quantities of water and  the land is suitable for the raising of  all kinds of grain and for mixed farming. Last year thc crop was so enormous that the leneth of the harvest  season made it practically impossible  to do anv fall breaking.  "Tho immieratron now is practically all from the United States.

"Thc way our boys did their work  will never be forgotten in thc history  of the Welsh people," wrote a Welsh  soldier to his parents in Cardiff. Report's from thc front generally say  the Welshmen fought -with a dash  unequalled in Welsh history. The  Welsh soldier's story , is told in  Cardiff just like other Welsh soldiers'  stories arc told in other parts of  Wales.

The war, by virtue of thc Picardy  offensive, is creeping into almost  every British home. Thcie arc  empty chairs and pensions in many  of them. There arc German helmets and other relics in some.  Wounded Tommies home to recover  also are there. , But in all there are  the stories that will be told for generations: how Tom, Dick or Harry  fought in thc big offensive.  Viewing Battle Scenes  "A _ solemn panorama" is thc description given by a woman after  viewing the Somme films shown in  London. Whether it is desirable to  show actual battle scenes to the  home public, had been questioned,  but, as one visitor said, "What our  heroes can bear to suffer wc can bear-  to sec."  There is nothing in this display to  harrow thc feelings or distress those  who have lost beloved relatives in  the war. The devotion of the Empire's young manhood/, the majestic  offering of British labor, are realized  in every detail of the victorious advance.

The accounts of these lumbering monsters crawling awkwardly  but irresistibly over trenches and  shell craters, through barbed wire  entanglements and machine gun defences, pushing over walls and trees,  all the time impervious to  thc rattle  of bullets and the bursting of shrap 7  nel, call up a picture that transcends  take another democratic and'unmTli  in the German, defence, either, for the"'  Associated Press,  reports show,, tha't  thc^ Kaiser's men arc doing their best;,  which all the world now knows to bef"  a doughty best.

And, unlike some of the other new  engines of warfare, it is a strictly  legitimate device because it is used  for military purposes only.

Fire Prevention  In Schools  Early Attention of Teachers Required  to Safeguard Pupils  The protection of pupils from fire  and panic is the first duty of those  in charge of schools. Schools will  soon be rc-opening for the autumn  term ana the institution of fire drills  should be undertaken without delay.  The first day of school is not too  early for thisv purpose. Many scholars will be new to the school or, by  promotion, will be unaccustomed to  their surroundings, and in case of fire  or fire alarm disastrous results might  follow.  In an eastern-city, within ten  days after the opening of the last  school term, two fires occurred, for-  tunalcly during the absence of the  pupils. In these schools fire drill had  been undertaken at the inception of  thc term. The occurrence of fires so  early in the school term, however,  demonstrates thc necessity of giving  first attention to this form of security to pupils.  The principal and- teachers should  also familiarize themselves with the  school building, noting any dangerous conditions for. immediate atten-  lion.  Accumulations .of .papers, disused  furniture and school -supplies are  stored in basements and attics, and,  accenlualed by deposits of dust,  -reate serious fire danger from spontaneous combustion. Chimneys or  pipes passing through attics should  be carefully inspected for any cracks  ' pr defects from which sparks could  be emitted.'  The care of waste paper is important. Metal waste paper baskets  should be used and thc contents  burned as soon as the baskets are  full; under no circumstances should  they be allowed to accumulate. Thc  burning should be, done in a safe  place, away from frame outbuildings  or fences, and should be carried out  by either the teacher personally or  by  some reliable-senior pupil.  The heating apparatus, be it stove  or furnace, should be carefully examined and placed in fire-safe condition.  -Ashes should be kept in metal containers and should never be deposited near frame buildings or wooden  fences. Wood should not be placed  close lo the stove or furnace to dry.  .This is a very dangerous practice,  and has caused many fires.  -All doors leading from classrooms,  corridors and school buildings should  open outward and should never be  locked' during school hours.  -In. the larger schools where a jan-  -ilor is employed it should be a part  of his duty to make a daily inspection . of the school premises, from  basement* to attic. This should be  imperative and not simply a matter  of convenience.   '  Tlie    position   of    janitor  or  caretaker'of a. school is an important one.  'The'custody of valuable property and  thc" protection  of  many   lives  are   in  his   keeping.      Too    often    the  only  "qualification  for  this  position  is     the  low- salary  at  which   a  man   may  Le  ' secured.       The    position    should   be  made one  of ample salary  and a  reliable and qualified occupant employed;   strict     attention    to  duty  should  then be insisted upon.  There has been a material reduction in the number of school fires  during, the past few years. In 1913  there were 35 school fire losses, in  1914 there were 26, while in 1915  jhere were only 11.

There are evident signs that this revolution in public sentiment has b\;-  gun; that the German people are losing their faith both in the omniscience and omnipotence of the state.  This evidence is seen in such publications as "J'Accusc" and "Because I  Am a German"; in the growing boldness of the Socialistic protests  againsl thc conduct of the war; in  the growing demands in various  quarters for peace; in riots which  there is a good reason lo believe arc  more serious than as reported; in  the apparent readiness of the government to relinquish the conquest  of Belgium and allow its right to  exist; in thc apologelic defenses of  the government by high officials and  their appeals lo the people lo maintain their courage; and in the apparent abandonment by the war  party of its militaristic philosophy  as interpreted by such writers as  Bcrnhardi.  Thc Outlook is not looking to thvi  western front, the eastern front, or  the Balkans for the determination of  this war. It is looking to the growing change in German public opinion, the news of which is allowed to  sift through private letters and un-  censorcd telegraph reports. Two  weeks after the outbreak of the war  the Outlook said: "We believe with  Hegel lhat God has a plan and that  history is nothing but the working  i_ii: of his plan in human affairs. AntJ  we believe that the Austrian prime  minister and the German emperor  have made a fatal mistake in leaving  this, truth out of their reckoning in  their endeavor to destroy the great  democratic movement in Europe,"  That faith we repeat. The end of  this war will not come with the end  of militarism, nor before. And thc  end of-militarism will come when the  German people realize the fatal blun-  dcr'.of the war lords, the falsity of  their philosophy, and thc futile malice of their purpose. . It may come  only gradually as the wearing away  of the German forces convinces thc  German people that militarism has  failed; it may come suddenly with a  disaster to German arms so overwhelming that no explanation can  destroy its effect on the mind of the  German people. But it will come in  Germany when the ambitious hopes  of the leaders are destroyed and the  people awake to the truth.���������From the.  Outlook,; N.Y.  New York to London  Possible  That  Journey  May Yet  Be  Made  By  Land  Thc old project  of a tunnel under.  terances Compiled by Owen  Wisler  In Owen Wisler's ��������� "Pentecost of  Calamity" there is a fearful mosaic  of Prussianism built up sentence by  sentence from the utterances of Prussians, lhe Kaiser and his generals,  professors, editors and Nietzsche,  part of it said in cold blood before  the war and all of il a declaration of  failh since ratified by action! This  "composite statement of Prussianism," as Mr, Wisler called it. follows:  "We Hohenzollerns take our crown  from God alone. On me the Spirit  of God has descended. I regard my  whole . . . task as appointed by  heaven. Who opposes me I shall  crush to pieces. Nothing must be  settled in tins world without the intervention . . . of . . . the  German Emperor.

This small island in the  North Sea was taken from thc Danes  \>y thc British in 1807 and made a  jlepot for British merchandise; it remained for 83 years in the possession  of Great Britain and Ihcn was ced-  td to Germany in 1890, since which  1'imc it has been strongly fortified and  js now the a base for the German  .navy.  Heligoland, situated 28 miles  northwest of the moulh of the Elbe,  consists of a steep, rocky plateau  with a strip of firm, sand at its southeast foot. The laws are thc old Frisian code. North Frisian is the native tongue, but German is currently  spoken. The fishers arc Frisian, a  tall and muscular race of hardy seamen, simple and primitive in their  habits and holding land-labor in contempt. ' The merchant class consists  of immigrants from Hamburg and  other places on thc mainland, or their  descendants." As an advanced naval  base, it has been made great use of  by thc German navy during the prcsr  cnt war, especially as a haven of refuge when Bcatty's scouts have been  in pursuit. According to tradition,  Heligoland was once vastly larger,  great tracts of country having been  swallowed up by the sea between A.  D. 700 and the end of the 17th _ century; During the last 26 years denu-  dating    agencies have   been at work  which  have   reduced  the area  of  the  Asia,  Europe and  Africa,  island     by   one-fourth.

It is estimated that such  a tunnel would be thirty-five miles  long and would cost $50,000,000, says  the Kansas City "Star."

And who will assert that the time  will not come when through passage  may not be booked from New York  City, or from Kansas City, by way of  Canada and Alaska, across the narrow Behring Straits by bridge, which  has been declared to be wholly practicable, thence by rail to Vladivostok,  to Petrograd by the Siberian Railway, to Berlin, Paris and through the  Channel Tunnel to London?

Singleness of Purpose  The   Anglo-French   Unity  is  an   Inspiring Spectacle "  There is an aspect of thc Franco-  British offensive that one hears nothing about, and that is the complete  harmony of the armies of the Allies  in their field operations. Never before in history, we believe, have two  nations fought side by side in a great  war without friction, confusion, cross  purposes and heartburnings. There  have been mistakes and badly timed  movements in thc great campaign in  France, but nothing was said about  them except by critics at the rear,  who were more concerned about  claiming credit for France or for'  England, as the case might be,, than  in doing justice to thc commanders  and to the spirit of their men.  Ten years ago who would have believed that French and British soldiers would fight side by ,side like  brothers and frankly admire individual prowess without considering the  uniform? They do not understand  each other's speech, their temperaments are dissimilar, and long the  tradition persisted among the common people in England���������it had come  down from Agincourt and other glorious fields���������that a Frenchman was no  match for an Englishman. And what  is even mpre to"the point, who would  have believed that British commanders would cheerfully subordinate  themselves to French Generals and  execute the orders given with absolute -loyalty, indifferent to reputation  and fame, or at least conceal their  disappointment that the lion's share  of the glory of achievement would go  to men whose forefathers were defeated at Waterloo?  It was naturally the hope, and indeed, the. expectation of the German  General Staff that the Franco-British  war machine would not function  smoothly; that as the war proceeded  the British commanders, who at least  had distinguished themselves in little  wars, would not get on with General  Joffre, who had no" prestige as a  commander of large bodies of troops,  and that the private soldiers, of the  two armies would not fraternize and  fight unselfishly-and with equal gallantry for common cause.  There was never a greater misconception. Have men of one race ever  gone into battle with more singleness  of-purpose and -higher courage than  the soldiers of France and of the  British Empir.e? It has been an inspiring spectacle, and surely the  world would never have beheld it if  the traditional enemies did not believe their cause was just and lhat  the consequence of failure would be  disaster irreparable.���������From thc New  York Sun.

Colonel Stanton had previously seen a great deal of the British Boy Scouts, and during his two  years' stay in Canada has travelled  extensively with His Royal Highness  the Duke of Connaught both in Eastern and Western. Canada. Colonel  Stanton has seen military service in  the Dongola Expedition in 1886, and  in the Nile Expedition in 1897-98-99,  and was honored for distinguished  service in the battles ofAtbara and  Omdurman. During his service in  Egypt under Lord Kitchener he designed the well-known camel'postage  stamp of the Soudan.

When the Frenchman tells us that  they are young with the youth of a  vigorous nation hardly yet conscious  of its destiny, we see that it is so;  their splendid confidence in themselves and their origin, their eagerness and their buoyancy bubbling  over in all kinds of extra service to  their French hosts, their tunefulness  and recklessness of the chances of  war proclaim the assured role of. their  race in world history with more  authority than the psychological theories of the most Teutonic professors  could assume. They cultivate cleanliness without, and within, .and in war  they are "irreducibly tenacious."  Could there be any tribute higher  than this from France?

Artillery and Thunder  Thunder Has Never Been Heard at a  Greater Distance Than Fourteen Miles  During the great battle of Verdun  the roar of artillery was said to ' e  audible in Holland, over a hundred  miles away, and the guns of Flanders  have often been heard in Kent, England.

It is interesting and often comforting during: thunder to be able-to  ascertain the distance of the focus of  the storm, which as far as personal  danger is concerned is all that matters. ' This can be done by remembering that sound travels.at the. rate  of about 1,125 feet a second, whereas  a flash is seen almost simultaneously.  If, therefore, the interval between  the sight of the flash and the sound  of the thunder be one second, thc  distance of the flash is 1,125 feet; if  two seconds, 2,250 feet; if five seconds, about a mile; if ten seconds,  two miles; and if a minute, thirteen  miles���������a distance at which thunder is  very seldom heard.

The whole  scheme of thought, the whole moral  atmosphere which sanctions, condones, and rejoices in these things  is a standing menace to all right and  to all progress. The highest interests  of humanity imperiously require its  utter extirpation from the minds it  darkens ancT debases, lest its triumph  should contaminate the future of  mankind.���������From  the  London Times.

But what a grateful change it is I True, all women cannot afford-  nor would they all wear, the elusive confections which masquerade  under the name of negligee or nightgown; but they are favored by  fashionables, and if you choose to be frivolous in this direction, you  may have the added satisfaction of being right in the fashionable  swim.  The rose-printed chiffon is a real nightgown, tho it is more often  known as a slip-on, and is intended to be slipped over another nightgown, just to make it look more festive, or for wear under a coat neg- .  ligee. There is no attempt at trimming here, as the beauty of the material suffices.  The oriental has taken a strong hold upon boudoir garments.  You see a charming negligee of crepe de chine in flesh color, with  panels back and front of the most exquisite Chinese embroidery. This  boudoir gown is a feast of color, for, besides the wonderful mingling  of blue, gold, green and black in the embroidery, a band of blue  chiffon is hemstitched around the top of the negligee and the. arm-  holes. Tassels dangle from under the arms. They are in the colors of  the embroidery. A lace hem adds still further to the luxurious effect  of the whole negligee.  You may have chiffon underwear, too, if you choose. Of course,  you must lay a foundation of Italian silk, but on top you may wear an  undervest or chemise of vividly colored chiffon, trimmed simply with  hemstitched bands. The negligee which the model wearing such'a  chemise is slipping off is made of a bronze silk net, the flounces embroidered in white. The flounces on this negligee are so voluminous  that the garment is almost opaque.  For the woman who likes dainty things without any suggestion of  the bizarre comes a charming new negligee of crepe meteor in shell  pink. It is provided with a coat of a lovely new lace called margot,  which is a hexagon mesh embroidered with silky threads in a heavy  pattern. Angel sleeves add to the grace of this garment.  Another slip-on or. negligee, as you choose, is of chiffon in peacock green. An embroidered band of velvet adds to the brilliant color  scheme. A negligee like this woul,d be a fit excuse for the oroverbial  vanity of the seacock.

For a few moments the Iwo women stood silently looking at the picture, and the girl guessed thai for  sonic reason or other there was a  strong special interest about the original of thc portrait for the lady who  was considering it so attentively.  Suddenly Lady Moorhampton turned  to  her.  "It is very sad, and wc don't wish  to speak about il more than wc can  help. But you'd belter know, perhaps, in case you should slay here.  Wc have just heard vcry bad news  of my stepson. He has been away  from England for many years, and  now he has been drowned on his way  home."  "Drowned!" echoed Mabin quickly.  "Yes, isn't it dreadful?"  "And are you quite sure about it?"  asked    Alabin,   assuming .  a   tone   of  sympathy    which was,    however, by  , no   means  so  pronounced  as  that  in  which Lady. Moorhampton replied:  "I'm. afraid so. My brother heard  about it only yesterday, and brought  down the sad news to us. Of course  it has upset Lord Moorhampton  very much. But as for mc, I must  confess I never could forgive Cipriau  for treating his falhc? with so little  respect and kindness as he  did."  Mabin said nothing. Indeed she  was dumb from a variety of emotions, of which surprise and suspicion  were perhaps the most conspicuous.  That Lady Moorhampton should  have been trifling and amusing herself with such an air of frivolous en-  . joyment on thc vcry day after she  had heard news so terrible about her  stepson was one cause of astonishment, while the news of it was another.  Drowned! On his way home!

Its value ior  producing humus in the soil has been  emphasized so much that it should be  somewhat generally appreciated. It  has also been pointed out many times  that straw contains considerable pot  Labor on the Farm  Yearly Employment of Help Would  Be of Great Value to the  Farmers  Farm labor conditions received  careful attention in the agricultural  survey conducted on 100 farms in  each of four counties in Ontario- during thc summer of 1915 by the Commission  of   Conservation.  One of thc signal facts revealed  was thc small number of farmers employing male help by the year. In  Dundas 10 farmers, in Waterloo 9, in  Northumberland   7,   and   in   Carleton  ash. Under normal conditions potash '35, provide yearly employment;  or a  crs. For- instance, thc average yield  of spring wheat per acre is about r9  bushels, for oats, 35 bushels and for  barley 2S bushels. But many of the  best farmers regularly produce an  average of 25 to 30 bushels per -..ere  !of wheat, from 55 lo 85 bushels of  oats, and from 40 to 50 bushels of  barley. Several factors are respon-'  sible for these high average yields,  but one of the chief among them is  the careful    production  is thc least expensive of the elements  of fertility ordinarily purchased in  commercial form and is more abundant in most soils than nitrogen and  phosphorus. Thc fact that thc bulk  of our potash came from Germany  and that thc supply'from lhat source  has been cut oit has so greatly increased thc price that even thc small  amount which is available is too expensive for profitable use as fertilizer.  It costs more lo replace the supply  in the soil than it did a few year ago  when potash was cheap. It is, therefore, of greater importance that such  by-products as straw, cornstalks, etc.,  be more carefully conserved.  Thc man who has plenty of livestock to utilize his straw as feed and  bedding has always found it too valuable to burn. One reason that the  grain farmer has given for burning  slraw was that it could not be worked into thc soil so as not to injure  thc following crop, at least, not without    so much  time and    labor as  to  total of 61 out of the 400. Those m-  ploying help oy the month included  13 in Dundas, 10 in Waterloo, 6- in  Northumberland and 15 in Carleton,  while those, providing employment'by  the day only were 41 in Dundas, 26 in  Waterloo, 50 in Northumberland and  9 in Carleton.

It is too much to  expect that a floating labor market  can be, maintained to supply 'this  large demand at specific times.

They had solved it, however, by utilizing iheir employees and  plant in the raamrlacture of other  lines for which it was adaptable during thc off seasons in thc 'clothing  trade.  So with the farmer. He has at his  command a wide range' of production. By so operating his farm, he  can increase . his work at seasons  when otherwise there would be no  employment for his help. Competent  help is as economical on the larm as  in thc factory; training help is an expensive undertaking. By providing  continuous employment, the farmer  not only overcomes this constant  training of new men, but obtains the  more valuable assistance ot men fa-  mihar with his farm conditions.

So it happens that during September  those chiefly interested in the marketing of the crop collect and compile statistics to show how the details compare with those of the preceding twelve months.  -Grain figures arc of interest wider  than most. To the multitude concerned in the movement of grain  from the farmers' siding to the consumer, they surpass in interest the  latest fiction. To the business section  they, speak of 'obligations met and  credits renewed; lo manufacturers,  as foreshadowing-a revival of ordering and a busy season for thc industries; to the farmer and his people  they lake tangible form in new articles of comfort about the home; but  lo the men on the rail-ways .they provoke reminiscences of days, and  nights on lhe road, and continuous  striving to keep the ordinary traffic  of the country in motion while thc  wheat was moving lo the sea.  During the twelve months ended  August 31st, the Canadian Northern  Railway handled over its lines between Lake Superior and the Rocky  Mountains, 109,122 cars of grain oro-  duced along its rails, and inspected  by the Government, at Winnipeg, Calgary and other points in the West.

Life in a Submarine  Commander of German Sub Tells oE  Inconveniences  of' Under-    .  'Sea Life  . A graphic piclure of what life in  a submarine is really like is provided  by Lieut-Commander Clauz Hansen,  of the German submarine U-16. This  lieutenant slates that overpowering  sleepiness and sea-sickness ' arc thc  first things which attack new men on  the German submarine's.  "When,",he continued, "the weather or the proximily of the. enemy  makes it necessary lo remain down  long, so that the air becomes particularly bad, every man except those  actually on duty is ordered lo .lie  down and to remain absolutely quiet,  making no unnecessary 'movement,  as movement causes the lungs to use  more oxygen, and oxygen must be  saved just as the famishing man in  the desert tries lo make the last drop  of water go farthest.  "As there can be no fire, because  fire burns oxygen and , the electric  power from the accumulators is too  precious to be wasted for cooking,  we have to dine cold when cruising."

There is not a disturbed condition of life that may not affect digestion. But few causes of the trouble  are so common as thin, weak blood.  It'affects directly and at once the process of nutrition. Not only is the action of the gastric and 'intestinal  glands diminished, but the muscular  action of the stomach is weakened.  Nothing will more promptly resLore  digestive efficiency than good, red  blood. Without it thc normal activity  of the stomach is impossible.  Thin, pale people who complain of  indigestion must.improve the condition of their blood to find relief. The  most active blood builder in such  cases is Dr.. Williams Pink Pills. They  make the rich, red blood which quickly restores the digestive organs to  their proper activity, and thc dyspeptic who has haled the sight and smell  of food now looks forward to meal  time with pleasure.' As proving the  value of Dr. Williams Pink Pills in  curing indigestion, Miss Edith M.  Smith, R. R. No. 4, Perth, Ont, says:  "I can honestly say I owe my present good health to Dr. Williams Pink  Pills. My stomach was terribly weak  and I suffered from indigestion and  sick headache, and was always very  nervous. I was troubled this way for  nearly three years, and in that'time  took a ...great deal of doctors* medicine, which,* however, did not help  mc. I could not eat anything without experiencing the most agonizing  pain. My sick headaches were most  violent and I could not rest night or  day. I was asked one day by a friend  to try Dr.- Williams Pink Pills, and  consented tou,do so. After taking Ihcm  some time I found they were helping  mc, and I continued to take them  steadily for several months, until , I  found that I was completely cured.  While' taking the pills, I gained both  in strength and weight, and I,feel it  impossible to praise Dr. Williams  Pink Pills loo highly."  You can procure these pills through  any dealer in medicine or by mail,  post paid, at 50 cents a box, or six  boxes for $2.50, from The Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

Calls for Vengeance  v  Maori Member of New Zealand Parliament Makes Striking Speech  A. striking speech was made at the  closing session of the House of Representatives of the Dominion Parliament at Wellington, N.Z.', by Dr.  Pomare, a .member of the Cabinet  and a Maori. A resolution was before thc House expressing the Parliament's inflexible determination tos  "continue the war to a successful1  end," when Dr. Pomare arose and  said:  "Today Aegean breezes stir the  grasses over the graves of mine and  yours, and wherever a Maori hears  the moan of the wind, whenever he  hears the boom of guns it reminds  him lhat away beyond the seas utu  (revenge) has got to be brought  about for the dead. For that reason  the Maori's determination to end the  war victoriously is just as inflexible  as that of the pakeha (white man).  One result of the war will be the cohesion of thc Empire and the understanding between the different races  under the British flag. The spirit of  Rewi and of other big fighters lives  in the Maori today, and he cries hi  the same spirit of defiance, 'Ake, akc,  akel' (for ever and for ever)."  In calling for vengeance for the  Maori dead Dr. Pomare had particular reference to the handful of soldiers of his race who, with a few  white New Zcalanders, reached, after  desperate fighting, and held for ��������� a  few minutes during . the Suvla Bay  operations, a position - from which  they, could see the central Dardanelles. This, it is said, was the utmost point reached by any of the  allied troops in the Gallipoli campaign.  9t Persecute  Bowels ������������������ -'  Cut out cathartics and purgatives,  brutal���������han>h���������unnecessary.

Warship  Has Serious Defects  16-Inch Guns of Super-Dreadnought  ' Cannot Be Fired Simultaneously  The huge 16-inch guns of the new  super-dreadnought Pennsylvania cannot be fired simultaneously. This  fact was revealed during thc _ recent  target practice indulged in during thc  government acceptance tests.  The Pennsylvania, with her sister  ship Arizona���������just completed in the  Brooklyn Navy Yard���������are thc first  Dreadnoughts to have all their big  guns installed three to a turret The  super-dreadnoughts Oklahoma and  Nevada have two' of their turrets  containing three guns, but the remaining two turrets only con Lain two  guns each.  The trouble discovered on thc  Pennsylvania also exists in the three-  inch gun turrets, it is learned. When  the three guns in thc turrets arc fired  simultaneously thc middle gun becomes deflected and cannot bc controlled.  Learned  A Clever Bog  a Trick That Worked Both  Ways  There was an old lady who rented  a furnished villa for the summer,  and with the villa also went a large  dog. In tire sitting-room of the villa  Uicre was a very comfortable arm  chair. The old lady liked the chair  better than any other in the house.  But alasl she nearly always found  thc chair occupied by the large dog.  Being afraid of the dog, she never  dared bid it harshly to get out of the  chair, as she feared that it might bite  her; but instead she would go to the  window and  call  "Cats!"  Then thc dog would rush to the  window and bark," and the old lady  would slip into the vacant chair  quietly.  One day the dog entered the room |  and found the old lady in possession  of the chair.   He strolled.over to the;  window   and, looking out,   appeared  very much excited and set up a tremendous barking.  ' The old lady rose and hastened to  the window to see what was the  matter. Then the dog.quietly climbed into the chair.���������Chicago Herald.  A ������afe,' reliable rejTMfattafl-  vtidicitie. Bold ,in i thxso dcH .  Krees-ol strength.'

England and the  colonics���������for both Canadians^ and  Australians are conspicuous in thc  lists���������will read with pride thc detailed accounts that arc given of thc  deeds which have been singled out  for honor. There could be no belter  proof that thc spirit of the race is  as high as it has ever been, and that  individual bravery has risen rather  than diminished in thc long years of  comparative peace. Lists such as  these arc thc best answer to those  who assumed the degeneracy of the}  race before war broke out. As wc  read of the acts which have been singled out for mention, we have the  feeling that thc tests applied to heroism have never before been so  strict, and that a man must do something very exceptional indeed before  his claims to distinction are rccogniz-  cd.���������Westminster Gazette.  Public Economy ���������  Acting on instructions of the joint  committee on the printing of Parliament, thc chief of distribution of the  publications printed by thc Government in the local bureau has issued  notices to the newspapers calling attention to the size of the complimentary mailing list and requesting the  journals lo make a selection from trie  list of publications sent them monthly. Those Ihcy do not require they  arc requested to strike out, thus casing thc cost and work of mailing to  thc department. This is practical  economy. It is to be hoped that it  will be carried further and into more  important departments. Thc number  of blue books printed which are never  read or even referred to is appalling  and in the past the amount of public money thus wasted has been very  great. Let us all hope that thc new  order heralds a better and more careful spirit in the higher command. ���������  Ottawa Citizen.

Drivers of autos. throughout the province road carefully  tho finding and recommendation of the coroner's jury on  the recent Fraser river tragedy.  It is only natural for men as  they become more expert to  also become more reckless in  driving and more liable to exceed the speed limit. Quite fre  qticntry drivers in goingchrough  town turn the corner at a high  speed without sounding the  horn. Some day a coroner's  'jury will be compelled to charge  some driver who has neglected  to take tho necessary legal pro-  cautions with manslaughter.  Here is the verdict and recommendation of the jury on the  Eraser bridge tragedy:  ''That tho accident' had come  about through the negligence  of the driver of tho car, George  Smith, in not taking proper precautions to safeguard the live*  of his passengers.  "The jury also recommend  that all the drivers of automobiles carrying passengers be  compelled to undergo an examination before capable officials before getting licenses;  and that the normal seating  capacity of such cars be not allowed to be exceeded."  upon    himself."    "should   have  consulted   thc   whole   cabinet,"  or the "Eoss  rifle,"  etc.    Judging by thc  time it   takes other  departments   to  pay  their  accounts, if the other members of  the cabinet had  been consulted  there wouldn't  have been a Canadian   soldier   in   Franco    or  Belgium   today.     As   for   tho  Ross rifle, it was an inheritance  from   the  Laurier administration,   and   has   been   much   improved since 18U0. It was found  too cumbersome for trench war-  faro, so wero   the ideas  of the  British war office and   tho British   army  officers.    Both  were.  woefully behind  the times aud  with     moth-eaten    ideas.    The  empire has   been   learning war  since   the first  battle; short of  trained  officers  aud men, short  of guns and ammunition, in fact  short of every   necessity   in the  prosecution of a great war, but  courage.    Yes Sir Sam was one  of  the  many   who   made mistakes, but he didn't  hide them;  he    spoke    out   loud   aud   hit  straight from  the shoulder; he  wasn't  a diplomat,   and   some  diplomat wants his job.  j A.

It  must be  remembered that upwards   of 200,000  raw   recruits  have been equipped  with arms  and   clothing and  drilled   into'  possibly the best fighting forco  in the .world, for in addition to  all the best qualities  of the Old  Country forces, they  are more  resourceful,  owing   in   a  large  measure   to  their  mode of life  and their  democratic contempt  for caste.
