Throiigli tlie kindness of Mr. T. S.
Gill the judges of the Senior Competition Home Gardens were enabled
to make the lust inspection or the garden.-, on August 20tit. Mr. (illl furnished unto and driver to convey the
Judges from place to place, ror which
they tender their hearty thanks,
a number of tlie hoys had continued the good  work  begun;   while  In
Home  cases   tlle   gardens   showed     a
great lack of water, and tlie dry, hot   <}
weather had done Us work. *.,*
Orvllle   Thompson's   garden    was  1
found lu   excellent   condition—clean ' li.
aud  neat—all  refuse of early vegetables being removed, and the vegetables showing goixl growth.
A. II. Webb's garden proved tlmt he
bas not been weary In well doing, as
it showed cultivation nnd enre.
James (Cembali's garden, which was
mentioned in the Ilrst report, as having been sown in stony ground, was
still a credit to him.
Joe Stojaek's garden showed labor
done ln keeping it clean, but tlie dry,
hot weather had been against growth.
Harold Hummer's flower garden
was a bower of beauty, with sweet
peas, nasturtiums and other beautiful
flowers showing great attention and
Hector Donaldson's flower garden
showed Hector to have great courage,
for, as In the case of Jimmy Kemball,
tbe soil had been worked this year for
the lirst time, and wos very stony and
thirsty. Many of tlie flowers had
gone to seed, leaving the proof that
there had been lovely bloom before
the hot weather had begun.
Just a word to all the boys: You
have shown good courage tliis year;
stick to it. The harvest is past anil
tlie summer Is gone, but the summer
of 1916 ls before you. It may look to
you to be away In the distance but the
season's soon go by and after the
long winter's sleep tlie Voice of Spring
wlll be calling to you to commence
seeding again.

CRANBROOK   HKRAT*R-:fgmtnlng nrt of character blackening.

bad, or even worse, than Cranbrook.
Two blacks will never make a white.

Cranbrook, B. i\ September WUu 1915
In very appropriate sackcloth and
ashes ot an almoBt forgotten decency,
let us, for our souls' good, make open
confession that Cranbrook is morally
rotten. It would bo foolish to say
that  this   condition   applies  to  even
OTTAWA, SEPTEMBER 4—The return of Major General Sir Sam
Hughes is eagerly awaited at the capital. Now that Canada's War Lord
anything like the majority; but that I |1QB plucked the ultimate honor and
has become a Knight Commander of
the Bath, with a special eye. no doubt,
to the sanitation of the army, It Is
felt that he ought to get back to business unless he wants Acting Minister
of Militia Lougheed to supplant him
in the hearts of his countrymen.
Senator Lougheed has done very
well Indeed during his Incumbency of
the ollice. The machine gun move*
ment took shape under his guidance,
also lite disablement fund, and one
way aud another the locum tenens
from Calgary Ims displayed enough
originality aud Inspiration to cause
(Sis Sam to look to his laurels. That
Senator Lougheed has likewise displayed great moderation of statement
has also been a source of comparison,
but this is probably explained by the
fact that Senator Longhead is only an
Honorary Colonel whereas Sir Sam
is a Major General aud must consequently blow a louder hum.
The cable dispatches indicate that
Sir Sum was made a Knight as a
salve to bis wounds aud an answer lo
his critics, just as n Garter was hastily attached to Lord Kitchener to keep
his reputation from falling. Even
Lord Northcllffe's newspapers are
bound to keep their hands off a person's Garters. Similarly the Opposition press will respect Sir Sam's
knighthood—or if they don't they
ought to.
This Is a pretty theory but lt falls
to convince anybody who knows- what
in ingrained democrat Sir Sum Is. It
took at least two uverpowerlng reasons to change his mind. One probably was that everybody else was doing It—ln the last four years four
Canadian Cabinet Ministers liave offered themselves on the altar of
knighthood, not to mention the titles
thut have been passed around among
llieir friends. And the other probably
was the settled policy of the Borden
Government to have a first and second
line of cabinet defence consisting entirely of Knights. This lino which
wlll be gradually extended until It
takes In the Hon. Bob Rogers, just
naturally had to Include Major General Sam who Is the chief defender of
the realm in these parts. Everybody
knows he Is because he has said so
himself and besides we have Lord
Robert's word for it tliat be Is the
greatest Driving Force In history.
Such being the case Major General
Sam could hardly be left out of the
thin red line of knights whom Premier
Borden is more or less rapidly gather-
lug ubout him. And even ut that one
docs not suppose that Major General
Sam surrendered without a struggle.
Later reports will show that he was
lured to Buckingham Palace, and that
King George put it on him when he
wasn't looking. This often happens
where considerations of state are Involved. Some of tbe victims scream
more than others, but all are ultimately persuaded that It Is for tbe good
of the peoplu and end up by being
reconciled to thc burden. Sir Sam,
we have no doubt, looks at it In tbat
way, as a burden, a sort of war stamp
he Is obliged to carry in order to help
bis country.
In time he will get used to his title.
He will tlnd It specially serviceable
lu Ottawa where no five o'clock tea Is
complete without one. The Itldeau
Club will think all tlie more of him
for it It will do much to overawe
the armchair generals, smoking-room
admirals and high-ball colonels who
make thn capital their headquarters.
One way and another hc will And It
a handy thing to have In his clothes.
It may chafe him at first but the longer he uses It the better he'll like It
snd the odds are a hundred to one
against his ever mailing It back to
King George as a misfit. Fierce radicals wlll tell you that a knighthood
Is us disfiguring as a wart and as
pnlnful as a corn, but it Isn't. You
can take Sir Sam's word for it, that
after tlie first feeling of revulsion Is
over and your system bas got accustomed to It, the thing Is not unpleasant. It growB on you, so to speak,
like a cauliflower cur or the tobacco
habit. i
Sir  Max Altken's account of    the
an apparently growing minority or
our men, single and married, of our
women both married and single, of
our boys and girls und even of certain
of the children of school age, are a-
depte ln depravity aud social vice Is
true. We are tola that tho Kaiser's
war ls a punishment for God forgetting and the immoralities of a gross
materialism. The people of Germany
and of tho allied nations, so we are
told, ate, drank and made merry with
tach others wives and husbands, and
thereby they are drinking death ln
every form. Must It take a trampling
in blood and mud to make the offender against public decency and morality ln Cranbrook learn that there is a
Ood-ordalned law of Inevitable cause
and effect which works out, Inexorably
tn the awful word:: of the awful judgment: "Be nut deceived, God Is not
mocked. Kor what a man soweth
that shall he also heap."
What has the sowing beeu which
blossoms In ruined homes; in ruined
daughters; ln sons who havo taken
to the broad highway uf destruction;
ln mothers whose daughters are fash-
Ion plates of dress, frivolity and foolishness and even Immorality for the
professional sinners of Hill 60; In
mothers who only wait the door to
close on tho departure of their lawful
husbands to turn to the kiss of another husband whoso wife is no better; In husbands who count ns prizes
tho young girls they have led ai.tray?
What kind has been the sowing whicli
blossoms In a filthy tale but Into the
lips ot a mere child, to ruin a decent
man, and this backed by the oath of
the mother who so desperately
trafficked ln tho flesh and moral of
her offspring? What has the sowing
of parents been where girls of twelve
and thirteen have been dragged by
the police from shacks and hovelr to
aave them from a fate apparently of
their own seeking? Who are rer.pon-
elble? Of a certainty lt Is not the
ministers of the gospel. They do the
best they can, but the fault, beyond all
question or doubt, lies with tho home
life and for that the mothers are, before Ood and man, mainly responsible.
We bear a deal about the social evil.
It certainly ls a choice sample of the
Dead Sea fruit of the Devil's garden,
beloved of the pimp, the dope fiend,
the fellow who runs the booze Joint
end the poor lost sisters who have
taken to the "Gay Life," forgetting
that tho awful Judgment spoken of u
moment ago grinds their souls, hearts,
minds, bodies and bones, even to the
third and fourth generation. Preachers preach and rave and Invoke the
eld of tho police to drive those unfor-
tenetes out into the waste places, Into
tome worse and more fearful boll than
the one they suffer at present; to
drive them anywhere provided their
tinning be not seen of the people. We
do not want to minimize the curse;
hut we cannot help asking how much
worse Is It than social vice practised
broadcast by men and women, married
and single, who respecting no low of
Ood and guided by no principle of
decency or morality save than embodied In the eleventh commandment
"Don't get caught" make our city a
by-word? But Borne of them get
caught and then The Awful Law
works Itself out In wild revenge, red
mln and the breaking up of laws.
The wages of sin ts death."
It sets one thinking that It might be
Just as well If certain of our women
decided It might be as well to avoid
what may be called hyphenated-marriage. It would be ns well for decency

the wife of Mr. X alone and not, (according as opportunity offers the enn-

should fall bock on London as the
main theatre of action and the knighting of Sir Sam as an event of historical significance to be described with
great wealth of detail. All Canada
can say to Sir Max is to go It
This country cannot hear;. and In
fuct never has had a chance not to
hear, too much of Sam Hughes. If
others were silent Sam always spoke
up for himself, which waB ttya reasonable course, because who could know
the facts better. It Is only fair to
Sir Sam to say that he never under
stated the facts. He extenuated nothing that could glorify Sam Hughes
He made lt clear that be did not hate
himself and then left you to draw
your own conclusions. Outside of demonstrating that the other fellow was
a liar and a chicken thief Sam Instituted no Invidious comparisons.
He let tt go at that. A plain, unvarnished confession of real merit—that
was all he aimed at. Such was the
literary style, the grand manner,
simple but strong, of Sam Hughes,
journalist, statesman and soldier, a
manner that Sir Max Altken cannot do
better than copy tf he Is to slug Sir
Sam's praises lu sizable words. All
Canada asks of Sir Max Ib that he
sing It in prose. The poetry of the
event may sweep him oft his teet, as at
times poetry has swept Sir Sam off
his, but Sir Max would be well advised to stick to Mother Earth. He can
do that-by playing up the politics of
It. He will be a very poor eye witness Indeed If he falls to point out
that this knighthood ot   Sir Sam    Is

to all that has ever been Bald or
thought about sham shoes, foundered
horses, window glass binoculars and
other matters opened up by tbe public accounts committee. Incidentally
it Is tbe postscript to tbe Hutton correspondence—fifteen years late perhaps—but a satisfactory answer nevertheless. He laughs best who laughs

to give his old enemy the merry ha-ha
but our guess Ib tbat he Is too big-
hearted to do It.

At the regular meeting of the city
fathers Monday afternoon Aid. Campbell spoke volumes when he,referred
to the matter of the police commission
being elected by the city at Its regular annual election; A little
thought will convince the average
man that this Is only too true. Just
why a political party, whether It be
Conservative, Liberals or otherwise,
should place men In responsible positions without the consent ot the
'ratepayers, Is puzzling to Bay the
least. The property owners elect
their mayor and council and school
trustees. . Is tiiere any reason why
they should not elect their police and
license commission? The police commission is the most important public
body In Cranbrook—higher than the
city council—yet the citizens must sit
idly by and submit to the. wishes of
politicians. The law on this point
badly needs fixing. This Is no reflection ln any way on the present
members of the Cranbrook police
commission, but is, we believe, a
matter which should engage the aten-
tlon of every property owner In British Columbia.

Canada is rapidly becoming widely
known for the excellence of its automobile roads, and for the many places
of interest to the motor tourist. Despite tlie war tlie people north of the
international boundary line, from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, are making
gigantic efforts to construct us many
miles of first class highways this year
as possible. This has been their road
making policy for years. Therefore,
the road conditions of today make
Canada one of the most delightful
places on the continent for thc automobtllst.
Every province, municipality, city,
district and township Is uniting with
the federal government in urging the
construction of good roads and thereby luring with the most tempting of
inducements motor enthusiasts from
all ports of the world. It will no', be
many months before a motorist wlll
be able to start his journey by auto at
Miami, travel north through the United StateB to Montreal, and thence
westward to tho Pacific Coast, where
he will find the other international
highway frobi Vancouver to Mexico
City. The two international highways
and the Canadian Transcontinental
highway are being rushed to completion and will soon be linked up into a complete chain, forging together
the cities on both sides of the boundary line.
The section of the Eastern International highway, from Rouse's Point,
New York, to Montreal is now nearly
finished. This section, which is 41!
tntleB in length, wlll be named "King

King Edward VII. Thit; section of the

glittering glaciers, mirror-like lakes,
boisterous torrents and silver streams,
that country which is the Mecca of
the tourist aud the lover of solltiuh
Throughout the greater length the
road will follow the trans-mountain
lines of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
and eventually connect the tlve well-
known scenic points, Banff, Golden,'
Cranbrook, Maeleod and Calgary.
There are already some splendid
roads ln America but none of them
wlll compare with this broad path
through the fairyland of Canada.
Nearly five hundred miles of the
"Highway of the Great Divide" are
already completed and the remaining
distance is to he finished as rapidly as
possible, probably within the course
of the summer.
From Golden, ti. C„ the road Is
completed as far south as Cranbrook
[and an excellent communication is
! thereby established between the trans*
I mountain lines of the Canadian Pact-
lie. This road takes the tourist along
the Kootenay River and through the
Columbia Valley by way of Windermere and Fort Steele, the latter a
famous mining town during the "rush"
in the early nineties. This road Is
maintained by the Canadian Government and while some of the grades are
rather heavy, there are none of them
which cannot be negotiated with eaBe
by a Ford Car. At Fort Steele there
is an important branch road whicli
leads to the international boundary
wliere connection is made with the
roads of Canada. This makes it possible to drive a car from Spokane as
far north as Golden, B. C.
Of this run from Golden to Cranbrook, Mr. Wilbur Nesblt, author and
traveler has said, "In all the world
elsewhore there is no such journey possible as this which we have just completed by automobile up tlie valley of
the Columbia to Lake Windermere,
eighty miles of exciting racing among
the crags, over shoulders of mountains
dinging to hillsides, and whirling a-
cross valleys and along the table
lands; always and always with the
silent Rockies towering high on one
side and majestic Selkirks as sentinels
on the other, huge peaks capped with
eternal snow, great piles ot God's
masonry, one unceasing vista of mountains, of forest, of river, lake, gorge,
ridge, crest and peak. There are celebrated rides in England and Continental Europe, but here we have the
solemn beauty of the Grand Canyon.
the wild lovllness of the Yellowstone
and the Yosemlte, the stately grace of
the. Hudson, the terrific stillness of
the far north and the clinging scent
of the bowered southland."
From Cranbrook to Maeleod and
thence on to Calgary 108 miles away
the highway is fn excellent shape. The
autoB have been using the Calgary-
Banff section of the road during last
summer and those who have beeu over
it declare the highway to be splendid.
From Calgary to Banff Is about Ave
hours ride If no time is lost. With a
reasonoble margin for delays the trip
can be made in six hours.

I must thank you for the paragraph
relating to myself In your issue of
Aug. 5th and also for your kindness
in forwarding "The Herald" so regularly. It Is ulwuys interesting and
as often entertaining and amusing.
I um precluded from ulludtng to the
war except in general terms, but endorse a cutting from the "Wiltshire
Gazette" of Aug. 26.il, which speuks
for itself.
It cannot be out of place to say
that in the ranks here are several
Canadians from New Brunswick who
know Senator King.
Further, I may say that the ilrst
line of this battalion relieved the Canadians iu the trenches aud those of
the wounded who are resting here
speak most highly nf the good comradeship existing between the British
Irish and Oversells forces. All speak
highly of the bravery and endurance
of the Canadians.
One wounded man here was nursed
back to convalescence In No. 1 Canadian General Hospital and tells me
that all the arrangements were perfect.
1 have not been ahle to meet my
old colleague, S. L. Coop, and do not
know his exact address and it seems
we must communicate through the
columns of your paper. I met a
Lance-Corporal of Princess Patricias
a few days ago. He came from Edmonton and knew botli Mr. Pinkham
and Mr. H. W. Supple. He has been
recommended for a commission in
the 6th King's.
The "Hesperian" I came over In
also brought the ballot papers for the
Canadians ln the trenches. "Vare ts
dose babers now?"
All Cranbrook friends will, I feel
sure, accept this letter as an expression of my goodwill towards them and
perhaps I may "couple with the toast"
the names of Mr. N. A. Wallinger and
Mr. A. C. Harshaw and yourself as
three able representatives of my former hunting grounds.
Yours sincerely,
Edgar Salisbury.

—Although little is published concerning the air raids, letters from
people who have friends In the raided
areas contain a considerable amount
of information. A number of Devizes
residents have received such communications. In one case the wife of
an Army Service Corps man, who
came to Devizes while her husband
was here, had the experience of seeing the Zeppelin at its bomb-dropping
work as she was on her way from
London coastwards. The airship, she
says, pursued the train. The engine
driver put on tremendous speed, and
she thought the train would run off
the rails.

For nearly a year the Herald has
been earnestly striving to print something In its columns which would at
least please one subscriber. Reward has come from far-away bally
Kngland, and from no less a personage than Mr. Edgar Sainsbury, formerly a resident of Cranbrook. Running a paper In a small community Is
a thankless job. Some delinquent
subscriber Is always kicking over the
traces. When a meeting Is roported
and every effort Is used to do justice
to everyone concerned, the paper ls
accused of misrepresenting the facts,
and the four years ln arreas subscriber threatens to cancel his sub'
scrlptlon, and the editor Is praying to
goodness that he will. When some
fiend Is arrested for violation of all
rules of society or some one occupying a position of trust tramples the
law under his feet, the paper is supposed to "shut up" and mind Its own
business. * Last week we were told
to keep our nose to the grind stone
and digest everything a curtain element wished to thrust down our
throat. The man who tries this
game, so far sb the present editor of
the Herald Is concerned, Is Indeed
playing with flre. In less than two
months our lease wlll be up and un
til that time arrives no one will die

will not print That Is our business, Mr. Dictator, and we don't give

Somewhere in France,
August 22nd. 1915
We are present in tlie trenches and
as usual, lately, up to our necks In
mud, as yesterday It rained hard all
day and the trenches we are occupying at present time are pretty old.
There has been some severe lighting
in the past just around here, and the
trenches have beeu knocked down by
shells and rebuilt, consequently bodies that had been buried huve been
disturbed, and the dug-outs are not
very sweet in places, also InfeBted
with rats, which, however, give us
some amusement killing them. Flics
und wasps are pretty bad also.
However, shall be going Into billets
again tomorow for a few days rest.
Wish as all of us do, that they
would let the first contingent home
now, and the Snd take our place. We
have done 12 mouths it ml put in a
hard winter campaign. If the 2nd
could take our place and give ns a
few montlis' rest. Then, If necessary,
wu could come over In the rprlug.
Here we have been for months sleeping out and hardly ever have our
hoots off. We nil hate tlie thoughts or
another winter aud hope they will
put thc few of the 1st thut Is left ou
garrison duty for a while.
Write to me often and lot mo know
if my letters are reaching you. Mosl
of the fellows get their mail O. K. In
two weeks.
Another fellow and I volunteered
aud went out last night and cut barbed wire in front of the Gorman
trenches, We stuck up a notice and
asked them over to see us If they felt
like it. They are, by now, just as
scared of the Canadians as the In
lii.uis, as we do all sorts of tricks on
on them this way. And they generally seem to know when the Canadians are In the front of them. We
practically feel sure that they will
never make an attack while we are
iu the front Hue. It has always happened this way since we handled them
on April 22nd, when they broke thro'
1 the French lines.
The lines we hold now have been
lost by the French, twice retaken by
the English and lost again by the
English and again retaken, so you see
some hard fighting has been done
here. We are hoping the Germans j
may try It while we are here, but;
doubt It. We expect to remain In
these purts for come time to come,
but have a lot of marching to do
every four or live days.
We go to billets tomorrow and
march out five miles. We have not
had our hoots off for five days and
nights. This makes it pretty hard
with equipment, etc., on thc back
(r!fle ammunition) and very little
slepp while In the trenches.
As I am going on guard I will close
and get this off tonight. The mall Is
taken out tonight. Is every night,
which is some consolation, so write
me often.
