England is Doing her Share The presistent attacks of the Germans and anti-English Irish among U3 on Great Britain since the beginning of the war have also been directed toward mak ing France, Canada, the United States, and every one else possi ble dissatisfied with Great Brit ain's share in the war. The facts do not substantite this charge. Great Britain has 45,000,000 population, in contrast with 39, 000,000 for France, 36,000,000 for Italy, 175.000,000 for Russia and somewhat more than 100, 000,000 for us. This 44.000,000 has furnished a far larger proportion of the naval strength and shipping than any other nation, and has done ! this from' the beginning of the war. This has also necessitated bearing most of the odium at tached to the blockade which was for the general benefit of all the Allies as well as England. From the beginning, also they have furnished more money than any other nation. In the first two years of the war they did not furnish as many men as either France or Russia, but at present the Brit ish army in France is about as large as the French. The Brit ish have, besides an army in Egypt, another as Saloniki (as have also the French) and anoth er in Mesopotamia. Moreover, the British Isles have furnished as many men in proportion and suffered is great losses as any of their colonies, besides putting forth an extraordinary industrial effort. The World's Work.

Bravm of a Soldier Boy "Private Peat" a veteran of the European war, in an address at Lexington, told how he woke, wounded in a Red Cross camp. Cries were heard, he said, and he thought he was in Germany. He did find, he declared, that the man screaming, was a "fat German with a wounded arm." "Across the room," he pictur ed, a little Cockney boy, a drum mer not nore than 16 years old, seated on a chair. H is leg was cut off, his face gashed, his arm fal len at- hi3 side. In his mouth was a cigarette and he was cracking a joke. That shows the difference between the Ally and the Hun. The doctor came in. He went first to the German. That shows the way our Rad Cross treats our enemy. The German, crying, received atten tion. When the doctor finished the drummer boy had fallen in his chair and was dead." Open Shops Upheld.
