A Canadian claims credit for inventing the tank as an instrument of warfare.     A. tractor   salesman   ot . an
American ' concern   claims Ihe .same,
and a, British subject living" in England claims similar ciedit.     IL would

IJut whoever invented the uiulc^in-
vented a now onginif of war which ia
here to siaj;,for a time, at least, No
.- matter who invented the tank, the
tale of ils manufacture is,one ol'"great
human interest. " " -,      ,.-���
The plans for the tank were submitted , to'tho British'war ollice and
were approved. Great Britain was
alive with.German spies aud only a
few'trusted-oflicials were let in tbe
s>ecrel. A place was sol aside In the-
north of England foi the 'manufacture of the new engine of war. Some
gieat sheds were built   in   the   liearl
- of   a   large   country   estate and the
��� place was picketed.     In order to satisfy  the curiosity  ofj.lie nearby in-
- habitants, tliey were told that a new
and mo:.t deadly explosive was being
niaiiul'ac(ured,"'lho slightest "jar sufli-
cieut lo explode, if. The explanation^
was 'satisfactory and the pickets* had
lillie'to do In keeping curiosity seekers at. a .sole distance. "-
;   A largo.nuinber of the tanks were
' built and were ready Tor -shipment to

against llie danger.   ���
���   When storing clothing see thai no
