She told how it. takes courage to raise them from these depths, giving a few examples of their moral and physical sufferings; how milk can only be obtained through 4 doctor, how they have not tasted meat, or eggs for three years, how they are clothed in rags and have nothing but pieces of wood tied with strings to their feet. She told of how all girls of over 15 were taken to Germany and how many commit suicide rather than make with their own hands shells which would kill their loved ones, she gave examples of the bravery of the French women in the loss of their ' relatives and 1 told how the spirit of endurance and national unity is there even among the school children who in these devastated regions are still attending schools in cellars. Terrible Devastation. Ill one region alone there are 100,-000 destroyed homes and it is to give these people who have endured hideous tortures of mind- and body, a home, that Mine. Casgrain makes her appeal. She has already raised 30,-000 francs for these helpless people from Quebec and Ottawa and taken it to them, Nrow she is asking the whole Canadian people to help in the rebuilding of France, urging all the orders to combine and have some share. The French government, will build the houses and she is asking for aid in the equipment and furnishing of them. Only ?200 is required to furnish a home and the names of tho contributors,, whether a society or a private individual will be put on the houses us an act of remembrance. Mine. Casgrain "thinks that every I.O.D.K. should endeavor to do something in this line, for French soil must be sacred in Canada as so many Canadians lie there. Here is the chance to do something big and to make n direct personal gift, yestablishing a bond of union between the French and the Canadians. Mme. Casgrain then outlined a novel plan of campaign as a suggestion for j enlisting everyone for this worthy cause. This scheme is being adopted in the other cities in Canada. A brigade is to be established headed by a general who gives $10 trnd, who secures 10 colonels, each of whohV-gives $5. Then each colonel  secures; 100 captains each giving $2. The .captains get 100,0 lieutenants each-giving $1, and these in turn secure-10,000"-'privates' who each give ,25 cents... ..Tlius a brigade secures, a total amouijt.of $3760.
