It appeal's to be almost cleaned out. On  Sunday there were twenty-eight anglers trying their iuck in the stream  and the day's catch hardly averaged  one each.

Biddulph and Roy  Currie are the latest from Creston to  sign on at Cranbrook for overseas service with the all-Kootenay Regiment.  This brings Creston's contribution to  this corps up to eight men.  It may interest you to know that  Foster, the weather prophet, who  quite often predicts things about  right, says June is to be a wet month,  after which things will clear up and  we .will have a warm dry summer.  With half a hundred at-one-time  residents of Creston on the firing line,  or preparing to get into action, Mayor  Little is about right in advising people not to believe more than half of  what you hear; and be sure that it's  the right half.  Barfing the little unpleasantness  last week with Saffron PetroshuK the  Canyon City Austrian, the'seven alien  enemies on Constable Forrester's list  are_ reporting regularly and on time.

Some of the Creston people were  camped on Kid Creek last week trying  to lure the speckled beauties from its  depths.  Te'd Maione of Creston was a caller  one day last week. He seemed to be  in a hurry for the west; after missing  513 he hit the ties.  Messrs. Hendron and Hayden of  Creston spent a night in Kitchener on  their way up Goat River in search of  Mr. Bruin, They expect to make their  head camp at the mouth of Red Fern.

P.  W. Foote is now a prisoner in Germany, at *. Giessen^ slightly wounded, and Stanley Watson" is out of  the fighting, also slightly wounded.  Foote was in the thick of the  fighting at Yprez on April 2_. In  a postal card dated April 28th,  which reached W. S. Watson this  week, Foote says:  "You have, no doubt, heard  what happened to us on the  24th. Well, I was taken prisoner, and am now at above address. Am slightly wounded  with a bullet in tbe shoulder,  but its nothing. We are well  treated here, and the food is  good. Shall be glad to hear  how things arc going on the  , ranch."

A.   CLARK    RECOMMENDS  DODD'S  KiDNEY  PILLS  Western  Man Tells Why  Dodd's Kidney Pills Are So Popular on the  Prairies  Homeglen, Alberta.��������� (Special).���������  Just why Dodd's Kidney Pills are so  popular on the prairies is shown by  the statement of Mr. H. A. Clark, a  well known resident of this  place.  "Since I came west." Mr. Clark  states, "I was often troubled with  my stomach aud back. Finally I  decided to try Dodd's Kidney Pills ana  before I had taken more than half  a box I was so much-benefitted that  I recommended them to a friend. He  also found them a benefit. 1 ani still  taking Dodd's Kidney Phis, i^would  not he without them."  In new countries bad water is ona  of the difficulties settlers have to light  and had water makes its lirst attactc  on the kidneys. To resist this attack  the Kidneys must be stimulated and  strengthened. Iu other words the  Kidneys need Dodd's Kiduey Pills.  By giving the Kidneys the help they  need people get new health and Dodd's  Kidney Pills add to their popularity.  ing.'- it was advisable in the autumn  to elect and specially store any biennial v.ols to be transplanted this  spring for seed production.  Fortuuately the European seed  ��������� crop-'"of 1913 Avas much above the  average, for practically all kinds.  Owing to previous shortage in supplies most Canadian seed houses had  increased their orders by 50 par cent.  or more and had received; full delivery. The excellent seed crop of  1914 was also harvested in spite of  war conditions and, although deliveries have beeu delayed and transportation excessiye, most seed .houses  have received the greater part if not  their contract orders.

As the  i silage was increased so was the  " meal ration, but the hay and straw  wero cut down.  In view of the above facts, it  would seem advisable for farmers in  the southern and centre portion of  Manitoba to grow corn and feed it  as silage as soon as they have the  capital to invest in a silc.  There are some districts in the  north where corn cannot be grown  successfully, because of the cool climate and excessive moisture and  where these conditions exist an- abundant crop of oats and peas can be  grown.  Where these crops are used for  this purpose, the mixture should be  sown as* soon as possible after the  oats for threshing have been put in.  One bushel of Golden Vine or Arthur  Peas and two bushels of Banner  Oats, per acre, makes a. good mixture.

We have noticed  their activities ever since the battle  of the Marne, and although they have  been rebuffed time and again this  seems not to have discouraged them  They are in evidence everywhere,  now at Washington, then at Rome,  then again at The Hague.  "In one place they have tried to  show how advantageous a separate  peace would- be to France. Germany  does not wish France any harm. No,  indeed! It admires France and could  almost love it!- In another -quarter  their proposition has concerned an immediate peace treaty between Russia  and Austria, based on the cession of  Gajicia to the former power andHhe  return of Bosnia and Herzegovina to  Serbia.  "Still another peace -arrangement  has been rumored' about, the parties  to it being the Allies- and Turkey.  The Sultan is supposed to have declared himself willing to lay down  arms on condition that Turkey be allowed to retain what is left of its  European possessions and that the  attempt to force he Dardanelles be'  abandoned * forthwith. The straits  would henceforth be open to merchant vessels of all nations without  any discrimination. As mediators the  Pope and President Wilson are most  frequently mentioned as the alleged,  sponsors of the various peace  schemes.  "There is only one of its enemies  with whom Germany never talks of  making separate peace, and that is  England. In one of its outbursts of  frankness,  which have become quite  uttered a few days ago the signincsnt  remark: 'Peace is impossible as long  as England, which makes war at the  expense of her allies' blopd,  refuses  to agree to it.'  "It is true that England spurns any  peace offers in the present situation,  but the same is also true about Russia and Franca. It might be well for  Germany to realize that it is only in  Berlin that signatures don't count ore.  treaties are considered mere scraps  of paper- On September 4 last* Great  Britain, Frai-ce ������.nd Russia made an  agreement to carry on this war in  unison to its end to conclude peace,  also in common, only after a complete  victory. This treaty will hold, and  it has' a bearing on Austria and Turkey no less than* on Germany.  "If, however, one of the powers  lighting on the German side should  acknowledge defeat and cease hostile  operations the Allies will, of course,  discontinue their attacks on it, but "no  peace negotiations will be opened  anyway until the" whole war is over.  And it will be only -at the conclusion  of the definite treaty which is going to  readjust the map of Europe that the  ultimate fate of such a power will be  decided,-at the same time that the  indemnity charegable- to each of the  defeated nations will be settled and  the benefits, territorial and other, of  the victorious Allies will be apportioned.  "In order to reach this goal the Allies, are exerting"al their resources in  perfect unanimity and without keeping jealous count ot one another. Assuredly Great Britain does hot conduct this war with the blood of her  allies, as the Cologne Zeitung contends. It has set up a formidable  army, which has by no means said its  last word yet, and which will soon be  at" least doubled. It is destined to  take great part in the decisive battle  which is impending, and the certain  success of which is foreshadowed hy  the recent actions at Perthes and*  Neuve  Chapelle.

Dr. Darn-  burg laid stress on the German light  for an open sea and asserted the advantages accruiug tu Germany from *  permanently retaining the land which  it has taken in Europe could be disregarded if all the other German demands, especially i\ guaranteed free  sea, were fully complied with in making peace, and "the natural commercial relations of Belgium^to Germany  were considered in a just and workable form."  Dr.  Dernburg's  letter    in  part follows :  "I can with full authority disclaim  any ambition for my country for  world dominion. She is much too  modest on the one hand aud too experienced on the other not to know  that such a state will never be toler-  . ated by the rest. The aim of Germany  . limits   }s to iiaVe the seas as well as the uar-  ^-cv^i-v.-   rows kept permanently open tor the  free use of all nations in times of war  as well as in times of peace. 1 per  sonally would even go as far as to  neutralize all the seas and* narrows  permanently by a common and effective agreement guaranteed by all the  powers.  ''A free sea is useless except combined with freedom of cable and mail  communication. I should like to see  all the cables jointly owned by the interested nations and a world mail  system oversea established by common consent.  "Th������" only alternative to an open  sea and free intercourse policy would  be a Chinese wall around each country. If there is no free intercourse  every country must become self-sufficient. Germany has proven that it  can be dohe. But this policy would  mean-very high customs barriers, discrimination, unbounded egotism, aud  a world bristling iu arms.  "Germany does not strive for Lei*  ritory aggrandizement in Europe. She  does not believe in conquering ana  sbujugating unwilling nations. Belgium commands the main outlet of  Western German trace, is the _-atur__  foreland of the empire and has been  conquered with untold sacrifice ot  blood and treasure. It offers to German trade the- only outlet to an open  sea and has been politically established, maintained and defended by  England in order to keep these natural advantages from Germany.  "The   love  for   small  peoples  that  England heralds now will never stand  jnivestigation,   as   shown   by   the   destruction of the small Boer republics.  So Belgium cannot be given up. However,   these   considerations   could   be  disregarded  if all  the  other German,  demands, especially a guaranteed free  sea,   were  fully  complied     with  and  the   natural  commercial  relations  of  Belgium to Germany were considered  in a just and workable form.   In this  case Germany will not fail, when tho  time comes, to help in rebuilding tho  country.     In,   fact,   she   is   doing  so  now.".  In closing his letter Dr. Dernburg  w-ote:  "A permanent peace will mean that  German activity must get a wide scope  withont infringement upon the rights  of others."  How Germany was Deceived  And  "Knights   in   Shining   Armour  Against  the Germans  ���������   -"When it comes to real dare-devil  bravery, our frienda  the French are  ibecond  to  none,"  declared    William  Blackford,   war   correspondent.

In that  town there wes a museum, and in  that museum there were two suits of  armour, such as the knights used to  wear in the days when they did not  dream of a '350' gun.  .  "From what 1 understood, these  armour clothes belonged to two great  ���������ocal authorities who fought against  Hie 'Bosches' a few hundred years  ago; but the Germans respect no living or dead inan, and they hit upon  a clever trick.

CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JUNE 11  Will" Run if Needed  Neil Mackay, M.P.P. for Kaslo,  who was here about three "weeks  ago, looking over this end of the  newly-constituted Kaslo constituency, has kept liis word concerning  an early announcepient as to  whether he would- again seek the  Conservative nomination,  reallv nothinc definite in  liouncemen t���������some thing  Indian   weather   forecast,  taking things by and large tRey  come pretty close to filling the bill.

Here's what he had  to say, as reported by the Kaslo  Kootenaian:  "Neil F. Mackay, M.P.P,, who  was a recent- visitor here, could  give no definite assurance as to  whether he would again be a  caudidate in this riding. It is  possible that be may decide to  enter the contest, provided that  the chances of Conservative  success will be strengthened  by his candidacy."  In  these   days  when   the   sitting  member  lnrario  Kl  >3r      OOj__iSXv-���������������5T*S    ITS*-  nomination to be his, sort of by  aiViiiB rignfc, it is g5.C-_ to see one  member who so frankly endorses*  the policy that the success of the  party transcends that of the sitting  nienoiuer.  For this somewhat elusive statement at least two reasons may be  assigned. Mr. Mackay makes his  home at Victoria and no doubt  realizes that now a rapidly developing front rank agricultural section  has been added to his constituency  he could not do his constituents  justice by continuing as their representative and still make his permanent home at- the capital; and as  between coming to some point in  the riding to reside and retiring  from public life he has about decided to quit the political arena. .  Or, having completed his trip  over the territory, he may have  discerned the writing on the wall  and concluded that certain outward  and visible signs foretold a forced  retirement and he has decided not  to take chances on a comeback.  Under the circumstances it is a  pleasure to assure. Mr. Mackay that  he need lose no sleep about any  shortage of likely candidates.  Right here in Creston we havo  several, and Kaslo can make an  equally-good showing, no doubt.  Also, at least one Creston prospect  enjoys a considerable popularity all  through the riding and would make  a very acceptable representative in  (.very respect.  Notwithstanding some adverse  comment on our willingness to act  in an advisory capacity in the matter of selecting a Tory nominee,  wc submit that any old plug of a  Tory candidate can't carry Kaslo  1 his trip. John Keen is a lighter  .ind in this campaign tho issues arc  favorable to tho Keen type of cam-  p.impaigm.r.  To offset this advantage tho  Conservative standard bearer must  be a man of eharaoter. with hnsi-  ih-hs ability and a reputation for  being big enough to withdraw his  HiippurL from measure., not in tho  public interest.

Creston Valley has a couple ol'  men who |x>ssi������������ly do not measure  up   perfectly fo   the  standard,   hut  In our news columns last week  we made the announcement that  for the first time in the history of  the Valley Creston had got around  to the point where local butter was  available in such quantities as to  enable Creston merchants not only  to supply the loeal demand but to  leave a surplus for export.   ~*~  This is splendid news in one particular direction; undoubtedly as  soon as we get rid of the idea that  we can grow fruit and then buy  everything else we'; need at four  times what it would cost to produce it we may expect ito see the  Creston Valley the most prosperous  part of Canada.  To get the best returns, however,  from the capital invested and labor  expended on dairying it is absolutely essential that butter that  tastes right should he made���������and  no other kind. In these stringent  times there is little demand for  butter for cooking purposes���������and  you would be grossly insulted if the  dealer classed your product as suoh  ���������and the variety commonly classed  as axle grease is absolutely unsaleable.

Starting with strawberries, tho picking of which is nicely under way, the  season promises a splendid yield, though it must not be overlooked that  this section is not particularly strong  on this lino of fruit.

Por this section a safe prediction on  the apple crop would be that it will  average up pretty well with 1014. A.  Miller, who has quite tt young orchard  finds the outlook pretty much the  same as a year ago. Rose & Watcher  look for a falling off as high as 20 per  cent. W. A. Pease will have an average crop.' while on the Compton place,  if the "Juno drop" is not severe there  will be an increased output of 40 per  cent. In connection with this property  it should be noted that in 1014 the  "drop" was excessive, Mr. Compton  figuring that it cost him almost 1,000  boxes abovo a normal shrinkage from  this cause.  Taking thoso four ranches as representative of the section in which they  aro located indications point to a good  year particularly for Transparent.!,  Wagmr and Jonathan, with the Duchess, Mcintosh Rod, Baldwin, Spltaon-  borg, .Snows and Nonsuch also considerably in evidence. ; On these same  places 1014 was a big year for Baldwin,  Grecnlnga and Wealthy.

Telephone 81  1  Live Stock on Fruit Farms  quarters  cow.  be  provided  for the  dairy  Some form of stock raising can oft/en be profitably combined with  orcharding both from the point of  view of additional income and tho conservation of soil fertility. The greatest danger from it is that few men eat_  make a success of several lines of agriculture at the same time. Dairy cattle, hogs and poultry have been suc-  cesfully combined with orcharding iu  British Columbia. In the dry belt,  poultry raising promises well, while in  the humid sections poultiy raising  and dairying or a combination of the  two have long been profitable adjuncts  to orcharding/ Where dairying is engaged in as a side line to orcharding,  it will usually be found profitable to  keep some hogs.  Live stock such as horses and cows  should never be permitted to trample  orchard land, especially when it is wet.  Hogs should be kept away from young  trees but may be allowed to run  among old ones.  In favorable localities bee-keeping  should prove a profitable side line for  the orchardist.  Care and Management of  Dairy Cattle  If success is to, be attained in dairying every detail must be considered  and one of no small importance is the.  dairy barn. The dairy cow is in a  measure an artificial animal and one  responds readily to the care and skill  of the herdsman by increased milk  production and just as certainly she  responds to cold, neglect, rough treatment etc. by diminished production.  Beef cattle are fed a ration that is  of a fattening nature and which is  cioseiy assoc_ateu witii lueat prod uet loti.  On the other hand the dairy cow is fed  ���������a highly nitrogenous ration to support  milk production and one which has  but, little heat producing- ^ahie, consequently   it is  essential   that good  NOTICE  m  Pound District Act and Pound  District Amendment Act  Stables.'  Since the dairy cow produces milk  for human- food it is' important that  the cow be kept in a healthy condition and the barns be so constructed  that the milk can be handled in a sanitary manner. Plenty of air and sunshine are the first requisites. Too  many dairy barns are dark and dirty  with but poor, ventilation; such barns  need a thorough cleaning and whitewashing and the installation of more  windows.  A dairy barn should be so constructed as to facilitate the work and at the  same time be comfortable for the cows,  For sections of the province where the  winters are cold a high ceiling is not  to be recommended, eight' to ten feet  is high enough. Plenty of room should  be allowed behind the animals for a  TOjrlo walk; *������__ R������?ch fl. -walk makes the  barn easier to keep clean. Cement is  now being used in the construction of  floors and walls and when it _-_ properly made with air spaces in the walls,  it is very satisfactory, being durable  and easy to clean, although in section's  where the winters are severe it is  hardly advisable to have the stall  floors made of it. unless they have a  wood topping, that is, a covering of  wood that is easily removed for cleaning.  Manure should not be stored under  the stable, but should be sent to a pit  some distance from the barn.  There are many kinds of stalls in use  arid nearly all have their good points.  One of the easiest on both man and  cow is some form of swing stanchion,  with a bent iron rod extending back  half the length of the stall and down  to the floor, to seperate the cows and  prevent their stepping on each other.  In summing up it may* be said that  a stable should be well lighted, well  ventilated} warm enough to be comfortable in mid-winter and convenient  both for the cattle and for the herdsman.  Milking ������  The milking should be, done regularly night and morning arid at equal intervals, that is if the milking- is done  in the morning at six, it should be  done also at six in the evening.  If there is more than one milker,  each should have certain cows to milk  and should milk these regularly, commencing with the same one at a certain timeand milking them inrotation.  ���������the'milking should' be'done with both  hands and as rapidly as possible without hurting the cow. As jn all opera-  tion^with dairy cattle, gentleness is.  absolutely necessary.  Gestation Period  " The gestation period of cows is nine  months. As the time draws near for  parturition the udder becomes distended and hard and the muscles and tendons relax on each Ride of the rump  giving a hollowed appearance. During  the summer months if the flies are not  bad and the weather is suitable, it is  at first at* least three times a day,  having the milk at blood heat. By the  time the, calf is three weeks or a  month old it will begin to nibble hay  if it ean get it., ������ats and bran can now  be given^ in small quantities, it will  tiik'e the calf only a little time to learn  to eat them; and some good clover or  1-_ *_���������_���������������*  manger also. As the calf learns to eat  dry feed, a handful; df oil meal and a  ha_-d������ui of corn rueai may be added to  the ration, but nothing excells oats.  The object of the feeding throughout  is to develope ?_ strongs large and -well  muscled framework.  During the first few months of its  life the calf should be kept inside in  clean corof ortable quarters, with plenty of light aud pure air. In winter it  should be~ protected from the cold, aad  in summer f rorri the- heat and flies,  Never allow grairi to be left in the  manger from one feeding to another.

Rearing the Calf  A properly reared dairy animal is  trained from birth with a view,to the  production of milk. Tho ideal Is a cow  that can consume large quantities of  food and change it into milk rather  than into flesh excepting for what is  required to keep the animal healthy  and strong.  Do not feed foods that haye a tendency to fatten. Let the calf suckle  its dam tho first two or three days.  The first milk, the colostrum, is a  natural physic and "essential to the  calf.  Toach it to drink as soon ao possible.  If it does not readily learn, skip a  meal and there will usually bo no fur-  thor trouble. For tho fir ������t ten dayn  ortwowooks aftor the calf has been  tn,ught to drink feed it Whole milk,  always warm and proforalily from tho  samo cow each tlmo.

Winslow, provincial horticulturist, has just ..completed a trip  through the Okanagan and mainland  districts, and in aujnterview expresses  the utmost confidence in 1915 being a  pretty fair all round year for the British Columbia fruit-growers.  From personal observation and a  study of reports from the apple-exporting sections of 'the Northwestern  States, Mr. Winslow finds that apples  are shor4t nearly every where, so that  prices can hardly fail to be high. In  Kootenay the crop will be above normal���������equal to that of 1914. Baldwins  and Starks and some of the e_vlipr  varieties are lighter than others.  Cherries are scarce everywhere  and consequently,-, .will bring good  prices. It was expected earlier in the  season that the Okanagan would have  a bumper cherry crop but the drop  T-.-_.C_   "--_!____���������_������������������_������������������.���������*. Kq  .������ ������*-*?    .������-_,WM. *  j  * T ^ *���������������*.  The peach crop in Wenatchee is 30  per cent, below 1914 and in Yakima  the decrease is a good 20 per cent. In  the Okanagan the yield will be hardly  as heavy as a year ago.' In view of  this apparent all-round shortage Mr.  Winslow is of opiuion that good prices  can be expected from this fruit.  There will probably be a good crop  of pears but as this fruit will also be  heavy in Yakima and Southern Oregon  as well, high prices can hardly be expected.- ,  Mr. Winslow makes no observation  on the plum crop,y but the Dominion  fruit crop report for June states that  British .'Columbia reports a minimum  crop in the Coast district and about 75  per cent. Of last year's crop in the  inland valleys.  It is interesting to note in the Dominion fruit bulletin that the acreage  under tomatoes in Eastern Canada is  considerably reduced "this year and  many canning factories will not be  operated. The supply of tomatoes on  the market will bo small ' compared  with last year. .  Disdussing the 1915 markets the Dominion Fruit Commissioner remarks:  "There seems to, be no iinmediate  cause for the producers to be discouraged, Later in , the season will be  quite soon enough for that, if.there it.  any need for discouragement at all. In  the meantime, growers will be doing  themselves the best possible service if  thoy tako care of their crop just as  they would In an 'Ordinary season. If  the fruit is of good quality and is well  packed, there is jio reason to doubt  thnt thoro will bo a demand for it*at  prices which will roturn tho producer  a, satisfactory figure.  Agricultural conditions in tho wost  aro extremely favorablo and thero is  eyory indication that the farmers will  receive good prices and that money  will circulate freely.

The  answer was "No." The farmer who  keeps his books on a shingle or a  barn door is just as likely to be successful in farming as a city man who  thinks a set of ledgers is the greatest  farm asset.  In   the   discussion   of   credit   there  may also be a tendency to think for  the   farmer;     Every   borrower   must  have  a proper basis  of credit-     The  cry in some quarters is that the farmer     is  not  granted  sufficient  credit,  that the banks  are  harsh  with  him.

The top  sieves should be just coarse enough  to let the grain run through and need  sufficient slope to run coarse impurities over the tail of the mill." The  lower screens should have openings  of the size required for grading or  removing weed seeds.  With wheat the grade for' high-  class seed is made over an 8-64 inch  perforated zinc screen. The grade for  oats is made over a screen with slots  5-64 by "-V^-inch. Barley requires the  same type with, slots larger depending on tiie size of the seed. Wild  buckwheat may be removed from  wheat by a screen wtih triangular  perforators 9-64 inch or larger. Flax  requires on top a woven wire sieve  3x16 inch mesh (3 spaces to the inch  one way and .16 the other) and a 1-12  inch perforated screen .below.

The Indians were present  to draw their allowance of federal  rations from the government.  Boss Farmer Forrest Ii. Stone presided at the meeting. He had invited  a number of Dupree people to be present and assist in the instruction and  many responded. '        ��������� -  Lewis Speaker devoted an������* hour's  time explaining to the Indians the  proper way to plant potatoes, what  varieties brought the best' results,  how the seed potatoes should be cut,  how deep to plant them and other valu:  able information along this line.  Puts-on-His-Siioes, one of the first  Indians in this section to adopt civilization���������from which fact he derived  his name���������told of his experiences in  raising potatoes.  O. S. Geesey spoke on the value of  proper horse raising, showing the Indians how much money they could derive from this source by following certain rules in breeding.  Straight Head and Judge Charley  Corn talked along the same line,  enlarging somewhat on Mr. Geesey's  remarks.  Mrs. Tony Acker "addressed the  meeting to some length on the value  of sheep raising in the reservation  country where pasturage is "bountiful.  She impressed the Red i'leu with the  fact that with sheep there were two  profits to be derived a year from thfe  wool, while the animals could be marketed for mutton at any time.  The second day of the institute was  devoted to alfalfa and corn raising.  Robert Makes Room. Giles Tapitola  and Frank Corn being the principal  speakers.  Brooks7 "Appliance.   JSew  discovery.

The trawler's most desirable  skipper, an Aberdonian, was about to  ram it and earn the prize money,  when the submarine commander, not  suspecting this evil intention, offered  to buy somo fish.

Advice For the   Farmer  Before farming as a business or profession can be conquered successful  in the highest and bastrsehse; the profits arising from, production and distribution of farm products must be  shared by the household.  Good breeds;6f live stock and the  most" approved arid up-to-date labor-  saving farm implem.nts are a necessity on the farm.

Jackes, who formerly held a  similar position at the King George,  succeeds Teddy Maione as second in  command at the Creston House.  The editor is keeping down the high  cost of living to some extent this week.  We were remembered with a line 8-  ponmi char out of the Bevan-Lowen-  berg-Callander catch���������and very tasty  couple of dinners it made.  A lawn social is announced for Wednesday, June 10, at the home of Mrs.  Knott, Canyon City iu aid of the  church funds.

Our late friend Rev. W. G. Blake is  finding June quite a busy one, matrimonially speaking, at Nakusp. He  officiated at a double wedding on Wednesday last���������in the church, too.  Geoi-ge Hendron and John Hayden  returned on Tuesday from a few days  angling in Goat River in the Kitchener country. Either the fish were all  fasting or have turned vegeterians;  the catch was quite small.  Cranbrook's claim to having produced the first outdoor-grown 1915  sweet peas in the Kootenay���������Joe Jackson gathering some on June 1st���������is  disproved right here in the Valley.  Mrs. Walter Hall of Erickson' has  been gathering more or less large  boquets of .them since May 27th.  Still no word from Victoria as to  when the Third Canadian Contingent  will shift camp. They have been  ready for a quick trip overseas for almost a month now. As soon as the  all-Kootenay regiment is full strength  recruiting will start on three more  regiments to be raised in British Columbia���������one a highland brigade.  Paddy Hope, one of Creston's representatives with the First Contingent  whose name appeared on the casualty  list about six weeks ago, has been  beard from. He was wounded by  shrapnel on April 30th, after about  throe months in the trenches. Ho is  hoping to get to Dublin for awhile,  after his wound heals sufficiently.  Just as we go to press this (Thursday) afternoon the annual meeting of  the Creston District Woman's Christian Temperance Union is being hold at  the home of Mrs. Stocks. The officers  chosen for this term aro:  President���������Mrn. M. Knott.  Vice-President���������Mrs. Truscott.  Secretary���������Mrs. C. S. Hall.  Treasurer Mrs. Frueliek.  The reports of tho president and secretary show the year to be ono of progress. A full report of tho meeting  will appear next week.  The Juno moo ting of tho   Creston  Board of Trade on Tuesday night was  not overtaxed   with   li������>a.vy  luminous.  The gov.u'i.mout advised   that  the big  petition  favoring the pound district  hud arrived and was having due attention.
