C  i -a-JBfifisggaBM-fflgBiag*^^  THE PRISONER OF WAK  In the prison Camp at Geissen  There a captive soldier lay-  In his lonely cot lay pining  For  the  dawning of  "the  day";  For   the  day  of  retribution  That should loose the bondage chain,  That should free the world from sorrow,  That should set him free again.  But his heart was sad and weary  And his days were dreary long,  Drooping low and drooping lower.  Now   his   hearty   spirits   gone.  Oft he thought him of his homeland,  Of his many friends of yore.  Could they only know the trials  Of a prisoner of war.  Day by day he watched in silence  As the daily mails came in;  Day by day the soldier languished,  As no token came for him;  Not a word or sign to cheer him,  Not a line from o'er the sea,  Sad he watched his comrades' rapture  That were now more blest than he.  Can  we leave him,. friends,  to  languish  Bear his load of grief alone?  When it takes a slender pittance  Shall we hand him but a stone?  Let us reach the hand of. friendship.  Help  him pass each  bitter day;  In the prison camp at Geissen smooth his thorny way.  Let. him know his friends remember,  Let him know they understand  Let him feel the hearth fires hunting  In  his home and  native  land.  Let us soothe his bitter hours,  Let us feel no qualm of shame,  Thata lonely heart e'er waited  For the cheer that never came.  That is the plight, of many a warworn soldier lad languishing in a  German camp, pining for the freedom that once was his, longing and  hoping for a message or token from  his far away homo for the tiny offering that is meat and drink  to him.  What does this mean to you and  me? Can we fail to heed this muto  appeal? Will you help us brighten  his darker moments, to give him the  homeland cheer from the only source  whence that cheer can come���������from  you. Then come to the Masquerade  at Matsqui, Friday evening December  J, for the benelit of the prisoners of  war. The Mackness orchestra will  provide the music.  A committee has donated the expense for music and provided for refreshments; and in addition each  member of the committee will pay  the regular admittance. Surely readers, this cause is worthy of your support.. Help us to make this the  grand success of the season. Watoh  for  the posters. Remember  the  date December 1.

' The claim is put forward birth unless they pay the head  that it leaves Vancouver in the '(ax. How this would work we  morning before the trams are are not prepared to say but if  running and returns too late at |there is no other solution to the  night. It has'been suggested! question, better'this than that  that a better service to the val- Ule prosperity of the country be  ley would be that this train  leave Vancouver in-the morning  a little later and return, on the  summer schedule. If this were  done it would make this train  of excellent service locally, but  of course the C. P. R. may not  see it that way.  The matter of abetter service  between points on the line between Mission City and Huntingdon has been , remedied by  the placing of locked bags between the different points. We  believe the Abbotsford board of  trade did good work when they  took this matter up with the  postal authorities.  Every municipality along the  north side' of the Fraser river  are- taking up the matter of  the uncertainty of the Hope local���������some now calling it the  hopeless local. The local board  at its last meeting decided to  add their request for a better  service.  Of course the C. P. R. could  not please everybody but the  present service comes in for so  much criticism from so many  different sources that it would  appear that no point except  Mission City is satisfied that the  company is giving the best  service possible.  ;ept back  TIJU AIM'LU MAHKIOT AX!) CAK  SHORTAGE  Jobbers and retailers are complain  ing of the slow movement of- tipples  from B. C.��������� points. Country points  are not ovorly well supplied with apples and what they have are all- B.  C.'s. It is regrettablo(that more cars  could not have been placed' before  this because this cold spell will affect the movement to some extent.  Jobbers, however are waiting patiently for their cars.  This year afforded B. C. an excellent oportunity to properly show her  wares. From Winnipeg west British  Columbia apples are to be seen and  there will be a good many more rolling to prairie, towns. People are being persuaded by the retailers to purchase boxed apples because "Ontario  has a poor crop this year." This argument is beinp" used in hundreds of  towns by energetic retailers.  Some Manitoba retailers are selling B. C. crated stock at $1.5-0 to the  consumer and are doing a good business.    In one prairie town which your  ing relief and accommodation to the  fleeing refugees have not only been  overlooked, but were at the time actually misrepresented.'  To the-former class belongs Rev.  Mr. Conn, of Matheson, who, according to Mr. Cohen, manager of the  Croesus mine, was probably the most  heroic figure oi* the terrible lire. In  the words of the report given, Mr.  Conn "dug the graves,, prayed over  and   buried   eighty-seven   victims."  . In-carrying out his humane and  self-imposed task under the trying  circumstances of'the fire, and its accompaniments of ruin and environment of distress, the physical, and  mental powers of Mr. Conn must have  been sorely tried, and thore are none  but will concede that he was indeed  one of tho most heroic figures of the  fatality.  Othor heroes who did giant work  were the enginoors who ran their  trains back and forth thru walls of  flamo tluit reared up on either si do",  threatening thera with death if they  dared to enter their territory. These  mon, however, saved hundreds., and  how thoy did It was the wonder of all  who witnessed their work or benefitted by it. That those men should got  soma public recognition would seem  to be but a simple act-,of justice. So  far this does not seem to have been  done."  The above was accompanied by a  pictures of the' Ilov. Mr. Coun standing in front of the post oilice with his  hat in one hand and a Bible in the  other, under which was "Rev. W.
