li is with very sincere regret that
wo have to announce the death of so
prominent nnd valued a citizen as Sell)
W. Ityckmaii, wlilch took place in Victoria on Wednesday evening according
to advices received here yesterday.
Mr. Kyckman has been ailing since
Die early part of the winter when bis
life was seriously threatened by n
severe attack upon the heart.
Rallying somewhat with the warmer
weather he and his wife left about one
month ngo on a trip to tlie coast where
it was hoped that he would regain
some nf his former strength. At
first it was thought that this end was
to be pained as on arrival at Victoria
in* Immediately found bis breathing
much improved, The respite has been I
very short lived, however, and on
Wednesday evening last he passed
away having almost reached the allotted space of n man's life on earth.
In the passing of Mr, Ryekman. this
community suffers a severe loss, and
loses one of ihose men in whose hearts
the history aud welfare of the city
was enshrined as u very precious
Having spent the mosl of his life in
tlie cltj of Water down, Ontario, where
he followed the business of painter
and decorator he beard the call of the
west some sixteen years ago nnd came
lh Cranbrook and'imineflintely started
work With the C, P. R. at his own line
of business.
He thus becomes one nf the pioneer
citizens of this district and nny who
hav.' been associated with him
In either early nr hitler days will
only remember him as ,i man
of honor and integrity; a mnn
who loved his home, who revered
1 Is     Cod.     who     worked     for     tbe
i burch and the community and
who could always be relied upon to
give his support to anything that wns
calculated to advance the interests of
hla fellow men.
He wns one of the few men in life
whose strength of character and at-
Irnctivencss nf disposition enabled bim
t > return to the home from whence he
had taken his wife, in order to find
another companion when tbe first had
been taken from his side
Mr Kyckman was firsl mnrrled to
Miss Crosby of Burlington, Ontario, to
whom there was born two sons. Warren, who Is now a medical practitioner
in Hamilton, and Kred. who is a successful farmer in Saskatchewan As
Intimated at the decease of his first I
wife 'i'i' sister look ber plaee and she
has l n through the years tbey hare
h en spared to each other a faithful
nnd devoted wife nnd n very efficient
The sincere sympathy of The
Herald Is extended to (he bereaved
h Ifo and Ihe sorrowing relatives.

The Kditor. Crnuhmok Herald;
Hear Sir- In tho Nelson News nf the
80th there appeared un Item stating I
the crops on St Marys Prairie are in
bad condition and "a good deal of It '
has already been so badly dried up I
that Un- cattle have been turned ln."
Tills    statement, like   many more
which appear iu the Cranbrook Items
published in the News is, to suy thej
least of it. not founded on fact.
The  crops  bave  suffered  from  hot I
winds and gophers but taking them on
nn average they wlll be vastly better
than those In Alberta and Saskatchewan.
A good motto Tor the News correspondent would be "If you can't boost
nt least tell tlie facts."
Yours truly.

The Kditor, Cranbrook Herald.,
Dear Sir.—At the public meeting
culled some time ago for the purpose
of discussing conscription the time
when our men come home wns frequently alluded to. The question crossed my mind as to what "coming
home" really meant to many of these,
men. The canopy of heaven and the
parti) beneath with even an overpowering welcome at tbe station do
not mnke "home."
('ranbrook and tlte surrounding
country has sent a largo number
In proportion to population. And
from where do these men conic? The
mining and lumber camps, tbe isolated
claim In the hills, and tlm lonely bach.
elnr homestead have contributed not
a few.
Many of these men. born with the
wandering font, have lost all connection with their own kin iu the cast or
the old country or at least have lost
all sympathy with the more conventional life. Right or wrong they will
come back to the mountain province.
What to do with these men when they
return confronts British Columbia
to a greater extent than any other
province unless it be New Ontario.
For the very ill there will be hospital service a plenty, and for tlie
si mi-invalid the sanitarium; but the
man with little education and less
money, who has mude his living with
bis hands, where ir, ho tn find a home?
Would it nnt be wise to think and
prepare for these men in some wny
that tbey may keep their sense nf
independence and as far ns possible n
wholesome view of nre.
Cnuld not Cranhrook have something nf r, home ready for these men
when they come. 1 do nnt mean a
barracks or an "institution." but a
headquarters as near a home ns It
can be made wltll living well within
the veterans Income. One of my earliest recollections is of two old men
sitting by the fire "owapplng" stories
of is:!?.    One  wns my  grandfather.
Let this home hnve a large assembly
room, with a big open flre. substantial homelike furniture, plenty of
books and papers and a grumapbone,
Thougli tho bedrooms may necessarily
be small, but sn that nny man who
needs it mny find a place of his very
own. nt a price well within his means.
l,"t the cuisine be good and homelike
and above all provide u tar.teful cheerful woman with a knowledge nf nurri-
Ing ns Mntron. Let these men gn nut
and get n week's work or a mnr.th's
work and be encouraged to do so: but
tiiere will be times when all nf these
men will hnve nerves thnt will rebel
nt the outrages they received "somewhere In France." Tt Is then these
must feel thnt they have some place
to go
And In f> unlet cornet of this home
let there be n tablet In memory of
those, wbo directly from Frnncc have
cone to tbe "Better Home."

Thu manner In which the horses take

to the Intense interest of the plciiire

Dear Mrs, Hurton,—Will you be so

thanks for their kindness in sending
me the parcel which arrived here
yesterday in excellent order.
I may say that the articles contained
were shared among a ward-full of I
patients and were greatly appreciated
by them, especially the Canadian tobacco which is unobtainable on this
Yours faithfully.
Donald Leslie, (Sergt. Cun. Engineers)
France, June 21, 11*17,
Hear Madam. Many thanks for
yonr parcel which I received today.
It Is real good and kind of you folks
nt home to think about us fellows out
here. Aa you all know a fellow is
tickled to deatli to get a parcel out
here and then when he has enjoyed
the contents of it he blesses them for
sending it as It reminds him of the
good old town und the happy days he
spent there, but never mind we're
winning and the end is in sight, at
least, so they tell me, but 1 think it's
like one of those eclipses we read
about, "not visible to the naked eye."
Of course "Fritz" will grab a few
more of us before they speak tbe glad
word "peace" as there nre sure to be
some hard feelings between tlie Hun
and ouralves before that happy day
and a few more trenches to be taken
from him. However, as we say in
good old Canada, "we should worry.*'j
But say it's pretty grim work at
times but there's that old silver lining nnd if my luck holds and the silver lining lasts long enough for mc
tn get one of my feet on the platform
in Cranbrook. well, they can start
another wnr. but - nuff said; I don't
see many of tbe boys out here ns
there are very few of ',om with tbe
7th. Well. I must close, again thanking you nil for your nice parcel whicli
yon know was enjoyed nnd hoping to
see all my Cranbrook friends ere this
year dies. With every good wish to
you nll nnd the good old tnwn.
Sincerely yours.

Food conditions in Canada are becoming serious. The need of the hour
is well expressed by Stephen Leacock,
Professor of Economics, McOill University, who writes thnt; "The key to
the situation, as far as we ran unlock
it, lies in individual thrift, ami individual sacrifice. Every man, today,
was consumes any article or employs
any service not absolutely necessary,
aims a blow at his country. Save
every cent. Live plainly. Give up
every non-essential. Hise early, work
liiird. and content yourself with a bnre
living. The man who does this, if he
uses the saved money properly, is doing war work for liis country. Bill

The press of the different cities on
the Chautautiua circuit speak emphatically iu praise or the excellence of
lhe programs offered hy this wonderful organization. Attention is directed
to the offerings appearing In tills issue. A moment's consideration will
convince anyone that something en
tirely oul of the ordinary is offered.
Even the '•get-Up" of the advertising
Iter is an evidence of Ihe thoroughness which seems to be the motto of
Chautauqua. There is snap, bite,
punch iu the stuff, and though people
may say that good wine nepds no advertising, still, one can p.ut more
drive into something wlilch really jus-
Hfies his praises, even in an advertisement, than he can Into the notice for
some humbug or sham.
It is a good sign when people come
around and ask on what syllable does
ihe accent fall iu tlie word Chautau
qua. For information's sake, It may
he said to be ou the second. The ori.
*:in of the word is In doubt. It is
from the Indian, and there is a Chautauqua Lake somewhere in the eastern states.
The Hawaiian Quartet is proving
smh a tiii with the public that Cranhrook has tn luolt out for an epidemic
' of ukeleles, This four syllable affair
is supposed to be tlw nutlonal Instrument of Hawaii and was only recently discovered. In the hands of an
ameteur it has nn equal as au apparatus of torture. It looks like a baby
■ guitar and appears to be innocent
enough. It has four strings—mostly
out of tune. The proper costume to
assume when playing the uke is a
shredded wheat kilt. Tlie performer
must be of tlie female sex to make a
proper Bensation. She then sings—
mostly out of tune like the uke—the
famous dirge of the old-time female
cannibals nr Hawaii. *'Vke-puke-dolli-
balH-foola." Some ameteurs learn tlie
whole o( one chord on the uke. A few
learn two. None learn more before
they die—and they die young, but not
too young for the peace of the community.
It may lu* well to point out tbat the

When Women are Weak
Women who feel weak, languid and depressed—
who look pale and dull-eyed, and have lost appetite and fresh looks—need a tonic that will
purify the blood, help the organs of digestion,
regulate the liver and bowels, and st lengthen
the system.   It long has been known that
are a blessing to weak women, for they quickly correct
womanly ailments, improve the appetite, purify the
blood and re-establish healthy conditions. They are
safe to take as they are purely vegetable and without
any harmful drug. A few doses will bring better
spirits, improved health and a feeling of fitness.
