Sorry, no etymologies found.
Go out into the supply camp and look at "the grub pile" – the great quarters of beef, naked and rosy – turn over the jagged vertebræ of a Manitoban range-ox and wonder however it grew; poke your fingers into sacks of rolled oats for "halesome parritch," rice, beans, and flour; poke two fingers, three if you like, into the raisins, prunes, peaches and syrup, and then put them in your mouth.
