Drs. Vsgneux and Borden of Nelson  were here on Saturday and Sunday  conducting the final medicaKexamination and of the full quota of 125 men  who were given the final test only six  were turned back "as medically unfit.  Their places have all been filled by  men who had been assured places on  the Draft but who, owing to pressing  business matters, were uot asked to  ���������report until the last few days ot*  training.  The half dozen men who were unable  lo qualify will not be lost to the  militia authorities. They will be turned oVer to '-J" Unit at Esquimalt, and  will be available for guard duty or any  other service for which they are  adapted.  Sergt.

At "the Moriissey  camp there are some 250 aliens interned and the staff of guards alone at  that point totals close tu 100.  There is still a few of the men without uniforms, which have got lost  somewhere between Victoria and  Creston. However, 'the fellow with  no uniform will have company in his  misfortune in those of the Draft who  had all their teeth extracted by dentist  Lieut.

Maurer, the draft's  boxing champion, has been given the  rank of acting quarter-master sergeant. The Draft paraded full strength  on Wednesday afternoon, when  Wadds, the photographer from Trail,  took a group picture of tho corps.  It is expected that the Draft will go  direct from Creston to Block ville,  Ontario, where they will be merged  into a Forestry Battalion and proceed  overseas With very llttlo delay.  If sufficient notice is given thu Draft  will get a great sendoff by Croston  citizens arid a generous supply ��������� of  'extras' in the way of eats and smokus  will doubtless be in evidence.

His shot, while not fatal  so crippled the deer that when it got  into one of the sloughs it could not  make a getaway, while owing to the  none too safe ice and open water the  Indian was badly handicapped in roping bis game and hauling it to safety.  He finally accomplished it, however,  and with the aid of * a- hunting knife  finally put the animal out of its misery.

Atkinson, A.M.C., headed an energetic  committee of the Forestry Draft in  showing ' their appreciation of the  hospitality extended the soldiers during their stay in town, by giving the  citizen:; a complimentary dance in tho  Auditorium on.Tuesday night. Although .the affair was arranged on a  half-day's notice and followed the  Easter Monday hop so closely, thore  was a very large turnout of all classes  and one. of the very best dances of the  season was provided. Tne ladies supplied the refreshments which were  served buffet lunohcon fashion all  evening, giving those in attendance  dancing without letup from 0 until 2  a.m., with tho pleasure of taking supper without the inconveniouces that  invariably obtain at functions as  largely attended as was this one.

The outstanding feature of the  session was the undertaking to see  that the departing Forestry Draft got  as royal Sendoff as time, finances and  available citizen effort will permit, S.  A. Speers and R. S. Bevan are the  committee on arrangements. They  will look after decorations at the  station, drum up donations of smokes,  fruit,-eatables, etc., etc., and lead in������  the cheering when the parting address  which President Henderson and  Secretary Hayes will prepare, has  been read and replied to. The services  of the Creston band will also be enlisted fco supply a short musical programme while the men are entraining and  pulling out.of the station.  At the request of some of the Wyn-  del citizens the board will use what  effort it can to haye the department  stock fche stream above Duck Creek  with fche most likely variety of trout,  arid urge them to see to it fchat the  C.P.R. puts a fish ladder in its culvert  at that point so that the fish can get.  up and down stream without let-or  hindrance.  Divisional Supt. Harshaw of the  C.P.R. wrote that the company would  investigate the water problem . at the  Creston stock corral and if feasible the  water would be piped into it and a tap  installed.

We must  therefore, prevent thc plant fron.  producing seed kill thc perennial root  stalk and sow absolutely clean seed  grain if "we arc to control this terrible pest.  Various  methods    of  attack-    have  been advocated such as crowding out  thc   weed   by   a   persistent   perennial,  smothering the plant with tar    paocr,  straw, manure, or by a quickly growing  crop,  and  starving  the  plant by  preventing it    from     forming    green  leaves.     The   crowding   out     method  often  fails because thc thistle proves  the i to  be  more  persistent  than  the  crop  The rustling was louder, and j employed to displace it.    The smoOV  away.

' Many authorities advocate the starva  tion plan or summerfallow as by far  thc best for eradicating this troublesome  weed.  Plough six to eight inches deep iu  the autumn, if possible, b-ut if press-arc of work prevents autumn  ploughing, then plough the same  depth about the middle of June. After a few days, brgiu the use of thc  duck-foot cultivator crosswise of the  land and repeat whenever the tiniest  shoots arc ready to show, until the  land freezes in autumn.

APR. 33  A Real Help  Tl,Q  S-JIV  -4?*-    i-  jm* lr       *~m*u~m +  what looks like a piece of real good  luck iu another direction. The  Dominion Express Co. has just  given assurance that tor 1917 it  will allow unloading priveleges at  three points on a direct route for  soft fruits shipped in carload lots.  Hitherto this has been denied and  the only unloading allowed was at  the point uf destination. This  should work out splendidly for the  Valley shippers in that such points  as Cranbrook, Fernie, Macleod,  Lethbridge and Medicine Hat for  instance, any one of which could  hardly handle a car nf strawberries  hy itself, can now take advantage  of the carload rate under tho new  arrangement by going in with any  to trust to the kindness of nobody  in particular for his care and keep;  nor on the other hand is the made-  to-be generous relation protected in  any way in seeing to it that the  party whom he has succored spends  such sustenance wisely and is given  full value..  Admitting, as the act does, some  responsibility  on   the  part  of the  province in such matters, it  should  not have  been  impossible  to have  devised something better than this  sluffing off of  the   unfortunates ot*  the   province    onto   the   enforced  tender nierciet*. of unwilling relations.  Making people do  the right thing  in such matters   by   act of  parliament   may   he    quite   correct   in  these degenerate days, but evil and  all as times are isn't  this   new aot  but a further help to the professional  charity   hunter   rather than   to  the deserving  sort   who  refuse to  make  little or   no solicitation  for  help, much less go into a law court  to obtain it.  Field Seeds���������that its, the reliable kinds���������are none too plentiful tnis season, out  we have been fortunate in securing a supply of the very best, though none too  large to meet the season's probable requirements.

According to the act a "sick and  destitute" pel-son shall mean a  person ''in such necessitous circumstances as to be unable to  procure suitable treatment and  medical aid,'_pr physically incapable  uf maintaining himself by his own  exertions."  Fathers and   mothers,  sons and  daughters,  brothers  and sisters (of  the whole or   half blood)   are liable  for     the     maintenance    of     near  relatives who are sick and destitute.  On the complaint on oath of any  person that he   or she is a sick and  destitute   person,   and   has   a near  relative or near relative of sufficient  financial   ability   to   contribute   to  the support of said  sick   aud destitute person, and that   said relative  or relatives   have   been   applied   to  for aud have refused   to contribute  to   the support  of   said    sick   and  destitute person, a  Magistrate may  summon the near relative   or   near  relatives    to   show    cause    why   a  maintenance  ordos   should   not be  made against hiin,   or Iter, or them.  Just, what prompted the attorney -  general   to   bring   in    tins   bit   of  almost freak   legislation   it   would  be interesting to know,     Generally  speaking when a   person is in hard  luck   their   relations   are   tho   very  last people they g1*   to;   and   by the  s.ime token worth-going-to relations  do not   usually require order.'"*, from  justices of the peace to   make them  their brothers' or relations' keepers  in times of sickness or misfortune.

On top of all this the premier is  having trouble with two of his  supporters from Vancouver, Messrs.  Mcintosh and Cowper. And Mr.  Mcintosh has not been backward  in stating why he witholds his  entire support from Premier Brewster either.  He claims to have discovered  that Mr. Brewster is, to some extent, controlled by what  he   terms  Brewster came into power with  the aid of many hitherto-Conservative votes.

Mr. Mcintosh's "discovery"  causes no surprise in the interior.  Ever since the Brewster cabinet  was announced Liberals in those  parts knew that some party or  parties unknown had turned the  premier aside from his oft-repeated  promise that the ministers would  be drawn so as to give every part  of the province equal representation.  And when Hon. William Sloan  was named minister of mines in  preference to .John Keen, or some  other member from the mining  parts of the province, moro than a  few made protty good guossos as  to who "tho gang" were���������tho invariable snriniwi being that the  men interested in tho Vancouver  ���������Sun were the gentlemen who were  doing the dictating.

In   a dual   capacity   the  sergeant  also   bears  striking testimony   to  the   accuracy    of the  old   saying  about some  are  born   great, some  achieve greatness   and   some have  greatness  thrust  upon  them.    Of  course  the  greatness   thrust upon  liim is not quite on a par with that  which he  achieved  on   the field of  Flanders, still in these dull prosaio  days, while sentimental fame is not  absolutely   valueless,   for   a  rainy  day,  for instance,   tho substantial  reward   ovidonoed    in   a   monthly  government pay cheek���������whioh any  bank cashes without charge���������must  he given   the  pre-eminence  in any  roturned-floldicrs' welfare schome of  things.  It-has  been   suggested   that all  this trouble over gathering in school  taxes could   he  avoided if   the collector of   these  rates   was  located  at Creston  instead of   Nelson as is  now the case.    Provided the gentleman assigred this  work   would go  out in person   and  dun   the delinquents, and possibly take payments  in instalments if needful,   the plan  might help a little,   but not otherwise.    The great trouble with most  people   here     is   that  they   have  numerous     pressing   liabilities   to  meet and seeing a paternal government is not insistent on taxes being  met, naturally these are left till the  last���������which  means in   some eases  non-payment for a matter  of four  or five years.

On February 1st $1,300,  000,000 was deposited in savings  accounts, a gain of some $300,000,-  000 over the same date in 1915,  and this in spite of thc fact that in  the two intervening years $214,-  000,000 had been invested in two  other war loans and other Dominion war --investment issues. Jamming these figures all together it  means that in  24 months Cauadi-  m"*  ans havo increased their savings  accounts a matter of half a billion  dollars. And withal, loans are as  hard to si euro right now na  ovor they wore, and the interest  rate a little higher possibly. With  all this money available, aud the  banks shouting for increased agricultural development tho securing  of a paltry million or two to reclaim Kootonay Flats looks comparatively oaHy.

Out tea  statement of valuation shall be filed  in order to ascertain whether or not  thc society has maintained its degree  of actuarial solvency. The object of  the Act is, that where a society-  shows at the end of the first three  year term that has not maintained  its degree of actuarial solvency that  tliere shall be such an increase in  rates as vvill insure that the society  shall maintain the degree of solvency  which it had on the 31st of December, 1917, or improve that position.  Tn view of this leg-islation the  Canadian Order of Foresters decided  not to wait until the 31st December.  1917, to ascertain the facts required  by the Act, and, shortly after the  Act was passed in 1916. this society  tmtaj-red Mr. Abb I-audis of Nashville, Tennessee, for the purpose of  investigating its actuarial standing as  of the 31st December, 1915. Mr.  Lardis is one of thc leading- actuaries  on the American continent today, and  is so recofi-nucd in thc insurance  world. Tfis experience extends ovcr  a term of twenty-five years., eighteen  years of which bas been devoted exclusively to Fraternal  Insurance Associations. In tlusc  eislitccn years Mr. Landis has  advised _ with _ one ( hundred and  eighty-six societies, six of these societies beinc: Canadian . He has also  been for fifteen years on the Committee of Statutory Legislation of  tlte National Fraternal^ Concrrcss, and  hits been prominently identified with  the drafting of all hills dealing witii  Fraternal Insurance legislation. Mr.  Landis is also thc author of eight  hooks on insurance, which arc ac-  *:cptcd as authorities today.  The Actuary has found thai during  its whole experience, of thirty-six  years, the Canadian Order of Foresters has had an exceptionally favo---  ������hle mortality experience. ISernusr  of this exceedingly favorably mortality experience, and the- large amount  of accumulated funds, Mr. Landis  has been able to prepare miMMunllv  favorable monthly assessment rales.  v.

New Railway Enactment in England  Has Curious Effect on Fares  The new railw.iy enactment iii  England, enjoining a 50 per cent,  rise on all railway fares, has had  the curious effect of making the single fare between two adjoining stations in Lancashire 2d., whilst thc  return fare is 41-2d. A recent writer, although loath to spoil the joke,  supplies the explanation. Before the  rise of 50 per cent., thc single fare  between the two stations used   to bc  1 l-2d., and the return fare 3d. # An  addition of 50 per cent, to the single  fare   would   have   brought   it   up     to  2 1-4d., but railway companies long  ago set their faces against farthings.  Tliccbonrd of trade, however, sets its  face against more than a 50 per cent,  rise. So the single fare was fixed at  2d., and merely in order to maintain a claim to its just rights, the  railway company fixed the fare for  return at 4 1-2d.���������Christian Science  Monitor.

It is  a survey of the military position in  Europe based upon a knowledge of  the facts and factors, many of which  h; ve not been made public hiflierto.  The statement says:  "Britain and her allies are looking  forward with complete confidence to  thc opening of what they regard as  the final stage of the war, the fighting season of 1917. To form an  opinion it is necessary to examine  tbe salient facts of the war.  "In launching war upon Europe the  Central Powers believed that one  plan, and one plan only, would win  for them the immense stake for  which they were prepared to play���������  thc mastery of Europe. That plan  was the swift destruction of their  enemies-one at a time.  "Accordingly, the first step was to  smash France; the second, to concentrate . practically ' the whole  strength of their victorious armies,  upon the task of delivering such a  blow to Russia as would leave that  power helpless and at their mercy.  The entry of Britain into the war  vas on ihe whoie not expected at  first; but in any case this would not  have modified the plan, since it -was  perfectly understood that' Britain  could not put more than 150,000 iner.  into the field if she did decide . to  come lo the assistance of France.  "'pl-jr.     ftmr{t,tt-    Ttrrttrftf}        ftnpf        fnrlJrncf  correct, but it also proved Germany  ���������incapable of accomplishing vh?.t  shc thought she could accomplish  despite the fact that no treaty rights  or scruples of any kind were permitted to hamper her movements, and  that in numerical strength material  re*-ources and complete preparedness  the odds 'were overwhelmingly in her  favor. Despite all the odds the first  move of the Central Powers was de-  .fcatcd in 1914, and very thoroughly  defeated. The. second move began  early in 1915, and had definitely failed by the autumn of that year."  After reviewing in detail the strategical moves to date on the various  fronts, it is remarked in the statement:  "Strategically considered, Germany's initial- failures have meant  one long succession of failures of the  Central Powers, thc end of which  must necessarily prove militarily fa-  t������l to them, though that fact may  veil mean, in a wider sense their  ultimate salvation���������the Allies are  lighting to secure the peace of thi*  world���������a consummation as much to  be desired by thc deceived and misled people of thc Central Powers as  by everyone else."  "The statement concludes:  "In  the last ycar    the Allies have  Small Irrigation '  Projects are Successful  Result in Better Farms and Improv- ���������  - ed Living Conditions, Says  Expert -  .

In  everything malfing for success in war  they are vastly richer and better  equipped than they were a year ago.  During the same period the Central  Powers have definitely abandoned all  plans of conquest, have suffered a  steady deterioration of resisting  power. Aware of -all this, and greatly  needing the means of spurring their  jaded and weary peoples, they made  overtures for peace'; If by any odd  chance these should be accepted  there would be some hope of evad-  ing the just penalties of lawlessness  and criminal aggression. If a flat  rejection came it would bring, n>st,  a whip for their jaded people, and  secondly, a sufficient means to ciose  the mouths of any critic of further  lawlessness and  criminality.  "The submarine threat followed  naturally and in itself presents the  most naked confession yet offered of  the Central Powers' recognition of  failure of their own grandiose* plans.  Tl e threat would never have been  r.'ade but for Germany's recognition  of her inability to obtain a military  victory. It would seem that Britain  and her Allies have already almost  got this menace sufficiently in hand  The danger has reached' its climax,  while the measures for coping with  it are being extended every hour.  "Actually,.that remark fits precisely the entire outlook for 1917. Thc  growing strength oi the /V.ies faces  the declining strength of the Central  Powers. The d.ite of the end cannot  yet be fixed; its nature *** inevitable.  It will finally extinguish the Central  Powers' menace to the peace of the  world."  German-American Humorist  D. Thomas Curtin, the American  who has been visiting Germany for  the Northciiffe press of London on  the strength of introductions supplied by Professor Hugo Munsterburg, said in New York the other  day:  "Rather a 'oke eh to be doinr**  England's -work with the help of  Munsterburg  of  Harvard. '  "When I saw Munsterburg last  spring, he proved to me that peace  treaties would be signed���������peace  treaties all in favor of a victorious  Germany���������in the early summer of  1916. But, today, I understand, he  is predicting an alliance between  Germany, England and the United  States.  "I don't see what right anybody  has to call Mark Twain the leading  American humorist,", he said, "now  that- Hugo Munsterburg has got  himself  naturalized."

S. Dawson, B.A., Sc.  Member American Society Civil Engineers, Member- Canadian Society  Civil Engineers, Chief Engineer  Dept. of National Resources, Calgary, Alta.  Although Mr. Dawson has been connected mainly vvith the big irrigation enterprises of thc C.P 1\. hi  Southern Alberta, he does not over-:  look the advantages of small projects operated by a community of  farmers or even by an individual.  "I have had fifteen years' experience on-what are the largest irrigation projects in Canada," said Mr.  Dawson. "But I am willing to ad  n.k that the smail projects such as  you have in thc immediate vicinity  of Kainloops are quite often more interesting and worthy of fuller consideration than arc the larger projects. These sclicvncs, t������ougii small,  should be considered as one of your  greatest assets.-���������  "The benefits of irrigation show  their results in better farms; improved living conditions; improved soeial  conditions .and better citizenship. If  conducted along proper lines it improves agriculture, saves the soil, inculcates industry, produces prosperity  and should provide for posterity "  Mr Dawson's reference to thc  small irrigation schemes is of particular interest to the farmers of Western Canada, where there are hundreds���������literally thousands���������of creeks  and streams which could be used in  a small way for irrigation purposes.  According to thc opinion of an officer of the Western Canada Irrigation Association the day is eoniintr  when irrigation in Western Canada  will be limited only by tbe amount  of water available. The iucrensinq  interest in irrigation is indicated bv  the fact that thc annual meeting of  the association. in 1917 will be held  in Saskatchewan for the first time  In the past it has always been held  in Alberta or British Coluiubia, bur  this ycar the associatoin will1 meet at  Maple   Creek,   Saskatchewan.  A Sound Institution  _ A neutral who has from time to  time contributed to thc Times interesting articles on conditions in Germany writes to that paper from  Cologne in these terms:  The exasperation produced by the  duration of the war and the increasing absence of nutritious food^ has  now produced much more original  "and independent thinking and talking than I have known in Germany  since the beginning of the war. The  easily led German middle classes do  not know what to makc of the situation, and from the beginning, when  they were told that Germany had  been "'fallen upon," their view of the  war has been an entirely distorted  view. But never have their leaders  been so bitterly critisiscd as during  the last few weeks. Even Hindenburg, the great god Hindenburg, has  been as much abused as Bethmann-  Hollweg. I have heard people here  and there say good things of Count  Zeppelin, but they are not many.  '".there is, however, one great reason, of which you arc probably not  yet aware, why the German people  generally believe in the hope of peace  ���������a. bright hope and an increasing  hope. It is not that they believe in  military victory. It is not that they  believe in victory in the west, where,  indeed, defeat is considered to be  almost-certain. Nor is it the idea  already mentioned that Germany has  only to speak of peace for peace to  comc. It is the fact that the call for  peace  now conies  not  merely    from  politicians, out truiTi trio soiuiers.  Canadian Order of Foresters Has a  Most Enviable Record  The Canadian Order of Foresters  li* ve for years occupied a prominent  position as one of tlic leriding Fraternal Insurance Societies operating  in Canada.  It was instituted in 1879 by -IS8  members who seceded from the  American Order of Foresters. Today  it. has a membership of over 90 '"������������������X),  j which is lhe largest, purely Canadian  membership of any oi* thc fraternal  insurance societies doing business in.  the Dominion.  Thc society has hnd a most successful record and has accumulated  funds, which, at the present time,  amount to between five and :i half  and six million dollars. Last ycar  was apparently one of the most successful #ycars in tlu*: history of the  institution.

It is an open secret that Hindenburg  who has just made his second visit  to the western front, returned profoundly impressed by the fact that  thc politicians must endeavor io  make peace by hook or by crook.  Ihis is not mere gossip. I have the-  tiuth directly from a source which,  as you know, has always proved ao  curate in my previous ���������communications.  As I told you, the area of fighting  on the Somme and before Verdun is  known as "the Grave." The whole  line from Alsace to Ypres is really a  nightmare to the German army.  Every sort of influence and "pull,'1,  governmental, social and financial, is  used to prevent the return of particular regiments and particular officers to the western front, although  the authorities hold out such attractions as superior supplies of food,  shorter intervals in the trenches, and  the amusements, at Lille, Ghent,  Metz and other places, which are  1 rovided in order lo maintain a  morale that has not been so broken  for more than a century. The eastern  army, although it thought that the  capture of Warsaw meant oeace with  Russia, has been able to bear its disappointments because of - its\ various  Ct.tf.ftmf.....'     _2.~.-���������      At- .   >. ."I"... .   ' ,   -"���������v-..voak.a =:i.i.v  .i.e...-.     j.ne western  army has had no successes.  For the hiding of my identity I  never talk to officers who have* returned from the front if I can help  it, but I am always seeing the relatives of officers and hearins- what  they write and say. On the west  general after general has been superseded, and the number of punishments of non-commissioned officers  and men is appalling. What the  losses on the western front have  been nobody knows, but nobody believes the published figures. The'parents of young  have just been informed that he was not taken prisoner on the Somme in July, as thev  bad been told, but that he was killed.  T am constantly hearing of similar  cases. You must sec in the newspapers how indignation about the  censorship peeps out from time to  time, but the indignation is really  much stronger even among officials  than among the newspaper writers  themselves. Nothing that they print  is believed.  My latest touivhas dispelled many  lingering illusions about German  efficiency.    But I have been struck by  one or two of the successful German  devices      for      maintaining      public  spirit. I never could remember more  music or better theatrical    entertainments.    As, I  said  before,    military  bands are everywhere.    There is no  singing now when soldiers leave   for  thc front, and very few people would  take the trouble to see them off wero  it not for the bands.    You will have  noticed  that the output    of  German  books    and    magazines and amusing  papers  has,  if    anything,    increased  during: thc war.      A recent and typical example of the German method*  ���������whieh has the additional advantage  of making a show of German ���������'broad-  mindness"'���������is   the  publication  of an  entirely new edition of Dickens.  Speaking generally, while you in  England seem anxious to dcprcs3  your people hy suppressing anuisc-  menls.^ the German government is  following an opposiie course. They  have a difficult task before them, ana  the next few months vvill be thc most  critical in the history of any nation  unless they are right about submarines.  The German public no longer believes all thc stories that they are  told about submarines���������such reports,  for instance, as that missing long-  di������*tnnee r.uhmarincn have arrived  safely, but that their arrival has been  kept secret hy the government for  excellent rcasouR.
