SILENT JOHN AT THE ADMIRALTY. 8ingled out by Lord Fisher, the father of the modern British navy, -for special attention in his younger days, Admiral Sir John Jellicoe "Silent John" to give him the name by which he is affectionately known by the British Jack Tar-has been elneated to the chief post at the Admiralty, -and has had the Order of Merit conferred upon him. On sea and land he has earned a fine reputation as fighter and adminis trator, reformer and commander,and by many ardent admirers he has been hailed as the modern Nelson. Only since the war began, and the - navy at Heligoland, Dogger Bank and Jutland has had its few chances of disclosing to the world what an all-powerful factor it is in the allies' cause, `has the Briton at home and abroad come to cherish the name of "Jellicoe." A sure sign of fame is the dropping of the Christian name by the British public. What name is better known at the present time than that of Jellicoe ?

Pert Cockney humour has full pl.y to-day over the announcement in Parliament last night that in future we are to have no white bread.What, war bread is to be no one seems exactly to know, but long before this letter reaches you we shall all know.

But we have not yet come to eating the war bread of the Boche. Our bread, so report has it, is to be part wheat and part maize, and already we are assured that the mixture will make pleasant loaves. The Government committee responsible cannot have chosen the mixture -hastily. Com mittees do nothing in a hurry: the days go calmly with them. I -can imagine the members sitting, each with an. experimental loaf upon clean blotting paper, nibbling critic ally at. crusty bits, thought...
