The- following Iett�r has been received by tho secretary of the Sir Alexander Gait Chapter I. Oi"D. B.: Mons, France, Nov. 11, 1918. My Dear Madam: I wish to thank you tor the great kindness you have shown in sending i Ibarge users of gas in the city this morning were notified by the Canada Western Natural Oas Co. to make ar-rapgements as soon as po.sslble to resume the use ot coal as fuel, as, owing to the great demand for gas and the absolute necessity ot protecting householders who are customors of the company in Lethbridge, Calgarj' and other places, the company couln no longer supply them. Among thosa who received notification today wern the Alexandra hotel, the Sherlock block and the Hull block. "It is true that such an order has been issued," said R. S. Winter, manager of the gas company here, on inquiry being made by The Herald, "hut the order is only temporary, we hope. It is- made necessary by- the fact that a couple of our wells which wo had. expected to be iu by this time have riot come in, and we are temporarily .short of gas. The new well at Barnwell , has heen turned in, however, and'is helping out considerably. "Leth'bridge is being used as well as any.other place along the line. Last winter the large consumers at Calgary were out off during the cold weather,' and the same action has heen taken there again as well as in the smaller towns between." During the year, owing to the increase in the price of coal and the fear held at one time that there would be a coal famine, many people all along the line, especially in their residences, changed over from coal to gaa for heating. This has been responsible for a greatly increased demand for gas during the cold weather, and the company in issuing the above order has undertaken to see that the' small user shall ba protected; One result of the order Is that maiiy Of the plumbers will work overt^ime on the holiday tomorrow. About half a dozen blocks and hotels here  are aitfected. Secretary Fleetwood of the school board was chuckling this morning because the 'board decided against changing to gas for heating the matter was under consideration. ^ �i- FFICIENI UNTO Him box for. the boys.

Undei' army regulations, the assessment ot a soldier's character based upon tlie personal knowledge ot the commanding officer regarding the man's character and the man's conduct sheet which contained a record ot offenses ot a militarj^ nature. In this war, personal knowledge by a commanding officer of a man'^ character ! has � been almost impossible, except A company of interested people and ministers attended the special prayer-maotlng In Wesley church last night and In a brief address Kvangelist Stephens spoke of the present day conception of Christianity I held by many. Speaking from Acts 4-17-13, where tho apostles were forbidden to teach or preach iu the name ot Jesua, he stated that tlifi same spirit existed today. Men do not want to feel that they must accept Jesus Christ and His atoning work on tho Cross in order to be saved. All kinds of opinions, doc-trlnos and beliefs are being ottered as substitutes in the placs of Jesus i Christ and His atonement. Mr. Stephens quoted from the Literary Digest which makes this sta^tlin^ slntement. "A protest west and east -west as far as Sau Francisco and east as tar as 1/Ondon-arises against the 'new world lines." By this is meant tho appropriation of the material ben-e/it.s of Christianity with a repudiation ot all or nearly all ot its vital meanings. "Tho modem world," says the California Advofate, "claims to have r,o need ot the a'onement of 'Christ, no need of His' intercession, no need of His regenerating grace. It insists that liumanily is essentially all right." An editor ot a California paper says "The modeni world sneers at the Idea of universal sin. No place for penitential tears,'no � need of Iieart cleansing by the Spirit of God. It has no doctrine of personal salvation because there is nothing to be saved from." Christ is no longer a saviour, because no Saviour is needed. Sin is not n reality. Christ to the modern world is a temporary convenience. It believes in tiie survival of the fittest." Evangelist Stephens stated that Dr. Freeman an Episcopalian of Minneapolis, Minn., 'in a speech 'at Gamp Lewis, Washington, said: "My church hag spent ?1,700,000 in institutionalism and I am through wVCa. it, because it makes the minister a manager of machinery instead ot a prophet of God. I am going back to the upper room life." "God help us to get back to the upper room of power, prayer and con-.secration" Said Mr. Stephens. ^The Evangelist states that Lethbridge is a beautiful city, but is in a critical condition spiritually because people have drifted away from the church and Cbi'lst. I The subject tonight will be "Three .great Requisites for this Campaign." Next Sunday afternoon Mr. Stephens j is going to deal with "The Greatest Need of Lethbridge. What is it?" and many are already anxious to hear i What the preacher, will have to say 'about the city.
