At 10 a.iu. Sunday morula}-, a ser-
•.Vlce wns held in the Presbyterian
.church for the soldiers, at which the
.pastor, Hev. Thomson, and Huv. Mr.
■Clark, of Calgary, were the BpeakerB.
Shortly before the hour for the
•church parade the mayor and three
-alderjoien of thc city of Cranhrook,
.presented each man with $6.00 as a
imark of appreciation.
Long "before the hour appointed for
the departure of the Cranhrook boys,
and amid a steady downpour of rain,
which tu no way dampened the ordor
of the thousands of spectators, crowds
began to assemble along linker streel
and ln tiie vicinity of the C.P.R.
station, to say good-bye and to give
a word of encouragement to the men
who have so quickly responded to
Canada's Becond call. Approximately j
two thousand people were ut the station to bid the boys good-bye and
There were many touching scenes
when the laBt good-bye waa uttered.
but the men showed no signs of emotion, the call to duty being foremost
in their minds.
The war situation Is taking a firmer
hold on the people generally, and
whilst there Is no question as to the
outcome, Cranbrook people are now
realizing what the call to arms means.
Most of the Crnnbrook hoys have
been residents of thc city for u long
time, tu fact the majority of them have
resided here ever since Cranbrook
htti been ('ranbrook, and It was wltli
rehctance that good-byes were said.
Tit-? band discoursed lively music at j
the station during tbe watt for train j

waiting crowd.
On tho arrival of the trnln, which j

Miss Hewitt, n local lady, atld tiie
possessor of a well trained voice, was
. heard to advantage, and merited tbe
round of applause tendered her.
Next In order was a mandolin duet
by Messrs. Stewurd and Scott. These
gentlemen played exceedingly well,
bringing out that softness and mellowness which only master hands can
■accomplish. Tlie audience showed
tholr appreciation ln a generous measure of applause.
Mr. O. Fiedler, sergeant of thc 107th
r-st Kootenay Light Infantry, favored the audience with a song, "Glorious Devon." He was well received,
bul, soldter-likc, never smiled.
Dave Baldwin was tlie next mau up.
Dave Is In a class by himself when lt
comes to getting music from n concertina. Mr. Baldwin seldom uses any
but the most regular harmonies. His
music Ib therefore, easily understood,
and so free from technical difficulties
of performance, that lt Is very popular with tho Cranbrook public. Mr.
Baldwin received tho usual round of
applause and for an encore responded
with tho old reliable "Tlpperary."
R. E. Beattie was the next speaker   CIMMiROOK WOMEN'S

press his feelings. It was joy mingled
with sorrow—joy at seeing the,men so
willingly offer tbeir services to the
motherland, nnd sorrow at seeing so
many men, whom lie had known for
years, leaving Crnnbrook. In conclusion he urged every young man in
tlte city to Join the local militia corps

Davles deserved tho generous &;>-
plause meted but to him.
Sum Macdonald, one of tbe oldest
residents of Cranbrook and a veteran
of the Northwest Rebellion, was called
on unawares from the audience, and
delivered one of the best speeches of
the evening. Mr. Macdonald said this
was n proud moment In his life. He
.mid he deemed It a privilege to be allowed to address a few words to the
men who wero about to leave us.
"Time was," said the speaker, "when
t wns just as full of the war spirit and
just as eager to defend the rights of
England as you men ln front of me.
I came from fighting stock. My ancestors played Important parts ln
battles tbat are today recorded in history. My father took part In the
Crimea." Mr. Macdonald said thut
should It come to pass that an old
man's brigade be organized he would
be the first to join ln Cranbrook. Mr,
Macdonald, for his masterly speech,
was greeted with rounds of applause.
Next on tiie program was an Instrumental duet by Miss Wanda and
Master Vincent Pink, children of Mr.
and Mrs. J. P. Fink. Those young
people are popular with Cranbrook
music-lovers. Miss Fink Is an accomplished piunlst, while Master Vincent
bandies the violin In an able manner.
The instruments In the hands of the
very capable players struck a chord
n tlie heart of most every man and
woman in the audience. This wns
proven by the applause elicited.

C61. Sergt. Henry, on behalf of the
men, thanked the ladles for tbe presents and assured them that every
man was deeply grateful for the kindness shown. He proposed three
cheers for the ladles, which were given
in a right hearty fashion.
Mr. A. Raworth, that Inimitable
comic song artist, was tlte next gentleman called on. Archie has gained

A mistake was mnde in the record of

error was apparently the undoing of
tlu* Bankers, for while they played a
brilliant game during the first hnlf,
they were undoubtedly stale when thoy
came on in tlie second period. Tlte
game for the Ilrst half was very even,
the score at half time being 3D to 114
points In favor of the high school.

Whenever your system becomes run down,

To build uf) this weakened condition there is nothing
equal to Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion.

Recent investigations by the Conservation Commission reveal some
very interesting factB regarding tho
effect of care, or neglect, as the case
may be, upon the life of machinery on
the farm. Between ninety and nine-
ty-tlvo farms, divided Into throe districts, wore visited In each of tho
provinces of .Manitoba, Saskatchewan
and Albcrtu.
in Saskatchewan, out of .11 farmers
visited hy the commission's representative, 7(1 leave all of their Imple-
"nients out of doors. On T,\ ot tho
farms,there were no Implement sheds
of auy description. On 21 of the
farms, sheds largo enough to cover u
part of the Implements were found, in
most cases this being only a buggy or
u democrat, but not on one single farm
was the machinery all housed. Not
one farmer was found who painted his
Implements to protect thorn from the
In Manitoba only 14 out of 94 keep
their machinery under cover during
winter, while 44 claim to keep a part
of It inside. On 34 of the Manitoba
farms no provision whatever is made
for protecting implements, and only
four claim to have done auy painting.
In the three districts visited ln Alberta, mixed farming ls carried on
quite extensively, making more barn
room available, so that implements
are more likely to be protected, but
even here, 37 out of the 02 visited
leave all machinery out of doors.

farmers were visited, every man housed liis implements during winter, although none of these mon do any
