(By Anne Merrill.) (London Corrospondent). "The thino I am always afraid of js that someone will find out liow afraid I am." This astonishing confession was made by Lieut. McKean, V.C., M.M., of Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbridge, while he was relating to me some of his wonderful experiences of the recent battle of Arras, as I sat by his hedildo today In the Prince of Wales hospital, Marylebono, London, where ho is recovering from a shrapnel wound in the log. It was Bpok�n very slowly, as though he was Just discovering the fact himself; and remembering this, It 1b all the more to his credit that he has on many occa.sions so magnl-(icently conquered tliat feeling of fear. Lieut. McKean had Ijeeh remarking how disgusting it was to see the Gernmii.�! running away as they had Ijecu doing In such large numbers, tlirougli sheer terror, and throwing down their weapons as they fled. It was inconceivable to him how Oiey could behave lllte that. He perfectly understood their sensation of fear-it was the showing that fear which counted against thera. He had to control his own fear by will power, he acltnowledged, and he felt lilte kicking a man who shivered and .shook when he was in danger. The nearest he had ever come to shooting anyone was once when he witnessed an officer Rhowing cowardic6 before his men. Such a man was totally unfit to lead' men and they could hardly be blamed for not following him, or refusing to obey orders, he maintained, "On the other hand, it was wonderful to see how men would follow you, if they saw, or thought, you were not afraid;" and Lieut. McKean smiled as he changed the word. By the way, it is only fair to state that Lieut. McKoan liad not the slightest idea ho was being inter- AUCTION SALE On the Old Hereford Ranch, northeast quarter Sec. 15, Twp. 5, Rge. 21.

PORTEOUS, Auctio|i|eer viewed. I admit taking this unfair ad' vantage, calling upon him as "a visitor from I'Idmonton," my only defence bping tlie fear of scaring away every vestige of a "story" had he known the trutli.-A. M. Only One Left iJcKean, V.C., was scout officer for his battalion-^he iias always been a "scout," he said; Their objective was to take a certain viliagc on a certain morning at 8 o'clock, and the details leading up to that splendid teat I shall leave the historian to tell, that is, as much of it as the censor will let through. My very brief account will Jump from the time the barrage played beautifully upon the viilago during the advance, when a shell from enemy quarters fell among the little company, which Lieut. McKean found himself leading, and brought to earth everyone but himself. "I was the only one left, standing," he said, "as far as I could see." And though he too was wounded, he felt that that village had to bo taken, and he seemed to be the only one left to do the Job. And so, ignoring the bleeding wound, not even waiting to bandage it, ho collected a few oncoming men from the reinforcements-about ten in all- and with a "hurrah boys" they dashed forward into the streets of the place; but when they arrived in the village square, their numbers were reduced to three. Three Take Village Three to take a village crammed full of the enemy! Think of the sensation these three Canadians must have had as they stood in that little square.-A lieu tenant, a corporal and an Irish boy private! The village was full of Germans, said Lieut. McKean. Their heads were sticking out of every window.-There were Just the window frames left, all the glass being broken.-And the Huna were all armed. "They could have disposed of ub as easy as anything if they had stood their ground," declared Lieut. McKean. "It was miraculous they hadn't shot us. There was nothing to prevent them, unless it was that they believed there were hundreds more of us behind," and the wounded officer smiled at the recollection of the way he had deceived them by waving h/s arms and beckoning those Invisible hordes to come on! But few were the reinforcements. And few seemed necessary. Leaping from every door and window, wliich ever way seemed quickest, Heineys, large and small, young and old, scurried away like rats, in holy terror, and throwing away their guns and every other impediment as tliey fled along the previously shell-swept streets and lanes. Machine guns played on the retreating enemy and in every direction small parties hurried forward and cut them off and trapped them; so that altogether there were between four and five hundred prisoners hauled into the Canadian net by that one morning's operations. I recently saw McKean being in vested. He was A^C.eed at the same time as Capt. Carpenter of the Vin diciive. SAVE TREE LEAVES Valuable as Plant Food and Make Soil Retentive of Moisture The leaves that fall from forest and shade trees pontain valuable plant food. Rake up the leaves from the lawn, walks and roadways, but do not bum them. Make a compact heap by piling them up in one big pile. Stamp the pile down by treading on it with the feet. Wetting down with the hose will help to make it compact and prevent scattering, it will also hasten decay. Boards placed on top of the pile will keep the leaves from blowing about. Gather up the leaves every few days as they fall. By spring the pile will be well decayed and can be scattered over the surface of the garden before it is spaded. The leaves are valuable not only for the plant food they contain, but because they make the soil more retentive of moisture and keep it loose, so the tiny rootlets of the plants can peneti'ate the soil for greater distances In search of food and moisture, resulting In larger and finer vegetables or flowers. A dressing of lime may be given the soil this autumn. This can bo spaded under, leaving the surface rough until next spring, when the decayed leaves can be spread and turned under. If there is manure or decayed compost at hand spread and turn it under this autumn and in the spring turn und^r more. There Is very little garden soil that can be made too rich or have too much vegetable matter incorporated with It. The second spading of this land in the spring will put It in better mechanical condition. The best results in gardening can oaig obtained by effort. NAVY PLAYED A TlLUiPART ON BELGE COAS story Told By the Admiralty-Huns Sank Another Boat at Ostend. London, Oct. 21.-Tlie operations on the Belgian coast are descr'.bed in a thrilling narrative issued by the admiralty. There hnrt com,.^ a rumor froin up thq coast that l!); Germans had rcrtiuved their Iieav./ bntterieti with which ihe coast wns aruiod., but ir. the jfte;'Loon when .i roconnnis-!;ance wa;: n ade at the h^i.l oE West-deep, mile lifter mile of big Kuns awoke and blazed at tli9 slowly crav.-l-ing screen of smoke within which the ships had massed themselves. Shells of all calibres from six to U inch roared out from the coast and plunged into or burst upon ths sea and spat heaving fountains of water. Only one burst was near enougii to a ship to droif'fragments aboard lier and between the spouts tlie siuokemaking motor launches each dragged a swelling tail of vapor behind it, moved unhurried, the men leaning from the rails with landing nets, scooping up fish killed by the explosions. A Visit to Zeebrugge. In the evening, it was the turn of the coastal motor boats, the smallest of all. Theal function was to pay a visit to Zeebrugge where the old cross channel boat Brussels was reported lying and sink her where she lay. These boats, working up.'to the top speed, swung around in a curve that had the point of the mole with the lighthouse and searchlight for its centre and drove in toward the beach at Heyst,. Just east of .^-jebrugge. At 700 yards the hulk of the Brussels was visible, clean enough against the mole iu the moonlight with its two funnels standing against a big store shed. ~ . The airplanes had ceased flare-dropping and were bombing and to this accompaniment the first torpedoes were fired. The second torpedoes were then let go at 400 yards and the boats, bearing away seaward, heard and saw the bursts of tliree of them. Independent observation by an officer in tlie leading boat and by a torpedo specialist iu the last boat agree that one torpedo hit the target close to the stern. No boat was hit and there were' no casualties. Huns Block Channel. With the Allied Armjes in Belgium, Oct. 20.-(By the Associated Press.)- Before leaving Ostend .the .permans scuttled a large mail boat alongside the old Britisli warsfiip Vindictive, which was sunk in the channel there last May. They thus made doubly sure that the channel will be blocked for some time. \ when death enters your home that no funeral is too economical for us to sympathetically take charge of. � WE MANUFACTURE a special line of caskets, and as we do all the work ourselves this enables us to sell at a remarkably low price.

Motor Equipment Iii.Hpeclion of the city shows that British shells did terrific damage to onemy military and naval cstablisli-ments, but did not harm tlio residential or business sections to any extent. The only money to bo found in O.stend and other liberated Belgian cities is German. Many of the small children, especially in Ostend, use German as their own language. The enemy apparently went out of his way to teach his tongue to these children. Baroness L. W'. Zoilner, of Xe\l York, has been interned at Knox ville, Tenn., for violation of hei parole.
