We have fought and still are fight, cause tnev have at heart.
my ,i, our fathers fought
before,
To pievent the German tyrants
from landing on out shore,
For we'll meet again to part no Emma W. Smith, Alice Wat-

But if from death and danger the
Lord my life does save,
We'll all live and love etch other

I'm going into action, now, so

And if I'm gone before you, well,
we have only once to die.
Farewell, the bugle's calling as it
oft has called before ;
I leave you in my Father's care, I
cannot now say more.
THE FETE
IN AID OF
The British Red Cross Fund
This fete held on Govern-
ment House grounds on
Thursday was an unqualified
success, the arrangement of
tin: garden was very attrac-

exhibited and sold were ex-
cellent specimens of local
handicraft, skill and taste.
The large attendance of
visitors and residents of all
classes must have been high'
ly gratifying to the promot-
ers and participants in the!
big enterprise, and equally
so must have been the result
to the benefit of the good
