RECRUITING.

TO THE EDITOB. Sir, —Whv reflect upon our men for not offering themselves for enrolment? Are tho men to blamo, or the authorities? Men are afraid to come forward for fear of being rejected. It is ridiculous to reject a mari for an ingrowing nail or bad teeth. Surely those could be removed. How many of tho non-commissioned officers havo earned the title? I know ot one man who had considerable experience in drilling, having lieen two years or more in a fire brigade." Ho left a good job—ho was earning 10s per day—and joined the infantry. 1 maintain that ho had more light to be made a " non-corn." than some wno received such appointments. I suppose tho voting man I refer to did not pneh his claim, or else ho had no friend to sneak for him. Until there _ is. more common sense in selection enthusiasm will slacken.—l am, etc., JrsncT. To An. Do-cember 23.
