The Democratic Soldier.
THE Australian troops in
Flanders have a reputa
tion for eccentric military de-
portment. English comedy pro-
bably exaggerates the behavior
of these colonials, affectionate-
ly but the Australians are dis
tinctive or there would be no
basis for the comment. Their
personal independence is noted
even where Canadians have pre
pared English militarists to
look for an individualism not
strictly in beeping with military
theories.
It is said of the Australians
that they obey singificant orders
as well as any martinet could
wish, but that their disregard
for the aristocracy of war is
complete. It is related that an
English colonel complained to
Gen, Bird wood of the Austra-
lian contingent that a sentry
had failed to salute him. The
general said it was not uncom-
mon foWhe men to fail to sa-
lute him.
lie said he had approached
a sentry one day and had been
amused to note that the soldier
merely stared at him curiously
and made no in >vement to ack-
nowledge his piescnce. A shell
came along and the sentrv call-
ed out. "Duck Birdie!" The
outraged colonel asked what
the general had dons. "I duck-
ed,'' said Bird wood.
England Amuses itself with
these stories of the Australians.
A drawer of cALics represented
an Australian crfffciiel imploring
his men to make a show of dis-
cipline and military bearing for
an English inspector who was
descending upon them. He end-
L'ed his appeal with : "And for
the Lord's sake don't call me
AIM"
Possibly the military qualities
of thejJAustralians, which are re-
pitted to be of a high order, are
not bettered by the disregard
of certain conventions, but the
interesting point is that the Aus-
tralasians are the only people
in the Biilish empire who have
a 5)stem of uuiveisal military
sei v ice.
When the British empiie en
lered the war the Australasians
were the only citizens in the
empire who had submitted
to compulsion. The opponents
of Conscription when defeated
on other arguments say that
it breaks down a demociacy
and establishes caste; that it
deprives the individual of self-
respect and independence.
The parts of the British em
pire which have conscription
produce soldiers whose conduct
outrages convention and amazes
the militarists of the English
free will system
An army commanding theser
vices of all of the people of a
nation reflects the spirit of the
nation. An army does not make
a national spirit ; it merely ex
presses it. A democratic nation
will have a democratic army
Conscription merely makes the
military system just andefficient
Conscription in a free people
enslaves no one, merely treats

Humours of
Surrenders-
There were the same stories,
some pitiable, some absurh, of
the Germans' behaviour on sur
rendering. One major who was
taken said that he hoped he
would be allowed to have his
servant with him, as the servant
was surrendering with the next
batch Another German fel|
on his knees and offered his'
captor a j mark note if he would
spare his life. "And I hadn't the
heart, when 1 took the note,"
said his captor, "to tell him that
it wasn't worth threepence!"
A batch of five prisoners pressed
their watches in unison on the
private to whom they surrender
cd.
The same kind of thing hap
pens in almost every operation
for the German soldier still be
lieves that the British will kill
him if he is captured, and still
lias a hazy notion that perhaps j
he can buy his life with such
valuables as he has about him.
When one sees the same prison
ers a few days later, well fed
and decently tieated, the in
crease in their self confidence is
amazing.
'Take No Prisonlrs-"
German Orders To Kill All
British.
Several times in my despatches
I have made quotations from
letters found no German prison
ers or from diaries it; their pOS
Session. Here is an extraorclin
arily interesting extract from a
letter written by a man of the
Xllltli Corps, show ing not only
the sufferings of the German
soldiers in this battle, but also
the fact that they have been
ordered not to take prisoners.
There can be no question raised
as to the authenticity of the
document : -
Now, for the first time, we
are really in the war; before it
must have been child's play.
We are on the Somme and, in
deed, not in the best part, hut
in a very exposed posit ion."AYe
were relieved on the 12th (eight
days and nine nights ago), and,
unfortunately, we leave here to
night at an hour not fixed, in
spite of our numerous sick men,
who mul also go with us. The
whole division, in fact the whole
corps, has diarrhoea, but what
can you expect after eight days
without hot food ? _
We have been parched with
thirst and lie incoldeaith holes
at night. The whole battlefield
was full of dead, and there was
a great heat during the day. We
are, indeed, no longer men, enly
as it were.half-livingcreatures.
And now we have been three
days in rest able to drink noth-
ing but dear wine. Our depar-
ture was concealed from us. We
have lost so many comrades,
who fell in the tight days or
were wounded, and now we
have to go up to the line again.
We have here real English in
front of us now, and have orders
to take no prisoners, but to (its
patch them nil with the bayo tl.
That would not be so bad, but
they always get prisoners from
us, too, and what would they
then do with them? Here the
English shoot at us steadily day
ami night uninterrupted gun
fire, causing so many casualties.
Then they always attack again
and always make a fresh at
tempt, in spite of their heavy
losses.
There lie in the Delville Wood
winch we and the English have
occupied, thousands of dead.
And the number of flies and the
smell! . These days 1
shall never forget in my life
what we had to endure there.
One would hardly think it pos
sible what men can endure.
Many letters taken give equally
Bgoaizing pictures of the suffer
ings and losses of the enemy,
and this is by no means the first
which ha* specifically mention
edjordenjin regard to taking no
prisoners.

Thursday, September 28 1916.
Berlin said in July that
our offensive on the Somme
had ended. 0,i the contra
ry, it seems to be gathering
momentum. One thing that
strikes us above everything
is the remorseless and syste-
matic way in which the push
has been kept up from th
beginning of July until now.
It is evident that the new
armoured ears, with their
power of wriggling their
way over hedges and ditches,
shell craters and trench par-
apets, will help to accelerate
our advance. The capture
of Combles, together with
the forward move which just
preceded it, is a magnificent
piece of work and bids fair
to lay the foundations for
still more brilliant work.
The war correspondents no-
tice the cheerful spirit of the
men, and their confidence in
the leadership and in the
arrangements made for sup-
plying them with needful
things. This means much
for a 1 army on the offensive
and in the end will help to

To the Editor of The N$u> York
1 lines;
As the citizens of the United
Mates are now lending to Great
Britain large sums, secured not
only by good faith, but now b\
ample collateral, why would 11
not be n clever notion to iug
gest to the borrower that in-
stead of furthei borrowing, she
sell something (that she reallj
doesn't need) for either cash 01
profitable exchange ?
Why, for instance, shouldn't
we offer to purchase and paj
foi Jamaica, British Honduras,
the little island) of the Carib-
bean and even British Guiana,
and the islands of Bermuda ?
Mich a b irgain would inlvi
almost completely the difficult
problem ofMnnroeism," would
shift entirelj upon us the burden
of policing the Western Hemis
ohce, and ('without wounding
her vanity) supply a need w Inch
;:t the present moment Great
Britain sorely feels- -rea.lv
money.

THE
UNTIRING
ENERGY
of the Wo Li- 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
Soap does away with need- ,
less rubbing and scrubbing,
and so preserves the clothes.
