A preliminary canvass of the situation by  Principal Masterton shows there are  20 pupils who **?������!!   t^ke the course,  and  it  ii   expected  that  when   the  schools at other points iu the Valley  are heard from the full quota of 24  pupils will he available,  thus ensuring  two minimum classes.   These will be  handled by haying one class in the  morning and the other in  the afternoon, thus enabling scholars to take  the work with ������loss of but half a day  from school during five of. the six days  the instruction is given.   The arrangement is for the packing class at Creston to: start on-;February 12th. and  continue for the balance of the week.  .  The $8500 insurance policy   on the  school expires    on    February ��������� 3rd.  Hitherto, this insurance was carried  with   a    Nelson    firm  of   insurance,  agents, but it was decided to renew it  locally and it wiii be divided equally  between  Messrs; Guy Constable and  G.

"We are ail quite amused by this  peace talk by Germany. She claims  to have won everything. But if this  is correct why does she want peace? I  think these peace notes are but indi-  indicatipns of her weakness.  "In the matter of prices ifc would  seem as it Creston was -about as bad as  France when it comes to buying eatables. Sometimes when we get back  from the line far enough we buy some  extra butter, coffee, eggs, etc. Butter  is about 75 ceiitg per pound, eggs 7  cents each- coffee^BO cents a ^ound and  other things, in proportion. Of course  we get plenty tb eat in army-rations  but we buy something extra for a  change of diet when we have a chance.  If we move 15 or 18 miles we have fco  walk. Now that I am going to an 18-  pound battery I shall have two horses  of my own so things will be different  ���������and I am hoping to be back in Creston for the duck hunting in 1917.  Give my very kindest regards to all  the friends."  Enclosed with the letter is a postal-  size photo of Lieut. Callander and the  members of the battery. While ihe  fighting has doubtless been most  strennous and the feeding not of the  very best Frank still wears his sunny  Jim- smile as natural as ever and if  her really has parted company with 15  pounds averduppis he looks none.the  worse for it.  Sirdi  Rev. J. S. Mahood of Queen's Bay  was here on Tuesday and conducted  Church of England service in the  schoolhouse that evening.  The west arm is again frozen over  and the train service between Proctor!  and Nelson was restored again early  this week. In consequence the east-  bound train is half an hour late reaching here these days.  Messrs. Tuohey and Dennes were  at Creston on Wednesday doing, some  repairs on a car of ore that was set  out there in bad order.  If persistent rumors eventuate Sirdar will be losing a couple of its prominent citizens shortly, said gentlemen having about decided to offer for  overseas, service with the railway construction units now forming.

Stinson of Eriokson, with Mr.  Albert J. Stewart of Alice Siding, in  the presence of quite a large company  of friends of both the bride and groom.  The   bride's  costume  was  of  white  satin trimmed with Irish lace and the  time-honored veil  and   orange   blossoms.   She waa luuiisted by her sister,  MiBS Stella Stinson,  who was gowned  ih white silk trimmed with Irish lace.  The   groomsman    wati    Mr.   Phonse  Hyguns.   The   wedding   march  was  played by Mis. B.   Long,  the church  organist.   After tho service tho young  couple and the invited guests adjourned to the bride's home,  where a wedding dinner was served, followed by a  .reception.   The groom was initiated  na head  of a home by carving   the  turkey,   while the   handsome   three-  story wedding cake, iced snow white,  with n white cross and a wroafch of  fclny white roses, was out hy the bride  with a pearl-handled silver kuifu tied  with whiteoatiu Ribbon.

A letter has been received from the  superintendent of education, Victoria,  acknowledging the receipt of $6.45 in  aid of the Belgian Belief Fund. The  above is a special donation .from E.  Butterfield, and brings the total contribution from Wynndel to this good  cause up to $40.  Lieut. Ashley Cooper was a Creston  caller yesterday. Now that there are  indications that the militia department will give trained officers thepre-  forence in the troops that are now go-  ing overseas Lieut. Cooper is hoping  fco get into tne big European scrap  shortly. On account of his age Lieut,  Cooper has been refused for service in  the ranks as a private,  Mr. Forrester, the provincial policeman at Cresfcon, was a caller here on  Sunday. A Mr. Fraser, who was stopping with J. J. Grady indulged rather  too heavily in some port wine on Saturday night and on Sunday morning  was threatening terrible things to all  ho met with. The police took him to  Creston where, we hoar, the magistrate Hontouced liim to a week in  Oreston jail.  Lieut.

In a semi-personal letter to Major  Mallandaine Lieut. Frank B. Callander,' who left Oreston about eleven  months ago to accept a commission in  an English regiment, relates some experiences he has huu siiiue getting to  the front last July, that we are sure  will be read with a great deal of  interest by Frank's host of friends in  these parts.    He says in part:  "I was sent to France early in July  attached to a divisional ammunition  column, but was only with it ten days  when I joined Trencb Mortars, which  is regarded by some  as a death esn-  tence, but it is really not so bad as all  that.   I joined them for three months  and am still with them.    I am in command of the battery, which consists of  three officers and 25 men.   1 run the  whole  show���������rations,   orderly   room  and stores, and when out on rest,   as  I am at time of writing, do everything.  I have got the best lot of men in the  British army, and  they will do absolutely anything for me.   The men are  practically   all old soldiers.   One. of  them has seen 24 years seryioe, another 21 years, and several others from  12 to 15 years.

She sank, trembling, into an armchair by the    nearest    -window, and  that the present producing plantations were established by Great Britain some years ago. Through the  financing and under the direction of  the British Government, rubber plantations are now operated in Ceylon,  Sumatra, the Malay States and Java.  As a result of this control, the British Government ha% been able to  gradually lower the price of crude  rubber from the former price of $3  a pound, which obtained in 1910, to  67 cents a pound at the present  time. Jttst previous to the outbreak  of the war the price paid for crude  rubber was $1.25 per pound, so it will  be noticed that despite war conditions, when the prices of all commodities have been soaring upwards,  the price of crude rubber has been  reduced.  It naturally follows that rubber is  now rapidly superseding leather in  every instance possible. The cost of  leather is soaring constantly, and  leather footwear is reaching prohibitive prices. Rubber _ footwear will,  according to indications, be extensively worn this winter. It will no  doubt prove a real economy to protect expensive leather shoes with  rubbers and with ^ rubber overshoes.  Nothing is more "ruinous to leathci  than water, snow water having a  particularly injurious effect on fine  shoes.  Canadian Exhibits in XL 3.  C. P. R. Doing Good Work in Making Known the Possibilities of  Western Canada  Canadians    when  they_  go abroad  invariably come home with a higher  appreciation    of     Canada.     This     is  partly due, no doubt, to ths real  .-l.  vantages   Canada   offers,  but  it  may  also be attributed in part to thc c:c-  This Explains tow Price o������ Rubber Footwear in Spite of Increase in Cost of  Chemicals, Fabrics and Labor.  The war is using up enormous quantities, both' of  leather and rubber. At the same time it is seriously  restricting the output of the former, much of which  came from Russia���������while rubber production keeps  pace with the demand. From the great plantations  now reaching maturity in Britain's tropical Dominions  will come this year 150,000 tons of raw rubber���������75%,  of the world's production, and' an increase of oyer.  40,000 tons over last year.  Thus, thanks to the British" GoyernmenFs foresight:  in encouraging these plantations, the Allied armies  have been abundantly supplied with all the rubber  ���������products they need���������Germany and her allies have beea  cut off���������and the price to the world at large has actually  been reduced. Meanwhile leather has been getting  scarcer and more expensive���������80%j higher than in 1914  -.���������and the end is riot yet.  At^ normal prices a pair of good shoes cos? abouti  four times as much as a pair of rubbers���������and would  last twice as long if rubbers or overshoes were worn  to protect them. Or a pair of heavy rubbers for the  farm cost much less'^than heavy shoes* and would stand  much more wear in bad weather. So even before the  war rubbers were a mighty good investment, to say  nothing of their prevention of wet feet,, colds and  doctors' bills.  Now, when leather costs so *tnu*jH more in proportion.  the saving from wearing rubber footwear Is so outstanding  that no one who believes in thrift "will think of doingf without  rubbers, overshoes, rubber boots, or whatever kind of rubber  footwear best suits his needs.

Manitoba   Man   Invents Machine  Facilitate Output  "Througli an official visit of the  Lieut.-Governor of Manitoba, thc  Premier of the province, the mayor  of thc city and others to a factory  in St* Boniface, Man., it has leaked  out that a iocal mechanical genius  has invented two *hriachines which  promise to revolutionize shell-making methods. They can. produce 10  shells in the time that it takes to  make one by the usual process. They  are capable of turning out a shell  from a solid piece of steel finished  ready for the load in three minutes.  Experts have examined them and  pronounced them to be valuable additions to modern mechanical appliances. If all munition factories,  they say, were equipped with such  machines, there would be no difficulty in meeting the. enormous needs  of the allied armies.  Mechanical engineers from New  York and Chicago, sent to inspect  and report, said that, besides being  the biggest war-time inventions they  knew of, they would revolutionize  things in the ordinary world of mechanics and commerce bein������- rttiitc  easily adaptable to many other purposes, such as automobile bearings,  cylinders, etc.  'iakcre oj "Zily nhiic" CitrnSirfUp~SnaunsC6rr,Stc,-i7i-~  und"SUver tSMf .Laundry Starclu 225W  Russians Lost Mica Deposits  Long before window glass was  made, Russia supplied the world with  mica.

As the glass industry grew that of  mica waned, and so completely that  the deposits of mica were, forgotten.  Before, the., present war Russia was  actually importing mica from Canada and India. Today some of the  mica beds have been rediscovered  in the Mamsky forest, which is now  producing 6,000 kilograms annually.

An Appreciation  On  occasion   The  Review  has  felt called upon to say���������or attempt  to���������rude things  about  Cranbrook  generally, more especially   some of  its would-be public men,   but after  the   way    these   same   people did  honor to   one   whom  the   province  has delighted to   honor (Hon.   Dr.  King)   on   Tuesday   of last   week  well may we say ''There is so much  good in   the   worst   of  us,   and so  much bud in the best  of us, that ib  doesn't become any of   us   to speak  ill of the rest of ns."  It was a citizens tribute to one  of Cran brook's   best  citizens,   and  and to their great benefit.  Just a day or two after the  institute annual one of our quite  modest ranchers called our attention to this matter and assured that  this winter with his milch cows he  had proven that a feed of mangolds  and one of bran each day was productive of more milk from a grade  cow than two feeds of bran. He  also related experiences of other  ranchers who had found fchat the  feeding of roots half and half with  grain and chopped feeds had been  fully as good for animals as the  straight grain diet.  To grow root crops will necessitate more labor, tis true, but with  grain feeds at present high prices  it looks as if an acre or two of  roots would be found a real  economy in every respect. Or, at  any rate, in these days of hard  work and thrift the matter warrants close investigation. It is not  the money earned but the real  cash saved that swells the * bank  account, or pays for the ranch or  its improvements.

DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE, OTTAWA,  OCTOBER 7th, 1916.  *****$  We have always found Mr. Keen  a man of his word, whether given  as a private citizen or as a gentleman aspiring to the suffrage of  the people. To date we have had  absolutely no reason to alter our  opinion in the slightest.  After his election he was con-  firatulated on his return and assured that if he vigorously tackled the  reforms he had outlined, and proposed to keep in touch with the  needs of his constituents along the  lines he had suggested, the Kaslo  constituency would enjoy the  unique distinction of having a  representative who honestly endeavored to livo up to the Lincoln  ideal of governmont of tho pooplo  by tho people for tho people.  At the present timo the fruit  growers in this section havo some  problems that need solving and in  the working out of these it is believed that the active co-operation  of tho government would be of  material assistance in their early  and satisfactory solution.  Wo are told that for puroly  politioal reasons Mr. Keen may  llnd it inconvenient to visit tho  Valloy at this juiicUiro, though wo  can hardly believe mieh an incident  would deter the fighting typo of  Briton that he is from making good  rn a pro-electioni promise.  While such a move would ho a  bit out  of   the  ordinary iu thoso  days of practical politics, it is a  step in the right direction and one  that a splendid radical like John  Keen could inaugurate with the  maximumofjbenefit fco all concerned.  UPower of the Press  The days of miracles are not past  ���������at least, not if you get the proper  combination busy on the seeming  impossible. For at leasfc three  years the clergy at Cranbrook have  been far from satisfied with the  way municipal affairs have been  conducted in that oity, and in their  limited sphere strove with mighty  and main to secure oandidafcos and  stir up pooplo to vote for thoso  carrying tho banner of reform, but  with,practically no luck afc all.  In the campaign whioh closed  on Thursday last, however, tho  paraoncj and tho roform olomoafc  had tho vigorous���������and lots of it���������  support; of tho Herald, with tho  result that tlio five aldermen endorsed by tho roform crowd woro  returned by a substantial vote.  Duo entirely to the fact thafc tho  reform candidate for mayor was  about tho best hated man in tho  city ho was not elected, hut at that  ho was only some fifteen votes bo-  hind when tho ballots wero all  oountod, With a oandidato only  slightly popular with tho rank and  file of the citizens the victory would  have been complete and entire.  While for good and sufficient  reasons���������in this practical-age���������the  press all too often fails to attempt  to mould publio opinion along right  lines particularly in municipal  elections, the coup de main of the  Herald on this occasion should help  in stiffening the backbone of the  weak-hearted brethren when  tempted to withold a blow for the  righfc.  Whilo, temporarily, ifc may  alienate fche goodwill���������and somu  business���������of previous friends, the  Herald will be a big gainer in the  long run. All fcho world admiron  a fair, square hard hitter in a good  cause. Evontually fche policy, hew  to the lino lot tho chips fall whoro  thoy may must triumph through  the support ifc enlists from those  who do well and tlio soare it  throws into thoso who would do  evil otherwise.

Nelson claims to have operated its  cityr-owned gas plant at a real profit  of $338.81 last year. The eiectrie  light plant cleared over $10,000.  Penticton operated its city-owned  waterworks at a loss of almost $1,000  last year, which does not include another $4,000 written oif on depreciation.  There were 54 less cases in Penticton police court last year than in 1915.  To show tht ir appreciation the council raised the police chief's salary $10  a month.  Only four men could be found to  accept office as aldermen at Kaslo for  1917. It will be necessary for the four  to name the other two necessary to  compitte the board.  Trout Lake Oddfellows have shipped  their piano and organ to Kaslo for  storage. The instruments were  seldom used and it was feared they  would go wrong through rust and  other causes.  Cranbrook's agricultural society has  just been re-organized, a dozen live  business men elected as directors,  with J. P. Fink president.

As one of the  human family we view the matter  thus, and feel tempted to make a  suggestion relative to peace terms as  in behalf of the common people.

Since Kaiser  Bill, Prussian militarism, the wealthy  commercial   and Junker class,   have  proved   themselves   undesirable  and  dangerous members  of society, and a.  perpetual menace to tne peace of the  world, let the same sentence of banishment  and   exile   be   passed  upon  them and carried into effect  ere peace  be made,  and me thinks the German  people themselves would hail the day  of its being put into execution, which  would prove a mighty factor in bringing to them their freedom 'neath the  beneficent regime of a social democracy.    In order to get this peace proposal   before   the   German   people,   the  airial fleets could be made the medium  for conveying same,   and the printing  press supply the material, in  unlimited quantity if need be.

Unfortunately people sometimes lose sight  of the- fact that if soldiers are necessary in thc trenches and for the  artillery they are also necessary in  the rear, and men are also required  to work in the munition factories  and on equipment.  "Thc whole question is one of proportioning the one to the other and,  so as to obtain the best results possible, to employ each in the sphere  in which he is most suitable.  "The great difficulty is not of  finding men. We can with a stroke  of the pen send hundreds of thousands of men to the colors, but, since  we have already embodied all those  who were employed in "luxury" industries or those who were not absolutely indispensable, our new recruits must bc drawn from thc ranks  of those who perform essential duties.

Possibilities of Developing Trade  With Britain Are Illimitable  A remarkable development in the  fishing industry in Canada is predicted by Major Hugh Green, Director of Fish Supplies for the Canadian Army, who has arrived in Ottawa from London. He is the young  man who induced the Government to  supply fish to the fighters, and the  idea has now been taken up by the  British authorities.  "It is only a matter of producing  the fish and getting it over," said  Major Green. "Once this is done, the  market is good for a million dollars  a week. I hope to make plans for  shipments up to 5,000,000 pounds a  week from Canada. The fish is  here if they will go after it."  Major Green is now representing  the British Board of Trade in buying  for the War Office. .Since the fish  supply to the Canadians in England  was inaugurated iast spring, 2,500,000  pounds^ have been sent over. The  cost laid down in London averages  between 8 and 10 cents a pound.  Canadian halibut landed for the  forces costs 13 cents, while, according to Afajor Green, the prevailing  price in London is 56 cents.  "A change of diet in the trenches  is always welcome," said Major  Green, "and if Canada could produce  il, the Allied armies would take ten  million cans a week. Thc Canadian  fish business in England is not ephemeral. It has become so popular  that the demand for fro--"**1 f.<-i^ .^  bound to keep up permanently after  the war is concluded. We arc now  figuring on supplying the Australian  and New Zealand forces in England  to thc extent of 80,000 pounds a  week."  Major Green is a j-oung Scotchman who previously to going overseas was in the fish business in  Saskatoon. He is in Ottawa to negotiate with the Fisheries Department  and thc War Purchasing Commission, and to organize a business  whose prospects he regards as illimitable. The,Major will visit the principal  centres of the  fishing industry.  uation is detrimental to thc best interests of the country and tiie governments of some of the western  provinces are taking steps to remedy  the matter. Thc clamo.r of the farmers for cheap money and easy facilities for securing loans in rural communities has crystaltzed in a plan  being advanced by the Manitoba  Government unique iu many respects  but perfectly sound as a financial  proposition, according* to many substantial citizens.  It will become effective as soon  as the legislature meets and contemplates an ultimate investment of fifty  million dollars to be employed in  farm loans at five and six per cent,  in amounts ranging from $500 to  $10,000 ovcr a period of forty years,  a certain part and principal payable  semi-annually.  A committee of the legislature has  been working for 'some time with the  Provincial Union of Municipalities,  of Grain Growers, the Credit Men's  Association and leading financial  figures of the province and the  scheme as planned represents the  combined wisdom  of this  clement.  Saskatchewan   adopted   the French  plan  of  rural  credits,  but  Manitoba  At least it possesses the merit of  soundness for it makes the land of  each municipality where loans are  made security for any loss sustained  in the operation in that particular  part  of  the  province.  A unique feature of the plan is thc  fact that the borrower has to accept  five per cent, of this loan in stock  of thc Government Company. To  keep this stock out of the hands of  ordinary investors it is made nontransferable and is attached to the  mortgage. All profit of thc plan goes  to the borrowers, however.  In the beginning the Government  will provide a working capital stock  of $100,000 aud will borrow $1,000,-  000 to initiate the organization. Increased sums will bc provided as the  demand for loans increases. One  month after the idea is approved by  thc legislature loans will begin to  be made in the province. Aftcr one  million dollars in loans have accumulated the government will begin the  sale of bonds, based upon thc mortgages secured in the transactions.  These securities    will bear five    per  vernments into the business of money-lending. They hold that now ia  the West a first mortgage is deprived of its just rights by certain drastic legislation,    such as the    exemp-  jiOItS    ctCiS    Ox    x^A5xm.txxCxiCmm3.tx   m%Tx\x   A.������u  berta. Thc Dominion seed grain  liens are regarded as another damaging influence to the position of a  first mortgage.  If the provincial governments undertake to guarantee loans to farmers they will have, so the loan companies say, to correct much 01 their  own legislation. At any rate the  West is booked for important financial reforms, and, as in the case of  all reforms, final good will come only  with- experience' and possibly many-  blunders. That the farmers will benefit there can be no doubt.���������Montreal  Family Herald.
