It's a long way *o go,
It's a long way to Tipperary,
To the sweetest girl I know,
Goodbye Piccadilly, farewell   Leicester Square;
It's a long way to Tipperary
But my heart's right there.

Molly O

The concert and dance given  by
the citizens of Midway, was an immense success, .both financially and
otherwise, and ife can easily be said
that it was the best affair ever held
in Midway, and the treasury  was
added to   by nearly  $200.     This
with the $300 surplus from the 2-ttb
of May celebration will be given to
the Canadian Patriotic Fond.    Of
course all that was taken in  was
profit,   everyone   rendering   their
services free of charge.    The audience was feeling in the real patriotic way, and it was no wonder that
the tickets for the cushion, sold by
Mrs. J. Docksteader, went like hot
cakes, the lucky number that took
the cushion was 51, held   by   Mr.
Langdoh, InghramMt. Theprogram
was divided into two parts,   J. R.
Jackson, M.P.P.  acting as chairman, who in his opening address
stud that he was pleased to see such
a large turnout.    "This is a time |
to help," said the chairman, for all
of us to help the Empire,  in the
straits it is ip at present through
no fault of its own.    He said, "we
cant all go the front, unfortunately
there are some left behind and it is
our duty to Jjlook   after  them,  as
their breadwinners are fighting for
us, it is our duty to look after all.
Mr Jackson eulogized the loyal people of Midway in their efforts and,ex-
plained the objects of the Canadian
Patriotic in a clear manner.    After
which the following program  was
rendered;���
Chorus, Rule Britannia
Heros and Gentlemen,   P. H. Mc-
Currach
Recitation Miss Borders
Tipperary Mr. Buehannan
Charge of the Light Brigade,  Miss
May McMynn.
The Maple Leaf and God Save the
King by the audience.
Mr Buehannan had to sing several songs and by special request
sang Tipperary between the dances
the audience joining heartily ia the
chorus.
The dance which followed was a
great success, a large crowd being
present and the music which was
supplied^free by-^Bash's-, orchestra
was very much appreciated. Mr.
Bubar carried out his part as M.C.
very well and when he called- out
the "Home Sweet Home Waltz"
all said they had never spent a
more pleasing evening. The supper served by the ladies���all home
cooking was the best we ever had.
Chicken sandwiches, ham sandwiches, buns and cake galore, oh,
yum,'yum. The hall was beautifully decorated. British flags and
ensigns of the allied forces being
much in evidence, while large pictures of the King and Queen, Kitchener, Roberts, The thin Red Line
Scotch Grays and other appropriate
pictures decorated the walls.
The citizens of Midway wish to
thank all those who in any way
contributed to the success of the
evening, especially the artists who
made the concert complete, the proprietor of the hall and the orchestra who - gave everything needed
free of charge.
There are times when the pulse
lies low in the bosom, and beats
low in the veins; when the spirit,
which apparently, knows no waking, sleeps in its house of clay, and
the windows are shut, the doors
hung in the invisible crape of melancholy; when we wish the golden
sunshine pitchy darkness, and
wish to fancy clouds where no
clouds be, This is a state of sickness when physic may be thrown
to the dogs, for we wish none of it.
What shall raise the spirit? What
shall make the heart beat music
again, and the pulses dance through
all the myraid-thronged halls of
life? What shall make the sun
kiss the eastern hills again for us
with his old awakening gladness,
and the night overflow with moonlight, love and flowers? Love itself is the greatest stimulant���tbe
most intoxicating of all���and performs all these miracles, and is a
miracle itself, and is not at ihu
drugstore, whatever they say'. Tbe
counterfeit is in the market, but
the winged god is not a money
changer, we assure you. Men have
tried many things, but still they
ask for stimulant. Men try eo
bury the floating dead of their own
souls in the wine cup, but tbe
corpses rise. We see their faces in
the bubbles. The intoxication of
drink sets the world whirling again
and the pulses to playing music,
and the thoughts of galloping, but
the fast clock runs down sooner,
and an unnatural stimulant only
leaves the house it filled with the
wildest revelry, more silent, more
sad, more deserted. There is only
one stimulant that never intoxicates
���duty. Duty pats a clear sky
over every man, into which the
skylark, happiness, always goes
singing.���G. D. Prentice,

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Every now. and then a despatch
briefly mentions that, a Red CroeB
nurse has been killed while on
duty-in a field hospital on either
battlefront. The world will never
know all the quiet heroism of these
noblewomen who at the riBk of
their own lives are toiling day and
night amid the horrors and.terrors,
of war to save the lives and assuage
the agonies of others. No ' holier
service than theirs is performed on -
this earth. It is like a ray of sunshine shot across the blackness of
war.
The British army on the continent, the greatest that ever left the
shores of England, and for its size
probably the greatest fighting
force ever assembled, is no other
than the same British army that
was beingi-^o. freely, criticized, by
some people, a .few months ago ,for
ref uBing to shoot down the people
of Ulster.
British.sportsmen are living,.op

Midway, A. C. Mills has 178 head
of tbe finest cattle in America.
Mills has a record Holstein cow
which gives 121 pounds of milk in
24 hours. She has to be milked at
morning, noon, evening and midnight.
Seven thousand refugees from the
war zone, the great preponderance
of them being Belgians, arrived at
Folkestone recently on board four
steamers. Among them were
twenty-five wounded Belgiau sol-
Siers, but what attracted the most
attention was the apparent wealth
of many of the refugees.
Preparations for. sending Canada's second contingent to the front
are proceeding rapidly. Supplies,
clothing, boots, war material, etc.,
have for the most part been ordered, and are being got ready.
It is estimated that the total
fighting force that Germany can
pus in the field is 9,700,000. If all
the force is called upon, there will
need to be extensive ��� revisions of
the forecasts upon the duration. of
the war. An army of nine millions cannot be beaten in three
months. .: On the other hand, if all
are fighting, who.is looking after
the means to keep them fighting?
It is gratifying to learn that
woundB made from modern projectiles are cleanly, cut, and .more

In war time the British soldier
who whistles the ' 'Dead March in

guard room. War is gruesome
enough without humming this tune
for pastime.
No doubt thousands of soldiers
now fighting in the big European
war, do not know what they are
fighting for. Just like two pickets
along the Potomac during the
American war. A Confederate
picket shouted across the line to a
Union sentry asking him what he
was fighting for. "I'm fighting
for $13 a month, I reckon, you are
getting 816," was the reply.
Not Any More!
They were gazing out of the window of the train. The thin man
was rapturously admiring the sunset.
"Ah, Nature is a real artist,"
exclaimed tbe thin man, addressing
the fat man who sat on the opposite seat. ' 'Have you ever gazed
at her wonders? Have you never
watched the lambent flames of
dawn life leaping across the dome
of the world? Have yon never
watched the red stained islets
floating in lakes of fire? Have you
never felt the amazement of these
things?"       ,        .
"Not since I swore off," replied
the fat man as he prepared to hunt
for another seat.

By Barry Pain.
"I rejoice with you in Wilkelin's first
victory. How magnificently God supported him!"���Telegram from the Kaiser
to the Crown Princess.
Led by Wilhelm, as you tell,
God has done extremely well;
You with patronizing nod
Show that you approve of God.
Kaiser, face a question new,���
This���does God approve of you?
Broken pledges, treaties torn,
Your first page of war adorn;
"We on fouler things must look
"Who read further in that book
Where you did in time of war
All that you in peace forswore,
Where you, barbarously wise,
Bade your soldiers terrorize,
Where you   made���the deed was
fine���
Women screen your firing line,
Villages burned down to dust,
Torture, murder, bestial lust,
Filth too foul for printer's ink,
Crimes from which the apes would
ehrink���
Strange   the   offerings   that   you
press
On the God of Righteousness!
Kaiser, when you'd decorate
Sons or   friends  who serve your
state,
Not that Iron Cross bestow
But a Cross of Wood, and so���
So remind the world that you
Have made Calvary anew.
Kaiser,   when   you'd   kneel  in
prayer
Look upon your hands, and there
Let that deep and awful stain
From the blood of children slain
Burn your very soul with shame,
Till you   dare   not   breathe that
Name
That now you glibly advertise���
God as one of your allies
Impious braggart, you forget;
God is not your conscript yet;
You shall learn in dumb amaze
That his ways are not your ways
That the mire through which you
trod
Is not the high white road of God.,
To whom, whichever way tbe combat
rolls.
We, fisrhtiasr to the end, i commend
our souls.
