The following letter has been received by The Herald from a member of the 113th Lethbrldge Highlanders: Just to inform you that the 17th Reserve which includes the remainder of the 113th, have been moved to Bramshott, where we arc absorbing two other units, but remain as tlio 17th Reserve just the same for reinforcement purposes. We arc just a few miles from Whitley camp, wiioro the 61st Battery and the 137th are lying, so shall have a chance of seeing Ted Faunch, Charlie Westlcy and otliers. We left a very clean camp, (excluding mud) to come to a very dirty one, although we are only lying here a day or two until our own area (about a mile awayj has a quarantine lifted. We Are temporarily quartered witli the 263rd and they have eight huts (about 250) quarantined for spinal meningitis. We are situated at the spot inhere three counties join; Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey, and the country around is alive with camps right througli the Aldershot districtf and Salisbury Plains. B.ut it cannot touch the pretty Kentish district we have left behind. However, it is not at all bad, and we will be satisfied. We can get used to anything after Sarcee, although there are many of us who would like to be there no\y. Our neighbors of Sarcee, the 138tli and the 194th are here too. . There is a persistent rumor that our whole battalion is taking over a base in France in the near future, but it may be only a rumor. We left, behind many non-coms o^ the 113th at Sandling, they are included in a draft. It does look like business at the front now, doesn't It? There are not many who do not think the summer will see the finish. Let's hope they are right. POPE WARNS KAISER AND THE EMPEROR OF AUSTRIA New York, Feb. -9,-The Sun this morning prints the following dispatch from Rome: "Pope Benedict has warned the Kaiser and the Emperor of Austria-Hungary that their decision to resort to submarine frightfulness is certain to alienate the sympathy of-neutrals, including himself."

For it our men have fought, hard and long, and, stronger and more ^determined now than ever, they arie "Carrying on'' to the finish. ' ' When the soldiers first went out to fight the despoilers of Belf^umj we who could not go undertook to help feed the starving women ana children who were victims of German savagery. Are WE carrjnng' on as the soldiers are doing? Or has our enthusiasm cooled-our sympathy died out-oMr help lessened or ceased ? Certainly the Belgians' need of help has not lessened, but rather increased! Three million women, children and old men are depending 'for food-for life itself-on the Belgian Relief Commission. Tlie Commission in turn depends on us Canadians for a substantial share of the necessary food, or the money with which to buy it. If we fall short in our contributions, thousands of Bfelgian kiddies must go painfully, if not fatally, shori in their food supply . Already an^alarmins number of them, weakened by scanty rations, are falling victims to Kioerculosis. There would be little merit in restoring Belgium to a nation whose motherhood and youth we had allowed to be decimated and weakened' by hunger and resulting disease Let us at home carry on the relief work as unselfishly, as eteadfJEistly and as successfully as our soldier boys are carrying on the fighting!
