VOL. IX., No. f-3
By Rev. Fred Comley, Ileclor of Holy
Trinity Church, Cumberland, B.C.
"Oh that I knew where I might find
hlni, thut I might come even to his
sent."—Job 23:3.
Thin in tho quest of many In the
present day, as well an ln the past.
Tho same writer in chapter XL, verse
7, nsks: "Canst thou by searching
lmd out Ood? Canst thou find out the
Almighty unto perfection?" Tlie wrl-.
tor's Answer is not altogether satls-
faotory to the present day seeker: "It
is high as heaven, what canst thou
do? Deeper than hell, what canst
thou know? The measure thereof is
longer than the earth, and broader
than tlie sea." Yet as we read on we
lind a calm confidence expressed by
the writer tht the misery and hardship of the world shall pass away
like water, that to those who are
willing to dig deeply, assurance
comes; also It ls possible to rest in
safety, to lie down In the last sleep
und not be afraid. What Is going to
govern our quest In these days of
unxiety? Where are we going to dig
In order that we may have that calm
security; muy He down even in our
lust sleep and none be able to make
us al'raiti?
1. It linl Is going to govern our
ijiii'si I The teaching of Jesus demands
thut we become as little children, and
many a mun answers that demand ln
similar language to that used by
Nicodemus, in the thhird chapter of
St. John. "How can these things be?"
jo be horn again—to make a fresh
start in life with a new Ideal; to be
willing to become a little child in our
search does not appeal to our much
vuunted Intellects. If Jesus had only
suid: "You must become a Buper-
mun," how much more Interesting,
und how eagerly we would havo obeyed. But we pride ourselves that we
havo left the child period far behind,
and wu have no desire to retrace our
uteps. lint nevertheless do we often
lieur u whisper phrased in language
similar to that addressed to the great
Syrian soldier by his servants, In the
nilh chapter of the 2nd Book of Kings?
"My father, If the prophet had bidden
tliec do some great thing, wouldst
thou not hnve done it?" The story
of Naauian is the story of many a
mun today. Big things are so attractive aud the Jordan of childllkeness
unimportant.
Does this mean - that Christianity
does not demand enough from Its adherents? If we nre willing to test It
we shall find out the truth for ourselves—tlnd out that which seems on
tlie surface Insignificant—"DemandB
my soul, my life, my all." How does
a child begin to learn the most Important lessons in life? Very often
it learns its first lessons through fear,
lt obeys because of the fear of punishment, but gradually It learns to
obey through love. When the parent
says: "Thou shalt not," the child does
not know why such a law is necessary and only obeys that law because
of fear, but the child soon realizes
tlie meaning of the command and theu
tlie wishes of tho parent are carried
out from a higher principle; fear has
developed Into love. As we read our
Bibles we find iu the Old Testament
revelation of God, "Thou shalt uot,"
and we see Indvlduals and nations
obeying through fear. In the New
Testament wc have a fuller revelation,
not fear now, but the two great commandments, according to Christ, are
personal devotion to God and to our
neighbor. So we see that what the
earthly parent expects from the child
our Heavenly Father expects from us.
We muy begin ln feur like the child,
hut If our religion ls one of feor only
il will never stand the withering
blasts of temptutlon. How mauy
souls have beeu wrecked here. Their
religion begun ln fear; there was no
developement, hence it ended in fear.
.Many a man, If he were honest, would
own that tho religion he thought he
had In his youth stopped there. Many
men say that we had so much religion in our youth we never want auy
more. Their religion was oue of fear
- only—of personal devotion to a Savior they kuow nothing. The religion
tliey had might have developed. It
hud iu lt the possibilities of growth,
but because its only root was fear lt
withered away. If they had allowed
It to grow into personal devotion, how
illh'erent their life story would have
heen. They see growth ls necessary
for natural things, but they do not
believe that natural laws and spiritual laws ure closely related. They
observe without the aid of glasses
this dcvclopetncut and growth taking
place iu their own children. They
read in the Book of Books "a little
child shall lead them"; also "Except
yo he converted, and become as little
children, ye shall pot enter Into the
Kingdom of Heaven." But these
messages bring no comfort. Why?
Because they have never developed
their spiritual hearing or their spiritual seeing. How we need to pray in
these days for eyes to perceive and
ears to hear when God ls manifesting
'Himself in so many waysl In these
days when so many are being called
upon to pass through the furnace of
affliction, if we watch the children,
maybe through them we shall hear
the Master speaking to us saying:
"Why not be willing to be a child in
spiritual things?" Your child has no
fear when his hand holds yours. Our
Heavenly Father asks for the ssanie
confidence. He stands with outstretched nrms today saying: "Come unto
Me, ull ye that labour and are heavy
laden und 1 will give yon rest."

T
War Efficiency and
National Prosperity
More than a billion and a'half dollars distributed
in Canada for exported agricultural produce and
the products of labor in the fiscal year ending
March 31, 1918, has kept Canada busy and
prosperous in spite of the war.
CANADA'S production in such enormous
■ quantities was made possible only by the
money received through Canada's War
Loans. Canada thus was enabled ta assist the
Allies in their purchases here by establishing
financial credits for their use in this country.
CANADA'S war loans not only
have sustdned Canada's war
effort, but they have kept the wheels
of production turning as they never
turned before.
This is the flood of cash which
poured in .to Canada's farms for their
exports in the fiscal year 1918, for:—
Butter $   2,000,000
Cheese  36,602,000
Eggs  2,271,000
Oats  '37,644,000
Wheat  366,341,000
Flour  95,896,000
Meats  76,729,000
Vegetables  19,034,000
Over six hundred and thirty-six
million dollars for  exported farm
products alone! ,
•        •        *
AND the workers of Canada also
shared greatly in Canada's export trade.
For their products there was distributed in Canada, during the year:
Munitions 3450,000,000
Metals    92,083,000
Vehicles    22,776,000
Wood Pulp and Paper..   59,599,000
These huge sums were1 spent in
Canada by the Allies.
Canada's own war expenditure for
the fiscal year 1918 was $342,762,000.
And the bulk of all these expenditures, the foundation of i Canada's
prosperity and war effectiveness, was
made possible only because the subscribers to Canada's war .loans furnished the working capital.
/CANADA must keep this great
^ work going—must produce as
never before; must work, fight, save
and lend as she has never yet done to
bring victory and a lasting peace to
a war-ridden world.
But Canada to-day (thanks to her
great export trade), is in a better position now than ever, to carry on.
The Victory Loan 1918 will keep
Canada busy, will enable her to main,
tain her great export business; and it
will make Canada more efficient than
ever, because her prosperity will not
be diminished and her determination
to work, fight and win will be
stronger than it has ever been before.

ways today. Materialists like II. G.
Wells and Horatio Huttomley havo
told us in recent literature how they
have found God. Listen to Wells:
"Religion Is the first thing and the
last thing, and until a man has found
God and God has found him, he begins
at no beginnings and arrives at no
end. Contrast this statement with
some of his earlier books. Mr. Bot-
tomley says the work of Sir Oliver
Lodge and of Sir William Crooks, two
of England's leading scientists, have
convinced him that Heath is only the
gateway to the life beyond. St. Paul
said so nearly two thousand years
ago, but the evidence of science was
necessary for Mr. Bottomloy. He
might have said that the teaching of
the Church he had discredited In the
past was, after all, true,—hut that
might bare helped the Church.
Lastly, we must dig for ourselves.
The spade has revealed God to many
a man, and If we dig Into literature,
especially Into the Book of Books, and
also Into nature and science, not from
fear of a book of records and judgments, but because one day we have
lo meet Jesus face to face. Have you
ever thought that your hell may be
meeting Jesus? Not fire and brimstone, but Just meeting Him who
asked you to become a little child and
"loam of Me." »
A modern poet has summed lt up
as follows in the words of a London
Tommy, as he eets across the line
that face he could never banish from
his sight, not even on the fields of
Fiance:
And then at last 'E said one word,
'E said just one word, Well?
And 1 said in a funny voice,*
Please can I go to 'Ell?
And then 'E answered, No,
You can't; that 'Ell Is for the blind.
And not for those that see.
I's got to follow what I's seon
Till this old carcase dies.
For I dareu't face ln thc land of grace
The sorrow of thoso eyes.
There ain't no throne, and tbere ain't
no books,
It's 'Im you've got to see,
It's 'Im, just 'Im, that ls the Judge
Of blokes like you and me.
And, boys, I'd sooner frizzle up
In the flames of a burning 'Ell
Than sliiinl and look Into 'Is face,
Anil 'ear 'Is voice say—"WELL?"

THK SMILE OF VICTORY
At a luncheon In Vancouver the
otlier dny, nearly a thousand British
Columbia business men picked up
from the orchestra the lilt of a chorus
from the trenches. Over and over
they sang it in increasing volume, the
spirit of the song reflecting their own.
The .Minister of Finance, speaking
a few minutes later on behalf of the
Victory Loan, adopted the refrain as
the text for his appeal.
Ami on the eve of the Great Victory
Loan drive for half a billion dollars
the committee adopted the same song
as the key-chorus for the campaign:
"Pack up your troubles  iu your old
kit bag,
And smtle, smile, smile."
(By Harold Bell Wright.)
The hope of thc world is not alone
that the armies of humanity will be
victorious, but thRt the spirit aud
purpo&e of our warfare will prevail
in our victory. Tlie hope of the world
is in the Red Cross, because the Red
Cross.is voicing this spirit and purpose that must, through the force of
our arms, triumph. Just to the degree thnt we can evidence this Red
Cross spirit of mercy and brotherhood
we will hold true in the dangerous
hour of victory to the ideals that have
forced us into the trenches in the defense of human rights and human
liberty.
The one sane aud saving thought
in this delirium of death that now
possesses the world Is the Red Cross.
Wherever the storms of battle hell
rnge, amid the fires of ruthless destruction, in trench and camp and hospital, these soldiers of mercy with
heroism unsurpassed are carrying the
nag of the highest conceivable ideals
of humanity. The ideals for which
our armies have taken the field are,
by these unarmed hosts, proclaimed
to friend and foe, ln that unmistakable language of universal mercy and
brotherhood. In the terms of wasted
towns rebuilt, of broken humanity
salvaged, of dying children rescued,
of desolate families succored, the Red
Cross declares the cause for which we
war and proclaims the principals and
ideals that must and will prevail in
the end. Above the thunder of the
guus, the roar of exploding mines, the
crash of fallen cities and the cries of
tortured humanity, the voice of the
Red Cross carries clear and strong
the one message of hope to our war-
burdened world.
Out of this hell of slaughter the
Red Cross will guide the warring
nations to a heaven of world-wide
peace and brotherhood .

CARRIER  PIGEONS ATTHKFltOVI'
A chaplain with the B.E.F. in France
writes, according to the Times:
I think it was on  thnt I paid u
visit to one of the pigeon lofts in our
area. The pigeons are part of my flock.
They live—some sixty of thom—in a
London motor omnibus from Piccadilly. The outside top part of the
omnibus is rooted in to form a cage,
while Uie men occupy the inside—or
rather, three-quarters of the inside,
because the front part of the cage,
which is entered by a door from the
men's room, aud also by a door at the
top of the back staircase.
There is un opening in the front of
the cage, cleverly arranged, so thnt
the birds can enter when they return
when they return from their flights,
but cannot fly out when they are in-
saide. A hoard is deftly poised just
inside the opening, bo that when a
bird steps on it an electric bell ring;
inside tlie omnibus to tell tbe men that
a pigeon has come home. Two .arrived while I was there; they bad
come from the trenches five miles
away in twelve minutes. The pigeons
nre taken out in baskets to the
trenches, to bring messages buck iu
case the wire communications should
be cut by the enemy's fire. If not
wanted for this purpose, they are sent
Hying buck nfter twenty-four hours
with some message just for practice.
Km h pigeon has n ring put on its leg
wben quite young, and is known by
the number on the ring.
As soon ns the bird arrives ut tbe
loi'i, n mun creeps into the cage,
catches it, reads the message, writes
it down in duplicate, und scuds an
orderly at once wilh u copy to tlie
signal ollicer, whence it Is sent forth
like nu ordinary telegram to where-
over J1 ought to go. Birds ure always
sent in couples, each with the same
message, in ense one should be shot
by the enemy. Two males— or two
females- are sent together, never a
male and a female, lest tbey loiter hy
tho wny, or Eve tempt Adam to wander from the path of duty!
Truly, they were a beautiful set
of birds which I saw—quite a sight
to behold, lu such perfect condition,
and with nil thc murks of high breeding. Their dignified bearing seemed
to show that they realized the importance to their work! It is u wonderful instinct which makes these birds
Ily back to their homes as soon ns
possible. Thc men get devoted to
Ihem, nnd make tbem love their cleau
and comfortable homes, where they
urn well fed and cured for in every

STORAGE OF POTATOES
Many have grown potatoes this
year who never did so before, and
consequently will be unfamiliar with
the best methods of protecting the
crop. Owing to the excessive rains
this autumn, potatoes in some districts have become Infected with rot,
and many have been harvested under
unfavorable conditions. In many Instances they have been stored In cellars before being properly dried. Potatoes showing any indication of rot
should not be stored with sound ones.
This is especially true If there are
abisormal conditions of moisture, as
such conditions will cause a greater
activity of the fungus and, consequently, quicker rotting of the potatoes. Potatoes should be stored tn as
dry and cool a place as possible without freezing. The drier the ycau be
kept the less rot they will develop.
This year, especially, potatoes
should be carefully sorted within from
three to four weeks after storing in
thc cellar, and those showing any
signs of developing rot being discarded. This will protect the remainder of the crop. Food is badly needed
and it ls our positive duty to take
good care of what we have produced.
TUESDAY, October 29th, 1918.
LONDON, Oct. 29.—Ailed troops are
engaged in a great offensive movement on tbe Italian front and have
already takeu more than 15,000 prisoners, while the Allies have thrown
forces acros the Piave on a front of
about 30 miles. The heaviest fighting has heen along a stretch of 7
miles, between Cougeliano and Oderzo
whore the Italians and British have
advanced more than 3 miles, making
a formidable wedge in the Austrian
positions east of the rllver and between two of the main communication
lines.
The Allies are within two miles of
both Congellano and Oderzo. Troops
and supplies are being rushed to the
Plave front, and It is evidently purposed to force the offensive to the utmost. The fighting east of the Plave
has been very heavy, the Austrians
struggling bitterly to prevent tho
Allies from enlarging their gains on
the east bank.
On the Western front In France
heavy fighting virtually Is at a standstill northward from Le Cateau to the
Dutch frontier, but from the Oise to
east of the Meuse the Allied pressure
continues, with gains for the French
between the Oise and the Serre. An
intense artillery duel Is in progress
on the American front northwest of
Verdun, but no Infantry fighting has
been reported.
East of the Oise on the French front
the army of General Debeney Is rapidly encircling Guise. On the south
they are ln the suburbs of the town
and have captured German drat line
trenches, besides enemy barracks and
a hospital.
Farther south tlie French are
marching northeastward between
Guise and Maille, and threaten to outflank both points by smashing all the
way through the Hundlng positions.
Since the beginning of his advance
between the Oise and the Serre, Gen.
Debeney has moved forward more
than five miles on a front of about
sixteen miles.
German guns began to bombard the
American lines ln the Verdun region
early on Tuesday. The American artillery responded. Apparently the
Germans hoped to check any further
American efforts to continue the advance by deluging the American lines
with high explosives at the hour when
attacks usually are launched.
Field Marshal Haig reports only
artillery and patrol activities on the
front of his armies. In Belgium the
operations are only of a local character.

COPENHAGEN, Oct. 29.—Hungary
has definitely revolted and formed an
Independent anti-dynastic state under
the leadership of Count Karolyl. in
cooperation with the Czechs and Jugo
Slavs, according to a Vienna dispatch
to the Politlken. Karolyl, who was
elected head of the national council,
was given an ovation upon his arrival
in Budapest. He told the crowds,
which numbered thousands, that Emperor Karl has requested his program
for a greater degree of separation between Austria and Hungary, whereof
an independent state was necessary.

Class who have been ordered to report by the Registrar in
virtue of the cancellation of exemptions by Order-in-Council of
the 20th April last, as well as to those ordered to report in the
usual way on refusal of claim for exemption, or on expiration
of exemption granted.
