You'll of course be curious to know  WmG ������v"srs Siyfaxtxcu the premier honors  at the New Year's masquerade ball, so  we give you them first and foremost.  In the point of aggregate attendance,  the number in costume, the excellence  of the costumes, the quality of the  music and refreshments, and in fact  in all the jtnajor and minor details  that make for the all round success of  such an event, the assembly in Mercantile Hall on Friday night, which  was given t>y the Creston brass band,  was the biggest success of the sort  ever held In the Valley.  Mrs. Fred Smith, Mrs. T. E. Goodwin and Lieut. Crompton were the  judges and their work met with the  approval bf practically all of the almost 200 guests. While the costumes  were all meritorious those of Mrs.  fiJmbree, Miss Nichols and Mr, Pacey  were noticeably too the good/in- contrast witii'their rivals and the wearers depe_tsj_ent fitted into . their  character* very realistically. In the  gents* cortiic the competition was  keener. Messrs. Swanson, Dennes  >nd R.

Another shujihu'ly favored  was Miss Gertrude, Kpott'a Creston  Review costume, an all'white creation  with heudings froiii the Valley's  favorite weekly thickly decked thereon. Of a quaint and decidedly hum-  orous turn wjis Miss Marion Swanson  as a Grandmother, while still more  humorous and decidedly nifty were  Misses Olga Wigen and Alice Carr,  the Siamese Twins���������or something of  the sort.  Were our- descriptive vocabulary  equal to such a rare occasion we would  fain say something nice of nil the  other makeups, but owing to a defect  In this respect, coupled with limited  ������pace, we must, be satisfied with remarking that all the . costumes were  very much worth while and desplayed  the individual good taste of tho wearers.

In  strawberries aloine the gross ^ returns  to the growers is -$17,244,' or an average net price of close to $1.80 per  crate.  During the past, season, at the last  minute almost, a number of the straw-  b'crry growers were induced to enter  the horticultural depai'l*ment's quarter  acre competition and so far as -we.  havo been able to get i*eturns the'  showing here was well up to the hjgh  standards at other centres in the.

The* country is -ad-;  mirably adapted for a'l lines of horticulture, particularly in plums, Norman Craigie this year gathering: 72"  tfrat_8 from 3 trees, a record for the  whole of Kootenay. P.  Industrially, also, 1915 has seen advancement here. Late in July the  Wynndel box factory, owned and  operated by ... Monrad Wigen, cqm-  raenced operations and although too  late for the berry business, the plant  . had a total output of 24,000 boxes and  crates. The plant has a capacity of  1,000 crates a day, and is so built as  to permit of a greatly increased output ��������� by installing some additional  machinery for which room hns been  provided in the factory building. In  addition��������������������������� to the box-making plant  there is also a sawmill which looks  after the local and some outside lumber business.  ' '  During tho yearj too, Wyhndul  came into its own in the mercantile  line.* In June, Mr. T. Butterfield, .fcho  postmaster opened otit a well-appointed general store, which is enjoying  quite a lucrative and steiulily increasing trado.  Other evidences of progress are  noted in the organization * of a local  Conservative Association, whicli , has  succeeded in hn.ving the authorities at  Victoria provide a polling booth for  the electors h<*re, thus .doing away  with a trip to Creston on polling day.  Another of the 1015 creations is a  social club, with a clubhouse all its  own. At proaont only purely social  functions are given, but u-h fundu . accumulate complete gymnasium equipment wiii be added and athletics of  various kind taken up.  ,-v ������      , 1 Xtr-..,..'���������. .*l.,?        ....I.^.sl       >���������.

During the year, too, the people  gave  liberally to ail   calls.. for  Red.; Cross,  tobacco funds and every other' object-  having to do with war "purpose finance.  In only one respect has 1915 been at  all disappointing and that .has. to  do  with new settlers'; in common, with all  the province, there was'little   or   no I  immigration   here.   The' season   saw  considerable improvementto residence  and ranch buildings  and 'there/**was  little or   no lot-up   in   land   clearing  operations.

We had ������  Very good trip across in the   train, except    that   the    eats   . were    rather  scarce, and we couldn't move   out   of  the  car   very   much.    But  at   every'  station we stopped at we talked to the  girls, shook hands with them and said  good-bye;   must have   shaken   hands  with two or three hundred on the way  across, some   handed   out  candy   or  apples, and some had bundles of   slips  of paper with their names and address,  and a request tct'-write tcrlhem.

On Monday we got into the submarine zone and all stood around the  rail with rifles ready, but no "sub"  J appeared.

It   is  a  rectangular  ingot  with   live  large    round    stamps    punched ia it.  Each corner    stamp carries the Swedish  crown,    ivtih     the date.    Around I  the edge is the inscripition ot" caroius j-  Gustavus   X.,   the   reigning   l.ing.  This coiu was struck at Avesta,  Sweden. When fresh from the mint it  fell overboard in the harbor of- Riga.  Russia, from which a dredge brought  it up ten years aao. Coins of the  kind were called "plate money-" Sweden turned them out, almost continuously for 110 years.  Once 116 bronze cannon were melted down and turned into S6.T60 coins;  but the main purpose in minting the  pieces "was to find an outlet i'or the  Swedish copper mines without depreciating the value of the metal.

This is  the opinion of a prominent American  mining engineer who has just returned to London after spending six  months in the Russian empire, mainly  in Siberia, where he is the chief engineer of an important group of  mines.

Even the  generally admitted shortage of rifles,  the wastage of w*hich has be?n unprecedented, is not causing the Russians much' concern as the staff has  realized the rifle used by infantry is  not an effective weapon. The Rus-  v sian army is now well supplied v/ith  Nheavy guns and munitions and their  infantry is being supplied with  thousands of machine guns.

It appears, according to the French paper,  that iix 1830 a Frenchman of the name  of Pierre Ducroquct, the son of a soldier who had fought in the Napoleonic  wars, was considering the possibility  of improving modern armaments and  when visiting Paris in 1836 he met Alfred Krupp in a cafe in the. vicinity  of the Palais Royal- Krupp at that  time, was a manufacturer oi' no very  graat importance, employing about 50  workmen, and was travelling in order  to gain more customers- Ducroquet  explained his ideas to him and started  a long correspondence with Krupp. In  18-11 he wrote "if the bronze guns  have not sufficient resisting powers  why not try and make them of a more  solid material," and in 1845, "I can  find nobody here Co believe in me. If  I only had the use of a factory to  make my experiments. I would give  all I possess to arrive at, soma result."  Krupp, who was then employing 200  workmen, replied to Ducroquet offering him, providing he paid his own expenses, the use of a portion of his factory and, moreover, the help of some  of his workpeople. The Frenchman  accepted and removed his family to  Altenessen. A year later, having  spent all his money on his experiments, Ducroquet announced to Alfred  Krupp the fact that he had at last  evolved the steei gun. Krupp, informed day by day by his workmen of the  progress made by the inventor, already realized the importance of the  discovery. He claimed from Ducroquet  the payment of a sum of 5,000 marks  which ho owed him and in default  seized upon his invention. Ducroquet  brought an action against, him, but  lost his case. He offered his invention  to tho French minister of war, but it  was refused. In 1847 Krupp mado the  same, offer to Loth tho German and  French governments and received an  order for ������00 llolu pieces. The reputation of tho linn was made.  Stock Raiser ������s Sure to Make Money  During the Next Few Years  Some interesting information regarding the beef industry is brought  out in the last annual report of the  Saskatchewan department of agriculture. Figures are given showing  that the cattle breeding industry is  on the decline not only in Canada  but throughout the world. The decrease in the r.\.mber of cattle for  one year in Canada has been 9.3 per  cent.; in United States, 3.3 per cent.;  in Britain 2.1 per cent.; and in France  9 per cent.  This shortage, says the report,, is  being acutely felt in the United  States. The total number of cattle  received during the month of September, 1913, at the six leading cattle markets of the United States was  954,181 while during the same month  of 19.14, only 814,985 were received, a  decrease of 139,196. It might not be  fair to take that as an average decrease, but cutting these figures in  half we have a total decrease in cattle shipments for the year at the  above market of 835,176 head, or  roughly speaking 300,000,000 pounds  of beef. This has beeii estimated to  equal nine beef cattle per hundred  people. This shortage on the above  markets    has    been  in  spite  of the  What Kansas Says  Seme  of the   Benefits of the  Prohibition   Law  The state cf Kansas has been for  o_iost a generation under a prohibition  law.    Tne law has frequently come in  for  criticism,   and  its   administration  has been subjected to more criticism  still-    A signed statement as to prohibition   and   its. results   recently   issued  by  Governor Arthur  Capper is,  therefore,  of move than  ordinary interest and importance. In Mr. Capper's  opinion   the   pr_/Libitory   law   is   the  greatest   blessing   ever   bestowed   on  the state and the greatest instrument  in its prosperity.    The law has never  been   so   well   enforced   as  now,   and  has never been  so  generally approved by the people of the    state.    Approval indeed, he says, is too mild a  word with which to express tha attitude  of  the  people   toward   the   law*.  Most of them are enthusiastically in  favor of it.    Tbi3 enthusiastic approval   has   good   foundation.     Kansas   is  the wealthiest state of the Union per  capita.     On   the   basis   of  wealth   assessed for taxation the average wealth  per capita in Kansas is $1,629.61. The  second state is Massachusetts with a  per capita wealth of $1,353.47, or nearly twenty per cent, less-    Kansas has  a  much  larser relative    number    of  young men and women in college than  any other state according to the census of 1910.    The percentage of illiteracy in Kansas is lowrer than in any  other state in. the Union except one.  Thirty-two   counties- in  Kansas   have ,  abandoned   their, poor  farms.    Forty-  eight counties out of one hundred and  five  did  not  send  a  prisoner  to  the  penitentiary last year.    The per capita    consumption "   ol liquor    in    the  United   States   is   twenty-one   dollars  yearly.    In Kansas it is three dollars  and four cents. Kansas, says governor,  thus saves thirty-million dollars every  year   directly.     The   indirect   gain   is  not subject to computation, but it is  certainly   greater   still.     During   the  last session the Kansas legislature by  unanimous vote in both houses went  on record in a series of strong resolutions   telling   what     prohibition     has  . done for Kansas and emphatically en-  ! dorsing it.    No wonder the people of  Kansas have a patriotic love for their  state,   almost   religious���������not   to   say  fanatic���������in  its  intensity.   The  experience of Kansas is typical of that  of  other   prohibition     communities.     It  should be valuable as an object lesson  to those that are still seeking for' deliverance   from   the     liquor     traffic.  There is not a doubt that prohibition  pays*   morally,     financially,     socially,  educationally   and     politically.     The  liquor traffic, is the greatest handicap  from     which   our civilization   suffers.  Where it is done away with a hundred  problems   which   vex   the   head   and  heart   of   the   social   refoi*mer   solve  themselves   and  the   greater   part   of  the remainder are shorn of more than  half their formidable  character.  STRATEGY OF  GERMANY   FORESHADOWS  DEFEAT  iio  One of the Foremost British Writers on Naval Matters, says that  'v ar can ue u Fought to a-ouccessful Issue Unless Those  in Responsible Positions   are Given Good Support  somft  L. Cecil Jane, author of "The Interpretation of History," and one ot" the  foremost Britisa writers on na-- .1  topics, has written an analysis of the  German strategy in tbe present naval  war, in the 1915 issue of "Fighting  Ships," edited and founded by Fred T.  .lane, which has just reached, this  country.  Under the title "Historical Analogies and the Jsaval War," he goes into  the points of strategy in detail and  draws some interesting comparisons  between past und present naval war-  tare.  His article ends with this prediction:  "Tha strategy of    Germany, indeed,  in the present naval war would seem  to foreshadow her defeat, always provided that it does not succeed in destroying the morale of Great Britain.  In this  war British  democracy  is  on  trial.    It  may prove    that it is  true  that 'a democracy is incapable of em- j  pire,'  or it may,  once for all,  falsify j  that saying.    If it is to do so, it must j  remember that no war can bo brought |  to   a   successful     conclusion     tmless \  those who are responsible for its conduct are given that confidence without  whicli no man ca:i do his best. Every  man who preaches distrust of the admiralty is doing -..hat he can to insure  the triumph of kultur, of that modern  barbarism beside which the barbarism  of the past is  advanced civilization."  In discussing the German strategy  Mr. Jane says:  "In the prese:" . war the military  strategy of Germany has been obviously dominated by the ideal of con  centration of force.    The rush through  Belgium toward Paris, the later rush  upon Calais, Hindenburg's  thrusts toward Warsaw, the grand attack upor.  the Russians in Galicia���������all afford ex-  j amples of this conception.    They were  | all  alike  attempts to    strike quickly  j and hard.   Actually the battles fought  have partaken    of the nature of protracted    sieges,    but    the aim. of The  Germans was undoubtedly to force the  issue, to inflict upon the enemy  sudden and overwhelming blow.  It may be suspected that their naval strategy would have been of the  same character had not circumstances  forbidden. The German fleet is a  modern institution, numerically inferior to that of Great Britain, without  that tradition of victory which might  counterbalance all material differences. Rightly or wrongly, the directors of the German naval policy considered that it would be rash to a degree  tc provoke a decisive battle and being  practical men rather than idealists,  they abandoned or postponed the ideal  stratgey.  Indeed, they adopted guerrilla meth**  ods.    Abstaining from any attempt to  force a fleet action, they have relied  tipon the exercise of superior ingenuity and resorted to a policy of moral  and material attrition.    Their immedi-  ! ate object is necessarily to establish  a superiority of force.    Their ulterior  object  is   more   disputable.     It    may  be their aim to prepare the way for  the adoption of    the ideal policy.    A  i series of blows, individually slight and  cumulatively great,  might, undermine  the morale    and reduce the material  strength   of   their   opponets   until   at  last a decisive action could be fought  j with fair prospects of victory.    Such  is   the scheme outlined by Bernhardt:  *We should at first carry on a defensive war���������that  we  may in    the end  j challenge him (England) to a decisive  engagement on the open sea.'"  The question of the German base ci  Heligoland    and    Cuxhaven    is    then  taken up, and Mr. Jane draws,; a number of interesting historical analogies  showing that similar bases, more impregnable, if    possible, hae been de-  i stroyed by the enemy in bygone wars.  , Start ing'with the conflict between the  I Romans and Carthaginians, he shows  S how the Romans, after eight years of  | warfare, eventually destroyed the "ap-  > parently   impregnable    base   at  Lily-  i bscum a'l*^   Urongna,"  War and Medical Practice  of  Movement for the Nationalization  the Practice of Medicine  "Nationalization of the practice of  medicine" is the somewhat original  description by British labor Delegates in San Francisco, of one of the  changes effected by war's necessities.  That the medical profession should  depend for financial success on the  prevalence of ill-health has always  seemed a defective arrangement or adjustment.

During the winter  of 1912-13 only 24,000 -Canadian cattle were shipped south, while during  the following winter 178,731 wore  shipped.  The question may bo asked, granting these figures to he correct, why  the price of beef is not higher. In  this regard the report states that  the retail price of all meats in Canada today is approximately the same  as in Great Britain, but whilst the  producer in Great Britain receives  from thirteen to fourteen cents por  pound for his choice beef on the  hoof, the Canadian producer seldom  exceeds seven cents for the same  class of stock.

Chinese aro said to pay their physicians while in good health and to  cease payment when ill. An equally  reasonable idea underlies the appointment of a medical officer of health.  He depends for recognition and distinction on the good health of the  community he serves. He provides  certain lines of medical advice and  service to the general public. Medical service in tho schools is a development in tho same direction.  Smallpox is removed from private  medical practice and treated under  public uupcrvision, and there is a  tendency toward a similar transfer, of  othor  contagious   diseases.

The Journal charges that not one  dollar of this money hao boon spent  for legitimate purposes, but that all of  it is going for propaganda work of  the most vicious  description.

That   the   move   to   shift    the  Kootenay River ferry from its  pre-  sent location to   a   point   opposite  the   Goat   River     bridge    merits  serious consideration seems   to   be  pretty well   admitted   by   all.

"Y'es. the jury found me guilty. Do  you know why? I can tell you, Mr.  Gilder, it was because they had been  out. for three hours without reaching  a decision. The evidence didn't seem  to be quite enough for some of them,  after all. Well, the judge threatened  to lock them up all night. The men  wanted to get home. The easy thing  to tlo was to find me guilty, and let it  go at that. Was that fair, do you  think? And that's not all either. Was  it, fair of you, Mr. Gilder? Was it  fair of you to come to the court this  morning and toll the judiie lhat I  should be sent to prison as n warning  to others?"  "You know!" he exclaimed in momentary consternation.

This shows that the poison  was not driven from the system by the  treatment employed. Rheumatism can  be relieved in a number of, ways, bnt  there is only one way to cure it, and  that is through the blood, expelling  the poisonous acid that causes the  aches, and pains and stiffness. To renew and enrich the blood there is no  medicine can equal Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills which go right to the root of the  trouble and cure rheumatism to stny  cured. The following is an .example  of what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can  do in cases of this kind. Mr. Henry  Smith, St. Jerome. Que., says: "For  upwards of a year I was a victim of  rheumatism in a most painful form.  The trouble was located in my legs  and for a long time was so bad that I  could not walk. The suffering which  [ endured can only be imagined by  those who have been similarly afflicted. Doctors' treatment did not help  nie and then I began trying other remedies but with no better results. Finally I was advised to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and although I had begun  to lose faith in medicine, I finally decided to give the pills a trial, i am  very grateful now that I did so, for  after taking eight boxes of the pills  the trouble completely disappeared. 1  was free from pain and could walk  as well as over I did in my life. I  have since taken tho pills occasionally  as a precautionary measure and 1 cannot apeak too highly in their favor.  You can get Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  through any medicine dealer or by  mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes l'or  $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  Female Sniper  The capture of a Turkish woman  who had been sniping with deadly  effect is mentioned in a letter from  Private H. G. Brown of the _4th  Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment.  In an account of the operations at  Suvla Bay, in the. Dardanelles, he  says:  "There were shrapnel and bullets  all over the place. What with our  aeroplanes dropping bombs and our  warships firing, the din was awful.  You have no idea what it is like. A  lot of the Queen's wero hit before  they had a chance to defend themselves. The Turkish snipers are fine  shots. They paint themselves the  color of the landscape. We caught  ono who turned out to be a woman.  She had 50 identity discs, which  meant that she had accounted for  fifty of our chaps."  Splendid   Health  of  British  Army  England's splendid sanitation and  the unprecedented healthfulness of  the British army is a saying feature  in England's status in the present war, .  according to a statement by Sir Jas.  Crichton-Browne, an eminent medical  authority, before the Sanitary Inspectors' association.
