Zhc tribune Saturday. September iO 1916. As the New York papers come to hand our news concerning the more recent advancesof the British on the bom me becomes more full and more cheering. It seems that when our troops took that German third line position known as the Danube trench and those apparently impregnable places Courcelette and Martiiipuich, the eagerness of the men and the success of the new armoured cars caused many positions to be taken ahead of schedule time. In one instance, a commanding officer tried to stop his men by standing on a small hillock exposed to enemy fire and furiously blowing signals on a bugle, but the men went forward and took the ground they were afier and held it too! Accounts of the terror struck into the hearts of the Bosches by the "Tank" cars grow as fresh reports come in. We are told that a column of German prisoners passing a car facetiously named"Creme de Menthe", which was resting from its labours, exclaimed : "Will we ever forget our first sight of the thing as it came out of the morning mist! It isn't war. It is butchery." To which a British officer replied "II isquite peaceable and tame now. It has just been fed. As for its being war, it is quite in keeping with the Hague Convention, which the gas attack at Ypres was not." A German officer remarked, "We fired at a Tank with our rifles. Our machine guns turned loose on it. But the bullets were only blue sparks on the armour. We thought the British slow and stupid, Jes pite their courage and stub bornness, and they gave us a surprise this time." —:— "OUR DAY" We have been requested by the Governor to state that His Excellency has invited •tne Clergymen oT the differ ent denominations to have an "Our Dav' Sunday on the aand October—where this date is convenient—and has suggested that the offer tories be devoted to the Bri tish Red Cross Society.

Dear Sir:— I noticed in the columns of your interesting little journal a few days ago that a respected citizen of Nassau had been knocked down and injured by a cyclist who was riding at night without a light. The severe strictures which you uttered with regard to civilians flying around on bicycles at night without lights, were both timely and necessary, and I am sure met with universal approval. When, however, you ventured to criticise the action of the policemen who ride without lights, it seems to nit that you are"talking through your hat." Policemen, Mr. Editor, in the prosecution of their many duties undertaken in the pub lie interest, often find it ex pedient, nay necessary to cover the ground quickly, si lently, and unobtrusively. In these days of "Bonnet Men", "Neptunes", and other terrors that stalk abroad at night, it would be the gross est stupidity for the custo dian of the peace to adver tise his whereabouts or ap proach by showing a light. Our Police force was never more efficient, or better offi cered than now, and I think that we cannot do better in future than to reserve our criticisms till we know all the facts.

Apparently authentic rumours had been circulated that the Bremen sailed early in August hence feais were entertained in some quarters that something had gone wrong with her and the report of her arrival has been greeted by the news papers as paving the way for the establishment of a regular submarine service between Germany and theUoited States and at answering the alleged taunt of Germanys ene mies when the submarine Deuishcland returned home from her vovagc ovearseas—"You cant do 'it again*". Captain fewartzkopf who was for a long time in the service of the North German Lloyd Company is in command of the Bremen Washington, 37:—Japans proposals to renew after the European war her contention for the right of her people to emigrate to and to own land in the United States sug gested in New York yesterday by Baron Yoshirosaktani former Finance Minister at Tokoi was frankly admitted today at the Japanese Embassy. Negotiations over these questions which came to a deadlock two years ago are regard ed by Japan, it was explained, as merely postponed while the larger issues of the war are being dealt with The deadlock followed a lone series of conferences between former Secretary Bryan and Baron Chinda, Japanese Ambassador. Japan closed the exchange of notes saying that her complaint had not been answered and reserving for the present further discussion of the issue.

Berlin:— Chancellor Von Bethmann Hollweg informed the reichstag today that Germany would persevere until victory was hers. He declared that this years harvest made Germanys position much more secure than last year. He said that Great Britain was breaking one international law after another and was, above all, Germanys most egotistical, fiercest and most obstinate enemy. He stated that the Entente Allies could not break through the German lines in the Sonime region anil that Russia was in the same condition on the eastern front. The chancellor said that the old King of Koumania's death resulted from mental excitement because "Roumania betrayed her allies."

THE LOVE OF CHRIST A Sermon for the sixteenth Sunday after Trinity. Ephesians III, 17 19. "That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith ; that ye being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to rompiehend with all Saints what is the length and depth and height; and to know the love of Christ, which pasSeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." Human love ithe greatest and most powerful thing in the world. But when our human love is united to Divine Love it is truly wonderful. Such is the love described by St. Paul in this text—the love of Christ. I. First, the apostle prays that the Ephesian Christians; which cannot understand it, but by spiritual experience. This is what he means by "being rooted and grounded in love." Plenty of nominal Christian* know all about Christ's life and words but they have not tins root of love in themselves They have net that living, loving fai'.h here spoken of. The Apostle uses two words to ex press his meaning "rooted" and "grounded". He means that if we have the right kind of love our faitli will be like the roots which go deep down and obtain nourishment for (the life of the tiee. Or, we shall be like a house built on the firm Pock, which is Christ. The roots of our soul are its intellect or mind and its affections. Our intellect learns and grasps the facts about our holy religion which are preserved in the creeds of the Church. We assent to them as true. But the mind is not the only root, there are our affections, and they reach out lovingly and draw into the heart full supplies of "the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ." II. Secondly, the Apostle prays that we may share this love and knowledge "with all saints," because it is this wonderful divine and human love, (united in Christ) which is the secret bond of that Christian brotherhood which we call "1 he Communion of Saints," Some men of learning have thought that St. Paul is here taking, as his illustration, the celebrated temple of Diana at Epliesus, which was famous for its magnificent proportions of breadlh, length, depth and height and he is pointing out how infinitely perfect and grand is the Christ love-like a great temple in its stateliness and beauty. |uch a love hiis never been shown by any other man, because in Jesus Christ almje was the perfection of our hu man affections. Only Gods saints can comprehend this love of Christ. W It is a meaningless thing to other people. Perhaps St. Paul, who was learned in the Old,Testament Scriptures, had in mind those impressive words in the Book of Job. where Zophar says "Canst thou by searching find out God ? Canst thou find out the Almighty uAto perfection ? It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell, what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea In a word the love of aber put it to their own small notion of divine love. As !• it— "The love of lod is larger than the measure of our mind." Indeed the same Apostle says that Gods love pussetli knowledge, and yet so powerful is God's grace imparted to His Saints that they are said tube able to comprehend it. III. Then the text takes us into a mystery deeper still, (for there are depths in the Bible like the great ocean in their vast profoundly). After this attempt to describe in words the Love of Christ, the Apostle continues "That ye might be filled with all the fulness of God." How can this be ? Vet, when we ponder, we become aware that only God can satis fy the cravings of the soul. "My sou! is a thirst for God" says the Psalmist. So St. Paul prays that this loilgiag after God in their hearts may be ful ly satisfied. Of course it is : quite impossible for any human soul to contain "all the fulness of God" just as it is equally im possible to attain to God's per faction, although Our Lord said "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in hea ven is perfect." But Our Lord is speaking of the perfection of Love which is the bond of union between God and man, and St. Paul has, no doubt, the same thought in his mind. use. Vinegar ?s. 6d. per "iotties.

THREE CENTS Serbs and Bulgarians Face to Face BY A SERBIAN OFFICER. W HEN we received the order to advance towards the old SerboGreek frontier the soldiers were delighted. "I feel as if I were setting out for home," they said to one another. The magnificent valley of the Moglcnitza, a green plain surrounded by wooded hills on the west and east, and high rocky mountains to the north, remind ed us of our native land. We occupied this valley, while the Bulgarians held the commanding positions in the Moglena Mountains on the north. These were what we had to take, and thus ensure the possession of our valley. Hardly had the Serbians tak en possession of this line, and before they had time to rest, than they had to defend these new positions against the attacks of the Bulgarians lately reinforced and sent to regain the lost ground. It was specially in forcing back the enemy in a s'.ubborn and bloody fight that the Serbian soldier has shown his old warlike qualities. Seeing this time that he had his old enemies the Serbs before him, the exasperated Bulgarian, withdrawing pace by pace in a hand-to hand conflict, cried out, "Are you still living, Serbian beast?" or, impudently, like a Tartar savage, "We don't want you, we prefer your gipsy mo thers and sisters at home I" One reply only was made—that of a cartridge. BULGARIAN SURPRISE ATTACK. The first day of the battle was on Mount Kovil. The morning was clear and sunny. Before dawn a Serbian company that had spent the night nt an outpost situated on a hill of the same mountains withdrew in reserve. At the same moment the company that had remained in the trench to defend the hill was covered with fire from the Bulgarian artillery ; shrapnel was falling like hail, the rifles were cracking, chipping pieces off the rocky stones on all sides. In a few seconds the two hills where our trenches were situat ed were absolutely on ire with the bursting of shrapnel and explosive shells. The SerbianJ artillery had not yet arrived. The company started to with draw slightly and looked, for some shelter whilst continuing to fight the Bulgarians. In vain the officers called up on their men not to expose themselves too much. The Serbians ran in arflong the Bui garians, strangling them. They threw bombs, and when these failed, they threw big stones, and at times the battle became a hand to hand conflict. He roically they defended each step of ground, as they heard of the shooting of their com rades sent to their help on the other side of the mountain. "Forward the second compa ny !" shouted the new arrivals. "Don't be afraid, men of the third! Hold on till we arrive !" And they climbed up, out of breath, by the narrow and abrupt pathway, watching their comrades who were fighting above their heads. And up above the battle is sanguinary. The fighting is done at a few yards' distance. Bombs are used almost pntire ly. Private Dranimir Vesso vitch threw one on the chest of a Bulgaiian with a long black beard who advanced at the head of a small detachment. The bomb exploded and killed four Bulgarians ; the remainder fled. Dragomir Viditch was attacked by five of the. enemy ; he killed three ; the two others fled, but he himself remained wounded. This second company saved the third, which was almost completely encircled. The two Bulgarian flanks were beaten back towards their centre. Then the Serbian fire was directed almost exclusively towards the centre; the Bulgarians were falling in numbers, the field was covered with "stiffened ones," as the dead are called by the Serbian soldiers. Next day the fighting com meoced on the left wing. The Bulgarians made the first nt tempts to recapture the lost ground on this side of the front. Before dawn, protected by the darkness, the Bulgarians had approached our line and at dawn they made their attack on the Hill Katunetz with their usual shouts, "Hurrah!"' The silent Serbians allowed them to get almost up to their trenches And when they were near at band the Serbian fire began.The Bulgarians, taken aback by sur prise and the big losses they had sustained in a few seconds, with drew. The Serbians came out of their trenches and started to follow them up and took the greater part of the Bulgarians prisoners. The Serbian soldier were particularly anxious to know what kind of bread the Bulgar ian soldiers were eating, and they found that the "Kaiser's Bread" had a horrible taste. — The Times, Aug. 31, 1916' German Fury.

Pric*. THREE CENTS
Serbs and Bulgarians
Face to Face
By A Serbian Officer.
WHEN we received the
order to advance to-
wards the old SerboGreek fron-
tier the soldiers were delighted.
"I feel as if I were setting out
for home," they said to one
another.
The magnificent valley of the
Moglcnitza, a green plain sur-
rounded by wooded hills on the
west and east, and high rocky
mountains to the north, remind
ed us of our native land. We
occupied this valley, while the
Bulgarians held the command-
ing positions in the Moglena
Mountains on the north. These
were what we had to take, and
thus ensure the possession of
our valley.
Hardly had the Serbians tak
en possession of this line, and
before they had time to rest,
than they had to defend these
new positions against the at-
tacks of the Bulgarians lately
reinforced and sent to regain
the lost ground. It was spe-
cially in forcing back the ene-
my in a s'.ubborn and bloody
fight that the Serbian soldier
has shown his old warlike qual-
ities.
Seeing this time that he had
his old enemies the Serbs before
him, the exasperated Bulgarian,
withdrawing pace by pace in a
hand-to hand conflict, cried out,
"Are you still living, Serbian
beast?" or, impudently, like a
Tartar savage, "We don't want
you, we prefer your gipsy mo
thers and sisters at home I"
One reply only was madethat
of a cartridge.
Bulgarian Surprise Attack.
The first day of the battle
was on Mount Kovil. The
morning was clear and sunny.
Before dawn a Serbian company
that had spent the night nt an

same mountains withdrew in
reserve. At the same moment
the company that had remained

was covered with fire from the

was falling like hail, the rifles
were cracking, chipping pieces
off the rocky stones on all sides.

where our trenches were situat

the bursting of shrapnel and
explosive shells. The SerbianJ
artillery had not yet arrived.
The company started to with
draw slightly and looked, for
some shelter whilst continuing
to fight the Bulgarians.

on their men not to expose

threw bombs, and when these

and at times the battle became

roically they defended each

of the shooting of their com
rades sent to their help on the

"Don't be afraid, men of the
third! Hold on till we arrive !"
And they climbed up, out of
breath, by the narrow and
abrupt pathway, watching their
comrades who were fighting
above their heads.
And up above the battle is
sanguinary. The fighting is
done at a few yards' distance.
Bombs are used almost pntire
ly. Private Dranimir Vesso
vitch threw one on the chest of
a Bulgaiian with a long black
beard who advanced at the
head of a small detachment.
The bomb exploded and killed
four Bulgarians ; the remainder
fled. Dragomir Viditch was
attacked by five of the. enemy ;
he killed three ; the two others
fled, but he himself remained
wounded.

Saturday. September iO 1916.
As the New York papers
come to hand our news con-
cerning the more recent ad-
vances- of the British on the
bom me becomes more full
and more cheering. It seems
that when our troops took
that German third line posi-
tion known as the Danube
trench and those apparently
impregnable places Cource-
lette and Martiiipuich, the
eagerness of the men and the
success of the new armoured
cars caused many positions
to be taken ahead of sche-
dule time. In one instance,
a commanding officer tried
to stop his men by standing
on a small hillock exposed
to enemy fire and furiously
blowing signals on a bugle,
but the men went forward
and took the ground they
were afier and held it too!
Accounts of the terror struck
into the hearts of the Bos-
ches by the "Tank" cars grow
as fresh reports come in. We
are told that a column of
German prisoners passing a
car facetiously named"Creme
de Menthe", which was rest-
ing from its labours, exclaim-
ed : "Will we ever forget our
first sight of the thing as it
came out of the morning
mist! It isn't war. It is
butchery." To which a Bri-
tish officer replied "II isquite
peaceable and tame now. It
has just been fed. As for its
being war, it is quite in keep-
ing with the Hague Conven-
tion, which the gas attack at
Ypres was not." A German
officer remarked, "We fired
at a Tank with our rifles.
Our machine guns turned
loose on it. But the bullets
were only blue sparks on the
armour. We thought the
British slow and stupid, Jes
pite their courage and stub
bornness, and they gave us a
surprise this time."

The Editor "Tribune"
Nassau.
Dear Sir:
I noticed in the columns
of your interesting little
journal a few days ago that
a respected citizen of Nassau
had been knocked down and
injured by a cyclist who was
riding at night without a
light.
The severe strictures which
you uttered with regard to
civilians flying around on bi-
cycles at night without
lights, were both timely and
necessary, and I am sure met
with universal approval.
When, however, you ventur-
ed to criticise the action of
the policemen who ride with-
out lights, it seems to nit
that you are"talking through
your hat."
Policemen, Mr. Editor, in
the prosecution of their many
duties undertaken in the pub
lie interest, often find it ex
pedient, nay necessary to
cover the ground quickly, si
lently, and unobtrusively.
In these days of "Bonnet
Men", "Neptunes", and other
terrors that stalk abroad at
night, it would be the gross
est stupidity for the custo
dian of the peace to adver
tise his whereabouts or ap
proach by showing a light.
Our Police force was never
more efficient, or better offi
cered than now, and I think
that we cannot do better in
future than to reserve our
criticisms till we know all
the facts.
Yours Faithfully,
"UBIQUE."

Our free enjoyment of the skies ;
You fire blindly from below ;
We force you fiercely up the hills,

We are rising now, O Huns.
We are rising now, a nations tide,
And you must dig and wire and

Your turn at last beneath our gubs.
Your turn to find defences frai .

The great sea sweeps your barriers

You urge anew your claim on God,
But He is silent as you drown.

A SONG BEFORE
BATTLE.
o
Nothing could illustrate the
present feeling better than the
following verses by one of the
officers of the Rifle Brigade, a
man who hadalready won some-
thing of a name for himself at a
poet when this war broke out,
and had spent some eight
months in the trenches before
this battle began:
We, who have clung for long, long
months
To battered lines of knee deep mud,
Fixed targets for your slope set guns
Jo drench the ooze with British blood;
We, who have toiled through winter's
rain
With sandbag, shovel, plank, and
wire.
Revetting marshy parapets,
Building protection from your fire,
We have weapons now, O Huns,

The Tribune, Nassau, Saturday September 30,1916.
<#Rancourt drove their troops
forward and entered the St.
Pierre Vaast Wood. To the
south of this region from Bouch
avcsnes to the southern and of
3ois l'Abbe Farm French were
compelled to face a violent at
tack by the Germans which was
beaten off, the Germans being
thrown back in disorder, accord
ing to Paris.
The British gains included
German trenches on u front of
a. ooo yards north of Flers and
a strong redoubt on a hill 2,000
yards northeast of Thiepval.
To the nortwest across the
Ancre successful raids were
carried out by the British op
posite Beaument Hamel. 10.000
prisoners have fallen into the
hands of the British in the last
fortnight.
There is still hut little news
coming from the Russian and Aus-
tro German war offiresconcerning
the fighting in the enst. Berlin
however records the repulse of a
Russian attack in Galicia near
Ludo.
On the Roumanian front battles
are taking place at various points
near the Transylvania border. Uei-
hn reports for the Teutonic pro-
gress near Hermannstadt while
Bucharest chronicles the defeat of
the Teutons in the J m Valley and
their retreat to the north and north-
west.
Artillery duels continue along
most of the Austn-Italian front.
In the fighting in Asiatic Turkey
Petrograd claims successes for the
Russians along the Black Sea
Coast, in Armenia nearGiumicham
and on the 1'ersian border in the
vicinity of Hamadan.
What is to be the final attitudr
of Greece is still uncertain. The
latest report! from Athens however
is that the Greek government is in
accord with King Constantine and
has decided on militay co-opera-
tion with The Entente Allies.

Berlin:Chancellor Von Beth-

reichstag today that Germany
would persevere until victory
was hers. He declared that this
years harvest made Germanys
position much more secure than
last year.
He said that Great Britain
was breaking one international
law after another and was, above
all, Germanys most egotistical,
fiercest and most obstinate ene-
my.
He stated that the Entente
Allies could not break through
the German lines in the Sonime
region anil that Russia was in
the same condition on the east-
ern front.
The chancellor said that the
old King of Koumania's death
resulted from mental excitement
because "Roumania betrayed
her allies."

The Love of Christ
A Sermon for the sixteenth
Sunday after Trinity.
Ephesians III, 17 19. "That
Christ may dwell in your
hearts by faith ; that ye being
rooted and grounded in love,
may be able to rompiehend
with all Saints what is the
length and depth and height;
and to know the love of
Christ, which pasSeth know-
ledge, that ye might be filled
with all the fulness of God."
Human love i- the greatest
and most powerful thing in the
world. But when our human
love is united to Divine Love
it is truly wonderful.
Such is the love described by
St. Paul in this textthe love
of Christ.
I. First, the apostle prays
that the Ephesian Christians;
which cannot understand it, but
by spiritual experience. This
is what he means by "being
rooted and grounded in love."
Plenty of nominal Christian*
know all about Christ's life and
words but they have not tins
root of love in themselves They
have net that living, loving
fai'.h here spoken of. The
Apostle uses two words to ex
press his meaning "rooted" and
"grounded". He means that if
we have the right kind of love
our faitli will be like the roots
which go deep down and obtain
nourishment for (the life of the
tiee. Or, we shall be like a
house built on the firm Pock,
which is Christ. The roots of
our soul are its intellect or mind
and its affections. Our intellect
learns and grasps the facts about
our holy religion which are
preserved in the creeds of the
Church. We assent to them as
true. But the mind is not the
only root, there are our affec-
tions, and they reach out lov-
ingly and draw into the heart
full supplies of "the Grace of
our Lord Jesus Christ."
II. Secondly, the Apostle
prays that we may share this
love and knowledge "with all
saints," because it is this won-
derful divine and human love,
(united in Christ) which is the
secret bond of that Christian
brotherhood which we call
"1 he Communion of Saints,"
Some men of learning have
thought that St. Paul is here
taking, as his illustration, the
celebrated temple of Diana at
Epliesus, which was famous for
its magnificent proportions of
breadlh, length, depth and
height and he is pointing out
how infinitely perfect and grand
is the Christ love-like a great
temple in its stateliness and
beauty. |uch a love hiis never
been shown by any other man,
because in Jesus Christ almje
was the perfection of our hu
man affections. Only Gods
saints can comprehend this love
of Christ. W
It is a meaningless thing to
other people.
Perhaps St. Paul, who was
learned in the Old,Testament
Scriptures, had in mind those
impressive words in the Book
of Job. where Zophar says
"Canst thou by searching find
out God ? Canst thou find out
the Almighty uAto perfection ?
It is as high as heaven; what
canst thou do? deeper than hell,
what canst thou know? The
measure thereof is longer than
the earth, and broader than the
sea In a word the love of
aber put
it to their own small notion
of divine love. As !
it
"The love of lod is larger
than the measure of our mind."
Indeed the same Apostle says
that Gods love pussetli know-
ledge, and yet so powerful is
God's grace imparted to His
Saints that they are said tube
able to comprehend it.
III. Then the text takes us
into a mystery deeper still, (for
there are depths in the Bible
like the great ocean in their
vast profoundly). After this
attempt to describe in words
the Love of Christ, the Apostle
continues "That ye might be
filled with all the fulness of
God." How can this be ? Vet,
when we ponder, we become
aware that only God can satis
fy the cravings of the soul.
"My sou! is a thirst for God"
says the Psalmist. So St. Paul
prays that this loilgiag after
God in their hearts may be ful
ly satisfied. Of course it is:
quite impossible for any human
soul to contain "all the fulness
of God" just as it is equally im
possible to attain to God's per
faction, although Our Lord said
"Be ye therefore perfect, even
as your Father which is in hea
ven is perfect." But Our Lord
is speaking of the perfection of
Love which is the bond of
union between God and man,
and St. Paul has, no doubt, the
same thought in his mind.
