In the course of a tew weeks the

few mom.nts could be spent profitab
ly ln thinking of the Empire Movement and all what that meane. To
find this real meaning we must go
back to the year 1908 and to the
founder of tbe movement, the Right
Honourable, tbe Earl of Meatb, K,
P., who placed before the -Empire the
following grand ideal.
MOTTO—Ono King, Cue Flag, One
Fleet, One Empire.

"It la an effort to awaken tbe poo-

"generation which will pay more need
"than the present to the responsibilities enta'led by partnership in such
"a mighty confederation of nations
"as that over which the King reigns.
"It endeavors to broaden the ideas
-'and sympathies of tbe subjects of

"be their colour, nationality, creed
"or class. It recognizes, that knowledge and patriotism, aa well ae
"charity, Bhould begin at home, but
"tbat, like charity, they should not
"end there.
" 'The Kmuire Movement' calls up-
"on all British subjects to love and
"fear of Ood, honor the king, to obey
"all tbe laws, to prepare themselves
"to advance the highest interests ot
"tbe Empire in peace and war; to

WASA, B.C Second Annual Oeneral Meeting APRIL 18th. KM'*
P. Moflatt, the proprietor, had closed
the store for tbe evening and was delivering goods, when the Ure was dls-
covered. The origin of the fire is
supposed to be from a cigar left on
one of the tables by a foreigner, who
was purchasing somo goods just belore tbe closing of the store. Owing
to the combustible nature of the
goods on the table tbe fire spread rapidly, Thc department made a record run and soon hnd the flames under control. Tbe damage to tbe stock
will not exceed 8200. The building
was somewhat damaged, nls0 two
large plate glass windows broken,
Great praise is due tbe fire depart
ment for the manner in which the
fire was handled, just sufficient wnter
was used to eitinguisb the fire, and
the -principal part of- the etock is
practically uninjured.

A chinaman, (name unknown), suffered a serious accident on Baker St.
Friday afternoon. It appears he was
minding a team ot horses tor a man
while he went into tbe post office,
something startled the horses and be
grabbed Uie reins, but only clutched
one and the horsos In turning threw
tbe contents of the rig and tbe chinaman on the sidewalk, several went
to his assistance and Dr. King was
called. On Dr. King examining tbe
man, it was found he had broken bis
thigh joint, so be was taken to the
hospital Immediately, where hotter
attendance could be given him.
Another Revolution?
London.—The Peking correspondent
of tbs Dally Mall sends tbo following:
Tbe senate has rsjected tbe five powers loan contract. No excitement hns
been aroused here, but there is grsat
tension at Shanghai, where Dr Sun
Yat Sen. tbe formor provisional president, and other loaders have been
personally culling on foreign firms
snd trying to purchase arms for their
party to the amount of millions of
dollars. They are conspiring to start
another revolution, which would pro
yoke foreign Intervention and end
China's Independence.
The Agricultural Grant
We confess to being unable to ses
the point of the objection token l»
the Opposition to tbe passage of the
Bill appropriating $10,000,000 In aid
of agriculture. If It were propossd
to vote tbis sum in a lump to be expended In tbe discretion of the Minister, sucb a policy might he open to
question; but nothing ot the kind Is
Intsnded. The amounts to bs spent
from year to year wlll be Included
the Supply Bill, and hefore they are
passed, the House can demand a lull
explanation of how the pre.louu appropriation to be done with tbo
amount asked for. The advantage of
having the wbole sum declared In advance, to be available In yearly In
stnlmsnts, will bs that tha Minister
can prepare his plans accordingly,
and this Is a matter of no small Importance, Mr. Martin Burrell, hy the
manner In which he hns approached
this and the other aspects of the
sphere of bis departmental work, has
produced a very favorable Impression,
and we are satisfied that ths way In
which tie will carry out his policy
wlll greatly enhance hli reputation.-

Mayor of Cranbrook, B. C.
In view of the very serious charges made by the local press of your
city against the Municipal Police when arresting two Indians, viz., Michel
and Abraham of the St. Mary's band; I consider it my duty to ask for an
investigation by yourself and the Police Commissioners, and would suggest
that the same be held next week so that I can be present.

Triple Entente Tends to Modify Attitude—Possible
-boards for the Future
The following leader recently published ln Tbe Times Is extremely Interesting and signitlcunt, nud cannot
fall to stimulate conjectures regarding tbe evolution which seems to bo
gradually taking place tu Great Britain's policy toward China. Many
contemporaneous events Intimate thut
England's relation to the Triple Entente tends to modify tier attitude
toward Cur Eastern problems. Per
baps somo sign-boards ot her future
courss may bs found lu the comments
of Ths Times.
The vast region of Mongolia, the
birth-place of hordes which have time
and again altered ths current of history, hns definitely ceased to he part
of ths Chinese Ilepubllc. Such ls the
purport of the Parliamentary paper
Issusd last week, containing the Ilus-
s»-Mongolian agrsemont and protocol
signed last November. One ot the articles ol ths Agreement discusses the
possibility tbat "the Mongolian Government" may find it necessary to
conclude a separate treaty "with Uht-
nn or another foreign power." There
could be no blunter statement ot
eomplsts ssverance, Mongolia does
not merely become autonomous. Ml
vestiges of Chlnono suxoralnty vanl.h;
Russia even undertaken to asalst Mongolia In preventing Ui > admission of
obincse troops and colonists. Tho
process by which tho edges of the
Oobl Desert were bring brought under ths plough by Chinese settlers Is
perhaps permanently arrested, though
It Is not yet certain. At any rate

i to be colored with Chines., yellow.
A new stats lias been born In Asia,
though In reality It Is u partial rev.
vol of a very old Stat... As In Turkey, the real Arst fruits of revolution
in China have therefore been huge
looses of territory. In each euse tho
sudden Introduction of representative
government Into an Oriental country
has led to a palulul awakening. The
people In certain areas wished to be
represented,  but not in ths capital
Inhabitants of Macedonia eought union elsewhere. The princes and nobles
ot Mongolia wanted to make their
territories Independent and naked lor
the help ot Russia. Clearly the leaders of Mongolia cut themselves oil
from China ol their own tree will.
They eald they bad been conquered
by the Manchus, but the Munohu dynasty had been overthrown and they
were not prepared to bow tbe knee
to a Chinese President. There la evidence that they bave been handled
unwisely. The Peking authorities
were well aware that the new administration would not exercise the same
glamor over tbe Mongols ua the fallen dynasty had dune. They therefore
tried to extend their control hy vigorously pressing forward ths proress
of "peaceful penetration," which had
begun almost automatically. Tbey
also devised various more or Isse ineffective military measures. To tbe
Mongols the revolution only seemed
likely to portend Increasing subjection and it Is not surprising tbat
tbey very soon turned to Russia lor
sympathy and practical aid.
Russia rssponded to the appeal
with an alacrity which was probably
dus In part to the annoyances caused
by recent Chinese policy In Mongolia.
"Young China" hns shown Itself sing-
ularly regardless of treaty provisions
and the nllegutlcn is that Russian
trading and othor rights In Mongolia
have been repeatedly violated by the
('hint's.!, (ireat llrltuin can well be
lelvo those statements (o be true; for
our own treaty rights In Tibet and

"national army" of Mongolia will
mean eventually tbe appearance ol
unother horde, may be dismissed at
once. Mongol hordes are no more
danger to the modern world than the
Red Indians are to ths United Sta e
Tbe Proctocol gives Russia - strong,

Great Britain cannot peer very far
beyond the situation as It Is puhllo

The deputation of Mongolian Ministers which bus Just been officially received by the Tsar, unquestionably

will hardly bo much sympathy with
ths Chinese Government, which hae

The Fate of Dorothy
Arnold, Probably Kidnaped and Murdered,
tShows the Danger That
Besets Young Women
A WOMAN—young, beautiful mid
/§ wealthy, of a family holding an ex-
** ^ cellent if not a conspicuous position in
society—de farts from her home on one of the
countless little errands or visits which are inch
dent to the life of any girl in a great city, here
or abroad.
I But here she is as liable to go alone, tn
daylight or dark, as she would expect to be accompanied by an escort if her home were in
Europe. She has back of her more than a
hundred years of Uie American traditional respect for womanhood; from her childhood she
has believed that the American girl who is
who could possibly bring lier handsome face to tho
notice of tbe multitude!..
In these two years, what with the outlays by the
Arnolds directly, by the police and by tho newspapers
In the effort to secure some trace of the missing girl,
lt ts estimated that 1100,000 has been spent, and spent
utterly In vain.
It was when the two full years were up that John
S. Keith, the attorney for the Arnolds, stated that,
ever since they had decided to give to the world the
news of their affliction, they had believed Dorothy
was kidnaped. There lay the secret of their readiness
to let the name of tliolr daughter, previously guarded
ln the privacy of their suffering hearts like that of a
treasure too priceless to be known, bo bandied about
amid all tlio notoriety they could then procure.
For a time, tbey thought she had bcen the victim
_f thieves; but gradually they became convinced that
no robber would run tho risk of delay that was Involved In so effectually concealing the corpso of bis
victim. She had not vanished dead; she must have
vanished living.
The sole thcorv which met all the facts surrounding her dlsappearanco was that which accepted kidnaping, probably as she walked through tho Central
Park sho knew ao well and felt so safe In; and the
sole surmise as to thft character of hcr kidnapers,
which could boar Intelligent scrutiny, was that they
were white slavers, who had marked her down for
their prey.
Long ogo, her mother reached th« awful conclusion that her daughter was dead; and the reasons for
that dire belief were thc very considerations which
ahould have safeguarded tho unfortunate girl from
every danger of tinrin.
That Sho could havo been seized and made away
with so secretly, without any person other than her
kidnapers  knowing of the  crime,  was  admitted  by
Looking for Good "Fat" Jobs as Queens
good and pure can walk, like Una, among
lions and take uo harm of any danger.
She passes a spot, for the moment de
serted* It may bc the corner of a quiet street;
it may be a bypath in thc park of her native
dty; it may be the main drive, all but free
of the throng of vehicles to be found at an
earlier hour.
Suddenly, silently, men leap from the
depths of the unfeared quiet; or an automobile comes to a swift halt, and the men spring
to the ground. Thc girl, reared as she has
been, accustomed to meet oitly deference and
gallant eagerness to serve from those about
%er, still cannot imagine that a danger threatens her. The instant she might have utilized
"for a shrieked alarm is lost.
A step or two, aud she is captive, pinioned
und gagged. Borne bodily into the waiting
car, and the motor speeded up, she is as utterly
lost to thc world that knows her as if she
were immured in some Chateau d'lf on a
rock in the sea*

ted at tins decision; but he could expect nothing else. Any countenance
given to his preteuslous would be
counter to the spirit of the preambl
to the Tibetan clauses of tbe Anglo
Russian Convention. Our correspi n
dent assures us that the British at
tltude with regard to Tibet is full>
understood in Russia. We believe
that it is; but we remft.n convinced
ihat. the best and Indeed the oni)
way to prevent (nlsundersland ng--,
.-.h.ther with Russia, or with China,
is for Great Britain to have a com
petent re;,res--ntative at Lhasa. Wt
continue to warn China that sh-
must not mvade Tibet, tnd that Ti
be.an autonomy must be respected,
but so long as we ourselves refrain
from direct relations with tbe Tibet
an Government, our position is diffi
-ult to defend. The n cessary r.con
.truction of a -single clause of the
n 1 ---Russian Convention should be
undertaken without delay.

pence pBtablii-hments will he completed before those of Germany are he-
gun. The result wns not, of course,
reckoned with by the German general
staff, which may, moreover, have an
even worse calculation in the case of
Russia. It has been the fashion ln
Germany since tho war Ln Manchuria
to decry the Russian arnvy and to
write it off as a bad debt, but there
ii.ust surely be some peoplo In Ger-
n any with the knowledge of the good
and solid work which has been put
into the Russian army since tbe war,
nud with a glimmering of u notion
(bat the mighty Empire of the
north was not likely to sit down wider the threat contained in tho new
German Army Hill.

lieve that the altered situation i ive
the great general staff at Derli
cause for serious anxiety. Long ago
Moltke pointed out in one of bla famous memoranda that, owing to th
the interests which Austria had to
protect to the eaBt and south, th
could not always act as an ally will
her whole strength, but only with »
contingent. The wisdom of that opin
ion has been well demonstrated by re
cent occurrences, It is probable tint
a large part of the strength of Auf
trla-Hungary may be deta ned uro
her south-eastern frontiers in cafle o
war, and it has of late become cleur
that the Slav races of the Dual Mod
archy are none too trustworthy fo
fighting Slavs. The rivalry between
Austria and Italy is always liable to
break out a'resh, and as a result t
a'l these considerations, nnd of th.
elimination of the Turk from the
European chessboard, it becomes unpleasantly obvious to the German
that their old nightmare of a war on
two fronts is with them again, nnd
that what German arms cannot do
for German Interests no one else may
be able to do for them.
From this point of view the new
German armaments appear perfectly
Justified, but when we begin to Inquire whether they will have the desired effect of establishing, or re-ea
tablishirg, Germnn military predominance on the European continent, we
must first of all inquire into the
character of the replies that cn be
made by the Entente Powers which
cannot, naturally, allow rival projects of military expansion to paw
by withirt countervailing measures,
Whit vIaw our own Govern mu. takes

; he   increasing   prosperity   of    the
ountry justifies all measures necessary for security. The Russian ordinary army expenditure for 1912, was
.93 millions of roubles, and the ex
raordinary expenditure of 832 million roubles, including 100 millions
lor railway construction. The -*oid
.(.-serve has risen from 1,271 million
roubles in 1908 to 1,846 millions in
1912.   Russia lacks neither men ij
esources, and, so long as Russ-.ai-i
are true to themselves, the new > ei
man Army Bill is condemned to hW*
ility  before it is passed, so fac ul
Russia is concerned.
It is also necessary to remark that
the Russian military organisation
bas been vastly improved during the
iast few years, und that there has
heen steady progress in the s ipply of
war material, in training und in con
tidence, and in preparation for war in
all its aspects. The most far-reaching
of these reforms was tbe abolition of
the old reserve ttoops and the substitution of active troops of tbe normal type. The suppression of the old
old reserve troops set free valuable
cadres and large effectives. With
these, six new Army Corps and one
new cavalry division were raised
while the artillery was expanded and
howitzers added. The education, sta
tus, and prospects of the corps of ofllcers bave been much Improved. The
pay of the rank nnd file has been tre
bled, nearly ull the training manuals
have been recast; the lessons of Manchuria have been taken to heart; and
no effort has been spared to encourage individual initiative and to exalt
the offensive spirit of the Army. The
higher command, the War OtHce, thc
lutenduncc, the Remoint Service and
many other branches have hern completely reorganU.d, while strutogic
railways havo be 0 energetically pn,lied on. Tho Mllltlu has been trans
formed1-, the cadres of the Active Army huvu been strengthened bv moro
rceiignged N. C. O.'s, and Rusrian
aeronautics aro second only to thn
French. The western model for reserve formation-i has tin illy been
adopted, and, in short, tho llussiau
Army has mado great strides and the
labors of tho past fow years have
producod notable results.
The only feature of tho now organization which provoked some surpr s ■
in Franco was tbo redistribution
scheme, which removed a certain
number of units from the western Army Corps in the regions of Moscow
and Kazan. These chnmrei-i were made
in order to exploit to the full the
national territory by the presence of
active units in the centres of formation of their affiliated reserve formations, and from tho purely Russian
point of view they were fully justified. They entailed, however, the
wlthdrnwal of the Russiun line of
couceutrutiou to a distance of nearly
100 miles eastward of tha Vistula,
and while thus ensuring the better security of the nsstmhl ng troops also
caused a longer timo to elapse before
the mobilized Russian armies could
traverse tbe frontier, it seemed, on
the whole, not Improbablo that before the weight of tu-. Russian Army
could be brought to bear ..ith much

Fire Damage
The damage done to commercial
stands of timber ln North America
ls from 125,000,000 to ?lW.''"n 000 annually, according to experts who aive
made a study of thc question. From
1880 to the present time, thc annual
loss ls estimated to be 950,000,000.
These figures do not Include estimates
of the losses sustained ln the destruction of young growth and forest litter, in which lies the hope of Iuture
timber crops, Tne burning ol the
forest litter has the effect of making
streams flow irregular, eroding river
hanks and destroying the fertility ot
land ov.r which useless earth is deposited by swollen .: ■ rs.
In some years, there nre forest lires
which assume tho size of national disasters. Such wa. the I'eshtlgo Aro

which stand out in the hi-lory ot the
past century as examples ol the
ruining power of the forest's great
eoemy are:—

and  85 lives lost.
Baudette fire, Minnesota and Ontario in 1910, 300,000 acrea burned and
42 lives lost,
Ot recent years there has been a re-
mnrkab'e change ln the attitude ol
the public towards these losses.
Newspapers and magazines discuss
questions of fire protection nil tha
year through, rather than in the periods of danger exclusively. Governments are adopting advance legislation, the number of fire rangera I*
constantly Increasing end over sixty
torest protective associations on th*
continent nre actively engaged ln efforts to reduce the fire loss.
With half the timber wealth of
Canada within her borders and an annual revenue from the torest whloh
can attain a total ol at least 1100,-

in tho protection of forests Irom fire
is almost beyond cb!limits, 'lhe Forest Branch is tak Ini; active measures

London.—In connect'on with the offer ol Lord Northcliffe ln the Dally
Mall of a price of (50,000 to the first
person making a transAtlnntic llight
in a hydro-aeroplane between any
point In the United Stutes, Canada

Lambert, who enys that within 10
years the Atlantic will be crossed by
hydro-aeroplanes between sunrise and
sunset on a summer's Bay. He ls the
Inventor ol the hydro-aeroplane anl
a pupil of Wilbur Wright. When he
was asked what wero tbe difficulties
of a transAtlnntic flight, Count de
Lambert said: "Tho two great difficulties will be ln keeping one courso,
ns one Is out of sight of ships and
the wind changes, and tn avoid being
smashed up by the waves when o:io

trouble with the wind is that you
may keep your course by the com

'Take a machine weighing a -on,

whoh distance be 2,000 miles and tha
mnchlno to fly at a modornte speed,
62 miles an hour. To drive the machine 90 feet a second means an effective thrust of 440 pounds, or 66
horse power. To obtain this a motor
of 120 horse power Ib required, consuming 110 pounds -' petrol an hour.
Thus, In order to do tnu distance in
32 hours a one ten machine would
hnve to start with one and a ball

"Hence, hefore we can fly across
without stopping we must find a bettor fuel than petrol or a mare efficient motor, or the machine which requires less than a 440 pound thrust;
and no doubt we shall succeed. Meanwhile I consider tho scheme ol flying

Proclaims Himself King!
Essad Pasha Makes Dramatic Move by  Proclaiming
Himself King of Albania
Cettinje.—EsBad Pasha, tbe hero ot
Scrutari, who had a picturesque and
adventurous career, has made a dramatic move by proclaiming himself
king of Albania, and is said to be
marching into the interior of Albania wltb 40,000 men. He was received wltb enthusiasm at Alesslo and in
pro-ceding to Iirana to be proclaim,
ed and ta'te possession.
Essad Pasba is an Albanian chief
tain ol the type whlcb earned lor the
Albanians a reputation for barbaric
simplicity approaching savagery. He
was always opposed to ths Yoi a.
Turks' repressive measures in Albania. In Vienna and Paris his surren
der of Scrutari is regarded as having
been an arranged matter witb King
Nicholas, who approved this plan to
proclaim himself Independent prince
of Albania,
The whole scene ol the alleged
storming ol Scrutari, surrendering ol
the town to the Montenegrins and
the marching out ol Essad Pasha's
army with tbeir arms is now regarded as a coup d'theatre to deceive
Europe. Essad ls said to have Joined Djavld Pasha's army of 9,000 men,
and il he baa the support of Servia
and Montenegro it will be a severe
blow lor Austria.
A Belgrade dispatch to tbe Daily
Mail asserts that Essad Pasha's Albanian stun ling assures bis success
and tbat be bos an alliance with
King Nicholas.	
According to a report published ii.
Berlin an Austrian in vui division has
left Trieste with 10,000 trooiiB, with
tha intention of occupying Antivuri,
Dulcigno and San Giovanni di Meeliia
and advancing agaiust Cettinje.
The StrosBburger Post assarts that
the German emperor has received a
telegram saying that tbe Austrian,
already have entered Montenegro.
This probably la premature, but little
doubt ls now felt tbat Austria Is determined to move alone unless the
ambassadorial conference at Loudon
Monday resolves uion European action.
This is considered the fateful day
tn the history ot the Balknn problem,
in which new and difficult complications have arisen.
The ambassadors of the powers presented a note at Cottinje yesterday
formally demanding the evacuation of
tbe city, but the Montenegrin ministers ejeused themselves from consideration ol the note until after tb.*

Mr. Rockefeller, It was learned,

it was arranged tbat he should go to
Lukewood. There ho found Mr. Rockefeller's private conveyance waiting to

Rockefeller greeted the Texan lawyer,

Mr. Maury said h« was without

certain companies, the petition declares, lor the exclusive pursuit of
the oil business, and the Magnolia
and Corslcnnn companies are permitted to do business In Texas, while all
other companies "undor snld control"
are barred Irom tbnt state. The control of subsidiaries, tho petition says,
says, ls exercised iu a way to make
the defendants parties to a "conspiracy."
New York.—Wltb tbe serving ol

The substance ol the allegations o.'
tbe attorney-general ot Texas is tbat
the Standard Oil Companies of New

The methods suggested by th! Ontario farmers could very easily be
carried out in the OrnnSbrook district
with profit to nil concerned
About two years ago a movement
wan started In Ontario county to establish a satisfactory system of marketing poultry vroducts. The work
commenced with the handling of eggs.
Egg marketing associations wore
formed in two promising sections
with the idea that farmers might try
out the scheme for themselves.
If It proved to be a failure the matter would then be dropped, but il
successful, thc movement would grow
of Itself, and thnt growth being
largely spontaneous, progress would
be likely to be permanent and satisfactory.
Eight organizations have since been
formed. According to the latest reports thc total present membership Is
over 500 farmers. In practically nil
cases tbe development and oxtens on
ol the work bus been due to the pronounced success of those organizations already esta'ilishcd i.nd operating. In all cases extension hns taken place In thos- sections in tie immediate vicinity ol estublisb'-d associations. This is tho best evidence
of what the larmers think of the
movement, or of co operative mar-
'.eting associations.
The development baB been brought
about largely becauso of the increased
prices which the members of tlioae
organizations have been receiving over and above prevailing local market
it is ditllcult to record thc exact
advance in price because of tlic influence which thc movement has on the
local prices, but to give approximate
iigures, tbe advance in the spring and
summer seasons has ranged from one
to three cents, and in tbe fall and
winter from tbree to as high as 12
cents. This premium which the
"marked" oggs from these organizations have been bringing, In the near
city markets is due to an improvement in quality.
Although this increase ln prices is
largely responsible for tho present development and success of tne movement it is uot by any means the only benefit to be dorlved from such an
Thc chief virtue of sucb a movement la the effect which it hns upon
the uttitude of the farmer toward tits
poultry department and the handling
und marketing of eggs. The higher
prices received by members for their
eggs appeals to those who nre not
members of tbe organization.
These non-members become desirous to join the association even when
fully informed of the rules and regulations which must be followed. After
having Joined they are particularly
anxious to Butisfy the management
in order that they shall not be expelled from tbe organization.
In this way tbe old time indifferent
farmer is changed to a keenly interested one. Ho becomes remarkably receptive and looks to those wbo are
directing the organization to guide
bim in the detailed management of
this part of his business. Tbis offers
a wonderful opportunity for most effective educational work.
As above stated the prominent feature of these organizgtions Ib "quality payment." This co islBts of tbe
complete rejection of eggs which are
absolutely bad and a reduction ln
price allowed for nnywhich are very
Binall, very dirty or very seriously
shrunken or deteriorated in quality.
All eggs are carefully examined by a
oompctent person, usually the manager of the association or un employee under him, or nn employee of tho
produce firm to whom the eggs may
bc sold.
The source of bid or deteriorated
eg ;s is traced by means of the number which is stamped upon each egg.
No two numbers aro alike, therefore
the manager experienced no difficulty in making the deductions in the
proper accounts.
It is imperative tbnt all members
stamp their e_s. It tbls were not
so, such a system of payment could
not bc followed. Moreover the stamp
carries with it a reasonable guarantee of quality. Such eitga—known on
the market aB "marked eggs,'" are
represented to the consuming public
as the best grado.
A community of fanners desiring
to organize a cooperative marketing
association should get ln touch with
the officials ot the department ol a;
riculture ot either the Provincial or
Dominion Government. Upon receipt
ol such communication thc applicants
will be sent literature bearing upon
the nature of such an organization,
its value to the farmers, bow to or
ganize, etc.
A code ot rule.: for thc government
of the association and other useful
information will alto he sent. II tbe
community Is ready lor organization

a preliminary meeting or ougnnlze at

Self-denial Week
Captain Carruthers, tho officer In
command of the local corps of The
Solvation Army deBlres to Inform
renders of Tho Prospector tbat tbe
yoarly week of self-denial which
has become sucb a well-known means
ol asslstiug the maintenance and extension of Thc Salvation Army will
bo observed thin year from Sunday,
Mny   lili to   loth.
The development of this yearly effort ot tho Halvation Army hns been
truly a remarkable one. Whin tlrst
conceived by the fnr seeing genius
of General Booth lt was practically
confined to ibo smnll numbers of
members of The Army in existence
then, nnd oonelstc.d of many very
noteworthy acts of denial, not only
of luxuries but actual neressitles, to
raise funds tor the work so dear to
tboir hearts.
It Is also well to remember that,
with the financial effort, goes n
nppclnl week of prnver. This city
hns undoubtedly benefited, In many
wave, hy the presence nnd good work
of tbo Army.
Apnrt from tho local work, Tho
Army ls certainly ono of the largest
missionary orgnntzntlons in heathen
lands, where lt hns met with a success little imnelned by noble who
nro need to .liflVrrnt. methods In the
eonversinn of non-clirlstlnn' nations.
'I'lla following ntntlslles nre worthy
of.close study:
Af'cnclos nt work thhroiif*bout the
world; RO countries and colonies; 8*1
lun'-uages ln which we preach; 1,406
missionaries; 459 day schools ln
heathen lands; 8 hoipltals add dls
pessaries; 117 rescue homes; 13
_ttsrnitf homes; St children's homas

23,131- bandsmen; 102 shelter and food
depots'; 6,327,240 beds supplied to
men and women; 11,839,437 meals
supplied; 146 hotels for working people- 2,659 ex-criminals received (12
monthB); 2,373 passed out satisfactory; total number social Institutions
Donations in aid of the work ot
Tho Army will be received by the officer in charge or any of the authorized collectors. We sincerely hope
tbat there wlll be a liberal response
to the appeal from the clti-
wns of our town.
