The reason for this failure was the

in   the Mail-Herald
Mr.  Cecil Harmaworth lum presented to  parliament a  bill which seeks
to  mitigate one of the most terrible I
effects of modern war and which     in
doing so disturbs a body of the    law
of England whose stability has  beeu '
most jealously established and    safeguarded. As our law now stands private institutions are debarred by the
Lunacy  Act ol     ISW)  from receiving
patients    suffering      from   \ nervous
breakdown se» severe as to aSect their
mental condition. To obtain the  rest
and care they require they must   bc
'certified'  by two medical men on the
petition of ••' friend or relative,     and
then be taken to an asylum, hospital
or borne     licensed     by   the Lunacy
commissioners,   These   provisions were
made,   very    properly,      to safeguard
lhe  liberty  .>f  the individual  and    to
prevent  the terrible abuses of     the
lunacy  laws     which     informer days
condemned many a sane man to   Imprisonment at the instance   of     any
villain   who found  his    freedom      inconvenient. The more sensational lit-
fratnre of the middle of last century
teems with  jilots that    explain     and
justify the care     which later legislation has taken to ensure that no   one
shall    be treated as of unsound mind
save on  the most trustworthy medical   authority,    and      that  the state
shall have the fullest control   of the
Institution in which he Is treated.  In
principle this is ail to the good, and
in normal times it results iu no hardship comparable     to     its     benefits,
Since,  however,  cruelly and illogical-
ly enough, a certain cloud lianas over
a person who     has at any time been
certified of unsound mind,  these very
safeguards do have the efleet of causing medical men to    withhold    wherever  possible at  the  re4iiest of  relatives  a certificate of insanity,      with
ithe  result that sufferers from     mild
' forms  of  mental  trouble  are     S'.ime-
times denied the most efficient treatment. This result, unfortunate enough
at any time, and  removable only   by
the  growth of as spnsible a view     of
mental as of any    other kind of   ailment, is at present intensified by   the
return  from  active     service of  bundle,ls  .'f  men with  whose nervous   systems the appalling conditions ui mod-
ern war have played  havoc,  who need
the best possible treatment to   hritii:
them bark t.. the normal again, and
who are denied tins  because nursing
homes cannot receive them nn»l because there is an object mn te> rertiti-
c.iti.eii and reception in a recognized

Dot temperamentally   withstand i    the
persistant hludgtoning ol din and

most, certainly be temporary If pro
perly  handled,   for   experience  proves
that thc mental disorder arising from
shock usually vanishes with good
nursing and perfect rest. It iB clearly the duty of the state to ensure
that these shall be forthcoming quickly, fully, and under the most acceptable conditions. ,
The steps by which'the government
Lill seeks to secure this end are,
however, questionable. Nothing in its
provisions limits its application to
soldiers. Its effect would be \o make
possible the detention as a lunatic of
any person, civilian or soldier, for a
period of six months in any institution, subject only to such regulations
as to place, period, and treatment as
the home secretary, may decide to
frame with the concurrence of the
Lord Chancellor. It would thus make
waste paper of the chief guarding
clause in lunacy legislation without
specifying what provision, if any,
shall be substituted. Even in war-
lime it is a sound principle to disturb existing law no more than is
necessary in order to adapt it to £he
special needs of a new situation, and
no case can be made out for saddling
the home secretary with a responsibility the proper discharge of which
depends on the strictest Investigation
of each case. Such a course might
too easily have the opposite elfect to
that intended, and result in the
framing of regulations which would
compel to asylum treatment cases of
mental disorder normally uncertlfi-
ahle, for while the Act permits a
nursing home to accept a mental
patient it would also permit a patient apparently suffering from mental
trouble to be consigned to an nsylum
with.mt a certificate. The prime object of the bill—to ensure tbat thc
best conditions for recovery shall bc
given to soldiers suflering from shock
—can be achieved by the simple plan
of securing for them without lcgul
process special treatment such as is
given, for example, at Maudsley Mental hospital, and by confining this
minor chnnire to soldiers alone. To
drive a coach and four through the
lunacy laws, even in the interests of
so urgently necessary a step, would
be a foolish and dangerous excess.

In December, while as yet she sfoke
no word of English, in England she
wandered about Bhowlng her pass-
ports ami the papers explaining her
desired lestinat.ion, and in time stu-
found herself on the ocean, then in
Montreal with along overland triji
hefore her. "I came through just
iike a letter," -he bbj s, e mply an I
pathetically, "and my passport was
the stamp."
It was a pr ;'; day for the girl
refugee when she reached Revelst..ke
and restored the baby to its parents.
But she was very tir '1 and Still BUl
ferine from the shock of her fright.
As a result of this she l st nearly all
of her hair, and the doctors told her
that bad It not fallen out it would
have   turned   irrey.
Tryin.- to Por et   tl
Today  she   works   with   a     I r ve
spirit and tries to forget her troub-
tes while it is bright,  but  at     night
time it is harder to get away     fr u
and Bhe lives over again the distre s
ing scenes    throueh     whii I   -

dearth  of nurses and so  her     hearl
is set on returning and doing her little part.
"They say! ran not gel bac't,"
she says, "that I shi I l ' try, it
is too dangerous, But my passports

Germans nny more    and I could help

"Why  it may come any day. He may

you   will  be all  together  once  more."
But With the pathos of the little

How Divisions, Ki-gimeiits, Com-
jinnies,  Klc,  Are Made  Up.
Curious though it may seem, it is
not quite correct to refer, as many
people do, to the Indian and Colonial
troops as pari of the "British army."
strictly Bpeaklng, the term "Uritish
army" only applies to the land forces
of the United Kingdom, which consist of the regular army and the
Territorial army, and that part of
the former which serves in the British Dominions oversea, it being customary lo refer to these troops aa
the "British army" in contradistinction to the "Native army" or "Indian army" in India, and to the
"Local Forces" in South Africa and
ln the British Colonies.
The regular army, whether at
home or abroad, ls paid for by the
Imperial Exchequer, except in India
(although certain colonies pay contributions towards Its upkeep). India, however, while paying for its
own native army, also pays a contribution towards the cost of troops at
The permanently embodied portions of the tegular army consist of
thirty-one cavalry regiments, twenty-
five horse artillery batteries, 147
field batteries, ninety-nine companies
of garrison artillery, seventy-seven
companies of engineers, nine battalions of Foot Guards, 148 battalions of infantry of the line, besides departmental services, some of
which come under the head of the
Army Service Corps, that highly-
organized department of the army
which attends to the transport of
baggage, supplies, and transport of
food and forage, and also assists the
med'eal service. It should be mentioned that part of these sections of
the regular army are stationed
abroad during p nee times, but, on

rorrtes absorbed Into an expeuttionary

Thi British army, in times
of peace, is divided Into six army
corps', half of which are composed of
regular troops, and the remainder
Territorials. The strength of an
army corps Is not definitely fixed, but
consists cf alout 40,000 men.
A British infantry division is about
half an army corps, and is the smallest tactical unit possessing all arms.
It usually consists of twelve battalions, each of 1,000 men. In addition to this, there is at least two
squadrons of cavalry, from thirty-six
to seventy-two guns, beside field
companies of engineers, medical supply, transport, and signal services.
In all, its strength is normally about
20,000 men.
The war establishment of a cav*
airy regiment is twenty-five officers,
537 other ranks, and 562 horses,
formed into three squadrons. A
ovalry brigade is made up of three
regiments, and a division of four
brigades; so that a division consists
of twelve regiments, supplemented by
two horse artillery brigades, engineers, signal troops, field ambulances,
and cavalry train, not to mention one
aeroplane squadron. The total establishment of a cavalry division mobilized for war consists of 9,896 officers
and men, 10,195 horses and twenty-
four guns.
