Limited   by  The editor, Okanagan Commoner,  Armstrong, B. C, o  Dear Sir: At the conclusion of  the Victory Loan campaign I wish  to express to you this Committee's  appreciation of your whole-hearted  and effective co-operation. This  campaign probably provides a record in promotion by the press of  a public enterprise. That this sup������������������  port is warmly appreciated is,made  plain by numerous messages which  havc reached this oflJice during and  since the campaign. From the Minister of Finance, from the Chairman of the Dominion Executive,  from the Chairman of Special Committees, and from Provincial Chairmen have come messages of appreciation and thanks. For example,  from Nova ��������������������������� Scotia ��������������������������� comes such a  message as this from' G.S. Campbell,  Provincial Chairman: "Hearty congratulations; work thoroughly appreciated in Nova Scotia0and largely contributed to the success of the  Loan here." This is typical of the  testimony from all over the country- O   -  The campaign began as a war effort. Before it ended war had  ceased. Nevertheless the national  well-being which actuated the press  in giving the campaign such unusual support continued. It is impossible to forecast what will be the  full effect in Canada during the  period' of transition and afterward,  of the splendid success of the Victory Loan floated at a most critical  moment. Its large" service in that  success the press of Canada will always be able to recall with satisfaction. V -  '"'Yours  sincerely,  John  R.  Bone.  Chairman, Press News and Feature Committee," Toronto.  Mr. A. R. Rogers of Minneapolis,  Minn., visited the Okanagan Sawmills this week, accompanied by  Mr. N./A. Morley, of Leavenworth,  Wash., whom he installed as manager of the mill and yards here. Mr.  Morley is one of the most experienced lumber niill managers in the  west. He takes hold of Mr. Rogers'  interests here at a time when the  great reconstruction epoch is setting in, and it is his purpose and  hope to direct operations here so as  to make the local mill gather in its  full share of the increased lumber  business . anticipated the coming  season. Mr. Morley expects to bring  Mrs. Morley and children to Enderby as soon as he can get the manager's residence in readiness for  them. 7  Mr. Lemke will continue as chief  accountant and assistant manager, a  position, faith fully held by him several years under Mr; F. S. Stevens'  management. He" expects Mrs.  Lemke and son to join him at an  early date.

Always of a hopeful turn of mind, he was somewhat  jubilant this -time, and was a carrier of glad tidings to all who had  the good fortune to meet him.  Mr. Rogers was one of the special  commissioners appointed by the  United States government in the  Liberty Loan drives. He had charge  of the great Liberty Loan district  embracing the middle northwestern  states. This work involved tremendous responsibility, and while  the war was on he found little time  to devote to his own business. Mr.  Rogers is taking up again his lumbering interests. He - predicts a  tremendous revival in all business  lines as soon as reorganization is  effected on reconstruction lines.  Every indication points to many  big years for Canada, he says, and  it behooves every business man and  citizen to prepare.  Chinese Opening Hotel.  Thc natural consequences are  coming. When hotels were  forced to go dry, it was predicted that as soon as business  returned to normal we would  have our hotels run by Chinese*  with "hop" joints and washee  houses in connection. This has  come about in many towns in B'.  C. In the Okanagan Valley we  have been exceptionally fortunate in having the better hotels  continued by original owners.  How long this good fortune will  last remains to bc seen. In Enderby this week Chinese lessees  are opening the old Enderby  Hotel, where they will run a sort  of short-order house . with  rooms and = what-nots,, soft  drinks and peanuts on. demand.  -Truly,  we are 1 getting on fast  Leaves For Minneapolis  .-,-  . Mr. D. J. Craig, general secretary of .Mr. A--R-,Rogers' interests, who has "been assisting in  the management' of^ the'-Okanagan  Sawmills-since Manager Lewis left  for the East, Turned to Minneapolis Sunday evening. In,bis brief  stay in Enderby Mr. Craig made a  host of friends by his earnest and  open desire to be of general service  in the hest interests of the community. We had the good fortune  to have him with us when the word  flashed around the world that the  war had ended, and he had the  honor to represent Uncle Sam's  boys at our wee but whizzbang celebration of victory. He -will Jong be  remembered by the grace and wisdom with which he bandied the  chairmanship of that event.^ -  Heavy Summerland Shipments  When the returns from the fruit  exported from Summerland this  season are complete it will be  shown that the fruit shipped from  this ponit will considerably exceed  in value a half million dollars, according to the Summerland Review.  As a matter of fact it is not improbable that our exports will exceed  $600,000. It is but.a few years ago  that the total value was less than  8100,000. Since then there has been  a steady increase in the ^tonnage,  and the prices received show a  marked improvement.  Last year Summerland received,  for her fruit, crop, about $400,000,  according to reliable figures.    This  of water stood on the radiators to,  give off moisture always improve  the conditions for plants. The  blooms xwill last longer when the  atmosphere is kept somewhat cool  and moist. The ideal temperature  ranges from about 50 to 70 degrees.  Higher temperatures necessitate  niore frequent waterings. "Some  plants need to be watered daily,  others not more than two or three  times a week. A pot which rings  hollow when tapped with the  knuckle needs water. Over watering is bad for plants and only one  or two varieties, like the spirea,  will succeed if the pots are allowed  to stand in water. All pots should  be supplied with good drainage in  the form of broken crocks filled  in at the bottom of the pot when  the plants are potted.  Fresh air is always beneficial,  but not in the form of direct  draughts. A temperature of 40 degrees or lower will often seriously  affect the tender house plants.  Palms and ferns are the better for  sponging once or twice a "month.  Neve?"* water a sickly plant too  freely; it more often requires to be  repotted. Most plants will be benefitted by a yearly repotting. Healthy  plants and plants in flower require  much more water than those which  are- sickly. Soil should not be  watered to often that it becomes  soggy and always cold. . A plant  with cold feet ancl hot head soon  dies.  Out on Crutches  After several weeks in ned from  a broken 'leg Mr. Alex Dale is out  on curtches,looking little the worse  for his' painful experience. In a  drenching rain storm some weeks  ago Mr. Dale was loading the mill  year not only has the crop exceeded  machinery of the Deep Creek mill  Commuted  The governor of California has  commuted the death penalty of  Mooney. _Thi s_i s__a_ co ni pr omi sei,_ but  it may be a way of escape from an  impending labor trouble. The governor was asked for a pardon,  those who demanded it claiming  that this would clear the way for a  new trial on other charges by  which the complete innocence of  fhe accused might be established.  It is not clear that commutation  will stand in thc way of such new  trials. But it may well be that the  governor does not desire the slate  to go through such an experience.  that of last year but,the prices ob  tained' have ,also been belter, and  the Review was told ,this week, by  an unquestioned authority on these  matters, that "oilr estimate of'a half-  million dollars for 1918 would be  greatly exceeded. This information  will be'of great interest "to" all rn:  terested in fhe welfare of Summer-  land, but these figures.fall far short  .of the possibilities of the immediate future. \Vith the coming into  bearing of many, young trees, and a'  steady , increase in the crops"from  more of the matured ones, and the  prospects of greatly increased production' of tomatoes, arid other "cannery .stuff, one million dollars is not  too high a goal for the district to set  itself.  The, prices'that, have been  tained   for   its   members   by  Union  show very satisfactory  turns to growers.  ob^  the  rei  Marrying.. French Girls  Ten thousand American soldiers  have married French girls already  since the war began, and more are  expected to follow, acco) ding to  the Rev. Dr. Charles* Stedman.Mc-  Farland, chaplain, who has re-  iurned from the war zone. Dr.-Mc-  Farland made the statement in an  address before-two..���������������������������.hundred members of the New York Advertising  Club a few nights ago.  -.An Awkward Possession  A cabby and a motorbus driver  raced for first place in the block of  traffic, and the .cabby won. He  glanced in triumph at the motorbus  driver, who scowled. "Wot's the  matter wiv you?" asked the cabby  innocently. "Nothink's the matter  wiv me," said the motorbus man.  "Why?" "Well, yer gave me a nasty  look," said the cabby. The motor-  bus man grinned. "Well," he said,  "you certainly 'ave a nasty look,  but I didn't give it yer."  Cumulative Advertising  The one sure way to allow busi-  ness to float away from your town,  Mr. Merchant, and drift into other  channels, is to put your money onto  the tail of the idea that the way to  do business in war times is to discontinue advertising in order " to  curtail^the=overhead=cost-of=doing  business. If all merchants in a  small town, would do likewise for  a period of six months, you.could  nail up the windows and pass out.  Advertising is a cumulative  proposition. When all merchants  advertise, even if they take but a  small space in the home paper, thc  effect of all doing it has a much  greater drawing power than if only  one merchant advertised though he  used greater space than all combined. All merchants do not recognize this.' Thcy arc content to  live on the enterprise of their fellow merchants who advertise in  order to keep thc business that  holds the community together. It  retards the "growth..of the community and creates a leak, in'business that loses monev to all.  for shipment.

It is to--pre--  vent paper waste that the new regulation has been decided on.  .,,   .They-manufacture  of  paper, consumes labor, wood,-coal; chemicals"  and  transportation   facilities, # and  every   ton   of   paper   saved   means,  just so much more labor/ raw materials,- chemicals,   fuel   and   transportation available for urgent war  needs.    For these reasons the Gov-,  eminent insists that paper shall be  saved, and proposes that only those  who    pay    for-  their ��������������������������� publications  shall receive them.  This order will leave the newspaper publishers no'choice in the  matter. W-i must therefore. in'sht  upon all subscriptions to the Commoner being paid up.

The argument that finally induced  Uic. man to move was to thc effect that the motor-  man was a hard-working man and had to get to  the car barn; thc longer he was held there the  longer it would take him to get through with his  work, and would not his brother workman please  get off the track so that he could get tlie car to the  barn? With tliat the "free citizen" politely  bowed, folded his arms and moved off the track,  the crowd dispersed and the cars went on their  way.  TAKING TROUBLES TO BED  [sr ��������������������������� __���������������������������  Undoubtedly thc Censorship Department at Ottawa believes it iter operating in the best interests  of peace and order in following its policy of suppression. But history is full of instances where  .suppression of books, pamphlets,'etc., by governments objecting to their contents has only led to  greater unrest and resentment on thc part of the  people.  Undoubtedly, while thc war was on, there was  some reason for forbiddSng the circulation .in  ���������������������������Canada of certain Gcrmanophilc periodicals. But  to suppress a periodical simply because it docs  not respond lo what, in lhc opinion of the censor,  il should do or say, only tends to increase the fire  of thought and engender hatred. It is not good  policy to attempt lo suppress any thought or argument by placing a ban on thc printed word.  This truth is obvious.  A recent censorship order, placed a ban on all  works issued by the Charles H. Kerr Company, of  Chicago. Undoubtedly this order was intended  to put a stop to tlie circulation in Canada of the  old doctrine of Socialism. But the doctrine of  Socialism is as old as the Bible���������������������������and quite as  sacred to thousands bf good Canadian citizens  many of whom','went from Canada to the fields  of Flanders to fight the battles of the Empire���������������������������  and would go again if need be.  According to the Vancouver Fcdcrationist, the  Socialist organ, "these orders seemed so drastic;  and insane, that it could hardly be credited that  they had been. made. The following wire, received by the Socialist Party of Canada, in reply  to a query by tliat organization, however, dispels  any doubt as to whether they arc banned or not.  If it is carried out, however, there will be an interesting collection of the human family gathered  together in jail:  '"All publications of Charles H. Kerr & Co..  Chicago, were forbidden lo bc in lhc possession  of anyone in Canada by warrant issued by thc  Secretary of State, dated September 30, 1918, and  announced in the Canadian Gazette in the usual  way on October 12, page 1378.���������������������������E.

This is because hc takes his troubles to bed wilh  him and falls asleep worried and depressed. Instead of practicing mental chemistry and neutralizing or driving Ihem out by thc peace  thought, llie harmony and love thoughts, hc lets  those vicious mental devils, that arc playing such  havoc in his life, work all night in his brain.

Admiral Beatty's reply to tlie  commander of the German fleet that surrendered,  when the latter wanted the leader of the-Grand  Fleet to sign a document stipulating the German  crews would not be ill-treated, was typical of the  man" and Ids abiding faith in the country for  which he, and the great instrument he commands,  have foiight so magnificently. German militarism  never believed in the law of chivalry, the word of  honor, or thc scrap of paper. The monstrous  edifice incarnating,;the doctrine of might which  the ex-empcror reared around his throne could  not realize othcr nations are not inspired with the  spirit of revenge. The power "that "now controls  German affairs has inherited the psychology  which deformed the militaristic soul. Its hatred  of Britain is no less pronounced, but this time it  is the hatred of impotence.���������������������������Victoria Colonist.

C. Elford, superintendent of the  poullry division of the Dominion  experimental farm, Ottawa. And he  produces  the   following  figures  to  prove it:  "Canada's   net   national   debt   on  Oct.   31,   19f18,   was   $1,247,000,000.  Wc-have'adopted the slogan 'One  ��������������������������� hundred  hens to every  farm;  ten  hens   to   every    urban    lot.*   That  would mean taking 1,000,00,0 as the  round number of Canadian  farms,  100,000,000 hens in the country and  10,000,000 hens in the cities, towns  and villages, a total of 110,000,000.  Of   course   everybody   in   the   city  could   not   keep   hens,   and   many J  would not even if they could.   But  many people in the suburban districts of the cities, and in the small  towns   and   the   country   villages  could keep more than ten���������������������������twenty,  thirty, fifty,���������������������������seventy-five, perhaps. I  So take an average of ten. . A good (  select hen will produce 200 eggs a;  year.   But taking a low; estimate of |  Vten^dbzen" eggs a year, (120)   for  vc, 110,000,000 hens and <we would prp-  T duceJ i;i<fo;000,000 -fdbzen   eggs   a  ., year. ,  "At the present time JJwe consume  ..in Canada tyventy-three dozen eggs  vip.ei<h>ad of.poeulaUbncpeV;annum.  .  We, could" increase this allowance  to fifty dozen, a total of about 350,-  "���������������������������000,000  dozen.    We .use less than  25,000^000 dozen of our eggs at the  present time for incubation.   Sup-  . pose we increase this to .50,000,000  ��������������������������� dozen.    That would total 400,000,-  000 dozen for, Canadian" consumption, ra.very liberal allowance. We  would  then  have  left  for  export  700,000,000   dozen   at   an \ average  price of say 40 cents per. dozen.  That would bring $280,000,000 per  year into the country from eggs  alone.    The  interest  on  our debt  of $1,247,000,000 at-5%   per cent  will   amount   to   $68,585,000.     We  would pay this interest and apply  a   balance   of   8213,415,000   to   reducing   the   principal   every   year.  Jn less than six years Canada's hens  would wipe out the total monetary  cost of the war to Canada, and our  total net national debt.  "I do not say that Cnaada will do  this. But I say that Canada might  'well aim to dp it, for it is within  the possiblities of what could be  done without undue strain on our  present labor capacity." ,  Control of Weed Seed in Clover  While there are only a few kinds  of weed seeds wliich are commonly  found in red clover seed in quantities sufficient to cause it to be prohibited from sale under the Seed  Control Act, it is yet very, necessary  that the seed for sowing be as pure  as possible. It is not easy to say  how ntuch damage to soil and injury to live stock may be caused  by impurities in red ^clover seed.  For this reason "Pamphlet S-2" prepared by the Dominion Seed Analyst, and just issued by the seed  branch of the department of agriculture, Ottawa, is one that should  command wide and general attention from farmers. The Seed Control Act prohibits the sale of red  eighty seeds of noxious' weeds or  eighty seds of noxious weeds or  400 of all kinds of'weed seeds per  ounce.' The pamphlet referred to,  which can be had free on application to the Publications Branch, Ottawa, tell of the maximum number  of .weed, seeds per ounce that are  permitted in the different crops of,  alfalfa, timothy, red clover and the  like, and describes with exactitude  the".steps that are necessary :to purify the seed. Information is given  of the relative prevalence of weed  seeds; .of the method of eradication  of weeds,-,and regards testing, and  instructions forftaking and sending  to the Branch to be tested. A series  of exact illustrations of the commonest weed seeds and. of ^sieves  necessary, for their removal...are,  given in the pamphlet.

The old orttcr has passed away, said JMr. Lloyd  George, in opening the great election campaign  which is now on in England. In a general way  those words have been used many times, -with  exceedingly little meaning, by political speakers.  They have become, indeed, almost -a hackneyed  expression of the platform. But as Mr. Lloyd  George used them the other day, they obtain a  new and tremendous significance. The old  order was burnt up in Armageddon. The world  is faced with a new order today. What the new  order will be it is for the world to say, for it will  reflect the consciousness of the" world, in the  different states of the'world. It is a tremendous  hour when patriotism demands from every  country the best it has to give- Ahd. by patriotism the sane man does not mean the waving of  flags or the shouting of hectic .sentiments; the  appeals of wainglory or the intrigues of 'political  parties, he'"means that recognition of Principle  in the government of thc state, which can alone  make a country great, and maintain its greatness. Mr. Lloyd is right; the old order has  passed away.  This does not mean that all peoples realize  that it has passed away. Indeed, now that the  war is practically over, wc sec peoples and nations going back to thc old piaccs to put on the  old clothes they wore before the holocaust broke.  For tlie most part the world is lost. It lias not  found itself ni the sense of the new order of  things. People have not sensed their position in  thc new order. But they will. Much can be accomplished in a very short time when the  efforts of the people arc properly directed: Wc  havc only to recollect whal was accomplished in  war to realize what will be done in peace when  the reconstruction period is fairly started. Just  now wc are betwixt peace and war���������������������������the period  of uncertainty, when anything but the lookcd-  for might happen. This period may last two or  three months.    It is the critical period of peace.  Men who are wise will utilize this time in  tightening up the nuts on all bolts in the machine of business���������������������������whether it be commercial or  .floriculture, lumber or mining, artisan or manufacture. .There will come a time immediately  following tlie present period, when men will be  worked at white heat to keep the machinery up  to production demands. There can be no slump  permitted now if we are to be ready to handle  things in a big way then.  Armageddon is over so far as the military  trenches are concerned, but Armageddon is only  beginning so far as the political and commercial  trenches are concerned. All that tliis means the  world���������������������������you and I���������������������������must rouse itself to understand, and must rouse itself without delay. *  "The 014 Order J������������������������������������* Pawed Away"  Men���������������������������particularly church men���������������������������used to think  that it was a man's belief concerning a dogma  that fixed his place in eternity. Tbis was Jjecausc  men helieved God was a grumpy, grouchy old  gentleman, stupid, touchy an4 dictatorial. A  really good man would not damn another even  if hc did,n't like him. hut a bad man would. Ami  so men thought and taught that God was a jealous God and carried damnation from generation  to generation of them that did not fear Him.  And, believing this of God, men naturally acquired the evil habit themselves, and so they  carried hatred on through generations'*.  As men's ideas of God changed, men themselves changed for the better. In other words, as  men thought better of themselves and of each  square dealing, one price to all.. The change only  came after a struggle, and we are not quite sure  of tlie one price at all times yet . But we have  gotten thus far, tliat the man who cheats in trade  is tabu. Honesty as a business asset is fully recognized. If you would succeed in business you  can't afford to sell a man something he does not  want; neither can you afford to disappoint him  in quality any more than in count.

Doctors are thc only professional men  who still cling to the obsolete idea. Today thc  nnon-advertising bank is like thc non-advertising  merchant. Both belong to thc gloomy, unfrequented museum of llasbccnville. Thc genius of  advertising for "getting thc money" was recently  exemplified by the success of Canada's Victory  Loan. Nearly seven hundred millions was the  amount raised. How was it done? Advertising.  Today thc greatest banks in thc country advertise. Thcy employ publicity experts. Those  experts create many forms of "literature"���������������������������somc  wonderful, some indubitably fearful. Probably  a good deal of money is wasted by banks and 1  other enterprises in what is fondly imagined to  l>c advertising. But it isn't advertising. Beautiful brochures, handsome booklets, lovely calendars, "polished" letters, all these may bc "literature," but. thcy are not advertising.  Just what is advertising? It is telling people  things wliich it is their interest and your interest  to know. It is of no practical moment how elegantly or eloquent those things arc said if the  people don't hear them: A Caruso singing in thc  wilderness, with no one hearing him except himself, enthralls nobody but himself. Advertising,  it should lL>c remembered, has other functions besides getting money. Jt is the shortest distance  between the two points bf desire and accomplishment.

"The Old Order Has Passed Away"  A few hundred years ago business was transacted mostly through fairs, ship and by pedlers.  Your merchant of tliat time was a peripatetic  rogue who reduced prevarication to a system.  The booth gradually evolved into a store, with  the methods'and customs of the irresponsible  keeper intact: the men cheated their neighbors  and chuckled in glee until their neighbors  cheated them, which, of course, thcy did. Then  they cursed each other/began again and did it all  over again. We've all heard of the deacon John  Quincy Adams used to tell about who kept a store  near Boston,-who always added in the year 1775,  at the top of a column, as seventeen dollars and  seventy-five cents.  The"ampunt of misery, grief, disappointment,  shame, distress, woe, suspicion and hate, caused  by a system wliich wrapped one thing when the  .buyer expected anolhcr, and took advantage of  his innocence and ignorance as to quality and  value, cannot hc computed in figures. Suffice it  to say that duplicity in trade has had to go. Thc  seU'-prcscrvation of the race demanded honesty,  "Tht OW Order Ha* Vwm4 Awsy"  ^et us heed the warning given in tbe ������������������. C.  Veterans Weekly: "Tbe war in Europe> over  and the time to sound a note of warning i"  Canada has arrived," it says. "If preparations  are not made serious trouble will ensue!  "Tliis may be considered a revolutionary dissertation, but it is a true and necessary statement. It must be remembered the strain of years,  or even months, of fighting has put a raw edge  on thc men's nerves; they are not so susceptible  to reason and diplomacy as those who have not  been througli the helUshncss of war. Tbe greater  number wili"rcturni uhwouhd^lrburtheirnerNcs^  will be impaired; they have been keyed up to the  highest pitch, and like a runner, who maintains  his strength until he breasts the tape and then  collapses, the reaction will set in when the need  for endurance is over. Wliilst in this state, which  often lasts for many months, injustice is likely  to result in some deplorable action; and tbe men  will not be to blame, but the country which, by  its unpreparedness, goads tlie men to action to  arouse it to a sense of its responsibility.  "Many a father, who looked.upon the rumblings of the threatened storm as the vaporings of  irresponsible soreheads, have been rudely awakened to the danger by their o\vn sons, whom they  considered incapable of expressing such sentiments.  "Tlie danger in Europe is past, but the danger  in Canada is ahead! The manhood of the nation  has helped to save civilization and is prepared  to serve the country as loyally in peace as in war,  but the country must do its duty; and before it  can perform that duty it must'realize its obligations. Be just to the men who have served you  well, for they will accept nothing less! The'.war  is over and the country rejoices at the "sheathing  of thc sword,' but do not forget what you owe  the men who have given you the victory; do not  forget some havc lived to come back to enjoy  peace also, and that the eulogistic praises of their  services will be a hollow mockery that-will be as  much a term of derision as that of the 'contemptible lillle army' is to the ex-Kaiser, if Canada  fails in its duty to them. And do not forget that  if any trouble occurs a warning note has been  sounded." ..,...-   ...       . m        . <.:   -.

WORK IN RE-CONSTRUCTION  ing their proper functions. History tells us that  'the death.of party' is,the origin of faction. This,  to my mind, is the principal cause of our general  uncertainty and apprehension today. The school  of Liberalism, as known and understood, would  not appear to be able to render very useful service, for the present at all events, in tlie pressing  and necessary work of reconstruction and the  restoration of confidence."

As with all agricullural production, the war  has been the means of vastly stimulating the live  stock industry in thc Dominion. This has resulted principally from thc demand for meats for  Lhe armies and thc civilian population of Great  Britain ancl her Allies. The export of beef .from  this country has increased 6.795 per cent over  the average total annually exported in the four  years preceding thc war. In the case ;of-bacon  and pork products ihe increase has been:571 pci1  cent. .   " . '-  .

Sir Herbert Hqlt made the-fore-  grasshopper propels'himself into the air he may  not know where he is going to land, but he knows  that when he does land he is going into business  for himself ahd not for somc apiarist- When thc  bee starts out for hcr load of honey shc is in the  same frame of mind as tlie collector, starting out  to collect a bill.

X To Zion Church Congregation X;  X- Bv the Minister X '���������������������������  X " ��������������������������� -      *  X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X  A timely communication came to  hand recently from the B. C. members of the Assembly of Fifty calling attention to a value that might  accrue to our congregations during  the closure caused by the epidemic.  The most important item in the, forward movement now being  launched all over Canada is a new  and deeper study and practice of  prayer. If this were allowed because of influenza it would be  worth all that it is costing to  churches in the loss of revenue and,  the cessation of all our church activities. And thus would we once  more conquer through Christ an untoward event.  The main theme that would be  employing our - minds if our services were heing held would he tbe  establishing of the kingdom of God  ���������������������������the great task of our Master. The  crisis of today is such that if  directed by Wmi, we shall make  long advances toward its attainment. This is a worthy subject for  our prayer. Especially let us ask  that divine guidance be given at th*  coming peace conference and all  associated gatherings, that it iiay  not sow the seed of future discord.  And for the period of reconstiu---  tio_n _in _our _comittiinit>^ and evcry-  where. JCetus pray forHel i Vifr a rice"  from our prejudices; and for the  spirit of comradeship to prevail  over all privilege and sectionalism.  As we meditate on these thngs I am  sure that we shall see that they are  of first importance in the establishment  of God's  kingdom.
