It is a sign that never fails. Like the first rob-  bin of spring���������������������������when you sec him (or her) you  know nature's winter .sleep is about over and that  gay Spring, with all her frills and fancies is tripping this way. Nature takes on new life; old  things pass away; hack yards are cleaned up;  men turn their swords into plow-shares; life enters into enterprises that were once dead; and the  spirit of enmity is transformed into one of good  cheer and mutual helpfulness.  So have we learned to look upon first spite  cases after a long period of torpidity. Somebody has said that in order to keep his head in  a reasonably sane state of health and mental  vigor man must occasionally forget Ms dignity  sufficiently to climb a tree and hoot like an owl,  and perform other fool.pranks like an ape.  When a community has kept the peace as long  and religiously as Enderby, it seems, that it is  necessary, in order to keep a reasonable degree  of sanity, for somebody to start something.  Usually the killing of a man or two before breakfast will do it. If something less harsh is desired,  a fistic encounter will do���������������������������-anything to cause men  lo start thc owl hooting business.  We feel confident, therefore, that Enderby has  made a start. The atmosphere is clearer. We  are ready for tlie big jump forward in thc spring  and, having made so good a start., wc should bc  able lo carry on for many moons wilhoul' having  !lo resort lo anv more hooting from the Irees.  S, O  i     The star I was  made last Saturday when  tho  icases against lhc four lillle gail'ers charged wilh  ��������������������������� disturbing a prayer meeting, and lhal againsl Mr.  *\Vm. Hutchison, charged. wi th common assaulL  jwcre hpard in  thc Cily Hall before Magistrates  Barnes and Hoscman.    Mr. L. J. Oakes,-janitor  al the Fortune school, was complainant in both  cases.    Thc court room was crowded hy a mixed  audience���������������������������boys,   men   and   women.     Mr.   A.   C.  Skaling, conducted lhc case for thc prosecution.  When the case against the boys-lads eight or  nine years of age���������������������������was called, Mr. Skaling, for  Mr. Oakes, suggested lhat tho children be permitted to go into another room with Bev. Mr.  Gretton a few minutes. When thcy reappeared  thcy were allowed to say to Mr. Byrnes lhat they  were sorry thcy had disturbed thc meeting and  promised never to do so again. After a.few words  of warning and caution by Mr. Byrnes and Magistrates Barnes and Rosoman the lads were dismissed, and thc case against Mr. Hutchison was  called.  Mr. Oakes, Mr. Byrnes and Constable Bailey  gave evidence for the prosecution; and for the  defense, Mr. Hutchison, Mr. A. Dale, Mr. A. Antiila, Arvid Antiila and Davy Jones.   ���������������������������.. . s.   ;.  Mr. Oakes testified that on the 7th he: and Mr.  Byrnes conducted a hearing at tlie City Hall in  connection with a certain - disturbance of a  prayer meeting by the two little Hutchison boys,  and the little Dale and Sherlow Jads. He ordered  Constable Bailey to allow nobody in the City Hall  but those interested���������������������������the boys and their parents.  Tlie boys, he ordered to be kept in a separate  room and to appear in the court room one at a  time. Mr. Byrnes and he occupied seats on the  judges' platform and heard the |x>ys singly- Mr.  Hutchison came up to the table from his seat in  the audience awl talked to him (Oojves) at the  table. Jrje accused Calces of hlacjiing a hoy's eye  at the school. Oakes said he never did������������������ and de_  clarai tlie person who sai<l so was a liar, an4  that if Mri Hutchison saicj so he was a stinking  liar. This, led; to some equally choice expression  by Mr. Hutchison. By this time he (Calces) had  left his seat at the table an<l walked up to Mr-  Hutchison. Then Mr- Oalces was frit on the jaw  by Mr. Hutchison and he offered fo let the magistrates feel tlie spot if they wanted to. They did  not care to. He then told how Mr. Hutchison  forced him back to thc window and tore three  button^6ff"his^waistl������������������a^^  buttons on the floor and had them now in his  pocket.  The evidence of Mr. Byrnes substantiated  lhat of Mr. Oakes.  Constable Bailey   told  of   hearing  the choict  assault of words preceding that of fists, and said  that   the  belligerents  struck  each   othcr  at   the  same time, when hc pushed in between them ancl  put Mr. Hutchison out tlie room.  Mr. Hutchison asked Mr. Bailey if it was not a  fact that he (Hutchison) was asked to come up  lo the table by Mr. Byrnes who said hc was hard  of hearing.; To this Mr. Bailey.agreed.  On taking the stand in his own defence Mr.  Hutchison said he had come fo the City Hall to  the "hearing" as one of the parents of the hoys  accused of disturbing Uic meeting. After hearing whal had becn said lo the boys, he rose to ask  Mr. Byrnes something with regard to tlie boys,  and was asked by Mr. Byrnes to step up lo the  tabic as he (Byrnes) was hard of hearing. He  did so. and was "talking to Mr. Byrnes when Mr.  Oakes started poking his finger in his (Hutchison's) face. He told Oakes to go away as he did  not want lo talk lo him. He told Oakes be did  not consider it came with good grace from him  to instruct parents how to care for their children  nnd asked Oakes why he blacked a cliild's eye at  school. Oakes said tlie man who said so was a  liar and that hc (Hutchison) was a stinking liar.  While he was saying this Oakes rose from his  chair, brushed by Mr. Byrnes and stood in front  of Mr. Hutchison. Pie (Hutchison) called him a  name when Oakes up and hit him in the face,  knocking his eye glasses to the floor. He pushed  Oakes back into thc window, when Constable  Bailej' stepped in between them and choked him  back to the street door. While the Constable  had him by the throat Oakes stepped up and lut  him two or three blows in the face over the  shouldters of Constable Bailey.  Pressed as to his statement regarding the boy  with a black eye���������������������������the words wliich caused the  lie to be passed and all subsequent trouble���������������������������Mr.  Hutchison stated that Mrs. McQuarrie last year  brought her little boy to his house, and when  questioned as to tlie black eye the child was  carrying, said it was the result of the janitor's  rough handling of the boy.  Mr. Alex Dale testified as to the words used by  the complaining witness J and the defendant substantially the same as preceding witnesses. He  gave a clear account of what he had seen transpire, and \yas positive the complainant struck  the first blow.  Mr. A. Antiila testified that he-did not understand all that had been said at the table by Mr.  Oakes and Mr. Hutchison. Mr. Hutchison was  invited to step up lo the table by Mr. Byrnes, on  account of the la I tor's difficulty in hearing him.  He dislincily saw Oakes hil Hutchison and then  Hutchison .forced Oakes back against the window, o  Arvid Antiila and Davy Jones testified substantially the same as to thc words used leading up  to the fracas,, except that Davy heard Hutchison  Icll Oakes,that if hc called him a liar again he  would push Mm tlirough . thc window, and  Oakes replied Ilia I hc was as good a man as  Hutchison, and with tliat struck him'in the face.-  After Constable Bailey had Hutchison by thc  neck he saw Oakes step forward and strike  Hutchison twice in the face over the officer's  shoulder. With regard to thc report that Mr.  Oakes had given a small boy a black eye in thc  school, they said thcy did not know that hc had;  Ihcy heard thc school boys talking about it. In  cross examination, Mr. Skaling asked if such a  thing had occurred would it not bc reported to  the teacher or the principal. Davy was not sure.  "Well, if a boy should give you ablack eye at  school, vou would report it, wouldn't you?"  "No."  "Well what would vou do?    Give him a black  -9'  eye  "Yes." ..      - -  Mr. Skaling read a letter signed by all thc Enderby school teachers, stating that they never had  heard of any such misuse of authority by Janitor  Oakes, and ������������������\ commended: his *J*vork aU the ;scliool  very- highly: ���������������������������;���������������������������.'���������������������������     77:7^  y ' V'      "['  . This closed the case: Mr. Skaling asked conviction on the evidence produced, that the de-  fendent had committed an assault, both in words  and gesture. . ������������������  Magistrate. Harnes said, so far as. he could see  the assault had heen committed by tlie complainant and not hy the ttefendtent. Calling a  man-a liar is an assault, he said, not the hlows  that follow. ; .  The charge was dismissed without placing the  costs.

CLOSER CO-OPERATION  Since the close of the war is bound to bring a  lot of men home front the front who were there  in thc capacity of Y. JM.' C. A. workers, and since  these men learned on the battlefield how to handle men, and serve-them, in thc mass, and as the  services of these men could bc put to practical  advantage at home in carrying on work somewhat oii the lines of the work back of thc lines'  on the lighting fronts, an effort is to be made to  organize local branches of thc Y. M. C. A. in  every home community. A representative of  thc organization is touring thc Province for the  purpose of introducing thc proposition and to  promote interest in'thc work. Thus far very little  lias been accomplished in the way of organizing,  ^principally because influenza has made il impossible lo get the people together.  Without wishing,.!������������������ disparage thc work of the  Y. M. C. A. ba'ck ofythc battle lines, or to discourage thc movement at home, avc feel we ought to  point  lo the fact  that already, in  nearly every  small community,  the people arc loaded  down  with   a  multiplicity  of  organizations,   religious  and  semi-religious, all covering thc same field,  and all working wilh  the same object in view.  Any onc of these organizations could undoubtedly cover thc field better and   do   morc  practical  good if il were alone in the field than all now accomplish in their haphazard/system of working.  All these organizations have' to bc supported.  Each lias its following and its subsidiary societies; all do somc good, but thc field of each is so  restricted to its few members that all harmonizing influence is lost in being so scattered.   If it  could bc possible for the Y. M, C. A. to step into  every community and marshal thc forces of all  religious  and  semi-religious   bodies under1  one  head, then it might accomplish sonic real good  Jo the community.   On the other hand, if it only  means   another    organization   seeking   support  from tlie people, already bearing more than they  feel they can afford, then wc seriously 'question  if the movement'will   meet" with   any- great  amount of popularity.    We already have more  engines for doing the work than we have motive  power to keepi"them going.  It is interesting to note that some of the larger  cities are inaugurating a movement that:means  the ultimate doing away with a lot of overlapping  and friction in regard to thc handling of the commercial, industrial and social life of the community. According to'the Victoria Colonist, steps  have been taken there to amalgamate all the  business men's organizations into one, and thus  cut out thc expense of operating the many organizations and a I the same time, eliminate the friction and misunderstanding which always exists  among .them to a greater or less degree. When  the larger cities succeed in the undertaking tlie  movement will undoubtedly spread to the small  communities, which long havc been overloaded  with organizations.  \<������������������v  Xmas Presents From the Gift  Store of the Valley  NEVER DID CHRISTMAS LOOK MORE CHEERFUL; NEVER SUCH A HUGE DISPLAY OF  PRESENTS, WITH SPECIAL ILLUMINATION & DECORATIONS   AND   PATRIOTIC -1  FLAGS TO CELEBRATE OUR FIRST PEACE CHRISTMAS.

This is true.  But Walter C. Findlay, commissioneir and administrator of prohibition, in British Columbia,  didn't try. It has recently developed that at least  a carload of whisky has come into Vancouver  ��������������������������� each'.month while prohibition has been in forcc.  Findlay was arrested thc other day, and a fine of  $1,000 was imposed���������������������������and quickly paid���������������������������and the  prohibilion administrator lost his job, all because hc played inlo the,hands of the "whisky  ring." The. Vancouver Province believes-thai the  arrest of Findlay will be the forerunner of thc  exposure of somc enormous dealings in liquor.  A person closely in touch wilh the investigation  ���������������������������which the government has made, staled that further arrests will probably follow. It is possible  that six or eight people, and perhaps morc, were  in what is being called a "whisky ring" in Vancouver and Victoria, and that alleged illegal  transactions will, run inlo thousands of dollars.  It is said that the irregularities extend over many  jiionlhs and that instead of one' carload, upon  ���������������������������which charge Findlay was arrested, thcrc is  knowledge that relates to from eight to ten car-  unlil morning when search parties were organised by Mayor Shatford and thc Provincial and  City Police. On reaching the lake it was found  at once that a Iragic accident must havc occurred. The hats of Southam and Dodd were  found on the ice near tbe openings. Miss  Lcalhcrdale's hat was later discovered on the  shore and as it was. wet and too heavy to be  blown there it is conjectured that it was carried  by a dog or coyote. Miss Johnson's hat and purse  were floating on the water. The ice had not been  broken, but there were two fairly large openings  where it had not frozen over.

C. Ross, at the Salmon River  School,    and    Published    by   Request   of  Christian Friends  -,s X X X X XX X X X X X X X X X X X X X X  X  Friends, I assure you it gives me much pleasure to come before you and bring you a message  from God's word.   Probably you may think that  I have selcted a rather peculiar passage to speak  to you from, but I don't think, friends,' that there  has ever been a time in the history of the world  that God has been calling His people to come to  Him more than at the present time.    In looking  over God's holy word, friends, I thought I could  not select a topic or passage more appropriate for  this occasion, after looking at tilings as they exist  in thc world at the present lime.     Yes, friends,  our'God has becn calling us and is calling us to  draw near to him, and nft������������������y wc all hear His voice  apt]  respond  and  give 0"F hearts and  Jives  to  Hhnv  '-"You will find my text in Genesis 3-9: "Where  Art Thou "    As you read thc third chapter ot  Genesis, friends, you will find that as .won as the  word went up to heaven that Adam and Eve, his  wife, had sinned and fallen and done wrong, and  disobeyed their God, that God did not wait for an tjlc Father  will   give   that   the  Father may be  invitation to come down.    Oh, no, friends; Hc glorified in His Son.  came right down to look for them. He was sorry j woujtj ]j^c f0 asfc the j'oung people, wherc arc  for them, and He. wanted to tell them so and cf- you? I wouid \foc to have the old men and  feet a reconciliation. women ask yourselves, where are you���������������������������you who  We will also note that it was in thc cool of the soon will bc in another world���������������������������you whose eyes  beautiful trees, and thcy talked  together.    But,  now, friends, we find that ihey have sinned and  disobeyed their sweet Heavenly Father who has  bcen so good to them, and they do not want to  see Him;  they are ashamed to meet Him; they  do not want even to think of Him; and away they  run and hide under" a pile of bushes.    But, oh,  friends, the Great Holy God above, who is all  love, all mercy, all patience; He follows them to  where they are hiding* and-calls in His sweet loving voice, "Adam where art thou"  Friends, many years have passed and gone,  and still God is calling us.   Hav# ypu heard Him,  my brother; have you heard Him, my sister.   I  think you have.   I beliewe"'ifj were to ask any  man or woman in this audfejnee this afternoon if  you had heard the voice of <3od calling you, you  would say that you had at some period of your  life.   I think now is the time for us to ask ourselves the question, "where are we?"   I think wc  all feel and realise thatour God has been asking  us the question in this terrible war.    Yes, our  God has been speaking to us through it all, and  \Y6 beliovu Hint our king and leaders realized that  God lias bcen calling us and speaking to us when  thcy issued that proclamation asking us all to  gather in prayer to our God for help and victory  in a just cause, knowing that all things we shall  ask hi prayer wc shall receive, and knowing that ...... ,,, ���������������������������  all things we shall ask the Father in Jesus name ^ it retards its growth.    If a man will  day, and that they heard him walking up and  down in thc garden and calling, "Adam, where  art thou?" And it is encouraging and pleasing  lo note, dear friends, that it was not thc voice of  wrath,'or thc voice of hate. Oh, no, my friends;  it was the voice of love, the voice of mercy and  thc voice of forgiveness and peace calling a sinner home. Have you heard it, my brother; have  you heard it, my sister? I.have. God has been"  calling me all my life, and seeking me to save  me and bless me, and I am so thankful that 1  heard His sweet and loving voice; and this is why  1 am here; today to tell you the sweet old story  of Jesus and His love. And please don't be annoyed at me if 1 plead with you earnestly, if I  arc growing dim and natural force abating���������������������������  where are you? We do not ask you where you  arc in thc sight of your relations and friends;  we don't ask you wherc you arc in the sight of  thc world. No, friends, it doesn't matter wherc  you are in the sight of one another. It doesn't  matter one bit what we think of ourselves or  each other; but, friends, it matters where we arc  in the sight of God our Father in Heaven, and it  matters .much what our God thinks of us. The  question, then, is are we in sweet holy communion with God, or are we out of communion with  Him? If we are out of communion, then there  is no peace, there is no joy or happiness. But if  we are in sweet communion, then there is joy,  plead with you gently, and ask you to come to there is happiness, there is light all around our  the Lord Jesus and give your heart to Him and  bc happy forever loving and serving Him, and  Jni������������������tJiii Him; for there ia no other way to be  liappv btit in JcstiS, y  I presume, as we study this lesson, that we  might think and say that it was not the Lord who  should have been the seefcer, ������������������m4 I &������������������# **  imght be justified in so doing. On, no, friendu;  Adam and Eve should haye jxsen the seekers, for  they were the fallen ones; they had disobeyed;  they had displeased their God. and they should  have taken the $eejcem' place; they should have  gone up and tjown the Garden of Jicjen crying,  "My God, M>' God, where art thou; My God, wc  have sinned and disobeyed thee; Oh God, be  merciful to us sinners."   Hut they did not.  My friends, it is so pleasing to note tliat our  God, who is all love, all mercy and patience, left  His bright and beautiful home in heaven above,  and came right down to the garden to seek and  save the man and tlie woman who had fallen;  the man and woman who had disobeyed Him;  ancl it is also pleasing to note that His mission  was not to punish Ihem or cast them off the face  of the earth. Oh, no, friends; Hc came to seek  and to save them from their sins, and to plan  a way for their escape. And where docs hc find  ^thcin"?=^"Whyr^ti^a"^corn"cr^sonicwliercr"hiding-  under a pile of brush or bushes: oh, yes, ashamed  and afraid to meet their sweet Heavenly leather  whom  they had disobeyed and displascd.  It is thc same way with all of us, friends: as  soon as avc sin, as soon as wc displease or disobey our God, wc arc ashamed, even thc Christian, and wc want to hide away from Him. We  will sec that when God left Adam and his wife,  Eve, in thc garden lxifore thc fall, thcy were thc  very best of friends Valid., they J walked-up and  down the garden, and God showed them all the  path, there is sweet peace, the gift of GodVlove.  If there is anyone in our audience this afternoon who is not a Christan, I would like to take  you by the hand and lead you to the Savior; 1  would like to plead with you and pray with'you  and ask you to come to the Lord Jesus, your  Savior, and give your heart to Him���������������������������He who has  given Hjs life for you���������������������������������������������m4 be happy forever  serving Hjm.  It was the very first question put to man an������������������l  woman after the fall, and,God nad a very small  audience���������������������������only Adam and hw-wife���������������������������hut the  words came home to them. Oh; God grant'that  they may come home to us, and way we hear  His voice and give our hearts and live* to Wm.  Softly, tenderly, Jesus is calling; oh, sinners,  come home. We may think that God knows  nothing about us, hut, oh, friends, he knows all  about us; ffe knows ouf lives hotter than we  know them; He knows just where we live���������������������������the  house, the street and number. flis eye is ever  watching over us, and tliis is why we should pe  so careful and not do anything that will anger  our God, and then we can alwyas be happy.  I tliink that it would be well for us who profess  to be Christians to ask thc question first, or  rather, let God ask it, Where are wc? What is  our-ptysiti"6h"ih^^  to help our faithful godly minister in his work  among us? Po our family know we arc following Jesus? Po our neighbors know we arc following and serving Jesus? We have been Christians  for many years. Well, what progress are we  making towards heaven? Are we always ready  to give an answer lo every man that asketli us a  reason of thc hope tliat is in us in a liumble way?  How many havc wc had thc pleasure of leading  to Jesus? And if I were to ask the Christians  here  to  stand  up   for   Jesus,   would  you  he  ashamed to do so? And if we were to be cut  down any moment by the hand of death, have  wc good reason to know we would be saved?  Friends, have we found out where we are or  where our God wants us? What are we doing  for the poor and sick and the.sorrowing? Have  we called upon them and told them of Jesus,  the only comforter? Are we, like our Savior,  going about doing good? May God help us to  find out where we are.  .Now," let our minds run back over the past  years of our lives. Would it be consistent for us  to say tliat we are Christians, and would our  lives correspond .with our profession? It is not  so much what we say, but how we live. Actions  speak louder than words. Oh, followers of Jesus,  where are we today? Oh, Christians, where are  we today? Are we bright shining lights in this  dark world? Or are we a dark cloud? Jesus said  that we were to be His living witnesses," known  and nead of all men. Are we standing up for  Jesus, then, as wc should? Arc wc letting our  light shine for Jesus?  If a man is on the Lord's side, let him bc on  the Lord's side. If hc is on thc side of thc world,  let him be on thc side pf the world. Tliis trying  to serve the Lord antf the world at the same time  is the curse of Christianity today. This living n  double life makes the careless doubt Christianity.  come  after mc let him take up his cross and follow mc,  said Christ,  There arc people who think if thcy join a  church and attend once or twice a year that will  be all right. But there is a cross for each onc of  us daily. Oh, children of God, where arc wc? If  God should call us this moment what would we  say? Could we look up into Jesus' face as Peter  did and say, Lord Jesus, Thou knowest I love  Thee, and am serving Thee?  Yes,.there tire people who join thc church and  are never seen there, and when thcy die you  have to get away down in the basement of the  church and turn over a whole lot of dusty old  icords to find out of they were Christians or not.  But,. friends, when Daniel dicd, away down in  that strange land they all knew that he was a  Christian, for the. life he lived told the story.  Oh, if we only had men in our churches and  towns like Daniel, to stand up for all that is pure  and holy���������������������������men who would not defile themselves  with the lusts of tlie world���������������������������then our churches  would flourish and the work of the Lord would  advance.     ��������������������������� .  Yes, friends, there are mahy ways that our God  seeks and calls us to come to Him���������������������������ways that we  cannot understand. , Sometimes a loved one in  our family is taken down with disease; it may be  a loved father or mother, sister or brother, win  or daughter. We see the cold hand of deatth laid  upon them; we see the casket conveyed to the  cemetery awj lowered in the cold grave; we hear  the last solemn word*; then when owr;hearts are  hreaking with sorrow wp hear our God speaking  to us. Tliis lias been my experience on several  occasions.  I read a little article in t\ paper that made a  terrible impression tipm me as a father.  It rea<J:  A father Jk������������������cV ������������������a*f,_ near the sea shore one hnght  sunny day io July, went pat with his little hpy flve  years old, for ������������������ walk. There was a great high hank  overlooking the hay* (surrounded with heautifttl trees  ard flowers, with a high cliff at the edge of the sea  The father sat down with his hack against a tree and  went to sleep. The little h������������������y went flower picking.  Finally the father awakening, thought, Where is my  boy. ffe ran and called,- hut got no answer, and on  going to the edge of the cJiflF saw on tbe rocks below  the body of his sweet child, cold in death. He ran  .around ;_took=the^lifeless^fornuin=his^arm's^and-kissed-  il, all the while accusing himself of being the murderer of his child.  J thought as I read this, What a picture of all of us  fathers and mothers? How many of us, I wonder, are  sleeping and dreaming while our dear children God  has given us are mixing with evil company and are  led astray! Oh, we should be so watchful of the children God has trusted to our care. How many dear  parents have bid good-bye to their boy who has enlisted and gone over to France to sacrifice his life?  How many  dear  mothers  have  clasped their boy in  their amis and kissed him good-bye: yes, and some!  for the last time. You well remember the night that J  all our clear boys went through on their way tof  France. I was at the depot in Armstrong. That night]  I hall never forget, as I saw mothers clasp their]  dear boys to their breast, kissing them, and repeating,!  God bless you, my dear boy! I went home, but I coulcll  not sleep.   I thought, Surely God is calling us to come]  to Him.  Oh, parents of Canada; wheie are your dear boys|  today? Have we followed Jesus so truly that we can!  say to our children, Follow Jesus as we have followed!  Him? Can we say to our children, Are you serving!  Jesus as we have served Him. Have we taken theitil  by the hand and told them of Jesus' love for them *>|  Have we asked them to come to the Lord Jesus Christ  and give their heart to him? Oh, may God wake usj  up, and may we all feel the worth of the children Godl  has given us, and God grant that they may never!  bring our grey hairs down1 with sorrow to the grave. I  Not long ago the daughter of a very wealthy mer-|  chant in the city of Montreal sickened and died. Thc.l  father and mother stood by her bedside the picture oil  despair! She wasQthc only child. Thcy had spent allj  their time accumulating wealth for her. The mother!  had taken hcr to all the leading dances. She was led,]  into all thc fancy society. But they had told heij  nothing of religion or Jesus' love for her. What a sad]  thing! "J  A youhg man lay dying. His bedroom door wa������������������|  open. His mother in passing, heard him repeat thej  word, Lost. She ran in the room; fell on her knees!  at his bedside crying, My son; can it be possible thatj  you have no hope in Christ, now you are dying? Oh,  no, mother, he said, I have a hope beyond the graveJ  but I have lived thirty years of my life and donrt  nothing for my Savior, and now when I am dying,  have given my heart to Him. Friends, would it not be!  said of many of us if God should call us that we have]  lived for self and done nothing for Jesus who has]  done so much for us? Would we not say, "Must I goj  and empty handed, Must I meet my savior so, Not one!  soul with which to greet Him; Must I.empty handed]  go? Oh,-the years of sinning/waisted, Could I but recall them now, I would.give them to my savior, Tc  His will I would gladly bow."

WON* No. 34  4  C. F. fl. License No. 9-34W  The war has taught the world many lessons.  Here is onc of them���������������������������a very practical one, by-the-  way: Prior to thc war display advertising in  newspapers by governments was practically unheard of. Lord Kitchener was. first to authorize  it ih England, for recruiting, and its success, was  phenomenal. Our Canadian government first  tried it to develop the apple{niarketjjbter Jo increase production, and.its success, made news-  paper advertising an essential part of,every campaign requiring the attention of: the. people.. Its  efficiency ih selling Victory- Bonds, was the most  outstanding. Vfl  "With newspaper advertising such'a success in  selling undertakings'" says a writer, "how much  greater must, it he with the everyday merchant  who has something to sell to the; people six days  iu the wee|c. Aud it might he stated right here  that the same principles apply to the same extent  in tlie smaller town as we|} as in the larger city.  fn the city it is thoroughly understood, fnfe  smaller town only a few fully appreciate the. twe  value of advertising along proper lines. Jt is a  matter of education to the point that the .worlh is  fully appreciated, that it means more people in  the store every day, and in consequence more  sales. When that is thoroughly understood1 there  wi|| he no question ahout results. The great  trouble with many businessmen who do advertise is that they wi|| not give it the attention required. They wrate indifferent copy, and get indifferent results.  An Ottawa despatch states tliat the directors of  the Canadian Government Railway System will  lay before the. cabinet for approval tliis week  its construction program for the coming season.  The program consists of (1) List of necessary  rolling stock required to place the C. N. R., Intercolonial and National Transcontinental Railways  in first-class condition. (2) Necessary betterments to existing lines, such as grading, new culverts, bridges, etc. . (3) The construction and  completion of certain branch lines in thc West.  (4) The completion of certain terminals. It is  expected that thc program which will bc adopted  will call for an expenditure of somc fifty million  dollars this year, and will give employment to  fifty thousand men.  In lhis connection it'is important to nolo lhat  our Okanagan Valley Boards of Trade already are urging upon the Government lhc completion of thc Kamloops-Kclowna branch of thc  C. N. R. This branch line would undoubledry  bc a profitable feeder, and would greatly extend  lhc Valley's market for fruit and produce, by  giving direct connection wilh a large section of  the Prairies served exclusively by this road.  The building of this line ncxt year would mean  big business for the Armstrong district in particular. It would greatly increased market facilities, andi encourage the planting and development of larger acreage, by bringing into the district hundreds of homeseekers.

E SAGE     Armstrong, B.C.  Acting Mayor Coltart hit the right note in a  letter to the City Council suhmitted at the last  meeting when he concluded1 with these words:  "While it is our duty as a Council to take the  lead in placing tins matter op a practical footing,  it is not merely a city matter, hut a matter of the  deepest interest and importance to the entire district, including the city, f therefore earnestly  bespeak through you the wholehearted co-operation of every person residing within thc postal  area of Enderby.

And especially at this  season, with our soldiers coming back, and in  view of the' tremendous problems of readjustment and reconstruction with which we arc  faced, let there be no 'limit' to mutual goodwill  and helpfulness."  Mayor Coltart's purpose in writing the Council was to induce some action to be taken in thc  matter of a roll of honor of the men who went  from Enderby and district at the call of the Empire.

Thc idea has  been warmly received uncut lhe  counlry. lhc only (lemur being  the proposed restriction of  whale dairies lo Pugct Sound.  Thrift Magazine lias taken an  almost violent interest in the  project, and remarks:  "If we arc going to bc truly  democratic in this country, let's  would bc a rank and infamous  injustice to let Pugct Sound  havc a monopoly of the national  supply of dairy whales."
