He is STRANGE CASE OF to do to help win tills war. Is it not i more likely that their boastfulness Is the result of their deadly earnestness to get into the fray in time, than any desire to belittle the efforts ot the Allies?

There Is no change on the western front, sav� that enemy artillery is becoming increasingly active at certain points. TAKING HOr�1E TO THE BOYS.

This feeling '\& by no means confined to the men Of Irish birth or origin. It is an almost universal precipitation of our ^trong national conviction that "con-i(Bnt,of the govenied' Is the only true oasis ot government, and that local ielf-government \l3 the sovereign ijiu-e of local grievance. But, having said that. It is vitally necessary at this time that American public opinion should have the courage and c!�r!tr St Tiaion to assure Mr. Lloyd George, his cabinet and his parliament that it stands squarely behind '/ l)lm and theai in the firm belief that there is no conceivable adequate �eiousQ for any people who profess to love liberty and fight oppression to stand aside in indiference when the united democracies of the world ..are in the death grip ot a still un-�declded battle with the only dospot-i'pm on earth which is possibly strong anough to-day to trample our free dpm among mankind. "NVe are all fighting aa never beforo lor the good American gospel, "government of the aeople, for the people, by the people shall not perish from the earth"; and it is nothing but the plain truth that vve Americans will never understand t{ie conduct of any nation which per-luanently withholds its hand from thjB struggle simply^ because Its demand fqr a lesser local government Ot Ub own people, by Its own people, for Jts own people, }s delayed or avan apparenyy denied. .WHAT AMERICAN I^ELF MEANS.  : We haver-it now from the mill tary /ijpert in.the Berlin Voasischo Zeitung, (Jjat German nerves are breaking, �while oh the pthor hand we see that   the French and Uritisili are still stoiit ,ot heart, They are fighting heroically, I . thrtce-urmed with the conviction In -i^yery Boldiors' bea.rt and every al-)l�d mlud tliat their cause is just, ad that fact may well turn out to � So many '. proYest's are pouring in to Ottawa urging, that practisal, hard-working young farmers be not taken off the farnis, that it would appear ^vise for the Government to provide some relief.
