take advantage of this aad enjoy

Old-Timer Passes Away
The townspeople were shocked
>n Saturday evening, after the
uewe was spread around that Kenneth C. B. Frith, died very suddenly at the Greenwood Club,
while playing billiards with several
prominent citizens.
The late Mr.   Frith was born in
St. John, New  Brunswick,  about
49 years ago.    He spent some time
in   Flordia,   then  returned   home
for a  time,  after  which  he came
west with F. F. Ketchum, now of
Beaverdell.    Thev arrived in Cranbrook  in  1898, and  the following
year they moved to Greenwood,
when soon after Mr. Frifeh's arrival
he received   the   appointment of
postmaster,     succeeding    Robert
Wood, this position he held  until
his demise.
The deceased was one of Greenwood's mosfe highly esteemable
citizens. He has held many honorary positions in the past of which
some of them were: President of
the Greenwood Club; President of
the Curling Clubj Sec-Treas of fehe
Greenwood Rink, of which he was
one of tbe main movers in getting
the building built; a Past Chancellor of the Knights of Pythias;
and was an active member of the
Farmers Institute, being its secretary. He was as popular as he
was well known and his death will
be mourned by a large circle of
friends; also by those who came in
contact with him during his official
duties as our worthy postmaster,
'lihe synapathy b| the whole com?
munity is extended to relatives, but
more especially to his brother, W.
M. Frith, who is well-known here,
coming from Princeton where he
now lives, tc attend tbe funeral,
which took place on Tuesday, service was held in St. Jude's church
a large crowd attending. The remains were shipped feo Princeton
where interment took place.
The pall bearers were: George
Swayne, J.^L. Coles, G. A. Rendell, J. H. Goodeve, J. L. "White,

Best Color For Uniform
Onr khaki soils are good. Bufe
"horizon blue," the color which
the French use for feheir uniforms,
is said to be still better, says the
Popular Science Monthly.
_ Against certain backgrounds ife is
altogether invisible from a distance.
An artist painting a landscape puts
his objects back by washing them
over with a mixture of white and
bine, the horizon blue. This makes
it appear as if there were air between the objects and our eyes, so
fehat the objects themselves appear
The uniforms of horizon blue
make the wearers appear, if not
actually a part of the. landscape, at
least considerably farther away
than they are. And since a man
is recognized by his shape rather
than by his color, tQe blending of
his clothes with the color of the
horizon helps his camouflage considerably.
One can often dodge a coming
event by obperving its shadow. ^LJMtfffiL J&IEElOKXHSk

total   strength
Says the Kaiser Has   Still   3,130,000
Military experts, like doctors, fre-
cjuenlly disagree. The latest instances
come with the estimates of thc fighting strength of the German ancl
Austrian armies on the various
Thc  military  expert
Pans   figures   that  the
of  tlie  German   forces  today  is
3.130,000, divided as  follows:
On the western front, 2 million; on lb<:en
the  eastern   front  1   million;     on  the
Italian   front   100,000;  on the   Balkan
front   30,000.
The French army headquarter* estimate of the Austro-Hungarian army
���lone is 1,200,000, however, while
Italian army authorities figure Aus-
tro-Gcnnan forces in Italy at 840,000
men instead of thc one hundred thousand the l.'Echo de Paris writer
The latter justifies hi? estimates by
saying that on the Anglo-French
front where thc British and French
forces exceed 2 mi'lion considerably,
there arc now 15-t German division,
each of three regiments of infantry
and eacli regiment made up of only-
two or three battalions. Each battalion, lie says, counts on a maximum
of only 650 rifles, making a maximum
of 5.850 rifles to a division. Tn thc
same way, on the eastern front,
while there are still 113 divisions in
service, each has been greatly weakened by withdrawing individual units.
His theory is that only a skeleton
of Germany's great army really remains, and that counting; noncombat-
nnt units, thc total strength of the
kaiser's forces now is only Sj'a million men.

Keeping It Up
The Airplane in War
Sj American Red Cross   Will   Retrieve

11 Them
Si '-I'be war has made terrible inroads
���5 on thc next generation in France. A
birth rate already alarmingly lowhas
fallen to a point where France in a
single year���the second of the war���
suitered a net loss of almost 2 per^
cent of her population. Thc_ Red'
Cross has sent three groups of specialists and nurses to France to_ engage in educational and hygienic
work throughout the country to help
check the increase in infant mortality.
The children who were born just
before thc war in the devastatecl_ districts have lived through such frightful experiences as to rob them of
anything approaching normal growth
and development. It is marvelous
that they survive at all. To take
these children from the peril of
bombs and gas' and unnumbered horrors, to keep them in bodily safety
under devoted and intelligent care
until they can be sent back to their
homes or relatives, is the purpose of
the Red Cross children's work. For
this purpose several centres have
been established behind the lines. At
one such centre six hundred children were gathered together from villages which had been bombarded.
They arc now housed in a comfortable Red Cross barracks, provided by
lhe French government, under the
care of au American specialist and
American  Red Cross nurses.
From another centre of children's
work a travelling dispensary mounted on a small motor truck is making
[the circuit of thc surrounding villages. Thc shower bath which this
motor truck carries gives many of
these youngsters the first bath tbey
havc had for many months. Thc Red
Cross is caring too, for children who
havc been exposed to tuberculosis
and for thc children, often sick and
miserable, who come back to France

among thc pioneers in air    warfare,
and they gave their lives freely    m
learning how it should bc done.
Our flying men bad, at thc beginning, to conform to rules and
regulations. Army discipline handicapped them, right and left, % consequently they worked at a disadvantage all the time.    Thc military man
course of this war? Hc is only the
more fixed in his conviction that
"frightfulness" pays. Witness his hideous brutality to thc unfortunate
peasantry in Italy who have fallen
into his hands. Nor arc the Atts-
trians or Hungarians far behind
their leader in devilry. The veneer
worn by the Austrians and Magyars
in times of peace, and their less
gross personal habits, caused them
to bc judged less strictly on their
deeds. In all thc crimson records of
fiendish oppression and savage blood-
thirstiness of this war neither Belgium nor Armenia has worse to show
than Bosnia, Slavonia and Serbia. In
a speech rclivcr.ed on October 17 last,
in the Austrian parliament, fey Di-.
Tresic-Pavicic, a Dalmatian politician
lie there publicly charged thc government with atrocities to its own subjects, as'well as to'Serbs, and Montenegrins, as horrible as the worst infamies perpetrated by thc German
soldiery. Oh the outbreak of war
the. Hungarians (Magyars) let loose
a .tempest of destruction on: their
Slav fellow citizens. All the nationally, enlightened, responsible and honest elements of thc male population,
said Dr. Tresic-Pavicic, were arrest-,
ed, interned, imprisoned, ruined, condemned to death* executed; the very
young and the aged were fated to die
of hunger, the remainder were terrorized, demoralized and dishonored.
Some of the details hc gave are almost too horrible for publication. The
following passages in his speech are
quoted from "The Ncw Europe":
"The autocrat of Bosnia, General
Potiorek, ordered all Serbs to be removed from the frontiers of Bosnia,
and his orders were carried out. The
inhabitants of tbe village of Sircc,
when they reached Mount Rudo,
were forced by their guards to . dig
their graves and to lie down quietly
each in his: own.. .'��� Many . women, lay
down with tlicr children at their
breasts. The soldiers did not shoot
them all at once, but one by one.
The living had to heap earth upon
thc dead until their own turn came
to be covered by the soldiers.
"At the village of Golubinci the
6oldiers with their bayonets drove
tlie people into the court yard of thc
school, and there shot them down
like hares at a shooting^ match.
Human imagination cannot picture all
the methods employed to kill these
people, They were shot down by machine guns, drowned in the Save, tied
to' hayricks, which were then set on
fire. Outside Zubac 28 people were
Changed without trial, at Trcbinje 102
In all, and of these 39 for the excellent reason that they were notable; at
Foca 71 for the same reason. Ai
single Magyar battalion had 1,000 i
yards of rope with it when it was
Rcntfrom Sarajevo to the frontier. At
'Tuzia oyer 300 Serbs were seen hanging on the trees. .;The whole Scrbo-
Montenegrin frontier lias been almost
cleared of its population and transformed into a desert."
While such things arc done,
while autocratic governments can
make such a hell of this fair earth,
there can bc no . pcac*. 'The free
countries of'thc world, iiow happily
banded together to extirpate this
evil, cannot relax their efforts for

aud it requires imagination  to
flying machines  at the front.
Early in the war it was said:
"Listen to the flying men and let
them tell us what we need. And as
soon as wc listened to the flying men
we progressed in the air by leaps and
bounds. ,
It was the flying men themselves
who discovered that the   monoplane
was of no value for observation purposes. No monoplanes are used in
warfare today. It was thc flying men
who learned how to dodge shrapnel
fire. Thc obvious thing seemed to bc
to climb out of range. Bnt more often
than not thc obvious thing in flying
is.the wrong thing/Pilots today drop
like a plummet to avoid shrapnel. It
is possible to drop, st a much greater
speed than it is to climb���and the
greater the speed of a machine the
more difficult it is to hit.
It is not very long ago���four
years to . be exact���that everyone
gasped at thc daring of Pegoud, the
French aviator, who was thc first
man to loop the loop,  .
And yet today every lad���and the
majority arc lads���who- holds a pilot's-certificate in the flying corps,
loops the loop without turning a
hair.- In fact, looping is one of the
favorite dodges in air fighting. To
be behind an enemy plane is the
most favorable position, and if, when
chased by a hostile machine, a pilot
can loop the loop and come up behind the enemy, bc immedi- lcly becomes the chaser, and has his opponent at a disadvantage.
But it. used to be thought that to
get above "and in front of an enemy
flier was the most advantageous position in air fighting. Now, through
actual experience,, our men realize
that.it is easier to. turn a machine
gun on to an enemy machine when
he is above or iii front.
Kitchener once said, that one airplane was worth a thousand men,
and it is certain; that a thousand men
have the value of ten thousand now

This is thc most momentous hour
that civilization has known. There is

I On Air Reprisals
A  Complete and Satisfying Retaliation for Wrongs Committed
Thc adoption of a more    vigorous
war policy in thc air than bas hitherto obtained seems to be thc occasion
rather than thc result of a change oi
personnel in the headship of the British air department.    The ncw minis-
I ter,  Baron  Rothermere,  spoke   after
j Mr. Lloyd George at the recent meet-
I ing  of  the  Benchers  of  Grey's  Inn,
land therefore, presumably, after hav-
\ ing come to a perfect understanding
with  the prime minister on thc   war
policy of thc government.    He    announced  thus  publicly  that  his  "ad-
ivisers" had asked him  to    make    a
(���'precise statement" of    that    policy,
and this he prefaced with the intimation   that  the  department    is  unanimous in favor of "reprisals" for German    air    raids    on    non-combatant
communities.    "It is our duty,"     he
said, "to avenge the murder of innocent women and their children," and,
ii" thc enemy choose to havc it so, it
will bc hereafter "an eye for an eye
and a tooth for a tooth: a complete
and satiM'ying retaliation."
Citing General von LudcudorfT's
opinion that this is a war of nations,
and not merely of lighting men, Lord
Kothermerc expressed British detestation of war on non-combatants,
but he pointed out that if Ludcn-
dorfl's policy were to be continued
Great Britain could no longer "con-
one-sided application,"
and that Germany has to learn that
"outrages on the civilian population
of Britain do not pay."
In considering what thc ncw policy of "reprisals" may signify for the
German non-combatant population
one has to take into account only
what has been actually achieved by
one of the new British airships,
which recently crossed Europe to
Constantinople by stages and dropped bombs on the warships in the
harbor and on the Turkish war office, and came back without serious
injury to itself. An air trip to Berlin would bc as practicable as this
exploit. It is possible that bombs
will be dropped on the Prussian and
Austrian capitals as the most effective way of arousing public opinion
in the central empires against further
air raids on unprotected cities.���Toronto Globe.

Information has been received that
fishermen on a western lake have
300,000 pounds of white fish on ice
and that they refuse to market it at
thc price named by the food controller. A telegram was sent to them
stating that unless thc fish were marketed, the food controller, in order
to prevent waste, would take possession of the entire catch and dispose
of it in thc public interest. In case
this action became necessary, thc
price paid for thc fish would not exceed the maximum price, fixed by
the  food, controller.
Steps havc also been taken, to prevent itinerant dealers from thc U. S.
diverting the fish supply across the
international boundary by offering
prices in excess of the maximum j
prices. Ah official has been appointed by thc food controller to investigate such complaints and the commissioner of customs has instructed
the local collector of customs . to
withhold permission for the- exportation of .fish to the United States firms
concerned until it has; been proved
that the food controller's regulations
are being strictly observed.
Following thc receipt of requests
that the price of winter-caught fish
from the southern Saskatchewan
lakes bc fixed, the food controller has
ordered that thc prices for such fish
must not.exceed by more than one-
half cent pcr pound the maximum
prices which he fixed recently for
fish from thc Big River district of
Saskatchewan. The food controller
has also fixed ia maximum price of
two cents per pound, f.o.bi, primary
railway shipping point, for mullets
from any waters in Manitoba, . Saskatchewan or Alberta.
On and after Jan. 1, it will- be illegal for any person, other .than a
fisherman or retailer, to deal in Canadian. fish to an amount exceeding
l.OOO pounds in any one month without first obtaining a license from thc
food controller. A regulation to this
effect, which has been signed by Mr.
Hanna, brings under the license system ail persons conducting a.wholesale fish business.

Binder Twine at

Ensure Ample Supply Binder Twine
in Canada
An ample supply of binder twine
for Canadian requirements next year
at reasonable prices has been cnsui>
cd as the result of an agreement
reached between the United States
food administration and the Mexican
sisal growers of Yucatan. Information to this effect was received at the
office of the food controller. The
growers were holding out for a high
price, but under the< arrangement just
cohsumated the entire crop has been
secured at a slight advance over last
3rear's price. Co-operation of Canada
and thc United States in controlling
food exports from this continent was
one of the factors which made it
possible to secure the sisal supply on
reasonable terms.
An Anglo-American Alliance
George   Louis Beer in the   January
Yale Review
_ Thc  necessity  for  close   co-operation   between  all   thc   English-speaking peoples and also  the moral and
rational justification  of such  a combination, are recognized    by all who'
have devoted serious thought to  the
problems of the future and'arc willing to face the world as it really is.
In Germany, and also in Japan, such
an association is widely considered to
bc inevitable. But thc question    still
remains  uhat, if any,  outward form
shall this essential co-operation take.
As thc Germans deny thc reality of
thc world community and base their
policy upon    thc    assumption of an
inherent antagonism between    juxtaposed states, they cannot conceive of
this future relation as other than an
offensive and    defensive    alliance of
thc older type with its aggressive and
selfish purposes.    To them thc project is merely thc expression of self-
regarding,    but    entirely    justifiable,
nationalism    of   a world-wide group
of closely related states. But an association of this character,    an alliance of governments, would mark no
real advance to a better international
future.   Unless it were an alliance of
peoples based upon    their    common
ideals as well as upon the    common
needs, it would bc an ephemeral   arrangement.   Fortunately thc spiritual
foundations exist.   As Viscount Grey
has expressed it: i"Thc more   closely
the    two peoples come into contact,
the belter they get to know each other, thc more I believe it" will be apparent to   each not only that    they
speak the    same language, but    that
they usc it to mean the same things,
that they bothhavc the same idea of
freedom and liberty,   and desire the
same sort of world in which to live."
A popular democratic alliance based
upon such likc-mindedncss points the
road to ncw types of political association    which      will      permanently
unite under a common law different
nations and stales.    Such an organization based upon the will to co-operate would'give some assurance of
-the possibility of an ultimate   world
state.   Otherwise the outlook   would
indeed be black.    If mankind is    to
be forever split up into thc    watertight political compartments of    the
modern state system, if each stateis
to cling forever to it's sovereign independence, there will be no ultimate
prospect of an  effectively  organized
world community and war will continue to. demand its human holocaust.
Distribution of Wealth
More   Big   Millionaires   in    Britain
Than in United States
Millionaires arc more numerous in
America than they arc in Great Britain, but the multi-millionaires of
Great Britain are more numerous
than the multi-millionaires of America. In other words, the millions of
America arc more evenly distributed
amongst lhe very wealthy as a class,
than the British millions amongst the
wealthy of Great Britain.
Only ten people in thc United
States havc as much as $125,000,000
each. In Britain 79 people have each
as much money. Nine citizens of thc
United States havc $100,000,000 each.
Great Britain has 68. Only 14 people in thc United States own amounts
from $75,000,000 to $100,000,000, but
Great Britain has 45 of these. There
are 73 who own from $50,000,000 to
$75,000,000 in Britain while in the
United States there are only 34, and
Great Britain has 61 people with
from $37,500,000 to $50,000,000 while
America has of this class only 42.
But America has 97 citizens owning from $25,000,000 to $37,500,000, as
compared with Britain's 83 and of
millionaires in general America has
22,696 while Great Britain has only
5,154. There are also in the United
States a great many people with incomes of from $30,000 to $40,000 a
year who may be in the millionaire
class as regards capital owned if it
is invested at only 3 per cent., or
whose fortunes may be subject to
fluctuations reducing their average
income, and placing them on the income basis, at least, out of the mil-
lionairc class.
It has been discovered that in the
United States less than 1 pcr cent, of
thc total revenues derived from taxing individual-incomes comes from
thc millionaire class.���Financial Post.

Ihe heating of the world���and
with it our houses���depends largely

the blanket, thc warmer the sleeper.
A summer temperature of 85 degrees will cause more discomfort on

It is not the actual amount of
water present, but the relative
amount, that counts. Since the capacity of the air for holding water
increases as the air becomes warmer, it is necessary to add more water
to air aswe heat it, in order to keep
the relative humidity constant.
In nature we find an average degree of relative humidity; and this
average is essential to health as well
as for warmth. But in building our

is that what has been done in Russia, what was partially done in Italy,
shall be done in France, England and
America; that those who would fight
and could fight shall be turned from
their duty and their loyalty by vain
and empty words, by voices full of
madness. We shall conquer thc Germans if we have only the Germans
to fight. We shall be conquered by
the Germans ourselves if our own
Bolshcviki succeed as the Russians
have succeeded, and if they succeed
wc shall find the German terms of'
peace not less onerous than those
made to the affrighted dreamers of
Russia, who now stand aghast and
helpless in the face of an armed enemy demanding millions of their citizens, thousands of square miles of
their territory and the future economic independence of their nation.

Production Exceeds $400,000,000 According to Government Statistics
Statistics presented by the provincial treasurer of Saskatchewan before the Saskatchewan legislature
show that the financial position ol
the province is exceedingly bright
This year's crop was very satisfactory, and the wealth in' respect to live
stock has materially increased during
the year.
The total value of the wheat crop
is estimated at $225,536,315; the oat
crop is worth $77,487,141; barley,
$15,825,987 and flax $14,405,241. Thi>
represents a total grain crop prochic-
tion of- the value of $323,254,675.
The value of farm products othei
than grain is as follows: Potatoes
$6,932,000; hay, etc. $9,045,000; roota
$1,732,000; Butter, milk, etc. $8,600-
000; wool clip $334,000; game $1,150-
000; garden produce $1,250,000; poultry $4,465,000.
The aggregate value of all farm
products in Saskatchewan during the
year 1917, therefore, amounts to
$361,364,518. The increase in the value of live stock in thc province in
1917 over last year is $47,683,071,
which brings the total value of farm
products up to $409,047,589. This
production is not surpassed by any
agricultural country of the same
(population in the world.
The live stock statistics show that
Saskatchewan is advancing rapidly
in thc adoption of mixed farming.
The number of live stock is increasing every year. Compared "with last
year there arc 46,766 more, horses,
32,218 more cows, 107,469 more other
cattle and 3,655 more sheep. As a
result of thc greater production campaign for hogs there arc 43,211 more
hogs in the province this year than
in 1916. It is estimated that the total value of live stock on Saskatchewan farms this year is $243,426,340 as
against $195,743,340 in 1916.

Professionals Hockey
(by the inflated)
On "Wednesday evening last two
of the^fastest hockey teams in existence exhibited a close and dazzling exhibition of [hockey, the
C.P.R. whitewashing the Cigar
Store 2 0.
The C. P, R. team were the
agressora all through the game.
There combination and accurate
shooting put them in the lead.
The Cigar team put up a splendid
fight but were unable to stop their
opponents. R. Muir was strong for
Ms Cigars he shorted all attempts
in his direction and was ably assisted by Knight who caehed everything in reach. Bob Halcrow was
very effective allowing the puck to
Blip between Lis pedal extremities.
Bill Fleming a new player on the
Cigars was always in the fry and
waa heard feo : express himself,
! 'Sure I'll slag them if they kick
the puck.r' Spooner let in two
shots of a great delivery of tries
and MeG-Ulivray barred all lushes
in his direction and with the aid
of Cropley this team was welded
into fine Bhape.
Bab they had nothing on the
C. P. R. who were very characteristic) of the famous company. Bill
Harritt with open throttle engineer
cd the ptick up the ice while Hank
Leonard and Jack Ryan put tha
brakes on all opponents. Nelson
conducted'the pack into the Cigars
net foi* their first counter. He also
received a brownie in the penalty
box for working boo hard, Carlson
was always able to keep his section clear and McPherson was very
free with his passes to both friend
and foe alike. Poud froze np the
C. P. R. goal and thus all count*
era were blocked. The last and
second goal was made on a single
pass from Harritt to Leonard who
beat the Cigars net guardian. J.

The kid has gone to the Colors
And we don't know what to say;
The kid we have loved and cuddled
Stepped out for the Flag today.
We thought him a child, a baby,
With never a care at all;
But his country called him man-size���
And the Kid has heard the call.
He paused to watch the recruiting,
Where, fired by the fife and drum,
He bowed his head to Old Glory
And thought that it whispered: "coine!"
The Kid, not being a slacker,
Stood forth with with patriot-joy
To add his name to the rooster���
And, God! we're proud of the boy!
The Kid has gone to the Colors:
It seems but a little while
Since he drilled a schoolboy army
In a truly martial style.
But now he's a man, a soldier,
And we lend him a listening ear;
For his heart is a heart all loyal,
Unscourged by the curse of fear.
His dad, when hc  told  him, shuddered,
His mother���God bless her!���cried;
Yet, bleast with a inollier-nature,
She wept with a uiolher pride.
But he whose old shoulder straightened

"Over The Top"
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful* The waters that run through and
surround it, are teeming with edible fish, include
ing clams, Its lofty sky ^scraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral, while
the yellow power of earth'gold, it hides amid the
sands of many a creek, Its fertile valleys and
hillsides contain millions of acres that are doing
nothing to go "OVER THE TOP/' for lack of
cultivation, Its forests of gigantic trees are the
envy of the world The scenery is grandly
magnificient, while the climate contains the ozone
that puts pep into the human frame, filling it with
life, health and energy*
With all these advantages this Province
should have millions of happy people within its
confines, and j>et it has a scant 400,000, Then
sings the little bird in the tree, "What's The
Matter With B, G"
Nothing, except that it is like many a
business man. It does not advertise, or does
not know how. Turn on the bright light of
effective and suggestive advertising, until all
the world thinks and talks about this glorious
B.C, the brightest gem in the cluster of
Canada's provincial diamonds. Get a move
on, go over the top, waving your flag and
blowing your cornet in front of the millions
that have not yet been "swiped" by the red
hand of Mars.
In the meantime do not fall to boost your
own business by dropping a soul-touching,
money getting ad into Greenwood's Leading
Excitement. Come across with enthusiasm
and plenty of printer's ink, and the public
will shell you with dollars, until you grow
tired picking them up. If you are wise, you
will always advertise, in
$nd get your job printing at the same office.
