Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 1, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta German Fleet Withdraw- ing Warships from Kiel for That Purpose. BALTIC SQUADRON IS STRENGTHENED Copenhagen, Dec. Ger- man 11'et is becoming more lively in the Baltic. Scandinavian and Russian dispatches Indicate pre- parations for striking a blow at Russian forts, for even entering the Gulf of Finland, and possibly for the bombardment of Pctro- grad. It Is reported here from several sources that there is a great con- centration of. the fleet and Ger- man transport steamers along the Baltic coast, and the withdrawing of warships from Kiel to strength- en the Baltic squadron operating northwards in the Gulf of Both- nia. ALDERSON'S PRAISE FOR London, Deo. to; the toast of "The Imperial Forces" at the anniversary dinner of the Royal Scottish Corps last nlghl, General Alilcrson made a pleasing reference to iho Canadians now under his command. Ho had charge, ho said, of the 1st and 2nd Canadian Rifles and Stralhcona In South Africa, and lie there learned to respect both as men and as .fight- ers. "I can tell he added, "that Iho men now on Salisbury Plain from Canada are the same sort of luon. They are men of such [ihysliiuo that if yon were to put them In guardsmen's clothes and march llioin through London, you would say, 'What splendid guardsmen they are.' (Cheers.) More than thai, they have the most splendid spirit 1 have known In my "7 years of I can assure yon that when. our time comt'G to so across the water, and let us hope It will be soon, the men 1 have tho honor to com- mand, will do their duty just as well as the rest of the forces of the Empire are doing." 0------ Naval Bulldogs Await [Germans in the Atlantic c, R I" D-c 1 flee' o' Br is pa trolling the territory between Nova bcotia and a point just iouln 01 New This lleet consists of four large warships, either, battleships or battle cruis- ers and three torpedo boat de- stroyers. This news was brought into iwrt yesterday when, the steamer Ma- donna of the Fabre line came to the city. The steamer was-in close touch with the fleet just before she picked- up tlie Nantucket Shoals, lightship on Sunday. Wireless communication was held with the Warships and Cap- tain La Batut was informed that a fleet oi 13 British warships had passed south to Buenos Ayres within a few days. Russians Check German Reinforcements in Po- land and Left Being Rolled IV r-cirbgrad, Dec. 1. The Germans in Poland are, lighting desperately under adverse conditions, according; to thc Army Gazette issued by the j stan. German' rc-inforeemfhtB, which 1 were discovered-to-be inarching .up from Wicluli, have been defeated. The German right therefore is without the support which they were expect- ed to bring, and their Hank is ex- posed. The disadvantage is not entirely countered by the fact that the tier- mans have erected extremely strong, fortifications. Their trenches arc. consiructed by .machinery of the' steam plough order, and are very perfectly adapted for defence in every respect. Moreover, the Hermans ap- pear to be getting reinforcements up to the main front, which has doubt- less encouraged their attempt at a diversion from the centre of an at- tack along the .Vistula, which Russians repulsed.

It happened this way: A Ger- man spy was recently captured in Dunkirk. He was dressed as a woman, but the slue of his feet betrayed him, ami he was cap- tured. Then, every one in Dun- kirk be.ean etching feet. The wife of the French general sallied forth and her feet attracted the attention of a soldier who arrest- ed her. Now even those who had not looked before the spy scare struck Dunkirk know she has big feet.
