The chairman  of the  water and  ' light commiitee stated   that, in   his  '   opinion the sag in the sidewalk in  - fr >ni of the telephone office had .not  - been'caused by the excavation for  . water connection, as the sag occurred  .at    the  end of  the'concrete blocks,  whereas the excavation had be'm  made under the centre of the blocks.  He wisheded to have the board of  works look into the matter and de  termine whether his department  was at fault or not.

The following" officers were  elected for the ensuing year:  Chief, A. E. Savage; assistant  chief, Ben Norrie; secretary, D. .C.  Manly; treasurer, F. J. Miller;.captain, John A. Huttou, foreman, M.  J. Quinlivan.  _ .  It was decided to hold a special  meeting in the fire hall on Monday  evening next, when the question- of  celebrating the 24th of May will be  taken up with committees from the  Red Cross society and the Patriotic  fund.  A Steer and His Brother  Operate a Ferry  Harry Stevenson, of Stevenson's  ferry, who was bitten a few days  ago by a mad steer which was afflicted with hydrophobia, was taken  to Portland for treatment in the  hope of saving bis life. The steer  was inoculated with rabies by a  mad dog.or coyote. With his brother  herruns the ferry eight miles from  Nespelem.���������San Poil Eagle.  iElTlfffl  The Grand Forks branch of tbe  Curlew creamery is to be enlarged  during the preeent month. The  butter making capacity will be increased to 1000. porxiuds daily, thus  practically doubling the output. The  company also operates a branch at  Kelson, where it is preparing to install a modern refrigerator and ice  making plant. It is intended to  have the plant in operation by May  1. It will have a capacity of a ton  of ice daily.'  Close to the ruins of a city in  Flanders, the name of which . will  ever "be historic in Canada, on a  high road incessantly swept by German shrapnel and torn by German  shells beyond th,e reach of "the Belgian civilian, ' and where'n') woman  or child is "ever seen, stands a sand  bag dug-out consecrated to -ttfe. ser-  ,vice of men through the 6th'b'rigade,  Canadian Y.M.C.A., und������r 'ttie'di,  rection of Capt.

Tlaaks laid across empty  boxes form a counter, and separate  the "staff" of one ftom the visitors,  who are many.  The trade done here is unique,  and contrary to all accepted standards ofv business, for , instead of  minimum expenditure per man being -insisted upon, it is .the-maximum that is set, for no man' is .allowed to spend more than tuppence'. It is the "simple life" in  business, for only two articles are  sold���������cocoa, 'one penny per cup,  and biscuits, one penny per* packet,  and the sales are limited .to one of  each per man. True, the Y,M C.A  principles, free writing material and  reading matter are kept handy, and  there is tbe inevitable gramaphone  for loaning out toartillery and othev  isolated units.  How does the man in charge oc  cupy hie time? Well, here is bi^  ���������timetable for yesterday���������and a' fair  sample: 1:30 a.ni, called out of bed  to give direction to a ration party  looking for the trenches; 3:30 a.m ,  aroused by rhree men entering seeking shelter from falling shrapnel;  6 a.m., called up by eight men, ad  vance party of a battalion, wanting  a breakfast lunch;- started the Primus going; dressed while the cocoa  warmed up, and then served them  the usual. Luring the day be served  300 soldiers the same���������British,  Canadian, French and Belgian, with  cocoa,   between  times making   the  trict court martial.) But the next  would-be customer, on, being told  that "We have no  cigarettes here,"  asked "What the are you here  for, then?" One complimentary customer, as a German shell burst  close by and rocked- the dug-out,  said,"I wouldn't stay here for $1000  a-month." "Neither would I," was  the pointed reply of the man who  is spending his days and ��������� nights in  this place.   -  ' This is a brief sketch of the work  being'done at what is perhaps the  most dangerous Y~M.C A. centre in  tbe world.-  TWO ROBBERIES  Safes in the Phoenix Post  '. Office and the Cascade  Hotel Killed   ..  PROPHECY PREDICTS-  GHANGE OF SABBATH  The program at the Empress theatre Easter Sunday night" proved to  be instructive as well' as interesting  to the audience of about two hundred people assembied; After the  presentation of Holes' celebrated  pictures of the life of Christ from  Bethlehem - to Gethsemane, Evan-  geltst Wood turned to"- the seventh  chapter of Daniel/and called attention to a wonderful prophecy, in  which the angel- of the Lord informed Daniel that a certain power  would arise which would think to  change God's law. By the use ,of  charts upon which'were printed the  law of God, the ten commandments  as they were ' written by Ihe finger  of" Jehovah, and the same com-  mandmtnis as'' they have been  changed, the sp'eaker sought to impress hiB audience' with the fact that  The safe in the' Phoenix post  office was blown open last night,  and the robbers got away/ with  about $800. The only clue so far  discovered of the perpetrators of the  robbery was the finding today of  the cash box of the safe on the  Great Northern track about a mile  this side of Phoenix. People from  Phoenix say the "job" was done in  a workmanship like manner, and  they firmly belteve that the robbers  were professionals.  Ont,he same night that the above  robbery was perpetrated,athe safe in  J, A! ^Bertois' B. C. Hotel at Cascade ; was blown open, and tbe  cracksmen made their eacape with  $200. This job is said to have been  executed in a more amateurish man  ner,and many people have expressed  the!opinion that it was done by  local-parties.1  ' The theory was at first advanced  toai a- party of cracksmen, traveling  by'motor car,-had, committed both  robberies.

Cardinal Gibbons, in "Faith of Our Fathers";  'Question���������Have you any other  way of proving that the church, has  power to institute festivals of precept? Answer���������Had.

Ezekiel 13:  4 14was referred to to show that  God is not pleased with the gap  lhat has been made in his law; nor  of the wall that has been built of  untempered morter to fill up tbe  gap.

C.  OKFiClv!    (JOLUVIMA AVKNUE AND LAKH STUHKT.  FRIDAY, APRTL 13, 1917  Premier Lloyd George has given the American newspapers on behalf of the - war  cabinet  the following:    "America has  at one,, bound  become  a world power in a  sense she never  was before. - She  waited   until  she found a  cause     worthy -  of   her    traditions.      The  .American people held .back'until' they   were  "fully convinced that the fight was not a sordid  scrimmage for power and possessions, but an  unselfish struggle to overthrow a sinister conspiracy against human  liberty   and   human  rights.    Once  that  conviction  was reached,  the great republic leaped into the arena, and  she now stands side by side with the European   democracies, who,   bruised and   bleeding-  after   th.iee   years  of grim   conflict, a.ie still  fighting the most savage foe  that  ever  menaced   the   free  dominion of the world.    The  glowing phrases of the president's  noble  de-  liveranco  illumine   the   horizon   and    make  .. clearer than ever the goal we are  striving  to  reach.    There  are  three  phrases which will  stand out forever in the story of this crusade.  The first is that 'the world must be made safe  for democracy'; the next,"'the menace to peace  and freedom lies in the existence of autocratic  government backed by organized  force which  is controlled wholly by their will and  not  by  the   will of their  people,' and the crowning  phrase is -that in which  he  declares  that  'a  steadfast concert for peace cau never be main-  ' tained except by the partnership of democratic nations.'   These words represent the faith  which inspires and sustains our people  in the  tremendous sacrifices they have made and are  still making.    They also believe that the unity  and peace of mankind can only rest upon  democracy, upon the right of those  who  submit to authority, to have a voice in their own  government, upon respect for the  rights  and  liberties of nations both great and small, and  upon the universal dominion of public right.  To all of these the Prussian  military autocracy is an implacable foe.    The imperial war  cabinet, representative of all the people of the  British  empire, wish   me, on  their behalf, to  recognize the chivalry and courage which call  the people of the United States of America to  dedicate the whole of their resources to  the  geatest cause that ever engaged  human  endeavor."
