Fittingly Celebrated In Cranbrook
Overseas Club Entertain* tbe
School Children
Victoria Day was duly celebrated
In Cranbrook, the Overseas Club entertaining the children ut tlie Rex
theatre to a picture show Interspersed
witli patriotic BpeeoheSi and holding
a big dunce iu the evening at the
Auditorium which was well attended.
The officers and men of the 285th were
the guests of honor in tiie evening.
The Kootenay Orcliastra provided
good dance music.
In the afternoon, tiie children of the
Central and South Ward schools
marched iu procession from the Central school to the Rex theatre, where
they were entertained as the guests of
the Cranbrook branch of the Overseas
Club, it being customary for the Club
to take this means annually of honoring Kmpire Day, and of bringing home
to the children the meaning and Ideals
of the same,
From the school, headed by the
officers and men of B Company, 225th
Battalion, assisted by Mr. J. Fingal
Smith with his bagpipes, the procession proceeded up Cranbrook street,
across Hyde St., In Garden avenue,
thence down Baker St. as far as thc
Y.M.C.A., there turning back, and
round by the post office up Norbury
Arrived at the Rex, the soldiers
halted and opened out. forming two
ranks through which the children
marched. The streets were crowded,
as practically the whole town had a
direct Interest In the procession. Here
and there one could see posters advertising a film dealing with the life of
Edith Cavell, the martyr nurse, and
one could not help thinking of the contrast between our rosy, smiling children and the poor little underfed and
lltreated Belgian children. Thank God
we live in Canada.

Wm. Hewson, who was recently
wounded In France, In a letter to his
brother here speaks in very warm
terms of the splendid work of the
nurses ln the English military hospitals and of the hard work they are doing. He says they are also treated
most kindly by the many ladles who
visit the hospitals dally bringing gifts
of flowers, fruit, and smokes, while
the convalescent soldiers are taken for
long motor drives and welcomed into
tho homes of the best people there. The
ladies there believe that nothing is too
good for the boys who go out to fight
the battles of the Kmpire. and show
tholr appreciation by every means in
their power. Private Hewson left
Canada with the 4Sth but transferred
(o the 29th Battalion, and was wounded in the left hand. He has lost the
use of the hand at present and does
not know whether he wlll recover it
or not. He hnd an exciting time getting to the dressing station, and was

All things being equal the consumer
naturally trades where the best service is obtainable. Most people would
prefer to buy and eat dairy butter if
they could be sure that the price and
quality would retain some semblance
of uniformity, and that they could
rely on getting it without fall. But
most people ring up the grocer or
butcher for some Inferior foreign butter because they know that tbey can
rely on getting a neatly and conveniently put up product without fall.

The most successful recruiting
meeting of the campaign was held In
the Auditorium last Frlrdoy evening
and ten new recruits walked up
to the front and were sworn In, A
happy choice of chairman waa made
iu Judge Thompson, After the meeting was opened by Uie singing of the
Maple Leaf in chorus Judge Thompson
explained thut the purpose of the
gathering was not only to recruit for
the 225th, hut to re-orgnni/.e the 107th
Regiment, which bud been almost completely depleted of men hy enlistment
for overseas service, to hear Private
Bryant, a returned veteran, tell of his
experiences, and to have a good time
generally. A splendid musical program was given during the course of
the evening, and refreshments served
from time to time.
In introducing Sergt. Bryant, it was
stated that he had beeu granted Ills
strii>es no later than the day previous.
Sergt. Bryant has a pleasing style and
makes a very successful recruiting
speaker. After telling briefly of his
experiences lie made a strong appeal
to the men to join thc 225th, to put
B Co. up to strength. The 225th Is the
Ilrst chance the Kootenay men have
had to make a name for Kootenay.
The boys from Cranbrook and Fernie
in otlier contingents have mado a
name for themselves and Canada, now
R ls up to the men toft to enlist and
put Kootenay on the map.
Lieut. Brechin Is another successful
recruiting speaker and warmly seconded Sergt. Bryant's invitation to
recruits, His allusion to tin* Black
Watch Tartan, to Nelson's historical
call to duty, and to the British bulldog spirit called, forth vociferous
cheers. "Onco we get a fair show we
can put the Germans on the run every
time" says Lieut. Brechin, and concluded with nn invitation to all the
eligible men present to "join In tlie
march on Berlin, for that's where we
are going,"
Lieut. Staples explained the need for
re-organlzing the' 107th, which had
already served such a useful purpose
In providing men for overseas service
who had some knowledge of the rudiments of military training. Every man
would be accepted, and drill would be
held regularly. Lieut. Staples thought
It should be an easy matter to get the
local company up to strength again.
The call for recruits brought the
boys up to the front by twos and
singly. When the century mark was
readied the enthusiasm knew no
hounds and a good start was made on
tho second hundred, a total of ten
recruits being secured, who are; Guy
Russel, Fred Olson. W. .1. Finlay.
Frank Wright, Walter Soden, N. B.
Barnhardt, John Mom?worthy, Angeio
Lazzar, John Donavtna, Arthur Kemball.
Over thirty signatures were also
obtained to the call for recruits for
tlie 107th, and an active canvas will
be made later to fill up the ranks.

I Special to the Herald)
Victoria, B. ('., May 16.—Announcement was made today of the decision
of the Government to bring down n
special estimate before the close of
tlie bouse of $200,000. whieh Is to be
used this year to give assistance to
prospectors, Administration of the
fund will he in charge of Hon. Lorne
Campbell. Tills assistance Is part of
the general scheme of the government
for aiding mining men of the province,
particularly the small miners and
prospectors. The importance of the
project has already heen discussed Jn
the house by L. W. Shatford, member
for Similkameen who took up the question at considerable length, urging
tliat assistance along this line be provided.
Where It is found that a prospector
has opened up* claim which shows
signs of good values the Minister of
Mines will send out an expert to investigate the property thoroughly and
If his report Is favorable the government will consent to assist in the construction of roads or trails to enable
the claim owner to get bis ore out. Tlie
government will be prepared to tiny
up to one half of the cost of constructing sucli roads or trails and the $200,-
000 fund Is for this purpose. It Is believed that this decision on the part of
the government to render very material assistance to small miners aud
prospectors, who by reason of being iu
remote districts cannot move their ore,
wlll do much to stimulate the mining
industry In the province.

Thc recent monthly letter issued by
tbe Canadian Bank of Commerce con*
tains a timely word on the neresrlty
of encouraging a greater spirit of
thrift In C-mtr'a. The .lenn says:
' "Tiiere are many evidences that the
■ public are not co-operating ns fully as
; hoped with the efforts of tlie Qovernment to encourage thrift. Large quantities of merchandise are being brought
j Into the country that cannot be classed
i as necessary, as evidenced by the lm-
I portation of artificial flowers to the
ivalue of $433,771 during the eleven
months ending February last, as much
as during the preceding twelve months,
i Automobiles, musical instruments.
; fancy Bilks and soaps are being Imported on as large a scale as ever.
Such a demond for non-essentials
could not exist if the public were seized with the seriousness of the existing situation and of the necessity for
, husbanding our resources to the last
penny. Lives have been and are being
freely offered in the cause of the Kin-
iidre, and while this splendid voluntaryism continues It remains for alt
i who are debarred by sex. hy age or by
; circumstances of any kind from making the supreme sacrifice, to husband
, the power to resist the enemy hy
thrift of every description, and it is
I the duty not alone of the Government,
but also of the business leaders of the
nation, to see to It that tlieir Influence
ils exercised every possible way to foster thrift, in order that thO savings
thereby effected may be placed at the
1 disposal of the nation."

Canada here, and his charming wife,
ulso to welcome In Mr. C. H. Hurcourt
who has heen appointed to fill Mr.
Wedd's position.
The entertainment was held In the

A 825th story in brief:-A local doctor was examining a recruit. Said
the doctor, "Vou won't lie accepted;
you have a had knee and you won't
he uble to run." Recruit, "God bless
you man, I am not going to run, It's
the other fellow". We saw him the
other day in khnki.
Mr. A. Beuttle has been quite sick
of late but Is uble to move around
Waldo hoys go to Michel on Mav IM
to play ball.
How NOT to get recruits-The otll-
cor should get lhe hold of u single
young man, preferably lu coinpuny
and say: "Going to join, young fellow?" The lad will likely say In reply
"Not yet". Then the olllcer should
say :"1 think you are a slacker! but,
hah Jove, the Knglish Government is

In so far as the social world ol' the
old historic burg was concerned last

meeting at which Jim Thistlebeak read
a telegram which came like a bolt
from the blue saying that on account

to represent them In Purllnment lie
had decided to accept and would hope
that Klko, that town that had made
it possible for Idm to sit In tlie front
row ut Victoria, would pnrdon hlm
for the step he hud taken. When Jim
had finished lie looked at the true and
tried and everyone looked like a copy
of last weeks newspaper, the telegram
was from W. 11. Ross, minister of
Lands. We will now sing that beautiful Hymn -No. 23 "Wc Shall Meet but
we Shall Miss Him."
The fact that the Hon. W. R. Ross
is not going to stand for the Fernie
District don't mean that the district
will go socialist as there Is absolutely
no look In for the Liberals— nom
whatever ufter the mess they made of
the Mulligan at the Coast.
