Dear Mrs. Barney:—
Many thanks to the ladies of the
Knox Church and yourself for the
splendid parcel T have just received,
ulso your kind wishes. I and the
boys with me wbo shared tho good
things appreciate your kindness very
much. I may say that our old Rat- i
tallon wus broken up some time ago!
und I am now in "A" Co, 123rd Canadian Pioneer Battalion. There were;
very few of the boys who came from
Cranbrook with me left In the old ;
battalion when it was broken up. j
in fact there are only two: H. Killins
and H. Chapman with me now and
about half a dozen others nre scattered amongst different units. Martin Harris and 0, Fiedler are in England going in for commissions. Now,
I nm very glad to say I am In the
best of health and spirils. It is
nearly sixteen months since we arrived iu this country nnd I have been
through Ypres, The Somme and Vimy
Ridge unharmed, so 1 am hoping my
good luck will continue and that it
won't be very long until we see ourselves back in Cranbrook again. All
my best  wishes and rognrds io the

ido, a flower by the way-
conversation, of how u
certain potent ami awful lumberjack
named Woods, late of Wardner, was
with him In a Hun trench when along
came a bunch of Frltzes shouting
"good Canadian, kamerade Canadians!" i'p came the lumberjack on
the run. bayonet at the charge, and
having requested I lie Huns to say
their prayers on the double quick, he
made most excellent good Huns of
six of them.
Charlie speaks in most glowing
terms of his experiences. Says he
would sacrifice ten years of his life
to have it all to do over again. Ile
never speaks of what ho did himself
but tells in plenty of what his comrades put over, The better man he
therefore. He speaks in tho highest
terms or the gooil effected by the V,
M. C. A. at tho front. This organization has left its mark on contemporary history. It has. through this war
carved a niche for itself In the world's
institutions from which nothing can
displace it. Liko all the rest of our1
hoys wiio have happily come hack to
us, he seems to feol that it Is some
thing to havo done a man's share
of this great sl niggle for human freedom, and  tiiose whom he meets try.
logs and ties have been destroyed a:
well as some valuable standing timber About 200 men are endeavoring
to keep this flre out of the main Bull
River Valley and the probabilities nre
lhat Ihey will BUCCOCd.
Another serious flre Is at Bugaboo
Creek one of the big feed creeks of the
Columbia River. This fire covers
ahout S miles front and is confined
I principally to cut over land with heavy
slashings although .-.,000.000 feet of
saw tlmbor lias already boen destroy-; f
ed. It is expected that this flre will I J
be under control this week. i •?
Another  bad  flro rages  60  miles j
North of Canal Flats up the Kootenny j  ■
Valley and travelling north.   .No ser-   C
ions damage has occured so far, al-
though the fire spreads over several
square miles.    Tlie country is open
ami il is expected lo be under control
within a few days.
The Corbln fire is now under control and practically all danger to the
town of Corbln has been passed.
Several hud fires are raging In lhe
Flathead Valley, to fight which a
gang of men hnve been despatched
from Corbln.
All other fires are under control..

n medium of social advancement and j
Intellectual   nnd   musical   recreation j
and culture,   It partakes in no way of

understood from the fact that William
J.   Bryan,  formerly  State  Secretary
at Washington, D. C„ and numbers of
men most eminent In every branch
of science, are amongst the regular
lecturers for Chautauqua.
I^ast winter an opportunity was afforded the Cranbrook people to secure
a six day's festival, ana some thirty
of the citizens became guarantors of
the success of tlie visit. What they
succeeded in securing bas proved entirely beyond their expectations as
will appear from perusal nf the six
day's program which starts on Monday. 13th August and terminates on
Saturday night following. Tt is a
veritable aggregation of first class
attractions embracing the famous
Treble Cleff lady quartette: Ada L.
Ward, the noted wnr lecturer: Dr. A.
D, Carpenter, the eminent popular Iee. j
turer on astronomy. It is said that j
ho more than fills the place left va- \

great Dr. Ball, the first man who j

for ordinary men to realize at close

of Canada's favorite baritone. H.

There is no need to regard the recent disaffection In the Russian Army
with serious apprehension, it would
Indeed be surprising If ouch occasional outbursts did not occur. The simple Russian peasant has to pass thro'
a process of instruction on democracy,
he has to be taught that the gulf between democracy and anarchy is far
(•renter than between democracy and
monarchy, that the recognition of
authority, obedience to the laws of
the land and discipline are the fundamental tenets ot' a democracy, that auy
departure from these principles means
anarchy. There Is Indication that the
Russian (lovernment has control of
the situation and will handle eaeh
spasmodic outburst firmly and avoid
the ilanr-er of ii conflagration. The
appointment of Kerensky who Is regarded as the most powerful man iu
Russia today, as commander-in-chief
of the Tliissinn Armies is likely to
iiueneh  the incipient  blazes.

(Toronto Daily News)
Sir Wilfred Laurier seized the
"Dloody Key" of office mid gol lion.

lock. This is In brief what occurred
in the Mouse of Commons hist night.
As Dr. Michael Clark, ablest of Western Liberals has said, Sir Wilfred
Laurier is governed Iiy petty personal
ambition at a time when the safety of
Canada, the Empire and civilization
is at   stake.
To employ another phrase used bj
the member from Red Deer, the Graham motion was "nearer trickery than
statesmanship." It was a crafty effort nf calculating politician:- to utilize the most dreadful of world crises
for their selfish ndvantnge. While the
bard-pressed Canadians al the fronl
call insistently for reinforcements,
tbe venerable Opposition leader talks
of constitutional technicalities and
Mr. Graham complains that tlie Government is placing too groat ■• proportion of the war debt on posterity.
In his recklQBs bid for power Sli
Wilfred Laurier flouts Ontario and
the West, us he has flouted them before. He relies on the French-Canadian vote, the German and Austrian
vote, the slacker and pacifist vote-
in fact on being able to round up all
the unpatriotic elements In the country and consolidate them behind him
without regard to the national eonse.

diei of history.
Contrast his action with the steadfast and patriotic conduct of the Prime
Minister. Iu the wont' of Dr. Michael
Clark: "So far as his determination

one sincere purpose is concerned

He's the Man in the Front Ranks of Every
Worth-while Movement
The Chautauqua  committeeman |
is thc man of your town who has j
been working over-time for Chau
tauqua and still hc has a business
of hts own to look after.
He is responsible for the Chautauqua coming to your town. He
promised that if the Chautauqua
would come, there wotild be a crowd [
to receive it. He has probably
helped put up advertising, handled
a mass of Chautauqua correspond-)
ence, sold his share of tickets and'
made a score of local arrangements.
All this without the hope of one
cent of financial gain—why?   Yes!I
More! He has paid $8.50 for his
own ticket. Because he wanted the
town to have a week of clean,
wholesome entertainment, inspiring
music and instructive lectures.
The Chautauqua committeeman is
a hard-working business or professional man, of the type thc poet
was talking about when hc said, "I
thank thee. 0. Lord! that I have
time for things that don't pay dividends."
A few men of this type make a
town what it is—and the more it
has of them the finer a town it
will be. You should be proud of
your Chautauqua committeeman.

Olive McCormick
The Chautauqua Orchestra
Among ihe younger generation
,.f lingers whole names have leaped
into prominence in the past few
years appears that of Olive McCormick, rVmcrlcan coloratura so-
prano, wh,. is coming to Chautau-
,qtia wiih ihe Chautauqua Symphony
Orchestra. She was soloist for
three consecutive seasons with the
Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra and
later with lhe equally famous Pittsburg Male Chorus. Everywhere
she was received with ovations.
"She was repeatedly encored," says
one metropolitan daily, "as many
as four and five limes before audiences showed any mercy."
Miss McCormick has a voice as
high as any soprano now before the
public—sings high "E" with perfect freedom, trills and does thc
most difficult coloratura passages
with astonishing ease and grace.
She has one of thc most charming
personalities een the Chautauqua
platform and has endeared herself
lee audiences everywhere.
Russian Director
The Chautauqua Orchestra
The peak of Chautauqua musical feature attractions for 11)17 assemblies will be tlie Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, personally con-
elucted by the famous Russian, Mandel Witepskic. The undisputed
prestige enjoyed by this orchestra throughout the Chautauqua circuits
eef the country is elue to two things. Nol only does its conductor, Wilepskie, stand among lhe freenl rani; eef lhe country's great orchestra directors, but his organization includes perhaps ineere feature soloists than
any orchestra (ef a similar character before the public.
Repeatedly nl Lincoln, Nebraska, ami Gladstone, Oregon, Chnutnu-
epias, two of the largest assemblies in the United States, thc Chautauqua
Symphony Orchestra has drawn thc record Crowds, Tlle rousing enthusiasm and ecstatic fervor awakened by this company of musicians is
at limes almost unbelievable, Music is the universal appeal. 'I'o old
and young, rich and ixior, music lovers or not, a greal orchestra is the
same magnet. The great classics as played ley Witopskle's superb
orchestra will carry you I" the heights, their popular music will start
you humming, anil their stirring patrieelic air. will literally sweep you
before ihein.
M. Witepskic, the famous Russian conductor of the Chautauqua
Symphony Orchestra, is a rare com-
bination of technical wizardry and
interpretive genius. His musicianship is bce,t expressed in lhe dash
anil fervid response of his orchestra.
The warmth, sincerity and unaffected manliness of Witepskie's
leadership awaken an enthusiasm
scarcely less tumultuous than lhc
applause for his musicians. He enjoys a distinction second to none
among the really great orchestral
directors of thc present day.
The magnetism of M. Witepskie'l
personality is free of any resort to
gymnastics so common among fain
ous conductors. On the contrary,
whether deftly guiding the harmonies of a simple ballad, or piloting his men through the breakers

Dr. A.D. Carpenter
In "Worlds in the Making" Dr.
Arthur I). Carpenter, the noted astronomer, takes a scientific subject
which in the hands of some would
be "elry as dust," and makes it
sparkle and shine before a popular
audience until all, from lhe "tiniest
tot" to the "oldest inhabitant," are
fired with enthusiasm.
Of immeasurable assistance to
Dr. Carpenter and hie, audiences in
conveying thc great truths of his
lecture is his famous Matlick Tellurian machine, which is a revolving
miniature of the universe. "Worlds
in the Making," as illustrated on
this machine, is without doubt one
of the most brilliant, interest-edged
and inspirational lectures of Chan-
tatujiia week.
J. Sherman Wallace
The Western
J. Sherman Wallace, wiio will
lecture at Chautauqua on the second
afternoon, is a young Western orator who .has forgeti rapidly to thc
front the last few years. He is a
college professor, head of the department of public speaking of
Minnville College, one of the prominent seats of learning in Oregon.
His genial personality, his eloquence, and his brilliant mind have
made him one of the most popular
lecturers before Western Chautauqua audiences. Hc is a deep, logical thinker, with clearness of vision,
and he will leave a lasting impression upon every Canadian assembly.
His lecture subject will be "The
World's Greatest Need"—an inspiring uplifting message.
A Man with
a Mission
Dr, Carpenter treats his work as
a lecturer on Popular Astronomy
not as a 'business but as a mission
lo the masses of thc people. His
one thought is to get men to look
up; comprehend tlieir real place in
the great universe; and cultivate
those elements of life and spirit
which make for real culture, nobility of character, and the highest
moral and social development of
the human race. He appeals to
the imagination, the conviction and
the ambition.
J. C. Herbsman, who lectures on lhc fifth night of Chautauqua, may
easily be called a whirlwind in the art of arousing enthusiasm in community development and enterprise. Charged with enthusiasm and
energy himself, he possesses the power to thrill and inspire to action.
Herbsman knows the problems of the town and cily and he offers
sane, sensible solutions. He is a constructionist of the first order, lie
has a big following among business men everywhere anil if you are
interested in making your town a better place in whicli to live you'll
not miss Herbs-man's lecture.

Formerly occupying the pulpit of

A few montlis ago he resigned his

feel a pardonable pride in having
secured him for the Dominion

him one of the best lecturers on the

Robert Service's latest book of

one of the most important contributions on the World War. These

Marion Ballou Fisk
llefeere Marion llallou Fisk became Chautauqua's foremost lady
cartoonist and lecturer-entertainer
she was engaged in settlement work
in Chicago under the late Dwiglu
L. Moody. Here she was known
throughout the conglomerate warp
and woof of the East Side as "The
Little Mother of the Slums." As a
child little Marion Ballon had
shown a marvellous aptitude for art
and before she was twelve years of
age had illustrated nearly all of the
Old Testament, She did not then
dream of employing her talent other
than as an accomplishment of pleasurable pastime. Later, however,
in teaching classes in the Chicago
slums, where   nine-tenths   of   the
Settlement pupils could not speak a
word of English, her dexterity with
the crayons proved of inestimable
service. While struggling with :i
wriggling mass of young foreigners
who eenilel not keep quiet, Mrs. Fisk
in desperation elrew a picture. The
effect was instantaneous. These
clever pictures wluch spoke all languages soon became a regular part
of her work. Soon she was called
upon lo appear before large societies to illustrate her methods, and
in this way was drawn into Chautauqua.
The subject of her lecture, illustrated with cartoons, will be
"Kwecr Karacters I've Known." The Chautauqua--
A Great Force for the
Common Good
Comus Players
"Carson of the
North Woods"
The insistent demand for the
legitimate drama to hold a conspicuous |ylacc in Chautauqua lias
nowhere been more satisfactorily
answered than in the Comus
Player's production of "Carson of
the North Woods." This play is a
thrilling and inspiring story of the
life in that quaint country around
Quebec. Thc action of the play is
so swift, the dramatic situations so
strongly taut with interest, tlie
comedy so replete with the most
excruciating drollery, that one
seems literally whirled through a
great adventure.
"Carson of the North Woods" is
a drama of sterling quality and
strong moral tone and in the hands
of the Comus [Mayers takes its
rightful place with the classics of
the stage and platform.
Miss Janet Young, the charming
little 'heroine of the play, is one of
the most delightfully naive and
soulful bodies who ever warmed the
hearts of the public. As Marie La
Bell she is irresistible. Miss Young
was formerly of thc Baker Stock
Company of Portland, wliere she
was a general favorite.
Moron Olsen, who enjoyed great
popularity with the almost ultra
critical public of Boston, is the central character in "Carson of the
North Woods." The remainder of
the cast is proportionately strong.

Of the three hundred and thirteen  week-days of  1917, tbe
Chautauqua days furnish the greatest influence that will come to yourl
community for the development of ideals.   The Chautauqua spirit renews the purpose of getting the best out of life.
At the same time, you will be inspired by good music, you will be
thrilled by messages from men who havc done and are doing great
things, and you will be entcrlained and amused by lhe fun and humor
of some of thc best joy-makers the country alTords.
"Live by inspiration, not necessity," is good advice. This program
will furnish inspiration and courage for meeting personal problems;
it will help broaden the horizon and give a higher point of view; it will
provide wholesome diversion and a good time.
You owe it to yourself to take a short let-up from thc daily routine.
That in itself is a good thing. When that relaxation can be used for
getting a new stimulus, it is a doubly good investment. Take tins week
for getting more heart into your work, for getting a greater vision.
The Chautauqua is able to bring to you these great attractions at a
small price because it is a great institution. Its success depends on its
bigness, for only by appealing to a large number of people iu a com-

the opening night, is the Chautauqua sparker, Ile ignites thc enthusiasm that gives Chautauqua
things in general a momentum thai
whirls at top speed until the last
night, when the Hawaiians play and
sing "Aloha" (Farewell and 1/ivc—
to you").
S. Piatt Jones is in the first rank
of tlle continent's great entertainers.
As a characterist and impersonator
he has few equals on the Chautauqua platform. His audiences arc
always in good humor. He has an
inexhaustible supply of stories and
every one breaks like sunshine on
his hearers.
Hc is the man of a thousand
laughs. His character sketches are
convulsing. With a little paint,
several wigs, and a whole lot of art
he loses his identity as Jones before
his audiences and becomes the character he portrays. Every bit of his
humor is clean cut and wholesome.
An evening of good laughter is the
greatest tonic known—hear P. Piatt
Jones on the opening night, then
you will be in wonderful health and
spirits all Chautauqua week.
From Louisiana to Saskatchewan
Fivi Hundred Chautauquai In 1917
From the cotton and cane fields of Louisiana to the wheat and flax fields of the far Canadian north
will stretch the brown-tented way of the Kllison-Whitc Chautauquas in 11117.
Tlle building of this great system of Western Chautauquas from a small beginning of 48 assemblies
in llllll to approximately 500 Chautauquas in 11117 is a great story of achievement. From live slates in
llllll to 111 states and four Canadian provinces in 11117—from one small circuit in 1018 to three greal circuits
in 11)17—from an itinerary mileage of 7.000 miles in 1018 to a combined mileage eef more Ihan 87,000 miles
in 11)17, or one and one-half times the distance around the weerlel—this Remarkable expansion has neit been
by chance.
In the first place it has been because the Chautauqua fills a genuine demand and neeel in the community life of the West.
In thc second place it has been because of the public-spirited men and women everywhere in the
West who have given freely of their time, who have worked untiringly and with unswerving loyalty for
the upbuilding of this great movement.
In the third place this exceptional growth has been because of a careful and efficient management,
conducting their business on a broad substantial basis. Infinite care and attention has been paid to every
detail, whether in the buying of supplies, or the selection of representatives, or the building of programs.
The Ellison White System, operated by men with many years of Chautauqua experience, is an organization
that investigates thoroughly, thinks clearly, plans comprehensively, works intelligently and serves sincerely.
What It Means to Chautauqua Patrons
This extension of thc Ellison-White System is of direct benefit to every Western Chautauqua community. Opening in the South in early spring and closing in Canada in the fall, makes it possible to secure
the pick of the country's talent, because of the extreme length of the season offered. With an enormously
increased buying peewcr it is possible to return to our communities thc benefit of these savings and advantages in bigger and heller programs every *ycar.
