Tlie Masonic Memorial Servii

held iu lhe Presbyterian Chlircl
Sunduy at 4.30  p.m.
Members of the Masonic Ordei
sembled at  the  Masonic Tempi'
regalia and marched from there
Baker Street and Armstrong
to thc Presbyterian Church headed by
llie Knight Templars as au escort.   A
large number of the many friend:*: of
Lieut  Banfield had already assembled
to do honor to his memory.
The service was conducted by the
Pastor, Rev. HIIlls Wright, assisted
by the Rev. Thos. Keyworth and the
Rev. W. H. Bridge and was most impressive.
The sermon was preached by tiie
Rev. W. H. Bridge, Rector of Christ
Church,    He said:
"We have met to do honor to the
memory of a fallen brother- one of
a great host, one who held a place In
our hearts and affections, We cannot but think of him first as a man.
a son, a citizen, somebody's boy—and
for the sake of these things, to uphold
thc honor of these things, a soldier.
He fell in the great battle of Vimy
Rldgo, fighting not for riches or power
but for that whieh all men at tholr
best hold dear, and dearer than lire
itself, Honor."
The speaker proceeded to show tliat
Honor was the keyword of the Allies'
eniiP.e and the foundation of society
itself. He said the best memorial wo
lould offer to one who died in sue*!
a fight was to incorporate the pr'n-
ciple for which he died into all oar
dealings, into the life of home, business nnd country.
That Honor should be the Invtolats
hall-mark of men and nations iu tbe
days to come for thai cause Harry
Banfield had died and ten thousand
others wcre Willing to die
"Pray tied that uot ;, young and
elipible man here but would he willing

Pray Ood no craven heart nnvne

.Not a dull moment prevailed at the
Parish Halll on Tuesday afternoon
when the Women's Institute held- a
Patriotic Hay. Tlie Hull wns taFte-
iully decorated by Mesdames. Hersey,
Fenton and J. Wl Hurton in red. white
ami blue with tlie Canadian flag and
Union Jack in evidence, On lhe President's table, which presented a pretty
spectacle, were threi largo boqu -ts of
carnations in white, pink and scarlet
which had heen provided hy ihe Directorate as tributes of love and svm-
pailif with relatives of soldiers on
active service. The music, hi the cap-
able hands of .Mrs. Arnold WnlUnger,
wa*, of a highly meritorious quality,
."il.iely patriotic und qui'.- li feature
of tlie afternoon. The appearance of
Mr. Worthlngton, in two vocal numbers, was an innovation for the Institute, las far as male talent is oon-
cerned for regular meetings) and
judging by the'hearty applause which
greeted each offering, llie change wns
a welcome one. Being an open afternoon, the ministry of the city had
Ik en invited to take pari .In the proceedings. Tlie Rev. 'I'. Keyworth led
ire via i fn prayers for soldiers and bereaved
\venue j suffering and anxious jrclutives at
homo, Tiiis wns followed by singing '■
in chorus "God save our splendid
men." Immediately afterwards the
Itev. W. II. Bridge addressed ttie
guests of honor, dealing with tlie
patient endurance and noble sacrifice
of women in tills terrible war. He
opined the ordeal of mental ngony
and suspense of women and quiet surrender of their loved ones was greater heroism and Infinitely more sacrificial than the life of the soldier so
nobly given amidst all tlie glory and
glamour  of thp  battlefield.
Tbe presentation of tin* carnations
to the Kiiesls was a very gracoful
III tie ceremony performed by two
llttlo girls, the Ml.sses Pauline und
Joan Bridge and tho touching scene
will long In? remembered hy those who
witnessed it, some fifty members reel Ivlng flowers.
As a continuity of tlie scheme, evident for the day. the tal!. by Mrs. F.
Miles proved very apt. her subject being: "Reconstruction after the war."

It was decided to ask the City Council to set a dny for cleaning up back

This Spring there is evory indication
that Cranbrook has passed through a
very successful winter. Trade has
been pood, and continues good. This
being so thoro is a tendency to overlook tbe present serious state of affairs with respect to tbe food supply
of the world. In Oreat Britain and
in othor countries long lines of people
aro to be soon standing outside of tho
stores awaiting tho opportunity to buy
a small quantity of food. Tho food
question is serious and is bound to
become moro seriouw, oven if the war
ceases at an early date. What aro tlio
people of Cranbrook doing to help'.'
Tbe beautiful public parks of Kngland
are being ploughed up and given over
for allotments. Tlie vacant lots near
tho coast towns are being used for
trowing vegetables. \\V ure strongly
of ibe opinion that everyone in this eity
should prow his or ber supply of vegetables for nexl year. It can be dono
witbont any interference with business, Wo are glad to note that
the Board uf Trade bave taken stops
with a view to netting the City Council interested in tlie movement for cultivating Burdens nnd vacant lots. If
satisfactory results nro to be obtained.
Immediate action must be taken.
