K. 11 WOMEN have played a votv important part in the world wide war, and in Canada linve demonstrated them--solvcs as being capable of handling practically any hind of work. They have assisted railways, and are at present employed by the  0. P. R. in various departments .. connected v.itli the opei'ation oi' ' trains. The women of Canada ,.liavQ helped to save the crops, and, -done wouderlul v/ork on the - farms. jDurijig the autimin the lli-yu Hi-ou girls of New West-m'iiister eonsid'crably helped to . .save the berry crop of British GoUunbia, and the acoompHuyjng photograph .shows u party of .tliese jolly looking girls about to commence their daily task at HiKh View TJauch, Hatzie. The party left New Westminster by the S.S. ,"Skenna," and' after a delightful trip arrived at Hatzie late in the . evening. - M^any new and interesting experiences awaited' the girls at their new lionac, but they had evidently decided: to overcome every obstacle with a sm'ile, and their resolutions were nobly curried out. This particular parly was assigned sleeping quartets in the house, and the cellar was divided into dining rooms for all the 1^ girls on the ranch, numbering about forty. I'laeh party of girls, asually six or eight, looked a"fter its own cookiiig, two giris taking charge of the meals each day. ' The system ot pickilJg ami packing 'the fruit was always fascinating to the pickers.^ Each girl, attired in overalls,' earried a small tin suspended from her waist .by a string, and into it the i)erries were dropped, iight tins of berries filled a tray or stapd containing eight boxes, and three of tjiese stands formed a crate. All agreed that the most important person on the ranch in the berry .season was the packer who received the berries in tlie packing .shed and gave each girl credit for herwork by a system of holes punched on individual cards. Before leaving tlic lli-yu girls gave a most successful concert and da!k'e and about !i;.")0 was handed to the Ilatzie Patriotic Piiiid. Itniijetlu'c the gifls wcri' delighted with their experiences.
