March 19.-On' Friday evening the pretty operetta "Sylvia," was presented by members of the Ma-gralli Ward choir. A large audience greeted the east, the house being crowded to the doors. Tho opening chorus, sung by the farm lads and lassies raking the hay was very real, the stage representing a real picture of a hay field with the sweet smelling hay and a miniature stack. All the leading parts were well Hiistalned, and excellent work wan done in the solo work, as also the dramatic part. Mrs. Aug. Wood as "Sylvia" did very well, and as a stately court lady and also In the garb of a country girl was fine. Mrs. Elva Marker in the role of "Hetty" the farmer's daughter, did excellent work, and has proved herself a star both in the musical and dramatic parts, .fared A. Mercer in "Sir Bertram DeLacyf" the court, poet, looked extremely well in his part and did fine work. His solo "Thine Forever" was among the best of the evening. Air. .las. Marker as 'William" the farm lad was well taken. Mr. Drew (Mark as "Prince Tob-by Turn" was very good and did very good work in both singing and acting. He along with the court ladies,. Miss Ada Glhb and Mrs. Rabcock, looked exceptionally well in their costumes and powdered wigs. The farmers' daughters, about lii in all were very pretty and did some good work in their dances and choruses. The farm lads received greut applause, when they marched out singing the chorus "The Karmer Is an Honest Man." The costumes and makeup added greatly to the entertainment and the great majority of people present appreciated ftie efforts of the choir, although there were a few present "sorry to say" who did not enjoy it. All thise taking part deserve great praise. It has only been three weeks since the operetta was cast and some very hard 1 work and practice has been done by all. Mrs. Hoy Stoddard and Mr. Ben-nion were a great help. Mrs. Stoddard having charge of the' dances and Mr. Hcnnlon stage manager. Mr. Bridge was musical director and Miss Bab-cock accompanist. After the matinee in the afternoon a dainty luncheon was served In the basement, the performers not having time to go home. fMlss Kellie Taylor had charge of the lunch. Whe was ably assisted by Airs. C. Jensen. On Saturday evening a very pretty dancing pafty was given by the "Grail Girls." The hall was prettily decorated with shamrocks in honor of St.. Patrick's Day. Mr. and .Mrs. (J. McMnllen of Leth-hridga spent the week-end with Mr. and Mrs. L. Rasmussen here. Commemoration Services. Tho regular services of tho L.D.S. church Sunday afternoon were in commemoration of the anniversary of the organization of the Relief Society. The speakers wore Mrs. Head, Mrs. A. Mercer, Mrs. Tomlinson, .1. JU Glbb and Bishop Harker. Returned Soldier. A number of town people were at the station on Thursday night to welcome home another returned soldier, (!orp. Herbert Foley. He enlisted somo two years ago in Calgary and lias worked with the Engineers. He was wounded in the battle of Ypres and l03t a limb, besides having'several other wounds. Corp. Foley lived here for four or five years, being the foreman of the CP.R. Construction On. After visiting here a few days with Mr. and Mrs. Loyd ho left for Coal-dale where he has accepted the position of foreman of the C.P.R. in that place. the teachings of this association. The teachings of the Bible students are not pacifist in any sense or degree; nor do they advocate "peace at any j taut Also Ask Citizens to Aid Where Possible - Want Repair Station Here Import u n i resolutions were passed by the meeting of the district farmers on Saturday afternoon. I'rohably one of Hit most important was thai, deciding not lo pay it higher wage to farm labor than $tl0 a mouth. Another resolution 'read as follows: v.horeas, It is well known that there is sr..'world wide demand for farm produce and whereas farm labor is likely I to be short for getting in llir- crop litis i spring, and whereas larm labor oTtor-I ing for service may demand exhorbl-wages that no fanner can at meeting assembled, quest, Hie Croviiiil,.' amend Lie Act now I, .to tin In provide for ;). panics selling machii,. lirldge District to )..-.!. of repairs in l.elhbt i !.-� other two above natte-d j TWO KILL!:; i]);-'-tfully i'"-''tsiattitf to '.; '-on-tideri'd, Machine cone in the l.etli TO MAKE STATEMENT ON AEEIEI) LOSSES �per .ell the Umdiui, .Mar. an. - J first lord of the ml initio make a statement commons today on en nage destroyed by Miami.

On the. contrary, the Bible students have for over thirty years pointed to the scriptures to show that this present condition of things was coining upon the world, as anyone can prove by consulting the works el the late Charles T. Kussull, the founder of the association. The book of the series was published in 18811. The fourth volume, "The Battle of Armageddon.'' was written by Pastor Russell over twenty years ago, from which I quote as follows: page 1", "The approaching trouble is inevitable: the powerful causes uro ali at work, and no human,power is able to arrest their operation and progress toward the certain end: the effects must follow as the Lord foresaw and foretold." Now that tho very things pre-dictad are coming to pass, how inconsistent it would be for us to advocate peace. ; � Twenty years ago Pastor Russell pointed out that the trouble to come upon Christendom would be in the nature of war, followed by revolution and anarchy. To show that our po'si-tlon has not changed, 1 quote from a letter from the president of this tis-soclation to the Secretary of State Tor Canada, dated Feb. 20, 1918, as follows: "They (Bible students) have no disposition to interfere with or attempt to stop the war. They could not: if they would, and they would not If they could, because it is a clear fulfilment of Divine prophecy." 1 would ask Mr. Symonds or anyone else to kindly study the teachings of this association before endeavoring to present them In public.

The Ford Saves tne the Horses lay and Oats i "T HAS been estimated that five acres of land are required to maintain one horse for a year, and that the same five acres would produce nearly enough food for two people. If 50,000'Canadian farmers each replaced one horse with a Ford, 250,000 acres would be added to the Nation's source of food supply and enough extra food made available to feed lOO.OOO people. , Just think what a great service this means to the country at the present time and the benefit to the farmers from the sale of food produced on this acreage. A Ford car also saves the former a week or more of valuable time each year, which can be used for further productive work. The Ford travels three times as fast as a horse and rig-costs less to run and keep, and is far easier to take care of. Willi labor so scarce and high priced, time means money, so do not delay in getting your Ford. BOMB MANNHEIM London.
