riiil ul' his bar ami forced It Into Ills
groin, inflicting serious Injuries. Ho
maintained thai tho company was negligent in not having two men al ihis
Job, and In not. supplying] calrbUlo
lamps, ami called evidence In support
of this. The defendant company denied tliat tiiere was serious danger in
doing this work alone and said that he
cmiid have called a mucker to assist
him, and that satisfactory carbide
lamps could not be obtained. The evidence of tlle defendant's witnesses was
to the effect that the company would
like to use carhiih* lamps if good ones
could be obtained. On the conclusion
of the evidence the Judge directed the
Jury that there was no evidence of
negligence in not supplying the carbide lamps but left the question to
them to say whether the plaintiff was
directed to do tiie work alone, and
whether this involved negligence on
the part of lhc company. Jury found
In favour of the plantlff on all points,
and assessed the damages at $2000.00,
Judgment was entered accordingly
with costs.
The Court adjourned on Prldny

Hint of Details
Ottawa,   Ont.,   May   18.—Ottawa's
Interest noM* centres in the details of!
tlie   government's   conscription   pro-
posals and the attitude of the Liberal ■
party. While the government has decided on a policy of conscription, the
details of the legislation nre not yet
completed,   it will take some time to
draft the legislation nud thresh It out j
in the cabinet, nnd it is likely the hill j
will   not   bo   introduced   for   another
week     Ii   Is  understood the government lias decided on the British system of conscription with modifications ■
to meet the Canadian situation,   Tiiere
will be local boards in every district
before   which   every   man.   single   or
married, of military nge. will have to
enroll for national service.
Sinirle Men First
After enrolment the required men
Mill be culled out. As the premier
placed the number of men required
as from fifty to one hundred thousand,'
only single men of a certain uge will
menl  on  employees who come under
the Act,
Mr, Ford Wnsson having received
notico from tlio Chief of Police that
tho wall fronting his lot on Norbury
Avenue was unsafe and In a dangerous condition and becoming a menace to the public safety, reminded the

the necessary repair
Petitions were received from residents outside the city limits asking
for nn extension of the wnter service.
This matter was referred to the City
Engineer witli instructions to prepare
nnd submit estimates of llie cost nf
the proposed extensions.
Mrs. ll. Rondeau wrote complaining
of the lack of street lighting at the
south end of Clarke Avenue. Her complaint Mas referred lo the Flre and
Police Committee with power to act.
The petition of Mr. II. ID. Jecks for
tli" sprinkling of Cranbrook Street
was referred to the Hoard of Works.
The committee of tho Coal creek
Explosion Fund are appealing to the
City of Cranbrook to render them assistance in supporting the dependents
of the victims. The committee report having on their hands 24 widows
and 4!i children and dependents of ten

Dear Sir.—Judge Thompson'-

tho farmer. That would be iru ■ In
normal times—although as a matUr of

leaders tell us, there is a grave food
crisis abend, that Mils is aggravated by
tbo  labor shortage, there  would   not
appear to be any danger of such over
production as would effect the farmer
unfairly.    Of course, ar* n  matter of
economic fuct, it does no', matter whether We cat the 500 ton*-*, cf spuds wo
grow, or sell them for patriotic pur- j
poses, the market price will not be
effected.   We have be. n u:gcd to produce.    We  are  told  by  the  world's
greatest food und market, expert;; '.hat
we are face to face with world hunger.   It behoves us to Bcrew up to a
higher w.ir standard.   Many men are
cultivating their own lots and gardens and that Ik good national service.
Others  are looking for opportnn'tles
for service.   There   are   also   many
young men  In  Cranbrook  whom  we
have, yet to ree doing anything strenuous to help the nation.   I believe the;

cus on Monday to discuss their atti-
tude. The present outlook is that it
will be a Btormy caucus. Sir Wilfred
Laurier and Hon. William Pugsley
both reserved judgment yesterday un-
ni the measures were brought down.
The Liberal Attitude
If Sir Wilfred opposes the proposals,
and hitherto he has definitely stated !
be would oppose conscription, be will
lead a much-divided party. The Applause ul a half-dozen Liberals, led by
Or, Clark, showed Iheir attitude.
Outside of A. K. MacLean, of Halifax, they are all westerners. It Is
understood lho western Liberals al*'
most to a man are In favor of conscription. Mr. MacLean Is the only
maritime Liberal who has given au
Intimation of his position. Party line*,
are closely drawn In the maritime provinces and, as in tiie case with bllin-
guallem, it is likely the rank and file I to the speed limit
of the opposition wlll stand by their I    Pool Room Py
ers. Most of these men were married
men with large families. A large
number of widows and orphans have
thereby been suddenly deprived of
their breadwinners, and great distress
will be caused to the dependents unless monies are forthcoming for their
To help take care of these dependents a Fund is bring raised to be

Dear Sir.—I was very glad to notice
a letter In your issue of last week
from Mr. Bridge, mentioning his success In organizing a girls club, but re.
gret his inability to do the same for
the boys. I notice however, that one
of the requisites for membership of
his girl's club, is membership or association with some relfgfous body.
The club I had In mind in contributing the article to your paper was
quite different, I would bave It opened to the toughest and worst hoys In
the community as well as the members
of the various churches, for the toughest and worst, are sometimes the best.
The "Sissies" and "Mother's Darlings"
wlll he helped by association with the
ragged, rough and tumble boys nnd
girls who have probably just as much,
if not more good in them.
1 notice It is stated that there are
no experienced drill masters, or teachers of games In the city. There must,
however, be some young men who are
fond of games, and out of door life
and who would like to be "Pals" with
a lot of boys.
What Is the Y. M. C. A. doing?
There must be many young men in
that organization who would not only
regard It as a duty to help their young
brothers, but would enjoy themselves
in so doing.
Rightly or wrongly the ministers
and churches are looked askance at
by some people; and the majority of
the people in Cranbrook are non-
church-goers, I*et us therefore take
people us they are. \*et us have a
company or companies of Roy Scouts.
the members of which mr.y. or may
not be associated with any religious

Wounded   Girl   Who   Hesrncd   Haby
From Top I'liu^r -Preyed In
The splendid courage of a little girl
of thirteen during a Zeppelin raid was
rewarded yesterday when thc Lord
Mayor ut the Mansion House presented
her with a gold wrist watch, the gift
of the Carnegie Hero Trust Fund.
She was sitting up with her grandmother waiting the return of her parents, At the top floor of the house a
baby had been put to bed. A bomb
roll very close to the house, causing
considerable damage. She rushed upstairs and secured lhe haby. By this
lime the stairs were rocking and some
of the steps had disappeared. Still
clutching the baby she slid down,
somehow, and got Into the street.
Here In the excessive darkness, all
lights having been extinguished, she
knelt down and prayed. She then
made her way to a hospital, where the
baby was taken Into safe custody, and
the surgeon on examining thc girl
found hor bleeding and wounded, and
subsequently a piece of glass was
taken from her cur.
The l^ord Mayor said: "Such pluck
by a girl of tender years must arouse
a thrill of pride throughout the country.
"By saving the baby she had displayed the spirit of Britain in its determination to defeat the power of Might
against Right.
"By her immediate and tender
thought she had shown all those qualities which had produced In Kngland
thfl Florence Nightingales of the present war, and her action would be the
admiration of the motherhood of the

■Experimental Kami Note.
It will be of interest to poultry
keepers Ihrnitglinul Canada to know
that there is now au export who de-
voles all his time investigating the
diseases of poultry. Hr, A. H. Wlck-
ware, Assistant Pathologist to the
Health of Animals Brancll has been
assigned to that work by lir. Torrance,
Veterinary Director General.
Dr.  Wicltwaro is  by no means n
novice In poultry diseases. Kor several years, under Dr. Hlgglns, Dominion Pathologist, he has devoted some
of his time to the diseases affecting
poultry and has given special attention tn Black Head. Realising (he Importance of Investigations in poultry
diseases, Mr. ,T. II. Grlsdale, Director
of Experimental Partus and Dr. Tor-
ranc > arranged for Dr. Wick ware tn
take up this question exclusively. He
Is therefore now co-opernllng with the
Poultry Division. Central Experimental Farm, where, since last fall, he
has been conducting experiments
along this much needed and very Important  line of work.
Continued attention is being given
to Black Head in turkeys and many
new investigations are being started.
These relate to chick diseases as well
as to general diseases of poultry, Including parasites of all kinds.
The annual losses that occur from
poultry   diseases  and   parasites   are j
tremendous.    No person knows what!
the amount is but it is well Into the
millions   of  dollars   each   year.     Dr. j
Wlckwnre's  work  will no doubt, do
something to eliminate part of this,
but the co-operation or all poultrymen
who have any disease iu their flock
will be appreciated.
As usual communications to the Ex
ii rlmentnl Farm re diseases of poultry
will be welcomed aud with Dr. Wlek-
wure now giving all his time to tills
mailer, even more Information will be
available. Specimens of sick birds
should be sent when practicable und
may be expressed collect If addressed

There   are   great   areas   in   Canada
where tlio  Kuropean  plums, Bitch  as
Lombard   aud   many  others,   do   not
succeed, either tlu- iruit buds or the
trees heing injured or killed by winter.
There are two species of wild plum,
however, in   Canada,  the  cultivated
varieties of which enable one to grow
this  flue  fruit in  very cold  regions.
In  Eastern Canada  ihe common wild
spoeics is the Canada   plum,   (primus
nigral, which in .Manitoba the common
native species is the American plum
(primus anierii-ana).   It is surprising
tliat   trees  of  these   plums  are   not
planted hy everyone having a garden
when there Is room enough to bave a
few trees, as they hear young and hear
abundantly, anil the fruit of the best
cultivated varieties, while not as good
as the best of the European sorts, te
excellent when eaten raw and makes
very good jam when properly cooked.
At the Experimental Farm, Ottawa,
over 100 varieties of these plums havo
been  tested  during  past   twentyeiglit
years- The outstanding or most widely
useful variety of the Canada plum has
heen  found to he the Cheney, a red
variety of fairly good quality whicli
cooks well.    The Assinibolne, a new
variety,   Is   very  promising.'   On   account of its earliness, the Cheney is
particularly useful In the prairie provinces wliere many of the varieties are
too late to ripen.   Few of the American sorts usually offered for sale are
sufficiently early for the prairies, most
of tliem having been originated In the
states of Minnesota and Iowa, where
, earliness Is not so important.   Seedlings of llie native Manitoba sorts are
j now being grown at the Experimental
Farms on the prairies to obtain other
and  hotter  ones.    The  Major  plum.
, which has been brought lo notice hy
■ the Brandon   Farm, is a very early
' sort.
! Wild plums in some parts of Canada do not usually develop well owing
to disease, but it bas been found at the
' Experimental Farm at Ottawa that
thorough spraying evory year will usually ensure good fruit.
