DOWNS TWENTY
*   GERMAN MACHINES
"The British Napoleon of the Air"
is the application that the French
people ascribe to the Nottingham boy
who has to his name the glory of
bringing down twenty-nine enemy
air machines.
A Britisher describes his as "our
star flying fighter, and has the admiration of all his lot. He is a short,
little chap, with longish black hair
and eyes like a hawk—he often does
not trouble to put on his tunic, but
goes to battle in his shirt sleeves."
The lad, Capt. Ball, M.C, D.S.O., to
give him his official designation, with
a reputation second to none in practical aeronautics, is as modest as he is
intrepid. One can read his inner
spirit in the letter he sent to his parents in Nottingham when he had 20
|j machines belonging to the enemy on
j   the ground.
"Up to date I have had eighty-four
air fights and have brought down at
least twenty opposing machines. The
German fliers are worthy fighters,
I simply doing their best as they understand it for their country but they
certainly lack the all-important element of luck."
It was only at the end of last July
the outside world first heard something about Capt. Ball. His name
was amongst the list of those to
whom the Military Cross was awarded, and theofficial notice ran as follows:
"For conspicuous skill and gallantry on many occasions, notably when,
after failing to destroy an enemy
kite balloon with bombs, he returned
for a fresh supply, went back, and
brought it down in flames. He has
done great execution amongst enemy
aeroplanes. On one occasion he attacked six in one night, forced down
two, and drove the others off. This
occurred several miles over the enemy's lines.*'
On Sept. 2—the day before he left
France on short leave—the debonair
airman engaged a fleet of between
twenty and thirty Hun machines,
and brought down four before he
himself descended. When his ammunition ran short he used his revolver, killing the pilot of one of the
German craft. It was for this magnificent exploit that he received the
thanks of General Sir Douglas Haig,
who, on the margin of the official report, wrote with his own hand the
words, "Well done."
On another occasion Captain Ball
flew the great distance of fifteen
miles over the enemy lines. He was
quickly surrounded by a swarm of
German flyers. Three of them were
sent down to earth with their wrecked machines, never to rise again.
And, though the British hero's petrol was running short he managed to
reach our lines in safety. One could
go on indefinitely telling of such
brilliant exploits.
A month ago the captain was
awarded the D.S.O., and also a bar
to the Order, for further heroism.
This wonderful boy is only twenty.
He has been in close on a hunderd
air fights, in which, if he has not
brought down an enemy machine, he
has driven one away. And he began
his military career as a private in
the Sherwood Foresters.
Captain Ball is a native of Nottingham. Hhe was only seventeen when he
enlisted, and while still in the ranks
he w*fs given a commission. He then
transferred to the R. F. C, and learnt
to fly at Hendon.
When last in Nottingham the gallant young airman received many
congratulations from those who were
aware of his great deeds, and the
recent acknowledgement of his ability
by the authorities is but another evidence of the high regard in which
he is held by the various commands.
Captain Ball's young brother Cyril
has recently joined the R. F. C. —
Montreal Star.

EUROPEAN EVENTS
COM. T. H. HOWARD
Chief  of  Staff Salvation  Army
Commissioner Howard, second in
command of the Salvation Army
throughout the world, is a man of intensely earnest character.
The Commissioner became a Salvationist in 1881, and in May of the
same year he became Vice-Principal
of the first Training Home. In 1882
he went to the then newly acquired
Training Home at Clapton, with the
rank of Major. His first territorial
command was Australia, whence he
returned to Great Britain in 1890. He
had charge of the Training College
until he was appointed to take charge
of the Army's Field operations in
Great Britain. Was appointed Secretary for Foreign Affairs in 1896.
Later, after a three year term as
Commissioner for Training, he was,
in 1907, appointed Foreign Secretary.
In 1905 he instituted at Clapton the
weekly Central Holiness meetings,
which have attained world wide fame
and influence. He received his present
appointment in 1912.
The Congress held this week end in
Winnipeg, which Salvationists from
every part of the American continent
attended, was under his entire management and was in every feature a
great success. Capt. Cox, of Fernie,
attended the Congress.
The British government will turn
over to Chile five American built
submarines as compensation for the
delay in delivery of dreadnoughts
contracted for in England by the Chilean government.
The King has given twenty pounds
for a Church Army Hut at Windsor
for the Canadian Lumbermen's Battalion.
French soldiers at the front receive
an average of 4,000,000 letters, 10,000
money orders and 350,000 parcels
daily.
Ras Michael, father of the late Emperor of Abyssinia, has been taken
prisoner in a big battle 25 miles outside of the Capital, which resulted in
a complete victory for the New Government.
Lieut. Gen. Bryan T. Mahon, lately
in command of the western front in
Egypt, has succeeded Major General
Sir John Maxwell in command of the
forces in Ireland.
Fance has taken all steps necessary
and England is taking the matter into
serious consideration, for a tunnel under the English Channel. The plans
were outlined by M. Sartiaux, chief
engineer of the Nord Railway Co., of
Paris. The cost will be sixteen million
pounds, each country to adopt half the
expense. England and France are Allies and every day sees the peoples
of these countries fighting and dying
side by side. The tunnel will not only
have a district military usefulness but
after the war help to weld the two
countries still closer together
Capt. Drefus, who figured in French
history 22 years ago, in connection
with the secrets of the 120 gun, now
honorably restored to all his former
honors, is fighting for France against
the enemy who was mainly responsible for his downfall.

TRIBUTE TO CANADA
THE  LATEST  BULLET
At Sandy Hook proving grounds a
new armour-piercing bullet was tried
out recently with surprising results.
It is only .30 calibre but at 50 yards
it pierced a sheet of steel three-quarters of an inch thick.
Earl Curzon paid a glowing tribute
to Canada at a luncheon given to the
Duke of Devonshire in London, Eng.,
recently. He said:
"If there is any among the Dominions of the Crown that has established for itself the right to rank among
the great nations of the earth, it is
Canada. If there is any part of the
British Empire that is assured of a
dazzling and almost illimitable expansion in the future it is Canada.
If in this war there are any of our
fellow-subjects who in superlative
degree might be said to have shown
loyalty of loyal and bravery of brave,
those are our fellow subjects from
the Dominion."
HONOR TO THE TZAR
The British Ambassador to Russia
recently presented the Grand Cross

the Allies of the Russian navy.

PHILATELISTS' NATIONAL
WAR FUND
Members of the Junior Philatelic
Society, of London, England, are raising a large sum of money :n aid of
the Red Cross and St. John of Jerusalem Societies, those great organizations which are doing so much to alleviate the pain and distress of Britain's soldiers wounded in the war.
There are many philatelists in British
Columbia who can help the noble work
of the J. P. S. by sending in parcels
of good duplicates to be sold for the
above funds to the President, M. P.
Castle, Esq., M.V.O., 4 Southampton
Row, London, W.C. Stamps, collections, everything worth selling will be
welcomed. The aim of the committee
is not to collect a large sum of money
from a few individuals but to gain
the largest possible sum from the
whole philatelic community in the
British Empire.
ANIMALS UNDER FIRE
blem in the doubling, and in some
cases the trebling, of price of paper,
and in the absolute inability to contract in advance for supplies, than
they have ever had to face before.
The statements which have recently
appeared in the daily papers on the
subject do not at all exaggerate the
seriousness of the situation. — Manufacturers' Record.
HER HAT
The proverbial sphinx-like imper
turbility of cats is once again demon-|
strated by the fact that pussy is the
only quadruped known to face shells!
without a natural feeling of trepidation, says an English exchange.
Even after two years of devasta-
ing bombardment, Ypres, the dead
city of the Flanders plain, still boasts
a number of cats, which prowl and
flourish in this wilderness of calcined
debris. Horses are more human, inasmuch as they are afraid of shells,
but endeavor to show a bold front.
Dogs are the greatest cowards, and
the sound of a "Jack Johnson" sets
them running as fast as their legs
can carry them from the danger
zone. Perhaps, however, the most
unaffected of all natural life within
sound of the guns are larks and
sparrows. These birds treat a hurricane fire with aloofness and contempt, singing and chirping through
all the din as if the uproar were but
an uninvited accompaniment to their
song.
PAPER SITUATION IS SERIOUS
The price of paper, which ha3 advanced from 100 to 300 per cent or
more over prices prevailing a year
ago, seriously threatens the life of a
large number of publications throughout the country and greatly lessens
the profits of others.
The newspapers, from the largest
dailies to the smallest weeklies, have
been bearing the burden which to
many publications will mean complete
destruction and to many others the
wiping out of all profit.
Had the newspapers of the country
been as prompt to defend their own
interests as they have the interests
of others, they, too, would, before
this, have undertaken to save themselves by an advance in subscription
price and in advertis ing rates. Hundreds of the smaller weeklies, including the religious papers, which have
but a very narrow margin between
loss and profit, will, we fear, suffer
most disastrously, unless the public
promptly recognizes the situation and
accepts an advance in subscription
and in advertising rates, and thus
save the situation.
The day laborer, the mechanic, the
farmer and nearly all business interests, manufacturing and mercantile, under the acitvity of tho times,
are showing larger earnings than for
years. But the newspapers as a whole
are meeting a mora perplexing   pro-
Some men complain the expense of a
wife
Is the one thing   that wearies   and
crushes their life,
But a husband we know in this high
Altitude,
Whose heart swells with pride   and
extreme gratitude
To the Gods for sending him one   so
kind
With a comely form and a cultured
mind.
Taking a shape that is crudely designed,
She produces a hat so sweetly refined
By deftly blending a ribbon of pink
With the wing of a grouse, and before
you can think
You have something whose value
cannot be known
The secret is this, "It is all of her
own." —E. H. L.
SECOND WHIST DRIVE
A most successful whist drive was
held in the Recreation Room last
Thursday night. There were 35 players present. The winners were: First
prize, Mrs. Sergt. Carter; first prize,
Corpl. Gordon Ross; booby prize, Miss
James.
HAMAR   GREENWOOD'S   WIT
Sir Hamar Greenwood, Bart., the
Whitby, Ont., boy who is now a distinguished member of the British
house of commons, and is paying a
visit to Canada, owes much of his
success to the gift of rapid thought
and repartee, which he cultivated in
early youth by assiduous devotion to
the debating societies at Toronto
university. During one of his parliamentary campaigns in England he
was orating on the folly of purchasing foreign made goods; but his audience happened to contain a very
sharp-eyed British shoemaker. "Why
do you wear American boots, then?"
demanded the shoemaker. "Because
my feet were made in America," was
the instant retort, and the laugh was
effectually turned upon the questioner.—Financial Times.
TRAIL BOYS IN KHAKI
J. P. Schofield, James McKay and
T. D. Guernsey, of the 196th Batt.,
have left Camp Hughes for overseas.
A. B. McNaughton, brother of Dr.
McNaughton, of Trail, is now in No.
3 hospital, London.
Herb. Smith, formerly president of
the Trail Mill and Smertermen's Union, who enlisted a short time ago
with the engineers, is now in Montreal
expecting to go to the front soon.
Copr. Sinclair Marlatt, reported as
wounded last week, is now in an hospital at Stoke-on-Trent, Eeng., seriously injured, according to cable received this week by G. H. Marlatt, his
father.
Lance Corp. Truswell, wounded in
the foot two weeks ago, writes his
mother that he will be back in the
trenches by the time she received the
letter.
Thos. Corbett has three sons at the
front, and they have had an unusual
experience. They went to England at
different times and in different units,
but saw each other there. Then they
were sent to Belgium in different units and at different times, and again
saw each other. Finally they were
transferred to France at different
times and in different units, and are
able to see each other occasionally.
Thus far none of them have been
wounded.

HITS SCREEN WITH
NEW  GOWN   EVERY
TWO HUNDRED FEET
What mere man can attempt to describe a woman's gown? He can only
look upon creations of the costumier
with a sort of rapt wonder, and as
much intelligent description on the
end of his tongue as that maintained
in vacuo by the late dod-bird. That is
how mere man feels in looking at
the strange and wonderful gowns of
Dorothy Gish in her latest photoplay
vehicle, "Susan Rocks the Boat."
With every new scene in this stirring
picture, there is Dorothy with a new
specimen of Dame Fashion's art.
Mere man wishes he could tell
something about one gown that sticks
in his memory more than any of the
others; but he can't. Dorothy certainly did look queer in it. The studio representative declares she wore it to
emphasize her being out of place, in
her character as a girl withoodles of
money and a society education, among
the gangsters in a slum district where
the film was taken. She surely made
her point. Mere man is going back to
see the picture a fourth time to hand
himself another chortle of glee.
It has a hat like the one Nellie
wore, without the bird to make saucy
remarks. It has tight waist and skirt
(or are they both in one garment ?)
like those worn in the good old post-
bellum days in the reaction against
hoops, with a little sort of epaulette
on each shoulder like the last puff of
a glass-blower. But when Dorothy
turns around—!
Have you ever seen the one-man top
folded up like a package of soda
crackers on the back of a Japanese
kimona ? Well, that's it, only more so
for Dorothy. It's a bear!

again.

cosier every day.
That Pte. Teddy English looks like
a general in his uniform.
That Regimental Q. M. S. Lambkin
is again on duty.
That Pte. Wainwright is out of the
hospital.
That the new card tables in the
recreation  room   are   most  convenient.
That Lt. and Mrs. Dunbar Abbott
paid a visit to Gateway, B.C., this
week.
That at last glass for many broken
panes has arrived. Many panes are
cured.
That Mrs. J. Wilson has gone to
Calgary to join her husband, whose
regiment leaves shortly for the front.
That Pte. Corrigan went to Fernie
to meet several relations back from
the front.
That Lance Corp. Sanders spent
several days in Fernie on canteen
business.
That Pte. Lockyear Wray has returned from a visit home, on sick
leave.
That the singing, warbling, whistling and even humming of Pte. Ccan-
lon is a thing of the past.
That Miss Connors of Fernie has
been visiting her brother, Pte. Connors and family.
That the new shower bath at the
barracks is ready and so are the
icicles.
That no one will miss Pte. J. D.
Perry, the issuer of rations, more
than the issuer of this issue.
That the new stove upstairs in the
barracks cannot smoke, having no
pipe.
That the cook at the Officers Mess
scalded himself badly and had to go
to the hospital.
That the new score cards printed by
the Fernie Free Press for the Camp
Whist Club are an excellent example
of what the Free Press job department can do.
That the lecture Monday night by
Lieut. H. Wallace on "How To Care
For Arms," was well attended and
most instructive,
That it makes a fellow feel pretty
small to have to be told when to get
a hair cut. It would make some
privates wonder which hair to cut.
That everyone should attend
Morrissey Children's Fete in aid of
the Belgian children, on Friday
afternoon.
That Corpl. Oughton is just the
man to be chairman of the Skating
Rink committee. The Camp expects
great things of that skating rink and
Corpl. Oughton.
That the water pipes at Lt. Mott's
apartments and the water pipes at
Sergt. Lane's diggings are closely related to the water pipes in the C.A.
S.C., and all are frozen up and a
nuisance.
That Sergt. Major Minton rode
"Dolly" to Elko in the middle of the
night (Sunday last) and was delighted to see the warm glow of a light
after being nearly frozen in the saddle.
That the hobo rarm nelp who shuffled his way to the border was very
like Sergt. Cecil Minton and in only
one particular—his smile.
That a walking bacon family, mamma and six little 'uns, arrived as guests
of the barracks on Saturday in charge
of Pte. Boardman. They are as hungry as hogs and look   appetizing.
That Mr. Tom Pren'ice kindly donated a goodly bunch of magazines
and papers to the reading room.

SERGT. LANE IN THE CHAIR
The general meeting of the Recreation Room Committee took place at
7 p.m. Saturday with 25 present.
After the adoption of the minuutes of
the previous meeting, the proposal for
a Camp Skating Rink met with general approval. The site chosen is the
garden next to the barracks (with the
O.C. Major C. AE. Shaw's kind permission). Corpl. T. B. Oughton was
elected chairman of the Skating Rink
Committee, with Sergt. E. H. Lane,
Corpl. McPherson, Privates Clarke,
Smith and Addison to assist him.
Linton Bros., Calgary, replied to the
inquiry of the Secretary as to the
price of dominoes, and it was left
with the Secretary to secure them. It
was also unanimously decided to subscribe for an additional copy of the
Nelson Daily News for the Recreation Room. Three more members were
added to the Whist Drive Committee.
The meeting closed with a hearty vote
of thanks to Sergt. Lane.

The Board of Superintendents of

of the paper supply and agreed that
if the situation became much worse
it would be necessary to return to
old-fashioned writing material. Contracts made last fall, however, protect the supply for the present year.

E. K. Stewart, Manager of the
Trites-Wood Co., has purchased the
house of W. M. Walker, late manager
of P. Burns Co. The sale was made
by M. A. Kastner, insurance agent of
Fernie.
The Rev. Mr. Hob.son is the new residential Presbyterian minister at
Waldo. His wife is a sister of Pte.
Hanson, 54th Batt. C. E. F., now in
France.
What most "movie fans" like best is
a sensational film filled with baffling
mystery and a story that holds the
attention at a high pitch of keen interest to the end. "The Wrong Door"
is exactly this kind of a film and will
be shown at the Orpheum theatre on
Monday and Tuesday. Carter DeHaven and his wife, Parker Flora De
Haven, play the leading roles and to
miss this film would be a misfortune
to anyone who is really anxious to
see the greatest feature of the season.
It is mentioned
That Pte. Jim Brown, C.A.S.C, is
off to join an overseas corps and
leaves for Vancouver today. He has
made a host of friends in Morrissey
Camp who are sorry to see him go.
That the Guards are as keen to
capture escapers as the latter are
keen   to escape capture.
That to get an early success it is
imperative to get up early.
For the information of those who
would like to communicate with
The Salvation Army Chaplains, the
names and addresses are as follows:
Captain R. Penfold, care of the
Senior Chaplain, Boulogne-sur-Mer,
France.
Captain C. B. Robinson, 30th Reserve Battalion, Napier Barracks,
Shorneliffe, England.
Captain Steele, 30th Reserve Battalion, C. E. F., West Sandling
Camp, Kent, England.
Ensign Oake, Gresley Park, Port
Arthur, Ontario.
Captain C. Kimmins, Field Post
Office, Camp Borden, Ontario.
Hon. Captain Carroll (S.A. Chaplain), 51st Battalion, Bramshott,
Hants, England.
Captain Ainslie, Camp Hughes,
Manitoba.
Adjutant Gosling, Sarcee Military
Camp, Calgary, Alberta.
These Chaplains will be glad to be
of any service possible to soldiers at
the front or at Concentration Camps,
or to the friends who are interested in
the men who are with His Majesty's
Forces. If anyone having relations or
friends in the hospitals will communicate with the Chaplains, they will
be glad to visit them. Please give
full name, regimental number, battalion, and as many other particulars as
possible.
The soldier in the train was dilating on his changed life. "They took
me from my home," he said, "and put
me in barracks; they took away my
clothes and put me in khaki; they
took away my name and made me
NO. 575; they took me to church
where I'd never been before, and
they made me listen to a sermon for
forty minutes."
"Then the parson said, 'No. 575,
Art thou weary, art thou languid?'
and I got seven days' C.B. for giving
him a civil answer.        "

Opportuunity is really the application  of knowledge to cej^tin  condi
tions.
Private Jones was summoned to
appear before his captain.
"Jones," said the officer, frowning
darkly, "this gentleman complains
that you have killed his dog."
"A dastardly trick," interrupted the
owner of the dog, "to kill a defenceless animal that would harm no noe!"
"Not much defenceless about him,"
chimed in the private heatedly. "He
bit freely into my leg, so I ran my
bayonet into him."
"Nonsense!" answered the owner
angrily. "He was a docile creature.
Why did you not defend your self
with the butt of your rifle?"
"Why didn't he bite me with his
tail," asked Private Jones, with spirit.
Give us a keen sense of appreciation of things that have, do and will
happen without our volition and we
will the better appreciate how easy
it is to do without fancied betterments that never have, do not and
never will happen.

THE ROSEBUD
Among the rosebuds chose I one
So fair, that of the remnant none
Might I appraise so well as it,
When I assessed it in my wit.
So well was it illumined
So richly hued with color red
That Nature none could make more
fair;
And leaves it had about four pair. . .
The stalk was like a ruush, full light,
And thereon stood the bud upright
That down it bowed on neither side.
The pleasant scent had spread so wide
The place was all with balm replete.
—Chaucer.
One of the chief joys of working
for a living is not pay day as much
as the day we are able to pay everything we owe.
Kindness is more contagious than
cruelty.
