Bryant crawled out of the wrecked dug-out with an assortment of twelve holes in his person, the worst wound of the lot being a broken leg below the knee Joint of his left leg. He still goes with a limp on tnac leg. He also has a big scar-on his left cheek where a fragment of shell cut a big hole through to his teetn.

Class number one are discharged without pension; class two, to which these boys .belong, are sent home on leave, and their future standing de- pends upon whether they recover. If they do not become fit for service during the sis months leave, they are discharged with a pension. Class three are discharged with pension as they ara injured beyond recovery for ser- vice. "To what class do the poor dead boys asked the scribe. "Oh, they aro in the 'daisy pusher' class" replied tbe boys in unison. "Daisy pushers! How irreverently are however of tlte be dis- j tributed all along the boundary and each v.'il! ride a certain number of miles back and forth daily. To ac- complish this will require a large num- ber of men. The present staff cannot spare enough for the work as they are kept very busy with their present work. It seems likely that a number of recruits will ho called for. These boys did not think much about the daisy pushers liiat have peopled the earth in the corner of the world where they had left their dead Agincoiirt, Crecy, Lens, ot other battlefields of comrades, and scores olden times must have furnished countless crops or daisies, long before Uese latest recruits to the ranks of .he dead had arrived. By the way, t Is stated as a historical fact that the first .use made of cannon in bat- tle was on the field of Crecy by King ItWward III.

London, -May 7. Addressing his constituents at Conway, Wales; yester- day afternoon, David Lloyd George de- fended his demands for compulsion, tbe necessity for which he said arose last September. Compulsion, the munitions minister said, simpVy meant that the country was organizing itself in an orderly, consistent and resolute manner for wai which could not. be run as a Sunday school treat. He declared it has never been said that Great Britain could raise as many men in proportion to population as France. Th'e, he was impossible, as Great Britain sup- plied France and her c'her allies wit! coal, material and munitions, and maintained the greatest navy of the world. There, however, WES still a considerable margin of men avail able for war, and if the need arose for increasing' the army, women, more and more, were coming to the rescue the munition works. There were nearly women, Mr. Llyod eorge said, engaged on tasks bsfore the war one would never have dream- ed women were capable of discharg- ng. A3 tiie result of this, the country iad, increased enormously not merely .he output, but its capacity to furnish nunitions of war.

They took the boys to the theatre, to the football games, drove them out into the country In autos and to church on Sunday. Both boys speak in the highest terms of the treatment accorded them by the transportation companies and the'citizens in all the cities through which they passed on their home coming. Bryant trained at Halisbury and went to France by way of Avonmouth and the Bristol channel, landing at St, Nazalro on the west coast of Franco going thence to Armentiers, and to the trenches at Yprea. Brown went across tho channel to Boulogne and to Festubert. While convalescing, Bryant lyas sent to Ramsgatc, arriving the day of the Zeppelin raid, which did damage at that place. Both boys express a de- j sire'to go back to-their battalion again before tho wrimmage te over.

Peters, of Calgary, O. C. 4th Field Troop C. has received instructions to recruit 60 men for ac- tive service with the Divisional Engi- neers, and 200 men to form one com- pany of the 4th Overseas Pioneer bat- talion, which, is being trained at St. Andrewa-on-the-Sea in New Bruns- wick. The requirements for the divisional engineers are well known, as already over 800 men have enlisted with the engineers from Alber'ta. The pioneers might be described as mid-way between the infantry and tho engineers, When it Is they take their place in the trenches with the Infantry, as Jias been the case during the past month with, .the 1st and 2nd Pioneers in but under ordinary conditions, they are used to complete such military works s can be constructed by men with less complete training than the engi- eers. This battalion already has strong ties with the west, because the com- manding officer, Lieut.-Col. Paul "Wea- therbie, has acted for the past four years commandant of the Royal anadian Engineers at Calgary. In addition to this H. B. Muckleston, late issistant chief engineer of the C.P.K. rrigation department at Calgary, and one of the most prominent civil erigi- leera in Alberta, will be one of the senior officers in the battalion, and Captain P. J. Jennings, another well tnowu engineer from Alberta, is the adjutant. F. V. Lurnb, late accountant of the Bank Commerce, Calgary, is .he paymaster. Altogether there are eight ollicers hailing from the west, and probably tbe company from Al- 5erta will he kept intact, and officered )y men.
