McArdle,  McCallum, Schnitter and Webster  were present at the regular meeting  of the city council ��������� on Monday  night'  A. S Sharp, in a letter to the  council, complained of ^tbe method  that bad-been taken to collect the  $2 city road tax from him. He did  not object to payingthe tax, but he  did not like to have it deducted from  his wages, as had been done by tbe  C.P. R., without first being asked for  it. The clerk was instructed to ask  the collector of road taxes why this  course had been taken.  The chairman of the finance committee reported that S5100 of the  sinking fund had been invested in  Victory loan bonds. He recom-  mrnded thai the past month's account" be p"aid. The report was ap  proved:',; -,  The chairman of the water and  cohimittee'reported that he had .interviewed Mr. Garrett, local agent of  the C.P. 11., regarding the installation of a "switch at the substation  fur the company's 'power line. Mr.  Garrett had ..promised' to take the  matter up with the officials of his  company, and he had expressed the  opinion that the case would- be materially strengthened if the city  would address a letter to the officials showing the necessity of the  switch. The clerk was instructed  to write a letter, through Mr. Garrett, to the C.P. R. officials, setting  forth the importance of tbe switch  being installed.  Aid. McCallum asked for information regarding whose jurisdiction  the inspection of weights and measures came under. He said that recently there had been numerous  complaints of short weights and  measures. The mayor replied that  the regulation of sveiyhts and measures came under the federal authorities. About the only way be  could see out of the grievance complained of was for the city to establish a public scales. . ifter considerable   discussion   of   the   subject,  AljijyicCalliim^^  leave to introduce a bylaw providing for penalties for giving short  weights and measures.  Mayor Acres drew the council's  attention to the awful calamity that  had overtaken Halifax. It was, he  said, probably   the   worst   disaster  amount. About half of this sum,  he explained, would come 'back to  the city in fees from patients, and'  the equipment could ..be stored away  for future emergencies. On "motion  of. Aid. McCallum and McArdle, the  supplementary estimates asked for  was granted.  On'motion of Aid. McArdle and  Webster, the city hall was designated as the polling place for "holding  the municipal election on January  17. John A. Hutton was appointed returning officer, and S, T. Hull,  Donald McCallum, P. H. Donaldson, Charles,' Win, Frakes, John  McKie and F. R. S. Barlee were  named as deputies.  "Aid. McArdle asked for a supple  mentary estimates grant of $500 for  ,the health" and relief committee,  He stated -that this extra amonnt  was required owing to the fact that  the city has recently had a few rather  charity cases in the Grand Forks  hospital. On motion' of Aid. McCallum and Schnitter, the amount  asked for was voted the  committee.  DIED FROM- EXHAUSTION WHILE HUNTING  Up the main Kettle river thirty-  live miles from Westbridge, Jack  Christian, accompanied by Guy Le-  Roy Lockhart, aged thirteen, went  out on a hunting trip, says the  Greenwood Ledge.-The weather was  bad, snowing a good part of the  time, and the hifhfertj'got lost. rh'e"y  wandered for nearly two day, and  during this time the lad got sick  from traveling and' want of food.  As .' they came in sight of a cabin  which belonged to Mr. Scbenck, the  ���������boy was ' in very bad shapej Mr.  Christian was unable to do anything  with him, so he left him and went  to the cabin to see what he could  get. On his return he found the boy  suffering from cramps in the stom  ach, and about ten minutes later he  passed away. The burial took place  close to the boy's home, whose parents own a ranch in that section.  This is a very sad affair, but not  the first to occur in this part of the  Boundary, and it is on the opinion  of the coroner that parents should  use more discretion in allowing their  children of such tender age to go on  such expeditions. s  Holy City -Capitulates After  Being Surrounded by*'*  Gen. Allenby  Jerusalem is in the hands of the  British, after having been for virtually. 1200 years in the control of  the Moslems.  The Holy City of tbe Christian religion capitulated to Gen. Allenby's  forces, consisting of British, French  and Italian troops, after it had been  entirely surrounded, and with its  fall whs swept away the dream of  "the Germans and the Turks of driving southward through Palestine,  capturing th*e Suez canal and invading Egypt. Since the recent taking  of the town of Jaffa, on tbe Mediterranean, and the gradual closing  in on Jerusalem by the allied forces,  the fall of the aucien't city daily has  been anticipated. It was not the  lack of strength that prevented its  capture, but rather the desire of  Gen. Allenby to carry out his plan  of enveloping the city and forcing  its capitulation, as a frontal attack  would have endangered the numerous sacred places inside the city  a"nd in-its- environs. --':-���������"- ��������� -' ��������� ���������"-���������  GREEN WOOD'S EXEMPTION TRIBUNAL  Pat Found a Way  A Scotchman and an Irishman  once set out.together on a holiday,  and Sandy intrusted all his money  to his friend with the strict injunc  tion not to jnve him   more   than  :l  The Greenwood exemption tribunal, sitting under" the military  service act, has completed its work.

The people of the Dominion \vill then be given an opportunity to  decide whether this country is to continue  to bear her share of the world's war, or  whether", like Russia, she is to drop out' and  ask for a separate peace. The defeat of the  Unionist government would virtually mean  this inglorious end of. a brilliant beginning^  Sir Wilfrid- Laurier's war policy is childish.  When troops are needed for the trenches is  not the proper' time to take a referendum  whethei to send them'-or-not. This is. what  his' "war policy," stripped of verbosity and  circumlocution, amounts to. The duty is to  send them,-at whatever sacrifice to the country. If we do not wish "to become vassals of  Germany, we must continue to play our part  in the war until a complete victory is won.  We hope the electors of thecountry will view  the present situation in this light, and cast  their ballots accordingly on the 17th.

F -OP. L  CAUSES ID 'REMEDY  Absolntely nothing can be said against the  Unionist party. Its record is clean. The only  charge laid at its door, that we are aware of,  :s that it is dominated'by the old Conservative  party. It is just as easy to refute this accusation as it is to make it; We know that dur  ing the past few years there has been grafting  and profiteering going on in"connection with  the war, but the new party can not be held responsible for this. If this nefarious work is  attempted in the future, the most effective  way of stopping it would be to make the men  engaged in it face a firing squad.  If we had but one guess, we should say that  the most uncertain element in this election is  the young man who applied for exemption.  B. C. News Item:    J.

K   STEWAKT:  Pastor Russell's chronolgy on Bonner's chart showing  the Labor Pangs during tho "time of theeud" indicate the  year 1917 as the last prosperous year until Messiah's kingdom shall have come. On account of curtailment Here and  there,-business will hegin to languish, the people will* be  stunned with the public debt, moralists will become disheartened, fathers aud mothers groan at the flow of blood,  social leprosy shall set in, economic conditions become  paralyzed. For six years this will continue until the last  vestige of satanic control is wiped out of the earth. If we  turn our eyes from this picture we cannot escape it,neither  can we hide our heads in the sand. We must.face'it with  all the fortitude at our command, seek God's favors the  Bible way, and earnestly plead for the sins of the past,  change our course and seek to know what righteousness is  and follow it with studied  persistency.  Traveling salesmen have been able to feel the business  pulse of the land, and those having reverence for God's  word have been enabled to sense the outcome and to give a  more or less coucrete diagnosis of'the malady Large  wholesale houses notified their salesmen that every order  submitted to them was merely as-''offers"���������that thev  would exercise their own pleasure and reserve the right to  change every price, cut the order down,cancel any or every  part. The stiffneas and acuteness of the situation is readily discerned by'looking over the recent grocery lists of  the leading mail order houses. The sentiment seems to  be as one man expressed it, "To sit still and watch the  prices go up."  With a steadily advancing market, whatever the cause,  the ingrained selfishness in man impels him to hold what  he has for "higher prices" as a matter of "business sagacity." This ignoring of the principles of righteoulness ex  tends from the man with a day's labor to sell to the multimillionaire.    Hence in a land of plenty there is want.  The Situation Perplexing to Many  In the editorial columns of leaoing papers we find ex  pressions which no doubt faithfully represent the perplexi  ty which many minds are in -One editorial says: "The  reason or reasons for the scarcity and exorbitant prices of  the absolute necessities of life, that exists in this conntry,  no one has yet made plain." It refers to the. "hidden  causes," and wants Secretary Houston-'to have plenty of  money and get busy with detectives and "solve the puzzle."  Beginning with the first of Jnne the   pressure   was    relieved a little.   Prices on flour and sugar  declined.    Gardening has .been good, and fresh', vegetables   are   plentiful;  potatoes found a lower level. The "food controller" legis  lation came in just right to please the financier.    The indi-  helpless.    j;dgden~A^^  "The prices for wheat, corn, potatoes, livestock and other  food products are now beyond tho control of any agency  other than the government. Only the government can  now prevent food prices from going up to most oppressive  heights, and only the government can assure conservation  of food stocks, i"believe the solution, temporarily at least,  lies in government regulation of prices " He forthwith  proceeds to clean the financiers' skirts by laying the trou  ble to the farmer���������"ho believes in a vigorous campaign to  get the farmers to utilize every foot of available land as  the only alternative to hunger next winter." He says the  food shortage is world wide, and wants the greatest possible return from the soil, for it's up to the American farmer to feed the world!  Pastor C. T. Russell, back in 189G, published a book  called "The Day of Vengeance," or "The Battle of Ar  mogeddon," and in it he takes up the causes leading on to  high prices, comparative low wages, discontent, and the  ' world-war with its attendant troubles. He takes np every  conceivable remedy that the doctors of industry will use in  their malpractice to cure tho  body politic and shows the  <fr  %������������������  reasonable  We are showing a-choice stock of goods suitable for CHRISTMAS GIFTS. -You-are cordially invited to come in and-see our line:  JEWELER AND OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS, B.

And no man-need be in ignorance as what to expect nor as to the  ultimate result, except as he may vol-  untorily refuse to learn. While the  climax is coining just a little . slower  than the pastor's expectations, yet he  has had it till mapped out for over 20  years; a"nd tnore'people would be' acquainted with the facts if there had  not been so much dust-thrown into  the eyes of the people to becloud their  vision. .. , ... ,  The Conservation of Foo*1  What .about the conservation of-  food? As far as the world is concerned, God is no respector of person.  He sends the rain and the sunshine  upon the evil and the just.. Prof.  Hicks explains that the ever-changing  planetary conditions" have much to do  with our. weather,-and. that .we. are  now entering into a "Jupiter .period,"  which lasts two years; Jupiter's influ  ence is to produce- extremes���������that our.  weather, whatever tho kind, will be  intensified. And,'no doubt, the wisdom of God, permits satan (the prince  of the power of the air���������Eph. 2:2) to  have some liberties, and the adversary  of both God aud man takes advantage  of imperfect conditions,in, man, eaith  and atmosphere, and augments' the  power in storms, causing them to be  more severe, making hot weather hotter, cold weather colder, dry .weather  drier, wet weather wetter, etc. This  will continue until satan is bound for  a thousand years by Christ's kingdom;  Quoting St. Paul: "We wrestle not  against flesh and blood, but against  wicked spirits (of which satan is chief)  in heavenly places (unseen of men),  against wicked powers and the rulers  of the darkness of this age," and "the  god of this age" is satan. (Eph. 6:12;  2 Cor. 4:4.) The thing meant by  "rulers of the darkness" is that satan  has the power of deception���������he hides  the truth, and makes superstition,  credulity and phaiisaical holiness  stand out as prime virtues to be emulated. "He makes everything that  "isn't so" popular. (2 Cor. 11:13 15)  Saton has the world upside down; and  Christ's kingdom coining in is going  to place everything right side up. JNo'  wonder we have commotion and di'/zi  ness and perplexity world-wide. The  people are beginning to listen.

To mee't the food  situation, Secretary Houston told  the senate the department of agriculture needs the following authority aad power: "To make a complete survey of the food supply of  the nation, with a view to secure  full information as to its location,  ownership, and where it is needed,  and complete knowledge as to the  instrumentalities and agencies that  own, control, manufacture and dis  tribute food products " He said this  see if prices do not go soaring again.

This" undue and unprincipled manipulation of "food control" by "combines" or trusts after  it leaves the producer,' we give as  tne fourth reason for high prices.  Since 1846, religious, money and  commercial trusts have multiplied  add waxed great, and are the "giants"  of our day doomed to destruction,  paralleling the destruction of the  "giants" in Noah's day. (Matt. 24:  37,39; Gen. 6jl 5.), The government  has a law to control-trusts, bnt the  power of, that law-is known by its  -fruits.--Rockefeller endows a college  or doe's'something for philanthropy,  andup goes the price of coal oil; he  buys $10,000,000 worth of liberty  loanbonds, and gasoline-responds to  a twist of the jack-screws. The sugar  trust was "dissolved" some time ago,  and up went the price of sugar. The  tobacco trust was divided and subdivided hy order of the courts, but  tobacco took an immediate advance  ���������and continues to go up, regardless  of tbe report of a very large crop in  1916. When the allied forces of  Wall street beat a hasty retreat  shortly' and go into hiding, the  trusts .and monopolists will melt  away and give the people a chance  to breathe.  Shylock uses hi3 tools (press  agents) to cause '.'contrary winds"  ���������favorable "trade winds"���������to blow  upon the "stock exchanges"  "Winds" from the northwest bring  much damage to growing crops���������  prices go up: next day the   "winds"  ���������powershould also include the taking  ���������over and ".-operation of   the   plants, I lay   and   the   sun   cornea out, and  factories,    etc-',     whenever     such  prices   decline.     A    "peace wind"  blows from the east, causing a further decline; next day the "rumor"  is denied���������and prices advance.  The  courses   may   be  necessary  in the  public interest.  Mr.   Houston himself said   that  aside from wheat and potatoes there  quote statistics showing a 40,000,000  bushel surplus of wheat in the country, admitting he could not determine.the cause of high wheat prices.  We know, too, there has been no  shortage of potatoes. There may  have been a spoilage, or wholesale  dumping in the rivers, but no short  age.  Will Conservation  Cure the  Malady?  The "wise men" of the earth have  hearts that beat as one.    Their eyes  are   focused   upon food production.!  They want the barns, granaries and  storehouses filled to the roof.

There has just been  issued a map of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. It has been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly Star of- Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. It is in four colors and  about 2������x3������"feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about 5x10 inches.  The map is surrounded1 by-a border of  the regimental badges and coat of  arms of nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at "once. That- "portion  of the map covering,'France is in a  soft color "with names "of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The FamilyHerald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate 81.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much .larger increase in the subscription price of The Family Herald, arid  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should be still greater when this offer  becomes known.  END STOMACH TROUBLE,   . o ������o.cp..nD-nvonp.nni������.

He said that recently   there   had   been   numerous  complaints  of   short   weights   and  measures.    The mayor  replied that  the regulation of weights and measures   came   under   the federal authorities.   About  the  only  way he  could see out of the grievance  complained of was for the city to establish a public  scales. , After considerable   discussion   of   the   subject,  Aid.

On his return he found the boy  suffering from cramps in the storn  ach, aud about ten minutes later be  passed away. The burial took place  close to the boy's home, whose parents own a ranch in that section.  This is a vory sad affair, but not  the first to occur in this part of the  Boundary, and it is on the opinion  of the coroner that parents should  use more discretion in allowing their  children of such tender age to go on  such expeditions.  Jerusalem is in the hands of the  British, after having been for virtually. 1200 years in the control of  the Moslems.  Tbe'Holy^ City of. tbe Christian religion capitulated to Gen. Allenby's  forces, consisting of British, French  and Italian troops, after it had been  entirely   surrounded,   and   with its  fall-was swept away   the   dream   of  the Germans and the Turks of driving   southward   through   Palestine,  capturing tbfle Suez canal and invading Egypt.    Since the recent taking  of   the  town of Jaffa, on the Mediterranean, and   the  gradual closing  in on Jerusalem by the allied forces,  the fall of tbe ancient city daily has  been"   anticipated.    It   was   not the  lack   of  strength that prevented its  capture, but   rather  the   desire   of  Gen. Allenby to carry out his  plan  of enveloping the city  and   forcing  jts capitulation, as a   frontal   attack  would have endangered the   numerous   sacred places   inside   the   city  atid in-its-environs.    :.r-  -       ������������������-.���������^���������  Trail of the Cowardly Cougar,"  which relates his and Fred Stone's  experiences when they went mountain lion hunting in the wilds of  northern Arizona.

The people of the Dominion will then be given an opportunity to  decide whether this country is to continue  to bear her share of the world's war, or  whether, like Russia, she is to drop ��������� out and  ask for'a separate peace. The defeat of the  Unionist government would virtually mean  this inglorious .end of. a brilliant beginning.  Sir Wilfrid- Laurier's war policy is childish.  When- troops are needed for the trenches is  not the" proper time to take a referendum  whether to send them or- not." This is what  his "war policy," stripped of verbosity and  circumlocution, amounts' to. The duty is to  send them, at whatever sacrifice to the country. If we do not wish to become vassals of  Germany, we must continue to play our part  in the war until a complete victory is won.  We hope the electors of the country will view  the present situation in this light, and cast  their ballots accordingly on the 17th.  Absolntely nothing can be said against the  Unionist party. Its record is clean. The only  ' charge laid at its door, that we are aware of,  :s that it is dominated by the old Conservative  party. It is" just as easy to refute this accusation as'it is to make it." Weknow that' during the past few years there has been grafting  and profiteering going on in connection with  the war, but the new party can not be held responsible for this. If this nefarious work is  attempted in the future, the most effective  way of stopping it would be to make the men  engaged in it face a firing squad.  If we had but one guess, we should say that  the most uncertain element in _this election is  the young man who applied for exemption.  B. C. News Item:    J.

Pastor Russell's chronolgy oh Benner's chart showing  the Labor Pangs during the "time of theeud" indicate the  year 1917 as the last prosperous year until Messiah's kingdom shall have come. On account of curtailment nere and  there, business will begin to languish, the people will bo  stunned' with the, public debt, moralists will become disheartened, fathers and mothers groan at the flow of blood,  social leprosy shall set in, economic conditions become  paralyzed. For six years this will continue until the last  vestige of satanic control is wiped out of the earth. If we  turn our eyes from this pictuie we cannot'escape it, neither  can we hide our heads in the sand. We must.face it with  all the fortitude at our command, seek God's favors the  Bible way, and earnestly plead for the sins of the past,  ehange'our course and seek to.know what, righteousness is  and follow ifc with studied  persistency:.  Traveling salesmen have been able to feel the",business  pulse of theland, and those having reverence for God's  word have been enabled to sense the outcome and to give a  more or less coucrete diagnosis of the malady Large  wholesale houses notified their salesmen that every order  submitted to them was merely as -"offers"���������that thev  would exercise their own pleasure and reserve the right to  change every price, cut the order down,cancel any or every  part. The stiffneas and acutene-ss of the situation is readily discerned by looking over the recent grocery lists of  the leading mail order houses. The sentiment, seems to  be as one man expressed it, "To sit still and watch the  prices go up."  With a steadily advancing market, whatever the cause,  the ingrained selfishness in man impels him to hold what  he has for "higher prices" as a matter of "business sagacity." This ignoring of the principles of righteoulness ex  tends from the man with a day's labor to sell to the multimillionaire.    Hence in a land of plenty there is want.  The Situation Perplexing to Many  In the editorial columns of leading papers we find ex  pressions which no doubt faithfully represent the perplexi  ty which many minds are in -One editorial says: "The  reason or reasons for the scarcity and exorbitant prices of  the absolute necessities of life, that exists in this conntry,  no one has yet made plain." It refers to the "hidden  causes," aud wants Secretary Huuston to have plenty of  money and get busy with detectives and "solve the puzzle."  Beginning with the first of J-nne the pressure was relieved a little. Prices on flour and sugar declined. Gardening has,been good, and fresh vegetables are plentiful;  potatoes found a lower level. The "food controller" legis  lation came in just right to please the financier. The individual money king had lost his grip and was becoming  helpless. J. Ogden Armour was one of these. He said:  "The prices for wheat, corn, potatoes, livestock and other  food productsare now beyond tho control of any agency  other than the government. Only the government can  now prevent food prices from going up to most oppressive  heights, and only the government can assure conservation  of food stocks. I believe the solution, temporarily at least,  lies in government regulation of prices " He forthwith  proceeds to clean the financiers' skirts by laying tho trou  ble to the fanner���������"he believes in a vigorous campaign to  get the farmers to utilize every foot of available land as  the only alternative to hunger next winter." He says the  food shortage is world wide, and wants the greatest possible return from the soil, for it's up to the American fanner to feed the world!  Pastor C. T. Russell, back in 1S9G, published a book  called "The Day of Vengeance." or "The Battle of Ar  rnogeddon," and in it he takes up the causes leading on to  high prices, comparative low wages, discontent, and the  world-war with its attendant troubles. He takes np every  conceivable remedy that tho doctors of industry will use in  their malpractice to cure the  body politic and shows the  /T  =^  oods  We are showing a choice stock of goods suitable for CHRISTMAS G5ETS.

And no man need be in ignorance as what to expect nor as to the  ultimate result, except as he may vol-  untorily refuse'to learn.' While the  climax is coining just a little slower  than the pastor's expectations, yet he  has had it all mapped out for over 20  years; a*nd more people would be acquainted with the facts if there had  not been so much dust thrown into  the eyes'of the people to becloud their  vision. ���������.. '���������  The Conservation of Foo<i  What .about the conservation of  food? As. far. as the world is concerned, God is no respector of person.  He sends the rain and the sunshine  upon the evil and the just. Prof.  Hicks explains that the ever-changing  planetary conditions have much to do  with our.. weather, and. that .we. are  now entering into a "Jupiter .period,"  which lasts two years; Jupiter'sinflu  ence is to produce extremes���������that our,  weather, whatever the .kind, will be  intensified; And, no doubt, the wis-,  dom of God, permits satan (theprince  of the power.of the air������������������Eph. 2:2) to  have some'liberties, and the adversary  of both God and man takes advantage"  of imperfect conditions .in ,. man, eaith  and atmosphere, and .augments ,the  power in storms, causing them to be  more severe,' making hot.weather hot-,  ter, cold-weather colder, dry weather  drier, wet weather wetter, etc. This  will continue until satan is bound for  a thousand years by Christ's kingdom;  Quoting St. Paul: "We wrestle not  against flesh and blood, but against  wicked spirits (of which satan is chief)  in heavenly places (unseen of men),  against wicked powers and the rulers  of the darkness of this age," and "the  god of this age" is satan. (Eph. 6:12;  2 Cor. 4:4.) The thing meant by  "rulers of the darkness" is that satan  has the power of deception���������he hides  the truth, and makes superstition,  credulity and pharisaical holiness  stand out as prime virtues to be emulated. "He. makes everything that  "isn't so" popular. (2 Cor. 11:13 15 )  Saton has the world upside down; and  Christ's kingdom coming in is going  to place everything right side up. No  wonder we have commotion and dizzi  ness and perplexity world-wide. The  people are beginning to listen. Satan  is losing patience with his dupes, and  now he is busy "casting out satan"  (Matt. 12:26) by various devices���������  the poor human family has lost the  friendship hs satan���������satan has become ''mad" and the world can't cope  with him.

To mee't   the   food  situation,   Secretary   Houston   told  the ������enate the department   of   agriculture needs the following authority   aad   power:    "To   make a complete   survey   of   the food supply of  tbe   nation, with a  view  to   secure  full information as to   its   location,  ownership, and where it is   needed,  and. complete   knowledge as to the  instrumentalities and  agencies  that  own, control, manufacture and dis  tributefood products" He said this  .powershould also include the taking  see if prices do not go soaring again.  Every year it does. Why should  this year be any different from any  other year? This undue and unprincipled manipulation of "food control" by'"com bines" or trusts after  it leaves the producer, we give as  the fourth reason for high prices.  .Since 1846, religious, money   and  commercial trusts   have   multiplied  add waxed great.and are the "giants"  of our day , doomed   to  destruction,  paralleling   the   destruction of  the  "giants" in Noah's day.

There has just been  issued a map of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. It has been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly . Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. It is in four colors and  about 2Jx3;}������feet aud folded into a  very neat cover, about 5x10 inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the - regimental badges and coat of  arms of nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from ' Halifax ��������� to' Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at "once. That -portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names'of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large "quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The Family'Herald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate Si.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14,  1917  Monday next another chapter will be added  to Canada's history. The people of the Dominion 'will then be given an opportunity to  decide whether this country is to continue  to bear her share of the world's war, or  whether, like Russia, she is to drop out- and  ask for a separate peace. The defeat of the  Unionist government would virtually, mean  this inglorious .end of. a brilliant beginning.  Sir Wilfrid- Laurier's war policy is childish.  When troops are needed for the trenches is  not the proper time to take a referendum  whethei to send them or-not. This is .what,  his "war policy," .stripped of verbosity and  circumlocution, amounts to. The duty is to  send them,-at whatever sacrifice to the country.' If we do not wish "to become vassals of  Germany, we must continue to play our part  in the war until a complete victory is won.  We hope the electors of the country will view  the present situation in* this light, and cast  their ballots accordingly on- the 17th.  Absolntely nothing can be-said against the  Unionist party. Its record is clean. The only  ' charge laid at its door, that "we are aware of,  -s that it is dominated by the old Conservative  party. It is just as easy to refute this accusation as it is to make it. We know that dur"  ing the past few years there has been grafting  and profiteering going on in connection with  the war, but the new party.can not be held responsible for this. If this nefarious work is  attempted in the future, the most effective  way of stopping it would-be to make the men  engaged in it face a firing squad.  If we had but one guess, we should say that  the most uncertain element in .this election is  the young man who applied for exemption.  B. C. News Item: J.

See'st thou tbe fury and the flame of war  That threaten now thy glory and thy state?  Behold thy sons who strive to shield thee wait  To guard thy treasures, lest despoilers mar  The jewels that enshrine thee as a star,  And leave thee stricken, sad and desolate.  Shall these thy palace walls whose  mirrored  gleam '  In radiance flashes on the sunlit air,  These holy spires whose fragile traceries seem  Through mists of morning to uplift a prayer-  Shall Venice fall and vanish like a dream  Amidst the havoc of a world's despair?  ii  I hear the cannon thunder in the West,  I see the clouds of war, but in my place    "  Unmoved I stand who saw Attila's face  And feared him not, amidst mine islands blest,  Still am I Venice, Mistress, Queen, confessed,  Though towerand palace fall and leave no trace  And my fair Campanile's slender grace  Drop like a lily from-my wounded breast.  Though sculptured stone and jewelled shrine  be riven,  And from my hand the ring and sceptre hurled,  Still am I Queen, for unto me was given  Art, Poetry, and Freedom's flag unfurled���������  I can not die white men still dream of Pleaven,  And God's reflection, Beauty, lights the world  In Flanders fields the poppies, blow  Between the crosses, row on row,  That mark our place, aud in the sky'  The larks; still bravely singing, fly;  Scarce heard amid the guns below.  We are the dead; short dnys ago  We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,  -  Loved and were loved, and now we lie  In Flanders fields.  Take up our quarrel with the foe!  To you from failing hands we throw  The torch; be yours to hold it high!  If ye break faith with us. who die  We shall not sleep, though poppies-grow,  In Flanders fields.     ���������John McRae.  cvn  ID REMEDY  Providing for Honest Thing's, Not Only  in the Sight of the Lord B uh-.Mso in the  Sight of Men."-II   Cor..8:21.  L. A. Lefevre  Vancouver, December 1,  (PART TWO.)  .    BY C.  E   STEWART:  Pastor Russell's chronolgy on Benner''s chart showing  the Labor Pangs during the "time of the eud". indicate the  year 1917 as the last prosperous year until Messiah's kingdom shall have'come. On account of curtailment here and  there, business will hegin to languish, the people will' be  stunned' with the public debt, moralists will become disheartened, fathers aud mothers groan at the flow of blood,  social leprosy shall set in, economic conditions become  paralyzed. For six years this will continue until the last  vestige of satanic control is wiped out of the earth. If we  turn our eyes from this picture we cannot escape it,neither  can we hide our heads in tbe sand. We must face it with  all the fortitude at Our command, seek God's favors the  Bible way, and earnestly plead for the sins of the past,  change our course,and seek to know what righteousness is  and follow it with studied  persistency.  Traveling salesmen have been able to fool the business  pulse of the land, and those having reverence "for -God's  word have been enabled to sense the outcome and to give a  more or less' coucrete diagnosis of the malady- Large  wholesale houses notified their salesmen that every order  submitted to them was merely as "'offers"���������that thev  would exercise their own pleasure and reserve the right to  change every price, cut the order down,cancel any or every  part. The stiffneas and acuteness of the situation is readily discerned by'looking over the recent grocery lists of  the leading mail order houses. The sentiment seems to  be as one man expressed it, "To sit still and watch the  prices go up."  With a steadily advancing market, whatever the cause,  the ingrained selfishness in man impels him to hold what  he has for "higher prices" as a matter of "business sagacity." This ignoring of the principles.of righteoulness ex  tends from the man with a day's labor to sell to the multimillionaire.    Hence in a land of plenty there is want.  The Situation Perplexing to Many  In the editorial columns of leading papers we find ex  pressions which no doubt faithfully represent the perplexi  ty which many minds are in.-One editorial says: "The  reason or reasons for the scarcity and exorbitant prices of  the absolute necessities of life, that exists in this conn try,  no one has yet made plain." It refers to the '"hidden  causes," and wants Secretary Houston to have plenty of  money and get busy with detectives and "solve the puzzle."  Beginning with the first of June the pressure was relieved a little. Prices on flour and sugar declined. Gardening has been good, and fresh vegetables are plentiful;  potatoes found a lower level. The "food controller" legis  lation came in just right to please the financier. The individual money king had lost his grip and was becoming  helpless. J. Ogden Armour was one of these. He said:  "The prices for svheat, corn, potatoes, livestock and other  food products arc now beyond the control of any agency  other than the government. Only the government can  now prevent food prices from going up to most oppressive  heights, and only the government can assure conservation  of food stocks. I believe the solution, temporarily at least,  lies in government regulation of prices " He forthwith  proceeds to clean the financiers' skirts by laying the trou  ble to the farmer���������"ho believes in a vigorous campaign to  o-et the farmers to utilize every foot of available land as  the only alternative to hunger next winter." He says the  food shortage is world wide, and wants tho greatest possible roturn from the soil, for it's up to the American farmer to feed the world!  Pastor C. T. Russell, back in 1S9G, published a book  called "The Day of Vengeance." or "The Battle of Ar  mogeddon," and in it he takes up the causes leading on to  high prices, comparative low wages, discontent, and the  world-war with its attendant troubles. He takes np every  conceivable remedy that tho doctors of industry will use in  their malpractice to cure the   body  politic and shows the  ff  Z"\  treasonable-,' mooas  We are showing a choice stock of goods suitable for,CHRISTMAS GIFTS.

And no man need.be in ignorance as what to expect nor as to the  ultimate result, except as he may vol-  untorily refuse to learn. While the  climax is coming just a little . slower  than the pastor's expectations, yot he  has had it all mapped out for over 20  years; itnd more people would be acquainted with the facts 'if there had  not been so much dustthrown into  the eyes of .the people to becloud their  vision. , -   ���������  The Conservation of Foo^  What .about the conservation of  food? As .far as the world is concerned,,God is no respector of person.  He sends the rain and the sunshine  upon the evil and the just. Prof.,  Hicks explains that the ever-changing  planetary conditions have much to do  with ours weather,, and. that .we. are  now entering into a "Jupiter ..period,"  which lasts two years; Jupiter's influ  ence is to produce extremes���������that our  weather, whatever tho kind, will be  intensified. And, no doubt, tbe, wis-;  dom of God, permits satan (the prince  of.the power of-the air���������Eph. 2:2) to  have some liberties', and the adversary  of both God and'man.takes advantage'  of imperfect conditions in,.man, eaith  and atmosphere, and augments'.the  power in storms, causing them to be  more severe, making hot weather hotter, cold-weather colder, dry woather  drier, wet weather wetter, etc. This  will continue until satan is bound for  a thousand years by Christ's kingdom;  Quoting St. Paul: "We wrestle not  against flesh and blood, but against  wicked spirits (of which satan is chief)  in heavenly places (unseen of men),  against wicked powers and the rulers  of the darkness of this age," and "the  god of this age" is satan. (Eph. 6:1.2;  2 Cor. 4:4.) The thing meant by  "rulers of the darkness" is that satan  has the power of deception���������he hides  the truth, and makes superstition,  credulity and pharisaical holiness  stand out as prime virtues to be emulated. He makes everything that  "isn't so" popular. (2 Cor. 11:L3 15 )  Saton has the world upside down;and  Christ's kingdom coming in is going  to place everything right side up. JNo  wonder we have commotion and dizzi  ness and perplexity world-wide. The  people are. beginning to listen. Satan  is losing patience with his dupes, and  now he is busy "casting out satan"  (Matt. 12:26) by various devices���������  the poor human family has lost the  friendship hs satan���������satan has become ".mad" and the world can't copo  with him. Tho third cause of high  prices is that satan's kingdom is  bringing its legitimate fruit���������the  famine feature of the "time of trouble  such    as   never   was."    (Dan.     12:1;  Matt.   24:21:22;- Ezok.   7:1-27,   6:8  14.)

The irreverence  of the people has already been pointed  out by some noble souls, who  deplore  the.fact that God is ignored   in   every  transaction of man, and   especially in  the conservation of food   where   the  providences of God are such an   important factor.    To meet   the   food  situation,   Secretary   Houston   told  the senate the department   of   agriculture needs the following authority   aad   power:    "To   make a complete   survey  of  the food supply of  the   nation, with a  view  to   secure  full information as to   its   location,  ownership, and where it is   needed,  and   complete   knowledge as to the  instrumentalities and  agencies  that  own, control, manufacture and dis  tribute food products" He said this  powershould also include the taking  -   over and   operation of   the   plants, I 'ay   and : the   sun   comes out, and  see if prices do not go soaring again.  Every year it does. Why should  this year be any different'from any  other year? This undue and unprincipled manipulation of "food control" by "combines" or trusts after  it leaves the producer, we give as  the fourth reason for high prices.  Since 18'16, religious, money  and  commercial trusts   have  multiplied  add waxed great.and are the "giants"  of our day  doomed   to  destruction,  paralleling   the   destruction of  the  "giants" in .Noah's day."  (Matt. 24:  37.39; Gen. 6jl 5.)  The.government  has a law to control, trusts,-  bht  the  power   of, that-law isknown-by its  fruitsV Rockefeller endows a college  or does something forphilanthropyi  and up goes the price of coal oil; he  buys $10,000,000  worth  of liberty  loan bonds, and gasoline-.responds to  a twist of the jack-screws. The sugar  trust was "dissolved" some time ago',  and up went the price of sugar. The  tobacco trust was divided  and  subdivided hy order of the courts,' but  tobacco took an immediate  advance  ���������and continues to go up, regardless  of the report of a very large  crop in  1916.    When   the   allied   forces of  Wall   street ' beat   a   hasty   retreat  shortly'  and   go   into   hiding, the  trusts .and  monopolists   will   melt  away and give the people  a  chance  to breathe.  Shylock uses his tools (press  agents) to cause "contrary winds"  ���������favorable "trade\vinds"���������to blow  upon the "stock exchanges"  "Winds" from the northwest bring  much damage to growing crops���������  prices go up; next day the   "winds"  factories, etc, whenever such  courses may be necessary in the  public interest.  Mr. Houston himself said that  aside from wheat and potatoeTthere  has been no indicated shortage of  foodstuffs; and theu .proceeds.': to  quote statistics showing a 40,000,000  bushel surplus of wheat in the country, admitting he could not determine the cause of high wheat prices.  We know, too, there has been no  shortage of potatoes. There may  have been a spoilage, or wholesale  dumping in the rivers, but no short  age.  Will Conservation  Cure the  Malady?  The "wise men" of the earth have  hearts that beat as one. Their eyes  are focused upon food production.  They want the barns, granaries and  storehouses filled to the roof. Watch  and see if prices do not seek a lower  level for a few weeks, until all the  warehouses are bursting with tbe  transfer from the producers'hands  to the hands of Fiuancialdom; then,  prices decline. A "peace wind"  blows from the east, causing a further decline; next day the "rumor"  is denied-^���������and prices advance.

There has just been  issued   a   map  of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest   that  has  been mentioned in  dispaches since the   Canadian   forces  first landed in France.    It  has   been  made especially for the great Canadian   weekly, the   Family   Herald and  Weekly   Star   of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to   Candian   enterprise.  It   is a   marvel of  detail and yet not  crowded.    It' is   in   four colors  and  about 2^-x3|-������feet-aud  folded   into   a  very neat cover, about  5x10   inches.  The map is surrounded by-a border of  the   regimental ' badges  and   coat of  arms  of nearly  every battalion that  left Canada, -from'  Halifax   to   Vancouver.' -Every important  point  can  be recognized at once.   That portion  of the map covering .France is   in a  soft color with  names ' of   towns  and  battle scenes in   black,   easily   recognizable.     The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most   complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will    use, at  less   than  two dollars a  copy, yet it can    be   had   absolutely  free with The FamilyHerald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate 81.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  muehjarger increase in the subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family' Herald and Weekly Star  should be still greater when this offer  becomes known.

This kind of rough  talk will be heard less here in town if  people troubled with corns will follow  the simple advice of this Cincinnati  authority, who claims that a few drops  of a drug called freezone when applied  to a tender, aching corn stops soreness  at once/and soon the corn dries up  and lifts right out without pain.  He says freezone is an ether compound which dries immediately and  never inflames or even irritates tho  surrounding tissue or skin. A quarter  of an ounce of freezone will cost very  little at any drug store, but is sufficient to removo every hard or soft  corn or callus from one's feet. Millions  of American women will welcome this  announcement since tho inauguration  of the high heels.  The Sun rend is   read   by   every  body in the Kettle valley.
