The information was laid by B. Q.h,  Clark, Dominion- Fruit Insf-wtor, and  tho case tried by E. Mallandaine, J;P.  The prosecution was tho outcome of  complaints to the Dominion Inspector  from prairie points. The particular  box whloh figured in this case was a  hox of Greenings graded No. la bnt  which, owing to thoprovalcnco of ucob  should have been marked up No. 8s.

The second at-home of the Social  Glub at Scotty Todds on Friday night  was a great big success from start to  finish. John Johnson was in charge  of the-floor and excellent music was  provided by Butterfield Bros., Carl  Wigen, and Carl Carlson. The lunch  was ample and No. 1 for quality. F.  Martin of,. JSrickson was among tbe  outsiders in attendance. "-  KITCHENER  Frank Callander, game warden, was  in our city this week to see whether  everybody was living up to the Game  Act.  Andy Miller of Creston was one of  the sportsmen to visit our city this  week.  Capt. Forrester of Creston mode an  official call here this week.  A. Creelman of Vancouver, bead of  the Kitchener Lumber Co., was here  this week, visiting his sister, Mrs. J.T.  Burgess.  J. E. Miller, our would-be sport, was  up in the hills the fore part of the  week arid brought down a good specimen of the bl-ick bear femily.  Harry Leonard of Creston came to  this district in search of deer, and  while out in the woods bumped up  against a large cougar, and at once  opened fire on Mr. Cougar at long  range. Oh, Dutchy can put up a good  fight when he gets cornered.  Edward Hawkins, also of Creston,  made Kitchener a call on Saturday,on  his way to Hunt's camp.

When seen by The UKvmW he  stated that the news of her husband's untimely end had prostrated  Mrs. Haro and he was therefore unable-to say whether she would  leave Coleman, where she In living  at. present, and-occupy ihe Corn  Crteek proper^ or not; he thought  she would sell it and remain in  Coleman, where she has a comfortable home.  Mrs. Haro's first husband aJUto  met his death by accident���������he hod  bis back broken in ar mine cave-in  but lived for "almost six months  after the mishap, leaving her with  a daughter and a son, the former  now seventeen years old and the  boy fourteen. That- was in I90������f  She and Haro were only married  in July, anct almost immediately  after the wedding he came nere  and took up land.  Wihanto states that but for the  cropping up of some important  ---.usiness he would most likely have  shared the same fate as Neimi and  Wilson. He had a ticket ��������� bought  and trunk checked .for-Creston intending to leave on Nov. 21 to help  Haro finish his 7jhrouse, but at the  Ja_rt minute fce'was detained. It is  somewhat, ottia C9in-qidenqe^tlu.t  when the first husband diect Wi-  hanto was the friend ot the family.

The musical service was bright.- The choir  rendered the anthems, "Lift Up Your  Heads" and "Come Unto Him," the  solo part in the latter being taken by  Mrs. Carpenter.  On Monday night the congregational  social was held In Mercantile Hall.  Bev.

"Oh, I know so many things," she  answered, and looking at her again  he  once  more  seemed  to see    deep  ofllee again he was in thoroughly low  spirits. He felt that he had received  his first real defeat, for hitherto he  he had at least always fought cleanly,  and now he had descended to deceit.  There was this much excuse for him  that he had acted ofc the impulse of  the moment,  and  in  the desperation   _  wrought in bim by a sudden threat t j^- heV VvsVeriouT'eyis "things    that  of ruin oust when he had thought he | he could flot uuaerstand and yet that  had reached a piace of safety. Then,  too, there had been a natural resent  meat at the foul blow dealt him in j .���������<_ ,. ^ ,.������������������������  secret. But Hugh did not try to make ��������� *"*-" **"*" *""*  excuses for himself; he only, felt  ashamed and degraded, and he felt  above all that his use of Delia's name  had been indefensible. He made up  his mind that the only thing for him  to do was to go straight back to  Kensington Place Square and make  his confession to Delia, lt was a  bitter pill; for he neither liked nor  trusted his cousin, whose furious temper had always seemed to him repulsive in a woman. Now he woald have  to confess to her conduct of which  he felt more and more ashamed every  moment.  "But I-have got to do it," he said  to himself, and anyhow I had better  be before Ziebold, or she may be  flying into one .of her furies with him  and scratching his face for him or  something of that kind."  So soon as he could, he left his  office to the careful charge of Mr.  Logan and took his own way westward  to make his confession to Delia.  There had been a good deal of  routine work to attend to, however,  so that it had been quite four before  he had been able to get away. He  took a 'bus, for his mood was economical���������as far as the Albert Memorial,  and from there walked, not feeling  in any particular hurry for the coming  interview.  "I wonder what Delia will say," he  questioned himself uncomfortably; "I  expect she will give me a sample   of  her temper���������well, if I earn a cheek as  red as that footman's the otlier day,  1 shall get no more than I deserve.   1  hope she will draw the line at throwing lamps about, though."  He was near his destination   now,  and he began to wonder idly what he  would  be feeling like if his    errand  woro concerned with a genuine    engagement to some one he was really  in love with.    He wondered what it  was like to be in love.    He supposed  ho was never likely to know, for as a  business man in difficulties, struggling  hard to keep his head above water, he  had no time to think of such things;  and then as he turned Into Kensington  Place Square he lifted his oyes and  saw standing in tho gutter a flower-  girl, who was looking straight at him  with a very intent expression in her  eyes.  Forgetting    everything,    forgottlng  who he wns and on what orrand ho  was thero, Hugh stood quite still uud  ' gazed;   and for the moment he was  conscious of nothing in nil the world  save   a   pale,   oval   face   with   lovoly  features, though the mouth and chin  were rather too large nnd pronrilnont;  very   white,   regular   teeth;   and     a  mass of thick, black hair    that wus  twisted round the small head in luxuriant,  oarnlou-i   colli*.    But.  If,  wuh the  eyes on which Hugh gazed nnd found  in them such fascination ho could not  look away, eyes that wero largo und  bluck and lovoly, and charged with   a  inysterlonH passion, and clouded with  the grief ot ull  thu  world, und culn.  wlth the plly of those who know woll  the hard futo laid upon tho nons nnd  the daughters of men; oyos tlmt woro  at   onco, sore no   nnd   eager,   puucuful  .uul  lien..���������(.���������, rcs-igiicd ;<m_ i..-.'.uluU',    ;.;o  thnt. nil who looked on thom seemed  to look on the shadow of themselves,  ll ugh took a trembling nnd unsteady  he knew concerned him deeply.

And for the moment, so great was  the wonder and fascination of her  beauty and the strangeness of her  eyes, Hugh*-saw no longer a London  flower-girl of to-day, but rather an. ancient priestess and prophetess warning him of the path wherein he  should not tread. The next moment  he recovered himself.  "I am afraid you are trying to be  impudent," he said, "but here is'another sixpence for your fortunetell-  ing." i  He put the coin on her tray and  turned his back to her, pleasing  himself with the idea that he had  shown a complete, a lofty, and yet  not an ill-natured contempt of what  she had said. But he Avas oddly disconcerted when he heard, her laughing softly behind him.  By an effort he prevented himself  from looking round, and going up the  steps to his uncle's door he knocked  and was admitted. Delia was in the  morning room���������Jier favorite room as  it looked out on the Bide of the square  and the busy High Street beyond���������  nnd there Hugh went. ���������  She greeted him shortly, and he saw  at once she was in'a bad temper, perhaps even bn the verge of one of her  wild outbreaks of fury. j  "A bad lookout for me, considering  my errand," said Hugh to himself, and  he eyed rather uneasily a tall and  heavy vase on the mantlopiece, the  fellow to which he knew Delia had  some time before smashed by hurling  it at the head of a caller who, ns  she chose to think, had boen rude to  her.  "What hidoous, horrid flowers you  havo got thoro," she said.  "ATe they?" said Hugh surprised,  and lifting the little hunch he still  held in his hand.  "Yes they are," .she snapped. "Let  me have them." .  He gavo thchi to her, and she  crushed them-in her hand, and then  began to tear them into little bits.  Hugh wntchod in silence, feeling more  and moro uncomfortable every moment. A queer idoa struck hlm, and he  wondered how ho would havo boon  feeling at that moment If that strange  flower-girl outside had been not herself, but Delia; and if his claim to  be engnged to her had boon not false,  but. true? Ho bliiHhod at his own  folly in getting such notions Into his  head, uud yet seemed to seo quite  plnlnly the .lower-girl'.* ntrangoly  beautiful faco and haunting, lovely,  Hoarching eyes, fierce nnd tender by  turns.  "You wore a long time talking to  that, girl in the gutter," said Delia  abruptly and with a heaving breast.  Hugh fairly jumpod; t>ie wordii  camo so pat. on fop of his thoughts.  "Oh,  I  saw  you,"  said  Delhi,  not  icing his momentary agitation and giving  an   iinpiou.suiit  Juiigii.        "1     wut*  watching yon ont of tho window."  "Were   you?"   Bald   Hugh,     feeling  for the storm to break, "it came so  suddenly, and I was tempted, and   I'm  , awfully'ashamed of myself but I let  |������him think it was true."  All her expression changed most  wonderfully. She trembled and Hfted  her glowing face, and she held out her  arms towards him with a gesture full  of yearning and love.  "Oh, Hugh, my .own ��������� Hugh," she  murmured softly, "how was it that  you guessed my secret?"  defend the independence, thc liberty,;  the integrity of a small neighbor, that j  has lived peaceably, but she could not j  have compelled us, because she: was  weak.    The man  who declines' to discharge his debt -necause his creditor  is  too poor to enforce it is a blackguard.  "We entered into this treaty, a hoI-  einn   treaty,  a  full  treaty,  to  defend  Belgium and her integrity. Our signa*  lures are attached  to? the document.  Our signatures   do not stand    alone  there.   This was not the oniy country  to  defend   the   integrity- of  Belgium.  Russia,   France, Austria  and  Prussia  are all there.    Why did they not perform the obligation?    It is suggested  that When you quote this treaty, it is  purely an  excuse on our, part, it is  our  low'craft  and   cunning,  just   to  cloak our jealousy of a superior civilization we are attempting to destroy.  '���������'-' "Our answer is the. action we took  in 1870,    What was that?    Mr. Gladstone was, then prime minister. Lord  'Granville,  I  think,   was  then  foreign  secretary.    I. have never heard it alleged to their charge that .they were  ever jingo.  -What did they do in 1870?  j We called upon the belligerent powers  to respect that treaty.   We called upon France, we called upon Germany.  At that time, bear in mind, the great-[  est     danger  to  Belgium  came  from  France and not from Germany. "We 'in-'-j  tervened   to protect Belgium against  France exactly as we are doing now to  protect her against Germany: We are  proceeding exactly in the same way.  We invited both the belligerent pow-  .ers to state that they had no intention   of   violating   Belgian     territory.  What was  the answer given by  Bismarck?    He  -.aid  it was  superfluous  to ask Prussia snch a question in view  of the treaties in force. France gave j  a similar answer.

An Ironical Position  Hugh heard, but hardly understood,  though with a sort of dull shock of |  fear and dismay he jumped quickly to  his feet, and Delia, as it seemed, misunderstanding  his   movement,    flung  herself into his arms.        ���������-  "Oh, Hugh,"she murmured, looking  up at him with a beaming, shining  face, "Oh, my own Hugh," and she  kissed him passionately.  "Good heavens���������Delia," he muttered hoarsely, and he shook from head  to foot with an emotion that once  again she misunderstood.  "Oh, how happy I am," she sighed,  with her arms about his neck. "Are  you?"  "Delia," he stammeerd again in the j  same  heavy, unsteady- tones, ahd he j  wished to tell her it was all a horrible  mistake, but as he opened his lips to  speak she closed them with a kiss.  Then he knew it was impossible for  him ever to tell the truth. For ho had  surprised her secret, he had held her  in his arms, his lips and hers had  met, and now how could he turn  round and tell her coldly'it was all a  mistake. She had unveiled to him the  privacy of her heart, aud he had not  prevented her; she had welcomed him  in the hidden and passionate recesses  of her nature, and since ho had entered there, no matter how unwittingly,  how could he turn on her and claim  to be a stranger to her once more?  "Wor.'t you kiss n*e, too, Hugh?"  she said.  He lowered his head and pressed  his lips to her cheeks, and it was to  hlm as though this kiss scaled his  death warrant.  "How cold you are," she said, looking at him lovingly. "Oh, Hugh, how  did you gtiOHb? I thought I had hidden my secret well, how did you Iind  me out?"  For a momont Hugh dallied ou the  vory verge of speaking out. He looked at hor and ho had a loathing of  his llfo and almost a hatred for her.

The" mistaken idea that laxatives  or drastic .purgatives provide" a short  cut to the cure 6������ indigestion is  ^largely responsible for the������prevalence  of dyspepsia and-other stomach disorders. Indigestion calls* for more  than a makeshift. Your stomach needs  tone; it cannot absorb nourishment  from the food you eat. To give new  strength to your stomach so?, that it  may perform the work of digestion  without pain or distress, you must enrich the blood. This is the tonic method for strengthening weak atomachs.

They are floored,  many of them, with cement; they are  roofed over with boards covered with  sods that serve both to keep out the  rain and to, hide them from French or  British aeroplanes j tthey ave divided  into     chambers     communicating   by  doors.    There is  tlie most advanced  trench in which the outposts mount  guard at night, "then two or three hundred yards behind is the main line of  entrenchments, and behind that again  are great pits, dug out of. the ground  "to serve as kitchen^' or dormitories in  which   the reserves and supports for  the first line live. - ��������� These    rearward  "trenches are connected with the foremost line by parallel passages.

As we pointed out before, the  practice should not be resorted to  without st least carefully examining the price and quality of goods  offered by Creston merchants. By  buying here you have the advantage of personal inspection and you  take the goods home "with you, thus  being sure cf on-time delivery.  Besides you do not overlook the  broad principle thut in spending  money away from home you rob  the community and indirectly yourself. .  Now is the time to stand together. Creston merchants, yon  may be sure, are only too ready to  give you fair prices and meet the  competition of the mail order house  if you -.-.Hill only give them a fair  Bghting chance.  Next tune you think ol-buying  out town,changeyourmind: at least  see if you cannot iind the same  thing in Creston, and at about the  same price.  ; Bemember, you can look over  your prospective purchase here, you  can take it home at once, and you  can take it home free.  Furthermore, you give the  merchant that much additional  money, he gives a good deal of-it to  -someone else Jn town, and bye and  bye a portion of it "will* come back  to you.  Eaton Doesn't Donate  One of the hardest-hit towns in  the Pass is Michel. The local relief  organization is doing its part giving a little assistance to those with  targe families.  In casting about for likely parties  from whom help might be expected  were they appraised of the necessity  of their help some of the patrons of  a big Winnipeg department store  wrote them, explaining the situation and suggesting that in return  for cash business received a small  or large donation in kind would be  both timely and acceptable.  Here's the response to their  appeal, in the exact language of the  Michel correspondent to the Fernie  District Ledger:  "A big donation was received  from T. Eaton Co., Winnipeg, .  in tho shape of ADVICE and  SYMPATHY. Poasibly.when  times are normal our people  will remember that the tradesmen of this town havo helped  very materially during theso  hard times, and givo them (tho  local tradesmen) like they do  "Timothy" the boneBt of a few  cash transactions. Tho local  merchants have dono their  share and dono it nobly, and  thc lcaat wo can do is to hoar  theso facts in mind."  Thore is no occasion to dwoll on  the incident.

The above is worthyof more than  the customary "ones over," but we  would suggest that in giving, it'the  second reading you strike out the  word Cranbrook, wherever same  appears, aud insert the Word  Creston, :  The Review has been somewhat  generous lately with the glorious  gospel of buy-at-home, as we hold  that the community that is good  enough for us to live in should be  good enough for us to buy in, and  that every dollar we spend in Creston stays in Creston and helps  work for the welfare of Creston.

In the south  forty-seven were for the Allies and  five for Germany.  In the west the vote is eleven to  four in tho Allies' favor, but it is  pointed out that "western sympathy has beon left to fall muoh where  it was most inolinod," owing to the  less thorough and often baldly inadequate statement of tho war's  issues and causes whioh has been  by most of the newspapers wost of  Buffalo, particularly in many of  the smaller cities.

The oldest son, C. E. Howard, also  of British Columbia, was a lieutenant  in the royal reserve artillery, but retired to go to ranching in Canada. He  also is anxious to get baok into the  service with* fighting going on, but  Mrs. Howard is not worrying about  him, for there are a wife and baby up  at Erickson, neither of whom approve  of war. But she is sending up there  for her youngest son, age 10, to come  down to Spokane that she may be  more certain of hia staying with her.  Yet she is not at all ashamed of her  son who did enlist.  Her youngest daughter, with hair  in a braid, is sorely disappointed that  she is not a grownup boy and able to  serve. She was just getting ready to  write to Field Marshal Roberts for a  place as a nurse when his death was  reported, They can't help it, for the  family has been in England's army  service since the days of William the  Conqueror.  Mrs. Howard.was born in the service  at Calcutta. Her father and mother  had passed through the terrible Indian  mutiny, an opportunity that Roberts  himself did. not overlook. He was bora  in Cawnpore, where one of the worst  massacres of the mutiny happened.  Mrs. Howard's mother was one of the  women given a revolver, in the crisis  of the uprising, with which to kill herself when the troops could no longei  hold out. But she lived to the age pf  DI. dying not long ago.  At the age of 7 Mrs. Howard was  brought to England with her parents,  where she lived until she inevitably  married' an officer of the artillery.  He was promptly ordered to India,  ���������vhere,'in the-land of her birth, she  ..uttered so acutely from homesickness  f< )i- England that she begged Roberts  _���������> transfer her husband back "home."  ---obei-ts was then in command of the  lirdian forces, and all the comfort he  r .uld give her was that sbe would  i-N.i-xi to love the country by and by,  -.��������� Y.ic-h Mrs. Howard says she learned  r . do.

As the  eminent product of generations of soldiers Roberts had a keen appreciation  of boys, especially English stock, Mrs.  Howard remembers him as kind and  extremely sociable in the family but  every inch the officer.  Time went on to tako Roberts  through his great campaigns and the  retirement of her husband as a major  released Mrs. Howard of the necessity  of more long sea voyages on short  notice, not an unwelcome change to  her In spite of her army heritage, for  she was consistentlyseasiok each tlmo.

Mrs.  Howard does not shrink from it. nor  the possibility that her youngest may  answer the call and even tbe oldest if  the "need becomes imperative. She  modestly mentions that they are all  fit, and the soldier's daughter wouldn't  be the first to protest England's need  of her men.  Butarray life must have some magic  for Mrs. Howard seems to need an affidavit of her grown children and she  has a smile that ripples readily even  when she mentions the boy far away  in the teeth of the world's most terr-  ble war. Service in widely separated  .parts bf the -world evidently does not  rob the English army women of gra-  ciousness.

Afterward comes the staying at home  wherever that may be, and waiting  for what the fortunes of war may  bring.  Mrs. Howard is doing this now in  the light of actual knowledge of what  it may bring, here in a city she never  thought hor likely heard of when she  was getting that experience.

BUT BE SURE THEY'RE  The Literature of the Farm  la the current issue "Hoard's Dairyman" draws attention to the great  strides that have heen taken in recent years towards raising the educational status of the farmer. The writer says: "One of the most notable of  the many advances which the genius  of the world has made in these modern times is "the extent and quality oi  agricultural literature. Upon no oue  subject has there heen such a concentration of human intellect and research as is here shown iu the last  quarter of a century. It is astonishing  that the old farm, overlooked anil despised somewhat by the rage for professional distinction, should thus evoke  the services of the best intellects ot  the day and age.  The growth of agricultural, journalism, the wonderful conquests of. agricultural      chemistry    and     physical j  I science, the advance of our ugrieultur-1  al colleges and schools, and lastly lho |  taking up of agriculture studies in the i  public schools af the land���������-all these!  have    shown a wonderful impulse on j  the part of all tho peoplo towards a i  better  understanding  of    what     the j  ! farm   means   to   the   welfare   of   tho!  [masses.   All this has eailed for an ex-|  i press ion of thought and study in the  ', form  of  a great   literature   which   is  j producing a powerful intluence  upon  {the minds of all tho peoplo and of the  | far-u.   population   in  particular."  **������_���������������* *   * ut. ������  j    W������ offer One Hundred Dollars Re*  I word tor any case of Catarrh   that  ��������� cannot .be cured    by Hall's Catarrh  ��������� n  ^  l -ourw.  ��������� T. 3.

In     all there are 70,000 of  them, consisting of two infantry divi  sions and four cavalry brigades, with  sappers and   transport corps.     With  them  come  eleven    Indian    Princes,  chosen out of seven hundred who immediately came forward to offer their  lives, armies, and treasures to their  emperor.    This is the flrst time that  the native troops have fought against  Europeans, but it is by no means the  first time that they have battled side  by side with the English Tommy Atkins.     They   have   fought   battles   of  unparalleled fury, and, undergone untold hardships  in  many    campaigus,  marching and fighting    antl camping  with   our own troops, to whom they  are no strangers.   Iu the Indian Mutiny, in the two Afghan wars, in. Bur-  mah,   in  Egypt,   in   the   Chitral,   and  dozens   of   frontier   campaigns,   from  one side of India to the other, they  have   shown   themselves   capable   of  marvellous endurance and tremendous  ���������energy.   Because it is hot in Iudia it is  an entire delusion to suppose that our  Indian armies  are mere fine-weather  fighters.    The    rigors of a European  winter are  nothing to    what    these  troops have experienced in times past,  fighting on the northern frontiers of  the Indian empire, on the roof of the  world.   Passing from the heat of tho  plains they have climbed up into the  mountains.    They know "what rain is,  such as is never seen in Europe. They  have fought and stormed fortresses at  11,000 feet above sea-level, and camped with thc thermometer at 20 degroes  below freezing point, the rivers frozen, and snow covering    the    ground.  Among the most, famous native regl  ments are the Gurkhas, short, slight,  wiry men of tremendous strength, capable of amazing endurance. The Ben-  gul Lancers are other famous fighters,  mnn  of splendid  physique,  and magnificent horsemen, highly disciplined,  and knowing no fear.    It is of these  men  that Lord Curzon 1ms said that  ho      hopos   to   soo   them   .."arching  through the streets of Berlin.  Minard's   Liniment  for   sale   everywhere.  War and the Eugenist  The economist, the political idealist, the moral enthusiast���������leaders in"  all branches of thought, will regard  the present war with doubt aud misgiving. But none will deplore it so  deeply as the eugenist. The man with  visions of race improvement, the believer in the hereditary transmission  rif t->i������vgioal characteristics', must behold the destruction of the strong aiid  hardy, the preservation of the Weak  and inlirm He la convinced that the  physical improvement of the peoples  of Europe will, as a result of the conflict, receive a century's setback. His  fears are well grounded; his faith  has the justification of history. Napoleon's fatal genius clouded all Europe with the gloom of war, wrecked  commerce aud industry, crushed political freedom. But worst of all, and  most lasting, was the blow to the  manhood of France. That was reparable only through tbe course of centuries. ���������*���������  The devastation of humanity is still  the most terrible exaction of warfare.  Progress in civilization, in political,  economic and personal freedom is  dearly bought, if it be attained only at  the price of physical deterioration.���������  Conservation of Life.

Ho declares tlmt. everything  ho has-.-j'oad in the papers about German atrocities is quite true. "In one  place, when we were retiring from  Mons, I saw children who had had  arms and legs cut off by the Germans? While passing a house I hoard  moans as of someone in distress. With  others of the company I went in, and  wo found an old man lying dead across  the fireplace. This was nothing compared to what met our gaze a. moment  later, when we came upon a woman  nailed to a door. Hor arms were outstretched, and through - each, wrist a  nail had been driven. The woman  was alive, though unconscious. We  were not , ble to do anything-.for. her  until-one of our surgeon officers ar-  ', rived, when-, we took her dOAvn undor 114-42 Scottat  his directions.
