THE VISIT OF THE LAUOERS * > *> �:* �> *> * : * : > After the concert last night, many people remained to shake Harry Lauder by the hand. Some asked for autographs and others, old friends who knew him in Scotland, greeted him as "Harry" and he had a- kindly word for all. On one old lady saying that she was disappointed-at not hearing him sing "A Wee Deoeii an Doris" he at once offered to sing it and those who were still in the church had tho pleasure <$$ :\�iaviug t?uV. popular thy progress during the past year not only in increased membership but in greater interest and the willingness with which the members have enlarged the work to meet the demands of the war conditions. There are nine standing committees that have been responsible for the different branches of work. These are: Tea room, educational; decoration, wool, entertainment, refreshment, scrap book, war veteran/ visiting. Interest has been stimulated in the broader work of the'Nationat Order in several ways. The chapter sent, Mrs. Bentley as delegate to the annual meeting of the National Chapter held in Victoria in June. Mrs. Robinson was sent as representative to the meec-ing of the Canadian War Contingent Association in Calgary and was elected vtce-prosident. of the Alberta branch. Overseas pftis have been given *o the members having husbands or sons overseas. In view of the need of conserving food instructive lectures and demonstrations on canning fruit and vegetables were given hy Mrs. R. U. Davidson during the gummer. Also a resolution was passed to discontinue the tea room as a source of revenue and to discourage (he custom of afternoon teas and the use of other than war time refreshments. A cJubh has been formed for Home Nursing under the direction of Mies McCarty, Superintendent of Gait Hospital also one in First Aid. One day a week the members have met to sew for the Red Cross.

Many good hut misguided persons contending that pain was a direct visitation of divine provi-ih'nce, looked upon any nvans toward its alleviatio. as impious. - -But today few. if any, persons refuse to avail themselves of the great, boon which the discovery and use tn anaesthetics has hcatowed on humanity. As humane methods in surgery have advanced, so have they progressed in dentistry. To achieve painl^sMiess in dentist-ry has'i.etn our life stjdy.
