Archie has not changed much in appearance since the days  when he was head ot the local fire department and one of the leading citizens of the t6wn, except perhaps that  i he has grown a wee bit stouter.   His  house at Crow's Nest was destroyed|by  fire last February, and Mrs.  Fletcher  is now residing in Nelson,  in  which  city his daughter Del is just completing her course of training as a nurse.  His son Joe, who will be remembered  as a curly headed kiddoin Kaslo boulevards in the early days, is now a  mail  clerk on the Crow line running into  Calgary.

As a result o������ the 'find' by scientists, the New York Zoological Gard-1  ens have sent to E. A. Mclnhenny for  a numher of the water snakes for exhibition ia their snake department,  and Mr. Mcllhenny is going to send  them, a slagniappe, a good sample of  the horn snake, which he caught while  projecting around for the water  snakes.'  Just why the water snakes should  grow to the immense size that they  do in this particular locality is a mystery, and grow they do, as specimens  four feet and over in length and from  three to four inches in diameter have  been captured for the New York Zoo.  They are non-venomous and subsist  mostly on fis>h and the young birds  which have fallen out of nests and  into or near the water. Great sluggish things they appear while lying  asleep in the sun on the mud banks  near the water's edge, but let them  get into the water and afte_- the minnows and small fish which comprise  their food and their sluggishness disappears immediately '..nd their speed  and agility are wonderful.  The horn snake has for years been  the subject of legends galore among  the members of the negro race, especially in the south, and by these  people it is invested with an amount  of wonderful and. terrible qualities  that make it feared above all other  varieties- Imagination is necessary  to furnish even the slightest foundation for many of these stories.  Growing to immense size, according  to the folk lore, the horn snake carries destruction to man, beast or vegetation that it strikes with the horn  it carries at the end of its tail, and  according to tha negroes  wiii    sometimes kill  even grown trees when it  becomes   angered   by   stingiug   them.  Tbe tree stung is said to wither and  j die immediately after the deadly wea-  ] pon has entered its bark.  !

In view of the startling facts which have been proven  by scientific investigation, it is important that everyone should take a  hand in exterminating that dangerous  insect.  The germs of typhoid fever, tuberculosis, infantile enteritis, cholera and  infantile paralysis are carried from  place to place by the house fly. It  can carry a million or more germs on  #ts feet. It breeds in filth, lives on  Jlth and carries on its sticky legs and  3;et and mouth the germs from the  filthiest places to our clean houses  and clean food.  The female breeds over 500 million  offspring in a season, and out of that  number 8 million live to carry on the  deadly work. 10 million dfflars are  spent every year in screens, and with  a much less expenditure of money and  energy the dangerous fly could be  destroyed nd the spread of so many  ���������dlse-ises  prevented.

THE 'REDBEARDS'  Brigandage  In  Northern  Manchuria  Commercial    conditions    in    North  Manchuria during the year 1912. have  been far from satisfactory, says  Mr.  Mr.    A.    V..

Even at this great distance from  the centres of the Chinese revolution  which broke out in the autumn of  1911, .he says, its effects have been  manifested in lessening the already  sufficiently vague aud shadowy authority exercised by Chinese officialdom over the population.  A direct incentive was thus given  to lawless acts of brigandage, and  large numbers swelled the ranks of  the redoubtable Hunghutzu or red  beards who infested, the couutryside  and made a prosperous livelihood by  means of rapine and the holding for  ransom of i-rsons and property. Such  terror did these men exercise that carriers refused to face the risk of the  road unless very highly paid, and the  prices commanded for l"-e hire of their  services aud vehicles rose to one hundred and titty per cent. In excess of  the nominal figure.  The natural result was that fat-  smaller quantities of cereals were obtainable than had bee.i anticipated,  and the local prices rose to an almost  prohibitive scale���������from $15 to $20  per ton; failures were no. infrequent,  ! and the : *.ore substantial merchants  were in many cases only able to load  the vessels chartered to fulfil their  forward contracts at a serious loss.  Instead of the anticipated large increase in the exports of soya beans  during the year 1912, for the haulage  of which the Chinese Eastern Railway  had made elaborate preparations, the  value of exports of 'his commodity  was actually only some 77 per cent,  of the figure;- reached in 1911.  Prior to the end of 1912 tho Chine&e.  took no steps tu cope with the state  of affairs; it is, however, satisfactory  to be able to report that at the time  of writing (April, 191S) efficient military measures of repression have been  carried out, and in the chief producing  centres within 100 miles radius of  Harbin order and safety to life and  property "krve been restored.  Casting Shadows Before  South Sea Islanders, in Captain  Cook's day, believed that when they  fed on an enemy his courage found.its  .Way into their hearts. We may  smile at s. notion so crude. Two  hundred years ago, and more, South  American Indians began relieving the  pangs of Indigestion by eatih;.; the  stomachs of ostriches. We may imagine them removing from those organs any resldum of nails, or doorknobs, which might remain there. For  a long time this rude remedy wus  laughed at by Spaniards and Englishmen.

Nutrition, which follow*; iipon digestion, seems to Cepend upon the thyroid gland, conspicuous in the human  throat as Adam's apple. When one  of the lower animals suffers the removal of Its thyroid gland, nutrition is  at once seriously disturbed.

CURED ECZEMA  UKEMAGiC  Th- Gypsy and his Way of Living  Real Romanies or Gypsies, are very  scarce in this country xnd most of  tho people who travel and pose as  gypsies here are either tramps or hybrids, the result of intermarriage cf  the real gypsy with other races'. Gypsies are very numerous in. England,  but it is necessary to have.: a guide  if the visitors would like to see them  in their fa- orite haunts. Of late  years, law, order and sanitary conditions have driven the Romanies into  ] secluded nooks and forest lingles. In  such places can be seen the oval roofed caravan, quite unlike the palatial  conveyance of would-be imitators or  show people. Here also can be  found the tents, which "reminds one of  that vast throng of people, the Israelites, who lived the gipsy life and were  tent dwellers. In the camp the elder  gypsies can be heard speaking in .  strange tongue, for the real gypsy  speaks the Romany language, and the  parent's hearts are sad today because  their offsprin--. prefer speaking in  English. Roundthe *Zog' or fire over  which hangs' a blackened pot, which  generally contains a .rtew of rabbits  ,and vegetables culled from the neighboring fields, the 'chavvies' or children anxiously wait, while a dog of  the greyhound specie also waits ex-  pectedly to be rewarded, for bringing  his contribution to the family larder.  On the bushes hangs the family washing, while browsing on the coarse  grass so familiar to English common  land, a few horses and donkeys may  be seen All ttese things make an  int resting pictuxc of primitive life.  Some people have rather peculiar  ideas concerning gypsies. First of all  let me say that all gypsies are not  dark. As I visit the various camps  during mission, work I Snd hundreds  of fair gypsies. Originally the gypsies were' an eastern people but like  other people they have turned their  feet westward and climate with other  causes may have altered them considerably. My father wa. a thorough gypsy, but quite fair. In the  old days intermarriages with 'Gorgois  house dwellers, meant expulsion for  the offender from the tribe.  The Romany girl is betrothed at the  age of. fourteen, but at least two years  must elapse ere marriage shall take  place.      This is not a lime of court  Suffered  for  Years���������Triftd  ai!   Kinds  of Treatment���������Surprised at Results  From  Dr. Chase's Ointmant.  You can soon tell w'wen people are  enthusiastic about medical treatment  by the language they use. After experimenting with all sorts of ointments in a vain effort to obtain relief  and cure, the writer of this letter was  astonished at the quick and satisfactory results obtained by the use of Dr.  Chase's Ointment.  "It worked like magic," she writes.  Indeed, it is surprising the healing that  is often effected in a single night by  thia great ointment. ,JThe stinging  and itching are relieved at once, and  cure Is only a matter of time and patient treatment.  Mrs- Clements,-1: Strange street,  Toronto, Ont., writes: "I have suffered  from eczema ior years, and after using all kinds of ointments.- at last-tried  Dr. Chase's Ointmc nt.

If in a building which is isolated in the open country, or is high.tr  than surrounding buildings in a group  avoid chimneys or other flues, open  windows or draughts, especially warm  currents of air, directly below a high  tower or flag pole, peak or angle of  the structure. ^Keep away from overhead wires entering" a building, although these are generally protected  by lightning arresters, the current is  not always arrested.  If in the open, avoid -. trees, wire  fences or poles, and if -you happen  to be the most prominent object in  the landscape, as in ah open field or  on a beach, do not raise a steel rod  umbrella or in fact; any .umbrella, as  you may become a living lightning rod  without an approved ground connection. If you should happen to be  caught in such an open space with  lightning discharges coming very close J  as may be determined by the lessening'  intervals between flash and report, it  is better to lie flat on the **rowi4 *vn.fl  risk a soaking than to offer %. possible  path for a discharge. The reason for  this is that the body being warm, offers a better conductor tha<\ the surrounding air, and but a few feet rise  is . necessary to attract lightning on  flat ground.  Questionr as to "the action of lightning in striking a building are frequently asked and are somewhat diffi-  cut to answer, without going into a  lengthy discussion of the various kinds  of discharges and other matters of a  more or less technical nature. Let  us, however, take the most frequent  case, that of the ordinary forked  lightning, as seen at a distance which  : t clase range becomes the blinding  flash, with the accompanying instantaneous crash, often causiLg disastrous results to life and property. This  discharge is eaused by a difference of  potent'al betwoen earth and-cloud. The  one is heavily charged with positive  electricity, the other with negative,  with the air between acting as an insulator. If the air is sufficient to  keep apart the two currents, no discharge will take place except from one  cloud to another. Now, as the storm  moves on it comes closer to the earth  or meets some object in its path  which offers less resistance than the  air���������maybe a tree, pole, building, etc.  The electrical pressure is so - great  that the slight decrease in resistance  offered -by .-.uch object is sufficient to  cause the current to jump the inter-  Free Jr-dldt.8  In proportion to the? number of inhabitants there are very nearly as  many pianos and au'.omobiles in tho  towns of the old Cherokee nation in  the present state of Oklahoma as there  are In those of Vermont, or Delaware.

For this reason women are compelled  regretfully to watch the growing pallor  of their cheeks, the coming of wrinkles  and the thinness that becomes more  distressing every day. Every woman  knows that ill health, and worry is .i  fatal enemy to' beauty, and that good  health gives the plainest face aa enduring attractiveness.  What women fail to realize is the  fact that, if the blood supply is kept  rich and pure, the day of the coming of wrinkles, and pallor, dull eyes  and sharp headaches is immeasurably  postponed. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  are literally worth their weight in  gold to growing girls and women of  mature years. They fill the veins  with the rich, red blood that brings  brightness to -he eye, the glow of  health to sallow cheeks, and charms  away the headaches and backache that  render the lives of so many women  constantly miserable.  Mrs. William   Jones,    Crow    Lake,  Ont., says:  "I feel that Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills saved my life.      I was so  badly run, down that I could hardly  drag myself around.    I was so bloodless that I was as pale as a sheet, and  you could   almost   see   through   my  hands.   In fact the doctor told me my  blood had all turned to water.    I was  taking medicine constantly, but without benefit.     My mother had so much  faith in Dr. Williams* Pink Pills, that  jshe bought me two boxes and urged me  to take them.   How xhankful    I    am  that I followed   her advice.      tseiore j  these w^re gone I began to feel better,  and I continued using the. Pills  until I had taken five more boxes when  I was again enjoying the blessing of  perfect health, with a good color in my  face, a good appetite, aitd I feel sure  a new lease of life.      I will always,  you may be sure, be a -warm** frient!  of Dr- Williams' Pink Pills."  If you are weak or ailing begin to  cure yourself to-day with the rich red  blood Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actu-.:iy  make. If you do not find the Pills at  your dealer's send 50 cents for a box  or $2.50 for six boxes to the Dr. Williams' Medich-c Oo., Brcckville, Ont.,  and they will be sent you by mail,  post paid.

Sparkes, formerly on the Creston school staff, but who  are now located at Silverton, passed  through on Friday en route for their  old  home   in  Newfoundland,   where  j they will spend  their vacation.    Mr;  | Sparkes has taken the Silverton school  for another year.  Although the streams- hereabouts  are both too high and too muddy for  successful fishing, some creditable  catches are being made at Summit  Creek thes-e days. W. Embree came  home on Monday with a fine string of  rainbow and also three char each of  which were over the six-pound  mark.  Tho water on the flats began to recede the early part of the week and is  disappearing several inches a day so  far. The damage to tl e Wynndel  berry crop.is very much lighter than  at first feared. Prospects are for haying to start toward the end of August,  with assurance of a heavier crop than  last year.  The Women's Institute picnic on  Dominion Dayattx*acted a considerable  attendance, though not quite up to  the usual picnic average, due. no  doubt, to the busy berry season. A  quiet sociable afternoon was spent,  and as a result of the get-together two  more members were secured for the  organization.  T. H. Kay, editor of the Cranbrook  Herald, spent the week-end in Creston, the guest of The Review editor.  Tom always hod a pretty fair respect  ior vjrcsijGn s >>ort>c>tstnral possibilities  but when ho saw tho Wynndel strawberry crop he confided to Dick Bevan,  "With all your boosting, the half has  never been told."  The Ladies Guild dance in tho Parish  Hall on Friday evening last was a  splendid success financially and socially, the large number in attendance enjoying one of tho host hops of the season with a bounteous spread of refreshments, while the guild treasury will be  enlarged to tho extent of $80 after all  expenses are paid. Splendid music  was supplied by the Croston band and  orchestra.  J. J. Fingland, returned to Kaslo on  Saturday, after a special trip of inspection through the Valloy to in-  vcntlpcate the recent flood damii.gen.  The two bridges built between tho  Reclamation farm and Corn Creole  havo both suffered, Tho one ovor the  Hinall slough having shifted und hy  now pohnibly flooded out.. The other  is in more favorable shape and if the  water continues to fall can readily be  piit in Hlmpo again.  The last stocktaking was in 1911.  The first carload shipment of strawberries reported this year went out on  Saturday. It was billed to Winnipeg.  As the berries were picked after quite  a prolonged wet spell the long journey  militated against their reaching the  market in first-class shape. Another  carload was shipped the same city  yesterday.  .The strawberry export is getting  along toward mid-season proportions  bow. On Wednesday the eastbound  express was real close to being an  hour and three-quarters late. Owing  to the high water submerging the  wharves the loading at lake points is  both a precarious and long drawn  operation at present,  Word from Bramshott camp to  hand Wednesday states that A. Biddulph and Teddy Maione are now in  the fighting in France. No doubt  when the Allies commander learned  that these two Creston men were in  tht* l-anks he immediately gave the  word for the big British offensive now  on on the western front.  Mrs. Forrester is awarded the 1916  diploma for gathering the first boquet  of outdoor-grown sweet peas this season, the blooms attracting attention  at the Bishop Doull reception in the  Parish Hall on Tuesday night. These  are extremely early. In many gardens  the stringing-up process has only been  necessary within a very few days.  The annual school meeting is on the  programme for to-morrow, at the  schoolhouse, commencing at 10 o'clock.  Mrs. Mallandaine's term as trustee,  and also 'that of Dr. Henderson as  auditor, has expired. Thoso are the  only two vacancies to be filled. - The  year's budget will likely produce considerable discussion tis the meeting  will be asked to vote $4,000 for tho on-  **m*m^,ti***,,\*tmmm*\i*lmmmi*imm*m,**mmt*m**m\xii,\w\tm imn**itmum������mm**m**mim*mmimm*mi\n*t*w*x1  Land Registry Act  Section 24  In the matter of an application for  duplicate certificate of title No. 7C00F  issued to Jakob Cycak covering the  Southerly two-fifths of Lot Eight (8),  Block B, Subdivision of District Lot  Two Thousand and Thiity Sovon  (2037) Group Ono (1).
