A most enjoyable .Song Service was
given at tlie Methodist church on Sunduy last. Beginning at 7.00 p.m. Prof.
C. P, Nidd, organist and choirmaster,

from the fact that the scaling capacity
of the church was overtaxed Trom the
commencement and additional chairs
had to be requisitioned till It was impossible to seat any more, tlie aisles
being crowded.

Commission last week the edict went
forth that henceforth and hereafter
the law must bc enforced In this city,
and no matter who the offenders the

be enforced. Chief of Police Hersey is
also License Inspector, and was given
instructions to enforce tlte provisions
of the Liquor Lecense Act. No Immorality will be tolerated in tlie city
and the Ked Light habitues must confine their activities to fields outside

Jurisdiction of the provincial police,

It was also decided to put tlie local

such appliances could Im* used between
('ranbrook and Perry Creek or between St. Mary Country and Marysville, The great advantage of the tractor Is that they do not cut up tlie roads

This Is on account of the great width

Rightly or wrongly ('ranbrook has

though the days of that period liave
been but memories for some time back,
tlie reputation is hard to live dowu,
Afl long as the city authorities tolerate
the segregated district on the outskirts
of the city it cannot be expected tluit
we will liave, or deserve, a high ropu
tation for morality or virtue. It may
ibe argued that this district Is outsith
tlie control of the city authorities, and
to n, certain extent this is true, but
lat Uio same time it ls also true that if

tlmt the Banff-Winder mere highway
is to bo completed witiiout further delay. -Not only is the road to he completed but by the arrangement between the provincial and federal governments n new national park will be
established along a five mile stretch
of territory along tlie road. This land
is ceded to the Dominion Governmenl
by tlio province, aud Is to he maintained us ii game reserve and park
at tho expense of tlie federal authorities. This Will preserve one Of the
finest scenic territories lu tlie world,
and tlie completion of tlie road will
enable thousands of tourists lo travel
by unto along this truly "scenic highway" between Banff and Windermere.
The laml is mostly rough and rocky,
unsuitable for agricultural imrposes
and fit only for a park nr j-ame remove and as tin* provlneo retains the
minora! rinhts the bargain is an excellent one.
At the animal meeting of the Crnii-
bnmk Board of Trade hist February a
strong resolution was passed urging
the provincial government to devise
somo menus of completing this highway nnd suggesting the employment
of interned aliens to do the work. The
solution arrived at is rjultq iu llw
with the resolution.
Tiie dandelion is Increasing with alarming rapidity In tlilw eity, ami a united and systematic erfort should be
undertaken to eliminate the pest,
which It is now becoming. Dandelions
if not removed will soon ruin a lawn,
und it Is rather discouraging for one
householder to work untiringly to keep
bis lawn und garden Ireo while his
next door neighbor continues to raise
a crop sulliclenl to seed Un* entire
block, Tin* eity should also take a
hand and clear tlie "yellow peril" from
off the streets, Tiiere is a block on n
business street close to the centre of
tbo city which is at times one solid
mass of yellow, nnd should be cleaned up at once. Lethbridge is undertaking to fight the dandelion uud n
recent Issue of the Utlibridge Herald
contains the following good advleo:
"The pestiferous dandelion is beginning to show Its yellow head. Swat It.
Do it now. If you don't next year
thero will be one hundred to swat
wliero now there is one.
Tim dandelion may be a nice little
flower, but it is in tlu* wrong place
as a rule, so we call it a weed. Lethbridge has been particularly free from
the pest heretofore, hut the outlook
isn't so bright this year and It behooves every householder, if he is
anxious about ills peace of mind in
years to come, to go at. the extermination of the pest without delay. They
are not hard to kill. A common "spud"
such hh the fnrmers use In tl astern
provinces for killing thistles will do

I'ur u generation, namely, that the

tln-v believe Is Inequitable to them.
They believe Unit tin* Herman army's
roally wonderful successes in the held,
despite, tlie lact that these have not
quite availed to bring a dcclslvo termination to tiie conflict und impose
Oerman will on Europe, will enable
Oerman statesmen to enlist tin* (ierman people iu a new crusade once tho
propitious moment arrives.  .   .   .
"Tlie men who uie lighting the lier-
nians are Just as anxious to net themselves out of tin* trenches ns men can
lie; but they are a little more anxious
to keep tlieir own boys out of these
trenches a few years hence. Therefore they tire willing to go on. Germany has lost a war, but her enemies
have only in part won a war; they
liave blocked, not convinced, Germany,
They are lighting now to establish the
fact that a (ierman attack upon
European civilization can never succeed, uud that the cost of It is beyond all conceivable profit. This, and
not peace terms, is important; this,
and not peace terms, is the thing tliat
prolongs the war and will prolong it
until the Allied purpose is realized or
Allied strength fails.
It is of tlie utmost Importance that
Americans should not permit themselves to be taken hi hy the present
Qerman campaign for peace or by
tlieir own horror of slaughter, if we
are to liave a durable peace after ull
tbis struggle and sacrifice it can only
come when Germany renounces her
determination to upset the balance in

Pence now means a new war at no
distant date, because the Germans
still believe, and they have every reason to believe, tliat what tliey have
almost accomplished Ibis time tliey
will accomplish next time. This spoils
a continuation of armaments, a prolongation of that situation which he-
fore the wnr had become only an
armed truce.
"The peace of the world depends upon the final destruction id' tlie German
idea of world power built oil the ruins
of other nations. Germany seeks
peace now to preserve the idea; she
recoils to leap forward later. The
day will come when then1 will be no
ono In Germany who holds this idea,
because the exhaustion of war will
carry tin* message, even If no hostile

It is Tor this time that those who

Almost evervone will sympathize
with the desire that British Columbia's
soldiers overseas should have au opportunity to vote in the next election,
but apart altogether from the constitutional aspect of the matter, the
proposal does not seem practicable.
Tlie objections lodged against the fed-
oral scheme for taking the votes of
soldiers in Europe and elsewhere cun
be urged with even greater force and
certainly against the provincial proposal. Is there anybody in his senses
who imagines that General Joffre and
Sir Douglas Halg would permit a
British Columbia government emissary
witli a ballot box lo approach the
trenches any time this summer or tall
in the interests of un election in British Columbia while the greatest Issue
In the secular history of the world is
being determined through the sacrifice
of hundreds of thousands of precious
lives? Will General Sarrail allow electioneering to go on among the British
Columbians at Salonica? By that time
Britisli Columbians may be iu East
Africa, Mesopotamia. Albania. Will
the ballot box follow them? Tlie last
thing our gallant soldier!! will want to
think about at such a time in any case
is an election.

The poor workman always blames
liis tools. So says the ancient proverb,
This applies to tlie farmer us to the
mechanic. The grouch er nnd kicker
nre all too prominent in the farming
community. Do you ever henr them
complain of themselves? Nol They
ant thoroughly convinced thnt the
trouble is external, not internal, that
they are the sports of a cruel fnte.
Let us consider this. What ure tlu*
farmer's tools? First and foremost,
himself. Next, his laud. Then, his
equipment. And last hut not least, tlio
Of all these, the one over which lh"
farmer can exercise only a general
control Is the climate. He can determine in tbe first place whether he will
locate iu a wet, dry, moderate or extreme climate. Having decided tills
point ho has no further control, except
such as Irrigation In a dry climate.
By studying "Tlie Temperature nnd
Climate of British Columbia" which be
can get free from the Department of
Marine and Fisheries, Ottawa, lie will
bo able to ascertain for himself the
recorded vagaries of tliat section in
which he decides to settle, and see the
periodical variation whicli almost invariably runs through a shorter or
longer term of years.
Equipment Is n "tool" which every
farmer has to decide on for himself,
depending largely on the depth nf his
pocket-book. But hero the personality
of the mau crops out, for a Judical
selection has much to do with the success or non-HucccHS of his "tool." Kven
», tho Dopartmont of Agriculture is
ways available for free expert advico
as to tlio best and wisest selection
having regard to the nulnre of tho
work, the land, aud the aforesaid depth
of tiie pockutbook.
The land Is a "tool" which is largely
ready to hand, though the variation
Xlsttng throughout a given climatic
belt gives scope to the display of judgment by the farmer—much again depending on the pocket-book. British
Columbia Is, however, fortunately
blessed with large areas of good land
nly needing the pre-emplor*s touch,
o that even with a slim purse there
is always a chance awaiting the man
■ ho will study possibilities. And while
t is the easiest thing in the world to
uipoverlsh the soil, there are iiullmit-
d vistas open to the man who studies
ds soil with a view to improving it.
. recent book o i the furiuiv *iy**Li] ns
f tlte Hast tells how the Chinese
liave so skilfully cultivated their hind
for more than 4,000 years that their
fields are today more fertile than when
ilrst cultivated hy man. Head whnt
the farmers of Denmark liave done to
build up Ihe poorest of soil until today
their crop yields rank amongst the
highest in the world, It takes time—
which is a great drawback to many
Canadian farmers who want to get
rich quick—but the results are sure.
Finally we come to the greatest
"tool" nf all—the farmer himself. It
is obvious from what has already been
said tliat the essence of gooil farming
lies In tiie man, moro so than in any
other factor. Given the right man, and
the nature of the soil, the vagaries of
tlio climate, or tho worries of a slim
pocket-book are as nought. The distinguishing factor which separates
man from the lower animals lies in
Ids ability to rise abovo his environment. He alone is gifted with reason
and judgment. On his ability to use
these godlike gifts rests Ills success-
ill farming ns in otlier occupations.
Tho good workman never blames his
other tools; he studies himself first
to see If tlie trouble is internal. And
ninety-nine times out of a hundred that
Is where hc finds it. Mr. Farmer, the
next time you feel like grouching at
everything stop for a moment; study
yourself, and try to discover if you
have exercised reuson and judgment in
planning your affairs. The poor workman always blames his tools—never
