Methodists Give Cantata  On'Saturday evening the Methodist  ohurch celebrated the Yuletide season  at a cantata given by the children  and young people of the church in the  - Mercantile Hall. The "Koronation  of King Kris Kriogle" was the can-  *t3ta used and the evening was a pronounced success.     The cantata    was  \ gotten up under the supervision of  Mrs. T. *M. Edmonson' and G.

Mr. Bennett with  Mr. J. Grafton, who is well known  as a real estate man in the Crow and  Kootenay countries, have a considerable amount of Creston property  listed and are now in the old country  in its interests. They are selling  Creston property exclusively because  they believe the valley ofierB the best  prospects for fruit raisers and are  going to spend most of their time in  the ^ruit raising belt in the old  country. They hope to turn men  with experience in fruit lines' towards  Creston and should be the means of  bringing large numbers of settlers to  the district.  3B5S  $150,000 TO BE SPENT  ON ROADS IN DISTRICT  >���������  ���������! ������������������mm.mmm  Highway Authorities Busy Making  Up  Their Budgets For  Coming  Season; Much To Be Done  If the plans of the authorities that (and pass through  the center of the  INSTALLS      OFFICERS  Vlasonlc Official Pays' Visit To.

A,  Speow, W.. M.'i Jawi'l  Practically at the same time that  word is received from Mr. Bennett  saying that he is in the old country  comes a letter describing his trip  across the continent. There are few  people in Creston who have not made  the trip over the C.P.R. and Mr.  Bennett's description-should be interesting -to the citizens hereabouts. He  writes; as follows :  Seeing Canada on tl e C. P. R.  "A "Journey across -the Canadian  continent is today so .commonplace  that one scarcely deems -the events of  such ^'trip worthy oEV more than  passing notice; nevertheless there is  an^hjaiyiduality about **ea'chr'* journey-  tihat makes it stand forth;prominent  in the traveler's mind ,eve,n though-  the narration be of but elig.ht interest to the reading publiit, amd being  afflicted with an attevck .of the  cacoothes scribendi a ct'ee oi habit  (hope he hasn't tafcen a turn for the  worse), second nature will attempt a  short review of the journe; r from the  one   extremity   of    Canad.

Benny, road  supervisor for Ymir district, is to connect up all the ranches if possible with  good roads and to spend considerable  money on the main trunk roads.  Road authorities over the Dominion  are now preparing for the coming season, their budgets being the principal  work at present. The budget in Ymir  district will be particularly large this  year because the valley has been settled at such a fast, rate. Supervisor  Benny is alive to the needs in this vicinity and is especially desirous of  giving Creston good roads before the  end of the summer. He is going to  Nelson this week to discuss the matter  with the authorities there and the  appropriation which will be asked for  will permit of more good road work  around Creston than has ever been  seen here before. Mr. Benny wantfc  '.o give the ranchers good roads and  bis principal desire now is to connect  the main ranching districts and give  the ranchers themselves roads between  their farms.  On Line Of Trunk Road  The one principal item in the budget will be for money enough to build  a good road between Goatfell ,ond Si-  "dar on the Lake.- Most' of this road is.  ��������� m the line of the Canadian Highway  which has been mapped out across the  continent,   It is barely possible that  the road will be used for the   trunk  route.   There is little doubt but  that  Lhe main trunk road will hit Creston  town, if tha route is laid out over the  Summit Pass the road will swing  down over the railroad and down  Fourth street and across the flats. If  the road should swing around Kootenay lake, the trunk road would not'  swing below tbe C. P. R. tracks but  would continue on down to Wynndel  ft :d Sirdar.  Mr. Benney declares that he is going  to try and have a  trunk road to the  lake from Creston whether   the main  Canadian Highway goes tbat way or  not.   There is  no question however  that Ct eston wiil be in a position to  fight for its rightful place  as a point  on the main road  when it gets this  built.   A road already built or even  under   construction   is a big factor  when trunk lines are being matraed  out.   There  has   heen    considerable  money spent on the road from here  to Duck Creek already and it would  take a few thousand more to put it  into good shape.   For nearly half the  distance it is 'already graded.   A part  of the remaining distance a consider* '  able amount of rock work will have to  be done and several bumps taken out  of the right of way but the road pre*  Bents no engineering difficulties*  Good Rood To Canyon &tf  The part of the toad from Kitchener  to Goatfell will probably be the hardest to cope with as it is in poor condition'   now.   It is little more than a.-  trail.and the road builders will run  through- primitive forest a good- dssi  of\tbe������wav; - Ftotit Creston to Canyon.  <3ity, the" road, is good and wfienT a  bridge is built, across the Goat River  canyou it will be all that could be desired.   A bridge across the Goat Oanyon would cut oult two hills that ara  about three fourths of a mile in length.

F. Robinson, of Victoria  who is\ lecturing for the Provincial  government on the, subject, Mr. Robinson is a practical bee farmer and his  talk as given to the Creston farmers  was most interesting. ���������  This Is the first attempt of tho provincial government to get the people  interested in bi e culture.   Tjue Dominion of Cutfada Is nows importing;,honey  from    Now Zealand,   Australia, the  '.States and even  tbo Old   Country,  Thoro sooms to  be an unlimited do-  .euahd according to Mr. Robinson and  (this Is the reason the governmont has  iwterest^d Itself.    Mr. Robinson do-  olares that there is no reason in the  Wbrlld   why  tho farmers of British"  'Columbia ehe old  not pick up a few  hundred oxtra dollars each year thru  Itho raising of boos and the production  iof honoy.   Tho government Is much  Untcrofttcd in the problem of In trod uo.  ing boo culturo on a commercial basis  Into the province nnd Mr.. Robinson  [ has a long tour mapped out for htm  in his work.       '  Mr. HnUirH-n rulvlfcd any one In*  toronted 11 \. es to start with not more  than two culoiucs.   Ho advises two  ooion.<'siH tiiobukil uumlHiiatr.ll thsaea  or the beginner because It one colony  becomes weak it can ba built up from  the other and in case tnore hives are  taken for the start the look of experience of the amateur bee farmer may1  cause him to lose the entire number of  heea. Bees are easy to handle and re*  quire attention only about three or  four months per year. Mr. Robinson  after-looking into the possibilities of  the Creston Valley declared that It  could easily support from 200 to 800  colonies of lees and he advised  the fruit growore to take up their  culture if for no other rr**on than  that of cross fertilization of the trees  in the orchards.  According to Mr. Robinson the Creston ranchers could get two crates of  bees, each hive containing a thoroughbred queen bee laid down here at 91!  per crate and,tho express charges  Tliat would make an  investment of  about $80 for the first two cratss and  after that the bee farmer would taktt  caroof bis own now broods of been  Some of the Crenton Valley rahchern  have Polonies Vof bees ab present but  there are only a couple or them that  oaro for them on a Bclent'flc buiN.  When handled tight bees will produce  about 750 pound per colony audi theru  IsAlway a market for tho product.  There ib ovory likelihood that ���������ome  more Creston ranchers will enter lnt������  the bee business in a small way during  the coming summer.

The Oppositionist tilled his well-  cushioned armchair in the ' hotel' rotunda like a sagged-down heap of humanity and overcoat, and the whole  suggested a man taking his ease in his  inn and not worrying about his digestion or the worst the clerk could do'  with his bill, says a writer in a humorous sketch in The Montreal Standard. He had just had his lunch, his  mid-day meal which, if he were' at  home in Bunkerville, he would call  dinner; and now in the laziest posture permissible in a hotel rotunda,  he was enjoying his after-dinner  smoke.  Now was the psychological moment  for learning the man's thoughts respecting the change in his political  fortune.

INFANTILE  PARALYSIS  A Germ Disease Which is Baffling the  Doctors and Alarming the ,  People Generally  Ic may be said that doctors are only  agreed on two points regarding this  much dreaded disease.  First, that it is a germ disease, and,  second, like, all germ diseases can  only be fought with pure,' rich -blood.

Premiums on new bank stock issued,  by,the bnnk during the year amounted  to $365,677 while the re-adjustment of  the; bank premises- account brought in  an ^additional $3,400,000. Thus a total  of slightly over $7,000,000 was made  available for distribution this year of  which '$1,440,000 was expended ' in  dividends $3,000,000 credited to the  rest account and $708,000 to new premises account, leaving a balance of $1.-  855,000'"to be carried forward as balance .of profit and Io������s. A further examination of the report shows that  th������ bank has deposits bearing interest of nearly $136,000,000 while its de-  ros'ts not bearing interest amount to  $46 000 000. The amount cf ��������� call and  short lo*ns in Grf*at Britain and the  United State* consists'of over $42,600.-  000 whil^ tho current loans and discounts in Canada, and elsewhere  .������������������mornt.to over $121,000,000.

Cresiiii I  RECLAMATION MEANS GREATER CRESTON |  About the third week in January the people of Creston  Valley will be asked to gather in mass meeting to confer  with their neighbors across ths border line and to discuss  ways and Means a! reclaiming the low lands lying at the  foot of the town.  For over two decaeds the people in the Creston Valley  have been talking about reclaiming the flats. It has consisted of little but talk and a few unsuccessful attempts to have  something done without any material progress. Now it is  proposed to have one more talk. Let this be the talk of the  year aad the last. Actions not words should follow. This  one talk-fest ��������� this mass meeting ��������� should be sufficient for  all time. The Review believes that this big talk should take  place and thatthe residents on the Canadian and American  sides of the line-the neighbors in this beautiful, broad Kootenay valley, the part on the Canada side being known the  more generally as the Creston Valley-should get together  on a common footing and reclaim the lands. Every resident  who attends this meeting, and all should attend, should go  with the intention of discussing the matter to a finish and  then decide upon the course to*pursue. The project should  be put into the hands of a couple dependable men who win  "Work with their neighbors to the South. After the leaders are picked everything should be done to assist them after tliey begin their   campaign for the betterment   of the  The Leading  Hotel of the  Fruit    Belt  Our  Catt  Guests  cAgain  OV will make no mistake  when you get off the train  if you sign the register at  the Creston Hotel.

What better conditions could a valley ask than  to have valuable and productive fruit ranches on its benches  and da;ry farms on   its   40,000 acres   of flats?    Certainly������  such a condition would be ideal.    Neither farmer would en *  croach upon the other and it. would mean that all manner o  farming wealth would be enclosed between these high moun  tains that surround us.  The ranchers who are now making Cr Eton's nam*  known throughout several countries have worked hard t<  get established and will continue working hard. Some ol  the finest fruit ranches in the Western Hemisphere are right  here in the Creston Valley.      These tracts are     coverec  with hundreds and thousands of productive apple trees were  thousands of acres that are now lying idle and practically I once covered with timber.

Reclaimed ,th������sc lands will  and a few dollars spent now will bring these millions. Every  resident in the Valley will benefit by the improvment. All  broad minded people will abmit that the flats ought to be re  claimed.    Now is  the time to do it.  The public mass meeting as The Review understands  it is to be open to everybody. Arguments against the reclamation wili be entertained as well as those for it. If the arguments against reclamation are convincing and it can be  shown that reclamation would hurt instead of benefit Creston  we have no doubt but that the meeting would vote down  aay   projected  move.  But we do not anticipate that arguments against the  reclamation project will come very fast if'at all. Every per  son that has tne interests of the Valley as a whole at hear  will give his entire support to the project. Some of those  who now use the flats as a free grazing; ground and as a  place on which to cut free meadow grass may odject but  it is unreasonable to presume that a community will allow  a few residents go along year after year holding back thousands of acres because they an; now getting something for  nothing. Big schemes of this, nature generally cause a howl  to go up from a few who are under the impression that their  rights are being encroached upon when as a matter of fact  they have no legal right to the privileges they are assuming.  There are laws of supply and demand that cannot be denied. One of the inherent principals of political economy is  that prices are regulated by this supply aud demand. The  Kootenay and Crow countries are going through on era of  high prices in the matter of produce and dairy probuct \  This is because the demands high and the supply low.  Really fresh products along these lines ���������* garden truck, hay,  milk in quantity, butter and eggs ��������� are bird to get along  the broad stretch of country invaded by the C. P. R. rail*  It will not be long befo.e farmers outside of Canada and  many more in Canada will see that the place to get gool  prices for mixed farm products is in some valley along these  steel rails. WHY NOT AT THIS TIME PROVIDE THE  PLACE RIGHT HERE IN THE CRESTON VALLEV  WHERB THEY CAN SETTLE?  The time ht ripe for this demand for better and Iresher  goods at better prices to make it absolutely imperative that  soma valley in Brititsh Columbia be opened up for real dairy  and mixed farming. Creston Valley is the ideal spot. It  if midway between the prairieji and the Coast. No other valley has the equable climate that is enjoyed In this valley. No  other valUy has the breadth and scope which will allow  of co-operative forming on a large scale*   Creston has the  WM+K  millions timber before the rancher could begin operations. A slightly  rrvrx ui  I  different condition prevails in the lowlands.   They are   covered with water in lhe Spring.    Somebody must remove the  water,- and then there   will   be just   as fine dairies   ane  truck farms, as these industries go, on  the lowlands  as wt  uow have fruit ranches on the benches.

BENNETT  *'     DESCRIBES   TRIP  (Continued from page 1)  it is too early, to arise the better  Plan is to lie quietly and await the  "break of day. Aiid -what a glorious  sight unfolds itself before our gaze  as Old Sol begins to make his presence known by darting forth his rayo  above the horizon. To picture adequately a sunrise on the prairie demands language far beyond the scope  of our mediocre imagination, accompanied by the brush of. a landscape  artist of exceptional ability, (hence  self-consciousness compels us to refrain from further comment,.save   to  say to be appreciated    must be wit  nessed.  "'First call for breakfast!' breaks  upon our reveries, when donning hab-  ���������ilments (although not with the ������ame  ease and rapidity that -js possible under'normal conditions) we hie to the  'washroom. The . morning ablutions  performed, we visit.the dining car to  Partake of the daily initial repast.  The service on the C.P.R. has been  repeatedly described, therefore see no  necessity to add any remarks except  en passant to allude to that* stereotyped subject of tipping, whoch theoretically is not necessary, but practically is essential, because the railroad companies know full well that,  the wages paid to the waiters are so  small that in order to live these men  must obtain gratuities from the  guests.  Saw Damaged Grain  "In Alberta and Saskatchewan,  along the line of travel we noticed  thousands of bushels of grain and  flax which if not entirely destroyed  were seriously damaged by the severe  weather, ��������� and upon enquiring the extent of the* injury,- were informed by  two farmers who boarded the train,  at Maple Creek, that it was in the  neighborhood of 65 to 70 per cent. ,  i_*'Moose Jaw from appearance, is on  the eve of a period of activity; building and excavating being noticeablyy  prominent.

The  Life the  Prince of Wales  Leads  at, Sea. *  Since his Royal Highness tho  Prince of Wales lias taken up actively  the duties of his naval rank, doubtless-many of hi.s future subjects are  wondering whnt sort of life he is  leading now that he has disappeared  from public view on board H'.M.S.  Hindustan.  In'the first place he will spend most  of tho time, when lie is not on deck  or elsewhere on duty, in what is  known as the "srun-room." The'officers in a warship are 'divided, into  two ''messes"���������the "ward-room" and  the  "gun-room."  The former���������the senior mess��������� includes nil officers from the commander down to the lieutenants, together  with the marina officers, and the of-  cers of corresponding rank in the  engineering, medical, and accountant  branches.  The sun-room is not a large apartment, being usually about 21 feet by  10 feet, and it forms the dining and  living-room of some twenty or twenty-  five junior officers, so that space is  at a premium.  All round the gtm-room run leather  seats, on wliich the tenants may sit  or lie, as their inclinations���������or views  of their seniors���������dictate Overhead  and on the walls arv> sundry lockers.  in which small articles of personal  property  may  be stowed.  The feeding arrangements in the  gun-room a~e looked after by a caterer, under the supervision of a committee, elected from among the members of the mess, and though it will  not hear, comparison with the Carlton or Ritz. the food is usually, nowadays, good, both in quality and  quantity. The gun-room officer is  only called upon to nay u mess subscription of one shilling per diem,  which provides him with breakfast,  lunch, and dinner. Tea is an "extra."  however.

Furness,  a��������� psychologist of Wallingford, Pa,  several days ago announced the result  of his" two years' work at training the  simians.  "The chimpanzees c*m distinguish  readily the difference in colors, sizes  and shapes, and understand spok'������  words, obeyini^ commands through u  process of pure reasoning. They st.euk  a number of the shorter worus. Dr.  Furness declares   their   mentality  aO), for He is able to do exceeding  abundantly above all we ask or think  (Eph. iii, 20). How did they requite  such love? They despised His name  by offering polluted bread upon His  altar, by offering the blind, the lame  and the sick for sacrifice; byr offering  to the Lord what they would not off^r  theii eaithly ruler and by calling all  their to called service a weariness (j,  6-8, 12, 13). They wearied the Lord  with their words, saying, "Every one  that doeth evil is good in the sight of  the Lord, and he delighteth in them"  (ii, 17). They robbed the Lord of  hosts in tithes and offerings- and yet  said, "Wheiein have we robbed thee?"  They said, "It i-- vain to serve God,  and what profit it that we have kept  His ordinance and walked mournfullv  before Hnn?" Tbey called the proutl  happy and set up those who wiought  wickedness (iii, 8, 13-15).  Y^t He said: "Return unto Me, and  I will return unto you. I will rebuke  the devourer, and all nations shall  call you bles-ied, for ye shall be a d������-  lighfcsome land, saith the Lord of  ho������ts" (-iii, 7 ,12). He is the same as  when He pl.:aded witb them before thep  captivity, saymg, "O Israel, thou hast"  destroyed thyself, but in Me is thine  " 1 help."   ������������?r������;���������~H,l.,",k���������,K*SF_ t,nl"}y iniquity" (Hovxiii. 9: *iv, if.
