As to time the programme was  pretty nicely divided between literary  and musical^oj^rings. In the former  department, i%,_v. R. E. Pow, owing  to his mishap last, week, gave a more  less impromptu talk on " Knockers,"  dealitg more or less with the subject  from a church standpoint. Throughout his 15 minute .address he interspersed considerable humor as well as  timely agrument and the talk deserves a prominent place among the  good things of the evening. The other  literary number was by Miss Muriel  Knott, a recitation, "The Leper,"  which was also well received.  In the musical section the choir gave  '* Come Until Me" very acceptably,  and a duett by Mrs. Carpenter and  Miss E. Smith was another good number. Miss Francis Knott's solo, "Pansy Faces" was a favorite,  and entitles  r-O.    _r_  ������_   __l _,������_���������. i__    4 ���������___ "\.������ 11 __-.'������_    *r/_t--i__np  musical set.

The Albertan says:  Caught prisoner by the Germans at  the battle of St. Julien, Corporal Ernest Atherton of Calgary, a. member'  of the Fighting Tenth, given up as  dead by comr-ides and friends, escaped  from his captors and after numerous  adventures returned to his own lines.  ��������� He 5s now back with the Tenth facing the enemy once more.  Brief word that he was alive and  well was received by his father, Corporal J. J. Atherton of the 82nd, who  has another son, who has gone through  all the terrible engagements of the  Tenth without a scratch.  Corporal Ernest Atherton, who did  not answer the roll call after the St.  Julien fight, and who Was not listed  union a, the wounded at any of the  dressing stations, was mourned for  months as dead by his family and  friends. Despite every'effort his father could get nt) word of him. Enquiries in Germany failed to reveal that  he was a prisoner. The worst was at  once conjectured.  Young Atherton. of a daring and  resourceful disposition, however, was  not to be wiped out, ho easily. With  a captain, wlm-e name he does not  givo, he mado.his escape while his captors were less vigilant, than usual, and  after days of wandering, living upon  what thoy could get from the Holds  they passed through, and finding  friendly but frightoncd people in Bel-  glum occassionnllv, they tit length  muitagi d to crawl into their own liuuu.  This thoy accomplished at great peril  being almost shot by their own comrades. When they got back to what  remained of their once fine battalion  tho rejoicing was great in thooxtromo.  Corporal Ernest was also ovor joyed  to find that his brother a private in  the -AUK- a.rfijtnny had cci-ie through  the St. Julien nnd t. .**> subsequent en-  gagoinent- without harm.  Both are still with the Tenth and  ready to face any adventures that  offer  Corporal Athei ton will probably see  them at tlu' front.

Pthe Nelsdti News of Tuesday  announced that the authorities at  Ottawa had issued orders to proceed  with the construction of the line and  the work is expected to start forthwith. Althougn no definite information is yet available" it is expected  the government will- string its wires  from Duck Creek to Creston on the  poles of the Creston Telephone Co.  The News says:  W. H. Stevens, superintendent of  the Dominion government telephone  service, announces that he has received authority from Ottawa to- proceed  with the construction of a line from  Kootenay Landing to Creston.  The line will not be constructed up  to the usual government standard, as  there is no appropriation whicd would  admit of this being done, but it will  give connection between Nelson and  Creston until money can be appropriated for a permanent line.  The work was recommended be-  causo of the importance of supplying  the link between Kootenay Landing  and Creston and points east of that  placo. At present the lino runs from  Balfour along the main lake to the  landing and theennnection is required  to make through connections and enable tho benefit of the construction  work which has been carried out to  be obtained by the people of tho  district.

Of the six offerings presented the most popular seemed to be  the rustic dance by Misses Dorothy  Stark, Phyllis Hamilton, Phyllis and  Francis Lyne.   The young folks entered into it "with enthusiasm and each  displayed considerable natural  talent  which, combined with the   costumes,  made an   encore    simply   inevitable.  A good second choice was the tabieanx  in   which   the  following    characters  were quite realistically depicted.'

A musical sketch "See  Saw" was effectively put 'on by the entire company,    which numbered the  even dozen, and all were seen en masse  in the "Good Might and Good  Morning" song and  God   Save   the   King,  with which this feature of the evening  concluded.  Those in charge of the affair deserve  honorahle mention for the time and  effort they must have expended in  training the talent, to say nothing of  the extra work of costuming,the latter  feature assisting materially m rounding out the finished production.  A couple of hours dancing followed  the programme, Mrs. Downs, and Mr.  Macedo furnishing the music. Refreshments were also served. The  proceeds were in tho neigborhood ot*  $25.  M.

Tovyns   is, in  Direct   Proportion   to the  Prosperity of the Farmers who Surround it and the Local  Merchant Should   be  Active in Community Welfare  By Clyde Ashley in the Breeders' The prosperity of the average American village is m direct proportion to  the prosperity of the a farmers surrounding it. ; Can the local merchant  do himself a greater service than in  inducing farm prosperity by.promoting general community welfare? He  can  iind   a   better  market  for; more  In many places the chief topic of  discussion among farmers is how they  can get away from the price-domination of the local merchants, how they  can buy co-operatively for cash and  save on costs; how they can sell cooperatively and thus either force the  local merchant to a higher price or get  it otherwise. They forget to take into  account the fact that when they buy  one or two articles co-operatively they  buy*for cash taking just so much business away from the local merchant  and forcing him to carry them for an  equal amount.  While this is going on the local merchant cuts down on orders, tells the  traveling man that co-operative buying is cutting down his trade and  making it a credit business; that now  the farmers will let"*appies rot in the  fields if they can not sell direct; that  the corn coming to the grain dealer is  soft and the eggs-delivered to his  store are rotten. The local dealer can  not sell co-operatively because the  average co-operative company is seldom a permanent organization and is  almost never incorporated, hence its  financial responsibility is limited.  You ask why they do not get to-  , g-ether? This is our question and the  ���������' fact remains that they . seldom do.  They "cuss" and discuss one another  at regular intervals when a little getting together, a frank, open discussion  of grievances (for both the farmer and  the merchant have them a-plenty  would give both a new viewpoint, a  new basis for future relations which  should bring with them greater net  profits to both. ���������  Nearly, every town of less than 10,-  000 in our great middle west owes its'  very existence Lo the farms surrounding it. Were the farmer not to trade,  practically every store would be  forced out of business and in a few  farm  products.    Instead of encourag-1 ope;  the respective "areas being  ing new factories he can secure lee-   Gpe   3,370,000   square   miles   an  tures, corii shows, agricultural fairs,  agricultural schools and other live5 features which stand for better farming  and greater farm profits. He dan keep  himseltLbetter informed of the farmers' needs and of articles of money-  making value to the farmer .He could  take on the function of a handler of  farm products to his own advantage  and to the farmer's profit. The farmer has a man's size task in caring for  the production end- He does not have  time for co-operative organization. He  is glad to give a fair commission for  services rendered, but because no one  has been found who will take over the  selling end of his business he has been  forced to form co-operative organizations.   .  Some small towns have seen the  light. Out in Iowa one county has  formed.., a board of trade which is  made up of farmers;and merchants in  equal number. In a"h Ohio town there  is a club made up of the young farmers and young business men, where  two or three nights a week a small  gathering is sur*-* to be found.* A few  papers are on the table and the-merchant reads the agricultural papers,  especially the advertisements, as carefully as the farmer. Hundreds of  towns hold fairs, agricultural schools  and corn shows.  The movement is barely started. It  needs impetus. No matter what your  line of work, it will pay you to help-  It 'means opportunities undreamed of  for the small town and country boy.  It will help to keep down great congestion in centres of population, thus  years the town would pass out of ex-j relieving the problem of the city. It  istence.

Mr. Black told the Tribune upon his  return. "It is felt that with a bettor knowledge of business methods  tho farmer could increase his personal wealth, which would redound  to the benefit of tho nation.  "At the conference," Mr. Black  said, "methods for bringing about  this relationship wore discus-tid and  it appeared that in many cases  bankers were loaning money to the  farmers for the purpose oi sending  the farmers' sons to an agricultural  college."

"It is now an established fact that  northern countries are not the barren  areas that they were once thought to  be; but, on the contrary, abound in  natural wealth that is as necessary  and as useful to the world as the products of the tropical, semi-tropical and  temperate zones. Petrograd is one of  the worlds princiapl centres of civilization, yet the same parrallel of north  latitude which passes through it, also  passes through the northern boundaries of the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta. . It is, therefore, reasonable to expect that large cities will  be built in the future in the norther-  most limits of these provinces. The  climate, at least, can be no bar to such  developments. The same parallel of  north latitude , which passes through  part of Germany and Denmark, also  passes through Central Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba- The parallel  of north latitude which passes through  Southern France and Italy also passes  through Nova Scotia, New Brunswick  and Southern Ontario.  "It may be seen from this that the  Dominion, having similar climate, has  tha capacity to produce all the different-kinds of. natural products that  Europe produces, with the exception  of those produced in Spain, Central  and Southern Italy and Greece.  -trpl-^    ^j .V _-^ ���������*-���������_-���������������������������������._*-���������,.���������_ o    T-.-C- oiV-i'l -if .___������    i-t-P    o r. . i,  X IXC.

Canada and particularly in  the west, can best be realized by comparisons. The United States in 1914  planted ,.3,541,000 acres in wheat and  raised the phenomenal crop of S9-1,-  000,000 bushels���������the largest on record.  The single province of Saskatchewan  has almost double this acreage that is  suitable for wheat growing. In proof  of what it can do, it has already raised  a wheat crop of more than 100,000,000  bushels, and its total planted area in  wheat, oats, barley and flax has  crossed the 10,000,000 acre mark. It  has a total acreage suitable for cultivation of 93,000,000 acres. Directly to  the east lies Manitoba, which has 74,-  000,000 acres suitable for growing  wheat, oats, barley and flax.  "The   most   interesting   of   all   the  western  provinces is Alberta. Its climate is milder than that of Saskatchewan   or  Manitoba,   and  here  agricultural  development  in  all  its  variety  is in  progress.    In addition to growing wheat, barley, oats and flax, it is  supporting   rapidly   growing   growing  dairy and live stock industries.   Three  hundred  and   twenty-five   miles   from  tho   Montana   boundary   lies   the   Edmonton district, one of the most prosperous diversified districts in the Dominion. From Bclnlonton to Athabaska  Landing���������100  miles  distant���������the  railway runs through a prosperous mixed  farming country.    To    the northwest,  300   miles   from   Athabaska   Landing,  lies' the rich lands of tho Peace River  country.    In tbo .Pr-ma Hiver country,  wlrch is incorporated in tho provmes  of Alberta, the growth of wheat, oats  ami barley ,v.d many other staples, in-  ���������"in. ing vegetables in great variety, is  a proven success;  and when the railways   come   in  from   tho   coast,   this  country is bound to contribute largely  to tho world's supply of food.  "The futuro of the province of Alberta is ono of absorbing interest. It  hn;. a vast, expanse of land that will  grow tho best g ins in tho world, a  total of* 105,000,000 acres, or nearly  double the entiro area planted in  wheat by the United States last year,  which was ..3,nil,000 acres.  "While agriculture'is Canada's chief  industry, thoro are many others of importance. Manufacturing is expanding  year by year and in tho cenfnis your  of 1910 lilm latcist for which reliable  figures are available) tho annual production had reached a total value ol  $l,<>r*0,n00. This (loos not include tho  output, of several thousands of butter  and chooso factories, which is embraced in the category of agriculture.

Notwithstanding her temporary successes, and they are only  temporary, in the eastern theatre of  war, millions of homes in Germany are  in mourning; other millions will be  added before the great war for which  the kaiser above all men is responsible, will be ended.  Germany's commerce with the outside world, owing to the command of  the seas by the allied fleets, is nil,  and her business men, robbed first  to fill the war chest of the war lord,  .are facing ruin. The great thrust  at Warsaw, designed to inspire hope  of'victory is really "meant to rob them  of more money under the guise of subscriptions to another war loan which  will leave the empire facing, if not  really in, bankruptcy. Germany's colonies are disappearing. First it was  Kiaochau, taken by Germany from  China by trick and theft and now in  the hands of the subtle Japanese.  Then followed German Southwest Af  rica, conquered ..by the redoubtable  Boer turned British Gen. Louis Boths  and added to the possessions of the  British empire, and all signs indicate that every vestige of territory  which she has annexed in lands be-  yon-d her borders will ��������� be lost. The  German, flag is no; longer seen upon,  the sea.  Her grea,t fleet of commercial vessels : have been either captured or  idle at home or are interned in neutral lands. Her great war fleet, too,  is locked in behind the Bight of Heligoland, and Ler only triumphs by sea  are those achieved by her submarines:  in attacks on unarmed passenger ves-  sels or fishing s'macks.  Whenever and .-wherever the British and German navies have met, gun  for gunj as in the battle of the Falkland Islands, the British have won,  and so at the close of a year or warfare, the ships-of the Germany navy  outside of those in sanctuary at Kiel,  have been swept from the seas, and  Britannia still rules the ._vaves.r  Because of this British domination  of the sea, Germany, through its  agents and propagandists in America,  has sought by appealing to sectional  interests, the cotton growers of the  south, for instance, to embroil the  United States with England, but these  plots have been abortive, the pro"-  German strikes in the munition works  of New England have failed and the  kaiser and his government stand convicted by the jury of American public  opinion as murderers and this verdict  is info reed by every neutral nation in  the world.

Milking Kecords  Of Dairy Cattle  Annual   Report Contains 152 Pages of  Information  Of more'than ordinary interest to  dairymen is the seventh annual report of the milking records of purebred dairy cattle, just issued by the  federal department of agriculture.  Nine years ago the livestock branch  of the federal department of agriculture, in co-operation with certain record associations representing breeds  of d-iiry cattle, began to record the  performance of pure-bred milking  cows. Each record association ugreed  upon a standard of yield for cows  for its respective breed to qualify for  registration, while the livestock commissioner formulated regulations under which the tests were to be carried  out. At the end of each year a report has been issued containing a list  of the animals that qualified for registration during the year, together  with their breed,*age, ownership, milking period, production of milk and fat,  and such other Information as might  reasonably be looked for in an official  report.  Each year the work has increased  until the seventh report, just issued,  contains no less than 152 pages of  information- puring tho year 413  cows qualified for registration, including IUC Holsteln���������*, 123 Ayrshires, 35  Jerseys, 9 Guernseys, 11 French-Canadians, nnd 3G Shorthorn*.. The highest records mado wore: Shorthorn  li',;>3.'> pounds milk. 5*10 pound*- fat;  Frenoh-Cunadion, 10.7G7 pounds milk,  4G3 pounds fat; Gucrnney, 11,445  pounds milk, 520 pounds fat; Holsteln,  23.737 pound;; mill;, G31 pcuada fat:  Jcrr.oy, in,*.!! poundr* milk, 754 potine" .  fat; Ayrnhlrc, 30,690 pounds mi lie, 729  pounds fat.  Will  Be  Open the Year  Round���������may  Be Ready This Fall  By October 1 Russia hopes to have  a double track railway in operatioi-  leading direct from Petrograd througl-  Petrozavodsk to Kola and the Arct.it/  ocean. This new line will parallel th'i  present single track road, which connects Archangel with Vologda, but  will lie more than two hundred miles  to the -westward. What is more important is the fact ^that on the completion of the new* road Russia will  have an all-year-round open connection with ;he western seas, and this  open communication will be maintained through Ekaterina, at the head of  the Gulf of*fc_ola.  The distance between Kola and Eh-  aterina is about thirty-five miles. In  the winter timo the ice prevents vessels approaching Kola closer than ten  and a half miles. In the harbor of  .-katerina ice is seldom seen except  for a short period around the la.c cl .  lN-bruary or early in March, and then  only during winters of unusual severity.  Ekatesina enjoys the advantage of  being near to tho Gulf Stream. It is  expected that with the inauguration  of the new service communication can  be had between Ekaterina and Petrograd in twenty-four hours' time.  The Klomma Works at Golutrin,  province of Moscow, are building Mallet compound freight locomotives for  the Arctic service. These engines  have a weight of 64.& tons, and -will  burn either coal or oil.

Subscription: $2 a yea;- in advance;  $2.50 to United States points.  O. F. Kayss, Owner and Editor.  CRESTON, B.C..  FRIDAY, OCT.   8  580*&  a couple snore in sight.  At  In connection with the recent  ultimatum from the education department for a paying in oi* some  $530 of taxes before any further  money can be turned over to the  Creston school district, while admitting the soundness of the policy  speaking generally, one cannot help  but feel that the present system of  financing the school is out of joint  somewhere.  Under   present    conditions   the  government   takes unto  itself all  the authority for levying  and collecting  practically  every   cent   of  oar school money, handing it over  to the trustees as required, if available.    For reasons best known to  themselves the  authorities at Victoria have been lax  in collecting or  enforcing  payment of school taxes  during  the  past   two   years and,  naturally,  the  treasury is empty,  and  the  matter of keeping thing-  going  a   serious   problem   for   the  trustees.  In all f&irress it seems to us that  if   the   government,   is   --lone  ail-  powerful  in the matter of collecting school  monies if through poor  management or kindheartedness it-  fails to gather in sufficient funds to  pay the  schools' running  expenses  it should suffer for its  of  affairs by being compelled   to  make th������ customary remittances to  school treasurers just the same as  though the taxes were rolling in  without let or hindrance.  And too add injury to insult, as  it were, in case the government has  not revenue available and funds  have to be borrowed tbe banks will  have nothing to do with a school  distriot note bxit insist on a personal  note signed by one or more of the  trustees. Unless some changes are  made in this direction trustees of  standing will soon be unprocurable.  Someone will be sure to say  that to enforce payment of school  rates the last two years wonld have  meant a sale of land for taxes. It  possibly would have caused that  same thing���������with some���������though in  Nelson, Kaslo and some other  places the mere announcement of  that procedure had the effect of  bringing in sufficient back dues to  make the proposed Bale unnecessary.  w.tn  Grand Forks the total,. carload  shipments of the same fruits had  reached 25.  Against these two rivals Creston  can point to an export of at least  20 oars of strawberries and raspberries alone, and fully 20 cars of  apples, plums and pears to date, to  say nothing of tomatoes and other  vegetables.  It was on the score of quantity  and qualify of production that the  proposal to overlook Creston on the  recent trip gob Mr. Winslow in  wrong with all classes. It is possible he was not aware of the extent of the Valley's production up  to the present The Review will  undertake to see that he gets the  figures on  the various  crops when  the  C1IXXXXX.V.X       ������->*_&  V_% -.wi.. or  -���������ft"-"*-*  statement is  issued in January.

Better Next Year  Provided the project is tackled  with renewed energy at an earlier  season in 1916 it is probably just as  well for the Valley that the much-  talked-of visit of the Calgary business men was abandoned for this  year.  To see this country at its best  and in weather seasonable for a  combined business nnd pleasure trip  u date some weeks earlier than that  decided upon for this year's exour-  Hion is desirable.  We fancy, too, that in the meantime the men most interested in  snaking the trip will devote some  timo Ut studying up British Columbia's fruit-producing areas and will  thus Vie .in a position to know  <"*Mf������tly whn.1, points it would bo  mottt iidvavitageoiiH to visit, transportation facilities pei-miMing, of  course.

Hon.   A.   I_-   Sifton,   premier of  Alberta, in a recent  speech in Edmonton did not hesitate to express  some very frank opinion concerning  the   Canadian     bankiug% system,  pointing   out   that  under present  conditions the deposits in Canadian  ha������ks had  increased to  an extent  shandlang which made the banks contemplate  a reduction   in   their  interest rate,  while at  the  same  time Canadian  securities  were  going   begging   in  foreign markets and paying a high  rate of intei-est.  The premier warmed up in great  style on this topic, intimating that  no finance minister in Canada, of  either party, had ever yet had the  courage to handle the banks as  they should he handled.  Premier Sifton's remedy for the  present state of affairs is the small  community bank, having no  branches, organized and controlled  by local capital aud devoted to the  support of local institutions.  The suggestion is not altogether  a happy one in view of the financial  ruin wrought in eastern communities some years ago by the failure  of many of these private banks.  Discussing the matter recently  the Calgary Herald observed: "It  does not require that one should be  a critic of the banking system to  support this smaller bank idea. It  seems to the Herald that the two  sets of institutions would be collateral to one another in their uaful-  neas. It would be worth while for  the banks of Canada to notice the  rapidly increasing amount of discussion on this important topic, and  to pay due attention to it. Any  attempt to ignore it can only lead  to trouble."  Your money bach it goods  are not satisfactory  1  Phone 63  SPEERS  General Merchant CRESTON  The Review has never favored  the unrestricted franchise that  obtains today. We are still old-  fashioned enough to believe that  the responsibilities of government  should be entrusted to those who  have some proportion of material  interest in the good conduct of  public affairs, and that in that regard there should be no sex distinctions.  Admitting the error of making  the franchise wide-open to men one  hesitates to concur in the move of  the Alberta premier extending the  same courtesy to women though,  naturally, the framers of the law  will argue that if all men are  allowed to vote���������as they are and  are likely to be���������then the welfare  of the state is not endangered by  allowing all women t������> vote.

Its motto, "For Home and Country,"  speaks for itself ih the institutes activities. The regular meetings once a  month with mixed subjects for discussion and interchange of ideas stimulate the brain to activity, whilst the  social intercourse provides a little  variety in the life of the busy worker.  From good home training is the race  led along the line of progress, and the  mothers whose motto is "For home  and country," and who live up to it,  cannot fail to hand down to posterity  those who will- make: good citizens.  For wonen, home first, and reaching  out afar the influence of that home  over country.  Au Institute that has all the women  of a district interested will be loyal  and patriotic. It will have larger  outlook and. higher icl-sis* Each  member will well work for improvement of any condition needing it in  her vicinity and as a natural consequence they will be improved.  The Institute should be an antidote  for ionliness and mom-tony, for its  members should be noted for good  fellowship and sympathy. The fees  are 50 cents per annum and young  people may join. Meetings will be at  a central point to be decided upon  later.  Mrs. James Johnston will come from  Nelson in the near - future to help organize our branch, due notice of which  will be sent to those who haye already  joined. Thanking you, Mr. Editor for  space.

"Ann the great stone face's.'' she  added in a voice in which there was a  touch  of awe.  "Let  us  go nearer and  ascend  stairs,"  I   said,  taking-  her hand  leading the way. and she was so  occupied that she did not notice.  I  observed   as   we   approached  stairs  that  the  rock    had  been  worn  cots,   by tbe wind and weather, or  the  passing  of  many  feet  practicable    for    ascent.  *.

So  small is their size, compared with the  ordinary breed, that they have been,  called "vest pocket" cows. One of the  most famous Kerry show bulla, JJusa-  co, measured bu*: 3-1 inches in height  at the withers when two years old.  His length from withers to tail end  was :.'.- inches and his heart girth 50  inches. Another famous bull weighed but 400 pounds.  From time immemorial the Kerry  has been bred in Ireland, where it is  known (as the "poor man's cow." It  has for'centuries been the cow of the  Irish peasant cottager, and is supposed to be a descendant of the aboriginal cattle of Ireland. In color  it is usually black, though red some-  as j times occurs. White may occur about  re i the  udder  or  scrotum,   but  it  is  not  of  wall   Ik  dense,  lux- i desirable.  Progress was diifi-   standing  \ egetauon  en  in   tbe  pathway.    It  sax impossible in some places  iny  hea.y cutlass with which  path where the place had be-  i j  ie overgrown by trees and bushes  which had forced their way through  the cracks, overturning and breaking  the heavy flagstones and bloc-king up  the path,"    which  it  was*   evident had  ploring.

The Dexter-Kerry branch  of the breed is more block in type,  shorter legged, heavier of head and  neck, more beefy in type than the  true Kerry, and usually smaller.  As a milk producer the Kerry ranks \ *  high   in proportion  to her  size.    Ac- !  cording to English authorities, twelve  quarts of milk daily  dui'ing the  season and from six to seven pounds of  butter per   week    are  the   estimated  yields    bf    a  Kerry  cow,    and  cows  somslimes  give as  much as    sixteen ���������  quarts of milk per- day for some time  (By   Thos.   R.   Hunt).  In a recent issue of Hardware and  Metal I read of a ".Dollar Day" sale  held at Cornwall, Out-, which according to the merchants resulted in a  great deal of business for them. Tho  part that impressed me most, however, was a -statement to the effect  that remarks were made on all sides  about the number ot" automobiles in  the town, driven by farmers, all of  whom brought in large jiumbers from,  every point of the compass. The ownership of so many automobiles by  farmers indicates that the tillers of  the soil are particularly well off these  times and demonstrates a source of  revenue for the aggressive merchant  who advertises judiciously and uses  other salesmanship methods to get  these people into his store.  The farmers, many of whom, a few-  years ago resented ihe advent of the  automobile, are rapidly falling into  line, and becoming users of automobiles.  A. prominent automobile dealer recently stated that over 75 per cent, of  ins business so far this year had been  with farmers.. In a certain city in  Western Canada, it is claimed that  two years ago there were 1,000 cars in  use.    Today it is said the number is  about     GOO.  the   balance   of the   cars  having- been sold to farmers.  Take a look through the list of automobile license owners in Ontario and  you will find that thousands of licenses have been issued to car owners  antoists? The bulk of the business  will undoubtedly . be handled through  the retail hardware tra*de in the small  towns in Canada.  The large cities will always secure  a huge volume of auto accessory business, but in the years to come the  small town, and the rural trade will  undoubtedly be much greater in volume than the trade of the larger  cities. -  Is it any wonder therefore, that  makers of auto accessories are trying  hard to secure distribution of their  products through the small town merchants throughout the agricultural  districts of Canada? Many of our best  retail hardwaremen, in small towns,  who study changing conditions and  look well into the future, realize that  although the auto accessory business  in their particular towns may be to  some extent limited at the present  time, there is a great future for the  onto accessory line and they are gradually working iuto the auto accessory-  business���������feeling their way, and adding from time to time such lines as  they think will sell.  The small town merchant who is today laying the foundation for a large'  auto-accessory department, and who is  growing with ths business, is the man  who a few years hence will occupy a  commanding position in the retailing  of a line that is new in many respects  and will be in the years to come, a  hardware staple just as nails and  builders' hardware are today.  ��������� ./.a. __?-  ing. with us somo provisions, tor wc  might have to go clear around the  island, we presently sta*,te_ out.  I felt very easy in my mind regarding any present peril from the ship.  for I knew that no boat she possess  1-������." ..  i winning  in and  out among the trees  i through the jungle, the path evidently  j seeking    the most level   direction for  i the top  of  the   wall was  very  much  .! broken   and  irregular.  d !     At last we came to an open spot on  d i the inner cdg2 overlooking the whole  even if she had had another like the  dinghy I was confident that there was  no man aboard her that had the  strength and skill; to say nothing of  the courage, to bring her through. If  there were 'no natives or wild beasts  to be feared we were at least safe for  the time being.  ''Think you, Master Hampdon." said  my little Mistress, "this is the island  of which my ancestor wrote?"  *'l am sure of it," I replied-  "Me referred to it, if I remember  right, as the 'Island of the Stairs," did  lie not?"  "Yes," was my answer. "You remember he indicated a stairway about  the middle of the island."  "Surely, if we are to get to the top  of yonder wall it must be by stairs of  some sort."  "It would i.ot be difficult to climb  it," I assented, "for a man, that is,  save for one thing."  "And what is that?"  "These pinnacles of rock arc as  sharp as needles. It would be like  climbing broken glass. The climber  would be cut to pieces before ha had  gone halt way."  "Then if we find no stairs we are in  a bad fix." she said thoughtfully, examining the towering wall.  "There must be stair.," I answered.  "There must be a way. The latitude  and longitude agree wtih your ancestor's description and I make no doubt  wo shall chance upon them."  So we tramped along, searching the  shore and sea and rinding nothing.  After perhaps an hour's monotonous  going, wh-ii wo had traversed about  a third of the distance of the island,  we rounded a projection of the cliff  and ihere before us rose Ihe stairs!  What w������.* saw was a tJ^antic stairway, irregular, but made of huge  block- of rough hewn stone, not coral  rock, but harder stone of firmer texture, like i_ranlto almost. 1 was not  familiar with The stone either.

The Avail ended  abruptly and fell on the inner or landward side as precipitously as it rose  outwardly and to seaward. Before us lay a most entrancing valley,  perhaps three or four miles across  .and maybe half as long again in tha  other direction and which,was Availed  about on every hand- It Avas sunk beneath this wall crest for perhaps 100  feet or more.  In the centre of the valley the land  rose a little higher than the island  wall in a very considerable hill, tree  crowned on the slopes, but largely  bare on the crest. Through the valley  ran a brook, which ended in a little  lake, which I suspected had some subterranean connection with the ocean.  As far as we could see and the whole  circuit of the island was now clearly  visible to us-:���������the inclosing wall -was  unbroken. The valley was filled with  clusters of trees, and alternating  stretches of grassy meadow.  We should have been hard put to it  to descend the wall to the valley were  it not for the fact that the same people who built the stairs that gave access to the. wall from the sea had built  a similar flight, which led to the valley.  Before we essayed the descent of the  stnirs we drank our fill of the beauty  and mysterious charm of it all. Indeed, there wns no sound that came to  us except the twittering of the birds,  of which there were many, brilliantly  plnnuig'id, flittering in the trees.

"No." said 1: "those, nro coral rocks,  and thoro is no sign of lava about.

Women are not one whit less patriotic than men, and at times of national peril thoy are stirred and exalted by precisely the same impulses and  emotions as their fathers, husbauds,  brothers and sons. At the present  time, when the whole <lestinlcs of  Britain and of the empire of which it  is the heart are at sfaUo, British women yearn to place at. the service of  their country their vast capacities for  labor and sacrifice, They cannot take  their places on our ships of war, they  cannot light in the trenches. But over  and above those duties of motherhood,  thero is nothing moro sacred or more  patriotic, wide holds of service are  open al homo in time of war. --London  Daily Chronicle.

In '  fact, owners in the smaller towns and  cities nnd in the rural districts outnumber by many thousands those of  the few large cities in Canada.  \ And this state of affairs is not by  ���������any means con lined to Ontario alone.  The same condition exists in nearly  all of the other provinces in Canada.  Not only are the farmer- buying pleasure cars, but in many sections of the  country they are buying trucks l'or  their own use.  Commenting on the fact that Henry  Ford has bought 1,00(1 acres of land  near Detroit on which to build a farm  tractor factory to employ 20,000 men,  ���������a writer mentions that the tractor  will- cost .1.200 and will contain the  regular Ford engine. Continuing, the  Chicago Journal says that only a practical farming man can see full possibilities of such a machine. It will  cost the price of ono good horse ami  will do the work of llvo or six. It will  pull a gang plow to two or three "hot-  tonii-," pull a mower or a binder, will  cut ensilage, pump water and saw  wood. It will be a general farm servant, oafing only whon ii. woikb, and  at that only cheap gasoline. Tho agricultural machinery makers will have  their llrst. real competition in years.

The mail order houses  ���������always among the first to push a  new and profitable line are featuring  auto accessories .strongly. Hardware  wholesalers are pushing the sale of,  and taking a greater interest in auto  accessories. Many retail hardware-  men have already built up very creditable ' auto accessory departments,  and in addition have the local  agencies for well known makes of  cars. The possibilities at present are  great, and they are growing rapidly.  In almost every hardware store, many  of the regular stock articles are in  reality auto accessories. The cost of  putting in a few additional sure selling  lines would not be very great.  "Auto accessories" are truly a hardware line with great possibilities.

Straw a  Nutritious  Food  War, with its attendant isolation  of Germany from the importation  of raw materials ami foodstuffs, has  Btimualted the efforts of German  scientists to discover new uses for  seemingly waste products.

By laceration of the  inedible cell wails, he has freed the  nutritive substances within, and has  *ma*de a flour containing cellulose,  various sugars, mineral salts ' a_.i  alkalis.

The excessive heat throws  the little stomach out of order so  quickly that unless prompt aid is at  hand the baby may be beyond all  human help before the mother realizes  he is ill. Summer is the season when  diarrohoea, cholera infantum, dys entry and colic are most prevalent. Any  one of these troubles may prove deadly if not promptly treated. During  the summer the mothers' best friend  is Saba's Own Tablets. Th?v _e-u-  late the bowels, sweeten the stomach  and keep baby healthy.
