JAMFS MAY FUND
SHOWS GRADUAL
RISE FOR WEEK
This week a number of further
subscriptions for the James May
Memorial Fund were received.
For the benefit of those who do
not know the purpose of the
fund, it may be said that, at the
instance of requests from the
friends and acquaintances of
James Jasper May, pioneer of
pioneers in the Cariboo and Omineca, who died at Hazelton last
December,The Miner will receive
subscriptions, limited to one dollar, for the purpose of erecting a
suitable headstone to mark the
last resting place of the departed
veteran, which today is a mere
mound of earth, undistinguished
among other such mounds.
We cannot emphasize too deeply the duty we owe to Jim May.
He spent the best years of his
life, from those of early manhood until advancing age compelled him to quit the trail, in
blazing! the way for civilization.
We must preserve the memory
of his achievements.   Therefore,
Raised Nice Amount
As the result of the tag day
held on Thursday, condected by
the local branch of the Red Cross
Society, the sum of $44.50 was
realized for the funds of the
branch. The collectors were:
Mrs. Anderson, Miss Cunningham, Miss Goddard, Mrs. Hogan,
Mrs. Morkill, Mrs. Sealy, Miss
Wattie.
These tag days, which are considered by the executive of the
branch to be the most effective
means of enabling everyone to
contribute, will be held on the
2nd of each month, and when it
falls on a Sunday or holiday the
next day will be observed as tag
day.
A number of citizens could be
seen this afternoon gazing intently at the eclipse of the sun by

ORGANIZING FOR
ANNUAL PICNIC
Committees Appointed to Arrange
For July I���Much Enthusiasm Shown
A meeting of the Red Cross
was held in St. Andrew's Hall on
Monday, when the following
were elected as chairmen of the
various committes to take charge
of the arrangements for the annual picnic in Hospital Park on
July 1:
Collection Committee���Mrs. W.
W. Anderson.
Sports and Sideshows Committee���R. J. Rock.
Grounds Committee���Jas. Latham.
Decorations Committee���J. F.
Maguire.
Refreshment Booths Committee���Mrs. J. C. K. Sealy; Mrs.
Newick.
Lunch Committee���Mrs. H. C.
Wrinch.
The sports committee has already commenced active work,
and has drawn up a comprehensive program of foot and novelty
races, and Indian horse races will
be featured. Baseball games
will be played, and arrangements
will be made for the grand dance
to be held in the evening. Cash
prizes will be awarded in all contests.
The success which has attended the previous picnics, bids fair
to be eclipsed this year, if the
enthusiasm being displayed locally is any criterion. Each year's
picnic has surpassed the previous
ones,both socially and financially,
and this year's, taking due regard to precedent.should surpass
anything of the kind ever held
in this district. The arrangements will all be made by capable
hands, ensuring the even flow of
the proceedings. A record attendance is confidently anticipated, if the weather man will do
his "bit" and smile benignly
upon us.
Among the improvements made
this year which should aid in the
running of the foot races is a new
100-yard track, which has been
prepared in the park.

Conservation of Wheat
Must be Continued
Says the Food
Controller
Ottawa, June 8:���Conservation
of wheat and the substitution of
other cereals on this continent so
as to supply great amounts to
countries overseas which are dependent upon us must be continued at least until the 1919 crop
situation is known. Such is the
effect of an announcement by H.
15. Thomson, chairman of the
Canada Food Board. He said:
"Although the world wheat crop
situation at the present time is
more promising than that of a
year ago, still considerable time
will elapse before crops are harvested. Even if the greatest expectations are realized, the fact
remains that the world wheat
resources are exhausted.

Tomorrow, June 9,  Rev.   R.
C. Scott will preach at 7:30 p. m.
on   the  subject :   "Conference
Echoes."
All are cordially invited.

of the prettiest sights locally is

RY it just once! Ask your friend to let you "pilot" his
car on an open stretch. You'll like it, and will be surprised how easily the Ford is handled and driven.
It you have never felt the thrill of driving your own car,
there is something good in store for you. It is vastly
different from just riding���being a passenger. And especially so if you drive a Ford.
Young hoys, girls, women and even grandfathers���thousands of them���are driving Ford cars and enjoying it. A
Ford stops and starts in traliic with exceptional ease and
smoothness, while on country roads and hills its strength and
power show to advantage.
Buy a Ford and you will w<mt to be behind "the wheel"
constantly.

mileage
20 to 25 miles to a gallon of
gasoline is a frequent occurrence with the Ford car. One
man (name on request) reports
an average of 33 miles per gallon for 20,000 miles. Surely
this is a record that few, if
any other makes of cars, ever
equalled.
It demonstrates the economy
of owning and driving a Ford.
You can  average 1000 miles
more travel on Ford-size tires.
The saving on oil and repairs is proportionately large.   The
name   "Ford" stands for lowest coit and greatest service.
