I.ondon, May 6.-Lieut. General Sir nohert Uadon Powell, addressing u central m�etlng of hoy scouts at the Guild Hall, told of work The poor little fellow in his int'atnatloii v,-ialied to bi'. a| hero. A German i.'olumn was passing along a wooded dEi.'llo and the hoy was caught and asked whether the French were about, lie refused to give any information. I^lfly yards fur-thov on. fire wa.s opened I'lom, the, cover of the wood. The prisoner was asked In French if ho had known that the enemy was in the forest and he did not deny it. "He went with firm step to a telegraph post and stood up against it with a greoh vineyard behind liim and received the volley of tho firing party with a proud smile on his face. Infatuated boy. It was a pity to see auch wasted courage." brwsItato acreage large If Season Good No Danger of Sliortage of Supplies of ! Spuds To the Editor of the Herald. Hear Sir: I would like to express on behalf G.W.V.A. their appreciation and gratitude to Miss O'Hara for rimnlng the concert last night at the Kmpress tlieatre, especially when one realizes the dISficulty in having to rearrange tlio programme within a few minutes of the doors opening. A nice programme liad been drawn up a week ago, and we had great promises for an orchestra and two musical solos, besides vocal solos, then at tho last minute along came cxeuaes. "Have to report at C'algary on Monday," or "Have got ulcerated throat," so that on Sunday evening Miss O'-il'.irii. had to ask two trtcnds, Mr. Wiiltlaker at the piano and Mr. Alex-.'lUder with violin, to oblige her by playing for her. and another friend who obliged was .Mr. Siimnor who sang "End of u Perfect Day" and an encore. i For all that the audience were pleased with the programme. Miss O'Hara's .�il.lendld singing being enlhnsiaati-cally applauded, so much that she had to sing five times. j\Ir. Sumner's rendering of "A Perfect Day" was fine, and for an on-chore he sang "Somewhere," and the reading of the "Goat that Never Was" gave a little variation to the pro-gramma. Mr. TorrlU should also bo thanked for floral decorations. Although there is nothing to apologise for' 1 think it is only justicu to Misa O'Hara to mako this statement in explanation. F. BASINGER. the call of the London. May C.-Great Britain's potato ttcroago'in 1918 will exceed that of 1917 by a5 per cent, according to tho food controller's compilation from preliminary returns. A feature of the return is that every single coiiiilry In KngUmd, Wales and Scotland, shows an Increase over tho 11)17 acreage. "Farming communities," says Iho controller's report, "have niado luag-iiificent rosponso to the calls upon I horn, and, unle'ss the season should prove abnormal and unfiivorablo for polatosa, there is no risk of shortngo of supitlloa during the coming year." ie F er l Tlic Hague, May 0.-SpoaUtug before tho Bavarian chamber on tho food situation, tho food minister suld lliut conditionB. permit the hope thut tho people would bo able to hold out. He said it might lie uocossary to reduce tho bread ration, but not before tho time tbat potatoes will bo plentiful. A reduction In tho meat ration was unavoidable, ho continued, but tlio milk and fat rations would not bo reduced. Tlio food mlnintor added that tho Biivurlun sitnation was fur bettor than that in many other Federal states. Standing for Service at Taylor Milling Co. Yards REGISTERED SHORT HORN BULL REGISTERED CLYDESDALE STALLION 1. (ROYAL DESCENT) Another Idrgo aiidienco .heard the i'^agiMis in song and sermon on Sunday evening. .Mrs. Fagan pleased her hearers with tho impropsivo solo. "1 Want to Go There, Don't You?" The duet was touching and well' rendered. .Mr. Fagan preached on "Tho Cell of tlie Conscience."' He' took for his lesson the story ot the woman brought to Christ who was caught In adultery 'and whon Jesus wrote on the ground tho accusers all left as Ho must havo wrote something of their lite, at least their conscience told them that they were not Without sin. Conscience is hard to define, yet it is tlie judge' on the throne of the heart, and we possess many kinds ot conscience. One kind was the weak conscience, and tho person who had a weak conscience was like the veneering of the furniture and could not stand too mucli heat or would soon warp oOt of shape. Another was tho polluted conscience made so by persl&ting in evil habits such as drinking, etc., until they had coasod to bo affected by the wrong. More ho said tho citizens and tho "City Dads," as thoy are called In the States, were In this class for allowing tho evil known as tho restricted dlKtrl(!t to remain in the ^Ity of Loth-bridge, , The conscience la not njways a safe guide, but only whon it is educated and knows the right and wrong, and then when the call ot tho oonBcienco comes, do not refuse or turn aside. It la itangeroua. Tonight tho subject will ho "Dancing," and tho spoakor will speak from oxporlonco and oliaervatlon. Ho will give reasons why you sliouUl not dance.
