days—a most terrific rain or shells,

Every now and then a brilliant charge
by our brave bays, and more ground
gained. The weather was Inclement;
the Incessant rain had churned up the
mud of Belgium such as only Belgian
mud cud churn, and though It was
Impossible to bring up food and water,
our lads fought on with grim determination until they hud gained their
objective ond consolidated the ground
captured. It was not easy—far from
It—and many were the casualties;
with never a groan or a rogret each
man fought on until exhausted.

available Inch was taken up and more,
than six hundred were In our care.

apposition with a story of life among
Hie people in America nt today, and
with an embellishment of orchestral
music and of illustrative song heightened by theatrical effects and in surroundings to suggest a flicht in fancy
to oilier times and other place-.
The purpose of this spectacle is to
show love's struggle throughout the
means of four parallel stories: Ancient Babylon, Judoa at the time of
Christ. Mediaeval Paris end a modern
American city are the scenes of these
Such wonderful settings, It Ih said,
as were provided for tho showing of

i complete In accurate detail as to stag-
, ger the imagination. Tremendous
' battles are fought—battles such as
even today could not bu equalled in
fierceness of personal  conflict.
When the Nazarene Himself is seen
in the streets of Jerusalem there Is the
visualization, iu reverent artistry, of
an actual Saviour of mankind—often
surpassing In beauty or in effectiveness some of the world's moat famed
paintings of incidents at the time or
Christ. Then again the horrors of the
massacre of St. Bartholomew ure set
forth with the skill of a master to
effects, and ull iu surroundings that
suggest the actual period. The siege
of the walls of Babylon, and of the
city itself, with tremendous Instruments of ancient warfare to attack
the walls, and with struggling minions
falling under Hi,, blow of swords,
porlshlng by flro or going to death
in tho toppling, and falling or lofty
towers, is the uchlovomenl of one who
has done big thlngB in a big way.

To thfl Editor, Cranbrook Herald,
Dear Sir.— In view of the recent statement issued by Mr. Hoover, Chairman
of the Commission for Relief lu Belgium which points out the Imposslhll
ity at present of obtaining tho necessary shipping tonnage to forward to
Belgium the food supplies in the same
quantities as In the past, and also
draws attention to the fact that the
United suites Government huve made
arrangements to loan lo the Belgian
Government the sum of $45,000,000,
payablt to the Commission for Relief
in Belgium In six monthly instalments,
which sum will cover the cost of such
fond supplies as ran bo shipped in that
time hy the limited number of ships
available to the Commission—the Central Executive Committee of the Belgian Relief Fund In Canada finds it
unnecessary for the present, In make
appeal tn the generously disposed
people nf Canada nn the plea of tho
urgency of support in order to slave
off starvation.
The. nouds of Belgium continue how-
:or as pressing as in the pasl and
the situation may be considered as
being even more pitiable, as. through
the forced decrease in imports. Belgium will be compelled tn fall hack
on her last native resources already
so denuded. In order to maintain that
so limited ration that has been doled
out In the past It will he necessary
to encroach upon the Country's stock
of Milk Cattle which has been reserved
to maintain a supply of fresh milk fnr
the children.
In the hope, however, that the re
cent swiftly develnped shortage in the
World's shipping—the cause of this
now departure of tho Relief Work—
may unt permanently endure; iu Uio
hope that the necessary funds may he
available should any emergency nr
spoclnl occasion arise and in view of
the fact that in any event relief in
many forms will be required after the
war, tho Committee hope that nil the
generous supporters of the Fund in
tho past and all 'those who have
pledged themselves for future payments will continue to support tin*
Fund and thus continue to show their
sympathy with the people who gave
their all for the cause of Humanity.
All such donations received after tlie
15th of June will be disposed of to
tho best advantage of this stricken
people, according to thc wish that may
be expressed hy any donor or according to the actual or more prcs;-in^
needs of nny of the already organized channels of Relief Work sucli as:
"Help to the children removed from
Belgian Front"
"Queen's Fund Tor the Wounded
"Home  for  the  Belgian  Soldiers."
"Relief for Belgian Prisoners in Germany."
"Anglo Belgian Committee of the
Belgian Red Cross."
"Relief for Belgian Children suffering from tuberculosis and rickets."
"Belgian Orphan Fund."
"Belgian National Relief Fund for
War Orphans, etc."
All donations received prior to the
15th of June will be held at the disposal of the Commission for Relief in
Belgium, for thn purchase in Canada
of Canadian Produce, according to our
previous pledges.
The Central Executive Committee
will Issue in tbe immediate future n
repnrt envering the whole nf their
operations up to the lath of Juno.
Thanking you for publishing tin
above, we remain, yours truly,
