1917.
Already have we advanced into another year and almost everyone has
wished almost everyone else joy and
prosperity for a twelve month. It is
safe to say that somewhere in the
neighborhood of 50 per cent of the
well-wishing was genuine and sincere,
half of the balance prefunctory and
the remainder merely conventional.
However, it is also safe to say that
few mortals really wish anyone else
any real harm—unless their interests
clash. Of course it is to be regretted
that interests will clash but when
tney do it is best to just drop out of
the path of those who would run us
down rather than drive ahead and
cause a collision—every collision being more or less of a catastrophe.
There is room in the road for all to
pass and if we are not all going the
same way let us just keep on our own
side and let the other fellow do the
same and then no wheels will get interlocked. One must expect to get
some of the other chap's dust when
the wind blows against us, but it is a
long road and most of it is fair going. We hope we won't meet any
friend coming down the hill we are
trying to climb up—in 1917.

Somewhere in    France    on a bloodstained field
A  soldier has given his life;
Never again to see his home,
His home or his loving wife.
Somewhere in France a hill is won,
But won at what a cast,
For charging there mid shot and shell
Many a hero is lost.
Somebody's   darling,   somewhere   in
France
Eager to be in the fray.
The battle is won; but there on the
field
Somebody's darling lay.
He was the pride of a mother, too,
He was the light of her eyes;
Far away in a distant land
Somebody's darling dies.
Somewhere    in   France    is  a  hero's
grave;
He has not died in vain;
He died to shield    from    a tyrant's
grasp,
To shield the world from pain.
Somewhere in France; what does that
mean
To many an aching heart;
Husband and  son and brother    are
there;
'Twas hard from them to part.
Somewhere in France Canadian boys
Are fighting hard to win.
Their cheers are ever ringing high
Above the battle's din.
Somewhere in France is joy today;
That nation has no fears.
The flag of France is with the flag
That has   waved   for a thousand
years.

A man never appreciates good luck
so much as when he is having a run
of bad.
Only a few men are born great and
the majority do not even have greatness thrust upon them.
According to the Saskatoon Phoenix a doctor of that city after feeling
a man's purse decided that there was
no hope.
All live towns are full of live advertisers. The business man who does
not advertise in the local paper is
partly dead.

IT IS MENTIONED       SECOND HAND STORE
That a late train, a later delivery of
the mail made the latest news from
camp too late for last week's issue.
That te. Neil O'Connor, Pte. W. H.
Sims and Pte. Joe Green, all members
of No. 19 Co. C.A.S.C, visited Fernie
this week,
That a bugle is hateful to blow,
When standing knee deep in the snow,
And the aches in your bones
Spoil all the sweet tones
When the temperature's 40 below.
Should you also be quite broken hearted,
See the girl from whom you are parted
Walking out with another,
And that not her brother,
You may   blow up   before   you are
started.
The moral to this is quite plain:
Ere you start to bugle gain
Get your broken heart mended
And forget your intended.
Then bugle your blooming refrain.
That Mr. C. Baby, the camp interpreter, left for his home in Montreal
this week on a two week furlough.
He will visit Kingston and Ottawa on
his return trip.
