i ost   widely  known ministers of that
denomination.  He had held many im-
pgrtant offices In the church,   having
.een President    of     Conference,     fre-
, .1'iitly     elected     to the chair of the

The monthly business meeting of
tbe Red (Moss Society was held in'
tbe Y.M.C.A., Tuesday, December 12,'

As wool is advancing in price and.
likely to lie a shortage, it was decided to order a £ood supply, so that
within the next few weeks the Society
expect to have a supply sufficient for
11 i   year.
The following articles were shipped
to the Revelstoke hoy.- of the 54th
Battalion: 26 shirts, 7' pairs socks,
50 towels.
\s there appears to be a misunder-
regarding shipments to the
ti nches, wi would like to explain.
This branch of Red Cross work Ib
handled by the Field Comforts Commission, and is sent whenever direct-
ed.
The following work was banded in:
Paid sewing 10 shirts, Mrs. .1. Wil-
-iin   : shirts   Mrs.  Kails 2 shiits.
