SAVE THE CROPS.
Thr Harvest is fast approaching and every effort must be
made to prevent any waste of
foodstuffs through lack of help
on the farms.
First things must come first-
food will be a most important
factor in winning the war.
The campaign for Increased
Food Production which has been
carried on so successfully through
out the Dominion necessitates an
increased supply of labor in the
harvesting of the crops. Already
the supply of farm labor is inadequate to meet this increased
demand and farmers everywhere
are looking to their fellow Canadians in the towns and cities to
supplement the supply. No matter what happens the crop must
be taken off, and who is to do it?
If the able-bodied men in our
towns and cities will look seriously at this vital question, many of
them will gladly respond to the
appeal made through the Registration Cards for assistance in
farm work.
Every town and city in British
Columbia can spare numbers of
men who are now engaged in occupations which are not essential
to our national safety and well
being at the present time. These
men may not be eligible to shoulder a gun at the front but they
can and should help to feed the
man behind the gun. Every employer and employee should read
carefully the following:
"A day of reckoning is coming;
a day when that irresistible force,
Public Opinion, will judge a man
by his work, and will judge employers by the work they are I e-
taining mon tc do.
"Men and women will look hard
at the clerks in stores, offices,
warehouses and factories. We
are down toelementalstoday.and
our people will not tolerate the
thought that while so many of
our sons ate perishing in the
bloody struggle in France, so
many men are doing work that
can easily and efficiently be done
by women without sacrifice to
their womanhood or health."
It is, perhaps,unnecessary here
to specify by name those occupations which could be dispensed
with in the face of such a crisis
as our country and our nation are
now facing, hut certainly there
are many non-essential occupations in war time, and all men
and women engaged in them
should seriously consider abandoning them for the present in
favor of farm work.
Farm experience is not absolutely necessary to make a man of
great assistance at the present
time on farms. The color of his
blood is ol great importance. If
it is red enough he will succeed.
Mr. Townsman, when you come
to answer the question in your
registration card, "Are you willing to do farm work?" will you
close your eyes for a moment and
think of what you have read and
heard during the past year of untold suffering and untellable misery, starvation and degradation
in Europe, and then will you open
ALL TOGETHER
FOR LAST DRIVE
Canada is about to gather her
available resources for the last
great drive that shall send the
Hun reeling from the conflict into which he plunged the civilized
world four years ago. She proposes to lay the foundation for
this ultimate effort by taking an
inventory of the man power of
the Nation, and has set aside
Saturday. 22nd., June, as the
day upon which all persons, male
and female, of sixteen years and
over, must register and make
declaration as to the useful kinds
of work in connection with which
their services might be utilized.
The information that registration will provide will constitute
a solid basis upon which the
Government can intelligently formulate and put into execution all
its war policies. After registration the Government will have a
clearer understanding of the capabilities of the country for production; they will know how
much of Canada's human energy
is being uselessly expended.
Knowing all these things they
will be in a position to bring her
full weight to bear upon the issue in the disposal of which every ounce of energy will count.
The registration of 5,000.000
men and women in one day is in
itself an enormous task, but Canadians can be relied upon to
meet it as they have met every
major task imposed by the War.

A CHEERFUL PHILOSOPHER
A retired business man, who
now lives in a soldiers' home, recently sent to a friend in the
drygoods trade a letter that is
refreshing because of its homely
philosophy in the wise acceptance
of fortune's reverses. Reproduced in the New York Journal
of Commerce, it runs as follows:
Since I saw you, I have entered
on my seventy-seventh year. My
experience has taught me the
folly of worrying over events
that I cannot control. I have
much reason for gratitude, fori
have been allowed to live lonu.
My lines are cast in pleasant places, and that is more than many
a millionaire can truly say. I
have little sympathy for persons
who mourn their former prosperity, making themselves miserable and their hearers uncomfortable.
My five months' captivity in a
rebel prison showed me how little, after all, a person needs to
be perfectly happy and contented. One good, square meal for
the prisoners would have converted the prison into a picnic
grove.

A PRIVILEGE
AND A DUTY
Saturday, 22nd„ June, is the
date that has been fixed by the
Government for the registration
of all persons, male and female,
of sixteen years and over, resident in Canada. It is a day upon
which every Canadian will be afforded an opportunity of re-dedicating himself to the greatest
cause which ever engaged the attention of mankind. It is a day
upon which ever engaged the attention of mankind. It is a day
upon which a free people, strengthened by sacrifice, will reiter
ate their unalterable determination to endure to the end.
And so Saturday, 22nd., June,
is to be a day of privilege as well
as a day of duty, a day that will
go down in history as one of the
milestones in Canada's participation in the war.
The Canadian people are a unit
in their determination to exert
their full strength in the colossal struggle now being waged
for the integrity of free institutions. But they will not be in a
position to exert their full
strength until they know its precise measure in terms of man
power. Registration day will
supply this information and so
enable the country to work up to
its maximum effort.

This is to urge you
that you get your Suits Cleaned, Repaired and Pressed for
ox\'\ month. Then form your
own conclusion. If it leads to
better spirits, better health,
continue it. If it does away
with dirt, improves your appearance, continue it. Remember a well-dressed man always
wants the best.
Also you must get your shoes
cleaned; and don't throw vour
tan shoes away because they
are old—have them dyed.

BOYS'   SUIT
SPECIALISTS
We ask you to put our claim to the test, as we feel sure we can
fit most of the boys in town with a suit they will justly be proud in.
Coppley Noyes & Randall, of Hamilton, one of the best Houses in
Canada for "Good Goods" has just delivered our second shipment of
the swellest range of " Boys'Nifty Suits " it has ever been our
pleasure to open, hence our confidence in our claim.
This shipment contains about one thousand dollars' worth of
Boys' Special Suits, and every suit has an individuality all to itself
for the "little man" who will wear it, and which will make him like
his Dad.
For Big Boys we have a choice of suits that will leave nothing
to be desired ; the clcths are excellent, the style up the minute, and
you will find the price moderate compared with the quality. The
Home of Boys' Clothes! Yes, that is what we are after, and which
we intend to be known in the future, and, if the goods mean'anything, we are there already.
We invite every boy in town to come in and see our " New
Line and get acquainted, as he is sure to come in the end—if he
wants smart up-to-date Clothes.
SPECIAL   LINES
Ladies' House Dresses
We have a smart showing of New Lines in House Dresses. We
think it is the best assortment we have been able to get for some
time and would ask your inspection.
White Shoes
We have a full line of White Shoes for ladies, girls, boys and
children, and have had constantly t6 reorder some sizes. When
in need of shoes for summer, we ask your inspection of THE
KAUFMAN BRAND, which we consider one of the best on the
market today. Should we be out of your size, we can get in four
days.
Trunks and Suitcases
Our stock of these is very complete, with such an assortment
that you will have no difficulty in making a good choice.
FRESH GROUND COFFEE.
Have you tried our fresh ground coffee yet ? We have installed
a new "Hobart" electric Coffee Grinder, the best made, and can
grind your coffee to suit your taste—coarse medium, fine or pul-
uerized. It will be a pleasant surprise to you to find the great
difference in flavor between fresh ground coffee and coffee that has
probably been ground from one to six months before. Prices are
the same as ever for the present, at 35c, 40c., 45c. and 50c. per lb.
