Astrologer Peeks Toward the
Sky and Sees the End of War.
STl'ART Armour, formerly a
California mining engineei
and now manager >f the Mount
Stephen House at Field, 15. C,
predicts that the war will come
to a close in 1917 with Prussia's
defeat, and that a revolution
will follow, depriving the kai
ser of his throne in 1918.
Mr Armour makes his deduc-
tions by means of Bttcology,
which be has studied for twenty
years and in n Inch he is a firm
believer, lie has made some le
markable predictions in years
past and his prophecies are al
ways awaited with interest in
California and western Canada.
He says:
"It is very plainly shown in
the Stan that the war will not
end this year. To compute its
close we musl study the horos-
copes of the emperors of (ier
main and Austria.
"The kaiser was born with the
sun in opposition to Saturn and
this is a very heavy affliction.
In 1917 and 1918 the evil will
he stirred into action by the
transit < f Saturn over the place
of Saturn in the kaiser's nativity.
It will lie a very evil time for
him. In all records of men horn
With such an affliction disaster
h is come with mathematical
certainty. The kaiser lias no
chance under such an affliction,
and defeat after defeat is fore
shadowed for him.

points in Poincare's horoscope
as well as the king of Belgium's
and others on the side of theal
lies during 1917 I would by all
means consider that peace will
n, most likely in
the Minion or aily fall. The
kaiser will be 1 ompelled to
make an ignominious peac,
which will be followed by a re-
volution in Germany and the
loss of his throne in 1918. As
has been predicted by the best
BStrologistS of the United States
and Great Britain, the royal
house ol Germany is doomed to
be shorn of its power, and t;

Plan To Drive
In Wedges
"I he pi in of campaign a? out
lined by General Joffre will be
lily adhered to from this
time forth. It is to hold the
present lines along the entire*
front, and by pounding opera-
tions toward points lrt \.il and Douaumont to drive tri-
augulai wedges into the front
liues wherevei possible. The
purpose of these movements is
not to secure any temporary
Strategic advantage, but while
holding the German lines with
in their present limitations to
increase the actual trench area
which must be defended by the
Germaos. In other words, the
entire plan is to substitute the
sigzag and irregular line where
ever it runs straight across.
"The allied Generals realize
that every additional mile of
ground to be ch fended by the

cumstances imposes a much
greatSI strain on the enemy and

Is Germany's Credit
Giving Out '
(New York Journal
of Commerce)
The German Government has
depended mainly u|>on domestic
loans for the means of earn ing
on its gigantic war. It lias
avoided drawing heavily upon
i' own people by increased tax
ation, which Ihej would have
erely felt and wliicii
would have tended to
weaken their moral sup-
port of the ruling powei and it
has not been able or willing to
place loans abroad to any great
it. It has sought to induce
the people to take patriotic
pride in meeting its huge ex
peuditures from their own sub
stance, virtually promising that
it would be restored by indein
nities drawn from their defeat
cd enemies. It looks as though
both their substance and then
faith in victory were reaching
i xhaustiop, and as if financial
support might go itll these.

THE TIGER
fy
is one of the most destructive of animals, and is
a source of much danger to life.
SUNLIGHT SOAP
preserves and lengthens the life of your clothes, but
it is a source of destruction to all dirt and unclean-
liness. The amount of destruction wrought by a tiger
in a single night, cannot
be compared to the amount
of destruction wrought by
inferior soap in a single
wash-day. Sunlight Soap
is an absolutely pure Soap,
that saves your clothes,
time, money, and labour.
