Within the month two authoresses of popular works have passed away and their untimely ends will he regretted by numbers who have read 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 McKiii- ney, whom she married in June only last year, and her death occurred on the llth inst., in New York, after the birth of a daughter. The story, of Judy Abbott was projected as a social tract, but grew into a novel, which achieved wide popularity. A request to her fur a play was met with the answer that she knew nothing of the itage aiul was in the form of a series of letters, but her original aynopsis proved entirely suitable for the purpose. The play proved a great success in Great Uill-, aln and in the United States, and for a time there was a regular rush for! Hie book. "Dear which came j later also a good recaption.

We wens just five hundred yards back of Ihe front lint.- trenches and about fifty foot above them, that for vie iv of all I hat was goi on it could'hardly be surpassed as a lookuut. A big shell had made a huge hole in tho eajst wall. but. our order- lies built in tlie bricks again, except tht; two top layers, and here very of- ten for an hour at a time we watched the workings of war by low. Unbind us were hundreds of our own artil- lery. -Just back of our cellar were three field batteries, and what thun- der they did make, and how their shells shrieked over our beads, and how we wondered what had happened as we saw them burst on the Huns' ing our stay in mmchcs. I re. (trench 31131 beyond!

Out of the small profits made during the two weeks' running of the tent we were able to buy twenty dollars worth of chocolate and distribute it to the men in tlie front lines. Tin; men "in re- serve" used this as a writing room and general gathering place. The first night it was opened I met good many of pur Methodist 'rom some of our bust homes. I am almost overcome sometimes when I 13y thousands of shell holes. I stood beside one of our new guns today and saw it fire for tlie first time in France. It Is a 12-inch gun. Its shell weighs S50 pounds and takes pounds of cordite to discharge. An artillery gen- eral wtis hero for the occasion, ;ind he j was very friendly to Capt. WiJIiin and I myself. KB told us !G stand on tip- L toes and open our mouths when the sun was fired. Well, my curiosity was satisfied with that first' charge, and if I can nfrarige it I will never be look at the fine type of manhood that is going into the jaws of death. I was more than impressed of this fact after a two-hour chat with Private Riddell, son of Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Rid- dell, Edmonton, of Edmonton Col- lege. His conversation coulil not have been brighter, and for a boy in his early twenties he had a great vision j our artillery. any nearer than necessary when "Gentle as the Tommies call her, is fired. She has a range of miles, and the day 1 saw her fired her target was ten miles away, and the third shot was reported by the aero- nlann nbservers to be a dpad hit. So for the marvellous efficiency of of life and good grip of himself. Monday, U9th. The day was quiet, Thursday. was busy about-but at midnight the foe shelled our iiere and there organizing a concert J front lines a bit. I was awakened at to be helU in our tent, when I met 1 midnight with a message that there Corporal Ward, of the 1st Regiment. His face was the picture of grief. He Lold me he had just heard that his brother had been killed by a bomb. I immediately left the concert to tho others, and together we went toward the front, to find out the truth con- cerning his brother, who was in the lUth. I shall never forget the facts of that journey. The first was tlie cold grey outlook as we trudged along through indescribable mud, and the second the vision splendid of immor- tality as we returned. The news was too true. I shall not describe a poor, mangled body, but I have never seen a sadder sight than his poor bro- ker kneeling beside the remains, sob- Ding to 'break his heart. These were .he tears wrung from the heart of a strong man. .Then came tlie. soul's awakening. I took my place by his side, and told the sweet old story of the Father's house of many mansions and the gift eternal through our Lord and Saviour. Together we said "a prayer, and as we left the spot where the. devoted soldier lay at rest he-whole situation was transfixed. our way back, having ar- the funeral for the morrow. 'And the old grey road grew brighter, and the old grey load grew lighter." as we realized as never before that Christ was our yoke-fellow. Saturday, were all on ,he move, getting packs in order for :he front-line trenches; but we had line for our usual service, commenti- ng ourselves to God. Capt. Wilkin had Jommunion at 9.30 for Anglicans, and had Communion for all others save Roman Catholics at 11 o'clock. T mist, here tell an incident Uiat makes :he life of a chaplain very happy. Af- of the above-mentioned services was past, a certain noble cap- ain came down to my shack. He tap- ied.lightly on the door, and, of course- was glad to see him, but great joy 'illed my heart at the following con -ersation.

I cannot write too I- ly of soiue of our medical officers, or- derlies and stretcher-bearers. They are efficient, active and brave, and tlie wounded are soon waited upon with a tenderness that is in marked contrast to all that goes on around them, even as their duties. Tuesday, Nov. morning Capt. Wilkin and I had to go down to an old dug-out to look after some j poor lads. We had to pass over two hundred yards iu full view of ihe enemy., Capt. Balibur insisted on go- ing with us, so, about sixty feet apart, we started. About three-quar- ters of the way down----- Hoad, near Farm, the Germans opened fire. 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, lint we discovered that one of the shells had" burst right oh the road where we had been scurrying along only a few seconds before.
