the opportunity of seeing some of the
most severe cases at Cliveden and
Shorncliffe. The shrapnel tears the
flesh most painfully and generally
leaves pieces of clothing and dirt In
tlie wound, so that practically every
case is septic when received at the
hospitals, which means a great deal of
suffering for the men. The lacerations
paused by shrapnel also accounts for
the necessity for quantities ot the
largest size surgical dressings and
wide bandages.
I also saw some who were suffering
from "shock," a very painful sight.

who are seeking to develop British

told that Australia has been taking,

amount. At a recent date the shipments arranged from the Pacilic const

am here today seem's a miracle to

well organised, and as plentiful as
bees. Their artillery is O. K., but
their infantry can't compare with
ours. I've been at It now over four
months; it seems like four years. I
mean out ln France.
Well, Ralph, about the Cranbrook
boys. There are few of us left now.
Those that Joined tlie Highlanders,
Fred Brown and I are about the only
ones left that you know. Frank
Lewis was killed; Bill Templeman ls
a wounded prisoner in Germany;
Knight, the brnkeman, I think is a
prisoner also; George Kay, brakeman,
C. P. R.. Is In England wounded I believe; also R. Hartnell; some of the
j other boys are also killed and wounded. Poor old Fred Edge was shot by
a German sniper early one morning
over two weeks ugo at Festubert; so

this company now. Wc get all the

Cranbrook farmers should organize
a Fruit Growers* Association at once.
This is apparent on every liund these
days. Tiiere are a large number of
farms in this district that are now
producing more fruit than they need
for luiine consumption. Tliis is especially true of gooseberries, straw*
berries, currants, and other small
fruits. No one farmer has enough
'surplus to justify marketing alone, if
they were all combined Into an association and all delivered their surplus fruit at ono central place an outside market could he found tliat would
pay for fruit that is now going to
waste on the bushes. Once such
association Is formed It will encourage
the fanners to grow more fruit with
tho result that before long an abundance would he marketed every year.
Co-operation Is the only way In
which this can he. accomplished. It
is up to tlie farmers to combine and
eliminate tills annual waste which
could easily he turned Into a nlco
source of revenue. No doubt It
would he small ttt the beginning but
everything must make its start and
this Is absolutely the only way in
which to secure results and encourage the industry.
Cranhrook people liave been handed
one more little package by the Conservative government, this time by the
Dominion government. Recently
there was a call for tenders for erecting certain buildings at the St. Eu-
genp Mission, Call for these tenders
wen: duly published In Kernie and
Nelson, hut not in Cranbrook; wliere
the plans and specifications were to be
found. However, four local contractors discovered there was something
doing and promptly made tenders for
this work. Tliis week we learn that
the contract has been awarded to a
Kernie contractor. Local contractors
are sore because tliey figured on tlie
job at hard times prices and cut their
figures to the lowest possible notch
The work will now he done with outside labor, outside materials and Cran
hrook wlll not benefit to any extent.
Just at this time when the labor market In Cranhrook Is at a standstill,
and when carpenters are idle, this
would have been a blessing to many
In the city. A Uttle effort on the part
of tho local Conservative association
could have landed the Job for a local
man, so we are Informed. In fairness to one of the local Conservative executive, It must be said that an
effort was put forth to endeavor to
have tlie contract awarded locally.
The Conservatives have the habit of
holding the sword of Damocles over
people's heads wltli the threat that un
less Conservatives are voted for the

brook is represented both provincial'

expected a statesman of his parts to do

Richard was not quite so convincing. It takes more than a blithe air
and a bonny smile to wrestle wltli;
figures, and Sir Richard is no mathematician, as tho present condition of
Hritish Columbia government finances
pretty well proves. Sir Richard said ■
that In a period of great nervous tension, "ho could not hesitate nbout the

didn't hesitate long enough to query ;
Ottawa—he bought the submarines

more he paid $1,160,000 for them with-
out blinking on the simple assurance
nf an Knglish navy officer, that he
couldn't have them built in England
for less than $(100,000 each. Sir Richard could not afford to hesitate. He
was so anxious to save that approximate difference of $150,000 between
the Seattle price and the Tyneside
price that hc closed at once. It is
true tliat tho Chilian government was
only going to pay $750,000 for the pair
and had refused "to come across" with

mouth. Sir Itichard didn't and never
will. Take It or leave it—thats Sir
Richard's policy and see where British
Columbia is now.
Considering the beautiful window-
dressing he did at Ottawa, it is hard
understand why Sir Richard
should have been so peevish when
ubsequently Interviewed hy the Globe
in Toronto. It couldn't have heen the
ubmarlnes which he had explained to
his own satisfaction—brushing them
aside, so to speak, just like that. It
must hnve been local conditions In
British Columbia which caused hlm to
speak of political opponents as "liars"
and talk of suing if they didn't shut
lip. The change undergone by this debonair and gallant young knight between Ottawa and Toronto can only be
explained hy the fact that Toronto Is
two hundred and fifty miles nearer
home than the other place.
Sir Richard talked like a man who
feels that the rapids are near and the
Inyllgllt is past; like one who wns

The Bargain-Counter Subiuuriue
Ottawa, July 8.—A breezy interlude
last week was Sir Richard McBride's
evidence before the Royal Commission
on War Scandals. It was bounded on
the nortli by Powell, the stool-pigeon,
and on the south by Uarland, the
grafter—Garland is the name, but
garlic is more like the smelt—and It
fitted in neatly.
Everybody agreed that Sir Richard
was in good form. He followed the
usual course of men charged with
breaking any of tlie commandments
and denied everything. He did lt
hnndsomcly, too, talking rapidly to
prevent tlie truth from curdling. His
evidence reminded the hearers of the
old recipe for making chicken soup
without any chicken,—-It was largely
remarkable for what it omitted.
However, it was plain enough that
Sir Richard waB himself again. Although he was not charged with offering his Kingdom of British Columbia
for a horse, lie was volunteering an
explanation of why hc spent $1,150,000
of the people of Canada's money for
two bargain-counter submarines that
wanted to sink when they were supposed to swim and wanted to swim
when they were supposed to sink. According to all reports they were the
devils' own submarines, those two—always wanting to do the wrong thing.
Sir Richard, it will bo remembered,
purchased these submarines on his
own responsibility and then sent the
bill to Ottawa. The bill seems to have
been ns badly behaved an the submarines, for the Ilrst rough draft or lt
was for $1,(120,00, which was subsequently changed on receipt of telegrams, to $1,150,000. Second thoughts
were $100,000 more expensive. Thn
same Ill-luck which pursued the aub-
savago way for n successful young
statesman to talk, especially when ap-
proachtng his home country, und the
province whicli has enjoyed tlie bles-
itlngs of his pronilssory-note-hand-it-
out-to-the-railways government for
(lie lust ten years. One would almost
think that he wasn't sure of his welcome. There may he something in
that, too. Sir Richard is not in the
tlsrt flush of triumph, His flush Is a
bobtail now and Brltlsii Columbia is
calling for a showdown. Consequently Sir Richard had been restless of
late. Like Sir Oeorge Foster who
found no rest for the soles of iiis feet
until he lighted in North Toronto, and
the Honorable Boh Rogers who is
looking for a soft spot in Carlton
County. Sir Richard is casting about
for a new place to porch, Like Noah's
.love, though perhaps more spotted, he
is making Inquiry where he will land
after tlie deluge, Kor tho lust three
•ir four years, Sir Richard has boen as
agile as a moving picture, skipping all
over Canada and the mother country
in search of permanent lodgings. He
is toying just now with the idea of being Agent-General for British Columbia In England. Not a bad Idea at

John Armour Composes Merry Jingle
In Shade of Trees on Irishman
John Armour has revised and ru-
wrltten his promised poem and lt has
been  passed by Censor No. 0036 nnd
t Paper Head Before the Women's Institute by Mrs. J. Burton).
The connection between musical
harmony and the discords of the
battlefield does not appear very obvious, yet In all ages aud all civilization the fighting men of the tribe or
nation have been stirred to valiant
deeds by the beating of the drum or
the fierce shrilling of the pipes or
bugle. At any rate, music of one kind
or another is generally recognized as
thc soldier's tonic, whether at the end
of a long day's tramping, or when the
enemy's position lias to be rushed at
all costs.
The British army Is no exception to
thc rule. Though in these days of
long range fire, when men may be
struck down hy shell fragments or
rifle bullets long before tliey near the
enemy's position, troops do not go Into
action with colors flying and band
blaring out defiance. Martial music
still plays an important part In army
life and the regimental band.ls something more than a mere luxury. A
year or two back a proposal was
brought forward to abolish this time-
honored institution because of the
expense involved to officers who contribute so largely to its maintenance.
Similar suggestions have been made
in Krance, but bo far the change has
not been made. The band Is not an unimportant factor in popularizing the
army and Its social influence Is considerable, while at the same time the
stirring marches dd much to steady
thc battalion when lt marches out and
In from barracks under the admiring
eyes of civilian onlookers.
Our army on the continent found
little opportunity for formal music
on drawing near the enemy, but they
tramped many a weary mile singing
their regimental songs, the favorite
air being "It's a Long, Long, Way to
Tipperary," which by this time must
he almost as well known In France as
In England. Troops that can sing
choruses as they march are in good
heart and ready for anything.
Tlie Royal Military School of Music,
wliere the bandsmen of the army are
trained, was not established until
1S57. Before that time the war office
took no responsibility for the efficiency of regimental bands, which
wero for the most part under the control of private individuals, many of
whom were foreigners, ln the pay of
tlm officers. Kncllel Hall, London,
was built by Sir Godfrey Kneller at
the beginning uf the eighteenth century for his own occupation. It Is a
house of considerable pretensions to
architectural elegance, the hall and
Btalrcase having heen painted by
La Guerre. So many alterations and
enlargements have, however, been carried out to meet the demands for accommodation that the building has
been almost wholly transformed since
Kncller's time. It was purchased by
tlie government in 1847 for use as a
normal training school, and ten years
later lt was transferred to the control of the wnr department.
At first tlie expenses were partly
met by annual contributions of
$50 from each regiment, but eventually the whole cost of maintenance was
borne by the government. The main
object of the school Is to train musicians, most of whom have reached
the rank of band-sergeant, for the responsible position of band master.
Under the control of a director and a
staff of nine professors the men   go
tlle pertarmers and to hear them
playing together, ns Is occasionally
possible, ls a musical treat.
The army is now entirely supplied
with bandmaster's from this school,
about twenty men leaving every year
to join various regiments. As warrant officers they hold a fully recognized position ln the army and the pay
and allowance go to make up a sufficient income to ensure a steady supply
of really good musicians on whom the
complete efficiency of army bands depends, ln addition to these specially
qualified men the school also trains a
certain number of young and promising Instrumentalists from the Duke of
York Bchool and other Institutions
wbo are destined to take tlieir place
in the regular regimental bands. In
addition to tiie full wind cr string
bands maintained by the reglmeuts
there are also the drums und fifes,
pipers, buglers nnd trumpeters. Many
of these, uf course, have to be taught
the various calls und the ceremonial
accompanying tlie solemn salute to
the colors. Kor all this varied work
tho bandmaster ls responsible to the
commanding officer und one way and
another his time is pretty well occupied.
No talk on nrmy music Is complete
without mention of the National Anthem and Its origin, especially In these
days of warfare.
"God Save Ihe Queon"
The origin of our National Anthem,
"God Save the Queen," hns been much
debated, and with unsatisfactory results. We liave, on the one hand, the
positive statement that in 1794 u
gentleman named Townsend was able
to report that, in 1740, Mb father, when
present at a banquet In celebration
of the taking of Portobello by Admiral
Vernon, heard King Carey—the composer of "Sally In our Alley"—sing
"God Save the King," as a song of IiIb
own writing and composition. This
Is supported by the evidence of Dr.
Harrington, the famous physician of
Bath, who affirms that Carey wrote
botli the words and music of our. National Anthem, but that at bis (Dr.
Harrington's) request, the bass was
re-wrltten by J, Christopher Smith,
Handel's amanuensis. On tho other
hand, ln the "Memorials of the Guild
tot Merchant Taylors," the claims of
Ben. Jonson to have written the
words, and Dr. John Bull to have
composed the music, are tersely and
temperately stated; and the tune is
said to have been firBt sung before the
Merchant Taylors when King James I.
and the Prince of Wales dined In their
hall. Into the much-debated question as between Carey and Bull lt
would be unwise to enter here. Suffice is to say that, while it Is now
Impossible to decide the matter wtth
perfect certainty, the balance of testimony is greatly In favor of Carey. In
1745 "God Save the King" became publicly known by being sung at public
entertainments, as a "loyal song or
anthem," during the Scottish Rebellion. James III.—the Pretender—was
proclaimed at Edinburgh on September 16th, nnd the first public hearing
of what has now become our National
Anthem was at Drury Lane twelve
days later. The tune of "God Save
the King," was a favorite with several
of the great composers. Weber Introduced It ln one or two of his works,
and Beethoven, besides writing seven
variations on it for piano, used It in
his Battle Symphony, apropos of which
lie said In one of his letters, "I must
show the English what a blessing they
have In "God Save the King."

On his return from tlie coaet Bruce
Drown found a letter awaiting his arrival from James Milne. James evidently figures Bruce has been a bit of
a hero, although he has not been
within a thousand miles of the smell
of smoke. James Milne always writes
a highly Interesting letter and nearly
always asks of the Cranbrook girls.
It sure looks as If "There's a Olrl In
the Heart of Cranbrook" somewhere.
His letter:
St. Martin's Plain,
Dear Old Pal:
I don't appear to havc uny letters
from you later than April 2nd, and I
rather think 1 answered this one
somo tlmo ago. However, to make
sure, 1 will answer It again.
I was In Loudon last week and got
you tho Iron Cross for bravery because I think a man who con go throe
months without a Silver Spray wins
greater honor than ono who can
poison a regiment with gas, or shoot
an Australian Red Ctobs orderly In
the back after he has doctored his
wounds. It is about time for somo one
to put the lid on, but it Is quite evident wc dont know the game, but wo
havo ono advantage, the longer the
Bulldog lights the harder he fights, so
let us hope that thc spirit ot the Bulldog Breed still lives in this generation, and that there will bo no Bur-
render until we reach Berlin, or till
there is nothing left to surrender.
How are chances to get a few shells
from Cranbrook? It's a shame to
have men out at thc front at tbe morcy
of the foe with nothing to reply with,
but I think that will bc rectified soon
Is business picking up any? Hope
you don't let the town die a natural
death while we are away. I hear
everybody has quite boosting and nre
now waiting for tho end to eome.
Quite a number of my pals of the
old 12th who went to the front have

Tim big Indian celebration ou Tobacco Plains was in full blust when we
were down there last Saturday. The
Palgans, the stonoys and a hand of the
Ehithoud tribe wen* tho guests of the
Kootenays. The encampment was at
Edwards hike and at one o'clock Dominion day British Hags were flying.
Lone Wolf, the champion left handed
Toni-Toni pounder of the tribe played
the opening chorus, after which Chief
Big Bull-Elk announced the proceedings, which commenced with n grand
mounted march, the horses were all
painted in colors, nnd thc mounted
braves excelled in splendor nny masquerade ball we ever attended In the
Crows Nest Pass, and the lovely Indian maidens acting as guard of honor
to the battle axe warriors, looked
lovely in their beautiful costumes.
These charming ladies assuming an
air of Icy reserve (sounds cooling this
hot weather, doesn't it) the regal spectacle presented was one never equalled on Tobacco Plains before. After
the procession they dismounted and
Chief Bull Wnter announced tlie
Rlncktail Dance and called out tlie
opening moves like a backwoods
soprano that would produce grief at a
funeral and reminded several American spectators so much of William
drape-Juice Bryan that they doffed
their hats to him, the couple taking
their plnces, the Tom Toms started up
and the dance is on. The He-Lily
shoots out Ids dirty fluke, grabs the
lovely copper-colored vision of graco
and beauty around the equator of her
beaded klmonn and she places her lily-
white paw on his shoulder, near his
wish bono, the brave then kicks out
with his right pedal and his partner
with the loft. Then they jump 23
times but fail to sklddo; then they
hop three times on ono foot and then
on the other. The danco commences
with n wing bounce and the dancers
never cease wing bouncing until tiie
music stops, whish never does on occasions of this kind until the pigskin
fails to squeal. The Blacktall Is a favorite dance with the Red Men and was
greatly enjoyed by the Palefaces present. We regret not being able to stuy
longer as Miss Mitlle-Mocassin-Strln,*
was to sing with full chorus, "It's a
long, long way to Tipperary" In Si-
wash. Millie Is a very distinguished
member of Tobacco Plains most exclusive society circles and whenever
she Is announced to sing it's always
to standing room onl).    '

Miss Isla Tuck, one of the most r«-
spected of our public school principals, has beeu convicted of an assault
on a scholar and fined $5.00 and cobIs,
with thc option of five days Imprisonment. As the case ts to be appealed, comment on tlie decision must be
deferred. This, however, imposes no
obligation to refrain from condemning
the unjulled blackguard who ln open
court practically threatened physical
violence to Miss Tuck. If such an incident could pass without the strongest reprobation, there would be no
safety for school teachers, or ut any
rate for women, who could hardly be
expected to protect themselves against
such biutes as Allerton. Unless The
Week ls greatly mistaken the school
trustees will feel culled upon to take
drastic measures for the protection of
tholr teachers and the maintenance
of dlsolpllno.—Victoria Week.

In a world so bright and clear;
' And the song bird's sweet notes ring
Seemed to suy my love was near.
i She was sailing o'er the ocean,

I To my love and life's devotion
1    And to leave mc never more.
| For upon a bright June morning
I    She would be my happy bride
; And my heart laughed gaily scorning
I    Thoughts of evil wind or tide.
: Hope, that smiling fair young beauty
i    Walking with us in thc morn,
; May before the sun is resting,
|    Leave us crushed with hearts for
For that day the Lusltanla
Sunk with fifteen hundred souls,
And my Mary now Is sleeping,
Where the peaceful ocean rolls.
Now my heart ls like the desert,
Dried und scorched with grief unsaid
And the pain will leave me only
When the ocean yields Its dead.
Though her murderers are taken
Hanged upon the highest tree
Vet will my heart be forsaken
For my love has gone from me.
Foulest blot upon a nation!
Darker deed we could not see!
Abhored of men, by God forsaken,
May such criminals ever be!
