 .-'-V  Vol. VIII.  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JUNE 2, 1916  JNO. 20  i  I  AS  I  1  ���������h?  The tug Errand Boy is handling the  booms at Duck Creek for J. S. Des-  champs while the Hercules is laid up  for repairs.  Messrs. Swanson and Loasby accompanied by a large party from Sirdar, visited Creston last Friday even-  5������iiV      4-.. !*���������*>���������������.o������     ������m      XX.*.      -Of*.  ...f^m     tftxxm.xxxgx,      **i      uia���������      xwct  minstrel show.  Rev. R. B. Pow of Creston conducted Presbyterian service here on Tues-'  day> night.  Mayor Lewis ol Lewis Island paid  Sirdar a business call on Monday.  Hans Haag was calling on friends here  the same day.  George Moth of Cranbrook was a  caller here on Tuesday.  Mesdames Loasby and Dennes were  Creston callers on Thursday. R. B.  Good and party were at the metropolis the same evening.  J. S. Deschamps of Nelson was here  last Friday, going on to Duck Creek  by motdr boat that evening.  Some fine catches of char are being  made in the riyer these days, in the  vicinity of the bridge.  the Fraser and Richardson ranches are  showing up fine. The cool, cloudy  May weather is just great for these  -this krout maker. Mr. Richardson is  also confident that his giant gooseberry bush that made the Valley record of four crates last year will  eclipse even its 1915 effort from present appearances.  A petition has been circulated, to  be presented to the government, asking that G-. M. Benney. road superintendent, be retained here until after  election���������a resolution having been put  through at the recent Tory convention  that the Kaslo riding super, be at  once placed in charge here. Mr.  Benney has always been fair to this  district, always endeavoring to do the  greatest, good for the greatest number  and keeping the roads in good shape.  Erickson will certainly lose a friend  when G. M. Benney transfers to Trail  riding.  Quite a lot of snow fell on the mountains east of Goat River em Sunday  night, giving that section a typical  middle-of-November appearance. Still  there are worse places than this���������a  C,P.R. conductor made the statement  at Erickson depot on Monday that  thie Crow's Nest country was coyer ed  by a deeper snow that the height of  the grass in this part, and it wasn't  Joe Jackson or Tom Caven, either.  Fred Hurry Has  Narrow Squeaks  Miss Wetherell, who has been a  guest of her sister, Mrs. J. M. Craigie,  for some months past, left for her  home in Toronto this week.  Sidinss  Mr. Cameron of Jaffray arrived here  on Thursday with a carload of effects  and will take charge of the Levesque  ranch which he has leased for two  years.  Cemgratulatiems ar** coming to The  Review and Manager Staples of the  Fruit Growers Union. The Growers'  Bulletin, as per last issue is a boon to  the growers. Keep it going, it's sure  a step in the right direction.  R. J. Long pulled out on Monday  for the Kaslo end of his constituency  to get acquainted with the electorate  and find out their needs in the legislative line.  Miss Annie Hamilton was a week-  <>D(1 visitor with friends in Yahk, returning on Sunelay,  Many Erickson ranchers started  setting out their tomato plants on  Friday of last week. It is figured that  the total number of plants for the  season will not be oyer 25,000 for the  entire district.  Roy Staples, not to be beaten in the  loss of his greenhouse tomato plants  thremgh mice and other cause's, plant-  ed about half an acre to seed cut in  the field and states that the plants  aro coming on fine���������much better than  itidnen- plants.  M. R. Palmer has quite a large patch  of early potatoes up and making a  nice showing and promise to be ready  foi use for July 12th at least.  G. and E. Cartwright arc taking  tho production and thrift campaign  seriously. About a month ago thoy  started stumping operations on a 10-  acre plot, utilizing their derrick stump  puller, and to-day thoy havo tho same  area plowed and mnch of it planted to  potatooH.  Teddy Hat-kino filled up the Leadbeater ranch with potatoes on Tuesday, utilizing his now planter on tho  job. Geo. Cartwright is giving tho  M. McLeod ranch similar  treatment.

Cabbage planted mvuic  time ago on  Some ripe wild strawberries were  gathered near the school the latter  pai-t of the week.  Andy Miller left on. Wednesday for  Cranbrook where he will act as forest  ranger this season in place of R. J.  Long, resigned, to run as Conservative  candidate in this riding.  Tbe.first fishing party of the season  comprised Messrs. Dick Smith, Geo.  Hood and Tom Midford, who were at  Summit Creek a couple of days this  week, though with very little good  luck.  Some more of the Alice concentrator  machinery is ^being taken out this  week and being loaded at Creston fox-  shipping to Kaslo where it will be  utilized in the old Kaslo reduction  plant which is being re-opened for  custom trade.  The clover crop this year will excel  the 1015 splendid yield from present  appearances as it is now somewhat  lemge.r anel not yet headed out as was  the case this time last year.  The Seddiers' Ladies Aid enjetyed  the hospitality of Mesdames Long and  Sutcliffe at. Demglas Villa on Wednesday afternoon. With such a gemd  cause, an ideal elay and popular hostesses there is no occasion to say  there was a good turnout and much  good work completed.  The attendance at the school is be  ginning to nIiow the usual summer  falling off. Thoso making pen-feet  attendadec during tho month of May  woro Theresa Churchill, Wilfrid Mason, Meirgan Pease, Roy Peasei, liuth  Smith and Gladys Stewart.  The members of tho ladies aid aro  looking forward with pleasure to tho  next meeting, on June 11th, at Mrs,  Compton's. at which tho hostess will  bo assisted by Mrs. Webster.  Fred Hurry, who is doing his bit  "somewhere in France," With the 3rd  Pioneers, has just been heard from���������  "just" is a good word, as things are a  bit too active to allow of any lengthy  correspondence, and When rest day  conies around the average fighter requires quite a slice of the spare time  to recuperate for the next session in  the trenches. Basil Keir, who was  reported wounded the early part of  April, appears to have been only  slightly inconyenienced as Fred reports him back at Work again prior to  May 5th, on which date his letter was  written, and which reads as follows;  Dear Dad���������  This is my rest day, and I am  using  the best part of   it to writing a few  letters.    Keir get back about a week  ago.   He has not got a scar from  the  shrapnel   wound he received several  weeks ago.    I ha,ve been in a few hot  plaees since I wrote you last and there  have been times when T thought I  was going to  "get mine."   Twice it  has happened   a man  near me got a  "blighty."   Last night a bullet struck  the road just two feet freim  me.    On  another   eiecasion   while ' putting   in  sheet iron on the sides of the trench a  bullet  passed   through   the sheet as  another chap and I   were lifting it up  to put it in behind a frarne.,   But it is  not necessary to  mention the many  narrow escapes a man has   here most  every day, and yet every body is looking happy and waiting for the day  when the big driye is to start.  It is fine weather here now. We  have a garden here but it is .not planted���������we have no seeds. The cherry  trees are in blossom. .Ther^ are. strawberry and rhubarb plants,' as well as  raspberry and gooseberry bushes.  Also a nice little flowergarden. Fritz  has not hit it since we have been here.  G. A. Hunt was a Creston caller em  Sunday.  Miss Adamson and Mr. Johnson  were Goatfell visitors on Sunday,  guests of Mr. and Mrs. Jeffery.  Mr. Kay of Wasa was an overnight visitor here on Sunday on account of the rain. He was on his way  to the mine fields, or any other country so long as he can find wen*k for his  team-.  Mr. Short of San Francisco, California was a Kitchener caller on Saturday in the interests of Mr. Hathaway, of Paulson & Hathaway.  Mrs, E.

Crest-on was favored with another  honeymoon   couple last week in  Mr.  and Mrs.   Gardner  of   Calgary   wl o I  spent part of their wedding tour see- |  ing the sights of the Creston Valley,  guests at the King George.  Andy Miller left on Wednesday for  Cranbrook to take up the work of  forest fire rariger-in the-place of-R. J.  Long, resigned. Andy.is on temporarily, there being no official confirmation of his appointment.  Verily truth is stranger than fiction.  Even the urbane Joe Jackson was  caught off guard with it on Tuesday  when Mayor Little naively observed  to the master of 513, "Say, Joe, he>\v's  the sleighing in Cranbrook to-day."  Commencing yesterday the Creston  hotels in common with those all over  the province went on to the new  shorter hours regulations in connection with the bar trade. Now the  bars are open only from 12 a.m. to 11  p.m.  There is not much activity in mad  work yet, a few men being employed  at odd repairs that require immediate  attention. Money is, apparently, be-  ing conserve*! until it is seen exactly  what damage high water will do. If  it comes down with the expected rush  some extensive re-pairs are liable to be  necessary.  American tourists have commenced  to invade B.C., travelling by motor  over the highway leading from the  south. ���������"  '  Messrs.

Among those from here who took  in the minstrel show on Friday evening were Mr. and Mrs. W, Carver, Mr.  and Mrs. F. Waylett, Mrs. H. White  and daughters, W. Johnson and J.  Broderick.  A story is going the rounds that  after securing the nomination at Kaslo  on the 24th of May, R. J. Long called  em his political opponent, John Keen,  and as they parted R. J. extended his  hand, saying "Well, Je>hn, lucre's hoping the best man wins." To which  John retorted, "In that case, Bob, I  will be defeated."  The hay crop in Canyon City section  will be the heaviest yet from present  appeai-ances.  Rev. J. S. Mahex-d t>f. Queen's Bay  was a visitor with Mr. and Mrs.  Campbell Blair on Saturday last.  So much  wet weather lately is making progress on the new bridge slower  than usual and it will  he almost July  1st before it will  be  open fe>r  traffic.  The   report   is afloat, that   the   new  structure  will be known  as MacKay  bridge, after the former member feu-  the Kaslo   riding.    Should a Liberal  government,    however,   be   i-eturne-d  the title wemlel likely  be  changed to  Reid, Reise or Harris.  middleton Ranch Said  W. B. Gilray of Etzikem, southern  Alberta, who came in here lemking for  a ranch on Monday, picked up just  extactly what' ho was wanting on  Wednesday, when ho purchased tho  LS-acro Middleton ranch across the  river from R. Lamont. Mr. Gilray  has recently disposed of his farming  equipment in Alberta, and intends  moving on to his Creston property  within n few wee-lew.

Anna  Hagen was at the capital yesterday.  A dance will be helel in the clubhouse on Saturday, June 3rd, ceun-  mene-ing at 0 p.m. All arrangements  are in the hands e>f the ladies and it  is assumed the affair will assume the  nature e>f a leap yeardancei. Any wny,  a goenl time is assured, anel everyone  is invited.  Mrs. May  received  word on  Wednesday from  Ottawa that  her   husband,   Pte.   Frank   May,    had   been  wounded in the hand on May 10th anel  had boen admitted to Ne>. 15   casualty  clearing   hemse.    Letters    from   Pte.

Wheat 4,000 Years Old  Came   From   Ruins   In   Egypt,   But   is  Kept   in   Texas  When Lhe late Johu Cardwell of  Austin, Tex., was United states consul at Cairo, Kgyot, he sent to his  old friend. Col. F. P. Holland, of  Dallas, a small quantity of wheat,  that he had taken from the tomb of  one of the ancient kings in newly explored ruins upon the banks of the  Nile.  This wheat was known to be more  than 4.000 years old. The glass container- which holds the grain is lu-r-  ractio.ally sealed. To all outward -ip-  pearances the wheat is just ns sound  as the day it was tlayed from iho  head in the long ago, when the earth  was inhabited by a civilixatiou that  is now forgotten. The grains are  plump and large.  "1 havo been told that the grains  would probably germinate it" planted,  but I have never tried any of them."  Col.   Holland  said.  One of the- eouuuonest complaints  of infants is worms, and the most effective ap''iication for '.hem is "Mother   -.'.raves'   Worm    Kxt.ermh.ator.  Superstition increasing in Germany  The Munich correspondent of the  Berliner Tageblatt describes the recent prosecution of various types of  occultists who have driven a flourishing trade 'luring tho war. Astrologers, soothsayers and palmists have  reaped a golden harvest. A gigantic  industry has been built. upon tho  superstitions of the people, and the  adepts in various towns aro in touch  with each other and with a central  organisation.

Ask  your neighbors for the  proof.  $6.40 For Penny Paper  A Belgian banker who has been  permitted by the German administration to come to Paris on business  connected with relief work, states  that the thief luxury of life in Brussels ia the purchase of London and  Paris newspapers, which can be had  easily if one will pay the exorbitant  price demanded.  Tho Times of London is worth 32  francs t$6.40), the Temps of Paris  22 t?4.40), the Matin of Paris 2d ($4)  and the other French papers 18  ($;'..GO). The penalty for being caught  with one of these papers is not severe  and  is    usually  not enforced against  , persons    of    good   standing,  but the  has , penalty     for   "the  agency   which   dis-  j tributes    the    papers  would be very  severe.

Jane, a well  naval     historian,   who  was  Uio  writer of tbe  fcle:  "Mad we spent every mark in tbe  same way that yon English spent  every shilling, our fleet would be as  big as yours.*'  So saiel to me a German naval officer not long before the war, and  "he was literally true. German naval estimates bave nominally never  equalled British ones; but the sura  total expended on sbi"s find coast  defenses in the two countries was  for years about tbe same.  The result, of course, is different.  Acting on a thousand years of experience, Ave, who are a naval people first, and military afterward, put  1!) shillings in the pound on ships,  and the remainder on shore defenses  at a few essential places.  Our argument (its exponents are  known as the "Blue Water School")  was, and is, that if you have ships  enough to prevent the enemy leaving  harbor, it is waste-of money to build  forts to defend a coast which he cannot attack. We have, of course, certain defenses at certain places, but  these come mainly under the head  of precautions eigainst oild raiders  who might chance to elude our blockade.  The Germans, on the other hand,  are primarily soldiers. "Soldiers at  sea," tliey used to be called, and the  Roughly,   their  summed up as  phrase     is   correct,  original policy can be  follows: ���������  "We liave only a very small coast  line, and its waters are shallow. It  is easily made impregnable. We  therefore, need no navy to speak of."  This in its day was ruiite correct.  But presently there came a time  when ihe German merchant marine  expanded and the Kaiser���������maybe  fancying himself very much in the  uniform of an honorary British admiral of the fleet���������conceived naval  ambitions.  For aught I know, something one  can read in any old navy list may  also have started him off. The statement I speak of is in the alphabetical list of names, and two of these,  one following the other, run:  German. James L. H., Fleet Paymaster, seniority, 5th November,  1901.  German Emperor and King of  Prussia, His ' Imperial Majesty William II.. K.G., G.C.V.O., Hon. Admiral  of the Fleet, 2nd August, 1898.  One can never tell, alphabet or no  alphabet, how the "All Highest"  would take the fact that common  clay in the- person of the editor of  the Navy List put on top of Him another "bit of common clay. There is  no saying how far a blameless old  F.T>. (Fleet Paymaster) may, on account of his godfathers and godmothers having given him a name which  alphabetically precedes W. have unwittingly contributed to the present  groat war.  I write this perfectly seriously. I  have met the Kaiser and spoken to  nim more than once. It was he who  pointeel out to me the thing quoted  above. He made no ' comment beyond drawing my attention to the  British Navy List. Then he laugh-  eel that laugh which once heard is  never forgotten. It was long ago,  nnel in those days lie was our dear  friend.  Be all this, however, as it may,  the Kaiser himself conceived the idea  of a powerful German lleet. and talked largely of "Our future lies on the  water."  To his.

Any tourist could  see this defense being placed. 1 myself watched one being- got into position. Whether or no they are still  there I do not know. But it really  does not matter, for the simple-reason that being fixed defenses any attacker would carefully keep clear of  theni.  Behind' all these defenses lies the  German fleet. These defenses I call  the Kaiser's folly. They must one way  and another have cost as much as  would 30 dreadnoughts and their necessary auxiliary ships, and nearly  every farthing an utter waste of  money.  For there are two things which the  Germans overlooked. Of these, the  first is that if our fleet keeps the  German dreadnoughts in the Kiel  Canal, these German dreadnoughts  might just as well be there as under  the water. They cannot do any mischief; in either case.  And the second thing is that to  build a lot of dreadnoughts just to  lie secure behind impregnable fortifications is merely an expenditure in  dreadnoughts suggestive of a lunatic  asylum. Of what use the dreadnoughts?  Of course, the Germans trusted to  a "Der Tag," when in one way and  another they would by "attrition"  have destroyed enough of our dreadnoughts for theirs to be able to come  out and offer battle. But here again  was sheer fatuity���������an assumption  that Admiral Jeliicoe and the British  navy were born fools unable to think  of precautions.  However, it is riot for us to complain. Britannia rules the waves,  and what the Kaiser's dreadnoughts  do behind    his vast defenses matters j  frv      **��������������� ���������"-.i** o      r\P     nta      en     lnno*      QC      Tito      l/'OCvn  to  Llu* A������\y������������.V/ *-* A.

That these ships coulel  have been nursed for a tiny fraction of the actual expenditure on  that nursing, that the money spent  on that protection would have produced a fleet capable of meeting ours  on numerically equal terms, is not  our concern now.

It   is  not difficult to see a parallel in Germany today.    The heart of a country  is no longer the    vital    centre  of a  nation.    This    is to  be  found  solely  in the heart of a nation. Armies can  no longer  be  detached from  the nation.    They  are  the nation,  and  the  spear must quiver anel fail when the  civilian   shank  Aveakens  anel   wavers.  Therein   lies     Germany's     oversight.  She    did    not  visualize  a  long  war.  She   had   no   comprehension   of   how  the     country   and   its   people   would  react*    to    a    long  anel   increasingly  stringent   blockade.     The     war-wear-  iness  which  bites  deeply  into  every  heart   grows   intolerable   to   German  people who eat no meal that lias not  its  seasoning of an  enemy's  sea supremacy.     If     the   face   of   the   war  bears  a double  look at  us,  it seems  equally so to a people who have been  encouraged    for    so  long  with    the  promise  of speedy victory.  Only  the  irresponsible have held out that hope  to the allies.    When we tend to look  askance  upon  a  war  of  attrition,  it  is well to remember that if Napoleon  was    not  beaten  by  it,  he   was   not  beaten  without it.    When the enemy  makes   a   new   advance,     we    must  not take it to moan that, be lias still  a  propondorlng force.

The government committee on the  treatment in Germany of British prisoners of war, of which the Hon. Mr.  Justice Younger is chairman* has issued a report on the conditions  vailing- in the Wittenberg camp during the typhus epidemic of last year.  The report is based on information  from repatriated prisoners, and especially* from Major Priestley, Captain  Vidal and Captain Lauder, of the array  medical corps, who were sent to the  camp shortly after the outbreak of  the epidemic, and who were recently  released from Germany. The three  officers named are the only survivors  of six British doctors sent to the  Wittemberg camp by the Germans "tc  take up," says the report, "the place  of duty abandoned by their own medical staff when the presence of typhus  mii_ j iiiaiiii.esLeu . ilseu..  The records of the epidemic kept by  the British officers were taken from  them before their departure from Germany, but the report gives in detail  the condition of the camp and. the  treatment of prisoners and patients,-  whicli the United States ambassador,  James W. Gerard, in his report last  November, said was "even more unfavorable than I had been led to expect."  According to the released officers  there are 15,000 and sometimes more  prisoners in the camp, which the committee says ''is an enormous population for so restricted an area as ten  and a half acres." Tliere were no  proper heating arrangements and the  men were insufficiently clothed, their  overcoats having been taken from  them, their other clothing being in  rags. Many had neither boots nor  socks. There was an insufficient, supply of water and soap, anel Major  Priestley says he found the men  "gaunt, of a peculiar gray paler and  vermihou.s"  The supply of food wa,s also insufficient, even in the hospital, until supplies arrived from  England.  - "The   only  provision    for  personal  cleanliness made    for the men." says  the report,    "was  one cupful of soft  soap     issueu   at   intervals   Oi   many  weeks  to   a  room   containing  120.  In  consequence, the men became increasingly  verminous,   and   that  condition,  coupled with cold and want of proper  nourishment,   was   undoubtedly     tlhe  principal   inducing  cause   of the  epidemic."  The epidemic broke out in December, 1914. "Thereupon," says the report, "the German staff, military and  medical, precipitately left the camp  anel thenceforth until August, 1915,* no  communication was held between the  prisoners and their guards, except by  means of directions shouted,from the  guards or officers remaining outside  the wire entanglements.  "All supplies for tho men were pushed into the canip over chutes. No  medical attention during the whole  time was provided by the Gorman  staff."  Captain Laurer reports that, while  in the bungalow, there Avas normally  one ma-Ltress for three men, in the improvised hospitals there being no mattresses at all.  "In consequence," he says, "there  were many typhus patients scattered  over the compounds who woro determined not to come into the hospital  if they could  help it."  In one compound ho found r.O hidden cases of typhus during the first  month.  The food ration for oach patient  was half a petit pain (roll) and half a  cup of milk per day. Tho only soup  obtainable came  chon. and, as it  wooden tubs, it  dirt.  "In I ruth," says the committee's report, "tho ration was not n ration at  nil. It. was a pretense. It was uot  even possible to givo the patients  warm water with their milk."  Four British doctors were infor-tod  and three died. It wnn then Major  Priestley and Captain Vidal went to  the ho-splti'il to join Captain Lauder,  who wus down with tho typhus. Major  Priestley says that the patients, nlivo  with vermin, lay so close to one another on tlio door thut ho bad to  stand straddle-log across thr-m to  examine them. There wore other conditions thnt aro indescribable, There  was diffi''iiHy In obtaining sufficient  drugs and dreti-'ing for a long lime  and extreme bod sorea wore common.

After the middle of April the conditions commenced to improve aud  with the arrival of warm weather the  cases rapidly decreased, and by the  middle of May all the British were  convalescent. Adequate provision was  made to deal with any future outbreaks, improvements being effected,  according to the committee, as a result of the visits of Ambassador Gerard and members of his staff.  The committee condemn the retention of Dr. Aschenbach as head of the  camp and as evidence of his attitude  cite an incident. When one of his  staff -supported the request of Captain  Lauder for medical requisitesj, he  curtly refused the request, with the  words, "Schwein Englander."  The report continues:  "The cruelty of the administration  of the Wittenberg camp became notorious. Savage dogs were habitually  employed to terrorize the prisoners  and flogging with a whip was frequent.  Alen were struck with little or no  provocation, and tied to posts with  hands above their heads for hours.  Captain Lauder reported that many of  these men went so far as to look on  the typhus, with all its horrors, as a  Godsend. They preferred it to the  presence  of  German  guards."  Gain From Cow Testing  Held   to   be   Largely   Responsible  for  Improvement   in   Quality  The  keeping of dairy records  was  started   in   Canada   about    1901   and  at    that  time   the   average   yield   of  milk per cow was 2,850 pounds. The  number  of  record   entries  has   Been  gradually increasing and  bo has the  milk production.    By  1911 the average   production     had " increased  to  S,805 pounds,    or an increase of 955  pounds per cow.    This does not seem  much  but  the   figures   begin   to  look  impressive     when    we   consider   the  number of cows kept,    m 1911 there  were   2,594,174   cows,   an   increase  of  185,502 compared with the census of  1901.     The   increase   in   the   number  of   cows   during   the   ten   years   was  only   7   per  cent.,  but   the  total   increased    production    for    the    same  period  was  43  per cent.  The keeping and  study of records  is     held     to   be  largely  responsible  for the  improvement  in  quality  and  vieAv  of  the   excellent  results   it  regrettable   that   more   dairymen  not   keep   tab   on   the  individual  production   of    his   cows.     It   costs  a  little  in  time  and  money,    but  it  is   time   and   money     well   invested.  Without   considering    the    increased  number of cows    the production wes  still   increased  during  this period to  the value of about $25,000,000.    This  is  sufficient  to  warrant  considerable-  time being spent on testing.  in  is  do  from the camp kit-  was brought in open  was full of dust and  Hog Pastures  Pigs  make  the  cheapest  gains   on  pasture.

CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JUNE 2  Unless successful candidates at  the forthcoming provincial election  are returned by quite decisive  majorities it will be a bit premature for the victors to do any  election-night celebrating, in view  of the government's deciison to  give B.C. troops overseas an opportunity to vote at this election.  Quite elaborate arrangements  are being made to see that the  en-erseas polling is honestly done  aud that the ballots are honestly  counted in the presence of scrutineers of all parties intei-ested.

B.C.'s most notable success along  this line would appear to be at  Summerland, in the Okanagan,  where they have a four-teacher  school, with a university graduate  as principal, and two of the other  teachers holding first-class certificates. To this school the government last year granted $1,061.00  for conveying children to school.���������  This, of course, is a side issue in  the municipality-organization discussion, but at the same time calls  attention to a phase of municipal  life that attracts just a little more  favorable view of the benefits  attending the formation of even a  rural municipality.  m  m ^*^  ������������������������-3   -^^  9  jIF^S I  Although the war has serioubly affected the prices on all grades of boots and shoes we have  been particularly fortunate in onr purchases of footwear this season, securing lines  several of the foremost makers which we now offer at prices that, quality  considered, cannot be excelled by the catalogue houses.

Editor Reeiew:  Sib,���������1 have been instructed by  toe executive board of the Creston  District Conservative ��������� Association' to  write you for the put-pose of removing  certain misunderstandings that have  arisen, and resulted in the circulation  of a petition for the reinstatement of  G. M. Benney as road superintendent  in the Creston district.  Exception seems to haye been taken  to a resolution of the central executive at Kaslo requesting the minister  of public works to place Mr. Fingland  in charge of the work in the Creston  district on the first day of June. This  has been represented as a reflection on  Mr. Benney, and from the language  of the petition that it has resulted in  his losing a position to which he is entitled. The board desires the real  state of facts to be put before the  public which are as follows:  In the session  of the  legislature of  1915 a redistribution act was  passed  altering   the   boundaries    of   ridings  throughout the province to take effect  as soon as the house was dissolyed.  So that it has been known to every  one for over a year that as soon as the  house did dissolve that the boundaries  'of the ridings would be changed,  that  members of   the   Legislature   would  represent either more or less territory  as the case might be, and that all road  superintendents and returning officers  wonld have the territories altered over  which   their respective jurisdictions  extend.   One of the changes made by  the   redistribution act   removed   the  Creston district from the Ymir riding  and added it to   the Kaslo riding,   so  that by law on  the first day of June  our member is Mr.  MacKay and not  Mr. Schofield; our road superintendent  is Mr. Fingland  and   not Mr.  Benny;  and our returning officer is at Kaslo  and not at Trail.    It is utter nonsense  to say that these changes,   which are  made all over the province, are any  reflection on  or compliment to any  official affected.    As far as Mr. Benny  is concerned he is still the road superintendent of the Ymir riding, he   will  draw the same salary and will not in  future haye so much territory to look  after; in other words for the same pay  he will have to do less work���������a change  that most people would not quarrel  with.  Then then is another angle to the  situation that should be considered.  When we become a part of. the Kaslo  riding it is to the interest of the district as far as possible to work harmoniously with the rest of the riding..  Our experience with the Kaslo people  has se> far been very pleasant. It must  be remembered that the majority of  the votes are in the old Kaslo riding  and if they wanted to play the hog  they could vote us down on any proposition. They could have nominated  a man from Kaslo as canelidate in  spite of our teeth but they voted unanimously for Mr. Long. And in  every way up to the present time they  have displayed iin unselfish spirit and  a sympathetic consideration for the  special interest of the Creston district.  Would it not be an ungrateful return,  I may go further and say an unwarranted iiiuult, for thu people of  this district to try to keep Mr. Fingland out of'territory in which he is the  legal road superintendent, and single  him out from all the road superintendents in the province for such  ticatmcnt. If he is competent at all,  anel we have no right to assume the  contrary until it is proven, he is just  as well able to inko charge e>f the work  here on the first (lay of June as he  woulel be in July, or August, or October or next year. The central as-  sociatiem in passing the .ic'solutiem in  question had no thought of censuring  e>r injuring Mr. Itenny. Their idea  was to stir up the minister e>f public  works to give orders te> tho Kaslo  road Huparinteineleiit so that, the* public  works for which moneys have boon  appropriated this yoar for tho Croston  district, could bo begun at ns early a  date ns possible.

The rank spitefulness of the  motion has not the flavor of either the  mover or seconder of it but the prevailing is that fche motion originated  in the stunted brain of an interested  party follower.

"1 got the gun and the  Maxim silencer thing off a fence in  Boston," he explained. "Say, that  thing cost me $60, aad it's worth every  cent of the money. Why, they'll remember me as the first to spring one  of them tilings, won't they?"  "They sure will, Joel" the inspector  conceded.  "Nobody knew I had H," Garson continued, dropping his braggart manner  abruptly.  At the words. Mary started, and her  lips moved as if she were about to  (���������peak.  "Nobody knew 1 had it���������nobody in  tho world." he declared. "And nobody had anything to do with the killing but me."  "Was there any bad feelings "between vou and Eddie Griggs?"  "Never till that vory minute. Then  ] learned the truth about what he'd  framed up with you." The speaker's  voice reverted lo its former fierceness  ��������� in recollection of the treachery of one  whom he had trusted.  "He was a stool pigeon, and I hated,  him!    That's al!, ami it's enough. And  it's oil true, so help me God!"  The inspector nodded    dismissal  to  the stenographer, with an air of relief.  "Thai's all. Williams," he said heavily.    "He'll  siirii  ii   as  soon  as  you've  t;\.:.:'cri!icd  the  notes."

"immense!" Garson cried boisterously. He moved toward Dick Gilder, walking with a faint suggestion of  swagger to cover the nervous tremor  that had  seized him.  "So long, young fellow," he exclaimed and held out his hand. "You've  been on the square and I guess you  always   will   be."  Dick had no scruple in clasping that  extended hand very warmly in his  own.  "We'll do what''we can for you," he  said simply.  "That's all right," Garson replied,  with such carelessness of manner as  he could contrive. Then at last he  turned to Mary, This parting must be  bitter, and he braced himself with all  the vigor of liis will to combat the  weakness that leaped from his soul.  As lie came near the girl could hold  hold herself in leash no longer. She  threw herself on his breast. Her  arms wreathed about his neck. Great  sobs   racked   her.  "Oh, Joe, Joe!" The gasping cry was  of utter despair.  Garson's trembling hand patted the  girl's shoulder very softly, a caress of  infinite tenderness.  "That's all right." he murmured  huskily. "That's all right, Mary."  There was a short silence, and then he  went on speaking more firmly. "You  know, he'll look after you."  He looked up over tho girl's shoulder and beckoned with his head to  Diekf who came forward.  "Take good care of her, won't: you?"  He disengaged himself gently from  the girl's embrace and set her within  the arms or her husband, whore she  rested quietly, as if unable to  longer against rate's decree.  "Well, so long!"

A   chief   cause   for   the     relatively  small   proportion     of     Saskatchewan  school  children  that are  receiving  a  secondary   education   is   irregular   attendance   in   the   elementary   grades.

Of our  commissioners, not less than s:-}8 are  on service, and of these, seven have  fallen in action.  We have between 25,000 and 30,-  000 of our members serving with the  colors. These generally have won a  most gratifying name for the military  value of the Scouts' training, as well  as individual honor for themselves  (including one V.C.); but it is only  natural that out of such a force we  should have to deplore the loss of a  very large number of promising young  comrades. They have, however, done  well. Their sacrifice is not. thrown  away. Their splendid example has  set a standard for others to follow,  and is vitalizing a living memorial  to themselves in tho form of an efficient,   duty-bound,   young   citizenhood.

SPRING REMINDERS  OFRHEUMATISM  Raw, Damp Weather Starts the  Pains - But the Trouble Lies  In the Blood  Spring weather is bad for rheumatic  sufferers.

But it must be borne  in mine that it is not the weather that  causes   rheumatism.     The   trouble   is  rooted in  the  blood���������the  changeable  weather merely starts the pains. The  only way to reach the trouble and to  cure it is through the blood. The poisonous rheumatic acids must be driven  out.   Liniments and rubbing may give  temporary relief, but cannot possibly  cure   the   trouble.     The   sufferer   is  only  wasting  time   and   money   with  this  kind   of  treatment   and   all   the  time  the  trouble   is   becoming   more  deeply rooted���������harder to cure.   There  is ju3t one speedy cure���������Dr. Williams'  Pinlc Pills.    They act directly on the  impure, acid-tainted blood. They purify and  strengthen   it  and  thus  root  out the cause of the rheumatism. Here  is   strong  proof  of  the   above   statements.

In   Canada     we   might   fight,   among  her ways, by keeping our production of necessaries up to the highest  point and by conserving our resources. One of the most valuable resources is our forest wealth. Timber  will be in demand to rebuild ruined  Europe and to carry on our own development, made more strenuous by  the war. If all our forests were to  burn down our enemies would be delighted. It would mean the crippling  of Canada. Are Canadians going to  do anything to delight their enemies?  If you who go into the forests do not  desire this then do your part iu  keeping down forest fires this spring  and summer by seeing that your camp  fi.ro is drencheu with water, and  that you do not carelessly toss away  burning matches or cigar or cigarette  stubs before they are fully extinguished:' Every acre of forest burned  makes it that much harder for the  empire to win the war and delays to  that extent otir development after the  war.

The first of the Creston 1916  f4at.m-fl!  lettuce  went out on Saturday, and tho es-  port of this and green onions will be  very small this year, there being  practically no demand for onions in  particular. An occasional box of  rhubarb goes out, but these are rather  few and far between, due to an overstocked market.  Colville Joe, a real oldtimer of the  local Indians, was* translated to the  happy hunting grounds the latter  part of the week, Joe was a sort of  specialist in mining claims until recently, his long suit being to guide  prospectors to what he always claimed were the best ore prospects in this  part of Kootenay.

Mahood, rector of Christ  Church, Creston, is now putting on  the market another of his musical  compositions, a vocal number, "The  Empire of the Seas." It is a right  good nautical and patriotic selection  set to music that is decidedly impressive and yet with a popular twist that  should make the piece a winner with  all classes of music lovers.  Messrs. Hcald and Walmsley who  have been at Duck Creek and Sirdar  for the past couple of weeks checking'  out the Winlaw timber sold to J. S,  Deschan.ps of Nelson, returned on  Sunday.
