The work ot lhe "Hed Triangle"

A meeting of the Directors of the
Cranbrook Agricultural Association
was held in the Secretary's office at
tlie City Hall on Thursday hint at
S p.m.
The object of the meeting wns to
discuss various matters in connection
with tbe Fall  Fair.
The Directors hnd decided some
time ago to apply to the Department
of Agriculture for the privilege of
holding this year's Fair at a later
date than usual and the Secretary instructed to request that Wednesday
and Thursday, October 2nd and 3rd
be set aside for tbe East Kootenay
Fall Fair.
The Secretary Informed the Directors that he had received the sanction
of the Department to bold the Fall
l-'alr ou these dates.
East Kootenay 'a Ftill Fair will
therefore bc held this year on Wed-|
nesduy and Thursday, October 2nd

ut SJW *uii. . A anion chair of the j the Federal Government to the rich lire he* of Ihe clly will assist at the tent of the appointment of an expert
service. mining accountant and  metallurgist.
 , -j Already the Federal Government has
| selected Mr. W. A. Wlttaker, of Denver, one of the best known metallurgical experts In his line in America.
The Province will name an expert
to attend the proceedings of the investigating committee, this action
having been decided upon ut the recent session when the advisability of
the appointment of a Royal Com-1
mission was urged by the Opposition.!
The matter was compromised by the
House approving of n suggestion nd-j
vanced by Hon. William Sloan, Minister of Mines; that a man be named
to attend the Investigation, and if, ih
his opinion, the matter warranted It,
that Inter a Royal Commission could
be appointed to go fully into the
whole smelter situation. So far the
Province's representative hns not
been named, but he will probably be
one of the district mining engineers,
appointed upder lust year's Mineral
Survey Act.
Hon. William Sloan is fn receipt of
a telegram from  Mr. Fowler, chairman of the Associated Board of Trade,

situation Is by enlisting a squad or a
company of hens and putting them Into
service In the back yard. Poultry not
only furnishes flesh food, hut, even
better, il produces eggs. A flock of
bens will yield food dividends quicker
than nny other livestock Investment,
nnd also is probably the most practicable for the average person with
limited space, time and experience to
select as a means of increasing the
home food supply,
A spare of 25 or 30 feet square, In
your yard, Is ample to accomodate
twenty or twenty-five hen.',. Roughly
speaking, there should be about 20 or
SO square feet of back-yard space for
each hen kept; so, by measuring the
yard for exercl:lng and feeding
ground j :.re sufficient. The house
should be dry and free from drifts,
but well ventilated, IUI'1 contain a ne.-t
for each four or live hons; u crate,

In, furnishes two excellent nerts.
Get soma good e-isa, a hen to hatch
them nnd raise chirks this year and
buy seme strong young hens. Tho.ie
that scratch vigorously anil sing loudly nre apt to be the best. If possible,
get.all of the same kind; any one of
the following breeds Is a good selection to start with: Plymouth Rock,

In view of the terrible conflict of
.he pact few weeks, the demande on
lie Red Cross Society ere becoming
tacli day more serious. At tho outset
if the prenent fighting, tlie Head Of-
:ire of the Canadian Hed Cross cabled
England not lo permit the wounded
o suffer for lack of anything they
■ould provide.
It was fell that this oable expressed
he sentiments of the Canadian people, and that whatever demands the
Red Cross may have to meet, the men
ind women of Cannda would be ready
o rfce  to thc. emergency.
In view of the seriousness of the
situation a special appeal Is issued to
ited Cronn workers connected with
City or Town Branches of tbe Society
hroughiut Canada, as It ir ft.1I that
m the women of these Branches,
here rests today, a greater respon-
libtllty than at any previous time

■very woman connected with Red
I'rots'work of then Branches i- dtr-

ing months, Canadian country women!
inve little leisure to devote to Red
*ross work, and that In consequence,
he output of Red Cross Supplies is
ess during these months than al any ;
lorlod of the year.
Last week, alone, over 12,000 Brit-
ah casualties were added to the men,
il ready wounded and disabled. Thc j
ted Cross can adequately meet the
■normous demands made upon Its |

ng leisure to do so, are willing to

The enemy has put forth herculean
efforts to crush the British army and

io the fact that every day's delay Increases the difficulties of his task and
his employment of ten divisions on a

How Canada's Greatest Shoe House
Supplies the Nation's Footwear
CONSIDER the amount of time and the infinite care you take when
Buying footwear to suit your own taste in regard to style, size, etc.
Multiply your own individual needs by millions and you will get an idea
of the immense task which confronts the makers of Canada's footwear,
and the size of the organization it is necessary to maintain for that purpose.
The ouying uf a single pair of shoes
is an event that occupies a person but
a few moments two or three times a
year—but to meet the accumulated
demand of a nation's individuals, it
requires the whole resources of a
gigantic industry. Ames Holden
McCready are truly "Shoemakers to
the Nation." It is a title justified by
their size and the importance of their
it may be a revelation to many
Canadians to know that to supply
them with proper footwear, this firm
maintains huge factories each with
many acres of floor space, and hundreds of intricate, almost human, machines—facilities and equipment sufficient to turn out 8,000 pairs nf shoes
every working day.
It requires a small army of workpeople, clerks and warehousemen, in
addition to executives, buyers and
It requires much study and thought
to plan styles and models of Men's,
Women's and Children's shoes in their
various grades and styles.
In order to secure the best results
in the production of various kinds and
grades, it is also necessary to specialize.
For example : Ames Holden
McCready factories are separated into
three distinct factory units, each a
complete factory in itself.
One unit of our factories is devoted
entirely to the manufacture of high
grade footwear for Women and Children, Consider the great variety of
styles in women's footwear, including
high-top boots, oxfords and pumps.
Consider the many different patterns
and lasts, the varieties and shades of
leather and finish—then you will tee
what a great number of models are
required to meet the widely different
needs of Canadian women in the cities
and towns and also in the country
Another factory unit is devoted to
making only the better grades and
styles of Men's Shoes—shoes for professional men, lawyers, doctors, and
all business men, whose occupations
permit the use of fine leathers such
as calf and kid.
The third unit specializes in sturdier types of shoes for heavy wear
and rough usage. Shoes for farmers,
lumbermen, miners, trainmen, and
workpeople who require a heavier
and more solidly-constructed boot.
ln addition to the work of manufacture—the requirements of distribution
are also tremendous. A manufacturer
must not only make his goods economically and well—but he must deliver
them—DISTRIBUTE them. Therefore, in addition to a force of 60 travellers constantly visiting the retail trade
from coast to coast, Ames Holden
McCready maintain, in the centres of
population throughout Canada, immense stocks of boots and shoes
ready for immediate shipment to the
retailers in each section.
These warehouses are located in
the following cities:
St. John     Toronto      Montreal
Winnipeg    Edmonton Vancouver
Years of experience has taught us
the kind and styles of boots which are
required in each locality. No matter
in what part of Canada you reside, no
matter what particular kind of shoe
you require, your retail dealer can
procure it for you without loss of time.
And that is the reason why you will
find, even in the outlying districts,
that dealers selling Ames Holden
McCready goods are up-to-date with
stocks that are fresh and new, and
which reflect the latest shapes and

exhausted, frantic for nourishment, struggled up and pounded upon the door ot thc
"Y" dugout und pleaded for a hot drink. Captain Mackendrlck had to face him with
the news that there was no hot drink for him.
In a volley ot gre?,t oaths the soldier wanted to know t.f what use the Y. M, C. A.
was nt Ihe front If It failed like that. Cant. Mackendrlck explained that they had nn
more because of no funds.
"Do the people at home know of this?" asked the soldier. That was about hl-
last word on earth.
"One of my men." continued the captain, "afterwards found that poor boy lying
on his face only a short distance on—dead. He died of sheer exhaustion A cup of
liot coffee might have saved him."

the last annual report. Amongst the
business transacted nnd still under
way is that of the fences along the
right-of-way of the Kootenay Central
Railway and the kilting of cattle on
the track. .Several cases of Irregular killing of cattle have also received
attention all of which could be more
or less graphically dealt with if your

It is not long since the annual meet-

latlon of sioek Breeders was held
■till the affairs of the Association for
lie past year gone over. The reports
ts rend while gratifying showed thai

he exigencies of the war. The re*
■eipis were shown to be about on a

by the directors during the past year
were the condition of finances along

Owing to floods and for various other
reasons these hnd been a Mowed to
remain down In parts r.nd no special

3tato of repair. An order hy tlw
Hoard of Railway Commissioners ol
'auad:. was issued last year and ll if
imped that this may result In thai
matter receiving more ni ten tlou
I'here was also brought up and acted
upon, the vexed question of com pen
satlon for cattle killed by trains on
tho railway many of the cases being
due to the fault of the fences being in
j poor state of repair*. The report of
the doings showed also that the directors hnd been urgent in asking that the
Indians be forced to have their braods
registered and that they make regular
use of them upon the cattle which
they own.
The election of officers lor the ensuing yoar resulted In the following
being chosen us Directors: Alexander

, Tn the Members:
j In submitting this the Second an-
1 nunl report ot tills Association l"t us
1 first point on I thin its weaknesses may
be laid to the fact of which we ore
proud that is that your Secretory,
Mr. 0. <*. H. Coleman, is away taking
an officer's course In the cause of
King und Empire. In his absence tl
may not he out of place to point out
the work which he has without remuneration undertaken in connection
with our pursuits.   It is largely due
to him thai the Association had its hi -
log  uud   since   its   Inception   he   hns
been   Indefatigable   In   his  efforts  to
make ft a success.   In leaving here he
' made the statement to your directors
i that lie would only be absent for pofl*
I slbly three months.    On  account  of
I Ills absence it Is impossible to put Into
I his report the details und the touches
which his pen would have gulihd Inlo
Before we pass lo other things ll
Is up to us to place on record the loss
which with every other institution In
lhe Windermere District we feel along
with the loss of private persons In tho
death of Mr. (leorge Alexander Starke.
He wns a cordial and willing supporter of Ihe work which we are endenvor-
Ing to carry on.
We imve felt the stringency and the
hardships brought upon the Association hy reason of the exigencies of the
Orent Wnr. Our membership has been
decreased by reason of the call to go
off and serve. On the other hand the
individual members have all profited
by reason of tire Increase In the price
of live stock. 1-et It be borne In on uh,
swiftly and surely, that tbe world Is
facing o world's famine, such ln Its
magnitude as has never been known
or thought of before. It is up to those
of us who cannot go off and fight to
sec that the live stock of the District
is kept up both In numbers and In
quality to relieve tho strain which is
sane to follow. Tiio shortages in
beef, mutton, nnd pork products on
the markets of the world is appalling
and If every community no matter how
small does not strain every nerve to
meet it It will be years before the in
evltablo crash in the fall of product
In built up. In this relationship the
thanks of the Association Is due to
those who have been the means of having registered sires imported Into the
District, notably (he Holsteln-Prex

passed by. There he tolled all alone,
serving hundreds of cups of cocoa
daily, stoking the stove, wnshlng the
mugs, and by his cheery presence aud
kindly word comforting the passing
men. He stayed there through a fur-
aace of shells whizzing around him
in that whole month's battle of St.
ISloi, aud he wus still at his post when
•he battle of Hooge began, witli Its
-itill more devastating shell fire. But
lie was forced to find a new dugout.;
Two or three times pieces of his!
little shelter were torn by flying frag-
ments; this time the most destructive
of ull the German shells, a 5.9, got:
i direct hit. He was hurled In thej
debris bur' lu esciicd. In two day*
another dugout und another stock
were procured, and a new sign graced ;
the side turned away from the Ger-
mans. There he began again to min-:
Ister to tbe many.
One night the Germans blew up the
mine north of Wytschnete. It was
so dark that one could not see u yard
ahead. Ther* was uu unearthly stillness on the from, thnt spelled mischief. About midnight tho explosion
of a mine sent the gun pits quivering,
ln un instant every gun tlie foe had
was going from "Whizz-bangs" to
"Jack-Johnsons." The reply was
staggering, and the Canadians gained
superiority uf fire. The Non-Com-
batant got busy in the dugout." Soon
tlie procession began. Men, wet with
blood, dodged tlie shrapnel to gulp
down a hot. drink. Tho high explosives were searching, like wild beasts
in anger, for the batteries and ttie
ground wus pock-marked until each
shell hole dipped into the oilier. One
shell, dropping not ten feet from the
dugout, churned lhe earth, the next
went chraslring through ihe stool
sheeting. A parly left the battery re
search for the Nou-Combatant. Clambering through the shell hole, they
saw Lhe fruit cans gashed as If by a
hundred chisels; the stock Bcnttored
and destroyed; the mugs broken; Ihe
COCOA urn overthrown; uud when they
hud thrown the debris aside they
found the Non-i'iimhutaul With u dark
red stream oozing from Iiis bond, still
smiling, but sleeping his lii.-l sleep.
The Padre was Belli for. and while
they wailed, a shell hole was prepared

Comhatant was placed in his last dugout. As the Padre prayed, tlie parly
stood staring Into the unknown.
Death faces them so frequently that
they have no fenr of It. Then came
his simple sermon, reiterating their
thoughts: "Death has severed us
from our comrade, but out here face,

vessels by submarines. Persons wore
carried rtwny by the facl that say B7
or more vessels were sunk and valuable goods destroyed. They did not |

He naid that since the commence- I
ment of the war tho British had kept
a continuous stream of transports
making their way between English
and French ports and that up to the
present time over 7,000,000 troops had
'been conveyed across the channel
without the loss of a single transport
and the first Canadian soldier was yet
to be lost ou the high seas.
During lire present offensive it was
reported that the Germans had sacrificed 610.000 men or about SO divisions
and that to date no word had come
of the Allies even touching their reserves. The Allies would not make
targets of their men in this way. The
strain on the Allied troops was in
waiting to get Into action. Those at
home felt the strain of the situation,
sometimes, but a message of hope dls-
polled such feelings. The hoys over j
there were undergoing the strain in'
waiting and hoping for a chance tn j
make the Hun pay more- dearly than
ever before. This would be tho case |
when the Canadians go! Into action j

which thc Hun had so dearly bought.  ,

the place for the Y. M. C, A, was ]
where tlie danger and hardship were

A remark made by a Canadian soldier who was returning to Canada in

Mr, C. E. Mahon, Superintendent ol
national registration for this Province,
was in ('ranbrook Saturday making
arrangements for the registration of
man powi r and woman power in Bast
Kootenay federal electoral district.
II. ti. Lockwood of Golden will acl

Riven ns the Following Information as
to the purposes and methods of carrying out national registration. Further
detail- will bl published from time
to time by posters and advertisement!
In  the press.
H is the desire of the Canada Registration board to effect the registration of the man and woman power of
Canada with us tittle expense to the
country as possible. To this end an
effort is being made to have people
tender their services voluntarily as
Registrars, deputy and assistant registrars. Where it is found Impossible
to secure people with the desired
qualifications on a voluntary basis, or
whdre the expenditure of valuable
time in looking for voluntary workers might jeopardise the success of
the undertaking, in any locality, it is'
permissible to promise workers Lhe |
rates ot remuneration set forth, which1
are as follows:
Deputy  registrars,  $4.00  per  day;
Assistant   deputy    registrars.    $2.50;
Reasonable expenses will be allowed!
on  production of vouchers covering
Items of $2.00 and over,
As tho day for registration will
probably be a Saturday, It is hoped'
that the services and assistance of a
large number of school teachers will
be obtainable. As the duties of the*
deputy registrars will entail careful1
and accurate and legible writing In
the filling out or the registration
cards, school teachers and other clerical professions will be especially valuable for that work.
II Is not the desire of the Board!
thut a person assisting in the work1
"f reglBtiatlon should be put to personal   expense   thereby,   beyond   what'
would be Involved In the giving of
his time. Expense bills will therefore
be recognised from registrars und

as they may have to undertake in Hie

Speaking r.t Regtna en Saturday
last witli regard to Food Conservation
matters, Mr. J, 1). McGregor, Western
Representative of the Canada Food
Board) Stated that an appeal would be!
made to all organis-iilions conducting.
social functions nt which food is serv-!
ed, whether for patriotic purposes or
otherwise, to conform strictly with
the regulations governing hotels and
restaurants, if such an apyonl Is
made we feel confident that it will ]
meet with the entire approval and I
support of everyone who 1ms at[
heart the welfare of our armies over- \
Summer brings with it numberless;
picnics and other out of door entertainments at which refreshments are |
served. The mainstay ai most of:
these '*•*. the ever popular sandwich In J
one fort., or another, although of
course their use is not by any means
restricted to out door functions.
When we consider that one of the!
main objects of the regulations referred to Is the conserving of wheat'
flour bread, it must be admitted that;
the sandwich Is really a most extravagant article of food. There are, however, plenty of substitutes which can
and should be used instead. All that
is required Is thc exercise of a little
thought and Ingenuity on the part of
the refreshment committees.
Thc people of British Columbia
should not wall to be appealed to on
this score. Our various societies and
organizations, patriotic and otherwise,
should take thc lead In the mutter
and announce that all refreshments
served at future entertainments of
any kind will be "War" lunches, dinners nnd suppers. This Province wus
not behind-hand in supplying men for
the fighting forces and wc are
not to lag behind now when ll Is
necessary to make sacrifices (which
after all aro small enough) to supply
the fighting forces for our men and
those of our Allies.
Surely no one who views this matter from lIk standpoint of patriotism
and loyalty to the men who are fighting our battles will consider the Food
Board's regulations ns constituting a
hardship An a matter of fact we
ihoutd lie ready and eager to go them I
oni bettor wherever possible and ol'
our own accord do anything audi
everything within our power to bring,
about the desired result.

■ While I-ahor as a whole has nobly i
, responded to the call to service In,
' the sphere of Industry as well as In
the   fighting   line,   complaints   are j
heard regarding malingering on tho
part of groups of men who because of
'he need in essential industries, have,
been exempted from serving in   the
ranks of thc combatants.
One of the most common forms of
this malingering is, after working on
Sunday.*-, for which double pay is secured, subsequently to refrain from
labor for days nt a time, Two o*
three days appear to be quite common
on the part of the most pronounced
In view of tlie general scarcity of
labor obtaining, this Is a practise
which naturally tends materially t<
curtail production. That this is par- [
tlcularly to be deprecated when such
essential Industries as shipbuilding
mining, and iron und steel are suffer,
ing from the practise there cannot be
the slightest doubt.
In certain Instances the managers
of essential industries have drawn the
attention of the Military Registration
Boards to this malingering on the part
of exempted men. but they have been
Informed that they were not empower
ed to do anything in the premises
But while tiio Registration Boards ap
pcared to have not been able to di;<
cover a remedy. Judge Thompson ot,
tho Appeal Tribunal of British Columbia has been moro fortunate.
Judge Thompson, who is an old
Toronto hoy, being the youngest son
of the late Thomas Thompson, recent
ly held, In a decision which he gave
at Fertile concerning thirty-six conl
miners, "thnt men t» whom exemption Is granted are* in the position of
soldiers, nnd must work ns steadily
and continuously as though they had
donned khnki There must be
no malingering, no holidays other than
specified, no letting up on the produc-
tion of coal, but rather a speeding up,
If It can be shown hy tlie military
authorities at any time that any man
Is not following the rules 1 am os-,
tablishtng, that man must understand
that his exemption ceases, and he
will at once become liable for military
Thnt this decision is founded on
equity and justice there can be no i
doubt, if men drafted into the army
are summarily dealt witli in case of
malingering It follows that those who
aro exempted from military service
because they are needed In essential;
Industries, should not be free to nog-
ect their duties at will.
Cannda, as well as the Empire, is
at the greatest crisis In Its history,
uud It is demanded of every man that
he 'do his bit," in non-combatant as
well as In combatant service, to the
utmost limit of his ability. To malinger is to be unpatriotic.—Toronto

The Best Farm or
Ranch Car
YOU would replace your "general utility" team with a
powerful, sturdy. Ford car at once, we believe, if you but
figured the matter out carefully.
The Ford is especially suited to western conditions and your needs.
It is equal to rough roads, big loads and long distances. These are
the very tests to which you will put your car.
A Ford will run your errands for repairs, grease, mail and countless
other necessities quickly and cheaply. It will save you weeks of time
and money. It will be one of your best investments. It will make
prairie life more enjoyable. You need a car and need it badly. The
Ford is the utility car for the Western Farmer.

Women who feel weak, languid and depressed-

purify the blood, help the organs of digestion,
regulate the liver and bowels, and strengthen

The   following communication  has
been  received by Chief Hersey   nnd
Mr. It. E. Wilson In charge or the
Dominion Department of Agricultural
Association of Stock Breeders for Alberta, was In Cranbrook on April 27,
in response to nn appeal from A. B.
Smith, for assistance to supply a horse
in place of Mr. Worden"s Belgian, the
death of which Is a serious loss to
this district.
Mr. Wilson was met by officers of
ihe locnl Farmers' Institute of Stock
Breeders and Agricultural Association,
nnd after going Into the local needs,
the matter was brought down to an
offer of Ihe choice or three Percheron
Stallions on loan, absolutely free of
charge till April l*it, next year. He
only requested that a club he formed
of at least 15 members at a fee of $1.00
each, who shall elect a president and
secretary with whom the Government
can do business, nnd u manager who
shall take charge of the horse. Membership fees to apply to Velerlnnry's
service If required, nnd the club shull
charge a regular fee out of which the
manager shall be paid for the care of
the horse. It wus felt by all those
present that It would be an easy mutter to secure the required number of
members, and a meeting >.•*<''Called
on April 29th asking as many us could
be got to attend, however, only two
officers of the original members appeared, so no progress was made.
One of these horses can be shipped
ou two days' notice; nil charges paid.
This matter ls ho Important to the
district, that there shoudl be some Interest displayed. We have the mares;
wc can raise the colts, and It we fall
In this matter, we deserve to he overlooked In future. An offer such as
this, Is an advantage that should be
snatched up at once.
