CRESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1917  No. 51  Creston Couple's  Golden Wedding  Mr. and Mrs. John G. Smith of  Creston are great believers in starting  the new year right. Fifty years ago���������  December 31st, 1886, to be precise���������  they plighted their troth each to other  in holy matrimony, and each and  eyery year that has come and gone,  with its measure of joys and troubles,  has found this popular couple just a  little happier for having taken each  other for better or for worse, for richer  or poorer, in sickness and in health,  in the memorable last day of the last  month of 'ffi.  Surrounded by their four children,  Mrs. T. P. Oliver and Mrs* G. Brewer  of Calgary, Mr. Fred K. and Miss  Bstelle Smith of Creston, as well as  three of their four grandchildren, the  bride and groom of fifty years ago  celebrated their golden wedding at  tneir home just east of town on Monday, being at home to their friends  during the afternoon, and having  many callers to wish them very many  happy returns of the day, with continued good health and happiness.  John G. Smith was born at Morven,  in eastern Ontario, June 20, 1842, and  Miss Mary B. McGuin, now Mrs.  Smith, was born at the same place  two years later, on August 29. They  were married at the same place on  December 31, 1866. For almost thirty  years they continued to live in eastern  Canada, most of the time near Brock-  ville, Ontario. But in 1895 the lure of  the west was too much for him and  that year Mr. and Mrs. Smith with  their four children came into Alberta,  taking up a half-section about  eleven  the boat at Proctor is largely responsible. The west arm froze over on the  28th, about two weeks earlier than  last year.  Capt, and Mrs. McCarthy of the  Landing entertained their Sirdar  friends on Wednesday evening last.  Music, games and refreshments were  enjoyed by all.  School re-opens on Monday. Mrs.  Parker, teacher, who is holidaying -at  Nelson is expected back on Sunday.  Messrs. Tuohey and Dennes were  Creston yisitors on Tuesday on some  repair work. The late arrival of the  westbound these days gives them almost a full half-days time for their  labors at the metropolis.

Paul Of ner, who has been working  at Coleman Alta.. for some time, returned to his home here last week.  Clarence Ogilvie of Nelson spent last  week with friends here, returning on  Sunday.  Nels. Winlaw of Nelson is spending  a few days in Wynndel this week.  Miss Annie Johnson, who spent  Christmas here,- returned to Macleod,  Alta., on Tuesday  Some of the young people took in  the box social at Creston on Friday  night, and all reported a good time.

Although coming west as late as !95  .Mr. Smith was one of the earliest to  tackle farming in that part of Alberta,  and in addition to showing ability in  agricultural pursuits also took a keen  interest in public affairs, especially  those having to dc with education,  tn return for his zeal iu this regard  when the school section in his neighborhood was formed his fellow trustees allowed him the distinction of  giying it a name, which he promptly  did by calling it Glenmore���������after the  eastern public school in which he was  educated.  Although living to some extent, at  least, retired, Mr. and Mrs. Smith are  always ready to help along any good  cause,, and are ever to be found active  in Methodist Church circles particularly. Though both have passed tho al-  otfced span of threescore and ten years  few wouid believe them this far along  in life so well have their kept their  years.

It is expected  the mill will be  built this year.  Postmaster Butterfield, who ��������� has  beeh pretty much undei the weather  for the past two weeks, is again back  on duty. Percy Higmore. who has  been a visitor with E. Butterfield, jr.,  left for his home at Winnifred, Alta.,  on Thursday.  Lieut. Ashley Cooper, who spent-  Christmas here, returned to Bonning-  ton on Tuesday.  Walter Cooper, who has been con-  fiued to the house for at least six  weeks, with au injured knee, is now  able to get. around again nicely.  Learning to Gook  Miss Hayes, who teaches domestic  science in tne Nelson city school, was  a Creston visitor on Tuesday and  Wednesday, when she gave talks and  demonstrations on many lines of  home cooking at the Auditorium,  afternoon and evening sessions being  held each day. The ladies turned out  in full force for these gatherings, tho  attendanoe on Wednesday evening  reaching 70, and the smallest turnout on opening afternoon, when 45  were (present. Miss Hayes appeared  under tho auspices of Creston Women's institute, and her work was  very much much appreciated by nil  who attonded.  Creston band's annual masquerade  ball this year was just a wee bit  greater, grander and more gigantic  than any of its predecessors. While  the *number in costume was little, if  any, larger than a year ago, those not  masking were much more numerous,  while the number there merely as  spectators was very much greater���������  and this despite the fact that the  affair was on Monday night, rather  than the aiways-popuiar Friday evening affair a year ago. A modest  estimate of the turnout is 200 persons,  of whom a dozen were up from Port  Hi!L  In naming Mi*, and Mrs Ray  Crisler, attired as a Sailor and Witch,  as the best waltzing couple, and a-  warding Bert Arrowsmith, who was  perfectly attired as an Indian Chief,  the best gents costume prize, the  judgesgave pretty general satisfaction,  but the crowd's approval was not so  unanimous in the award of the best  ladies costume honor. Undoubtedly  the adjudicators had the time of their  live8 deciding to whon the prize should  go, so numerous were the striking  ladies outfits, but finally Mrs. Herb  Christie Was chosen. Some of the  others in costume were:  Ronald Lidgate. W. Truscott, J.  Boydell, John Broderick, Wm. Johnston, Indians.  Dick Smith,. Ben Embree? Harold  Goodwin. Baseball Players.  Milt Beam, W. B.

The Auditorium floor was in rare  good shape and to the fine music of  the band and orchestra in charge of T.  Goodwin it was well on toward 5 a.m.  before tho final number on the long  programme was reached  MrB. Brewer (Calgary) and Jas.  Cook discharged tbe arduous duties of  jnugec*. The catering for the occasion  was well done by a committee of band  members, a splendid lunch being  soryed, and plenty of it,  ton. There is no possibility of the  Social Club here being reorganized  this winter.  E L. Taylor, a former Alice Siding  rancher, who left for England shortly  after war broke out, has been heard  from, He has already been promoted  to the rank of captain and is at the  front in an artillery corps.  .  School opens again on Monday.  And there will be no letup until the  Easter vacation, which comes early  in April this year.  W. A. McMurtrie expects to finish  his wood cutting contracts here this  week, and will then move out to  Erickson where he has several contracts in sight.  Dick Smith, Tom Midford and Jack  Boydell pulled out for Trail on Tuesday afternoon.  Everyone has been busy around  here the past week���������some hauling  hay, some trying to keep warm, aud  others trying to get well.  Alice Siding,*which furnished most  of the Valley weddings in 1915 is starting the new year right in that direction also. The marriage of Albert-  Stewart to Miss Elsie C. Stinson of  Erickson is announced for Thursday  next at Holy Cross Church, Creston.  We understand the young couple will  live at Canyon City.

The company has about  55 horses sit work now getting in logs,  etc., and with the aid of the cater  pillar are  easily handling 75,000 feet  From such compacative statistics as  are available it would seem as if 1916  has been one of the most satisfactory  all-round years that the Creston Valley has enjoyed in her history. At  least the vital statistics compare more  than favorably with 1915, there being  fewer deaths and more births, while  thejbusiness done at the police court  shows a falling off of almost 50 percent.  For the year past 38 births   were  recorded, as compared with 34 iu 1915.  As to the sexes of the newcomers a  curious fact is to be noted in that in  1916 there were 22 girl babies, while hi  1915   the   boy   youngsters   numbered  exactly 22 also.    There were 12 girl  arriyals in 1915, as against 16 males in  1916,    In  the   deaths,   too,   it is to be  noted that those passing in 1916 were  mostly   all 'along    past   middle   age,  while  in  '15   the  mortality  amongst  the   younger   generation     was   more  pronounced.   Those joining the great  majority during  the year just closed  are :    William McKim,  J. B. Moran,  T. W. Gilpin,  Mrs.  R.  J.   Chambers,  Mrs. Moran. Mrs. Olmsted, Mrs, Wav-  lett   and   George Mead.    Postmaster-  Gibbs, who issues themarriagelicenses  finds that '15 and '16 broke even so far  as matrimonial business was concerned, 8 licenses being supplied each year.  In the weather line the records show  that 1810 came tremendously close to  establishing a quarter-century record  in the matter of snowfall,  the  total  receipts of the beautiful running to  108   iuehes.

Fortunately it  turned oiU to ho it c.i.sc ol nasi-iki-ii  identity for on Saturday afternoon n.  letter arrived from Billy, dated December 7th, foi1 tbe express purpose of  allaying any misgivings if the name  appeared in tbe casualty Hntn.

Miss Teresa Churchill returned this  week from her holiday at Ncluon.  Misses Zalla and Lyda Johnson were  Wednesday visitors with MIhh Bertha  Pease.  with an agent in charge of the.C,P.R.  station any day now. An application  is in for one, and All are hoping A.. R.

McCreath of Creston has been  calling here frequeiitlj', * hauling lumber for the new Wilson house at  Creston.  D. G. Lyon is cutting logs on his  own land and putting them tin skid-  ways. The company will look after  the hauling of them to the mill,  A. E. Hyguns is busy making cedar  poles on the land he recently purchased from the Canyon City Lumber Co.  Grover Kifer is now on the log-sawing  stall' at T. Ross' camp.  Principal Masterton of the Creston  school and Principal King of the Alice  Siding seat of learning, were visitors  here on Friday.  The Watts logs, which have been on  the skidways in the Huscroft school  section for at least Hve years, and recently purchased by J. S Deschamps,  are being sorted out for shipping to  Nelson by a crew of men which came  in the middle of the week.  Even busy Canyon City has timo to  stop and listen to the echo of thoso  Alico Siding wedding bells. The  chivari party should' be ready for  action about the llth.  John Leach, who is in charge of  Camp No, 2 for the Company, is wintering some 10 head of cattle and fully  as many sheep.  About tho finest doer head that has  over been taken In the Valley is now  being mounted by taxidermist W. G.  Wearmouth for G. Hendron of CroN-  ton.  The December report of tho Huscroft  school shows nn ayerage attendance  of 0.88 on an enrollment of 11 scholars.  These made a perfect attendance last  month: Percy and Elizabeth Lyon,  Roy Huscroft, and Walter and James  Leamy.  The drawing for the coin pui^e  which has been attracting attention  at the drugstore*, for the pa*l. three  weelcs, was nnule on Saturday night,  and Principal Masterton with ticket  71 wan tbe lucky winner of the fancy  work.

For a soft fruit country the snmmer  was a bit off color too. In the early  part of July it was a trine too wet,  while along in August when the raspberries and tomatoes were needhiK  moisture the supply of wetness was  light. The hottest day we had, along  in July, saw the mercury up to 84,  while the total rainfall for the year  whm 12.41 inches.  Magistrates Constable,   Craigie and  Watson had but twelve cases to render  judgment in, but what was lacking in  numbers was made  up  in   variety, as  the charges were under eleven different sorts, as  follows:    Assault 2, and  one   each   of theft,   drunk,   keeping  vicious dog,  allowing bull   to run  at  large, cruelty to animals, wounding a  dog,    indecent   exposure,    obtaining  board by fraud,   supplying liquor to  Indians, and failure to observe recognizance.   The Small. Debts Court was  only in operation about three  months  and bad but three eases to adjust.  Capt.

While the kill of doer last  year was the biggest for three or four  seasons, game birds were not as  numerous as usual. Even at Sirdar  and the Landing whore ducks innumerable aro wont, to gather the bags o  the yisitiug hunters were much smaller than usual last yoar.  Although the Creston olliee of the  deputy mining recorder was only opened in September, fcho four months it  was In business wero fairly busy ones,  December soiling great activity in thi*  the bills hereabout-*.

Away     went     hunter  and     hunted  across  the  park, always  to  the east.

Out  through    the  still  gate   of   the   lodge   went   the  man  like  an arrow  before  the  wind.  And  out went   Sir   Penywern after  liim.  A head was thrust out of the lodge  window,  and  a voice  cried.  "Who's that?"  Rut thc baronet made no reply;  for although it might have been  easier to catch his man if he had had  someone to assist him. there was too  much mystery about the whole affair for him to bc anxious for outside help.  Across the open meadows they  went, the hunted man gaining a little  on his  pursuer.  And th.cn, without other incident  than the occasional disappearance  for a few moments of the hunted  man, ihey went on, over fields, along'  lanes, in and out between barns and  hayrick*, until they reached ihe first  dwellings of the  little town.  Now Sir I'cnywern redoubled his  efforts; for if once the man should  gain thc shelter oi lhe town he would  be lost io iiis pursuer ami hit, identity  would  remain   unknown.  Here for the fir-^t time chance favored the hunter. Climbing over the.  wooden palimr uf a long garden the  hunted man fell through the. rotten  wood, aud before he could scramble  to his feci out of the tangle of briar  and broken pnlings in which he. had  fallen, Sir Penywern was upon him,  Id'ildin,*-  him   lo   the   ground.

Prepare for the Worst While Hoping  for the Best  There is unmistakable wisdom in  General Sir Wiiliam Robertson's advice to prepare for the worst while  hoping for the best.    The greatest of        __   au follies is to under estimate one's  now added \ opponents. It is well for us to remember that many fights have been  lost in the last round. The fact that  wc now possess the upper hand and  some even l that tnc encmy is fighting on the defensive, hardly daring to expect anything but defeat, is the greater reason for putting all our strength  the field. Sir William Robertson,  speaking with unchallengeable authority as Chief of thc General Staff,  declares  that  the  army wants more  t men    and that    it wants    them now.  j Very well, it must have them.���������Lou-  j don Express.  of our  share in the. joint victory with a warm  and generous enthusiasm which, we.  can assure them, we appreciate and  return. M. Poincarc, in a message to  King George, speaks of "the brilliant  successes won by thc British Army."  The Echo de Paris offers our glo'ri  ous army the "grateful and he-.-rtful  homage" of France. General Zurlin-  deu declares that France will "never*  forget" our effort; M.

The "Dutr-h Government  propose to drain the Zuyder Zee and  to shut it off b}r a dyke running from  the North Holland coast to the Frisian coast.  The sea, which is very shallow, and  is 70 miles long and from 10 to 45  miles broad, wras in the time of the  Romans covered with forests and  was a royal hunting ground.  In 1170 came the great flood  known in Dutch history as the "All  Saints' Day Flood." The sea swept  over the land, covered thc. forests,  engulfed towns and cities, and  drowned thousands of people. More  floods followed in 1237 and 1250, and  by 1410 the Zuyder Zee had assumed practically its present proportions.  When the sea is drained one of the  show places of Holland will disappear in the Island of Marken. The  fisher folk here all wear the old national costume.  . Most of the houses are constructed  from- thc timbers of old boats, and  many are built on piers, the floors  of the houses being 10 to 15 feet from  lhe ground. The work of draining  the Zee will take 15 years, at an inclusive cost of about S45.000.000.  Minard's Liniment Cures Distemper  "This   story  says.

Telling How to Actually Cure  Common and Painful  Malady  This article is for the   man or woman   who    suffers   from rheumatism  who  wants  to be  cured,  not  merely  relieved���������but ' actually    cured.    Thc  most the rheumatic sufferer can hope  for in rubbing something on the tender, aching joint is a little relief.   No  lotion  or  liniment    ever  did  or  can  makc a cure.    The rheumatic poison  is ^rooted in     the  blood.     Therefore  rheumatism can only be cured when  this  poisonous  acid  i*s  driven  out  of  the blood.    Any.doctor will tell you  this is true.    If you want something.  that will go right to the root of the;  trouble   in  the  blood  take  Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills.     They make new,  rich blood whicli drives out the poisonous acid and cures rheumatism to  stay cured.   The truth of these statements has been proved in thousands  of cases throughout Canada, and the  following cure is a striking instance.  Mr. Hejriry  Smith, St. Jerome.  Que.,  says: "for upwards of a year I was  s victim    of rheumatism    in a most  painful form.    The trouble was located in my legs and for a long time I  was   so  bad   that   I   could  not  walk.  The suffering whicli    I  endured  can  only be imagined by those who have '  been     similarly     afflicted.     Doctors'  treatment did not help mc and then 1  began trying other remedies, but with  no better results.    Finally 1 was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  and   although   I   had   begun   to   lose  faith in medicine 1 finally decided to  give  the  pills  a  trial.       I  am  very  grateful now that I did so, for after  taking eight boxes of  the pills     the  trouble    completely    disappeared.     I  was  free  from  pain  and  could   walk  as well  as ever  I did in my life.     1  have  since   taken   the  pills   occasionally as a precautionary measure, and  I   cannot  speak    too   highly  in  their  X." Williams' Pink Pills cure all  the troubles due to weak, watery  blood or broken down nerves. You  can get these pills through any dealer  in medicine, or by mail postpaid, at  50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co., BiQckvillc, Out.

FRIDAY, JAN.   6  Now that the board of trade hag  about emerged from the financial  wilderness through which it has  been groping ita way for at least  three years, and is within hail of  the promised land of solvency,  where, with a reduced annual fee, a  somewhat larger membership should  ensure, The Review respectfully submits that a competent  committee should be named to  investigate why the powers that be,  either by design or accident, give  the Creeton Valley considerably  less, than her dues.  Offhand there are several instances we might cite in this connection  bat the one we wish to particularly  emphasize is the failure of those in  to authorize s sittin**- of  figures are a correct barometer of  the general assessment of the Valley we fail to see any grounds for  complaint���������either for a lowering of  your own assessment or complaint  as to another citizen who has had  the good luok to get off a little  easier than yourself.  In common with others The  Review's assessment went up this  year���������in the same ratio as others,  as far as we oan learn���������and be it  known we find no more pleasure in  paying taxes than anyone else. So  long, however, as the assessed valuation is well within the selling  price we like to be consistent even  in days of enforced economy such  as these. Geuerally speaking, too,  under such oircumstances it is rather poor business to protest too  much. Assessors are very much  like fruit inspectors; they pay  special and steady attention to  an unreasonable kicker.  We take this opportunity to thank you for your generous  patronage during the year now closing;  To  assure you  that we will appreciate a  continuance of  your trade ;  And   to wish  you   a   new year of Good   Health,   Great  Happiness and   Much   Prosperity.

But  in   1916,   when  the  Valley |in������   generally  Mssessment all round must surelv be  double what it was  in   1912, this  court of revision   is denied, though  for what reason is a bit of a mystery.      We  notice  in   the   Sloean  Distinct sittings of the court are to  be   held   at  four  different   points:  Sandon,   New   Denver,   Silverton  and Kaslo.  All   these   points   are  less than  half  a  dozen   miles  i tax collecting and local seif-govern-  via    an   organized  rural municipality.  There is no need for us to dwell  upon the all-round advantages of  local self-government. Every one  of onr readers has lived under it in  some form or other prior to coming  to Creston���������and would be ashamed  to admit coming from an eastern  point where they were so benighted  or  lacking  in   public  spirit  as to  should  .. x,y  be so thick in  ������ Xfxnx ml.  these courts  Sloean while in Creston Valley if  one wishes to argue an appeal he is  compelled to lose two days time  and spend at least $10 getting to  and from the court at Nelson needs  some explaining.  In the territory commonly  known as the Creston Valley the  government is collecting rates on  an assessment of over a million  dollars. We hold that residents in  such a tax-paying area are suffering a rank injustice under the  present system of holding these  courts of revision in the Nelson  district. John Keen, M.P.P., what  are you going to do about it ?  want   the   government    to   carry  them.  Any community that aspires to  he anything, or get anywhere, or  command public attention has to  be an authority unto itself, and  not dependant ou Victoria as to  what, it shall undertake, and when.  Individually   we  view    with   con-  tfl:i:^*"   ���������I-**-*   nnvniff nti>na   *���������**������������������������ o v������     o������������rf-l   it ���������of-.

Of course it  is unfortunate that in times like  these that assessments should be  raised, but It should not be forgotten tlmt govern men ta, like individuals, suffer from the high cost of  living, an it were, and about the  only way thoy oan recoup them-  ���������u'lve'i in part at any rate���������is by  taxation.  Of   course   Home   new   schemes  might be hatched, or the poll tax,  ������������������to., reverted to in ordor to catch i community  "the othor follow," but  so  far as  <>iit".

Of course  it  may cost  more to  manage our own affairs as a municipality   than   under   the   present  system.    And it will   be wortli it.  It coets more to live married than  single, but we have   never yet met  a benedict who was   sorry  he committed matrimony j    or wanted the  government or some public institution to  keep  his   youngsters.    No  matter how many   he was blessed  with there is  always  room for one  more���������or  two, if  they come  that  way.  Why we, collectively, refuse to  be as progressive and ambitious as  wo are individually, generally  speaking, is a mystery. If we prefer to get along as at present merely for the sake of saving a few dollars in taxes we certainly are tho  finest specimen of the penny wise  and pound foolish species at large,  In commercial life wo hold it true  that a business run by somobody  else is invariably doomed to failure.

Thin in an awful delusion. The  government in none other than tho  this   amount    to     the    provincial  treasury.  If, as so many, readily allege, due  to graft, extras, etc., etc., our public works cost about 30 per cent,  more than they should the Valley  would be away ahead of the game  by doing and financing most of  these directly.  After all it may be that the scant  consideration we get from the authorities in the matter of courts of  courts of revision, etc., is due to  our preference to lean on the pow-  eas that be rather than to stand by  and take care of ourselves. Governments, like the Creator, have a  habit of helping those who help  themselves.  Finally, if the Creston Valley is  like to get anywhere with reclamation and its other ambitious projects we fancy we will make better  progress backed up by the authority of an elected municipal council  rather than by the good offices of a  board of trade only���������excellent and  is is thc latter institution.  local politicians and might be more  economical than the existing method���������if competent foremen are to be  had���������as the road superintendents  in Ymir and Kaslo drew about  $3000 and $2000 respectively in  salary and expenses last year.  This is the first bit of house-  cleaning the Brewster government  has done amongst the army of employees. The press has said little  or nothing of the incident. The  people will stand for better things  in the roads department, but it  will be a sorry, day for Premier  Brewster if he proposes to violate  his "no patronage" pledge in this  direction, aud give the province the  worst of it at the same time.

T ii  *i  * ti  f.  n  *\*>  mmmmmmmmmKn THE CBESTOK  EEVIEW  ueMnu3uiuUte<i  In our issue of November 24th we.  had an article on "The Source of  Religion," by Prof. J. Howard Moore.  The article, apparently, was yery  widely read, and has caused some little  discussion of the whole question. In  his address at the union service in the  Presbyterian Church on Christmas  eye, Rev. W. M. Lees touched on a  couple of the points, raised by Prof.  Moore. His remarks in this connection were as follows:  "I bring you glad tidings of great  joy: unto you is born a Saviour.  Glory to God in tbe highest and on  earth peace among men in whom He  is well pleased."  It is doubtful if men have yet  realised the full significance of those  'words; their message is "Glory to God  for unto you is born a Saviour, man  can now be at peace within himself  because of this expression of God's  goodwill to him." That expression of  the divine goodwill revolutionised  religion, changing its very centre.  x-xxKf   ujotuj'jf x,i i-cugiuu is tut; rcuOIu  of continuous forward-moving change,  of   remarkable growth   and  development akin to and part of the  development or evolution   which  has  taken  place in nature.    A recent article in  < uu* local paper seemed to  regard that  element of change  as   a   reason   for  distrust of religion,  a  reason  why it  should   be   discarded     "having   been  tinkered with and tinkered  with till  ready for   the scrap heap";   howeyer  there is   considerable   difference   between tinkering and growth, patching  up and the change in natural growth  due to adaptation.   That very change  is the clearest sign of life, the natural  adaptation of a liviug organism, the  surviving   of    that    which   "fits  in"  which is the law of all life and growth.  Nowhere do we see that same element  of change more than in the science of  today where theories are being continually remodelb d, even the apparently most settled theory of science���������  the so-called law of gravitation, which  is no law at all but merely a theory  which giyes us temporarily an excellent explanation of the stellar and  planetary motions���������may at anytime  iiSgaier  then only provisional theory which  will give a more complete explanation.  Yes it is a record of change, but  evolutionary change, the change due  to growth.  So conceiving religion one has no  hesitation in granting the correctly  stated premise of the article in  question���������that religion had its origin  in the superstition and wonder of the  savage���������but not the illogical conclusion that it has now its cource in  superstition. Religion, undoubtedly,  did first have its origin in the superstition of the savage, but it was the  religion of the savage not the present-  day educated Christian. Science, too,  which has done so much to revolutionise the thought and life of man,  had its origin in the superstition of  the savage, that superstition was the  savage's science, but it was the science  of the savage, not the 20th. century.

It is  put in the ground beside a kernal of  last year's wheat; soil and climatic  conditions are exactly the same ; one  rots, the other grows. Why? One  has life what ever that may be, the  other has not. There is all tbe  difference    between    inorganic     and  organic, between   the  non-living and  the living.      That life  is  not in  the  chemical   constituents,    nor    in   any  particular combination  of  them; it is  a factor from without, from the higher, the organic realm.    How  came it  there?   The scientist says  "by some  chance  variation   somewht re in   the  development.  . What an empty, yague  explanation; imagine science, the acme  of all that is accurate   and exact talking of such an indefinite, evasive thing  as chance and giving it as the explanation of life.    The Christian says God,  the Creator, of whom Nature i5* work,  an expression, an emanation,  in some  perfectly  natural  way,  by the working   of the   natural,  divine  activity,  imparts life to the inanimate chemical    compounds    and    dead   matter  lives, and living develops and grows.  In tbe analogy place tbe superstitions  of the savage with the dead, inanimate  chemical elements or matter,  and the  religions of Buddha,  Confucius,   the  Greeks and the Jews with the living  matter; the one  might be  styled tbe  "religious chemical  constituents," the  other liviug religion   in various stages  of development.    But there  is all the  ^ttl.X ������A>J-������^.  ������vtfl  ll������r 'no*  changed; man had been the centre, it  had been a human acbeivement, the  emphasis had been on man's thoughts  and actions man pleasing God, all the  old religion could do was give advice,  it was living but lacked soul. But the  good news said we haye iiot to create  the goodwill, love, favor of God, it is  there already, men in.whom he is well-  pleased. Thc centre, of religion was  changed from man to God.  We may try to force the blossoming  of the human character by advice,  rules, threats, promises, efforts to  win the Divine favor, but if it does  come out into blossom the flower will  be dwarfed or stunted, but put that  character in the full sunlight of the  Divine goodwill and it will respond as  naturally and quickly as the flower to  the sunshine. "It is love which makes  the world go round." It is the consciousness of goodwill toward him  from without which makes a man  good-tempered himself.  Thus the good news revolutionised  religion, 'carrying forward its development into a new species, changing the  very centre of religion, giving it a new  dynamic, putting soul into it by revealing the goodwill of God to man.  for Foxes, nfoshrat, Wolves, White Weasel, Mink, L-f-nx, Beaver, jFlsber, and other For Beaters collected In your section  SHIP TODB FURS DIRECT <to"SHOBERT,**the largest  boose in the World dealing exclnstvcly toSOBIH AHSBIC&HBAW fSlS  a ���������feliable-^r^ponsible���������safe Fur House witn an unblemished rep-  atation existing for "mors taas a third o������ a century-;" a Umg successful record of sending Par Sbipsersprompt.SATISFAC-rOR'?

The   contributor,   to   whom   reference has been made, tells ns that "the  human  brain  is &., tissue-  wiiicu   ov-e  hundred million  years   ago  lined the  mouth-roof     of    worms."   There     is  nothing   uew   about that statement,  and  when  correctly' stated   it  is undoubtedly true,   at least as near as  our science can get ns to tbe truth of  the matter.    The real trulh is that the  human brain is a development of the  tissue, which is altogether different to  say it is that tissue.    But in the processes of nature's  evolution  what we  have to pay most attention to are not  the resemblances  between  one stage  and i ts predecessor, bnt tbe "variations.  Here is one of these slight  variations  which has to be noticed; whereas the  tissue   lining the roof-mouth  of  the  worm   secretes   certain    juices,    the  brain develops thought.    It may be a  slight   difference,    but it  keeps   men  from grovelling like worms;  it is the  thought from  the  brain  having such  an origin which today we call science;  with such fruits we do not  need to be  ashamed of the source.    After all it is  not the bruin which thinks;   it is to be  likened  to   a photographic  plate receiving and  recoi ding "perceptions, a  mere appliance utilised   by the  mind,  personality or- whateyer you  like to  call it, which eannot be analysed into  chemical     components    as.    can   the  brain.    It is  that mind   which makes  the    difference    between    the   living  wheat and man.  Examining the higher animals we  may find there much the same instincts and passions that we find in  man, perhaps in different si ages of development; from these instincts and  passions in man haye developed. But  again what we must notice are not  only the resemblances but the variations; lhe animal is given ��������� over entirely to its instincts and passions, it is  entirely controlled by them, it cannot improve, control or eradicate  them. Man may have the same instincts and passions hut he stands in  a different relation  to them, he is not  There are now 70 telephones connected up with the Kaslo "central."

Thc  French general who was with our  Minister for War thought Mr. Lloyd  George was going to eat tlicm, but  his real intention was, it seems, to  plant them, when he got him, so that  his descendants might walk under  Verdun chestnut trees, and never forget the immortal French defence.

With wheat    standing  British   Advances   May   Force   Germans to Move Hangars  Back  Thc great Anglo-French offensive  on thc Somme in northern France  has a direct bearing on future Zeppelin raids on England. This hint  was given.by a British official ia a  position to know.  In thc Anglo-French forces on the]  Somme    drive    a    wider    and deeper]  wedge into the    German line, the en- i  tire line must eventually fall back to j  straighten  itself.     This  would   mean  that the allied aerial  bases in  northern France wc ud also move forward.  Thc natural sequence is that German  military  aud  aviation  bases,  both  in  Belgium  and   rcross    the  Rhine,  become from a strategical and military  point of view more legitimate, objectives   for allied  air   squadrons.   Hitherto, allied air forces have been able  to make,long distance raids, but not  heavy oiies.  Thc great Zeppelin hangars in Belgium, including those now under  construction and those in Germany  from which thc present raiding Zeppelins operate, will become practically useless  to  Germany.  According to expert opinion, it is  not illogical to believe that these  hangars and their contents, under  such conditions, would be a total  loss unless thc Germans moved them  INSURANCE  COMPANY  A N EXCL USt VBL Y CANADIAN COMPANY  ESTABLISHED 1890  Exceisior Policies Are Money Makers  areoni Has New Findings in Wireless j  More Practical and Useful Method of Communication  Marconi, in an address before a  gathering at Rome, which included  thc Duke of Genoa and the elite of  scientific, literary and aristocratic  circles, roused the enthusiasm of his  hearers when he said that witelcss  telegraphy had rendered magnificent  services to Italy and her allies in the  war.

"The United States has hitherto  stood apart in isolation, but isolation  is no longer possible," said Viscount  Bryce. "Every country is now affected, and its safety threatened by  the spirit of anti-democratic aggression. The United States has avoided  entangling alliances. But a league of  peace would be no entangling alliance. It would be a smoothing down  and straightening out of difficulties  that threaten to embroil  the world."  Viscount Bryce declared that questions which have arisen between lhe  United States and Great Britain with .  regard to thc British exercise of bel- !,  ligercnt naval rights "arc happily-  such as can be disposed of hy pacific j  negotiation, and need not affect the!  permanent friendship of peoples at- i  tached lo one another by so many I  ties." |    i  A Work for Boys I  Parents    Should    Encourage    Farm'  Boys to Do Things for  Themselves  The   normal  farm  boy   after   he  is j  ten years ot age begins to dream of  business  adventure and doing  things  for himself.    He will do  some valu-1  able  things  for  himself,  profiting  by'  experience, although the. adventure in I  itself  may be a  hnaucial  failure, yet'  in most, cases    his parents    break in i  upon liim    and spoil  his    adventures  before   lie   has   time   to   realize   their  full     value.     Nature     prompts     the  child to work out his  salvation  with  his own hands, hut parents, as a rule,  think they can direct youthful activities  better  than   Nature  herself.     In  most  cases they ignorantly misdirect  or  totally  kill   the  child's   expanding  ambition    to    do    something    worth  while* in the world.  The sane and wholesome thing for  farm parents lo do when their chil-  j drcit want to develop some home in-  ' dustry ou their own account is lo  1 plan with them and aid them iu every  possible, reasonable way.
