Letters of Thanks
The following letters of acknowledgement have been received by the Red
Cross Society:
Seaford, Sussex, Dec. 9.
President Red Cross Society,
Dear Madam:   Will you kindly   convey to the members of the Greenwood
Red Cross Society my hearty thanks for
their generosity and thoughtfuluess  by
sending me a box containing cake, candy,
smokes, etc.; which was received intact
by me yesterday.   I can assure you that
parcels received from friends by the men
overseas are a source of. great joy.   On
such occasions pals are invited to share
the good things���for luxuries are almost
impossible to get over here.   We will sit
round in little groups sharing the cake
with one another, then have a smoke in
silence���letting   our   thoughts   wander
back to the days that were and wondering when it will all end.   Then we will
talk of home and friends or perhaps of
some  comrade  in France  who is now
"pushing up the daisies" or it may be we
will tell of our experiences in France.
Men after all are only overgrown children for when they receive a .parcel some
actually jump with glee, others will in
feverish excitement open   their  parcel,
while others will cooly and deliberately
examine every corner of the box, and all
the while his thoughts are of'home. And
there is, too, a great deal of pathos in the
faces of those who do not get a parcel or
letter.   He  feels tor the  time that   he
hasn't  a   friend   in   tne   whole  world.
Especially  is   this  true  in France.    I
would like to describe fully  these state
occasions, but I am afraid I would bore
Please accept my since thanks and
gratitude and with every good wish to
you and all the people of Greenwood I
am, Yours sincerely,
France, December 3rd, 1917
To the Red Cross of Greenwood:
Many thanks for the parcel which
was very acceptable. There was three of
us in this dug out when the parcel arrived and the way the eats disappeared
was a fright. Suds is in England with a
broken toe. I suppose you know his address. There was a parcel arrived here
from his people in Grand Forks for him.
The same trio got that parcel too. A
parcel never gets out of France whsn it
once gets here. Sounds greedy doesn't
it. I'll have to write to Mr. Smith and
tell him what became of that parcel.
Will close now with best wishes for a
prosperous new year for the Greenwood
Red Cross. Yours respectfully,
France, Dece_uber'8th, 1917
Greenwood Red Cross Society
Dear Members: .
Just a short note in reply to your
Christmas parcel which I received yesterday and I wish to convey to ail its members my deepest thanks.
It is a great change to one after eating
army'rations or have a square meal in one
of.those up-to-date French restaurants
where one does. well to get eggs and
often wonders if they haven't dropped
them in the range. .
With best wishes,
Pre. W. H....C. BRYANT
France, Nov. 29, 1917
To Working Party, Red Cross Society,
Dear Indies:
. Many tliahke for the parcel which I
received yesterday, which is a dandy and
contained nothing but what is always
appreciated by anyone away from home
comforts. If only the men of Canada
would throw themselves into the conflict
half. as serious as the - women are doing
there would be no need of us voting on
Again thanking you for your kindness
and wishing the Red Cross Society pf
Greenwood ever success in the grand
work tbey are doing.   J close.
From j'Ottrs gratefully,
England, Dec. 9, 191?
Sec. R. C. W. Party. Greenwood.
Dear Madam; I am just in receipt, of
a fine large parcel from your society and
for which kindly accept my thanks.
Pte. A. A. White, of Phoenix, helped
me to eat the cake and pronounced it the
very best. My health is the very best.
Again thanking you for your kindness
and with all good wishes, I am,
Gratefully yours,

Dear Friends of the .
Greenwood Red Cross Society.
Many thanks for   the   useful  parcel
which I received from you a few days ago.
The wounded aad sick men are inbebt-
ed to the Red Cross for many comforts,
but the convalescent and staff are supposed to get along ���without such   help.
Nevertheless, believe me it was good to
receive it and again I. thank you.   Kind
regards to yon all. . :_.-:V'..-.iv.';.':'Y.-���.

Hovr time does fly!���Missouri Exchange,
It has only rained three times in
San Diego, altogether less than an
inch Bince last June. The dirtiest
period in 50 years, Since 1867 fehe
temperature ha? dropped only four
times to 32 degrees. In January
1913 there were seven degrees of
frost one night. In 50 years the
temperature has only beeu above
90 degrees nineteen times. Still,
probably owing largely to the
den bo humidity, and the foggy
chills of the ocean many people
suffer from colds, grippe and pneumonia. The coast of California,
especially at 'Frisco is no.ted for
San Diego means St. James. It
ia a busy town this winter, owing
to the large number of army and
navy men in and around it. There
are 1300 hundred soldiers in the
hospitals at Camp Kearney. The
measles bothers hundreds of them.
The city hes 48 churches, and 52
saloons. The beer sold here, is a
brother to that propinquity beverage in B. C.
Christmas is celebrated in the
South iu juet as enthusiastic a
manner as in the north. Just the
ice, enow and sleigh bells are missing. Christmas Eve on the little
Plaza, (public square) opposite fehe
Grand hotel there was a Christmas
tree, 65 feet high. The tree waa
brought 42 miles from the Cuya-
maca mountains. It was filled
with colored electric lights and
decorated with tinsel, pop corn and
colored flags. The 21st Infantry
band, aided by Madame Schumann-
Heink, the world's greatest contralto and other singers, gave an
open air contest that was attended
by 20,000 people.
San Diego is full of movies and
vaudeville   shows.     The   movies
charge  from 5 cents upwards.    I
have heard many jokes in  some of
the theatres that were too old to be
drafted  into the army.    Hearing
them almost makes one believe in
reincarnation.    The movies open
in fehe morning,  and run  without
stopping until  11   p.   m.   I saw
Civilization  this   morning for 10
ceuts.    This  town   would   be  a
paradise for the kids of Greenwood.
They get in for a nickle,   with the

The Army a Big Community
Described as a Big City Dumped ia
the Open
Sir Auckland C. Geddcj. minister
of ir.r_.io_._d service, _i_ldre_i.sii.__,' depu-
U.t: i'.is irom Glasgow the other day,
-said: "Thev must remember in connection with any theory of recruiting
th.nt at: army was not only ;i ii.urhi.iiiK
machine. It vas very largely a community, such as the city of Glasgow,
only it was a temporary community.
It roc| ni roil an elaborate transport
service, w"ucr delivery, food supplies, sanitary services, and many
other things; the whole organization
was Jha. of a big community, and
the lighting work -was or. the average, not more than one twenty-fifth
of the more or less civii work going
on at any given time. It was only
whelTYiiey began to think of an army
in that way, as a vast community, a
big city dumped in the open, with
nil the needs of a big community to
bc satisfied nnder most exceptional
and strenuous conditions, that they
gained a right conception, and realized that tlie army needed older men
to maintain cohesion anil to steady
the young men. All the qualities
that go to make good citizens in this
country were needed in their citizen
armies, nnd the older men must bc
there. It was a big community with
a public opinion of its own, and it
wanted the different age elements
which had their lot aud part in public opinion.

Ovcrstudy and lack of CMcreisc
make thin bloodless children. Study-
docs not usualy hurt a child tit school
unless the studies encroach on time
that should bc spent in out-of-doors
exercise. But lack of exercise and
over-study is a combination that
brings on St. Vitus dance. It your
boy or girl tit school is thin and
pale, listless and inattentive, has a
fickle appetite, is unable to stand .
still or sit still, you must remember '
that health is much more important
than education, and more time should
be given  to  exercise and recreation.
See to it at once that the child
does not ovcrslutly, gets plenty of
out-oT-door exercise, sleeps ten out
of every twenty-four hours, and
takes a safe, reliable tonic like Dr.
Williams' I'ink Pills until the color
returns to the cheeks and lips and
the appetite becomes normal. For
growing children who become, pale
and thin Dr. Williams* Tink Pills arc
not only safe but in most eases are
llic very best tonic that can bc taken.

"Exhibit a Degree of Heroism Which
Has Never  Been  Seen Before
What of our merchant sailors?
They ccmrtcd the sea as capricious,
hut glorious mistress, whose changing moods and uncertain temper constituted her attraction; unprotected
with armor or gun, after the manner
of the times, ' these brave men have
opposed their frail ships, not built
f-or a contagion of violence, to the
altack of an enemy who dares to
move only iu darkness of the submarine world, creeping along like
some inhuman monster of a past age
equipped and defended with tlie hard-
won triumphs of modern physieial
science. Let us, who live ashore, bc
under no misconception. These sea-
mien of our time are exhibiting a de-
gree_ of staunch courage, open-eyed
heroism, and masterly seamanship
which have ncAer been seen before
in any century. We owe them our
respect for the tribute which their
actions pay to the qualities of the
nice. Wc may turn the pages of bister)- In future, years wilh the consciousness that this sea-keeping nation hasn't fallen from its high estate.
No epic of the sea is worthy to be
mentioned beside that which these
men havc written, and are still writ-
nig, with their blood. "Greater love
bnth no man than this, that a man lav

Science Will Eliminate War
Development    of    the    Airplans
Bring Many Chntirrcs i:t
r.xpcrts  agree   that     the     development of the airplane as a war weapon
is only in its first stages.    It is interesting to reflect upon its further development.    It will probably play the
leading part in future  wars., if there
ar-e any.    One of the most important
preparations  for  future  wars  will  be
to provide  under-ground shelters for
the  civilian   population.     It may    be
necessary to do this before the present war is ended.    In London, when
warning is  given of the approach of
air  raiders, as many people  as    possible take  refuge in the underground
railway  tubes.    The  aircraft  of    the
future may be able to  destroy   anything on ihe earth's  surface.   If wars
continue, the improvement of the airplane   and' the  high   explosive     may
make   underground   cities    necessary. .
Mechanical   developments    have    al-
ready   changed the   natural   order  of i
things iu war.      Surface    navies    no i
longer   rule  the   seas.     Fortifications !
do not protect.    Cavalry    is    almost I-
useless.      Non-combatants    arc     no '
longer under the protection of inter
national law.   Mechanical arts will do
more to make war impossible in the :
future than arbitration or a- league of I
nations.���Vancouver Sun.

Scott & Bownc. manufacturing
chemists, of Bloomfield, N.J.. proprietors of the world famous medicine, Scoot's Emulsion, is one of the
largest advertisers and one of the
most successful firms in America, so
their opinion of the value of newspaper advertising is worthy of attention. In a letter of instructions relative to their advertising in The Observer, they say:
"The steadily increasing popularity
of Scott's Emulsion is due in part to
our persistent adherence to newspap-

this method of publicity for nearly
fifty years, and we arc takine this
opportunity to thank the publishers
of the 2.000 weeklies in which we advertise for their demonstrated appreciation of clean, truthful advertising,
such  as that of Scott's  Emulsion."

Keeeping Choice Apples
To keep choice apples in good condition all winter pack them in sawdust. Take fine dry sawdust, preferably that made by a circular saw
from well-seasoned hard wood, and
place a thick layer on bottom of a
barrel. Then place a layer of apples, not close together, and not
close to slaves of the barrel. Put
sawdust liberally over and around
and proceed until a bushel and a half
(or less) are so packed in each barrel. They arc to be kept in a cool
place. No bruised or mellow apples must be used.

Pacifists as Tools
The Women in the Case
How German Propaganda   on   This
Continent Was Worked
It is an axiom Hint a pacifist in
an enemy country is as useful to
tcrliu as a pro-German. Often more
useful because, while performing
precisely the same service of thwarting preparedness aud nullifying opposition to Germany, they arc not
��� so easily tagged. And in this connection, it is essential to examine
Berlin's cil'orts to- dominate and preempt the minds of public men at
strategic points in foreign government.
It is not asserted that these men
���particularly in this country���have
been conscious of the manner in
which their opinions upon foreign
policies are formed. But, in the
words of a citizen of Indianapolis,
addressing a patriotic mass meeting
in New York some weeks before
this government declared ' war, the
plan followed most assiduously and
effectively by pro-Germans and propaganda agents in the middle west is
undoubtedly that which has been
employed throughout the nation.
Said tbis speaker.
"They have singled out every important man in our communities and
tbey have studied him for his vulnerable points. If hc had a weak
spot financially they brought pressure to play upon thai; if hc had
pacifist leanings ��� they played upon
that; if he were prejudiced against
England, they worked upon thai; if
he admired German efficiency, they
cxtolcd that; if he were constitutionally opposed to American" participation in foreign wars, they
Isarped upon that; if his business
could be shown in any sense to have
been impaired by the allied blockade, they excoriated that." Each
man was searched-for his "Achilles
heel," so to speak, and this was
sprayed with a specific German solution. Small wonder, then, that the
German influence���however unsuspected by the subjects themselves���
reached many of the men in public
life whom il went after. Even if it
��fid not directly sway the office
I'.olders themselves, it was able to
t>ring pressure upon other men who
fiad influence with these officials.���
Washington Correspondence, Minneapolis Tribune.
Women Accused of Playing an Important Role in Russian
Wives seem to have played an important role in Russian intrigue. The
c.x-czar's plight is generally believed
to have been brought abput largely
through the influence and plotting of
the czarina, abetted by certain of her
court ladies, and now we havc the
sad talc of SoukhoinlinofT's henpecked career, that led to his undoing as a betrayer of his country.
Wc have no doubt that others of
the traitorous cli<|tte who served the
cause of Germany were tools of
wives or of women who, without
matrimonial sanctions, held their
confidence and devotion. These puppet husbands and lovers arc a sorrv
spectacle; they strutted in the fancied superiority of their sex, while
iu reality they were the playthings
of pretty faces :uid soft hands. But
the story in which they figure is
merely rcpresenta.la.tion of a story as
old as woman's so-called servitude.
Always where women have been denied the political and economic, rights
enjoyed by men they have found less
legitimate waj-s of getting even with
llieir lords and masters. And usually
they became the intriguing shapers
of male-destiny, The way of safety
for man, who. has fancied himself the
maker of his own world is to give
woman an open field in which to
fight her battles. Social, economic
and political freedom will destroy
the feminine texciise for ruling by indirection and plot.���From the Chicago Evening Post.
White and Brown Bread
Wholo Wheat Bread Supplies Every
Need of the Human Body
There is still    much difference of
opinion over white bread, and brown
bread, and nothing but a few weeks'
experience can settle the matter for
anyone. A sudden change from white
bread to coarse brown   bread   may
bring about irregularities of tbe digestive and alimentary tracts for   a
short  time,  for  the effect  of  white
bread is constipating, -while brown oi
coarser bread has a contrary result,
lite experience of many people    :s
entirely  against  brown  bread which
is merely white    flour    mixed    with
bran.    Proper brown bread  is  made
of whole wheat, and    this may    be
ground to a finer or coarser consistency, according to    preference.      A
good plan has been suggested by Lillian  Dynevor,    Rice,    who.    without
condemning   white    bread,      recommends a  freer usc of coarse breads
made from wheat, rye, maize, barley
or oats. These arc all rich in mineral
matter, protein,    starch    and    sugar,
and arc especially good for childreh
whose yotmg bones require  just  the
materials these cereals supply.    It is
suggested    that    housekeepers    keep-
half a dozen canisters full of    these
coarser bread stuffs, and that    they
be baked alternately with white bread
and  the tastes  for these grains cultivated.    "Modern whole wheat flour
with the bran    eliminated,    c
all the albuminoids and the nutritive
mineral   matter   of  the   wheat,    supplies  the alkaline  phosphates   which
contribute lo the formation of the required salts    for    the body, nnd also
holds  the    elements    necessary    for
bone and toolh-building."   This is the
best testimonial that can be    given,
and very few of those who get    accustomed to    whole    wheal:      bread
would  willingly abandon it.

The Study of Music Opens Up New
The study of music awakens a new
perceptive faculty. Everyone can
hear, but the musician can hear overtones. Music does for the ear what
woodcraft did for the eye of Feni-
more Cooper's heroes. No common
person could sec as much as Leather-
stocking, and therefore no common
person got as much enjoyment out of
life. Thorcau when walking with a
friend listened to him wondering
that any one could ever find such a
small and modest thing as an Indian
arrow head. Then suddenly hc
stooped to the ground and picked up
something. "Here is one now," he
said. Just as many people go through
the world comparatively blind, so
many others jog along comparatively deaf. Naturally enough they wonder at the enthusiasm of musicians.
A story is told of a western organist
who was managing a scries of concerts. Hc required a guarantee fund,
therefore he called on a number of
the wealthy and prominent men of
the city for their support. One of
them, a banker, and non-musical acceded to his request, but not graciously. Something must have happened lo_ disturb his equilibrium that
morning, for as hc signed the list he
said sharply that he wished all musicians were in a place not generally
mentioned in polite society. The
organist was equal to the occasion.
He said: "On tlie contrary, we have
a little exclusive Paradise that you
mere business people know nothing
about. Further, you could not get
j into it if 3-011 had all the money in
the world. Kar-gate, celebrated by
Old John Bunyan. leads into this select and peculiar Paradise arid if it is
to open easily music study in childhood is necessary."

Profitable Farming
Successful Operations Carried on at
Provincial Jail
Following the custom of past years
stock will be wintered on the jail
farm at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan,
again this winter for sale next spring.
At the present time there are on the
farm seventy head of cattle, of which
forty are young steers 2 1-2 years of
age. Others tire being gathered up,
and they will be fattened for sale in
the spring.
Lust, year the government-bought
cattle at $63 a head and sold them
the following spring for. a little more
than $150 a head. The profit realized
was a handsome one, and it is expected that the coming season's operations will be tqually successful, as
several otters to purchase stock next
spring have already been received.
Wheat on this farm Yielded 25
bushels' to the acre, grading No. 1-
and the grade was specially - commended by the grain inspectors. All
the root crops have turned out exceptionally well, and more than 2.500

Half a Century Ago
John Mitchell, the grandfather of
the present mayor of New York, was
an Irish rebel. But the fact that he
was no lover of England did not
blind him to the savage wickedness
of Prussianistn. One of the New-
York papers quotes an illuminating
comment on the Hohenzollerns by
Mitchell, which appeared in the Irish
Citizen on July 23, 1870.    He Wrote:

zollern, whether in the pages of their
partisan, Carlyle, or anywhere else,

treachery of that royal house. N"o

No  pacifist of any kind can    ever J

more than a single sentence without {
revealing that he or she is possessed!
and    obsessed    by the strange belief!
that, because war is. a bad thing, all j
who take part ia it are on the same
moral level    and    open to the  same
condemnation.      This    is the. absurd
fallacy which    underlies  all  pacifism
and vitiates every argument    offered
by   the   followers   of that miserable
cult.      As logic the    leap thus made

The managing director of the
Lady&tuith Smelting Corporation,
has given orders for the closing
down of the Ladysmith smelter for
several months at least.
He has found it is very difficult
to maintain a supply of ore that,
will keep the smelter running continuously, and therefore until
other arrangements have been
made it bas been decided to suspend operations. Iu the meantime the company will turn its attention to developing mining properties with the object of having
enough ore on hand when the start
is made to guarantee continuous
running. Several of tbe properties justify tho conclusion that this
will not be a very difficult matter,
as many of tho mining properties
will be soon in a position to ship
large quantities of ore. Tbis is
particularly true of the mine in the
neighborhood of Sooke. In the
meantime there will only be a few
men kept at the smelter.
The above smelter shipped its
matte to the Canada Copper Corporation's smelter here, to be converted into blister copper.

porarly interfere with service, the men in the field soon restore
communication. Telephone service is continuous���as continuous as hutnan power can make it.

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
