The retribution has been s^ift. His action is acknowledgment by him ot the utter defeat o� the powers of might in which, for more than four years, he has reposed his confidence. " Little more could be asked by the allies than has already taken place in Germany. It ie true that we would all like to see the allied armies storm their way to Berlin, and there dictate peace, hut even six months ago the alJdication of the Kaiser was looked upon as a wild hope, almost impossible ot accomplishment. Now it has been accoinpUahed and thus has Germany admitted her utter defeat. On July ISth, 'the Kaiser's armies were at the crest of ' a triumphant wave wliich had pushed the allies back wltSun Bo.mlle? of Paris and "left the British little room for manoeuvye between the battle front and the English OhaimeL ^en came the stroke that showed the wisdom of the action, of the allied governments in pjaciuK supreme army command In the hands of: one,4969;^ and .that nun Marshal jFpch, thev-great French strategician.

The fimeral was held the next day, the Rev. Thos. Phllps conducting tho interment" service. This sad news^ade a profound impression upon the community from the 'fact that the infant daughter Of Mr. and iU-s.
