Gyro Shew One
of Best Ever
Splendid Reception Accorded
Presentations of "The Beauty
Shop" Last Week
Again Cranbrook talent has
triumphed. Such seems to be the
unanimous opinion of those who were
fortunate enough to seo "The
Beauty Shop," the musical comedy
revue presented by the Cranbrook
Gyro Club under the direction of C.
II. Lewis, the capable leader, who,
despite many obstacles, trained in an
unusually short space of time the
talent he found available in this city,
so that in less than three weeks time
he was able to stage a ^performance
which would have done credit to a,
much larger community. Cranbrook
was signally honored in having Mr,
Lewis visit it, as it is the first time
that he has attempted to stage a play
of its kind in a place the size of
Undoubtedly all the advance
notices regarding the show being a
hit, and the most pretentious ever
presented in the Kootenay, did not
by any means overrate it. The
Gyro Club, who undertook to sponsor
the affair must be given credit for
their initiative and all will be pleased to learn that it was also a success
Plenty of Laughs
From the time the curtain rises till
it is rung down in the last act. the
interest in the story is never lost.
Laugh succeeds laugh, between which
ere songs, choruses and dances which
Were all well received. The costumes
worn by the company added in no
smalt manner to the success of the
Starting with a scene in a supposed
Beauty Shop where Dr. Budd, like
many other business men who are
always out, is always in debt, his
creditors finally becoming his most
frequent callers. Here the story of
how Dr. Budd's attorney, hearing of the death of an uncle
of a ward of the Doctor's in Corsica,
inveigles him into going to Corsica
to obtain the fortune, which is depending on the successful outcome
of a vendetta, which would be his,
provided, of course, that he married
his ward.
The second act takes the party to
sunny Corsica where the Doctor
learns of the vendetta for the first
time. The Doctor, despite his
troubles, never fails to fall for the
many Senoritas that cross his path.
Choosing the least of two evils, death
or marrying a maiden whose beauty
could never cause her to be linked up
ns a near relation of Venus, he
promises to marry Natalie (Miss Bessie Woodman) who take the part of
the infatuated lover to perfection. In
the face of death, good fortune overtakes Budd, in that his face remedies
work n wonderful effect upon Natalie's homeliness, so that the father is
overjoyed and pays the Doctor a very
large sum, and his Oorsican rival,
lover of Natalie, to whose arms she
returns, calls off the vendetta nnd
all ends well.
Very Creditable Cast
While all the performers acquitted
themselves well, performers and au-
dince all pay special tribute to Mr.
Chester Staples whose work showed
him to he a finished actor nnd in no
way an amateur. Also to Miss
Gracio Miggins, who brilliant performance of the part assigned her,
Lola, a spanish dancer, won for her
the admiration of all. To a Herald
representative the leader, Mr. Lewis,
stated that he was fortunate in having two such artists in Cranbroo).
as Miss lliggius and Mr. Staples.
Among others taking principal
parts there were many who are not
strangers to the footlights, all of
whom added new lustre to their reputations. These were Miss Francis
Drummond, as Vivian; Dr. Fergie,
as chairman of the Creditors' Committee; Austin McDonald, as the attorney; A. C. Shankland, as the innkeeper, and G. F. Marsh, as the undertaker, Les Dwelley as the duellist,
ami Roy Beech as the Spanish dancer.
Others making their first bow to
Cranbrook audiences were Mrs. Marsden, who created it very favorable
impression as "Dolores," the souvenir
girl, her song being loudly applauded.
Mrs. William Elder, a newcomer
to Cranbrook, made a capable custodian of the Beauty Shop, and Miss
Ha Slye, as Anne, the ward of Dr.
Budd, is being given much praise
for the capable manner in which she
curried out her part. In theatrical
parlance, she is the stage find of the
season. As the bashful, financially
limited lover of Anne, "Stew" Black
distinguished himself. Mrs. A. G.
Hill, as the Beauty Shop customer,
and as the Spunish lover of the song,
"Carita," took her part' well. Miss
Gwen Slye, who according to Dr.
Budd had tattn WntU all «it of
RECOGNl-.wi ruK l
Saturday night a meeting wns held
when Messrs T. R. Flett, W. E. War-1
den nnd A. B. Smith were present as
representatives of the Board of
Trade, Farmers' Institure, Agricultural Association nnd the Stockbreeders' Association. They brought up
the question of some public recognition for the teams that won the medals at the Coast last fall, and it was
decided to hold a supper for Mr. Hay
and all pupils of his class, and would
probably take place some time after
Faster. This will be definitely announced Inter. It is hoped people
will give this good support. Tickets
for tho supper will be 50c each.
Death Claims
Mrs. Bowness
Mr. H. W. Stevens, assistant district engineer at Golden, is busily engaged in cheeking up the final location survey nnd construction quantities for the seven and a half miles
between Glenogle and Leanchoil in
the Golden-Yoho Park highway, now
remaining to be built. Tenders for
this work will be called for very
shape,  performed a none too easy
role admirably.
Many  Musical   Hits
The musical numbers were all
catchy, that making the greatest hit i
being that of Dr. Budd (C. Staples),
All Dressed Up and No Place to!
Go." "Come Along," by Miss Drummond, 11a Slye, Stewart Black and
Austin McDonald, was also well received. "Carrissima," the song by
Mrs, Marsden, was loudly applauded.
The Tale of the Mermaid," sung by
Miss Thelma Pelkey, made a great
hit. "My Tango Queen," the char-
acteric song of the Spanish dance,
was ably taken by Mrs. Stuart Mcintosh. The dancing of Lola (Miss
Higgins)    captivated   the   audience.
Mention should be made also to
the apache dance done by Miss Higgins and Ray Beech, which would be
difficult to excell.
Among the many interesting numbers was the dance by the sailor-
cttes. It was very cleverly executed,
and the young ladies taking part are
to be complimented as also is Mrs.
Van Braam, whose pupils they are.
The day previous to the presentation of "The Beauty Shop" there
were some fears as to whether it
would be possible to stage the play
on account of the physical condition
of Mr. Chester Staples, Mr. Staples,
who was suffering from a bad cold,
had to go to the hospital, where everything possible was done to brine; him
round to a condition so thnt he could
appear, nnd it was only nt his own:
personal risk thnt he appeared on
Thursday evening, nnd although it
wns evident that he was suffering
from n bad cold, all were pleased to
know thnt he was oble to be out.
When it Is known that the part of
Dr. Budd, which Mr. Staples took,
called for the memorizing of no less
thnii thirty pages of closely typewritten pages and that ho appears
almost continuously through the play
it can be understood how important
his part was.

Death laid its hand heavily on the
city on Thursday or this week in the
early morning hours, and removed
one of its most prominent figures in
the person of Mrs. Hazel L. Bowness,
wife of Mr. A. C. Bowness. While
t was known that she hail not been
enjoying the best of health for some
time past, not even the members of
her family suspected that the end
was liable to come with such swiftness. Mr. and Mrs. Bowness had recently taken a trip to California
primarily in the interests of Mrs.
Bowness' health, and on the journey
bnck she hnd been taken ill, which
seemed to be the first indication of
uny serious trouble, which was later
diagnosed as nn affection of the heart.
She had been in the hospital for n
short time recently, and had recovered sufficiently to leave, but went back
n week ago, when it wus seen thnt
her heart was affected. Everything
possible was done at the hospital to
minister to the patient, but so sudden
was the call of the dread visitant
that not even the night before her
death was it though there was any
likelihood of the end coming. Just
before five o'elock thnt morning the
patient wakened ufter what seemed
a good night's rest, and called for
some water. A few minutes later it
was seen thut deuth wus ut hand, und
Mr. Bowness was hastily summoned.
before Mr. Bowness could reach her

for a short time, she had expired,
Ere stimulants could be hnd to

The late Mrs. Bowness had resided in the city for the past twenty
year. Her marriage took place in
the late summer of 1906 at Boston,
Mass., after which she came to Cranbrook. She wns horn in Kensington,
rvinci Edward Island on November
15th, 1882, being thus in her forty-
fourth year. In her long residence
here she had naturally formed many
strong friendships, particularly

On Monday of this week, lacrosse,
Canada's national game, got a real
start in Crunbrook with two junior
teams clashing sticks. The captains
of the teams were Jack Dixon and
Henry Godderis. Dixon' team got
away to a good start in the first
quarter, when they scored on a goal
shot by Allan Moore. In tht second
quarter( Dixon's team scored two
more goals made by Calvin McBurney
and Birthel Benton. In ihe third

game, Art Wallace, the referee, called the players to the middle of the
field nnd told them that ho was not
going to stand for any rough play
or abusive talk, and it is evident that
the players heeded him well, for the
game was entirely free from any incidents of thut kind. There was one

tools and it handcar, nnd meeting the
accused asked him as to the whereabouts of them. The latter apparently took umbrage at the question,

Crunbrook is in for another musical treat this week for Bill Watson.
the king of said blade rifofitH f»M|Ws

After Mr. Watson is through with hi-
interesting demonstration, it is a
sure thing that Cranbrook will have
another orchestra composed entirely
of the carpenters, who, after using
their saws nil day will turn ther;'
into  musical  instruments  at  night
Mr. Watson is an unusual enter-
tainer, playing novelty music. He
hns perfected the art of saw music
to a stage thut defies competition.
His fume hns won for him a place
on ull of the large vaudeville circuits
and the best broudcasting Stations
throughout the United States and
Playing two saws tied together
for two tones with the same bow is
one of Mr. Watson's many features.
It will pay you to hear him at Delany & Sinclair's all this week. Mr.
Watson has just come from Trail,
Nelson and other western points,
where he has been playing in the
local theatres und  hardware  stores.

Change Nature
of Program
G.W.V.A.  Making  Arrangements For Their Empire
Day Celebration
Preliminary plans for the annual
Empire Day Celebration sponsored by
the G.W.V.A. have already been considered and it has now been decided to make some departures from
the style of the programs of the past
few years. This .war, it bus been
decided to hoki the entire celebration
at the fair grounds, instead of dividing it between the city bull grounds
and the fair grounds. The usual
parade will be held in the morning,
of decorated floats, cars, bicycles etc.
but this your it is most likely thnt
the parade will commence at some
point In the city, and proceed to the
fair grounds, passing in front of the
grand stand, ami the judging will ba
done there.
It is also intended to have all the
games take place there, such as base-
bull, football, lacrosse, etc., whatever
Is decided on for that day, as well
ns the usual athletic sports in between, and the finals of the school
events will also be held on the fair
grounds Hi some point in the Empire
Day program.
There will also be the crowning of
the .May Queen, which proved such a
pretty event last year, with the Maypole dance, and there will nlso be
some juvenile Scotch dancers, and
Scotch music, as last year. Those
special features are now in process
of being arranged, along with other
features. The most striking feature
of the program this year, compared
with previous years, will be the absence of the horse racing program.
It is fel( that there is not sufficient
support for this kind of an attraction
to warrant the continuance of tbe
big prize list, this being the item
that consumed most of the prize
money put up for the day in the
past. This will leave more scope for
adequate awards in the other events,
and while there will be muny who
will regret to see the horse racing
disappear from the program, it has
to be admitted that there do not seem
to be the horses in the district any
more to ensure the keen races that
were forthcoming at one time, and
of late years the bulk of the entries
in these classes have been from the

Rotary  Evening   Meeting
On Monday evening of this week
the quarterly evening meeting of the
Cranbrook Rotary Club took place
at the Y.M.C.A. when a very profitable time was spent listening to nd-
drcsses by three of the members on
subjects of interest. W. if. Wilson
spoke on club activities, J. F. Kc ;tt
on boys' work, while W. M. Harris
dealt with the matter of community
work. These meetings arc suggested by the International body to take
I place four times a year, when fuili-j
Jjeets such us these nre taken up. At
the next meeting of the club the
1 new officers will lie elected and plans
made for the big itotnry convention
which is to take place litis year at
Victoria on April VI.
Below is given the standing of
the bowling tournament which has
been taking place for the past few
weeks at the City Bowling Alley and
those of the Y.M.C.A. On account
of the many attractions last week,
pecial games which were supposed
to have been played were postponed
until this week. .Starting last week
the teams which had been competing
were divided Into two classes A. and
B, the lower and upper four as it
were of the eight competing teams.
These teams are r,o\v engaged in a
series of games with one another, the
first and second prizes to be awarded
to the leaders in each class. On Tuesday evening last an interesting game
was played between the K.P.'s and
the Beehives, in which the K.P.'s
were victorious and in which Meb
Dallas distinguished himself securing the record score for the alleys,
241 pins, and an average score of
20.5 pins for three frames. The lut-
ter were secured on the "Y" alleys.
Much interest was token in the game
and the finals which will probably be
concluded In two weeks are being
looked forward to with much interest.

The eighth annual Kamloops Bull
Sale will offer the greatest quality
selection of beef animals in its history. Owing to the scarcity of good
bulls in Western Canada it has been
most difficult to secure the required
listings. Having made every effort
possible to obtuin the outside requirements from the prairie provinces, and only obtaining twelve
Shorthorns from Alberta, und twelve
Aberdeen Angus from Brandon,
Man., it was considered necessary
to go farther afield. There are now
being shipped thirty Shorthorn bulla
from Ontario nnd also forty-six head
of well bred Herefords from Iowa,
U.S.A. Included in the Iowa shipment are some first class Hereford
herd benders. The reputation of the
outside contributors as Canadian
breeders and importers guarantee the
quality of these entries.

be still more justly styled "the British soldiers' battle." It was from
first to lust, from its unexpected
opening at early dawn, through all
its changing episodes in the hours before noon and until midday brought
the crisis through attack nnd counter-attack, offence und defence, onslaught und recoil, one of the finest
feat of arms accomplished by British
troops, one of the elliefest glories of
our long nnd eventful military annals.
Many British battles have been
won aguinst great odds, but none
have shown more inflexible, uncon-
queruble   tenacity  than   Inkermann.
Our backs were to the wall; had
we been defeated at Inkermann our
army might have been swept into

of the enemy single-handed. When thirty-seven Turks were frozen stiff,

the guns lost by the Turks that the | of a column of weak company charg-
tore up great stones nnd hurled them
at the foe; a few of the gunners
fought on with the rammers nnd
sponges, even with fists. Men so
eager for the conflict had oflicers as
willing to lead them; there was no
hesitation, no waiting to re-form;
any broken body gathered round any
commander, all were ready to do
anything but retire. "What shall I
do?" asked Colonel Egerton nt tbe
head of his 200 men, when pitted
against unknown numbers. "Fire u
volley and charge 1" at once answered the brigadier; und his aide-de-
camp, young Hugh Clifford, sprang
to the front to be in with the first
of them. Genera: retmefathor, at
the end of five hours' fighting when
he lost more thun half bis small
force, did not abate his confidence
one jot. If Lord Raglan would only

he would finish the battle out of

Ized what had happened and iL.' il t-

ferred by telephone to a member of ..he

This player was noted for his sense of
humor and ruled that Z must continue

be trumps. Truly a piost remarkable
situation and a truly (tumorous solution.
The trick bidder is with us once agai'p

costly experiment!

and 13 bid two no-trump, Z and A
passed and Y now decided that it was
a good time for a trick bid. He figured
that if he bid three hearts, his opponents would probably pass and that
f.tme woidd be impossible. On the other
land, if he bid'three clubs, he would
tirobably get doubled, and then if he
■id three hearts, his opponents would
also double thut and thus give him
uame if he made the bid. For those

t-d three hearts and all passed. A had
the opening lead and here's where the
trick bid acted as a boomerang for A
decided that he would lead the ace of
clubs because of his partner's double
of three clubs. His natural opening irrespective of the three clubs'double was
the ace of spades so that the only effect
of V's trick bid was to indicate to his
opponents the paly lead that would defeat the three heart bid, The club lead

Interesting than the bidding and the
player who can obtain the maximum

is much more important than the play
but the lutter is more show) and therefore more admired.
One of the surest ways to win trfi ks

have to guess which card to let go Hid
as usual with guesses, they guess wrong
more often than right. On some hands,

that is, forced to discard winning ranis.

worked havoc among the crowded
shipping. Numbers of transports
with precious cargoes were wrecked
and went down with all on board,
and the warlike stores, warm clothing, guernseys, great coats, long
boots, medicines, surgical instru

was also lost, so was another carrying hay, sufficient to last for twenty
days. Rather odd to recall that the

Florence Nightingale's Work
Writing on November 28th, the
Queen says to her uncle of Belgium;
"Since I wrote we have received all
the details of the bloody but glorious
action of Inkermann; 60,000 Russians defeated by 8,000 English and
0000 French is almost a miracle.
The Russians lost 15,000. They behaved with the greatest barbarity;
many of our poor officers who were
only slightly wounded were brutally
butchered on the ground. Several
lived long enough to say this." The
tragic helpless mess of the government is one of tho saddest pages in
British history. Private effort was
made to relieve the condition of tbe
soldiers. Now came to the front
"the Lady With tho Lamp," Miss
Florence Nightingale, and her lady
nurses, who arrived at Scutare and
with unstinted devotion revolutionized the pest-houses, miscalled hospitals. All these terrible things have
frequent cases of grim humor. A
Highland soldier very sick enduring
so many privations concluded the end
had come nnd that his native glen
would be seen no more. He sent for
his beloved commander, who did not
hesitate to come to the couch of the
soldier. "Oh, Sir Colin, I'm going to
dee." "Pamit, then, dee like a man|"
Sir Colin knew his devoted soldier
was not as far near "deeing" as he
Sebastapol  Ends  the War
The siege of Sebastapol now began in dead earnest. St, Armaud
was replaced by a strong, stern soldier, Pelessier. Raglan, the warmhearted, brave old soldier, died. Pelessier, standing by his bedside, cried
like a child. "Talk not of grief until you see the tears of warlike men."
In every matter affecting the well-
being of his troops, Sir Colin set the
example of activity and earnestness.
To facilitate the cooking of the men's
meals, he obtained through the good
offices of the Turkish commander,
some large coppers from Constantinople, which proved un inestimable
boon. At the same time he kept a
wutchful eye on the commisariat issues; and when the fuek hitherto
procurable ran short, he took measures to obtain a supply from that
department. It was clear the Em-
porer of the French imbibed the ambition to follow in the steps of his
uncle. Pelessier rather resented his
interference. Louis Napoleon showed the luck of stability. He evidently wished to conclude the war. The
fall of Sebastapol to him was the
conclusion of hostilities. The bombardment of Sebastapol was begun
October 17th, 1854, and after a
fierce siege it was abandoned by the
Russians on September 8th, 1855.
The fortifications were destroyed.
By the Treaty of Paris, 1850, Russia
undertook not to restore the defences. In 1870 Sebastapol was made
i naval arsenal, and in 1890 a third
lass fort. Three names figure prominently during the war—the Duke
of Cambridge, Lord Raglan and Sir
Colin Campbell.
Darker events are now closing
around. The Russian emissaries
stirred up the Sepoy rebellion. American newspapers were very sympathetic with Russia during the war.
The news of the downfall of Sebastapol so paralyzed the Boston press
that It took three days to recover
from the shock before the event was

T^inety thousand employees received a NOW Year
greeting, which hummed over the wires and
buzzed over the air across twenty thousand miles and
three continents, from E. W. Beatty, president and
chairman of the Canadian Pacific Railways. The
message was as follows:
VTo All Officers and Employees:
' "fn sending on behalf of tho Company my best
wishes for the New year, i desire to congratulate
both officers and men on the high standard of efficiency they have maintained during the year, as
evinced by many communications from those who
have used Canadian Pacific Services, and as further
proved by financial returns for a year which has
been fraught with considerable and unexpected problems. Such work well done has helped to maintain
and ensure the general prosperity of the Country
whose interests we all feel it our chief privilege to
serve. During the coming year we should all, in our
various offices, when opportunity occurs, pay special
•zonsiderution to the fostering of good feeling and of
sympathetic understanding between the various
peoples and interests throughout the Dominion, and
thus help to conserve the spirit of national unity so
necessary to the general welfare. For such duty we
are particularly well equipped, as members of an
organization stretching from Atlantic to Pacific and
in close contact with all classes of the community.

Several Wardnerites were the recipients on Tuesday la^t of the "Good
Luck" letters; which have been travelling through this district lately.
The idea of the letters was originated some years ago by an American
soldier, and the chain of letters is
expected to pass around the world
three times. The person who receives a letter is asked to make nine
copies and mail it to out of town
friends, and as a result, good luck
is said to come to them on the ninth
day following. As most of those
who received the good luck letters in
town on Tuesday last carried out instructions to the letter, quite a bunch
of luck should hit Wardner about
Friday of this week.

made a very game attempt to regain
his feet, bun was unable to do so before he was counted "out" and Olson proclaimed the winner by a
knock-out. Whilst the bout was
rather slmrt, it was certainly interesting while it lasted, both men putting all they knew into the light ami
taking whatever punishment came
their way like good sports. The
main bout was preceded by three
preliminaries, two boxing and one
wrestling. These three bouts were
enjoyed by the fans. A very enjoyable dance followed, the music being

The next wrestling match to be
held in Yahk will take place at the
Mill Hall, on March 86th. This
match will bring together Charlie Olson and Nels Jepson, although these
two have meet twice before, on each

Nevertheless, they were the two
toughest matches ever seen iu this
part of the country, and Olson is convinced that on his third attempt he
can beat .Jepson. This match is
creating great interest in Yahk, as
no matter who wins, the fans are assured of seeing a real hard fought,

FOR the first time in many years, it would appear
that there is a good prospect of the city getting the roads within its limits put into something
better than average condition. It has seemed to
some that a heavy investment has been made in road
machinery, but it is safe to say that it will not take
long for the lessened wear and tear on ears to mure
than repay this outlay. Added to which will be the
goodwill arising from the favorable comments of
those from a distance on finding the city streets
in such a condition as to make driving around something of a pleasure,
The next problem to be tackled Is a comprehensive scheme of sidewalk repairs and replacements,
A good many miles are to be given attention, it is
understood, in the big program laid out for this
year under the by-law recently passed, and it cannot be put into effect too soon to suit the users of
some of the sidewalks.
A correspondent writing recently to the Toronto
Globe put very succinctly the attitude of many
ordinary thinking people, on the present political
stalemate at Ottawa. Unhappily there is every indication that the remnant of the Progressive party,
whose support the government must command lo
continue holding the. reins of power, intends to make
that support the quid pro quo in a bargain, which,
however the Lil>eral party may dislike to see
through, leaves them pretty well in the position
where they have to give what is asked of them.
The correspondent to the Globe says:
To the Editor of The Globe: As there are a
number of people writing to The Globe condemning its
attitude in the lust election, in justice to you I must say
your position has been proved correct. You took the
position that Premier King's senate reform was only a
makeshift. This has been proved absolutely correct by
the fact thnt after the election und iu the speech from
the throne there was no mention of senate reform.
This ahowa conclusively that it was only a gesture to try
and influence the electors.
There is no question that a large majority of tbe
electors are in favor of some measure of senate reform.
Mr. King's method wus nothing more nor less than the
same method used by all premiers for years und was no
attempt to chungu the situation at all.
It must be plainly apparent to Liberals that they
have been given poor leadership in the past four years.
In 1921 they were given by fur the largest group in the
house, and, if given any kind of good leadership there in
no reason in the world why they could not have been
reasonably sure of increasing their members in the house
in 192&. The reason they did not is quite apparent, as
the electors got tired of the constant changes. What was
wanted was not so much a lower or higher tariff, but
one which they could reasonably exjiect would be the
same for some time so they could make plans accordingly.
Take railway and lake freight rates. How could
any one plan ahead with the constant changes which they
were subjected to? The Peterson contract was terrible,
when even their own hand-picked committee could not
swallow it. That it was bad was plainly apparent when
government speakers did not even mention it in the last
After the position that Mr. King took in Richmond
IM11 lie should have resigned when defeated. He could
have resigned and been iu a strong position, as the other
side would have had to do the worrying. That he was
defeated wus plainly apparent by the clippings from
British nnd American pupers ufter the election. It Is
always easy to get lawyers to write long opinions for or
against anything, but the fact remains that the government asked the country to endorse its four years of government, and nobody, by the wildest stretch of the
imagination, could lake the result us an endorsement.
The position of the government papers that £he
government could not resign as there was nobody able
to carry on was a joke. This is the first time anybody
ever heard of a defeuted government having to worry
about whether the other side would be able to carry on.
IF you think publishing a newspaper is an independent profession, remember that the results of
a newspaper's efforts are placed squarely before its
readers and in a larger sense before the world.
There i* nothing a newspaper can hide. Its work
is an open buuk. It is here in black and white for
your approval. Few other lines of business must of
necessity show themselves—their every step iu the
process of service—as must ihe newspaper. Count
ten before criticizing one.
cannot be said that the government has formu-
1 laied any great financial policy that will lead to
retrenchment in national expenditures, judging by a
comparison of the main estimates recently introduced into the House at Ottawa. There is a reduction provided for of about $3,000,000, which may be
a considerable sum in itself, but in this case represents a saving of only one per cent on the entire
main bttdgel of proposed expenditures for the coming fiscal  war.
'torn Our Exchanges
Politically Canada is in sore straits. Without
group allegiance neither of the old line parties can function. With group allegiance it is a case of buy. sell and
dicker. Mr. Forke nt the moment is playing the part
of Warwick, and while we are all udmiration for the
Laird of Pipestone at the same time it is an unhealthy
condition which we are obliged to face.
We must extract ourselves somehow and the only
method possible is another general election. Until such
time we will be governed by a small group, in no way
representative of the country ns a whole. Imagine if
you can the sorry position of either Mr. King or Mr.
Melghen going ubout hat in hand jockeying, dickering,
wire pulling for tbe support of a dozen or two members.
01' course tin- Progressives ulong with the two Labor
members nml tbe "independents" will lay a heavy hand
upon ihe administration. They boss the job and they
know it, none better. Hy all means let us get back to
the two historic parties, neither of which are by no
means perfect, but either is better than the political
tangle   iu   which   we   now   find   ourselves.
Governments cannot successfully function on the
buy and sell principle and this is exactly the position of
the House of Commons at this moment.
The fifteenth parliament should have a short life,
be it ever so merry. Here is to its early death and
better luck next time.—Saturday Night.
m$ Were Postmen in Old Ragusa
Continued from page 1
whom  the unexpected news of her
passing comes as a rude shock.
She is survived, in uddition to her
husband, by three children, Warren,
now attending school at Portland,
Ore., and Pauline and Glen, who are
attending school here. There is also
one sister, Mrs. A. Hum, residing in
this city, while another sister and
three brothers are living in Winnipeg.
The sister, Miss May Whitehead, and
possibly one of the brothers, is
pected here for the funeral. Mr.
Arthur Bowness, residing in San
Francisco, and with whom Mr. nnd
Mrs. Bowness visited while recently
in California, is a step-son of the latter.
Mrs. Bowness had been connected
with many women's organizations In
the city, in ull of which she put forth
much effort to ensure for them the
fullest measure of success. Her
home was opened for meetings of the
societies with which she wus connected, and her characteristic attitude in
regard to the bodies which enjoyed
her support waa to work for them
to the utmost of her ability, never
sparing any personal effort. During
the war she was very energetic in
supporting the work of the I.O.D.E.
and the Red Cross for patriotic purposes, and more recently she had
been much interested in the formation of the branch of the Canadian
League of Native Daughters last
year, and also of the Cranbrook
Temple, Pythian Sisters, of which
she held at the time of her demise,
the office of Most Excellent Chief.
Mrs. Bowness had also been an active member of the Cranbrook Women's Conservative Study Club.
The funeral is to take place on
Sunday afternoon next from the
Presbyterian Church, at 2.30, nnd it
is understood that the Pythian Sisters will take a part in these last
rites, to do honor to the memory of
the late head of their order.
Friends unite in extending to Mr,
Bowness and family every sympathy
in the timt> of their sudden bereavement. On them the severe loss falls
most heavily, but there are many who
share their grief in a lesser degree,
and whose expressions of genuine
sorrow come from the severance of
n long and genuine friendship.
On April 20th next tho anniversary of the installation of the Pythian Temple Lodge, Cranbrook, Mrs.
Bowness was to have been presented
with a jewel as the first past chief.
She was the originator of the idea
of the Sunshine Club in connection
with the Pyhtian Sisters, and with
others was very active in getting it
under way. It is pleasing to note
that it was not left until after she
had passed away for her kindness and
benevolence to be recognized, and it
is recalled that at a social event of
the K. P.'s and the Pythian Sisters
held about three months ago, several
of the members paid eloquent tribute to her for the work she was
doing along these lines, most of
which she tried to keep from becoming known.
Clock tUld CdttulU HuUSI RlfUM,
years   ago,   the
"" f of Ragusa,
Seven hundred
pigeons of the Free City _
in Duhnatia, were postmen. They
went across all the seas in boats,
travelled with all the caravans, and
knew all the routes of the air which
brought them back to Ragusa.
Like the sailors of Ragusa, they
were known In all the ports of the
world; as a protection, they were
made citizens of the Free City of
Ragusa. Any person molesting or
insulting a pigeon was therefore
guilty of offense against the state,
■nd waa brought before the tribunal.
Homes were built for these pigeons
In the city walls, and the streets and
root topi were theirs. Every man
•bo wund at tho «lty gats* was
obliged to offer as tribute from his
native town two pigeons. These lived
in wooden cages labeled with the
names of their homes, and gossiped
with the other pigeons until their turn
came to carry out a letter. In this
way, Ragusa enlarged its postal
But the centuries rolled by. Ragusa
lost its freedom. Venice usurped its
powers on the seas. nuttjeslnjjs
steamed up and down the Adriatic.
With the other citizens, the pigeons
lost their rights and were forced to
associate with the sea nulls from
Lacroma, un island to the north,
sometimes suffering the Indignity of
begging grain from the birds with
whom in tho days ol their exclusive
' Bpleiulour, they would not associate.
j Today, the port of Gravosa, Rag-
lusa'fl harbor, is crowded with ships
bearing thu new flatz of Jugo-Slaviu.

France, the Canadian Paeltic steamship which next yenr will add Cattaro
! and Gravosa potts on its annual
Mediterranean cruise, wilt have a
ehuiue to scatter crumbs to the
thousands of cooing pigeons still

to its beauty. Tbe white, eity, "Bride

Cranbrook, B.C.   -   -   Phone 42 Thursday, March 18th, 1926
The following paper was given by you ure putting up pears and then
Mrs. Rothwell, of Wardner, at u re-j peaches, I would not only advise
cent meeting of the Cranbrook und, washing the kettle thoroughly, also
knives and ladle or spoons, but after
washing I think it wise to put in a
ijuart of cold water in the keltic with
'/,-teuspoonful of ammonia, let it
come to n boil und then wusli again.
This thoroughly takes away all odour,
or taste of the fruit you hnve been
canning, we will say pears. With this
cleansing you may be sure your
peaches will have no otlire flavor
but their own, This docs nol, apply
so much to fruit as pickles.
Aluminum  Pans Seem Best
Third,   1 have done preserving in
muny kinds nf vessels. In my ymiiiK
days it wus the old brass preserving
kettle, and at that time we thought
we could not preserve in anything
else. The next was the iron kettle
with (lie enamel lining Ulld this was
ulso a success, but hard to clean, at
least we thought so then, as wc hud
none of the clounsing powders lhat
there are today. Then came the
aluminum kettle, which to my mind,
is best of all, and my reason for
thinking so is because tho heat is
hUnking so is because the heat is
evenly distributed in every purt of
the kettle—they are very easily cleaned, and they arc light, while the other
kinds were heavy und hard to handle.
Now as to other kinds of equipment
thut you will find useful, ull aluminum utensils, a jar-filler, a small.
ladle, large spoon, or I prefer a wooden spoon if I have one, boiler racks
for sterilizing, or a steam conker, if
you have   one. |
Fourth. Lots of hot water on I
hand as you will need it for the keep-1
ing up of syrups, sterilizing nnd in
fact 101 other things, but have the
supply for if you run ont it sometimes puts you in a bud boat.
As to Utensils.
Fifth. Jars and their treatment.
As a sample of what I think and what
I have found successful in the treatment of jars. I am now speaking of
new goods—first thoroughly wash
and leave them in hot water until
you are ready to fill, then fill them
with fruit first, now pour in the
syrup or juice until your jar is overflowing. This is for full pack. If
you prefer more juice and less fruit
do not quite fill with fruit and then
add the syrup or juice until overflowing. You will find this method
will give very good results.
Sixth,    Knives and spoons. In the
District Women"s Institute on March
3rd. At the solicitation of some
members of the Institute, who heard
the paper given, und who deemed
it well worthy of reproduction. The
pnper is given in full herewith:
In presenting my paper on home
cunning and preserving, I hope that
you will ot think me too critical, as
really, my only object in presenting
this paper is for the benefit of those
of you who huve not had the opportunity of doing the work thut I was
compelled lo do, when I wus u much
younger woman, having been
brought up on a large Ontario farm,
und belonging to an age that is fast
passing nwuy, when it would huve
Ihi>ii thought almost u crime to buy
any nf tlu; products thut Ore now
found on the shelves of every grocery
store. These products were, in my
girlhood days, entirely put up in the
home. Not iu my home alone, but in
every home iu the country. And ob
you can well imagine there wns u
good deal of competition among the
girls and young women to see who
could turn out the nicest products.
There is a good many things to be
considered in connection with 'piy
subject. First of ull, be sure thut
everything is ready, nnd avoid running over to Mrs. Brown's for u few
cloves in the middle of your work;
second, cleanliness; third, equipment;
fourth, lots of hot water on hand;
fifth, jars and their treatment;
sixth, knives and spoons used; seventh, fruit and sugar, retaining of
color und flavor.
Now we are ready und I will try
nnd deal with each item in a manner thut I hope you will all understand and after my paper is finished
I will gladly answer any question
that may be put to me if it is in my
power to do so.
Be Well Prepared
First be sure everything is ready,
by thut I meon have everything that
is required for the different kinds
of fruit and the different ways of
putting them up. For instance, if
you wish to ginger your pears, see
to it that you have the root ginger,
or if you wish to cinnamon the same,
be sure that the stick cinnimon is on
Second, be sure that all appliances
are clean. Do not infer that I think
anyone would try to put up fruit
in a kettle thnt was not clean, but li peeling of   your  peaches  or  pear
do wish to imrcss upon you that if ■ never use u steel knife.    The best
a silver fruit knife or I believe
aluminum knives for this purpose
can be obtained. The same pertains
to spoons wherecver used in connection with fruit of any kind.
What  Varieties  to  Use.
Seventh. Fruits to use, sugar, retaining color, flavor, etc. In cunning pears my first choice ia the
Bartlett, but if you cannot get them
good results can be had with the
Flemish Beauty if a little on tin green
side, and any person who in fond of
u cinnimon flavor can have it. by
forcing a small spring of stick cinnimon in the stem end of the pears. To
ginger your pears, but them in
slices about quarter of an inch thick,
leave the core in and cook with the
.pears as much root ginger as you
think will flavor -one small piece to
the jar is plenty—and to make them
BtlU better add the juice of one lemon
while cooking, slice the rind very thin
and divide it equally among your jars,
one lemon will be enough for one
dozen jars.
Regarding peaches, Glbertai are my
first choice. In facl I Insist on having this kind if al all obtainable,
For some reason ideas have gone
abroad that peaches cannot be successfully canned with the pit, left in
the fruit, but I can assure you this
is wrong, us the very best results
can be obtained by cooking the fruit
whole, and I believe the flavor is
better than by halving or slicing.
Apricots, can also be canned whole
or pickled the same, but to get the
best results with this fruit halve them,
add the sugar and let them stand
overnight to draw their own juice,
anil then cook, do not add any water.
For canning fruit you will find it
best to have your fruit not too ripe,
und all fruits that are over-ripe can
be used for conserves, For small
fruits and berries you all have seen
receipts in your papers how to handle
them and most of them are good, but
large fruits must be treated in the
syrup to get the best flavor und
color. In canning pears use a heavier syrup than in canning peaches,
ns the pear is a softer fruit, and the
heavier syrup helps to harden them.
If the peaches are cooked in a heavy
syrup, it has fi tendency to toughen
them. If you wish a heavier syrup,
make it separate, and never forget
to fill your pais to overflowing.
Cook p.aches or pears until you
can pierce them with a toothpick,
then put them in jars, fill with syrup.
Do not screw your tops tight, and
never use an old rubber ring, no mutter how good it looks, l'ut in your
sterilizer anil cook for half an hour,
then take them out, and screw your
tops tight and leave them in a moderate temiwrature to cool—an extra
table in the kitchen is very Useful
for this work.
! Uo not make too much syrup al
any one time, as if cooked too long it
will spoil the color of your fruit, better make a little at a lime and often.
Marmalades  and Jellies
In making jellies or marmalades
; have your fruit a little on the green
side and you will have the best results, and you will do well to choose
'a nice bright day fur the putting up
of these products, but you rhould
■ have no difficulty in this province,
jas I have found, I think due to at-
moBpheric conditions, that jelly and
! marmalade ure very easily made here.
; I might say that I never use any
|of the so called helps in the putting
. up of my fruits—sugar and fruit are
the only ingredients.
| The cherry is a fruit that needs
'a little different handling. If you
have a pittcr you are all right, but
'if you must pit by hand the work is
; tedious and the fruit is apt to become   dark.    I    usually   sprinkle   a
• mall  amount of sugur on  cherries
| us I go ulong. Then I boil the pits
in cleur water a few minutes (about
fifteen) and then make the syrup
of the water strained from them. I
cook the clurries a few minutes in
a weak syrup und then put in jars,
and add more sugar to the syrup before filling the jars ready for sterilizing, then cook as usual about half
nn hour. This method prevents the
acid forming that is so apt to do with
i 1 don't use more than half a pound
of sugar to the pound of fruit und
1 even less will do for cherries.
i All fruits that are not peeled 1
wash in very cold water, strawbei-
iies, before hulling and drain in a
colu nder.

Girls just must curl and wave bobbed hair to appear their prettiest,
but constant curling and waving
burn and dry the luster vitality and
very life from the hair.
To offset these bad efTects, just
get a 35-cent bottle of delightful, refreshing "Danderine" at any drug
store or toilet counter and just see
for yourself how quickly it revives
dry, brittle, lifeless und fading hair.
"Danderine" is u dependable tonic
and will do wonders for any girl's
hair. It nourishes, stimulates and
strengthens each single huir, bringing back that youthful gleam, glint
and vigorous luxuriance. Fulling
hair stops und dandruff disappears.

Bob Wilson, Jim Fowler and Caro
line Dale, whom both men love, are
attending little Bob Fowler's birthday
party when Jane Gordon presents
herself. Jim introduces Jane to Caro
line ns "Bob's girl." A few days be
fore, he had seen Jane and Wilsor
together on a railroad siding, It is
a trying situation for Bob, who is uncertain how he can explain the altua-
tion to Caroline. He wishes Jam
hadn't appeared. He had thought he
was through With her forever.
CHAPTER VI11—Continued
June—and here! It was the final
blow. He could not raise his eyes
to look at Caroline, but he felt that
she had relaxed into her chair like
a stricken reed. In all his life Bob
hnd never experienced such a deadly desire to commit murder us he
did while he listened, in dull stupe
ficution, to Jim's naive acceptance
and greeting of Jane us something
to be taken as a matter of fact,
"You're Bob's girl—I remember
you—we knew you'd come although
that sly rascal pretended you wouldn't!"
Jane was in the room now, saying
nothing in her bewildered attempt
to get her bearings ufter this totully
unexpected sort of welcome. Jim
set her suitcase down in the hallway,
as Bob, gripping the table, drew
himself erect on his numb legs. The
consciousness of Caroline's presence
burned into the buck of his head;
he wished that he could spure her
this ordeal, and felt for her sympathy of u divine sort that one might
feel for nn angel trapped in hell,
June came straight to him, smiling
archly—"You see I've come back
and  found you, Bob, dear,"
Caroline suddenly went into the
kitchen, on the pretence of un errand.
Bob, striving lo gain the energy
necessary for the elfort, finally introduced Jim to Jane, without having himself replied to Jane's first
"This is—Miss Gordon, Jim!"
When Caroline returned n few
moments later Bob again know without looking ut her the state of her
emotions so bravely hidden behind
her pleasant expression; he felt the
hotness of quickly dried tears in her
eyes, the fever in her cheeks, und the
slender figure held proudly and quietly erect, while the heave nnd full of
her bosom was held in restraint ut
the risk of a bursting heurt.
This is Miss Gordon, Bob's girl!"
said Jim, introducing the women, who
bowed politely to one another in a
clash of instincts that caused Caroline's eyes to narrow and droop and
brought a hard grin of understanding
to June's thin lips.
Jim's enthusiasm because the party had worked out so ideally in accordance with his plans—Bob had
his girl, nnd he had his girl—knew
no bounds. He talked and he laugh
ed and he fussed, ull oblivious to the
tension uround him so well wus it
conceuled by those vitally affected,
June had been quite dumbfounded
ut her reception, but the sharp edges
of her particular plunc in the worh
had given her keen eyes und nose
for woodpile niggers; so she became
profusely pleusant, warmly sitting
down und joining in the party nt
Jim's invitation, without knowing
or caring what it was all about.
"You just come in time to help
me," said Jim to Jane with u knowing aside wink at Bob, "for Caroline
hud just taken pity on Bob in his
lonesomeness and wns going to de-
sort me and move over to your place,
when  you  rang!"
June fingered her place card
thoughtfully, then looking up under
her eyes across at Caroline, she quoted from it,
'"Bob's best girl'—question mark!
So you were going to sit in the place
marked for Bob's best girl? Bob,
turning to him, "Were you glud or
sorry tluq ■ came?" she tormented,
"Hey, don't I blow the candles out
now?" Bobby demanded of the group
at large. He felt that he had been
eating in quiet neglect long enough.
Caroline gently slid the cuke close
to Bobby's place. "Blow them,
dear, and wish one each!"
Bobby, proud and excited, puffed
up his cheeks with more gusto than
wind, and blew out the first candle.
"That's for Duddy Bob's best
Jane beamed hypocritically upon
Bobby and rolled her eyes at Jim.
A second candle expired fitfully
under an uneven blast from Bobby's
"That's for Duddy Bob!"
Bob smiled wanly upon the child.
Jane glared suspiciously at Bob—
was this his baby? The relationships ut this purty were quite confusing to her, thrown down in it as she
wus out of hand and without any
foreknowledge of what was what, and
who wus who—except Bob. She had
not listened attentively to the introductions; she had merely entered into the swim until she could get the
feel of the tide, and make her own

was saying, as the flame of the third

first name of the lovely lady who
had filled in so much of his life's
broken background of late, as the
fourth candle died under a close and
frenzied series of short whiffs.
One burning candle remained, and
Jane waited curiously as a hush fell
upon her tnble companions. Bobby
waited a little while, to regain his
breath and compose himself; gone
the spirit of playfulness and mis-
chicvousnuss, and in its place a soft
understanding unwonted in one so
young. He turned his large eyes
slowly from Caroline to Jim, first,
then blew out the lust candle.
"That's for Momsie!" he snid
In the midst of the hallowed Bi-
lence that ensued, June's voice seem-
l curiously resonant   and   out   of
place, like a cash register in a church,
she  said,  frowning to  Caroline,
'Oh, I thought you were his mother!"
Instead of breuking the tension,
this stupid comment increased it.
Bob again took enough physical in
terest in mutters to nudge Jane
warningly.       Caroline,    embarassed
I resentful, stared coolly at Jane;
while Jim renched down the table
across Bobby's towhead und patted
Caroline's head gently, then told
Jane with a smile:
'Caroline is only a very dear
friend—tu yet."
Another dunging and jangling of
the doorbell broke into and dispelled
the uneasy savor created by Jane's
indiscretion. To Bob and Caroline,
over and above the others, it came
us u blast of additional fear. Their
eyes involuntarily met across the
table in the instant while the iron
echoes of the gong still vibrated within the room; their glances bore a
sudden mutual commiseration for
fraught ncrve.s and tortured minds.
What other blow wns Pute about to
crack at him, Bob wondered bitterly
as he pushed back his chair and went
into the hall, glud of even u momentary escape of whatever portent.
A cullhoy from headquarters foi-'
lowed Bob into the lighted room, and
while Bob was signing for the message, fidgetted from one foot to the
other, and ogled the birthday cako
with yeaming, that Caroline, noticing
him, could not ignore. When he departed a moment later a sizable and
tasty chunk was disappearing into hia
wide mouth.
"It's an order," quoted Bob from
the message, "for me to take out the
westbound Limited Mail tonight, in
place of Morse, who is sick."
Bob's other troubles were forgotten for the time being in the proud
and thrilling flush of professional
responsibility thut came over him;
at last to be at the throttle of the
Limited, the pride of the Trnnsrock-
ian and the fastest and most powerful locomotive in the history of American rnilroadingl Jim, rushing to
him, clasped his hand:
"We'll tuke her out together tonight, old boy—it's the thing we've
always dreamt of doing!"
Caroline, her heartsick constraint
bested in thut moment by u posses*
sive pride in Bob, came to him and
gave her hand.
"Congratulations, Bob!" she said,
with quiet sincerity.
It wus a moment too spontaneous
und genuine for Jane to catch the
spirit of it, and she remained seated
at the table, glancing up between
bites of cake and sneering ut Bob.
"Shouldn't think anyone like you,
Bob, would go into spasms over t>
mensly little railroad job—"
Bob's glare warned Jane to go no
further; while the surprised looks
Caroline and Jim turned upon her
made her squirm uncomfortably and
return full interest to her cake,
"Why, Bob/' said Jim in quick
concern a moment later, "the Limited Mail has always been your ambition and now you look as though
you don't care a darn!"
Bob felt himself brightening again
under the interest and admiration of
Caroline and Jim.
"This strikes me as a perfect ending for the happiest day we've hud
since you came to Crater City," Jim
continued. "Bobby's birthday—all
friends together," Jim touched Caro
line's hand caressingly, "and now you
and I go out on the same run—"
"And me, too, Daddy Jim!"
struck up Bobby, hastily downing his
last bit of cake and running from
the table to stand between Jim and
Bob. "You promised me that on my
birthday you'd take me on the train
with you!"
"Yee-e-s-s!" admitted Jim dubiously, "but—oh, well—ull right—we
will all go on the Limited, except
the girls, and it's too bad they can't
come also!"
Jim looked inquiringly at Jane,
now, then ut Bob, and asked:
"Has Miss Gordon made any arrangements for putting up tonight?"
Jane saved Bob the trouble of referring to her. "No!" she snapped,
"and I can't say I wns stuck on the
only hotel I saw downtown in this
Jim looked to Caroline for help,
"Won't you please see if Mrs.
O'Leary can make room for Bob's
Caroline's low-voiced politeness
masked the underlying armed-camp
air of hostility that was intermixed
with the gnawing ache of her troubled heart.
"I know thut Mrs. O'Leary hasn't
a room to spare, but Miss Gordon
is certainly welcome to spend the
night with me!"
Bob suddenly realized what the
vibrant intonation in Caroline's voice
meant; she was extending this hospitality for his sake, nnd knowing
the effort it cost her. the courage it
equired, Bob admired and loved
Caroline more than ever. Harboring
one who to all intents and purposes
was "his other woman," when her
own lips still burned from his kisses
of the day before, though the divine
fire of the giving had been transformed into an enduring fire of hell.
Of such fibre was Caroline made!—
and Bob choked with a helpless desire to pour out his sou), his story,
his devotion to her.
A whisper from Jane recalled him
to the unpleasant unreality of the
situation. Caroline had taken Bobby off to get him ready for the high
adventure of a trip with his Daddies,
und Jim had slipped into the kitchen,
in his miscarrying kindness, to give
Bob und June un opportunity tu be

Anderson and his department have
ftr the past six months been trying
to clear up a lot of petty thieving

definite clue was given them, when a
local lady recognized an umbrella in
the possession of a boy, who was also
carrying a sack of bottles. When she

these had been taken. The police

Word was received in the city this
morning that John Major, a resident of Natal, B.C., had committed
suicide by shooting himself In the
head with a shot gun. Further particulars were not forthcoming, but
the matter is being investigated by
the coroner.
Choosing the subject of his remarks from the chapter of John, "If
our hearts condemn us," Rev. B. C.
Freeman gave a most interesting
discourse in the Uinted Church on
Sunday evening. The speaker endeavored to prove the statement
given in the context by following
through the character of David Scott
in the book entitled "The Slave Ship,"
alluding to the fact that un incident
in the story showed thut iu England
and Scotland, less than two hundred
years ago, white men were sold into
slavery. The speaker felt that we
were going up und up and not retrograding as some would huve us think.
He showed as in the case of Scott
thnt expediency often compels, and
blinds the eyes und hardens the heart,
and all are apt to fall to the easy
philosophy which presents itself.
Still, as the story shows, through the
guiding power of our conscience,
God asserts himself in our lives and
can steer us back to spiritual life and
freedom. Mr*. F. M. MacPherson
