of business on Friday evening
when they served chicken suppers
from 6 to 10 o'clock, Upwards of
200 people availed     themselves    of
the opportunity to have supper
with the ladies. The tables were
Well laden with all kinds of delicious viands, all home made, and it
was almost impossil Ie for mortal
���.nan to resist lhe itnportuuations of
the bevy of handsome young lady
waitresses to "have some more.1'
The net receipts were in the neighborhood of $40, which must be very
gratifying to the ladies, who desire
to thank all those who contributed

The Bishop preached at the morning service at S. Andrew's, Sandwick, jn the occasion of the dedication of a memorial window 10
Mr and N rs. Oliver Duncan, At
the conclusion of his sermon tlie
Bishop announced, what must have
come as an unpleasant surprise to
the cotigrtgatii 11. namely, that
their Vicar was leaving shortly to
take over the parish of Vernon, In
making the announcement the Bishop expressed the regret he felt
that Mr. Laycock was leaving not
only Sandwick but also the diocese
and dwelt on tiie advancement in
clinch work that had taken place
iu the district during the two years
of his incumbancy. He added that
it was only after verv careful con-
rideration the decision had been arrived at, but that the Bishop of
Kootenay, in whose diocese Vern ���:
lies, had made such strong representation that tlie decision was inevitable. Vernon is a large aid
important parish whose present in-
CUinbeut is leaving as chaplain to
niie of the Overseas regiments and
the Bishop was unable to find a
suitable successor 111 his own diocese 10 fill the vuiancy,

if we now all cling together like the ivy on the garden wall
and veto Prohibition. M- 11, women and children will lie si en

Editor Colonist:
Sir: While my motto is "never fiollto learn" the
writers on Prohibition have failed to convince me lhat they
are right. What ippeals to me is the common sense business
t ii| of that man Lloyd Gi . wh i'i 1 ;"\;,i 1 lo "- de] station representing lhe Teippei in e Coum il ol Chn lian Churches 011 the 10th March said il was a question of letting men
puisne their avocation under conditions which would ^increase
their self respect, and make them feel that gelling drunk was
below the dignity of theii manhood. He felt it to I "his
painful duty lo beco ne lhe greatest distiller in tlie world, and
he was doint; i;1.- best to provide whiskey for lhe Germans,
and if th< whiskey pellets he wa.s distilling f r them would do
half as 1 nn to the   Germans as they   li   I done to the
people of this country he should be satisfi , H further

feel sure if these industrious workers, and the like of them,

they are bum in, and that is the reason why we should start
ai the bottom rung ol the ladder to achieve that which Lloyd
George outlines, which, moreover, is just what my late employer the Baioness Burdelt CoiUts, used to do by taking
supper at Xmas, with these costers and inviting them in hundreds Id a picnic in her c uiutry grounds in tin summer,
Tt has occured to ine, whether out of respect. for that
good old lady, who, by the way, gave a church to Victoria in
the early struggling days, the Prohibitionists will pause and
fall into line with the views of her ladyship, and which have
been .-.o recently endorsed by Lloyd George and hundreds of
others���the wisest men and women of the day- some aloft and
others still below, that il is against human nature to reform a
m;it.' on this drink question b\ drastic law measures, I leel
sure if they will agree to give remedial measures a trial and
call the bar a restraurant or cafe with all Kinds of refreshments, beer, wines and non-alcoholics���no treating���with a
specially appointed liquor control board, it will be an excep-
ti6nal case to see a tottering man through dunk ou the streets
in ten if not five years hence.
J shall await anxiously their decision.

heart, or inactivity of liver and bowels.
When nerve force fails every organ of the
body becomes more or less deranged. Indigestion, sleeplessness, headaches, irritability and
nervousness are sonic of the first indications.

weak and listless. As time goes on you become more and more helpless,
until nervous prostration or collapse bring you to tlie sick bed. and long
