Sometimes I wonder what a mean
man thinks when he goes to bed
when he turns out the light and lies
down alone. He is compelled to be
honest with himself. Not a bright

a word of blessing not a grateful
look comes back to h'm. When he
does not hear "God bless you" of the
departed day, how he must hate him
self! How cheerless and dreary his
own path must appear!

Hallowe'en decoiations were every
where in evidence with corn stalks
banked in, suggestive corners, the
floor leaf-strewn. Into this candle
lighted room the children were ush

managed the games until the blinds
were lifted. Grace Duff in costume
made an ideal "Jack in the Barrel,"
bcbLing up to hand out apples at
lunch time. Anna Schroder in gypsy
beads and paint sat in front of a gyp
sy tent and made a pleasing "child
of Ishmael" as she held the hands
of the children, reading them and
handing to each its fortune. The
ladies expressed themselves as hav

PROLONGING THE WAR.
England doesn't seem to be in any
hurry to finish the war. She says
that it took fifteen years to polish off
Napoleon Bonaparte. The Canadian
volunteers who have reached England
are undergoing training in English
camps. The Indian contingent is just
now beginning to take part in the
fight. The plan of. the Allies is to
keep the Germans fighting along their
present line until their strength is
exhausted. Lord Charles Beresford.
in a speech at Stafford, England, the
other day, said: "The serious time
of the war will begin when the Ger
mans are forced over the frontier and
are in their own country with their
own base of supplies." He added that
it would take more than six months
or a year to put Emperor William on
his back. The British state that they
r.ow have 1 00,00" fresh troops witnin
one day of the line of battle in the
east portion of France, and their tac
tics contemplate keeping the Germans
continually on the offensive, in the
course of which they lose many more
men than the Allies. At all events,
there seems to be no chance of peace
at this present writing, and the inev
itable result will be to make a mar
ket for everything that the Missis
sippi valley can produce. The South
American trade that has hitherto
gone to Germany, France and Eng
land will be deflected tc this coun
