DEATH OR LIFE?-WHICH CHOOSE YOU? ly W. I1. Lewis if we are to acept't the cell theory; the theory that sulstan'ce is composed of countless thll,isandls of cells, then the question arises: whein fioEs deIath EuneT Is it upon us before thei heart hI:s cnased its beating? Or is life with its after the breath has left the body? IIf von, are not as heavy as you was a month atgo, thIen it. itmlist be that some of the cells of your body have died. For the body to take on more cells to take the place of the ones that have died and are ldying, you imust have food. You must have lie foodI that is favorable to cell growth. If :v,'o are not. getting this food you are dying! \Any tiime that more vells are dlying than are being evolvedl you are to that extent dead. Now, our class does not get the food neces sary to maintain life (cell growth.) Our death rate is higher thlan is the dheath rate of the well Exlosunre. luck ,of food,,. intemperancee and hIard lahbor all contrilith l. their part toward cell death.

But here in Belfast war means ab solute deadness. The streets are thronged with people, because all industry is paralyzed for lack of men. All night long, for two nights, I thousands of white men, soon to be converted r into fertilizer, have been loaded into boats and sailed away across the Channel. All the Chan nel boats of any size have been impressed by a the Government. If I hadn't caught this boat I it is unlikely that I would have another chance f to leave Ireland. And I simply couldn't stand I it. Tonight on my corner were six lovely cow ea yed creatures, each with child, and weeping bitterly. One of the men had been well "treated" by his companions and was hardly I able to stand. His pretty wife was very pa 1 tient with him. The men were all rather ex hilarated. But these sturdy, laughing women I who were walking the streets a few days ago Iwith their heads thrown back-they laugh no more. There isn't as much weeping as you i, would expect. They are a very proud people. t O4ne looks up dry-eyed and says, "I have six children and my husband has gone." One says, I, "-v lbrother has gone and left his wife with s- tvri. I doubt they have as much as one pound 1 put by." Sugar doubled in price as soon as R war was declared, and all provisions soared. I stoppeld and spoke to a handsome man who s haId just received notice to report. He said by 1 Friday there would not be a single able-bodied -man left in Belfast.' lie said I was safe here B as anywhere, but he thought I might have a hietter chance to get in touch with my own f (ove.rnment across the Channel; which is what n 1 think, mnyself. Besides, he said if I didn't leavte tonight he was afraid I wouldn't have s another chance. The prospect of living in dirt, P discomlfort, and misery was too much. I It's pathetic to see the men trying to comfort t the women. War is exciting; an unknown ad venture for the men-new scenes, new life, new 't conditiions, certain excitement. For the women r - -well, just imagine women wlho could hardly crake ends nueet and newver save a penny! .Just ri imagine tlihen now with a houseful of little, n lihngry I,ahies to feed and no money anywhere.

They sat in all their pomp and power And broad humanity. It was Comrade. this and Comrade that And "Comrade, you are first." And "Comrade, let me help you. Ere with eloquence you burst." Just then a man rose up in front And "Comrades," says, says he. "We're gathered here this blessed day. To consider our arm-y." "Our Comrades, 'cross the Channel, They're arming to the teeth. We must grab them by their hairy throats, We must shake them off their feet." It was Comrade this and Comrade that And "Comrade, let me shake." And "Comrade, you're a poltroon When the Fatherland's at stake." I walked the streets of Paris And I hadn't walked so far, Ere the thought was born within me: The nation's going to war. Beneath a spluttering torch-light, For the day was turning dark, A Red was loudly shouting, And I stopped to hear him bark. It was Comrade this and Comrade that, "But our German comrades! God! We must bayonet them and burn them We must plant them 'neath the sod." For, Comrades, you're my brother, No matter what your -ality, But you're a hissing, crawling serpent When it comes to boundary. I stood upon the battle field And watched the spitting flow Of life-blood from the Saxon And his stalwart Teuton foe. And Comrade this and Comrade that Had drenched themselves again; They had done their masters' bidding And were nnumbered 'mongst the slai. Now, many words could type this sheet Of what I saw across the sea. But, what's the use of wording When it comes to you and me. For Comrade this and Comrade that, It sounded very fine. The h,oml has hurst beneath you, You are swallowed in a mine. And the cant that turned to cannon, And the hand-clasp, that was mailed. WVill record unto ages, The lphilosophy that failed.
