KITCHENER DEAD; HIS PURPOSE LIVES When first the announcement was made that Kitchener had found a feeling peo- ple -at the moment is not difficult to describe. It was'such an awful shock that all were The first thought with many no doubt was "Can we re- cover from this It was a heavy blow, following as it did the great loss i of shins and sailors in the naval bat-, tie and amongst the But the feeling of de- spair lasted '.'but a moment. True, Kitchener wWour mainstay. We re- lied on him. We trusted him. What-, ever he did was right. So great was he in bur minds that he could not make a mistake. These thoughts crossed our minds and then, when we recovered from the shock, we gripped ourselves and, like .true Britons courage, determination and new faith possessed us. Great men had fallen before and great men had risen to take their places. A nation dependent upon one man could not survive. Britain Is not such a nation. Kitche- jier was simply the man power and force'and knowledge upcu whom all our faith had centered. "The King is dead; long live the King." Another Kitchener will arise to take the place of the Kitchener who gone. The British army has many great minds and leaders at its head. Sir Wm. i Robertson is one. He only needs a place in the forefront to prove that: Great Britain's campaign is not de-: pendent upon one man. Kitchener was a great soldier. He! was a man with an iron will, and men would follow him anywhere. He wield- ed a great power. He never failed to meet the demands of the millions who placed all their faith in him. In Egypt, in South Africa, in India, and In the present war, he was worshipped by the race. The faith the people had in. Kitchener was inspired wholly by Kitchener's career. He had never failed to meet expectations; fearlessly and resolutely he had led British forces In all sections of the world, and never once did he disappoint Britain or the Empire. Indeed, he is a great loss to the Empire and to the Allies, but a man will take his plac6 and pro- secute the war to a successful conclu- sion. Kitchener met death on active ser- vice. He would not have asked for any other fate. Active service had been his career for a lifetime. Un- doubtedly- had not the nation willed otherwise, he would have chosen ser- vice on the field rather than the war1 secretaryship. It so happens that he is a war vicf.ira; he meets death in his country's service. Kitchener's death will further stim- ulate the resolution of the British people. Men will, rush to the; colors 4 to avenge his fate. Soldiers in the field and sailors on the sea will fight I The Raymond Leader advises the 1 farmers to take out hail insurance.

Allies, Gcrniany will not raise a finger to save from starvation those Belgian wonicn and children in the territory she has overrun. She permits the Belgian Relief Commission to feed them, but her attitude is indicated by the recent torpedoing of two relief ships. Their cargoes were fully insured, of course, as are all shipments made by.tne Commission, so no contributions were lost. Bat much anxiety is felt lest even the delay in getting food over may cost precious lives. For all Belgium is dangerously short of food. Nearly three millions-arc penniless as the number of these is growrag last as accumulated savings arc exhausted. This means continually growing demands on the Belgian Relict Fund.
