Pretidcnt'i Report
Members of the Caledonian Society: We have now reached our most
important meeting of the year—that
of the Second Annual General Meeting. Your most important business
is that of the election of officers for
the ensuing year.
I sincerely hope that your incoming executive officers will be wisely

the same excellent co-operation and
help that has been accorded thc directors and myself during the past

It would be out of place for me
to mention any particular individual

This Summer
Monday evening the first of what
is proposed to be regular monthly
meetings of the Cranbrook Retail
Merchants' Association was held in
the Y.M.C.A., at which there was a
good representation of the members
During'the evening many matters
of importance to the merchants were
discussed, it heing generally agreed
that the session had heen a very profitable one.
President A. D. Bridges after the
ading of the minutes of the last
regular meeting, read to the members an outline of the accomplishments of the Association for for the
past year, as well as a lengthy list
of matters which the provincial executive hoped to get through this
year. From the reading of this report the members were convinced
that the association had been the
means of gaining for them some
things which meant the saving of
many hundreds of dollars.
Among many items considered by
the meeting were the following:
A grant of $10.00 per quarter was
made to the Salvation Army from
the Association.
In the consideration of the above
matter the information was given out
by the secretary that the membership
in the association had been increased
by one over that of last year.
A letter was read from some lo
cal poultry keepers objecting to the
practice of canvassing the merchants
for orders for eggs and poultry.
thereby working a hardship on local
dealers. The matter will be taken
up with the parties interested.
Duat   Nuiiance
After a lengthy discussion of the
nuisance already existing from the
dust on Baker and other streets, during which many suggestions were advanced, the meeting finally moved
that the council be petitioned to take
immediate steps to abate the nuisance before it became worse.

Lacrosse got away to a fine start
j for the season on Thursday evening
I of last week, when an enthusiastic
'meeting was held nt the Y.M.C.A.,
attended by about sixty lacrosse fans.
, Most of them were enthusiastic players, and others were there to show
their interest in the arrangements
made for carrying on this line of
sport during the summer. From the
attendance and enthusiasm manifested it is not difficult to predict a very
successful season. In addition to the
ungsters   who   are    expecting   to
make up the teams this season, representatives  from  the service  clubs,
Amateur  Athletic   Association,   and
thers were present.
Elect  Officer*
Art Wallace took thc chair at thc
commencement of the meeting and
xplalned the purpose for which it
was called nnd organization was then
proceeded with. Officers were elect-
1 for the lacrosse Club as follows:
President Dr. A. K. Cameron
Vfce-Prea.        Rev. M. S. Blackburn"
Sec..Treas. James   MacFarlane
Dr. Cameron was also elected the
representative from the Lacrosse
rlub on. the Cranbrook Amateur
Athletic   Association.
From the number of young players
[■resent, it was possible to arrange
for at least three teams, aa last year,
these being the Tigers. Lions and
Cub-. The captains appointed for
the teams were Messrs. Art Wallace,
J. Dixon and J. MacFarlane. In addition to these teams, it is proposed to
organize the younger boys attending
public school into three teams, so that
games can be arranged for the
youngsters as well. Art Wallace has
already taken this work in hand and
will be assisted by some of the teachers.
There was some discussion as to
.he grounds on which lacrosse will be
played and while the present "status
•f the Athletic grounds in the city is
somewhat unsettled, it is stated that
•he matter will without question be
irranged to that lacrosse and other
sports will be played there this summer just a.* usual. Representatives

will be meeting some outside teams,
which would tend to still further increase interest in tht- game. A cup
has already been promised by
Beattie-Noble, Ltd., for competition
among the juveniles, ami the league
has the Native Sons' Cup, which U
still up for competition, and it is
Ikety that other prizes will be forthcoming, so that there will be lots of
ncentive for the youngsters to keep
their respective teams at the head
*f their leagues. In the meantime,
Art Wallace is bringing thc matter
of boosting and fostering lacrosse
before many of the lodges and organizations in the city and some of
these have already passed resolutions
pledging their co-operation and
promising all possible assistance to
cultivate the best brand of lacrosse
which the city has yet seen.   ,
It is well known thnt there is a
considerable nucleus of old-time la-

The financial statement of tbe
Canadian Pacific Railway issued ut
Montreal for the seven months of
1020 ending July 31st, shows the
large increase in the net profits of
$0,691,301.52 over the net profits for
the first seven months of 1925. The
gross earnings were |101,826,207.11,
os compared with $90,343,867.75 for
tbe first seven months of 1925.
Unofficial estimates prepared by
the authorities of the Department
of Commerce, Washington, estimated
that Americans visiting Canada
this year would spend approximately
$190,000,000. This estimate was intimated to be very conservative and
that it was more than likely tbat
the amount would exceed the $200,-
000,000 mark.
Announcement was made recently
over the signature of E. N. Todd,
freight traffic manager, Canadian
Pacific Railway, of the appointment
of D. A. Wanklyn as Industrial Commissioner of the Railway, with offices in Montreal. Mr. Wanklyn

Three wolf cubs were caught recently near Lake Doucelle in Northern Ontario by Arthur Beauvuis,
well-known driver of the Chateau
Frontenuc dog team at Quebec, and
will be trained by Beauvais for the

mingling the wolves with huskie
puppies for several months they will
lose some of their wolfish nature
and make an attractive addition to
the Chateau team. Beauvais states
that, while wolves have endurance,
they have not the "heart" of a
huskie dog.
Two world's swimming records were

The writer has fi
tention in the.se articles to the modem
tendency to bid a suit, rather than no-
trump, if tbe hand contains a singleton
or void suit. The matter of distribution
has become as important a point in
modern bidding as the cards themselves, and no good player bids no-
trump on high cards only. In addition
to the high cards, he must also have a
favorable distribution. Ii be hasn't, he
prefers the suit bid to no-trump. One
type of hand that always works out
better at a suit bid than no-trump ii
the one thut contains three four card
■uitii uud a singleton. The follovaog is
• good example:
Hearts—* A, 1,8, 4
Clubs— A, IC, 10,7
Diamonds — 7
Spades— A, 8, 5,4
With this hand as dealer, bid one dub
and if your partner bids one no-trump,
bid two heart*. It is a perfect example
of thc type of hand that plays better at
• buit bid than no-trump.
There is another type of hand where
the suit bid is preferable to the ao-
tnmp. In the following hand:
Hearts— A, 7
Clubs —A, K, 9
Diamonds — 10, 8
Spades — Q, 10, 7,6,5,4
tlie proper hid is one spade, not one no-
trump. Here is another example:
Hearts —K, 10,9,8,6,4
Clubs— A, K, 5
Diamonds — none
Spades —A, J, 10,7
The proirer bid is one heart, not one
no-trump. Avoid the latter bid if the
hand contains a singleton or void suit.
Here ate two hands that illustrate
anothcrprinrjpleihai should be thoroughly tmdcolund. Supiwse your partner
bid one Spade, second hand passed and
you held the following hand:
Hearts— A, K, 10,7,6
Ciulw — 10, 7, 6
Dniiwiuls — 9, 8, 4, i
Sjwdcs — A
Would yuu bid two hearts or pan? You
should bid two hearts by all means. The
hinglclon s|t,tdt* is a danger point, even
though It Is the ace. Never pass your
partner's bid when you have a singleton of his mih, uulrss you have a worthless li.ind nM id iiut i liable bid of your
The other hand is of a different type
but illusti*U-» lhe unu* prutdple. **" jp-
poee your partner bids-one heort,a
hand passes, what is yon
with tbe following band?
Hearts — 5, 4, 2
Clubs —J, 4
Diamonds — 10, (L t
Spades — A, K, 10,1,1
You should bid one spade. So i
players bid four card suits noma .
that you should not lose a chance to
show thc other major suit, even wfcfc
three little cards of yow partner's ink.
Such a holding is ao real support fav a
four card suit. With three to an honor
or four or more of your partner's aail
you should pass. The modern theory of
bidding is to give accurate information
whenever possible and these haadMM
good illustrations.

1 Some measure of relief has been
offered Alberta florists by the British Columbia government in connection with the present restrictions now
imposed on potted plants, trees,
shrubs and bulbs, which ure shipped
to points in this province by commercial greenhouses in Alberta, according to word received from Hon.
George Hoadley, minister of agriculture for Alberta.
Mr. Hoadley was successful in his
negotiations with W. H. Lyno, British Columbia inspector, in securing
a compromise with regard to whnt
was looked upon as discrimination
against Alberta and Alberta florists.
Relief   Measures
The relief which has been offered
by the British Columbin government j
through W, II, Lyne, chief inspector, I
reads as follows:
"Provided the  commercial greenhouses   iu    Alberta    are   inspected
once every three months by qualified |
Albeita government inspectors, Brit-
Ish Columbia permit   tags   will   he j
supplied to the greenhouse men who
can   present certificate*!  confirming,
.-uch inspections, and that the plants '
in the greenhouses  referred to are
free from pest or disease.    The permit tags will authorize   the   trans- i
portation company  to  deliver direct
to the consignee without further in- ,
pection of the shipments to which j
the tags were attached, the right he- j
ing reserved to cancel or refuse permit tugs to anyone   found abusing
thc use of same.
Regulation!   lhe   Same
"With   regard   to   outdoor   trees,
shrubs,   plants   or   bulbs,   imported |
into British Columbia from Alberta |
nurseries, the regulation already in ]
effect  will   be  continued,   with   the
possibility of increasing the number j
of  places  at  which  such  stock  can
be  inspected on  arrival   in   British
Columbia, in place of its having to
be sent to Vancouver.    At present, I
the  only  place  for  inspecting such

quite satisfactory. !
How  inventive genius  keeps
with  the   ever-rising   necessities   of  h"^  **•
modern industry is reflected in much   octopu
of   the   machinery  with   which   the
Nash   .Motors  plants   are   equipped.
Probably no other industry has seen
greater  advancement   in   the  design
of automatic machinery to meet
requirements   of   volume   than   has
been witnessed in the motor car in

But now this highly important task
is performed on every bearing simultaneously and with scientific accuracy that does nnt vary a hair's

of human-like machines, totally unknown a few years ago, are today
performing various operations in different departments of the
plants; they are performing these
operations quicker nnd with a degree of consistent accuracy un attain-

One of the recent and most interesting automatic machines of the industry is that in use at the Nash
factory. It is an automatic honing
machine, which accomplishes at one
time the final diamond-smooth polish
on all seven main bearings and six
connecting rod bearings. Formerly
it was necessary to polish individual-
machine  automatically stops.
Honing of the crankshaft, a prac-
e heretofore practical only in the
Nash higher priced cars, gives each bearing
on the Nash shaft a mirror-like finish, which in turn is re fleeted in the

ut McDougall Heights, Kimberley, is
not complete, it is the scene of activity in the way of athletics, the fully

Basketball is one attraction and is

been formed with teams representing

Badminton is alao in vogue and has
its share of devotees.
The boys are by no means neglected and the Scouts, to the number
of about 45, with about 50 cubs, each

Nothing remains unfinished except |

that the formal opening will take

DECADENT England, criticized as being slow
and conservative in Iter methods, has demonstrated this week that there are still some avenues
of present day endeavor in which she is yet supreme. A British built car, with a Hritish driver,
iu speed tests carried out on the Florida sands, ran
a two-mile stretch at an average speed of two hundred arid seven miles per hour, and at one time
reached a speed ten miles per hour more than that.
This is an inconceivable speed, and even if il is
beyond tlu- range of practical use just at this juncture, it leads tu interesting conjectures as lo what
the future of the motor industry will be in the
direction of speed.
Nor was it long since the achievements of Hritish airmen, in completing flights half way across
the world anil hack, heralded the fact abroad lhat
England did not seem to be very far behind the
most advanced achievements in this direction. So
long as a nation can thus keep iu the van of mechanical aud inventive practice, there seems to be
little danger of ils really going to the bow-wows,
as some calamity-howlers would lead people to believe.

TH1;. Spokesman-Review of Spokane comments
very caustically on tbe proposal of the H.C,
government lo open a liquor store in Vancouver
late in thc evenings, in order "to compete with the
bootleggers."   Obviously, says the Spokane daily,
the next step will be to open the liquor stores
twenty-four hours a day. seven days a week, since
the illicit dealer is not restrained by any such niceties as confining his nefarious business to stated
hours. The restrictions as to selling to minors
would also have to be abolished in order to meet
the bootlegger ou his own ground, and so "compete"
with him, says the American paper with scarcely-
veiled sarcasm.

IT is realized today that the farmers of Western
Canada can dn more for the agricultural development of their country through immigration
than any other factor. Various agencies exist for
the securing of the new citizen aud bringing them
to the country. It is only thc people of the community to which they come that can assure that
their feel are firmly planted there, that they develop
contentedly, and remain. A cordial reception goes
a long way in effective transplantation. Intelligent
teaching by established farmers and others develops
the raw newcomer into a thorough-going Canadian
citizen. Pair treatment in employment makes it
reasonably sure lie will want to remain iu the district. Assistance In establishment turns him into a
producer in the community into which he was introduced. Encouragement in his early efforts will
hasten his progress to independence, where he is
the community's and the country's hest asset.
THE prohibition association of this province has
embarked on au ambitious program which is explained by its slogan, "A bone-dry Hritish Columbia
by 1929." It is issuing a new publication which is
given the catchy title nf "Dry-By-'Ninc," and iu its
foreword justifying the appearance of the new
journal, it states that contrary to the declaration of
the brewing interests, that no further contributions
will be made for protection and assurance. "Dry-
By-'Ninc" will offer both to the people of thc province. The new paper is appealing frankly to the
public at large whether wet, dry or slightly damp.

Mr. McKenzie was asked to assist as
much as possible, and due notice will
be given by way of ad vert foments to

stockmen in this respect.
Another resolution dealt with the
practice said to be prevalent, of the
indiscriminate sale of meat and hides
to butchers and others. The Stock
Breeders' Association will write to
the registrar of brands nt Victoria
and request the enforcement of the
requirements by which the vendor of
meat in this wuy is compelled to furnish particulars as to where it was
obtained, and ulso the uppointment
of a locul official for the inspection
of the hides of any animals so sold
before shipment.
During the evening, Air. Worden
gave a report ofi the recent meeting
of the B.C. Stock Breeders' Association at Kamloops, which he recently
attended, and of the formation of
the new selling organization whicli
will be run co-operatively. He was
much impressed by the unanimity
displayed, and thc determination to
work out the problems of the stoek-
men in an amicable way.
Many ranchers, representing almost every part of the Crunbrook
district, took part in the discussions
during thc evening, voicing their

which were being considered. Stock'

"Great regret will be felt in the
community," says the Kamloops Sentinel in a tecent issue, "by the announcement that II. F. Helmsing,
Indian agent, lias had to resign his
appointment owing to increased
health disability, brought on by war
service. As u lieutenant in the Royal
Naval Volunteer Reserve. Mr. Helmsing, who was engaged in mine sweeping, patroling and convoying, incurred such exposure from weather
that ever since he has been in poor
health, steadily getting worse. Since
he cnme to Kamloops in 11*24, all his
energies were required for his work,
and be has been unuble to take part
in any social work.
"Mr, Helmsing became Indian
agent in the East Kootenays nt Fort
Steele in 1921, succeeding R. I.. T.
Galbraith, who was superannuated
after 31 years' service; the headquarters were later removed to Cranbrook. Later he succeeded W. C.
Dallin here. The agency here in.
eludes 103 reserves and 2300 Indians.
Mr. Helmsing has been very successful in his rrk here, and to leave his
duties at this time is u greut wrench
to him. The agency extends from
Salmon Arm to three miles cast of
Lytton, four miles north of Chu Chua
nnd to Coldwater, south of Merritt.
"For two and a half years after
the war, from which he was invalided
in 1917, Mr. Helmsing lectured for
the Navy Leogue, in which work he
did  fine and thorough service.
"Mr. Helmsing and liis family expect to remove to Vancouver about
the second week in April, his duties
concluding on March 31. No successor has been appointed yet. Mr3.
Helmsing will also be greatly missed;
as a pianoforte player she holds a
niche all her owri in this community,
and her artistic services have always
been most willingly offered to charity
and other entertainments."
Mr. and Mrs. Helmsing made many
friends at Cranbrook during their
stay here, who will unite in expressing the hope that Mr. Helmsing's
health will soon be restored.

Europe Inspired It-Dietrich Designed It
Studebaker Built It-Paris Approves It
Now AU Cranbrook can See It!
AY the 20th International Motcv Exhibi-
, tion at the Grand Palais in Paris,
Europe saw the Erskine Six for the first time.
Over night it was acclaimed the hit of the
I'aris Show!
The press called it the "Clou du Salon!" The
man in the street and the aian of affairs—designers of cars and designers of the Paris mode
— everybody declared the Erskine Six to be
the outstanding triumph of the exhibition—excelling Europe in its own type of car. The
Parisian triumph was repeated at the Olympia
Show in London.
Priced Low
People over there want modishness and insist
upon upkeep economy.  Motorists over here
are weljoming both as a new order in ar ownership. The Erskine Six was built for both
markets, for it sells for less than $1300 at the
Walkerville, Ontario, factory.
But don't look for any signs of economy in
its appearance—btctiut Dietrich dtsipitdit!
And don't be afraid that economy has impaired
the quality—tetesu StuMtktr built il!
The Ertkine Six ia a newcomer at a car, but
it's built and backed by an old-timer in the in-
dustry and hu been perfected by extreme road
testi on Studtbtker't million dollar proving
ground!   _
It is only 5 feet V/i inches in height—yet it
affords ample clearance for Madame's chapeau.
Wherever you look at this low-swung, wide-
windowed, full-vision steel body, you will find
visible evidence of the creative genius which
is Dietrich!
Outside, the close-hauled beauty of the Paris
mode—and inside, thc relaxation and comforts
of home!
And what a car to get about in!
Easy to Handle
Nimble enough to turn in an 18-foot radius
—powerful enough to take an 11 % grade without shifting gears—fast enough to skim over
the highway at 60 miles per hour —and smart
enough to be an ornament as well as an automobile.

evidence tlvui he was born in the year

Windermere, Ths was in 1882.
While since time was prior to tbat

or "A Night With Dickens," which

plumed that the proceeds from the

The Fernie School Board is more
or less worried by the number of repeaters in the advanced grades of
the public school, and* in the high
school there. This is largely attributed to tbe children who .are allowed
to attend whist drives, dances, picture shows, etc. The pupils are so
tired out when they go to school that
it is practically impossible to grasp
the problems that come before them.
The Board has sent out a letter to
the parents hoping that they will
make an effort to assist the teachers
in this matter. They point out that
the standard *of education now required in the public and high schools
is so high that it is necessary for the
pupils in the high school nnd in the
upper grades of the public school to
do a considerable amount of home
work; and if this is not done, in
many cases a pupil has to repeat and
the ambition to succeed is either lost
or  very  considerably  weakened.
The school trustees, in the interests of the children and the ratepayers of Fernie, therefore strongly
urge the parents not to allow their
children of school age to attend public dances and whist drives at any
time, and to restrict attendance at
picture shows to Fridny and Saturday

Tha Rebellion of  1886 and the
Following Results
There followed the crushing of the
rebellion u rising spirit of sectarianism and sectionalism. Mercler, a
lending spirit in the Province of Que*
bee, in lSHli. had flashed like a meteor ncross tlie political horizon. The
moment was opportune, Louis Riel

leadership of the rebellion, despite
the half-hearted protests from some
sections df the country that he had

For General
Admission Purposes
For Sale at
Great meetings had been held in
Montreal addressed by Mercier nnd
Laurier, and the rising spirit of sectarianism end sectionalism seemed to
be fanned into a flame. The French
members of the Dominion Govren-
ment—Chapleau, Sir Hector Lange-
vin and Sir Adolph Caron—were uig-
ed to resign and the first-named was
formally offered the leadership of
what was to be called "Le Parti N'a-
toinale." He refused in ringing
terms. Mercier accepted with equal
eloquence and the battle was one between parties nnd leaders alike.
Leads  to Changes
An important change in the situation as compared with past politicnl
conflicts was very apparent. Hitherto the Roman Catholic Church hud
been in antagonism to or antagonized, the principles of Liberalism in the
province. Now a general split in the
Conservative party seemed inevitable
from the fact of Mercier winning
into the ranks of his new "National
Partv," the Ultramontes, or extreme
ecclesiastical element. This was
Mercier with an extreme religious and
racial party going under the name of
Liberal, or "Le Parti Nationale."
Meanwhile Riel, the evil genius of all
thia disturbance, had suffered for his
crimes upon the scaffold at Regina.
During 1886 the Provincial elections took place and Mr. Mercier
flung himself into the fray with firy
eloquence and force. He battered at
the hitherto invulnerable walls of
local Conservativism with all the power of a position which included appeals to racial prejudice and religious
feeling, and, in the end, won the day.
Mr. Tallion did not immediately resign, but on the meeting of the assembly was defeated, and Mercier became Prime Minister on January 27,
1887. It was a striking victory for
a man who had never held office except for a few months in the July
ministry of 1879 and who had faced
the eloquent Chapleau and all the organized power of Quebec Conservatism.    The  meteor now for a time
stayed [tl course, and the public wondered what would follow a conflict
which had resulted in the overthrow
of old parties, the breaking of old
political und ecclesiastical ties, the
raising of the evil spirits of race an-
tagonisn. and religious prejudice.
Far-Reaching   Reiultt
.Meanwhile, the Riel question had
precipitated a very important crisis
in Dominion affairs. As the tide of
Mercierlsm in Quebec rose higher and
higher it looked as if the Conserva-
tlve party was to be submerged in
ii')inin:on as well as provincial matters. Even the magnetic personality
of Sir John A. Macdonald appeared
to hnve lost its influence in this
wild war of words over thc death of
;t weak and worthless rebel. lie wna
freely denounced by French-Canadian speakers as "the enemy of our
nationality, and was burned, in effigy, nt Montreal, whilst Chapleau,
Langevin. nnd Caron were bracketed
together in public resolutions as
"traitors to the country." Riel had
come to be regarded almost as a hero,
and one of the political martyrs of his
race. The province of Quebec was
to bc stirred up by Mr. Blake against
those who had committed whnt 30,-
OMi people on the Champ de Mars in
Montreal declared to be "an act of
inhumanity and cruelty unworthy of
a civilized nation."
Harsb Opinion!
The flames of sectarian nnd sectional passion became so pronounced
that even Sir John Macdonuld, hopeful and optimistic ns he naturally
was, feared his government would
hardly weather the storm. "Le
Monde," a French Conservative paper, said nfter the execution of Riel,
and in doing so voiced the general
sentiment of the press of Quebec,
thut "Fanacticism wants a victim." The "Toronto Mail," the
old-time Conservative organ, but now
verging upon direct opposition to the
Government, threw fuel on the rising
flames by declaring that "the conquest will have to be fought over
again" and that the result would do
away with the privileges of 1763.
The "Orange Sentinel," in reply to
the bitter articles of its Quebec contemporaries, declared before the
execution that if the government
dared not hang the rebel the day
would not he far distant when "the
call to arms will again resound
throughout the Dominion."

The United Church is the last, but
not the least, of the local churches
to take its turn in reporting its ac-1
tlvitles    in    this    column.    One    is'
tempted to give a bird's-eye view of
the   world-wide   work   of   Canada's,
largest Protestant church, with her;
industrial,  medical,  educational  and j
evangelistic missions in Africa, India, I
China,  Japan   und   South   America.'
] Suffice to say that all the widespread
j work is progressing favorably, under
I the guidance of God, and with the
) enthusiastic support of the missionar-
I les and people who now see the wall
, of denominntionnlism breaking- down,
j The sectarian spirit is going rapidly,
and in no place so quickly as in the
foreign field, where the divisions of
our faith have been a real stumbling
I block to the success of missionary enterprise.
|     But here in Cranbrook, our church
ia carrying on mission work among
the Chinese, under the trained leadership of Rev. C. Y. Chow, Chinese
pastor.    This  work  was  opened  in
Cranbrook   many  years ago  by the
Methodist  Church, nnd ia continued
by   the   United   Church.      Regular
preaching services are held on Sundays.   Bible classes and prayer meetings, and a good Sundny school for
the  Chinese  children  testify  to  the
| excellence of the work of the local
pastor.   A few weeks ago the lantern
was . used   effectively.     The   picture
of Ben Hur was shown, and through
an   interpreter   the  message   of  the
Christ was given to an appreciative
audience which  packed  the  mission
hall.    There are a number of loyal
Christian   families  among  the  local
Chinese.     The  children  of  the  mission guve a fine exhibition of their
training lately when they assisted at
the  pugennt  given   in   the   church.
Their nction  songs were highly  appreciated.
Amid all the turmoil and fighting
in China  at present, when we  feel
that owing to past misunderstandings
and  greed,  the  pence  of the  world
is at stake, it is good to know that
some interest and kindness is being
shown by the Christian church here
in our own city, to a people who may
' yet hold the control of the world's
• civilization.    Anyone is at liberty to
' visit the work of this mission, and
, those who care to assist will be welcomed by the pastor.
The  Sunday  School
This department of our church is
one of the most successful and interesting. We have thirty teachers
and officers, and an enrollment of
two hundred and sixty-six scholars.
For the past six months the average
| attendance has been two hundred
t and twenty-three. Under the leadership of Mr. G. J. Spreull and Mr. L.
Lundy, the work has grown and de-
veloped, until at present the accomodation is taxed to capacity. There is
a high standard of teaching efficiency, a good library is well patronized.
The orchestra, under thc leadership
of Mr. J. M. Clark, has added some
new members and gives real service
to the musical part of the Sunday
school work. The influence of such
work la uncalculable, and parents can
be assured that the children, by the
faithful work of the teachers and the
general esprit* de corps of the school,
are receiving a training in the elements of the Christian faith which
will have a lasting effect upon young
Mission  Bands
Mra. G. D. Carlyle, assisted by Mies
Ivy Detail, has been doing splendid
service among thc younger children.
Forty-five boys and girls are enrolled
in the two bands. Some $160.00
was raised last year, and Christmas
hampers and parcels were sent to
hospitals and Indian schools, this being largely the work of the children
themselves. Three thousand Sunday
school papers and magazines sent
to lonely settlers was another of the
good bits of work done. A most
valuable piece of training in unselfish service is being carried on In
this department.

in honor of Miss Lena Brogan, bride-
to-be. The hall was appropriately
decorated with streamers of blue and

conspicuously placed at intervals
around the hall. The stage was very
prettily arranged, a canopy of
streamers being overhead. Tables j
for gifts were placed on the stage.,
and were tastily decorated with cut
flowers. About one hundred invited i
guests attended and showered the'
bride-to-be with all manner of beau-
tlful and useful gifts. A dainty I
lunch wus served to all, after which
the Yahk orchestra furnished music
for all those present who wished to
dance. A very enjoyable time was
had by all, and everybody joined in
wishing Miss Brogan every fellclta-l

Plans for greater and wider service
were discussed on Tuesday evening
of this week by Miss A. Fountain,
the Provincial Girls' Work Secretary,
when she addressed the combined
gioups of all the churches. It is not
easy to sum up the result of such
work, but it is of the sort which
makes for strong, intelligent, Christian womanhood. This supremely is
surely the aim of all education and
Christian effort. It is worthy of our
best support.
Boy   Scout*
Between forty and fifty boys are
in the various depaitments, including
Cubs. Scouts and Rovers. Into this
■xeellent work Mr. Martin Harris,
assisted by Murray McFarlane have
'hrown themselves with enthusiasm.
The credit of the fine showing of
this work must bc given to Mr. Harris, who for many years has labored
unceasingly with the boys of our city.
Plans are now being considered for
summer camp. It is trusted that
with the co-operation of the service
clubs, a permanent camp will soon
be established. The active assistance
of men interested in work among our
Boys is asked.
Men'*  Brotherhood
This is another of the good things
in the work of the local church, it
runs along the lines of the service
clubs, and has a membership of about
thirty. Monthly meetings for fellowship and supper are held. Help has
been given to many of the needy
families of the city, and assistance
in ull departments of the work of the
church. At the present time the
Hrotherhood is planning to join the
Beaver Brotherhood, whose aim Is
"work for boys," and whose head-
quarters ure in Fernie. The executive wilt make a trip there shortly,
to complete arrangements. Tonight
(Thursday) the Brotherhood will be
hosts to the boys of the church, and
a good time is expected, when about
a hundred "Duds and Lads'' will
make merry together.
Young   Peop|««   Society
Since its beginning last fall, this
group has kept up regular weekly
meetings, with an average attendance
of thirty-five. Religious, literary,
educational and social In its outlook,
the young folks have spent splendid
times together. As an example of
its activity, the recent concert of
Miss Amy Fleming was carried out
with success. On Monday evening
last, Mr. G. J. Spreull gave a most
interesting account of the evolution
of prison and punishment. The success of this young people's movement
has been largely due to the leadership
of Mr. F. Buck, who has spared no
pains to make these meetings helpful and educative. Next Sunday, the
young people will have charge of the
evening service, when Mr. Buck will
be the speaker. The "League of
Nations" will be the topic for the
next meeting, and the final meeting
for the year will be held in the church
on Tuesday, April 12th, when Rev.
James Evans, of Kimberley, will
speak on "The Spirit of Adventure."
-*•   +   +
The regular work of the church
has been well sustained. Attendances are good, and the spirit is optimistic and friendly. The work of
the Women's Missionary Society, the
Ladies' Aid, the Young Women's
Auxiliary, and the choirs, junior and
senior, have all played their part in
making our church one where cheerfulness abounds, where lives are being transfigured by the spirit of
Christ, and the gospel of reality and
power is known and felt. If you
doubt it, cnme and see. We will give
you a real hearty welcome.

which was hugely supported by the
town and camps nnd was greatly enjoyed by all. Mr. Lythgoe acted as

The first number was n selection by

Mr. D. Hamilton nnd Mr. Ingles. The
next number was a vocal duet by
Kathleen Kevins and John Edwards,

loudly applauded for the fine rendition of their song. The next selection on the program was a piano solo
by Mr. Edwards, which waa very
] much enjoyed and encored, this be-
l Ing followed bv a selection from the
orchestra. The C.G.l.T. girls came
next with a song, "Moonlight and
Roses," the stage being suitably set
for the occasion with rose trees in
full bloom and a moon. Mr. £. S.
Fleming favored the audience with a
recitation. Then followed a character song hy Miss Edwards and a

which he very ably rendered. Tbe

play entitled "The Doctor's Patients."
The characters were as follows: Dr.

There has been a good demand for
advertising space in the 1027 edition
of the Kootenay Telephone Lines directory whieh is now in course of
preparation at the Herald. The directory has a large circulation all
through the Kast Kootenay district
nnd advertisers at almost every point
find it a good medium for keeping
their name before the public". The
demand for space in the directory so
far has been well up to previous
yenrs and any who are desirous of
making an advertising announcement
in the new directory should communicate with the Herald at once.

Magistrate Ci. G. Henderson left
on Sunday night for Toronto on
Home Bank business. Let us hope
thnt he will stir up the 4lry bones
down there nnd see if the unlucky
depositors of that institution cannot j
get a few more dollars out of tbeir in
vestment. Collections in this town
against those who happened to owe
the defunct institution money were
rigidly enforced, mnny people being
compelled to make sacrifices to meet
their obligations, but if the cost of
liquidation is going to consume all
the money collected, the public would
like to know something about it.—
Fernie Free Press.
Rev. C. C. MeLaurin, superintendent of Baptist Missions of B.C. and
Alberta, was in the city on Sunday
last, antl conducted both the services
in the Baptist church here while Rev.
V. H. McNeill was conducting services for the day at Fernie. Mr. MeLaurin is a veteran in the work of
the denomination in the West, and
his earnest messages were listened to
with interest antl proved to be both
helpful and interesting. Mr. MeLaurin left on Monthly for Robson aud
will return the end of tho week, passing through on his way to Fernie,
Where he will conduct the services
next  Sunday.

A loss of about $500 was caused
by fire which broke out in the Kitchener Hotel, Kitchener, early on Wednesday morning of last week. The
fortunate awakening of a neighbor by
the glnre of the flames on his window,
who turned in an alarm, and the
prompt action of hotel guests and
neighbors, who formed a bucket brigade, probably averted serious loss.
It is thought the blaze originated in
the hotel basement near the electric
lighting plant. The hotel was well
filled wih guests, due to unemployment in the woods near Kitchener.
James McGovern was in charge of
the hotel, the owners, Mr. and Mrs.
B. Johnson, being on a visit to Spokane. '
The end of the week will see most
of the lumber mills in the district
running full blast again after logging
operations. A few of the bigger
mills have kept their planers going
all winter, and the mill at Wycliffe
has been running nil winter. The
C.P.R. mill nt Yahk re-opened a week
or two ago for the season, and the
Crow's Nest Pass mill at Wardner
is opening up shortly, and also the
B.C. Spruce Mills at Lumberton. A
good many men have come into the
city during the past week or so, when
the logging camps shut down, and
it is expected that these will gradually distribute themselves throughout the district according as the summer work opens up at the mills and
in   other directions.
This week n business change of
interest in the city took place when
Mr. Chas. Sang, of Lethbridge, took
over the management of the local
brancli of the Crystal Dairy, taking
the place of Mr. Howard McCosham,
who has resigned. Mr. Sang is not a
stranger to the district, having been
