The rendering of Haydn's "The
Heavens Are Telling," was a beautiful
number and was well received. Tho
trio handling tlie important part ol
this number were Mrs. W. A. Nisbet.
Mr. Geo .Hougham and Mr. J. Venus.
This number made a great impression .the voices blending perfectly.
There was nothing lacking on the
aesthetic side, their execution of "The
Heavens Are Telling" being sung in a
manner beyond criticism.
The opening chorus "The Gloria"
from Mozart's Twelfth Mass, was
rendered with a vim and force whicli
showed that the members of the
Choral Society had the number well
in hand. A quartette composed of
Mrs. E. Paterson, Mrs. (Dr). J, H.
King, Mr. George Houghnm mid Mr.
J. Elliott did most effective work.
Mr. Percy Parker's cello solo.
Flour D'Antoinne, by Paplni, showed

solemnity and grandeur of this Instrument gave up everything grand in
his artistic rendition. Mr. Parker's
playing was as touching, as pathetic,
ns grand us if handled by one of the
old masters. The pity is he did not
respond with an encore,
Tho orchestral numbers were exceptionally well rendered. The march
"Hakoczy," a most spirited rendition,
was given witli a martial atmosphere.

Sureeed In Life and Lhe Happy
One takes up the daily papers these
days and ls greatly surprised If a
notice something like this does not
meet their eye. "John is seeking a divorce from his wife. The
couple are not getting along well together." A number of reasons can be
assigned for this rash act of John's
but it can generally be traced to one
thing, and that is, bum cooking. John
may >V a business man or a wage-
earner and is satisfied with life all
round, even Ln panicky and somewhat
tough times, but he can live that
down, he can live a good many tilings
down, but when it comes to poor cooking, this gets his goat -every time and
he rebella.
"Why do husbands desert wives?"

of public welfare, which has just finished an investigation. According to

a relatively small chance of being deserted:
If they are big physically.
If thi-y arc- good cooks.
If they are sweet-tempered, helpful,
Interested, affectionate and loyal.
If they liave children; or

Are not anxious for children and are

While our language muy be u trifle
strong there seems to bc no denying
the fact that there is something rotten in the state of Denmark in tin*
present military situation as tt affects Kootenay.
Since hostilities commenced this
part of British Columbia has provided .at least a thousand recruits for
the overseas forces. To expedite matters the 107th Kast Kootenay regiment was organized, drill halls rented
In order to train those desiring to go
on active service, as well us those volunteering for home defense. Ollicers
have purchased uniforms, and given
freely of- their time and substance
to foster the military spirit, and in
return for all tills laudable activity
not a solitary tangible token of appreciation has been forthcoming to
date—not even uniforms or the rent
for armories.
In the selection of mobilization
centres all the good tilings have been
showered on const centres. In the
matter of utilizing a Kootenay citizen
soldiery for tho protection of life nnd
property in the Kootenay not a soldier litis baton' asked for and not a
guard lias been posted although most
every trestle und bridge, particularly
along the main line, is amply patrolled and guarded. At Grand Forks
It lias been deemed expedient to keep
on active service a volunteer company
of 60 or 70 men in command of local
officers (and a payioll of $2,000 a
month), but In glorious Kootenay.
where we have n big foreign element,
and a stretch of railway line and
other properties wliere alien enemies
could create considerable havoc to
life and limb, we must perforce trust
In tho Lord and keep our powder dry.
Some weeks ago we had the announcement that a Kootenny regiment |

(By Western Forestry and Conservation Association)
It was just before the boy saw the
squirrel that he met the wagon-load of
hunters. They looked to him like
town people.
ln the first place they were very
noisy, and the boy knew that real
hunters have a habit of being as quiet
as possible so as not to frighten the
game. And they wero smoking—one
lit a cigarette and threw down the
match just as they passed hlm. The
boy knew that real hunters do not
smoke In the woods. But before he
tiad time to think much about them,
the squirrel Jumped out from almost
under his feet nnd ran chattering up
the hill to a log into which he disappeared like a flash.
Now, a squirrel with the whole
woods to run away In Is ono thing. The
boy had plenty of experience with such
squirrels. But a squirrel In a hollow
log, bound to come out again pretty
soon through sheer curiosity, Is quite
another thing. The proper plan In this
case Is to watch the hole cloBely and
you are not likely to be disappointed.
So the boy followed up tbe hill as fast
as he could go. Vou may be sure he
quite forgot the hunters.
Breathless from his climb to the log
where the squirrel had scolded him
and disappeared, he sat down to rest.
A few yards below, the road wound
through the shady river-bottom. Above
hlm stretched a steep mountain slope,
brushy and flecked with spots of sunshine that filtered between the tree-
trunks. A little farther and he would
have passed from oue sort of forest
Into n very different sort, but here the
mountain trees and tho valley trees
met and grew side by side, a dozen
kinds at least.
It was a hot August aftcrnon. The
valley was filled with haze, so the boy
could scarcely see the hills on the
other side. A warm wind rustled in
all the trees. It was very evident that
they were whispering to one another,
and as thc boy carelessly closed bis
eyes, for the soft summer air and the
murmur of the woods made him lazy
and sleepy, he soon found himself listening.
"What do you thing about It?" the
hemlock was saying to a tamarack.
"This hot weather always makes me
nervous and perhaps I worry needlessly. I never do feel at home on
tliis dry slope unless lt ls actually
"I should think you would," replied
the tamarack crossly, ' 'with your
ridiculous thin bark and your foolish
habit of growing with your roots on
top of the ground. You ought to live
in a swamp tbat won't burn, or else
with your mountain cousins so high
up that the snow lies late and there
isn't so much underbrush. That's
where hemlocks belong. A forest fire
would bc no joke for you, I can tell
you. I wish you wouldn't ask such
inestlons, though. I don't like lt quite
so dry myself, and one never can tell
when the east wind may begin to
"It's beginning now," put In the
yew tree, who belonged to a gloomy
family and always liked to repeat bad
news. "I heard from a friend that all
the trees on top of the ridge are talking about tt. I'm sure it wlll be a very
dangerous wind."
"All hot weather is dangerous and
all dry winds are dangerous," pronounced an old pine tree solemnly, ln
a deep tone which may have been because his longer needles sounded a
stronger note than did his short-leaved neighbors but to the boy seemed
to rebuke their quarreling over a serious subject. "If you had looked .out
over this valley as long as I have, you
would know that terrible things have
happened when fire has been started
at times like this by lightning, or, perhaps, by an Indian burning out a
wasp's nest."
Just then the squirrel put his eye to
tlie hole and observed the boy closely.

thero Is a report that New Westminster will bc selected.
In the matter of choosing officers
for the contingents nlrendy gone
abroad the men of Kootenay have
not been given a square deal, and ln
the aclectlon of a head for the all-Koo-
tenay corps it Is amazing, to state It
mildly, tliat no selection was made of
a Kootenay man. Certainly we have
ample competent and deserving officers in the district.

shabby treatment thc authorities hnve

line beyond. "Wc old people are the
wisest. But you, too, aro likely to
overlook one thing. Coming of such a
large and widespread family, which 1b
most honorable and haB my sincere
respect, you are too apt to live largely
in the past and forgot the changes
which man has mado In our affairs.
Excepting somo of your cousins ln regions still tar from railroads and too
dry tor much settlement, most of ub
forest folk have learned that civilization has brought far greater danger
from forest llros than lightning or Indians ever were. Bad as it used to be,
it is a thousand times worse now. All
day I have been watching the distant
settlers' clearings, the logging camps
and the railroad up the valley, expecting every minute to see a cloud of
smoke show the carelessness of man
and our own peril."
"I am not tall enough to look out," j
cried a little vine maple excitedly, "but'
I can see the trail below us and sev-!
eral times today I've noticed hunters!
and campers going by. Some were
smoking, and one looked like just tho
kind of a man who would leave his
iv.iiipllre without putting it out. Why
will men do such things when tt is
from us that all their pleasure comes?
The forest shelters their game and
feeds their fishing streams."
"We do not know ,my child," answered the old fir tree, gently. "One
would really think they would know
better, they are bo much wiser than
we fn many ways. The queerest thing
about it is that they can hardly live
without us. Their houses are built of
wood; they use wood almost every
mnluto of the day. The brushes and
buttons that begin their days; their
chairs and tablea; the flre tbat cooks
and warms for them and the matches
which light It—all come from us. So
do the papers they read, printed on
wood-pulp, and the food they eat,
crated In wooden boxes, hauled in
wooden cars over wooden railway ties,
stored in wooden boxes, grown in
wooden-fenced fields. And we mean
even more than this to all who live
near us, tor lt ls the work of making
tlie forest Into these useful articles
Unit supports forest communities.
Here In the northwest it is their greatest business, employing more than
half their workers. It brings them
millions of dollars a month, reaching
every home In the whole province. The
forest even pays a large part ot their
taxes and we all know that It furnishes most of the money tor the schools
to which they send their children.
Still, Uiey start most of the forest
fires.   It is very puzzling."
No one paid any attention to the
squirrel, who, with one eye on the
boy, slipped out of the hole and retraced his steps down the hill.
"Perhaps they don't realize these
tilings," said the pine, his mind on the
truths the fir had told. "I didn't myself until I heard you make it so clear
Just now. Probably men are like trees
in more ways than we think. They;
Judge too much by the past and over-1
look tho new dangers that come from
filling the woods with careless people i
who all use lire in some way."
"Well, even at that they are very'
stupid," put ln an old cedar who had
said nothing so far. "They ought to
see that flre has always been the curse
of this country. Hasn't our whole life
fur thousands .of years been spent in
struggling against lt? Is thero a forest
In the whole Pacific Northwest, except
in some swamp, that doesn't show In
charred logs and stumps that it has
followed a flro? This is a flre country;
that's what it Ib. My family has always known It and that Is why we
have lcarnod to grow in wot ground
and in tho deepest shade where weather like this doesn't dry everything up.
1 was foolish ever to come up and live
with you."
"That't true enough," said tho hemlock. "My people learned It long ago.
The tamarack laughed at me Just now
because we have thin bark and do not
strike our roots deep down where flre
cannot scorch them. We have spent
ages learning how to live this way ln
low damp ground and In high snowy
regions, just because If we didn't we
should all be killed by flre."
"It ia a very timid way," retorted
the tamarack. "We have more courage. Why do you suppose every tamarack spends much of its life growing
thick bark near the ground, so Its
base ls often swelled out of all proportion to the rest of the trunk? To
resist flre ,of course. So you see ub
bravely living on the driest alopcs.
And If some of us do fall before a very
hot flre, some big old tamarack Is always saved by his bark armor. His
millions of light wind-blown seeds
start a new forest on the same ground
once more. We are not afraid. We
have fought flre these million yearB
and tlio lesson we have learned Is to
liave thick bark."
"You boast too much," said the red
flr. "Do you suppose your family has
all the wisdom in tlu world?   A* *
matter of fact, you have spent bo many
thousand years learning to light flre
In places where lightning Is common
that you do not seem to know how to
live anywhere else. Now, my people
have been studying this problem as
long as anybody. When trees and
plants flrst began to grow in this country near the great Pacific, we saw
that the heavy rains ana unows ot
winter, followed by such wafm, pleasant Bummers, would make our forests
and undergrowth the thickest and
strongest In tbe northern world. This
meant that when tliey did get dry
enough to burn, the flre would often
a fierce one. No matter how wc
tried to protect ourselves, great areas
would be Bwept clean. We just had to
expect bad Ores. So, after trying a
hundred plans, we loarned that the
way to hold our own waB to seed
these big burns up quickly. Like
most of you, we developed light winged seeds that carry far across them,
but we don't even try to grow anywhere else. We havo trained ourselves so we simply havo strong light
and clean burned-off soil to start In.
That Is all we do ask, so you see us
Just then the squirrel came back up
the hill, looking groatly worried. Ho
regarded the boy thoughtfully, as if
anxious to call his attention to something.
"Do you mean to say." the yew was
asking, "that every red flr forest has
come In after flre? Why, tliat would
mean that fire has been almost everywhere. It could just as easily come
"Exactly!" replied the flr tree. "Except where we send a few stragglers
Into light open forests ln dry regions,
where we don't really count, wo have
always followed flre. In every real red
flr forest you can And charred wood
somewhere. Nobody ever saw a healthy red flr Beedllng growing ln the
shade of an established forest. We
can't do anything, so we leave that to
our friends who can stand shade, like
the hemlocks, the cedars and our
cousins, the white firs."
"He is right," remarked the white
pine. "My people follow the same
plan. We are more particular, for wc
have soft white wood and need more
moisture, but we found thousands of
years ago that the only way to hold
our own was to grow up in burns.
Where you find us, flre has been. It
may come again."
"Just listen to us a minute," put ln
the maple and the Cottonwood. "We
belong to the broad-leaved race of
trees that has so many memhers in
eastern America and bo few out here.
Did you ever wonder why? It is
simply because they cannot spread
fast enough after flre to live in tho
Northwest. The oaks, hickories, walnuts and such trees have nuts or
heavy seeds that will not blow across
the burned spaces. We alono, the winged-seeded maples and the cotton-
woods and aspens,whoso seeds are
floated by bits ot floss, are able to
hold our own In a flro country. And
wliere our heavy-seeded kinsmen cannot live, let man and tree beware of

proudly. "Especially ln tlle far
NortL where most of you could not
struggle with the wind and bitter cold
when you are little, and In the dry Interior mountains where summer sun
would scorch you, we send our tiny
drifting seeds to start thickets under
which you And shelter later. And so
the shade may not be too great, we
have delicate little leaves which flutter
and tremble in the breeze all day
long because their leaf-stems are flat,
not round like yours. There Is a
pretty story told European children
that aspen leaves have trembled this
way ever since Jesus was crucified,
when they were frightened because the
earth was shaken and the sky grew
dark. Anyway, It works out as part of
the plan by which we all rcclothe the
Although the trees did not notice it,
for like a good many people they were
too busy with more Important matters to see what was going on under
their feet, by this time all the shrubs
and bushes were watching the squirrel. He had run down the hill and
back once more and seemed very much
excited. Two or three times ho kicked little bits ot bark toward the boy
who lay under the spell of the murmuring trees. It was clear that lie
wanted to rouse the boy for some purpose, but without being soon himself.
Por what boy who was watching tor
a squirrel could be relied on to do
anything but chase the squirrel If ho
should see It?
All this while a small, unpleasant-
looking tree, who seemed to have no
friends In the little group, had listened
to the others wltll a disagreeable
sneer. It was tho lodgepole pine, and
when he now began to speak they
rustled angrily.
"How very interesting!" he said.
"But It all only proves what a lot of
cowards you are. Whistle to keep up
your courage If you like, but 1 and my
friend, the flre, will have our way at
last. In all these millions years, while
you have been learning these pretty
tricks, my family haB had an agreement with your enemy. Did you ever
notice that In those very places where
the tamarack and yellow pine feel bo
much at home, It Is the humble lodge-
pole pine that follows flre more than
half the time? Well, we, too, learned
long ago that flre ls sure In the Pacific Northwest and planned not to light
it but to make It help light you. So,
through ages we have learned to benr
hard woody cones, many of which cannot open and spread their seed until

"He is a traitor," said the codnr, after the angry murmur which followed
the lodgepole pine's defiant speech had
lied down a little, "but his theachery
only proves the {.eiiit you n'.i have
made—that flre l&nely ruici us and
always has. The forests of tho west
are what they arc \\M because lire has
selected them and governel their
I habits, exactly as a gardener among
] men today chooses plants and makes
I them serve his purpose. For while so
) many of you have been learning to

shade of old forests. Where flre dues
not accidentally come to Blftka the
right seed-bed for you, we nre there
ready to keep thc laud clothed villi
green. Between us we make Hie wonderful forests of the west."
"If men could only see this," added
the flr tree, "they would see how cloifl
a balance we have all worked .nt, .villi
flre almost too strong for ns at host.
Just a little more danger than Hint
from 11 glitntug and Indians which w
have so patiently planned to moot—
then our whole defense breaks down.
Wo never expected this extra risk.
Surely they need not burn slashings
at times like this, or throw Bparka out
of their engines, or leave campflres
burning, or toss away burning matches
and tobacco. Tbey .should have good
flre laws and plenty of flre wardens
and rangers. Above all, they should
tench these lessons to thc children
who are growing up to go' into tV
forests either to help- us or destroy
"That Ib the worst of tt," sighed thc
pine. "Tliey forget the children. While
we have spent all these ages learning
to give our children the best chance
against tho fire, they do not look to
the future ht all. Their children will
need us. It will be a snd land when
there are no shady woods to wander
In, when the springs and streams run
dry, when thero are no forests to furnish, work and no lumber for homes.
Nor will It be enough to save us old
trees for such use. Thoy do think of
us sometimes, but our life is nearly
spent. Why is It not just as Important to save the brave young forests,
trying everywhere that flre or logging
has left an opening to do their duty
and replace us when we are gone?"
Just then thc squirrel gathered up
his courage and dashed up to a point
above the boy's very head, where he
gave a shrill chatter of alarm and
scuttled out of sight up the rough
bark of the old fir tree. The boy jump-*
ed up but could see nothing except the
swaying, rustling trees and the reddened sun falling low above the
smoky valley. It was time to hurry
home. With the secrets of tho trees
running through his head, he climbed
down to the road.
There, where the hunter had thrown
down the match, a rotten log was
smouldering just ready for the cast
wind to fan the flre Into blase and
send It rushing up the hillside. The
boy kicked it Into thc road and scraped
dirt over thc coals. Ho took thc road
homeward. In a few yards, where it
crossed tho crook, he found a camp-
fire left by cureless travelers, eating
toward a nest of fallen logs and brush.
With his hat be carried water until It
was entirely out. Soon he wns homo
aud ready for supper.
Hut what the boy had done an alder
tree told to a spruce, who told It to a
cousin of the eednr, and so It reached
tho trees on the hillside.
"1 did It," boasted tho squirrel to his
family. "I brought tho boy up horo. I
found tho danger when the stupid
trees wero cither looking across the
valley or telling stories. I sent blm
down the hill."
"There Is plenty of tlmo yet for
another flre," remarked the gloomy
yew. "Men nre still careless and the
oast wind Is not dead."
