We sailed on Aug._ 13. 1 was the thirteenth man in my section, in the thirteenth platoon, and to crown all, we were with the 13th Brigade. After our arrival at Havre we were sei t up country at once and got into fighting on Aug. 22nd at St. Ghilzain. It was after day of hard trench digging that the Germans came and opened fire from a wood not more than 500 yards off. Two companies went forward with bayonet by rushes of twenty to thirty yards in the face of a murderous fire.Captain Kennedy was at our hewd, with uplifted sword arm, encouraging us with cries of 'follow me boy!. He received six wounds in his arm, which hung paralized at his side when he collapsed fr m exhaustiou. "Then Major Leigh took command, and he too fell. Two men rushed to his assistance, but he I waved them away, saying 'Never • mind me, go on!" After that artillery arrived, opened fife on the | wood, set it ablaze, and forced the Germans to retire. "From the trenches we kept firing away at the Germans. Each hot costs the Government 1 Jd„ and you may be sure we didn't want to waste any. We were glad to pick off the Germans at that price.

Dear Sir,
The general indifference to things
vital seems In have reached the
limit, even among those who
should be most interest ;d. The
business of Nassau is about as bad
as il can be, vet we h-jar iif no sug-
gestion to help matters, except
giumbling, and I'm quite sure that
wiil never have the desired effect.
Yet the Government continues to
collect taxes and hoard up the
money, ir.stead of spending it to the
advantage of itself, and tne public
in general. A few thousand pounds
distiibuted among the working
class for public works would cer-
tainly be a toon to theColony. I am
of the opinion that this would be
a good idea even if the Government
have to do work that is not neces-
sary. This will be far better than
distributing it later on free gratis
which I am quite sure they will
have to do. Besides it will have
the desired effect of stopping men
from going off to look for work.
I understand the speaker has call-
ed a meeting of the House for to-
morrow afternoon for the purpose
of voting a sum to help the mother
country. This may be a lauadblc
move, yet let us not forget in our
loyalty, those in this Colony who
must certainly starve unless some
work is found for them to do I
think it high time to wake up and
face the situation.
Respectfully Yours
A MERCHANT
HEROISM IN MID-AIR.
How brave Artificer eaved Cra.lt
from deetruotlon
One of the most thrilling feats of
heroism yet accomplished in the
war stands to the name of a British
aviator. While an airship of the
Royal Naval Wing was returning
from scouting operations, in a re-
gion which cannot be indicated, a
propeller broke, and, crumpling up,
dashed against the envelope. It
was al once feared that all was
over. But by a miracle the steel
propeller did not break the enve-
lope, although it shook the ship
from stem to stearn, throwing the
crew to the floor of their cabin.
But no sooner were the cre%v clear
of 0De disaster than a worse one
seemed imminent. For the ship
was carried by a strong wind to-
wards German territory. Seeing
that the only hope was to affix
another propeller, an engine room
artificer found a spare one, and
there-2,500 ft. in the air Iclam-
bered along the ajin. thick start
chion and calmly set to work to fix
the new blades, with piacticalty
no hold, seated on a "gas pipe,
15ft. from the cabin, this brave
fellow worked for two and a half
hours, not leaving his job until he
had made certain of the soundness
of his work. But the strain was
terrific, and on returning to the
cabin he almost collapsed in the
arms of his cheering comrades It
is understood that for his brave
conduct he has been recommended
for promotion at the earliest date.
