most generally accepted view, and the j
weight of evidence seems to prove that
It was produced In the county of Cornwall and early in the last century.
As evidence, Mr. C. F. Montresoi
stated in Poultry, 1895, that he had
been personally informed by Sir Walter Gilbert In 1846 that he had crossed
Hed Aseels, an Indian fighting breed,
with Derby Black-reds, thus producing thu Indian Came. This .seems to
have been the beginning but It Is supposed thut later Black red Malay

now so characteristic of the bread, j
Lewis Wtlght says that up to the

the breed did not possess these char- j

In 188-3 The ludlan Game Club was
organized at Plymouth, England, and
the name Cornish Indian Game adopted tor the breed as at that time any

also called Indian Game, and a definite type was laid down for the guidance of breeders und judges. Up to
that time any cross of Malay and Old

In 1887 the first article on the breed
was published in America, and later
the same year Dr, H. P. Clarke of
Indianapolis Imported the first specimens tn America. The same year an
Illustration ot the breed was published
in Game Fowl Monthly, which was the
first picture of the breed published in
the world.
In 1893 they were admitted to the
American Standard, and it was ln
this year that I purchased my first

A gloom wus cast over the city when

Tomorrow we commemorate the

Counter-attacking against a strong
determination to advance might have I
temporarily checked the loss of ter-l
rain, but it Ih not the British Com-j
munder's purpose to needlessly sacrifice Ms men. The Germans have
frequently demonstrated they have no
regard for the lives of their soldiers
when an important objective is to be
gained, their futile attack on Verdun
is a case In point; this venture cost
ihem half a million men and the attempt was abortive; their present object is apparently to split thc British
und French forces, to reach Paris and
gain the Channel ports and they are
evidently prepared for on even greater sacrifice which we believe will
prove equally abortive by reason of
the better preparedness of the opposing armies.
The present situation may at first
glance seem critical but we have supreme confidence time will sltow that

Front "A Student In Arms," By the
l.ate Meat. Donald Hanke), Who
wns Killed In Action on the
Western Front on October
im, 191U.
There has been a great deal of talk
since the war began ot "the Church's
opportunity." It Is one of those vague
phrases which nre the delight of the
man who has no responsibility In the
mutter and the despair of those who
have. It suggests that "soniebody
ought to do something," and In the
case tlie "somebody" darkly hinted at
fs obviously the unfortunate chaplain.
1 havo seen letters from chaplains
complaining bitterly of the phrase.
What did !t mean'.' Did it mean that
I here was un opportunity nf providing
soldiers with free note paper and
cheap suppers? If so, they agreed.
There was un opportunity, and
the Church had risen to the occasion. But If tt meant that there
was un opportunity of bringing
the erring buck to the fold, they
wished someone would come und
show them how it ought to he done.
They had tried their hardest, and It
seemed to them thut men were as in-
accessuble as ever. They udmitted
that they had hoped that the war
would make men more serious, and
that when confronted daily by tlie
mystb.-ds of death and pain they
would naturally turn to the Church
of their baptism for comfort and
ghostly strength. But this hnd not
happened to any marked extent. The
men still appeared to be the same
cureless, indifferent heathen thut they
had always been.
To sit at a typewriter and tell a
man how to do his job is a despicable
proceeding,  and  yet   I  suppose  that
drink, and sleep with him. And the
war gave ns a unique opportunity of
doing this. We knew that we could
never become worklngmen; but no
power on earth could prevent us from
enlisting if we were sound of wind and
limb. And enlisting meant living on*
terms of absolute equality with the
very men whom we wanted to understand. Filled anew with the glamour
of our queBt, we sought the nearest
recruiting office.
In the barrack-room we certainly
achieved Intimacy; but the elemental
realities were distinctly disappointing.
We were disappointed to find that being cold nnd rather hungry did not induce us to sound philosophizing. It
was merely uncomfortable. Cleaning
greasy cooking-pots, scrubbing dirty
floors, nnd drilling produced no thrills.
They simply bored us. Lite was dull
and prosaic, and, ns we linve said,
uncomfortable, No one ever said
anything interesting. We never got a
chance to sit down nnd think things
out. Praying wus almost an Impossibility. It in extraordinarily hard to
pray in u crowd, especially when you
are tired out at night, nnd have to bo
uii and dressed In the morning before
you are properly awake,
These were first impressions; but
as time went on, and life became easier through habit, we were nblo to
lealize that we had actually been experiencing the very conditions which
prevent the worklngmnn from being a
philosopher. We grasped the fundamental fact that he is Inarticulate,
and that he has no real chance of being anything else. We perceived that
If you wanted to find out what he
believed in you must not look to his
words, hut to his actions and the objects of his admiration. And after
all, it did not necessarily follow that
because a man wns inarticulate he
therefore had no religion. St. James
compares those who state their
faith apart from tlieir works with
those who declare it by their
works and his comparison Is by no
means favourable to the former. Actions nnd objects of admiration, these
were tlie things that we must watch
If we would discover the true religion
of the inarticulate.
I have said that the life of the
barraek-rooni is dull and rather petty.
In point of fact, it bears somewhat the

class  life as salt-water baths do to

it ull began with a Quest. It Is
quite legitimate to call It a quest.
It was thc Romance of the Unknown
that enticed us, just as it enticed necromancers and alchemists and explorers in former days. Only fiur Unknown was quite .ilosc to our hand.
It. looked up at us fnm the faces that
ve pussed in the street. As we stood
nn the Embankment it frowned at us

mass of factories and tenements and

we were not going to turn religious
at the last minute because we were
afraid. Some man began to scoff ut
the Old Testament, David aud Bath*
sheba, Jonah and the whale, aud so
forth. Another capped him by laughing at the feeding of thc five thousand.
A third said that In his opinion anyone who pretended to be a Christian in
the army would be a humbug. The
sergeant-major was fatuously apologetic and shocked, and applied tin-
closure by putting out the light and
ordering silence.
It was not much, but enough to
convince me that the soldier, and In
this case the soldier means the working man, does not in the least connect the things thnt lie really believes
ln with Christianity. He thinks thai
Christianity consists in believing u.
the Bible nnd settling up to be better
than your neighbors. By believing the
Bible he means believing thnt Jonah
wns swallowed by the whale, By
setting up to be belter than your
neighbors he means not drinking, not
swearing aud preferably not smoking,
being close-fisted with your money,
nvniding the companionship ot doubtful diameters and refusing to acknowledge that such have any claim upon
This is surely nothing short of tragedy. Here were men who believed
absolutely in the Christian virtues of
unselfishness, generosity, charity, ami
humility, without evpr connecting
them in their minds with Christ; ami
nt the same time what tiny did associate with Christ hunt/ was just on a
par with the formalism and smug selt-
rlghteousness which Christ spent his
whole life In trying to destroy.
Tlie chaplains as n rule failed e>
realize this. They saw tlie inarticulateness, nnd assumed u lack of any
religion. They remonstrated with
their tiearers for not saying their
prayers, and not coming to Communion, and not being afraid to die without making peace with God. Thoy did
not grasp that the men really had
deep-seated beliefs in goodness, mul
thnt the only reason why they did
not pray nnd go to Communion was
that they never connected the goodness in which they believed with the
God In Whom the chaplains said they
ought to believe. If they hud connect
id Christianity with unselfishness and
the rest, they would have heen prepared to look at Christ as their Mas-

am certain that if the chaplain wants
to he understood and to win their sympathy he must begin by showing them
that Christianity Is tlie explanation
nnd the justification and the triumph
of all that they do now really believe
in. He must start by nicking their

will recognize. He must make them

The Archbishop of Canterbury and

The wonderful heroism of our men
who are locked In a deadly grip with
a relentless foe, offering their bodies
as a barrier to further progress must
foster a deep sense ot gratitude in
our hearts, which time will never efface; the crushing anxiety of the
families who are dally awaiting news
of their dear ones must excite our
deepest sympathy.
Our thoughts these days are constantly In France and as we think
shall we not offer a prayer to Cod that
the Christian principles of freedom
and humanity for which we are fighting may be perpetuated on Earth? A
prayer for those who are passing thru
the valley of tbe shadow of death; a
prayer for the wounded, the doctors,

argument "about It and about",
thought that we might gain a truer
perspective by mingling with men
whose minds hod not been confused
by artificial complications, and whose
philosophy must have grown naturally
from their naked struggle with the
:lemental realities. We thought that
we could leam from them what were
'lie truths'which really mattered, what
really wus the relative value of the
material, the mental, and the spiritual.

quality, too, that they admired In
other people. They liked an officer
who was free with his money, took
trouble to understand them If they
were in difficulties, and considered
their welfare. They were extremely
quick to see through anyone who pretended to be better than he was. This
they disliked more than anything else.
The man they admired was the man,
who, though obviously a gentleman,
did not trade on It. That surely, is
the trait which In the gospel, Is called
humility. They certainly did not believe fn unselfishness, generosity,
charity, and humility. But It was
doubtful whether they ever connected
these qualities with the profession and
practice of Christianity,

want to point out why it is such a
real ground for thanks giving and
rejoicing that ihe flag of England
waves over the Holy City to-day.
It is not because of Its size, for
j Jerusalrni is quite » small city of
only  110,000   people.
Nor is ii because of its stragetic
possibilities; nor because of the political importance of its occupation,
great as that undoubtedly It. News

i news of tlie capture of Jerusalem was
: in a few days, the talk of every bazaar
in India and the East where it has
done much to strengthen our prestige. It will be felt deeply throughout Russia, where there Is a very
large Jewish population, and where
devout pilgrims of the Christian peas-.
an try have come in thousands for
centuries to tlie Holy Places,
But the political consequences,
great its they are, do not exhaust the
significance of that historic event of
last December, when General Allenby,
accompanied hy representatives of the
democracies of the world, stood within
the Gates of Jerusalem,
In the days of the First Crusade,
, Godfrey de Bouillon entered Jerusa-

: as king there, saying: "I will not wear

wore a crown of thorns."
The British General also entered
the city on foot, not as a triumphant
conqueror, but as the f|feud of the

Numerous functions have held the
attention of the social circle in the
Old Historic Burg and the Roosviiie
Valley during the past week, several
of them having been targe affairs, and
everyone contributing to make the
week a bright and busy one.
The St. Patrick's Dance held at tnt
Roosviiie School House on March 16th
brought out every Irishman in the
Valley. The Local String Band supplied the music assisted by Mr. George
DlttgBdale. Banjo and Concertina soloist, for several years with the Moore
and Burgess .Minstrels, London, Eng-
land. Dick A. Roo, the well known
broncho twister, acted as floor man
ager, and kept tin- dance in full swing
and made it as pleasant as marrying
a poor girl for love only and before
the honeymoon is over her uncle dies
and leaves her two million dollars.
Miss Jennie Nichols of Creston took
first prize for waltzing. The free
supper provided by the ladies of the
Valley, would discount your grandmother's thanksgiving dinner, and was
a marvel of the confectioners art,
cakes that would really taste good to
an angel, the lemon meringues would
melt in your mouth, coffee like a
dream of joy with real cream. It
was a brilliant success and everybody
had a good time, and promised to come
again. The receipts of I lie dance,
after expenses are paid, will go to
the Patriotic Fund.

It is however In economic qualities'
that the Importance of the Cornish
is most evidenced. On the table the
carcase presents a most satisfying appearance and cuts to the greatest advantage, the number of slices possible
off the keel being greater, in proportion to weight, than any other English
or American pure breed we believe;
and most certainly no oilier breed can
compare with cut of meat on the back
most breeds being absolutely void of
any but an oily layer under the skin

The meat is very fine and short-:
grained and very firm but not so hard
as The Game or Malay, and in old i
birds it does not assume the red tint !
after cooking so often shown by old
birds of the dual purpose breeds.
As pure breeds the Cornish are not
fast maturing, but as crosses they will
outstrip almost any pure-bred or cross
in dressed weight when food consumed
is taken Into account.
As layers, the Cornish Is not a re- [
'■(ird maker although the longer tailed
higher legged type of a few years
back was a pretty fair layer, but the
very blocky modern henvy weight j
Cornish hen is rather low down in the
BCale of egg production.

produces a far larger fowl that Is

One has only to look over the

Military Service Act
Important Announcement to All
nnd to the Public Generally
IN dealing with the very large number of claims for exemption
brought forward for consideration in connection with Clan 1
under the Military Service Act, it has occurred, as was inevitable, that as a result of false statements and difficulties put in the
way of investigation, some individuals have secured exemption
whose proper place is in the Army.
It it not the intention of the Government to allow these men to evsde permanently their obligation to bear their part In the military defence of the
Country and of the ideals for which we are fighting. To do so would defeat
the purpose of the Act, and cause grave injustice to men in the oecond dan
necessarily called out to All their places.
Exemptions Granted on Falsa Grounds
It ii, therefore, proposed to scrutinise carefully all exemptions granted to datt
In order to teparate thow which have been granted on false or insufficient
ground! from those that are well founded.
With thii object in view the various Registrars under the Military Service
Act have been Instructed to issue a series of questionnaire! to exempted men.
These questionnaires must be filled up correctly and returned promptly under
penalty of forfeiture of exemption for failure to do so.
Exempted Man Who Hava Changed Address
It is therefore important In their own interest that all exempted men who
have changed their address lince their exemption was (ranted and who have
not already notified the Registrar of luch change should notify him at once.
Under the Regulation! it li the duty of exempted men to keep the Regiitrar
advised of any change of address, and failure to receive the questionnaire
by reason of neglect of this duty must be treated as equivalent to failure to
return the questionnaire after receipt
Citizens Urgtd to Assist
In many Instances information has been furnished by members of the public
whloh has led to the cancellation of exemption! obtained by falie or misleading statements. Further co-operation of this character It invited. The
Government regard it ai the Duty of all loyal citizens, not only to the Country,
but to the men at the front, to assist in thii way iri securing reinforcements
on a Juit and legal basis. Correspondence of thii character will be treated
as strictly confidential and will receive the fullest investigation.
Minister tf Juitict.
Correspondence should be directed to Robt. 8. Lennie, K.C., Regiitrar under
the Military Bervice Act, Vancouver, B.C.
