The Germany army is 100 miles from Thorn, its base, and the fact 'that the-occupation of, its present po- sition was so precipitate indicates that the line of retreat was not well organized.

Were it not for Hie men vdio are sewing us at the front all that we possess in this world might be destroyed. Let us remember Belgium, and its fate whcii' we are asked to'contribute to the Patriotic Fund and the Red Cross organizations, which exist J'or the purpose of as- sisting the dependents of the soldiers who are serving us at the front-and'to relieve the suffering amongst the men who: have been wounded upon the battlefield.

Wei-e the enemy able to bet tuot upon our ter- ritory, or to bombard our ports, he would do so.

We arc at -war, and the only reason [hat we are living-ill a .peaceful land is because of the service the army and navy are us. It is (rue, as we have otten said before, that times, are hard and that money i-s-hard to gel, nevertheless contributions under such circumstances will lest' our patriotic spirit more than an appeal in a prosperous period.
