A. MacDonald,  with W. P. Ogilvie, secretary.  The commission has boon travelling  ovor the province with regard to fixing  thc boundaries of electoral districts  and after the meeting at Pernio on the  5th thoir work in southern British Columbia was completed.  Mr. Macdonald opened the mooting by explaining the objects bf the  commlslon, which are four in number.  Mr. Macdonald stated that it had  boon proposed to divldo Cranbrook  district at tho Kootonay and Bull  Rivers on tho oast, giving that portion  to the Fornio district, and taking from  tho Ymir cHhIi-U-I, on tho west to tho  Kootonay lako and adding to the Cranbrook district.  A, J. Balmont, president of thc Conservative Assoction, stated that tho  ^Conservatives wero woll satisfied with  tho present boundaries of tho district,  and W. A. Nlsbot Htatod on behalf of  tho Cranbrook Liberal Association  that there woro uo complaints to mako  on tlio pri.t-cnt dintrict and tho Lilw'.r-  als woro willing to havo tho district  remain as at prosont.  T. D. Cavon, M.P.P., statod that ho  was poradnally opposed to this movo  on tho ground that tho natural lino is  whoro located at present and that thu  transfer of the torrltory oast of tho  Kootonay at present in tnu Cranbrook  district would bo opposed by tho residents nf that district,  E. L. StivploH proposed a new division  on  natural  lines  surrounding OVan-  l������l*t)Oi_,    (Ulilllg (MnlrUMI".    Ol    INM-ll  are to hand of either naval or military engagements of any  magnitude. The French and German troops have had some  skirmishes in Alsace and the British cruisers have been busy  keeping ehe high seas safe for British shipping and here and  there capturing a prize of war.  Decisive clashes both on land and sea are expected at an}  minute, if indeed the dogs  of war are not already at each  other's throats. ' The naval encounter, of course, in which the  British and Germans will be matched, is anxiously awaited.  The most notable engagement to date is at Liege, in  Belgium, where from early in the morning of August 4 until  well into the night of August 6, 25,000 Belgian troops held at  bay a force of crach German inlantry and cavalry 40,000  strong.    Some estimates of the German loss run as high as  25,000.    This is most likely abnormal, but that many thousand were slain is evidenced by the fact that the Germans  asked for a 24-hour armistice, which was granted, in order to  bury their dead.    Reports state the invaders ran short of  ammunition and that some of the men had been fighting for  two days without food.  August 4, A.D. 1914, has now every appearance of becoming one of those memorable dates that all students of the  world's history from this time forward will recall with facility  when discussing outstanding features of European develop-  Ij-tfauu SSitx p>rGgX6SS.  Great Britain declared war on Germany that night- The  momentous decision of the .British government, for which the  whole world had been waiting, came before the expiration ot  the tiine limit set. by Great Britain in her ultimatum to Ger-  ma_rro "demanding a satisfactory reolv on the subiect of  Belgian neutrality.  -    - >^ J&ght  piler midnight 'King.George sent a; personal i^ssage\io"fche  entire fleet sailing against th$ German, armada to' clear for  action. - The order "capture or destroy the enemyf wa-s  flashed to the aclmiral commanding. It was followed % th**  king's own message:���������..,....-,.  *'Tha,ve conMence tto^  old glories of the navy.      I am sure that the navy will again  shield   Britain   in this hour o| trial.    It  will prove, the  bulwark of the Empire."  ������ All EuropeJs now in arms. On the one hand Austria-  Hungary and Gei_nany are opposed by Russia, France, Great-  Britain, Servia and Montenegro. Italy has declared her  neutrality but is preparing for emergencies.  Canada is equipping an army of 60,000 men. She has  the stores, the uniforms, the arms and the ammunition and  arty reports to the contrary are declared to be without foun  dation. If Great Britain's participation in the light in the  early stages is only naval Canada can take little active part  as she has no dreadnoughts or battleships. There is, of  course, the two Canadian cruisers Rainbow and Niobe, and  two. submaries which Premier McBride, acting for the Dominion authorities, has recently purchased in Seattle from the  Chilean government, but these will hardly be requisitioned  for service abroad. But once war involving British military  aggression commences the Canadian contingents will be dies-  patched to the fronts���������immediately the word is given ahd Unnecessary convoy is furnished.  The real horror of war, next to starvation, is cholera, and  it is said the scourge has brokeu out in the opposing-Austrian  and Servian armies. If this is the case it will decimate the  hostile forces much more rapidly than will all the machine  guns and other machinery of war.  and Columbia districts and leaving a  narrow tract down tho Kootonay valley to Windermere,  W.

Cramp is liable to seize  anybody at nny moment, and when it  conies in deep water few swimmers  have sutTitieii. ^presence of. mind to  turn on their backs and wait quietly  until the attack has departed. So they  go under. But there is anoth-.. danger  quite as Imminent as cramp, though it  is probably less known. This is water  inhaling. A swimmer or even a wader  is^ always liable to inhale spray  through his nostril^, which, passing  through the pharyn : and behind the  epiglottis or windpipe guard, gets into the windp-ire and causes death. As.  one would e.-peet. water inhaling is  almost wholly confined to the sea and  very rarely occurs in fresh water. Ail  the same, it may happen anywhere.

The increase in the number  of shareholders of the railways in the  United State*, since 1904 has been 115  per cent. This shows the widespread  degree of interest that is taken by tho  people themselves in the railways of;  the country. It is also au argument  for government generosity in dealing  with the r&.iwsys in which ������0 many  of the people have invested their savings. The Canadian Pacific has something like 65.000 shareholders scatter  ed over the world. The management,  has never c_red to give the number  in each country; but it is known that  in Germany. Belgium and France the  majority of the shareholders reside.

The cocaine users show  drawn features, prominent cheek'  bones and usually have distinct rings  around the eyes.

Only in the case of? France was there  any definite indication of how the  money is to he raised, aside from  drawing on government funds already  in hand. ti  These steps brought to a head,the  discussion that has been in progress  in banking circles here for? several  days as to how a war on such a seals  as the present one is to be financed.  The opinion ;has been frequently expressed* ia the last few days that the  WEEEY MARKET REPORT  was,"of course, neutral officially, but  a war appropriation    of |ner inveterate hostility to the Balkan  in German^ a bill was  states,  especially Servia,   .was    well  j known and hardly concealed. Since  the war Austria has strengthened her  forces, both military and naval, and  presented to Europe a more vigilant  outlook and a more aggressive ? attitude than she has ever done in modern  times; all the while. preserving strict  secrecy concerning her actual designs.  On the 28th of June of the present  year, the Archduke-Francis Ferdinand,  heir presumptive to the dual throne  of Austria-Hungary, was assassinated  in the streets of Sarajevo, the capital  of Bosnia.  This event producad profound feeling in Austria against Servia.  On the 23rd of July Austria demanded that Servia should give formal assurance that it condemned the Servian  propaganda whose aimr was to detach  from Austria a porition of its territory,  stop the work of those engaged therein, and expr..-FS regret that Servian officers had shared ia the condemned  business.. The Servian government  was also called upon to suppress anti-  Austrian societies and publications  and to advertise the fact, and to eliminate from its educational system influences hostile to Austria-Hungary.  Aii this programme was to be carried  out immediately and under the supervision of Austrc-Hungarian officials.  Servia at once replied, accepting practically all the Austrian demands, but  demurring at the participation of Austrian officials in Servian affairs.  On   the   28th   of   July  Austria   declared war against Servia.  war would have to be a short one, as  it could not be financed if it continued for any .ength of time. Now there  is a tendency to take a different view  of the situation. One financial expert  who is well qualified to speak on the  subject, said."the European: nations  would be able to carry on the war for  several years so far a:.-, financing was  concerned.  "In the first place," he said, "it is  well known that for a year or so several of the nations involved have been  buildiug up the..- gold reserves, soms  of them to an unprecsdented extent  This was done by Germany some time  ago. Russia took similar action about  the same time. More recently France  has been���������acquiring gold, especially  from the United States and it has  hesitated at no extra cost in doing so.  over exports at Paris being made not  on the basis of actual exchange conditions but as special transactions.  Austria, too, has taken the same  course to some extent. These augmented gold reserves furnish the  basis-for an increase of currency :_or  several times the amount of the gold.  Another great resource that has al-,  ready been availed * of is that of taxation. .Throughout salmost the entire  career of Napoleon he financed his  wars by this means, not resorting to  large bond is.-ues and still less to the  issue of irredeemable currency, the  fallacy of which, has been learned  from earlier experiences. In his latter  days-short term notes were issued in  exchange for materials and subsistence, but taxation was his chief means  of support. This is sometimes too little regarded Jr. discussing the financing of the present war, which usually  centre abcut possible gigantic bond la-  sues   -;'-.  "Germany recently imposed a special tax for one year on property at  the rate of flvs per cent., which takes  the entire income from the property  for one year. This wan doubtless dona  in view of impending warfare. France  has just enacted an income tax for  the first time. Although it is only five  per cent., which is a very different  thing from a-five per cent, property  tax, the rate may easily be raised now  that the machinery for the collection  of the tax hap, been set up.  Germany has long had an income  tax, which is at a low rate on small  incomes, but is heavily graduated on  larger ones. It reaches incomes of  quite small size. This also may easily be increased. In England, of course,  the same condition exists.  A tax on industry has often been  resorted to in Europe in times of  stress, and hrs been readily borne. It  is as easy to put a tax on a hat manufacturer, for instance, aB it is on the  sale of liquor.

Co., Grain Merchants, Winnipeg.  Winnipeg, August 4.���������A  week ago  today    saw    the   beginning of what  seems likely to be  the biggest,  and  probably the mo-rt momentous European war^that has ever been engaged  in.    Onthe 28th of July Austria declared war on her neighbor; the little  Kingdom of Servia:    At first it was  evident thatYRussia  desired to help1  to settle the trouble between Austria  and Servia by friendly means, but Austria having put her hand to the plow  would not listen to anything but punishment for Servia, for her aggravating ways in always trying    to make  trouble for Austria.    Under the presumption that Russia was going    to  help Servia against Austria, Germany,  Austria's friend, abruptly asked Russia what she intended to do about it.  As Russia evaded giving a definite reply  Germany  declared  war    against  Russia, and then in about the same  fashion declared war against France,  made breaks cf neutrality by invading  Belgium and the Duchy of Luxemburg.  Great Britain? by Sir Edward Grey, did  everything    possible    through,    diplomatic means to get. the various, powers to agree to keep the war confinel  to Austria and Servia, but Germany  would have none of it, and at last, after Belgium appealing to Great Britain, one of ihe guaranteeing' powers  of Belgium neutrality, and Great Britain asking Germany if she respected  Belgium:.neutrality .and demanding a  satisfactory explanation of her having  invaded Belgium. Germany's reply was  of such a light r.nd evasive character  that itwas received in the house of  commons with derisive laughter, and  thus Great Britain has also declared  war against Germany.    All this  has  happened ��������� within one short week, and  it has brought chaos to the business  and financial interests of the world in  a way no war ever did beforehand it  is impossible to forecast the grave developments and changes which    will  take place in the position and circumstances of millions of people who have  neither part nor lot in this great political upheaval.  As regards the grain trade, and especially the wbeat trade, the first effect of the war was to cause wild excitement in the speculative markets,  and" abnormal advances in prices, followed quickly by nearly as sharp declines, and this happened in all the  Wheat markets of the world, causing  a  most   demoralizing   situation  from  the 28th to 31st of July. A steadier  feeling came with Aug. ist, and in the  last two days a steady strong tone has  taken hold cf the American markets  and Winnipeg, and the smere speculative   trading  hiis   been   very "greatly  suppressed,  by clearing houses    and  commission   firms  demanding    mucn  larger margins than usual.   The present advance in  wheat  values''which  came to a climax in the excitement of  tbe past week really began just before  the middle of July.    At first it-was  merely the -..atural reaction from the  long decline that took place in June  on the strength1 of the United States  big winter wheat, crop which this year  by July estimate is 663,000,000 bushels,  compared  with    523,000,000    bushels  last year, and an average of 441,000,-  000 bushels in tho last five years.   In  a few days the apprehension of shrinkage In the .J.S. and Canadian spring  wheat crops hy heat and drought gave  strength to the markets,  after that  the rumbling rumors previous to the  war helped the advance a little, and  then it blazed up when war was de-  qlared.    The advance in prices .from  about the iriiCdle of July to the present date has been 12c to i7c por bushel, according to month and marke':,  the    largest  advances being in our  Winnipeg market.   There   has    been  some fear that owing to thc difficulty,  tho   probable high exponso antl risk,  and perhaps  imposJlbility  of exporting wheat to Europe during the war,  the prlco or valuo on this Bldo of the  Atlantic would naturally decline to a  moderate level.    Such .Is not the case  yot, and there is not likely to be any  danger ot that after all.    At first it  looked so impossible to contlnuo ox-  port grain basinoss ou usuul lines, that  tho exporters at New  York resolved  on Saturday that, thoy would not put  a bushel afloat, except they wore paid  the'cash for 11 beforo it was loaded Into vessel.

With all sailings across the  Atlantic. from Canadian ports completely stopped, these men could not  leave Canada, even if they wanted to.  It is, of course, possible that they  could proceed via the United States  by United States vessels, though it is  believed that the United States might  place technical difficulties in the way  of their crosf.in__ the border.  It is even doubtful whether the goV**  ernment would rake any action to stop  the departure cf these men via the  United States It is realized that their  absence from Canada at the present  juncture would be preferable to their  presence.  There ai'e large numbers of Austrians in Ottawa at present. ,A few  days ago hundreds of them stopped  work on the new rifle ranges with the  intention of going home. Their numbers have been supplementd by a  large number who were in the employ of J. R  Booth in the woods.

Memory Y **r?es 42-44���������Golden Text.  Matt, xxi, 42���������Commentary Prepared  by Rev. D, M. Stearns.  During thtse last days of the week  preceding His crucifixion as He taught  daily in the''temple and went at night  to the Mount of Olives He spake many  things in His  farewell messages    to  this unbelieving nation. Most of them  are recorded by ��������� M. tthew, Mark and  Luke, but some by Matthew only. This  lesson,  concerning  tlie  vineyard  and  the   wickel husbandmen, is recorded  in each of the first three gospels. It is  the oid story of the love of Cod and  the base and s .nful ingratitude of man.  He loves the whole world, and "whosoever" meana any one anywhere ia  the wide world (John iii, 16). IJe chose  Israel to be a peculiar treasure untn  Him above all people.   He separated  them, from all people to be His inheritance, He brought -them unto Himself  that they might be a people near to  Him, and He never dealt so with any  other nation     He did. this for theni  that through them other nations might  learn to know Him for   their   good.  (Ex. six,  4,  5;   II Sam. vii,-22-24;   I  Kings viii,'53"  Ps. cxlvii, 20;  cxlviii,  14; Isa. lxiii, 11-14).   Israel being set  aside for an age. He is gathering from  all the nations the willing whosevers  to be a peculiar people unto Himself  that through them the world may believe and know Him (Tit. ii, 14; John  xvii, 21-23).   The church, these called  out ones,  is failing  as Israel failed,  but He shall not fail or be discouraged,  and In ijis time and in His way there  shall be seen en earth the consummation of His eternal purpose in a kingdom, of righteousness and peace which  shall \ never end.  His dealings with Israel and their  treatment  of  Him  were  written   for  our benefit that we might avoid their  failures     and bear better fruit than  they did (I Cor. x, 6-12; Rom. xv, 4).  We have sean recently that Israel was  compared to a vine and also to a fig  tree and an  olive tree, but the one  thing always desired was fruit. Compare Ezek. xv and John xv. The most  full account in Jsa. iv.- 1-7, where His  care of it is described somewhat as in   Y  ourx lesson, and He asks, "What eould  have been done more to my vineyard  that I have not done in it?" Compare  Ps. ixxx, ������, a; Jer, ii,i2i; Hois, x, 1.  -The housel older's going   to : a far  country for a long time    (verse 44;  Luke xx, 9; reminds us of the story of  the pounds, and talents, but there is  evidently a backward look here to the  days of the prophets, as in Matt, xxiii,  34-39, as well as to this present age.  A summary o������ their treatment of the  Lord and His messengers is Hound ia  II Chron. xxxv. 16, "They mocked the  messengers of God and despised Hia  words and misused His prophets until  the wrath ot the Lord arose against  His people, till there was no remedy."  He was only seeking:that which was  His own, fruit from His own vlnieyard  for which He had done all that He  could, some gratitude for all His love  to them.   Surely a reasonable expectation on His part, but this cruel treatment was t'-el-* reply to all that He  had done for tbem.  Having sent s.rvant after servant,  only to receive the same ill treatment,  last of all H3 sent unto them His son,  saying, ''They will reverence My son"  (verse 37). The recordrJn,Mark,x������. 6,  is "Having yet therefore one Son, His  well beloved, Ho sent Him also last  unto them.' But they said when they  saw  Him, "This  is  the  heir;   come,  let us kill Him and let us seize on His  inheritance." This they did, and cur  Lord says whr-t shall be done unto  such husbandmen.   Their   reply is In  verse 41.   So He condemns them out  of their own mouth.   Then He showed them from  their   own Scriptures  that all their evil conduct had been  foreseen by the God    who   so loved  ihem.   But it was as plainly foretold  that the rejected ono would yet bo tho  honored ono. He called their attention  to Ps. cxvlli, 22; no doubt having la  mind also Gen. xllx, 24; for theie Is no  more wonderful type of Christ It the  whole Btble than Joseph in IiIb surfer-  ,lugs and his'glory, his cruel treatment  pnd virtual death at their hands, their  reject-on of him and his dreams and  thoir literal fulfilling of    the same in  bowing dowr- to hlni for their lives after so many years. Onr Lord had probably in mind also Isa xxvlll, 10; Dan.  11, 34, 35, 45.    Seo tho references ot  Peter and Paul to the same    great  truths conccrnfng Christ as tho stone  rejected, but yot to bo honored (Acts  iv, 11, 12;  I Pot. 11, 6-8;  Rhp, il, 20).  When men grow angry in their rebellion agalrst God and nations rage  nnd   1'lnr.H   nnd   rulers   tako    nounsol  against Him Ho can laugh at thoir impotence an.l cay In quietness,    "Yot  have I suL uiy King upon my holy hill  of 5-lon" (Ps. II, 1-6).    Tho    believer  may woll rejoice that "tho counsel of  the    Lord     BUuulotli      forever,    the  thought-, of His heart to all generations," that "eyery purpose of the Lor.]  shall be pcri'armcd" and say gladly, "I  know that Thou canst do everything  and no thought ot Thine cun b<- liiudcr-  od" (Vn, xxxlll, 11; Jer. li. 29: Job xll!,  2; margin).

Sho has now passed away and to  lier husband's heavy responsibilities  as the head of a great nation is  added the inexpressible sorrow of  the greatest of all bereavements,  the breaking of a tie, which time,  affection and sympathetic interest  in each other's welfare must have  rendered very precious.

However- unpopular a war m which  she fought side by side with Germany  ���������ind Austria might have been in Italy,  the Italian Government would have  undertaken such a war rather than go  back on its plighted word.  Second, every one who reads the  blue book ,-just issued can see how  many and earnest have been the efforts  of Italy to maintain tho peace, of Europe, and that in this matter she was  in complete sympathy with Britain.  The neutrality of Italy is only a  little short of an alliance with the  Triple Entente for it permits  France to leave her southeastern  frontior with a minimum of protection, and eliminates the Italian  navy from hostilities in the Mediterranean.  It also forces Austria to maintain  a force on hor southern boundary,  for it ir within tho possibilities pf  the situation that Italy may not  care to resist tho temptation to recover territory which sho was  forced to abandon to hor former ally.  n, kj ctC/ Pk. ^ ij 11  Don't  iviioS  This    I  bargain!

Heart of the Hailstone  If it were not for the countless trl-  lions of dust particles that float separately invisible iu the atmosphere  there could be no raindrops, snow  crystals or iiai-stones. From a perfectly dustless atmosphere the moisture would descend in ceaseless rr.i-_  without drops. The dust particles  serve as nuclei about"which the vapor  gathers. The snow crystals is the  most beautiful creation of tlie aerial  moisture, and the hailstone is the  most extraordinary. The heart of  every hailstone is a tiny atom of dust.  Such an atom, with a little moisture  condensed about it, is the germ from  which may grow a hailstone capabl.  of felling a man or smashing a window. But first it must be caught up  by a current of air and carried to the  level of tbe lofty cirrus clouds, five or  sis or even *������n miles high. Then, continually gro-. ing by fresh accession of  moisture, it begins its first plunge to  the eijrth, spinning t-irough tlie clouds  and Dashing in thc sun like a diamond  bolt shot from a rainbow.

Mr. Jerry began feebly,  "You can't do more than keep your  word, Mo." * * * Mo, a fine old  ex-prizeflghter, replies:  "Yes, you carv*. Jerry. You can keep  your meanin'.

A "Mite"  The difficulties experienced by our  forefathers in trying to reckon money  in very small proportions appear in  in the sixteenth and seventeenth century books of commercial arithmetic.  The original 'mite" seems to have  been a third of a Flemish penny, but  the use of uie word for the widow's  coin of the New Testament made its  regular English meaning half a farthing, and pome old people may remember applying the name to the  short lived nineteenth century coins of  thta value. In those old arithmetic  books "mite" standi, for various values not represented by actual coins,  but obviously used in reckoning. A  work of 1706 makes it one-twelfth of a  penny, two sixteenth century books  one-sixty-fourth of a penny.���������London  Jeake's arithmetic made it as little, as  one-sitxy-fourth of a penny.���������London  Chronicle.

System,  which has 'como to play an important  part in all business nowadays, has  made baggage handling a rather simple  matter for the railroads.

It is the third of  these units, counting back from the  final number, that is the-key to the  whole system of dstribution. The ex-,  pressman who handles the baggage for  its home distribution hands into the  baggage agent his mass of collected  checks, all sorted on that basis, and  the baggage handlers hustle the stuff  out with very little delay.

The Revenge of Neglected Things  We may aa well face the fact that so  16ng ss we and our children are at  large in a community, we shall be in  danger --from, all the evils that are  also at large in that community, and.  though we may be able to exclude  from our homes,.the moth, the house,  fly, the agent g,nd the burglar, we cannot exclude germs. They ride in on  the trails of bu?* gowns, they are  tracked in on bur shoes. They come in  food and drink, in washes, in clothing,  in wares. They come by mesengers  and carriers and .servants, as do, the  influences of evil." :"....-  "We need not go to the slums if we  do not 'Wish. They will come to us,  and* wreaking upon us the Revenge of  Neglected Things, they will avenge  the poor.  Yet it is not vengeance the poor are  wanting.

The revenge of the t slums falls not  only upon the individual, but upon the  city, in all its interests and activities.  It falls upon the city in losses of"  lives and money, taxes paid for pauperism, for crime, for the cost of disease.  It falls upon the city organizations  that ignore tho sldths, by-the light of  their" very ugliness and meanness,  which frightens renters and buyers  froni the neighborhood, and injures all  adjacent property.  It falls upon them, too, by breeding  a class of citizens that are -a dead  ���������weight to civic progress.  It falls, upon the business interests  by ki!_ing?or weakening valuable work-  1 ing men, whose loss is felt in traffic,  , trade and manufacture.  It falls upon the churches^by raising up those who defeat and defy  them, by lowering the whole moral  tone of the community, and increasing  the resistance^to the powers of good.  These are the ways in. which we are  scourged by the slums', and until "we j  learn our lesson, We must continue to  suffer as well as the poor.���������Albion  Fellows?

Limited  Rural mail delivery to Canyon City,  a flag station between Duck Creek and  Creston, pound district boundaries,  and .other matters were to the fore at  the August - meeting of tbe Creston  board.of trade, which was held Tuesday night.  President Reid occupied the 'chair,  supported by Secretary Henderson,  and a fairly, representative turnout of  members. ^  After adopting the minutes, of the  'July mooting the correspondence received since last meeting''virus, redd.  There was a letter from a jeweler at  Herbert, Sask., enquiring if there was  an opening in Creston in that line of  business, also a co_nuHi.._oatic>it from a  Vancouver gentleman re tho value of  some property he is interested in here,,  Tho secretary of the Western Canada  Irrigation.---Congi-eas? which convenes  at Pontictoii this mouth, invites all the  members of the Creston board to come  to the convention. There was a similar invitation from Grand Forks for a  record attendance at the convention of  the Associated Boards of Trade at the  Fulls next month.  There was also correspondence from  the C.P.R. and the railway commission concerning the board's request  that, a flag station be established midway betweon Duck Creek and Creston.  The railway had investigated the matter quite thoroughly and for two reasons could not comply with tbe petition. First, the suggested site for the  station was not a desirable one from  an operating standpoint, and secondly  only during the busy fruit season  would there be sufficient business to  warrant establishing a stop. They  could do nothing this year, but the  the matter would have . their serious  consideration for 1915.  Rural mail delivery from Creston  through the Canyon City district was  'discussed but no  definite actioiiAvas  -ken.  sThe feature of the meeting was the  discussion regarding the boundaries of  the pound district." At a previous  meeting an area which included practically the whole district, -excepting  the mountains and .flats, had been  agreed upon and the minister of agriculture had been petitioned to set it  apart. Since .then it had been learned  there vvas considerable objection to so  much territory'. being thus ? set aside*  After discussing the' question from all  angles a committee of Messrs. Gibbs,  Speers and Henderson were appointed  to go into the matter aud report at the  next meeting. It was suggested that  h district which embraced the territory half a mile in every direction  with the postoffico as a centre would  be found unobjectionable by all parties  interested.  There will be an emergency meeting  of the board next Tuesday evening for  the purpose of drafting the resolutions  the. Creston board wish to submit for  consideration at the convention of the  Associated Boards of Trade at Grand  Forks in September. A good turnout  is asked for at this special meeting  which will commence at 8.30 prompt.  __������_���������  ������WM"Y!'LJ_I  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINIG REGULATIONS  Ooal niiniuR rights of the Dominion,  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Al'iorta  fho Yukon Territory, tho North woBt  Territories and In a portion of tbe Province of British Colnmbia, may beloasod  for a term of twenty-one years nt  au nun aai rentiil of $1 nn aero.
