B. Pitoher. Ten minute speeches were given by prominent citliens, Interapersad with patflotio music. "Our Oountry's Needs" was spoken to by Martin Woolf, M. P. P. The speaker stated that ten minutes could be prolonged Into ten'hours to dilate on such an Immonte subject. He was sure that our country's needs In so far as tumlahing brave and vlgoi^a young men was oonoerned, would bo completely and otflclontly mado by the young manhood of the west, and pnrtloularly thoae in this immediate district, moBt>'of whom were on the stand. i "O Canada," was aung by the pupils o( the Cardst�Mi publlo echool under the dlreotlqn] of Mlssi Sykes. The little voices ainglog of our fair country will remembered by tlie congregation and the soldlorH present, and especially will the latter remember the oooaaiott when they are "somewhere in France." E. N. Barker. Mr. B. N. Barker, tha local sacietary of tho Red Oroaa society, gave au ablo talk. He very paronthetjcally registered vlgoroUs protest against the apparent lethargy of some of the people, who seemingly did not understand tho urgent needs ot this great organitation in connection with the winning of tlw war. The man who threw a $10 bill down to the Red Cross, and thought that he had done his full duty, came in for his share, ae a slacker in giving. The work readied right up into the front line_ trenches, and the efficient aid that' the Red Gross has given on tho batUefieldB, and to the wounded and dying, if paid for by the govomniont, would cost many millions of dollars. Messrs. Frank Layne, W. T. Men-dew, A. B. Cure and tJeo. Hobins ren derod the quartette entitled "The Boys are Coming." Our Boya. Mayor Pitcher was the next speaker, on- the toast, "Our Boys." He said, "We are proud of our boya, those who are already "over there' and those who are right here, and those who will soon go 'over there'." He was sure that mothers and fathers wore proud of the fact that they had raised sons who oould answer their oountry's call In an hour of need, and he waa satisfied that these mon -would acquit tliemsalvea in honor, In ad vanoe of the ideal behind the donfiict and he wished them God Speed, and a safe return, and assured them that each would be remembered day by day as long as they were away. Mr. J. Y, Card referred to the two sons of iWiniam Laurie, who practiced aa aa attorney In Oardstou for a number of years. He read the four verses written by W. M, Horachell entitled "The Kid Has Gone to the Colors." , , ^ra. James T,eadbetter then sang a 4 BIG ar. CAR STREET Rochoiter, N.

Hn waa sum Ihnt the hoys wore going forward with determination to win, and that the army with their help and tho help of others or their kind, and with the right m\ their side, would be invincible to any foe. Ho wiahod them "Goodbye," which means "God be with you," and this he repeated. LUtle Miaa ZeUla Phipps, accompanied by hor sister, .Mra. Lillian Smith, sang very Bwoolly the American song, "Over There." Although a difficult piece for u little lot, tho aolo was ran-dernd without hesitatiou or (ear, and went right to the heart of lier heareis. Woman ^psaka. 0 One of the most pleasing features of the evening was a patriotic speech by Mrs. Dr. V. V. Ohrlslle. She aald, quoting from one of the authors, that it waa the men ot vision who backed up their ideas by their fnlth and determination, unswerved by the paaa-Ing of a lew short years, who see'the fruition of their labors and visions, and wore not afraid to wait for the accomplishment ot their ideals. This was the case today. A pretty and pathetic little story was told of the ADD CAttDSTO.V SAYS Belgian and French mothers, who, turned out of the town which had been ruthlessly sacked by the Huna, were forced to march 20 miles back into Oermany, ,ind the little tots one by one, dropped out t\'tth their tiny tired feet by the road-side, where they were later buried by tho tender-hearted British. This struck so deeply Into the hearts ot her hearers that there wore few, If any, who did not resolve then and there to do not only "their bit" and their share, but all � they could. In the arniy or out, for tha suffering of the Anglo-Saxon race. Eloquent Speech. Mr. A. B. Cure then sang a patriotic solo, which was foUo-.ved by an eloquent speech by Rev. Isaac on "The Navy," referring modestly to the torpedoing of the vessel which carried him from tlie Old Country to Canada in 1915, when he very norrowiy escaped being drowned. He said "right ly did the Kaiser make mention of the British army aa contemptible, ao far as numbers were concerned at tho beginning of the war, but at no time has the Kalaer or anyone else ever been able to aay that the navy of Great Britain, which is three times as strong aa any other in the world, is contemptible."

IM HOW TO BUY SHOES and how to take care of them afterwards 'y^OST people could add ten per cent to the life of their shoes by buying the proper shape and the right size and then giving the shoes more care afterwards. That really means a saving of ten per cent. An ill-fitting shoe, for example, not only soon loses its shape and appearance but it does not wear well. boot made, c,"!pcciallv for rough, hard So, first of all, be sure to get a shoe that is the proper ."^hapc for your foot, take care that it is exactly long enough and wide enough. Take your dealer's advice about this. He sells thousands of pairs of shoes a year, and by experience can tell you the .shape and the size of shoe yof< should have. Each time j'ou buy a pair of shoes, let J'our dealer measure your feet. Sometimes the size you tkink you wear is not the size that will give the correct fit, because si-^ics are not to be relied upon absolutely. There is bound to be some variation in sizes. The workman may stretch the leather occasionally a little tighter over the last when he is making a certain shoe, thus reducing the space inside the shoe slightly below the normal standard. It is also wise when you arc buying a shoe to consider the conditions under which you will wear it. If you will be tramping through the mud and slush, get a heavy shoe that we make for that kind of wear. If you want a stylish walking shoe for ordinary street or ofTice wear, buy a lighter, more shapely A.H.m. model. If you are a farmer or an "outdoor" man, gel a substantial wear. It is true economy to iu-ivc u\o, three or even four pairs of slioci?. It pays lo ii.-i\c shoes for wet and stormy weather-shoes for fine weather-shoes for winter and for summer. Shoes will wear much better and alw,-iys look better if put away for a few days occasionally, preferably on n pnir of shoe trees. It is airo true economy to kcej? your shoes well polished. Frequent poli:,hing iielps to maintain their smart appearance and keeps the leather soft and in good condition, thus prolonging the life of the shoes. If your shoes get wet don't put them in a very hot place to dry, and don't at any time put them up against a hot radiator or stove. Such heat takes the life out of tiic leather. That is what causes shoes to crack and split. Puuwet shoes on a pair of shoe trees, lay them on their sides so that the air can get to the .soles, and let them dry slowly snd natural y. We are telling you these shoe facts because as Shoemakers to the Nation, we want you to get the utmost wearandvalue from every pair of shoes yo'j buv.

Little Miss Zelda Phipps then sang "Buy a Liberty Baud tor the Baby," and again took the congregation by storm. Preaident Wood. The last speaker of tho meeting was President K. J. Wood, who spoke on "Soldiers Abroad and at Home." Me asked the 29 copscrlpted men and volunteers who were on the stand to rile that they might, be seen by those tircsent. He felt safe In being defended by such able men) and prayed that they would have power to do right under aU circumstances. If they nad to lay down their Uvea on tho fields ot Flanders, or anywhere else, It wae alright, tiiey had done their duty, and If they returned, they would duly honor them. He urged the folks at| home be untiring In their efforts In backing up the soldlerB abroad, and 'closed by calling for three round cheers for our soldiers. This was responded to generously, and was followed by a medley of patriotic airs, given in the form of a piano solo by Miss AVlnnltred Ctold,' and then the congregation arose and sang "Ood Save Our King," and "Our Splendid Men."

The hall was tastefully decorated by Messrs. F. Best and D, D. Spencer, while the refreshments were served by Councilman Phipps and the First and Second Ward RelAef sooletles.

Not since the departure ot the Thirteenth Overseas Canadian Kifles, under command of Major H. B.
