Ackroyd Cyrus Coleman 55 DIIAFTEES REPORT 1918 CALGARY, Jan. 3 The first bunch of the drafted men under Ihe military service act turned up at Victoria Park bar- racks this morning in fine slyle. For the most part they crowded into the orderly room wilh a smile as sunny as the weather. Only here and there was there any appearance of a sore- head, but as the morning wore on these few individuals grad- ually joined in with the others in the general good humor that prevailed. Taken altogether they were z very excellent class of men, and come up to every expectation of Lieut. Col. P. A. Moore, the commanding officer of Ihe first depot battalion. SHARP ENCOUNTERS 1918 CANADIAN ARMY HEADQUARTERS, Mar. 30 Before the great battle began two enemy attempts were made to raid our lines. At one point an enemy party was "sent over to see If our front line was occupied." It was chal- lenged by one of our bombing patrols. The enemy attacked the post. In the fighting which followed the Boche was driven out of our trenches by rifle fire and pursued by a Canadian bombing squad. Two prisoners were captured and numerous casualties inflicted on the Hun: Oui casualties were nil. JOINS UP 1918 MAGRATII, March 30 Rae Anderson left on Tuesday for Calgary, where he will don the khaki. Mr. Anderson has lived here for a number of years with his parents, his fa- ther owning a large farm rear here. RUSS. CRUISER SUNK 1918 LONDON, March 29 The sinking by a mine in the harbor at Reval on the Gulf of Finland of the Russian Cruiser Admiral Makaroff is reported in a Petrograd dispatch to Co- penhagen as forwarded from that point by the Exchange Telegraph Company. TO ACCEPT AID PETROGRAD, Mar. 29 (By the Associated Press) M. Lunacharsky, minister of edu- cation, expresses his opinion that while an alliance with Am- erica Ls impossible, Russia is willing to accept American as- sistance in the form of loans and arms in view of the fact that Germany is the common enemy. KILLED AT FRONT 1915 FERNIE, Dec. B The name of Capt. H. S. Monkman appearing in Saturday's casu- alty list as being killed, has cast a gloom over his many friends here. Captain Monkman was, for a long time, a resident of Fernie, being engaged in the drug business. Before graduat- ing from a medical college, he has received a military train- ing, and went to-the front in the fighting line, saying he had received his training as such and refusing a commission as a surgeon when tendered him. No more popular young man ever lived here and he leaves behind him an enviable record as a clean, Christian liver and a thorough businessman.

It being Remembrance Day, we'd like tn re- member "The Boys of the 39th." So here it is, from the yellow pages of yester- year, "The Boys of the 39th." All honor to the 39th, As they parade through town, They make one feel like joining up, But twice I've been turned down. Take Vernon Redmond first of all, Why he's a peach with lots of gall, And second in line comes Davidson, tall, My word! he'll make the Huns feel small. The next in line is Jack Barklay, Who is always ready for any fray, He's slow but never mind, He'll show the Huns where they're behind. The next one noticed in the pack, Is one of our bank R. Jack, Oh yes! Sid Harris is all there too, To show the Germans what he can do; And I must not omit our gallant Geo. Blunt, Who is always improving the other guy's stunt, He's our signal instructor you need never fear. He knows the whole works from back up to beer. Another one noticed as they pass by Is Dudley Cocq with the "come hither And Harold Hamilton of course, In whom the boys all find resource. Well, talk about fine leaders, just let me see, There's Lieut. Filmer agile as can be, Major Stafford, Finley and oh, I forgot To mention the Sergeants, the pick of the lot. Yes, indeed, there's another I know used to batch, He's so mind, it is Norman Sandbach, But where is our drummer boy, Irish Fred Kane, Of his cute little kettle drum, begorra, he's vain. And yet as they pass I'd just love to poke My straight-backed pal, F. G. Holyoak; And still they keep coining, the next Ted Pittard, Who I'm afraid finds at Kingston the work rather hard. However, my comrades, I cannot go on, Without saying a word for my friend Lothion, Who is training at Kingston to make his clothes fit, And on his return we'll find he's just it. And then there's old dreamy at the YMCA Who falls o'er the wooden horse most every day, And Bombardier .Backus as tight as a clam, Thinks he's a Kitchener or at least Col. Sam. The next one is Moorehead our Battery S.M. Who is always a working and drilling his men, He's a scrapper and runner with lots of good vim, And God help the Huns on his way to Berlin. My friend porky Van Horn, a most solid man, Has his wee doch an doris whenever he can, And old Harry Low who cleans out the room Is always right there on the end of the broom; And then there's Sam Irwin with the sandy moustache Stuck out on his lip like a bicycle patch. In No. 4 Sub there is one they call Dell, Oh Lord help his feet if his moustache ever fell, There's the three brother Masons, you surely know Mutt, Who'll rival O'Leary when using his butt. Charlie Chaplin was saying he wouldn't complain If they'd only permit him to carry a cane, He's quite willing to cast off his hard hat and tie, But to swank was his aim when he donned the Khaki. Private Matthews will sure have to alter his gait, For lately he said to his old friend and mate, It's so hard to keep step with the men by my side. The rests all so oh dear my stride. Earl Morris was saying he'd rather prefer A helmet made so as to show his red hair, And seeing I've just spoke to Jimmy McMaster, I feel sure his putties are stuck on with plaster. Private Lindsay is so disappointed these days, He can't understand the government's ways, At first to his job there sure was some class, But now he is tripping it out with the mass. Freddy Downer no doubt is there with the crowd, Corporal Johnstone also who comes from Macleocl, And says this here place is the limit for dust, If it don't soon stop blowing he'll dry up or bust. Dear me! There's another you all will agree, Why it's Wilhelm A. Marnoch, as cute as can be. And although on the Kaiser he's no relation He talks about him wi'li lamentation. Oh! Just one more private before I conclude, But of course you all know T. A. Underwood, And Frank, what's his name, from the Empire Club When facing the Germans will raise a hub-hub. Bobbie Fairbrolhcr is generally feeling so gay, But yesterday he held our attention lo say, That this here parading so tires his feet, And he feels so of late, that by jove, ho can't eat. Jack Lombard and Sncll are both looking aged, Since they started to drill and vacated the cage, But they'll learn that thro' time Ihe best thing to do Is to honor thn (icrniiin whenever he's due. Whatever limn the rail may come These hoys will make things round CX here hum, And boldly lo Ihe depot file With a stop nnd a broadened smile Taking Ilioir ndvcnlures nil in nil.

Fob. 10 A good crowd of people was present at the Red -Cross meet- ing held in the town hall on Friday night. President R. W. Bradshaw presided and many important matters were dis- cussed.
