In A Red Triangle Dug-Out Overseas
.. ■ ..W ■■ ;l. ’
Y. M. C. A. men fixed up dug-outs with our men on the French front in the had old days before the
armistice was signed, and it became possible for the American veterans to take their recreation out in the
open. Here in the dimly lighted underground rooms, refreshments were served, and an opportunity was
given the boys to write home, indoor games were played and occasionally some more athletic games such
as boxing. It was even possible sometimes to put on a moving picture show for the boys in their time off
from actual trench duty.

Term “The Public.”
What we understand today by the
terra “the public” did not exist during
antiquity, us It presupposes a great
number of simultaneous readers of one
and the same writings, a condition
that could not be realized before the
invention of printing. The first book
that may be said to have had a public
In the sense us now understood was
the printed Bible. The essential In
atmment, however, for the formation
of “a public,” journalism, did not ap
pear before the French revolution.
Those whe escape discipline are to

leviations for the hours between these

leave It to parents, school masters, po

Strange Street Names.
What Is the quaintest street name
you know of In London, past or pres
ent? It would probably be hard, re
lates the London Chronicle, to heat
Sballlgonaked street, which, according
to the late Sir Laureuce Comma's evi
dence before the local records com
mittee, appears as the name of a street
In Wapping in a sewers rate book for
1748. In those days the naming of a
street was not in the hands of a sedate
public authority, hence the oddity of
aome of these old names.
We are all given to making mis
takes. No one is wise enough to be
always right. But the person who
makes the same mistake twice has his
feet set straight for the goal of fall
ure. If you are called down for mak
ing a blunder don’t get mad or dis
couraged. Just make up your mind
then and there that you’ll not make
It again. Fix it well In your mind;
use It as a lesson and nn inspiration.
It’s a perfectly good stepping-stone,
and ought, not to be employed as a
millstoue to bang around your neck.

Use of Surnames.
The custom of using surnames for
Christian names, as exemplified in the
eases of Harrison and Mr. Holden,
goes back at least three centuries, but
the people stuck pretty close to Johns,
Edwards and Thomases. In this coun
try we have seen a tendency to use, at
baptism, the mother’s family name as
a middle name for the child. This, no
doubt, is leading to more free use of
family names as given names. For the
most part, however, we are John Hea
Steam Against Sails.
Modern naval development may be
said to have begun with the rapid in
crease in the size of ships which took
place at the close of the fifteenth cen
tury; and mediaeval history finally
closed with the battle of Lepanto in
1571, the last great action in which
rowing galleys played an important
part. From this time the sail-pro
pelled man-of-war was gradually im
proved until early in the nineteenth
century, when sails began to give way
