"Old Man" - Simpson jdubbed Cranbrook' the banana' belt. He had reason,  for so doing. On Thursday night last  while we were enjoying" the gentle  music of the raindrop and- the Cranbrook farmer was bubbling over with  thankfulness for 'jbhe "showers of  blessing," our neighboring city of  Creston, where the big red apple  grows, was covered* with a mantle of  nicoj white, soft, -fUsi_y beautiful snow.  As the train pulled.-in from the*west  on Friday afternoon several of the  passenger coaches'rwere gaily decorated in their garb of white. Jos. Jackson, our genial conductor, was asked  what it meant, a"tad said, "That, my  l>oy, is jU-ojlq the ," beautiful Creston  v a_._ey, where everything and everybody is pure���������pure as the ' 'driven'  snow. Jim Doyle" or the editor of il-e  Creston Review caii give you further  particulars."���������Cranbrook Herald.  These conductors will have their  little joke, but there is some satisfaction in knowing thstt the laugh is not  always on the other fellow. Occasionally the fun is at-tbe expense of the  pasteboard - puncher���������as was th������ case  on the Creston platform, a good deal  less than a year ogo.  The westbound.,express wasn't late  on this particular day. The man of  the blue suit and brass buttons appeared to be enjoying his usual good health  but he had a telegram he wanted sent-  from Creston," and, the M.P.P.-train  commander approached the assistant  then working.at the depot. Here's  the conversation- that ensued:  "Here, youngrfellov., give this wire'  j to Bob and ask him to shoot it out as  | soon as possiblei**.   *  "Here comes,Bob -down the plat-  form- now,?- yo**4 "cah 1 give it, to-Jhun  yourself I"  '/Getting up in the world, eh ? Don't  deliver telegrams no ruo.e "*  _ "Say, Caven, if you'd make as much  noise at Victoria as you're making  around this platform a whole lot of  people might get to know Cran brock  wasn't represented by a cigar store  Indian!"  [If we were to publish the remarks  that Mr. Caven wanted to make to  this last thrust, Tom would lose the  solid Baptist vote at the forthcoming  provincial contest.  R. Hood lost one of his good milch  cows one day last week during calf-  birth. ���������  i*  The gophers are very much in evidence hereabouts. The wild rores are  also Wi������j������.x us once more.  T. Butterfield, Duck Creek's peerless  booster, was a Sunday visitor here.  Something gone wrong in god's country^ surely.  A. Matthews,Victor Carr and W. A.  Pease were at Creston on Thursday  with horses to offer the army remount  purchasers.       ���������*-  Ranchers are doingf considerable debating as r,o -ootietbey the fiats will be  flooded this year. In 1903 there was  no overflow.  Andy Miller, fire guardian, assisted  by Clarence Pease,  spent Friday and  Saturday across the river burning an  area of slartpng on the Burnett place.  i  Andy Strahl was a passenger east on  Wednesday, to   Spok������ne.      .He   will  visit U.S. points in quest of a job.  W.  A. Pease will take charge of his ranch  while he is absent.  Alice Siding was invaded by Creston  folk on Tuesday *afternoon, when a  Red Cross tea was given at the hoitie  of Mrs. Audy Miller, who was assisted  by her.raother, Mrs. M. Young. Owing to threatening weather the attendance was notqnfte up to expectations.  It.is with genuine regret that- the  Siding this week says goodbye to Mr.  Our Old-Timers  Strike Some Luck  wao are   returnincr  home in Nova Scotia,  io  their former  Tliey have re-  nine years and  sided here for almost  better neighbors and citizens this sec-  *tion neVer had."

This was received in a military  hospital whoro ho was surrounded^ by  wounded soldiers from the front. This  was not his only oxperioneo which reminded him graphically of the groat  conflict. Ho was a passenger on the  homeward trip on tlio Cymric, which  sailed from Liverpool in company with  tho iU-fatod Falaba which was torpedoed and went down with scores of hor  pasuengers and crew.  "The following statement of the captain of the Cymric will serve to ��������� illustrate the narrowness of their escape :fc  Wo were less than twenty miles from  the Falaba when her wm.leaa atai'U.d  sending the 8.0.8. for destroyers.

President Reid wus in the chair and  the attendance was larger than usual.  The minutes were adopted as read.  There were no accounts to pass, and  the list of communications was not  lengthy, though among these was ono  from a gentleman desirous of operating a moving picture theater in Creston. ���������  The secretary was authorized to  write, the C.P R. officials for* permission'for the board to erect a couple of  display, cabinets on the depot platform  wherein will bo shown seasonable  samples of what the Valley can produce in the way of fruits and vegetables.   ���������  The Great Northern Railway wilf  also be communicated with, to ascertain, if possible, if the railway company has finally decided to abandon  their right-of-way botweep here and  Port Hill.

Review readers who can recall Ores-  sis years ago. will read  deal of interest the subjoined article from the Vancouver Province of May 4th. The C. P. Reil mentioned in the story was in the real-  estate business here in 1908 , and A.  McGuire was also a C_eston resident  at the same time running the livery  barn nowowns'd by Dan Spiers/Here's  the story:  ���������'A short news dispatch in the Province of last Friday tells of the success  of A. MuGuhe in \.be Uhisana district.  The name of this camp is almost forgotten in Vancouver, although at the  time of its discovery there was more  than a passing Hurry, and prospectors  stampeded to the new diggings. The  excitement was enhanced by .Dr. D. D.  Cairnes,. government geologists, who  returned to this city shortly after the  first reports of the placer finds harl  been made, and who Verified their importance. But of late there has been  nothing heard of Chisana, and lo i_t.������u-  of a man making good there is like*  hearing a voice from the grave."  "A. McGuire .is   well known  in this  city,   particularly   in  timber, circles.  His home was in Mission City, and he  was interested in   various logging enterprises along the west coast of the  province.     "When the Chrisana boom  started he caught the fever, and succeeded in  interesting C. P. Reil to the  extent that the* latter 4*gvub-staked"  him for the trip north.    Mr. Reil wiii  be remembered    as   being   connected  with the National Finance Company  -wfeen that company was^at^he height, ,  of its success.   Later he opened offices'  in the Dominion  building, but at the  r>. ������c<_.nt- f-.irn.. i������i _ p^i-lino- .n Seattle.'*  * ..      .     - .   _...   _   _.  "The first winter that McGuire spent  in Chisana he had a hard tiTife. In a  letter to Mr. Reil he stated that he  had traded his rifle for a sack of flour  early in the winter, and was subsisting on rabbits, with flour to thicken  the stew, He lived all winter in a tent  with the thermometer often down Lo  40 degrees below zero. One letter was  particularly pessimistic. McGuire was  blue. Rabbits and flour were getting  on his nerves, and in addition he had  to carry wood about ������ r:.ile above tim  ber line to thaw out the ground on  which he was sinking. This was in his..  third hole, and he had been driven out  by water in all the others without'"  striking pay dirt, But the bull-dog  determination'of tho man was shown  in one short phrase in which he stated  that he was either going to leave his  bones iii the district or make a stake.  "Miv Reil,;.who' prior to tho receipt  of this letter thought that his* partner  was well supplied with the necessaries  of life, spent somo $200 in sending in  evaporated and dessicated foods by  registered mail in four pound packages.  It was impossible to get freight, express or common mail into the country lit that time, but registered mail  had to be carried, and it is undoubtedly duo to the fact that expense was no  object to Mr. Reil when the life of his  partner wi.is at stake that McGuire lived through the winter and was able to  prosecute hie prospecting to a, Muiu.esH-  ful issue."-  "One hundred thousand .. dollars,  pvon whon it has to be divided up with  a grubstaking partner looks like a big  thing, but it in-oaf e to nay thnt not one  of his friends who, beforo tho end of  the week will bo shaking hands with  him here, would have endured the.  hmvlHliips and gone through the sonl-  Honrln'g experiences which luul fallen  to McGuire*s lot during the past two  yearH,  for  the   whole   stake.

"That is my nume," interposed Mr.

am  as   white   as   you  are."
"You don't look it,1' said one man

"that is all we want���a fair trial; let

"Or else go on appealing and appealing from one court to another for the

A' low murmur ot hate and rage
echoed this declaration and.not a man
there but looked at the two prisoners
as though to see them already suffering. Hugh held himself upright and
cried loudly:

The heroism displayed by a dving

thwarting the enemy forms one of the
most tragio incidents of the war. T3ie
aviator, a lieutenant observer in the
French army, with a sergeant as
pilot, was ordered to locate a German
concealed battery, whose fire had become exceedingly troublesome and
had inflicted considerable damage.

The sun was now near to setting, a

pale and rather dazed. His hands
were bound behind him and his
mouth was bleeding, as if from a
heavy blow. At a little distance
stood Eira. Her clothing was torn

wondered vaguely what they were for,

The average soldier is a pretty  free spender.

Looked at from every possible  angle Cranbrook is the ideal location for this all-Kootenay brigade  concentration camp It has plenty  of the right sort of country to train  troops in. there is plenty of good  water available, and every other  modern convenience to make camp  life attractive. In the matter of  transportation facilities no point in  these parts can begin to compare  with it.  Considering what a camp of this  nature located at Cranbrook would  mean to Creston commercially, and  being convinced of that city's all-  adaptability for the purpose, our  citizens should throw every possible  energy into securing the camp for  our eastern neighbor���������and it isn't a  bit too early to get busy on the job.  Back in Harness  "Old Man" Simpson, who until  live years ago owned and ably  edited the.

(liven   the    <'ii*<ulation   Much   ii  was approximately 14,000 carloads.  The Yakima district shows, possibly, the most pronounced falling l  off. Last year this centre ���������had a  yield of 6,000" carloads, while for  1915 hardly 4,000 cars will be available, even under ideal conditions.  In Wenatehee there will also be a  falling off, though hardly &,s pronounced as in Yakima. Jonathans  are light in both these districts,  although the same trees bore a light  crop in 1914 also.  Hood River may register ae$ high  as a year ago. Spokane reports a  shortage. Rogue River Valley of  southern Oregon had a very light  crop in 1914 on account of drouth,  and it is now feared that there will  be another shortage of water and  crop.  While there are still many things  that may happen to cut down the  crop, very little can happen to increase it. Toward the end of April  hundreds of growers in some of  these districts were lighting frosts  nightly, while in others the battle  with blight is serious and the issue  problematic.  In the Okanagan tho fruit crop  will at least be equal to the heavy  yield of last year and, us young  orchards are continually coming into  bearing or increasing thoir output  it seems probable that the season's  shipments of fruit will ovon exceed  those of 1914.

V  While the Allies policy of watchful waiting and preparation for the  advance is aggrevating to some as  yet tliere has been iio serious reason  to complain as to its soundness.  Germany's shortness of copper has  been noticed for some time; nitrates,  sulphur and other necessary ingredients for making explosives are  said to be woefully lacking, while  in the matter of reinforcemeiits she  must be getting hear the end of her  supply.  While the enemy is sacrificing  men and its none-too-abundant  supply of ammunition in a vain  attempt to break the British and  French lines, the Allies aro accumulating men and more men and the  necessary material for campaigning  on a large and persistont scale, and  when the order, "Up. guards, and  at them," does come we venture to  predict Berlin will bo reached even  more quiokly and with a smaller  list of casualties than by a premature rush against an at-presont  equally-strong and well-equipped  opponent. ,  Joss Willard didn't start iu. to  clean up Jack Johnson in tho first  round���������nor in tho fifteenth, either  ���������ho lot tho black boy wind" himself considerably before starting to  RiioooRsFnlly rush matters.

Symptoms:'The abnormally-swollen  thickened, distorted leaves from which  the disease takes its name are its chief  characteristics and cannot Avel! be  mistaken. The curling results from  a stimulation induced by a parasitic  fungus which grows within the cells of  the leaf. The cells of the tissues of.tbe  leaf develop thickened walls and increase in size aud number. The tissues  of the midrib do. not increase to aiiy  extent and the abnormalv growth of  the tissues on either side of the midrib  results in a puckering or curling, y As  ���������the greatest growth takes plotfe in the  tissues toward the upper side there is  ii tendency for the upper surface of an  infected,leaf to be convex. Twigs"are  also infectedi resulting in the twigs  being shorter than normally, decidedly thicker and of a whitish color.  dianSelkirksduring the winter of 1914-  1015, has been the lowest registered at  Glacier, where the highest precipitation generally' takes place, since ICOo-  1906: The fall this year was 19 feet 4  ihefic's'', tis" compared-'.with nearly. $5  feet last season; "A.record was/established for 1912-13 season, when 'moi-B  ttian 45 feet wasa'egistered. ���������  <.#1. .

Such trees set little  or no fruit but. usually leaf out again  so that by midsummer little sign of  the disease may be found. It js difficult to estimate the extent of the damage clone by an attack of this disease,  inasmuch as tho elfects on tho tree  from ono attack may last over several  years, and undoubtedly render tho  free more susceptible to the attacks of  other diseases and to winter killing.  Tho offects on the tree appear to do-  pond not only on the severity of the  attack, but also upon the vigor of tlio  tree, its location and the character of  the succeeding winter.  Cause: The dlRcaso in canned by a  paniNitic fungus known aw Expasam  doformans. Tho mycelium of tho fungus makes its way among the t.Hsues  and absorbos the juices needed for the  nutrition of the tree. Tho spores by  which the diseiiRo Ih reproduced from  under tho surfaco of infected leaves,  finally breaking through and imparting to the Hurfa<-o a frosted appearance.

It is  * breaking..: over ; the  far west,   where  personal*- liberty   and   self-indulgence  have been almost matters of .creed-  The   irresistible _ush   behind   the  wave is economic.   The organization  of business hnd industry, having realized   the ^eternal  truth ;that   self-indulgence, saps human force and lowers efficiency,   brings its powerful influence to bear.   The   instinct ot the  higher intelligence that self-denial is  tiie inspiration of achievement has expanded to kind    compulsion for the  lower.   More and more personal lib--  di'ty" for self is being sacrificed to uplifting restraint for others.  The davli oppression of a labor  body of low will power and strong  passions has brought prohibition to  tho South, to raise tho standard of  perfoimnnco and dieck tho excesses  of appetite.
