year of the war, that if you came to

by day you knew by the women in uni?
Many women, in all manner of uni?
forms, pass you in the street, from

about those new businesses which war

Women in I nfamiliar Posts
It is not only that women have re?

they have taken their places at work,
which before the war they had never

At the Board of Agriculture, at the
i Beard of Trade, at the Ministry of '
Munitions, at the office of the National
Service, the work of women is organ?
ized and controlled by women. There
are women at the head of the nursing
-ervices of the navy and the army and
, the lied Cross, and there are British
' women in charge of hospitals in all the
eonntriae of the Allies.
We remember in time of war that It
was a woman who led France out of her
deepest extremity; that it was a woman
who governed Kngland in the days of'
her greatest adventures, of the begin- I
nmg of her empire, of the opening of
the seas of the world.
But if you would see the portrait of
the Knglish won.an as the war han found
her you must look in a book of the
la-t gnat war of Kurope a hundred
vears ago Curiously enough, it is in a
book which, though written at the time
o*' '.var. do?? no' mention war, but is a
?..-aeeful comedy of Fngli-h man:., r
It is the tigure of Mr?. Croft in Miss
Austen'? ??per-uasion?." She had "been
all over the leas of the world with her
hoiband, the admiral, and was as capa?
ble of handling a frigate as he. "She
bal a s?|uari-ness, uprightness and
. ?goat of form which gave importance
to her person. . . . Her manners
were open, easy, decid-d. like one who
bad no distrust of herself, and no doubt
v. bal to do."
That is the authentic portrait of the
modern Fnglish woman, capable in dati- '
ger, equable in difficult circumstances,
abo m tin? war has worked with eager
noai Bad resolution at home, afraid
neither of new labors nor of great re- '?
bility. and who is to be found in
th- boapitall at all the Allied front?.
She is working m France, in Italy, in
Rttsaia, in Serbia, it; Montenegro, in
