Zbc tribune Thursday, Nov. 01th, 1916 As we are thinking of the way in which tilings are de veloping in the theatre of war, we are haunted continually by that phrase of Mr. Lloyd George, "The wonder of France". The part France is playing in the struggle is indeed wonderful. To many it is surprising that our Ally should exhibit such staving power. Her defence of Verdun was a marvel. We had been apt to think that the French soldier was not good on the defensive. We now see that he can beat the German in that type of fighting. But a study of history would have apprised us of the fact that these wonderful people have been noted for centuries for the grim tenacity with which they will defend their beloved land. A quotation from Professor De Champ will not be out of place lure. "The France that is fighting now is the old France with her love of liberty for herself and others, the same France that stopped theHuns my sent her sons to crush the forefathers of the present Huns." It is Well for us to remember that gay volatile Paris is not 1' ranee. The true France is to be found in the country bonus with theii passionate love for their country and fireside. Patriotism is developed to an amazing degree in France and it is this patriotism which will be one of the main factors in the Inn ting back of the hated German from her soil. We are requested to state that the formal opening of •he Ice Plant and Sale of Refresh men t son Friday the 10th as advertised has been postponed owing to the unfavourable weather during thepasi week.

Mr. Lloyd George at Verdun.
Glowing Tribute To The Defenders.
PARIS,Sept. ii.
I have just returned from a
visit to Verdun, where eve Is,
though not as sensational as
those on the S .innie, air, p, r
haps, more significant. There
the initiative lias now become
entirely French, and thefe, as
elsew h< re along the frnt as far
as the Somroe, there is the strong
feeling that, with a few more
guns, particularly a few inure
quick firing and heavy bait, ries,
they will be able to go through
the German Inns without much
difficulty.
The man who, with \I. Albert
Thomas, is busy providing the
Western \rmv with the neces-
sary weapon, Mr. Lloyd George,
was visiting the French front
during my short excursion. In
the Casemates of the citadel, in
the great caves underneath the
town, General Dubois, the
doughty old warrior, who
> in, w bat was once the city of
Verdun, entertained Mr. Lloyd
George and M. Mbert Thomas
at luncheon. From the Aigonne
could be hard the heavy, jnces
sail' toll of arlilleiy.
I he company assembled con-
sisted of every rank of offii ei
fi m sub-lieu h nan) to Chief of
Staff, all bearing trai es ol tl e
battle which is in progn ss, In
the cavern where the kitchen is
installed i I ible of lionoui had
be n sjfl up at the end of the 01
After luncheon General Du
bois welcomed Mr. Lloyd
George in two happy phrases
Then the Secretary of State Poi
War made niasuf the shortest
and most moving speeches of his
career. Unfortunately, there is
no verbatim record of Ins words,
but the general si use of his re
marks was follows :--
First of all I wish to tell you
how glad I am that you ask, rj
me to sil at (able with your of-
ficers in the heart of Verdun's
citadel. I am glad to see around
me those who have come back
from battle, those who will be
fighting to-morrow, and those
i who, with you, General, are sen
tries on these impregnable walls.
The name of Verdun alone will
be enough to arouse imperish
abb- memories throughout the
centuries to come There is not

high qualities "I ftie Army and

Zbc tribune
Thursday, Nov. 01th, 1916
As we are thinking of the
way in which tilings are de
veloping in the theatre of
war, we are haunted continu-
ally by that phrase of Mr.
Lloyd George, "The wonder
of France". The part France
is playing in the struggle is
indeed wonderful. To many
it is surprising that our Ally
should exhibit such staving
power. Her defence of Ver-
dun was a marvel. We had
been apt to think that the
French soldier was not good
on the defensive. We now
see that he can beat the Ger-
man in that type of fighting.
But a study of history would
have apprised us of the fact
that these wonderful people
have been noted for centuries
for the grim tenacity with
which they will defend their
beloved land. A quotation
from Professor De Champ
will not be out of place lure.
"The France that is fighting
now is the old France with
her love of liberty for her-
self and others, the same
France that stopped theHuns
my sent her sons to crush the
forefathers of the present
Huns." It is Well for us to re-
member that gay volatile
Paris is not 1' ranee. The true
France is to be found in the
country bonus with theii
passionate love for their
country and fireside. Patrio-
tism is developed to an amaz-
ing degree in France and it
is this patriotism which will
be one of the main factors in
the Inn ting back of the hated
German from her soil.
We are requested to state
that the formal opening of
he Ice Plant and Sale of Re-
fresh men t son Friday the 10th
as advertised has been post-
poned owing to the unfavour-
able weather during thepasi
week. The date will be an-
nounced later.
We are asked to State

The story is told of an

was very ill, with smallpox.
One night he said to ids w ifi :
Bridget, dear, I wa it to have
the last rite^ of the. hurcfl at

Bridget said : "If you want
the last ritfs, you shall have
them, but \ 011 don't want a
Jewish Rabbi. You want the
priest."
"No" says Pat, "I want a
Jewish Rabbi, I >o you think
I want our priest to get the
