Thursday laBt hy the pupils of. King
Kdwal'd'a Sellout.   It was au HRlbltlOllS
effort for such young purformors but
thu on tiro performance was carrlod
through without u hitch, and Ihe am!-
leniN- were enthusiastic atul genoroilB
In tlieir applau80. The finished manner In whicli even tho little lots took
their parte reflects much credll upon
fje ability and patlcnoo or their teach-
orn aa well uh the ttptnoas of tlio
pUpfla. Tlie COSttimlnC und stage-settings did much to carry out the illusion* and with the dainty little elves ;
and fairies prancing and cavorting
around the audience were carried back
to childhood days when fairies wel
roally and truly a reality.
When all thoso taking part did ho
welt It Is difficult indeed to single out
Individuals for special mention, hut
we cannot refrain from drawing attention to two budding young artists w
aeemed particularly well adapted
the roles they took. Norah Pownall
as "Nick Bottom, the Weaver," took
the part like a born comedian nnd kept
tho audience In roars of laughter
while she was on the stage. Dick:
Spurway as "Puck." aptly portrayed
the mischievous little fairy who seemed to delight in all the trouble which
his mistakes caused, and his light and
airy tread was a real treat.
The dancing hy Marguerite Caven,
of the old-time donees, while tlto
Clowns' Dance by Noroji pownall. Wilfred Uoo, Alox. Nlibot, Harvey Dixon,
Norma Wallinger aud Kennetli Camp-
ball, brought down tho house
laughter.
The Cranbrook Orchestra rendered
much appreciated music during the
Intervals. Tin* accompaniment for the,
dnncos was played iiy Mrs. ClioVrlng-
tim, and for the part songs by Miss
Roberts.
All thoso taking part in the enter-
tnlnmonl are pupils of tin* King Ed-
ward's School, a private school con-
ducted h.v Mrs. Cherrington and Mfss j
Cherrington, nud It is an institution
which Cranhrook Is fortunate to have
In Its midst. Cranbrook is the only
western city outside of the large centres which Is able to offer the advantages of a high-class private rand
hoarding school such aH the King Edward's School.

The members of the Cranbrook Bund
gathered at the home of Mr. T. H. Kay
' on Monday last to do honor to their
' leader, .Mr. W, II. Kussell, who is
shortly having for Maeleod where he
has purchased a bttsineHs, and presented him with an address and a
i purse of gold. Mr. Kussell organized
tlie present band a year ago tliis win-
1 ter, almost entirely of beginners, and
has taught and conducted the baud
I during that time without any salary
1 or remuneration of any sort. The
1 band made good progress and were
abi# to accept any engagements whicb
were offered last summer and this
winter. An unusual feature of the
present band has been that the public
of Cranbrook have never been solicited
for subscriptions, the entire funds required being raised frum engagements,
monthly dues from members, and the
proceeds of a big dance given last
fall. They have been able to buy tbe
music necessary and to purchase several new Instruments, and are in fairly good shape now for equipment but
have room for several new players.
Tho resignation of Mr. Kussell as
leader and President was accepted
with regret. Tho resignation of T. II
Kay, wbo is also leaving town and who
bas been Secretary of tbe band, was
also accopted with regret. The band
is fortunate in having some ono else
who is willing to fill Mr. Russell's
onerous position, Mr. r. A. Parker being elected President and leader, and
Mr. D. A. Kay being elected Secretary.
The band will be continued under the
new leadership, and Is heartily deserving of the support of tlie public.
After spending the evening in social
chat and music, the new President
called the gathering to order and read
the following appreciative "address,
at the same time making the presentation of a purse of gold:
Cranbrook, B. C, Feb. 19, 1917—
Dear Mr. Russel!:- It was with very
sincere regret tliat we learned a short
time ago that you had decided to leave
Cranbrook, and we have gathered together this evening to give expression
in a small way to the high esteem and
regard wo have for you.
When the band was organized a
year ago and you consented to teach a
bunch ot beginners, some of whom did
not know the simplest rudiments of
musfc. you assumed a task which
would have discouraged most men.
It speaks volumes for your patience,
your knack of getting along with tlie
boys, and also for your ability as a
leader, that you were able to keep the
hunch together und make sucli a creditable showing as we have the conceit
to think we made on tiie various occasions that the new band lias appeared
In public.
We know it has many times been
a discouraging Job, but you stayed with
the game, often at great personal inconvenience and without any financial
reward whatever, much as you were
entitled to It. The year's record of
the band, run absolutely without any
solicitation of public support, is one
to be proud of and if you ever want
any recommendation as a band leader
just refer them to the members of thc
Cranbrook Band.
On behalf of the boys, and with our
best wishes for your future success
and prosperity, we ask you to accept
this little token of our regard.
Signed on behalf of the Cranbrook j
Band.

wish to express my thanks to the many

Thu segregated area on tlto hillside
ovi rlooking Cranhrook, which for so
lout; has been au eyesore and a re-
proach to the citizens of this city,
has at lust heen closed up on orders
j from tii.' Attorney-General's depart-
I ment at Victoria, as announced lu our
! news columns last week. While there
I .ire still a few conscientious support**
! ers of tin* segregated area idea the
consensus of opinion among the decent ami honest people of the present
(lay favors the abolition of all sueh
quarters with their demoralizing and
disease-breeding Influences and ton-
j dcnclos.
Undoubtedly there will bo attempts
to open brothels within the city limits,
j attempts which will  require all thc
vigilance of an alert pollco force to
i combat, bul tho police will have the
i backing ot public opinion In any measures they may tuke to over-ride the
I legal technicalities that may be raised
j through tin* influence of the nrosti
I title's gold.   The Herald has sufficient
1 confldenco in our local lawyers to he
; llevo that any effort to Induce them to
: misinterpret tho law for the benefit
of the inmates of sueh resorts will be
j turned down as flatly as it deserves.
The Brewster Government is to bc
congratulated upon the step they have
, 'alien, and upon tlieir announced In-
1 tentton   of  vigorously enforcing  the
i law  In   regard   to  aoclal   vice.    We
i trust they will go a step further and
\ bring down such amendments and reg-
! illations as may be In tlieir power to
to mako the enforcement of the law
i more  effective,  and   thus  assist  not
only their own department but also
municipal authorities In stamping ont
the evil.

oceans or the best blood of the heroic
Sons of the Empire spilled with pride
and satisfaction knowing that the immortal reputation tbey have won Is
worth tho sacrifice, in destroying military tyranny und preserving tho liberty of posterity.
But or what avail that ancrlfice if we
who cannot fight fail In our duty and
wo penult the dominance of othor
tyrants who p]ol to take the croam
and leave the skim mill; rm* the loiters who produce tin* wealth and tight
our battles,
Through the apathy of tlie German
democracy thoy fell victims to the
military gang who have held tho toiling masses by the throat tor a century,
Through the apathy of "the sovereign
peoplo" wbo think they rule in democratic countries, they let the real
powpr fall into tin* hands of accumulated wealth and mighty eorporatlons
are the "uncrowned Kaisers" and woe
lo those who dare to criticize or to lift
the veil that hides their machinations
A benevolent government now sayi
"all ye people wbo suffer conic and
sit with ns even as un advisory board
we are ready to hearken unto you,
help us then-fore to make laws tli;:'
wlll equally distribute the burdens
yea! and even a small portion of tin
cream shall bo yours."
Some of the leading citizens of
Cranbrook accepted the invitations
and hnve already promulgated some
brilliant ideas for suggested legislation and wo shall have much pleasure
in publishing the details with others
that wny he offered, and mny we suggest that public spirited citizens
should offer a prize for tho besl
amongst the many Ideas that may bc

TOO MANV AMUSEMENTS DURING
TIIE WAR
Dear Editor:   We hear much of this
great war and why peace ls so long in |
coming, but if tlio words of Admiral I
Sir David lleatty be true, I am afraid
j tlio end is a long way off.   After re-
: [erring to the religious movements ln
! Franco and Russia ho Boys, "Britain
I still remains to bo taken out of tho j
j stupor of self satisfaction ami com-1
j placency   In   which   her   groat   and.
| flourishing condition lias steeped her. j
I and until bIic can bu stirred ont of
this condition and until Religious Ro-
Vival takes place, Just so long will the
war continue.   When alio can look out
on the future with humble eyes and
a prayer on hor llpH, then wo can begin to count thu days toward the ond." i
The  writer Is longing to  see  thia :
humble spirit toward Qod with some
of the people In Cranbrook.   For we
cannot think that thoso who enjoy the
ball-room and sucli amusements are
longing  for  this  terrible  war  to  b'
ovor.    Rut 2. Tlm. 3. speaks plain
T think It would ho woll for those that
have bibles to read what It says.   Perhaps a little moro would turn up at
prayer meetings,    But few seem  te
enro of the great suffering of the nun
that liave gone forth.   Why the blood
of husbands, sons and brothers cry .
out to the careless.   IT such a condi-
tton as tlie present existed in tlie olden
times, it would bo nothing short ol
prayers and fasting.    Rut instead of
cleanBlng tlie town T am afraid it's ■
the hearts of many of the people that
need   to  bo  cleansed.    Ry  ono   who i
thinks.

Tho "hockey match yesterday afternoon between t'ranbrook nnd Fernie

standpoint, the visitors winning by a I
score of 9—7. Tho gnme was a close

It looked as though Cranbrook would
win nut. However, the Fernie lads
wero superior lu team work und combination and won on their merits.
The home team had a number of new
