radius of ten miles Canadian troops
\ have been pouring into camps prepar

First cauie a long transport train j
composed of wagons drawn by traction j

now are in canip_, but only a few an- !

Spanish-American War Song
Those who listened heard a str*nge (
»edley. The notes of "It's a Long,!
Long Way to Tipperary," mingled with
the Spanish-American war favorite, j
'•There's Be a Hot Time in the Old!
Town Tonight," the latest American
rag time, among the chief tunes beinjf
"This Is the Life," also resounded in'
the quiet English dales.
Along the roads the troops every j

The people expecting a wild west dis-1
play however, were disappointed for;
with the exception of the sombreros
worn by the cavalry, the uniforms of
the Canadians are much the same as;
those of the English troops.
Several English territorial regiments
have been engaged in preparing the
camps and acting as convoy
corps. The greatest contrast between
these forces and the Canadians is the
difference in physique, the Canadians
being on an average much larger and j
stronger looking than the English.
Newsboy Stowaway as Bugler

who had stowed away on a transport.
This little chap, in spite of the fact
that he was almost lost in the folds of
an army coat loaned him by a good

hopes will give him a -chance to get to I

ago. it is nrabatole that Tier crew was
not up to the full complement. Aovord-.
ing to oue report she had only 400
abroad. Whatever the number only
fifty-two men were save,) and there
j was not a single commissioned officer
I among them.
The cruisers- Ampbion, Pathfinder,
j Aboukir, Cressy, Hogue, Pagasus and
! IHawke and the torpedo gunboat Speedy
i make up the dJritish formidable list of
[ losses in warshipo in the first ten weeks
of the war. Against this the British
| Admiralty claims four "Gemifyi cruisers,
I two torpedo boat destroyers, one tor
i pedo boat, three submarines and eight
aimuvl commence destroyers.
Omitting t'he armed merchantmen
the aggregated warships tonnage loss to
Kngland is, otg course, much greater
than that to Germany.
In both eases the lost ships with t'he
exception of the cruiser Aurphion and
the submarines, were older craft used
for scouting urposes. the ships intend
ed for tlho sterner work of a fleet action
' being held in safer waters for tlhe o.ay
when Germany elects to sally from be
hind her naval base of Helgoland.
According to reports received here
from Berlin Germany expects British
! dreadnoughts to play a part in the
defense of Ostend. Nothing else at the
present moment seems available to keep
; the invaders out of the' Belgian sea'port.
but of course events further south will
j decide the ultimate action with regard
I to Ostend.
FORBID KHEDIVE OF EGYPT
TO RETURN TO DOMINIONS
| Correspondence of the Associated Pi-ess.
Loudon, Oct. 9.—That the Khedive
■ of Egypt, who is now in Constantinople,
has been forbidden by the British gov
ernment to return to his dominious for
j the present is a belief current among
| Kuglishmen whe keep in touch with
| Egyptian affairs. The Khedive was in
J ■Constantinople visiting the Sultan
j when the war began and was tired upon
| and slightly wounded by an Egyptian
| political agitator. The loyalty of the
I Khedive to British rule is strongly
questioned by Anglo-Egyptians. His
I closest associates are members of the
j pro-Turkish party, which is under Ger
! man influence.
With 'Lord Kitchener absent from
| Egypt and most of the regular British
| garrison withdrawn for service in
| France, the opportunity for revolu
j tionary outbreaks is an unusual one.
: Under these circumstances it is possible
that Britain may use pressure to in
j duce the Khedive to prolong his visit in
I Constantinople until the close of the
war. or until events take a turn which
would insure British successes and dis
courage native plotting in Egypt.
There are 15,000 British territorials
in the garrisons of Egypt, who have re
placed the regular troops sent to
France. Other territorial regiments
j have been sent to India in exchange
| for regulars brought to Europe. Mal
ta, Gibraltar and other British ) o<ses
sions are now guarded by the territj.
ials. These regiments may be sent to
the front in their turn, after they have
undergone severe training and be re
placed by some of the newer recruits
now being broken in in English camps.

TYPHOID CASS ISOLATED
Health Department Officials Declare
There Is Mo Danger of An
Bpidemic In Hershey
The fact that a number of cases of
typhoid fever from Hershey and vicin
ity have receutly been treated in the
Harrisburg hospital, led to the inquiry
at the State Health Department to
day as to whether the disease has been
considered epidemic in that locality.
Dr. B. F. Rover, chief medical in
spector, said that the disease is not
epidemic at Hershey, but at intervals
there have been about ten cases report
ed, and there may be more. The disease
has made its appearance in certain
P«rts of the Lebanon Valley where
some wells are declared to be bad and
the water not fit to drink. Dr. Royer
and Dr. Phillips went to Derry town
ship recently and made an investiga
tion as to the cause of the disease and
found an old spring, the flow from
which had been diverted when the orig
inal channel had been closed up. The
water seeped into a depression some
distance away, and being very clear
and cold was used by people in the
vicinity instead of ice water. It was
full of germs that were considered
dangerous. The flow was shut off and
the spring posted with a warning that
the water should not be used.
"Of late," said Dr. Royer, "there
has been a sprinkling of cases but no
epidemic, and we apprehend no serious
Three cases of typhoid were report
ed to the department from Enola this
morning, and one from West Fairy iew,

Ten cases have been reported from
rower City, near the towns in Upper
Dauphin, and they are supposed to
have been caused by impure milk.
There is no serious epidemic and the
cases are isolated.
