JACK MTJNRO IS
AT THE FRONT
While In Montreal recently Jack
Curley picked up the following letter
from Jack Munro to Chtfrles Spcar
manfl of Halleybury, Ont The ex
miner scrapper is at present a mem
ber of the Princess Pats, having en
listed in the Canadian regiment and
quit the Cobalt mining section to
go to the font Muuroe is best re
membered in pugilistic circles as the
man who defeated Sharkey at Phila
delphia and James Jeffries in a box
ing bout at Butte. Mont., later meet
ing defeat at his hands in San Fran
cisco.
One paragraph of the letter refers
to the Willard-Johnson fight at Ha
vana. which proves that the boys at
the front are keeping in close touch
with the rest of the world. The let
ter was written in Flanders April
13. but it took a week before the
postmark was stamped on the envel
ope.
The letter in part reads as follows:
"Just got your letter as I was1
leaving the billet for the trenches for
a four hours' stay; decided to take
my writing tablet along. Half the
regiment was sent to the firing lino
and half to the dugout supporters,
which are always from 250 to 400
yards behind the first-line trenches,
so here I am in the dugouts, scratch
ing away, to you?tomorrow the other
half go in, but I write just the same.
We aro located in much better dug
outs and trenches than wo were be
fore?nice and dry and a large beau
tiful pine woods at our back, and we
have the Germans at a down-hill pull
as our trenches arc comparatively
free from danger
"A short way to our right was
what was known as the "wood of
death', which ies a wood of perhaps
35 or 40 acres, with nothing left but
a tangle of broken young pine trees,
broken shells and German kits and
uniforms. I like this bush, of course,
as usually we can walk about unob
served and feel quite at home, and
although bullets 'whiz' here and
there, we seldom get hit. Some days
they seem to follow a person all
around, while other days a person
never hears them. Now today I
wanted a nice quiet place to write,
and got permissfon to walk over to
a bramble of trees and apparently
out of sight 1 had just sat down
when I heard "whiz" at ray feet 1
didn't like to move, but when anoth
er dropped near me I took up ray
bed' and walked. I had to move a
second time also, an another landed
? near me. I was fussy about being
? disturbed and made up my mind I'd
not move again. So far 1 have kept
my promise, although I have several
other letters to write, but think I
am out of the line of fire.
"I sec Jack Johnson got 'his.' and'
more power to the winner is all I
can say in his behalf! I am not go^
ing to fill both of these pages?too
many 'splitterings' going on around
here.
"w nen cuuuiik iuivukh j? wou
night we ran into Canadian troops,
the Fifth BatalHon. We marched
with them a block, and coming to
a square they marched one street
and we took another. When depart
ing each platoon cheered the other.
I tell you it was good to hear Canad
ian cheers again?many were absent
who heard the (cheers) last at Salis
bury Plains. When we left for the
shores of France five batalllons lined
the road for some miles and cheered
us as we marched by. I wondered
at the time how many would be mis
sing when the next Canadian cheer
was heard We heard them sooner
than I expected.
"I hope you will have patience with
me while I scribble these few lines
You know the Bosch is shooting at
me from all directions, and since
starting here?with this page?a shell
burst near me and I walked over
and picked up the enclosed fragment.
You can see where it struck the
ground and was still smoking hot as
I pickod it up. They are shelling our
wood, and we have lost two men in
j wounded in the last hour.
"Wish you would induce some
benevolent lady to make a nice large
Canadian pic and enclose it in a ci
gar box or something?make it square
to fit the box?this is not a joke.
We get a craving for nice home-made;
Canadian pies here; any kind will
do.
"Getting short of nejvs. Regards
to all the boys. Will perhaps write
again soon. It is hard on the nerves

ing and I am better pleased each time
I visit the mine, as tho work being

I larged mill for eight months.
"The new mill recently installed
will be started up as soon as the ex

I plant will bring the daily capacity
of the mill to between 60 and 70
tons and the output will be greatly

tance of 100 feet.?(Valdcz Pros
