They accuse  you of being mine son. Say you  ain't,   say   anydings but   that; but  AN EXTRAORDINARY  WAR JOURNAL  One of the most extraordinary pa  pers ever issued is the Wipers (Ypres)  Times. Patrick MacGUi, author of  The Great Push and other popular  books, and now a soldier in France,  describes its unusual beginning:  In the early part of 191C   a   major  and    a    sergeant   of the British army  discovered  an   old  printing   house in  the city of Ypres.     Part of the  house  was blown into the street; the remainder was lying on the   printing   press,  and the type was scattered   here   and  there. The sergeant, who had  been   a  printer   in private life, declared    that  he could get the press to work   if   the  otlieer would give him  permission and  find help.    Both were obtained.    The  soldier dug the type out of   the   mud  and    washed   it, and   somehow   they  found paper and ink.     British officers  became   journalists,   printers'   devils  and proofreaders.    Soldiers   in  khaki  forgot hate of the Hun  for  the   time  being and set themselves to   work   to  prof luce the Wipers Times.  They edited one number in a  casemate under    the   ramparts   built    by  Vauban ages ago; the}7  produced  an-  come to tink, dat nose of yours!

I have not   written   any  letters  for some time.  I sent you a card from  Rouen    when    I was going on leave.  The night of the day   the   armistice  was signed I was in Arras on my way  to Paris, and while in Paris I was too  bus}'to write.  I was there eight  days  and had one straight round   of   pleasure.     But  I   managed to get my pic-  ture.'taken, and   will   enclose   one, iu  this letter.  I am away up iu Belgium  now.     Yesterday   I   was   in Namur.  Some good town, about as  big as   Toronto.  The stores are   full   of   everything   to_  make   life   happy.   Lots,of  booze and lots of girls. The two latter  I-steared. clear-of.  The prices are   sky  high���������cigarettes' are   about -75c for  ten,   and   everything in   proportion;  and  all_ the   money is German. .-But  the Heinies are far  from   here   now,  and I suppose everything will be fixed  up in time.   I can'c tell yon how often  I can write, as we are ouly a  day   or  two at a plane, and when we move no  mail   is   sent  out, but I will   do   my  best.    I am allowed   to tell   where   I  am located now, so if you look on the  map of Belgium you will find the city  of Fle'urus,   where I   am writing this  letter.     I  expect   to ' spend   Christmas      in    GJermany,    but   I  do   not  know    for. sure, nor do I care,   as   I  want to get back to   Canada.    I have  been    twice across Belgium and in all  the large cities.     I have been all over  France, and I don't want to   see   any  more, but I can't tell you when I will  be home.    I told you when   the    war  would end, but I can't tell you  when  I will be home,-nor can I even guess.  I  would like to send   you   something,  but I am flat broke and no  credit   in  my book and payday is a long way'off-  Paris certainly finished me.  Well, old  pal,  1 am goidg to   enclose  four   pictures.     You will give one of each   to  Mrs. 11���������; the others you   will   keep.  I hope you get them all right, but the  mail service   is very uncertain.    Tell  Nat   Taylor   I   will   write to him as  soon as I can.    I am going to ring off  now with regards to all.

FRIDAY, DFCEMBER 27, 1918  WATGH THE FINISH  Real romance was contained the other clay  in the news columns of the city papers. It was  the comment on the beginning of four of the  principal men to sit at the peace table in Europe���������David Lloyd George, premier of England; George Clemenceau, premier of France;  Victor Emanuel Orlando, premier of Italy,  and Thomas Woodrow Wilson, president of  the United States. Names we all know so  well that we never'think of associating ro-  .mance with them.  Wherein the origin of these raen? Read  this: Out of a cobbler's shopvin Wales; out of  a village doctor's office in France; from a farm  on the island of Sicily; out of the plain home  of a Presbyterian minister in Virginia���������thus  the' humble beginning of these four men who  have risen to the greatest position of their respective countries, and who'' today have the  destinies of the world in their hands.  It is very much like preaching to outline  what these men did when they were young,  and lay it before you as a model on which to  pattern your life. Nevertheless, the fact that  all these four rose from humble, two of them  from obscure, beginnings, is worth more than  passing consideration. There is no necessity  to point the moral, it is obvious. Their attainments are a reminder of the verse:  "The heights by great men reached and kept,  Were not attained by sudden flight;  But they, while their companions slept,  Were toiling upward in the night."  In other words they set out to accomplish,  kept their eye on the main chance,so tospeak,  and never let themselves be diverted' by the  clamor or insistence of people who had other  means to serve. To put it briefly, they always  improved their job.  It interesting to note that George Clemenceau in his younger days fought what we now  term Bolshevikism. At that time it was in the  form of the Commune, and he opposed it so  desperately, seeing what a menace it was,that  he was sentenced to death, and is alive today  owing to having escaped from Paris.  Bolshevikism is synonymous with destruction. It has no aim in sight except to destroy,  and no one knows whatjit hopes to accomplish  or how it may benefit. It is seen at its worst  in Europe, but is prevalent in all parts of this  continent, in some parts working insidiously,  while in other places boldly and flagrantly.  No wonder George Clemonceau, a man with  constructive ideals, fought it desperately and  now that it has loomed up stronger and more  widespread, it is well "that he and his colleagues are men who have risen, since they  better know wnat they have to deal with.  Construction and destruction are at all times  warring elements. It is bad enough for a man  to stand idly by and see what is being done,  but it is a crime for anyone possessing any  ideals whatever to condone destruction in any  shape, whether it be wasting time, making  materials or machinery useless���������sabotage���������or  whatever form it may take.  It is a crime against one's ceuntry to assist  in an orgy of ������destruction, but the greatest  crime is against one's self.  finding fault with the way things are done���������  this is as ������Bolshevik in its tendency as the  policy of the uncloer who sets out deliberately  to destroy.  Take another stand���������help to build up, construct, make suggestions, and so improve  yonrself and your immediate surroundings  that by-and-by you will have risen and will  have seen that right is always right, and in the  end right must prevail.  A press dispatch today states that Nicholas Romanoff, late czar of Russia, and his  family are still alive. The late czar has been  reported butchered by the Bolsheviki on several occasions. Today's report may be true,  and it may not. Anyway, it was a miscarriage of justice to put the ex-czar to death  and allow the ex-kaiser to run at large.  (T  :=^  Wishing you all  38>to Umt  A.D.MORRISON mnSSifS������^m  %=  Because so many people have the grippe  and recover from it, there is a tendency to regard it lightly. Figures tell another story.  According to information that the American  government has gathered, the recent epidemic  in that country caused eighty thousand deaths  in forty-six cities. That is more than all the  deaths from every cause in the American ex  peditionary force, from the time it landed in  France unt'T hostilities ceased.  rand Forks Transfer Company  DAVIS 8 HANSEN, Proprietors  City Baggage and General Transfer  Goal and Wood For Sale  Office at R.

A destructive policy, steady criticism of your  work, the method sof the firm you  work for,  In the manufacturing, commercial and financial fields tremendous preparations are being  made in England to meet the future. In July,  1910, Premier Lloyd George appointed a special committee, under the cnairmanship of Rt.  Hon. Lord Balfour, to consider the commercial and industrial policy to be' followed after  the war. While this committee was conducting its investigations, special committees appointed by the board of trade (which is a department of the British government) were active in consideration of definite proposals affecting the most important and stable trades.  These included the iron and steel, engineering, electrical and non-ferrous metal trades;  the woollen and worsted, silk, linen, cotton,  jute and shipbuilding industries; the carpet  associations, the lace and embroidery trades  and the cotton hosiery and fabric glove industries. Inquiries were largely confined to supply of raw materials, production and marketing.

SYNOPSIS  OF ���������*  LAND ACT AMENDMENT  Pre-emption now confined to surveyed  lands only.  Records will be granted covering only  land suitable for agricultural purposes .  and which is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions, with  Joint residence, but each making necessary improvements on respective claims.  Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  five years and make improvements to  value of $10 per acre, Including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  Intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of $300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make improvements or record  same will operate as forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record another pre-emption, if he requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.  Unsurveyed areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained after fulfilling residential and improvement conditions.  For grazing and industrial purposes,  areas exceeding 640 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persons joining and serving  with His Majesty's Forces. Tho time  within which the heirs or devisees of a  deceased pre-e/nptor may apply for  title under this Act is extended from  one year from the death of such person,  as formerly, until one year after the  conclusion of the present war. This  privilege is also made retroactive.  TOWNSITE PROPERTY ALLOTMENT  ACT.  Provision is made for the grant *o  persons holding uncompleted Agreements to Purchase from the Crown of  such proportion of the land, if divisible,  as the payments already made will  cover in proportion to the sale price of  the whole parcel. Two or more persons  holding such Agreements may group  their interests and apply for a proportionate allotment Jointly. If it is not  considered advisable to divide the land  covered by an application for a proportionate allotment, an allotment of land  of equal value selected from availablo  Crown lands In the locality may be  made. These allotments are conditional  upon payment of all taxes due the  Crown or to any municipality. The  rights of persons to whom the purchaser from the Crown has agreed to  sell are also protected. Tho decision of  the Minister df Lands in respect to the  adjustment of a proportionate allotment  Is final. The time for making application for these allotments is limited to  the 1st day of May, 1919. Any application made after this date will not be  considered.

Lawrence  Hopkins,  of Oxford, Alabama.  '���������They're off!  ''It pends a thrill through you as  you bear their cry and rise up and  find yourself iD a crowd of men;  pausing a moment to light, our pipes  or "cigarettes, and as we are hurrying  forward.with glistening steel in. our  hand? to meet the foe.  "if it were not for these.other men  moving along heavily laden to keep  pace with the barrage' one might  well stand in amazement at a wilder  ne-s suddenly become crowded with  swaying humanity bravely attempting to weather the furious storm.  "The   big   guns   roll   like heavy  bunder, the little field batteries answer   with    a   bark, shells  scream,  whistle,   howl,   according   to  their  moods.  .    "Tbe quick staccato  coughing   of  maching guns goes  on   unceasingly  all around you and is sw-illowed up  in its echoes.  There is" a  spatter  of  rifle bullets as they whiz by you and  you wonder that you are untouched.  Barbed wire tears   your   clothes to  pieces;   mud  sticks  them   together  again.    Birds fly at your   feet   and  from the sky winged airplanes swoop  down. Spitfire tanks plod on behind,  crashing' and    crushing;   burning,  boiling oil sends  flames leaping   to  the  clouus;   molten   phosphorus is  . \ oured into    dugouts. There is gas  to blind and choke you.  "There are laughs and cries; tbe  laugh of a comrade as he struggles  on, or th-i cry of another as he drops  his rifle and puts bis hand to bis  heart���������his last cry. There is the yell  of tbe hunter, the wild crying despair of the hunted. The plunk of  tbe mortars and the buarsting of the  bombs add to the tumult of the  storm.  "Stretcher-bearers rush to and fro,  running zig zag across the battlefield  with their messages.    Then I drop  into a shell hole, the cold sweat run  ning off my face, and breathe. Take  my compass out, get   direction   adjusted and when tbe barrage lifts  I  dive,jnto the tornado again���������and so  on.    Germans  are  scarce; they are  down below.   'Moppers  up' behind  will deal with them.    Over   broken  trenches and torn -ground, slipping,  failing, sprawling, I go for our  objective, As the curtain  of   fire and  "The noise increases, the guns get  more angry,   shells and  showers   of  mud and   dirt are falling all around  you. The devil seems to   be  raking  out his furnacas,   the sky seems to  crash down on you, then   my   head  swims, my arms falls to   my   sides,  my legs grow limp and I.drop down  as 1 hastily don my gas mask.  And  when I open my eyes and find   myself  I  am   on a stretcher and some  one with a'.'smile all over his bronzed  face offers me cigarette.  "Yes, we ran the Huns for six  days and five nights, and I did not  want to eat or sleep I tell you it was  grand, and if I hadn't been gassed I  feel like I could still be running  them. We started on tbe 24th day  of July, my birthday, and, mother,  dear, I took no prisoners.  "A German officer said to his  men: 'Why do you run; is not Gott  mit you?' And the German soldiers  answered: 'Yes, but the Americans  are mit the French.'"  Enemy machines were now swarming as thick as gnatsbn a summerday.  He dived and eight of his foes hurtled  like stones in pursuit.    Wounded and  half fainting, yet with his   brain 'still,  alert   and   cool, he realized that   his  only  chance   of   safety   lay in sheer]  8uper������airmanship.    Enemy  craft flew  above and about him like a cloud   of  vultnrea, until those   watching  below  counted between fifty_and   sixty.   In  the thick of them this amazing  Canadian   performed    every   ���������'stunt" in  ���������genuity sharpened   by  dire  necessity  could devsie.  He escaped by the   incredible daring of his offensive  tactics.    For  up  wards   of   ten   minutes   he banked,  looped,    spun,    nose-dived,    climbed  again in a multitude of  "star"  tricks  until he worked his way right back of  the vultures'midst.    Two  more fell to  his   gnn, then the rest  of   the   flock  spread   and1 fled.     He came down a  huddled,   insensible,    but   victorious  hero of as great o 6ght  as  ever   this  war witnessed in the air.

FOUGHT 60 'PLANES  SINGLE-HANDED  Canadian military   headquarters in  London announces   that the  airman  who, while desperately wounded, fonght  sixty enemy machines single-handed,  destroying four   and    bringing down  six,    is   a   Canadian,   Major    W. G.  Barker, D. S. O.  (two   bars), D. F. C,  M.C.   (with  bar),   and    the   Italian  Cross of Honor. Major   Barker,   who  is   reported   dangerously    wounded,  went overseas with a New Brunswick  unit.  The story of  Major   Baker's fight  with a horde of enemy planes relates  the most astounding individual  aerial  combat on record.  While our  airmen  were   harrying  the enemy's retreat,  Barker, when over the forest of Mor  val, encountejed a two-seater German  plane at an altitude of 21,000 feet   to  evade   the   fire of British ',Archies,"  and climed and brought it down. Immediately a  Fokkcr  biplane whirled  on him; bullets whistled past through  his machine  and   something  stunned  him for a moment so that his machine  spun   uncontrolled.    Recovering   his  senses  and   control,   he found fifteen  more  Fokkers   hemming  in  on him  and firing point-blank. Without hesitation he sped to the attack and three  of his assailants fell, but  the  bullets  were   whistling  past  like-hail, and a  chance shot shattered his thigh   bone.  He   fainted   and   dived seemingly to  his death.  51.'Statutes or B.:C 1897,'for an Act to be en-  tituied "The.GaVade Water, Power &  Light  Company Limited ;Act 1897, Amendment Act  1918". giving,'it-ppwer .'to reduce its capital  irom time to timer atl 'it may see fit-by vote of  a majority in vuine of the shareholders present or repre8wpte_i?by proxy :at a .meeting  called for thatp'urpose, and - also confirming  the reduction of. capital heretofore made by  the Company on or about the 6th November,  1907, and also changing the timeof the. holding   of    the^.'Comp'a'ny's   ordinary    General  Meeting from the':5third Wednesday in July in  ench year tdihe'third]Wedricsdny. in October  in each year, or on. such other date in each  year as the Directors-may from time to time  determine upon;  and also empowering- the  Directors of the'Company to make bylaws,  rules and  regulations to  be observed  by all  persons using the 'water', electricity or electrical appliances'or other-property of  the  Company; also rules and regulations for "the  maintenance of' the Company's undertaking  and for the colfection of rates for electrity or  water supply and rents for electrical lines and  appliances let for hirei and for fixing the time  or times when, and the place or places where  the same shall be payable and in case of de  fault of payment to provide remedies for en  forcing the payment- thereof; and for such  further   and   incidental  powers  as  may  be  necessary.
