Norman this week, and lhe heart of  Armstrong and district will go out  to him in sympathy *"in this, his  hour of great sorrow.'  On Saturday last little 5-year-old  Viola Norman was takeli-sick, and  soon it Avas apparent that the  most virulent type . of diphtheria  had settled upon her. On Monday  Mrs. Norman went to her bed suffering from the same cruel disease. On Tuesday night the mother died, and on Wednesday her  little girl followed her. One  casket served the two, interment  taking place at Armstrong cemetery Wednesday afternoon at 4, the  Rev. Mr. Lee administering prayer  at the grave.  On Wednesday the Norman baby  had developed the disease and was  reported to be in a precarious condition.  Mrs. Norman was aged 31 years,  Viola 5 years.  The. city health department immediately took action, quarantining thc Norman home, and has issued a general order that all refuse  be removed from back yards that  a general rclean-up of the city may  be had. It behooves all that*, immediate steps be taken to comply  with the clean-up order.  HOME FROM THE FRONT  A   Party   of   Four   Armstrong  Men Come in this Week.

Ulh, at Mrs. Mackay's  home at-3 o'clock for election of  officers.          Canada, said Mrs. Muldrcw,  is getting lhc hest ilonr and thc  best loaf of bread in the world.  Canada is not suffering at all;  ancl if the proper economy is  observed, and thc people co-  .opcra.le with the government  authorities to see that all waste  is cut to the minimum, there  need not be any suffering from  1'oocl shortage here.  Armstrong citizens had thc  pleasure of welcoming home some  moie' of their returned men on  Thursday . last. Sergt. Whitmore,  who j has been returned from  France, will receive his discharge  and will go on a visit to his home  in the Slates. Sergt. Whitmore  was in much of the hard fighting  experienced by the Canadians in  France, being wounded at different times. It was he who carried  the commanding ollicer of his  company (LcDuc) from the field  seriously wounded, under fire.  Sergt. W. W. Warren also returned from France and will receive.his discharge.  Sergt. A. Munro of the poslolficc  department (military) in England,  came home wilh lhc party on a  furlough. He expects to be home  three weeks or a month.  Sergt. W. Phillips of Knob Hill,  was the fourth man in the party.  All arc looking in fine health, and  while reporting the food problem  in England most serious, there is  an abundance of money in circulation, and it is difficult to restrain  the men who" wish to spend it for  unnecessary things.  During his three week's furlough  at home Sergt. Munro is putting on  a big: clean-up sale, with the object o'f reducing his- stock so as to  readjust his business to meet present-day "condilions.  ENDERBY NEWS IN BRIEF  Rev. H. .T. King Says Goodbye  Rev. H. J. King preached his  farewell sermon on Sunday last in  the Anglican Church. The congregation enjoyed good Easter music  and appropriate hymns fiom Easter-tide were sung. In the evening  '.he rector, chose for his text part  of the Lord's Prayer: "Lead us not  into temptation, but deliver t us  from evil.". Preceding this sermon, he made a few remarks, ia  well chosen <Avords, wilh regard to  thc changes which have taken  place during his twelve years' pastorate in Armstrong; also the many  pleasant., days he has spent here,  >thevjncny---ki.ncl^erson<5'lic^hasJme^ty  etc. ^ After thanking the people for  their kindness to-him during his  stay, he bid them goodbye.' 'He expressed the hope tliat in some future, time he might re-visit Armstrong, re-visit his friends and^the  Clu.rch and note the improvement  during future years.

Viola Dana, the clever, ingenue  of the Metro Company, will be seen  in "The- Gates of Eden,"' as a  pretty modest Shaker girl. The  slory is a beautiful one, full of  pathos and fun.

It is not the intention of the Government* to allow these men to evade per*  Inanently tfiSro^BSti-or^^  0  yesyvx  r  Cour.tr/anTof "theldeais for which we are fighting. To do so would defeat  the purpose of the Act, and cause grave injustice to men in the second oass  necessarily called out to fill their places.  - Exemptions Granted on FaSss Groups  It is, therefore, proposed to scrutinize carefully all exemptions granted to date  in order to separate those which have been granted on false or msufficien,  grounds from those that are well*founded.  WiHi this object in view the various Registrars under the Military Service  Act have been instructed to issue a series of questionnaires to exempted men.  These Questionnaires muct be filled u? correctly and returned prompt.y under  penalty of forfeiture of exemption for iailure to do so.  Exempted Men Who S-Savo Changed Address  It is* therefore important in their'own interest that all exempted men who  have changed their address since their exemption was granted and who nave  not already notified the Registrar of such change should noafy him_*. om.e.  Under the Regulations it is the duty of exempted men to keep tiie Registrar  advised of any change of address, and failure to receive t������������������e q-stxonna.re  by reason of neglect of this duty must be treated as equivalent to failure to  return the questionnaire after receipt.  Citizens Urgod to Assist  In many instances information has been furnished b-y members of.thejubhc  which has led to the cancellation of exemptions obtauied by .false or ���������������������������s  leading statements. Further co-operation of this character is mvited.

This  cannot be done^by keeping a cow  whiciv eats; food value equal to its  production and in many cases nol  producing a relative amount.

"These are the facts.    They lead
to llie conclusion tha'i since the war
began a food crisis has been slowly
developing. A famine in Europe i.s
a possibility this year. Should the
war alst through the next year the
situation will be more perilous. The
farms and gardens of the Unitell
States and Canada are ihe hope of
thc world.    We musl extend credit
While there appears to be* mere
prosperity   in   the   Dominion   than
there has been  for sonic time, the
people  of  Canada  must  remember
that "prosperity  is   only   temporary
and thai al any moment there may
be    a    slum])    in    the    commercial
world.    This is lhe opinion of men
who have been in touch with Canadian    linances    for    many    years.
They argue that the present highly
satisfactory    conditions    will    con-
jlinue only so  long a.s  thc demand
for  ships  and   munitions   is   maintained.    There is plenty of money
��������� in   Canada,   and   the   banks   were
never  in   belter  condition   lo  meel
lhe  demand   I'or  money  lo   finance
| various   undertakings.     "But   many
I people have yel to realize." recenl-
' ly said one. "the necessity of cui-
: ting down their rations.    While the
'situation al present i.s not one that
need   give   any   alarm,   it   calls   for
morc     careful     handling ' of     all
classes of food on the pari of each
jman, woman and child in this Do-
' minion.   -Greater   co-ordination   is
, required   in  order that there shall
be   greater   economy   iii   all   directions.''' '
Crops this' year promise to be
magnilicant, and prices are certain
lo be maintained all round. Bul it
mi!si. not be lost sight of that this
prosperity is to some extent artificial and, in enjoying this temporary prosperity, the people do
not fully realize the necessity that
exists   for greater economy.
Large storekeepers are warned

G rowers'    Association,
visited Armstrong lasl wejk looking
into  the possibilities of organizing
a   branch   of  the   Co-operaave   As-
ociation  here.    Explaining  to  ihe
Press  the  purposes  ol\. the, organisation  Mr.  Hay said  that the  Canadian   Co-operative   Y\"oo]   Growers
Limited  is  a joint stock  Company
if Canadian wool formers, formed
some few weeks aDo at a delegated
convention of wool growers in Toronto     The shares in the. company
?,re valued at SI0.00 each and only
wool   growers  are  elegible to  hold
stocky  Payment for stock  is made
as follows: 20 per cent.with application  and  the  balance on  call  of
the directors, said calls not to exceed   20   per   cent   and   not   to   be
made    often er    lhan    every    three
months" until amouni subscribed  is
paid   up.     Shares   bear   interest   al
the rate, of G per cent.    The sale of
shares is in charge of the directors
of lhc diU'erent  provinces.    All ap-
Mccilions   for  shares   in   the   Okanagan   district   arc   lc   he   made   lo
Geo. C. May, Director, Kamloops.
The purpose of lhe organization
is to protect lhe interests of the
wool growers as a whole. Provincial organizations have been
successful bul by co-operating
still furlher it is believed lhat better results will be obtained. It is
also believed that a central organization of this kind will have more
weight in dealing with matters
which, affect the sheepmens' interest as a whole. Furthermore, it
is believed that this central organization will have greater weight in
dealing with factors which militate against the interests of wool
growers in Canada. The proposal,,
"that all Canadian wool should be
embargoed," ought to receive an
expression of opinion3 from the
sheepmen themselves. Such an expression can only be brought about
successfully by a Dominion-wide
organization. It is therefore hoped
that every wool grower in this province, as in the other provinces in
Canada, will familiarize himself
with the workings of the company
and realize lhat it is to his advantage to connect himself with the
organization which has becn
formed purely and simply for his
benefit a.s a wool producer.

The assembly hall of the Enderbv Fortune"school was well  filled" Tuesday afternoon to  hear Mrs. Muldrew speak on  the dillicull and intricate work  of the Canadian Food Controllers oflice; what the Food Controller was called upon to face  when the war broke out, and  how thoroughly the work had  been carried out.  Mrs. Muldrew was in close  touch with the work of thc  Food Controller, having been  called in to;, assist the Department early in the organization  of food control work, and the  information given by her,  showing how the many problems had been, tackled by that  department and the success  .which had crowned thc efforts  of the Food Controller, was intensely interesting, to all. Mrs.  Muldrew told of the harrassing  experiences of the Food Controller early in thc campaign,  when he found it as dillicull to  meet the demands ol" hosts of  well meaning people who gave  "freely Iheir advice, as it was to  satisfy lhe jobbers who seemed  lo be" laking advantage of conditions lo increase their profits.  Mer speech was not one of exhortation, but in a simple,  clear-cut way shc forced upon  her hearers thc recognition lhat  condilions are indeed morc serious than ever thought of before, and Die realization that  any waste in thc home of a  single ounce of bread, or bacon  or beef or fat of any kind is a  crime against the community,  thc  dominion  and   the empire.  In view of the vital need of  England and her European allies for cereal J'ood^and for bacon and beef and all fats, it was  no longer a question shall we  conserve, but rather onc of how  much wc can get along wilhoul 'in order to increase our  contribution to the needs of the  Motherland.  Tlie Food Controller was not  making any demands upon lhe  homes of Canada, but ihe department relied upon Ihc-honor  of lhe mothers and fathers of  Canadian homes to induce  them to go as far in their determination to save foods as the  government had by law compelled public eating houses lo  go. And,hin view of ihe saving  already noted by the department it was "evident thai the  confidence'of the -Government  had not been misplaced.  Thc saving in wheal in Canada, said Mrs. Muldrew, had  been less lhan was hoped for.
