Hert Murgatroyd left In a draft the
day before yesterday and Ashton \
Powers left this camp at the same time
for France. Wp have heard recently
that Harry Banfield and Bert Black !
of Fernie have been killed but you i
will know tbat by now.
I have ahout reached tbp limit of

hns snowed almost six inches besides
plenty of rain and cold winds which
sure was hard on the troops and what
1 mean, muddy, but we sure gr.lned
our poinl and the Canadians made
some uame for themselves in the history of the greal  war.
.Many of my pals dropped on nll
sides of me but the Lord must have
been with me as I consider myself
awful lucky to survive it all. We are
at present taking a little rest before
starting out again and only hope I
pull through O.K. as I wlll sure huve

The Russian Empire is in a chaotic
condition at the proaent junction of affairs. This confusion and uncertainty
Is only to be expected. It Is a natural
result of the sudden acquisition of
power In lhe hands of a people so long
under the yoke of a despotic Qovernment, Time will he required for tbem
lo attune themselves and settle down
to the new conditions for which they
were entirely unprepared. There has
to he a process of adjustment to the
new order of things. Never, perhaps,
in tbe history nf the world has the
need fnr strong levelheaded leadership been so vitally necessary as tt Is
In Russia today. The country Is so
vast aud the population so enormous
that the difficulties confronting the
present dovcrnmenl are Inconceivable
to   116,
The result of the contest between
the Council of Workers and the Government will be awaited with trepidation hut it seems hardly likely that
the present strong Inclination for a
separate flieace with (iermany will
prevail. The Allies are battling for
freedom, the Kusslans have tlirowu off
serfdom and when they have had time
to cool down tbey are not likely to
fall victims to the alluring promises
I of a despotically monarchical Germany
Until the German people assert themselves and overthrow their present
Government, the Russians may he
depended on to remain loyal to the
ise of Ihe Allies.

It was only to be expected that the
announcement of a Conscription Bill
would cause much weeping and gnashing of teeth amongst certain elements.
There are unfortunately ln all countries a small coterie of weak minded
citizens who have more regard for
their own personal comfort and safety
than for the safety of the nation.
They will do a lot of shouting and
make much noise, but tbere can be
no question thai the large majority of
the people of Canada will be found
overwhelmingly in favor of the new
Bill. The end of the war Is not yet
In Sight and unless the resources of
the Kmpire are used to the utmost,
nur sacrifices may yet bave been In
vain. Canada cannot side step her
duty and what Is more to the point,
she lias no intention of doing so.
The local newspaper should be regarded us the integral part of the community, and essential to its welfare
and for this reason if for uo other, It
is entitled to receive the active support
and assistance of every individual aud
business firm  in the district,
A live local newspaper in any go-
uheud up-to-date city is more than an
important factor It is r necessity and
the standard of the paper ts In proportion to the support given.
There is sometimes a tendency to allow our trivial animosities to submerge our higher Ideals of citizenship.
The time to sink these bitter party
feelings has surely eome. These are
tbe days for the big things of life when
alt men and women should get together and pull together and stick
together on nll matters of a constructive natnro pertaining to the welfare of
the District In this way w«* can all do
onr small bit towards upbuilding tbe
British Empire, The immense undeveloped resources of Kast Kootenay
are needed, nnr hidden mineral wealth,
our lumber, the production of our
agricultural lands are badly wanted.
Tbe opportunity Is ours, The local
newspaper is a necessary factor. It
can help to get tilings going hut If It
Is to be a vital force. It must receive
adequate support or its usefulness is
What is a local newspaper? It acts
as n focus for Ihe thought of thc community. It is impossible for all the
people to get together and tell each
other what they are doing and what
they are thinking about. But tbe
newspaper is here so that the people
can get together In their actions and
thoughts. It is a duty of a newspaper
to tell its readers what Is going on
locally, and it Is the duty of the readers to supply the newspapers With
paragraphs of news nnd with articles
of public Interest.
And as the newspaper Is in the
above way a centre of news and
thought, It is also a bazaar for the
buying and selling of tangible articles.
It is nn eutropot for the gathering
together and distribution of news,
thoughts and merchandise.

Patriotism l« the will to servo one's
Loyalty and Patriotism are nourlj
akin, hut are not one aud the sume
One may be loyal to his country
and yet   lack In  true  Patriotism
The loyal person may not be bo willing lo go to this extreme in .sacrifice.
While Patriotism calls for the fullest sacrifice for one's country, ii
does not necessarily follow that we
must all fight. Indeed we cannot ull
fight, for many reasons,
We must, Inaddltlon 10 [fighting-,
carry on the business of the Empire,
We must manufacture; we must give
food; we must keep up transportation
and do the many other thing:-, required to keep the country in good
work ing shape. Wliere a person's
talents and physical ability will give
the greatest good results, Is the place
for every one.
It follows that the most physically
fit are the ones wbo will be mosl expected to do the fighting, hut even
here the mental qualifications must

very fit but at the same time have peculiar mental qualifications that will
Justify the authorities in keeping him
at home nt lhe business of running the
However tills clnss will be so small
that we may depend upon it thai a
patriot, if physically fit, wlll orfer for
service, and leave the duty of selecting him for other and perhaps more
suitable duty, to others.
Iu this way then we may assume
that patriotism in Its first fruits will
result in the offering a physically fit
body for the far front of battle ln the
service of his country. A mnn who Is
of military nge and fitness nnd will
not do this may be loyal but be Is no
A Patriot takes a very wide view
of things in the whole world. He sees
the sufferings of others nnd Is willing
that his country will do its proper
share of alleviation and If war Is
necessary for his country, to help in
tbe maintenance of this be will offer
all his ability to forward this object.
He does not simply stand by and
wait the events of circumstances. He
becomes a part of the circumstances
in speech and action or both as his
abilities may qualify hlm.
A patriot does not stand hy or sit
In the inactive chair of greasy plenty
while his fellow citizens do the work
of fighting.
He will not let paltry excuses stand
In his way of doing his duty.
He will not say "I have my father;
my mother; my wife or my children
to look after. He will expect the
authorities to do this In a reasonable
measure and will go forth to fight.
Tho pacificist may be loyal but he
at the same time, in a great crisis may
bo con torn ptt bio in his arguments.
I nlways view these with suspicion and regard them as having
some ulterior motive that may be far
from good. Tbey may cover up tlie
sin of cowardice by the cloak of pretended pacificism.
It Is not always the brave man
who alone does his duty but the patriot always does his duty. The patriot does his duty even If In fear and
My time is short and I must hurry
to my conclusion, so thai If possible
I may Impress on your young minds
the true spirit of patriotism, but In
pnsslng 1 must also Impress upon you
your duty to those who have gone
forth to battle, not only to fight for
their own ideals nnd liberty but that
In the coining yenrs you will be able
to have your Ideals and your owi.
You must care for the wounded: you
must be sympathetic and you must
endeavor to further their prospects
and be'n them in every way you can.
It will be your duty to help see that
the patriotic soldier who enlisted for
the wnr Is not the "outcast" of Ibe
years following the war.
1.   Patriotism  is a willingness   '
serve your  country  lu  any  capacity
specified by tbe authorities that ynur
physical and mental ability wlll permit.
'-. Patriotism will not hold hack
until a nice snap comes along.
3, Patriotism will condemn the
slacker; the shirker and the coward.
1. Patriotism wilt not let anything
stand iu the way of any service we can
i'i. Patriotism is not greedy and
grasping for money made out of the
bravery and gallaiury of our soldiers
at the front.
t). Patriotism Is one and the same
thing as cervlce.
7. Patriotism Is not confined to
one cluss or age but should and does
abound iu all daises nnd at nii
nges, from the hoys nnd girls of early
youth to the very old and feeble.

-Miiy';; "lUvorywoman's World," pays
lhe following tribute to the women
munition   workers:
"Probably the most Interesting, as
it is also the most painstaking, Is the
way In which she has actually gotten
down to hard manual work In the
foundries and facto .-let* which cre
turning out war munitions throughout Canada.
Here she lias learned a newer end
larger meaning of the terms "citizenship," and "workmanship," and here
also has she earned and learned by
the sweat of her brow what it means
to be truly patriotic. The War has
truly given her equal place In the
service of the nation, although lt
still withholds in four Provinces the
fuller franchise of a share In tho
Government. We hear much of what
tbe British woman has done und is
doing; and she has done and Is doing,
undor the pressure of war production,
an Immense amount of work which,
but for her. wnuld hinder the output
of tbe munitions of victory which are
so needful on all fronts where the
greut conflict  still  rages.
In Canada, there are already 8,500
women in munition factories and that
army is steadily Increasing; and notwithstanding the fact that practically
all of these employees were absolutely unfamiliar with mechanical
work previous to the War, they have
demonstrated, not only a mechanical
ability equal to man's, but In some
departments tbey liave shown beyond
question a superiority to the male
help who formerly did the same work
Examples given along this line by
managers, superintendents, and production captains in munition plants

credulity and make any writer who
bas a proper regard for his standing,
hesitate to repeat them—even when
thoy are hedged about with all the
qualifying circumstances that he is
able to view In connection with them.
These statements have all come
from men In high positions us production executives in munition plants,
"I know of a case," declared the
head of a large plant in Ontario,
"wliere a young woman was put on a
machine which had been handled up
to that time by a man who was considered a very fair worKofT Of course,

"After this young woman had been
at the work for a much shorter time
than the man whom siie has succeeded, much attention was called to tho
volume she was turning out—tht-
volume being at least two and a half
times as much work as ho had averaged. Truly, she wns an exceptional
girl—probably the most proficient in
a force of many hundred. But she had
many sister workers who were not
very far behind her. In short, the girl

] going to press we have been unable
to discover the source of the report
Mr. and Mrs, Dexter lived In rranbrook about 3 years ago Mr. Dexter being Principal of the public School,
They left here for Victoria but later
It was learned that Mrs. Dexter had

adlnn Bank of Commerce staff, left
for Orand porks on Tuenday to which
placo, ho bas been transferred as

considerable regret In athletic and
social circles. He took a very prominent and active part In all lines of
sport and excelled principally In
hockey, tennis and bowling, He was
a member of thc executive committee
of tho tennis club ans tn all competitions he usually carried away a good
share of the prizes. Although practically a novice nt bowling ho received
thn gold medal for tbe best average
score In the bowling league for the
season of 1916-1917. As a hockey
player he Is undoubtedly ono of tbe
best that ever donned the steel blades
In this part of the country. He Is a
performer of unusual mien and In
spite of his aggressiveness nnd dashing play he was u perfect gentleman
nt all times and never known to havo
boen penalized for roughing tt. Mr.
Mcllwalne has beeo a resident of Cran
hrook for four years and has many
friends bore who regret his departure,
but their best wisher, will follow him

My Dear Friend.—At Inst I have
plucked up enough courage to settle
down nnd write you that long promised epistle. Really I fool perfectly
ashamed not waiting ynu before now,
hut better late than never, Is quite
true. It must be more than twelve
months ago since Inst I wrote you.
Our I ravels and experiences have been
varied since then, hut I nm thankful
to say I have come through It unscathed. 11 Is twenty-Six months now since
wn lauded iu France but it seems
more. We have done our bit and upheld Canada's name In the various
engagements we have taken part in.
i guess you will have the news by now
of the latest stunt that the Canadians
have pulled off, another featht
our hats. One of tlie strongest, or I
might say the strongest part of the
i German line fell before our boys. By
j the time you receive this Jetter the
! advance' will be old news, but ut
' present It is new. The weather conditions during the advance would have
done credit to the arctic circle; snow,
sleet and rain poured down and this
morning there was between two and
three inches of snow ou the ground.
Talk about sunny France, ye gods!
this country is the limit in regards to
rain, and the mud, you fairly wade iu
It uud practically the middle of April
now. Those great historic batlles of
bygone days which used lo 1 lir 111 our
young blood, whicli wc read about
in school, take a back seat compared
to the modern style of war. Talk
about cannon to Lho right ami lefl of
them, you ought to have heard our
"heavies" during tho bombardment,
it would have done your heart good,
they seemed to be every whore and
they sure wore. Cone are Ihu days
when onr artillery were cut down io
a few shells a day per battery and
when the infantry luul practically no
support behind them. Germany lost
her chance of world conquest then,
when the first Canadian division arrived in Franco the line wus pretty
slim that held Fritz hack, nono know
It better than we do. 1 think we are
the oldest volunteer division in France
only the old regulars I believe were
here before us. We have marked
superiority in artillery though 1 guess
Germany has as many infantry as we
have, probably more, but our boys I
make up for It In nerve and grit, that \
which counts most iu an attack. Us |
the Infantry that bears the brunt of
the fighting always; he is the hero
of this war, tlie man that wins nations
but does not alwayo get the credit for
It. The privations they put up with
Is awful but they are always cheery
and their spirit is really marvelous.
The U. F. C. have certainly, done
their share in the wnr fighting in the
ulr Is a dully occurance and it's some
sport, believe me. Our men are masters of tho air. without a doubt; it's
seldom more than two of the enemy's
planes dare come over our lines. On
a nice clour day you see dozens of
tliem patrolling our lines and Fritz
bus not a chance to come over. Well,
Ralph, It's rather hard to write an
interesting letter ns nll our letters nre
censored nnd I guess you get plenty
war news through the newspapers,
though some of the heroic letters 1
sometimes read in some custom papers from people, hut are really only
a myth to us who know how things
are here. I am feeling fairly woll
considering the conditions of life we
live under. Two years und eight
months of this life takes the host out
of a man and home nnd pence Is the
goal we are all looking forward to.
Canada sometimes seems to mo that
I have seen It In n dream, some far
away country, really it seems years
since I left B. C, "God's Country"
as 1 have heard some of the boys call
It. a good nume for It, with Us magnificent scenery and matchless climate.
1 met quite a few Cranbrook boys
with the 64th Battn.. last fall in
Albert; they arrived just the day before we left there so I did not have
much time to spend with them; some
of tiiem ,1 believe, have gone under
since then; I did not happen to meet
Bill Johns but 1 Intend hunting him
up first opportunity. 1 saw Hugh
ljOgan and Roy Ilossaek in Albert,
Logan, 1 believe, was killed since
then, but I huve heard nothing definite as I have not met the 54th since
then. I met Gordon Cameron the
other night, ho has been out here a
long tlmo, though I have never met
him until now. Woll 'old friend, I
hope you will find timo to write me
a few lines and give me all the news
of the old burg. There is nothing appreciated more out hero than a letter
from a friend. Mall time is about tlie
only bright moment in a usually dull
day. Kindly remember me to all I
know.    Your old friend,
D. MucLennan.
