New   Year's   Horning— Three
Days Rest for the Dancers
The patrons of the first annual ball
of thc Volunteer Club will hi* assured
a pood time. Just think, you can
dance away until (I a.m. New Year's
morning and then, after your strenuous night of enjoyment, have three
full days to recuperate before the
daily grind again sets in, as Friday and
Saturday have been proclaimed legal
holidays. The soldier boys have planned things well.
At a meeting held by the Volunteer
nub. on December 7th, it was decided
thut the tickets for the Regimental
Ball to he given in the Auditorium
December 31st are to be $1.50 per
couple, extra lady, 75c which does not
include supper.
It has been the usual custom for the
ladies to prepare and serve the New-
Year's supper, but In view of tho fact
that this .arrangement caused a groat
deal of work, and that as a result
many of the ladles were unable to eu-
ioy their holidays, another plan has
been adopted.
A supi>i.or lunch, as one may wish,
will be served by the Little Davenport
management in the recently vacated
"Palm," adjoining the Auditorium, the
regiment being indebted to Mr. Jos
lackson for thc use of the building.
Tables will be set to accommodate
70 or 80, and the room will be made attractive for this occasion, thc prices
decided on by Mr. Herron will be the
snme as usual at the "L. D."
Previously the ladles of the St
John's Ambulance Corps, have received the proceeds from the supper
they served, but as a compensating
feature on this occasion, a percentage
nf the net \rnceeds from the bull will
be divided between the St. John's Ambulance Corps and the Sunshine
Society.
Captain Davies will have charge of
the decorations, and has planned to
have the affair take on all thc appearance possible military, and no doubt
his previous army experience will enable him to accomplish a great deal.

Orderlies are the best bowel remedy

Sootldng and easy In action, they
cleanse thc bowels, thoroughly toning
and strengthening them, and make
you feel great. They promote easy
and regular bowel action, help to
promptly relieve constipation and
overcome Its cause. In tbeso things
they differ trom old-fashioned, harsh,
disagreeable salts and otlier physics
which usually give only temporary
relief and often leave the bowels In
worse condition than ever. Tliey

Tlie following Is taken from the
Newport Mercury, of Rhode Island,
under date of November 7th. The item
Is of interest to tlie many friends of
Judge Peekhum, who lias land holdings near Fort Steele and has been
a frequent visitor to the district. The
judge is well and favorably known to
many Cranbrookitcs, who will hoar of
his marriage with interest:
Friends of W. G. Peckham whose
engagement to Miss Marlon V.'heelock
was announced some months ago have
received a letter from Venice saying
that the marriage had taken place
very quietly on account of the war.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. Dr. David Brown, of thc ProteBt-
ant church. Miss K. P. Wheclock wa?
with her sister: otherwise only Mrs
Young and a few friends were present. The bride has made severa'
trips abroad and has studied music

in Italy but are expected home about
November Bth. Mr. Peckham has
spent the summer writing up European Art,Exposition for "The studio"
and also observing the war in France.
He Is expected to tell his experience
to the newspapers on his return.
The ladles of Channlug Church

delegate to Unitarian conventions
from her state. Harvard men know
Francis H. Wheeloek. her father as
the landlord of Wheclock Dormitory
at Harvard whicli belonged to his family. An ancestor, Eleazer Wheeloek,
was thc founder of Dartmouth College.
KAISER BILL
I often think of other days,
And funny men with funny ways,
But Just to show there's no Ill-will
I'll tuke a round with Kaiser Bill.
He climbed ambition's pole, but then
It's been the shame with other men
Who stood upon that dizzy crown,
The further up the further down.
Vet Bill, he thought, when on the top,
That lie could wallop all the lot,
From anywhere to Gay Paree,
That's what he thought of you and mo
But In the wrangle, we are told,
He cast aside the days of old,
When England was in honor bound,
The treaty signed, to stand her ground
And, In support of Belgium's right,
Until tho end with Britain's .light,
And mill Die tyrant to the wall,
Ambition's pole wlll surety fall.
John Bull, he said "Now Billy, dear,
Yuu must remember It Is here—
Along this rond you cannot pass.
Now be a man and not an ass."
Put Bill, Im said, "I know thu game,
I'll force a passage all the sume;
You stand aside, I'll make him dance,
A second threshing give to France."
Then off Ile wont to give him more,
But little Belgium was In store,
And bravely met tho German hound
That trespassed on forbidden ground.
1%'   -'I rV' " -1
And give him beans In stylo galore,
Until his German heart was sore;
Though not disgraced they live to tell
Each soldier did his duty well.
The violator of this rule
Thc world proclaims a laughing fool;
The Allied troops wlll clear the way-*
The treaties signed they must obey.
The day Is fast approaching when
Tlie German Empire and Its men
Will   learn   to   write   with   honored
quill,
His abdication, Kaiser Bill.

MARRIAGE OP
WM. G. PECKHAM
The following Is taken irom thn
Newport Mercury, of Rhode Island,
under date of November 7th, The item
is of interest to the many friends of
Judge Peckham, who has land holdings near Fort Steele nnd has been
a frequent visitor to tlie district. The
judge Is well and favorably known to
many Cranbrookites, who will hear of
his marriage with interest:
Friends of W. G. Peckham whose
engagement to Miss Marion Wheeloek
was announced some months ago have
received a letter from Venice saying
that the marriage had taken place
very quietly on account of the war.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. Dr. David Brown, of tlie Protestant church. Miss K. P. Wheclock wa*?
with her sister: otherwise only Mrs
Young and a few friends were present. The bride bas made severe'
trips abroad nnd has studied music
there to some extent and nlso with
Arthur Foote. the Harvard composer
Mr. and Mrs. Peckham urc at present
In Italy but are expected home about
November 6th. Mr. Peckham has
spent the summer writing up European Art, Exposition for "The Studio"
and also observing tbe war in France.
He Is expected to tell his experience
to the newspapers on his return.
The ladies of Channing Church
know Mrs. Peckhom's mother as a
delegate to Unitarian conventions
from her state. Harvard men know
Francis H. Wheclock. her father as
the landlord of Wheeloek Dormitory
at Harvard whicli belonged to his family. An ancestor, Elcazer Wheeloek,
was the founder of Dartmouth College.

WRITES CRANBROOK MAN
W. II. Wilson Receives Letter From
Former ('ranbrook .Man  With
first  Contingent
A letter from S. L. Williams, formerly ln the employ of the Cranbrook
Sash and Door Company, to Mr. W. H.
Wilson, tbe jeweler, Is published below. The Herald has been complimented by several renders In publishing the letters from the front. Many
of the local militiamen are deeply interested In the movements of the boys
in camp at Salisbury Plain and each
week are eagerly awaiting the ap-
penranee of the Cranbrook Herald.
Mr. Williams' letter follows:
Dear Henry":
Just a line to let you know I arrived O.K., and am attached to the
Canadian Contingent. I hnve not had
n chance to see any of the boys yet.
as I have been very busy since I
joined. Wc are under canvas and It
Is ruining, und such mud. We are attached to a cavalry squadron and tlu*
horses turn everything into it muskeg.
I am writing this on my knees, so
please excuse the scrawl. With us, as
with all the otlier troops Is drill, from
morning tilt night we ure at it. However, we ure hoping to be moved into
barracks soon, which will bo better.
I went to n(* my uncle when I woh
In London. He was very much surprised to see me, and the following
day I went to see my aunt. Two of
my cousins ure ut the front and one Is
iu France, who was wounded in the
early part of the war. He was In tlm
i'llli Lancers nnd hud his arm shattered.
My aunt aud uncle were very pleased lo think i hud paid my own expenses from ll. 0. and he gnvo me a
present of $2uo nnd told tlio If 1 got
wounded or sick I wns to let him
know and they would look after me.
I am very sorry I have to toll you
1 did not see Mr. McCownti ai. Winnipeg. I will try and see ClmrllO McCowan tomorrow, We nil I ope to be
in France before long, but there Is
no telling when. I um falling Into the
d.lll tlrst rate. Huve just come olT
my first gunrd of 24 hours. It consists of 2 hours on ond 4 hours off.
The food ls fair nnd lots uf It.
London Is swarming with soldiers,
and at night the street lights are om.
It seemed rather odd tho lirst night I
wns In London. I met n fellow who
knew me in Cranbrook. A Mr. W.
Longto. He says he knoWB you very
well.
I must close now as "cook house"
ts about to sound and I am hungry.
1 hope you can send me a local paper,,
please, as 1 will always think well of
Cranbrook.
My Canadian expressions amused
my people very much. Well, good-bye.
Remember me to Mrs. Wilson, Dave,
and all tbe rest of the boys. I will
write again shortly.
Yours truly,
S. L. Williams.
