The part the telephone plays in business and sdcial life is
often never appreciated until an emergency -arises. Recently a
��� case arose where Long Distance was asked to get on the wire a
party-who were cruisiilg in a yacht in the Gulf Of Georgia. It
was not known where he was, but the message was extremely
urgent. Without detailing the work of the operator or the iium-
' ber of places called, it is enough to say that the party was located and a me-sage sent out by a rowboat that he was wanted
on the telephone.   Then he talked with Vancouver.
On such occasions the inestimable value of the telephone is
brought home.

The horses belonging to Chas.
Dempsey disappeared from human
vision some time ago. Charley
searched the hills and valleys for
a week, but could not find them.
Perhaps thev have been drafted,
or wandered into a sausage factory and been killed by the machinery. Perhaps they have been
shot for committing highway
robbery in Greenwood. In future Charley should put moccasins on his noble equines, so that
he can track them when thev
wander away from - their happy
home. Charley has the sympathy
of a vast multitude of kind
friends in his sad bereavement,
and they sincerely hope that he
will not lose his dog.
The Red Cross Concert on
Tuesday of last week provided a
real musical treat. Only a small
audience assembled but they
heard one of the best programs
that has been presented in Greenwood for a long time. The hall
and lights were donated by Mrs.
Flood; the expenses of the printing were defrayed by some of the
performers, and the proceeds
amouuted to $12.50 were handed
over for Red Cross work. The
following were. the performers
who assisted: Pianoforte, Mrs.
Smyth; Violin, Miss Kerman;
Violincello, Rev. H. W. Simpson; Recitations, Mrs. Ashby;
Songs. Rev. E. A. StG. Smyth,
and Messrs. McCatnmon and McCurrach.
Charles Walker, field expert
and general rambler for

prospecting for new subscribers

nature has richly endowed the
hypnotic Charley with all the
qualities that make a good salesman. He has been a resident of
Nelson for 18 years, and is versatile.X in x his'-'.-. occupations. He
ran the Sunny side hotel at one
time, and not a single boarder
died from indigestion. Then: he
bought a Turkish Bath establishment at a sheriffs sale, and made
it hot for all his patrons. The
business kept bitn in a sweat all
the time, and, -although his feet
never got cold he had to quit, because he could not compete with
the lake, or the Neisonites antipathy to thermal ablutions. During his career as ���' an hotel clerk
he never ; fell downstairs, woke
up the wrong; woman, 'lost his
diamonds, drank swamp whiskey,
p! ayed a stack of 1.blues ;nor slept

Training* of Canada's Men
Each Prepared Individually for Battle Conditions in Short Time
'1 lie following- description ot the
training of Canada's soldiers after
their arrival overseas is authorized
l'V_ the militia department:
The art of training soldiers has
made a great advancement in the.
past two years in the art of active
warfare. During the past year th : art
:ias been pretty thoroughly mastered,
and the iraini-g -f 5r>ldie^ h��s ueen

Work of Moment
Establishment of  Cabinet   Is   Indisputable  Constitutional
The London Times in an editorial
on the _d_cc'.'Mon of thc government
to lioia regular meeting's of sonic of
tue more important ministers outside the war cabinet, for purposes of
inter-deparlmcnlal settlement, says it
presents no exceptional novelty.
"There is no change in the incidence, responsibility or relations of
lhc government with parliament, except in thc internal arrangement.
The business of this home affairs
committee is more important for
,|-what it suggests than for what it is.
Its establishment may hasten the inevitable movement towards a true
division of Tocal and imperial business. The supreme fact of thc moment in the evolution of the British
commonwealth is that Borden,
Hughes aud their colleagues overseas, including those of India, arc
definitely  engaged  on    equal    terms,
BricjUetted Fuel
Governments   Recommended   to
, tablish Lignite Plant
Establishment of a lignite briquet-
ting plant to be financed and operated by the^Dominion, Manitoba and
Saskatchewan governments is recommended by the lignite committee
of thc advisory council for scientific"
and industrial research, The committee's report favors establishment
of the plant in South Saskatchewan
"at a locality where the lignites are
of poor grade, with the idea that if
it were successful at this point, it
would undoubtedly be successful
elsewhere in Saskatchewan and Alberta." y
The committee's estimate gives
$400,000 as thc capital cost of thc
completed plant. Production costs at
the plant for carbonised and briquct-
ted fuel covering operating costs and
fixed charges, are estimated at not
more than seven dollars pcr ton. In
this estimate no financial allowance
has been made for the recovery of
by-products which arc stated to be
large and valuable.

he is gretitly disappointed at lhe

have told his entourage a number of
times that he had a sort of feeling
thai he would not sec the end of thc

Builded Better
Than He Knew
Brought    Together      the     English-
Speaking Peoples More
So thc kaiser and his advisers havc
brought together the English-speaking peoples more closely and more
rapidly than the fondest dreamers
after more intimate relations between them dared to hope. That, as
wc ventured to point cttt when the
president called upon congress to
declare that Germany had made war
upon thc Republic, is an immense
event in the history of thc Old World
and of the Ncw���the greatest that
has happened, except the war itself,
since thc French revolution. It is
having, and tvvill have, complex and
far-reaching consequences both for
lhe British empire and for the. United States in many spheres of thought
and of activity. Its military results
upon the great conflict between "militarism" and democracy promise to
turn thc scale decisively when once
lhc Republic lias placed her armies
in the field.���London Times.

Hard to Beat a
Smiling' Army
If Not Corrected in. Its Early Stages
Consumption May Follow
In no disease is delay or neglect
more dangerous than anaemia, a poverty of thc blood. Jt is very common
in young girls and in persons vho
arc overworked or confined .within
doors. It makes its approach in 'so
stealthy a manner that it is often
well developed before its presence is
But taken in time there is a specific, a tonic medicine which'increases
the number of red blood corpuscjes
thus enabling the blood to carry the
life-giving oxygen to all the tissues
of the body. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
have had unbounded success in the
treatment of this stubborn disease
because of this wonderful propcrt}'.
Thc correction of a'nameic conditions
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is as certain as anything in medical sciences.
Miss Jessie McLean, Trenton, N. S.,
says:���"I was as weak as it was possible for anjr one to be, and yet be
able to. go about. My blood seemed
to have turned almost to water. I
was pale, the least exertion would
leave mc breathless, ancl,when I w'ent
up stairs I would have to slop and
rest on thc way. I often had severe
headaches, and at times my heart
would palpitate alarmingly. A good
friend urged mc to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and I have retison to bc
grateful that 1 took the advice. Soon
after beginning thc use of the Pills
I began to get stronger, and by thc
time I had taken seven boxes I felt
that I was again enjoying good
liwlth. I think Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills arc a blessing to weak girls,
'and 1 shall always warmly recommend them."
These pills arc sold by all medicine dealers or will be sent by mail

_ School Boys on the Land

Last -year thc schoolboys of Great
Britain did excellent service on the
land, especially in connection with
thc harvest, and this ycar it is hoped
thai they will even more largely contribute fo the labor resources of the
farmer. Urgent appeals arc being
made to thc farmer to grow more
potatoes, and the ministry of food
lias staled that thcy will even more
largely contribute to the labor resources of thc farmer. In this connection the Scotch education department realize the enormous help thcy
could give, without much dislocation
of school arrangements, by_ setting
free a certain number of children in

Contains  More   Protein,   Pound
Pound, Than Do Most Meats
As a means of conserving meal
supplies for shipment abroad the
United > States government is carrying on a propaganda for the eucou'r-
iagement of the making and con-
i sumption of "cottage cheese," which
is made from skiyi milk. This
cheese contains more- of protein,
pound for pound, than do 'most
meals. A gallon of milk will, it is
said, make about a pound and a lnllf
of cheese.
��� Another most nutritious and appetizing food is in the form of what
is commonly known as "Dutch
cheese." No special equipment is
called for in this case, and the
cheese can bCN made in any home.
Skim milk is allowed to sour, the
���whey is drained off through a col-
lander, and a little butter, salt and
pepper arc added to the curds, which
are Plien ready lo serve. The cheese
is cooling, palatable and body-building���an excellent addition to the
evening meal.
The Bottom Rung' of Ladder
for German Brutality Beyond AH Char-
I acterization
_ The Foe of Indigestion.���Indigestion is a common ailment and few
are free from it. It is a most distressing complaint and often the suffering attending it is. most severe.
The very best remedy is Parmelcc's
Vegetable Pills taken according to
directions. Thcy rectify the irregular actioif of thc stomach and restore
healthy action. For many years thcy
have been a standard remedy for
dyspepsia ancl indigestion and are
highly' esteemed  for their  qualities.
!    Thc Germai\ bombing of the Brit-.
��� ish hospitals in France is an acH in
regard lo which ordinary language
fails. Thc sweeping of thc beds of
thc wounded with machine gun lire,
and the ruthless killing of the" devoted nurses and attendants who remained at their duty, is an abomination which seems to remove the
German from the pale of humanity.
Amid its horrors the one redeeming
feature is the heroism of the women
who refused to desert their posts and
met death and wounds along with
thc helpless men who lay on their
beds. Thc rest is brutality beyond
all characterization. Throughout the
war the airmen have been insistent
in imputing chivalrous conduct to
one another, and have paid honors
lo their fellows, even of German
race, who have fallen. An incident
such as that which is recorded this
morning may well shake a faith
which has survived many shocks. It
would bc repugnant to all feelings to
give horrors of war to the men who
have deliberately laleMi part fir aa

A  Fifty Per  Cent.  Increase in    the
Wool Output '
Now lhal shearing is well under
way, it is possible to arrive at a
fairly reliable estimate as to the
quantity and value of llic wool clip
of Western Ca- ada this ycar as compared with last year. Reports from
thc different centres indicate thai
there will he an increase of approximately fifty per cent, in thc quantity
of wool marketed from thc three
prairie provinces. The members of
the Southern Alberta .Wool Growers'
Association have J.?5,OiJ0 sheep as
against 158,000 sheared a year ago.
From these il i< expected lo obtain
about 1,600,00') pounds of wool. .The
l'iiichcr Creek Assoeialion will have
about 85,000 pounds, a substantial increase over last year's clip, and the
oilier associations will also havc increases of twenty-five per cent, over
last year.
In Saskatchewan ami Manitoba,
^herc the larger part of the wool is
graded and sold for the farmer by
branches of lhc .department of agriculture, there will also be a larger
quantity available. In thc former
province, the growth of the .industry
is evidenced by the fact that nearl3'
double as much wool as last year
will be sold this ycar. in Manitoba
the increase, though not so great as
that of Saskatchewan, will be a substantial one, and the total clip will
amount to more than Uventy-hvc per
cent,  greater than  last year.

Work Among

Average Indian Child Possesses Considerable Natural Ability

so_ ably superintended by her sister,
Miss Tena Bruce,
A majority of the children, when
admitted into the school*'posses no
knowledge of thc linglish language,
as native dialect ia in constant usage
within the homes. Occasionally a
new pupil is cofitiizant of the meanings of simple Knglish words, which
havc presumably been used by some
member of thc family, by whom a
few years at the Indian school at
Portage la Prairie or F.lkhorn may-
have been spent. But Indian children quickly learn the English ..tongue, nnd soon compiehend thc duties

An average young Indian is a child
of ability, yet with certain studies of
which arithmetic may be citrd as example, a little-difficulty is experienced. Thc art of penmanship is apparently a natural gift to the pupils;
in "crayon work, thc juvenile Indian
is an artist of no mean .skill. The
girls are of au unusually quiet disposition;" when spoken to lliey appear adverse to any conversation. -It
is customary to devote one hour of
each morning to study of the Bible-
a feature of utmost importance to the
Indian. The children are. given drill
exercises weekly, aud attend the Mission House to receive inM ruction in
various matters of domestic character.
The work accomplished by Miss
Bruce requires no blare of trumpets.
That task is heralding its own story
in the character of young li.ves now

Providing for the -
Growing-up Family
Several Large Tracts  of Land Sold
to Communities
One of lhe many reasons that are
inducing fanners from old-sctlled
districts to take up land in Western
Canada is the desire to provide for
their families now growing up.
Where they have been farming, land
is too costly to be seemed for the
young folks; but, being able to sell
their farms at prices ranging from
$150 au acre upwards, these farmers
arc in a position to secure more extensive holdings in the fertile prairie provinces of Western Cauada,
thus making adequate provision for
thc needs of their families without
any additional  investment of capital.
just recently several large tracts
of land have been sold to communities that wish to form settlements of
their own. In central Saskatchewan
the Christian Community of Universal Mrothcrhood have purchased 10,-
16j acres of fertile land at $25 an
acre. Many members who left this
province three years ago are now returning, having satisfied themselves
that they cannot do better than btay
on  the  prairie lands.
Another tract in Saskatchewan that
has just been purchased for settlement comprises 15,000 acres. Tho
price at which this land has bcert
secured has not been made known.
This land is specially suited fof
dairying and diversilicd~f:irming, and
it is .understood that farmers of
Minnesota. Wisconsin and llinois
arc interested in it.
Near Lethbridge, Alberta, a 1700-
acrc farm has just been sold to A

Democracy and
'���American Schools
Only 8 I*er Cent, of. the    Germans
Are Admitted to the Higher
The reason why German education, which has often been described
as tm^most successful system of education in the world, has left the
German nation without ariibition or
initiative in public matters is fully
set forth in the latest addition to the
University of Chicago war papers, by
Director Charles Hubbard Judd, of
the .School of Education. The fact is
that only 8 per cent, of the Germans
are admitted to the higher schools.
The great masses of the people are
given a very limited eight-year
course in the common school and
are then sent out into the trades
without the possibility of entering
any of the higher schools and ac-.
cordingly wi'tharft the possibility of
entering any of the higher callings.
The boy who goes to the common
school can never be a doctor, or a
lawyer, or an officer in the army.
In America, and to a less degree
in democratic England, the sharp division between the higher schools
and the common schools has been
overcome, especially in thc last half-
century. In England pupils may
transfer from thc common school to
the higher school by passing examinations. In the United States and
Canada the high school is open to
everyone who has completed the
work of the common school.
The American system of education
owes its present form to the fact that
in the American colonies there was
no aristocracy distinct from the common people. There could not develop in this country two distinct
schools such as Germany has, because all the people had common interests and their children all belonged equally to the one democratic
Thc American school is a continuous, free school, open alike ��� to boys
and girls. Perhaps the fact that
girls have been given a higher education in this country is one of the
clearest evidences that the colonists
were democratic in their beliefs and
institutions. Europe has been very
slow to admit, girls to higher education. It was American women who
first broke into the German universities. Even today girls and _ women
have only limited opportunities of
education in public institutions of
higher learning in Germany.

Regarding the Crow
Useful    Qualities   Overbalances    Its
Objectionable Traits
A bill of_ indictment stands against
the crow, its charge sheet marked
with divers'offences for which a plea
of guilt in some instances cannot be
avoided. Concerning certain of the
alleged crimes, evidence in rebuttal
of the crow's misdemeanors may bc
The crow; '' Canada West's first
springtime feathered visitor, is a
member of the carrion species of that
numerous family. A British ballad
of early century authorship, describes
the crow as a traitor towards the
���smaller denizens of the air. The claim
is made that a crow's epicurean propensity demands toll of the barn
yard chickens and eggs, together
with much prairie chicken, partridge
a��d wild duck. Is it not possible thc
weasel is responsible for more damage among .the nests than is accorded that blood-thirsty animal? The
rat is not without guilt in this respect, also. Another and most capable thief is thc skunk, which can
devour more hen eggs during a single night than a crow could demolish
Germany's Labor Army
German   Military   Authorities     Lay
Stress on Value of Their
"Our growing labor army," is the
description applied by thc Huns tb
their prisoners of war. According
to a communique in the latest. Berlin papers, Germany and her vassals
between them now hold 3,575,000
prisoners, For the first time the German military authorities lay stress on
the supreme valtf6 of their prisoners
as man-power for industry and agriculture. They arc so numerous, it is
asserted, that they . go far toward
compensating Germany for the men
she has had to withdraw from peaceful pursuits for active military service. "The longer the"war lasts," thc
communique adds, "the more adaptable these prisoners become to the
work assigned them, and the more
useful to ns."
Huns have a majestic awe of big
figures. Thus it is explained for
their edification that the "labor
army" in prisoner camps is numerically greater than the whole male
working-class population of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden combined, "and is equivalent to one-fifth
the total number of working men Jn
Germany before the  war."

Enemy Promised
Great Plunder
Rich Countryside Held Up as  Compensation for Hardships
Plunder of Paris and loot from the
rich countryside were some of the
promises made to the German soldiers by the high command before
the offensive of June 9, according lo I
an official  despatch from France.       j
A German deserter related ��� how ���
the officers during the rest which |
preceded the. attack- painted in glow-,
ing colors the advantage of an advance in a rich country where the
men could live in abundance and recompense themselves for their hardships. Hc said measures'were taken
to guarantee and apportion the plunder, but soldier were warned that
there 'was to be no renewal among
the guards of the ;; regrettable; incidents of;7 v'Ville'rs-Brctonneiix, where
the valiant guards of this division,
breaking into the cellars, became so
intoxicated that tl. - refused to follow their oflicers. Before . the attacks the commander of the    guards

them, and it will take them a long,

then, is absurd.
"Yes, it's as absurd as the urchin
who was started off for school at
the age of seven, and on arriving
home at the end of the first day seized a news; per eagerly and turned to

"The urchin studied lhe comic
page intently, then lie tossed it down
and said in a disgusted voice:

Waves of Thought       i
Editor, Tin-: Leuok,
Gkkicnwood, 15.C.
Dear Sir:���Will you kindly permit a
few words of comment on an item in yonr
issue of August 15, the writer of which,
after enumerating a number of diseases
from which General Vou lliudenburg is
reported to have suffered, concluded:
"He should try Christian Science, and
just think thai he is in Paris."
The intended wit of the paragraph was
lost, in that it fell wide of the mark.
Christian Science does not teach that
mortals can change their conditions
simply by thinking they are changed.
Ou the other hand, one could not be
aware of any condition, either as good or
bad, apart from mental cognizance.
In his epistle to the Galatians, St.
Paul classifies the right and wrong
thoughts of men as spiritual aud material; but neither the Scriptures or Christian .Science teach that a man can make
himself good simply by thinking that he
is good, nor that one can become healthy
by just thinking that hc is healthy.
Such au assumption i.s the antipode of
Christian Science, which teaches thrit
human experience can be permanently
improved only by the regeneration ol the
human consciousness; and this is a process lhat calls fur vastly more than the
exercise of human will. It means the renunciation of evil, and the adoption of
good as the basis of thought and life.
Victoria, August 21.
[ICvidently the humor of the Hindenburg item was partly lost upon Mr.
Greenwood. We agree with him when
he says that a man cannot make himself
good or healthy by just thinking that he
is "g����d or healthy. Without action
thought availelh little. Evil is merely
too much or too little of anything. It is
excess or starvation that causes all our
troubles. Some people even have too
much Christian Science, and others not
enough. Too much art, age, war, food,
music, drink money, poetry, religion,
etc. etc. makes degenerates of us all.
Too little has about the same effect, so
keep in the middle road of moderation,
be happy, and live iu one sphere at a
time. Painting pictures ol an unknown
future, from the myths of the past, with
the brush of superstition, has camouflaged
the world for centuries with, a mental
barrage. Be good but do not find fault
with the chap who is mushing along a
different trail to the New Jerusalem.
Although Christian Science was founded by a great egotist, and all great
egotists are said to be insane, we admire
its optimistic teachings. It believes iu
the good aud hands you love, life and
truth in sweet packages, devoid of awe,
pomp, hell, brimstone and ceremony so
strikingh- e.videut iu the old-line
churches. It is a new, short, and sugar-
paved road to heaven, and that is why,
in this age of speed, so many pilgrims
are docking to ils temples. However,
we once asked a prominent Scientist
what lie thought about his church, especially its healing department. "Finest in
the world, Colonel; but don't make yourself a damn fool over it."���Ed. Ledge.]
Bv reading a dramatic paper we
notice.that the.Germs have not yet

Our Friend Jimmy
Jimmy Copland was in town last
Friday,   his  first  visit   for   many
moons.    A year ago  he  fell down
the  embankment   near his  home,
and laid there all  night  being unable   to   reach   his  cabin until  a
passer-bj' noticed him iu the morning. His thigh was injured and he
was confined to bed for a long timp,
and   lost   20   pounds   iu   weight.
This summer he has washed   some
gold out of a fork of  Rock  Creek,
besides staking a  chromite  claim.
Jimmy will be SO years old next 4th
of July, and has had a varied aud
romantic    career.      When     quite
youug  he   placered   in   Calaveras
county, California, about  GO miles
from  Stockton.    He  sold  a good
claim tor a few dollars, and joined
the   rush   to  the  Fraser   river in
1858.    He mined at Hill's Bar for
a time and then pushed on to Rock
Creek  in 1SC0   with   GOO   others.
After that   Barkerville,   Big Bend,
Cassiar, Omineca aud other golden
spots in the west.    Jimmy  is one
of the few survivors of the baud of
red-blooded   trail   blazers   of   GO
years ago.    He says  that  he  will
never die, but expects to gradually
dry up until he is light  enough to
jump into ethereal  space and help
the angels   rock   golden sunshine
out   of   tho   clouds.     Good   boy,
Jimmy! But when yoa  reach that
camp   where   the    rocks   are   all
diamonds, the atmospl ere all sunshine, the sounds all music and the
scenery   all   flowers   be  sure and
stake a full claim  for  the  Colonel
in  the  middle  of  the  angel belt,
with plenty of room for extensions.

To "Keep'Out the Flies
Any odor pleasing to man is
offensive to the fly and vice versa,
and will drive them away.
Take five cents' worth of oil of
lavender, mix it with the same
quantity of water, put it in a common glass, atomizer and spray it
around the rooms where flies are.
In the dining room spray it lavishly even on the. table linen.; The
odor is . very disagreeable to flies
but refreshing to most people.
Geranium, : mignonette, heliotrope and white clover are offensive to flies. They especially dislike the odor of. honeysuckle and
hop blossoms.
According to a French scientist
flies have7 intense hatred for the
color blue. Rooms decorated iu
blue will help to keep out the flies.
To clear the house of flies, burn
pyrethrum powder. This stupefies
the flics, but they must be swept
up and burned.
Cheating Going* On
Courteous Wild Beasts
On reading in the Sun that German newspapers* are indignant because American soldiers are using
shotguns, I was reminded of a
"card-shark" in Leadville in '79.
He had held out a big hand for a
killing and had it ttuck in the top
of his boot. Finally he got his
bank roll into a big pot and reach^
ed for his holdout to switch in, bub
found it gone. ''Hold on!" he
yelled. UI ain't going to playin
this game���t-here'o cheating going
on."���E. J. Riggs, New York Sun.
Worth Waiting For
"Alas! I have nothing to live
for now!'' wailed the reacted lover.
'���Oh, pshaw!"' returned tlie practical maiden. "Better stick around
i until the kaiser is hanged."
Just as one dog will respect another dog's bone, so even the
fiercest wild beasts have their on-
written laws and their little conventions.
One common idea which has
found its way into thousands of
books of adventure is that the lion
and tiger take advantage of the insistent call of fehirsfe to get a supper. That is to Bay, they go down
to the water-pool, fehe only one for
miles around, take a good drink
themselves, aud then lie in wait
for some gazelle or giraffe or ibex
coming there for a like purpose, in
order to spring upon the poor
creature whilst in the act of drinking aud making a meal of it.
Yet this is a libelous estimate of
wild beast character. The fact is
that there is a sort of truce afe
the water-hole in jungle and forest.
As far as killing is concerned, the
drinking place is out of bounds.
There is an invisible notice-board
on its banks which says: "Live
and Let Live,'' and is implicitly
There is an order of precedence.
The. rhinocerous gets first drink.
He is the king of the forest jungle.
Then comes the elephant. When
he has lowered the tide-mark and
made tho water more like coffee
than anything else, the big pussycats stroll down to quench their
ardent tongues���-bhe lions, thejeo-
pards, the tigerfl, the jaguars and
Meanwhile the shy animals, the
giraffes, deer, springboks, and
even the buffaloes, although fehey
are a match for a lion, stand in the
background and wait till the car-
ii iv'ora have done. But the latter
itever prevent their approach to the
water or waylay them on their retirement. And that is better manners���aye, and better morals��� than
many men show.

The editor of American Magazine
asked Private Peat one day to tell
him fehe most tender, gentle thing
he ever knew a soldier to do. He
answered: "After fehe first gas
attack at Ypres, in April 1915, I
was knocked oufe for a while and
was in the clearing station afe Melville. One day as I was lying fehere
on a stretcher a poor, miserable
soldier came in. He wae covered
with mud and blood. He was
minus his overcoat and his tunic
was torn by shrapnel. He was
3oaked to the bone, for ife was raining, and ho was shivering wifeh
cold and pain. The nurse hurried
to him and asked what had become
of his overcoat. 'Oh! he said, his
teeth chattering, 'my pal was tilled
back there, and he looked so cold,
lying there in tho rain, I took off
my coat and put it over him."
