Finally he said that at the pre- sent day Kent is to the forefront in furnishing pioneers for other lands, a large whom had chosen Canada for their home. Speaking of the part that the Kentish and Eng- lishmen should take In the Dominion at large, he declared that no matter to which of the plcl political parties they belonged, they should strive to 'firing-those parties into line for free' trade between the different nations compoeing the British Empire. Both great parties in Canada, he said, are apparently bonded to Big Business, neither o! them appearing to be will- ing to put into practice their protes- tations of empire loyalty by tearing down. the barriers that separate the nations composing the empire. He urged Kentish men to strive within their parties to have imperial free trade pushed, as an issue, to the fore- ront. Referring to the general good that those present could do" for Leth- bridgo in the way of publicity, he ask- each man present to send an ac- count of the meeting, as it appeared j in the local newspapers, to all the papers in the county of Kent. Much publicity could -be given the city of JLethbridge in this manner and maiy of those they left behind, by leaning of the number of Kentish Men Men of Kent there are in this r.-ity, may be Induced to select Lethbridge as their future home.

He asked a Latin scholar what the word Cantium meant, and was told that it meant cor- ner or cornerstone, and that explain- ed a whole lot to him. From the days of the landing of St. Augustine on the 'shores of Kent, 'Kent had been the corner stone of progress of England; it had been foremost in religion, in sport and .in war. He called atten- tion to .the historical fact that 'the .British navy was organized in Kent several centuries ago when the in- habitants of the Cinque ports had sub- scribed for a few warships for the defence of the coast, also that the Kast Kent Buffs were the oldest in- fantry regiment in the British army, and the East and West Kent volun- teers were the first British volunteers Water Pan Is Correctly Placed In The Sunshine people realize the importance of the water-pan.

Now, the water-pan must be cor- rectly placed to be of any real use. If It Is placed' near the bottom of the furnace (see lower illustra- tion) the moisture has a long route (see ai-rows) to trave? before it reaches the pipes' leading to the rooms. It must pass alongside the fire-pot and radiator, and the terrific heat from these dries out nearly every particle of moisture ascending from "the pan. Very little 'reaches the pipes or passes through registers. Now, notice the location of the Sunshine water- pan. It is placed over the fuel door.

I was so thin-I weighed only 90 pounds, and! vomited everything I ate. Even water would not stay on my stomach.

BIG SUM OF MONEY Entered by Railway Con- tractors Against Cana- dian Government Ottawa, June of the big-, gest law tults entered in Canada for several years will be begun shortly with the federal government as de- fendant and the contractors of the National Transcontinental Rail way as plaintiff. The amount involved is about and that is the proper amount 'the government should pay tor the work done .by the contractors from the line from 'Moncton to Win- nipeg now nearing completion. Sev- eral months ago the board of arbitra- tion consisting of Collingwood Schrei- ber, chief consulting engineer to the government. Chief Engineer Grant of the National Transcontinental Rail- i way commission, and .Chief Engineer Kelliher, of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company, after an inspection of the whole line from Moncton to Winnipeg, agreed on a report deduct- ing about from the Amount claimed toy the contractors according to .classification of work under the contract specification.

H. aiton who spoke at considerable length and made one of the hits of the evening. The toast to Sister Counties was responded to by James Dawson in" a neat way, and he was followed by j L. L. Asquith, who recited one of Conan Doyle's tales of South Africa which was greeted with applause. W. Wildish then rendered an old favorite and was heartily applauded. Considerable discussion followed as i to the advisability of -organizing- a j permanent society, at the conclusion j of-which the following resolution wa; passed by a unanimous vote: i "That this gathering form them selves into a Kentish Society: if such a society is in existence in Englam to become a branch of that society and to become affiliated with other like organizations in the Dominion 1-iiat it have for its chief object the getting Into touch with all Kentish Men arriving, in Lethbridge, and that this banquet be made an annual fea- ture of the society." L. L. Asquith waa then elected pre- sident, J. L. Manwaring vice-president Fred Robins secretary. The greatest hit of tiie evening was a short address given by C. Russell, who had become better known to the banquetters as "Old Dad." He the oldest Kentish Man present and owned up to the fact that he was "past sixty-six." He carried his mem- ory back into the early part of the last century when Great Britain had a tariff, comparing the cost of living and the rate of wages in Kent in tnose days with the cost of living and rate of wages in Kent today. He de- clared that the younger Kentish men were fortunate to be living in the earlier part of the twentieth century i and not in the middle part of the nine- teenth century. "We hear a whole lot a bout tariff reform these days." he said, "but if those advocate it had lived in the days of tariff In Eng- land they would not talk the way they now do.
