Germany, by getting its false reports to the pub- lic first, more or less prejudiced the opinion of the'world. Since then it lias been forced to admit greater losses and the comparisons which can following the North Sea naval engage- ment hit off the result admirably.

From a sentimental stand- point, however, his loss is the great- jest blow the Empire has yet Many people are asking why the flag at the Mounted Police barracks has not been flying at half mast for Kitchener. The fact Is that it is not the military rule to fly the flag over military, barracks at half mast when dies in action. The reason for this is that the authorities do not wish to east a gloom over the soldiers. Keep the old flag up and keep up the ipirita of the soldiers.
