Arc YOU Going to Vote
For Thc Rink By-Law
NEXT THURSDAY, Jan. 16th, the ratepayers
of the City of Cranbrook will vote on the
bylaw authorizing the city council to issue
debeuturea to lhe amount of $3,000.00 to run for 10
years at fl per cent, interest, to purchase the Arena
Kink for use as acurling and skating rink.
The building itself is a most substantial one
and a credit to any city.   It could not be rebuilt for
less than $15,000.00.   As an investment it is gilt
Ah it place of amusement it is something tbe
city cannot afford to be without. It has been
riooded and a splendid sheet of ice for both skating
and curling lias been secured. There are three
sheets of curling ice and a skating sheet all round.
There is fun, real sport and lots of It and a
huge number of our citizens, young and old. male
and female, are enjoying the pleasure it affords.
It is not the city's intention to buy the rink and
then let it run itself, but the curling Ice is to be
rented to the curling club at a reasonable figure
and a charge is to be made for skaters. Neither
curlers nor skaters expect the city to operate the
rink free of charge. They are all willing to pay
for their fun and under efficient management the
city will have full action for their money. The
rink will be a revenue producing property, the
same as the waterworks, the telephone, the electric
light or other municipally or privately owned enterprise for the benefit of the public generally.
A skating rink is just as essential for the
development of the young as the school or church.
The ideal combination is a sound mind in a sound
body and the skating rink helps to produce the
sound body. It is the most healthy of all the winter exercises.
Take a walk down to the rink of an evening and
see for yourselves and be convinced that you will
lie making a good investment by supporting the
Enquire of those who know and you will be satisfied that the rink will be one of the city's best

next. Don't stay at home or treat the proposition
with indifference. Your vote may be just the one
that's wanted to carry' it.

a thoroughly human man and boast-
fully American In all his thoughts,
words and deeds.
He was democratic and pronouncedly pro-Ally during the
course of the world war now so
happily ended In favor of the Allless.
Ho declared for war on the side of
the Allies early in 1016, at the time
or the sinking of the Lualtanla and
could hardly be kept .in leash, so eng-
cr was he to spring at the throats
of the murderers of Innocent women
and babes.
He was a great friend of tlie newspaper men: he believed iu publicity.
Thu newspaper fraternity have lost
a valued friend in his demise,
one nf (he things that Is believed
to have contributed more than any
other to the colonel's breakdown was
the death last fall of his son, Lieut
Quentin Roosvelt, tho aviator, in
action in France. 1'roud of his son's
achievement, Co. Roosvelt bore up
under the sorrow of his death with
characteristic fortitude. Friends say
that while the father "did not carry
his honrt on his sleeve," lie .suffered
most poignant grief in silence and
tried to forget them by plunging
harder than ever into his work.
Although lie was only fit) years ot
ago when he died, ho accomplished
more than the average man would or
could do in a century.

school, re-opened on Monday, after
having been closed for nearly as

slogan, to make up for the weeks
of lost  time.
Tlie school to some boys and .girls
is like a huge and fearsome alligator
with jaws wide open to swallow
down all the joy of life; while to
others it Is like a fairy palace full
of fragrance and good things to ent;

the long and stinging rawhide whip
.she used as a disciplinary agent, waa
a magic wand. Rut he discovered
that his estimation of thc teacher
did her a great injustice. He was
converted from the error of his ways
by tiie following Incident: When he
wns promoted from one class to another the teacher stood nt the door
to shake hands with and say a woru
in parting to all who were moving
higher up. As the writer was passing through thc door, she took his
hand and snld, "although y*ou caused
me more trouble than all the rest
of the class put together I am very
sorry to part with you," then she
gave him a gentle caress and kissed
him rlghl on the lips that had almost,
In their ignorance, cursed her. He
was dumb-founded J he felt like sinking through the floor, or crawling
through a knot hole. He was embarrassed; in his Inexperience he was
bewildered: hnd such au event taken
place In his life years afterwards he
might have been bold enoughto reciprocate and let It go nt that, hu.
he could only hang hfs head In silence and shame While he thought of
how cruel and unjust he had been

Now boys and girls, make a record
for yourselves.    The  Cannda  of the
ferent to the evils of tiie liquor traffic that were allowed to fester in the
body politic under the old liquor
laws; but under thc ll. C. Prohibition
Act we have most of those evils with
hole! us still, more virulent in many cases
than formerly, and io addition many
other evils beside.
Look ut the situation ut the coast.
The Prohibition Commissioner tn dls-
grtce, the Prohibition committee and
Ministerial Association boiling over
with unrighteous Indignation, lending
themselves to Intrigue, revtllngs, contradictions and other influences that
destroy harmony, happiness and good
will. The Attorney-General's dspart-
nient, the most sublimely ridiculous
Institution because of its attempt to
go forward nnd backward both at the
same time; of its endeavour to swim
on dry land. Tlie government, some
of whom would die of thirst within
24 hours, if the province really went
dry, try to run with the hare and
hunt with tbe hounds — the scent
of an uncorked bottle would be
that is wafted from a piece of
liniburgcr cheese. Liquor bet iiu
shipped into Vancouver by the carload nnd peddled around the city by
tlie bottle and not a policeman aware
of the fact. Admissions by the wholesale that they have sold booze, bought
booze, drunk booze and warehoused
booze contrary to law, but everybody Immune from punishment.
Look at the situation In our own
city. Dozens of places where liquor
is sold and drunk—all kinds of it,
good, bad and very bad. If it is sold
by a reputable hotelkecper he in
pinched and fined or imprisoned, but
the bootlegger; the man who- has no
recognized place of business and who
occupies no place in the business
personnel; he goes scot free. The
man hwo drinks the liquor, who is
Just as much a transgressor of the
law as thc man who cells or peddle:
it, has seldom been apprehended.
Thc old evils remain with un plus
tlie new, and an intolerable position
has been created. A Prohibition Act
may be the right weapon to use to
eliminate the evils of the liquor traffic, but we doubt it. Xo one seems
to know how to use it. If it is right
to prohibit the manufacture, sale and
use of liquor in order Ui eliminate
the evils of the traffic, it is right to
prohibit co-habitation in order to
prevent the evils that result from
indulging the sexual passion, and
there ls only one way known to
science by which that can be done.
But there Is no Justification ror either. Some other remedy must be

Sir Eric said that night after night
British mine-laying submarines had
to proceed through the great German
mine fields, off Heligoland, to discover channels through which German boats left and returned to their
base. The British seamen then
blocked these channel*: with mines.

"I know you will celebrate right
merrily, and you have every justification for doing so. After more than
four years of bitterest battle wo have

and because men like yourself, officers and other ranks of the 54th
Battalion, did not know the word defeat.

not Interfere with your rejoicing.
They would be the last to wish It so,

remark, " We often have accidents,
but I've escaped so far." Ht little
thought he would be next. Yet ha

had to have his arm amputated.

Miss S. A. Wernicke of Hilton,

far Into her finger that it pierced
the bone. She writes: "My hand
became so stiff and swollen that t

got worse. Blood-poisoning developed and extended right up my
arm. The pain wis intense, and I
certainly thought I would lota my
arm, which was In a terribly in-
named and swollen state, and literally covered with lumps, A friend
advised me to use Zam-Buk, which
I did, and lt was not long before
the pain grew less. With perseverance the Inflammation was all

great interest in the affairs of thc

manner in which the city affairs were
carried on, while I do not aim to
criticize but cannot see any marked
growth, and sec ttiat this cannot he

others and reconstruct our city, reach

.d'.tor Cranbrook Herald:
Hear Sir—There seems to he a good
deal of misunderstanding with regard to the reason for asking the city
to buy the Arena Rink.
The idea has apparently got around
that it is mainly the curlers who
want the rink and that ttie curler*: are
the only ones that will derive any
real benefit from it. Different people have complained to me during tiie
last few days that the present arrangement of the curling Ice tn the
centre of tlie rink spoiled R completely for skating or hockey and that if
tlie present Ice was a wimple of what
they could expect tn the future it
would not lie satisfactory. As one
who Is interested in anything that
tends to increase tlie possibilities of
(dean, wholesome sport for both
young and old In our town 1 would
like to put the proposition as plainly
as possible before the ratepayers for
their consideration.
In tiie first place, a public meeting
was called to discuss ways and means
of procuring thc rink for tlie purpose
of holding a Bonspell. If this could
be arranged it would mean tbe bringing of possibly 150 people to Cranbrook for from 3 to 5 days and would
mean a good deal of advertisement for
our town if it could be carried out
At that meeting it was proposed to
ask tlie city to buy the rink and
make of It a public Institution. A
canvas was made of the city to procure tbe necessary number of names
of rate payers to a petition asking
the council to submit a by-law to he
voted on at the general election on
the lfitli of January.
Wliile this was satisfactory as far
as it went, it did not procure thc
rink nor Insure the Bonspell coming
to Crnnbrook and lt was up to the
curling club to make the best arrangements possible with Mr. Levit,
tlie present owner of the rink. The
arrangement made between tiie curling club and Mr. Levlt was a temporary lease of the property till tlie first
or February for tlie sum of $200, It
was considered thnt this amount of
time would Insure the holding of the
Bonspell in Crnnbrook, also give
time for the by-law to be voted on
nt the coming election. If the by-law
passes and thc city takes the property
over lt will naturally he up to the
council to run lt from year to year
as they see (It
But I understand that the suggestion will be made to have the side
walls extended outward so as to
allow two sheets of curling Ice nn one
side and one on the other, thereby
leaving! the centre of the rink for
skating and hockey as It was originally.
If this was done and an athletic
club organized there Is no reason
why curling, skating and hockey
could not be carried on during the
winter and the rink used as a drill
hall for the school children and a
gymnasium In the summer. With a
little shavings on tiio ground, rings,
horizontal bars and trapeze ln place,
it would make a good play ground
during the summer months for both

Press Advertising
Sold Victory Bonds
BEFORE tho war, bond buyers were 'marked men.' In number they were
10,000 in March, 1917—this is shown by the number of purchasers
of the Government War Loan of that date. But in the autumn of the
same year, llieir number increased twenty times—to 820,000! This was
iho number purchasing the Victory Loan, 1917. Last month, 1918—
over 1,000,000 persons purchased the Victory Loan, 1918!
wonderful results were accomplished liy Press Advertising.
Before tlie war one-half of one per cent of onr people bought bonds. Now
quite twelve and one-haf per cent, of onr people are bond buyers. !
Before tlir stupendous amount of
$«7I>,000,000 worth of bonds could bo
sold to onr Canudlan people ln three
weeks a most thorough nnd exhaustive cumimlgn of education wuh
necessary, nnd this campaign was
cirrlcd through by advertising In
the public press. Thc power of the
printed word never bad a more convincing demonstration.
By moans of the printed word,
through thc medium of advertisements In the press of our country.
I lie Canadian people were made to
know what bonds are, the nature of
ihelr security, their attractiveness as
nn investment, and why the Government had to sell bonds.
Every point and feature of Victory
Ilonds was Illustrated and described
before antl during the campaign—In
advertisements. No argument was
overlooked. No selling point was
The result Is that Canadians to-day
aro a nation of bondholders.
They know what a convenient, safe
and profitable form of Investment
bonds are. Instead of one man In
two hundred owning bonds, now ono
Canadian in eight—Men, women and
children — owns a Government Security.
This complete transformation In the
national mind and habits was
brought about by advertising ln the
press of the nation. Press advertising has Justified Itself as the surest
and speediest method by which a
man's reason can be Influenced and
The Minister of Finance acknowledges this.  His own words are:
"The wonderful success of the Loan was due in large measure
to their (the press of Canada) splendid and untiring efforts
(luring the whole of the Campaign."
E. It. Wood, Chairman of thc Dominion Executive Committee having oversight of the
campaign to raise Victory Loan, 1918, said "... The press .publicity campaign . . .
will rank ns one of the most remnrkablc and efficient publicity campaigns ever undersell In any country," and Mr. J. H. Gundy, Vlco-Chalrman ot the same committeo said:
"1 luivc been selling bonds for a long time, but I never found It so easy to sell them as
al this time. The reason is the splendid work thc press hns done. I take off my hat
to the press nf Canada.
Tlie success of Victory Loan, 1918, and the knowledge which Canadian
now possess of bonds are a straight challenge to the man who douots the
power of the printed word, in the form of advertisements, to sell goods-
ant! this applies not to bonds alone, but to the goods you are interested
In selling.
