And yet hor task, as like as not, Ib infinitely less exciting. No hero's oyea look Into hers WItli almost uncontrolled emotion; No grateful patient e'er avors lie owes ills life to hor devotion. Hor debt to England has been paid III tasks that make a humbler showing As s'crubblng-glrl or kitchen-maid, Or any job that may bo going. nut though a slave to dull routine That leaves hor nightly faint and wqary. She carrlo's on, alert,' serene. And indefatigubly cheery, rfom morning light till set of sun. With never fame or pay accruing, She does tho thinga that must be done And UIgniflea them in the doing.  *> � � PERSONAL � Mrs. J. L.

The const has always been a popular resort for Lcthbridgo people in th-j Slimmer. Though Waterton Lakes, Banff, Klko and Proctor have been visited by a gieat mauy, tlie coastal cities have claimed the lion's share.

ME IN IN iUIARY POLICY London, Aug. IS.*-.\ marked cliange is taking place in Curman iniii-tary policy, says the military critic ot tho Times. He beliovci that during the allied victories ot tho last month "German strategy was clearly In ii transltorial stage from the 'ideas which Ludendorff began tlie Marcli offensive to ideas whose nature i.i not yet revealed and which only can \ be conjectured." i "Tho successful allied raids on the i Italian front," he  ('ontUuies, "are amples of the way these conjectures are Ijeing tested.
