He is the typical gentleman in the true moaning of that much overworked term. His un affected, suuny, geniality is infecti ous, and, while ho is capable main taining the dignity of bis office, ho is ono of the best of illustrations of the fact that the Britisher is not always the arrogant, self-satisfied individual that foreign peoples delight to depict him. But with all his sang froid, Sir Arthur Stanley has, since the out break of the war, proved time and again that he is tho stuff of which statesmen are made, llis broad sane outlook, uud virile patriotism, have done much of what bus been done to bring ubout a true perspective of the posit...

In London they arc describing Jliss Violet Markham's views ns ''Spartan nil vice from a wonifiu,'1 She thinks the Londoners show too many outward signs of fear of invasion, and she ex presses her opinions on things in gen eral iu a letter to a London journal;— Loudon is left in Cimmerian dark ness owing to somo anticipation of a Zeppelin raid (sho writes). Personally I deprecate this darkening of our capi tal in view of possible bombs from pro blematical airships.

What hurts our pride is the thought of Berlin, capital of a country unprotected by t...
