73 "The Shetlanders come nearer to the English than to the Scotch in figure and features, and even in the colour of their hair, which is rarely either black or violently red, and most commonly of a brownish yellow."

The features and expression of countenance of this people could not be better described than in the words of an accomplished Shetland clergyman, the late Rev. John Bryden of Sandsting, who says? "They are of middle stature and well proportioned, having brown or yellow hair; their features are rather small than otherwise, and without that harshness which is characteristic of the Anglo-Saxon descent."

A mischievous hobgoblin, similar to or identical with the Water-Kelpie, is thus described by the Rev. Mr. Brydon of Sandsting, in his account of Shetland superstitions:
" There is a 'trow' (a kind of spirit) called a Neogle, somewhat akin to the water-kelpie of other lands, who makes his appearance about mills, particularly when grinding, in the shape of a beautiful pony. That he may attract the attention of the person who acts the part of miller, he seizes and holds fast the wheel of the mill; and, as is natural, the miller goes out to examine into the cause of the stoppage, when, to his astonishment, a beautiful pony, saddled and bridled, is standing, and ready to be mounted. Who but an old miller could let slip such a fair opportunity for a ride? But if he should neglect warnings, and unguardedly put his foot in the stirrup, his fate is sealed. Neither bit nor bridle avail him anything. Off goes the pony, bog or bank arrest not his course, till in the deep sea he throws his rider, and himself vanishes in a flash of flame. But some millers are proof against the temptation, having been taught caution by the fate of others; and, instead of taking a ride, salute his Neogleship with a fiery brand through the lightning-tree hole, which makes him immediately scamper away." From the supposed diabolical practices of this hobgoblin, may have arisen the saying concerning a doubtful person, " He is not to ride the water on."

78 3,141 Canadian women volunteered to join the war effort for Canada. Most of these single women were high school graduates and carried nursing diplomas. An average age of 24 years old, many were sent overseas to areas such as Britain, France, Egypt and Greece.
Under the Canadian military, the women were given the rank of Lieutenant. They were given the title of Nursing Sisters, similar in name only to the religious
nurses' title. As Lieutenants, the women received generous pay and vacations. Of the 3141 nurses 46 died.

August 13, 1915 From: Mary McNaughton, NURSING SISTER ENJOYS RIDE ON CAMELS
A nurse from this district who is at Cairo with Queen's Stationary Hospital writes an interesting letter to friends in which she says: Captain Towers is one of our medical officers. He chaperoned Miss Brydon, Miss Armstrong and I out to the pyramids the other day. Of course we had a camel to take us around when we got there, and it was great fun getting on and off. We had our picture taken in front of the sphinx. They are very good but we only got two each as they are quite a large size....
