McArdle,  McCallum,   Schnitter   and, Webster'  we're present at the regular meeting  of   the   city    council   on   Monday  evening.  A letter from Hon. Martin Bur-  rell, federel member for this district,  stated that the government was njw  endeavoring to settle the labor troubles iu the Crow's Nest coal fields.  A letter from Principal Glasspell,  of the public school, stated/that he  had either lost or destroyed by mistake his last month's cheque, and  he asked the council to issue a new  one. The clerk was instructed to  stop payment on the old cheque  and to issue a new one.  . ���������' "Aid. Harkness was granted leave  of absence from attendance at meetings for a short time.  Inspector   of   Dairies   Quinlivan  submitted a report.    All   the 'large  dairies   were  in  sanitary condition  and   were   being .conducted -in ac,  cordance'with the'government regu-  ' laiions, but that a great number  of  toe premises of persons in  the  city  who  kept  from   one to three cows,  and who sold milk, were uusanitary.  A  number   of .the   barns    needed  .  whitewashing, and the   removal   of  man ure  piles ;. was   also required to  bring the   premises  up to a'-proper  compliance with the milk   vendors'  bylaw.    The mayor  expressed   decided   views   in   favor  of   making  everyone   who   sold   miik  comply  .  with the regulation  of   the   bylaw.  He   thought   that   more   sickness  originated from impure   milk   than  from any   other   cause.  . The other  members of council shared his views  on this subject, and it   was  decided  to strictly enforce the provisions   of  the bylaw.    On  motion,.the  inpec  tor was instructed to  make another  visit to those whose   premises   were  not up to the requirements  of   the  bylaw, and to notify thorn  that  the  same'must   be put  in yi������itary condition by Saturday, June 23, or they  would be Habit to be summoned before the police magistrate.  The chairman of the finance committee recommended i,]im.i, the tax  rate for the curreni yi-.ty he fixed  at 30 mills, and that a lebale of 10  per'cent on the toiai uon.umt be allowed if . the taxes are paid on or  before- August 2'A. Both recommendations were adoptnd. IJe also  recommended that a tax sale be held  works reported having put up four  "danger" signs, warning motor car  drivers, and that the committee  contemplated commencing some now  work in the near future by graveling  Bridge street, at an estimated cost  of $200. He was authorized to proceed with .the -work. Aid. McCallum suggested that the board, when  they graded..the street, experiment  with sinking one one or two wooden  manholes for 'drainage purposes.  The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported that the  back yard of  the  Sheads   block   on  SCRfPTION  LL TNTRODUCEO  Young Unmarried Men Go  First���������-Ten"'Glasses-'  Named  Brjdge street was in .an unsanitary  condition.  Aid.. Schnitter was granted' leave  lo introduce a street sprinkling bylaw, which was advanced to the  reading stage. - ^  Aid. McArdle gave notice that at  the next- meeting he would ask  leave to introduce a tax rate and  levy bylaw, and also, a tax' rebate  bylaw.  GliftonrSpraqgett  Knox   Presbyterian   church    was  the scene of a very   pretty   wedding  on Tuesday   morning,   when   Miss  May   Spraggett,   of   this   city, was  united   to' Ivan  L. Clifton,   Great  Northern agent.at Keremeos.    The  church had been prettily   decorated  with white lilacs and snowballs, and  a large congregation was  present   to  witness  the ceremony.    The bride  entered   the   church   on tne arm of  Her '-fatherr-H)  Spraggett.    She was  dressed in white satin georgette crepe  overdrape,trimmed with pearl beading; had a  white embroidery   veil  with orange blossoms, and carried a  bouquet of white roses.   Miss Jessie  Spraggett,    who wore.a" pink   satin  hand embroidered gown, a pink hat  trimmed, with pinkrpses and carried  a shower bouquet of pick and white  roses' and "sweet   peas,  and, Miss  Flossie Spraggett, who wore c maize  braid, a hat to match trimmed with  pink roses and gold braid, and   carried a shower bouquet similar to that  of her sister, acted  as   bridesmaids.  The groom was supported by  E.   C.  Woodward   and   Norman   Fleming,  both   of  this city.    The music was'  rendered by the Knox church choir.  At the conclusion of the  ceremony  the wedding party and a large number of guests drove.to the  home  of  the bride's father, in tbe West end,  where   a   wedding   breakfast    was  served.    Many costly presents were  received by the happy  couple  from  friends in this city  and   elsewhere.

We think, if j  things are considered in their irue  light, our greater respect is due to the  poker player. He gambles with money,  while the other gambles with our food-  stoods. The poker player is a gambler, while those who are permitted  to advance the price of commodities  are thieves and robbers.  Many thousands of dollars that  should be going into the Red Cross  and Patriotic Fund today can not be  spared on account of tho excessive  prices of living, and ever}'   dollar   in  excess of legitimate prices is that  much blood money wrung from our  men at the front and tho dependents  at home.  For a long time there has been talk  of investigations and control of food  prices; but talk is cheap; and while  the talk is going on the prices are  steadily rising. Tho people of Canada  have surely been patriotic enough to  have their endeavors and sacrifices suf  ficiently appreciated by our government that the food hogs be put where  tney properly belong. Of what use is  it to cultivate vacant lots and back  yards if the profits gained thereby are  pilfered by still higher prices'? Saving  at the bunghole and wasting at the  spigot will not accomplish any more  than.the cheap.talk about control of  food pri������es.  What must be done is for every  council, board of trade, 1. O. D. E.,  Red Cross and Patriotic sociolv to de-  niand a readjustment und complete,  control of food prices.

It is intended to impose a tax on  incomes above a certain amount,  and quite probably to go farther.  Under the law as it stands at  present the government gets one-  fourth of business profits between 7  and 15 per cent, one-half between  15" and 20 per cent, and three-  quarters above 20 per cent.  Last year's taxation was substantially productive. By its operation  three firms contributed amounts in  excess of ������600,000, two in excess  of $300,000, four over $200,000,and  fourteen over ������100,000.  ��������� The income tax which is now proposed, it is expected will yield a  considerable sum when it is put into  operation.

The Canadian Pacific railways is getting so  many knights that some comprehensive  scheme of daylight saving seems to be urgently, needed on that line.  <T  FRIDAY, JUNE 1.7, 191.7  Sir Robert  Borden's  conscription   bill, introduced  in   the  house last Monday, closely  follows the lines of President Wilson's  selective  measure.    This  fact does   not   detract  from its merit.   Tt is generally conceded  that  conscription is needed in this country in order  to obtain the  necessary  soldiers to reinforce  our troops at the front.    This being the case,  it follows as a natnrally sequenceythat the bill  should be enacted into  law at once, and the  necessary machinery set in motion for selecting  and training  the  recruits.    As a whole,  the bill is probably as just a one could have  been drafted,  and we   believe  that it is approved by the  Canadian people.    Politicians  who oppose it will gain only reproach.  New Westminster has renewed its liquor  licenses conditionally. If prohibition comes  in before the first of January the licensees  are debarred from claiming a rebate of any  portion of the license fee. This is the only city  in the province, we believe, that has taken-  this precaution.  e Bride's Choice  =^  Nowadays is a handsome'piece of Cut Glass.

A local scientist maintains that the earth  is solid at its centre, but that between the  centre and the crust there is a molten mass of  burning matter. The only time we ever felt  inclined to crawl down to verify this hypothesis  was after 'we had had an argument with a  small boy.  Public sentiment in this country has undergone a wonderful change regarding conscription recently. Six months ago, hand the  government gone to the country on a conscription platform, it would have been swept  from "power. Today the same issue, if opposed by the opposition, would certainly ensure its return.

MORRISON mf���������E������?(m  ^==  Jf  When it comes to economizing some people  do it by refusing to pay their bills.  Among  others who are learning new lessons in efficiency is the great Canadian housewife.  The people have begun to realize that to  win the war in the shortest possible time  means a minimum of hardship and suffering  both for the soldiery and the citizenry. To  .hasten victory more soldiers are required, and  to obtain the soldiers conscription now appears to be the only solution..  We  are  awaiting  with  some anxiety Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's attitude on  this  important  question.    If he opposes the measure a serious split in the Liberal party seems to be in-,  evitable.     A few Conservatives  would likely  go over to the Liberal party, in the event that  party should champion  anti-conscription, but  the gain thus   made'would  not balance the  defection from its own ranks.

The daily papers today announce, in flaring headlines over an Ottawa dispatch, that  the Borden government has decided to conscript wealth as well[as men. If this is true,t'he  government has stolen some the opposition's  thunder. But the dispatch in question is^too  meagre and too indefinite to formulate anything but a hap-hazard opinion from it. The  scheme.appears to be more allied to a form of  taxing profits and incomes than to a pure,  unadulterated conscription of wealth measure.

Major Edgar, now serving in Flanders, tells the following affecting  story of a dog's love and fidelity. The  dog was an Irish terrier, whose home  with a French family was destroyed  when the Germans came. 'He fled  from the ruiued house and the dead  bodies of the people he had loved, and  sought refuge with one of the British  regiments. Here one of the kindly  Tommies adopted him and named him  Army. The kindly Tommy was killed  subsequently, and the dog stationed  himself, a lonely watcher, at his  grave.  Other soldiers who came there  found and cared for him; and when  they were killed or had retired, still  others became his guardians. He  loved them all,but he never forgot his  first soldier friend and master, or  failed to watch by his grave. He re  mained on guard all through the  winter, and one morning he was found  frozen to death there.  After Army had died, the authorities gave permission for him to be  buried beside the master to whom he  had been so faithful, and-there in  Flanders is the big grave with the  little one beside it; and the dog's name  as well as that of his master is inscribed upon the cross that marks  their last earthly resting place.

Two  morals adorn the tale. One, that such a  possibility is open to every shopkeeper;  two, that with the telephone in the house*  one never needs to travel, even as. far as  the corner store. And the telephone is  just as effective in reaching outside poiuts.  No matter where you want to go, the telephone' will take you.

L_  "Up-You-Go-and-  The-Best-of-Luck"  The hospital at X is a comfortable place, and the men are in no  husry to leave there for the trenches,  says Mr. Patrick MacGill in The  Great  Push.    But  when Col. Z   Defunct Newspapers  Every month the death of a weekly  newspaper in British Columbia is. announced. In fact, there are not many  left, and of these a number are gradually getting closer to the journalistic  boneyard. There are many causes for  this. One is the rapidly increasing  cost of paper, in some instances twice  what it was three years ago. . This  .���������implies to both newspaper stock and  job printing material. The profits, if  there ever were any, have vanished,  and the outlook for the future is not  bright. The only papers that have  survived the gale is where an all-  round^rinter.is.in charge of, the me  chanical department Take The Chroni  cle, for instance. One of the pub  lishers is a linotye operator, a pressman, a job printer and a newspaper  printer, thus practically combining  four trades in one. A certain portion  of the time is allotted to each branch,  thereby saving the wages of three or  four men. The number of men in  British Columbia who combine those  four trades are very few. If The  Chronicle, with its very limited revenue, had to the depend on the services of a man who was not capable  of working a part of his time at each  trade enumerated, the paper would  not last a week. It.is noticed that  the'only papers that are still run-  ning are those that are conducted by  an all round printer and \iewepaper  man.:���������Ladysmith Chronicle.  We admire the ubiquity of the  junior member of The Chronicle staff.  But he has no advantages over The  Sun man. That person dopfinates [  ��������� this journal's individuality. He is  the editor,.reporter, business manager,  circulation manager, composing-room  force, pressman, job printer, solicitor,  collector, and last, but not least,  "devil," of this establishment. It  may seem as if this were too many  responsible positions to be appropriated by mau, but he assures us that  in nearly of these capacities, iuelud  iug, of course, that of "devil," he  has been able to hold his own with  one trade specialists in tho largest  metropolitan priuting establishments  on this continent; and we have no  reason to doubt his word, becauee we  have never yet known him to tell a lie.  "Besides perfonniug all these duties,  he is this year growing enough fruit,  potatoes and other vegetables, to feed  about one hundred families. He has  also made appication to the National  Service commissioners for an small jobs  of work they can throw his way. His  activity, he assurer me, is a blessing,  and-not a curse, as ifr-Jtoeps him from  growing grey headed worrying about  what to do next.  WIN-THE-WAE CAMPAIGN OF PUBLICITY  Ottawa, June 9.���������Never has the  power of national publicity been bo  convincingly demonstrated as in  the great British advertising campaigns, first for recruits, then for  supplementary supplies and equipment, and later for thrift and the  purchase of war savings  certificates  Along the latter lines and the allied one of production, the National service board of Canada announce the beginning of a series of  advertisements which should have  the earnest consideration of every  loyal citizen of the Dominion. To  produce more, to waste less, particularly of food���������to eliminate extravagance of every kind���������to save intelligently and systematically, and to  lend the savings to the nation  through the purchase of war savings  certificates���������these are the keynotes  of these calls to service. There is  nothing academic about them,nothing overdrawn. They are plain,'  straightforward, intensely practical  and in deadly' earnest, explaining  why and particularly how everyone  should help instead of perhaps unconsciously hindering.  The need for such a rousing campaign is only too evident, particularly to men who have recently  been overseas and had an opportunity to compare the willing service and sacrifice so general in Great  Britain and France with tbe de  tacbed, almost apathetic attitude of  so many Canadians. Though the  war has been going almost three  years and though our gallant overseas contingents have won undying  fame for Canada, most of us here at  home have hardly yet waked up to  the real nature of tbe struggle in  which we are engaged and tbe necessity that we, too, "do our bit" in  whatever way lies upon us.  It is just this detached attitude  which has prevented Canada's whole  weight being felt behind our divisions in France. From it tbe National Service board hopes to arouse  tbe nation, using straight-from-the-  shoulder advertising as a potent  means to the desired end.  pronounces them fit they must hasten  to the fighting line again.    And about  Col.   Z , or  "Up^yougo-and-the-  best-of-luek," as he is known to the  rank and file of the B. E. F., Mr.  MacGill .tells the. following characteristic story:  Five men, including Gilhooley, an  Indiau who fought in an English regiment, where he became notorious for  his mad escapades, his daredevil  pranks and his wild fearlessness, appeared before the colonel.  "How do ,.you feel?" the colonel  asked the first man.  "Not well at all," the man answered.    "I can't eat 'ardly nuffink."  "That's the sort of man required up  there," Col. Z ans^ejed.   "So up  you go and the best of luck."  "How far can you see?" the colonel  asked the next man, who had . complained that his eyesight.was bad..  "Only about fifty yards," was :the  answer.  f'Your regiment is in .trenches  scarcely twenty five yards from the  enemy," the colonel told him. "So up  you go and the best of luck."  To the third soldier, who had been  wounded, he said, "Off you go and  find, the man who wounded you"; and.  to the fourth man, who confessed that  he had never killed.a German, he  gave this advice.  "You had better double up; it's  time you hit one."       , .  Ic came to Gilhooley's turn.  "How many men have yoa killed?"'  the colonel asked.  "In and out, about fifty," Gil--  hooley answertd.  "Make it a hundied, then," said'  the colonel; "and up you .go and the  best of luck."  Conserving His Lnergy  Clarence announced his approach by  rising succession of  howls. "Oh, my  ,finger! my finger!" he cried.  "Poor   little   finger!"   his  mother  cooed.    "How did you hurt it?"  "With a hammer."  "When?"  "A   long   time     ago,"    Clarence  sobbed.  "But I didn't hear you cry."  "1 didn't cry then; I thought  you  were ont," said Clarence���������  It is reported that arrangements  have been made by .the Dominion  immigration department under  which persons desiring to travel to  or from the coast via the Great  Northern through the United States  may do so without securing the  passport which is necessary to admit men of military age into that  country.  INSTANT ACTION  SURPRISES MANY HERE  This grocer's story suprises local  people: "I had had stomach trouble.  All food seemed to sour and form gas.  Was always constipated. Nothing  helped until 1 tried huokthorn bark,  glvcerine, etc., as mixed In Adler-i-ka  ONE SPOONFUL astonished me  with its INSTANT action." Because  Adler-i-ka flushes the ENTIRE alimentary tract it relieves ANY CASE  constipation, sour stomach or gas and  prevents appendicitis. It has QUICKEST action of anything we ever sold.

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  com, root' and all, lifts right out.  This dru-j is a sticky ether compound,  but dries at once and simply shrivels  up the corn without inflaming or even  irritating tlie  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.
