Reid. president of the Creston  board of trade received a Wir^. to that  effect Thursday morning.  Although the B.C. fruit officials and  ���������the Calgary board of. trade seem to  have been out with a, dragnet-for days  past .trying to secure enough passen-  gees to ensure a special train they  were not successful, and rather than  spoil such trip by travelling on the re.  gular train, the tour has been cancelled for this year.  A quite large and thoroughly representative gathering of representatives of both; the ranching and business  elements was on hand Monday night  for the meeting to discuss ways and  means of entertaining and showing off  the country and its staple products to   tomato crop.   This   week   will  about  K.J. Long returned on Saturday  from Nelson fair, looking little the  worse for the nignt-before's dinner of  bannock and beans of Fred Hurry's  making.

They moved from Creston  oh Saturday and are occupying the  recehtlyrerected Palmer residence.  ' E. Botterii! spent a- few davs with  his family here last week.

Sunday's all-day rainfall has put the  fields in great shape for fall ploughing.  Dick Smith returned on Saturday'  from a month's harvesting operations  at Clare.holm, Alta. He states 'that  all varieties of grain are showing a  better yield than first anticipated.  The fruit-loading platform at  Smith's crossing was taken up this  week, and storeel away carefully for  1010 use.  The Soldiers Ladies Aid is meeting  this week at Mrs.-Matthews'. The last  gathering was at Mrs. Stewarts, when  nearly all the members were out and  considerable sewing wuh elono.  Dr. Hall, the visiting dentist at Creston, is making tho iicquaiiitance of  quite a number of emr people. Already he has had almost a dozen  clients from here.  W. A. Pesse has been taking things  a little easier the past ten days. In  endeavoring to get clear of a falling  woodpile he tripped on u plank, giving  his shoulder and arm im uncomfortable sprain.  Another uncomfortable incident last  week was a collision nt the Smith  crossing between- the O.P.R. roael-  mantcronhio cpccdcr nnd Mr. Wehti-  ter's.dog, which suddenly appeared  from under the loading platform to  see what all the noise was about coming down the track.

No sound had come from the  ship and the lights iu the cabin which  at Orst we could see dimly presently  disappeared. Our escape had not been  discovered. I suggested at last that  she should go to sleep- 1 arranged the  boat cloak and blankets and although  she had to be much persuaded I finally prevailed upon her to lie down in  the boat, her head :by my knees and  ihus we -sailed on through the night.  When day broke I hauled aft the  sheet and headed the boat to the  southward, for I had now* -crossed the  head of the island and could run down  the other side. By the time it was  fairly dawn I n.ad made enough south-  .ing to place the north end of the island oetwean ourselves and the si-in.  me than on the ship, whereat my  heart pounded, but I had sense enough  to say nothing. Her loneliness and  helplessness appealed to nie. 1 might  have been hold under other circumstances, but not now.  Well, we coasted along that barrier  reef a good part of the morning until  we reached the other end of the island  and discovered to our dismay that  there was absolutely no opening, no  break in it through which we could  make our way. When we reached the  lowrer end my lady was for sailing  around on the other side, but this I  did not dare- We had heard nothing  from the ship or her boats, and I  didn't propose to arouse any pursuit  hy coming- within possible range of  her glasses.

The inland v������as unlike _.uv I had  ever looked upon. In the first place,  like most Pacific islands, it was inclosed by a barrier reef, over which  the waves broke in whitecaps as far  as I could see. I supposed that somewhere there would be an opening in  the roof through which we could sail.  That was invariably the case with all  S������i--i-.      i c - o _. r? c*     t-V-of-     T     1***sl      ������_"*__-*-     t-������*__"_ *"!*"���������*  or read about. But I could not see  the opening from, the boat yet. The  lagoon encloseu by the barrier reef  seemed to be a quarter or half a mile  v. ins.  The strangest part of the whole  scene was that the island itself looked  like a whitish gray wall rising straight  up from the lagoon for, I suppose,  from 150 feet in the lowest part to 300  feet or more without a break. It stood  up likt a solid rampart of stone. From  where we were I couldn't see the end  of the island, although from my inspection of it tne day before I judged  it might he six or eight miles long,  and as I had sailed past it I estimated  it was about the same breadth and  nearly circular in. shape.  A long distance away on the other  side and hard to be seen at all from  the level of the sea in the small boat  lay other islands, faintly outlined on  the far horizon.  T   s'Tpose    T     must have thrashed  about somewhat when I brought, the  dingy    to    the wind and changed her  course,   for  presently  my  little  mistress awoke. She sat up intsantly, and  after the briefest acknowledgment of  my good morning and the briefest reply to my inquiry as to how she did,  she stared at the land toward which  v;������ wero edging in so far as the wind  would  allow.    It was a  bleak, inhospitable looking place, that gray, rough  wall, in spite of its infrequent crusting of verdure, I will admit, and she,  too. found it so.    After she bad stared  hard at the land she oast an anxious  glance     to    leeward,  but, of course,  could make nothing of the distant islands there. w  "We must get ashore," .aid I. r'as  .���������--on  as  possible.

Fortunately the tide was making toward the shore of the island. I select- \ open-kettle  ed a spot where the huge, rolling  waves seemed to break more smoothly than elsewhere, which argued a  greater depth of water over the barrier, less roughness and fewer possibilities of being wrecked on the jagged points of the coral reef.

Just before T reached it.  I threw- the oars inboard, seized one of  them, which I wished to use as a  steering oar, and stepped aft past nay  lady, who sat a little forward and well  down in the bottom of the boat. I  braced myself in the stern sheets and  waited. We were racing toward that  reef with dizzy speed, rising with the  uplift up the wave. I had just time  for one word-  "If we die," I shouted, ''remember  that I have been your true servant always."  She nodded her head, her eyes glistening, and then I lost sight of her. A  huge roller overtook us. The little  boat rose and rose and rose with a  giddy, furious motion. Suddenly it began to turn. If it went broadside to  the reef and a wave caught it or one  broke over it we should be lost, hut I  had foreseen the danger. I threw out  my oar and with every pound of  strength in arm, leg and body, I thrust  blindly, desperately, against the rush  of the sea. It was an unequal com  bat, a man against the Pacific ocean.  I couldn't have maintained it for long.  And yet it seemed hours. The strain  was terrific.  The wave we were rifling broke just  as we reached the top. We sank down  into what seemed a valley of water,  the spray fell over u3 like rain. We  _ank lower and lower, thero was a  sound of grinding along the keel. We  had struck the coral evidently. I  thought this was all. for another moment and the bottom would have been  ripped out of her, but no, we were  over in safety.

She can with little labor and expense  put up in cans every vegetable that  grows in her garden if she knows the  simple cold-pack method of home cau-  ning.  The establishment of the home canning clubs by the department of agriculture brought about more general  appreciation of the fact that factory  methods could be utilized in home  canning���������hence the adoption of the  cold-pack method.  Exhaustive experiments and endless study of the problem by experts  and specialists of the department  have proved beyond a question of  doubt that it is not only possible but  practicable to can in the home any  vegetable or fruit than can be grown  in the home garden or orchard, without resorting to the three-day or  fractional sterilization method. Furthermore the product will keep as surely as though it were put up by a commercial canning factory, and it will be  much better. More than 100,000 girls  and mothers received detailed instruction in this method of canning last  season and as many homes now have  the blessings incident to a balanced  ration Of fruits and -vegetables  throughout the entire year.  Under the common method of home  canning followed hy the women of a  few years ago���������what is now called the  method���������the product was  cooked or sterilized in an open kettle  and then transferred to a jar, the rubber and top were put in place, and the  product was put away in cellar or  storeroom.

By sealing the jars  before we sterilize we have kept addi-  full pack. If possible blanch the  greens in a steamer for ten to twenty  minutes instead of boiling in water,  In order that the volatile oils may not  be lost.  Pack the. products in the jars. If  you are canning berries or fruit fill the  spaces about the products with j.yrup.  Since tomatoes are ninety-four per  cent- water no water should he added  to this pack. Other vegetables require  some water, and .a little salt should  be added to flavor. Place rubbers and  tops in position. With screw-top jars  screw down the tops until they catch  but are not tight. Do not try to force  them. If -".'on are usin0, -iars with wir^  clamps leave the lower clamps up.  Place the jars in 3'our canning outfit  and sterilize the required time.  The instructions of the specialist in  charge of home-canning clubs of the  Northern, Central and Western States  divide the fruits into four general  classes: Soft fruits, such as peaches,  berries, plums and the like; sour berries, fruits, such as currants, gooseberries, and cranberries; hard fruits,  such as apples and pears; and citrus  fruits-  Always invert jars to cool and to  test the joints after the covers have  been tightened and before the products have been cooled. Probably as  many jars of canned fruit and vegetables are lost because of poor rubbers as by any other cause. It is the  poorest economy to use last year's  rubbers or to buy a cheap grade.  Remember in all canning work that  no printed recipe or other form of instruction will succeed without the application of common sanse and practical judgment. All recipes given here  are based upon normal, ripe, firm  fruits and vegetables.  The cold-pack method of canning  may be utilized to advantage in the  canniii0* of sou^s and ~*tir_es for Winter use and in the canning of fruit  juices. In writing- to the department  for canning instructions include a request for these recipes.  Reducing the cost of living through  the home canner is rapidly becoming  a settled practice in city as well as  rural homes.

Yet there is one thing  about it. It stimulates the brains of  inventors, and chemists and scientists in all the countries involved are  ���������working at-high pressure.  A Some ara busy about purely military inventions, some to evolve substitutes for materials of industry, of  which the import has suddenly  ceased.'others-again ..are working for  the benefit of the sick and wounded.  -.'It was the Boer war which taught  lis the value ($. anti-typhoid inoculation. Nowadays, not only soldiers,  but, travellers and explorers and-.all  those who may have to risk drinking  impure water go in for this inoculation, which in the long run will probably put an end to the ravages of  one of mankind's worst enemies.  The present war has already seen  at least three important new medical inventions, the most valuable of  which is undoubtedly the new serum  called Coagulen.  Coagulen is the invention of the  great Swiss surgeon, Professor*  Kocher. It is in the form'of a'powder, which before use is mixed with  water. Applied to a wound, it almost  instantly coagulates the blood and  stops the bleeding, whether"'external'  or internal. It shortens surgical  operations and makes them less  dangerous. The French medical headquarters speak most highly of coagulen. It will, no doubt, come into general use in all surgical operations.  Professor Frauhez, an Austrian  doctor, has discovered a preventive  against typhus. It is a mixture containing anisol, which almost instantly  destroys the hitherto invulnerable insect which transmits the infection of  spotted typhus.  The odd thing- about the discovery  is that it came by chance. The professor's assistant was told to use  anise oil in the mixture which was being prepared. Instead he put in anisol.  A third invention which will be almost as useful in peace as in war  is a method for taking almost instantaneous X-ray photographs. Hitherto an exposure of many minutes has  been necessary for X-ray photos.

The chief disadvantage of  the searchlight has been that it could  not be used in a ship that ha_. not  an electric installation.  This has now been changed. A  new searchlight has been evolved in  which a mixture of acetylene and  oxygen is burnt, and the flame played  on a small pellet of eeria, which  emits an amazingly powerful light.  The outfit is quite light and portable and can be carried and used by  two men. It will be most valuable  both o��������� aea and land.  , Water wireless is another product  of this tremendous struggle which  will probably in the future save thousands of human lives from collision  at sea. -^  At present it is being used for the  detection of submarines; in the future  passenger vessels will find it invaluable in time of fog.  The French have a new air bomb  which, when it bursts, produces cold  so intense that the aviator who first  used them in November, last has  placed it on record that he "distinctly  felt the chill at a height of 800 feet.  It is suggested that a modification of  these bombs will prove extremely useful in fire fighting, and will enable  firemen to get to close quarter-, with  the intense flame produced by the  burning of oil wells.  Britain's Big Fleet  Is  Not Loafing on  the^Job  The London Times publishes an article written by the Most Rev. Cosmo'  Gordon Lang, Archbishop .of York, in  which he says: ���������"  To share the life of the Grand  fleet, .even for a short time, enables  one tb realize the sacrifices its officers and men have made and are making for their country.  We are entering the second year of  the war. For twelve months the fleet  has been enduring the strain of immediate readiness for battle. Almost  all its ships have been constantly at  sea. They had no harbors secure  from, danger; they roamed ceaselessly over the waste of the northern and  western seas at full speed, often in  wild weather, with water covering the  decks, in a region where the winter  daylight lasts only a few hours, each  ship moving hither and thither in the  dark, her hundreds of men shut down  below.  It is almost impossible to realize  the strain of such an experience. The  officers and men have all the responsibilities of war without the- thrill  and excitement of battle.  i_������ay by day they have to be ready  for action. Leave of absence is  almost impossible; many of them have  not had 48 hours' leave, few.have had  more, since the war began.  Yet, in ;_pite of all, they are full of  cheerfulness. On deck you may see  the officers wrestling with the mighty  ���������'medicine bail/''men playing cricket,  quoits, every variety of ingenious  games'. Thanks to excellent food,  fresh air aad the absence of shore  temptations, the health of * the fleet  is admirable. When I was with the  largest section, the rate of sickness,  including accidents, was just under  one per cent.  There was no haste, no bustle, no  confusion; every ship in her place,  every man at his post was ready. The  Grand .Fleet does not ask our gratitude; it does not ask our support- It  was simply intolerable to be greeted  on. returning from, the fleet by the  ���������news of one of our unworthy domestic disputes threatening the coal  supply, which is the first necessity of  its life.  It has become more plain than  ever that it does not rest only with  the fleet and the army to win this  war: it rests also perhaps mainly,  with the nation at home. I tried to  take a message from the country to  the fleet; would that I could now  bring the message from the fleet to  the country:  "We are doing our part day and  night;  we look to you to do yours."

An Oil That is Famous.-r-Though  Canada was not the birthplace of Dr.  Thomas' Eclectric Oil, it is the home  of that famous compound.

That is  far afield enough to uttest its excellence, for in all these countries it ia  on cale and in demand.  A Minority Report  A small, meek country negro, who  had always lived on one place near  Frankfort, Kentucky, married a big  domineering woman, and very soon  afterward moved into town, where  the keeper of the local bar met him  on tho street.

Efficiency   Campaign   Results   in   the  Elimination of Drink  That the efficiency campaign looking to the elimination of drink and  drinkers from European mills and  factories employed in the production  of munitions of war is having its effect iu this country is shown herewith. The New York World has made  inquiries at several ammunition plants  of what rules are in force regarding  the' employment of drinking men.  Some of th;. replies follow:  Pittsburgh, Pa.���������First steps to drive  drink from the Pittsburgh industries  engaged in the manufacture of munitions for the allies, or likely to be  called upon in a crisis to fill similar  orders for this country will be taken  soon by the Aetna Chemical Company,  manufacturers of explosives. Major  Joseph T. Crabbs, general manager  here, admitted this a few da.ys ago.  Much as the Duponts have done, the  Aetna people will put up the bars  against John Barleycorn among its  two thousand workers in three plants  in the Pittsburg district.  "These new regulations have been  in preparation for some time and are  about ready; they will be strict," said  Major Crabbs. "I cannot go into details about them beyond saying that  they will discourage intemperance."  At the offices of the Carnegie Steel  Company the principal constituent  company of the United States Steel  Corporation, what has been done to  discourage drinking in the past was  readily unfolded as an answer for tho  future. For one of tho tweuty thousand employes to bring intoxicants into any of the plants of the company  means instant dismissal.  Carelessness the Cause of More Than  Half of the  Forest Fires  1.

The statement from the superin-
1 education at Victoria
that Creston school had an overdraft of $530 with the provincial
treasurer, and until such time as
that amount was paid in in taxes
the government would refuse to
advance the trustees further money-
is something that should have the
serious consideration of every ratepayer included in the Creston school
And be it known that this $530
due the government is not the
only pressing liability the  trustees
somewhere near on an even keel
financially the school management
has been compelled to borrow
money from the bank as well. This
money has been loaned on the
.security of the persons! notes of a
couple of the trustees.
As the trustees are neither millionaires or philantrophisrs, to say
nothing o! the bank's aversion to
keep on making these loans even
were the trustees wilim**** to thus
pledge their personal security���
which they are not, naturally���
within the nest few weeks a considerable amount of taxes has got

the letter from the department
means what it says and the trustees carry out their determination
to refuse to go good at the bank
for the necessary finance.
The situation is by no means
peculiar to Creston. Most every
municipality in the province is
having similar troubles, and the
admonition, "Pay your taxes/' is
very much abroad in the land. And
the very fact that this shortage of
school funds is so universal is what
is compelling the department to
issue the edict, Pay up or go without.
We seem to have gotten ai'onnd
to the point where the old adage
about the Lord helping those who
help themselves has become literally, if embarassingry, true in school
matters and those who have the
educational affairs of Creston at
heart should take serious heed and
govern themselves accordingly.

Credit Where Due
While we have no desire to enlarge the Winslow controversy at
all, there is one statement in Mr.
McMur_rie;s letter last week that
needs just a little explaining in
order that credit may be given
where, to our mind, it belongs.
Mr. McMurtrie says: ''During
"the late crisis in the Union Mr.
"Winslow entered very fully into
"the pofiition and difficulties it was
"in and was most helpful in ofl'er-
"ing export criticism and suggestions."
We do not wish to minimize in
the least the value of Mr.Winslow's

Mr. McMurtrie'.. letter in last
week's Review criticising an editorial in a previous issue wherein
we called Mr. Winslow, provincial
horticulturist, to book for Ins seeming inability to havo Creston a port
of call for the prairie business men
who were then working on an
inspection trip oP the Kootenay,
Boundary and Okanagan fruit districts,   makes  interesting  reading.
In this letter and The Review
editorial you get the two prevailing
views of how a public official should
be treated. Mr. McMurtrie advances the theory, in this case at
least, that because Mr. Winslow
had on occasions been a true friend
to tho ranching industry in tho
Valloy ho should bo exempt from
such publicity as Til 13 Review aaw
fit to givo him in onr issue of September 17th.
Boyond conceding that had wo
tho knack of stringing togothor
more graceful phrases that would
have conveyed tho samo moaning,
but possibly havo looked lens uhar-
aotor'iHtic, wo would gladly have
availed oursolf of them; boyond
this we cannot concur at all iu Mr,
MoMurtrio's view.

his theory sound,   up  to a  certain

&  ciipiomat   prevent   any   n_a.uu6,_
being brought  to  the attention of
the offending official somehow.
The curse of our public life today is that folks are afraid to say
or do anything, or to aid and abet
someone else to do something, for
fear it will hurt the party, or the
member, or some more or less powerful official won't like it. etc., etc.
This failure to speak out regardlsss
of consequences has brought about
the undoing of more than one public man and has brought into existence the saying "Heaven deliver us
from our friends.
Failing to hear any criticism of
his actions many humans gradually
get it into their heads that they are
a second edition of the king, as
it were, and can do no wrong���at
least nothing worth making a fuss
Your selected or elected representative or official should get the
same consideration as any other
employee. If he does well, commend him; if he fails to do well,
point out his error to him. Moat
likely he won't thank you at the
time, but he'll do it eventually. In
this detail we havo tho assurance
of several large ranchers that our
observations will do Mr. Winslow a
world of. good. Thoy can do no
harm if he's the worker Mr. Mo-
Murtrie pictures him.

Miss Bar-  stow got her training as a violinist  in this country and Europe and was  so successful that at one time she  played in concerts. Then, feeling that  she would like to make a violin, she  apprenticed herself to an old violin  maker who had made a success of  his work and learned all that he could  teach her of the crtift.  So far Miss Barstow has made nine  violins, all of which are said to be  unusually fine instruments and have  sold at high prices. In her seventh  viojin she struck a new trial by using  redwood. Though her friends advised  against her wasting her tim_ on such  an experiment, she secure a slab of  redwood, heart that had been seasoning Tor thirty years as a plank on her  grandfather's fence. The wood was ���������o  bsauti-iily grained and so perfectly  seasoned that she stuck to hor plan  and made a violin of it. The result  was so satisfactory that she has been  offered a much higher price for it  than for any other instrument of her  making.  Minai'd's  therla.

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure  indigestion because  they go right to the  root of the trouble.    Ihey make Jiew,  rich blood, which so strengthens the  system that the stomach does its own  work and digests the food in a natural  way.    Many a    terrible    sufferer  from indigestion has found a permanent cure    through a fair use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.   Among them is  Mrs. H. Carmern, Locke street north,  Hamilton,     Ont.,     who     says:     "Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills not only gave me  new health,  but new  life.    For    Ave  years 1 was a great sufferer, was almost constantly doctoring, and spent  a great deal of money with absolutely  no result.    My stomach "was iu such  a dreadful condition    that frequently  it  would   not  retain   nourishment   of  any kind.    When I ate 1 suffered terrible pains,    a fluttering of the heart  and   often   a   feeling .of   nausea.     In  addition to this I was in a very anaemic con:.ition, and felt as if I was lingering between life and  death.    One  day while sitting in the park a lady  got, into conver atlon with me, and I  told her my trouble.   She asked me if  I had tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  saying that they had been a great benefit to her daughter.    When    I went  home I decided to try this medicine.  I  soon found the'pills  were  helping  me.    and    continued taking them for  several months, when 1  was restored  to better health  than  I  had  enjoyed  for years,    and I have since been the  picture of lieaU.li.    i  iiope my experience  may  be  the  means  of pointing  to others tlio way to health."

Wanamaker was visiting in Kansas  City- a few years ago and was asked  by a newspaper reporter to tell the  secret of his success.  *'I always tried to do better than the  other fellow," he answered.  Wanamaker says that when he went  to Philadelphia to find his first clay's  work he was laughed at for his country clothes. He got a job in a store  and the other clerks made fun of him'  because he worked so hard. He did  things that he did not have to do. He  was always ready . to jump in and  help. He worked as hard for the success of that littla clothing store as if  he owned it himself. He was always  doing better than any other clerk in  the store, and the owner soon saw it.  It wasn't long until John was foreman  of the place and boss over the clerks  who had laughed at him.  ''It was good for me to be sneered  and scoffed at," says Wanamaker- "It  helped me to arrive at the destination  I had started for."  Of course Mr. Wanamaker was exaggerating to make his point. Not  every hoy has had a fair chance. But  every boy needs to ask himself the  questions suggested by Mr. Wanamaker. "Am I doing my job as well  as it can be done?'' Am 1 working for  the house all the time, thinking of the  best interests of the business, bringing intelligence to my work?" "Am T.  making good so" conspicuously that I  am making myself indispensable?"  Such questions as these must be answered in the affirmative before a  boy can feel that he is making the  most of his opportunities.���������Kansas  City Star.

It appeared in the recently-  published   manifesto   of . tho    social  democracy, hut was curbed by the obsession so assidiously kept up by the  imperial government that the- empire  .was forced into the war of the defense  of its very existence.    It is boldly as-  uerted by a committee of the German  Humanity League, which is more safely dated at Rotterdam. That the members  of that body are free from the  obsession  is  shown by the assertion  that they are "convinced" that thero  ha_  been, "no conspiracy by any government  or  any  nation  against Germany, and that on the contrary it is  only by the victory 01 the allied arm-,  ie-5. as g'C-.rdians oi humanity that we  ourselve..  shall be emancipated from  the  accursed yoke  of Prussian  militarism."  "Enlightened democrats in all countries/- it is declared, must assist in  breaking, that yoke 'before the German states canregain the pathway o_  peace." As evidence that those whose  sentiments are expressed in this new  manifesto can "look facts plainly in  the face," and see them as they are  eeen by all who are not obsessed, such  familiar "facts" are thus stated: "No  state coveted our land or menaced  German integrity. Our ships were free  to sail and welcomed on every ocean.  Our citizens enjoyed the fullest civil  rights in all parts of the world. Our  industrial output found a ready market in every quarter of the globe.  Commerce was increasing year by  year."  A year ago nobody would be found  even in Germany to^ dispute these  facts.

How far this feeling may exist cannot  now be judged because, according to  this same Geramn authority, "by fals<_  declaration the press is compelled to  deceive the Fatherland and our compatriots continue to be slaughtered in  the trenches. By golden gifts members of the Reichstag and publicists  have been seduced to betray the people's cause they have sworn to defend." No more _evere charges have  been  made against the ruling power  Jt_ur-  Ger-  . this  of the "great eential empire" of  ope than those uttered by these  man voices.    They cry out that  power    "has    shattered    our homes,  aarkened our lives, robbed us of our  bravest sons and set the whole civilized world against us."    They charge  it with having by foul corruption deceived  the  Turkish nation  and  compassed its ruin," and they declare that [  to  their last  hours  the  kaiser,  Von  Tirpitz^nd Bethman Hollweg will car-{  ry upon them .the brand of shame fori  the   unparalleled     ruin     they     have j _  wrought    and the misery into which ��������� ew,~-he_. he began to widen his know  they have plunged the     barbarism on land and  Citizen Constructs Neighbor-  Community  of  Kustonia,  Ohio  South Charlestown, O.���������A few miles  from this town lies Hustonia, the only  built to order community centre for  farmers in the United States.

The Farm Training  The Country in a Class by Itself for  the Development of Character  Farm trained boys have long been  valued by employers *;in every line or  industry and in the professions, because of their greater initiative and  abounding energy. A city contemporary admits the superiority of boys  from the farm, and laments the decline in initiative and energy in men  ol* the city's own breeding.

After all, the reply to the ultimatum has not even yet'arrived, and  the absence of a reply is equivalent  to   a   declaration   of  war.     Suddenly  one of the little company remembers  something that everybody has hitherto forgotten; tho difference of an hour  between the time of London and Berlin- - Midnight by mid-_uuropean time  will be 11 o'clock in London. Germany would naturally understand  this demand for a reply by midnight  to mean midnight in the country of  despatch, therefore at 11 o'clock  London time the time for the reply  will expire. *'  It is now approaching 11 o'clock.  As the clock ticks out the remaining.  minutes the tension becomes terrible,  talk slackens, there are long pauses.  The whole hurden of the frightful issues involved for Great Britain,  FraBce, Belgium, Russia, Germany,  for l_urop*e, for the world, for civilization, for religion itself, seems to be  gathered up ia these last few moments. If war comes now it will be  the most frightful tragedy the' world  ever has witnessed. Twenty millior.s  dead, perhaps, civil life c-rippied for  a hundred years Which is it to be���������  peace or war? It is terrible to think  of.  As they sit there the electric wires  may be flashing the awful tidings like  a flying angel, of life or death through  the dark air all. over Europe-  The four men are waiting for the  telephone to ring. It does not ring,  and the fingers of the clock' are moving. The world seems on tiptoe listening for the thunder stroke of fate.  The ministers at length sit silent and  rir-id, almost petrified, looking-fixedly  at the floor or ceiling.  Then through the awful stillness of  nie room and the park outside comes  the deep boom of Big Ben���������boom���������  boom���������boom! *        .

When tho clock struck again at  midnight Great Britian had been at  war for an hour without knowing it.  If I had done wrong in lifting the  curtain, on this private scene il ask  forgiveness for tbe sake o_ the purpose I put it to: not in anger, but  with an awful sense of responsibility  to Great- Britain and humanity that  our responsible ministers drew the  sword of our country.

Banker-Farmer Movement Solving the  Problems   of   Agricultural  Finance  The banker-farmer movement is one  of the very fcv'.t things which could be  done to help solve the    problems of  agricultural finance and credit.    The  bankers of the country are becoming  more vitally interested in the w?.iar3  of  the  farming  business     than  they  havo   ever   been  before.    They  havo  ,come to realize that their own pros"  perity, and the prosperity of all other  businesses of the country, are fundamentally dependent upon the prosperity of the terming business of the entire nation  Realizing this very important fact  they have set about, individually and  as an organization, to study seriously  and thoroughly the methodB and the  needs of tho .business- Already this  study has resulted in a thorough realization of the Importance of improved  methods of nfarkating, improved nnnh-  ods of loaning money whore needed,  and improved conditions of rural  crodit.

They arc  co-operatiug with every legitimate  movement which is designed to accomplish these things.  With- the stewards of the country's  moneys and credits aligned on tho  sido of the farmer, and co-operating  with those engaged in the farming  business for the express purposo of  furthering tho success of that business in every community where a live  bank is located and throughout the  country is general, it should be only  a comparatively few years until this  great business has advanced to stages  of development which havo never before been dreamed to bo possible.

Teach the hoys and girls who aro  growing up in your house to bo good,  active and influential citizens of the  community In which they live. Not  only teach them to ho, but also teach  them how to be, worthy of tho privileges which como to them as a result  of living in tho community or tho nation in which they happen to bo living.  Teach them by both precept and ox-  ample, hy word of mouth and hy tho  actions of your own daily lives.  Tho men and women engaged in tho  farming business are fast taking tho  same, place in tlio social and tho political life of the nation which thoy havo  always held In tho industrial llfo of  the world.
