The _ caterpillar  now.in operation is bringing in 30,000  feet a day.and works splendidly.

The book is  a little souyenir the queen gives those  eonfined in what are known as the  Queen Mary hospitals. It has 24  stories in it and is weli illustrated,  among the pictures being -one., of. -the  King and Queen along with" the Prince  of Wales in colors..:..; w>^ib^i--j-v^3^.  The first cougar killihgof the season  was staged on Saturday afternoon on  the Gnu t moiih tai n back of the Att  wood ranch. While out looking for  game that morning Paul Stinson and  Gerald Tjmmons stirred up one of  ib?se animals and so badly had tt  farod of late that it waded into the  dog the boys had with them and  would haye polished it off for breakfast had the lads not beat it off with  some clubs. Getting home with a  badly disfigured canine they immediately bunted up Milt Beam who, with  the aid of his dog, easily got on the  ���������animal's trail the same afternoon and  one rifle shot was enough to end its  career suddenly. The cougar was  rather thin but the hide was in good  shape, measuring almost seven feet.  This is the first cougar bounty paid in  two years.  Oanyon Gity  A. E. Suniuelson has already piled  up almost 4000 poles of his contract  with tiie Company, and expects to get  out at least 2000 more this winU-r.  The Company unloaded another car  of oats last week. With 52 work  horses in the stable the demand for  oats is pretty Htont this winter.  Bobbie Smith writing to Pho'nse  HLyguns from England says that his  battalion is being Hpcoded up preparatory for the final drive in the spring.  He has arranged with Phonse to look  after his ranch horo.  About the biggest; load of lumber  that has beer, hauled from the mill  arrived at tho siding on Friday morning last. Thore wan close to 8500 foot  on tho sloighs and it was brought in  by J. Pilon.  Wo had two distinguished visitors  last. II. S.

With 42 pupils to look after,  some of whom are of this type, the  teacher, Miss McLean, has her hands  more than full and a little co-operation  of this sort from the trustees should  have a beneficial effect, and certainly  no blamecan attach to the teacher in  such unfortunate incidents.        ���������  Sirdar  Owing to the westbound passenger  train-being ten hsurs late on Tuesday  the usnal Presbyterian service had to  be-cancelled. ;  Ensign Kerr, of the Salvation Army,  Nelson, gaye a magic lantern show in  the schoolhouse on Monday eyening.  There was a good turnout, ahd from  what we cantfearn everyone was well  pleased with the program.  Mr. and Mrs., C. M. Loasby entertained informally on Tuesday evening  in honor of their guest. Mrs. -Jones,  whose birthday it was. Cards, music  and refreshments were the features tf  an evening of genuine enjoyment.  Mrs. Tuohey received word on Monday from Miv-Tnohey, who was then  in Vancouver,, saying he was leaving  there next u������j*'foi- Sirdar, ou his way  to England for: actiye service.

Mrs. Tuohey has  three brothers serving with the colors.  Capt. and. Mi*. McCarthy were visiting Sirdar friends on Tuesday evening.  The captain has-now an employee on  the dredge BriEjiant who recently returned from -fche front. He * was  through several battles before being  wounded and sent back to an English  hospital in which he spent some  months before being discharged as  unfit for further service. It is more  than interesting to hear him tell his  experiences.   -../ .:.  The severe cold and stormy weather  east of Crowshest .has put train 513  very late several days lately���������on Tuesday it came ''.in.- almost ten hours behind time. Tuesday's eastbound passenger wasover four hours late passing  through.   The steamer Nasookin got  _ , . ^ IA   mixed up with the ice between'Proctor  and Nelson putting her out of'comr  mission; and the Kukanook had to be  Eressed into service  for the Proctor-  Zootenay Landing run that day.  Mrs. Jones of Kuskanook visited  Mr. and Mrsr Loasby from Monday-  until Wednesday, leaving the latter  day for Nelson where she will spend a  short visit. Mrs. (Capt.) McCarthy  accompanies her and wiii spend a few  days with friends in that city. Mrs.  Montgomery of^Nelson is still a guest  at Kuskanook.  9m*Wmmmm^mtmMmm.0t  mTtrJpBffeam-'&e  O. J. Wigen has been confined to tbe  house the past few days, suffering  with a very severe cold.  Mrs. Carr of Alice Siding is spending the week here, with her sister,  Mrs .Wigen.  Oreston must have been dull, indeed,  this week. So far we get no track of  any visitors from Wynndel.  Miss Anna Hagen, who is living at  Creston at present, was a week-end  visitor ather home here. Miss Emma  Johnson spent Sunday with Alice  Siding friends.  This week will see the finish of hauling logs for this year to the M. Wigen  sawmill. The cut is not quite as heavy  as last season. ._../"..  -Ensign W. Kerr of the Salvation  Army Social Service department gave  an entertainment at the schoolhouse  Tuesday evening. It was an illustrated lecture delaing with his two year's  woi*k with the Alaska Indians, and  was both amusing and instructive.  Although the night was cold there  was a large crowd out, and all present  enjoyed it very ranch.  Alex. Matheson and W. Arrowsmith  were here from Creston last week  loading out a car of cordwood which  the latter was shipping to Nelson.  The license of the Kitchener Hotel  has been transferred to Wm. Johnson.  Provinciai poliee officer Forrester was  here on Saturday closing up the transfer papers.  Mrs. Hunt returned on Friday from  a few days' visit with friends in  Creston. Mr, Hunt visited the same  town on Tuesday. :  Harry Rymell left last week for  Edmonton where he intended.going  up for examination for overseas  service in a railway construction  corps. He has much experience in  various lines of railway work aad  should make an ideal recruit for that  arm of the service.  A hot box on a car of a westbound  freight on Saturday night was responsible for the ditching of three or  four freight cars at a point about a  mile west of here. The work train  was along on Sunday and got the cars  back into running shape.  Barney Archibald and an associate  of the Kootenay Shingle Co. at Salmo  was here between trains on_j3unday  looking over the old Burges6 &  Creelman mill and the years-old stock  of Paulson logs, with a yiew of purchasing and cutting we presume.  The deal for them vvith the Cranbrook  Sash & Door Co. h as fallen through,  we are told.  Teddy Clauson, who has been mixologist at Hotel Kitchener for some  time past, ieft iast. week for Cranbrook  and points east.  'i^^^I^SK^~'fm  &8g&5se&si������g������ gBmn&e  ^AA,i.  Now that the Valley i*anehers have j  got theiF final statements covering!  fruit and vegetable "sales during 1916,  and, incidentally, have been paid in  full for all the stuff they shipped last  year, a few observations as to market  conditions, along with a statement of  supply to take care of the orders'at'  the higher figure. In consequence,  early in thejseason the average price  per crate was but $1.75. As the season wore on it was possible to rectify  matters and under the circumstances  $1.94 is a fine price,  and one that wiii  prices paid, and some other informa-, compare   more than  favorably   with  A alelghload of. the younger people  wore dow.n to Port, Hill on Saturday  night for a dunce in tno Oddfellowf  Hall in that town.  Tho chango fcr the colder along with  a fow snow fiuri'ion Iuih helpi'd the  Company nleigh haul nouh*, hn Min  trails wo'-ei gutting a little shy of snow  in spotfl last WiU'k. About KiO.000 feet  a day l������ now coming into tin* yard in  logn.  Wo have with un I.IiIn week and, wo  hope, for several morn of them, W. A.  Pciimc. the mayor of Alico Siding, who  Iuih hl������ team buny on the skidding nl.  Camp No. Jl. Mr. IViiho Ih a grout  iitory toller and bilghloin, up the life  oi mid eamp at night in great nliapo.  ililMin 'VoniM** ih   the  here to tdgn   up  with  itiMt. one from  Major Mallan-  tion. as'may or not be revalant under  the circninstances, should not be  amiss when most of the" men on the  land have a little time to spare to  read mark, leai-u and inwardly digest  the same���������and get ready for the  j-mnual m of* ting some time this  month.  The average price for the strawberries sold through the Union this  year will be -$1.65 per crate. This is  less than the-1915 crop fetched, though  the lower price is not altogether  surprising ns the berry season last  year was almost three weeks later  than the year previous, and tbe  weather during most of the pieking  season was not the sort to produce  berries that would stand travelling  any distance in kss than carload lots.  To* illustrate: In 1015 berries were,  shipped by express to Saskatoon and  oven further cast und arrived in good  shape, while in 1910 express shipping  beyond Medicine Hat was precarious.  A gratifying feature of tho season  however was the effort to capture the  Winnipog market. At least a half-  do/en ears, mostly from Wynndel,  were sent to the Manitoba capital,  and in eyery case the fmit; arrived iv  good shape. Tho price, of course, wns  low, but this was due entirely to the  berries reaching Winnipeg after the  demand for strawberries had ceased,  particularly for preserving purposes,  TTarl the trade been advised to wait for  the Creston Valley hurries it is felt  that tho housewives in that city could  have been porsuuded to wait for the  Creston Valley berries for tho preserving, thus ensuring a much better  price.  Tho rasphorry shipper will nverage  almost $1.1)4 por crate for his product  last season. Union officials are not  backward in utatlng tho price should  haye boon higher, and would have  been had the growers marketed  through the Union the number of  orates they had estimated they would  early In the season. As wo under  'iland tho .situation 250 crates a day is  ample to take oaro of the orders ship-  ried by express. ' Early In tbe season  t was estimated there would be almost 400 crates a dny coining in. Tn  order (o gel. miIk tor this surplus lf>0  crnt.es dully It wus necessary to contract to sell these at a considerably  lower price Mian ihn standard market  (���������notation. Aud the fact that even  the normal 2R0 crates a day even were  not available to fill orders did not; help  mat tern for the simple reason that the  dealer who conl.raet.od for the horrlcH  at the "surplus'' prico demanded his  berries and to mainl.aln tho Union'*.  reputation in this regard It wan nocen-  sary to noil raupbeiiieii at. these "sur-  phiH" qiiotatioiiH while, at the sanio  time,   there    wuh  not   a  big enough  other points in the province.  Black Currants will this year bring  the grower $1.47 per crate, and the  Red Currants $1.17* Something akin  to the raspberry trouble was experienced with Currants this year,  only instead of having too few there  were too'many of them coming in  spots. Experience has shown that  the demand for Currants is pretty  much the same throughout the season  and that from 10 to 20 crates per day  is about all the market Creston cat era  to will absoib.' Last season the  curi'ants came in between strawberries  and raspberries and there seemed to  be a tendency amongst the growers  to keep the pickers busy on currants  when there was no soft fruit to be  picked, with the inevitable result that  on some days as high as 40 and 50  crates of currants had to be sold on a  market that was normally good for  only ^0. With the limited, though  steady, demand for currants it would  seem to have been better had tho  growers spread the currant picking  over tho entire season and kept up an  even and steady supply���������and realized  the normal season price of at least $2  per crate.  There were three pools on plums  last season. Between the first and  middle of September���������the Peach plum  J  tb be sold other varieties not so  much in demand and the price is that  much affected. The quantity of the  poorer varieties was not,large,, however, and therefore the price is based  as for the two best selling kinds*  Ripe tomatoes last year brought the  rancher 63 cents per crate, while the  green ones brought 48 cents. While  the returns for ripe ones is not in a  elass with the money received for  them in the palmy days, still it is considerably higher than the selling price  ih 1014 and 1915���������-with no rebates as  was the case for the '15 product. However the tomato crop was a big disappointment all round A very considerable area was plantek to them  but the season was decidedly "off."  Only about 2000 crates of the ripe  ones were handled, as compared with  almost three times that many the season previous. The small quantity is  held to haye injuriously affected the  price, in that it was never possible to  ship a straight car, and where they  did go out in any quantity they were  included vvith a few hundred boxes of  apples, and generally speaking tliere  were few buyens for these sort of  mixed carloads.  Here's the way applo prices averaged  up; No. 1, $1.13; No. 2, 09 cents; No. 3,  84 cents. Get wise to that* ������������������average"  feature.. During 1010 tho local Union  handled apples a little different than  in former years in that they grouped  them into three classes, Special, A  and B.  In the Special class went Northern  Spys and Mcintosh Reds, and for  these varieties the season  prices are:  Mesdames   Compton,   Cherrington,  Bennett, and Mallandaine,   who. were  in charge of the dance in Mercantile  wall, on Thursday night last, scored a  decided success as dance prompt ers jti  ,:at least one ^resp^ct^\ah^?.ihjat^'aa^tlmt; j  /^^^'ti'ia^ied'las-weltlas' the single fblksi"  had a rare good time at the hop���������some-  thing'that cannot^always be truthful-  lv said   of  these affairs' ������&'���������";��������� Creston.  The augmented orchestra and Creston  band supplied good music, and with a  fine floor and Messrs. Miller and Compton in  charge in  this department, a-  iong with excellent lunch supplied by  the   hostesses,   everything    went  as  merry as a marriage fete from 9 until  3 a.m.    A couple of boxes of chocor  lates were raffled, and along with the"  sale of some cakes that remained after  supper, the ladies were able to make a  cash donation of $25 to the Red Cross  Auxiliary on  Tuesday as a result of  their efforts on this occasion.  season���������tho  price was 87   cents   per  No. 1, $1.30; No. 2, $1.17, and No. 8, $1.  crate.    From the middle until the end  of September   thoy   sold at 68 cents,  and for the balance of the season the  figure was 00 cents.   This would look  like a fair price, but just what would  have happened to prices had 1010 boon  a big plum year is not problematical,  Like the currants there is plenty and  to spare of plums to supply availgble  markets, but as 1910 was a light plum  year   the user   paid   slightly   higher  prices than n. year ago.    At  that, we  aro told,  that Creston   prices would  have been higher had this fruit reached  the   warehouse  in proper shape.  Last'season'the tendency was to bring  in plums over-ripe for shipping, thus  getting  on   to   tho market   in   poor  shape all to often. This state of affairs  may   be  attributed   In   part  to  the  growers who wore doing independent  Hhippine; holding  th������������ir  pluiUM  to noil  tbomsclves and when they found they  could not   sell   them direct, bringing  them along for the Union to dispose of.  No. 1 pears were good   for $1.50 per  box last year, with tho No. 2's bringing $1.25.    Growers were naid on two  pools   for   their    crabapples.     Traii-  condant.N and similar varieties brought  85 eon hi for No. I'u and 70 cent.H for  No. 2.   HyHlopH and similar varieties  wore \fttttti fn������* $t.0F������ fnm "Mfo, I !',:*,'* u\;  eenl.H for t.woH.

In tlio C class nro Alexander,  Wnnhington Strawberry. McMmiu'o  White, Baxter, Pewaukee, Bismark,  Wolf River, Ponsgooci Nonsuch, Gano,  Gideon, King David, Arkansas Black,  Ben Davis, Sutton Beauty, 20-oz.  Pippin, Walbrldgo, .^tni-k. Bos-cop nnd  Black Twig, and these sold at$l 00 for  No. 1; 8JI cents for No. 2, and 70 cents  for the No. 8.  The Union officials, we fancy, are  not propnrer! to :*,r;'iu: tV.,it !h..s cl'i.'.si-  ilcation is correct as to order of merit.  This arrangement was the one that  looked good to the buyers and they  were accomodated accordingly. As  to the price, it seems safe fco iiHsnine  that, bad the Valley bad a heavier  output, of the Nott. 1 and 2 grades the  irieoH would have been a shade higher.  pri'M'tin* of   too many No. ii's in  prlc  The ,  car lots has a tendency to bring down  +./\s *  ������-*������. ������  p^4 ������*������������*������ -t.9 |l!#4'**  wit h'stniidin-uf t\ common theory that  apploN nro ;|hk������ ������ipple������ nx'A tliat the  i-ouHtuiicr docs not give a hang  whether they aro wrapped or not.

About 30 men now on guard duty at  Bonnington Falls-and Trail, who are  awaiting medical examination, and a  like number at tho campat Morrissey,  all of whom are members of the 107fch  Kootenay   Regiment,   aro   ayailable.  Thero are also about 20 men at Fernie  who   will como on  here as  soon as  transportation is available,   while Dr.  Green at Cranbrook,  and Dr. Borden  at Nelson, official   medical inspectors,  state they have   also quiie a number  of applicutions, to say nothing of more  at Grand Forks, whore Capt. Kirk is  in    charge   of    overseas   recruiting.  Applications direct have been  made  by men in tho Windermere country,"  Sloean City, Kingsgate, Perry Siding  and other points.  Since our last issue the following  have been added to the strength of the  draft: Lionel ForreisU-i-, C. Bauiioti,  Win. Fraser, Sam Scott. Herbert  Gobbett, J.

In a tea-gown of gold-colored brocade shc looked like a queen as she  sat pouring out tea in blue and white  cups, her dark hair, for she wore no  hat, sharply outlined against thc gay  colors of the little Japanese screen  behind hcr.  Three ladies were with heir; two  were unknown to Daphne. But in the  third she recognized, with a sudden  feeling of uneasiness, thc great lady  of thc neighborhood, and the most  vigilant censor of manners and morals whom the county could boast.  The Dowager Duchess of Shcppcy,  or, as she preferred to be styled, Ro-  sina, Duchess of Shcppcy, was an  lutocrat, and nobody disputed either  ner authority or hcr discrimination.  If you passed her censorship, you  were socially saved, and a handshake  from her was a passport for any newcomer.  She had been gracious to young  Lady Tradescant, had sniih d upon  hcr at her coming to Kcdgrange Hall,  had been indeed among the first  callers upon Ihe baronet's wife.  Daphne had been well received at the  Dower House, and felt herself an established favorite with the Duchess  before she had been a month in hcr  husband's homo.  Now, however, the young wife was  quick to see the changed demeanor  nf the gvciil   lady.  The  Duchess,     scaled  in  n special  arm-chair    wliich  had    been brought  out   for  hcr,   wa.s   holding  a-kind   of  court, .si) lhat the hostess, Lady Bed-  worth,   became  but  a   secondary   figure.

Study Your Soil  To Secure Maximum Crops a Knowledge of the Land Is Necessary  i The soil is the farmer's capital.

Too often it is not given  the proper care, nor is sufficient intelligence  exercised  in  its  use.  The plant derives certain -substanc-  j es necessary to its development from  the- soil; the most important of these  am nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash. The farmer'should know whether his soil contains those in sufficient quantities to meet the requirements of a maximum crop providing  Persistent Asthma. ��������� A most distressing characteristic of this debilitating disease is the persistence with  which recurring attacks come lo sap  away strength and leave the sufferer  in a stale of almost continual ex--  haustion.

This   trouble  may  appear at any age, but is most often  met between    the  ap-cs    of  six    and  fourteen.     The.   most   frequent   cause  of the disease is poor blood, aggravated by indoor confinement, or mental   strain    at  school.     Under    these  conditions   the  blood    fails   to  carry  nourishment   tn   the   nerves   and   the  child begins to show Hstlessness and  inattention.

Young  re seeding a portion  of   the Koote-  so long as the offering  is legitimate. Prohibitive measures  seldom have the desired effect  especially with the ladies. Mother  Eve was enjoined to leave the  apples alone, but it was only a  matter of a few days till she grabbed the biggest Mcintosh Red in  the orchard, and also inveigled  Father Adam to help eat it, and  thus precipitate the downfall of the  human race.  Creston   must  have   its amuse-  ! ment, and until  our correspondent  ��������� has something worth-while to offer  I in place of the dances The Review  cannot countenance  any  prohibitory dog-in-the-mangor policy.  Possibly if we had a municipality  were purchased and  there is $25G  worth of them still on hand.    Just  casual like it would  look as if a  good  deal   of faith  healing must  have   been   practiced,  or  possibly  Mayor Anderson, who is one of the  board   of   management,   has been  treating   the   patients to  bagpipe  concerts, in which case most every  self-respecting inmate  would pass  out to  the   land   of harps���������or  to  complete   his   treatment   at some  similar institution where they have  greater regard for life, and a finer  sense   of   distinction   as   between  amusement and punishment.    The  life fco  skirl o' the pipes may be  some Scotchmen, but it's anything  but that to others of the human  family. The attention of the Kaslo  branch of the S.P.C.H. is respectfully called to the matter.  Cranbrook people will suffer very long  as the C.P.K. has a pile in storage  there as big as a mountain.  The Nelson brewery had a prosprous  1916���������so much so that after paying the  usual dividend there waa $100 over,  which was given the Patriotic Fund.

Or. how would it be for the  Board of Trade to call the agriculture department's attention to the  matter and have them conduct the  experiment over a reasonable area  j*f these overflowed lands.

The interest rate is quite  attractive and the bonds can more  readily be converted into cash at at  least their face V-alqe than most  slow notes at a much higher rate  of interest even���������the latter always  being subject to some "shaving,"  be the same more or iess.  The way local ranchers are  flirting with the sprayer-buying  question, via the Farmers' Institute,  they would seem to be ahout as  tickle as the would-be bride and  bridegroom of whom the poet  sings. "First its April, then its May;  then   let'e have   mother  name the  she   always do<*-s for  .I..  ���������: :_i���������    ���������e  (jriiiuiijie    ui  "vl,���������  day"���������which  nprll,    on  sooner the better." ��������� ��������� .  No one will blame them for  wanting to buy to the best advantage, but at that there is always  the possibility of overdoing the  economy racket by buying something they know very little about,  and about which the neighbors  know just a little bit less.

Patent medicines are alright for  <:oughs, colds and cholera morbus,  but for a broken leg a qualified  physician is youi* only salvation.  The same theology applies with  equal effect to spray machines in  that home-tinkering with complicated machinery oftentimes makes  the final expert repair bill just a  little the heavier.  A Conservative frjend of ours  wants to know why we are not  doing some of our former-time  shouting f<* r the appointment of  another Small Debts Court judge  ���������said vacancy having existed now  for almost a year. So far as we  can learn the old difficulty still  exists: no really competent person  can be secured to accept the honor.  Now that' the Brewster administration has shown a disposition to  cut down the civil service to the  point where every man will have  enough to keep him busy seven or  eight hours a day, it might extend  the good work by having Judge  Forin of Nelson come down here  say once a montu for that purpose.  If newspapers can be relied upon  it is apparent Mr. Forin has considerable time to spare for such a  job, and in these days of thrift  even judges should not be above  doing a little extra labor, provided  same is worked well within union  hours and at not too great sacrifice  of judicial dignity, of course���������whioh  can hardly be, seeing that he draws  down a few hundred per for acting  in that capacity at Nelson- and somo  other points.

Dear Sir���������We the undersigned  users of the ferry across the Kootenay  River at the Reclamation Farm are  most desirous that the same be. removed to opposite the Goat River  bridge, and ask the earnest support  of the Rxecutjue Committee on our  behalf."  At the outset permit me to say that  I am very much in favor of the ferry  being moved as requested, but iri spite  of that I am compelled to withold my  signature from this precocious document. .       '���������  1 well  remember  that  during the  provincial   election    campaign     last  summer   the   Liberal   workers   Were  specially vociferous in demanding that  the machine be smashed.    On enquiry  as to what constituted "the machine"  I was told that in the Valley: Ifc was  the Conservatiye association executive,:  which I was further assured was but  *b cog in the bigger vehicle,  of which  ex-Premier Bowser was the hub, and  unless supressed  this prpyince Would  be up against association control even  down  to the appointment of school  teachers so brazen was "the machine"  becoming.    In  place of  this . Liberal  friends assured  that were Mr. Brewster   returned B.C.   would  be   given  some of that government through the  people for the people.  01   something  better, and that John   Keen would be  around every so often   "co personally  take our instructionsin public matters.  Realizing that it   was   time for   a  change, and that for   a. time the new  broom would sweep clean. -I lined up  on the Liberal side"on September 14th.  Consequently readers will realize my  utter astonishment,  this early in the  new government's life, to be asked to  sign something that is an exact replica  of what obtained,   in the -Bowserian  epoch���������that era when political might  was   right,   and  graft, extravagance  and political debauchery of every sort  was the rule rather than the exception.  Of course if this is the first offeuee,  and the executive promise  not to let  it occur again,   or if the  party who  drew   Lhe petition  did so under the  , impression   that   the Grits  Would be  '; running things  pretty much   as the  ^-Tories���������_and    worded,  the     petition  accordingly, without asking any questions,   1 Will   readily   withdraw   my  -public  -fri-tiets^^  ' work, thoughmnder fche.circumstances  '" I assuredly think some authoritative  j announcement is due.  '    If we are simply to have a change of  machines���������from   the Bowser touring  Overland to the Brewster Ford���������the  sooner the people are so advised   the  better.   There's  nothing like playing  this political game with all the cards  on the table.    As  Mr. Barnnm has so  aptly said, ���������'You can fool all the people  once, and some of   the people oftener.  but yon  can't fool all  the people all  the time."  Undoubtedly others have witheld  support to this ferry removal for the  same reason as I am refusing my  signature, and as the matter is certainly one of some urgency the objectionable feature of it should be  rectified, either with the Liberal  executive consent, or without, and  make it straight appeal to John Keen,  or the minister interested, as should  haye been the case at the" outset.  For the sake of tho good name of  real Liberalism, as well as to expedite  the matter the petition is seeking to  improve, some statement should be  forthcoming either from the executive  or tho petitioner. If, us the incident |  discloses the old "machine" order of  things is to prevail, so much tho hotter  for all parties the sooner the real facts  are stated. Speak up, Mr. Dow, and  associates.

' ���������.'���������''    T  Firm Resolve to-Secure the Peace of  Europe for a Century  Two great forces rriake for the continuance of the struggle. One is thc  firm resolve of the allied powers that  will make its renewal impossible,  that will assure thc peace of Europe  for a century.    When    they    talk of  "crushing Germany;' the meaning is! Russian General Believes That  that the military power and the imh-J  tary   ideals,   the   Imperial arrogances  FOR Cabman a-dmc  ABSOLUTE DEFEAT   IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME  Wc have uhvays been, proudly "conscious   of   what  the  sous   of   Britain  luwe been doing at the front.    Is il  not tinte we realized what the. dau*",;Ii-  ��������� tors' ot Britain are*"Uoing at home?  Though the vast Arsenal oi Woolwich is at our own doors, tew of us  who sleep in London have any real  sense ot its colossal presence, its im-?  mcu.se significance, the tremendous  force it stands for. Its origin dates  back to other.. war?, bnt when Nthe  present war began its workers were  only 14,000 in I all, without a woman  of their number. Now there arc 17,-  000 women and 50,000 men.  That is not all. . Notwithstanding  its fierce reality Woolwich is_ a symbol rather than a geographical expression. To that centre on the  Thames three and- a halt miles by  two and a half, with its" numberless  workshops, its endless avenues nnd  its hundred and twenty mites of internal railway, there radiate thc activities of scores of associate factories round about, so that 30,000 workers more, chiefly women (97,000 in  all), are feeding this almost fathomless reservoir. Woolwich is a great  mechanical octopifs with arms that  reach over, across and- around Loudon and  thc country about it.  Before going* into the women's  workshops you are taken to the  forges of the men, for it-is impossible to come to "Woolwich without  seeing the awful basilicas of bridled  force in which, the mammoth guns  arc created. Here is one of them, a  vast place, as big as Albert Hall. "A  cblossai Nasmyth hammer, with a  blow    of 40 tons,  is    pounding on  a  some great black monster she does  not seem to bc the. least afraid. Here  is another young girl who is feeding  a round disc with bits ot metal that  look like discolored farthings, and as  hcr own particular Caliban eats them  up it utters from its interior a hoarse  grunt that hits you like u blow on  the brain, yet she does not seem to  hear.  But most of the work done by the  women looks simple enough, and  seems perfectly natural to their sex,  although it has always hitherto been  done by men. One woman is turning  base plates for shells on a turret  lathe. Another is cutting copper  bands for shells from tubes. Another  is pressing the copper bands into  their places. Yet another is riveting  brass plugs on to high explosive shell  bodies. Some are drilling the holes  through the six-inch shells. Others  are rough-turning the shell surfaces;  and yet others are gauging and part-  ing-oit the bodies of the huge eight-  inch high explosives. Many are mak-j  ing shell fuses, a task in which wo-!  men have become amazingly proficient, and many mora are at work at  the inspection board, where, being  trained to the use of one gauge only,  they have developed an efficiency to  which men have- never attained.  All the women \*c*������ear the same uni-  fq^m, a khaki-colored overall girdled  at the waist, and a cap <~������f *he shape  of a bathing-cap. This is in the interests of safety, lest thc dress or the  hair of tiie operator should be caught  in  thc pulleys  and belts  of the ma-  of "Germany, must he destroyed. -In  Germany the chief motive for continuing the struggle is the desperate  need of the militarists and Imperialists to save themselves, the dread of  what they know will happen to them  when thc war ends in their defeat.  Jt is an interest separate and distinct  from the interests of the German  people. Could thc people bo made Jo  see and understand that tho dynasty  and the military aud agrarian classes  are fighting for themselves, not really  for Germany or for German subjects,  that the dreadful burdens they are  bearing-, the sacrifices they are compelled to makc, are not in their own  behalf, but to save the ruling classes  from overthrow, there would come a  day of reckoning in Germany that  would very quickly end the lighting.  ���������From the New York Times.

Tiie discovery of tbe general's subterranean quarters in Beaumont,  where he breakfasted every moruino;  in pajamas, caused much merriment  among the British soldiers.

It has been hcr boast for  years that only a 'silken cord' connected thc mother country with her  overseas    Dominions    and    colonies.  j. lts,t.   uuic   ia   petal.      j. lie   -.vjcj.   iins   U'--  monstrated  that  unity of c-nort  and  direction must continue.  "Canada has* assumed a heavy portion of thc burden of the war. far  I greater than anyone anticipated. Canadians have stood in critical positions  and have held them. They have done  men's work, fulfilling the terms of  the partnership that exists between  thc various members of ihe Empire.  Canadians have won a tiame which  will forever distinguish them. NeveV  will they bc confused with other nationalities ou this continent. Canada  will, in fact, be a senior partner in  the British Empire, bearing an equal  share of the burdens, reaping an  equal proportionate share of the profits and filling a prominent seat at  the  Council  table.  "Lloyd George's elevation to the  Premiership undoubtedly'is the outcome of a desire on the t>art of the  more aggressive party in :he House  of Commons to have a Covernment  thafc will prosecute the war with more  vigor.    Thc  change merely indicates  c! food hc had in a well stocked larder.  tion. A gigantic press of 4,000 tuns  power is drilling a hole through another enormous block of white-hot  metal.

Under its  . open arch, withoj.it a sound or the  appearance of a li3nd to guide them,  and with a motion that is almost  ghostlike, the great anvils with their  burning   freight   glide  into  position.  ���������A score of stalwart men, stripped  to the waist, stand round with long  iron rods and pinchers. They push a  thick black ring of apparently cold  metal on the top of the white-hot  block. One man stauds under a huge  clock with his hand on a lever.. No  one speaks.

It reaches  the, black  ring,  presses down on it, descends without  a pause to the white-hot block, rests  on top of it- for a moment, 'here is a  thud  as   of   something   falling  into   a  pit beneath , and then    the    column  rises,   the  arch  is  reopened,  and  the  ring   has   disappeared,  having  passed  clank, which make your temples  throb, sings (aftcr their first days in  the factory) like music in their ears,  and they would, miss it if it. stopped.  They work day and night, -in . two  suiits Oi j.2 hours eacu, with a break  of an hour for dinner and half o.n  hour for tea. Their pay, which is  usually by the piece, is generally  large, the minimum, being*, I think,  <a pound a week, and thc maxim um  live or seven  pounds.    ...  They talk very little���������indeed, hardly^ at all. Perhaps their work requires all their attention; perhaps  their spirits are under the ,-:pell of the  deadly things they are dealing with.

"They must know that in the efforts  we ard making to save them this sentiment is the dominant factor, not  merely a question of our own self-  intej-est to^protect our flank left.  "Rumania is now feeling for the  first time the pressure of war and.  the bitterness of defeat, but Rumania,  must realize that defeats are but incidents of a greater campaign. Behind her stands great Russia, ������,vho  will see that her brave little ally who  came into thc war for a just cause  does not ultimately suffer for daring  to espouse the cause for which ws  are all fighting:  "Personally, never since the beginning*'have I believed that the en-  -emy had a chance of winning. While  they are able to continue successful  offensives-.it is difficult for them to  realize that they are not approaching  a successful peace.   _ "  "This summer's operations mark  a definite period of defeat. That period dates from the time when the  Allies, co-ordinating their programmes, seized from the enemv the capacity for continuing the offensives  arid dictating their strategy to us.  "Fro"m the beginning of the operations tlfis summer on the Russian  southwestern front thc enemy haa  lost control of the situation. In.  spite_ of his superhuman efforts to  regain thc initiative, he has utterly  failed to do so. Again and again  on this front the enemy's design to  block our plans and throw us back  on the defensive has been ruined by-  the valor and fortitude of our heroic*  troops.

Last  year they did a lot of damage to apple  trees, particularly on the Swanson  raech. This winter ranchers have not  got trace of their activities at 1*11.

Every 'animal of this sort that can  stand up to a fair day's work has been  pressed into service in the extensive  lumbering operations in the Valley  this year.  About hiilf a dozen grown-ups who  have signed to take tiie apple packing  course with the Fanners' Institute  are wondering whether there will be  a special chiss for them later on or  whether they will get their drill with  the juvenile squad whose class is due  to start on the 12th.

Westbound passenger train is running away behind time this week.-  Tuesday afternoon's train went  through at 2.30 a.m. on Wednesday.
