TOMATOES ARE DRUG  ON THE MARKET  Col. Ketchen. It was soon evident that the 29th were more  advanced than the other battalions, owing no doubt to the fact  that we had been able to carry  .out our work through the mild  Pacific winter,, whereas oi:r  comrades from the prairies  had been restricted by the severe weather, bar first week in  camp. We were reviewed, and  marched past before Major  Steele, who pronounced us the  best battalion in camp, and.he  said he had never seen a better "March Past", not even by  the "Guards" themselves.  For several reasons Dibgate  camp was   soon   condemned���������  shortage of water, sandy nature  of the ground and lack, of suitable training areas- and we subsequently moved   along.  ;with  the 31st Battalion   to   Ly-ad,a  distance of 16  miles by road  where we stayed   three   \ieeks  . undergoing a course of musketry on the range there. The 29th  we moved an entire camp and  left a day ahead of the 31st and  pitched it at Lydd in, one day,  and the following morning we  were on the range at daybreak.  After that time, reveille was at  2 a.m. every morning and our  day's work was usually completed by 11 o'clock, which gave  us the afternoon and   evening  to ourselves. Once we marched  from Lydd to    Shorncliffe���������16  miles���������to be reviewed by Major  General Sam Hughes, and after  spending a night in the pouring  rain, and standing and march  ing on parade    the  morning, we put on our packs  and marched  back    to    Lydd.  The 29th came through the ordeal with flying colors, and   I  understand we  were  the  only  battalion to receive    applause  at the saluting    base    -which  shows we gained distinction a-  mong the troops on parade.

J)  RESERVES NOW".  PROVIDED FOR  The text of the regulations to  govern the Reserve Militia of  Canada appears in the Canada  Gazette just to hand, these being framed under section 16 of  the Militia Act,.and are as follows:  1.

They left camp "about  50 minutes before us but we actually passed them on the road  and landed at our destination  thirty minutes before them. ..";.  From Lydd we came "to tit-  terpool, the new brigade headquarters, midway between Folk  stone and Ashford, and we are  now carrying out field work  under the brigade commander.  Just this week we marched to  the outskirts" of Ashford and  bivouaced for the night. We also had attached a battery of artillery and a detachment of cavalry, and other details of army  service corps, medical corps, etc  etc. and the following morning  we attached the fourth brigade  who had set out to prevent us  from reaching our camp again.  This they did and very successfully too, inasmuch as two .of  our battalions were put out of  action by imaginary artillery  fire early in the   fray,   which  from time to time named by  the Governor in Council.  2. Divisional and district  commanders will be responsible for the reserve militia as  they are for other troops located in their areas and districts.'  3. Units of reserve militia  may be associated with corresponding units of the active militia.  4. No one will be allowed to  following join the reserve militia before  he has attained the age of 35;  but for retirement or discharge  there is no age limit fixed.  5. All ranks must be physically fit; if not for service in the  field, for garrison duty or for  administrative work.  6.

Officers of the reserve  niilitia will, as such, be junior  to officers.of the active militia  of the same rank as themselves.  8'. Over officers and men.  other than those of the reserve  militia, they will not exercise  command.  9. Drill and training will be  voluntary, and will entail no  expense on the public.  TO. In time, of emergency  (war, invasion, riot or insurrection, real or apprehended),  ihe reserve militia, or any part  thereof, is liable to be. called  out on active service anywhere  in Canada.  11.

CORRESPONDENCE  Abbotsford, Sept 3 7, '15  Mr. Editor:  With your kind permission 1  would like to say a few things  with regard to the swings, merry-go-round, etc. at the school  grounds, as J. happen to be one  of the outlaws who helped to  demolish them or rather (remove them) as 1 was not iu  favor of destroying any of the  , timbers as some were inclined  to do. Now in your last issue  you say that you do not see  why they should not be there  and also you make use of the  expression (It is nice to get  even) So that I judge you think  there was some spite work in  connection with the case but 1  do not think such prompted  anyone to join in taking those  things down. Now I think.it  ' was very generous of Mr. Part-  0 n to do almost all the work i  without remuneration, but still j  1 think he should have had the  opinion of a good many of the  parents of the children before  erecting those things. Of course  he did not count on the children  being injured.  Now a petition had been in  circulation for some time previous, to have them removed,  and had been signed by most  of the parents in the town. I  refused to sign it as it was my  opinion they should first be given a trial, now that they had  been set up, but as soon as I  had seen somewhere about a  half dozen children severely injured and in several cases the  doctor had been called in, I certainly felt it my duty to sigh it.  and also help to remove those  things, before something more  serious would happen. Now I  think those responsible for putting them up should feel thankful that they are down before  any-arms or legs are broken in  which case they should certain  ly feel responsible and I feel  sure'such would have taken  place  of "getting even" about anything, but all thought of the  safety of the children. As for  myself I was even before their  removel but now 1 expect to be  a little out on tlie deal as T  made the irons which were to  be $2.25, and J. allowed 50?5 as,  my share of the subscription  which L thought Mr. Parton  should .take up as 1 then  thought -almost anyone would  aid a little in expenses, not  having foreseen the injuries the  children might _ receive, and  now I'm quite willing to refund  the money 1 received, if it will  be accepted, and any way call  it even.  .Moping that Dr.    Swifi   will  not be offended on our removing the cause of so much remuneration to him.
