The sauie speakers' will also derive!**  the same talks at .Erickson school on  Saturday afternoon and evening and  Monday night.  Six speakers are due to appear^and  two of them will speak at each gathering.'Foi-Saturday afternoon M. O.  English vvill discuss "Soils and Crops  ���������Issue," drainage, etc5" while ������L. JS.  Upton will speak "on "Poultry liaising. " The evening session Will be  purely an horticultural one with W.  E. McTaggart, the well-known praiiie  markets commissioner, handling the  topic, "Advertising and Marketing  Fruits," while our friend M. S; Middle-  ton will discuss the "Control of Apple  Scab." Monday's meetings will have  to do with livestock and the speakers  are Dr. A. Knight, on "Livestock  Diseases," and T. A. P. Wiancko on  "Dairying."  With the exception of Mr. McTaggart the speakers are what might be  termed old favorites with "Creston  audiences; men with a reputation for  knowing from practical experience  what they are talking about. As ttt  Mr. McTaggart The Review has no  hesitation in certifying him as competent as the others.  With the Valley- goings stronger  than ever into dairying and the  efforts ��������� he various organizations  interested are making io have brchard-  ists produce only the two better  grades of apples particularly, the talks  'of Messrs. Wiancko and 'Middleton  should prove most timely. And the  latter's efforts will he ably seconded  by Mr. McTaggart iir-"'discussing  marketing problems.

Russell  Leamy, vvho was very severely bandied by the explosion of a shrapnel shell,  on October 8th last, is contained in a  letter from a friend of his , which  reached Creston the: latter part of  February.    The correspondent writes:  "So far as I can learn both from the  doctors and nurses who are attending  Pte. Leamy. he has better than a  fighting chance of pulling through,  but it is going to be a long fight. Pte.  Leamy told me the whole 'his and outs  of t.he affair.; In making the charge,  or rather in moying forward in support, on the morning of October 8tb  be was one of the last of the section  and a big shell burst behind him*."_ A  piece struck him between his shoulder-  blade oh the right 'side, embedding  itself in his right lung, and although  they successfully operated and removed the 'piece of sheb the lung was  really so bcidly torn it was impossible  to remove it.

The blood poison has also  caused a breaking out on the back  Which has also to be lanced, and at  times runs very freely. He is receiving every attention possible, and they  even have him in a tent so thnt he  gets all the fresh air possible, but he  certainly suffers terrible ptiin.  "He said that after beiug hit he got  up and wanted to see how the rest of  the section fared, but collapsed again  in a shell hole. Two German prisoners  who happened along bound him up  and carried him to "a dressing station,  from where, by degrees, he was carried  back hut Wa.s iit least 17 hours before  he got to a casualty clearing station,  and hadn't had the dressings changed  from the time the two Fritzes fixed  him up, so that it is little wonder  blood poisoning followed. Under all  the circumstances ho has done mighty  well. One of the first questions he  asked was as to prospects of his being  fit to be back on deck to start the new  year back on the firing line."  The very latest word from the  hospital ia that he is more than holding his own, and friends hereabouts  hone that his recovery though slow  will be permanent, and that he will be  around in good time and in good shape  to take a. hand in the big drive on  Berlin this year.  The home bf Mr. and Mrs. 0. Hall  at Canyon City was the scene of the  season's most popular wedding_at high  noon on Wednesday, when Rev. M.  W. Lees, assisted by Rey. R. E. Pow,  united in marriage Miss Ethel, only  daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Alfred  Whitehead, with Mr. Walter V. Jackson, of Creston, the ceremony beiug  performed in the presence of a company of about two dozen of the immediate friends of the contracting  parties.  The -young couple were   sponsored  by Mrs.   Whitehead and Mr.  James  j Stocks,  and  the ceremony  was performed   in  the drawing room,   with  i tl"*!   cnnntiJ   el.uT������rl!r������jTr   !���������;������'������/���������}.������������>  *Jrtex *���������;������"������������_  ,      J   ~-' ���������J  ���������   - - g��������� ��������� ������.'        ��������� ������������������������-������ *-m ^~~������ >*w *-��������� ������������>AW m 4Va.������V>      %Sm *.A**fcJ  i honored wedding arch.

At the Canyon station there  was a host bf friends on hand to see  them off and before the train pulled  out they were more than generously  showered with rice, confetti, etc., the  crowd being augmented bv^the presence of the scholars of Can yon school,  at which the bride formerly, taught,  being al������o on hand to do their bit with  a proper sendpff-  The groom's gift to the bride was a  brooch set with whole pearls and the  popularity of both parties was strikingly in evidence in the shoal of useful and ornamental presents that were  their wedding day portion.

Jos. Heath - dealing with the  horticultural situation generally in  the Creston Valley. These articles  will ba accurate as Mr. Heath but a  few months ago completed the taking  of the Horticultural census of this  section and is therefore, in a position  to speaVwritb absolute certainty. In  addition to having the exact data Mr.  Heath's long ana careful training in  this industry, coupled with a considerable ability to set down in very  readable form the information he has  obtained, combine to assure that his  articles will be both authentic as well  very interesting reading.

Forestry Draft is  Near 100 Mark  Ferry Removal  People ScoreJWin  Its a long lane that has no garbage  can, and likewise no turning. For  many moons the residents across the  Kootenay River have been urging the  provincial powers that were and that  now be (the latter, for a^few months-  only, of course) that the ferry should  be moved further up stream to a point  opposite the Goat River bridge, thus  giving them a shorter and better road  and sundry other conveniences.  In addition to being a bit lengthy  the fight also looked somewhat hopeless, but the old saying about there  being nothing certain as to what a  day may bring forth has tsuddentiy  been realized for this week comes  word that there is like to be something stirring.    Here's the letter:  Up till noon yesterday enlistments  with the Forestry,. Draft had passed  the 90 mark, and in this is not. included those who through physical disabilities or other causes have been  struck off the strength of the corps.  As the number required for this draft  is 125 men intending recruits should  sign on as early as possible to be sure  of a place on this corps.  The soldiers got the first of a series  of innoculations on Saturday morning. This first one was apreyentative  of typhoid, and while not unduly  severe it was disagreeable enough to  cancel drills until the Monday morning, when most of-the men were brick,  on duty���������after a few spending the  week-end at Nelson.  To help pass the spare time a committee is haying a dance in the Auditorium to-night, and next week the.  St". Patrick's eve hop vvill be a social  feature. The first church parade is  slated for Sunday morning, when the  men will be paraded to the Presbyterian, Methodist and Anglican  houses of worship as they prefer.  Some little distinction is lent this  Creston unit in that one of its members, Pte. Daye Dow is a native son of  ;the corps' home town���������and'the second  of the family to enlist for the overseas-  campaign. His brother, Campbell,  went across with the 54th about 18  months ago.  Would Establish  Jam Plant Here  Corn Creek Liberals  At a meeting of the residents across  the Kootenay River at. the residence  of W. B. Gllrie on Friday last it was.  decided to organiw* a Liberal association to look after the needs of that,  suction both political and otherwise.  Practically every resident in that  section wuh present. It was finally  decided to call the organization tho  Corn Creek Valley Liberal Association,  with the following elected officers for  this year:  President-~W. B. Gllrie.

John Keen, M.P.P., was favored  with the honorary p-iiNidency, and  thc membership fixed at $1. This in  the first ratepayer-V HHsoclafiou of any  sort what is commonly known as  West Creston has ever hnd. and it  certainly Iuih considerable useful work  ahead of it which -can be much more  effectively   iiceompliHhed     by   united  A feature to the evening session of  the shareholders of Oreston Fruit  Growers Union on Tuesday was the  submission of a communication  originating vvith the weil known preserving firm of Wagstaffs Liruited, at  Hamilton, Ontario, stating that were  an area of ,100 acres of-straw berries  ayailable they would be prepared to  put in a canning factory. The letter  came to ,Tas. Compton, the local  director of the B.C. Fruit Growers  Association, and reads as follows:  "As director of the B.C. Fruit  Growers Association for your district  I have pleasure iu advising you of an  enquiry ,*just received from Wagstaffs  Limited. Hamilton, Ont., a firm of  the highest reputation, who are in the  inarket for the product of 100 acres of  strawberries, to handle which they  would put in a plant. I have replied  to them suggesting that they correspond direct with the Fraser Valley  Growors, Hat'/ie Fruit Growers Association, Co-Oporative Fruit Growers  Association of Wynndel, and Creston  Fruit Growers wJiiiou. You uiigbL  tako tho matter up with these concerns with a view to their developing  business direct.  ���������** Yours very truly,  R. M. WINSLOW  The demand for an area of 100 acres  is, of course, . bout doublo the land at  present planted to strawberries in the  Vallley, our strawberry culture being  a matter of some 4'J acres.' It is  apparent, hovveyer, that either Eastern  Canada cannot supply the requisite  tonnage of berries, or that to hold  western trade thin well-known iirm  I finds it necessary to oneruto a plant in  western Canada, and in the latter  i event it is more than likely the Iirm  I would commence operating in B.C.  witn a .smaller urea to commence with  provided assurance w������������ given that the  suggested 100 aeniH would be forthcoming soon after their opening for  business say in Creston Valley. Tills  was the vinw of those present at. the  meeting, who further held that with  Ihe jam plant available Valley ranch-  era might notliealtate to tackle straw-  berrli'H on a scale Hufileieiitly large to  nflractthc Wiig������lnffn to establish in  ine valley. 1 tie Union will get, into  communication with the firm nt once.  "I am in receipt of yours of recent  date enclosing petitions for the removal of the ferry near Goat River  bridge. I shall lay the matter before  the Minister of Works and get;hiurto  send an engineer to examine both the  present site-and the proposed site, and  make   a^repo^t^lthereahN- Wbeh' yve  ;-^i.'.w������~--x ���������ir..ti'w.-->,,i;r..   ii-'.r -~-������������������*���������  gciivuia -K'fJUn.1.1  mjmS   ml.Kti.z:    VXJ  opinion on the,matter, and  report to you again.  "Yours truly,"  JOHN KEEN.  This, of course, is the usual procedure in such ,eases and will be satisfactory, no doubt, to the people of  WestCreston, provided tne. engineer  sent is a competent one; one who has  some knowledge of this part of the  country, and always provided that his  investigation is a thorough and impartial one. Both sides to tbe con-  troversb must be heard, and at as  much detail  as the time will permit.  The newly-organized West Creston  Liberal Association can now get busy  tabulating facts they will present in  support of the proposal to move the  ferry to the proposed new site.

But the latest scientific cal-  " culation is 1,000,000,000 years. This  1 great^'difference of time arises from  the difference of methods of calculation.

It  has taken all this time for uranium  to produce crystallization which  possesses creative force. The longcr  pcriod is the estimate of chemistry,  the shorter period, of geology, but as  there is no geology without chemistry, the scientific world is turning to  uranium as the controlling element  in thc building of the earth, and the  period of its retroactive agency constitutes thc age of the earth.

And Belgium, Quaker among nations, adopted this doctrine, dedicating herself and being dedicated to  perpetual peace. She was to assail  uo one and never to be/assailed. She  was true to her high faith, yet she  is the most devastated and desolated  of nations, her women outraged, hcr  men led into slavery, her churches  and art monuments levelled,' her  flourishing industries destroyed. No  weapon able to prosper against her?  Would it were so.  Words beautifully allocated are  pleasing to thc ear, but when thev  do not accord with fact their arrangement is a vain exercise.

Rudyard Kipling on the Relative Advantages of Money Making and  Other Pursuits  When Rudyard Kipling visited McGill University a few years ago, he  chose as thc theme of his address to  the student body tHe hollowncss of  materialism. Kipling warned the  young men of McGill against tlir  pursuit of money as an all-absorbing  occupation in life.  The fact that Kipling chose this  subject is evidence worthy of note of  the importance to the nation of the  ideals conceived at college by its  active-minded young men, those who  are destined for a certain moral and  intellectual leadership.

BL a'  I  I'M.-  r BRITAIN HAS  NOW APPLYING LESSONS LEARNED FROM FAILURES  The Growth of the Fighting Machine Constituted by the Army  Has Been Little Short of Marvellous, and All Resources of  The Empire Have Been Mobilized for Supreme Effort  ������������������   ' o ~  x'aI. L. Keen correspondent of the  United Press in London, reviews the  year 1916 as follows:  John Bull spent a goodly portion  of 1916 applying the lesons hc  learned the previous year.  From the Dardanelles to Mesopb-  tamia, from JSieuve Chapclle to Loos,  from Sona to Athens, lie blundered,  along, but, as subsequent'history 2n*s  demonstrated, ail the time acquiring  merit. Out of every strategic tanure,  every unfulhllcd expectation, both  military and political, he managed to  learn something, and the lessons  stuck. _  First of all .the lessons of centralized power in the direction of war,  of internal government, pt domes uc  economy and of emciency, thorougniy  learned,, led-him to put David Lioyxt  George  into  a practical  dictatorship  til tiiosc branches of British ac  iivity.  The Asquith Cabinet fell because  British puoiic opinion, almost sonctly  aligned behind '"the Jittle Welshman/'  demanded supreme emciency in .England's bght tor life. It was characteristic of Mr. Lloyd George, the  breaker of precedent, that tie should  -S-Wjeep away nearly all thc old ministerial macninery and substitute f&r  the looscty-knit, slow-moving, over-  otttcefed Cabinet, a small, compact  war council of hve members ��������� ard  take this step with the eager acquiescence of John Bull. And John Bull,  who usually has to be driven, and  who generally hates iic������.v-fauglcd  things, showed the transformation in  his character which thc war has  ���������wrought by standing behind Mr;  Lloyd George.  i By reason of his early unsuccessful adventures in the Near East, he  gathered invaluable knowledge in the  matter of -organization and equipment which hc has this year applied  in other quarters.. As a result of the  failure of his .troops, in the West iri  the spring and autumn of 1915, to  attain their desired objective, he  made certain changes in personnel,  vastly improved his organization behind the lines, and above all learned  that the only way seriously to dent  the German,- front was with a preponderating supply of shot and- shell.  He lost Bulgaria " to the allied  cause,' but ihe experience he acquired  in that process enabled him to gather  in Rumania. Just'now, by the fortune of war, Rumania appears to be  a doubtful military asset, if not a liability; but at the time unquestionably the enlistment of this country  with the allies was , a diplomatic  stroke of first importance.  Early in 1916 he adopted conscription. Had it been introduced a year  before, the war might have been over  today. Englishmen have' responded  in unprecedented fashion to their  King and country's call under the  voluntary system, but it was only  the certainty of ultimate conscription that finally brought thc enrolment up to live million men. Thc  molding of-this huge lump of human  raw material into an efficient military    machine    has been a    gigantic  task, but   its   proper    equipment has  been a greater.  Little less than miraculous has  been the development of the munitions industry in this country during  the last year. From thc start Britain  has been the treasury of the allies;  now it has become their armory.  When Mr. Lloyd George began turning England's factories into arsenals,  these Germans were manufacturing  and shooting about ten shells to tue  allies' one. There was a time when  on certain sections of the battle line  British gunners were limited to four  rounds per day. Upon America and  Japan Britain was .depending for the  most part of its supplies of machine  guns^Jheavy artillery and high explosives. Now these conditions are  all reversed, More than 4,000 private  firms in England, 95 per cent, of  whom before the war had never produced a gurt, a "Shell or a cartridge;  now are turning out munitions of  cne sort or another.  Just after the Munitions Act was  passed,    Mr.  the country uy announcing  eleven new government arsenals had  been provided for. Today there are  more than ninety, most of them producing big guns, -howitzers or hii������h  explosives. The weekly output of  'shell cartridges is now greater by  millions than England's entire annual output before the w*ajr. A new  type of machine-gun is being turned  out by the hundred every week in  one factory built in the last* year.  Thc general output of heavy artillery  has increased by several hundred  per cent. The total number of war  workers has increased to nearly four  million, of whom half a million are  women.  Practically the whole of England's  vast industrial resources, except  those necessary for thc supply of the  civil population, have been mobilized  for war purposes. Ever3- factory in  the land, if called upon, is required  to devote at least part of its activities to turning out war material.  The proportion of munitions now* furnished by America and Japan has  become almost negligible."  Moreover, England is not merely  supplying her own big armies. Shc  has had to help out Russia, France  and Italy, especially the first-named.  It has been largely due to English  guns and English shells that the  Russians Rave been able to put thc  Germans on the. defensive. Large  quantities of English munitions were  sent also to Rumania," arid the Serbian ^ army would doubtless still bc  fighting for Monastir had it not been  thoroughly rc-equipped by Great  Britain.  Giving all due credit to the aiiied  strategy in general and to Gen.  Haig's military genius in particular,  as well as to the admitted improvement of Tommy as a fighting proposition, and thc present superiority  of thc British ,air service, there is,  after all, only one answer for the recent successes along tlto Sornme and  thc Ancrc���������munitions. The lessons  of Ypres, Ncuve Chapelle and Loos  have been well, learned.  ir&rjfAfiU  AP$M  A.-'AimSmS  Break for Freedom  How the Plan of Two Interned German Officers Nearly Succeeded  ���������An ingenious method of escape  was employed by twro German officers who escaped from a detention  camp, but were subsequently arrested  and brought back. It appears that  the camp waste paper is collected at  intervals and wheeled in barrows to  a store shed outside the . grounds.  Thc officers conceived the idea of  being taken to the shed as -waste paper-and consequently hid themselves  underneath it. By using a twig of  Lloyd George startled elderwood from which the pith had  bv     announcing     that  be?!1 abstracted, they managed to get  sufhcicnt ��������� air in their hiding-place.  When the orderlies came io wheel  out thc waste paper, so natural did  the bundles look that the suspicions  of thc armed guard in .charge were  not aroused.

The Kaiser tells the German people  that they have been "victorious in  all theatres of war on land and sea."  The campaign in Rumania is described as "our recent triumphal march."

His appeal, which is addressed to "the man on the land," is  as follows:  "For two years and a half, war, red  and ruinous, has""raged through' the  world, and still no decision has been  reached. There is reason to hope  that before 1917 closes thc struggle  for liberty will have been won or be  greatly advanced. Amid the varying  phases of this tiLanic conflict the fact  stands out more clearl}*- than ever  that agriculture is of supreme importance. Extraordinary measures arc  being taken by the allied countries to  increase and encourage production.  It is earnestly hoped that every farmer in Canada w*ill strive to increase  the food supply of the empire.

In the tremendous strain yet to conic  a vital factor will bc an ample and  unfailing flow of food to England and  France, No matter what difficulties  may face us, the supreme duty of  every man on the laud is to use every  thought and every energy in the direction of producing more, and still  more."  /������SSSSSSSS������SS  r  Men Wanted for the Navy  The Royal Naval Canadian Volunteer  Reserve* wants men for imme-'  diate service Overseas, in  the Imperial Navy  r?nti(lirirttftft  mimf lie lr**rxfi  18 to 38 years ofarte and ionu    Igfegw.      ���������ftBg  of iiutural born Britiuli    ^^*ia*^S3^*^^r  nillijC-CtN.  *"��������� *   ���������-������*m  T> A "XT $1.10 per day and upwards.

In her dream the young h'-dy  saw him, with many others, climb out  of the .British trenches, cross No  Man's Land, and cuter the enemy's  lines. Her dream became confused  for a moment, and 1 lion quite plainly  ���������die saw him climb on to tlic parapet  of ihe German trench and fall forward wounded. A big man catpe up,  took the wounded man on his shoulder, and carried him back to lhe  British lines. Tin: young lady awoke  feeling very alarmed, and the next  day wrote to hcr fiance for news. A  few days afterward;- ���������dm received a  Idler from him, in hospital, stating  that on the night o! hcr dream, about,  midnight, he wa.s one uf a raiding  party, composed of English and New  Germans some of thc time anil some  of thc Germans all of thc time, but it  is not a preliminary to peace conferences.  For dynastic reasons it is" necessary to make the German people believe that they have wroit the war aud  that any peace which Germany may  propose is a victorious peace; but  there will be no pctce ou that basis;  France* will die first,  Assuming  that  there  is  an  honest  desire for peace in Germany, no progress will bc made until   the Kaiser  and     the responsible     statesmen    of  Germany begin   to  talk tJie   language  of peace and stop talking the language of conquest. No nation can hr* q  itself  into  victory.     There   must   be  Germans of sufficient sanity to know  that the Kaiser's proclamation   is   a  piece of imperial demagogy;, that Germany is  not victorious,  and  at b at  can achieve only a stalemate at incalculable  sacrifices  of blood  and  treasure.   They must know that the Kaiser's boasts arc a form of treason to  Germany;  in  that they give aid aid  comfort to the enemy by inaidng thc  allies  more determined than   ever  iu  see the war through lo the bitter end,  Yot the Germans tolerate it, lard  thc fact that they tolerate- it   is   thc  strongest justification  that the Allies  can present for their refusal to cntei  a peace conference. Great Britain aud  France have not been asked to make  peace with thc  German    people, but  with the Hoheny.olleru dynaisly    aud  with  Junhertuni.     Such a  peace  can  bc at best only a truce.  It may flatter German pride to believe that Germany lias been "victorious in all theatres of Avar on land and  on sea," but that sort of pride must  bc paid for, and it will be paid for.  What the German people arc actually  fighting for is not a German victory,  but a means of so placating their own  vanity lhat thoy will not bc templed  to revolutionize their government  when the war is ovor. They do not  know it, but they may rest assured  that the Kaiser knows it and the  Chancellor knows it, and all Junker-  tuni knows it.  The Imperial Government would  immediately, offer most liberal terms  of peace if it. could In; certain that  when t.h<: reaction came there would  bc no change in the German attiUide  towards thc throne and the doctrine  of Divine right.

Two vital questions were disposed ; of: 1. From this  year forth people who sell through the  Union must sign a contract to sell all  their produce" through the Union. 2.  The directors- were instructed to enter  into negotiations with the Mutual  Brokers', Calgary, for their selling the  fruit arid vegetables, handled by the  Union this year.'  A letter was on hand from the  Mutual Brokers stating in a fairly  .specific way what terms they are pre*-  pared to deal on. which brie'fly stated  are as follows: They agree to market  the "Union produce to the very bejst  advantage. On strawberries their  irommisssion for .seiiiug -wiii be 7% per  cent, on both carload and L.C.L shipments, and will pay for same within a  week or sooner. Oh potatoes and  onions the charge is $15 a car, and on  Other fruit and vegetables they ask���������  $30 a. car;'.ami assure that payments  on  these will  be ..-.within a month at  least.. :���������'������������������,:' A --.;���������  .Thti Brokers point out that they  have '.in wholesale houses of their own,  ���������and 10 of these are at points where  there is no other wholesale fruit  house. They have a staff of 150 salesmen .'..who call on* the retail trade  regularly. As a reference as to the,  'satisfaction they give they have stated  that in 1015 they handled the entire  straw-berry output of Gordon Head,  some eight'cars, and the price for the  .season averaged $2.11 per crate. In  1916 they did the same handling 20  cars,''and the price foi-the lot averaged  $1.90���������and there was one very bad cairn "the lot. Gordon Head, as you are  possibly aware, is on Vancouver Island.  In the way of selling by the Union  they are willing to let Creston sell  fruits as far east as Frank, Alta., on*  which business the Brokers will expect  no comission. This is a rather better  deal than obtained with the O.U.G.  in 1916. in which season Creston  Union could only sell direct as far as  Cranbrook. In addition to this the  Brokers were agreeable to allowing  the Union to take care   of orders that.  came in direct from what may be  ealled regular customers'-'.of other  seasons.  Owing to the death about ten days  ago   of  T.  F.   Jackson,    the O.U.G.  manager, that  organization   had no  definite offer to   nmkedooking to a renewal of the contract the Union had  with theaj in 1918, but while a reaiiy  definite statement  was absent there  was a line of correspondence to show  that for this year the O.U.G. proposed  to handle Creston  different from last  season.   In short they intended making Creston part and parcel   of the  O.U.G.   selling,    packing,  gathering,  etc..   scheme    of    things,    with   the  possibility    of    Creston    being   the  collecting  and    shipping  centre for  Wyundeland Boswell,   while Nelson  would   be    utilized    for    the   points  further west.     There   would   be  an  O. U.G.. manager here  who  would to  some extent be under, the direction of  a board of directors, one of each being  selected    by   the   different    agencies  selling out of Cresfcon branch.    It was  also  made manifest that the selling  charges of.6 and 4 per   cent effective  last year  would  be considerably increased,  and that the applesiv would  have to_be put up at a central packing  station���������which   it   was! pointed   out  would   necessitate    erecting another  building for that purpose, the present-  warehouse not having the.extra space  available.   These  were a few of* the  difficulties   presented    in   connection  with going   in  with  the O.U.G.   for  another year,  and after a full discus-  siou  of both  propositions it is only  fair to say  that  the  O.IL-G.  had. few  friends,   even on   this  score,   to   say  nothing of some little dissatisfaction  both the growers and   directors  had  with last year's arrangements in more  than one detail.  The matter of ^whether to enforce  the Union by-laws with reference* to  contracts was more vigorously' debated. The directors present all  spoke strongly in favor of the change,  while J-M. Craigie and Eric Oleson  were very much opposed to it. While,  generally admitting that jt was the  correct system Messrs. Knott and  Littlejohn argued for some arrange,  merit whereby what might be termed  private customer's could be. sold to  direct. Some thought this could be  arranged- provided the Union manager's o.k. was secured and assurance  given that the selling price was as  high as the  retailers  charge   at   that  SHIP -������OBBjnJBS DIRECT to '/SHCBERT" ihr largest  house ta tbe Wfirld dealing exdnslvdy inROasa AHEBICANRAW SSSS  a reliable���������*esponsiDls-=safeFujKc������ise with������i anblem*3het3reii~  .station existing for more than a third of a century." a lon������? stus-  ^^^H^^SFfS^BSJri~ ShKSKS pro**agt.SATi8*rACTORY  ANDVBOFlTABltETettixas.

"President Jackson summed the case  up for tbe contracts very briefly in  saying that if the Union had to contract with the Brokers it was just as  important that the groweas should  contract with the Union; in this way  only could assurance be given as the  crop to market-rand its a poor rule  that tlon't work both ways.  In the evening a session was held  when Chairman Robt. Stark of the  Production Committee presenten its  report, which will appear in a later  issue, and for which, he was tendered  the Union's hearty vote of thanks.  There was also some discussion on  cups and crates, from which we  gather the full pints will again be  xised for both .strawberries and raspberries���������most likely a crate that comes  to hand already made up.

Sir    Penywern  guessed    that poor  i Daphne    had availed herself    of this  mg death shc had heard so much,  was not only alive, all thc time, but  so far from being the hero and saint  she had considered him, was involved  deeply in some crime too dreadful  even to be named in his letters to his  wife.  Sir Fenyweru's heart yearned for  the young creature, and lie was ready  to a.octree himself of having been  wanting,in tenderness and in care of  lier, of having erred in leaving her  for a few days by herself, of having  failed, in short, to obtain lhat place  in her heart which would have rendered such concealment as this impossible.  And then he went on, as he had ex-  He  could imagine  what   the  shock  must have been to the poor child of   cnts which  -ntcr into-the make.up o������  ihci     whom oI������c   wood and is finding  new     uses     to  which these constituents and those  already  known   can  bc   put.  Charcoal, as everyone knows, is  essential for the manufacture of black  powder. All of thc acetone used as a  solvent in making nitrocellulose powders is derived from acetic acid, a  product of hard-wood distillation.  Great Britain, it is said, is dependent  upon the United States for acetone  used in making cordite. Black walnut is a standard for gunstocks, and  has been so much in demand for ihe  past two years that our supply of this  valuable wood has been considerably  reduced and other woods, notably-  birch, are being substituted. From  Europe comes thc complaint that  there is a shortage of willow for  making wooden legs.  By converting cellulose, one of thc  elements of wood, into a gelatinous  material, known as viscose, a wide  field is opened up for the utilization  of wood waste, and a new line of  products, varying   all   the.   way from  simple begging  of  a  more  seri-  pectcd to do, Irom  letters to later ones  ous character.  There came a passionate appeal  dated "Midnight,'' of the day of Rath-  bone's death, in which, for the first  time, that name was mentioned.

The butler stiil stood, with anxiety  in his eyes, holding the handle of thc  door, and casting glances full of pathetic entreaty at his master.  At any other time, indeed; Sir  Penywern would have been on the  alert in a moment. There was no  pretending th.tt there were not things  to be known which it was most undesirable for ill*. Gartwell to find  out; apparently it was hc who was  the trespasser, and there was an un  pleasant interest attached to what he  might find out.  For thc moment, however, the old  letters of Daphne's father were the  most important thing in thc world to  Sir Penywern, and nothing could be  allowed to stand in thc way of his  reading.  "Ten minutes! ""Yes, Sir Penywern.  Make it five, if you can, sir," Fenner  added hurriedly, as hc bent forwaid  to whisper this warning, and th-m  went  quickly out of the room.'  Sir Penywern was alreadyJialf-w.iy  down the first page of one of thc four  letters.  He read it through, and then    the  next, until all four letters were mas  tcred.   And hc grew grave as hc read.  They all bore date of more than a  dozen years before, all were written  within    thc    period  of    a  couple*  of  months,  and  all   were   couched   in   a  strain   of  the  most  extreme  reserve.  They bore no other heading than the  dale",  and  as  the  envelopes had   disappeared,    thero    was    no    evidence  where they were Avritten.  All breathed a spirit of intense affection for the absent wife ami child,  and expressed a longing to see them  again "when this is done with." But  what the particular work "was which  he had on hand the writer did nol  say. He mentioned the danger he  was in, the need of extreme caution,  the pains he took to send the letters  fiom oilu-r places than 'hat in which  In* -va*- staying, and gave slronijly  the impression Unit the writer was  Hying from justice, and that he wr.s  in eonslant dread of discovery.

All the letters began "My Dearest  Wife," and ended "Vour Loving Husband." But lie men tion oil neither his  own name nor hers.  Sir Penvwern was perturbed ralher  than :->iirpn*,ed by what he read. His  own siirinisi's had long since turned  in some such direction as tlu; letters  iii-lic.klcd, ami when he loaded lip tlu-  first packet of letters, and placing  them on one ������ ide, opened lhe second  packi.-t, it was with a well-founded  -.iihljii ion as to the further discover*  ii-.n  in  Mure  for  lijni.

Captain Silcott, ulias  Finch, complained that Rathbone wa3  a "traitor," that he wanted to give  him up to the police, and that hc had  threatened, after a quarrel, to murder Daphne hy way of revenging himself upon her father.  "What happened this afternoon was.  an accident," the letter went on. "1  followed him tip to your house, foi*  the first time daring- even' this in  your interests. I was alarmed tor  your safety, my dearest child. He  threatened to kill me. and to levy  blackmail upon you. We had a struggle, you know with what - result. I  am mad at thc thought of thc peril I  have put you in. But your keen feminine wits will teach you how to make  up some story, and 'to get rid of the  evidences. Then there Avill only be  a disappearatice to account for. Goocl-  bvc.    Your broken-hearted  FATHER."  Now to Sir Penywern the whole  tone of this letter rang as false as  false could be. He did not believe  in the man's account of what had  happened, nor did hc believe in his  protestations of affection. "Whatever  Captain Silcott might have been in  his younger days when he was the  idol of liis wife's heart, his character  had suffered deterioration of the  most marked kind since - the days  when his first crime led liim to conceal himself, and then to get his wife  to connive at a spurious death und  burial.  The remaining letters were begging  epistles pure and simple, always cleverly calculated to stir her dutiful feelings, and always couched in lhc most  tender  strain.  Sir Penywern put them back in  llieir envelopes carefully, and tied up  the packet again. Then he put: both  parcels into one of the inside drawers of the desk,  and locked it up.  The last letter of all contained a  request for fifty pounds, "that he  might get away, and never trouble  the most dutiful of daughters: more."  Had the rascal kept his word? il  was most unlikely, seeing that ono. of  his emissaries, Webling, had made a  fresh appeal to Daphne lhat evening!  Or had Kineh made his escape, and  had his little gang of coadjutors received his mantle, and begun blackmailing on their own account?  This seemed highly probable.  Sir Penywern was aghast at thc position disclosed by the letters. He  understood now thc reluctance poor  Daphne haiWelt in making known the  misdeeds of the father whose) memory she had been, taught to revere.  .Standing a little in awe of the husband who w.'.k so much older than  herself, and whose position made, him  lhe accredited foe of wrongdocri*!, she  might very naturally have shr.Hik  from revealing the fact of her father's  existence in the first place; while the  ciime commuted by him within he  own knowledge, and perhaps even in  Inr Pi\.\U\, must have rendered her  '\ en more anxious than before to  keep the ugly- secret as long a*- sue  could, even at the risk of her own  reputation.

Akin to the British  Interesting Conclusions Drawn From  Tracing French Ancestry  Thoughtful delvers into Canadian'  history have drawn attention to the  fact that the French of Lower Canada are more akin to ourselves than  we have been'accustomed to suppose.  Their ancestors came from Brittany  and Normandy. The Bretons arc  'brothers to the Celtic, Irish, the  Welsh and the Highland Scottish.  The Normans were of Scandinavian  blood, and essentially identical with  the Northmen who scourged England under thc name of Danes, occupied that part of France from which  came William the Conqueror and his  retinue, and even adventured into the  Mediterranean as far as Sicily.

The statement goes on to show that the net  profit for the year for the two was  no less than $450,000, and that a dividend of seven per cent, was paid on  the preference shares and eleven per  cent, on the common. If any Canadian hotels are doing this sort of a  land office business, we. would like to  hear from them. As there are unnumbered thousands of Canadian women - hanging around London, it is  safe to say that Canadians have contributed a goodly share of these profits, and incidentally eaten up a good  many tons of precious food.���������Toronto Saturday Night.
