CONINGSlti' DAWSON tells of visiting an American Red Cross hosiiital for children in l''raiice in the current issue of '^ooa..J^i>,usekeepins. Ho tolls of these small sufferers as follows: "Through villages swarming with troops and packed with ordnance we arrived at an old caserne, which had been converted into tlie chlUIren's hospital ot the district. It is in char.ijo of one ot the first of .'Vraerica's children's specialists. "Here are five hundred little jin-tie'nts.

Ability Rewarded J^ORD LEVERHULME is an onter-tainin.g speaker- 1-ately at a meeting' he was expatiating on the necessity of each man doing his very best, and said it was his belief that ability was bound to be recognized and get its due reward, whether in the field or factory. He then told ;i story c: a cannibal chilt who had "conveited" a missionary into an Irish stew. The repast evidently did not agree with the f chief, wlio had to leave the royal table rather hurriedly.

Shapes as a whole show a remarkable tendency toward these two styles. Foints there are in nhtmd-ancc, anywhere from one to five being nothing unusual at all.

There are, however, three good shades of brown that look very probable for the new .season- the red brown- the nigger brown, and the wood. Then the greys, navys and blacks will, no doubt, sup-Ply the other most iiopular need. "The unchildlike stoicism of these children is apiialling.

One had only three guests, others none anil one heretofore poiidar resort appeared closed. This season the two most popuhii features of the Lake of Bay., ap;iar to bo sweaters and returned soldiers, and 1 must say the two .-'.r;! closely related.

Of cour.4c. there are many r:yi.sons advanced for knitting sweaters, th ' main one hi in,,- lhat one just has lo have 'one and it Is cheaper lo knit than buy; besides what's the sweater '.vool manufactured foi; anyway'.' Naturally there are a number of severe ladies who condemn the pi-.-ictlcc most determinedly, but I doi.ljt If anyone of them can beat one record of a mother from  ant Ontario town who knit so many socks that the society found difficulty in keepin,; ho;-suppllcd with wool- .Can we ..ay she ncgleo'ts the bo.vs overseas becauF" she "is now-I'olaxing with the aid of! a lapful ot rose wool. The condemn-crs are, frequently those who knit neither socks nor swe;Ll.ers, so busy are they denouncing any suspicion of reinis.sness In real workers. There is no censure forthcoming from one quarter at any rate. Soldiers, considered losers by this new fashion, never utter a protest; for waste of time or waste ot wool, whichever^vou wl.ih, the result is so liewltching � the wounded laddie . just forgivoVi and takes it to heart. Ask any one ot those dear boys up there in iMuskoka, and there arc a lot of them, whether wcarln.q: the blue band, grold stripes for wounds, the red of the Original or blue -Service stripes, each and everyone falls for the gay sweater and the adoration that accoinpan>-les it.

While invalid soldiers and sweaters are the two most iiopular features of the resorts, food law.s that/ mai!o for conservation at the table are the best third. Tho food conservation laws are being conscientiously observed, but everyone seeniH to get .'ill ho wants.
