Potato shipping has been very much  to the fore this week, the Fruit Growers Union and Roy Telford both loading a car���������the latter* going west.  Another end-of-the-week shipment  was a second ear of apples which  Messrs. Craigie and Penson sent to  Calgary, Alta.  E. N. Holmes, who has been here  for some days finishing up fall operations on his ranch, returned to Coleman, Alta., on Monday.  The trustees   are evidently figuring  on a winter similar to last.    They are  calling for tenders for 12 cords of wood  for the school, bids to be in by   the  18th.  Alex. Duperry and some of the1 other  growers are getting ready for cider-  making operations. There is a great  call for the real genuine Creston Valley apple juice in Alberta this year,  and much of tho' low grade and cull  apples grown hereabouts will be disposed of in this way.

Wright and associates  of Calgary for the Kitchener and  North Star mineral claims situated  on Kuskanook mountain, three miles  from here. A substantial payment  has been made, with another to follow  in sis months, and the balance within  the year. Although the exact amount  is not given it is understood the price  runs into five figures. Mr. Wright is  now on the grounds superintending  the erection of a bunkbouse, etc., and  intends to put a crew to work on  development this winter.

The schoolhouse had the real  hallowe'en appearance, a couple of  likely looking spooks being on guard  at the door, and black catsand witches  very prominent all over the building,  while Miss Jennie Nicholls garbed in  oldtime gipsy fashion presided over  the witches cauldron from whence was  extracted many fortunes of good and  ill flavor concerning the future of the  fortunate or unfortunate drawee.  The youngsters had a big time, at  the various competitions solving  proverbs, peeling apples, cutting out  paper animals, etc. There was also a  brief musical programme, to which JL.  Mawson contributtd a violin solo,  Misses Bessie White and Frances  Knott a vocal duett, and Messrs. W.  and P. Truscott a duett instrumental,  with Trustee Eric Oleson presiding as  chairman.

On  October 30.  to Mr.  and   Mrs.   Ernie  King (nee Mabel Smith), a son.  Considering the wet night and the  bad roads the hallowe'en social at the  schoolhouse last Friday night was well  attended, and about $13 was raised by  way of a silver collection for the  Belgian Children's Relief Fund.  The monthly report for the Huscroft  school for October shows an enrollment  of 11 scholars and a daily ayerage  attendance of 9.82 to be exact. Ernest  Eunerson is the only pupil to score a  perfect attendance, however.  The Canyon   City  Lumber   Co.   is  opening still another camp next week,  which will be in charge of Tom Ross.  He will have a crew of about a dozen "  men.  ' 'MissT Whitehead left oh Tuesday for  Spokane, where she will visit friends  for a-few days.

The growi in-  The continued heavy fighting in  France provides Creston with its'  usual quota of two or more casualties  again this week. This trip it is Pte.  Russell Leamy and Corp. Harry  Bathie, who are reported confined to  hospital with wounds.  First reports us to Pte. Leamy, who  went into training almost two years  ago with the Second Contingent, were  that ho was missing, but this morning  a wire came from the militia authorities that he is being cared for at No.  3 Casualty Clearing Station, suffering  from a wound in the back, sustained  in the fighting on October 8th. Pte.  Loamy, it will be remembered, had  been out of the fighting for almost a  year, recuperating from rheumatism  and tronch fever, and it was only toward the end of September that he  was able to get back into action; consequently he must havo encountered  his wound some ten days after going  on duty.  Corp. Harry Bathie is a son of John  Bathie of Wymidul, and who enlisted  ut Calgary with the 50th Battalion.  Ho has been at the front for almost  five montliH.

Sir   I'cnywern   was  deeply  touched  thc mysterious expedition into the  wood.  Seeing his movement, Urown dtcw  back his hand  with  the paper.  But Sir iVnywein recovered his  self-possession, seized thc young  man's hand, and took thc paper from  him.  Brown did not wait for another  word from him, hut saluting him respectfully and with a shy glance, not  without compassion, turned and made  ott rapidly across thc grass between  the  clumps  of  ornamental  firs.

There is a reference to it in the Bible���������in the"'Book of Job���������and the first  sculptured remains of a horse which  thc archaelogists have brought to  light are those of an animal accoutred  for war.

The Live Stock Journal of London  (Kng.) comments as follows on the  situation:  "On  the  western   front,  it  is  true,  the    opportunities    for    work in the  saddle have been few, comparatively,  and on the extensive lines of    com-  ,  A,      .    .       r   _       .,  it. r munication the motor-mechanic    .ias  ?L  .VL'������ y Rathbone  from  ]argcly supcrseded the groom.

Rathbone was certainly dead when he discovered thc body under the couch,  and the mystery of what became of  liim was as engrossing as ever.  Where  was   the  body?  Did  Fenner know?  He shook his head slowly.  "Stories have got about."  "What's a story? There's only one  thing, if I may makc so bold, Sir  Penywern, as could put any strength  into a story, and that would be listening to them as tells it."  It was probable that the butler suspected thc visitors hc had admitted  of late on two occasions, and Sir  Penywern shot an inquiring glance at  him.  "You mean if they  snubbed,  their  stories  ter?"  "That's it, exactly, Sir Penywern.  But I'm afraid, sir, some people, with  all due respect, haven't got the nerve  to turn the deaf ear they should."  Sir Penywern faced him steadily.  "In other words, Fenner, you think  blackmail is being levied, and paid  by-.* someone who, God help her!  hasn't experience enough or confidence enough in herself, to know that  she is doing the worst possible tiling  for  everybody?"  The butler met his master's eyes  with that distant, reserved sympathy  which was more touching than the  loudest utterances would have been.  "Yes, Sir Penywern. 1 do think  so, sir."  The baronet nodded. "Well, Fenner so do  I."  There flashed from eye to eye between master and man one of those  rapid telegraphic flashes of sympathy  and understanding, of gratitude and  respect, that help men to realise their  common brotherhood, their common  humanity.  Then Sir Penywern looked away,  the butler looked down, and each  went on speaking ns quietly as if nothing  had  happened.  "If only, Sir Penywern, others were  to stand j'uiii, all would conic right  jn 'limr-. Nothing would ever bc  found."*  i to their turn matters looK very  indeed,"     said  Sir  Penywern,    as he  went out of the room.  He meant to interview another man  -who knew something, the ,young tinder-gardener, whom he had found  stooping over the wheelbarrow.  He found him in his best clothes  about to leave thc "rounds for the  village of Seamarsh, where his sweetheart lived.  "Well, Brown," said his master,  "off to the village, I suppose?"  "Yes,   sir."  Thc young man was very shy, and  he looked furtively at his interlocutor.^  "juo you remember rny finding you  hanging over a wheelbarrow outside  the shed, one evening, nearly a fortnight ago?"  the  house.  Just a little pile of small glass  beads, lying in thc folds of the paper. But they were unmistakably  the irridescent beads which formed  the border of a handsome evening  cloak which Daphne wore when she  went into thc grounds with him after  dinner.  He put them into his pocket with  a trembling hand and turned to go  back to the house.  He must see Daphne at once.  (To Be Continued.)  Care o������ British Graves  The following is an extract from a  letter received from a soldier at thc  front: "Considerable care is exercised in the registration and upkeep of  the graves of British troops.

The Songbird Silenced  British   Soldier's   Letter '^Tells   of   a  Tragedy of the Trench  The following little story of the  trenches is contained in a letter from  a British soldier in France:  "The Saxons used to have a chap  with them named Paul, who had a  lovely voice and used to sing all the  latest songs. He was easily heard in  our front trenches, and his songs  were enjoyed by our fellows as well  as  the  German*).  "One day when things were quiet  there was no singing and one of our  men called out to the Germans, 'Tell  Paul to sing.' Back came the answer,  preceded by a string of guttural German curses: 'You chuted Paul yesterday.' "���������Baltimore News.  A country couple were visiting  London for  the first time.

Shakespeare's cry, "O, ior a  horse with wings" has figuratively  found an answer. None the less, the  work of the remount depots has excelled in importance and exceeded in  volume that of any previous war.  "Germany all along has been spectacular with the ingenuities of warfare, and when the work of the Uhlans tried to screen the dash through  Belgium, and sensational stories  gained currency of the pre-war activity in our midst of the enemy's  horse-buying agents, it was thought  by many that our remount department had been enjoying a, Rip Van  Winkle sleep. When the veil of secrecy with which the1 censor has  shrouded all the ramifications of thc  war is lifted the nation will find in  this, as in other directions, that John  Bull, though apparently nodding  pleasantly in the land of dreams, had  one eye open, and his brain was  alert and planning. The machinations of the enemy's agents served to  give a stimulus, perhaps sometimes  needed, to horse breeding in our rural districts, and when, on the eve of  war, gambles were made abroad in  cargoes of horses there were many  chuckles in this country at the way  in which the vigilance of our navy resulted in unexpected acquisitions to  our equine stocks.  "In dwelling on remount work :.i  Britain, it would be idle to look to  th-J main British front for tangible  results of the manifold labors or thc  heavy expenditure. Attention i-.ust  be directed to all the theatres of war,  and interest centred in the distances  and the nature of the country wliich  separated thc advancing or defend-  in-V forces from their bases. They  arc not all native-born horses which  have carried the men, thc food and  thc interminable paraphernalia of war  into the war .lone. Even if there  were not many mounted units vvith  the divisions concerned, horses, mules  or donkeys have been and are wanted  for paths wliich the motor transport  cannot follow, and though pictures  are published of tractors with heavy  guns there are other guns which  teams of horses arc needed to bring  into action."  ine Jt-arm Home  In the country and everywhere in������  efficiency is due to a lack of the right  kind of education and to a wanton  w*aste of health and strength. Magnificent types of women have been  developed under thc opportunities of  the open country. The administration of a home in thc country demands and develops the whole powers of a highly endowed person. The  existence of the race, the health and  education of the child,' the ideals of  young men and women are in turn  entrusted to the keeping of whoever  makes a home. The use and apportionment of a scanty income in order  that thc intellectual and social natures may expand presents a problem  as brain-racking almost as financing  a world war. An alert interest in  community matters like the school  and the church broadens sympathies  and enlarges usefulness.���������Breeders'  Gazette.  "So you spent a quiet vacation on  the farm?"

Shipments  of  Wheat Being Sent to  Calgary Elevator This Year  Several shipments of wheat have  been received at the Calgary government elevator consignd from Ver-  toon, Enderby and Armstrong, and  more is, expected later, as threshing  is completed.  This is the first time any grain  from the western province has been  sent eastward, and this is entirely  due to the facilities which are offered  at Calgary for storage and grading.  Of course the premium which cash  grain is commanding at the terminals makes th** eastern market look  inviting to the farmers of interior  B.C. points. While there is a market for milling grain at the coast, it  is a spasmodic one, and there is not  the premium there that is obtained  on Fort William shipments. If thc  shipping facilities at the coast in the  ���������way of ocean transportation was normal the coast elevators would^ likely  get this grain. Conditions just-at  present, though, are- not favorable.  From -information which has been  received in Calgary it is estimated  there will be about two hundred cars  of grain to ship from these points.  At present it is being sent in sacks  down as far as Caigary and reloaded.  iivuiu narsn mis.  ���������when people cannot afford to accept  anything but the very best for their  money.

'  Find Lost War Papers  One of the curious requirements  growing out of the rush of war work  is the need of a staff of "searchers"  at the War Office to look up lost documents. The "searchers" make their  rounds early every morning. Very  often.xin. the pressure of many kinds  of work, an important war record  will get laid aside ^or covered up on  some desk, and it "is- the business of  the "searchers" to ferret out every  lost record and get it back again in  "the   regular  channels.  Weeds on Railroad Tracks  In order to check the growth of  vegetation along railway tracks, a  weed burner has been designed  which accomplishes the work reasonably quickly, and at an expense  that is not prohibitive. Gasoline is  used as fuel and supplied froin a tank  mounted at the top of the ^contrivance,-which is carried on a low truck.  Burners arranged so that they extend  across and along the ground are held  very close to the ground, enabling  the flames to come in contact with  the weeds. The central part of the  device is covered by a shield which  fits over the burners and prevents the  heat from escaping into the atmosphere. When in use it is pushed by  a locomotive.  Government Only Carrying Out  Plain Duty in Enforcing  the Policy  The policy of the blacklist was that  this country thought it reasonable  that its property, its system of credit,  and its system of shipping should not  be placed at the disposal of its enemies. If a man was quite clearly  an enemy of this country, whether or  not technically a German, Austrian or  Turk, we said we had a right to forbid our own subjects to trade with  him, because by so doing they were  assisting thc enemy and increasing  his power to kill our own soldiers.  That was a broad principle, he  thought, incapable of being attacked.  He did not believe there was any  country, including the United States,  ���������which, if engaged in such a contest  as we now were, would hesitate^ to  carry out a policy of the same kind.  It was quite plain that when a criminal offence was created public notice must be given of the persons who  must not be dealt with. People could  not be left to find it out by possibly  receiving a summons through a police court for transgressing the law.  That was the reason for publication.  I When the policy of this country was  I understood the criticisms on it would  be seen to be quite misconceived,  and it would be recognized that in  doing what they had done the government had only carried out their  plain duty.���������Lord Robert Cecil, in the  British  Parliament.

They arc throwing off  a disease. And in throwing off this  disease they arc feeling the delight of  returning health.

But at present our  aim is to sell our grain to Italy and  France���������and for that purpose we require Constantinople. We don't cave  who guards the Suez Canal.

Where "Anzac" Was Derived  Many newspaper readers have wondered just why thc troops  from the  Antipodes    came   by   their   popular  nickname    of    ''Anzac."   ' Reference  worlcr,  have been  ransacked without  shedding    any illumination    on    the  mystery, but an explanation is forthcoming.    In the introduction to thc  volume bearing the title of "The Anzac Book," T.ieutenatit-Gcncral Sir W.  R. Birdwood says that the appellation  of "Anzac" is purely arbitrary in its  origin,   j'When I took the command  of tbe  Australian and New Zealand  Con''.,"  c.M'luifi.s  Gcu.  liirdwood,  "in  Kgypt I  was  asked to select a  telegraphic    code address   for my army  corps,    and  then    adopted  thc word  'Anzac'"    This code word was popularized  when  Gen,  Birdwood, after  landing bis forces at Gallipoli, named  thc    beach    whereon they debarked  "Anzac Cove."  .

Owner and Editor.  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY. NO\ . 10  The Next IVlove  Now that the people of Australi a  have voted against conscription by  quite a decisive majority, Canadians are more anxious than ever  as to what the Borden government [ article to the leading Canadian  proposes   to  do  when   the   newly-! journals as well   as   those  overseas  standard from gold to the nation's  vs.-lu.s.t'ion as a "'ivdiicin5*'' s^eno*7.  Mr. Wigen's system may be introduced forthwith with little or no reorganization of present day commercial life, except as it effects, to  some degree, the nation's money  supply.  The author, of course, only states  his case on broad general terms.  The details have to be worked  out and in this process doubtless  something better than he has outlined may be evolved. To that  end  he  is  sending reprints   of the  November  WCl  --.-  - "f-t 4- l-������ f^m*m  WCCttllV^l  las not  coming  IS    iicic,   cuj-U    cUUiUUgii  tne   COOici ,  arrived it  is assuredly on  the way.     Against its  we announce a full stock  in seasonable goods like  appointed National Service Commission concludes its labors and  turns in its many-detailed report.  In a recent statement R. F.  Green, M.P., who is the commission's   director   for   B.C..    pointed  and across the line.  The suggestion certainly comes  at the psychological moment.  With the closer knitting together  of the nations that   are  lighting in  a common cause against the Hun,  out that the main business of the j now would seem to be the opportune  organization    is    to    take    caretui j moment for these   same   powers.to j  These   are   all   attractively-priced and will  give  general satisfaction  B ������������������ TBI  stock of   Canada's man  power, and  then proceed to   decide   who of the  be   devising   ways   and   means  to  make the present  military   friend-  available are required to keep the ! ships but the forerunner of a still  home fires burning and the wheels j greater co-operative effort that  of industry revolving to produce the I should mean much to the permanent  munitions and other commodities I prosperity and national develop-  essent-iai to Canada's upkeep in i ment and greatness of all the  wartime- | nations assenting thereto.  Of the remainder Mr. Green remarks, "We have nothing to do  directly with recruiting, but undoubtedly   when   the   classification j  of the men is made it will be found j     There is still one   more   pay day  that   there are  a large number of j for    the    Creston    branch    of   the  men in Canada who. in the opinion j Canadian Patriotic   Fund.     Of the  of the board, might well be   sought {almost ������2100 subscribed by various  A splendid line of these, in  all the sizes, and at prices that are right  general  $400 Behind  as recruits or   persuaded  to enlist." i  As     seemingly     every    possible j  method of   "'persuading"    men    to  enlist   has   been    tried    and    now  found   wanting   in   the   matter   uf  getting the right class���������or  indeed,  any���������recruits,    one      cannot   help  wondering      if     the    government,  when the   commission   report is to  hand, will spring  conscription and  make  a  quick  job of  it   by thus  being in   possession   of  the   ranies  and whereabouts  of  all   the available men, or will   they turn loose a  few   thousand returned   soldiers or  other recruiting evangelists directlj*  upon those who can best be spared  for empire preservation.  In view of Australia's turn down  of conscription and the failure of  present-day persuasion to gather  in enough men to equalize the  Canadian losses now going on, the  Borden government is facing the  most stupendous issue of its career,  in the satisfactory solution of  which Canadians will be called  upon to submerge political feelings,  stand   shoulder  make sacrifices for the common  cause of humanity tliat few are  dreaming of just at present.  *\mJ & iflkl  Creston .-���������  c i i h .   m^ t"^   Ct \Crn1 S^O  -    British Columbia  citizens hereabouts   last   December  some -$442 is still in arrears;  Due to removals and other  causes it was to be expected there  would be an unfavorable dis-  crepany between the total amount  guaranteed anu tne sum totar oi  the money paid in. After making  due allowance iu all such cases,  however, it has been found that of  the amount overdue at least $300  of it may reasonably be set down as  collectable.  While, as all of us are more or  less painfully aware, this has been  a bit of a lean year, and our  finances have fallen short of what  we had hoped for, at the same  time the revenue has not been quite  so slender but that with a little  special effort, or by effecting a little  economy here or there���������or perhaps  by making some little sacrifice���������we  should all be able to meet in full  our obligations to this cause���������or  almost so.  Of those who may be  in arrears  in   their   payments   we  ask   your  to   shoulder   and|conn a,lC^ neHt  consideration.    The  boys out in the trenches have gone  forth prepared to make the  supreme sacrifice if need be���������and  in any case sure to como back with  health impaired. When one compares the risk tliey (and thus  indirectly their dependants) are  prepared to tako, the inconvenience  the average citizen may be put to  to make good his promises to the  fund is as small as the Germans'  chances to triumph in this tremendous struggle.  It is a good thing to atop once  in awhile and size things up. If  all concerned will givo this matter  mature deliberation most of us  should have paid iu full receipts  from the fund by the end of the  month. This is no donation, hut  tho payment of a just debt���������one  that should always bo nt tho top  of tho bills payable pile until fully  liquidated.  1-*  Mr.Wigen'mi* Letter  Of course you read O. J. Wigen's  article, "The Nation's Re-Birth  After the War," which appeared  in last week's issue. It possibly  looked a wee bit lengthy, but he  was dealing with a very large  subject, and it is doubtful if a more  experienced writer could have  discussed tho question aa succinctly  in less space.

Due to the  excessive overseas demand for  dressed meat of aii sorts both the  Canadian and XT S. railways find  themselves vory short of refrigerator  cars to take care of tho business  offering.

Here it is:  When your grocer asks you 8 cents  a pound for sugar that was once half  that sum, he will probably- tell yon  that-it was Lhe 'war" that raised  prices. Whenever you buy canned  goods, pastry, candy for the kids, or  anything else with sugar in it you  will be informed that the reason the  price has doubled is because sugar has  gone up.  The sugar trust was one of the  first of the great combinations to be  formed. When it was organized a  number of refineries were closed because economies in production made  it possible to produce all that could  be sold at a few of the refineries.  Then stock was issued to several  times the value of all the properties.  One of the reasons the United  States went to war with Spain was  to protect tin* sugar trust interests in  Cuba, and the annexation of tho  Philippines and Porto Rico was to  help along the same combination.  The sugar trust has also been  "busted" and "investigated" several  times. It was caught with fake scales  in New York defrauding the government out of millions of dollars. It  was prosecuted, convicted, and then  permitted to settle for a small fraction  of the flno which the law provided.  Wo have been good to the sugar  trust. It has had the use of the army  and navy and the courts win never it  needed them.  The trust has just issued a report  of its business for the past six months.  According to that report it is guthei-  ing in profltn at the rate of $20,000,-  000 a yoar: and will bo able to pay  M!l 1-!J per cont dividend on nil that  mass of fako securities.  A few months ago the people behind the trust, wishing to boost the  stock, issued a book telling something  about the cost of producing sugar.  According to this boo!; tho cont of  producing sugar Iwk* been reduced  ���������luring the last r*ix years. Prices have  been going up during all that time.  But hIx years ago It cost a little over  ly cents to produce a pound of sugar  and put It on a ship in Cuba. The exact figure wan given as $01ftt> to $0105  cents a pound.

The Market Report  Contributed b;y Rand-all, Gee & Mitchell, Ltd., Grain Merchants,  -��������� ";";���������!. Winnipeg-'..  A careful study of conditions would  lead one to believe that the present  high levels do not exaggerate the  facts governing, the crop situation.  Statistics ou the Canadian crop estimate thc production of wheat in this  country at one hundred and sixty-  seven million bushels, or practically  one-half cf last  year's  crop.  We must remember, however, that  this is very close to thc average production. Then we* have thc American  crop, which is estimated* at approxi-  mately six hundred million bushels,  r clul-j wj,icu" -IS t|lc. lowest average for a  coughs,   mlmi,cr   of  years.  Both crops are going to be made  up of a goodly ijuantity of very low  grade wheat. In fact, the early shipments from Manitoba points have  showed a very heavy run of Teed  wheat. This condition is also true in  the Minneapolis market. Reports  from that centre coincide with thc  statements of millers here on the  low average of Hour production of  these low  grades.  The result is that thc milling enterprises will have to buy up the  good wheat, that will mix with these  low grades and standardize thc flour.  This"accounts for the present widespread buying by the millers, which  ���������would naturally make the cash situation very strong. This is evidenced  hy the premiums that are being paid  for the top grades of Nos. 1, 2 and 3.  Market conditions for the past  week in Winnipeg have been of a  very narrow trading proposition.  Speculation is limited, and with this  feature out of the market it has forced those who want the actual wheat  to advance prices each and every  time they try to increase their holdings. Their offerings due to the narrow market appear as a burden, the  net result has been a very nervous  market with wild fluctuations.  The war situation continues to bc  a big factor, and there does not appear to be any doubt but what successes of the Allies in the Balkans  will have a depresing' effect. However, it remains io be seer, (should  the Allies meet with these successes  we wish for) whether Russia's crop  will be dumped on to thc market as  rapidly as anticipated.^  The general opinion among the  trade is that while -we might seeai  great deal higher price for wheat, still  those that own it should take advantage of present levels to market their  holdings.

He told his experiences to the  Times.  After the outbreak of war, Sir  Timothy Eden had for a time to report periodically to the police, but  later he was arrested and sent for internment at Rastadt. He was there  for six days, and then he was sent by  rail to Berlin, where, with his companions, he was placed in Ploltagen-  see convict prison. Their quarters  were those in normal times of the  worst type of criminal. Each man  was placed in a strong wire cage, six  feet long, three feet nine inches wide,  and about six feet high, and they  were thus shut off from one another.  The corridor between the cages was  called "Bird Cage Walk." The warders treated tbe prisoners as eonvicts,  and "tliey were only allowed to exercise in the prison yard in single file.  Their food was the ordinary prison  diet, most of it being distinctly unpalatable or not fit for human consumption. After ten days they were  transferred to the cells for a short  period, where they had more comforts.  "The conditions," Sir Timothy  Eden said, "were absolutely horrible,  and though we had not much to look  forward to, we were rather glad  when the order came for us to be  sent to Ruhlcben. The fact that we  English, of whom thc Germans were  speaking in thc most complimentary  terms before the war, had decided  to enter the struggle, completely  turned the scales against us, and we  had to suffer more than the others."  Sir Timothy's first experiences at  Ruhleben were not calculated to give  liim much encouragement, however.  The. site of Ruhleben internment  campjvas formerly a racecourse, and  the stables of the racing horses were  the. inhabitations of the prisoners.  '���������Whatever we wanted had^to be  provided by ourselves, and we were  given nothing extra unless it was  paid for. In addition to the stables,  there were a number of wooden  shanties, which were dignified by the  name of 'barracks.' Little light was  provided, except what the inmates  themselves could improvise, and the  conditions were altogether most intolerable."  On his arrival at Ruhleben on Nov.  28, Sir Timothy was sent into a stable lift with five others. The place  was six or eight yards in length, and  six feet wide, and for a considerable  time they were obliged to sleep on  straw beds. Three months later the3r  were giverr better quarters, but stiil  their straw beds went with them. In  that way they existed until the day  of Sir Timothy's leaving the camp in  exchange for a German.

Since the first of April 31  carloads of creamery butter have  been sent out of thc province. These  have averaged '100 boxes, or a little  more per car, each box containing 56  pounds.

Therefore any knowledge that results from experience is  of the gratest value. A deal of information acquired from such experience is given in Bulletin 27, 2nd series, entitled "Soil fcrtilitjr, its economic maintenance and increase,"  just issued by the Department of Agriculture, of which Dr. Frank T.
