Mrs. Haggen was the hostess at a
delightful and successful tea on
Saturday afternoon, given in aid of
the local Red Cross branch. Her
spacious rooms looked most charming, spring Mowers in abundance, the
color scheme in the decorations being
thc natural red, white und blue. A
unique feature wus introduced on tbis
occasion, all the ludies in any way
rendering assistance wearing the uniform of the . Red Cross nurse, and
without exception it was a most becoming costume.
Mrs. Haggen received her guests at
the door and after each had admired
the decorations and other attractions
they were ushered into the dining-
room where afternoon tea was served. A perfectly appointed tea table
was presided over during the tirst
hour by Mrs. W.H. Pratt and Mrs.
Tomlinson; these ladies heing relieved by Mrs. G. S. McCarter and Mrs.
W. H. Sutherland. The young ladies
who served the guests were the
Misses Haggen, Hyatt, Hughes and
Sibba'al; Mrs. Sibbald and Mis. N.
R. Brown gave assistance during the
afternoon  wherever  most needed.
In the reception room were spread
the culinary and candy tables and
these were loaded with the gopd
things they bore. The culinary table
was pr<BBldeed over by Mrs. Atkins.
Mrs. Downs, Mrs. Hogan and Mrs.
Wallace.      while      Mrs.      Holten   had
charge of the candy table, and long
before the close of the alt rn on
these ladles had disposed of all their
delicious stores. Mrs. Krnest 11. S.

The lb" lew Informs us that RevelBtoke Liberals are much Interested ill
the activities of  the "machine,"     If
that  is  the  ease it  should  recommend
them to read the Evening Jouunnl,
the newspapi r published In Vancouver      by   Una.   Joseph   Martin.       Ml.
Martin has come to the west carrying a special     commission from Sir
Wilfrid   Laurier  and his  c einiiients  On
the   "machine"  as be Iiu.Is  it. in   Brit
ish   Columbia   are well   worth   the   attention of members     of   the  Liberal
I arty,
In the tirst edition of bis paper
Mr. Martin discussed tlr' prospects
of the Liberal party In the coming
provincial election. He remarked that
at the last election the Liber.lis
"were unable to elect a single candidate on their side aul in many con-
Btituencies were unable to get a
candidate to carry their banner" and
he went on to say that be could ses |
".nothing to indicate any ch nge in
publie opinion with respect to the
Liberal party, so far as provincial
affairs are concerned," the reason being thut "the same men who were In
charge "f the party fortunes at the
last election are still the controlling
influences in its management." He
added that be did not see that tbe
Liberal party was In a position to
offer "Competent and suitable men"
to replace  Sir  Richard  McBride     and
Ins colleagues.
For this deplorable condition of
the Liberal party Mr. Martin blames
ji disced'.ted "machine." Thos • in Con
treel e.f the party, and who, i:i bis own
words, "carried the llag of Liberal
to disgraceful] defeat ln this province at thc general elections of 1909
and 1912," Mr. Martin denominates
th" 'Kelly graft.'1 and be further
describes them is "political undesirables." Their work in the present
campaign is still conspicuous, Mr.
Martin flames them foi the fiasco in
which the Liberal convention In Van
( ended last week, when no
candidate-,   were   nominated,   and      do-

ing to the United States cenBUB report of 1'.110 there were only about
fc.O'OO,01)11 Germans there four years
ago, uud tbere is no rcusun to suppose that the number has qcen increased by more than a million since.
The Providence Journal points out
that while tb-' Germans arc inure
numerous in the United States than
the people of uny other alien race,
'they are Inferior In number to those
of Uritish birth and parentage. The
Bill) census shows thnt the natives of
England, Wales, Scotland and lre-
lnmd nnd the children born in the
United States of British parentage
numbered 7,757,920. In nddition there
Wore   nearly   2,0'00,000  Canadians      or
children, bo n of Canadian parents,
Since only T> per cent, ol the population of Canada In '.his year were of
other Hum British or Frivnch origin
il is evident that of this two million
95 percent, were British or of British blood. So that. four yeai'B ago
there were more British-Americans
than Gorman-Americans; It is worth
noting, however, that the hyphen is
rarely used in this case. Tbc American resident of British blood considers himself either British or American.  Me is no hybrid.
If the original British stock in the
l'nited States hud completely died
out, the British emigrants and their
children would have greatly out
numbered those of German ancestry,
but it has not died out, and the
great majority of American citizens
today have British blood ia their
veins. In the evemt of German-Americans organizing for the purpose of in-
tluencimr American foreign policy in
a milliner favorable to Germany, the
Americans who have blood ties with
the Allies could organize with more
formidable results. However, there.
bas been no talk of any such organization. What will happen if the pro-
Germans make good their threat to
menace American public men who will
ned bow to their wishes is tbat they
will automatically organize all non-
German-Amerlcan8 againBt then:, and

This is Mr. Hoover's American commission for tbe feeding of the starving  Uelgii'tis.   I don't know  anything
j quite comparable with it as a work
or  rapid  ami  brilliant     organization
. and of the fine personal service
which has inspired it. The commission has hid to deal with over a million starving people, scattered over
a country held in ruthless occupation
by a vigilant enemy. In all, it Inn
had to tind about u million and a

bad to import its suppl'lcs from Amine;!, distribute them, and see that
they were not impounded by German

'Whut. on earth is this all about,'
Inquired the remount officer of his
assistant, 'What, sort of horse is it?
Wnlcr, Arab, or country-bred?'
'Thut /poor old screw, sir. You saw
him in thc stables. He has not a
leg to stand on, and all tho oats in
India would never get him in condition again. You christened him
Kosinante II.'
'I remember now. Well, this Poor
old Don Quixote from up-country
means well. H'is suntinients areiflUlte
sound if his remount isn't. Mount a
sowar on the beast, to-morrow, morning and huve him photographed on
the Maidan by the Warren Hastings
btatue. After that you may dispose: of
the horse. Acknowledge this letter,
thank Mr. Milki Ram for his gift,
and send him the photograph. That
is all we can do.'
Thc remount officer wus soon engrossed in a pile of papers and tbe
problem of how it was possible to
import 10,000 horses from Australia
when the government at Simla bad
instructed the government of the
Commonwealth to stop shipping horses out of Australia until further
notice. Next day Rosinante II., was
sent to thq kennels. A fortnight elapsed. One day an elderly native gcntlc-
mun was shown into the office. It
was no other than Milki Ram himself
After a few friendly remarks ancnt
the war and the position'of the
Allies in Helgiuni, the remount officer
politely inquired what there; was that
he could do for hiB visitor.
'Sir,' replied thc old Zemindar, '1
thank you vcry much for photograph
of my horse with sowar on tiack, and
now come to say good-bye to horse
before he go to war. Little tbin no
doubt, hut very goud horse, aud like
sou to me.'
'Oh, yes," said the oflicer, sitting
up in his chair, 'of course. Your
horse. You—er—presented him to
government. Very good of you, sir.
Let me see—er—chestnut Waler, wasn't it—IC hands, rising seven? I remember. And you want to see him?'
'Just have little talk with him,
sir. Very old friend. Nearly thirteen
'Really!' replied tbc officer. 'Well,
if you could make H convenient to
look lin this afternoon we'll try to
turn the horse out for you. By the
way, you must be prepared for a
great change in bis, appearance. What
witb change, of climate and food and
one thing und another ho looks quite
another horse now.' 'That is goed,'
Baid Milki Rum. 'Very good. Now
horse strong, no doubt.'
The remount officer's assistant
spent the;best part of an hour in
hurriedly selecting a suitable substitute for the departed Rosinaute,
and ut lust he wub successful in
Itiuding u borse sometbiug like him—
in color uud height.
Milki Ram was cBCurtcd to tbe
stables. Though the horse did not
appear to remember him, be remembered tho horse,, which he addressed
affectionately in Hindustani, tilling
bim to be brave in battle und to do
what his rider told him 'Suih an
old friend.' he explained to (he officer
'like brother. Little sad to say goodbye. Hut British must win battle, and

Not since the declaration of war
had there been such commotion in
the little Belgian hamlet. The excited groups gathered in the quuiut old
street were talking of a matter that
had toncned every heart. Lys Dek-
kcrt, the widow, who already had
three sous lying hastily buried, she
knew not where, was sending her
last son,  a lad of fifteen,  to the war.
All eyes were turned toward the
tiny garden, where the widow stood
among her hollyhocks and petunias,
saying good-bye to the boy. The
village* felt pride in the stoic patriotism of the old peasant mother on
whose|face joy and pride shone'bravely through the marks of recent sorrow.
"Hut, mother, you must take the
money,' the hoy waB saying. 'You
must have spectacles so us to use
your eves. I shan't want tho money
and you will get ,my pay every month
'Hut tell me,' said tho widow.
'Where did you get so much money?'
'Well, I got a little whoa 1 enlisted.
And  thin  I—1  sold the calf.'
'Why did you do that? I'll be sorry
to have it gone. It. would have been
company. I wi'll be lonesome here
'Vou  promised  not  to say  that any
more mother, Besides', there will be
newspapers to read.1
"lhe newspapers don't print the
truth,' said the old woman. 'And 1
have been ; getting my news from the
war fast enough without their help,'
bhe added  patiently.
'Well, then, I am going to write
you some line, long letters. Gome,
mother; it's time for me to go.
Here's the money. Go to town tomorrow, if the roads arc safe, und
get your glasses, and then you'll be
ready to read  my  first letter.'
The widow took the money. Then
she kissed the boy on his forehead
am! hade him farewell. She watched
lis slender, boyish figure as he climbed the long street. He did not look
back. Just before he disappeared she
remembered the ancient superstition
that you should .not watch the departing out of sight. She threw her
shawl over her head and hurried up
the petunia bordered path into the
silent,  lonely house.
The next morning Lys Dckkert hitched her great shaggy dog to his
cart and drove acrosB thc fields to
the market town; and there, after
driving a shrewd bargain with the
dialer, she purchased the cheapest
spectacles in his shop. Then followed
days of loneliness such as she had
never known. She tried to read the
newspapers, but they were full of
hard words, and spoke in a confusing
way of armies as great machines,
She took more pleasure iu reading
her hook of prayers. Hut she was
happiest when sitting in the evening

the promised letter was long iu
coming, but at last, one aftoruuon, a
neighbor's child cume dancing down
ihe street, calling out that a letter
bad come for tbe widow, and waving
the envelope in tho air. Lys De.tkert
rose from her chair among the hollyhocks (With perfect |dignity and took
thc letter from the chiUd's bund. She
thrust it. into the pocket of her apron
and even stopped to chat with the
little messenger a moment. Tbe neighbors should not know how much her
lirst letter mount to her.
When the widow sat down again ber
heart was beating violently. Little
specks swam before ber eyes as they
used to do when she bad lifted some
grent wei'ght in the (fields. Her hands
trembled as Bhe put, on the (parses.
She examined tbe envelope care-
liilly, aud read with great pride her
wn name and the nume of the village, written in a beautiful bold hand.
Sbe\had not known that her Aioy was
so good a penmun.
After turning thc envelope over
many times, thc widow tore it open.
And then slowly and laboriously she
spelled  out thc letter:
'Dear Madam,—I regret, that it iB
my duty to inform you that your son
Bugler  Karl  Dekkcrt,   was killed      in
action at five days ago. The  body
was  buried upon the  Held.
'With sympathy,        His Captain.'
The widow sat u.uictly     while    thc
evening sunshine faded from the tops
of tho hollyhocks, from the topnioBt
branches of the lindons, and from the
tall steeple of the parish church.
Then, when only a faint Hush tinged,
tbe highest, clouds, she lose and entered thel house.
She took oil her spectacles and put
them carefully in their neat, black
case. She went to the shelf where
stood the clock that had ticked in

Miss Boyd's Recital
(From an Outsider's Standpoint)
We all have ambition, more or
Seas, wc would not be worth much
without it, but only a favoured few
attain the desired goal. That Miss
Boyd's program wus an ambitious
■ine.we saw at a glance -.nt. the names
of the composers, and some of the
well-known and well loved pieces. To
expect pupils, after only one year's
tuition, to render these to a well-
tilled house, seemed indeed to ask
the Impossible, but tlie recital is
'list another proof, that sometimes,
when a Beaming i impossible standard
'\as been set. up, humanity Will rise
to 'it. I think Miss Boyd can del
ihat   her ambition      was   very   nearly
ittalned. Her recital  throughout was
if exceptional quality, a few ot her
pupils already the master
Miss Bella Laughton, for instance,
showed quite exceptional talent and
•ine   execution  In  her      rendering      of
"Music Among the pines" (Wymann)
ind, given plenty tuition and practise,  has a musical future before her.
Th i two movements from 'Beethoven's exquisite "Moonlight" wer.'
played with good expression and
feline; by Miss Sheila 'Dickey. I
■ lon't know if others feel about the
"Moonlight" as 1 lo. It has a spiritual eff'ct upon me. and lifts me, as
'it were, entirely out of the'body. To
me it is a sacred piece, .full of aspir-
itions after the higher life. Perhaps
I am intiuenced by the story of how
Beethoven came to compose it for a
poor blind girl in a garret .in Bonn,
whose one tallow candle burnt out
leaving only the moonlight streaming
into the room almost bare of everything but the piano. Tbe tirst movement, so full jf sadness aud pathos,
Miss Dickey rendered beautifully, only tbe motif note In the treble I
would have Viked to have heard more
marked and pronounced, In playing
tne Allegretto, Miss Dickey should
have shown more tire and vim,
pouncing upon it, us it were, utter th? dreamy Adagio Sostenuto;
then the heavy and slower octaves of
the Trio, marking again time and
volume of sound, with the pianiBBemo'
whispering out the message. But
Miss Dickey is to be congratulated on
the whole, and by the time she has
beard the "Moonlight' as often us I,
she will play lt perfectly. The com
parison [now draw«is between the
tendering of an amateur and that ot
Padereouski, the greatest pianist in
the world, -md surely that is a compliment.
Miss Lily Abrahams.m, in her ren-
lering of Moezkowekl's "Minuet"
would have done well to play it less
quickly. The same was to he noted
in the beautiful duet from Tannhous-
er, played by ber and her sister Miss
Udlth, These young ladies however,
redeemed themselves in their One
translation of "Poet and Peasant"
(P von Suppe) which made a brilli-
:iit finale to the •probram, Miss
Florence McCarty played her Sonatina (Auston), .clearly* with tinely
marked time, and J'y Pense Air de
Pallet" (Fanchetti) with taste and
feeling. Master Harry Hack's "Trumpeter's Serenade iSnindlerl was well
received. In "The Pixie Drill"
(Brown), Miss Esther Abrahamson
showed nice tones and light touch.
Miss Kuth Brown basin her the
!• alcings of a good musician; her
tones, in "Notturno" (Nevin) were
excellent. Miss Irene Trimble played
Merry Kate" (Ellenberg) just awfully well, Miss Amy Smythe played
"Notturnino" (Bosal), carefully and
well, and   Miss Hiln Tomlinson     in
Bohm'B Hungarian Dance showed a
line light touch and marked good expression Miss Ethel Ai (rahamson
opened the second half>ol > the program, with Freinst's Recreation, Well
played. Miss Doris Se'igfried played
"La Fete mix Champs" lUucbmunn)
excellently with line touch and expression, Miss Florence Bourne, Paul
Wach's difficult "Lallnncilli" exceptionally well. "Little Sweetheart"
(Holm) 'by Miss Marion Lawrence was
well received. Master Leu Hobson
played "Beethoven's Lust Composition" with deep feeling and expression. Miss (lerty Field was too .nervous to do justice to her playing of
"Pavane" (Schytte), M ss Kathleen
Sutherland showed, promise in the
playing of "Cup1,d's Hard n" (Eugene)
"Tulip" (Lichiier) seemed beyond the
capacity of Miss Alma Lee. Bieder
malm's "Notturno" was played well
by      Miss   Dorothy   Mackenrot.      and
"Dance EspagncViC" tSartorlo) was
very finely played by Stanley Maim
lng, "Evening Prayer" iFrinsti
showed good feeling as played by
Miss Maude Hopgood, and Mis< Donna Hume's rendering of "Madrllena"
I Wacks) was well receive I. 1 have
left the first little performer for the
last, because she is the smallest-
Miss  Ruby  Rutherford      played      her

tiny fingers accurately striking tbe
I hope our young friends won't
min I my hard criticism. Believe me,
you who have ^'our lives before you,
it will do you much more good than
stupid praise, laid on "with a sbo-
>el"; for we must never be satisfied
With anything  short of perfection.
Miss Boyd was assisted at her recital, by her sister, Miss Marjorie,
who is a violinist of exceptional talent. She shows very plainly the
"divine spark" of genius, and I prophesy that Revelstoke will yet be
proud thnt she made her Canadian
debut in the Capital of the Rockies.
We, who have heen musically starved
for some years, feel we owe her a
very deep debt of gratitude for her
glorious solos.

The Pendleton Oregonian gives the
following account of a fast battle In
which Bobby Evans formerly of Revelstoke was the  victor: .
In one of the fastest, scrappiest,
most thoroughly ' satisfactory battles
seen in Pendleton for some years,
Hobby EvanB ol Portland and Eddie
Shannon of Spokane fought I•"> rounds
to a draw decision in th.' Oregon
i heater. That is to say the decision
of Referee Jockey Bennett made the
bout a draw but, had the audience
1 cen th? judge and jury, there is no
question but that Evans' right mil
would   have been raised aloft.
To the mind of the average spectator, and there wns a house full of
this kind, Evans bad tbe better of
the tistic argument throughout. He
is the cleverer and more scientific
boxer of thc two, wns on the aggressive most of the time, though the
Irish kid was no backaway tighter,
and landed by long odds tin more
blows. He did not have a haymaker,
. however, i sufficient to stow his op-
pnent away and the best he could do
' Kae to punish him with nasty jabs
on tbe beak and  jowl.
Shannon had a haymaker nil right
but it was as lutile against the clever Portland lightweight as a German siege gun is against an aeroplane. He started it on its mission
time and again but, Evans always
danced away and it. fell upon empty
For the i first five or six rounds
there was no clear advantage in the
lighting though Evans got in the
more blows ol tbe two. Before the
tenth arrived, Shannon's face showed
signs of punishment and many of the
fans thought he would be unable to
last through. However, at the tap of
the gong he was always ri-'ht back
at his man and' in the final round
was going strong. His gameness,
willingness und ability to take punishment won him many admirers but
there were lew but thought that he
was outfought.
It was a tight all the way through
and the audience enjoyed the battle
hugely. Promoter R.C. Shaw came in
lor much i raise for bringing the
lightweights together In this city and
!,,r conducting a clean bout in a
creditable  manner.
