was held in the council chamber on

Dezall in the chair, and Trustees
Mrs. Miles, Gilroy, Henderson and
Mrs. Jackson present.
Plant   for   High   School
Mr. Whiddington, of Lethbridge,
was present and addressed the board
further in regard to his letter addressed to Trustee Henderson, in
the matter of preparing plans for an
addition to the present high school
building and for a new high school.
After some discussion, Mr. Whid-
dington made an offer to prepare
plans for an addition and for a new
building for $500.00. In the event
of an addition being built and he
being favored with the architectural
work, his fee would be reduced to
$200.00, and in the event of a new
school being built and he being favored with the work, the full amount
of $500.00 would be deducted from
his fee of 6 per cent, on the actual
cost of the building.
Later in the evening the following
resolution was passed: moved by
Trustee Gilroy and seconded by Mra.
Miles that Mr. Whiddington be asked to prepare preliminary plans and
an estimate of the cost for a five-
room addition to the high school, also
tentative plans and an estimate of
cost for a new ten-room high school
with auditorium, both buildings to be
of brick and tile construction.

The Herald was glad to be thc
bearer of good news for Mrs. P. W.
Willis last week-end to the effect
that she is one of the lucky winners
of a new Deluxe Library Table Singer electric sewing machine. Mrs.
Willis has won this prize in connection with a contest which the Singer
Sewing Machine Company put on to
find the oldest hundred sewing machines in the United States and Cunada. Word to this effect was received by the Herald from the New York
representatives of the Singer Sewing
Machine Co., who had carried out
the details of the competition and
arranged advertising for it. The
occasion of the competition was the
seventy-fifth anniversary of the
founding of the Singer company.
One hundred and fifty-three thousand and forty women all over the
continent sent information regarding old machines which they possess
ed, and the task of verifying the
age of the machines was a difficult
one. It waa finally worked down
to the oldest hundred, one of which
is owned by Mrs. Willis. The machine in question, which bears the
number 5042-387, and is supposed
to be, according to the records of thc
Singer company, seventy-three years
old, has, as a matter of fact, not
been in the possession of its present
owners very long. It was purchased
locally for a mere song, little thinking that it would have any more Intrinsic value than the amall amount
paid for it. The machine, in fact,
was for some time in the basement
of W. W. Kilby's secondhand establishment, and anyone able to furnish
information as to where it came from
is asked to get in touch with the Herald office, as it is desired to find out
something of the antecedents of the
machine. It is a great deal smaller
than the present day models and is
very effectively decorated with mother-of-pearl on the plate and other
parts of the machine. It is still in
running order, however, and runs remarkably smoothly for its age, a
great deal easier, in fact, than many-
newer machines. For the purpose of
the competition, Mrs. Willis this
week was photographed while nt
work with a piece of goods on the
Of particular interest to members
of the Rod and Gun Club in this district and others who take pleasure
in fishing, is the announcement of
the adoption of an amendment made
the game act just before the
House prorogued, restoring thc former $1.00 per day fishing licence
fee, or $10.00 per year, for nonresidents of the province. Complaint
was made that the $10.00 fee without any aUernattve was detrimental
in that it kept those who did not
desire to remain long from participating in thc fishing which they de-
ired, and so acted against the hotels and business generally. For this
reason, the former $1.00 fee was restored. Another amendment which
it wns sought to put through was
that  proposed  by the  attorney-gen-
ral to provide that in the case of a
farmer shooting game birds for the
protection of his crop, he bc compelled to withhold making any use
of it for his tabic. This proposal was
turned down.
Thc locnl Rod and Gun Club have
received word that Mr. F. Ryder,
who hns been assisting at the hatch-
cry for thc past two seasons, will be
nrriving about thc 81st March, and
thc understanding is that the government has undertaken the payment of
his salary during the months he is
engaged here.
Alternatives  Are  For  New
High School or Addition
to High School
• Friday evening the regular meeting of thc School Board was held in
the City Clerk's office, when several
mutters of importance were discussed.
After the reading and adoption of
the minutes of the previous meeting
Mr. II. M. Widdington, registered
architect, of Lethbridge, conferred
with the board on the matter of providing an extension for the High
School for next year. As intimated
in previous issues the school board
will be forced to provide an extra
room next year. This, added to the
fact that nt present the auditorium is
divided into three rooms, with twenty-two pupils on the stage—an arrangement which is working a hardship on both pupils and teachers—it
is abundantly evident that provision
has got to be made for more room
before next September.
The School trustees have been considering the matter earnestly for the
past few months and have come to
the conclusion that the matter should
be decided at once. In the opinion
of some of thc board an extension
should be made to the present building, while others feel that an entirely new building should be erected on
the site already acquired by the
It had been decided by the board
to obtain preliminary information to
enable them to submit to the ratepayers an accurate idea of the cost
of the proposed plans, and after
thoroughly considering the matter
from all angles the board decided to
engage Mr. Whiddington to design a
five-roon> addition to the present
school, as well as tentative plans for
a new school. Should the ratepayers not sanction either of the two
propositions thc eity will have been
put to only a smull expense, and will
have tho satisfaction of knowing that
they have obtained reliable information for the ratepayers.
It is expected that the architect
v ill prepare his plans nnd estimates
as speedily ns possible, so that the
matter may be presented to the ratepayers in order thut a decision may
be arrived at, so thnt the building
may be ready for the fnll term.
Correspondence from the Univers-
• of British Columbin relative to
the alleged difference in the examination for Grade 12 and first year University wns read. This was a matter
which the trustees took up with Dean
Klinck on thc occasion of his recent
visit and referred to in a recent issue of the Herald.
In order that there may be no
misunderstanding in regard to the
date of thc opening of the fishing
season in this locality, the following
from the provincial police should be
well understood:
(•1) In the electoral districts of
Columbia, Fernie and Cranbrook no
one shnll fish for, catch or kill any
variety of trout from thc 15th day
of November in each year to the
30th day of April following, both
days inclusive.
Provided that fishing for trout in
Premier, Smith, Rock and Twin
Lukes may be conducted from April
15th to November 14th, in each year,
and  both  dnys  inclusive.

Wednesday evening the Star Theatre was filled to capacity when a
double bill was presented. First, an
interesting picture, "So There You
Arc," and a one-act farce put on by
members of thc Women's Institute,
which created lots of laughter from
start to finish. The play waa entitled "Mrs. Black's Pink Tea."

Les Dwelley, the waiter and chief of
thc Nihilists, Mrs. Elder, the Princess Sophia, Mrs. Stewart Mcintosh,
the Countess Alexandra, Louise Robertson, thc hotel cashier, and N. Connolly, the stage Johnny, all contributed very acceptably in solo,

taking more prominent parts were
the following: Don Dallas, Billie Taylor, Harry Doris, Albert A. Dobson,
Allan McBroom and B. A. Murgatroyd.
Pretty Sitting!
There were many attractive choruses and many pretty dances. The
dancing of Mrs. Carlyle, as illustrative of the dancing of today, aB well
as the clever execution of the Russian dance by Miss Aubrey McKowan, are  worthy  of special  mention.
The orchestra, which gave several
pleasing selections, was composed of
the following: Messrs. W. G. Thompson, L. Burton, R. Linnell, J. Ward,

members. The financial statement
for the past year, presented by the

condition, and making most satisfactory progress. Directors were appointed for the coming year as follows: Mrs. M. McCreery, Mrs. J. G.

| a large number of dogs, principally
English foxhounds. Mr. Shuttleworth
has established quite a record as a
cougar hunter, having captured thirty-two cougars to date and twenty-
five coyotes.
His experience covers a period of
twenty years. An event which
brought him prominently into the
limelight wus the capture of the cougar which killed a fourteen-year-old
boy in Washington State a few yean
ago. He is assisted by Mr. Greenwood of Canal Flats as a guide, and
expects to 5>e in thc territory for
three or four weeks.
The Alien Players, with Miss Ver-
na Felton, aro due to arrive in the
city this afternoon, Thursday, and
will put on a matinee of their farce
comedy, "The Whole Town's Talking," at the Auditorium, as well as
the evening performance.
Hilarious comedy is a fitting description of "The Whole Town's
Ta'king," a production that provokes
a luugh a minute all through its three
acts, anil brings down the house with
a "wow" of a finish. The finished
work of the company is worthy of a
full audience at the Auditorium, and
their offering can be recommended
as something thnt should not be miss-
ed by all those who enjoy clever acting nnd good honest fun. There is
not a dull moment throughout the
entire piece, the actors falling out of
one complication into another in a
manner that keeps the audience in a
continual roar. The comedy will be
presented for the last time to-night,
and there should be a packed house
to show that Cranbrook is willing to
support worth while productions.

Dog Stars of the Chateau Team
Whether or not the cameraman
chased these huskie dogs over
the countless miles of snow he claims
in order to catch them with their
tongues hanging out und out of
breuth is hard to tell. There is no
denying however that he has obtained
an admirable set of pictures. The
victims of the chase ure: at the left,
"Jeff", and "Fang" at the right, two
of the seven huskies of the Chateau
Frontenac Dog Team. This team is
led by "Mountie" a veteran with a
romantic record of service in the fur
north, with the Royal Canadian
mounted Police.   '

It might be interesting, to some

I shall have something in readiness.
For the present I shall try to outline

Sunday   Services
I have been following a series of
sei mens for several weeks pust, both
morning and evening. In the morning the general theme has been based
on the second and third chapters of
Revelations, "The Letters of Christ
to the Seven Churches of Asia."
Next Sunday morning we shull consider tho church at Philadelphia under the topic, "The Letter of Christ
to an Evangelistic Church." On
Sunday evenings we have been fol-
owing a series on the life of Joseph,
ihe general theme being "Realizing
Our Ideals." The subject for next
Sunday evening will be "Father and
Son." Our aim is to make the even-
ng service of a popular nature, using
old-time hymns and making use of
the lantern to illustrate the messages.
The attendances at both morning
and evening services have kept up
very well indeed during the winter
months, but we could accomodate
many more. You will find a welcome
awaiting you at the Baptist Church,
tnd we extend a hearty invitation to
i.i who are not regulur attendants
The Sunday School
Splendid interest has been tnken
u the Sunday School. We have had
record attendances for the pust few
months, due in part to new enthus-
usm aroused over a very interesting
•ontest which hns been going on since
'ast October. The contest is called
"An Automobile Race Across Canada." Each class has selected a particular make of car, and has mounted a picture of their car on cardboard. All the curs started together
ast October from Halifnx on their
journey, und the majority of them
are now in Saskatchewan or Alberta,
A certain number of miles can be
gained each Sunday according to the
number of children in each respective class, and their faithfulness in
attendance. The race has been quite
close. It is difficult to guess the win
ier as yet. The winning class will
be banqueted by the losers ut the
c'ose of the contest. Mr. Harry R.
Hinton makes a very efficient superintendent. The school is using the
graded lessons throughout; is in possession of a splendid growing library, and a very fine, consecrated
statf of teachers is on hand every
Sunday. Have you a little one in
your home who is not attending any
Sunday school? We should be glad
to look after such a one if you have.
Are you just a little indifferent in
this matter? Do you know that 97
per cent of the criminals in the United States como from boys and girls
who have never attended Sunday
School? That means thut of all the
criminals in that country only .'J per
cent, have had religious instruction
i>r training in their youth. Send your
boy or girl to some Sunduy Schoo
in the city,—or better still bring
Ihem yourself and remain to one of
our classes, which brings me to my
next subject.

of the morning service, but the attendances have not been large. The
study course which we hnvo been following has been the New Testament
from un historical point of view, and
in connect ion with this kind of n
course we find many opportunities
for free and open discussions on
timely topics and problems. We are
just a group of men having hnd vnry
ing experiences who are seeking the
truth and endeavoring to help each
other. We are anxious that more
men may join us, and please rotnem-

Tuxis Square
(Tuesday Evening at 8 o'clock in
the Sunday School  Rooms.)
T-U-X-I-S. What a strange nnme
I haven't any idea who invented the
word, but if ynu nre really onxio
to know, go to Sherman Harris or
Murray Garden. Either will be able
to toll' you. As to tho meaning of
the word, take the letters separately:
T.—The first letter of the word,
standing for "Truining." The young
lads from thirteen to twenty In training.
S.—Tho last letter, standing for
"Selfishness?"—the end of nil training? Being trained so that they can
get a greut deal of money nnd power? Perhaps, We hope not. "9"
stands for "Service"—just the op-
posite of "Selfishness," The realization of the better self in worthwhile service for others,
U and I.—Tho second and fourth
letters of the word. They mean just
what they say~"You" and Hl" trained for service.    1'lvaae notice that
U" comes before  "I."    Unselfishness.
X.—Now you must know Greek
in order to understand this word, or
this letter which stands for a word.
X" stands for "Christ." It is the
Greek letter nt tho beginning of the
Greek word "Xristos," which means
"Christ." (That is where we get the
abbreviation in the word X-mfas.)
And since "X" is the centre of the
word "Tuxis," it therefore means
that Christ must be the centre of
ull our thoughts nnd plans and hopes.
A Tuxis boy would explain it to us
'n this manner; "T" stands for training, "S" for service, "Christ in the
centre, "You" and "I" on either side,
nothing but  Christ  between   us.
There are about sixteen or eigh- i
teen boys in our Tuxis group. Mr.
II. S. Haynes is the popular and efficient leader of the boys, and Mur-1
ray Garden is the president, They j
hold their week-night meeting1 on j
Tuesday evenings, and on Sunduy
Mr. Haynes is their teacher.

C. G. I. T.
More strange letters. I can readily
understand that a person who doesn't
know his A.B.C. could never get
along in these days when letters are
used so much, as, for instance, how
could we ever decipher such combinations as I.X.L., or P.G.E., or K.K.K.,
or S.O.S., or P.D.Q. But to get back
to the problem, "C.G.l.T." Taking
a letter at a time:
C.—Stands for "Canadian."
G.—"Girls." Canadian girls, there
are none better in the world. .
I.—"In." ]
T.—"Training." Canadian Girls
in Training. I wonder why the train-1
ing comes last,-—yet I might have
known, too.   They are Canadian girls
trisk spin
in the
cup of
after that. A boy must be in training a long time, therefore he puts!
the "T" first in his program. Never
mind, boys—-we'll see that the Cana-
dians girls do get trained in the end,'

of the senior C.G.l.T, group at their
week-night meetings, but on Sunday'
Mrs. II. S. Haynes teaches them, each i
of them mothers with growing sons
and dnughters of their own, nnd living examples for the girls under their
charge. There are about ten girls
in this group.
The junior group is in chnrge of
Miss Jessie Mclnnis. There are sev-
.-n or eight juniors being trained and
i'tiided, and making splendid progress
n their development, along the fourfold road—Wisdom, Stature, Favour
with God and Man.

Prayer   Meeting
We have a prayer meeting every
Thursday evening. Our average attendance through the winter has
been about twenty-five, or thereabouts, men und women, young and
old. Our programmes vary, but always there is an opportunity for
prayer, and helpful talks are given
both by membcis as well as the pastor. We feel that we could not get
along without this week-night meet-
ng of fellowship. We ask you to
loin with us at any time you may
■'eel inclined, irrespective of denomination or creed. Please feel free to
■ome in at any time.
* * •
Now, just one other word and you
won't hear from me for a whole
month. I take it for granted that
ill know about our Ministerial As-
ociution in this city. Rev. Bryce
Wallace of the United Church is the
• ery efficient and agresslve president.
The other members are as follows:
Rev. M. S. Blackburn, the secretary.
Rev. Harrison, rector of the Anglican
Church, Captain Anderson from the
•salvation Army, Mr. J. Morris Clark
rom the Y.M.C.A., and V. H. Mac-
Neil! from the Baptist Church. We
neet monthly for fellowship and
luslness, Do you know that this as-
toclatlon endeavors to look after the
deserving poor in our midst all the
vear round? Gifts are handed in to
the secretary of the Relief Committee, Mr. Clark, from various service
clubs of the city, and the money or
clothing is used to relieve distress
and suffering when such cases are
drawn to our attention. Do you
know that some twenty or thirty
families were helped in the year that
bus passed by this association working in conjunction and co-operation
with the service clubs and interested
individuals in the city? Do you know
that many of these needy folk professed no connection with any particular religious body? We believe
in religious liberty, and that every
sect has u right to propogate their
owa peculiar beliefs, bue we do resent it when other sects abuse and
belittle our work and efforts. We
are on the job fifty-two weeks In
the yenr, with the exception of a
few weeks' holidays in the summer.
We represent different denominations, and we may differ in certain
points of doctrine, but wc do not
criticise nnd condemn ench other.
We are seeking to work together In
one common cause, and with unity
of purpose.
In closing let me remind you that
Easter is drawing near. There will
be special services in all of our
churches in that city. On March
28rd, the Bnptlst Womens Mission
Circle will present their play on
Missions in China. On March 27th,
Dr. C. C. McLaurln, pioneer minister
und missionary of Alberta, will
preach, morning and evening. On
April 3rd, Rev. B. C. Freeman, Baptist Young People's Secretary for Alberta and B.C., will be with us, remaining through the week and over
the following Sunday, We are looking forward to Mr. Freeman's visit.

The question of church property
involved in the Church Union proposals, a settlement of which waa
left to the legislature, was to be dealt '
with in a bill to be brought before
the legislature during last week-end,
and which wus passed on the report
made by the joint committee representing the denominations involved
in church union. One of the outstanding questions to be settled was
the disposition of the Nanaimo Presbyterian church title, which has been
the subject of controversy since
church union went into effect. Under the measure introduced into the
house, this property remains vested
in the Presbyterian Church, subject
to the reservation thnt*the parsonage
remain in the possession of the United Church until June 30th of this
year. In resuming the property, the
Presbyterians nlso take on any
charges connected  with it. j
Another property at Vancouver
Island involved in the settlement is
that of St. Andrew's Church at Dun- ■
can. This nlso goes to the Presbyterian denomination, along with the
property in Quamichan district,
which is to bc used for the Presby-
terian extension work by the Duncan
congregation, subject to any charges
still on the property and also a liability of $250.00 to the United
Church body. Various other church
properties, mostly on the lower mainland were denlt with by the com- j
mission, which hus completed its
work, and upon whose report made
t'o the Attorney-Genoral, the measure
brought before the house was based.

This letter Is written In order to
show two things with which most
people ore unfamiliar, namely, the
Government's real treatment of returned soldiers and the scant satisfaction to be had from asking questions on the floor of the House. I
am not writing for sympathy on my
behalf, as I know that mine is but
one of many similar oases, but I am
simply writing to explain a few
things that the public ought to know.
Ever since the war the Oliver Government set itself up as the special
friend of the returned man, but my
experience of five years with an ac-
Dezall's Garage
An Entirely New Evolutionary Car, which wiD ba l\

See the New Sedan Models on
tiva returned man's organisation has
convinced me to the contrary. I um

In Mny 1911 I entered the Water
Rights Branch, being assigned to the
Cranbrook district, where I remained
till June 1915! when I joined the 54th
Battalion and went overseas. On
being dtmobilizad I was returntd to
same position as District Engineer
and have not to the present time
ever hoard of any complaint as to
my work.
Little Notice Given
i In February, 1925, thu Comptroller of Water Rights wrote me advising that the branch would be closed
from February 24th and as he snid
"in the Interests of economy.'' Please
note that this four days' notice was
my first intimation of such proposed
Getting no further satisfaction I
went, at my own expense, to Victoria to learn why I should be so summarily dismissed after l-l years' service. On meeting the Minister of
Lands 1 asked for some explanation
nnd not the reply: "Didn't you receive
the Comptroller's letter?" This was
no answer and on my pressing for
one, the Minister wna indiscreet
enough to burst out, "Well, some of
you fellows think you can't be
fired." I then realized what I suspected always, namely, that the reason given me in the letter was a mere
sham and I insisted on being told whether there had been any complaints
against me. I could not then get
and never have got nn answer to this
for the simple reason, as the Minister well knew, that no complaint
about my work or behaviour generally had ever been made in an honorable way.
Now I would ask you to please
note that there had been no suggestion from the Government of giving mc another position (nothing in
fact but a curt dismissal) nnd that I
had to journey to Victoria to get
Offered Six Months' Work
Seeing, no doubt, thnt I understood tho real reason for my dismissal, the Minister then suggested that
I wait in Victoria a week. I remained two weeks at my own expense
and on returning to Cranbrook I received a letter from the Comptroller
offering nie six months' work each
year in the Cariboo, but having no
as-surance of different treatment nt
any future time, I had to refuse this
belated offer.
Now comes the joker. In spite of
the letter nbout economy another
man was brought from a different
part of thc province to do my work
at Cranbrook, where I wns living with
my family. What, then, you may
ask. was the real reason for my dis
missal? Why did ;i cabinet minister
stoop to do such an unjust and ron-
temptlble thing'.'
Now to show that the minister has
not dared to give a straight answer,
let me refer to questions asked him
in the House on February 24th, 1027.
This plain quest inn was asked: "Had
any  complaint   been   received  as  to
the work or behaviour of said Hicks
and if yes, what was the nature of
' the complaint and by whom made?"
t Answer: "Mr. Hicks was retired when
I Cranbrook   office  was  closed."    The
■eek  renewing old  anpinin-
kI attending to hi.- imsiness
evasion is patent. If there had been
any complaint the minister could have
said so nnd if there had been no complaint, he should at least have cleared my name. The minister knew

not of a nature lhat he could speak

I consider my treatment, after so
many years of honorable service, as
heartless injustice. It is only one of

serve to illustrate tlie rank hypocrisy
of u Government which for many

j the Kootenny wapiti or elk, under the
j practical   protection   of   the   British
Columbia   game   laws,   has   "come
back"  and   multiplied  so   rapidly  in
late years that they arc now numbered in herds of thousands,  according
to .1. E. French, big game hunter and
guide  who   accompanied   an   expedition of the Field Museum of Chicago
into  the  haunts  of the wapiti last
■ year, as mentioned in the Herald at
J that time.
i      "Nn  more remarkable  example of
| the  excellent results of careful big
game   conservation   exists   today   iu
! Canada  than   the  large   numbers  of
; Kootenay wapiti." Mr. French stated
at   Vancouver  recently, and   further
1 expressed the opinion that  it  would
he safe tn allow hunting under a very
limited bag for an indefinite  period
at least.
Probably most people wil! recognize this noblest of all thc deer family by the better-known name of elk.
Jn times long gone by. its range wus
as extensive as that of the buffalo.
Aboul the only difference between
these twn hardy quadrupeds was that
the elk ranged farther west and not
SO far north us tin- bison. Of the
many millions that formerly existed
in the western part of Canada and
Northern l'nited States, there is but
a shadow of their former numbers
left, and their range is very limited.
In British Columbia there are two
main herds, not counting some few
scattered here and there and one that
was introduced into the I.illooet district. One. the smaller of these two
herds, is located in a densely-timbered section of Vancouver Island.
The other, much the larger herd, is
in the high park country nnd semi-
dry belt of the Rockies of East Kootenay. These Kootenay animals
average larger and finer than those
of the coast, and compare very favorably with the best of the L'nited
States herd in Yellowstone Park.
They have the distinction of being
the only wapiti in Canada for whicb
an open season exists.

THURSDAY,  MARCH  10th.  1927
FRATERNITY, brotherhood, service in a cum-
munity sense, and suchlike terms, are at the
present time, in every direction, heing emphasized
as they never were before. Organizations with the
underlying idea of these terms as their life germ
are springing into being ti»> last tc, count, and sonic
with very little possibility of ever putting it into
practice. The very facl it is considered at
the present time in this enlightened age that there
is unparalleled scope (or -uch an outlook, is, however, in be taken n* an encouraging feature. So
many thing- seem to be going on, it is said, that
are out of tune «>tli whal is intended, that there
is greater need than ever for emphasis t" be placed
on the unselfish outlook,
But, the question i- being naturally asked, how
is it that with such a multiplicity of organizations
at work towards supposedly unselfish ends, such
slow progress seems to be made in the direction of
a (tiller understanding nt the Golden Rule, and how
is it thai il- interpretation into terms o( general
conduct seems s<» ineffective?
It seems to be once ngain a case of the human
clement failing. The Golden Rule is no less applicable t,> the ills of the world today as it was at
the time ii was firsl disseminated, but human nature
seems no more willing to bend to it now than then.
Tlte great difficulty many men and women have
today arises from thc fact that it is not realized that
such things as the spirit "i service, brothcrliness, sis-
teriiness, fraternity—by whatever term it may be
called—are nol to be confined within thc narrow
limits of any one organization. It has got to permeate all through the complex structure of twentieth century life. Societies which exist for the
cultivation "i this spirit are merely the generating
stations, as it were, ior working up the dynamic
spirit with which their members should be charged
for tlieir contact with the outside world. One cannot run their own business in a selfish and self-
centred way, and then go into a meeting and bubble
over with brothcrliness. It is quite possible to
run a business strictly for business' sake, self first,
and other interests afterwards, and so far as material gain goes, make a fine thing of it. Rut to
expect to run an organization or society along these
lines makes nothing more than a mockery of it, a
hollow sham with hypocrisy sticking out all fiver it.
The reason, after all. is not far to seek. A person in business is dealing only with their own reputation, which is theirs to make or mar as they
choose.   With any organization, however, it is dif
ferent. Its members are dealing with something
not their own. They bold in trust, as it were, an
illimitable (und oi goodwill, friendship and unselfish ideals, intangible qualities tbat will no more mix
with tbe spirit that sometimes manifests itself in
business than oil with water. This is why the most
successful business man. a- tbe standard of material
things goes, can yet be responsible for wrecking
some organization to whicli he may belong, ln the
one case only tlieir own name is at stake, while in
the other case il is the organization as a whole.
The true spirit of service involves sacrifice—the
sinking of little personal considerations, the stifling
j of deeply-rooted antipathies—sacrifices like this till
lit hurt'.. There is no sacrifice or service unless
I there i- something relinquished. There must be
I voluntary loss before there can bc gains made in the
attainment of tlie high ideals fraternal and hrother-
'hood obligations emphasize. Thus it is apparent
■that membership in organizations of tbis kind imposes responsibilities, and while it is not permissible
I always to divulge their inner workings to the world.
I what is needed is an exemplification of the true
llodgeroom spirit outside its walls.
The narrow, single-track selfish and coldly impersonal business spirit   «ill kill any  lodge or  30-
I ciety, or any organization, whatever its nature, but
there is no legitimate business in  the  world that
twill not be the better ior injecting into it more of
', the true loclgeroom spirit.

IT is not long ago when the School Hoard of the

This is just the spirit in which the problem now
before the school board must be faced. It is not
altogether present conditions wliich have to bc considered, but what has the future iu store? There
are the three alternatives now to be brought up. an
entirely new high school, a substantial addition to
the present building,  or  to  continue  in  cramped
j quarters for a while longer, till the elucidation of
1 the matter may become plainer in view of possible
altered trends  in education.
! The school 1 oard will no doubt be prepared to
take steps towards informing the ratepayers fully
.upon all phases of the various courses proposed to
meet the situation. Many people are withholding
their opinion iu the matter till they can learn more
of the circumstances, and what lias led the school
board   to   conclusions   they   are   apparently   in
.accord on, as to tbe need for more accommodation.

The shipping offices arc being be-
seiged by people inquiring for passages, he said, adding that Canada
was more in the public eye nt present
than any other of tiie dominions or

Monday for trial, having been committed by Magistrate I.eask on
charges of breaking into premises,

was the result of their escapades recently, when the Hanson Garage, Dezall's Garage, Towriss & Roberts'

The young offenders ranged in age
from seven years to twelve, and they

losses of several hundred dollars.
The offenders were accompanied to
court in most, cases by Iheir parents,
and severely admonished by Judge
Thompson, and given varying terms

off the streets nt night, and generally showing by their conduct that

lecture staff of the International
Bible Students' Assoeiatoin, in the
K, P. Hall, when the position of the
Bible Students' Assoc*iation with regard to the alleged Impending war
and its significance with respect to
their teaching was most clearly set
forth. While, as the speaker intimated himself, there were doubtless
many present who would nut agree
with all that he had to say, still he
must be given credit for being frank
in his criticisms of those with whom
the Bible stu don ta disagreed, thus affording thoso who hold opinions contrary an opportunity of knowing the
light in which they stood by those
who claim that the church is in error
in the matter of religious atfairs.
Another Cataclysm
Choosing as his subject "The
Crash of Nations," the speaker stated that another war is brewing in
Euiope is a foregone conclusion. In
support of their claim as to the probability of such a war, the speaker
said that while in the minds of most
people in 1914 we were "basking in
peace," the great war was suddenly
forced upon us, whereas he claimed
the Bible students had been preaching that such a war would take place
forty years previous to that date.
The war which had been fought to
end war had given instead of universal peace a world beset with revolution, famine and pestilence, calamity was succeeding calamity, and all
preparations were being made for
another world war which, to his mind,
would make the recent world war
look like a pleasant world holiday.
Quoting from an article in the
Toronto Star entitled "Getting Ready
for What?" the speaker showed that
the United States were appropriating
huge sums of money for aeronautics,
which meant that lhey wanted to be
'.n a position in the next war to be
able to attack with poison gasses,
bombs and pestilence germs, thus the
war, instead of being fought in No
Man's Land, would be fought in any
portion of the world, making not
only those between the ages of 18
and 45, but all from the youngest to
ihe oldest directly subject to its effects. All the nations being thus
equipped he felt that modern civilization would be blasted off the face of
the earth. Under present conditions
he claimed the human race was becoming insane al such a pace that
within two hundred years there
would not be enough sane people
to look- after the insane.
Civilization Traced Down
In reflecting on the civilization as
we had it today, he said that a man
who was hungry and stole got thirty-
six days, whereas the man who took
$10.00 from each pocket was a busi-
und thy seed shall all the nations of
the earth be blessed," likening same
to a ransom for all those who had
been born under the sentence of
death. Christ's death being the
means of the restoration of the lost
Kden, the prophecy being thus fulfilled — "Ab in Adam, all died, so
in Christ shnll all be made alive,"
The period of time between the
loss and restoration of Eden the
speaker claimed to be 7000 years.
Time, so far as the world was concerned, was divided into three |
periods—the first ended with the'
flood, the second in which Heaven |
and earth were reserved unto fire,!
and thirdly a world wherein dwelleth
righteousness. World No. 2 came
to an end in 1014, while world No.
3 will begin after the great Armageddon, which is alleged to he fast approaching. Thus many now living
will never die. ,
The  End Coming
Claiming that all prophecy was being fulfilled to thc letter, the speaker said that the wisdom of the supposedly wise, the religious people
of which there were 220 brands of
Christian hypocrites, was perishing,
and that the time of the world war
had been exactly foretold as taking
place 2520 years after 006 B.C.
Wars and rumors of wars, nations
rising up against nations, and kingdoms against kingdoms, were all
signs of the times which they foretold, the final sonow being the great
Armageddon which wns about to occur. The wealth of the world waa
concentrating in the hands of a few,
and the rich men were howling and
weeping ns bolshevism was descending upon them from the north. The
Bible and the newspapers when read
side by side showed that the end was
The speaker then went into a criticism of the clergy, whom he claimed
he had paid to do his thinking for
him, but he found that as a class
they hnd been willingly ignorant regarding the matters. Thc Christian
people knew not where they stood.
Selfishness, he claimed, reigned supreme in thc hearts of individuals
and nations.
The speaker claimed that in the
church there was much religious corruption. The women, he claimed,
were too bu**y nt other things to attend to spiritual things; church organizations were not conducive to any

Death cnme to Mrs. J. C. McGowan

of age, and bad been employed as
mill operator at the Concentrator
for about three yenrs. Mondny of
ast week he was removed to the
hospital suffering (from pneumonia,
und died, as already stated, just over
a week later. He was popular with

Tbe   Red  River   Expedition
(Continued i
The projrrePK of   the   Red   River
Settlement   was   rapid.    The   incorporation of the Manitoba South-eastern Railway by th** provincial legislature   was   actually 'disallowed   in
1882    by   tin*   trover mir- gene ral    in
council because it contrnvencoexisting federal contracts. Tlu* Free Preia,
hitherto a supporter of '.he Norquay
administration, threw   its   influence
against tin* paralyzing policy of disallowance.    Thomas Greenway, leader of the opposition, advocated protest  against   such  an   interference
with provincial rights. The monopoly
clause   IS   in   the  Canadian   Pacific
Railway contract Df 1880, precluding
for twenty years competition except
I by such lines as shall run south-west

i sioned by the granting; to that company of alternate sections of twenty-
four miles on either side the railway.
had already become the topic about
which  the   "Times" and the  "Free
I'ress"   waged   their  editorial   duels.
| "Railway policy" became a party issue, and  parties  began  to conform
more rigidly   to   the   exigencies   of
' federal policies.
I A Mini, imc Boom
I     Meanwhile    the    development    of
Manitoba hithe:to in defiance of isolation and neglect, -seemed to justify
' the belief that wilh the advantage of
I the railway from the south, east and
I west,  the  growth  of   the   province
would surpass all calculations, Pending the settlement of the route, every
village was potentially a city, e»ry
1 town  was  potentially  a  metropolis.
Accounts  of maps meeting, of civic
I enterprise and of dcputifcions to the
[ govtirnment,   through   all   of  which
ran the grey threat of pnrty politics,
appeured in the press of Winnipeg,
and  were  emulated at   Portage   La
Prairie, at Emerson, at West Lynne
and at Selkirk.    Rivalry existed before actual competition could begin.
Had the route of the railway been de-
Ing, reckless assertion, and adroit
manipulation of public confidence
the homestead was turned into suburban acreage for subdivision. Real
estate was bought and sold like
wheat and potatoes. The homesteader, the merchant, the clergyman and
the speculating travellor joined in
the scramble for the unearned increment.
Real Ettate Fever
The autumn of 1881 saw the culmination of the boom. Nothing
equal to it, said u writer in "Manitoba and the Great North-west," had
ever before occurred on Canadian or
British soil. With the completion of
the railway to Portage La Prairie the
struggling farmer found himself
"lifted from comparative poverty to
opulence." In Winnipeg tin* demand
for quick returns and the love of
txtravagant profits enuld no longer
be satisfied through the offices df
the real estate agent. Auctioneers
disposed of whole tounsites by auction. Names of places unknown before and long since forgotten appeared in the advertising columns of the
press. Real estate was the one topic
of interest. The echo was heard as
far as New York and London. As
prices rose, the small investors, with
hundreds of dollars, combined their
capital in syndicates for the purpose
of speculating in town property with
the real estate register of the "Free
Press. As late as February, I8H2.
a lot on Main Street sold for .flO.OOO,

Abandonment of the principle of
beer by the g'ass was contained in a
resolution put on the order paper
in the legislature before the house
proposed by H. G. Perry. Fort George,
seconded by N. A. Wallinger, Cranbrook, which aimed to give the right
to beer parlors to sell beer by the
bottle, a righ which is now exclusively r<served to the Liquor Control
Board .
The proposal contained in the
amendment was that persons holding
liquor permits, upon showing them
1 in beer parlors, may purchase -up to
twenty-four pints of bottled beer,
to be removed from the premises for
consumption. The move came as a
result of representations of Vancouver hotelmen, who argued that as a
result of the present system of sales,
guests purchased beer outside of the
hotel for consumption in their rooms,
and ail that the hotel proprietor obtained was the empty bottles.
Opponents of the amendment
maintained that the public voted on
the principle of beer by the glass,
and not by the bottle, and that any
change ir. the system of sales should
be submitted to the voters on a plebiscite.

The projected visit to this city of
Col. Webb, mayor of Winnipeg, who
is coming under the auspices of the
Canadian Legion, hns been put back
for a few days, previous engagements
huving prevented Col. Webb from
being here when it was first thought
he would. It is stuted that he will
most likely be here some time next
week. He has expressed a desire
j while here to visit Kimberley, and
i while there may look over the Sullivan Mine and the Concentrator, as
well as addressing the members of
the Kimberley Legion. During his
visit to Cranbrook he will be entertained by the Legion members, and
will most likely be the guest of the
returned men at a smoker for members and honorary members, which
will be arranged. Col. Webb, who
is an outstanding figure in Legion
circles, became mayor of the prairie
metropolis nfter a very shirt residence there, becoming noted for his
outspoken opposition to the radical
element. He went overseas us the
officer commanding a divisionui train,
and reverted to the rank of lieutenant in order to get into a fighting
unit. He was finally mude the officer cammanding the 47th battalion.
He has spoken in every province in
Canada on matters pertaining to the
returned men, and his visit here is
looked forward to with intense interest.

places, but we also hear of the periodical closing of these plants, which
