Due tb the arrival of some 50  uniforms and other equipment on  Friday last the corps is presenting a  splendid appearance,.and is now down  fco regulation militia- cam" life "with  guarSs patrolling the streets in the  neighborhood of th'e "armory and the  always useful military police also on  duty. P.;.-",-.-';~':::'-.-'-' ������������������:������������������  The men are also getting instruction  along forestry lines. In squKds they  are working out on  the old reliable  crosscut saws on stumps in some of  the vacant land, and also rustling the  necessary supply of wood for the  quarters and cookhouse. They are  also getting initiated into the' mysteries  of saw filing find generalaxe work,as  well as route marches, generally to  Erickson and return each morning.  Yesterday Drs. Borden and Vigneux  of Nelson, who nave been selected as-4-!  the final medical examiners, were here  giving thehien a rigid exaniiuatidu,  out up to the hour of goingHo press  but few failed to pass their scrutiny. ������������������..-.  Speeding up of recruits for Forestry  work hae^beeh strongly, urged upon  the Canadian niiiilia department by  the British authorities. In". a recent  speech Lloyd George, the- British  premier, sfcrcrtigly praised the work of [people,  the Canadian woodsmen already over- j nienfcs;  seas, and asked thyttja.tlt^ast another  3000 of these men be sent to England  at the Earliest pc>s-uble;.; date. ;: Wh i 1 e  ihe)pay^fcH*"tihei)c*^dl..nary^wd.J)dsm^.h:ls':  Sl.lO a* daly;- foe^ the-;nu>re exptsi-t in  the trade better wages are allowed.us  follows; Millwright, S3- per day; mill  sawyer, $3; edgerman. $2.25: saw filer  $2.25; ..engineer,''-$2.25; 'leig setter, $1.75,  with the usual   separation allowance.  Among those who came into camp  this week was Sergt. Bryant, who  arrived from Morrissey with eight  uteri e������n Wednesday. Creston people  will remember him for the stirring  address he gave here on August 4th  last at the big patriotic demonstration  in the hall.  Regimental Quarterinastet Lambkin made quite a record in tbe way of  issuing the equipment whieh came  last Fiielay. He bad all the suits and  other details of the outfit all issued  and the other details all accounted for  early next day���������no small chore when  one remembers the right-litting suit  had to be found for each man, as well  as the same trouble, with boots, etc.,  to say nothing of the as-you go-along  clerical details that have to be attended to.  But when it comes to a. really busy  man Capt. Mallandaine, C.C., seems  in liuve them tilt heal. In addition to  having the care of the Forestry Draft  mobilization he is still responsible for  the handling of the 107th Regimental  affairs, with its drafts of guards at  Morrissey, Bonnington and Trail���������  and having to accommodate both  staffs of -helpers in quarters none too'  big for the tontine olliee, work of tho  Forestry Draft alone.  ' Chef Fraser reports that the generous public have remembered the, culinary department handsomely this  wook, ��������� a particularly appreciated remembrance coming from the ladies  who handled the Conservative whist'  who turned over quite*, a. number of  cakes and other eatables. Othor contributions were: Prosoruea from Mrs.  Ash and E. C. Gibbs, apples from Ii.  Walmsley and \V. K. Brown, and  cakes from J. H. Doyle.

While being a  member (if the board myself it has  never been necessary for me to use mv  voting powers as such, and for this  reason I have felt more in the position  of one outside the board itself and so  tcel free to make reference to their  actions during the time I haye acted  as youi- manager.  Never at any meeting hasany single  member made any suggestions that  could lie construed as likely to,benefit  any particular member (if the board  at, tbe expense of any of tbe shareholders. Always the idei.t back of  every action which the board has  taken has been that the company and  ,the shareholders .as a whole should  benefit regardless of what effect such  action mighl haye upon the cVroctors  themselyew. This does not seem 'much  to'say and yet, more could scarcely be  said of any board of directors and  personally we feel that the shareholders of tho Creston Fruit Growers  Union are particularly fortuniite in  having nuch ai body of men at the  head of their affairs. Men who have  not hesitated to spend their time and  to furnish financial backing in tbe  Interest of the company.  This re������pe rt would  also be lacking if  it did not make   some reference   to  aware fruit crops in the Northwest  are heaviest on alternate years.

Henth. A Wilkin. J  w  season, has spent many hours in  furthering the interest of tbe company  over and above tbe time for which  Kay ment was made to him as book-  eeper. It is pot too much to say  that the success of your company  (hiring tho past\ year, and to which  reference has been made in the  financial reports just read, has been  to a la'rgb extent due to the untiring  efforts of your eecretary.  In preparing the report, for this  afternoon we havo been at a loss to  know just what branch of your business woidd Interest you most. A report conilni'd to figures alone is  necessarily moro or less uninteresting,  and yot tho most important part of  the* busineHH must deal with figures.  While, th'-oHeM which coneevr* cooperative marketing and other similar  questions are* very necessary, after all,  when the end en' the hc^ihou cotuetfnnd  you tire forced to meet financial  obligations the question of most  interest ia how much per box you have  .received for your produce.

It has been a source of some amusement to mo during the past season to  watch street corner talks between  i-anchort* who confine their shipments  to the*; Union and those who have sold  independently. It was always easy  to tell when the quentlon of price waa  brought up by the attitude or ui������i  fldonce assumed by the independent  shipper and also by the crestfallen  look on the faco of the Union shipper.  Quito evident that In a discussion of  prices the Union man usually gets the  worst of It.  ��������� Every clog has his day, and It seems  to un that it is about time that the  men who have* mippoHed cnopevjiMyc  Helling with their moimy, with their  moral support and whh their produce  Hhould hei furnished with an argument  HiilTlciently strong If possible, to awitejh  the crestfallen look to the Independent  uhippcr.  In the first place there are two or  three weal: pninU'. in the independent  shippers argument which we would  like to point, out:  1       ������������������l     .������.������.,..      1     ..

In quoting prices the independent  shipper seldom takes commission into  consideration. This commission which  the Union man must  pay  covers cost  cif   selling,,   cost   of   accounting   and  handling of produce  up to the time it  is loaded  on   the car.    These include  such   items  as   postage,   stationery,  telegrams, exchange on  drafts, labor  in loading, materials foi- loading anel  bracing  of cars.' et.".    Each  of  these  items while small in itself soon mount  up   when   taken   together  to several  cents per box and no doubt,  the independent shipper  must  meet some of  these  expenses, 'Whether   he .admits  that they figure in his returns or not  8. It is uu   impossibility  to  handle  soft fruits or, for  that  matter,   fruits  and vc������get.*iMos oJLr-any  kind  without  losses which are due to  the perishable  nature of the products.    When  thcNO  losses occur in  Union  shipments the  amounts must, of necessity   be deducted off pool prices.    We find  that vory  often the independent shipper does not  take    small   losses   into   account   in  figuring out his prices.   That is to say  if he has shipped 100 boxes of fruit at  $1.00 per box and it' for any reason two  of those boxes have fallen "down usually in speaking of his price ho will state  the price obtained   was $1.00 per box,  whereas under similar condition   the  Union price would be 08c.  In spite, however, of tho abovo factH  It'vdukl very often be found that tho  independent shipper can show results  averaging in some cases a few cents  per unit higher than thc Union price.  Why this should be the case hiis been  a source of worry and sometimes of  discouragement to thu Union shipper.  He feels that commissions paid to the  Union should bc sufficient to pay the  iiftlanc:. <">f fairly competent men. Ho  knows that his neighbor is not a business man; in fact verv often his neighbor's ranch gives evidence of lack of  business ability on the part of the  owner. Why this man should have  received higher prices than tho Union  has often leel to tlio verdict ������������������something  wt'ong."  In the fh-at place let us state that for  the r^me var-h'tv' ***.*,d on the :���������.:'.r.i**-.  market Union pricco are usually high-  'ir.

Then there was a pause, and he
wondered whethev she had changed
her mind about confiding in him.
Going swiftly across thc room to the
door, he threw it open, and found hcr
standing outside with a Huh** packet
half-hidden  in her hand.
He guessed at once what it was.
Shc was holding her father's old letters, and shc was going nt last to
submit them to him, and to let him
see for himself whether there was
any connection between them and
the tragedy through which they were
She. met his eyes guiltily, and passed into the room. He shut lhc door
and followed lier, and stood waiting
while she, with hcr back to him, fumbled with nervous fingers at the packet she held.

hand shc held a piece, of narrow lib-

She held out one packet towards
him. _   ���

The sofa stood in its old place between the windows, and Sir Penywern felt a childish impulse to pull it
away from the wall, and to makc sure
that there was-liotlring underneath.
He conquered it, however, and going
to his desk, unlocked it, turned on his
electric lamp, and undid the ribbon
that tied up the first packet of letters.

there was a knock at the door, uid
he covered the letters with his hands

looking pale and unnerved.

Farmers Buy Autos  ���������p.. ���������...     ������:  It is said that sixty per ejent. of the  automobiles made in the United  States last year were sold to farmers.  Roughly a million cars, costing eight  hundred million dollars, were purchased by Canadian and Ame'..' .an farmers in the automobile year ending  the_31st of July, 1916. Manufacturers  estimate that about the same percentage of car.s made this year will go  to the farms, and as the number of  cars made is expected to show an increase of about 25 per cent, over the  outpub-of 1916, the money spent ou  this continent by farmers for motor  cars in the automobile year of 1916-  17 will come very close to a billion  dollars.���������Charlottetown Guardian.

In the past we have much talk  of what our friends across the line  were prepared to put up but this  seems to be the first really definite  move to find out what the authorities of Washington are prepared  to do in the matter.

For this highly satisfactory state  of affairs much commendation is  due R. B. Staples, the 1916 manager, and J. W. Hamilton, who  looked after the books, to use a  common expression. In the shipping of the large volume of produce  ottered Mr. Staples worked, many  extra hours with no extra pay, was  always on the alert to see that  customers  got   exactly   the   stuff  it should noi be long before the  beneficial effects of the new order  of things should be manifest.  In addition much is expected in  the line of produoing better trade  relations between the farmers'  organization of this and the prairie  provinces, something that has  hitherto been altogether too little  in evidence.'

Now the question  arises, Why so much difference between these prices and the prices received by the ranche-ps*'  The value of bur apple crop depends  upon the excellence or otherwise of  the pack, the, varieties, and the proportion of Nos. 1, tn- 2's or 3's. The  latter, while just as important, does  not seem to be generally' nnderstqoji.-  A good many people* seem to be  under the impression that different  markets exist for different grades of  apples, and that a.No. 1 or 2 or 3 box  will bring a certain price regardless of  how i t is shipped. As a ajatter of fact  the prices w'h'ich will be obtained for  No. 3 apples in any particular car will  largely depend upon tbe proportion of  -3's in that car us compai-e~d with the  l's or 2's. -.-.-.  Some cars which have gone out with  say 10 per cent. 3's have given returns  of 90 cents a box for 3's. Other cars  which have contained nothing But 3's  have brought as low as 60 cents per  box. In other words, markets are indifferent as to buying No. 3 apples and  some of the best markets do not want  them all. Keeping thesefacts in mind  let us give a sample of two or three of  tbe cars which represent the worst  ears shipped out during the past  season:  No. 1.    This car contains 30 l's. no  2's  itlri  f.Tv  balance all 3's;  11 varieties made  .    he list and include among others  Black Twig, Russet, Gano,  Bismark  and Salome.  ^0.2. . 38 l's, 2002's, 2653's ; varieties, Pewaufeee, Wolf River, Peasgood  Nonsuch, Washington Strawberry,  Wealthy.

A careful record has been kept, and  we find that of all those doing business  through the Union about 50 per cent  sold practically everything through  the Union, and 50 per cent sold only  part. In the following list of comparisons we refer to the former as Union  men, and to the latter as independents.  For every 100 boxes purchased Union  men haye brought back filled with  apples practically the ever. 100. For  every 100 boxes apples shipped through  the .fJniov independents have purchased 300 empty boxes. Here are some  individual comparisons���������  Union Men  595 Boxes bought  Apples  sold :   139  l's, 299 2's, 106 3's.  340 Boxes bought  Apples sold: 100  l's, 168 2's, 40 3's.  500 Boxes bought  Apples sold: 186  l's, 243 2's, 82 3's.  350 Boxes bought  Apples sold: 78  l's, 20.4 2's, 60 3's.

BENNETT  S/lm.iif*or Cr&dtun Kmiiuli  counts show very clearly that the independent man has been doing something slse with his Nq l's and No. 2'e  besiaes bringing ~lhein fco the Union  arid by so doing has unduly increased  the proportion of 3's which the Union  has had tp;.handle.  These "are not exceptional cases as  the total list of accounts show just  ��������� about the same difference between the  grades of apnles brought In by the in-  depeudent snipper and those .brought  in by the iJnion men. A. total summary "shows the following. 8 ���������*���������'���������������������������  Out of every 100 boxes brought in  bp those shipping entirels through the  Union.24 per cent were No. l's 55 per  cent were No. 2's 21 per cent were No.  3's. Oars loaded from these lots only  would haye averaged 120 boxes No.  l's, 275 No. 2's, 105 boxes No. 3's.  Out of every 100 boxes brought in  by those shipping partly independent  2 per cent were No. l's, 38 per cent 2's,  60 per cent No. 3's, and cars loaded out  of these lots :would have averaged 10  boxes No. l's, 190 boxes No. 2's, 300  boxes No. 3's.  The expense to the Union connected  with any particular account is due to  the number of transactions this  account has produced more than to the  quantity shipped. It has been found  that those who confined- their shipments to the Union have been responsible for 53 per cent of the total transactions oceurmg during apple shipping season and these transactions have  produced 77 per cent of the total  revenue, .whereas those shipping partly independent gave rise to 47 percent of the transactions but produced  only 33 per cent of the revenue.  Put-in another way it has been  found that out of every 100 individual  transactions which occured 53 df these  transactions were with Union men  and that they averaged $2.51 revenue  for each transaction. Out of every  100 transactions 47 were with independent shippersandthese transactions  averaged only 87 cents   revenueeacb.  The failure of the Creston Fruit  Growers Union to measure up to the  expectations of those who have looked  to co-operative selling as the cu re for  all ills in the fruit business is a  common topic of everyday conversation. .  Those not particularly favorable to  co-operative enterprise point to the  fact that a- considerable portion of our  stock has disappeared, and that we  have failed to secure the highest prices  for-pioduceas proofs that co-operation  has been a failure in Creston at least.  As a matter of feet co-aperation has  not failed but the failure consists in  the fac- that We haye as a community  never realized the true meaning of  co-operation. Instead of finding individual .members of the 'community  willing to make individual sacrifices  for the good of the community we find  many growers taking advantage of  the community for their own personal  benefit.  ���������^he cause of the measure of failure  which has followed the Creston Fruit  Growers Union during the years it  has operated has been' to a large extent "due to the actions of growers  themselves not to the directors or  managers. At least it seems safe to  venture the opinion that had there  been genuine co-operation the Union  would have been a success in spite of  managers and management, and we  think that sufficient proof of this  statement has been_ furnished to-day.  Just on the surface the outlook,  judging from the past, may seem discouraging. Looking deeper is there  not great reason for encouragement in  the fact that there has been no failure  of co-operation for- the simple reason  that co-operation has not been given  a chance to prove its worth, and we  have gone into the figures to-day in  the hope that knowing the facts may  go a long way to strengthen the cause  of united selling efforts in Creston.  We believe that the majority have  been selling a certain amount independently without realizing that thoy  were reducing the standard of the  Union's output and injuring the Union  business* in any way, and that the  futuro will find these people, who  have always heen our best friends in  theory, friendly also in practice.  Should there be a few who have no  confidence in co-operation in practice  no doubt some means can be demised  to prevent them marketing low grade  produce through thtrUnion.

by the overthrow of all the modern
safeguards that had been apparently
placed about human freedom. In
what was supposed lo be one of the
most highly civilized corners of the
earth we sec manhood slavery^ reintroduced, men, women and children
subjected to horrors that render lhc
first of mediaeval atrocities comparatively unimpressive. We. witness the
light of liberty go ine, cut in Europe
aiul the realisation comes to us. thai
there can conic no peace on earth
until whatever freedom the Old
World recently possessed haa been
restored despite the might oi" those
who have overthrown it.
Aro there in tii is country today
Americans so narrow-minded, selfish,

dare assert that the re-establishment
of human slavery on the continent-of
Europe is of no concent to the people

What has made it possible  for us toTand some 2,000,000 men on  the continent of Europe, --quipped  with every single item in the inriu-  itcly varied paraphernalia *���������>f modern  year? How is it that we have been  in a position to conduct simultaneous  campaigns in Egypt, East Africa, the  Cameroon s, Southwest Africa, Mesopotamia, the Balkans and the Pacific?  There are Russian troops righting .at  this   moment  in   France  and   around  ad  at  sal   ,   .   some  3,500,000 people, of whom 700,000 arc  women, find employment therein.  Tliat is a miracle of improvisation  that must, I suppose, bc unique in industrial history.  We arc now turning* out in ^tfree  .weeks as much eighteen-poundei* ammunition, in two weeks as 'much field  howitzer amimmitkm, in eleve*. days  as many medium-sized shells, and in  four days as many heavy shells as wi  were, turning out in the whole of the  first year of the war.

What agency convoyed them? What power protected  them?  The United States has built up with,  the allies a trade that throws all previous American experience of foreign  commerce into the shade. But how  many Americans, I wonder, stop to  ask themselves how it is that this vast  volume of merchandise has crossed  the Atlantic, in the midst of the]  greatest war iu all history almost as  swiftly and securely as in the da3rs ot  profoundest peace?  One by one Germany's colonies  have been torn from her grasp. How  comes it that not a single blow has  j been struck in defence of them bj* 1  the Fatherland^ itself How is it,  again, that of German sea-borne commerce there is none; that not a single German merchant vessel dare  show hcr nose���������her nose, I said, not  her periscope���������out of harbor; and  that Germany has been totally stripped of the enormous asset of her foreign trade?  How is it, once more, that the Belgian and the Serbian armies have  heen rearmed, reconstituted and >e-  cquipped; that Russia has been rej-  munitioncd; that France, though her  Pennsylvania is in the enemy's hands,  is still for purposes both of war and  of commerce a great manufacturing  nation, and that all the allies can import freely what they need from the  neutral world?  The answer to all these questions,  and the sole answer to most of them,  is thc British navy. Our control of  the seas is not a mere adjunct to the  strength of the alliance. lt is its  basis. It supports the whole edifice.  Without it all that thc allies 'have  built up would crumble to pieces.  With it tliey can erect on a rock thc  instruments of certain victory.  fc\.nd besides being the maritime;  and financial buiwark������pf the alliance,  Great Britain is also becoming its supreme arsenal and workshop." Already, and on an enormous scale, shc  has furnished the allies with indispensable supplies, munitions, ships, coal,  clothing, and other material. To her  all who arc fighting with her turn as  to an cxhaustlcss treasure house, and  rarely turn in vain. Shells, field howitzers, heavy guns, grenades, machine guns, and small arms leave British ports iu immense quantities day  after day for the use of onr allies. -  One-third of our total production  of shell steel goes to France. That  fact alone, to those who understand  the character of this war, is an  month we are manufacturing twice  as many heavy guns as the entire  .army possessed eighteen months ago,  the production having multiplied sixfold in the last year, and being still  rapidly on the increase".  - Americans, I imagine, have little  idea of the tremendous scale on  which, things are done. Since the beginning of the war we must have ordered and paid for abroad ox manufactured at home���������mainly the latter  ���������about 100,000,000 yards of woollen  cloth, as much of flannel, as much of  cotton, about a thousand million buttons and another thousand million  horseshoe nails, 60,000,000 pairs of  socks, nearly 30,000,000 blankets, 10,-  000,000 woollen gloves, 50,000,000  brushes, 25,000,000 knives and forks,  a thousand million sandbags, 7,000,-  000 razors, over 2,000 miles of , wire  rope, a thousand million /-pounds of  flour, 250,000,000 pounds of crackers,  and    at least 200,000,000    pounds ot  Trtmrn-.tt.

And yet, 1 dare say, there  are still Americans who believe that  British Labor has not pulled its proper weight. v  But as the climax to all her other  achievements Great Britain has converted herself into a military power  of thc first rank. After raising an  army that far outdistanced in point  of numbers any army ever raised on  thc voluntary system, she has thrown  aside the prejudices of centuries and  imposed universal military sendee on  all her men between the ages of  eighteen and forty-one. Five million  men enlisted in thc army from the  British Lsles before conscription  came into force. By thc time the war  is over at least twelve per cent, oi  the population will have served with  the colors.  And this new army, drawn from  every class and profession and trade  iu the United Kingdom, has shown  during the last five months on thc  Somme, in what is by far the greatest battle of this or any otlier war,  lhat they can beat the Germans al  their own  game.     The     troops  that  couhl carry    such positions    as  Fii-  court. Contalmaison .and Thicpval can  carry anything,     and  thc     Germans'  know it.    Wc have . developed    the  scheme of attack whieh they ittempt-  cd at Verdun, an,d we have turned it  against   themselves   on   a  far  bigger  scale,   with   a   far  heavier  weight   of  men and metal behind    it and    with  far greater results.  Since the battle of thc Somuie began  over 700,000 of the enemy have  been put out of action, and what has  happened  on  the   Somme is  a  mere  joke   to   what   is   coming.      We   can  continue   it   indefinitely;   we   cau   re-  peat  it  in   other  sectors  whim     the  right rnoiucnt strikes.

I      *  Testing' Prussia's  War Theory  Teutons Now Learning What a War  of Nations Really Means  "Thc plai'n fact is  that the theory  of war, having been perfected in Germany about a century ago, is now for  the  first  time being put to  the  test  of  experience  on     an   adequate   and  really  instructive scale.     They  were  great  logicians, were  those  Prussian  theorists. They saw, what was manifestly true, that it was absurd for a  nation  to  go  to war  with  less   than  its whole, strength. Small professional armies had a certain excuse in the  daj^s    when transport    was an enormous difficulty,    but    when the    progress of engineering made it possible  to feed huge hosts and to convey iui-'  meuse   quantities     of   munitions,     it  was  evident  that  thc  nation     widen  went to war without being able, and  willing to  throw  all   its   weight  into  the struggle was playing a fool's part.  .    .    .    Logic, decreed   that  it should  be  a  ease  of all  or none;  and in  a  world in which only u few advanced  thinkers    ("Kant among    the. number)  had  ever  doubted  the  eternal  necessity of war, 'all' was the only possible  answer.     To   the   uaTion   which   first  acted up to this conception, and did  so' with   thoroughness   and  diligence,  great, successes wero assured.    .  But all the world had by  tins    time  recognized lln*. cogency of the   Prussian  loyie, and    had     xwn  that  two  (and even more)   could  play a I     the  game of organizing so as to firing all  their strength lo hear.    Thc result is  that Prussia, confronted by half a dozen converts to her own creed, is now  learning   what a   war   of  'nalioj'.s   in  arms'    really    means."���������William   Archer, in London Daily News.

"The submarine commander directed one of the boats to approach his  vessel, and. several sailors boarded  hcr carrying explosives and on reaching the ship these were placed on  board. Our cook was taken out of  one of the boats, and, with a pistol  pointed at. his head, was directed to  reveal where the stores and provisions were kept. These were loaded  iu one of the. lifeboats still on our  vessel, and wc then pulled away with  this in tow to the submarine. Here  thc commander gave certain instructions, and cross-examined the captain, thc while a German sailor danced round a gun trained on onr boat,  the rest of the crew clapping their  hands in delight at the prospect of  more   frightfuincss.  "There was one thing 1 particularly  noticed. The submarine, had no number, but on the bow wa.s painted the  colors of the German flag in a circle.
