the dissemination of such knowledge
with specific data, as will best conserve and develop the human resources of our great dominion and also
this elty.

terms tha a letter would permit, can:

our community. The medical fraternity have given a full afternoon of
their valuable time In assisting the

They arc enthusiastic in their commendation of the effort thai '^ being

To the Mayor and Aldermen, Clly *>r
(Continued  on  pag*  four)
The second annual Cranbi'jok and
District Poultry Show opened yesterday and Is being continued to-day in
ih,- Poultry Building at the Exhibition Grounds.
There are about 260 entries, and
while ihe exhibition cannot compare
wiili those held iu some uf tlie larger
centres, as 10 Bite, there is m fault
whatever t<> bo found in the quality
of the exhibits sent In for competition
by the poultrymen of this district.
The Committee bad arranged for
cartago of all local entries and when
Mr. \\r. H. WeetbrooH nf Lethbrldge,
who officiated as Judge, reached the
city 011 tlu.' noon train, he found all
exhibits staged and everything in
readiness for him to get to work,
which he proceeded to do without delay, and before dark had completed
the awards in tlie various classes,
leaving only the ultttment of the
specials for to-day.
In conversation with our representative, Mr. Wcstbrook expressed himself as very pleased witli the quality
of the birds on exhibition, commenting in particular on outstanding entries In almost all varieties. Speaking of the particularly good specimens he mentioned the single-comb
White Leghorn enck from the Atchison Poultry Farm, also tlie black and
white Orpingtons sent In by It. Jones
of Fertile. The Judge considered the
Barred Plymouth Rocks to be without doubt tin- best class in the show,
while A. IJ. Smith's entry of Cornish
were of excellent quality, as also were
H.  Hughes'  Hondans.
Mr. Westbrook considered tlie entries deserving of a little more work
along the line of preparation for
showing, as birds bn (which some time
and attention lias been spent, make
far better appearance In the show pen,
than those which go direct from the
run to the show.
Mr. P. S. ityckman performed the
duties of Show Secretary in his usual
efficient manner. Others to whom
considerable credit is due for the preparatory work and the satisfactory
way in which the show has been carried out being President E. T. Cooper,
Association-Secretary C. K. Sheppard,
Show Superintendent R. Jones of Pernie, also .Messrs. \V. Harvey, VV. R.
Watson. YV. It. tiibbs, A. B. Smith,
P, Wea the rail and W. B. Black.
An exhibitor who was missed from
the show was Mr. A. M. Beattie of
Waldo. In consequence of a severe
snow storm. Mr. Beattie was unable
to get his birds in to the show. Several Pernie poultrymen sent la exhibits and secured their share of the
prizes.

with general joy. the obstruction to
: Phyllis'   marriage   being  at   last   re-
' moved and the jibes of the family and

, and James Raleigh, are at once turned I
to devoted attention.
I    Celia is compelled  by  the  family
enthusiasm to writo a love letter to
the  Colonel   which  she  attempts  to'

Phyllis and mailed.
Cella   later  destroys   the   package

letter.    Aunt  Ida,  Mrs.  Faraday, of
Chicago, a florid, quick tempered wo- ■
man of fifty, much against her principles,    becomes    an   accomplice   to
whom  Celia  reveals  her   plan.    The
Colonel   must  die  of  wounds   eight
I months later by announcement in the

in the confusion it falls at Cella's feet
and she reads the news with assumed
grief.
In   the  meantime  the   letter   has
reached a real Colonel Smith who returns to  England and comes to call
on  Celia.    Wishing  to  size  up  the
situation,   he   introduces   himself   to

trace of stage nervousness they all
did well.
We must not overlook Miss Sylvia
Beech who acted the part of parlour
maid particularly well.
Mrs. H. T. Williams, while not appearing on the stage, is deserving of
considerable credit in connection with
the work of preparation of the play.
Miss Woodland anil Miss Cherrtngton were presented with boquets at

Thanks are especially due to the

several selections during tin- intermissions.

in our last Issue we expect ietl tho
: bono thai ;;ll the Civic Officials would
he re-elected by acclamation and up
to the time iu' going to press, we arc
pleased to Bay there appears no Indication ul' an election Doing forced
mi tho city,
civic positions are no sinceuro, tli'.1
Mayor, Councillors, School Trustees,
and Commissioners must devote
considerable time to their respective
duties, if the City's welfare is to bo
tiperly cared for, this work is done
(trntiiltnusly and Cranhrook has been
particularly fortunate in its Civic Dir-
■ '1- In Mint they imve always given
1' their best.
There is a tendency en tlie pnit of
he Citizens to accept such services as
a matter of course. Wo are prone to
tic forward with our criticisms and
faultfindings, usually without justification and backward in our expressions of gratitude and apprnvnl; as
a matter of fact the City owe;; a deep
debl of gratitude to Mayor Clnpp, the
Aldermen, and oilier officers for the
arduous and satisfactory duties they
have carried out and it Is no small
thing to ash them to continue these
duties for another year—the third
term for not a few of them.
As soon as conditions warrant it,
there should be n'> time losl in re-
nutting our faithful Councillors with
some measure of reward, by \vi\y of
salary.
The Directors of Ranks and other
large Corporations are paid for their
services and there is as iituci . if nol
mbre reason why the Director-; of a
City's business affairs should receive
appropriate remuneration for services
rendered.
We understand that Mr. F. M, Mac-
Phorson and Mr. Arthur Shnnklnnd
are willing to serve as Aldermen to
replace the Late Alderman Hanson,
and Alderman Green, who has expressed a desire to retire. Roth men are
well known and would render efficient service.
There was some mention 'Of u Police Commissioner contest. We trust
we are misinformed. The present
Commissioners tire Mr. Robert Eakln
and Mr. T. B, Parrel! and there Is n
general feeling that both these men
have performed a difficult nnd often
unpleasant task with ..very satlsfac-
lon. Roth are willing to continue and
we trust they will bo returned by acclamation. The policy of the police
Commissioners has 1)6011 faithfully
carried out by the Chief of Pjllce
as evidenced by the Annual Report
which appears in this issue, the moral condition of the town has greatly
im proved. Tin horn::, gamblers,
crooks, nnd oilier undesirables arc
learning that Cranhrook is an unprofitable city to ply their pernicious
trades and are giving ii n wide berth.
Tills is us it should he—wo do not
wanl such characters in our midst
and the Chief ot Pollco deserve* credit for performing his duttOH In bo
efficient a manner,

PIMM'S  XKXT SEASON
Throughout tho country there was
.1 splendid response during 1817 to
1 in- ciii 1 for Inerdased agricultural
production; Larger crops were raised on ihe forms, and < [ty dwotlere by
the cultivation ot gardens and vacant
lots contributing greatly to tho success of Canada's efforts to relieve
the world-wide food shortage. Greater production of food supplies than
ever is required this year for field
crops are not only required to meet
Immediate human needs, but Increased production of hogs, dairy products,
and beef are dependent upon such
cropa.
The piuduction of maximum crops
demands constant watchfulness and
effort on ihe pan of the farmer, fruitgrower, and vacant lot cultivator In
order that bucIi cropa may bo protected from tlie numerous pests that attack them, We repeat: "Crop protection means crop pioductlon." Insect
pesis destioy annually from m to i!r.
per cent of nil cropa grown. Tho
total loss to the country is enormous;
it' we express the aggregate hiss Inflicted annually hy Insect pest to the
field ci'u's of Canada hi terms of
wheat we find that tho total loss is
sufficient to feed tho entire population
of the country for one year. Much 'if
that loss can be prevented. At the
present time it is Incumbent upon us
to take every means to prevent it.
Insect:, can be as effective as enemy
submarines in destroying fcod supplies. Like submarines, they are insidious In thellr operations. They
must he sought out, and destroyed.
Now is ihe time to make preparations for this year's offensive. To
he prepared is half the battle. Lack
of foresight and duo preparation
means d If appointment and loss. Tlie
greater cost of production and the
greater need of more crops makes
crop protection all tlie more necessary. Utilize the present quiet Eeaton
to mnek plans for this year's campaign. According to (lie crops that
are grown and tlie insects that occur
in your district make preparations
now for preventing their ravages this
season. Owing to the sudden demand during the period when insects
were active hist summer for insecticides such as lead arsenate, and Paris
green, a serious shortage occurred in
many 1 laces. With consequent higher
prices. Tills can he avoided if growers win obtain their requirements he-
fore spring. Insecticides are the
growers' ammunition, ample supplies
of which are necessary to a successful offensive. Fruit-growers should
now determine their requirements and
take steps to meet them. Growers of
potatoes and other field crops subject to Insect attack should obtain
supplies of the standard Insecticides
to meet their needs: arsenicals for insects such as grasshoppers, potato-
beetles, cutworms and other eater-
pillars that devour tlie foliage; contact insecticides such as whale-oil
soap and nicotine preparations for
such insects us- plant lice or aphlds.
All spraying machinery should be
thoroughly overhauled, cleaned, and
oiled In readiness for use when required In the spring, ns the spring is
a busy time for Iho grower. Such
timely preparation will mean not only
tlie saving of time—an Important matter when labour is scarce- bit I It
Will also mean tho saving of crops,
for a few days' delay in applying preventive or control measures will frequently result in serious losses from
Insect   pests.
'Germany/ he added, 'will never forget Guynoiuer.'
-Many eyes were wet. Many were
the handclasps when tlie ceremony
finished. Thereupon the guide accompanied the Frenchmen to the field
Where t!l(!ir machines were, which
during the ceremony, had been refilled
with petrol, starting the engines, and
got ready for return.
An hour afterwards the French
aviators descended behind their own
lines.

'La Nazione,' of Florence, has re- j
ccived from Paris the following particulars respecting the funeral of the 1
famous French aviator. Guynemcr,
who fell behind the enemy linos.
The disappearance of Guynemcr was
made known throughout the whblo of
the French air service, but no news
of his death was to hand until on j
one of the French aerodromes a Qer- j
man aeroplane dropped n package.
This package contained a uniform, a !
pocket case, and a tetter. The uni-.
form, which was bloodstained, belonged to the heroic and unfortunate avln- ■
tor.
11- the pocket case wore bank note:;.
The letter came from tho commander of the Gorman aviation corps on
the Western front, it contained an
Invitation to tho French aviation corps
to enme and assist at the obsequies of
Giiyneiner. The most complete security and absolute liberty of passage over the lines Of fire were guaranteed, both for the journey out and
return. It was oxprccsly stated that
tin> French aviators could fly dose
to the ground. No shol would be
fired.
On the day fixed, at dawn, 16 French
aviators, an entire squadron, with a
caput iu at tho bead, traversed the
enemy lines and made for 4ho place
indicated In the letter of lnvH&tton.
After descending, the nvl ors, accompanied by their adversaries, made
for the village close by where the
body of Guynemcr lay. In the modest
church Frenchmen and Hermans joined together in the religious ceremony.
which was brief but moving. Wreaths
sent, in some cases by*the families of
the German aviators, were then placed
upon the coffin.
In tlie adjoining cemetery a German
officer paid tribute to the fallen nvtlV
Ibr, Nor was a tribute of homage to
French aviation omitted. Tlie office,
declared that German aviation felt It-
flolf to be the disciple nr the French,
who were masters or courage nnd
hardihood In the realm nf aeronautics.
OF WOMEN'S INSTITUTE
At the annual meeting of the Cranbrook Women's Institute lust week.
considerable business was accomplished and a very successful year's
work brought to a termination, The
attendance was goOd, over inn members bolus present.
Reports were presented by the retiring Preldont, Mrs. W. B. RfcFnr-
lutie, Mrs. E. II. Lenman, Senior Director, Mrs. J. W. Burton, Secretary
Treasurer, Mrs. J, T. Sarvis, who
has charge of the Institute Cook
Books, and the Librarian, Mrs. J, S.
Brake.
Tlie following extracts from tho
various reports, which showed 1917
t':i have been a record year as to membership, income, and work successfully undertaken, give some idea of
the activities of tho Institute during
the past year.
The number of members was 14".
Ten papers and addresses on matters of Interest and importance to the
members wore rend at the meetings,
five demonstrations wore given, end
there were two gift showers for the
hoys overseas.
Musical selections, both vocal and
nstrumental, formed part, of tho programme at  each  mooting.
The annual Valentine Social took
place in February. The meeting in
May was particularly patriotic, and
on this occasion carnations were pre-
■ mod to the mothers, wives, and
.dsters of soldiers. The flower show
and dance was another important
event. The Institute took charge of
the refreshment booth at the Fall
Fair. The year closed with tiio Anniversary  Social and dnnce.
The outstanding lecture of the
year's work, and one which deserves
special mention, was the conference
of the Kootenay and Boundary women's Institutes in September. Mr.
W. E, Scott, Supt, of Institutes, who
was in attendance, gave unstinted
praise to tho Cranbrook Institute for
the successful manner In which the
conference was arranged and carried
out, In addition to all the members
of the Advisory Lnnrd, there were
about   30   delegates  iu   attendance.
The year opened with 124 books
in the library and closed with 102. an
increase of over fifty per cent, in
number of volumes.
$30.00 lias been derived from the
sale of cook-books.
The Secretary-Treasurer's rejOrt
showed a total income of $1010.08.
So promptly does the Institute devote
Its funds to patriotic and other purposes that the balance sheet showed
only SS cents on hand at close Of
tho year.
Among the disbursements may he
mentioned, donations to various pat
rlotlo funds, $200.00; Yarn for socks,
JlOS.00; Parcels for boys overseas,
$860.00.
No less than 150 parcels were sent
overseas, and that these are appreciated is shOWn by the letters appearing in Wir columns from time to time.
227 pairs of socks were also sent to
Frnnce.
The auditors report, presented by
Mrs. \V. W. Wolfer, complimented the
Secretary-Treasurer on the wny in
which tho records were kept and that
the services of Mrs. J. AV. Burton are
appreciated by the members was demonstrated by her unanimous re-election to office. Mrs. W. B. McFarlane
was also re-elected for a fourth term
ns President, with Mrs. G. 11. Thompson as Vice-President and Mosdamcs
Dnn   Campbell,   Lester   Clapp,   E.   II.

The Fdiior. CranbtOOk Herald:
Sir: The   President,   Officers   nnd
Directors of tho Women's Institute
desire to place on record their hearty
appreciation of the splendid services
of tho City Police Commissioners and
the Chief of Police during the past |
year, under whose supervision it Is
believed the city never bore 11 bettor :
reputation as far as elimination of
crime is concerned.
While much remains to be done to
ImptOVO conditions generally, il is
highly gratifying to note the progress
rnado in obliterating piostitutlon,
hitherto so rampant in our neighborhood, and  also   ihe  suppression  ot '<
open   gambling,  and   therefore   it   lie-
comes a duty to pay tribute and give
Credll   Where   it   is  due.
At all times assistance si id bo
given freely to tho Pi lco in their arduous attempts to ovorcomo crime and
citizens, knowing or coses Infringing 1
and violating tho Prohibition Act. audi
other equally Important laws should
willingly furnish such fuels tottho
proper authorities and never show j
reluctance to come forward with
necessary evidence that will lead to
a conviction of the perpotrators, thus
sharing the responsibility of making
t'ranhrook a wholesome place In
which 10 live.
Thanking you sir,
Florence A.  Burton,

line hour before tlie advertised time !
for starting, the Parish Hall waa filled
with an eager crowd, waiting to hear
tlie Rev. Hugh Dobson and see him
demonstrate the exhibit donllpg with
tho mailer ol' "The Coneeivntlon and'
devolopmcnt of human life."
The opening session was preceded !
by a baby clinic at which 22 babies j
were examined by Drs. dreen ami

mcoBuremoni tcBl by Nurse Thompson Mr. Green ami Miles were assisted by nurses l-'cikir am' Erlckson.
The bnbies prosentcd were somewhat
above tin' normal owing lo the care
; taken that no sick child waa allowed
; in tlie clinic.
The resull nf (hla examination was
1 announced al the close of Thursday's
evening meeting, by Mr. Dobson. who
old tho nudlence thai the purpose of
tho clinic is not n contest to determine
who has the best baby; human powers
do not enable us to discriminate, but
an effort is made by such a clinic to
i find out tbe way by which each child
may b.' helped to a fuller and better
lifo.
Of necoBstty the examination was
toinewhat rapid owing to the number
lo be examined,
Tbe two children who in their bis-
tory ami condition revealed the least
defeel were, first, Doris Itoso Haley,
daughter of Mrs Thomas Haley, who
j revealed just one defect; ami Mar

wore blind IT defects and in the 22
. families represented, il was found that
there were 118 children living ami B

|     Fifteen of the children had had the
| ndvantnge bf pxcluslvo breastfeeding
for at least eight mouths while seven
had not this benefit.
The charts wore returned lo the
, respective mothers and it is hoped

With reference to Ihe Institute and

praise or to estimate Its value It
Is .i pleasure to record tbe appreciation shown by splendid audiences al
h each session, and tho way the charts
and plibtographs were examined ann
i questions naked concerning them re-
I voalod a gronl desire to know the
1 tacts, and by the expression upon the
faces It was evident that new Ugh was
brought to a great many.
In addition to tbe address given by
tbe director of tbe exhibit, addresses
were given or papers read by Dr.
MacKinnon, Nurse Thompson, E. H.
McPhee, Rev, R, E. Pow, all dealing
with questiona coming within the scope
of their own Investigation and study.
Tlie addresses by Mr. Dobson were
Intensely interesting and only a bore

In Ills opening address mi "The
Conservation and development of our,

because of the complacency of tin-
people of Canada .10,000 children of

The introduction of amendments
and tbe passing of seven.) new Bylaws has considerably strengthened
the hands of this Department. In particular I might mention ihe passing

satisfactorily. The object of preventing young children fiOm being on the
streets nt night has been accomplished. It if also noticeable that there
bus been a very marked decrease in
the number of complaints of wilful
