The hall presented a gala appearance, with .many suitable decorations. The ladies had prepared an  eat and the tables looked very Inviting. ' The bugle all summoned  abundance of every good tiling iu  tho guests to the tables, between 80  and 100 sat down... Mr. Ovcrstall who  was master of ceremonies, bade our  soldiers welcome. After all had done  justice to the many good things, the  chairman gave a short address of  welcome to the returned soldiers, and  their brides (two of the Ridgedale  soldiers had brought bade brides  from overseas),'after "which he proposed the toast to "Our King." Tho  audience rose and sang the National  Anthem. .Mrs... Lloyd .Beharrel proposed the toast to "The "Brides"    to  ��������� which. Lieut Frank Machell responded on behalf of the rjrides. Mrs. j.

The citizens of  Ridgedale are very proud of Nurso  Page and to know that of* the few  who were chosen for overesas ser-  vie, as Red Cross Nurses, one should  be from Ridgedale.  As this was perhaps the last ga-  tnering of this kind Mrs. Hargitt on  behalf of Ridgedale Red Cross worker thanked the many friends in the  district who had so kindly helped  them, botli with their time and  "money, with the work. They had  Ijeen most generous and it had been  "very oncouraging, and rendered a  short account of the monies entrusted  them during the ps.3t five years.  Altogether   they   had     taken     in  ���������$1670.70.    Out of this sum they had  sent to  Vancouver Red  Cross  $fi00.  Had bought two beds for the military  annex at Westminster,   Hospital    at  $50 each.    Had spent for    material  $998.85; shipped one case of becULIig  to Halifax relief association 3  boxes  clothing and bedding to Vanouver relief association;  sent to Belgian relief.      Altogether     shipped     12,L2������  ^garments to Vancouver central depot  1,596 pairs of sox. It had been a very  great   pleasure  to   make   these  garments and, render this slight service  to our soldiers in return for the great  sacrifice  they  had   made   for   us.  .',  A  splendid   programme  had   been  prepared  by the ladies,  the opening  ���������selection being a vocal solo by Miss  Nerva Page; piano solo by Miss Alma  Hayton, A Sketch "You Would never  Have   Thought  It"   by   Miss   Miller,  Mrs. John Smith, Miss Maggie  Farr  and Miss Owen; vocal duet by Miss  Maggie and Claude Farr;  vocal aolo  by Miss Elizabeth Goodchild; Mandolin solo by Mr. F.

At the end of the programme Lieut  ���������Machell  on  behalf  of  the  Returned  Soldiers  tendered  a vote of  thanks  to the ladies and expressed their ap  preciation of the many kindnesses  shown them while they "-were overseas, for the many comforts they had  received while in the trenches," also  thanked them for the banquet given  in their honor. He said they had  many kindly thoughts towards the  ladies of lhe Ridgedale Red..Cross.  Tlie  gathering  closed   by'siinging,  "God Save the King."

There is no use  talking we all love the brig-lit  lights, and AbbotsCord iK-wi'th-  of !  out them; but the Board  Trad? has taken the matter up  and v/ill inquire into the cost  of an a: c light at the corner of  of Esse..dale and tlie street up  to the G.. N.R., or at the corner  where tlie old Commercial Hotel stood. Mr. C .Spring., a recent arrival in the town and intends to remain here in business will go fully into the matter of cost, etc., and report to  the Board at its next meeting.  A light there would mean a  of great many dollars to the people of the town. Once one light  has been turned on there will  be others.  . The cost is nothing when it is  spread around. What is a couple of dollars a year to a number of citizens for the purpose  oi advertising the town? We  know a neighboring town that  its well lighted streets 'have  meant sum dollars to in the last-  few years.. You know too how  you enjoy going to the picture  show.

CANADA'S FUTURE "  DEPENDS ON LOAN  itendy   ICmpIoymcnt   and   Prosperity  Unties  on, Victory   Loan.  .Canada's futuro prosperity depends  10 a great extent upon the success of  'nc- Victory Loan. No country can  ���������xi.si upon trade within'its own bo'un-  ij.rics Cana-la counts on Hie trade..  ,vith Great Britain and oilier .allied  .-.onnines to keep the llooc'l oi' good,  ���������inus in the country.  Tlie surplus products of the. Ta.rni  \ni\ ilie factory find their way across  the seas.   The revenue of the farmci  md   lhe  manufacturer  is  dependent  >n tliis trade relalionsliip being sus-  ���������alned.    The   employment   of   many  nands   depends   on   the   orders   that  ,-ome to the (inn.    The pay envelope  inlycomcs with steady employment.  Great   Britain  and   overseas  countries are still desirous of continuing  trade    relations,    but,-  overwhelmed  with   war   expenses,   they   must   be  given credits for lhe time'being.  Thc  farmer  and   lhe   manufacturer   must  be paid for their products and manufactured articles in cash.   Therefore,  Canada-must -finance the proposition  to keep the tide of commerce coming  this way.    But in order (o have lhe  money on hand to do this great thing,  Canada must borrow from her people.  Tho Victory  Loan offers  bonds lo  subscribers paying 5%   per,cent, interest.    The   guarantee   behind    the  bonds makes them an absolutely safe  investment.    Victory  Bonds  are  accepted as collateral at any bank, and  can easily  be turned  into  money at  a profit.    It is then to the interests  of  every  Canadian  to ��������� subscribe  for  all the Victory Bonds he can, for it  is profitable,', it is patriotic, and it is  necessary   for   the   continued   prosperity of the country.  h. smile comes naturally when we meet our friends and  acquaintances face to face,.in.our offices, .at our homes, or  on"the street.

The war is over and won; but Canada's main expenditures for war will  not be complete until well on. into  1920. The $610,000,000 raised last  year has all been spent, $400,000,000  having been largely devoted to soldiers���������to maintaining '.hern, bringing them home, providing, the necessary medical services,.training them.  Most of the balance of the loan was  lent to Great Britain to enable her  to buy our surplus products. And  money is still necessary ��������� for soldiers, for. providing markets, for our  surplus products, for the needs ol  reconstruction. And' that is why another Victory Loan is necessary.  Canada still needs money, and needs  it badly. *  Wm. Atkinson.  General Auctioneer and  Live  Stock   Specialist. ������?Z*J  23 \ ears among tlie Stockmen of  r.he Fraser Valley.

Speculation is one thing., Investment is another. The majority ol  citizens want an investment, not a  speculation. And they want a safe  investment. Victory Bonds fill thai  requirement as does no other investment. Because behind every bond  there is the national wealth of Canada��������� a wealth so great that it staggers the imagination.  Canadian Bank Clearings.  That Canada is well able to sup  port the Victory Loan is clearlj  shown by the Canadian bank clearings for the current year. They indicate that the year's total will exceed 515,000,000,000 compared with  $13,776,000,000 in 1918. And the  year's total clearings should be .throe  times those of 1909.  P. W.

PKOCiKAMJH''  "COltDlAli-WHLOOMK  TO THE  KKTUHiXMl)   SOLDIERS   HISIIK  (From' Fraser Valley Record)  Tuesday evening, Armistice Day,  1919, will be remembered in Mission  City as the dato of one of the most  successful social gatherings in the  history of the district, held for the  purpose of bidding welcome to the  returned soldiers of the district,  their wives, their sisters, their mothers and their sweethearts. The big-  skating rink was filled to overflowing  and some 4 00 people sat down to  one of the best banquets it was possible to  partake of in any  district.  The bugle call sounded about 7  p. m. when all sat down except the  members of the Red Cross and the  1.  O.  I"). E.   who. acted as waitresses  After the banquet had been enjoyed Reeve J. A. Catherwwxl,' who occupied the chair, said it had been  impossible to welcome all ths boys  back in any other way than a gathering liko the present, on account of  their coming at different times, but  the ladies of the district had this evening done their best to e-xtond a  'hearty welcome to our returned soldiers, who had rendered such excellent service overseas.  , Tho chairman spoke of the cheerfulness of all present and that it was  tills cheerfulness which had carried  the boys through to Victory- "It  gives me great pleasure to welcome  you back on beha-lf of the citizens  of the district", he said.  The toasting began with one to  the King; Dr. Stuart proposed the  Piincc of Wales'; Mr. \V. II. Mathew-  son, The army and Navy, and coupled  with it the name of Mr. Win. Aves,  ���������who replied in well chosen words;  Rev. .1. \V. Weatherdon, of All.Saints  Rev., C. MeDiarriiid, of the Presbyterian church, Rev. G. B. Ridland of  the Mothodist church and Mr. W.'J.  Mansoit on behalf of Rev. Father  Rohr told how that gentleman was  unable to be present, extended to  the soldiers their welcome back on  behalf of'i'.ni; various churches, while  Mr. W. J. Manson made a line  speech welcoming the boys, ho in :\ lie  said the present gathering was only  made possible by the fact that tho  men of. Canada, of British Columbia  and tho men of Mission and district  had so nobly reHjionded to the call  of arms.-. They had giv;>ii up everything and joined Canada's army to  fight for the safety of those at home.  Had thoy not answered the call, and  won, we might this evening have  been here, forced into this building  guard, which would have been niucn  different than being asked to subscribe  to  Victory   bonds. ,   Now   tliai  by the cruel tyranny of a Prussian  the world was saved for democracy  let us pave ourselves���������the greatest  fight to my mind, said the speaker.  ���������The war before us is the war of democracy which must be obtained for  die  whole  race.  Lieut. Brasscy replied on behalf of  the -soldiers, saying we 'all went to  do our duty, and carried that out.  Followed by "For He's a Jolly Good  Fellow." and then came the cheers  of the evening.  Next followed the Silent Toast to  those soldiers  who   did   net   return.  Lieut. McKenzie proposed a toast  to The Ladies, which was replied to  by Mrs. (Dr.) Stuart; and Mrs. T.  Fripp of Hatzic added a few woras  oi" welcome to our returned soldiers  whom she hoped would have a good  time that evening.  - Rev. Mr. Dlarmid proposed the  toast to the Press which was responded to by Mr. Vidal, a returned soldier, and present that evening to report the gathering for his  paper.  The programme followed' with a.  tenor solo by Mr. Alex. Wallace of  Now Westminstor, and Mr. Meiizies  of Vancouver, the Scotch comedian  followed with some selections; and  Mr. Fred Bannister accompanied,  making an ospecial hit when he  played,'Keep the Homo Fires Burning.'  After the programme came the  dance which was greatly enjoyed.  Great credit is due the ladieB of  the Red Cross and their energetic  president, Mrs. Keeves, who extended  the pleasant smile -and glad hand to  each and all aa they entered the hall  that evening. Many, willing hands  made the evening's work a pleasure  aud the various committees did well  It was one of the grandest evenings over spent in Mission City.
