Attack by Subiea.
COMMANDER FALLS AT WHEEL
Qt'EfcNSTOWX. July 6. With
nine dead sailor stretched on Its
deck, eight men lying wounded be
low and Its sides riddled with shot
and shell, the British steamship
Anglo-Callfornlan steamed into
Queenstowo harbor this morning
after having withstood the attack, of
a German submarine for four hours.
The ship's escape from destruction was
accomplished with no other means of i
defense than the Indomitable spirit of
tt raptaln anil craw, combined with
masterly seamanship, ahlch enabled It
to frustrate tte efforts of Ita sssallsnt
to torpedo It.

The story of how Captain I'srslon

amidst a rain of shot and ralmlv
directed the movement of hii ship
until h was killed by shell, end of
how his place was taken by hta ann
until British destroyers appeared and
the aubmaiine waa compelled to flee,
fold by th turvlvora.
The Anglo-Callfornlan left Montreal
for ths PrltlKh lalea on June 24. The
aubmarlne was sighted at i o'rlook Inat
Sunday morning. Captain Taralow or
dered full steam ahead and wireless
i alia for sssletame were sent out.
The aubmarlne on the surface proved
to be a far spewllrr raft than the
steamer and rapidly overhauled It, mean
while deluging It with shells. One shot
put the wireless apparatus on the Anglo
t allfornlan out of action. Finding he
could not eecape by running for it. Cap
tain Parslow devoted Ma attention to
maneuvering hla ship to prevent the sub
marine from ualng torpedoes effectively.
Captain Brave Mae.
' Our captain was a brave man," aald
one of the narrators. "He kept at hla
peat on the bridge, .-oolly glvln? orders
' the submarine circled around us,
vainly Seeking to get a poaltla from
which It could give ua a death blow with
torptdoea. All the while the underwater
, boat continued to rain ahot and shell
upon ua and at times was ao close that
It waa able to employ Ita (una effec
tively. .'At last one shell blew the captain
off the bridge, killing him outright and
terribly mutilating Mm. Just before
that he had given orders to launch the
hosts, but this waa very difficult under
the shell fire. Several men were etruck
down while working at the davits. Ul
timately four boata were got overboard
and were rowed away ur.til picked up."

to an attendant and asked for a lead

Holt seemed to be In pain, entered the
cell and found blood flowing from a

After the flow of blood had been cheeked
and the wound bandaged, the keeper and
Warden Hulae searched for the pencil.
They found it on the cot. Holt had es
treated the rubber eraser from the tip of
the pencil and with his teeth had bit the
metal which held the rubber In position
until the edges mst. . The result waa a
fairly sharp weapon with a blade perhaps
a quarter of an inch long.
Did Not Reach, Artery.
Apparently Holt had not reached the
artery. He had cut a vein, however, and
from this the blood was folwlng. To the
warden'a queatlon as to why he had at
tempted to kill himself, Holt refused to

There are many with the tell-tale signs of indi
cation, heart, liver or nerve troubles who don't suspect
that coffee is a frequent eauee of these and other ills.
Any ailing person can find if coffee has anything
to do with his trouble, by a 10-days change to
the pure food-drink.
It contains no caffeine or tAnnin (the coffee drugs)
nothing but the nourishing elements of whole wheat,
roasted with a little wholesome molasses.
Potstum comes in two forms: Postura Cereal the
original form must be well boiled to bring out the
flavour and food value and Instant Postum the
soluble form prepared in the cup with hot water in

equally delicious, and cost about the same per cup.
