HELP OUR BOYS
We, who through a kind Providence
are far removed from the terrors of
trench life, the stormy stress of incessant battle, the dread disaster of
imprisonment in a foreign enemy
country, can not realize how the sufferings of brave Canadians soldiers
who have, through the vicisitudes of
war, become prisoners away from all
the happy hours of home life, so distant from all the old congenial
surroundings, and eagerly these
same gallant soldiers look for letters
and small comforts from the home
land. It is our duty and it should be
a great pleasure, as it is undoubtedly
a privilege to be able, through the
good services of the Canadian Red
Cross society, to send aid throughout
the coming winter to some of the lone
prisoners of war. A fund, with the
Major's kind permission, will be started here in camp to be sent to Mrs.
Sillitoe, 18(i0 Robson St., Vancouver,
and by her to Mrs. Rivers Bulkley,
Red Cross department, London. The
Atlantic cables being at the disposal
of the R.C.S. for this purpose, so that
no delay is incurred in forwarding the
money.
Major Shaw has kindly consented
to be the recipient of contributions.
Members of the 107th E. K. R. and
others are asked to send what they
can spare each month to him.
Mrs. C. M. Shaw has graciously
promised $10.00 per month. A full
list will be published each week.
We understand that $2.50 per month
will entitle the sender to "adopt" one
prisoner of war, and his name will be
sent to the donor. We appeal to
everyone in Morrissey to give an undertaking of monthly contributions
anywhere from 5c per month up. The
Mention will gladly assist in any way
possible to help the 107th to adopt as
many Canadian prisoners of war as
possible. This is really doing real and
practical good and will reflect great
credit on the East Kootenay soldiers
and citizens, and help our boys.

To prohibit or to prohibit prohibition, that is the question. Whether
'tis nobler in mind to suffer a thirst,
yet think it outrageous fortune, or to
take arms against a sea of liquids and
by prohibiting them, plug them; to
die, to sleep, a screamful sleep, and
say we end the headache and the
thousand unnatural shocks the brain
is hair to? Tis a consumption devoutly to be quaffed. To dye, to sweep,
to weep—perchance to snore.    Aye!
There's the rub.

Of the mess of the A.S.C.
He  bangs  it at  morn, at noon  and

With a sort of a fiendish glee;
And he don't give a   for the

In the days to come, when this cookee

Is gone in his fiery chariot,
May he sit in state, on a red hot plate,
'Twixt Satan and Judas Iscariot.
He may!

THE DANCE
Labor Day was a day of storms.
However, the evening cleared up and
everything was lovely. In spite of
the inclement weather, several ladies
came to camp from Fernie for the
regimental concert and dance, which
commenced at 8:30 p.m., with Major
C. /E. Shaw in the chair, and the following program was enjoyed by an
appreciative audience:
Song   Pte. C. Wilson
Song   Pte. J. Meek
Recitation   Miss Gladys Cheston
Song   Miss Alice Wild
String Quartet Prisoners of War
Song   Pte. W. Young
Recitation   Mrs. Black
Song   Pte. J. Joinson
Recitation   Miss Hilda Minton
Piano Solo   Prisoner of War
Drumming   Bugler Edwards
String Quartet Prisoners of War
Song   Pte Gordon Ross
Especial praise is due Miss Alice
Wild, whose singing was a feature of
the evening; Private Young, who loves
the girls; Miss Hilda Minton, who told
why she couldn't join the 107th; Mrs.
Black, who wanted a divorce; and the
pianist, whose charming playing gave
so much pleasure; and the quartet,
who so kindly supplied the music for
accompaniments and dancing. The
committee did wonders, and the M.C.
was everywhere. The piano was kindly loaned by Sergt and Mrs. Ross.
Dancing was kept up till one o'clock.
Everyone had a good time. The evening closed with "God Save the King."

DANCE   MENTIONISMS
Who trod on toe many toos?
There was  a  good  a—ten—dance.
The Major said "there was a chair
in the way."
Every dancer was sorry when Reveille blue, blue, blue.
Mrs. Shaw was most generous and
played numerous waltzes.
Pte. Niel is a prince, likewise Pte.
Glenday, at providing pleasure.

Sergt. Bobbie Hamilton certainly
spread himself and no one went hungry.

chaud were welcome Fernie visitors

Falls in the morning, managed to
manipulate a multitude of good things
to eat for many merry-makers.
A man's good nature can be accurately guaged from the distance his children run to meet him as he comes
home.

RECOLLECTIONS
By a Hunter in North America
Done into English by Lt A. K. Stuart.
In the year 1912 I came over and
settled in Canada, buying a delightfully situated farm in the northern
part of the province of Alberta. My
farm is bounded on the east by the
Pembina river and on the west by an
immense swamp, which stretches for
at least thirty miles. There are lots
of little lakes and streams, which
make an agreeable change in the
scenery.
These lakes are the sporting ground
for an innumerable quantity of water
fowl, and all kinds of fish are to be
found in the adjacent brooks. In this
section there are no less than twenty-
five varieties of wild ducks, besides
geese, swan, prairie chickens and
grouse. Wild rabbits, similar to those
in my own home land, turn snow-
white in the winter, and are so numerous that they are a pest. The big
game in the district is also very plentiful and includes the moose, wapiti,
cariboo, deer, wolves and black, brown
and cinnamon bear. On the other
hand, foxes are rare, but occasionally
in the foothills of the Rockies to the
west of my farm cougars and grizzlies
are met with, besides these the beaver, muskrat, weasel, otter, fisher,
skunk and five varieties of fox, the
latter being very hard to get.
My first black bear was killed on
Sept. 8th, 1912, with a Savage .303. I
was just about to put on my clothes
when one of my neighbors came suddenly into my house and told me that
when he was feeding his stock he had
spotted a black bear in the brush back
of my house. Without waiting to
dress I went to the place, a piece of
slashed and burned land with a slight
second growth, but on account of the
dense fog I could not distinguish objects  at that  distance.
Suddenly, not ten steps from me, I
saw my friend the bear walking slowly away. I could not get a good
chance to shoot, so waited for a better opportunity. He was escaping, so
taking a chance I let fly and as the
bullet struck him Bruin stood up on
his hind legs and tried to get at me.
Before he could reach me he fell and
lay kicking and groaning, making a
great din. The bullet had penetrated
his backbone and cut into his liver.

quivering with joy, however, at getting my first bear, and as he was
suffering I put another shot into his
head and thus ended his life and my

THE VERSE THAT MADE
ALL ENGLAND LAUGH
ACTUAL EVIDENCE HAVE I NONE,
BUT MY AUNT'S CHARWOMAN'S SISTER'S SON
HEARD A POLICEMAN ON HIS BEAT
SAY TO A HOUSEMAID IN DOWNING STREET
THAT HE KNEW SOMEONE, WHO HAD A FRIEND,
WHO KNEW WHEN THE WAR WAS GOING TO END.
—By An Unknown Wit.
This little verse has a very curious
history. It appeared anonymously in
the "London Bystander" some time
ago, and already it has been more
widely quoted than anything that has
been written about the war.   You may
find it in every other paper that you
pick up, and every other person who
discusses the prospect of peace will
recite it to you. It is a pity the author
did not sign it.
