 4  ritfg^11^6  tiibra^y  ti:  f A s-  Vot.. VTTT  CRESTON. B.C., FRIDAY, JULY 14, 1916  No. 26  ^Sr  School Meeting  Votes But $3,000  Although the annual school meeting  on Saturday morning attracted a total  attendance of less than a dozen all  told the session was by. no means devoid of interest, the chief of which  centered around financial matters  generally in connection with school  affairs. Incidentally, the decision to  reject the trustees; request for $4,000  for school purposes this year led to  the resignation of Trustee Hurry, and  the gathering had toeiecttwo trustees  in place of one, along with an auditor.  Although pressed to stand for reelection Mrs. Mallandaine refused to  accept the honor for another term,  and her place on the board will be  taken by W. H. Crawford, while Jas.  Cherrington was chosen to serve out  Trustee Hurry's unexpired term of  one year. These, with P. H. Jackson,  will constitute the school board for  the next 12 months, with Dr. Henderson re-elected auditor.  There was the usual trouble to secure a chairman for the meeting, but  the honor was finally thrust upon T.  M. Edmondson, and C, F. Hayes  chosen secretary. After the minutes  of the previous annual meeting had  been read and adopted and the  treasurer's statement similarly disposed of, the amount to be raised for  school purposes was broached. The  estimated finance required for the  current, year is as follows :  $3,000 and that he did  not care to  have another term of it,  The chairman and Mr. Cherrington  pointed out that their demand for  only a $3000 uote was not a vote of  want of confidence in the trustees,  but they felt it was time the district  came to a showdown with the education department and that the argument might as well come this year as  next, or any other year.  The teachers' salaries remain the  same as last year and are as follows:  Principal $105, vice-principal $80  Division III. $70, and the primary  room $80 in case Miss Hardman returns. Should she not come back the  old salary of $70 will be paid.  If the government insists on making  advances to the trustees on the same  principle as last year, and the new  trustees carry out their determination  to not borrow money. Creston's educa-:  tional affairs pi*omise to be decidedly  interesting. There is enough money  on hand to pay salaries to the end of  July, but after that it will be a case of  borrow or close the school���������or induce  the staff to work without pay until  the new year, as it was well into January of this year before it was possible  to secure funds from Victoria. By  borrowing on the personal note of two  of the trustees things were kept going,  but the new trustees stoutly affirm  they will not borrow under any consideration this term.

The glad tidings were heard with  immense satisfaction on every hand  as the berries went out at the tail  end of last week's wet spell and  many had their doots as to the  berries being able to stand up  under such a long trip.  To not only lay them down in  good shape, but to be told they  were the finest fruit the Scott  people have had at Winnipeg,  which is a favorite market for  Ontario berries, is a pretty sure  sign that strawberries and more  strawberries is a pretty safe investment for "Valley ranchers.  If it is  -possible to get on   to the  Perhaps a fair summary of the situation would be to say that our production has reached so large a quantity  that we cannot hope to again secure  higher net returns for our berries than  other large berry-growing districts  get. In addition to this large production our prices will be reduced to  at least some extent by berries arriving ih poor condition.  Actual sales have been made for  practically all shipments at the following prices:  Up to July 1���������$2.75 per crate in  small lots. $2.50 per crate to wholesalers taking 25 or more crates.  Up to July 8���������$2.50 per crate small  lots.   $2.25 per crate to wholesalers.  Week commencing July 8���������$2.25  per crate small lots. $2.00 per crate  to  wholesalers.  These prices are well above that being secured by other districts, and indicate that onr selling agency is  handling the situation satisfactorily.  Rossland Forger  Nabbed at Sirdar  Kitchener.  Miss Ruby Hamilton, who has been  visiting Mrs. G. A. Hunt, left for her  home at Carlpton Place, Ont., on  Monday.  N. Winlaw of Kelson was a Kitchener visitor the latter part of the week.  J. J. Fingland, Kaslo, superintendent of roads, was here looking oyer  the highways on Wednesday.  Sergt. M.cMurray of the 223rd Battalion (alias Sergt. Robinson of the  I94th), who was here two weeks ago  presumably to secure recruits for the  233rd, was here again for a couple of  days this week, but on an entirely  different errand���������being detained at  the provincial jail Wednesday and  Thursday awaiting tbe arrival of  Police Chief Devitt from Rossland, at  which point McMurray is wanted on a  charge of foi-gery.  The offence was committed on Saturday, but it was not discovered that  the cheque was worthless until Tuesday, when an information was laid  and the police through the Crow and  Boundary country wired to be on the  lookout for the culprit. Capt. Forrester was in Kitchener on official business when the wire reached here at  noon Tuesday and did not return until  late that afternoon, when he immediately got busy, diseovering that the  needed gentleman had been at Sirdar  that afternoon. R. S. Bevan and his  Ford were commandeered and a quick  trip to Sirdar was commenced. The  auto party reached that point just as  an eastbound freight was pulling out  and surmising he was liable to be diking passage on it police officer Fori-es-  Total Receipts    $2,682 41  .

A carload of U;ucks has arrived.  What with the lumber hauling, sawmill and box factory running full  blast, a crew engaged clearing land,  to say nothing of about 60 acres of  hay ready to cut, things in these parts  were never quite so humming as they  are right now.  Mrs. A. R. Swanson and children of  Sirdar are guests of Mrs. H, White.  Postmaster Gibbs and R. S. Bevan  of Creston were on a motor trip  through here on Sunday. Dick says  that Canyon City roads are. the best  in the Valley, which is saying a good  deal when it is remembered that five  teams make three round trips a day  hauling about three thousand feet of  lumber each load. R. S is strong for  good roads and will surely be numbered among the supporters for R. J.  Long, the resident candidate, who  will see to it that all the Kaslo riding  road money is spent to the best advantage.  The as-usual postponed school meeting is called for Saturday night aft 8  o'clock in the schoolhouse.  The electric storm last Saturday  night was the worst of the season.  No damage of any sort is reported,  though the heavy rainfall had a tendency to Hand the strawberries a bit.  J. McRobb is on tho harvesting staff  of tho future M.P.P. for Kaslo, helping tako off the heavy hay crop that  is noticeable on the Woodbine Ranch.

Up till yesterday six straight  cars of berries have gone, five to  Winnipeg and one to Calgary.  This week will about se** the oeak  of the season, though quantities of  strawberries will be going out for  at least 10 days longer.  Wednesday night's rain will  tend to lengthen out the harvest  and there is every assurancn that  early season estimate of 16,000  crates for the Valley will be possibly a couple of thousand crates  under the actual export trade.  \.

A Comparison in Casualties
In less than two years Germany bus
lost in battle over five times as many
soldiers as the.Union lost in four years
of the Civil War. Northern lossra
were 1)7,000 killed in battle and 43.000
who died of wounds, making a total
of 110,000 killed. The German killed
amount to 664,000. Since the Kaiser
has only about three times as large
a population to draw upon as had
Abraham Lincoln, and as he is losing
men in battle over ten times as fast,
the ratio of Germany's daily loss to
population is more, than three time-*,
as great as wns the loss of the Northern States. But Germany is not allowing s-o many men to die of disease an
did the United States. Disease took
199,000 Union soldiers, or upward of
double as many as were taken .by Confederate bullets.���Philadelphia Ledser.

Macdonald, of Toronto, Tell the American People Why  Canada is Engaged in the War, and Makes a Plea for the  Preparedness of American Mind and Conscience    o '  ^TtTy pica is i'or the preparedness  of the American mind, of the American conscience, of the American vill,"  was ihe declaration of Dr. J. A. Macdonald to a mass meeting under the  auspices of the Presbyterian General  Assembly held at Atlantic City recently. Ho spoke i'or more, than an hour  in the interc.**t of colleges and universities ������*.nd their part in the world conflict of ideas. References to Canada's  part in the. conflict in Europe were  cheered.  Wh.it saves this world war from being', in the eyes even of a Canadian,  an     unredeemed     and     undisguised  brutality is that, more than any of the  great- wars ot history, it is a struggle  not for territory but for freedom, for  the freedom of the soul, for the ideals  of   liberty:   a   struggle   for   the   right  of a free people to govern themselves,  and for equality of opportunity for the  little kingdoms and the small nationalities:   a' .struggle  for  the  right  to  a  place iu  the  sun. not for the  Great  Powers alone, Britain and France and  Germany and Russia, but for Belgium  and Denmark    and    Holland and the j  jSeandinavian   countries    and   Greece !  and the Balkan States, that they, too, {  as freely and  securely as their larger !  neighbors, may  each  ho free  to  live |  their  own   life,   to  cherish  their  ideals, and to make their distinctive,  contribution to the civilization and  freedom of the world. For anything  less noble Canadians, too, ought to be  too proud to fight. But for anything  more worthy none, of the heroes and  patriots of old ever had a chance to  go out and die.  Proceeding, lie dealt with the phases  through whieh the nations., and particularly France and Britain, hail  passed in their struggle i'or the freedom of ideas, for the rights of the common people, find for equal justice for  nil classes before iiio. law. In the world  conflict of ideas there could be no  neutrality and in this connection he  said: j  Preparedness? Yes. Tf Americ������i is to  play any worthy part in the gigantic  conflict  of  ideas.  Avhieh   will   disturb !  the world long after the war of Forces i  has spent itself,  it is high time Am- !  erica made ready  i'or that inevitable  struggle.  But tho readiness for which I plead  on this occasion and in this presence  is the preparedness of the American  .Mind, the preparedness of the American Conscience, the preparedness of  the American  Will.  Better, infinitely better, to go into  the war at the battlefronts of Europe  and on the high seas with an army  and a Navy weaker and worse equipped than the most alarmist, accuser of  American unpreparedness in his wildest nightmaie ever dreamed, than to  line up in the world conflict of Ideas  with an undisciplined national Mind,  a seared national Conscience and an  irresolute national Will. These are  iho Verdun battlements of your nation's life. Surrender them to the  enemies of Truth ami Freedom .and  Honor, and, no matter what happens  lo your battalions and your battleships, your nation will have lost its  Soul.  My pleading, therefore, with you  .i.nd'with all Americans, in this time  of national! fear and international  peril, is not so much for or against the.  preparedness policy for Navy or Army.  As a Canadian that is not my business.  Tn that national controversy I am a  neutral.  But Canadians also nre Americans.  To us ns to you in the new day of the  new world the desolated war nations  will look for leadership in those policies and programs lhat make for internal ioiuil peace  !     The Spirit of the West  I Westerners   Have   Readily   Responded  j to the  Call  of  Danger  Eastern Canada does not need io  j be reminded of what Western Canada  | has done in this war. In tho western  Provinces one looks, and not in vain,  for the cheery- optimism and splendi 1  enthusiasm of youth. These sterling  qualities have nowhere been so strikingly displayed as in the record of  recruiting since the war began. It  is not that the West ean claim to be  more thoroughly impregnated with the  spirit of British freedom, but rather  that there the spirit of youth, which  is the Soul of adventure, readily responds to the call of danger from the.  "little isle ou=- fathers held for home."'  The Calgary News-Telegram claims  for Albei'ta, a new record:  "Their Parliamentary duties having  been disposed of for another year,  several more members of the Alberta  Legislature have exchanged the toga  for the uniform, and today .more than  twenty per cent, of tho Provincial Lawmakers are under the colors. All told,  there are fifty-five representatives in  own i the House at Edmonton, and of these,  eleven have already signed up for service overseas.. This -.c one more than  a fifth, and it is do.totiul if there "is  any other legislative body iu the Do-  I minion that can make a better show-  i ing.  |     "Of the eleven Alberta solons, two  are   Colonels,   one   is   a  Major,   three  ; are Captains, three hold rank as lieu-  i tenants, and  two are privates.      Ono  i of the three Captains has seen active  j service in ths great war, and is home  j on furlough,    v.nd one  of the    three  Lieutenants .has risen from the rank?.  Taking everything into consideration,  it  is   a   most   democratic   as   well' as  a  most   patriotic   body,   this   Alberta  Legislature, its members are fighters  when  it conies  to  politics  and yet  it  is seldom that one side of the House  sees  eye   to   eye  with  the   other  but  on   the   question     oi   patriotism    the  fifty-five members nre a unit."  This is a record of which Albert ana  have reason to be proud. The .swnt  under-tow of the European war is a  unifying force throughout the Empire.  East and West in Canada, are one in  this war. The only rivalry between  them is how best to serve*their day  and generation in the spirit of unity  and freedom so that Canadians hurrying to the call of the motherland, can  truly say as they catch the vision of  the years to be*  From a Farmer's Wallet  Honesty   in     Business    Transactions  Pays  Every Timn  Have you ever heard a farmer say  after he has sold a poor, wornout cow  for a good price "I got a big price  for her, she was getting along in  years and would not be worth much  another year?" And say this right  before the young folks. What kind of  an education is that for boys and  jiirls? If father is tricky; is not that  a lesson in deception for the young  folks? They think father is all "right.  What father does and says must, be  all right for them to do; so the world  is  made  a  little  bit. better  I knew a, man whose son sold a  yoke of oxen. After he had the money  in his hands and the oxen were gone,  the old father said to his boy: "Now,  my boy. that was too much for those  oxen. They wore not worth it. You  take part of that money and give it  back to the neighbor. We can't afford to take iiis money in any such  way." But the son protested. "He-  agreed to the price, father. It was a  fair bargain !" The old man was firm,  however, and insisted that his son  had over-reached and should pay back  part of the money, and he finailjf did  so. Do you suppose either of them  ever lost anything by that course? As  long as he lived the man who bought,  those oxen spoke of the farmer and  his son as honest men, worthy to be  believed in every spot and place. Yes.  long after they were both dead and  gone that story was told of them and  their memory was the more fragrant  for that  simple little  transaction.  Now. I have called this a small matter. I have not used the right word.  Xo such thing is a small matter. It  is a groat matter that we shall every  one of us, live the pure, clean, white  life. We can get along without the  money; the character we must have.  And all the little, things we do day-by-  day help to make up character. Not  reputation���������that is only the froth  whipped up by the wind on the top  of the ocean depths below. Keput-  tion is only a few lines written about  us in the dust.

Farmers' Sons Should be Given Some  Incentive to Stay on the Farm  If the farmers' sons would remain  on the farm and keep pace with the  new developments m agriculture with  the same degree of activity that ehar-  ���������acterizes manufacturing and other  industries, the problem of maintaining fertility and supplying food for  the nation would be solved.  Boys leave the farm because they  are not given material encouragement to remain while they are in  their '/teens." The life of the average  young boy on the farm is not very  pleasant for -man reasons. The hours  of labor are long, drudgery is constant and the conveniences such as he  has seen in city homes are lacking.  No incentive is offered to overcome,  those disagreeable features. Most  ���������boys, when young, want to become  farmers like their fathers.- They listen to the representatives from the  agricultural er lieges and the well-  meaning city farmer enthusiasts picture the beauties of farm life, but  when they face the cold reality the  following morning, they are dissatisfied and want lo leave the farm.  I"believe I know how the majority  of farm boys feci, for I was one myself, ::nd have observed them for more  than a half ci.ntury. I believe that  there is a remedy that will counteract the dislike for the farm which  so often prevails among them, and  that, remedy is encouragement. Some  incentive must be offered, not after  boys have rciehod their majority, but  while they are just, "kids."  The following incident, which came  to my notice many years "ago, fairly  illustrates what I mean  by incentive,  or encouragement, and the discourag- j  ing -factor: j  The   doctor   was  visiting  a.   patient;  in the country.    Just as he was ieav-i)  ing the house, little Johnny, tiie farmer's eight year old son, said, "Doc-tor,  this is  my  birthday     and    papa has  given  me a pig.    1   want you to see  it." He proudly led the doctor to the  pen,   where   he   showed   him   a  little black pig about, n week old.  He  explained quite minutely 1he superior  points  of  this  pig  and   linid  that   he  was going to take care of it and, when  it got to" be  u  big hog,  would  sell  it  and have "lots of money."  From time to time during the summer Johnny look great pride in showing his pig, watching it eat, and keeping it clean. Three times a day he  would strut iike a little man out to  the pen carrying skim milk aud an  armful of corn, and tried to act and  talk like a full grown farmer. As the  summer progressed he enlarged the.  pen, giving his pet some extra pasture, and quite often would gather  green vegetation for it.. On one occasion he stated that next year he  was going to buy two or three pigs  with his money and ask papa to rent  hiin a piece of ground so that ho  eould iai.se his own corn. He concluded by saying that he "was going to  be a farmer and raise hoes and ������ref,  lien.  When the pig was ten months old,  Johnny's fattier sold his hogs, including Johnny's. Johnny was very  proud of his pig and declared it would  weigh lots more than any hog on the  place. The following 'morning the  hogs were delivered at the station,  and the doctor, anxious to know how  much larger Johnny s pig was. ne-  cause of the careful attention it, had  received, than his father's lot, went  to see it. weighed. When the hogs woro  being driven on the scales Johnny  said.. "Papa, aren't you going to  weigh my pig separately ?" The father  in a cold way said. "JYIy pig! Whose,  corn fed that pig? Get, out. of the way.  Don't bother me." And Johnny was  dumb. His lips quivered, tin* tears  rolled down his cheeks and he walked  away broken-hearted and discouraged.  Thojiext year Johnny did not raise  a pig, for all incentive was taken  away: all hi*? hopes and dreams were  bla.st.-d.  Today tho old farm where Johnny  lived is dilapidated and unproductive.  John is not a. farmer, but n worthless,  shiftless individual living in town.  His ninbifion was blighted the day  his pig win sold. What might, not  Johnny have become had his father  leken him inf<> partnership the day  lhe pig  wa:: .'-..IdP  Enemy Admits Food Shortage  The Germans are nt lust, admitting a  shortage or food.

It is in Endel!  street near Covent Garden Market, and  the eutii-e staff, from cooks to surgeons, are women. The institution is  the outgrowth of a movement known  as the Women's Hospital Corps. A  little body of women left England for  France in the early stages of the war  to nurse the Avounded soldiers, but  later they were called back, as they  were needed even more urgently to  care for the many wounded soldiers  brought home to England.  From this small beginning the hospital, which will accomodate 500  wounded soldiers, sprang. The wounded soldier is considerably surprised,  if he is well enough to take notice,  to be brought to the hospital and see  only women orderlies in the corridors,  and women surgeons and physicians to  attend him.  The medical staff consists of eight  surgeons under the direction of a  chief surgeon, a dental surgeon, an  nice | ophthalmic surgeon, a pathologist, an  N-ray operator, an anaesthetist and  a number of physicians. In addition,  women medical students visit the hospital, and the entire administration  supervision of the hospital is in women's hands.  People and Land  Poorer  The shortage of meat in Berlin,  Hamburg, Frankfort and Leipsic and  other large cities is accounted for by  tiie lack of nitrates by which the land  ���������as a rule very impoverished��������� is  nourished. Germany has for many  years had to rely upon imported nitrates to keep her soil in a prolific  condition. Then, the shrinkage of labor on farms, and the commandeering  of live stock for the needs of the German Army at the eastern and western  fronts, have contributed to bring about  a serious state of affairs. Political  economists have held a conference'in  Berlin for the purpose of advising the  State as fo the best methods of conserving other food supplies, which may  be. required in a larger degree, if the  war should pass into another winter.

Subscription: $2 a year in advance;  $2.50 to United States points.  C. F. Hayes, Owner and Editor.  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY. JULY 14  Ever^r BoSiar BS&BitSed  Guarantors of the Creston branch  of the Canadian Patriotic Fund,  who are in arrears in their payments  to this grand cause, will be receiving a statement in a few days showing exactly how they stand on  Treasurer Bennett's books, and  urging that every reasonable effort  be made to meet their obligations  in full before November comes  around.  In this connection The Review  urges that special attention be  ^ivcn the siiSitter within the next-  few   weeks.    We  are  now   on the  faith. The opportunity is here to  make an end to the wasteful and  unholy competition for converts to  Christendom. Surely at this time,  and in the grandest of all causes,  the Master's "Behold how good and  pleasant it is for brethren to dwell  together in unity" should be all-  sufficient for the denominaions  assenting to union to get together  on a platform big enough and  broad enough to, in due time, enable both unionists and autis to  labor  more   effectively   to   hasten  the day when the kingdoms of  world   shall    have    become  kingdoms of the Lord.  i\txx  VIIV  t.ne  The long expected announcement  of the B.C. general election   materialized as  per  schedule-    Nomination day will be August 3,with polling on   Sept.    14.

Come  in today and try on a pair.  to seem to urge  persons interested  to  make   it a  point:   to pay   the  patriotic fund debt in full   and   let  other creditors   take  chances-the   meetings that are sure to   be   held  editor included, mavhap-we think | b>T bot h candidates,   and be able to  it but fair that monev due tlu* fund !tak* the pessary   time to   mark  should be paid   to   the  last  nickt.i;! their ballot on Sept. 14  not to the inconvenience of others.  but    rather    to    the    hurt    of   rbe  guarantors themselves, if need be.  With less than two-thirds of  Canada's half-million promised men  already recruited those in charge  of the fund forsee  that   the   grand  total amount guaran  will   not  be more than sufficient to take care  of the needs of  the  dependants  of  those   already   in khaki���������on    the  present   schedxile    of    allowarces.  With the usual  quot.a   of   dependants   of  the 150,000   men   yet   to  take up arms to be taken   care  of  our readers will readily grasp   that  even if all pay  in   full   we   will  do  well to escape an emergency assessment for the cause.  As the loss of Karl Kitchener  last week, has proven a wonderful  incentive to recruiting, particularly  in England, surely the heroic sacrifices our Canadian troops have  been making, especially during this  month, should, likewise, be equal to  unlossening the pursestrings sufficiently to ensure the payment of  every dollar guaranteed the fund  by residents hereabouts.  vsesiersi  Church Union Coming  By a vote of almost five to one,  of both ministers and elders, the  Pr-^sbyterian general assembly last  month decided to clinch negotiations  for amalgamation with the Metho-  di.st nnd Congregational bodies.  The majority in favor of union  ih considerably larger than antici-  p*i!>-d *ome months ago. Although  the four western provinces strongly  favored the move the other parts  approached tin* proposition almost  ;t8 warily as a singed cat does a  well heated hox stove.

The tight in Kaslo constituency  promises to be not only close but  wiii be extremely interesting to  follow and hear the result of, due  to the fact that in Messrs. Keen  and Long we have what is almost  the reverse tpye of candidates.  Mr. Keed's long suit (or one of  them) is his platform ability, we  are told. Along with this is a considerable previous campaigns experience, and, naturally, quite a  wide personal acquaintance especially at the northern end of the  riding.  Mr. Long, on the other hand, is  a little short on oratory, but any  handicap he may suffer in this respect is at least equalized on the  score of long residence, a better  knowledge of all parts of the constituency and consequently a wider  acquaintance, and on top of all he  is an agriculturist.  Mr. Keen may also be a little to  the good in that he is the opposition candidate and therefore has  not to answer for any government  suisof either omission or commission, but on the whole the prospects  and campaigning qualifications of  both candidates are so near six of  one to half a dozen of the other  that we can hardly understand the  extremists on both sides seeing  nothing to it but a famous victory  for their particular choice.  Under all the circumstances the  observation of tho late Sir John A.  Macdonald "that there's nothing  so uncertain as a horse race and a  general election" will be pretty  rigorously observed by the saner  element in the Kaslo riding this  election.

Far be it from The Review to  even seem rude on such an occasion  but in these days when those who  cannot get away to the front���������  with or without a commission���������are  being importuned on behalf of numerous patriotic schemes, it seems to  to ns that if the whole scheme of  things patriotic is uot to be somewhat slightly disfigured it is high  time some definite and drastic  action was taken to put the raising,  training and officering of the Canadian troops on the soundest possible  wartime and financial footing.  If there are 3,700 officers too  many every military school in the  Dominion should be closed.

If the country  is not good enough to fight for as a  private���������but we won't finish the  sentence: our language would be  very much unparliamentary.  Long ago we should have come  to a showdown with those Johnnies  who seem too proud to be a private.  Not only have they been a con-  siderrble bill of unnecessary expense but they have stood in the  way of promotion of fellows who  have either seen previous service or  men who in tho present lighting  have moro than demonstrated thoir  right to any ooinmissionod-offioor  prizes t/hat are to be bestowed.  Honor to whom honor is due should  hoppers and beetles. Very rarely  small birds are caught by them and  occasionally a rabbit.  The number of rats, mice, and other  noxious vermin reqxured by a pair of  these owls to feed their family, usually  consisting of from five to seven young,  is almost incredible and exceeds the  capture of a dozen cats for the same  period. It has been noticed that  when one of the birds has young it  will bring a mouse to its nest every  twelve to fifteen minutes. One pair  of barn owls destroyed 7,000 to 8,000  mice in one year and a half. Any  farmer has a fairly correct idea as to  how much grain 7,000 mice will consume in the course of a year. S.

While strawberries do well here they  are not grown in   any quantity for  commercial purposes, but huge quantities of the Creston berries are sent  in eyery year, and the berries from  that district. are   of  such uniformly  large size   and   reach   here   in such  good shape that everyone  waits for  the Creston berries.  A representative from  the Herald  aid a week-end yisit to the Valley  week and while  there  had   the  pleasure of visiting a number of the  strawberry ranches*, amongothers that  of Mr. O. J. Wigen at Wpnndel.    Mr.  Wigen has four and a half acres of  strawberries  bearing   fruit this year  with three and & half acres  additional  planted out for production  next year*.  Mr. Wigen is the "Strhwberry King"  .-���������.f t-V-.P  "Vaiipt-V       nmmA      oloo    +\mf*    fnt-\ttxm, rtf  the industry there. He is an old-timer  in the Valley, having come there a-  bout eighteen years ago, and was the  first to take dp the raising of strawberries in commercial quantities. Severe.! years ago he organized a co-operative fruit-growers' association which  is in the unique position of never having made a call on the stock-holders  for a single dollar of stock, due to Mr.  Wigen's able management of the concern. He and his son also have a box  factory where they mamifacturejcrates  and boxes for the Valley, and in addition have a strawberry nursery where  they grow young plants to supply the  growing demand of the district.  It is indeed a treat to visit strawberry ranches such as they havein the  Creston Valley. Although it was  raining at the time the reporter made  his visit the straw mulch bewteen the  rows and the beautiful slope of the  land made it possible, to walk ai*ound  among the rows of berries with absolutely no mud oi-inconvenience from  the wet. There is a splendid crop of  berries this year and the Creston  growers know how to make plants  produce not only quantity but quality.  While in Creston one grower brought  into tHE Review office two heaped-up  boxes of berries containing but ten  berries to a box. This may not be a  record for Creston but anyway they  were sure '-some berries" and tasted  just as good as they looked. Although  the production is "inoi-easiug the demand seems to be ahead of the supply  aud the strawberry market seems  surer than the market for any other  fruit.���������Cranbrook Herald.  There was an informal discussion of  taking up with the authorities the  matter of putting the Erickson-Kitche-  her and the Sirdar-Wynndel road in  better shape to encourage the across-  continent and . international auto  traffic which is more noticeable than  ever this year. Also the matter of  having Creston made a customs port  of entry to f������*ciiitate the arrival of  dutiable goods, which at present are  subject to quite lengthy delay at times  getting them cleared at Cranbrook.  It was thought wise, howeyer, to  have the associated boards'convention  deal with these matters.   rmmommJlxtrxB  WJ*7*a*BmBm7a  Wynndel is still engrossed in the  business of harvesting its record  strawberry crop. The season's estimate of 10,000 crates will be exceeded  by several hundred. Total shipments  up to Wednesday night are 6,d87  crates. This includes four straight  cars forwarded un to that time*  NEWS OF KOOTENAYS  The Co-Operative Fruit Growers  Association is in receipt of a telegram  stating that the carload of strawberries  shipped by them to Winnipeg on  Thursday last arrived in fine shape,  ana was far the best carload of fruit  that has been put en the Winnipeg  market this season.  Miss F. Bathie was a Creston caller  on Tuesday. Miss R. Cooper spent  Wednesday at the metropolis.  Misses Doyle and Mr. F. Rodgers of  Creston motored out here on Tuesday morning and made a tour of some  of the strawberry ranches.  The dance held in the schoolhouse  on Saturday night was largely attended aud the usual good time was had  by all present.  Kaslo council has refused the request, of the hotelmen fora reduction  in the license fee. The town has  $1,000 revenue from this source and is  wondering where this will come from  in case prohibition carries.  Local grown green peas were on  sale at the Nelson market on Saturday.  So far no great amount of damage  by cut worms has been reported at  Kaslo.  The Dominion fisheries authorities  last week stocked Sheep Creek with  trout fry.

That lie was too clover Sir Penywern  felt sure, and it only lemained to find  out by what means lie had sought to  victimise   Lady    Tradeseant,    and  in  what way he had como by his violent  end.  That, is to say: Sir Penywern, while  insisting to himself that the man's  death had been tlio result of a ghastly  accident, burned with a passionate  longing to know whether it was really  u misehancu ov not.  Ife looked earnestly and closely in  the dead man's face. Rathbone, who  was one of those men whose age cannot be easily guessed, was a thin,  woody-looking man with narrow  shoulders and pronounced stoop. Always pale, hollow-cheeked aud fur live,  with lank black hair aud a slouching  Willi;, he was almost certainly much  younger than he looked, and Sir Penywern came to the conclusion th-tt he  eould not- possibly be more than  ihirty. He was very ugly, with teeth  missing in the upper jaw, a wide  mouth and small sunken eyes, while  he had dragged his limbs in it manner  which, together with his paralysed  left arm, had given him 'he nir of a  man of juivanced  ago.  Sir IViiyworn, siuldt-nly making up  his mind, ivplaced the sofa in its old  I'o.-itio.u. so that it. once more con-  c.ah'd thi* dead man's body, and then  In- -tend un, rri-is������i-d tie- floor rapidly,  ���������'id'jeki-i]  the dour, and   w.-nt, out.  lb' must see Daphne at once.

Tlio butler, retreated towards tin*  servants' hall and having seen him  safely off in that, direction the baronet went upstairs.  The wide, shallow-stopped staircase, picturesquely broken, was n fen-  turo of tbe mansion. I?ich in oak  carving, with massive R']-uare-he.'i,ded  pillars, it was supposed to have been  brought, from another and mor������ uuig-  nifioeut old house in tiie days of the  Regency, and was laid to the account  of the indefatigable and uhi<|uitouR  Urinling  (".ibbniis.

Sir Penywern reached the wide corridor on ihe first  floor, and made his  ion   prof-special  running  i:ro.-.sos   it  but   a   poor  show.  Hut Salter, hor merry .little fair-  haired maiii, whom she had brought  with her from the vicarage, was very  proud of the arrangement, and madly  anxious for more now gowns to hang  Hi the handsome aooomudat"  vided, which was in hi-r  charge.  Sir Penywern met Salter  breathlessly along the corridor from  the west wing, whore tht* bad; staircase was, aiul tliey reached the door  of the dressing room together.  "Her ladyship has rune for you?"  usked  he.  "No. Sir  Penywern. Xot. yet."  "Then wait a moment."  The girl, who had evidently come*  up in a hurry to 71 re pa re for her mistress's toilet, and who was furtively  munching the last morsel of an tipple,  vetreated into the wardrobe-room on  the opposite side of the corridor, and  Sir Penywern. entering the bedroom,  called his wife at the diessing-rooin  door.  But there was no answer, and looking in, he saw that Daphne was not  there.  Ke went to the east wing, and sought  her in her "snuggery." a pretty room,  upholstered in pale- blue, which had  been decorated and furnished ex7">ress-  ly to her taste.  And then Sir Penywern beean to  feel the shadow of a fresh disaster  upon "him.  With ever-inereasing unei'ainoss he  went down-stairs, and, going from  room to room looked everywhere for  his wife. But he did not call fo her  again, being anxious above all things  not, to arouse any more curiosity than  he  could  help   in   the   servants.  Nevertheless he knew that curiosity  must be excited, and, aware that misfortune   was   settling  down   upon   his  "Now can't you tell mo,  ible girl, why you were  frightened just now?"  She  grew     reserved     and  again  at, once,  "Did 1 look frightened sir? It was  only���������only because I thought you were  angry  about,  something."  This   was   an   evasion,   but,   he   despaired of getting anything out of her.  llosides,  ho was growing gravely anxious  at  his  wife's disappearance.    So  lie  uttered  an  impatient exclamation,  aud   went downstairs.  I     This  time   he   went  straight  out of  j the house at  the  hack  by  the garden  ! door that opened out from the passage  leading to the study.  He throw a glance at the door of  the room where he. had left the body  of the unfortunate. Rathbone, and involuntarily stopped a moment to listen. Put no sound came from the  room, and he went out rnto the small,  sheltered, and rather sunless flower-  garden, which exteiide'T from the back  01 the house to the thickly jdanted  wood whicli lirotected the mansion  from the bleak north winds. On the  right hand he could see the silver  J line of-the sea growing dim in the  dusk-. On the left was the high wall  which shut, in the courtyard and  stabling; over this wall grew fruit-  trees, too much ��������� exposed to the east  winds to be very productive and beds  of late spring flowers and flowering  shrubs made the enclosure bright and  fragrant.  A gardener's shed, masked by  eluui]-.s of yew and box, was built  against tho angle of the stable-wall,  and at this point one path went away  into the wood, while another branched  off to the left under the outer wall of  thj} stables.  Sir Penywern. as ho reached the  odise of the wood, beard an exclamation, and saw a, violent movement of  the underwood some fwentv yards  away to the  left.  I'Halio! Who's that?" he called out.  Thoro was no answer, so he gave  chase, and plunging into the wood at  the spot where he had seen the  branch.es move, he had little difficulty  in tracking and coming up with the  fugitive, who proved io be a small  stable-boy. whose teeth were chattering with, alarm as he threw* himself  on bis back on the ground and lay  crouched in the attitude of one who  begs for mercy, though no word issued  Siouse, iie wen  itl  \   rH'fJT-.  l'-qnickor stevis  from room, to room, searching for his  wife in every corner.

Then he went out ami looked for  Daphne in lhe walks behind the yew  hedges, and called to her softly" by  name.  Tliere was no answer, no sound of  a footstep, and going back to the house  he went upstairs again, and came into the principal corridor to see the  lady's maid flitting, in evident excitement, from the Wardrobe-room to  her mistress's dressing-room, and back  again.  He noticed tlmt she tried to recover  herself and to appear a I. ease \vh"ii  he came up to her.  "What's the nmtler?" he said.  In spite of himself his torn* was  hard, and his expression stern. The  uirl. frightened, looked tiskunep at  him.  and stammered  in her reply:  "N-n-othing. iSir Penywern."  lb* couhl see that this was a lie, and  it exasperated him.  "Why can't you tell me the Irttth?"  he asked shandy. "Vou were looking  for something?"  from his lips.  "Get up! What's the matter with  you?" said Sir Penywern. puzzled and  uneasy at this fresh manifestation of  something mystoridi'isiy concealed  from liim by the members of liis  household.  The boy stared at him. white with  alarm, and for a moment seemed incapable of obeying the order. When  it was repeated, however, he slowly  scrambled to his feet, and gave in a  hoarse whisper the inevitable answer:  "I wasn't doin' nothing, sir."  It was stereotyped, and Sir Penywern had difficulty in keeping liis  hands off the looiish, stammering  youth.  "Now tell me what has frightened  you? Why did you run away when  you saw   iiie eomiugr"  "T���������I���������I  didn't  run   away,   sir."  "All right. Tell me what you were  doing when you  saw  inc."  "I���������T was standing in the path; 1  was tloing nothing, .sir."  "You had seen something that,  frightened you?" asked Sir Penywern  in  a  more conciliatory  tone.  The. boy looked up out of the corners of his eyes and then shook liis  head.  "No sir, I wasn't frightened. It  warn't   no  business of  mine."  "Come what did you see then? Out  with it. Don't be frightened. Tell  ������u��������������� just what  you saw. beard. Come."  ") didn't, see nothing, sir. barring  l saw my lady going into the wood."  liovo was news at last, definite, and  to the point. That there had been  ���������������������������.oniethin . hi Daphne's appearance or  manner to rouse, the boy's attention  and  curiosity   was clear.  "You saw her go into Mm wood?  Where?"  ".lust slraieht across from the gnr-  'If'ii ; 1 see her where 1 see vou, sir  only just for n minute, as she went  by.    She  wns v.ning quick*."  "Oh.   nil   ri./hl !   Anything else?"

It was narrow through the eii-  eronchmenls of the brushwood. It was  not much used, and not particularly  well kept. Sir Penywern's tastes lying-  in the direction ol n certain amount*;  of wildness and freedom of growth in  park and garden.  For some distance he went, watching the path jn front of liim as far  as ho could see it, s.nd listening for  any indication of his wife's presence.  When he bad got well out of earshot  of the. stables he began calling Daphne  softly by name, but there-was no response.  By this time he had begun to notice  that there were signs of the recent  passage through the wood of something wider than a human being: the  brambles were torn apart, and some  little twigs broken off.  And then, on a thorn-bush which  protruded over the path, lie found a  scrap of torn lace, large enough for  him to identify it as a fragment of  the wide lace scarf whicli Daphne  wrapped round her head and shoulders  when she came out with her husband into the grounds after dinner.  He was struck with the fact. It was  unusual for Daphne to wear this scarf  in the daytime; when he had last seen  her, an hour or less before, she was  wearing a, morning dress of navy  serge, and it was only when she was  in a low-cut dress that she took the  trouble to put on a wrap to go to the  grounds.

But, it has  been left to Lady Wilson to convey  in a few words an idea of his looks.  Lady Wilson who was a fellow  passenger with the Prince on his  return  from ids Indian trip,  says:���������  "His expression is elusive, tr his  features are insignificant. A foolish,  sandy, pallid look is accentuated by  an uncompromising "nut" coiffure.  His hair, worn rather long, is brushed" unmercifully back from a receding forehead; his moustache is embryonic. Yet there is fire about him.  and devouring vitality. In his curious slanting eyes, that you can  scarcely arrest for arecond, so restless are they, it is impossible to read  what is passing in his mind."  .

The one  great symptom of this trouble is pain,  fierce, stabbing pain, that almost  drives the sufferer frantic. The one  cause is poor blood ��������� the only cure is  to enrich the blood. Heat applied to  the inflamed ncrve3 will give relief,  but does not cure. Dr./Williams' Pink  Pills furnish the blood all the needed  elements, and the blood conveys them  to the nerves. The only way of getting food or medicine to the nerves is  through the blood, and the only way  to enrich the blood is through a fair  use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. In  this way neuralgia, sciatica and other  nerve disorders are promptly cured,  and the whole system benefited  and  Someone asked- Whistler if he waa  acquainted  with  King Edward.      He  said:  "No I have not that pleasure."  "But the King says he knows you."  "Oh,   well,"    responded    Whistler,  "you know he's always bragging."  Be Bright, Well Strong,  Restore Youthful Looks!  Let your fight for better health begin now! Before you feel any warning of physical collapse, cleanse, and  strengthen and build up your system.  The one remedy for that tired droopy  feeling is Dr. Hamilton's Pills, the  acknowledged king of all tonic medicines.

The  advisers of Richard II for a time  financed their adventures in France  by the aid of a poll tax, ingeniously  devised���������in the first experiments���������to  fall upon the richer classes. In 1*377  the levy was graduated from one  groat on the laborer to ������6 13s. 4d. on  a duke. Judges paid ������5 each; Earls,  countesses, nnd the richer mayors.  ������4; barons, baronets, aldermen, and  large merchants, ������*3- knights and mayors of small t-.wns ������1 down to 3s. 4d.  Thus the fourteenth century Englishmen had evolved a system by which  the rich man paid in some instances  as much as 40 tc 50 times more than  his poorer neighbor. But the Later  poll tax that lad to the Great Revolt  was, as we know, not happy in the  results. It shed the principle of graduation, and "the number of people  got off with a payment of 4d. or 6d.  was comparatively few."���������London  Chronicle.

My blood was thin and I was  completely run down.    I suffered intense pain all the time.    At different  times I consulted three doctors,  but  their treatment did no more than give  me  temporar?/  relief.      Then  I  tried  different medicines, but the result was  the same���������they seemed no good in my  case.    I was growing steadily, worse,  and finally could not leave the house  nor do a bit of work.   The last doctor  I consulted could do nothing for me  but give me morphine tablets to ease  the pain, and by this time I had aboi.it  resigned myself to a life of pain.
