LETTEBS TO THE EBlTBi  K*-n1ott-*������Trt nn  >V(v������uuw*.    %m������2  Editor Review :   ���������  Sir,���������You have offered me space to  answer some of the remarkable arguments, by means of which you seek to  a very weak case.  in jregaro to 'iljieParents* Peti-  tion, this; was' taken'round by one"*bf  the parents (except to very few), it  was handed" to' me~-by' a' 'parent, and  was presented by myself.

He was  unable to give any that "an intelligent  person would accept.  ITour comments on the inspectors  reports are-.unfair. Let any fair-  minded person read the reports concerning .Mr. Brouson, and nothing  else, he would ho ' doii ot call *; them  good reports, just as the. annual meet  ing did. You inserted - them in ' a  framework ol your unfair comments,  and; t6 influence public opinion unjustly, you printed all that was against  Mr. Brousson's work, in his reports,  while in comparing these with ihe re-   j��������� r-D-- -������*i_._'*;r j:_i__.   r-~-  ������r_ ��������� o tx\~  |juiuc yji   jwiob jj;amiui>u   ui   uu', ciuiuu  you gave, only part of the reports ou  these teachers. ;.  The examination results, in the  principal'sroom, are IS entered, 18  passed. This yea* the perfect results  in the Advanced High School - Class  have placed Creston among the seven  high schools that have done that.

On two occasions I  made objections which were not listened to by the other two trustees who  were in the majority aii through. Can  these two gentlemen assert that they  did not seek business for their firm out  of dealings with the school?    I re-  rnember how at one board meeting,  Mr. Edittir, you, ybursfelf.-'asked nsy  colleagues   thisY question:   *' Do you  keep foolscap ?"   On reviving"* reply  you7said, "Sou might'as well bay������  some of this business instead of giving  it all to Oatway."   Tou are incorrect  when you state "a trustee who  has  sold no goods at all,"   They may not  have been his goods but he sold for a  firm   employing  him.     Finally,   Mr.  Ecitor, I wish tiri say that I never read  articles-' claiming to be disinterested,  more grossly unfair to one ������*iqe, than  yours.   You attack small faults of educational work, the petition, and 6$  the annual  meeting itself.   You defend, I am sorry to say, condnct of  which   1   would   be   ashamed   to   be  guilty of. Frank IL Jackson.  Trustee Resigns  ��������������������������� *3~* TSTa    ���������  ' ���������   ��������� ��������� :     '"' 1 C< s  ���������iiat-r rifictpai sta^s  "'.       Am- mW  man, was giving this _parfc of the Valley a careful look over a few days last  week. Enquiries for land are reportec  more numerous right now than ever  before.   - -  At last Trustee Jackson has crawled  out from under the barn and has  something to say that may pass as a  statement of case* but let's see how it  will stand the wash.  Thai ^Parents" Petition  He urges that the petition was taken aroiindjby a parent (except to a few).  The parent in this case happent to be  a lady with one boy who has been in  the primary room one yeaiyand a girl  who went to the ex-prinbipal three  months. Not really the most likely  Broussonian for such a mission���������-and  no contact, either, with Canadian  public schools previous to September,  i������I7.    Despite the importance Trustee  1 you doubt this  look at  ever had. -1  the records.     ���������-'"���������������������������.'������������������%���������'���������''������������������"''' '  ':*~Y'-'  I am quite right in saying that  "We have had less trouble than for  years past*'* iki reference' to playground  discipline. Mr. Brousson's suspensions  were ail in one day ahc. approved of  by the three trustees. I see. no reason  why trustees should back out afterward. Corporal punishment might  have had less effect than suspensions  had. : We have had samples of corporal punishment in the principal's room  in previous years, with the very worst  results. During 1016-17 truancy,  smoking, and bad language were common and the principal several times  sent notes to me asking me to go up at  . once, up to the school, to look into  cases of disobedience. All the complaints and trouble ended with the  coming of the present ox-principal and  vice-principal. . I suggest, Mr. Editor,  cease to 'judge playground discipline  from the darkness of hiB office and  come up to the school next year to  watch things with his own eyes and  hear with his ears. Then I shall not  doubt tho edltori.il wisdom. ���������'  Yoii complain of my stating  facts to the ratepayers, who asked  for them. As a matter of fact I have  often refused to'titato them, although  all school business is more or less public, and should not need to bo covored  up with secrecy. This year the board  meetings will bo held In the school,  and ratepayers who wish to attend  the meetings are at liberty to do so.  1 wan obliged to ~~~\~\ to tliii  inspector for written reports because  Mr. Oherrington rofuBed to accept my  version of tho verbal report given me.

And as to Reasons        .  As to reasons, he points out that as  Trustee Cherrington did not give any  at the annual meeting he (Jackson)  does not feel called upon to argue the  point. But the writer set forth the  reasons in seme detail and challenged  Trustee Jackson to argue the matter?  What a miserable excuse for *so discreet a silence!  AnalInap~ctb.ss' Reports  As to inspectors' reports Trustee  Jackson thinks if the statement as to  the ex-principal is read by its lonesome it's not too bad a report. But if  his reports are "excellent," as he boldly asserts them to be, why object to a  comparison with other not too bad reports on other teachers. The statement that the writer has not published  COiiipltsi**    ueliuiM     of     the   Eioumsuii,  Smith nnd Hnrdman reports is entirely false. These reports are still in our  possession, and those who may be inclined to take the trustee seriously can  look them oyer any time.  The Examination Retultm  On  exam,  results Trustee .Tackson  must be geting his information from  some  overseas  publication.    At least  two other  schools  in West Kootenay  made a perfect high school pass with  larger classes than here���������Trail graduated 27 out of 28���������and  if need  be  we  can name a dozen or more that equalled or excelled  the ex-principal's performance.     And, really, we can't see  anything to blow about passing live  candidates of whom three had  been  two years on the work.     Nor is there  anything to  marvel at the ex-principal passing three out of live at the  Entrance.   As to six out of six who  passed the Junior Preliminary High  School tests bo It known  that the ox-  principal made np the paper-- and alt-to  examined them hunsc!?.   In a time of  uuch urgency a teacher who could slip  Frank Romano's name oh to a "parents'" petition  without Mr. Romano's  knowledge or  consent���������according to  Mr. Bomano'n direct statement���������such  a teacher might not acrupie ni Netting  e������ay T������ripei*a and   not   too ebmely Hern-  tiriiiKtt Ills own  pupils' work thereon.

Trustee Crawford  must resign; "ex-principal Brbuisdh  must be re-instated. ;This is the decision of the education departmeht  authorities at yietoria, sis read at the  trustee meeting - on ��������� MonSajr night.  Which was attended by only Trustees  Cherrington and Jackson.   -  The reason given "''for ordering the  ex-principal's reinstatement is that  the request for his resignation sent  him on May the 30th;does not constitutes a legal dismissal and he is, therefore, at liberty to take on his old position for another- year With the  trustee it is held that the fact he is a  shareholder in a company that has  done business with the school board  disqualifies him.  No charge is made that he used the  position for the firm's benefit, and the  fact that he has been trustee for two  years without complaint avails nothing. "Likewise, in the "ruling no mention is made as to parents' ���������������������������etition}  reasons not being given, inspectors report or examinations results. The ex-  principal was deemed, worthy of dismissal but the. trustees were just a  month late ir. putting the skids under  him.  The resignation of Trustee Crawford  was turned in on Tuesday, and tha vacancy will be filled at an election for  that pur-pose at the sehoolhcuse on  Friday night next. YAs yet no announcement is manefas to whether the  ex-principal will fremain on under  these cirenmstsnees- out the general  impression is that he will. ?*--  Tenders wereiopehed for the supply  of 40 cords ofV^wood.

Devine was reappointed janitor, but,to' help him to  more efficiently handle the heating  plant the makers of the furnace will  be written to for instructions as to  how to operate to obtain the best all  round results.  Trustee Jackson failed to get a seconder to his motion to reinstate the  ex-principal, and this little detail will  haye to be fixed up when the third  trustee is elected.

The'recent gigantic battles, as the  result of which more wounded men  than ever before have received surgical treatment within a short space  of time, have demonstrated the"-immense strides made-net only in surgery, but the methods of removing  thc wounded ��������� from thc battle fields  and transporting them to hospitals.  So effective is the co-operation between surgeons and physicians at the  front ,and those at the hospitals in  the rear that an immensely larger  proportion of the wounded recover  than was the case at the beginning  of  the  war.  Men whose legs or arms have been  fractured by shells now- are restored  to their regiments in a-minimum period of time. This is very largely due  to the fact that they receive prompt  antiseptic treatment and surgical attention, which prevents blood poisoning and the stiffening of the articulation. Their recovery is rapid in  the hospitals behind ihe Hues, where  thcy can be treated under comfortable conditions far from the nerve-  racking- sound of thc guns.

Holiday Resort  Canadians   -'Learning      More    Than  -   Ever Before the Attractions  of Home Country  "SuniriierMravel is good in Canada  this year, despite the war and :omc  inclement, weather," said Mr. W. -J.J.  Snell, general passenger agent of the  C. P. R., eastern, lirfes, yesterday.  "In fact the war has had two 'outstanding effects so far as Canada is  concerned. Conditions with regard to  foreign travel have become so expensive and so restricted that Canadians have been almost compelled  to iearn something about the. advantages of the Dominion as a holiday resort. At. the same time the or-  dinary wage-earner has had such  opportunities for making money that  an unprecedented number of working people have been able to indulge their lifelong desire to take  their wives and family ba*xk to their  old homes and sec 'the old folks at  home.' This latter feature of 'travel  has been very marked during thc ���������  past year, and is more in evidence  than ever this summer. In all parts  of Canada thousands of men who  have for many years nursed the  hope of some day taking their families back to their old homes are able  to make the trip this year and thcy  are doing it. The result is good for  the country, good for the families,  and good for the railways.  "In fact-," said Mr. Sneii, "one of  the most remarkable features of  present war conditions is the application of the motto 'Canada for the  Canadians.' More of our-people are  learning to know their own country  than ever before, simply because of  she expense and difficulty of going  abroad. Travel to Europe has been  practically eliminated, owing to war  conditions on the Atlantic. Tlie increase in rates in thc United States  and the difficulties surrounding travel from Canada to American resorts  has to a considerable extent reduced  Summer travel from Canada. The result is that thousands of people who  in other times have always gone  abroad or to the United States for  their summer vacations are now  spending  their    holidays     and    their  \  Fill up your pipe with T & B���������[rich,  mellowed, sun-ripened Virginia.  *u~������  , fi 1*118 genuine  has a flavor and aroma all its own.

Hc  had the air of having only half  heard, or half understood.  "Soil?" he demanded. "What thc  <lcvii has soil got to do with it? Oh.  I see what you mean. AU right.  Keep a stiff upper lip."  His roaster having departed, Mr.  Jevons sot to work to tidy up the  disorder in his sanctum, a crafty  smile creasing his thin mouth as he  rinsed the wineglass used by Superintendent Noakes. Then he looked  at his watch.  "One of the drawbacks of this Hy-  blown Cornish coast is that you don't  get your London papers till the afi-  crnoon," lu* murmured. "I shan't  get a s<|iii*it at the Daily Lynx for  au hour yet, and I'm rather keen on  reading about the governor's scrap  with the police on the Oxford road.

And the name of West don t  stand up so staunch to ..the winds of  heaven as when Wests were housed  at  Western  Abbey.",  With his back ta the firclcss grate  Sir Anthony had been lounging  against .the . mantelpiece, but he  straightened himself suddenly, amazed horror creeping into his careless  eyes.  "Martha!" he cried. "Good God,  Martha! You don't mean that 1 am  suspected of having killed  that   -wo  rn ai  !*"'  The  ing in  Farm,  CHAI'TKK V.  Thc rZingari Ribbon  gaunt   Cornishwoman,  porch  the   stone,  shaded   her  eves  of  and  stand-  Merlin  gazed  along  the 'moorland  road.  Ten   times  in as  many  minutes she had  left  her  ironing   to   come   to   the   door,      and  this   time   site   was     rewarded.

Three minutes later the  crazy  vehicle  crawled  to  a  standstill  and  Sir'Anthony   West  leaped  out.  "Gni in*- wire, then, Martha?" hi*  said, hauling out a kit-bag. "1 can  sec you'ivtr as lit as ever, but hold on  while I pav this lohnny. Shan't he  a  second."  "Don'i over-pay him. Master  Tony," tlio- woman enjoined, her  (tugged face stern .villi disapproval  as she walehed the obvious disregard  of her injunction.

"Tint'.:   -ill    ii>.|il       vou      dear       old I  "I think that you have enemies  somewhere, Master Tony, and that  vou will have to be careful," was  the replv.

But a lie like that gathers  strength as it spreads, and I'm glad  you'll have, a chance to contradict il  before  the  Crowner."  But could he do so in such a manner that would be convincing, Sir  Anthonv asked himself iu worried  apprehension. It would be easy to  deny that he had been in Comlyn ou  thc.'fatal day, but he was precluded  bv his oath to Jasper Morgan from  proving the bare statement by saying  that while the murder was being  done in Cornwall he was in the  hands of thc Bucks police on his way  to Slough police, station, where, as  Jasper Morgan, he had spent the following uight in a. cell. He had as  complete an alibi as could be wished for, but he would be unable to  set it tip unless Morgan released  him from his promise. Tn thai  thought there was some comfort, for  though he hardly knew Morgan and  did not like him, his partner to the  wager   could   hardly   refuse   his      re-  travel as " to more than offsetr-this.  People arc visiting our own Rockies  instead of going to Switzerland, going to Canadian resorts instead of  taking Germ, n waters, taking trips  over the Canadian lakes and rivers,  or to our own coasts instead of going to American ocean resorts. It is  a curious effect that war should*  force Canadians to know their own  country, but that-is one of thc results of the European conriagratifon,  and one that should prove, of lasting  benefit   to   Canada."  As a result of these general conditions, Mr. Snell said that passenger  traffic in Canada has been unusually  good both on the C.P.R. and. on all  Canadian railways, as well as on the  lake and other steamship lines, despite the fact tirat under war regulations there were, no more excursion  or special rates. The rates in thc  United States had gone up so high,  with a stringent abolition of all excursion or oilier special rates, that  people, were learning more and more  to do their pleasure travel in Canada.  "A good deal of this is due to the  fact that wages in Canada arc higher  than ever before," said Mr. Snell.  "Where   a   few  years   ago   men   were  Salvage Ships  Slink By U-Boats  407 Vessels Recovered by Admiralty  Department Since January  1915  From  January, 1915,  to  the  end  of  May,  1918, 407   ships   sunk    by    the  Germans in British waters have been  salvaged, according to details of the  work of  the admiralty    salvage     department, made public in  the  press.  Up to December, 1917, "260 ships  were recovered. In the present  year to the end of May, 147 have  been salvaged, the increase being  due  to  improved  methods.  Among thc difficulties encountered  has been the emission of poisonous  gasscs from the rotting cargoes of  sunken sliips, which sometimes have  caused the loss of lives. One salvage  ship was torpedoed while working on  a wreck, while sometimes thc work  of weeks is destroyed by the rough  sea. Feats performed by the salvage  department includes the raising of a  large coiiier, sunk in twelve fathoms  of water and involving a dead lift of  3,500 tons.  cute    Concern   Which  News Creates  War,   with  its  harsh upsetting    of  habit and the stern demand for sacrifice, strikes home again.     It is announced  tiiat   the  world has  but     a  short  three-months'  supply  of     hairpins.    No more, at present, in sigiu.  Thc acute concern which this news  creates  is  not, according to  the  agitated comment of The Regina Leader, confined to the gentler sex.  Merc  man, it confesses, has often  wondered    what    woman     would     do   next  ���������with  the  hairpin.     Now  he  is    faced  with the prospect cf seeing what she  will  do  without  it,  The Leader is confident that woman will rise superior to -the hairpin. It suggests that Dame Fashion  may save her in the crisis. It- eloquently speculates upon the possibilities of "flowing locks carefree of  those odd little contortions of wire-  work" or of the youthful braiding of  her glory. It looks for new and  perhaps more fascinating methods cf  wearing the- hair.  But The Leader seems to overlook  the fact that the hairpin is put to  many uses beyond that for which it  is primarily designed. The hairpin  button hook, the hairpin lock opener,  the hairpin pipe cleaner, and a myriad of other hairpin ut*ensils will  have to go, too. The doom of the  hairpin will command concern from  more than Dame Fashion.���������Toronto  Globe..

The final decision in the school  controversy was handed out at  Victoria last week, reaching here  on Saturday.  The order - promulgates that  Trustee Crawford must resign,  which he has done, and an election  to fill the vacancy will be held on  Friday evening next.  The trustees are ordered to reinstate ex-principal Brousson. In  coming to a decision in the case the  department finds that the trustees  were quite within their rights on  all the points raised at the annual  meeting concerning his dismissal-  al; their fatal error was in not dismissing him sooner. In other words  the request for his resignation on  May 30th is not a regulation dismissal, which must be served before  the end of !\4&v.  Mr. Brousson is, therefore, in a  position to stay if he does not care  to accept a gentleman's request to  resign as an according-to-law notice to quit.  This request for resignations has  always been accepted as a notice to  leave, by all -previous teachers���������and  white men in every other walk of  life.  As the ex-principal has not acquainted THE BEVIEW with his intentions as to staying or going it  would be unfair to further discuss  the incident at present.

Following this line of reasoning a little further might we return  the compliment by enquiring if the  trustee is so -stoutly championing  Mr. Brousson's cause because the  ex-principal is a '"patron" of the  excellent Jackson dairy? It's a  poor rule that don't work both  ways., don't you know.  In parts of the Okanagan the tomato  crop is reported unusually heavy this  year.  At Grand Forks last week a Servian  gentleman was fined $25 for being an  idler.   ������  Gophers have been yery destructive  to the crop on St. Mary's prairie this  year.  Owing to the shortage of feed Kaslo  is hopeful of slightly cheaper beef this  winter.  In the Boundary country grouse  are reported more numerous than usual this season.  Cranbrook city council is considering giying tile fall fair in that town a  donation of $250.

John Simpson, ex-chief of provincial police at Greenwood, is now checking lumber at a mill at Princeton.  At Mirror Lake the government  wharf is.in bad shape and^boats have  difficulty at times in making landing.  Just at present patriotic flower sellers at Revelstoke station are knocking  down   $45  a week   for various  war J  causes.  Some Rosslanders are bringing in  young turkeys from Alberta, paying  $1 for two-and-a-half months' old  birds f.o.b.  Ranchers in the Rossland and Trail  section have a fine crop of vegetables  this . season potatoes being exceptionally fine.  Penticton has almost $23,000 of taxes in arrears, At a recent sale of land  for taxes only 104 lots out of 590 offer-  es were sold.  Never within the memory of the  oldest old-timer have the gophers  been so numerous at Phoenix as they  are right now.  B.C Seed Growers1 Association is  sending a machine to Grand Forks to  thresh the bean and pea crop in that  section this year.  Cranbrook came through with .$107  in a recent house-to-house canvass  for the coin wherewith to buy flannelette for the war sewers.  Kaslo is hard put to explain the  j*prw?nr*������-nce   of   a    most    unusual  plague of a sort of brown butterfly  or moth, the creatures being thick  as bees and roosting all over town.

But note, the year previous Trustee  Jackson_8tates the school ground  discipline was far worse, aind he  himself  had to. lend a hand on more than   one  occasion to  straighten   matters  out.

And, stranger still,  at the end  of  the   school. jrear  this  same Trustee Jackson never said  boo  as to dismissing the principal who tolerated such disgraceful conduct.

And seeing we have his permission  to delve, into the records it would be  unjust on our part to disoblige him, so  here'goes: Turning to the treasurer's book for the year ended Junfi-1915,  we find 35 cents was the total expenditure at the Jackson store* Looking  up the minute book we find that at the  annual meeting on July 10, 1915, ������. H.  Jackson was named as a trustee on a  motion made by R. Boadway. And  under date of July 2������s 1915; we find  that R. Boadway became janitor on  motion made by Trustee Jackson.  And looking at the treasurer's book  for theyear ended June, 1916, we find  that the Jackson store did a bigger  business on supplies than any other  generai store that year. And for the  school year ended June, 1917, the F.H.  Jackson store was. the only one that  got any money .at all for janitor's  supples. These "are the records. Come  in and see them if ^ou wish.  Taking these things all into   consideration, and seeing   Trustee   .Tackson  approves of drawing conclusions from  appearances, one might  ask:    1. Did  "F,  H,   Jackson   become   trustee  for  what there was  in   it ?   2. Seeing he  had the big end of the trade one term  and got all the money thus paid out the  next year, what sort- of a piker   is   he  to complain of the other   fellow   gett  ing thy lion's   share   of   the   trade (a  quarter of which  was done   at   cost���������'<  lihe chemical equipment) one yea-? out  of his three-year term .    8.. And what  manner of man is he to allow   himself,  to be used to bring about the   unseating of a trustee who only did in a   less  direct way what. Trustee Jackson carried on for over two years; and .always  at fair prices, if one may judge by the  XXX 77 %X jf  moved that his opponent's account be  paid.  Would Trustee Jackson have us be-  leve that "when rogues fall out honest men get their dues?" And all for  the purpose of retaining the services of  a principal whom Trustee Jackson not  six months ago described to the trust-:  tee board as "Ad��������������������������� poor citizen."- Possibly the end justifies the  means.

This'was disclosed by Major-General William  Brancker, controller of equipment on  the council, who is in Washington to  discuss this and other projects relating-  to  air   warfare  with  American  officials.  Plans for an initial flight across  the Atlantic in August, September or  ���������October of this year arc already well  ���������advanced. American co-operation is  sought and General Brancker hopes  that the first machine to. 'make the  crossing- will carry both British and  lied for the trip.

Thc premier added:  "The threatening situation on our  frontiers certainly demands safeguards. Wc do not want the Bolshevik i in  China."  'With reference to Chinese pnrlici-  i pation in the war on tiie European  battlcfronts,   the   premier   said:  "I would like to help thc allies, and  would be glad to send 40,000 or 50,-  000 troops, but am prevented by financial  difficulties  and  the    activities  .���������   <^i-..  ia.l     a.aav^.  the      American  ., . ���������     .     i. _, ~  illC    piOJCCL  ���������g  1.

Attendance at the place of prayer (v. 13).  Thc accustomed place here was at  the river side. The accustomed place  today is in church. God can and does  save men and women without any  seeming connection with places of  established worship, but he app.ears  to most people at such places. The  very fact that he has established and  sustains churches here and there is  au urgent call to all men and avo-  nncii to place themselves in the w-ay  1 of salvation. While no one can save  himself, yet all can put themselves in  thc way of salvation by attending  church,  reading  the  Bible, ^etc.  2. Listening to the preaching of,  the Word of God  (v. 13,  14).���������'  Paul took advantage of the opportunity which was given him ..by the  assemblage of this group of devoted  women to preach Christ to them. He  was alert for and prized highly the  opportunity to tell thc people about  Christ.

The   point   made     by  General   Brancker  favoring   the     employment  of  British    equipment    for  the  venture   is   that  the   new     Rolls-  Royce 375  horse-power engines  have  proved  reliable  enough  practically  to  insure, no difficulty  from  this  source.  The American   Liberty    motors,     he  said, are admittedly better in perfor-  niauce   than   this   Rolls-Royce,   being  of ���������lighter weight  and  giving, greater  -power, but they  have  not yet reached  the  status   of   reliability     of     thc  Rolls-Royce.     The   general   was   certain,    however,    that    Liberty-driven  night bombers' would be crossing thci  ocean iu fleets  next summer.  Under any consideration, a seaplane carrying at least 750 horsepower will be the first craft to attempt tlu* flight.

Regarding the feeling of the Chinese toward the Germans, Gen. Tuan  Chi Jui said that the people generally could not distinguish between, the  Germans and other "Europeans, adding:  "But the enlightened classes_ remember that because a mob killed  two missionaries, Germany forced us  to cede Tsin Tao and owing to that  precedent places like. Port Arthur and  Wei Hai Wei were sliced from  China. But for Germany China  would  be  whole  today.  ���������'Furthermore, it is impossible to  forget-that during the Boxer trouble  German troops were ordered not to  give quarter, while thc invasion of  the impnerial palace by German soldiers was a disgrace, unparalleled in  our civilization, and will ever be  vivid to thc national consciousness.  "The Boxer rising itself was provoked by German bullying at Tsin  Tao.    Besides how can we. forget thc  God's   call  to  preach  Christ  was opened by    the  himself  harping  the  kaiser's   continual  Yellow peril."  The premier declared his intention  of opening up China after thc war by  developing mineral deposits and extending railroads.  3.  Her heart  Lord  (v.  14).  The "individual may place  in the way of salvation by coming)  near to thc means of grace, and thc  preacher may preach the Word of  God, but there is no hope of salvation until "the heart is opened bj* the  Lord (John 6:44 45)._ While thc salvation of every one is dependent upon this sovereign act of the Lord,  yet we can be sure that he is willing  at all times to do this for those who,  like Lydia, place themselves in the  way of his saving grace.  4. She was baptized (v. 15).  This ordinance follows belief i n  Christ. The invariable rule in , the  early church was for believers to be  baptized. While there is no salvation  in the water of baptism, yet hearty  obedience should be rendered in this  respect (Acts 2:38-41; 8:12; Mark 10:  16). Lydia brought her household to  Christ. This is as it should be. She  showed signs of the new life, in that  she expressed gratitude toward those  who had been instrumental in her  conversion (v. 15) by constraining  them to share the hospitality of her  home.  2. How thc Phillipian Jailer Began the Christian Life (v. 25-34).  1. The occasion (v. 25,*26).  The casting out of the spirit of divination from the damsel landed Paul  and Silas ih prison. The pain of  bleeding backs, and of feet in stocks,  kept "them from sleeping; but not  from praying aud singing.   The Lord  Cut Trans-Siberian  Railway Connections  European     Russia     Loses    Railway  Control  and  Grain  Czccho-Slovak control of parts of  thc Trans-Siberian railway has completely cut all rail and wire communications between Siberia and Russia  and lias resulted in depriving European-Russia of the Siberian grain  supply.  The. Czecho-Slovaks now control  the southern section of the Trans-  Siberian railway from Samara to the  Volga river, to Tchelyabinsk, and the  Siberian main line on the east to  Novo N-ifeolaycvsk,' also the northern  branch from Tchelyabinsk to Yekaterinburg.  The Czccho-Slovak organizations  originally ��������� numbered about 40,000  men. Of these nearly 20,000 reached  Vladivostok. The remainder involved  in an effort to resist disarmament,  arc chiefly centred about Tchelyabinsk  A despatch -rom Amsterdam a.  day or two ago reported at some,  length thc words of the kaiser . on  June 15 at a celebration, at the great  headquarters of the German* army, of  the anniversary, of his accession.  Thc gist of the report follows:  The war is not a matter of a strategic campaign, but i struggle of two  world views w.e-tling with one another, the emperor declared.  "Either German principles of  right, freedom, honor and morality  must be upheld," he added, "or Anglo-Saxon principles, with their idolatry  of  mammon,   must     be     victor  ious.  The  Anglo-Saxons, . hc asserted,  aimed at making the peoples of the  world work as slaves for thc Anglo-  Saxon ruling race, and such a matter could not be decided in days or  weeks, ar even in a year..  The emperor emphasized the fact  that from the first he had realized  the trials of war would be great. The  The first outbreak of enthusiasm had  not deceived him. Great Britain's intervention had meant a world struggle whether he desired it or not.

I  2. Tlie method (v. 27-3-,).  (1) Visitation of the supernatural  (v. 27-29). The jailer was awakened  from his sleep hy. the earthquake.  This earthquake was unusual, in that  it loosed the bonds from the prisoners' hands. In his desperation thc  jailer was about to commit suicide.  This was averted by Paul's assurance  that all were safe. The fact that  thc doors were opened and the prisoners free and yet no one escaped,  showed him that something unusual  had occurred. Therefore, he came  trembling and prostrated himself before   i'aul aud  Silas.  (2)    The great question  (v. 30).  the  presence of thc supernatural  cried   out,  "What  must   I     do   to  saved?"    One's salvation is    not  off when ho utters this cry with  ceritv.  (3j The vital answer (v. 31. 32).  "!3a-lieve on thc Lord Jesus Christ,"  i.s ihe only way to he saved.  (Acts 4:12). Though the way of salvation is restricted, il is simple and  easy. No one who has believed on  Christ has failed lo receive il. The  jailer's faith was not blind faith, for  I hey spake unto him the word of the  Lord, and to all that were in his  house. Thcy were taught the meaning ol   hrliel  iu  Christ.  (4) The evidence of a transformed  life  (v. .33, 3-1).  (a) He was baptized (v. 3.V).

(b) lie tenderly washed  the stripes  Splendid Club   House    for    Colonial  and United States Nurses  ***  Early in April there was opened iu  Rutland Square,  Edinburgh,  a splendid club    house    for    colonial     and  United States nurses who visit Great  Britain when  released from their arduous duties in Erancc.    The building  was originally a club house for men  of  the  overseas   forces   and  so   completely did thc house fulfil its mission  of  giving  comfort   and  rest  it      was  soon impossible to accommodate   all  the applicants.    On moving the men's  club   to   new   quarters     the     Rutland  Square house was fitted up by a citizen interested in  providing  comfortable    quarters    for    visiting    nurses.  There is sleeping'accommodation for  sixteen and thc  charges    for    meals  and bed are very  reasonable.      The  expectation  is  that  the    owners     of  many beautiful  Scotish estates     will  supplement the    hospitality    of    the  club   house  by  invitations   to      their  country  homes.        The      Edinburgh  branch of the Victoria League is responsible for the    club    house     and  which the. Marchioness of Linlithgow  is  president.  H. V. Whale Hunters  Making' Good Catch  New Canning Plant Working at Full  Capacity  Reports from the whaling stations  indicate that there, has been a great  improvement in all respects over  early May conditions. Thc weather  has greatly improved ou all the  "hunting grounds" and the number  of mammals secured by all the. boats  has been most encouraging, according to advices Avhich the Victoria  Whaling company hasvieccived.  I'revTbTis reports had shown that  .there were large, numbers of whales  oft" the Victoria island coast, but the  weather conditions had been so unfavorable, that the boats had small  opportunity to make killings. The  latest information is that matters  have, been quite reversed lately, and  at Akulan the. catch not only numbered many whales of" the ordinary  type, but also a  number of sperms.

Every man out there knows what he  is fighting for���������the enemy himself  admits that���������and, in consequence, we  shall gain victory���������the victory of lhc  German standpoint. That is what is  in  question."  The emperor referred to thc per-:  iod of peace, which he described as  "26 ycars of profitable but hard work  though they could not always be  regarded as successful in a political  respect, and had brought disappointments."  His interests had been centred in  the work connected with the de\-el-  opment of thc army and the effort  to maintain it at the level at which  it had been entrusted to hiih. The  emperor continued:  "In peace time���������in the preparation  of my army for war���������my grandfather's war comrades gradually passed  away, and as thc German horizon  gradually darkened, many a German,  and not the least I, hoped, with assurance that God would, in this danger, place the right man at our side.  Our hope has not been disappointed.  "In your excellency, and in you,  General Ludendorff, heaven bestowed upon the German empire and the  German nrray and staff, men who  arc called upon in these great times  to lead the German people in arms  in its decisive struggle, for- existence,  and the right to live, and with its  help, to gain victory."  The kaiser here admits the preparation for the war and the deliberation with -which it was chosen as thc  only course consistent with "the  German standpoint." He pleads  guijty'to thc charges made by his  own   and   his opponents'     diplomats.  His laudation of the moral qualities  in which Germany has shown iusclf  conspicuously lacking, and his sneers  at Anglo-Saxon principles jjre hut  contributory evidences of his aberration. This speech \vill be of immense value when the inevitable settlement of tlie civilized world with  the liohcii'/rillcrns comes to be  made.���������Winnipeg  Ercc  Press.
