Word was received last Saturday  that Mr. John McEwen had died in  the east. He was well known and  well liked by all and intended to return to B.  C  There - waa a committee of three  appointed to secure a victory bond  'for the Presbyterian Sunday School  thinking they could get one. Two  were easily gotten and it is anticipated that the third will be secured before the limit if time was up.  The celebration was not quite so  noisy on Monday when peace did  come as on the Thursday before but  we had a dandy bon lire.  When the call came I went out to fight the common -enemy.of mankind.  1 sought no other reason, asked no profit:    Tho Empire's call was for "MEN  j and I went. ' ' ��������� "  1 left, you with a trust. 1 demanded of you that you "carry on" whilsi  I was "over there;*' that, you watch over and care for these near and dear  to me and foot tlie bill, for them aud'for me.  For more than four years 1 have stood between you and destruction. I  have been through.hell and suffered tlie tortures of.the damned; have succoured and again gone forth to drive the enemy back.  On foreign soil I'am greeted by one and all���������poor and rich���������as the  saviour of mankind.   "  When I return to' Canada I shall call upon you for an accounting of  your stewardship.  I shall ask of you "How have you kept your trust" and  woe betide'  those who have failed me; those who have been mere boasters whilst others  and I have paid the price.  I am coming back from a laud where men. poured out their wcalth'till  told to-'stop���������till there was none to pour���������but there the wealth was blood.  . ��������� My account-lies-^iUi-.a.-man named Foch, but yours is due to mo, and  unless you can look "me straiglrfiir'the face-and; say "l.-fough^-wi.th.'yQU^'^uid  show me your bonds. 1 shall deem you have been the Kaiser's friends, aricl  no quarter will be shown.  I will judge you not by yourcheers, or the flags you waved when peace  came, but by the aid you gave, the bonds you bought.  There is yet time, for you to make good, and I warn you that if you have  not, then waste no time in doing so, because I, the man from tho trenches,  am in no mood for dallying with traitors or idlers.  Only until Saturday to do YOUR bit. If you meant those cheers when  you heard of Peace buy your bonds TO-DAY.  .^*>^WdnttV.-jE3J5S5raSS������.WSi^  agg^ssg^aEffiS^-'^^^^'y''^'^ \  i  11  ~^rt  *u  Perhaps you never had an account in a bank���������maybe you've  never done business in a bank���������hardly even cashed a cheque in.  one.    But���������  that is no reason why you cannot go to.a bank and borrow  money to buy Victory Bonds.  If you are a steady, industrious, thrifty citizen, working and  saving a part of your income, you are just the kind cf person  Canada's chartered banks stand ready to help to-day.  Any bank will lend you as much money as you can save  during the next twelve months, with which to buy Victory  T>  Bonds.  All you have to do is to pay ten per cent, cf the amount you  want to buy and deposit the receipt for that ten per cent, in the  bank.  The bank will lend you the 90 per cent, balance at f>Vo p'^r  cent, interest'r.nd will give you.a year to repay it, the interact  yen get on your bond being just the same as the bank charges  you.  fo a fine opportunity for you to begin a real savings  to make a first class investment and to help your  t the same time. :  Why net see a banker to-day-���������he'will, tell you all about it  r.nd you will be glad of the advice and help he can give you.  On Monday evening a Thanksgiving service was held in the Presbyterian church. There was a large gathering, l-tev. Mr. Robertson, Mr. J.  McGowan and Capt. Whitchelo gave  splendid addresses. Sunday evening  will be a peace Thanksgiving with  special services and music.  Miss 1-1 annain from Victoria is the  guest of the Misses Steede for a faw  days.  Mrs. Parton attended the funeral  of Arthur Hume at New Westminster  The deceased was one of those who  met death on the Galiano .  The regular meeting of the Sumas  council was held on Saturday last iii  he hall.  The matter of- utmost importance  at the meeting was the settling of the  deadlock between the reeve and the  councillors.    Last summer .-work was  done on a road in the Indian reserve  outside of the    municipality.       The  recv.o has persistently refused to sign  cheques paying municipal money lor  the  work,  maintaining that  thereby  the Sumas council would be establish  ing a precedent and committing them  to probably the completion    of    the  road, which  would be in the neighborhood of !j:2000.    The annual taxe3  of  the municipality, is about $5000.  The reeve however, in order that tho  men be paid has offered to .pay his ,  share of the wages due the men it  tlie councillors would do their part.  The councillors take the stand that  the municipality is    responsible    for  work and have insisted that the bills  be paid.  On Saturday tho    councillors    appointed  Councillor T.   DeLair to  act  as reeve  for, the purpose of signing  cheques  for. the  men's' time  on  tho'  Kiigard till. ' . '     ,    -    >  . On',.Monday-,Rcevo ' Fooks    vetoed  the' motion passed by tlie council overplus head;  how it is upto the bank.  The deadlock appears to be increas  ing. On the one hand the councillor^ feel that the work should be paid  for out of the municipal funds; while  on the other hand Reeve Fooks feels  I liar the duty of his position as roove  is not to pay the money out of the  municipal funds.  It will probably be a matter 'or  tho ratepayers to decide on at the  next election.  The B. C. Telephone. Co has written to the council'agreeing to clean  up the ditches on C. street .damaged  last winter by the breaking down of  their poles in the ice storm.  Mr. John Farmer objected to the  report sent iu by the council regarding the road he asked for but nothing was clone to change the decision  arrived at by the council and Mr.  Farmer does not get repairs to  road.  the  Make vour money fight.

This was accomplished in the first  three days of the campaign to the great astonishment at  headquarters in New Westminster and there has bee1.) a  steady run ever since.

It certainly looks as though the war'is drawing to a close
��� and our soldier boys will be cbnung'marching home. ��� It is astonishing how quh-kiy some of the soldier boys have advanced during iho war. Here is some young fellow, tlie pearly down of
vol:Mi scarce shaved off his cheek,' who has borne the honored
title of lieutenant, captain, or even perhaps major. But a short
couple or three years ago he was rcgardod as only a boy. Now
he has the lives and fate of a group oi' men aud the interests of
country in his youthful keeping, lie litis carried a heavier responsibility than elderly ones in poMl-ons of power and influence
This is one reason, perhaps, why army life has appealed so
powerfully to our young men, and thoy have been able to write
home such cheory  letters-from the dugouts ami tin; trenches
.In time of war, the doors to advancement are thrown wide
open. There may not be much money suoccss. Rut there is
i'amo and reputation, which are rewards that men prize equally
well. And ail these opportunities may come within a few months
or a year by the quick recognition that is given to ability.
The fellows who have accepted the risks of service, or who
are cheerfully complying with the government1 call, arc ontitRd
to some compensation. It is .right thai, they should be given
prompt advancement in life alie:*i.cl 0/ those who stay at home.
When a young fellow returns from tlie war, victorious, witi
a good record'in an officer's position, it shovJd help him in tin
pursuits of peace. 'He has1 shown ability to lead under cir-
cumtsances of great strain. That ability should be valuable'ir.
any business field. So the'fellows who are making the sacrifices at the front are going to come home and be the coming mei
in the future days of business competition.    -
Thus Ave say- the return of tits soldier victorious from th
scenes'of the battlefield will make changes in business, politics;
and all walks of life during the next quarter of a century. They
will shake up the dry bones of civilization the same as'they have
helped to dowu "barbarity.'

RED CROSS STILT/AT WORK  A correspondent to one of coast papers conveys the idea that the work  of the Abbotsford Red Cross is now  finished, that the war is over. This  paper is asked to say that the Red  Cross work in Abbotsford will be continued indefinitely. The ladies meet  every Friday in their work room in  the building formerly occupied by  Mr. Clark as a store. These are the  best rooms in the valley, being large  roomy and comfortable with lots of  light.  At a recent election Mrs. McMen-  emy was appointed as secretary in  place of Mrs. Parton who resigned.  Although the war is apparently over the Abbotsford Red Cross ladies  do not feel as though their work was  done and expect to- continue their  sewing until such time as the boys  have returned from the front���������probably two years.  The ladies aid met at the home of  Mrs. Ryall last week. There was a  good attendance considering so much  sickness.  Mr. R. J. McMenemy of New Westminster was a visitor to Abbotsford  this week.
