One million, two hundred nnd fifty
thousand children in stricken Belgium
nre dependent upon the relict commission for tin* food that keeps them from
Starving. What they are getting now
is a piece of bread and n bowl of broth
once dally. Medical experts sny they
must have something more in order
to Bave tbem from disease and death.
Tbo needed extra ration is a biscuit
I made with bird or fat end a cup of
I cocoa. One dollar a montii will supply
this extra ration.
These fuels nnd figures are taken
from the Literary Digest, a United
Slates publication, which has started
a campaign to raise tlie extra funds

what tllO DlgOBt Ims to suy to Its BUD-
Bcribora in the United Stntes:
Tbe wealth of the I'nited State* in
220 billions of dollars.   For two and u
half yeara  Belgium,  the  beehive of
Europe, has been rescued from destruction at u cost of over $200.01)0,000
| and tlie United States lias contributed
less than $9,000,000 of tills sum.   The
i commission for relief In  Belgium is
■ composed almost entirely of Ameri-
1 <ans.    It works under the American
flag which protects its workers.   All
. through tin* towns and villages of Bel-
ginm the people in gratitude took lilts
of yarn  and cotton  and  made  small
American flags and wore them proudly wick after week.   Vet while France
and England have been between them
providing $7,000,(100 a month for the
supporl or Belgium, the people of tho
I'nited  States  liave contributed less
Ihan IIMIOO.QOO in more than two years
And In i Ids Bame time provisions for
Jj  the Belgians alone have heen purchased from this country to the amount of
over $100.0011.000."
That is a very severe indictment of
the peoplo of the neighboring republic
and it should result in large subscriptions to the Belgian relief fund, which
is in din* need of more money to save

"And finally notice the sentence
where he pleads that his name be not

Cook referred to this as a sort of
snake-in-the-grass act, but that all too
mildly describes the incident. The
snake invariably gives some warning
before it strikes, whereas the letter
writer nnderhaudedly applies a weapon and immediately requests that
gentlomen knowing the facts become
partners to his Infamy possibly by preserving a guilty silence."

The telephone rang. You interrupted your work to answer. You courteously stated that the party wanted
wns not in. Your answer for your
courtesy and tlio Interruption of your
work was not even a grunt. It was
the click of tlie otlier party's receiver.
He didn't havo to be courteous. Ile
was anonymous. Having the heart of
a boor ho was never courteous for
courtesy's sake but merely for the
sake of being tolerated hy society.
Or perhaps lie believed he was talking
to a subordinate personage on whose

favors personal or commercial. Possibly he was just too busy to be descent. Anyhow, it didn't make any difference. Under tlie cloak of anonymity he could be tbo cur that he always secretly wanted to be and nobody

In agree to peace, the other is by defeating tlie Hritish navy and Opening

We support tlie second theory, (iermany wlll use her navy as a forlorn
hope simply because it is the onlv
weapon wltli which she can gamble on
a counter-stroke against her greatest
danger. If her economic condition is
as bad ns ft is believed to be, the logic
of the situation leads to a decisive sea
fight. This probably will not be until
after the failure of her next big land
effort unless she sees a favorable opportunity for a surprise attack, because the destruction of her fleet
would extend the scope of the llrltlsh
blockade to the Baltic, besides opening the way for au attack upon her
bases and tin* Invasion of German territory under cover of naval operations,
Moreover, the Oerman navy fn any
case would be one of the spoils of victory if ii were intact at the end of the

There is another line of speculation

submarine campaign might Influence
an attempt to attack him at his liases
in the hope of destroying the lairs of

Jack Hamilton, a woll known prospector around here, believes he has
solved tbo problem of how to help tbe
prospector. In conversation wltll the
Herald he deplored the wasting of so
much money on trails and roads to
properties which had not been proved.
His idea is for the government to send
an engineer with a diamond drill to a
prospect, and by drilling to prove its
worth before sinking money on a (rail
to tho property. Mr, Hamilton thinks
bis solution of thc difficulty would
prove a boon to the prospector as woll
as saving money to the Governmonl
and at the some time developing any
worth-while proposition.

lt ls capable of penetrating to the
seat of the trouble, which In the
case of skin diseases and old sores
is found in tlte diseased underlying

Zam-Buk contains no animal fat or
coarse mineral drugs whatever, but
!    is entirely of herbal origin.   Ordttt-
1 ary ointments, on tho contrary,
owing to the animal fat and mineral

any, can be only temporary.
in addition to this, Zam-Buk is
a si rung germicide, and having

During the past week all comers
to the office of the Otis Staples Lumber Co.. bave been asked to sign a
petition requesting lbr Provincial
Government to build the Kootenay
section of the Auto Transcontinental
Highway up the St. Marys River valley. About forty signatures were secured.
Last Thursday morning a breakdown in the engine that drives the
planing mill necessitated a temporary
cessation of work in that particular
branch of thc plant. Many of the
men quickly took advantage of this
occurence to take a much appreciated
holiday in Cranbrook. However, all
was in repair and work resumed again
Monday morning.
The weather has been very mild here
of late. Light warm winds have been
frequent. Saturday and Sunday witnessed the arrival of a light fall of
snow which was urgently needed as
the previous fall was much worn away
in places.
