Association  Enjoys Another Evening of  Fun and Exercise  Another successful meeting of  \%he Armstrong Athletic Association was carried off last Friday  [*t  thc Drill Hall, and  the increased attendance was certainly  [Very encouraging, although the  [grown-ups were not so much in  [evidence as was expected.   How-  lever, that is easily accounted for  |by a rumor that seems to have  Jound its way round to thc effect  [that this affair is only for the  [benefit of schoolboys.    Let this  fat once be emphatically denied.  [The committee  are quite  prepared to handle boys and girls,  [men and women, and what is  fjnore, they are expected to come.  jThc intention of thc committee  lis that this association shall be-  l.tonie the parent of every move-  jnieiit in athletics in Armstrong,  [and all who are interested in  [any kind of sport and exercise  [should enroll under its banner.  Since thc last meeting several  lew pieces of gymnastic apparatus have been' installed in the  iJHall, and as time goes on this  [will be added to as soon as funds  [are available, concerning which  [matter thc committee expect no  I very great difficulty once tlieir  needs arc known.    As soon as  [.citizens  of  a  more - diversified  character     have    made     their  [wishes known to the committee  |'we expect to make provision for  las' manys different classes ,and  U'Jr-y-way of giving the members,  [an incentive to .train it is inten-  raed���������������������������'���������������������������- to -organize .successive,  [gnules of efficiency in the var-  Uqus branches^of sport, the entry  ppto which grades, >yillhe distin?:  [guished by a badge that designates th? wearer's.degree of effi-  iciency.    THev>efcrefary .says:  rc'PJease everyone that is inter-  lested in any degree; come fa the  [rjall next Friday. We can promise you a great deal of real fun,  [gratis, that will majte the blood  [bum in your veins and lighten  ronr step   hy  a   good   many  )ounds.

There arc already instructresses  lin view and no effort will bc  [grudged   by   thc   committee  if  called upon to help thc ladies get  started.    7 p.m.  Trophies from France  Canada's Great War Exhibit,  [under the auspices of tlie Do-  jminion Government, has just  [arrived on tlie Coast from Calvary, ancl will be shown at Vancouver, Feb. 12 to Mar. 1, inclusive. Ten thousand persons saw  [llie exhibit daily at Calgary, a  Barge- number revisiting it sev-  Ibral-times.  \ Returned men say that if one  [has any imagination at all that  [a week can be spent going  [through the exhibit,"for it gives  [a more realistic picture of the  hardships, suffering and gallantry of the Canadian troops in  France than the best war stories  ever written.  Among the trophies and war  exhibits shown are such tilings  as the Gcrman one-man tank,'  the famous French "75's," Ger-  man, Russian,. English, French  and American machine guns,  the remains of a Zeppelin, small  arms used by the Allies and the  enemy, a complete German infantryman's outfit, munitions of  all descriptions, a Gcrman airplane with two mounted machine guns, German trench  mortars, German bomb throwers, and thc most remarkable  set of life-size photographs ever  taken anywhere.  The pictures were secured by  thc Canadian official photo-'  graphers on No Man's Land as  the Canadians rushed to the attack on Thelus village, the second objective in the course of  the historic campaign on Vimy  Ridge. The different phases of  this battle are faithfully recorded in a, long succession of.  photographs. An immense-sized  picture of Vimy Ridge is shown,  and the entire series presents in  vivid and.never-to-be forgotten  manner an impression of the  splendor of this magnificent victory of Canadian arms.  Ruby Earlier than Marquis  A new wheat named Ruby.JJis  reported to have been developed  at the Central Experimental Station, OttawaV. It is a selection  front ttie^ progeny o{ a cross Ke^  tween ..Downy ..Riga ' and. ned  Fife.-- Ruby Wheat ripens, as<a;  rule, a week earlier than Marquis. The kernels are somewhat  similar to those of Red Fife, being hard and of the popular reddish brown color. The heads are  beardless. The.straw in most'lo-  ealities is rather shorter than  Marquis, and of good strength  In yield it produces slightly less  per acre than Maquis.  Experiments carried on at the  Central and other ������������������xpeimental  farms have shown that the soil  and climate in Pritish Columbia*  the southwest part of Ontario,  the valley of the St. Lawrence,  and the Maritime Provinces are  suitable, for fibre flax production.

(  The concerted action of the  Enderby Hospital Board and  Nurse McPherson of the past  year has accomplished all- that  was hoped for when thc members of the Board were appointed a year ago; and at the  annual meeting to be held this  month, the report of the president and secretary will show  tlie most favorable results of  any year in the history of the institution.  The success of the Board in '  obtaining the government grant  is largely, if not >vholly, due to  the   patient-day   records   kept  by   Nurse   McPherson,   whose  management of the hospital has  been most efficient and painstaking.   To her is due the gratitude of the citizens of Enderby,  for when the hospilal was closed  a year ago and the old Hospital  Board found itself in difficulty,  and in v the face of various demands for big salaries on the  part of trained nurses seeking  the position of matron, Mrs. McPherson   offered .to   open   the  hospital and. conduct it for the  board at no salary and to keep  it going on the "hospital fees paid  by patients cared for.

Ferris, silo demonstrator, writing in tlie  Agricultural Journal, says:  "During the past year the work of this branch  was carried on in some cases into districts which  were difficult to reach through lack of transportation facilities. Two silos were built in the Cariboo  country, more than 180 miles north of Ashcroft.  The men who built these silos have erected  modern dairy bams, purchased pure-bred dairy  stock, and hope to be the means of the farmers in  this part of thc Province adopting'up-to-date  methods, so that it will bc possible to have a cooperative creamery established at Quesnel.  "The Salmon River Valley stretches into the  mountains away from the railroad for thirty-  eight miles west of Armstrong. A silo was built  at Falkland, about half-way up the valley, and  the filling demonstration was well attended.  Manv of thc farmers in this district are including  a silo in their programme for increased development during 1919. Altogether eleven silos were  erected and seven filled during the past season.  Silos were built at Gordon Head, Alexandria,  near Quesnel, Strawberry Vale, Procter, Hill-  bank, Chemainus, Malakwa, Wilkinson Road,  and Albert Head; filling demonstrations being  held at Keremcps, Kamloops, Albert Head, Falkland, Procter, Summerland, and Lytton.  "There are two districts in British Columbia  where the farmers have not yet realized the advantage,of using silage to feed their livestock. I  refer to the large tract of Jand which is being developed adjoining the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, and also the district around the east end of  the Kootenay Lake, Creston and Cranbrook.  There is a very large growth bf forage ia the  north, due to a plentiful rain-supply, and when  the grains fail to mature, or rain interferes with  the haymaking, the silo would take care of the  crops. In the southern section they have a warm  dry climate during thc growing season and such  crops as corn and alfalfa produce heavily. Summer silage could be fed in this district to advantage; in fact, it would be necessary from an  economic standpoint to use silage in many cases  throughout the year. JEducational work is being  carried on in these districts, and at present three  applications have been received for silos for 1919.  "Greater interest is being shown by the farmers  in the feeding of silage to beef stock. Silos have  been built in soveraf places this 'year to provide  succulent feed for cattle that, as a rule, have been  fed principally on dry hay during the winter. Several of the larger stock-ranches are at present  consdering the advisability of using silage when  wintering their stock. Steers wintered in the  Vernon District brought a good market price in  the early part of last year. Silos would be useful  to those ranchers who are directly interested in  the development of the ftulkley Valley and the  Nechako districts as a stock-raising country.  "One of the strong arguments advanced against  building a silo is the expense of machinery for  filling. In 1917 a silo was built and filled under  the supervision of the Department of Agriculture's representative at Willow Point, near Nelson. Last year five more silos were built by farmers in this locality, the largest being 9 x 27 feet.  These were all filled with corn by a machine  wliich was co-operatively owned by farmers in  this district. Interchange of labor saved cash expenditure for help. These men, who arc each  ;keeping-a-fcw-head-of-dairy-stock-as=-a-side=line_  on their fruit-farms, have proved that by co-operation it is profitable to build a silo 8 x 20 feet.  Many of our farming communities are so placed  in thc Interior that a community silo-filling outfit would bc a good solution to the expensive machinery problem. The machine is only to be  used once or twice in the year, and by working  together an improved co-opciativc spirit should  grow among"the farmers.    ������������������  "There has been a large increase during the  past year .in thc number of silos in the Province.  The system which has been followed during the  last lour years by the Live Stock Branch of the  Department of Agriculture, of assisting in the  building and filling of silos in new districts, has  introduced them into thc majority of our fanning communities.' Up to the present ten silos  havc becn buill and eleven filling, demonstrations.  held in farming districts near the main line of  the Canadian Pacific Railway. From Enderby  south to Pcnliclon, including the Okanagan, nine  silos havc been erected mid the filling demonstrations have been well attended. From Revel-  is loke sou Hi, six havc bcen built in the Arrow  Lakes Districl. and other farmers havc buill and  are con lem plating building si]os this year  have been placed al different points in lhe Columbia Valley and six in thc Fraser Valley. Many  of the olher valleys on the Mainland havc been  visited, and a silo has becn built, and filled in  order lo leave a practical lesson of the benefits to  be obtained by feeding silage.   Fifteen silos havc  adjacent islands  demonstrations  three, silos and also held fifty-one filling demonstrations. Ontario is the only Province in Canada  that has more silos per capita than British Columbia. By maintaining the present rate of progress this honor will be annexed by this Province  in the hear future. ;  "Those farmers who have their silo to assist  them through the, winter of 1918-19 are better,  able to meet the demands upon their finances."

THURSDAY, FEB. 13, 1919  PRACTICAL LAND SETTLEMENT  OPEN INDIAN RESERVE  The argument advanced at the Enderby City  Council meeting Monday night in favor of the  government taking over the Spallumcheen Indian reserve land and-reselling it at a reasonable  charge seems  to be most convincing. . The pur  chase of the land from the Indians by the govern  ment would preclude the possibility of the land  getting into thc hands of speculators, and would  also assure the Indians of getting every dollar due  Ihem.    There is no question about  tlie Indians  being agreeable to sell the land if they can-get  -what they consider an equitable price, and tlie  purchase   of   the  property   by   the   government  would moke available several thousand acres of  the best agricultural land in the Dominion, most  favorably situated and at a price to the returned  man going on it that would assure him of immediate profit on the purchase price.  The land would give immediate returns for the  work put upon it. There would be no long period of waiting for water to be laid on and the  ���������������������������enormous cost that this entails, and the location,  of the men would be so convenient to transportation and the advantages of an established buying  centre. Conveniently situated between Enderby  and Armstrong, well -watered and much of it under cultivation, this reserve land would be ideal  for a returned soldier settlement, and there would  be no irrigation charge in perpetuity against it.  Whether the movement launched at Monday,  night's-council meeting accomplishes the object  sought or not, it is well worth the effort made to  bring it about. Sitting down and-waiting for  somebody to do something will get us nowhere.  Only by united effort'can we advance the interests of the community and hold up our end in the  general movement forward in the reconstruction  period.  The land settlement policy of the government  in connection with thc returned soldiers does not  seem to meet with the approval of the men it is  supposed to assist. They resent the idea of being  sent away into the wilds, far from the market  centres and market facilities and put upon land  which has been passed up for years by men looking for homesites. They do not want to get out  of touch with the populated centres, and they demand facilities as to markets that will place them  on an equal basis with producing farmers.  Hence they are not viewing with any great  amount of enthusiasm the latest proposal of the  government in connection with tlie Southern  Okanagan land0 scheme. This land was passed  over bv hundreds if not thousands of landbuvers  SOME LOVELY FABRICS FOR SPRING  Send  for Samples  CREPES  WHITE VOILE  in the balmy days of land speculation when peo  ple   were   Hocking   into   the   Okanagan   seeking  WILL DEPORT UNDESIRABLES  n  A report from the Director of Internment Operations show, that there are at,the various camps  thoughout Canada 2,222 enemy:.aliens, of whom  1,700 are Germans and tlie remaining 522 Austrian and other enemy nationalities.    Practically,  all of them belong to the laboring class.   Of .the  1,700 Germans, 800 were transferred from the  West Indies and are held at the request of the  British Government.  The Dominion Government has decided that all  enemy interned prisoners who may he regarded  as dangerous or undesirable shall be repatriated  with thc least possible delay. The Minister of Justice has therefore been auhtorizd under the authority of the War Measures Act to direct the expulsion, removal, or deportation from Canada of all  undesirable interned aliens. It has been ascertained through thc Colonial Office that repatriation is now possible of a number not exceeding  onc hundred adult males. .  , Enquiries* will at once bc made of the British  Government as to what deposition is to be made  of thc 800 men who were transferred from the  West Indies.  The property of interned prisoners will remain  ^subjcct^to^lhe^regulations^a nd^powers^conferred"  as heretofore. The restitution or ultimate disposition of such property will depend on the stipulations of tlie treaty of peace. In cases where the  money of alien prisoners is in thc hands of the  homes.   How much of it is arable land and how  much is worthless we have not seen stated in public, but in conversation with men who have been  over it and believe thcy know, we'learn that much  of the acreage bought by the government-is not fit  for cultivation and never will be.   Tlie land was  placed on the market years ago by a company of  promoters.   It did not sell.   The price asked per  acre is said to have bcen too high.   What would  be a fair price per acre then and now is rather  doubtful.   We have heard it put as low as thirty  cents!    One thing is certain, not an acre of the  land will be arable until irrigation is put upon it,  and Premier Oliver states that he is going to ask  the. legislature to appropriate a million dollars to  put on the water.   A wise government.   We have  not. at hand the exact price per acre paid by the  government for this land, but if our information  is correct the price was far in advance of.the  land's actual value.   And higher, too, than anyone, even an experienced hand, can pay and farm  the land at a profit.    Add to this the additional  cost of laying water on the land-^-a million dollars now and perhaps another million before tlie  work is actually accomplished, and where docs  thc returned soldier get off"?    The price will be  so high the men will not touch it.    Even, a; re-,  turned man declines to tie himself to. a millstone  that willJrequire all he can earn all the earning  days of his life, and in the end load upon his  family a perpetual annual irrigation charge. Tlie  land must bear the cost of putting the .water on,,  and the returned man who buys the viand from,  the government must in the end pay for it.  Is this practical land settlement?.

In this connection, would it not be a good thing  for the district if an automobile association were  organized with a combined membership taking in  Armstrong and Enderby?

At a meeting of the Kelowna  Automobile and Good Roads Association, the following was recommended as a scheme for the  general improvement of the  roads in the Okanagan from Enderby to the Boundary country.,  : It isv suggested that the Provincial Government borrow one  million dollars, wliich sum  would be sufficient to put in first  class/shape the main roads, approximately, 400)Omiles.

On and after Thursday,  Feb. 20, the last forms of The Commoner will go  to press Wednesday night. This will enable us to  catch all early Thursday mails and will bc a great  convenience to many of our subscribers who,  hitherto havc had to wait until Saturday for their  paper owing to thc rural mails leaving Armstrong  before our publication hour.

With this section of  road completed Kelowna and North Okanagan  would have direct connection through to the  Boundary country, linking up with several other  important roads.  be macadamized.  The initial expenditure of this  sum of money would put our  main roads in such a condition  that with a little repair every  year they would last for many  years. Under such a plan the  annual appropriations by the  legislature could be spent on the  outlying sections which should  if properly handled keep them  in good shape; whereas at pres-  ent=4he-nioney-4s-spent-a-little-  Jiere and a little-there and does  no permanent good.  To pay back this million dollars it is suggested that each motor vehicle pay a yearly license  of $15. With the estimated number of cars and trucks by Jan. },  J92L to be not less than 5,000  tbis would yield a revenue of  $75,000. Of this amount approximately $60,000 would Ikj required to pay interest, while the  balance, $15,000, which with the  increase in thc number of motors would annually become  larger, coukl be applied on the  sinking fund and before the  road is worn out pay the whole  debt.  Why should this scheme >apr  peal to the motorist? Tlie average mileage for each car per  year is 4,500 miles. Tires are  guaranteed to run 3,500, miles,'  tires tlie average cost per car is  estimated at $100 a year, which  cost would be cut. in two with  hard roads! The- annual average  consumption of gas per car is  300 gallons, which could easily  be yrednced }Q per cent if all  roads were hard surfaced. There  would also be a saving in oil to  say nothing of tne peace of min$  the motorist would" derive.

Nothing of sorrow or time knew we,  There on the road to Nowhere.  Blossomed the hedgerow, blossomed the tree;  Hearts were merry, and light, and free,  Happy the laughter of you and me.

Dillon, who is rightly described as the  world's greatest journalist, in a despatch from  Paris on Wednesday utters a warning regarding  the danger of the. prevailing unrest amid which  Germany is growing stronger.   Here is what hc  says:  "Hard fighting is going on in Siberia; victory  and defeats havc just been rcporledfrom the Caucasus; battles between Bolshevisms and peace  lovers are raging in Esthonia; blood is flowing in  streams in the Ukraine. The Poles and Czecho-  Slavs have only iioav signed an agreement to  sheath swords until the Conference announces its  verdict. The Poles and the Germans, the Poles  and the Ukrainians, thc Poles and the Bolshevists  arc still decimating each other's forces on territorial fragments of what was once Russia, Germany or Austria. Meanwhile the Peace Conference is secretly debating the conditions on which  these peoples shall forget their enmity and live  in friendship on a basis of mutual trust and  give and take."  And then he goes on to point out that Germany  has almost recovered her balance.    Spartacism  he avers is practically snuffed out.   A powerful  army has been concentrated on the Polish frontiers commanded by,Field-Marshal von Hindenburg.   He alludes to the fact that the kaiser's adherents have given signs of life and congratulated the ex-War Lord on the anniversary of  his birth.   Provision has been made, he says, for  the  union  of  German-Austria  with  the  other  Germans and the entire Teuton race is "gathering  strength for the tournament in Paris where its  champions hope to win the peace after having  lost the war.   Already the German population has  made an excellent impression on the Allied soldiers, especially the Americans there, and  the  longer peace is postponed the more formidable  Gcrmany will bficome, not in armies, but in unsuspected sources of strength."���������������������������Victoria Colonist.  ��������������������������� An announcement has just been made of the  appointment of George H.

"To thc overage citizen it probably appears that  if thc final shock of a general strike comes he  would bc better off with a sack of potatoes, a sack  of flour, a couple of gallons of coal oil, and good  strong muscles in his legs, than with an overload  of worries and a confused mind. Hence, if the  strike is all there is to tlie situation, the average  citizen can well afford to stick to his knitting., do  the best hc can with his hampered facilites and  quit worrying, in confidence that somebody,  somehow, Avill 'do something.'  "The helplessness of the unorganized ��������������������������� public  when its regular routine is disturbed is pitiable.

Sharpe  Wholesale and Retail Butcher  Enderby  above I would adduce three facts:  (1) Tlie "seven times" of Jewish tribulation  and Gentile domination���������������������������the seven prophetic  years, 7 x 360���������������������������2520���������������������������ran out in 1914���������������������������606 before Christ to 1914 after Christ.  (2) The smashing of the nations began in  1914, promptly at the time appointed.  (3) Events moved swiftly, and Jerusalem  was at last delivered from the unholy feet of the  Turk. According to Christ's own word (Luke 21;  24) the "times of the Gentiles" are now fulfilled.  For He said: "Jerusalem shall be trodden down  of the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are  fulfilled." Jerusalem is now honored and kept  safe and open for the return of God's sacred people to their own land.  The fighting period of Christ's world empire  surely began in 1914.  What can we learn from Scripture of this great  fighting period that is now upon us?  - (1) .'It will be rapid. When a stone rolls down  a mountain side and falls on a brittle, image, it  does its work rapidly. The subsequent pounding  of the fragments may occupy some time, but the  whole picture is one of swiftness and unrestrained energy.  (2) It will be thorough. The fragments will  be broken so small that the wind will carry them  away like chaff, but unlike tlie chaff which always finds a lodgment somewhere, no place shall  be found in the earth for the pounded particles of  this great image. Could words express thoroughness more powerfully?  (3) It will be discriminating. Not everything  in our Christian civilization will be broken in  pieces. There are some things amongst usr'that  will not even be shaken. (Heb. 12; 26, 27) "Yet  once more I shake, not the earth only, but also  heaven. And this word, yet once more, signifieth  thc removing of things that are shaken as if  things that are made, that those things that cannot be shaken may remain." There were things  planted at Sinai, and at Calvary, and at Pentecost, living things that have been watered and  growing through the centuries since, and these  things will, not he shaken. They, will stay, and  share ithe fortunes ^ofVthe* stone,, growing and  growing together, until He and they "shall'fill'the  whole earth." o -.  (4) The great drive of this kingdom, and of  the conquering King in the midst of it is against  "the oppressor."' "He shall break in pieces the  oppressor," and in such small pieces! "for the  oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the  needy, now will f arise, saith the Lord, unci set  bim in safety from him that puffeth at him-!' This  now" |s an actual "nowV. in a new sense, for the  time, the ripe time, has come. :   " -  A further God-given knowledge of the great  patrons of tins fighting period can he obtained  from the Second psalm. Those interested please  get your Bibles and follow it. Verses Jt-3 give the  present attitude of the Jungs and rulers of the  world toward this Jving of Icings. Verses 4-7 give  JJeaven's attitude toward this JCing of kings..  Verse* 8 in three,words gives the power that is tP  put Him in possession of His God-given inheritance, and that is prayer; not His prayer for His  people, but His people's prayer for Him. Verse 9  tells what He will dq. with this world, when in  answer-to^His=pcople?s-prayerr=He^is-puHn-pos-  session. "He will rule them with a rod of iron,  and dash them in pieces like a, potter's vessel."  This is our meelc ahd lowly Jesus! 3ut the breaking must be done before He can build. Verses 10-  \2 gives the calm, stern counsel of this King of  Kings to all the rebellious Icings and rulers ;in the  earth. It means this: "3c wise in time; swiftly  and completely surrender, or perish." Tlie work  has begun. How many "kings" have "perished"  already!  That the power through which all this is done  is prayer is seen in tlie 8th verse of Psalm 2, referred to above. "Ask of me, and I will give thee  thine enemies for thine inheritance.'" It is seen  also in two wonderful verses, Dan. 7; 17,18. These  verses lie right alongside of Nebuchadnezzar's  dream, only the periods are represented by four  beasts instead of four parts of the great image.  Thc fighting period of Christ's kingdom is given  in verse 18,���������������������������"But the saints of the Most High  shall take thc kingdom, and possess thc kingdom  powcr, even for ever and ever." But thc prayer  that takes possession of Christ's inheritance for  Him has nothing feeble ahout it. It is the prayer  that knows God's purposes and promises, and  takes a Jacob grip for thc fulfilling.of thc same'  This is the sort of prayer we find in Psalm .149.  It begins in. praise and then goes out in.power  that "binds" enemies and "executes the judgments written." Notice tliis is a prayer battle  that can be fought "upon our beds." (Psa. 149:  5, 6.)  I think that some of my readers will see witb  me that Jesus Christ is even now acknowledged in  ourselves under the teaching of the Holy Spirit  that we may unite in taking possession of His inheritance for Him. Let us know God's purposes  and pray boldly for their fulfilment.    %  I am not expecting that God's saints shall be  snatched out of the world. O no! The world  never needed thein so much as now. But I am  looking that we shall be so drawn into wedded  oneness with Jesus Christ that "the least among  us shall be as David, and the royal leaders among  us as Jesus Christ Himself." I am looking for  the actual and speedy fulfilment of each word in  John 17; 22,23. Look at that! That prayer shall  be fulfilled and the earth shall be won for Christ.  For further Scripture light study Psa. 110, Isa.  2, and 11, and especially Rev. 19. In that we have  the marriage of the Lamb, and the going forth of  the Bridegroom and Bride to conquer the whole  world.Mab. 4th is also very illuminating. It was  very partially fulfilled at Christ's first coming, but  it is going to be amply fulfilled now.  People are talking about the Reconstruction.  But One who is Mighty has undertaken that. It  will be a "new heaven and a new earth" when He  has seen it through. I cannot help fearing that  the world is not yet broken enough to be ready  for the upbuilding.. But He knows.���������������������������Anna Ross,  in Montreal Weekly Witness.  ESTABLISHED     1872j  bamk;0;'fhamiltON:.

Hayes, Armstrong  )  FACING WNPS TW3Y PJEP TO HOW  Canadian soldiers wbo gave up their lives for  their country on -the battlefields of France and  Flanders will be, as tbey fought, together, facing  the line they died to bold. Comrades in life,  they will be comrades in death.  The Imperial War Graves Commission, of  which Sir George Perlcy, representing Canada,  was a member, has issued its report to the various governments of thc Empire, thc following  memorandum on which is issued by the Militia  Department:  Among othcr matters which were discussed  by thc Imperial War Graves Commission were  two  important  questions:  1. Thc bringing into cemeteries of thc bodies  buried in isolated graves on the battlefields.  2. Thc exhumation of bodies, whether in isolated graves or in cemeteries, in order to transfer  them to their native countries.  The commission recognized the existence of a  sentiment in favor of leaving the bodies of tlie  dead where thcy fell, but in view of thc actual  condilions, regarded it as impracticable.  Morc than 150,000 such scattered graves are  known in France and Belgium. In certain districts, notably those of Ypres and thc Somme battlefields, they are thickly strewn over areas  measuring several'miles in length and breadth.  These areas will shortly be restored to cultivation, or possibly be afforested, and the bodies  cannot remain undisturbed. They must, therefore, be removed to cemeteries, where they can  bc rcverentlv cared for.  WHEN YOU ENTER BY TELEPHONE  ANNOUNCE YOUR NAMfi  ' ,    i."
