The triumphant entry into Warsaw, of the  ���������Juberhuman in shining armor has been now inde-  initely postponed, and his cloak and carriage  Raptured.  The utter rout of the right wing of the Ger-V  lah army under the Crown Prince was sav������d,  tt is said, at the cost of the Austrian division held  In reserve at Weilun.  The German army around Lodz, under com-^.  and   of   General   von   Mackenzen   has   been  |'crushed and dispersed."   One portion of it is reported as hastening due north in an effort to join  >rces with General Francois' command at Sol-  Jan ; but they have the Vistula to cross and their  position in ai^ilitary sense, is not an enviable  jne. r s  It is estimated that von Hindenburg has loit  ine quarter of his effective force in this ill-ajdvised  t*aid.  The German corps which was permitted to  Break through the Bussian center at Brzeziny is  low held i}p by the Russian troops just north of  >dz and whilst still at bay and refuting to sur-  ender, it is merely., a matter of time when they  lust lay down their arms or be annihilated.  Disaster is the word for the Germans. Deci-  ive victory for the Grand Duke.. Jt settles all  |ttought of further invasion and the, Russians, are  lid to be pressing their armies forward against  xe main German positions at Breslau, Posen ������nd  Fhorn.  Breslau is reported in a state of panic at the  Russian approach.   All business is suspended and  Ihe better class are in flight.   Seven thousand  [���������efugees from, Breslau have arrived in Munich.  The Russians are now in complete command  If the easy passes through the Carpathian moun-  lains and the way to Budapest���������the Hungarian  ipital lies open before them across that country's  fertile plains.  Cracow will now be fully invested, the battle  front in Silesia  and   East   and   West   Prussia  lanned and   thoroughly   entrenched   and   the  iareh.6n3u3a-?e^ll> Vtenna, Dresden ,and3er-^  \m begun. .  The publication by a first class Ijondon Daily,  if a reputed prophecy, said to have been discovered recently in which the Kaiser���������as a son of  juther is described as the Anti Christ against  |lvhom Pope Benedictus issues a: bull indicates the  rithdrawil of papal support from the Alliance  ind the open and active adhesion of Rome to the  ginning side.  The advent of 40,000 Russian troops in Servia  laving travelled from Russian territory 500 miles  kp the Danube indicates at least the benevolent  Neutrality of Roumania and Bulgaria. It is now  llmost assured that the Balkan states have ar-  inged their differences and will soon actively  [o-openate with the Allies? Portugal and Italy  |re also on the eve of breaking in and the Allies  }n now slay:"Come  on in  boys���������the water'&/  Sne!"   " ���������;���������'.-<'������������������;.  The war with Turkey progresses favorably.  the Russians have driven the Turks before them  trough the mountains, and are pressing them  ird against their main fortress Erzeoum.   v  Lord Kitchener reports that1 the British forces  Jj*e now in touch with the Turks 30 miles east of  le Suez Canal and that the position is emminent-  satisfactory.  Little change is reported from Flanders.- Dix-  laude has been recaptured and the embryo navial  ]ase at Zeebrugge, where the Germans were as-  smbling-submarines and Zeppelins, bias been  completely destroyed -with all its belongings by  le guns of two British battle ships. ^  Victories and slight advances are reported  rom Arras and Verdun and a notable aeroplane  laid from Belfort. . Three young Britishers in-  faded the German air as far as the great Zeppe-  ya construction plant at Friederichshaven on Lake  Constance and, aided by aslight fog got within =  L few hundred feet of.the Hangars and works and  Effected much destruction ere being driven off.  The distance travelled was 120 miles and back  through the enemies country. ..-'������������������.  Ca  ftan Ottawa* -'Free Press"  As Ottawa Sees Our Member  GERMANY'S BIG GUNS AJ.Ii NEUD REPAIRS  ��������� London, Nov. 27.���������Germany's-eight 17-inch  howitzers, the great seige guns which played such  havoc with the fortifications of Liege, Namur,  ���������Ma������berge and. Antwerp,, have Jjeen returned toV  the Krupp works at Essen for repairs. They  have been severely strained and their breeches  ;have been damaged in the fighting it is said.  THE WAR l-OAN  London, Nov. 27���������Lloyd George announced in  Parliament to-day that the War Loan had been  greatly,oversubscribed. The Chancellor gave no  figures, but said that a marked feature of the  subscription was the number of individuals, totalling over 100,000, who had made application for  small sums.   These would receive first attention.  The Scandinavian countries are mobilizing and  are reported to have combined to defend their  neutrality, against all-coiners.  ���������-��������� TBe British Battleship Bulwark (1902) 12,000  toils, 750 men, was utterly destroyed by an explosion as she lay off Sheerness, estuary of the  Thames on Thursday.   Only 14 of the men were  . saved.  An accident some experts say. A commission  has been appointed to investigate. "An enemy  has done this thing" is our own opinion and it  , may weir be worth careful investigation for there  can be no doubt but that the Kaiser has had something besides "Big guns" up hjs sleeve before he  undertook the conquest of the world.���������The complete collapse of Admiral Craddock's fleet before  the Germans will bear some investigation as well  as the sinking of the Bulwark; the cause may be  the same in both instances and may be neither  guns nor torpedoes.'  WWBSIPENT WILSON THINGS IT WRONG  FOR AIR 0RAFT TO ATTACK NON  OOHRATAirrS.

TEN MILLION MEN IN  x - #.������gH f EHE ���������  Sir:���������Sitting at my camp fire in the almost  impenetrable forest of Graham Island, B. C, a  few miles from the most northwesterly corner of  the British Empire, the fortnightly mail just in,  I search through my paper for the latest war news  and read September llth, Vancouver news. Then  I turn to the English papers and find "Spectator"  "Daily Telegraph and "Times" of mid-August;  then the "Literary Digest" of Philadelphia, and  I settle down to the leading articles. In three out  of the four last named I find the words "This  Amazing War."  Now, I- am amazed to see the "Spectator"  writing in a vein which shows it has no idea of the  situation whatever.   It speaks of England beaten  to her knees.  How many seconds would England  be on her knees? Just as long as it took Germany    '  to dig the grave and no longer.   Do the English  papers really think, as I gather they do, that  Germany is fighting for England's trade and commerce, or that she didn't quite foresee that for a   '  time she (Germany) must lose all her own foreign ~  trade while fighting for far nwjre than that.   The  most that England seems to expect from a'defeat  is the loss of her Empire and the payment at  about three-fourths *ot the .cost of the war. That's     ^  a small part of what Germany is fighting for.    '"  Does England understand that whereas William  the First conquered Eugland,. dispossessed mostN  o.f the Saxons and gave-their property to Normans, William the Second would do far worse,  than that; all Wbuld be dispossessed after being'  most throughly disarmed..  Does England think that if France were defeated French would still be taught   in   French ,  schools, or English spoken anywhere but in America, (or as near as they like to get to it).   The \  Kaiser has six sons, if they win they will be the  six kings of Europe and Great Britain.  . Germany has fourteen million soldiers, if they  they win will be fourteen million land owners, of  Europe.   Something worth fighting for! "  This,' and' this only, explains the tearing up of  treaties. This, and this only, explains the German atrocities. For, not only must the war be  won by any means fair or foul, but the populations which are to be subjected must in the process  be thoroughly terrorized.  If only the picture were once seen in its completed form Kitchener would not be appealing to  the population of Great Britain for half a million  men, but there would be ten million men in the  Empire clamouring for rifles. " .    X  With this picture before one can one expect  that Germany will respect treaties or anything*  else? The prizeis toobig,randfromthe^ point'of ^"  view that they are barbarians they cannot be  .blamed. But they should not be treated as if they  were sportsmen or honorable foes. Does anyone  believe: thut if the German war party could get  hold of a gas or explosive which would* murder  every man, woman and child in France and England they would hesitate ..about,using it! There  are two classes in Germany, the Socialist f������nd the  war party, all are soldiers, and everyone of them  carries a '' Castle in Spain" in his haversack.  Thirty years ago T was staying at Slough near  Windsor, and met a highly educated German who  was mathematical master and an army coach. I  went for a walk with him, and shall never forget  the.conviction with which he spoke when he said.  "We Germans are barbarians and in the next war  you will see it." The educated German is a scientific barbarian, and his intention to do the very  thing he - js doing now in all its details has been  ^hewn in many ways* in the last ten years, only  we wouldn't believe it.  I was in England three years ago, and still remember Robert Blachford 's p.imphlet. He showed  plainly that "Germany will be ready in 1914 to  fight England for possession of the Empire, and  will make, or seize upon, some small excuse to  declare war. Few listened to him. Even he, I  think, did not grasp the full extent of what Germany means by the conquest of Europe. It isn't  trade, though that would come, nor even dominion ; it is dispossession;; and the German language  from end to end, and all that that implies. A  temporary loss of commerce while fighting for  the actual ownership of the country���������houses and  treasures of Europe and England, was foreseen  and; is nothing to her. This explains why she  locks up her fleet, at present, she never intended  to use it until Europe should be at her feet, and "  the French and Russian flets should be hers.  Jn one matter v?e are to blame, we have unconsciously fooled Germany ; for years we have  shown great fear of her, and she has mistaken  fear for cowardice; she came to the conclusion ������  that we were no more to be reckoned with on  land than Belgium or Servia. Three surprises  which should co3t her the game.  B. C. LAND SURVEYOR  1 Victoria, B. C. THE WESTERN CALL.

A recent bulletin of the Maine Agricultural  , Experiment Station shows that the poultryman  or farmer can materially   add   to   the   profits  of   his   business   by   properly   caring   for   the  droppings   of   his     fowls.     For   example,   it  is shown that, the droppings from 1,000 fowls  if preserved without nefedles, loss are worth at  ���������. least $300 per annum, and this estimate is- based  on the assumption that less than half of the drop-  ; pings, or only 30 pounds per hen per year, can  be collected.  V According to the Maine Station, the droppings  should be collected daily and mixed with substances which will (1) prevent loss of nitrogen, (2)  add sufficient potash and phosphoric acid to make  a better-balanced fertilizer, and (3) improve the  mechanical condition of-:the^iih:anuW:so-tKS:t'itT^^ti''  beapplied to the land with _t manurespreader.  This can be done as follows: Tp each 30 pounds  of the manure add 10 pounds of sawdust, good  dried loam, or peat, 16 pounds of acid phosphate,  and 8 pounds of kainit. Such a misture'WilL'con-'  t^mlabouO  of phosphoric acid, and 2 per <5ent of potash,  which, used a. the rate of 2 tons per acre would  furnish 50 pounds of nitrogen, 185 pounds of  phosphoric acid, and 80 pounds of potash, and at  the present price of fertilizing ingredients is  worth about $10 per ton. The mixture fould  furnish a well-balanced stable fertilizer, which,  although not fine enopgh to work well in drills,  can be sucessfully applied with a manure spreader  The treated manure should be well sheltered until time to apply to the land1���������that is, shortly before ploughing:-���������From the i' Conneticut; Agricul:  tural College Pjress Bulletin."     '//'��������� :X :  USE BKmmXtlL FOR FATTENING CHICKENS  / Skim milk is one of the best fattening foods  j Oatmeal and finely ground buckwheat are also  good. Low grade flour may be used, but most of  the fattening ration should be made of the two  former. Mix the meal as a gruel and feed the  chickens lightly afc the start; Great care should  be taken not to overfeed in the forepart of the  fattening period. JCeep the birds hugry practically all of the time, then during the latter part  of the fattening, feed all they will eat up clean  at ,two'- or three different times eich day.  Under proper management each - chicken  should put on a pound increase in weight in about  two weeks. ������The best weight to take chickens  f^fattening" is~a  5 cents a pound increase over lean chickens  should be expected. This will make quite difference in the value between a lean and a  fattened chicken. Fattening poultry is cerT  tainly a profitable business, and sour skim milk  j reduces the cost of feeding and adds to the pro-  t fit.���������M. A. J.

The following extracts from the October number of the "Bible in the World", the magazine of  the British and Foreign Bible Society, will be of  interest.  The Bible Societe has not forgotten the needs  of the loyal contingents from the overseas Dominions who are hastening to the assistance of the  mother country. Already there have been despatched to Quebec 35,000 copies of the specially  bound New Testament, ordered by_the Canadian  Bible Society for distribution among the Canadian  contingent.. To South Africa 5000 English and  5000 Dutch New Testaments are being sent out;  while arrangements are also: being made to supply  Australian and New Zealand expeditionary forces. - - ���������������������������"'-. .    <\ ��������� '��������� .;  A letter has come from the headquarters of  the Central European Agency at Berlin, after a  silence lasting several weeks. The Bible House remains open, and the staff have been busily engaged in coping with the' demand for Testaments  and Gospels for distribution among the German  troops on the march. Altogether about 100,000 copies of the Scriptures have been distributed by the  society in Germany during the time of the mobilization.  In the German empire and Austria-Hungary  the bible society circulated last year 600,000 copies of the scriptures at an expenditure of over  8000 pounds, mainly upon c.olportage. In France,  Belgium and the Russian empire, the society circulated last year 815,000 copies, and expended  about 17,000 pounds.  Those who have not informed themselves on  the question have little idea \of the amazing  growth of the circulation of the Bible during the  last hundred years.' It is but little more than a  ceutury ago that Voltaire, prophesied that in a  hundred years. the Bible would be an extinct  book. How has that prophecy been fulfilled?  From 1804 to 1817 the total issues of Bibles and  portions of the^same in all Europe and America  were about three million copies, or an average of  less than a quarter of amillion ayear, distributed  in less than seventy languages. At present tbe  thirty Bible societies of the world which exist for  the specific purpose of publishing the^'Word of  God without,note or comment, issue the whole  Bible or portions of it in over.500 languages and  the aggregate of circulation is- about 18,000,000  copies a year. Then there are Bibles and portions printed by private publishing firms, returns/  of which have recently-been gathered for the first  time;:. and these add 10,000,000 copies to the  annual output. Thus we have 28,000 000 or more  than 120 times the annual output of a century  ago. And besides this, there are the many millions of copies of texts and quotations circulated  annually in our marvellously developed Sunday  School literature and the literature of the  churches. Historians and archaeologists are  every year making discoveries by which fresh  light is focussed upon the records of Holy Writ.  Each fresh discovery will magnify the miracle  of its history and preservation and tend to demonstrate more clearly the fact that the Bible is notv  a- mere book but is a living and inextinguishable  source of light and life as well as of wisdom.

WIPE THE SLATE CLEAN  Few writers are more often referred to at the  present day that the German pessimistic philosopher ; Friedrich Nietzsche,-, whose writings are  believedto have had much to do in-forming the  terrible characteristics prominent in the German  soldiery; at work in Belgium arid France. The  teaching of his book "Thus; Spake Zanathuitra"  has been summarised as Vfbllows ���������-���������*' Seeing the  misery caused by sin and the freedbiri bf the animal "unfettered By,a. sense of crime, to whom the  conscience never wakes", Nietzsche finds the  cause of this misery not in sinj the reality of which  he denies, but in the morality which presumes  to say Don't. If, like the animal, we .frankly say  Yes to every impulse,'life wbiild he thinks,be full,  rich,��������� and free.-"-.-'. XX.  X'..-.,XT  ':',. It. is satisfactory to find that altogether only  about 3,500 copies of his great work have ever  been sold to British people.  The above is taken from a critiqueVotiNietz-  che 's bookbysaMontreal naper and, whilst the limited-circulation of the, book in Britain is so far  hopeful it does not in the least abate the fact that  for the past quarterof-'_a'-:cenH^iiie^'iafMbsphe7ie''  of bur Universities and Theological Seminaries  and the preaching of multitudes of our pulpits has  been tainted by German philosophy and that confessedly the Nietzsehean philosophy has completely conquered the German Nation ��������� Kaiser ���������  War-Lords ��������� professors, preachers and "the common herd" ��������� until a hardly a sane German remains to tell the taieXX-V XXX- X ..V- ^ :  ;    That this is the? root reason why wJe are now.  fighting our old Protestant friend arid'illy is beyond all question.   This is the. spiritual reason���������  the unseen reason and therefbre the real reason.  -Now that the fat is m the fire Nietzsche is being, openly crucified and altogether with his even  cruder and inader brother Atheist Treitcschke  blamed entirely for the German debacle,  t But this is.not fair and will not'help us find  the real devil who is seducing the nations.   The  crude, bald, materialistic arinimalism of Nietzsche  apd Treitzschke. piay be compared to, the gross  Mediaeval Devil with long pointed ears.and clov-  eri hoof and forked tail, such a devil could only  be dangerous in a despiritualized age.  X The BiMe describes Satairiac Ian yAngel  bf  Jjight, and before his fall, the most beutiful creation of Heaven!  The idealistic transcendentalism of Immanuel  J������ant,is ias purely Atheistic as the Nietzsehean materialism and to a spiritually minded people far  more dangerous. With the German people the  Kant stage came first and prepared the way���������  but before Kant came, what is now called "The  Higher Criticism" destroying, in the minds of  the people, Bible Christianity and leaving a mere  shell of sacrementarian formalism���������-from the horrible hypocrisy bf which the German nation has  turned back to Pagan animalism and the Pagan  virtue that might is right...  Whilst the teachings of Nietzsche and Treitzschke "are being denounced on every hand from  pulpit and press we notice that the subtler forms  of German Atheism are still.extolled.  As a matter of fact our present day teaching  is rotten with Neitzscheism.  Fra Elberta says "The fear of the Lord is the  beginning of folly" and is loudly applauded. As  Nietzsche indicates it is the fear of God that must  be eradicated from the human heart ere the real  super-man can appear.  ������  Pastor Russell is busy by word of mouth, pamphlet, press and photo-play at this business of  fear eradication and although the regular churches are down on Pastor Russell it is not because  they too have not succumbed to the philosophic  **^j������*************^&<<^  BE PREPARED!

NAPOLEON'S ESTIMATE OF THE NATIONS  Napoleon Bonaparte in his later days at St.  Helena gave out the following: "The English character is superior to ours. They are in everything  more practical than we are. They emigrate, they  marry, they.kill themselves, with less indecision  than we display in going to the opera. They are  also braver than we are. I think that one can  say that in courage they are to us what we are to  the Russians, what the Russians are to the Germans, what the Germans are to the Italians. Hadv  I had an English army I should have conquered  the universe, for I could have gone all over the  world c without demoralizing my troops. Ha.d I  been in 1815 the choice, of the English, as I was  of the.French. I might have lost the battle of  "Waterloo. without losing a vote in the Legislature  or avsoldier from my ranks. I should have, won  the game." . , v  THE WAY OF THE PATHAN  <.*****************^**^*r**^^  Northeastern France; Nov. 11.���������A considerable concentration of German forces was noticed  on Thursday afternoon in front of the British  trenches south of Ypres. About this time a heavy'  rain began to fall and continued to come down in  torrents as night approached. The British troops  knowing that the massing of the enemy's troops  was progressing, were keenly alert. X  Behind a thin line of trees a short distance  in the rear there was a silent. gathering of niimy  hundreds of almost invisible figures moving: witbT  a lithe tread-   No word wasuttered, ordersBebra^  ing to pass down the lines as whispers borne on  the wind. ,  By degrees a wore or so of these hazy figures  detached themselves from the main body and  moved stealthily up to and beyond the advanced  line of the British trenches. Word was passed  along under the breath of the men: "The Indians  are going; out.". .X X-        vfv  The ghostly outposts; crawled noiselessly ^b  the first German trench; and vfor five minutes  there was perfect quiet, then a few shots, follbWr  ed immediately afterwards Va wild splutter ���������of;  musketry intermingled with cries and groans.1  Three or four light balls :thrown in the air  revealed to the British troops a weird sight s)x  hundred yards away.. On their front was a mass  of wild, struggling men, everywhere was the  glean* of steelahd a dizzy whirl of rifle butts.":  It was the Pathans at their deadly w,ork. For  ten minutes they hacked and slew the half asleep  and wholly bewildered Germans,- who bad laid  down in serried ranks to await the order for a  night assault on the British trenches-  The score of Pathans ..who went out in^advance slew the German pickets quietly and easily  ���������which is the Pathan way. The main body was  thus enabled to get in the very mi^st'of the sleep-,  ing foe unchallenged.'^he slaughter was terrible, and only ended \yhen the surviving Germans,  who were in great force, became thoroughly  aroused and ran blindly to the rear.  Then their swarthy assailants came back  briskly and, as silently as they went out. They  might have been out for an evening's stroll.  Their Josses were practically nothing.  The Germans, of course,- were furious���������which  is the German way. For hours their guns poured  a rain of shrapnel into the British trenches in  the hope of securing a meed of revenge. But  this did not dispel the contented smile from the  British soldier's face. As for the Pathans they  had hurried off to bed. >  THEN PREPARE FOR A MIRACLE.  MANY RUSSIAN WOMEN IN  THE FIRING LINE.  Don Male Attire and Fight well���������One Woman  Wounded Three Times.  London.���������The Petrograd correspondent of The  Morning Post .says:  '' The number of women coming back wounded  from the Russian front proves that the contingent  .of adventurous females on the fighting lines is  considerable. These women as a general rule cut  their hair, assume a soldier's uniform and get  secretly, with the connivance'-; of 'friends. air*>rig  the soldiers.

(London (Ont.)  "Advertiser").       X  XWhile many have lost hope that the defeat  of'the German Emperor will come from the people  over'whom he rules, there are observers to be  found who are still waiting for the moment when  Socialism will declare itself over Kaiserism. It  has been shown definitely through the suspension  of the " Vorwaerts", the German Socialist official  organ, that there is a strong antiwar .section in  Germany, and as most of the voters who form the  Socialist majority are to be found in the Kaiser's  army, there remains a possibility tbat the stage  is setting for.asudden eruption of Teutonic sanity. The flowing well of wisdom has been corked  by the War Lord, but-the internal force may be-  gathering. A properly-arranged explosion would  blow Wilhelm to St. Helena and Kruppism would  be hurled so high it would never come down.  Surely to-day there are men left in Germany  of the type of Ferdiand August Bebel, probably  the foremost Social Democrat of his time. He  was promient for years in the labor movement and  entered the North German Diet in 1867 and the  Reichtag in 1871. In 1902 he led 82 Socialists in  the Reichstag. Several times he was imprisoned,  once, in 1903, for high treason, and he has frequently felt the force of the Mailed Fist in other  ways. His voice was never silenced and his  following has numbered in the millions. Always  against war and German aggression by the rule  of "blood and iron" he foresaw that sooner or  later the Kaiser; would plunge his country into  mad attempt for world supremacy. He also recognized that Socialists would be forced into fighting  against their will. This and ihe rest of his prophecy follows:  When,Germany goes to war'there will be whole  armies of our adherents in the fighting raAks. As  long as all goes well and victory crowns pur banners they can do little but let themselves be swept  along on the triumphant flood.' But once let the  impression take root that Hozerizollern prestige  has lost its magic���������once let the'War Lord's pride  be greatly hiimblepTby a genuine disaster to his  arms���������then prepare for a miracle!  FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM OF THE  UNITED STATES IN OPERATION.  Washington, D. C, Nov. 16.���������After months of  work on the federal reserve board and preparation by the banks which will be members of the  new system, the twelve federal reserve banks'  opened their doors to business today. Their entrance into the field of re-discount will mark the  first great change in the banking system of this  country in the last 50 years, since the national  embank was conceived.and called into being after  the civil war. X  The twelve banks, designed to take care of  the commercial needs, of the entire nation are  located in the following cities: Boston, New York  Philadelphia, Richmond, Atlanta^ Cleveland, Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Karisas City, Pallas  and San Francisco.  For the present the operations of the banks  will be limited largely to the rediscounting of  .notes, drafts and bills of exchange but as expe-  . nence is gained, steps to have them excercise  their other functions under the currency act, will  be taken.' The directors of all the banks have  been selected, the board has named its representative for each and suitable quarters have been se-'  cured in all the twelve cities.  Officials here will watch the progress of the  system with the utmost interest. , It starts on its  , mission with 7571 member banks. Their authorized capital is put at $105,795,600, of wbich one  sixth has been, called and is in their vaults. The  evact figures for the cash reserves in all 12  -Bank������:has^-not.= V^beenV accurately computed-'  but the estimate puts the amount at close to $250,-  000,000, dravm under the law from the present  reserve agents of member banks.  The reserve banks begin operations at a time  when members of the board feel that there is an  excellent opportunity to test out the value of the _  system. Their ability to rediscout paper is counted  upon as one of the means to loosen the purse  strings of" the banks, provide machinery for  caring for crops and generally meet business  needs. X .

In  the vice-like grip of the powerful tentacles of the  octopus, the diver, handicapped to a great extent,  but at the sahle time protected by the heavy diving  suit and equipment, swayed about on the sea bed  ���������as he fought what at first appeared to be an unequal battle with the many-limbed creature of the  sea.

Ottawa.-XTheJ British War Office is likely tp_.  place huge orders in Canada for leather goods  equipment. A delegation of sixty of the leading  tanners of Canada was called in consultation  by Sir George'Foster, minister of trade and commerce yesterday, and asked if, in the event of  sudh orders being received, they Would be able to  supply the leather. Sir George was assured that  the capacity of the Canadian factories is fully  equal to any demand that may be made on them.,  Although Sir George did not specify any particular order, it is understood that the existing  requirements of the British War Office already  placed in Canada are to be materially increased;/  We trust that in this, as in'all other contracts;  the West will not be forgotten,.   The West is,  after all, the great producer, and must be recog-T  nised in. the distribution of orders at a critical^  period such as this.   The charge is heing openly,]  made that Eastern manufacture     who have been-  able, by pbliticial influence, to obtain contracts'  altogether beyond their power to supply have,  passed such portions over to -manufacturers in/  the United States rather than let them come to  the West.   We do not believe    these   changes;v  The proving of their truth would start a western"  revolt that would be dangerous.   In fact such-a  procedure would be little less than treasonable,  and a type of treason of the most contemptible  ���������quality.1-  There need be no fear that every available  hand in Canada, East and West, skilled in the  manufacture of supplies needed by the Allied  Armies will have full employment, and care ought  to be zealously taken by those in authority thai  jealousies prone to arise between East and West  are not needlessly increased.

The other morning, up  Vahead of the lark, he volplaned  from aheight like a falling arrow  right into the midst of the Ger-  tman lines as if he   intended   to  settle among them and at least  make a brief   morning   call   for  breakfast. .  ..The Germans were too astonished  for amoment to .do anything but  \gasp and gape at him.

Of course if the General absolutely refused, then ���������  '' By all means go, if you are so  keen on it," replied the General.  So off he went and the General  and his staff watched the show  from the headquarters of the Brit-  ish division.  Young Officer Excels.  This! particular afternoon the  young officer excelled himself. An  extremely well screened German  battery was doing nasty work  from behind a slight rise at the  beck of the German trenches. This  was the airman's quarry. Up and  up he went in quick climbing spirals, and when he was at a height  of 2,000vfeet, he poised for a spell  to spot the lurking place of the  battery. His first signal was for  the gunners to. plant their shells  immediately below him; They  fired X  The-shells fell some distant to  the right,and did no more damage  thai* to dismantle further an already dismantled camp. The airman's next signal was to tell the  rangefiriders to swing their guns  more to the left. Again it was too  far. VAgain he signalled and this  thine the first of the shells wrecked  the,limber of the foremost Prussian gun, smashing up horses and  men alike. .V  InstantlyVithe airman indicated  that the rahge had been found at  last, ahd then shells burst     over  been flogging the Allies so mercilessly early in the day.  In five minutes all; that were  left of the battery crew Xoroke  away from the cunning screen and  fled across the country.  The General, who had been  watching this with tremendous interest, through his field glasses,;  clapped his hands. \  '^Splendid, magnificent," he  cried. "The best show I have ever  withnessed. That man must have  a heart of steel in a body of iron. "  The General congratulated the  laughing officer when ha- came  down to.Mother Earth once more,  tired out, but still jubilant. He  congratulate'd him and shook his  hand.   .  "You're almost too good to  last" he said, and the airman only  laughed.  and before tea time, he was up land among the battery, which had  Paris, Nov. ll.:���������The Intransige-  ant prints ah account af an air duel from the lips of a wounded artillery man.   He "says:        ,        ,  "My battery was crossing an  open plain when the humming of  an aeroplane motor, like the noise  of .[&. huge fly, Was heard above.  Instantly everyone stiffened and  was silent.   Someone whispered:  vi recognize the Boche motor.  Jt js certainly a German biplane.''  "All crouched hear the ground  for the purpose of remaining unnoticed.  " Suddenly another aeroplane  appears.    V,. ..,..'.  "That's !aFrehch mono"- whispered my Well-informed comrade.  We can see the tri-color emblem.  " They are gaing to fight. Both  mount. Suddenly the rattle of a  quick firer bursts from the German. The monoplane dives sharp  ly sideways.        ,.  "My God, she-shit! cries, anrtff-  ficer near me. X        -  "No, it was only a manoeuvre.  The Frenchman .dodging the fusli-  ade, mounts to deliver a broadside.  His big adversary 'seeks vainly to  escape. The more agile monoplane  outmanoeuvres him, diving under  and delivers a broadside.  "The enemy veers upWard as if  trying to escape, but dense smoke  sprouts from the steel carcass. He  dips downward and then slides in  a.long volplane toward a neigbo-  rihg clover field.  "We run toward him cheering,  but the biplane clears the clover  field and seems abouth to rise  again. Then it pitches headfirst  into the swamp beyond. Flames  shoot from the wreck. We find  the occupants a captain and sapper, 'both burned and mangled.  Amid cheers the victorious mono-  pftne, the pilot of which is a well-  known airman, now a sergeant,  disappears."  German Airmen Killed.  London, Nov. 11.'���������Iii battles a  mile and a half in the air, three of  the leading German aviators  havebeen killed, according to  the latest casualty list published  iri Berlin.

Paris, Nov. 11.���������The story of  an exciting incident that took  place near an important bridge  over the Oise, not far from Semp-  igny, has been received here.   -,'  The French were ordered -to  hold the bridge at any cost. They  placed quick-firers, which played  havoc for twenty minutes in the  German ranks and prevented the  German advance. Suddenly the  bugle sounded for a French retreat and the Germans quickly  pursued them ave "the bridge. A  moment later a French aviator,  who had been hovering overhead  drops a bomb on the bridge, effectually destroying same and putting  a large number of the Germans  hors de combat. The French im-  medifltly charge upon the remaining Germans and capture all ahat  remain alive. -Quickly a pontoon  bridge is thrown across the river  and the positions from which they  had been driven are reoccupied.
