There wasn't one of them who would tell me anything about it, but would talk of everything else under the sun. They can keep a secret well,-those Canadian boys! Some of the;boys were reading novels-books tjj.e ward sister had distributed. Others were playing cards. One great big chap was sitting cross-legged on a chair beside his bed, with his saucy looking Scotch cap over one ear, reading a red-covered book. His wound 'Was a clean bullet through the shoulder. So he could run. around, if he wanted to. This was Lance Corporal A. Frayne of the 15th (48th Highlanders) who had enlisted at Queenston, "Ontario, but had lived in Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbridge. He had been in the police on the Strathcona side of the river (now South Edmonton) and his brother, Arthur Frayne, he said was 'one time an Alderman in Lethbridge -now in a hospital in England. He, too, had been wounded, but the brother hadn't been able to "locate" him yet. Across the ward, three Canadian soldiers had drawn up chairs beside the bed of Pte. J. P. Schofield. of Trail, B.C., 4th Machine Gun. They were having a game of whist. The players were in high spirits and when they found I wanted a story of the Switch Line, got their heads together and made very merry-at my expense. "Let's tell her a good one." I heard the Westerner say, In a stage whisper; and then 1 followed the beginning of what has become a very familiar and enjoyable tale-that of the famous American gun. Fortunately I had read in the papers about that wonderful gun-which took two weeks to recoil-and so was able to Interrupt their cheerful flow of language (they were all talking at once) by assuring, them that 1, was not going to "bite" on that one. So they conspired again, and told how a new electric bomb had been invented and thrown over by the Germans. A fellow picked one up, and not being able to let go, it had burn-etl his hand off. Another thought Ire would try to throw it back at the enemy, where it came from. Fortun^j ately, before he met a similar fate to his pal, an officer canie along and knocked'the bomb out of his hand with a stick. "It was a dry stick," they explained in chorus. (Loud laughter.) And so it went. But no serious information could I get. j Farther down the ward was Gunner j E. R. Davies, C�**A., of Ottawa, seated : on the side of tho bed with a piece of shrapnel in his foot. ,His battery had been firing 1S-pounders. It was harder work than the infantry, he told me, because "every time you move you have to dig a pit from your g'uns, and then a pit for yourself. If you go up at night, you work all night digging pits." It was a great game, though, getting your "angles, and knowing you were making direct hits--as at Arras, he said "We started our barrage at 2,006." Gunner Davies, before he took to firing, eighteen-pounders, was making lots of money, quite literally, in Ottawa, for he was with the American Bank Note Company. He's been In France two years. -His father and mother are at Nar-nmata, In the Okanagan Valley, so he thinks he will go west, after the war. � - Pte. F< D. Brace; R.C.R., of Sydney, C.B., had a belt ho got off a Prussian Guard. The buckle bore the inscription "Providentia Memoi-." ("Probably so!" thought I.) Curious how in these German belts, the rough, unpolished side of the leather is always BUY YOUR  BOYS'BOOTS AT THE HUDSON'S BAY turned^out. One of the Canadian boys drew my attention to this fact. The officer said ho was glad he was being taken prisoner, because he had a wife and two children in London,' and he counted on seeing them. "He could speak good English," raid the I Canadian. j A German Sergt.-Major, who wasj among thn^haul of prisoners, spoke to one of the Nova Scotia, boys saying "I know you. I've hpcii you in Halifax,", and he sent. a. message to a dod; lor In Halifax, whom he claimed to know, but the boys couldn't remember the doctor's name. He said he hud seen -Pte. Albert Hall of' the 2fith (Halifax) fall, but didn't know if he were killed, or just wounded. Tho 'Sorgt.-Major certainly seemed to know Halifax pretty well, the Canadians thought.  In . another ward was Pie. G. D. Bunnell ("Bunny Bonnell) of Ottawa who Jiad come over with the SOth and transferred to the 72nd and ho has a brother, Pte. H. E. Bonnell. in England somewhere with'^he Reserve: He had come over in March last, and the wounded brother was hoping to got in touch with him. though he feared lie might have been'drafted over to France, as he had not had a reply to his letter. "Bunny" was o mechanic before the war. "Over there" he had been a "run-( lier" anrl was "caught out" by a five-| nine which iiad exploded right, beside* him. Rc suit. "Bunny's" right hand was blown off. The nurse came, while I! v.-jih beside him, and poured some i liquid into a tube which w.'is attneh-eii lo the remaining iwilr.t closely wrapped with bandages. "Sinter's giving it. a drink," It-High-ed "Bunny" in reply lo my question. I "She floes that often." (It. v.-is an ;:p-: plication of tho Tiew Carrol-I.lnkln' Iroaimont. for wounds. I iennir.I lnl.-r.-li Bunny's going lo be all right.1 though, in spite of a missing hand; for one could see be has any amount of pluck. One must have to be u-ru'li' nor!
