BURGESS The bravest may be nut to flight Dy .wholly unexpected fright. Habbit. Peter Rabbit went back to look for kis cousin. Jumper the Hare. He found him not far from great windfall under which they had been so sure Buster Bear'had spent the winter. Peter hastened to apologize to Jumper for having doubted him. "I've seen Buster Dear." said "and It is true that his coit is just as it al- ways has been, as black as black can be." And he told me that you were right about whero he spent the win- ter He said he hasn't been near the great windfall since early last fall. And he said, too, that he doesn't in- tend to comei near it. Why do you he doesn't intend to come near It, Jumper shook his head. "I Rive it tip." said he. "I haven't the least idea. There Is a mystery, a great mystery, about that windfall, and I don't like 'mysteries. Did Buster that be wss afraid to go near replied Peter. "No, he didn't say that. But now you of it, he acted as if be thought he would be better off if ha kept away. And he ad- vised me to keep away from it, too. He said I wonld be likely to lire long- er It 1 did. Now what io you suppose he meant by Again Jumper shook his head. he began. "What's He jumped and ran back few steps, then sat up to stare at the great windfall with startled Peter did exactly the same thing, There they sat staring at the great windfall.

For a few minutes they heard noth- ing. It was as Etill aa it can onlj' In the heart of the Green Forest when not even a leaf moves. They could hear beating of their own hearts. Then from the great windfall came a sound that there was no mistaking. It was deep, grumhly-nimbly growl, such a growl aa they had never beard from the throat of Buster Bear. H was a whine, and that whine was just such a whine as they sever had heard, save from the throat of Buster Bear. Tet they knew Buster Bear wasn't in there. They knew that Buster Bear was over near the pond "Did you whispered Jumper of Paddy the Beaver. Peter bad left him there only a little while before and hail como straight to this placs as fast us his legs could bring him, and that is rather fast. Truly, there was something wrong with that great -windfall. Buster Bear wasn't under it. yet Bear growls and whines were coming from it. Do you wonder that Peter and Jumper were sadly frightened and once more took to their long heels? But they didn't go far. They went only far enough to feel safe. Then they sat up to stare at that old windfall again. They were still frightened, very much frightened, but curiosity was greater than their fear at that distance. For a time all was still again. It was still for so long that they began to wonder if they could really have heard those growls and whines. If either had been alone would have been sure that imagination had play- ed him a trick. But both had heard the same sounds, or thought they had. So they stared and stared and waited. Suddenly there was a sharp snort, followed by a deep "Woof, from that great windfall.

The disorder began at tho congress of the Austrian anti-semitie associa- tion which has been in session here for several days. During the sitting late yesterday afternoon the congress, is being attended by delegates from aizty-two chapters of the organ- isation in Austria, and a few represen- tatives of Bavarian and Hungarian anti-Jewish societies, was addressed by speakers who urged radical meas- ures. They advocated pogroms, and tho organization of Christians m Aus- tria. While this meeting was going on, large crowds assembled in the Rathaus square .where similar addresses were made, speakers declaring that the Jews constituted a menace because of profligate living. Two Jewish stud- ents were found in a crowd and were beaten and driven away.- At dusk, the mealing broke up and a grelit crowd swept through the streets singing1 German songs and shouting "Away with the Jewsl'i Now and then the sound 01 broken glass told of a stone beint; thrown through a window. The crowd moved toward a Jewish quarter of the city, but large forces of police had'been summoned to bridges leading across the canal, over which the crowds must move to reach the Ghetto of Vienna. The rioters were turned back, but :here was more or less rowdyism and street fighting before the police, suc- ceeded in dispersing the mob.

March dis- patches from the Upper Sllesian zones fulled to reflect optimism with regard to the outcome of the balloting which will take place n week hence. Party politics and partisan differences have been submerged in a common deter- mination by the Germans to endeavor to save th.o wealthy industrial sector to Germany. A pilgrimage of eligible voters from all corners In Germany to Upper sll- esia now is in full motion. Several trains are being run. every day.

Gleiwti Katowitz, Kosel, Beu- then, Tarnowitz, Guttang and Gross- Strcilliltz, are also considered safe for the German column by overwhelming majorities.

British Empire Has Trouble Within and Without But Will Come Through OTTAWA, Mar. recogniz- ing the fact that such a crisis as at present exists had never before and might never again threaten the unity of the British Empire. Sir George er took an optimistic point of view in addressing an overflow meet- ing at the Army and Navy Veterans' concert here last night. Never, declared Sir George, had the devil's propaganda been so strong, so shrewd, BO imbued with anarchy and revolution as at present. The lid had been lifted from the door of hell, and the Imps loosed from had spread rebellion, pitting elan against clan, community against community, class against class and country against country, Many parts oj the British Empire were Egypt, In- dia and even England But England's troubles were not confined to the empire only. The war had'not ended when the kaiser abdicated, and the international alliances made dur- ing the course of (hi struggle were still necessitating expenditure of men and money in the effort to attain a lasting peace. Never had a nation contracted suet enormous financial obligations. Never had such gigantic sums been spent by any one nation during the same per- iod of. time as by England in the great war. But England would come through. There would come a day when the dark clouds of war would give place once more to the sun of happiness and prosperity. With impassioned oratory. Sir George counselled the thoughtful men and women of Canada to consider the problems of the empire, to think over the-tmrdens and responsibilities con- fronting England ami to-help solve I these questions by facing the questions with fair beads and broad minds. With the undivided support of Ca'nada, Eng- land would be able to bind the bonds of empire even more strongly than ever before. E. A. Fripp, M.P., referred to Sir George as an "empire builder" and an orator vrho had carried the name and fame of Canada into every part at the world through the medium of the League of Nations.
