VIVA!   ITALIA!
WELCOME! ROUMANIA!
Germania!  another flag,
With Christ's own cross bedecked,
Is now unfurled to cleanse the world,
The world that thou hast wrecked.
Italia!  dear sunny land,
Home of a stalwart race,
Whence Romans ruled the world and
schooled
The Hun to keep his place;
May sons and daughters serve thee
well,
With frank and noble zeal;
Our cause is just and freedom must
Answer our joint appeal.
The banners of the nations rise
Proudly before the breeze;
British and French in every trench
With Belgian and Japanese.
Roumania! thy banner brave
We welcome to our host;
As Serbians, stride, as Russians, ride
Swift to the winning post.
Allies in aims! Allies in arms!
Allies for aye! stand fast!
The price was dear, the end is near,
But peace shall come—and last.
—Kilbee Gordon.
SOUND ADVICE
"However much we may deplore
the evils of intemperance, however determined we may be to put a stop to
them, however regretfully we may be
forced to recognize that the abuse of
alcoholic liquor has proved to be almost inseparable from the use, WE
MUST NOT COMMIT AN ACT OF
INJUSTICE TOWARDS THOSE
WHO ARE DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY INTERESTED IN THE
LIQUOR BUSINESS.
"We must remember that at present
and for long centuries the sale of alcoholic liquors has been a perfectly
legal business in itself, contrary nei-
j ther to the laws of God or man. The
abuse of wine and strong drink is
most strongly condemned in the bible,
whose teaching may be summed up in
the one sentence: "No drunkard shall
inherit the Kingdom of God," but the
use of wine and beverages of a like
nature, is nowhere condemned; rather
are they always recognized as a gift
of God for man's use and enjoyment."
—Bishop Doull.

ABDICATED
King Constantine has abdicated.
Neither the Allies nor the Greeks are
very sorry. Several Greek garrisons
have surrendered to a committee of
the revolution. Venizelos is once more
the power behind the throne.
PARCELS FOR PRISONERS OF
WAR
The post office department advises
that parcels for prisoners of war in
Germany must not be wrapped in
linen, calico, canvas or any other similar woven material.

AND A RYDER
Curb your curiosity, bridle your
breath, keep a taut rein on your temper, whip up your courage, spur on
your ambition, ride a useful hobby,
i.e., useful to others as well as to
yourself; saddle yourself with real
responsibilities (not real estate responsibilities), and start to win; and
when you have weighed in at your
best, ride hard and neck or nothing.
GET  THERE.
Not the prize is worth the while
but the impelment of striving to win
a victory over yourself and the general cussedness of things in general.
Gee! It's great to be, though poor,
busy, happy and mounted on a steady
steed with the wings of the wind and
the pace of an Arab.
Ride to win. The race is not always to the swift.
THE  MENTIONER
DEFINITIONS
A straight line is NOT the fence
at the rear of the would-be potato
field.
A circle is a round thing—so is a
certain corporal's belt.
A  PROPOSITION
Let P. of W. be an "unknown quantity." To find a certain number (2),
your reward will equal the O.C.'s de-
Light. The square of the difference
between finding the answer and the
"base" ingratitude of the said number
will be the "E" Co.—sign, plus the
tangentibility of locating the hypoth-
eis.—Q.E.D.
PTE. DAVID GLENDAY
Morrissey Camp is honored by the
presence of a returned veteran, Private David Glenday, who has just
been invalided home from the front,
where he was badly wounded. Glenday has joined the 107th E.K.R. and
has already made a host of friends.
He is an Old Country man, frae Bonnie Dundee, where the jute mills are
and he enlisted in Windsor Ont., with
the 1st Batt. Western Terriers, Col.
F. W. Hill, O.C. (now Brigadier-General, D.S.O.), and trained at Valcar-
tier Camp, leaving for England with
the    first    contingent    to    Salisbury
Plain and thence to France.
After a few hours at St. Nazier,
Bay of Biscay, Pte. Glenday was sent
to Fleurbeui and was first in the
thenches at Armentiers, now known
as "Death Valley," and later to Pop-
perhinge, in Belgium.
He was seriously wounded at
Langemarcke, the official name of the
battles of St. Julien and Ypres, in the
knee, which will affect him for life.
He received this wound in the advance
with the 4th Batt., who were the first
to reach the German trenches. No less
than five pieces of shrapnel were removed from Pte. Glenday's knee in
the course of five operations. The
4th Battalion lost 750 men in this engagement, 300 only answering the
roll call.
After being wounded Pt. Glenday
crawled to headquarters with a message calling for reinforcements, which
were, however, not forthcoming, and
was then taken to the dressing station, which the Germans shelled, and
the wounded had to be removed to
Popperhinge Field Hospital, thence to
the clearing station; then the hospital train took the poor fellows to
Boulogne, where fast hospital boats
take them to England.
In twenty-three hours ofter being
wounded our veteran woke to find
himself in a comfortable bed at
Chatham Hospital. Besides being
wounded, Glenday was gassed and
suffered much from this terrible mon-
strocity of modern warfare. After
spending twenty-seven weeks in bed
he got sick leave to visit friends near
Scarboro and he saw the infamous
ruins made in the raid of 1914. Then
for a month to Shorncliffe before the
medical board; then to the reserve
battalion; then by the S.S. Missan-
abie to Quebec and before the medical board there, and on to the West
and   Cranbrook,  B.C.
His parents moving to Calgary,
Glenday at once joined the 107th at
Morrissey and is a welcome addition
to the crowd of old service men in the
camp.
He says the treatment of the sick
and wounded surpasses anything ever
done for the British armies in the
field. Every comfort and kindness is
shown, and the hospitals are well
equipped and first-class attention is
paid to one and all.
Pte. Glenday has the temporary
medal badge for service at the front,
also the Queen's South African medal.
He served with the Imperial Light
Horse, the crack regiment of Africa,
and was at Bethlehem, Tiger's Kloff
and at Twee Fontein on the famous
Christmas eve when the Britishers
kept the Day of Rejoicing whilst the
Boers kept up a continuous attack
and assault. Getting fever in the
month of January he was ordered
home.
The Imperial Light Horse has its
headquarters at Johannesburg, Col.
McKenzie commanding.
Pte. Glenday has lost three cousins
in the present war, one an officer in
the R.E.'s Royal Scots, Territorials
and Field Artillery.
The best is none too good for Private  David  Glenday.
CHEERED CANADIAN TROOPS
When the King reviewed
18,000 Canadian troops on Hanley
Common, Hindhead, recently, representing every part of the Empire, he
reminded their commanding officer
that many had come 8,000 miles to
serve their country, the spectators
cheered the overseas boys most heartily. The (>7th Batt., Western Pioneers, Lt.-Col. Lome Ross commanding, led the march past. Such cheering was never heard at Hindhead before.
TO BONNINGTON
As we go to press we learn that a
detachment from "E" Co., in charge
of Lt. D. M. McLean, will leave for
Bonnington Falls on Monday morning, transferred to "H" Co., 107th E.
K.R. Many more than the Mentioner
wili miss the genial lieutenant, and
wish him good luck.

J?fgn your name in full Address all
communications to the Editor, Morrissey  Mention.
"Ye Editor,"
Morrissey Mention.
Dear Sir: Enclosed find 1 night cap
in reply to ad. seen in Mention of last
week's issue, as the Red Cross M.D.
has departed to a warmer climate.
Have only sent in one.
Yours truly,
Mrs. J. W. W.
To the Editor,
Dear Sir:—In a recent issue of the
Morrissey Mention, attention was directed to an objectionable pr-actice in
vogue here and opposed to military
camp life, viz., general untidiness and
a proneness to cultivate habits that
make for disorderly and unhealthy
surroundings. In this connection I
was impressed with a sentence recently used by Professor Stephen
Leacock of McGill University.
"Almost every commodity of man's
enjoyment, and every form of pleasure is capable of Mis.use." This is
distinctly applicable to camp life, and
we are all more or less apt to take advantage of leniency; freedom from
harshness is frequently mistaken for
license.
These acts of untidiness, with here
and there an empty cigarette packags
flung carelessly down, and fragments
of a hundred and one things thrown
around, directly tend to make an un-
hygenic camp.
I am convinced that it is only necessary for me to point out this defect in order to have that remedial
measure at once applied of NOT DOING IT AGAIN.
One feels when appealing to soldiers that "A word to the wise is
sufficient."
C. AE. SHAW, Major.
(Ed.—We now have the Major's
word that something will be done, but
not throwing things on the parade
ground and around the post office and
orderly room and elsewhere won't
clear  away the rubbish there now.)
DISTURBERS
When an inebriate spends the wee
sma' hours shouting in the hotel corridors that there are "three things
he wants," give them to him, a trouncing, a throwing out and another
trouncing, and you will give every
one in the hotel and yourself a
chance to sleep.
CAMP  HUGHES  HAPPENINGS
By Our Correspondent.
A sergeant was accidently shot at
the ranges at Camp Hughes last week
during rifle practice. The troops were
using blank cartridges but one happened to be alive and the poor fellow
was  shot through the eye.
Privates Corson and Sweeney have
returned to camp from Fernie, B.C.
At Camp Hughes, Man., where
there are many Fernie and district
men encamped, there are four moving
picture shows, a branch of the T.
Eaton Co., Henry Birks and Hudson's
Bay Company stores, as well as the
usual flock of photographers' studios,
and last but not least, a huge camp
laundry.

To Bonnington Falls
He has gone! We are not referring
to the Duke, although our object resembles him in appearance. "H" Co.
107th E.K.R., whose lines have fallen
to do duty at Bonnington Falls, is the
gainer, while w"E" are the losers,
when on last Monday morning at 9
a.m., "E" Co., through chosen representatives, said regulation farewells
to our gallant Lt. Venus. The regimental order instructing him to proceed to Nelson came the previous day,
and the Mentioner, note book in hand,
softly humming a humming tune "We
shall weep for we shall miss him,"
flanked the "ex-mounted," halted, saluted and prepared to receive whatever he could get in the nature of
facts.
We say "ex-mounted," for whereas
Lt. Venus' military career started in
the Wiltshire Yeomanry of England.
He has had years of honorable and
noted service in the R. N. W. M. P.,
where he made many sensational arrests. "Have you been shot, sir?"
asked the scribe. "No, but I have
been very near it," was the answer,
as he referred briefly to an incident
where he brought in an outlaw whose
bullet had ripped his   serge   sleeve.
Mr. Venus proceeded to Africa with
the Wiltshire regiment and served
with distinction during that campaign
and was present at King Edward's
coronation when in the R. N. W. M. P.,
leaving them at the commencement of
the war with the rank of Sgt.-Major,
and he at once took a commission in
the 107th E.K.R. on the organization
of that regiment in 1914. There is
a plurality of overseas battalions, C.
E.F., who will remember him, for he
has accounted for hundreds of fit men
for them, and we hope they will see
this notice, especially the 102nd,
103rd, 143rd and 225th, etc.
Again, Lt. Venus, ho! good luck!
For friendship never freezes. May
you be overtaken by rapid and well
deserved promotion.
Est ce que nous avons le coeur
Brise? Non, Monsiuer, we bow towards you and wish you a soldier's
farewell and trust we shall meet
again  at the reservoir.
By the time this leaves the press,
we hope to hear that Mrs. Venus and
Dorothy have safely arrived in England, where she is paying a visit to
her parents.

The Mention goes everywhere and

Who puts the MEN in Mention?
The Mentioner, of course.

That those who are pessimistic

bellicose behavior, the women of Canada should have the vote without
question—Now.

Tom.
