months conducting campaigns in the

On Tuesday, April 17th, thc Annual
Meeting of the Association was held,
at which reports were given of tlie
year's work, ending March 31st.
The past year has been a very suc-
cossfnl one not only from a financial
standpoint, but also in its influence,
through service rendered to those
whom the Association has heen able
to reueli. The Auditors statement of
tlii' year's business showed a gain for
tlie year of $054.00 In the financial
stnndinj,; of the Association while the
building equipment has been greatly
Improved in many resects. A statement of statistics read by the General
Secretary also showed that the Association lias been of greater service In
the past year than ever befor.
|    Por the present homelike condition
...  1 of the building credit is largely due
nt   | tn the members of the Ladies' Auxiliary who In tlie past year under the
leadership of Mrs. J. \V, Spence have
supplied  linen, towels, curtains, etc..
I and in this way have added greatly
to tlio eoziueas of the rooms and the
«oui fort of the men  who make the
: Association their home.

elected by acclamation as follows: —

hod one just as good and from reports
a llttle bettor. With the exception
of Major Davey. our company com
iiieinder, and Capt. Archer, nur adjutant, we were all Lieutenants, and the
only lieutenants who did not stay with
us were Messrs. Ronnie and Cart wel,
both of Nelson.
At Calgary we had some Cranhrook
friends to meet us and 1 assure ynu
It was good to see them and the
boys felt that they were not forgotten,
1 cannpt remember having m>vn any
Pernie people nt Calgary that morning. Our hoys are scattered around
now and I suppose some of tliem are
In Prance. 1 have transferred to the
Canadian Machine Gun Depot and I
brought a few of our boys over with
me. The last time 1 saw Jim Brechin
he was goiiiK to some camp tn Lake
another course In bnyouet fighting and
physical training, Prank Richardson
is, 1 believe, taking bombing somewhere else and I don't know whal Ima
become of Bill Harris.
I saw Eddie Doolan ahout two weeks

take an Officer's Training Course.
Speery Phillips is taklnK tlie same

Imperial Bank in Cranbrook.
Prance* Sunday, March 25, 1917
Well old man, here I am at last well
started towards the game. I am still
at the base but am going up the line
tomorrow and so I will not hnve another chance of writing In tlie next
few dasy. We had quite a rough hut
otherwise uneventful trip across tlie
channel and I made my acquaintance
with sea sickness hut not off with a
very light attack.
We have spent a few very happy
days here at tlie base. It Is Just a
big re-union, as you meet boys you
have met before In all sorts of places.
If you see the Hognrths tell them I
came over with Harry Banfield and
he went up the line yesterday so I expect to see blm again in a day or two.
There is an officer still nt our reserve
at Seaford who came over from Canada with the 225th, Whattaker. his
name Is. He was a preacher of sorts
In civil life and a fine little chap.
He was married to n Pt. Oeorge girl
and Ills wife and family ere up there
now so I thought probably you may
know hlm.
We. got a great send off from Sea-
ford as the colonel and all the senior
officers came down to see us away,
sailed from Southampton.
So far my Impression of Prance is
very favorable as the country about
here is very beautiful and fairly hoary
with age, as some of the boys say ln
their letters home, it has whiskers on.
My chief job here has been censoring
letters as we all spend pnrt of our
morning at that job. The men are
simply wonderful the way they keep
themselves within the limits allowed
to them in letter writing und it is quite
funny the things they have to say
alKiut the censor,
I wish you could see me decked oul
In my tin hat and my pack upon my
back and yon wnuld be Rind to see me
doing a bit of work at last. 1 can tell
you It feels great to he really setting
Into the game nt last though. We
all feel so horribly fit that we hardly
know how to contain ourselves, I
have got to get to my nest though
right away as I huve to he up with the
birds In the morning for fear there i-
an order for ns to move at once. If we
I do not go early In the morning we
j know we will not get away until tic
the evening as that is the usual time
i for ns to start our journey up.
j    With kind remembrance to all kooi!
j Cranbrook friends.       Yours.

after doing all these things, ynu re-'
cetve. word that padlocks have heen
broken off, bonrds wrenched from'
windows and window:- smashed, nnd
things that were left in the heme,
things of intrinsic value, have been
wantonly destroyed, overy cupboard
ransacked,,and boxes completely emptied, and the contents strewn all ovor
the rooms? Can it he possible, sir.
that nur hoys have forgotten that there
Is a law In this country, and that the
arm of the law is far roachlng, nud

forgotten so soon, the punishment
meted ont to one hoy who was cnught
In his wrong doing? I wish to sny.

In the course of a well written letter
from a correspondent (signed "A
Prospector") the claim is made that
the prnspectnrs of the province are not
getting a fair show. Our correspondent claims that the prospector is de-
splced and forgotten and yet his work
is worthy and important.
He says, in pnrt:
"His are the greatest battles, his are
are gravest dangers, but his arc the '■
grandest achievements of our whole I
pioneer tribe.   There is not a piece of
metal, from the sewing needle, to the j
locomotive or the dreadnought, there
Is not a piece of material shaped for.
any service, from the beautiful statue
to the weaving of the silken fabric for
Hie advancement of nature's supreni*
est beauty, true woman kind, that does |
not represent the fears, the pains ami'
the persistent   energy  of   the   pros-!
He continues, "It was a thing   of
small   moment,   that   three   starving
men. hurried to stake a very indifferent discovery in this valley some years
ago.   But It Is a very different thing
to know that the  Sullivan   Mine  is J
wortii over a hundred million dollars.:
with a likelihood of still greater value i
by further discoveries.   The work of:
theso  men  and  those   who   followed
them  on   this  property  (represents ,
one of tiie most powerful factors in ;
the mighty conflict now raging on llie
plains of Kurope, and is one nf the
great stepping stones to final victory
for the liberty of the world.   Why the
people of this country should persist-,
antly disbelieve  in  their country.  Is,
hard  to  understand,  but  why  they i
should disregard, disbelieve and constantly   belittle  their  prospectors  Is j
unfortunate for all, to Hie last degree,   i
While the prospector asks  for no |
favor, he still hopes to be considered
human nnd pleads for nothing more
than should fall to those who deserve
as he deserves, hope as he hopes, and
work as be works."

When Women are Weak
Women who feel weak, languid and depressed—
who look pale and dull-eyed, and have lost appetite and fresh looks—need a tonic that will
purify the blood, help the organs of digestion,
regulate the liver and bowels, and strengthen
the system.   It long has been known that
are a blessing to weak women, for they quickly correct
womanly ailments, improve the appetite, purify tbe
blood and re-establish healthy conditions. They are
safe to take as they are purely vegetable and without
any harmful drug. A few doses will bring better
spirits, improved health and a feeling of fitness.

In these days of tremendous financing, with tlie war costing the British
Empire billions of pounds, with the
advent of a colossal loan to the Allies
uf live billions uf dollars to be raised
by tlie American Government, we have
to re-adjust our comprehension to enable us to realize ami grasp tho Mil
significance of these figures. An American billion is merely the addition
of-three ciphers lo a million— in words
--one thousand millions, and yet there
havo been barely a billion minutes
since the birth of Christ.
A striking point is made by the
statistician .when he observes that we
all comprehend the speed of the ordinary rifle-bullet, that is. about half a
mile a second. Now, lie supposes, if
a rifle a billion miles away was shot
al a man (granting that the bullet
would carry the distance), thc Intended victim aud ail his descendants
for twenty-four generations would
hnve plenty of time to pack up their
household goods und move to tlie
other side of the world to dodge the
bullet, for it would nut arrive for
eight hundred years.
If a railway train, proceeding at the
rate of a mile a minute, hnd been, at
the dawn of the Christian era, started
around tin* earth on a straight track,
its object being lo run 1,000,000,000
miles witiiout stop, -U would liave
been necessary fnr that train lo circle
the earth -10,000 times, and it would
not have come to tho cud of ils journey until nearly Now Year's eve. 1028
—sixteen centuries afler Christ was
horn. During its frantic flight It
would liave seen the Saviour live and
die; Rome rise, flourish, and decay;
Britain discovered and vanquished by
the Human legions, ami Loudon nnd
Paris built. It would have proceeded
on its journey throughout the dark
ages. It would have witnessed the
birth of Columbus, the discovery of
America, and have a couple of hundred years yet to continue.
This Is in accordance with the
American calculation of a billion —
the English billion being a million
