In Serbia, the French and British have gained a victory in the south, but the 'Serbian army is in greater dan- ger thn" ever. The Bulgarians are sweeping Into Monastir, and the pop- ulation is fleeing. The Serbs have Abandoned the Babuna Pass, and Prilepe is also threatened. The Rome correspondent of the London Chronicle writes in a very Frank way of what he terms a league of Balkan kings formed by the Kaiser early In the war, and points out the manner in which King Con- itantine, by gradually'gaining control the government of his country, is apparently playing into the Kaiser's hands. The correspondent has little faith in Greek promises to the Allies. .JOn the west front heavy cannonad- ing; IB still proceeding. In answer to questions in the House of Lords, Lord Landsdowne has stat- ed that official reports from the par- danelles were not considered sutii- cient to decide the government in a policy regarding withdrawal from that campaign, and Lord Kitchener has been asked to visit that. theatre ,_of war himself. A NAVAL SECRET REVEALED .Mr. E. Ashmead-Bartlett, who was eESiOfeUJBiaccredlted press represent- ntlves at the Dardanelles, has just published a remarkable article in the 'London Express descriptive. ot a re- volution which has taken place in tho character of the British fleet. When the operations at the Dardanelles itirted some of the mightiest super- Dnadnangbts in tlie British Navy took part. The entry of German sub- marines upon the scenes ultimately cawed the fleet to be withdrawn, how- mr, and Mr. Bartlett tells how the Turks on'the hills above "looked or. Haltingly."

But (hat is what Britain did. Soon strange craft, the like of .which was never seen before, Began to appear in eastern waters. One of them, an amazing object "waddled lato port, like a huge goose primed for Michaelmas. It was impossible-to tell: at a distance sue was broadside on, or showing her bows or her atern, for she seemed to be quite round." "Her high sides held aloft an abso- lutely flat deck, on which nothing except an enormous turret, from which projected two guns, of girth and length, while, rising from her like the giant of some Callfomian forest, .was a huge striped tripod, bearing aloft a kind of oblong ,'ewel-tol, the exact replica on a huso of .that in which the Dalai (jftrnVbHTv about with him the ashes >f his qnt embodiment.

A whole fleet of such vessels soou appeared, and they gayo tho old Turk "a horrid shock of surprise." for their great roaring guns could carry over a ton of metal fif- teen miles. This new fleet of moni- tors, contemptuous of submarines, and of deadly effectiveness, played an important part in tho fresh landing at Suvla Bay on 'August G, and have cov- ered tho infantry, and checked the at- lacks of the Turks on many occasions since. The Montreal Herald thinks that such a transformation in the fleet could be carried out In so short a time is marvellous, but, as Mr. Bartlett says. It gives a true Insight Into the.eitent of our maritime re- sources, and of the ability of the Bri- tish Navy to meet any new situation which may be suddenly thrust upon them.

Ottawa, November out- standing feature oi the war, so lar as the Borden Government is con- cerned is that.it has thrust greatness on Sir Sam Hughes. Hu-is the only Conservative politician who harvest- ed Knighthood out of it with the ex- ception of Sir Herbert Ames whose company made such good shoes for the soldiers that he simply, could not be overlooked. THE VALUE OF TRUTH Truth in business is just as important as truth irrevery-day life; truth creates tonfidence, establishes good-will and builds a reliability that will hot be wrecked by the storms of competition. Through three generations people have learned to place reliance on the advertised words of Scott's Emulsion, because they are aggerated truisms about a household remedy of real and actual The popularity of Scott's Emulsion is increasing as intelligence advances, because days of adulterations it continues to guarantee pure tori liver oil medicinally perfected wilh glycerine and hypophosphitM to im- prove the blood and strengthen the lungs, It is free from harmful wliole- food-tnntc, truthfully advertised. Meanwhile it dees not please his colleagues that all tlio glory should centre in the Minister of Militia and the Rogers prtss in Winnipeg and Montreal is or less free to ad- mit that there may bo other pebbles on the beach, not mentioning any names but looking straight' at the member for Winnipeg, who has not sought the public eye so much since the recent midsummer frost in Mani- toba. Other Conservative newspapers chrp up from time to time, acting as a GENERAL-HAMILTON'S SUCCESSOR IN THE DARDANELLES sort of skeleton at Sir Sam's (oast, reminding him lira whisper just louil enough lor Premier llorden ami tho rest of iho Band o! Hope to ovcr- jicar, that oven tho greatest must die. Whether Sir gam will die a political death, is tho course at nature, or a 'sudilbn ono before tlie general election, is a moot ques- tion. He is now as famous, not per- haps as Alexander tho Great, hut at least'as grandma's pancakes, ami it miglit be injudicious to drop him. So Sam shines on, and what Sara says anil what Sara does occupies spaco in the newspapers to the exclusion o! othor stars who have equal rights to the limelight. It is-oven worse than hogs the centre of the Borden herilly gets a look is as il the first walking gentleman should shove tlio lending man aside and take'his lines, a grave, perversion indeed of the customary practice. Hut don't imagine, for a minute that his colleagues arc jealous of Sir Sam. Not at all. They're-simply dazzlwl by his wonderful career. i Take that knighthood lor example. The sly things they say about it How our Minister of Militia was re- ceived coldly by Asquith and Kitch- ener who asked him to explain the Shell Committee. How British slates- men on both side's of politics pene- trated his pose and ter. How his Unionist Mentis experi- enced a chill towards him and tho newspapers forgot to mention his name. How finally, they gave him a knighthood as a sort of rebuttal evi- dence that could bo taken hack to Canada there. It is not the Liberals who ace sav- inz these things. It's his own Iriends whose sources of information are sup- posed to be better than those ol the Opposition. Sir Sam should pray night ami day to be delivered from j his ripping him1 up the back. Not even his knighthood is sacred from their rude jeers. Accord- jing'to one.story, Sir Sam went to tho King as' the only friend he had left in Kngland, and almost burned His Majesty's ear oil, so fast and hot dill ;the words come. He talked at such length that the game had to bo called on account pi darkness. "The shades of said His'Majesty, "are falling fast, so I make you a knight accordingly, liise Sir Sam. What, you must go Well lure's your hat Thus spake the king, tempering justice with mercy, at the same time getting rill of Sir Sam and saving his own dinner which was like to get cold whilu the iMaior- General waited. Oi-course such an account of the greatest historic event of the war is a pure invention but it only goes to show what emotions Sir Sam is Quality Clothes Ulster Talk .MODEL A346 Made for service, for fit, for style, for value, and for absolute satisfaction to wearer, what more does a man require.
