Although the attendance was below

the October meeting of Oresto

but' owing *o tbe meagre crowd out
deflniteaetion on all of them was deferred until the November eession.
After some routine business had
been disposed of, President Cook reviewed the wo?k1 of: the Issti&sto convention at Nelson -last ibonth. Two
features not dealt with in his report,
which appears elsewhere in this issue,
bad to do with an annual Institute
; sale;^at which; goods and chattels
members wished to get rid Of are put
up at auction. The other was the formation of the eastern Canada "beef
ring^for. the winter supply of fresh
meat for those connecting up with it.
The delegate's action in keeping out
of the comniitiee^to formulate plans
. fpr the -proposed\co-operative creamery at Nelson was approved. The
opinion wa^ freely expressed that the
Cranbrook creamery was- entiUe^-'-:^ik)''
all the support Valley dairymen can
give it. This year- patrons had been
given fair tests, prompt payment for
cream, and general satisfaction in
every other detail;     -.���.-���**'

The secretary was instrn-jted to
write several spray machine manufacturing concerns for prices on machines
���both hand and power���in quantities,
the idea being to have the Institute
do the purchasing and also handle the
r-epairs. This matter will be gone into
more definitely next meeting.
While in Nelson Mr. Cook reported
he had been asked by a representative
of the Nelson Jobbers wholesale house
for a quotation on 1600 cases of Ores-
ton canned tomatoes. The firm believed they coitld.be put up here right,
and they would like to have all the
canned tomatoes Creston could send
The enquiry did not awaken much
enthusiasm. Mr. Littlejohn believed a
canning plant for soft fruits could be
made go here, but forcanned tomatoes
tliere was too much labor and help
was too expensive. The cost of the
cans to put the product up in was also
excessive for a western plant to hope
to successfully cone wi*-.h their big
eastern competitors, though he believed the manufacture of ketchup
might bo undertaken here with good
reason to hope for success. This Is

undertakes to pa y half the expense of

Her Place in European History Has
Always Been an Honorable One
Though Rumania up to the nineteenth century does not appear to
have played a conspicuous part in
the advance of civilization, her place
in European history is an honorable
one, and, if less spectacular than
those of her neighbors, her achievements have proved of supreme value.
By their stubborn resistance to the
Ottoman invaders, Rumanians, in
common with the other peoples inhabiting Oriental Europe, made possible that stability and security that
enabled Western civilization to develop, and, although they came under
the sway of the Turks, yet the Rumanians, by their determined stand,
so weakened the power of thc Moslem invaders, that they were unable
to  carry on  the fight.
Rosovo is a name sacred to all the
Balkan nations that  resisted Turkish
rule.    It was in 1389 that Mircea the
Old,    Prince    of Wallachia,    led the
! united    Balkan    armies    against    the
<Turks.    The battle was lost; the vanquished    were placed    under tribute,
but their fight against their conquerors was    carried' on    for    centuries.
Like a great brcakwateV, these little
nations   held  the   Ottoman  waves  in
check,  and  left  western  Europe  free
to forge ahead untrammeled by    the
fear  of    Moslem    incursions.     Until
1877 the tribute imposed five centuries earlier, following the battle of Rosovo,  was  the basis  of the relations
between Rumania and Turkey.     Unlike Hungary, which for over a century   was   a   Turkish   province,      the
Rumanian  provinces  never  fell  completely under the  sway of the    conqueror.       Under     the  suzerainty  of
Turkey, however, Rumania became a
mere pawn in the politics of the great
European    powers.      She lost Buko-
wina to Austria in 1775, and Bessarabia to Russia in 1812.    The jealousies  of     the  European    powers  alone
saved  Rumania    from greater    territorial losses.
Under Prince Carol, who was related to the King of Prussia .and to
Napoleon III., Rumania maintained
a. bolder front against partition and
won her independence. Bulgaria
since then has done much to keep
alive Rumanian suspicions. At the
outset of thc first Balkan campaign,
1910-11, Bulgarian official documents
referred to thc.Dobrogea, which was
Rumanian territory, as a "Bulgaria
Irredenta." The double dealing of
the Central Powers in the last Balkan war detached Rumania. Dreading the increasing influence of Germany in Bulgaria, Rumania turned to
s Thc present war finds Rumania in
a position favorable to the accomplishment of her most cherished
dream���the inclusion under one flag
of all Rumanians. . Transylvania is
the cradle of thc ,1-lunianiaii nation. In
Bukowina and Bessarabia the peasants, not given to change, have preserved all the customs and characteristics of the Rumanian race, including
thc language. In Transylvania, despite Magyar oppression, the Rumanians form a strong middle class. Definitely detached from Germany, Rumania had not time, to recover from
her fears of Russian influence on thc
Bosphorus when thc European war
called for a decision as lo her attitude. Moreover, the supply of all
her war materials was in the hands
of Krupps when thc war broke out.
A weak Cabinet and an opportunist
Prcmb*!- declared for neutrality.
While thc Roumanians of Transylvania were forced lo tight in the

U.      1124  Rule for Measuring Hay Which Has  Been Proven  Satisfactory  Estimating thc number of tons of  hay in stack by measuring is often  resorted to when it is,inconvenient  or impractical to weigh it. It is  impossible to give a rule for measuring hay which is . entirely, satisfactory. Tlip following one has often  been used, states Professor E. G.  Scha'fcr, of the Washington Experiment Station at -Pullman, and approximates the correct weight:  "Width plus over, divided by four  and squared, then multiplied by thc  length and divided byJ512."  The above rules assumes that the  cross section of a stack may he obtained by dividing the width plus  over measurement by four and  squaring it. Stacks vary so much, in  shape that this cannot- he absolutely  true witii all stacks. Tho above ������*ulc  also assumes that there are 512 cubic  feet in a-ton. Thc length of time a  stack has been built, thc size of a  stack or the amount it has settled,  also the kind of hay, all influence the  weight of a ccrlain volume of hay.  The above or other rules should not  be relied upon unless it is impossible  to weigh hay when it is sold.  Problem���������Afisinne that a hay stack  measures 18 feet wide, 26 feet oyer  (distance from ground on one side  up over the staclc and to the ground  on other side) and 30 feet long.  The  solution would he-���������18 phi?) 26  equals 44; 44 divided by 4 equals 11;  11   squared equals  121;  121  times -30  equals. 3,680 cuhic feet in 3,630 divid-  jcd'by 312 equals 7.09 tons.

ORESTON,  B.C.,   FKIDAY, OCT. 27  Time Ghan&e  So far no move has been made  locally to accept or reject the  change in time which the CP.it.  proposes to bring into effect, so far  as its" employees and operations are  concerned, at midnight on Sunday.  At Cranbrook, as was to be expected, the new time will be adopted  on the town clock and by citizens  generally as per recommendation  to that effect by the mayor and  council.  At present it looks as if Creston  will pursue the even tenor of her  ways, so far as time is concerned,  for the winter at any rate.  it if hard to see how he can overlook John Keen.  It is also noteworthy that the  local member is a visitor to Victoria  at present. Men of the Keen type  do hot go gunning for cabinet preferment except upon invitation of  those in authority, and the knowing ones therefore take this trip to  the capital at this juncture by Mr.  Keen to have something to it in  the coming cabinet construction.  He is about the last of the members-elect to pay their respects to  the coming premier, and the impression gains strength every day  that it will be a case of "the last  shall be first" when the makeup of  the hew ministry is announced.  ^a������>  MO  un  44 Never  BY USING THE ALWAYS RELIABLE  *= m*  ffl&BgSS  rrnv  Holds S Imperial Gallons  Evidence   to    substantiate    the  wisdom of the suggestion we made  to the Red Cross workers' a couple  With ! ������^ we^ks ago���������to  the  effect that a  No valves,      No pump.

Or, at least, the Vancouver Province, the livest one of the lot, sizes  tilings up about right when it observes that Messrs. Smith and  Sloan, being coal mining authorities, and with coal mining pretty  well at its maximum capacity, that  branch of the industry is of small  importance as compared to the  ���������j;rcat poM9tbi!iti������-������B in metalliferous  mining.  "'Under tbe circumstances," continues the Province, "a good many  shrewd political observers at the  -.-upital expect to see the portfolio  uf mines go to John Keen of Kaslo,  or Mr. Thompson of Phoenix. Roth  of these men are said to understand  knowing that last year it sent T.55  pairs of handknit socks overseas  the showing is not so favorable  when we recollect that Mrs. H.  Hamilton alone knitted one-sixth  of the whole lot, aud that she.> and  two other^ ladies were responsible  for one-fourth of the total output.  Iu the matter 'f kneecaps Mrs.  Watson made 45 of the 64 supplied.  And of surgical and day shirts the  showing is just as lopsided when  one thinks of what might have  resulted had   the workers  heen or-  rrattm'raA  to*-' ���������������������������-*-��������� ...  Last week Canadian headquarters sent out an urgent appeal for  almost every line of supplies the  society requires and Creston*s output that we8k was 2 surgical shirts  and 1 set pyjamas���������surely altogether too meagre a response in view  of the Creston names that show  from week on the casualty lists.  The present system of sitting  around hoping against hope that  providence will send along ladies  to take work home with them and  thus make a really worth-while  showing has proved a bit of a failure. Anything new, with some  real sociability mixed in with it,  can hardly be worse than the  present state of affairs.

However,   now   it   in   dotiriitoiy  known   who  arc  elected   it is not  likely many days will elapse after  the provincial secretary receives the  oversers election budget, till Mr.  Bowser and his associates bid good  bye to their portfolios and public  greatness���������seeing the premier is  the only one of seven or eight to do  a come-back.  It is important, too, that the new  rulers should be installed as quickly  as possible. There are several important appointments of one sort  and another to make in oonneotion  with the legislation recently passed  as well as vacancies that havo occurred, including another Small  Debts' Court judge afc Creston.  Tho prospective ministers will be  new to their work and will require  some time to acquaint themselves  with all tho features of it, to say  nothing of having to go baek to  their constituents for re-eleotion.  In addition to all thoso the house  will bc going into sossion in about  three months and much time will  he required by tho cabinet to deoido  just what legislation will bo submitted for consideration at tho 11)17  sossion, and still more of it required  for its preparation.  If even the minor fraction of tho  adverse criticism Mr. Brewster levelled at the present government is  correct prompt action on tho part  of tho new cabinet in desirable. The  public wiii Im> looking for some  corrective legislation at this session  and the few weeks between now  and the time the house meets will  be none too many to ensure mature  deliberation beforehand of even a  limited sessional agenda.  Patronage  And this talk of getting tho  Brewster government into office  naturally brings to the fore that  gentleman's pre-election pledge  that if returned he would abolish  patronage, or something to "that  effect.  In giving that pledge Mr. Brewster made no effort to explain just  what ho considered "patronage,"  whioh may, or may not, have been  good politics���������tho opposition would  have accused him of reneging no  matter how definitely ho might  have explained the proposition.  Partisans of both politioal stripes  will interpret thc phrase to suit  party ends no doubt, but we fanoy  with most pooplo so long art Mr.  Browstor takes good oaro that tho  various positions his government  will bo called upon to fill from timo  to timo aro given to persons competent to fill them tho charge of violating his "no patronage" pledge  will fail to fitiolc.  The people as a wholo are not  i ntorested in an officeholder's hefore-  tippointmont political loaning^.  Their chief concern  io   as  to his  ability to do the work devolving  upon him without fear or favor.  If there are enough Liberals available to competently administer any  and all positions that may be open  there will be no complaint if they  are given first consideration.  If, however, incornpatcnt supporters of the government are taken  into the civil servioe, or positions  oreated for the express purpose of  taking oaro of some party friend,  theBO are abuses of patronagowhicb  operate to the injury of public interests, nnd by no hocus pecus can  Mr. Brewster tolerate such practice  and still hope to have the people  boliovd that he has made good on  no-patronage promise.  What B.C wants is a competent  lot of officials at the minimum expense. Ability and willingness to  do tho work required up to standard should be the chief and only  requirements of all officials. Strict  adherence to fchene features will get  tho government into no trouble  even though they adopt tho frater-  ijifil idea of "All thitigt! bamfe' cqvml  givo tho brother tho proforcnoo."

These -district  conventions will meet some time, prior  to the annual convention held at  Victoria.  At the district convention resolutions will' be passed affecting their  particular sections ���������' and thon passed^  on to the central convention for en-  dorsation. thus eliminating a lot of  repetitions of resolutions as in the  past.  Mr. Scott also outlined the department's intentions regarding delegates  attending both district and central  conventions. For district conventions  each Institute will pay its own delegates expenses and for the central  conventionheid'at*^ ictoria the department will pay the delegates, railway fare only.

Among the motions and discussions  that took place perhaps the most important to those west of Kootenay  Lake was on the co-operative creamery. The delegates were all strong for  this, and a committee of all the delegates was formed to take, the matter  up witk their respective Institutes  with a view of starting one in Nelson.  A resolution which caused quite a  discussion was one to start Institute  displays at the Nelson fair, in place  of the district displays as in the past,  which have waned- Mr, MeHardy; ft  director of the Nelson fair board, was  present and stated that he thought  the fair officials would make grants to  Institutes showing, as they had done  for district displays. A committee of  those present was formed to take the  matter up with their owu Institute/  A lively discussion took place on the  question of short coai-ses, especially  those bearing on dairying and live  stock, which some of the delegates  thought had not been given due  attention. After considerable talk on  the matter Mv. Scott suggested thai  if each delegate present would urge  his Institute.to ask for short courses  on these lines he would endeavor to  get competent men with some equipment to give these lectures and  demonstrations. He .also suggested  that perhaps the Departihent! eould be  induced to make up medicine chests  and instruments, with instructions  for usr'g them for fir^t aid to the  dairyman and stock raiser. These  first aid outfits to be under the direction of the Institute and to be centrally  located for the benefit of its members.  Tbe price of these chests he thought  would run between $25 and $50  according to contents.  A resolution was offered looking towards the extermination of gophers,  but on discussion  it was shelved as it  had been dealt with at Victoria convention.    Mr. Scott promised that the  Department  would  send   out  again 1  this year gopher poison in    he tablet!  form as they did last year.   Experiments this year had shown that poison  grain had not been as.succcHsfnl an the  tablets.
