It really seems as if our Salonika forces arc beginning to strike in earnest at the Bulgarians. If we can soon get to work on this front plight of Austria-Hungary will be even more serious than it is now. The victorious Russians continue to deliver s ledge-hammei blows at the ill-assorted Dual Monarchy, which will find it hard to keep from crumbling under the violence of the Russian and Italian assail ants. But red ruin would be very speedy if her Bulgarian bulwark were knocked away. Apart, however from the menace from S llonika, a sen sational collapse of Austria Hungary is by no means an impossibility of the near fu ture. The old time longing of Hungary for national in dependence might at any time find expression in efh" cient action. Mr. Sidney Washburn, the Times cor IW Armbristcr, E. Smith and D.

Quite a number of letters reached here yesterday from Ragged Island from OUR BOYS who left here on Saturday the 5th for the front, via Jamaica—and although they had quite a prolonged and" rough trip, thus far—we avo| lha „ 1( ;i( lion ()f preciate it if contributors, ih Government in establishing when removing stamps from Quarantine against Infantile! envelope or r Hess on every point which he has considered, and Ins careful diagnosis, outline of treatment, and prognosis are to be, and must he highly appreciated by every one of any intelligence 'Iis appeal to us individually is most earnest and evidences his intense interest Loth from %  medical as wall BV an economic point of view. The unite. I ,,,tion ol Government and people are Strongly urged, and it is certain that an absolute atten tion to the prophylactic 1. jsures which should be r.dopted, and emphatically insisted upon, will most assuredly, undei Pro valence, secure to u* nearly ab solute immunity. The I ioveru inent has taken up their pait of the responsibility in imp. s ing Quarantine, and judging from our past experience, and present knowledge, I do noi doubt that it will riot be /.

I)> not act in such a way as to suggest antagonism on your part. Do not forget that the powers that arerespnn sible for the health of the com munitv in general, are human beings like to yourselves, with families also ; and will they be forgetful of themselves and thos %  dear to them ? And the answer is No The article on Infantile Para fysis in the Guardian of the I3th inst and Dr. Hess's letter are at the two poles—the one, rather cold, and the other, boil ing hot. It is doubtful if at the present rate of p unenger traffic, the Quarantine Station lias a capa city equal to meet theemergi 1 cy of Quarantine for all, but il must be remembered that if the germs of the disease were not incubated within the period of Q i.iraniine, there would be a release of thos,passengers, and it could hardly be possible for the Black Hole of Calcutta to be re enacted at Nassau. At present, there is no Infantile Paralysis, so far as I know. reported elsewhere than in New York, i. e., in other stale*of the Union. Should that contingen cy occur in any ol them, then it must be met in absolutely the same way —By Quarantine. There is one suggestion by Dr. I h-ss however which | can not accept. He asks, 'Do yo'j realize what it would mean if New York, Havana, and Mexl co, were to declare a Quanta tine against the Bahamas ?" Of course, every intelligent person d>es. hut.

What drew big naya construction program t | lose tears? the. fairest, vat me, still leads the world in build M ddest of all sights, man in his merchantmen, according to|ignorance, ignorance of his end, of his opportunities, of his dan gers l POINT I. Jerusalem was a fair type of a human soul, fair iu its beauty, but ignorant : i. Of its true future. It was to be the mother of nations as teaching to His Apostles in the last chapters of S John was of the "via unitiva" the need of abiding in Him. POINT 111. Vet again that City, like the Soul, was ignorant of the dangers that threat ened it : i. The enemy at the gates, which our Lord foresaw and foretold, seemed so far off; so how little we realize the near ness to us of our spiritual foes ii. Its own helplessness. Had it not strong walls? had it not sui ressfully resisted many sieges ? often withstood Strong enemies.' So sometimes we think that because we have broken the bonds of old templatiops, we shall never be really conquered. 11 i. The eternity of its loss. Jerusalem had had its reverses before, but they had been but temporary, the longest, the Captivity in Babylon, for sev enty years. Eighteen hundred years have passed, but there has been no resurrection for the Jew. How little we grasp what the possibility of eternal loss means CONCLUSION'. The sen tenet on Jerusalem, written by the Hand of (ion, was "they kiie.'e not the time of their visitation." Gon grant it may not be written by the recording angel as the Story of your soul. (A. G.

Lansdowne and

The Irish question has long

be a prospect of a settlement of
Irish affairs that all parties
could accept, a new crisis ilnea-

conflict between the Marquis of
Lansdowne and Mr. John Ued-
mond. Misunderstandings as to
the precise character of the au
thority given to Mr. Lloyd
George, to arrange some temp-
orary scheme, have led to the
resignation of Lord Selbomt.
This break in the ranks of the
Coalition Government is regret

what would be caused by the

The fortunes of war still
are going in favour of the
Allies. The initiative still re-
mains with us. It really seems
as if our Salonika forces arc
beginning to strike in earn-
est at the Bulgarians. If we
can soon get to work on this
front plight of Austria-Hun-
gary will be even more ser-
ious than it is now. The vic-
torious Russians continue to
deliversledge-hammei blows
at the ill-assorted Dual Mon-
archy, which will find it
hard to keep from crumbling
under the violence of the
Russian and Italian assail
ants. But red ruin would be
very speedy if her Bulgarian
bulwark were knocked away.
Apart, however from the
menace from S llonika, a sen
sational collapse of Austria
Hungary is by no means an
impossibility of the near fu
ture. The old time longing
of Hungary for national in
dependence might at any
time find expression in efh"
cient action. Mr. Sidney

ing from Bethany had just turn

the Mount of Olives, and what

gers l
POINT I. Jerusalem was a
fair type of a human soul, fair
iu its beauty, but ignorant :
i. Of its true future. It was
to be the mother of nations as
teaching to His Apostles in the
last chapters of S John was of
the "via unitiva" the need of
abiding in Him.
POINT 111. Vet again that
City, like the Soul, was ignor-
ant of the dangers that threat
ened it :
i. The enemy at the gates,
which our Lord foresaw and
foretold, seemed so far off; so
how little we realize the near
ness to us of our spiritual foes !
ii. Its own helplessness. Had
it not strong walls? had it not
sui ressfully resisted many sie-
ges ? often withstood Strong
enemies.' So sometimes we
think that because we have
broken the bonds of old temp-
latiops, we shall never be real-
ly conquered.
11 i. The eternity of its loss.
Jerusalem had had its reverses
before, but they had been but
temporary, the longest, the
Captivity in Babylon, for sev
enty years. Eighteen hundred
years have passed, but there has
been no resurrection for the
Jew. How little we grasp what
the possibility of eternal loss
means !
CONCLUSION'. The sen
tenet on Jerusalem, written by
the Hand of (ion, was "they
kiie.'e not the time of their visita-
tion." Gon grant it may not
be written by the recording an-
gel as the Story of your soul.

THE UNTIRING ENERGY
of the Woo' is proverbial. Practically no energy is
required where Sunlight Soap is employed. Sunlight
Soap is energy itself. The Wolf is the enemy of
mankind;
SUNLIGHT SOAP
is the enemy of all dirt. It is the friend of the house-
wife, and is made for her
profit. To the housewife it
means less labour, less dirt,
more leisure, and time and
money saved. Sunlight
J
Soap does away with need-
li rubbing and scrubbing,
and so preserves the clothes.
