It  t'J  I '  4  TH"  BV  r*  I  *vs  m>\  I  ill  r  Pleases Audience  Nothing in the way of a local-talent  show within the past couple of years  has scored quite the success that attended the efforts of the Presbyterian  ladies in the presentation of the one-  act comedy "An Oldtime Ladies' Aid  Business Meeting," which was staged  in Mercantile Hall on Tuesday night.  The title of the play is sufficient to  eonvey a truer conception of the drift  of the play than we have space for, ox-  ability to set down in words. Likewise, the cast is too extensive for us  to attempt to commend, individually,  the work of all taking part. Suffice  it to say that all were equally capable  and that those responsible for assigning the different parts were most  happy in the choice of the ladies to  portray them. "Mrs. Green's" parlor,  in which the comedy was enacted was  possibly a bit to cityfied for a gathering of this sort. The costumes, or  ���������some of them, while sufficiently of the  \-before-the-war" school, to add spice  to this feature, were not overdone in  that respect, and certainly added more  than a little to the all round enjoya-  bility of' the evening. The cast of  characters follows:  Mrs. Green, hostess Miss Dow-  Mrs. BeLoyd Fitz-Hammond and  Airs Kindly,   Bostonians,   Mrs   i Reid and Mrs Lidgate  Mrs Smith, President. Mrs Dow  Mrs Gray Miss Margaret Webster  !t������--.~   T*&..��������� Ttff~.~     f~m..X...,   imxxB xsay���������.   xtxia   \j&tt\va.y  Miss Harpe.���������.���������  Mrs Boyd  Mrs Jones.

Stark  scored with o banjo solo, while Miss  EilaDow's vocal nurirber,"Come, Sing  to Me," was equally well received. At  the close of the ladies aid session the  hostess had some entertainment for  her Boston friends, among which was  the recitation, "And he worried about  it," dene in capital style by Mrs. Winkler (nee Gilpin), and the closing feature  of this part, "Silver Threads Among  the Gold," by Mrs. Rose and the aid,  another popular feature.  Through The Review   the  ladies  wish to express their appreciation for  the splendid attendance, the proceeds  being in excess of $50.  could be had any where. We hear that  the appropriation is almost exhausted  but the work will be^continued.  A. E.

The Doukhobors have purchased the  donkey engine from the Company and  are now moving it to the Canyon Siding to be shipped to Brilliant. It was  pur-chased about seven years ago for  pulling stumps-and decking logs at the  landing.  Mr. Wood, on Monday afternoon,  received a telegram from Ottawa saying that John was reported among the  missing, and the news was promptly  transmitted to his father at Nelson.  If John was captured we feel sure he  made good his promise, made just  prior to going into the trenches, that  if given half a chance he wordd do his  little "bit" and scrap like a bear.  <&B&*mms������  was   a  is  Birth���������On April 29th, to Mr, and  Mrs. Thos.

C:. the point of being assured of  goods true to grade Mr. Jackson was  very emphatic. "We wish to state in  order that we may have a fair opportunity to obtain the best results in the  way of returns you must apply a  system of inspection in order that  your shipments will be equal to the  standard going forward from the  Okanagan. We would suggest a man  who could both inspect and look after  your Wrrehouse generally, He should  be an all-round man who understands  th* requirements of the trade."  At the close of the meeting very  hearty votes of thanks were teudered  Messrs. Jackson and Campbell for  their addresses, and after those present  had discussed the matter it appealed  so favorably to all in attendance that  the Union directors were authorized  to confer with the O.U.G. representative and secure the best possible agreement, and submit the same to a shareholders meeting to be held not later  than May 6th.  The full board of directors met  Mr. Jackson in conference that same  evening, when an agreement- as out-  linee above was drafted, and a meet-  Iniv to accent or reject the agreement  is called for this Thursday  May 4th, in the Auditorium.

Mrs. Cherrington, treasurer, had  quite an agreeable surprise for the  Red Cross Auxiliary members at their  business meeting on Tuesday, as per  her budget covering financial operations of late. At May 1st the Auxiliary had real money on hand to the  extent of $143.92, the chief contributory causes being the Easter Monday  dance $77.65, the Duperry yiolin raffle  $23.25, and the Misses Cartwright-  Snyder tea, candy and flower sale  $23.  This credit balance was altogether  too pretentious for an organization of  this sort so it was finally decided to  disburse the major portion of it as  follows: $25 will be forwarded the  Overseas Club tobacco fund. $25  more will go to the Duchess of Con-  naught Hospital at Ciivedon, being the  annual upkeep charge for the Creston  cot with which the. institution is  blessed.

For an afternoon nreeting, in a busy  season such as the, present, the conference on Thursday afternoon of last  week, betweed E. F. Jackson, sales  manager for the Okanagan United  Growers, and the ranchers of the  Creston Valley was exceptionally well  attended.  In addition to those from the Creston section, several were here from  Wynndel, as welljas J. J. Campbell of  Willow Point, ^d H. Smith and J.  Couplahd of Boswel./ W. V. Jackson,  president of the Creston Union, occupied the chair.  The first speaker was Mr. Campbell  of Willow Point, who stated tha.t seeing the proposed Kootenay-Boundary  selling agency scheme was doomed to  failure, the Okanagan United Growers had been communicated with to  see if some selling arrangement could  not be entered into with them. The  proposition had appealed so strongly  to Willow Point, BosweTf, Wynndel  aud some other centres that naturally  it was concluded Creston might be  interested, hence the call to conference  which had beerr sent out by O. J.  Wigen of the Oo-Operative Fruit  Growers Association of Wynndel.  After generally dealing with the  advantages that would accrue generally with the closer or unanimous  working together of all or most of the  fruit selling agencies, Mr. Jackson,  who was the next speaker, went into  the details of the proposition the O.U.  G. would enter into to sell the produce of the Creston Fruit Growers  Union for 1010. In ii general way the  proposed agreement is after this  fashion :  The agreement shall be effective  from May 15 to December31, 1010, and  the territory guaranteed for selling in  is Manitoba, Saskatchewan. Alberta,  and that portion of the Crow's Nest  lino east of Cranbrook, and other  territory the local union wishes to  concede, with the exception of export  and purely local trade.  Commissions to ho paid the O.U.G.  will ho fl per cent, on actual amount  of Invoice, less value of any allowances  on all shipments by express or freight  in less than car lots. And 4 per cent,  on all shipments in carloads,  whether  !|VijtMn������fjfl#  Mrs. M. Hagen was a Creston caller  on Monday.   S.  the same dav.  Moon  visited Sirdar  Q11inT\1lOC!

All interested are reminded that the  depot is open.every Tuesday to receive  and give out work, and that there is  an unlimited demand for old linen and  sox-in particular. The casualties to  the Canadian troops are very heavy  right now and with an ever-increasing  number of our troops going to ihe  front a 40 per cent, increase in Red  Cross supplies will not be a bit too  much to provide for the more pressing needs.

Interesting  Report Just  Issued by the  Commission of Conservation  According to press reports. Sweden  proposes to cut off the export, of chenr-  | ical  pulp  to ("Jrout   Britain.   Naturally,  ! all   eyes   nre   immediately   turned   to  Canada to supply the threatened deficiency.

As the scornful maiden went out ol'  the iloor under the escort of Cassidy,  Burke bowed gallantly to her lithe  back and blew a kiss from his thick  finger tips in mocking reverence for  hor as an artist in her way.

After describing his jorrrney through  a. large district from Petrograd and  tbe new spirit of thoroughness that  has arisen among the various officials  with whom a traveller comes in contact, as well as the military authorities, tho correspondent turns to the  refugee problem.  "There are said tc be, on reliable  authority, some 600,000 refugees in  Petrograd, which number does not, of  course, include the German and Austrian subjects, who, in the first months  of the war, from their homes in the  Baltic provinces and along the Russo-  German frontiers, were#sent to points  in the interior of Russia" The present  refugees are Russian subjects, who  were living in the regions invaded last  autumn by the Germans, or in places  so exposed to attack that the Russian  authorities ordered them to leave for  the sake of safety.  "The groat majority of the fugitives  fled, naturally, to Moscow and Petrograd and other large cities, where they  eould feel fairly safe, and every hotel,  lodging or boardiug house is full to  overflowing and people are sleeping iu  bathrooms, even in the large Petrograd hotels. Private families have  opened their doors to their relatives  and friends with the usual boundless  Russian hospitality, and have cheerfully inconvenienced themselves for  months."

Germany's Great  Mistake  Germany   never  believed     that  the  "Dominions would  raUy to the side of  Great Britain as  they have done, or  that they would be faithful in the hour  of adversity.    There were even some  of  our  own   publicists   at   home   who  | shared the same profound miscalcula-  i tions.    The doubters were much more  | in evidence in the old country than in  j the Dominions, and attributed it to the  j lack of knowledge  by people here of  j their   own   empire.     Possibly   ir.   was  | due   in   even   greater   measure. to   a  j failure to realize the incredible power  i of sentiment when really great enier-  ' g-encies  arise.    Blood is thicker than  water, and, after all, there had- been  no doubt in the mind of the Dominions as to what Germany's intentions  were during all those years when half  our British  politicians  were trying to  persuade   themselves.   \n   defiance   of  all the evidence,  that she meant the  British empire no harm.���������London Telegraph.  quite i help  Aunt���������Willie,  ine freeze  to  don't   you   want  the ice  cream? j  Willis���������Nav!

As  the late P. T. Barnum has said, "You  can fool all the people, once, and some  of the. people all the time, but you  can't fool all the people all the time,"  and at present the independent elector-ate is not in tho humor for- any  tricks of this sort.  This is a fight where the candidates  must stand solely on their merit, and  the record of the party under whose  auspices they are running ; efforts to  attract support cin deliberate misstatement of facts of this sort are more  than likely to work out to the disadvantage of those responsible for their  manufacture and circulation than they  are to harm the cause of the candidate  at whom they are so maliciously  directed.  Thanking you for space, Mr. Editor,  and hoping the. columns of you always  worth while paper will be available  for making straight these crooked  way of some of the politicians,  J. F. Hohk.  I venture to think, sir, that the  causp of these evils is inherent in the  nature of man and that it will operate  under any systenr which may be introduced or may evolye itself. For  in what does man differ from the  beasts that perish ? the law of whose  existence is the lextalions, that he  shall take who has the power, and he  shall keep who can.  You may say th-^t he djjjers in the  possession of intelligence,^^ there is  a diit'erence of degree, not of kind.  Mental capacity has no moral quality  ���������it is not immoral-, it is just unmoral.  "Education, we are told, is the sure way  to regenerate mankind, but education  has no moral quality. If you educate  a boy or man of evil tendencies you  make him a more potent force for  wrongdoing.  Environment   is     another   remedy-  that is offered for our consideration,  but if you place a selfish man in good  surrounding he will take advantage  of them to work his own end regardless of the suffering he nray occasion  his fellows. Man was created or  evolved from the lower form of life  and as a mere animal was the last  word in creation. But there Was  something giyen to man which was  not bestowed upon the rest of the  animal creation and which diiferenti-  ated him from them. To use the bible  metaphor, "God breathed into his  nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul." .That is to say,  he was brought into direct- living relationship and correspondence with  the Eternal. This gift has been lost  and man has become a mere animal.  You nray ask,  sir,   why 1 put any  credence in  sirch a fairy tale.    Well,  one reason is that I..find the Genetic  account of the creation to;be so exactly iu agreement with the latest  achievements in the fields of scientilic  deduction on the subject. And another reason is that it so tills the bill,  as it wer-e, in other ways.  His intellect, or it may be some  subconcious glimmering of what he  might have been, kept Irim groping  about and trying to fashion some  means of bringing about a right  standing of life and" conduct. But,  alas, always foredoomed to failure,  for the cause lay in 'himself,* And  until the deep-seated- disease is eradicated and man accepts the offer of  the resurrection of his soul whirls  Christ rnakes to him there can be no  kingdom of heaven upon' earth.

The arteries of the human body may be likened to small rubber pipes, whieh go  everywhere through the body and carry blood to the hands and i'eet, as well as to the  nerves, muscles and vital, organs.    They carry all the blood in the human system, and  it" this blood is hurdoned with the poisons left over "when  the liver und kidneys are not properly performing their  filtering work, these poisons form a deposit on the inside  walls of the arteries.  The deposit  thus formed gradually thickens  and  hardens the walls of the arteries.   The tiny-blood vessels  of the liver are aft-ected, and thence comes that fatal  disease���������cirrhosis of the liver.   The cells of the kidneys  become   starved   for  want   of  blood,   aud  Bright's disease gets its star_t.  In health the arteries have the elasticity  of rubber, and expand, contract or elongate, as required hy the demands of the  blood pressure. Hardened, the arteries  are like so much brittle rubber tubing.  The blood pressure comes on, the tubing  hursts, and the resulting blood elot on tho  brain causes apoplexy.  Jt will he plainly seen that lhe  cause of trouble is in the inelVieient  condition oMIto liver and Icidneys.  When 1hcse liltering organs are  kept healthy and active, and the  howels regular in the removal ol!  waste uuvtier, tbere is uo elnniee  for Hindi dreadful conditions as  hardening ol' the arteries bring  about.

Her crops returned over  $400,000,000 and her industries over  5500,000,000. Her exports to the United States in one year increased ?100,-  625,368, and her imports decreased  $74,504,604.  "These astounding figures in themselves demonstrate to what an extent  Canada is coming into her own. Canada has built on firm foundations.  Her bank deposits during ISI5 increased  over $86,000,000.  "Important as lier industrial growth  has proved to be, the Dominion did  not neglect her rich farm territories,  knowing that upon their development  depends her growth. No country wrote  a brighter page of history in agriculture in 1915 than Canada, but an extraordinary combination of circumstances, 'the like of which the American continent may never see again, is  partly responsible lor her success.  She was called upon to supply foodstuffs for Great Britain, her allies, and  for her soldiers at the front, and the  necessity brought corresponding ef-  ' fort. Slie has a new and fertile soil,  and the weather conditions of the  year were ideal. Her government's  policy ol encouraging the raising of  choice grain    was  never more  effec-  4-i-trt*  .. "This combination gave the Dominion farmer a consummation of his  dreams, "Two in one yield." Nearly a  billion bushels" of grain were produced, and, of this, 336,25S,000 were in  wheat. Alberta, Saskatchewan, and  Manitoba grew 304,200,000 bushels, the  remaining 32,$58,000 bushels coming  from British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and the maritime provinces. The  farms of Alberta averaged 36.16 bushels per acre, those of Saskatchewan  28.75 and those of Manitoba 28.50.  "This great harvest brought money  to the prairie provinces, and brought  it with a rush? Up to November 21  the Canadian West received 2132,000,-  000 for its consignment of wheat.  "Canada's present prosperity, however, does not depend only on its land.  She is working overtime in her factories and mines. At the time of the  outbreak of tbe war a small arsenal at  Quebec, employing 300 men, was the  only plant engaged in the making of  war munitions in all the Dominion of  Canada. Today, according to D. A.  Thomas, envoy of the British minister  of munitions, 100 villages, towns and  cities throughout the Dominion  engaged in the making of war  plies."

Many  wells are so constructed as to allow  surface water to find its way around  tin tops, "while in others, particularly  dug wells, it seeps in through the  brick lining near tbe top. Where there  is any danger of this pollution it is a  measure of safety to boil the water before it is used for human consumption.

The water supply on the farm is r.l-  ways   an   important   matter,   and  loo  much care cannot be taken in its location .and  protection.   , The   farm  well  should  be  placed  where  the  surface  drainage from all possible sources of  contamination is away from the well.  If possible, it. is advisable to provide  impervious   floors     with     watertight  drains   for  farm  buildings   and  stock  pens.   Under the same conditions concrete manure pits might well be provided not only to prevent the liquid  manure from  polluting the  neighboring soil but to save the manure. No  garbage,   manure   or   rubbish should  be   dumped   into   sinks   or  basins   in  the immediate neighborhood, and such  basins should be fenced off and kept  free-from pollutiug matter. The house  should  be  provided  with     some  safe  method of sewage disposal, while slops  and garbage from the kitchen should  be   deposited   in  tightly  covered  garbage cans and disposed of by burying  in  the  fields,  burning,  etc.     The  use  of privy vaults and leaching or overflowing cesspools should also be absolutely  avoided, as they are  likely  to  be sources of the worst contamination.

Ih Nova Scotia  there were nine, in New Brunswick  19, while in Quebec, there were 200  farms visited and out of this number there were none following a short  rotation, but the majority of them  left the land in hay and pasture for  from six to eight years, after which  would  break it  up  and  rested  to    grass and clover.

Bennett, and  the consulting engineer, Mr. E. L.  Cousins. Under them there has been  an expert working staff, preparing the  detailed plans of improvement and a  comprehensive survey of Ottawa and  its environments.  The commission strongly recommends that nothing of the elaborate  nature suggested should be attempted  without first establishing a federal  district and securing for the federal  authorities adequate control of local  government, as has been done at  Washington. The proposed federal  district should extend from Chats  Falls, at the head of Lake Deschenes,  some thirty miles east of Ottawa, to  about four miles east of the present  city limits, and about ten miles north  and south from - Parliament Hill.  Another main proposal is'the establishment of a national park or  forest reserve in the Laurentian Hills  and on the slopes on the north side  of the Ottawa River. Ait area of  from 75,000 to 100,000 acres, the report says, can be secured at comparatively small cost, .which could be  ��������� preserved for all time to the people  of Canada, and, which would afford  an excellent fish and game preserve  within a very few miies of the capital  for all vears to come.

Every year there is u com phi int. regarding tho difficulty in securing u  ent.eli of clover and grass. This Is  due, it, is claimed, to tho small  nmount, of seed sown per acre. On  Prlm-e Edward Island the amount of  clover seed sown per aero is only two  pounds; in Quebec, it ia three  pounds; while In oilier provinces If  is more, hut even where the average  amount sown is largest, It in found  to ho only about half of what it  should ho to secure results.

Not since the great cycle boom a  quarter of a century ago have British  inventors made more money on patented devices than during the present  war.  One  of  the  fortunate  inventors  of  the modern hand grenade, used so effectively in the allied trenches, is reported to have netted upward of seven  hundred thousand dollars in royalties.  The inventor of the Gardwell machine  gun iB reputed to be richer by three  thousand dollars, in addition lo a royalty of fifteen dollars per gun manufactured.    The ingenious designer of  the "Bors" periscope trench rifle, with  which  the  Australians  arc  equipped,  has received a large sum for his patent  rights.   A life-saving appliance in gas  attacks     brought   its   owners., order-*  valued at two' hundred thousand dollars.     Numerous   patents   have   been  takon out for adapting and simplifying  existing machinery for the  manufacture of munitions and other articles.  The  majority  of  the  successful   war  inventions   wero   put   to   commercial  use   beforo   submitting them   to   the  government.    For instance, a special  box  for carrying hand  grenades  can  bo used l'or other purposes when Ihe  war is over, and tho inventor already  has laid tho  foundations for a most  lucrative business,    some of the most  striking inventions aro a non-inflammable substitute for celluloid, a substitute l'or glass, a process for treating  municipal refuse, removing the solder,  tin and chemicals from scrap, tinned  and galvanized articles, and for utilizing the haRc metal.

They quote statements favorable  to the use of alcohol, said to have  been made by eminent physiologists at  a convention in Cambridge; among  those present was the celebrated Dr.  M\ Michael Foster. They didn't tell us  '1r1 that that was long years ago, for Dr.  Foster was a distinguished man, advanced in years when I was a student.  I doubt if they can point to one single  book on medical practice published in  the last ten years that does not definitely teach that alcoholic liquors  i iiici'easy the liability io disease, especially consumption. Even the hand  book prepared by military doctors in  1911 for tbe guidance of the Royal  Army Medical Corp teaches that, and  also that it lessens tbe efficiency of  the men and increases the tendency  to disease, and advises that it be not  permitted on the march.  7. They say .that the drunkard is  the prohibitionists' only asset. Oh, no,  not by any means; Ave have many serious charges against the liquor traffic of which I shall mention only one.  The taxes actually collected in the  nine wettest states' in 1914 were 60%  higher than in the eight prohibition  states. Why should I be taxed to  care for the paupers, orphans and  criminals that they make? The license fees do not pay a quarter of the  expenses they cause.  8. They say that domestic unhappi-  ness frequently causes drunkenness,  instead of drunkenness causing domes-  tie unhappihess. Isn't that gall? If  that be true how- is it that in Canada  the provinces that have most local  prohibition have the least crime and  the provinces that have least iocai  prohibition have nearly forty times  as much crime as Prince Edward Island, which is entirely under prohibition ? ]  9.

Farther up the line a machine gun  was just beginning to get dangerous when a well directed bomb sent  it. into space. Hand-to-hand, the  Canadians exacted a heavy toll. They  carried everything bsfore them, and  at the end could go no farther, as a  heap of dead bodies and demolished  trench barred 'the way.  The return journey to the British  trenches had to be made across a  bullet-swept area. One man was  dragging back the body of.a comrade, while another was supporting  a wounded companion. The Canadians halted for an instant while a  bomb was thrown. It was "the luckiest shot of the whole night. It fell  right on the machine gun which was  most dangerous, silencing it.
