Sullivan of Victoria, the provincial inspector of high schools, paid  the Creston superior school an official  visit on Monday.  In an informal discussion of high  school affairs with Trustee Jackson  the inspector came out very strong in  favor of the trustees setting themselves to the task of establishing an  out and out high school in Creston.  At the present time Principal Master-  ton is handling some sixteen pupils in  first and second year high school  work, and is also looking after a class  of almost a dozen pupils on entrance  work���������and there will be at least one  more scho'ar for the high school after  vacation.  Mr. Sullivan points out that it is a  physical impossibility for any teacher  to do the scholars, the school or himself justice under these conditions,  and all the eyidence is to effect that  for the next few years at any rate the  rttxxxti  ff-,%. 4-V������__i   o__.*-rt _���������> --v 1.*_~.V.   c-l-..'*!    ---'O  _.*������-.������-.v������  ak^a   _>__-t_    ������ii.^uiaiic -.tigll  SCuilisx     will  grow more acute rather than ease off.  The inspector was not unmindful  of  the fact that times   are stringent and  retrenchment    even    in    educational  matters a vital necessity.    These   distressing circumstances to the contrary  notwithstanding,    Mr.   Sulliyan   still  maintained that   Creston   could   and  should, in justice to   even   hard-times  educational progress, get busy making  provision for the district high   school,  either by adding a wing to the present  school or putting   up   a   commodious  new building and,   securing a  university graduate to take charge.  He believed the rural school truste* s  in the Valley would be willing to  faeililate matters financially at least,  to- tiie extent of paying pro rata for  every scholar their district had attending the higher seat of learning. He  also felt sure that ratepayers generally would be broad enough to stand  for any extra taxation that' might be  necessary in view of the advantage  the establishment, of the school would  give the Valley in the eyes of prospective new residents. Certainly  Creston with a high school would  appeal to the newcomer with a family  in comparison With points boasting  only public school facilities���������and the  more people in the Valley the lesser  grows the. tax rate and at the same  time help just a little to enhan ce property values.  Undoubtedly the  matter Will evoke  favorable and also   adverse  criticism.  At.  the   last   annual   school   meeting  there was some feeling that the school  staff should be   reduced   rather   than  augumufed, but in   view   of   the   attendance records, particularly in   the  high school, along with the statements  of both Inspectors Dove and Sullivan,  it really begins to look as if   we   may  be sacrificing   efficiency   in   our  educational life in   order   to   head  off   a  really not serious increase per head  in  our tax  bill���������to   say nothing   of  the  indirect, advantages we may   be   passing up on   tho   score   of   the   Valloy  looking unattractive to   possible   new  comers due to a shortage of all   round  school  facilities   that   our population  and location   in   tho   province   really  warrant.

His  differences with his tenants and with  the   Land   League   became   so   severe  lhat   the   nc-ijhborb.ood   declined    to  have any dealings with him-    The result  was something more than  being-  sent, to  Coventry by the  countryside,  it included a. refusal to have any commercial   dealing::   whatever   with   the.  j victim.

It Has a Very Considerable Loosening  Action on the Ground  The place for sweet clover is on tha  poorer   lands.     It   also   will   grow   ou  nind   that has  some "alkali   in   it.    In  some cases it will kill out salt grass���������  and that's an acid test.    It will grow  under     favorable,     conditions     where  other    leguminous    crops fail.    Sweet  clover  adds   considerable   nitrogen   to  ' the   soil,   for   the   nitrogen-fixing   bac-  j teria  are  active,    it has a very  considerable   loosening     action     on     the  1 ground-     And   it   is   imoprtant   to   ra-  ', member   also   that   the   bacteria   that  : grow  on  the  roots     of  this   crop  arc  : the same as those found on the roots  : of alfalfa,    so it. is an  excellent crop  ! to  grow  before  alfalfa.    The  bactjria  on the roots of red clover are uot the  same as  the  alfalfa   bacteria.  Sweet clover    is not and never will;  be   equal   to  alfalfa   or   red   clover  iu  feed production,    where    these    crops  do well.    This    fact    should n-?ver be  forgotten.     Of   course,  with   the   present high     prices    of seed,    tliere  is  good profit, in producing It,  but some  day^this demand will be supplied, and  then  the  price of seed   will  be  much  lower.     Feed   production  is  the  basis  on  which this crop  must be judged  -  when  considered as a permanent proposition���������and   if.  is   not   lite   equal   of  alfalfa  or red  clover  in     this  re-pect  when the conditions nre favorable for  these crops-  There is  no  disposition  to  discourage th.}  intelligent  growing of sweet  clover.     Not,   at.   all/    The     crop   has  its place, ���������which is on the poorer soils  and   locations.     But.     there   has   been  much   misleading  information     about  this    wonderful    weed,    which    some  persons would hava you believe is to  be the most, important Kansas leguminous  crop.    It is time  tlig  crop  was  judged on the basis of its real worth.  It has its plucclmt. this place is not  where  alfalfa  or i'ed   clover    succe?d  well.

Gutting off Germany From the Outside World
After having spent eight months
in England, and taking advantage of
��very opportunity to study the operations of the British navy, Mr. J. Herbert Duckworth is able to produce in
the New York Sun one of the most interesting articles that has appeared
on this subject. He says: "Fenced in
with barbed wire, her coasts deeply
furrowed wtili trenches, protected seaward by fields of deadly mines and
watched by ever active patrols of destroyers and seaplanes���the eyes of
the battleships that lurk in their bases
ready to pounce out upon he enemy���
England's geographical position is
something lo be envied hy the other
warring nations. She is protected by
something far more efficacious than
the most cunningly devised trenches i
���the great natural moat of the j
North Sea. !
"And art supports nature- The
Britsh Isles are sheathed in metal. !
The island kingdom is buried under !
a, shield of almost impregnable armor. London, the heart of the empire, is embedded in a 'Ring of Steel."
Heavy guns from her forts from Aberdeen in the north to Harwich in the
uouth frown toward Germany; more
guns at Dover, Folkestone, the Jsle of
Wight, Portsmouth, Portland, Plymouth and Falmouth guard the English Channel; fortress artillery at
Point Carnsore in Ireland and Holyhead in Wales stand guard at the
���southern entrance to the Irish Sea,
while other heavy pieces at Bally-
east lo in Ireland and Wigtown in
Scotland perform a similar service at
the northern doorway. Marconi stations are dotted in prodigal profusion around the two islands; behind
impassable rows of barbed wire at
every conceivably possible landing
place of an invader, troops are stationed ready to be whisked to the point

lonely parts of the west coast of Ireland and of the Highlands of Scotland for secret German submarine

"Naturally, when I first* reached
England I wanted to know what had
become of the navy that Premier Asquith has said costs $2,500,000 a day
to keep ailoat. I was told that it was
lost somewhere iu the grey _ mists
of the North Sea, and that it was
not strung out in a large semi-circle
in front of Heligoland waiting to be
sent to the bottom by undersea boats.
By piercing together such trifles as
admiralty warnings and
to idiots posted at naval bases, hy
\vaf"ching fractions of the lleet at
such places as Dover, Sheerness,
Portsmouth and Harwich���in short,
by keeping one's eyes open it was
possible to build up a shadowy outline of tiie general schci.it- that costs,
incidentally, $10,000,000 a day, by
which England has succeeded in com
pleting her isolation, warding off invasion and cutting off Germany from
the outside world.

present England has
work turning out aeroplanes. In addition America constructors are working day and night
rigging machines for Great Britain.
Up to June 30 the United States
had shipped 250 aeroplanes, valued at
$2,000,000, to England. There are now
standing orders for sixty machines a
week until the end of the war.
P^xcept for her submarines, the
German fleet is effectively bottled. It
is    believed
sible for any enemy vessel to run th
gauntlet through the Straits of Dover
owing to the immense mine fields
that choke that 18 mile wide channel
and the 15 inch guns that dominate
the situation from Dover to Calais.
Not even a submarine can pass down
the English Channel, thanks to tha
maze of submarine nets and traps
that have been set. Tb get out,..submarines must make the circuitous
j journey by" way of the neutral "three
.mile limit." off Norway. There are
one or two tortuous channels left
open among the deadly mines for
friendly and neutral merchantmen
that can only he traversed with the
aid of an authorized pilot. These ition,
passageways are guarded by 40 knot I charg
''T-B.'s'' (torpedo boat destroyers)
and seaplanes. The British government has notified Washington of the
location of several other mine fields
in the North Sea.
The northern way out into the
world for the German fleet, is almost
as effectively guarded as that to the
south. Ail the channels between John j to
o' Groats, the northerniost point! over
of Scotland, and the Orkney and
Shetland Islands have been set with
mines and submarine traps, or blocked "with captured German ships that
have been filled with roeks and stones
and sunk in the fairways. Between
tha Shetlands and the Norwegian
"three mile limit" are other mine
fields.    Somewhere    in    the neighbor-
j knows, of course, that many hundreds
j of Saskatchewan children are growing
I up with no education at all- For ex-
! ample there are some 1,100 Commun-
j ity Doukhobors in northeastern Sas-
Ikatchewan, none of whom send their
I children to school. Hundreds of other
| children of non-English-speaking par-
i entage, though receiving a nominal
j schooling, generally ��� in parochial
[ schools, are receiving either no in-
' struction at all in English or else so
! hood     of   Kirkwall
This  state  of affairs   characterizes
numerous districts where, despite the
law of the land, no public schools are
being maintained. For example, in the
neighborhood of Warman and Hague,
Dr.   Oliver   found   seventeen   villages
and  communities  without any  public
schools.    The many hundred Mennon-
ite children of these localities are dependant for their education on parochial schools not at present subject  to
any government supervision whatever-.
In the schools of 800 of these young
citizens of Saskatchewan, no word of
English is ever taught -or spoken. Dr.
Oliver is authority for the statement,
based upon his own personal observa-
that   not   a   single     teacher   in
e of any of these children knows
I English himself well enough to be able
j to teach it to anybody else.

| Dk,   Oliver  found  many  German  dis-
: tricts   in   which   independent   private
��� schools,   conducted  at  least  half the
; day in German, are being _-_aiiitai__ed
j instead of public schools, with a view
avoiding all  government   control
the subject-matter and method of
the education extended to the children.
In at least  some of our  French  settlements also Dr. Oliver found that insufficient attention is being devoted to
familiarizing   the   children   with   the
English language.
Dr. Oliver has also made a special
study of a rural municipality  iu the
northeastern part of the province, settled almost exclusively jby Doukhobor.i

No feature of the European war has

The Berlin Kreuz-Zeitung is greatly

of the British fleet:
"The British fleet has hitherto contented itsalf with playing the none too

3t has been a matter of common
knowledge for some time that the new-
German war loan has proved more or
less of a failure, and tbe Cologne Ga-
ette now reveals the fact that it is
more rather than less:
"There  are   still  large?  numbers   of
people who have not subscribed to the
war  loan.    There must, undoubtedly,
remain many of our 75,000,000 who can
afford to lend ?25 to $30 to the coun-
i try, but so far only 2,65)0,000 persons

the empire and in its power to redeem
its pledges?
"As things stand at present the general supply of the war loan is certainly not of a character to justify us in
holding up our heads very proudly before the world."

still keeps up the farce, of pretending
that it has been a transcendent success.

AS OTHERS SPEAK OF US  A True Blue Booster  R. E. Beattie, of the Beattie-Mur-  phy Co., has been spending the past  week at Creston looking after the  branch store there. Mr. Beattie reports business in the fruit center as  being good. He says Creston is on  the map in big red letters, and judging  from the "pull together" spirit of her  citizens is destined to remain there.  The crop this year was the biggest  ever. That is not the most noteworthy thing about Creston, however;  the good feeling of her citizens, the  optimistic spirit of every businessman  being particularly noticeable. The  feeling everyone is expressing regarding the future of the town and  district is another outstanding feature.  Creston has more real live wires than  any town its size in British Columbia,  and is bound to succeed. It is this  feeling of optimism which builds  towns and empires.-Cranbrook Herald  And the good feature to the Beattie  boosting is that R. E. backs it up in  tangible fashion. Just last week he  took delivery of a ton or more of  spuds wherewith to seed tho potato area on his farm at Wycliffe, while  on Monday Jas. Compton forwarded  him, at his farm a young purebred  Ilolstoin bull. In these piping times  its the citizen who not only boosts  Kootenay but also spends his money  for Kootenay products that is the true  patriot, and of such calibre is our  friend Beattie.

The -work of the Zemstvo and municipal unions must be encouraged in  every way. The recent congresses in  Moscow did excellently when they  swerved from their functions when  they raised questions of general polities. They must ��������� not be punished,  however, for this slight, error. The  help of the unions is especially necessary in the campaign against the abnormal rise in prices, which is due lo  speculation and disorganization.

Turnips  and potatoes both keen best in a  place just above freezing. While  pumpkin and squash need a. warm,  dry place, a temperature of fifty or  more is good for these vegetables. It  is better that, tliey should not touch  each other. Th" shells of pumpkins  and squash continue (o harden, and  the harder they arc the better they  keep. The softer r-helleo. squashes  and pumpkins should be used first, as  tliey will soon spoil if kept.
