Rev. Roland Cotton Smith of St. John's Episcopal church officiated at the services, which occupied only half an hour's time.-_ Shortly afterward, the most dra matic event of the day occurred when Dr. J. Ramsey Nevitt, the cor oner, laid away in the folds of the shroud two notes and the mysteri ous trinkets found on Mrs. Loril-, lard's body after her death. Con trary to the general understanding, Mrs. Lorillard wrote neither of the notes after she returned from the Townsend dinner. It is now believed that the only words she wrote on the morning of her death was on an en velope that contained the notes and the trinkets. They were: "Bury this with my body, unopen ed." The ink with which the words were written had been freshly ..smeared', over the face of the envelope. Its freshness was in marked con trast with the ink of the two notes. Another fact that has been brought out is that one of the note*'.waa addressed to Mrs. Lorillard and was in the handwriting of another per son. The second note had been writ ten by Mrs. Lorillard evidently many days before her df^h.* The ^*°*e to Mrsi Lorillard Is saidWhavelSeeto addressed to her in an informal way. The trinkets consisted of a chain, to which was attached some pendants of little intrinsic value, reminding those who have beheld them of the high school days of girls. It was evidently Mrs. Lorillard's hope that neither the notes nor the trinkets would be revealed to human eye af ter hers had turned from them.

Hearty Approval Through Canada of the Proposal to Offer National Assistance to Navy ot Great Britain TWO 6ATTLESHSIPS OF THE DREADNAUGHT TYPE Growing Feeling That Canada Should Contrihute Something to the Protection Enjoyed From British Fleet Members of the government and of parliament received many messages from all parts of the Dominion to day expressing approval of the pro posed action and urging that the as sistance offered be on a generous scale and consistent with Canada's claim of being the premier self-gov erning colony of the British empire.

Mayor Rose, at the recent Louis ville convention, challenged the na tional prohibition party to produce its best orator to meet him on the question debated tonight. The de bator was the accredited representa tive of the national prohibition party against Mayor Rose, who is general ly known as an advocate of "sane'" regulation of saloons.

Second, there is a widespread feel ing of resentment toward Germany which has been growing for the last ten years, or ever since Germany de clared a tariff on Canada. When tins country gave Great Britain a tariff preference Germany imposed a surtax against Canadian products, which was replied to by Canada en acting a prohibitive tariff rate against Germany's products. The disclosure by the British first lord of the admiralty last week of Ger many's national program and a state ment that it was a challenge to Brit ish supremacy on the seas, aggra vated this feeling.
