August >. 1915. •• PUBLISHED AT 5 P.M. TOMORROW Wednesday 4th August will be the 1st anniversary of t h e Declaration of W a r against Germany byEngland. During that sliort year the lives of more Britishers, brave noblemen, have been sai rific ed than in any other war that the nation lias evei been en%  more tli in in many wars put together; more treasure, money, has b en expended foi th 1 1 sities of war, this war, than the country at one time, n it so long ago, possessed. The imm, nsitj of thi war is greater than any that the history of the world records, more nations are involved than were ever 1 ngagi d in any one war, more men have been engaged from among many nationinvolved D at f>nt: time inhabited Europe, and the world stands aghast at the number of human lives that have been sacrificed, and thei >ns< qui D tial suffei ing, misery, want and distress, thi idows and Orphans, ::m\ the maimed will be a burden under which this oltJ world will groan foi many, man;,^ears t 1 come; and the money expended upon this enormous sacrifice; of human life, the horrible catalogue of entailed misery; the enormous destruction of material property, amounts to figures winch the ordinary human mind cannot comprehend. And yet, and yet the war is not ended, and there must be another year, probably two of the same experien e except that in the coming year tin war will be fought with greater fury, greater sacrifice of human life, greater destruction of material property. The nation that falters will go under, God forbid that it should be England. Hut to maintain her own and to attain to victory, evei J citizen of the greatest Empire of the world whether he^be blanched by the snows of Canada, or ebonized bv the sun of Africa must stand up for Britain and be "Ready, aye ready" to make all the sacrifices already made and more, whether personal service, money or material.

rtT.SOAY. August >. 1915.
PUBLISHED AT 5 P.M.
TOMORROW
Wednesday 4th August
will be the 1st anniversary of
t h e Declaration of W a r
against Germany byEngland.
During that sliort year the
lives of more Britishers, brave
noblemen, have been sai rific
ed than in any other war that
the nation lias evei been en-
more tli in in
many wars put together;
more treasure, money, has
b en expended foi th 1 1
sities of war, this war, than
the country at one time, n it
so long ago, possessed.
The imm, nsitj of thi war
is greater than any that the
history of the world records,
more nations are involved
than were ever 1 ngagi d in
any one war, more men have
been engaged from among
many nation- involved
d at f>nt: time inhabited
Europe, and the world stands
aghast at the number of hu-
man lives that have been
sacrificed, and thei >ns< qui D
tial suffei ing, misery, want
and distress, thi idows and
Orphans, ::m\ the maimed
will be a burden under which
this oltJ world will groan foi
many, man;,- ^ears t 1 come;
and the money expended up-
on this enormous sacrifice; of
human life, the horrible cata-
logue of entailed misery; the
enormous destruction of ma-
terial property, amounts to
figures winch the ordinary
human mind cannot compre-
hend.
And yet, and yet the war
is not ended, and there must
be another year, probably
two of the same experien e
except that in the coming
year tin war will be fought
with greater fury, greater
sacrifice of human life, greater
destruction of material pro-
perty.
The nation that falters will
go under, God forbid that it
should be England.
Hut to maintain her own
and to attain to victory, evei J
citizen of the greatest Empire
of the world whether he^be
blanched by the snows of
Canada, or ebonized bv the
sun of Africa must stand up
for Britain and be "Ready,
aye ready" to make all the
sacrifices already made and
more, whether personal ser-
vice, money or material. "Kn
gland expects that every man
this day will dp his duty."
l'he call comes to each and
all of you individually.
Tomorrow two great meet-
ings' will be held in our city
a religious and a civil 1
both will be mi I ings of sei i-
ous import.
At St. Andn ws Hall mi et-
ing however it will be seen
how far our loyalty pati 1
ti-.m goi -, whether it begins
with the singing of Mule Bri-
tannia and ends with the
singing of (Jod save the king.
