About $200 a month is required to keep the Department running and supplied with its material during the winter months.
It is hoped that this one expense, so necessary and in which
everybody has an interest and
benefit, will be kept up to its
high state of usefulness. Everybody doing their share and helping in the work will accomplish
a great deal and no one will feel
the burden.

in the interests of their business,

they on construction, not on production. Now it is time to extend
our efforts in the latter direction"
They have appointed a committee called the Edmonton Board
of Public Welfare, for the purpose of creating as much employment as possible.

After having marched around
the block the procession retired
to the lodge rooms, (Burch's hall.)
The occaison was the installation of the Prince George subordinate lodge No. 1051 of the

Farewell Luncheon to Mr. Seaman
The departure of H. C. Seaman, one
of the pioneer bankers of this place,
was made the occasion of an enjoyable
luncheon Monday last, at the residence
of Russell Peden. The guests were

Railroad Officials Pass Through
On Thursday of this week President
Chamberlain and Vice-President Donaldson, of the Grand Trunk Pacilic, passed
through town in their private car enroute to Prince Rupert. They did not
stop longer then was necessary to
change crews and went right on, It is
their intention to stop over here on
their return trip.
Mr. Chamberlain announced that the
building of the Round Hoi'ise would go
forward at once, and it is to be hoped
that other work promised and long expected will soon be under way.

means would be furnished to tide

There is the station site, the
round houses, and railroad shops.
There is the Pacific Great Eastern
construction north. The Government can do much in prosecuting
the local road improvements.
The City of the Georges was
been promised a great deal while
the sale of lots was going on. We
still wait for some fulfilment of
these great promises.
Possibly finances have stopped
some of this work, but some portion of it could be done. The
Provincial Government should be
importuned to start something in
the way of local improvements
and call upon the Pacific Great

work.

you more than the inferior.
It's success lies in the "get-up,"
type arrangement, and color
scheme. It is simple and dignified type - setting that attracts.
Simplicity appeals to all classes
of people. The most pleasing
attracts the most attention and
consequently the most custom.
A firm's goods are judged by
the class of printing sent out.
This is the most economical way
of attracting fresh customers.
Printing is a public link which
connects the maker of the goods
with the people who buy them,
therefore, printing properly
handled will always sell goods.

west this year has its harvest of
hogs, sheep, cattle, and horses
all bringing good prices.
While Canadians do not wish
to be enriched at the cost of suffering and privation in the countries now being swept clean of
everything by the fighting armies
in the field, yet it is inevitable
that the Canadian farmer must
indirectly benefit from his produce, which must be bought by
the countries reduced to starvation by the war.

"The Labor of a human being is
not a commodity or an article
of commerce."
In these few simple words is
embodied a great principle and
fundamental truth.
Labor  was a commodity and
an article of commerce when it
was bought and sold under cover
of the common law, as in the
case of indentured servants,
*e°t I when it was trafficed in by whole-

priced labor as in the states,
These infamies have all been
stopped by law.
It is more than a sentiment
even more than a principle.
It is an invincible truth as
deadly to the mummers of so
called political economy in the
books as to inhumaity and greed
in action.

there arc three things that
come suddenly to mortals; they
are life, death and love.
One moment we are not, the
next we live; one moment we
are, the next we are not; one
moment our hearts are cold, the
next they are on fire.-J. R.
Wallace.
Each man's mind is and unknown land to himself, so that
we should not be at such pains
to frame a mechanism of adventure for getting to undiscovered
countries.-Samuel Butler,
The work an unknown good
man has done is like a vein of
water flowing hidden underground, secretly making the
ground green.—Carlyle.
No wife should tell her husband of her mistakes, domestic
or otherwise; he will see quite
enough of them for himself.—
Marie Connor Leighton.
War is that miserable desolat-
ion that finds a land before it
like Eden, and leaves it behind
like Sodom and Gomarrah.-T.
Adams.
Our right to enjoyment is
limited by the similar right of
those who live at the same time
as ourselves.—Maurice Maeterlinck.
Hundreds of people can talk
for one who can think, but thou-
sauds can think for one who can
see. —Ruskin.

Sept. 24th.—ThesuspenBe and anxiety
of the last ten days of the Battle of
the Aisne has been keen. The battle
of thc Masne lasting 6 days and of
Charleroi 3 days, were, it seemed, not so
tense. The censorship is very strict.
Our people live midst hope and fear.
Unconfirmed reports give the allies
the belter of the fight. Physical endurance ol the armies engaged must
soon give way to the stronger, and the
question we are all waiting to have
solved is lo which side is the victory
to be accorded.

The Hidden Life
We live our inmost lives alone;
At best we are but little known,
And even those who know us
best,
Have probed to find within our
breast
That secret place, that hidden
source
Of life's expression.   But, of
course,
They probe in vain.   The life
lived there,
No mortal soul may with us
share
Deep in the confines of the heart
Where all life's mighty issues
start
There is a hidden sphere, unknown
To others- there we live alone.
Alone! Alone!   We long in vain
For sympathy to ease our pain;
For some heart that can understand.   Grace Howe Burby.
