There are too many pi*_s&3»ds
in this province who howl at any
person who wishes to push things
along, they sit in the shade with
their mouths open, expecting
people to come along and drop
gold dollars in their mush tunnels. They will do nothing themselves and knock those who are
trying lo build things up.
There are "men" and "apologies for men." Which class do
you belong to ?
"My good man," said the
chronic meddler to the old Irishman who was building him a
chicken coop, "why don't you
stop drinking?"
"Sor," said Pat. "I havn.t
taken a drink in tin years."
"Oh, come off," sneered the
meddler, "you tell me that when
your nose is as red as fire?"
"Yis," said Pat. "Tis not the
dhrink thot makes my nose so
red. 'Tis blushing with pride
because it attends to its own
business."
At the Movies
On Sunday afternoon, in the
Moving Picture Hall (kindly lent
by Mr. Paul Santini) the Rev.
Robert Hughes of Vancouver,
will deliver a short lecture on,
"Did the Whale Swallow Jonah?"
being a review of some of the
Bible difficulties in the light of
modern thought.
The men of Lillooet, and in the
construction camps are very cordially invited to attend.
No Sermon and no Collection.
Mr. Hughes will be glad to
deal with questions sent up by
any in the audience as far as he
is a'»le.
The chair will be taken at 4.30
p.m. by Mr. P. B. Lewis of Lillooet.
The greater the support given
to the Lillooet Celebrations on
the 1st and 2nd of July the greater will be the Lillooet War Fund
benefit.
This is the outstanding feature
of this years Festival so far as
Lillooet is concerned.
For every $100 contributed to
the sports fund, $10 goes to the
war fund.
Energetic collectors in the persons of Mr, Wm. LaValle and
Mr. George Prosser are asing
every means to ensure a heavy
list of donations, and are already
being well received and supported.
The two days holiday will give
opportunity to larg« numbers a-
round to attend and the P.G.E.
Railway Company are arranging
for Special Rates to Lillooet.
Two brass bands will enliven
the proceedings, one from Pemberton, the other from the Fountain.
One most important feature
will be the judging of the Horse
races by that well known judge
en all racing tracks Mr. McQueen,
who will by his reputed ability
give confidence to those who take
part in these leading events.
The Lillooet citizens are determined to make this years meet a
record success.   Let it be so ! !

For Protection of the Forest
Lillooet War Fund
Congratulations
Little Joe Johnson, whose life
was despaired of on May 10th,
is about to leave the Lillooet
Hospital, to all intents and purposes a perfect euro.
An attack of pneumonia and
fever combined had brought the
little fellow to death's door, and
while his little sister Mary was
being conveyed to her last resting place (she having died of
fever after a brief illness) it
seemed a foregone conclusion
that little Joe would, soon follow
her across the "Great Divide."
But Dr. Christie, who, with Dr.
Asselstine ancl Nurse Whitehead.
had been unremitting in  efforts
to
f
snatch this cheery
ittie boy
rom an early death, made a
final effort after ad had been
done that seemed humanly possible for their patient.
At 2.30 a.m. a preliminary operation was performed and to
the surprise of all, Joe survived it
and in the forenoon of the same
day a further operation was performed, and though for days the
young life trembled in the balance
the turn finally came and today-
hearts are cheered through the
devotion and skill of the Doctors
and Nurse.
The committee of the Lillooet
War Fund announce that the collections for the Red Cross Society
now amount to $178.88.
They wish to thank Miss Reed
of Lillooet for the contribution
entered in the name of "'.lissNora
Christie for tbe sum of $6.50 proceeds from the sale of flags.
As the Red Cross Society are
asking for immediate funds to
carry on their noble work, the
committee wish to appeal to those
who have not yet donated to this
worthy eauee, to hand their subscriptions to Mr. Wm. Adams,
collector for the fund, or to Sec-
Treas, Le Mare, Provincial Forest
Office, so that a substrncial sum
may be formarded to the above
mentioned organization as soon
as possible.
The following is a list of the
Forest Rangers and Forest Guards
and their districts as announced
by the Forest Branch Fire-protection Department of the Lillooet district.
West
Fred Johnson, ranger in charge
R. Burkholder, guard Bridge riv'r
j A. Williams, guard upper ,,    ,,

East
J, K. McLean, ranger in charge
J. McKinley, guard  Clinton div.
M. Mawdsley,     .,    N. Bonapart
W, Boyd, guard LacLaHache div.
R. Hume, guard Alkali lake   ,,
Chilcotin District
O. J. Sangar, ranger in charge
J. A. Stewart, guard, Hanceville.
The forest rangers in charge
are all members of the permanent staff of the forest branch,
being experienced cruisers, and
timber men.
The forest guards are only engaged for the fire season and are
experienced in woodcraft and in
the handling of fire fighting tools
They are resident in their respective divisions and are required to know all the roads and trails
as well as the topography of their
districts.
The destruction wrought by
the ravages of forest fires has
greatly decreased during the past
few years, and it is anticipated
thin year, with the organization
of such an efficient force of fire
rangers that the damage will still
furtber decrease.
The splendid '•o-operation which
the officers of the department received from the general public is
very encouraging, as the vast
areas which have to be covered
by each individual officer, cannot
be efficiently controlled without
the aid of these public spirited
people who recognize the great
importance, of the work, undertaken by the department in the
protection of the greatest resource of the Province.
Volunteers   Depart
Two volunteers left Lillooet
this w«ak for Kamloops, they are
Clem Morgan and Allen Morgan,
although of the same name they
are not related. Clem is well-
known here, he having played
baseball for the locals during the
last two years. Allen is an old
soldier and has seen service.
Both the "boys" were employed
on the Pacific Great Eastern railway, and are in the pink of condition. Every good wish goes
with them in their endeavour to
do their utmost for freedom of
nations.
When reading war criticism it is
always advisable to find out, if
possible, the name and qualifications of the critic, before putting
much faith in the article. It is
usually the person who knows
nothing whatever about war that
has the most to say about it.
Some caustic comments are being printed in American papers,
concerning the resignation of Mr.
Bryan. The New York Times
says: "The place and time demands not a Bryan but a.statesmen of the ability and the stature
of ElihuRoot."
A young woman went, to a grocery store and asked the polite
clerk if he had some good cheese.
"Yes, indeed!" he replied. "I

"How is that?" he inquired.

It was at a ten and fifteen cent

"Ten or fifteen?" asked the

"Jist one," said the villager.
"I hain't got the fam'ly along."
A social evening was given last
Saturday evening by the local
engineering staff of the P.G.E.,
to their many friends, at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. D, Craig,
Cayoosh creek. The guests spent
a very pleasant evening, arriving
home in the wee small hours of
the morning.
Mail Order Craze
Retail merchants can do a
great deal in the way of curtailing the operations of the mail

Mail Order Craze
(From page one)
many rural newspapers will show
! how the small town publishers
are taking up the matter.    The
i following is from a Vernon, B.C.
j paper.
"It is worth while to stop and
| think seriously what this sending
of money to mail order concerns
mean locally. It means poorer
schools, poorer roads, higher taxes, unemployment. To buy cheap
things cheaper never did and
never will mean prosperity.
"There is involved in this thing
of sending money to large cities
for goods which can be purchased
from the home merchant, the
question of local prosperity. It is
a poor policy to tear down the
bubiness stability of the home
town in order to swell the prosperity of the large city.
"In the long run there can be
no gain to anybody in patronizing
foreign business concerns at the
expense of local concerns. If local merchants cannot get sufficient business to pay the expense of operation, it means that
smaller stocks will be carried
and that the range of selection
will be restricted. It means that
fewer clerks will be employed;
it means that, fewer houses will
be built or rented; it means that
the growth of the local town or
city will be retarded. This means
in the long run that the amount
of taxes which the rural districts
will ha"e to pay will be increased
or that the public highways and
other conveniences which make
for better things will be sacrificed.
"This thing of sending out
money in large volume which
should be spent at home always
strikes back some way or other.

away for her gowns; the board-
house keeper may send away for
her   gowns;  the boarding-house

keeper away for his needs. Then
comes the cry that revenues from
local taxation because of decreased business are not adequate to
meet expenses. School boards
are confronted with the necessity
of cutting salaries; the patrons
of the boarding house become
fewer; the sign 'for rent' is seen
conspieiously posted on buildings.
"The whole question of local
betterment is involved in this
foolish mail order craze. If a
community is foolish enough to
spend its money abroad which
should be spent at home, then
that community must satisfy itself with poorer schools, roads,
churches, theatres, nvan-koking
towns, everybody in debt, mortgages foreclosed and general
business depression.
*'If the people would cut out
the mail order nonsense for six
months, there would be a local
prosperity which would surprise
everybody. When ail the people
learn that their own community
is most worthy of consideration,
when they learn the folly of
building up great cities at the expense of Lheir own local towns,
then they can be called rational,
and not till then."
