The  sad, brief intimation was received in an official wire from Ottawa this  morning by Mr.'V. Harbord-Harbordi his" brother-in-law, in the absence in England of the gallant officer's wife. 'Neither the,date-nor.  details as to how Nicola's hero, fell are at hand but it is known that  .as a signalling officer on the staff of the Fifth Battalion he was in  the midst of some of the fiercest fighting on the western front.  ?Wides read and profound sorrow at'the passing of a fearless warrior envelops the homes of Nicola and the entire district today, for  ���',' Jack " was everybody's Jack.

Bell - Editor : Ernest B. Mayon  LET'S ALL GET BUSY  Has not the time arrived for the ciiy officials to prepare for a general clean-up around the city. The snow has gone, exposing to view on  some of our streets and lanes, vacant lots and yards the accumulated  refuse of the winter months.  Favored, as we in this section are, with a covering mantle of snow  during several moDths, are we not as a consequence inclined to be  somewhat careless of sanitary conditions. Obviously, we are now on  the eve of warmer weather and with its arrival this neglect becomes a  source of great danger, and unless prompt action is taken may give rise  to serious epidemics. Yesterday was the day set apart at Kelowna  for a general "Clean-up Day." The afternoon was proclained a civic  holiday to enable all owners and occupants of property to assist in a  general cleaning up of the city. Teams for moving the garbage and  rubbish were provided by the city, scavenger and the cost of teaming  was born by the occupants. In short, the provisions of the Health By  law were strictly enforced.  Residents of Merritt, and visitors too, are well aware of the many  unsightly, unhealthy and untidy places even in the heart of the business  section. 0  Our city, beautifully cradled as it is in a healthy valley with air of  unrivalled purity should be cleansed of the germ-ridden rubbish to be  seen on every side. The beautifying of our home town should be  made an incentive for energetic individual and concentrated effort.  Those of our city aldermen who have been deputed to safeguard the  civic health and see that its health bylaws are enforced might with advantage give the matter of a " civic clean-up " their earnest attention.  Now would appear to be an opportune time for us all to get busy.  WHEN WILL THE ELECTIONS COME?  "When will the elections take place ? is the question most often asked by political students. R. J. McDouga], editor of the Penticton  Herald, who attends the sessions of legislature and looks down from  the press gallery into the political chess board and watches the moves  with a keen eye, sizes up the situation, as an impartial observer, ln the  columns of the Herald thus:  "No one appears to have any clear idea of when the elections will  take place, but it is a fair guess that they will come some time in July  probably rather early in the month. If the voters' lists revised at the  May court of revision are to be used, and that is fairly certain, the  elections cannot be held before the end of June. Many people expect  that they will be delayed until September, or some other fall month;  but such a course on the part of the government is rather doubtful, and  it would seem at present as if July was the best guess.  If the liberals prolong the sitting of the House' the Legislature will  not be dissolved much before the end of May. although in so far as  actual legislative business is concerned, it might as well be brought to a  close at the end of April."  Local Jewelers  Purchase Auto  JamesiSimpson, of Simpson &  Cranna, had an unfortunate  time last week when driving his  firm's new auto from Vancouver.  He figured on bringing the car  to Merritt by road via Washington and when at Everitt was inr  formed by the secretary of the  automobile club there that he  would be unable to get into B.C.  owing to the bad state of the  roads. Instead of going to Spokane he started to return Coast-  wards. Making a wrong turn  he got on a by-road and found  himself held fast in thick mud.  With the aid of much work the  car was extricated and the party  eventually reached Vancauver,  from which place the auto will  be shipped to Metritt by train.  He was accompanied in the car  by Cyril Walters.  Vpile at the Coast, Mr. Simpson "secured the agency for the  Edison Diamond Disc Grama-  phone records. Expert Demonstrators on the machines and records will be visiting Merritt  next week.  Collection Given  to Patriotic Fund  Lawyer J. A. Maughan spent  the week-end at main line points  on professional business.  Ed. Tingley, of Tulameen, was  a visitor in the City at the beginning of the week.  Why should two aldermen be singled out for a personal newspaper  attack for moving a resolution which the whole council passed without  a single negative vote. That ill mannered' comment of them being  "crazy with the heat*' is a nasty slur on the whole City -Council,  and an insinuation which a public board cannot very, well ignore  and still preserve its dignity. j  Thos. Somerville, of Lytton,  has been gazetted as deputy  mining recorder for the Ashcroft  mining division,- with sub recording office at Lytton.  David Dodding, son of Mr.and  Mrs. Dodding, of Lower "Nicola,  who has- been attending the  Agricultural College at Guelph,  Ontario, returned home on Tuesday.  Mr. and Mrs. Glen Campbell  and Mr. and Mrs. -Jones, of Canford Mill were visitors in thc  City on'Easter Monday and attended'the hospital dance in the  Armory that evening.  Although the rendition of the  oratorio "The Crucifixion " was  prepared and given solely for the  love of the music and without  any thought to financial results,  the sum of $39.90, the balance of  the offertory, after expenses had  been paid, has been handed to  the, Nicola Valley Branch of the  Canadian Patriotic fund. A  check for the amount was deposited with Treasurer Strickland on  April 20th, the day following the  rendering at St. Michael's church.

Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more  you produce the more you can save.    Producing and saving are war-service.  Make Your Labour Efficient  In war-time do not waste time and energy on unimportant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.  Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if  possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada  needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden.  Cultivate it with a will.    Make your labour count for as much as possible.  Do Not Waste Materials  There should be no waste in war-time.

Easter Day at  Anglican Church  Beautiful lilies and daffodils  were prominent in the Easter  decorations at St. Michaels Anglican church last week-end. The  floral display on the altar and  other parts of the church brightened the edifice for the occasion  of the great festival of the  Christian church. The real  charm of the adornment, lay ���in  its simplicity.  The vicar the Rev. N. J.  Thompson, conducted - all the  Eastertide services, which generally were fairly well attended.  On Easter Day Matins and Evensong- with celebrations of the  Holy Communion were observed,  the vicar also visiting the church  at Nicola in the morning. The  sermons preached were- upon  subjects incidental to the Resurrection and the Imrnor-<_...n.y of  Christ.
