mean spoiled foods, hut good materials
thrown away from pure wr.ntonnesii or
through gross ignorance. Half loaves
of stale bread, shanks of meat, vegetables or all sorts, and so on through

We are told by authorities that we

mayor after the appeal of the mltii-*-

Cranbrook will have the pleasure of
hearing Skovgaard thc great violinist
from Copenhagen, who ls today without a peer as an artist. His playing Is
full of temperament and his technique.
Is something of tbe most wonderful;
anybody has ever heard. According to ! Mufliad WigCll. Wynndel, B. C
the  (ierman   newspapers  Skovgaard' ^^^^^^^^^^-
be very favorably with |m^BK*^.^Mm^—m^^^^^^^^*\^*~m
Ole Bull and Paderewskl, just as the — — »■
selections he plays are the most delicate compositions ever performed at
any concert.
Skovgaard never tires his audiences
with long classical compositions: ho
chooses his program in such a manner
that he can have an opportunity tn
show people, both the marvelous tone
he can entice from Ills wonderful
St radivarius violin, as well ns his
great technique.
The past two years liave been the
most successful of Skovgaard's career.
lie lias not only captured London and
Berlin with his preeminent performances of the masterplores of the
violin, hut the British Isle and Germany as well.
Tho tickets range In price from i*0
cents to $1.00. The prico Is unusually
low when the merit of the program la
considered. It is not often that Cranbrook has the pleasure of hearing
such nn artist as Skovgaard.

Save those dollars
You can cut down the cost of stump blasting by using
Giant Stumping Powder.
It goes further than ordinary dynamites.
It exerts its strength over a wide area,
cracking, splitting and heaving out the
stumps, roots and all, rather than shattering them or throwing them high
in the air.
It is made especially to suit Canadian
farm conditions by a Canadian Company with many years' experience —
the company that originated all "Giant
Powders."
It is being used by farmers everywhere
in British Columbia. Scores of these
write us that Giant "gives lietter results," "saves money," "shoots the
roots," " resists cold " and is " always
the same."
Get our valuable book that tells how to save dollars on your
stump blasting.   The coupon or a post card will bring it.
