Zhe tribune Tueedny. October 3 1916. A gentleman remarked the other day that he did not bother to read the wireless messages on Monday because they were bound to be proGerman. We thought strongly of what he said when we read what came through on the second sheet yesterday. According to that, the Roumanians are almost crushed and the Russian offensive near Lemberg is worth nothing. We are inclined to think, however, that as the week proceeds we shall catch news that will keep our faith from fainting. If the German government should keep on its hypocrital methods in submarine matters, President Wilson may find it very difficult to avoid a diplomats break with the Central Powers. We suspect that if the Presidential campaign were not diverting public attention, it would be found that relations between Germany and the United States are even now badly strained on the submarine issue. All It would perhaps be better for him to cease to be king. He might play us some treacherous tricks even while pretending to fight on our s : de. In any case, he had better watch his health carefully. "Balkan apoplexy" might carry him off. —:o:— A SYMETRICAL EDUCATION "That our sons may be as plants grown up in then youth; that our daughters may be as corner stone!-, polished after the similitude of a palace," was the text introducing Prof. Howell s lecture Sunday evening at the Adventist Chapel on Shirley street. A goodly Dumber attended the lecture; and the subject was presented in a manner to impress parents with the high and sacred calling of training their children for the best service here; and a part in thehigherserviceof the great beyond. The lecturer em phasized the fact that since we have a threefold nature, the physical, the mental,and the spiritual, a symetrical education must provide for the harmonious development and training of the mind, the hand, the heart. In view of the interest manifested in this important theme by thecitize. sof Nas sau, Prof. Howell gave out an appointment for another lecture upon the subject of education at the nmechapel at 7.30 next Sunday evening. A cordial invitation is ex tended to all. The Ward Line S. S. "Monterey" arrived in New York on Monday (yesterday) afternoon. week.

In And Out Of The Jutland
Fight.
The True Story of a Strange Transposition
WHEN the War broke out
1 was a medicHl student
preparing for my final exam
Suddenly the study of medicine
grew distasteful to me. I can-
not say I was hungry for the
fight, but 1 was restless, and my
heart found no rest in the stud
is, lectures, or operations of the
day.
My father, a clergyman, said,
"It's the war fever, Jimmy, and
it's not a bad sign to have it.
Your heart's in the right place,
and your body's not. Cet
through youi final, boy, and
go out to help the hurt."
1 believed he was right, but
somehow his words didn't ap
peal. I was a member of the
O. I\C. Medical Unit of the
University, and. did my daily
drills; but from somewhere
someone was calling me to an-
other task. Or so at least it
seemed.
One day at College I heard
that surgeon probationers were
wanted for the Navy, and I de
te/mined to apply. I consulted
an old naval commander, and
upon his advice wrote the Ad
miralty offering my servicts. In
a fortnight or so hack came a
reply which tumbled my airy
castle about me in ruins. There
were no openings at the mo
ment. I'tKd, nt then think that
Providence had nt all favoured
me bv this refusal. Some months
passed, and ftritain awoke one
day to hear and read of the great
Jutland sea fight, as glorious
a page of naval story as ever
has been written. In company
with other medical units of the
O.T.C I was sent to the hospital
to receive and to treat the
wounded as they were brought
in, and there I had the wonder
ful experience 1 now tell.
o o o
My woik of dressing the
wounded was done I had spent
many hours binding up and
Cheering those seriously wound-
ed. Here was a gunner badly
crushed and delirious, lighting
the great battle all over again.
"Give them another," he
would say. "Well hit. bovs,"
and then with altered voice.
"Aye, aye, sir. Yes, sir," and
the poor broken hand came up
to the salute as he received a
new order.
I was walking along the ward
before taking oft my overalls
to see that all was right when
I noticed a face smiling to me.
I crossed over to the bed.
"Do you know me ?" I asked
"Yes," said the wounded man.
"I know you Can you have for-
gotten me? Don't you mind
Walker? I was In the clases with
you. Your name's Mitchell isn't
it ? Jimmy Mitchell.'' g>
"Yes, that is my name," I
answered; "but, never mind,
you can tell me your story when
you're better."
But (he lad persisted, and his
face became familiar to me as I
gazed at him.
"You applied for a job as a
surgeon probationer, didn't
you ?" I nodded. "Well, so did
I," he continued, "and I got a
note bidding me come on, and
I was finally sent to join the
I went down to join, and the
commander said to me. 'How
d'y do Surgeon Mitchell ?'
" 'I'm surgeon right enough,
sir,' said 1,' 'but I'm not Surgeon
Mitchell 'Well,' said he, 'it's
Surgeon Mitchell they've named
you in my despatch, but it'll be
all right.' So I went on board
the ship, and the pen was drawn
through jour name, and toy
name put in its place. I went
there evidently instead of you,
oral least was sent. I've filled
your shoes", and I've suffered a
good deal ; my left leg is off
below the knee, but its getting
on nicely.''
"Tell me how it happened,''
I said, and what you know of
the fight."

"Well," said life, "the com-
mander calls us up on deck and
told us we were going into ac-
tion, and bade us all do our
duty, and lick the German swabs
I went below mu\ laid out my
instruments, thinking there
might be some} wounded, and
placed my lint and bandages
handy. However, I was called
up on deck very soon, for we
had no wounded,and althrough
the battle I was wheeling shells
from the lift to the guns. You
think you're brave, Jimmy, till
you see yon men fighting. The
commander stood on the bridge
smoking his pipe, a man be-
side him with a megaphone toj
call out his orders. His eyes
were everywhere at once
above, around, below. The men
sang 'Tipperary' as they man-
ned the guns, and you could
hear the stokers singing 'Keep
the home fires burning' as they
shovelled on the coal below,
when the fearful ndTse of the
guns would let you hear any-
thing. After a time our ship
was badly hit, and heeled over
a great deal.
"Then something was done
for me that I can never forget.
One of the seaman said tome,
"Surgeon, can you swim ?'
"'No. I can't,'said I. 'Well,
stick to me.' said he, 'for I see
you're wounded.'
"1 said quickly, 'I m not
wounded, 'lor though I had felt
a sting in my leg I had paid no
attention to it.
" 'Oh, yes, you are.' said he ;
'look .t your leg.'
"I looked, and saw my trouser
leg in tatters and saturated
with Uooid.
" 'Come with me,' said the
sailor, and he led me down the
deck, now sloping badly to-
wards the water. He seized my
left arm above the elbow, and
said'Leap,'and we leapt to-
gether into the sea,
a
"Oh, ginger, but it is cold.
We came up, and he swam away
from the ship, pushing me be-
fore him. The waves were big,
and it seemed as if we were very
small in the water, and might
any moment be over-whelmed.
After a while he stopped, and
said, 'Now, surgeon, lie as quiet
as you can, and I will turn you
on your backnnd show you how
to float.' He turned me, and I
floated, his left arm under me,
his hand supporting my back.
'Where is the ship?'I gasped.
'The good ship is down sir,'
said he; 'but cheer up, we're all
right;
"Sometimes he swam and
sometimes he floated, but his
hand was always under my
shoulders, and my head was
kept breathing height above the
sea. A piece of wreckage float-
ed by. He seized it, and put it
under my neck, and I put my
hands up and caught it. There
wc floated for a long time, and
he would often rouse me up

Zhe tribune
Tueedny. October 3 1916.
A gentleman remarked the
other day that he did not
bother to read the wireless
messages on Monday because
they were bound to be pro-
German. We thought strong-
ly of what he said when we
read what came through on
the second sheet yesterday.
According to that, the Rou-
manians are almost crushed
and the Russian offensive
near Lemberg is worth noth-
ing. We are inclined to
think, however, that as the
week proceeds we shall catch
news that will keep our faith
from fainting. If the Ger-
man government should keep
on its hypocrital methods in
submarine matters, Presi-
dent Wilson may find it very
difficult to avoid a diploma-
ts break with the Central
Powers. We suspect that if
the Presidential campaign
were not diverting public
attention, it would be found
that relations between Ger-
many and the United States
are even now badly strained
on the submarine issue. All
It would perhaps be better
for him to cease to be king.
He might play us some trea-
cherous tricks even while
pretending to fight on our
s:de. In any case, he had
better watch his health care-
fully. "Balkan apoplexy"
might carry him off.

A SYMETRICAL
EDUCATION
"That our sons may be as
plants grown up in then
youth; that our daughters
may be as corner stone!-, pol-
ished after the similitude of
a palace," was the text in-
troducing Prof. Howell s
lecture Sunday evening at
the Adventist Chapel on
Shirley street. A goodly
Dumber attended the lecture;
and the subject was present-
ed in a manner to impress
parents with the high and
sacred calling of training
their children for the best
service here; and a part in
thehigherserviceof the great
beyond. The lecturer em
phasized the fact that since
we have a threefold nature,
the physical, the mental,and
the spiritual, a symetrical
education must provide for
the harmonious development
and training of the mind,
the hand, the heart.
In view of the interest
manifested in this important
theme by thecitize. sof Nas
sau, Prof. Howell gave out
an appointment for another
lecture upon the subject of
education at the nmechapel
at 7.30 next Sunday evening.
A cordial invitation is ex
tended to all.
