Mr. Lucien Cannon, tho Liberal candidate in Dorchester, interviewed with regard to the result of Saturday's election, appeared to be trying to tkke his defeat philosophically. "1 ran against iWr.

"I thought he was not tit to sit in the Dominion Cabinet during war time. , "In my campaign I adhered strictly to the Liberal policy of my leader as regards war questions. I declared myself decidedly in favor of Canada participating in the war. As to the -N'ational Service. I told the electors that I had signed my card and advi'S ed them to do the same, and added tliat if it did not mean eventual con scription I had no objection to the scheme. I do not believe we shall need conscription h?re. "To show how little I appealed to prejudice or passion; 1 may say I did not mention the bi:lingual question in a single speech.

The probability is that they made the  journey at 50 or 60 miles an lio.ur, with stop-overs at convenient points. The flock which left Miner's on Dec. 14 had experienced guides, for it contained the famous black duck, Delilah, which was tagged in 1912, and has returned every season since, and several birds Ugged in 1913. Mr. Miner labelled 54 in 1916 and 63 this year. Only 20 of the tagged birds visited him this last season. The Miner farm was visited by 52 wild geese this fall.

Dear Fred: l/receiwd your letter dated Dec.-Ipthja'few days ago, anjd T^as surpris^'but more than pleaseid ;to,hear from you again.. I have heard frbm-none'of theobpys for. a long tinie now. .1 came, to'.tfiis licj)ital,bn Nov. 11th and was'gla'd to "get over to Bag-land believe me. I.-was wounded, .on Noy. .fith while in ch&fgiBrbf a;^atigue p^rty just be-h'ind'the front line. We ^wei'ej unloading some trenc^ mateflal off .the Ecginefep wago'iis whe.-r- it ;hairpenea. It was a bright moonlight night and I do not know whether "Fritz" could see UB, or heard the- wagons, but ahy-how "he opened up'hiis machine gun at us. .'The first time he was. shooting high over our heads. We could hear tiie.; bullets goiSg, whistling. over but paid no attentioh'to iit as one gets so used* to hearirig them that you don:t bother much. He latter lowered his range or else turned on another gun, but anyhoiv be had- tlie range down to perfection. 1 can never figure out how ,be misse'dthe rest of tlie boys biitr wis the'only'one that was lilt. I was Incljy in only getting one bullet, it hit me about the middle ot the right groin "and went down "through and stopped .underneath the skin at the back of my leg. I was so surprised at first that I dida't know I was hit by a bullet at all. I thought somebody^had Hung a stone or think the bullet must have struck one of the cords leading down to ijiy toes as the too ne.\t to my big one is getting pulled down under. A.nd if it goes much farther it will mean an operation so we will hope it doesn't come off. Fred yo.u wanted me to tell you some of my experiences' but it would make too b;g a letter. I think I will leave all that until I get back and then I will sit down and talk yout am off.' , . The Somme .was one continual round of Hell believe me. We had some close shaves there. X was with the bunch that maile the advance from Foziers to- Oourceliette. Fritz vv'ould show no fight at ail when you got to close quarters. He would drop his rifia .and onuipment and come out to meet you with his hands ,up. There T,'as a lot of them I think waiting to be taken as when we got to their trench they had no equip-pient on and some had loaves of bread under their arms so they would be sure of something to eat. They seemed to be v/ell provided because their du.gonts were full of food. All kinds of cigars and cigarettes and the cigars in boxes of fifteen at that. Not just a few lone ones. In some of the dugouts they had all kinds of wins and whiskies. I suppose it would be the official q.uarters. We had the "tanks" over with us on that day. It was tlip first time they were, used I. believe. ' It was sure surprise tq. Frit-/, believe me. Itonest moUiod to defeat me. I" sorry that some electors were carried bv those means.'

No difference how dull, faded, brittle and scraggy, just moisten a cloth with Danderine and carefully draw it through your hair, taking one small strand at a time. The effect is amazing-your hair will be light, fluffy and wayy, and have an appearance of hbun dance; an incomparable lustre, soft-Kess and luxuriance. -Get a 25-cent bottle of Knowlton's Danderine from any drug store or toilet counter, and prove that your hair la as pretty and soft as any-that it has been neglected or injured by careless treatment-that's all-you surely can have beautiful hair and lots of it If you will Just try a little Danderine.

So I sat down on a pile of lumber and waited for a stretcher wliich was soon on the job and the boys carried me to the dress- bombs but they might as well have tried to blow a safe with a fire^ cracker.

Three of -Them Shot Near MiJbile Three Days After They Left Jack Miner's Sanctuary - (St. Thomas Times) Jack Miner, -who,, maintains famous sanctuary ;ior. wild geesf; and ducks near Kingsville, Ont., rept,i;ls^ a remarliablo flight of black and rr-j.1-lard ducRK. Fdv ySffifg'he has attracted these.^birds .to J3,onds an hi.s farm by provliiing food ^fpr them as tl'.ey pass to and fro oh^'their aniiun! migrations. The ducks he decoya into a shed, tags the:u. with' alim'uam bands and' sets theiii free again.'. On Dec. 14 last, in the eypning, 42'ducks, warned doubtlessly instinct oi'ihp approaching cold Weather, rose fftm the ponds and resumed their. long journey southward.^ They were fat, in good condition, fit indeed for "the big jump" acrdss the United States. On (he radt-nlng of'the third day, Dec. 17, tliree. OjE these ducks were shot In the Big Bateau, near Mobile,' Alabama^ by Dr.' S. C. Frederick of that city. The bands on their legs bore the post 'office address "Box 48, kingsville, Ont." The reverse side of the'first band read: "God Loveth a Cheerful Giver." The second carried the message: "It is more blessed to give Mian to receive." The tliird was' blank. It may be explained that Mr. Miner, vho is a deeply religious niaa as well as a gentle naturalist, has .a passion for the adaptation of Scripture texts to all possible occasions. The flock from which Dr. Frederick made his'bag of three included'12 or 14 birds out of the 42 that had left Kingsville less than three day's-- pre-: viousiy. ' � The distance between Kingsville and Jlobile is 1,400 or l,.50O miles if the voyage was made in a-straight line, ana the birds may have been-in the Big Bateau several hours or even half a day before they fell to the sportsman's gun.

They are the men, who,-ln,the face of great difficufties and � terrible dangers successfully fought for ,uB, and won, by sheer grit, the master>-"ot th^r seas; Na.turally I this, was . followed by conquest after conquest on land, thus : gradually bringing into being the British Elm- nlre. as we know it toda?." ... . . Now, the men. who dld.^ all this teer Reserve, for service were not super-human, far from iit. They were drawn from plain every day people,' aucb ais one Is accustomed to converBei with - any day. Tfbung men often imagliie service in \t'he navy to be something especially trying atid' difficult. It is not so. Any young fellow with average brains can and would make good after a normal period or training. Once having tasted the romance of aea lite, he would never give up his interest in its varied occuptitions. Now. ttie point is this. Many of us consider that, ho, matter what, is happening on tlie sea, It must "be quite alright because the British na'vy is on the job. This is a' charming compliment to our fleet, but Has it ever occurred to you thiat ships cannot be worked without men. The expansion of our navy has been' so enormaus during this present war, thatJ th6 ai4miralty resourceii ape taxed to the Uttermost in the effort to obtain' enough men; That dan-" gerous feeling, that the navy is sufficient unto itself,.has been the cause of much anxiety in Its felation to the task of sfecuring recruits, 't'o'ung men, make no mistake. By not joining the � navy yoti are playing with fate. Our armies may swell to tnany millions but alt th^'armies on earth would avail us'nothing were bur fleet' to meet disaster; '0,ur navy is strong" ' you say. iSranted, butsfrave it, give it insufficient suipi�lles of men what then? Let all who' can take heed by this. Cbme, forward and offer yourself fbr service ii^ tlie fleet. If .you lack experl.ence, don't let that stop you. There are many things you can do as effflciehtly as a trained seaman. 'Hecriiits are ndw being asked for, .by tlie Royal Naval Canadiaij Volunteer Reaervfe.'for'service oi} Canadlani coast patrols.
