ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The story of a renegade Briton Whose expedition against Britain ended in ipiomy and laadcd him lii the Tower of London, Is told In the escapades of Sir Roger Casemeat and his capture by a British patrol while head-loE an expedition of Germans. The idea was to land arms in England, but a British patrol put a quick stop to tho proceedings. The attention of Britons has been focussed for the past tew days upon th'a trouble In Dublin, eridenily fomented by Germans, in which rebels hate taken control of imtKirt&ut buildings and stations. U has been neces-eary as a result of this rebellion to place all Ireland under martial law. French positions around Verdun %vere again heavily bombarded by tht Uermans. but no Infantry attacks make. Several German patrols were dispersed and a German airship brought down. A British anbmarlne was sunk by German nara/ forces. The Germans liaYB sunk a Norwegian vessel, ijart ot the crew being drowned. The Herald wishes Lteut.-Cal. Bryan and the people of Maclood the best ot luck In their undertaking to raise the �191st BattaUon. We believe ,they can jdo the job to perfection. Someone promised several weeks ago that the LethbrUIge-Weyburn Una would be completed this year. News that tho grading contract had been let would be welcome. The Germans made a fool out of Sir Roger Casement and now he Is likely to be shot by the British for being a traitor. The Huns squeezed him dry and won't oven weep a tear for him. That is the usual ending of traitors. Thos. Hensiiian, an old resident ot Cobourg. died suddenly. Kmniti Goldman, the anarchist, wna sent to a workhouse tor 15 days tor a Now York lecture on birth control. Hetty Green, the richest woman In tho world, Is seriously HI In New York. She Is In her 80th year. M". T. Shannon, manager ot tho ' Chatham branch of the Standard bank, ' died after an illness of one week. ^Vith^n a few months ot celebrating Ihor It'Oih lilrthdny, Mrs. Jano Horiser d'cd at tho home ot hor daughter in Toronto. I J. O. Turceon, Mboral representativo for Ulbstone. Alta., has been gazetted a lieu'ennnt in the 233rd French Canadian battalion. U. S. Slate department otnctals will make representations to Great Britain to Insure the safe arrival In tlie United States ot 15,000 tons ot dyestutfs ! from Germany. Purchase ot the Canadian Car and Foundry company plant, which is sit-l"ted in Fort William, and Its trans-1 ;r to Russia, Is sought by representatives of the Russian government. Yov Can cnro that old sore or ulcor from which you hnva been suffering foi 80 long, It you will only use an ointment that Is capable of reaching tho seat of the trouble. ZaraBiik can do this because of Us nnusual penetrating power. Also. Zam-Buk 1b n strong Rormlclde-germs cannot live where Zam-Buk Is applied, so that the germs are destroyed not only on the surface, but In all the diseased underlying tissue. Then healing commences; new tissue replacing the old and diaenaad, until the sore Is thoroughly and permanently cured. The case of Miss Francos Daudln, ot Somerset, .Man., verities the above Btatemont. She writes: "I suffered for over twenty years with an ulcor on my log, and all the remedies tried during that titno proved Ineffective. Several doctors treated me, but I got no benefit. Finally I tried Zam-Buk, and 1 am thankful to say that after with thi? ointment 1 am now completely cured." Zam-Buk Is also splendid for eczema, abscesses, bolls, pimples, ringworm, piles, biood-polsoning, cuts, burns, and all skin Injuries and diseases. Best balm for baby's sores. All druggists, 50c. box, 3 for $1.35. or from Zam-Buk Co.,Toronto. The dash of the German squadron on Yarmouth and Lowestoft is believed by many iiavni critics to be a feeler forecasting an early dash by the whole German navy. AVell. "Jacky" won't object. THE GERMAN ANSWER; WHAT IS IT? Today the German answer will be ready. It should be released for publication In American papers Sunday. What will It be? We don't know, but we can make b pretty good guess. It will be an-oUier bluff. Hedged promises will be made which djat appear satisfactory on the surface. It will be an attempt to pacify U. 3. and still leave the way open for a continuation of the submarine frightfulness campaign. The Germans during the past week since the delivery ot the U. 3. ultimatum have manifested a rather incongruous desire to appease Uncle Sam. They have shed many crocodile tears. The note will be a mixture of emotions. It will be an endeavor to fool Uncle Earn once more. Will Uncle Sam be fooled or will ha say with Marse Henry Watterson "To Heli With the HohenioUems." ALBERTA'S PROUD RECRUITING RECORD Since August 1914, Albena has raised almost 30,(H)0 troops tor the Empire. Alberta is the first and only province in Canada to raise her full quota of the 500,000 men asked fbr by the Dominion authorities. She has not stopped at that. She has already raised 2600 more than her quota. And still she does not stop. By the time battalions and other units now authorized are filled she will have raised 3S,000 men. And she will not stop then nn-lesB the authorities say "Stop." That is a proud record for the youngest province ot the Dominion. We have set the mark at which all others must aim. And we do not believe we are more loyal than other provinces. We believe they will equal Alberta's record. Nor can we say that, with 30,000 men under arms, we are suffering from depression. In fact we believe there has never been a time when the province has been so prosperous as it Is today. Our present prosperity is founded on a solid basis -production. We can continue to produce heavily even with 35,0!�0 men under arms. This should be a good talking point in other provinces �where recruiting Is inclined to be Blower. We have raised our 30,000 men without drawing very heavily on the farming population. That is the ideal situation. Telegrams by the thousands are pouring into Senators and Representatives In Washington urging U. S. to remain at peace with Germany. ^Ve Imagine Von Bernstorff will have some rather heavy telegraphic tolls to pay this month. The Medicine Hat Times has ceased publication as a dally and will appear henceforward as a weekly. Anyone who holds the opinion that the daily newspapers are making a barrel of money these days is badly mistaken. Old established newspapers are doing their best to give their readers the news of the world as It happens, but are working under great handicaps in doing so. GROWING SCARCITY OF MEAT IN BERLIN London, .\prll 27.-The Vorwaerts of Berlla is quoted in a Renter dispatch from Amsterdam as saying the most significant development in the Easter holidays for the people in Berlin was the steadily growing scarcity of meat. Housewives rushed from shop to shop. Vorwaerts says, in ordfir to obtain at least a piece ot meat. Those who were able to buy porta, which Is sold by the manufacturer at a relatively cheap price, went home happy, but there was dissatisfaction on the part ot those who were compelled to purchase the meats which sells for three marks a pound and also among those who went home empty handed. ! DELEGATES DECIDE TO FORM A TEACHERS' ALLIANCE Edmonton, April 26..Ierrittoii. Ont., struck a chimney on the house of Pte. H. J. Christie, of the 176th battalion, entering an upstairs window where his two children lay sleeping. It burned the hair off the little girl's head but caused the child no other harm. The stove pipe was knocked down and the lightning, descending to the room below, struck Christie, burning his hip, but not seriously. It Is said at London that tho manufacture of the high explosive known as tri-nltrotoluol Is seriously affecting the health of thousands of munition workers. It causes unusual drowsiness, frontal headache, eczema and loss ot appetite, and sometimes jaun-I dice, according to a committee which j has been devoting much study to the �health of the munition workers. In a few cases even death has resulted. At least $10,000 will have to be expended by the city ot Winnipeg to repair damage done by the spring flood. Frederick Oliva has filed suit In the superior court against Dr. Hugh H. Stevenson, a dentist ot San Francisco, alleging that .Stevenson caused him to lose his singing voice and damaged him to the extent of $5750. Oliva says Stcven.son used a strong chemical which caused the bones ot the jaw to decay and which damaged his vocal organs. HUNS SAY THEY WERE NOT HURT BY BRITISH ATTACK IN FLANDERS Berlin, via London, -^prll 2G.-An ofliclal account of the naval attack on ; the coast ot Flanders on Sunday was issued here today. It reads: "The admit a! ty reports that on the raoriiiiig oC .April 24 numerous enemy forces appeared off the coast of Flanders. They were composed of monitors, torpedo boat destroyers and great and small steamers, which apparently were searching for mines and outlying buoys for bombardment. "Three ot our torpedo boats stationed off Flanders repeatedly attacked the monitors, destroyers and auxlllar-,ies, pressed them back and prevented j them from proceeding with their work. ' "Despite a heavy counter-attack our torpedo boats were not damaged and the British naval forces left the coast of Flanders."

EDWARD FARRER DEAD Ottawa, .\pril 27.-Edward Fairer, one of Canada's most distinguished journalists, died hero today of heart rii.cease. Mr. Farrer was bom in England of Irish parentace and came to Canada in 1870, joining the editorial staff of the old Daily Telegraph, of Toronto. Subsequently he became connected with different publications in United States and Canada. .Mr. Farrer was Cti years old.

IRISH REBELS A MISGUIDED FEW While all the news from Ireland has been carefully censored and the exact state ot affairs there la therefore unknown, it Is safe to assume from what dispatches we have that the trouble is caused by a few misguided "patriots" �who believe the time has come to strike for a free Ireland, meaning an Ireland free from rule by the parliament at AVestmlnster. That the mass of Irish people are behind the silly attempts of this mistaken few is far from being the case. The words ot Sir B4ward Carson and John itedmond -TWO noted opponents on the Homo Rule question-In the house Is proof that the Irish people as a whole ere Halted UeUlnd the tUe atrug.

Mr. Daclos of filmonlon, to the synod meeting this afternoon. Me went thoroughly into the needs of the nesleetod north and touched on the bilineual (luostlon deaing wlUi it from the time ot tho Huguenots, and traced religious history right to the present time. N'ot all the French were of the Itoman church and he felt that the burden 'of caring for those of the Protestant faith should be shouldered by the Presbyterians. Rev. A. C. Wryan, ot Tabor, propounded some very searching questions as to why tho church was not i more successful in attracting people today. Mr.-Aryan took his text from Acts 9-31, "The church, being edified multiplied." Dealing briefly with the tact that the early church multiplied 'at a very rapid rate, Mr. Bryan asked why it was that today in many parts of Christendom, dspite the Impetus j from the past, the existence of all !�inds of twentieth century machinery ' and greater facility tor the extension of her cause, the Christian church was giving ground or barely holding her own. Why were so few uniting with the church from year to year? Why were people so Indifferent to tho claims of home and foreign missions, and still more indifferent to the si)ir- ; itual needs of the foreigners at our doors? Why was It that cliildron who grew up In the .S.unday schools drifted out of the church? Why was it that the adherents ot churches far out- I numbered the inemberu? Why was it, in a country which was being rapidly Bellied, there were not bumper harvests each year iiiblcad of beggorly Ingatherings? Wero they content to stand on tho defenslvo or even coni-promiso with the foe? Was the fault with the ministers? Had they lost Mie!r grip on spiritual things? Wore thny lying down on the job? How is It that our Christian coinage has bo-come HO debased and disfigured that : we cannot tell whether it bears tho image of Christ, or ot Caesar or ot ; Mammon? j These and many other heart soarch. ing (luestions gave rlso- to u general ; discussion.
