than seven years the youngest sergeant of "C" company, 2nd Battalion.

eighties meant something more than
attending drill, for 63 recruit drills
had to be made before the men were
allowed to drill with their company,
and a certain number of points had
to be made at 100, 200, 300, 400, 500,
and 600 yards in order to gain the
capitation grant and be eligible to
stand in the ranks, and drill with men.
The drill instructor of "C" company
was twenty-eight years in the regular
army and an old Crimean veteran
with eight medals an his breast, and
was not only never late for parade but
was never known to be less than ten
minutes before time; a soldier and a
man. Sergt. Lane was far too young
to earn the Capitation grant when
first introduced to soldiering, so Surgeon-Major Thompson had a small
uniform made and took him along to
camp as medical orderly. The days
that the doctor was not on horseback
he was trotting around amongst the
Officers with a first-aid case slung
over his shoulder.

CHILDREN'S SPORTS

Last Tuesday a sports day was held
in camp for all the children of officers
and men of the 107th E.K.R., and as

old had a royal good time. The hardworking committee was indefatigable in its endeavors to give pleasure

elders, enjoyed themselves immensely.

Mrs. C. M. Shaw very kindly
awarded the prizes to the lucky winners. Mr. Tom Prentice on behalf of
the A. Macdonald Co., Fernie, most
generously donated a huge bucket ot
candy, a big bunch of bananas and a
case of oranges to the children. He's
a prince, and could easily be mayor of
Morrissey by acclamation.
VISITORS FROM MONTANA
Mr. Pat. Cunningham, of Eureka,
Montana, with his wife, Master C.
Cunningham and two charming little
twin daughters, motored into camp on
Saturday last, a distance of 60 miles.
The party was much pleased with
everything they saw and delighted
with the beautiful handiwork of the
prisoners of war, as well as with all
the arrangements for their comfort,
etc., Master Charlie wanted to see the
soldiers drill. Everyone was relieved
that he didn't. He's too young to be
a recruit, but is a genuine enthusiast.
"Pat" is the genial host of the National hotel and the proud possessor of a
real jaunting car—from Ireland.
He's one of "the bhoys" and only indulges in creme de menthe on the 17th
of March. He has learnt to speak
English since he left the Emerald
Isle. As we were saying, he's one of
the bhoys.

THE SONS OF CANADA
The Sons of Canada, and who are
they ?
The Challenged to a deadly fray,
With heart of steel, to dare, to do,
To play the game, in  God's way,
through,
Their gallant best;—in soul array,
And these are they.
The  Sons  of  Canada,  and  who  are
they ?
The men who feel the forward sway,
Till blood-red hand of Iron Will
Has spent its frightfulness, its ill;
So note them; hark them; they obey—
Well, these are they!
The  Sons  of  Canada,  and  who  are
they?
No pretence at a vain display—
The men who make the battle strong,
For right, for honor—with a song!
The men who smile on hope's dim day,
And these are they!
The  Sons  of  Canada,  and  who  are
they?
They struggle for a later day,
When world of pain and strife forgot,
The stars still shine, forget them
not!
And  mark their  splendor while you
may,
For these are they!

And smite the evil lurking there,
Then pass, with glory, from the day,
And these are they!

AN APPEAL
It's all very well for those in khaki
to say we are doing our bitjit's all
very well for those not in khaki to
say we are giving liberally and doing
what we can to help; the Canadian
Patriotic society is doing really noble
work and needs every dollar it can
get to help those whose wage earners
have gone overseas, to assist the women and children of the men who
have saved our freedom and are today fighting for us and ours. So even
if you have done your share, do a bit
more by attending the public meeting
on October 9th at Victoria hall, and
buy a ticket for the patriotic dance
which will take place after the meeting. You will be helping a good cause
and have a good time yourself, besides
giving someone else a good time, too.
Sir Herbert Ames has been the great
moving spirit in the work of Canada's
greatest and most important patriotic organization. We hope he will
take in the dance, too. Mr. Fred Nation is a loyal Victorian, a member
of the Civic Retrenchment association and other bodies of that city, and
he has devoted his entire time to the
furtherance of the patriotic society of
B.C. When public men can give their
time, influence and money to help
those whose fathers, husbands or
sons are in France or Flanders, we
private individuals should help them
by doing all we humbly can, and we
will.

The Egg Marks act is supposed to
be in force in this province and Fernie
is in this province, so are the firms
that handle eggs in this province. The
hens cannot, and would not if they
could, mark their eggs with a date
stamp, Nature not having provided
them with the necessary apparatus,
but it is up to those who sell eggs to
the general public to live up to this
act, as it is up to the purchasers of
hen fruit to see that their purchases
are stamped according to the law.
If you like the size of the Mention
this week help us to maintain this
standard by sending in your subscription to the paper and tell others to do
the same.    We need it.

A   FEW   FACTS   FROM   FERNIE
Sergt. E. H. Lane, N.C.O. in charge
of the C.A.S.C, Morrissey camp, was.
a welcome visitor to town this week.
Sergt. -Major Minton motored in
from the camp Monday afternoon villi
several khaki-clad passengers.
Mr. H. W. Sheridan, G.N.R. superintendent from Whitefish, Montana
made a hurried visit to Fernie on
Monady in his private car attached
to the daily train. He was accompanied by his secretary, H. W. Sheridan, Jr.
Mrs. Lynn, of Gateway, B. C, is
visiting friends in town.
There was a house on the main
street on Monday. There are several
bordering on the main street every
day. This one, however, was deciding
which side of the street was the best.
C. J. Reiley, advance agent for The
Famous Bostonians, made a tour of
inspection of the Fernie-Fort Steele
brewery yesterday afternoon, accompanied by two other congenial souls,
and says that it is the most up-to-date
plant in the interior. The Bostonians'
a.a. is some judge.

Whalley, Mrs. Bonnell,    Mrs.
Mrs. Wright and a party of 225th< rs.
The dunce got two black eye-. Tl -,
were other black eyes of the fairer
and  wiser sex.
The sheriff put a stop to a pugilistic encounter.
The pick-a-back wrestling was a
huge success.
One fair, fat and forty-like lady
went home very mad because the
Mentioner offered to carry he;- fair
and forty, but wanted to leave the Eal
for someone else. We decline to Mention 'er more.
The committee were princes—in
disguise.
Over three hundred spectators; 69
youngstnters; many maters; plenti o i
paters; some potaters; three first
raters and their dictators; one or two
ex-agerators; no agitators; devious
debaters; three colossal caterers;
bottles of inflaters; it was some afternoon. The bonfire was all-fired pleasant.
The new hay rack precluded a race
bewteen  the  C.A.S.C.  drivers.
The Eskimo ran a nice ice cream
wagon. Pte Donaldson took the cake;
he wafi the Candy Kid, too.
Sergt. Ross was official paymaster
and did wonders with a limited exchequer.
A laidy in sky blue served the tea
to a nicct, and never left Harry son
of herself alone.
The Eskimo was the one person
who did not feel the cold, but he did
feel a bit sheepish.
Bugler Black, wl ^>se knee is once
more O.K., was there; who wasnt' we
would like to know.
Oh, you pop! Oh, you ice cream!
Oh, you tea and cakes and cookies
and candies! Oh, ye dance! and oh,
you tomorrow morning after.
There was a sound of revelry by
night.
Of the dance our special reporter
has nothing to say; he was too busy
—and had a whale of a time. The
music was Al; the piano kindly loaned
by Sergt. and Mrs. Ross. Everything
was admiral and the oranges navel;
and even the keel row indulged in.
No one got half-seas over or three
sheets in  the wind.
Perhaps the event of the day was
the obstacle race. Under benches,
over the green, around the sentries—
with a long run to boot—and home to
a prize the tape-holders who had won
the race, and surmounted and submarined the obstacles.
Niel was on the bust when he
kicked the ball.
In the Under 5 boys' race, Jackie
Minton did a summersault, or rather
a Fall fall.
Pte. Goole made an excellent though
"slim" constable. His goatee was a
dream.
Sergt. Black looked like the very
devil—and thereby hangs no tale.
Mrs. Constable Meek was anything
but meek; his other un-mention-ables
were something to remember; and
his nether extremities made a great
impression.
Mrs. M. proved to be one grande
sprinter. If she ever undertakes to
run away, Lieut. A. J. had better get
into training or he'll never catch her.
Re the forms wanted at the C.A.S.
C. office: The major told the junior
clerk to help himself. Did he mean
the benches or the fairy-like forms so
prevalent.
The human   race is as it were—a
i blind-fold race—so the youngsters got
a wee bit taste of life.
Sheriff No. 107 was a busy man.
He was some bettor, too, and had a
mint on the ladies' race.
Mrs. O.C. kindly loaned her fine
camera to a reporter, but the sun
sulked behind a cloud all  afternoon.
Had Mrs. C. M. not fallen over
a crater in the married ladies' race
when she was leading the field, she
would have won easily.
PATSIE HENRY
With   the  Bostonians
It is mentioned in Morrissey:
i A sprinkling of snow covers a multitude of sins, and a long skirt often
covers a multitude of shins.
Mail this Mention to one of your
many friends.
The world is made up mostly of
kind people and some of the other
kind.    It's kind of all right.
Some men are so blue they even
;ag     ate their own troubles.
now take the highways.
The enemy has also left the alleys and
taken  to the highways.
We know one reporter so wide
awake who went to bed and slept with
his note book.   That's a of a
note book! He says he liked the extra cover, which is well said, but it
made the pens ill!!
It is a waste of time and money to
count  it.    Spend  it,  or  save  it  for
(,. i one else to spend.
If there is no soap in the hotel bath
room, no key to the door, no bath
towels available, no hook to hang-
clothes on, and no blind to pull down,
it's not a hotel; it's minus the "ot."
Take our advice: go dirty; go anyway.
Sing in the morning, early. Any
lamed fool can sing at night.
Ad hall with a piano, a pillar,
a i tove and several fly papers is not
only a dance hall, it's a temptation to
■, a poor partner into the pillar,
against the piano, on to the stove
:: i> over the fly paper. That would
be a  luxurious delight.
That the "everlasting" lawsuit is
still going strong at Vancouver. Mr.
Upjohn, K.C., has at last completed
the 98th day of his to-be-half-yearly
address. When he gets finished the
judge's grandson will be called to the
bar and the K.C. to the bier. The
case was taken before Mr. Justice
Eve. It's a long twilight—or long-
suffering legal light—that will listen
ill day every day.
That Bernard Curtese, who lives at
the foot of Mt. Eva, has 200 goats and
sends cheese to Chicago and other
eastern points. Both Curtese and his
wife came from Naples about forty
years ago. They have three children
and 40 acres of land adjoining the
G.N.R. yards.
That automobiles kill many more
people in the peaceful United States
in one year than zeppelins do in England in time of war.
That the C.A.S.C. has a past; no
more repast.
That it has happened that bottles
are quite by accident brought into
camp with some sticks in them, but
this week one of our gay Lotharios—
a private—shipped one out to a sweet
charmer with a full-rigged ship in it.
That there are three less snakes in
camp. Pte. Jack Abbot took them
away with him on his swagger stick.
That work on the root house has
begun.
That Sergt. Lane did some tall
shooting at the range on Saturday.
He's always up to the mark.
That "Dolly" has been adopted for
the winter by Sergt. Lane. Christmas presents of hay and oats will be
cheerfully accepted.
That in spite of a raw October afternoon the kiddies besported themselves on Tuesday afternoon, and not
one complained of the cold or anything else.
That the Sergt.-Major ran over a
partridge in his motor. The partridge
was not in the motor, but in the way.
That it's not wise if you get an inch
to take an ell or someone is liable to
toll you to go there.
IT IS MENTIONED   IT
That if it is the Three Sisters draw
the Mentioner to Fernie, it's Miss Mt.
Eva that attracts Mr. Tom P. to Morrissey every week.
That the G.N.R. conductor evidently carries a stop watch—with the accent on the stop—over at the customs.
It's bad customs that make good long
stops.
That wood or no wittles is the new
watch-word.
That Pte. Gris paid a visit to Coal
Creek this week.
That it is a long tale the comets
can tell. One is due now.
That Swinton station is a pood place
to wait any while—no seats, no seats,
no seats.
That our genial host of Ye Eureka
Inne does not like charming snake
sticks.
That the high floods this year affected certain barrels at Cranbrook,
and it took an inspector to find out
that the stock was in liquidation.
That contributions to the "Ladies' "
Mention are in order. The issue is
due about November 9th, King Edward's birthday.
That data and advertisements for
"Newspaperdom in the West" (Nov.
2)  is already coming in.
That a courteous traveller—who
shall be nameless—presented the
Mentioner with a tin of Shu-Shi—and
it's the only only for boots.

That what Uncle Berigan does not
know about shoeing horses isn't worth
mentioning.
Thad golds are mote easy to ged
but hard to led go of.
That the regimental mess who ate
their bear mascot on breaking camp
for overseas committed a gross act of
near cannibalism. Had they not done
so the bear might have led the hundred and forty forth to battle and
died honorably instead of horribly.
That Pte. Jack Abbott has made a
host of friends here who are sorry
the camp will see him no more for
a while. He has gone to Camp Hughes,
196th Batt. We all hope he comes
back a favorite general, as he went
away a general favorite.
That Pte. Norman Shaw, 196th
Batt., returned to Camp Hughes almost as soon as he got back to Morrissey, where he was orderly room
sergeant. The very best is none too
good for Pte. Shaw.

Monday from his oldest son, Pte.
Alex. Shaw, 54th Batt., somewhere in
France, dated Sept. 1. Pte Shaw had
just come through his' first ten clays

and uproar as terrific. He says the
country is wonderfully beautiful—
more so than the peasantry—and the
mud not as bad as he expected.
Lieut. Claude C. Purdy, R.N., formerly with the Canadian Hank of
Commerce at Greenwood, B.C., sailed
Sept. 21st for England from Montreal

a week, Major A. P. Cuthbert, assistant commissioner of the R. N. W.

highly respected officers. He was 56
years old and leaves a widow, one
daughter and two sons, both on active service.
Captain Tusk, of the 131st Batalion
lost his father last week in Vernon.
To be captain in first Canadian
Pioneer corps: Lieut. J, Duff-Stuart,

not too much to say that the famous
Tun maker can be equally and sublimely serious and that the idyllic character of the scenario was not at all
out of keeping with what must be
only one. if the least known, sides of
Charlie Chaplin's interesting character.
THE  GRAND  THEATRE
"Britain Prepared" was not a success in Fernie on either Monday or
Tuesday evenings owing to trouble
with the electrical aparatus, much to
the disappointment of many visitors
from Morrissey camp. But Wednesday and Thursday evenings the management having secured the assistance of a competent operator, the
show was good—more than good—
but the orchestra was too prone to
believe the audience deaf.

The Orpheum theatre management
was fortunate enough to secure a

THE   FAMOUS   BOSTONIANS   TO
BE SEEN  AT THE GRAND
ALL NEXT WEEK
If you talk in your sleep and are a
married man, don't go to see the
Famous Bostonians when they dance
in to Fernie at the Grand theatre on
next Monday night, as they will without doubt captivate you completely
and induce you to mention their names
in your sleep. Of course, if you explain this to your wife before you go
it will be all right.
This charming company is dancing
and singing its way up and down the
land for the twelfth consecutive year,
and it stands to reason they could not
do it if they did not please.
There are some new faces and voices this season as well as the old favorites. Among the new members are
three Australians: Miss Dottie Brown,
Mr. Charles Bennett and Miss Ethel
Naylor. Miss Brown is a dancer of
great renown in her own country, and
as a member of the Pollard Opera
company created a big sensation in
this country by her clever work. Mr.
Bennett, the first young man to ever
hav an active part in the Bostonians'
productions, has been accorded recog
nition from the musical critics as one
of the foremost young tenors of the
day and an actor of considerable ability. Miss Naylor is a dancer of no
little ability arid is vested with a
sweet singing voice. Patsie Henry
and Doris Canfield, those two youthful commediennes, are with the company this season as well as the prima
donna, Miss Ina  Mitchell.
The company will open their engagement with a special matinee on
Thanksgiving day in the famous musical comedy "The Isle of Dreams,"
which will be repeated for* the night
performance. On Tuesday night "The
Golden Slipper;" Wednesday night
"The Girl in the Shrine;" Thursday
night "Tipperary Mary;" Friday
night and Saturday matinee "The
Rose of Honolulu." For the closing
bill on Saturday night Manager Lang
will offer a big revue of the most successful scenes and song hits of the
bills produced during the week. On
Saturday afternoon a special school
children's matinee will be given. Any
school child will be admitted for half
price.
