FEBRUARY 1018 THE LETTIBHIDGK DAILY JKHALD r "Truth Above vAUThings" \i "Abtve '�Ji things, George," she �oo�d on this* to the train for the vrcddlnj journey "lot us ue truthful with osob. othetv In everything. It jneans to muoh to a nan, yo\i know -absolute and pett^ci ctaUdouce in her husband." >\J| "Oh, to he sure," GiMge resiled, moving the end of her hat quill out ot his ear. "There can be tin such conftder.ee between miu and '*lfe an there should bo without sntire truth and frankness." "I'm awfully glad you agree with me," the slid. "Do you think I look' britjey, George, dear?" ITe drank.her in with his eyes. "You couldn't leak any more so it your hat wan trimmed with rice and old shoes. You look like a going-away eown in. a Mon book." , "Oh, Goorsf!" she exclaimed -with disappointment. "I so hopo nobody would know. They make such fun of people-on trains." "I don't sott how you'd expect anything elBe when you swish along with ft typical bride's outfit-all naw, and you blushing like a rlpo peach every time anybody looks at you," George declared. "But I thought I looked-well, different," she urged. /"Pooh!" said George coolly. "They "j all look alike. Hats, suits, shoes- everything ia the same with a bride. They'll pipe us off the minute we get out of the carriage." "But they said I looked so culm and cool and self-possessed when we left the house," she insisted. I "Oh, they just said that to ease i your feeling of self-consciousness." he I explained. "I've, seen a hundred / brides, and-1 can't see that you look 1 one bit different from any one of j them." "Don't-don't I look different to you, George? You don't mean that I look the same to you as other brides you've seen?". "Why, I can't say you look any different," he replied. "Of course, you are different, but you look about the same as most brides--pretty ones, of course," he added. She had been very happy, but a lit. tie mist came in her eyes. She so wanted him to say no other woman In the world could ever look like her -to him. "We'll hare a jolly trip, won't we, George?" she ventured after a moment in which she mastered her disappointment. "Ou, itii);;lit perhaps be culled the Platoon of Life, .lust at, present tin y uro in training for military service, and when I he period of training Is completed the terms of their enlistment require Uicm to serve for a /oar at any place to which they may; ic sent. There are girls from Halifax and it. John, girls from Manitoba and Saskatchewan, a3 Well as girls from nearer home. No recruiting- campaign was needed to obtain their services. Indeed, tho marvel has been that they ever learned that the Government wanted their services. Just at present this body of women volunteers is known as the School of Massage. The Military Hospitals Commission conducts it, and Lieut. 12. J. Kemla.il is tho principal. l)ur-.ng tho time of instruction tho recruits are paid $25 a month, and when they take the field as qualified masseuses they will receive $aj a month plus Til cents a day aubsislanco when quarters are not provided. The M. li. (', has over .seventy hospitals, stretching in a cualn from Cape Breton across Canada to Vancouver island. The girls must serve In any one of these hospitals as ordered by fie Commission's officers. Massage as a profession was practically unknown in Canada when war broke out. Consoquoutly when it became necessary for u proportion of the wounded soldiers to be cared for within tht> Dominion, the number jit trained massetiRtis and masseur:; was inadequate. 'Through the cooperation of Lieut.-Col. -Mayes, Director of the Canadian Army Uyni-n.istio Staff, lbs services of Lieut, i then Sergt.-Major) Kendall were obtained by the M.H.C.-, and a school was started at Whitby under his direction. The first plan was to train returned soldiers for this profession, but an insufficient number obtained. The doors were accordingly opened to women. One school, composcd'^about equally of returned soldiers and women, was graduated from tiio Whitby School, and a second class was opened at Hurt House, .Toronto, with about eighty students. No appeal for students was made. On the contrary it was necessary, on account of the limited possibilities of instruction, to reject many applicants. Graduates of the first school are now scattered all across Canada, and are giving universal satisfaction. The course has been somewhat broad- I oncd in the second school, and it is hoped that even better results will j be achieved.

The course lasts for six months, but the present class may have a further weeks' instruction in tho re-educational work conducted by Dr. Edward A. Tlolt In the same building.

It is contemplated the masseuses shall oe given sufficient instruction to qualify them for this work. During the regular session classes Inst from f a.m. to 4 p.m. Among the subjects taught arc prnclb'.'il massage, anatomy, physiology, electrotherapy and remedial gymnastics. Each day's work, however, begins with a half hour of strenuous physical training. Practical massage is other electrical remedy. The masseuses arc luinjr instructed in the application of these methods of treatment. Ily ionization it is possible to put into a limb or joint certain drurrs which pass in by tho aid of an electrical current. A wet pad soaked in the desired solution is placed upon I tho part of the body to be treated j and a ncprnllve or positive electric current, according to the necessity, is applied. An ionic hath consists of placing one arm and one lee: of a patient each in separate balks. The current is implied and passes from tho mm. bath fhrouejt the body to the let; bath with beneficial results to certain types of paralysis.
