These days coinciding generally wltli
days appointed by the protestanl bodies throughout the Empire were to bo
kept for the general mobilising ofour
:spiritual forces. A great Empire wide
effort ut this solemn time should commend itself to all citizens. Certainly
loynl Christians would not fall to respond to tlie call in the name of their
beloved Empire and Us sacred cause.
A united service of Intercession and
Thanksgiving will be held on Sunday,
January 2nd, at 4 p, m., In one of the
1 public halls (to be announced later).
It Is hoped tbat all loyal Christian
, citizens, realizing the extreme urgency or the Empire's needs,  will  use
i this occasion as their Christian conscience demands. This ls an unl'iuc op-
; portunlty for the citizens of Cranbrook
| to meet on a common platform and
demonstrate their unity in the cause
of Righteousness, Truth and Honor.

The proceedings terminated with the j
singing of the National Anthem.
As soon qh the National Anthem was I
ended the place beenmo far busier j
than a large city dept. storo on a •
bargain day in Christmas week. Money
changed hands very rapidly, a sum of
$500 being taken before the door clou- j
od for the day by the secretary and
cashier, Mrs. Haslam. The tearooms
were well patronized both afternoon
nnd evening..
A decorating committee conpiatfng
of Mesdames D. Burton and G. It. Stevenson, assisted by Messrs. Ormston,
Noalo and A. II. Webb, had tastefully

Just Inside the door was tbe Belgian stall. Tho ladles here wore dross-

Opposite those was the fancy work

flag and served by Indies In. Russian
nnd Italian costumes. The cooking
stall (Canada) between the main entrance and the tea room had no cloth
hangings but was draped In whlto
paper with real maple leaves pinned
all over these draperies.   The effect
was very pleasing as was that of the
ladies In Canadian cook's dress. A
wrapping stall was ln operation at one
end of this booth. A girl's stall In
Christmas colors and filled with articles made by girls; a candy stall,
white elephant stall, fish pond, bran
