Zhc {tribune Saturday, December 3, 1916 • The war news during the week has been monotonous. The Western front holds on to the ground already gain) d, and has made slight advances The news Irom the Eastern front is not encouraging, but there is no cause for d< spair. I he main point to be remembered is the fact th.it nf much interest and a great at traction to this resort. The Minimum of recognized d of the boats, classified as "Express cruisers" and fitted for r> eiii service is to he 20 miles per hour, and \\'\\\\ 5 starters at at least three must cross the Bar. We are informed that there are already 12 prospective en tries thus promising an interest ing event which it is intended to establish annually. Starting as above mentioned they should arrive herein time to take part in, or be present at, our local regatta, alto contem plated by the Board, and being the Roumanian forces.,ppeai [accompanied by several patrol to be little injured by the on'"Tt il 157. P"W*** " 'still further add to the popula ritvof that event. These dates slaughts of their invaders. Their retirement seems to have been orderly, and we shall not be surprised to hear of their being able before long to turn the tide, and deal some hard blows at their assailants. In any case the German advance in the East, is likely to weaken their lines on the western front, and so to give us an opportunity of inflicting something like a decisive defeat on their depleted forces. There is a danger that the multifarious activities of the strenuous times in which we are living now, may cause us to lose sight of the fact that "Charity begins at home." Our Red Cross organizations are doing a noble work, but. we sorely miss the beneficent results of the vigilance of Our Dumb Friends League. The cruelties that are daily being in Dieted of Dumb an in nils aic appal ing. We are indeed fortunate that in the person of Lieutenant Turner, we have a man who knows all that there is to be known about horses, and he has been very strict in the matter of refusing licences to carriage drivers who havecorhe before him with animals obviously unfit for the work that is exf iected of them. But the calous cruelties we have com' plained about on former occasions are alas! only too common now Spare does not permit of our giving concrete instances of these barbarities, but once again we appeal to our readers to do all that lies in their power to stamp out this crying evil. A few of these cases, if reported to the Police, in the proper manner will be certain to meet with the punishment they deserve. We hope that, in the to receive the names of any parsons between the ages of 18 and 40 who arc (hsiiious of offering their services for the purpose of forming a Vol unteer defence force. Those offering their services' will be required to lake and sub--, ibe fin cnth of \l legiance.

(Communicated) FIRE It is with regret we have to record a disastrous fire in the early boms of this morning at 1.30 a.m. when it btoke out on East Shirley St. everyone in the neighbourhood enjoying the peaceful hours of sleep, when the bell began ringing; and the bugle sounded; but it was all too late; for the enemy/ had already taken possession, and several buildings and outhouses were consumed in a short space of time; our esteemed friend Mr. L G. Dupueb's beautiful home, was burnt flat, all his furniture and personal effects, gone—and articles and memories of the past of things dear to the family, that no money can replace; that we tender to the family our sincere sympathies in this their hour of trial. Fortunately there is some Insurance, but nothing adequately sufficient to cover the loss, which is irreparable.

EDITOR Nassau Dec. 1st 10.16. The Editor of The Tribune Dear Sir, Quite recently I have been thinking seriously over a matter which I now intend to bring to the notice of the public sincerely trusting that vou will not find the Censor standing be (ween you and its publication. Since the submarine scare, 1 have not felt free from grave concern and it is only fair for me to say that I do not stand alone. Our minds have travelled very fast lately and we recall the shelling of Madras by the German raider Linden in the early part of the war. I don't intend in writing this to make any excitement; far be it from me, but I do feel that at least there is now room for some definite action. Wh a would be the n sub if this low 1: w< 1 -le I ed,' knows, bul We Someone has SUggi I (I thai if tile enemy went SO fa I .is |,, u \ lempi a landing 11 would be our duty to keep oui of the way lest we might share the unhappy fate if Lou vain Dinanl and other places in pom Belgium and France. The wish has always been the lather of the though) with many of us that we are n 't ol sufficien I value as to Bttl let a submarine tn oui 1 idst, Be that as il may, <\ .• should be pn pared; the eiiemj is fight, ing the British Empire and he regards no act so small as to be quite negligible. I have a suggestion which I'd like to offer and I hope that no one will throw cold water on il; also that the Government will give it some careful consideration. The Recruiting Committe could call for volunteers for home defence. We have hundreds of strong young men sportsmen, who would appreciate a training which could be given them by the Sargeant Major Lieut, turner or if hj s services could not be obtained a man could be brought here (1 mi abroad—possibly a returned wounded officer from Canada or England; the expenses to be borna by the public The Governor doesn't need to go to the House to ask fur the power to do these tilings. We gave him the power at die beginning of the war win n vve gave him an open hand to do anything to further the interest of the defense scheme for the period of the war Surely the time has now arrived for something out of the ordinary and although there will be found many to condemn whatever action the Governor takes, yet I believe he will do what reason says is best. Mr. Editor, may I ask you to invite some expression of public opinion on the matter. I Am, Sir, Ever yours, "ONE INTERESTED." (Communicated) That the last two or three years have been years filled with national and international disturbances, no one will deny. The annals of history no where record such a spirit of unrest among mankind as exists at the present.

(Continued from Iff page) Another of these pictures has also had a "past" for only thirty years ago it was picked up by a nobleman of Bruges who found a fish-wife cutting up her fish on it! Of one of these pictures Fromentin said : "Never did artist paint anything more perfect." Yet a century after his death he was forgotten and only one picture by him could have been found in the city. No one knows when he was born, where he came from, or where he learned his art. There is no proof to bolster up Vasan's surmise that Van der Weyden was his teacher. There is no certainty that he was a soldier in the pay of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy—but there is a record in the Town accounts to the effect that he was one of the 247 richest citinens of Bru ges, who were called upon to advance money to defray the expenses of the jvar etween the Emperor Maximillian and the King of France. So that in the fifteenth century we may take it that Belgium suffered for the quarrels of others, not as much it is true as she is suf fering now, for although she was invaded, her people were not driven out of the countrv. It has been said that van Eyck painted with his eyes and Memlinc with his soul. The marvellous workmanship of both these super craftsmen has much in common with the art of the goldsmiths and enamel lers of the period. But there is more in it than this, and although velvet and jewels, flesh and hair, were to him what the working man's pickaxe, sinews and muscles were to Constantin Meumer—still there is ah atmosphere of mysticism in his paintings, which always comes into the work of any artist who allows himself to soak in the realities of Nature. Fromentin looks on him as a precurser of Bellini, Botticelli and Perugio, and so he mathave been, but something in the soil of Flanders entered' into him and has descended into the modern painters of his race. Not anywhere but in the land of Memlinc do we see the same love of facts as symbols. Untouched by the wars, plagues and horrors of his era, Memlinc made a sanctuary for himself—a sort of heavenly re treat : untouched by the passing madness, he knew that ecstasy, that quiet of soul, that spiritual passion, and atonement with Nature,— which is so much more exhilarating and so much more full of real joy, than all the ex citements the ordinary man can even dream of This ecstasy of mind, —his spirit bathed in pure light; his body supple with physical content—explains the miracle of his art: and the interesting point about it is that this painter has glorified his country more than the soldiers in those forgotten wars. This painter has brought people from all over the world—for many generations—to spend their mo ney in the little town of Bruges. So trMy an artist serve his coun try for there are several sorts of Patriotism. Something of his divine calm was on the poplar-bordered fields of Flanders as I saw her only 3 years ago.—Prosperous, well-ordered, self contained.

A B E the above conditions fulfilled in your locality ? Can you receive full value for your purchase of a motor car if you buy same locally ? 1 N order to overcome existing conditions in territories such as yours wo have made arrangements with the manufacturers of one of the oldest, most popular and reliable motor cars on the American market, that will enable you to purchase an up-to-the-minute automobile without the intervention of local dealers at an extremely low price and with the only possible combination that will give you reliable service.

The war news during the
week has been monotonous.
The Western front holds on
to the ground already gain) d,
and has made slight advances
The news Irom the Eastern
front is not encouraging,
but there is no cause for d< s-
pair. I he main point to be
remembered is the fact th.it
nf much interest and a great at
traction to this resort.
The Minimum of recognized
d of the boats, classified as
"Express cruisers" and fitted for
r> eiii service is to he 20 miles
per hour, and \\'\\\\ 5 starters at
at least three must cross the Bar.
We are informed that there
are already 12 prospective en
tries thus promising an interest
ing event which it is intended
to establish annually.
Starting as above mentioned
they should arrive herein time
to take part in, or be present at,
our local regatta, alto contem
plated by the Board, and being
the Roumanian forces.,ppeai [accompanied by several patrol
to be little injured by the on- '"Tt il 157. P"W*** "
'still further add to the popula
ritvof that event. These dates
slaughts of their invaders.
Their retirement seems to
have been orderly, and we
shall not be surprised
to hear of their being able
before long to turn the tide,
and deal some hard blows at
their assailants. In any case
the German advance in the
East, is likely to weaken their
lines on the western front,
and so to give us an oppor-
tunity of inflicting something
like a decisive defeat on their
depleted forces.
There is a danger that the
multifarious activities of the
strenuous times in which we
are living now, may cause us
to lose sight of the fact that
"Charity begins at home."
Our Red Cross organizations
are doing a noble work, but.
we sorely miss the beneficent
results of the vigilance of Our
Dumb Friends League. The
cruelties that are daily being
in Dieted of Dumb an in nils aic
appal ing. We are indeed
fortunate that in the person
of Lieutenant Turner, we
have a man who knows all
that there is to be known
about horses, and he has been
very strict in the matter of
refusing licences to carriage
drivers who havecorhe before
him with animals obviously
unfit for the work that is ex-
fiected of them. But the cal-
ous cruelties we have com-
' plained about on former oc-
casions are alas! only too
common now Spare does not
permit of our giving concrete
instances of these barbarities,
but once again we appeal to
our readers to do all that lies
in their power to stamp out
this crying evil. A few of
these cases, if reported to the
Police, in the proper manner
will be certain to meet
with the punishment they de-
serve. We hope that, in the
to receive the names of any
parsons between the ages of
18 and 40 who arc (hsiiious
of offering their services for
the purpose of forming a Vol
unteer defence force.
Those offering their servi-
ces' will be required to lake

FIRE
It is with regret we have
to record a disastrous fire
in the early boms of this
morning at 1.30 a.m. when it
btoke out on East Shirley St.
everyone in the neighbour-
hood enjoying the peaceful
hours of sleep, when the bell
began ringing; and the bugle
sounded; but it was all too
late; for the enemy/ had al-
ready taken possession, and
several buildings and out-
houses were consumed in a
short space of time; our es-
teemed friend Mr. L G. Du-
pueb's beautiful home, was
burnt flat, all his furniture
and personal effects, gone-
and articles and memories of
the past of things dear to the
family, that no money can
replace; that we tender to
the family our sincere sym-
pathies in this their hour of
trial. Fortunately there is
some Insurance, but nothing
adequately sufficient to cover
the loss, which is irreparable.

The Editor of The Tribune
Dear Sir,
Quite recently I have
been thinking seriously over a
matter which I now intend to
bring to the notice of the public
sincerely trusting that vou will
not find the Censor standing be
(ween you and its publication.
Since the submarine scare, 1
have not felt free from grave
concern and it is only fair for
me to say that I do not stand
alone.
Our minds have travelled
very fast lately and we recall
the shelling of Madras by the
German raider Linden in the
early part of the war.
I don't intend in writing this
to make any excitement; far be
it from me, but I do feel that at
least there is now room for some
definite action.
Wh a would be the n sub if
this low 1: w< 1 -le I ed,'
knows, bul We
Someone has SUggi I (I thai if
tile enemy went SO fa I .is |,, u\-
lempi a landing 11 would be our
duty to keep oui of the way lest
we might share the unhappy
fate if Lou vain Dinanl and
other places in pom Belgium
and France.
The wish has always been the
lather of the though) with many
of us that we are n 't ol suffici-
en I value as to Bttl let a subma-
rine tn oui 1 idst,
Be that as il may, <\ . should
be pn pared; the eiiemj is fight,
ing the British Empire and he
regards no act so small as to be
quite negligible.
I have a suggestion which I'd
like to offer and I hope that no
one will throw cold water on il;
also that the Government will
give it some careful considera-
tion.
The Recruiting Committe
could call for volunteers for
home defence. We have hun-
dreds of strong young men__
sportsmen, who would appreci-
ate a training which could be
given them by the Sargeant
Major Lieut, turner or if hjs
services could not be obtained
a man could be brought here
(1 mi abroadpossibly a return-
ed wounded officer from Cana-
da or England; the expenses to
be borna by the public
The Governor doesn't need to
go to the House to ask fur the
power to do these tilings. We
gave him the power at die be-
ginning of the war win n vve
gave him an open hand to do
anything to further the interest
of the defense scheme for the
period of the war
Surely the time has now ar-
rived for something out of the
ordinary and although there
will be found many to condemn
whatever action the Governor
takes, yet I believe he will do
what reason says is best.
Mr. Editor, may I ask you
to invite some expression of
public opinion on the matter.
I Am, Sir,
Ever yours, '

the smile and look of perfect health and con-

dapenda on How Baby is Fed. The right food
given at the proper age means rest and comfort
for the mother and a sound healthy constitution

do not select a cubstitute merely because it is
cheap in price. Adopt what experience has

Another of these pictures has
also had a "past" for only thirty
years ago it was picked up by a
nobleman of Bruges who found
a fish-wife cutting up her fish
on it! Of one of these pictures
Fromentin said : "Never did ar-
tist paint anything more per-
fect." Yet a century after his
death he was forgotten and only
one picture by him could have
been found in the city. No one
knows when he was born, where
he came from, or where he
learned his art. There is no
proof to bolster up Vasan's sur-
mise that Van der Weyden was
his teacher. There is no cer-
tainty that he was a soldier in
the pay of Charles the Bold,
Duke of Burgundybut there
is a record in the Town accounts
to the effect that he was one of
the 247 richest citinens of Bru
ges, who were called upon to
advance money to defray the
expenses of the jvar etween
the Emperor Maximillian and
the King of France. So that in
the fifteenth century we may
take it that Belgium suffered
for the quarrels of others, not
as much it is true as she is suf
fering now, for although she
was invaded, her people were
not driven out of the countrv.
It has been said that van
Eyck painted with his eyes and
Memlinc with his soul. The
marvellous workmanship of
both these super craftsmen has
much in common with the art
of the goldsmiths and enamel
lers of the period. But there is
more in it than this, and al-
though velvet and jewels, flesh
and hair, were to him what the
working man's pickaxe, sinews
and muscles were to Constantin
Meumerstill there is ah at-
mosphere of mysticism in his
paintings, which always comes
into the work of any artist who
allows himself to soak in the
realities of Nature.
Fromentin looks on him as a
precurser of Bellini, Botticelli
and Perugio, and so he mat-
have been, but something in the
soil of Flanders entered' into
him and has descended into the
modern painters of his race.
Not anywhere but in the land
of Memlinc do we see the same
love of facts as symbols.
Untouched by the wars,
plagues and horrors of his era,
Memlinc made a sanctuary for
himselfa sort of heavenly re
treat : untouched by the passing
madness, he knew that ecstasy,
that quiet of soul, that spiritual
passion, and atonement with
Nature, which is so much more
exhilarating and so much more
full of real joy, than all the ex
citements the ordinary man can
even dream of This ecstasy of
mind, his spirit bathed in pure
light; his body supple with
physical contentexplains the
miracle of his art: and the in-
teresting point about it is that
this painter has glorified his
country more than the soldiers
in those forgotten wars. This
painter has brought people from
all over the worldfor many
generationsto spend their mo
ney in the little town of Bruges.
So trMy an artist serve his coun
try for there are several sorts
of Patriotism.
Something of his divine calm
was on the poplar-bordered
fields of Flanders as I saw her
only 3 years ago.Prosperous,

which have not already declared
war upon some other people are
so much permeated with the
war spirit and Hlewi* anger
that it is with difficulty that
they can be kept from entering
the great war.
Paul, in the third chapter of
his second letter to Timothy,
speaks of this greet animosity

the following language, 1 his

The truthfulness of Pauls state
n.ent in regard to the fierceness
of men in the last days is attest
ed by way the present struggle
is carried on. One writer MyS,
"They inscribe crossbor.es and
skull on their aeroplanes. They
letter revenge on their guns and
shells They shout and shriek
and talk and sing the hatred of
hell against their toes, and tre
very words drip with blood.
William Bayard Hale, writing
from the German army on the
SoniOM, tells us that things are.
"done by maddened human
beings in'the trenches which to
the credit of humanity ought
never to be written." "The na
tintis are turning from God's cup
of salvation and pace. and he is
le ting them drink .of the cup
ol madness" This is so plainly
declared in the twentyhfth chap
te. of Jeremiah. "Fortbussaitn

to whom I send thee, to diink it.
And they shall drink and be

case that to the extent that na

of mercy. He gives them over
to the one whom they h iva
Chosen to serve, and the spirit of
hate that tills his heart soon
takes possession of bitsubje) ts.

To Present and Prospective Automobile Owners
l/l/A^fi you Pay tne *'st Pr'ce ^or an automobile you are entitled
W "en to something more than the possession of a self-propelled
vehicle.
THIS "something" is SERVICEthe foundation of which is a
local abundant stock of spare parts.
T H E purchase of an automobile from a local dealer entitles you
to service. Can you get it in your locality ? Impossible. Why? Be-
cause the total volume of automobile business of any one make in your
city does not permit it.
A N automobile dealr in countries where motor cars are not man-
ufactured can give proper service to owners only if two conditions are
fulfilled :
ist.Thai, he sells a car ui iccugiiized merit* WiiSch ia iwi. an ex-
periment but a proven success, manufactured in quantities by makers
who concentrate their efforts in one and only one chassis and who do
not change models yearly or increase the variety to the extent of mak-
ing it practically impossible to keep their distributors and dealers pro-
perly supplied with parts.
2nd.That he sells at least one hundred cars of the same model
and make yearly.
A B E the above conditions fulfilled in your locality ? Can you
receive full value for your purchase of a motor car if you buy same
locally ?
1 N order to overcome existing conditions in territories such as
yours wo have made arrangements with the manufacturers of one of
the oldest, most popular and reliable motor cars on the American mar-
ket, that will enable you to purchase an up-to-the-minute automobile
without the intervention of local dealers at an extremely low price
and with the only possible combination that will give you reliable
service.
THE PLAN
WE will sell and ship Maxwell Cars directly to the ultimate purchasers. We will furnish ABSOLUTELY
GRATIS to the purchaser of each Maxwell Car seventy five dollars worth of spare parts including one (casing)
tire and one inner tube. A portion of the assortment of parts FURNISHED GRATIS will be the same in all
cases, the balance will be changed in each instance and every purchaser will receive a list of the parts fur
nished gratis to every owner in his locality.
This Is Actual!
