ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR 1 One of the great objectives of the big Russian campaign in Asia Minor .has been accomplished. The Russians I Jiare linked hands with the British forces in Mesopotamia, and have thus aided in turning defeat into victory. A small force of cavalry have bridged the gulf between the Russians and the British forces operating near Kut-EI- Anaara, and It is not expected to he before the surrender of Town abend's force is avenged and th driven out.

Without the posses Bion of Deadman's Hill and the hill that surround it, any attempt to read Verdun must end in failure. Th' French have more than succeeded fn defending these hills, and the Ger mans are now farther away than eve from their objective.

The roads.- from Quebec to San Joaciim and from Lbtbiniere to total of 60 miles, are built The road from San Joachim to Murray Bay'VaY graded In 1911-12. It has been decay- ing ever since. It has to be repaired and Tegraded, and the steel laJd on it This will cost .from one to thrSe millions, according to whether you favor the deal or not The govern- ment has; to pay that The Toronto Telegram, not a Ub- eral paper, puts the deal this way: "To. put the thing straight, and not try to. turn corners, .the government committed itselrio an expenditure of i cash, bonds and, say, for the purpose of com- pleting the road, providing rolllug stock, etc. Remember, this is war time. Remember that Sir Thomas White spent weeks preparing a tax on business known as a war tax. Hell take months In collecting it; He ex- pects to raise by it .The government spent nearly two-fifths of that tas without even having to divide the house. What did they get for it? Anything that will help us to win the war? Anything that will take com- forts to our boys at the front? Any- thing that wiU help to bring our wounded home from the front in some- thing better than the steerage? ''Oh, no, nothing like that. Our alleged statesmen have minds above such trifles. What they really did buy with the nine millions o? Sir Thomas White's war tax was a hun- dred and twenty miles of debt-ridden, hon-paylng railway. The fact that they already, had a few thousand miles tof the Buqe kind of railway more than they could use, mattered not. A few Quebec politicians had aome fag ends of railways that had been milked till they refused to give more milk, [promoted till they refused to yield farther rake-offs.

It was exemplified in Mie splendid teaching of our schools, ably in such large centres as Toronto Halifax, Quebec, Hamilton. This Imperial spirit was'seen in the vritiiigs of our great men whose pro- 'hetic utterances found great favor, 'he air was vibrant with the electric hrill of the Queen's Jubilee.' The Jnited Empire Loyalists took on fresh ife. The League of Empire was so mpressed with the importance of a ruer knowledge of the llag as the ein- tern of a great empire, that it made great efforts .to have impressed upon child mind the great underlying, rinciples of our national life, while le Canadian Club was an active loyal iwer. f In June 1396 our Empire Day was orii.

The Canadian Spirit The knowledge that some fortunate unit has come into actual grips with the foe permeates all ranks. Alertness is stimulated. The dull routine of daily duties becomes more bearable. Bombardments .lose their terrors and dreary hours in the front line are en- livened by eager expectation.
