The British Columbia government  hard decided to remove the ban on the  export of logs.  S. T. Black of Nelson, chief constable  for the Kootenay district paid Creston  an official visit this week.  "Geo. Cowan of Bull River paid Creston a flying visit on Monday, returning to Cranbrook the following day.  Creston has the honor of being the  only town of its size in British Columbia to elect a lady member to the  school board.  Friends of P. G, Ebbutt are pleased  to see him around once more enjoying  his usual good health, after a rather  severe siege of malaria fever.  The Ladies Guild of Christ Church  are   having a social at the   home of  Chas.   Moore on Sept. 11.   There wil  be games refreshments and dancing.  The opening ofthe shooting season  brought the. usual rush for gun licenses. Capt. Forrestor issued some sev-  enty-tvro of them Monday'"and"'Tue_������  day.'  Mrs.C. G. Bennett, who has been  visiting her parents at Cranbrook, returned on Saturday, accompanied by  Miss Erickson; who will spend a few  cays i_5fe.  The C P. R. has a new fire guardian  on the tvat through Creston, a Mr.  Thompson. Mr. Piggot,who previously  had the pos:tion. has gone to the front  with the Cranbrook volunteers.  One of the donations to the Creston  contingent which we omitted to mention last week was a couple of boxes  of cigars from \V. Morris the genial  boniface of Sirdar, who.,was in town  fot toe -Hsnd.off.  And stiii the militia authorities  maintain silence as to who will be appointed to the command .of the Cres-  tou corps of the new West Kootenay  regiment, but we are assured there  will be something definite in the matter inside a week.  The Indian Commission will sit at  Creston on Wednesday next Sept. Oth.  Tlrs body was recently created to investigate the conditions on the various  reserves throughout the Dominion.  There aro five commissioners and the  '"-secretary in tho party.  The raise in the price of some lines  of drugs is not'worrying the Creston  " youngsters. According to Druggist  McBean some of the children are hoping the price of castor oil, for instance  will go clean out of sight.  ' Creston housewives will be glad to  hoar the price of sugar may come  down within a fow days. Tho rise in  price is said to bo duo to tho order  made by the British Government prohibiting tho export of raw sugar from  Lhe West Indies. The order has boou  withdrawn and Canadian refiners can  now secure all the raw sugar they require.  Notwithstanding tho fact that sovoral of tho, bigger "fairs have cancelled  their exhibitions for this yoay. on account of tho war scare, ..the. annual  Nolson Fruit Fair will be held this  year tho t-anio iui usual.

The plum harvest in the valley commenced a few davs ago, and the Green  gage, Lombard and Bradshaw varieties are being marketed. This year's  crop -will be at least twenty per cent  lighter than in 1913.

U.S. Investigates  Mats Drainage  ir  .  The drainage of the Kootenay  Mats is receiving considerable attention from, the United States authorities at Washington, and as  promised in Senator Brady's letter,  which wc published last week; no  less an authority than the chief of  drainago investigations of the TJ.S:  Department of Agriculture has  .been sent not only to make a study  of the drainage problem, but also  to evolve plans for bringing the  laiid under cultivation after it has  been drained.  . The good news is contained in a  despatch from Washington, which  we reproduce herewith;. v>  Washington, D.C,, Aug. 27���������At the  urgent request of Senator Brady, the  secretaiy of the interior has written  Premier McBride of British Columbia,  asking him to name an engineer to cooperate with an engineer to be designated by this government with a view  to evolving a comprehensive plan of  draining the Kootenai "\ alley, both in  Idaho and across the* .Canadian line.  Senator Brady and Secretary Lane are  both personal friends of Premier Mc*  B_*id-_v-j*nd-ttt-e-_roi-eful that the premier will be willing to co-operate with  the Interior Department.  Because of the fact that the Kootenai Valley extends across the line it  mnst be drained us a whole, in order  to render it iit-fov-ig-Hcultimil development, and ib therefore becomes necessary for the t.yo governments toco-  operate both i^i the preparation of  plans and in the; construction of drainage works. Already b. H. McCorry,  chief of drainage investigations iu the  Department of Agriculture,, has been  sent to the Kootenai Valley,  ut Sena-  ! tor Brady's request, and, independent  of other'engineers, will make a study  of the drainage problem with a view  to evolving plans for bringing the land  under cultivation after it has been  drained.  The two engineers, to be appointed  later, wiii go over the valley and work  out the engineering features of the  drainage scheme.  Killed on Tract  jn_  The town flag was run up to the top  most peak of the ne*\y pole on Tuesday  in honor of the reported capture of the  German battleship Leipsig by the  Canadian cruiser Rainbow. . The war  office has not yet officially confirmed  the good news.  It was a case of "on again, off again,  gone again" with T. W. Bundy who  was ordered on. duty at the depot here  from Elko on Thursday and who was  recalled to Elko,on Tuesday of this  Week. W. A. Hall is back on the Job  at Creston again.  John Huscroft this week sold fifty-  five acres of tho old homestead to H.  H. Mudie of Medicine Hat. We understand Mv. Mudie intends going into  cattle raising on quite a largo scale.  The property isa good one, some forty  acres of it being improved. R. Walm-  sley put the deal through.  Government agents have rocelved  notico to tho effect that pre-omptors  who have been on the reserve list, and  arc now called out for active service  ami also. i'iioi.o who may wit.ii to volunteer may do so upon notifying the  department and their pro-oinptlons  will be held for them for the period of  ono year.  Tho Oreston waterworks system  was given an overhauling this week  and all the necessary repairs to put It  In good f,hape wero made.

S. Muerling to  act for British Columbia government.  Citizens hope request be seriously considered.  R. M. Reed, President Board Trade.  That the United States authorities directly concerned with the  matter have been pretty thoroughly aroused as to its importancethere  can be no doubt and with a state  election-., campaign impending it is  morally certain some definite announcement, concerning the pi^oject  may he looked for particularly if  our provincial government will  only lend its co-operation.  The boai*d of trade has done good  work but still further good work,  ca- be done by the citizens either  ijTdividually or as a whole petitioning the members for this riding,  both ._-. the provincial. aiid^deral  house, to get busy -with tlielaufchor-  ities at Victoria iu tho niattor.-  ;?- -  Here is certainly ir a rare opportunity for the local member to show  his interest in the welfare of this  part of his constituency, and. if he  is not .aheady on the job the Creston District Conservative Association will be doing him a good; turn  by asking him to give tlio question  his immediate attention.  Latast War News  The first break in the ranks of West  Kootenay's contribution to the first  Canadian-contingent came suddenly-  hardly two hours after Creston's magnificent send off���������and under distressing circumstances, on Friday lost,  when W. L? Reid, aged about 42, was  run over by the westbound passenger  train, a short distance west of Kitchener station.  The body was "rushed to Creston and ,  turned over to Capt. Forrester and  Coroner Henderson, who opened an  inquest here on .Saturday -norning.the  jury being S. A. Speers (foreman), S-  McDoUald, R. Walmsley, Jas'; Compton, John P. Hamilton, H. Leonard.  The coroner arid Capt. Forrester visited the scene of the tragedy that  evening, and the latter, along with W.  Cr-awford (C.P.R. track watchman at  that point), Conductor Jackson, Engineer Brock and Fireman McLean gave  evidence at the inquest.  '������������������' The deceased was employed as a  watchman about three years ago at  the mill at Goat River crossing and  wj-s acquainted with Crawford. It it.  surmised Reid had gone out on the  platform of the rear car to wave y  farewell to Crawford whose shack is  at Mile 59, and shortly after passing  that point "Was jolted off the train.  Beyond being badly stunned and  shaken up internally he was apparently not much the worse for his fall for  Crawford gave evidence that he saw a  man (who turned out to be Reid) passing along the track, while he was'busy  in his shack at the time, somewhat  dusty in. aspect butr making good  headway walking westward.  At about MileOO his dazed condition,  the heat and the exertion proved too  much for Reid and he sank down with  his head on "the rail in a down-grade  curve on the line, where it was impossible for either the engineer or fireman ,  to see him until within fifty feet of  the unfort.una.te,; with. the??re;snjfe-fchat .  his head was severed from hisvbody,  death beiri������ instantaneous*  Had the train been five minutes  later in coming along: the fatality  would have been avoidedas watchman  Crawford on his afternoon trip of inspection had almost reached the fatal  curvoAvhen ho had -to-get oif thc track  to let the train pass. Y  The coroner's jury brought in a verdict of accidental death and the body  was sent on to Grand Forks Saturday  iifternoon. Tho deceased was well-  known there and was buried with  military honors on Wednesday.  The past wook has seen very little  change in the war situation. Tho German troops are still being hurled on  the British and French defenses in  Belgium and Lorraine, with little or  no success, In fact iu Lorraine the  Fronch army has resumed tho offensive and gained ground, while In Belgium the unerring riflo fire and cavalry charges of the English aro having  a quieting effect on the enomy.

Tho Servians are preparing to invade  Austria, as tho Austrian forces have  apparently boon recalled from Servia,  not having confronted the Servians  for several days.  On Friday tlio British fleet sunk two  German cvulsovs and two Gorman tor-  pedo bo.it de'-ln-yei's, and .i I hied emi-  Hov was set afire and left, sinlclng after  a raid on tho harbor of Heligoland.

The blood is at work day  and night to maintain the health, and  anv lack ot strength or purity id the  blood is a weakness in the defenea  against disease. Anaemia is the doctor's name for lack of blood. There  may be an actual loss In the quantity  of the blood, or oue or more of its constituents may be lacking. Its truest  symptom is pallor. Anaemia is par-  ticularlv common in youug girls. It Is  not. however, c.ontinod to them nloue,  for it is this sumo lack of blood that  prevents full recovery after hi grippe,  fevers, malaria aud operations, lt is  also present in old age and In persons  who havo been under; unusual mental  or physical strain. It you aro auffor-  ing from this trouble take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. They  make euro, new blood with every dose  and this new blood means health and  strength. Thousands havo proved the  truth of these statements, among  them Mrs. Minnio Barteaux, Annapolis, N.S.. who says*. "Following the  birth of my child I was a complete  wreck. I felt and looked as if I did  not have a drop of blood in rny body.  My heart would palpitate so violently  that I could not walk upstairs without  being completely exhausted. Night after night 1 would have to sit up in  bed to get my breath. I had no appetite and suffered from severe headaches. I was taking doctor's medicine  all the time and naturally felt, very  much discouraged. While in this deplorable . condition my husband  brought me home a couple of boxes  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and before  they were gone I couid feel some improvement. I gladly continued *heir use  until I had taken, I think, ten boxes,  when I was completely cured, aud I  never was so well in my life as E have  been since."  Dr. Williams* Pink Pillc are sold by  all dealers in medicine or will he sent  by mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes  for ������2.50 by writing The Dr. Williams'  Medicine Co.. Brockville, Ont.  Watch  the  Clock  If the passion for .effic.__.cy.'accomplishes nothing more it will���������-Infleed, it  has already���������urset one of the most  sacred tenets tl.at altrul_t.lc employers ever put Into the constitution and  bylaws for the observance of employees. That tenet is, don't watcl.  the clock. It. wr.r. hoped, of course,  that if . .upioyees could bo made to  forget the clock they might also forget to go home at tho expiration of  the time' for which they were paid.  Efficiency now makes the revolutionary demand that you should never  take your eyes from the clock. To be  a topnotchor in ol'flclemy you must  go even further. You must get a stop,  watch with sp'it second hands and  make sure that each minutest division of time has assigned to it a precise aud particular action, being or  state. Watch the clock, my boy���������  watch the clock if you want to make  a success in this world.���������Ellis O.  Jones in Lippincott's.  Good  Advice  Don't live beyond your Income, no  matter how small it is.  Don't *ive up to your income. Save  at least 10 per cent, of it every month  and if possible 40 par cent.  Don't let monoy lie idle. It is the  fractions that count. Put .every bit of  surplus in a savings bank quickly,  and every time $100 accumulates invest it.

Thc Duke and tl.e Artist  In "Random Recollections" is this  story of the Duke of Connaught. The  incident happened at Windsor Castle.  The duke was criticising a water color done by R. Caton Woodville, representing a drummer in the guards:  "Look here, Mr. Woodville," he said,  "you have made a mistake in the  mounting of the braiding on this drummer's coat; the fringe on the side of  the chest ought to run in this direction," indicating the line. "I am certain of it, for as a boy I wore the  uniform, hut I will show you what I  mean," and, turn-ins to Mo A.r>.c.,  he asked Uim to have the bugler of  the castle guard sent up. The bugler  came, and the duke, turning toward  liim, said: "Now, Mr. Woodville, I will  show you what I mean." $.nd the:-, as  he looked critically at the hoy's uniform, he exclaimed: "By Jove, Mr.  Woodville, you are right, after all."  tHB NEW FRENCH REMEDY.

All the week the French  had been in contact  with  flying columns of the army of the -Meuse as far  off as Gembloux.    It seems  probable  that the battU of Dinant which has  been forgotten in the stress of later  events,  although   It   seemed   to  be  a  considerable victory, from which the  French artillery in particular emerged with honor, really marked the end  of an attempt to relieve and  occupy  Namur.    However that may be, they  have since been slowly retiring toward  the frontier, and this movement, evidently   prudential,   became     decisive  when  the v German    troops,    thrown  southwardY through   Brussels,  arrived  upon the scene.  Early On Friday morning, a column  of. Uhlans broke into Charleroi. They  were made prisoners, but by Saturday  all the northern approaches to Mons  and Charleroi were swarming with  bodies of the invaders and serious  fighting had begun.  The French artillery to the south of  the town checked the first advance  and put the German guns out of action. Four French mitrialleyses are  said to have kept at bay-for three  hours 2,000 men coming in by the  northern roads. Infantry regiments  were brought up, but not in sufficient  numbers to make pursuit possible.  Later in the day reinforcemnts,  especially in Zouaves, arrived. Some  of them were engaged in disposing of  German incendiaries in the town,  while others crossing the Sambre at  Thuin, pursued the enemy as far as  Fontaine l'Eveque?  Meanwhile Mons had been occupied  by   the   British   expeditionary   force,  ahd  on  Saturday morning one could  see    Air. Thomas Atkins, stripped to  the waist and taking his morning tub.  During the morning a German armored aeroplane flew over  .he town.    A  French aviator rose and pursued the  plane?  and  he is  believed  to    have  brought it down near.the frontier. .  All   through   Saturday    night    the  British  artillery,    well    set  on' hills  . surrounding Mons, was engaged without interval between Saturday morning  and   Sunday . night.   The' British  force is said to   have   sustained and  victoriously repelled six mass attacks  by different bodies of German troops.  That 2,000 out of perhaps 10,000 men  should have been put hors de combat  during these engagements to say nothing of  the  greater  losses  of Ger-  mann, .spca_.o sufficiency.* o_- .(.uci-r des-v  perate character:        Y*.

It seemed that the  British on their side   are' more than  holding   their own,   but although reinforcements vrero continually brought  forward the position in   Charleroi on  Sunday evening was much more seri-  oust   Charge after   charge was made  by first one side and then the other,  and  the  French  and    German  artillery kept up an    unceasing bombardment. "*  By then the Germans had evidently  fired a large part of the buildings and  the fact that the place was no longer  habitable even if it could have been  held, may havo been one of tho reasons for tho desire to effect a general  retirement on the French frontier.  WEEKLY MARKET REPORT  minion I inaugurated the Canadian  Patriotic fund, the object of which  is to provide for the needs of the  wives, families and dependent relatives of those who go to the front to  fight the battles of Great Britain and  her allies. Unless generous-minded  citizens come to their aid, there will  be, during the coming winter? much  hardship in many families owing to  the absence of the bread-winter. I  have the greatest confidence in those  that are in a position to give, need  but the opportunity of doing so, and  that the response will be widespread  and generous.  During the past few days the Canadian Patriotic fund has been duly  organised, a strong executive, representing the whole Dominion, has been  appointed, and a central bureau established at Ottawa.  I sincerely ho? e that in every city  and town, throughout the .Dominion,  branches of this organization may be  formed, full' particulars of which can  be had by addressing the honorary  secretary,. Mr. H. B. Ames, MP., Ottawa. By coordinating and harmonizing benevolent efforts in this way,  the danger.- of overlapping on the one  hand or neglecting deserving . com-1  munities on the other hand, may be  met and overcome.  I am convinced that all. Canadian  hearts will go cut to their bra-xe fellow.citizens who have gone to the  front. A prompt and hearty response  to this appeal will put all anxiety .6  rest about those near, and dear to  them and will afford to those who cannot go an opportunity of doing their  duty to Canada and the empire.

General Benson, who was botn  at St. Catharine's? Ont., has been here  about-.three weeks, looking over the  ground, with a view of determining  where the commission shall begin.buy-  ing operations.  The officers, who arrived are Col.  G.

At the same time Great Britain  notified    all exporting countries that  the   seas  were   clear  of  all    hostile  naval vessels, and  on  such  a favorable  change in  conditions    a    large  movement  across  the  Atlantic    was  started and resulted in the American  ti j and Canadian shipments of wheat and  flour last wreek reaching the large total of 10,778,000 bushels. With the export of wheat and flour fairly resumed under comparatively favorable conditions, the demand has increased, and  prices   have  gradually   advanced     so  that at close of today's markets in the  United States and Winnipeg, there is  shown-advances of Sc to 19c per bushel over the closing prices a week ago..  We cannot, of course, expect that the  grain trade will go right ahead as it  does   under  ordinary   conditions,   the  exchange market, though improved, is  still limited, and financial business is  bound to be nervous and cautious and  will be quickly .affected by incidents  liable to happen in the course of the  war.    so  long,  however,    as    Great  Britain and France can keep the seas  safe for    commercial    navigation,    a  stream of grain    will    flow    towards  Western Europe, which will cause the  kind of demand that will keep prices  high.    In  the  United   States  and  in  Canada financial facilities -for handling the grain crops in the interior���������  are quite satisfactory, and ample for  Point, twenty -miles north of Seattle.

Prices have advanced owing   to. the  war, hut we know now that-they wduld  have     advanced   independent  of  the  war.     This year's world's wheat crop  is at least 300,000,000    bushels    less  than last year's, owing to the shortage  through  unfavorable weather In  Russia, Roumania, Hungary.

He meekly replied  to this critic, quoting from Beut. vi, 4,  5; Lev. xix, 18, the summary of the  Ten Commandments, which His own  hand had written twice on the tables  of stone, that the righteousness "whiea  is required of us is to love the Lord  our God with all our heart, soul, mind,  and strength and our neighbor as ourselves, adding, according to Matt, xxii,  40, "On these two commandments  hang, all the law and the prophets."  The scribe confessed that He had answered well and said that to do this  was more than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices, to which Jesus replied, "Thou are not far from the  j kingdom of God."  1 The scribe saw more clearly than  most of his fellows that God looked  for a right heart rather than - anything merely outward. He understood  the words of Isa. i, 10-15, and all simi-  lrr words concerning the abomination  that Israel's sacrifies were tb the outward, without a thought of the forgiveness of their sins or their need of  it: In the first sacrifice ever seen on  earth man gave God nothing, had no  hand in. it at all. The Lord Himself  did all and provided freely the redemption clothing that man needed  (Gen. iii, 21).  The law of God, which is so holy  and just and good that = man cannot  keep it and which has" been kept pei**  fectly Only by Jeisus Christ, who is the  true ark of the covenant anl the mercy  seat, is always, intended* to lead us to  Christ,, who is the end of the law for  righteousness to every one that believ-  eth (Rom. x, 3, 4; xiii,'10). The great  and all important question Is not what  we should do or should not do, what  we know or do not know, but what is  Jesus Christ to us, what think ye of  Christ (Matt, xxii, 42): To these Jews  who expected a Messiah, a son of  David, but who did not understand  the prophecies concerning Him and-  that He was to be truly' a man and  yet truly God In one person, the question as to how the Messiah could be  David's son and also David's Lord was  what might be called a poser for  them.  According to Matt, xxll, 42, He asked them, "What think ye of Christ?"  .or the Messiah). "Whose son is He?"  They-replied,    "The    Son of David."  ..Then came the difficult question for  tie.  Eight of the lost were members of  the crew, and two passengers. The  dead among the crew are:  Captain Z? S. Moor^, l'hird Officer  L. Gocams, First Wireless Operator W.  E. Ricker. Stewardess Miss M. Campbell, Seaman C. Marquette, Watchman  A. Sater, Chief Engineer Allan J.  Noon, Mess Boy J. B. Williams.  When the collision took place the  oil tank exploded and J. Byrne, a passenger, was covered with flames. He  was rescued alive and died just as the  Princess Victoria arrived at Seattle.  -The name of the other lost passenger  is not yet obtainable.

"It is impossible to  take tli em into consideration in detail. What will have to be-done is to-  take a broad general survey. On the  cases where extortionate prices require action these cases would have  to be taken up and dealt with."  It is understood as highly probable  that the government will appoint  commissioners to consider the course  of prices in various districts, with  power to deal with flagrant cases.

In   John  xvi,   28,   He  said,  "T  came forth from the Father and am  come Into the world."    As Mlmpriss  says In his harmony, the question cav  only be answered aright as recognizing the fact,   that    Christ proceeded  forth and came from    Ills Father In  heaven,   and   thus   Is   David's Lord,  while, as being man, He was "of the  house and llneago of David" and sa  was David's son.

It would stimulate industry and  it would mean employment for  more if Canadian men and women  would insist upon everything being  Canadian-made goods when  ing purchases.  Creston's first contribution to  the British army now fighting for  .. great Imperial cause on the historic battle grounds of Europe,  received a fitting send-off on Friday  last.  These volunteers have the honor  of being placed in the van of the  forces which will How from the  outermost post of Empire to the  defence of its heart and centre, the  old home in which the race was  cradled.  Great Britain has been involved  in many wars, but never in one  mors clearly based upon th������ sacred  principles of right and justice and  humanity than this one.  The mission of the men from the  Kootexiays is to uphold right as  against might, to assist in putting  down tyranny and widening the  bounds of human freedom.

The send-oil' was worthy of Ores- j  ton.    That our  gallant   half-doztn j  citizens   will  each   and   all  acquit I  themselves  in   the    day  of battle  ui a manner worthy of British  diers no one who knows   them will  doubt for a moment.  In saying good-bye to this delegation we should not consider our  contribution to the Empire's cause  complete. There will likely be a  second and possibly a third call for  volunteers for service abroad, aud  when that call comes  tho  niother-  The minister of finance announces that $68,000,000 over and above  the estimated revenue for the current year will be required to meet  the increased expenditure occasioned by the war.  This money will be raised partially by increased customs and  excise duties, particularly on coffee,  sugar, liquors and tobacco. The  tariff is advanced on other items,  but the above-mentioned are the  ones particularly affected.  The government has already  borrowed $25,000,000 by the issue  of treasury notes, whieh leaves a  balance of $43,000,000 to be raised.  Am additional tax on sugar, particularly at this sea-son when it is  being used in such large quantities  for preserving purposes, will seem  rather a hardship. Outside of this,  however, there is nothing in the  minister's programme to find fault  with.  In  Canada  there   are  few of u^*  who  have  ever  had  any personal  experience    with   war   conditions.  j This special tax on  sugar will give  I us  an   introductory taste  and, in-  ^ ~ i stead   of  finding  fault with it, we  w    \ might better employ our time pray-  S ing that nothing worse   in the way  j of   personal   hardship   may   come  ' upon us.  < A comparison of our own case  } with that of unoffending Belgium  | would help a lot at the moment.  !

Within three  weeks it is estimated that some 20  per cent, of these vessels have been  captured.  If defeated, she will have to pay  an enormous indemnity, one that  will burden her industries for a  generation. Her taxes will have  to be so increased that her people  will seek to get out of the country  as though it were a plague.  She will lose some, at least, of  her over-seas possessions. If her  navy is still afloat she will- have  to surrender it to the victors. She  will lose Alsace and Lorraine and  possibly East Prussia, which will  be given to Poland.

Use Canadian Goods  No one will deny that the war  will disturb trade, remove breadwinners from the homes, pile up  private and public debts, and generally mitigate tho prosperity of tho  recent past.  It will be prt.deht to eschew luxury, to avoid over-production, and  to provide means for helping the  specially unfortunate. Having said  this we have said it all.  The sun will shine, the harvest  will ripen, all the staple commodities will have to be produced and  there should be just as much food  and money in Canada next February as there vvas last February.

Don't be like the sick man who  heard of the curative properties of the  waters of Carlsbad and went there to  take them. After he arrived lie consulted a physician who carefully diagnosed his case and then told him that  his particular "ailment would respond  better to the waters of a certain spring  in America. "Which spring?" asked  the patient. "One of the springs in  Saratoga," replied the doctor. "That's  certainly tough," said the sufferer. "1  live in Albany."  If you're made of the right stuff  you'll find plenty of room to create  something for yourself in the job  vou've got.

They say that opportunity knocks  once at every man's door. 1 dont  know the name of the scientist who  managed to get such a line line on  the habits of opportunity, but if opportunity does announce itself the  chances are that it misses many a  door, and in"some cases when it does  knock I presume "there's nobody at  home."  My impression is that opportunity  ��������� as a rule doesn't knock at all���������or very  r.u-ely. Opportunity consists of thinking, doing, having plenty of patience  and perseverenee, possessing the ability to size up- a situation and having  the nerve and willingness to take advantage of it.���������Maurice Switzer in  Leslie's.  MIND AND  HEALTH  the  Physical    Conditions    Often    at  Mercy of  Mental  Attitudes  A -scientist writes: "A woman fancied she had swallowed a frog and  was rapidly sinking.

A tiny frog  was caught and put into a tube with  which they were attempting to wash  out her stomach. When the frog was  thrown out of the tube the girl expressed relief and said she hoped they  were satisfied her complaints had a  real foundation. In a short time she  was restored to health. This is only  one of the instances in which the mind  has affected the physical condition.  '"No one doubts that persons have  been frightened to death, and ridicule  in statements of this kind should end.  The influence of the mind is a subject  which calls for investigation and  study.

Francis E. Clark, D.L., LL.D., founder  of the Christian Endeavor Society and  president of the World's Christian Endeavor Union.       ���������.,  Thirty-throe years ago Dr. Clark  was pastor of the -Will is ton Congregational church of Portland, Maine. He  was then a young man just fresh from  college and seminary. Wllliston church  was a "typical Now England church,  with all of the problems and difficulties  that thpse churches had to meet.  ln the winter of 1880-1881 a series  of special evangelistic services in the  church had led a groat many young  people into church membership. This  wise young pastor realized that if  those young people were to be held for  tho church they.must be trained for  service, they must have something to  do, and they must be -shown how to  do it. He called his young people together^" and on February 2, 1881, the  first christian Endeavor Society was  formed, the first Christian Endeavor  pledge was signed, and the following  Sunday tlie first Christian Endeavor  prayer meeting was held.  From that small beginning in Portland the society has spread and  grown, until today there are more  than i 80,000 Christian Endeavor societies in the world, with mora than 4,-  000.000 members.  There are Christian Endeavor societies in every country of the world,  and each week meetings are conducted in more than eighty different languages ; thc literature of the society  has been printed in as many tongues.

For instance,  every subject of the king has an insurable  interest  in  the  king's    life,  and may insure him.    A creditor can  legally insure the life of. a debtor for  the  amount  of  the  debt,   and,  even  when  the debt is paid,  the  creditor  may lawfully continue the insurance.  An employer of labor can insure the  lives of his workers, the insurable interest, which alone makes the policies  legal, being that he is liable for fatal  injuries received in the course of their  work.    Mere relationship    does    not  create an insurable interest. Husbands  and wives can insure each other, and  a child can  insure its father;   but a  brother cannot, generally speaking, insure his brothers and sisters.

When daddy stands at the  plate a certain small boy finds it difficult to observe due decorum as he  passes in to worship. In fact, he  shows a desire to take his parent's  hand and itand at the receipt of collection too. On Sunday, as I sat listening to the chink of the coin 1n the  "plate" in the vestibule.

When the Boers advanced on Lady-

Melton Prior was one of the twenty
newspaper correspondents who threw
in their lot with the English army instead of making the hurried retreat
that was still possible. In his book,
"Campaigns of a War Correspondent,"
lie tells many interesting incident of
the siege.
The enemy succeeded in placing
thirty-two guns on the heights above
the town and kept up such an incessant fire that the troops and civilians
were soon engaged in digging bomb
proof shelters. In a short time they
learned to distinguish the different
Boer guns by their sound and gave
them amusing names. Three of the
large ones they called "Long Tom,"

may suppose, was looked upon as a
heast of a gun.    7
In spite of the havoc that the cannon worked, the soldiers soon grew
accustomed to the shelling. One day
the Second Gordon Highlanders were
playing football, when a shell plumped in among them. Fortunately, no
one was hit, and they went on playing.
The Boers were so interested, apparently, that they gave up firing and
actually sat on the edge of the hills,
watching the game. Then, when it
was all over, the firing started fresh.
But this was not the only courtesy
the enemy showed. On Christmas day
they saluted the happy morn by salvos
of shells. The first two that fell into
the camps of the carabineers and the
Imperial Light horse did not burst.
When the shells were picked up it was
found that wooden plugs had been inserted in place of the fuses, and inside the shells were plum puddings.
On the outside were the owrds, "With

The student held up his right arm,

there arose from the class such a
terrific storm of hisses as one per

Little and lean, he stood at the altar
beside a tall and robust bride of 180
pounds or more. The ceremony proceeded regularly until in the bride's
reply the words "to love, honor and
obey" were pronounced.
At" this juncture Bridegroom Calhoun Clay held up his right hand. A
pause ensued. In the silence Calhoun
said:

Liver Pills are constantly kept at
hand, because they quickly awaken
the action of liver, kidneys and bowels, and cure the most common ills
of life.
Mrs. Thos. Smith, Jamestown, Ont.,
writes: "Dr. Chase is no stranger in
our home, for we have two ot his
Receipt Books in the hou��e. My
father and my husband's father each
had one, and I have been familiar
with it ever since I can remember. It
was only natural that we should use
the Kidney-Liver pills, and we found
them so satisfactory in regulating the
digestive system and curing the common ills of life that we always keep
them on hand. Many a time these
pills have saved me much suffering
and prevented serious disease. We
also keep the Ointment in the house
all the time."

No Rest With Asthma.-���Asthma usually attacks at night, the one time
when rest is needed most. Hence the
loss of strength, the nervous debility,
the loss of flesh and other evils which
must be expected unless relief is secured. Fortunately relief is possible.
Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy
has proved its merit through years of
service. A trial will surely convince
you.
This reminds me of a grate that I
used to sit?in front of years ago."
"I can well imagine how you enjoyed, those evenings," she responded
hopefully, "open fires give one such a
sense of home." But he went on talking of drafts and heat and ashes and
the hygienic condition of a room ven-
tilted by a fireplace.
���T have never known a, grate," h��
continued, "like the one in the homo
of the girl where I used to go so\of-
ten."
A long silence followed, tbe crackling of the fire the only sound in tha
room. It was broken at last by hira
in a voice that had echoes of a dear
memory in its tones. "You cannot
imagine how I loved that���grate!"���

How to Pack Eggs
Now while eggs are cheap is the
I time to salt them down for use next
winter, when they will be thirty-five
to fifty cents a dozen. Give each egg
a coating of lard and pack in jars
of salt, small end down. Be surs
the eggs are fresh. The salt should
be rather fine, and the eggs should
not touch each other.
In the Depths of the Sea
The quantity of light emitted by
many minute deep sea animals is so
great as to supply over definite areas
of the sea bottom a sufficient illumination to render visible the colors of
the animals themselves. Some cepha-
lopods are furnished with apparatus
which reflects the light from their
phosphorescent bodies upon the sea
bottom over which they float. This
reflecting apparatus is spoken of as
'���an efficient bullseye lantern for uso
in hunting through the abysmal darkness."

Abelard and Heloise
Heloise was noted as much for her
intellectual ability as for her personal
beauty. She was familiar with the literature of four or five languages���Italian, French, Greetc, Latin and Hebrew.
Her knowledge was remarkable, lier
conversational powers were brilliant
It was her bright mind and varied
learning that first attracted the attention of Abelard. Abelard died in 1142.
Heloise in 1164. First buried at St.
Marcel, Abelard's remains were shifted several times, but finally reached
the well known tomb at Pere la
Chaise, wherein also rest the ashes of
Ilelolse.

They  were accompanied as far as Ci"������ston  by the Misses Olga Wigen, Alice Carr  and Florence Bathie.  A large crowd from ail round the  district congregated at the depot on  Friday to give the first Canadian contingent of volunteers a good cheer and  wish them Godspeed.  All former records of tomatoe shipments were broken on Tuesday when  the Co-operative fruit growers shipped  295'cases of ripe tomatoes, all except  5 being grown by Carl Wigen.  } Duok and grouse hunting opened  Tuesday and although onr local sports  were out all day the biggest catch reported was three grouse. We suppose  our sportsmen had in mind that they  must not have more than 12 at one  time and so did not shoot very carefully.  On Friday night last a large crowd  en.ioyed oue of the best dances ever  held in Duck Creek. The floor was  kept comfortably full all the time, at  midnight a m.ist enjoyable supper was  served by tlie ladies which showed  they were past masters in the culinary  art.    After supper dancing was resum-  itiated by his father, the late Major  Howard, who did considerable campaigning in India.

L_.uiont from the board, aroused  more tiian the usual interest on such  occasions, and the people's choice for  the honor was Mrs. JB. Maiiendaine,  who had a majority of one over R. S.  Bevan, and a lead of seventeen overT.  M. Edmondson, the poll showing Mrs.  Maiiendaine 30, Mr. Be^aii 29, and Mr.  Edmondson 13.  Proceedings were opened by Chairman Dow of the school board, who explained the purpose of the meeting.  There was considerable disappointment among'those present that no opportunity was given to discuss school  affairs, but Mr. Dow insisted that the  gathering wus simply to iioininate.and  if necessary elect by ballot a trustee to  iill the vacancy, and the meeting forthwith chose Rev. F. L. Carpenter to  preside over nomination proceedings  and named Mrs. Crompton returning  officer, with W. P. totark and Rev.  Mr. Carpenter to officiate aa poll  clerks.  Mrs. Maiiendaine was nominated by  D. Learmouth and F. Hurry; Mr.  Bevan by C. O.^Itodgers and .Talkies  Compton ; Mr. Edmondson by Ed.  Lupton and Rev. F. L. Carpenter.  The election of Mrs. Maiiendaine  gives every satisfaction to the great  (ilurjoi-iu^ ui 'vita   xixiiviiiKyaia.      ouu ������i<_������  a considerable acquaintance with  school aifairs particularly from the  teaoher standpoint and has also had a  business training that adds consider,  rblo to her other qualifications for tho  position to which she has boon elected.  There is somo feeling in town thut a  woman trustee Ih exactly what is  wanted on Creston's school managing  board at the present time. In view of  all these circumstances there is every  reason to believe tho result of Saturday's voting w_u. in the interests of  Creston's school affairs.  Berlin autoists are said to have their  cars decorated with such signs as  "William, Emperor of Europe," "William, King of Russia,", and "On to  Paris."  "We are at war with Germany and  by the law, so long as this state of  war exists, no German firm has any  status in a Canadian court," said Judge  Morson at Toronto, in refusing to give  judgment in a case whore a German j  firm sued a Canadian firm for the payment for dress goods.    v  The shooting season. for prairie  chickens is the month of September.
