LOOK OCT FOR THE
FEROCIOUS BE A11
Once upon a time a member of the
legal fraternity, n financier, a lumberman and an accountant got together
a camping outfit and hied away to the
wilds for a holiday. The first night
they put up in a miner's cabin and next
day they started on foot to their camping ground. As they had twelve miles to go on a winding nnd difficult
trail the judge began to lag behind, ns
he waB not built for hill climbing nl
a rapid rate. He lind just acquired
his second wind ond It wns lucky for
bun -Hint be did, when he heard the
yell from the leader of tlie party.
"look out for the ber.r". The Judge
turned and the way he hit the trail
wasn't slow. If there had been n
Jack rabbit on the trail it would linve
had difficulty In getting nut of the
way. He sprinted over the smooth
spots and bounded over the windfalls
on the trail like a deer. When he pulled hlmselr up nnd looked back he
could see no signs of a bear pursuing
him, but away up the hill he saw the
other three members of the parly, trying to look sober but couldn't and he
became aware of the fact thnt n practical Joke had been played upon him
It look a Utile while at the flailing imioI
with a trout playing nt the bait to re-
storo him to his usual undisturbed

Give Your Country a Leg-up
SAVE!
Canadian patriotism demands the practice of thrift by
all her sons. The men who are holding the lines at
home are they who are making it easy for the business
of the ccountry to go on with little jar to its mechanism
The steay pulling together of all citizens in the production of goods and in thc conservation of all field crops
marks the thrifty nation. SbtIw* on (lie part of our
oltleens is going to be the greatest Insurant-e we will
Imve In Canada against a period ol depression afler the
war. Tlie combined capital of Ihe individuals who make
the couulny will form a fund of sufficient power to drive
business along in a nioBt stalsfylng way In spite of ihe
prevailing hard times of such period.
The saving mail Is therefore a real patriot. He lias
Canada's Interests fundamentally at heart. May Ills
Irllie Increase In these days when wealth is piling up under tlie spur of war-time efforts. Save because- It hits
both ways, lt is high form of patriotism. And in gives one's country a leg up in a critical time. Put by that
extra dollar now. The long procession of thrifty dollars
will make a line that will not waver—Hlndenburg or no
_Hindonburg.

Never in the history of Cranbrook
was there anything to surpass the
dance given by tlie Anny and Navy
Xmas Cheer Club, at the Auditorium
last Friday. To say that it was a decided success would be putting fl
mildly; it was a howling success in
every way
It seemed tike 'ye olden times' tu
see such a large aud happy crowd gathered together within the snoctous
portals of the Auditorium the.itre.eveu
the balcony being comfortably filled
with onlookers.
The hall waB ono blaze, of glory
from floor to celling, and was thc admiration of everybody present.
Dancing commenced at 9...0 o'clock,
and continued until Ii o'clock,
and even then there were a large number who were quite sorry when the
orchestra finally struck up the "Home
Sweet Home."
Tho music wbb supplied by the Kootenay foiu'-piece orchestra, assisted by
the Cranbrook orchestra, "The James"
one man orchestra from Marysvllle,
and the Chenus Bros. Swiss orchestra
from Wycllffe. Tho musicians r.re to
be highly complimented on the excel
lent music rendered--their waltzes
were dreams and their one-steps full
o* pep.
Tho supper committee had their
hands full feeding the hungry, but everything went off without a hitch.
The refreshment booths were continually handing soft drinks over the
counter.
The young ladies of the Junior Red
Cross looked very charming and nuat
In their Hed Cross costumes, and their
baskets of posies were soon decorating the belts and button-boles cf everyone present.
Her Royal Highness Trincers Zarit
was very busy during the evening in
her grotto, telling the past, present
and future of her patrons, and was
the means of netting u handsome sum
for the cause.
During tlie evening Mr. .1. 1*. Pink,
chairman of the dance committee,
spoke of the pari Crnnbrook was playing In this great war. He snld that
well might Cranhrook be proud of her
glorious lads across tlie water, and
proud lo of those nt home, wh responded so generously to the numerous patriotic societies.
During refreshments, Mr. J. P.
Guimont. president of "The Soldiers'
Comfort Club," made the announcement that it was the Intention of the
Club to turn over the proceeds of
their dunce to the Army and Navy
Xmas Cheer committee.
The dance on tlie whole was everything that could be wished for and the
committee cannot be too highly
praised for the excellent manner iu
which tlie program was carried out
from start to finish, ('lose on $600.00
were realized, which together with
the Soldiers' Comfort Club funds, will
bring the total to over $800.00.
The committee whh to extend a
vote of thanks to Mr. Geo. Leusk. for
donating tlie hull, the Kootenay .Cranbrook, Wycllffe anil Marysvllle orchestras and to Princess Zarn, for
tlieir services, lo Miss h. Gamble, who
so kindly relieved lhe orchestra at
the Rex theatre, and to Mrs. A. A. McKinnon and Dr. King for their special
cash donations, in fort to ever/body
who helped to make the dance such a
splendid success.
There will bo a big show given in

BOOZE OR NO BOOZE
Rev. Hillis Wright scored the provincial governmeni on Sunday night for having a law on the statute book that thoy made no
attempt to enforce. Tlie people had carried a prohibition law.
a law that was to put the liquor business in the ditch and pour all
the booze in (he sewer, but tlie law was nol accomplishing its
purpose. Booze is still on sale and on tap. the worst features
of the business are beiiiK maitained and the only elements of
restraint and benefit have been done away with. What else can
he expect? Thc government must run with the hare anil hiinl
with the hounds. The law will remain on Ihe statute book because the prohibition sentiment musi be satisfied, The law will
not be enforced because the liquor element musi not lie antagonized,
ACQUIRING MERIT IN "VET WEATHER
Like every other community there are a great many fair-
weather Christians in Cranbrook; the proportion is probably
neither more or less. However there were quite a few who
braved the ruin slorni on Sunday evening and turned out to
church.
Those who were without umbrellas, of course, acquired more
merit than others—of course the man who swiped his neighbor's
bumbershoot did not acquire any merit at all, but he did not gel
quite as bad a ducking.
One man was heard to remark. "Ah, that's a fine rain, but it's
a pity it did not come at the beginning of the season and not in
the end of it. "Croakers like that made one tired. If it's
dry, its to dry, or dry when it should lie wet; if it's wet, it's too
wet, or when it's wet it should be dry. Know you not, oh man,
that nature is blind, and deaf and dumb, without, feeling or sense
of smell. She don't pretend to be possessed of a spark of intelligence—man is the only intelligent being that Ood has ever created on the face of thee arth.
Nature produces tlie dry weather, but man must distribute it
according to IiIb needs; nature produces the rain, but man must
open and shut the flood gates lo suit his convenience.
The sun kisses tlie bosom of the ocean and fills tbe air with
moisture: the wind carries this moisture over the face of the
whole earth—ii is for man to cause it to fall when and where
he wants it.
Although man has been living on the earth for a good many
thousand of years, rain-making has not been made a study except by a few. Elijah was one of tlie most successful rain-makers
of whom we have reccord in histroy, but his researches were along the lines of execess—he could not produce tlie happy medium—he brought on excessive drouth or excessive moisture.
There have been rainmakers among the aboriginees who live in
dry climates, but they have not been very successful, because
they have based their experimnts on superstition and not on
knowledge. In our own day there lives a man who has been able
to produce rain, but he has not been albe to control it. His
name is Hatfield and the last we heard of him was in San Diego,
where he was engaged to break up a dry spell. He succeeded
so admirably that he broke up all the reservoirs as well and
caused a flood. He is now serving time for malicious damage
to property.
The Christian nations of the world have not made a study
of the art of rainmaking as they have been taught to believe
tir.t the Creator has reserved that power himself. Man has con
tented himself with utilizing the water after it has fallen from
the clouds. He has confined the water in reservoirs and built
up irrigation works at great expense. But if it is permissible for
him to do thot there is no reason why he should not regulate the
waterfall from the clouds. He will learn how to do that by and
bye and when that time conies Cranbrook will be the most delightful place of residence In the world.
The natural course to proceed in this branch of knowledge as
well as in every other branch is from the known to the unknown,
from the easy to the hard, from the simple to the complex.
But what Cranbrook needs now is an irrigation system and il
is up to the government to provide it
A PROVINCIAL LEADER WANTED
British Columbia is the premier province of Hie Dominion
but it lacks a premier—a man of vision, who can see tlie greatness and the glory of our future. A luan who can formulate s
policy that will develope our wonderful and unlimited and varied natural resources In the interest of the people and distribute
the products of Ihe industry of its inlmbianls more equitably,
He must also be a man who will be able to gather around him
a cabinet who will help him carry out such a policy.
There is no country in the world Ihat can have as high a
standard of living established for its people ns British Columbia.
Our ocean; our lakes, rivers and streams, are teeming with
fish—edible, palatable, valuable as a commerlcal product. The
most valuable fisheries In the world lie within the bounds of the
province of B. C.
Our forests are magnificent; there is no virgin timber standing
any where in the world more extensive or more valuable. We
have almost a monoply of aeroplane spruce; we have extensive
areas of fir, cedar, white pine, larch and many other varieties
commercial timber.
There are 20,000,000 acres of agricultural land within the
province, capable of producing a revenue of one and a quarter
billions of dollars and supporting a population of a million families. Land that will raise in profusion anything that can be
grown In the temperate zone and many products of a semi-tropical variety.
Minerals, these bald-headed old mountains stand guard over
Iron bounds chests full of valuable minerals, both precious and
base, metallic and non-mctalic—gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc
coal, sixty different kinds of valuable mineral ores.
The call of the wild goes out to the big game hunter, the tourist. Nature is to be seen in her most lovely and in her most for
bidding moods. The towering mountain peaks, the deep gorges
the rushing mountain torrents, the magnificent waterfalls, the
limitless, silent recesses of the forcsls, all call to (he brave, t
hardy, the venturesome as no other place on earth can do

dozen or so mineral properties are being developed, and but a
scanty welcome is given to the tourist to come mer and see us.
There are untold riches In our natural resourcos, but they are

in ihe rock, Is of no valuo to ns. can do nothing towards establishing a standard of living or towards making our people, happy

complex or simple. Our politicians choose to give u complex
answer and there is nothing doing except whnl can Ih- absorbed
by favoritism, dictated liy political exigency.
ECONOMIZING WITH A VENGEANCE
The Oliver-King aggregation of spendthrifts sealed in the
chair of state at Victoria, have at lasl taken a tumble to themselves and have begun to economise.
Their extravagance emptied the treasury, undermined their
credit and made it impossible for them lo finance the affairs of
the province and they took the most absurd way of raising the
money they required—they decided lo sell out tlte farmer. This
fact leaked out some time ago and Ihere were a great many protests against it. No attention was paid to the many letters
written.
The law of tlie land and of British fair play provide that before a man can be sold out for arrears of taxes an advertisement
must appear in the newspaper published and circulated in lhe
district where the sale is lo take place.
Now the Cranbrook assesment district is a very large one, embracing Pernie, as well as Cranbrook. it also extends over two
provincial seats, Fernie, held by A. I.. Fisher, an Independent?
Liberal, and Cranbrook, whicli is represented liy Hon. Dr. King.
Minister of Public Works.
Party politics should not enter into this question at all. but it
did—It was the controlling influence. Fisher had not a ghost
of a show of re-election without the vote of the miners and he
could not get that without Ihe support of the miners' paper, so
he made a bold bid for the support of the miners' union paper
now published at Fernie temporarily—resurrected only a few
weeks ago, and which is to be published in Calgary,. Alberta
as soon as the publisher can afford lo remove it. Twenty-
five hundred dollars of the farmers' money whose lands in' t'tiis
district are to be sold will lie used for tlieir removal-expenses, unless the paper is outlawed as a Bolshivlki propogandlst before
the date of the sale and then tbe money will lie used to bury it.
Dr. King knows he has lost Cranbrook and has already lie-
gun a flirtation with one of Ihe Island seals—Saanich perler-
aiily—and Cranhroolt. to whom the doctor owes tlie very breath
he breathes, is to see his face no more.
It would seem reasonable that the doctor, upon the eve of his
withdrawal from the city that lias elevated him to the position
of Minister of Public Works and has upheld him in his ambition
to reach the premier position iu lhe political life of British
Columbia, would show his appreciation by doing something for
the building up of the business interests of the city, instead! of
tearing it down. And that lie would recognize what the far
mers have done for him and not sell them out. without giving
them a show for their glass alley. But such is the political game
as it is played under the present regime.
But what has all this lo do with economy. Well, the tax sale
list was to have been published in both a Cranbrook and Fernie
paper, so as to give everybody a chance, bid on lhe ground of
economy the Cranbrook paper, that circulates generally through
out the district, was cut off and the Fernie paper that circulates
principally in Alberta, and where it does circulate in 13. C. has
a circulation among miners only, the great majority of whom
do not own any land al all, but are only tenants on coal com
panles' properly, lias been chosen to advertise the sale.
The Herald naturally protested against such a gross piece of
injustice. II sent a telegram to Dr. King explaining the situation, and received a reply from his secretary that Dr. King was on
ills way to Cranhrook, and we had lo pay for that bit of inform
alion CO cents for the telegram. That is. we wired at our own
expense to the minister and received a reply "Collect.,. Economy
No. 2 The next thing we are likely to hear of is that the govern
ment has paid two or three thousand dollars to another pro
German organ to prim notices to bo sent lo everybody doi'.g
business with lhe governmeni Ihat whenever they mal<e'l->iiy
enquiry of any department of Ihe governmeni Ihey must encloTe
a three cenl stamp for reply.
.MAYBE EISIIER DID NOT SEI,I, HIS Slll'l.
Some people are under lhe impression thai A. I. Fisher, M. L A
for Fernie, did not sell himself body and soul lo tlie Liberals. II
may be Ihat he did nol sell his soul. There is such a thing as
having a soul too small to have any intrinsic value. But the
Liberals may have bought it just the same—they have bought
more than one pig in a poke since they came into office. For
instances they have-bought a political railway, paying for-il
twice its value and even now negotiations are on foot, (o dispose
of it for a song, the conditions of operations to be the same as
those that have been made popular throughout Canada, what
ever losses are sustained in operations are to be paid for out of
thc public treasury and whatever profits there are will accrue to
the operating company. It may be cheaper to have it operated
that way than to have it operated by the railway department under the Hon, John Oliver, minister of railways, who would build
a railway to the moon, if he could only utilize tlie mfioi.bcans
as sleepers. Did you ever see Honest John's railway map? If
not write for one, but be sure to enclose stamp to prepay postage.

when ho said—
"Either the Civilian population must go short of many
things to which it is accustomed in times of peace or our armies must
go short of munitions and other things indispensable to them"
XJOW, the only way we can
possibly live ni) to that obligation is by going without in
order that our soldiers may have.
For the money we waste is not

clothing, shot and shell that are

dollars are of no use to the country
if Hoods and services can be secured

everything in our power to relcase

WHETHER it be food, coal,

Big Thrift rrjre.
It is for every one of us to say hdW much patriotic endeavor,
how much loyal sacrifice we will make by savins our money,
by "doing without" so that each day will sec a surplus to add to
our own nmlthor.nl ion'ii strength.
The Canadian i>ross is well to the
faro IikIIio campaign to iiromo«> the
HaviiiR both of materials and money.
Mr. John M. Emrle, manager of the
Canadian Press Association, mentions
h us au interesting coincidence that
on the very day that the Thrift Cum-
pniRn was launched fu the ncwpa~>crs
of Cnniula the news print paper com-
mlttee of tho Canadian Press Association sent oul i" nil papers a long
list of suggestions by which paper may
be saved, and n resulting saving effected in labor, materials nnd transportation.
Canada uses a large quantity of
news print, but milch less per capita than does the United States, in
this country the consumption is i:\000
ton- per year per mlllhm of the population; whereas In the United States
the War Industries Board recently
issued ;'ii order reducing the consump-
tioi, of news print in that country.
No -ncli action has been taken in Canada as yet; but the news print paper
committee felt that every economy
possible in the use »[ paper should
be effected, notwithstanding tho fact
that, even after tho new regulations
have gone into effect in the United
State-, the per capita consumption
of paper in that country will lie much
higher than it is in Cannda.
iiiniiiiiiie Unnecessary Copies
Ttfe ideas for economy suggested to
publishers are of two kinds. First,
the discontinuance of wasteful practices in building up circulation that
have manifested themselves through
the keen competition of certain dailies r-o get circulation at any cost. Along
■tiiis line many suggestions have been
mutiy with the view of eliminating
Wtttffu] circulation, without crippling
tlie newspapers,
Another line of policy relates to tho
size nt newspapers. Recommendations
Bavo been ntnde for reduction., in slxe
ranging from five per cent in the case
tor sni-ill papers, to (10 per cent in tlie
case (if Sunday editions utdug ovor
)!.*.() columns Ol reading matter, comic
anil other fenlures, etc. Tills would
mean the eliminating or reducing of
many comic and other features and the
foi denslng of news reports into shorter form. In other words, the competition between papers would then he
one of quality rather than of quantity
of matter printed.
The Canadian press in adopting
these suggestions is following up its
camp.iign to promote saving by practising it.
In keeping with tills thrift campaign we have decided to cloan up onr
subscription list. Therefore if you are
in arrears and do not wish to renew
or have tlie Herald continued to your
'address, kindly notify us to that effect and send ns the amount you owe
"—tiie date to Which you are paid appears un the label on your paper each

We don't want to deprive you of the

compels us to do bo. If you find that

Good Value and How to Get it
YOUR interest, as a member of the consuming public, and
ours as Canada's largest manufacturers of shoes, are
really identical. They may be summed up in a single phrase:
"Quality Sliocs at Fair Prices."
A fair price today is a higher price than usual, because thc
cost of every item of material and labor which goes into a pair
of shoes has increased greatly and is still increasing.
In order that you may continue to get quality at fair prices,
we shall feature in advertisements certain specific shoes which
we know will give you good value. From our knowledge and
experience, we will suggest to you the best methods of buying,
whether you select shoes of our manufacture or not.
We ask you to buy for service rather than merely for style;
to go to a reliable dealer, and to look for the manufacturer's
trade-mark on the shoes. By so doing you may be assured csf
good value for your money.
