Campbell and Manning is undoubtedly
the most Important. On last Sa-
:lay Mr. Ira Manning assumed full
control of the grocery business which
has been heretofore conducted by the
i, Mr. .1. F. Campbell retiring to
eater the hotel business.
Six years ago last September the
firm or Campbell and Manning was
embarked on a business voyage in
iIranbrook witb a small grocery
store. Wince then the store has
grown wonderfully,' today carrying
one of the largest grocery stocks in
the city. Two years ago they commenced tho erection of the Campbell
and Manning block nn Hanson avenue,
which was completed last year and
which they still own. Last year
they purchased the Cosmopolitan
hotel property. Mr. Manning, re- I
leased his interest in the'hotel property in taking over Sir. Campbell's
interest in the grocery.
Since becoming associated with
Cranbrook business interests both
men have occupied positions of prominence in the social, political and
business world. Mr. Campbell recently concluded a term as alderman,
serving iu that', capacity in the diffi-
ii] t role of chairman of the finance
committee, with credit to himself
and the city administration of which
he was-a member. .Mr. Manning is
one of the prominent Conservatives

11 is now settled that Easter Sunday is the first Sunday alter the
paschal full moon—that is. the full
moon which happens upon or after
the 21st of March. If Ibis fjll moon
is on Sunday. Kaster is the Sunday-
after. This sounds almost clear,
but the learned writer mixes it up
again by explaining thai tlte full
;m referred to is not the real full
ui. but an imaginary moon, which
not, the same by two it three
days. To tiiriire the riddle out prop-
rly you must be an authority on
astronomy* mathematics and ecclesiastical history. Hut rou may find
it, an interrsttmr way tn fill in tbe
evenings between now and Kaster.
Whatever comfort then-- i.^ in knowing that Kaster came as early a*
this 57 years an", or even a day earlier in 1812, or even two days earlier in the year 3*7 A.I), in that
part of the world known as fjaul—
may be extracted at will. The
point is that in 387, also in 1812,
and iu 1850, w far as records go,
Kaster parades were not in f.shion.
and the particular date did not matter very much.
Hut it is a very different ma*f*r in
this* day and age. Many Rood

For a Long Life.
Thia Is tbo prescription for n long
life given by an old gentleman In Connecticut, who is ninety-nine years old
and still well and cheerful, "Live
temperately, be slow to anger, don't
worry, take plenty of exercise In the
fresh air, and, above all, keep cheerful."
Should the system get rim down—
digestive organs weak—the blood thin
and sluggish, take Vinol, which Is a
delicious combination of the medicine
—body-building properties of cods*
livers, with the useless grease eliminated and tonic Iron added. We regard Vinol as one of the greatest
body-hullders and strength-creators In
the world for aged people.
Mrs. Mary Ivey. of Columbus, Ga.,
says: "If people only knew the good
Vlnol does old people, you would be
unable to supply the demand; It Is
the finest tonic and strength-creator
I ever used."
We wish every feeble old person in this vicinity would try
Vlnol on our agreement to return their
money If It fails to give satisfaction.

to give a. few more del ails incident,
thereto, as, for instance, if is 2l.fi
miles distant from Lethbridge and
eleven boms and forty minutes are
consumed In making the trip. Now
that the reader has carefully followed tho lorogoing remarks wilt havo  a
clearer impression of where Creston
is than before, he commenced this
article, This, however, is itn itself
of hut scant interest, merely-serving, so to speak, as a point of departure.

We must put aside, for the nonce al
least, the poetic and ideal, and treat
of the practical. Today the question confronting the average individual is where* can I go, reap tbe best
results from Hie application of my
energy, and live in congenial surroundings? 'Most unhesitatingly do
we say that if one enjoys outdoor
life, where the climatic and social
advantages cannot be surpassed, but
withal a satisfactory livelihood
awaits the man who will get iu and

With regard to the climate, it is
indeed rare for tbe thermometer to
touch the zero point in winter; summers are delightful, both day and
night; the former are warm. the
latter cool enough to enable one to

words on the soil will interest the

This dlrTers somewhat in the different localities. At Krickson, three
miles east, is more sandy than
Creston proper, where alluvial clay
on ;l clay subsoil predominates. On
the lower benches wo find a black
rich vegetable mould. One great advantage Is '-lie scarcllj ol stone and
gravel; the proportion is liberally estimated as one to live, in other
words -it per cent of the entire valley    represents     Hie     non cultivable
"Very Well," says our P. 0.;
"Hint's O.K. for the soil, hut. how
about marketing the products?" To
come down to the western vernacular
here's where Creston yields the
palm to none ol its compeers;. Situated as it is on tht* direct line of the
Crows* Nest the markets of the
many coal mining communities are,
so to speak, at its outer portals,
consequently il is according to the
time it lakes to come from points
west of thc Kootenay lake ('on
whose eastern extremity It is located) from six to twelve hours ahead,
but In reality 21 hours better olT
for the simple reason thai a shipper
living on the western side of the
lake must gather his fruits for Tuesday on Monday morning in order to
have them aboard the train that tbe
Creston farmer hands his fruit to ihe
express agent   at noon on the   third
day of the week. Not only is this ;l
saving of lime; there is also an economy elTeclod by the shorter hauling
charges to a common point.
Probably some over cautions person may remark: "This is all very
well, but what about thc possibility
of overstocking the market?"   In re
ply to this, cold statistical figures
haw been quoted by unprejudiced
government employees that during
the period that Alberta increased her
| population 343 per cent.; Saskatclu-
| wan, over 100 pci tent., British Columbia increased hers only 150 per
cent., and is even now consuming 50
! per cent ttf her own products. Large

secondly, "tho meat" of the entomologist, hut the 'poison" nt the horticulturist is an appreciably lesser

Again, our sceptical friend may observe, "Oh, yes, but a man must
have considerable captal to wait un-
til he. gets real, substantial returns
from apples." Quito correct, if he
did; but he doesn't. Here are some
of tins means he has of mahing money whilo the orchard is in process ol
development: lie raises raspberries,
strawberries, blackberries, gooseberries, tomatoes, corn, potatoes,
beets, chickens, turkeys, etc., in
fact, be can successfully grow practically everything found in the temperate and some of thc products of
the semi-tropical zone.
As an illustration of what has
been accomplished in the apple department, these figures 1 oil a story.
In 1 fllf) the value was $5,000 against
$55,000 in 1012, in'the early part of:
November of which year the last
carload was shipped out. In addition to apples, there are cherries,
plums, pears, quinces, grapes, melons, not to mention pumpkins that
bump down the scale at'over 100
pounds, or even one cwt.
To sum up the entire situation iu
ordinary, commonplace language we
will enumerate tin* advantages of
Creston: Climate, Ideal; soil, prodigal in its fertility; market far in
excess of simply; social advantages,

societies; four religious denomlaa-

participate, tin* week beginning June
Iff has been selected, following lhe
spring planting, and preceding harvest.
Husiness (men of Spokane already
have contributed $10,000 io a fund
for this year's carnival, and twice
1b.it sum will be raised during the
next sixly days. Charles Ilebbcrd,
president of the Chamber of Com.
mcrce, stales that tbe carnival will
lie one of a series of Pacific Northwestern events that serve io effect a
closer co-operation between communities, adding:
"We want lo make Ibis section lhe
summer playground of America, just
us thO south is the winter playground. With our carnivals we can
accomplish at least two things:
first, we can make the visits of persons from    lhe east mom enjoyable;
and, second, wc can unite Hie people
of our own counlr; in a close boinl
of unity."
Moniieal, March 10.-A talk
which .lame-; Bryco had lasl week
wilh Prosldent Woodrow Wilson re-
veabd the American executive as
friendly in attitude in marked degree toward Canada, tho Hritish ambassador to ihe United States told
the. Canadian club in an address this
afternoon. This led him lo tbo belief, he said, thai the relations between the two countries probably in
lhe future would he more intimate
than before
Continuing his dicussion of the ru-
lure of Canada, Mr. Bryco declared
Hint the politics oi this country and
Great Britain always should be kept
apart in water-tight compartments,
lie concluded hy pointing out that
the fact that the United Slates and
Canada could live next door to one
another without arming against one
another was a lesson against countries providing themselves wilh armaments on a large scalo.

The eleventh day of the deadlock
finds no change in the Liberal position. On the government side there
is a growing .sentiment that the only
way to -save the situation from a
party standpoint is   to drop the bill
entirely. ,
Aversion to going to the counlrj is
stronger! than ever with that section
of the cabinet and of lhe rank and
(llo who belloVo in holdlnjr on to
power at,all costs.
Last night there were renewed
rumors of an early attempt to force
through closure by some arbitrary
tour-dc-fJorce. For this the Liberals
aic prepared and n.ro confident thai
11 cannot succeed.
Closure by brute force, on an issue
upon which 4he opponents of tho bill
actually, represent a majority of the
electors, according to the official lig-
ures of last election, must bring a
sudden dramatic end to this parliament.
The ..strain is beginning to tell severely on Premier Horden and, the
cabinet ministers, and the former is
much more likely to ask lor a dissolution in the near future than to
connive at further arbitrary and unconstitutional parliamentary procedure.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier was .again absent from the house yesterday, being
confined ito his house with a slight
attack of the grippe.
Tlu* veteran Liberal chief has not
saved himself throughoul this strenuous struggle.
boo, is to,fid his factories ot antiquated machinery and to displace extravagant! overhead charges with economic management.! These low tariff
men arc convinced that ouly two
classes of business need protection in
this country.
1.—Those concerns which are mismanaged or are economically unnecessary for the good of the, whole
2.—Combinations which must keep
prices high in order to pay dividends
on the watered stock.
The low tariff men look on these
concerns as malignant growths and
frankly declare tbat the sooner, the
country is rid of them and the money employed by them diverted to
other sources, the better.
Washington, March 18.—Within the
next few days President Wilson will
issue a   proclamation calling    mpon
■ongress to convene an extra session
early,in April, probably April 1    or
i,    lo   revise the    tariff downward.
This agreement was reached after
Chairman Underwood assured the
president' that the ways and means
committee ,could 1)0 prepared to
complete the tariff programme before the Democratic caucus on April
The low tariff men, now in a majority on the committee arc determined that the hill shall be drastic,
without respect to protection theories. If they stand their ground and
carry out their agreement their income tax may be invoked to raise
about $200,000,0(10 annually to place
any deficit caused by reductions in
the tariff. To do tbis, the proposed
tax of ono per cent nn incomes may
bii increased to two per cent or
more, and the tax may be assessed
pro rata, taxing large income proportionately more than small ones.
The low tariff men have agreed
that the country might as well now
as later get real tariff for; revenue
only, and that the business men
must accept an entirely new standard. They are determined lo lay he-
tore the house a bill based upon tho
ordinary belief that competition is a

The) German overture to Great
Britain on tho subject ot the navy
continues to be the center, ot tbe international situation. There is( no
doubt that on tho future of this
overture depends not only the .peace
between Great Britain and, Germany, but probably tho peace of Europe as a whole, fl is tho opinion
of one of the best authorities on
foreign affairs that, at tho present
moment, tho qucsllou ol peace or
war between Russia und Austria
really depi nils on, whether Great
Britain ami Germany can come to
terms over their navies.
I have good reason for believing
thai thc German offer wns made after the most elaborate aud .formal
consultations between the beads ot
tho (Herman government. Both the
German! Emperor and the German
Chancellor have agreed to'lhe statement issued by tho German admiralty before il became public. Tbat
statement, .therefore, embodies n
most important decision of German
high politics. It is a new decision,
and it is the result of a new political
situation. ■ It is the first permanent
nnd striking outcome of the great
Socialist victories in the Reichstag
elect ion of two years ago.
1 have also good reason to believe
that'the Gorman overture .has been
received wilh a most friendly welcome iu tho most influential quarters of thc Hritish government. .Air.
Winston Churchill is quite right in
taking time to consider his reply,
for which the naval estimates will
give an excellent opportunity. But he
has already seized the occasion lo
express his public gratification, and
it is no secret that the British government at large, view this development as a striding result of the
now s pol icy of friendliness that began
with the Ualdane mission to Berlin.
That voyage of Lord Haldano's
seemed at thc time to bear little
fruit, but at the present moment 'it
is only fair to say that the present
overture is largely the result of the
arduous labors undertaken at that
time by Lord I-Taldane of Cloan.
What will the British answer be? It
may he taken for granted there will
be no increase in home-made or home
manned British "Dreadnoughts" during the present year beyond the five
already enumerated hy Mr. Winston
Churchill in his lust statement. The
real heart of the question arises

Baber listed his property on Eleventh avenue east with an agent named Olson, who negotiated a deal with
Rowling whereby the plaintiff conveyed such property for $555 and n

After Beber executed his deed to
Bowling the latter suggested as he
paid over the $555 that the plaintiff
take ti deed for fifteen acres from
tho prior owner of the acreage, one
named Anderson.
Without any solicitor's advice,
Debet acquiesced, He was told that
there was a certificate of encumbrance, which he did wot see. Bbbcr
then listed his fifteen acres in the

Rowland had never covenanted to
give a title, but had only covenanted
to give a deed. Upon plaintiff's

Concreteis the tast
builiin^ material
ABROAD statement—Yet literally true. The aim of man from the
beginning has been to make his building materials as nearly like natural stone as possible. The great labor required to quarry stone led
him to seek various manufactured lubslitutes. The only reason he ever
used wood was that it wa« easiest to gat and most convenient to use.
Wood is no longer easy to, get. Like roost building material, its cost is increasing at an alarming rate.
The cost of concrete is decreasing.   So, from the standpoint of either service or economy, Concrete is the best building material.
Canada's farmers arc using more conciclc, in proportion to their numbers,
