On Tuesday'evening the Victor  Theatre was filled to its fullest cap  acity and on Wednesday there was  hardly standing room, and there is  little doubt but that if the entertainment were again repeated that there  would be a full house, so popular has  the. programme become in Mission  City.

The selections     from  "The  ! Country  Girl,"  was   beautifully  rendered.     Miss   Grace  Portsmouth     in  "Dance   for   Jack",   "Partners"   and  "Come down to Devonshire," was excellent, and received encores for each  number. She     certainly    looked  charming in her beautiful dress,  and the chorus work was very good,  especially the dances.  Thelma Stokes, sang very nicely 'In  the Land of Love." Her dress was  grand. Delia Cook made a success from her song "Dreaming" her  dress was a Aviimer. Miss E. Jackson sang in fine style and good voice  "Jack's the Boys for Work." The  most pleasing item was little Jessie  Elliot in her "Toy Monkey," she got  a tremendous reception, and she deserved it. Also her song "Pretty  Baby" was O. K. and the dance very  effective. j  Mary Giles, as   an    Irish    Colleen |  sang "it's the Irish in Your Eyes,"  and got what she surely deserved a  school.

They were made of    crepe    paper  trimmed  with  flowers,  with the exception of the dresses worn    in    the  "Minuet" which were of rose-colored j  muslin.

A. BATES,       ,    -       - Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY JUNE S, 19.17'  FIRM ALWAYS  DAJVGtiKOUS  It needs no argument to demonstrate that fire itself, once  started, carries with it serious possibilities, of destruction. It  makes-no difference whether the flame Is at,the end'of a match  or cigar or iira lamp or lantern, or stove or smoker's pipe���������fire  is always dangerous and should never be left unguarded. This  is one feature of'fire prevention which is of great importance  and requires constant care.���������Fire Facts.  NO TIME TO LOSE  People are pretty good people,  Taking them;all in all!  WASTK I'AI'KR ..  As a consequence of war conditions there has been a great  shortage in  paper stocks, and children  and  others,are being  urged to collect waste paper' with a view (o its being   sold   to  raise money for patriotic purposes.    A word of warning may be  proper;    Accumulations of paper not properly guarded are dangerous; a pile of paper is always ready for some accident, such  as contact with hot ashes, a match on the floor where it may be  stepped oh and ignited, a match head breaking off, a spark from  a furnace or stove, or a cigarette or cigar or pipe ashes carelessly thrown down, and in such,a pile fire is at once serious and  spreads rapidly.    Unless care is  taken  other rubbish  may be  mixed with and covered up by the,paper, and    the    conditions  favorable to spontaneous ignition.    By all means collect waste  paper; inculate economy and secure funds for good purposes;  but school trustees or teachers and others directing   the   work  should see that the paper is stored where it will be safe from accidents such as above referred to.    No paper should be allowed  to lie scattered on floors.    No loosely constructed piles should  be permitted.    The accumulation should be baled up daily and  got rid of as quickly as possible.    Metal containers should be  provided for all paper that cannot be bailed.    It would take a  great deal of waste paper to pay for a school or church building,  to say nothing of the clanger of the loss of life. Chiefs of fire departments may well take the matter up and bring it directly before school and church authorities, and see for themselves that  this hazard is being safeguarded. <���������  If, in addition to paper, rags are being collected they should  not be stored in school or church buildings, under any cirum-  stances. A fire recently started in a school in Lansing, Michigan, from spontaneous ignition of waste material stored in packing-cases  CLEAJf UP  Spring house-cleaning is a time-honored custom. The desire  is that our homes shali be bright and healthy.    For the same  reason cities, towns and villages and   business   premises   need  .cleaning up.    We yhould, however, go further and clean up also  ,  with a view to safety from lire, and all fire-breeding conditions  should be banished.    Look around your city or town.    Can anything be done to improve it from a fire-prevention stand-point?  Are there, in the vicinity of busness blocks,    no    tumble-down  buildings which are open to every tramp?    All vcant buildings  should be closed up if possible, or if too dilapitated for that they  should be removed entirely.    They are a menace and may at any  time start a conflagration.    Are   there no    accumulations    of  crates, boxes, and barrels piled against the rear walls of business  premises or piled in the back yards to attract waste paper blown  about by the wind, and sparks blown from chimneys on windy  days in the dry season.    In any case such crates will never be  used again for packing purposes or for any other purpose, except  kindling, and should be broken up and piled where they can do  no harm.  Look around your store. Have you empty boxes on your  shelves? They are a great assistance in spreading fire. Have  you cleaned out the cellar since the furnace has been discontinued? Is it littered with crates, chips, and cartons and other  useless things, or are you allowing it to be used for the accumulation of such things because the furnace is out? Some night  after you or some of your employees have been down, with a  . match or while smoking, to look for something you will wonder  how a fire happened. A fire caused by your carelessness may  not be confined to your own building; it may start a conflagration. v ���������       ^-������:*,;j.r':-i^S^  Look around your home. Have you house-cleaned and removed all sorts of combustibles odds and ends to the attic or cellar? Is the attic stored with broken furniture, sofa stuffing, old  illustrated papers, or boxes with packing material or tisue paper  in them? Or have you some of these things in dark closets where  you sometimes go with a match? Is it probable that you will  ever make use of them and will not your home be cleaner and  safer without them? Are the shavings and chips left by the  carpenters when you last made repairs still under the house a-  long with the waste paper which lias blown under there?  When you clean up get rid of the rubbish. A woman recently swept up her celllar and left the sweepings in a pile near  the cellar door to be removed some clay. There was a fire in  the pile within twenty-four, hours. Whatever the cause the pile  was a convenient starting-place for a fire.  Many places on this continent will have a 'clean-up week'  this spring. In such places public-spirited citizens and the  muncipal/authorities co-operate. Everybody encourages everybody else to clean up, and the city authorities make necessary  arrangements to remove the rubbish promptly,- and after the  clean up the fire chief should make an inspection of public and  business premises to see that the work has been done effectively.  In this way many fires will be prevented from starting and fire-  breeding conditions will be removed. Don't be discouraged because your careless neighbor is slow to do his part. Public opinion will move him in the end, and he wil probably be interested  in seeing that you do your part. More fires are due to carelessness and indifference than any one supposes who does not make  a study of causes of fires.  If you have never had a 'clean-up week' in your town why  not start now?���������Ex.  Not a-day should ho lost in destroying every collection ot stagnant  water in the vicinity of inhabited  houses. Open drains,'gutters, rain  barrels, cesspools, cisterns, ponds���������  all of these are breeding! places for  mosquitoes. Where' the water cannot be removed entirely, pour kerosene on it. .'The living .boats composed of mosquito eggs cannot survive under a flim of oil.    '  Mere comfort should be a sufficient incentive for everybody to join  in Avar against mosquitoes, but the  knowledge that a very common species, anopheles, which love houses  and human blood, is'the carrier of  germ of .malaria, while another species, stegomia, transmits yellow fever, makes it the public duty to exterminate them. And they can be 'ox-  terminated; that fact has been proven over and over again.  Three Principal Classes''  . The New York health department  groups   mosquitoes   into   throe   principal classes, although at least forty  species   arc   known.    These   classes  are:   (1); Swamp and woods mosquitoes;   (2)     salt-marsh    mosquitoes;  (3)   domestic or rain-barrel  mosquitoes.    They are all enemies of mankind from the human viewpoint represent only tho spirit'of evil.    Those  that do, not spread disease cause suffering and annoyance, and    it   'cannot bo said for them, as if was  for  flics in some cases,.that they    have  at least a littic value as scavengers.  Water is necessary    to    them    for  brooding,   and   it   must   be  standing  Avater.     Some  persons     think     that  mosquitoes breed in grass, but    the  fact is that they only    hide    in    the  grass during the heated hours of the  day, and the damper the pjrass    the  better they like it.    Excessive sprinkling of IaAvns especially if the grass  is   long,  favors  mosquitoes,  both- by  offering them agreeable haunts, and,  where hollows exist,    by    producing  little shaded Avater-pools and muddy  spots in which they can breed.  First Phase of Wriggler  The first phase of    the    mosquito  easily recognizable to persons not en-  tomoligists  is the     "wriggler,"     an  acrobatic little beast,    of    repulsive  form  and appearance,    which    progresses through the water of a    cistern or rain barrel by a series of astonishing   jerks   and   summersaults,  very amusing to watch. This after a-  while turns into a "pupa," a kind cf  bag-like affair with a Avriggling tail,  more repulsive than before, and out  of the pupa at last emerges the winged insect, climbing out of its bladder  boat, and taking flight with a shrill  Avhoop,  its  keen lance ready  fo.-    a  maiden   thrust.    But    strangely     e-  nough the mosquito is not a bloodsucker primarily.    It    can    nourish  very Avell on a vegetable    diet,    and  countless  trillions    probably    never  taste  blood.    But one taste    is    e-  nough;  the mosquito is suited right  aAvay;  he does not have to learn to  like blood as boys have to learn    to  like tobacco, or some grown  people  learn to eat olives.  One of the most astonishing facts  about mosquitoes is their universal  distribution all over the earth. They  are found inside the Arctic Circle,  and have been encountered on the  Himalaya mountains at a height of  lo.OOO feet. Yet when met in  places Avhere it is certain that they  can never have had an opportunity  to learn the art they take to bloodsucking with enthusiasm, and without  preceptible aAvkwardness.   ,  There is one bit of advice given by  the Health Department specially  worth remembering: "Don't waste  time SAvatting mosquitoes; prevent  their breeding." In other words,  go where they live and finish them  before they come where you live and  finish you.  .WI* -NtS-HI). AIjL T1II0 OL!) HOYS.  ..(Tune: "When you wore a Tulip").

AND SAVE MONEY  y  THE POSSIBILITIES  OF THE TELEPHONE  There is an excellent instance in Vancouver of how a  suburban drug merchant built, up business by telephone.  Two morals adorn the tale. One, that such a possibility  is open to every shopkeeper; two, that with the telephone  in the house one never needs to travel? even as far as the  corner store. And the telephone is just as effective in  reaching outside .points. No matter where you want to go  the telephone will take you. No time wasted, no travelling expense.
