 OPERATION PLANS  (Amendment   Asking  Delegation Of  Fruit Growers To Meet With It  Is Brought Forward  's  A step tending towards the closer, would be to the country at large, and  junion of the Fruit Growers association  fend the Board of Trade was taken by  ehe latter organization at its meeting  Tuesday evening when an amendment  [jk> its by laws was presented, which, if  issed at the next regular of the body  |n January, will result in five members  pf the ranchers   organization taking  seats   at its monthly sessions."  The  intendment will have to be voted up-  j>n finally at the annual meeting of  mo Board on January 9 and will then  jo before the fruit growers for ratification    and   appointments.   Several  lembers of the Board of Trade believe  chat the move  will result in better  f/hings for the valley if the two organi-  itions will discuss their troubles on a  fcommon basis and the action was ta-  cen accordingly.   Some of the fruit  >wers have been interviewed as to  f,htir opinions on the matter and they  ive declared it to be a good move.  Practically as important to Creston  j'were the  resolutions  adopted  to be  [placed before the meeting of the Associated Boards bf Trade of ��������� Eastern  Jritish Columbia at Rossland during  (he second week of January.'  These  resolutions dealt with the mattor of  building roads and the reclamatiort'of  the lowlands fronting town. f  Idaho Votes Pavroably  "WHEREAS, in the state of Idaho  Resolution  Good. Roads  The .resolution pertaing to roads  goes further than did the petition circulated throughout the towa^some  , days ago in connection with the Goatfell road and urges the improvement  of tbe road between Kuskanook and  Duck Greek.   It reads as follows;  "WHEREAS the road from Kuskanook is nearly completed with tbe exception of about twelve miles between  Kitchener and Goatfell, and about  thirteen miles between Kuskanook  and Duck Creek, and  "WHEREAS this road is greatly  needed for the traffic between these  two points, and  "WHEREAS 'rthose desiring to use  the road' ate at the mercy of the transportation'companies,  "Now this Board request that tho  matter be taken up by the Associated  Boards of Trade with the Minister of  Public works, with a view having this  important highway linked up within  tho next year."    '      y  Urges Reclamantlon  Tho; resolution pertaining to the  reclamation of tho lowlands waa introduced by Guy Lowenberg and reads  us follows; "���������. ,'  "WHEREAS    thero are  approximately thirty thousand acres of moa-  dow lands contiguous  to Creston in  the Oreston Valloy, which nro subject  i to yearly overflow, and  "WHBREAS tiho eaid acreage con-  nlsta oi hvndu of tjho highest agricultural valuavand of groat fortuity, and  "WHRlijjtAlS'wo have reason to bo-  llovo tliub tho lands ean hu reclaimed  from Uio nijl'id yoarly ovorflowt Mill  "WHBJIl'lteAS the aaid lands would  thon bucouio asset of gvcut commercial  value io Croston, to tho Provinqo and  to the Dominion, aud   '  "WHEREAS w������  bollovo that the  eaid reclamation, can ho effected without injury to any other vostod rights  in thin Provineo or olsowhero, and  ,   . "WHEREAS thcBb Baid lands If ro.  claimed, would bo worth a very largo  ' valuation, approximating  nnmo  mil-  i lions ol! loilavy, yioldlug "a  vory con-  ) oldorabU* sum yearly iu Ihixum lo the  govern noiit.. _, wcllus the great h������ml-  llts that the Bottlcmoiit of *thono lands  the Legislature has taken a vote of  the people of the valley as to the desirability of having the lands on the  United States side reclaimed, with a  return of two to one in favor of the  scheme:  "NOW THEREFORE WE, the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern  Britiah Columbia,   in meeting assembled, do respectively and urgently request that the attention of the Minister  of  Agriculture   be drawn to the  large    acreage of fertile lands afore  mentioned, and that a duly qualified,  engineer or commission be appointed  to inquire  into and report on the feasibility and   best method adopted for  reclaiming    the   said  lands,   and the  said report be obtained at the earliest  date, and that when complete it be issued to the public for'their information  to acquaint them with the  feasibility  or otherwise ofithe scheme, and with  a view, also, to induce private enterprise to  undertake   the   reclamation  work, if shown to be practicly."  Divided On  Herd Law  Secretary Fowler read letters from  both the Provincial and Dominion  authorities which dealt wiih'the' herd  law and its enforcement and there appears to be a division of power on the  sribject. Mr. ��������� Fowler was instructed to  write the Department -of Agriculture  requesting chat the matter of supervision be straightened out.  A resolution Was also adopted asking  for the continuation of the ferry 'service across the river throughout the j  winter. The members declared tha  that the ferry.was needed more when,  the ice was forming and when breaking up in the Spring than ab any other  time. ThiB resolution will be referred  to the proper authorities.  Upon a motion by Mr. Wqlmsley,  the committee in charge of tlie cabi  nets on the station platform was disbanded and the cabinets ord ered down  for the winter.  Present Important Amendment  Practically the last thing done at  the meeting was the introduction of  the amendments, one reducing a quorum from 0 to 7 members ami the other dealing with thu seating of ilvo  of tho fruitgrowers in the Board of  Trado,   The latter was to the eifect:  "That the Creston Frtit arid Pro-  duce Association be asked to send a  representation of five member to this  board to whom mattors relating ��������� to  thoir Interests can bo referred and.  which can bring up mattors which tlio  weight of this board and its kindred  associations are in a better position to  handle than they."  * Annual Meeting Jan. p  These umondtnonfcs will bo brought  up for final disposition on January 0  whon tho utmuul meeting of iho  Board of Trado will bo held. The ann"  ual election of officers arid tho appoint  mont of delegatus to tho convention nt  Rossland will bo in ordu������ of buslnosH.  Bovarul othor important mattors wil  also be dlucubsud.        .  PORT HILL RESIDENTS  GOING  AHEAD  Vote To Reclaim Lowlands  By A flajority Of Two  To  One  By a vote of two to one in favor of  the improvement, the residents of District No 6 Idaho which embraces the  land in the vicinity of Port Hill voted to  reclaim all the lowlands in that territory  and they are now awaiting the reports  cf three engineers that have been employed to look over the ground before  going ahead with the work. The reclamation scheme at Port Hill is almost identical with that in the. Oreston  Valley and the Crestou people have  considerable at stake in the move across  the line.  Before the land in Idaho oan be  wholly reclaimed something will have  to be done to lower the level of Kootenay lake during the freshet season and  the Idahoans are going to carry on a  campaign at Victoria in an effort to get  consent of the Provincial governmeu t to  go ahead on their reclamation project.  As soon as the Creston ranchers heard  of the Intentions of the Idaho people  they decided that this would be a good  time to combine forces and as a result  a letter has been written to A. J, Kent,  of Bonners Ferry, one of the prime movers in the scheme, asking him to come  to Oreston and talk the matter over.  Unity May Bring Results  Should Mr Kent and his colleagues in  the district, T. E.Montgomery and Geo.  Anderson, decide to enlist the aid of the j  Oreston Valley people ia their endeavors  at Victoria it is most probable that two  delegations will go to Victoria to intercede for the reclamation project. The  combined influence of the two may  bring results and it would be a source  of great returnV for both Creston Valloy  and the Idaho property holders if the  matter was carried out successf nllv.  There are some 40.000 aores involved  in the Idaho property holders will be  assessed about $20 per aore to carry ontlie  work whioh will consist of dyking,  dig-  ing    of  canals  and  practically  every  known system of draining lauds. There  is suoh a large  acreage involved thiit  there iB hardly a part that can be handled in juBt  the  same manner as the  other parts.   The sentiment of the people involved is shown by the majority of  2 to 1 that Went in. favor of the scheme.  The property holders voted on the basis  of one vote for every forty acres and the  ones who had tho largest holdings arid  as a result will be taxed the most were  strongest in favor of reclamation.  idahoans Expect Difficulties  The leaho people are alive to the dlf ���������  floultica.that they will encounter in trying to have tho level of, the Kootenay  Lako reduced and nro laying their plans  tor a Btrong aud coBtly   fight.

Matters of vital importance to the  frnit growers of Creston Valley were  discussed at a small but enthusiastic  meeting of the Fruit Growers' Association last Friday evening. Practically  the entire session was devoted to discussing questions which will come up  for solution at Victoria next, month  when the annual Fruit Growers' Convention meets. D. S. Timmons; president of the local assooiation, was appointed tc represent Crestou Valley at  the meeting and the discussions Friday  night were over the instructions that  should be given him. Probably the  most important recommendation was  one urging the Provincial and Dominion  governments to see that boxes of fruit  Bent across the line be properly marked  and conform with the Canadian fruit  laws. TheBe laws are being evaded  dailvby the producers and commission  men in the States, according to the belief of the fruit growers iu Canada, and  some strenuous action will no donbt be  taken by the convention body at Victoria.  The first question brought up at the  meeting was that of the sizes of apple  boxes.   It was recommended  that the  present  standard   be   maintained   as  the   uniform and recognized box.   It  was also recommended that the standard  for crab apple boxes be' made full and  half sized apple boxes.   The half apple  box for crabs is reebmmended because  the trade demands smaller quantitier  than the full box measure.  States Send Short Boxes  The present two-fifth ani four firth  cap for berries were also recommended  the best for all purposes at present with  a majority of the members of the members in favor of a deep instead of a shallow cup. The fruit growers also request  that the American growers be made  conform with the Canadian cup in sending their goods to tbis country. ' Duting  the past seusea the local and other British Columbia growers were at a disadvantage booause the Amerioan growers were allowed to bring in berries in  smaller caps than is required by the  Canadian Aot. As a result the merchants oould undersell the looal markets  by passing off a smaller box on tbo nn-  snspooting publio. The looal growers  urge that all berries coming into the  country in smaller boxes be marked  "fhorb", This thoy believe would ond  tho practice.  The quoitlon as to   whether applo>  should bo graded with OBpooial regard I  I to  coloriug brought forth determined  support of the prosoint law, JamoB Oook  arid others spoke injfavor of even greater regard for tho coloring of the apples  and it was explained that the grading  acorrding to color affeoted British Columbia moro than any other Province  as it in hore the apples with real co;or  are grown.    It waa poiutod out that  Croston oan produoo as good if not bettor  colored apples than either Washington  or Oregon and ns the color reqalrements  wore made effective in order to ruee  oompotltion ot these highly colorod ap-  plos from the States, British Columbia  should get the full benefit*  of its   red  apples,   British   Columbia oan get at  bettor prloo for its apples booatiBc of its  oolorin * and in competition with Eastern provluooB has a dlntlnot advantaRe.  Break Fruit Markt Act  A. Lindley, sales agent for tlio assoj  elation, brought up tho mattor of Introduction   of now  grade* and now  marks for boxes of ripdlcu and considerable  time   discussing tho quaatlon  from all angles,   It waa brought oub  ,$At the American growers oro bring*  ng fruit into this country marked  "Extra Fancy" and "Extra Choice  Fancy" and such markings. According to the fruit marks act such signs  on boxes are illegal and the inspectors  should stamp "Falsely Marked" upon  the boxes, Tbis is not .being done,  however, and the Creston and other  B. 0.' Growers suffer as the result.  James Compton took the following  stand;  "Lets put up the apples and we will  get the prices. Our No Ts are as good  as the Extra Fancy's that are being  brought here on 1 onr Fancy apples are  just as good as their-Extra Choice  Fancy. The trouble is in the inspection not in the fruit. As soon as we  make the importers live up to the present acts we will get a square deal."  Want Mere Inspection  Mr. Timmons was instructed as   a  result, to stand out for a better inspection service and in line with this move  was the  later  action  requesting the  convention to urge  that all  pest inspectors go   into the   Dominion service.   At present the   Dominion inspectors have to cover too much territory and are compelled to  be lax in  order to keep the fruit moving.   The  Creston growers take the stand that  all they want is a fair show.   They be- -  HeyLeJibat with a -proper, enforcement  of the acts they will he more than able  to compete with the importers as -well  as the growers in othor districts, ^ *  18 In Packing School  Mr. Blinco reported tbat 18 had already applied ������ot places in the packing  school which will be held within a few  i  weeks here and he said that he hoped  that several more would give in their  names in order tbat the two classes  could be brought up to 24 at least.  Other, members brought out the fact  that Creston cannot expect to really  become famed for its apples until it  knows how to pack apples*correctly  and they urged that all growers and  their helpers to join in the school.  Tho noxt meeting of the Fruit grow*  ers will be held next month and it will  bo the annual meeting of thev body.  The question of incorporation will lie  among the most important to he  brought up. i  OVER THE HIKER  Idaho    Men  Select   Valley  Ranch    After   Travelling  For Months In Provineo  Rancher W.

"1 don't think I'd feel  any too friendly toward him."  Slim moved toward the wagon. The  action was.purely involuntary, but it  frightened Polly so much that she  cried aloud.  Slim grasped at once the reason for  her fear, "ls'the feller in that wag  on ?" he shouted.  (ContinuecF.)  Then his courage failed him. and he  stopped. Polly glanced at hini to help  him over the hard places. Slim was  greatly embarrassed. "My heart is  right up in niy throat. Well, 1 might  as well spit it out." he thought aloud.  Again Slim started toward the girl  to tell her of his love, aad again his  courage tailed him, although Tolly was  doing her best to help him.  "Look here. Miss Tolly-. I've been after somebody fer a long time now."  "Horse thief?" asked Polly/ eoquet-  tishly.  "No. heart thief." blurted Slim.  "Stealin' hearts ain't no harm."

Slim's  face broadened in a grin. "You're a  mighty fine piece of work, you are. an'  I've got nn awful yearnin' to butt into  your family."  Polly wns greatly moved by Slim's  sincerity. "I'on't. please don't!" she  pleaded. "Why.

Slim was puzzled at first. Then it  mine to him thut the girl had refused  (o marry him. "Oh, I 'low you-nll ain't  n-golu' to say yon love tne. then!"  "I don't believe I am." Polly smiled  through her tears  '���������Let him alone.''' shouted Slim excitedly.  "You   wouldn't   do   Ulni   any   narni.  (rrould you?" cried Polly  "Is he in that wagon?" Slim repeat-  ������>d angrily.  Polly caught hold of his arm.  !    "What's he hidiu'  for?'  he demand-  | ed.  ]    Slim pulled his gun and covered the  i opening.   "Come out. you coward!" he  j shouted.     Polly   caught   Slim   by   the  i right wrist so be could uot fire.  !    Bnd  leaped from the wagon, drawing his gnu as he did so.    "You shan't  j. call me a coward!" he shouted to Slim.  Polly ran behind Bud and. reaching  her arms about his waist held down  his  hands,  depressing  the   muzzle  of  his   revolver.     Slim   danced   up   and  down  In the excitement   with  his  revolver in  his  band.     Polly   kept calling on both of the men not to shoot.  "Let bim alone!" shouted Slim excitedly.

"Don't, don't!" she cried. "It's  all right. Slim knows all about it. Ho  \ knows I love you, au' he wouldn't  hurt any one that I love. Would you.  Slim?"

"We've been engaged fer ever so  long now. waitin* fer Bud to get rich,  an' now���������an' now it's come," Her  face radiated her happiness.

Stearns. :  The temple being finished and also  the wall around the city (chapter vi,  15; Kz. vi/14, 15), they ure better prepared to hear the word of God in order to do it. The Lord Jesus-^aid'oue  uay whon some one said what a blessed wonian liis mother wus, "Vea,  nithcr blessed are they that hear the  word of God jiritUkeep.-it/'V'O.h, another  occasion Ho said, "My, mother and  My brethren are these.which hear.-the  word of God and do it" (Luke xi, 28;  vii, ill). Ezra was u priest and a  reiuly scribe in the law of Moses and  appeared some  months ago as a serial in Lloyds'  Weekly News. To be strictly accurate,  only the opening chapters were published, for the commencement of action by an actor whose name was similar to thnt of one of the original characters brought it to an abrupt close.  At the trial of the action the author,  a lady, went into the box and declared  that the character complained of waa  a purely fictitious one and was not intended in any wny to represent th������  plaintiff. Nevertheless, the -jury' considered that-Hh'e plaintiff was entitled  to $..000 damages; ,  In publishing the novel in book  bad prepared his heart to seek the Taw-j form, the author has given her own  of the Lord and to do it and to touch ��������� uame ��������� Prothero ���������-to the character  A PIONEER IH MUSIC  WELSMAN DIRECi J CANADA'S BIG,  ORCHESTRA.  it   (.verses  1, '2;  Ez.  vii,  0,  10).  Ht  was therefore just the right man-- to  conduct this Bible conference. It was  attended by both men and women and  all that could hear with understanding (verses 2, ,3), and they were an  earnestly attentive congregation. As  in the building of the wall, it was  titrikiugly suggestive that, they should  begin aud end at the sheep gate, inasmuch .as no work will stand that is  not connected witli tlie blood of the  Lnnib. So in this lesson it .seems most  appropriate that the people should  drink of tlie living water of the word  at the water gate (verses 1, 3), or, as  in xii, 37,'the fountain gate. In Jer.  ii. 111, the liord calls Himself the  fountain of living waters/and in Eph.  v, '26, he is said to sanctify and clednat  His people with the washing of water  hy the word. Compare also Ps. cxix, 9.  It was a long session from morning  until midday (verse 3), and they kept,  it up from the first day unto the last  day  of  the    feast    (verse  18),    and  there   was   very   great  gladness,  with ,     . , -���������-��������������������������� j  confession of sin and separation from   nearly-.hanged   a  few  years ago.  and  which was the subject of the libel  action. "ExtraordinaryA as the law of  libel appears to be," she says. "I  have not yet learned that one can  libel oneself."  Her appeal to other authors to givo  their consent for the use of their  names has been strikingly successful.  Some of the characters, indeed, now  bear very interesting .naa.es George  Bernard Shaw represents a stage-door  keeper, George R.

Barry PainAdivides his name between  an aged man of weak intellect and  his dead son.   -  In giving permission for the use of  his name Mr. Geo. R. Sims wrote this  amusing letter to the author:  By all means use my name in the  way you suggest, but be careful about  the cabman. I have not the slightest  doubt that there are several of them  who bear the aristocratic name of  Sims.   T know that a Sims was very  tlie world (viii, 17; ix, 1-3). It is in  teresting to notice just thirteen men  associated with Ezra in verses 2 and  7, and Dr. Bullinger calls attention to  the first use of thirteen as associated  with rebellion (Gen. xiv, 4). It was  from the results of persistent rebellion that .fizra was seeking to lead the  the people back to God.   It was at the  one was a tamous thief.

He first put into circulation, if he did not invent  "The Grand Old Man." In 1895 he de.  livered in Edinburgh what became  known as "the umbrella speech," in  the course of which he said: "What  is a Liberal? 1 remember the name  Liberal is good enough for Mr. Gladstone, and good enough for Mr.  Bright; and I am quite willing to walk  under an urr>brelia with these two  gentlemen." Lord Rosebery also furn-  ishtvl us with the phrase, "the predominant partner" and "staking out  claims* for the future" as well as many  others of everyday uie in Britain, suen  as "A sane Imperialism;" "The cactus hedge" of tlie Indian frontier, ond  tne "Bluebook and biscuit" student.  of political lore. Just the other day  in his Rectorial address at St. Andrew's University, he referred to Scotland as being in danger of becoming  "u spoon-fed nation," and the pnraso  is already much in vogue.  A Skeleton.  Speaking once on the importance of  omployi. j none but qualified teachers  in schools, Rev. H.

TRfere were just fourteen with  Ezra,   a  twice   seven,   suggesting  the  perfection of God's dealings with His  peonle.   There was one with Ezra invisible to ordinary eyea, the only one  worth considering, and His great word  of  encouragement  is   always,   "I   am  with you"  (Ex.    iii,    32;    Josh, i, 5;  Judg. vi, 16; Isa. xli, 10; Hag i, 13; ii, j  4).   The. response    of the people and |  their, attitude before God seem to indicate that their hearts were right with  Him and the heart is everything (II  Chron. xvi> 9; I Sam. xvi, 8).  Reading and exposition of the word  of God ars the great need of souls everywhere, and verse 8 seems to cover  it simply and fully, "They read in the  book in the law of God distinctly and  gave the sense and caused them to I  understand the reading." In Deut.!  xxvii. 8; Hab. ii, 2, the instructions  were to write plainly that those reading might-run-.and'tell.. The way of  Baruch in Jer. xxixvi, 8, is a good way,  "Reading in the book the words of  the Lord in the Lord's house." Just  the word of God without note or comment or explanation has often  .wrought the/salvation of a soul by the  power of the..Holy Spirit. Sometimes  the Lord uses the human instrument  to open up the word more fully, as in  the case of Philip and the Ethiopian  who said to him,, "How can I understand except some man should guide"  me?" (Acts vii, 30, 31). On the resurrection day the Lord Jesus expounded  or interpreted the Scriptures to the  two men with whom He walked to  Emmaus nnd the Rnme evening opened the understanding of the disciples  that they might.understand tlie Scriptures (Luke xxiv, 27, 44, 45).  The words of the Lord, in the power I  of the Spirit, as Ezra and the Levites |  taught the people, convinced them of j  sin, and they wept, but the same spirit who convinces of sin also convinces  of righteousness (John xvi, 8-10) and  shows thot where there is true penitence there oke the blotting out, of sin  and the imparting   of   perfect righteousness,  so that one  can  say,  "In  tho Lord havo I  righteousness    and  strength" (Isa. xliii, 25; xlv, 24). Compare II Oor. v, 21; Rom. x", 4.    Our  lesson chapter   is   a   seventh month  chapter (verses 2, 14), beginning with  tho feast of trumpets nnd ending with  the feast of tabernacles, but between  thn two camo tho grunt day of atonement (Lov. xxiii, 24, 27, 34), tho only  truo ground of all roal joy (Lev. xvH,  11; Gal., iii, 13).    "Mourn   not   nor  weep; neither bo yo grieved; neither  bo yo sorry" (vorss 0, 10, 11), reminds  uh of the words of tho Lord Jesus to  penitent Rinuors,    "Son,    ho of good  cheer; daughter, bo of good    cheer"  (Matt.  i-<, 2, 22, R,  V.).

Young   Welsman said he  would  like  to  play   both   well.    But|  Krause persuaded him to drop the violin and iake up the piano in earnest.  This he did, at first,, with some mis:  givings.

WILLIAMS'   PINK  ���������"' PILLS^V7  Chorea, or as it is more generally  known, St. Vitus dance, is a disease  that usually attacks the young children, though oluer persons may, be  afflicted with it. Its most common  symptoms are a twitching of the  muscles of the face and limbs. As  the disease progresses thisA.twitching  takes the -form of spasms; in Which  the jerking motion may be confined  to the head, or all the limbs may be  affected. X The patient���������: is ��������� frequently  unable to hold anything in the hands  or to walk" steadily, and in severe  cases even the speech is affected.: The  disease is due to debility of the  nerves and is always cured by ADr.  Williams' Pink Pills, which enrich the  blood, tone and .strengthen the;nerves  will give you more V practical and de.  finite results than a whole lot of dosing with internal medicines.

Creston Hotel  'X'SnStS  &sgeg@&vmns  Y  MOVE TOWARD CO-O PBRATION  The Crestoa Valley fruit growars* are now preparing to  work along mutual service ideas. The executive committees  of the Fruit aud Produce Association and the Farmers* Institute have already met and outlined some plan of incorporat  ion and within the next week something tangible in the way  I real co-operation will have been accomplished.    Furthermore the Board of Trade has had placed before it an amendment which provides for the  seating of five fruit growers in  its councils so that matters pertaining to the valley may  be  worked out on a  co-operative basis.    The  Review believes  that both are common sense moves. That commerce and bus.  iness in this Valley needs mutuality has been our stand from  the first and we believe that it has never   been practiced  in  its true sense in the Valley heretofore.    There have been too  many organisations, each afraid of "stepping on the others,  toes*'. The combination of the two fruit and farming  organizations into one strong working body will, we believe,soon be  appreciated as a business asset.  A couple.of fruit growers have asked The Review to_re-  *ract its statements of previous weeks that they have not been  operating on a co-operative basis.    We cannot see our   way  clear to make any retraction as these further moves towards  incorporation and the welding together of the growers iu the  two main organizations, is clear evidence that many of the  ;ranchers have not been wholly satisfied.    We  were told  as  contradiction 6f our statements that 90 per cent   of the  fruit  growers in the Valley are selling through the sales "agent of  the Fruit and Produce A -soeiation.    Does that imply however that 90 per cent of the  produce in this   Valley  ?s  sold  through the organization?    Do these growers in the  organ-  ization represent 90 per cent of  the  production  or do they  ; only represent from 65 to 75 per cent of the fruit in the Valley?  We believe that in carrying out the incorporation or iu  future amalgamation the organization or company should be  xoo per cent strong if it is possible to adjust the rules of the  organization on such a plane that ail can coincide.  At the same time that we are asked to make a retraction  we are told that the Fruit Growers' Association has always  had so much to attend to that it has had "no time to meet  With the Board of Trade" on matters affecting the Valley.  We hope that this is not the prevailing opinion among the  fruit growers and that the amendment placed defore the  : Board of Trade requesting five truit growers to meet witb  it in its sessinns will be listened to with an ear to the importance of ihe request.   '������������������  ������������������   We hava been accused of being antagonistic to the fruit  growers.   Nothing is further from the facts in the case.    As  ,. a scatter of fact the recent combination of the wo newspapers in Creston was effected for the sole purpose of giving the  ranchers and townspeople a newspapes which would be devoted to the good of the valley and   not to personal fights.  Further we consider that the fruit growers are the backbone  of this district-this   Creston    Valley-and   we   will   work  with might and main for their advancement. We know that  the totvn could not survive without the hardy  ani earneai  ranchers that surround it; neither do we have any  faith in  in tne loudly spoken assertion of a couple would-be leaders  iii the ranching fraternity, that the Valley could progress  ���������without the town.   Every community must have  its basis  * *>f operation���������its clearing house as it were���������and the Creston  Valley ranchers need the town with its blacksmith shops, its  hotels* its merchants of all descriptions, its railway station  and its freight yards.    It is folly to think otherwise.    Aside  from the commercial side of the question the town serves  the ranchers in a social way.  . We again say that The Creston "Review is here to serve  the fruit raising interests first-other things arc of secondary  importance to the present management, It has been suggested by one of the ranchers Lhal the fruit growers be given a  column in The Creston Review devoted to the producing interests in this Valley. We had intended suggesting the  same thing to the fruit growers after they had decomc incor-  porated And as soon as the fruit growers see their way clear  to tnttr into the matter we will gladly give over a column,  two columns or whatever they have in the interests of the  community. The only thing that we insist is that there  shall be no personalities enter into these columns.

Philip O. Hayman, (Vicar.)  IDAHO FAVORS  RECLAMATION  (Continued from page 1)  with a visit by the Idaho people, their  side of the question will he listened to  with great interest.  In the letter which the ranchers sent  to Mr. Kent he was told of the scheme  to put locks iu the narrows at the mouth  of Kootenay Lake and this will probably be considered by the American deA  velopers before they come here to discuss the matter. Locks at the end of  the lake would cost very little more and  the end would be attained without involving the sections that want reclamation iu several trig lawsuit's!' The power  and development people in the vicinity  of Nelson have already told Oreston  that they will fight y any attempt to.  lower the level of the lake and the lqck  system appears to the majority of people  to he the most feasible at this time.  epa  For Gentiemen  Leather Collar Boxes 'Books  Fancy Buttons for ^ests  Wallets Inkstands  King Cutter Razors  Gillette Razors Shaving cMirrors  Military Brushes  Travelling Sets Thermos Flasks  Razor Straps  Shading Brushes 5hal>ing Sets  Tobacco Zfars        Pipe ^acks  Save this list for aid in  selecting.

Addressing the National Home  Reading Union at their annual meeting at Caxtpn Hall, Westminster.  England, the other day, Mr. Birrell  said they must remember that they  were,a society of readers, not author-,  that they belonged to the class wh������>  had to pay for everything, lu'e other  people were the producers. The consumers ultimately had to pay for  everything.  Authors wan p dangerous class, a  class to be a little cautious about.  The world was full of good words  about books, the beatitude of rending, the inestimable value of books;  but they must remember that k11 the  beautiful descriptions were by  authors. (Laughter.) It made one a  iittle suspicious���������it was like a brewer recommending beer, or a distiller  some particular blend.  He recalled an instance of a book  being prefaced- by a collection of tiue  things said about books, but the stuffing was knocked out of it by tiie  hiding, "Opinions of Authors/*  (Laughter.) This society taught them  how to read to improve their'minds.  Ail great writers were not great renders. Some of the greatest author-)  were the least bookish ��������� John B'i i-  yan, laaak ' Walton, George Borrow,  and even Shakespeare.  It was a mistake to think that the  pursuit of a single subject led to narrow-mindedness, because the mure a  subject wus pursued the more was it  fouud to be allied to some other subject, such as law and history. Mathematics, he was told, was identical  with poetry. (Laughter.) Science was  a fertile field for Uie loftiest kind  ot  LUMBER  WASTE  FOR  PULPWOOD  .Practical   Economy     and     Utilization  of Wood Waste is Urged by  Forestry Department  For  the  purpose  of  manufacturing  the. four  hundred    and    seventy-five  thousand tons of wood pulp produced  in Canada in 1910 nothing was used*  except-logs of various species; Vwhich  as our timber supply    decreases    are  becoming  valuable  for   lumber    and  other-uses.    No  slabs or  other  sawmill waste was reported as being converted into wood pulp, by neglecting  which practice, Canada is losing greatly.    During 1909 in the United States  six  per  cent,  of  the  total Apulpw-bod  [consumption was from slabs and   mill  .trimmings.     If   economy    had    .been!  'practiced to the same extent in Canada during the year 1910,     as much  pulp  might have been     produced as  from    thirty-six    thousand    cords yof  wood and not one pulp log need have  ibeen cut. This would have made tweiu  I ty   per   cent,   more   pulp   than   Nova  i Scotia produced  in 1910.  j    Looking  at the  subject    from    another view point the gain mightlmve  been much greater.    Over one-half of  tlio five  billion feet, of lumber cut in  1910 passed  through  mills  at centres  of largo population    where    the    slab  waste of one-h'H cord to every thousand feet of lumbn' might have been i  (saved   from   tho   incinerators.        One  I cord of pulpwoo'l will produce'Vat least,  [one-half ton of pulp so that one and  !a quarter  million  cords of slabs ob-  ] tiiinod   would   have   produced   nt  the  [lowest    estimate     six    hundred    and j  1 twenty-five thousand tons of pulp pro-  jdueed in Canada in 1910.   The sooner  ! such  practical  economy  and    utiliza-   w  _     _ ._         ! tion   of  wood   waste     commences the  rmagiViation7the'inore a man pursued [longer will Canada have an adequate  science the more poetic and imagina- \ supply of pulpwood.

The shows will be held in the splendid  new horse show bundmg erected this  .year at the fair grounds on April Oth  to ,12th inclusive.  yy While the 'foregoing    shows are in  ��������� pfogrefas, the Sheep Breeders'- association, the Swine.

In fact, with favorable weather conditions, the prospects  are that the attendance will eclipse  anything  ever seen  in the  Canadian  . west.  As   a   further   attraction,   arrange-  ; ments   are   being  made   by   Manager  t Richardson, of the Calgary Exhibition  I association, to haye prominent authorities on live stock, breeding and  kindred subjects deliver lectures dur-  ' ing the shows. These addresses wiil  be illustrated by specimens of live  animals, carcasses and lantern slides.  Next year, and on succeeding years,  tihe fat stock show -Awili' be held in De-  ceiriber. This',' it is estimated, will enable the management and the breeders  to devote their time more fully to. the  event, and they claim that they will  be able to put on an excellent exhibition.  "If the success that has attended  our horse show, bur fat stock show,  our live stock show and other such  events can be taken7as a criterioq- of  what can be accomplished with the  co-operation of the Alberta live stock  breeders,-it can safely be predicted  that within the next three years our  fat stock-show will be second only to  that /held at Guelph," declared E. L.  Richardson recently, when explaining  the plan of the various organizations.  "Experience;in the past has shown  us that when the horse show, the cattle show and sale have come together  they have attracted so much of the. attention of the breeders that the fat  sto.qk show has not attainedHlie prominence that it undoubtedly will-when  held at a different time. This will  permit the breeders to devote their entire attention to the horse show and  the cattle show in April and to the fat  stock show in December." A  It has been customary to have the  sale of bulls commence at 1.30 o'clock  in the afternoon of the second day of  the show. In -April the sale will start  at 9.30 o'clock on the morning of,the  ��������� second day of the show/April 10th,  This will permit the horse show building to be used for    the   sale in the  , mortiing and for the horse show in the  afternoon.
