Crawford is now complete, arid a house  warming will likely be the order of  the day. The floor is double?hoai*de'd  ���������to protect the owner from further  attacks of cold feet, we are told.  G. A. Hunt was a Oreston caller on  Thursday last, while Oapt. /Forrester,  provincial police at that town, fayored  witha call ou Saturday.  A C.P.R. crew in charge of Sid Mc-  Cabeis taking out posts and piling on  some of the railway's property at this  point.  _Dr. Henderson of Creston was *a  visitor here between trains on Monday. He had his shooting irons with  him, and although he had almost a  four-hour stay no casualties are to be  noted amongst the game���������big or  siiiaii.  The deer shooting season closes today. So far as we can learn local  larders will be shy of venison unless  some of the lucky outsiders donate a  carcass or two.. Sid McCabe seems to  have been the luckiest of them all with  two bucks and a caribou to his credit.  Messrs. Forrester and Hendren have  bagged two for Creston consumption,  while R. Gallant got one for Sirdar's  benefit.  Last, week was rather a busy one  socially. On Friday night Mr. and  xivs. G. A.-Hunt entertained most of  the citizens at a whist party at their  residence, while on Saturday night  the young people . from' Crestxni and  other ppiute treated Mr; and Mrs.  Billy Johnson to & surprise party at  - the- liofcel; 'd^ncin** '������������������"being' iJontsinied  until well on intothe niorning..  Miss Hazel Andrews* who was taken  to the Nelson hospital about three  weeks ago, where she underwent an  operation for appendicitis, returned  home on Saturday, and Is rapidly- regaining her former health.  Mrs. G. Cartwright and Mrs. W:  W. Hall have been chosen to canyass  this section for the Patriotic Fund  this year, and will be on the rounds  in & few days. Miss Jeanne Palmer  wil 1, have charge of the same work at  Deei* Lodge.  G. Pendell Smith got away on Sunday to Victoria where he goes Into  training for overseas seryice, in the  army medical corps.  Mrs. E. Plater and two children   of  Elacfoot, Alta., arrived  on  Thursday  last on a visit to her mother.  Mrs.   H  Truscott.    They    will     remain   until  early in the year.  Capt. Kerr, a Salvation Army officer  from Cranbrook, was in this section  on Tuesday, drumming up funds to  help carry on the work of that  organization.  J. M. Craigie, and party, who have  been out at Rolfe mountain siuce Sunday, arrived in yesterday bringing  three blacktail buck deer and lynx  Walter Hall has just received' from  -Want the&adi&s  held on Saturday night and * routine  business transacted. The election of  officers was postponed until the 6th.  January 1017, when a joint meeting  of. .the Association'with the- ladies will  be held. -The purpose of this joint  meeting is to discuss with the ladies  of the -Cch'seryafciye party the question  whether they desire to form a separate organization ��������� or to join   with the  pr*?S.^aj(,   jrxSSOCi&cjiGM.  been decided the meeting will settle  such details of organization aa may be  . necessary and then proceed to the  election of officers. A notice calling  thejoiut meeting will be published in.  The Review in holiday week.

The new band saw works to  perfection. r    _  Geo.. Leach had the good luck to  get a twa-year old buck on the  mountain east of the mill on Monday.  Canyon City fared immensely, well  this week in ihings spiritual. Rev. R.  'E. Pow preached on Sunday afternoon  in the church room. Elder Newby  preached in the eveuing at R. Roadway's, while Capt. Kerr of the Saiva-  tion Army, Cranbrook, held service in  the company's dinning room at the  niill.  A good deal of indignation is being  expressed by some of the ratepayers  who, on receiving their land tax  notices find an increase, in some cases,  of 70 per cent, over the 1915 assessment. v One cannot help thinking  settlers here have heayy enough  burdens when it is known thlSre are  45J names on the school attendance  register, and only about one-third of.  that number belong to families that  pay taxes. In other words we give  free education to all and the settlers  pay the whole bill. Just now the  Patriotic Fund has to be supported  and these same settlers will be asked  to give as liberally as they can, while  in Canyon City there are workmen  who never received bigger' wages foi*  their line of work afc this time of year  and yet these pay; nothing into the  provincial treasury 'mnr. to help the  patriotic fund.'

With her husband, who is storekeeper  for the Canyon City Lumber Co., deceased had resided here since the fall  of 1912,.coming here from Winnipeg,  Manitoba. Although she had not enjoyed robust health for some time her  condition was not considered grave  until recently, when she was taken to  the Cranbrook hospital for treatment,  passing away within three weeks of  reaching that institution, frorii lung  trouble.    Mrs. Waylett, whose maiden  *������������������  name was Jeanie McDonald,' was in  herthiitieth year, and been married  a. little more than nine years, the  union having been solemnized at  Fernie in .1907.

Saturday morning,  plungad the Jiome of Mr. and Mrs, E.  Parker, Creston, into deepest mourning, as the mishap wan. responsible  for- the death of their eldest son,  Ernest, who was mail clerk on the  train going east that trip.  The catastrophe was duo to Lhe  negligence of the brakeinati on the  westbound, which took the siding at  Chiu to allow the eastbound fco psss  on the main line, leaving the switch  open, the east train crashing into the  standing westbound under quite a  head of Hpeed despite the applying of  the air brakes as soon us the standing  train was sighted.  Parker was the only one fatally  injured in fche wreck, although tho  engine crews were badly hurt, and  some of the others in the mail car aud  express cars badly shaken up. From  tho evidence takon afc the inquest at  Lethbridge gn Monday it was learned  that deceased had just, gone fco bed  for fche nighfc shortly before fcho crash  came.  Ernesfc Edward Parker would havo  been 2-1 yea rs old had he lived until  February l:*t. Ho v.'.-is born at M������u--  leod, Alfca., in 1803, and afc the conclusion of his schooling went to Belleville,  Ont., where he took a commercial  courso in the business college of that  city, and soon after graduating entered the servico of tho postofllco depart,  ment as railway mail clerk, going on  tho Crow line run right from the  start.

But you sec, niy love, how  I am placed. I simply can't bear any  more emotional scenes. I've lived  through a great deal in niy time. I've  worried through a lot of trying times  when Lord Acrise was alive. And I  can't bear any more. I'm not strong  enough. I have to live on the surface  of things now, and enjoy myself. I've  done my best for you in offering to  show- you how to enjoy yourself, too.  If you can't, it's not my fault."  "Well,  all   I'm   asking  is   that   yo;i  should stay another week."  ''Yes. but I can't, I simply can't,  my sweet, one. The fact is. Daphne,  if you must "know the truth, that I  foresee complications. No man will  allow things to go on long as they  are* going on now. There will be au  explosion; there will be scenes; there  will bc all sorts of horrors!" And  Lady Acrise closed her eyes and  | pinched  up   h**r  thin   features  into  a  hon up the sides, and the same lattice  trimming repeated on the upper part  in the form of a yoke, shc looked  surpassingly lovely, but so fragile, so  worn, that hcr aunt uttered a little  scream, and turned impulsively to Sir  Penywern.  "There," she said in a tone of acute  reproach, "if you want an argument  for hcr going away with me, can you  wish  for a  stronger one  than  that!"  "What do you mean?" asked hc in  a hard tone.  Daphne was nol 3*et near enough to  hear what they said, for both were  careful to keep their voices at a low  pitch. Lady Acrise answered with a  sort of fierce  trhmiplv.  "Look at her. Docs she look as  she ought to look? Does she look  well?    Docs  she look happy?"  "It's uot my fault," answered he,  sharply.  Lady Acrise's manner changed at  once, and became apologetic, effusive,  smiiing, artificial."  "My dear Sir Penywern, of course  I didn't mean that.    Forgive me if I  for you, and dear Sir Penywern has  at last let himself be persuaded that  it would bc better-for you to come  away with me for a little whiie."  Sir Penywern, who was standing  very  stiffly,  interrupted  her.  "I beg your pardon. I don't think  I said exactly that. I listened to all  you had to say about Daphne, and  the disastrous effects which have resulted from my want of care."  "Oh, no, no, no, I never said that!  Indeed I never should have dreamed  of suggesting anything so manifestly  absurd."  "I have only to say that, as I told  you just now, Daphne is perfectly at  liberty to do*- as she pleases, to go  away with you, or to stay here���������with  mc. There is no force used with a  wife nowadays, not even the force of  argument���������such as it is," went on, Sir  Penywern in the same hard tones.  "She is her own "mistress, and decides  her OAvn  destiny."

She had always doubted the depths  of" her aunt's effusive affection; but  never before had she realized how  thoroughly and cynically selfish was  the apparently generous and good-  natured woman. It seemed to  Daphne that she was being ground  between two millstones: on the one  hand her aunt with the sweet smile,  and the stony resolution; on the  other her husband, with his openly-  stern looks and hard, penetrating  eyes.  By tacit consent the subject was  dropped by both ladies, and they resumed their former attitude, concerning   themselves  with   trivialities  only  tace as she came up -to them.

Lady Acrise, on the other hand,  was profuse in her entreaties to her  niece to take advantage of her husband's permission, and to go to town  with her, "if only -for a few days,"  to get a change of air.  *' (To Be Continued.)

Fenner    announced his    arrival to  : Daphne, who    grew    red and    white  ��������� when her husband entered the room.  It seemed to her that there was a  change in him.   He was less depressed,  less   reserved,   but   harder,  as   if  strung up to some great resolve.  This, at least, was the  fanciful interpretation which  she put upon his  demeanor    as  shc watched hiiri1 furtively, and saw hcr aunt follow him  out on to the terrace, and stand talking to him earnestly in "the sunshine.  Lady    Acrise    was   bestowing her  sweetest  smiles upon. Sir  Penywern,  bent  on  doing  what  she  considered  the best possible thing for hcr niece  in separating hcr for a time, at least,  from the husband with whom she did  not "get on."    Shc was evidently us-,  ing  hcr  best  efforts  lo  obtain  what  she wanted, and  Daphne, who knew  what   her  aunt's  object  was,^    could  scarcely keep  her attention fixed  on  the commonplaces wliich shc was discussing with her guests of the afternoon.  Presently thc two figures disappeared from thc terrace, and Daphne's anxiety increased to know wtiat  they were saying. She could not but  know that the discussion concerned  herself, and shc felt that much depended upon it.  Thc visitors went away before Sir  Penywern and Lady Acrise returned  to the house; and Daphne, after going out on the terrace to look for  them, had to make apologies for  their absence.  Then when .she war, left alone .-.lie  ran down thc terrace steps, across  thc lawn ?nd into the. flower garden.  It was not until shc had searched  iu all directions that she heard low  ���������voices*,, speaking earnestly, and came  upon her husband and hcr aunt seated on a bench on thc grass walk.

When you shrink from company and would rather be alone you  are losing confidence in yourself, and that can only mean weak nerves.

The alertness and activity I had-  fonnerly possessed were gone.    My digestion was feeble, and sleeplessness was terrible.

It seems that at Gaiiipoii the necessity for digging the soldiers into  shelter was so urgent that everybody  was put to the job, even the General  took a hand on more than one occasion. The weather was bad and the  work hard, and one of the New Zealanders when questioned by General  Birdwood as to how he found things,  ventured to make a mild protest at  the amount of trench digging to be  done. "Well, my dear fellow." said  the General, "I know it's pretty  tough, but it's got to be done, and I'm  hanged if I am going to do it all myself."  Such is his method, and every man  who ever served under him loves him  for his humor and comradeship.  j   strictly British Virtues  j '&' correspondent in the Nation haa  suggested' that while the Germans  I have the intellectual virtues of dihV  (gen&e and system, the British, on the  .other hand, have the higher intellectual virtues of initiative and originality. It rather reminds one of Walter Pater's famous distinction between the "centripetal" Doric genius;  which ordered and systematized  ideas, and the "centrifugal" Ionic genius, which was always flying off at i.  tangent after new ideas. The former  would correspond to the German and  the latter to the British types. If  there is anything in it, we may perhaps explain the British initiative by  the intellectual and social freedom  nurtured by nearly a thousand years  of immunity from invasion.���������Manchester Guardian.   .'������������������'"���������'  Minard's   Liniment   for   sale   everywhere.

The Mayor's doorkeeper  was a good-natured, obliging chap,  and hc could never find it in his heart  to turn thc bore away. Just as sure  as the Mayor* was in the-bore was  sure to be admitted. One day the  Mayor determined to end the persecution.   So he said to his doorkeeper:  "Henry, do you know why Smith  continues to come here so regularly?"  "No, sir; I can't say that* do."  "Well, Henry, I don't mind felling  you in confidence that he's after your  job."  "From that day,'1 says the Mayor,  "I  saw no more of the bore."

But in addition to the facts the air  is wild with report. Once again we  arc told reality in the Balkans will  beggar the invention of playwrights  and novelists, who seek their, themes  in imaginary kings, courts and political conspiracies.  The fact above all others is that  Germany has awakened to realities at  last. Rumania's blow shattered a  fool's paradise. It is the fight for life  on the part of two empires, ar.d chiefly on the part of this formidable people which hasr,no doubt, made every  error .into which pride ... and vanity  could lead -a nation, but still cannot  give up the desperate idea that its  vast military system must somehow  prove invincible, no matter what  forces it has challenged,  clouds, whence all the kingdoms of  the earth lay at the nation's feet, into  a vast camp of internment, is enough  to fire the most sluggish citizen. It  will nerve the arm of Germany, who  in her own eyes is the super-nation;  the chosen people, of the "good old  God"; nay, the spirit that brooding  over the face of the world would  ha*Ve created it anew. Germany is  force incarnated in a race, and therefore forxe ' is right, and Germany  above all peoples. That creed is* at  once a -political tenet and a religious  faith.

If wre were,  we should be unworthy to win. We  would rather magnify our task than  undcr-estimate it. '  Germany's fight for life must necessarily be a targe business. More  than 18 months ago, wdicn seeking to  arouse my own country to the size  of her undertaking, I ventured to say,  and to repeat often afterward, that  Germany was no more deceived about  the issue of the war than was Britain about the cost, and that there  would be a fight to stagger humanity before  Germany went down.  Since the spring of last year that  estimate has proved to be an accur  object of his mission. In a word, it is  the cement of German unity, the secret of German expansion, the mainspring of German enterprise and organization. Destroy that belief, blast  that hope, thrust that goal beyond  the reach of the Teuton, and the vast  structure raised by the combined efforts of generations will collapse.  Kiches, case, domination, will be  snatched from , the grasp that was  closing on them. - And that is the  task which . the Allies will have set  themselves wdien they reject the  coming peace proposals.

The boy's  knees were pulled up almost to his  chin. General Brusiloff, standing in  the middle.of the road, cried "Haiti"  as though the boy had been .a squadron of dragoons. The terrified youngster pulled up short. Then the cores  commander stepped to the side of the  old horse and lengthened first one  stirrup-leather . and then the other,  and put the boy's feet back into the  stirrups. Then, starting him once  more on his way, he commented  whimsically: "They would quote that  as an instance of the Russian oppression of the Poles!" It was. by the  way, one of his griefs that all his efforts had won almost no cordial response from the Poles of Lublin;.they  remained icily aloof, in" spite of his  kindliest overtures. .��������� Charles Johnston, in The Atlantic.

But  by her efforts and those of her^opponents humanity has already been,,  considerably staggered and is quite  certain to be staggered more and  still more by the endof this year's  campaign and the crisis of the next.

Russia's Arctic Port  New Port of Murmati Gives Russia  a Great Advantage       .  One of the great difficulties of the  Allies in the past has been to secure  for Russia ample supplies of munitions. Only two ports were available for the importation of supplies.  One of these, Archangel, is not only  remote from the battlefront, but in  addition is closed by ice during the  winter. The other, Vladivostok,  while usually ice-free, is a long distance from the front.

The Hohenzollerns think of their  house first. That has always been  their tradition. Whatever the kaisers  belated step may do for his country,  it is a shrewd stroke in the interests  of the dynasty. The emperor, who  got rid of Bismarck, would never until now permit any subject to over-,  shadow himself. Why does he seem  at thc eleventh hour to acquire more  humility? Thc subject now placed at  thc head of affairs as the military  dictator and real natibnal leader .of  Germany is summoned to a thankless  task. If he succeeds lustre will be reflected on thc dynasty itself as in the  old way, when Bismarck and Moltke  were thc great managing agents of  the crown. ,   ,  But if Hindenburg fails, .the whole  shows that the enemy is alive to the  tremendous advantages that Russia's  new open port confers on Brusiloff's  advancing armies.  Russia now possesses in the port of  Murman, on the Arctic Ocean, an ice-  free harbor between the White Sea  and the North Cape which will solve  her_ most formidable problem: the  equipment of her new armies and the  continual flow of supplies from foreign workshops. Owing to the" moderating influence of the Gulf Stream,  which is not felt at Archangel, tho  jport of Murman, situated on the northern coast of the Kola Peninsula, is  never closed by ice. Wooden quays  to accommodate three large steamers have been erected, and thc well-  sheltered harbor affords anchorage  for forty large vessels. The railway  linking Murman to Petrograd is nine  Would Furnish Work for Many Returned Soldiers at Low Cost  The members of the Ganadian Automobile Association had a conference  recently with Hon. Robert Rogers,  Minister of Public Works, on the  building of a transcontinental highway from coast to coast. L. B. How-  land, president of the Canadian Automobile Association, TorouiO, and A.  L. Caron, Montreal, president of the  Automobile Club of Canada, urged  upon Mr. Rogers the necessity for  construction of such a road.  Mr. Rogers replied that the plan  had his entire sympathy. He said  that not only would the construction  of a road be a good thing for the  country, but it was a national necessity. To his mind it was the one  outstanding undertaking to take up  after the war. It would^ be the  means of providing work for many  who came back from the war and  wished for some outdoor occupation.  It would also bc the means of enabling the government to hold out  prospects of work to immigrants.  He would, he said, support the  transcontinental highway with all  his power, both in parliament and  before the people. Hc did not think  the construction of the road would  necessarily bc expensive. He said  it would go through the north  country to Winnipeg and for a good  part of the way could follow the railroad tracks. .        ,  Afterwards thc delegation went to  sec Dr. Coulter, Deputy Postmaster-  General. They asked him to do something in connection with thc dangerous way rural mail boxes arc placed  on the highways. Dr. Coulter promised to look into the complaint.  Liege University Is Being Used as  War Stables  One would have imagined that in  the very fitness of things the/army  iri occupation of Belgium would have  drawn a line against .using classical  buildings like the University of Liege  for any other than -*' scholarly purposes.    ������ ���������  But  the  fact   is  that  the  German  general in command of that division  considers   the   kultur  of jtjie   Belgian  on a level with a   horse" stable, and  the wonderful collection of books that  formed the feature of that centre of  learning  may  be,  and* probably     is,  used up as fuel.    No one is allowed  to   enter,  and  the knowledge*of the  desecration of the buildings has been  obtained   through   the   internment   in  German camps of two' great und good  men-, professors of the university. An  eye-witness  of the German  depredations declares: "In the laboratory of  anatomy we had    once   200    soldiers  of the .-57th Regiment    under    Major  Wunderlich,   \vlio    transformed    our  building with an incredible    mass of'  filth. These men were  drunk all the  time, leaving after two davs some 1,-  200 to  1,300 wine bottles'(all'empty  of course), and these were the men,  by the, way, who during the terrible  night bf  the  20th-21st  August,- 1914,  burned the whole Rue de Pitteurs and  part of the Quai des  Percheurs.  Some     months , later,  in  January,  1915, our hospital was taken by    the*  Germans, members of the staff, being  brutally dismissed.  "So the men were no more respected than our buildings, as is further  shown by the story of what happened  to my colleagues, Professor Leon  Fredericq, the world-known physiologist, a brother of the Ghent historian.  Fredcricq's youngest son, a military  surgeon in thc Belgian .Army, was  taken prisoner by the Germans into  Liege, and somehow-managed-to escape. The Germans then topic his  father and sent him   to  gaol, leaving  At the present time most of tiie  Canadian provinces provide instruction in elementary agriculture for  pupils who attend the public schools.  The teachers���������for the most part girls*  ��������� are given a month's training in  some institution, and are then graduated as instructors of the subject.  The course usually covers botany,  entomology, gardening, animal husbandry, field husbandry and nature  study. A nicely engraved certificate  is given at the end of the course.and  the teacher goes home filled with the  happy dignity of having broadened  her sphere of work.  :-. These teachers cannot teach agri?  culture,     cannot  even  make a bluff  at it.   The farmer knows this.    What :  would happen if he went to ask the  local school teacher    who    instructs.  his  children in  "agriculture" . for in*;  formation     regarding     crop rotation  for   a   certain   piece   of   land   on   his  farm?     She would probably turn to  her note book and  read him  some*  thing taken down from a professor's  lecture.     He would grin if he were  good   natured,  if  not  he  would  say  something.  Can you think of another subject  on the curriculum of any institution,  in which you wrould care to have your  child instructed by a teacher of sirni-  lar training?    I  think not.  In Canada we have not made agriculture a high school subject. We  attempt to teach the very elements  of the science, that is all. Should  the boy want further instruction he  must go to college. All farmers'  sons cannot do this. Thc consequence is that serious agricultural  education has not yet touched the  masses of the farming communities,  except through    agricultural journal  ism and societies formed among the  farmers themselves".  In the United States more is being done.

After three-days  they released him, but took his other  son instead and kept him for ten  days more in the Fort de la Chartreuse.  This whole absolutely authentic  story may seem perfectly grotesque  yet at the same time it is perfectly  characteristic of the German military spirit. I tell it here as I am trying to interest the American public  in the fate of Pirenne and Fredericq  to show lhat the non-FremdcuMatt  version of the arrest of these men is  perfectly plausible, as ^ the abovc-  niciiiioiicu fuels make it clear and  because anything can be expected  from the crazy arrogance of the German soldiers."  Apart ii'oin all this, lhe kaiser has  every reason for self-distrust, and  whatever else may be said about Hm-  denburg, he knows his mind.    >  There has been, indeed, a scries of  ghastly blunders, "showing what T  have previously described as the blind  ������ide of German efficiency.

It is five times the siac  of the state of California, fourteen  times that of the stale of Illinois, sixteen times that of thc state of New  York, and ninety times that of the  sratc of Massachusetts.  These three provinces comprise a  land area of 483,000,000 acres. At  least 200,000,000 acres arc good farming land that can bc put under crop,  but less than 25,000,000 acres are actually cultivated at the present time  ���������that is lo say,# only about twelve  per cent, of what is known to be good  is at present utilized. All thc remainder is fine arable land that awaits set-  Coal Mining   Industry an Important  Factor in the West  Probably sixty per cent. of the  coal deposits in thc Dominion of  Canada are to be found in the province of Alberta. Alberta has coal  in every part from the international  boundary  north  to   Lake  Athabasca, \^r^  Government   fam-cK   for   1913   One      T||e p0pi,].lti0��������� ot' t|,ese (jin.e pro-  latest; compiled) showed that AlberU     . {     bout n,uiiOn and three  came  second    among    ������������������"*  " ���������'"'e,  The equipment, all hand-power models, consists; of cream separator^,  combined churn and butter -worker,,  butter printer, ice box, Babcock  tester, acidity test outfit, salting out-'-'  fit, moisture test scale, butter print  scale, cream scale, cream cans and  minor utensils.  The agricultural department, then  iii-its setond year only, was already  one of the-'most active divisions of  Central High school, and the new  equipment was received with such  interest and enthusiasm that in the  1914-1915 school year the embryo  farmers made a total of 2,890 pounds  of the best creamery butter in 170  churnings.  The Student Creamery Company  of the high school is an organization  amon������ the boys of the agricultural  department similar on a small scale  to the most approved type of fanners' co-operative creameries, for the  purpose of obtaining both the manufacturing and the business experience of creamery practice. Thc student members produce the cream  and milk by purchase, and sell to  their creamery, .profits from which  they share in proportion to their respective patronage.  Agriculture advanced enough to  be of practical benefit, cannot be  taught apart from thc farm. Why  should there not be a school farm?  Farming could then be studied as a  science, as an art and as a business.  The cost would not bc great, for  farming is a profitable employment  and the school farm must not only  run itself but must also pay dividends on money invested.  Of course there would bc many  details to arrange, much prejudice  to overcome, in fact much hard  work, for the agricultural educationalist who would undertake thc worlc.  F.lementary education should be  supplemented by secondary education. The high school graduate ol  the future, if hc is lo spend his life  on thc farm, should be tble to turn  to account knowledge obtained at  school. This cannot hc done as our  courses of study now exist. Theory  should give place to practice.  and the worst because prompted by  the infatuated uudcr-cstiinalc of Rus-  smji which Falkcnhayn seems to have  shared with the Austrian, Conrad von  Hoctsfccndorf.
