SOME WAR COINCIDENCES. I Is it not remarkable, writes a corres-I pondent:- 1.—That the war should end where it began, and that Mons should be taken just before the signing of the Armistice. 2.—That the Kaiser, when he abdi- cated and fled to Holland, should have to run the gauntlet through the country he had devastated and ruined. 3.-That when the German Fleet were surrendering to the Grand Fleet our troops in Belgium were marching across the plains cf Waterloo. 4.—That the Armistice should be signed on the 11th day of the 11th month at 11 o'clock. 5.—That the Peace Conference should take place on January 18th, 1919, just 48 years from the date on which the German' Empire was proclaimed by an army of invasion in the Chateau of Ver- sailles. 6.-That the Treaty of should be signed on Saturday afternoon, exactly five years after the assassination of the Austrian Archduke Ferdinand, which thus gave the Kaiser the pretext for the war.
