Lei us bear in mind that the Prussian is a brute and that lie encourages brutality in nations that are in league with him. We knew him for a savage when we found out his doings in the invasion of Belgium. This horrible impression of him became more painful when the Lusitania went down and when Edith Cnvell was done to death. Now comes the murder of Captain Fryait to keep the painful memory green and to warn us against compounding with so ferocious an antagonist. As to the effect of such conduct on the Allies of the Prussian : Do not forget that in time of peace the wicked Sultan "Abdul the Damned" could massacre the Armenians time after time because that Hohenzollern brute The Kaiser was behind him. During this War, the cruel Turk has felt free to slaughter Armenians on a larger scale than ever because his Teutonic ally was cynically at the back of him. We have also seen a pamphlet containing the translation of a series of articles published in an Arab Journal in Egypt. This pamphlet tells us that the Syrians, both Moslem and Christian, are being done to death by starvation and persecution through the policy of the Young Turks, who want to make the Turkish nation dominant, not only in influence but in numbers in the Turkish Empire.

Until about a year ago the sisal planters sold their crop either to American manufactur STS, who converted it into twine or to American brokeib and job bets, from whom il was bought by the manufacturers. But about a year ago tha Government of the State of Yucatan established a Government monopoly ol this product of the Stale.

Mending The Broken Soldier.
Our Debt to
ilie Surgeon.
By invitation of Sir Alfred
Kaogh, Director General of tlie
Army Medical Service, a repre
sentative of 'I lie \iiius lias vi-
sited half a dozen of the great
London military hospitals. 1 he
impression left hy such a tour
upon the laymanI mind is that
the public have an utterly in
adequate idea of the debt the\'
owe to modern surgery at a time
like tins. Day by day the sur
ge >ns are giving the nation new
men f >r old. II i e-y are doing
m ne than would have been ere
dibit 2<> \iaara ago to rob war of
its ultimate horior.
Out of hundreds of wonderful
cases it is oossible to describe
a few that may be taken as ty
pica I < Soldiers. Take first the new mi
ve surgery. Hereiso man with
a bullethole neat Ills collarbone
which severed the nerve control
ling the miMclea of hit wrist,
The result was "wrist drop,"
and hand winch, until quite re
cently, Would have been regard
d as incurably useless. The two
ends of the severed nerve have
been freed from what already
become no more than a scar,
they have been reunited, and
there is every prospect that in
less than a twelvemonth the
hand will be-almost as good as
ever. "As simple as tying up the
two ends of a cut telephone
wire.'' Bays the surgeon who op
crated.
There ap." more remarkable
nerve case*, still. A man had
part of his arm shot away, car
rying with it four inches of the
nerve necessary to control the
hand movement^. I'he urgenn
ran'* up several hospitals on the
telephone till he heard of what
he wanted the amputation that
afti moon of a healthy lunb hap
pened to be a leg, and it was
amputated at 3.30 in the after
noon. No sooner was it off than
four or five inches of practically
living nerve weie removed Irom
the calf, placed in a saline bath
and rushed by taxicab to the
oilier hospital. Here the pa
tient was already under an an
aesthetic. The wound in his
arm was opened with the lancet,
the ends of the indispensible
nerve quickly found and the
circuit re established, as it were
by means of the first patient's
four inches of filament. To day
the man is in a fair way to re
gaining Ihe full use of his hand.
Disfigured Packs Restored.
Some of the most cruel wounds
are those in the jaw. The dis
ligureinent is often horrible,
speech and mastication are eq
ually impossible. So the sur
gcons have found a means (in
volving the wearing for many
weeks of what looks like a
strange double set of raise teeth)
of gradually piessing back the
remains of the jaw into their
natural position, of restoring
motion and flexibility to the
lips, and of smoothing out the
most gristly of the scars.
Where the injury is to the up
per part of the face, resulting
in, say, the removal of the nose
and one eye. magical results are
being achieved in n south west
ern district hospital by the pro
vision of masks perfectlv count
erfeiting the losl section of the
physiognomy"? Lieutenant Der
went Wood, A.R.A., is the in
ventor of the plan With the
help of photographs of what a
patient was like before being
wounded, he will make a false
nose of silvered copper, artisti-
cally paint* d to malt h the sur- I harmless that a patient can re-
roundiog complexion, which}main under it lor two hours,
will so far defy detection as to, yet smoke a cigarette in com
enable the o\\ ner io go oat into fort within a quarter of an hour
the world again without shrink-
ing, and [day his old part in
the affaire of men. To do that
is to c tate value for the nation
in the truest sense.
In this war the variety of sep-
sis that has claimed more vic-
tims than any other is that
known in doctor's slang as "gas
gangrene." Cias gangrene is cant',
ed by the preset e in Wound of
(< 1 lam types ol bacilli classed as
"anaerobii ;.., bailli w hick
c.uiiiot live in air, the vital prin
ciple of which is oxygen. They
exist (like the tetanus bacillus)
in cultivated soil, and it is be-
cause the war is being fought in
I'ranee among the peasants'
I Ms that they are introduced
mi constantly by ricocheting
I .!!.'..,... j, .apsof I "i i!i .>'! .hi.
ed clothing, into the wounds
of OUT Soldiers. Once there they
set about producing tiny gas
bubbles among the tissues, hence
the name ''gas gangrene." But
gas they cannot endure is oxy-
pen mid the obvious way to des-
tiny them is to introduce oxy-
gen into the innermost recesses
of the wound This is secured
by various methods according
to the nature of the injury. A
hole right through the should
er will be sterilized by the use
of a wick drawing peroxide of
hydrogen from a small tank
aboVe the bed. Another kind of
wound will be sprayed with
ozone, and a third more con
veni ntly dealt with by
means of a perforated tube fed
with oxygen gas from a cylind-
er.
It would be possible to write
of many other marvelsof the
man who had a piece of sbrap
nel three-quarters of an inch
square taken out of the back of
his heart, while it lay beating
in the Surgeon's hand ; of the

FIWiWdm.yt September 14.1916
If this Colony is to con-
tinue to do its part in this,
great War. it is necessary
that we continue to keep be
fore our minds the ruthless
nature of our enemy and the
consequent necessity that we
do our utmost to secure our-
selves find tha world at large
from his sinister dominion.
Lei us bear in mind that the
Prussian is a brute and that
lie encourages brutality in
nations that are in league
with him. We knew him for
a savage when we found out
his doings in the invasion of
Belgium. This horrible im-
pression of him became more
painful when the Lusitania
went down and when Edith
Cnvell was done to death.
Now comes the murder of
Captain Fryait to keep the
painful memory green and to
warn us against compound-
ing with so ferocious an an-
tagonist. As to the effect of
such conduct on the Allies of
the Prussian : Do not for-
get that in time of peace the
wicked Sultan "Abdul the
Damned" could massacre the
Armenians time after time
because that Hohenzollern
brute The Kaiser was behind
him. During this War, the
cruel Turk has felt free to
slaughter Armenians on a
larger scale than ever be-
cause his Teutonic ally was
cynically at the back of him.
We have also seen a pamph-
let containing the translation
of a series of articles publish-
ed in an Arab Journal in
Egypt. This pamphlet tells
us that the Syrians, both
Moslem and Christian, are
being done to death by star-
vation and persecution
through the policy of the
Young Turks, who want to
make the Turkish nation
dominant, not only in influ-
ence but in numbers in the
Turkish Empire. Now let w
ask ourselves what would b<
the effect on the world il
Prussian frightfulness were
spread still father, through
an extension of Prussian
power We may depend upon
it that this bully must be
crushed, and we must raise
money for relief of suffering,
and Keep up our drafts of
Mien till this horrid menace
becomes a thing of the past.

It is hard to select any parti
cular item on the Progianiine
for special mention where the
level of excellence both of
choice and of execution was
so high, but the prime favour
ite seemed to be a piece by
Schumann, though Reetho
van's Sonata No 14, a Noc-
turne by Chopin, nnd some
more modern selections from
JR. Campbell ran it close in
popiibn esteem. We sincerely
hope that the Reverend (ien

light us again and that right
soon!

The Administration
and the Sisal
Monopoly-
About eighty per cent of the
world's Supply of sisal hemp
comes from Yucatan, Mexico,
Sisal hemp is used almost en
tirely in the making of hinder
twine, the curd with which the
farmers of the I'nilcd States
fasten into sheaves most of their
.rain crops. In ordinary times
the world can count on an out
put of about 130.no'> hales of
sisal hemp annually from Ger
man Bast Africa, which is the
largest source of sisal after Vu
s^tfst
catan, but at present the T.tfst
African output of this commud'
lty is unavailable owing to the
war.
Until about a year ago the
sisal planters sold their crop
either to American manufactur
STS, who converted it into twine
or to American brokeib and job
bets, from whom il was bought
by the manufacturers. But about
a year ago tha Government of
the State of Yucatan established
a Government monopoly ol this
product of the Stale. This Com
mission has had the support of
a group of rVfnericau bankers,
and has required all the grow eis
of sisal in Yi catan to turn over
tiiaii praduci { it under martial
law. This product the Regale
dora, as it is commonly called
then telli directly to American
manufacturers from the Com
mission's offtca in New York
City, thus eliminating American
brokers and middlemen from
their former share in the trans
action.
Very soon after the establish
meat of this Government mo
nopoly complaints against it
were heard in thiscouniry. both
from these eliminated middle
men and from the International
Harvester Company and the
Plymouth Cordage Company,
two Concerns which prior to tba
establishment of tha Yucatan
Government monopoly had con
trolled about sixty five or seven
ty percent of the output of he
nequen. The complaint! Pgefast
the Regllladora have been, in
general, twofold: Fiist, it was
s,.id that the Reguladora was
8 monopoly in vest mint of trade
and that its operations in this
country through its titW York of
jice and through its affiliated Am
erican bankers constituted a vto
lation 0/ the anti trust laws of the
\juited Stafttt. Secondly, it has
been charged that le rapid
increase in the price of sisal
since the Reguladora control
has been almost entirely ar-
bitrary, and has bien mainly
unjustified by economic con-
ditions. Certainly it is a
fact that the farmers of the
United States, as a result of
this increase in the ruice of
sisal hemp, were this year
forced to pay at lcasi/4,ooo
000 more for their binder
twine than they paid last
vear, and that if the still fur-
ther increase in ptire which
the Reguladora has recently

announced"Wmainlained the
American farmers will be sub-
jected to an additional ex-
pense of about $10,000,000
next ye*r.
As a result of the com
plaints against this monopo
ly, sub-committee of tlie Un-
ited States Senate Committee
on^rgriculture and Forestry
began an investigation of the
Reguladora last February.
I his Committee, after a num
bpr March, reconvened in April,
and readjourned in that same
month. Many witnesses were
examined by this Com
mittse and a vast amount of
evidence was heard. Vet no
report has been made.

Vienna admits a further with-

Heavy fighting continues in Do-

small infantry engagements along
the entire Danube front, but in
neither region has any important
change of position taken place.
On the eastern front, according

Athens, Via London, 11."If
the Entente and auti Venazelot
factions can only keep quiet for
ten days and not embroil the
situation Greece's entry into the
war will be a settled fact"' said
a prominent Greek oflicial to a
representative of the Associated
Press. "If not", be said, "It is
the and of Greece.*'
Kinu Constantin and Premier
ZanaiS conlerred at lentb to
day. On the whole the situation
with regard to Greece's entry
into the war on the side of the
Entente seems favourable not
withstanding the arrest lastSun
day and Monday by Anglo
French secret police of German
and Austrian agents against
which Premier Zamais vigorous
ly protested and despite com
plicity of the French in the dis
affection of the 11 th Greek divi
sion at Saloniki which profond
ly shocked the Greek public and
seriously endangered the neg
otiations in progress.
The mere suggestion of the
possibility of King Constantin
commanding the Allies armies
in Macedonia however seems to
over ride every hesitation.
A despatch to the Paris Temps
from Saloniki says that tlie rev
olutionary movement is active
at Verria where Captain Bart-
zocas has announced to General
Cardonnier commanding the
troops his intention of fight
iug with the Entente Allies.
The battalion commander a
Verria has also announced that
bis battalion will participate in
the movement. Those events
are part of a rapidly moving
plan for the formation of a
Greek army for national de
fense. Numerous volentecrs for
this army are arriving from re
mote islands and regionsofOld
(ireece. The recruits are equip
ped with khaki uniforms and
sent to a camp a few miles out
side the city.

is east of the Baupame-Pe
ronne road which was cut in
yesterday's drive. This cap
ture apparently clinches
French possession of the, main
highway to Peronne.
The French advance is one
of the most important made
in any single operation since
the Somme offensive began.
The Zamais cabinet of
Greece is out of office with
the acceptance of itsresigna
tion by King Constantin. It
is regarded in many quarters
as being Greece's entry into
the war on the side of the
Allies.
