FBRNIB, U. 0., Aug. 8—Owing to
the misinterpretation ol the recent
despatch e.T.e.iat n Irom uttuwa,
quoting an announcement trade by
the Italian consul gen ral for Canada
that Ottawa Italian reservists were
not yet required to answer the mobilization call to mean all Canadian
resident Italian reservists* the local
Italian consula agent, 0. Dicastro,
desires to correct this impression as
the latest orders affecting this district, which ixtaiils from Kamloops
on the west -rn iM- A.) erta boundary
cn the east, are very specific, requiring all reservists residing therein to
report to the Fernie agency hefore
Aug. 19, when they will entrain here
via Montreal for New York ami then
by steamship to destination, for
which transportatii n and all arrangements have leen made by the
Italian government. The order includes all officers and orivates of all
generalities and categories, as well
as the "Renitenti," 1915 and previous
Classes who have not served customary military training. While Aug. 19
is tli»     date set for their il parture,
the final date 1 efor	
respond to the mobilization call is
Am;. 81, after which date those failing to comply will 1-e classed ns deserters am! subject to from 3 to 5
yc-nrs penal servitude should they
return to Italy, also to deprivation
of all civil rights, protection of their
government and expulsion from all
Italian  fraternal societies.

Nineteen miners were trapped in
one of the entrances of Moderwcll
Mine No. 1 at Christopher, 111., by
an eijilosion of gas. It is believed,
all have perished. SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 1915
That t'. P. BroWn, formerly employed by LM B. Hume & Co., and
reported missing, is now a prisoner
ol thc Germans, is among the news
of Revelstoke boys contained in the
following interesting letter from
Hart Munro:
Belgium,   July   15,   1915.
Dear sister :
1 had tie t figured on writing nny
letters until we returned to billets,
tein as we, (the machine gun section)
have not leen in the front line for
eleven days and the latest report is
to the effect that we are to have six
weeks of it, I must get busy or my
rorrespondence will get too tar behind.   We have so far had the must
interesting trip to the firing line
which we have as yet enjoyed and although only a few yards [rom Fritz
our trenches are so well constructed
that if anybody nets hit it is either
I is own fault or when he is engaged
in pat.r,el w rk between the lines or
on some other equally dangerous
task. There seems to he a tendency
among the men to forget the danger
especially when n few hours elapse
and no bullets or shells are making
music In out near vicinity, and sometimes a fellow will go so far as to
climb up out of the trench or do
something eiually fccl'sh. Then
Fritz gets in his w..rk and although
as a rule their marksmanship is no-
thing to he proud of, they bave a
lew dead shots armed with a new rc-
peatlng automatic rifle wi h teles-
cope sights and these occasionally
get a man even at very long distances. One of our fellows in tno reserve line yesterday was drawing the
tre from one of these fellows- and
every Mullet which came close he
would get up and signal a miss to
Fritz. Finally tie was shot, through
the lungs and lived only three minutes to realize bis foolishness. T
bave a charcoal burner in size and
shape like a three gallon water pnil
with holes bored in the bottom and
.'ide for air and when I get a smoke
up cookim: dinner about thirty yards
*u the rear of the tiring line they Invariably tike a few shots nt the
smoke hoping to include the cook i in
the hag. Our officers, who seem to
it- ,H- some eif my c okins, apparently d,"'' led that it wouldn't do to lose
the cook so they had a working party uj> and built, a barricade of sand
I ige around my open air kitchen, so
1 ear. wlnle frying the bacon or steak
listen tr German bullets singin? putt
only a f >ot over my hend, and yct
with perfect snfetv. On our way in
'his trip when approaching a small
house occupied hy civilians and located about a mile tin the rear of the
firing line a sudden puff of smoke
was seen issuing from jthc kitchen
chimney, a couple of minutes afterwards a German coal box dropped in
the middle of the roud, killing two
men and two h'>rses of thc machine;
run section twenty-five yardB behind
0UT8. The supposedly patriotic Belgians were immediately arrested an.l
sun te. headquarters "here I sincerely hope they were shot. That night
one of our officers went out in front
ef our trench to take a look at a
■: achine gun position wc were building te. see how it appeared from a
German point of view. A sniper hidden in the tall '.-rass shot him and he
.nly lived four boms. Thc riext dt>y
• .nc of our large biplanes tlew over
our heads at a height of about 4','M)
feet and after passing safely over
three German anti aircraft batteries
endeavored t I engage an enemy plane
m battle. You should have seen the
Taube shooting down ro safety. Our
aviator then circled around for a
(ouj)le e.f hours over tbe enemy's tren-
i-lies and we figured they expended
two thousand dollars worth of ammunition on him in thnt time without ••niching him. although some of
their shrapnel broke very close to
bim. Bullets were literally raining
down from the sky all around us and
■is I was out. in thc field after water
when it happened I took refuge from
the storm under a tree. Some of the
bullets cut small branches otT the
tree and I picked up the head of one
of the shells afterward which according to the reading on the fuse had
travelled six miles through the air
and was still ijuite hot. Tbat evening  son f OUT fellows observed     a
couple of carrier pigeons flying
across fr'im the German side into our
territory nnd on the following day
they were ibserved at exactly the
lime time so we came to the Conclusion that we were on the track
of sides. Our ollicer, the senior ser-
■,-eant   and  myself  having  secured   the
permission of the commanding officer
and the general formed ourselves into a spy hunting and pigeon trailing committee nnd during the next,
t-vi- days we trailed Ihe birds for a
distance of six  miles.    We were    then
retnforced i.y the   Intelligence   officer
ind eight neoutl end the re-nernl ordered a Shotgun fur ine to shoot the
birds with after we bad discovered
their      borne.    It   was  most   MCOlting
work as this part of the country is
infested with spies and one place iu
some woods which we had to go
through wus named 'spy corner,' owing to the number of our officers who
had been shot there while travelling
alone at night. One day I was in
charge of four of the scouts whom
1 had placed along a certain road to
keep a lookout for the birds and
when I came along to round up the
bunch in the evening I found a sergeant major, a sergeant and four privates of a British regiment engaged
in hunting one of my crew in a
Wheat field. Every few minutes he
would pop his head up and ofl they
would go with their rifles at tin'
ready, Finally just as I came up
they surrounded and captured him,
anil they naturally felt very s .r"
when I came along and claimed him,
as no doubt they were all figuring
on a D.O.M. I thought at the time
t.iat. it was lucky for him that it
was a bunch of English tommies who
■.'.ere on his trail instead of some of
the Canadians who would probably
have shot him first and investigated
afterward. Further down the line I
round that another of the four had
also been arrested and it required the
services of several officers to obtain
his release. After all the fun, excitement, danger and bard work involved in the five day hunt it was disappointing to receive orders that tbe
pigeons were to be let alone as they
belonged not to Fritz but to one of
our allies. Now we sit and watch
them fly back and forth and w,sh
them luck. These Germans are nervy
.'.'•wis w.thiiut any mistake. The other night one of them crawled through
the grass and threw a piece of gas
pipe about a toot long into our
trench. Upon examination it proved
to he not a bomb as at first sus-
Hct d, but a message case containing a piece of paper on which was
written in English "We have you
pretty well whacked now, when nre
you going to surrender." They ap-
parently had not heard about Southwest Africa, so one of o.ir officers
wrote them an answer intimating
that the only people who were doing
any surrendering these days were the
Germans, and a few mure pointel
truths. The weather has been hot
for the past week but cloudy part of
the time, which helped some. Night
before last it rained all night and
as a result the trenches were mud
and water half way to the knees,
while many of the dugouts were no
'utter. I am lucky enough to have a
good dugout all to myself. It is five
feet wide, eight long and the roof of
corrugated iron covered with two
tiers of sand hags, is over two feet
above the floor which is covered with
one inch boards. A good many fellows bave no'hing between them and
the mud but their rubber sheets f.nd
that makes it most disagreeable in
wet  weather.
The battalion goes into reserve
trenches every four days and then
lack here again for more. I thinl.
that most of them would prtfir :ue
front line as there is always a chance
to see something here and there is
uot the same danger from shell fire.
Between washing the breakfast disn-
es aud cooking dinner the other day,
I walked about a mile to the left
where the 7th battalion were holding
d iwn a front line and had a long
talk to Leo McKinnon and Harold
Burgess. They are in their element
on this job and like a lot more of
the fellows do not want to go back
until we huve had another go . at
them preferably with the enemy or
the offensive as we already know how
it feel9 to he in a charge. The i isi-
'ti'iiis   we  hold  now,   with  somet-rr.aU
•    tions, were taken by the British
regulars last November and as they
..re n.mil itronger than anytl
the kind I have ever seer there is no
object in making an advance into positions which would be infinitely more
difficult to hold. If our artillery can
inly tense the Germans enough to
bring them our way we shall all get
a crack at them.
It is simply awful tbe damage that
has been and is being done to prop-
<rty in this country. Somehow one
forgets the countless graveyards
which occupy c irners of orchard- and
whentfields in looking at the churches, chateau?, towns and villages,
which are nothing but a mass of
ruins, We are at present on the eelge
of a large ften mentioned    in

Germans then had their opportunity

they were more powerful in munitions

was near when the vallies would meet

Kitchener to be like the language of
the Hebrew prophet. Coining nearer-
home, he believed that Borden, thc]
Cana<dian premier, had beeu at this!
critical juncture raised up of God as
bad been the president of the United
States. In all this he saw the hand
of God. He was not despondent. Hii,
eyes were wide open, he was not fool-
id, not blinded, but in face of the
present situation he never felt more
surely the hand of God in the nation's affairs, and in the affairs of
the world. In the time of the Assyrian's blasphemy the mighty God
made bare his arm and the Jews
were brought through, so now, with
truth and honor and humanity nnd
religion and home at stake the arm
of God will be made bare. The per-
petuation of the same truth and the
vindication of the same right will he

It was n tune for thought and prayer. Every British heart tonight beat
