C, FRIDAY, AUGUST 18, 1916  No. 31  I  e  i.\  Premier Bowser  rtas Busy Visit  Premier Bowser, R. P. Green, M.P*,  and the quartette of newspapermen  who accompanied them, had a very  busy time of it during their one day  stay in Creston.  Arriving   from   Cranbrook   in  the  afternoon, immediately  after supper  they attended a special meeting of the  Creston   Board of  Trrde   where the  premier was presented with a memorial having to do with some things the  people here would like to see undertaken by the government,  a full text  of which appears on page 5.     The address was read by President Reid, who  in a few exceptionally appropriate re-  nlarks welcomed! the premier to Creston.   The premier in reply dealt with  the   various matters   submitted  and  assured   that   they Would   have due  attention from himself and the other  ministers interested.   R.F. Green was  also called on for a few remarks, as  well as   C. O. Rodgers and Major Mallandaine, past presidents of the board.  At 8.30 the aforementioned gentlemen were the principal speakers at a  Conservative mass meeting in Mercantile   Hall,   which   was   very   largely  attended, even standingroom being at  a premium,   The   chair was occupied  by Stace Smith,  whose duties were  never onerous, except during the address   of   R,   F.   Green  when   it was  necessary on one  or two occasions to  call for better order.    Mr. Bowser was  accorded a  perfect hearing and   delivered   a quite eloquent,  clear   cut,  business like statement cf . the issues  on which his government is appealing  for a renewal of the public confidence.  R. J. Long, the Conservative candidate  also spoke, along with John Keen; the"'  : Liberal   standard   bearer,  . w  aecorded  30  minutes,   and"Whb  . was well  received.    Mr.   Bowser was  agreeably surprised on  rising to address the audience to be presented with  a boquet by Miss Ivin Compton, which  he suitably acknowledged.  On Sunday Messrs. Henderson,  Rodgers and Bennett motored the  party out through   the Erickson and  splendid piece of Marquis wheat,  which promises a yield equal to that  which Sergus Wheler, the famous  wheat grower of Saskatchewan,  carries off the prizes with.  Hindus who haye discarded the turbans and long braids are working at  the mill.  ffiltohenei*  A. Grady drove in from Creston on  Sunday.

BertMattson and family of Cranbrook are spending their holidays here.  Bert is busy with the finny tribe.

Mr. King, who was in charge of the  Creston school about four years ago,  has been secured as principal for Alice  Siding school for this year. School  opens on the 28th.  Trennie Long and Earl Pease were  the Siding representatives at *he  picnic at Sanca on Sunday last which  was arranged by the Wynndel young  people.  Miss Mary Barraclough, who has  been here with her parents for several  weeks, returned to Calgary on Thursday last. Will Barraclough left on  Saturday for Red  Deer, Alta., where  !   1 Ml J*     4-1.,.,-w     <lsmZ .> JU-^,_.  r-r.-.-:-*:^    i   =:*c;    VV lift   CTUOAJl'Ll    tSUlC?     \V UlijVL*  Leader Brewster  Here To-Morrow  Mr. and Mrs. John McPeak, who  haye been at Trail fen- several weeks  past, returned to town on Wednesday.  Mlloe Siding  The train stop at Smith's crossing  was cut out on Thursday last, though  for what reason is a sort of a mystery  as shipments of raspberries were still  almost normal.  Word arrived this week that Reg.  Thompson, who was formerly a chicken rancher here on the Mutton place,  has enlisted for overseas service with  the American Legion at Calgary.  Earl Pease and Trennie Long sampled the fishing at Kitchener on Monday, and the latter left the following  day for Pincher Creek, where he has  taken a position.  Geo. Hood has invested in anew  saddle horse, getting .it from the  Indians.    It is in the dandy class.  Mr. and Mrs. Webster and family  and Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Pease and  family, along with Mr. and Mrs. John  Johnson of Wynndel are spending the  week camping at Midge Creek.  Valley residents wiii have a splendid  opportunity to hear the Liberal side  of the provincial campaign issues  discussed at the big Liberal rally"  which is to be held on Saturday night  in Mercantile Kail at the usual  hour.  The speakers will be: H. C. Brewster, leader of the Liberal party; M.  A. Macdonald, M.P.P., Vancouver,  and John Keen, tbe Libeiul candidate  in this constituency. R, .J. Long fchft  Conservative candidate has been asked to be present and speak, and it is  possible Dr. King, the Liberal candidate in Cranbrook, will also be along.  Never before in Creston's history  haye so many public men of such  recognized oratorical attainments been  gathered.together for a citizens meeting, and as issues of vital import to  the people are to be discussed a large  representative gathering should be in  evidence.  Those in charge are reserying the  good seats for the ladies who are  specially invited. It is likely the band  will also be in attendance to brighten  up proceedings.  uiauiCub,  ana   ni  tne  Canyon   Cit*;  latter point the premier was the recipient of another citizens address,  whieh he acknowledged in characteristic fashion. The return from this  trip was at too late an hour to permit  of it run to Wynndel much to the  regret of nil tbe visitors, who were  anxious to see the Valley's well-known  strawberry section.  The newspapermen in the party  wero Mr. Sutherland of the Vancouver  World, Mr. Scott of the Vancouver  News Advertiser, Mr. McDougall of  tho Vancouver Province, and F. F.  Payne, managing editor of the Nelson  Nows. The ..coast men, especially,  were more than surprised at the extensive development of tho Valley.  and as a result of the board of trade's  enterprise in giving them a trip  through this section much valuable  publicity is sure to be forthcoming.  Tho party left Sunday afternoon for  Kaslo where u big rally was held on  Monday night. Evorg one of the  scribes spoke optimisticallv of the  govoi'iinient'H return���������20 Liberal seats  being tho best any of theni would  concede Mr. Brows-tut*���������and one of the  moro optimistic flijuvln;*; but one  Liberal would be elected in Vancouver.  Canyon City  A large number of tho yotors from  here attended the m/iHH meoMnjv hi  droHtou on Saturday night. On Sunday morning tho premier and party,  accompanied by H. J. Long and some  Creston <r5tr/e*n������ were motored through  horoi and at Canyon, Mr. Bowhoi* was  preHcnted with a memorial by a citi-  yuiiH ci-iiimilfti'i*. John Crawford reading the nddrenH. In reply tho premier  briefly outlined tho government's  policy as it uffecks agriculture, and  promised consideration of the matter*'  referred to.  The company la ploughing up Mock  \V\ which h*i������* yielded live crop.** of  hay, and intenda to plant ittopotfitoea  next. ficanon, we hear.  To briefly sketch the impressions  conveyed to me, a   visitor to Creston and a  comparative  stranger to  ���������tws'w**** -British  Columbia   politics^   at   the  rho-also Qonse,:'V;EI'tive  rally   last   Saturday  night is the object of these tew lines  to your valuable   paper.    The first  thing whioh   struck   me   was  the  keen and intelligent attention given  to the speaker at the meeting. The  audience appeared tc be well posted  on  the politics of  their  province,  and it  was  seldom that a speaker  could get away   with  a  statement  which was  open   to   the  criticism  and,      sometimes,       good-natured  raillery   of   his   opponents.      The  opposition was   particularly bright  and alive to the situation, and this  fact added  greatly   to   the  enjoyment of the evening.    The courtesy  of half-an-hour  in   which  to state  his case was extended by the chairman .to Mr. John Keen, the Liberal  candidate for   the riding,  who put  up a very good * fight,  although he  was naturally handicapped   by not  knowing on what   lines the opposing    speakers   would    base    their  arguments.   In arousing the attention of his hearers   to the apparent  weaknesses  of the present  government of the province, he particularly emphasized the  blame attached  to them in the disastrous failure of  the Dominion Trust   Company and  strongly condemned the   oxtwivag-  ance of their vailway   policy.    His  assurance that ho would    head tho  poll on September 14th   next   waa  received with hearty   acclamations  by   a largo part of   tho audience  who wished suoceqs to this redoubtable campaigner.  Mr. "Bob" Long did not make a  lengthy spoeoh, preferring to leave  his case in the hands of more experienced apcakcro; but although  lie said little, .1 had tho impression  that many would vote for him for  friendship's sake. His appearance  led mo to believe that ho was a  a man whose personal integrity  would go a long way toward winning t.ho day.  A>������l������  ���������  **  t  '���������"*���������'.  Mr. Robert Green, the, member  for Kootenay, was present on tho  platform and addressed tho mooting in support of Mr. Long. Ho  ohoso to spoak on things which  concornod tho ihtorostn of tho Dominion of Canada, nu, a wholo, with  special reforonco to tho legislation  passed at tho last session of tho  Wjltx.t ,it |iaiiiuini)iii,, wiiioii niTeiaen  moro particularly the provinoo of  Hritinli Columbia. In uiuiwer to  an interrupter who enquired what  the government had dono for tho  .....������,..(..., vj������ ������>.v... no iiiKiiii-.ii tiMMiiiy  to the recent taxation of foreign-  grown apples, which was a needed  protection to the fruitgrowers of  the province. The supporters of  Mr. Keen brought the tiatter-ies of  cynicism to bear with peculiar  vigor upon the member for Kootenay, and at times he appeared to  be hai*d pressed, but he managed  to get through quite gracefully  with an appeal to sentiments of  loyalty, and a peroration which extolled the virtues and qualifications  of the Conservative candidate,  Hon. W. J. Bowser, premier of  British Columbia, was, of course,  the star of the evening, and he certainly made a remarkably able  speech in defence of the government of the province. A pretty  episode occurred just before he addressed his audience���������a little girl,  the daughter of Mr. -Compton, a  local rancher, presenting the premier with a boquet of flowers.  Mr. Bowser opened with an attack on Mr. Keen's position, dwelling with peeuliao humor and wit  upon that gentleman's ambition to  one day head the poll and not, as  always in the past, to remain at  tho foot. Given a century he  thought Mr. Keen might possibly  attain the object of his desire. But  Mr. Keen will have another chance  yet, and a far bettor one, to meet  the arguments of the premier when  thoy both meet again on the same  platform in tho near future at  Kaslo.  By a clear, concise and irrefutable statement of his case Mr.Bowser certainly conveyed to his audience the impression thnt. the government had worked hard in t.ho  interests of this province. What  struck mo forcibly was the wisdom  of appearing in poison before tho  eleotors of tho country at this time.  As ho said, ho had been pioturod  by his opponents as a sort of monitor, an ogre, an altogether undesirable person. But ho was thoro  to moot tho peoplo faco to faoo, to  enquire into thoir wants, to vindicate tlic- policy of hi.'; gctvi rmttcul,  and to show them ho was not tho  typo of individual that his onomios  had made hhn out to bo.  Ho onumorated tho many acts of  legislation whioh had recently boon  passed in the legislature���������acts to  lieiiolit, the vaiioiiH uithiHtrioH of the  provinoo, lumbering, mining, fishing, agrioiui/Ure, ot.o., dwelling with  special prid^ upon tho Workman's  Coinpemmtion Act, which ho claiina  to ho tho best of its kind in tho  world.    Ho refuted tho claim mado  Wynndel  Miss Phyllis Shaw of Cranbrook ar-  ..-..        mm-^tl*. -U       ������J*A <JlAlV\*l. \.*fJLt >  vatives bad stolen the policy of the  Liberals by saying that the Liberals had constructed so many platforms that it was impossible to outline any form of policy without  touching on' something the Liberals had conceived. He attempted  to vindicate the apparent.extravagance in the government'*3 dealing  with the P.G.B. Railroad by opening the eyes of the people to the  tremendous possibilities of the  future, when British Columbia  would benefit by this railroad  system.  He proudly referred to the effect  of the Shipbuilding Act, which  is seen in the immediate commencement on the hulls of several merchant vessels. Perhaps now and  again we felt a note of weakness,  as when in defense of tho government's actions in the interests of  soldiers, he asked what Mr. Brewster was doing for the soldiers, and  found fault with him for contesting  the seats of Conservatives who had  left their country to fight at the  front. Surely he could hardly expect tho leader of the opposition to  strotch his sense of magnanimity  so far as to yield theso without a  contest!  Mr. Bowser's defense of the government in its relation to tho Dominion Trust Company hardly appealed to nie whon he said that  other provincial governments had  mado tho same mistake before the  B.C. government had, The excuse  strikes me as rather weak, but at  the same timo wo aro forced to  applaud when ho tells us that he is  going to face these same people in  Vancouver who have boen tho chief  suflbrors by the failure of that con-  oorn and ask them to ro-oleot him  to lho legislature.  Mr. Brewster's famous writ,  whioh Mr. Keen claimed to be so  trifling r.:: affair, was not so regarded by tho premier, and I agree  with many othors that tho writ  should novor havo boon issued at  all.  ixly conviction Ls In'it Mr. Bowser loft a vory good impression on  tho peoplo of Creston Valloy, and  that many a man who had folt, to  say tho least, doubtful of i.iio honesty and intogrity of the premier of  tho province, will by his personal  appeal bo restored lo it feeling of  oonfldouco in Mr. Bowaer and the  prormnt, government of Itritisli  Columbia.  It may be my privilege to hear  Mr. Brewster at a later data aiul  with an unbiased   mind   urivo some  guest of Mas. May,  Creston visitors this week include  Joe Wigen on Monday. E. S.

Dick Bevan will  lose some money tbrodgh Wynndel if  he don't watch out.  The picnic at Midge Creek on Sunday via the tug Errand Boy was without doubt the biggest social success of  the season. 22 guests responded to  Cant.. Ogilvje's invitation, and all spent  a most enjoyable day.  Mr. and Mrs. ,T. Johnson left on  Monday for a week's camping at the  Midge. Creek.

This is how  F.   C.   Njnnicke  of  the   Commis'.'on   of  Conservation^  sizes up the weed situation in Canada.    In regard to wild oats, he reports  that in 1910 on., hundred farms were  visited in each of the prairie provin,-  ccs, and on one per cent, of the Manitoba farms wild oats were found. Ir.  Saskatchewan  seventy-one  per  cent.p  and in Alberta three per cent, reported wild oats.    In  1911, on  the same  far.nis in Alberta, thirty-one per cent,  reported wild oats, while in 1912 a still  larger    number    reported    this weed,  showing that  it was travelling westward with a vengeance.   ..In  the dis-  tr'ct  visited  in   1913,  wild  oats were  reported   by eighty-three per cent, o/  the farmers.  Ball mustard, Canada thistle, stink-  weed and ivild dots were reported in  the Prairie Provinces on at least fi fly-  three per cent, of the farm'- visited  and some of these weeds were reported on twenty-nine per cent; of the  farms. In Eastern Canada'couch and  ox-eye daisy were reported on seventy-three per cent, of the farms and  sow thistle on thirty-four per cent.

The glands that furnish the digestive  fluid are diminished in their activity;  the   stomach   muscles  are  weakened,  and there is a loss of nerve force.   In  this state of health nothing will more  quickly  restore the appetite,  the digestion    and normal    nutrition    than  good, rich,  red blood.    Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills act directly on the blood,  making it rich and red, and this enriched blood strengthens weak nerves,  stimulates tired muscles and awakens  the normal activity of the glands that  supply the digestive fluids.    The first  sign  of  improving health  is  an    improved appetite, and soon the effect of  these    blood-making    pills is  evident  throughout the system.   You find that  what you  eat does not distress you,  and that you arc strong and vigorous  instead of irritable and listless. This  is proved by the case of Mrs. J Harris,  Gerrard St., Toronto, who says*.  "About three years ago  I was seized  with a severe attack of indigestion and  vomiting.     My  food   seemed  to   turn  sour as soon as I ate it, and I would  turn  so  deathly  sick  that  sometimes  I would fall on the floor after vomiting.    I tried a lot of home remedies,  but they did not help  me.    Then     I  went to a doctor who gave me   some  powders, but they seemed actually to  make  me     worse  instead    of  better.  This went on for nearly two months  and by that time my stomach was in  such a weak state that I  could    not  keep  down  a drink  of  water, and   I  was wasted to a skeleton and felt that  life was not worth living.    I was not  married at this time and one Sunday  evening  on the  way to  church  with  my   intended     husband   I   was   taken  with a bad spell on the street.      He  took mc  to  a drug 'store  where the  clerk fixed up something tc take, and  niv  intended  got  me a  box.  of    Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills.    By the end of  the first week I could feci some improvement from the use of the Pills,  and  I   gladly continued  taking  them  until every symptom of    the trouble  was gone, and I was again  enjoying  the best of health, These Pills arc now  my standby and I tell all my friends  what they did for mc."

American Library Association Devising New Service for Dissemination of Agricultural  Information  A scheme to organize the dissemination of agricultural information  throughout the country so that all the  people may learn of all the research  data being published for them in the  form of bulletins, periodicals etc., is  the big problem that is engrossing the  attention of the agricultural section of  the American Library Association  now in session at Asbury Park.  It is proposed not only to compile  and keep up-to-date a reference guide  to all the current official agricultural  bulletins in the United States, D-.U to  include scientific and popular journal*  dealing ith the problem of agriculture.  The official publications of the agricultural departments in foreign countries and the leading scientific journal abroad will be included in the service.  The references arc to be printed  in the form of a book to take the  place of the clumsy and expensive  card catalogue so that the busv research worker can carry it home"with  him. The movement has back of. it  the most prominent research workers  in the experiment stations and the  leading professors in the agricultural  colleges.  The rends-infe of this bibliographical service will herald a new day in  the advance of agricultural work in  America. Thousands of invaluable  bullitens are issued by state and federal research workers by state boards  and agricultural associations, all of  whicli arc free and would help the  poor farmer if he could only find out  about them, but they accumulate so  rapidly and ire issued througli so  many diverse agencies that the most  helpful publications arc soon buried  past the hope of any resurrection.  This is the vast treasure trove that  the new bibliographical service is designed to open up to the people.  State of Ohio. City of Toledo.  i���������ucas County, ss.  Prank J.

Board   of  Trade,    on   behalf   of  the  I citizens   of   this    district,     take  the  j opportunity to present you    with this  i memorial, believing that  the govi-rn-  ! ment's attention   to any   or all   the  j mutters  herein   referred   to   will add  considerably to the. all-round advancement of this section, which   is rapidly  taking its place *is one of the foremost  centres in the B.C. interior.  1. Now that the Province is committed more strongly than eyer to a  wise and vigorous agricultural development policy we would urge upon the  government immediate and thorough  consideration of the reclamation of the  oyerflowed lands in the Kootenay  River Valley. Embracing an estimated area of from 80,000 to 40,000 acres  of proven high class agricultural lands  we know of no undertaking that  promises so rich a return to the  Province, both financially and  agriculturally. Soil tests have shown  the wonderful fertility of the soil,  while information from ranchers who  are cropping some of these same lands  in Idaho show an average of almost  125 bushels of oals from an 80-acre  crop. As high as 20 tons of potatoes  pet* acre is also recorded, with ether  grains and roots showing equally  well. At Wynndol these lands have  been turned to strawberry culture  with equally satisfactory results. The  land is mostly ready for cultivation  and would appeal strongly to agriculturists', of whom many will he coming  this way with the close of the war.  Ah a show place of B.C.'s agricultural  possibiltics alone the scheme merits  consideration, and when coupled with  its outstanding agricultural possibilities wc rcmembor also tho powiiblo  financial returns that should and  would accrue from reclamation wo  again urge thorough investigation of  tho 'wholo undertaking.  2 Tho lntor-Provincial Highway in  this section is so incomploto at present that most of the motor fcraluc is  diverted through Idaho. If the road  from Erickson to Kitchener is improved and the road extended from Sirdar  io ICi'.sk.'UH'o'; in* Ibal- auto;������ can la-  bo driven to that point and hoard a  ferry fco 1 Jul four it will makoltpoHHible  to motor across B.O., to the uoast  without once   leaving the province.  road built leading; up to the customs  office. This causes great inconvenience  to tourists and  travellers,   and considerable loss of revenue to   the. Province.    The Great Northern  Railway  Co. is dismantling   fche railway from  Port   Hill  to. Wynndel and   we asli  that your government take immediate  action to secure tbe right of way for  a wagon road before   the  bridges are  taken out.

In addition fco its  advantage as a main highway between  Idaho and B.C. fche opening of tnis  road will be a boon to the numerous  residents between Port Hill and  Wynndel,  Discussing   the   road problem still  further we would advise that there are  a number of mines and prospects on  Summit Creek and supplies for these  mines are carried by  pack train from  the mouth of Summit Creek  to  fche  various points  where required.    Ores-  ton  is the  natural supply centre for  | Summit Creek.    At present the road  j from here runs to  within 3 miles of  j the camp at the mouth  of  the Creek  | where pack trains are assembled.    If  this road  is completed  to  Summit it  will greatly facilitate the carrying   of  ! supplies to the mines and   prospectors  ,! in this district.  i    3 In connection with the   advanced  scheme of agriculture for the   whole  j province your petitioners would call  attention to the all-round advantageous situation of the Creston Valley as  a centre for a demonstration farm for  the Kootenay. Here we haye the  combination of horticulture and  agriculture so ideally worked out, and  with a central location in the afore-,  mentioned district it is afc once apparent that here is the one spot where  can be done the greatest good fco the  greatest number with the maximum  of efficiency and minimum cost no  matter on how limited or how pretentious a scale demonstration activities may be undertaken. Here, also"  is fco be found the ideal location in  fchat fche Creston  Vallep   is the first  fjOfl! ������������������ Q?S������'!.f������������It\M*'*.t*l j/iov������ ���������,%-������.��������������������� r\ytg \*iir-������*ti*t.i\7CmX  m. ���������'v~.      vipi.**. :*ou;!-v:; zz/i.     ij*������_ris i.'**. ���������������-*        ���������**������.������������fc*j^\>v������*u������, T v-������  setfclei-s encounter on visits fco B.C.^  and it is highly desirable that the  first impressions such visitors get  should  be of the very best.  withdraw from the -working of fche  pound law and afford the protection  desired by an amendment to the  Highways Act making it an offence  for cattle to be afc large within certain  prescribed areas; it fco be the duty of  the provincial police or some other  duly appointed officer to see that the  law in this regard is observed.  7. In conclusion we would remind  that Creston is now almost the foremost soft-fruit shipping point in B.C.  Shipping agencies as well as indiyidual  ranchers assure that the best prices  are obtained from berries shipped in  small lots, At fche present time the  area within which it is safe to sell-  due to transportation facilities���������is  more or less limited in this respect.  Were it possible to have iced cars  provided for the handing of this small-  lot-shipping, as in fche case of straight  carloads, greater financial returns  would be assured the growers, and a  stimulus given to increase fche area  planted to soft fruits in the Valley���������a  consummation devoutly to be wished  for. We would ask fchat the matter  be referred fco fche horticultural department for its best consideration.  All   of   which   is   respectfully submitted.

Ji  On thiH highways matter, wc would  also point out that the present road  Ivcfcwecn Port Hill, Idaho, and (Vinton  is l'*5 miles long. It is poorly fowled,  and has some very steep hjllw. The  Canadian customs house at RyU-uts is  located close to the Kootenay Valley  Railway right-of-way, ahout half a  mile from fche  wagon  rood,  with  no  4. In choosing land fco allot to returned soldiers Creston district should  certainly not be oyerlooked. Creston  farm aud orchard products haye been  amply proved, and in this splendid  Valley splendid soil, ideal climate and  proximity to the prairie market offer  inducements to the agriculturist that  cannot be equalled anywhere in B.C.  There are also several tracts of government land in this district that could  be utilized for this purpose.  5 In  educational  matters  we draw  attention to Creston's claim for special  consideration.    The   district,   as   you  are   possibly   aware,   is   unorganized  municipally,   and    while  the  present  European struggle wages it is seemingly impossible to arouse interest in the  advisability   of    having    the   Valley  erected into a rural municipality���������due  to the fear of increased   taxes mainly.  At   the   same   time   the   number   of  scholars now in  attendance  warrants  the starting   of a, high  school of the  first   class.    Due    fco    this    lack    of  municipal    organization    the     usual  assistance   given  higher education is  witheld.    Recognizing that, the  vory  best education we can  give  the children  is none too good for them, and  remembering  fch������    unusual times and  conditions with which Creston is faced  we   ask   your    most    thorough   and  serious consideration of all fcho circum-  sfcuncos,    regardless   of   the   statutes  made   and    provided,     whop   future  requests arc made in this   connection.  On   school  matters we   would also  point  out   that    under   the   present  system   of tax collecting  for   school  purposes in rural districts trustees aro  often nut to great personal  inconvenience   in   financing   schools.   Assessments come in so slowly that money  has often  to  bo borrowed from  tho  bunk for teachers'salaries and current  expenses, and as no provision is made  for borrowing money on tho taxes in  arrears, or on any othor school dlntrlcfc  security, tho  trustees have fco borrow  on fchoir personal note, thus ornbarasH-  ing fchoir financial credit.   We vequosfc  that fcho government fco at onco devise  Rimm moro enVefcivomofchodH to ensure  prompt payment of school rates, or so  amend fcho Acfc that whore loans are  necessary such (Inane-, may ho had on  the security of the school district and  not nt fche trustees' peril as at present.

Community   intelligence  In*large cities the death rate from  infectious disease has made a wonderful drop in the last fifteen years.  City dwellers are patting themselves  on the back and pointing rather  scornfully to their country cousins  who have had no such improvement.  They are saying now that all the  typhoid fever comes from the country, reaching the city only when some  vacationist brings it back or a dairyman carries  it  along his route.  In a measure their position is warranted, but it is not because of the  superior acumen of the city man or  the inferior intelligence of his country neighbor. It is simply because  cities have been compelled to have  boards of health, which have insisted  upon water filtration plants, upon  sanitation in all dwellings upon medical inspection of school children,  upon sanitary disposal of waste and a  score of other things against which  the city ih an often protests, but to  which   he   necessarily   submits.  The remedy for country folk is.to  allow community intelligence to prevail over personal prejudice, and likewise to organize for good health.

And yet there  is no bit of the fighting that the  British soldier relishes with such zest,  except it is to follow up the explosion  with a bayonet charge.  "It was over a hundred yards from  ihe shaft or outlet and only measured  about 3 feet high by 30 inches wide."  Thus writes an officer who superintended a most successful tunneling  operation.

Let it be remembered that Biitain  has done this without universal compulsion. Two years ago there was no  more seeming probability of such a  draft being made on Britain than there  is today of its being made on America.  The war was not threatened, was not  expected. When it began in the late  days of July, 1914, to loom as a possible eventuality there Avas almost universal detestation of the idea of engaging in such a struggle.  No nation, when this war started,  conceived the mobilization of men and  resources which has been accomplished. Go back to the fantastic statistical complications of a few years ago,  in which were represented the "potential military strength" of nations on  the basis of the highest theoretical recruitment. Not one of the countries  now at war was credited, in these theoretic calculations, with nearly so  many military units of humanity as it  now has under arms.  Who, again, believed that the economic strain ot sucii a war coulci  be borne, at this rate, thus long? Almost nobody. Yet the war has gone  two years at higher pressure than  could be imagined; it migift go as  many more; and the economic aspect,  while serious, is not .even yet the supreme one.  The explanation, of course, is that  a country at war saves in a myriad  other directions so that it 'may spend  the waste on the fighting machines;  and the war waste which the statisticians gravely figure is entitled to  be offset by the war economies, which  are not only huge, but in many ways  consiitutc a useful lesson in thrift and  sense.���������From the New York Press.  for the defence  is the national influence of his name.

When a few shots had been  exchanged," the Germans, seeing how  few their opponents were, turned  round and rode to meet them. After  a few minutes fighting, twenty-two  Germans were dead (eleven by  Krutchkov's hand), two lay wounded  on the ground, and the remaining  three fled.  Krutchkov had been wounded sixteen and his horse eleven times. The  other Cossacks had each received a  few wounds. All were taken to hospital at Vitebsk, where they recovered  in a wonderfully short space of time;  now they are again s- the front.  Krutchkov received his Cross and hi.-*  fame  filled all Russia.

On An Aeroplane  A Four Thousand Feet Leap  Feat of a French Officer is Without  Parallel in the Present War  The feat of a young sub-lieutenant  of the French artillery, Maurice B.,  in dropping 4,000 feet from p. balloon  is without parallel in the recent war.  There has been nothing quite like it.  While he was in charge of one of  a number of spherical ballons at Verdun, a fierce storm, attended with  thunder and lightning, broke over the  lines. Several of the balloons wer in  consequence detached from their  moorings and were lost. One of these  was under the direction of Maurice B.  Carried by the wind, which was in  au easterly direction, toward the enemy, he determined to fall, if at all  possible within his own lines. But  liis balloon, catching fire, this was  rendered impossible. Mc burned all  his papers on board, and, seeing there  was no hope of escape except by the  parachute, he seized it, and made a  plunge from the height stated.  l+fS-* descent was itiade. the morx*  dramatic by the storm, thunder and  lightning and rain mingling to make  the feat highly spectacular. Maurice  th was cheered on reaching ground,  and lib- promotion was one of lhe  most  popular events of the month.

Headache and  an indefinable discomfort follows the  ascent. At 2,000 feet the hearing- sense  is affected. At 3,000 some experience  Peculiar hallucinations, and an "ac'sen  thic" condition which prevents  muscles for obeying the will  adequate rapidity.  Something akin to a feeling of anguish takes possession of the ascender. The headache is intense,  scender. The headache is intense  the skin becomes hotter, and sleep  overtakes one at times, which, of  course, is attended with danger vmi en  near actual contact with the cart:*,  Strange to say, all these troubles gel  augmented on landing. The aviator  falls asleep as soon as he lands and  non-refreshing rest may characterise  his sleep for days.  Fliers, therefore, should be young,  robust, resolute and cool-headed men,  with sight, hearing, nervous and vascular systems perfectly sound. No  weak heart, should venture in an aeroplane. Alcohol is deadly to an aviator. Goggles and greasing of the.  skin, with sparse but warm material  for clothing, are among the essentials  to successful aviation.

This particular mine was so close  to the German trenches that you  could hear their riflebolts click as  they unloaded, after firing. Moreover, with a view to blowing a ready  made communication trench the mine  was so close to the surface that the  concussion from the explosion, of  even the lighter shells from our guns  falling short and anywhere near us  put all the candles out.  One of the greatest difficulties connected with these operations is to ventilate.the galleries and avoid the noise  made bv mechanical ventilators" or  fans, and, as the "stemming" has to  be passed from hand to hand to ensure quiet, the number of men necessary in a gallery a hundred yards long  is so considerable that the air is rarely good enough to allow a candle to  burn.

The infantry attack which was to  follow* the explosion, -was timed to  begin at 4:30 a.m., and the mines  had to be exploded at 4:29 a.m., so  that the infantry might rush forward  under cover of the smoke from the  explosion.  } In order to blow up-, this mine to  form a ready made communication  trench the charges had to be laid in  a scries, equidistant and of equal  amount, except for those nearest our  own end.

To make doubly sure a fuse hao v*een  attached, so that if the electrical connections failed the safety fuse could  be employed.  The time came at last, and we pushed down the handles of the exploders.  So great was the concussion of the  shells dropping at ihe time that for  the life of mc .1 thought the charge.'  scries of charges as we were firing/  had failed, though such a charge or  was sufficient to shake down dug-outs  several hundred yards away.

And along these two miles is  a good sized city of people, over 4,000  engaged in the infinite details of this  war work, great and  small,    ail  the  \\txy     uuui    ������>CJ.iC������.Uiy    v>i    Si.ai.C    xxix     nuj,  down to boy scouts and girl messengers. __ And this is only the central establishment, for the w.ar exigencies  have outgrown even this huge building, and many outside buildings, business blocks and other premises have  been taken in as War Office.  The sudden extension of censoring  as a precaution of military defence  has called into service a large army  of censors, and-a number of large  business premises in various quarters  have been acquired for the military  censors' branch. Three or four other  branches are at other points, and  practically the whole ordnance branch  has grow*n into a separate government department with a Cabinet Minister, Lloyd-George, at its head.  Yet the War Office still remains  the throbbing centre of the war work;  her.* the larger questions of strategy  and the campaigns in various theatre^  of the war are worked out; here the  army council and the Imperial general  staff hold their meetings, and here the  many branches of military work ramify from the headquarters of General  Sir W. Robertson, chief of the Imperial staff; Lieut.-General Sir H. Sciater,  adjutant-General to fife" forces; Lieut.-  General Sir I. Cowans, quartermaster-  general, and the two members of Parliament who     represent  the     civilian  How Belgians** are Assisted  System by Which Food Supplies Are  Distributed by Neutrals  Many people may be interested to  know through what process the dispensation of relief to the three million  starving people of Belgium goes in  order to reach its destination with the  assurance that none of it reaches the  Germans. Donations of money or in  kind turned into branches of the Belgium Relief work all over Canada are  in turn delivered into the hands of the  Belgian Relief Committee, 59 St. Peter  street, Montreal, which is the official  outlet for Canada. This in turn goes  to the neutral commission, wdiich,  ���������through the mere fact that it is neutral, prevents Germany from profiting  by the relief sent to the Belgians.  Cargoes of food are sent to Rotterdam and thence by train into Belgium.  In Belgium there are 125 central warehouses under the control of Americans and from these warehouses the  necessary food and other supplies are  issued to 4,000 Belgian communal  committees. These communities reissue the food to the Belgians as it is  needed and hand out of the other supplies as permitted by the amount arriving.  Since the relief work was first started the national oemmittee had handed  to the neutral commission over $6,-  000,000 collected from British sources  alone. This is but a drop in the bus-  kct. Three hundred and fifty thousand  dollars a w*eek is needed to carry on  th'* work and this only represents  th.-ee slices of bread'*'' and a pint of  soup daily for the starving Belgians.  New German Brutality  F'ow the Huns Continue to Oppress  the Belgian People  Not satisfied with lowing heavy  and unbearable taxation upon Belgium  as a nation, and Brussels, Liege, Antwerp, Bruges, and Ostcnd as cities,  the Berlin authorities have now given  their sanction to wholesale confiscation. Here is a list of their known  depredations, viz:  1.���������The exportation of the 1916  green and grain crops to Germany.  2.���������The prohibited sale of sugar, tea,  coffee, and cocoa, until Berlin agrees.  3.���������The confiscation of all metals  and stripping of locomotives, for the  possession  of the  same.  4.���������The restriction of the sale and  consumption of glycerine.  5.���������Suspension of the trade in cotton.  6.���������The destruction and export of  trees.  7.���������The appropriation of factories  for the manufacture of munitions, and  the transfer of machinery in Belgium  to Germany.  8.���������The purchase of goods at one-  third their cost.  The taxes this year will be doubled  and to the Burgomcistcr of Brussels  an officer in high command said that  if there was any further disposition  on the part of the inhabitants to resist the taxes , the taxes for  would he collected at the point  bavonc-t.  1 branch  i   j-v.ee i->  Wrtl      UlcUlC.il     111  1917  of the-  touch with Parliament, Mr. Tcnnant,  Parliamentary under-secretary for war  and Mr. -Foster, financial secretary  for war, with Sir Reginald Brade as  secretary of the War Office atid of the  War  Council.
