In  consequence the splendid response  is just that much more gratifying all  round, indicating as it does, in such  tangible fashion, that   in    time   of  J&ises������ Siding  Principal Dougherty of the public  school is spending the holidays in  Spokane, leaving on Monday.  Mrs. A. J. Collis spent the week end  with friends in Cranbrook, returning  on Monday evening.  Andy Miller, who has been worried  more or less for the past two weeks  with some fractured ribs, left on  Monday for Cranbrook for , hospital  treatment, returning yesterday.  The Social Club this year will be in  charge of W. A. Pease, who has been  chosep president, nnd Tom Midford,  secretary treasurer. Twenty members  were enrolled at Friday night's dance,  and there is every indication that a  successful season is ahead.  Old timers in the Valley assure us  that never since 1802 has this section  had such a heavy December snowfall.  Ronald Smith will shortly apply for  card in the taxidermists union, During the past few days he has been  busy mounting the head of tin? buck  Dick shot at Arrow Creek, and has  made a creditable job of it.  The opening dance of the Social  Chib at the Todd auditorium on Friday night was not up to the usual  standard of the club's former at-  homes���������owing to the fact that one of  the musicians farlei'l to put. in an appearance. There was a. splendid  attendance and refreshments were  plentiful. The management will see  to it, that the same thing "dont  happen again" and hope to sec the  same crowd out for the next- hop.  national stress the instincts of our  citizens ring true toythe last quiver,  and if need be we stand* ready to  give of our last maii and our last  dollar in the great tiause of defending our national honor.  A glance over the contributions  by districts goes to show that, on  the whole, each particular seetir n  has given considerably beyond  what might reasonably be looked  for in these strenuous days, with  horticulturists particularly. In  view of the straitened circumstances  in which we all find ourselves���������some  even worse than appearances indicate���������comparisons of districts  would indeed be odious.  However, we cannot refrain from  noting the magnificent response  Sirdar has made. A contribution  of ovea $400 from   a.   centre   with  hardly 100 of population all told is  noteworthy, indeed. Such handsome giving unreftuably demonstrates that the residents of the  town are British to the core in the  biggest, best and broadest sense of  the term���������not overlooking by any  means the good work of Mesdames  Loasby and Den-nes, the solicitors.  And in connection with Sirdar's  generous contribution don't forget  that in addition to the list below  these same people in August gave  $86.50 to the proposed Machine  Gun Fund. This amount they  have now decided to divide as follows: $56.50 to Creston Red Cross  Auxiliary, and $30 to the Fund.  Another section of the community that has not been solicited as  yet is the Indian reserve. This  detail is being looked after by  President Lyne who is assured of  the co-operation of Father Lambot,  the Indian priest, who at present  is on the siek list at Cranbrook.  Further subscriptions and payments on account' of deferred subscriptions will be acknowledged  from time to time through The  REVIEW.

D. Crawford.  Vice--President���������Eric Oleson.  Secy.-Tieas.���������H. E. Young.  Executive board���������J. E. Wood, Win.  Browell, T. R. Mawson, Geo. Leach.  J. McRobb.  The association  has a mem bership of  twenty-one.  J. E. Wood received a letter from  John, of the 54th Battalion, a week  ago. He and John Carfra were billeted in a small village with a private  family, a coiaple of miles from Shorncliffe. They seemed well pleased with  conditions. He says every member of  the 54th is anxious to get into the  trenches.  The annual school closing concert  was held in the school on Friday evening last. Every pupil assisted on the  programme and a very enjoyable evening was spent. Miss Whitehead, vvho  foi- the past two years has so ably  carried out her work as teacher, has  notified the trustees the trustees that  she wishes to resign this term.  Chas. Bliss of Deer Lodge Has a contract of hauling 37,000 cedar posts  near Port Hill.  Fourteen deer were shot in Canyon  City this season by local hunters aud  a couple were taken by outsiders.  No lumber has been shipped from  the Siding for stunt* time now.  Fred Waylett was out for a spin on  his motorcycle on Sunday. Snow  roads are not the~ safest kind to cycle  over. At one time the wheels got into a sleigh-runne.1 track and Fred  acted the snow plough for a short dis- .  tance.  Miss Gertie Knott returned on Sun--  day from Glenlilly, where she has been  teaching for the past year.  Fraser. Bros, are certainly preparing for the Valley creamery that is in  prospect of building. They have raised 27 yearling heifer calves from 27  cows of Holstein   and Ayrshire breed.  The chinook wind on Tuesday made  log hauling rather slow. The roads  have not been any too good since  hauling commenced six weeks ago.  Tuesday  afternoon    a,   quiet   i: vent-  took  place   at   the   home  of  Mrs. \i.  Whitehead.    Simplicity and quietness,  reigned supreme; no wedding bells, no  trappings, just the gathering of a, few  intimate friends  witnessed   the marriage  of  Albert   G.   Scholl  and   Miss  Alary Ashworth, niece of Mrs. Whitehead. . The ceremony was  performed  by Rev. R. E. Pow, and after the usual  congratulations tlu.' wedding breakfast,  was partaken of.     The happy couple  aftor a short stay here intend making  the long  trip  to   Ponce Coupe, B.C.,  thoir new  home  in  that land of the  uew north.     Their many friends wish  them godspeed for their journey.  153 80  Rykcrts  Cash-Paid in full  C Rykert  2ft 00  i <(.������ tttbt*-  25 00  A.  ice xjiuiiiff  Cash���������Paid in full  A Miller  5 00  J   II   Webster  5 00  It Hood  ft 00  JCninpfon  12 00  A .Jari'aclough  1 00  Payable thiring year  W A Pease ,....[.  10 00  A L Mathews     HI 00  .1 Hnydel      |0 0()  A \\f  Mason     fl 00  Victor Carr   10 00  Peed ������v   Mat Iwr V) O'.i  T Jack     3 00  W   Watt her 5 00  A L Dougherty    10 00  J Since  Smith .    .

C^  /;A 7  The British Spirit  EFFECTIVE WORK ALONG FAR-FLUNG BATTLK LINE  United   States  Citizen  Writes  of  His  Impressions After a Year in  England  In a letter to the New York Tribune  j a citizei. of ths United States writes  the -British Spirit" after an exper-i NATIVES  The   British Army  and   Northern  Surely the carping- critics who think  this is a good time to embarrass Sir  Edward Grey and Lord Kitchener-witii  .louts and jibes and sneers, do not realize the magnitude of the taslf Great  Britain has set herself to perform, and  is performing no well. Naturally, we  expect nothing hotter from Britain's  foes; the ignorant, savages, who iu  their blindness how down to the Kaiser. Britain's faithful allies have  been unsparing in their tributes of admiration of i.er faithfulness to them  and her splendid achievements up to  the present time.    The yellow press,  of  ience of a year's residence in London  . as follows:  J     "It. was painful leaving there, when  is Fighting Not Only with Beasts in Belgium! everybody we knew, all the nation, is I  ��������� .    ^       . .   ���������,     ,      .      _,  _,.     ,.    , j suffering  untold  anxieties,  incredible  France,   but  with lurks in Gallipoli, the j woe, making sacrifices of blood aud  ' treasure, enduring all things in silent,  magnificent patience, with unflinching  courage.

Jr. Bryan and Mr.  Henry Ford, am", so tend to "prolong  the war."  Anyway, up to tiie present time only  ahout half a million Armenian men  have been murdered and a few hundred thousand Armenian women ravished and converted to Mohammedanism by the Turkish allies of their most  Chrisian Majesties of Austria and Ger-  us a cheery good-  ., . . ,    j many, with the tacit consent of those  the disappointed contract hunters, the i august monarchs. Kven a protest from  cads with unsatisfied ambitions, and . Washington might save a few of the  the political soreheads, who see m Bn- j  tain's extremity a possible onportuni  ty to advance their silly or petty fads,  and at all events to keep themselves  before the public enjoy an unseemly  and unenviable monopoly of the snarling business. Look at the length of  Britain's far-flung battle line. The  critics only see the comparatively  short but desperately contested front  held by the British troops in Belgium  and France. More sane observers see  Britain engaged upon a buttle front  extending all around the world. The i  British Navy has prevented France  from, being blockaded, and saved hoth  England and France from invasion by  tea. Today it. is still protecting the  British and' French shores, blockading  the North Sea, coasts of Germany,  Sweden and Denmark. It has reduced  the submarine warfare of the war  zone to insignificance: it is effectively  guarding the Sue'-. Canal and Egypt  against a very real danger: it is assaulting the i'orts of the Dardanelles,  holding the treacherous King of  Greece in check: keeping the second  biggest navy in the world in innocent  desuetude. * It has swept the. high  seas of German shipping and paralyzed German commerce. All the German colonies hut one have fallen to  British arms, and that one is failing.  The British army is fighting not only  with be3sts in Belgium and Northern  France, but with. Turks in Gallipoli,  ike Euphrates valley, on the Tureo-  ____yptian border, and in the eountry  baclc of Aden. It is landing troops  in-Greece- to go to the aid of Servia.  Soon the British troops will have to go  to liie rescue of the American missionaries -and  their  converts    in  Av-  American proteges in Armenia: but j  nobody knows how lien* Balm, Count j  Bernstorft and others of the same kind  would take it- They might be quite  annoyed, or, on the other hand, they  might be provoked to derisive laughter.  The task at Gallipoli is not nearly  so simple as it looks. The peninsula  is long and harrow, so narrow that a  comparatively small force can hold it  a long time against a much bigger one.  It is a question of time and exhaustion  in men and resources. The, treachery  of King Ferdinand has done much to  postpone the capture of Constantinople and so to prolong the war; but the  capture is only postponed.  ��������� General Greene, of the U.S.A., in a  lecture ' before the New* York State  Historical association the other day,  j estimated the war strength of the allies at 7,!.H0,0(K) and of the enemy at  .",260,000. lie places the losses of the  allies at _,167,00'0,-*--anil of Germany,  Austria and Turkey at 3,830,000. How  long   can   each   side   keep   up?     The  ! all  Were���������bidding  j bye and a happy home-coming���������and  | the formula so often and so earnestly  1 repeated, 'Come io us again in hap-  j pier days.'  I **I would not have forgotten the ex-  j perience of the past year; I would not  (have missed the opportunity of seeing  j England in her time of trouble; noth-  ; ing could make up to me the loss of  j that great privilege. I do not exagger-  ' ate when 1 say that the year in Great  j Britain was the most intensely inter-  ' esting and inspiring year of my life  since that year so long ago when the  Civil War was endea and our country remained undivfded. It was wonderful to witness the ennobling of  England. the splendid fashion in  which that nation consecrated itself  to the maintenance of all the grand  and great ideals that have made her  mighty aud worthy of praise in her  long past. And, oh! how I envied  those who were privileged to work for  her���������and I could do nothing but sit  and hold my breath and look with  streaming eyes���������fists clenched���������and  pray for her success.  "Our last night but. one in London  was t.he. night of the Zeppelin raid. I  wouldn't-have missed having that experience. There were seven women in  my cousin's house during the -5  minutes of bomb dropping, and air-  guu tiring, and many of the reports  made the. windows rattle. But none of  the seven exhibited the slightest trace  LED  TO   DESTRUCTION BY OWN RULERS  That Bulgaria, Following the  Example  of  Turkey,  Should   with  Eyes   Wide   Open   Have Submitted   to the Lure of   the  Kaiser, is a Marvel to Mankind  of the Kaiser.    To the simple mind it  General satisfaction is expressed at  the discovery that the allies are not  disposed to make with Bulgaria the  fatal mistake which a year ago helped  Germany to play her game with Turkey as a pawn.  Immediately after commencement  of war grave suspicions were aroused  | by the action of the Porte. The allied  powers, probably thinking it incredible  that Turkey should commit the suicidal act of throwing in her lot with  Germany and Austria, contented themselves with offering sound advice. It  was not till Nov. 5 in last year that  Great Britain declared war against  Turkey. Meanwhile Germany, having  a free hand, utilized the interval by  flooding Constantinople with officers,  military and naval, who took over  charge of the Turks' army and fleet.  They erected, manned and armed the  elaborate fortifications of Gallipoli  that have cost, so much to the allied  armies. Profiting by experience the  civilized powers served Bulgaria with  an ultimatum having a run of twenty-  four hours, promptly following up its  termination by landing an Anglo-  French expeditionary force at Salonika.

May I Suggest an  explanation ot" the besotted fury of  the Germans against the British,'and  of their desire to turn the British Islands like Belgium, into a pit of agony  and shame? Jr. is tne explanation given years ago by a wise British publicist, writing on Bismarck's hatred.  Bismarck, he said, felt his inferiority  to an English gentleman and it made  him writhe. That is what is the  matter with   the  Germans.  "They hate the British because  every time tliey come in contact with  a member of the race they feel their  inferiority in everything that spells  breeding, taste, the social decencies,  the point of honor. It bites like acid  through their dirty vanity and they  itch for revenge, the revenge of physical violence, and spiritual torture. It  is amusing as well as disgusting to  see them trying to explain away their  'scrap of paper' hypothesis and to see  the man l.issnncr essaying foolish regrets for his gutter-song of 'hate-'  They have no regrets for wrong done.  But they are beginning .to realize what  decent, people think of them and their  vanity squirms again as they ones  more sense dimly their ingrained inferiority."  incredible that interlopers,  of supreme capacity, should  to balk the  wishes of a na-  er of the octopus  which,    stretching  forth a tentacle right or left, seizes an  unresisting victim. His plan is simple,  identical in its operation at Constantinople and Sofia.    To both he promised  on  the conclusion  of the    war large  tracts of other people's lands. That, of  course, assumed that he would come  out of the tight conqueror, arbiter of  the fate of four nations���������Great Brit- j (:as?  ain,  France, Russia, and Italy, not to i  mention Japan.   Of course, his dream, j  involving   payment   of   A*ast   indemnities   by  the  subject nations,  may   be  realized.

An officer invalided home after the  battle of Huiuch tells me he was surprised at the result of the magnificent  advance of the British forces on the  German lines. During prolonged duty  in the trenches lie closely studied  them and had sorrowfully arrived at  the conclusion that tliey were impregnable. As we know, that was a  view confidently shared by the Germans. What achieved the apparently  impossihle was the terrific fire kept  up day and Eight from writish batteries. There is now no shortage of  supply, whether of guns or of ammunition.  The first evidence of the new state  of things is seen in this successful attack, resulting in an important advance of the British and French position. There is, he said, no prospect  now of relapse into the former condition of affairs. The consequence is  that the forward, movement will he  continued till the Germans are driven  out of France and Flanders. While  in a quietly determined manner and  speech this high authority, fresh from  the scene of conflict, is thus hopeful,  he does not overlook or niinirni__e the  danger and difficulty ahead. The Germans are on the homeward march.  But they will make it, at least, to begin with, exceedingly slow, taking  heavy toll from the driving i'orc-e in  the rear.  What puzzles the officer is the neglect of the Germans to adopt the  strategy that proved successful in the  of the British and the French.

Jt has proved to be a tremendous boon  to the wounded soldiers.  The discovery was first announced in tke Lancet  by Dr. A. D. Sorrel 1 Cooke and Dr; V.  Gabriel, two London medical men who  introduced  the  remedy  into Padding-  ton Infirmary with remarkable results.  Of    the hundred cases treated there  not  a  single   failure     was   recorded-  Most of these cases were of people in I  vory weak health and with terribly in- j  fected wounds, and of infirm, old people who appeared to have no chance  of recovery. Equally gratifying results  have beeu obtained at the front. "When  applied to  a wound  the  garlic stops  the infection and heals the wound iu  an astonishingly   quick   time,   where  other antisepctics  Injure  the  tissues  if used at tlio strength required to arrest the infection.    Tho juice gets the  infect ion  under  control  within  forty-  years hours, (.ven in tlio worst cases.  The   medical    properties   of  garlic  were well known in our grandmothers'  duya, and  no garden  was connidered  coinplele that did not make provision  I'or medicinal herbs, including garlic.  But  the  medical  lorn of women has  almost died out.    While I ravelling in  Franco recently an army doctor found  an   old   pi'ii:.*:n:it     woman   carrying   a  hunch of garlic.    She said she rubbed  pieeos  of  garlic  on  sores  and  found  thnt they cured tlmm.   Native apothecaries lu  India effect cures by using  it  as si plaster.

Of the brand new cabinet material the papers are all pretty well  agreed that the newcomers have  each been a signal success in their  private business careers, and are  more or less specially fitted to . successfully administer the departments assigned theni.  Aside front any prejudice .as to  whether Mr. Bowser bullied Sir  Richard into retiring, or whether  the premiers relinquishment of his  post is but another proof of liis  sagacity in reading the signs of the  times, all will watch with interest  tho fortunes of Premier .Bowser,  In the new premier we have a  type of premier almost the opposite  of that of the retiring chief. Sir  Richard travelled far on his personality and a magnetism or .something of the. sort which, to a marked degree, enabled him to impress  those he met with his own viow  point.  The new premier is a. leader that  has to be known to be appreciated;  while not lacking in those qualities  that excite admirrtion ho   is wont  ion occasions too readily to   display  Bowser administration has not the  confidence of the electorate, the  Brewsterites can hardly afford to  refrain from placin g men in the  running and thus give the people a  chance to refute or- substantiate  Liberal claims in this direction.  At present the Wilson policy of  watchful waiting obtains. It is  just, possible the Bowser administration as a whole will seek a new  lease of life by an appeal to the  people toward the end of January.  Local and Persona!  To-morrow is Christmas Day.

One of the most regrettable  occurrences in connection with the conduct  of the business of life insurance is to  receive advice direct from the widow  i or some other member of the family,  *, or from  the company's agent,  that a  ; person   has   died   who  was  a   former  ��������� policyholder in the company, but who  ; lias allowed  his policy to lapse.  i     That,   ihis   does   not*    infrequently  j happen  is  only  ioo  evident  from  the  ! many   letters   containing   such   advice  j received  by  all insurance, companies.

Yours  truly,  C. D. RODGERS,  iPiie  Manager.  It happens often that a woman, on  the death of her husband, is left without any means of support. Her duties'  have not lifted her to meet the problems of making a living l'or herself  and her children. Poverty and privation stare her in the face;  Xo man has any excuse for subjecting his wife to such a future, Whatever he earns, a part of it should be  invested in life insurance to guarantee her some' adequate provision in  event of his denth.  Sudden change of heatlh also in  many cases deprives the family of  much needed assurance which the  assured has allowed to lapse, and*.  which in the fancied security of perfect past health he felt confident of  reviving whenever it suited his convenience. The company is frequently compelled, however reluctantly, to  decline an application for revival, owing to the fact that the policyholder  is unable to furnish evidence that he  is still an insurable life-  Scholarships in Asriculture | fmH|NIPE6 GRAIN   EXQKNGE  B5-SJBS.?

"When one reads -the-discussion  in parliament, one might easily fear  for England; but they are mere fjtje-  words. The nation is ot good old  stock, and woe to him who forgets  this.

"Every man in Europe is now a  soldier; England is the only land  that has not taken to arming the  people. Drive England into a corner and tomorrow every man is a  soldier. There may be jealousies  between her colonies, but if it came  to extremities, the colonies would allow no hair of England to be touched.

"As a matter of sheer common  sense we know that if the liquor business were abolished the people would  ouy more of farm products, more cf  clothing, more of flour, more of meat,  more of every commodity than they  .10w purchase." ._ .  "The experience of no-licence cities  has ever shown that where the saloons are closed men buy more cigars  and tobacco in spite of the frantic  effort made by the liquor business  within the past few months to persuade tobacco dealers aud growers  that it is to their interest to fight pro-  aibition.  In fact, outside the liquor business  there is not a single industry, Ijne  if trade or business the interests of  which would be adversely affected by  prohibition. The cooper will not make  whiskey barrels or beer barrels, but  the demand for flour barrels will be  much greater. The manufacturer of  saloon bars will find his market gone,  but will find a bigger market for home  furniture opened. The man who  builds buildings for liquor selling aud  liquor making will build factories and  homes. The man who makes beer  and whiskey bottles will make milk  bottles.  All this is determined by the simple  rule tliat the people- are going to buy  the things they want, the necessities,  comforts, and luxuries of life and that  their buying- will be enormously increased when the liquor traffic stops  robbing them."  When a brewery in West Virginia  was closed it was converted into a  packing house, whicli immediately  gave employment to ten times as  many men*a.s the brewerv had ever  done.���������TI- Aruott, M.C., M.C.P.S.  Co-operative Marketing of Poultry  Eggs in the  West  While     the    activities  or   the   live  stock branch of the Dominion department of agriculture with regard to the  organization of Co-operative Egg and  Poultry   Marketing   associations   have  been  largely confined  to date  to  the  eastern     provinces   of the Dominion,  the need and opportunity for work of  I this   kind   in   the     western   provinces  j has not been overlooked.  J     From     the   fact   that   co-operative  1 marketing   of  poultry   products     was  something new, it was thought advisable to thoroughly test out the. practicability    of the system    before  extending it to a wider area.    Satisfactory results    having been obtained in  the east, arrangements are now beinjj:  made to extend the work to the- western provinces.  The new field to be .-organized will  receive the benefit, of the experience  of men who have been associated with  the    co-operative work    since    its in-j  ception.    Mr. T. A.  Benson,  who for \  the    past    three years    had  been, in  charge   of  the  co-operative   organization in Prince Edward Island, is being  transferred to the province of Alberta  to fill a position similar to that whicli  he has held in Prince JCrlward Island.  Mr. J. H- Hare, who has had an extensive  experience  in this work, not  only, with    the Ontario provincial department of agriculture, but also during the last two years with the commercial   and   marketing    end   of   the  work   undertaken   hy   the   live   stock  branch, has been given general supervision of the Egg Circle work being  conducted  by the branch.    Mr.  Hare  is now in the western provinces, and  will  devote  the greater    part of his  time for the    next year to directing  operations here.    For the present he  will continue his activities principally  to the province of Saskatchewan.  SHE!?

The announcement says no special crosses can be  received i'or transit and explains that  known graves are marked by small  wooden crosses treated with creosote  to make them waterproof.
