"Walking along the Erickson road, one  oaimofc fail to be atrack by tho signs of  progress which are visible on every side.  Tho many nsat homes scattered on each  sido of the way, each onejset back in the  midst of its own five or ten acre-** of  gp.*jnnd, with the root and other orops  evidence of careful cultivation, and the  *fmifc trees, not now bo loaded as was the  case a few weeks ago, but* still giving  amlplB evjdence^dff^e^p^d^i^eiii^of  tho soil. Theseiftme homes are a credit-  to tho aistci^^undargTthemselves a proof  of the culture and progressireness of the  -*3   fUg*   Vb������������TSAS-   v-  Mr. A.

The house itself is well appointed and in its iutorior arrangements  and furnishings is superior to most of  the houses oscupiod by well-to-do middle  class people in our largo oities with  which we are familiar.  A walk around the cultivated ground  gives 0110 a good idea of the capabilites  of the soil. TBo fluo crop of potatoes is  especially notioonblo, and a small area,  planted with rapberriess, from which a  large crop was gathered this season,  cornea in for our attention. Pumpkins  weighing 80 lbs. and in appearance fully  equal to thoir weight for quality aro a  sight of which our representative- makes  a not* during this investigation as to tho  ou, the show when the picking season  commenced must have been something  to remember.  The CTy for irrigation, which has  been expressed by some people unacquainted with the faotB as to the sub-  irrigation of this district is seen to be  unnecessary A slight scraping away  of the surface with the foot shows the  moisture in the soil clearly up.  The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and the attention of any who are  inclined to under estimate the possibilities here of these lines of oultivation,  should be directed to these ranches so  close to town, where the soil is being literally turned into gold by careful and  scientLfio culture'.

SSiTu, in honor cf Miss Helme,  sister oi Mrs. Hobden, who has been visiting Oreston.  Mrs. Hobden wore a pretty princess  gown of taupe cloth, artistically trimmed  with bine silk and narrow braid, while  Miss Helme looked charming in a. fash-  'dsATbla lingerie frock. The room was  prettily decorated with a profusion of  variegated sweet peas and autumn  leaves, blending harmoniously together,  giving ft pioturesque effect. The first  part of the -sroning was spent in whist,  Mrs." J. Carver and Dr. Henderson being  the fortuna������9 prize winners.

In  spooking of tho probability of an ���������loot-  ion this fall, tho leader of tho Opposition said that whilo all things pointed to  an appeal to the peoplo late this fall,  nothing as yet was 'definite. His oon*  valuation was then out short by tho  moving of tho train and ihe woll-kuown  King's Counsel had to make rapid  stops to avoid being left behind.  Among tho most important root estate  doiils made in Orenton recently was the  ���������ale of an Ideal tou-noro plot' of orchard  land by K. jTltaQoraid to Swan Swanson,  a woalthy railway contractor of Drydon,  Ont.

A quiet wedding took place on the 6th  inst. at the Ohurch of England vicarage,  when Sidney Pool, of Oranbrook, and  Mrs. Jean Fattsrsos, widow of ,the late  Andrew Patterson, of Cranbrook, were  united in the holy bonds of matrimony,  the Rev.

The happy couple  left for Nelson on Wednesday, ^here  they will spend a short honeymoon, after which they will return to Creston to  Mr. P. O. Fowler, honorary secretary  01 iho Crestou Board of "Trade, reports  that he is now beginning to receive many  enquiries from outside parties who want  information about' Oreston. This is no  doubt the result of the advertising done  recently through the publication of five  thousand desoriptivo folders that have  just recently been issued under the auspices of the Board of Trade, as well as  the systematic advertising whioh this  district is getting through the columns of  the Beview. >'  As previously announced the Bev.

HE'S   SOCIALLY OBLIGED TO NO ONE.  ������*TT  Makes It Plain to Mrs. Gnagg That  There'll Be No Little Auto Trip  and That if She Wishes She Can  Lay it to Him���������Who Ever Did  Him a Kindness?  Mrs. Gnagg hating suggested the giv7-  ing of a little automobile party to some  friends by way of repaying soSal obligations, Mr. Gnagg avail? himself of the  opportunity to exude the following comment :  Oh, "a little automobile party,'* hey?  Getting so you like these nifty sounding  phrases, aren't you? "Little automobile  party"���������humph! Some goigeous, that.  Quite a fov.- highfalutin.  Why don't you invite 400 or 500 of  these chippery chappery friends to visit  yoa for a couple of months at your villa  in-the Thousand Islands?  Ot why not have 'em all swoop down  upon you for a week end at your Elizabethan seat in Shropshire?  Or get 'em all to trot over with you  for the grouse season at your shooting  box in Scotland?  Or snag the bunch of 'em for a house  party at your Dole's palace in Vienna?  Or charter a spechil train and take 'em  on a leisurely tour through old Mexico?  Or hire the Corsair or the "North Star  from Mr. Morgan or Mr. Vanderbilt and  cruise the gang around the North Cape ?  There's no use in piking, you know.  'A little automobile party" sounds piet-  ty tinkly and giddy, it is true, hut jou  might as well go through with it while  you're utilizing that hiand of supeiheat-  ed steam and let off a little vapor about  ���������staking youi comic \ aleutiue gang of  cronies to a coaching tour among the  Roman ruins in France or to a riotous  houseboat month on the Thames or  something like that. Why not treat "em  to one of those Berkshire Hills balloon  parties? You ought to hand 'em something new and novel and flossy, you  know. Try and get away from the old  stuff. Y'see, and shoe cleik can stake  his friends to a mountain climbing junket iu the Austrian Tyrol or a three  months' tour of the near aud far east,  but it takes imagination and initiative  to dope out novel numbers and that's  why I'm glad you**.e come to me with  your delightful little hospitable suggestion.  But before we take oft our coats and  begin to woik out some entirely original  and expensive method of entertaining  your assortment of chummies perhaps '  you'll be good enough to elucidate just  what you mean when you say that we  owe any of 'em anything?  How's that? Oh, I don't say that you  did put it in just those words, but you  don't have to fly at me like a giant auk  of the Andes every time I fail to quote  you literally, you know.   You chattered  -���������something about the repayment of social  obligations, didn't you? Well, obligation  means   owing something,     doesn't    it"?  That's  my understanding  of  the word  obligation, anyhow.    Every day of my  life I'm meeting obligations and blamed  heavy ones at "that in connection wiih  the running of this dump, so that I guess  J.   ought   to  have   an elementary   idea  anyhow as to the meaning of the word  obligation.  Well, what''obligations am I supposed  to be-under to this gang of chirpcis that  you're so blithely talking about taking  out on "a little automobile party"?  Hey? How have I placed myself under  obligations to any, of .'em?. Be good  ���������enough if you please to Flctcherizc that  word'obligation in this particular connection and then inform me what you  innke of it, won't you?  ... D'ye mean that I've accompanied you  to the flats of a few of 'em once in a  great while and partaken of what they  called Dutch lunches with my legs under  their groaning mahoganies���������a few hefc  up frankfurters and some rather clammy  potato salad and some beer? Is that ono  of the iteniB that put me under social  obligations to 'em?

It carries painful  suggestions. Thero is more on my mind  just now than divmght. Down in Jersey,  where I live, Job Streeter keeps a place.  It has a cool aud breezy back room.  GjK3 of the hot days last month me snd  a friend of mine, business being slack,  went into Job's back room and, ordered  it sent to us there while we discussed  whether it wasn't better after all to  stick to iced coffee or lemonade or ginger pop. Wo were discussing it when a  big bumblebee came booming in through  a window. While it' was buzsing about  I squirted a little out ol.the. siphon on  a lump of'sugar that* lay on the table.  By and by the bee lit on the moistened  lump, loaded himself and* went booming out of the window.  "That incident of course interrupted  me and my friend, bnt we were getting  back to the argument when that "bumblebee came booming back again after another loaf of that good sugar water.  My friend's a quick thinker.  " 'Wonder how a snoutful or sc of this  would strike this busy improver of each  shining hour?' said he, and he poured  Bome of the highball bottle on the sugar.  "The bee came right along toward the  lump, but as he hovered over it he tacked away quickly and lit on the table.  He dawdled around awhile, though, and  then seeming to make up his mind that  maybe everything was all right he came  up to the sugar, stuck his bill into it  and got one good long sip without pausing for breath. Then he let go of that  sugar as if it bad been a red hot coal  and sped atvay to the window sill, where  he lit and pondered.  " 'Level head,'*'said I. 'No'- tarrying  long at the tanglefoot for his.'  "We sat there thinking it over, taking up again tho propriety cf sticking  to lemonade or iced coffee or ginger  pop, when the bumblebee came buzzing  merrily, almost hilariously, back to the  table and plumped down near the doctored sweet. One look at the lively little  critter settled it. He was altogether too  cocky for there to be any mistake about  it.. He ���������"*vas bit.  "He^didii't' wait a second, but shot his  older in for another on-* right away. He  took it and stepped back, humped, himself a littlo as if he had kind oylgrab-,  bed his breath 'and -then lifted' himself  up on\.his..yfeet the full length, of his legs*  and pranced around like- he owned" the,  whole A of everything'; in eight.

He danced  and pranced and! stepped high'a while  and then sipped .another one. Then ho  went,rollicking over to where a fly was  sitting on the table looking at the bee  and may bo thinking about trying some  of that sugar itself.

Hadn't  the least idea in the world the critter  was back looking for the old stuff again,  he having had his lesson.  1 "So I went in, wet a lump of sugar  with water, and by and by in came Mr.  "Bee just a-tearing. He lit on the sugar,  sniffed around it and then got up off of  it madder than snakes. He sniffed and  dipped around that room like a hen with  her head off. Plain to the eye then as a  new red barn. It was the old stuff for  his. See it out. I turned, the highball  bottle loose on the lump of sugar. The.  bee settled down on it as peaceful as  a lamb. And pretty soon he had his  load.  " 'You're on the toboggan for the b**d,  son!' snid I.    'I see yovir finish!'  "But he didn't sleep it off there this  time.

He was soused to the  guards, ^ >  "-And so it went on. That' bee got to  be a regular ,sitter in Job's place and  the west soak you ever saw. Job  wanted to put him out of the way  more than once, but the boys wouldn't  have it. Not even when one day a uieefc  and tired looking bumblebee not more  than half his size came and hung around  him kind of coaxingly, and he by and  by got furious and pitched in and licked  that little bee unmercifully ond drove  it out did Job and his business right  on the pot, for it never occurred to him  until quite a while afterward that the  timid little bee was maybe the big one's  poor wife come to ask him to go home.  "That "dissolute bee swelled up to be-  twice his natural size, and every once ia  a whiie lately we noticed thac he was  getting wild looking and now and then-  raced around the room like mad, exactly as if something was after him.

My Lady Nicotine is always the same;  My jUaay Gasolene is -frequently different. Which is the more eatitled to be  personified as My Lady depends upon  the "point oj? view. He who thus persoai-  iies his gasolene is certainly frank almost to the point ol'^ being ungallant.  let there are those w?uo boldly say that  gasolene is unmistakably  iieiuiaiiie.  Half a century ago the up to date  family medicine closet contained a  small flat phial in which was a substance highly recommended as a substitute for gcoso oil in relieving that feeling of tightness that comes with a bronchial cold and also as an infallible remedy for chapped hoses and lips. Its com-v  mon name was rock oil, but pharmacists  had Latinized it as petroleum.  In those days the usual illuminast,  except in the larger cities, was thy* homemade tallow dip or the more symmetrical  moulded candle, with here and there a  lamp that burned whale oil or some  other similarly heavy .substance. In a  few reckless households fluid lamps were*  used. They burned a more volatile substance and to have one in the bouse was  regarded as little short of suicidal.  After a while petroleum began to  come into U6e as an ill-aminatiiig oil.  ,It was at first thought to be very dangerous stuff to use, but experience showed that, *st didn't blow up very often  if the  lamp was carefully managed.  A refie'er of petroleum put his product on the market under the jtaaic of  kerosene oil, which designation \ somebody had contrived for him by modifying a Greek word so that it was supposed to mean waxlike or derived from  wax. Later this proprietary designation  ran out and kerosene oil became the  common name for ihe product.  In the early days of oil refinery the  volatile by-product was thrown away.  There seemed to he but one use for the  accumulations of it; workmen in the  small refineries before' the days of Mr*  Rockefeller's activity used to wash their  soiled clothing in it, and it had the  advantage of quickly returning the  .. cleansed articles to tliepa for use.  A* shut washed in this substance and  hung up in the sun ^could be worn in  twenty minutes. A suit of clothes similarly cleansed during the dinner hour  could bfev<-worn home at night. The virtue  of the stuff as a cleanser, especially of,  .garments soiled with grease, became  known and the substance was put on the  market under the name of benzine.  * Later came two other name**- for practically-the same substance���������naphtha and  gasolene".- ^There was supposed to be a  difference between the substances thus,  designated sufficient to warrant the use  of the different names, but the designations naptha and gasolene have come  to be used indiscriminately, aad whethe*-  you call for .'naphtha or-gasolene by the  ounce in a .o^cisg store or for naphtha or  gasolene -by-M;he barrel elsewhere th������  difference is in name'only.'  The bare outlines of the* pedigree of  My Lady Gasolene from the bedrock^up  give but small hint of her "vicissitudes,  which bear an interesting relation to the  world's greatest romance of industry.  'In her present environment what she is  .depends upon how she is treated.  yhe can be as dull as the' heavy yellow  flame of a fat pine knot, as vivacious  as the steel blue scintillations between  ��������� the fingers of hor handmaid the electric  -jump current, and���������if abused���������as dyna-  ,mic as a gypsy woman. scorned.

To speak oi  them would require a volume on the various methods of mixing, compression, ignition and so fortlu  Gasolene will not explode, but it is far  from leluetant as a-combustible. If you  owned a lake of gasolene somewhere ott  in a desert an easy and ssafe way to  drain it would be to stroii down iu the  windward shore, scratch a match and  apply it to the wavelets.  It would not be of any use to touch  the lighted end of your cigar to it, for  the only result would be to put out and  spoil the cigar. A gasolene soaked butt  is even less fragrant after it has been,  dried out than a five .cent Coney Island  Immaduro. If, however, the cigar had  assumed somewhat the shape of a broom  in the process of smoking it, as'cigars  sometimes do, and if in puffing up the  cigar to get a better light one of the  loose folds of the wrapper should develop a flame the flame would ignite the  gasolene. Also if you happened to have  such a thing about you as a point of incandescent metal or a battery tbat  would make a six volt spark that would  answer the pm-pose of setting fire to  the lake.  After it had been fired the lake would  burn briskly with a yellow flame, giving  off clouds of heavy black smoke until it  was drained.  While gasolene is not explosive a mixr-  turo of .gasolene and air in the right proportions produces a vapor that is like  dynamite in explosive energy. But the  proportions must be about right. A  vapor pioduced within the cylinder of  a gasolene motor cannot be exploded  even by the blue hot shower of sparks  from a jump spark firing plug if the  mixture of gasolene and air is far from  the right proportions.  In starting and regulating a gasolene  motor it sometimes is a considerable job  for an expert at it to secure, even with  the best carbureter' a mixture that; will  explode. On the other hand in accidental ways the proper mixture is obtained  when least expected and the results are  se; ions.  The owner of a gisolefie boat thought  that the fluid in hi* tank liad been nearly used up. So he anchored his craft and  went ashore for more gasolene.  While he was away his companion in  the launch took off the cap in the inlet  of the gasolene tank and tried to look  in and st������e how much of the fluid remained. It was dark down there and he  seratehed a match and attempted to  look down by the light of it. On the way  back to the launch the owjier saw her  blow up, and the headless body of his  companion was found in the water a  few days later.  Two men who were going away on a  short cruise filled their gasolene tank  and set an uncorked five-ballon can of  the fluid in the cabin of the boat." They  run lo a point in the upper bay off Bay  Ridge, anchored the boat, locked. -,- the  er.bin and went away to return ,iate in  the following evening and begin their  ciuise.  The, intervening day was warm and  the sun shone hot on the cabin top. The  men were seen" to row out to the .boat  at about 11 o'clock in the evening.  Shortly after they Imd boarded it there  was a pop that was heard all over South  Brooklyn, the boat was burned and the  bodies of tho two men were afterward  ���������found in the bay,' badly mangled. It was  supposed that the heat of the sun on  the cabin top during the day had evaporated just enough of the gasolene from  the uncorked can. into the cabin to produce an explosive mixture and that  when one of the men opened the door  nnd' scratched a match to light the cabin  Jump the mixture let go.

But-the Bible teaches us to sing and  dance, the Pentecostal missionaries said  many times last night. When the Rev.  Mr. Kent came to this idea last night  in the second of three evening sermons  he turned to his wife to ask her tb sing  a hymn ,she had composed some time ago  to prove it. The opening verse of the  hymn runs:  When David was king  He used to dance and sing  In honor of the Lord, day and night ���������  His wife would implore  Him so not to adore,  But he had a perfect right.  ���������When you enter a prayer meeting of i  the Pentecostal Union you are impiessed  ��������� with The general activity.

"Constipation For Three Years"  Had DszztoesS; Bad Breath, Headaches, Bad Coiof,  Pssr Apps&e.  Dr. Hanrlton's Piffs Cured Quickly  Those who doubt if constipation and  chronic stomach trouble ean be cured,  need only read the striking testimony-  of Mrs. B. C. Currean, of Westport.  to know that even if all else had failed  certain cure attends the use of Dr.  Hamilton's Pills.  "For full three years I have suffered  the torture of biliousness, constipation  and stomach disorders. I had terrible  pains in my head. My appetito faded  away, and when I did eat anything it  disagreed and made me very sick for  hours after each meal. Tbe active pains  in my stomach and the dizzy headaches  I had to endure almost set me wild.  Some times attacks came on so severely  that I had to go to bed. I would feel  so worn, depressed and- utterly miserable that for hours I wouldn't *speak to*  my family. My system was poisoned  with .wastes, and ���������������������������������>thing helped me till  I used 33r. Hamilton's Pills. Without  this grand system-cleaning remedy I  would still he sick, but each day brought  me better health and spirits. I was  cured, and made as strong, ruddy and  healthy looking as one could wish, and  will always use and recommend JDr-  Hamilton's Pills.  Thousands who are in an ailing, low  state of health need nothing else but  Dr. Hamilton's Pills.

Tell us the gossip  and the scandal, we need it iu our business.   Bring m your Bibs,  We learn from authoritative sources that the Dominion Government are contemplating the establishment of  several additional experimental farms throughout the West.  From our information it would appear that the question  of mixed farming and crop rotation with a view to enabling  the wheat growers to continue.their present ���������nroduction after the soil has been exhausted by continued cxiltivation of  the same product is the chief reason for the proposal. But  already the western wheat farmer is very well served in the  matter of dominion experimental farms, and it is pertinent  to ask, why should not the great fruit growing industry of  the dominion be assisted by the establishment of experimental fruit and horticultural farms in the Kootenay valley  where the industry is centralised.  That there-is urgent need for such stations everyone at  all acquained with the fruit industry will admit. Our growers are constantly up against problems which can only be  solved by the close application of scientific principles, irrespective of present monetary gains, but which the average  fruit farmer, owing to the necessity for his considering only  the dollar and cent side of the question, is quite unable tor  carry out.  Right here in Creston we have an ideal situation for such  an experimental station. The wide extent of our available  lands and the circumstances of climate and soil having  specially adapted this place as the best..point at which such  a station could be placed.  We remember that A. S. Goodeve, M.P., some time ago  in the course of a speech delivered in Creston, held, out  hopes of a station being established here- Now that the Dominion Government are seriously considering the increasing of their grants for these purposes, it would seem that  the present is a good time to take this matter up with a  view to the claims of this district being adequately represented, In all British Columbia Creston is the best point  in every respect for the establishing of an experiment fruit  and horticultural farm, and if the situation for such is chosen on merit we shall win out, although ia a political pulling match we are hopelessly outclassed by some other districts, whose claims as fruit centers are as bare of foundation as their mountain side fruit ranches are bare of fruit,  Manufacturers of the Celebrated Luke Shore Export. i  BOTTLED  BEER  A SPECIALITY  Pure aiouutaiu Spring Water used iu the Maiiufactur***  of our Be**.

Although wagon roads as means of communication are not to be compared for efficiency with the all conquering railway, yet the construction of good roads which  by opening up the country districts enables farmers and  miners to get their goods to those points whence they can  be easily shipped by rail, must be looked upon as a very  important factor in the general development of the district.  Crcston is recognised as the center of a large district and  we are glad to see that in the near future the construction  of wagon roads radiating from this town is to be vigorously  pushed forward. With a road from Creston to Corn Creek  it is proposed to make a continuation to Summit Creek,  thence following the Dewdney trail oa to the Bayonne mine  Also the fact has been drawn attention to in tnese columns  that Creston will be an important point on the great through  road already decided upon between Vancouver and the  prairie.  The building of these roads will bring trade to our town,  as Creston is the natural supply point for the Bayonne  country, whilst it will also assist in the more rapid development of the mines there.  The merchants, citizens and workers of Cretton will all  benefit directly in proportion as this road building nolicy is  carried out, and we trust that the Bonrd of Trade in conjunction with the member for this district will do everything ia their power to help the .good work ftl������������g,  The Astors made $50,600,000 in 25 years  In Real Estate Investments  Would you like to be a Millionaire ?  , ���������'.'-���������.'

General Situation
Oreston is a souiii but rapidly growing town,
situated in the heart of the Koofcenays, about 68
mites -west of Cronbrook. on tho Crows' Nest
extension of the Ouadian Pacific Railway. It is
the premier fruit growing center of the famous
Kootenoy fruit lauds, the pride of British Columbia. *
Early Success to>ith Fruit
It is some years shies the pioneers ol the fruit
industry in Oreston planted the first trees in au
experimental fashion, with such success thac the
attention of the settlers began to be exclusively
given to the vast fruit growing possibilities of the
Rapid'Progress of To%n ana District
Iu the last tvro short years the town has more '
than trebled its population, an up-to-date weekly
paper has been started, Sour churches, a bank,
two -arsi-class hotels, a number of stores and '
many residences have been.* erected. Streets have
been graded and a waterworks system, capable of
supplying ten thousand people, has been installed,
whilst the matter of incorporation has become a
burning question.
Special Factors helping to its Success
Creston is built in the valley of the Kootenay
river, which valley at this point is about twelve ,
i-ailos wide, and is protected from the north winds
by Goat mountain and the supporting range,
whilst its southern aspect- ensures the maximum,
of sunshine. It is served by two railways, the
Crows' Nest branch of the Canadian Pacific Bail-
way and a branch of the Great Northern Railway, leaving the main line at Bonners Ferry, thus
, possessing ample means of communication. Tbe
town lies midway between and about quarter of
a mile from each of the two* stations.
'Proximity to Best ^Markets
Its proximity to the Crows' Nest mining dis-'
trict and to the great and constantly expanding
market of the prairie ensures an ever growing
' field for the sale of the products of its orchards
and market gardens. These are the sight of tlio
neighbourhood.' Here can be seen growing appies,
weighings twenty-two ounces, onions, weighing
two-and-lialf pounds, and strawberries, measuring three-and-half inches "in circumference, and
weighing four ounces; and the present is only a
foretaste of what will be Eeen when all the land
at present uncultivated is taken up by fruit
'Prizes toon for Quality against Alt Comers
Already the products of Crestou have an International reputation for "quality and flavor, having
captured first prizes at the Spokane National
Apple Show in December,- 1908, and many first
��� prizes at various local frnit and vegetable exhibitions, including a clean sweep of first prizes at
the Garden Produce and Jmiit Show, held at
Cranbrook, on September 14th and 15th, 1909.

to show how fruit and garden products nourish;
and to prove the commercial possibilities of the'
iudustry in this district, Mr. O. J." Wigen, whose
fruit farm is sear D-ock Creek.* in the-Creston
district, and who has devoted most of his time to
growing strawberries, of which ho had rather
mora,than three acres-under cultivation, during
one season realized over $4,000 from the sale of
his berries. .Allowing 8360 for cultivation of the,
ground,.$500 for the .boxes, and if500 for picking,'
.these three acres produced nett to the owner,
'$2,650, or over $880 per acre.   Mr. S.- Brooks, a*
< local rancher, about one mile from Creston station, has cleared over $1,000 from a single acre of
tomatoes, oucumbers and  cantaloupe. -   Young
tomato, plants do uot need to he -grown under
glass iu the Croston district;.
The results from orchards are even more satisfactory.
Largest circa of Fruit Lands in B.C.
The Oreston district comprises about 40,000
aores-���the largest continuous area of fruit lands
in British Columbia���also the far famed Kootenay
Flats, which will shortly be reclamed, adding a
further 80,000 acres of tho finest alluvial land to
-   to tho previous-total.
Expert Opinion
The soil and ciiniafce are pronounced hy provincial fruit expert Thomas Cunningham, aud other
famous experts to be unequalled in the province.
Good Wagon Roads
There are many good wagon roads out of Ores-
ton. There is a good highway all the way from
Creston to Spokane, via Port Hill, also from
Crestc.T' to Cranbrook, via Kitchener. Good roads
are alw> jtound to Duck Creek and various other
parts of the district, as well as through the famous Kootenay Fiats. Creston io also the objective
poiut for th�� Government trunk road that will be
built immediately from Vancouver to Alberta.
,   -       Saw and Planing ^Mills
There are three thoroughly equipped saw andv
planing mills at CreBton, which can furnish all
kinds of lumber for building purposes for CreBton
for many years to come.
v* ' '
*" Mining at Creston
The Alice mine, only three miles from CreBton,
employs quite a number of men, and there is a
possibility of' this mine developing into an important working mine in'the near future.'
The Creston district is admirably suited for
dairying purposes. The Oreston Dairy Co., whioh
milks 100 cows, Supplies milk to many of the
towns along the Crows' Nest Pass extension of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, besides furnishing
milk to the town of Creston.
Scenery and Location for Homes;
Sport? fishing and Hunting
Creston is famous for its beautiful scenery,
both landscape and mountainous; and thus, with
an ideal climate and easy access to the outside
world, it presents many advantages as a looation
for homes. The finest shooting grounds and fishing streams are within a radius of fire miles
from the town.
' Climate
s The climate of Oreston is the very mildest in
the interior of B.C., the district being noted for
its early spring weather and long falls, the Indian
summer weather generally extending to Christmas. The temperature in winter is rarely below
Winter killed frnit trees are -unknown. The
Creston fruit trees passed unscathed through the
severe weather of winter 1808 to 1909, whilsfe
��� trees in other districts in B.C. were more or less
severely damaged.
Rainfall and Freedom from Frosts  **"
The annual rainfall is about 80 inches, providing
ample moisture without irrigation.
The district is   absolutely free from summer
frOstS. > .  3'~ ;j. ���    ".
Tha Bottom land being 200 feet lower than the
benches creates a natural sir drainage through
the valley, and any frost or. fog that may , settle
on the lo<v land leaves the benches free.
First-class land in all stages, both wild and *
partially and fully cultivated, can be obtained
at reasonabe prices.
'Right Vp-to-Date
The town is up-to-date in every respect, with.
' schools- a telephone syBtem, and every social organization; and in its rapid growth .the town
motto,   '.'Advance  Oreston,"  is boing literally*

Carefully, very carefully, ssoo observed  tSse weight. It was not just exsuct. Taking a tiny file dh-e rubbed t'iie coin very  gently. Then eeh weighed it again. l*iu-  oilly tae seaia balanced.

It is a muddy, uninteresting bit of water but holds some  big fish, aud the Ouae Angling Preservation Society, wanting to replennh  their river with carp, set about dra-jj'ii'j  it.  The owner of the pond, B. Baanufer,  and others threw a leaded cork topped  net across the pond on one side. The  weighted net stuck several times in the  mud at the bottom of the pops!. The  Wafers released it, but at last it got so  firmly ettibtxiueu audi its weight so increased by the fiah it enclosed that it  was impossible to move it, and like the  Biblical fishers of old the net, or rather  the pulling rope, broke.  Another was soon fastened on. but  the net was bo heavily laden with mud  and a seething mas8 of fish in the middle tbat nothing moved it, so the     biff  ���������������������<���������������������   utn.    *u   uo  i-ujimiwj   nuu, &JTUU{f ill.   io  the bank by the men wading.

Changeless Arctic temples of - ice  amid the icy deserts of Greenland  were found by the survivors of the ill-  fated Erichsen expedition to the North  Pole. A crystal palace of superhuman  architecture vaster than,a dozen cathedrals and Egyptian temple's, respend-  ent with jewels and endless decorations of ice, is Jescribed.  Created by nature ih a forbidding  wilderness, it frightened and awed the  explorers. Tlie dreams of poets, and  the, fancies of epic -bards were surpassed by this vision of colossal loveliness, which the painter Achton Fries,  a member of the expedition, endeavored to carry away for the benefit of  the dwellers in civilization.  More than a mile in length, the lofty  nave of this temple was pierced at  intervals with windows through which  the gleaming sun rays sparkled on  columns and" cubes and immense  clusters of stalactite.-' like pendent  jewels. Through the centre of the ice  palace flowed a stream of water whose  occasional ripple and splashing fail  broke the majestic silence.  Par north it is possible that ice palaces and temples should endure without change longer than human structures of stone. The carcasses of prehistoric monsters have remained inviolate in Arctic tombs for thousands  of years, while granite pyramids- have  worn away and Babylonian civilization has been buried deep in the earth.  ��������� From the Chicago Tribune.  NOT DECAYING.  (Scchester Post-OExpress.)  But when it comes to a question of  war, the Briton's blood boils. He prepares to fight with the utmost deliberation. He has often a hard struggle before he wins, Jjwt he is rarely beaten.  Tho American colonists* threw off his  "yoke, but even tho great Napoleon could  not vanquish J'perfide Albion." When  the Boers revolted, many persons believed-England would be defeated. But the  dogged Saxon spirit prevailed. The  Briton is, indeed, slow, but he is "hard  to heat." He never travels too fast, but  in the fierce rivalry of nations he holds  his own. England may be declining, but  she is still strong. And Mr. Wells is  not exactly fitted tojplay the part of  Jeremiah and to predict his country's  downfall.  BETTER THAN SPANKING.  Spanking does not , cure children of  bod-wetting.

Over a week  ago, ranchers and their employees began  digging acequias across the river bed -in  order to reach the water and convey it  to their land.  The Rio Grande now flows in only one  small stream, but as yet there is sufficient current to make it adequate for irrigation purposes where ditches are properly constructed.

Such prophets and  prophecies have all been proved erroneous and the Mill-srites and their kin  have all been laughed out of serious  consideration; Science has taught us  better, and yet science which seeks always new facts and revised reasoning  is now teaching us that our faith in ths  safety of the solar system is misplaced.

Mrs.* Emma Michels, 690 Osgood  street, Chicago, sat, her head in her  hand; '^hese thoughts were surging  back ana forth pendulum like through  her brain.  "No "matter, what you do, or try to  do, no matter what tears you shed,"  she mused, "what resolutions you  make���������and keep���������nothing can ever  change the past���������nothing can alter  the thing that is done."  "~Qo������ a headache, muvver?" a little  gtrl tugged at her dress.  "No, dear: run away. Don't bother  mother."  For all time, for all eternity, the  thing is recorded in the records, she  was thinking.  Back through a span of years���������15  years���������she ^ ranged, every step a  wrench of'the heart. Back to that  time when she had been too trustful,  too ignorant, too unlearned of the  world.  Then the years that followed���������the  ficrht back to' self-respect and honorable life'���������^bitter struggle, but a strug--  gle won.  For had not love come to her���������honorable love, a husband to whom, sobbing, she told ihe story, and who,  hearing, forgave?  His words she remembered: "You  have put that all behind you.*You  will be judjred by the present and  the future. What is eone, is gone. We  will  forget together."  And she had believed him. But it  was wrong, all. wrong. After all these  years, -she had found it was wrong.  For some people can forget, an"d  some cannot. Perhaps even good  Christian people do not realize how  cruel thev can be���������or how hard and  pitiless things words are. Probably  her husband's estranged relatives did  not realize.  "We know all about you now, you  The little boy, crying "silently oa,  the floor, brought her back to the  present. The children���������it was a new  thought.

There could be no flight  to new cities, new neighborhoods, as,  before. , 5  And in one terrible - quarter of an  hour she made her resolution. And  having settled things she smiled,  and caught up the children, her little  boy and girl, and kissed them again*  and again.  Then she took them up to the nursery, crooning an old lullaby. She-  put fresh .white spotless linen on the  beds. She^got new shiny "nighties"  out for the boy and the girl. She  heard them say then* prayers. She  tucked them into bed. She" arranged  and decorated the room as though for  a gala day. J  She sat awhile. Then she went to  the bureau, and drew out a necklace  of pearls���������her husband's wadding  present to her. She hung these about  the little girl's neck. Then she went  to the dining room table; ond got -  some flowers and/ hung these arojnd  thp pillows.
