'� "With the Canadian Force?. Sept. II. -(By mail from J. F. B. Livesay. Canadian Press Correspondent.)- Fighting a battle is as much a concentrated business as a Christmas mail order service. Every department xmuii function or the whole will fall to pieces. Before a shot is fired, the work of the general staff is completed "Many days and nights have been em commander and Is technical advisor to the latter on questions of intercommunication. He is responsible for the organization and efficiency of the signal communication in the corps area. This includes the co-ordination of the divisional and artillery communications and the personnel employed thereon. The corps signal company is responsible for communications with flank troops, divisions and heavy artillery; for the construction and maintenance of all air line routes in tiie corps-for the use of the artil-j !ery divisions, flying corps, balloon I section-?, anti-aircraft, tramways and | to all corps and army troops, amiuu-j nition 'dumps and supply depots. Simi-i larly. divisional signal companies look after all communications in their sector. The compSuies are roughly divide'.', into the following branches: Telephone and telegraph; wireless telegraph; interception and policing sections; visual signalling sections: ployed in preparation and it s onlv !Hir line sections; cable sections when the battle staTts that its members can lean back in their chairs and take a moment of ease. They prepare the plan; the execntion ef the plan is left to others. Daring the preparation of battle, a tremendous strain is placed upon signallers who must keep all sections in touch with headquarters. Nor is that all. they must maintain eninterruptefl the aH-important liason between infantry and artillery. A loss of communication at a critical moment of the advance must mean the useless sacrifice of many lives. The preparatory part of signallers too is extremely exacting. As the intelligence is the eyes, so signallers are the ears of the geueral staff. A good illustration is furnished by the record of operation established by the Canadian Signal Service on Sunday, .Sept. 10, when preparations were completed for the assault next morning on the famous Queant-Drocourt line. On that day. 7S11 telegraph messages and dispatches were fiandled to say nothing of the corps telephone service. The Canadian. signal service in France is administered by the assistant director of army signals, who is directly under the orders of the corps NOW IN STOCK GLUTEN-FEED 100 LB.

Oct. 5.-The Ottawa Citi-*n today says: "The cable dispatches from overseas indicating heavy losses among the Canadian forces are likeiy to cause renewed consideration" as to having reinforcements. The classes called up under the amended Military Service act have pretty well gone overseas and if more are needed an additional call seems in prospect. The government has come to no decision yet whether to call up the second class, abolish more exemptions or summon the 25^000 who have attained 20 years of age-recently.

The work of a dispatch rider, especially in the winter or in the for-' ward area, is extremely difficult and hazardous on account of bad roads and shell fire.
