Memorials to Our Soldiers
A subject wl.ich is engaging tlic
attention oi' the people of Canada,
whether thcy bc resident in a metropolitan city or in tlic smallest hamlet, is the manner in whicli thcy can
best and mo?t appropriately commemorate the memory of their fellow Canadian citizens who, in the
6crvicc of their country ami .Empire,
gave their lives in the Great War.
There is no difference oi opinion that
fotne fitting memorial should by
erected in each centre of population
in this Dominion, largo or small.
There is also unanimity of opinion
that in cvery instance thc memorial
should be just as fine as it is within
thc capabilities of thc people to provide. The only question is what
form these memorials should take.
Recalling thc magnificent memorial monuments, shaft j, statues, arches,
fountains, museums, and other structures to bc found on every hand
throughout the countries of thc Old
World, one realizes that in this new
country of Western Canada there is
R sad lack of these artistic and inspiring structures. Of course "our
history has been brief, and but as a
passing moment in thc life of a nation. Wc have, of necessity, been
obliged to confine attention very
largely to the provision of thc more
practical and utilitarian needs of Qur J
pioneer condition. But the time has
now arrived when it becomes our
duty to commemorate in some permanent manner thc glorious memory
of our soldiers, and to do so in such
6 way as to provide a source of inspiration ior all future generations of
Canadians.
" In some sections of thc Dominion
there appears to bc a tendency to
exploit this universal desire to provide fitting memorials to our soldiers by erecting some building on
institution which is a need of thc
community in any event. This is not
thc right spirit, and it should be discouraged: ��� No attempt " should be
made to' capitalize public sympathy
.with, thc idea" of "a memorial in order
.-to provide some-service which sooner or later-.would have to be provided
in- the' public interest. Whatever
��� form thc -memorial may take, it
should be provided" because it. is,.', a
memorial,'and not because-cf "any
other mbtiyc.   .  ���
Each, community will,- of course.'de-
cidefor itself the form-and character
of the memorial to its-..own :-fallen
herpes. ������ In.some, places it has been
suggested, that, this should.take    the
form of an-endowment; fund for thc
."better education of. the, children    of.!

thoughtful consideration being given
by the men and women in cvery community to the provision of a memorial of the character best calculated
to impress, influence ancl inspire the
children of present and future generations; to inculcate in them a fervent
love of country; to develop in their

The flight is to bc under control of
a committee of the Aerial League and
thc World, and trophies and a purte

Britain's Powerful Warship j
H.M.S. Hood Will   Be    Mine   and
Torpedo Proof j
London. ��� Details of the biggest
and most powerful warship which is
being built on the Clyde for tho
British navy can now be told. The
j ship is His Majesty's Ship Hood,
whose designed speed, the representative of the London Daily News learns
on official authority, will be thirty-
two knots, and which may be increased during her trials to 35 knots.
Details of the vessel hitherto have
been secret. She is a battle cruiser,
and her length will be 900, or- only
one foot less than the Aquitania, the
largest of the British liners. The
Hood is expected to bc in commission within six months. Since the
keel,was laid down several striking
innovations in naval shipbuilding havo
been made, chiefly as the result of
the lessons learned by the experts |
during 1918, and these have necessitated alterations in thc ship's internal
arrangements.
She will bc mine and torpedo proof,
her hull being surrounded by a
"blister" or outer cushion, and there
will be steel armored walls inside the
vessel which will be an additional
safeguard.

the human system gets run down, the
blood thin and the nerves exhausted,
one of the most constant and distressing symptoms is headache. There
is always a temptation to use strong
drugs to case thc pain, but such relief is only temporary,- and is obtained at enormous expense to the nervous system, and the headaches return
with increased violence.
Rcal cure is only obtained when
thc vigor of the nervous system is
restored by such treatment as Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food.
Mr. Rene Page, Chauvin; Alta.,
writes:
"I have used Dr.. Chase's Nerve

That Dodd's Kidney Pills Cured Her

"I have recommended Dodd's Kid-,

for I keep the post office here, as the

Dodd's Kidney Pills are no cure all.
Thcy are' purely and simply a-kidney-
remedy. They are credited.with cures.
of  sore back,  rheumatism,   lumbago,
heart disease, diabetes, and   Bright's"
disease.   Thc reason for this is that
all these troubles, sprang from    dis- .
cased kidneys.
Dodd's.Kidney Pills acting directly
on the kidneys, put those organs   in.

gius Sazonoff,'foreign minister, of thc
Omsk government; Prince Lvoff, former premier; .Nicholas Tschaikovsky,

Thc "communication asked the peace

not bc . decided without the consent
of the Russian people.
The communication also requests
that resolutions relating to the status

committee asks that the_ peace conference assist the various nationalities to organize anarchy by providing
a provisional regime to meet financial,

this purpose recognition is sought for
the de facto governments which thc
committee says have been inspired by
democratic principles and supported

Admised Princess Patricias
Fine Body of Men and Appearances
Were Not Deceptive
Halifax. ��� 'Major-Gen. Sir Frederick B. Maurice, K.C.M.G., C.B., who
was a passenger on the Carmania, has
come over for thc purpose of delivering a series of lectures in New York.
Gen. Maurice stated he was glad of
the opportunity of coming with thc
Canadians, and especially with the
Princess Patricias, which happened to
bc the first Canadian battalion with
which he had anything to do. He saw
them first at Winchester and admired
them greatly. On January 8, 1915,
when they went into line, it was he
who had- reconnoitred their position.
They had impressed him as being an
excellently-fine body of men and appearances were not deceptive.
Discussing Col. Peck's statement
in thc house, Gen. Maurice said hc
had not personally known of any
unit in the British' army which had
revolted during the period of war. Hc
thought thc body of men Col. Peck
had reference to were a collection of
drafts, stationed at Etaples in. the autumn of 1917, and that no. complete
unit was involved. In any event .the
trouble" was very short lived.
Turning to the subject of the peace

Since Israel was a theocratic na- _
tion, perhaps the best method of re_'S
view will be to trace God's hand in-~
that nation's life. Israel was led,!"~
fe.d, clothed and disciplined by God. ���
Lesson 1. God's hand is clearly discernible in the   experiences of Israel
in Egypt.- Israel was to bc thc relig-1
ious- teacher of thc world, therefore.
the nation must sojourn in Egypt the,
most advanced in learning of any nation at that time. In order that Moses,
the great lawgiver, might be equipped j
with the best possible education, God;
used   Pharaoh lo oppress the people, i
This  oppression  served  a    threefold;
purpose:   (1) It served the testimony j
to the  Egyptian nation  that the liv- '���
ing God was thc God of Israel.   Thc
more thcy oppressed them, thc more
thcy multiplied.      (2)    It served    a
beneficent purpose in bringing the nation into ils own.    It required     thc
crucible of suffering to bring humanity into its own.    (3) It made thc nation willing to leave Egypt and go to
Canaan, thc promised land.   Had not
thc hand of oppression    been    upun

Mr. Blumenberg, the secretary of his
organization fled to Minneapolis, Minnesota, when thc riots occurred, and
his resignation-has'-since .been received from that city. "We have no
secretary, wc. havc no club rooms, wc

The   Boundary    Women's   Institute of  Greenwood are a very
active organization, and its members have  done a great works for
the boys'   overseas and at home.
In 1914 the members of the Institute decided thafe as there was
no Eed  Cross Society  here, they
would  direct all their  efforts to-
���wards that good cause.    They have
made an excellent showing and fehe
reader will have a good idea of the
work done when the last paragraph
of this article is read.     Now,   that
the fighting has ceased, there is no
great demand for Red Cross supplies overseas,  fehe Institute have
made their final shipment  to  Eed
Cross, Vancouver.    This does not
mean that they will Btop working,
but, in fature,  the Institute  will
Bfeill"carry on" and besides doing
their regular   work,,   feheir   main
efforts  will  be   directed   towards
helping local hospitals for Canadian
soldiers.    The average attendance

"Now, what good is the robin?
Everybody knows the robin. A
boy came along the road wifeh a
.22 rifle, saw a robin sitting there,
and killed it. I went over and
picked the robin up. Two cutworms were squirming on the
ground; the robin had had them
in his beak. I held the bird up,
and two more fell out of hie mouth.
o
Remember, one cutworm will cut
down .five tomato plants in a night.
The cutworm does his work and
fehen hides under the soil; Mr.
Robin comes hopping along, picks
in there and pulls him out���and
turns him into a robin. If anyone
tells you that a robin will destroy
one hundred cutworms in a day,
take it from him that it is true."���
Jack Miner at the National Conference on Game and Wild Life.
They Lie in France Where Lilies Bloom
They   lie   in  France
Where   lilies  bloom;
Those    flowers   pale.
That guard each tomb
Are   ' saintly     souls
That   smiling   stand
Close    by   them    in
That martyred land.
And mutely there the long night shadows creep
From quiet hills to mourn for them who sleep,
While o'er them through the dusk so silently
The grieving clouds that slowly drift to sea,
And lately round them moaned the Winter wind
Whose voice, lamenting, sounds so coldly kind.
Yet in their faith those waiting hearts abide
The time when turns forever   that   false tide.
In   France   they   lie
Where   lillies ,bloom
Those     flowers   fair
For them made room.
Not    vainly    placed
The     crosses    Btand
Within    that    brave
And   stricken    land;
Their    honor   lives,
Their   love  endurt-s,
y Their    noble   death
The   right    assures,
For they shall have their hearts' desire;
They  who,   unflinching,  braved the fire,
Across-the fields their eyes at last shall see
Through clouds and mist the bonds of victory.
���Percival Allen, in the New York Times.

The Tons You Eat
The Millennium Guild takes the
daily average of half a pound of
meat eaten by each inhabitant of
the United Stages and finds that in
50 years the average meat eater
consumes four tons and a half, or,
to put it in another way, this average person, at-the end of 50 years,
has eaten enough tons, of meat to
the equivalent of 6 beef cattle, 15
calves, 22 sheep, 40 lambs, 10 hogs,
100 turkeys, 200 chickens and
ducks, one deer, besides pigeons
and small birds a goodly number.
What a. slaughter house, we have
made out of the world! Yet, two-
thirds of the population of the
globe, it is estimated, never eat
meat;."- Among these latter rare

It's The Truth
The  first physicians  by debauch were
made;
Excess began and sloth sustains the trade.
By chase our long-lived- fathers earn'd
their food;
Toil strung the nerves, and purified the
blood;
But we their sons a pamper'd race of men,
Are dwindled down to threescore years
and ten.
Better to hunt in fields for health un-
bought
Than   fee   the   doctor   for   a   nauseous
draught,
The wise for cure on exercise depend:
God never made  his work for man to
mend.

Everyone responds to courtesy, face to face ' 'tal eph*ne

is the basis of successful business and real friendship.
