PATKIOTISMof CANADIAN INDIANS "Please, air may 1 go to Regina to enlist?" According to a prominent C.P.R. official the question wjis put to a government Inspector at the File Hills Indian .\gency, Balcarres, Sask., and the speaker vas a tall young Indian. After looking sympathetically at the prospective soldier the Inspector aald: "I'm afraid your eyes are not strong enough to rass tho sight test." The Indian stood his ground, and seeing that he w-as not to be put off without a test, the inspector got a newspaper, and holding It before the eyea of the Indian who was only a few yards off, asked him It he could make out a large letter to which he pointed his linger. Like raany of the white people, this Indian thought he could see everything, though. In fact, he was almost blind. His eyes expanded with enthusiasm. He looked towards the paper; he stretched his neck; his face reddened deeper than before; he paused, and be faltered: "It'S-lt'a-a-a-C." The letter was O. The youth had lost his chance. He possessed a spirit that could dash into the mouth of a German cannon and hands that could Dlay a hundred Oermana without tiring. These were wonderful t^ifts. but. alas! his sight was too weak to enable him to perform the simple task of making out a letter. "Good night," was all he said as he left the room. Altogether thorh are fourteen of the File Hills Indians in the Canadian e.rmy; others are joining the forces, but owing to physical defects and ignorance of the Rnglls". language, many are prevented from joining. The Indian populatloa ol File 'lUls at pre- sent Is Si men, 76 women and 164 children, so It must bo considered that these people havd doDo pretty well for the colors. Besides the Indian population ot File Hills there are men, 11 women and 4 children of tho white race living there. All unite In doing th';; they can for the Empire, and the loyalty of the Indians is staunch as that of their neighbors. Since March. 1315, $1,100 has been raised for the Red Cross Society, which has 10^ Indian mamberE. During tho fall of 1D14, tlilrty-three members ot the Agency gave $502 for the Patriotic Fund. A Patriotic Fund Aaaociation Is now "In full working order, and in one month the Indians have subscribed $90. Last winter an Indian concert brought $212 for the-Belgian Relief Fund. Last fall an entertainment tor the same purpose brought In $26. The concerts that may be held In the future are cot likely to be so successful 88 the early ones, for ten oi the original nineteen players and singers are now wearing khnkl. Between the causes mentioned, the Tobacco Fund, Trafalgar Da^u a*td the purpose ot supplying Christmas Presents for the Indian soldlors in France, the Indians at File Hills have given or assisted In raising nearly $2,000 as their share In helping Canada in the war.
