RAIN OR SHINE OVERCOATS. 1 Before weaving, each thread of the material from which these Coats are made, is subjected to a chemical steeping process, which renders it non-absorbent to rain. After weaving, in whirh extraordinary care is taken that the threads of warp and weft closely, interlace, the cloth is again steeped in the chemical solution. The result is a fabric which has all the wet- resisting qualities of rubber without its drawback. In cut and tailoring these coats are eminently satisfactory. They are shaped on I ample lines to ensure ease of motion and freedom from restraint. As illustration or with Raglan Shoulders.

The Day of Retribution. < j < Accumulatin g misfortunes and increas- ( ing trials only serve to fortify the I resolve of the Russian nation, and the I example of unshaken courage set by our gallant comrades in the Eastern theatre of war has called forth the unstinted sympathy of all their partners in the Grand Alliance. Each member of that Alliance in turn has borne its share of the desperate onslaught of the war- engine which Prussian craft has been preparing for so many years, and each in turn has suffered heavily in meeting the shock. But for noble and uncon- querable Russia a peculiarly bitter ex- perience has been reserved. In the first stages of the war, while the main efforts of the Prussian brute were still concen- trated upon mutilating the corpse of peaceful Belgium, and charging with bloodthirsty rage against the barriers so effectually interposed by Joffre and French, Russia gained successes which surpassed the best hopes of her military commanders. But they were successes which must make her present sacrifices all the harder to bear. To see Poland turned into a second Belgium, and its fortresses battered down as were Liege and Namur, and to withdraw again to her main frontier defences in the face, not of superior gallantry or generalship, but of sheer weight of metal and machinery, is grievious enough for Russia. But to suffer these cruel reverses after having swept victoriously through Galicia, captured Lemberg and Przemysl, and almost grasped the key to Silesia, is disappointment which might well still a lesser people's heart. But Russia will not permit herself to quail or falter for one instant. She has made it clear that in this struggle neither territory nor fortresses count beside the one main purpose of keeping her splendid armies mobile, active, and unbeaten in the field. The normal valuations of conquests and defeats are put clean out of her mind. Russia is prepared to tolerate any number of spectacular German triumphs, to retire any distance into her limitless plains, so that she may keep her splendid forces intact, organised, and ready against that terrible day of retribution which will surely come upon the invader, as surely as the dawn follows the night, when the tide of German success slackens, stops, and at last begins to ebb. For solid courage, singleness of aim, and ordered strategy the world has seldom witnessed anything like this vast Russian fighting retreat before the Austro-German armies. In the darkest hours of the crisis the Russian nation has never lost faith in its defenders or in itself. It is content to suffer and to wait, and neither German siege-guns nor German guile can for a moment shake its determination to hold out and win. That determination rings clear in the latest pronouncement of the Russian Foreign Minister. M. Sazonoff has categorically silenced the talk —inspired from Berlin-of the possibility of his Government making a separate peace. Twice already, he declares, has Germany made overtures of that kind, and on each occasion she has been met with an absolute negative." The object is plain to sow dissension among the Allies; and that, as M. Sazonoff con- temptuously remarks, is a futile German hope which will in no event be realised." It is quite plain that the naval action in the Gulf of Riga ended in serious disaster for the German fleet; and the result of it has been hailed with special rejoicing in this country in that there is reason to believe that Brirish submarines were enabled once more to lend valuable aid to our gallant Allies in a fight against heavy odds. There is also good ground for believing that since the engagement, on the Russian side, was a matter of small craft, the Russian Baltic fleet itself has escaped serious damage. At any rate, the grandiose German plan for a landing on the Esthonian coast, in order to get behind the Russian land commun- ications and menace Petrograd itself, has ended in a conspicuous and costly failure; a failure, moreover, which may be assumed, without undue optimism, to bring sensibly nearer that day of retribu- tion for which Russia is fighting, and watching, and waiting with such magni- ficent endurance.
GLASBURY. Boy SCOUTS.-The local troop of Boy Scouts this year camped for a week at Erwood. Owing to the war, the Scouts' Association found that it was not possible to organise large oamps, as the majority of soout masters are now serving their King and country, so raany troops organ* ised their own camps. The "boys went by themselves aud managed the camp, which speaks well for the discipline of the Scoot movement. It is interesting to not,e that the Qlasbury Scouts have collected about 5,000 eggs for the wounded soldiers since the com- mencement of the war. NATIONAL SOCINTY.-Last Sunday the canse of the National Society for Church Education was pleaded in St. Peter's Church. Special preachers were announced but, at the last moment, were unable to fulfil their engage- ments. The Rev William Roberts, who is taking duty for the vicar, preached and made an appeal for help for the Society's needs. <
