French soldier, according to Kathleen
Burke In “The White ltoad to Ver-

the philosophy of the man in the ranks:
Of two tilings one Is certain—either
you’re mobilized or you're not motd-

If you're not wounded there is no

If you’re wounded slightly there Is

seriously of two things one is certain-

The pocket is laid to the right bf the

between the pocket and undersieeve

Fifth.-BeoaH.se a woman must raise
her son to be a man, n»d tha (^implies,
when he is full grown, his own control
over his own destiny-and his individual
fulfilment, of his duties aud obligations.
If Ms duty calls him to be a soldier he
is in less danger, if he is physically
a lid mentally trained from boyhood,
than if lie were left unprepared and
unfit. The potential soldier Is the bet-
ter man in any position.
Sixth.—Because, if it is the part of
every man to hold his life at stake for
protective duty to the state, it is the
part of every^womau to hold her life's
treasures at stake for the same duty.
She has uo right in time of peri! to
live under the protection of other wo-
men’s sons. She must give active help
and personal sacrifice. To shirk indi
vidual obligation Is to incur an indi-
vidual penalty 1b the loss of self re-
spect and spiritual force.

one at Bristol which was in use as

were consigned to it every night.
Even more trident was Warwick jail

1707. It was an octagonal dungeon
twenty-one feet in diameter and al-
most nineteen feet underground. In
the middle was n cesspool, nnd beside

the prisoners for drinking purposes.
To this awful cell forty two men were
