Overseas Club
One of the most interesting gatherings of the Overseas Club was held
in the Maple Hall on Tuesday evening, the occasion being the celebrating of the institution's fourth Anniversary.
Due notice had heen given to the
members and their friends, the con-
sequence being that the ball wm
crowded with a.out 100 attending. A
gptondid programme had been prepared, a number of participants possessing excellent talent who gave their
best to the admiring audience.
During the course of the evening
the ladles were liberal with their refreshments which were enjoyed by
The president, E. Y. Brake, Vice-
President C. A. Cook, Rev. E. P.

Effect of War on Mining Industry
Modern tninsr ortation facilities
have knit together by ties of commerce the most widely separated
countries. All nations, therefore,
whether participating in the present
European war or not, will be affected by it.
For example, the mining Industry
in Canada is financed largely hy capital supplied from Europo and it is
BVident that during tho war, little or
no money will be forthcoming for
new mining developments.
In the case of the metals, the Canadian production in 1912 amounted
to about $61,175,000; practically this
entire output was exported for refining purposes, ch icily tc thc United
Oue of the first eltects of the war
was the closing of the London and
New York stock exchanges. In the
United States, selling agents report
no market for copper, and, as there
are no transactions, there are no
quotations. As Canadian copper is
exported to the United Stntes for
refining, and, as the American mar-
tot Is now extremely dull, the copper mines of Canada will be affected.
As regards silver, New York is but
the shadow of the London market,
and silver mines throughout the
world are rendered idle by the lack
of demand for tbeir product. In the
Cobalt camp, the complete or partial closing of a number of the principal mines has resulted already in
throwing a great number ol men out
of work. However, as Great Britain
maintains the mastery ol tbe sea,
the business in silver with India and
China will probably be resumed.
As the lead production of Canada
Is refined at home, with Montreal as
the principal market, this industry
will not be seriously injured.
In the case of iron and steel, it iB
reported, though not confirmed, that,
owing to the unprecedented financial
situation created by the war, the
Nova Scotia Steel Company has decided to close down the iron ore
mines at Wabana, and the blast and
open hearth furnaces at Sydney

Bright Prospects for the Allies
London, Sept. 2.—The Liverpool
Courier Bays that Germany is preparing an active campaign in Cannda
in an endeavor to bring about a revolution of the present Heeling, Numbers of Canadians arc receiving letters from German acquaintances, giving grossly exaggerated accounts of

countries at war wtth England who
have arms or explosives must surrender them to the authorities within ten days, a Government order today provides. The Bale of arms or
explosives to such aliens is forbidden under penalty of $500 fine or
three months' imprisonment.

The Unemployed in
War Times
In an emergency such as faces the
country this year, "the problem of
thc unemployed" will be one of the
most Sarious that will have to be
met. Indications are many, and need
not be here enumerated, that the
number of unemployed will be large
ly increased during the coming win
ter. The result, unless comprehensive
preventive measures are adopted, wUl
be great suffering and serious economic waste.
Methods for meeting such situations
have been in practice for many years
in Germany and have accomplished
great things in checking the evils of
unemployment. The outstanding feature of the German plan is the free
labour registries. TheBe are organized by the municipalities and have
the advice and, where needed, the
financial assistance of the provincial
nnd national governments. In many
instances both thc trade unions and;
the employers of labor have co-oper-
nled with tho registries, which are
managed by committees composed of
employers and employed. Where possible, such registries have buildings
devoted entirely to their own purposes. Men and women desiring work
register their names nnd nre brought
into touch with employers of labor.
Semi-weekly returns of unemployed
are exchanged hntween the reglstrieB
of neighboring commun'tios, and frequently laborers obtain work by thiB
means. In such ct.sis, arrangements
are mnde with thc railways for cheap
Othor features of these registries
that are especially worthy of note at
tho present juncture in Canada, are
the arrangements that arc made for
the accommodation of the unemployed. For this purpoae, aaBenibly hills,
where work-seekera may assemble
during the day, and reading rooms,
supplied with books and newspapers,
nre provided, as well as lunch rooms
and work rooms for tailors, cobblers, and others, where fo id may be
obtained and repairs to clotting
mnde at tho lowest possible coat.
Lavatories, and, in somo cases, hath
rooms, are pro\ tiled, nnd, in addition to such accommodation, Bleeping quartern are found, wh.re tbose
dntr.rvlng it cnn obtain lodgings at
nominal cost.
In times of exceptional unemployment, however, such as nre caused by
war, labor registries cannot hope to
provide employment for all wbo wnnt
work, for the simple reason that
many Industries find it necessary   tn
Vremya, who witnessed the storming
of Shahatz, Servia, by Servians, describes atrocities which, he claims,
were committed by the Austriana
while they held the town for. a fortnight.
The correspondent Bays that 125
citizens were bayonetted to death in
the Cathedral square before the eyes
of 1,500 women and children, who had
been herded into the cathedral which
had been transformed into a prison.
H3 declared that houses were burned
by the wholesale, A woman doctor
told him she had seen petroleum
poured over a wounded Servian and
then set on fire.
London, Sept. 8.—There arc now
about 6,000 German suspects and
prisoners of war in the concentration
camps of Great Britain. TheBe
camps ac* situated at Al.iershot,
Newbury, Dorcheater, Queensbury,
Lancaster, Uyfrimball, Edinburgh and
Templemore, Ireland.
If another camp is needed it will be
located probably at Salisbury Plain,
tbe famous military centre.

operations entirely. Under such cir-
eiinistunci's ''distress works'' might
be put in operation during the winter months. Even in the severe Canadian climate there are numerous
municipal and national public wor»s
that could be carried on during tho
winter. Such work should be undertaken, in largo part, by tbe provincial'and federal govern uen.s, as It
is scarcely Just to require the municipalities to bear all tbs burden resulting  from unemployment.     More-
neutral flags and there is need to
keep the strictest watch over the
North Sea.
That German prisoners be pressed
into service in the highly hazardous
work of sweeping the North sea of
mines was the suggestion made in
the bouse of commons today. German prtle crews under British ofllcers
would handle such craft if the plan
outlined were adopted.
London, Sept.; 10.—The commons
voted unanimously for 500,000 more
recruits. The country waa surprised
by tho. announcement that 430,000
men bad been enlisted since the beginning of the war. When the government's plans were completed the
British army for tho continent and
for the home service will consist of
roughly the following:
Regular army 1,200,00; reserves
.-,14,000; Indian contingent 70,000;
Canadian tlrst and second contingents 70,000; Australians 20,000 and
New Zealand 10,000, making a total
of 1,854,000 men.
This tremendous enrolment for a
country wblch normally has only a
small professional army haB thrown
light on the government's views regarding the duration of the war, or,
at toast, upon ita determination to
meet all possibilities.

Death of F. R. Morris
Cranbrook was taken by surprise
when it learned tbat Sheriff F. H.
Morris had passed away on Tuesday.
The ond came vory suddenly, caused
through a stroke of apoplexy. The
news Boon spread around thc city,
and could scarcely be credited by his
numerous friends.
Mr. Morris, it appears, was passing
the Queen's Hotel when he felt sick
and went in and laid on one of thfl
beds, Dr. Davis was immediately
summoned but nothing could be done
for bim nml the end came qutokly.
The body was taken to 1'nlertaker
F. M. MacPherson*b parlors,
In chronicling bis death li is hard
to lind the right words In which to
express the feelings that beset one.
He wns a qwui highly osteomod and
hiH kindly smile and friendly greeting will be solely missed Irom the
stroots of Cranbrook ami diatrict,
"Cold in the dust the perished heart,
may die, hut that, which warmed it
once can never die." He was a devoted husband and a kind uud indulgent father, to his friends the soul
bf fellowship, But the greatest of
all ]\\ was a man. Mo seemed .to believe tlmt the man who scatters flowers in the pathway of hts fellow men,
who lets into the dark places of life
sunshine of human sympathy and human kindness, was doing the right
thine, In carrying out his many onerous duties he did them with a
heartiness and cheerfulness that on
whom his duties fell the hard sting
waa removed by the kindliness of
the action in the doing.
Sheriff Morris was born at Halifax, Nova Scotia, on February 2fith,
1850, and was 04 years o: age last
Wben he was 21 years of age he
left Halifax and started for the then
great unknown west. He made his
way along the Missouri river end tin-
ally landed at Fort Walsh, where ha
oined the Northwest Mounted Police, and during his five years' service with that great body he gained
the rank of sergeant an.l was sta
tinned at Fort Walsh and Garry, the
latter being where Winnipeg now
stands. *
After leaving the police he started
rpnehing on the St. Mary's near
Fort McClennan, but abandoned that
after two years and took up another
ranch on the north fork of the Old
Man's river, near Plncher Creek, Alberta. He superintended the erection
of the HrBt building in Fort Macleod. It waB while ranch'ng on Old
Man's river that h? met M. B.
Heath and later Miss Alice G. Heath,
who later became Mrs. Morris.
They settled on thc farm on Old
Man's river, where they remained for
several years and finally sold out anil
moved to Trail, where Mr.Morris invested heavily in min'n* property.
Home of bis investments turned out
badly and he jo!n d the provincial police there and was sent to Cranbrook
in 1897. At tbat time thc railroad
was juat coming through and Cranbrook was unincorpo:ated anl waa
policed by Sheriff Morris.
He leaves to mourn h;s loss n wit1,
and two Bons, Stewart an.l Spry, all
residents of this city.
Mr. Morris has considerable property interests through this district
being interested with bis biother-in-

20th  YEAR
CRANBROOK,  B.O   September 12, 1914.
In another column we publish a
notice from the .Mayor calling the
attention of all citlaena to n patriotic meeting io be held In the City
Hall on Wednesday next. The purpose of the meeting Is clearly outlined iu the message received from
Lieut.-.Jov. PatterBon, All through
the country this patriotic fund is being contributed to very freely, committees having been arranged to
make a personal canvass of the city
in many places and the results have
fully justified the means. What Cranhrook will be able to do along these
lines remains to be seen at the meeting. We know thut she will do her
best; Cranbrook is loyal and patriotic to a high degree and the resources of its citizens will be placed
at the call of the (Umpire when needed.

The British nation at heart is still
profoundly religious. The naval and
military missions are distributing individual pockeit Bibles to every soldier and sailor. Each bears thi3 inscription, written by Lord Roberts,
"Fighting Bobs," the idol ol the
British army: "I ssk you to put
your trust in God. He will watch
over you anl strengthen ynu. You
will find in this little book guidance
when you are in health, comfort
when you are in sickness and strength
when yau are in adversity. • Signed)

Aeroplanes have been used   by   the
Germans to drop bombs into Antwerp and Paris, and by all the contending parties to try to discover the
secrets hidden in forts or to report
the position of armies. Of all the
evil inventions that man hns made
for the destruction of his fellows, the
airship seems thc moBt pitilers. A
battle in the air took placo over
Paris between three German aeroplanes and two French machines in
which one of the German airships

One of the morning papers coming
in from across the line is now known
as tHl' "Berlin Daily News." We have
had considerable experience in thc
newspaper business but the way this
paper discovers all the sensational
news purporting to comffl from Berlin and makes bucIi prominence of
anything thnt is in any way derog-
otory to the Allies' Interests is surprising. Other newB heneticial to the
Allien is invariably placed in some
corner with small headings. We are
not biased at all, but even in displaying news items it is well to be
t   •   •   •
One reason why we refer to the
above paper is that this week it contained a newB Item running with
large headlines across the front page,
"Germans capture frontier fort, 40,-
000 prisoners !aken," the news originating from Berlin sources and even
given as official from the German
front. The consequence was that several citizens almost came to blows
over the affair. There is a limit to
all things. If tt is the truth we as
membera of the British Empire can
face the consequences, but when we
hava definite knowledge that the
story is false 24 hours before even
thc paper in question is printed it
s ems to us they should temper
their statements somewhat and relegate such messages to a remote corner Of  the paper.

The Valley of Tears
The following despatch was sent
from The Hague to The New York
Herald by Rene H, Feibelman, cor-
respondent of The London Daily Express:
Travelers from Berlin Inform tue
that half the city already is draped
black. A conspicuous figure among
the mourners is Prince Bernhard von
Billow, formerly Imperial t'han.'cllor,
whose brother, General von BulOW,
was killed during the siege of Liege.
He and the Princess are stopping at
the Hotel Adlon.
The great millinery and dressmaking establishments in the German
capital are now wholly given over to
the manufacture and sale of mourning. They are packed all day by
weeping women and children, and
queues uf mourners ar* in front, almost everyon" clad in sombre shades.
The shadow of the calamitous losses is over the entire city. Princess
von Llppi, at the Hotel Cumberland,
received a telegram at dinner one
evening, informing h?r that her two
sons had fallen at Lleue. Forgetting
she was a princess in a public dining*
room, she sobbed aloud. Only one
word passed her lips, "Dead"' Later the princess was informed that h*r
two younger brothers had been killed
at Charleroi.
In Dorotheen Strasse the general
staff has opened an information bureau. Piteous scenes are of hourly occurrence, so much so that Dorotheen
Strasse is called "The Valley of
Despair has seized the city. Unless
the general staff can soon announce
a great victory and give convincing
prool that the news is true there will
emerge from the horror .stricken
depths a revolt such as few nations
have known.
This despatch was sent last Tuesday. Since then the Germans have
lost many thousands more, and the
anguish of the people has beon deepened. To this we must add the awful conditions that have arisen in
Austria. Vienna Is being prepared
for a siege, aud two reports of Impending famine have come out from
tbat city. The Austrian death roll
must be even longer than that of the
Germans. Then, when wo add to
this the losses of the Belgians, the
French, the Russians and the British, it seems as if tbe cup of human
woe must be already overflowing,
and yet the war is not six weeks
old. Tbe only consolation to bc discovered in all this ghastllness is that
thc end cannot bo far away. Human
nature can stand only so much, and
the limit must already have been
nearly readied.
minister of another body, would silence him forever. Pastor Russell
knows from Bad experience that legal
procedure offers no relief for bim.
Mr. Giles' effort to discredit our
exposure of the teachings of Russell-
ism in our former communication is
mere idiotic bluff. The great foundation doctrines of Christianity repudiated by Ruusellism do not stand nor
fall by the utterance of specific
words or texts. Moreover, when
PaBtor Russell aBSUmes a knowl'dge
ol Last Things unknown even to
Jesus himself, we have to part company with him. Inasmuch as Russell
ism with all Its vagaries, is making
headway among trusting people, so
easily deceived by anything assuming
a religious character, we ask further indulgence to deal with Mr. Giles'
$30 Premium Texts.
"Fifty dollars for a text that says
thc soul is immortal." We advise
him to extend his munificence ami offer another $50 tor a text that says
the soul is mortal. (Wa have mot
this chestnut  before.)
"Fifty dollars for a text that says
there Is no probation or salvation
after death." Again Mr. Giles should
offer a further testimony o! his liber
ality for a text or texts that say
there is probation and salvation af
ter death.
"Fifty dollars for the word 'trim
ty' in the Bible." He might as eaai
ly offer another for tin- word 'deity.'
Deity and trinity are not Bible
words, but expressions meeting the
full meaning of deity and trinity are
so frequent, reference is unnecessary,
■■Fifty dollars tor au error In Pastor Russell's Chronology of the Bi

ledge to Jesus Christ, we give it up.
"Fifty dollars for logical pr^o.
that the churches of Christianity Are
not daughters of the symbolic 'Mother' in Revelation 17." Mr. t.ile^ i;
guilty of basest deception or cfl pitiable ignorance wh n he says "All
commentstors say this "Mother' is
symboMc of the Church of Rome."
The scholarship of the world iB divided into some six schools of interpretation, on th-- Book oi Revelation;
therefore he is In error here. Granted, for the sake of reason, that this
'Mother of Harlots' is th" Church of
Rome and observe wWrre it leads us.
The great point of cleavr.e-* between
Romanism and the other churches is
Rome's assumption ol the supreme
authority of the church, as against
the supreme authority of the Fcrip-
tures, and her power and authority
to add, change or take away from
the scriptures. Like mother like
laughter is a true proverb. In vision we review all the Christian holies for the mother's likeness. Here
we observe faint resemblances; there,
striking ones; and in others, none
whatever. But, here, three or four

That $1500 Reward
Mr. Editor:
It is evident that our former letter to the people of Oranbroolt re
"RusselUsm" has evoked a puff of
DUST, that is designed to blind the
eyes of some simple folk to the blasphemous assumptions of this cult.
The rec'flcss volleying o.' dollars In
cunks of fifties, five hundreds an i
even thousands is bewildering to one
IOf those poor mortals who, according
to apostolic injunction, lives by the
"pay" he receives in thc prosecution
of his pastoral work. It is to be re-
gretted that nowhere in his wide ac-
1 quaintance with ministers of evange*
lic.al faith does be know one of hia
"paid" brethren, who could dupli
cats this spectarular flourish of money. One is deeplv Impress d Of tha
monetary valui of RuHseiUsm.
Mr. Giles exhibits a colicitude for
the moral reputation of Mr. Russell
worthy of a better cause. We invite
him, and with Iim the "many goo i
men who claim that Pastor Russell
is n,,t only the greatest Bible expositor on earth but also so MEEK and
'full of LOVE for Gol and humanity,

Admiral Jellicoe
On the shoulders of the man wbo
hoists his flag as Commander-in-
Chfef of the British fleets today,
events have cast a stupendous responsibility. No Icbb a thing than
the fate of the British Empire, perhaps even thD moiety of the
world, may in the last resort depend
on his brain and nerve. The genius
of his personality will very likely be
the decisive factor in dispensing destinies to more than half mankind. It
is a unique position, and the Btit-
ish navy is glad that Sir John Jellicoe holds it. Thero was a sigh of
satisfaction and relief in overy vessel that Hies the white ensign of Britain on the seas when the appo'nt-
ment was known. What manner of
man is he?
The British public knows hardly
anything about .lell coe. Millions of
our people never even heard his
name. But tbe Fame would have
been, and probably was, true of Nelson under similar conditions snd nt
one timo. The navy knows Jcllico?.
That is the reason why the navy
trusts him. Ile i* a young man, as
British admirals go, His face anl
figure do not instantly impress tha
stranger like Sir Join Fisher's. Tho

jaws and humorous but almost brutal mouth, and the searchlight eyes

.that stick out aggressively, simply
fisoinate. The veriest dullard would
recognise, in seeing Sir John Fisher
for tho first, time, that be was looking at, no ordinary being, but, a personality ol commanding vitality and
force. Sir John Jollfcoe Is one of

Worthy Germans
The commendable spirit being
shown by the German Canadians of
Ontario in this critical and trying
hour is strikingly evidence in the following message published in the Berliner Journal, of Berlin, Ontario, an
influential German newspaper in
Western Ontario. The translation is
by Mayor "Billy" Ruler, of Berlin,
himself a fine example of the German
Canadian, and is as follows:
"The two greatost world powers of
Europe are in a world contest. We
Germans, whether immigrants or
born in Canada, fe"-l the weight of
the blow doubly.
"The love of the old Fatherland is
bom in us. And the respect we have
for our new hnme should not bring
divided feelings to ua.
"Canada, the great Dominion, part
of the powerful British Empire, invited us to make our home here. We
must not forget the years of peace
and prosperity that we have enjoyed
under the British flag.
"We have -njoyed here the same
freedom as the English and all other
nationalities. The Union Jack haB
floated over us; under it our children
were born.

change nothing in our relationship to
our adopted Fatherland, our new

This is no longer a commercial appeal, it is the rallying cry of combatants llrt'd with Imperial and national patriotism. Wo must furnish
Britain and our frien.ls a\ war with
food and supplies. More land should
be brought undor eultivat on. and
part of our urban population transferred to tho task of brin Ing wealth
out of the soil. Tho mcn;y received
for our products will co far to provide Ior our necessities and, if wisely circulated in our own country, will
alleviate distress from unemployment. This is the perfect circle that
will benefit our farmers, keep our factories in operation, provide work,
maintain credit and retain money. It
is the duty of Canadian citizens to
spend every possible dollar at home
during the war. Sending money
abroad in payment for foreign goods
indirectly helps the enemies of Britain, because such action weakens
ourselves. Campaigns Bhould he organized by the citizens of every community. The support of the local
press, public officials and consumers
should be enlisted. It is evident that
a flood of goods, from neutral countries, deflected from the ports of hel-
ligerent nations, will threaten to overwhelm our markets. While our fellow-countrymen fight in Europe, let
us fight at home to develop tbe
Bourcea of our nat'onal wtalth so
that they may streng.hon us in time
of need. All that stands between our
safety and prosperity and the colony-
hungry Gormans is a group of ships
in the North Sea. The tremendous
struggle is only begun. The end is
shrouded in uncertainty. The struggle and its after-effects will tax us
t0 the limit of endurance. Canadian
producers and consumers must stenl
together, watchful of one ano;her'B
interests, ready to sacrifice personal
Inclination, willing to incur inconvenience. This iB na time to indulge
whims, prejudices or fancies in favor
of foreign manufactures. Neithvr
should citizens who have means economize too severely; spend now, keep
factories going and retrench later.
In such a crisis everything sho Id be
done by the manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, anil, if necessary,
by the Government, to keep down to
the lowest possible figure ths price of
articles manufactured in Canada
which Canadians are askod to buy for
tatriotic reasons. Manufacturers
and other produfl'rs must show ion
Burners that thoy arc willing to dispense temporarily with profits and
will he satisfied to make ends   moot.

I By restricting their purchases to Canada, consumers are Lound to reap

I which is the natural result ol large

buying at home.
Importations of Gerir.an and Austrian goods being prohibited, it will
be necessary for us to obta'n articles
previously exported to ub by these
countries, from other sources. Why
not analyze thc lists of these articles
to determine how many of them

year we imported hnW u million dollars' worth of clothing, ov«r half a
million dollars' worth of woollens,
half a million dollars' worth ol cut-
Ury, half a million dollars' worth dt
socks and sellings, and half a million dollnrs' worth of toys from Ger
many. Why not ma'ie these goods
here? Let us build up our trude and
establish it (irmly while competition
is thus eliminated to our advantage.
These are only n few out of many examples apparent from a perusal of
the trade returns. Fight the enemy
by establishing competing industries.

Daniel O'Connell— The Liberator
ID ERIN has given the world many a genius and many a Lover of Liberty, but none greater than the eloquent
| O'Connell. This noble Irishman unselfishly devoted every moment of his life to regain the Freedom of his Fatherland. His oratory, because of its flaming earnestness, exercised a powerful influence over tiie House of Commons and
hastened many reforms for Ireland. Daniel O'Cbnnell was the first to realize tiie irresistible strength of a union of mil
lions of Irishmen, and to this end he labored night and day. Huge mass meetings wers everywhere organized throughout Ireland and addressed by the masterful O'Connell. when confident of success and with victory in sight he was
arrested and condemned to prison. When liberated his splendid constitution was shattered, but he continued until
his dying hour to work and pray for Irish Liberty, lt is needless to say that Daniel O'Conndl was opposed to any Prohibitory legislation which invaded the Natural Rights of Man. He would no more vote for such tyrannous enactments
than will our millions of Irish-American citizens. They knew that there is no evil in ihe barley brews and light wines
of their fathers—EVIL ONLY IS IN THE MAN WHO MISUSES THEM. For 57 years Anheuser-Busch have honestly
brewed honest beers, and they are proud of the popularity their great brand Budweiser en j'oys with those of Irish blood.Our
Irish citizens have helped to make our nation great among the nations of the world. Leven thousand, five hundred people
are daily required to keep pace with the natural demand for Budweiser.        ANHEUSER-BUSCH • ST. LOUIS USA

The Kaisers Mistake
From   whence   comes    this    gloomy
Spreading terror o'er the land;
Bidding all to rise and follow,
Dealing death on every hand?
Oh, the vain and hitter lolly
In a world of lust and hat'3,
That could send ull nations crashing
To disaster; 'tis but fate.
Methinks they who made this horror
Spring up in a single night,
Thought not ol the sleeping Hon,
Who would rise in all his might.
When tho lires of destruction
Lit all Europe in their glare,
And the weak called for protection,
Called, ant found it ready there.
Now, I fain would add a   moral
Ere T lay my pen aside,
For the thllS.ing men and women
That within this world abide.
When thy lot becomes exalted,
That so humble was before,
Stoop to help a wei-t.er brother,
Love the Poor about thy door.

Notable Progress in
Wood Treatment
The most notable progress yet recorded in the chemical treatment ol
timber to prevent decay wns made
during the last year. In the United
Slates, 93 wood-preoerving plants
consumed in 1913 over 108,000,000
gallons of creosote oil, 2(1,000,000
pounds of dry zinc chloride, and
nearly 4.000,u00 gallons of other liquid preservatives. Thia material
was used to treat over 153,000,000
cubic f«t of timber, or about 23 per
cent more tban in 1913.
Impregnation of wood with oils

Industry which bas become Important
on this continent only In recent
years, fn 'ireat Britain and most of
the European countries practically
every wooden cross-Up R*\d telephone
Or telegraph pole receives preservative treatment. In the United states
of the 13^,000,000 cross tlos annually
consumed, toss than 30 per cent are
treated, and the proper treatment Of

San Diego Exposition,
Sept. 4, 1914
Dear Herb:
This country out here is the Mecca
for moving picture people. Not that
they're Mohammedans or polygam-
ists or anything like that—in fact,
I'm told that they're just about as
nic> a lot of folks aB one could meet
and I'll say to you fran'-.ly that
I've seen several of them tbat I'd
Uke to meet—one today in particular
up on the Exposition grounds: she
was a peach, but Bhe already had a
bunch of soldiers tagging after her,
and while I'm as brave as the average guy, I'll bet, I never go around
deliberately lo ' ing for trouble, anyway not with fellows who make a
living fighting, or getting ready to
flght—bo I haven't met hir yet.
Say, did you ever see a motion picture film In the making? It's grent!
One of the big companies has a studio on the grounds at the San Diego
Exposition and tlt.y make pictures
every day. Pretty soft for the company too. You know they pay extra
people from $3 to $5 a day. Here
they just UBe any of the crowds that
are bumming around on the grounds
for their angry mobs or merry villagers, and then the director gives
eacb one a ralncheck so he can come
back next day and see himsellf on the
screen. Fine reciprocal system that!
Movie company saves money and the
merry villagers can see themselves
as others see them, and just as
Once in a while you get a real
thrill. I was walking along the
Prado 'tending tc the Exposition
business when I beard a scream-
right out loud they do It even if they
can't get on the film—and I looked
up nnd saw a man falling from the
top of one of our beautiful build ngH
—Saanish-Colonlal type with a dash
of the Ecclesiastic in it—right onto
one of our brand new walks. I
rushed over indignantly, fully intend
Ing to remonstrate witb tho party
i nd protost against his mussing up
our scenery that way, I found that
it was only a dummy, and the
screamer was a pretty fair looker,
nnd a harmless-looking fellow was
quietly cranking his camera, snd I
realized that he. bad to make a living too—so I let him go. And the
Imitation cop they had with them
was one of the biggest men in the
world. He in yet, I guess—'cause I
let him live.
A while later 1 was strolling along
tho Calle Colon, still tending to that
same business, when I heard the
crack of rifles close by anl from a
clump of orange trC'B there dashed
some bedraggled-looking Mexicans
carrying ancient firelocks, right
straight at me. I knew that we
weren't far from the border—and I
hadn't lost any Mexicans—po I nimbly stepped to a stately eucalyptus
and Inserted mysolf between Uh
trunk and th|) circumambient, atmo-
Bphoro— on the far side—and thought,
of home and mother. Thnn I casually glanced around the t.roe to see
what progreBH they were .making.
They were doing pretty well, I Judged, and right at their heels was a
troop of United Btatos Infantry yel
ling to beat, the band und   shooting
streams of smoke at the Inown-
Hklntnd foes, (I thought tho army
used smolielesH powder, didn t you?)
Well, I Htepped right out into the
open, to encourage our brave soldier
biddies hy my example and ohelar
them to victory! But. pretty soon
the whole hunch stopped their 100-
yn ids per I en-seconds gftit, got out
tobacco sucks nml brown papers and
proceeded to bo sociable, Ha!
thought I, a truco!
Suddenly a iMinimiiiiihi; voice
snid "All ready! Real it back! Register    fear!     NOW!.'   And  they  did
it all over again.
I turned on my hcpl—mill ary fashion—nnd departed in BCOin, Of all
the nerve! You'd hardly believe it,
but it's a fact that the enterprising
director of this mov|. company asked the commander at Fort RosecranB
to lend him a company of regulars
to chase their hired Mexicans hack
and forth across nn Imaginary borderline, and ho got away with it. I
guess the commander was so dumbfounded at tbe request thnt he didn't
have the presence of mind to tell him
where to go—to get movie actors.
If you over see that film, look for
the distinguished-looking gentleman-
broad of shoulder and trim of waist.
—dressed in civilian garb—surveying
tho war-like scene from a safe distance, like a regular commander.
That is I. There are othltt Exposition sights on the film too. And,
believe mc, just because these moving picture people huve the concession here they needn't think they can
take pictures of me! Next time
they've got to pny cash—no rain-
checks—In   advance.    I'm an   artist.
Yours for tho movlrs
