Having-represented the city of. Halifax in the Commons for many years,
Sir Robert Borden for a time believed
he was no-stranger to the-good people
of the "eastern gateway i.o tlie Dominion. He was sadly undeceived, however, shortly after he laid down the
onerous .duties of premier, according
to. the Toronto Star Weekly.
Included among the' large nuinber
who pressed forward to meet him at
an informal reception in Halifax was
a middle-agi'd lady-yell known for her
interest'in child welfare.
. After tho manner of so many other
one-idea enthusiasts, thsi-lady imagined everybody else must necessarily bc
particularly interested in lier particular field, and when she got the chance
to talk to the guest of honor launched
forth into hei\7avorlto topic.
Sir Robert was bored, but did his
best to simulate a polite -interest,
though, listening with only half an ear.
Suddenly ho became all" attention
when.he realized the lady was thank-!
ing him profusely for what he had
done to make the lives of little babes
healthier and happier. He was particularly puzzled when he heard himself
referred to ;is "the greatest benefactor of- future generations, this country
has ever known.**
Sir Wilfrid. Laurier would have carried off such a situation with graceful
ease. Hon. Arthur Meighen would

of tho miners recently, bad remarked
that "bis cbickou coop was a more

to keep these men satisfied," remarked Dr. McAvoy, -"Canada would have
one of the-biggesf problems on. her
hand, bigger thau any she lias today.
I shudder to wonder what otherwise
the rosulf would have br-en." There
were 4,500 returned men in Glace liay,
to whom "a, bayonet is only a toy."
If relief had .not been given, he
would hate to think what might Imo

Ex-Kaiser Celebrates
Hindenburg's Election
Believes   it   Signifies   Restoration   Of
Hohenzollern Dynasty
Doom, Holland.���It has-.been learned that tho former kaiser at his
chateau here expounded the significance and importance of Hindenburg's
election as related to th ��-restoration
of the monarchy and the Hohenzollern
dynasty. Willielm, who seemed in
excellent spiiits, spoke for about 90
The servants were treated to a generous allowance of wine to celebrate
tho occasion.
- In spite of this celebration, il is said
by well-informed, persons, that Hindenburg's victory i.s less likely to affect the ex-kai&er, personally, than it
is ihe former crown prince, whose activity and influence in military Quarters "have been 'increasing.
��� London.���Tho Bank of England ,
statement shows tbat the British authorities are -carrying out the programme of Winston Churchill, chancellor of the exchequer, mentioned in ,y
his budget speech on Tuesday, for the
accumulation of��a larger" reserve iu
connection with the return of the gold
standard. The statement shows an
increase of  ��27,000,000 In bullion.
For the first time- since the outbreak of the Great War, the bank resumed the . publication of ghlpmenta .....
of gold abroad. Today's announcement shows ��297,000,000 worth of bar
gold was drawn.
Reflectiorr seems to have induced
certain doubts in the minds o" tho
financial' and stock exchange community concerning the effect likely to
follow the return to tho gold standariL
The fact that exchange failed to respond, as expected, by jumping to' ""
parity immediately on Chancellor
Winston- X Churchill's announcement,
created fears that it may become*
necessary to raise the bank rate fa
prevent exports of gold,, which it is7
considered, in the present state ofthe
British gold reserve, cannot be afforded. Such raising of the bank rate,
it is contended, would be bad for
business and prove a setback to trade.
Opinions are by no nn-aiis unani-
mous in approval of iho government's
decision; somc experts argue that th$
government acted hastily.

a recent .speech in the house. He
sharply challenged Conservative

Grain Shipments From
Vancouver Decreased
Caused   By   Smaller   Crop   and   High
- Prices In 1924
Vancouver.-���Vaneom'i-r will ship
approximately 25,000,000 bushels oi
gnun-of the-1924 ffcrop, 'irccording-itJ -
estimates made at the grain exchange
division of the Vancouver .Merchants:
To date, shipments total 21,1 SS.^00
bushels. Commitments for almo.-4
1,000,000 additional bushels have- been
made.  .
The decline in shipments, as compared with last year's total, has its explanation iu ihe, .smaller crop and ihe
high prices. Oriental _ demand tor,
grain, ordinarily' a strong" factor iis

been curtailed by tho rise of prices ia

D. MacGlashen Dies in East
There was quite an interest taken
in the football game in Greenwood
on the 3rd inst when   Rock Creek-
Kettle Valley had a friendly game
with the local eleven.    The  game
was   played   on   fehe   old   athletic
grounds  which had   been  put in
shape daring the week. The visitors
won by a score df one- to nil,   the
goal being headed   in  by Hatton
from a well laid corner. The teams
are evenly matched, Kettle Valley
having   strengthened    their   team
since the last game on.Easter Monday.    It was a friendly game���no
rough stuff��� and yet it wan a hard
contested game.    Gane,   Wheeler,
Hemming, Hatton and Korris all
played in top notch form, Stilwell,
Dorman   and   Morrison were the
stars.    J. Muir as referee kept the
game well in hand and his decisions
were satisfactory feo all.
The next game will be played on
May 25ah. Both teams have one
game to.their credit though Greenwood leads by one goal, so the
game should be a good one as
both Bides think they can Vvin.
The visitors were treated to ��� tea
and bans before leaving town.
On Saturday the Greenwood Public Schoolboys journeyed to Grand
Forks and engaged the let clasB
boys of tbe High School there in a
friendly game of soccer. The
Grand Forks boys were at least a
Bize larger than the Greenwood
boyB, but Greenwood put up a
good defence and managed to preserve their goal intaot, the score at
the end being 0-0. Both' sides
played good clean football and the
form displayed by many of the
players, both in combination and
general tactics, was remarkable.
The Greenwood team follows:���

Donald   MacGlashen   a   former
resident of this district died recent--
lyin Nova Scotia.    In referring to
the deceased The Eastern Chronicle
of New Glasgow, says:
"M^. McGlashen was born at Big,
Island, the son of Mr. aud Mrs.
James MacGlashen, both of whom
have predeceased him. When quite
young he became apprenticed as a
blacksmith, aud lab^r went to British Columbia, where hespent many
years. Ou the outbreak of the war,
he enlisted and served with the
Canadian forces overseas. While
there he was gassed, aud his death
has probably resulted from some of
the lingering effects of'the service
he so splendidly rendered during
the years of the war.
On return from overseas he
settled on the old homestead at Big
Island. He was married to Miss
Grace Grant of Linacy, by whom
he is survived."

1���1 OUGHT to belong to the Church because I ought to be better
than I am. Henry Ward Beecher once saidT "The. Church is not a
gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for
the education of imperfect ones."
2���1 OUGHT to Belong to the Church because of what I cati give
to it and do through it as well as because of what I may get o.ut of it.'
The Church is not a dormitory for sleepeys, it is an institution of
���workers; it is not a rest camp, it is a front line tre'neh. V
3���I OUGHT to belong to the Church" because every man ought.to
pay his debts and do his-share toward discharging the obligations of
society. The Church not only has been the bearer of good hews of
���personal salvation; it has been and it is the supreme uplifting and
conserving, agency -without which "civilization would lapse into
barbarism.and press its way to perdition."
-.. 4���1 OUGHT, to belong to the'Church because of memories; memories of things I can never forget; memories of faces that will never
fade; memories of vows tjiat-are the glory of vouth.
���������������-.    . ��� ��� ���     / - ��� xyX _" ���" >���-   ���  ���'������,������
5���I OUGHT to belong to the Church because of hope; hope that.
liy.es when promises are dead; hope that paves the way for progress;*
hope that visions peace and social justice;  hope for time, and hope
for eternity���the great "hope .that casts its anchor behind Jesus
6���I OUGHT to belong to the Church because of the strong men
iri it who need reinforcing; the weak men in it wlio need encouraging; the rascals in it who heed rebuking. If I say that I am- not
good enough my humility recommends me. If I sit in the seat ofthe scornful my activity' condemns me.
