K. Madiii, organizer of the "Chosen Friends," is about to organize a lodge  of the order in Creston. This order is  fraternal and beneficial and both ladies  and gentlemen are eligible for membership. Mr. Madill has organized lodges  iu nearly every town, in B.C. from the  coast to as far east as Cranbrook, and it  is his intention to instal a lodge in evesj  town of fair size in the province, so that  people who join and travel from one  place to another will be able to find  friends. The society gives insurance  and benefits to both sexes on equal  terms, and it is making great progress,  both financially and in membership.  Mr. Madill has visited the Okanagan  and speaks very highly of that district,  but thinks the people in and around  Creston have better advantages and  brighter prospects lor the ft-tore.

The mixing of these two teams has been  eagerly looked for by the local sports  for some weeks. Th9 Creston team has  been training assiduously during the  pasc week, and a keen straggle may be  looked for. It is known that the teams  raised between the combined forces of  Pure Hiii aud the T.O.

This does not include the lands at present subject to flood from the summer  rise in the Kootenay. This flooded lnnd  will, no doubt, bo at least partially reclaimed, before many years.

Tho Eckardts, a troupe of high-class  musicians and Swiss hand bell - ringers,  gave an entertainment in the Opera  House on Thursday evening, before one  of the largest audiences ever seen iu  Crestou, who listened with rapt attention tiiroughonfc the whole of the evening to the various items in the program,  which was a unique and varied one.  This troupe has already established a  great reputation as entertainers, which  reputation they fnily sustained last  evening. The music produced on the  Sv?iss bells, alniuina'2i chimes, musical  glasses and marimbaphone, the latter an  instrument, which combines the xmisic  of three instruments in one, drew forth  loud and prolonged applause. There  were also several items of a humorous  character included in the programme,  provided by G. C. Eckardt, whose witticisms kept the audience in a continual  round of laughter, daring tho - time he  occupied the stage. This gentleman, as  well as being on excremeiy clever musician, is also a humorist of no mean  ability. As a whole the entertainment  was of an excellent character and should  attract bumper audiences at every place  they visit. -   ���������  The entertainment was given under  the auspices of the local K. of P.,; the  occasion being the anniversary of the  "Wild Rose" Lodge, No. 39, who are to  be congratulated on introducing such a  talented company of artistes to a Creston  audience.

There are some people herein. Creston  who look upon this paper as a philanthropic institution.   They iwould  like  *os to keep up the good advertising program, but there.is never, from some of  them, any talk of digging up a dollar:or;  two to keep the wheels running.   They  imagine somehow that this paper is fed}  .  from heaven or by the B.C. Government,  tion of  but we can assure them they have another think combing.   We are trying to  keep up a gaod lick, andi it is up to the  people to see that the paper is fed materially.   We are not complaining,   We  earn every bean we get and many we  don't get.   We have had  a tough old  winter keeping up the glad shout for the  benefit of this section, and we  do not  . therefore think it just to us that some of  our most valued advertisers should withdraw their patronage at a critical time  in our young lives.   We recommend  "One of the greatest causes of melancholy in the present age is the newspaper. Remove the newspaper from  your home and you remove one of the  greatest causes of melancholy, etc."  These rather surprising words were  spoken by Rev. W. H. Hincks, pastor  of Parkdale Methodist Church, a few  nights ago, according to an evening  newspaper's report of his sermon.  Tha public generally, as vvell ks those  engaged in publishing newspapers, will  not be inclined to take Rev, Mr. Hiucks  seriously, because in ratio to their seriousness they become absurd.  His remarkB are on a par with some of  those "wise" ones who openly assert  they can do without newspaper advertising. In both cases the public have to  **be shown."

It is most essential that-the  Cosmopolitan    nature   of    our   rising  generation   should   have   the sterling  -seeds of patriotism inculcated, and as it  now a statute law that every school in  the province should have a flag pole in  its playground or precincts, from which  the Union Jack must daily float, we  respectfully draw the matter to the attention of our school trustees.

His  business hero is to introduce tho famous  old-time Le Roi beer, that has stood the  test of many years. Speaking of tho  conditions at Rossland, Mr. Scott, who  is a former president and financial secretary of the Rossland Miners' Union,  and at present timo president of tho  Roealand Conservative Association, said  that owing to tho shut down of the Le  Roi mino, business, from a working  man's point of view, is extremely bad.  There aro now about 250 men laid off at  this mine, tho majority of whom have  left town principally for northern towns  and camps. There are now about 600  men working in the mines ndjr ent to  Rossland, namely, the War Eagle, Genre Star, and Le Roi No. 3, and two or  three smaller properties in the south  bolt. The Le Roi is expected to open up  and resume active work in the very near  future, when normal conditions will  again prevail in Rossland.  Speaking of the Rossland Conservative  Association be B������id that it was in splen  did shape, both numerically and finanoi  ally, and that tho majority of the mem,  bero woro composed  of   tho working  miners.

The first step in  forestry. is the preservation ot forests  slready existing, and as far as Canada  ���������ea6t and weet alike���������is concerned,  that means the keeping out of flres.  Something in this direction has already  heen done ia Canada, but much remains  tc be dine. \  ���������   Forest   flres in   the  Rookies,   their  effects and means of preventing them  ,.fnr\T*JTi It ��������������� **  Assistant Inspector of Dominion Foiesfc  Reserves, in the December issue of the  Canadian Forestry Journal. His ar-  tiolo gives the result of investigations  made by him daring the season of 190G  in the Crows' Nest district of Southern  Alberta, more accurately defined as  the valley of the middle fork of the Old  Man" river between the Livingstone  range and the western boundary of  Alberto.  Originally this whole region was  heavily timbered, so the reports of explorers and other early visitors to the  district say, with the exception of a  small area (eighteen square miles in extent) situated above timber line. " So  numerous and so disastrous have been  the fires following in the wake of trav  ellers, settlors and railways," Mr. McMillan writes, " that at present, of tne  ������ r������J ������^ f������ *1  312 square   miles  forest,  only 83 square miles remain." Moreover, the timber which is easiest to get  at is always the first destroyed, and  what is left if situated at high levels  and in other places where it hard to get  at.  Not only has the timber originally on  the land been destroyed, but in some  cases all possibility of producing, wifch-  ouu going to jvh onorixiou**. oxpeuse for  artificial planting, moro timber (or anything else) on the land has been taken  away. In this Crows' Nest valley alone  there are, out of the 212 square miles  of its total area, 85 square miles of  such land, 0**'Dri'������*������*n'w f*nvf*v(*r\ bv ������>  heavy forest of fir, it is..now but a " poor  gravelly prairie, unfit for agriculture  and of very little use for grazing." One  fire alone does not usually havo this  effect, but a second or third fire rarely  fails to kill all the i'orf st reproduction  (i.e., tho little trees) to destroy *he remaining seed trees, to burn off the upper layer of soil, and leave a desolate  waste, such as the country "just spoken  of.  On portions *of this ai*ea nature has  made a good start toward making a new  forest. Sixty square miles of the area  are covered by a dense growth of young  trees, the land so covered lying too high  on the hillsides and being too rough,  stony aud gravelly to be fit for agricul  ture or valuable for grazing. All that  this area requires in order that it may  again be covered with dense forests, is  protection from fire.  ThuB fire protection is obviously the  great need of the region, and the Department of the Interior, through its  Forestry branch, is devising means to  this end. So far, the measures used for  the protection of forests -from fire in  Canada, have consisted of the patrol of  the forests by rangers,, who constantly  for fires (often discovering and extinguishing in their beginnings fires which,  neglected, would burn over miles of  territory), fight fires and warn campers  and travellers against the careless use  of fire. This patrol will in all probability  form the basis of the system of protection even tunlly put in operation, supplemented by tho visa of "look-outs" and  thg telephone.  Tho Cranbrook Co-operative Store  thanks the people of Creston for their  orders. "We are in the furniture business with the finest lines of fancy and  domestic furniture. Ask your Oreston  friends what they think of our goods,  and ask them how the prices strike  them.
