They are in khaki, either, because they seek adventure, or because public 'sent! ment has driven them into service This viewpoint is entirely wrong. Our voung men, most of them at any rate are at the iront or preparing to go to the front, because they are iaspiret the highest motives. They know that. the. principles upon which the Empire rests are at stake, and they would be poor citizens if they did not do their bit for their-country. at such a time, Here is a characteristic letter to prove that our young men appreciate the- the -task -they hare 'undertaken. It was found'on the bo3y of a young officer 'who fell, with so .many of the flower of Canada's, yoiing manhood; on the awful, the unfofi gettable, the ever-glorious struggle at Ypres, on June 13.
