Tbe paramount duty of the year  is to do all in our power to assist in  the prosecution of tbe war to such  a complete victory that a lasting  peace may -be assured. In this connection I would commend to our  people the census of Canada's man  power which is being taken in this,  the national service, week.  It is the duty of us all to see that  the various patriotic funds are kept  as far and as long as the need for  them exists, which, it is the hope of  every.Briton, may not be beyond  the end of this new year.  I would ask of every man and  woman in British Colnmbia that  they lend a hand in making this  province ready for the brave men  who will be returning to it as soon  as the war is over. No one.can doubt  its wonderful resources, and to their  development I ask its.people to devote their efforts in 1917  H. C. Brewster.  BETWEEN THE TRENCHES t  Sapping deeper, the French engineers had countermined their foes,  and very early in the evening, with  a thunderous explosion, they blew  up tbe German position. Many  Germuns were killed, but some escaped and ran for their nearest  trench. The French leaped their  embankment and dashed forward to  occupy the crater that the explosion had made; but the enemy's  fire drove them back. So, now,  French and Germans faced one another not thirty yards apart, with  the demolished trench between  them, neither army ab.e to occu  py it.  None dared show his head above  the trench, for - aharpshooteiS  watched with keen eyes and ready  rifles from the opposite positions. A  great silence reigned, broken ��������� only  by the agonizing cries of the wound  ed who were unable to erasvl back  to their lines.  Gradually the cries of these unfortunates ceased, all except one,  whose pileous wails filled the air:  "Hilfe! Hilfe! Urn Gottes witten!"  he repeated over and over again.  But none dared go to him.  The hot sun shone down merci  lessly upon the half-buried, suffering man. He was severely wounded  and pinioned beneath the fallen  timbers of the trench. It appeared  he must die a slow and agonizing  death, with help so near, yet so far;  with power so close to him, yet so  impotent.  "Help! Help! For God's sake  help mel" he kept groaning.  His voice became weaker and  weaker.  ' Water! Water���������oh give me water!" he moaned. But none dared  t6 help him.  Suddenly, with utter disregard oi  the danger, a tall, slim, young  French captain leaped to the top of  his trench. A shot sang past him  instantly, but he fearlessly held  aloft his band to command attention. Then he shouted to the imprisoned German, "Tell your comrades to come and letch you! We  will not fire. We give our'' word."  He jumped down inside again.  The wounded man heard. Summoning his last remaining strength  he raised his voice and cried the  message aloud to his comrades.  There was a short conference inside the German trench. Then four  tall soldiers in the uniform of the  Prussian Gnard climbed over the  parapet and advanced boldly into  the open, carrying a stretcher. They.  faced a hundred rifle barrels, but  there was no shot. The word of  honor had been passed, and meu  were acting as human beings, eav-  ing instead of destroyiug  Quickly the Germans reached  their comrade. A heavy beam of  the demolished trench had fallen  upon him and crushed both ���������- legs.  Working with a will, they soon had  him released, and, placing him on  the stretcher, they bore him away  to the safety of their trench.  A' moment later some sixty Prussian helmets were hoisted enthusiastically on rifles above the trench,  and in a mighty chorus there came  tbe shout, "Thank you, comrades,  thank you.'"*  The French captain climbed upon  the trench, bowed courteously, and  responded, "It was our pleasure,  comrades. Now to our duty again."  And pitiless war reigned once  more between the lines.  Divine , services at the Presbyterian church next Sabbath, January 7, as follows: 11 a.m. the Sac  rament of the Lord's Supper will be  dispensed at the close of the service.  Any member of any evangelical  church who wishes to participate in  the service will be made welcome.  The ordination of .the two members  of- the congregation elected to the  eldership will also take place at this  service. All members especially  are expected to be present. Sunday  school and adult Bible class, 2:30  p.m. Th* young people in the city  who have no church affiliation or  Sunday school connection are cordially iuvited. At the evening ser  vice the pastor will preach on the  topic, "The Cill ol God to Us in  the New Year." All young people in  the congregation are earnestly requested to be present, and young  men and young women in the city  who have no church home are specially invited.  The public school will re-open on  Monday next. Beginners will not  be received until February 3, when  the spring term begins.  POST OFFICE AT  After a Two Years' Fight the  People of Columbia Gain  Their Object  Mayor ' Acres today received word from Hon. Martin Burreli, minister of agriculture and member for Yale-  Cariboo, saying that the post  office department had definitely decided to re-establish  the post office in the West  end shortly under the name  of West Grand Forks.  This will be good news to  the/esidents of that section  of the city, who have been  making a strenuous fight for  the post office ever since its  disestablishment, about two  years ago. Up to the time of  its discontinuance, the office  was known as Columbia.

FEIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1917  A great deal of talk has been indulged in on  street corners during the past week regarding  the city's financial condition. This is a favorite  topic before evevy civic election.    Whenever  the  subject  is under discussion, some people  persist in drawing a darker picture of .he  future  than  the facts seem to warrant.    There  is no need for any alarmist  views   respecting  the matter'.    The city will be able to meet all  her obligations for some years to come.    But  owing  to .the  lax  method of conducting the  city's affairs in pioneer days, when the sinking-  fund was jiot properly taken care of, it is quite  probable  that  in  1919  and 1920 debentures  will have to issued to take up some of bonds  i that will mature during those years.    In  fact  this is the only way in which these obligations  can be met.    But for this condition of things  none  of fhe  councils of recent years are responsible.    As a matter of fact, *the past  two  councils  have   redeemed . several    blocks  of  bonds  that had. several years -to run to maturity.  -The present indications are that the 1917  council'will be composed largely of the past  year's council.  There are two vacancies on the board of  school trustees to be filled at the election next  week. In past years the electors have not  taken as much interest in nominating candidates for members of the board as the importance of the oflice would warrant. The holdover members of the board would like to .see  this state of affairs altered this year.  Most of, the good New Year's resolutions  made by the young men of Grand Forks have  been submarined by this time.  The physical work we do and the outdoor  exercise-we take gives us bodily strength to do  our daily indoor work.  Eng'r ThoB.

If idle moments were spent tilling idle land  the high cost of living would vanish.  Mother Earth and God's own sunshine will  cure more ills than a host of doctors.  Some of our citizens affect to believe that  when the revenue for the liquor licenses ceases  on the first'of Jul}7, taxes in the city will rise  to such an altitude that'a person will have to  be a millionaire to hold, a piece of property.  This a premature and altogether unnecssary  worry. Every property owner knows that for  several years past the tax rate in the city has  been 30 mills. To raise it any higher would  require an amendment to the Municipal  Clauses Act. This disposes of the higher  taxes bugbear.

During  that week every male British sub  je'Jt in Cdhada between ihe ages of  16 and 65 is required to (iJJ in and  forward to Ottawa a National. Service card. The object of these cards  is to as-certain where it is possible to  make adjustments :.n ihe nationa  life which will economize lab-rr and  permit the release of those males  who wish io serve in the Canadian  army in Europe; the object is also  to assist the government in attaining the highest possible point of  production and efficiency with the  population r maining in the country.
