nationalities. Thnt was a bald, plain
statement of Germany's patriotism
Tolstoi hnd said, "Patriotism Is a
crime." He was a world-citizen ami
spoke in a sense which was not meant
to be taken literally. A little boy in
Canada when he said his prayers nf
night was In the habit of winding u)
his prayer with this plea: "Oh. l-oril

Germans." That was a sort of put

Mr. Dudley thought that real patriotism lay somewhere between thes,
widely diversified opinions. He recited the instance of a Y.M.C.A. mar
who enlisted In Montreal, a man whe
had never thought of such a thing
until war broke out, a man who was
not carried away hy the love of excitement or any Intense hate for IK,

hcurt. Thai was the real kind ol
patriotism.
Mr. Dudley gave some description of
the work of the Military Field Service department of the y.M.c.a.'s of
Canada, devoted some time to a few
remarks on the local situation and
asked for lhe support of the citizens
generally for tlie local Y.M.C.A
through this time of stress.

that all Canadians will regard
as privilege any assistance

kindly undertake the rc.-ipon-
(ilbillty of appealing to the
people of your province and
obtain the assistance of your
press towards this end, appointing central committees
if not in existence. 1 think
that through united Canadian
action we ran do splendid
work along lines to great advantage of the empire and at
the same time something that
will help those who, as you
know, have made an enormous and pathetic sacrifice
tliat can hardly be estimated.
I believe all Canadians are
ready to render some sacrifice for the Belgians, who,

are  homeless and  starving."

OVERLOOKED
ln n nicely bordered paragraph
prominently placed on the front page
.if Saturday's Nelson News was conveyed the tidings that Hon. W. J. ilowser and Hon. W. It. Ross "will leave
in n few days for a brief trip to Kootenay  to  Inform  themselves  of the
needs of the district, and also to visit
the Doukhobor settlements."
In Monday's news appears the Itinerary of these gentlemen, which includes stop sat (irand Forks. Trail,
Hossland, Brilliant, Nelson, Fernie
aud Cranbrook; the return journey
being made by Spokane.
To say that Creston is disappointed
in not having a visit from the ministers while tliey are down tbis way
"to inform themselves of the needs of
tlio district," Is stating the case mildly.
This particular little district lias
several little matters that should he
brought to the attention of both ministers; matters tlmt Mr. Hoss and Mr.
Howser cannot very well be correctly
informed of at Nelson or Cranbrook,
or any otlier point.
Just why tlie ministers should dud
it necessary to stop at both Rossland
and Trail, whicli are less than twenty miles apart, and not feel It incumbent upon them to make a visit between Nelson and Cranbrook, n
spread of 1110 miles of country (in
which Creston is centrally and In
otlier respects advantageously situated) Is a trilling mysterious, to say
the least.
Conservatives, Liberals and Socialists alike have not forgotten the
pass-up Creston got when tlie Redistribution Commission appointed by
the provincial government was liuld-
'ng sessions iu Kootenay, and so soon
ifterward to be again overlooked

NEWSPAPERS
The newspaper situation in ('ran
hrook Insofar, at least, as thn Herald
Is concerned seems to hnve at last
got down to a permanent foundation.
Kor some time past residents In
tiie divisional city wore not quite sun
whether the place boasted of one
newspaper or two, or two In one—as
was the case for one week—though
to the credit of the Herald he lt snld
It never missed an issue In all the
times of stress.
Now comes the announcement that
, Messrs. Thompson aud Sullivan have
leased the plant. Mr. Thompson was
formerly In charge of the business end
nf the Herald and will continue In thnt
capacity, while Mr. Sullivan wilt look
after the news and editorial part of
tlie works. Mr. Thompson has the
husiness ability nnd If he of the Irish
cognomen can deliver the goods successfully also the future of the Her-1
aid Is reasonably safe.
The Herald has always been and is I
today one of Cranbrook's most valu- j
able' assets, nnd  It Is of the  most j
vita) puhlic importance that tlie paper
In* kept going.    No center occupying
the place Cranbrook does fn Kootenay ln particular and llrltlsh Colum-
Ma Iii general can afford to be with-!
out a lively newspaper. i
Here's hoping that every subscriber
wilt come through with his two-spot'
j    And to think wo let it get away!
It is too much!   Two Hundred Thou-
! sand Dollars (Count 'om) In real sure
regular money!
It happened this way.   Chris, Nord-
i hougen  sat at the keyboard of the
! Free Press Linotype and said nothing
j This in itself was remarkable, as the
J machine is a very present inspiration
j to say tilings.    It is the first lino-
'■ type that  was  ever made  and  has
j little tilings about It that later ma-
j chines never dreamed of.   It ought to
be in the Smlthson's museum, along
with Haynes' horseless carriage and
'urtis' flying machine.
But tiiere it was, and Is, and there
was Chris., but alas, is no  longer.
Well, anyway, Chris, used to sit there
ind say nothing, being taciturn to a
degree.   It is said tluit he forgot how
to talk through long association with
deaf-mutes in a school of thnt persuasion,   He didn't look like money.
In fuct, he and money moved in different spheres.
Vet, right there, Intent within the
same silent Christopher, were the
possibilities of a "touch" that would
enable n man to give winter the hilarious salute. If we only hnd him
now! Why, beauteous reader, Chris.
Nordhougen is now the possessor, in
his own right, title and Interest, of
tlio enormous, not to say stupendous,
aggregation of collated wealth bespoken.
It fell on him. Somebody died and
—bingo, Chris, is a fifth of n millionaire, llut the sad part of it is to
think lie is no longer hero, wliere we
'might help him spend It. Yea, verily where we might even Bpond it for
him. For what will he know about
spending coarse money like thnt?
Wo should be awfully nice to Chris
If he were here now, we should. Tn
fact, we should mnke quite a chorus
of friendship for Chris.. It would
be: "You know me, Chris. Don't
you Chris? Eli, Chris? Remember
how I helped you to change that
heavy magazine, Chris? Some old
load of Junk, that, wasn't it? But I
don't care, so long as I wus helping
out a pal. 1 know you'd help me out
If ever you got n chance. I didn't
mind that sprained wrist. It was all
right in a couple of weeks. What's
a sprained wrist, between friends?
Those were the good old days two
summers ago, weren't they, Chris? j
Remember how wo used to go Into the
King's and get a friendly drink? I
remember how you used to insist on
paying, Just like you, always genor-
ous and anxious to do something for a
pardner!"
