J. Wigen was a Creston caller on  Monday. P. Andestad, J. J. Grady  and J. Hindley were in on Wednesday.  Misses Vesta Smith and Barbara  Mawson of Creston were visitors here  on Saturday for the dance.  E. Pease of Alice Siding is living " in  these parts for awhile, employed by  Monrad Wigen to help haul in the  season's cut of logs.  It would seem that our friends at  Alico Siding cannot got the best of us,  even at a dance. The affair here on  Saturday night took on much the  aspect of the weather, to wit, a freeze  out. The few who did venture ont  assert they had tho time of their lives.  From letters received we gather  t hat Christmas passed quietly at tho  front. Pte. Douglas Butterfiold assures uh Fritz was very quiet, hardly  liring a shot all day, though tho British artillery was blasting away all the  timo,  W. A. Pease of Alico Siding was  soon riding around this district on  Wednesday.  The annual meeting of tlio Oo-Opor-  ativo Fruit Growers' Association will  bo held on Saturday, January 22nd, In  the dunce hall, commencing at 7,!W  p.m. Business : Election of oflleors,  manager's report, and financial statement. A full attondance of members  is urgently requested.  YVohcur Alice Hiding bus ollicinlly  given up its claim lo being thf original  Garden of Eden sihee that nasty wind  e/imo along aud buried everything  under snowdrift!)- We cannot print  the namo thoy now one un the editor is  it god fearing man. lalcewiseinodcsty  forbid*; uh making any claim like the  above, but it is worth mentioning that.  ley in some lines during 1915 has not  been up to the high standards of previous years, yet from the agricultural  and horticultural standpoint the 12  months just closed have witnessed a  substantial and satisfactory growth in  our basic industries. In only one direction has there been a let up in the  expansion of our- varied activities, and  that concerns the bringing of new  areas under cultivation. Due to the  somewhat slender returns from the  fruit crop of 1914, combined with the  higher prices for stumping powder,  and the inability of financial institutions in general to oblige with the  wherewithal to prosecute this work  our ranchers wore compelled to abandon plans for clearing up and cropping  now land, and have had to devote their  energies to stimulating greater production on an area very much the same  as to size us obtained tho year previous.  Tho outstanding advance along agricultural lines is shown in an increased  export of live stock und dnlry produce ns well as in the shipments of  live poultry and oggs. On tho score  of live stock shipping it is said thut  1015 is almost tho first year that  Croston has had a worth-inontioning  number of cattle to solid to outside  markets, Heretofore the P. Burns Co.  woro wont to bring dressed meat Into  Creston rather than ship it out in car  lols live weight. Of course lhe shipping has not been heavy, six ear  loads being.tho grand total, though  this does not include a quite considerable export of dressed beef lo Crows-  Nest points.  In dairy produce tho mouth of .June  found more 'nutter available than the  local market eould consume, and a  moderate estimate is that during lhe  months of .lime, July and part of  August, the Creston valley dairying  ranchers were bringing in at IoiihL half  a. ton of butter whieh found a ready  sale at   Crowsnest   points*    And   the  Wvimili'l has  hail no wind,    itr   hiihh'.

Lindley, and later the Fruit Growers'  union, were supplying eggs to Crows-  nest points, at the height of the season  a weekly export of from 200 to 300  dozens being, a usual thing. Fruit  Growers' union officials state that the  trade in live chickens is at least 40  per cent, greater than in 1911.  While the valley makes no claim to  being a horseman's country, in passing  we would note that during the year  visiting buyers picked up over three  carloads here���������largely Indian stock,  of course. Consequent upon the increased herds of dairy stock and beef  cattle, has come a-largor demand for  feed, which tho local rancher has in  part met by cropping a good deal of  his orchard area to clover. While the  crop grown on Kootenay Hats is moro  than ample to supply the demand for  that class of fodder Huscroft Bros.,  on tho Rcclumunion farm, put up oyer  400 tons of this grade of hay alone and  are finding a ready sale for any surplus at $15 a ton.  Horticulturnlly considered 1915 has  been about as satisfactory a year as  the valloy has over known. Outside  of potatoes, and a fowothor vegetables  price:; have boon better than normal  and yields generally woll up to tho  season's expectations, considering 1015  was an off year. For tho strawhorry  grower 1915 was a banner your both  iu tho size and excellence of the yluld  us well us for the financial returns.  Until the end of tin** yeur figures  showing the complete fruit and voge-  table export of the year are not obtainable, though we have been for-  uinate enough in securing tin; sniaii  fruit shipments thro nidi lhe Wymiilcl  Co-operative Fruit Growers' ansooiu-  t ion.  In 1911 Wynndi-1 had an export of  strawberries and raspberries totalling  .1707 crates. In 1915 the shipments  totalled 7H20 orutoH, with a revenun of  H;17 Vt (    in      1915,    hm   eimoi'i veil    wiih  $10,501 in 1911. and $7011 in (Mil from  .'Ji'iiS il ,i( ������*..->.

Owing to better prices per crate  in small lot shipments the practice of  sending berries out in car loads is not  resorted to except at this height of the  season.  While the   year's   total   export   of  apples will exceed the   1914   yield   of  16,927 boxes, due loan excessively wet  June the grade was not nearly so high  as a year ago, much of the fruit going  out as crated   apples.    Notwithstanding this deficiency in quality prices on  all grades of apples   ruled   almost   10  per   cent  higher   than   in   1914,   due  lai'goly to the smaller supply and also,  in some measure, to tho   early-season  merger of tho Lindley-Fruit  Grower's  union soiling agencies, under the sales  management of the former gentleman.  With this house the Wynndol agency  worked in harmony, as   did also D. S.  Timmons, who did   some ^independent  soiling of his own   and a few   friends'  produce.  Such \egetal.os as the prairie is  capable of producing havo found rather  a poor sale this season, particularly  in tho case of cabbage and even cucumbers, while potatoes are in poor  demand at a drop of almost 100 per  cent, ovor ono year ago s quotations  A considerable improyement over 1914  tomato prices is noted this year, due  to the Fruit Grower's union establishing a packing house at Erickson and  marketing two grades "Standard  Pack" and "Home Pack"���������tho former  guaranteed as to grade and quality.  The venture has more than proved its  worth and its scope will be considerably extended jn 191U.

"I feel," his letter continues, "that  Bueh crimes ought to be exposed to  the utmost, and that the charity of  other nations will more than ever be  drawn to the unhappy refugees  when it is known what their friends  and fellow countrymen have suffered."  Viscount Bryce says the details  confirm and amplify the ghastly  history of deportations by which  Armenians in northern and eastern  Anatolia were driven to a death of  fiendish cruelty. The first part of  the evidence, he says, was received  lay the committee of enquiry in the  United States, and the seeond part  comes from an Armenian gentleman  at Tiflis, who received it from refugees where the events happened.  "Tbe sufferers of the peasants and  mountaineers in the region of Van,  Mush, and Samim," Viscount Bryce  says, "seem to have been more terrible than were those of the peaceful  townfolk, described in part one of the  report. Every successive piece of  evidence increases the horror of the  story and confirms the d.eadful certainty of its truth."  After giving part of the evidence  received 1'rom the "United States,  Viscount Bryce says that the following* extracts were taken from his  correspondent at Tiflis:  "Toward the end of May Djevdet  Bey, the military governor, was expelled from Van. Djevet fled south  wards and entered Sairt, with some  8.000 soldiers, whom he called 'butcher battalions.* He massacred most  of the Christians of Sairt, the details  of which nothing is known. On the  best of authority, however, it is reported that he ordered his soldiers to  burn in the public squares the Armenian bishop, Eglise Vartarved, and the  Chaldean  bishop,  Addai 'Shor.  "On June 25 the Turks surrounded  the town of Bitlis and cut its communication with neighoring Armenian villages. Then most of the able-  bodied men wore taken away from  their women by domiciliary visits.  During the following few. days all the  men under arrest were shot outside  the town, and buried in deep trenches  dug by the victims themselves. The  young men and children were distributed among the rajjfte. The remainder, 'the useless lot,' were  driven to the south, and are believed  to have been drowned in the Tigris.  #*'Tt is in such a fashion that the  Turks disposed of about 1.5,000 Armenians at Bitlis. At Mush, early in  July, the authorities demanded arms  from the Armenians, and a large sum  in ransom of notables of the town.  The head men    of    the village were  subjected to revolting tortures. Their  finger nails and then their toe nails  were forcibly extracted; teeth were  knocked out, and in some cases noses  were* whittled down, the victims  thus being done to death under  shocking lingering agony.  "The female relatives of the victims who came to their rescue were  assaulted in public, before the very  eyes of their" mutilated men. The  shrieks and death cries of the victims filled the air, yet they did not  move the Turkish hearts.  "In the town of Mush itself the  Armenians, under the leadership of  Gotoyan and others, entrenched  themselves -in churches and stone-  built hous.es, and .fought for four  days in self defense, but Turkish  artillery, manned by German officers,  made short work of all the Armenian  positions, and every one of the Armenian leaders, as well as their  men, were killed in  the fighting.  "The ghastly scenes which followed may seem incredible, yet these  reports have been, confirmed beyond  all doubt. The shortest means employed for disposing of the women  and children in the various camps  was by btirning. Fire was set to the  large wooden sheds in Alijan, Mo-  grakom, and other Armenian villages,  and the absolutely helpless women  and children were roasted to death.  "Many women went mad and threw  away their children. Some women  knelt down and prayed, amid the  flames which were burning their  bodies. Other ' shrieked for help,  which came from nowhere, . and the  executioners, who seemed unmoved  by this unparalleled savagery,  grasped infants by one leg and hurled them into the fire calling out to  the burning mothers, 'Here are your  lions.'  "Turkish prisoners, who apparently witnessed some of these scenes,  were horrified and maddened at remembering the sight. The odor of  burning flesh, they say, permeate.,  the air for many days.  j "In the hilly country of Sasun the  1 surviving warriors found themselves  surrounded at close quarters by 30,  000 Turks and Kurds. Then followed  one of those desperate heroic  struggles for life which have always  been the pride of the mountaineers.  Men, women and children fought  with knives, scythes, stones, and  anything else they could handle.  They roiled blocks of stone down the  steep slopes, killing many of their  enemies. In the frightful hand-to-  hand combats, women were seen  thrusting their knives into the. throats  of Turks.  "When every warrior had fallen,  several of the younger women, who  were is danger of falling into the  hands of the Turks, threw themselves  from the rocks, some of them with  infants in their arms."  Circular Sent to all Lumbermen, Mills  and  Factories in Ontario  To present to the French government a number of portable houses as  a gift, in order to relieve French people who have been driven out of their  homes" and deprived of most of their  property during the advance of the  German armies towards Paris last  year, is the suggestion of a committee  formed and operating to help the people. In the,, portion which lies this  side of the present line of the armies  large districts thus ravaged are being  reinhabited by their people, who are  under conditions of great privation  and  distress.  Hon. G. Howard Ferguson, minister  of lands, forests and mines, for Ontario, has sent a circular on the subject to lumberman, mills and factories  in the province. In the course of the  communication he says:  "A gift from the great lumber provinces in the shape of a number of  these houses labelled as a gift of  Canada and denoting the province  from which they come, would serve  not only' insofar as their number was  concerned, to meet the wants of the  people but would stand as a very excellent advertisement of what could  be done in this direction, and the cost  at which it could be done.  "The factory people are, I believe,  prepared to make a very large number of these and to send representatives to Belgium and France at the  proper time to undertake business negotiations. Could not this government, the lumber mills and factories  unite in making a presentation of a  certain number of these houses in  knockdown condition, the factory men  putting the iinal processes on the  lumber cut to dimensions, the lumber  mills providing as their part the lumber necessary, and the government of  tha province, say, undertaking the  cose of transport either to the port  of shipment or to the port of destination."  It is pointed out these houses should  be on hand for early spring of next  year.  WONDERS  OF  THE BRITISH ADVANCE ON BAGDAD  Marching  Through   the   Land of Adam and Noah to the Ancient  City of Bagdad, There Could beiJfto More Striking Episode  in the Conflict Beyond Europe  German Kultur  We learned recently the surprising  news that a mixed British and Indian  force was within a hundred miles of  Bagdad. Should our troops reach  their goal, they v. ill have performed  one of the most dramatic exploits in  the history of war. They will have  marched over 400 miles from the Persian Gulf, throughout the lands of  ���������Adam and of Noah, to seize the place  which even the Turks still call "the  glorious city." Unless the allies take  Jerusalem, there could be no more  striking episode in the conflict beyond  Europe.  The operations which have thus  developed began modestly enough last  November with a joint naval and military advance from the head of the  Persian-Gulf up the Shatt-al-Arab. the  in ti     iuuii-cu     u^v     LHO    C^XIUIICU-uU    xtx    liic  Tigris and Euphrates. After one important action the expedition reached  Bussorah, sixty miles from the sea,  and, perhaps the oldest seaport in  Asia.  From the quays of Bussorah daring  Arab navigators sailed many cen  ago and sacked Canton, in    the  when  Arabia  held  the   secret  of  the  sea.  It was the port whence Sindbad the  Sailor, whose chronicles are plainly  the exaggerated record of many genuine voyages, roved the eastern seas.  Nelson himself has left on record that  he  visited  Bussorah as a lad  in  the  he    East  mored motorcar" of the enormous  series of mounds which are all that is  left of the mighty city of Babylon. It  should soon be tramping through the  desolate ruins of Seleucia, where once  the Greeks ruled over a million souls.  Its footsteps will ring within the gigantic vaulted hall of Ctesiphon, tbe  last relic of the winter palace of tbe  Parthian kings.  And then at last, if aii goes well the  expedition will sight the gilded dome  and minarets of the mosque of Kasi-  min, and all the flat roofed houses of  Bagdad, standing amid groves of date-  palms and orange trees. From the  first chapter of the Book of Genesis  it will pass at a stride to the very  heart of the "Arabian Nights," and  sweep through the shady bazaars  v.'jiere ITarcun al-Raschiu loved to  roam.  The fall of Bagdad owuld resound  more loudly throughout the east than  all the battles fought between Warsaw and Ostend.   Bagdad was once, in  Providing: for the  Maimed Soldiers  Canadians, to be Placed in Institutions  to Receive the Best Treatment  Soldiers returning from the front,  according to the plans of the hospitals  commission, will not be sent home,  but will be placed in the convalescent  institutions provided for the purpose.  Since tbo influx of disabled men  began, it has been' found that their  tendency is against going into homes.  Thoy wish to go to their own people.  The homecoming celebrations do not  always stimulate their recovery.  In view of the fact that the government will have to pay theso men  a pension in permanency, the commission proposes to exercise its authority and in all serious cases placo  them in institutions whore they may  bo properly and scientifically cared  for and their condition ameliorated.  This, it is felt, is particularly desirable because of the fact that the  peiiHion is to bo based upon tho nature and extent of tho permanent injury.  By way of overcoming another  complaint it has been decided that  the" pay of nn invalided iiiiin shall'  not censo whon ho reaches Canada,  but Khali be continued until Hiieh  timo  as his  pension  begins.

A complete post was taken, including doctors, nurses, and apparatus. Tho most interesting object oi  all is a machine for curing sufferers  from gas poisoning.  It consists of a cylinder with two  compartments, one containing oxygen, tho other an alkaline substance  now being analyzed. Full instructions i'or its use were found, and  the French greatly admired the technical perfection both of this machine  and of tho groat j upply of surgical  instruments. But the most significant detail was nn inscription on the  cylinder itself. It is there described  as "Pattern D 11)15, improved from  Model C 1912, improved from Model  A ION)/'  This would seem to ho proof that  tho use of chlorine gas in the meditated war wus settled nt least as  early as 1910.  At tho sanio place and time the  French also captured an elaborate  iviaciihio for distributing poisonous  ru:j.

Germany  the war by saying that it was neces- ,  sary to extend its Kultur to all the  world. At first it was assumed that  Kultur was identical with culture, and  many who admired German literature  and scholarship were quite prepared  to admit that the spread of German  culture to all peoples might be a good  thing. But it is only now beginning  to be understood that Kultur does not  mean culture, but the distinctive German spirit and methods of life. It  means ths death of democracy and  the extension of governmental control  to the minutest features of social life.  It means the abolition of private  choice and initiative, and the subjection of all personal aims to participation in a national purpose and the  means of executing it. It means that  order of things which has made Germany the best prepared military nation in the world and enabled the  German government to include all the  private resources of the nation in its  military operations. German Kultur,  as now explained, has no place for  free will except the will to conform  to the spirit and methods of the  state.���������Prof. W. H. Allison in New.  York Times.  A Hero's Death  Men Were Inspired by Their Captain's Gallantry  Among the many galiant deeds ot"  this world war none stand out more  prominently than the charge, led by  Captain Langdale, against the Hohcri-  zollem Redoubt. The men were ranged in the trench to his right and to his  left all ready and waiting for the  word to leap up tho parapet and rush  through a hundred yards of German  machine gun lire and riilo lire. Capt.  Langdale inspired every soldier in  sight by quietly sitting on a camp  stool smoking a pipe as though nothing of moment was about to occur.  Once he relit the pipe and took a fow  puffs. Then, rising with a shout, he  yelled, "Come on, Leicestershircs!" as  he leaped over the parapet, while all  his men dashed after him. Within a  rush of twenty yards they met tho  storm, whieh decimated but did not  check them. When they wero half  way to the goal the German tiro partly  ceased, nnd they could bo seen retreating to their further lino. Still  the central figure, well ahead, kept  yrilHng his encouragement. Then  came a mnd rush for the capt.1 rod  trench. Many fniled to reach it, and  those, that did found tholr gallant  leader missing. He was among tlio  dead some thirty yards behind.

One column went tip the River Karun  into Persian territory to save the admiralty oil pipe line. .Another has recently pushed its way for a hundred  miles through the swamps and lagoons formed by the old channel of  the Fh.phrates, and shattered a large   'Turkish   force  at Nasiriyeh. ��������� A. third  defended | :o'ii>mii has steadily advanced up the  Tigris,   and   is  now  at  Kut-el-Amara,  only 100  miles from Bagdad by land  though    _I00   miles     by   the   winding  course  of the  river.    Long  before  it  reached Kut the expedition was well  past  the   worst   obstacles���������the     shallows   and     rapids���������on     tho     Tigris.  Though  the river is at present at its  lowest, there should be good water all  the  way to Bagdad, if we are relying  on   water   transport,     which     is   not  clear.  j ue   re^iuu  in   win'-n   u*ji   ui^._ij.-j  .*_..-.  now operating is ot extraordinary interest, although the immense alluvial  plain between the Tigris and the Euphrates contains not a single hill and  abode of Moslem literature and art  and science, a capital which is said to  have had a population of two millions.  Tradition survives decay in Asia far  more than in Europe, and though the  Bagdad of today has shrunk to a place  sheltering about 1.20.000 people, it still  has a fame and a prestige surpassing  Delhi or Peking. It is incomparably  older than any city in India or China,  it is mentioned in the records of As-  surbanipal and Tiglath-Pileser, and on  j one of its quays may still be traced an  j inscripition of Nebuchadnezzar, King  of Babylon.  I _ liet it never    be    forgotten that we  British were in the Persian Gulf, and  thus on  the  border of these ancient  lands, before the Ti.rks.    Though the  Turks extended their rule long ago to  the borders of Mesopotamia, they are  I comparatively newcomers in Chaldea.  I They took Bagdat". less nan three hun-  ! dred years ago. They have never real-  ! ly conquered    the Lower Tigris    and  \ Euphrates.    Below Bagdad   they have  been   taxgathers     and   sentinels   and  ! nothing more.   There have never been  i many Turks in either Bagdad or Bus-  ! sorah, srfve soldiers and a few eft'ic-  i ials.    To all the people of these reg-  j ions  they  are  oppressive and  rapacious aliens, and it will not be surprising if the Bagdad populace hails the  British as deliverers from.the Turkish  yoke.  The loss of Bagdad would inflict an  irreparable blow upon Turkish prestige,   but the greatest result would be  hardly a' tree.    It is  an  endless  flat, 1 that it would strike at the very heart  yellow expanse of the silt of countless  ages, the richest soil in ths woi'ld, the  granary of early civilizations, where  wheat grew wild when man first found  himself. Somewhere ih this area lies  the traditional site of the Garden of  Eden. The Arabs place it at Kurna,  where our troops have been encamped  since January; but hMr William Will-  cocks pins his faith to Hit, a place far  above Babylon, on the River Euphrates.  There are very fow corners of the  world where the'Bril.i.sh army has not  marched and fought before, but this  is one of them. For a parallel to the  European invasion ol' Chaldea we  have to go back to the days of Alexander the~(lreat. The British force is  traversing land over much, if we are  to accept the inviting theories of Sir  William Willcocks. the ark of Noah  must have floated. It has passed by  the sites of cities where dwelt the  Sumerians, that wonderful riveo whose  very existence was unsuspected by  scholars until recent years. It is today  within a two hours' run "by ar-  of the German dreams of ultimate do-  ! minion in Eastern Europe aud West-  ! ern Asia, whieh largely contributed to  i bringing about the present war. The  Bagdad railway was one of the central features of German world policy.  The dreams are shattered, Great Britain is neariug Bagdad, and at Bussorah she holds the gate by which  Germany had expected to emerge upon the shores of the Persian Gulf, If  it is not too soon to speculate upon the  future consequences of this memorable conquest. With a revival of irrigation Chaldea ought to become  again one of the granaries of ihe  world, while Bussorah should be  made an Eastern Hamburg. These  questions belong to the still distant  period of peace.  The advance on Bagdad is a daring  feat of arms, but it must not be forgotten that the Turks may send reinforcements down the Tigris. The army  of India, which has heavy normal responsibilities, is endeavoring to do a  great many things at once.���������Lovat  Fraser,  in  the  London  Daily Mail.  ���������1  bus    been  y wan  I'l-ndi1  ���������mid  rlii",  1:  11    ��������� ;  . - . .  ci.-1 ui' <  i ii-.ii'  Cultlnfl  Off   Mllitnry   Luxtiriea  1.1> r-ml" nlni nl her lit Hi ii ff it'(M'������ 111  the French army must get along will  li.������-i.i'   iiutoini'bib's    and   lum-ei-.   here  i*  by urib r  or Gen. ��������� Galllenl,   mln  r of war.  ��������� Britain's Prompt Action  Why  the   German   Walkover   Did   Not  Materialize  Viscount Haidane. the former war ,  secretary, speaking at llamstoad, de-'  clarcd that the Germans would have  reached Paris and perhaps Calais, hnd  not tho government takon prompt nc-  tion upon the warnings which he himself and others had glvon of tho German intentions.

A aid the best possible evidence that our population is  on the increase is evidenced in the  move to create two new polling subdivisions in the valley for the next  election. Another of our new year  gif rs is the organization of a Women's  Institute, which will be officially inaugurated on January 8th. At yet  another point the valley came into its  own 1915. In November, Dr. Hall,  dentist, located here permanently.  During the year, too, a jeweler and  watchmaker opened out here.  Industrially the year has been to  some extent notable. The Wynndel  box factory and sawmill got into operation for the first time in July and  although too late for any strawberry  bnsiness had a total output of almost  25,000 boxes and crates, in addition to  a small cut of lumber. The Canyon  City Lumber Co. mill which shut down  in April, 1914, re-commenced cutting  in September, 1915, and to-day is "employing some 75 men at logging, sawmill and shipping operations.

The  board of trade had a useful year,  among its accomplishments being the  passing of a pound law governing the  area in which cattle may run at large.  It also succeeded in inducing the C.  P.R. to stop its eastbound express  trains at two points between Creston  and Wynndel for the accommodation  of shippers���������obviating a drive to  Creston with pei_shable fruit.  During the year, too, the local newspaper passed into new hands and as  a result Creston now claims the  brightest small town weekly in all the  Kootenays. In addition to keeping  Creston to the front through the medium of his paper editor Hayes is seeing to it that all possible publicity is  given the valley via the several western dailies for which he corresponds.  The Creston school has had an enviable reputation during the year just  closed. At the midsummer entrance  examinations former principal Macdonald graduated ten pupils out of a  class of that number, while the attendance at the opening of the fall  term   as   compared     with   the   June  Blinco.and Stocks & Jackson are giving  the valley a name as a beekeeping  country, while the town itself with its  numerous commercial interests stands  ready to promptly accommodate all,  with a splendid superior and public  school;'churches; band and every possible mercantile line well represented.  The next stop is Erickson, tributary  to which isa country specially adapted  to vegetable growing where in 1915  over 4400 crates of tomatoes alone  were shipped, besides quantities of  other yegetables, much small fruit and  apples. Further on eomesCanyon City  where mixed farming is almost exclusively in evidence, some ranchers  there having holdings up to 240 acres  with from 40 head of cattle on down,  being wintered. In this community,  which has about 40 bona fide-on-the  land settlers, closeto 100 milch cows  were guaranteed for the proposed Creston valley creamery, with prospects  of double that number if the factory  starts. In addition this point has the  sawmill of the Canyon City Lumber  company that right now is employing  75 men in its various departments.  On the extreme east is Kitchener, renowned for its fishing, hunting and  scenic beauties, with some timbering  also.  In view of these varied activities,  all of which is beyond the infancy  stage, plus the splendid shipping facilities and Creston's ideal location next  door to a big prairie market, there can  be no denying that our ciitzens are  building on the surest foundations,  and this combination   of   agriculture,  EXTRA SPECIAL���������Ginger Snaps, fresh stock   ������Jg^  best qualify, while they last, 2 lbs. for      "������"  &vu  Utt...

Perhaps the proudest beast the valley has to make is of the splendid response it has made to the call for men  for empire defense. Up to the present  the Creston valley has contributed  almost 50 men for active service and  has four more in training with the  102nd battalion. Of these at least four  have laid down thoir lives foi- the  cause, two or three are prisoners of  war, and several have boen more or  lisss severely wounded.  In our response to the patriotic fund  appeal Creston's showing has been  unique.

Mary revived to (dear consciousness,  which   was   at.  lirst.    inclined  toward  hysteria, but this phase yielded soon  under   the   sympathetic   ministrations  of the man.

Here Garson paid the fare and then  helped the girl to alight and onto  tho hallway. Mary went with him  cjuito unafraid, though now with a  growing curiosity.

At a m������eting recently held  at Columbus, Ohio, under the auspices  of the U.S. office of experiment stations, it was resolved that the minimum requirement of such training  i'or teachers of agriculture in secondary.schools should be ten per cent, of  the total credit hours for graduation  from a standard agricultural college  or' its equivalent. This means the  passing of the day when an agricultural teacher need be merely a graduate from a farmer's course in an  agricultural college. The teacher of  agricutlure in both college and high  schools needs to have a general training, a scientific or technical training,  and a professional training. The numerous failures of agricultural college  graduates as- teachers in the secondary schools, also in colleges, is rapidly forcing the issue. The necessity*]  for pedagogical training is' being recognized by those who are in a position to note the successes and the  failures of young teachers who have  had the threefold training above indicated, and of those who have not  had such training.���������Rural Educator.

Canada and the Rebuilding of Belgium  During 191.., in a time of peace,  says "Canada Lumberman," Belgium  imported building' and rough furnishing materials to the following extent: From Germany, 332,256.736  kilogrammes (1,000 kilogrammes approximately being equal to one ton);  from the United Kingdom, 156,038,-  642 kilogrammes; from France, 1-15,-  OS-8,746 kiiograrames; from the Netherlands, 38,073,465 kilogrammes;  from the United States, 9,301,978 kilogrammes. Germany had a strangle  hold upon the trade.  The Belgians are determined not  to take up again their business relations with the Germans. All the  great volume of trade with Germany  will cease and the bv^^ng rnat.nvif>-c  which made up her 1913 exports to  Belgium amounting to over iS^.uOt,-  000 "kilogrammes, must come from  other countries.

"The  Turkish minister oi marine, a Young  Turk, of prominence,������was in a club in  Constantinople playing cants. A messenger entered, and told him that one  ol the boats in his navy had fired 011  tie Russians, thus creating a casus  belli. The face of the minister went  white. ''I didn't know anything ahout  it!" he gasped out; "I didn't know  anything about it."

In order that as little dirt as possible may adhere to the cows, their  udders, flanks and tails should he  kept clipped; all loose dust can then  be easily brushed off with a damp  cloth before milking. Never should  anyone be allowed to milk wet, as it  is a filthy exercise.  From tests with open and covered  pails it has been found that a covered pail -closed about two-thirds  with a hood will keep out at least  75 per cent, of the dirt. These pails  are just as convenient to use as tho  ordinary ones and cost little moro.
