War Dog Died on Duty
A dispatch, received in November from Dunkirk, France, announced that "Marquis,'' the regimental dispatch dog of the Twenty-
third French Infantry, had been
mentioned in the orders of the day,
having fallen in daty at the battle
of Sarrebourg on the Belgian frontier.
At this action it became necessary for an officer to send a report
immediately to his superior, bnt at
thejjime the German fire was too
intense to allow a man to cross the
fire zonp, and "Marquis" was
charged with the mission.
Off he ran, across the fire-swept
zone, and arrived nearly at the
objective point, when a German
ball struck him in the right side
and brought him down. He straggled to his feet, though losing a
great deal of blood, and dragged
himself np to the position where
the officer was directing a section
of machine gans. He let fall the
order, reddened by his blood, and
breathed his last.

AYE WANT SQUARE MEN
The political life of Canada is
1 _rgely   rotten,   and  thickly  spat-
toted    with    ilesh-pot    grabbers.
Crazed  with  ambition,  and filled
wifeh the lust for easy money these
whitewashed   bandits,    posing   ae
j;..]itica_os,  are seeking to gain the
(.nth without  using a  gun on the
highway.    Canada needs in all its
governments square men, who are
too courageous to lie, and too hon
est to deal from tbe bottom.   J. G.
Holland voices  our sentiments in
tho following lines:
God give us men.   The time demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and
willing hands;
Men who the lust of office does not kill;
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
M.;i who have honor; men who will not
lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue;
And damn his treacherous flatteries with,
out winking;
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above
the fog
In public duty and in private thinking!
For while the rabble  with their thumb-
worn creeds,
Their  large  professions and their little
deeds
Mingle   in   selfish   strife;   lo!   Freedom
weeps!
Wrong  rules the  land, and waiting Justice sleeps!
TYPHOID FEVER
The season for typhoid is rapidly approaching, and it behooves
the people to be on their guard
against this dreaded disease. It
usually enters the Bystem through
infected milk or contaminated
water, or contaminated food.
Oysters, green vegetables, which
have been fertilized by sewage are
potent carriers of typhoid. Keep
your eye on vegetables sold by
Chinamen. We must eat or drink
the germs in order to get the disease It does not come in the air.
Cooking fruits, oysters and vegetables, and boiling water and milk
two effectual methode of preventing. Atways keep your hands
clean when in proximity of typhoid patients. The soldiers in
the slimy trenches of Europe are
freer from typhoid than the rich
people who live upon American
boulevards. This is due to the
practice of the typhoid vaccination.
It is not painful to be vaccinated
with the typhoid serum. It consists of three hypodermic injections given at certain intervals.
Several laboratories in the United
States prepare this vaccine, and
its use fairly guarantees against
typhoid for two or three years.
It is a short trench  that has no
dead rats.
Love can never lose its own, nor
can it sin.
Looks as though it will soon be a
close Season for Germans in Europe.

yesterday at the John Houston
Memorial. The first team of horses to approach it were hitched to
an ice wagon, and they refused to
drink. Perhaps the horses knew
.hat the monument was cut by
non-union labor from Austria.
Methinks if old John knew this,
that he would rise from his sarcophagus and rush along Vernon
street with a battering ram.
Yours truly,
INTER POCULA.

Measure Provides for Free and
Unrestricted Importation
of Liquor From Out/
side Points.
The B. C. Prohibition Acfe, on
which the electors of British Co
lumbia will be asked to register
tht-ir opinions at the polls, is not a
prohibition act in any sense of the
term. So contrary ia it to the
terms of prohibition that prohibitionists themselves are freely criticising the measure and the man
who is neither "wet" or ''dry" is
asked the pointed question as to
what will be secured by the bill
save the building up of industry
and trade at points outside the
province.
All of which goes to show that it
is advisable that the electors who
desire to vote intelligently on the
subject should carefully,, examine
the Act before election day.
The "wide open" clause of the
Act, Clause 57, reads in part as
follows:
"NOTHING IN THIS ACT SHALL
BE CONSTRUED TO INTERFERE
"(a) WITH THE RIGHT OF ANY
PERSON TO IMPORT FROM WITHOUT THE PROVINCE LIQUOR FOR
BONA FIDE USE IN HIS PRIVATE
DWELLING HOUSE "
This clause means that any resident of the province is allowed to
purchase all the liquor he desires,
just as often as he wishes, without,
control or regulation by tbe government, so long as he sends his
money outside the province-for his
supply.
This clause would, for instance,
allow any person to place a standing order with any liquor dealer
outside the province for a weekly
or monthly shipment of whiskey
to be delivered to his dwelling.
On such an order the supply of
liquor would reach him constantly
as long as he met the bills. In the
face of such conditions the question might well be asked "Is this
Prohibition?"
In the preliminary campaign in
connection with the bill and at the
present time prohibitionists have
made a grand stand play, both on
fehe platform and through their
propaganda literature, of the
drunkard and the frightful evils
which accompany drinking. Yet,
iu the bill for which they themselves are admittedly entirely responsible they have done absolutely nothing to lessen the consumption of liquor in British Columbia,
the sole effect of the legislation
being to send money spent for
liquor outside the province. Incidentally ife may be mentioned
thafe the drunkard who already has
the taste and habit, is the man
most likely to be the firsfc to take
advantage of the privilege to buy
outside and, shduld the Act pass,
would therefore have liquor in
quantity in his home whereas he
now takes his liquor by the glass.
As the small boy wonld say
"What's the use?"
THE GREAT QUESTION LYING
BEHIND THE REFERENDUM VOTE
ON THE PROHIBITION QUESTION
IS WHETHER THE REGULATED
SALE ��� OF LIQUOR UNDE R GO V-
ERNMENT LICENSE AND THE CONTROL IS NOT BETTER THAN THE
UNR EGULATED AND UNRESTRICTED IMPORTATION OF LIQUOR
FROM OUTSIDE POINTS.

Association, Room 24 Canada Life
