Were this statement made by a private indi vidual it would simply indicate either that he was callously indifferent to the bodily and mental sufferings of his fel low beings, and the sad human tra gedies which drive the light and life out of so many lives, leaving naught behind but saddend memories tempered by the hopes of eternity; or that the itterev's indifference rested on' a stolid incapacity to realise in any .respect the gravity of his words. -What is the '.real purport of tlat iexpression when' it is "the deliberae "'outpouring of an officeial mind it.is.extremely diffi cult to understand.

But it is not my fault, nor is it yours, but the fault of an evil chance which caused you to know more about my affairs than is good for your com fort. I wish you no ill, and only locked you up with little food and no fire, in order that you may fully real ise my power over you, and the more readily follow my instructions."

Chelsea, which was recently the scene of a big blaze, when some 300 houses, bungalows and tents were burnt out, had a narrow escape, from a second fire early this morning, when Brook's general store and bakery caught fire and was completely de stroyed. When the fire bell rang famp ers were seized with something ap proaching a panic, and furniture from bungalows, tents, and camps were has tily bundled out onl to the/ road or beach by half-clad campers. The ti tree is very dense, and the danger of another destructive blaze was immi nent, as the sparks from the burning building flew in showers amongst the trees. A squad of Deutseher Turn Verein members turned out with axes and cut a big break between the fire and the scrub, and though Brooks lost his bakehouse, Chelsea having no wa ter, the spread of the flames was pre vented.

This change is accepted as proof that the wash will not be too heavy for opening-up opera tions. It is expected that the work ings will be into the wash towards the end of wse week.
