N Iho answer 'was the natural one..  "But," conttavfcd the rancher,  "say the^ proposition - involved such  mighty obstacles as probable or be-  fclieved injury to vested interests,  (sectional Jealousy and local disinterestedness, what would the men of  finance do V\r  ' "Such little things wouldn't   stop  them," was the answer.    ,  ^   There was eouexderable interchange  -ot    inquiries ^and   answers    of    this  aaturu but ths gist    of the thought  which,   the   rancher    was   trying to  drive home was that if the Provincial Government w spent    a couple ol  * hundred thousand, dollars in reclaiming the lowlands   fronting - CreBton���������  lowlands'  ^ which ,   are"    provincially  , owned���������it^could:'in *as few' years _sell  I   > r <M. v   <  ! oft the entire* acreage at a profit4 oi  ^methi-f^^jUkeJ -^ three ^ojiars    for  eves^ one   its, spent"' an<������ ttould ever  afterwards reap. ^ubstantial":taxes. on  improved lands.-IwMch it i's noW hold-  i, ing and which,are worthless as   far  '��������� au������ assets go.        ;   ^ ^ \ ' v  there Should be 'no difficulty, in ' ,at  l$aaf; ^e'til^igla^ommission0 appointed  to study the conditions and make a  report as to its feasibility.  There are so many features involv-  od���������so many sides to the question of  reclaiming the lands���������that the matter will require considerable thought  and study for those wbo say they  are going'^to push tbe matter -to a  finish.

It  i Is still ������aklng. Ior reclamation but up  until this time there has been only a  half-hearted   interest   taken   in   the  , matter.    Everybody who is acquain  ted,with CreBton knows that the re  claiming ot the lowlands would mean  41,,, triple   population   tor   the  .town  within five years, a general increasi  in values and the introduction ot    e  new^'torm   ot   agriculture   into thi  valley.    It would   be an all aroum  oeneflt   for   everybody.     Oompanlci  hove come; into tho valley with   th.

The land  as    it    now    stands    is    practically  worthless except as pasture land and  for late summer hay.     It returns no  revenue to tbd governments at present  and there  are some    35,000 acres in  the lowland area.     The minute that  this vast tract is reclaimed it   will  be worth over    $100 an acre.      It is  Lhe richest kind of black  muck  soil  and the loam    is    several- feet det*p.  For. dairy farming,    for celery growing, for potato    growing,    for practically everything except fruit, it'- ig  the best class of ground.   "Its Value  to the government, its worth to the  town, its benefits for every consumer  of dairy-.products and vegetables  '"in  the Kootenays are most 'obvious.,-.--.

In the nbseuce nf Slim both Bud and  McKee had attained a feeling or security in tbe matter of the Terrill murder.    McKee had already ventured to  use some of his share of the robbery  in ^gambling.     Hud   bad   uot  yet  convinced himself either of the right or  the advisability of spending, his share.  Both conscience and fear advised bins  to keep tue blood  inouey intact.    He  carried it with him wherever he went  and became in time quite pleased with  himself because of his compunctions in  doing  so.     He   was  even   Pharisaical  about McKee's gambling.     No;  when  hia mind bad become clear about keeping it ho would make an honest use of  ft,  such  as  investing  in   a   saloou   in  Florence.

If  you  are  in  this condition you need the new, good  blood of health that has been given  to thousands of sufferers by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.    These pills banish  all the ailments    arising   from   poor  blood, tone up the system and make  weak men and women well and strong.  Mis's Elizabeth    Campbell,    Almonte,  Ont., says: "I was living in Pembroke  at the time my health failed me.    I  kept growing weaker every day until I  at last grew so weak I could not walk  up stairs  without help,  and   I  could  not go 'down  street    without    sitting  down and resting.     My   mother   got  quite anxious about roe and took me  to a doctor who said he was quite sure  he could restore my health.   He gaye  me a bottle of medicine,  and I continued its use until I had taken four  bottles, but instead of getting stronger  I  was  growing Weaker  all  the time,  and was only' a mere shadow of my  former  self.    My  parents  believe'd  I  was in a  decline  and could not get  better.     My  mother     had  heard   so  much Dr. Williams'    Pink Pills that  she decided I ought to try them.    I  did not notice much change until  I  had taken five or six boxes, when a  decided improvement set in, and t from  that on I grew stronger and stronger  each day, until through    a continued  use of thp pills I was baok to my old-  time  health  and  strength.

Members of Parliament in Canada  travel fr������P nf cost on the railways of  "the Dominion,, and the words "member-, of Parliament" include 'both  Senators and members 'of the'Hou?e  of Common; but -there is this; important difference���������while Seisatdi^^fe  given their certificates of tTanspoirtAf  tion upon their appointment, an$l retain them for life, or as long afithey*  are mentally and peculiarly, qffaljfiedl,'  the members of the Holise of" Com-  mons have to yield up-their ^certifi-  cate? the dav they are defeated at the'  polling booths, or as soon thereafter  as their conscience permits. > This'  privilege is secured to the legislators "  by an amendment made to the Railway Aot in 1903, when it was provided  that all companies in receipt of subsidies irom the Dominion shall furnish  free transportation on any of their  trains u>_ members _oi_Jhe Senate .and -  House of Commons with their" baggage.  The working out of this airange-  ment is quite interesting. The certificates which are issued by the Clerk3  of the two Houses of-Parliament are  usually for a calendar year, but in a  year such, as this, when there is a  general election and a complete overhauling of the personnel of the House  of Commons, tfiere has to b? a recalling of the certificates issued to those  who are defeated and the issuance of  new certificates to their successors.  As the result of the general telections,  'vhich took place in Canada on September 21 last, there are 82 men who  were not in the last House, and who  had to be provided for in the matter  of railway passes.  Accordingly, just as soon as the result of the elections wps made detinue, the Clerk of the House of Commons, through H. P. Macdonell, clerk  of transportation, sent out notifications to the defeated members asking  them to return their passes, and "to  the credit of Canadian legislators it  must be said that less than half a  dozen of ,them had to ba written to a  second time, although the majority of  them understood that' the passes were  good for the balance of the calendar  yeaT, and did not realize that their  defeat at the polls carried with it the  loss of their privilege of free travel.  As each canceled pass was returned,  it was replaced by another in the  name of the successful candidate, and  tHe railway companies were notified  that certificate No. 0120. for instance.  had been replaced by certificate No.  0230. The result i* that if any defeated member of Parliament attempts to  travel upon his pass after the company has been notified, the conductor  takes the pass and compels the ex-  l<*gislator to pay his fare like any ordinary individual.      , ,   ,  Previous to the passage of the free  pass law, the members *of both Houses  Were given an allowance*?of -ten cents  a mile from their homes to' the capital  and back .again, and as most of th'*rn  traveled upon passes anyway this  ��������� amounted vto a substantial addition, to  their, indemnity. But fcoty they, are  tteC altogether bereft -of 'financial'cqn-  sol&tibn.

Out of ������ total  ol eight exhibits C^stos, through its two energeticJanchers,  bro&ghtilmsk lout first prizes. That is a good showing.!  One out ol every two exhibits proved that Creston's apples  are better than the products of nearly 100 other districts in  this Dominion and the United States.  Creston Valley apples made good, bnt what of the people  of Creston Valley r   We are fully aware of the fact that  many of the orchards ol Creston Valley are just beginning  to reach their prime and others have a couple of years to  grow before they will be ready for commercial or show purposes.   There are, however, about 50 members of the Fruii  Growers' Association.   This seems that there must be about  50 orchards in the valley bringing forth full-grown apples  each year; thus we can strike the ratio.    One out of two  apples sent to the show won a prize;   yet only  one out oi  twenty-five of those who had good apples sent them. to Spokane.1 _  No new community like Creston has ever come to the! ��������������������������������������� *������ -w *"��������������������� to be ������������-  -    .      m/m , .       .    ��������� .,      _i ; *l sidered that those who have renewed  front and made itself known throughout the world unless it  ^ ^^^ {or ^ handling of the  work will want tbe best engineers in  the province to give their advice.  Six miles away from Creston along  the banks of the Kootenay, the ranchers and moneyed men of the United  States have done some excellent work  are  spending and   have spent thousands  of dollars on the work with good're-  eulls.      They   have   a   trifle better  conditions under which to work; having   higher   ground   fronting on the  river but   their   task  'is not   easy:-*  They however see- -that* tiie reclaimed1  lands will bring them immense direct'  profits -next ��������� yeariviand   in years to������  come   and   they    are ..going   ahead  spending money tp make money.  The executive committee of the  Conservative Association will pro-  bably be called together in the, near  future to discuas the matter and it  will then call the public meeting.  The ranchers on the other'side of  the 'river are taking a particular" interest in the lowlands just' now and  they along with those on this side  are doing much missionary work in  the interests -. of the reclamation  scheme. They are ..endeavoring. to  get the people filled with enthutiasm  in the matter and they will then  send someone to Victoria to carry  their fight into the legislative bodies  there. It is doubtful if the Provincial Government will enter into a  dyking scheme aB they have had' a  couple of knotty problems to untangle in other localities without much  return, but tbey should be able to  8co the direct advantages to the government and peoplo in having the  land mado suitable for agriculture.

The reclamation of the lands along  the river looks easy to the ordinary  layman in an engineering sense    but  had sagacious brains and stalwart hands pushing it  forward  under the banner of cooperation.    Creston  needs to   come  together; the good work that its ranchers have accomplished  individually will become the better when  planned  together,  when ideas and experience are exchanged  and the wisdom ^   and prestige of all are put behind the effort of each.     Cres- [along reclamation lines.    They  ton lost good valuable advertising because its  ranchers  did  not combine to make tbe display at Spokane the best that it  has ever sent south.   It is no disparagement of the ranchers  to say this���������they are earnest in their endeavors and are pros.  p-erous as individuals, because they, have the ideal land and  the,energy-to push their own interests in an individual way,  but tney could not see very far ahead.   Let ns point cut one  instance of a community getting well advertised through its  ^dv^ayll- &f&iivE'.\ ������������������'y^' "��������� \ \'\ ]y^.  There is a new apple country up along the Arrow lakes  which had the foresight to send a big display to the big show.  One'exhibitor alone sent 15 displays and he won  10 prizes.  Thevcommunity as a whole had some 30 separate exhibits at  the |show.     Furthermore, the ranchers   paid a raan to go  to the how and take care oi their exhibits and to boom their  little vaUev.   Through the exchanges we find that that com-  munity has had articles printed in newspapers as. far east as  New York in the States, and Montreal' Casada. .. It is very  probable that the articles were copied n tne journals of the  Motherland snd othctr countries. There was,nothing unusual  about the display from the Arrow lake country. It was energy and co-operation that brought results. We will estimate that the exhibiting and advertising expenses were about  ^50. This Is ^ sma^ sum compared with the number of  * settlers that the advertising will draw to that: community.  This Arrow lair* community got columns of free and convincing advertising through its 30 displays. Creston got  practically no mention although it had,a higher average of  winnings than nine-tenths ofthe other, exhibitors. Bonners  Ferry, a few miles away, won the district prize through its  determination to make a showing. Creston, with every bit  as good frnit growing land, got nothing. The men who did  send exhibits are to be commended. As for the rest���������it is  time for th-am te begin thinking the matter over.  ������P������  RAILWAY  EASTERN  G ANADA  Low Round Trip Rates  TO "  Ontario, Quebec  and Maritime  Provinces  THE CANADIAN  BANK  OF  COMMERCE  -     SIR EDMUND WALKER, C.V.O., LL.D., D.C.d, PRESIDENT   ^  ALEXANDER LAIRD, GENERAL MANAGER  CAPITAL, -  $10,000,000  REST, -   $8,000,000  THE SAYINGS BANK DEPARTMENT  of The Canadian Bank of" Commerce "will receive-'deposits of $i and..-,  upwards, on which interest is allowed at current rates.

Ot the tnree hundred and m<>re local unions in the province, 150 have- passed resolutions  asking for remedies of some kind, and  the majority of *the others will follow  within' tne next month or two.  ln the main, tne chaiges are that  the present system of hail insurance,  .through   the   treasury   department  of  the  government,  is  inadequate.    Delay in* *acknowiedging premiums and  ..paying liabilities,   unsatisfactoy    and  inadequate   inspection    and    slothful  "agents are a few of the charges urged  against  the   present   system   of   hail  insurance by the farmers in the province.

F. A. here. Hail insurance has  been a stock bone of contention since  before 1906. Mr. Fream is at present  at work preparing a synopsis of the  expressions of the various local  unions,' to be" presented to the annual  convention in Red Deer on January 16.     '    . *  By the present system postmasters  and secretaries of school districts are  authorized to collect premiums at the  rate of'25 e'ents per acre; to secure the  maximum indemnity of $4 per acre.  The farmer must pay a commission  of 50 i cents to the agent to cover /the  cost of remitting the money to Edmonton, and the farmer is not entitled to the benefits until, acknowledgment of the receipt of the money is  received from the treasury department. Herein lies the first batch of  grievances. The commission "paid to  the agent is not sufficient to induce  - him to take a careful interest in the  * W9rk; the indemnity is not sufficient  .' to  secure   the   farmes   agaiuts   bank-  * ruptcy in severe Oases; the government is so slow m making acknowledgments that many farmers are Victims of the storm before their insurance is secured.  It is also .(.declared that the inspects  ors are too few and the territory too  large, and that this results iri serious  delay. v In several districts inspectors  are charged with " skipping^ sftjnei'i^.  their, territory; and of, making' unneS'  cessary trips. t Notice of'hailyUiust be  sent by the farmer to the ^department,  by,registered mail; the  then forwards lists to. the inspector,  and delay and much useless travelling  is occasioned by the carelessness of  the clerks of the department.

Continuing his  story,. Mr., Park said that Davidson  often * visited - his place, where Aie  would read magazines and papers that  happened to be lying around. The  reason for so frequent visits was -that  Davidson could not read or sew in his  own habitation.'. ..The last visit was on  Friday previous to finding,the body,  when Davidson had spent the .day and  night with Park.

The neighbors were at once notified  and four of them gathered at the home  of- the dead' man. The bouy was  searched rby Park and $65 in bills was  found, iri, his pockets.
