The reply was rather unexpected, bat it is stated that the ajjied authorities do not deem a reply necessary at the present time. How. ever, the allied war council is preparing for a meeting in France no"^'. \ General Deben.r has won a notable victory on the Oise front, and the entire German army in this region is In retreat. THE WEARING OF THE.FLU' MASK Ttie wearing of 'flu masks does not appeal to the person who objects to being inconvenienced, but the very same person is alarmed about influenza .ind fears he will contract it. Influenza is a germ disease. It has tdken an a\N-fuI toll of life in the east. In wesfom Canada, where it has only recently arrived, the anthorities are j wisely planning to stamp it out by i drastic methods. The wearing of a mask has proved effectual in other places, and a Paris doctor of eminence declares that it everybody wore a mask in that city the epidemic would be overcome in five days. We ihay not like to wear the mask but if those'in authority are of the mind that the wearing of it will prevent the �i�read of the disease, we should' yield to the order, without complaint. The saving of human life Is most important and we should do our utmost to join jn every effort to save life. lord milner's recent declaration LordMilner was educated in Germany A recent interview that he gave conveys tbe Impression that it was German made. He is willing to believe Germany and accept peace now. As the London Globe says, it would be most unfortunate if men of the type of Milner had anything to do with peace negotiations. They would yield to _; wo are going to put Into the fields of France five million men." Five million men! You t*now, I cjuldn't help looking him in the eyes and aslfing htm if he had forgotten what a colossal campaign this is, and whether It was not too late to expect to stagger the world by putting five million men in the field today. .1 said: "Look here, my friends, you know that in the first two years of the war Great Britain by voluntary enlistment without conscrip'tion of any kind, had brought five million men to the colors, and at the end of 1917 we had placed in the field in France-In the field-an army of six million men." And, I said, "You understand what that means to England?. Six million men out of a populiition of forty-two millions, that is on� man in seven of the whole of our ppuolation, old .people, women and little children, one In seven." I .said: "Your population in America is one hundred and ten millions, one-seventh of one hundred and ten millions is nearly sixteen million. I don't say It boastfully, I am simply telling you what we in England have had to do, and when you have placed sixteen million men in the field, you will then have done what we were compelled to do in 1917." You know, men often ask me what are the lines of the British army. A man said the other day: "What is your biggest army, where is the biggest British army?" I said: "Don't you know?" He said: "No, I do not." 1 said; "The biggest British army Is under the sod." That is where the biggest British army is. In the first few months of the war,- these figures are quite authentic, I verified them at the British embassy before I venture to put them before you,-in the first few months of the war we lost 550,000 men; we lost 78 per cent, of our entire fighting land forces in the first few months of the war. In the great retreat one division went Into action 12,000 strong and 2,000 came out. Out of)409 officers in one engagement 50 returned. You talk about the Somme fight, you know what It cost us? 25,000 officers, half a million men, and I can't tefl you about the Dardanelles. We lost in the first year in the war 550,-000, in the second year of the war 650,000,. in 1917 we lost 800,000 men. You know what France lost that same year?. 300,000; that is to say, that in 1917 the British force lost half a million men more than France. The reason for this heavy loss was the fierce fighting in Flanders. You read about .-Passchendaele and Vimy Ridge and they are names to you, but oh, the cost of them. We lost 27,000 men In one month killed in Flanders, a portion of the line; at another point we lost,/killed, 6,000 officers and 95,000Ven killed. 1 can't tell you what we lost In March, but I know this, our officers' casualties were 10,000. Verdun, you have heard of Verdun, you know how many divisions were thrown In there. Twenty and a half divisions. Germany threw in twenty and a half divisions against Verdun from first to last. You khow'what was thrown In at Cam-bral?. She threw In In Cambral 107 divisions and 102 of ^hose were thrown against one point of. theBritTsh line,-and some people are foolsJ enough tp ask; "Why was there a gap In your line?" Why waa there a gap In your line! Why? Contrast the 20 divisions at Verdun with 102 divisions at C.ambral and with all that armament of Germany ^nd you will understand why there waa a gap In the line;;-Capt.
