French Turn Tablet, on Enemy Who  Are  Now  Trapped  In
Douaumont Fortress—Germnn  Commerce   Raider,
Moewe, Im Caught hy Hrillsh Cruiser.
(Special despatch to the Herald)
For the last week the Germans have
boon hurling enormous masses of
troops against the French in an effort
to capture the fortress of Verdun,
and though they havo mado slight
gains at awful cost, the momentum
of the attack seems to be spent, and
It iB likely the French wlll be able
to regain the lost ground.
Two thousand of the famous Brandenburg corps, conslaercd the flower
of the Kaiser's army, are now trapped
In Douaumont fortress at Verdun and
must surrender or be starved out. The
French surround It im all sides. Douaumont has changed hands tour times
ln the terrible German attack on Verdun. Breton forces by a terrific
charge through a perfect hall of Hun
shells, are responsible for the latest
succoss which left tho Hun troops ln
fort, prisoners.
The German raider Moewe, which
has been doing extensive damage to
allied shipping, hns been caught by
British cruisers and taken to Trinidad.
That President Wilson said that
the States entry Into the war on thc
side of the allies might not be ungrateful and might result ln advancing civilization by ending the big war
by midsummer, Is tne reason given
by Senator Gore for his opposition to
Thc President has demanded of
both houses a vote on the question
of warning Americans off armed liners and will accept no compromise.

The annual parochial tea and entertainment at Christ Church on Wednesday evening proved a very enjoyable social event ond was attended by
a large number. An excellent supper
was served by the ladles, after which
a splendid program was glvon, Including dances, Instrumental and vocal

Conservatives Tender Smoker to Local
Representative and Pass Resolutions of Confidence In
Federal and Provincial
Friday evening last Mr. T. D. Caven,
M.P.P., was tendered a smoker before
his departure to attend the meeting of
tiie legislature at the Coast. Ther*
wns a splendid turn-out and the whole
proceedings though very informal
wero most pleasant and enjoyable.
Resolutions of confidence In the Federal and Provincial Governments and
In tho local member, Mr. Caven, werr
adopted unanimously.
Mr. W. B. McFarlane was elected
chairman of the meeting. Various
matters of Interest were brought to
tho attention of those present and discussed very thoroughly, such as the
Compensation Act, the poll tax, the
tax on wood, etc. Mr. Caven made a
short address touching on matters to
be brought to the attention of thc
house and asking for suggestions or
criticisms. Mr. A. E. Watts of Wattsburg waB present and gave valuable
assistance ln drawing up resolutions.
He also spoke briefly givinng Mr.

Telegrams were despatched to Hon.
Mr. Flumerfelt, Minister of Finance,
Hon. Lorne Campbell, Minister of
Mines, and Hon. E. Tlsdal, Minister of
Public Works, It being the eve of tho
election ot the latter two. The telegrams were couched fn complimentary
terms and expressed confidence tn
their ability.
A resolution waB passed advocating
the Imposition of a tax in place of thc
old poll tax, but recommending the
exemption of persons paying other
The taxing of homesteaders at the
rate at 26 cents a cord for wood cut
off their own property for sale was
also discussed, and the following
resolution adopted unanimously:
"That this Association wish to draw
the attention of the Hon. the Minister
of Lands to thc hardship Imposed on
very small farmers or homesteaders,
who are not in very good circumstances and who are trying to earn a living by making firewood, being competed to pay 25 cents per cord. That
this Association think It would be a
gracious act on the part of the Government to give orders that payment
be deferred unttl better times; it
would also be highly appreciated by
great numbers of poor men."
The resolution of confidence in the
Federal Government evoked quite a
flood of oratory, everyone prosent
expressing their hearty concurrence
with the spirit of the resolution, which
was as follows:
That the Central Conservative Association of thc Cranbrook District In
general meeting assembled wish to express their admiration of the manner
In which the Federal Government hns
conducted the affairs of the Dominion,
and especially tn regard to the assistance given to the Mother Country ln
her fight for the maintenance and
protection of the liberties of mankind.
Tho last resolution of the evening,
expressing confidence ln the Provincial Government and In Mr. Caven.
was carried with equal unanimity, as
"Tbat the Central Conservative Association of the Cranbrook District In
general meeting assembled, wish to
express their full confidence in the
Provincial Government, and also In
our representative, Mr. T. D. Caven,
nnd note with pleasure that the Hon.
W. J. Bowser, our Premier, has made
provision to conduct the affairs of the
province with nn able body of business
men, and that the proposed legislation touching the Workmen's Compensation Act, the Agricultural Act, and
other measures wlll be productive of
much good to the whole community."

almost Incredible that they could go
through the various n'lmbers, Including dnnceR, part KongB, drills, plays,
etc. without the slightest hesitation or
confusion, but there was absolutely
no hitch to the program from start to
finish. Just a few days before the entertainment one of the little girls,
Lillian Jackson, suffered a broken
*irm which necessitated a re-arrangement of the donees In which she was
to take part, but ln spite of the very
limited time to rehearse In the new
order, everything went off In good
The program was opened with an
exhibition of physical drill by the
pupils of King Edward School, flrst
some of the simpler exercises by four
very small boys and six little girls,
and then some of the more Intricate
motions by thirteen pupils Including
some of the older ones. Then follow-
cd an exhibition of club swinging
that certainly was excellent. The
physical exercise uud club-swinging Is
a valuable feature of the school curriculum and not only gives thc pupils
the right kind of exercise but re*
lieves the monotony of steady wort
at the desk.
A humorous recitation In which fou?
of the older pupils attempted to Improve the elocutionary style of the

In power always gets blamed when
hard times malte their appearance,
with about as much reason as the
said party will lay claim to most of
the credit when any great wave of
prosperity comes along.
The desire to see the opposition
strengthened was another factor In
the situa'tlon. The lact that not a single Liberal was represented in tho
House, instead of being a source of
strength was a source of weakness to
the Conservatives, for no matter how
correct the legislation passed by tli
1 thero was always the possibility of a
charge of "railroading" legislation

The foregoing along with the campaign of abuse and slander In connection with the Government's submarine purchases, the wreck of the
Dominion Trust Co., and the alleged
exploiting of the resources of the
province, are mainly responsible for
the turn-over.
We have nd doubt that Premier
Bowser will be capable of meeting
the situation as ho finds lt. During
tlie ensuing session of the Legislature
he will have an opportunity to enact
beneficial and constructive legislation, afford every facility for Investigating any responsible charge of
wrong-doing on the pnrt of the Government, and be; uble to go to the
country In the next election with a
platform and cabinet which will merit
and receive the support and ondor*
notion of the electorate.
(Calgary Herald)
Some Brllsll Columbia Liberals see
overwhelming defeat for the Bowser
government as a reoult of the Vancouver bye-election of Saturday last.
But these are tho same Liberals who
have seen an opposition victory in
■very general election In B.C. for
years past.
It will bc a source of gratification
to all good citizens that authority has
finally been granted to authorize a
Kootenay Battalion under Col, Mac-
Kay. The result has only been brought
about by bard persistent work in pressing tho claims of this district, both
Liberals and Conservatives working
hand In hand with thc one object in
view. Had it not been for the determined and continued efforts to impress upon the Department at Ottawa
the claims of this dlstrfct tu recognition the probability is that Kast Kootenay would still have heen used as
the recruiting ground for outside battalions. It ls estimated that at least
three full battalions have been recruited to date iu Kast Kootenay. Kast
Kootenay will now hnve a battalion
distinctly its own even though the
boundaries are not precisely the
boundaries of the riding. Our own local militia regiment, the 107th, will
be largely the nucb us of the new unit,
and the officers and men will be mainly from this riding, and entirely from
this district.
Tho next step Is to see that the battalion Is recruited to strength with as
little loss of time as possible. In
pressing the government for authority
It was urged thnt the battalion could
be raised "In short order." It Is now
up to us to make good on this representation.
This district has made nn enviable
record In the number of men enlisted
for overseas service, but there are
still many men physically fit who are
available for service, many of whom
we believe have been waiting for the
opportunity to go witb a distinctly
local company. This opportunity Is
now offered, and wc have every confidence tbat thc young manhood of the
district wlll readily and quickly respond to the call to nerve their King
■nd Country.
In Canada the call to nrms Is n matter of choice with each individual; in
Qermany It Is a matter of obeying orders from military authorities, the Individual has neither the choice as to
whether or when he Joins the colors.
This ls a war to preserve and maintain
the rights of the Individual, and no
sacrifice, even that of life itself, is
too great to attain tho desired end.
When not only King and Country, but
the Liberty of mankind ts threatened
with destruction and our services are
needed, lt should be considered a privilege to "do our bit."
(N. Y. Kvening Post)
Canada's increasing financial sacrifices for the prosecution of tho war
hear out the repeated assertions of Sir
Thomas White, Minister of Kinnnce,
that the Dominion Is ready for the
greatest exertions to relieve the Mother Country. An additional wur appropriation of $250,000,000 Is being
isked for, bringing the total raised to
$■100,000,1)00. This for a country whose
m mi ul expenditure before the war was
about $L"*0,000,000, is answer enough
to those who saw the overseas dominions' chief reason for loyalty In their
linnncta! and maritime dependence upon the Empire.

Incubation. The advantages of tht
natural method include tin; Important
of Its being inexpensive, close attention Is also unnecessary and a
small breeding pen will supply frequent settings of fresh eggs. While
-iilting, hens should be cooped separ-
itely nnd encouraged to leave the nest
mee daily for feed; hard grains only
being supplied. Frcsn water should
he within reach at all times; grit nnd
charcoal are also desirable. While
opinions differ with regard to moisture being supplied to eggs set under
hens, good results hate been obtained
when eggs were sprinkled occasionally and dipped in warm water on
eighteenth day.
Hens should be given too few rather
than loo many eg>;s und when hatch

the Instructions for that particular
machine should he carefully followed
and when a hatch proves unsatisfactory, be quite sure Hint the machine
has had proper care nnd attention and
was tilled with hntchable eggs before condemning the incubator.
Shallow dishes ()f water may be
placed under tbe egg trays until the
machine Is finally closed up and thc
addition of a little vlncgnr to the water during the Inst week has a tendency to make the shells more fragile
at hatching time. Whether moisture
is advised or not by Incubntor manufacturers, it has been round necessary at this altitude and a number of
poultrymen consider the best results

After experimenting with several

Two or three inches of sand or earth
makes a good scratching floor and cn

material for litter.
After the chicks have been confined

beef scrap should also be supplied, but
very sparingly, mixing four parts of
charcoal to one part of beef scrap.
Charcoal should be given very liberally; the charred bark from stumps
being an easy method of supplying

It Is impossible to estimate how
many chicks are needlessly lost every

lisease cannot be cured but can be
avoided by careful selection of absolutely healthy breeding stock and keep-
hip young chicks scrupulously clenn
and dry. "
The programme outlined for enrly
care of chicks calls for considerable
time nnd attention which cannot always be given where poultry keeping
forms but a small part of a farmer's
operations, but results have proved
that it Is time well spent and where-
evrr profitable poultry is desired, nothing Is more important than getting
the young stock properly started.

England. It is the shortage of ships
more thnn a shortage of cars that Is
causing the tie-up now existing. Bank
managers and men who are responsible for the operations of large concerns all agree thnt tho present business outlook Is satisfactory and that
the contrast between things as they
are and as they existed a little morc
than a year ago ls, In some cases at
nny rate, startling.
"The chief official of the Standard
Oil Company in the West told me
that he visited ono or his agencies In
tho early part of 1915 and with his
representative at that point—It ls
somewhere on the pratrlos—-he cnlled
at tho local general store. There he
ho found the wife of a local rancher
with a little sickly baby In her arms.
She had exhnustcd all persuasion to
Induce the storekeeper to allow her
some $3.50 worth of flour nnd groceries. Ho assured her thnt, much as lt
pained hlm to refuse, he had to bc
just to those who had trusted hlm with
the goods, for which, he explained, he
had not yet paid. Tho poor woman
excused her persistence by saying
the baby wns 111 for want of food, and
turned to leave the storo. The local
agent for the Oil Company knew her
and her husband and asked her what
she needed. She told him—a most
modest Uttle bill or trifling matters,
but all In all to her and hers. He
made out a list of requirements such
as would carry her and her family for
half a dozen months, and having signed his name to It directed thc goods
to be sent to her home. The look In
that woman's eyes was moro than
thanks to him. Of course, there Ib a
sequel to it. It Is this: The other day
the husband of that woman went Into
the ofllce of the man who guaranteed
the account and laid on his desk a
cheque for $8,600, the price of his
wheat. 'I want you, Mr. X," said tho
rancher, 'to pay yourself out of that
cheque, first of all, and before I pay
a soul else.' 'Nothing doing' said X.
'Go up and deposit thnt cheque ln
the bank and then wrsuo your cheque
to the store for the amount ot the account, ub If you were a millionaire.'
So Bald, so done. After a while the
rancher came back. Oo jou consider,
it would be aa extravagance tar st.
A large shipment of the famous
Lidway Make
just received this week. The
prices are very reasonable and
the quality is excellent
Mr. X., to buy a Ford car and so save
horse labor coming Into town.' 'I don't'
said X. 'Come along and I'll see If
I can't get you a discount off the
price of one for cash.'
"That Is how sudden prosperity
works out in some cases. It works
differently In others. I saw a woman
In Medicine Hat, plainly a Bohunkess.
She weighted about 300 lbs. and was
clothed from neck to heel ln a genuine seal-skin garment. I cannot
say she wore either a hat or a bonnet. Better say she wore a creation
of truly awful proportions upon which
the modiste had lavished every fruit
and flower that Eden ever knew and
several pounds weight of other fearful things, the product of a depaved
Imagination. This erection was slop-
lied over the eye of this leader of
fashion, a perfect riot of color. In
her arms waB a child tricked out, covered I might say, In a saffron colored wrap wtth crimson stripes. That
garment would kill a squaw at a hundred yards. Coming closer I notice
that the amplitude of tho lady's swelling proportions had burst the buttons
off the garment of seal skin and that
button number one waB linked up to
button hole number two. Much she
cared. The day was actually warm
and she, poor woman, suffered ns
much for fashion's sake as any of her
more sophisticated sisters. H was
clear to me that her husband's wheat
had enabled her to satisfy her hcrrt'a
desire, maybe the longing of a life-
time. That she was wearing the
top boots of her better half—size 14—
was only a trifle, but It added to the
splendor of the ensemble."

Columbia Method under the Agricultural Act of 1915—of co-opefatlve
financial assistance for agricultural

In view of the fact that the Government of this Province Is taking steps
to borrow 91,000,000 with which to put
the Farmers' Loans Act into immediate operation, Mr. A. E. Watts' talk
Bhould be of great Interest to all
farmers, more especially too as the
opening of tho Creamery here will
create a demand for the keeping of
cows which many small farmers wlll
be unable to secure without some
form of Government assistance.
A hearty Invitation Ib extended to
