 ^Z'&.t  Vol. VIII.  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1916  ���������j  No. 44  Concert Nets $84  For Belgian Help  The Belgian Children's Belief fund  will be enlarged to the extent of $84  as the result of the efforts of the  Creston school children, who with the  assistance of Miss Hardman, vice-  principal MacKenzie, and some of the  ladies of the Valley, staged a successful children's concert in Mercantile  Hall on Wednesday night  There were seven numbeas on the  programme, and with the exception  of two all these required troupes of  the scholars, from sixteen for the Rose  Drill to 40 for the school choir, and  the operetta. The two latter were  made up of all sizes and ages and  when this fact is taken into consideration along with ' the rather limited  time available to train the youngsters,  the entertainment can hardly fail to  Ire classed as a splendid all-round  -success.   ���������������  .Mr. MacKenzie's chorus of forty  voices sung themselves intofayor with  the audience in O Canada and Till the  Boys Come Home, the latter number  being the best of the two if there was  anything to   choose   between   them.  ''Christmas Secrets." Rev. R. E.  Pow made a very efficient chairman.  Principal Johnson of Wynndel and  Principal King of the Alice Siding  schools were in attendance and most  of the scholars from these schools  also turned out to help along the  cause.    Erickson was also out in force.  On their first appearance the cnoir-  isters failed to produce the volume  their numbers should have been good  for, but their second appearance was  tackled with much more enthusiasm  and with decidedly better effect.  With Misses Mab< I Huscroft arid  Margaret Webster to iead, and Misses (  Hazel Hobden, Rose Cherrington,  Eunice Moore, Jennie Nicholls, Muriel  Hobden, Erma Hayden, Estelle McKelvey, Audrey Craigie, Mat ion  Swanson, Agnes Hobden, Mary Parker, Vivianne Moore, Almeda Attridge  and Vera Parker -bo _ complete the  troupe, Miss Hardman staged a Rose  Drill thut most people present agreed  was the most graceful and spectacular  offering of the sort that had been put  on in Creston. They executed a  variety of movements single file, two  abreast, four ob, criss cross, capital S,  extended capital X formation, in-and-  out to suhottische step, etc., etc., etc..  to say nothing of some rose-decorated-  hoop caiesthenics, that went all down  the line without a hitch���������and was  equally pretty from the costume  standpoint as it was from the poetry  of motion aspect. Miss Hardman was  also responsible for a play, "Christmas Secrets," by 30 junior boys and  girls that caught on well with the big  crowd in attendance.  Other popular numbers were the  violin solo by Miss Ruth Klingensmith, and a piano duett by Miss  Lillian Cherrington and Miss Marion  Swanson, all students at the high  .school, Mrs, Downs accompanying  the former on the piano.  Tho closing number was another  ambitious undertaking on the part of  Mesdames Jackson, Hayes and Stark  in an operettr "Rose Dream," with a  company of thirty as elves, fairies,  roses, etc. There was a. lot of pretty  music to the piece and considering  f-.ho tender yearn of all   the performers  -with many of whom it was a llrst  appearance, those responsible for tho  training havo every reason to be  prowl of the performance, which  went through with very fow slips,  and tho soloists all showing to good  advantage.

Dougherty,  news of which reached here on Friday  last. For the past two terras he had  been in charge of Alice Siding school,  going to Abbotsford at the opening of  this term to take the principalship of  the four-room school in that town.  While not of a robust constitution he  always appealed to enjoy average  health while here and in consequence  news of his demise comes as a great  surprise. He was a young man of  about twenty-six years, and a native  of Prince Edward Island. Death was  quite sudden, and was due to hem-  morage of the lungs for which he was  being treated at Vancouver hospital,  being ill but five days. Much sympathy  is felt for his two sisters, who have  many friends here, as well as the  parents; in the loss of one who enjoyed  a wide popularity in Creston. The  remains were taken east for burial.  aione's Wound  Was in Shoulder  Henry Hamilton has several loads  of lumber piled up at his ranch with  which to make some improvements  to his residence and also erect a commodious packing shed.  Mr. Attwood of Moyie is making  some extensive improvements on his  i-ari������*h^hi5fali. the most notable being  the building of a solid concrete basement under the house. R. Stewart  had the cement work contract and  completed the job last week.  .From present appearances apple  and pear trees are in fine shape for  the winter and fairly well set to fruit  buds for the 1917 crop.  Most of the potato growers of the  district are reluctant to part with any  more of their tubers this fall although  $26 a ton has been offered. A still  better- price is expected before spring.  Geo. Hobden has disposed of his  stock of young pigs this week, the  animals bring $4 a head.  M.   R.   Palmer has  been  busy for  several    days   building    a   verandah  around  tht  Huscroft sectioir school  house.  A small crew of men is at work  stripping the wrecked span of the  Goat River bridge of its worth-while  hardware which can be utilized when  the structure is rebuilt.  Latest word of Pte. Billy Hall, who  was wounded in the knee in the  fighting almost two months ago, is  that he in being treated in an English  hospital and although navigating on  crutches is coming along as well us  could be expected.  Somo sorjb of a heater in tho waiting  room at the depot would be much  appreciated by thoso of the public  who llnd it most convenient to take  tho train horo���������-especially theso days  when the train is running late.  D. S. Tlinmons is loading what will  likely be hi.s final car for the tieason  out of Erickson. Messrs. Learmonth,  Duperry and Hobdon aro supplying  most of tho apples In this car.  Erickson was well represented at  the Belgian roliof concert at Creston  on Wednesday night. Wo aro sorry  to hear that Master Hugh, son of John  Graham, sustained a broken bone in  his left foot, when tho plunk on which  he aome moro of tho crowd woro  sitting collapsod oarly in the evening.  Fortunately Dr. Hendorson was pre-  fient and promptly attended tho  injury which, while quite painful, did  not deter Hugh from staying to see  tho concert t'lYiiuirh, ivi+fo ru'vet' ft  poop out of him.  V. J. Klingoniimith, who ban been  working at Biairmore, Alto., for some  months past, returned homo on Snn-  u.fcy, ������vmi wiii ujm'hu i.tto winter here,  Pte. Teddy Maione, who figured on  the casualty list about three weeks  ago, has just been heard from. In a  letter to R. Walmsley, dated October  29th, and written in the Northumberland War Hospital, Gosfprth, New-  cssfcle-on-Tyne, he relates that he is  laid up with a shrapnel wound in the  right shoulder, which he sustained in  the heavy fighting on the ��������� Somme.  The wound does not appear to have  been serious, as iri closing Teddy says  not to write to him at the hospital as  he expected to be back in France possibly by the time his letter got to  Creston.  Maione couth-ins the death of Fte.  Arthur Biddulph and states that he  hud the unpleasant task of helping to  carry him out to the burying ground,  being wounded a few days after Biddulph was killed. During his travels  Teddy has run across all the Ci-eston  soldiers over there except Fred Hurry  Jim Long and Bill Dow. but is counting on meeting th>" in at TTpi-es, at  which point their battalion is now  located, and MaIone~ does not look for  very much heavy fighting between  now and spring.  So far this week there are no names  of Creston men showing on the  casualty lists. Irwin Simmons who  was wounded and buried in a shrapnel  explosion some weeks ago. went back  to duty about the nsiddle of October.  Pte.

Ferry Troubles  Unless a new cable arrives speedily  for the Kootenay River ferry .residents  across the river are liable to be denied  communication with Creston. F. K.  Hurry, who is in charge of the transport, was in town Wednesday and  reports being caught ontin midstream  that day when the wire parted but  fortunately was able to grab a broken  end before it sank and was thus able  to pull the scow ashore. There ai*e  now exactly eight splices in the cable  and as it has seen considerable service  it cannot possihly be strong enough to  stand much heavy traffic.  Wynndel  Oreston callers this week include  Carl Wigen, John Bathie on Monday,  and Bob Dixon on Tuesday- Principal  Johnson of the public school was up  on Wednesday for the Belgian concert.  Miss Bertha Pease of Alice Siding  was a week-end visitor .here, selling  tickets for tho Belgian concert at  Creston. She made a good job of it  judging by the turnout from here.  A number of the young people had  their first skating of the season on the  lake on Sunday.  Peter Andostud had to visit Dr.  Henderson at Creston on Monday to  havo a piece of steel removed from his  oyo which ho got In while threading  a pipe  Carl Carlson left on Monday's train  for Nelson, where lie expect?? to upend  tho winter.

There are few places that can eyen  equal Deer Lodge when it comes to  having a good time and raising funds  for a good cause. Even the school  scholars are making an enyiahle  reputation in the latter line. For  October the 11 enrolled gave $1.47 to  tbe Prisoners of- War Fund���������a showing that will equal any school in the  province.  J. Heath spent the greater part of  last week here taking the.:.census on  fruit production and cuitiire. Hewas  of the ,'opi n ion that this part vi*}la all a  clay belt, but on seeing the soil on  some of the new-ploughed .land his  opinion changed rapidly. He was  much taken with the splendid shape  in which he found many of the  orchards and passed along much  appreciated advice on how to handle  tbe trees to get best results.

Searle expects to go back to the  mines for tho winter. In the meantime he and Matt. Clayton are slashing and piling just about as fast as  most men go at that kind of work.  Those who grew thoir own supply  of chicken feed are haying a bit of a  laugh on the fellow who didn't���������with  that class of feed at $2 a bushol.  G.

C. Brewster fco form a new  government. All of which meansfchafc  Monday morning's mail should bring  along word as to whom will comprise  B.C.'s government for the next five  years.  Saturday's Vancouver World stakes  ���������its reputation as a political prophet  on a crbinet slate that shows the  member for this constituency, John  Keen, as speaker of the house, with  the portfolio of mines bestowed upon  J. E. Thompson, M.P.P. for Grand  Forks. The World's lineup does not  include the name of M. A. Macdonald,  that paper stating emphatically that,  fchat gentleman wiii not be be in the  cabinet afc all,. Mr. Fan-is of Vancouver  taking fche attorney generalship, wifcb  Dr. King of Cranbrook minister of  education.  As Mr. Brewster has given his word  that not even a whisper as to who will  make up the cabinet will escape him  until such time as he is called Lo become premier, the World's cabinet,.  surmise may prove considerable of a  bad guess.

The greatest political sensation in  .���������day's, riowever, "���������A*^s;;''������niibu*h'e,edt in  Tuesday'8 papers when word was  given oufcfcha't.Sir Sam Hughes, minister of militia,", had been asked for his  resignation and had given it to Premier-  Borden. In brief Sir Sam was'let out  bsoause he has been getting fche  government into more or less trouble  ever since the war started by doing  things that should not have bepn undertaken without the consent of tht-  government, as a whole, besides which  he had an awful bad habit of talking  altogether too much and unwisely on  most any and every occasion. It is  thought that Premier Borden will administer the militia department  temporarily at least.  Sieok Shipment**  Two more cars of beef cattle went  out to Nelson on Friday last, the P.  Burns Oo. being shippea.s. There wore  about' 40 head in the lot, most of them  from Campbell Blair and Stark At  Williams. This gives Creston a 101(1  cattle export of 185 head as compared  with 143 in 1015. The total for the  year should exceed last season as  Manager Johnson expects to load at  least one more car.

Fresh Air a Necessity  Ventilation   of   Homes   Essential   to*  Health  oi. Occuoants  Many Canadians have returned  from summer outings, of which the  principal attraction and benefit were  thc enjoyment of the open air. Living in thc open has health values superior to any artificial cures, and,  during the warmer months, is fully  enjoyed by thc Canadians. Today  fresh air is a recognized remedy for  tuberculosis and pneumonia and a  preventive of disease generally.  It is regrettable that the interiors  of the majority of homes in Canada  are breeding places for disease, because of the difficulties in admitting  fresh air. Foul air, containing exhalations from thc lungs of thc inmates,  constitutes the atmosphere in many  homes, and it cannot bc otherwise  when houses are built to exclude the  external  air.  i     lt is a common mistake to confuse  heat  and  bad  air  or  cold  and.-Rcod  r.      hc atmosphere    may be below  Transient   employment   was I .freezhig vn(-} stiU bc bad, or it-may  ;,iori f^v ?���������;*, ,v,���������P,���������,nn��������� +i,��������� |bc excessively warm and still be pure.

At  what arc these men to secure a livelihood during the balance of the  year?

If  with the ordinary preparation given  to thc land on an average farm  several more bushels ot wheat, or ���������  other grains, can be grown per acie,  thc cost of production ot that grain  will naturally be reduced and, other  conditions being equal, the farmer  will make a higher net proht per acre.  It is certain that an increase in yield  can   be  obtained   on   every   farm     if  meet. One of the largest clothing  manufacturers of the United States  recently stated that the keeping together of their staff of skilled workers had been one of their hardest  problems. They had solved it, however, by utilizing their employees and  plant in the manufacture of other  lines for which it was adaptable during the off seasons in the clothing  trade.  So with thc farmer.

A simple means of keeping the air  of a room fresh is by a cross draft,  secured through open windows on  either side of a house. Where there  arc windows on the side of a room  only, the upper sash should bc lowered and the lower one raised. This  allows the warm, foul air to escape  through the opening above the upper  sh " " "    "  low the lower.  To utilize an opening above the  upper sash of a window fully for ventilation and at thc same time to  lower the window shade, the latter  may be attached to the roller by four  or five pieces of tape, about five inches long. This leaves a space between the roller and shade through  which thc impure ��������� air may escape.  The shade should also be shortened  so that when drawn down to expose  the opening at the top it leaves an  opening also at the bottom. This  will* permit constant changing of the  air of a room.

Learned a Trick That Worked Both  Ways  There was an old lady who rented  a furnished villa for the summer,  and with thc villa also went a large  dog. In the sitting-room of the villa  there was a very comfortable arm  chair. The old lady liked the chair  better than any other in thc house.  -But alas! she nearly always found  the chair occupied by the large dog.  Being afraid of the dog, she never  dared bid it harshly to get out of the  chair, as she feared that it might bite  her; but instead she would go to the  window  and   call   "Cats!"  Then the dog would rush to the  window and bark, and the old lady  would slip into thc vacant chair  quietly.  One day the dog entered the room  and found the old lady in possession  of the chair. He strolled over to the  window and, looking out, appeared  very much excited and set up a tremendous barking.  The old lady rose and hastened to  the window to see what was the  matter.

Ontario  JP&m\  "Safety First" With Firearms  Each year the shooting season records a long list of accidents due to  carelessness of hunters in the forest  and in the use of firearms.  A gun going off accidentally and  killing thc owner, climbing fences  with the gun loaded and cocked, or  shooting at a companion in mistake  for an animal arc stereotyped causes.  With the knowledge of the danger of  handling firearms, it is surely incumbent upon hunters to exercise c\rcry  precaution and keep continually before them the motto "safety first."

Calls for Vengeance  Maori Member of New Zealand Parliament Makes Striking Speech  A striking speech was made at the  closing session of thc House of Representatives of the Dominion Parliament at Wellington, N.Z., by Dr.  Pomarc, a member of the Cabinet  and a Maori. A resolution was before the House expressing the Parliament's inflexible determination to  "continue thc war to a successful  end," when Dr. Pomarc arose and  said:  "Today Aegean breezes stir the  grasses over the graves of mine and  yours, and wherever a Maori hears  the moan of the wind, whenever he  hears the boom of guns it reminds  him that away beyond the seas utu  (revenge) has got to bc brought  about for thc dead. For that reason  the Maori's determination to end the  war victoriously is just as inflexible  as that of the pakcha (white man).  One result of the war will bc the cohesion of the Empire and the understanding between the different races  under the British flag. Thc spirit of  Rcwi and of other big lighters lives  in thc Maori today, and lie cries mi  thc same spirit o( defiance, 'Ake, akc,  alec!' (for ever and for ever)."

As a result, unless  those in arrears with school taxes pay  up forthwith there is every possibility  that the schools will have to be closed.  country ?" I believe there is a logical  answer to this question. We must  realize that the price of land has  doubled iu recent years, and wages  are higher, so we have to keep cattle  to utilize our fodder crops and at the  same time maintain the fertility of the  soil.  We want a cow to reproduce herself  each year, and to produce milk and  butter for market, then finally sell her  to the butcher at a good price. The  special dairy cow has been developed  under more artificial conditions both  as to feed and care, and calls for  more knowledge than the average  farmer will give her. I believe that  the strictly dairy cow is pre-eminently  adapted for dairy purposes, and to  such purposes alone, but the average  farmer wants an animal that gives.a  satisfactory amount of milk and butter, produces a- good steer, and after-  serving her usefulness in that direction can be turned into a very acceptable quality of beef. In theopinion of  the writer, the greatest success will  come fco fche breeder who treats his  dual purpose cattle primarily as dairy  cattle, but who breeds foi* size and  flesh making.

Here's thc article:  Tl.e great scarcity of beef cattle  and fche high prices paid for them has  turned tho attention during recent  years of many cattle bteeders to the  evolution of a breed that would bo a  first-class beof animal and at fcho same  timo a profitable dairy cow, says R.  R. ItoiT, Dairy SuporviNoi', Central  Research Farm, Australia.  Whilo this Ho-callnd dual purpose  cow may bo something of a myfch, it  cannot be denied that individual  strains in various breeds do possefiu  these characteristics, and concerted  action by tho brccdorn, with aotnc rc-  ������'.������v* to iU-\vL-[.'n>u, itmt,i ullhuniely  bring success. Some breeds como  m uuli nearer the ideal than others. No  oimi would call the Jesvaey a beef animal, nor the Aberdoen AngiiA a profitable dairy breed.  All breeds of cattle have thoir placo  in farm hutibatidiy; special dairy  breeds are wanted on the ttmallcot  farms, but by tne rttviry farmer who  luw a hirgo farm, name attention  -ilitmid ho given U> lho IwHtf-pi-oduoing  Interest an well aa to fcho milking  qualities. The prlcos of vomit* Htoers  will fcond to force attention on this  minjcct.

Red Polls are greatly in demand in  the Northern States, the bulls being  used for crossing purposes with the  Shorthorns and other cattle. A draft  of ten rising two-year-old bulls from  the herd of Major Philip Charley, of  Belmont Park, Richmond. N.S.W.,  was sold by auction at. the Brisbane  Royal Show, and averaged 51 guineas  per head.  Their rich red color blends w 11  with the other breeds, and the absence of horns from the resultant progeny reduces fche cost of handling  them, as hornless cattle are more decile, and consequently  fatten quicker.  A visit to the herd at the Research  Farm will convince one as to their  docility, as nearly all the cows can  be easily - handled. Hornless cattle  only need half the space required by  horned cattle, and udder injuries are  very rare, one outstanding feature  in the Werribee herd is that every  cow is sound in her udder and free fco  milk. The young bulls are in demand  by fche dairymen of the State, at  prices based approximately on the  butter-fat record of the dam, at 24  cents per lb. of butter fat yielded.  As to tholr lactation period, ono  month was the average spell for each  cow.

As proving    the  value of Dr. Williams  Pink  Pills  in  curing    indigestion,    Miss Edith    M.  Smith, R. R. No. 4, Perth, Ont., says:  "I  can honestly say I owe my present good health to Dr. Williams Pink  Pills.    My stomach was tcrribiy weak  and  I   suffered from indigestion and  sick headache, and was always very  nervous.   I was troubled this wa}' for  nearly three years, and in that lime  took a great deal of doctors'  medicine,  which,    however,  did  not  help  mc.    I  could not cat anything without  experiencing  the  most  agonizing  pain.    My sick headaches were   most  violent and I could not rest night or  day.   I was asked one day by a friend  to  try Dr. Williams  Pink  Pills, and  consented to do so. After taking them  some time I found they were helping  me, and    I continued    to take them  steadily for several months, until    I  cured.  cd both  in strength and weight, and I feci it  impossible    to praise    Dr.    Williams  Pink Pills too highly."  You can procure these pills through  advantage in the market.  It was the great heat wave of July  and its heavy toll of thc spring wheat  crop that gave the real impetus to  thc bull market. Thc winter wheat  harvest was moderate, and on the top  of that came a most unfavorable  Northwest harvest. From that time  on, thc developments have been towards a reduction of the world's  wheat production. Thc yield in the  United States allows only a small reserve above the country's needs, and'<  a surplus available for thc export, 1  even with the carry ovcr of last season, is small when the conditions  governing thc international market  are taken into account. The latest  reports from Canada indicate a_ decided shrinkage from expectations,  and the news from thc other surplus  countries do not suggest at thisiwrit-  ing more than ordinary yields.  It is not expected that importing  countries will increase their production under the abnormal conditions  that prevail. In fact, the reports are  unfavorable. The requirements from  exporters will be large this season,  and exporting countries in the aggregate have far less to give than last  year. Whether prices have fully discounted this extraordinary situation  is a matter of debate between the  bulls and thc bears. The situation  has not been exaggerated.  . sicauiiy ior several monins, v  Wheery in Back, Headache\<$r* s^i ^--f^  and Pain in Limbs.

It will give way faster soon, for the  rate of speed of an advance like this  docs uot remain stationary; it bears  compound, not simple, interest. That  has already been proved by yards  which became miles. When a mile is  taken today three miles may bc taken  soon, five miles after that. There  is nothing mysterious in this.
