VULCAN ADVOCATE, October 23,1818. 



N 7 • 35 Cases In Town, 
Medical Health Officer 
Busiest Man in Town 


Within a week the epidemic of Span 
ieh Influenza has increased in town 
and district. Altogether, reports Dr. 
Knowles, medical health officer, there 
are thirty-five cases, 30 of which are 
in town and five in the country. The 
disease is as yet in a mild form gen¬ 
erally speaking, although two cases 
of pneumonia, both in the country, 
have developed. The danger is, how¬ 
ever, that with public negligence, the 
trouble may develope to a mucTi more 
serious stage, and Dr. Knowles calls 
upon everyone to do their utmost in 
keeping the trouble as confined as pos¬ 

Dr. 'Knowles calls the attention of 
the public to what has already been 
published in regard to prevention. The 
greatest care must be taken in every 
instance. There must be as little con¬ 
tact as possible between people, and 
spitting is strictly a violation of 
health regulations. Quarantine must 
be strictly observed by those under it 
There have been instances where 
quarantined persons have taken the 
matter into their own hands and gone 
abroad. Groups of people gathering 
together in barbershops, stores, res¬ 
taurants, etc., whether for conversa¬ 
tion or any other purpose is against 
the ruling of the health authorities 
and should be discouraged. Had it 
not been for the prompt action of the 
L.j^/of health in closing every meet¬ 
ing place down at the beginning of 
the epidenmic, there would have been 
very many more cases today than is 
actually the case. The medical officer 
is doing all he can to overcome the 
trouble, but, it is pointed out, a great 
deal depends on the citizens them¬ 
selves; if they will exercise care and 
vigilance they will render invaluable 
assistance. No notice has yet been 
given as to when it will be possible to 
remove the present restrictions. 




Buy 1,400 rifle cartridges or, 

100 hand grenades, or, 

104 rifle grenades, or 
10 g&s masks, or, 

B0 pair of soldiers’ socks, or, 

10 pair of soldiers’ boots, or 
Knives, forks and spoons for a

Pay Canada’s war bill for 4 1-3 sec¬ 
onds, or, 

One soldier for 40 days, or, 

Feed 100 soldiers for 40 days, or, 

Buy 1,000 yards of adhesive tape. 

These are only some of the things it 
will do, at that. It will inculcate a de¬ 
sire to save and be thrifty. Have you 
ever thought of how much you have 
done without since the war started? 
.You . ave denied yourself things which 
before the war you thought you could 
not get along without. But you did it, 
because you made yourself do it. Af¬ 
ter that it is easy to buy Bonds. Buy 
them for the children and see how the 
interest accumulates between now and 
when they are twenty-one. And also, 
see how eagerly the youngsters will 
want to add to their little store of 
wealth by saving their nickles wffich 
before went in candies. You try it, 
it is an interesting experiment. 

One cannot but remark on the beau- 
f and the striking qualities of many 
f the Victory Loan posters which 
ave been displayed during the past 
ew days. It is rare that asiy public 
ampaign calls to its aid art of such a 
igh order. One has only to note the 
epth of meaning in some of the draw- 
igs as for instance, in the picture of 
lie three women ploughing, with the 
aption: “They serve France, how can 
serve Canada” to see how evefy 
rode of appeal is being used to get 
s to assist in the great war work. 

The first annual meeting of the 
Kirkcaldy branch of the Canadian Red 
Cross Society was held in the Kirk¬ 
caldy church on Monday afternoon, 
September 30th, 1818. The Society 
was organized on February 13, 1918. 

TheIfollowing is the report; 

Nunlyber of active members: 17 
numberW associate members 2, total 
membership 19, money taken in $643.- 
35, paid in expenses $482.15, balance 
in hand $61.20, number of finished 
articles shipped 1064. 

After the annual report had been 
read and approved the Society proceed 
ed to elect officers for the coming 
year. It was moved and seconded that 
the standing officers be retained, and 
this was carried unanimously. Mrs. 
Mabel Seevers was elected second 
vice-chairman by acclamation. The 
list of officers is: chairman Mrs. Alice 
Skovmand, vice-chairman Mrs. C. 
Myers, second vice-chairman, Mrs. 
Mabel Seevers, sec-treas. Mrs. Vera 
Sheeran. » 

The society wishes to thank Mr. W. 
H. Seevers, at whose suggestion and 
efforts a booth was placed on the fair 
grounds at Vulcan on the day of the 
Stampede, also Mrs. Seevers, Mrs. 
Skovmand and Mrs. Gossett, who 
helped Mr. Seevers throughout the 
day. The booth took in $136.20, ex¬ 
penses came to $60.25, leaving a bal¬ 
ance of $75.95 to the Red Cross So¬ 

The Society wishes to acknowledge 
a donation of $4.36 from Earl Clark. 

The proceeds of the Red Cross 
Thanksgiving Dinner and social even¬ 
ing held on October 14, were $138.00. 
Money for supper tickets $66.50, raf¬

Mrs. Gossett) $3.00, plant, auctioned

Much of the drudgery is taken out 
of hog feeding by the use of the self- 
feeder. According to investigation* 
carried on at the Experimental Farm 
at Ottawa, hogs, after they have 
reached a certain age, do better when 
fed in this way provided the proper 
mixtures are used. Strange to say, 
when properly handled, dangerous 
and wasteful over-feeding is not so 
likely to occur with the self-feeding as 
when meals are given at stated hours. 
It has been shown that the hogs are 
the best judges of when they should 
take food. The feeder is fully describ 
ed in Special Circular No. 15 obtain¬ 
able at the office of the Publications 
Branch of the Department of Agricul¬ 
ture at Ottawa. This bin-like recep¬ 
tacle is easily made at a cost of about 
$10 even when new lumber is used in 
its construction.

The meeting of the Vulcan Board 
of Health held last week-soon came to 
the conclusion to close down school, 
church Opera house and any other 
public meeting until such time as the 
influenza epidemic had abated. Since 
then nothing of a public nature has 
taken place. The Union School Fair 
and Field Day, whioh was fixed for 
Saturday, is postponed. The Lodges 
are not meeting, and social events of 
every description are at a standstill. 

The King of Bulgaria has abdicated 
and his son, Boris, now reigns in his 
stead. Thus does Ferdinand get the 
son in his place instead of his place in 
the sun. 

A. B. IShimp and family of Stavely, 
L. E. Newton and family of Nanton, 
J. E. Shimp of Portland and O. Ever¬ 
son, of Fort Benton, Montana, were 
visitors at the C, B. Shimp home, Vul¬ 
can, over Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Wm. 
Shiihp of Boydon, Iowa, have been 
making Vulcan their home for the 
past two weeks, and expect to remain 
here until travelling conditions upset 
by Spanish Influenza, are more fav¬ 
ourable. They will go from Vulcan 
to visit their daughter at Kalispell,

Big Campaign Opens Mon¬ 
day October 28th; $700,000 
Is The Quota 

The local organization for the Vic- 
can district has about completed ar¬ 
rangements for the great Victory- 
Loan drive, and Commences on Mon¬ 
day, Oct. 28th. A large number of 
citizens have been appointed to act as 
canvassers. Their names are Messrs. 
P. McIntyre, S. Tucker, E. Synge, A. 
C. Middleton, A. G. Dickinson, J. S. 
Warden, J. Marshall, C. J. Northcott, 
Ed. Armey, D. L. Doane, R. Mitchell, 
Frost, Guy Johson, D. H. Galbraith. 
Ed. Lawrence, R. Dingwall, Rev. H.A. 
Boyd, L. U. Stack, W. A. Howes, A. 

It will be noticed that the men who 
acted last year are re-appointed with 
additional names to take the place of 
those who are moved away. These 
canvassers will receive the credentials 
and application forms from the secre¬ 
tary, on Friday or Saturday of this 
week. There has been a willingness 
expressed by the leading citlzns 
throughout the province to volunteer 
their services to the uttermost of their 
ability, and it is assured that the Vul¬ 
can canvassers, who did so well last 
year, being so well supported as to 
double the quota set, will not fall be¬ 
hind in reaching every person assign¬ 
ed to them. 

Each canvasser will be given an 
area to cover with t\hich they are best 
acquainted. They will carry their 
credential cards with them. Whilst 
they do this service at a very small 
remuneration,which reall does not cov¬ 
er their expense account, they do it 

cheerfully, and they hope that the pub 
lie who are well informed through the 
press as to the need of this Loan for 
the financing of the country will give 
them every support and consideration 
Being prepared to subscribe at once. 

The quota set for this district last 
year was $450,000, and the district 
showed its patriotism by subscribing 
oyer $1,000,000. This year the quota 
is set at $700,000. Although the 
crops throughout have not been up to 
last year’s standard there is no doubt 
that the district, if it will only try, 
can easily overtake the quota set, or 
even last year’s actual subscription. 
The district comprises the centres of 
High River, Nanton, Vulcan, Okotoks, 
Biackie, Brant, Champion, Cayley, 
Stavely, Midnapore and Red Deei 

Already several large subscriptions sight, and the analysis of last 
gear’s subscriptions show that the 
‘very rich and the modestly poor were 
the greatest subscribers, the middle- 
class well-to-do did not support it to 
the extent their means justified. It is 
to be hoped that no consideration of 
making more money than the Victory 
Loan will pay will eclipse their sense 
of duty. 

The Vulcan area runs from the Lit¬ 
tle Bow River on the west to Snake 
Valley on the east, and from township 
19 in the north, south to Kirkcaldy. 

Anyone desiring further informa¬ 
tion or wishing to assist in this can¬ 
vass are requested to see Mr. F. A. 
Elves, chairman, or Rev. A. R. Schrag 
secretary. The local headquarters are 
at the office of Messrs. Flood, Windier 
& Elves. 

Western Canada scored high at the 
international soil products exposition

ond, third and sweep-stakes in Wheat; 
first, second, third and sweep-stakes 
in oats; first, second, third and sweep- 
stakes in barley, and first and second

Seager Wheeler, of Rosthem, Sask., 
won first, sweepstakes and the $600 
silver cup offered by the Canadian 
Pacifie railway department of colon¬ 
ization and development for the besit 
half bushel of hard spring wheat. H. 
B. Shealey of High River, Alberta, 
was second in this competition. Nick 
Taitinger of Claresholm, Alta., won 
first and sweep-stakes for barley. The 
province of Manitoba took first prise 
for state vegetable collection, and 
Kildonan first for country vegetable

Champion Farmer Caught 
With Liquor In His 

Mr. O. Ditto, a farmer residing 
west of Champion, appeared at Vulcan 
last Saturday before police magis¬ 
trate F. C. Alcock to answer a charge 
of having liquor in his possession. The 
case was heard at two o’clock. J. M. 
McKinley Cameron of Calgary, appear 
ed for the defence. 

Ditto was oharged under the Alberta 
Liquor Act with having liquor in his 
possession. He pleaded guilty, and 
was fined $75 and costs. 

Ditto was arretted in Champion on

Vulcan and later released on bail, two 
sureties of $500.00. 

Mr. George Hoadley, M.L.A.,

Robert J. C. Stead in his new novel, I T Read the *<fVe»-tisement 
“The Cow Puncher,” (Toronto, the, Lyceum ,n th,s ,86ue ' 
Musson Book Co., Ltd., cloth $1.50), 
has written a notable book with a 
Western Canada setting. David Elden 
the cow puncher of the story, grows 
to young manhood on a ranch in the 
foot-hills, outside the influence of 
church or school. At eighteen he is 
accidently thrown into the company 
of a young Eastern girl, who enkind¬ 
les in him the ambition to be some¬ 
body in the world. 

With this purpose in view, young 
Elden leaves the ranch and goes to 
make his fortune in a young Western 
city. The first night he is swindled 
out of all his ready cash by a gang of 
card-sharpers, and he takes a job next 
morning as a coal heaver. For a time 
it looks as though Dave’s course 
would be downward instead of up, but 
he fortunately comes under influences 
which revive his ambition for 

About this time the big western real 
estate boom breaks out, and Dave’s 
course is meteoric. His wealth comes 
quickly and goes as quickly. Follow¬ 
ing the collapse of the boom a tragedy 
in his love affairs sends him as an en¬ 
listed man 'to France. In the closing 
chapters is found one of the highest 
patriotic notes struck by any author 
during the war. 

“The 1 Cow Puncher” is decidedly 
worth while. It is‘interesting and re¬ 
freshing, and at times inspiring, writ¬ 
ten with all Mr. Stead’s intimate 
knowledge of the West and skill of 
delineation. Through the book runs a 
happy vein of humor and philosophy 
which is not the least of its charms. 

It is illustrated by Arthur Heming, ex¬ 
lumber man and North-West Mounted 
policeman, and is announced by the 
publishers as an all-Canadian book— 
written by an all-Canadian, illustrated 
a Canadian, and printed and bound in 
Canada. It should receive a warm 
welcome from the Canadian reading 
public. The United States edition is 
issued by Harpers.

The Fcare has not been without its 
crop of wild lumors. Somehow a ru¬ 
mour originated in Calgary to the ef¬ 
fect that the whole town of Vulcan 
was quarantined and that people were 
not allowed to leave or enter the 
town. As a consequence, many country 
people who heard this did their week¬ 
end shopping at other towns. So far 
there is no ban on business. Even the 
Victory Loan campaign will be carried 
on to schedule although there was 
some talk of having it postponed.

Throughout the war there has been 
a lamentable lack of co-ordination be¬ 
tween the government and the work¬ 
ers. Instead of cooperation there 
seems to have been distrust, and the 
treatment meated out by the govern- 
mnt has been high handed ip charac¬ 
ter. At the very outset labour should 
have been taken into consultation, list 
ened to, and advised. Instead, mas¬ 
ters have been the reverse. It is idle 
to talk about the unpatriotic-spirit ac¬ 
tuating strikes in wartime; it is equa¬ 
lly unpatriotic to ignore the just de¬ 
mands of the workers. But the latter 
have never been consulted in any mat¬ 
ters and there has been none of that 
co-operative spirit here which has 
shown itself to be oapable of such 
good in the United States and Great 
Britain, where it has been exercised. 
Our situation in regard to labor today 
is much worse than it should be and

Personal Xmas Greeting Cards 

Exclusive, but not Expensive 

Note the difference between Britain 
and France and Germany and Aus¬ 

! For four years Britain and France 
have suffered reverses. In 1917 they 
! saw two Allies in the East drop out of 
the scrap and they went on fighting. 
In March 1918 Britain suffered a sev¬ 
ere defeat, but you heard ilo whining, 
no cry for quarter, no plea for peace. 

When the German soldier is up a- 
gainst it, what happens? “Kamerad” 
and hands up. So too with the Ger¬ 
man nation. Four years of victory 
found them insolent and arrogant as 
ever. Four months of defeat and what 
happens? The bully turns coward; 

Personal Greeting Cards take the place 
of more expensive presents, answer the 
same purpose, and carry their message 
of good comradeship, good cheer and 
well wishes. •

that this applies to soldiers who are

This impression is unfounded. The 
proclamation applies exclusively to 
men who never have been ordered to 
report at the depots, but have been

or furlough. “Harvest leave," as it is
