Some ot the rescued men told a correspondent that the- commander was A lad of 19, entirely Irresponsible, and utterly indifferent to the question whether he had a right to sing the vessels. To the indignant remonstrance of one skipper the boy pirate replied: "Oh, well, if we don't sink you, the British will take your ship away." To another protest that the luggers were well within the safety zone he replied: ."Can't help It; down she goes." One Sphevenlngen veteran remarkod: "What the boy. p!r�*�� need is a taste of the cat." ' �SWT HI8 STEP. '!Ji&*. he palUtedijret?' ; f'Not^s fyetfiJiH I! think ne'e going to.

According to this information bombs were dropped oh three different suburbs. In tho llrst tho bombardment caused no damage; in tho other two localities five or six bombs wore dropped, causing tho slight injury of two women. One of the women was struck while in bed and was removed to a hospital; tho other was injured by flying glass. One bomb of several that fell In a field is believed to have coutalned asphyxiating gas. Tho attempted raid Saturday was ovon more unsuccessful than that on Friday; for the German,aviators were not able to reach Paris at all. Their coming was anticipated and French protecting aeroplanes were above and circling around ParlB from early evening. The residents, however, did not look for a renewal of the fruitless attack of the previous night and most ot them had retired when the sirens gave the warning. 'Crowds rushed to the streets, roofs and windows instead of seeking shelter, but they saw nothing. Less than an hour after the first warning reassuring bugles announced that the enemy aviators had been turned back.

Comment was made that, wholly apart from war service, the greater olflciency resulting from the anti-waste propaganda would have a far-reaching influence. Aii Interesting discussion took placo as to whether the introduction of spirit ot saving into so many homes where no great attention was paid to such economies before would lead to any loss of that hospitality on which Cana-\ dians pride themselves. Opinions differed. Many told of instances they know of entertaining had given up the practise. Tho conclusion reached was that, as tho necessity for saving in the home became more widely appreciated, gueBts would not expect lavish entertainment. It was generally agreed that great progress in the education of the public had been made-in. recent times, by such campaign* as that of the National Service Board, although much remained to be done before the people could be depended upon to save and seryjk - ' -'� ' t; ;
