ALLESTREE. (From a correspondent) Although the war scar has mixed matters up considerably about the dis trict, causing a slight slump in the ob taining of work by the many idle hands at present about. ail the Government works are stil' being (proceeded with, and good, steady work is being done at the quarries near the Gorae siding. These works are not just yet employing as many hands as many are under the impression they are doing. It was stated some short time ago that a fairly large gang of men would be required to carry on the work, but at present they are only opening out the stone in the lines leading to the several trial pros pec's, the largest one, giving a very promising show of stone, unning about east, and this is being vigorously opened out, and as soon as a fairly large face has been exposed no doubt a good many more hands will be required. From what I saw of the stone some few days ago, it is of good quality and of the boulder stamp. There are several other excavations ...

WHY WAR CAME. INTERESTING HTSTORIY. For the origin of the war, which has now broken out between "3rent Britain and Germany, it is necessary to go back to more tl.an half a century before the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand by Servian desperadoes. The event of six weeks ago was merely the pretext upon which Germany's ally, Austria-Hungary, acted to preci pitate the crisis A clash between Ger many sad Great Britain has for many years been regarded by those who best understoed the former's ideal andjworld policy as being inevitable, though for obvious reasons such a view always pro voked official discouragemegt in both countries. About the middle of the 19th cen tury, Bismarck, the King of Prussia's iron Chancellor, conceived the idea of making that State the nucleus of a great German confederation, and of making thatconfederation when formed, the leading power in the world. He had studied the Napoleonic movement carefully, and believed he could:succeed where the great Co...
