Col. Ogflvie H.M'oiriiizcN Justice of Our Claim nml has Recommended tliat a Battalion be Authorized at Once.

British Columbia, lias considerably

tin* pro&poota now are very bright for
the formation <>r a battalion from the
Kootenays. Tho offer of lOsst Kootenny to moboltie the 107th Hit.i for
Overseas Borvioe wob turned down by
the Dept. at Ottawa on the ground that
it Is tho policy of the militia department to keep inllltia units for homo defence. Thero wns considerable feeling- over tbo refusal ns it whs felt
that this district should receive some
recognition of Its splendid record In
resulting, and tlmt when the cry wan

manned and oHlccrcd.
Afler going into the Hitnation fully
ut Pernio and Cranhrook Col. Oj-Jlvie
has recognised Um claims of this district to consideration, and has recommended that a battalion be authorised
by lho Dept. at Ottawa. If Col. OgH-
vle's recommendation is accepted we
may look for prompt action In the
matter, Recruiting locally is almost
at it standstill but If a battalion Is
raised from this district tlioro are
many who will enlist at the Ilrst opportunity.

Invermere, B. C.—The annual meeting of the Windermere District Board
of Trade was held recently and the
business for the past year came under
review. It was found that the Board
has lost sixteen of its members who
hove left this part tt- ]oln the overseas contingents in ttio Great War.
Not any business of special importance
was passed beyond pressing tho Government to consider the further continuance of the construction of tbe
Banff-Windermere automobile road
and asking if they did not feel capable
of carrying It through that arrangements be made to transfer the right
of way to the Dominion Government
for incorporation Into the National
park system. Several motions of patriotism in regard to the conduct of the
war were also passed.
The officers of the previous year
were also re-elected with thc change
in Secretaryship, Mr. a. G. Cuthbert

The death occurred In Cranbrook
on Sunday last of Margaret Park, he-
loved wife of Andrew Clark, uged (12
years and 8 mouths. News of the death
of her son Thomas of the Royal Engineers, who was killed in uctlon In
Franco on Dec. 19th at the age of 28
years, was the Indirect cause of Mrs.
Clark's demise.
Tlie deceased was born In Scotland,
and with her husband came to Cran-
brook six years ago from Blantyre,
Lanarkshire. Scotland. She was married to Andrew Clara in Scotland
forty-four years ago, and of a family
of four daughters and seven sons the
first break was the recent death of
Thomas Clark on t*ie Held of battle.
The surviving members of the family
nre: Andrew, Calgary; John, New
Zealand; Jim, Corbin, B. O.J George,
with tho Argyle and Scottish Highlanders at the front; Alex, of the 50th
at Calgary; Archie, at home; Lizzie
(Mrs. John Muir) Vancouver; Agnes,
(Mrs. A. Blair) Kingsgate; .Janet (.Mrs.
• A. P. Ci:v-\ Montrose. Scot'and, and

For Those Who Accept Rev. Mr. |
Simpson's Kxplanation of
Death   and   the
1 The Monday night service of the
: eight day mission being conducted In
1 Christ Church was attended by a congregation which filled the ehurch to
capacity. Hev. Mr. Simpson took for
his text "The Life after Death, or
! What Really Happens When we Die."
Mr. Simpson's enunciation of his
subject and his explanation of his
own belief were sulllciently new and
startling to at least ghr bis hearers
I plenty of food for thought. His belief
1 as explained by himself savors much
! of the spiritualistic hut possession of
j these same views undoubtedly would
i rob death of any of the dread or terror
It may hold.
I In brief Mr. Simpson believes that
there is no such thing as death and
the resurrection in the commonly accepted meaning of those words. He
believes that the spirits of the departed aro with us now, know what
we are doing, our desires, etc., and
that we can communicate with them
through our thoughts. When our physical body dies his belief is that the
spirit continues conscious, continues
to move nbout, know and understand
with the advantage of not being tied
down by the physical body, able to
transport itself thousands of miles in
the twinkling of an eye. In his opinion
there Is no transition period in which
tho soul sleeps until the resurrection day. He believes also that a
Christian may live two lives at the
same time, this life in tlie visible
world, and a spiritual life in the Invisible world, holding communion with ;
tlie spirits.
Mr.  Simpson  took  as the basis of
his remarks the sermon of the apostle
Paul to Agrlppa, ona put forward an
entirely new Interpretation of the resurrection.    He   divided   the  various
ideas of the life after death into three
heads, first: lhat of the atheist and
agnostic ll'at there is no future life, ■
when we die we are dead and death
is the end of everything; second, the.
belief most of us have been brought up
to, the Jewish belief, not the Christ-
Ian belief according to Mr. Simpson,
tliat when we die our bndy is put fn j
the ground and our spirits go on liv- .
ing without a body mitJl the time of j
the resurrection In the future when ]
body and soul will be united and enabled to meet those we love again. In
other words, that when we die we fall
asleep.   This was St. Paul's belief in j
the-first part of bin life;  third,   St.;
Paul's belief in the second part of Ills '
life was in a "God wnlch raiseth tho
dead", and this is the real Christian
belief, that Iffe after (tenth is not the
beginning of a new life but Is a continuance of the life which Is going on
The spenker went on to Illustrate
the beauty of his belief, and the fallacy ot the idea that the old physical
body could ever again clothe the spirit. ',
Death In his opinion is something to
look forward to and welcome Its ar-
Mr. Simpson also give a much   too
brief hut intensely interesting remin- j
(sconce of his experience on tho 111-
fated Lusltanla, and his marvellous es-
Cape from a watery grave.   He said he
never felt the presence of God    so j
closely as between the time tbe ship
was torpedoed and his rescue In   a |
boat.    His  comfort  and  sustenance j
during the trying three hours waiting
to be picked up by n steamer was
prayer, nnd he urged the congregation
to  cultivate the habit of  prayer on
every occasion.

To tho Members of the Cranbrook
Board of Trade:—

ter to organize or institute any  new
movements of benefit to the District.
Owing to the enormous crop on the
Prairie the mills In the Mountains
were aide to ship a very considerable
amount of lumber during the months
of August, September, October and
November and tlie outlook for the demand for tlie coming year is good
with prospects of steady work for
those In the county. It would look, I
however, as If there would be a short-
age of labour during the year.
The returns given by the Mountain I
Lumbermen's Association for the cut j

were as follows:
to mn tliat in a small community of

the merchants should do all they can

communication between the mnrchaiits
and farmers has been under review by
tlie Lethbridge Board of Trade for the
past two years, and the reports of
tlieir President are to the effect that
the results have been productive of
beneficial results. Following tho lines

The Eight Day Mission being conducted in Crnnbrook by Hev. Mr. Simpson of Rossland, simultaneously with
every Anglican parish in the Dominion, has been productive of splendid
results if we may judge by the attendance and Interest taken therein.
The mission opened Saturday evening and continues for eight days, closing witli special !*ervices on Sunday.
The servfees hf_m .nil been well attended, nnd at both services on Sunday last numbers were turned away
for lack of accommodation. Rev. Mr.

Lillian, the sevon-year-old daughter
of Mr. and MrB. Jos. Jackson, had the
misfortune to break her right arm on
Saturday. She was skipping with
some ipbiymates and tripped and fell.
It was not thought at lirst that auy

when the X-Ray was used soveral
days after thst tho break was discovered.

Knox Church was crowded to capacity Sunday afternoon last, the occasion beiug a monster rally of all thc
pupils from the Anglican, Baptist,
Methodist and Presbyterian Sunday
Schools of tho city. The success of
the gathering was due to the local
W.C.T.U. who had charge of tho entire
proceedings. Mrs. McNabb occupied
tho chair. This meeting inaugurates
a series of temperance lessons In the
Sunday Schools, and the entire program was very strong in temperance
A splendid address was given by
Hev. Mr. Simpson of Hossland, who is
conducting thc eight day mission here
In the Anglican Church. Rev. Mr.
Thomson gave an Interesting blackboard talk, Miss Kdith McDonald, silver medallist, gave as-a recitation
"The Prodigal's Soliloquy", and Miss
Bradwln gave a temperance reading.
A children's choir led In the singing
of a number of temperance songs.
A very pleasant change Is being
made In the character of the service at
The Methodist Church ou Sunday
evening next when in place of the
usual preaching tho entire service will
be taken up by congregational and
choral music. Tho choir has been
preparing a ilrst class program for
several weeks past and doubtless wlll
do themselves credit as well as provide something of an entertaining and
inspiring character for the congregation.
Many of the Items are by request
which goes to show that the program
will not be a thing in which a choir
only can revel but one in which the
congregation can find expression for
their own feelings of praise and worship.
In place of the usual song service
prior to the regular service, the organist, Prof. C. F. Nidd, will give an
organ recital commencing at seven
I think this matter should receive
the attention of tho meeting as I feel
satisfied that you are all aware of the
enormous asset this would bo in connection with the tourist tralllc through
out tho country.
During the year we arranged with
the Fisheries Department for 5000 fry
to be placed In'Munroe and 10,000 fry
in Premier Lakes all of which should
be of advantage to tlio country ln the
course of a year or so.
The report was, on motion, accepted
and thc hearty thanks of the Board extended to Mr. Christie.
Mr. Bowness reported for tho membership committee that on his canvass for ncw memhers he had been
refused by only two business men of
the city. The membership for this
year ls 71 as complied with 61 last
year. Tho audltor'a report shows that
the fbanccs are in good shape with a
balance on hand In thu bank.
After considerable discussion on thu
matter of the completion of tho BanfT-
Wlndermore road the following resolution was adopted on motion of Mr. A.
E. Watts and Mr. Elmer Staplea.
To the Public Works:—That where
as this Government Is keeping so many
interned prisoners In Idleness, this
hoard urges the Government of B.C.
to consider tho udvtsibiltty of employing the said prisoners in the work
of completing tho Canadian highway
from Banff to Windermere. There
only remains about 25 miles of this
road- to complete one of the finest
highways in the continent at a very
small cost. We wish to call the attention of the Government to the
fact that there are a large number
of aliens eating their heads off at
Morrlsey alone.
Mr. Manning, Chairman of the
Roads Committee, suggested that all
complaints re the state of roads be
mado through the Board of Trade. In
every case where complaint had been
made through the Board of Trade the
Road Supt. has attended to lt promptly*
A resolution asking the Government
to extend a measure of assistance to
the Canadian Wood Distilling Co. was
also drawn up and adopted.
The next business was the election
of officers. A strong effort was made
to induce Mr. Christie to accept the
Presidency for another year, lt being
felt that he was the right man for
the position and, as Mr. Watts neatly
put It "Mr. Christie nas done things
wliere others have attempted." Mr,
Christie however absoluetly refused to
consent. The following Is the result
of tho election:
President, W. A. Nisbet; Vice Pros.
W. B. McFarlane; Secretary, I. Bassett
Executive—Messrs. J. M. Christie, W.

I think every effort should be made
by the Board to encourage the dairy
busfness and also the cattle raising
business. There is no question that
wo liave a country here second to
none for this purpose and while there
are some who claim the country Is
not adapted to the dairy business, I
feel that with care and proper feed*
lng this can be overcome. The coun«
try Is thc same nature aB that to the
south of us, In the State of Washington, and as you are aware that country
Is being developed from the agricultural standpoint in a satisfactory manner. A satisfactory feature which
might be mentioned is the proposed
legislation recently brought down by
thc Minister of Finance amending the
Hank Act so tliat the Banks can lend
money for the purpose of purchasing
cattle and taking chattel mortgage as
security. This has been one of the
stumbling blocks In the past and It
should be of considerable benefit to
the District In enabling the small farmer to get a few head or cattle.
The question or the establishment of
a satisfactory fireproof storage warehouse for tlie farmers of the district
to store their grain, obtaining warehouse receipts therefor on which they
coudl obtain advance from time to
time has been suggested and 1 think
this matter should also be given consideration hy the Incoming Executive,
During tiie early part of the year
the Board made every effort to obtain
the consent or the Minister of Militia
to havc Cranbrook made the Head
Quarters of the 54th Kootenay Battalion, but witiiout success. We have
also expended considerable time and
money In connection with the retaining of the recruits which have enlisted here since the 1st November and
our efforts have been successful.
In conjunction with the Wlndemere
District Board of Trade we took up
with the authorities the question ot
tho completion of tho Banff-Wlnder-
niere Road, but with no success. A
further letter from the Columbia Valley Irrigated Lands, Ltd., recently to
hand suggested that the B.C. Government Is not In n position to go on
with tho work at the present time. It
Is estimated thnt there Is still 25
miles to complete through easy country which will take about $200,000 and
we have heen urged the Importance
of taking up with tho Provincial
Government that either they Bhould
complete the road or enter into some
arrangement with the Dominion Government as would enable thtm to do

to date in Ideas, heing of a socialist
turn of mind, follows keenly the news
of the war, enjoys with a vim an argument on Woman's Suffrage—in which
ho firmly believes—, will discuss like
a philosophic theologian tho question
whether sin has its seat In tbe body
or spirit, and can tell a joke and
laugh over one with a heartiness that
would shame many a young man of
twenty. Mr. Tomay Is Indeed an ac-

of Mrs. D. W. Hurt.

Congoleum Rugs
and Rug Borders
Congoleum Ib a new and wonderful floor covering, absolutely waterproof all the
way through. A wonderful feature about Congoleum is that it lies flat and firm on the
floor without fastening and never curls or "kicks up" at the edges.
Congoleum Ib made in patterns suitable for every room in the house.
Congoleum Rugs
Congoleum Rugs are made by the same wonderful process and are fast supplanting
all other low priced rugB on the market, Grass, fibre and fabric rugs are by nature dust
collecting and unsanitary. They fade in the nm, "kick up" at the edges, and many of
them give Bcant wear for the money cxpen ded.

When you look at Congoleum Itugs be sure to see Ihe Congoleum Rug Borders,
They are exact reproductions of finely grained quartered oak, giving the effect of expensive hardwood floors at very low cost. The body fabric contains no burlap and is
