In the early hours of the evening croquet and clock golf were played. Mrs. Mclntyre, of Windsor, Out., winning the prize in the latter game. Later when darkness descend- ed, dancing on the lawn was enoyed. During the evening refreshments were served at small tables by Misses Nellie and Minnie Hazeil, Miriam Stoltze, Dona Murray, Devina Sang and Helen McKillop. Miss Irene Gardiner was in charge of the candy table. The weath- erman was very generous as tlie night: was ideal for such an entertainment; and a large number were present. j Within the month two authoresses of popular works have passed away ant their untimely ends will be regretted by numbers who have road and enjoy ed their books. One is Miss Jean Web- ster {Mrs. Glenn Ford McKinney) who wrote the story of her own life and called it "Daddy Long-Legs." Her "Daddy Long-Legs" was a weal- thy American, Mr. Glenn .Ford McKin- ney. whom she married in June only last year, and her death occurred .on the 11th inst., in Now York, after the birth of a daughter. The story of Judy Abbott was projected as a social tract, but grow into a novel, which achieved wide popularity. A request to her for a pfay was met with the answer that she knew nothing of the stage and "DaddpLong-Legs" was in the form of a series of letters, but her original synopsis proved entirely suitable for the purpose. The play proved a great success in Great Brit- ain and In the United-States, and for time thore was a regular rush for the book. "Dear which carao later also met with a good reception, Miss Sarah Mac Naugliton. who diet] a few days ago in London, England, liad been doing Red Cross work at" the front since early In the war. and It is believed that the privations she un- derwent were partly responsible for her death.

I shall never forget tlie facts of that journey. The first was the cold grey outlook as wu trudged along through indescribable mini, and the second the vision splendid of Immor- tality as we returned. The news was all too true. I shall not describe a poor, mangled body, but I have never seen n sadder sight than his noor bro- ther kneeling beside the remains, sob- bing to 'break his heart. These wore the tears wrung from the heart of a strong man. Then came the soul's awakening. I took my place by his side, and told the sweet old story of the Father's house ot many mansions and the gift of; life eternal through our Lord and Saviour. Together we said a prayer, and as we left the spot where the devoted soldier lay at rest the whole situation was transfixed. We.wended our way back, having ar- ranged the funeral for the morrow. "And the old grey road grew brighter, and the old grey load grew as we realized as never before that Christ was our yoke-fellow. Saturday, were all on the move, getting packs in order for the front-line trenches; but we had time for our usual service, commend- ing ourselves to God. Capt. Wilkiii had Communion at 9.80 for Anglicans, and I had Communion for all others save JRoman Catholics at 11 o'clock. T must here tell an incident that makes the life of a chaplain very happy. Af- ter'the time of the above-mentioned services was past, a certain noble cap- tain came down to my shack. He lap- ped lightly on the door, and, of course. I was glad to see him, but great joy filled my heart at the following con- versation. He was a bit shy as he said, "Have you ever administered the Sacrament to I replied that I had on occasions administered it to one. probably a sick person. And then he said, "But have you ever adminis- tered it to one. a strong man in the j you I best of health; and if so, give me the Holy Communion now, as derlies and stretcher-bearers. They are efficient, active and brave, and the wounded are soon waited upon with a tenderness that is in marked contrast to all that goes on around them, even as they are performing their duties. Tuesday, Nov. 80th. This morning Capt. Wilkin and I had to go down to an old dug-out to look after some poor lads. We had to pass over two hundred yards in full view of the enemy.. Capt. Balfour insisted on go- ing with us, so, about sixty feet apart, we started. About three-quar- ters of the way down Hbad, near Farm, the Germans opened Eire. We ran like deer and got into a dug- out. The Huns put over fourteen shells, and with fear and trembling we stuck to our dug-out. Finally the shelling ceased, and having perform- ed our sad duties we returned. On our journey back we were not molested, but we discovered that one of the shells had' burst right on the road where we had been scurrying along only a few seconds before. We just got back in time to hear that mysterious hum which tells of ;i coming shell. The Germans opened up on Farm about two hundred yards below, us. It was a fierce bom- bardment of the poor old farm and a very trying time for our Second Bat- talion. They sent up a S.O.S. meo sage, and then we got in touch with our artillery antl asked for retaliation- Immediately the enemy ceased shell- Farm and turned on our head- sweet- heart's choice.

Can anyone with any fedling at all fail to be stirred as he imagines that honest two' dead comrades, a dark, blac'k' nlglit, two chaplains, weird flares, a drizzling rain, six inches of mud and twelve voices repeating the universal prayer, "Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed he Thy name." were the prayers we but- we -felt God knew all about our sorrow, and so we were comforted.
