Prominent t'ltlarna of the Windermere
District Leave All to Answer the
Cnll of the Empire.
Invermere, B. C. Feb. 10th, 1916.—
Ten more men faithful and true left
the Windermere Mining Division last
week In answer to their Empire's call
for arms. Prom here they proceeded
North to the recruiting station and
from there will pass on Into the ranks
of the 172 regiment. Of the number
in James Butterfleld, of Wilmer, a
man leaving his wife and one child.
Mr. Butterfleld Ib the eldest son of Mr.
Butterfleld of Wyndell, near Creston,
B. C. This father has had the proud
distinction of seeing at least four sons
join the ranks along with Godfrey
Vlgne, a son by adoption. The last
son whose name ls just mentioned goes
back probably to old fields, for prior
to coming to Canada some three years
ago he had the distinction of being
the correspondent for the Balkan
States of "The Echo", London, Eng.,
and in this capacity resided in Budapest. He Is accompanied by his young
brother-in-law, James MacKay, a son
of Mr. and Mra. Colin Mackay, originally from Inverness. Still another
Scotch lad on the contingent Is William Stewart of Athalmer who emigrated direct to this part from Edinburgh fn the spring bf 1912.
The local Gold Club suffers a loss
In Cyril C. ("Commodore") Barker who
Is off for the colors. Mr. Barker is
a keen, clean out-of-door sportsman
ln any field. He has also had his experience as a soldier holding the South
African medal with seven clasps.
Stiir another is Frank Hulme, of the
Gait Ontario Hulmes, and nephew of
the Brodgen family of South Calgary.
He Is a civil engineer by profession
and for some time past has practised
Mb profession with his brother-in-law
Mr. Harold E. ForBter, M. P. P. The ,
father and mother of Mr. Hulmo are at
present residing at Wetwasklwin, Alta. i
Of the others Is Thomas Wm. Tur-
ner, of Wilmer, who has given over
till ranch leaving It to the tender care i
of his wife, one young son, nnd three
small daughters. Before coming to
this part Mr. Turner was a hooking
cletk on an English railway. He ls
fifty-one years of age.
Others accompanying are Albert Ed-1
ward Powell, at one time on the London Stock Exchange; Harry Matthews,
John Strath, of Sinclair and Quacken-
A winter such as we have experienced tliis year may nave its disadvantages all right, but even admitting
its drawbacks there are few people
who would not prefer It to sweltering
ln tlie heat ut a temperature of from
10G to UO degrees In the shade. Mr,
A. E. Parker, who arrived ln Cranbrook Tuesday from Melbourne, Australia, says that tho Sunday beforo lie
left that city tlie thermometer hovered
around 105 In the shade.
This is the summer season In that
i far-off portion of the great British
j Empire, and the Inhabitants are swel-
Wlll Commence nn Saturday Next ud | taring In a torrid heat which reaches
Continue for Eight Days.
In this supreme struggle for liberty
of human rights (rights of human lib*
erty) it behooves cveiy single person
of every Christian community to put
forth every lota of help that ls possible. Most of us cannot go to the
front and many of us cannot assist In
other tangible ways but all of ub can
exert a power that is just beginning to
be generally realized, and particularly
by those who ln the stress of circumstances are face to face with the superhuman endurance that Is necessary
to face the appalling conditions of the
present war, and that ls the strength
and tremendous Influence that corporate prayer can exert.
This Ib not a matter of church, of
eccleBlasticism, but of pure religion
which 1b so much older and natural
that any church, and Ub influence can
be exerted In any direction If only the
will'Is behind the prayer.
Admiral Beatty, In his admirable appeal for the prayers of all, recognizes
the power of this force, and the time
Is now at hand when the prayers of
everyone are earnestly requested to
Invoke the blessm? or Almighty God
that victory may rest with the Allied
Nations. With this end partly ln view
a world wide mission ls being organized and which will commence here in
Cranbrook on the 19th Instant and
continue for eight days'. Every person
who has the welfare of his nation nt
heart Is specially Invited regardless of
any affiliation.
The Mission Is to be conducted by
the Rev. W. H. Simpson, Rector of
Rorsland, who had such a merciful
escape from the wreck of the "Lusltanla", a man well known for the fervor and power of his religion. The
subjects of the Mission are advertised
elsewhere fn with other information ln
reference, and it is earnestly desired
that everyone should bear this date
in mind viz 19th to 26th Feb Inclusive,
ond be present at as many meetings
as possible.
as high as 110 In the shade. Mr. Parker stated to a Herald representative
that the summer heat there Is almost
Intolerable at times. With a North
wind blowing at this season of the
year he says the breeze feels like
"a blast from hell". To explain this,
to ub, seeming anomaly, It must be
remembered that Australia Is south of
the equator and a "North* 'wind for
them means a breeze direct from the
torrid zone.
Mr, Parker, however, would not wish
to be considered a knocker of Australia by any means. He thinks that
It is a real "White Man's Country."
Times are good, cost ot living is reasonable, work plentiful and .wages high.
The labor unions are very strong
throughout the commonwealth, and the
government ls socialistic enough to
protect the laboring man from the
grasping clutches of the capitalists by
stringent regulation of prices, etc.
The cost of living, Mr. Parker says,
has risen considerably since the commencement ot the war, but ls still
very much lower than here.
Frost Is hardly known In Australia,
five degrees of frost being the lowest
ever recorded. Water pipes and taps
are situated outside the house without any covering, and plumber's bills
for thawing or repairing frozen pipes
are an unknown Item. MI sorts of
tropical flowers and plants grow In
abundance, while Melbourne possesses
probably the finest botanical gardens
ln the world.
Mr. Parker-has been employed in
the large government printing offlce
In Melbourne for the last twelve
months, but has returned to Cranbrook
to be with his wife and family here.
He left Australia on the 10th of January, on the steamer Mnkura, the
trip to Vancouver taking 23 days. The
scheduled time Is 21 days, but the
steamer was detnyed by heavy storms;
early on the voyage and forced to lay,
up for 48 hours.
One of the other passengers on the
same steamer was Premier Hughes of
Australia, who makes the statement
that by June 1st next Australia will
have 300,000 men in the field at the

this winter than for many years. While
this has compelled many logging operators to suspend activities for the

A. A. Williams Is Awarded First for
his Showing of White
The first of thc fortnightly meetings
of the Cranbrook Poultry Association
was held on Friday,, February llth, ln
the store formerly occupied by
Stephens grocery, afid by the. number
of birds on exhibition, and the Interest
shown, it looked Uke a revival of old
ln spite of the deep snow, the Wyandotte breeders were there with fourteen birds, among wntch were some
splendid specimens of Whites, Columbian and Partridge. The judging was
In the hands of Mr. C. R. Sheppard,
who proved himself thoroughly capable of handling tlie job. Taking into
consideration the fact that the White
Wyandottes have reached such a high
state of perfection as a breed, and that
Cranhrook has always been noted for
quality in this class, tt was no easy
matter for Mr. Sheppard to decide
which waa the best Bird. However,
he at last decided that A. A. Williams'
white hen had a little the best of It
all points considered, and therefore
awarded Mr. Williams the sack of
wheat, which had been put up for a
prize. Mr. Harris was complimented
on the splendid condition of his birds
and a number of the members are of
the opinion that Mr. Harris could
give us some valuable pointers on winter feeding.
A notable feature of this meeting
was the appearance of one or two old
timers of the association among the
crowd. We hope tliey will continue
to drop In on us, and can assure them
a hearty welcome at any time. It was
decided thnt at the next meeting of
the association which will be held on
Friday, Feb. 25th, all varieties of Orpingtons will be staged. The judging
will be In the hands of A. H. Webb,
and A. B. Smith. A hearty vote of
thanks was tendered to Mr. FInnesey
for his donation of the sack of wheat
to which Mr. FInnesey replied In a
few well chosen words, complimenting
the members on ttic quality of the
birds shown.
Monster Rally to be Held on Sunday,
Feb. 91) h In Knux Church.
A monster rally of all the Sunday
Schools of this city comprising nearly
400 children uud ollicers ls to take
place on Sunday, February 20th In
the Knox Presbyterian Church and to
which parents and friends are invited.

prepdred and will be under the direction of tlie local branch of the W.
c; t. u.
Two of the silver medallists will
give elocutionary selections and vocal
solos as well as a special selection of

One Item which promises to be of
more than ordinary interest is a
blackboard talk on temperance topics
which Is to be given by Rev. W. K.
Thomson, pastor of Knox church. It is
also expected that the Rev. Simpson
of Rossland, who will be In the city
for that day, will also take an Interesting part In the proceedings.
This Is a splendid opportunity of
Impressing upon the puhlic ot Cranbrook the extent of the Sunday School
work that is being done and ought to
be taken advantage of by every school
worker and scholar.
The W. C. T. U. is to be congratulated upon their enterprise and deserve the support and encouragement
of the children of this city.
Kaslo Kootenalan:— The measles
epidemic, which had apparently been
held ln check until last Wednesday,
appeared that day to break out In
nearly every kid In the town, and within a few hours the whole place was
spotted, and a lot ot happy homes
were under quarantine. The schools
were closed nnd fumigated. By Friday the hopelessness of quarantine
measures was realized and the ban
lifted, It being decided to let the malady run Its course. By Sunday over
one hundred nnd eighty cases were
reported and the home that haB escaped Is considered lucky.

bound to be popular in a mining constituency such as Hossland. In Vancouver Mr. M. A. Macdonald, though
a capable orator and campaigner. Is
hampered by the Jealousies and dls-
seniions of the party which should be

Tisdall, Minister of Public Works, him
self an old and successful business
man of Vancouver, Is expected to have
a walk-over.

you and I know there Is such an article to be had as Pears' Soap.
The future of Cranhrook la so
bound up with the development of our
near-by mineral resources in gold,
silver, lead, zinc, copper und molybdenite and Iron, that no apology Is
needed for insisting, uml persistently
repeating that we are not doing our
duty with regard to the wealth with
which nature has endowed our district. What we lack, taking us In
the mass, ls knowledge of the facts
as they really exist.. Just because
we do not know, we are prone, in our
very great laziness, to think that thc
statements of the man who has learn
ed his facts along the mountains are
so much "hot-air", so much exaggeration. And the more profound our
Ignorance the greater the depth of our
unbelief, Some of us arc so lazy that
It bores us to be told that there Is
work to be done und something to be
accomplished even by ;i mere active
faith In the resources of our country.
It Is not given to all of us to so love
the lure of the quest tor the wealth
that nature hides In her rugged breast
In the hearts of our mountains and In
the gravels born of the destruction of
the glaciers of the lee age, as to
risk our ease by lonely streams and
along peaks blasted by the lightnings
and the awful frosts of unnumbered
winters. We cannot oach of us
prospectors, but wc can, at tiny rate
give him Intelligent sympathy In the
very important work hc does for the
public. More than that, we can each
of us get behind any legitimate project promoted in the locality and If It
have the marks of genuineness, wc
can push It along, and push back the
knocker and the crape hanger who
lurk around for the destruction of
evtry enterprise. W*s shall all benefit directly or indirectly by tho development of our raw materials. If
we can but get one enterprise going
it will be all the easier to get the
second on Its feet and running. The
biologists teach that man Is a laughing animal. He Is also, pre-eminently, a grabbing animal. Lot one fellow have something redolent of tho
"long green" and the still more succulent yellow, nnd the other fellow
wants with all his power to grab, get,

There Is consternation among the
Vancouver Liberals over the disaffection of J. P. McConnell and his volte-
face attacks on his former friends. Mr.
McConnell Is a well-known newspaper
man In the Held of Western journalism
and possesses more than the average
share of ability. For many years he
was a strong Liberal and high up ln
tho party councils. He was formerly
editor of the defunct Vancouver Saturday Sunset, and later of the Daily Sun
and his revelations of the 'inside dope*
about the Sun, the Liberal organ of
the coast metropolis, makes Interesting reading to outsiders. His new
weekly, known as "J. P.'s Weekly,
gives promise of little peaco of mind
for his previous colleagues.
In the Hrst Issue a strong tribute ls
paid to tlie strength of Premier Bowser's new cabinet. "No one can deny"
he declares editorially, "Tthat the Inclusion of Messrs. Tisdall, Campbell
and Flumerfelt will bring new and
Important Btreugth to the cabinet,"
The approaching bye-olectlon in
Vancouver in which the Hon. C, E.
Tisdall, Minister of Public WorkB, is
to be opposed by M. A. Macdonald,
gives J.p.'a Weekly a chance to score
on his former political co-workors,
A recent issue to hand contains a
strong attack on "Tho political purity of M. A. Macdonald" by Bruce
(McConnell s pen-name) charging that
Vancouver Sun solicited the Can'
(Victoria Week)
Everyone agrees that it is almost
entirely due to the soldiers that
Victoria ls not still snowed lu. The
City Fathers sat back and did nothing.
It Is a week since the blizzard, yet
there Is not one single crossing swept
across the Government Street. There
has been no attempt to enforce the
law for clearing sidewalks, and snow
from roofs has been shovelled on
walks already swept, and allowed to
remain there. I am not a kicker, but
I must say that In twenty years spent
In Canada I have never seen such
neglect to grapple with what in the
East would bave been regarded as a
very moderate snow storm. Our business streets could, and should, have'
been cleared long ago. The only people benefitting by the present conditions are the doctors, the undertakers
and thc shoemakers. The stores are
"paying the piper" for the neglect.
Majesty's forces, but this canker, tt la
to be regretted, Is not only able to
work its despicable way ln Canada,
but It Is also a prevalent disease In
England, and lt Ib fortunate that tbe
Individuals, or bodies, who attempt to
serve their own interests at the «•
pense ot the lives or men, are gradually becoming, by exposure, a negligible quantity.
There Is one Incontrovertible tact,
which I think his most bitter opponents would stoutly uphold, that tbe
Minister or Militia does not care a Jot
(I would like to use a more expressive
word) for all the mayors and Incorporations of Canada where Military
efficiency is concerned.
The Board of Trade were endeavoring to secure equipment for the Cranbrook recruits with the Intention that
they were to remain In Cranbrook for
the winter to receive their preliminary
training In accordance wtth the desire
of the Minister of Militia. The authorities at the coast, for some reason
or other (I trust It was not an unpatriotic one) have been holding back
the supplies, and It was white correspondence was going on between the
Board of Trade and the coast authorities, that Colonel Warden Jumps
into Cranbrook and corrals the bulk of
recruits for "Warden's Warriors."
Tbere are no files on Colonel Warden,
and we take off our hats to him, but
there Is little doubt, he put one over
on Craubrook and Incidentally the
Minister of Militia.
With this explanation, I trust that
Mr. Bridge will disabuse his mind that
any political or business Influences
are at work ln Cranbrook ln conflict

of $50,000, that it rinally received and
accepted $6,000 and thnt M. A. Macdonald knew of this and still remained
a director of The Sun. On the front
page he makes the following further
comments on his charges:
M. A. Macdonald has publicly charged that Mackenzie & Mann used corrupt methods to carry out their railway projects In this province. M. A.
Macdonald wus himself a party to an
•attempt to corrupt the Canadian North*
ern by soliciting $86,000 to $50,000 for
tho funds of the Sun newspaper. M. A.
Macdonald, us a director of the Sun
himself, con explain what the Sun
proposed to give to Mackenzie & Mann
In exchange for such a ImndBome
When F. C. Wade mado a roar a-
bont thc $5,000 which was finally obtained after much solicitation and It
was promised to him by the other directors thnt the money would bo returned, and It wns not returned, and
Wade was deceived, M. A. Macdonald
was a party to the deceit. After Wade
matle another roar about the recett
M. A. Macdonald continued as a director of the Sun. M. A. Macdonald
moved the resolution In 1913 that made
Wade dictator of thc Sun's editorial
policy. And at the very moment he
moved the resolution Wade was being
deceived by the other directors.
M. A. Macdonald Is not the man to
talk nbout either the corrupt methods
of Mackenzie & Mann or the Dominion
Trust scandals In view of the scandals
in connection with the Sun, Just as
noisome as those of the Dominion
These charges I have brought before the public for n month, and
neither M. A. Mncdonald nor any of
the other directors have dared to contradict them.

for opinions expressed by
Editor The Herald, Cranbrook, B. C.
Dear sir:—Kindly permit me to
make a few remarks in reply to the
excellent letter of Rev. W. H. Bridge
in the last edition of your paper referring to the withdrawal of the recruits from Cranbrook. In gentle, but
none tlle leas emphatic worde, Mr.
Bridge conveys, the Impression that
the Board of Trade and Conservatlva
Executive, and I presume all those
who voiced their sentiment In the action taken, arc guilty of unpatrtotism,
on tlie ground that tliey were placing
the needs of the Empire In a subservient position to the Interests of Crubrook, and I feel that his remark*
should not be allowed to pass unchallenged.
The citizens of Cranbrook are second to none In their loyalty and patriotism and in their determination to
allow no business interests to stand
in the way of our duty to thc Empire,
and had it been shown on unimpeachable authority that the Military situation demanded that the Cranbrook recruits at once Join a Battalion, the
men who woudl stand up and say nay.
would Indeed be traitors to their country and deserving of a much stronger
censure than that given by Mr. Bridge.
Mr. Bridge's unlmpeachrble authority Is apparently Colonel Warden, and
It Is evident that he did not read tbe
speech of the Minister of MIIMIa,
Major General, Sir Bam Hughes, In.the
House of Commons at Ottawa a few
weeks ago, when hc laid particular
stress on his desire that units should
receive their preliminary training in
the towns and cities from which they
recruited. His obvious reason being,
the encouragement of recruiting. I
venture to suggest, with all doe respect to Colonel Warden and Mr.
Bridge, that the unimpeachable autlv
orlty ln Canada Is with the Minister
ot Militia.
It Is, unfortunately, only too true, at
Mr. Bridge states, that political In
fluences are sometimes at work, which
tend to Impair the efficiency of His

Farmers' Institute  Recommends   a
Contribution to the Belgians
Who Are Largely a
Farming People
A meeting of the Directors of the
Cranbrook Farmers' Institute was
held In the City Hall recently Mr. W.
Bardgett ln the chair. The secretary
read the financial statement for 1916,
showing a balance in hand of $22.97,
which was adopted.
As no reliable source exists by
which' Intending settlers In this district can secure reliable facts, based
on actual experiences, of its agricultural possibilities, the Secretary was
Instructed to write to the Department
of Agriculture at Victoria aaklng If, In
the event of the Cranbrook Fanners'
Institute getting out a pamphlet giving plain facts about tlte agricultural
possibilities ot this district—backed up
by signed statements trom actual settlers here—.the Department would
print these pamphlets. Such a pamphlet, coming from such a source, could
not fall to prove extremely beneficial
In Inducing more farmers to come Into
the district.
The members of the Institute are recommended ,as a body, to consider the
question of making a contribution to
theli Belgian Relief Fund. At the Belgians are largely a farming people,
and moreover thorough exponents ot
the art of intensive cultivation, it
would seem very fitting that the farmers of this district should contribute
as a body to the relief of their brother
farmers who are undergoing such
fearful distress.
Having decided to ask Mr. A. E.
Watts to co-operate in framing a resolution to be presented by the Delegate
to the Annual Convention ot Farmers'
Institutes, pointing out the -necessity
for an Appeal of a case under the
Railways' Act, and calling anon th*
other Institutes represented at the
Convention to actively co-operate ta
raising the necessary funds, In token
ot their good faith this Institute ha*
appoprfated $20 towards the cost, providing the other Institute! concerned
fall In line.

Bristow of the 16th Battalion Canadian
Scottish, in the shape of the noBc of an
exploded German six Inch shell.   It is
solid metal and    weighs   over   two

After Two Years Useless Treatment
The healing power of Zam-Buk Is
so much greater thun that of other
ointments, that It has cured in many
cases when all other ointments have
failed. One such instance Ib that ot
Mr. Earle E. Oardlner, of MarqulB,
Sask., who writeB: "For two yeara I
suffered with a bad attack of salt-
rheum on my feet. During those two
yenrs I tried every known remedy,
but could find nothing that would
cure the disease. Then 1 heard of
Zam-Buk, and commenced using lt. After the first few applications I noticed
an improvement, and this encouraged
me to continue. Although I had suffered for two years, after only two
months' treatment with Zam-Buk I
■ am completely cured."
Zam-Buk is equally good for eczema,
ulcers, abscesses, blood-poisoning,
piles, cold Bores, chapped hands, chilblains, eruptions, etc. At all drug

Thia week Jim Thistlebeak la in re-
ceipt of a letter from Geo. L. Pedlar,
late editor and financier of the Fernie
Free Press, who gave up everything
and was last heard of at Salonika,
much older city than Elko but not aa
picturesque. It will be interesting to
know, especially to people residing In
the Crows Nest Pasa, that this old
city was viaited by the Apostle Paul,
Cicero, Old Pompei, and now by Oeo.
L. Pedlar, and we are told that Abdul
2nd was locked in a Palace here but

the city, and In the matter or fruit

and olive plantations plastering the
landscape. The snowy top of Olympus
lying south west nf the city would remind you of old Baldy near Elko

were slaughtered by Coal Creek mln-
ers and other Indiana. Much more
could be written but the space Ib wanted for Fake War News.

As Saint Valentine was the children's friend, In fact, spent his whole
life thinking of and doing kind acts
for children, It la fit that they should
always keep him in memory on the

and many cards of their own designing were exchanged. Also they sent

before the plough came around, that lt
