uml solemn meditation in memory of
the brave heroes who bad fallen fighting to preserve the liberties of mankind, he then called upon tlie audience
to sing "Nearer My Ood To Thee"
which was accompanied by Mrs. Wallinger's orchestra.
The chairman stated that 50 invitations had been sent to the leading
citizens Including lady speakers, irrespective of political leanings, the
meeting was strictly non-poHtlcal, and
was called for the purpose of ascertaining the feelings of all classes with
regard to the burning question of conscription, any person wishing to speak
for or against would be welcomed on

He was very proud of having tbo
honor of presiding at such a meeting
and was glad to see such a large

Mrs, Leslie, Regent of the I. 0. I). 10.,
deeply regretted she could not be
present to express her views owing to
severe illness.
Lieut. W. S. Samo. the first spenkor.
said: "As a loyal citizen of Canada
I am pleased to have the opportunity
of expressing my views on the greatest
question before the people of Canada
today-Conscription. Throughout the
Press discussions upon the subject, I
have failed to see one good reason or
excuse set forth why conscription
Hhould not be enforced at this critical
period. Why do tho people of onr
iclorious Dominion wait until it is inn
late or be forced to render their services in defence nf onr country and
Empire? While Canada and her loyal
citizens have done a great deal she
has not yet completed ber task nr done

Mr N. A. Walllngor then addressed
the meeting stating Thai in the
event of no assistance being forwnrded
to the men at lh.- trnnt nn BCCOlinl of.

down, the nation would un down iii

Mr. B. E, Howard, Manager, imperial Bank, being called upon stated he
was strongly In favor of conscription
and believed the whole west wns. In
the east tbe anti-eonscrlptlonistR only
were holding meetings to express their
views, and It Is time those support
ing conscription did some of the talking.
"I am not a partisan," he said." but
such few votes as I have cast happen
to be Liberal."
Mrs. .lohn Laurie wus the next
speaker. She said: "When 1 was a
girl lu England quite a long time ago,
I used to see numbers of young German boys, from fifteen years up, who
bad been sent over Trom Germany by
their parents to escape conscription,
i thought It wns a terrible thing that
those boys should have to leave their
native land because of such a law. and
live among total strangers, who spoke
a different tongue, and so 1 had a horror of conscription but now I believe
the time has come when we should
have conscription in Canada; we must
hnve It if the war is to bc won and I
believe It will work perfectly If a
wise exemption is used, for instance
perhaps a young man of twenty one
years or over is the mainstay of the
family, the father not being able to
snpport-thost- diq» mluit on him; In
such a case it would not be wise on
the pnrt of the government to conscript such an one, as provision would
have to be made for the maintenance
of his dependents. There are plenty of
men In Canada who can easily be
spared, who would never volunteer,
they think It is not Canada's war.

Worry is Worse than Work
Oh read by Mrs. .1  w Rnonto beforo
tbo Women's Institute)
Worry bus been .ailed "\Vomt*n*i
worst emotion". It Is almost unnecessary to dotlne or describe It. It lakes
most often the form of vain regrets
over past errors and groundless fear
of the future. A morbid distress over
whut Is past or what might have been
or a vexing and distressing anxiety
and a type of fear which may lake hold
of an otherwise healthy mind but
whicli If Indulged In may in time lead
to serious derangement. According to
an eminent authority "it is the one
great sliortcner of lire under civilization' as It certainly te one of the
things thnt makes life less worth living. Of nil forms of worry, the financial Is tho most frequent and for ordinary minds the most distressing,
there Is almost nothing that the worrisome do not worry over, .
Often worry Is one of the results of
overwork, oftener still nf 111 regnh-.ted
work, but oftencRt of nll of nn III regulated and discontented mind. Work
may be defined ns the continued application of strength or energy of
mind or body in the accomplishing of
nome task. There are many klndr, of
work nnd nt least two kinds of work
Art, those who aro tnternuted In or In
tov* wMb their work and thme who
do II merely from a sense nf duty or
under the compulsion of necessity.
Work thai we have to make ourselves
do is nf course much harder than work
that we delight to do whether It he
head work or hand work. One may
have a tusk that calls Tor close and
keen attention, although in the doing
of It one may not he called on to move
hand or foot which may tire one more
than work for the same time straining
every muscle of the body,
But easy or hard work Is less wearying and wearing than worry which Is
as bad for one as grinding without
grist for n mill. Worry Is a morbid
exercise of mind and nerve resulting
nl ways In excessive strain nnd con
sequent   wasteful   expenditure of en-
rgy nml exhaustion of vitality with
nut any consequent healthful reaction
leaving tbe one who Indulges in It or
who lias come under bondage to it
wearied without work, irritable without warrant, nnd most unreasonably
depressed. Work, on the other bund
within the limits of one's strength Is
healthful exercise of the bodily and
mental powers ensuring the enjoyment
of the luxury of resl and r,nnnd sleep
and resulting in the renewal and increase of the energy expended.   Kxer-
clse which may he regarded ns a form
of work Is universally acknowledged

against him without more reasonable
and probable cause for doing so.
It appears that there have been
complaints about the amount of Indiscriminate and careless shooting
that has been going on in the neighborhood along the Wycliffe road and
this kind of thing should of course be
stopped for the safety of the public.
The Provincial Police should be
encouraged In their efforts to locate
those responsible for such careless
and dangerous actions and have them
punished but they should make more
sure that they have, found the right
person before laying a criminal
charge against anyone.
In this connection it might be well
to remind parents of young boys that
tbey should he earefut to see that
their hoys arc not allowed the full
use of firearms. No boy under lfi,
according to the Game Aet, is permitted to use firearms unless accompanied by an adult. This Is a wise
provision and no sane person will object to the authorities seeing tbat it
is more generally observed.

lu County Court heard la-l Monday
The ruse of II. L. Sawyer of Kings-
gate against George Millet! of Klko,
which was tried here by a Jury early |
in May and in which the jury answered
certain questions submitted to them
hy Judge Thompson in such a way
that the lawyers on both sides contended that their client should win,
has now been decided by Judge
Thompson In favor of the plaintiff 1
Sawyer. The Judge holds that although the answers to some of the
questions were rather obscure ond
perhaps a llttle Inconsistent, still it
Is* his duty not to censtrue ;helr findings too strictly but *o gafiior from
the whole, of their findings tn conjunction with tin' evidence at the trial,
what the manifest Intention of the
Jury was and give effect to It. He has
decided that the Jury's Intention was
to give a verdict for the plaintiff
and that there was sufficient evidence to Justify this verdict and directs that Judgment shall go In favor
of Sawyer for $.ff)0 and the costs of
the Court,
Mr. W. A. Nisbet acted for Mr.
Sawyer and Mr. P. 0. Lawe of Ferule
and Mr. Spreull. appeared for Mr.
test ns an attraction to the Kimberley
miners, and the nnoBtlon of lumbermen's sports, such as log loading, tie
making, find sawing contests were
dealt with. It is the intention or the
management to interview every farmer in the District, with n view of inducing them to bring in exhibits, and
so take a live Interest ill the success of
Kast Kootenay's 1917 Fall Fair. The
ladles of the district are also urged to
prepare their fancy work, aud special
inducements will he offered fnr best
home, cooking. The advisability of
having a baby show with special prize,
for siime. will be considered at the
mxt meeting of the Association. It
Is to bo hoped that the citizens general
ly will lake a keecner Interest In the
success of the Fair as it Is only by
co-operation that success is attained.

not look upon the work as a mere lesson iu woodwork but turn their ill'il'l-
to production as a hobby. From the
busy and interested appearance of
those in the class at work that after*
noon the efforts along this line seem
to have attained a good measure of
success. Among the practical and useful articles to be seen In the exhibit
wire tables, benches, drawing Itoards,
writing decks, chicken feeders, beehives, etc.
During the term the im. "nvement of
tli' school and grounds ims also been
augmented in a practical manner by
the erection of L'OO feet of fence a-
round the school gardens, a bicycle
rack for six machines and several
Items of cluss room equipment which

laboratory hns been formed by tin* construction of scientific apparatus and
in this way the students are encouraged to add by their own effort to the
effectiveness of their own preparation In the race for efficiency.
In view of the ever Increasing world
competition and need for production
at the present time this term of education in accuracy and economy cannot be overestimated and with our
splendidly equipped centre which compares favorably with those of any nf
Hie larger cities In the Province, Cranbrook Is in a position to give to the
boys here a training whicb will en*

those from other parts of the world.

to utilize their spare time in pursuits
of art nnd utility.

Matters   Of   Immediate   Importance
The Editor of the Cranbrook Herald
Dear Sir.—I would like through the
columns of your paper to draw the
farmers' attention to the need of certain efforts on their part If we wish
to make the work of the above body
of service to tbe community.
First there are the crop competitions, one in potatoes and one in
The first   should  hnve a   full  entry
list   in  11   year like the present  when
nll the forces of the country are try-
lng  to  Increase  production.    A  man
may select the best quarter acre he .
has, giving his position at a later dale I
when far enough advanced to compare,
the   prizes   are   ample   although   not ;
quite as large as last year but at least j
six prizes in the class and each winner will receive a bonus of $.r, for a 1
record of cost and methods used in 1
producing the crop, on forms supplied
free by the Department.
In wheat, we are trying to secure
a mill and elevator through the efforts of the Board of Trade and lustl-
lue. We need, and expect some assistance from the government.
Now, I do not know nny one thing
that would hnve nion- Influence nn the
government than a report from the
Minister of Agriculture that bis crop
judges, when making their Inspection
of crop entries In Cranbrook District
had tn visit every farm on St. Marys
prairie and any other part of the
district growing wheat, as every man
hod made an entry In the competition.
If, Mr. Editor, that judge had to
spend two days of solid work In the
district instead of a couple or hours.
It would place Cranbrook on the map
aL-rlenUnrally as a producer of wheat
and potatoes and facilitate negotiations very much.
I have. h«d Inquiries as to what
ebunce a dry farmed crop has against
a watered one, a new land one against
one on old soil. etc.. The judge?
have always been well enough versed
to make tbe proper allowance In sueh
matters and I do not think 1 have
ever heard a complaint on tbis scon
The officers or the Institute have mail
one trip out trying to Induce entries
but It is impossible to go to everyone
or to catch each at home.
Kach entry Is one dollar for each
competition over aud above membership fee and as a rule here, ahout
seventy per cent of the entries get iu
the money list and every winner get*
?5 for a record of his operations which
can be made out in about five minutes.
Potutoes. one quarter acre, wheat nne
acre. At the same time let nu remind
all interestLd thnt any membership
fees received before July 1st. nt Sl
each, are (.-..plicated by tne government to same i-mount up to $5, after
that we lose :''.*=: government payment

.Sir Wilfred claims that tiiere never
wus any danger nf Invasion of Canada
on the part of (Iermany.
lias Sir Wilfred proved himself to bc
the possessor of exceptional prophetic
It wns only a short period before
the declaration of war that he and
many of bis colleagues were declaring
with emphasis that there, wus no danger of war with Germany, the result
being that the construction of three
Canadian dreadnoughts was rendered
impossible anil a wrong Impression
conveyed to (iermany of Canadian
loyalty to the mother country at the
most critical time,
Sir Wilfred adds that he believed
nines he imagine the danger is past)
a (Ierman victory would envelope Canada in the black shroud of Germnn
insolence, cruelties and barbarities.
How could all this be accomplished
without invasion?
The great aim of Germany wns colonial expansion and the frustration of
their original plan of campaign during
the early stages is regarded by historians ot the Great War in the light of
a miracle and due in a lurge measure
to the Indomitable courage of the-
Allied troops.
The menace of invasion faces ns
until German militarism is utterly destroyed and to attain this result the
whole resources of the Kmpire must
be utilized. Delay tn re-lnforcing the
troops at the, front means prolongation of the war and the unnecessary
loss nf thousands of valuable lives.
Sir Wilfred is asking Canada to
submit to this delay apparently out of
consideration for the feelings of a
small nnruly element,
Sir Robert Borden declares that the
Immediate re-lnforcement ot out
troops is urgent, insistent and Imperative; he speaks with Ihe voice of full
authority aftor first hand investigation.
Necessity knows no law.
This Is not the time for quibbling
