There was an air of very real seriousness, but no damping* of. our spirits. For this we had been training, and we meant to see it through as only North country men can. There was no "Tipperary,"' no cheering crowds. It was all very quiet and orderly. To the ordinary observer it might .haye been just another of the many practice night attacks, we had so often made; but for those who. kne_w,,their men, there was underneath it ^.stern and solemn purpose, ^icft^was determined on death or victory. Unique Recital of Lord's Prayer , With twilight came iur deck and theirs made (practically 'one. It was therefore possible for me to reach about 1,000 men, for the der stroyer was also - crow'ded.. with troops. T passed the word along both decks that I wanted 'them all "t* join with me in saying "Our Father" at a certain fixed hour. I was very anxious about it until the actual moment came; one foolish joker may quite unmeaningly turn such a thing into ridicule. My fears were . quite unfounded, for as I called them to prayer a deep and solemn silence passed along both decks, and General and Colonel and officers and men of their own accord stood up and with bowed heads joined with me in saying our Lord's own prayer. Then a pause, followed by a short extempore prayer for pardon for the past and protection through all the dangers that awaited us, we commended our loved ones, our cause,> and:-ourselves into God's hands. And so we closed our little service with v. the noble words of the Aaronic Blessing. My heart was very full as we ended, for I have learned to love these rough, warm-hearted miner lads," and ;! knew quite, well that for many of them it was the last, time I should1 be privileged to give them God's Blessing. And then the darkness closed quietly round us. There was. no moon' and but few stars. In the >soujthern.-end of the Peninsula aroundi,Achi Bab'4 ^the attack had already commenced ; and the sound of the guns-cotWjbe Cciear-ly heard in the distance. ; Further along, at Anzac, the Turkish- position on the top of the cliffs was bein; bombarded by naval guns ; and as amongst them the whole c|iff seemed about to be consumed in the (lame and smoke. Then, as'we watched this raging battle as interested, spectators, we were reminded that we had our part to play.  Beyond Anzac there is1 a long stretch of sandy plain stretching in a north-westerly direction and terminating in a sharp rocky headland known as Nibinnesi Point. Our landing place was to be upon this plain, about a mile from the headland. Rising from this sandy plain there is a small hill of some 800 feet. ..It dominates not only the beach where we were to land, but the whole ol the low-lying land due north of it enclose ing Sulva Bay. We were told beforehand that the Turks were entrenched on this hill, but that we must attempt to surprise them and take the hill in silence, without firing a shot, at the point of the bayonet.' Landing Under Difficulties A whispered order from the destroyer's deck, and our own small crew atlvanert silently'' to untie us Irom 1m� fids. There is neither lioins not bustle; only the unmistakable thrpb of our own small oil engines announces the fact that . we have started on-our own upon our great adventure. They are thrilling moments, those lew minutes of our journey to the beach. At,: any moment a hail of bullets may greet us before we' even land. At last our round-nosed prow has touched the beach and our hinged gangway has been lowered ; and in an incredibly short time we have all landed in saiety and in silence on the beach. A whispered or-(dor, the companies form up in their proper order, bayonets are fixed, and we are all but ready to move, when crack-crack-crack crack-crack, a thousand little flashes of light all round ; and we know that we are after all not unexpected, and that the enemy are very close upon us. One had so often-heard that same crack of the rifles, either with blank ammunition on manoeuvres or with ball on the range, that it was hard to realize at first that there was any real danger. Instinctively we ducked, and then ran forward in a crouching position, ducked again, and again advanced.' But it was not long before wc realized that we were no longer playing at the war game, but that this was at last the real thing, war, bloody war, with all its sickening sordid horrors. It was still pitch dark, we could only just see the.men in our immediate vicinity ; to right and left of us and in the front came the ceaseless crack and flash of the enemy's rifles as they fired retreating ; around us on all -sides came the "psiss" and "ping" of the bullets as they struck the ground around us or hissed overhead. Even up to that point the whole thing seemed impersonal ; but now there were added the shrieks and groans of the wounded as �they fell all around. One feels so helpless, there seems so little one can do, so much to be done ; a clasp of the hand as the little wounds ' are hastily bandanged, a muttered prayer, a drink of water, and that is about all. Oh, the agony of it, as one by one you see the lads you have learned to love shattered and broken and covered with blood, or cold and still with the glaze of death already on their eyes. Then as we approach the crest of Lala Baba, there comes-an . added horror-the worst of all, the cry of "Allah ! Allah !" as the. poor wretches start to run or grovel on the ground and cry for-mercy, mingled with the hoarse shouts of our own men as the bayonet charge goes home, and the cheer of victory as the hill is won. At last the dawn comes- and the sun peeps up behind the range of hills that separate us from "the Narrows"; and we see at what cost our victory ,has been gained. On the very summit of the bill, with upturned face and with a quiet peaceful smile, shot through the neck, lies pur Colonel. A keen sportsman, a regular and devout communicant and a very gallant soldier, he died as he had lived and would have wished to die-doing his duty bravely to the last. And all around, either wounded or dead, lay the flower of the regiment, both officers and men. Of the 28 officers who went out, there are but 8 left who are not either killed or: wounded. The men suffered severely, but not in the same proportion as the officers, the strength still being over 600 out of 1,000. I will not harrow your., feelings with an attempt to picture what a modern battlefield looks like after such an action as this,:. it is ^indescribable, and leaves greatr gaping wounds upon one's heart.

Up to-the 'taking of the entrenchments on the hill, I was right in the firing line-there was nowhere else to go to ; to leave the Regiment was certain death from sniping, and so to follow with them was on the whole safer.-1 elected to go with the doctor and regimental stretcher-bearers, who would normally be behind WOMEN WHO ARE ALWAYS TIRED May Find Help Letter* in This 11* Swan Creek, Mich.-" I cannot speak too highly of your medicine.

Men of this class are splendid whilst they have a leader but helpless without one ; and so, quite early in the engagement;, I found themv all turning, to me for, orders and myself directing them and giving them .'instructions, rt was a difficult position to be in, as it was my own baptism of fire, and I was really in a fearful "funk," what with the darkness'and the fear of the unknown, and shrieks,: and the noise, and the bullets whistling.overhead. However, we pulled through somehow, even if we made a good many mistakes1. , With daylighj; came the necessity of moving to the Field Ambulance which had by this time been set up on the beach; But with the dawn came a battery ot the enemies', guns' into play, and they found the little "dug out" I had made for the wounded. Wc had to advance about- three-quarters of a mile across the open plain under their fire. There-was nothing else but to go forward, for' to remain meant certain death. It was perhaps the most nerve-racking experience of them all. No sooner had we started than four shrapnel shells burst right over us. Twelve times as we crossed that plain the same thing happened, and each time just over our heads or a little forward ; and each time we threw ourselves flat on the ground and escaped without a scratch. And so things went on until the afternoon of the next day when things slacked down a bit, and I was able to climb into a crevice in one of the cliffs on the side of the point remote from the. firing, and to fall asleep from sheer exhaustion. The next day, Sunday, having communicated myself from the Reserved Host,, which I carry with me, being greatly refreshed in body and soul, I went back to the battlefield of the previous day,, and for six hours was engaged' in burying the dead. That was perhaps the worst job of a.".. We have now thoroughly made good our position, and we are very hopeful of the issue. I am thoroughly well and in-the best of spirits. I find, that I have been enabled to.stand the awful sights: and smells "much better than I thought i; arid although at the moment of writing the. shells are bursting every few minutes within a few yards' radius, ahd snipers regard my red cross armlet as' an admirable target, yet my nerves lire as good as ever they were, and my heart is full of gratitude to Almighty God for His great and many mercies 'to rae.

If a canvass of'the'town was taken now, it would probably be found that the population is as large as it has ever been. There are only a few vacant houses^ and they will probably be occupied before winter comes. Houses are now occupied that have been vacant for over two years. O. A.

VALUE OF REFUSE Not many people realize the enormous wealth that: lies in what are known as by-products. Take sheep's, wool, for example. The graass and dirt which are washed out of it are full of potash and potash salts, and in the wool-scouring factories of France; and Belgium these by-products are extracted from the water in which the wool is washed, and produce prolits running into thousands pf pounds sterling. As for slaughter houses, they? arc perfect gold mines of wealth in the matter of by-products. Blood, bones, grease, horns, hair, everything is saved and transformed into thousands of useful articles by chemical and other rvocesses. Talking of goldmines, one of the most important of; ..'ha chemical by-products of the slaughter-house is employed in gold-mining. This is cyanide'of potassium, , which is used to take the gold out of ground quartz. ' . ' Lieut.-Colonel  Duncan Donald will command a new overseas battalion, the 148th Highlanders, Toronto.
