Church Club
On Tuesday evening was held
the monthly social evening ill the
church club- Mrs. Campbell who
has charge of this department provided an excellent menu of entertainment and refreshment. Two
readings of legends of our province
by Mrs. Hutchison were greatly
enjoyed. One feature of the evening iu wliicli everyone engaged
with zeal was the drawing contest-
No prize was awarded owing to all
having attained about the same degree of excellence, Mr. Burnett's
design is deserving of special mention.
Next Tuesday evening is iu
charge of the literary committee
and an evening with Shakespear is
planned. As this is the tercentin-
ery of the poet's death much attention this year has been drawn
to his works and.their influence on
Britain's Imperial expansion from
the time of Queen Elizabeth to the
present. The general public i> invited to be present .to find what
can be learned from a review of the
life and achievements of this, the
world's greatest dramatist.

AGCOD lubricant in lhe wrong place is just as bad as a poor
lubricant. For every part of every machine there is one
tight lubricant���and it is worth money to you to find it. It means
less money spent for oil and a longer life for your machine.
The Imperial Oil Company makes a special oil exactly suited
to every part.
Recommended by leading builders for all types of internal combustion engines,
whether tractor or stationary, gasoline or kerosene. It keeps ils body at
high temperature, is practically free from carbon, and is absolutely uniform in quality. ,
An excellent nll-rouiid lubricant for exposed bearings of harvesters and other
farm machinery.    Stays on the bearings; will not gum or corrode.
The most effective and economical lubricant for steam engine cylinders;
proven'superior in praclieai competition witli other cylinder oils.
A high-grade, thick-bodied oil for lubricating the loose bearings of farm
machinery, sawmill.-, and factory shafting.
Keeps the cool bearing cool. Does not depend on heat or friction to cause
it to lubricate.
STEEL BARRELS -All on;- oils cm be obtained in 28-gallon and 45 gallon
steel barrels. These barrels save their cost hy eliminating leakage.    Vou use every drop you pay for.    Clean and convenient.
If your lubricating problem  gives  you trouble, lei us

to itself the rigbt to have all wires placed underground and to have lumps sus-
pciulc'I from ncal iron pole, which meet
the approval of llle board of works.
It was argued thut it would be impossible to have all wires placed under
ground in a year and there was a clause ]
iu the new contract that the company
should place wires underground within
ten years of receiving notice In writing
from the corporation.
Another clause provided that there
should he nothing in the contract to
prevent tlle city from establishing and
using its own* electric light plant and
system, and this contract could be annulled at one year's notice.
In future the charges will be $38 a
year for II 600 c. p. lamp. $35 for a 4(10
c. p. lump and s.i.' for a 250 c. p. lamp,
the former charge being $38 for a ���ISO c.
p. lamp.
On the ornamental standard lighting
the charge would be le a kilewat hour.
Anxious to keep all ornamental lights
burning, General Manager Kidd offered
to Hive a discount of 25 per cent, for a
period of one year.
Changes in lamps had, it was pointed
out, resulted ill a great saving in consumption and therefore ill cost.
The city will have power, ill cases
where lamps are less than' 95 feet, to
take out standards aud equalize the distance between the others.
Mr. G. Porter, chief electrical engineer, stated emphatically, ill answer to the
chairman, thnl the company could not
grant n 1 l-2c rule. The city solictor
was instructed to draft the agreement,

Prohibition and
Agricultural Production
The farmer and fruit growers of
British Columbia will be cutting their
own throats if they vote for Prohibition.
Whisky is [doomed, but what we need
and must have is light beer, sparkling
cider and wines. There is no better
country the world over than B. C. to
produce the barley, hops, apples and
grapes for the fermentation of these
beverages. I happen to know that the
very best Three Star Cider made in
England, sparkling and equal to Champagne, is noted because of a blend of
Canadian apples with the English grown,
one in particular, the Baldwin, thousands of boxes being purchased through
the Liverpool merchants.

Is also n small 25c size. Dealers anywhere sell Nerviiine.

The Empire needs food. If you are not in the fighting line you may be in the producing line. Labour
is limited - all the more reason to do more than ever
before. Grow food for the men who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that
you can produce. Every little helps. You are responsible for your own work. If you
cannot produce as much as you would like, produce all you can. Work with the right
spirit. Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more
you produce the more you can save.    Producing and saving are war-service.
Make Your Labour Efficient
In wi'f nine do not waste time and energy on unim-
portant  and unprofitable   work.    Economize labour.
