The Shriners Ball was held in the
Temple on Friday evening when the
room Ras beautifully decorated with

Sag was to be seen in the decoration, as waB also the Canadian flag
entwined with the Stars and Stripes.
At the end of the hall waa to ibe seen

The British Empire
This term stands for the biggest
Bocial and political fact of the modern world. It Includes peoples and
governments of every type and every
clime. In many ways they are lite
one big family, some of its people
have come to full nationhood in self
government; some are just learning
to walk in the path of civilization,
and some are Just getting out of the
cradle of barbarism. But whatever
their differences, from the ends of the
earth they fly 0ne flag and honor one
And lt needs only the call of danger to show tbem all standing together, a family of nations, whose
Patriotism knows no limit.
This great .empire did not come into being suddenly. Five hundred
years ago, England had no possessions beyond tbe sea, and America,
South Africa and Australia had not
even been heard of. People bad no
Idea the world was round. But with
this discovery and the discovery of
the mariner's compass, Europe seemed to wake up (historians call it the
Rennalssance). About this time also
the Turks captured Constantinople,
making very dangerous tbe old trade
routes overland to India and China.
The merchants began to offer great
reward to any one who could discover new ways by which they might get
floods from far away countries.
The Portugese were the first to go
down the west coast of Africa. Then
Columbus representing the Spaniards
sailed westward for seventy daya.
Believing this new found land was
part of India, he called tits islands
The English were excited at the
news of these. discoveries, and Henry
VII. sent out Cabot. He reacted
Newfoundland. For this the' King
gave him a reward of ten pounds.
The entry in Henry's account book
is "To hymn that found the New
Isle, £10." This is tbe oldest colony
of the Empire.'
In general terms, the Empire may
be divided into self-governing Dominions, of which there are four—Canada, South Africa, Australia and
New Zealand. They are all in the
temperate zones, and suitable (or
white people.
The parts witbln the tropics are
all dependencies, which may hs divided into three groups: first ln Asia,
are India (whose population is one-
sixth of the world), Ceylon and Malay Peninsula, second, ln Africa are
Egypt, the Sudan, along the Nile,
Uganda, British East Africa and Nigeria, and in tbe third group are
West Indies and Guinea, together
with hundreds of smaller islands scattered over the seven seas.
that divided South Africa into separate states.
The result of the conference was
tbe Union of South Africa in 1910
comprising Cape Colony, Transvaal,
Natal and the Orange River Colony
That the great area to the north
now known as Rhodesia is part of
the Empire, is due to the personal
imperialism of Cecil Rhodes, wbo
took it as his life destiny to paint
as much of the map as possible a
British red.
Austria's first Immigrants from
'Britain were convicts. From 1776
to 1840, it was the nation's dumping
ground.   In 1850 came the, discovery
No. 40.
New Zealand is tbe youngest ot tbe
colonies, for at the beginning of the
19th century, the Union Jack had
not feven been planted on its shores.
It is made up of two parts, the
North Island and tbe South, together about the size of the British Isles.
The whole country ls very mountainous, and is perhaps the most beautiful of all the Dominions.

K. of ^Evening
The Knights of Pythias held a very
interesting Social last Tuesday in the
Castle Hall. Several members gave
a musical entertainment which was
thoroughly enjoyed hy those present.
Refreshments were served and cigars smoked and a mutually Instructive hour was enjoyed. Of late the
members have been having some Interesting sessions to the advantage
of tbose attending. The work of the
Order Is ever Increasing the attention of the members and arousing
enthusiasm over Ita principles. Tbe
members attending regularly claim to
receive an ever Increasing knowledge
of thto won. and the teaching Involved must perforce have a deep Influence on the lives of each one wben
performing the duties that beset one
in daily life. The lodge le opened
on time and the work expeditiously
gone through whleh leaves sufficient
tlmt for mutual intercourse before
the hour Is too late.
Regimental Ball
The first regimental ball given hy
the East Kootenay regiments was
held In Cranbrook on Tuesday evening In the Auditorium when a large
attendance was present. The decorations were One and were a credit to
the workers. The recently organised
ladles' club provided the refreshments
the proceeds of which were all to go
toward patriotic purposes. The Cranbrook orchestra excellently equipped
themselves and furnished the company with some splendid music.
Of the coming ot Canada into the
Empire in 17C3, by the capture of
Quebec, we are all more or less familiar. In 1839 Lord Durham advised the union of upper and lower Canada, and in the following year tbe
flrst of the daughter parliaments of
the Empire was brought Into being.
They followed In 1867 after many
difficulties the Federations of the old
colony of Canada (now Ontario and
Quebec) Novu Scotia and New Brunswick. •
In 1870 the Government bought all
the lands of the Hudson's Bay Company, now comprising Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta.
One year later the colony of British Columbia was added, so tbat by
1872 the Dominion was complete, the
first and most important of the self-
governing Dominions of the Empire.
South Africa has belonged to Britain since 1805. The early Dutch Inhabitants were left in peace in Cape
Town, but in 1836, because slavery
was abolished throughout all the Empire, thete farmers trekked north
where they could keep tbelr slaves,
They formed Natal (annexed ln 1844)
and the Republics of Transvaal and
Orange Free State.
Nearly the whole history of South
Alrlca since 1836 hat been sn effort
to undo the results of the Great
Trek. The Crown took over Orange
Free State In 1848, and In 1877
Tranavaal (at that time ln trouble
with the natives) was annexed, one
condition being that It wat to' receive responsible government tuch at
had been granted Cape Colony Ave
yeara hefore. Became of delay In fulfilling this promise, there came the
sacrifice of British arms at Majuba
Hill in 1881.

Lagny-Biir-Maine, Monday.
1 arrived at Crecy about 10 o'clock
on Wednesday night by bicycle from
Paris, which, with a companion, I
had left at ten o'clock that morning.
The previous day there had been an
advance guard affair between the
British and the German cavalry,
which resulted in the latter being
driven out of the town where the
British were in occupation wben we
Next morning very early we mounted our bicycles again and started off
in the direction of La Ferte-sous-
Jouarre in perfect weather. Half an
hour's pedalling brought us to a little village, St. Blnndin, whsre we encountered the first signs of German
war-making in France. The village
street was silent and deserted. We
halted outside the only cabaret (tavern) in the place. The shutters were
up. The door was closed and remained closed to our knocking.
Peering through the window we descried ' a woman standing, seemingly
helpless, over an old woman on a
couch. At our cry of "Angjals" tho
younger woman opened tbe door. To]
our request for anything to drink
she > made a mute gesture of despair.
She led tht) way Into the bouse.
A scene of destruction met our eyes.
The Httle, narrow room had been
ransacked. The rows of bottles on
shelves behind the long bar had been
smashed. Amid thit scene of desolation the woman, wife of the innkeeper (who we« with ths French Army),
told me her simple story:—
Tbree daya before a squadron of
German cavalry with a couple of otliers arrived in the village. They
went to the cabaret. The officers
ordered drinks and walked out without paying, and the men followed
their example. After they had drunk
up almost everything at the bar they
demanded champagne, and wben there
wns none—as the woman told ue, Bhe
had none to give—they compelled her
with levelled revolvers to lead ths
way to the cellar. She complied ln
an agony of dread. In the cellar the
men drank all the wine In .bottle and
then turned their attention to the
wine cai'.s. They drank at much as
they could from the casks, took away
pallfuls of the wine they could not
drink, and broke up the remainder of
the casks, heedless of the woman's
tearful laments. Not cog tent wltb
thla wanton destruction the soldiers
killed all the fowls the woman kept,
cut oA her water supply, and finally
carried off all lier winter supply of
A column ot British trdops arrived
after the Germans had left. In accents of warmest gratitude she told
me how the British ofllcers, finding
that the and. her old mother were
practically starving, sent soldiers
with ample supplies of biscuits and
bully beef arid offered them money,
which they would not accept. Of
their own accord the soldiers restored the water connection nnd laid in
a fresh supply of firewood.
Outside the village we fell ln with
two British officers ln a motor-car.
One of them had a face familiar to
m?. Then I remembered where I had
last seen him. It was at the House
of Commons. The officer was Sir
Mark H;» es, M.P., who was on the
road with despatches.
We passed on through Innumerable
French villages, sad and silent, all
showing signs of destruction; here
and thero an old man musing at his
structed cross caught my eye. It surmounted a simple grave dug on the
hillside under the shadow of a bay-
stack and quite close to the road.
ItI was the first Brltleh grave we bad
met. There was an Indescribable solemnity about the; last resting-placo of
this British soldier whose .name and
regimental number a friendly band
had rudely, scrawled on a little cross
of wood. It lay quite remote in the
absolute silence'' of a perfect summer
evening, the, simple cross standing
out against the purple sunset. All
around It lay the evidences of the
battlefield. Half-finished hayricks,
abandoned naycarts, and pitchforks
left on the trampled ground showed
where the haymakers had been surprised by the approach ot battle.
Dead horses, English soldiers' caps,
huge rents torn in the earth by
shells, empty shell and cartridge
cases—such mait.s of war wen; to be
seen on every hand, and in the air
there waB a subtle suggestion of the
charnel-house. ,
Dusk was gathering fast when
about four miles outside La Ferte-
sous-Jouarre the sound dt cannon,
which we had heard intermittently
all day, became mure'dearly audible.
Th'.' Marne runs th'rougli the little
town, which lies on either side ot the
stream in a valley. As we reached
the outskirts a weird spectacle broke
on our gaze. It was a perfect picture df war, in all Its horror, ln all
its majesty, in all its picturesque-
ness. From tbe bills to the right the
British artillery was Bhelling tbe retreating Germans on tbe otber Bide
of the river. The shells were bursting with jets of flame that broto
orange In the gathering darkness; a
couple ol houses, wreathed in flame,
burned fiercely, tbe light reflected in
the peaceful waters of the Marne
which ran at our feet1 past two bridges blown up and ahattered In lamentable state.
When the soands of firing had died
away we quietly alipped down into
the town. Complete darkness had set
in. The Germans on retiring had cut
off the water supply and the electric
light, and the only light ln La Ferte
that nlgbt was afforded by tbe lamps
carried by the soldiers, Down by the
river tbe British engineers were putting the finishing touches to a pontoon bridge—a bridge they finished,
all complete, in about two hours.
Our troops were already preparing
to cross. So swiftly does the British
army move that when we arose with
dawn the next morning we found our
troops had melted away ln the'tnight.
Even the pontoon bridges had disappeared.
That night we found quarters in
the Hotel de Paris, a littlu ■ inn where
shells bad torn away part of the
roof, > and where, even in our bedroom, we had to plaster up the windows, drilled wltb rifle bullets, to
keep out the draught. Two German
ofllcers, whose names "Von der
Golts" and "Von Reutter" wore
scrawled in chalk'on tha bedroom
door, had bad the room before us,
and there were many evidences of a
hasty departure. The landlady told
us that that morning twenty-six German officers had breakfasted, compelling her and her husband and all
their servants to be up at dawn and
to serve thom with the boot the town
could provido before they took tho
holes through which they fired. There
were horrid sights in the streets. 1
counted about thirty-five German
dead, with blackening faces, some
minus a head, a leg, or an arm. The
villages were dragging the bodies
away for burial. I saw tbe smould
erlng ruins of a fine chateau in which
the Germans had installed their mu-
chine-guns and which had been shelled and set on fire by tbe British.
The streets rovealed traces of desperate fighting at close quarters.
Tools of blood still stained the grey
cobblestones. The townspeople told
me of British soldiers firing down tho
narrow streets at the Germane ensconced in houses. Many of th
townsfolk bad picked up helmets and
arms which had been left about the
streets, but which had been all cleared away by tbe time we appeared on
the scene. We were told that the
Germans had occupied La Ferte lor
a few days. The officers mostly paid
for what they took, sometimes witb
Belgian money, but there was some
plundering by the soldiers. Some
shopkeepers who had had the sense.

him notices in German something to

was a profitable one and enjoyed by
all. Mr.'Anderson wns one who took
part In the organization of the Encampment • In Cranhrook and he was
agreeably surprised at the Improvement that has taken place.
Tbat afternoon (Thursday) we left
La Ferte. Outside the town we found
on a hill the grave ot a Highlander.
I d0 not remember ever to bave read
a more touching epitaph that that
which the d;ad man's comrades had
written in pencil on the rough wooden cross, made of strips torn from
an ammunition box. This is it:—
Here lies Private —-1,
No.  , — Highlanders.
Killed in action.
He was a good pal.
From the cross hung bis great-coat,
the back all torn by a shell.
We proceeded In the direction o
Chateau Thierry. A few miles outside we came across a small British J
convoy returning with a batch oi
120 German prlsonera, including eight
officers and a Rod Cross doctor. The
British convoy consisted only of
sergeant and six men. They told me
tlint they were returning to fetch
supplies when the detachment of Germans came out of tbe woods and
stood with their hands up. They will-
inly accompanied the ludicrously
small BritlBh force, for they were

Mr. C. Godfrey Isaacs, director of
the English Marconi Company, says
Mr. Marconi's discovery was no doubt!
due to a new and more powerful direction gulder which he had recently
"In the ordinary course, and from
an ordinary station," said Mr. Isaacs, "Mr, Marconi would have discovered some high-power station that
was not known, working somewhere.
This would make him suspicious; be
would search for it, and would be
ahle to gauge by the strength of the
signals, roughly the number of miles
It was away trom him.
"After a perusal of tbe records of
stations at the Berne Marconi Bureau It would bo an easy matter for
him to locate with the new direction
gulder almost the precise spot where
tho station had been erected."

20th YEAR
CRANBROOK, B.O     October 3, 1914.
No. 40.
It has been brought to the ProB-' Black, Agnes McCoach, Frank Roy,
pector's notice that there are a num- Ivy Sanderson, Edbar Sanderson,
ber of bona-fide citizens willing to [ Kenneth McNeil, Dorothy Hailing,
pay .their taxes and water rates, for! Bessie Ritchie, Jobn Rohb, Sydney
which they are In arrears, by giving, Troup,
their labors in building the dam for
the new waterworks. In answer to
this we asked tbe question "In case
or the wages due amounting to more
than the arrearage of taxes how
would you expect the city to meet
the payments?" "By giving those
employed notes or something we
could give to the merchants for the
goods we may purchase during the
winter months.' These might be given for a month, two months, three
or six months, as the case would
most benefit tho city treasury." In
explaining this scheme we were told
that the parties would be willing to
do the work as a subcontract from
the contractor, or work under the
contractor, or any way the city
thought best so long as the wo;t:
was provided to enable us to pay of!
our taxes and provide vituals for
the coming winter. Whatever scheme
was provided it would be necessasy
for the merchants to co-operate with
tbe city officials in doing trade with
the men requiring merchandise, and
to take the papers given for the work
in lieu of ready caBh. If such a
scheme could be worked out to mutual advantage tbe larger part of
the work in building the dam and in
laying the pipes for the system
throughout the city could be done
without any great hardship on anyone and the work attt'ndant in endeavoring to obtain money for city
bonds considerably eliminated. There
is one difficulty that would have, to
be faced if the above scheme was
worked out. There is ever hefore the
merchants'the danger that the banks
would not discount the notes given
which would m„'on that the merchant
would have to keep them in his safe
until they matured. In case of Buch
pOMfbllity oould not the Mayor umi
ttlderrafin consult the bankers and
see if some arrangement could not be
made to suit the needs?

Ab your appointed delegate from
tbe local W. 0, T. U. I beg to submit the following report:
The thirty-first annual convention
of the Womens Christian Temper
ance Union of British Columbia opened Tuesday morning, June itith, in
thfl Metropolitan Methodist Church,
kindly loaned for the occasion.
Mrs. Bpoflord, provincial president,
occupied the chair, and was accompanied on the platform by Mrs. M.
A. Cunningham of New Westminster,
vice-president, Mrs. Brown of Van
couver treasurer, Mrn. 1,. T. Royden
of Victoria, corresponding secretary,
and Mrs. Wright of Jubilee, recording secretary.
The ebursh was artistically decor
ateil with masses of whit' roses,
carnations ami Iceland poppies and
the strikingly beautiful banners of
the different branches with the Union's motto, "For Cod ami Home
and Native Land."
Proceedings opened with the singing of the Crusade hymn and the
Crusade psalm and prayer, led by
Mrs. Cunningham, after which various reports were presented by the
superintendents of diftsrent depart
incuts. Mrs. Irvine of Nanalmo presented a report on Anti-Narcotics.
She mentioned the work that had
been done by diflererent Unions, and
She Ib the preaident of the National
W.C.T.U. of Belgium and is making
a tour around thu world. She was
introduced by Mrs. A. E. Mitchell,
and gave a short and encouraging
Soon afterwards the meeting adjourned to partake of an excellent
luncheon prov id'tl by the Ladies'
Aids of the Presbyterian churches.
Promptly at two o'clock the ladies
again assembled In the church, and
the concluding business left over
from the morning session was dls
posed of before beginning on the af
ternoon programme.
The report of the Credentials Committee was the next business dealt
with, This took some considerable
time ns all the delegates had to be
given their proper seats, I was very
much afraid at one time that I
would not he given a seat in the
convention on account of the aftllla
tions fees not reaching there in time.
Tbey Jaid great stress on that, these
fees must be paid; if paid Cranbrook
would be allowed three delegates.
However, thoy Rave me a hearty welcome, seeing that I came i.'iom the
farthest point in the province and
that tbe union did not assist me in
my expenses, but that I bore them
myself in order to ta'<e back a report of the convention to the union.
according to her report a great deal!This being concluded a lengthy and
has be*n accomplished along this; fully-detailed treasurer's report was
line, some of the union? having splen- j presented by Mrs. Brown ■ in the undid reports an.i so much uood had avoidable absence of Mrs. A. J.
been accomplished for our boys and j Perkins. The grand total of receipts
girls of this land. They had pven for the year amounted to $8,247.49.
found that there is a remedy for the j Mr. Eaton, a miBBionary from Cal-
terrible cigarette habit, and it isjeutta, was then introduced and he
given in much the same manner as | gave a short talk of. his work in In-
tbe Neal treatment for the liquor hab-; dia and of his errand hour;, which
it, it only requiring a three-day i was a very sad one. His wife took
treatment,   the    treatment   being   a I seriouBly   ill    whtn   they arrived   in
wash for the mouth and a   medicine
to bc taken internally.
They guarantee a sure cure,
Mrs, Cunningham reported on the
Sunday School work, and a good report was given and advises that every teacher in all Sunday Schools
should Insist that each of the children Bhould si^n the pledge and B
small badge be given to all who
sign. This was recommended very
strongly by the convention.
Scientific Temperance Instruction
in Public Schools was forcefully dealt
with by Mra. Wells. She Informed
us that It is compulsory this year
for all teachers to teach. scientific
temperance. Up till last year it was
left optional with the teachers as to
whether it was taught or not, and
moBt of them preferred not to teach
it, as it took up too much time, but
I believe that temperance and hygiene should be taught and demonstrated to show the children the evil
effects that alcohol has on the body,
etc. By demonstration the children
are more abh to grasp the terrible
effects df liquor on the system, thereby producing a more lasting effect on
the child's mind.
The work accomplished by parlor
meetings was interestingly recounted
by Mrs. Pickurd of Victoria.
Mrs. PU'.ard as provincial superintendent gave the number of meetings
held by the different unions, and of
how much good was being accomplished by these interesting and instructive meetings.    The Convention
Ask thc woman whose home is an ideal of
homliness, of good management and economy,
how she keeps posted on the best methods of do-
inf.; thin,;*:, of the best things to wear and the
most healthful and nutritious food to serve the

appeal to them through their source of information, the advertising columns of this paper.

An encouraging report of progress
was given by tbo corresponding secretary, Mrs. Hoyden. Legislation to
effect the early closing of saloons
had been obtained, nnd now the
great need was for go d licensing
commissioners to be elected by the
An intel'sting Interlude iu the business of the nesslon was tho Introduction by Mrs. Frank Andrews of
the Hev. Dr. Scott, pastor of the
Metropolitan church, who nTered a
few words of congratulation nnd
praise to the W.C.T.U. ror iis splendid work. Ue suld he was uroiid to
be able to loan to the W.i'.T.U. his
chureh to hold their convention In

Victoria and is still very ill In the
hospital. He als,, brought two little
Hindu girls to educate them in the
I'nited States for teachers to go
1 ack and help the missionaries there
but found on reaching here that tbe
authorities would not let them land
under the immigration act, and they
were detained at the detention home
in Victoria.
The president's address was the
next item on the programme. The
keynote of her address was the
"Bow of Promise," the bow that according to scriptural promise "Shall
be set in the clouds." Speaking of
the dense clouds of evil which at
times threatened to obscure the sun,
Mra. Bpoflord said the darkest cloud
which befogged the world was the legalized drini' traffic. The great problems of evil were all concentrated in
this, and as advancement waB made
In every other phase of life, so and
only so would be reached the solution of the drink problem. The better housed, the better educated, the
better reared race, the more intelligent and humane it would become,
snd when intelligence and the instincts of humanity preponderated
the rule of the liquor traffic would be
banished. Too largely did alcohol
stand guilty of the charge "first
cause' or "contributory to ' poverty, disease, crime, insanity, degeneracy and vice, and at least four
countries were making rapid progress
toward Its absolute prohibition, viz,
Norway, Benmark, Sweden and Iceland. In the United States, too,
prohibition was gaining by leaps
and bounds, and great progress was
being made in the overseas dominions of New Zealand and Australia,
while in the Dominion of Canada the
provinces of Quebec and Ontario continued steadily to add to their prohibition territory.
The Prairie Provinces, Mrs. Spof-
ford went on to say, were developing
a strong no-license sentiment, despite their foreign population, but ot
progress in this province tbere was
unfortunately little to record. The
hours of sale had been restricted at>d
sixteen licenses had been cancelled,
yet the movement waB not on the
retrbat, but steadily marking time.
The only argument against prohtbl-;
tlon was that It was not effective
and did not prohibit, This was not
basic or moral; the fact of failure to
enforce was no argument ngalnst the
expediency, much less tho moral is-
Hiie Involved nnd ultimately nil
questions must be settled by mora'
standards if man'Ind. was to be saved from self-effacement.
In concluding Mrs, Bpoflord referred to the great loss sustained by the
W.C.T.U. In the death of Mrs.Steele,
president of the World's W.C.T.U.,
who, however, bad died in the faith
that temperance wns to win the dny
in the long run. This, said the
speaker, should bu sought for through
the mlucatton ot the children and the
vote of. the wom).n and  in order to
obtain the latter co-operation   witb
other organizations seeking the   lini !
lot should be sought.
Following this address Mrs. A. 10. ,
Mitchell, president of tbe Central |
Union, rose to extend the greeting of
the/entertaining unions to the visit-.
ing delegates. This she did in a few j
graceful words, in which she stated
that the sentiment ot sympathetic
fellowship extended by oue to another was the most valuable factor of
hospitality, and the most helpful
bond In tMdr work. EUio also stated
that in the recent Digest it wub ro-1
ported that tho men engaged In tho
liquor traffic would provide the pro-!
prl'ators of the various "drink cures" t
with lists of their regular patrons if
they were paid (or It. I

aud sometimes discouraging work,
Mrs. Ralph Smith of Vancouver
was greeted with applaino whon sh:'
rose to speak, the chairman having
previously announced that iu all |
probability sho would speak about
the enfranchisement of women. This
nhe did, explaining that she had
wautl'd the vote ever since she wns
\ nee-hl h. Francis Willard had sa1 |
sometime near the close of her lif<?
that if she had tho years to live
over again she would fight for the
emancipation of women instead of
temperance. I
Women must be free if soclnl ideals
were to be accomplished. The woman who wanted the propeety vote
only was seltish; property was good,
but there were batter things to protect thnn property. The laws of
British Columbia relating to women
were deplorable, she declared. Mr.
Henderson, speaking last year to the
Women's Canadian Club in Vancouver, had informed his hearers that the
laws effecting women in this province
went back to the time of Charles I.;
many of them to the time of Moses.
The women of thiB country were living in the.twentieth century, and demanded twentlath century laws. For
thirteen yeara, she Baid, an effort
had been made to put through the
legislature laws relating to the
guardianship of children and the giving,of equal rights to.parents in this
respect. But the effort had always
been thwarted. The women would
never he satisfied until they had
equal rights with the fathers fn the
guardianship of their own children.
Tbe demand was not unreasonable.
People lifted up their hand3 in horror when the marriage laws relating
to the girl children in India were
mentioned;  but nothing     was     said

hail this great movement sprung   up |
during the last few generations?   Because it was not so many years ago
since   this   home was the workshop,
the mill, the factory.   But the   advent of machinery   had changed   all
that.   Everything was   done   outside
of the home, in the factories, and the
women had been forced to go out of
tbeir home to work.   Here the struggle for   existence; too often    forced
them to the wall, although they had
proven in no   uncertain way    tbiiir
ability and power to succeed.     With
I ull their advantages the men had not
I Kone on so quickly; there were   duties which they had shirked, respon-

say that this was never practiced,

this province did not matter one

the marriage had to he suspended
until the consent of the father could
be obtained. The duy had yet to

who had passed away during the last
year. The splendid work of the late
Mrs. Lillian Stevens, first vice-president of the World's W.C.T.U. and
national president ot the United
States Union, was recalled, and
among others touchlngly referred to
were i Mrs. Lethbury ot the United
States, and the following members of
the Provincial Union, Mrs. Jennie
Stewart of Esqutmalt, Mrs. Brown of
Chilliwack, Mrs. Macklln of Ladner,
Mrs. Harper and Mrs. Graham of
Mount Pleasant, Mrs. C. S. Williams
of Mission City, Mrs. Pears ot New
Westminster, and Rev. F. O. Lett,
honorary member from Grand'piew,
all of whom had passed away during
the paftt twelve months.
At the conclusion ot tbe Bervice tbe
meeting adjourned to partake of a
very inviting lunch prepared for them
by the associated Ladies AldB of the
Baptist and Congregational Churches
in Victoria.
The afternoon session opened with
a report of the Wlllard Lodge, Vancouver, presented by Mrs, Barber.
This home for girls waB most interestingly described, and reasons were
given tor Its establishment. A valuable report on Moral Education was
then given by Mrs.' Thompson, followed by reports on the world missionary work by Mrs. Priestley and
on the curfew law by Mrs. Halllday.
A charming interlude in the work
followed when Mrs. J. L. McNaugh-
ton, tVi honorary president of the
union, waa invited to the platform
to receive a bouquet of lovely mauve
sweet peas and fern. These were
gratefully acknowledged by Mrs. Mc-
Naughton in a few words, touching In
their very simplicity.
The address given by the Baroness
de Laveleye was the new item of interest. Opening with greetings from
the International W.C.T.U. convention, the speaker was the bearer alBo
of a personal message trom the late
Mrs. Lillian Stevens, whose sad
death recently occurred. The Baroness bas just completed a world tour
in the cause of temperance and hit
comments on the work in various
parts of the globe were listed to
with eager Interest. In Belgium, she
said, there were 20,000 saloons, equaling 1 to every 34 people, yet this
was the first country to prohibit the
sale of absinthe. France, however,
was tha country most to be pitied.
Not only was there a rapidly decreasing population, but the standard
of efficiency for army and navy had
been lowered on account of the diminishing vitality. Bhe urged the
manufacture of nilfermented wines as
a regular drink instead of Intoxicants and then prohibition.would not
injure the livelihood of grape growers ln France and Italy and other
At tbe conclusion of her interesting
address which was interspersed
throughout with sparkling humor,
the Baroness was presented with a
volume df views ot the Province as
a memento of her visit, the little
ceremony being performed by Mra.
Livingstone, on behalf of the convention.
The Rev. Dr. Scott spoke a few
words In explanation of the views of
his church on the matter of temperance reform, with particular regard
to the prohibition problems ln Brit
ish Columbia.
The remainder of the session was
taken up with the plan of work for
the ensuing year, and several Important recommendations wcr_> made. It
being decided to leave the details of
thc various matters to be arranged
by the sub-executive committee.
Nominations for superintendents of
the various departments resulted aB

THIS noble lover of Liberty was to his beloved Hungary what Patrick Henry was to American IndependenavGive me Liberty or
give me death" meant to Kossuth all that made life worth the living. He lived for ninety-two years, and his long and honorable
career was devoted solely to secure lor Hungary National Independence. R>r it he suffered imprisonment and exile, tht it he
worked as few men have ever worked. His fiery soul was expressed in his writing, and his impassioned oratory thundered acres
the two continents. All the world read and listened to this higfvsouled Hungarian Patriot. When exiled our government sent the U S.
Steamer Mississippi to Turkey and brought him to our shores as die guest of the Nation.lo-day we have millions of Hungirian citizens,
each one a lover of Personal Liberty lo secure it they sought our shores, and to a man they will fight to die death to keep forever alive
the spirit and letter of our immortal Declaration of Independence.They make good citizens, and like Kossuth detest prohibitory enact-
merits which make the many suffer for the faults of the very few. Rt centuries Hungarians have as a nation bcen moderate users of
barieybtews and light winesTheir votes are always registered against any legislation which proposes to regulate human diet by
law. "TTiou shalt NOTeat this—thou shalt NOTdrink that"—to those of brave Hungarian blood is insufferable tyranny. For 57
years Anheusa^Busch have been proud to serve their Hungarian patrons/Tliey have helped to make the sales of their great brand

Following this, the Rev. William
Stevenson then gave a carefully considered speech on "Social Service
Ideals" which was appreciated by
the large audience. Miss Klimbet.li
Gordon, whose splendid work is becoming ho well known in tbis district, was the next speaker, and her
account of experiences, though restrained and calm, would huve been
poignant in the extreme had it not
heen illuminated by her wonderful
happiness in service. Some, very
practical suggestions were made by
her with regard to proper supervision of places of amusement.
The convention closed with prayer
and an anthem beautifully sung by

of Vancouver, the W. M. Grand Mistress of the B. C. Ladies' Orange

that wag going on in the Dominion
and eulogised the women who made
great sacrifices when the call came
for their husbands to take up arms
to defend the honor of the Empire.
The dreadful carnage caused by the
British infantry fire is in a certain
measure due to the magnificent arm

the other a dial sight with a peep

of 180 yards further than the French
weapon, and approximately 613 yards
in 'excess of either the German Mauser or Austrian Mannlicher.

"And how can men die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the'ashes of bis Fathers,
And tbe Temples of his (Jods?"
The ladies of England have set an
excellent example in connection with
the wearing of mourning for dear
ones lost at the 'front. Thoy are almost a unit in denouncing the u?e of
tbe usual black habiliments of woe.
Tbey consider that this custom is
but the perpetuation of a pagan rtte,
tlmt it bas nothing to recommend it,
thnt it is alien to the Christian
creed, and In addition that on the
ground of extravagance it is Indefensible Tbey have consequently decided to recommend the wearing of a
single band of whito cloth upon the
arm, und th'1 idea has beon received
with such general approval lint it is
likely to become the distinctive feature among those who, alas! wiil
hnve to sufior bereavement.   Thc idea
is so good that it should be copied
everywhere, and if the Daughters of
the Empire exhibit as soun:l a discretion in thia matter as the Daughters of England among the many ex-
crecences which will be swept away
by the present war, wiil he the senseless and depressing custom of wearing "black." Well does a Mother
writing to the "Dally Mail" say, "I
regard the offering of a beloved lite
in such a cause with solemn pride,
not as a personal bereavement, but
as a national sacrifice."
A clergyman in the pulpit was a
f.'Ui'fiil expounder of right and wrong,
but in the domestic circle maintained, for prudential reasons, considerable reserve of speech and action. On
one occasion, when this divine visit-
od a neighboring town, the editor o.
the only paper there, which never
failed to rotiee the presence of a
stranger in town, offered tbe following, so worded ns to prove unwittingly '..eon:
"Doctor Carrol is once more
among us for a brief stay. He says
and doeH exactly as he thinks right
without regard to the opinion pr beliefs nf others. His wife is not with
Little Girl:   "No, I am not   English.   I.was born  in France."
Lady:   "Which  part,  dear?"
Little Girl:   "Why, all of me."
