mude history for the folio worn of the
royal und ancient game in this part
of the country. The weather conditions, tuken on the whole, were excellent, the hospitality of the entertaining elub was limitless, and the
general arrangements were ouch that
the enjoyment of the visitors was
complete and unrestrained. As the
list of registrations show, the visitors
came from almost every town in the
Crow's Nest district which boasts a
golf course, from as far away as
Lethbridge, twenty-four men and sixteen ladies from outside points taking
part, in addition to the twenty-one
men and fourteen ladies who entered
from the Cranbrook Club.
The new 6600 yard course of the
Cranbrook Club was given a thorough
try-out, and while it is realized that
it is not the work of a few weeks
to get a course in order, it was the
general opinion of the visitors that
splendid work had been done in getting the course in such good condition for play.
Saturday saw the players making
the round of the course to get their
qualifying score, from which the handicaps were to be worked out. Sunday the main events were put under
way, finishing up the program the
following evening,

Inaugural Sermons on Sunday
Last Urge Strengthening
oi Ideals
Good congregations welcomed the
new pastor, Rev. Bryce Wallace, last
Sunduy at both services. In the
morning, Mr. G. Moir introduced the
pastor and his wife to the people in
u few well-chosen words, to which
Mr.  Wulluce suitably replied.
As this Sunduy hud been set upurt
us a special day of thanksgiving for
the completion of the first year of
the work of the United Church of
Canada, a pastoral letter from the
Moderator, Rev. Dr. Geo. Pidgeon,
wus read. This letter stressed the
necessity for*thanks to Almighty God
for the amazing success which had
uttended the work of the United
Church in the first year. A spiritual
fuct hud been achieved, new and
joyous fellowships had been entered
upon, wider conceptions of the Kingdom of (iod attained, and greater
fields of service opened up. Then
the Church's financial objective had
been gained, for the first time in
Canada the great sum of four million dollars had been raised by one
organization for the maintainance
and extension of the Church work
at home and abroad.
For his morning's message, the
new pastor took for his text the opening words of the 121 Psalm—"Unto
the Hills." After dwelling upon the
wonder and the glory of the mountains, their healthful and inspiring
power, the speaker suggested that it
wus necessary in these days, when
the after effects of the war were
causing a slump in idealism, to look
up to the strengthening and ennobling hills of moral and spiritual truth.
The Bible presented many such great
hills, including the hill of Sinai and
the hill of Calvary. Christianity was
a hilltop religion, and Christ challenged us to climb as He did the hills
of sacrifice and duty, thus making
visible the Christian virtues of truth,
love and righteousness. Only as we
climb together with Christ as our
leader, could any Church prosper and
dn good.
n the evening, Mr. Wallace took
the life of Joab us his subject—"the
man who almost succeeded." The
pitfulls which await the strong and
courageous soul Vere dwelt upon.
Middle and old age held their special
temptations, and the folly of maturity was a much more serious thing
than the folly of youth. Reference
was made to the splendid results of
the United Church work, but to trust
in strength and past success was to
invite failure. Eternal vigilance was
the price of safety. Only by complete surrender to the will of God
in Christ could life be understood,
und finally triumph when a person or
Church is fully consecrated, there
can be no defeat nnd no failure,
The junior choir at the morning
lervlce rendered an anthem very acceptably and the senior choir at night
sang with fine interpretation "Hark,
Hnrk,   Mv  Soul."

Fund, the donors wishing to remain
A very hearty vole of thanks was
given to Miss Duncan, of the Pine
Tree, for her work in the raHle for
the scarf.
A letter was received ro present to
Lady Byng. As the Cranbrouk Institute feel that sn much is needed
for the crippled children, it was decided to write to the secretary of
Women's Institutes and propose that
donations be sent in and a bed endowed in Lady Byng's name at the
Queen  Alexandra Solarium.
Judges were named for the annual flower show on August 19th,
so please keep in mind the date, as
we hope to have the lust show yet.

Mrs. Kuhnert then gave two solus,
which were much enjoyed, "Still Unexpressed." and for an encore, "Vou
und I in Love." At this part of the
meeting. Instead nf the regular paper, a series of sketches specially
written by Mrs. Constantine were

O'Reilly, "For Compulsory School

Trustee"; Mrs. Cooper, as Mrs, Lawrence, "For Fair Treatment of Delinquent Children under IS"; und

fur a widow and her young children,"
brought the sketch to a close. The

Close Finish to Campaign on
Saturday Night; Totals
Run High
Hue to a disagreement between
ihe management of the Cranbrook
Herald and Mr. .1. C, Mayes, a contest manager employed by the Herald to conduct the recent circulation
campaign, a delay was occasioned in
determining the winners of the prizes
in this contest. On account of certain
actions on the pan of said manager
in connection with the conclusion of
the campaign, the Herald saw fit to
take certain steps in the matter as
well as to obtain legal advice In or-
der thai the interest of all candidates
might lie properly safeguarded, this
necessitating a postponement of the
announcement. In consequence of
ihi- some repou, hav,* been circulated a- t„ the result nnd the integrity
of certain panic, was questioned. After mature consideration, the Herald
is of the opinion that not mu- enn-
didate in the campaign was guilty
of any wrong-doing bul lhat the contest manager did act in such a manner as to cast suspicion.
The   Herald  circulation  campaign
came to a close on Saturday'! venillg
last with all contestants working
hard right up to the last minute, For
most of them it meant the conclusion
of -ix weeks of hard work dining
which time they had put to a test
tlieir ability in salesmanship, From
the start the three leaders in the
i put up a great fight to capture
the grand prize which the Herald
put up. Unfortunately we could not

have liked to have done to repay
them ■'-*!• the beneficial work they
lid in securing for the Herald a circulation which means that it now goes

i-rook and all the neighboring towns

P.E.I,   and   International   Polities
It often happens that afflictions
and disappointments ure the sources
of brighter days ahead. For ten
years a treaty existed between the
British North America and the United States of America for the interchange of the products of each. During the American Civil War very bitter feeling existed towards England
for the supposed sympathy to the
stutes that decided to withdraw from
the union and from separate confederacy. The famous Alabama case
added fuel to the flame. The consequence wus that the treaty wus an-
nuled. This wus a greut disadvantage
to the provinces, for the only market
during the five years of the war for
the outs aud potatoes wus the United
Stutes. This act wus the chief one
thut brought ubout confederation,
which has formed the greut Dominion
from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
When u Mingle title for the united
provinces wus discussed in the parliament, it wus suggested to abolish
the name of "The Kingdom of Canada," but there were wiseacres in
this us in every gathering, who
thought that it would not be pleasing
lo our neighbors to the south. We
had always too many among us who
looked more to what neighbors
thought than exercising a spirit of
independence und self reliance.
There happened to be among them
one who knew his Bible well, and he
suggested the words so appropriate
in the Old Testament, "His Dominion
shull be from sea to sea and from
river to river to the ends of the
earth." Hence we have the Dominion of Canada, now one of the most
important sections of the British Empire.

way of grain and other products.
But this was not going to last. It
led the provinces to cultivate separately interchange of products to the
South in preference to promoting
closer commercial relations with each
other eust and west. The civil war
being ended, it gave the American
people neater opportunity to engage
in developing the agricultural and
other industries. lt positively decreased trade iu some cases between
the provinces, and in other cases prevented possible expansion. It destroyed the St. Lawrence as a great
Canadiun transportation route. It
made the United States the. carrier
of Canadian exports abroad, depleted
the returns und profits of Canadian
railways, helped to delay the building
of the liiternutiuiiul between Halifax
and Quebec, and made the provinces
dangerously dependent upon American fiscal will und pleusure.
Maritime   Exports
By 180(1 the trade of New Brunswick had grown to twelve millions,
and that of Nova Scotia to twenty-
two millions—a total commerce for
the four provinces of one hundred
und forty-seven million dollars. The
chief exports of Canada were animals
and agricultural products, also lumber and its manufactured products.
Those of New Brunswick were lumber and its products, and ships; while
Nova Scotia exported largely of fish
and coal.
During this period Prince Edward
Island's exportation consisted almost
exclusively of oats and potatoes. Ship
building and timber were also important branches of production. But for
many years past shipbuilding may
be said to have been an abandoned
industry. The forests being greatly
depleted of the timber required in
building ships, and iron becoming the
chief material, in a short time virtually excluded further engagement to

practice to ke>p in tip-lup form. Auction bridge is no exception to this rule,
and a player who wants to keep his
form or improve, can do so only by
constant play and practice. One of the
best means of practice is to work out
the problems ol play and bidding that
are given in these articles. They -stimulate the mind and give the pU>er thu
benefit of other points of view that he
might ot her witte nave mimed. Here are
several bands, forexample, where proper
bidding and play would have been well
rewarded. See what you would have
done and then compare results with
the writer's analysis.
Have you ever noticed how often
certain cards or groups of cards will be
duplicated in one or more hands? An
observing player can gain many a trick
by looking out for these duplications or
repetitions. The writer taw a good example the other night.

dealt and bid one heart. A and
and B bid one spade. Z bid two hearts
and all passed. A opened the eight ol
spades and Z won tha trick with the
king. In order to make game and rubber
Z must win nine tricks. What was his
best plan of play to accomplish this result? Z noted that he held a hand
divided among the four suits In the
ratio of 6-3-3-1. In his own hand he
held six hearts and in the dummy
three. If there was a duplication or
repetition of the division of the cards
In his own hand and those of the heart
suit, It would be divided in the same
ratio 6-3-3-1. This is, one of Z's opponents would hold a singleton heart.
If that conclusion were correct, was
there any guide as to what the singleton heart would be? Z noted that he
held the singleton king of diamonds so
that If one other player held a singleton
heart, it should be the king. Having
analyzed the hand in that manner, Z
led the four of hearts at trick two and
when A played the deuce, Z played the
act from dummy and B's singleton
king dropped. Every one at the table
•aid: "How did you guess that?" So Z
explained the frequency of repetitions
or duplications not only of the distributions of the suits but »lso of the exact
card or cards. It's really very interesting so bt on the lookout for hands of
this- type and If vou run across am
good examples, send them In. Z's apptl

rE passing of Empire Day and thc King's Inrth-
day remind Us of many things—of the vast
•extent of the British Empire, and of respect for its
titular head, ot the ties that bind it together, and
of our own part right here in British Columbia.
The ties of blood are cemented with the everyday
ties of trade and commerce, in our case founded upon
the great lumber industry. This serves to remind
us that Canada has the greatest reserves of soft
wood timber in the Empire, and British Columbia
has half the timber in Canada. Our service to thc
Empire must be therefore to supply, in perpetuity
the products of thc forests. This can be done pro
vided the forests are kept free of fire.
Forests renew themselves naturally after log
ging, from seed already in thc soil and that blown
in by the wind. If the young trees are burned
there is less chance of them coming in again, and
especially if the same fire that kills Ihe seedlings
kills the parent tree.
Fortunately, most forest fires ean be prevented.
for wc know lhat from eigthy to ninety per cent of
the forest fires each year are the result of human
action or carelessness. The individual can do the
Empire no better service than sec that no forest fire
can be traced lo his careless act, such as the dropping of lighted matches or tobacco in the woods, or
the leaving of liis campfire burning.
AS a result of a special effort put on in the past
six weeks, this issue of The Herald goes to a
far larger circle of readers than the paper has ever
enjoyed before. The list of subscribers has swelled
so rapidly, iu fact, that it has not been possible to
make all the preparation necessary. It is not simply
a host of new names come suddenly on to the
list, but new associations and interests are encountered that must have consideration; new viewpoints
are met with that ueed looking into; new districts
are being served; aud generally speaking there is
need for a survey of the situation, so that the way
lor the paper to best serve its big family can bc
arrived at.
One result of the Herald campaign just closed
is to put the quietus for all time on the idea that
there is "not room for two papers in Cranbrook."
Time was, as a matter of fact, and not so very many
years ago, when with less people in the cily and district, there were more than two papers here. Be
that as it may, the fact remains that The Herald
now has a circulation thai few weeklies in this province, or the west exceed, and it will now address
itself to the task of serving thc district in its greatly
enlarged capacity in the fullest and most unstinted
way possible. Sheer circulation is not an asset
alone, it is also a responsibility, Many hundred
people have shown confidence in this paper by giving it their support, and in exchange for this friendship and goodwill it is felt there must be an adequate
return. This is the task now confronting this paper,
and it is not au easy one.

IT is refreshing to find that in spite of the breakneck pace the world lives in at the present time,
humanity is still swayed by the emotions that permit sympathy to register its presence by way of
generous impulses. Thc world is moving fast, but
so long as the time is taken to pass the kindly
word, or to do the little self-sacrificing action that
is going to help others, it is evidence enough that
the milk of human kindness has not entirely soured
by the pace that is said to be killing the finer refinements.
The response made by the people of the Yahk
district, and thc city of Nelson and its contiguous
territory to the suggestion for monetary help for
the family whose numbers were so tragically decimated by thc recent fire at Yahk, show this to Ue
true.   The gift of money in itself can never assuage
the grief the parents must even feel at the thought
of their (our little ones dying as they did; nor is it
really a matter as to whether the family had been
so sorely stricken as to be practically bercfit of this
world's goods. What touched people's hearts and
made them ready to give, was the inward reflection
that such a calamity might easily happen to any

THERE is something inspiring about achievement
When one journeys to a famous city and sees
wonderful buildings, fine artistic homes, a tremendous fabric of commerce and industry, they are incited to go back and try to do something along thc
linc of attainment. And the way to success is always open to those who know how to play the
Fortune does not come by luck. Success
comes from playing the recognized game of business,
taking advantage of economic laws, giving the
people some better service than they had before.
The pages of any well circulated magazine
or newspaper will give the ambitious man hints about
the way of business. In the magazine he will see
the notices of products that have been boomed by
advertising. He will note many articles that became
a household word through the power of publicity.
A few years ago the producers of these articles may
have been obscure men. But they had faith to go
ahead and promote their products through publicity,
and a great harvest has resulted.
So it is in thc use of publicity iu the newspaper field. All the big successes in retail trade
have been produced by advertising. A number of
jears ago in many cases these firms were unknown or
non-existent, or only starting in a small way.
Their owners were students of human nature.
They knew that if a concern kept its name and its
business before the eyes of the people, if it constantly told about thc tilings it was selling, it would
arouse public interest and get more than its sh»«
of trade. When people get lhat idea and advertise
telligently and give good stuff, success is sure to
conic as anything can be in this world of chance.
It is a short path to success, and the door is alwiy»
open to newcomers,

Roosevelt, wasn't It, who Invented the term "soulless corporations?" There's been a remarkable change
since those days on both sides of the International boundary, end probably throughout the world.
The latest evidence of which is the public park
and playground that Is being given to the eity of Trail
by the Consolidated Mining k Smelting Company. Several acrea belonging te the big smelter concern are being
planted to trees, shrubs and grass, or made into tennis
courts and playgrounds for the youngsters.
From Rossland the company's motor trucks
brought 180 loads of black dirt in which flowers can
grow. A dozen men were set at work leveling off the
ground under the direction of a landscape gardener.
Water for irrigation will be supplied from the company's
mains, the whole tract fenced with an iron railing or
concrete wall, and then turned over to the city park

"Good business" for the Consolidated? Certainly—but the sort of thing that can't be measured in dollars and cents. And also the sort of thing that wasn't

It is announced that Hon. Charles Dunning, Premier of Saskatchewan, is to enter the King Cabinet as
Minister of Railways, and that a seat is to be provided
for him in the House by the resignation ot Mr. Darke,
liberal member for Regina. This will give Saskatchewan three Cabinet Ministers with portfolio, and will,
if the King government remains long enough in office,
assure the expenditure of some 160,000,000 on the completion of the Hudson Bay Railway. Thus the country
will pay a staggering price for the luxury of a lop-sided,
minority government,
According to the census of 1921, Saskatchewan
had a population of 767,610, of whom only 396,936 were
of English, Irish and Scottish origin, the balance being
made up chiefly of continental European races. Germans numbered 68,202; Austrians, 39,738; Scandinavians, 68,382; Russians, 46,343; Ukranlans, 28,097; Dutch,
16,6,19. That a province with so small a population, so
distributed racially, should be given three of the- most
important portfolios, while Ontario, Manitoba and New
Brunswick are as yet unrepresented in the cabinet, would
be a national jest, if it were not so bold an outrage on
the representative principles on which the Canadian federal system is based. But this travesty on national government simply reflects a phase of the derelict cabinet'i
desperate struggle against the electoral condemnation
pronounced against it lut October,—Port Arthur Newt.

Mr. A. B. Sanborn, general manager of the East Kootenay Power Co.
at Fernie, has announced that work
will commence almost immediately on
the ejection of a big auxiliary steam
plant to be located either at Fernie

cost of erecting this plant is expected
to run in the neighborhood of one
million dollars. Owing to the increasing demand for electrical power
in the Crow's Nest Pass, the com

taxed almost to capacity and the

order that all consumers may be assured of n steady flow of energy.
"One of the best yet" is the fairly
unanimous opinion of the 1926 Chautauqua at Creston, which closed on
Wednesday night and, probably, tha
best possible evidence that it was real
good is furnished In the fact that the
attraction is booked for 1927 with a
list of guarantor! numbering over 40,
with signatures of citizens from Porthill, Lister, Canyon, Erickson, Creston, Wynndel and Sirdar. A meeting of the guarantors will be held
in a few days to wind up affairs.
1026 witnesses a deficit pretty much
on a par with other years, but in
spite of this most of this year's backers of Chautauqua are on the contract for 1927.—Creston Review.
Very Rev. A. K. Melntyre, of Rossland, vlcar-general, whose jurisdiction extends over the Catholic parishes of the Kootenay and Okanagan,
leaves this morning for the east, on
the mission of obtaining missionaries
to man fields in the Kootenay district. A present the parishes of Salmon Arm, Armstrong and Golden
are served hy the expedient of doubling them up with others, for instance,
Rev. A. L. Melntyre of the Slocan
parish having to cover the Golden
area as well. In addition to these
cases, there are various parishes that
would he divided if the priests were
available to man them. The vicar-'
genera> will be in the east a month
or ap, rpturpiijg early in July.
Many cars on Sunday last made
their way out to the Mission, where
the annual observance of the Feast
of Corpus Christi took place. After
the service at the church, the usual
procession was formed, and it mude
a picturesque scene, with the speciul
robiis worn for the occasion, and
some carrying the customary green
boughs. Between two and three hundred people took part in the procession, including many besides the Indians.
The first issue of "The Legionary," by which title the official organ of the newly formed Canadian
Legion of the British Empire Service
League is to be known, has reached
the Herald offlce. Us present form
is eighteen pages, published its a
semi-monthly. It naturally deals
quite exhaustively with thc successful outcome of the proposals to amalgamate the various bodies of ex-
service men under the one head, and
a picture of Lieut-Gen. Sir Percy
Lake, of Victoria, who is the first
president of the Canadian Legion,
very fittingly adorns the front cover.
"The Legionary" has been entrusted
with a great task. This task is undertaken at a time whon the Canadian Legion of the B.E.S.L. is in the
course of construction. It is the
hope of the publishers that "The Legionary" may be of great assistance
in establishing a true perspective of
the Legion in the minds of those who
are asked to support it, and in other
ways promote that unity among war
veterans in Canada that shall stand
as a constant example and inspiration for national and Empire unity.

The Fisher Block at Kimberley is
now completed and, already, tenants
have invaded the convenient offices
to be found therein. Three of the
suites are already occupied, and one
other rented to a tenant who will
shortly remove to the new building.
The rooms, which are situate at the
corner of Spokane Street and Deer
Park Avenue, and over Chatson'e
confectionery and the Kimberley Electric, are admirably adapted for office purposes.
The addition to the structure has
been satisfactorily carried out by Mr.
Colin J. Campbell; the plumbing and
heating have been excellently done
by Mr. J, Barton, who also had a
share in the designing of the suites
and who had the contract for excavating the basement; the Kimberley
Electric Co. had charge of the lighting and electric heating (water) and
have completed the work in a creditable manner.
The corner is much improved by
the change, and the building is quite
an addition to the business premises
of Kimberley.

Program For
Kimberley Day
Arrangements   Being   Made
That Will Ensure Full
Day's Pleasure
Gradually but surely there are being put into concrete shape many
of the bi-jr things which will make
July First a day of wonderful attractions ami pleasant memorise for
thousands of people who are sure to
jro to Kimberley to witness the third
annual Dominion Day celebration.
The people will be there in record-
breaking numbers. They are go-
inn from the west and from the east
and from the south. Cranbrook i«-
members and appreciates the large
numbers which came down to help
make its Empire Day celebration a
success, and many of Cranbrook
people are already planning to be
here all day two weeks from next
Thursduy. Along the Crow's Nest
Pass, into Alberta, friends are writing from Coleman, Blairmore aud
Pincher Creek, saying they are going to attend Dominion Day celebration at Kimberley. Creston, Nelson,
und the boundary cities will also be
well represented. But no matter how
large the crowd, Kimberley will be
prepared, as she always has been
prepared, to entertain and accommodate all who will make themselves
happy here for a day and wish tht
day could be stretched into a whole
There are now being held frequent
meetings of the chairmen of the several committees, and from the different reports it is plain that matters in connection with the program
for July !-t are getting in pretty
good shape, A great variety of legitimate sports and amusements, in
some cases different from outdoor
celebrations previously held will be
included in this Canadian anniversary program here, and the whole
proceedings "n Dominion Day will
1* cram full of interest for young
an«l uTd.
Among the attractions being arranged for is a baseball game between the Bonner's Ferry team and
a nine from the Kimberley district.
There may also be a football game
between a Kimberley elevt-n and a
Michel ttam. as the champions of the
Crow's Nest district. The proceedings '.ull -'pen with the parade in the
morning as usual, and in the evening
there will be the carnival and the
big dance, which is to be held in the
Odd Fellows* Hall this year.

"Cynthia want- to show you her
things." Air . Shannon added. She
too wa plainly relieved. She was
quite Bbn ■■'■ enough to know that,
whih- a woman may not want a man
herself, she can -!ill be very much
averse to anyone else's having him.
Molly looked surprised as Cynthia went quickly to the old tin trunk
by her mother's bed. She was more
surprised when she .suw the pile of
really beautiful garments lifted
adoringly from thick swutlfings of
tissue paper. Soft nainsooks and val-
fenciennes, dainty ribbons and organdies, a silk petticoat—last of all a
shimnniy white crepe-de-chine wedding dress, with silk stockings and
gloves and white kid pumps to match.
"But" - Molly glanced, mystified,
from tho finery, so out of place in
the bare, ugly little room, to her
mother "1 don't understand. Surely Aunt Lena —"
When Mrs. Shannon seemed to
hesitate, Cynthia spoke up, proudly, ",lu, ire gave me the money."
"He wanted she should have
pretty clothes and—she wanted them
so—it didn't hardly seem right to
refuse," her mother amended hurriedly, smoothing and glossing things
over, as usual.
For some moments Molly said
nothing at all, but she turne,d very
white. The shimmery silk dress
slipped unnoted from her lap, und
Cynthia picked it up and brushed an
imaginary smudge resentfully off it.
Then Molly got to her feet; her voice
shook with passion, "Mother," she
said, "how could you—let her?"
She broke off. Another of th*
old blasting tornadoes had her in
its grip. She felt queer and dizzy.
Remembering, though, her last humiliation and shape, she fought
grimly for self-control. Even at
that, the next words were barbed
with poison. "We've always been
poor," she went on, when she could
trust herself to speak, "but at least
we haven't been downright—common before. We've never taken
anything we didn't have to have.
Why,  it's  no   better than the way

went on.
"Poverty blunLs all the delicacy,
destroys all the beauty of human re-'
lations. Being poor together comes to
the same thing as being savages to-'
gather, It makes people snarl and
snap and fly ut one another's throats.
It leaves no distances, no reserves, no
nuances. A reasonable amount of
wealth serves as a pad, a silence wall
between those so unfortunate as to
be thrust willy-nilly into families. It
saves them the disaster of finding one
another out.
"Why do people in families hate
one another. The girls who room together at the dormitory almost always hate one another, too. Is it for
the same reason, or is there something deeper ami more sinister about

She could earn part of ber board and
thus have more money to send home.
There were other reasons, too, of
course—nameless, yet breath-taking
reasons . . . .She came back u day
earlier than she intended, suiting
Aunt Lena's convenience about taking her to the train. The onslaught
of students would not begin until the
moiTow and the campus was almost
deserted as when she left it three
weeks before. She walked the mile
and a half from the depot, partly to
save the ear fare, partly because she
wanted to greet at her leisure the
beloved environs. Here, it seemed to
Molly, her real life had begun, und
she had felt herself of lute so perilously near to losing it.
Reports of  Recent  Presbyterial Meetings Written by Mrs.
* W. B. McFarlane, Local Delegate. .,
(Continued from Latt Week)
Miss Sinclair, speaking at devotional at afternoon session on the passage
from John 15 "The true vine and the
branches," gave an inspiring message
lo all as we go into this union, ail
working together to spread the gospel
to all lands and people. We can
only accomplish the task set before
us by the Holy Spirit working through
each member as the sap flows from
the vine to every branch, not by
night, but by strength. Mrs. Bingham, president of St. John's auxiliary,
gave an address of welcome in which
she expressed the feeling of all as
being mixed with joy and pain. This
united society was a newly-born organization and we had to expect pain,
anxiety, and just a little fear as to
the outcome, but were looking forward to tbe inaugural services for the
joy of seeing the fulfilment of our
hopes a healthy, strong organization
fitted to take up the task of carrying
the gospel news to every nation who
knows it not. —*—■_-_
The New Million!
1 Mr. Pelky, minister of St. John's,
who spoke also to us in the new task,
said the new is the old in a new fellowship in broader fields of activity
and new society legions, the new in
all the old but with more fields of
labor added, new people added and
a broader vision of the great work
of missions. The greatest need of
the day is the church, the hope of the
future is the true church of God
the one institution that has kept
alive the principals of good. He told
a story of a real estate salesman who

buy the wedding clothes for them
Cynthia had risen, too, and her
face was as white as Molly's. The
wedding gown lay on the table between them, limp and inarticulate,
like a peace offering spurned. "I'll
thank you not to compare Jo an'
mo to negroes," she said. Her voice,
despite the tremble, was hard and
resentful. In it rankled the jealousy
and bitterness of years. She had
loved Jo all her life—and hated Molly for making him appear stupid and
ridiculous. "Besides, you didn't have
to have your precious old university,
did you? You went off and left us
to shift the best we could while you
had it fine and easy. And now you
come back thinking you're too good
to wipe your feet on the rest of us—
talking about negroes .  .  . ."
"Girls—girls!" Mrs. Shannon implored, terrified at the hornet's nest
she had pulled down unwittingly
about her ears.
But Molly's anger had flared
down before this stunning revelation
of what was in her sister's heart.
Cynthia had been always the gentlest
and most docile of creatures; the
only one of the brood, indeed, who
had never openly resented the too
often domineering tactics of the self-
appointed mentor. "I'm sorry," Molly said tonelessly, as she turned again
to the machine. "I shouldn't have
spoken as I did, of course. I had
no idea you felt like that . . . ."
That night, before she went to bed,
Molly wrote in an old notebook, under a heading already commented on
at  considerable, length:
getting things ready for the girls who
would be arriving now on every train.
But she found time to tell Molly the
little that had happened in her absence, while the two ate a quiet supper on the corner of one of the long
tables iii the empty dining room. The
faculty club had opened the duy before, claiming the lasl of her summer
"mealers,"—Stephen Renfro included. His name had not been actuully
mentioned before, und when Molly's
face lost perceptibly some of its radiance, the astute little fairy godmother added casually that he never
went by without looking in to pass
a joke with her.
They were on tho front porch,
making some show of conversation
and both keyed for an unhurried
footstep on the walk, when he came
round the corner—toll, graceful, distinguished in white flannels and dark
coat. He swept off his hat with a
little extra half-humorous flourish at
sight of Molly, whose heart wus
thumping so painfully she dared not
trust herself at first to speak. He
shook hands, asked how sho was, and
settled himself, apparently content,
for ono of their old-time three-cornered chats. But when Mrs. Parker,
making plausible excuse of "all them
pesky girls," slipped away, he leaned
forward abruptly and took both Molly's hands in his.
Poor little 'un," he said in his
half-teasing, half-compassionate deep
voice, "she's even littler and tireder
than when she went away. Soon
there'll be nothing left but the mere
plans and specifications for a wom-
'Do you know," he continued,
when they were on the "perip"—a
line of tree shadow around a shining,
silver square of moonlight which wus
the campus—"if you had stayed
away a single minute longer, I should
Molly, who had not dared look at
him since the amazing incident, asked mechanically, "What would you
have done?"
"Come after you I" he. averred in
a low growl, glooming down at her
with that admixture of the paternal
and the lover which she had learned
long since to adore. Her heart
skipped a beat, though, at the notion
of him in Laws' Chapel—in the one
room and lean-to, She turned icy to
her toes, as on the day when he had
criticized tbe story. "This town has
been just about as cheerful as a

her a quick look.

Clark k Ellisons', the largest and
best appointed general store in Chapman Camp, is moving its quarters.
Henceforth the store will be located
In the old office building.
The old offlce hut goes back to the
time of earliest construction at Chapman Camp. After it had served for
an office it become a dormitory. Last
winter it was a dressing room for the
skating rink. Its final service as
store and post office marks the beginning of the end of Chapman
Camp's original landmark.
The reason of the change is subject for every Chapman Campite to
congratulate himself very heartily.
The old Recreation Hall is the other
old landmark which has now served
its turn and is to be replaced. Clark
A Ellisons' store comes down and at
this corner of Chapman Camp will
be erected a handsome new hall with
which was going to ctxists when his
lots were sold, and right in the centre
of the picture was a church. This
man, though not a church-goer, or
believer, yet felt that the greatest
inducement he could offer was a
church in this new town. The church
is needed today more than ever.    It
the background of law and order.
The immigrant coming into our country with his own code of law, sometimes not the highest, needs the
church. He comes to this Canada
so new, so big, and with such a glamour over it and in the freedom of
all this newness und bigness often
forgets the church, so that we have
a comparatively small number of
church-goers. A great part of our
new task is to keep in touch with the
stranger and new Canadian. Oh,
thut we could see the need and our
duty as clearly as we saw the challenge and responded to it in the Great
War. The Congregationalists brought
in a new field—Africa—with twelve
missionaries carrying on the work.
The Methodists wtre in Japan und in
the home and foreign field. The
Presbyterians who started the work,
with u handful of women in Prince
Edward Island in 1825, then a society
of the church in 1876, in 1914 a
united W.M.S. and today goes into
union with a band of 300 workers in
the field. What a wonderful development has taken place in the last
sixty years! It was a wonderful
venture of fuith when these people
started their little societies und now
we start on an even greater venture
of faith when followers of John
Knox and John Wesley come together
and march on to greater things. Wi
have examples of great faith in thq
Bible when Moses ventured to take
out a gang of slaves and lead them
to a new country and make free citizens of them; when Paul ventured
out to preach Jesus to the gentiles,
and examples of our missionary work-
as when Livingstone ventured to
Africa and Robertson, the great
pioneer of the Presbyterian church,
ventured out west to preach and
build up church homes for the western settlers. But in this venture we
are taking into union, as well as
privileges, we have to assume tremendous responsibilities. Part of our
new task is to establish in every home
family prayer, a difficult thing, but
worth while.
The  Call  te Service
The time is now rapidly "coming
when this ideal will be an accomplished fact. We hear a great deal about
the church of our fathers. Let us
think of it rather as the church of
our children, and let us try to make
straight the crooked paths and remove the hills of difficulty from their
feet. Every woman In our society
must contribute of her best to the
auxiliary of her church. Her response to the call to service must
be whole-hearted. If we are going
to realize our ideal we must hove:
1, Vision. We have got to see
the path with the watch-word "forward." We will have to work together. "Come and let us build up
the wall." Add to vision moral intuition—see that this union is part
of the will of God, see the path and
then go on in the strength of God.
As Presbyterians we do not ond are
not expected to leave our Presby-
terianism behind ub to go into the
United Church. Rather we should
take the very best of our "ism" whether it Methodist or Presbyterian,
with us.
Sympathy and patience. These
nre essential if we are going to unite
ith our holding different viewpoints. If we face our problems
und difficulties in the spirit of sympathy and patience, we shall find the
dution easy.
8. Daring. Let us take up our
now task with daring and boldness.
No uncertainty. Let ub forget the
expression that we hear so often,
"getting bock to Christ," and instead,
take for our watch-word "going forward with ChriBt" to our new service.
Inaugural Service*
The inauguaral services were held
in Wesley Church. I wish 1 could

We have our Young Peoples' Societies who look to us for help und inspiration in their work. We have,
our task of mothering the baby and
mission bunds in our church, the work
of looking up strangers in our town

church; our hospital visiting bringing
a word of cheer to the shut-in people. There is diversity in union—we

The inaugural service on Wednesday evening wus a beautiful one as
well us impressive. The three
streams of representatives of the
meeting societies entered the church
from different angles and mingled in
the procession to their appointed
places, singing with the congregation
the hymn "The Church's One Foundation." They sang the whole hymn
through. During the service they
ulso partook of the Lord's Supper.
Thursday morning the devotional
exercises, which were very impressive, and prayer for the success of
the union, went up to our Father from
the lips of three of four devout women, who felt thut whatever success
attained was according to the
faith and zeal we put into it,
Mrs. Sipprell wus still occupying
the chair, and accompanying her on
the platform wus Mrs. J, S. Gordon,
president of the Presbyterian section,
she declared the union meeting open
for the transaction of business. The
roll call from both sections showed
219 delegntes present, The forenoon
wus taken up in appointing committees, etc., nominations committee,
scrutineers, finance, resolutions,
Mrs. Crysdale, from the Weslej
Chureh, gave the welcoming address,
which she did with much feeling and
I um sure thut none present would
feel that they did not receive the
warmest welcome as she guve in her
own home to myself and Mrs. Gurr
we were made most welcome there
and enjoyed our stay with her very
much indeed.
Mrs. McKee responded to the ad
dress of welcome and said that we
must forget our units and remember
that love suffereth long and is kind,
and we, too, must be ready in God's
Strength to do our part in cementing
this union und we must not forget
that we have a greater work to do
now than before. A feature of the
afternoon session wns the introduction of missionaries who work under
the W.M.S. of the United Church.
India, Trinidad, Africa, China, Japan
and the various phases of the work
in Canada were all represented
the personnel of the missionaries and
it was emphasized thnt the "sun nev
e*r sets" on the work of the society
throughout the world.
Organizing   the   United   Body
The next two sessions were tuken
up with the reading of the suggested
by-laws und suggested constitution
for auxiliaries und Presbyterial societies and conference branches of the
W.M.S. of the United Church of Can
ada. These were read and duscuss-
ed and a few recommendations were
made such us changing the wording
of some of them.
On Thursday evening St. John
treated the delegates to a splendid
banquet, following which we were, in
vited to the church to see a very
pretty little pageant put on by the
C.G.l.T. girls, entitled "Lighten to
Lighten," a missionary play, bringing into it heathen children fron1
China, Japan, India and Africa.
This was much enjoyed.
On Friday, the closing day of our
conference, the election of officers
took place, the nominating committee bringing in a slate of officers,
We had equal representation from
each section, 100 from Methodists,
100 from Presbyterians and 10 from
Congregational, und the officers were
elected. Mrs. J. S. Gordon was
elected president.
How a Deficit Wai Met
Mrs. Saunby, superintendent of
the Victoriu district, could not give
her report when first called on. She
wanted a little more time; she said
they were behind in their funds, but
she had faith in the prayers of her
people und felt sure thut the sum uf
$249 would be made up before thc
branch conference was over. She
came forward ut this time nnd said
that God had answered her prayqrs
and the money came to hand. "Oh,"
she said, "God never fails us if we
only rely on him und put our fuith
In him and he will make everything
tome out right." She gave her ret
port with such a smiling face und
*aid they had gone over the top.
Oh, she said, "I knew we would."
The secretaries of the Methodist
and Presbyterian branches gave a
survey of the mission fields since
their own W.M.S. wos organized and
said this is our donation to thc United Church.
Miss Pentland gave a little talk.
Her message wus wonderful, telling
us to walk hand in hand with Jesus
to turn our faces to tha crucfied one
and the hard days of,union would be
made easy, wo all have to make sacrifices, but the machinery will run
smoothly if we keep Him alwuys before us. Will it cost anything? Yes.
There must be. a smoking altar, this
is what I count for every woman in
this new organization.
Mrs. J. S, Gordon reported for the
untried   board   and    told    of   the
work accomplished by that board.
Presentation   Made
During the closing session, Friday
afternoon, Mrs. Sipprell was presented with a handsome cake basket as a
mark of appreciation from hor coworkers, occompanyed with a well-
worded address. Mrs. Sipprell was
greatly surprised, and could not reply for a few minutes. Then those on
the platform circled around her and
sang "Blest Be the Tie That Binds
All Standing." Mrs. Sipprell replied
with a great deal of emotion; she
thanked all her co-workers for this

Windermere   District   Holds
Community Outing At

lnvermere, B.C., June Bth,—Tiie
King's birthday was loyally celebrated by the dwellers within the boundaries of the Lake Windermer-.' district who one and all, to the number
of several hundreds, old nnd young,
hied them In curs to the Fairmont Hot
Springs to be the guests of Manager
!(. W. Bartman 'ind enjoy his hospitality in one huge community picnic.
The procession of automobiles
from the centres of Athalmer. lnvermere, Wilmer aud Wiudermere started early iu the morning, the general
assembly being held at the noon hour.
The transportation had been core-,
fully thought out und arranged by I
n committee of whom Mr, W. li,
Tompkins, of this place, wus practically the head und forefront. Ther"
was not any bitch in the proceeding:!.
This, coupled with a hot, cloudless
day, left it one to be long remembered by those taking part. Even before lunch the large Bwimmlng pool
filled with the health restoring
radium   charged   water   hud   man v
young patrons as did also the lo.^s
pretentious pools in the volley of
the creek, The program of sports
for lhe day wns quite varied, und included those of an aquatic nature, as
well us races carried on on land.
Messrs. McGarry and McBey were in
charge of this end and it was certainly most creditable to them and a reward for their indefatigable labors
to say that every event was a crowning success.
A little pantomime was staged as
quite a surprise to all when the
Duchess of Windermere, in latest
style with rolled stockings, short
skirts und parasol appeared upon the
grounds accompanied by Charles, the
parts being impersonated by one of
our leading merchants, Mr. A. Ernest
Kisher, with that prince of comics,
Lewis Bell, as companion. Excitement was at its pitch when both fell
into the swimming pool, clothes and
all, aud further merriment was added when, instead of coming to the
shore, they ingeniously disrobed and
appeared in free from ull disguise
and guile in their bathing suits as
though nothing hnd happened.
The Indies' committee, who had
charge of supplying the refreshments,
were more Minn equal lo the occasion,
ouch person being bountifully provided with food for the day, the
grand toast of the day taking place
at five o'clock In the afternoon so as

From the time of the foundation
of this college forty yeurs ago, the
examinations hn\'e been marked by
consistent and increasing progress.
No other association or society in
the world can show a record of like
character, the outstanding reason being lluit a clearly defined system of
tests, comprehensive in ull details,
was destined to meet with universal
approbation, All the facilities of
the college examination system have
been realized to the full, as is evidenced by the rapidity with which
the system has spread into every land
where the English language is spoken, as also into other countries, So
phenomenal has been the development that the college is in the position of being the largest musical examining body in the world. The
Loudon College of Music is in fuct
the pioneer of the modern musical
examination ns it exists today. The
committee id' management have ut
all limes exercised great cure lo appoint examiners who are not only
widely known as musicians of the
highest attainments and experience,
but also possessing the noccs-pnry
tact, discrimination and level judge*
ment so essential to the successful
discharge of their duties. In this
way the fairness and impartiality of
the examinations is guaranteed, and
the value of the certificates und diplomas assured. The annual examinations of the L. C. M. are shortly to
lie helil iu this city us unnounced in
this issm by Mrs. R. W. Edmondson.
Old Timers Going Up Against
Juniors On Wednesday
Evening Next
For the greatest thrill in sport for
muny a long month, the lacrosse
game being arranged for Wednesday
of next week will probably heat them
all. On that evening, ut 0.46, 0 team
of Old Timers will moet the Juniors.
The  object   of  the game,  of course,
is to give the old warhorses who were
in the game when it was al its best
fifteen or twenty yeurs ugo, an opportunity to show thc young upstarts
of today who ari trying to handle a
lacrosse stick, just how the game
should be played. These old timers
may not have quite the wind they had
years ago, nnd mny be a little slower
on their feet, but for real hoad work
and nifty stick handling—just watch
them. An admission charge of 25c
will be charged, anil the proceeds will
go towards the purchase of necessary
equipment for the junior teams, lt
is nol only hoped that tht re will be
a generous response among the sport
supporters of thc city, but thc lacrosse boys feel they have a right to
expect a good measure of support
for u game of this nature.
Tin old timers' team will be selected from the following warhorses.
Just look them over and make a
guess us to what the chances of tin
youngsters arc:

by n chance that the six children

was burned and the four lives lost,
going unbidden with their mother,
giving some childish reason that they
being taken along for no othei reason.
The four little ones wen found
huddled on a bed in one room, where
the fire had apparently trapped them,
the ten-year-old girl having her arms
round the younger children. Tli.

Citizens generally are pleased to
note the more rapid progress now being made with the pavement on Buk
er Street. For several reasons since
the start of the work the progress has
been delayed. In the first place, after
the road was scarified and the gravel
placed thereon, the Tarvia melting
pot which was expected from the
East was delayed in shipment, und
practically nothing could be done
but wait; then when the machine did
arrive, difficulty was experienced with
its operation. After some time the
city requested the company supply
ing the Tarvia to send in a man who
was acquainted with its application.
On Monday last Mr. Hary Murfitt,
of Vancouvor, came, and discovered
thut certain parts that should have
come with the machine had not arrived, and when these parts were
mode for it everything went well.
In justice to the city officials iu
charge It Bhould be stated that had
the machine arrived properly equipped, no delay would have occurred.
It Is now expected that by the end
of the, week that the entrances to
Baker Street from Van Horne and
Hanson Avenue will be open for traffic, thus cutting out the long detour
around the post offlce. The last coating of sand was applied on Wednesday.

Passers by on Baker Street last
week were attracted by sweet strains
of music coming from the open doorway of the Cranbrook Drug & Book
Co. Upon investigation, it was found
that inside was one of the latest
things in thc type of music machine,
it being the "New Ampliphonic." Mr.
Walter Daniels, of Vancouver, who
covers this district for the distributors, wus demonstrating it, and those
who had the privilege of hearing,
were greatly taken with the wonderful results in reproduction. The machine is one that embodies all the
amplifying and tone improving features known to the gromaphone business today. Mr, Dunitis had along
with him an interesting Edison record, which took 22 minutes to play
each side, there being on each side
five different selections. The Drug
Co. expect to have their first ship-
lent of the New Ampliphonics in

longer periods which have been taken

For wind and dust, Tuesday of
this week will probably go down in
history as the record day. Coming
from a southerly direction, the wind
simply carried volumes of dust and
dirt down on the avenues, most of
which, in the opinion of the merchants, was left in their various
stores. So for as is known, the only
damage done by the miniature cyclone was that to the Imperial Hotel.
Here it raised a tin sheet overhanging the top of the building, und tore
up the roof as though it were paper.
The lining underneath this tin roofing being torn and loosened, blew in
all directions over the neighborhood.
Carpenters and workmen were immediately engaged ind the damage
temporarily repaired.

Notwithstanding the conceded excellence of the programs in general,
it is practically certain that the Dominion Chautauqua will not come to
Cranbrook next year.
It wus though! that perhaps the
reduction of the period from six dnys
to four would be on argument for
getting better support for the undertaking, nud undoubtedly it appealed
to the general public more than the
longer period. Hut il would seem
that the luck of support given Chaw-
tainpia is based more on other considerations, which the high standard
or otherwise of lhe programs does
not affect. Dr. Rivers, of Lethbridge,
who was here during the period of
thc Chnutauipia, was nol able to commend a Ruffictonl degree of-support
to make it worth while to attempt
to circulate a contract for the ap-
penrnnoe uf Chautauqua here for
another yeur, and did not make the
attempt to get the required fifty
names, though undoubtedly some
could have been hud.
Though fair attendances greeted
the performances lure, especially on
the last evening, the seuson ticket
sale diil not go over very strongly,
and resulted in an approximate deficit of five or six dollars for each
of the fifty or sixty guarantors.
As one of the contestants in the
Cranbrook Herald Circulation Campaign, I wish to take this opportunity
of thanking all those who through
their support and influence made it
possible for me to secure such a
large number of votes. Without this
loyal -support from both the citizens
of Cranbrook, Kimberley, Chapman
and other points, it would have been
impossible for me to gain the position which 1 did.
For the misunderstanding which
arose with regard to the rules of the
campaign, had it not been for which
I would have won by over one million
credits, I hold The Cranbrook lleruld
in no way responsible and I appreciate the consideration received in
connection therewith.

Maple sugar sap Is flowing now
through the many forests of
tht ancient province of Quebec.
fSvtry train coming Into Windsor
(Station, Montreal, from the Eastern
Townships brings increasing supplies of maple syrup. In assorted
containers, in cans, kegs, creupi bottles, jars, crates, gallon tins, in every
conceivable shape or form, the delicious liquid comes pouring through
the gateway of the Canadian metropolis. Similar shipments pour into
the Place Viger Station from the
famous Laurentian mountains during the months of March and April
every year. This spring the cold
winds slowed up the supply early in
April, but by the end of tht month
larger amounts were received, the
peak being reached usually about
the last week of April.
Sugaring parties make the mountain wildernesses ring with their
shouts every week-end during the
second month of spring. Men and
women, boys and girli, wrapped in
mufflers and arrayed tn sundry
woollens, stand around the trees and
drink maple syrup from huge cans,

floats out the unanimous verdict,
Expressions of delight flood the
faces of the participants of the
auguring bees us they dip wooden
ladles into the flowing syrup, raising them hastily to their lips so as
not to lose even a drop.
According to Dominion Express
officials at Montreal the quality ot
the syrup leaves little to be desired
while the quantities being received
are well up to the average of former
years. Most of these shipments go
to produce dealers In Montreal, but
quite a quantity Is sent direct to
retailers and a fair amount is shipped to connoisseurs who look forward every spring to this dainty
sweetmeat from the Quebec maple
groves. Out West, too, where maple
trees are not found, former Inhabitants of the province of Quebec get
the maple sugar feeling every year
and a considerable number of small
shipments go forward to satisfy it.
