Artillery into Mons is given in .a letter T^rltten by Bombardier . Tom Hansiltoi . to his purents, Mr., and Mrs.-W. 'A. Hamilton, on November-13, two days after thS armistice was � signed^ 'Hei-e are some excerpts' from his l-jtter; "This is the time '^e'-haiye looked forward to for a long time, and the evejils of the - past few" days, repay for vavfis of the tryin.? time? we have beei' through. Monday was the first dpy for some time that I really was glad to be in France. \ "Whtin we entered Mons rvfoiiday movning it was a sight That l~\rill remember .is long as 1 live Yhe city was aflame with banners, flowers'and bunting, the streets lined with'cheering civilians falling over themselves �to shake hands with.- or kiss! or pin Belgian colors on the passing soldiers. We had the honor of being the first complete battery, in Mons, and 1 Avas in charge of the second gun. My horse was hidden with flow-eifs and flags, while two pretty .girls guided him through the cheering crowd. We had our horse lines On one of the main streets, and were billeted in the civilian houses. The women were fighting because one had more soldiers staying in her house than .tn-other. The -old lady - where I stayed was so nappy she didn't know what to do. We were almost siok. from drinking coffee we did not w&nt,^ut couldn't refuse. It was the same all the way- up! As we advanced through the liberated towns our reception was certainly that of the conqueror. The day *e' fore the armistice.was signed we marched through a town just vacated by Fritz^ and my! how we were received. Just as we were really en joying ourselves and ,hadt decided while, if this war weren't over, it w-as a fine war ani'way, we were rather 'startled by tlijp swish, of machine gun bullets'followed by shells; and' -we "Uwoke to ttefact that we were only a few hunared yards from Fritz; in fact. In front of our own. infantry. Our ^t was -hasty, if- Undignified. Miraoulousiy no^ a man was scratched. Evidently his machine gunners were Lralher �ervous.," It was* oie. iScf the closest *ayes that I diav'e had, .^or 'Some'-^'.tiiue. = Now I am running our canteen; the best job 1 have: had since I joined the army. This is certainly the life for France, but the sooner they cain land *me iu "Canada the better." MAY IN W 11 Thatr,there, will'likely be some further investigation into the quostion of inilk prices in Lethbridge, owing to the continual criticism of the high, price from the public, is jiitimhted in a statement of Mayor Hafdio tnade in the presence of the - two other cOinmisslofttjrs. . The reason for the pt;oposal, is that information has come to the city indicating that producers in the . Lethbridge district are gat-tlnj^moKO out of their milk than those Jn dther duties where the price to the consumers' is the same as in Lethbridge.' *AkCcording to the figures available, th"e producers at Medicine Hat, Where feed scarcity is more aggravated than here, receive less for their milk than those "of Lethbridge, though milk retails at the same price to consumers IhVMedicine Hat as here. it is uiiderstood that local dealers are not entirely satisfied with conditions, and if an investigation Is held it, will likely bring together the producers, the retailers, the city commissioners and represeulatlves of the consuming public.
