a duet which was heartily applauded.
At the conclusion of the duet, Mrs.,

was introduced. MrB. Sturdy had
chosen as her subject "Helen Keller"
and the club has never listened to a
■more interesting or better delivered
address. The speaker was thoroughly

showed that she had spared neither'
time nor trouble in preparation of
"her paper. A more interesting, subject
would be hard to Imagine und every
one was Interested In the almost
miraculous story of the wonderful
girl's life. Mrs. Sturdy told the story]
of Miss Keller's'life, showing how despite the terrible handicaps under
which she was born and subsequent
misfortunes, she has conquered all
and stands today before the world, a
bright and shining example of the
power of education.
Mrs. Sturdy read several selections
from the works of Helen Keller as an

Young People's Society
Debates Cause of War
The Young Peoples' society of St.
John's church held a successful meeting last evening when three interesting papers, dealing with events leading to the present war, were read.
Miss Janey Little, convener of the
educational committee presided. The
first paper dealt with the relutlons of
the various nations for some years
previous to the outbreak of hostilities, showing Germany's aspirations
to extend her boundaries from the
North Sea to the Adriatic. For years
she had been preparing to strike
when the opportunettime arrived, and
only used the assassination of the
grand duke as an excuse to begin operations. Another paper very clearly
outlined Germany's naval policy,
which had in view tho supremacy of
the sea and curtailment of the ambitions of Great Britain. The other
paper dealt with the immediate
events preceding the war and showed
how Sir Edward Grey had striven
strenuously to avoid a general conflict. The papers which were read by
Messrs. Little, Haddon ande Twiss,
gave the audience a clear Idea of the
cause of events which culminated In
the present great European war.
There was discussion after the papers
wcrn read, and the meetin" closed
*ith the singing of the national anthem.
The Phoenix     Rink company     has

The followiag letter from Rev. W.
Lashley Hall Is published in a Vancouver  newspaper:
Sir,—Are there not numbers of
homes—running into thousands—in
BritiBh Columbia and throughout thc
Dominion which would be proud to
receive Belgian families and tide
them over the winter; and then when
spring comes these tamilies could be
placed upon the land?
This would be extending hospitality
in the hour ot direst need—relieving
congestion at the centre—and introducing in Canada a population of
the  most  valuable  kind.
Of course It would have to be a
scheme with the backing of the various governments/ to provide transportation and carry it through; but we
should thereby link the voluntary
help of the individual with the services of the state in bringing relief
to these poor, harried people and in
relieving the situation  at large.
Some have spoken of the opportunity offered by thc distressed Belgians,
as a prospective gold mine. I cannot
say I like tha comparison, undoubted
truth though there be in the view put
forward. I rather make appeal in:
this moment of human exigency to

Apropos of the rcmarkuble enthusiasm shown in Canada In raising the
second contingent, the Yorkshire Post
says: "Canadians are under no illusion ns to what thc triumph of Germany would mean. They realize keenly that the free life of Canada is at
stake, anil that the Monroe doctrine,
for which the Kuiser has tbe most
profound contempt, would be treated
merely us a scrup of paper."
The  Japanese government are   con
ridering the advisability  of forbiding '
the shipment of   coal   from  Japan to
the  Phillipines.   It is strongly     sus-1

Capt. Shultz, formerly a well-known

A "blanket" policy scheme has been
agreed by the London, Ontario, city
council in connection with insuring
the local members of the first Canadian contingent. Every one i of over
five hundred Londoners who have already left, British reservists and

#1,000, and the same principle will
be followed with regard to those who
leave with the second contingent.
Aa important decision handed down
by the privy council last week, declares ultra vires those clauses of
British Columbia Companiea act,
whfich requires companies incorporated by Dominion letters patent, to
take out provincial licence and register in the province. The case in
point was the famous John Deere
Plow company suit. The company had
not registered in this province and
had been denied the right to sue in
British Columbia courts. In the appeal the Attorney-General of the
Dominion intervened.
Berlin papers now reaching London
bear evidence of the increasing hatred
of Great Britain. The immediate
cause ot this fresh outbursh Is the
destruction of the 30 or more German
ships at Antwerp. The Local Anzelger
declares that Germany will get over
the loss, but demands that she ahall
reply by aching always and everywhere on the same principle. It declares it must be clear to every German that "there can be no peace and
no rest for us on earth until we have
had a final and satisfactory reckoning with the nation of Britons."

The British post oflice hus reveived
the high commissioner's secretary on
the subject of placing orders tor telegraph poles in the Dominion, and informed h'inv that whereas competition

The military medical authorities at
Lyons, in France, recently issued the
following appeul to the population:
"Many of the wounded are so exhausted from loss ol blood that the
only chance of saving their lives is
by prompt transtusion from the veins
of healthy and strong men and -women. Those who wish to offer their
hlood for such transfusion are invited to give in their names." The response was prompt and the doctors
have quite a large wattling list.
No nurses urn'-wanted from Canada,
at least not at present, and none -will
be sent from here to England or the
continent unless the department ot
militia decides to send ambulance units) with the second contingent, iu
which case the usual complement go.

The terrible floods which mark every
freshet season in the land of Confucius are due to the cutting off of the
timber generations ago and the subsequent erosion which has made replanting all but impossible. The
crowded condition of many sections
is due to a lack of modern methods
of agriculture and a very Imperfect
knowledge of Irrigation. If the millions of ncres under discussion can be
reclaimed, a long step will be taken
towards ending the devastating famine and ppstilcncp%-hlch now have

A scheme which hus tor its object
the revival ot the local tobacco grow-
Ing industry, which owing to the
collapse through flagrant mismanagement and extravagance of the Bi'itish
North American Tobacco company,
has naturally been  suspended,     was
laid before a public meeting of farmers and others in the board of trade
rooms hist Thursday evening by Mr.
Klelne, a representative ofthe firm Of
Youngheart & Co,, olgar manufacturers of Montreal, says the Kelowna
Mr.   Klelne,   whose  many  years of ex
perlence in all phases ol tobacco
growing, curing, manufacturing and
marketing, make him a well recognized authority on the subject has been
In the district for some time past enquiring closely into tlie situation here,
declared   emphatically     that he      was
profoundly Impressed with the suitability of the Kelowna climate and
soil for the mishit; of tobacco. Beyond any doubt, it had been proved
that the quality of leaf which could
be crown here was such that would
command a ready market and he bc-
lieved  that notwithstanding anything
that had happened once it could be
placed upon a proper footing there
w-aB the makings of a large and profitable industry for the farmers if
they were Willing to take the chance
of doing a little pioneering work.
The proposition which he bad to
make he frankly admit toil was in tho
nature of a gamble, but one in which
his drm of Youngheart & Co., was
willing to take equal risks with the
growers. Briefly his plan was that
a sufficient number of growers should
raise next, year, a crop of tolmcco, ag.
gregatlng if possible a total   of   200
ere    which they would harvest,   put
Into parcels and ship to Quebec. There
lis  tirm   would  receive  it and  perform
the subsequent operations of grading
and curing, and sell it to the best
advantage. The total proceeds would
then be divided equally between themselves and tin growers, It had been
lound he said that the acreage cost
of raising a crop of tobacco, mclud-
• I. • the preparation of the lapd,
plants, planting and harvesting, was
as nearly is possible five cents per
pound, and thai the grading and cur-
■ si aboui the same figure. Thus
f is arm would be risking in such a
venture precisely the same amount of
money as the growers. Assuming that
only ten cents per pound was realized

would ound,     and

It is very little use for us in Phoenix to blind ourselves to the condition of affairs as they exist in this
city today. It is an undisputed fact
that no other community in the province, or for that matter In the
Dominion, has sustained so great a
blow owing to the war as has been
the case with Phoenix. The mines
the only source of revenue, have beeu
| forced to cease operations, and already the city authorities have been
applied to by several for assistance.
But as the greater part of those in
need are resident outside of the
municipal boundaries, the matter of
relief becomes a subject for govern
mental consideration. According to a
census taken recently, there will be
about 300 people, including children
who will require assistance to exist
throughout  the  winter.—phoenix Pio-

Art of Painting Tone
Developed by Ellison
Recording what he saw was one of
man's earliest pastimes. Prehistoric
caves—the ruins of Nineveh the pyramids of Egypt—these reveal some of
ble early eflorts to picture the im-
prewions r<eceived through his sense
ol sight.
Centuries passed before these crude
outline drawings, without shade or
expression, developed Into the masterpieces of Rembrandt, Raphael and
RubenB,  where all the wealth of form
live. Nowadays the perfection ot
painting, photography, color printing and lithographing enables one to
6ee and enjoy the beauties of the
whole world, at trifling expense, and
without moving far from our own
But while the art of recording and
reproducing things visible had thus
been perfected through the ages, the
sister art of recording and reproducing sound was only born some 37
years -»go, when Thomas A. Edison
brought out his first pbonoeraph.
As might be eipect>-d, this first
phonograph, like mac's first sketches
produced only barely recognizable outlines of the original. The wealth of
overtones, which give expression und
melody to voice or music, were lost.
But a start had heen made. For tbe
first time in the world's history,
sound had been reproduced.
Since then it has been simply a
case of development. But since Bdi-
son has h^n behind it, tbis development has been phenomenally rapid,
reaching Its climax in the wonderful
Edison Diamond Disc and Ambrola
Phonographs, recently perfected. Here
at last nre instruments that truly
reproduce music and do not distort
This is accomplished by two die»-
tinctive Edison leatures, the diamond
reproducer point. and tbe entirely
new and remarkably hard material
used in the records. The diamond
point which, by the way, never has
to be changed, is practically trfction-
W-ss. Wonderfully sensitive it follows
the most minute waves in the hard
record, searching out and faithful'?
reproducing the overtones, of the
voice or music, and pouring out a
flood of deep, rich, mellow swwtness.
In designing this reproducer, Edison,
with his characteristic thoroughness,
constructed nnd teheed out over
■Jf-OO different models. The result amp'-
ly repays tbe eflorts spent on it, for
the Bdison phonograph gives, to use
the inventor's own words, "Music at

Ashcroft Reached on
Tramp Round World
Dr. Dawson, the pedestrain who is
on a tan years' walk around the
world with an 95 pound pack on his
back for a consideration of 825,000,
gave a lecture in Russell's movie hall
on Wednesday night last of the varied and unique experiences of his
long tramp. Dr. Dawson has about
reached the end of his unprecedented
journey, and is due in Australia on
January 1st, L91S In order to win
his reward. The lecture was interesting only in so far as it was delivered
by a person who had actually walked
ahout To.nfio miles, touching every
country in the world and carrying 86
lbs, on his back; and the attraction
was more in t.he man than in the lecture, because of tha countries through
which he had travelled, he told us
nothing. Of course it takes a keen
observer to collect on a journey of
this kind, and an experienced lecturer
to  deliver  afterwards,      facts      which
would be IntereMtlng te. an audience.
Dr. Dawson's narrative was interesting in the fact that he stands alone
among men in his iCCompllshment of
this feat.—Ashcroft Journal.
