M.C. A, addressed two large-audiences in the Empress theatre on  Tuesday afternoon and evening.  His discourses proved of absorbing interest,' consisting as they did  oc the doings of the soldiers at the  front and a description of the work  of the organization which he* represented there for two years of the  war  At the afternoon meeting Capt.  Pearson delightrd his'audience with  the first hand word pictures of the  way "our boys" live, and what energy and push they ar&.putting into  - the work ot winning the struggle  against tbe greatest enemy mankind  ^has ver had in the world'e history.  He stated tnat aarly in the war .the  amount of ammunition for the large  guns was very limited, but now, if  all communications   were   cut   off,  ., they would have enough to last  for  about a'week," with   the guns con-  tinually.pounding tbe enemy's lines.  At   the   beginning of  tbe  war, he  said, there were very few large guns,  but now if  they   were all   lined up  they would extend the length of the  whole front.  He also mentioned the  air   patiol   hystt-m,   eaih   airplane  having a certain amount of territory  l> cover.    He spoke of the comforts  the Y.M.C A. at the  front ; afforded  the men.    The huts are constructed  as near the front   line   trenches   as  possible. These   places   are   always  kept comfortable, and whenever the  soldiers come there they cau get hot  drinks   and dry clothing.    He concluded by   saying   that the   equipment now given the   men  is   vastly  superior to that which they   had  at  the heginniug of the  war, and   that  is the reason they are making   such  a great advance at present.  ,^ At   the   evening  meeting   Capt.  Pearson pictured vividly the scenes! been   placed   in  the huts and   rest  which preceded the first great battle places established  by the Y.M G.A.  of Yprris; the   roads blocked   with  Many a nighf sing-songs  would  be  retreating   troops;    refugees    from'held, the music from   which must  Ypres���������many of whom were old and i have   been   clearlyt audible to the  infirm persons; the growing  eunfu- enemy not 2000 yards away.

It w.as no wonder that the  men wrote short letters; but he said  the Canadian boys' letters were  generally much longer than those  of, the men l'n* tbe English regiments. An^English soldier's" letter,  he said, often read something like  the'following: "Dear'mother, I am  in the pink, hoping you, are the  same."  *       "     "���������.;���������_''  The speaker described the fright,  ful conditions under which the  Canadians lived and fought., during  the first, days of the war, when' the"  shell shortage was at its worst "and  the trenches .were, in some cases,  only a couple of feet deep and the  men lived- in a perfect quagmire.  He pictured the men coming out of  the trenches caked with mud from  hair to feet after an eight day shift  on the firing line. The first place  they would make for after being relieved" would be for the Y.M.C.A.  huts, where they would gather  round the big stoves and dry the  mud on their clothes until it could  be knocked off. On top of the stoves  would be great cans of hot water,  and in the cans many tins of pork  and beans heating. The men .would  consume as many as 60,000 cases of  beans in one week, while the huge  coffee urns would be kept working  all the time.  -Captain Pearson said that one of  the great features of the association's  work was providing amusement for  the men, for which purpose inusi-  cil instruments, talking "machine*  and motion picture   machines   had  WILL CELEBRATE  E  Proceeds Will Be Donated  1 . to the Red Cross'" and "''  Patriotic Fund  , A'special meeting of the Grand  Forks volunteer fire department  was held in the fire hall on Monday  evening,- when the question of the  advisability' of celebrating Empire  day was taken up with committees  from the Red Cross society and the  Patriotic fund. The attendance 'was  representative of the business and  sporting life of the city, and after  the matter had been thoroughly dis  cussed from all viewpoints, it was  unanimously decided to hold a celebration similar to that held last  year. The proceeds of the celebra  tion will be divided between the  two patriotic societies.  Tbe program will consist of firemen's races, horse races, baseball  games, athletic contests and children's sports.  SUNDAY IN THE  NEW TESTAMENT  CAPT.

In   commenting upon the eight New Testament texts where the first day of the  week is mentioned, the   speaker declared that Acts 20:7, which   is  one  of the principal  texts  relied upon  to justify Sunday-keeping, taken  in  connection   with   the   context,   reveals the fact that Paul walked nineteen miles from Troas to Assos that  Sunday morning; and that his eight  companions   during  the night and  day of the same first day  were putting forth laborious efforts in  oper  ating   their   heavy    sailing   vessel  around tbe cape from Troab to  Assos,  where   Paul   had appointed to  meet them,  clearly  indicating  that  these early apostles did   not   regard  the first day as the Sabbath.  The following interesting quotations from eminent,authorities were  given to show that it was not until  after the first century that the  change of days was effected: "The  current   notion  that Christ and his  apostles authoritatively substituted  the first day for the seventh is abso-  ldtely without any authority in the  New Testament."���������Lyman Abbott,  January 19,1882.  "By none of the fathers before the  fourth century is it."(Sunday) identified with the Sabbath, nor is the  duty of observing it grounded by  them, either on the fourth com-  mandment or on " the precept of  Christ or his apostles."���������Chambers'  Encyclopedia, Art. Sabbath.  Many Christians, the speaker declared, are confused upon this  question,because they do not rightly  divide the word of truth, but believe, and honestly too in many  cases, that the law of commandments contained in ordinances, referred to as being "abolished," and  "nailed to the1 cross," in  Col.   2:14  l;  and Eph. 2:15, is not the law of ordinances and ceremonies as Paul  clearly states, but is the ten commandment. "This fatal delusion,"  declares the evangelist, "leads to but  one conclusion, based upon the following scriptures, 'Sin is the transgression of the law.'���������John 3:4.  'For where ho law is, there is no  transgression,' Rom. 4:15'; and that  conclusion is, If there is no law tell-  ing what" sin is, then there is no  need of a Saviour; a conclusion that  warns in trumpet tones that the in-  tepretation car upon which the individual is riding is rushing down  the incline of error."

Upon approaching the lines the Canadians  discovered that tbe officer was wearing a monocle, whereupon each  man produced bis- metal identification diee and screwed it into his eye  to resemble the single glass. The  officer passed down the lines and  looked the men over without comment, then walked out in front of  the lines, removed hi* monocle from  biejeye, tossed it into tbe air, e-tught  it neatly in his eye us it came down j  and barked: "There, do that if you ;  can, you-blighters!"

It will be nearly twice the'height of  the old buildings, and it is to be  constructed entirely . of steel and  glass. With the completion of tbe  new greenhouse, the Frache Bros,  will have about 20,000 square feet  of glass in their plant.  Mr. and Mrs. T!7 C. Heaven' on  Tuesday received a telegram from  the military authorities stating that  their son, Seigt. Alfred Heaven,  had been badly wounded at the  front and that he had been taken to  an hospital in Boulogne. Sergt.  Heaven was recently decorated with  the military medal for bravery on  the- battlefield. A later telegram  says that the wounded man is recovering.  Sam Miller relumed from Victoria on Monday. He was the only  delegate from the Boundary-Koote-  nay country among the Merchants  Protective association's delegation  that interviewed the government  last week'on the prohibition question. He states that the government's action regarding the liquor  traffic is still problematical.  A sensational strike of free gold  was made on Barry Logsdon's  ranch, half a mile south of the international boundary line, near  Danville, on Tuesday last by. Mr.  Logsdon and his son-in-law, Mr.  Faulkner.*  Reports of the discovery vary,  but prominent Grand Forks citizens who have visited the scene  vouch for the statement that the  ore carries fabulous gold values,  and that it is the greatest gold find  ever recorded in the mining history  of America. On the same authority,  it is stated that a two-foot ledge has  been uncovered for ten or twelve  feet, and that in the centre of this  ledge there is a vein about six inches  wide of this high-grade ore.  One man last stated that an assay  had been made at the Granby office  and that the gold values ran $50,-  000 to the ton. Another authority  averred lhat the ore is too rich to be  assayed, and that all that is necessary to be done to determine its  value is to weigh it. In view ot  these conflicting reports, the man  of an excitable temperament will  do well to keep his enthusiasm  on ice at present. Undoubtedly  a great strike has been made, but  it will take some time yet to determine its real value Next week we  hope to be able to verify all the optimistic rumors now afloat.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STIIKKT.  FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 1917  There is  enough  vacant   land  inside  the  limits  of  the  city  of Grand  Forks to grow  enough farm produce to feed the residents of  our  town.    Every  foot of it should be tilled  this  summer.    The  foodstuffs thus produced  might  save a  great" deal of suffering before  ;another twelve months  are  ended.    Even  if  the war does end in four or five months, as is  now being predicted in some quarters,  it will  require some time after hostilities cease to demobilize the huge forces, and while that work  is in progress the men will have to be fed the  ... same as if they were actually engaged in fighting on the battlefield.    It-will  take at least  a year or two to disband the armies and get  the soldiers back   to  their  former vocations  and bring production back to normal.    These  conditions would prevail were  we  to accept  the optimistic views of those who  predict an  early cessation of hostilities. But the  fact is  that the end of the war is at present but  conjecture.    Instead of bringing the conflict to a  close in a couple of months, new complications  may arise that will lengthen it to  that' number of years, in which event  underproduction  would cause untold suffering both among the  armies and  the  civilian  population   of   the  world.    Produce  more foodstuffs, and then  still more.    There is not the slightest danger  of an overproduction  even  though  the war  should end tomorrow.  boc.m������r the alitor of tho paper, by a liberal  jWJistc in space, reminds his readers of the  'fact in every issue.    To our  mode  of  flunk-  ' ������/ r r  !iug, tho Xowa would hv even a greater paper  'than it is, if its editor weir, not such apeisiat-  'cnl a'dvoualo of the unique idea that every  lino in his paper .should"be p.-ii<l for by some  one. This, and the editor's continual iteia-  liun of the greatness of his product, giate  harshly on sensitive and modest nerves. If  some editors find it such a hardship to conduct newspapers in British Columbia uudsr  present conditions, we might .suggest that thoy  go back to the country in which they were  foaled, and to which; we have reason to believe, they still owe allegiance.' What would  be our loss would be another country's gain.  If they decide to remain with us, however, we  hope that in future they will eliminate from  their papers winnings about conducting newspapers in the province at press. The dignity  of the country press should be above such  grovelling.  *J  The man engaged in industrial pursuits who  shows a streak of yellow at present, would  have developed the same color had die been  sent to the trenches.  We are living in an historic age. Not alone  on the battlefield are deeds daily being performed that will live forever in song, romance  and drama, but in parliaments and congresses  speeches, teeming with ideas of a new and  nobler civilization, are-now of common occurrence. They will be quoted by future generations as the product of the crucial. period  through which we are now passing. It is to  be feared that few of us fully realize the important place the present generation will occupy  in the world's history.  We are pleased to notice that the Victoria  government is not acceptable to the Nelson  Daily News. This is a good sign. Any government that could please the Daily News  would not be a good government. Therefore  Premier Brewster and his colleagues need not  worry. But what about the Nelson Dailv  News? There is no evidence<that it is pleasing its constituents in this section of the province. It is slovenly edited by the office boy  while the editor spends most of his tinie attending conventions whose primary object is  to devise means whereby a large portion of  news matter can be charged for as advertising.  The result is practically a newsless News.  The News is not indispensable to" Grand  Forks, because we receive the same news, in a  more elaborate form, in the Vancouver evening papers of the previous day a couple of  hours after the Nelson paper arrives. Under a  new timetable it is possible that they may get  here ahead of the News.  Some of .our Kootenay exchanges that  openly opposed the Liberal party in the late  election have reared on their hind legs and  are vociferously bellowing threats because  they are not getting enough patronage���������' from  the Victoria government. The same papers  want the patronage system abolished - whenever a decent Liberal is appointed to office.  Consistency, thou art asleep.  Mexico is . still neutral, 'but some of the  deputies in the Mexican congress - are openly  advocating an alliance with Germany. It  would not surprise us if that country would  ultimately become crazy enough to take this  fatal plunge.  All the important South American republics are following the lead of the United  States, which shows the good sense of the  Latin Americans.  The Sun is pained to notice that some of  the country papers that but a few short  months back hailed the installation of linotypes in their establishments as the alpha of  their prosperit}', have been forced by stress of  circumstances to reduce from eight pages to  two.  The Sun, at $1.00 per year, gives its readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary paper. This fact accounts  or the rapid increase in our circulation.  Besides being read by all the intelligent people of Grand Forks, The Sun goes to every  ranch home in the Kettle and North Fork  valleys.    No other Boundary paper can   give  advertisers this guarantee.  SNAP-IF TAKEN AT ONCE  The Trail News is a great rural newspaper.

He says that a few drops of a drug  called freezone, applied directly upon  a tender, aching corn, instantly relieves soreness, and soon the entire  corn, root and all, lifts right out.  This dru^ is a sticky ether compound,  but dries at once and simply shrivels  up the corn without inflaming or even  irritating the  surrounding tissue.  It is claimed that a quarter of an  ounce of freezone obtained at any drug  store will cost very little but is sufficient to remove every hard or soft corn  or callus from one's feet.
