 i  Vol. VIII.  CRESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1916  "No. 33  School Resumed  Sessions Monday  Creston schools opened for the fail  term on Monday morning with a  total attendance of 113. This is slightly under the opening-day register of  the previous year, but this is accounted for in the fact thatj owing to the  excessive heat several of the older  scholars are not yet on hand, as well  as some new beginners.  There is one change in the teaching  staff. Former-vice-principal Macedo  is succeeded by Mr. Malcolm Mackenzie, who taught last year in the  Queensborough school, New Westminister, and who comes splendidly  recommended both as an instructor  and disciplinarian. He is a native of  Prince Edward Island, in which province he taught successfully for some  years before coming to B.C. The  opening-day attendance in his room  was 28.  Principal Masterton. from all appearances, will haye a record number  of scholars this term. He starts off  with 25 and look to be due for at least  a dozen more by the time the term is  under way a'few days. Last year he  started with three second-year high  .schotl pupils, while on Monday eight  were on hand. In the entrance class  the 1915 enrollment was 12. He has  at least 18 in sight for the coming  year. The bigger class is due in part  to the attendance of Entrance material  from some outside schools.  Miss Hardman had a starter of 32 in  the primary room, while Miss Hurry  enrolled 28 in Division IL The  school has a new caretaker this year,  Mr. H. Devine replacing B. Boadway,  who has moved to Canyon City. As a  janitor Mr. Boadway gave splendid  satisfaction, the inspector always  rinding the Creston school, one of the  best looked-af ter in his tercitoryT^ A  now usg is rstuer b&ulp needed which,  along with getting the bell back into  action, would about put school matters back to normal again.  In connection with school history  it is worth}* of note that except Creston every school in the Valley has a  new teaching staff when compared  with August, 1915. Mrs. Barker  succeeds Miss Illsey at Sirdar. Mrs  Sparkes and Mr. Duncan are no longer  at Wynndel���������Mr. Johnson is in command in the strawberry metropolis.  A. L. Dougherty is replaced at Alice  Siding by Jas. King���������a former Creston  teacher. At Canyon City Miss Whitehead has retired, and her place is  taken by Msss McLean. Miss Melva  Cartwright's Iplace at Deer Lodge is  taken by Miss Jeanne Palmer, while  Mrs. Streetor at Erickson has given  place to Miss Ella Dow.  at Waldo. Miss Jeanne Palmer succeeds to the principalship at Deer  Lodge.  Huckleberry picking is now in full  swing, and the crop is reported to be  a dandy one.  Haying on the flats will commence  next week���������at least Geo. Leadbeater  has announced his intentions of commencing cutting then.  By both freight and express fruit  shipments ont of Erickson are very  heavy at present. Tomatoes are beginning to come in in much larger  quantities  Erickson is supplying several pupils  to the ^Creston superior school this  term. Among the scholars are Ruth  Klingensmith, Mabel Craigie, Stella  McKelvey and James Cameron.  Stocks & Jackson are taking off a  remarkably fine peach crop at Mountain View Ranch thisseason. Although  the Valley crop is generally light  they expect to have at least 200 crates.  ston  Touch the Spot  Pte. Wm. Johnson of tho 225th  Battalion, who has been home on  harvest leave from the camp at Vernon for the past thiee weeks, left for  Vernon on Tuesday.  Miss Ruth Cooper left the latter  part of the. week for Mon-issey where  she will be in charge of the public  school for another term.  Mr. 5)uncan, who had charge of the  school here last year, has accepted the  principalship of the school at Marys-  ville, and commenced his duties there  on Monday.  Ed. Penson has been notified of his  appointment as deputy returning  officer for the Wynndel polling station  on Sept. 14th. A  Es*icls������an  Roy Staples and family, who have  been living at Crebton for some  months, moved baek to tho ranch this  week.

Tho work of planting  tho poles will bo started the early part  of this month.  Mr, Poiison and family of Spokane,  who haye boon visiting Mr. and .Mrs.  W. Ponson, are leaving for homo this  week.  Mni. M. McLeod of Sandon, who hiin  boon a visitor with Mrs. F. J. Klingensmith for a couple of weeks, left for  home the curly part of tho wook.

Mr. Johnson arrived from the coast  on Saturday and will have the principalship of the Wynndel school this  year. Mrs. Sparkes, a former principal, who has spent the summer at  Newfoundland, went through on Friday, to Silverton.  Wynndel will be well represented  at the Labor Day dance at Creston as  dauces are pretty much out of the  question here, at least a half dozen of  our young men being away from town  for awhile.  Uri brothers arid Tom and Nels.  Andestad are decorating the Canyon  City section with sawdust and chips  so hard are thoy at it on the log-cutting contract thoy have takon with  the Canyon City Lumber Co. They  expect to finish tho job by early November, however.  John Johnson spent the week-end  with the finny tribe nt Kitchener,  He was in company with R. S. Bovan,  consequently the stories he tells of the  catch are subject to a Liberal discount.  Monrad Wigen has disposed of his  season's cut of lumber to J. S. Dos-  ohamps, the Nelson lumberman.  Thoro is close to 200,000 feet on hand,  which will bo planed and shipped to  tho prairie as fust as cars are available.  Thk Tkvikw noode a new correspondent at Wynndel.

Creston Board of Trade did a splendid little bit of publicity for tne Valley last week in forwarding to the  annual convention, at Calgary, of the  newspapermen of Alberta, a couple of  crates of peaches, which those moulders of public opinion refreshed themselves with at the closing session of  the conference on Friday. The fruit  was from the Boffey ranch, and was  in prime shape for eating, thanks to  the forethought of Manager Staples  of the Fruit Growers Union, who  sorted out the very best of five crates  on hand and packed them into the  two that went to the editors. The  Calgary papers all commented favorably on the incident,, remarking that  the Valley peac hes were almost equal  in excellence to the far-famed Creston  strawberries, which are becoming a  household word in Southern Alberta  particularly. President Reid has received the following acknowledgement of the gift:  Calgary, Alta., Aug. 20.  R. M. REID, Esq  President Board of Trade,  Creston, B.C.  Dear Sir,���������  I am'instructed by resolution of our  recent convention to convey to yom*  board our high appreciation of the  good wishes brought by your letter,  and thanks "for the boxes of fruit so  generously given.

Although we have been unable  to locate such provision we have it  on good authority that the sale of  ducks is prohibited this year, along  with deer, which may not be exposed for sale either.  The only ways in which it will  be possible to get vension or ducks  will be to take a gun and go hunting, or to chum np to some successful Nimrod who shoots more than  he needs for himself and is willing  to give the rest away. Sportsmen  all over the province have been  complaining ot the havoc caused  by market hunters. In certain of  the northern districts where food is  scarce a restricted sale of moose  and caribou meat   will be allowed.

With the shooting season due to  open to-day the following digest  of the 1916 Game Regulations will  be of interest to local sportsmen:  Tho season for geese opens on  September 1st and will close on  March 31st. The season for ducks  begins at the same timo, but closes  on Jannary 31st. It is provided  that no one shall take more than  250 ducks nor more than that  number of geese during the open  season.

The  longer we liyo here the more wo are  convinced that Canyon City gets only  what it goes out and gets aftor.  Miss Gertie Knott, who has been  visiting at Bow Island, Alta., has  secured a school at Foremost, Alta.,  and will teach there this yoar.  Mr. and Mrs. Marshall of Lethbridge  wore visitors here a fow days this  wook, with Mr, and Mm, Searle.  First hand information as to how  the Canadian Red Cross operates both  at the making end in Canada and the  assembling and distributing ends in  London, England, and the various  hospitals in the fighting area in France  as well as the hospitals in Britain,  was given in a splendidly delivered  and carefully put together lecture in  the Auditorium o.n Wednesday night.  The speaker was Capt. (Mrs.) Julia  Henshaw, a Vancouver lady, who  spent most oF the year looking into  the affairs of the Red Cross all along  the line for the Canadian parent  society.  Although the meeting was arranged  on little more than two days' notice  the Auditorium was well filled by a  thoroughly representative audience,  The Creston band orchestra rendered  several selections which materially  enlivened proceedings, and the chair  was ably filled by Henry Lyne, president of the Creston branch of the  Canadian Patriotic Fund. Another  pretty feature was the presentation of  a boquet of sweet peas to the speaker  by little Miss Annie Smith, which  Mrs. Henshaw graciousiy acknowiedg  ed.  The audience was agreeably surprised to hear the speaker's statement as  to the wonderful efficiency of the Seld  hospitals,   which she   assures are   as  woll equipped for surgical  work,   etc..  as any in the bigger cities of Britain.  The staff of doctors and nurses, too,  was equally as efficient.    Her  story  of   the care and handling a   wcunded  soldier teceives from the time he is  picked up wounded on  the field until  he gets into the hospifc-ils in England,  if his injuries are sufficiently serious,  was also effectively toid.  In f������ct her whole talk  had no un   interesting spots in. it; it:.-bristled  everywhere with the wonderfully  careful and humane treatment the  wounded are receiying, thanks to a  great extent to the abundance of supplies the Canadian Red Cross is sending along every day���������in such quantities that quite often it is possibie to  give the scantily-supplied French  hospitals the use of many articles they  are sorely in need of.  *UUpl/.   v igueuux, a i-miii'iieu   OiuCex-,  who was to have been hero also to tell  of the trench fighting, and incidentally secure recruits for the array medical  and ambulance corps, was una void  ably absent, and Mrs. Henshaw closed  her address with an appeal for men  for this branch of oyerseas service, for  which men unfit for the infantry could  often qualify.  At the close a vote of thircnks was  tendered the speaker on motion of  Major Mallandaine and Principal  Masterton, while to the leadership of  A. R, Swanson, who was along with  a party from Sirdar, three cheers and  a tiger woro also tendered Mrs. Henshaw. To defray some local expense  in connection with tho meeting a  collection was taken and $18 whs  realized.  Sirdair  Mx*s. Jones and Geo. Janson of  Kuslcanook woro Sirdar cullers on  Friday.

A German Prediction  Written  Mecca's Stone of Tears  Tradition  Says it Was    Once    Pure  White, But is Now Black  From Many Tears  Year bv year a great pilgrimage  consisting" of from 150,000 to 200,000  Moslems, make the journey to Mecca,  and it is on these occasions that daring men have risked thc dangers associated with such an enterprise, and  endeavored lo gain access to the Holy  City. But a wrong genuflexion, a  false word in one of thc prayers, a  little imniisitiveness in looking at  some fascinating rite has been their  undoing.  Thc cry has gone up, "A Christian,"  and the mob has rushed at them and  torn them limb from limb.  Meca is, indeed, the holiest ground  of thc Mohammedans, and the Mosque is the Holy of Holies. Thc building stands on ground which Arab tradition declares to be the centre of thc  world, ground which the Moslem believes to be a part of heaven on earth,  and which will return lo heaven at the  last day.  Inside Ihis building is thc sacred  black stone towards which ail mos-  lcms turn in worship. Acording to  Mohammedan tradition this stone was  given to Abraham by the Angel Gabriel, and was originally pure white,  its present dark color being due to the  tears shed for sins by the many pilgrims who visit the place annually.  Iu connection with thc pilgrimage,  it is worthy of note that last year it  -was the British government who arranged for thc safe conduct of the  "holy carpet" from Cairo to Jcddah,  the port of Mecca, and one of the  places captured by the Arabs.  the  Three    Days    Before  Grand Offensive  We must be quite just to the Germans.

Pressure  Believed to be One Cause of  Milk Turning Sour  It is common knowledge that milk*  is liable to sour and curdle more  quickly during a storm than it does  in normal weather.  Various theories have been advanc*  ed to explain this. A Frenchman has  quite recently suggested that the phenomena is related to the fact that because of the lowering of atmospheric  pressure during storms, the barometric reading always being low then.the  gases which are' in the lower portions  of the milk can more easily rise to the  top and thus promote the action of  the lactic acid bacteria.  Lightning has r.o direct effect and  thc only difference between the effect of summer and winter storms is  that in the summer the higher temperatures make the milk more susceptible to bacterial action.  # This seems to be a rational explanation. Thc souring of milk, being a  fermentation reaction in which bacteria cause the milk sugar to change  over into lactic acid, proceeds rapidly  or slowly according to conditions.  Care in keeping milk ��������� clean and as  free from bacteria as possible and  keeping it cold tends to lengthen the  period that it will stay sw.eet because  fermentation is retarded.  On the other hand, carelessness as  regards cleanliness and permitting  milk to stay warm have the opposite  effect because these conditions favor  the fermentation process.

Reaction products always retard  a chemical reaction unless removed  from the sphere of activity because  they usually 'end to set up some tort  of equilib.iur 1.  Since the rases rise more rapidly  t*> thc top and thus escap- when the  atmospheric pressure is low during  storms, this retarding effect which- is  normally exerted on milk fermentation is at least partially removed and  the milk sours more rapidly. This  suggests that if it w*cre possibleto  keep milk containers air-tight during  storm periods thc storm could: have  no effect.  merrily.

Thc location selected for setting out  thc pail should be in some open lot  or field unobstructed by large trees  or buildings. Jf the diameter of the.  pail is just 10 1-2 inches at the upper  edge, each ounce of water collected  represent 0.02 in. of rain fall. Thc  pail should hold twelve quarts, in fact,  most twelve-quart pails are exactly,  10 1-2 inches at their upper edge. The  depth of thc rainfall, as shown bythc  water caught, may be found by weighing the contents of the pail. An ordinary small balance which reads in  ounces nnd half ounces is suitable for  the purpose. In hol weather, when  water evaporates quickly, the record  should be made as soon as thc rain  has slopped, if possible.

Beneficial Conditions ResultFrom tbe  Prohibition Law in Kansas  An important statement was issued  by the Honorable C. W. Trickett, Assistant Attorney-General of the State  of Kansas, in the year 1907-concer-n-  ing thc working of the enforcement  cf the prohibition law of that state in  Kansas City, Kansas���������with a population of 100,000���������which adjoins _ the  even larger and even more widely  i-rinuin rsilroad centre known- as JCasi-  sas City, Missouri, where, liquor is  freely sold.  A year ago there were 256 saloons*  200 gambling houses, and about 60  houses of ill-fame. Now not one of  these evils can be found. . In. that  time the population has increased  more rapidly than ever before. The  merchants and storekeepers have had  to hire more help and the deposits in  thc banks have increased by one million and a half dollars.  Thc. attendance at thc public schools  has been so increased that 18 more  teachers have had to be secured. The  increase is mostly in boys and girls  between thc ages of 12 and .16, who,  before the closing of the sal6on, had  to go out to work to help maintain  the family because the father spent so  imi eh of his money on liquor.  The charitable institutions *. report  thai the demands for help have diminished two-thirds. Prior to the closing of saloons, the Juvenile Court had  each month from 8 to 88 children before it who needed help. There have  been only two such during the .past  eight months. During the past twelve  mouths, two young men have been  sent to the Reformatory as against 15  to 5 for previous years, Kxpenscs for  prosecuting criminals have gone down  $25,000 a year, and the cost of the  police force has born reduced as much  more.  A striking paragraph in Mr. Trick*  ell's statement is this: "A year ago thc.  city was trying to devise, ways and  means to spare the money to build  additions to our city jails.

The new* order includes mainly 6-inch and ninj point  2-inch shells.  So far Canada has delivered a little  over $200,000,000 -> orth of shells.    At  Cur  know-  acted  they  .known  involve  ideas which  arc  ccn  Juries old.  It_also appears that submarines  were built as early as thc beginning  of the-seventeenth century. The origin  of the invention is older still. Aristotle  teiis how Alexander the Great made  use of submarines during the siege of  Tyre more than 300 years before  Christ.  A Dutchman named Cornelius Van  Drebbel astounded London in 1620  with a submarine that held twelve  oarsmen and some passengers, among  whom was King James I.  Previous to this, in 1534 a monk  suggested the idea that a ship be  constructed of metal so as to be wat-  tertight and able to resist the pressure of water.  1 en  -   ~u:_  XDxIt ��������� <x    Slllp  _: 1.....      ~,.:i   Clggllty SrtllUJ ������,  with twenty cannon,  anu.  many    uags  Oi  money on board blew up and sank in  the port of Dieppe.  Three years later a Frenchman, Jean  Barric, called Pradinc, built, according  to the" old monk's ideas, a submarine  with which he promised to rescue the  bags of gold and silver from the  wreck, and possibly some pieces of  artillery.  Thc great Pascal, then a little boy,  was "an eye-witness to the experiments  of Pradinc, which were carried on till  1650 with ultimate success.  But it is not on record lhat any of  these submarines. were murderers of  little children.  To have the children sound and  healthy is thc first care of a mother.  They cannot be healthy if troubled  with    worms.    Use  Mother    Graves'  Wilhcbn II. visited Jerusalem and  crossed the Jordan in 1898, the first  European monarch to do so since the  days of the crusade. And .it transpires that when in Jerusalem he expressed thc hope that thc day would | prOVe it,  come when he would be able to ren-  aging nearly $1,000,000 worth per day  By the end of the year, Chahman  Flavclle, of the munitions board, says  the output will be at least $35,000,000  worth per month. About $300,000,000  worth of orders arc now in process of  being filled hv some four hundred  Canadian firms. Thc new fuse-making plant established near Montreal  is now in satisfactory operation and  Canada can now produce for Great  Britain over a score of thousands of  shells every day, all read}* for the artillery at the front to fire.  Thc chief difficulty now is that  there is a general scarcity of labor.  Thousands of men who might have  been available for munitions -work  have been recruited and sent to the  front . New workers are being trained but shell contractors report great  difficulty  in procuring them.  As one means of meeting the situation, the munitions board :s now urging the recruiting of women to work  in munitions factories. In Great Britain there are now tens of thousands  of girls and women employed and  their work has been of inestimable  value to the cause of the Allies. They  are easily tr. .'.ied to handle machines  and have proved competent and reliable workers. Chairman Flavelle  cays there arc thousands of women in  Canada who would be similarly available and who would be glad to do  essential war work. An illustrated  book of instructions on the employment and training of women munition  workers, issued by the ministry of  munitions, has been sent to every  manufacturer in Canada engaged on  munitions contracts. There are already hundreds of girls and women  employed in the shell factories of  Canada. They arc reported to be giving good satisfaction. More arc needed.  Sunlight and Fresh Air   Essential to  Health and Cleanliness  Sunlight is a great germicide  pioneer   grandmothers  did  not  much   about   germs,  but  they  on  modern     principles     when  hung their milk pails and strainers in  the sun" to sweeten," as they s.iicl.  Sunlight, as well as fresh air, should  be used as a part of the general processes of house cleaning. The thrifty  habit of shutting out the sun in order  to keep carpets and draperies from  fading indicates a large degree cf ignorance of modern methods of sanitation.  Thc airing and sunning of bedding  every week, all the year round, is a  most important part of good housekeeping, but one wliich is much neglected, especially by women who live  in flats, where science is very often  sacrificed to esthetics.  Therefore, it becomes imperative  that at house cleaning time the under  side of rugs, carpets, mattresses and  cushions should be exposed to the  sun and air for as long a period as  possible.  Sunlight is free to all.  Plants will not thrive without it.  Aninials love to bask in it.  Only man shuns it, and by doing so  he. incurs unnecessary danger from  tuberculous and other diseases.  ^s r  *r..-   ������  i  untario ������ eterinary- ;v>oilege |  Under the control of the Department ot Agriculture of Ontario���������Kstabliahcd 1863  Aflilltl-d Witk Tbe UoiTerti'jr oi Toroa'o.

It is high time that the rural sec-1  tions of America called to the towns  to mend their ways and their streets  This is our conclusion after a summer tour of hundreds of miles through  a prosperous country. We found highways in rural sections well kept and  comfortable, but there was a far different story in the small cities and in  the numerous towns and villages  through which we passed. Thc main  country roads were smooth boulevards compared with the streets in  thc average town or city. In some  places where the homes were handsome and the factories busy the  streets were full of holes.  It was a striking illustration of the  greatest road failure in America. Small  cities and towns have lagged. A roads  expert, who has recently travelled  over most of thc country, says the  fault is general. In thc past five  years the rural situation has vastly  improved, but thc small city and town  showing is sad. When you near a  settlement you begin to bump.  For this the explanation is that the  town or city has too much local politics. A banker said to us: "We have  two factions and each is so busy fighting thc other that nothing is done for  thc town." It is a great pity. Thc very  communities that ought to be_ahcad  on good thoroughfares arc behind.  Perhaps farmers might jog them into right action by taking their patronage to towns and cities that provide good streets to travel over.���������  Country Gentleman.  Use of Drag- Harrow       [  From an Address by the Hon. R. W. j  Motherwell " '  Thc history of thc harrow is as old ;  as  that of agriculture.       Wc are not j  told  by  the  cacrcd  writers     whether j  Adam used one in tho Garden of Eden  or not, but in any case it was invented  about that period.  In ancient time-.' only the lighter  soils were cultivated and the harrow  often coiii isted of branches of trees,  winch merely scratched the surface of  the ground. At first the work was  done by hand, hut in thc time of Job  we know that animals were used for  the purpose. He says: "Will the unicorn harrow the valley after thee?''  Even today in the remote districts  of Europe thc brush harrow is used.  But the march of progress does not  halt for the remote districts to fall*  into line. Wc find that the old "A" harrow which originally consisted of  thorn .bushes with cross bars attached  had developed among the Romans into a system of cross bars in which  were inserted numerous teeth.  This remained the standard until  the sixteenth century. Since then thc  evolution has been as follows: wooden"  frame with wooden teeth, wooden'  frame with iron teeth and those made  wholly of iron. Thc second type is  still used to a considerable extent.  In dry farming- practice, probably  no other implement plays so important a part in moisture conservation  as does the drag harrow. If we did  not have the harrow the much talked i  of "soil mulch" would be very "hard  to obtain. There are other implements on the farm which we could  use to produce this mulch, but thei  small acreage covered by them in a  day makes the cost of production so  great that their use is prohibitive.  The two outstanding features of the  harrow in producing a mulch are the  rapidity with which the work can be  accomplished and the efficiency of the  work done.  Not only is the harrow a splendid  implement to use in producing or restoring a mulch but is beneficial also  as a packer. In a newly ploughed  iand especially', the harrow teeth go  well into thc ground, breaking up the  lumps right through the furrow "slice,  compacting the soil, and thus materially aiding the capillary action of the  moisture.  For every pound of dry matter produced in a plant about six hundred  pounds of water arc absorbed. Experiments have proven that a single stick  of the harrow has checked evaporation to the extent of one hundred tons  of water per acre. This is equivalent  to an additional yield of four bushels  of wheat per acre.  As a weed eradicator, the harrow  is indispensable, but when it is tb be  used for weed destruction the weeds ,  should never be allowed to get beyond their second leaves. When thc  weeds are at this stage, on a warm  dry day, the harrow will kill millions  of them. In summer-fallowing from  thc time the land is shallow* ploughed,  double  disced the previous fall until  TheLights  Of 65 Years Ago  Are still doing- duty ia  the shape of  Sixty - five years ago  the firstCanadian-made  Matches were made at  Hull by Eddy and  since that time, for  materials and striking  qualities, Eddy's have  been the acknowledged best.

Thc method to employ in harrowing a young grain crop will depend on  the object of the harrowing. If it is  done.,to restore a mulch and to stimulate growth the time selected should  be when thc work will injure, the  young plants as little as possible. This  will be when thc plant is just showing above'the ground and again when  the grain is three or four inches high.  If the harrowing is to destroy young  weeds we must expect some of the  grain to be destroyed also. When  this is to be done the sowing should  be thicker than usual to allow for injury, High framed long toothed h.-.r-  rows are best adapted for this purpose, Camo, should be taken that it  does not track, for if this occurs the  grain will bu damaged while little  harm will be done to the weeds,  Damage is often done to growing  crops by harrowing when lhe leaves  are wet and full of water as they  arc moro crisp and lender at thi*;  time than on a warm, dry day, This  is especially so in harrowing* a corn  crop, Also, it tho hind is wet Un* harrow \ccih will gather soil and rubbish  and null otU considerable grain, If  harrowing is done when the ground is  too \vet, a great: deal of the grain may  be pulled out or covered, with consequent loHii \q the ���������farmer,  Hy barrowing    \\u\ soil when ii  is  Cook's Cottoa Roof CotapmseiL  A s*s/e\ reliable rftr^ciiinffi  medicine.

The bill to provide the  franchise for ladies is very short  and simple but covers the ground  very thoroughly���������and if favorably  voted upon becomes effective in  March next. Here are the measures!  all important sections:  "Upon the coming   into   force of  this   Act,   it  shall be   lawful   for  temaies to have their names placed  upon the register of voters   for  an  electoral   district,   and   to   vote   at  nny election of members to serve in  tiie    Legislative    Assembly,    upon  rhe same terms, in   the same manner, and subject to the same conditions   as    males;     and   thereafter  females shall be   capable  of  being  elected as members of the  Legislative Assembly upon thesame terras,  iu the same manner, and subject to  the same conditions as males.  "Where the name of any female  registered voter is changed in consequence of her marriage, it shall'  be lawful for the Registrar of Voters  to cause the register of voters to  be amended accordingly."  Kindly read, mark, learn and  inwardly digest them, to the end  that if you vote "yes"' and later on  discover more "kick" to the legislation than you anticipated you  cannot accuse The Review of not  giving opportunity to discover whether the measure was loaded or no.  equally  as  effective  as  under the  present system.  As to fire wardens, while it is  possible we have a few too many  of these, who on occasions are put  on duty before the season really  warrants such a patrol, at the  same time they are employed on a  very necessary mission���������one forest  fire getting away unnoticed will  destroy much more value in standing timber than is at present paid  out in fire-warden salaries. If the  prevailing system is topheavy with  salaries by all means put the  service on a business footing, but  not at the expense of protective  efficiency. Our timber resources  are far too valuable an asset���������-and  growing more so every year���������to  practise any false economy, such, as  suggested by Mr. Brewster.  A provincial policeman may be a  man of many parts but even were  he superman he could hardly do  satisfactory justice to enforcing tne  civil, criminal and weed laws, the  game act and the prevention of  forest fires, even were he outfitted  with a chariot, and two stenographers to handle the inevitable office  routine���������and inspect the brands  and hides, collect traders nnd auto  licenses, take an occasional prisoner  to Nelson, serve blue papers, attend  court sittings, etc., etc.  You will bo wanting your share of the feathered beauties, of course. To be sure  of thoni good ammunition is a necessity and in this line UMC SHELLS are the  very best obtainable���������sportsmen the Dominion over are agreed as to this fact.  Sportsmen who want black powder shells���������get the NEW CLUB. Its a 30-year old favorite���������and it must  be ''some shell" to make good for that length of time.

General  Mounted Poliee  Opposition leader Brewster's  suggestion, made at his Oreston  meeting on August ]9th, that in  reorganizing the provincial civil  service he would be in favor of  making the provincial police a  mounted outfit and call upon them  to do the duties of weed inspector,  game guardian and fire warden, is  not a half bad one at that, though  we fancy if he is chosen to head  our next local government he will  find his policy of combining four  in one a trifie too big a contract  l'or one and the same individual to  satisfactorily execute.  The doubling tip, of police and  weed inspection work looks like  quite an ideal combination���������one  that would ensure effective weed  destruction at the minimum cost.  At least, we feel sure, it would  work out that way in the Creston  Valley. With all deference to  Inspector Shannon there can be  no question that if some responsible  local citizen had boon provided with  the  money   paid   the inspector  in  Creston  ������������������alary and expenses \\u  tr tt  jy. v .  right  of way would not have produced  such a luxuriant growth of thistles,  to siiy nothing of other patches  here and tliere across the Valley.  And lo ensure strict attention to  Thin detail there is nothing like  having the request supported by  the authority of a hluccoat.  In instances, too, it in possible  the poliee might iiIho efficiently sec  thnt. the gunn* lnws are respected,  (.hough ih'-'io olfic'-r-i are hardly  numerous enough to Muperviw* the  whole province.

E. Scott, deputy minister of  agriculture, concludes with this  practical observation: "How can  we bring back prosperity and provide work for all ? There is only  one answer, and that is that the  right people must be put on the  right land."  Besides being the essence of  practicability Mr. Scott's observation is most opportune seeing  that the question of how to provide  for our returned soldiers is being  grappled with .and very much is  being heard as to putting the men  on the land.  With the suggestion that these  men be set up in agriculture THE  REVIEW has no quarrel, provided  every care is taken that only likely-  looking agriculturists are so disposed of. To indiscriminately bequeath 50-acre tracts in B.C., or  quarter-sections in the prairie  provinces, on our returning heroes  and bid them go to it or bust  would spell out undeserved calamity  to very many of the brave boys,  to say nothing of a bit of similar  misfortune to the various sections  of the country on which these  agricultural misfits were wished.  The fallacy that any fool can  fariti (or ranch) has been responsible  for too many failures already to  be experimented with, particularly  on the scale of this returoed-  soldiers proposition. While agriculture is the basic industry and  the foundation of prosperity in any  country, such a much to he desired  state of things can only bo consummated hy getting the right  people on the land in the right way.  the suggestion for a demonstration  farm where demonstration work ih  various lines can be carried out  with the maximum of efficiency.  And, in time,, why not go further,  and on those demonstration farms  give these short courses in agriculture which, latter are shortly to be  features of the B.C. university  work.  Agriculture requires learning like  any other business or profession,  and no one can be expected to make,  a success of it till he understands  the underlying principles and their  proper application. The ideal  place to get this instruction is  where surroundings, conditions and  facilities ax*e somewhat on a par  with those that obtain in practical  every day farming. Too, if we are  to do the greatest good to ihe  greatest number these institutions  muss be easy of acess both as to  finance and distance���������two factors  militating seriously against the  university idea, insofar as the B.C.  interior goes at least.  All the circumstances conspire  together to make Creston the ideal  location for the Kootenay institution of this sort, and in this agricultural encouragement and development era Messrs. Keen and Long  will please take notice and govern  themselves accordingly.  Assisting Agriculture  Adverting still further* to Mr.  Scott's admirable nrtiolo it is satisfactory to note that tho province's  foremost agriculturist and TUB  Review arc agreed on tbo advsi-  ability and value of reliable, at-  home demonstration and instruction. On thin point ho says: "A  good capable resident instructor  Hhould be appointed in each settlement, who, by advice and demonstration, would help the settlers to  get the best returns from the land."

However, thc icy waters of Lake Winnipeg  form  its  chief    feeding    grounds;  at  Black Bear Island a fishery is under  operation, the "catch" being forwarded principally to New York and other  centres of the    United States.

Within waterways cf muddy surface swims the catfish, a species    devoid of scales and  spoken of in the United States as the  northern  salmon.    It is  not  possible  to catalogue ��������� he dog fish as fitting for  human   consumption;   this   species_ is  utilized by the Indian as bait for pike  of the larger size.

And when I asked him- to go on  and explain, he said:  "Out of this turmoil and slaughter  a few blessing are bound to emerge,  like, lilies from the sand of a pond,  hor one thing I *>ee a return from a.  highly material, lo a more spiritual  form of everyday life. For another  I believe the minds of the masses will  be lifted by the war in a vision of bigger things.  "No man can go through such an  experience and remain the petty creature he was at the beginning. H: can  not go back to !m awl and his last  and pick up bristle and thread just  where he left off.  "War hardens, but war educates;  one must be different afterwards;  one must be wiser."  The pastor-philosopher was not  speaking of thc soldiers of France  alone. He included all peoples affo-t-  ed by the war���������the English, thc  French, the Germans, the Austrians  and the Russians.  His inference Avas that France will  be a different country after thc war.  So will Germany and England and  Russia and all  the others.  Russia is bound to be a new Russia. That is one of the things the  war means to this mighty empire. It  Western Europe will be changed  through this Armgeddon, hov/ much  more so will the Europe of the East  where the people are comparatively  young.  '1 bese are thc things implied bv  Pastor Wagner.  Russia, in fact, has already changed, already started on the new road.  Thc American coming to Russia  expects to find things more centralized than in l-rancc or England. He  expects to see the government working independently, above and apart  from thc people because in the past  the government has played the part  of the parent looking after the needs  of thc child, or the people. To his  surprise he observes nothing of the  kind. He finds ihe Russian people  working for and with the government.  He discovers two great armies in  the land, one in uniform, under arms,  fighting. The other in plain clothes,  or overalls, at bench and lathe, working. The government's agent, the  general stalf, commands both and coordinates their efforts.  Through their All-Russian Zemstvo  Union, their All-Russian Municipality  Union, their Central Committee, their  War Industry Committees, their Cooperative societies and kindred organizations, Russian plain people and  Russian gentry are working hand iu  hand, collaborating with the government and army for the good of thc  country al large and for victory.  Never before have thc people  shown sucli,an eagerness to do public service and never before, have they  displayed such an aptitude for it.  ��������� No one here makes any secret of  these things. 1 have talked to many  pcoplc high and low and the facts  which I haye attempted to set down  in this scries of articles arc recognized as showing thc new trend in  Russia.  "War hardens, but war educates,"  said Wagner. Aud it "lifts the minds  of thc masses to higher visions."  One can see it working out hero in  Russia, even with the naked eye. Thc  people have demanded to be put to  work for thc public good. Jobs have  been given them, they have set to  work aud  already  thev love  il.  Brotherly Love of Nstions  Why   German   Antipathy   Is Shown  More Against Britain Than  France or Russia  Apparently  the   Germans   have  de������,  cided that if they must be licked they  would rather be licked by the French  than by  the  British.    They arc still  "strafing"    England.    This    does not  mean, by any means,    that the Germans   have    come to    the conclusion  that they will have to be licked, but  merely that the3>- will take no chances.  That must be the meaning    of their .  operations against the drive    of    the  allies    on    the western front*-    Paris  as  well  as   London,     saj's     that  the  Germans are making a more desperate  resistance  to    the  British  offensive than    they . are    to    the French  offensive,    that they are opposing it  with more guns and more men, and  that    they are  directing    their reinforcements to that part of the front.  In  both   capitals   this   explanation  is  given  bf  thc   greater  progress  made  by the French.  This German antipathy to, Great  Britain is also disclosed, no doubt  unwillingly, in thc Berlin official announcements. It is a feeling that is  easily explained. But for Great  Britain Germany's task would have  been comparatively easy. First the  British navy, next British financial  resources, and >.stly British soldiers  and munitions have been the chief  obstacles to Germany's military success. They have blocked her at  every stage of the war, and now they  threaten to turn the tide of battle  against her. It is hardly to be wondered at that Germany is quite willing to have God punish England, al-  j though the circumstances can hardly  justify such heathenish expressions of  hate as are contained in Ernst Lis-  sauer's notorious verses.���������Hartford  Courant.  The Puzzled German People  The people" of Germany are beginning to get angry wdth their rulers because of the privations they  are forced to endure.  The rulers are in an awkward position. They have made the people  believe that Germany has won victories on land and sea, and the people begin to think it is time the victorious kaiser should stop the war  and rest content, having gained Belgium, a large part of France, a good  deal of Poland, and thc mastery of  the sea.  How is Berlin to tell the German  people that all these boasted victories amount to nothing���������that the  British navy is still on the job, and  that the kaiser's armies would be destroyed if they tried to jump up and  run home?  The people are rioting in 20 cities  and they will have to be told the  truth very soon. One leading German paper hints at it in saying that  the Allies will offer Germany no  peace but a shameful one." And such  as it is Germany must in thc end accept it. The people will have to be  told.���������Toronto Star.  The    Greatest    Asset of Democracy  The greatest contribution (it says')  that Great Britain has made lo the  war is not the number of men she has  put in the field, or the. munitions she  has turned out, or the ships whieh  hive Mailed the seas, hut lhe uiil>r.>\-  ei^ front, solidarity, a stubborn len-i  achy of the nation as a whole.
