don't think there will he a regret at
leaving this ship and her insutlicient
and unpalatable food for camp life
Sunday morning, March 7,—Exactly
three weeks since we left Victoria and
we are in slight of our destination ut
last. The first thing I saw when I
went on deck at daylight was tho
shore of England. Turning to the opposite side of the ship I saw it again
and I knew we must he in the Bristol
channel which at this point is only
about six m.les wide. We were surrounded by a small fleet of light war
vessels patrolling the channel in all
directions, while    a     number of iner-
of the ollicers picked up a piece of
paper upon which was written some
German words. After calling in a
Belgian who used to work with me
in the Pioneers, to assist, they found
thut while the words were translatable their sense was not and probab-
wejly never will be. We have just stopped to pick up a pilot and are now
hiking it up for port. The water here

Avonmout.li, .' p. m., Sunday. We
arrived here at Id o'dlock and iby
noqn were tied up to the railway
dock. Thc first familiar sight I discovered was the Canadian Northern
railway docks where the steamships
of that line make their English headquarters. This is not a large town
but apparently does an enormous
.shipping business. The harbour is
simi'.y  tilled with boats of all  nation
chantmen were also visible. The lirst jalities among which ure an English

are supposed to leave town at 4
o'clock, while we hope to get away
about six. This will make it bud for
the ones including myself who are
anxious to see the country through
which we pass for thc flrst time, but
it cannot be helped. It has just
started to rain, 1 suppose it would
be called a mist in Scotland, but it
would wet a person if he stayed out
in it too long. However it would take
more than a rain storm,to keep us
indoors thi wav we feel now and I
don't think there will be much hesitation about landing when they let us.
There are a couple of ships here loaded with army horses from New Orleans. Thc American boats are the
only ones I have seen besides those
of the allies who apparently scorn to
pay any attention to the Kaiser's request that they disfigure their sides
with large letters indicating their
neutrality. This pait of the country
is very similar to southern Ireland! in
appearance except that it'is much
lower in places while the roads are
apparently much wider, more-straight
and better kept. It being Sunday
there are very few people around 1
guess they are in church.
Monday, 9 a.m.—After dinner yesterday 1 managed to get past the
sentry at the gangway and it didn't
take mc any longer than 1 could help
to get away from the vicinity ot the
boat. As I knew we were not to entrain until six o'clock I had all the
afternoon ahead of me and proceeded
to see the town and surrounding
country. After doing the town walking the middle of the street which is
quite the fashion here and meeting
many townspeople of all ages some
of whom had never seen a Canadian
soldier before, I walked out 'into the
country. One of the first objects to
catch my eye was a field full of long
galvanized iron buildings which upon
closer Inspection proved to be military horse stables. Curious to know
what sort of horses the government
was buying I entered what appeared
to be the main building where I
found the head groom. He informed
me that th'is was simply the horse
hospital where they took care of all
the horses injured in transit from
America. There were about (170 ol
these poor animals on hand. Many of
which were in a pitiable shape. There
were also a large number of California mules in the same condition. I
happened to mention that I cntne.
from Canada, when the groom turn
ed questioner nnd asked, "Uo you
know Freddy Reid? He ia out there."
1 said I came from Vjctoria, he said
"I think he was in Victoria." Well, 1
replied, I know several Reids ln Victoria, Init no Freddy. He called over
to another fellow and asked biai
where Freddy wus when he wrote and
the iellow said Saskatchewan. 1 said,
"I have been in Saskatchewan too
but I don't remember Freddy."
Whereupon the second man re-Iterated, "oh yes," he is in Saskatchewan,
He is stationed at Winnipeg." I was
then forced to admit that Freddy
was not on my list. After se\cral
more experiences of this kind 1 land-
id back at the docks and was just
passing through the gate when a fellow tapped me on the shoulder, "Rx-
cusc me, sir, but are you from Canada''" I pleaded guilty, so he turned
to a rather pretty young lady and
■jftid perhaps he knows John. She
asked "Do you know Sergeant Jones
of C. Company in the :12nd?" They
won't let me on the docks to see my
husband and he wired that he was
on th" Vaderland." I volunteered to
find hubby, but found that the whole
bunch had entrained immediately the
boat docked. So I returned and Informed her that it wasn't Jones fault
thnt he didn't turn up. she snid,
"Thank you vcry much," and ns I
turned nwny she added, rerhaps you
wouldn't mind taking him a kiss

badges. At uny rate 1 did it and um
now looking forward to seeing Sergeant Jones. If he isn't in the same
class with his wife, I will probably
forget part of the message. I landed
back on the boat. too. late for supper,
but managed to ring in on on the second table for a fairly good feed.
Arriving on deck I found some of the
boys worrying over my absence, but
the boss didn't seem to be letting it
interfere with the colour of his hair
They had put my kit. bags on the
train and when I offered ,the one who
played porter, tuppence he . nearly
beat my head ofl. We left Avon-
mouth at 6.15 p.m. after all the
pretty girls in sight had kissed as
many Canadian soldiers as they
could get around to.
It would be impossible for me to
describe the scenery through which
we passed, until it became too dark
to see, nor the many large towns
which we crossed ou our way. Wc
made only two stops In 200 miles,
one to pick up some lunches for the
ollicers and one to change engines
when we struck another railway line.
When we arrived at Reading which is
about an hours run from London we
were cautioned to pull down the
blinds on account of aeroplanes.
There were seven of us in a compant-
ment which usually seats ten, but
our equipment made it comfortably
crowded. During the first part of the
journey four of us enjoyed a game of
whist with a Missanatin towel safety
pinned to four knees for a talfle. My
deal came first and when I declared it
a miss deal (I only had one trump in
my hand) and was silly enough to
give it away afterwards they threw
me out of the game and nearly out
of the door at the same time. Of
course the door was locked which
fact saved my life, for at the time we
were going about 00 miles an hour.
The engine on our train was named
Ronald and no one will ever be able
to convince me that Ronald was anything but faBt. As we neared London
we were struck with the abBence ot
street lights and had it not been for
thc house lights we would have passed through sonic of tho largest
cities in England besides the largest
city in the world without knowing
anything about it.. As it was Sunday night we had a monopoly of the
noise and I assure you most ol the
people in the foggy city |1 won't suy

We travelled through London at
about 25 miles an hour which they
consider a safe speed aud even thcu
tt took us nearly three quarters ol
an hour to find anything tbat looked
like a country field again. Vie found
ourselves at Shornclifle, our new ho&no
a little after midnight and when we
fell out and fell in on the platform
w'ith our great routs rolled wc found
ourselves ln the midst of a snow
storm, the first we had seen this
winter although we crossed Canada,
the Atlantic and Kngland on our
trip. It didn't take long to get our
coats unrolled and ou and we struck
out over n nice macadamized road
for the barracks about n mile and u
half distant, guided by one of the
local otlicers. Wo hnd a rather fast
march over a winding road and into
our new quarters which we were delighted to Bnd are much of an improvement on anything we have as
yct seen. This Is one of the oldest
garrison towns In Kngland being
situated on its most dangerous coast
and at present has fifteen thousand
troops in camp. The joint population ot Shornclifle mid Folkstoiie
(which adjoin oue another) is nearly
50,000, bo wc shall not uecd to go 4ti

Sunday .Service In .North Sen These
Days Is an Impressive Affair.
On the North Sea u cruiser Is strlii-
ped for action—the guns loaded, torpedoes fitted und trained, range Anders at work measuring off the varying
distances of sighted vessels; a word,
a touch, and that mighty fabric of
potentiality will Bame as If the mouth
of hell had opened aud vomited Its
Meanwhile, the foremast files the
peaceful flag of Divine service, with
Its white cross, the symbol of supreme self-sacrifice and courage. Nod
many hours ago, from that %|mo
iniiHi, was signalled messages fraught
with battle and destruction, which
opened the Book of Life and Death
with an orchestra of lyddite shell
and shrieking Bhrapnel.
The crulBer's decks are swept ol
everything which ls not a weapon of
some Instrument auxiliary to death.
No bulwark or rail; the ship ls stripped, and ln her naked strength-
three hundred and odd feet of shod
We are on the ground where over
a hundred years ago Nelson kept his
ceaseless watch on the North Sea,
The men*hurry up out of all kind!
of unsuspected places, mustering beneath the once-burnished, now dull,
muzzles of iron-throated monsters.
An oflicer sniffs the wind, consults
with another, and decides to hold the
service 'tween decks. The chaplain
already robed, ls In the captain's
cabin settling the final details of the
order of service.
The master-at-arms appears and
reportB everyone aft. The choir, augmented by a small string band, ls
grouped round the wind-jam, a harmonium, with a slight cold due to
exposure. Between decks the wholes
ship's company is mustered, men are
wedged Into all kinds of uncomfortable places, chairs are placed for tho
The chaplain appears, accompanied by the captain. The latter seats
himself facing the ship's company,
the chaplain steps to the Improvised
prayer-desk and gives out a hymn.
It might have been an order to open
fire so Quick is the response, as from
luBty lungs there rolls out the soldiers' and sailors' favorite, "Fight
the Good Fight."
The service is a shortened form of
evensong with the special prayers
used dally in His Ma^sty's navy, to
be found in any grayer book.
The men's voices are uplifted in
the response, augumented this tlmo
by a chorus of seagulls. With the
first hymn they started a shrill series
of cries, but now they have got Into
their stride. There 1b the ground
bass of the distant waters, the whispering swish of the caressing waves
blending with the volees of some hundreds of men, but softly dominant la
the song of the sea. Truly there
were visualized and actualized the
opening words of tho Benedlctus, "O
all ye works of the Lord, bless ye
the Lord, praise Him and magnify
Him forever." And around us and
upholding us the moving mystery of
the Bea, fit symbol of God and His
protecting arms.
The captain — a fine figure, alert,
with a penetrating eye and clear-ous
features—reads the lesson reverently, and tbe faces of the ship's company turn to him. The men listen
with keen interest in a story which
tells of a nation's struwles and desperate defence.
In thoBP faces one reads tho tale of
what is known In the navy as "a
happy ahip."
The chaplain gives a short address
on St. Michael, warrior, archangel,
champion of the chivalry of heaven.
One more hymn then the blessing.
A 'lostroyer looms up out of the
creeping mists of evening, slows
down, listens for a few minutes, exchanges signals, and then Is off again
to continue that watch which Is tra.
cousin to praypr.

The alx.vR mentioned sources

Thcso "possibles" have bean

not altogether possible on the

the great possibilities* of increased production. By greater
care In the selection of seed,
more thorough cultivation, fertilization, better drsinsge, the
average could be raised by at
least one-third. That in Itself
would add at le*st.*160,000#>0

Live Stock
Breeding stock ar* to-day Canada'* most valuable asset. The one
outstanding feature of the world's fanning ia that there will soon be
■ great shortage of meat supplies. Serve yovr .breeding stock. Plan
to increase vour Uve stock. Euros* and the United States, as well as
Canada, will pay higher price* for beef, mutton, and bacon in the very

Tbe value of placer gold recovered
from British Columbia mining fields
during last year is valued in the animal mineral report of the provincial
mineralogist, W. Fleet Hobertson, at
J5J4,0uil. Of this all but one-twentieth
was ta en from the Cariboo and
Casslar districts. Tbe silver produced In the province was 3,395,000
ounces, being 71,CO!) less than the
year before. Mr. Robertson's report
Shows th it the actual mineral return
is less thun for 1913 or 11112, ls the
same as that of 1910, and is above
the average for the last 10 .vears.
Mining iast year was carried on under unprecedented conditions. Dur.ng
1911 lode-mimed gold was produced to
the value- of $5,101,12(1, which is Icsb
than the two previous years, but
should be increased when conditions
are again normal. The silver output
is greater than any year since 1905.
The copper production of the province for 1914 was 41,90,461 pounds,
worth nearly $,",,009,000. The zinc production of 7,029,276 pounds was a
record over the past five years.
Among other minerals mentioned in
the report are iron, placer platinum,
molebdenite, and petroleum. These
are  mainly at the prospecting stage.
