LONDON. Oct. l.o. Sidney Dark, the
author, says: "I wrote the other day
that the British were an in,i

made It clear that Englishmen, Irish
men and Scotsmen fight for fun. Ex
traordinary as It seems to foreign peo
ple. It Is perfectly clear from the let
ters written from the front and from
the conversations with the wounded
who have come home -that the men who
nave for days faced the appalling Ger
man attack 'enjoyed themselves Im
mensely." I confess that I do not understand
it in the least. To me it Is something
wonderful and surprising, but It Is a
fact that must evidently be taken Into
account if we are to realize our coun

the best out of It at this crisis In Its

In their shirt sleeves are to me the two
most insistent pictures that have come
to us from the- front. Emphatically and
magnificently British. Ortherls over

fighting for the real love of the game.
Country's Uangrrr Not Realized.
"These martial, "scrap-loving" Eng
lishmen, Scotsmen and Irishmen are not
consciously patriotic. They are not
moved to enthusiasm by the flag. They
are much . more eager to sing 'It's a
long. Long Way to Tlpperary' than
'Rule, Britannia,' and I am afraid that
their brothers and their cousins may
not be attracted by the most fervent
t declarations that the country Is In
danger. They will never believe it. No
eloquence and no facts will ever per
suade them that Britain can really be
threatened by any foreign nation or by
all the foreign nations combined to
gether. "The most effective recruiting Ser
geant for these men who, because they
love fighting, must necessarily be the
best fighters, would be a man of their
own kind, who would tell them In their
own language what magnificent fun a
battle is, and how it knocks football
and a 20-round boxing contest Into a
cocked hat.
"An East End doctor asked one of
his women patients why her brother
bad enlisted. "Oh, I don't know.' was
the reply, ' 'e always wants to be hin
heverything. 'E's one of them nosey
sort.' What Bhe meant was that her
brother was a born adventurer. Sol
diering was probably a bore to him in
peace time, but he just had to be in
it when the guns began to shoot.
Piety Fearful Characteristic ' '
"The south of England always has
produced adventurers. Most of the men
who sailed with Drake went just for
the fun of the thing. Salvation Yeo
felt that he had a mission from heaven
to kill Spaniards, but his messmates
killed Spaniards and were killed by
them for the thrill of the game.
"I do not think that any other peo
ple fight quite In the same spirit as
the British and the Irish. This spirit
has two distinct sides to it. There Is
the good-humored, rollicking reckless
ness and the dour, stubborn persistence,
as characteristics of the modern Scotch
regiments as it was characteristic of
Cromwell's Ironsides. -
'The Scotsman enjoys fighting every
bit as much as the cockney, but his in
terest is deeper and Quieter, part of his
religion. When a pious man fights and
finds fighting pleasant he is the most
terrible fighter in the world. The Cav
alier discovered that In the 17th cen
tury, and I am certain that if Sir Wil
liam Robertson Nicoll beats up recruits
from Young Men's Christian Associa
tions' and chapel Bible classes, they will
form the fiercest and most determined
battalions in all the allied armies."

To the United States this session has
a special significance. For the first
time will the American irrigationists
be able to see with their own eyes the
progress made by Canada on lines
which still perplex many of the states.
A feature of this year's sessions will
Ybe the opportunity to see and review
the largest single irrigation project
In the world, only a few miles from
This project Is the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company's Irrigation block,
containing 3,000,000 acres. Nearly
1,000,000 acres already have been
brought under ditch and the total

vast undertaking exceeds 8100 miles!

tacking the attitude of King Charles

crisis, has been given out by Victor

European conflict, the Roumanian peo

Austria. This hostility Is pushing the
people to drastic action. The cry is for
a greater Roumania and tha liberation
of our brothers in Transylvania.

"Undoubtedly the situation has
placed King Charles in a dilemma, for
he already has made his choice between
his duty as of a free people and
his duty as a Hohenzollern. The lat
ter proved too dear to his heart; he is
serving his caste and will do so until
his death.
"When Russia proposed to King
Charles that he occupy Transylvania
and Bukowlna. he refused, declaring
his troops were needed to guard the
frontier. Bukowlna, which is just as
Roumanian as Transylvania, is occu.

France's War Outlay $420,
000,000 in 60 Days.
Finance Minister Says Arrangements
. Have Been Made to Assure Re
sources Should Conflict Ex
ceed Limit roreseen.
PARIS. Oct. 3 The war is costing
France $7,000,000 a day. Minister of
Fiance Alexandre Rlbot announced to
day that the outlay for the first 60 days
of the conflict had been $320,000,000.
M. Ribot gives an interview to the
Temps on the situation in the Bank
of France. He says that on October 1
the bank had $812,400,000 In cash,
which was $63,800,000 more than it had
on the eve of the war. "Loans and dis
counts, the Minister of Finance aaid.
"are $895,200,000, an increase during the
last weea oi ii,&uu,U0U.
"The advances made to the Govern
ment on October 1, after two months
of the war, reached $420,000,000. The
credit balance on the same date in the
treasury was $58,200,000 and therefore
we are far from having exhausted the
amount provided by our convention
with the bank. Besides we have just
renewed the convention to assure the
resources necessary in case the war
should be prolonged beyond the date
now roreseen. -
Bank Deposits Increase.
"The total bank bills In circulation
October 1 was $1,845,800,000. this being
$37,400,000 less than the preceding
week. This is explained by an Increase
in the deposits which on October 1
reached $435,400,000, an increase of
$41,800,000 over the preceding week
and it can be seen that France is far
from having exhausted her reserves
and that when the hour comes she will
find the money for a new loan, which
at present is unnecessary."
Discussing the projected re-opening
of the Paris Bourse. M. Ribot said:
"I think there is an interest in doing
so without delay but it is necessary to
taae into consideration that the ex
changes in London and New York still
remain closed. There is no hurry any
where to give too great faculties for the
negotiation of foreign securities in the
fear of seeing money go abroad, and
if the Bourse reopens we would have
to take precautions in this direction.
Liquidation Is Avoided.
"In any case. the Finance Minister
added, "a resumption of negotiations
on the Bourse would - necessitate the
liquidation of operations made before
the war and this could not be done
without certain advances to the mar
ket I am trying myself to put into
shape measures that may soon be ap

Almost everyone knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur, properly compounded,
brings back the natural color and
lustre to the hair when faded, streaked
or gray; also ends dandruff, .ltohins
scalp and stops falling hair. Years
ago the only way to get this mixture
was to make it at home, which is
mussy and troublesome. Nowadays,
by asking at any drugstore ' for
"Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Com
pound." you wUl get a large bottle
of this famous old recipe for about
50 cents.
Don't stay gray! Try It! No one
can possibly tell that you darkened
your hair, aa it does it so naturally
and evenly. Tou dampen a sponge o
soft brush with It and draw this
through your hair, taking on small

hair disappears, and after another ap
plication or two, your hair becomes
beautifully dark, thick and glossy.
