Burns, acting chief clerk, applied to be removed to a higher class, which means an increase in salary. He is now in Class III. Mr. Ashmole, borough treasurer, re- marked that there would have to be a reorganisation of the whole staff-, and suggested it would 'be better to deal with, this application then.

GERMANYS LOST ISLANDS
GERMANY'S LOST ISLANDS Australian Troops' Work in the Jungle. (Passed by Cansor.) While the operations of the Allies in Europe command general attention, it is always interesting to hear of the loyal I services rendered the British Empire in distant fields. Private Fred Davies, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Griffith Davies. Alolon House. Llandyssul, who is attached to the Australian Expeditionary Force now in occupation of Gorman New Guinea, sends the following further interesting letter to his parenHi All the isla.nds in the Bismarck Archipelago have to be scoured. The main object is to see if any more Germans are in hiding, and if more arms or ammuni- tion are hidden away. Some of our sconts report that there ara miles of dense jungle ,nd high and steep ridges to climb. Very likely, in some districts we shall be the first white men to go through. i so the natives have a treat in store to see us, and we are sure to get an interest- ing time. German money is still current. All the and officials, of course, are soldiers. Among this Australian Expedi- tionary Force are a few WUsh (about eight), a few Scotch, Irish. English, Canadians, Americans, New Zeahnder, two Frenchmen, a.nd two Boers, while the gTeat majority have never seen England. Yet, a1th)ngh from all parts of the ?orld, i we a,re a happy crowd. all fighting for a right and just cause."

DEVOTED DUCHESS ii.. UI iU",u.ùù R&vesihil! Soldier's Tribute to Patriotic Lady. i j (Passed by Censor.) Lance-Corporal W. Cia:rke, Bavenhill, has been lr. elided home in consequence! of a shrapnel wound. At the outbreak of the war he rejoined his old regiment, viz., the 4th King's Own Royal Lancastfcrs, j with which he had previously seen over 13 rears' service. He proceeded to the front in November. Armxaentieres, Ypres, j and La Bassee were the scenes of his! varied experiences, four days in the trenches being followed bJ foU' days off. Throughout the time the fighting was of a continuous ijature, which was strikingly1 described by Clarke, who, however, pre- ferred speaking of others to saying much about himself, as is generally the cago with the true. soldi sr. 1 which npxess i tate,-l The shrapnel wound, which necessitated his being invalided home, fell to his lot. on Jan. 15 while in the act of removing his wounded comrades from a barn. A com- pany of the King's Own, including Lance- Cnrpora.l Clarke, had received orders to occupy the barn, and they immediately set to work to fortify the position. A! German shell, however, found the barn, with the result that its occupants at the time were wounded, one, Corporal Smith, being in a precarious condition. • Lance- Corporal Clarke proceede d on hands and knees along the communication trenches in order to bring out the wounded, and had half accomplished the ta.sk when another shell pierced the roof and wounded him in the shoulder. r He was conveyed to the Duchess of Westminster's wnr hospital at La Tour.uet, where he received such clever treatment that he was homeward bound in less than a month. He. spoke in glow- ing terms cf the excellent work done by the Red Cross Sisters at the hospitals and on the trains, every, hina: possible being done to mitigate the sufferings of the wounded. The Duchess; and her mother contributed largely to the comfort of all concerned. Every day the former visited the wounded, provided cigarettes for those who smoked, wrote letters for those un- able to do so, and did everything within the province of her ability in the direction of making incoming wounded men com- fortable. The nurses often worked for 20 out of 24 hours.
