FIGHT ON, YE GALLANT -" WARRIORS! Fight on, ye gallant warriors Of many a hard-fought field;' Ye Champions of Freedom's cause Who ne'er were known to yield. See, far aloft, the grand old flag The wide world floating o'er, Tho' the battle rages wilder, than It ever raged before. Oft,: oft, you've fought the treach 'rous foe On land, and on the wave; Where far and near around the earth In numbers sleep the brave. Victorious, still, your arms shall be On ocean and on shore, Tho' the battle rages wilder, than It ever raged before. You met the furious rush from Mons, You fought 'gainst odds tenfold, .Till by the dark and turbid Marne, Your dauntless valor told. Undaunted, still, you'll force the foe From France's troubled shore, Tho' the battle rages wilder, than It ever raged before. Far, far to East the tumult rolls, Unceasing on the breeze; The thunder of the mighty strife Vibrates the Orient seas. Yet, yet, shall fall, yon hard-held gate Beneath your cannons roar, Tho' the battle rag...

Efficiency--Farmers demand the best up-to-date equipment in the way of farm implements and ma chinery for the economical opera tion of their farms. They insist that the genius of the inventor shall be constantly on duty seeking out improvements in plows, harrows, seeders, "cultivators, harvesters and other equipment of the farm. For these things they are willing to pay fair prices, but they must have the best of the things that add to the efficiency of farm management. Strangely enough, however, they are sometimes content with live stock equipment that is neither economical nor efficient as a complement-the most important complement of all to farm operation. Said a farmer recently, I always make it a point to carry a little memorandum book in my pocket and make notations of th...

He left somewhat abruptly, for he was annoyed; and he was one of those men who never take the trouble to hide their annoyance. But Lord Alces ton knew that he would keep his word and let him go without protest. On the following morning the papers contained a somewhat strange an nouncement. The reward of one thou sand pounds for the discovery of Phil lip Neillson was withdrawn without any explanation. The inference was obvious. The authorities no longer be lieved in his guilt, and though Scot land Yard had not been compromised ,by the offering of the reward, the search for the missing man became weak and half-hearted. The one pos sible clue was swept away, and the murderers of the Earl of Alceston and of the unknown woman in the East End were still at large. The papers had plenty to say abotit it, and Scot land Yard very little. The Chief un sp...
