The band was reorganized last summer with N. Lorenzo Mitchell as leader, and during the coming sum- mer they are planning for Sunday- open air concerts. To make a good appearance on public engagements the band decided to start a campaign for.funds with which to buy a new- set of uniforms. The big dance Sat- urday night is the first attempt. Fairfax Gordon, son of J. F. Gordon, of Raymond, and a marine in the. United States navy, was some time ago ordered to the Orient. He is now in the Philippine Islands, wtih headquarters at Manilla. He is study- ing wireless. New Elevator Work is being rapidly pushed: on the new elevator under construction for the Dudley Grain Elevator Co. Ltd of Calgary.

Propose a Library A movement is on foot, backed b: lending citizens and town cdunci looking to the erection of a gymnasiuu and library in the heart of the bus ness district of Raymond. The ques tion was mooted at a meeting beli recently attended by fourteen of th most influential men of the am they were united whole-heartedly in the schema. It was clearly shown that Raymond was sorely lacking in this particular phase of her comm nity life. Tlie young men had r place to congregate except, in place that were not calculated to uplift them, snd to raise the social' tone o iuc community a combined gymnasium and library seemed, the most feasibl plan. The building proposed will not a cheap one in any way. If the pres ent plans tentatively suggested are carried out, the building cost ai least six thousand dollars. Belgian Deportations Leo Van Assel, a well known Bel gian resident of Raymond, has ceived letters from relatives in Hol- land confirming the frightful condi- tions in his native, land, Belgium. The letters tell of the enslavement of the people and-of their -hurried de- parture for unknown destinations into the interior of Germany, information smuggled across the Belgium-Holland frpntier which is protected oy a.fence twenty feet high the wires of which carry a strong current of electricity; tells of great activity throughout 'Bel- gium by the Germans dn throwing up trenches and fortifications rigntback 10 Dutch frontier. These trenches ran through Mr.'Van Assel'B" old h'bme town. A nephew of Mr. Van Assel recently won the medal offered by King Albert for bravery displayed on the battle rfield. This same soldier relates a story of 'Hun perfidy which seems almost unbelievable, ;He and several companions in the engineering corps were ordered to blow un a bridge This they did. killing quite a force.of Germans, Returning to soldier heard cries is suing from the the stream spanned by the bjidge. They came from a Gerican officer and he was pleading to be saved. He said he had a wife and family of little children in Germany, .and so pitiful was his story that Mr. Van Assel's nephew and a comrade assisted him to land No sooner had he landed than hi whipned out a knife and rjished a his rescuer. But the soldier was too sharp and was on the alert for any treachery _ soon as the knife flashed he drew "His revolver and shot the German dead iED DEFEAT FR05I FltOXT tained through service brought about by a-unity from Atlantic to the Dr. Clark Dr. Michael Clark, M.P. for Red Leer, was the last speaker of the evening, and the verbal flailing he ndmiuistered Willie No. 2, wee Willie; and the German writers, would have affected men of any moral conscience by its power.

How much do jou believe In the English civIHzs- 1 tion and how much do you hate Ger- Man kultur? I am here'to'inform the tardiness of decision. AYhen the House assembled ever seat on the floor and in the galierie were filled. Diplomatic lives of Great Britain's allies occupie scats in ths gallery for distinguishe strangers. On the benches reserve for lords were many members of th .upper house who took a prominei part in bringing about the recen change of government. Among them were Lords Nbrthcliffe, Reading Burn ham, Islington and Pirrie. There als was a scattering of dominion minis tors, including Premier Massey an Former Premier Ward o?

What Reply May Be Providence, R. I., Dec. to the Chicago Jour nal today prints what it declares i the substance of the rerly to be mad by the entente allies to the German peace proposals. The Journal articl says: "The answer will declare tha firm conviction that Germany's pro posals are fraudulent; that they deliberately forth to create publi sentiment in favor of cause, th; they mean less than nothing and tha there is only one way by- which th teutonic governments can come hoa estly- before the bar of public opinion in this matter. "The allied" governments will stat that even if any suggestion of peace parley could be contemplated at this allies will never consent to bneMnch in that direction uati Germany voluntarily- withdraws from lie entire territory of Belgium, by that act, show her willingness to approach somewhat nearer the leve of the civilized nations with'- which she seeks to treat. i- "The allies will_recognize Germany's Itle to hold, during any peace nego- iations, whatever territory she has ecured by military methods, under he code of civilized warfare, in fraaee or Uiey will de- mand as preliminary to any peace conference that Germany shall firs') lay fcack to the Belgian government every penny she has collected in the orm qf monthly indemnities from that country since the beginning of he war, repay also to Belgium the mm of money to be agreed upon by he representatives of the neutral gov- ernments for the destruction of her cities, the violation of her soil and :he enslavement of her people and iend back to his home every Belgian f'tio has been deported into Ger- many.'"
