Canadians have a-peculiar claim upon that line, -^Shei paths of glory lead but to the grave," for it, is history that, before,.the capture of Quebec Xwhlch was most decisive in its consequences .for the future of Canada), General Wolfe quoted this stanza arid exclaimed, that he would rather bathe author of that poem than take Quebec! ... . That has been one of the romantic facts learned by us all as school children. How few of those same school boys ever dreamt that they, wounded in far greaterj battles, would be convalescing in the very home of the writer of those lines. Thomas Gray, poet and philosopher, has immortalized by his Elegy, the quaintly . named village of Stokc-Poges with its venerable church; so much so, that the surrounding country is spoken of as '.'Gray's country." thus, that' one frequently designates in'Spijiglana the scenes of well-known literary achievements.

The manager of the Kingston, Portsmouth and Cntaruqul Electric Railway Company swung around in lils chair, and, sure enough, there was a tall, hnndsomo young woman looking down at him appcallngly. For a moment Mr. Hugh C. Nlcltle was taken aback at tho daring request, but a twinkle Boon came into his eyes as Ills look of surprise wore off.

Here was a 6'oung lady anxious to do a patriotic service in a tlnioi of need and release a man for the service of King aiid country. She was healthy and vigorous and apparently quite able to assume tho now duties. Her earnestness did much to convince the perplexed superintendent' that she would "make good," and the name of Miss Maud Chart, the first conduc-torette in Canada, was added to r'the payroll of the company on October 15, 1917. * ;- Since that date eleven morei.girls have entered the ranks of the ,"con-ductorcttes- and. the even dozen are just one big, happy family-a unique sight as they come tripping' down, the main street, laughing and joking, each morning on the way to the street car barns for the day's work. 'There are no male conductors in the, service of the company now, and the ladies have amply justified tho liopea and expectations of Mr. Nlckle for the success of his novel experimont. \ GirU Made Good THROUGH tho bitter winter and the hot summer they haveVper-formed their duties so creditably that they have won the approbation of even the most pessimistic. 'From the very first, of course, thero'were some staid, old-fashioned gentlemen who said that Mr. Nlckle had; been foolish to give the girls an opportunity to show their ability. - Men had always been conductors on Kingston street cars, and men should always be conductors, according to their views, and not even a great war should make a change. .

They'll-come to an early end, poo'r dears." AVhat a dismal picture those pessimists did delight to paint! But' fhey looked at the situation -from the wrong angle, and they are just, now-getting the right perspective.'.- The girls did meet with discouraging;difficulties, but even in the most trying days, when their fingers wero' blue with the cold, they carried on and collected the fares for ten liours at a atretch. { ' Their Uniform* merhout^s-� stone, shelter cm whose j g^if't� from Spanish blood of long ago. roof stanne a cross.
