The next he forgets about tho charges and asks tor a royal commission to investigate a department. The fact of the matter is that tho opposition hopes that there is "something rotten In the state of Denmark" and hopes that by a series of blanket charges It can at least discredit the Bovoruinent.

It seems u pity, In view of the coutusion it has caused, that Currle should be a duplicate name in the list of Canadiiin oftlcers. This double personality of Colonel Jekyll and General Hyde has done a lot of nilBchiet lo a good soldier and worthy citizen. Military men, while unwilling to discuss the subje."t, say there wore probably two reasons why Colonel Currie did not get medals and decorations which bis successor .Major Marshall got. One Is that all the Canadians are heroes, and consequently all deserve medals so that singling one out would ho an invidious distinction. The other is tliat medals are only given for doing what you are ordered to do and that as Col. Currle did not succeed In bis impossible task of rolling back a Oonnan army ot eighty thousand with twelve i hundred lilgiilanders ho is not entitled | to a medal. However, In view of tho | medals tliat were aflcrwardB dlslrl-! billed  this looks like begging the [ liuestlon. .Moat jieoido will bo inclined � to agree with Colonel Currle that , somebody stood between him and tho coveted honor. Honors come easily to some jieople, and hp'd. to oUb;rs and along that line tliny are Idling a good ono on Sir Safn right now. It was Dave Marshall >vho was beading an Klgln county' delegation to Sir Sam.

I may say that nowhere was it received with m*(ro acclaim than In Elgin county-^---," for many years, It was not until the death of lier first, and only child, at the age of four, that much of her work was iiubllshed. Though her poems lose much from the translation, one glimpse of a favorite theme is as follows: "The fairest word on earth that's heard, On hitman lips the fairest word, Is mother To whom such name shall ono belong Higli honor hers her whole life long, .V mother. Hut all her earthly joys are o'ei-Who Is and then who is no more A mother." She translated into Gorman the favorite Ilumanlan folk songs, and wrote Korno short novels and dramas. Ponio of her publications are; "iid-leen Vaughnn," "Thoughts of a Queen" "Shadows on Life's Dial" and "A Real (Jueen's Fairy Xlook." She was an Indefatigable worker. Intorviowers who have lieen received at her palace have found her answering liyr' Innumeniblc letters herself on u typewritoi--four of which ina-olilnes she liud In constant use, eiuip-pod for writing In KiigUsh, Humaninn, French and German.
