Pendry  Killed in Action  Still another name has to be added  to the honor roll of Creston Valley  soldier boys 'gone wests' word reaching- Oreston on Monday that Pte.  Charles Pendry had been killed in  action on March 1st. ,   .  The iate Pte.PeEdxy enlisted and  trained' with' the 103rd Battalion at  Victoria, going overseas in July last.  He was detain in England for almost  eight months where ^  s^rtic1Wr*i6,.one^piF--;^g canipo. Early  in February he 'asked:for a transfer to  the 54th Battalibfl^nv order to get  ���������xs^rcss yi tue fignimg in France, and  on the x4fh of |Pei>j-utti*y he went over -  with a draft, it would possibly be  the 16th or 17th before he would get  into action, which means that he had  less than two weeks in the trenches  hefore being killed.  Charlie was quite -well known in  both Creston and Erickson, having  worked for a couple of years with  Frank Putnam just prior to enlisting,  and was well liked by all who enjoyed  his acquaintance. He owned a place  in the Alice Siding district on which  his brother, Arthur, is at present  -wintering seyersl head of stock, and  to whom the bad tidings came by  tetter from his mother. One othee  member of the family is also with th e  British forces at the front.  K. B. Staples was a week-end visitor  at Nelson on business connected with  the Fruit Growers Union. Mrs.  Stapled was with Cranbrook friends a  few days the early part-i/f the'week.'.  week: brushing theV 2^''acres Ernest  Penson has eo^racted^'toe*eat ior Jos.

Neither the measles nor the weather  seriously affected the: turnout at the  Erickson school this month, the  average daily attendance being 19,.  according to the monthly report  issued'by the teacher, Miss E. Bow.  Two scholars made a perfect attendance, Mabel and Delia Warren.

Eiias and Ragnvald Uri returned on  Friday from a week's visit at Spokane.  J. B. McPhie of Ceylon, Sask., who  has been visiting his sister, Mrs. > J.  Bathie, returned home on Wednesday.  Nelse and Toin Ramstad went to  Kitchener on Monday. Tom returned  on Tuesday.  Mr. Rosendale had the misfortune  to ciit his hand severely while chop-  ing wood, necessitating the attendance  of the doctor.   . ,    ^  Wild geese are to be seen in considerable numbers on the lake this  week^ an unfailing sign, according to  Mayor Daly, that balmy spring ie just  around the corner.  Mrs. Loasby. was a Creston visitor  on Tuesday for the meeting of the  Red Cross Society. If the -weather is  favorable. Sirdar will be represented  at the society's dance at Creston on  Easter Monday.  Mrs. Barker, who has been in charge  af*the Sirdar school this term, has  resigned that position, effective this  week. The -trustees are expecting to  sscure Miss Arrowsmith of Creston for  the balance of the term.  There will be the usual monthly  English Church seryice at the school-  house on Tuesday evening next. Being  Easter week the service will be.of that  character. -."���������'���������'  The two nephews of Mr. and Mrs.  Loasby, who have been yisiting them  for some time past, left last week for  their home at the coast.  The goyernment dredge that has  been operating at the Landing for some  time past, is not operating at present;  having shifted down to Sunshine Bay,  where it is laid up.- -;  There is another /.blockade in the  C.P.R. yards at present, and w^jst-  bound cars are now being held at  Creston so crowded are the sidings  here. It is expected the second crew  will soon be 'put to work again to  efficiently handle the traffic;.  Carver.

Onions are another line  also favored.  JS. Brownrigg is driving quite a nice  looking ranch horse nowadays, which  came in from Cranbrook one day this  week,  The attention of gentlemen looking  after the highways is called to a couple  of bad washouts, one at Hamilton's  and the other near the Palmer ranch.  Water running down the road has  worn a very dangerons hole at the  latter point and parties driving in the  dark are liable to have ahorse break a  -leg in it.  The hew barn on the Cartwright  ranch is getting along to completion,  the roof being put on this week. It  is a roomy structure, approximately  35 by 80feet, with hiproof.  Another bit of building worth noting is an addition H. A. Dodd is junt  finishing to his house,' which more  than doubles its shuiurid gives him ono  of the most comfortable homos in this  section.

Owing to  some untoward cii;cumstances he was  unable ro take his medical course as  anticipated when he left here at  Christmas.  The basket social and dance on Saturday night wuh a decided success.  From the first the bidding was brisk,  and it did not take long to dispose of  the 20 baskets. Prices ranged from  $1.85 to $4, bringing in a total of  $01.85. The baskets were all works  of art���������some of them very original  ideas. As an added attraction there  was a short concert at the beginning  of tho evening consisting of two  dialogue**, threo solos and a recitation  by Pte. H. Piggott of tho Forestry  Draft, which wero good, indeed.  There was a good crowd, splendid  music, and everyone had an enjoyable  time.  John Miller had the bad lutjk-to lose  a fine two-yerr old mare dn Saturday  morning. It was a bad case of staggers, death coming in spite of the bes^t  attention given as soon as the trouble,  was noticed. $200 would be a modest  valuation of the dead animal.  Andy Matthews returned from Trail  the early part of the week, and expects to remain here for some weeks.  The coke sfeortage is limiting operations at the smelter andin consequence  business generally is not nearly so  huYnminff as formerly,.

Tho i^untluaMou ia divided into  throo parts: Practical questions  (written tost); Practical < questions  (oral); and Experience and Education.  Tho oxwiuh. will consist mainly of  question* on logging, entitling, surveying, forest-production, etc.  It has been practically decided to  clone op the Kaslo Club, ao that institution has boon facing a deficit  ovory month for some time past.

Canyon City young people were  considerably in evidence at the  soldiers dance at Creston on Tuesday  night. Neither bad roads or Lent cau  keep our people away from big doings  like this���������at any point in  the Valley.  Mr and Mrs. G. Leach and Mr. and  Mrs. H. Young were at Creston on  Monday night for the at home the  Masonic Lodge there gave in honor of  Major Mallandaine and Pte. H. Young  of the Forestry Draft. To show their  appreciation the lodge made a present  to each, Hilton receiving a fountain  pen.  About a dozen of the younger  generation were at Wynndel for the  box social and dance on Saturday last.  There was a brisk demand for the  lunch boxes brought by the ladies  from here, that of Miss Flossie White  selling at $3 25���������almost top price-  Word has just been received that  Harry Browning, who worked for  Huscroft Bros, about six years ago,  was killed in tho fight in Franco somo  timo in September. Ho enlisted at  Watroufl, Sask., boing tho first man  from thero to sign up.  Tho Company will have potatoes  and to spare for next season's mill und  camp crows. Tho 13 acres next to the  Young ranch io to bo planted to spuds.  It has already produced flvo corps of  buy, going 2J tons to the acre eyery  trip.  A. C. Dovo of Nelson, school inspector for Kootonay, was a visitor  horo tho oarly part of tho wook.  We understand his visit had to do  with enlarging tho present school  building so an to provide proper ������ic-  oornmo:!.*it!o*n for the- \M-y,o uunihcr of  pupils attending an woll hg securing a  second toucher, Misa McLean having  altogether too many pupils to handle  satisfactorily.

Belanger, who  has his team-hauling the 30 and 35-  foot  poles  recently purchased from  W. A. Pease.  But for the prompt arrival and good  work of Messrs. Sutcliffe and John  Miller one of the milch cows on the  Matthews ranch would have died on  Monday. It was taken with a second  attack of inflammation in ten days,  but a mustard plaster treatment and  a good supply of drugs rightly administered saved the day.  The young people are having a busy  time of it socially just at present, with  a dance at Wynndel on Saturday, and  one at Creston on Tuesday, aud still  another carded for Monday night.  BS&t tho Mg&twiess  First definite word as to tho arrival  in France of the 300 boxes of apples  Creston Red Cross ladies sent overseas  lato last full came to hand this week,  when M. J. Boyd got an acknowledgment direct from the trenches over  the signature of Lieut.-Col. Elmer W.  Jones of tho 21st Canadian Battalion,  who writes that the apples wero excellent, arrived in splendid condition  and ���������evefro ranch appreciated by tho  men. Thoso wore somo Wagners,  from tho James Cook orchard, which  wore specially paokod for the long  journoy.  Mood Moro Room  A. C. Dovo of Nelson, public school  inspector for East Kootenay,. was a  wook-ond visitor horo. Ho wns at  Canyon City thin week invost.gating  school conditions. Miss McLeod, tho  toachor, has an attendance of almost  40 pnptln, altogether too many for a  x-iik'tu bcliooj, and unless somo way is  dovtaed to lessen the attendance another room will have to bo built, as  woll as a second teacher secured.  Forestry Draff is  On Army Rations  Next to the scarcity of hay and the  probable date of the arrival of a little  pasture feed on the flats, the all absorbing topic of conversation is tbe  date of the departure of the Forestry  Draft.  Recruiting for this corps stopped on  Saturday when the company was  slightly over the 125 men, and still a  few more skilled woodsmen to come  in when required.. These latter are  expected to be more than sufficient to  make up any losses there will be when  the final medical board gives the men  another &nd last examination.  The notable feature of camp life this  week -is the putting of the soldiers on  rations. Hitherto some of the men  have been living at. home, while the  others were going lt family style &t  the armory with Chef Fraser in charge  of the larder and cooking. Now the  men are down to regulation army fare.  -Eyery man gets his allotted amount  ofctHe eatables served���������and no more  andn^.eps���������and if extras are wanted  H^^iria available if he puts up the  p^^u*"- While the variety available  is not' so extensive as under Chef  Fraser'sregime the fare is tne sort to  enable a man tb do a good day's work  on; with'-tittle li^Jihccd of indigestion.  Under the .new arrangement, too. the  militia department pays all. th* expense as to rent, fuel, ������*tc, which  previously had to be made out of the  60 cents a day the men contributed for  three meals.  With the dental expert active it is  hardly necessary to say that some of  the men are getting along on a soup  and soft food diet .vevx J^ra^y,.-pD,  aeeeOT^rot^"*iostpg^^Si5:their teeth-y-ia';.;_  some^^, aiid1 nearly^ a||; pf!.i4iemi in  others, ~' Dentist Westwood js through  with fch������ ^tras^o**s3 sad.is sow^ busy  putting in fillings andnaaking sketches  of the mouths on which/ sketches the  artiflcal teeth plates are built at the  coast.  Three of the men who have-had the  rank of corporal since going on duty  were this week raised to the rank of  sergeant. They are Corps. Watson,  Crookston and B'ack.  Capt. Mallandaine left on Tuesday  on what  he hopes will be his final  inspection trip for the 107th Regiment,  He will visit Fernie,  Morrissey, Nelson, Bonnington and Trail.   At the  former place he  anticipates being relieved of command of the 107th, Judge  Forin of Nelson taking that command.  The men are a few days late in getting their flcst-of-the month pay this  trip.    Work   Point   Barracks, headquarters for militia affairs in   B.C..  was burned to thc, ground about  a  week ago and in the blaze the pay v  sheets for tho Forestry Draft went up  in smoke. 'Aduplicate was immediate  ely forwarded aud tho finance thus  requisitioned  is expected along any  day now.   The flro has brought much  extra work to  tho oflleo staff, which  has boen added to for the occasion, its  copies of all the correspondence, etoi.  had to be made and sent on for fyhng  purposes.  Tho Draft appreciates a big donation  of cooking from tho Presbyterian  Ladies' Aid���������tho surplus from the at  homo of Friday night.

He had arrived within sight of the  little rural town of Marsh Dutton,  which lay in a straggling patch at the  feet of the hill which be had just  climbed, when he became aware of  vicinity of one of thc members  of the gang  of blackmailers.  Thc coarse, husky laugh of     Pad-  \. the  grocer, struck upon  liis ear,  and standing at  thc side of the road.  villi   ins   feet   wide     apart   and     his  hands   behind   his   back,   he   saw   tho  man between a couple of his cronies.  Paddon  was   rather  tipsv,     and     oc-  u.   :..k:i~...j.  "Good evening, Sir Penywern  1 radescant, hope you're feeling pretty well after the general clearing up  you've had up at the Hall tonight,"  said Paddon, who was not. sober  enough to be discreet.  Sir Penywern was in two minds as  to whether he should throw him in*o  the hedge, but Paddon had just  sense enough to suspect this, and he  suddenly retreated behind the persons of two of his friends, and bawled out his further remarks from behind that-effective rampart.  "Funny thing hcr ladyship didn't  turn up to see the body taken out!  But she's not been wasting her time,  you bet! You may jog along at your  b(.'*t pace, Sir Penywern Tradescant,  but you won't catch up with her.  I'll be bound she's reached Dutton  before you. She was hiding about  in the copse down at the bottom a  few minutes ago. I saw her myself, Very interesting all these dis-  c.iverii's must be for her ladyship.  Ha, ha! Ta-ta, Sir Penywern, by-  bye!    Good-night!"  There were some words in this  long, twaddling insulting harangue  which struck terror into Sir Peny-  v,em's heart.  So Daphne had not had the  courage and the firmness to keep hcr  word, but had, if this rascal's report  was'to be trusted, gone into Marsh  l.'mtlon herself in the hope of finding  hcr ful hcr aud warning him to escape,  now lhat discovery wa.s close at his  heeds.  Of cjisr.se, tho word of Paddon,  unsupported, would not have weigh-  id a feather with liim. But the men  witii hiin glanced down the lull as  il they too had seen Daphne, ana  alas! lo judge by what lie knew, Sir  Penywern could not but feel it was  only too probable that hcr fears had  made her break hcr  word to him.  Left  alone,   hc   could   but   suppose  that  she  hail  suddenly  been    carried  away  by   lier  impulses,   thai  slie  had  stolen out to the town  to try to find  her   father,  and   lo   warn   him   of  ihv  danger  in   whicli  lie  stood   since   the  di ������������������'.���������overy of  tlu*  body  of   Kallibouo.  \\Iii.r>:  would ,-hc  e-.o?

As the baronet came up, one person touched another, and there caine  a sudden hush upon the liUIe. gathering, which began at once to melt  away, betraying thus what the subject of their excited conversation hael  been.  John Pent looked guilty when Sir  .Penywern addressed him, and his  sister made a dive for the shop door,  where, however, shc waited when  Sir Penyweru's first words struck  upon  her  ear.  "Good evening-, Pent. Is your  lodger, Webling, al home, de> you  happen to know?"  "Pin sure I can't say for certain,  sir," replied little dry John Pent, as  he subsided at once into the shy, de-  piccatory manner with wliich he always  treated  his  customers.

"He   has  a latch-key, ami  goes  iu  aud  out by  the   side  door,  but     I  think   I   heard  I the eloor go some time back.    I'll go  i up and see,  though.

Sir I'cnywern, still acting on bold  lines, found theni the best. The stationer looked interested, aud was  plainly ready to help his important  patron if hc could.  (To Be Continued.)

On the occasion of their departure  let us see to it that the sendoff far  outdoes, in the matter of providing  everything possible for their comfort on their cross-continent travel,  the fine line of hospitality dispensed during their sojourn with us.  Peanut Politics  The appointment of J, H. Doyle  of Creston as sheriff for Kootenay  has stirred up some little discussion  in the legislature at Victoria.  Opposition leader Bowser seizing  the incident to make out a case  against the government on the  "No Patronage" plank of the  platform on which they stumped  the country last .summer.  The    Conservatives   argue   that  IwnuRe ���������'���������ne. Sergt. Quin, a returned (soldier, who lives   at   a point on  Kootenay Lulu*-, was not given tho  position,  the Brewster administration must   be adjudged guilty of a  wry   heinous breach   of its "down  with th'.* patronage" talk.   While it  is quite true thai   several   petitions  signed by residents ;i   points in tho  Kooteimy    were   sent   on    to    tho  attorney   general      recommending  that    Quin   receive    thi'.    uppoint-  liking.  as in other directions it is not  customary to look gift horses in the  mouth; or in times of stress to  decline a gift of $5 on the plea that  you need $10.  And  the  government's  decision  to split up the positions  it has to  offer on the 50-50 basis (competency  always essential) should   be  about  the right proportion.    While these  returned heroes have   made   a considerable  sacrifice  in   the cause of  empire,   there  are  a   lot   of other  people who have   also  made  sacri-'  fices in other directions���������and some  of  these   latter   would   have   been  perfectly willing to have taken the  same course as our soldier boys had  age   and   medical   examiners   permitted.  Most  residents  of  Creston   will  not need   to   be   told   that had the  authorities   permitted   the   gentleman who has been named as sheriff  would have been amongst the first  to go overseas, and that  he   would  ! have served with credit   to himself  ' and Canada no ono doubts in view  of the   prominence ho  aohievod in  more than a dozen   years   with the  Jioyal      North      West     Mounted  Police, and including active service  iu the .Roil Rebellion in 1885.  Regardless   of    tho   undeserved  ment,   the   government,    must   at, aspersions east upon him, sololy on  least be commended   that  while it j account  of  his being a hotolman,  i'iiih-d to give Quin the  position his  the    provincial    p-ovenimo-et   have.  friends   would  have   liked   him  t,o I miide   n wise choice   in   naming J.

Major    Mallandaine,   O.C.    of  the  Forestry Draft,   then ��������� came  forward  to.unveil & shrine in.memory of those  men from the Valley who had been  killed  during  the   war.     He   spoke  briefly to the people  present, explaining the object of the shrine,  which  had.been erected  by the officer's and  non-commissioned    officers    of ; the  Draft.   The major did not regard the  shrine as altogether permanent,   but  expressed the hope that one day the  citizens    of  Creston    migh   erect  a  monument of more  lasting material.  At the conclusion of the unveiling  the   band rendered the national anthem,  after   which the troops   were  marched    out   and    dismissed.   The  shrine, which is of wood, is of a very  attractive    design,    worked  out   by  Major  Mallandaine,   and   the handiwork of Ptes. Thompson,  Harkness  and   Reed.   On it are inscribed  the  names of the nine Creston men who  have    already    made    the    supreme  sacrifice.   The   lettering    is    a   neat  gothic,   the   work   of  Sergt. Crowe,  r������������.vmast.Rt* of the 107th.    So  far as we  can learn this is the first tablet of the  sort erected in   Canada,  though they  are   very   numerous   in   France   and  Britain.  It is proposed to erect a neat fence  around it. and should the death list of  Valley volunteers increase the .names  of the added fallen will be inscribed  with the others as they occur.

Ebbutt returned to Creston  on Friday after a business trip of some  three aud a half months, most of  which time was spent in the south-  and southwestern states. Leaving  Creston on December 14th he visited  Moose Jaw, Winnipeg and Toronto,  a little later on going to Detroit,  Mich. From Detroit the next stops  were at Chicago and Kansas City,  after which came LosAngeles, Calif.,  where, he spent' some weeks before  calls were made at San Diego, Long  Beach and Santa Monica in the same  state.  Some time was also spent in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. He  wasv much impressed with the immense agricultural wealth of Arizona  as indicated by the districts already  developed by irrigation ^projects.  However, he says the changes wrought  must be seen to be appreciated; the  desert being literally made to blossom  like the rose���������rich alfalfa and grain  fields replacing the 'bone dry' deserts.  After., spending some time in El  Paso, where he saw most of Uncle  Sam's standing army, and in Sun  Antonio ar.d Fort Worth, Texas, be  returned via Denver, Col.. Wyoming  and.Montana. And yet, while date  palms and orange trees are not so  much in evidence here as they are in  the south, Crestoh is a pretty good  place to return to just the same, according to Mr. Ebbutt.  Pretty much on the theory that it is  better to be too early than too iate,  Creston Masonic Lodge tendered two  of its members, Capt. Mallandaine and  Pte..-Hilton Young, who are going  overseas with the Forestry Draft, a  purely Masonic sendoff, in the lodge  rooms on Monday night, to which, of .  course, the wives of members were  also invited.  The fore part of the evening was  devoted to whist, some eight tables of  players participating, and at which  the honors were carried off by Miss  Jane Long and W. G. Watcher.  Before lunch was served the master  of the lodge, John Blinco, in a few  appropriate remarks presented the  soldier-members with a little parting  remembrance, Pte. Young receiving a  fountain pen, and Capt. Mallandaine  a pipe and case. The recipients briefly  thanked the lodge for the much-appreciated souvenirs, and the personal  as well as fraternal goodwill, the gifts-  indicated. A number of the other'  Forestry men, who are members of  the craft and were among the invited  guests, also spoke feelingly of the  splendid hospitality Creston people  had displayed thus far during their  stay in town.  A splendid supper was served, and  after lunch a couple of hours dancing  followed, the Crestou orchestra, under  the leadership of T. E. Goodwin, supplying the best of music for the hop,  as well as a nicely an-anged programme of selections while cards were in  progress.  There was a verv lar^e turnout of  members of the lodge as well as of  craftsmen resident in the Valley who  have not yet affiliated, and the gathering yery fully appreciated the efforts  of the entertainment committee,  Fast Masters Reid.

Few  vocalize, however, that the navy has  t6 face entanglements of a different  sort which are just as> treacherous as  those tiie army has to break through.  An up-to-date map of thc North  sea, stith as thc one in the chart  room of a British warship, is dotted  with red marks which arc added to  daily. They indicate the presence  of mines, some British laid and  some turned loose from German U-  - boats. These are the "barbed!, wire"  ot tbe sea, and a nastier thing 'to run  against, man, with all his ingenuity  in devising methods of destruction,  has neevr contrived. One need exert no effort of imagination to justify the comparison, for the minefield answers just the same purpose  afloat as the barbed wire entanglement does on shore.  Without it  sea  war    would be    a  -very different matter from what it is  now, or at least, in the narrow waters  where  all    the    most important  fighting must take place.  The mine fields limit the n'ovc-  ments of the belligerent forces. Even  tlic British . grand fleet, master  though it be of tbe seas, cannot go  wherever it pleases because of the  mine fields scattered about the waters. Whenever the sea German  wants to *Yiig himself in" at a base  hc drops a mine field in front of it,  and behind this protection proceeds  with -his task, well knowing that no  British admiral would be so foolish  as to play thc enemy's game by taking his ships into such a dangerous  area. ���������  , And they arc not little mine fields  that the Germans put down. Some  of those tbe3r have laid in the North  sen arc quite the biggest "entagle-  ments" of the kind ever constructed,  containing, as they do thousands upon  thousands of floating death traps.  No hostile ship can get through a  mine .field unless it knows the secret  channel, and .where such exist the-J-  are continually being changed in  order to prevent any of our vessels  discovering and using them.  Experience has taught the German  that hi cannot rely for safety even  on his naval "barbed wire" ��������� unless  he spends a great deal of time keeping it intact. British submarines  are very inquisitive arid have a habit of "poking their way" through/ his  thorniest "entanglements," which  gives the German many uncomfortable  moments.  Time and lime have our U-boats  crept through his "barbed wire" and  dared the German in his lair; so  much so that he never feels wholly  secure against them.. Surface vessels, however, are quire another matter. For them to attempt "jumping" a minefield would mean almost  certain destruction.  Barbed wire erected against troops  can be destroyed by artillery. The  kind used at sea . cannot be swept  away; in this fashion. A squadron  might bombard a. minefield until its  guns were worn out and the "entanglement" would still be impassable.  Minefields play the. part of concealed snares as well as protections.  Often enough have the Germans  tried to. entice the British ships into  them, though never once have they  succeeded in doing this. Numbers  of such tra.ps were laid for John Jeliicoe, and he fell into none of-them.  In fact, the only ships lost in German minefields have been, the Germans' awn.  By bearing in mind what the presence of these death-bestrewn areas  does in the way of "roping off" cruising grounds one, becomes thc better,  able to understand certain naval  happenings which might otherwise  seem a bit puzzling. Such, for ex^  ample, as the periodic "comings out"  of the German high seas fleet. Every  now and again it is. reported by Be.--  Vm that "Our high seas fleet went  ont into the North sea yesterday  nnd returned again without . meeting  the  en c m yy ""N.  For all "practical purposes two  fleets might as well have a stretch  of dry land between tlicm as a mine  field, since the one is" no-more passable to ships than thc other, and so  long as the German high seas fleet  keeps within the shelter of ils miles-  M-ide minefields, it may continue lo  "come out" with impunity.  Hov? tbe Germans Were  Win a  Victory, But Didn't  "Our first aim was to overthrow  France quickly and force hcr to  make peace. It is probable that "such  a peace would have been very favorable to France^ for it was to our interest to reduce' the number of our  foes. Had this . plan succeeded we  could have turned immediately and  adopted the same tactics towards  Russia with every prospect of success. We could then, in favorable  conditions, have concluded the final  peace with England, whose forces  would have been left disarmed on the  continent. As/ however, we could  not hope to overcome England's naval supremacy, this peace, like the  fust arranged with France, would  have had to be in the nature of a  compromise. This entire program,  brilliantly as it was begun, collapsed  before the gates of Paris at the battle of the Marne, which was by no  means a" tactical victory but certainly  a great strategic success for the  French."���������Prof. Meinecke in thc  Frankfurter Zeitung".

"This communication was  received, however, in an unexpected  manner. The kindly expression disappeared from the Field Marshal's  face and, with a grim look, he motioned to tbe sister to leave the  ward, and thereupon gave the following order: "That sister will be immediately-transferred "to another pos  A nurse will comc here who does not  speak a word of English.

It shows  assurances issued and paid for in  cash during 1916 of a total of over  $42,750,000, the largest^ amount of  new business ever written, by any  Canadian Life company in any year.  Assurances in force now total over  $2S0,000,000, Assets increased by  over $8,500,000 to practically $83,-  000,000, the largest"' assets ever ^ al  tamed by a Canadian company. Cash  income totalled nearly $18,500,000, an  increase of over $2,500,000 over that  of 1915. Payments to policyholders  exceeded $7,500,000, bringing total  payments to policyholders since organization  to over $60,250,000.  The record of the Sun Life of Canada for 1916 reflects thc highest credit upon the directors and officers of  the company and .should be equally  satisfactory to the company's policyholders.  People  are  Learning  that there is  Greater  Prosperity  in  the'  Pursuit of Idealized Agriculture and Appreciate Higher  Standards, both Materially and Moraliy  ���������o  .  Speaking of municipal support and!  control of agricultural societies before the convention of Agricultural  Societies in Winnipeg, S. ll. Green- .  way, director of the Extension Division of the University of Saskatchewan, said in part;.  m "The ideal service unit of the agricultural society is the rural municipality, and it should be municipally  supported and controlled," said Mr.  Greenway. "The society should  make a complete.rural survey of its  territory which should be a guide in  its community effort. No community can have a proper understanding  of its needs without a thorough and  careful  survey of its  field.  "No society will ever lack public  support which renders effective public service. And this without government grants. Government grants  are defensible only where they encourage endeavor. Payment of special grants in the form of hand-outs  is indefensible.  "Of the 118 societies which have  been chartered in the province of  Saskatchewan, all but four are justifying their existence. I feel that we  could, if the financial resources and  the staff were advisable, make the  agricultural society work tenfold  more effective at once. As I have  noted, we have been able to do excellent work through the medium of  no less than 18 unorganized societies.  Besides this, we have been working-  more or less systematically with no  less than .40 Grain Growers' associations in the last two years. The  number of these organizations is  gradually increasing.  "I mention the fact in order to indicate that there is a great work for  the agricultural societies to do, and  if they are not prepared to step in.  and do it, other organizations arc  alive to the opportunity.  "The good that agricultural societies are doing is by no means to be  tabulated. It is a constant invisible  growth,' and it touches at least 250-  000 of our people each year. TJn-  cqnsciously a great mass of our people are being led to appreciate higher standards both materially and morally. Thoy are learning not only  ���������that there is greater prosperity in  the pursuit of- idealized agriculture,  but they are being caught up with  the creative instinct, and are learning to appreciate agriculture for the  many beauties^ which it unfolds and  to love it for its own sake."  Mr. Greenway stated that thero  were 118 chartered organization*? in  Saskatchewan. They had an average membership of 150. Last ycar  .they  raised $390,000.
