In tlil.s laudable ami seif-sftcrlfidng labor on helii.lf of ,he lighting forces of tlio allied n.itioti.i ihe Canadian Y.M.CA. has taken a prominent part, ItH representatives not only being found In (5 real tlrltnin, Flanders, J.'rnnco, Italy and Palestine, hut in far-off Mesopotamia and India as well. Will' tlio Canadian camps in Oreat Britain It has fifty branches and with the Canadian troops in Franco lifty-one branches, while all told there are one hundred and two special secretaries overseas, plus three hundred assistants appointed by tho military authorities. Thirty-four of these special secretaries are located in France. Hut tlio ramifications of the Canadian " V" are by no means confined to the soldiers in training in England and lighting in France. Besides this its representatives are serving in every military camp and in every A RED TRIANGLE STATION NEAR LENS This much appreciated source of refreshment was located In a hot corner. he softies for tho time being, whether in city barracks, training ground, hospital, rest, camp, or front line trenches, there they hang up the bright lied Triangle, the insignia of their order, and servo him to the limit of their ability and opportunity. To all intents and purposes these centres of " Y " activity become to tho soldier the nearest possible approach under the circumstances to the home nnd lircsido which lie lias left in response to tho call lo arms. There he ran find rest, recreation and refreshment for mind and body, an abundant and free supply of stationery for the home letters ho wishes to write, and an ample supply of literature congenial to his various moods, while almost at his elbow as lie leaves the trenches tired, weary, or a ".walking wounded," he finds a dugout, with its flaming lied Triangle, where he can obtain a free and liberal supply of hot coffee, cocoa, tea, etc., to strengthen and fortify him for his journey to his enmp in ihe rear " If it wasn't fer the bloody blokes in the bleeding "uts," a Tommy is said to have remarked while sipping Jiis coffee in a " Y" hut somewhere in France, "It 'u'ld be a" 'ell of a time iu tho British army." Coarso and all as the expression may bo to delicate ears it was possibly tlio most expressive language that "Tommy" could command In order to give vent to his appreciation of the efforts of tho "Y" to cater to hiswelfare. On that account the manner of his expression may well bo condoned. For, after all, it is the sentiment, and not the words in which he clothes it, that determines the man. That war, and particularly tho present one, is hell there can be no doubt. But. while that is so it Is equally certain that, through the instrumentality of tlie Y.M.CA., more bits of heaven have been injected Into the soul of the boys In arms than has been the case in any previous war In hlitory That which the Y.M.CA. has Accomplished is little short of a miracle, Through the untiring zeal and self-sacrificing efforts of Its representatives the mental, spiritual and physical life of the soldier has been developed and strengthened, and his morale for tho stress and strain of battle fortified  To-day the Y.M.CA. does not have to wait, cap In hand, at tho door of the respective governments engaged In the Allies' cause, courting permission 1o establish huts and dugouts from which its secretaries and staff ntaf serve their fighting men. It Is the other way about. The respective governments are now Importuning the "Y," with the result that wherever today tho flag of an allied nation flies there itvto bo found somewhere the lied Triangle. And Hint means from Flanders to South Africn. It has a place even In dlstutjbcd Russia. enmp hospital in the Dominion, while special secretaries are on duty at the discharge depots in Quebec and Hull-fax. Not only is the ensign of the Canadian " Y " scattered throughout the camps in England and France, but. it Is attached to dozens of dugouts in tho forward trenches, where its secre-laries, continuously under shell lire, serve hot coffee, tea, chocolate, etc., to the tired, and often chilled, Canadian soldiers. When the boys from the Land of the Maple Leaf were driving the enemy from Vlmy Ridge men of the Canadian " Y " were right upon their heels catering to their necessities as they fought. "Almost before tho piace was consolidated," wrote Brigadier-General Odium to Captain Wallace, the senior officer of tho Canadian " Y," after the affair was over, " your representative had a distribution centre at the crest of Vlmy Ridge and was serving biscuits and chocolate to the men." On another occasion, when, during a German drive, the military authorities were unable to reach the men In the front trenches, the lires of many Canadian boys were saved by tho rations which were served gratis from a near-at-hand "Y" dugout The work being carried on by the " Y " men of Canada stationed at the camps in England and France is as varied as it is extensive. A part of the educational- work provides an opportunity for university student? to continue their course of study Religious services of a broad and help ful character are held dally. At least once or twice a week entertainments are held in auditoriums capable o[ holding a thousand or more men, the entertainers being men and women of the highest reputation. Tho physical wollbeing is also well looked after, all manner of athletic sports being regularly provided. A thousand dollars a month Is spent by the Canadian "Y" on concerts In England alone, while equipment furnished and supplies purchased In February for the free usa of our soldiers in England and Franco entailed an expenditure of .$57,000. Tho effect, which the efforts of the Canadian Y.M.CA. is having upon the moral, physical and intellectual welfare of the soldiers of Canada, both at home and abroad, Is most encouraging. ...To the parents who have sons among them the results should bo gratifying. The writer has In his possession a letter from avman who Is In charge of one of tho "Y" hut* at Wltley Camp, In which he says that out of a trainload of eight hundred men who were sent to a nearby town to spend Christmas Day, only one was under the influence of liquor when the return Journey was finished at eleven o'clock that night. One could scarcely have obtained better results had It been a trainload of eight hundred staid preachers instead of that number of rollicking young soldiers.

"A German victor:.- would vanquish republicanism from the world, for ihe German government rules by force, fear and cruelty. "The men of Kouth America, where freedom took a new birth a century ago, fpHow countrymen of San Martin, Bolivar, O'l-Ilggius and many another Chilean, Argentine and Uruguayan patriot wlio-e memory is honored today, will surely give their sympathy to those who In Kurope are fighting the battles of democracy and humanity." Hun Has Greedy Eyes Lord Northclfffe m his message says: "Latin-America i- as vitally interested as North America in Germany's attempt to enslave the world. Latin-America seeiU3 out of the danger zone today but tie defeat of France and the British Fmpire would be followed by an atta. k upon South America as surely as night follows day. "The German monster already has cast greedy eyes upon your fair young republics of the south. The monster has his agents already among you prepared for action �iC success should attend his efforts to crush Kurope and the .-list. The old tyrannies which South America threw off were as nothing m ihoso that are being imposed upon Belgium, Serbia, Poland, Rumani.i and Russia. "I have no doubt that Prussia will succeed In its attempt to dominate the world b'\;t each and every one of us mast he watchful and 'make preparation which costs so little while war costs so much. "We Europeans are touched and gratified by the sympathy that we receive from the free nations of South America and we know and if need should arise wo shall see your sons standing in the trenches beside our children and those of the great republic of the United States."

But lemon juice alone is acid, therefore irritating, and should be mixed with orchard white this way. Strain through a fine cloth the juic.o of two fresh lemons into a bottle containing about three ounces of orchard white, then shake well and you have a .whole quarter pint of skin and complexion lotion at about the cost one usually pays for a small jar of ordinary cold cream. Be sure to strain the lemon juice so no pulp gets into the bottle, then this lotion will remain pure and fresh for months. When applied daily to the face, neck, arms and hands it. should help to bleach, clear, smoothen and beautify the skin. Any druggist will supply three ounces of orchard white at very little cost and the grocer has tho lemons.-.-Advertisement. * LEG SORE A huge sore-very deep-full of foul discharge. Agony all day; no rest Another sharp encounter took place the same morning between a Canadian officer and four soldiers and a much larger party of Boches. Hearing the voices of the enemy the officer crawled a shell hole and to within ten yards of their post. Alarmed, the Germans sniped the position tor 15 minutes and then rushed the shell hole. Emptying his revolver the officer succeeded in fighting his way through, then regaining the rest of his party which then attacked the enemy and after lively bombing exchanges forced them to retreat. Additional information regarding the previous in which the Hun was repulsed with heavy loss after securing a momentary footing in our lines shows that the attackers came over i�v strength of 200. New^ Men Are Brave Notable features of -the fight were that all our casualties were from shell fire and that some of our men who took a foremost part in trench fighting had only been, five hours in the line and had never been in the trenches before. They acquitted themselves splendidly. Tho Canadian forces are following with intense interest the gallant" struggles of the heroic British army opposing such overwhelming enemy strength. Our men wait with stern confidence for whatever may develop, having no-fear of the ultimate issue. The morale of the Canadian forces was never better and whatever happens Canada in the field will not be unworthy of its glorious record. * Tho interest among Canadians is centered particularly on the gallant struggle of the third army under Genera! Byng. As the once master soldier ! of the Canadian forces h� holds a warm place in Canadian hearts and Canadian admiration for his gallant army is intense and universal.
