"The Road to Health Is Paved
with Good Prevention"
Almost everybody thinks that the
other man has the easier and bettor
job. There is a general tendency to
ascribe success to luck. In the same
way many communities excuse their
failure to secure health tor their constituents because of some local difficulties and, at the same time attribute the success of other communities to "just luck."
It is true that every place has its
own problems and difficulties. It 1b
equally true that the healthy community has succeeded, not because of
luck, but because its members did
what was necessary to overcome their
Throughout Canada you will find a
great variation as to health conditions

j of course, a reason for this. This
' reason Is not hard to And; it is a simple one. Where the best health work

DURING the mediaeval period two neighboring towns in
the Old Country had long engaged in a rivalry as to
which brewed the best beer. During a dispute one day in
early spring, between two brew-masters, one from each of
the towns in question, it was claimed by one that the Beer
brewed by the other lacked strength. To settle the dispute,
the following test was proposed: Each brew-master was to
consume a gigantic tankard of the beer brewed by his
opponent, after which he was to stand on one leg and thread
a needle. The loser claimed that a goat that had butted in
through the circle of men surrounding the opponents was
responsible for his downfall. The winner laughingly replied: "It was the Bock
(German word for goat) in the beer." From that time it became customary to brew a
special dark beer called "BOCK BEER" and place ft on sale in the Spring of each year.
may be obtained on Saturday, April 7th, 1928, and thereafter until the limited supply
is gone, from the Government Liquor Stores, in bottles, or on draught in any licensed
place at the same price as regular beer. '
Bock Beer is the BREWERS' TREAT, an exceptional brew of high-grade Beer and
aged (lagcred) for an unusually long period. It is a very wholesome and nutritious
beverage, the highest achievement of the skilled Brew-master. Order early to make
sure of a supply. Bock Beer, brewed by the Vancouver Breweries
Limited, Westminster Brewery Limited, Rainier Brewing Company
of Canada Limited, Silver Spring Breweries Limited, and Victoria-
Phoenix Brewing Co. Limited is guaranteed to be absolutely pure
beer.    Order a case to your home for Easter.    Delivery Free.

Word was received in town Thursday that the H. M. S. Flora was ashore
on Denman Island. At first It was
thought that she had Just grounded
on the sandsplt, but later It was
learned the accident was more serious
than first thought
It appears the Flora had been coaling at Union Wharf, preparatory for
her departure for Esquimau, and left
the Wharf about 7:30 Thursday morning, a dense bank of fog arising Just
as she left obscuring the Island. The
Flora must have varied slightly ln her
course after entering the fog bank, as
it was about eight o'clock when she
struck the bar extending out from
Denman Island, known as "Village
The bow of the cruiser was driven
well up on the rocks, the accident
happening so suddenly It was Impossible to close the stern port holes
which were open at the time, thus allowing the water to rush into the
after part of the ship sinking It to a
considerable depth.
The Flora Is ashore about twenty
yards from where the S. S. William-
ette went aground two years ago.
Village Reef is one of the most dangerous reefs on the coast, there being
deep water right to it with a strong
current shorcwards, and as the Flora
went on tt about full tide it will be a
hard proposition to float her.
Messages were immedltely sent to
Victoria and Rear Admiral A. K. Blck-
ford, C.M.G., commander in chief of
the Pacific squadron, arrived on the
scene Thursday evening, the steamer
Joan making a special trip for that
The work of unloading supplies,
guns, coal, etc. from the Flora is
progressing rapidly, the Flagship Grafton having arrived Thursday evening
to render assistance.
H..M.S. Flora, In command of Captain Casper J. Baker, belongs to the
Pacific squadron and ts rated as a
second class cruiser, carrying ten,
guns and a complement of 318 men.
The Pacific squadron now consists
of H.M.S. Grafton, H.M.S. Amphion,
at present nt Panama, and the Flora,

In Memoriam
In Loving Memory of Mrs. Erna
Hickman, who died April 1st, 1926.
The evening stars shine o'er her grave,
The one we loved but could not save,
From earthly pain to heavenly rest,
Missed by those who loved her best.
In our hearts your memory lingers,
Sweet and tender, fond and true,
There is not a day, dear daughter
That we do not think of you.
Oft in our solitude we sit and think
of you and of how things might have'
been had you been spared to us.
Inserted by Mother, Daddy, Evelyn,;
Ralph, Howard and her son Roy.      j

pictures relating to the Crucifixion
and Resurrection. The priceless

great art galleries of Europe.
The Resurrection
and Its Meaning
The Gospel of the Christian resurrection is not sufficiently appreciated by most Christians, because
it is not clearly understood.
"1 know that He shall rise again
in the resurrection at ihe last day,"
said Martha, the sister ot Lazarus.
"I am the resurrection and the
life," answered Jesus: "Whosoever liveth and belleveth on Me
shall never die." Why? Because
such a one has "passed from death
unto life." He has died unto sin
and become alive unto Uod in
Christ Jesus.     (Rom.  6:11.)
That Is the true condition of
every believer in Christ as seen
from the divine standpoint; but
most ot them fail to see this sublime truth and therefore fail to receive into their lives the inspiration and the power which it would
bring to them.
"Risen wlih Christ"—Not yet,
perhaps, "a perfect man In Christ
Jesus," but, a new man—a man
with a new purpose, and therefore
with a new character: for every
man's purpose ln life is his true
And this new man lives in a new
world—new, because seen from a
new standpoint and interpreted by
the light of a new theory of life. It
Is no longer the Devil's world,
which is bound to go to the Devil
as a foregone conclusion, but God's
world which the Devil has turned
upside down, but which God is
turning right side up. It is no longer a dark world shrouded in impenetrable gloom by the black
clouds of unconquerable sin and of
hopeless suffering but a brightening world, filled with hope by the
rising of the Sun of Righteousness.
And the believer himself, by virtue of his faith in Christ—if lt be
a living faith—has ceased to be a
mere waif on the heaving waters
of life, driven hither and thither
by the ever-changing winds of inward impulse and of outward circumstances. He has become a divine being whose life Is "hid with
Christ in God, beyond the reach
of harm," and who has a divine
commission to go forth conquering
and to conquer in the name of
Christ and by the power of the
Spirit of Christ.
It Is the duty of every believer
to form a correct conception of the
altered conditions into which he
has been brought by the grace of
Christ. He is no longer himself
but a living personification of
Christ. He is no longer a natural
man, under bondage to sin, but a
spiritual man, begotten In Christ
Jesus unto good works; he is no
longer a child of the first Adam,
looking downwards, and depending
upon the earth for support and
happiness, but is a child of God,
looking upward and depending upon God alone tor support and happiness.
This radical change of conditions must be fully recognized and
kept in mind if we desire to live
up to our privileges in Christ.
"If ye then be risen with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ sfeteth on the right
hand of God. Set your affections
on things above, not on things on
the earth. For ye are dead, and
your life is hid with Christ In God.
When Christ, who is our life, shall
appear, then shall ye nlso appear
wMi Him in glory."
It Ik recorded that on 11 morning
In May, 1711", which broke calmly
after a stormy night, It was possible to see from the cliffs of Folk-
stone even the very color of the
cot uges on the French mainland.
In the spiritual world, also, there
Is Ihe record of such a day of ileur
tranquility, when the fierce night
of ihe Passion had passed, and the
day of the Resurrection dawned
white and serene. On that day, nnd
during the period until the Ascension, when the Great Adventurer
was welcomed home, the unseen
world wan felt and known to be
very near, homelike, and real,
though 11 is never far from any nf
us, because we live and move and
have our being in it. Easter day
Is the anniversary of this day nf
Divine Lucidity when men—plain,
ordinary men like ourselves—saw
through the shadows Into the life
of things.
