of Mrs. Mllroy, 7!) Aden Grove, Stoke,
So you see I have gone and done It.
. I thought it was better, seeing I stand
a good chance of getting killed, so
that my widow will get a pension
whereas If wc hadn't been married she
would get nothing.
I wonder If you would mind putting the notice in the Cranbrook Herald and sending me u copy or two to
79 Aden Grove, Stoke, Newlngton,
London, and I will be your debtor until such time as I can square it. I
am sorry to say I can't get any separation allowance.
I hope you will make the acquaintance of my wife and 1 wish this
beastly war was over and that you
were going to do so soon.
I got a crack on the arm at Neuve

I have been here, expt .tlnp to go |

They had left for the front before I

Crnnbrook Has Several Catches . of
Thistle Which Should Receive
Immediate Attention
The department of agriculture is
sending out circulars dealing with
the destruction of noxious weeds.
In this connection it might be well
for those tn authority in Cranbrook
to cast their eye about and see if
the city is free from tills annual pest.
The past spring and early summer
we had the dandelion pest. It could
be seen everywhere, in the streets,
In the lanes, on the lawns, everywhere.
Cranbrook has at the present time a
few patches of thistle which should
receive the attention of the proper
authorities. On Durlck avenue
there is a patch whicli Is yearly Increasing. In size and spreading out tn
ill directions, despite the fact that
it Is being cut yearly. On Van Home
street another patch can bc seen, and
which Is also increasing In size every
year. There is enough thistle growing in these two places alone to infest every lawn and garden In the

second overseas contingent. Mr.
Bristow lias many friends in Cranbrook, having resided here for the
past live years, being associated witli
.Mr. Ward In tlie Craubrook Agency
Company. The letter gives a detailed
account of the dally life of a soldier
at the front. In his letter Mr. Bristow brings out the details of the great
buttlo at Ypres. Tbe dare-devil
bravery of the 16th Is described in a
very modest way, which Is very characteristic ot the writer. The average
reader will at once admire the spunk
and grit of the men as they fought on
against heavy odds.
The letter follows:
Somewhere ln France, dune 5th, 1915.
Dear Charlie—
You have no Idea how pleased I
was to get your last letter, as lt has
seemed quite a while since I have
heard anything from Cranbrook. I
will have to ask you to overlook tills
scrawl which ts n little worse than
usual, probably as I am writing it on I
my knee while sitting under u tree in j
an orchard on a French farm.
We have been resting up after some j
pretty stiff fighting but inside of 24
itwenty-fotiri hours we will be on the
road back to some trench within
twenty-five yards of the German lines.
I wish it were possible for uie to picture to you In this letter some of our
recent work, so that you could see It
In your minds as we see it, but I am
afraid that is not possible, as my
pictorial and descriptive powers are
not well developed. However, I will
try to give you an idea of what we
liave been doing recently. As you
know I am wearing kilts and our regiment, the 16th battalion, was back
In the reserve trenches resting up,
when orders came for us to go up and
attack a wood that the Germans were
holding, and to which the left flank of
a British trench was exposed. This
wood being held by the Germans was
apparently the only obstacle to the
advance of the British army tn this
quarter. We went up close to the fir-
fug line, and I shall never forget the
horrors of that night, as we had to go
through an old German trench, recently captured, and then across country
In tho face of the German sky rockets, which helped to show up tbe
gruesomeness of the situation with the
dead  lying all  around.    At last  wc

This Is Hie season of Ibe year when
tho roving disposition takes hold of
•every mother's son tu Cranbrook with
a linn grip and beckons to the forest.
Cranbroolt people are being tempted
dally to don old clothes and sally
forth to the woods nnd streams, where
ono can shout and otherwise proclaim the joy of living. Many men
have already answered thu call of
the wilds. It Is most peculiar but
this ls the season which brings
strange visions to the brain.
The forests seem to have sprung
a single night this week Into the
spring bloom upon which eyes rest
with delight—the light, delicate, green
that wlll so speedily deepen in the
perfected leaf, and that Is to summer's
bloom what promise 1b to fruition.
There ls one road just outside tho
town, known as thc Wattsburg road,
when tho sun Is at such n position In
tbe heavens, that Us light falls ath*
wart the silver of the trunks and
•ttevn through lb* emerald braocke*,
pared with previous acts, are as follows :
(l). Destruction of weeds to bc
within seven days of date of notice.
12). Wliere noxious weeds are
round growing on non-resident lands,
that is, lands that are unoccupied and
owned by non-resident owners, the Inspector may proceed to destroy such
weeds without notice, tlie expenses blurred being assessed as taxes.
(3l. A detailed statement as to expenses Incurred In cutting weeds,
verified by statutory declaration, and
forwarded to tbe Hon. Minister of Finance and Agriculture, the local government agent, or municipal clerk,
after being duty audited, shall he
evidence that the sums have been
duly expended and are assessable as
(4). The penalties for non-mm-
pllnncc with notice to cut weeds hove
been materially Increased, the minimum fine being not less than 125.00,
to be recovered with costs under the
'Summary Convictions Act."
I should be glad If you would bring
these matters to the attention of your
Institute, as it ts only through the Intelligent co-operation of members of
your Institute tbat the efforts of this
department can be made successful ln
dealing with the growing menace of
noxious weeds ln the province.

bad wp realised that we were digging :
a first line trench right In front of thc :
Germans. Morning broke very quietly but it was not long before they
found tbat we were very close and
began sniping Everything went all
right, with the exception of a few
wounded by shell flre. In the even-
ing an order wns given that we were {
to attack tlie wood at 10 o'clock that
nlghl. but this was afterward counter*
I tmtnded and we were kept busy'
strengthening our trenches that
night. When morning broke we were
told to get all the sleep wc could,
which ts nn order we always carry
out, whenever possible, ns tike eating j
we never know when we are going to j
have to do without. At 7 that evening !
orders came to prepare to attack ut!
7..10, and during that half hour seven
men were wounded by shell flre with-
in forty feet of me, and my rifle was
Percy 81ms Wounded
Percy Sims, whom you know welt,
was one of the wounded, and I took
his rifle. Promptly at 7.30, our officer
jumped out of the trench and said
Come on, boys!" You can Imagine
what this charge across three hundred
yards of open ground In the face of
machine gun and rifle fire, would
mean. It was fierce to seo our
friends dropping on all sides, and I
have wondered since If It Is possible
for bullets to fall thicker than they
did. How any of us came through lt
I do not know. We made the wood,
but before we could get in, a ditch had
to be waded; however, we got across
It and rushed Into the wood, and
found to our surprise that the German trenches were only about fifty
yards ahead, so we "dog In" close to
• fence.   I wu fortunate ts getting
In u shell hole close to the fence and
opened fire. Presently a (wounded
man crawled Into the hole wltli me
and while 1 shot he loaded the rifles.
This fellow bad the pouches in bis
belt shot through and his bayonet shot
uft liis rifle. He was very brave and
made me keep on firing instead of doing up liis wounds. After dark he bid
me good-bye and made his way back
to llie dressing station. In the early
hours of the morning we were relieved and moved back to reserve
trenches, Going back is somewhat
dangerous too, as we had to drop to
tlie ground every time they shot a sky
tucket, as tlie bullets soon begin to
fly. We weren't long in getting to
the "lund of slumber" after we got
back to the reserve trenches. After
breakfast we Hue up for "roll call,"
und I believe that this Is the time
that a man begins to realize what he
lias been through, lt ls hell to stand
und hear name after name called and
uo response, or perhaps someone
who knows might say, "wounded,"
"missing," "killed," etc. After the
"roll call" this morning the strength
of our company was sixty out of two
hundred who went in two days previously. As a matter of fact I am the
only one left ln my section of ten, so
you can imagine I felt somewhat tost
for awhile. I shall never forget that
charge, men fatting all around ;and
never a man faltered, although It did
seem as if none of us could possibly
get through.
General Overcome Wlih Emotion
Thanks Men
The general of our brigade came
and culled our company together and
I hanked us for the port we had taken.
He explained the necessity of taking
the position, hut said be was sorry
that the loss of life hod been so
great; he also snld that we hnd a lot
to lie proud of, as two British regiments bad failed to take this wood,
and the Guards had lost 2-A00 men
through their Hank being exposed to
the German fire nt tbat point He also
said that it was as flne n piece of work
as had been done during the wart and
that he felt proud to have sueh men te
his brigade. In fact I never saw a
man so lost for words as he was, he
simply broke up full of emotion, and
Just said "Thank you, boys, for what
yon bate done." After that stunt
you ran Imagine that we all needed a
rest. As we rame down the Hue to
our billets we received a great greeting from all sides. One old British
Tommy said to me as we came down
■'My hut you ore a fine bunch of boys,
and as good as any here."
A Fair Day's Work
To give you an idea of what a person is liable to be called upon to do
in one day, I will glvo you my experience, which I suppose is about the'
average of every man; Helped to1
carry a wounded man a mile and a
half under shell flre; did sentry]
duty; helped to bury a friend at
dawn, and even at this job the snipers kept peppering at us; bandaged
ii]i six wounded men; and then went
through the attack mentioned. This
ought to be enough for one day.
No doubt you would like my Impressions on the war. Well, to me It
looks like u case of munitions, as ar*
ttllery is the only thing that counts;
the more munitions that are used, tbe
more lives will be saved. There ls
comparatively little rifle flre to What
one would expect. Wo have every
reason to be optimistic, but lt Is very
hard to suy as to its duration, although personally I think It will end
a lot quicker than Is generally expected. One understands here what
It costs to advance a tew thousand
yards, and also why the Allies hnve
been playing a waiting game. What
strikes mc very forcibly Is the Individual bravery of men, and the
Insaneness of this whole terrible affair. You con have no conception of
how this country is wrecked, and
what time It will take to get lt all
back again in shape, as lt Is really
one of the finest farming countries
in the world.
I am In the best of health and feeling fine, but this game Is hell (with
a capital H) on one's nerves. Stanley Norton, of Fernie, Is all right and
wishes to be remembered to you. You
will, of course, have heard about
Bob Henry and Jock Thomson being
killed. I believe I will come out alt
right, but ot course one cannot tell.
However, I wlll do tho best I can
while I am on the job. Our battalion
Is now under four hundred strong so
yon can imagine wo have been somewhere near the firing line.

Rev. Cooke this evening.
On the platform beside tlie speaker
were Revs. Stephens, Thomson and
Keyworth. Rev. Stephens opened the
meeting with a few preliminary remarks to thc effect thut the meeting
was strictly non-partisan and that tlie
preachers were only endeavoring
through their efforts iu tho cause of
righteousness to purify politics.
Rev. Thomson then Introduced the
speaker, stating that the sole object
of the meeting was to arrange an in-'
vestlgation.    He had read the "Crisis [
In B. C." and if tlie statements therein are true we are not living under the
British flag bul in a laud of Kaiser-1
ism.   The people must demand better
Ideals,  and   broader   outlooks    from
their political  leaders.    The  present
meeting was preaching the gospel In n
practical form.    He then  introduced
Rev. Cooke.
The speaker of the evening repeated that the meeting was not political
but tliat tho time had come when honest men must stand for and light for
tho great fundamental principles of
righteousness. If men knew their
Bible half as well as they know party
politics they would keep very quiet
during this campaign. If I see a
burglar break into my neighbor's
house and steal everything from the
family plate to tho baby's nursing
bottle, I would be compounding the
crime if I did not Immediately Inform
the police. The whole question before tlie people in this matter now being urged by the Ministerial Union of
the Lower Mainland of It. C. is, "Are
the statements In this pamphlet true
or false?" If they are fulse and tlie
McBride government can stand an
Investigation they will make their position all the stronger before the
people, but If they arc true then the
people should demand that the evil
doers should be brought before the
bar of justice and made to suffer for
tbeir wholesale plundering of the
people's heritage, If tho honest men
of this province wilt stand behind us
then tbe Investigation will be made.
The government newspupers of this
province are ready to shed tears over
the folly of the Ministerial Union of
the Lower Mainland of B. C„ stating
that we have been led astray by Moses

June 24, 1915
The end of tliis month is the final
date up to which tho ti. C .government
duplicates tees paid in to the local
Farmers' Institute. Our Institute hus
had to meet the deficits or maintenance ui' the market and this lias consumed tin* surplus funds of tho os-
sociatlon. Tho cause, however, wc
believe, has been wortli it. It Is very
desirahie tlmt as many as possible who
are interested In tho work of the
Institute und not renewed should at
once send their fifty cents to the
secretary, Mr. F. A. Russell, as if mailed before the first of July it means another fifty cents from the department
und we need tho money lie gives
double who gives at once.
On bohalf of tho directors.

judging thc work of the
gardeners   at   the   Central
practical men and expressed
and satisfaction  at the remained the Ilrst season on new
Sovoral   plots  in   Junior  IV.
and Jr. 111. would put some professional gardonera to shame.
There is no doubt that not only Is
the work that 1ms been so ably carried out by pupils and teachers a
credit to tho school and the city hut
it exemplifies tho wisdom of the trustees in taking up the improvement of
tiie grounds.
The love of nature, to say nothing
of tlie lessons In tidiness und perseverance learned In this wuy must of i
necessity lmvo a life long effect on I
the conduct und usefulness of the j
pupils. Ho muny present duy citizens
are Badly lacking when it comes to
beautifying and improving their own [
home surroundings. Nothing gives a |
place so groat a lift in value, and looks i
bo well to visitors as a well kept lawn
or back garden, and lessons now being learned at school will certainly
have bearing on this mutter in the
near future.
The trustees arc offering a small
shield suitably Inscribed to the clasB
getting the highest average score per
plot on the June scoring.
This lias beeu won by Jr. IV., Mr.;
It. s. Shellds, with an average of:
86.7 per plot. They wilt hold the;
shield till next June. Mtss Richards

average of 83.8. I

the thousands of half starved homeless widows and children eking out a
forlorn existence midst thc ruins of
