Stallard, of Lethbridge, in J a letter to his mother here written I from "somewhere in France" on the Sth of March. T-le writes as follows: I'm tickled to Irani you've received my badge together with the other sou- venirs. I though you'd be wandering over that piece German shell. It's a niece of higli explosive shrapnel. You will notice the figures on same. Well, that is the time fuse. Say they wish to split same over the front lino, distance 01" course they know, and time it takes the shell to travel. They move figures; around to necessary time and away she goes, and so on with longer distances. One of the boys on leave.posted a few beautiful high explosive nose caps, solid brass.

The elements have been mil menu, snowing and freezing for the past mouth (very heavy on the latter) in fact typical western weather with- out the glorious sunshine.

Life in "Sandbag City" or "the Villa-de-la-Shivers" is absolutely a outpoints in brilliancy the great north- ern lights, so dear to the heart of Robert Service.

The artillery continued this gooil work for about two days. Suddenly, they quit, about three in the afternoon and thinking our bombardment hud fin- ished, no doubt crowded his front line and supports with all kinds of men. He had sure another guess coming. Our plans wore well Hxed, believe received information to this effect, and at four a.m. the next morning liie batteries would open up, "Fritz" meanwhile was sure guessing both ways at once. Fortunately my chum and I were on duty at this nocturnal hour, four a.m., and it was a dirty night, snow- ing and freezing "to boat the ideal for the .undertaking on baud.

British troops on our left were attacking a line of trendies just to ihe bide of the wood, in front of which the old were ready. Throughout the day our batteries had pounded this selected frontage with everything from light field guns to fifteen inch howitzers, it was a won- ilerful display, our shrapnel burs ting about two feet off the ground, cutting into this spot. What Fritz suffered, Lord alone knows, but he'd have no pity, for our airmen reported the lines thickly manned. It was a won- derful and never-to-be-forgotten sight, the flashes of flume from the batter- ies, who were sending them in at terrific: speed, illuminated everything for miles around. Hundreds of star shells were shooting into the sky, fas- was any more beautiful and wierd. Yet another mighty effort by our gunners, green, red and yellow flares (signals i'rom mixed with the steady stream going sky-wards, shrap- nel bursting, showering its mean ton- i gue pf flame among the oft haltered I and ineiess trees in the wood facing us, made a sight for (he "Gods of j War.''

Dawn was Just breaking through over Fritz's j line. I've watched a few hundred of. cheerless dawns hit across this trail of desolation but never shall I forget this. The smoke, lighted up by the many-lights, to a novice, would have caused a gas alarm, but we had been through this many times before (I'm not Suddenly our guys .tiinislied, bayonet and pluck settled the issue.
