'j^-l-j.ivjLar'Ji*l.'g*v*������-*  I ULU������itl������HJIW  Lumber  Miwsy������|  The question of having a county court  register at Creston was discussed at  length at the hist meeting of the Board  of Trade. It seems tbat at present-there  in a county cuurl reEjiultti- nud comity  court houso at \Trout Lake Oity, but  there is not sufficient legal busiuess there  to warrant a judge holding court; whilo  at Creston, things are just the reverse.  This distriot has made such gignntio  strides during tho past twelve mouths',  that a correspondingly amount of litigation has ncoummutated, nud at present  litigants are compelled to go all ,tho.Way  to Nelson to attend court.  It is stated on positive authority that  His Honor .Tiidgo Forin is very strongly  in sympathy with this movomout and  thnt arrangements be made for. the immediate establishment of a oounty court  registry at Oreston, when a very groat  publio want will bo filled.  The Board of Trado has wired a strong  resolution to J. H. Sohofleld, M P.P.,  ualcing his co-operation in this matter;  and tho gonqral publio nt Oroston fool  that they aro only asking whnt is justly  duo thom, whon they are praising thoir  claims for tho immediate oonstltatron.,4f  a county Court horo.  ",THE PRIVATE SECRETARY "TO  BE PB.ESEETE& OlH  FEBRUARY 13  The Creston Amateur Dramatic Club  wish to announce that the well-known  three-net farcical comedy, entitled "The  Private Secretary," will be presented on  Saturday, February 12th next, under  the management of Mr. Robt. O'B. Fitz-  Gerald, in the Opera Houae. *  The local club, as most of us know,  made their first bow to' the public last  winter, in the play "Arabian Nights,"  and sack was the encouragement received then, that they have now embarked  on a much harder undertaking, and are  presenting a play which.is considered  to be one of the best farcical comedies  ever written. It is seldom, tackled by  amateurs, unless they have had considerable experience behind the footlights.  However, the club have been, and are  rehearsing hard, three or four times a'  week, and hope to give their audience on  the 12fch February, two and a half hours  almost continuous,merriment.  The different funny characters and  the comical situations in which they  find themselves placed are sufficient to  keep the average playgoer in a roar of  laughter.  For the benefit o������ those who perhaps  have not heard, it may be as well to  mention that ������0 per cent, of the receipts  for this performance will be given to the  Board of Trade to help advertise our district', or anything'they man deem necessary ; the balance going to the club for  cost of advertising, costumes, etc.  Now, considering that the "Arabian  Nights" was the club's  first -attempt,  there was a pretty fair house; but it is  sincerely hoped   that,- our  citizens and  rinchers, one- and all,  will make it a  point to*patrohize this show.   It is for a  good object and you wili be giving yourselves a really enjoyable evening, and'at  the same time assist-in providing funds  for an organization,   which has for its  main eject "Progress of Orestonf." There  is another reason why everyone who is'-  able to, should make it their, business or  pleasurelo attend,*- arid' that, is,   that - a  poor house generally rijeans poor acting;  but when a bunch of local citizens, "trying then* hardest   to make themselves  ridiculous or otherwise, are greeted with  the sight of a full lipase crowded with  their friends and  acquaintances, they  naturally feel complimented, and therefore, inspired to    further   and   more  strenuous    efforts    to .please.       So,  come one and all.   The price of admission will only be 50c, and 75c. for a reserved seat, so that the Bhow may be iu  reach of all. r >  Ranohers, bring in your wiveB and  families, and give them a treat. Support  a local enterprise rather than an outside  ouo,���������and above all, como and have a  good laugh at your friends. An orchestra will rendor musical selections be  tween the acts.

We recognize that on many occasions  the duty must bo rather an onerous one,  aud that there are times whon it would  bo much easier and more convenient, for  a number of reasons, to stay away, botb  from the ohoir practices and the Church  services,    ���������  It is now my pleasing dnty,*both as  representing the Ladies' Auxiliary and  the congregation at lnrge to present you  with this gift, as tangible ovidonoe that  we nre not merely thanking you as a  matter of formal courtesy, but because  we have a lively sense of the obligations  under whioh yon hnvo placed us,  After the testimonial had boon rend by  Mrs. W.'K.

The white fur coats come trimmed, with  white fox or lynx. Ermine with or without.' the tails is fashionable again this  winter for evening coats, and a new  fashion advocates the dark fur lapels,  collars ar.d cuffs. The dark and white  furs arc in sharp and effective contract,  but when the white is the more becoming it should be chosen for trimming in  preference. ���������   A  Velvet and salin   evening  wraps   are  t his season most attractive in color and  destsrn.     They  are  sometimes   trimmed  with   fur ami sometimes are plain and  lined with fur.    The color that is the  most becoming is chosen, and there are  colors and shades in such infinite variety that there would seem to'be no exr.  euse for any woman not choosing a color in which she will look her very best"  There are blues, pinks and yellows, acvV  eistl shades of white, and also black, and  the   fur can  bo  of the most  becoming  color also.   An all; black coat is a practical investment and it can be enlivened  by white fur if sable is not becoming;  but the cost of such a coat carried out  to perfection'would Im*. as much as two  others,  one   of  light -brocade   or   satin  suitable for merely an opera wrap and a  cloth or velvet of dark color on n. more  practical and iitieful order,    .So it is as  well  to stop and count tlie  cost most  carefully before giving the unlimited order for the one and only garment that  in so alluring in its beauty.  Thin Fabrics Fur Lined.  Pur lined evening wraps are most luxurious, but sometimes complaints nro  made that the fur worn over velvet or  even satin is not satisfactory. There  arc now most attractive pitches in different weights and colors that make saS-  isl'actory linings and which aro in constant demand. An imior lining of wool  wadding with a plush lining will mako a  coat of the thinnest material practical  in midwinter weather, ������o that it is not'  nccv-ssary to n^e fur if .not debircd, and  it is one of the favorite styles of Ihe  .'���������cason lo tifO Die -thimicfit of materials  for evening conts.

Her reverie was cut short by the sound
of Mrs. Barrison's bell ringing very impatiently, and"? she turned abruptly from
tho mirror and glided into the adjoining
"My' dear? Florice, why are you not at
the-, windovf"t'o watch and warn me of
niy nephew's approach?" she exclaimed,
fretfully and irirtably, adding: "T���I���
am so nervous���so anxious about him."
. "I am sorry to have, caused you one
impatient moment, my dear Mrs. BaTri-
son," said. Miss Austin, in her low,
smooth, musical voice as she vtook up
her position at the window. "You shall
know when I see him coming from afa;
off���ifc is by no means dark yet."
Five, ten, twenty minutes���half an
hour passed, and the hour hand of the
ebony clock on the mantel travelled
around to another hour, yet still the
handsome laggard came not.
The woman on the couch, propped up
by half ,a dozen pillows, could illy control her impatience; the girl standing
by the window, as immovable as a marble statue, was wrapped in her own
thoughts. The darkness was now impenetrable. She did not turn around;
better to stare out there into the darkness than be forced to talk.
Leaving them thus, dear reader, you

from his lips.

half buried in the snow, and in less

suddenly about, throwing his rider in a

"Lead the way and I'll follow, riding
Ladybird/' commanded Carlisle, and,
raging at every step over his "HI luck in
coming on horseback instead of waiting
for the stage, he at last found himself
standing befol'e the" closed door of the
blacksmith's &hop.
"Hello, there!" he called out loudly
and sharply. "This way, smithy���make
haste. I say!"
In answer to his call the wide door
swung open, and, instead of the grimy
horscsltoer whom he expected to see, he
saw, standing in the full red glare of the
forge, a young girl.
And. the picture, or he saw her standing thus, never \$it him in all the long
years of his after life.
A lithe, slender figure, straight as an
arrow, in a bright crimson dress, whose
color wha heigiiievusd to a lurid mass
of flame by the fine of the forge���tbe
same red light fell upon the face���a
rarely lovely one, brown from the wind
and sun, with- great red cheeks and a
small, coral mouth, and a wealth of rip-
' piling hair like a shower of yellow gold
blowing about lier face aa it fell in a
shining mass to her supple waast.
"I���I���beg your pardon*,," said Clifford
Carlisle, springing from bis saddle and
bowing low before this extroardinary
vision of girlish loveliness, wondering
meanwhile who she was. "Could you
tell me if the blacksmith, is about?"
"He is not," responded the young
girl in a, dear, sweet voice. "Grandpa
was not feeling well, and I coaxed him
to go home because ibis is Christmas
Eve���assuring him no one would be in
need of his services, and promising to
stay behind and watch the forge until
the fire got low enough to leave tlie
shop in safety."-
"How very unfortunate that he should
have gone," murmured Carlisle, adding:
"My horse has lost a shoe. I���I���would
gave given a fifty-dollar bill if she could
have bad. another one���any king of a
one tacked on, that I might get on to
the end of say journey. Without it she
will refuse to go a step. That is one of
her cur���one of her odd tricks."
"Would you really give that much to
have your horse shod?" cried) the girl,
breathlessly, eyeing him with great,
wide-open, dilating eyes.
"Ye*," he answered, "the finishing of
my journey quickly, as well as my
horse, is worth ten times that sum to
nue," thinking jehe intended to go and
fete}*, tflu* smithy.
"The-n I will shoe the horse for you���
that is, if the animal is not vicious and
don't kick."
"You!", exclaimed Clifford Carlisle,
wondering, if he had heaird aright, or if
hie ears had not played him some trick.
"Wflvyy not?" responded the gixl,
promptly. "My father was a blacksmith when he was alive, and my grandfather was a blacksmith beforo him, and

Clifford Carlisle's astonishment soon
gave place to amusement, and he ordered Sambo to lead Ladybird at once into
tine shop.

amus-ed him vastly.
"Do you live here?" lie inquired, still
lingering, the impulse strong within him
to loam more of h��r.
"Yes," she returned; "a mile down the
road over which you came."
"And you call that near?"' he exclaimed. "Great heaven!" you wiil perish in
the snow and the storm in aittempting
to reaich th,ere. I had far rather lost
'my horse than to have detained you
here until after dark."
��� Norinne lauabed such'a hearty, rollicking laugh that the very rafters above
their heads shook with her merriment.
"Spare yourself any uneasiness about
me, sir," she cried. "I am used to the
blizzards and the deep snow we have
'sere. I have my snowshocs here, and I
know how to nee them to get home. Besides," silio added, her sweet, red, laughing mouth growing instantly serious, "it

him in the same grave that was dug
for my young mother scarcely a fortnight before."
"X���I���beg ten thousand pardofts for
recalling to your mind such sad memories." murmuredvClifford Carlisle, raising his hat, humbly. f*Will you try to
forgive me?"
"There is nothing to blame you for,
sir,"  replied Norine,  adding,  softly:   "I
always think of my brave, young father
and   my   sweet,  hapless   young  mother
when I see the eold white snowdrifts."
"You tell me your parents are dead,
and you speak of your grandfather���do
���do you live with him?"
Norine nodded her curly golden head.
"Yes, with my grandpa and dear old
grandma," she replied.
"Do you not find life very dull sund
lonely," he asked, "spent in the society
of such old people?���you, who seem, so
fond of life, brightness and gaiety?"

"Lead tadybird out of the shop," com-'

his valet, who was standing gazing on

eyes and mouth, as if it were quite impossible, even yet, to give credence to
what he had. just witnessed: Ladybird
being shod by a young girl, and certainly
the sweetest, daintiest, most charming
girl his gasse had ever rested upon.
After Sambo had obeyed his command,
Clifford Carlisle still lingered.

What was there in that low, thrilling
voice, in the glance of those dark, brilliant, mesmeric eyes, that stirred slightly
the unawakened heart in little Norine's
breast? She flushed as' dee*p a crimson
as the dress she wore, and her big, blue,
childish eyes fell before his eager, burning glance.
. "I always come here io ibe shop to
-wait for grandpa and accompany him
home," she stammered.,
"Ah, then A shall see you again, little Noriue. I was angry enough at Ladybird when 1 found she-had cast a shoe.

he whispered, taking advantage of her

And with these words lie turned and

Norine stood quite still on the same
spot on which he had lefty her; gazing
vacantly into ��� the glowing coals, and,
.gazing thus, the moments flitted by unheeded. She did not notice that tho
coals, ono by one,'.were turning to a dull,
ashen }rra.y. and that _Lho old shop was
growing bitterly cold, and that the wind
���was rising and blowing with demoniac
fierceness outside, and the drifts were
piling themselves high against the door

The young man fairly gasped for

"You should never have*t.iken that for

"Why do you say that when you do
not even know him?" flashed out Norine
angrily, her sweet young voice growing
strangely hard and cold.
"Because I saw him shoot down in
cold blood the mate to the' horse he
brought in here, and the curses that fell
from his lips horrified me, man though
I am."
Norine turned,white to the lips, but
she made him no answer.
"Come," he said, "your grandparents
sent me to look for you when you did
not come home as soon ai they
thought you should. Tliey will be worrying   every moment.   Come, Norine."
Without another word Norine put on
her cloak and hood, allowing big,
strong, faithful Joe, vtho was always
about when danger menaced her, to lift
her through the little narrow window.
"It js the -\vildest night we have ever
had. Norine,"'lie cried anxiously, '\lwill

She was always so frolicsome, so merry, but to-night gay iitlle Norine was
strangely quiet.
"Was that a sigh from her lips," he
asked himself, stopping short and turning nround anxiously. Tltei*, forgetting
the .rigid discipline he had laid out for
himself to folloAv, he cried solicitously:
Are you weary, and very cold, Norine,
There was no answer, and with a
startled cry he turned and groped his
steps backward through the snowdrifts
and the midnight darkness.
Yes, she had sunk down, unconscious,
overcome by the exertion and the bitter cold.
With a cry that welled up from ihe
very depths of his heart, he caught her
up in 'his strong orms and strained her
to  liis breast, faltering hoarsely:
"I- will save you, my iittle love, whom
I have never yet told the story that has

That is Where an Ant's Grow and He
Has Six oi Tham.
Strange as it may seem, an ant has
at least six ears. Aside from their multiplicity they are located in just about
the queerest place imaginable���on the
legs. They seem deaf" to all sounds
made by the vibration of the air, but
detect- the slightest possible vibrations
of *oli<l  material.
This is supposed to be to their advantage, in that such things as approaching
footsteps tell more of the possibility of
danger than such sounds as are transmitted through the air.
So sensitive are their feet, says St.
Nicholas, that they detect the impact of
a small birdslmt dropped on the table
from a height of about six inches, and
about fourteen feet distant from an artificial nest placed nt the other end of
the tables.
As curious as are their ears, their
noses are even more extraordinary. As
the ants spend most" of their time in
the dark, they must depeftd largely on
scent for their guidance, and in consequence have quite an elaborate array of
noses, *>ach for a special purpose.   ���
Miss Adelc .Field* believes that their
antenae are composed of a number of
noses strung along in a line. [5till more
strange is that fact that each of these
no��es can smell only a special thing.
Thp nose on the tip or first joint of
the antenna, Jt is said, is for recognizing the odor of the home: the one on
the second joint is to recognize relatives,
The third nose is the pathfinder, and
without it the poor ant cannot follow
a trail and soon gets hopelessly lost.
The noses on the fourth and fifth joint
are for recognizing the eggs and immature ants in the ne&fc.
No creature is more tidy; than an
ant, who cannot tolerate the *presence of
dirt on her body." These little creatures
actually hse a' number or real, toilet
articles in keeping themselves clean^No

fine, tooth combs, hair brushes,
sponges and even washes and soap. Their
saliva is their liquid soap, and their
soft tongues arc  their sponges.
Their comb* like their ears are fastened to their legs. They stop for a
hasty cloaii-np when they get dirty.
But a more leisurely toilet is made
when they feel Jn :i. loaf ing mood, and
they then lend  a helping hand to one

Conventional   Mode of Representation
and  its Origin.
How docs a horse gallop? Owing to
the rapidity of action it cannot be seen
by the"human eye. However, just as the
individual spokes of a rapidly revolving
v.'Iscel can be made vi*5iblj? bv it -Hash of
lightning, so the action of a galloping
horse can be and has been analyzed by
instantaneous photography.
The statuette of Sysonby, the thoroughbred, has been made from photo-
as to form an acute angle with the line
of the body, and thus serve the purpose
of a spring in breaking the force of the
impact of the hoof when the horse is
going at top speed.
/ In the conventional mode of representing a galloping horse all four le��*s ���
are off the ground .at once, but the
front pair are extended backward in
siich a way that the under surfaces of
their hoofs are directed skyward, tho
body being at the same time brought
near the ground- This conventional pose
appears to have been derived from a
dog running, when the front and hind
pairs of legs are respectively extended
forward and backward, with the soles
of the hind feet turned upward.
This pose, it is thought, -was adopted
to represent the gallop of the horse by
the goldsmiths of Mycenae between 800
and 1000 B. ���., whence it was transmitted by way of Persia and Siberia to
China and Japan, to return in the eighteenth century,- as the result of commercial relations, to western Europe.���Chicago Tribune.

[The Editor is not responsible for the  opinions of his correspondents, nor does  2se always agree with, them.]  The Editor,  Creston Review.  1 Dear Sir,���������Regarding *he late School  Social, I must take exception to the statement of Mrs Darbyshire that the Alice  Siding sell doI children were not asked to  take part at the Scbcol Social. In discussing matters with the Alice Siding  school teacher, Mrs. Darbyshire asked  the Alice Siding school children to take  part, and the inference conveyed by last  week's letter that the Alice Siding children had "butted in," so to speak, is  <juite untrue.  Through the kindness of a citizen,  Xmaa stockings were provided for all  children taking part, but the Alice Siding children got none.  While to ns grown-up -people this whole  subject is of little account, several children look at the matter differently. If  it had been known that the Alice Siding  ���������children were to he oh. the "ontside," I  iim sure none of ns parents from this  ���������district would have troubled to come,  and the receipts of the School Social  would be quite a few dollars less.

The client was somewhat perturbed, but told tlio attorney  he would have u talk with the witnesses  and let him know the next morning  what ho had decided.  Truo to his word, ho dropped in bright  and early, wearing tho cheerful look of  one who has fought tho good fight,  "I've seen those witnesses," he explained, "and they say thoy must have  been mistaken when they talked with  you. Thoy all sec it alike now. I've also  seen some of the jurymen, and they  think I'll win. '..Now, if there's such a  thi-g as justice in law, we can't lose."  BETTER THAN SPANklNG.

The following statement coacernhig  crop conditions during the first week of  November, 1003, based ou the returns  of nearly one thousand correspondents,  has been prepared by the Ontario Department of Agriculture.  Fall Wheat. While' a few correspondents claim that the grain did not turn  oul as well as was expected from the  stand, the great majority of thojff reporting regard fail wheat as st5 ertra  good crop.  Spring wheat. Each year farmers have  less to say about spring wheat. The crop  is described as from fair to good in both  yield  aud quality."  Barley. The yield of barley was variable, and, taking the Province over,  will be a little below an average yield.  Oats. This crop may be described*, as I  being in most cases rather light in yield  per  acre  and also light  in   weight per  measured bushel.  Peas. Opinions are much divided as to  peas, reports concerning the crop running from "poor" to "very good." The  weevil  is still  in evidence.  Mixed Grains. Tlie growing of mixed  grains rppears to be gaining in favor,  although some correspondents object to  it. The favorite combination is late bailey and early oats; then come peas and  oats;   mid  barley,  oats and peas.  The new fall wheat. The high 'prices  which have been prevailing for wheat  have resulted in a considerably .enlarged area of that grain bein? sown this  fall. ,  Corn. Notwithstanding the backwardness ",of the spring and the consequent  lateness of,planting, has turned out well.  Tobacco. This crop is only medium in  yield, but the leaf is of good quality.  Buckwheat. A greatly increased acreage has been given to buckwheat this  year, owing' to the wet, cold spring being adverse to the sowing of the move  standard grains. This will be remembered as the buckwheat    year.  Clover seed. The summer was too dry  for the best res/alts in clover seed. The  general quality of the seed saved ranks  high.  Potatoes. Notwithstanding that the  crop has suffered from drouth in some  quarters, the general trend of returns  indicates an unusually big yield of  large, smooth, sound looking potatoes^  Turnips. Reports regaiding these  roots are variable, ranging from fair  to gool. x  Mangel wurzels. These roots have not  done so well as turnips.  Carrots. Returns relating to carrots  are so meagre that they canvhardly be  cousidered   as a regular  fielcf crop.  Sugar beets. A fair yield of rather  small size beets of good quality summarizes the reports regarding' this crop.  Fruit., Taking all classes of fruit together the year has been a fairly good  one. Tho yield of late fall and winter  apples has been up to the average.  There are some complaints of apples being small in size on account of midsummer drouth, and heavy winds in October shook off a lot of the fruit. There  were the usaal number of reports of  wormy truit.  Live stock. Some correspondents, moro  particularly in the eastern portion of  the Province, speak favorably of the  condition of fall pastures, but the majority of the returns tell of rather close  cropping. The result is that live stock  as a rule arc not in flesh, and there has  boon a steady culliug- out of poor animals, moro especially among dairy cows,  Good prices'far iOll classes of live stock  have also helped to lessen the number  on-hand.  Tho dairy. Tho season, notwithstanding dry midsummer conditions, has been  a good ono for the dairy industry. Prices  havo *- been fair for cheese and high for  butter, the latter branch of the industry relatively making most advance this  season. Tho general quality of butter  was good, both in the creamery and  dairy- classes.  Poultry. ,Good prices for fowl for the  table', and ecjually good prices for eggs,  notwithstanding the high prices of grain,  aro encouraging farmers to givo more  attention to poultry raising.  Farm labor. There was a sufficiency  of farm labor, generally speaking, although here ami there a scarcity was  reported.* Tho quality of much of tho  labor offered was not up to tho stand-*  aid. Afho wages of farm laborers are  nrd: Tlie wages of fnrm lahnrerHinm'iint  likely to rise, but rather to fall.  Threshing and marketing. Threshing  was w'ell ndvnnced aR correspondents  wrote;.in fact it.was finished in moHt  cases. A dollar a bushel for whet was  coaxing a moderate quantity of that  grain into tho mnrkct, nnd somo are evidently holding back for ovon bettor  prices; but a majority aro keeping the  "bulk of their wheat, unrloy, oats,and  .other grainB to feed to live stock, as  they claim that it pays them ns well iii  cash, and it also keeps up the fertility  of the soil.  Fodder supplies. Tho lessons of tho  Inst two years in husbanding fodder supplier- have been well learned by Ontario  farmers, nnd thoy face the coming winter with confidence. There ig a short ago  of hay compared with the avorago Mm-  won, but moat��������� f.irnioiK have enough for  local need, and it is of pvimo quality,  Prices A-nugo all tlio wny from $8 to $10  a ton/ nnd seme ovon higher, according  to locality. Straw, which usually' sells  at about half tho price .of hay, is also  rather scarce, but it is clean nnd of  first-clnr.M qunlity. Thero will be plenty of turnips, but a lighter supply of  (In* other roots. Tlte hnmenue yield of  fo.hhi toi,i, h&wrvc r, r.ht-im������ a fnlrly  safe wintering of livo ("took,  Fall plowing.
