MORE MEN WANTED.
to THE EDITOa. Sir, —It is evident that we arc going to have a rail to send more men to the Front, and, whatever our individual views may be ns to necessity for increasing our quota, once the call is made it becomes our duty to see that it is duly responded to. We must back up the good fellows we havo sent, and cannot desert them. I deplore the attacks made on those who will not. enlist; the use of hitter words docs no good whatever. It is a matter purely of organisation and a systematic canvass of the whole province. The speakers should be very carefully chosen, the position very carefully explained, and emphasis should he laid upon the impossibility of living undci German rule. The young man in out midst does not realise that the objective of our treacherous and brutal enemy is the dismemberment of onr great Empire. Fancy having to walk out of onr Dominion to poverty ami want! Why, it would he better for each of us to die a dozen deaths rather than yield to our treacherous and brutal enemy.
It is hard and dangerous work engaging in modern warfare, but that only means more honor; and after all, we "sun bred from a lighting strain. If a man is .1 physical coward there is no obligation upon him to enlist; but if r man is physically (it, and has no dependants, he must got into the fighting line or be branded as .1 cur for the rest, of his life—l am. etc.. Maxim. November 17.
