Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 23, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOURTEEN THE LETHRniDGE DATLT HERALD Considerable discussion has taken place recently regarding deduction from the patriotic fund for those dependents who are earning money otherwise. There will be no such deductions, according to n resolution passed by the central committee at Ottawa. The locnl committee has just received the following circular with reference to the subject: In RcEarnlngs of Soldiers' Dependents The South Alberta Branch recently received notice that the Control Committee at Ottawa hnd passed a resolution "That no deduction should be made from the Canadian Patriotic Fund allowance on account of either casual or regular earnings." I am therefore instructed to notify you of this new regulation by which you will hereafter be governed, nnd to request that you give the matter due publicity. In making allowances hereafter no account will be taken of earnings from work of soldiers' dependents who are otherwise eligible to receive assistance from the fund. Adjustments will ho made as from the first day of May. 1917, of any allowances which hitherto have been subject to deductions on account of earnings. P.

Now they are on n plateau and can go forward, but what a plateau! It is of volcanic creation, and it consists of craters, rocks, and caves; it is like the pictures of the dead moon. It is bare and blasted and waterless; never was a battlefield In such a petrified spasm of nature. Because there is no water the Italians build an acoueduct. bit by bit as tliey go along.

If'l should dlo think only this of me; That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England. Thoro shall bo In that rich earth a richer dust con-' coaled; A'dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware.

Or. again, hear what Donald Hankey, another talented young man who was killed soon after he penned these linos: "Speaking of a captain who had earned tho love of his men and who wa3 killed in the trenches, he says: But he lives. Somehow he lives. And we who knew him do not forget. Wo feel his eyes on us. Wo still work for that wonderful smile of his. Thero are not many of the old lot left now; but I think that those who went West have seen him. When they got to the other side I think they were met. Some one said: "Well done, good and faithful servant." And as they knelt before the gracious pierced Figure, I reckon they saw nearby the captain's smile. Anyway, in that faith let me die, if death should come my way; and so, I think", shall 1 die content," Then he has in his little book "A Student in Arms" this little essay on the Cockney: "Well, he has surprised us all, as wo' have said, and has given to tho world the amazing picture of a soldier who is infinitely brave without vindictlveness, terrible without hati\ all-enduring amf yet remaining his simple, kindly, jaunty self. For the Cockney warrior does not hate the Hun. Often and often you will hear him tell his mate "tho Boches is just like us, they wants to get 'onie as much as we do; but they can't 'elp their-selves." At times he has regretful suspicions of the humanity of the Prussians and Bavarians; but they are not long-lived, and even while they enduro he consoles himself with the proved good-fellowship of the Saxon.

This is the burden of the Cockney's philos- ophy or war-a phrase that seems like the echo of a statelier word of charity. "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they-do." from one" mountain peak to another. They have built trenches, fortifications, roads, tunnels, retaining walls, 10,000 feet above the sea level; all this in the face of an enemy fighting desperately on the defensive. First they had to seal up the passes in the Dolomite Alps so that Austria could not pour armies through there upon them. Austria interrupted them by pouring the armies through; the Italians counter attacked with such lightning like rapidity that the Austrians were hurled back, and the Italians went on with their work and sealed the passes. That is what all this mountain climbing, this making men do the wall-ascending work of flies, and doing it in the face of fire, was, for. Italy cannot advance any further In tha* direction, which is the northern direction; at least General Cadorna will not waste his time considering it, and having made-the north safe from attack he turned to the east. There again he climbed mountains, swung bridges accross them, tunneled them, and when he found an impregnable mountain he blew the top of it off. Yes, that is the way the Italians have advanced-by blowing up the Alps. Before such superhuman resourcefulness and valor the Austrians gave way, and with the taking of Gorlzia. the Italians came from perpendicular warfare to horizontal warfare; they found themselves on tho Carso plateau. Here they are making their spring offensive. They are no longer fighting in the eyries of eagles, but they are still battling with nature, nature in a retreat which she fortified as if must not sell liquor to soldiers or eign office.
