Ottawa. Sept. 2a-The second Canadian tank battalion, which for some time past It.is been quietly organizing at l'ctawawa Cump, Is now nearly ready to embark for overseas. The formation of this battalion Is another siep toward the establishment of a Canadian tank brigade. The personnel of the second battalion has, been drawn from artillery units which have been training at IVtuwtiwa Camp. A certain number of artilbiry olllcers have volunteered for the tank service and application from a number of others have been received from military districts throughout Canada. The second lank battalion will have for its provisional couiniundm' M. A. Cameron, an artillery ollleer from l'ctawawa, who will take the unit overseas. Uorty iion-cotiimiKsioned olllcers and men have been spocinlly .selected from artillery units with a view to training ns olllcers. They will not receive their commissions In Canada, but will be sent overseas, and receive further training at Hexhill. Ktig-laud, before holng grunted their rank us olllcers. The tank battalion In made up of '.ill olllcers, 41 stuff serg- eants and .".-li; other lanks. In addition, one medical iitlicer and tlve other ranks are attached to thu unit. This is, the tank unit to which Geo. McKlllop. the well known local boy, transferred from the 78th Uattery. The above would indicate that ho i� Blaf ed for a commission in the tanks, and ll is a tribute to hit ability that ho has been chosen. RAILWAY SERVICE With the absolute silence which pervades the vicinity of the railway commissioners, the agitation for a return of the daily service on the Coutls and Cardstou branches seems to hnvo come lo a standstill. Cardstou, Mn-gralh and Kayinotid people aro not saying much, bin they are thinking a great deal and they will continue to agitate until the service Is raplaceil. Travel on the Hue is very light, nnd the use of automobiles Is greater than ever. So far the roads have been good for autonioblllng ami the Inconvenience caused has not been us groat as it will he later when wiuter iota in. t Outside the mall and express a grant deal of Inconvenience Is caused by the lack of a means for dally shipments of crcnin. Some farmers In I ho district are losing heavily through being forced to sell I heir cream locally in a sour elate instead of shipping th� sweet cream to LothbrldRO.
