Ottawa. ��� With thc exception of
Ontario, apple crop prospects havc
improved in Canada, according to thc
August 1 report of -the fruit commissioner's branch, department of
Thc Tcport says: "Since our last
report was published prospects have
improved in Nova Scotia nnd British
Columbia. Wc arc now estimating
the Nova Scotia crop' ai 1,250,000
barrels, including" al1 grades packed
for export out of the province. As the
local consumption is estimated at
200,000 barrels, that biings thc total
crop up ' to nearly 1.500,000 barrels,
exclusive of fruit used by cvapora
tors, canning factories and ci
mills. With the extension of thc
Briiish apple embargo it is likely
lhat a large portion of the, crop will
bc exported. The Okanagan Valley
crop is now estimated at thirty pcr
cent, larger than last year, as' compared with the 25 per cent, increase
predicted in our last issue."

A distressing story was told of the

Herbert Leandrc, vvho, at the beginning of thc war, placed himself undci the orders of a German ��ecrct police agent. He denounced his own
I brother as giving shelter to a British aviator, accompanied German
spies on their search missions, used
torture to compel his unfortunate
compatiiots to confess, and struck a
man and his son and daughter in a
prison until blood came. "I was
drunk," he said, "and when I am
drunk I am mad." The German police agent whom hc served declared
that Leandrc was more terrible than
any German, and that he would have
him shot by thc French aftcr the

went into the lines and robbed the
bodies of soldiers, and when hc was

She is rarely taught how to choose and arrange the furnishings in her home, and
herself!    '        "        "P        ���     " a8S��?iates or the fa���'y *��� knowledge of how To dress
"A ^ yi-Sit- V<a"y I?��^ern high school will'quickly convince an observer that the
American girl is not-being trained to appropriately clothe herself. The fundamental
quality of every well-dressed woman,Avhich is consistency, is lacking to an alarming
UXJ ��lf?^8 ��F g" r,'i -j the "J1?���5810" "easily gained when looking at the student
body that they have come dressed for a, social function instead of the strenuous undertaking of going thru high school. The periods during which girls are most interested in
cfcthes are from 8 to 10 and from 14 to 1 7. During the first period they are young
enough to be governed by their mothers, and their clothes are more simple and appro-'
pr.ate; but during the latter period when the girl is neither a child nor a woman, but
has-very definite ideas about what she should wear and what she likes, it is often a case
ot the survival of the  fittest between the mother and her daughter.
America has taken its place in the world as standing for democracy, all having an'
even chance, and yet many of the best high schools in our country are closed to the
poorer classes of boys and girls because they cannot dress up to the standards set by the
wealthier members of the school, who probably compose the leading set and look with
scorn upon their modestly dressed companions,, who could far surpass them mentally.
Indulgent mothers of mcans are partly responsible for this condition, little realizing
the strain and sacrifice they arc imposing on other mothers less blessed financially Many
advocate uniform as the solution of the high school girl's problem of dress, bul we only
- learn to do by doing, and if we rob a gitl of all opportunity to choose during those years
when she is most interested in clothes, and when her ideas of right and wron-�� in regard
to them are being formed, how can we expect her to blossom into womanhood with a
full knowledge of what she should wear?
The reaction from several years in uniform is a dangerous thing also, for the opposite extreme is sought. A simple garment is repellant, and frills and furbelows only
will please. Other would-be reformers approach the girl from the physiological standpoint, trying to show her that a georgette blouse in winter and high-heel shoes will
shorten her years and deplete her_health m jaterjUfe. The average_high school girl is_
thinking little ot her middle life. She-cares very "little about "the position of her spinal
column or whether hei blood circulates properly or not. She is interested in "today"
and wishes to get as much pleasure out of it as she can, and to be a: good looking as
possible while she is doing it.
The State College for Women in Texas has done a wonderful work for the high
school girls of the state on this subject, and the approach is made from an art standpoint.
A person who is artistically dressed is consistently dressed. Whether the activity be
work or play, the appropriate garment is the one chosen by the person with good taste.
Beauty resulting from the choice of good and not cheap, camouflaged materials
and the possibilities of line and color in costume arc stressed. The girls are taught to
understand their own types so that they know how to select bccoimng��ciothes consistent
with the individual, and not just with a woman. This knowledge conserves time, money
��md nerve strain when a new costume is to be selected.
How many adults deplete the family purse by buying clothes which prJve to be unbe
coming and unused because they do not understand the simple language of line, contrast
and color in clothes!   We so often hear the expression, "The lines of this dress are not
right for me," and this is usually lealized only after the dress has been worn.
Naturehas not been equally, kind to all, but her oversights may often be di-��uised
by a cleverly constructed garment. A girl who is too large for her height should"avoid
all lines in her costume which will create a horizontal eye movement or cut her costum-
into parts. Wide belts and collars, decorative jsleeves and short tunia skirts she will
have to deny herself. Simple designs producing the impression of one piece to the dress
and soft materials moderately draped into long, gliding lines will seemingly reduce her
flesh" nnd add many inches to her height.

So many girls follow the prevailing fad in the way thcy comb their hair, whelh-r it
is becoming or not. and otten spoil a charming face by their ignorance of thc possibility
of line! "' ' : *
A girl's"hair is a frame for her face and a* faces vary from the delicate miniature

the face instead of the extreme style of the day.

Symbolizing Role of British Sea
Services in War Were Five
Miles of Craft.
London. ��� The important role
played by the Britisii sea service
during lhc great war was commemorated by a naval pageant on thc
Thames, the day marking tlic fifth
auuivcr.-iary of lhc historic mobilization of the Uritish fleet. Plans for
tlie event, while giving recognition
to the allied and as.<t>ci.itcd. powers
laid stress on the fact that this was
a purely Uritish occasion and the
Union Jack and the banners    of    St.
St.  Andrew and
St. David predominated iu decorations along the riverside. Tower
Bridge was the point selected for the
start of the  live-mile procession.
On account of thc fact that thc
space beneath the Thames bridges is
somewhat limited it was impossible
to include thc large vessels in thc
pageant, but the procession lost
nothing of interest on, account of
this. King George's royal barge was
in service'. It was built more than
200 years ago for Queen Mary by
King ''William and was richly ornamented  with  crimson  and  gold.
In planning the celebration, efforts
were made to symbolize the development of. Great Britain's naval -power
and typify the connection between
the navy and  the mercantile marine.
The procession, which was marshalled at thc Tower Bridge at 4 p.m..
spread o>.<t five miles and when the
head of tltc line reached Chelsea, and.
as it turned with the tide the 'tail of
thc procession was just leaving the
startipg point.- As it moved along
the Thames thc huge bank holiday
crowds which lined the-embankments
swarmed on the.-bridges and-perched
upon railings and roofs of houses
and in trees on both sides of thc
river gave thc pageant a tumultuous
. greeting.

of his experiences of winter flying in

thc government proposes is to pay

relieve him of thc responsibility of

Nach'rithtcn, says thc truth about the

The-letter asks King George, "In

extradition aud trial of thc former
emperor of Germany. The letter
which is signed "your humble cousin,
Henry," charges that England plotted   Germany's  commercial   downfall.
If thc allies want thc truth, lhc

statesmen of Great Britain and her
allies should also be brought before

Wireless Telephony
In Night flying
Test  Carried  Out During   a   Recent
Night Flight from Kenley to
Paris. -*���*'
London, England. ��� Thc extraordinary value of wireless telephony
for directional purposes in connection with aircraft has been emphasized recently in its relation to night
flying. It often happens that in daylight inter-communication between
planes, or between wireless stations
and aircraft is unnecessary, but in
flying across country at night the use
of the wireless phone will become
more and more efficacious.
Some details arjj now available of
a test carried out during a recent
night flight from Kcnlcy to Paris.
This in no way constitutes a record,
but is nevertheless interesting as indicating what is being done as a
matter of routine, Wireless telephony
has now heen definitely adopted as
a mcans of ground to air communication and vice versa, on the London-Pat is route, and thc test in
question vvas made with one of tire
first machines on this service fitted
for the purpose'
Communication was opened as soon
as thc Ilandley Page had obtained
height and, aftcr spcakit.g lo the
giound station, thc receiver vvas
turned in and speech was v:ry clearly heard from Kcnlcy. Thc officer
conducting the test emphasizes in
his report, speech, quality," and
strength, and states that hc easily
recognized the voice as that of an
officer known lo him. To a distance
of about 35 miles the strength of
signals vvas so great that speech from
the machine could be clearly heard
at Kcnlcy vvitli the receiver laid upon
tlie table. At 50 miles it was still
distinct and constant and was heard
until thc "aeroplane -was crossing, the.
channel and was in touch with Marquise, the first ground station on' the
French sidc.
On the return journey conversation
between thc machine and Marquise"
was again picked up at Kcnlcy, and
thc latter station itself was in communication with thc machine 30 minutes before it landed;  *
One of thc recent developments in
this connection is the production of

department of the bank, and Mr.
Holt, Vancouver, manager. _ During

examination of commercial conditions and prospects.
"The whole East offers very many
opportunities for Canadian trade; not
in any one particular thing, but generally," said Sir Edmund. "There is
one important point that I must emphasize, however, and that is that
there is no trade to bc obtained without a systematic campaign being- instituted lo capture it. It needs a fight
to capture thc citadel of thc East, but

Pride In The Dominion
Almost Always Due   to   Weak,   Im-
- p'overished Blood.
Apart from accident or illness due
to infection,"" almost all ill-health
arises from one or two reasons. The
great mistake'that people make is in
not realizing that both-'of these have i the strongest, fact brought home
ihe same^tauscat thc root of thiyji,
namely, poor "and-, improper blood.
Either, bloodlessncss'or some trouble
of the nerves will be.'found to be the
reason" for almost every -ailment. If
you arc pale, ��� suffer- from' headaches,
or bfeathlossn'css, with palpitation of
the heart, poor appetite and weak'digestion,- the cause is almost always
bloodlessness. If you havc nervous
headaches," neuralgia,- sciatica, and
other nerve pains, .the cause is run
down, exhausted.' nerves." But .run
down nerves arc also a result of poor
blood, so,, that the two-chief causes
of illness are one.and thc same.

Sir   G.   Perley   On    What    Canada
Accomplished During the War.
Ottawa. ��� Sir George Perley,
High Commissioner for Canada
London, England, has returned to
the capital aftcr an absence of several years. In the course of some
remarks to an interviewer, Sir George
Perley said that to his mind "perhaps
us all bi* thc war-is thc strength and
influence of thc English-speaking
peoples when thcy work ancl pull together. Wc all hope for the success
of thc League of Nations, but I believe thc first essential to thc peace
of thc world is the continued close
fiicndship now so happily established
between the United Stales and thc
Briiish Empire.
"Wc arc all proud of what Canada
has been able to do in the war. Wc
are proud of our fighting forces and
of the way our organization was carried through. No words can express"
our admiration for thc patience and
devotion of our women and thc way
in which our people backed up those
at th_c_ front. Thc_tcst camclo Canada unexpectedly and I doubt if
any of us realized how great her
strength really was' or .how fine au
effort could bc made by a country
with such a smali population. The
feelings uppermost iu our minds today should bc keen rejoicing lhat
victory is really with us aftcr our
bitter struggle, and grateful thankfulness that we have been able to do
our share honorably and enduring
pride in thc gallant deeds of our
brave troops which will bc an inspiration to all generations of Canadians."-

Mower Inventor Dies, Poor

in ������ fact, of the' first horse-driven

more than 65 ycars ago that Mr. En-
triken invQiited a harvesting machine,
and he "did his work so well that the
principles he utilized at tliat early
day arc still found on all the mowers
made since.
The mower attracted thc widest
interest, in all farm1 communities of
thc country, and Mr. Enliikcn, who
rarely spoke of the experience, stated
that arthe outset hc had been offered
a royalty���the equivalent of $20 for
each machine���which in the ensuing
quarter-of a century would have netted him at least $30,000,000. However, bn this point the. inventor never
complained; His only disappointment
lay in the fact that thc farmers for

were obliged to pay more . for vthc

Strengthen The

Good Road.-: and Schools Are Among
the Essentials.
If .we do not insist upon thc best
sort of farm homes, and in every
way make it easy for those who pursue farming, to secure and maintain

set up such' standards of farm lifc as
shall keep men and women happy in
their woik and surroundings, we will
find ourselves facing a disastrous

strength, as well as our production.
To guard against such a contingency we must make good roads, better schools and niorc active churches

no satisfactory'farm life where transportation and social intercourse arp

London.���Marshal Foch paid a remarkable tribute to Field-Marshal

generalissimo sajd:
"He spared more than any otl'Cr
tlie lives of his men. What interviews wc had during those last six
months! He from thc north and I
from the south, despite jjreat distances and fatigue, sought each other
like two big brothers in order to live
in closest intimacy and ensure by absolute community of ideas thc monj
and more rapid march of our armies.
We had to do so to fojc.fi events, .
"On that November 9 1 sent Field-
Marshal Haig the following telegram,

"Thc disorganized enemy, owing

Torture Of Greeks Alleged
Turkish "Officials   Along  Black
Coast Are Accused.
Ncw York. ��� The American Committee for Relief in the' Near East
has madc public a letter fiom Dr.
George E. White, representative of
the committee, to Prof. J.--P. Xcnidcs,
secretary of thc Greek Relief Committee here, charging that Turkish
officials decimated thc Greek population of 250,000 along the Black Sea
coast, between Sinope and Ordu,
without bloodshed, but by "parboiling" tlic victims in Turkish baths'"
and turning thcm, half clad, into thc
snow in the Anatolian winter.
Thc worst of these crimes, thc letter says, wcrc committed in tlic winter of 1916 and 1917, when orders
were issued for thc deportation of
thc Greeks along the Black Sea
coast.' Under thc pretense of "sanitary" regulation, thc people, it is
said, were crowded into the steam
rooms of the baths in Chorum, and,
after being torlmed for hours, wcrc
turned out into snow almost knee
deep, without lodging or food, and
with their garments taken away.
In the Province of Bafra, less lhaSi
13,000 of the 29,000 Greeks now survive, "and evcry Greek settlement has
been burned, sajs Dr. White, and the
number of orphans in the . entire
district is -60,000, including some
Armenian and Turkish children.

Strength Of Canada's
Wheat Commends It
Weak   Wheats   of   England- Require
Mixing With the Strong Wheats
of Canada.
The baking1 strength of Canadian
wheat is what commends it the most
to the' English trade. The weak
wheats of England require mixing
with the strong wheats of Canada.
As long as the Dominion . produces
wheat that will answer this purpose,
just as long will Canada's wheat be
popular with the English miller.
There is only one way in which Canada could weaken her reputation
for the production ofwheats of high
baking strength, and that is by the
individual grower shifting his attention from the .recommended ��� and
well-Jcnown varieties of Canadian
wlicat to unknown sorts which have
not been thoroughly tested and their
baking strength established, according to a recent statement by the
Dominion Ccrcalist,. C, E. Saunders,

Fine Wheat Samples
.    From Irrigated Farms
Most Fields On Irrigated Land Will
'Yield Between Thirty and Forty
Bushels to the'Acre'.
Some excellent samples of wheat
and other grains are being brought
into town from thc irrigated farms.
The samples measure from three feet
six. to four feet six inches in height,
and at the time" of cutting the heads
were rapidly filling and the grain
ripening. Most of thc fields of wheat
on irrigated land will yield between
thirty and forty bushels to the acre
of an excellent quality of grain, while
many fields will have still heavier
yields. The area of irrigated land.-lu"
crop is growing larger every .year. -
A conservative estimate places it> this
year at about one hundred thousand
acres, but it would not be surprising
judging by the irrigated land now
being prepared for crop next ycar,
if the area is not considerably more
than doubled in 1920.

Japanese Used Insidious Means To
Spread Use of Morphia and
Other Drugs.
Washington, District of Columbia.
������ While recent statistics as to the
amount of morphia and othci' drugs
lhat hr.ve been smuggled into China
arc not available, reports indicate
that the illegal trade is being carried
on extensively in spile of the protests
of the Japanese Government that it
has forbidden Jai.iicaC to engage in
this trade and has prohibited thc drug
from being carried through the mails.
Japan, however, also made it illegal
to open, a suspected package to ascertain what its contents were, it is
II. F. K.utig, the Shantung representative at the l'cacc Conference,
who was here recently on his way to
China, testified that the Japanese
were taking morphia into Shantung
in largc quantities. Another Chinese
official said:
"Jl i.s part of llie Japanese program

the morale of lhe people whom they

Thcy should not buy drugs from thc
Japanese, but thc fact remains that
it is a part ol" thc Japanese policy
deliberately to tempt thc 'weak and
to debauch the Chinese by any means
in their power. To counteract tlicir
efforts we arc carrying on .constantly
a campaign of education, and arc
earnestly warning our people not to
lend themselves to these inimical designs of. Japan.
"We suffer yet from thc curse of
opium. Because our people used it
for so long thcy were thc readier to
become tlic prey of the Japanese
when they tempted them with drugs
for which thcy yearned. I think the
boycott that China has instituted for
another purpose may be of some
help in thc efforts we are making to
stamp . out the Japanese- traffic in
drugs in  China."
An American who had been many
years in Japan said that within his
knowledge thc Japanese had used insidious means to spread the use of
morphia and other drugs among the
Chinese. One method emplo3rcd, he
.said, was to point out to them that
since missionaries gave thciu drugs
sometimes, it must be a good thing.

Japanese are carrying on business of

Parliament To
Meet September
Urgent    Need    in   Matter   of  Peace
Ratification   Puts   Session
Date Ahead.
Ottawa.   ���   Parliament    meets    on
Monday, September 1.   On  thc same
day the Prince of Wales will lay the
corner stone of the tower of the ncw
parliament  buildings.   The  session  is
not expected to  last  more than four
or five  weeks.    Ratification    of    the
peace  treaty  will    be    the    principal
Since prorogation,    July 17,    there
has been considerable correspondence
with  the imperial  government- in  regard  to   thc  necessity   of  eaily   lati-
fication  of the treaty.   Already a bill
to   approve   ratification    has    passed
both  houses  at Westminster and  received  thc  royal  assent.   Deposit   of
the British  ratification    is    therefore
but a formal step awaiting    the    approval   of   the  overseas  parliaments.
Throughout the correspondence, it is
authoritatively   stated,   the  Dominion
government    has    finally   taken    the
stand that before  the formal deposit
of  British  ratification    at   Paris    thc
treaty must first bc submitted to the
Canadian   parliament.   A recent communication from the imperial government on  the subject  emphasizes   the
urgency.   For this reason, parliament
has    been    summoned    lo   meet    on
September 1.
While consideration' of   tlic   peace
treaty il self will bc lhc primary business before parliament there will necessarily  arise   the   question   of  continuing legislation  passed  under   the
War Measures act.   With    the    proclamation  of peace    the   War Measures act will cease to exist and with
it will terminate thc life of the Dominion    order-in-council   prohibiting
manufacture,  importation   and   intcr-
provincial   trade in  alcoholic liquors,
the  order-in-council   forbidding   race
track betting and a number of others.
During  tlic session  which    closed   a
month   ago  thc   government  brought
in a  bill to  continue the prohibition
order-in-council    for   twelve   months
after the termination of thc war, but
a senate amendment to   restrict    thc
bill to the war time period ended..it.
The bill failed to pass.   Another bill
will, therefore, bc necessary.
It is iully realized here that the
date selected for thc opening of j
parliament will be somewhat inconvenient for those engaged in active
farming operations. But thc urgency
of the session, it is emphasized, made
it necessary to take thc course which
has been taken.     -

On a Western Cattle Ranch.
To raise two head of cattle where only one
could otherwise bc raised���that is what thousands
of fanners all over the American continent havc
been able to do with the help of silos. -It is no
wonder, then, that as the land in Western Canada
is becoming more settled, silos should bc making
lhcir appearance in greater and greater numbers
there. Already in Manitoba many fanners arc beginning to look upon thc silo as a necessary part of
the farm, and more than a hundred of them arc in
use in various parts of thc province. Saskatchewan
and Alberta, together have probably about half lhc
number as Manitoba, and the number in all the
provinces is being slowly but surely added to every
With plenty of unoccupied prairie land growing
an abundance of nutritious grasses thc cattle feed
problem in Western Canada has not been a really
difficult one iu thc past. During thc summer
months thc-stock could forage over a largc section
of the.country and there was no need for the owner
to compute how many acres would support a cow.
Thc obtaining of winter feed was just a-matter of
energy���a man could havc as much hay as he could
cut, free for the cutting. With such conditions as
these, and thej' still prevail in many parts of the
country, the need for silos has not been greatly felt
up to now.
But the days of free range are drawing to 3
close. Already there-are parts of thc country where
little or none is to be had. And as thc country is
getting more and more settled, and, moreover, as a
system of mixed farming is becoming the rule
throughout everjr province, even--in those parts
where for many-ycars straight grain growing was
practised, the need for some additional mcans of.,
ensuring a steady supply of feed all llic year round
is beginning to make itself felt in van
Western Canada.
Silos will,' therefore, continue- to spring up
throughout the country. Near Lacombe, Alberta,
a ranching comjjjiny, which has .made a great reputation for the7'quality of bccf'it produces, is contemplating thc erection of four new silos this year.
This compan3r has found with the silos it has in-use
that it can maintain double the number of cattle
hitherto supported on thc same area of land. Many
smaller farmers arc having the same experience.
It is, as one farmer aptly expressed it, "like getting
another farm for nothing." In. times not long past
it was not difficult to get a farm "for nothing" or
"next lo nothing" almost    anywhere    in    Western
��� Canada, and although land is still very cheap compared with its',productive capacity, it is not always
.easy for a" fanner in older settled districts, to expand, and the only thing for him to do to- increase
bis' production', and thus his prosperity, is id intensify his -methods.. That this stage is being reached
in some districts .is a good sign for .the future-development of-the country. . : ��� - : . '

the almost insuperable difficulty of
effectively combatting the propaganda of thc Bolshevists, whose agents
arc everywhere working among�� tlie
illiterate Russians, though they are
completely unsuccessful, in districts!
which have experienced the tcrror of

Drake's Drum
One of the Recently Built Albertan Silos.
nous parts    of
a movement- that may eventually lead to the. establishment of silos on-most of the farms ih this
territory. It is a country admirably suited for dairying and other branches of the livestock industry, ���
capable of producing sufficient food for the support
of hundreds'of thousands of horses, cattle, sheep or
swine. Most of the farms arc for WesternCanada,-
on thc small-side, generally from 80 to 320 acres
each. But the soil is wonderfully fertile, and with
an assured supply of moisture made possible by irrigation, will grow abundant .crops of grain and
fodders, including wheat, oats, barley, alfalfa, various kinds of grasses and clovers, and also roots
and--vegetables.'. For ensilage purposes, corn, sunflowers, alfalfa, peas, oats, and many other crops
can be grown. In years to comc this part of Alberta will be one of thc greatest food producing
areas in the world.
What crops arc used for ensilage purposes in
Western Canada? In Manitoba corn is mostly used,
but in Alberta peas and oats arc most popular.
Other crops used arc ��� stidan grass, millets, rape,
buckwheat and alfalfa. Sunflower is also being
tried, but at present it'is only-in lhc experimental
stage. The success with which peas and oats are
grown, the enormous yields and high feeding value
of the mixture, together with its succulence, pala-
tability and flavour, account for its popularity and
it will always maintain a leading place with the
farmers of the most westerly of the Praiiic Provinces,'no matter what strides ma5r bc made in the
growth of suitable vaiieties of corn.
Silos arc coming to stay in Western Canada.
Their appearance in slowly in ci easing numbers is a
landmark in the development of the country. As
they increase in numbers the prosperity of the
country will grow, and, as one far-sighted man has
put it, "Western Canada will then not only bc the
granary of the world, but a universal provisioncr
as well."

have Jo run thc gauntlet through

just 48 years from the date on which
the German Empire was^ proclaimed
by an army of invasion in Chateau of

Men . on   Board   Royal   Oak   Heard
.Rolling of Druni When Hun
Fleet Surrendered.
"If lhc Dons sight Devon, I'll quit
up thc Channel as we drummed them
long, ago."
_ Every Englishman knows the prophecy of Drake's drum as Sir Henry
Newbolt sets it forth Jji his West
Country song, and this is thc talc,
told by Mr. Arthur Machcn, in the
Outlook, of. how. Devon men heard
the great Admiral's drum on November-21, 1918, thc day of thc surrender
of the German fleet. -
"One of the ships was the Royal
Oak, chiefly manned by sailors of
Devonshire. She was flying on that
day a magnificent silk ensign, made
for her by Devonshire ladies". On her
bridge sixty feet above the top deck,
was. a: group of officers: Admiral
Grant, Captain Maclachlan, of the
Royal Oak, thc commander, and
others. It was soon aftcr 9 o'clock
in thc morning when the German
fleet appeared, looming through the
mist. Admiral Grant saw them, and
waited; hc could scarcely believe, h��
says, that thcy would not instantlj
open fire.
. "Then the drum began to  beat   on
thc Royal Oak.    The sound was .unmistakable;    it   was   that of a small
drum being beaten "in rolls.!' At first
thc. officers, on fhe bridge paid little
attention, if any, to the sound,-so intent were thcy on   thc   approaching
enemy.   But wheri>it'. became evident
that thc Germans were not to show-
fight, Admiral Grant turned   to    the
captain of the Royal Oak   and    re- -
marked on the beating of the drum.
The captain said that hc heard it, but
could not understand   it,    since    the
ship was cleared for action, and every
man on board was at his battle station.    Thc commander   also-   heard,
but could not understand,  _and   sent
messengers all over the ship    to    investigate. Twice the messengers were   ,
sent about the   ship���about   all   the
decks. Thcy reported that every man   -
was at his station.    Yet   thc    drum
continued, to beat.    Then    the   commander himself made a special tour
of investigation   through" thc   Royal
Oak.   Hc, loo, found that cvery man
was at his station. ���
"All thc while the British fleet was
closing round thc German fleet, coming to anchor in a square about it,"so
that the German ships were hemmed
in. And all the while that:.this was
being done, the noise of the drum
was heard at intervals, beating .ii��-
rolls. All who heard it are convinced that it was no sound of flapping stays or. any such accident. The -
car of-;the naval officer is attuned to
all the noises of'his ship in fair" weather and in foul; it 'makes no mistakes. All who heard knowsihat thcy.
heard the rolling of a drum.
"At about 2 o'clock in "the afternoon thc German fleet was enclosed
and helpless, and the British ship*
dropped anchor, some fifteen.nlile*
off the Firth of Forth. Thc utter, irrevocable ruin and disgrace .of the
German navy we're consummated.
And at that "moment the drum stopped beating and was no-more heard.
"But those who had heard it,   ad-   -
miral, captain, commander, other of��
ficers and men of   all   ratings,   held
then and hold  now one belief as to
that rolling music.   Thcy believe that
the sound they heard   was   that   of

provided they desire to join, yet it
was realized that the desire at present non-existent and therefore thc
