No criticism could bu offered on thu
whole show, whicli comprised twenty
numbers, as everything went off without n hitch and evory number on tlio
program was meted out a full round
ot applause and several numbers were
encored by the lurge audience present.
Thero was a great vnrlety of costumes, and the youthful actors uud
actresses wore kept busy doing quick-
change acts behind the scones. In
every numbor those participating
showed thorough training and tlio success of the performanco reflects great
credit upon the untiring efforts put
forth by Miss nuniBey and Miss Cherrington.
Tho dancing numbers on tho program were especially well received
and Miss Patricia McDermot proved a
child-wonder in this difficult art,
greatly surprising the audience by her
clever work.    She Is only nine years  __   _
of ago and ln Saturday's  program' u happy ending "«rHb *Htte wtrrtag
The patriotic dance was one of the
hits of the program, the various patriotic costumes being well received
and the appearance ol little Billy Oreen
In the make-up ot John Bull, accompanied by a bull dog, furnished the
climax to this Interesting number.
The Scotch reel and tho Irish jig In
representative costumes were also
features of the dancing part ol the
program. In the Irish jig little
Kenneth Campbell and Nancy Nisbet
created great amusement. These little
tots followed the older boys and girls
with exact precision, doing tbeir part
very cleverly and carefully.
The action songs by the pupils of
King Edward's School were all good,
showing careful training and with
considerable theatrical knowledge behind the numbers.
Many of the children taking part
aro   deserving   of    more    special
mention which space forbids.    Tbe
llerald congratulates all of them.
In tho part song, "Ode to Venice,"
thu children gave one of the most
musical songs on the program, their
voices blending harmoniously In the
various parts.
Thc children's playlet "The-Washing Day," was a very clever little
comedy capably handled hy the young
ladies and young men, there being
six wives and six husbands. Some
of them appeared quite youthful, but
wore exceedingly dignified. The
husbands rebelled against the washing day, declaring It Interfered with
tlieir rights and that British bus-
bauds never would be Blnves. Fairy
Goodadvlce opportunely appeared upon tho scene nnd the playlet came to
factions reconciled.
All present have expressed themselves as thoroughly enjoying the
performance. The long program of
twenty numbera took nearly three
hours to present The children were
all happy with their success and although tired after their hard work enjoyed the excitement aad the applause their efforts secured.
The minuet given by several Cranbrook young people was a very dainty
and artistic performance ln tbe costumes of ye olden tymes.

Volunteer Club Entertain Friends at
Fourth Keglmeatal Dance tt
the Auditorium
Informality was tbe password at the
mammoth dance given Monday at the
Auditorium theatre, under the auspices of the Cranbrook Volunteer Club,
it being their fourth regimental dance.
The Cranbrook public, as well as fortune, believes In helping those wbo
help themselves. When, therefore,
Monday evening they were accorded
this pleasant opportunity of again assisting the work of 'he Volunteer Club,
the response was all the more spontaneous and generous because the club
had already done so much on Its own
Initiative to supply tbe soldiers with
welcome accessories to the usual
At the dance hearts were trumps.
St. Valentine's Ib a day of (east at
which Dan Cupid rules, and hearts
play the leading part. Being Cupid's
day, love making must be the theme
or lt la robbed of Its meaning.
Having resolved ln Informality there
waa no receiving line, but the dance
committee resolved themselves into an
Informal reception committee nnd
exerted themselves all evening to add
to the pleasure of the guests, seeing
that they were introduced to congenial groups. This was important ln
making the dance a success, ln fact
this Ib an outstanding feature of all
club dances given by the 107th Regiment
As tbe Johnny Canucks and their
pretty partners gradually gathered In
the ballroom, and couple after couple
joined in the gracefully circling
throng, the hall was transformedtao
throng, the hall was transfigured with
that half-barbaric glamor of soldiers
which Intoxicates the Imagination. It
was a night long to bo remembered.
Tbe Cranbrook orchestra, led by Mrs
Arnold Wallinger, discoursed an excellent program ot music to the delight
of the many dancers.
On thia paragraph we must use
the soft medal. For decorations, lt
was advisable to have the color scheme
either rose, scarlet or pink. Rose Is
emblematic of hope and happiness and
scarlet is tho color of the heart and
lnve'a passion. Hearts and likenesses
of the little love god were used ns decorations. Shields festooned about
the walls and around the balcony, with
clusters of hearts hanging In each festoon were decidedly pretty. Tbe Auditorium was transformed into a bower
fit (or the god of love, and we understand he waa given full sway. Dan
CupW ruled.    It was his night
Tbe ladles of St. John Ambulance
Corp bad charge of the refreshments,
bad again provided a repast which
reflected great credit on that organisation.
Htwsta    Remembered   by
Its Fellow Workmen-A Social
A Urge number of the Brotherhood
of Railway Carmen of America met
Tuesday night at the residence ot W.
H. Jones to commemorate the occasion of tbe leaving for the front of
one of their number, Hr. W. Hewson,
who waa preaentcd witb a handsome
safety shaving outfit, neatly engraved, with "B. R. C. of A." The presentation waa made by Bro. R. Rota,
who, In a neat little speech, said he
was sure Mr. Hewson would give a
good account of himself at the front
He wished blm, on behalf of Kootenay Lodge, No. 173, the very best the
firing lino will produce. Bro. Hewson replied with a few well chosen
words, saying he felt It his duty to
go to the front When the country
needed men be (elt It his duty to be
In line.
A number of other Carmen spoke
on the Bubjcct, a number of patriotic
addresses being given by several
of the brethren. All said they would
eagerly watch the movements of Mr.
Hewson on the battlefield, and all
wished him a safe return to the city
ot Cranbrook.
A social time was then passed by
the assembled guests. The wanta ol
the Inner man were looked after, the
whole affair being In keeping with
tbe occaalon.
A similar event occurred when Bro.
Fred Woodward left with the flrat contingent

Live Stock Commissioner Hire Speaks
on tbe Subject—Tho Farmer
as a Bookkeeper
At a meeting of the Farmers on
Saturday last President A. 0. .Smith
presided over a meeting attended by
about fifty farmers and ethers. The
committee appointed to interview tlie
Express agent re opening on Saturday mornings, reported thut the ollice
was always open except durlug the
time tbe agent was at lunch or us on
Saturdays when lie hud to visit the
bank. They considered thut no blame
attached to him at all. A motion accepting tho report of the committee
was passed.
The secretary reported thut he was
awaiting an answer from the depart-
ment re killing of cattle on tlie railways, and so had not taken further action ln that matter.
It was decided to have a register
prepared showing the stock, crops,
etc., that each farmer had, so that It
would be on hand for reference when
enquiries wcre made for various farm
Discussion of n plan for a farmers'
evening, where en agricultural course
could be taken, covering farm carpentry, care of farm machinery, live
stock lectures, crop diBcussionB, farm
arithmetic and bookkeeping, milk testing, etc., etc., was deferred until tlio
next meeting.
The committee was instructed to get
quotations for Burhank, White aud
Carmens No. 1 seed potatoes.
Over thirty entries were taken for
the Field Crop Competitions.
The following resolutions were passed:
1. That it ls desirable that separate
homestead Inspectors be appointed tor
East and West Kootenay and that
copies of thc resolution bo sent the
agricultural department uud to thc
Conservative association.
That steps be taken to havo a
crop convention at Cranbrook on
March 6th, as one ls to bo held at
Creston on March 5th.
3. Tliat a letter be sent to the Conservative association urging them to
get the member for Cranbrook to support legislation for the compulsory
stamping of eggs with the place of
production and tbe date.
Mr. R. T. Williams cave an Interesting and able paper buitio Co-Operative
Marketing of Eggs . He showed how
such a system benefited the producer
by evening the prices a little the
year round, how lt Increased the
quantity and quality of the product
ln any district and how several other
tilings of great interest to producers
could be worked in with the scheme
After a short discussion it was laid
over so as to allow Mr. Rive, thc live
stock commissioner to speak on the
milk and creamery question. A lively
discussion followed this. The result
was that ln the matter of co-operation
along the dairy line was laid over as
thc district is not quite enough to
support a creamery. Mr. Rive pointed out tbat unless enough milk or
cream could be regularly supplied,
venture in that direction would bc
sure to fall. He urged those present
to go further Into the livestock brunch
as tbat was tho most certain and safe
branch ot the farmers work. Cranbrook needed more clearing, more fodder crops nnd then with that settled
tbe creamery would bc quite a safe investment
Extraordinary meetings of the
Farmers' Institute will be held on Saturday, February 27th, in the old gym.
The meetings are free to all. At 4.00
p.m. Mr. Upton, of the poultry department will demonstrate on the killing

Good Five Act Bill Presented at the
Auditorium Heels With
The Pantages show this week presented a splendid bill. It was so
well balanced that it was hard to
pick the best one. Every act scored
a lilt with the large audience.
The opening act was by Rencllo
and sister and this pair did a cycling
stunt whioh was new to Cranbrook.
They both proved themselves masters of the wheel and Introduced a
three-wheeled cycle which has not
been seen hero before.
Ilcnnfngs, Lowls & Co. offered a
comedy skit entitled ."Mixed Drinks,"
whicli was really a musical melange
wltll comedy, singing, Instrumental
music and dancing jumbled together
Into a very pleasing number.
The Morton Jewell Co. Introduced
some new scenic effects for their en-
tninco and proved to bc a quintette
of jugglers beaded by Miss Morton.
Tliey Introduced some very clever
feats, mixed with several up-to-
date songs which added to the novelty ot the number.
Oibson & Dyso, proved to be two
very eccentric and versatile comedians with an act thr.t had snap and
ao from beginning to end. The hydra-
iieodcd policcmau and tho young
man who was about to bo married
greatly amused the crowd.
The bill closed with tho melo-dramu
entitled "Outwitted," which was excellently staged nnd proved a most unusual drama full of pathos and unusual situations. Miss Netta Qtiiiin,
Mr. Ronald Bradley p.nd Edward
Hearn presented tlio playlet in a
most convincing manner.
(food Bill Next Week
The Auditorium theatre will offer

son as Cleopatra, assisted by Francis Young and a bevy ot dancing girls.

evil and offers up incenso to the gods,
then performing the dance of Incense.
The Gods, however, are not appeased,
for a slave brings hor the news that
Anthony Is dead. In a passion of re-
morso Cleopatra has the Serpent
brought to her and ln a wild fantastic
dance begs It to give her the kiss of
death, which he docs, colling around
her throat. After a short struggle

tlonal Highway.
Tho Eastport road, which Is the
wagon rond between Eastport and
Banners Fery on the American side,
is now an asured fact and will be completed this year. The U. S. Forestry
Service hus had the matter under advisement for some time and have estimated that tho rood would cost
$18,000 to complete. Last year a very
fine ncw Bteel bridge was constructed
near Eastport. Recently the Board
of Trade In Cranbrook was advised
that the county commissioners at
Bonners Ferry had appropriated
•.5,000 for the road which together
with the appropriation secured by thc
Forestry Service, will insure Its immediate construction.
Tho matter Is now up to the British
Columbia government to complete the
•ond between Cranbrook and Klngs-
cato. Thomas Caven has the matter
in hand and lt Is hoped that a large
enough appropriation will be mads to
finish the road on this side of the line
nnd thus connect up two very rich
dsltrlcts locally.
When completed the road will connect up the mislng links between Spokane and Calgary In what will In tbe
future he one of the most Important
International highways In the western
part of the continent, a road that wlll
eventually become the tourist's chosen route. Tho scenic grandeur of
fs route cannot be duplicated any-
ere iu North America and Its completion will be of vast Importance
commercially Unking up the prairie
country of Alberta, Saskatchewan,
Manitoba and Eastern British Columbia with Spokane, Washington and tho
other western states.
Many .Mutters ol Importance to be
Discussed Next Wednesday
The annual meeting of the Cranbrook Board of Trade has been called to meet at the council chambers,
City Hall, on next Wednesday evening next, February 24th, at eight
There are a number of matters
which are of great importance to the
city and district which wlll come up
to be dealt wltli by this meeting.
Reports of the officers for the past
year will be received and discussed.
The election of ollicers for the coming year will be one of the duties of
thc meeting.
This is a meeting which every citizen of Cranbrook should attend, and
not only attend but lend their Influence fn the right direction. Cranbrook citizens have a habit of standing back und criticising the Board of
Trade as If the organization was
effected only to serve the purpose of
a handful ot the citizens, lt Is the
handful which keeps the Board of
Trade alive, but that ls because many
citizens shirk their duty. The Board
of Trade has come to be recognized
In most Canadian cities as an Integral
part of their municipal life aud its
meetings are as Important as the city
council or tbe police commission.
Hoards of Trade are incorporated under tlie provincial law and tlicir powers and duties outlined. A properly
working Board of Trade that has the
shoulders of tho people behind It can
accomplish an immense amount of
good. Its best Work Is done in times

present In good times It Is not so | Cranbrook

largely attended and evinced a liveliness of interest we have not always
seen at these meetings. Mr. Williams' paper laid before the meeting
tbe needs ol some better system of
disposing of local eggs and the advantages of an egg depot were well
presented. Mr. Williams Is a pleasing and capable speaker and clearly
makes his points without waste of
effort his remarks merit carelul consideration and the matter should come
up again after lt has had such. We
believe much good has been accomplished by the discussion on the milk
depot, creamery, etc. We regretted
to hear several declaiming at the lack
of action and accomplishment by the
meeting, but we believe Messrs. Soren
Johnson and W. P. Macdonald were
sound In their remarks that much
work was yet necessary before we
are ready for a creamery and that the
establishment of a milk depot would
not at present effect enough of a saving to the producer to make lt profitable either tor him or his customers. It certainly was most opportune and served a good purpose to
have the dairy commissioner on hand,

of Britain's best manhood came rolling
in, depositing its human freight on the

self to some rooming house or perhaps rented a house, but left severely
alone so far as guidance or assistance
was concerned ln Its loyal attempt to
help make the British Empire more
prosperous by developing the resources ot the province.
During tho time this was going on
tho Provinclnl Government was busy
handing out all the agricultural land
to speculators who knew thnt from the
land cometh all wealth. When the
worker went to enquire as to the best
way to locate himself on a piece ol
land whereon ho would be nble to
make a living tor htmsell and some
others he was staggered with the conditions under which he would have to
work. Very soon ho got his eyes
opened and the farther he looked the
more he was convinced that so (ar
as the land question was concerned
it was a dead Issue lor him.
Tho real estate boom was at Its
height and lor the time being he
could get plenty of employment one
way or another.
But the question always came to
him when he went down to meet some
friend who hnd come ln with the last
train load:   Where will It end?
These are tho men who we meet
trudging their way up to tlio city
halls, to the municipal halls. The
visions of a nice comfortable little
farm or ranch where there would be
peace and plenty has vanished and in
its place looms the dread spectre of
want and misery.

The Grand Priory ol the Order ot

honor of being a member or associate,
baa forwarded a circular letter saying that the Army Council has approved ol an otter Irom the Order to
provide. and maintain lor service
abroad or at home, tor a period ol not
less than six months, a fully equipped Oeneral Hospital of 625 beds, to
bo designated ns "The St John Ambulance Brigado Hospital."
Sir Herbert Perrott, secretary of the
Oeneral Council of tho Order, states
that the probable cost ot each hed will
be £100 lor the year, and expresses
the hope that all members ol the
Order and associates will, by personal contributions and otherwise,
make the proposed hospital a complete, success.
Any person contributing $'.00.00
would have a bed bearing his or her
name. Any town or city raising that
sum could have a bed dedicated to
them, or the province as a whole may
contribute sufficient to have one or
more beds known as the British Columbia beds..
There are over 2,000 certilieate
holders In B. C. If enrh one contributes 11.00 or moie, accnrdlng to
his means, a handsome sum could be
realised lor this laudable purpose.
He would have tho privilege, tt a
very small cost, ot contributing to the
welfare of those who have bravely
gone to the Iront. We expect tbat
our Canadians will soon be In the flr-
'ng line, and no doubt many ol them
will be wounded, and It will be a satisfaction tb know that wo are helping In no small way to relieve their
suffering. We have no doubt thnt
oach ono ol you wlll make a contribution which wlll enable us to equip
at least lour beds lor this worthy
Wt would request therefore, that
you send a contribution without delay to the Secretary of your center,

have not restrained their feet." Thus

Is easy. The third boy Irom the top

makes a cat climb a telephone pole?
Easy again, says you. Dog, maybe,
Maybe another cat ol a larger calibre.
Very well. But what makes that cat
stoy up there once she gets there?
Pause tor reply. Silence. Last Sunday night, while hall ot tbe 'eity slept,
unbeknownst, as it were, a cat climbed
a telephone pole near Dobson k Wll-

had the power ot choosing the good
or the evil way. They chose tho latter. It ts true that Ood could havo
prevented this choice; but to the extent Is he deprived of the power of
doing right! And so because ot a
deliberate choice of evil the hands
ot the Lord were tied. He was a
"mighty man that could not save."
History records different ways ln
which the hands of the Lord wcre
tied. We mention three.
1. By unseemly strife.
In the flrat century the young
church waa broken up by divisions.
Some said: "We are ot Paul;" others,
"we are of Apollos"; others, "We are
ol Cephas," while others contended
" We are ot Christ" Do you think the
power ot Christ had lull sway ln a
church rent asunder by factional
In the second and third centuries
the work was again hindered.   The
fight this time was ovor questions of
.gnosticism and Monorchism.   Whilst
'churchmen brawled.over such points j
as, Waa'Christ a mere man, or an
emanation from Ood? nnd, Was Christ
distinct, or was He not distinct from
the Father? the real work of God
was   neglected, and   Christ's   hands
were tied because of wordy polemics.
The fourth century saw men In the
broiling bent ot the famous Avian
controversy.   Was Christ ot the same
essence is his Father, or like essence?
Men fought over this as if the salvation of their souls depended on s
settlement of the question.   Even emperors entered the wordy battle, and I
for fifty long years It waged hot and
bitter.   But what of the Pagans surrounding tbe angry churchmen? What
even of their own morals?   It ls sad
to relate that points ot doctrine were
ot more Importance to the disputants.
From that time onward tbere have
been tumult and disagreement much
to disadvantage ot spiritual progress
In the church, and during these times
the Lord baa been straightened not In
Himself, but In those who professed
to serve Him.
2. Because men hive net been able
to real the Bible la tte language tbey
spoke. I
At one time tbe Bible was a sealed
book to all aave tbe learned. The
Sacred Book must not be translated
Into the vulgar tongue (aa tbe English
language was once called), said the
church authorities. Just Imagine the
state ot tbe masses existing on a second-band Interpretation of tbe Book
that Ood intended should be for all
and not for tbe monopoly ot a lew.
This naturally led to abuses ot a flagrant kind. The great body of the
people were In darkness and Ignorance
of Ood't message for tbem. Here
again do we aee tbe hands ot Christ
securely bound.
. .*.. .They wen also tied ta regard to
foreign missions
No rice may claim Christ as belonging especially to tt He Is Lord
ot tht tropics is well is the artlcs.
. Augustine was a Roman, Calvin was
I French, Knox waa a Scot; but Christ
waa and ts universal, and all races
may claim him as Savior, yet none
I may say tbat he Is Savior to It alonel
That meant then tbat Christ has no
•foreign" missions. To him all are
home missions, although for convenience we use the word "torelgn."

manded His disciples to "go Into all
tbe world and preach the Gospel" the
church bat been slick ind occasional

"Billy" Sunday, twentieth century
evangelist, one-time star base runner
and center fielder of "Pop" Anson's
old White Sox, has the staid city of
Philadelphia eating out of his hand.
The klud of gospel thc Reverend
"Billy" Is handing out to Philadelphia
Is something quite new to that town
and probably to any other cast of the
Rocky Mountains, except those which
he has already awakened and which
have wltnesed earlier what he calls
"The Chautauqua salute to God," with
which he. opens his extraordinary revival services. The huge tabernacle,
which was built for the occasion, holds
60,000 persons and it la crowded to Its
capacity at every service. Here are a
few samples ot Billy's pulpit oratory
that Is arousing Philadelphia's religious fervor:
"The Clay and Webster and Calhoun
and Douglas and Lincoln type of American citizen has been supplanted by
the good for nothing, God-forsaken,
lick spittle, peanut headed, weasel
eyed, whiskey soaked, rum guzzling,
gin guzzling politicians of our day."
"Down here the devil lias forced
the issue, but the devil would have
cold feet and pneumonia in twenty-
four hours if we'd get busy and live
the first twenty verses of the Sermon
on the Mount.

a blind spider. There are others so

noses to save wear and tear on their
