PRAY AND FAST ON
DECORATION DAY
Washington, May 12.—Decoration Day, May 30, was last
night proclaimed by President
Wilson a day of "public humiliation, prayer and fasting."
The proclamation says:
"I do proclaim Thursday, the
30th., day of May, a day already
freighted with sacred and stimulating memories, a day of public
humiliation, prayer and fasting
and do exhort my fellow citizens
of all faiths and creeds to assemble on that day in their several
places of worship and there, as
well as well as in their homes,
to pray Almighty God that He
may forgive our sins and shortcomings as a people and purify
our hearts to see and love the
truth, to accept and defend all
things that are just and right and
to purpose only those righteous
acts and judgments -which are in
conformity with His will beseeching Him that He will give victory
to our armies as they fight for
freedom, wisdom lo those who
•take counsel on our behalf in
these days of dark struggle and
perplexity, and steadfastness to
our people to make sacrifices to
the utmost in support of what is
just and true, bringing us at last
the peace in which mens' hearts
can be at rest because it is founded upon mercy, justice and goodwill."

HAGGART-ALDER.
A pretty wedding was solemnized on Wednesday, May 15,
at 10 a. m., in the Presbyterian
Church, Union Bay, when Mr.
David Haggart. only son of Mr,
and Mts. David Ritchie Haggart,
was united in marriage to Miss
Grace Alder, third daughter of
Rev. and Mrs. J. C. Alder. The
bride was dressed in a navy blue
travelling suit with large Panama hat and carried a boquet of
white lilac. The bridesmaid, Miss
Rachel Haggart, sister of the
bridegroom, was also dressed in
blue with a large white felt hat
and carried a boquet of pink and
white tulips. Mr. Robert Palmer acted as groomsman. The
Rev, J. C. Alder performed the
ceremony. There was a large
attendance of ladies in the church.
After the weddinc breakfast the
happy couple left for Vancouver.
A very pretty effect was made
by the school children who were
lined up on the-station platform
with boughs of dogwood forming
an archway under which the bridal party walked on their way to
the train.
D. Gallaford arrived here on
Wednesday on a visit to his brother Charles, and is the guest of
Mrs. A. Haywood.
TAKEN IN THEIR OWN TRAP-HUNS GASSED.
You've heard of the old adage that he who sets a trap for
some one else usually falls into it himself. Here is a living
proof of it. These German soldiers have lost the use of
their eyes by having their own devil's plaything, gas, which
they had directed against the French, turn on them by a
sudden shifting of the winds.

INVENTING LIFE.
One who had watched the ed
ucation of youth foi many years
with kindly wisdom used to say
that the most pathetic thing ab-
o it it was that the young were
so incapable o'f profiting by the
experience of age. You try to
teach your children the sad lessons that you have plucked from
life, to make them distinguish
between sweet and bitter, to
choose this path and avoid that;
but they will neither obey nor
listen. They stumble over rough
roads that you would have made
smooth, and fall into traps that
you would have had  them shun.
But if this makes the pathos
of youth it also makes its charm,
this petulant indifference to the
gray caution of mistrustful age.
The boy and the girl go bounding forward over hill and valley,
eager to make life for themselves, to create a new world.
What if you have failed? Is that
any reason why they should not
succeed? Even sorrow, even
suffering, even death are rich
with splendid, untried possibilities. But these children do not
think of sorrow, or suffering, or
death. It is enough for them
that tomorrow is unlimited. For
them are all the vast desire and
hope of Stevenson's delicate verses.
The world is"so full of a number
of things,
I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings.
And their vivid impatience finds
its natural outlet in the panting
enthusiasm of Rosalh d, "One
inch of delay more is a South Sea
of discovery,"
in the gay French comedy the
old lady says of the young girl,
"Here is another one who thinks
she has  invented love."    So  we
may say of youth, "Here are
others and others and others by
the million who think they have
invented life."
And the tragedy of advancing
years is that we invent life no
longer. As we grow old everything grows old about "s. Well-
trodden paths lead to old, familiar haunts, with nothing of discovery, nothing of mystery.
But there are a fortunate few
whose eyes are bright with discovery until they die. Let us all
be as much like them as we can.
Let us resolutely go on inventing
life. The surest way to do that
is to live with the spirit of the
young, to see life with their eyes
and, in these days when we are
so madly on the watch against
evil germs, to keep our souls
daily infected with the germ, of
wonder.
Four hundred years before
Christ, Xenophon led the ten
thousand refugees of the army of
the younger Cyrus through the
five months' wanderings that
ended in that unforgettable cry
"The sea! The sea!" There
was no Xenophon to lead the
thirty thousand Serbian boys
who, in the late fall of 1915,
started to cross the Albanian
mountains to escape the German
and Austrian armies. The mountains were deep in snow, the
tracks rough and dangerous and
beset with hostile Albanians.
Nearly all the refugees were
boys from ten to sixteen years of
age. The one aim was to save
them from falling into the hands
of the enemy. The mountains
must be crossed, the sea must be
reached, tents were scarce and
food was scarcer. Clothing became reduced to rags, yet still
the boys struggled on. Of the
thirty thousand who started, only fifteen thousand reached the
sea. Here, then, in our own
times and almost under our eyes,
is an Anabasis more tragic and
more strange than that of Xen-
ephone.— Youth's Companion.
The surest indications of a
farmer's prosperity are a well-
dressed wife and a well painted
barn.
Not only is there "no place
like home in housecleaning time,
there is no place that looks like
home.
The boys who work on farms
this summer will learn one thing
that the old table of square measure omitted: the number of
aches in an acre.

throughout Canada. These are always within easy reach of
Ford owners—for gasoline, oil, tires, repairs, accessories,
expert advice or motor adjustments.
The cost of Ford Service in as remarkably low as the cost
of the car itself. Nineteen of the most called for parte cost
only $5.40, Just compare this with the cost of spare parts
for other cars and you will realize the advantage of owning
a Ford,

Getting the Most Out of
Time
Time is always at a premium. This applies
particularly to business men who are constantly
trying to crowd more than one day's work into
eight hours. Nothing helps more to rush business
along than the telephone— it is the great: time-
saver.
Prompt telephone service depends not on the
operator alone. She does her best and with considerate co-operation the maximum service effectiveness can be realized.

The above figures are given in the Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers and are the results of

With beef at 30c. a pound you will pay $1.72 for a

Thus if you cook the meat in an electric oven you
will save for yourself 37 cents, and for your country lit)
3oz. of beef. Think of it! 20'/» of our meat supply
wasted in coal stoves. This means that you will get
equal to a
Discount of 207c on your meat bill
if yon cook by electricity, and you will be saving beef
money and coal for the boys at the front. ■

FACT AND COMMENT.
It is just twelve years since
we had a mail," wrote a woman
in Tristan da Cunha in November, 1916, to an English lady,
who received the letter last December, more than a year after
it was written. You must have
a pretty complete atlas to show
you where Tristan da Cunha is,
for it is in the middle of the
South Atlantic more than a
thousand miles from any other
inhabited land. The odd thing
about the letter that comes from
there is that it does not mention
the war or anything that is going on upon the Island or anywhere else. The writer wishes
her English friend to send het
some cups and saucers, as there
are less than a dozen on the Island. So remote is it that the
London Times Gazetteer printed
in 1899 mentions that a British
man-of-war touched at the Island
in 1890.
A moment after the sewing-
machine agent rung the bell,says
Tit-Bits, a particularly noisy and
vicious-looking bulldog assisted
in opening the door. The dog
stood his ground. The agent retreated slightly. "Will that dog
bite?" he asked. "We don't
quite know yet," the lady said,
"We have only just got him. But
we are ti ying him with strangers.
Won't you come in?"

Most Heat
from Fuel
One reason why the
Kootenay Range gives
the most use of the heat
generated from the fuel,
is thai the grates have
ample vents to make
perfect combustion in

properly and scientifically proportioned according to the needs of

Cheer Up and Thanh God for the Y.M.C.A.
MtY to picture yourself iu the muddy cold trenches after
exciting days and long nights of mortal danger and intense nervous strain. Rushing "whiz-bangs" and screaming "coal boxes" are no respecters of persons. You are hit!
But despite shock and pain you still can face the long weary,
trudge back to dressing station. Wean-, overwrought and depressed, you are prey to wild imaginii gs of that oilier coming
ordeal wilh the surgeon. There are other "walking wounded,"
tool   You must wait, wait, wait.    And then—
Up comes achecry Y.M.C.A. man, the ever-present "big brother"
to the soldier, with word; of manly encouragement. Close beside the dressii g station the good generous folks at home have
enabled him to sot tip a cauteen. lie hand.-; you biscuits, and

Canada-Wide Appeal
"In thousands of case;," writes an < (Beer, "it was thai first hot
cup of coffee that dragged the man back to life and sanity."
The tremendous helpfulni ss of the Y M.C.A, as an aid to Ihe
"morale," or fighting spirit, of the soldiers is everywhere
prai ed. No wonder the Oermans make every effort to smash
the Y.M.C.A. huts out of existence.
The Y.M.C.A. is everywhere. Yon fir t met the helpful,
manly Y.M.C.A. worker in camp, then on lrain and boat, at
camp in England and in France, cl is.e to the firing line, Often
he risks his life to reach y< u in the trenches. He has won the
warmest praise from military authorities, statesmen—the King!
Have you a precious boy at the front? You cannot be "over
there" to guide him away from fierce temptations of camp and
city. You cannot comfort him in bis supreme hour of trial.
Your parcels to him are necessarily few. But the Y.M.C.A.,
thank Cod, is "over there," going where you cannot go—doing
the very things you long to do—doing il for you and for him.
Will you help? This vast organization of helpfulness needs al
least $2,250,000 from Canada for 1918. For your boy's sake be

With the transparent sheet, there conies a set of 40 cards each
of a different color. First you try a white card on the walls, in
combination with a green card for the roof. Then you try a
brown card behind the wall section of the transparency, along
with a red card for the roof. And so on, until you have exhausted the possibilities of every known color combination.
