Frank Brown  who was quite young andtreach  ed France was raised near Huntingdon, and is now an invalid.  District. S. S.  At   MiXi'AW   09)  Convention JI eld  Friday March 31  S.  The Fraser Valley District S.  Association held their annual  convention in tho hall at Hatzic  on March IJlsL. Both the afternoon and evening sessions were  well, attended.  This organization was inaugurated last year and the first  meeting was held in Mission  City. The organization was promoted by the 13. C. Sunday S.  Association and comprises the  denominational S. Schools of  the territory from Pitt Meadows  to Agassiz and includes Abbotsford 'and Clayburn/ The aim of  the Association is to stimulate  greater interest in Sunday S.  work and to'promote more efficiency in all branches connected  with the teaching of the pupil.  The principal speaker at  the Hatzic meeting was the Rev  I. W.; Williamson, ^secretary of  the B. C. S. S. A., through whose  efforts the re-organization of S.  Schools has become possible.  Mr. Williamson has severed his  connection with the B. C. S. S.  A", and will leave for Nova Scotia to enter a larger field and  better pastures. The vacancy  thus left will be hard to fill and  although Mr. 'Williamson's decision is much,regretted by B; C  S. S. workers, all wish him Godspeed and good luck, and our  loss will be the Easterner's gain  The following is the program  of the meeting at Hatzic:  . President's Address, J. ��������� A.  Barr; "Can a Rural School Use  Modern Methods" I. W Williamson; Elementary Work by Mrs.  Wm. Manson; "How to Make  the Programme Interesting" by  E. S. Learn, Vancouver; "The  Bible Class in Relation to the  Sunday School"- by Rev. W. R.  Hughes; "Canadian Standard  Efficiency Tests for Teen Age  Pupils" by I. W. Williamson;  Supper was then provided by  the Hatzic People; Business  Session, reports and election of  Officers; Opening Exercises by  the New President;- "Discipline  in the School" by D. M. Moore  Mission City; Special Music  and Offering; Conference by I.  W. Williamson.  The Rev.

' ���������  ".-' Did anyone tell you  1 have got a job as overseer in   Arsenal?    1 have  been here since the middle of  January, making cartridges to  kill Germans. We have to work  pretty hard, at present it is run  with two shifts, day and night  and Ave take it . week    about  the effect on the rest was excellent. They kept us an-hour and  a half in the dark one evening,  very tiresome. Of .course I  swear to the family that if-.there  is one safe spot from the Zepps  it is the arsenal. The pay is  pretty good, but, food costs a lot.  J.1 UK'IVE K1) OF PRODUCTION  Each'shift is twelve hours. This  last week I have been on the  night shift, going in at 7 p. m.  and coming home in the morning along with the land lady's  cat. I can only hope I don't  look as dissipated as he does  when we meet on the doorstep.  At present I am in charge of  seven,girls and their-machines,  for which we have also four  fitters. I am supposed to. keep  the girls in order, gauge the  cartridges and keep the scores.  The gauging is the most tiresome part, it has to-be constantly done; there are four things  to be gauged, and the manager  says each . machine should be  done at least once in' five min-j  utes. That, however, is a slight  exaggeration. The fitters complicate life a good deal, but so  far 1 have found them all pretty  decent. They change from one  shift to another every fortnight  so we don't always get the same  men.  Everyone has been . very  friendly and kind, and it makes  a great difference, when twelve  hours each day must be spent  there.,We get an hour's interval,  for dinner and half an hour for  tea. When I went first, the arsenal provided nothing but boiling water, and all the provisions for the day had to, be carried���������a fearful nuisance. But  now there is a very good canteen run be the Y. M. C. A.  You will guess-:there is not  much time for other things. My  landlady does my shopping for  me. I was lucky in getting  a room near the arsenal so have  no difficulty about trains. Some  Reed Cross Concert  A concert was given in the  Alexandria Hall last Tuesday  evening by Mr. Giroday and his  daughters before leaving for*, the  coast. Mr. A. Giroday who has  returned from the firing line  gave an address. A collection  was taken up which amounted  to $23. Mr. Gazley gave the hall  free except for the lights.

Zepps).  and are led to a place of comparative safety, with a "poison  helmet" thrust upon your reluctant fingers as the lights go  out. 1 own I was much more  alarmed at the prespect of donning the helmet than at the  prospect of Zeppelins! It was a  strange smelling object and even in the dark no one seemed  inclined to put one on. , The  girls on the whole behaved  well, though of course there  was a certain amount of hysterics. The second time it happened the lady superintendent  was there (a singularly capable  woman), and she slapped one  girl who was beginning to fuss;  It must be plain to the most  obtuse and unreasoning mind  that twenty-four or twenty-five  million of men cannot be withdrawn even from the swarming  population of Europe without  effecting a huge reduction in  the produce of labour and of the  soil. Women may in a measure  supply the places of men, but  it must be remembered that women have also their sphere in  the economics of life. Therefore  in taking them to the land they  are being taken, in the main,  from other employment: Consequently, if for every man who  goes to light there was a, woman to, take his place in agriculture or other industry there  would still be a deficiency not  only in labor but in production.  At the present time 400,000 women are being called for to take  the place of 250,000 British sol-  (diers recruited from farm work  Hence it is clear that no matter what steps may be, taken  either during the war .or after  the war, there must.be.an enormous shortage of the require  ments across the Atlantic for  many years tp come. And that  shortage for a period subsequent to the declaration of  peace will be as keenly as any  time during the gigantic struggle. With the normal scramble  for existence resumed there will  be less immediate government  control���������in other words there  will ��������� be less systematic regulation of supplies. To meet the  demands that must succeed extra consumption, tremendously  less production and immensely  greater wastage, there will be  abundant use, not for one year's  bountiful crops, but for similar  blessings during a score of successive years. Where and how  can this assured demand be met  There is but one answer to the  dual question���������by the undevast-  ed countries and by redoubled  efforts at production in those  countries.  That Canada is not the only  country that has net had its resources in large part exhausted  or destroyed, is true; but there  is plenty of reason to believe  that the nations of Europe not  engaged in the war, have been  drawn upon to the utmost by  those so engaged; hence when  the time conies all eyes will be  turned from east to west for  succour. Canada, being the near  est to the great centre of de-  from sentimental reasons, be  niand, will, of necessity, apart  the first looked to and will  have the greatest opportunity.  The bogey of released Russian  harvests have been on parade  since the war commenced, but  Russia, with  twelve or fifteen  million men called    to    arms.,  largely of the peasant class, lias  suffered and is suffering, like  the rest.    ' She, too, will need  reo rganizing, rejuvenating and,  regenerating.      Hence,   for   a  few months after the outbreak  of hostilities, there may have  been something to be expected  from the release of, stores    of  wheat and other grain from O-  dessa and other Black Sea ports  there is nothing available now  and there may be little in the  next,, decade.    Hence, Canada's  role is plain���������to go on producing,  to go .on garnering, and  storing, if necessary, in the sure  and certain hope of ultimate  profit and   prosperity.     There,  never was a time, and probably  never will be    another    time,  when we were more urgently,  called upon to produce; in    increased quantities, not alone all  articles of food, but every articles that enters into the    industrial life of peoples.  Rev.: Mr.. Reid has, ..gone    to  Victoria to attend a meeting of  the  Synod  and   made  definite  arrangements for the supply of  the Presbyterian church    here.  The field extends from Gifford  to Warwhoop on the B. C. E. R  east and west,  and  from  the  Fraser river to the Yale road  north and south. There was   a  good attendance  at the  Communion service in the church'  here on Sabbath 2nd hist, when  the Rev. Alexander Dunn, D. D.  from .New Westminster preached a stirring sermon on "The  Constraining Love of Christ,"  2 Cor. 5, 14.  Mr. John Ball and family  have moved to Chilliwack. Mr.  Christie has moved to Mr. Ball's  place.  Mrs. Farber and the children  are to spend the summer with,  Mrs. Farber's parents at Wisconsin, U. S. A., Messrs Farber  and Lappe of the Fir Tree Lumber Co., are logging on the  Cogalan and White bush. Lt  is expected this will finish the  work at this saw mill which  has given employment to quite  a number of men i;t this district. Messrs Farber and La;-.pe  employ white labor and take an  interest in the welfare of their  employees who greatly appreciate this.  Mrs. Salt Entertains  A very pleasant evening was  spent at the home of Mr. and  Mrs. A. C. Salt last Wednesday  evening in honor of her brother  Pte. Jack Parton of 131st. Everyone played cards, then partook of the dainty lunch prepared by the hostess. Games  and dancing were then enjoyed.  Among those present were:  Mrs. W/W. Green, Miss Dorothy and Forence Parton, Miss  Jean Alanson, Miss Jeannie Anderson, Miss Florence and  Christina McPhee, and Messrs E  Weir, Walker Wallace, Man-  lius Zeigler, Jack Parton, Lorn  McPhee and Frank Parton.  ^^t^^^^^^^M^^^^&^^^^^^^^mm {awMmammarmmmaaaisa  I'HmilMIMTOflU  masssm  THE ABBOTSFORD POST, ABBOTSFORD,.

Activity in Canada  An important t'eauture offhe  Red Cross work arethe hospital visitors who bring the wounded into personal touch with the Society, and collect information that serves considerably to alleviate the anxiety of relatives. Recently Mr.' Caspar Clarke,  of East 'Toronto,after reading inthe  casualty lists, that his brother was  wounded, cabled tothe Red Cross  in London, and in two clays received  full particulars as to the nature of the  wound. This information has been  gathered by a Canadian Red Cress  visitor in Boulogne. This staff of  visitors now numbers 400.  The Duchess of Connaught- Canadian Red Cross hospital at Cliveden  is constantly winning golden opinions for its efficiency and perfect organization, ft is .considered a model  hospital and,a great tribute to Canadian Red Cross effort.  Taking all departments into consideration the Canadian Red Cross  is doing admirable work abroad. The  only limit to the good it can accomplish is the limit of contributions  from Canada. Every increase of Red  Cross effort in Canada gives the Red  Cross so much power to ameliorate  the unhappy lot of Canada's wounded  and prisoners.

The activity ofthc Canadian Red  Cross in England ana at the front is  closely connected with the proseper-  ity of the Society in Canada. Any  diminution of Red Cross enterprise  on this side of the wafer would mean  inevitably an increase in the suffering ofthe wounded.  The Red Cross movement in Canada however is advancing like a great  tidal wave Almost every branch each  month repoorts new high records  ing goods and money. The total of  supplies passing throughthc shipping-  departments ih Toronto, St. John and  Halifax   is   constantly   increasing.  tn consequence of this the Canadian Red Cross abroad is able to report a steady expansion of the scope  of its activity. It is now supplying  comforts to Canadian . wounded in  71 hospitals in tlie Shorncliffc area.  From its Boulogne warehouse it. issues supplies to four Canadian General hospitals, four Canadian Field  ambulances and five Canadian Stationary hospitals in France. In addition, there is Canadian Red Cross  hospital, .to which five motor ambulances are attached at. St. Cloud near  Paris. .

Gain or  no gain tlie course before the farmers of Canada is as clear as it was  ' last year���������they must produce abundantly in order io meet thc demands'  that may be made and I believe this to be especially true in regard to '  live stock, thc world's supply of which must be particularly affected,in  this vast struggle'. Stress and strain may yet be in store lor us all  before this tragic conflict is over,'but not one of us doubts the issue,  and Canadians will do their duty in thc highest sense of that 'great  word."���������HON. MARTIN HUlUtttLL, Minister of Agpiendturc.  fODERN war is made by resources, by money, by foodstuffs, ns  i'-t- well as by men and by munitions. While waris our first, business, it is the imperative duty of every man in Canada to produce all  that he can, to work doubly hard while, our soldiers are in the trenches,  in order that the resources of thc country may not only be conserved, but  ' increased, for the great sLruggle that lies before us.
