The bazaar was opened by the Hector, tlie Uev. F, V, Harrison, who congratulated the ladies of thc Church
on the result of their efforts, through
whieh a large and attractive assortment of useful and ornamental articles hud been prepared.
The Herald reporter, being a.mere
man, cannot he expected to enter into
h detailed description of the items
offered for sale, but the remarks of
visitors to the hazaur ami ihe rapidity
with which purchases were being
made demonstrated the attract ive
qualities of the goods displayed.
An excellent feature ol the bazaar
was the "Hanna" .-fall. Bearing In
mind the wishes of the Food Controller nud the necessity for tlie conoerv-
titlon of sugar, the Committee decided
to eliminate the usual Candy Count61

Mr. Bruco Hrown has received the
following Interesting letter from Sergeant J. Milne:
Dear Bruce:—I don't know how
many questions you asiked me
in yonr Inst letter as I have mislaid it somewhere; but I huve u few
hours at my disposal to-day and
thought 1 would drop you a few lines
just to say that I am well and am
not looking for souvenirs as it':; an
unhealthy job out here. I have not
been up the line this time yet but expect to soon; had tlte pleasure of
visiting some of Fritz' cement cellars; they make very good dug-outs.

had Just moved into a quiet part of

canvassers, or the applications may
be mude direct to the Hunks. In order to assist in the work us much as
possible, it is hoped that the applicants will make use of the "cheque'
form attached to the application instead of tiie "undertaking to pay"
form. The canvassers do not undei

and the local committee does not handle the money, it Is quite Immaterial

A meeting of tlie Farmers Institute was held at Fort Steele yesterday and scveru! went from Crnnhrook
to assist in tlie sale of Victory Bonds.
Meetings will be held today al Wardner and at Hull River,
It is rather remarkable that up to
the present the amount of applications from outlying districts has lieen
quite lurge in proportion to the total
amount subscribed, by the Cranbroolt
District. The Committee would like
to emphasize the fact that they are
particularly anxious to get in the

i On the eighteenth of October, "Our
Day" for the Hritish Red Cross So-
i ctety, was the occasion for a supreme
effort, Ou that occasion the Windermere District was thoroughly organized and parcelled out uuder llie various heads whicli came under the directions of the various committees of
llio Canadian Red Cross Society and
the whole territory canvassed in an
energetic effort to collect funds to
aid lu this gootl cause, with the result
Unit thc sum of three hundred and
seventy dollars was netted, which a-
mount Inculdes a generous contribution from the friends residing In and
ahout tile post ollice of Spllllmnclieiic.
One Of the most ardent canvassers
for the fund, has possibly been Mrs.
T. A. Pope of Westcllffe ranch, wife
of Thomas Archdale Pope, late of Edinburgh, Scotland. Mr. Pope has already had one son who has given his
life up in tho cause of freedom and
lias a younger son who has been once
wounded and who is again buck iu the
trenches doing his bit. On this "Our
Day" It fell to the lot of .Mrs. Pope
to visit tlie employees of the Paradise
.Mine, a property well over twenty
miles from here, situated at a great
height, near the foot of Mount Nelson. Mrs. Pope was very successful
in her visit to these workers nnd in a
short account has set out the result
of her visit in the hope that It might
he of interest to others engaged in
similar work and stimulate them to
go and do likewise.   Sim says:
"Various members of our Red Cross
Committee having undertaken to visit
different parts of our scattered district for "Onr Day" it fell to my lot
to interview the miners half way Up
Mount Nelson. As it meant a drive of
ubout twenty-two miles along a fairly
difficult roud a kind friend offered to
'uke me up iu a rig. We starled tit
i\x thirty in the morning and at
twelvo o'clock we arrived nt the mine
office, and from tiiere up to the mine,
i ten minute walk, landed us breathless, In a room where the miners
were waiting for us—impatient at tlie
interruption, I thought, but looking
.try interesting with their little mining lamps all lit. just ready to return
n work. A few words addressed them
tbout the needs of our poor wounded
hoys' touched tlieir hearts nnd they
ill responded most generously. The
tourney We had taken, generally done
n two days, may have appealed to
hem, also the unusual sight of a
woman in camp, but whatever the
reason, they certainly made the trip
i'«ry well worth while, for we started
in our return journey with over one
nindred dollars collected, having left
:i small Union Jack flying In the room
is a souvenir.
There was still more collecting to
!ie done ::t Jack Pine nnd even the
'hlnaman cook did not hesitate to
ipen his purse. When we reached
lorne it was seven-thirty and dark.
ve telephoned our success to Mr. Ran
lolph Bruce, the owner of the mine
iml on hearing that wo had collect
id over one hundred and thirty dot
ars he added twenty five dollars to
tic sum and we felt that our share in
he day's work hail certainly been
worth while."

The Ford is Now Considered a Necessity
for Large-Scale Farming
WHETHER you are doing work on a large scale, or a small
scale, you endeavor to reduce the delays of your farm
machinery to a minimum |and>ave time. A Ford will assist
you in doing these two things.
If your tractor runs short of gasoline, the Ford will bring a few cans
right to the spot and greatly shorten the delay. Or if you need
a repair, or some new plow points, you can "run" the errand to
town and back in one-third the time it would take with a horse
and rig.
With a Ford you can supervise the work on your ranch much more
thoroughly. You can get your mail and supplies of tener, and take
more enjoyment out of prairie life. A Ford will do all these things
and many more, and at the same time save you money.
The strength and endurance of the Ford has been proved lhe
world over.   It is equal to the western roads and the distances.
The Ford is the cur for the Western Farmer.

Tiiere are many old supporters of Sir

Liberal propaganda that the Unionist
Qovernment is not sincere.   The absurdity  of  this  claptrap  Is  obvious

Tlie best men in the Liberal party
have declared tor Union Governmeut,
Some of thein have entered that Qovernment, others have announced their
adherence to It. The prime ministers
of every Canadian province with the
exception of two, have declared for
Union. Such spectacular and corn-
mantling party figures as I-\ B. Car-
veil, J. A. Culder, Hon. William Pugsley and V. P, Pardee have pronounced
for union. All over the country, thc
rank and fyle of both political parties
are swinging to an acceptance of
Union und all that it implies.
In the dreadful affairs of the pas
three years Canada has done mon
thnn it was dreamed sbo would be
nble to do. Now men are perceiving
that as yet the end has not been
reached of the effort lhat should be
made or tlie results tliat can he ac

Election day is approaching and upon that day the Liberals or Canada
will have to decide whether they will

Mr. Tom Wing, M. P., has told a
pathetic story of u venerable Scottish
mother who has lost four sons in the
war. Asked hy a sympathetic friend
however ahe managed to bear her sorrow, the old lady quietly replied:
"Well, I must keep on knitting socks
and jerseys. I count the stitches, and
1 haven't time to count my sorrows."
There are quite a *ew Canadian

ln 1917 the British have captured
more Germans than the total British
loss in prisoners since the war began.
In 1017 the British liave captured four
times as many guns as the Germans
have taken from the British during
the whole war.

What nation save Germany would

There is only one reason for an
election ut tills time. Sir Wilfred
Ijiurier refused to agree to a further
extension of Parliament. A year ago
he agreed, and the war out-look at
that time was less serious than it is
to-day. A yeur ago he agreed, although the Government's mandate was
five years old and there were vacancies in thc House of Commons. A
year ago he agreed, though he pretended to believe tliat the Government
was a group of corrnptlonists. There
whs not one more good reason this
year I'or rejecting the proposal of the
Prime Minister than there wan last
year. There was a bad reason, which
guided Sir Wilfred in his action, the
bad reason that he might be able to
snatch a new lease of power at the
risk of pulling Canada out of tbe war.

They caught the spirit of thc old-
timers on foredeck and quarterdeck'
und soon tbey had no complaint to
make. Trafalgar was fought by pressed men. and no one can question the
efficiency and ardor of Nelson's
crews. It Is reasonable to believe,
therefore, that even tin* least t'.esir-
ahle of the drafted men will become
valuable and spirited soldiers.
Some would like to have been in
the Army before now, but were restrained by a possibly undue sense
of duty to their rclntlves. ' Their!
problems will be settled for them by
the Exemption Tribunals. If taken,
they will march gladly and will be

authorities will bave no complaint
lo make of the drafted men. The
volunteers, whether returned or In

so doing they will help to provide effective reinforcements for the oversea army.
Drafted men will deserve well of

acquaintances. A soldier Is a soldier

Every citizen Is probably ready to
accept lhe abstract principle that tlie
practice of thrift and economy, with
the object nf accumulating the wherewithal for purchasing war bonds, Is
good for his compatriots; but uot all

is desirable. Il may not then be out

methods of saving by which each one

The expenditures of individual income producers are mainly under the
following heads: rents, board, or interest on mortgages; ..oml-capital outlay on cuch tilings as house furniture,
pianos, victrolas, motor cars, etc.;
wages paid to domestic or personal
servants; provisions; amusements and
the outlay on tobacco, beer and spirits; holidays or vacation. Probably u
any of us sit down and severely ana
lyse the i)ersonal expenditures as
above classified, we should find a field
for war loan savings under several
of the heads. In view of the urgency

"What is most necessary at the
present time Is unity of action in
Canada iu support of conscription,
which, in my opinion and in the opinion practically of all the officers and
men of the Canadian ferccs oversea
In Kngland and France, is the only
way In which Canada can continue
to keep her forces in the field up to
full strength, and thus continue doing
her part with the rest of thc Kmpire
in tlie struggle to stamp out Prussian
militarism. The present is no time
for party differences, and thc people
of Canada should unite as one man to
support any measure wlilch is considered by its Army leaders as neces
sary to enable our divisions in Frrnce
saving every possible dollar for sup-1 to maintain the glorious name they

years to give ostentatious or expensive entertainments and social functions; and similarly, our amusements,
recreations, holldaylngs. have taken
on :i sober aspect. A certain amount
nf expenditure In this time ls necessary in order to sustain health and
maintain productive capacity. It is
for each one of us to say to his conscience that his outlay for such purposes cannot be further impairment
to energy. If we cannot say this,
there is only one thing to do—and that
is to apply the knife and divert thc
.salvaged funds into the war loans.
As regards the outlay on provisions
and the expenditures on tobacco, beer,
whiskey, wine, e*c, we should have
the courage to apply the same rule.
In the cases of the poor and of people
of moderate means, the high prices
have already forced them to practice
the severest economy in connection
with their expenditures for provisions

To get good results and to make
healthy or satisfactory "recoveries"
from the expense account, which will
be available for war loan subscriptions, it Is necesaary to have the
hearty en-operation of the female
members of the family. In manv
households it is the case that the
women are more enthusiastic savers
thnn the men. and far more ready
to cut out the expenditure on nonessentials; and ln the households
wliere they still spend money freely
for things they could do without, It
is probably because they do not realize the grave issues that are at
stake, nnd the grea.. importance of
having every family conserve Its
monetary resources.
Self-denial in the matter of buying
new furniture, pianos, nutos, etc., If
generally or universally prnctlsed,
would give the Finance Minister
tunny additional millions of dollars
for carrying on t'< • war. With respect to nutomobi'. - used for pleasure it Is not only the cnpital expenditure that is lost to the national expenditure, bu nlso to the cost of operating or running the enrs. Por example, If a well-to-do citizen enters
Into nn agreement with his conscience, thnt owing to the war he
will postpone for two years the purchase of a $2,000 car, perhaps the

Tho Officer i-c Canadian War He-
cords has asked us to make known
that it is desired to compile a complete history in photograph of the
Canadians' share in the War, in the
same way that all other belligerent
countries aro compiling similar records.
It is particularly desired to obtain
photographs of all Officers, N. C. O's
and Men who have served or are now
serving In the Overseas Military Forces of Canada, and it Is requested that
an appeal should be made to this
end through these columns.
All Officers and other ranks serving Overseas may find it difficult
to send 1n their photographs and
their relatives are therefore especially appealed to. to send in their
photographs for them.
By preference the photographs
should be unmounted nnd printed ou
bromide paper in order to ensure permanence. Eneh photofrnph should
be accompanied by a concise record,
not exceeding two or three hundred
words, of the subject's military career
motions, distinctions nnd so on, as
this will greatly assist in obtaining
a full and accurate reenrd of all concerned.
In addition it Is desired to collect
all photographs dealing with the Mobilization. Training and Departure of
Troops together with pictures Illustrating Reviews, Sports, Presentations, etc. Any photograph of this
nature is regarded as a document of

Information Is published in order to
explain the methods which In the
Interests nf fair and equitable treatment of all Soldiers, nre followed hi
each case.
1. In the homes of Soldiers who
are absent, there occur what might
ho termed the inevitable tragedies of
life. In the serious or fatal illness of
members of their families. In these
circumstances the unite unturnl desire arises on the part of the relatives
to havo the soldiers return home, and
numerous requests are made to this
effect. Such cases form the maior
portion of those coming uuder tliis
2. Wliile these cases are v--*- - is-

unavoidable incidents of war, and It

Ite information and satisfactory evidence of the facts stated, endorsed by
one or more responsible persons, be-
sides the relatives, who can vouch

5. The tact of a Soldier being
wounded or sick in Hospital In either |
Kngland or France, is not a sufficient
reason for making a request for liis I
return to Canada. The man In every
case ia receiving the best and most
efficient medical attention and nursing, and not until he is fully recovered and rested will be be returned for
duty. On the other hand, should his
case bo such as to permanently incapacitate him from Active Service,
he will, in tlie ordinary way, be returned to Canada at tlie earliest possible moment for disposal.
ti. Relatives and friends of men at
the front are therefore requested to
carefully consider each individual
case In view of those requirements
ami only to submit applications In
urgent eases of absolute necessity,
such  as above outlined.

j for onward transmission by the Postal

Canadian Bed Cross Society, London.
ruder the new Arrangement the
i amount of foodstuff whicli may he
. sent to an Officer Prisoner of War
during four weeks mu&t not exceed
one hundred pounds. Of this total the
'Prisoners of War Department of the
Canadian Hed Cross will send to each*
Intorned Canadian officer including
: those attached to other Canadian units
i not. less than six ten pound parcels
; each four weeks. The remaining forty
pounds of foodstuffs per four weeks
may he sent personally hy relatives in
, Canada, hut each parcel inusl. bear a
coupon which tk.n be obtained on
! application from the Prisoners of War
j Department. Canadian   Red Cross SO-
i ciety, London, England,
; The righi to send food parcels to
an Officer Prisoner nf War rests with
; tlie next of kin, hut may he transferred by the latter or hy the Prisoner ot War himself to any person.    It
,is advisable that application should
be   made   to   the   Prisoners    of   War
! Department, Canadian   Red Cross So-
i ciety, London. England, for the ncces-
: sory coupons for parcels packed per-
! .-tonally at the earliest  possible mo-
! ment.
!    These coupons  are  to  he  used oa
! food parcels only and no coupons can
he Issued for amounts under ton
pounds. If. therefore, it is desired to
despatch a parcel weighing less than
ten pounds un ordinary coupon must
bo used and the parcel counts as one
of tho four permlssable in four weeks.
Articles may not be sent to any Society for enclosure In any parcel despatched under the Rod Cross label.
The import a a co of guarding against
any misuse of the label cannot bc
too strongly emphasized. Such action
would not only harm the Prisoner
to whom the parcel was addressed
but would react on other Prisoners
and might endanger the whole system
of despatching the food supplies to
Officers   and   men   who   have   fallen
1 into the hands of the enemy.
i    Parcels for Officers interned In Bul-
■ garla and Turkey come undor the
I new scheme, Owing, however, to the
j difficulties of por.tal communication.
j it is not advisable to send many par-
! eels   to  officers   in   Turkish   camps.
Supplies can be purchased in Asia
Minor and it is better to remit money
to the Prisoners rather than send
many parcels.

There was a large attendance nt
the Rex Theatre ou Sunday evening
to hear Mr. W. K. Cowen's address on
the work Ae .National Institute for
the Blind i.; doing for the soldiers and
sailors of the British Kmpire who
have lost their sight.
The meeting was held under the
auspices of the local Chapter 1. O. D.
.Mr. O. J. Spreull occupied the chair
and in introducing Mr. Cowen, dealt
briefly with the work of the Institute
and mentioned that lo the present
very few of the Canad'an soldier.; had
needed the course of training provided for those who have heen blinded
In the war.
Mr. Cowen gave a description of St,
Dunslan'a Hostel, London, England,
an old English mansion, loaned by its
owner, to the Institute. Some Idea
of the size of the building is obtained
when one learns that there Is accommodation for about 500 patients.
Instead or those who have lost
sight being shut off from participation hi the every day life of tbe world,
the training given them at Sl. Dnn-
wtnn's enables them to re-join tlie
ranks of the wage earners and to become self-supporting.
All men are taught the "touch system" of typewriting and provided
with typewriters so that they hnve
a ready means nf communication with
tlieir friends. .Many learn shorthand
and become sufficiently proficient lo
secure remunerative positions. As an

PARI! 1.
When Henry Thoreau lay dying at
Concord, his friend, Parker PHIsbury,
snt by liis bedside. Holding Thor-
enu's thin, wasted hand, Pillabury bent
over and whispered: "Henry, you are
nearing the border now. Can you see
anything on the other side?" With
firm voice, Thoreau looked up and
said: "One world at a time, Parker;
one world at a time."
The Soul's Doubt.
There are times in the history of
every life, when the soul seems drifting like a helpless harque, on a temp-
••st-tossed sea. Amid
shoals, the frail barque of the ixiul
drifts on, hopelessly and aimlessly, towards an unknown destiny. Por the
spiritual navigator, at such a time as
this, Thoreau's dictum may become
tho highest wisdom. At the post of
duty amid the thick darkness and dan
gera that surround hlm, he can only
bo patient and brave; and permit,
with calm surrender, the Great Disposer of all events to determine destiny.
This, however, is only a phase of
life, lt ls not a state. It certainly
cannot become a fixed state. Normally, Thoreau's dictum is contrary to the
soul's deepest aspirations and experience. Sooner or later, tlie baffled,
wearied soul begins to look ont on
lift- again with new hope nnd Htren.rh.
It gets a new vlew-no'ii. lhat changes
life's values. It changes life's emphasis ns Carlyle did, when in such
a mood, lie declared time to be Inexplicable, until eternity had been scanned : nnd the vnluc of the present
world to be largely fixed by the value
placed on the next. If this be the
only world, one's duty may lie to get
the greatest amount of Joy now. If
there be another world, one's duty
mny he to sacrifice the Immedlutc
pleasures; for temp.irary loss may
bring permanent gain, and Immediate
gain may end In eternal loss. The
problem nf a future life Is, therefore,
prncticle and imperative. The
healthy soul cannot but be interested, and intensely Interested, In whnt
is happening "on the other side."
The higher the life the wider the
range of vision. To see far, one
must live high; and, there are some
people who live so high that their
vision Is never clouded. The mists
never mar their outlook. The
heavenly landscnpe Is never far from
the vision of the heavenly-minded,
and for them, experience outweighs
the conclusions of tho most profound
philosophy. The New Testament
cure for low faith is a high life.   The
volted against death; but this King of
Terrors crushes all revolt. It Is Impossible to guard against death; for,
like a thief in the night, it comes to
steal, from the most watchful, both
peace and joy. It unmans the strongest, effaces the fairest, impoverishes
the richest, and deceives the cleverest. Death upsets all calculations,
and destroys all human programmes.
The race falls back exhausted In its
efforts to charm or stave off death.
Death still plays with destiny. Death
Is supreme.
Like weary mariners, we all sail
towards that far-off mysterious land,
whence no barques return; and this
fuct of deatli creates an interest In
the quest for life.
Friends and Death.

though we ourselves die not.   While

The common fact of death inevitably turns the thoughts to life beyond the grave. Man Is a dying man.

Cowen, accompanied by a few business
men, made a canvass of lhe down town
section of tho city on Monday, when
the further sum of $197.fid was sub
where sleep
the Joys of other years." However
complete and lovingly cherished the
picture, it is but a poor compensation
for the original. Friends die; but,
love never dies.
"Tbe  heart  that  has  truly   loved
never forgets,
But us truly loves on to the close;
As the sunflower turns on her god.
when he sets,
The same look thnt she turned
when he rose."
Consequently, love gets behind tlie
scenes to search for friendship, for
those "loved, long since, imd lost
awhile." The heavy feet of the messengers of death are always sounding, sometimes afar off, at other
times near at hand. They are coming,
incessantly, to carry off the loved
ones. The gates of death quickly
open to allow the stranger to enter.
WOUtld*; quickly they close ftgftln.
But the heurt outside the gate remains open. The wounds of broken
fellowship never close. We stand
at the gnto nf silence. We try
to peer through, Wo grow restless until tliey open again- maybe for us. Whnt hosts of anxious friends crowd around these
gates. The brooding silence of
eternity ensts t> wonderful spell
It entrances. Every time the curtain of tbe unseen lifts and friends
pass through, we fain would keep
the curtain from falling, until we too

Western front 101,534 prisoners and
510 guns.

Mr. Forster, was 128,000. The total
number of prisoners captured on all

British on August 24, said that tbe

Nothing    of recent    times will    so
hearten the Canadians In the trenches
as the formation of the Union Government  at   Ottawa.    Through   many  ii
bleak dnwn,  waiting io go over the
i top, or steeling their hearts to meet
Ian attack, the Canadian trench dwel-
i lers must have wondered in their In-
[ most souls whether the hardships and
i dangers they nre enduring at the front
j were  beiug  realized  in  Canada,  and
1 whether their sacrifices were to be
j lost   by the  Indifference of those  nt
j home.   Th.* band-playing and cheer-
i Ing and fine speeches accompanying
their   departure  overseas  must   have
contracted strangely with the l«<*k of
. necessary reinforcements at the front
and the seeming forgetful ness of the
needs  of  our   bonnie   fighters.    The
news thnt eld political lines have been
obliterated nnd the heart of Canada
