'Tiro thincB Ere essential to the realisation of the progress we seek— the declaration of a principle and its incarnation in action.'— JUzzisi, Sir— In view of the terrible armaments that all the powerful nations, especially the so called Christian natioDB of the earth are far niELiog themselves with, many of us are teverely etrained to eee our way to a practical position on the subject of the defence of the colony. If Australia becomes an object of attack the power we in South Australia possess of defending ourselves is small. Toe question is on the lips of not a few— is it worth our while to defend ourselves? Ib not our very weakneEB our strength ? Are we not too poor aod too insignificant to attract attention? It is no doubt true that our numbers and our wealth are insignificant, bat Australia is no longer the u^knos-n and distant land it once wa«, and its possession is no longer a matter of indifference to a great nation.

If we knew of a bueh fire endangering our homestead, would we not strain every mueele to battle against it ? Or if we thought there was any danger of burglars paratioDs to give them a warm reception ? Then where lies the difference?
