Messrs. H. A. Mitchell  and J. E. Martin, of Red Deer, Alta.,  this week purchased twenty acres each  of fruit land from Robt. Long. The  land is adjacent to the Long Ranch  upon the Ericksou road and is a good  buy.  In conversation with Mr. Mitchell,  we learned that many farmers around  the district he hails from would take de.  We are here primarily to make a million  and 'incidentally to advertise the resources of the town and district.   It  cisive step^of migrating to this country  did they but feel assured that the "B.C.  craze" was not all buncombe.

Besides the resolutions adopted by  Oreston Board of Trade that are to be  placed before the Associated Board on  the 27th insi., at Trail, there were other  resolutions of a local nature that were  endorsed by the members present. To  our mind the principal one was that referring to the Matter of connecting the  north and south bides of the to\yn, now  villi u������p Ojr   bixo AeMvroj*     ������������v    vhq   ^uwoiiuu  fciiaie both pOtiiOiiS Oi the   tOWil  Ui'd  hl-  creaaing in population, dwellings and  business houses, and the prevailing conditions for journeying between' the two  aides are, to say the least, disgraceful.  St is a difficult matter for persons tray-  oiling through the townaite by rail to  realize the -wonderful growth of our  town during the past year, and we have  often thought that some of tho big^ bugs  of the O.P.R. have travelled through  lately, incognito, and they, too, have  failed to grasp the progress that is be*  lag and boa been made.   We wonder,  therefore, how long it will be before the  C.P.R. wakes op to the faet that the  people of this town will no longer tolerate the existence of the present rail*  way crossing.   In tho first place it is  dangerous, dangerous in a marked degree.   Two thirds of our school children  daily ofoss the track to and fro from  Hohool, audit nohappensthoy ore leaving  Softool Just about the time the east and  west trains are due.   We greatly fear  that the railway company  will  not  move itself in tho matter until one or  two fatalities are recorded.   We  are  pleased to see that our local Board of  Trado has placed itself on record by  bringing tho matter before the proper  othciftla,   What will bo the ultimate re-  ���������nits wo cannot   conjecture.   Situated  poonliarily, tho western portion of tho  town rises by a sharp Incline to tho railway crossing, and tho construction of a  bridge across tho track would be both  unsightly and costly.   It would oppenr  that the possible solution will be found  in the boxing of a subway, another costly, expenditure,  but tho O.P B.  will  nave to accomplish one or the other, nt  no distant date.  our province, and that his object of coming here at the present time "was to see  the country at its worst. Ee had followed the advice of the "Review" to  come and sc������ Crestoa and the result is  that he and Mr. Martin will become  good live citizens, and we hope successful horticulturists.  SnggViTjo. of the climatic conditions  Mr. Mitchell said that the northwest  farmers could scarcely; yet- appreciate  the difference between the winters of  the Kootenay and the prairie but he had  sssa and fexttiie diSexence and. his many  Mends would learn from him.  Mr. Mitchell is a wide awake business  man who will be a decided acquisition  to our town, and we hope that-' as a result of his studies whilst among us that  many more of his friends from the  wheat belt will take council from his  advise to cast in their lot with the  Creston fruit growing industry.  A masquerade Bail at Port Hill drew  a large crowd-on Saturday night. About  two dozen '.Crestpnites made 'the trip  and had a high/old time. The hall Was  much too small to accomodate tha assembled 'dances and the Indies consequently;  got their toes trodden on pretty ofteii.  One little .lady -'whs hoaid to l-emai-k  chap she would stay with it as long as  she had a tod..'left, to waltz on. The  night was -a capita 1 one for sleighing,-  and the lone- trip was greatly eujoyed.  Dancing commenced tit liiuo and coil-  eluded at seven the next lhornihgi';'-;We  uhdei'stand that another masqiierade  will be held at Port Hill on February.  13th. ; //''���������'.:--  To Mr. Martin Petvrson, the -thanks of  the Creston 'hoy a are due. During the  interval a swell little vechercho supper  was prepared in his store, and we can  vouch for justice beinc done to it and  the appreciation.  The ball was ..arranged by Messrs.  G^o.yPrice and Arelue Durthick, and to  hem all honor. Mr. Jno. Yan Net ten  was a prince of floor managers. When  next Port Hiii opens out we want to join  the crowd.

When you see a man whispering to a  "Newsy" on the train, it is pretty safe  betting he is after a Calgary Eyeopener.  When the sun rose on Thursday morning the Chinese Now Year began, and  the first decade of "Sun Hung" was  ushered in by the local chinks. There  were no salvos of firecrackers or loud rejoicings ; just a few pipes smoked, noodles chewed, sam-suey sipped, and here  and there a quiet fantan game in honor  of Tien Wang (Prince of Heaven).  A disgraceful scene was witnessed on  Wednesday night at tho Opera House.  The " Hard Times " Ball of the Aome  Quadrille Olub was in progress, when a  number of hoodlums endeavored to  break up tho harmony. It would serve  these mon right if wo mentioned their  names in this item. Ladies arriving nt  the dauco heard a volley of swear words,  and had tho mortification of witnessing  two mon engaged in a fight in tho  corridor. The presideut of the club  (Mr. J. Hartley) wasvioiouBly attaoked  fit his post by one of tho gang, and n  free fight ensued. The Roviow is most  emphatic in its views whan it says that  the knawn mombers of tho gaug should  in future bo OHtracisod from all social  functions, ' until they individually  apologize for their iiiipcoudnct.  Brock Moran, of the Creston Hotel,  will shortly take a holiday.    It is sure j  coming to Brock, and the Review hopes I j  he. will have the time of his life.
