The Red Cross plays as large  a part in preventing.disease as  in curing it.    To.insure the sol-  diers.,health it has provided every kind of scientific equipment  such as water sterilizing outfits and great' steam pressure  outfits' on wheels which    costs  from $1000 to $1500 each.    All  historical records    show    that  disease is a greater decimator  of armies than .bullets. Prevention according to the old proverb is worth a pound of cure,  and the value of Red Cross prevention in the present war is  incalculable. The    public  should bear this in mind in apportioning its patriotic gifts. It  is quite natural that every patriotic citizen should desire to  render the state service of immediate- military value. At the  same time it is quite true that a  motor ambulance may be of as  much military value as a machine gunEverything which keeps up  an army's health is an important offensive weapon Economy in Red  Cross supplies is a penny wise and  pound foolish policy. A soldier saved is as good as an enemy destroyed.  Typhoid, tetanus, cholera and gangrene are even more deadly than Ger-  PERSONALS  Mrs, J. J. Sparrow motored  to Vancouver on Saturday and  returned the same day.  Mr. Howard Manzer was a  week end visitor* in town this  week.  Miss Margaret' Shortreed has  taken a position as relief operator at the telephone office. She  will become second operator at  the beginning of the month.  .  Mrs. Hovde. arid family who  had a restaurant here, have moved to Sumas City.  It. is rumored around town  that the people would very  much enjoy an invitation to' a  masquerade ball. Why not the  married or single men as a  "countreblast" to the grand ball  last Christmas.  Mr. Percy Alder and ��������� bride  formerly Miss Clara Brown "of  Buckley, Wash., are visiting  Mr. and Mrs. Alder while on  theirhoneymoon tour.  Miss Leila Zeigler of Vancouver who has spent the summer  at La-Chateau Lake Louise, arrived home on Wednsday.  Uncle Bill is liable to shoot  another deer like he shot last  week as he was the recipient of  a large gun and case. Ash him  about it.  the Rev. I. Williamson . of  Vancouver who preached here-  and Huntingdon about two  weeks ago, will give an address  in the. church Monday . afternoon at 2:30, also at 7:30 p. m  Mr. John McLean and Miss R  Thomas gave a card party in  the Masonic Hall last Friday  evening after supper dancing  was enjoyed.  Miss Forrester of Vancouver  who was dressmaking here last,  winter and spring has returned  again.  LOCAL SUNDAY SCHOOL  INSTITUTE  Master Stanley and the Misses Dorothy and Lola Firlotte  have gone to attend school in  Mt. Vernon, Wash.  Mrs. Dr. McKay of Vancouver will give an address Sunday  at the S.S. Rally of the Presbyterian church both here and at  Huntingdon.  The Presbytery of Westm ins-  ter will meet on Tuesday the 28  in St. John's church Vancouver  at 3p,ra.: when the graduating  students of Westminster Hall  will receive license to preach.  Business is said to be briske.'  in town than a few months ago  Business as usual notwithstand-i  ing the war.  Chief of police DeLair for the  district of Sumas made a trip  to Westminster on Saturday  night last with a prisoner who  had been sentenced to 30 days  in jail for theft of some tools  near Huntingdon.  The Red Cross is essentially humanitarian it is true, but the fact  that its work is life-saving makes it  extremely valuable from a miltary  point of view. Every contribution to  the Red Cross increases our national  strength and is a patriotic gift.

There has besn perhaps no way in  which' the Red Cross has mitigated  the horrors of war so much as thro'  its services in the exchange of prisoners. Strong ptssions are kindled  by war anl the prisoners in some  countries have to suffer a grer.t deal  of malevolence and animosity. The  Red Cross acts as a sort of Consul  for prisoners and inspector of prisoners whose detention serves.no mili  tary purpose. The largest number  of prisoners during the war have  been, in the engagements between the  Austro German and Russian armies.  So that the recent arrangement to  exchange invalid prisoners through  the Swedish Red Coss is of great importance.  Trellenborg in Germany and Hap-  aranda in Russia are the depots and  starting points of the exchange system now under way. Special ferry  boats will take the prisoners from  each, side across the Baltic to Sweden.. The movement is receiving  warm support from the Swedish people who like the population in other  neutral countries manifest a keen  sympathy with these repatriated victims of war. The reason for this  sympathy is that it is only cripples  and those who are permanently disabled who are exchanged.  Times have changed.    A few years  ago the newspapers wore printing interviews wtth bankers who said the  world was going to the dogs because  people were squandering their money for autdmobiles.    Now we come  to the other extreme.    Read this advertisement published over the name  of  the I-farriman  National  Bank  in  New York Sun of July 28th:  A Great Public Utility  "The automobile .has long ceased  to be merely an    expensive    luxury,  and is now an economic necessity as  well to the farmer as to the department store  or  in  any.     occupation  where expedition  or    economy    can  make its  use  valuable.  "By means of the automobile the  outlying country is being brought  closer to the big, cities and the values  that are created in this way more  than offset any ordinary' expenses  which the owners of automobiles may  develop, either in..the way of daily  uukeep, depreciation, or wear and  tear What is gathered from the  ground and capitalized certainly reflects the prosperity of the entire  community and money obtained from  crops and thrift, even though it goes  into automobiles, gramaphones and  pianolas, really puts into circulation  new wealth, and the country benefits  accordingly.-  "With good crops this fall, every  expectation .of the automobile manufacturers .should be fulfilled, while  anticipated reduction in profits per  car will unquestionably be more than  compensated for by increased sales.  "The Harriman National Bank  would be glad to see every farmer  anl merchant in possession of an automobile first for his use in his industry, and second for his pleasure,  for there is, a weighty economic factor of efficiency in the social conditions that suriround labor."  This advertisement has been reprinted by the Washington' Automobile Chamber of Commerce anl is  being distributed generally to bankers and business men throughout the  state.    P.-I.

The. season is fast approaching  when cool evenings ��������� will demand the  starting of fires in our homes. September and October have become to  firemen the months when chimneys  and flues cause the most trouble.  The following suggestions of a  practical nature, if -faithfully followed will do much to prevent damage  to property and ife.  Stoves: Place a metal stove-board  on the wood floor under the stove,  and extending at least twelve inches  in front of the ash pit door. Protect  all wralls and partitions within ��������� the  Seet of any stove with a metal sheild  leaving an air space. between the  shield and the wall. Leave no kindling or other wood in the oven over  night. Do not hang clothes too near  the stove or stovepipes..  Pipes: See that, the lengths of  stove-pipes are well put to gether  free from rust holes and parted  seams, wired firmly through partitions, walls floors, attics and roofs  are dangerous at best.' Where these  must pass through partitions, walls  or floors always use a la'rge ventila-  ventilated double thimble. , you  should examine the stove pipes irrthe '  attics. They may come apart or  rust. Fluff anl spider webs are likely to gather on and around them, to  be set on fire wllen you least expect  it.  Chimneys: Chimneys should be  built from the ground up, and never  rest on wood supports.The settling  of the woodwork will cause cracks  in the chimney.. Nor should the  chimney walls be used to support  joists or other woodwork. Soft  brick and poor molrtar are often responsible for defects in the chimney  Use a good quality brick and cem-  HUGH  General Blacksmith  And Horseshoer  ent mortar.. Chimney walls should  be at least eight inches thick, the  flue of ample size and line with fire  clay or terra cotta. Never stuff up  the flue holes with rags or paper,  nor cover them with anything but a  metal stock. Chimneys should be  cleaned frequently.  Furnaces: Protect all woodwork  above anl around boilers, if "within  three feet, with a metal shield, also  all woodwork near furnace pipes.  It is best to Tivet the lengths of  pipe together to prevent disjointing.  The pipe should fit perfectly into the  chimney. Keep them free from dust  fluff and spider webs, - whicih are  easily ignited.  PRIVATE  TITIO NON-ADVERTISER  A hen is not supposed to have '  Much   common  sense  or  tact,  Yet every time she lays an egg  She cackles forth the fact.  The busy little uees they buzz;  Bulls bellow, and cows moo;  And watch-dogs bark, and    ganders,  quack,       . .  .  And pouter pigeons coo.  The peacock spreads his    tail    and  squaks;       ,  Pigs squeal and robins sing;  And even serpents know enough  To hiss before they sting. '  Yet  man,  the   greatest  masterpiece  That Nature could devise,  Will often stop and .hesitate  Before he'll Advertise.  ���������From  Galloway Gazette..
