In acceding to the wishes of his  many supporters in this matter it can  be truly said it is a case of the honor  seeding tue man. not tue man going  after the honor. Of his own accord  Sob is about the very last man in the  Valley to seek preferment of this sort,  but the desirability of his taking the  field has been so persistently and convincingly put before him that he can  hardly help but feel that to refuse" to  offer for public service at this time  Avould be unworthy of any citizen,  more especially one with his general  all-round popularity at this rather  critical period in the Conservative  party's history in this province.  Although there is not even a hint  going as to what Neil F. Mackay, the  sitting member for the" Kaslo constituency, proposes to do about seeking renomination. it is pretty generally felt that he will not be after the  friends are sure to be just as  workers as those nearer home-  The Liberal candidate, John Keen,  is again back to his usual good health,  arid only awaits an inkling as to when  polling day is to be start out on a  lighting campaign at \vhich game  he enjoys quite a favorable reputation.

It was announced from "Victoria  that Premier Bowser will make quite  a thorough tour of the province as  soon as the house closes. Should the  Kaslo convention be over arid Mr.  Long placed in nomination, it is almost certain Creston will be favored  with a visit from the premier.

T. Garland, an ex-raayor and president of the board of trade, Avould not  be averse to carrying the Conservative  standard, though the latter has not  been quite so bold as Mr. Anderson in  assuring the stalwarts of his ambitions in this respect.  There is also a Mr. Archer vvho. although feigning a "nothing doing"  air is said to be keeping a fair amount  of political steam up prepared to offer  as a compromise candidate in case  there should be any deadlock between  the Anderson and Garland forces, or  to bring home the bacon mayhap in a  three-cornered fight if prospects are  good of staying in the running on the  first ballot in a three-cornered elimination contest���������the backers of tho  candidate dropped on the first ballot  swinging around to him }n order to  head off their successful riyal of the  initial round (this, on the assumption  that an effort will be made at the  othor end to get together and submit  tlio name of but one gentleman from  that section to the riding nominating  convention.

The Cranbrook Creamery  j   TiFSu Or  May. Such is the good neiA's impart--,  ed to the Herald by Mr. H, A. Amer-  man, the manager, who is now located in the city. Mr. Amerman states  that the equipment has been ordered  and will be here in a shoit time, that  a good location is in sight, and that  everything looks good for the early  start and success of the creameay.���������  Herald.  Cranbrook has tackled the creamery  proposition in a thoroughly businesslike way for a yun'ug farming section  such as it is. The townspeople have  put up a considerable portion of the  necessary capital to get things going,  and are also arranging to help in -the  financing of the purchase of dairy-  cows by reputable ranchers all through  that section. In addition they appear  to have been able to secure a manager  and buttermaker who have enoisgl:  confidence in the industry and the  country from which it must draw its  cream supply as to be willing to take  on the management and operation of  the plant on terms that haye made  the starting of the creamery very  reasonable indeed for the shareholders.  H. A. Amerman, Avho Avill be in  charge of the plant, is.how out among  the dairy cow owners in the Cranbrook country talking up the project  and arranging with them  for an  all-  vaiiabie cow. He intends paying the  Creston Valley a visit on a similar  errand within afew days and is hoping  to be able to^arrange with as many of  our ,ra*nchers..as possible to ship their  cream to the .Cranbrook creamery.  As to what price he is prepared to pay  we are not adyised, but if it is at all  in proportion to the price at which .  creamery butter is now retailing it-  should be sufficiently attractive to induce a number to try out the possibilities of patronizing a creamery located even as far away as Cranbrook.  Mr. Amerman comes recommended as  a thoroughly practical creamery man  whose assurances in this line should  be well worth a tryout,- provided always the financial returns are somewhere near as atttactive as those ut.  prejsent obtained from home dairying.

The     room   was   plung  darkness.  There   was  absolute  silence  m  the  librarv -after the turning of the switch  that brought  darkness. Long seconds  passed, then  a little noise���������the  oC the passage door turning.  door swung open there  came  ing   breath   from   Mary,   for  she   saw  framed  in  the  faint  light  that came  from the single burner in the corridor  the slender form of her husband, Dick  Gilder.  The next instant he had stepped  within the room and Chicago Red had  pounced on his victim, the huge hand  clapped tight over the young man s  mouth. There came a sound of scuffling feet, and that was all. Finally  tho big man's voice came triumphantly:  "I've gol him:"  "It's Dick!"   The cry came as a wail  of despair from the girl.  At tho same moment (Jarson dashed  liis torch, and the light fell swiftly on  young Gilder, bowed to a kneeling posture  before  the  couch,  half  throttled  by   Chicago    Red.    close beside him,  Mary looked down in wordless despair  ovor this  final disaster of the  night.  Garson retired a step farther before  he spoke his command, so that, though  he  held  the  torch  still,  he, like  the  others was in shadow.  "Get away, Red."  The fellow let go his grip.  Freed   of   Uiat   strangling   embrace  Dick   stumbled   hlindly   to     his   feet.  Then, mechanically, his hand went to  the   lamp  on   the   table   back   of  the  couch.   When the mellow light streamed forth he uttered an ejaculation of  stark amazement, for liis gtize was riveted   on   the   face  of  the   woman  he  loved.  "Good '���������'od!" It was a cry of torture wrung from his soul of souls.  Mary swayed toward him a little,  palpitant with fear���������fear for herself,  for all of them, most oi' all for him.  "Hush, hush!

There are several reasons why  land intended for seed production  should be as free as possible from  weeds.  Weeds absorb soil moisture. an  abundance oi which is one ot the  essentials in the production of large  yfelds of grain. This is-particularly  true when speaking- of the western  provinces, for onr rainfall is somewhat limited, and we i eed it ail.  Without sufficient soil moisture the  plant will lack vigor, the straw will  be short, the ear under-sized and not  well filled, insufficient moisture will  also reduce the size of the kernel  and lessen its weight per bushel.  The amount of water absorbed  aiul given off by the leaves is somewhat remarkable. One authoriiy  says that one weed plant an inch in  diameter at the base, and having a  leaf surface of about 59 square feet,  has been known to transfer through  its leaves one pound four ounces of  water in 24 hours. Another writer  says an. average mustard plant  pumps from the soil about 14 ounces  of water per day, and a sunflower  may absorb {)',) ounces  in one  day.  Weeds injure the grain by crowding; all living plants must have a  certain amount of space for the circulation of air and moisture, and to  be open to the life-giving warmth  and light of the sun. When crowded,  even among themselves, they cannot  thrive, and if this needed space is. to  any extent occupied by weeds the  returns from the crop must be. correspondingly less. Weeds are notoriously mere resistent to drought,  more rapid ti growth, more sturdy  of habit and more tenacious of life  than the cultivated plants that they  shade, drown or starve out.  Adam Dickson, as long ago as 173*5,  said in. his treatise on agriculture:  "Weeds are nourished by the same  food that would ?*ourish useful  plants, and therefore when allowed  to grow along with them must rob  them of part of their food. Experience convinces the farmer of the  truth of this; for he finds that his  crop is bad in proportion to the  quantity and kinds of weeds with  which  his  land  is  infested."  Some weeds cerve as host plants,  for injurious fungi and rust,- smut  and mildew, may be transferred  from theni to useful plants. Weedy  stubbles are often a breeding ground  for cut worms, Jlea beetles and other  insect plagues.  Sheaves of grain containing any  considerable quantity of weeds are  difficult to cure, and are frequently  the cause of grain heating in the  stack, bin or elevator, thus seriously  injuring its germinating power.  Weeds mean extra labor in cleaning  the threshed grain, and in some instances it is almost impossible to  make a perfect separation with the  machines in common use. For instance, it is exceedingly difficult to  separate wild Oi'.ts from cultivated  oats, or chess and corkle from wheat.  Darnel is difficult to separate from  barley, etc.  I consider it extremely dangerous  to purchase seed grain from a  grower whose farm i3 generally full  of wepds, aven if. the particular field  from whicli the individual sample  was obtained is clean, for there hi  great dnnger ol' weed seeds becoming  mixed through the use of implements, machinery, etc.  Two incidents in my own exeprl-  ence will illustrate this point. In tho  autumn of 190G, I visited a farm in  thia province, where 1 understood tho  owner made a specially of growing  seed grain. I found one small pal eh  of ahout one-half acre which had  boen hand-picked and wus fairly  free of noxious weeds, but every  other Held on the i'nrm was practically smothered with noxious weeds.  It is needless to stuto that I did not  purchase any seed from that I'nrm,  Again, In r.H.R, wishing lo purchase  a largo quantify of seed grain for  Ihe federal government, I Inspected  tlio growing crop on a 2,000 aero  farm iu tho west.

Each Spring 200  Million  Are  Used  in  the United  States  It has been estimated by statisticians that more than 200 million small  clay marbles are used by the boys of  the United States every spring time.  It is a known fact that 12o' million  marbles are made every year by one  clay marble manufacturer whose plant.  is in Summit County, Ohio. And these  marbles are made or rolled by young  girls.  The marble manufacturer does not  devote all his attention to the manufacturing of the "game marble." There  are various uses to which the marble  is put, and as a matter of fact, the  size varies according to its intended  use. The Standard Oil Company is one  of the largest buyers of marbles, and  these are started in graded pipelines  to clean out the parafine which gathers on the side of the pipe as it flows  to the tanks.  Clay marbles are used also by the  manufacturer of rubber, ink and salt,  chemical and powder makers. Tliey  are used ale-*' in grinding the large  stones of the lithographer and by railway supply people. Puzzle box makers are also large buyers of marbles.  The sizes of the clay marbles as  made in the United States vary trom  nine-sixteenths of an inch in diameter,  which is the small "pill" the boys play  with, to one measuring sis inches in  diameter, or about the size of a small  cannon ball.���������Cleveland Plain Dealer.  jffSSSa^.

The chief of these complaints  would seem to be against the present system of colleating school  taxes and the necessitating of  trustees barrowing money on their  personal security to keep things  going in case taxes were slow in  coming in. It is felt that seeing  the government undertakes to do  the assessing and collecting if it  fails to gather- in enough to keep  the school financed it shouid at  least empower the trustees to  barrow on the security of the unpaid taxes, and not on a note that  renders trustees liable in person as  at present.  This is but one, of the evils on  whioh Satu day's gathering wns  agreed prompt redress is desirable.

The conference of Valley school  trustees, which was held iu the Creston school on Saturday afternoon  proved even a greater success than its  originators had a.nticipated. Every  school district excepting Alice Siding  was represented by one or more delegates, iho Huscroft school having aii  three trustees in attendance.  F. K. Hurry, chairman of the Creston school board, was chosen as chairman of the meeting, while C. F.  Hayes was selected secretary, and was  favored with a number of resolutions  to pass on to the education department for their serious consideration.  The most important matter was. to  get an expression of opinion from the  outside trustees as to what help might  be expected from them in case Creston  were to undertake the buiiding and  conduct of a full fledged high school.  Trustee Craigie of Erickson, Bathie of  "Wynndel, Pochin of Canyon City, and  Lyon of Huscroft's were quite outspoken in their endorsation of the project subject, of course, to an equitable  arrangement of the school's expense  and representation on the high school's  board of management. They also  urged that in view of their willingness  to support the high school the pupils  from their schools should be allowed  to attend the Creston public school  for their entrance class work without  charge to either parents or school  district, which point the Creston trustees are willing to concede.  In urging this concession Trustee  Craigie pointed out that at present  scholars attending rural schools almost invariably required two years to  get their entrancs certificate. This  was not due to the incompetency of  the teacher in most cases, as it was a  manifest impossibility for the average  teacher to handle all the classes from  the primary to the entrance, to say  nothing of controlling the. schalars,  and do any where near justice, to all  the classesand subjects taught. Some  of the trustees were also of the opinion  S +iu..������.    :������   4-U~    -,���������,!��������� ���������������������������-.���������   ~1~~~    ������������.).    U-,.3  UXXXXIX?

Were they able to take the  full high school course here on completing the Normal term they would  get a Second Grade certificate, which  i3 good for life.  The matter was finally disposed of  by a resolution of Messrs. Craigie and  Bathie���������That we assist Creston School  District in the matter of securing and  enninping a hi������rh school and paying  teacher's salary, provided they allow  pupils from assisting districts to take  the entrance class work at tbe Creston public school, and allow us representation on the board of trustees of  the said high school, subject to the  approval of the ratepayers at the  forthcoming annual school meeting.  Tho present system of financing  rural schools came in for considerable  criticism. Trustee Jackson thought it,  was timo a move was mado for united  action on the part of all tho rural  schools to have the government amend  the School Act so as to givo each district authority to collect its own school  taxes, or failing this provision should  bo mado that in case a loan had to Vie  obtained that such borrowing i-hould  bo on tho security of tho uncollected  taxes and not on tho personal security  of tho trustees as at present. Truuteo  Lyon favors going still further and  doing away with tho loan business,  simply putting it up to tho government to either collect tho taxes or bo  penaii/jud for i/iitm- i-uiui.tr lo ill) ao. hy  being com polled to advance tho money  whether the taxes woro paid or not.  Trustee Poohin ulao protostod against  tricts setting up a new high school,  both in the matter of equipping and  providing a school building, and the  allowancemade on the teachers salary.  When this Is- available along with  some other general inf omnia tion another conference will be called so that  the matter can vbe more intelligently  discussed, and some basis for apportioning the share' of the expence each  district shaii raise gone into thoroughly so that the ratepayers at tbe annual  meetings will have all the facts at  their disposal and thus be able to mako  a decision in the matter forthwith.  The outstanding features of the  gathering was the unanimity that  prevailed as to the necessity for the  high school, the willingness of aii  present to strain a point or two financially if need be to secure the school the  need for which is already apparent  ciHu suro vO nsCCGnie Tciore pressing sn  the-.-immediate future.

His  plan, backed, by the institute and its  important officials, . including Lord  Curzon, is to prevent the emigration  to foreign countries of soldiers and  their families al'tev the war, and to  direct steady streams of these war  veterans to the British colonies���������  South Africa, Australia, New Zealand";  Canada, and the many insular colonies  ���������thus recruiting the population with a  sturdy and intelligent class, and holding them within the British empire.  It is the latest phf.se of the imperial  movement, which seeks to bind together the Mother Country and the  oversea dominions into a vast confea-  eracy. ,  While he is one of the interesting  Jiterary figures of England, he is besides a justice of the peace of his  home town in Norfolk and a student  on land settlement, unemployment,  and agriculture, and this qualification  led to liis  choice as commissioner.  He will go first to South Africa, then  eastward to tho Straits Settlements,  Australia, New Zealand, and will be in  the United States and Canada next  (summer or fall, going from the Pacific  to the Atlantic  "I am going to inquire," said Sir  Rider, "into the possibilities of the  British empire, with reference to land  settlement and employment of ex-service men after the war. lt is obvious  that, during the turmoil and change of  conditions resulting'from so great a  ���������struggle, a large number of men will  become dissatisfied with their former  employment.  "I am going merely to inquire and  report and to���������form my own conclusions from what I see. That, I think',  is.a useful work, since it is foolish to  put off such investigations till the war  ends, when there would be great difficulty in dealing with the matter.

My   conclusions   will   be   eiu-  . bodied in my report to the Royal Colonial Institute, and perhaps in a book  on the landed and other resources of  the empire."    Referring to the class  of war veterans who would go out to  ���������replenish the colonial empire, Sir Rider said:   '"Such men as are being considered as  possible emigrants would,  of course, taken as a whole, be of the  very highest class, soldiers and sailors  who had been under    discipline and  shown themselves to posses the best  qualities of manhood.   Any portion of  the colonies should be proud  to see  such men and their womankind arrive  as an addition to their population, and  I  am quite sure  many parts  of the  empire will welcome them.    There is  another thing I  am sure will result,  tliat the empire  will ^ease to be  s������  fond of admitting* Germans and other  foreigners  within  its  gates, and  will  prefer to  stick  to  Anglo-Saxons."  From Dream to Reality  Aviation no Longer Considered Experimental, but an Actual Factor in  Modern Public Service  Aeroplane mail-carrying is now  recognized by the United States  Postmaster-General, and makers of  aeroplanes and hydroplanes are invited to tender on carrying the mails  on some important coast routes.** The  announced objects of the innovation  are the improvement of the service  and the development of the science  of aviation. One route selected in  Southern Massachusetts, from New  Bedford  across  Buzzard's    Bay    and  Mobilize British Women  Big Government Scheme to Care for  Agricultural Needs of the  Nation  The London "Daily News, gives some  details of the- government plans to  organize a recruiting campaign for  women to till the soil.  It is proposed to issue an armlet to  women willing to undertake farm,  work, and that they will be entitled  to wear a special uniform.  Every village will be canvassed, by  woman's committees, and all who volunteer will be registered and given  an armlet and uniform, which consists  of a coat, stout boots, skirt and gaiters.  Already 250,000 men have been  withdrawn, from, the field of agriculture, and it is anticipated that a further 100,000 will be lost to this occupation. Practically only the sheep  herders, ploughmen and others who  are indispensable will remain.  It is essential that an army of at  least 400,000 women be mobilized.  0 ASSlSI ANC   a  a    hbb warn  n a  IF*  *W*A\    W^W^  SIR EDWARD GREY GIVES THE REASONS FOR THIS  British.

Two .hours are allowed for the trip. Thirteen return  trips per week are required for the  four. summer months, and six week  ly trips during the remainder of the  year. The weight "limit is 3,0.00  pounds, and the hours of starting and  arriving are ' specified. In Alaska  tliere are routes from Valdez lo Fairbanks, 358 miles, and from Fairbanks to Tanana, 162 miles, three  times a week. A service twice a  week is required from .Tanana . to  Kaltag, 381 miles; from Kaltag to  Nome, 225 miles, and from Seward  to Iditarod, 380 miles. These and  other routes, set forth wiih definite-  ness as to hours and weights, are  subject to tender, the contracts to  be awarded when the bids are opened in May and October next.  The defmiteness of the departmental  demands  shows  that  aviation  is  no  longer  regarded  as  nebulous,   experimental,   or . uncertain,   but   as" an  actual factor in    modern public  services.     From     the   vague     stage "of  scientific   inquiry,   aerial     navigation  has become in a few years the sub-  pect   of    governmental    tenders     by  practical  men  of  business.

Fuel     consumption,   rates  of speed,  types  of construction,  and  methods of operation are  considered  with careful    regard  to  detail.    The  new century    has witnessed the conquest     of   air,   but   the   problem   of  distributing     the     products     of   the  growing multitude    of    useful    inven-  ������������������Frightfulness'*  Has  Failed  .

In Galicia seven miles from the ancient city of Cracow around which the  warring Prussians and Russians are  fighting for supremacy, is located the  famous salt mine of Wieliczka.  The mine has been actively worked  ever since its discovery, almost seven  hundred years ago. At the present  time the excavations reach a depth of  moro than a thousand feet.  The descent into the mine is made  by shafts and staircases;    The latter,  being    carved entirely    of rock salt,  spnrklo so brilliantly that ono feels at  each step as though he were treading  upon crystal glass.    Beforo    reaching  the bottom of this great cavern it is  necessary to travel over many of these  beautiful  stairways,  for  the  mino  of  Wieliczka   is  divided   into  threo   distinct compartments called fields: each  field consists of seven stories aiul each  story is made up of several chambers.  Some of these chambers are a hundred  feet  high,  a hundred  feet  long  and eighty feet wide.    They are left  in tho process of excavation, and when  any addition  is    required  it  is  built  with salt and water.    "Masses of salt  nre piled ono upon another and water  Is thrown over them dissolving a portion of lho salt; which fills up tho crevices.    When tlio wafer evaporates It  loaves a solid mass.   Columns of salt  uro left to support tho roof.  As there aro no springs at so groat  depth, the air Is vory dry, and 'everything is kept In-the most perfect state  of preservation.  Ono of tho largest chambers Is used  as a ballroom whoro gayly drejsscl  men and women gild over the smooth,  shining floor to the strains of Straus's  ".Beautiful   Blue   Danube"   wall/..

But tlio most wonderful thing In the  grout salt, mine of Wieliczka is    tho  An American View  The     U.S.   Needs   the   Friendship   of  England and  France  F. H. Taylor^ of the University of  Pittsburg, writing to the editor of the  New York Times, says:  The president has announced he  is ready to fight to preserve the full  liberties of American trade, and Congressman Mann says he considers  war with England more probable  than war with Germany.  Have these leaders stopped to think  of the consequences of a war with the  entente?    If the  present  war is  carried to a conclusion it can only end  with. the   destruction of  the   German  navy  and   the  Krupp works,  and'we  know that the czar expects it to last  two or three years longer. The square  miles of factories which are continually  being   added   to   the  Russian  and  English munitions plants are based on  this  calculation.    When  peace  comes  in Europe the entente and Japan will  proba.bly   have   lS.OOO'OOO   men  under  arms and they would'welcome a quarrel which would lessen their debts by  $40,000,000,000.     It   would   be   easier  for Great Britain to operate in  New  England   than   at   Saloniki     or  Suez.

[ot   li.ilu  The plan, of aiding Belgium to feed  | herself by rehabilitating the industries,of the country under control of  ; the American commission for relief in  ! Belgium, has failed, according to a  j leUer written by Sir Edward Grey, the  | British   foreign   secretary,   to  M.  Hy-  ��������� mans, the Belgian minister at London,  ! because the Germans thus far have  i failed to reply to the request for  } guarantees   that   raw   materials   and  ��������� manufactured goods will not be seized by the occupying armies.  The     American   reiief   commission  some time ago proposed that certain  kinds of nom-contraband raw materials  should be permitted to pass through  the  British  blockade    into    Belgium,  goods manufactured from them to be  re-exported.   It was proposed th3.t the  balance of trade thus created in favor  of Belgium should be invested in food,  thus putting tbe population so far as  possible upon a self-supporting' basis;  and  at the same  time  checking  the  igrowing demoralization    due to    long  | unemployment.     Sir     Edward   Grey's  letter to the Belgian minister follows:  "Dear   Minister,���������During     the   last  few months you "have represented to  me frequently the condition of industries in that part of Belgium occupied  by the enemy and the need" for import of raw material, if those industries were, to be saved from ruin and   .  universal  unemployment and distress  prevented.  "I now enclose a memorandum  which shows the true state of the  case. I should add that the question  here dealt with is entirely distinct  from the importation of foodstuffs into Belgium by the relief committee, as  to which the attitude of his majesty's  government remains that x*eceutly  ���������stated to parliament���������that the government will facilitate the work of the  commission as long and insofar, as the  work is carried on under adequate  neutral supervision completely independent of Germau control, and in  compliance with conditions laid down  from time to time by his majesty's  government.  ��������� Signed) "E. GREY."  The memorandum referred to by Sir  Edward Grey is iu part as follows:  "It is understood that there is a  strong feeling among the Belgians  that the industrial distress of Belgium  is to be attributed solely to the action  of the allied governments in preventing imports, and it often contended  that this action does not appreciably  harm Germany, while it involves a  most painful loss to the people of our  airy."  The memorandum then explains  that the British government cannot  agree that Belgian industry can bo  maintained in the present circumstances without a very considerable  benefit to Great Britain's enemies and  without involving g, postponement of  Belgian  independence.  But the government, it says, Is fully  impressed with the necessity of supporting the Belgian population. For  this re.tson it has. supported the commission for relief in Belgium^nd permitted export trade from Belgium under certain conditions. Also for this  reason, the memo adds, the government some   months ago   asserted its  \\ liiiligut:S������   iO   Cuutsiuci    iiVOpO-BJulS   fOV  I the importation of raw materials Into  j Belgium through the agency and un-  I der tbe guarantees of the relief com-  j mission.  "The undertakings demanded from  i the Germans in connection with this  | scheme," the memo continues, "woro  simple. They were to permit the free  importation of raw materials and the  export ot manufactured goods mado  from such materials through tho relief commission. They wero to respect  and make free from, all embargo or  requisition any stocks of similar raw  materials or manufactured goods still  remaining in the country. Thoy wore,  in genernl, to treat any factory thus  supplied by tho commission as enjoying tho game privileges nnd immunity  as ono of tho commissions warehouses."  The plan was submitted to tbo Germau authorities at Brussels by tho  relief commission four months ngo,  but although inquiries wero xuado no  reply of auy kind was received from  the Germans. ���������  The memo then accuses the    Ger-  mttnf? of a deliberate plnn not, to outer  into   any  ugrcomat  of    tho  j-ropuHed,  kind until Ihey havo talten "tho lust,  ounce of native   fltoelcB of raw muter-,  lals  or manufactured    goods    which j  enn ..bo of use to them, and till thoy--  have been able to create nuch  widespread destitution ns to force a requisite amount of Belgian hiboi-'to oral-  grate   to   Germany  or   tako   omploy-  r.,rr,4..
