Godfrey Harrington Brown, the
genial bookkeeper with F. Parks &
Co., has received another letter from
his friend, "Shorty" Milne, who Is now
stationed at St. Martin's Plain, Shorn-
cltffe, Eng.
The letter follows:
Dear Old pal:—
I received your letter a few days
ago. 1 just don't happen to have It
here with me, so don't know whether
you asked me any questions or not,
but It Is most remarkable If you
haven't. I am on guard duty today
ovor four of our sergeants who are
awaiting trial for minor brenches of
discipline. My duty lasts 24 hours
und I will be glad when it is finished;
it is a thankless job.
I thought I would write you while
I wus In bad humor. I know you like
it. I don't know of anything of real
interest to write about just now. I
think I wrote you a few lines since I
landed here; so I don't want to repent anything, but in case I didn't
explain matters before I want to tell
you that we are camped altogether
too close to town. I don't like living
near a city. There are a number of
things against it. Life on Salisbury
Plain was morc to my liking.
I have behaved fairly well considering I received the Eye Opener O.K.
the same day I received your letter,—
another eye opener. I haven't discovered any more newspapers like the
Liar which I sent you (except it is
the Cranbrook Herald). If I do I will
send you a copy.
I might say I have had to resume
work ngaln, as we have our mos::
books straightened out. Couldn't
make the job hang out any longer.
I might also state that I refused promotion yesterday, and the S. M. got
after me today, and he insists on mo

it is pretty hard to part company.

Edgar Sainsbury sailed from Halifax
on tho Hesperean for England. Before he shook the dust of that city
from his feet he penned the following
[ lines to this paper:

Public feeling is generally, In all
cities wliere I havc recently been, absolutely against thc holding either a
Dominion or provincial elections in
those serious times, and the Idea of
sending ballots to the soldiers ln the
trenches would be grotesque If It
wcre not so pathetic.
Do those responsible really realize
what this wur Is and meanB? I asked
a prominent Conservative and pro-
election enthusiast who of his friends

Garden Truck Coming in ii.nl Good
Supply oi' Butter Assured—Small
Fruits Will Sine Situation
The Cranbrook public market has
had anything but a rose-strewn path
to travel the past six weeks. The
grind was hard, the going was harder.
The market is just now about on the
turn of the tide. The array of produce last market day was the best,for
many weeks. Butter was forward from
Wasa and otlier produce from Glenllly. Tho next few weeks should make
a great difference after the heavy ruins
of the past few days.
Once garden truck nnd small fruits
begin to come In the market will gradually get down to n proper working
basis. Mrs. Clarke of St. Mary's
Prairie, has her customers forming a
ijueue by thc time she arrives at 10.30.
Good butter can always md a ready
anlo. Once a regular supply of such
produce as handled by Mrs. Clark and
also Mrs. Hannant, from Wasa, becomes available no ono need fret as
to the future of the market.
• The representatives from the council at a meeting Saturday thought no
building could be put up tliis year
as there was much other work to be
done ln cleaning up tha city. A deputation was appointed to ask the
council to provide it covered market
for the next few months olthor by
continuing the rent of the present
building or providing the means of
renting n similar place, A market bylaw roatrlotlng the hucksters on

Possibly the worst feature or result
ot such a condition, hitherto regarded
ns a necessary evil in national af-
' fairs, Is that the example has affected
I and is reflected in every dny business.
Every one of us is now being heavily
taxed to pay thc principal and interest
' of the millions that have tints gone
into the pockets of grafters, some of
whom arc today living in luxury on
the revenue from the money thus secured.
If Sir Robert Borden has risen, and
made for himself a firm place, in tho
opinion of the business men, as ho undoubtedly has, by the strong stnnd ho
hns taken in this matter, Ills colleague, Hon. Robert Rogers, has weakened his position by his carefully-prepared speech on the reasons and necessity for a general election. Mr.
Rogers Is regarded as a man of unusual ability. He 1ms hnd the best

1 Although It required uu entire afternoon the task wus finished and that

i mother mildly objected tu her doing
something unseemly wus heard to!
say, "O you're batty." The same!
mother said, "I cannot say a word to',

though tiiere bc a fee attached. By
way of Illustration we have only to
remind you of tlie annual epidemic of
colds and minor disorders whicb are
tlie direct sequence of the Christmas

mnetally or morally.
Permit me to say a few words as to
the cure of children's teeth. We have

timely warning can bo given. The oft-1
repeuted question arises, Shall wc
teach the facts of si*x unit the origin of
life to the children'.' I do nut answer
tills with an unqualified alfirmatlve.
It is too often necessary. I wish this
were not so, for I nm old-fashioned
enough to believe In the innocence of
childhood. Certainly it is better, when
this "knowledge must come, that It
should come from mother's lips. If
the intimate relationship of which we
have spoken hus been faithfully cultivated, the innocent question, or report of something seen or heard, will
give tbe necessary warning. When that
time comes, meet it frankly, Call
things by their right names and by
all means do not lie to your child. Reward confidence with confidence and
the child will cheerfully covenant
with mother, not to discuss these
things with any but her, Two little
sisters, less than two yenrs apart as to
age, constant companions, sleeping together aud accustomed to sharing
each other's confidences; It became
necessary because nf cnntitmination at
school, to instruct the elder in these
matters. The usual pledge of secrecy was required. A year later the
younger, by an Innocent qenstton, betrayed her totul ignorance of tlie subject, thus proving her Bister's faithfulness.
Now, a word of practical advice:
Do not over-train your child, "To her
