WITH THE GUARDS' BRIGADE. Lieut.. Charles Symon, of the Coldstream Guards, in a letter to his father, Sir Josiah Symon K.C., describes with vivid simplicity some details of the great advance by the brigade of Guards on the Somme between .September 15 and 25. He tells-to use John Masefield's words --of "sweating in the trenches,dodg ing death and danger without rest, and of that "miseryand pain and joy and valour and brotherhood," lit up with cheeriness and quaint hu mour, which show. the breed of British soldiers at its best-and the world has nothing better.

The Parliamentary majority stand ing behind' him consisted, in addi tion to the old Manchester Liber als, of the Radicals, the Labour party, the not very numerous So cialists, and the Irish.
