R. J. Stocks,  artillery, killed in action November 18th."  This brief but, grim message, that  came by wirefto Mr. and Mrs. James  Stocks on Tuesday afternoon, has  plunged that home into deepest  mourning, for Pfce^ Stocks was an only  son, and the only member of this well-  known family���������-and he] \yas not quite  20 years of age; he would have celebrated bis twentieth anniversary had  he lived until the 17th of the present  .month. -  Pte. Stocks enlisted with the 54th  Battalion in September, 1015, and  after some three months training  with this corps at Vernon he was sent  overseas with the regiment. His  Gaining was completed at Bramshott,  which training centre he left in  August./gaping direct to France, and  almost immediately to the firing line.  His ability with the rifle was quite  marked and it was only a. few. weeks  until he was transferred }P'*ipAAiih������  machine gun squad, with which he  served until the fated November 18th;  without the siighest mishap. Frequent;  letters from him-werefuU of optimism  as to the successful termination of the  war in time to -see him home for  Christmas dinner next ye*"*, nnd he  never seemed quite so happy as when  relating, of returning;: the: enemy's  shell fire with - interest��������� both - as to  quantity and damage.  The late Roy James Stocks was born  at Lakeland, Manitoba, and came to  Oreston with his parents in ' 1004.  After completing' his public school  course he took commercial training  in the Nelson business college, aud oil  graduating froin thei-e-'W^- stenogra  phei at the Fruit Growers Union u p  till the time he enlisted. iRoy bad a  host of friends here- Everybody  admired ahd liked him���������you couldn't  help it, that's ail���������and his demise,  even in the grandest of a!! causes, is  the more genuinely regretted in consequence of this wide popularity.  In such a trial words are very feeble  fco e xpress the sympathy that the  people of ths Creston Valley feel foi*  Mr. and Mrs. Stocks in their greatest  breavemeut, but with aii the in-  .���������iufliciency The Review joins with  their host of friends in such expression  of genuine regard in their hour of  trial, with the great assurance that  "He gave, He took, He will restore  again, He doeth all things well."  These for the Empire stood in war  array.  Barring the Hun invader on his way;  Into the battle rushed at Duty's call,  Resolved to hold their trenches or to  fall;  That Britons   ne'er  to tyrants bend  their knee.  But live us they were   horn,  unyoked  and free.  Now, in the bosom of a distant land  .   These warriors sleep, for such in God's  command.

Although Saturday was anything  but au ideal day for going out, the  Women's Institute meeting that  afternoon attracted an attendance of  about 40 members. Excellent reeeipes  for Christmas cake: and Christmas  plum pudding were given by Mrs. W.  K. Brown and Mrs. H. B. Downs  respectively.  The display of -Christmas gifts, all  made frbm material costing 25 cents  and less attracted -much attention,  and the prize''for.; the most useful and  tactfulgift was awarded Mrs. Forrester. After .the aw the  articles were auctioned, netting $5.25,  which aniouti tVwas'tiirned over to the  Creston Red Cross1 Auxiliary.  Another feature was a rafiie for a  string of rose beads donated by Mrs.  Jas. Compton. These ^ realized $2.10,  which will go to the Servian Relief  Fund. Refreshments were served at  the . close by. Mesdames .Fairhead,  Mallandaine and Timmons.  21 members have paid their dues for  next year. In this connection The  Review is asked to call attention to  the fact thiit the annual meeting of  the Institute will "be held the -first  Saturday in January, at which the  officers for W17 will be chosen. As  oniy members who have their dues  paid in advanee. are entitled to vote  it is asked that all the ladies make a  special effort to haye their membership paid for 19I7spme tune prior to  the annual meeting,,and thus ensure  a thoroughly, ^representative vote  when the new officers -are chosen.  balance outstanding, nearly all of  which should be collectable, of $161.25.  The auditors, P. G. Ebbutt and J. W.  Hamilton certify the budget correct.  The meeting, also adopted a resolution recommending the provincial  authorities to appoint Sergt. Quinn of  Harrop, a returned soldier, to the  shei'i valifcy of Kootenay.  Votes of thanks were tendered all  who had in any way helped to give  the good work such a creditable year,  particularly those who had done the  actual canvassing for subscriptions.  The executive Will meet this week to  arrange for another canvass for funds  as it is desirable to get the work over  before the Christmas season proper is  ushered in.  For this year Creston and district  is called upon to contribute not less  than $2500. The canvassers wiii work  to.that end. Between now and being  culled vjnoti citizens should decide ���������'ust  how generous their contribution will  be, and thus save the canvassers time  in talking it over.* You never gave  in a better cause in all your life,  Figure out how much you can spare  and then tack oh another 50 per cent.  No doubt you'll have to scratch to  make good your '-promise,. hut the  sacrifices you may have to make will  be worthwhile.  ons  jOOIOOI  Report for Ms?  *j,-*������v  yr. t  Division I.���������R.

Could Be Redeemed By Denmark By  Payment of Pledge  The Orkney Islands, says Pearson's Magazine, do not really belong  to Great Britain in thc sense that  they were ever ceded_ by treaty or  acquired by conquest. They were  simply transferred by Denmark to  Scotland in 1468, in pledge for the  payment of the dowry of the Princess  of Denmark, vvho was married to  James III., King of Scotland. .In the  deed of transfer, which is still in  existence, it is specially mentioned  that Denmark shall have the right to  redeem them at any future time by  paying the original amount of the  dowry with  interest to date.  There is no likelihood, however,  that Denmark will ever attempt to  exercise her right of redemption, because sixty thousand florins, the  original amount of the dowry, plus  compound interest for 448 years,  would amount to perhaps a trillion  pounds, and that is a bit more than  the islands are worth.  ^11 Gi  Worms, however generated, are  found in the digestive tracts, where  they set up disturbances detrimental  to the health of the child.

Standard Type in Stables  Modern efficiency is rapidly evolving a standard type of barn and stable. This barn is about thirty-six feet  wide, and as long as may be necessary to accommodate the number of  cattle kept^ou the farm. This provides for two rows of cattle and gives  the owner an opportunity to regulate  the inside furnishings properly and to  instal feed and manure carriers, and  to use milking machines. Thc manufacturers of the inside furnishings  for dairy stables have standardized  their stalls, stanchions and mangers  to conform to these measurements.  in building a new barn or remodelling an old barn it is always better  to consult an expert and have definite  plans to follow while the work is being done.���������Successful  Farming,  TBI,* pais   uroATuvn  11U. 1/iL.L ?T������<mri������,i\  HARD ON LITTLE ONES  Canadian fall weather is extremely  hard on little ones.

The Imperial Munitions/ Board will  supervise the aviation school, half of  the stall of competent-instructors is  being provided by the Imperial government and also the employes for  the establishment and operation of  the factory. It is understood that  the British Government will then take  the output of thc factory during the  war.  Canadian aviators at the front  have been eminently successful and  establishment of the school is a just  recognition of their services, in the  Somrne the Canadian aviators have  played a prominent part. At the oat-  break of the war some Canadian military authorities had little confidence  in the aeroplanes as fighting scouting  craft. The use of those machines  have proven their value, and Canada  will soon have an aviation branch of  the service in keeping with sts various other military forces.  Williams  Medicine  Ont.

While such a move would legalize  certain legislation passed at the  last session���������after March 14���������  which the opposition argued was  not in BsG.'s best interests the  suggested move is a likely-looking  solution to a problem that many  people in this province do not even  semi-seriously appreciate.  Wise and Otherwise  Some fine day this week, or next,  the canvassers from the Creston  Branch of the Canadian Patriotic  Fund will be calling on you for a  renewal of your guarantee of funds  for this good cause. To save you  the trouble to enquiring of the  canvassers "Where does all this  money go ?" we will explain.  To the dependents of soldiers helow  the rank of sergeant the Government  pays a separation allowance of $20.00  per month and as a condition requires  the soldier to assign at least $15.00 per  month of hin pay. Assuming that the  soldier's dependents have only thin  monthly income of $85.00 the Patriotic  Fund supplements it hy allowances  ranging from $5.00 in 40.00 according  11> lhe si'/.e of  tin*   family,   its  state of  Kaslo Kootenaian: St. Mark's  church is rejoining in the ownership  of ii large and brand new queen heater, a donation made, by F.

On account of election misinformation supplied we bespeak a front  seat for Mayor Anderson.  Scientists tell us there is no  advance in 90 per cent, of the real  necessities of life.

So far water rates remain unchanged���������and Mayor Little informs  that the supply will be excellent if  we get the winter he has arranged  for. As for the air nothing quite  equals a little exercise at the end  of a snowshovel first thing in the  morning.

Sib,���������It is rumored around town  and district that at the last meeting  of the local Liberal executive a resolution was passed restricting the membership of the whole local association  to the present roll of seventeen  members.  John Keen, M.P.P., received about  one hundred votes in the Valley.  Surely the other-eighty seven supporters are entitled to some consideia-  tion?  By votiugfor Keen we thought we  were downing "Bowserism" and  smashing the machine. Now we find  a local machine in operation that  would make Kaiser Bill green with  enyy. Perhaps it may be that after  the recommendations for appoint  ments are in Victoria, and the present  officers have re-elected themselves,  the other eighty seven may be permitted to say they are Liberals.

An investigation into the recent  escape of half a dozen interns at.  Morrissey showed that the guards did;  not think they had authority to  shoot in case of a prisoner trying to  make his escape.

BRUCE SAVES BREWSTER  The province is safe; at least tolerably so. While there are no native  sons���������Sir Richard McBride's foremost  qualification���������of high destiny, or  otherwise, in the aggregation, the  day is saved, due to the presence of a  native of Bruce Oouutv in Ontario 'or  Ontario in Bruce County, as you  prefer), and one other gentleman who  hails originally from Prince Edward  Island.  With these sheet anchors on the  ship of state's manifest what matters  it that the other six gentlemen who  make up the crew come from New  Brunswick t\v-.* of them; from England  yet another two ; and the remaining  couple from Huron and Oxford counties respectively, also in Ontario.  Firstly, and to begin with Premier  Brewster is a New Bi-unswicker,  which doubtless accounts, for the i������no  patronage" plank in his platform,, for  it is common knowledge that, in that  province about half the people have  goyernment jobs and the other half  want them. Even a childhood spent  in such an atmosphere would turn  any evenly-balanced public man to the  verv reverse condition.  Dr. King, the other New Bruns-  wicker. who in previous sessions of  the legislature demonstrated that the  fish diet of Iris native province helped  some in supplying gray matter of the  political sort. Of course the doctor  comes by his Liberalism honestly.  Ihey do say that his father, Senator  King so far forgot himself on one  occasion while at Baptist meetin' in  Cranbrook as to vigorously applaud  when the pastor made some complimentary reference to Sir Wif red  Laurier in a learned but otherwise  arid address.  The saviours, aforesaid, of the administration, are M. A. Macdonald,  who confesses to seeing the light of  day at Lucknow, Bruce county, and  Dr, MacLean vvho spent his childhood  days on "the island." Every cabinet  has to have its bad un, and it looks as  if Mr. Macdonald will have to be the  goat for the prosont outfit. Should he  be found Hying up to this reputation  no blame can attach to hits "hringin'R  up," however as his parents came  direct from Scotland to settle in that  part of Western Ontario famod for  tossing the caber and othor Caledonian games.  Undoubtedly Dr, MacLean, who is  in charge of tho schools of the province,  will be long on tho highor education,  lie jnut can't help but be, M>uiug that  he taught for some years at Bossland,  which hae an elevation of some 5000  feet more or lona.  l������Ir.

In "An American's Report of Ten  Months in Germany," D. T. Curtin.  ������*?������ Boston, Mass., writes as follows:  Early in August last I was in Berlin. The British-French offensive  which had begun on July 1. outwardly appeared to attract little notice in  Germany. Even in the highest military quarters it was considered Britain's final bluff. The great maps in  the shop windows of every street  showed no change, and still show no  change worth noticing. "The maps  speak," say the Germans.  One hot evening in Berlin 1 met a  young officer whom 1 had known on  a previous visit. I noticed he was ill  and out of sorts. He told me he had  been unexpectedly called to his regi-  saent on the western front. "How is  that?" I said.

"These English," he.said, "arc* putting every man they have got into a  final ridiculous attempt to make us  listen to peace terms. My leave was  cut short this evening." We had a  glass of beer. "You have been lo  England, haven't you?" he inquired.  1 told him I had been there last year.  "They seem to have more soldiers  than we thought," he said. "They  seem to be learning the business. My  battalion has suffered terribly."  The next day there were oilier  rumors in Berlin, rumors unknown  to the masses. It was suggested to  me by a friend that if I wanted to  learn the truth I should go to Potsdam and see the arrival of the wounded of the famous Prussian Guard,  who had had a terrible experience at  the hands of the English in Contal-  siaison on July 10. Hc drew mc  aside and told mc that the state of  things on the Somme if known**  throughout Germany would effectively destroy the pretension of the annexationist party, vvho believed that  Germany had won the war and would  hold Belgium, the conquered portion  cf France and Poland. He told me  " tS go ont to Potsdam with caution  And warned me that I would have the  utmost difficulty in getting anywhere  near the artillery signs at the railway  station. " "*���������  I, asked another extremely well-informed friend   if   anything   particular  England ask, "Aren't they beginning  to learn the truth-3" I reply (hat some  are, but that lhe great majority think  exactly what they are told. The  great newspaper searchlight today is  switched on Hindenburg Almost all  of these industrious human ants think  of nothing but Hindenburg. The loan  whicli is now dragging its slow  length along is the "Hindenburg  loan"; Silesia has named a town Hindenburg; newly arrived infants are  loaded down with the name; the daily  tobacco stores display "Hindenburg  cigars," and the bust* of the fierce-  looking warrior is in every middle-  class house. The deification of Hindenburg and the downfall of England are the uppermost thoughts in  the whole German mind, though a  few thoughtful cynics in high places  reiTard him as a wrii advertized  dummy  ���������eras happening in the war, and told  Bim I thoueht of going to Potsdam.  He said: "What for? There is nothing seen there���������the same old drill  ing and drilling." So well are secrets  keot in Germany.  However, 1 went, and what I saw  in Potsdam would, if known to the  German people, shake the very foundation of the empire.

He  claims to have solved the problem.  His compound, whieh has been patented wherever possible, is said to  have been partly the result of an accident. He had. been working for  years  upon  a   certain   Formula.  In making up another formula he  made a mistake, and the result exceeded thc. expectations which he  cherished all along. To put his discovery to s severe test, iip made a  motorcar tyre, one-half of which was  rubber and the other half of his composition. The tyre has been used  foY four months, has travelled 1,500  miles and is still  running.  France's Legacy After War  New   Railways  Built and  Other  Iro-  Improvements  Made  Through  Exigencies oi the War  When the merry bells of peace ring  throughout France, and her exiled  sons turn to their devastated homes  in Northern France, there will at  least be some compensation for the  deluge of blood and iron that turned  their  Edenic fields into a hell.  Mr Warner Allen, with timely  thought, reminds France of what she  will possess as a legacy from the  war "There are many places in  France." he points out. "that have for  years been clamoring for light railway facilities. The exigencies of  modern war have provided them today with a profusion of railway corn-  municalions, and when peace is declared, however much the rails may  have been torn up by shell fire, the  tracks will still be there for future  use.

One of the most  intelligent men in Germany, one  whose political experience is of the  widest, has only been able to draw  one conclusion from the terrible  drama which is at present shaking  Europe to its foundations by the will  of Germany���������th������%t is, that - German  militarism must be developed. "We  must strengthen ourselve<#S������ on our  coasts and on our frontiers. The result of the war must not be negative,  but positive. Thc re-establishment  of the stajtuj* quo ante bellum would  mean for Germany not a gain but a  loss. We must insist upon an augmentation of guarantees and of real  securities."  Annexations and annexations,** and  stili more annexations, such is the  theme of Prince Bulow, just the same  as those of Burian, Bethmann, Tisza  and others.\ After four- anu twenty  months of impotence, Germany confesses to what her intentions are.  What would they have been if. as  cshe intended, she had won in six  weeks? . . No peace can be lasting which is not founded upon the  complete and total defeat of Germany, a defeat which will enable the  conquerors to takc thc maximum of  guarantees against Prince Bulow's  plans.    ...  Prince Bulow knows the country  will agree with him; but'in expressing his views he pronounces the  country's condemnation. German  militarism and the German nation  are one, he tells us. Hence the necessity imposed upon us of taking precautions in the future not only  against the military organization, but  also against the people who arc  identified therewith. ��������� Le Temps,!

Jjt.,11       Ui  for    the    next  well, was behind in its facilities, and  no one in Europe would buy Russian  wheat without seeing it.  Mr. Dunning also referred to ihe  agitation which is going on in some  quarters to permit mixing of grain in  the terminal elevators and tor provincial grading. He thought it would  be the greatest mistake in the world  to allow,it. "The reputation of the  Canadian Government grade certificate in Europe is too valuable to  lose," he continued. "Any mixing of  grades would not deceive the European miller for one moment, and our  certificate would bc held in the same  suspicion as that of the United  States."  Canada is situated geographically  at a greater disadvantage than any  of its competitors in the world's market. "We have a very long rail haul,  and rail hauling bf grain is thc most  expensive method. The United  States can hardly be taken into account because they are becoming less  and less a factor in the world's market. Any grain which they export  and which comes into competition  with Canada is chiefly exported from  the two coasts or close to the great  lakes, and thus they have a short  haul."  Speaking with reference to the Argentine, Mr. Dunning stated that the  grain growing area is nowhere more  than five hundred miles from water  transportation. This transportation  is not like our great lakes, which involves two or three transfers, but  is one of the greatest rivers in the  world. Ocean-going steamers come  right up to the ports. They have an  advantage in view of the fact thr.t  they have the cheap peon labor, a  thing not desired in Canada. Mr.  Dunning pointed out that he was  speaking at all times of conditions  as they exist in normal times and  his whole address must be taken  from that point of view.  As to Australia, the wheat belt was  merely a belt and nothing else. The  belt was round the coast, for as  everyone knew, the interior was a  great desert. In Australia the wheat  ripened and was threshed right on  the field. There was no very great  expense involved, and they also had  an advantage in ocean transportation. The Australian tari/T regulations with thc Motherland gave them  an advantage which Canada did not  possess. Australia has a far mors  marked British preference than Canada for their importations of British  goods. They had a lower freight  rate because vessels coming to tahc  wheat over came loaded with good:t,  while of the vessels carrying Canadian p-rniu ninf eithfr '.���������������������������.th half ***,  cargo or with a cargo not very pro-  fitahle.  India possessed the cheapest labor  in the world, and Russia, the greatest  wheat producing country in the  world, could produce at a low cost.  "It is useless to speak of a home  market." continued Mr, Dunning, "so  long as we arc exporting two-thirds  of what we produce, and the pos:;l-  oiiiji.s u������ piuduciioii, hit i;m* as grain  is concerned, aro so far ahead of  itu |H..'.Mijiiiiii r-. ...i i unsumpiiori that  it will always he regulated by the  prii*i* at Liverpool."  The cost of producing grain in  Saskatchewan was stated by the  Saskatchewan Grain Commission to  be approximately 62 cents to produce  and place at the railway point a  bushel in nn average year, under average conditions by an average farmer.  At the time this figure was made  known there was a great deal of criticism of it, but Mr. Dunning said he  was glad to sec thai this figure has-  been-ponfinncd by the Census Bureau  of the Dominion Government and the  Department of Agriculture. Transportation and expenses to Liverpool  cost approximately 34 cents in aver-"  age times from the ordinary Saskatchewan country point, which meant  that when the price of whrat went  below the dollar mark at Liverpool  the farmer lost money.  German Terribleness  Never a More Monstrous Hallucination Than That Which Holds  the Teutonic Mind  For twenty-five months the Ger*  man soldier, like the German sailor,  has been sowing hate and loathing  and enduring detestation in the  hearts of millions. He has not won  a world by il; he has not won a war  by it. The battles that he fias won  have been through the superiority ol  his organization, or his preparation,  not througli the fear he has put in  the hearts of his foes. There has  never been a time when his fo"- ���������  lhat 55, the individual fighting man ���������  was afraid of him.  What  a  strange delusion  this  German idea is, at once ludicrous and revolting!     How  deeply  into  the mind  of  the  German  has  sunk   the chatter  about a "superior race!"   As if it were  conceivable     that     people     of     the  French,     Russian     or.  British   nation,  with  all  their  centuries  of  war     and  courage,     of battle  andgconquest  behind   them,   could   be   shaken   by   the  mere prescnie before  them  of troops  of a nation which is but a newcomer  in  the world and has seen its capital  occupied    and    its sovereigns humiliated, its armies routed and scattered  by   Frenchmen     and     Russians  mor**-  than once.  Nor is it less preposterous for the  German to imagine thai the men who  willingly and completely dedicate  their lives to the service of their  country, who go forth to battle prepared to die, can be frightened. Never  was there a more monstrous hallucination than that wliich holds the Teutonic mind in thrall. The German  sees himself irresistible, terrible, all-  compelling; then he transfers this  self-appraisal to the mind of his foe.  To act upon the state of mind he  conceives to exist in the enemy, he  has recourse to devices which a foolish nurse might employ to terrify a  nervous child.  There is only one thing that  Ger  man terribleness has accomplished in  this world so far.    ft has dug a gulf  between    the   German   and the   rest ���������  of  civilized   mankind.      Millions     of  men   for   thc   rest   of  their  life-time  will feel toward the German as most  of mankind feels toward a snake. The  crimes,   the  offences  against   humanity, decency, against all human    and  divine law wliich has marked German  policy since August, 1914, have opened ^ chasm that it  will be many decades   before    11   new   German   spirit  could close.���������New  York Tribune.  Destruction of Rheims  , Rheims in tune ol peace had si*'  thousand houses intact; ol these, two  thousand have been entirely destroyed and three thousand have been  damaged more or less seriously The  Germans have guns at a distance of  just one mile from the Cathedral, and  the Cathedral is in the very heart of  Rheims. Even with their field girns  of .77 calibre stationed at Nogcnt  1'Abessee and in the tamous fori of  Brimont they can hurl tihells upon the  Cathedral. The two greatest industries of the. city belore the war were  the woollen manufactures and the  making of champagne wine. The  Germans were unable to loot the 'mile  of the champagne supply or to wreck  the immense mileage of wine cellars,  but it is a different story with regard  to the woollen industry There is not  a single woollen factory left in  Rheims. The Germans' espionage  system had revealed to them the loca  tion of ������������very v.'Jiollfn  pacity and equipment.  ?.>:: ory,  M.-  Candid  "Mabel,  do   you   ever   think   about  marriage?"
