It now costs $300,000.00 a week to'" carry on the work of the
British Red Gross, or;$16,000,000.00 a year.
Every rxiinute of the day and night it costs $30 to minister to
the sick and wounded and dying.
Last year Canada's magnificent contribution paid for the entire
work of the British Red Cross for nearly seven weeks.
This year, in view of the greater need, it is earnestly and
confidently hoped that Canada's contributions will be as
great proportionately as the magnificent offering of
last year.
Our trust is, that the Citizens \of Canada will give generously

The Lost. Sheep
Mr. Ffaukey goes on to illustrate
the nature of the unconscious and
inarticulate religion of the British
solilier hy telling of the "lost
sheep" of the Kitchener battalion.
Theee were the incurably disreput-
aMa���what most men would call
'���the wastrels.'.' They were al-
���\\ay_. iu trouble, always impecunious?, always improvident. They
elr..-il_ too much; their morals were
not above reproach. And yet, for
all that, they made strong appeal
to the imagination. They had the
elusive charm of youth, irresponsibility, vagabondage. Mr. Han-
key tells us:
''They plunged headlong. It
was their chance. For this, they
i'elt they had been born. Their
hearts were afire. They had a
craving to give their lives for the
great cause. They had a hunger
for danger. And what a nuisance
they were in that first weary year
"They plunged headlong down
the stony path of glory; but in
their haste they stumbled over
every stone. And when they did
that they put us all out of our
stride, so crowded was the path.
Were. they promoted? They
promptly celebrated the fact in a
���fashion that secured their immediate reduction. Were they reduced to the ranks? Then they
were in hot water from early morn
to dewy eve, and such was their
irrepressible charm that hot water
. o-=t its terrors. To be a defaulter
_". such merry company was a
privilege rather than a disgrace.
'60 iu despair wo promoted them
again, hoping that by giving them
_>��� little responsibility we should en-
_:._fc them on the side of good order
and discipline. Vain hope! There
;.re things that can not be over
.ooked, even in a 'Kitchener bat-
��� ���: J._il_o__\" . - ��� .      	
But the hour was to come when
���'he last shall be first aud the first
last.'"'    Mr. Hankey writes:
������'���'Then at last we 'got out.' We
:���!���' confronted with dearth, danger
and death. And then they came
.". their own. "We could no longer
svmpete with them. We stolid
i-peclable folk were not in our
' ��� ment. We kuew it. We felt
"We were determined to go
through with it. We succeeded;
but it was not without much internal wrestling, much self-conscious effort. Yet they who had
formerly been our despair were
iiow our glory. Their spirits effer-

them. Rain could not damp thera.

it was, ir. a way. the greatest joke
of all.    In a way,   for it  was an

occasion for tenderness and grief.
But if any of them was hit, 0
Death, where is thy sting? O
Grave, where is thy victory? Portentous solemn Death, you looked
a fool when you tackled one of
them! Life? They did not value
"They had never been able to
make much of a fist of it. But if
they lived amiss they died gloriously, with a smile for the pain
and the dread of it. What else had
they been born for? It was their
chance. With a gay heart they
gave their greatest gift, and with a
smile to think that after all they
had anything to give which was of
"One by one Death challenged
them. One by one they smiled in
his grim visage, aud refused to be
dismayed. They had been lost,
but they founded the path that
found them home; and when at
last they laid their lives at the feet
of the Good Shepherd, what could
they do but smile?"
Enjoyed the Fight
Mike was home wounded from
the front and he was stopped hy a
friend one day as he was hobbling
down the street on his newly acquired   crutches.
"And how did you get on iu the
big battle?" asked the friend, as he
gazed with compassion on the gallant soldier's useless limb.
"Shure,Oi had the time of me
life." replied Mike, decidely.
"But you got very badly knocked about," retorted the other.
"Yes, Oi know that," cried
Mike, enthusiastically; "but it was
the first fight I was ever in that
the police didn't stop."���Tit-Bits.

to divide everything with others?"

Some local merchants have
habit of bemoaning the large mail
order business done in feheir district, but themselves do very little
advertising iu their local papers.
It might be well to draw the attention of any such to the following statement made recently by
the manager of a large mail order
"We have a bureau whose duty
it is to read the country newspapers. There is not a paper of
any consequence that we do not
get. The bureau looks over these
papers and when we find a town
where the merchants do not advertise in their local papers or where
advertisers do not change their
advertisements regularly, we immediately ffood that section with
literature. It always brings results far in excess of the same
effort put forth iu territory where
the merchants use the local papers. ''
