The fTght for Del-vlll^.^vyood lasted for nearly two months, and in those two months 400^,\shells fell ^ytfy minute on De^ilie Wood, and, not less than tOOtiw men were kftled and wojiheted .therft. .

By the side, of the traj^ iwas '.a psor starved cat eating the :bralns o*. a man. "In,.High Wood,they fought till the"'rao� ^ifld- boiies'-of dead men hung 'from the wrecks of the tr*^ j^ln .^^o'zieres," 0}en Jived for jdaySrSnd.nights, under, a nev; �r-6'eMins barrage . cle^igheii to t)lBW~ Ihcni off the ridge' which t>i�y- had won.

'^S^dnty "thousand men' were Milaji jind wounded in the taking af a nest of machine guns in the apiitenan^n fort .of' Meuquet Faiim.' Our'men went'-dbwn into , the .shafts of that fort and /61ig}\t In the darkneea underground till the passage was all seamed with bullets. "We losi haTf a "million men in thatogreat battle, and'we'had our rewau>d. For in the wjnter of ,19'}7,j^jn the winter night, a oreat and shattering barrage raged up along thcf front, it was the barrage which covered the attack on Miraumont, and drove the en-amy from the Ancre vailey. The next day came the n�ws that Sarra^ad ^llan, and-are-went up and stood In Serre. And Gomme- ' couif fell, and the rain of ahells ceased' upon Xoupart' and -� La 'Barque, and the news'ran along IHfe>w'ildfire that the anefny was flolng back." �o wrobe John'Maoe-fJaldT Vifhat; al6i>gs1d)B such ^angti--agti aa tl^^s, are figures ar/d appeals to the material aide of war' bonds? Why not discard altogether the tactics and practices of the counting house, so foreign to such a cause as that In which we are engaged to the death, and ttand upon the higher platform of patriotism? internal conditions are so bad tlint a revoluUon , might develop quickly. Further vrartatia. 'would assure civil war. The German carfliiial, -whose statement -was' published yesterday, confesses that the situation in Ger-inany Is dark. Germany is on the 4dge of tlie precipice. Russia's present state, for whioli it is responsible, hiay be its own before many 'weeks, it -would be^R just punishment for the war lords, too. A taste of Russia's tnedictne would make them reallie the evil they had created in the ^orld. GERMANY'S PROMISE fro 'DISCARp AUTOCRACY. ; Whether demiany is in earnest or .not in its last peace note, it has made one admission that cannot he with-,llrawn;and that is tliat it is going to abandon autocracy and give the people the right to rule. The progressive elements ill -Qefmany- won't Oyer-iook that. Such a concession would never have -come- to-Garjjiaijy,_had., it not-been for-the victory of the allies. The ,alli^ have savd Germany from 'furtbar--autocratic, rule, . land, soma day in the future ~n�*st,-Germans far. ' OeRMANY 18 -AT TjrfE PRECIPICE. TiVjiefli'er Gergiany Is bluffing In'ite Mace'overtures or not, we are cer-ipf, gne thing, and that Is that PARSONS AND PROFESSORS WOflK-ON SHIPYARDS. The United States entered the waf late, but Us people are making np for lost time. Visit New York, and wher-, aver you go some form of war effort, is in sight. The war bulks bis over there. They take it seriously; they respond gladly to every appeal. -�?hether it be' for men, money, food Saving or, gasoline saying. I:� biggest and best men serve wherever they fesl" duty calls them. The New York Qutlpok In a rectnt issue contained' - the -following item about "the warservices ofpaTSons; and professors during the vacation months of summer: Dr. Stephen S. "Wise, ra^bi of the Free Synagogue in New York City, is ^ot the only preacher who has become a ship-buildeif. 'In one Maine sbip^ yard four clergymen are now^at vfork. College professors too have turned their hands to manual labor -nd are constructing ships.- The four clergymen are the Rev. Vf. E Green, L. E. Darling, M. P. t)ar-. ling, and R. S. Loard. They, various Protestant denominations.and are all working at the Cumberland Ship-Building Company's yards. South Portland, JIainer In the same yards are Professor W. P.' DaggEtt. ot the University of Maine, at Orono, and Professor "William Wallace Andrews, Principal of the. Butler Grammar School, at Portland. Another notable recruit to the Maine shipyards is Dr. Arthur Lea-cock, professor of Greek at Phillips Etrete'r Academy.  . So almost completely have all these parsons and professors succeeded in losing their identity in the shipyard that it is ..with some difficulty that they may be located a-mong the workers. The same is true of Dn Wise and his son James, who are working as common 4aborerB at J3 a day in the Luders, 'Marine Construction Company's Shipyards, Stamford, Connecticut. Dr. Wise reports with his son at 7 a.m'. daffy and quits with the other workers. These men whom we h.ave mentioned are but a few among many Americans who have chosen to work in the.shipyards as their contribution of energy to the winning of the war. Canada has been in the 'war since the beginning. Our people, the bulk at any rat�, have made many! sacrifices ot loved ones, money, pleasure and luxuries, and it is inspiring to read that across-the-line, our record is being emulated, and in some instances, surpassed. It is only by a common sacrifice and a united effort of all the people, combatants and non-combatapts, that the irar can be won.  Save that you may be able to in* vest in your country. Buy a Victory Bond and aid in giving the. enemy a crushing blow. Canada ne.eds your dollars as much as she needed men; save to meet the need.. Probably the electors of Red Deer wish that public meetings could be banned there for-the balance of the election campaign. ers. Should we at home maintain as fundamental . the national egoism -which until a short time a^ -was the dominating 'force Vf the people's lite there would be no,'restitution, and renovation for us. There, would �be n feeling ot bitterness whtoii" would cripple us for generktioiis.' ' " , Idea of Justice "Rut it we comprehend that the significance ot this (rightful- war is, above all. victory for-the ildea-'Of-ius-tiro and if wc do not resist this idea but s.ubmit with all good faith, then we .=hall find in'"lt;^a"cnrB'*rr't)nr I present wounds and a-",reseBvoir ot future strength." - + , Prince Maximillan'"'said"*"~tirat""'he would not deny, ht>wever,'" that''j5'v:ery-I one in Germany must be cbhquered before the ideal league lot 'nations ! could be realized, but'he continaedr-I "Whether the next few 'wie'elts 'haU jcall us to fight on. or open-tj^  w,ny for peace, there is no doubt we are now eqiial to the task of Either war or peace by carrying, out tie government's program and_ d'Sfiai.'':.e!>; breaking away trom'the old'sys'tem?". The imperial chanoellot:.. then discussed electoral and pariliamentary reforms. ' He cited "bilfs before the reichstag. one of which'enables members of the house to enter the sovern-ment without resigning and. another proposing a change �>in i the laws regarding the .regpopsjbyity ef the chan. cellor. He continued; "Deputies- will take .partyin fhe direction of impfiria! policy-and in^tho name of the chancSHor -nill beT^pon-sibie without being iministers, -thus a new way is Opened, for arriving at responsible conduct -of'imperial-'Btf^irs -the parliamentary 'w-ay.

' . "The new syst�m',""heV_said, "involves, as a natural. consequence, a new mode of government in-A.!sace-Lorraine." .  ' . ,..... The dispatch says that the.'government remains very\hostile to the return of Alsace-Do^raine 'to" , France. Emperor William himseU is reported to have emphatically denounced such an- event at the meeting ot the c;pwn council on Saturday; ",.�. T TJ l Authority for People The chancellor declared-it was- the aim of himself and-hiB, ..colleagues to establish the political aiithorily of the German people.^ After saying that he welcometi expressionsr of .opinioiC and that he and his colleagues were agreed as to methods andpurposes, he-added: -'Our aim is the political authority ot the Germap people, fhis. i.?- the guiding star of myself." ,'�*/. . The chancellor said .that, fndivi'dual members,of the government at -first had diSerent viewpoints,-Jbut .now had been brought nearer. togefAef.; ~',|The German people has long -been in' the saddle," he said. "Now it-is to ride." "Our first and last' tho~uglit,". the chancellor continued, "is tor the brave men who are , defending themselves against superior fofces and whom we must defend against, unjust^ charges. No one must think he^, ca'ii atjtack our army -without'attacking the hon: or of our people. _____ ______._______ , .. "The lot of our soldiers today is terribly hard. They fight w^th anxiety for the homeland and with their minds fixed on peace, and ,they hold their ground. / ' ' ' ' The 'extraordinary^ war time measures, the chanceiltfi-explairiSd, could not yet be dispensed virith, but' they could be carried outosnly by the chancellor, who would'be responsible to the reichstag for their application. "His majesty's decrees, which I announced recently, haVe how beeh issued," he said. "They concern not only thei censorship, th^-right-of public meeting and restrictions on personal liberty, but have to do with economic, social and political inatlers." "If local, military ^commanders disagree with the civil authorities, the decision must be reached.immediately by the highest commander, who will not be able to promulgate any-decision to which agreement is not given by myself or my representative, namely. Secretary of State" Groeber. Care will be talien that the state of siege is maintained 'ft the spirit in which I assumed the functions of tiie govern-me'iit and in which I am resolvotl to discharge them." Some people may find It harder to buy Victory Bonds this year thsin last, but a purchase, made at a sacrifice, .will reap its reward. Candidate Galbraitb In the Red Deer bye-election doesn't claim to be a farmer, as his opponent, but he boasts of some agricultural experience, for his paper, the Advocate, says: He has bumped his head on beams in hauling out jjlg-manure Irom und';r a barn; he has been at the tail-end of a threshing '/nacblne without a blower; be has bumped over pieces ot corduroy roads and been mired in pitch holes; he has wrestled with willow roots in clearing land. He has lost money in farming-"he has not madeniuch at it. He knows' the farm conditions by experience; he has always-had sympathy with the farmer, and has frequently expressed his vjow that it is the. worst remunerated business ^nTroportion to the brains and capital involved, of any business- save, perhaps, tl^e newspaper business in war-time. fISRMYiO ELilNATEMER Geneva, Oct. 22.-Peace must not be delayed a single day on account of the Holienzollerns, if they are an obstacle to it, (IcclsreK the Volkafrciung i-ot Karlsruhe, which also is permitted 1 to speak of the dlsajipQarance of the ! superstitious bf;lief thfit .the emperor ' was chosen to rule by Divine Right.

Lesser Slave Lake  is in northern Alberta, and a few -months ago the Government gave permission to certain interests to take out of the lake 1,500,000 pounds of fish.

Dr. Roberts, medical health officer of Hamilton, declared that among other things the use. of eucalyptus was of no" use as a preventative against Spanish influenza. Senator Lynch-Staunton, who has made use of eucalyptus many times to ward 'off grippe, disagroes with the doctor's opinion.
