OINT GREY had a tax sale this spring and
the council staled that it was a splendid success.    Investors from far and near camped

Now the Municipality is trying to get in the taxes
which are in arrears from the date up to which the
tax sale covered. They have tried coaxing the people, cajoling the people, threatening the people and,

people pay up.

Our trouble started nearly three years ago when
the money lords began to lighten their purse strings.
The Municipality had participated in the prosperity
of the Province, which was an artificial prosperity
made up from tha overflow of prosperity from the
sister Provinces. When the sister Provinces began
to slacken up, British Columbia was hit, and this
Municipality, being a community of working men
without visible means of support, without ihe solid
foundation upon which the structure of a city should
be built, was firsl to feel the blow.
Then followed municipal unrest in Vancouver
and on towards thc East. Some days ago we were
informed that Montreal was about to go into the
hands of the receiver.   The reason given is that they
Grey would like to tear the head of the reeve, but
even ihey, though they are being subjected to somewhat humiliating treatment, will see a grain of good
in Reeve Harvey's actions.
N a recent report, Mr. Page S. Bunker, formerly
of the U. S. Forest Service and now Forest
Warden and City Forester for Fitchbuvg, Mass.,
calls attention to some popular misconceptions relative to the control of the Jore*;t fire menace. Mr.
Bunker's statements are equally applicable to conditions in Canada, and especially so to the lower
mainland of  Bntish Columbia, where  the inhabi
are not our churches and convents; that the women
and girls who are violated are not our daughters
and wives; that the nuns who have been submitted
to the most horrible treatment are not our nuns. It
may be true that they are not our buildings, our
crops, our churches that are destroyed, but is there
anyone who will say that it does not matter that those
girls, women and nuns, are not ours and we should
not interfere?    I do not believe one of you Cana-
vestment is made on these lands where quality and
situation guarantee a profitable crop. In each province the area of timber-land is very great.    The j dians who are listening to me would dare to make

tion, are so variable that no rule of thumb methods j
may be safely adopted.    The Forest Branch must
include men trained to, and free to study, each of
these problems, in order that loss of revenue may be
prevented, and the most economical possible scheme
j of administration and protection worked out for
I each section of the country. In no case are these
i matters being handled as yet on a really adequate
'ia?is.     In particular,  there  is everywhere  needed
closer atlention to organization, coupled with larger
appropriations.    The latter are necessary in order

What the upshot of the whole thing will bc, it
would take a very wise man to fathom.   We have
to the detriment of forest protection. One of these
fallacies is found in the general impression thai the
best time to fight a forest fire is at night. It is well
to correct this belief by staling that' the best time to
fight a forest fire is all the time that it is burning.
This principle should be taken in its literal sense

which says that municipalities shall pay usurious
rates for money, which forces reeves to issue writs

This is the financial power in Canada which givelh

SOUTH VANCOUVER'S reeve was neutral
on the brewery issue.
Neutrality is' always a safe refuge for the
weakling. If Britain had been neutral the German
legions would likely have had all Europe pretty
well subjugated this afternoon.
If some of the great leaders of the reeve's race
had been neuters, the world would never have got
out of night.
One must either be a man or a mouse. No strong
man was ever a neuter.
In the launching of the local brewery, the people
of South Vancouver were the B
of Barleycorn were the German hordes, the reeve
was the man who might have played the part of
Johnny Bull.
"I am neutral," whines the reeve. Such is the
whine that put John Barleycorn on several thrones
in Europe. Such is the whine that tickles the red
ears of the devil.
"Those who are not with us are against us"���-and
the reeve maybe knows where that quotation comes
even in small amounts, is one of the most practicable
and effective means of checking a fire. Still another
erroneous belief which, while not as generally accepted as the others, nevertheless needs correction,
is that the point of attack should be along the Hanks
of a fire, working towards its head. In practically
cvery case, the logical point from which to attack the
fire is in front of it, checking its head and laler working down the flanks.
Perhaps the greatest fallacy of all is thc belief
accepted in many quarters that the extinction of a.
forest fire can best be attempted through the indis-! Puljnc men have done.
SUBSCRIBER the other day expressed
the opinion that the newspapers did not publish enough war news. He thought too
much space was given in the English cablegrams to
the movements of Canada's public men and too little attention paid to the achievements of Canada's
fighting men. Well, the public men- he referred
to Premier Borden and General Sam LIughes���are
about to return to Canada. The people of England
have feted them because they represent Canada,
and Britain appreciates what Canada has done.
An Ottawa report says, in reference to the Premier's return: "Il is proposed to have a welcoming
that will last all the way from the ocean's edge lo
Ottawa, and a demonstration absolutely non-parti-
zan in character will be sought."
The main thing during these war days and other
days is to think about the chief things, namely, what
is shown by the. 70,000 and more young men of this
country who have rushed to the colors to avenge
those women and nuns and deliver Europe out of
the clutches of German barbarity. If there are any
who say or think that the war in Europe is none of
our business, I am sorry for his state of mind, and I
am proud to declare I do not share his mentality."
Conservative and Liberal newspapers are praising the war utterances of the respective Canadian
party leaders.
What we need in Canada today is unity, absolute
unity. Every man must bury his party differences
while the war is on. Premier Borden is a man of
sincerity, and the duty of,every man is to help the
Government. A sincere effort has been made to
stop the boodling in connection with war contracts,
and the Premier is after the scalps, through Sir
Charles Davidson���a trusted judge���of the scoundrels who took advantage of the war to line their
filthy, disloyal pockets with stolen money.

Another lay impression, which has resulted in
much loss, is that a fire which is not spreading at
the moment is under "control." This term has little

South Vancouver  Board of  Trade
Receives Report From President
Al the lasi regular meeting ol ilu-
South Vancouver Board of Trade, the
following report was presented to anil
] received by ihe full board:
Re Establishment of Brewery
In submitting to you a brief report
covering my connection as an official
of the board with the establishment
of the above industry in this Municipality, I very keenly realize that
same will call forth considerable comment, favorable and otherwise.    Some
] weeks since. Reeve Gold introduced
to me a Mr. George E. Slater, who, he
advised, was looking for a site on
which to operate a brewery and cold
storage plant; Mr. Slater asked if the
I Board of Trade was able to offer to
his company any concessions, free site,
water, etc. After some conversation
with him, T slated that neither this nor
any other II. C. municipality were able
lo give free taxation or water to prospective industries without a bylaw
being first put to and carried by Unpeople, and quoted to him the Municipal act relative to same.    Mr. Slater

further  stated  that  he   had  selected
some possible sites, both in .Vtirlh and
South Vancouver and elsewhere, and
was going to make final selections
and secure an option on same. At a
later date Mr. Slater called upon im-
and showed to me a receipt covering
a payment on two acres of land on
Ontario Street which he had purchased from the C. P. R., and again stated
that lu held both Dominion and Provincial licenses io manufacture, sell
and export beer, etc.. and now merely
wished to secure a license to operate
his brewery in onr Municipality. Application for such license was made
to the license commissioners, lo whom
I introduced Mr. Slater. Without persuasion or intimidation on my part,
tlie Board of License Commissioners,
without a dissenting voice, saw fit
to grant such application.
In my dealings with Mr. Slater, I
did nol permit my personal theory
on the liquor question to predominate,
but as president of this board extended to him the courtesy to which I
feel he was justly entitled.

All the Company's telephones are-available for service

These words sound strange from the
lips of Jesus Christ, and we must be
careful not lo misunderstood them.
Throughout His whole career on earth
He had taught His disciple's that their
triumph was not to be won by violence, but by character. Cruel war is
incompatible with the
Ideals of the Prince of Peace;
and when His ideals arc accepted, and
put   into   practice,   nations   will   learn
war no more.
At the same time, even Christ shows
the fighting spirit sometimes, and will
not accept peace at any price. While
He refuses to embark on mere selfish
quarrels, and visits with care the humblest and most needy souls, His indignation blazes forth against greed and
hypocrisy, and making a lash for the
backs of the desecrators of His Temple, He drives them out. He is angry
at the proper time because He *'s
merciful; because His supreme passion, at whatever cost, is to sweep
earth clean of the evils which defile

and even though we do not hear the

given some proof of the belief tllat

are now across the sea. or making
ready to go. But I fear that many oi
our youth have not yet seriously considered the question whether they cannot do something, directly or indirectly, to strengthen our national resources in this epoch-making hour.
Why should we not have at least

will make Ypres, St. Julien and I.angc-

I am persuaded that, apart from the
martial re-enforcement wh.ch would
thus be brougnc to our cause, such an
awakening of Canadian manhood, such

call of patriotism has been so far disregarded, and private interest held of

Xow the sooner this easy-going selfish spirit is driven out, the belter for
us all. Whether we buy a sword or
not by selling our garment,  it  will lie

we might even dispense for a while
the elaborate snorting columns in mir
newspapers. They do not fit in very
well with the
Cablegrams from across the Sea.
We have serious tasks confronting
us as a people; and if we fail to discern their importance, and lo try. as
best we can, to discharge them, any
attempt at lighter fun is nothing but
a  hideous and disgraceful  mockery.
Under certain circumstances, "safety first" is an excellent motto. Il is
pure foolishness for any one to run
risks which can be of no benefit either

have any dealings with it. But, in the

Another interesting debate Umk
plai, al the si cond mei tinu of the
Citizens' Club, and quite a few new
members were enrolled. Citizen Jones
presided, and asked the members
what they though! of Reeve Gold's
apologj in the Press for the action of
the License Commissioners in granting ;i brewery license.
Citizen Robinson���It seems to me
Reeve Gold would have well advised
to say nothing; because, as tin.- old
French proverb has it: "He who excuses himself, accuses himself." And
i notice the reeve is very careful to
shift any blame from his own shoulders
onto those of his colleagues on the
License Board nnd Mr. Bruce of the I
Board of Trade If Reeve Gold I
thought it necessary to make a public .
statement, he should have confined
his remarks to the facts and circum-
st; nces leading up to tin- granting of
tin license; but the reeve K'X-'-i further ;
than that. Hi- attempts to give the
impression that hi- was neutral, nnd j
only bowed In tin- "ill of the majority
uf the council and tin- license board. I
Thai is where Reeve Gold overreaches j
himself. I Iv is too clever by half;.
consequently hi- spoils his effort by
attempting to prove loo much. He
tries to make the public believe there j
was ��no secrecy about tin- granting ot"
thc license and that his own hands are
clean. As to secrecy, the facts speak
for themselves���neither the press nor
the public had any inkling of what
was going on and those who were in
thc know were all pledged to secrecy.
Then too. ii run he proved, if necessary, that nt the final meeting nf the
commissioners, when the license was
���.'rallied, one man who entered the
council chamber while the meeting
was in progress was notified hy a
member of thc hoard that his presence was not desired, and ho left the
room. That wouid not have happened
if the meeting had been open nnd
above board. The facl is. all concerned in the granting of the license wished to loep the public in ignorance of
what was going on until the business
in Hand was definitely settled. If
Reeve Gold had wished the public to
I now. he woidd not have left the chair
at the council meeting when tin
Trades' License Bylaw was amended,
but.would have remained and directed
attention to the object of thc amendment.
Citizen Smythe���As Robinson says.
Reeve Cold is too clever by half, and
he tries to run a bluff on the public
hy insinuating that he was neutral,
and that there was no secrecy. I was
present at the council meeting when
the final reading was given to the
Trades' License Bylaw, as amended,
and T noticed the reeve was very careful to ask as iu- returned to the conned chamber, after asking Councillor
Campbell to take the chair while he
had a smoke, whether thc bylaw had
been passed. .On being told that it
had. he took thc chair again.
Citizen Mackenzie���Tlie whole incident reminds me of a quotation 1
saw recently from thc London "Daily
News." It was something like this,
so 'far as 1 can remember: "Please do
not sniff at principle. It is one of
those old-fashioned things which is a
little mil of favor wilh our pragmatic
young men; but the statesman lhal iv
(without it is as dangerous .is the
mariner who is without a c -nipass.
The peril of the democracy in .'J! ei,unities is lhal il i- so easily (ni led bj
���lie unscrupulous adventurei whose
life is an assertion of the Candidate's
Creed:��� _
1 don't believe in princerpli.
But oh. I du in interest ���
ihc sort of gentleman who. with a
great gift of demagogic speech, lives
i n ihe emotions of the crowd and can
only be said never to have deserted a
principle, because he never had a
principle to desert. Let democracy de-
maud less rhetoric and more principle from ils leaders." There is a
moral in that that South Vancouver
citizens will do well to lake to heart
and remember at the next municipal
election. I have watched the council
pretty closely this year and the tiling
that has struck me as most lacking
was a strong man of principle. And
I have come to thi- conclusion���that
ii i- time ihe affairs of South Van-
couver were in the hands of men of
principle instead of nun who seem to
be guided by no principle except that
of self-mterest and self-glorification.
That may seem to he a sweeping assertion, and possibl) it is a little too
sweeping, as there are one or two men
on the present council to whom u does
not apply. Bul, speaking generally,
tin- actions of th present councillors
stamp them as self-interested vote-
seekers with an eye on the reeveship
and the indemnity of *2.(lt)() a year.
That $2,0QO a year is going lo lie the
curse "f tlie municipality, ii 1 am not
Citizen Browne���I am inclined to
think Mackenzie i- right. I'm, where
are wc to find disinterested men of
principle with the time necessary to
devote to the administration of municipal affairs?
Citizen Mackenzie���I have given
this matter considerable thought and
1 must confess it is somewhat difficult
to pick out eight good business men.
residing in South Vancouver, capable
oi running the affairs of the municipality as il ought to be run. One
thine i- sun���we have had more than
enough of municipal administration
by real estate men. It is time the
municipality was run for the benefit
of those who have made their homes
here. We have also had more than
enough of administration by men ol
doubtful principle. The recent government enquiry into school board
and other municipal affair- produced
sufficient proof 'I' that. Then, in the
absence of good, capable men with
time at their disposal to devote to
municipal administration, where and
t,, whom are we to look for men in
whom tlie people can place implicit
confidence? To my mind, there is
only one answer���to the churches and
Citizen Browne���You surely do not
mean to suggest that the churches
should mix themselves up witli municipal politics?
Citizen Mackenzie���That is exactly
what I do sugge-t. And why not?
What do the churches stand lor if
not  for  thc welfare of the people?
Citizen Brown.���Oh, but, I don't
think you should mix religion ami politics.
Citizen Mackenzie���Why not* Are
not all our laws based on Ihe ten
commandments? I contend that ii
there was more religion in polities
there would he less graft and scandal
such as lias been exposed by the various commissions of enquiry held recently in different parts of Canada.
Why' should polities be so dirty that
the churches and clergy should not
associate with il? Politics vitally
affects the -veil-being of the nation,
and in my mind the pulpit should be
our strongest political platform. How
is it that the churches are for the most
part filled bv women, while men give
them a wide berth? For the simple
reason that they fail to deal with the
things which vitally affect the municipal and national hie of the country,
hence do not appeal to men.
Citizen Brown.���Then what do \ m
Suggcsl  should be done?
Citizen  Mackenzie���ll  seems lo me

especially the "very serious considerashun" pairt n' it. They're a serious Int.
The  trouble  is  the  folk  himNe  took

Noo that the questyin's richt afore

I'm quite share the results wud be

There's nae true doobts but that the
questyin o' prohibeeshun has got an
awfu incentive frae the happening o'
thc last year hack, an' in panicky
tinus such as we live in, there's jist
the danger that legislashun micht be
passed which wud he the means o' re-
tardin' instead o' helpin' tae improve
thc province.
Some eminent man has said���1 forget whae he wis, it maun bc Rabble,
or maybe Felix Penne���that the true
statesman displayed his ability, not in
the number of statutes he put on the
books, but in the number he kept off.
Along that line o' reasonin', Tin per-
feckly weel assured that while prohibeeshun micht he a very desirable
thing frae the pint o' view p' thc general welfare o' the province, yet it
michtnie. an' in the long run it wud

Hooever, there's naebody can deny
that there is a tremendous amount 6'
booze consumed richt here in B. C, an'
the probletn tae bc faced is hoo tae
eradicate tlie drunkard withoot in-

in  the literal sense p' the  term.
The profits derived frae it are turned intae a fund which is haundled by
a representative committee o' the community.
The wey this committee set aboot
tae fecht drink is tae provide places
for social recreation that'll tak the
place o' the booze-shop.
It's'practically on the same principle as that o' the company promoter
who a short time ago launched his
idea n' the cat ranch. He planned tae
mak it a self-supportin' scheme frae
the start an' I dinnie ken what wey
lie didnie go on wi' his plans. Briefly,
his. idea wis tae acquire a five-acre
tract an' acquire a few glide specimens
o' the various breeds o' cats���Kilkenny's. Manx's, Tortyshells, Black
cats, White cats, an' dear knows whn
mony ithcr kin's o' rats. Then he wis
gaun tae set aside an acre or so whaur
he wud breed a lot o' rats, which he
wud use for feedin' the cats. Certain
o' the cats he wis gaun tae rear for
their fur an' their dead carcases he wis
gaun tae feed back-tae the rats. It wis
a kin o' perpetual motion idea, the
cats wud eat the rats and the rats wud
eat the cats���and they wud baith profit thereby. There seemed tae be a'
kin's o' money in the idea, an' 1 wisnie

Yours through thc heather,
Upon entering into a consideration
of this great question, one is very
soon hr.iught face to face with the
tact that unemployment is a disease
of a very grave nature, threatening
the foundations of society as a whole.
Many and varied arc the opinions
advanced as to thc cause of unemployment, both by reform parties and
individuals. If Conservatives _ are in
power they are held responsible by
Liberals, and vice versa.
Some individuals, possessed with a
Malthusian mind, contend vthat the
world is over-populated, but they lack
the courage of their convictions to
demonstrate at least a partial remedy
by their immediate departure. Others,
that the state of affairs is due to overproduction and under consumption.
The theologian is cver_willing to hoist
the onus upon the shoulders of the
Divinity, and solemnly and piously
"���The poor shall cease out of the
land" (Dent. 15-11).
To these we vyould say in the words
of Dante:
Oh fond anxiety of mortal men,
Mow   vain   and   inconclusive   arguments are those
Which   make   thee   beat   thy   wings
Wc arc therefore obliged to strike
deeper to find the fundamental cause.
In-doing so we are forced to the conclusion that unemployment is inherent
in, and is the inevitable outcome of,
,our present ecenomic system, generally termed the "wage system."
It is itself the effect of an effete
system and ultimately becomes the
inexorable cause of the overthrow of
that system of which it is the inevitable result.
The first thing necessary for a worker, to secure the necessaries of life,
is to get access to the means of production, owned and controlled by the
employing class. This he can only do
by entering into an agreement with
an employer to exchange his labor
power (the mental and physical energy
applied in the process of production
and distribution) for its equivalent in
coin  or  in  kind, which is termed a
"wage" or "salary"; the difference
between a wage and salary being the
difference in the laundry bill.
A  wage can only ue. under tin- most
favorable circumstances, in excess of
ihe bare cost of existence of tin   wiii
her. and the reproduction of his kind
to   replace   hiin   when   of   no   furlln-r
The labor of a hitman being (or
labor power more eorrecilv expressed)
being a commodity, bought. Bold and
exchanged mi the labor market, itl
exchange value anil price'is determined by Iwo conditions, namely:���
ils cost of production and >uaf>ly and
All tilings being equal. <ir the lain i
market being in a state of equilibrium
(supply equalling demand) labor power will exchange at its natural price,
or cost of production. This "price" or
"wage" is merely Ihe actual amount
of food, clothing and shelter necessary to keep the worker in a fair state
of mental and physical efficiency. If
on the other hand, supply exceeds demand, or vice-versa, its price will fall
or rise accordingly.
Thus we see that the worker under
the wage system can only secure by
the sale of his labor-power as a commodity ils equivalent in money I tin-
price form of the commodity).
The value of his average daily wage
is determined by what the laborer requires so as to live, labor and generate. f
Our investigation so far has led ns
to the conclusion that the worker only
receives in exchange for his labor-
power approximately sufficient of the
necessaries of life (in money form)
so as to live, labor and generate. The
worker docs not cease producing immediately he has created the .exchange
���-alue of his labor-power: he continues
till the end of the working day agreed
upon, which for convenience and simplicity we will assume to be an average of ten hours.
If the worker received the, full product of his labor, which equals ten
hours expenditure of energy, he would
create products and not commodities.
As thc capitalist can only exist upon
the unpaid portion of the workinp* day
after the worker has reproduced his
cost of subsistence or wage, or in
other words, the surplus value extracted from the worker through the
ownership of the means of production
held by thc capitalist, he, thc capitalist, would naturally cease to exist as
such, which is not a very desirable
thing to the capitalist.
In the United Slates (like Canada)
where liberty of exploitation prevails
to.as great an extent as anywhere, the
average annual production per worker
equals $2,(MX), while the average annual wage equals $50(1, or one-fourth,
which gives tin worker a purchasing
power equal to that amount.
Since the workers purchasing power i- only equal to one-fourth of his
total production, it is quite evident he
can oiilv buy back one-fourth, or $500
worth of commodities, and with an allowance of one-fourth for tin- maintenance of non-producers, we still have
a lurplui equal to one-half of the total
The effective demand of the "home
market" at all times being equal to
iln- purchasing power of the workers,
the surplus must be disposed off in
the "foreign market" (the economic
cause of all  wars).    Since our present
economic system is practically worldwide, the foreign market is becoming
more and more a ueglible quantity:
the result being that the surplus commodities continue to accumulate, with
the consequent result that the stores.
warehouses, etc.. become over-stocked with unsaleable commodities; the
wheels of industry cease to turn, men,
women and children become unemployed. Thus we are brought face to
face with an industrial crisis (generally
tinned a financial depression to mislead ihe people) and starvation in the
midst of plenty, a condition never
known in the early history of man;
truly, the tragedy of modern industrialism.
Mr. Wage-earner, perhaps you have
turned over a few pages of history
and either pitied or despised the chattel slave because of his position, which
only'gave him his "keep" in return for
his labor, and perhaps you have turned over a few more pages and pitied
or despised the serf because he too
only received his "keep;" but, Mr.
Wage-earner, did you ever think that
we, with our boasted superiority, get
less each year of the things necessary
for our "keep." We, in fact, only receive about $500 per annum, when it
requires $768 to keep an average family in a state of working efficiency
equal lo that of a horse.
Perhaps you have been satisfied
wilh wdiat thc politician has told you
was the true cause of unemployment.
It is now necessary that you become
a man and do your OWN THINKING, and in thinking twice, lose your
admiration for a system which robs
you of all that would make life a
\ eritable paradise and gives you instead, all the realities of a Dante's
Life would never have had its problem had Ihe workers Bettl its thinkers,

Do You Want Bigger  Poultry Profits?
A few years ago poultry raising was a comparatively easy matter.
But today it is different. With the cost of feed going up���with competition growing keener and keener���with the rapidly increasing number
of truly scientific poultry raisers���the man' who now raises poultry at
a profit simply MUST learn the business from the bottom up.
He must know how to feed and breed for eggs���how to get the
most rapid growth for market���how to most successfully breed for
show purposes. He must know the short cuts to success. He must
study the experience of others.
The poultry raising course of the International Correspondence
Schools comprises 24 practical lessons for home study. It represents
the experience of the most successful poultry raisers in the world as
well as our own wide experience on the Rancocas Farm at Brown's
Mills, N. J.���thc world's largest poultry farm.

hesitated; to call meant the pain a-

wore a short skirt that seemed to be
in shreds; he gray flannel shirt had
a great rent in one sleeve; she was
hatless, and her hair bung in disorder
to her waist. The man glanced at her
hobnailed, high-laced boots and read
a story of bitter travel through thc forest.

She approached slowly, half afraid,

An extraordinary story is told in
tile "Scotsman" of an heroic deed performed hy a soldier of tin- 5th battalion of the Royal Scots. Ile is a well-
known footballer and his name is
Lance-Corp. Angus. The officer he
rescued is Lieut. Martin, of Carluke.
The story is thus told by one who
sav.  it "somewhere in France";
"With the dawn consciousness and
memory began to return; a wounded
soldier strove feebly to raise his head
and learn what fate had overtaken
him. As a matter of fact, his case
, seemed hopeless. Late last night he
had been leading a handful of men in
a daring attempt to raid a German
trench. A tidy little scrap followed
and bombs were thrown���quite a few
���and rifle fire broke out all along
thc lines. One or two of ours came
back with wounds and reported that
things were going on all right, when,
sudden as lightning, a heavy German
mine was fired either intentionally
r.r accidentally just where the raiding party was holly engaged, and
holh sides seemed to agree that it
was time to stop.
The Missing Leader
"And when the men came in
arose which, with each arrival deepened into certainty. Their leader had
not relumed. Lieut. M���, the bright-
eyed, clean, cheery boy we had all
learned in thc last eight months at
the front to love for his constant
bonhomie and to honor for many a
plucky act, is not accounted for. 'Are
all the rest in?'   'Ves, sir.'
" 'Anyone seen Mr.  ?' No answer. Perhaps you folks at home
don't know what news like that
means In the officers and men of a
territorial battalion who have shared
hardships together, through a long
campaign, whose home ties are now
linked into chains nf iron forged in
fire and blood. But you .will believe
that all the black night long faithful
meu risked their lives over the parapet and searched and crawled and
searched again���in vain.
What the Sentry Saw
"Now  the  last thing    that     M	
could remember was the explosion of
the mine, lifting him upward with itn
awful force. The next moment, as it
seemed', he found himself lying his
body more than half buried in tlie
soft earth, already reddened with his
blood, somewhere in France. An hour
passed and weakly and wearily he
brushed the earth away, a handful
at a time.
"ft was this feeble movement that
first caught a sentry's eye, and in a
few moments wc all knew what had
happened. There he,lay, right at tlie
foot of the German parapet, only
some ten feet of earth between him
nnd the most pitiless enemy that ever
waged an unworthy war. Mis very
closeness to fliem hid him from their
view, but already they must have
heard his moans, and knew he was
there, for the ugly neck of a periscope  with   its  ghoulish  eye.   reached
over their trench and leered at the
poor wounded soldier below. Slowly
and horribly it turned and swayed
and leered at us, too, and then back
at him. Hell itself can produce nothing to match the dreadfuluess of
that horrid periscope. And though.
for fear we might only bring the end
wc hardly dared fire all day at that
place, yet 1 tell you that   periscope was smashed by a well-aimed
British bullet, and every one that
took its place, shared its fate.
"In agony pom-  M appealed to
the enemy for a drink of water, and
what do you think those unspeakable
cowards did? They threw him an un-
lighted bomb. Can brutal inhumanity
go farther? Surely not. And we, too
understood their game; wc have been
fighting them too long to expect to
sec them throw over a rope and draw
him in, Wc did not even expect them
to be merciful and kill him. No; they
left him there in the cruel glare of a
cloudless June sky���a bait to lure yet
another Scottish soldier to his death.
Rescue Hopeless
"And we���well, we watched him.
And slowly there rose beside him a
llumiish loophole���a steel plate fenced in by many sandbags to shield the
fiends who would shoot if rescue were
tried. A rescue by day now seemed
hopeless, but to a man D company
volunteered to rush thc German
trench at dusk, cost what it might.
"Let me describe the position more
fully. The Germans were on a bare,
dry knoll some 70 yards from us.
Their trench had a high, irregular
parapet on which M  now lay perfectly still. It was obvious that for
more than half the distance between
the trenches cvery square inch was
commanded by their rifles; that was
no shelter whatever either from the
fire or their view. In front of outlines for thirty yards or so there
grew the self-sown corn of last
year's harvest, rank with weeds, and
affording good cover. Our trench
had been sighted along the hollow,
and by this time it was manned by
only our best riflemen. On a ridge
behind and perhaps six feet higher, a
machine gun had been mounted,
while at various points of vantage
the officers had gathered to watch
the deadly loophole over their friend.
"It was now midday and thc strain
became too,much to endure. Out of
so many brave and .willing men one
was chosen���a man born and bred in
the  same  Scottish  village  which  was
M 's home.    You will    hear    this
hero's real name soon, if you had not
heard it already. T wull call him Atkins, meanwhile���the name will do.
He knew well what lay before him.
and was well warned, but not afraid.
An officer of the Canadian contingent who was visiting us in that
trench, for whose helpful advice we
can never be too grateful, spoke to
him kindly. "Now. my boy.' he said,
'you  are  gning to 'certain death..'    Ml
does   not   matter   much,   sir,   whether
sooner or later.'
He Crawled Forward
I     "At   1   o'clock  in  the afternoon  Atkins leaped  over our parapet on  his
! forlorn hope.    Clinging to the ground
ml   using     every     precaution      that
training and skill have given    to    the
soldier,  he  crawled  forward    on    bis
task.     It   all   seemed   hopeless   to   escape notice in full view of both sides,
and yet he made steady progress and
nothing  happened.      Minutes  passed;
they   seemed   like   hours;     the     space
diminished more and more quickly���
at last  he  reached  the  German  parapet,   and     still     the     enemy     waited
! (hoping,  perhaps,    for    yet    another
I victim).    Quickly,  cooly  Atkins    did
his   work.     lie   touched   the   lieutcn-
I ant's arm, whispered in his ear,  rais-
I ed him up a little and placed a  flask
I of brandy beneath his teeth.    Together they sat up and waited for a matter of two or three seconds to gather
strength  for  the  ordeal  before  them.
"At this very moment the Germans
lobbed a bomb just over the parapet
with an explosion, raising a storm of
dust.   Now or never it must be. Han 1
in  hand  the. wounded officer and his
man  rise  to  their   feet,    the    strong
man   guiding  the   weak   as    best     he
can.    And then    the  Germans    made
their  mistake.      So  sure    had     they
been   of   their   prey,     their     cunning
overreached itself.    The swiftest  runner   in   thc   world   would   have     one
ihance   in   a   thousand     nf     crossing
that open  space if only their  snipers
shot   steady.     Instead     they     threw j
more bombs and up  rises a pillar of1
smoke, twenty, thirty, forty feet high,
hiding   the   whole   of  what  was   happening both    from    themselves    and
from us.
The Germans' Mistake
"Out into our view there staggered
two poor wounded creatures stumbling, running, falling, crawling. Down
they go, then up again, and on. The
German rifles shot wildly; still on
they go and our line of fire is clear.
Our rifles now; one blast from the
machine gun, and it is all over; they
arc safely in our lines and once
again a stout heart and a cool head
have enabled a brave,/good man to
achieve what seemed impossible.
"M  has  three  wounds.    Atkins
has  forty,  but  thc  doctor  says    that
both will live and fight again if need
"That is the story plainly set down
by one who witnessed it all barely a
week ago in one small corner of the
great battlefront in France. Brave
deeds cannot bc too widely known or
too highly honored. We may sec such
deeds again, for British hearts are
I true; but we shall never see any that
are braver than this one that we have

I believe that physical culture is a

T believe that through physical culture, mental culture follows easily and

I believe that through physical culture Ihc frictions of life can be reduced to a minimum and the pleasures of life increased to their maximum.
T believe that normal and well-

She laughed and ran briskly down
lo the lake, filling the big pail and
bringing fresh water to him. Then,
without a word, she gathered sticks
and leaves, started a fire, and began
to   net   breakfast.     Hi-   eyes   watched
her approvingly.
"You'll be a guide some day," he
laughed.    "You're picking up fast."
That pleated her���she smiled brightly at him as she looked up from her
task. "The city isn't everything." she
answered.    "I  used to think  so."
"Well, you see you've been caught
young enough. You're saved," he
But they fell silent during the meal,
as if each other read the other's
thoughts. Lloyd hated to send the
girl, hut there was no other way; it
seemed brutal to leave a helpless man,
yet she knew he was right.
He made her repct her directions, i
and she went over them without a
slip. Then he had her prepare two
meals for herself, to be taken in the
canoe. She filled the water pails and
set them beside him. gave him new
bandages for his leg. and then, at his
direction, dragged all of thc camp belongings within his reach. When
there was nothing more to do, she
still lingered.
"Time lo start. Margaret." he admonished, "Now, listen: don't paddle
loo hard. Take it easy, because you've
got quite a road. Keep your eye on
the map; remember that you're moving south all the time. Don't get rattled. It's a straight course, but if
yntt should get puzzled at any time,
over slowly. Ynu'll bc at Joe Station
stop right where you are and think it
before dark; don't fret about that."
It isn't aboul me I'm fretting,"
she said slowly. "It's you."
"Oh, I'm fine," he said, smiling.
Why, Jim McLean is likely to find
me turning handsprings when he gets
here. The mcn'll come through tonight. They won't lose any time.
And if you're lucky about trains, you'll
be back in your own camp tonight.
Now go, sister."
She held both his hands for a minute and tried to force back the tears
that threatened

"Good-by, Margaret."
He watched her wistfully as she
pushed thc canoe into the water.
"Take both paddles." he called.
"And put a stone in the bow. Otherwise she'll be ton high in thc head,

She took n last look around and

he admitted���after she began to understand about things. "Poor kid!"
he said aloud, as he thought of her
night alone in the forest.
When the sun had passed the ridge
opposite his camp and begun to sink
among the pines, he wondered if she
was at Joe Station. Darkness came
slowly, and Lloyd watched the stars
| appear, Now she must be on her way
to the railroad, he thought, and the
men were coming for him. She
would probably bc in her own camp
by midnight.
And then in a flash he realized that
he did not even know whn she was!
Just Margaret! Just a chance comrade of the woods, slopping for a
while by his camp-fire and then journeying onward. A farewell wave of
the paddle and she had gone. He understood at last why the woods were
Well, he would stay awake unlil
the men came, anyhow. He smoked
steadily, watching the coal in his pipe
glow and fade. There was no fire
tonight. Finally he became drowsy.
At last he slept.
A light flashed in his eyes roused
him with a start.
"It's Tack Burns." called a familiar
voice.    "Are y'all   right?"
"Grid bless her! She gnt there!"
exclaimed Llnyd. Then he fell back
with a groan, for he had forgotten
the leg.
"Got   there   before   sundown.     It's
onlv about  ten  now,"  said  the  guide,
setting down his lantern.    "How's the

Burns. "Never saw a girl so bent

"Did   she   get   word   to  her   camo?"
"Not   tonight.     'Phone's   busted."
"But   she   could     have     caught     a

sent through from the station. Didn't
seem to care much when it went out.
But she did hustle us."
"You shouldn't have let her come."
said Lloyd weakly.   "Why. Tack, she's-
just   been   through   an   awful   experience."
"That's funny, now.    She neyer said
vthing  about   that.     Tttst   said  she'd

a  "irl a-k  so many questions'."
Thcv heard  the  grating of a  cannc
against the shore, and the guide went
down with the lantern tn meet it.    A
moment later Llnyd  saw the tattered
skirl   flash past  the light and she was
kneeling at  his side.
"All right?" she whispered. '
"Yes; but  why  did  ynti  come?"  he
said,  protestingly,  as  he  groped   for
her hand and found it.
"Why?    Because T chose to."'
"But T thought���-T told you "
"Billy, be quiet! We're to start
back a' daylight, There'll be a doctor
at the station."
"But vou shouldn't have come,
child.    Tt was too much."
She leaned closer to him and stroked
his forehead. "Hush! Did you think-
that I wouldn't see vou through?
Why, Billy!"

"You'll forget that word tomorrow,"
said Lloyd. "And that reminds me

Crawl into the tent, for T shall get
you out early, I promise you."
The girl demurred, but Lloyd shook
'lis head.
"The tent for you." he said. "I'll
bc right here alongside of it. Besides.
T don't want to move unless T have lo.
I'll bc plenty warm. You're dog-
tired, Margaret.    Turn in."
She brought fresh water to him, wet
thc bandages, and made him promise
to summon her if he needed anything.
A few minutes she called softly from
the tent:
"I'm going to learn to be brave in
the woods."
"Good   night,   little   girl."   he     answered.    "And thank yon."
"Gond  night.   Billy."
He  slept  after awhile,  and  thc  fire
died  down  to  glowing coals.  Tt was
daylight   when   Lloyd   glanced   at   his
watch.     He  hated  to  wake   her,  but
she   had   much   ahead   of   her   before
sundown,   and   time   counted.     Three
times  he  called  before   she   answered.
"Did   you   sleep   at   all?"   she   asked
anxiously,   kneeling   at   his   side   and
touching   his   forehead   softly   to   see
if the fever had left him,
"Actually, T slept well," he answered.   "And I know you did."
