A l^spuiar Appointment  (Cranbrook "Herald) ,  James Bares has been notified that he  is about to be appointed Deputy Game  Warden for this district. This is excellent news for the people, as no one could  fill the bill any better than Mr. Bates.  A thorough sportsman himself. Mr.  Bates will take au interest in ihe work  that few other men would. Those who  have been in the habit of shootilig or  fishing out of season would better be  very careful as the eagle eye of Mr. Bates  and the heavy hand of the law 'will be  upon them without mercy. The people  are to be congratulated on the selection  of a game warden made by the government, as Mr. Bates-kacws this part of  'the*coimtry thorougnly and'tho habits  of the fish and game which it contains.

You sssy hs?o a district; where the climate ia all that can be desired, where  evesy kind'������? fruit and vegetable ,cau be  produced. < Tou may eyen possess a district that is famous for the quality of its  productions, and yet it may be years before the place is as successful, and the  ranchers as prosperous as they ought to  be.     ' . -- '  . In the cultivation, of land lies a very  large factor making for'the success or  otherwise of ������ district ha^dn^ tho ^rsat-  est possibilities. Old fashioned methods  whilst they may be thorough and productive are cumbersome and costly, and  by scarcity of band labor ,less laud is  cultivated, and as a consequence less  value is produced than would be if up-  to-date methods of cultivation, were  adopted. Some time ago travellers were  in this town selling potatoes, and what  is mere, they sold lets of them, Ws mentioned in our edition of that date this  fact, and it seems to us entirely superfluous to bring potatoes and onions to  Creston. Onions grown here last year  were equal to the best produced iu the  world. Creston can produce potatoes as  good as any grown anywhere, and with  VUO JAICUWOV OXf 1UUOU JUA IHYUl   UL     V/AC01AJJL1  it is a pity that more is not made of this  highly productive tuber. Some people  don't grow potatoes on account of the  cost of planting, digging, bagging, etc.,  and yet if modern methods are employed  potatoes cats be grown and harvested at  a price that will yield a very handsome  profiit per acre. There is no harder  work than digging potatoes by hand,  and a potato digging machine will be  a- profitable investment, even where  there is less than an acre to be dug up.  In cases ^hera Sve or sis acres ars being  grown a potato harvester which digs,  cleans and elevates the potatoes, is the  money saver,. We cite this one instance  of saving in both money and labor, and  as time goes on we shall deal further  with the question of labor saving implements, which means less labor to our  farmers, more land cultivated, more  money.made out of farming and an increases prosperity for our district, the  result of up-to-date cultivation and the  consequent enhanced reputation of our  More LuiiBiber Wanted  .

If the crop is only an  average one, the demand for lumber  this fall will be the largest since 1806.

Acting  on the xuiuutes.of the previous, meeting,  the arrangements to raise further capital'"whs considered. The capital is  subscribed for the purpose of installing  a 5300 drop switchboard, a new metallic  circuit, private lines to those who wane  them, and a constant 16 hour service  each day including Sundays and holidays. A central office with directors'  board room will be constructed, and the  company will employ a live man who  will not only bo ablo to, attend to the  switchboard, but also will* have tho  necessary ability to attend to tho repairs  and keep the line always first olais. .  * By this, arrangement tho people of  Oreston will have a splendid telephone  system, and without doubt <6ne of the  finest in the province. In a > few weeks  we ahall be ablo to talk with Spokane,  the towns on tho Paoiflo const, and tho  towns and oitios of Alberta.

This case has caused  considerable interest, and the result will  be keenly awaited. Briefly tho foots  are as follows:  Rowlands went to the residence of  Lord Sholto Douglas during the letter's  absence, end as he -arrived there in a  state of intoxication, his presence was  very unwelcome* to Lady Douglas.  Later Lord Douglaft returned from a  trip to the hills, where he had bees  hunting grouse, and upon aim finding  Rowlands in his drawing room, he requested him to remove himself immediately. This, Rowlands'refused to-do,  and be rushed ripon Douglas and closed  with him. . The defence is -that the  shooting was all an accident, and it is  alleged that Lord Douglao entered the  room, after his trip into the hills, -witch,  a gun in his hands.  Rowlands, who receiyed theehet la  the neck, was seriously ill tor a sew days.  He is an ex-British soldier, and together  with his wife occupies a small ranch outside the town limits.
