CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, MAY 12, 1916  No. 17  Union Decides  New Selling Fees  An audience thoroughly representative of the bigger sellers, and a nice  sprinkling of smaller shippers was in  attendance at the shareholders meeting of the Creston Fruit Growers-  Union on Thursday night last at the  Auditorium, when the matter of selling the 1916 output of fruit and vegetables througe the Okanagan United  Growers���������the terms and general conditions of the proposed contract appearing in our last issue���������wa3 up'for  discussion and final settlement.  President Jackson occupied the  chair, and after the customary opening preliminaries had been gone  through with, called on Manager  Staples to present the proposed agreement with the O.U.G. * After the document had been read the gathering  was inyited to pass their opinion on  it, but so eminently satisfactory is the  new arrangement that no adverse  comment beingforthcomingon motion  of R. Stark, seconded by W. G.  Littlejohn, the directors were given  the necessary authority to close the  d.eal oh the basis outlined.  In view of this new arrangement it  was found necessary to make some  changes in thesellingeharges. Hitherto - shareholders' produce has been  handled on a margin of 12 per cent.  For this year this charge will be 10  per cent, (which includes the commission paid the O.U.G.), but in addition there will be a pool charge on  every package, crate or box handled,  as follows:  5 cirEit'S s crate on Sti-awfoorries",  Raspberries, Gooseberries, Black berries, Currants and Sour Cherries.  4 cents* a box on Apples, Crab Apples and Pears.  .3 cents a crate on Tomatoes. Peaches, Plums, Sweet Cherries, Cucumbers,  Peas, Beans, Rhubarb, Green Peppers,  Pickling Onions. Green Corn and  Bunch Vegetables.  50 cents a ton on coarse vegetables.  The new arrangement in some lines  will work out slightly higher than 12  per cent, but past experience as well  as information to hand from Okanagan  selling agencies all go to show that  the 12 per cent, margin invariably  rifles a trifle too low if a modicum  of profit is to be shown on the year's  business.  It is satisfactory to hear that. although the O.U.G. were not to enter  upon the���������selling campaign for Creston  until May 15th, they are already busy  disposing of the limited quantity of  rhubarb that is offering locally.  great success. The fact that it is at  Wynndel and that Mesdames Duncan  and Bathie are to be hostesses should  be a sufficient guarantee of that.  The meeting of the Co-Ooperative  Fruit Growers Association held on  Saturday night was very well attended despite the had weaaher conditions.  The selling plans for 1916 and the  berry picking and packing were about  the only subjects brought up at the  meeting. '  Local Conservatives were out in  force for the meeting of the Wynndel  Association on Saturday night.^JJy a  unanimous vote our delegate was instructed to support the Valley candidate, R. J. Long, at the coming nominating convention. It was decided  that the Association should pay the  delegate's expenses. Other matters  under discussion were the fixing of  the eulvert in Duck Creek under the  C.P������R. so as to allow fish to ascend the  the creek and roads.  Prizes for Pickles  Cooking, Sewing  ooara or  iraae  Has Busy Session  Creston visitors this week include  Mrs. May and Miss A. Hagen on  Monday and Mrs. Duncan, J. J.  Grady and IS, Southwell on Tuesday.  A large party of Austrians from an  internment camp arrived here on Saturday from Winnipeg to take lho  place of the Italians of the fencing  gang that quit last week.  There was quite a frost here on  Tuesday night, but it docs not appear  to have injured the peach and cherry  blossoms,  P. II. Price arrived here at the beginning of tho week.

Mny   VMh.   bids fair to ben,  The best attended meeting the Board  of Trade has had for at least two  years was in evidence on Tuesday  night, President "Reid in charge.  The customary grist of correspondence was decidedly abbreviated this  trip, there being but two letters; one  from the coast asking that a delegate  be sent to a provincial board of trade  convention at Vancouver next week-  on which no action was taken, and  another from the British-American  Soldiers' Blind Relief Association asking the board to distribute contribution boxes and otherwise arouse financial interest in the association's work,  on which point the secretary will write  for further particulai*s.'  On creamery matters W.   V.  Jackson reported on the visit of Mr. Am-  merrnan,   the    Cranbrook    creamery  manager, who made a canvass of the  Valley looking for a cream supply  a  few days ago.    He appears to have  been quite successful for the short stay  he made, going away with the assurance of getting the cream from about  150   cows,   provided   satisfactory arrangements ean be made for it gathering .and delivery at a shipping point.  The recent move of J. H. Schofield,  M.P.P., to have the government take  into consideration the reclamation of  Kootenay fiats to provide land  for returned soldiei-s was discussed at great  length, all present taking a hand in  the debate, all agreeing that the early  completion of this work was what was  needed to make Creston the best section of the interior, and   the majority  favoring    government     reclamation  rather than the sale of the area to a  land corporation for drainage and sale  on an agreement to  bo approved  by  the government.    Messrs. Henderson,  Hayes and Bennett  were   named   a  committee to get busy at once on   a  memorial to Mr. Schofield reiterating  the  benefits that will   accrue to* the  province as weii as this part wero the  job completed and exhorting onr member to never weary of well doing on  the scheme he has beforo tho" government.   Thoso interested in tho scheme  at Bonners Ferry  and  othor Idaho  points will also be urged to do their  bit in thin connection.  Owing to decidedly disagreeable  weather the May meeting of Creston  Women's Institute, on Saturday afternoon last, did not attract the bang  up attendance that has been in. evidence at all the previous meetings,  though, at that, there was a whole lot  more' than a quorum present. Not  only "were many of tho. rank and file  absent, but owing to too much wetness Mrs. Thurston was absent and  the meeting was deprived of the paper  on "Strawberry-*Culture," that shy  had arranged to present. Mrs. Fred  Smith gave a carefully-prepared and  very interesting sketch on the "Origin  of Women's Institute work in British  Columbia," while in the social department the ladies \ye*"e favored with a  reading by Mr. H. Lyne, and a yocal  duett, "Friendship," by Mrs. Lindley  and Mrs. Lidgate. And, of course,  there was surgical bandage making for  the Red Cross, with tea to close.  Those entrusted with League of  Empire work reportei that they had  two volumes of selected clippings gotten together in serapbook form, and  these will be sent to league headquarters to be forwarded one of the B.C,  regiments overseas.  The Flower Show the Institute proposes to have this year will be held  the early part of September, and in  addition to the floral' competition  there will also be prizes for needlework, cooking, jams and pickles.  As the government grant for tnsti-  tute work is made on the basis of paid  tip members on the roll at June 1st the  ladies ars hoping th'it all who contemplate joining -**the Institute will  make a special effort to do so before  the first of next month. The grant  will be. utilized forijprize money for the  fair and, of course, it is very desirable  Lo give attractive prizes on as many  articles in the classes enumerated as  possible. The next meeting is on June  3rd.  apparently having broken its back.  Acting on the advice of several persons  who happened to be passing the animal was killed to end its misery.  Some claim that there were two fawns  with the old one when they were  noticed grazing on the flats.  Mrs. Streetor, who has resigned as  principal of the Erickson school, and  leaves next week for Oregon, goes  away with the goodwill and high regard of many of the parents here, as  is shown in the following note The  Review is asked to publish and which  carries the signature of numerous  grateful parents: "We, some of the  appreciative 'parents, take this op-  portunity cf publicly thanking Mrs.  Streetor for the good work she has  done here, and by our children.

Hugh Dobson's talk on "Women Suffrage" in the Methodist  Church, last Friday evening, was disappointingly small���������particularly when  one considers the well-deserved reputation Mr. Dobsori enjoys as a public  speaker.  Whatever his feelings were they did  not in the least adversely affect his  address. As a matter of fiict for those  is attendance he was r������ossiblv more !  appreciated than han the church been  crowded; in his informal talk he was  able to get closer home and at the  same time give ample evidence of his  oratorical genius and all-round mastery of his subject.  Mr. Dobson attached a much deeper  significance tc woman suffrage than  is current with   the average citizen.  To him it was no fad to give women a  little more latitude to gratify personal  ambitions.    In fact the giving, of woman   suffrage on  broad lines  would  open up to woman a sphere   of useful-  n' ss in community life that demanded  of the best there was iu  womanhood,  if  present-day   social   and   economic  problems are ever to  be successfully  solyed and adjusted.    In eyolying the  why and  wherefore of the radically  changed condition in all phases of our  own everyday life as compared with  the old order of things in  the days of  homespun, Mr. Dobson's plea was  not  for a getting back to something  that  was a compromise   between  tho old  and new order of things,but rather for  the admission of the womon   into  full  partnership in helping the nation out  of    its    diffieultiee.    Without    their  equal-responsibility and   co-oporrtion  the right solution and  correction  of  numerous present-day vexed problems  was out of the question.  In viow of tho forthcoming vote on  prohibition Mr. Dobson devoted his  closing remarks to that subject. His  leading argument to convince that a  "dry" B.C. was desirable had to do  with the prompt measures takon by  Russia, to prohibit drinking in order  that tne soldiors should reach tho  highest state of physical efficiency,  with Franco adopting like measures  with cot tain intoxh-anUk and Great  Britain also curtailing tho hours of  sale and abolishing thotroatingsystom  in many oontros.

As to compensation   for the  trade,  in ease prohibition carried, he.   asserted that-should li.C concede compensation she would be. the llrst province in  Canada, tho Unltod States or Croat  Britain to do such an act.    In explaining why thoro was so  much heard  of  compoiitiafion   in   British    Columbia,  Mr. Dobson asserted   this was solely  due to tho fact that tbe   provincial  imviTiiitieiif was on such  good   forms  with the liquor interests that   the latter fell, Ihey were in ii position to  ie������k  and n ceivc better tnrniH than had been  m������ led out in the other province)-.

This good lady, the widow of a  soldier, has given no fewer than seventeen sons to the army, of whom  fourteen were actually on active service with the colors on September  15th, 191.4. six weeks only after the  outbreak of the war.  Another patriotic mother, Mrs.  Jones of Kyverdale Road, Stamford  Hill, gave her three triplet sons and  a fourth sou to the army.  Then there is Mrs. Potter, a Portsmouth, Bng., widow, aged eighty-  three, who has heen awarded a prize  locally for being the head of the funnily with the -most members in  fighting services. Sixteen of  grandsons     are  in   the   army .or  am-  the  her  the  of  active  navy, and the husbands of four  of her granddaughters are on  service, making twenty for her descendants altogether fighting for King  and country. In addition, two other  grandsons, now dead, were in the  navy.  His Debt to His Nation  Tliere is no more reason to leave  the paying of his debt to his nation to  .each man's conscience than there is in  leaving the paying of his debt to his  bank to each man's conscience. The  volunteer system is unsound both from  the military and from the civic point  of view. It is inevitably -.-.njust and  demoralizing. It is unworkable, as the  failure of Lord Derby's moderate and  conciliatory plan has just proved  again in England and in the midst of a  great war. Por the sake of American  youth and for the sake of the nation,  we ought to adopt universal compulsory military training and service now.  while peace permits us to do it deliberately, consciously, not as a hasty bitter necessity, but on principles of  democratic service and unforced patriotic devotion.���������Chicago Tribune.

Cured by Toning the Blood and  f*trrtrttit~itf*rtttrt<S the  rSJf'rve'J  Ie is the opinion of the best medical  authorities,    after    long    observation,  that nervous diseases are more common    and more serious in the spring  than at any other time of the year.  Vital changes in the system, after long j  winter months, may cause much more !  .trouble than the familiar spring weak-}  ness and weariness from which most j  people suffer as the result of indoor  life,    in poorly ventilated    and often  overheated buildings.    Official records  prove that in April and May neuralgia,  St.  Vitus', dance,    epilepsy and ether  forms of nerve troubles  ai'e at their  worst, and that then, more than any  other time, a blood-making, nerve-restoring tonic.is needed.  The antiquated custom of taking  purgatives in the spring is useless, for  the system really needs strengthening,  while purgatives only gallop #through  ��������� lie bowels, leaving you weaker. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills , are the best  medicine, for they actually make the  new, rich, red' blood that feeds tlio  starved nerves, and thus cure the  many forms of nervous disorders.  They cure also such other forms of  spring troubles as headaches, poor appetite, weakness in the limbs, as well  as remove unsightly pimples aud eruptions. In fact they unfailingly bring  new health and strength to weak,  tired and depressed men, women and  children.

Hugh Dobson to Creston  ou Friday night, furnished evidence  of a rather deplorable bit of shortsightedness���������speaking al together  from the material standpoint���������to  say nothing of an equally lamentable lack of appreciation of our  more intellectual responsibilities.  As   many   will   readily   recollect  Mr. Dobson's talk was on "'Woman  Suffrage,"   a  topic that has been  much to the fore of late; a   matter  on which the  electors  of B.C. will  be asked to vote   for or against at  the coming provincial election, and  undoubtedly  one   of   the   greatest  problems ihe empire   will  have   to  deal   with  at the close of this war.  In addition   to  having   a   close-  home topic Mr. Dobson came with  a merited reputation for being able  to handle most any   subject  in  instructive and entertaining  fashion  ���������and he certainly lived up   to  advance   notices������������������yet    his   audience  consisted of  exactly   nine   persons,  three of them   ladies,   and.   by tho  way, none of the trio,   thnt we   are  aware   of,     identified     with     tho  woman nufirage association Creston  one time boasted.  The point we wish to make,  however, does not concern tho  speaker's ability nor the subject ho  was disciiHsing altogether, but has  to do with the impression Mr.  Dul-Miii might carry nway of the  place, and pass on lo enquirers iih  opportunity ntighl.  ull'ord.

For instance, there's the matter  of the suggested ne w high school.  If the letter and spirit of the  Education Act is to be lived up to  goodbye h.s.*, but if the previous  policy of special consideration in  exceptional and meritorious cases  still prevails we believe a good and  sufficient case can be made out to  secure the higher seat of learning  at nominal additional expense to  the ratepayers.  Then, there's the matter of  reclamation. We believe the board  of trade is still in debt for the  expenses of one or more delegates  to Victoria two or three years ago  to beard the lion in his den, as is  were, to get some action in this  matter���������and its urgency is as  pressing to day as it was then.  Undoubtedly,   too,    the  farmers  institute or fruitgrowers have some  matters they would   like   to  bring  directly  to the premier's attention.  The erecting of the Valley, or  the  necessary    portion    of  it,   into   an  organized    municipolity   might  be  broached.    The fellows who roundly   cussed   the    waterworks     last  winter could   air  their grievances,  and the mere detail   of  giving   us  another .T.P. so as to rendor workable our small debts court might be  discreetly   presented,   and   various  other major ami   minor matters���������  notably the non-workability of our  cattle pound law.  These sort of heart to heart talks  will do more in an hour or two to  give the premier an insight into  the government-remedial ills the  Valley is suffering from (or imagines  it is) than all the resolutions a  political association could pass in a  month of Sundays and, aftor all, it  is this unprejudiced statement of  tho case Mr. Bowser is niter- this  trip particularly.  Creston    -    -    British Columbia  erctaant  lands for soldiers returned from the  war it was unfortunate our present  representatives,   -J.   H.   Sob/field,  M.P.P., would not have us for constituents next election, and that in  our new electoral  nonie tiie sitting  member would not seek re-election,  leaving  us  without  an   interested  party to put forward the Kootenay  flats   reclamation   scheme at  this  time when   the   proposition  fitted  so   thoroughly   inio    the    eternal  fitness   of    things    political   and  economic.  The editorial evidently struck  homo to Mr. Schofield for on Saturday the Nelson News carries a  despatch from Victoria, dated May  5th, announcing that  James H. Schofield, member for  Ymir riding, is endeavoring to get  through an amendment to the soldiers'  land bill which would open the way  for the reclamation of the Kootenay  flats.  Mr. Schotield's proposal is that a  clause should be inserted in the act  which would give the government the  power to devote money to the reclamation of lands owned by the  province.  This would enable the government  to expend money upon reclaiming the  flats in the Croston district. In this  tract are -10,000 acres (if land sufficient  to accommodate the families of 2,000  soldiers.  Several members of the house, notably IJ. E. Forstcr (Columbia) have  suggested that the government should  take power to purchase land for soldiers near the centres of settlement,  the money for such, purposes to como  from the proceeds of the sale of part of  the. partly purchased lands which will  revert to tho government from speculators. Mr. Schofield's proposal is right-  in lino with this idea and while it  would not bind the government to the  expenditure of money at a time before  any money in available under the act.  it would open the way for carrying  out the Kootenay river reclamation  scheme, settling soldiors on the reclaimed farms and bringing to Kootenay and Boundary a large number of  now settlers. Mr. Schofield is now  taking the matter up with the  government.  There is absolutely no gainsaying  the statement that in all B.C. thero  is not another district that can  offer the agricultural attraotivoness  that would accrue to tho Valley  wore these flats made available for  cultivation and under all the favorable circumstances \\m\> call for  their reclamation, including a  sharing up of tho cost by tho state  of Idaho, it is to be hoped Mr.  Schofield will havo such local cooperation an may be possible under  tho circumstances and that ho will  plead hie "ic-e i-'itb the '/mil of a  man wooing a widow, a task in  rendered   recently j w|li(;),    yo���������      ���������,ui,m-,   uVerdo    tho  thing     mo we nro lold.

Put 8 gallons of water in kettle, and  start fire, place lime in kettle. After  slaking is well started, add the dry  sulphur and mix thoroughly, adding  enough water to maintain a thin paste,  which requires about 5 gallons. After  the slaking and mixing is completed,  add water to the height of 40 gallons  on the measuring stick, bring to a boil  and stir until the sulphury scum  practically disappears. Then add  water (preferably, but not necessarily,  hot) to the 55 gallon height, and boil  to 45 gallons. The material should be  kept well stirred, especially during the  early stages of the process, and uny  lumps of sulphur or lime should be  thoroughlv broken un.  O ������- j*.  The   total   time   of   actual   boliing  should be about one hour,   though a  ten-minute variation either way is not  objectionable providing the sulphur is  evidently dissolved.   The fact is best  determined   by  dipping  and   slowly  pouring   some of the material.    The  amounts of water indicated above are  ample for one hour's  fairly   vigorous  boiling, with the (hushing volumes as  indicated.    If it is   not at a   desired  height at the close, it may he made so  by mon* water or more  boiling,  and  either the amount of water in   tho  second addition or the vigor of boiling  can be so modified in later trials as to  enable tho total to be brought to  the  desired height approximately at the  end of thu hour.  The finished product may be immediately poured or strained into a  barrel or settling tank or into the  spray tank. The straining is merely a  safeguard to prevent any possible  clogging because of imperfect materials or failure to break lumps in the  sulphur. When properly made the  amount of sediment left io the strainer is insignificant, being less than one  percent., and may be thrown away.  To avoid any considerable hiss of  materials, however, the sediment in  the Htraincr can be washed with part  of tho water used in making the next  Int., Jillilply tioiil'iiiii- I llu wiituf tllrnilidt  the strainer into the kettle, and nny  lump* of Mil|>hur dirM-.oVf.ivd in,.> In-  broken up and used again.

The crust which forms on the finished material is prevented by immediately covering the solution with a layer  of oil about an eight of an inch thick,  and avoiding unnecessary exposure to  air in lhe transfer from kettle to  storage tank. An ordinary paraffine  oil was very satisfactory in om- work,  but there is no reason we believe that  any other oil, not injurious to trees  nor likely to take fire at boiling temperatures, may be used with equal  success,  The crust may also be prevented by  immediate storage in tight, closed  vessels, filling them completely. But  partially filled vessels are likely to  develop some crust upon continual  exposure.  Lime of good quality should be  used for making the home-made concentrate. Beach ville Mme (0.6 per  cent impurity) is of ideal quality and  any lime with not more than 10 per  cent impurity would be suitable, such  as Ottawa, Coboeonk, Trenton, Ain-  herstburg, Oaledon, etc.  Freshly burnt lime should also be  used, because air-slaked lime combines  with sulphur very slowly. The latter  is very good for making the ordinary  home-boiled wash where the amount  of lime used is usually greater than  the amount of sulphur, bnt for the  manufacture of the concentrate it is  wholly unsuitable.  if all the It)io taxes are paid in full  and the income from other sources up  to the estimates Vernon city treasurer  will handle $181,180 this year.

Geographically it has  seemed remote from all the other  zones of major operations���������aiore in  the nature of a little war by itself. The  average layman when asked to locate  the region places it raiher indefinitely  "'somewhere in Western Asia."  The Caucasus for a great many  years has been Russia's outpost from  ���������which gradually she has extended her  Influence over Northern Persia and the  potentially wealthy area of Eastern  Asia "Minor. The lofty mountains, on  the other hand, have been Turkey's  "bulwark against encroaching Muscovites, held with desperation against an  ever-increasing pressure from the  sorth.  The first effort of the Ottoman  army when it was projected into the  ;war was directed through the Caucasus against Russia. A force based  on the fortified city of Erzerum sought  to clear the frontier and capture Kars,  the metropolis of the Russian coasted  district. The column penetrated to  the very outskirts of Kars, and for a  few days there were rumors of its  capture, but the Russians succeeded  In the end in not only retaining it but  driving back the Turks to the frontier  and beyond.  AH of the first  winter of the war  fighting of the utmost severity occurred   in   the  mountains,      where   . the  armies surged back and forth in snow-  that at times reached a depth of 20  feet.    At least 200,000 men were engaged  in a series  of desperate  conflicts that lasted until early in April,  when    the Turks,    with the battle a  .  stalemate,  withdrew  a  good  part  of  their forces to meet the Anglo-French  demonstration    against    the    Dardanelles.   The German and Austrian offensive, which  was  organized at the  same time and began May 1st with the  battle of Donajec, at the same time  saved the situation for the Turks by  compelling the Russians to end their  activities in the Caucasus and concentrate every available man and gun in  Galicia just at a time when the weakening of the Turkish front might have  permitted   a   decisive   victory.     The  conditions of the great war as a whole  have prevented until recently the resumption of the  campaign with  anything   like   adequate     numbers     and  equipment.  Simultaneously- with the beginning  of the drive on the Arasa the Russians opened an active campaign on  the southern shores of Lake Van and  increased their activity in Persia.  Perhaps no better illustration of the  spirit of co-operation that actuates  The allied war offices can be found  tl-an this widespread attack on the  Turks. It will be noted that the re-  suinption of Russian activity against  the Porte came just at the time when  the Anglo-French pressure at the  Dardanelles was withdrawn. Far  from having- an opportunity for rest  and ���������recuperation after the struggle  on Gallipoli the Ottoman army was  forced almost over night to prepare  to meet a strong and determined offensive on its opposite frontier and  over a front, including three active  ' zones, of more than three hundred  miles. This was Russia's contribution to the game of "worrying tho  Turk."  x -ugj-uxiir  r SuLfpGJ  mjjpu-rt Required  Importance of Independent Educational Work in Protecting Wild  Life  There is no dearth, in Canada of governmental agencies actively engaged  in conserving bird ami animal life.  While the work is mainly in the hands  of the provinces, several branches of,  the federal government are-also rendering invaluable service. Unfortunately, popular support of official nieas-  sures, which is the most potent single  factor in insuring their success, is  very much lacking. The most serious obstacles and difficulties arise  from the lack of strong unofficial societies  to  carry on independent work.  The great advance of wild life protection in the United Slates, in recent  years, is due largely to the efforts of  such  bodies  as the  American    Game  Protective   and   Propagation   association, the National Association of Audubon     Societies, the Camp Fire club  and the American Bison Society, Similar organizations exist in Canada, and  the  excellent  work  of  the   Canadian  Society  for the  Protection  of  Birds,  the  Independent  Naturalists  Association,   the  Dominion  Game   Protective  and   Trap-Shooting   Association     and  others can not be too highly commended.     But   Canadian   organizations   of  this character have failed to develop  their efforts and to utilize their opportunities to the extent which their field  of usefulness permits and invites. It  must be recognized that, while the in-  iative in game law reforms may come  from  public, officials,  the  success  of  practical   measures   requires   popular  support, which, in. turn, must depend  upou   persistent   educational    efforts.  The scope along these lines for independent societies is unlimited, and it  is to be hoped that, as the need for  better protection of wild life becomes  steadily  more   apparent,  this   branca  of the work will be successful in enlisting the  services  of an  increasing  number of active workers.  Believed to bs Planted  Off Coast of Labrador  Declaring that he has positve "knowledge of a cache of treasures in the  North Atlantic near the Canadian  coast, Milton McMillan, wealthy ''sailor of fortune," is preparing an expedition by sea to hunt for the gold. Associated with him are Captain Ward, |  an aged navigator and two wealthy '  citizens of Los Angeles.  Mr. McMillan, who, eight years ago  brought to the notice of some American scientists, the areheological value  of the relics of San Nicholas island,  talks freely of the proposed treasure  hunt..until he is interrogated regarding the exact location of tho island.  Then he is silent.  He says the gold and jewels���������hidden by a pirate chief, of course, a la  Stevenson���������is secreted on a mushroom shaped island somewhere off the  coast of Labrador. His faith in the  idea that he will bring to light of the  20th century the horde of a pirate of  the 18th is shown by his extensive  buying of supplies for the trip, which. \  will be made via the Panama Canal.  He says this island is just one ledge  of birdseye porphyry looming our. of  the deep, altitude 300 feet, o50 feel  long and 150 feet wide. The location  is safe for navigation near to the  island only two months out of the  year, he says, because of the storms  which visit those latitudes.  The sea captain, Ward, whose  grandfather roamed the deep in the  early part of the 19th century, brought  the story of pirate wealth hidden in  the reef.  Captain Ward says he got the word  from his grandfather, who in turn received it from his grandfather, that  one of the blood-thirsty robbers of the  sea who scuttled many a good ship  during colonial days hid his booty of  years on this island and then had to  sail away and die somewhere.

Whereas, under the present voluntary system there is great waste of the  nation's resources.  The Hamilton Recruiting League  humbly begs the government of Canada to appoint a commission for the  purpose of:  (a) Taking, a census of all men in  the Dominion from 18 years of age and  upward, specifying those married and  unmarried.  (b) Classifying the men according  to their occupations or their fitness or  preference l'or certain kinds of work.

Operations had not been carried far  before the owner of the homelike place  sauntered out, inquired of the travellers where they Avere- from, where they  were going and otherwise made himself  agreeable. He invited the lady tourist to conic up on the porch with his  wife, where there was an easy chair,  cool shade and au abundance of ice  water.  After the tire had been changed, the  tourists were invited to wash up and  to rest and refresh themselves.  Can you imagine a more appreciated  courtesy? This man, the owner of the  homelike place in the little town, was  the leading merchant and his attention  to the strangers was nothing more nor  less than his everyday business policy.  He told the tourists all about the little town and the prosperous farming  community that surrounded it, and  upon which it depended for support.  He said that he knew all the members  of every farmer's family within his  trade district; that h'e had visited  every house and he made it a practice  to do so at frequent intervals.  He started in business twenty-five  years ago with a capital of $500. Today he is in comfortable circumstances and doing a larger business  than at any time during his experience.  Merchants like this man make the  home town the most valuable asset in  the community. A good home town enhances the value of every acre of land  in the vicinity; it makes every farm  a more desirable place to live. The  home town is the best investment a  farming community can have and it  only requires the good will and cooperation of the business men and the  farmers to make it pay big dividends,  socially aud financially, to every- family in the community, both town and  country.  consumed sixty years ago in the form ( claim a share of the credit that is due  What Canada Spends  Enormous Total of War Expenditures  For the Present Year  "The oxpenriiLuro for war purposes In Canada will aggregate ."PGOO,-  1)00,000 within tho present calendar  year," according to the estimate .of  tho March letter of the Canadian  Hank of commerce.

Canada has without doubt attracted  to tho colors a very superior class of  men who arc actuated by the noblest  principles of patriotism und duty.  Very many of these have left positions of great importance for which  competent men cannot be found.  Almost overy industry und family is  suffering unnecessary loss through the  present haphazard method of enlistment.  The first class of men who should be  called upon for service nre the. unmarried lit men who could be released  from their present occupations without  serious loss  lo anyone.  Probably this class would suffice to  com pi eli- tho forces which Canada is  pledged to supply.

Why We Took Over Corfu  A.Greek merchant residing in Great  Britain writes to remind people that  Corfu was given as a present to Greece  by Great Britain, with other Ionian islands, but there was a distinct condition  attached  to ihe  occupation    by  Greece in the Treaty of 186:!, and that  was that the dynasty 'must not walk  rough  shod  over the  Constitution  of  the country.   The monarchy of Greece  in short,  was to be  ;i  Constitutional  one.   it had not been that during 1015  -������������������It had been an autocratic monarchy.  The Treaty guaranteed tho Independence of Greece    as  a  Constitutional  monarchy, and having given tliat guarantee, tho guarantee]r.g powers had a  perfect right to sec that the Constitutional government was not violated by  tho king.    That Constitution had been  violated by holding two elections in a  year, and by the unconstitutional dismissal of tho last ministry, and therefore tho guaranteeing powers had the  right to interfere.  Waste  in  Forest Protection  Because of lack of field supervision,  more money is wasted in fire protection today than is used economically.  Fire wardens arc nearly all temporary  men. und  if one does  not  give them  supervision and training, and does not  try lo keep the good men from ,vear Co  year,  one cannot  get  the  results desired.    In tho first lire protection service p.   of   Canada,   far   more   ward onn  were wasting money than were making good  ubo of it.     Unless wo have  good   permanent  supervision    of  lire  protection and have the same men as  P'-rinanont rangers year after year we  will not. get the good results beenuse  we  have   large  areas   io  protect   with  verv small sums of money.    .McMillan.  r..-.rlcy  cr  Or.lr.  r'nr.t  "I   Know  that  a  number of  farmers  think   outs  nhotihl   cutnc   bei'mv   barley  in  thi!

Nares of Fresno,  CaL, who reached New York recently.  He was in Liverpool on the night of  the "central counties raid," as it is  known, on Feb. 1, though they reached  neither Liverpool nor Manchester, as  the Gerniaus asserted they did.  '*The damage they done *was confined to a small brewery," he said, "and a  few little cottages and homes in which  the casualties occurred. No one seem-  ori gt oil excited about the raid. TVIisn  the word was Hashed from the coast  that the 'Zepps'were coming the cities  and towns gave the usual signals, and  every one, except the many curious,  took cover. You know they lower the  lights for about ten minutes and then  flash, them on again for a time, and  the people go to their homes and wait  in the safest places. Then, of course,  trains and tramcars were stopped  while the raid was in progress, r-.nd  as soon as the airships came near any  town all the lights were put out. I  was in Liverpool on the night of. the  raid and did not hear anything about  it until next day.  "I found business conditions in Kng-  land very good, except for the shortage  of labor. For the first time in years,  every one in the United Kingdom has  work and all the work they can do.  And what is moro every one is working. All the women, of the high and  low degrees, are employed. Every  man. woman or child is doing his or>  her bit. A remarkable- feature of the  present economic life in England is  the number of women who are working at trades that used to employ men  exclusively. There are thousands of  them in the munition plants and they  told me that the women make the best  sort of labor for this class of work,  as tliey are capable of handling lhe  finest tools with facility after a short  training. All England is adjusting itself to the new conditions and malting  the best of things.  "For the first timo in years, also,  there is no suffering among tho poor,  In fact, there are now no poor. The  shortage of labor makes every hand,  available and in families where four or  five pounds a month used to be the income, they now received from thirty  to forty. Of course, this leads to ex-  traviigance in many cases and it is not  uncommon for these families to buy  pianos and other luxuries where "before the war they were thankful t������  get enough to eat.  "I had occasion to meet a number  of what we would call 'big business  men,' and others intimately connected  with the work being done for the  empire, and they assured me that the  recruiting was all that could be desired.  "Everywhere I wont I found all the  open places tilled Willi, soldiers. All  lho parks, golf courses, playgrounds,  und schoolyards were being vised, and  I heard it said several times that the  full 4,000,(K)0 men required had been  obtained.  "One. ot the reasons, that Englishmen feel so confident about the outcome of the war is that, perfect cooperation has been established among  the allies. They are practically one  great nation, armed lo defend itself  against the Germans. In England they  receive things they need from lho  French and Russians, to say nothing  of tho Kalians, and lhe latter, on the  othor hand, get their necessities from  England. There is perfect co-operation in finance, manufactures, the making of munitious, the supplying of tho  armies, and, best of all, at the front  where tho real worlc of the- war is  being done.
