It will mean much to Revelstoke;
and to Mr. R. p. Green, to whose efforts the location of the camp in tbe
Revelstoke park is due, the city owes
a debt of gratitude,
Mr. Green, in this matter, has ex-
1 ended time and effort without stint
in the service of the city.
He came specially to Revelstoke to
discuss the project witb the citizens,
und in person at Ottawa he urged to
the utmost upon both tbe militia department and the parks department
the advisability of establishing the
His eflorts at length convinced the
government of the feasibility of thc
project, and his interest bas not
flagged nor did his efforts slacken until he saw his representations crowned  with complete success.
Not every constituency is represented at Ottawa by a member whose
zeal in the service of his constituents equals that ot Mr. Green, nor
are there many members whose persistence and influence with the government could accomplish what Mr.
Green has achieved.
The city council has already expressed officially its appreciation of
Mr. Green's services; the board ot
trade, at whose solicitation Mr.
Green acted, will doubtless in due
■ . rse, take similar action, and the
res duttons ol thanks will have thc
ci • currence e'f every citizen, irrespective ol political Inclinations.

have caused a slackening iu business
and industry. The occupation of the
camp will entail the location in close
proximity to the city of an addition-
lonal population of some three hutid-
dred persons, For this population
food and equipment will be daily required. A steady stimulation will

the city, while tbe task of guarding
the camp will offer opportunities for
employment for those who may desire to take advantage of them.
The extension of thc automobile

a result of the camp, will also be of
Immense Importance to tbe city. The
completion of the road menus the
establishment of Revelstoke as a
great tourist centre, with Illimitable

certainty of further development of
the park, with the need for labor
which that development will entail.

(By Harolil Begb|e,  in the 'Daily
Ohromcle,' London)
Among the Sisters at this hospital
is a little lady so delicate iu look
uud so exceedingly ^eutle in manner
that you might well doubt her abili-
ty to manage even lour or live nurs-
cs. But it is this Sister to whose
care the mutinous, the maddened,
and the nerve broken soldier is committed; it is she, of all other people
in the hosjutal, men or women, who
can soonest and most eflectively minister to a mind disoased. I am not
quite sure whether she could be Called a genius, But 1 am perfectly sure
that many soldiers regard ber as an
f.ngel She is small and birdlike, a
fcrunette, with a bright complexion,
large shining eyes, and ihe gentlest
■of smiling mouths. Her natural prct-
tiness has become spiritual beauty in
a life of alsolul dJvot.oj io the
sick and the sorrowful.
One afternoon we sat together in
the shade of cedar treLg on the green
lawn outside the officers' mess, and
fihe told me about some of her Intractable patients. 'The worst of all
the nervous cases,1 she said to me,
were those which came to us after
the great retreat from Mons. 1 had
•one man und T my charge, a splendid gunner, who would start up at the
sound of a mot ir-blcycle in the distance and declare it was a Zeppelin.
His obsession was the most pathetic
thing Imaginable. He declared that
was still on ihe retreat, and yet
all through his ravings of horror and
death he was looking for his wife and
•child. He made you feel the noise
,itid rush of a great army's retreat,
but througb it all there sounded his
is cry t.e his wife and child,
asking them were they were, calling
upon them to answer him. It was
heartbreaking, the p< or fellow's ag-
ony of anxiety for his wife aod his
child.' She paused, and said slowly,
■Some nun who w ti on the retreat
from Mons will never be ofl it us
i. ng as they live.'
'1 can   understand,'   I   said, 'that
j .. Bhould be able to handle nervous
cases,  such as this,  but 1 don't   un-

There was a man in the    hospital
suffering (nun suicidal  mania,    The
lillb        Slstei      a led     to  say  to bun.

Si ime i.f the witmi cases nre

•You'd bo surprised,' she told me.
■how mnny of lhe men come In here
with theii  poaketl full of family pho
tograpbs.      lt     helps me immensely
when   I   can   get even the   worst   of
men to talk to me about his mother
or his sisters.     You can    often     get
quickest to the reason through     the
heart,  if  your sympathy  is  genuine.
It's no use pretending  to  be sympathetic.    You     must     really like your I
wild-devil   and  be  really   and     truly
anxious to  help him. How  the  moth- ,
ers     and     sisters     help us,  without |
knowing it!'
The little Sister speaks with enthusiasm of the mothers of soldiers.
'The Colonel paid the fare of a mother to come all the way from Aber- I
deen to see her son, who had lost an
eye. Someone said to the little old
woman, 'It's his rinht eye, so he
won't have to go lack to the front.'
'That's no comfort to me,' replied
the Scotswoman; '1 want all my sons
to be at the front, if tint's where
their country needs tbem most.' Have'
you heard, by the way, that an old
lady living just outside the hospital
takes in friends of the wounded, and
makes no charge at all for their entertainment? Thnt's her contribution
to the war. She kept the girl of the
nice Shropshire boy who had lost
both hands and one eye for a whole
week; she was like a mother to her.
.Most of these guests come from far
away places, and the old lady generally arranges to take a party Into
London once a week to show them
the sights. How kind people are and
now this war has shown us the
heart of the English people! Everyone is helping.'
In the eye ward, which is this Sister's real charge, there is a very
pleasant looking m in some 30 years ,
of age, clean, respectable, cheerful
and intelligent, who spends the greater part of his time at needlework, I
the other putients looking on with
their one eye each, smiling and ad- j
miring. Tins man's story is a tragic
one. He was in thc retreat from
Mons, and during that retreat his
wife died in giving birth to ij child. '
For two months he was missing and
beard nothing of this loss. Then he
was wounded, losing one of his eyes.
When he got home it was to discov-1
er, three months after her deatii,
that he had lost his wife. Further in-:
quiry brought him the hideous news
that his wife's peojile had Sold up
his home and dissipated the money.
Such was the welcome received In
i-.iiL'I ind by as straight and honest a
man as ever (ought fir her. Happily
he encountered such friendship and ufi
fection In the hospital...tew of the
patients are mure liked and rtspect-
ed—and now he is looking forward to
the day when he will begin life over
again with his baby girl for companion.
'They are wonderful men,  our soldiers,' s-iid the little Sister.   'To    a'
woman,    of    course,   they seem like
children, and te. treat them as child-'
ren     le     the   best way of managing
them.   Some are good children, e
are naughty children, and some    are
very wicked children; but  all of them :
are tremend msly brave, and most of
Ibem have hearts that respond t.e affection. We have got a Canadian boy
m here whose fare was sei knocked
about by a shell thaj l almost tainted when I first saw the bandaged removed. Do you kiiiw what his great
anxiety is, what worries him more
than anything else His horse! He
Is always wondering wh i Is    looking i
after it.'

Lynx Clews Men
Then Runs Away
CASCADE, B, C, Aug. 27—As Walter Rollins was returning to his home
about 6.30 o'clock on Sunday evening
at a point just over the line from
Cascade and in the Deep Creek district, he was attacked by a large
lynx which leaped upon his back
without warning from a log about
i iu'ht feet above the path. Rollins
states that the weight of the animal
and the force With which iis body
struck him caused him to stagger a
few stejis and fall on his face. After
inflicting several severe "scratches and
wounds about his shoulders, Rollins
states that the lynx suddenly left
him and bounded away among the
trees, lt is supposed that the animal
was a female and had her young
somewhere near by. Mr. Rollins' in-
jurii s are not serious.
