enough to force a crossing of
the Danube. This they have
been aide to do with ease, and
VonFalkenheyms forci s have
joined hands with Von Mac-

from this front.
I he situation in Greece is
interesting, and speculation,
is rife as to exactly what will
happen. One thing is quite
certain, and that is that the
Allies will stand no moo
nonsense from Constantine,
and it will not surprise us
much to see the Greek Gov-
ernment decide to throw in
their lot with the Entente.

By the late mails the first
installment of advertising by
the Developement Board on
behalf of the Colony as an
attractive Winter resort have
come to hand and we have
h id the opportunity of in-
specting them. So far they
have- appeared in a number
of the leading magazines and
we are given to understand
that this number will be con-
siderably augmented as the
season proceeds.
The Phase used and the
accompanying cut "At the
Rainbow laid" tocatch the
eye of readers is in our opin-
ion a felitous one and should
have good results.
We also note witii pleasure
a full page ad. of the Ward
Line with illustrations and
large type headings that are
very attractive.

the Battle of the Somme he re-

read : "YVe's all right. Dicks
done fine and they recommend

flays afterwards-one of the fath

with a list of decorations with

list told how at a verv hot point
" the battle his bov'had gone
out,"'toNo Man's Land, gath
ered bombs wheie he could,and
had crossed over rme of the most
flangerous parts of the line time
after time to supply his com
rades with them. The father
showed me Dick's portrait, a

you seen him working on the
