of the children was remarkable and
the rupidlty with which the school was

to tbe severnl visitors present.
Tbe Cranbrook Central School is a
modern school building In every particular, with particularly fine wide
hallways, built of red brick, and bas
a fine exterior appearance ns well.
There are ten school rooms, one ot
which is now used for high school
purposes, and the average attendance
is about four hundred pupils. In connection there Is a separate mnnnnl
training building, well equipped with
tools and supplies.
The visitors on Tuesday, who included Mr. II. M. Cowan, Secretary of
tbe Ry. Y. M. C, A.. Uev. W. K. Thompson of Knox Church, and Mr. T. H.
Kay. editor of Tlie Herald, were much
impressed with tbe improvements In

his class take up a lesson In Canadian
history for the benefit of the visitors,
and the class also demonstrated some
: really astonishing mental arithmetic,
which to tell tbe truth would have perplexed any one of the visiting gcntlc-
j men hud -they been asked for a prompt
answer, but tbe pupils seemed ready j
as soon as the lust word was out of
Mr. Shield's mouth. Mr. Shields Is
right at home in his chosen avocation,
'and his enthusiasm and energy is hav-
; Ing u favorable effect on the pupils.

nelter-Bkelter, any old way, the pupils
'. are now all assembled outside and nt
j a given signal march in to the music
i of the piano und drum, the girls
through the side door, tbe boys
through the rear door. Each room
has Its captains, and as the lines
reach the class doors the captain falls
nut and gives the word "single file"
and the pupils mnrch Into the room
and to their seals in perfeet order. A
visit to tlie school is full of interest,
nnd many parents who know nothing
of tbe present-day school methods
would be well repaid for a visit to the
loonl school. .

Lieut. A. J. Braltbwaite, was in the
city this week on the wny to visit his
brother, J. E. Braithwalte of Wycliffe.
Lieut. Braithwalte Is a returned veteran. He left Vancouver on the 22nd
of August, 1914, with the Tth Buttullon
and was In tiie battles of Ypres, Neuve
Chappelle, and Orchard Ridge at Fes-
tubert. He was gassed ut Ypres but
stuck to his post through tlie other
actions until ids lungs became badly
affected as a result of tlie gassing. He
was sent home aud as soon as he had
recovered sufficiently volunteered u-
galn for Borvioe, and was given a lieutenant's commission in the 281st Battalion, thu new Kiltie Regiment now
being formed at Vancouver.
"Florodora" was presented by F.
Stuart Whyte's company at the Auditorium Tuesduy night to a crowded
house. The play was somewhat abbreviated but the catchy choruses
were all there and were well rendered
by the t'ompany. The costumes were
vory pretty and the voices good, but
there is a little too much sameness to
the comedian's style. Miss Ethel
Hendron rendered a couple of very
pleasing violin selections.

cross over at night, seize the principal

What Is the best protection Canada

(Victoria Colonist)
Every now and then something appears in the papers concerning the
luck of cheering when soldiers go
away or return from tbe front. Does
is ever occur to some of those who
complain that this lack may in very
great part be attributed to the depth
of feeling on the part of the public?
"Mow can I cheert" said one person.
"My heart Is too near my throat. If
I grasp the hand of some gallant fellow, it is all I can manage to do without breaking down."

If wc arc to break off relations with
Germany let ns nt least break them off

In the record, on which our shame has

To quarrel over the Sussex or some
similar case while still condoning the

Doubtless It well be of Interest to
the general public and to those persons wbo bave so generously donated
to the Windermere District Branch of
the Canadian Patriotic Aid Fund to
know that up to the end of March last
the sum of $1,708.35 has been promised
over the present year, $060.85 having
already been paid to dale out of which
amount $450.00 has boon remitted to
the Provincial Branch at Victoria.
In December last when the branch
wus formed, It was thought that the
sum of $2,000 could, and should, be
raised during the coming year
throughout the district extending from
south of Briseo to Canal Plats. This
figure has not yet been reached and
while the Executive and Collecting
Committees greatly appreciate the
generous response that has met their
appeals for contributions, tbey feel
that there are still a few persons who
might wish to donate to this deserving
Fund and therefore wish to make it
plain tliat even the smallest amounts
wlll be glady received and duly acknowledged by any of the local committeemen or by the Secretary-Treasurer, J. B. Cornwall of Athalmer.
Also It may be of Interest to know
that at the present time six local families comprising 2t\ persons arc receiving dependents allowance amounting to $175.35 per month.
All those who have not yet donated
are asked to come forward with their
"mite" and help where help Is needed.

for leadership and for keeping his

and bis opinion on legal matters lias
of necessity something of the dogmatic
about It. Assuredness is necessary in
an attorney-general. It ls up to blm
not only to read the law correctly,
but to be sure that he Is right. He
does not have to consider tbe opinion
of the members of his party, the great
majority of whom are laymen upon
questions of law. This attitude of
mind in an attorney-general naturally
extends to a certain extent to otlier
mutters he has to deal wtth. But a
premier Is a loader of the majority.
He has to lead. He cannot drag his
followers. Bowser as premier does
not try to do so. He places his policies before tbem, but he is open to
accept suggestions, he Is open to accept new policies from them. His
business Is to make effective the wlll
of tbe majority of the members, who
represent the majority of the ridings.
Liked as  Well as  Admired.
Today Hon. W. J. Bowser Is not
merely admired. Hc is liked. He has
thc good wlll of tho members and of
others witb whom he has to deal,
The developments whioh have
brought the members of the legislature solidly behind him as premier
arc marked by two outstanding occasions. The first was on the night
of March 14 when the opposition attempted to force the dissolution of the
legislature. Earlier ln the day Bowser had gone farther than he need lu
our forefathers founded on the Christian Faith. You enter Into a greut Inheritance as a citizen of the world's
greatest empire, un empire handed
down to you, purified through the
suffering of tens of thousands of nobis
fathers and mothers, elder brother j

Friend, as the privilege and glory
of your inheritance Is great, so must
your life be grent to meet It. Youi
great citizenship calls you to live,
not a self-pleasing, luxurious, God-
careless life, but a life of service to
God and man. The empire Is and must
be a Christian empire—founded upon
and maintained by tne Law of Christ.
Are you doing anything to make yourself a well-informed loyal Christian
citizen? You owe It to your God, your
Empire and yourself to be a regular
and devout worshipper In the Church
of Christ and a worker In tlie service
of your empire.
You owe It to your fellow Christians
to keep the Sabbath as God's Day:
to refrain from Sunday sports, and

Followers Solid Behind Hlm.
When the house met the premier;
nrose In his seat. He exposed the;
Liberal proposals and in ringing but
deliberate terms told the house and
tho country that the government
would carry out Its pledges.- At thnt
moment and since the premier has
dominated the legislature; tho opposition seemed like pigmies agulnst the
strength of his personality and the
justice of Ills ease. Ills followers became solidly, wholeheartedly, behind
him. It marked the psychological
turn of the tide towartl victory. It
placed Bowser fairly and squurely at
the head of a phalanx of honestly
confident supporters, supporters confident of the government's strength,
confident of Its ability to retain public
confidence, confident above all things
tn their leader.
Ills Altitude Toward Charges.
Tlie second occasion was Bowser's
speech on tlie address. The Liberals
had been charging that the government was the "most corrupt In Canada." The premier took up the challenge. The door to inquiry was wide
open, lie told the house. It was up
to the Liberals to prove tlieir allegations or shut up. A day or two later
he said that If necessary the house
would sit until June 1 so that the
Liberals might have all the time
they required fur investigations. With
his largo majority in the house he
could have followed the precedent of
the Laurier "dark lantern brigade'
in the Dominion, of Sifton in Alberta
and ■ blocked investigation. But the
charges of corruption wero untrue.
Bowser had nothing'to fear. Tlie Liberals by weeks of fruitless Investigations and utter failure to make good
their charges of corruption against
the government have proved that.
These were the turning points In
the political situation. But tliat is
not all.
Always Open  to Conviction.
Cordiality, frankness, a ready courtesy and regard for the sentiments and
feelings, tlie foibles nnd peculiarities
even, of those with whom he has to
deal are material factors In the phases
of Bowser's character which have enabled hlm to rise to thc occasion us
premier. He cun submit with good
grace, but without sacrifice of principle, to the desiren cf his colleagues
and supporters. He is always open
to conviction. The underlying principles that govern his policy are
essentially democratic. No man in
Canada is more anxious to ascertain
the will of the peopl*-. or more willing
to carry it out. No man In Canada
Is more anxious to serve them to their
best advnntngc.
Those are not now qualities In W.
J. Bowser. He never descends to
posing, to wear a cloak which does
not belong to him, Tho qualities
whicli ho Is displaying as premier,
the qualities which are gaining hlm
tbe ungrudging goodwill of his supporters, are qualities which arc as
much a part of tlie real Bowser as
ar» the forcefulnoss and strength of
will for which he was admired as attorney-general.
Bowser the premier Is making good.
He ts steadily gaining a stronger hold
ou the good will of thc people. The
more they come Into contact with him
the better they know Bowser the real
man, the stronger and more enduring
wlll become the public support of a
man whose friend:: know that he is
worthy of It.
Those who know Bowser best admire him most; those who know him
best like him best. No man could
earn n truer complin ent.

Produce More and Save More
The Empire needs food. If you are not in the fighting line you may be in the producing line. Labour
is limited—all the more reason to do more than ever
before. Grow food for the men who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that
you can produce. Every little helps. You are responsible for your own work. If you
cannot produce as much as you would like, produce all you can. Work with the right
spirit. Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more
you produce the more you can save.   Producing and saving are war-service.
Make Your Labour Efficient
In war-time do not waste time and energy on unimportant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.
Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if
possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada
needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden.
Cultivate it with a will.   Make your labour count for as much as possible.
Do Not Waste Materials
There should be no waste in war-time.   Canada could
pay the annual interest on her war expenditure out
of what we waste on our farms, in our factories, in
