"ANYTHING NEW IN WAR ? : WORK?" ? ; o � � Tlie work done by Canadian womon In order thai this v.'ar may conie to a successful ending-peace with victory-is notlUng aiiort of amazing. It Is stupendous In.its aggregate. Socks by tho millions of pairs, hospital sup-pUes in tho same enormous qiiantl-tlos, comforts wltlioul stint makes a record of devotion nnd faithfulness never before equalled. It is compara; tlvely easy to hand over one's plato or lowols uo matter how ' highly they aro valued it the cause for which they are'sacrlfloed is tho dearest In llfo. 11 is^ oasjy to make a great sacrifice tiiat comes all at once, lint the .sacrifice, the devotion tliat is lUornlly moasured by slltohoa and Inches Is the thing that trJes tho niettlo of tlie toilers. For four yoaro tho work has gone ou and somehow the hands have not lost tliolr cunning nor their hearts lova for freedom and right and tho flag. No one has dreamed of crying "Enough!" even whoh tho price has lioon one's life plans. Tho tie that kinds those workers togetlier caiv iiot bo weakened. As long tis that tie '(Wclstslho British Bmpiro is safe. 11 is that which keeps tlio little groups in Isolated spots knitting and wdvIi-�Itig and praying and bolieviug. Kvon those women whoso earthly iiUgrlin-ngo sooms (completed have Bent in t'holr hundreds of pairs of Bocks -which their dear old fingers FINiST iB vfhat Mrs, C. A. Campbell, of Powttusan, Onl, saya In describing Eam-Duk. She writes: "I blistered iny heel badly bj wearing now shoes. Some dyo from ray stocking got into It and caused K poisoued sore. It was �xtromoly , painful and for a week I could not' put a- Bhoo on. Then r lieard ot Kam-Buk nnd commencod using it.

EOc. box, 3 tor $1,25. have knit in order that the torch ot liberty shall not be e.xtlnguishod. The contribution of money is likewise enormous and amazing. Jlere again it seems easy to raise large sums by large contributions, but the almost fabulous amount conlrlliuted by ttio women of Canada represents ceaseless economies, undying activity and a wonderful Ingenuity in devising ways ot earning money. The whole story of the work ot Canadian women la tho story of individual devotion and sacrifice and faithfulness. Tlio work in Its entirety Is so magnificent because the work oC each individual woman in Canada has been so magnlfioent. . . ' I'uanlmily ot purpose has charac-torieed tho work and "keeping everlastingly at it" has crowned the work with succoBs. When one examines into the kinds ot work dona one realizes atJ'oBh tho wonderful devotion which Jias risen, superior to a monotony tuat, in poacefiil days, would hft'/e held not even one group of workers for an entire year. The reports of activities read the same from Liabrador to Alaska: "rted Cross work, socks, pyjamas, comtorts for the boys who have loft us, lottors to each ono of.our men," otc. Always tho samo story of devotion. Moat of the letters mention loaa, tag-days, bazaars and autograph quiitfi as tho moans' employed for raising money, but a number have found that after all, the pledge of a regular contribution, liowovor small, Is a ver^ reliable method of raising a fund that can be dejiendod upon. Smaller dis-trluts have found it particularly desirable to apportion a certain territory to Individual canvassers who attend to their woik regularly. It is this careful attention to the "mIcklQ" whicli has produced the handsoln* "inucklo." Gnu lino of work that seems doslr-ublo appears to have been taken up In Canada by only one body of work-era. The I,ovana Society composed of the women of Queen's UnlvorslLy hftvo done wonderfully In providing vermlit-proof tmdorolothlug, acting ou tho stiggoBtion ot Miss Cordon, who is particularly Interosted In work done by KngUsh university womon.
