There was a picture in the papers recently of Enid
Bennett, movie star, using the telephone. Miss Bennett is a fine actress, and she surely knows liow to use
a telephone, but in this illustration she had her face
turned away from the transmitter. Perhaps she was
posng, but it might have suggested to someone that
her method was the proper one when telephoning.
When you telephone, talk directly into the instrument, with your lips an inch or so from the transmitter.
Then you will have to talk in an ordinary tone, and the
person at the other end will be able to hear you

There is one judge in Quebec who
regards desertion from the army in
time ot war as a serious offence. While
Justice Lnngelier became notorious
tor leniency to evaders and deserters
with his five dollar lines, Judge Cus-
son, at Montreal, felt it to be his duly
to impose lines of $260 or a jail sentence as an alternative. No wonder
Alphonse Racine expressed his "deep
astonishment" at his sentence. Judge
Leet at the same time held a sort of
bargain counter court and let the deserters off for (25 and $50 each, ln
one case Judge Leet let a man oil
with a Une of one dollar. And Judge
Lanctot is not much more severe.
There are thousands of deserters
In Quebec to be dealt with a year after
the fighting ended. Some of htem are
still afraid to come out of the woods.
They are watting for a general amnesty. The Trades aud Labor Council
of Quebec, composed almost exclusively of French-Canadians, decided to
appeal to the Prince of Wales for a
general amnesty for the absentees
under the Military Service Act. They
seem to have a strange idea of thc
position of the Canadian government
in matters of that kind. And their
conception of the Prince of Wales is
somewhat peculiar. He Baw what the
Canadian corps had to endure at the
front, That experience must have
given him contempt for the deserter
as deep as his admiration for the
gallant fellows who enlisted for the
great cause.
The Incident reveals the inability of
the French-Canadians to understand
the enormity of their offence, or their
monumental Impudence in asking tho
Prince to interfere with the administration of what is a purely local
affair. We have no doubt that the
clerical leaders of Quebec are straining every nerve to secure immunity
for the deserters. They may succeed
for the Prime Minister's desire to
please Quebec has become almost an
obsession. But whatever is done in
that direction will be by act of parliament and that Involves a free discussion of the whys and wherefores.—

Standing, sitting and walking correctly

^ LL women wish to be well; but all women
do not appreciate the vital importance
Lof correct corsctry as an essential to
good health. The well-known medical
authority, Alice S. Cutler, M.D., warns us:
"As a physician who knows that if it were
not for ill-fitting and the wrong kind of
corsets we would have very few female in
valids, I am naturally determined to do
everything in my power to educate women
in the proper fitting of corsets. Most
learned physicians now recognize the modern
corset as a hygienically healthful garment
and one that is often the best means ol providing corrective support for many bodily
The Original-Unequalled Front Lacing Corsets
have attained their unquestioned superiority
by assisting nature to perfect expression.
Every Gossard is hygienically correct. Properly fitted to tlie figure for which it was
designed it will give scientific support to
abdominal and back muscles, with no chance
of undue pressure at the waistline; the organs
of nutrition will be free from pressure; the
erect posture which is induced will encourage
deep breathing and tlie diaphragmatic mus
cles become strong with use. A woman so
corseted will have the undeniable beauty of
health and that grace of body, standing,
sitting, or walking, which is best expressed
in the one word, style.
Wc unreservedly recommend Gossard Corsets
as the complete expression of modern corsctry.
