They should be con sidered as the watchman, and thus should they consider them selves. In the words of the pro phet Kzekiel, "But if the watch man see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come and take any person from among them his blood will I require at the watchman's hand." We have surely come to a very serious and critical time in the history of the world. This is the view of thoughtful, sober minded, men of all classes. In all nations we find men expres sing themselves in the same manner as did President Wilson recently, when he said: "We are witnessing a cataclysm and God only knows what the issue will be M Es President Talt says: The future looks dark indeed." Another, a noted writer says, "The most critical moment in the world's his'ory is upon us. Event": are transpiring to stun the stoutest mind.

These sayings sound very much like some utterance made by oar Saviour so long ago, when He told His disciples the condi tio.is that would prevail upon the earth just before His return. In Matt. ^4,0,-7 we read, "And ye shall hear of wars and rumi ors of wars F or nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom." This saying is certainly fulfilled before our eyes today, and shows the Lord's coming near. Again we read the following in Luke 21:25,25, "And upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity Mens hearts failing them for fear and for looking after those things that are coming on the earth' "Then, shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power j and great glory" The distress and perplexity of millions of people in the belligerent countries are alread] beyond description and growing worse each day, and men are filled with fear as they see what the warlike preparations of the nations will lead to. Truly the end of all things is near. We hear on every hand the cry for preparedness. It is indeed j a time to prepare, but it should be to meet Our God in peace.' The prophet says, "'Therefore! thus will I do unto thee O Is( rael: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare To meet thy God, O Israel*' Amos 4:12 there will be a company of people on earth when the Lord comes, who instead of preparing carnal vvea pons with which to slay their! fellow, beings, have prepared i their hearts, by learning to love God supremely, and their neigh hours as themselves, to welcome the Lord'sappearance.Such will be able to look up and say, "Lo j this is our God,; we have waited for Hun and he will save us: j this is the Lord we have waited for Him, we will be glad and re \ joice in His salvation" Isa. 25:9 God's peoplfc ought to take these gieat political and'nationj al difficulties, that are prevail ing everywhere, very seriously to heart and know it is time" to BWake out of sleep, for now is Salvation nearer to us than when we first believed.

And that —the.roar of the explosions, not the window breaking—was go ing on incessantly over an area about as large, at a guess, as Middlesex. In some places, for hundreds of yards, the puns were almost touching each other, and, though they were, of course, not as thick on the ground as that everywhere, nearly three hours after turning our backs on the advanced batteries to make our way to the rear we passed by a paint streaked monster, the full back of the game, ponderously belching forth his quota of high explosive! in the same direction. Unfortunately, though the day was clear, there was a tearing wind blowing, and the sky for once was clear of saucissons and war planes, and observation from the air of the results of the fire was practically impossible. But one thing WHS sufficiently obvious. German as well as French and British gunners were doing effective work. It is shells that do the damage and shells, more than almost anythii g else, which will win the war.

It may or may not be true that the re sources and output of the El sen works are to be doubled.

Rejoice in the Lord alway, and again I say rejoice T he Lord isat hand. On the threshold of the Anniversary of the birthday ol JesusChristJthe'Church strikes a key note in the word Rejoice. The Christian religion is intend ed to give us true happiness and the Advent of Our Saviour is a cause for real joy. Christmas has always been regarded as a time of rejoicing, with its family reunions and festivities. But if we would have true Christian happiness in this coming Christ mastide we must remember the meaning of the word Rejoice. I. First, Christmas joy must not be selfish. Real happiness consists in making other people happy, we shall try to do a good turn to someone and we shall make some sacrifice on their behalf. Again, our Christmas joy must not lead to excess in eat ing or drinking, or in any other way. Some persons seem to think that happiness consists in gluttony and intemperance, and so they sink below the level of the beasts of the field. The dis tinguishiug mark of Christimi rejoicing is that it spring! from an interior joy, in the heart, put there by God Himself, and overflowing in acts of love and kindness towards others. So it helps us to overcome our natural selsence in His Holy Sacrament. Just as the Christian Church has always known and always taught that Jesus Christ is God Incarnate—That is God the Eternal Son has taken our llu man Nature, so the Church has always believed and taught that, (in a wav which none can explain, but which we do most truly believe) there is an actual Advent of Christ to believing souls in His own Sacrament of Holy Communion. He is at hand there, in a most wonderful and loving way, to gi"e each, who with faith and love receives Him, the most intense joy and a happiness, which nothing earthly can equal. When the Lord does finally reveal Himself may He find us as earnestly waiting for Him then as we now anticipate the temporary joys of the Christmas festival.

KNOWLK.s WALTER TWYNAM Hotel Colonial Dairy. J N Italy, especially in the North, the working people are of very ancient family. They are as proud as any aristocrat; and they have pood reason for their pride. They come of a great race, one which in the old days of the Roman Empire conquered half the world and not only conquered it, hut civilized the people and made the countries where they went, prosperous. And, from the North of Italy went forth the conquering he roes, with Garibaldi, only a generation ago. The "family tree" of any Italian peasant may easily go back four or five—or '.en—hun died years in direct descent. This may sound an exaggeration but it is not so. An American with such a family history would want a place among the "Five Hun dred". But t lie Italian peasant has a class pride of another kind. I le is so proud of his own class that he rarely, if ever, tries to enter any other. The habits and customs of the Italian peasant class are ine radicable. You cannot judge these peo pie by what you may see of them in the United States. Eor ,1 while they sink their personality over there, and do as others do. But when they return to their native village, the change is as complete. They be Come again what they were. A little richer than the others, with goodAmencan dollars they buy the pieXe of land, where be fore they drudged, and settle down among their own kind. It never occurs to them to give themselves airs, or to try to "rise socially". They are happy. A happy, laughing race of strong fearless men and a jolly, contented lot of beautiful, se rene, healthy women. They have their passions—like the rest of us—and their times of violence. But they soon forgetand laugh again. The nervousness, the overstrcnuousness of America, drops from them the moment they return to their own land. They take things easily. "To be always busy and never to sit idly thinking" one*moun tain girl told me was the Secret of Happiness. They are often called lazy, by Northerners who see them basking in the sun at mid-day. but they are not lazy. They are a people who are al ways working, but who never over work. They rise early, and at mid day they take a siesta. They know the value of rest, and sun. The manner of life is some thing as follows : but varies of course according to the produce of the different parts of the country: — At 5.30 or 6 A.M. the family rises. The men draw water and chop wood for the day; the women clean the house. The Italian race still keeps its repu cation for dirtiness which it had in the days before the Union brought self respect and Free (loin,-but as a matter of fact the Dutch people themselves are not cleaner than the Italians of the well ordeied Northern counties of Italy. Although beginning work before 6 A.M. they do not eat until 9 A.M. She did not like to see us without help. Never once did she assert her equality. She was one of her class : we were of ours. She was bred to work with her hands, we were bred to work with our heads We never told her this. She knew it by instinct, and behaved accordingly. She asked a very small sum for working for us, five lire a week. Just over one dollar and she preferred to go home to her meals. Yet she preserved her diguity—though she worked splendidly. Moreover she otter, brought us presents. A huge bunch of Mimosa flower : or a large bask t over (lowing with golden oranges, branches of lemons, bunches of violets, and sometimes some special dish she had cooked. These were accepted as they were offered, — with love. We did not pay extra. That would have insulted her. She came always at 6 A.M walking down the mountain more than half, the reason of their health and of their gaiety, and they observe the customs of their own class in the matter of dress very rigidly also. A peasant woman will not LOWER herself to copy the dress of the aristocratic class. I remember offering a very good and little used hat to the daughter of the "Angela" who cleaned for us. It was one I had brought from Paris and I thought to give her pleasure. It cost Rosa some thing to refuse an offered gift— because of the inherent good manners of her race and her class. Raising her head a little she gently declined it, however. "It is not for me" she said. "The women of my class do not wear such tnings—excuse me—for give me Signorina—but I can not wear it." Later I discovered that only the "li^ht" women wear those things in her class. But she thought it perfectly right for me In the cities, now, many of the working women wear hats: but in the country they are proud to go bareheaded. • Their lovely and well dressed hair repays them for their good sense. It is the custom for every woman and girl to visit the coiffeur at least once a week. They are independent, free, and often moderately rich—very well educated too. But they will not marry out of their rank ; and nothing will induce them to copy another clan. They care nothing for 'fashions'. They have a fashion of their own. And then they eat Minestra. with hare feet. Later in tiie day This is a soup made of well"one of her daughters came t boiled vegetables, with some vermecelli in it, and large peices of olive bread ; as well as plen ly tomato sauce and a sprinkling of powdered cheese. It is said by doctors that this BOUp contains every sort of nourishment needed, by the Hu man frame. The tomato sauce is homemade, from ripe tomatoes. Then the men go forth to their [-varying occupation? in the village or on .the sea. A a sea far ing Nation the Italians have been famous since long before the first century of Christianity The women, their house-work done, dress themselves neatly, and sit 111 the sun at their cot* tage doors, making lace. So, the women are self-supporting. Yet they care nothing about "The Vote." Their many children play around them. They do not go into service very often. In the mountains in Liguria I had a cottage with a friend whose home it was. She could not get a mil id servant. It was beneath the dignity of the families of those simple mountain people to let their daughters go into service. But an old mother came. teach me Italian. A well educated girl with whom it was a pleasure to talk. At mid day these people eat a piece of olive bread and per haps an orange, with a drink of clear water. At 6 P.M. they have their last meal, Spagctti ; or Kisottoja Irtfilthr meal con taining the right kinds of nour ishment. They do not go very early to bed When they live near a city they often walk in—many miles —and go to the opera,—or to the "movie." Every Saturday night some ol the country people go to the Grand Opera,— singing along the roads as they return hotne. They never drink tea, or coffee, or cocoa. They n^ver eat meat, or chicken, except once at Christmas and at Eaeter. They rarely touch milk or eggs, and the wine they make is only taken by themselves on rate occa sions and on Sundays.

Notice.
WE, the undersigned, beg
to inform our custom-
ers that on and after tin- i--t
December, the price of milk
will be qd. per quart insj^nd
of 8d., 4Jd. per pint instead
of 4d. and 2jd. per half pint
instead of 2d., owing to the
enormous increase in cattle-
feed, etc. The price of milk
should have been raised long
ere now, but to save this we
have been trying to use our
local feeds, but as the winter
is setting in and the latter is
getting scarce we have to
again resort to the foreign
material. Ily this explanation
our customers will realize
that we have tried to consid-
er them. It is just possible
that there will be. a still fur-
ther increase in the price of
milk.

Hotel Colonial Dairy.
JN Italy, especially in the
North, the working people
are of very ancient family.
They are as proud as any
aristocrat; and they have pood
reason for their pride. They
come of a great race, one which
in the old days of the Roman
Empire conquered half the
world and not only conquered
it, hut civilized the people and
made the countries where they
went, prosperous.
And, from the North of Italy
went forth the conquering he
roes, with Garibaldi, only a
generation ago.
The "family tree" of any
Italian peasant may easily go
back four or fiveor '.enhun
died years in direct descent.
This may sound an exaggera-
tion but it is not so.
An American with such a
family history would want a
place among the "Five Hun
dred".
But tlie Italian peasant has a
class pride of another kind.
I le is so proud of his own class
that he rarely, if ever, tries to
enter any other.
The habits and customs of the
Italian peasant class are ine
radicable.
You cannot judge these peo
pie by what you may see of
them in the United States. Eor
,1 while they sink their person-
ality over there, and do as
others do. But when they re-
turn to their native village, the
change is as complete. They be
Come again what they were. A
little richer than the others,
with goodAmencan dollars they
buy the pieXe of land, where be
fore they drudged, and settle
down among their own kind.
It never occurs to them to
give themselves airs, or to try to
"rise socially". They are happy.
A happy, laughing race of
strong fearless men and a jolly,
contented lot of beautiful, se
rene, healthy women. They have
their passionslike the rest of
usand their times of violence.
But they soon forget- and laugh
again. The nervousness, the
overstrcnuousness of America,
drops from them the moment
they return to their own land.
They take things easily.
"To be always busy and never
to sit idly thinking" one*moun
tain girl told me was the Secret
of Happiness.
They are often called lazy,
by Northerners who see them
basking in the sun at mid-day.
but they are not lazy.
They are a people who are al
ways working, but who never
over work.
They rise early, and at mid
day they take a siesta. They
know the value of rest, and sun.
The manner of life is some
thing as follows : but varies of
course according to the produce
of the different parts of the
country:
At 5.30 or 6 A.M. the family
rises. The men draw water and
chop wood for the day; the
women clean the house. The
Italian race still keeps its repu
cation for dirtiness which it had
in the days before the Union
brought self respect and Free
(loin,-but as a matter of fact
the Dutch people themselves are
not cleaner than the Italians of
the well ordeied Northern coun-
ties of Italy. Although begin-
ning work before 6 A.M. they do
not eat until 9 A.M.
She did not like to see us with-
out help. Never once did she
assert her equality. She was one
of her class : we were of ours.
She was bred to work with her
hands, we were bred to work
with our heads
We never told her this.
She knew it by instinct, and
behaved accordingly.
She asked a very small sum
for working for us, five lire a
week. Just over one dollar !
and she preferred to go home to
her meals. Yet she preserved her
diguitythough she worked
splendidly. Moreover she otter,
brought us presents.
A huge bunch of Mimosa
flower : or a large bask t over
(lowing with golden oranges,
branches of lemons, bunches of
violets, and sometimes some
special dish she had cooked.
These were accepted as they
were offered, with love. We
did not pay extra. That would
have insulted her.
She came always at 6 A.M ,
walking down the mountain
more than half, the reason of
their health and of their gaiety,
and they observe the customs of
their own class in the matter of
dress very rigidly also. A pea-
sant woman will not lower her-
self to copy the dress of the ar-
istocratic class.
I remember offering a very
good and little used hat to the
daughter of the "Angela" who
cleaned for us.
It was one I had brought from
Paris and I thought to give her
pleasure. It cost Rosa some
thing to refuse an offered gift
because of the inherent good
manners of her race and her
class. Raising her head a little
she gently declined it, however.
"It is not for me" she said. "The
women of my class do not wear
such tningsexcuse mefor
give me Signorinabut I can
not wear it."
Later I discovered that only the
"li^ht" women wear those
things in her class. But she
thought it perfectly right for me
In the cities, now, many of
the working women wear hats:
but in the country they are
proud to go bareheaded.
Their lovely and well dressed
hair repays them for their good
sense. It is the custom for every
woman and girl to visit the
coiffeur at least once a week.
They are independent, free,
and often moderately richvery
well educated too. But they
will not marry out of their rank ;
and nothing will induce them
to copy another clan.
They care nothing for 'fashions'.
They have a fashion of their
own.
And then they eat Minestra. with hare feet. Later in tiie day
This is a soup made of well- "one of her daughters came t
boiled vegetables, with some
vermecelli in it, and large peices
of olive bread ; as well as plen
ly tomato sauce and a sprink-
ling of powdered cheese.
It is said by doctors that this
BOUp contains every sort of
nourishment needed, by the Hu
man frame.
The tomato sauce is home-
made, from ripe tomatoes.
Then the men go forth to their
[-varying occupation? in the vil-
lage or on .the sea. A a sea far
ing Nation the Italians have
been famous since long before
the first century of Christianity !
The women, their house-work
done, dress themselves neatly,
and sit 111 the sun at their cot*
tage doors, making lace. So, the
women are self-supporting. Yet
they care nothing about "The
Vote."
Their many children play
around them. They do not go
into service very often. In the
mountains in Liguria I had a
cottage with a friend whose
home it was. She could not get
a mil id servant. It was beneath
the dignity of the families of
those simple mountain people
to let their daughters go in-
to service.
But an old mother came.

cated girl with whom it was a
pleasure to talk.
At mid day these people eat
a piece of olive bread and per
haps an orange, with a drink of
clear water. At 6 P.M. they have
their last meal, Spagctti ; or
Kisottoja Irtfilthr meal con
taining the right kinds of nour

They do not go very early to
bed When they live near a city
they often walk inmany miles
and go to the opera,or to
the "movie." Every Saturday
night some ol the country peo-
ple go to the Grand Opera,
singing along the roads as they
return hotne.
They never drink tea, or coffee,
or cocoa. They n^ver eat meat,
or chicken, except once at
Christmas and at Eaeter. They
rarely touch milk or eggs, and
the wine they make is only tak-
en by themselves on rate occa
sions and on Sundays.
I speak of the general custom.
That there are some who drink
I don't deny,.- But the wine is
very good and there is very little

Saturday, Dec. 9th, 1916
Up to the time of writing'
no definite news of the recon-
struction of the Caoinet is to
haud. We wonder if by any
possibility the drastic step of
giving the "Professional
Politicians" a rest, and sub-
stituting an "Army Council"
with the King at its head is
contemplated.
Whatever happens, we can
trust the British Public to
keep its head and to prose-
cute the war till Germany
and her allies have been
brought to their knees. It
may take a long time, but we
mean to see it through, how-
ever long it takes or however
much it costs.
Roumania is still retreat-
ing, but the Berlin report of
the capture of 100,000
men must be taken cum gra
no salts. We are prepared to
accept that other item of
news from Berlin, to the ef
feet that the Roumanians
have decided to retire to
Moldavia, where they will be
in close touch with their
powerful ally the Russians,
far more readily. In any case
there is no cause for despair;
before long, Roumania, aided
by Russia, will be doing as
Servia is doing now,driv-
ing the invaders out again.
In the meantime the Germans
are weakening themselves by
enormouslv extending the
length of front they have to
defend.
Some of our young men arc
rather inclined to be a little
chary of joining the Home
Defence force unless they are
assured that they will not be
called upon to do this thing
or that. Others consider that
they should be given com-
missions, while others are
' uncerned ,as to the cut and
style of the uniforms to be
supplied. We trust that our
boys will rise superior to this
spirit of quibbling, and re-
member that if they really
wish to serve, they should at
least be prepared to do so un
conditionally.

taking, are under obligations to

the view of thoughtful, sober

manner as did President Wilson
recently, when he said: "We are

On the contrary, the prospect is
one of the blackest man has ever

The s.s. "Esperanza arriv

ent day events and see the se
riousness of their-culmination.
These sayings sound very much
like some utterance made by
oar Saviour so long ago, when
He told His disciples the condi
tio.is that would prevail upon
the earth just before His return.
In Matt. ^4,0,-7 we read, "And
ye shall hear of wars and rum- i
ors of wars......For nation shall
rise against nation and kingdom
against kingdom." This saying
is certainly fulfilled before our
eyes today, and shows the
Lord's coming near.
Again we read the following
in Luke 21:25,25, "And upon
the earth distress of nations
with perplexity......Mens hearts
failing them for fear and for
looking after those things that
are coming on the earth' "Then,
shall they see the Son of Man
coming in a cloud with power j
and great glory" The distress
and perplexity of millions
of people in the belligerent
countries are alread] beyond
description and growing worse
each day, and men are filled
with fear as they see what the
warlike preparations of the na-
tions will lead to. Truly the end
of all things is near.
We hear on every hand the
cry for preparedness. It is indeed j
a time to prepare, but it should
be to meet Our God in peace.'
The prophet says, "'Therefore!
thus will I do unto thee O Is- (
rael: and because I will do this
unto thee, prepare To meet thy
God, O Israel*' Amos 4:12 there
will be a company of people on
earth when the Lord comes, who
instead of preparing carnal vvea
pons with which to slay their!
fellow, beings, have prepared i
their hearts, by learning to love
God supremely, and their neigh '
hours as themselves, to welcome !
the Lord'sappearance.Such will
be able to look up and say, "Lo j
this is our God,; we have waited
for Hun and he will save us: j
this is the Lord we have waited !
for Him, we will be glad and re \
joice in His salvation" Isa. 25:9

Salvation nearer to us than
when we first believed. The
night is lar spent and the day is
at hand; let us therefore cast off
the works of darkness, and let
us put on the armour of light...

It is still impossible for non-

that I could hope to see yester

Upon the slopes beyond, to
the east of Sailly Saillisel, in
Sailly itself, and on the north

resolutely attacking, and the
guns behind us were supporting
them with deafening energy.

But one thing whs sufficiently
obvious. German as well as
French and British gunners were
doing effective work.
It is shells that do the damage
and shells, more than almost
anythii g else, which will win
the war. It would be a fatal
mistake to suppose that the (let
man artillery, whatever may
have been the case lately witii
their infantry, shows any signs
of Failing to hit back. It may
or may not be true that the re

But of one thing we may be
perfectly certainthat Hiuden

will this winter strain every
nerve to increase to the utmost
extent possible their supply of
the most important arm of mod

And that increase, unless all

PHILLIPIANS IV. 4. Rejoice
in the Lord alway, and again I
say rejoice.....The Lord isat
hand. On the threshold of the
Anniversary of the birthday ol
JesusChristJthe'Church strikes a
key note in the word Rejoice.
The Christian religion is intend
ed to give us true happiness and
the Advent of Our Saviour is a
cause for real joy. Christmas
has always been regarded as a
time of rejoicing, with its fami-
ly reunions and festivities. But
if we would have true Christian
happiness in this coming Christ
mastide we must remember the
meaning of the word Rejoice.
I. First, Christmas joy must
not be selfish. Real happiness
consists in making other people
happy, we shall try to do a good
turn to someone and we shall
make some sacrifice on their
behalf.
Again, our Christmas joy
must not lead to excess in eat
ing or drinking, or in any other
way. Some persons seem to
think that happiness consists in
gluttony and intemperance, and
so they sink below the level of
the beasts of the field. The dis
tinguishiug mark of Christimi
rejoicing is that it spring! from
an interior joy, in the heart, put
there by God Himself, and over-
flowing in acts of love and kind-
ness towards others. So it helps
us to overcome our natural sel-
sence in His Holy Sacrament.
Just as the Christian Church
has always known and always
taught that Jesus Christ is God
IncarnateThat is God the
Eternal Son has taken our llu
man Nature, so the Church has
always believed and taught
that, (in a wav which none can
explain, but which we do most
truly believe) there is an actual
Advent of Christ to believing
souls in His own Sacrament of
Holy Communion. He is at
hand there, in a most wonderful
and loving way, to gi"e each,
who with faith and love re-
ceives Him, the most intense
joy and a happiness, which
nothing earthly can equal.
When the Lord does finally
reveal Himself may He find us
as earnestly waiting for Him
then as we now anticipate the
temporary joys of the Christmas
festival.
Lift up your heart; lift up your
voice,
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice !
