Masquerade at Riverside
It is not only on the field that
the members of the. Kettle Valley
Grass Hockey Club shine. This
was more than proved when they,
held their Second Annual Masquerade Ball- in the Riverside Hall,
Rock* Creek, last Friday. They
showed themselves adepts as hosts
and hostesses. They certainly had
taken infinite ^pains to see that
nothing had been left undone' to
make the evening a perfect one of
The hall was crowded, many of
whom had come from a., long diB-
tance, and showed their' unstinted
appreciation of Bush's famous
orchestra in their repeated demands for encores. The musio
was certainly largely responsible
for the success of the dance. The
hall presented a very pretty picture with ' the many bright costumes.
An excellent supper was provided and it was a busy time for
those who worked in the kitchen
and at waiting.

judges, Mr. Griffith of Grand

Turn Out Many Pounds
Poultry Feed
Money can be saved in feeding poultry through the owning of the useful
feed grinders which aro now sold.
This year the corn crop is generally
good and corn meal for the mash can
be produced at home. A bone grinder
in the course of a year will turn out
quite a few pounds of "poultry' feed
from the bones that might be wasted.

is even more essential for Eaby. Remedies primarily prepared
'for grown-ups axe not interchangeable. It was the need of
a remedy for the common ailments of Infants and Childrea
that brought Castoria before the public after years of research,
and no claim has been made for it that its use for over 30

Castoria is a harmless substitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric,
Drops and Soothing Syrups. It is pleasant. It contains
neither Opium, Morphine nor other narcotic substance. Its
age is its guarantee. For more than thirty years it has
been in constant use for the relief of Constipation, Flatulency,
Wind Colic and Diarrhoea; allaying Feverishncss arising
therefrom, and by regulating the Stomach and Bowels, aids

Paul sent Onesimus back to Philemon
with this letter. This is one of- the
most tender and beautifuj letters ever
written,^and the first anti-slavery peti-

as a fellow-laborer in the Gospel of
truth. He makes mention of Apphia,
Philemon's wife, and Archippus, tho
son, who had already enlisted as a fellow-soldier.
ill. Philemon's Reputation (vv. 4-7).
I Paul paid a fine tribute to Philemon,
reminding him that he never prayed
without bearing him up before God.
! This is a fine example of tact on the
'part of the minister."
I 1. His faith and love toward tho
Lord and all saints (v. 5).. It was
his hope and. desire that this faith
might bear fruit in Christ Jesus.
2. His ministry to the saints (v. 7).

the poor saints. %
III. Paul's Request (vv. 8-1G).
He requested Philemon to receive
