L>* Clark of   Vancouver,   the  Dommiod fruit inspector for B.C. was  a Creston caller Monday and Tuesday.  To say that his visit/was  a pleasant  one would be just a, little v. !de cf  the  mark as it was his unfortunate duty  to have the Fruit Growers Ui-iOii,   per  A.   Lindley,     up   before   Magistrate  Lowenberg on Tuesday morning  on a  charge of   marketing over-graded   apples, on which  count Athey   were   adjudged guiiy and fined $10 and costs.  However it is some   satisfaction   to  know that the Union   was   guilty   of  only a rather minor infraction   of this  becoming-well-known     Fruit    Marks  Act, the   information- being   laid   on  the strength of inspection   of   car   of  apples at Regina some   weeks  ago in  which seyeral boxes of Wealthy- were  found that did not grade up to  No. 1  standard in the matter   of color;   instead of being   90 per cent, perfect   in  this detail the evidence went to   show  that they were at least 20   to   25.  per  cent below   the   regular   standard���������a  little too big a spread  to   be   entirely  ignored.

Postmaster Gibbs was appointed to  receive subscriptions from those whom  the collectors may not find at home  when on their rounds.  We --gain appeal to citizens to give  as.liberally as circumstances will permit, and do it cheerfully. The collectors are not soliciting for themselves, but on behalf of a cause which  at least entitles them to at least a  courteous reception when they "happen  along.  *%mmI_I mx,m.  Creston to nave  County Court Sit  Kitchener  Malcolm Josefson  left  last week  for Calgary and Edmonton, .Alta.  Mrs. and   Miss G. A. Hunt were  Creston visitors   for  the -week-end.  Word reached ' Creston the early  part of the week that the necessary  order-in-council was being put through  that would ensure Creston at. least  three sittings of the County Court  each year provided, of course, cases  are entered _.or triai.  Until the proclamation appears it is  impossible to state the exact months  the new court will sit, but-it is likeiy  the mouths of January, May and  September will be chosen and it seems  certain that -Judge Forin of Nelson  will preside.  The placing at the disposal of the  i people of the Valley the services of  | this higher court is a move that people  j generally will appreciate. Not that  I we are eager to rush into law on any  ! and every possible occasion, but in  that at the   minimum   expense   cases  G. A.

Travelers-on the  C.P.R. lake steamers.were treated to  roast turkey, the birds coming from  the Arrowsmith ranch, here.  The snowfall to date in the Valley is  approximately eighteen inches���������the  heaviest for November since 1904 according to some old timers. Up till  Wednesday, Nelson had received exactly 2 feet of it.  Teddy Haskins supplied six animals  for the car of cattle the P. Burns Co.  shipped to Nelson on Monday���������all  three-yea** olds.  We know-at least'three local ranchers who are not rejoicing over the  snowfall, owing to the fact that their  potatoes are not dug.  Geo. Hendron of .Creston brought in  a fine buck deer on Friday, after a few  hours hunting in the Arrow Creek  country. While hard put to ' retrain  the wounded   animal   from   plungingLspeetor holds a pretty good opinion of  being overlie apples were  otherwise splendid samples of No. l's  in every respect. {Discussing the  season's shipping from the Valley, Mr.  Clark said that the regulations as to  grade, especially, had been splendidly  lived up to during the whole year,  showing a marked improvement all  along the line as 'compared with 191_.  Incidentally this charige for the better  was not confined to Creston���������it was  general all through the province, and  could not fail tob%- Hi* he material interests of the ranchers generally.  As someone .is sure to want to know  why Mr.- Clark did not prosecute the  grt wers and packers of the fruit, as  well as, or rather than the selling  agency, we   migth   say  that   the   in-  rather heavy.

Owing to the deep snow automo-  ,  able Small Debts Court can be brought  to trial with the reasonable assurance  that whatever the judgment handed  out it wiii be accepted with somewhat  better grace than has been the custom  with some of the decisions in the old  standby Small Debts tribunal. With  sittings of the County Court here, too,  it will be possible to appeal what may  appear to be unsatisfactory decisions  of the lower court.  The jurisdiction of the County Court  is quite extensive. Outside of being  unable to try actions for any   inaliei-  into the Goat River, Mr. Hendron is re  ported to have   missed   a   chance   at  another group of seven.  Ed.

Thiftis not an unde-  si rved compliment most of us will admit, and it is reasonably certain the  Union, the ranchers and the packers  themselyes will see to it that Mr.  Clark will not find his confidence misplaced.

There are at present 'three of these  schools, located at Vermilion, Olds  and Claresholm. Farmers' boys aud  girls may attend the schools during  the winter months at a very nominal  cost, and are given practical instruction in many matters of great, value  to them-in their farm life. The boys  ui't. taught carp Gilt ov v.or__, -".Icic���������.  smithing, soil and seed selection, detection of noxious weeds and how to  erradicate them, the use and care of  farm implements, gasoline engines,  etc., and a general knowledge of livestock, dairying, andoall branches of  husbandry.

Great Britain's maritime    action    has  ��������� been   to   render   ineffective     the     at-  exhausted   the b^atsnot' tempted blockade which the Germans,  ' "'     defiance of tha laws of  Germans   Fought   Desperately   and   the   Viciousness  bf   Their  Resistance was Due to Their Rage Over the Loss of Their  Dugouts Which Cost Them so Much Labor  _. i  telephone has been developed by  which it is possible-to detect the approach of a submarine by sound from  observation boats or stations planted  off shore connected with points on the  mainland. ��������� ___  Huge nets have been stretched  across the channels through which the  submarines may be expected to pass  and in open waters, near steamship  lanes or  in  the  vicinity  of  warships,  nets suspended with floats have been  cast. Then patrols congregate and  when the submarine comes to the surface, as it evidently roust, it is destroyed by gun fire oi* captured.  A special type of mine also has bsen  devised whioh is laid in large fields  that have proved particularly dangerous to submarines approaching  st-amer lanes.  The  German methods  of  '���������'--brnarines   with   oil   from  places along the coasts has been dis  posed of-    This compels the boats to  return to their bases at more frequent  intervals.  Aeroplanes arc exceedingly ;.t_eful  in locating submarines. They" can detect one even 100 feet beneath ths surface. It is a habit of the German submarines to slip into favorable position  along the steamer lanes and lie on the  bottom for long periods, rising occasionally for observation. As the. batteries are not  being in motion, only a brief stay on  the surface is necessary to renew the  air supply and take a hurried observation. Undersea boats adopting these  tactics have been the most difficult  to watch. Here, the aeroplanes have  shown their great, usefulness as the  comparatively shallow water along  much of the British coast makes it  possible for the aeroplane operators  to see the ships lying on the bottom.  The aeroplane notes the position and.  notifies the nearest destroyer or patrol boat, which speeds to the spot and  waits for.the submarine to ris...

The Germans surviving the  explosion usually gave in, though not  always, for some of them died to the  New  Air Weapon  Roar of Frencli  Guns  Germans Are Perfecting a New Aerial  Engine  The aerial tropedo invented by a  Swedish officer and sold to Kriipps  may have been the basis of Germany's  uew air weapon, but certainly it is not  the finished article. The Swedish invention resembles a huge shell fitted  with a turbine engine driven by gas  pressure; the German air torpedo is  more like an airship fitted with propellers driven by electricity and controlled-from a Zeppelin by wireless.  The German aerial torpedo can, theoretically, remain in the air for three  hours, and can be controlled from  distance of two miles. Both weapons  are discharged from a tube like a mar-;  ine torpedo, but in the case ot the,  Gorman invention two propellers and  two lifting screws are automatically  started at the moment of discharge.  In shape, this torpedo of the air,  which is '.bctit. seven feet long, resembles the submarine weapon. Jt is  composed of two cases, the outer of  thin chrome nickel and the inner ot,  material similar to that used in Zep-  pelins- About one-sixth of the space  at tiie rear is occupied by an electric  accumulator  at   the   bottom,   and   -ti  cleCti'IC    iiiOlur   g���������Uei*ulO_'    Secured    Lu  the top. The machinery is controlled  by Hertzian waves acting on the  Telefunken system of wireless, and it  is claimed that up to a distance of  two miles the air torpedo can be  steered at will.  The air torpedo is inflated with  water gas and compressed gas, but  as it is ha.wiev than the air, two  lifting screws work under the body  to keep the torpedo in the air, while  the motive power is supplied by pre  pollers. Both screws and propellers  aro connected with the same shaft,  which runs through, the body of th<_  torpedo.  When the air torpedo, after flying  through the air, hovers immediately  over the selected target, it is made to  aasumo a vortical position, the lifting-  horizontal screws and propellers arc  .stopped, and the torpedo .lives to tho  -.-round, carrying a large quantity of  high explosive charge ut If a nose. The  charge explode*, on contact UUo an ordinary {.hell, and it. is -tiid lhat in two  torpedoes there Is sufficient explosive  force to destroy the Tower of London.  Originally, those air torpedoes wore  destined to ho carried exclusively by  XopFiollns, but owing to eortiiin improvements it ban now been found  they can bo manipulated from warship-..

Finding the towns and  villages evacuated by the Russians  bare of provisions and the distances  between the towns becoming greater  the farther they penetrated into the  country, and incessantly harassed by j  the Russians troops, some of the in- |  vaders are declared to display a ferocious and revengeful temper.  The atrocities laid at their door are  said by the Russian people to be as  bad as those committed in Belgium  just after the opening of the war.

One   old   woman,  j who cooked for the Germans, is now  1 cooking for the British.  As the skirmish line approached  the town jt saw six-, women and a  child coming toward it in the midst of  the battle. Some of the British soldiers turned away to rescue them, but  before they could get the women un-  ������__.* some sort of shelter two of them  were wounded-  The elaborateness and  permanency  of the German trenches indicated the  apparent    Conviction  of the Germans  I in the security of their lines. Dugouts  ! of  thirty  feet  depth,   were  cemented  'aud contained electric lights and arm  chairs.    Some  of them were  impenetrable even to high explosive shells of  big calibre. The British bombardment  cut the wire in  front of the German  trenches to bits and battered the firing trenches and traverses into irregular   piles   of   earth.     Under   such   a  flailing    of shells it was suicidal for  the     Germans   to  attempt  to  remain  outside the dugouts or to try to man  j their machine guns or use their rifles.  "When  the  artillery   work  was  perfected      the   British   infantry   sprang  j over the parapets at a given moment.  ; Sprinting toward  the  German  trench  i they arrived    almost   without  opposi-  i tion,    Then the German trench    was  I theirs, with  the  Germans who    were  j alive huddled in their caves. Some of  j the dugouts   had been demolished and  i had   in   them   fragments     of  German  i bodies mixed with the debris. Others  1 had  their openings blown in by shell  j explosions,  and   their occupants were  either  buried  or  suffocated.   When  a  j dugout had been  unharmed, the Brit-  1 ish   soldiers,   with   bayonets   fixed   or  bombs in hands, appeared at the entrance to find the Germans still inside  or perhaps just starting out.  All in the dugouts might surrender,  Some incidents had a humorous as  well as a tragic side, lu these sudden  encounters at close quarters, where  the charging Briton met a German  emerging from his dugout, the bayonet, bombs and even fists were sometimes brought into play in the ensuing  melee.  One difficulty was the gathering  and guarding of. prisoners in such a  confined space as their regular wrecked trenches. With rifles and bombs  lying about, the Germans, even after  capitulating, were likely to seize them  and rush to the cover of a traverse  trench or into a shell enfter and re-,  new the fight.  Tho Germuns fought desperately  and the viciousness of their counterattacks apparently was due to rage-  over the loss of their comfortable dugouts, which had cost them so much  painstaking labor and the unpleasant  prospect of a winter in the mud building caves.  The rear of the army during tho  action presented a wondrous varied  scene, which was the more concentrated because of the narrow front of  the operations- There were the slightly wounded walking back, the steady-  tramp of fresh regiments going forward, processions of swift, smooth  running motor ambulances. whoso  burdens would be back in England in  __. hours, longer and seemingly endless processions of powerful motor  trucks loaded with shells to feed the  hungry, ever-thundering unseen guns,  troops of the reserves in the field or  beside the gorged roads, waiting their  call, while the French population  stood   in   their   doorways   and   asked  _',-_���������_-       . 1% r\      loinr..        ���������������..-,���������*������������������-'"������  '  VV-   - ���������..--..        HVLIjOI        iit-  U   -.  At a place near the front, a park of  captured guns guarded by a pacing  British sentry seemed an attraction  more symbolic of success to inhabitants than to the parties of German  prisoners. The distances of the last  ranges at which they .were fired before the British infantry engulfed  them are chalked on some of the gun-  shields. Perhaps the most interesting  trophy is a Russian machine gun  taken by the Germans from the Russians- on the eastern front and now  re-taken by the British.  The German prisoners were well  clothed, neat and fresh in their comfortable dugouts, where they were  caught by surprise, but evidently they  appreciated the generosity of the British rations. Three thousand prisoners  wero taken by the British, which was  a small percentage of the German  loss.

It provides, at   the  minimum cost, a tribunal to handle  cases which may appear   too complicated for the Small Debts Court,  hut which  hitherto   have   had    income before that body   on   account  of the expense of  having   trial   at  Nelson; also, it makes   possible,   at i  moderate cost, appeals  from   judgment of the   Small    Debts    Court  judges, which,  too,    have   hitherto  been out   of the question, owing to  excessive   cost    of    a    hearing    at  Nelson.  The jurisdiction of   th_  government wuuld keep it running  somehow. Even a very slight  amount of this sort of,, disaffection  toward a creamery operating in a  community where the loyal support  of every cow-owner is necessary to  successfully operate the plant would  spell disaster in a short time.  The Review believes a private- j  ly-owned, or small stock company  concern in which a reliable butter  maker is to some extent financially  interested, would fill the need here  most satisfactorily. Operating expenses would be kept down, a high-  grade finished prod uot assured, and  operation made possible on a somewhat smaller number of cows than  a government-assisted creamery is  required to have.  The cow-supply will readily adjust itself. If more animals are  needed t.o ensure the success of the  creamery, the creamery in its turn  will insure a profitable market for  tho produce of the additional live \  stock.  With the otter of a free site    and  lumber wherewith to construct  the'  creamery the Uiiancing of the  concern is simplified considerably,   and  we believe that the   proposition    is  Uufftcientlv attractive to enlist   the  ! services of   a    competent    man    to  \ take charge of the creamery    on   a  ���������_._.

D  "1Q-K VS.   TV-        MINERAL AOT  FORM F  Certificate of Improvements  To facilitate the selling of the 1916  fruit and vegetable crop of the Kootenay and Boundary country, A. Lindley, sales manager of the Creston  Fruit Growers' Union, makes the following observations, in a letter to the  press this week:  Having had several years experience  in the prairie cities selling fruits and  .vegetables in carload I lots have come  to the conclusion that it would be folly  on the part of the growers of B.C. to  endeavor to start up a few wholesale  houses; because  the   houses   already  established  are    so thoroughly    entrenched that they can  work serious  hardships on any organization in B.C  going   into   the  wholesale    business.  Having come to the above conclusion  it becomes necessary to think out a  solution that would   not   create   any  hostility     between     the    established  houses and  ourselves.    I  suggest the  following solution:   That each and all  of the fruit   growing   centres   in   the  Kootenay     and    Boundary  districts  form   themselves     into   local   organizations each having local autonomy.  That is each local having its own local  officers and offices;  selecting its  own  manager and   secretary;   keeping   its  own books, collecting all   moneys for  fruit and produce sold and   seeing   to  the proper distribution of same among  its own  members   after   commissions  have been taken from such sales.  However, all locals should be centralized in selling with the head selling  offices at (preferrably) Calgary. The  reason for this is: 1. The production of  fruits,  etc.,-from   the Kootenay and  Rr-iiii-i-T-ir      _���������_ iQtlii5-'-,_- _-kt_i__       I*-.*-.**fit*.*._-      C/A  large that personal representation for  the growers on the prairies is now  absolutely essential. 2. Without  doubt Calgary is the hub for all Alberts and Western Saskatchewan.  The centralized selling house should  be controlled by a district committee,  Silver ton has   promised   $14,000  the Patriotic Fund this year.

To finance this scheme it would be  necessary to reserve five per cent, for  the office at Calgary, which with a  consolidation of all growers into locals  in the two districts, would more than  meet all expenses for this selling office.  It would be necessary to have the  selling office opened about May the  first. Therefore as the sale of fruit in  any quanities does not commence until _vfl fruits are ready for market  which is the month of June and collections for soft fruits are not extensive  until about July 20th, it would be  necessary to raise sufficient funds to  carry on the selling office for May,  June and July. This sum could be  considered a loan to the selling house  and made payable back to the parties  interested at the end of tho season from  the total commissions earned.  The stuff necessary atCalgarv would  bo sales mannger, and bookkeeper  stenographer both of whom should be  on salary.  This is a broad statement of a  scheme, the details of which should be  worked out by parties appointed from  a convention that should be held in  Nelson sometime in the month of  December. Tho reason for holding  Htieh eonv'M.tion in the month of  December is that it would enable  the growers thoroughly int.oros.od in  the above idea to selectmen to go to  Victoria in tho month of January to  attend the B.C. growers' convention  who will be able to use influence with  thoHo at the bond of that prgani'/ntion  to assist the growers in the Kootenay  and Boundary districts iu working out  thin scheme.  w ��������� o. .lciiibret?

Sanford  Evans, tor the rates on wheat existing-  between Great Britain/and the other  countries competing with Canada. The  purpose is to ascertain whether Canada is being discriminated against in  the  rates.    Only  in   such   a   contingency,  it is  said,  does  the  consider that  it  can   have  lating powers.  It is stated that the rates from Aus- |T_3r  tralia and the United States are practically the same as from Canada, that  the rate from India is slightly lower  on account of the smaller demand for  transports at present, but that the  rate from Ai'gentine is considerably  higher than from Canada.  The -committee- holds that,, unless  the rates are discriminating against  Canada, it is difficult to say whether  the increase is borne by the producer  here pr by the. consumer in England-  -���������-As to securing sufficient tonnage at  reasonable rates, it is claimed that  Britain can not be expected to commandeer ships for wheat from Canada.  It is contended Britain is not purchasing the wheat, crop as a whole, and  is ready to secure her wheat supply,  wherever she can do so more cheaply,  with preference, other things being  equal, for the dominions. It is contended that if Great Britain  mandeered ships for Canada  would have to do the same for  tralia  and the other  Nothing has ever  qtsaled or compared  vitk the medicinal fats  i Sooti^s tmXsnsgisSoBi to  est the decline, invigorate  e   blood, strengthen  the  ;r vous system, aid the appe-  te and restore the courage I  of better health.

But the sufferer need not j  _*rr.'n. .fiis.O-i.raged. for there is a curs j  Tn Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These'  pills make new, rich, red blood, which  soothes and strengthens the feeble  nerves, and thus frees them from  pain and restores the sufferer to  cheerful activity.. In proof we give  the statement ol* Mr. Thos- D. Lein-  star, Wapella, Sask.. who says. "T  was attacked with sciatica which  gradually grew worse until I was confined io my bed; foi' three months I  had to be shifted and turned in my  bed as I was utterly unable to help  myself. I suffered the greatest torture from tho fierce, stabbing pains  that accompanied every movement. I  consulted several doctors and took  drugs and medicines until I was nauseated, but without getting any benefit, and I began to believe 1 would  be a continuous sufferer. Finally I  was prevailed upon to use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and after taking them  for about six weeks I was able to get  out of bed. From that on I kept steadily improving and until I was free  from this terrible and painful malady."  The most stubborn cases of sciatica  will yield to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  if the treatment is persisted in- These  pills are sold by all medicine dealers  or will bo sent by mail at ,r������0 cpnts a  box or six boxes "for $2.,_0 by addressing The Dr. Williams' Medicin.

Few appreciate its real magnitude, and its influence on our present  life and society, in New York alone  statistics show more than 40,000 employed in the industry. In the country'  at large these figures would easily  reach 100,000, or one-thousandth of  our entire population. Eighteen thousand theatres are devoted to showing  the picturization of the scenarios in  the silent drama, and more than 15,-  000,000 persons daily attend a movie  performance. One million dollars a  day is said to pass into the box offices and 150,000 operate the machines for producing the films on the  scenes. ��������� ;.;  Our last infant industry seems  never to have worn swaddling clothes.  It sprang into manhood at a bound,  and its growth is tremendous *da.ily.  The success of the movies comes  from the fact that the action is swift,  tense, moving. It depicts all classes  and conditions, not through the eye  of the dramatist, but through the  truthful, never lying eye of the camera. The people realize that this is  life in its stern realities, and conditions as they really exist. Add to  this the stimulating fact that right  is always triumphant, that evil is always given the wages of sin, that  truth is mighty and always prevails,  and one sees why the moving pictures  are a splendid influence and profitable  investment,���������Philadelphia Press.

There  have been many cases of inheritance j  where no such free hand was given. I  and    they have not been included in  this schedule.

Mrs. Sage w*as also given'the custody of her"miIlions without a string.  The-will gave lier "without let or  hindrance" the millions that had been  locked up in Wall street. It did not  .require any act of law or any gracious  act of man to make Mrs. Hetty Green  the mistress of her destiny. She. inherited $1,000,000 from her father,  the late Edward Robinson, and an  aunt added $4,000,000 later. But  Mrs. Green made the bulk of her estate herself. She took lier nest egg  and Avent into the marts of money.  There she became a daily worker and  no man ever kept with more care nor  added Avith. more zeal than she to her  estate and increased it.  Mrs. Helen Gould Shcpard has done  something of the same kind on a  different scale. She had about $10,t  000,000 to start, and she invested her  money with judgment, jjnd kept the  increase. She did not come personally  in contact Avith the'men who made  money their stock in trade, but she  directed many a big deal that was  made possible by both her judgment  and money. Part of the Vanderbilt,  millions came to Mrs. Harry Payne  Whitney, who holds in art an outlet  for her activities. She found her estate quite sufficient without requiring  any increase, and proceeded to devote  her energy to sculpture. In her little  workroom she may often he found  making some new figure.
