Lindley, the 'sales  manager.  Since assnming charge on April  28th, Mr. landless statement  ���������showed that the Union had-done  over $30,000 of husiness to the  middle of July. Roughly speaking  $15,000 of this had originated at  Duck Greek and the balance  handled at the Creston officii. "  The profit to the Union to date  was over the $1,000 mark. In  this connection iir is well to point  out that at the end of May there  was a deficit of almost $350 on  account of little or no stuff moving.  Since June 1st this adverse balance  had been overcome and right now  the credit balance of ov^r $1,000  really showed that in six weeks a  profit in the neighborhood of $1,400  is shown as a result of "the carefal  , administration of Messrs. Heald  and Lindley.  bages arid ripe tomatoes, J. W. Fraser;  and new potatoes, M. E. Palm_r.

J*X*.*,m  Lindley "aftei. the .meeting The  Sevisw1 - l^srnp --h***--" *������������������������������������������������������-* t*n   +jv������_.  middle of July, from incomplete  figures, the Union has handled over  11,000 crates of strawberries, some  1,200 raspberries, about 300 black  and red currants and possibly 500,  of sweet and sour cherries. For  the first time in the Valley's history  early cabbage has been, available  for export, close to ar ton and a half  haying gone out already, along  with a couple of tons af new potatoes, half a ton of green peas, and  some beans.  Prices for strawberries have been  rather better than in" 1914, but  prospects are not so good for raspberries. The yield throughout  B.C. is heavier than a year ago and  of course, owing to general depression the demand is lighter. In  the other /lines 1915 figures are  quite well Up to last year's standard. Cabbage, of oourse, have  netted the growers nice "returns.  A very satisfactory feature in  connection with the business to date  is that it is at least 25 per cent,  greater thai, the entire trade done,  by the Union last year. For the  wholo of 1914 about $25,000 was  handled, while to July 15, 1915,  over $80,000 has boen shipped.  Cartwright Avenue, Erickson, was  given quite a good look over by a good  sized black bear on Sunday morning.  Bruin had come down to inspect tbe  early tomato and cabbage crop on tbe  Fraser ranch,! and made his getaway  a few minntes ahead of Walter Hall  j coming on the scene with his rifle.  The government "road gang started  work again on Monday constructing a  highway from the hotel to the depot  to replace the free for air trail now in  use. The putting in of the highway  necessitates the removal of a barn and  a row or two of fruit trees on the Er  Cartwright place ������uti a fill in ox the  ravine, n^ar Palmers.  By-*J������ng odds the most successful  Res^ Cross function yet held was that  of Wednesday afternoon and evening  oh the spacious and inviting grounds  at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W.

McMurtrie,  and others.   During   the afternoon and evening the tennis court was  never idle.    There were also several  contests, some of the winners being:  Nail-driving, Miss "Turner  and Mrs.  Whitehead; golf-putting. Miss A.

The pros and cons of hiring a clerk  were discussed but as the secretary of  a rural school must be member of the  trustee board, and would bear all the  responsibility even if a clerk were engaged, the plan did not seem advisable.   Mrs.  Mallandaine   finally   consented to act for the time being.  A communication from The Review  was read, suggesting that minutes of  tbe regular monthly meetings be published in that -paper. The plan was  adopted. The question of filling the  vacancies on the teaching staff was  then taken up.  Moved by Mrs. Mallandaine, seconded by F.

Upon the top of this side I place the  other aide and treat in a similar manner, and also the same with the hams.  Every day for the first week pour the  brine off the meat, and add more salt  if the meat is not covered with it: by  the end of the second week the meat  has become dry.

The  outlines of the map and the letters  and figures were all very dim and  faded.  My lady's letter was a short one. for  she looked up from it presently, her  eyes, filled with tears, the first I had  seen there and for that reason I was  glad she should enjoy this relief. I  suppose the fact that she was so alone  and had no one else induced her to  confide in me. A any rate she extend- [  ed the paper to me. j  "Read  it,"   she    said.

Clark, Dominion seed commissioner, sounded a note which is of  special interest at the present crisis  in Canadian agriculture. In prefacing  his address he said:. "Unfortunately  farming during the last ten years or  more has been less attractive to young  men of good ability and to capital than  other industries in urban centres. The  problem of farm labor has been an  exceedingly perplexing one and in eon-  sequence farm systems have been  modified so as to require the minimum  of labor for the maximum yield of net  returns. City industries have completely outbid the farm in the matter  of labor, and it is probably true that  if the opportunities in the city looked  brighter during the past ten years, the  next ten years, in my judgment, assuredly belong to the farm, and the  sooner they realize that the better for  themselves and for all concerned.

' Of  all  the  cattle  kind  upon    the  farm,  the  yearling's  lot  is    usually  about the worst.    This is too    often  true, when times    aro    good.    When  prices  are high,  and  when, feed    is  cheap.    When this is trrie, then it is  a case of force the feed upon    the  older  animals   and   get    them     into  marketable condition.    Let the yearl-1  ings tako care of themselves.  When  the opposite is true, then It is too often a case of making tho yearlings  stand tho worst of It.   When milk Is  high, it Is a case of force tho cow and  Htarve the yearling.  This is one of tho biggest kind of  mistakes. All experiment gooH to  show that galno may he more economically made upon yearlings than with  other cattle.

Venice Once Richest City in the World  Venice is believed to liave originated  early in. the-' Christian era. The islands which later fo.med the city serv-  _ ed as- a .refuge 'for inhabitants of  neighboring cities during the invasion  of Attila, the Hun, 452. The establishment of a government is recorded  the same year.  Venice became a republic in 687,  when the" first Doge was seated. -A  senate governed the city.  ��������� The city was constantly compelled  to defend itself against pirates and  other cities for 1,000 years. It was  almost; always at"w������ .r, but it rose* to be  the -wealthiest city of the world.  Its merchant ships numbered 3,300  ;ves.sel. in: 1473. ft '. was the great  maritime power of the world. In.-;1797  Napoleon Bonaparte extinguished the  Venetian republic. She regained her  possession in 1814 and a year later  a Lombardo-Venetian kingdom was  established.  After a revolution in. 1840 Austria  obtained the territory but in 1866 was  compelled to relinquish it to Italy.  .

THE ONLY MEDICINE  FOE LITTLE ONES  Driftwood  That  Finds an  Anchorage  in the Role of a Farm Hand  In our fathers' days the farmhand  was the son of a neighboring farmer,  working by the month for the first payment on a farm of^his own. Now he  is usually a bit of" human driftwood  floating on an unchartered sea, with-no  anchorage for th* winter save perilous  roadsteads like Hinky Dink's place in  "Chi." A letter from a South Dakota  farmer throws a flood of .light, not altogether pleasant, on this generally  -neglected phase of country-life development:  "Here are a few of the more striking  men who. have worked for: us in the  past few years: The son of a member  of the British parliament, the nephew,  of a celebrated surgeon, a chocolate  colored Maltese globe-trotter, a sidetracked civil engineer whose education  extended: through integral and differential -calculus, a British sailor, a  United States cavalryman, two prize-  fightersjw_wi ex-convict, a long-haired  poet, a barber, an escaped inmate of  the States Hospital for the Insane at  Cherokee, Iowa, a locomotive engineer,  and a man win. said, that his last job  had been boring holes, in macaroni."  Rather different from the men one  visualizes as joining the family at  mealtime on a western farm, isn't it?  "Most of them,!~ continues our farni-  er-correspondent, "were defectives, in  some way, but none of them were  worse for their sojourn with us.

Smit |  Two Theories of Human Nature That  Will Fight Each Other Out  Germany has lost her soul and  morally isolated her people to an extent that makf*s it difficult for us to  realize how.it is possible to negotiate  a peace wtih her. What has her policy of .rightfulness accomplished in  the way of material gain? Her brut-  alization of Belgium has created a  moral and material difficulty from  whose coils the contortions of her travellers iu ' intrigue, like Herr Dern-  burg, will never release her- The sinking of the Lusitania turns America into an avowed or a virtual associate  of the allies. But a not less important effect is the immense stimulation  it has administered to the spirit of  her adversaries; Is that negligible?  Perhaps���������-to a stupid materialism such  as hers. But not to those who measure  events in terms of human thought and  feeiing rather than in. numbers and  material alone. If her poisonous gases  deal out a frightful form of death to  some hundreds of British and French  officers and men, they also multiply  tenfold the vim of the armies of Flanders and France.

When at length the great  scheme  of Sir John Macdonald  was  The Motto of the  Merchants Bank of  Canada  The statement of the Merchants  Bank of Canada which is published in  this issue, and whicl. is well worthy of  close study, shows clearly that the  management have strained every effort to prepare this institution for any  sudden call, and now: with over twenty-one millions of actual cash assets,  and an increase . of one-third over  last year's good showing of "quick assets," it faces any temporary financial  disturbance with, unruffled front.  Yet this has been done without  materially affecting commercial loans  in Canada, with, considering the  ���������shrinkage in general business, cannot  be considered to show a serious drop,  the reduction being only about 10%���������  while loans on stocks, etc., show a  slight Increase in Canada but. a decrease of almost two millions outside  of Canada.  From a shareholder's point of view  the fact that while profits have fallen  off, yet the usual dividends hav. been,  earned and paid, must be a satisfaction, while every one will rejoice at  the generally healthy condition revealed by the bank's statement-  The management have shown that  they are not mere fair weather pilots,  and while they have reaped the benefits accruing from their past wisdom of  accumulating a good, reserve against  the proverbial rainy day, they have  been able without any dislocation of  current business to make an unpre-  cedently strong showing,, one which  will inspire us all with increased confidence in thoir institution.  o^RNESS  pressiy  That's  is manufactured ex-  for harness,  why it prevents cracking and  a makes the leather  soft and pliable.

A Good Publicity Move
The request of the board ot* trade
to the ranchers, through the Fruit
Growers Union, that in each bos oi'
apples or other fruit package, in
which it is practical, a copy of the
board's booklet setting forth the
agricultural advantages of the district be placed, is one that should
be taken up by every Valley fruit
grower.
A more effective and economical
method of calling public attention
to the Valley and   its agricultural
and horticultural possibilities could
hardly be devised. With the special
efforts  being  made   to   have  this
year's apple  crop  available to the

If the Valley is ever to fully I

up for him by handing out some of
the Conseevative government good

In view of past dissatisfaction in
B.C. with coalition governments
and the chaos that would undoubtedly follow any amalgamated administration by parties in which
feeling runs so high against each
other, such a move would not have
public commendation
The public has been so fed up on
charges and counter charges by
both parties of dishonesty and incapacity for goverring the province

A Coalition Government?
Some of the Tory weeklies are
putting out feelers on the question
������!' ii coalition gocernrnent in British
Columbia foi* the duration of the
war. The Grand Forks Gazette
assures us that " not a few of the
''leading Liberals would bo willing
"to accept positions in the cabinet,
'though the rank and iile are
"'strongly opposed to the proposal."
This suggestion, however, is not
in harmony with a statement issued
by Premier McBride early in July,
to the effect that "the provincial
5* election will be held within the
"confiti-hitionul time," which means
going to the people before April
next.
While the coalition government
story comes from papers that .should
have things tipped off to them
pretty straight, it can he set down

tne war as tailing islo vtiree pares.
The first was the German offensive last fall which was stopped at
the Marne. The second is still in
progress, in what is virtually a
siege of Germany, insofar as the
western front is concerned, at least.
The third stage, according to the
reported belief of the great French
general, wiii be comparatively
brief. From this we may assume
that in his -opinion Germany will
have weakened herself so seriously
in men and resources  by her  des-
|-_xcfci>e buj. uicb     *i_ii      Kxxjvxi    iiuiiio   vlxcx/v
when the final  allied assault takes
place she will be quickly beaten.
The assumption that when the
tide turns against Germany she
will be rather quickly mastered is
not unreasonable. Tho inhuman
treatment of the Belgians, the sinking of the Lusitania, the use of gas
bombs, the dropping of shells on
unprotected British and French
villages, and the utter disregard of
all the humane features of the rules
of international warfare, brand
Germany as. a military bully, and
who ever knew of a bully who
wasn't a quitter.
In this wearing down process two
different methods are in vogue.
Owing to geographical conditions
Britain and France find it necessary to resort to trench warfare,
but the Russians are out to mako a
quicker job of it. Petrograd was
not disturbed ovor tho Gorman ad-
vnnce in Galicia because it know
that to make tho adyanco the
Kaiser muNt havo lost hundreds of
thousands of men and that those
losses could not bo mado good,
while Russia had not put more
than one fifth of her available
military strength on tho batfclo-
front. Thus wo may soe moro
Russian lotiromontH and advances

'Clio host way to wear tho onomy

Allies can continue to bleed normally and Austria at the rate of ton

In preparing the soil it is  an advantage, to plough under a. lega-  minous green erbp, but sod land should  be avoided, on account* of the"danger  of injury from the work of laryae or  grubs.        ;  Synopsis of Coal Mininir  Regulations  Coal mining rights of tho Dominion,  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, thoNorth-  West Territory and in a portion of tho  Province of British Columbia, may bo  leased for a term of twenty-one years  at an annual rental of $1 an aero.

Planting  There are two systems in general  use:���������the matted row and the hill system. In the matted row the plants are  set 18 to 24 inches apart in the row  and the rows 3J to 4 feet apart depending on location and the growth of the  variety planted, in the hill systems  the plants are set 18 by 36 inches and  are hot allowed to make runners, the  the runners being kept off by the use  of a sharp hoe or a circular dropper.  The choice of ono of these systems  should depend on local conditions. If  the land is dry ahd weedy tho hill  system will probably give the best results. If on the other hand the soil is  rich, clean and there is a plentiful supply of water for the plants, the matted  row system is tho. bettor of the two.  It is simply a question of the amount  of plant growth in the way of strawberry vines and fruit that the land  can sustain in a thrifty condition.  That and convenience in tillage.  No matter which system is adapted  the plantHshbuld bo sot out in straight  parallel rows to facilitate tillage and  for tho sake of. appearance. Spring  planting is best. 'The soil should po  packed firmly about tho roots of the  plants just up to tho crowns. All  broken roots should havo boon pruned  oil! and tho whole root system shortened back lightly. After tho plants  aro sot somo of ���������,tho laigor loavos  should be removed.

School Children and Forestry  The forestry division of the North  Carolina Geological and Economic Survey recommends xiie collecting of  wood sarriples, leaves, nuts, etc.. as a  profitable diversion for children. It  publishes a; btdletin on this subject in  connection with a competition the Central Carolina Pair association has arranged, offering ������20 in sis prizes for  collections of native woods aud leaves.  In both cases specimens are to be  named. Competitors are to be children, under 16 years. The forestry department approves the idea, stating  that the child's natural desire for collecting may furnish one of the readiest avenues for instruction. To secure  the best results parents should direct j  the efforts and teachers should recommend books on the work. It is suggested that a collection of forest  seeds would be an instructive object  lesson as so many people do not know  what the seeds of the commonest trees  look like.

Just as ''pi'.?s ia pigs," so to her load  wa(s lead.

Often Indicate  Over-work,  and a Run Down Nervous  System  Overwork and worry have an evil  effect on the system and often give  rise to nervousness and sleeplessness.  Other signs include a weak back,  headaches ,and indigestion. In time if  matters are neglected a complete  breakdown of the nervous system follows. On every hand one can observe  victims of this state of nervous exhaustion who are at a loss to know  what to do with themselves, their nervous debilitated state having baffled  all ordinary treatment.  If you are a victim of exhausted  nerves, if your symptoms are as described above, you need. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills because they are a powerful  nerve tonic- Their strengthening action on weak nerves is due to the fact  that they enrich and build up the  blood through which the nerves are  fed. Under the tonic influence of Br.  Williams' Pink Pills all traces of nervous weakness disappear together  with the headaches, the insomnia, the  feeling of intense weakness and depression of spirits that mark the victim of nervous ailments, Here is the  proof. Mr, .Henry Mnrr, Port Felix,  M.S., says: "It gives me greatest pleasure to testify as to the value of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. When 1. began  their use I was a physical wreck*, my  nerves wore all unstrung, I suffered  from frequent headaches and backaches, and was almost wholly untltfed  for worlc. 1 had tried several remodies  without success, when I Anally decided to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a  trial. I took six boxes and they made  me a well man."  What these Pills did Tor Mr. TMurr  thoy will do for every other weak and  nervous man, If given a fair trial. Sold  by all medicine dealers or sent by mail  at 50 cents a box or six boxes for  42.50 by writing The Dr. Williams'  Medicine Co., Brockvllle, Ont.  War and the Coa! -Supply  It is thought that in some countries the coal supply is nearing the  end- If this be the case, however.  there is sufficient to go round for  the whole world, but in war time  when blockades exist there can be  no import. It is estimated that the  ���������world ooal reserves amount to 7,397,-  533,000,000 tons.  Of anthracite coals, Asia, with the  great Chir.ese fields, has by far the  -largest supply of any of the great  continental divisions, being able to  furnish 407,637,000,000 tons. The  world's production of coal for 1010  was about 1,145,000,000 tons. Consequently after allowing for areas  whicli cannot be economically mined,  there should be sufficient coal left  for many hundreds, of years, although the present war will cause a  big reduction iu coal stocked for  emergency.  i _������  Worms in children work havoc.  These pests attack the tender lining  of the intestines and, if left to pursue  their ravages undisturbed, will ultimately perforate the wall, because  these worms are of the hook variety  that cling to and feed upon interior  surfaces. Miller's Worm Powders will  -not only exterminate these worms, of  whatever vnriety, but will serve to repair the Injury they havo done.  HOME -S  STUDY    j  Arts Cohrses only.

Here  is her own story: : <*  -Before I had .finished my 1913 club  won. 1 began to make plans for better work in 1914:1 had made some mistakes and meanv to''.profit by them.  ".I decided -'among other things that  I ought to have ripe tomatoes for the  early market to eaten the good prices.  So yearly in February I planted an  early Variety in three boxes: that I  placed in front cf the south windows  of a room in the house. In the latter  part of March 1 transplanted some of  the plants to small pasteboard boxes  ���������one plant to each box. This enabled  me to move them to the open without  disturbing the roots. "As soon as it  was warm enough I .set the rest in a  cold frame, four7 inches apart A each  way. In April I planted the late  variety in the hotbed. A  : "The plants in the cold frame and  in the pasteboard.boxes were very vigorous " and had some blooms when I  transplanted them to the open on May  twenty-second. In all, I bad more than  600 plants. "'������������������':  "I hoed them after each rain-and  whenever I thought they needed it. We  A came to this farm during the spring of  1914; which gave us agarden full of  weeds, and I had my hands full keeping these pests under control. It was  Very dry and the plants did not grow  very tall- So I decided not to stake  them, but kept up the hoeing until the  tomatoes began to ripen.  canning team that would do credit to  their school and to enter tne canning  contests held in connection with the  Land Products Show at Portland, Oregon. The Indian cannin.;'team, won  the first prize in the three days' canning contest at last fall's show.  These girls competed with the champion team of girls from Pleasant  Home High: school. They were required to can salmon, vegetables,  fruits and practically every farm product. There is hardly a school, section;, class' or race in this country today that has not adopted home cant  ning as a profitable method of converting surplus and waste products of  the garden and: orchard: into wholesome foods.

The third, I think, hit her funnel.    ���������  You get a good idea of what a complete command of the sea we have obtained when you see how we are able  to spare this, our dates': and most powerful dreadnought, for the operations  against the Dardanelles,    instead    of  hurrying her oK, as soon as completed,  to Sir John jeliicoe somewhere in the  North Sea.   Very shortly there will ba  four other Queen Elizabeths ready for  active service;   therefore,   if the Ger-  inins ever intend to leave the/shelter  of the Kiel canal, they had better do  so soon.    They have no ships afloat  which can compare in gun-power with  the Queen Elizabeth.  A short distance from the Queen  Elizabeth lies the Dreadnought cruiser  Inflexible. ;Thi3 ship has seen more  fighting in the war than almost any  other vessel in the fleets She was one  of Z.dmiral Si** Doveton Sturdee's  squadron when he put an end to Von  Spree and his squadron off the Falkland Islands. The officers tell you that  that action was child's play to what  they had to face on March 18th, when  the great attack was made on the Dardanelles. The Inflexible suffered  heavily. Her foretop was hit by a  shell, which killed or wounded all of  those hp aloft but two seamen.  An English correspondent, assigned  to report the operations in the Dardanelles, describes his arrival at the anchorage of the allied fleet, iu the following words:  Now we round a bend and come in  sight of a portion of the fleet. The  first sight which greets our eyes are  the fighting-tops of' the mighty Queen  Elizabeth���������the most powerful warship  afloat in any waters. Her huge body  is hidden by 'some low-lying land.  Shades of Nelson! But suddenly we  see a destroyer: dashing her way-towards i_s andflying the French flag;  It is hard-to believe that within two  days' gentle steaming of where the;  Battle of the Nile was fought, a A century after Trafalgar, a .French destroyer is engaged in protecting England's battleships.  We give our number, and the destroyer retires satisfied, and we made  our way slowly in- Then a torpedo-  boat, this time flying British colors,  dashes up and asks if we know our  way among the rocks and shoals. We  do not and frankly admit the same, so  she gives us a friendly lead. Half an  hour later we are amongst the battleships, cruisers, storeships and destroyers. Everything in the navy is organized down to the smallest -detail.  Our. captain sees a comfortable looking, unoccupied berth, and makes for  it to anchor.. On a battleship close by  a sailor sits astride the bride and  starts furiously waving little flags.  These cannot be read from our bride  and both officersA and men lack .practice at the rapid reading of signals,  so we have to turn the ship.and go  back. Th- little flags tell us. that a  berth has been assigned for us.at the:  other end of the bay. When we are  half way across a. pinnace steams up  and two officers come oh board who  take charrc of. the ship and conduct  us personally to o*_r anchorage.

That would be a pity. W_Te_o  the two have equal opportunities, the  small   or   middle-sized   farmer   has  always    beaten   the big farmer and  the farming corporation  in competition.    There are only two condition-  under which the bis capitalist farmer has won out.    The first is whera  he has had.a large supply of cheap  labor, such as "slaves,    or    gangs ot  coolie  laborers,   which  he  could  direct and    control.    The independent  small   farmer   who   work, with his  own hands has   then found himself  compelled  to    compete    with : these  cheap  laborers,    and" lio has had  a  "hard row to hoot"   The other condition is where   the big farmer, or the  big  farming    corporation    has    had  aouie advantage in bargaining. It ho  can  buy his  supplies  to  better  advantage, if he can secure capital on  more favorablo terms, if he can sell  his produce to better advantage, he  may succeed in competition.with tho  phiall  farmor.     But  when  it comes  to the    real worlc of production, as;  distinct from bar gf.in Ing���������that is, as  distinct from hiring labor, borrowing  capital,  buying   supplies,    or  selling  produce���������the small farmer can beat  lilm and  oven'tuall;'��������� run him  out ot  business-    TJiat Ib, today, as a producer, the small farmer has no equal.  Ar. a bargainer, he is oft.n at a dip*  advantage.  Hero  is  where    the    banker may  como in and amply -justify his existence.
