All those tfxking part deserve great praise. Jt has only been three weeks since,the operetta was cast and'soma very hard 'work and practice has .been done by all. Mrs. Roy Stoddard and Mr. Ben-nion were a great help. Mrs. Stoddard hav'lng charge of the" dances and Mr. Bennlon 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, tho performers not having time to go home. fMlss Nellie Taylor had charge of the lunch. She was ably assisted by Mrs. C.

The teachings of the Bible students arc not pacifist.in any sense or degree; nor do they advocate "peaco at any price." in fact they do not preach peace at all, On the contrary, tho Bible students .have for over thirty years pointed to the acrlpturog to show that this present condition of things was coming upon tho world, as .anyone can prove by consulting the works ot the late Charles T. Russell, 'the foun der of the association. The first book of the series was published In 18'8C. The fourth volume, "The Battle of Armageddosi," was written by Pastor Russell over twenty years ago, from which I quote as follows;-: page K), "The approaching trouble Is Inevitable: the powerful causes uro all at work, and no human,power Is able ro arrest their operation and progress to ward the certain end: the effects must follow, as the Lord foresaw and foretold." Now, that the very things pre dieted are coming to pass, how incon sistent It would be for us to advocate peace. / ' ' Twenty years ago Pastor RussoU pointed out that the trbubic to come upon Christendom would be in the nature ot war, followed by revolution and anarchy. To show that our pd.ii-tion has not changed, I quote from a letter from the president of this as soclation to the Secretary of State tar Canada, dated Feb. 20, 1918, an fol lows: "They (Bible students) have no disposition to interfere with or at tempt to stop the war. They* coihd not if they would, and they would not if they could, because it is a clear ful fllment ot Divine prophecy." I would ask Jlr. Symonds or anyone else to kindly study the teachings of this association before endeavoring to present them in .public. Thanking you for your space, 'i'ours for "le truth, i P. H. HARDING. place.

And'whereas tlic Lethbrldge district Is the centre ot distribution for a large amount ot farm machinery,- including fractorii and other machinery used in the producti6n of grain, hay and other farm products. And whereas an Act Is' being considered by' the I'rovinclal Legislature to require machine companies to kyep a stock ot repairs at the cities ot JCd-monton and Calgary. And whereas ihc amount of machinery sold and distributed fr.om J.etli-bridgo Is very large, possibly as large as either of tho other points, therefore �be it resolved that we, the Farmers of Ihe Lethbrldge^ District, in general Do Not Pass Up The MoKne Universal Tractor ' The Opportunity Is Yours Todfty .

If 50,000 Canadian farmers each replaced one horse with a Ford, 250,000 acres would be added to the * Nation's ^urce of food supply and enqugn extra food made available to feed lbo,000 people. ' ' j Just think what a great service this means to the country at the present \ time and the benefit to the fariners from the sale of food produced on . thisacreage. " � A Ford car also saves the farmer 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-obsts less to run and keep, ahd is far easier to take care of.
