 r.  t/<p  &' *���������*���������.,  v ���������;_. ���������-'  rw  Vol. VIII.  CRESTON, 'B. C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18,' 1916  No. 5  48th Battalion is  A Pioneer Corps  A letter from Fred Hurry, dated 14th  January, confirms the report that the  48th has been con verted into a Pioneer  Battalion, to which at least four or  five Creston "Valley men are attached.  The letter also brings the good news  that Russell Leamy has completely  recoyered from a bad attack of trench  -fever and is back in camp again, expecting to shortly go on to the front  once more, From the letter one gets  the impression that amove to finish  the war is prevalent in the Old Country, and that is the utmost confidence  prevails as to the successful outcome  of the attack.    He says in part:  "I went to London on Saturday for  the week end, coming back on Sunday  night. I am beginning to get acquainted there and usually have a  good time, so hate to come back so  .soon. You are certainly wrong in  assuming there will not be much more  fighting; the worst of the war is yet  to come, but it will be for victory for  AVehave certainly got them going. It  is well known if there had not been a  mistake about the reinforcements at  Loosthere would have been a different  tale to tell. You may as well prepare  for another summer on the ferry. I  will not be back by next fall.  "We are a Pioneer Battalion now,  and should the war end before next  autumn we will likely be one of the  corps to leave for Canada. We are  signed on "Until the end of the war  or six months after." We have about  110 horses in this Battalion now and  Mrs. Babtist and children, who have  spent the winter here, are leaving  shortly for Fort Saskatchewan, Alta.  The soft weather has caused a number of the woods crew to quit work  and seek a climate with less snow.  Hoboes are quite numerous.  The lath mill was silent on Saturday.  Messrs. Smith and Midford were at  Alice Siding for a hard times dance  and the week end.  A car af timothy hay was unloaded  at the Canyon the early part of the  week.  Con. Hall has sold his winter's cut of  cordwood to the several families at the  mill.  Mr. J. Blair of Kelowena, B.C., is  here for a few days' visit with his  brother, Campbell Blair. ���������'���������'.  Charles Wright of  Kuskanook Dead  Word arrived this week that Harry  Weatherburn had enlisted with a  Highland regiment at Edmonton, and  expects to go overseas in a few  ���������""���������or-ths.  Miss Wetherell, who has been a  guest of Mr. and Mrs. .1. M. Craigie  for some months, left on Friday for  the coast.  Ivan, the seven year old son of Mr.  and Mi*s. Staples, met with a serious  accident on Tuesday���������while playing  with an axe he cut his foot rather badly, cutting some of the tendons. He  was taken to Creston where Dr. Henderson dressed his injuries.  G. A.

"It would be a treat to see Jimmy  Long iri the army. He is a natural-  born crank and I am afraid the dis-  eipline and routine is liable to get his  goat pretty often.  "I see Russell Leamy quite often,  lie is attached to the 43ru Battalion,  which is abont half a mile from here,  lie expects to get back to the front  before long. He is iu the 16bh, with  .lack Smith and Irwin Simmons.  "Of our little bunch tliere are four  at the front.

"I am sending you by this mail some  military souvenirs in the shape of a  few cushion tops. The little poem on  the khaki one should hit home to a  few in Creston.

Erickson ranchers who still have,  hay on the flats are grtting a move on  these^days to get it hbme before the  spring thaw gets going properly, and  thus avoid the expense of chartering  a C.P.R. steamer to transport it.  Mrs. W. A. Pease and two children  of Alice Siding were Sunday visitors  with Mrs. E. Martin.  Mrs. Oleson, who has been a patient  at Mrs. Leyesque's maternity home for  a couple of weeks, returned to Kitchener on Wednesday.  The mild weather is responsible for  much spring feyer. Greenhouses are  being put in shape and many are getting their plows and implements  ready for an early start, at spring  work,  A snowslide of considerable size  came down the mountain side at Canyon early Tuesday evening, The noise  and rumble could be heard for several  miles and many citizens rushed out  fearing a Zeppelin air raid.  Word has arrived from Rochester,  Minn., stating that Mr. Strples, sr.,  had reached the hospital, and had  stood the long journey fairly well.  The Valley lost one of its pioneers  and a highly respected citizen on February 7th, when Charles Wright of  Kuskanook died, at Chicago, whither  he went about three months ago to  be with his brother, whiie taking  treatment for cancer of the stomach.  The late "Charlie" Wright, as he  was familiarly known to a very wide  circle of friends, was quite an old-  timer in the Valley, having come with  the advent of the Great Northern  Railway to Kuskanook, where he ran  a general store for some time. He  was also in the employ of the C.P.R.  at Kootenay Landieg for several  years, but latterly he has devoted a'l  his time and attention to his Kuskanook ranch on which he was making  a repuataticn as a breeder of thoroughbred Jersey cattle, having brought in  seyeral carloads of* them the past few  years.  He was in 7_th year, and is survived  by three sons, two of whom have  volunteered for overseas service, while  the third is at the old home. His wife  predeceased him some years and his  remains .were laid to rest alongside  those of the partner of his joys and  sorrows at Chicago, the last sad rites  being conducted by the Masonic  Order, of which he was a member of  long standing.  While the passing of Mr. Wright  does not come as a surprise his demise is none the less keenly felt by a  wide circle of acquaintances.    He was  ft   n-onftamavi     _-vff fKu    ttlfl  <_r*Vir_r_l      wtincA  ������-    ^__.-������-w���������.-������ .'*     w*-~        V.U     __���������__.___.. -.,        ..   geniality, enterprise and square dealing made him -friends everywhere.

Wynndel did not have an overwhelming majority at tht band dance  on Monday, Miss Olga Wigen and  Messrs. Monrad Wigen, C. Carlson  and T. and E. Butterfield comprising  the entire turnout.  Few Americans are travelliug a-  broad this year. Cousin Jonathan is  "doing Europe" in quite another  fashion.  In reading the February" number of  Pearson's Magazine we met with an  article by Charles Edward Russell, on  the subject of co-operation, entitled,  " How the Orange Growers Won  Free." In these perplexing days of  the fruit selling industry it will be.  found interesting reading for tin-  Valley ranchers. The article, in part,  reads as follows :  The whole story of oranges in California from bondage to freedom.  lt begins in 1877 when the first ship  ment, a single carload, was made from  Los Angeles. Before that time such  oranges as had been grown in California were for the delectation -of the  natives. It is hard to realize that an  industry nt w so colossal is so young,  but so stands the fact. Up to 1880.  even, if you in tbe East got any  oranges as a rule they were from  Florida or the Mediterranean.  In 1877 the railroads had hardly lie-  gun to tap Southern California; that  was one reason why oranges were not  grown foi* shipment. Another was  the extreme improbability that oranges could be hauled 3,500 miles by  rail and arrive In New York, say, for  anything but the garbage scows.  When shippers demonstrated that this  could be done, orange planting began  in earnest, the great California Seedless got upon the market nnd manipulators began o perceive, that here was  if   it. were   "handled  Although ihis is leap year the   war  news need not make us give  way   to j a   Good Thing-  the jumps. 1 right."

Postmaster Rogers is putting in  considerable overtime in spots this  month. For instance, it was 2.80 a.m.  last Friday boforo 5151 came in.  Sirdar mourns the death of Charles  Wright, news of whom* death at Chicago on the 7th reached hen Tuesday.  He was 74 years of age.     The remains  were interred in Chicago.  At. a well attended meeting of the  local Conservatives on Monday night  the Sirdar Conservative Association  was re-organized for 1010 with the  following officers:  President    W.

Biddulph,   in  his hurry he forgot  to   date,   arrived  from Brainshott Camp, Liphook, England, on Friday last.    He states that  all the Creston   men   with   the   54th  Battalion are in great   shape,   but  he  has no inkling of when they are liable  to move oyer to the fighting in France.  Art says the regiment crow,   which  is his special charge, can  talk   almost  as good as any parrot.    So far it   has  not   added  any   bad   lanuage ti   its  vocabulary but   he   fears   the   worst  with so much Irish   and Scotch   (not  whiskey) in the hut and Bobby Burns  night so close at hand.    Part  of  his  letter follows:  "You will, no doubt, be wondering  what has happened to tho Creston recruits since we left Vernon. Well we  are now in England, and we know, it;  this old stunt of walking around in  about six inches of mud doesn't agree  with most of the boys; still the last  week has been protty fine and as the  days axe beginning to lengthen we are  beginning to liven up like the bear���������  just a little touch of sorehead, but  improving.

So truly had  the business been "handled right" that  not a grower was making a cent, The  manipulators had come down like  wolves on the fold and hardly did a  thing to the business and the fatness  thereof.  The ranchers (Califoriiian foi* farmers) produced   the   .oranges and   t lie  manipulators   came   around   to    buy  them.    There was a  kind   of  Manipulators' Union; there always is. Nothing  seems to bring men together like  the  chance of copping off a   Good   Thing.  The Union or  Combination  operated  so much like a Chamber of  Commerce  you eould hardly  tell  the  ditVerence.  All of the  members  worked   together  with enthusiasm to skin   the grower  and make a good job,  and as Huckleberry   Finn    says,   "they   done    it."  Their   buyers   went   from   ranch   to  ranch  commenting disparagingly  on  the fruit and describing the low   state  of the market until it seemed  that il*  the  grower got  anything   at all  for  what he  had   to  offer it  would lie  a  special dispensation of Proyidence  iu  his favor.  If he would not fall for this sort of  thing, he might sometimes keep his  fruit until a second buyer appeared,  whom he universally found to be  worse than the firiit. Or maybe he  hauled it to the nearest purchasing  warehouse (Answerable to a North  Dakota line elevator) and _old it there  for what ho could get for it���������subject,  of course, to underweighing and other  gouges, ns wheat is.  About this time the institution be-  came ho had tiiat the whole industry  was threatened with destruction.  Some growers began to cutdown their  groves and to go in for other crops.

I  had   inherited     a   rheumatic  tendency   through   my   mother's   farm  ,ily.   and   in   my   early   days   suffered  frightfully.     About   three   years   ago  the  pain and  stiffness  settled  in  my  left knee joint.    I was lame and wafted   with  a  very distinct limp.  Nerviline  was  brought to my notice and I  rubbed it into the stiff joint four or  live  times a  day.    Jt  dispelled  every  vestige of pain, rcuiuoed tho swelling,  tonic our the stiffness and gaye me the  full use of my limb again.    I don't believe there is a pain-relieving remedy,  uot  a  single   liniment   that  can. compare   with   Nerviline.     1   hope   every  person     with   pains,   with  sore  back,  with   lameness,   with   lumbago,   with  neuralgia���������I do hope they will try out  NTerviline  whieh   1  am   convinced  will  quickly and permanently cure them."

It was observed over the  Russian lines, and was allowed to ������?et  well to the rear before a RussFan  flotilla ot" aeroplanes mounted and  cut off its retreat, and concurrently  the artillery became busy.  The   Albatross   soared* to  altitudes  where   the   cold   must   have   reached  minus 31. or C>3 deg.'of frost, Fahrenheit.    Soon it was seen to be circling  aimlessly, and filially it made a good  | descent,   quite   normally,     into   some  ; marshes   behind  th������ Russian  lines.  ;     After a couple of hours' search the  machine   was   discovered.     The   pilot  : and observer were both dead in their  : seats,  and  the machine   was   in   perfect    condition.    The    men   undoubt-  ' ediy   peris-he-c!     tliroug  ; cold    aggravated    hy  [ through  the air.  it is probable that the last con-  * scious act of the pilot was to plane  : down, that his and his companion's  : arms being frozen, they were unable  | to loosen, the straps which bound  j them to their seats, and that heart  failure from cold brought death.

For Returned Troops!  The  Work_ of the Canadian   Patriotic  Fund and the Soldiers-  Commission  The establishment of the Soldiers*  Aid Commission for Ontario, of which,  the secretary is Mr. C. N. Cochrane,  .parliament buildings, Toronto, is the  first result of the report recently issued by ihe hospitals commission,  and the forerunner of others.  The care of the soldiar who has returned to Canada, mutilated or weakened as a result of active service, is  the prime duty of Canadians. For  some months the Canadian Patriotic  Fund has been endeavoring to ensure  that the men already back from Eu-r-  history of< the settlement of new countries. In the ten or fifteen years im-  mcdialelv preceding the construction  of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the  middle west and the Pacific slope in  the United States filled up and developed with hitherto unheard of rapidity. That record, up to then unequalled was seriously challenged by  this country a quarter of a century  later. For years we saw the packed  liners swinging into their docks in an  BtnendiD^ line and great trains leav- port  ing by the scores and hundreds car-  lying asw Canadians to new Canadian nomes.  To cantrol and direct this mighty  stream v>������ were forced to create and  set up much machinery. How well it  did its work the tens of thousands of  acres of rich wheat lands of Western  Canada, only yesterday virgin prairie,  the Wfcwl built, prosperous towns in  what were only a decade ago desert  places, bear ample witness.  Then came the great upheaval, the  dawn of chaos over a horror stricken  world and.the damming up, for tne  time being, of the stream of new life  and new blood from across the ocean  io our land.  Those years of rapid settlement  were marvellous, but, after all, how  really small a part of our country is  even yet under tribute to the basic  industry of Canada, agriculture. Figures are often dull enough, but in  this case ihey are graphic. Those  given here are necessarily only approximate and given in round numbers, but they are the latest available,  based on the last census and form a  reliable source, says the Montreal  Star. To take our own* province,  Quebec, we are estimated to have  40,000,000 acres of land suitable for  agriculture. After a century and a  half only 16,000,000 acres of it are  occupied and only one-half of this is  under cultivation, or one-fifth of the  total. The Maritime provinces have  L'0,000,000 acres suitable for agriculture and 11,000,000 acres of it is under cultivation.    Ontario has  50,000,-  000 acres of agricultural land, has  23,000,000 of it occupied and 14,000,-  000 acres of it cultivated. Manitoba  has 40,000,000 acres of farm land and  raises crops on a quarter of it. Saskatchewan has 68,000,000 acres ot  land for farming, her settlers have  taken Up 30,000,000, and have .14,000,-  000 acres under cultivation. Alberta,  with the biggest agricultural area in  Canada, 82,000,000 acres, has assigned only 20,000,000 acres, and of. this  onlv 4,000.000 is under cultivation.  Last of all, British Columbia, with  1.5,000,000   acres   of   farm     and   fruit  Quebec one-fifth, Ontario a little over  a third, Manitoba one-quarter, Saskatchewan a trilie over a'fifth,  less than one-twentieth, and Britisn  Columbia one-twenty-fifth. We have  got, all told, 325,000,000 acres of _feand  suitable for agriculture in Canada,  and we have under cultivation only  54,000,000 acres, or, roughly, one-sixth  of it. Is there anyone who will dare  to estimate the wealth this land will  produce, the population it will sup-  when it is all taken up. all yielding the reward it is capable of yielding for labor bestowed?  For the moment immigration from  across the ocean is almost at a standstill, and rightly so. Canada would  not at this time draw one man from  the firing line to increase her material prosperity. These men, like our  own boys, who have for  with them on the fields of Flanders or  elsewhere, wherever the world war is  being waged, are fighting our battles  for us, spending themselves for the  salvation and welfare of Canada just  ���������s the Indian fighters and the pioneers  of old  spent themselves.   They    are  three-  ops  should   suffer    no    want.    This  land,   work, has boen voluntarily undertaken  by local committees    of the fund, al-  .    though in most instances their time is  Alberta t fully occupied with the task of malc-  ' ing provision for the families of soldiers.  Each soldier is interviewed at Quebec by a representative of the fund,  and a confidential report sent by the  latter to the patriotic committee ol  the town to which the soldier is going. This serves the two fold purpose  of protecting- the fund against the  greedy or unscrupulous and of givinc  the local committee information that  is helpful in finding employment for  the deserving. Not every man wUo returns to Canada wearing his majesty's uniform is included in the latter  iUCMUhTiM (W vnmm army  FRENCH  FORCES ARE A MARVEL OF EFFICIENCY"  Famous   War   Correspondent Tells of Actual Experiences in the  Field,   and  says that the French Army has Every Detail  nged with the Utmost Care  mjx  Fi'i  Arran  It is a splendid tribute which E.  Alexander Powell, the famous war  correspondent, pays to the valor and  of   the   French   armies   in  efficiency  the field.  "We have heard a lot," he  said in an interview, "of the efficiency and organization of the Ger-  j mans. In my opinion, the French are  ! now equally efficient. That is a sub-  i ject on which 1 think I am competent  to speak, for I watched the P'rench  army grow, so to speak. I have seen  it from the Marne to Champagne,  which I left but recently. In some  respects, indeed, I think the French  army superior. The Germans have  efficiency but the French have enic-  iency plus the human element, and  that counts for a great deal. If a  French battalion loses its commanding officer, it is not disorganized.  Every man knows his work, and, if  necessary, is able to act independent  category, hut the great majority have j ly.

We have the land and the infinite  possibilities that arise from it. But  let us not be content with a self satisfied contemplation of mere possibilities. Un tilled acres and undeveloped resources profit nobody. We  have had a machine for the direction  of immigration flowing into this  country, i-nrt. as it stands, it will be of  little enough use to us when the  crisis comes. We will need a far bigger and far more efficient equipment  than we have ever had if we are to  handle the flood of new population  that we can direct to our shores after  the war is over. It can be made to  break all re-cords aud put all precedents to the blush. There will be \.o  use in our attempting to handle it  with inadequate equipment. We  have, for the moment, leisure in  which either to enlarge our present  facilities for the handling of immigration or to create new ones. When  the war is over and the rush is upon  us it wild be too late. Failure to provide now for our certain needs will  be disastrous.  This is our opportunity, golden in  more senses than one. Shall we grasp  it, or shall we fail?  aone their duty in the fullest degree  To the latter it has been the privilege  gathered ' of the fund to present a small badge  bearing the words, "For service at the  Front." The men who are wearing  these badges are the worthiest citizens that '.ve can acknowledge. Like  charity, that badge should be allowed  to cover a multitude of sins.  The work that the Canadian Patriotic Fund can do for returned soldiers, however, is limited by Act of  Parliament, and' it has been specifically enacted that no assistance can  he given by the fund to "any person  who is in receipt of any gratuity, pension or allowance paid by his majesty  or by any foreign, government in consequence of incapacity or death occurring of incapacity or death oc-  account and largely because the pensions and gratuities paid to incapacitated men are oft-times admittedly in-  mans do not- possess."  Speaking of the German bombardment and occupation of Antwerp, Mr.  Powell related how the Teuton wave  swept over what was apparently an  empty city. "At the first word of  the German approach," he said, "the  people fled to the cellars. When the  Germans came marching through the  streets, there was not a soul tc be  seen. I believe that my photographer and I, standing on the balcony of  the American consulate, were the  only spectators. I suppose the Germans expected to see a great demonstration. One would have thought that  the principal streets would have been  crowded with sightseers. There Mas  no one. Every window was boarded  up. Every doorway was closed.  There was not a piece of bunting.  There was not. even a stray dog on  the   streets.     The   Germans   marched  adequate, it    has    been necessary to j down the magnificent thoroughfare of  establish a hospitals commission and j the main  street,  and  that  was  their  iM-i/i    ^..__,.oi<_    "<������������������ rec.eption   in   Antwerp.     I   think   my  disablement fund. The officials of  the latter, in their report to the federal governm nt, recommended  among ether measures, that provincial commissions be formed for the  purpose of supplementing these pensions either by monetary grants or by  free training in various trades. The  Soldiers' Aid Commission of Ontario,  as we have said above, is the first  i step in this direction. Already it has  announced its intei.tion of mobilizing'  the manufacturers of Ontario and we  do not doubt that the process will be  facilitated by the manufacturers  themselves. Others* also will b_ asked  to lend their aid in discharging a  great national duty and there is every  prospect that in Canada at least the  traditional tragedy of the re turned  soldier will have no place.

"I spoke a moment ago," Mr.  Powell went on, "of the efficiency ot  the French armies. I do not wish  to be misunderstood in my remarks  about German efficiency. There  seems to be an impression here that  the Germans now in the field are  largely old men from soldiers-  homes or boys from school. That is  not the case. The Germans have a  very formidable army today. A  few weeks ago, I saw 20,000 German  prisoners taken in the Champagne. 1  talked with at least a score of them.  While I saw old men and boys of between eighteen and nineteen years of  age, I should say that fully !*5 per  cent, were men of between twenty  and forty, in tho pink of health.  They were dirty and hungry of  course, but they were first class  fighting men. The German army  is still extramtly efficient and ex- i  tremely formidable. It is no use  hiding that fact."  "In regard to efficiency of the  French armies, were any particularly  striking instances brought to your  notice?"  "Well, take for instance, the organization of tho scene painters. 1  heard while travelling around in  France that the scene painters from  the theatres had been mobilized for  war service. One hears '*o many  strange things in the war zone. But  I found afterwards that the mobilization  was    an  actual fact,    and    had  proved remarkably efficient. Wfaat  the French government has actually done is tbis: It has mobilised  ail the scene painters from the theatres and formed them into battalions.  Instead of painting drop acts for  theatres, they are now painting scenes  to conceal gun positions.  "Suppose, for instance, you wanted to place a battery of guns in  a city square. In the ordinary  course of events, after that battery  had fired <&. few shots, a German  taube would hover above it, locate  its position, flash it by wireless to  the Germans, and in an hour probably tbat battery would be out oZ  action, with all the gunners dead.  Now the scene painters would erect  a contrivance for all the world like  the top of a circus tent over the battery. The canvas would be -painted  to match the remainder of tiie square.  If it. w-ere summer, it might represent a bed of geraniums or rhode-  dendrons, anything which would look  like the rest of the square. The  German airman above would then see  nothing of the guns, lie would see  the canvas, but to him it would look  just like the remainder of the square.  He would think, as a matter of fact,  that he was looking* at the square.  The French gunners would be ua-  Uistgrbed.  "I saw ,a humorous instance of the  efficiency of the  scene painters only  recently.    I    was    motoring along a  road  on  the  French  front,  not  only  within range of the German guns, but  in full    view  of the Germans,    who  were probably not    more    than    two  and a half milgs awajr.    Between the  road    and the    Germans, the French  scene painters had erected a canvas  screen    about twelve feet   high, held  erect   with   bamboo   poles.     On    the  screen   was   painted  a  perfect  representation of an empty road with poplars  growing by the  side.    The  Ger-  j mans   could   sec   th������ canvas through  I their  glass,    and    it  would  seem to  j theni as nothing more than an emp-  i ty road,    useless*, to shell.    Screened  j by the canvas,  thousands  of  French  I soldiers   marched    along,     invisible.  I The   French   had  even  carried  their  j efficiency so far,"  Mr.  Powell added  j laughing,  "as    to  establish  watering  j carts at intervals to keep down the  | dust  thrown up  by the men  on the  j march for fear the    Germans should  J see.  it and  discover they were being  ��������� deceived.

O. F. Hayes, Owner and Editor.  CRESTON,  B.C., FRIDAY, FEB. 18  Haulage Charges  living in times of worldwide stress  of this sort too readily recalls the  lines "When the devil was sick, the  devil a monk w<uld be;  but  when  citizens will. In seeing to it that  the community, which is,indirectly,  yourself, advances in rightdir eotions  the imoortance of the  board must  the devil got well, devil the  monk not be overlooked,   either   in   your  was he," to be taken too seriously,  situated as is Britain in the present  conflict.  Safety First  Cranbrook is still banging   away  at the creamery problem.    Having,  apparently, lined up a butter maker  who is willing to handle   the   business if factory, equipment   and the  minimum cream supply is provided,  a committee of those  interested   is '  now out solicting funds to    put   in  the plant, while others are   ''feeling  out" the country from Grows Nest  to the Landing as to the cow supply  ���������Dr.  Rutledge vouching for   300  dairy animals in the Creston Valley.  Amongst the data   supplied is a  schedule   of   charges   for   express  shipments   of   cream.    On   cream  going from Creston or other Valley  points, the rates are:    5-gallon can,  35 cents: 8-gallon   can,    40   cents;  10-gaiion can.   50   cents,    with   a  return charge of  5 cents   per   can.  There is no reduction on smaller or  partially-tilled   cans���������that   is    two, ,. . ,  ,. ,, .,, ,      , , ��������� carrving more politics to the square  hve-gallon cans will not be charged ;.     1 -   ^w ^L       n ^    _    A_  at the rate of ons ten-gallon can.

Not being a dairyman we are  unable to express an opinion as to  whether it were more profitable to  do dairying under present conditions or to ship cream out at a  charge of five cents per gallon. It  is assumed, of course, that patrons  will be furnished free the cans  necessary for shipment.  Hather contrary to general  expectations the Bowser government will not attempt to elect the  three new cabinet ministers en bloc.  Instead the favorite "safety first"  policy will be pursued and the  political pulse of Rossland will be  tested out in Hon. Lome Campbell's  behalf on February 26th.  Unconsciously, of course, the  premier has endorsed The llKV iew's  prediction that Rossland was the  safest of the three seats to be  contested, and given a favorable  decision tliere the sledding for  Messrs. Tisdall and Flummerfelt  should be somewhat easier���������and in  Mr. Tisdall's case, at least, every  little bit helps.  With so much at stake for both  parties and so few days for campaigning,   Rossland   is   just   now  personal or the general weal.  Membership is open to all, and a  glance over the officers and executive should convince that do-  liberations and actions are along  democrat ie linos.  In passing., a word of commendation   is   due   President   Reid    and  Secretary Henderson.     During two  iione-enoouaaging years they rendered the board, and tiie community,  much unselfish pulv.ic service���������and  haye  buckled  on   the harness  for  another term's   work.    Their  con-  iideneein and willingness to  serve  the Valley in this  capacity should  prove an inspiration   to  the  rank  and file of the board  members,   as  well as to many not on the roll, as  to the worthiness of the cause they  champion.  A NEW sur.  _  fe_^  CNPBING IS NOT so very far off and the question of  clothes for  Spring and Summer wear should be  inch than any other B.C. centre  ��������� has ever been favored with.

If this is merely a catch phrase  to lure Cranbrook's solidly patriotic  citizen population to gatherings for  the deepening of the townspeople's  spiritual life we would not care to  say the end does not justify the  means���������in Cranbrook. In Creston, however, we hope no such  deception will be practised.  And we uso the word deception  ���������idvi.s_.dly. Ever .since hostilities  commenced pulpit, press and evei*5'  other agency of tho sort havo never  faltered in thoir assurances that  Britain fights for the right. In  the face of theso gnarantoos and  believing "That he is thrice armed  who hath hin quarrel just," this  elairion cull to "got right with  (lod" if wo would have tho Allies'  cause triumph rather detracts from  the sincerity manifest- in clerical  utterances hitherto.

By centralizing efforts on Rossland the government, which is  usually bestsupplied with campaign  help, will shade the opposition to  some extent. At the same time  the situation leaves the Bowser  forces open to the charge of being  so fearful of public opinion as to  find it advisable to throw all their  reinforcements into single-constituency campaigns rather than  risk spreading them over even  three fronts. In politics, as in  other contests, the public likes a  game lighter: in fact they are liable  to resent even the appearance of  stacked cards.  All of which further deepens  interest in the contest, whioh will  also demonstrate whether the  hitherto-prevailing custom of filling vacancies of this sort at one  and the same time or by single  combat is best politics.

[Continued from Page 1  they had no other source of income  nor the chance of getting it.  Yet- oranges were no cheaper for the  consumer.  They were cheap on the ranch; dirt  cheap; so cheap that to pick theni was  unprofitable. But the householder  paid no less for them; sometimes he  paid more.  There lay the marvelous land capable of producing oranges to feed the  world; there was tfce world, eager to  get the unequaled California orange;  and between were the manipulators  grabbing huge profits and the railroad  gouging huge tolls, until the producer  was ruined and the consumer was  robbed.  Unless the orange business was to  come to an end in California, conditions like these could not continue,  Ineyitably the growers were driven  to unite in the common defense. This  is always a difficult thing to accomplish in America: the Lqrd knows  why. Bankers easily form their State  and National Associations. Lawyers  are organized and so are doctors.  Commission men have their unions  and grain, men their Chambers of  Commerce and Boards of Trsde_ All  men can unite readily enough except  the men that carry all the rest on  their backs.  This is a wonderful matter and nobody is able to explain it. Nothing  of the kind exists in other countries.  Tn Europe Co-operation among producers may almost be said to be the  rule;   farmers  produce   and   market  co-operatively, consumers purchase  cooperatively, and incalculable sayings result to both.

It was so here. At last a meeting  of orange growers was called for  October 24, 1885, at Los Angeles. It  recognized the bleak fact that unless  some united action could be had to  secure better market conditions, most  of the growers stood to lose their  homes. The sessions lasted-mornings,  afternoons and nights for several days,  and ont of them came the Orange  Growers' Proteotiv* Union, the first  of the kind in America.  It was not co-operative. In 1885 we  had not been cured of our original  gun-shyness about the word. Cooperation was a foreign term that  stood for a foreign thing, and we looked with deep suspicion upon the importation. Good old America competition was good enough for us���������  modified, of course, by agreements  and some attempts at a common  understanding, but still the grand old  principle.  The main purpose of the Orange  Growers' Union was to fix minimum  prices, and for the first year it worked  very well. But the commission men  rallied after that and supplied the useful tactics by which they have beaten  to pieces in California almost every  producer's organization that was not  co-operative. That is to say, thoy  went among the members of the Union  and with alluring offers of high prices  tempted them ontsido.  As soon as the Union was broken in  any region down went tho prices again  and tho old conditions returned���������to  the piulit Of tlio manipulators and the  ruin of the mortgaged rancher.  That put tho Union out of business,  and after a year or two it dried up  and blow nway.  For tho next two or three years tho  manipulators had everything exactly  to tholr tasto.

Their local associations were small  and weak, but they brought home the  bacon. They kept the fingers of the  manipulators from the throats of the  producers and secured something like  a fair return for orange raising.  One grower down there named T.  H. B. Chamberlain was a pioneer  among the farsighted, so that his  name is held in affectionate recollection by thousands that have been  benefited by his unselfish labors. He  started to amalgamate all the small  local associations and all the oth<*-f  growers into one union on a purely  co-operative basis. A mass meeting  held at Los Angeles, August 29,1893,  launched the beginning of his project.  As a result the local associations were  brought together in a compact that  all the fruit of their members should  be packed and marketed collectively,  the marketing to be done through an  executive committee composed of one  member from each district.  This shut out the manipulators. To  a great extent the only place now to  get oranges was through the executive committee, which held the  prices as nearly as possible to a just  return for the producers.  Two years of experiment showed that  this plan was good and sound, and the  j next step was to organize the Southern California Fruit Exchange to take  the place of the executive committee.  Orange growing is a clean, wholesome and attractive business. By this  time it had much increased in California.  The new plan of organization provided for a sub-exchange in each  region, composed of all the local associations thereabout, and then a  central exchange composed of the  fourteen sub-exchanges.  This is practically the present plan  of organization, although the name of  the central body was changed in 1905  to the California Fruit Growers' Ex-  ->-"������������������.������*_/>___    o-ffat*   t-iuTa    Viurl    Vim-tV   ori    nv_������  \ar*_.W-*������j'������----|    ���������.������.������. ������-.w*. ���������_.���������_-__. -w ___-������__ v������       wwa.-. _������__.       %.mmm  successful attempt to combine in the  marketing of oranges with producers  outside of the alliance.  Today 8,000 growers are united in  the 130 local associations, which are  together in seventeen sub-exchanges,  each of which sends one delegate to  the central exchange.  The 8,000 growers thus combined  were able to market co-operatively in  the year ending August 31, 1915,  29,809 carloads of oranges and lemons,  consisting of 9,537,85n boxes of oranges  and 2,341,553 boxes of lemons, valued  a.t the shipping point at $16,537,850 and  having a delivered value in the market  of about $30,000,000.

The   wonderful   stories     of     their  'amazing* heroism, coolness and  devo-  j tion   to  duty  are  told  in the  official  j phrases of the London Gazette.

The  last   timo   lie   led   all   that   remained,  consisting of ahout 50 men, in a most  gallant,   manner,   and   was   killed   at  their head.  It was mainly due to his bravery*,  untiring energy and spelndid leadership that the line at this point was  enabled to check the enemy's advance.  Capt.

His book, "The German Mole," shows  how Belgium was undermined.  Harmless looking German clerks,  backed by such bodies as the Hamburg Association for Business Clerks,  took jobs with Belgian concerns at  little or no pay, worked up, got hold,  and slanted everything toward Germany. Paid German' agitators stirred  up quarrels between the Flemings  and Wallons. German schools and  newspapers were planted to make  public opinion Teutonic. Belgium is  not alone in this, for ths same thing  was don������ in Russia, and the present  war is popular in Russia, because It  means the rooting out of German influence. We Americans are altogether too simple and easy about  these things, and we would do well  io ponder the conclusion proved hy  Belgium's*bitter experience:  "No country can with impunity  grant to Gerniaus the sams advantages it grants to oilier foreigners,  since Germans employ the advantages derived from hospitality for  ends that are hostile to the country  that grants them shelter."���������From Collier's.  ���������������_������������. t-f. i\~rf.ts.~. ���������_-!,_> ���������������������!.��������������������������� ���������������_������_._,- ! edge     with the utmost coolness  and  How_ to Develop the Highest Deftreo   dis-rogard   o������   flanger>   and   compelled  "Oli.  hop   s'.ie'Il   bo  .::r..o."

Snakes throw off their outer skin  once a year- Human beings change  their skin perhaps.nine times in a year;  that is, they have a new skin about' once  in six weeks.  The value of r a clean skin in maintaining health is not properly understood by the majority of people. Cleanliness is a part of health. You cannot be healthy unless you are clean,  not only externally, but also internally.  The blood should also be assisted  occasionally, like the skin, in throwing off poisons so that the system may  not get clogged and leave a weak spot  Tor disease germs to enter the system.  When the blood is clogged we suffer  from what is commonly called a cold.  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery purifies the blood and entirely  eradicates the poisons that breed ana  feed disease, lt thus cures scrofula,  eczema, boils, pimples and other eruptions that mar and scar the Bkin. Pure  blood is essential to good health. The  weak, run-down, debilitated condition  which bo many people experience is  commonly the effect, of impure blood.  Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery not. only cleanses the blood of  impurities, but 'it increases the activity  of the blood-making glands, and it enriches the body with an abundant supply  of pure, rich blood.  Take it as directed and it will search  out impure aftd poisonous matter in  the stomach, liver, bowels and kidneys  nnd drive it. from the system through  the natural channels.  It will penetrate into the joints and  mu_ei'-f*, and dissolve the poisonous accumulations, liad blood is driven out.

Germany's Vain Hope  From the very opening of the campaign���������certainly since the defeat on  the Marne and the failure ot Hinden-  trnrg to destroy the Russian armies  ���������the one hope of victory for Germany has lain in the break-up of the  coalition 'against her. ' The firmness  with which it has stood the shock of  war has been hitherto remarkable.  Neither the necessarily varying interests and objectives of the allied powers nor the heavy strokes dealt successively by Germany at Belgium and  France, at Russia and Serbia have  Leen able to shake in any degree eith-  sr the unity of aim or the conviction  of victory of the Entente.���������London  Daily News and Leader.  Some Facts That Prove ihe Good  fects of Prohibition  The good effects of local opition in  Canada are so wonderful that if they  were thoroughly understood, people  would rise in a great wave b������~x*ebel-  ion against the -enormous burden of  of the liquor traffic. We don't need  to depend on any man's say or the  statement of persons who might be  prejudiced. The last census report  1912 gives facts tliat would convince  any one whose mind is open to conviction.  That report gives tiie following  number of convictions for crime per  ten thousand population in each province. Prince Edward Island 1.1,  New Brunswick 3.8, Nova Scotia 14.8,  Ontario 25.5, Manitoba 27.9, Alberta  40.6, British Columbia 42.3. T^ese  figures show that Alberta and British Columbia, which had no local option, had nearly forty times as much  crime as Prince Edward Island, which  had no licenses, and over eleven  times as much erime as New Brunswick, our next driest province. More  notable still is the fact that the number of <Hji$ivk.tions for crime in each  province are in almost exactly inverse proportion to the amount ot  local option. The more local option  the less crime, the less local option  the more crime. Finally they prove  conclusively that the cause of nearly  all the crime is drink.  These are startling facts, but there  are many others which show what  fools and blind we have been to submit to be bossed by this tyrant that  defies all governments and has shown  its willingness to sell the country to  the Germans rather than give up  , their gains.  Few seem to understand the immense burden of taxation that is  imposed on us by this brutal business. It has recently been shown  that* the taxes collected in the nine  wettest States are sixty per cent,  higher than in the eight prohibition  States. Think of it, sixty per cent,  of the taxes going to produce more  poverty and crime. Suppose we say  that in Canada it is only half of that,  why do we submit to it? In 1912  it was shown that the liquor traffic  cost the country nine times as much  as the revenue received from the business and although they had been  freely published no one has attempted to deny the figui*es. In several  places it has been shown that the  criminals, paupers, and orphans caused by the liquor traffic cost five times  as much as the revenue received  from  the business.  We would respectfully urge that  active measures be taken without delay to spread the truth and so counteract the flood of falsehoods being  spread by the liquor traffic.

Effgs Will Be Dear  Labor Income in Minnesota  of  a  Larger     Profits     From  the   Farm  More   Than   Average   Size  The best measure of the size of  farm's business is the number of  hours of man and horse labor annually expended. A unit of labor consists  of ten 'hours of man labor or twenty  hours of horse labor. Labor income  is the amount of the farm produce  used by his household, and of farm  expenses and interest on the investment at five per cent.  Prom records taken, from 400 farms  in Rice county, Minnesota, it appears  that farms with tess than 200 unitsJ,r~  of labor annually gave a labor income  of $97; farms with from 400 to 600  units of labor gave a labor income  of $267; and farms with more than  1,000 units of labor gave a labor income of $605.  The efficiency of man labor is even  more important than the amount of  time expended. Tho labor income  gradually increased from $5, where  the hours of each man for a yeai  were 1,500 or less, to $638, where the  hours of each man were more than  3,500 each year.  All of which indicates that a farm  business of more than average size  gives opportunity for high efficiency  of man and horse labor, and a farm  business of more than average size  coupled with high labor efficiency  brings profits in farming.

E������ERYT  When a mother detects from the  v.Tithiugs and fretting of a child that  worms are troubling it, she can procure no better remedy than Miller's  Worm Powders, which are guaranteed  to totally expel worms from the system. They may cause vomiting, but  this need cause no anxiety, because  it is but a manifestation of their thorough work. No worms- can long exist  where these Powders are used.  Asthma Victims. The man or woman subject to asthma is indeed a  victim. What can be more terrifying  than to suddenly be seized with paroxysms of choking which seem to fairly threaten the existence of life itself. From such a condition Dr. J. D.  Kellogg's Asthma Remedy has  brought many to completely restored  health and happiness. It is known  and prized in every section of this  broad land.  Great Opportunity for Development of  the  Egg Market in Canada  For the first time in a number of  years eggs have taken a prominent  place in Canada's export trade. This  is largely due to the unprecedented  demand for eggs on the part of the  British market and the fact that  British dealers have shown a marked  preference for Canadian eggs over  United States eggs and a willingness  to pay a distinctly higher price for  them.  So great, in fact, has been the demand that Canadian dealers have  shipped practically all of the available Canadian storage product to the  old country. As a result, there is not  in Canada at the present time sufficient eggs in storage to supply home  consumption until * i'resii receipts in  appreciable quantities begin to come  in.  Quantities of eggs from the United  States, however, are being imported  into Canada, some in bond for export,  but the larger part to take the jilace  of the Canadian product exported.  On account of the keen demand for  Canadian eggs iabove mentioned.  United States eggs can be laid down  in Canada at the present time, duty  paid, at several cents per dozen less  than the price at which Canadian  eggs are selling for the export, and  they should be procurable, by the  consumers accordingly.  On the other hand, the Canadian  market at the present time is very  linn for Canadian "specials" (new-  laid) the production of which is not  enough in most instances to supply  the demand at local country markets.  This means that high prices will have  be paid in consuming centres in  order to draw a portion of these supplies from local points. Producers  may therefore definitely expect reasonably {high prices during the period  of low production for fresh gathered  eggs that will grade "specials."  The question has been raised as to  whether the phenomenal demand en  the part of the British market for  Canadian eggs will continue. This  depends entirely upon the quality of  Canadian eggs exported. Canada has  tremendous possibilities as an egg-  producing country. The poultry industry is at present but a mere fraction of what it might be. It remains,  therefore, for those most interested in  the development of his trade to  make the best possible use of their  present opportunities, asd by careful  supervision of -the quality of Canadian eggs going forward to pave the  way for an extensive and profitable  export trade in  the  future.���������Toronto  nln-lio  Constipation  Vanishes Forever  Prem** RsHsf^Pstxisizzi-ml Care  CARTER'S LITTLE  LSVERPSLLS sever  fail.
