The church was prettily decorated
with ferns and potted plants, urranged
by friends of the contracting parties.
Rev. W. K. Thomson, pastor ot the
church, read the simple yet impressive marriage ceremony, whicli made
the contracting parties man and wire.
The bride looked very charming ln
a tailor-made suit or navy blue, with
Alice blue hat, and presented a perfect
picture ol' girlish loveliness and
simplicity combined. She was attended by Miss Belle Thomson, ot Elko,
sister of tiie groom, who was also
prettily attired in a suit or blue.
Mr, Jack Hertford, traveller for the

the honors as beat man.
At the church upwards of two hundred well-wishers of tiie happy young

erton Rogers, beloved wife of Mr. G.
T. Rogers, In her 50th year of age.
Funeral took place from residence
Tuesday, May 25th, Rev. J. S.
Thompson, of Victoria, officiating.
The death of these two former residents of Cranbrook was the source
of much sorrow to the people in Vancouver and Victoria who have known
them personally or had heard of them
or their Immediate family. Unfortunately the hour of holding both funerals was the same and those who formerly lived In the Cranbrook district
were unable to attend only one or the
other of the ceremonies. Yet it was a
strange coincidence that one being a
carriage funeral and the other an automobile funeral those proceeding to
tbe grave of Miss Taylor passed tbe
slower procession of those attending
marched through the principal
streets und were cheered us they entered the Auditorium. The meeting
was held under the auspices ot the
city in a.i effort to encourage recruiting. Mr. Justice Macdonald be-
tlie principal speaker of tho oven-

her well wlll ever forget her, as her   *

tual hours, a memory tliat is one ot  \
the most glorious tributes that can be
paid to the dead.   Mr. Rogers hns the

brought matters to a more serious
state thun heretofore. German diplomacy i« falling In this us it has
failed In every other move attempted
Blnco the war broke out, The fact of
tho matter is tlmt no other nation
can sympathize with tbe German viewpoint and Germany cannot understand tbo human motives which actuate other nations. Germany represents autocracy, a government whicli
the people must serve, while nations
have governments which must servo
tbo people. Whin Germany speaks it
is the voice of autocracy void ot
humanity nml void of sympathy with
democracy, In Franco, England or
thu United Sttttos the word of the government la the sentiment of the individual of that government expressed
publicly. Between these two there is
a wiih broach, the breach which lias

Sir Richard McBrldo, premier of

England for some tlmo now endeavoring to interest financiers in certain
gilt-edged provincial loans be Is anxious to float to keep tho ship of state
in tlie province to the west of us on

opinion of the mon with money to
lend that British Columbia, to use ;•
vulgarism, bus bitten ofT more than
Bbe run conveniently chew.
This is indeed 11 sad state of affair.;, aud we can readily understand
Sir Richard feeling much depressed
thereat But vexation will not avail
anything under these circumstances
If tlie London - money lenders have
reached the conclusion (rightly or
wrongly matters not) that 11. C, loan-
are not desirable at ihis Juncture, Blr
Richard might as well pack bis milt*

Fur reasons that liave not yet been

been moving so smoothly as was Its
wont in past years, and there are
signs in plenty of rocks abend. Can
It be that to the wctt of us, ns bas

Teaching by Contrast
What is the chaff to the wheat?—
alcrem. B8.28,
Ever and anon ln scripture Ih the
higher placed iu contrast to tlte lower,
und by comparison some of the most
momentous truths are laid bare. A
hunter rushes from the Held Taint with
hunger. Ills younger brother has a
tempting meal prepared. "Give me to
eat," the elder cries. "If you give
mo your birthright," the younger
answers. "You may have it," the hungry man said, and ever since Esau
has been held up to scorn as the man
who chose the lower,
In Isa. 55 we liave a capital Illustration of teaching by contrast. The
prophet asks: "Wherefore do yo spend
money for that which is not bread?
and your labor for that which satls-
(letli not?" He goes on to beseech
them to cat that which is good, to
come unto God, to hear and tlieir soul
should live. Down the chapter we are
told of God's and man's ways, God's
thoughts and man's, und nre shown
that tho Divine are immeasurably
higher. The man wbo used most frequently the method of teaching by
contrast was Solomon. It was apparently a passion with him to contrast
values, and many of his epigrammatic
saying have passed into current
speech.    Here are a few:
"Wisdom is more precious than
"The path of the Just Is as tbe shining light that shlneth more and more
unto the perfect day. The path ot
the wicked is darkness.
"Treasures of wickedness profit
nothing; but righteousness delivereth
from death.
Better a dinner of herbs where love
is, than a stalled ox with hatred therewith.
A good name Is to be chosen rather
than great riches."
But It was left neither to Islah nor
to Solomon alone to tench by contrast. Jesus sought to show, by that
method, how advantageous, nay, how
Infinitely better it was to grasp
and cling to tlie higher. I remind you
of some of His sayings.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth .... but lay
up for yourselves treasures In heaven.
"Not one sparrow shall fall to the
ground without your Father. Fear ye
not therefore, ye are of more value
than many sparrows.
"He thnt ilndeth his life shall lose
it; and hc tbat losetli his life shall find
"What shall it profit a man If he
shall gain the whole world and lose
his own soul? Or what shall a man
give in exchange for his soul?"
Thus Christ, too, would lift our
minds to true values. After each
quotation I could aptly hnve used the
metaphor, "What Is the chaff to the
wheat?" or, what ls the lower to tbe
higher? There have been moments In
our lives when we have thought, If
not said .what Is the lower to the
higher? What Is gain with loss of
honor? What arc pleasures in sin
compared to peace in Christ? What
is culture compared to, or without,
loving compassion. hrotlicrliness,
mercy? What Is hate to love? What
Is Ignorance to wisdom? What Is
strife to pence? What, is vice to virtue? what is wickedness to holiness?
Truly, Indeed, "Wlmt Is the chaff to
the wheat?"   Think on these things!
Canadians are a lighting race
Ab everyone docs know,
Tbey bravely battled for their In
Ono hundred years ago
And then lu Africa's distant land
On many a hard fought Held
They ever drove the foemnn hack
And never once did yield,
Today on Flanders bloody plain
They stand the battles shock;
The same as In the days of old
When led by gallant Brock.
The Germans aro a dastard too
But ever comes to grief,
'When they In battle moat the men
Who wear the Maple Leaf.
The German host was ten to one
The Allied Hue did sway,
Like lions, then our boys did fight
Canadians saved the day.
Amid tho deadly poison fumes
Amid the shrapnel's rain
Their deeds are writ with honor
Upon the scroll of fame.
Though many a sad, sad heart to-day
Through our Dominion wide;
While mourning for a hero lost
Yet shares the nation' pride.
United to thc Motherland
By ties no foe can sever;
And waving high the Union Jack
Shout Canada Forever.
