li. Campbell, a teacher in the Hall-fax school for the blind, who Is in the city at present. Tho reason why such a large number of people were blinded, Mr. Campbell explains, Is that hundreds of persons were watching through windows the munition car-rlor, Mont Blanc, as she drifted, wrapped in smoke and flames, toward the land, before the explosion came, and the mighty quake of the blast shot their eyes full of powdered glass.

At thii lunch, Rlbot, since premier, eald to me: "In men, In fighting, we hold out, but we must have help the credit side." How much more than credit have sent. since to help beloved, beleaguered France! My interview with President Poln-rare of France was set for 6:30 In the Elysee Palace. 1 had tn watt some minutes in an anteroom, hung with splendid tapestries, where the secretary In charge Introduced me to Des-chanel, the secretaire perpetual of Academic Francals, with whom I had a few minutes' talk. The president sat In a Brnall, beautifully decorated room In thl historical Elysee Palace.

A small fire burned in the grate, a bit of grateful warmth in almost coalles Paris. Ho, too, piled me with questions, but not closely as others, about the land lelt behind. He spoke of -t gift of money made by Jcnes Still-man, a fund to heln the families of members of the Legion of Honor. Polncaro is man of 67, wears a smwtl beard (trowing- gray, Is a little under medium height (of this country) and has much the manner of an American lawer.

By JAMES W. GERARD (Copyright, 1918.) CHAPTER XXIV. Mr. Fabre-Luce, vice-president oil the Credit LyonnaJs, told us of an Interesting book written by a Russian and published before the war which predicted much that has happened in this war with almost the foresight of a Cassandra. 1 was so impressed that I secured a copy.

Thla book has never been translated Into English nor, so far as I know, reviewed In any publication In tha United States or Great Britain, but It had so great an effect on the Russian Czar that It wan the reading of this book which Impelled him to call the peace conference at The Hague. Ivan Stanlslavovlch Bloch, counsellor of the Russian empire, published In 1892 his book entitled, "The Future Wer." The author explains that It Is Impossible for the Powers to continue longer in the path of armaments, and that they ought to look each other In the face and demand whore these great armaments and this extension of forces are con-, ducting them. He writes: "In this war explosives so powerful will be employed, that every' grouping of troops on the flat country or even under the protection of fortifications will become almost Impossible, and that, therefore, the preparations of this character made in expectation of the war will become useless. "In the future war every body of troops holding itself on the defensive or found taking the offensive, when It Is not the question ot sudden assault, will have to fortify itself In a chosen position, and the war will bo confined principally to the form of a series of combats, in which the possession oi fortified position will be disputed and in which the assailant will have to meet the accessory defensives in the neighborhood of the fortifications, such as barricades, barbed wire, the destruction of these objects costing many victims, a The infantry, when on the defensive, will dig itself In. The conduct of the war will depend In a larger measure on the artillery." "No Man's Land" Forseen.

According to our author, who foresaw "No Man's Land," between the two opposing forces, "there will be forced a certain zone absolutely impassable in consequence of the terrible fire with which It will be inundated from a short distance from eah side." His prophetic eye saw even the submarine war of the future. "It will happen, possibly that the future war will produce engines of war completely unknown and unexpected at the present time; in any event, one can forsee the advent In a short time of submarines destined to carry below even Ironclads torpedoes powerful enough to wreck the strongest ships."

Theatrical performances were permitted In each theatre three times week. Evening dress ws prohibited. At one of the theattes I arrived early, but the cold was so bitter that even sitting In fur overcoat and with hat on I was so chilled I had to leave after twenty minutes.

This play was a revue, the actresses appearing the scanty costumes peculiar to that form of entertainment; but the cold was of such Intensity that they had added their street furs, presenting a curiously comical effect. Financiers Weak, Fighters Strong I spoke to myiy of the soldiers in the streets. All were animated by a new spirit in France, an obstinate calm, a determination to see this thging through, to end forever the fear of Prussian invasion which for many years had impended. If any sign of weakness was apparent it was among the financiers; not among the poor and the men of the trenches. At the railway station I talked with blue-clad French soldier, calm, witty, but determined.

He said: "My family comes from the east of France, my great-grandfather was killed by the Prussians in 1814, my grandfather was shot In his garden by the Prussians in 170, my father died of grief in 1916 because my two sisters Lille fell into Prussian hands and were taken as their slaves with all that that means. I have decided that we must end this horror once and for so that my children can cultivate their Utile fields without this constant haunting fear of the invading Prussian!"

AaW'y, HE The prQof of the value of boy workers on farms is that nearly every farmer who got boys in 1916 wanted them again in 1917. In 1916 a little over 2,000 boys went on the farms in Ontario. In 191J nearly 8,000 were demanded and this year more than 25,000 will be required.

Hundreds of letters from farmers have been received, speaking in the highest terms of the work done by the boys. In many, many cases no other farm labour was used because none could be had. Nor was any other needed because the boys did all the work well and willingly. This year Canada asks that no less than 25,000 boys shall enroll in the Soldiers of the Soil to help raise the food our Allies and armies must have to win the war. 25,000 volunteer boy workers will help very materially to solve Canada's farm labour problem.

Enrollment Begins March 17 and it is necessary that it be complete by March 23 so that the farmers of Canada will know for a certainty that this help will be forthcoming when it is needed, They can then go ahead with seeding, being assured of help for cultivating and harvesting.
