(Tho German subifiarlne IT t'-XP wa!) sunk in the North Sea in JIarch, iyi7.) The TT C-33 was commanded by Otto Ehrentraut, who was a close friend of Prince Henry ot Prussia and a frequent visitor to Prince Henry's castle at Kiel. Before Ehrentraut left Kiel in command of tho now mine-laying submarine 39, Prince Henry came to the iiior to wish the boat bon voyage. The submarine left its bn�p at midnight carrying several torpedoes and a largo quantity of gun aminunilion, but no mines, ns this was her first I trip and in the nature of a sliake-down I for the officers and men. All ot licrj personnel had soon service In o'.hci-j subniariiK'S. � The siibiiiarliie secured her I victim by sinking the Xorwegiau � .Ktenniship Ilansklnck (formerly the .Aniorican Satllla) the crew of whlcli csi^aped in boats.

The next morning the Norwegian steamship Ida was sighted, and although tho Ida stopped Immediately, Ehrentraut gave orders to continue tiring. When the German gun-liy'cr saw that the sliip hud slopped .-ind several direct hits had already been made, according to this account, ho asked if he should ceosa firing, and was told by tho commander to keep on. Twenty-five rounds in all wero tired, the last few at a range of less than 3000 yards. When the Germans final.'y ceased firing, one ot the Ida's boats came alongside and announced tliat two wounded men had been left aboard the vessel. Tho submarine commander sent a boat over ^nd found that both men were already dead, having been killed whilo lowering the boats. The Germans left tho bodies whero tliey lay and proceeded to sink tho ship *l}y bombs. Two hours later the 3fl opened fire on a steamer ami trawler, but on diving, lost them in the mist. About one p.m. the 3il came to the surface again and sighted a steamer on which she opened fire, but was answered^ almost Immediately by a salvo from a'Dritlsh destroyer. The 311 had evidently met a sterner ordor ot things and sho dived, but too late. A depth bomb struck her, causing a leak in the conning tower.

ON MICE ACT A mass meeting of tho rcr-.idonts of Twelve-Mile coulee district was held Sunday to discuss tho latest amendments lo the military service act as they affect farmers. On .Monday evening again a meeting was held ot the I'.F.A. local, wlion the following resolution was passed: Resolved: That (lie farmers of Twclve-MUe Coulee Local fr.F.A. No. 'li/J of tho Tj'nltcd Farmers of Alberta protest moat strongly against the attituflo of tho Dominion government in regard to their first calling upon the tarmcrs ot the western plains to produce, jirodiico, produce !o tlio last available acre and grain of wheat, and. for that imrposo releasing from militury service our young farmers; and then iinnitdiately turning around and wiiile wo ;iro yet in tho middle of seeding calling up all our young men aged 20 to 2;t, and others actually employed qn the farm in producing foodstuffs, lo report themselves. Ivven if the;- are released again for a time young men become so unsettled as to v.'hat their duty is, and as to wliat the country really wants, that their working efficiency is hurt. We are told almost in one breath that the Allies are starving for food, and lliat these men iiiii:-f leave the farm lo fight. They cannot be in two places at once; and it is ,difficult enough to hold high spirited young men ou the farms anyway. The government seems to want to tell them that it is their duty to be here and there too. Wo would like to know how the imposslhle can bo done. We respectfully request an Immediate decision in the mailer for many ot us aro. tliinking about putting stiil nioro acreage under cultivation, and we don't want to break the ground simply to grow weeds, for if our young men aro taken away, that is what must happen. We cannot substitute for these men with help as suggested by various departmonls, which have proven to a very great e.xteut to be Inefficient. m CROSS BORNED ON ARM Horrible Torture of Prisoner By Huns-Others Fare Even Worse Boston, -May 7.-Hearing the out-llno ot an Iron cross, wlilch was hurn-cd on his arm with an electric needle by Gorman officers In Africa, John Mitchell, a Zulu, ifonnerly a fireman ou a Brltlali aloamsiiip, captured by a German raider, tiild immigration oftlciala hero today a story ot torture.
