The meeting also sanctioned the purchase of a power sprayer to be bought and delivered here  early in March. The sprayer is to be  put in charge of a competent man  whose duty will be to keep it in good  order and to be responsible for the  spraying of the district.  caller  The "business as usual" banner was  out, at board of trade headquarters on  Tuesday night when the regular  December meeting was held, President Reid in charge.

It was generally conceded j month,  while some move of the sort   was   de  sirable the proposed levy was too high,  something in the nature of the old  poll tax being more equitable. In the  end, hoW'ever, the letter was given a  six months hoist.  Through correspondence with the  hoard the Dominion department of  telegraphs had been dissuaded from  putting a Cranbrook man on as foreman (in construction of the Sirdar-  Crestou telephone line, Guy Lowenberg being finally chosen for the work.  The King Lumber Co. at Cranbrook  had also communicated with the  board for prices on six cars of baled  hay. A price of $1(5 a ton f.o.b. Creston had been submitted but was too  high for the firm. The loss of this  business was not deplored as the  people who submitted the price are  loose hay at $15.  C. O. Rodgers very briefly placed he-  fore the board the facts in the Creston  Valley creamery project. At present there were too few cows in the  country to operate a butter factory on  a scale sufficiently large to secure a  loan under- the Agricultural Crtdits  Act, but there were almost enough to  make a start with a sniad stock company or privately-owned creamery.  .Many people we're convinced the industry was just what the Valley needed and were the funds to be had there  would be many who would invest in  dairy cattle thusassuring the factory  an ample cream supply. Messrs. Henderson and Hayes were appointed a  committee to interview the bank re  securing their co-operation hy advancing ranchers money for cattle purchasing proposes, the animals so purchased  being held as security. They will also  investigate in othei directions with  tbe same object in view.

The deer   popula-   son last week  tion was decreased   by   seven,   which ���������  fell to Duck Creek hunters.  The result of the canvass for . the  Pati'iotic Fund proved a greater success than was anticipated. The ladies  responsible for this work had no  difficulty in obtaining the neccessary  in the way of cash donations and  promises of ��������� monthly subscriptions.  The results will be shortly anuounced  by the local treasurer.  Mrs. Loasby and Mrs. Dennes were  Creston visitors last Saturday attending to Patriotic Fund business*.  Mrs. Geo. Brown of Kootenay  Landing and Mrs. Dennes were there  Thursday last and attended the Presbyterian Bazaar.  Mrs. Loasby returned to Cranbrook  on Sunday where she joined Mr.  Loasby who has been in the doctor's  hands for the past week.  Mrs. H. Brownrigge   visited   Erick-  kwaay&n uny  Penticton has discovered there are  not enough cows in that district to  warrant the starting of #*. creamery.

There are rumors of   wedding   bells  mingling with the Christmas hells.  The people entrusted with the work  of collecting for the   Patriotic   Fund  are busy this  week,   and at   time   of  writing have met with splendid success.  H.

John Hobden is dragging logs with  his bay team for the Canyon City  Lumber Co.  With several families from Creston  living at the mill the school attendance  has incieased at least half a dozen.  /-*  Andy Miller, scaler at the mill, is  off for a few days, laid up with some  fractured ribs, the outcome of some  strenuous work in catchinghis driving  horse.  The recent rains put a stop to logging operations for a few days, but  this week saw things busy as usual  again.  H. White is the ouly Canyon Pity  man to get his full allowance of deer,  with George Leach a close second.  The annual meeting of Canyon City  Conservative Association will be held  in the local hall on Saturday evening.  Election of officers is the principal  business.  To be sure your presents or other  mail matter will i-each eastera friends  by Christmas Day it should be posted  not later than Monday morning.  ^oncer  Standard Pack Tomatoes  By ROY STAPLES   ====- =~=__=-.-r:  Butter Factory  Progress Reports  There was another meeting of those  interested iu the establishment of a  creamery in the Creston Vailey on  Saturday night in Mercantile Hall, at  which W. V. Jackson again presided.  The gathering was for the purpose!  of hearing from the gentlemen who  had been canvassing the different sections to discover what cows were  available, but as a couple* of these districts had not been heard from no  decisive action was taken.  The, points heard from accounted for  almost 225 dairy animals, just how-  many of these could be relied on for  creamery supply was not ascertainable  as the owners did not care to commit  themselves to that extent till they  had more information concerning the  proposed butter-making industry.  The canvassers all reported meeting  with considerable encouragement as  to the desirability, of having the  creamery and were assured by many  that were the factory established they  would invest in dairy cattle as fast as  available finance would permit.  El As Cranbrook also finds itself in exactly the same position as Creston in  the matter of starting a creamery  tiiose interested in that city will he  communicated with, looking to Unbuilding- of a union ei-earnery  in the Valley, where general conditions  and a larger supply of cows favor the  factory's establishment.  The meeting adjourned till   a   later-  date to be decided by the chairman..  We regret to announce that owing  lo the indisposition of the principal  the school patriotic, concert and dance  previously announced for December 20  has been postponed until a later date,  of whioh due notice will be given.  Mrs. J. J. Grady left on Saturday on  a visit to hor daughter at Spokane.  iM, Wigen was a Creston callor on  Monday.  10. C. Southwell returned from Spokane on Monday, having worked all  siinuner at that, point.  11. is not many people who are fortunate enough to get thoir venison as  easily as .1. B. Winlmv obtained a 125-  pound white tail on Saturday last.  The door hnd b.ieomo hopelessly entangled in the C.P.H. fence and it wiih  . impossible for it to escape.  The dance on Saturday night was  not up to the usual standard obtaining  here���������the crowd being chiefly ennspie-  uou������. hy itv< absence.  The packing of tomatoes at a central  p&iSking slie-d has been tried out in the  E*'ickson district during the past season. As this method of handling  tomatoes has been found satisfactory  in other parts of the province it would  be in the interests of the district that  a true report of the Erickson experiment be made public. Moreover, in  justice to those who took tomatoes to  the central packing shed such publicity is made all the more necessary he-  cause a vigorous effort has been made  to lead the district to believe that the  Standard Pack of tomatoes as handled  at Erickson this past season has been  a failure.  . Those who would belittle Standard  Pack tomatoes have succeeded in creating in the minds .of many the impression that, these tomatoes became  so inferior to Home Pack that retailers demanded tho latter in preference  to Standard Pack. They have gone  even further, making it a personal  matter by stating that the Union's  representative at Erickson slighted  his work, allowing the grade to deteriorate, and permitting the packers to  rush over their Work, thus lowering  the quality of the pack and, of course,  allowing these packers, since they  were working under contract, to swell  their hank accounts aniasdngly.  As the above statement.) were applied more part irularly to September  shipments 1 will deal with this month's  business only, and should what is said  Hcein lacking in continuity may 1  plead that for lack of space I am not,  frying to make a connected argument  for or against; simply stating a few of  the facts the public ought to know** and  leaving each one to draw his own conclusions.  On Oopf, nth the sales; manager fit  tho Union made tin* statement, without any qiialiileal ion, that Standard  Pack tomatoes were the best on the  market, Ahout this time the price  lints* of the Union gave prominence lo  the  statement  that   "Standard   Pack  On  Sunday  a large  crowd enjoyed j tomatoes; had captured t he markets of  The  ifo was  the skating on the Hats  in line shape.

These orders, in several instances,  were large orders (20 to 75 crates) sent  to consignment houses or to fill orders  at a special pi-ice. One instance of  this was permitted to come to the  notice of the shipper where the Union  received sin offer foi' a quantity of  tomatoes at 25 cents below the market  price. Not wishing to turn down an  offer from this large buyer tin* Union  decided to till this order and did till it  with Standard Pack tomatoes.  5. Quantities of tomatoes (believed  to run into hundreds of crates) were  shipped from Creston in boxes and  crates labelled Standard Pack that  never saw the Erickson packing shed.  These crates wero put up by ranchers  doing their own packing and have been  found to contain tomatoes very much  inferior to Erickson Standard Pack.  Were these the tomatoes that captured  the market? It's a. safe bet they were  there at the killing 1  Are not these live facts enough to  show conclusively that Standard  Pack tomatoes never had a "Ghost' of  si chance to prove themselves on thu  (bow's Nest markets? What think  you?  Next we come to carload shipments,  and possibly these give an opportunity  to honestly compare   Standard   Pack  and   Home   Pack   tomatoes.    On   or  about Nov. 25th si circular   letter   lay  in the Union   office   waiting   for   the  sanction of the hoard of directors   he-  fore being   sent   out   fo   the   people.  This letter called   upon every   tomato  grower in the Valley whether his product, wont out. Home Pack   or  Standard Pack t.o refund   to   tbe   Union   7  cents per ei-ate on oyorv tomato   shipped in September.    This   refund   was  necessary to reimburse the Union   for  losses sustained because tomatoes had  arrived at  their   destination   iu   had  condition.    There appeared    to   he   a  reason why this loss took the form   of  a refund iu December  instead   of   appearing on t lie growers September invoice and this reason was described   iu  I,he letler as n "technical  error."   Before permitting Ibis letter to be   sent  fo the people Hie directors decided   to  appoint   an   outside    commission   to  .....ii.;..,. ;.. i n   tin.  Melt "v.    >yo   doubt  the directors will make   public   all  of  the   interest in*.;    information   secured  when they consider the I line ripe, and  I   trust,   iu   disclosing   the   following  Hlfchesser  C. Crawford,   C.F.I  mile 59������, registered at   the Kicchener  Hotel, Thursday last.  H. Rgftiell was at Creston and vicinity  on Friday last on business,  Mrs. Andeen and Miss Adamson  arrived from Cranbrook on  Tuesday.  F. B. Callrnder, the district game  warden, and J, Boydell of Creston,  spent aeonplo of days here hunting  this week.  Capt. Forrester, provincial constable  Croston, was here Wednesday on  business.  Wednesday being the last, day of  the year's hunting season all the big  game hunters were busy packing up  and leaving for home.  ErScksoss  imately li. cents per crate.  JLXlt:   IU-D i/u jl,j_.i__c _-___._-._v. x. .__,._     i..._..���������  toes was $70.28 or approximately 6  cents per crate. This shows a margin  in favor of Standard Pack over Home  Pack of 4i cents, a trifle over the  actual cost of packing. These quantities are the total carload shipments  for the month.  Out of 10 cars shipped from Erickson nine contained practically no  Home Pack tomatoes. One car contained 207 crates of Home Pack tomatoes and the loss ou this car exceeded  the total loss on all of the other 0 cars  taken together by ahout $15.  Draw your own conclusions.  The man who secured the   contract  of   packing    the   tomatoes   and   the  shipper who was supposed   to   super-  Vise the packing, together grew   oyer  one-fourth of sdl the tomatoes packed,  I am not   citing   this   fact   with   the  object of   conveying   the   impression  that these men luive   money   to   lend  but to show that, the work was in  the  hands of thoso who had more interest  in the success of   the   tomatoes   than  they had in their wages.  Thirty-five (35) growers brought  tomatoes to the packing shed and so  far as I know no rancher was refused  a chance to paclc^ tomatoes in tho  packing house sit 3centsper crate, and  of all who did try only two turned out  sufficient satisfactory work to make  it pay. One of those worked approximately 25 days and received $07.00.  The other worked approximately 18  day8 and received $53.05. The contractor worked 25 flays-t and received  $03.85.  The preuident and director,1;   of   the  Union so far aa   my   knowledge   goes  dealt fairly ���������giving the   ranchers   and  Union officials every chance to   make  the Erickson   Experiment   a   success.

The. foundation of our j hopeful forecasts and fully justifies a  prosperity j<$ solid and enduring- j courageous policy of development-  While  mines  may   be  exhausted and 1 The b'arlev harvest is 50.6S.000  bush-  timber may disappear through improvident management, agriculture is a  perpetual source of wealth, increasing  from year to year by the stimulus of  individual industry and personal interest. A wheat harvest of 336,258,-  000 bushels from 12,086,000 acres, an  average of 25.80 bushels, surpasses  the most roseate forecasts of the well-  informed during the growing stages  of the season. "This yield is 104,54.1,-  OlMi bushels, or -15 per cent., more than  the best previous record, ,wbich was  made in 1913. Compared with last  year's rather disappointing harvest of  1������'1,25.0,000 bushels, the increase is  J74.078.000 ,or 108 per cent. The substantial nature of this growth in production is shown by the fact that the  harvest returns are 72 per cent, greater than the average for the past five  years. Coming when the empire's resources are strained by the titanic  struggle, this wealth in sustenance is  ���������as a reinforcement rising from the  earth. It shows that diligence in the  arts of peace through times of peace  is the best preparation against the  plotting aggressor. A facetious military authority has said that any officer can lead his men to fight, but it  requires the genius of a general to  feed them. There is in this some  suggestion of the service rendered the  empire in the grain fields of the Dominion. The strength and sustenance  acquired in peaceful pursuits can now  be made the best defence against the  attack on national rights and human  liberty.  Tbe same satisfactory and highly  important success has been attained  in other grain crops. The aggregate  yield of oats is 481,035,500 bushels  from the ll.n6a.000 acres under crop.  Of this yield ..05,.r>80,000 bushels are  from tbe three prairie provinces.  These provinces also contribute .J04,-  200,000 bushels of wheat. Ontario's  .more conservative method  of raising-  els -from ],509,350 acres, an average  yield of ,'.3.7 bushels per acre. The  average yield of rye is 22.07 bushels  the aggregate being 12,G04,700 bushels from 1,000,600 acres. Flax seed has  become an important crop, and when  organization for the treatment of the  fibre is effected it will be still more  profitable in spite of the necessity it  imposes of restoring by rotation or  otherwise the plant food drained from  the soil. The harvest record is 12,-  *oii4,700 bushels from 1,009,600 acres,  or 12.48 bushels per acre.

I  "Laboring men of England affiliated  | with the various unions are firmly op-{  posed to conscription," said Mr. Bevin.  "We are now enlisting as fast as  exemptions from military service will  permit, and insinuations that we are  not loyal to tho government are resented. Under the law employee., of  the railroads, docks, telegraph, transport and postal services are exempt,  from military service, as well as all  employees of the munition works. The  number of men tints employed in  England can be safely placed at about  1,000,000. If conscription comes to  pass the government would not be  able to add to the army more than  200.00ft men without crippling incsus-  trial conditions.  '"Under the present volunteer system we nre adding men to the forces  for field duty faster than they can be  equipped.  "Our    fight    against conscription is  an economic one, having in view possible conditions   that  will  exist  after  the war is over.

Simply because it  ; builds the spirit of neighborliness.  j The folks in and around it get to know  j one another. To know one's fellows  j always is to sympathize with them.  j Neighborliness spells fraternity���������  | and   fraternity     means     co-operation,  iwlth an economic status that permits  the creation of no indecently rich and  no abjectly poor.  j The small town rises or falls largely  ! as its stores and businesses succeed  i or fail  i-depend upon tbe support of you and  | your neignbors.

That's only one instance of  the service that the local store gives  ���������and not in one item but with every  item it sells.

DEC. 17  nnnBrnftp  Doing Useless VlfsBrk  A local organization that, to our  way of thinking, is not getting the  encouragement due it in the line of  attendance, at its Fortnightly meetings, is the recently re-organized  literary and debating society.  Until this year the organization  was sure of the branches of Presbyterian activities, but for the ensuing season, at any rate, the  society is being conducted liy an  undenominational executive, on  which the Anglican. Methodist and  Presbyterian elements are all  represented.  Debates, of course, are its chief  concern, and in the choice of subjects both the grave aud gay must.  if necessity, be intermingled, with  the preference given to those of a  serious nature of present-day interest so far as may be possible,  with due regard to speakers available,  of course.

According to Russell Leamy, who  has been in the trenches about seven  months, the Allies have now a supply  of ammunition equal to the enemy,  though he says nothing of men.  Leamy appears to have been through  all the heavy fighting in France this  year and so far has came through  without the slightest injury, though  just now he is in England on hospital  sick leave, as is Basil Kerr, who went  over"with the Third Contingent. But  here's the letter:  There has been a second diaft of the  oltli Battalion come over and they are  billeted in Hythe, about two miles  from here, most of theni are from Nelson, and there are some that I will  know, but I have not had time to look  them up yet.  Along with Fred Haggart 1 went to  Sandgate yesterday, and we visited  the Bevan Military Hospital, and who  do yon think we saw; none other than  Russell Leamy, who was supposed to  bo missing, lie arrived in England  about ten days ago and is on the sick  list after being seven months at the  front without getting a scratch.  .Me has some great yarns to tell. He  was in the orchard light at Fostonbert,  at Gi vouch, at Ypres. and was also in  the big light at Loos. Me says he was  only in one bayonet charge and when  they got to the German trench nearly  all of tlu> enemy had beat it, ae.d the  rest were getting away as fast as they  could.  lie Was with Nelson Brown iu tho  light at Ypres. Nels had been working as a. sniper but 1 lie last day Leamy  saw hint he had been put at bomb  throwing. The occasion was the fight  at Ypres when Nels. with a supply of  bombs was seen scrambling out of the  trench in an advance on the Germans,  and since then he has heard nor soon  nothing of him. itusHeii ciiiiins to  have the bomb throwing business  down pretty line, iin he took tho training course on that work.  lie also told us about Hilly Timms.  lie did not sec Timms fall, but came  across his body when he was stripping  the ammunition and water bottles olV  the dead. Lcaniy had been with the  lllth, aloiiK with .lack Smith and  I i-win .Simmon^.

We heard of a German officer who  was taken prisoner, so stubborn he  would not walk to the rear. A little  Gurkha spotted him and asked. "Let  me handle him." He took hold of the  Hun and ordered him to step lively  with the result that the prisoner  struck the Gurkha and knocked him  down, Russell said in less than a  second almost he was up and had  carved the German almost iu two.  Leamy told us that when he first |  went over to France the British would i  fire a few shells and the Germans >  would reply with ten times as many. !  Now, if the Germans fire a shell the |  British and French hand them fifteen \  or twenty. He claims to have seen as i  many as fifteen German shells quite |  close together, none of which had  exploded.  He was on the firing line when   the  31st Battalion went into the trenches,  but it was dark.

Good For Everybody  The   Welfare   and   Prosperity   of   the  Farmer  is of Vital   Interest to  the Country at Large  Agriculture has been greatly benefitted by the banker-farmer movement, not alone in Illinois, where it originated,- but throughout the entire  .ountry. In developing into a movement of national scope and importance it has and is directing a great  amount of serious consideration toward the farm which otherwise would  not now exist. The welfare and prosperity of the farmer is of vital interest to the banker, and vice versa. The  basis upon which this great movement  is built is one of absolute interdependence, which to be thoroughly appreciated must be generally and justly  recognized as fundamentally essential to the best interests of all the  people. There is no reason for petty-  differences and selfish jealousies  whicli havo in the past served to dis-  otmrage and prevent unanimity of effort in making better homes and communities. The official mouthpiece of  the banker-farmers of America is the  Banker-Farmer, published by the agricultural commission of the American  Bankers' association, which is ably directed by Editor B. F. Harris. This  unique, and valuable publication announces the following platform, which  is broad enough and sound enough for  everybody to stand upon without compunction or crowding:  "Education���������Better rural schools.

Changing the Time   Table  LOOKING OLD TOO SOON  eompet-  tlie mi-  civiliza-  The Condition of Too Many  Women and Too Many  Girls  Too many women and too many-  girls look old long before they should.  Their faces become pale and drawn;  wrinkles appear and their eyes lack  brightness. Can this be wondered at  when they so frequently have headaches, backaches and a general feeling of wretchedness and weakness?  In most cases it is the blood that is to-  blame. From one cause or another  the blood has become thin and watery  and it is :i, fact that anaemia (bioou-  lessness) more than any other cause,  gives women this prematurely aged  appearance. It is important that the  blood supply of girls and women be  regularly replenished���������important not  only on the score of looks, but to restore robust health, whicli is of greater value. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually make new blood and restore the  system shattered by overwork or worry.

New     Departure     on     Front   Page  of  C.P.R. Folder  The tendency now, is on the great,  railway systems, to make the time  tables as simple and as clear as possible, so that tbe public will see at a  glance just what is desired in the  way of information. The C-P.R., for  instance, in addition to the changes  noted iu this column, have adopted a  new departure on the front page uf  the time table���������a departure which is  tiie outcome of one. of the many suggestions received by the company in  response to the invitation issued some  timo ago from headquarters to the employees for fruitful suggestions as to  improvements and betterments along  the system. Thig is in the form jf a  notice in large black type, pointing  out when the general change in the  time table takes place, so that the  public Avill know to a minute just now  the schedule stands.  For instance, the notice reads:  "General change in time table takes  effect 12.01; 24.01; midnight on October 31st."  This notice, meeting the eye on the  present folders now in use, warns the  public not to put faith iu the latter  beyond the date mentioned. This notice will appear on the front page of  tbe- folder which precedes that which  is to take its place, and will prevent  any confusion by announcing how  long the present folder is valid and  when it ceases to be operative. Thus,  those who do much travelling will  know precisely when the time table  changes, and when such changes '.vill  be general.

While this question  is being considered to a great extent throughout the empire, its consideration, is possibly, not so keenly-  felt in Canada as in England.  "Dismissing the question of C-ilh-t-  meut, and supposing' it to be a choice  between going to the agricultural  school and staying at home���������what  then?" asks the Nor'-West Farmer.  "Will it pay the young man to go? Individual circumstances, of course,  must govern in such case: but in general, broad terms, we say. 'yes.' "  The reason for declaring "yes," is  set forth by the Nor'-Wesi. Farmer in  tho  following interesting- manner:  "Why?" WJiy spend so many dollars     and     so     much   time    learning  about doing things when, if he  stayed at home, the young fellow  could be using his time and this  money in actually doing the things  lie would otherwise be merely learning about? That is the question  that many a young farmer���������und old  farmer, too���������asks whenever an agricultural college course is proposed.  "Our answer is this: la any  business in life the requisite of  primal importance is, iirst, to make  the man. Wc see this well illustrated today in soldiering. No matter how stern the need, raw recruits  j are. never pressed directly into the  i service. They must be drilled for  months���������drilled not simply until  they have a head knowedge of every  order and how to obey it, but until  obedience to the various orders has  become as "second nature" to them  ���������until, even if asleep, the mind would  instinctively give the answer to a  command.  "The college course furnishes a  different kind of training; but it  gives a very important drilling: and  it, too. is intended, first, to 'make  the man.'  "Just in this connection we incline  to the belief that the mere importing of agricultural knowledge is not,  perverse, the very greatest function  of an agricultural school���������or of any  school, for that, matter.
