BOY CONSERVATION MOVEMENT TO ARREST I. W. W.'S. Deming, X. M.. July 13.- Sheriff TV. C. Simpson and SO deputies left here for Hermanas this afternoon to arrest the men deported from Bisbee. j ional Advisory Committee for co-op He intends to hold them for Jnstruc- I eration in Boys' work, was organized. A great movement for the conservation of the Boy Power of Canada has been moving quietly but surety during the last two or three years. The leaders in boys' work have felt this great responsibility in the present world crisis. Governments have mobilized the man power. Industrial life has been speeded up. Resources have been measured and tabulated. Women have been organized. But the mobilizing, organizing, and conserving of Canada's greatest asset- the boy-has been left to a comparatively few men. These men have worked very hard, not without criticism at times, to bring to the boys of Canada a vision of the great part they must play in the great re-construction period that lies before us. Church and Y. M. C. A. leaders in boys' work, together with business and professional men. have recognized the splendid opportunity and have risen iu an efficient way to meet it.

A short time ago there was buriod at N'etherficld, Knflntid. tho remains of Nurse II. Hobday who was a nurse (attached to the Canadian Sanatorium. Soldiers from tho Sanatorium carried the coffin from the church to the cemetery. Nurse Hobday -was on duty lor a period of several months and gfciried the respect and devotion of all those she came in contact with, and many a man now back in Canada, and lomo of those still receiving treatment at Pinewood, owe much to this, gallant and brave nurse, who did Jpot relinquish her duties until absolutely com-' polled to by sickness.' Our bonk manager, Mr. Ktlpatrick, has invested in a Gray Dort car and spent the week-end in Lethbridge. Miss Mageo went to Lethbridge with Mrs. Harris on- Saturday and spent the week-end at her home. Mr. C. S. Noble spent the week-end" visiting friends at CUresholm. W. A. Murphy, of the Threshers Supplies Co. of Calgary, was a business, visitor here on .Monday. He says that business is good all along the line. Mr. Richardson of New York who runs a farm near here, passed through the villago on Monday and spent a few hours looking over the Grand View farm belonging to the Noble Foundation. He was very pleased with all he saw. The Independent Grain Manager here, Mr. Mongerson is walking round with a very big smile on. the reason being the arrival of a new baby at his home. The Red Cross workers on Saturday had another big day with selling ice cream in the Noble Store. A good lot was sold and the funds benefitted to a considerable estent. This appears to be a very good way to raise the funds necessary to carry on the good work. -  ' . �  The wife of our minister, Mrs. Les- �SSJ The Universal Demand is for TOASTED i rrmtto (Enllntt _ ** Hit HUM MT ***^ I rfront IW HON, BUT.

This feature has been most successful. About ten thousand boys in the teen age all over Canada have been following this course of training for a higher standard of life. Over 12,000 boys under military age have been brought together during the last year in Boys' Work Conferences. The ideal of an all round, fully developed life to meet the demands which will be upon them, hai been placed before these boys. And tin�r have become missionaries of this great movement to other boys in their own community. Thus the *vork has been carried on and has extended into rural communities and the largest Canadian cities. Surveys of the boy life have been made in Eome places.

On the Grand View farm of tho Noble Foundation, wheat is standing tully 2% feet high and is heading out well. While the majority of the wheat Is not so far advanced as that, still on every hand there is signs that the harvest will be equal to that of last year. Between here and Monarch the crops are also looking good and we are sure that if the Lethbridge Board of Trade would pay a visit to this district somo Wednesday afternoon they would see a lot that would encourage them in their efforts to further tho prosperity of Southern Alberta.  The alfalfa crop is now being cut and promises to be nearly as good as it was last year. On the land recently bought by Mr. 0.

GENERAL SMUTS ON IMPERIAL UNITV (Toronto Globe) The most picturesque figure from overseas at the imperial war conference, General Smuts, reached England wUh the honors of his brilliant campaign'in East Africa thick upon him. Popularity awaited him with open arms as a successful soldier, but there were other reasons why he stirred the imagination of the British people. What magic had converted this man of alien blood, who fifteen years ago was in arms against Great Britain, into a British general, leading a British force against Britain's enemies, and journeying lo Westminster as tho envoy of a great British state to testify to the unity, of the British empire? Geneml Smuts himself supplied the answer in a series of speeches impressive for eloquence and statesmanship. There was no apology for his role of fifteen years ago. Ho declared that he was right then and Great Britain was wrong; but Great Britain had repaired the wrong by making Soutii Africa a free country. Tills quotation from his speech at Edinburgh, upon receiving the freedom of tho city, is illuminating: "As a result of the policy adopted after the Boer war, they saw today a nation that fought against the British empire with a vigor and n persistence seldom noen in the history of the world-ihey saw it today fighting with all its strength for the common cause. That had been brought about, and could only have been brought about, by the spirit of liberty which had been the guiding principle of British history. Sir Robert Borden had told them that in the discussions they had had among themselves privately about the future of the British empire there was no great difference of opinion between thorn, and the reason was simple. They saw clearly that It was only on a basis of freedom and the completest autonomy that the British empire would continue to exist and would become Granger In the future. The British empire was not a state; It was half a world. It comprised old nations as well us younger nations, and all the vast congeries of stateH could pnly bo k#i\\ together in the tu< that would do tound to be the only solution. The spirit of comradeship, which was the only basis of union, was there, aiid on that basis lie was sure they would find the solution of our constitutional relations in the future." It is to bo hoped these phrases will ring In the ears of tho public men who tried to prevent the settlement which has made Botha and Smuts soldiers of the king. General Smuts preaches the true imperial doctrine, and bo is himself the highest pr*of of its virtue. Tho majority of tho whites of South Africa are not of British blood, and fifteen years ago they were either open or secret enemies of British rule. Today they are the loyal citizens of a great British country, built up on freedom and autonomy-the foundation-stones of the British empire.

Thousands of years ago "Nature" chose the climate and soil of this favored region as most suitable for growing tea.

It is of these Assam'teas,' skilfully blended with choice Ceylons, that Red Rose Tea consists. It is. this rich Assam strength that users of Red Rose Tea must thank for its splendid econ-, omy-for the greater number of cups it yields to the pound, fully one-third "more than ordinary teas.
