The main point is that the services are held, and the troops have something to remind them that Sunday is not just like other days, and that they have some- thing else to do besides "potting Germans. Get Horse Stilts After this mid-day servite, I return- ed to my quarters for an excellent lunch. This done, I had my horse saddled, ana set out for my next ser- vice. It was the horse's first day ol Sunday duty. After three weeks of waiting I drew a horae from the erinary section last week. He was wooly when I got him, and so thin that the other officers hailed him with cries of derision, '-Where are his "Get 'him; Wilts." But al ready a few days of grooming and feeding have made a -bij, difference After a week or two I think he wll mike a very passable mount. On thi! Bucephalus, I reached-my third bille at 2.

Here and there candles flickered and flared and ,he forms of men loomed up In the semi-darkness, reclining on the hay, or sitting on benches by the table. Many of these were university-men, either graduates or students in engin- eering, men who need, and show, more cool courage th'ari perhaps any other corps in the army. For R their busi- ness to direct the infantry soldiera in the digging of trenches, and the build- Ing and repairing of parajiets, and to do at night the work that, calls for nerve and skill, such as the laying Pf barbed wire entanglements between the trenches, exposed to the full fire of the Germans. Perhaps their turn for casualties will us hope not. Meantime it Is remarkable that this company has not yet lost a man.
