The adult population rolled up in great force to witness the efforts of the chil- -dren, and as the ball was held in aid of the Red Cross Society, that institution should benefit consider- ably. The teachers, Mr. and Mrs. Haymes, are to be complimented on the children's display, and the gen- erous assistance rendered by par- ents and others cannot be too high- ly appreciated.

It is. true taast 1915 van ished. into i o of lost years over 11 mdleths ago" but we may .really reckon that our improvement in this respect is progressive, and that the Commissioner will be able to report a still further decrease in the percentage of "offences" to population in 1916. In 1914 the per centage was 5.49, and last year it fell to 4.01. On the surface it seems to be a serious indictment that one in every 25 of tLe popvlation was .guilty of a breach of the laws; but, as a matter of fact, that arithme tical calculation is entirely mislead ing. Of the 14,864 persons charged, the majority were simple ordinary "drunks,"' the same offenders figured in the police list over and over -again, and over 8000 "off...
