Playing Role of Hero-Georges Andrea, Prominent at Olympic Games (By Alan Bordeaux, Sept. ath- letes have been distinguishing them- selves in the lighting line. Two days ago a notice appeared in an official gazette that a corporal named Georg- es Andre, who was mentioned in the despatches, had been promoted to be a sergeant before the members of his regiment, and recommended tor a military medal. The newspapers sug- gested "that this might refer to Geor- ges Andrea, to whom the French 1'remier recently alluded to as an all- round athlete, and the best Rugby three-quarter, and who was second to Pestle in the London Olympic games. From inquiries I learned that this is indeed the case, and the following is the story of how Andrea, who is with the French army in Lorrain, won his honors. With six men he went into a village to ftnd rooms for the officers. In the market-place was a large band-of Germans who, imme- diatcly set upon the small French de- tachment. Andrea snatched a sabre from the German nearest him and killed two men willh it. By this time he saw that his companions were dead or captured. He grabbed a flag from the Germans, and, putting it under his arm, he raced ,through the village street as though attempting a try in Hugby iootball, with a her of Germans following at his heels. After sprinting a quarter of a milo he left his pursuers far behind, and later he rejoined his regiment with the (lag, having been lucky enough to escape injury from the hail of bullets directed at'him. Some days previous he wrote to a sportsman friend; who 'has shown me the letter, from which I take the following ex- tract "This is .hell We are Tying in trenches under the German artillery fire, hut are not allowed to reply. This is the only time I find to- write my correspondence."

The' Cream City promoter refused to say whether Welsh would he the first or last attraction, and this may caise a hitch in the arrangements, Lewis' contention being that, should White defeat, the title holder, his val- ue in one battle he worth more Ihan the sum offered for the three tilts.

Besides granting S1000 to the Can- adian Patriotic Fund, the position of the C. 0. F. with reference to those of its who already have or may hereafter enter into the active service of Great Britain or of ary of Britain's allies in the present war is as follows 1. The insurance and sick and fun- eral benefits of all inemhers admitted to the order prior to Aug. 1, 1 "14, will le good and valid, notwithstand- ing that they serve in the armies or navies of Great Britain or any of Britain's allies in the present war, 2. That the insurance and sick and funeral benefit premiums or assess- ments -of those members admitted prior to Aug. 1st, serving as aforesaid will, during the war or for one year, should the war last longer, Le paid out of the genera! fund of the High Court. 3. This provision for the payment of premiums or assessments is not by way of loan and .will not be a charge on the policy, it is a gift or bonus to those who take up arms in defence of the Empire in the pres- ent crisis. 4. If the war should last longer than one year we hope to be able to renew this bonus. 5. We have extended these provi- sions to those who may serve in the armies or navies oi Britain's allies for the reason that many of. bur members are French t reservists and some are and Russia and we feel thafall are'fight- ing in defence of the British Empire.

The fifth installment of what is really the life story of a crook who -has Sir Doyle's wildest creation gaping for breath, is well up to the standard, and will furnish a good topic for discussion-among the patrons of the Bijou, 'where it will be shown Friday and Saturday. "The False Magistrate" is worthy of the highest commendation. The man who drops bis book at home to visit the moving picture theatre in the hope of being as well entertained by what he sees on the screen will suffer no disappointment. When they.mado their first picture in this series, the Gaumont people in- troduced Fantomas as a master crook and set upon his trail police officers equipped with superior intellect and all aids of modern science. While the troubles of the principal character are sufficient to discourage others from following in his footsteps, iif order that the stories may he made interesting and kept on .going, the crook invari- ably proves trifle too shrewd for those who are seeking his punishment.

REASON'S FOR USING "Alberta's Pride" BEER AT MEAL TIMES "ALBERTA'S PRIDE BEER" is a concentrated liquid lood. Tea and Coffee are in no wise fuuda. In countries where beer is used as a table bever- age, dyspepsia is practically unknown. So is stomach trouble in gencrhl. In Germany beer is more frequent- ly drank than at meal lime. The prejudice against strong stimulants has in no I wise impaired the value of "Alberta's Pride Beeri" the most nutritious of all liquid foods. This beer is absolutely pure. This is no idle claim, but one that we can back up by proof. Come to our. and v.-e v.'ill show you. To those who value strong digestive organs we advise "Alberta's Pride Beer" and we recommend it to convalescents because it is a tonic. 1 _ THE LETHBR1DGE BREWING MALTING COMPANY, Limited PHONE 554 TURKISH AMBASSADOR TO LEAVE THE STATES Washington, D.O., Sept.
