creased interest in the time to come.
Men have delighted to give a whole
lifetime to their study — the
greatest minds—only to acknowledge
that the writings are higher than
They are never out or date, and are
as up to date today as when they
were written. Instance the wonderful
poem with which the book of Genesis opens. Where else shall we find
compressed into a page a survey of
the universe from the beginning,
with its orderly development (under
the form of days) and 'its ascending
scale of being culminating in man?.
The sacred writings pulsate with
vitality. They portray a picture of
life beyond dreams, and show That
Life actually personified on earth—
the Life that blessed all It touched.
They always speak sense, having always something to say, and saying
it—unlike some persons in our experi-.
They bring us close to the heart of
things—to the hidden Mystery, the
spring of life—to thc Heart that
beats behind all the passiug shows of
Today men of all races are reading,
of all types of mind, in a'.l walks of
life. It is the only book sold at' all
times at less than cost. Hence the
need of a Uible society, which, the
more business it does, the more it
needs help.
The  snered  writings—both  of     Old
and New Testaments—have a     secret
to deliver up to the one that     reads
aright.   Vou  can  read  without  interest,   without  profit,      without understanding,  and fail to note that there
is  an    unseen     Agent    co-opernting,
making the    meaning known.     There
are difficulties which you want to   bb
honest and not pretend not   to     exist.      You    don't     believe in plural
wives!   You cannot justify coming   in
with  a  message and   sticking a knife
through   the  heart—in   the  name     of
thc Lord!  That conception of God is
not  Christian.  If   you havc a theory
that  doesn't square with the     facts,
don't try to make the facts fit     thc
theory,  hut  make the theory   fit   thc
(acts!  The  fathers had  a theory     of
verbal   inspiration,  which  was no dit-
| Acuity   for them  but is a difficulty  for
' us. Not every scripture is inspired of
Cod.  but every scripture Inspired   of
| God  is  profitable in   varying    depree.
' UecauBC of an impossible theory some
I of the best minds have been arrayed
I against  the church.     We   require     a
I theory,    which recognises the   human
] elements  as well as divine;    just     as
today,  with the dreadful conflict   go-
I ine  on.   God has  His own hiph   pur-
I pose  as in  the  neginning,   which   He
is carrying out,     without overriding
human  agency.  It  is from that   One
Spirit  operating  in    manifold   forms
that the sacred writings spring.
I   cannot  recommend    a  mechanical
reading.   What will suit one will    not
suit another.    In a busy     age     time
-.   You  may  ;uck  out gems here

Unless Rexall Orderlies relieve your
■ bowel troubles and make you feel liloe
coming back to rhank us for telling
you a'hoiit them, then come back anyway, and ask us to give you back
your money. This is just as Btrong
;as wc can make this guarantee, and
we want to make it strong, because
we believe that Rexall Orderlies are
the be«t  bowel  remedy made.
Soothing and easy in action, they
. dense the bowels, thoroughly toning
and strengthening them, and make
you feel greut. They promote easy
and regular bowel action, help to
promptly relieve constipation and
overcome its cause. In these things
they differ from old-fashioned, harsh,
disagreeable salts and other physics
which usually give only temporary
relief and often leave the bowels in
worse condition than ever. They taste
like candy and even children like
them. They are particularly good for
children and for delicate and aged
people. In vest pocket tin boxes; 10c
25c.  50c.
You can buy Rexall Orderlies only

town only of us. Bews' Drug Store.

Hotel keepers in Kelowna have applied to the city council for a reduction in license fees. Last year these
were increased from S30O to ?6O0 on
account of alleged prosperity, so in
lean times the hotel men thought
that it was only fair they should now
bc reduced.
It's good policy to think of the future.
It's still better policy toprovide against
the misfortunes it may have In store
for you. The surest way ot protecting
yourself and family is a
with a reliable company. Tbe high
financial standing and long business
career of ihe Kootenay Agencies
makes it absolutely trustworthy.
Your time may be near at hand.
Don't delay.    Take out a policy now.

I'nder the trite, terse beading,
-Murder,'* Collier's Weekly gives its
views of German atrocities. And in
proving that Germany was not jnsti-
r.ed—to express it mildly—In its outrageous treatment of ununiformed
men of Belgium, Collier's uses as an
t\ample its own early history, and
what it might have been if In 1775
tne English had followed German tactics in dealing with those who withstood tbeir advance. While Collier's
has always been most partial in cx-
pressing its unreserved sympathy
with Britain and the allies,- no greater proof of its feelings could he found
than by taking its own cquntry as
in example and in acknowledging the
technical standing of the forces which
were fighting against British rule.
The paragraph is as follows:

Germane have committed In Belg'ium

Lethbridge Herald: We observe with
a good deal of concern that in a
number of the smaller towns of the
province a marked hesitancy is displayed by citizens at the suggestion
that they should serve on the council
board, for the reason no doubt that
owing to the uuusual business conditions they do not want to assume
the responsibilities of oilice during
the coming year. This is a time when
men must make sncrilic.es on behalf
of their communities. It is true, conditions are  bad,   that municipal    I'm-
',-mcing is difficult and the strictest
economy must be observed, but these
! facts warrant     men     of ability and
| public spirit sacrificing their time
and their personal inclinations to
serve the welfare of the communities in which they live. At no period
in our history wi'i 1 saner municipal
government be needed more than during the coining year. Competent men
must be kept at the helm to direct
atlairs. All partisan and sectional
consideration should be buried in the
'common effort to put the control of
municipal affairs In each community
in the hands of men who can rely upon the united support of the people.
Edmonton Journal: There iB nothing that brings home to the close

Edward Adair is
Buried in Vancouver
With many tributes of respect and
esteem of a large c'.rcle of relatives
and friends, the late Edward Adair, a
well-known citizen of Vancouver and
former resident of Revelstoke, was
laid to rest in Mountain View cemetery on Thursday afternoon. While
addressing a meeting of Ward Four
Conservative association on Monday
i.'ight he was seized with an attack of
heart failure which proved fatal.

out that valley will close on Thursday afternoons, commencing January.
At a recent meeting of the shareholders tbe voluntary liquidation ol
the Western Canners Ltd., operating
canneries at Kelowna and Penticton,

however, to postpone such a step.
Large orders for hay are being re-
■ reived by several farmers ln
this district, and from present indications there seems to be little doubt
but that they will be able to dispose of their crops before next season.—Vernon News.
The work of putting up the poles
en the Shuswap Falls brunch of the
government telephone line was completed last Thursday. The wire string
ing will be proceeded with as soon
as all the necessary supplies have arrived.—Vernon NewB.
The resolution of the Silver Creek
Farmers' Institute, urging the Provincial government to enact legislation giving effect to the recommendations of the Royal Commission of
agriculture respecting a system of
farm loans was endorsed and a
similar resolution will be sent as requested.
Mexican money is said to have heen
discovered in circulation in British
Columbia and the public is warned
against accepting it. The money is in
tbe form of 85.00 hills and bears a
i-trong resemblance to Dominion
notes. They are drawn on the Banco
de Coahulla and are value for five
pesos, which would be equal to five
dollars, only the Mexican currency is
depreciated by fifty per cent.
The Kamloops civic hydro-electric
power plant on Barriere River, is
now in operation. The plant consists
of two liOO k.w. generators, each driven by a l,10u h.p. turbine operating
at a head between ISO and l'.K) feet.
The ilume is about 3J miles long, H
feet wide and six feet deep, and of
wooden construction. The transmission line is about 13 miles long and
traverses a country rich in possibilities for irrigation by electric pumping.
At the last meeting of the Vernon
city council Aid. McKenzie introduced an amendment to the milk by-law
which provides that owners of one

cake out B license at a cost of two
dollars a head per year. They are also brought under the provisions ol
the by-law respecting cleanliness of
premises, etc., but are not required
to erect separate milk houses as are
the regular dairymen. The medical
health officer reported that all sampling milk submitted to him was
louBd to be well up to the standard
required by law.
That there is a very marked change
ii the attitude of "the trade" in
Vancouver towards Okanagan, or perhaps better, British Columbia fruit,
is the statement of Mr. S. B. Snider,
who returned from the metropolis
last Friday night. While there Mr.
Snider naturally looked ujiout him to
ascertain the effects of the recent
vigorous campaign for the home
grown fruit, and he says that the
change wrought seems permnnent.
Dealers, now realizing the extent of

I At a meeting of the Kelowna Farm
ers' Institute, stirring speeches were
made by several members in favour
of the establishment of a creamery in
that vicinity. The chairman, sayB the
Courier, urged the members to stir
jup their enthusiasm and make the
scheme a successful one. "If we say
the creamery is going to bc a success,
it will be a success, and if we make
up our minds that we are going to
get this money from the government
then we will get it, because we are
the government," is but a sample of
the many stirring nnd emphatic
phases used by the chairman In an
effort to arouse the meeting to enthusiasm. It was estimated that a
creamery would cost about $.*i,0i>i)
and help $125.00 a month. Application will be made to the government
for financinl assistance to farmerB of
the district to secure 300 additional

This is what Jacob H. Scheff, of
New York, one of the greatest of the
world's financiers, says: "In the role
of a world conqueror Germany would
indulge in a domination which would
be almost unbearable to every other
nation. Particularly would this be
the case in her relations with the
United States, a nation with which
she has had always intimate trade and
commercial relations."
Although Thursday, January 12, is
being mentioned us the date on which
parliament is most likely to meet,
the impression prevails quite generally that it will be one or two weeks
later before the House is assembled.
It is pointed out that as the session
is not likely to be as prolonged as
usual, there will be no disposition
to bring the legislators to Ottawa so
soon alter the Christmas holidays.
While some undoubtedly favor January 12 for the opening, the majority
ure inclined to the view that it will
not take place until the third or
fourth Thursday in the month.
Over two million bushels of wheat
are hein'.' moved from the ports on
the Great Lakes to Portland and
Halifax by the Grand Trunk, from
where it will be shipped to Great
Britain. Thc movement ol grain this
year is much in excess of last year's
movement at this time, say Grand
Trunk officials. In the last week 12
extra freight train crews have been
taken on to work on the Ottawa
division of the Gramd Trunk. Owing
to business being rather slack in
other directions, there is no shortage of cars this year, nor has there
been anv difficulty so far in securing
ships at Portland and Halifax. Most
of the grain Is being moved from
Fort William to convenient railroad
points by boat and will he up till the
close of navigation on the lakes on
December 7.
I The French Bar association has presented to Madame Poincare, wife    of

I ing as a nurse in a hospital organized hy the association.
Richurd Croker, one time leader of
Tammany Hall, was married in the
home of Nathan Strauss in New
Vork, last Thursday, to Miss Buelah
Benton Edmondson, the grand-daughter of the Cherokee Indian chieftain.
Mr. Croker is 73 years old and his
bride, who is a singer, is 23 years
old. A large crowd assembled in
front of the Strauss home when it
became known that the announced
plans of a church wedding had been
chunged at the laBt moment.
Thc British war office is likely to
place huge orders in Canada lor
leather goods equipment. A delegation of 60 of the leading tanners of
Canada was call el in consultation by
Sir George Foster, Minister ot Trade
nnd Commerce, on Friday, nnd asked
if, in the event of such orders being
leceived, they would be able to sup-
■plv the leather. Sir George was as-
nired that the capacity of the Canadian factories is fully equal to any
demand that may bt made on them.
An order-in-council has been passed
forbidding the export from Canada
to any foreign country other than
part of the British empire ol rubber
nnd graphite. This action hns been
taken to prevent supplies of these
rommodities from reaching Germnny.
Canada imports about $-l,O0O,00u
worth of crude rubber yearly, and exports about S50n,<H>n. About $120,000
worth of graphite is exported, principally to the United States, and the
production in Canada amounts to
about SlOO.OW worth per year. It Is
produced at BucMnghcm, Qucyttec. Ca-
