DOUKHOBORS FOR WAR Representative From' Canada Offers Services to Russia London, Oct. Petrograd cor- respondent says that 300 Russian re- servists have arrived there from Ca- nada. Among tnem is a representa- tive of the Doulrhohors, who has come to ask the government to allow his co-religionists to act as ambulance men. The Doukhohors, it will be re- membered, emigrated to Canada fif- teen years ago to e'scape military ser- vice, which is against their religious convictions. This emigration was made possible by the help of the late Count Tolatoi, who gave them the profits arising from the publication of his book ''Resurrection.-" Count Tolstoi's eldest daughter, Alexandra, and his son, EHie, are now serving in the Russian ambulance Stewart McKeough, Donald Rispin, and George Kerr, three Chatham of- ficers, have enlisted with, the second contingent. IT is THE TASTE; THE FLAVOR OF BAKER'S COCOA That Makes It Deservedly Popular An absolutely pure, delicious and wholesome iood beverage, produced by a scientific .blend- ing of high-erade cocoa beans, subjected to a pertect mechanical process of manufacture. Made in Canada by Walter Baker Co. Limited ESTABLISHED 1780 MONTIEAL, CANADA DORCHESTER, MASSACHUSETTS is now knoivn to yon that your .deeds have.iiued the world with ,deep 'and universal'abhorrence. The verdict'of You may possibly save --your blood stained' th'rone, but you cannot save your honor. -History will commemorate you jas "'Attlla. ''the second I Scourge of God.' Upon the historian I you cannot stamp your foot. When you {and your barbarians have followed -your ancestral Huns to the darkness prepared for you, 'your acts be re- corded. Men now unborn will shudder at your crimes. Do not fear that the magnitude of these will be belittled. Not in vain have you striven to emul- ate and to surpass tlie supreme igno: my of Atiila. No annalist will accuse you of failing to-fulfill your piti'iess vow, or to redeem your merciless pledge. When you meet Attila in the realm of dead despots, Attila will ac- knowledge your primacy in the art of butchery. He will salute you as his master in the trade, of outrage. He wiri blush with enyy of your achieve- ments in atrocity. In the pages of-Gibbon we are told that the King of the Huns had a cus- tom of fiercely rolling his eyes, as it' he 'wished to enjoy the terror he in- spired. Sire, let iie congratulate you upon your superb skill in the some custom. You .indeed made your visage feared by the women and chil- dren of Belgium...It Js true that there are men who still-refuse to fear your ferocity. Their.names and their race you kuow.-The catalogue is too long for me to recite, ft' will be longer before you cease to breathe the kindly air that shrinks from the indignity of entering and.departing from your im- perial lunss. Even'as the and gender Attila taugilt the Scythians to adore the God of War, so have you taught your legions to worship 'a. viler and fouler deity, Attiia the Less- er girt himself with the iron sword of liars and asserted his divine and in- defensible claim to the dominion of the earth: On the summit of an altar, three .hundred yards square, he placed erect his iron aword. He consecrated the dreadful shrine with human sac- rifices, throwing severed limbs in the air, and drawing omens and presages from the of their, railing.on the pile. Sire, compared with you, Attila was a bung'lfng amateur. Your altar is more than three hundred yards square. Europe is your altar.and your pile of slaughtered and mutilated human be- ings is too vast measured. Your iiuman sacrifices are innumerable. The summit of your shrine of bones reach- es to heaven, and its foundations .go down to hell. And erect on its pinnacle you have set up your Iron Cross in awful mfickery of the saored emblem iefore which humanity in its anguish kneels In prayer. There is no man who desires to dispute you the posses- sion of that symbol' of shame. -The Iron Cross is yours plone. Its sullied metal lies on the breast of your sons and yourgenerals. Kiss it with your ips. No man will deny your title to It Is tlie true miniature of the Iron Cross have cruel- led mankind. Yoir have- assured fl. scornful world that your imperial heart .'bleeds for the crucified world believes It Jii-.tbt. archives of eternity. Your heart bleeds, but what? Does it bleed pity? Does it bleed', compassion? Does it bleed remors'e? Aft, are not tbe" corpuscles that-flow in" your arteries. Your heart bleeds hypocrisy, hate, pride, falsehood, cant, impiety, arrogance and contempt for all the virtues- which Christianity' inculcates and civilisation reveres. Your heart bleeds horror that cannot be -so much as named, faith openly forsworn, honor ostentatiously trampled jn the mire. You have opened your heart to the sickened gaze of the world. Your heart, sire, is a. sepulchre filled 'with dead men's bones. You show a fata-; cowardice in your frenzied desire to whiten that sepul- chre. But all the whiteness of the Arctic snows would not suffice to spread a thin layer- of seeming inno- cence over the charnel-Jiouse which you carry in your -breast. Even the leper has the consolation of whiteness in his corruption. That solace is; not yours, for the leprosy which eats you Is no leprosy of the flesh. Sire, it is the leprosy of the soul. The nations hold their breathe as you go by, fear- ing-to catch the taint of your decay, dreading the contagion of your mqra'i decadence. Red, not 'white, is, 'your hue. It crimsons your white cloak. It.is splashed on the lin-{ tels of your palace. It roars round j the wheels of your chariot. It j gurgles under the hoofs of your charger. Bo not recoil from the red tide that] is slowly rising, rising, rising. No riv-1 er this. No torrent from the hills. It! is a sea of blood, roiling towards you j from the East and the West, from the North and the Spur your pale- horse! Gallop! The red sea closes round you. Its waves dye your garments. -The scarlet spume is blchvn about your affrighted face. Ev- ery drop of tlie crimson sea is drawn from the, veins of free men who are glad and proud to pour out their blood to swell 'the great ocean of liberty in 'which and your-house will found- er. Glut your blood-lust, tyrant. He- vel in your storm of human agony. Laugh at the groans of women, the j shrieks of children, the dying prayers of va'iiimt men. ESvilt in the sorrow that endures for a night, but tremble at the joy that cometh in the morning. The present Is your hour, but it will be brief, and when your tyranny is overpast, Ihe reckoning will begin. Only the merciful .obtain mercy. Where was your mercy on the road from Louvain to-Rhelras? Let the wo- men and children answer. It is said that Tiinur and Tamer- ane executed the ruin of flourishing cities With such unrelenting persever- ance that horses might run, 'without stumbling, over the ground where they had once stood. We are told that Tim- ur massacred men.who had dared lo smile. "What said Attila, "can hope to exist if it is, our pleasure that it shou'ld be erased from the These fiends'-were barbarians, you, a most Christian monarch, have out- done their barbarities. "It is a saying worthy of the ferocious pride of At- tila, that the grass .never grew on Ihe apot where his 'horse had trod." Will the grass grow on your battlefields? Sire, it will grow; but every blade of grass springing from .the insulted earth 'wili'be a sword of vengeance, Kurope will rise from your Iron Cross, and upon it you and your Empire will be nailed, there to be an enduring ter-1 ror to tyrants for all time. Warm the Cold Corners ;T i __ said Mrs. Com- fort, "I thought one ever would use that upstairs room. And you couidnt blame cer- tainly was chilly, there didn't seem to be anyway of heating it.

ROYALITE OIL u'beit far all THE IMPERIAL OIL CO., Limited Rci Siilntm -i I MUD PITS BEFORE TRENCHES Enemy's Trick In the Battle of the Aisne as Told by Scottish Soldier The following sto-y of Hie fislitiug in the battle of the Aisne is told by a wounded private of tlie Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, who has just been invalided home: "AW approaches to German positions are mined, and surrounded hy barhed wire entanglements. Another device that is new to me is 'the .making of quagmires in front of the trenches, us- ually hy digging extra.trenches a tew hundred .feet from the real ones, throwing in: the -loose clay, and then flooding jhem so that 5011 get a ditch of iiciuid "One day il French infantry detach- ment was advancing finely, against-the German position until .they stumbled into one of these togs, and Just as they'were stuck fast they were treated to a fiendish hail of rifle and artillery fire. They 'were .dfeadfu'ily cut up, and though thes: got away in the end, there was no question.of continuing the attack In that quarter that (lay. "In retiring the Frenchmen were pursued by a body of German cavalry, who forgot ail about the bog that had done for the Frenchmen; They dashed right into It and stuck there, so that they made a fine'target for our chaps. We'moved closer and.a battery of our artillery opened on them at the sanid time, so that they got It pretty hot while they were floundering about in the pit they hail dug fdr.others.- "Barbed wire.entanglements are ten times worse than what ;we found in South Africa. Usually they are' hid- den away in the long; grass, and you don't see them until they catch you in the legs and bring you down. That is the signal for the enemy to start firing at you, and hiany. of our chaps liave been badly useifsup there: we're getting up' to the dodge and frequently discover the wires before it's too late. Now we call the wires 'mug because it's really only the 'mugs' -who gat caught on them."
