There are still a good number of young men presenting themselves for enlistment. In addition to those enlisted there are others who are availing themselves of the opportunity of drilling which the Commandant lias been good enough 10 allow. Young ones, old ones, f.it ones, thin ours, those who are obvious ly physically fit, and some who look as though there may be doubts on that score; they may all be seen, k< en as mustard, doing their bit; and if you listen carefully some stiil moonlight night you will gather that their lungs are in good si ape by their lusty announcing of the fact that they are "off to the Front." —:o: — We understand that the law allows p'^eon shooting only certain months through out the year, an 1 although this is not the time, shooting parties are going and coining without being disturb ed.

Coals of Fire."
"IF that crossed-eyed Servant
I of yours doesn't turn up
pretty quick with that cake I
shall make linn sit on the pa-
rapet while 1 throw bombs at
him in case the Boche misses
him," said my company coin
mander, in his delightful early
morning manner.
"There won't be much of him
to throw bombs at," I replied,
"if he strolls down Willow
Road in ten minutes' time.
There's a Belie 'Machine Gun'
f does a morning hate on Sui
cide Corner, as leon as it's light,,
with Teutonic precision."
At this moment the object of
our remarks appeared in sight
about fifty yards down Willow
Road,which leadsstraight back
from the front line parapets. It
is a part of the line too water
logged at any time of the year
to dig down more than a foot
so parapets take the place of
of trenches. It was unpleasant
ly 'tear that my servant bore
no c<;ke, and his general ap
peanut's was, if possible, more
damp, depressed, and muddy
than our own.
I squelched along towards
him that I might at least hear
his tale before n;\ company
commander swallowed him
whole. It was a sad tale . .
"An' when I gets to the corner
by Welsh Chapel one o' them
water carts comes round the
corner sir at a'and-gallopon the
wrong side, bein' late in mov-
ing back before it's light, and
knocks me into that blasted
stream, beggin' your pardon,
sir. an" the cake an' the cigars
jn' the tin <>' peaches, wot the
'Tless Sergeant got in Ret boon
an' six candles an' them French
papers vou told me to Ret is all
at the bottoiii of the diich."
Thh was I ha appropriate open
illg f'T what proved a thorough
ly" unpleasant day. It would
have been a Monday at home
or a Friday and the i j'.h but be
ing at the Front it was Sunday.
Sunday is generally bloodly at
the Front. 1 speak "at the foot
, of the letter,'" as our Allies here
say, for if the Boche is out for
a "super strafe" he waits for a
Sunday presumably on the
theory that the better the day
the better the "strafe."
Whether or not the Hun had
been irritated by our little
bombing party, which bad car-
ried out an eminently successful
night attack on one of their
sap beads two nights before, or
whether he quite justifiably
suspected us of harbouring an
U. L. officer and mining party
in our sector, remains a doubt
ful point. In any case he gave
us a fine exhibition of artillery
practice between eleven and
twelve and, when we had re
built a couple of gaps in our
parapet, he did it again from
three to four. The expenditure
of ammunition was not very ef
fective from the point of view
pro lucing casualties, but it
looked very impressive and no
doubt soothed his feelings.
This type of local bombardment
is a curious product of modern
trench warfare, and it is dis
tinctly trying to the nerves. One
sits as close to the parapet as
one can, while heavy high ex
plosives of varying sizes thud
in groups of 4 just short or just
over, very occasionally, right on
the parapet. Gusts of shrapnel
burst 20 to fifty feet overhead ;
fizz bants whizz just over your
head like coveys of partridges;
and all the time you can see
men of another battalion just
beyond the point where Willow
Road marks one end of the
choten sector enjoying a com
paratively peaceful Sundav in
pleasant Spring sunshine, which,
is half hidden from you by the
smoke and flying clods from
bursting shells.
Did 1 say pleasant spring sun-
shine ? Well, I ceitainlygot the
impression between eleven and
twelve, and it recurred to my
mind again between three and
four, that it was quite a nice
day for everyone not in our sec
tor, but the Uochc batteries had
barely eased off for their after-
noon coflee and bauin-kuchen
or whathever their Government
issue corresponding to biscuits
and plum jam, when it began
to rain again in that slow,
steady, hopeless, endless way
that it always seems to rain in
Flandeis and the North of
France.
The officers of "A" Company
N'th Battalion, the London Re-
giment, were irot quite in their
best form when three of us fore-
gathered about six o'clock in
that eminently desiiable but
leaky freehold residence that
went by imposing name of Com
pany Headquarters, and was as
a fact across between a dugout
and a shanty. We had set our
house in order for the second
time that day, and were tired
and cross. The Babe went fast
asleep after consuming his share
of the half cooked bacon
and the pea oup sort of tea that
my still penitent batman had
produced while we had been
rebuilding the parapet and ev
acun ting the dozen or so casual
ties. The latter had not been
possible while Willow HohA
was under heavy shell fne.
The company commander
was the only one of us who still
felt full of energy, and my rath
er desluiory conversatit u with
him lapsed into a m< nologue
very soon, especially as he till w
ed signs of getting on to his fa
vourite subject of Con
SCriptjon. "I shouldn't mind
this sort of thing so much," he
said, referring to the day's fright
fulness "if I didn't know there

The tramp of marching feet
is still to be heard although
it is only a few days since
ur last diafts left here.
There are still a good num-
ber of young men presenting
themselves for enlistment. In
addition to those enlisted
there are others who are
availing themselves of the
opportunity of drilling which
the Commandant lias been
good enough 10 allow. Young
ones, old ones, f.it ones, thin
ours, those who are obvious
ly physically fit, and some
who look as though there
may be doubts on that score;
they may all be seen, k< en as
mustard, doing their bit; and
if you listen carefully some
stiil moonlight night you
will gather that their lungs
are in good si ape by their
lusty announcing of the fact
that they are "off to the
Front."

We understand that the
law allows p'^eon shooting

I Sir,
And pray what have you
to say about it : Areyi malive
to the fact that there is a se
rious epidemic in New York
emperiling the lives of the
future hope of the Republic,
and may reach our sh nes, il
strong measures are n< >t taken
to enforce strict quarantine
against American Ports?
1 suppose since the Guar
dian has set the pace, y u
will quickly fall into line.
My dear Sir, I would like to
you take the initiative for
at the h-ast, once in youj life.
1 > Mi't let your contemporaiy
bf your pioneer all the time.
It would be amusing, if it
were not serious, to note the
increased of Megalomania in
I ertain sections, taking the
form of delusion in t he beliel
of its victims that they and
they only are the true and 011
giual oracles. By my hali
d< 'in! the oracle at Dephi, at
Miletus, ArgOS, Zeus, and Ju
piter Ammon must all hide
themselves befoie the 2olh
century deity. "Si rong an
an s" to enforce Quarantine!
l'orsoot h I Did or did not, or
II is not the Governor already
done so. Is Q in 'Hi 1 ine not
strong enough?"! )l rVise men,
judge Drag you away
From your "Club," your
"Bridge," and deport you to
.Ailed Island Quarantine Sta
tion, and you'll jolly s
say, whether or not, strong
measun s are taken to keep
out Infantile 1', rah is.
It is such chicken he 11 ted
petitioners as those r. ferred
c> who produce panics Rein
to the article referred to by
your respected contemporary
on Infantile Paralysis, from
"Ihe Outlook". Cut it out,
paste it up before \ OUI "look
outs" and assimilate every
word with your f >
three times a day, and for
your comfort and peace of
mind, you'll realize that you
were fright* n< d bj a shadow.
riiere are far woi- ases
than Infantile Paralysis pre
valent in this City t .1 y;
"the pestilence that walketll j
in darkness; the destruction'
that w.'islethat noa^wy." Is
anything doing ?
Mr. I' ditor I do not blame
the petitioners, poor chaps,
1 use, they do not read,
lhej ONLY HEAR, what is
said, but in the face, of the
I, 1 that a Quarantine was
estab bvaGov.froclamation
a week ago, and published in
the oliic lal 1 )i gan, and that
organ the Guardian; makes it
hard to und< island how that
your contemporary should be

aim; it might be termed

as he pointed out there is still a
widespread slavery existing to-

brings on himself. I.et us then

Mr. Thompson urged the ne

ilages and responsibilities as
fieed -men.
The Rev. P. Bailey the last
speaker spoke briefly of the
highest form of slavery, the man
who was "----------------------" a
Slave of Christ.
The whole meeting was ex-
tremely helpful and encourag
ing and one left with a Vision
of new ideals and with new
hopes.
