W. M.

Latest word is that the C.P.B. experts with their drill will arrive about  the middle of June to commence a  thorough test on the iron desposits  the big railway company haye located  above Kitchener.'  Gw A. Hunt was a business visitor at  Creston the early pari of the week,  returning on Tuesday.  Frank Putnam, fche 191? fire warden,  <>f Oreston, was here a few days ago  getting acquainted with the country.  There will be no fire guard located  here permanently fchis year; though  it is likely a patrolman wilf be put oh  in the very dry weather and whenever  . necessary at other times.

The Review was in error a couple of  weeks ago in stating that .the elder  had charge of the funeral of the  young son of Pte. H. Young. Ifc was  an Elder Townsend who officiated on  that occasion. v   ';  One of the fcwe bear cubs taken by  Messrs. Faulkner and Rhodes has  made its escape-and despite diligent  search has not yet been found. The  Tory politicians all swear that it is the  cub Macdonald that made its getaway.  Tbe name was an awful hanicay,  despite Geo. Broderick's assurance to  fche contrary.  T. O'Neil, who has been in charge of  fche Company store for the past fchree  months, left the early part of the  week for Portland. He is a U.S. navy  reservist, and will report for service  at once. His leaving is regretted by  fche youngsters, particularly, who are  just getting interested in the boy  scout work Mr. O'Neil had organized.  The 12-aci*e hay field belonging to  fche Company near the corner was  pmntcu io potatoes last week,������S7 sacks'  of seed spuds being used up on the  job, which was done with the Cartwright planter.

C Ounnigham of Sandon was here  the latter part of the week arranging  for the shipping of five head of Company horses that he had bought on a  previous visit. They were loaded out  on Monday.

Hilda  Tressingham  gave her companion one of her searching glances.  Von Roon's eyes were fixed on _ the  branches   of   the   cedar   above   him.  "Explain," she said.  "Yes.    I  understand that it is  the  rule   that   when   one   of  your  parliamentary  representatives is  appointed  to   an   office   of    profit    under      thc  Crown, he vacates his seat."

The Torpedo  Engine of Destruction the Invention  of an Englishman  When a German U-boat sends a  torepdo on its mission of destruction  it is utilizing a weapon of British  origin, since the modern locomotive  torpedo was the invention of Whitehead, a British engiueer. It was in  1877, forty4 years ago, that the  Whitehead torpedo first came into  notice, Whitehead's original torpedo carried twenty-six pounds of gun-  cotton and travelled eighteen knots.  The twenty-one-iuch Whitehead torpedo now in use carries 330 pounds  of gun-cotton and has a range of  over six miles, at a speed of thirty  knots. At a range of four miles its  speed is about forty-five knots. The  explosive is packed in the head of  the torpedo, and is usually guncot-  ton, although the Germans use what  they call trinitrotoluene. The explosion is caused by a steel rod  which projects a few inches beyond  the head of the misslc. When this  rod or striker comes in contact with  any unyielding substance, such as a  ship's side, it is pressed back against  thc detonation,  and, woosh!  ^-^As Nowadays  "What did the old man say whew  you asked kim if you could marry his  daughter?"

A Cure for Fever and Ague���������Disturbance of the stomach and liver  always precede attacks of fever and  ague, showing derangement of the  digestive organs and deterioration  in the quality of the blood. In these  ailments Parmelee's Vegetable Pills  have been found most effective, I  abating the feve"r and subduing the  ague in a few days. There are many  who are subject to these distressing  disturbances and to these there is no  better preparation procurable as a  means of relief.-  Statistics Show Marked Reduction in  Madness Since Struggle Began  Probably the average man is under  the impression that war has a tendency to increase lunacy. It is,indeed  generally considered that anything so  destructive of life and property, so  appaling in its nature, would have an  exceedingly perturbing* effect upon  the human mind and cause innumerable cases of mental: derangement.'  Paradoxical, however, as it may  seem, war has just an opposite result-  According to the returns issued by  the various asylum authorities since  the war began, there *has been a  marked reduction in insanity.  It might, of course, be suggested-  that this is due to the fact of so  many men being drawn away from  the distracting competition of thc industrial world into the army, where  life, if more precarious is more varied and interesting. This, no doubt,  is a contributory cause. But recent  returns show a reduction amongst  women as well as men.  What, then, are the general reasons adduced by the experts for this  satisfactory state of things? Well, in  times of peace they tell us that life  is dreary and monotonous, and, in order to vary their existence, people  resort to forms of amusements  which, instead of affording them  genuine recreation or gratification,  only produce languidness and ennui.  When, however, a great war breaks  out, if dispels the monotony of our  lives, and gives us serious and practical things to consider. Hence, instead of causing intellectual breakdown, it rather generates new intellectual  energies.

JUNE   1  for the dependant on those who  came forward of their own free  will and accord to maintain the  empire's integrity is a factor' of  foremost consequence.  Tinso fo ���������������������8&n������M& W*  Now that those in authority at  Ottawa are taking steps to put  the raising of the necessary overseas fighting forces on a safe and  sane business basis, it might be  well to pursue a similar course in  the matter of seeing to it that those  dependants who are left behind by  the men already gone overseas are  as well provided for as the situation  admits of.  To be more precise, hasn't the  hour struck for the taking over  and financing through the militia  department the work now beiug  looked after by the Canadian  Patriotic Fund.  11/  ������&IH_ H    Ha  ^OmmmVr*&&.  -mB--**~,     -SSS.  xgasssa,  ES&SSSS  On another page of this issue  will be found a digest of the report  of the United States engineers,  who for the- past two years have  spent some time in investigating  the posibility of reclaiming the  Kootenay Flats.  So far as it was possible for  them to make a thorough survey  of the whole undertaking their  findings may be accepted as reliable as they have gone into aU  the details very thoroughly, and  the men engaged in the work are  engineers of repute.  Unfortunately, owing to international    regulations     made   and  provided,   the   U.S.   investigators  If   under   the    selective    draft |were unable to raak?  observations  or study sn any detail the  features  of   reclamation   as  obtain   on the  system only single men up to the  ago of 35 or 40 years are to be  called to serve at the front, to lie  followed, if necessary, by the  married men with no children, it  is surely safe to assume that the  present struggle will be ended at  least before it will be necessary to  call up men requiring something in  addition to their soldier's pay in  order to provide for the reasonable  requirements of those they wiii  leave behind.  Through much careful effort on  the part uf those who have taken  care of the work of the many  branches of the Canadian Patriotic  v unu it Suoulu be sai6 to assume  that those now being assisted by  the fund are in most cases being  paid fairly adequate amounts.  With the enforcing of selective  draft there will be no more additions to those entitled to help for  some time to come. Why not then  the government absorb the work  say at the end of the Fund's year  ���������some time in September���������and  either direct from Ottawa or from  headquarters in the several provinces send out the necessary  cheques monthly. Possibly some  sort of provincial organization  should be maintained so that in  case of complaints or requests for  temporary increased allowances  such matters could the more  readily be looked into and adjusted.  The taking over entirely  of the  financing of the   Patriotic   Fund  requires   serious    and    immediate  attention.    Due to the ever-increas  ing living  costs  donations   to the  fund  are  reasonably  sure  to  fall  off,   while  those  in   receipt of aid  from   the   fund   will   be requiring  larger allowances   to   get along at  all with the ever  upward trend of  most of the necessities of life.  By assuming   the responsibilities  now shouldered by those entrusted  with   Patriotic   Fund   work    the  federal authorities would be doing  at least   a   two-sided   bit   of   good  work.    By  getting  this money by  Home special direct tax  if  feasible  the fellow   who   is not   now doing  hin bit  in this direction   would be  made to assume   his  full   financial  responsibility,   and     possibly   the  foreigner   who   finds   this   a   good  '���������onntry to live in, but not to fight  for or invest his money in, made to  do a white man's share and a little  more.

Not only have the U.S.   authorities advised as to the feasibility of  the undertaking, hut   the   per-acre  costs they have figured   out for the  whole   work    make   the    scheme  readily financially practicable.    As  to whether  it  were  possible to so  reclaim these lands  so  as to make  them   immune  from   any  possible  flooding   that  can   only  be determined by   investigation and observation on the  Canadian  side, and  if the water rights  branch   of the  administration   have been keeping  records as assiduously for the past  quarter century   as they appear to  be now exact data  on the quantity  of  water  to  be  taken  care of in  drainage works should   be  readily  obtainable.  In view of agricultural legislation enacted at the session of the  legislature just closed, the powers  extended the minister and finance  made .available for encouraging  and developing our basic industry,  it seems impossible that something  definite should not now be forthcoming on this reclamation project; an undertaking that/ should  in good time repay the govern,  ment every dollar expended on it,  open up the most likely-looking  farming area iu the heart of B.C.,  ar.d from year to year bo productive of considerable provincial  revenue, in thc shape of taxes, as  woll.

According  to   these  all British  Columbia  will be asked to provide  is  a  few   over 5000  in   the   first  100,000 called   to the colors.    This  surely is not a  tremendous undertaking if half  the stories  we  hear  as to the number of slackers who  are to be seen daily  in   the streets  of   the  coast cities alone,  to say  nothing at all  of the larger towns,  which  are reputed  to be equally  populous with likely-looking young  men with nothing  more serious to  occupy their spare  time than  the  picture   shows,    pool  rooms,   ball  games, etc., and who, from a bit of  careful investigation,  are not employed at any  necessitous trade or  calling,   nor seemingly  have they  in most cases any dependant upon  them for their upkeep.  Were the conscription legislation  now before parliament to provide  that thoae provinces that have not  aB yet furnished their full quota  by the old voluntary system should  first of all make good their proportionate share by the selective  draft route before other provinces  that have already reoruited ovor  and above their pro rata allowance,  British Columbia would be the laat  provinoo to feel the effoots of the  proposed consoriptive measure.  Both British Columbia and Alberta  have enlisted in the neighborhood  of 7000 mon oaoh moro than thoy  should have had tho volunteer  system boon worked out on a basis  of so many, and no more, mon  from oaoh provinoo.  Of courso, no such system wilt  be adopted, ono very good reason  being that the provinoo of Queboo,  whore nome little trouble in like to  be encountered in enforcing conscription, has boon notoriously lax  in sending along reoruits..

McCrory. chief of drainage investigations, U.S. department of agriculture, by I>ewis A. Jones, senior  drainage engineer. It contains ten  blue prints showing ...the channels,  the watershed, water stages, discharge  curve, maximum stages, profiles, proposed dikes and ditches of the Kootenai river and the report is supplemented with several type-written  pages of tabular data upon which the  report is based.  The survey pf the Kootenai valley  was started in February, 1915, by  Engineers Jones and Kelly. During  May and June of the same year Engineer Ramsey made gaugings'of the  Kootenai river and the next year,  during the same months, gaugiii'gs  were made by Engineers Jones and  Kelly.  In the  report it is stated  that the  flood conditions of the Kootenai valley  are caused by high water stage in the  Kootenai lake together with the inadequate capacity of the present river  channel.    To obtain relief the amount  of flood water must be 'reduced or the  river     channel    must    be   enlarged.  Partial reclamation could be obtained  by closing nil. the   openings   in   the  preseiiij   oaxiics   Va.   ti.e   nye  banks now  average ten  feet higher  than the bottom lands and the records  show that on  aii  average of once in  three years the  water overflows  the  tops of these banks.... If the openings  in the river banks were closed and the  creeks leveed, from  the river  to tiie  foothills the bottom'; lands' could   be  cultivated at least -thi?8fe son t^ of four  carrying out of this' plan would result in the partial reclamation of  34,004 acres of land" in the Kootenai  valley. Four crops out of five probably would be protected against the  overflow of the river. The landowners should not conclude from this  statement that after such improvements are made a. damaging flood  would result only in five years. It  is possible that two or even three  floods may occur in successive years  but judging from past records such  events are not likely and in a period  of 20 or 25 years not more than four  or five overflows should be expected  under this plan. The average cost of  carrying out this plan would bo about  $30 per acre for the benefitted land in  the United States and slightly less if  the benefitted land in Canada were  assessed its proportionate share of the  cost of diversion. All the work under  this plan is entirely practical but" the  making of the diversion is one that  must be decided by the Canadian  government. . The . adoption of Plan  No. 7 is reoommended. Arrangements  should be made with the Canadian  government for the diversion of the  waters of the upper* Kootenai. As  lias been stated before, no detailed  study of this diversion feature has  been made but it is believed that $5  per acre, for land benefitted in the  United States, would be a liberal  estimate of the cost." ,- .  Plan  No. 8   provides   that   "under  any delay in  arrangement  with  th<.V  Canadian government for   construct-,  ing, the diversion  of  the  upper Koo  tenai   should    not   prevent   the   im  mediate   carrying   out   of  feature of Plan No.  7,   namely.   th������.  closing   of   the river bank   opening^  and the installation   of interior drain-i-  age.    By  this  work alone,   which  it  is estimated  would cost $25 per acre  for land benefitted,   it is believed that  two   crops    out    of   three   could   be  protected from  damage  by overflow.  As a result of   all the investigations  made the adoption   of Plan  No.  7  is  recommended    but    the    levee    and  work   should    be   done   at  Celestino Nigro, a Bossland merchant, has been fined $42 for selling  ordinary vinegar for the malt variety.

The. study shows that all  floods equal or less than that of 1911  could have been cared for by closing  the openings in _the '-present river  bank. ���������"-   ,..  The engineers state that further  protection could be secured by diverting the "run-off" from about 1825  square niiies of the tipper Kootenai  watershed into the Columbia river at  Canal Flats The effect would be to  diminish the heights and volumes of  all floods in the Kootenai river below  the point of diversion. Tables showing the reduction of the volume of  flood water consequent upon the  diversion of the Kootenai at Canal  Flats prove that if the Kootenai had  been diverted last spring at Canal  Flats the height of the river at Bonners Ferry would havo been 29.9 foot  instead of 32.85 foot. If the river  banks were closed and the Kootenai  could bo diverted at Canal Flats the  engineers state that floods could bo  expected in the futuro not more than  once in flvo or six years.  Tf, in addition, tiie wont arm of  Kootenai lake wore enlarged, the river  channel would then bo capable of  handling tho flow of water of all  floods which havo occurred in tho lasfc  23 years vvith tho possible oxcoption  of thoso of 1891,1003 and 1810,'  Eight different plana aro discussed  in tho report for tho reclamation of  tho Kootenay valloy, four for ������om-  roclamation.

Plan.-No. 1. calls for a system of  leyees along the river, banks and interior drainage system and 'pumping  plants, ��������� Uuder this plan 31,000 acres  could be reclaimed against a flood  like that of 1916 at a total cost of  $2,100,000 or an average of..$68 per  acre. This plan is not considered  practical by the engineers owing to  the susceptibility of the levees to  failure, the expense of maintenance  and the-high cost of construction.  Plan No. 2 calls for a system of  levees and enlarging the vyest arm of  Kootenai lake. This plan would cost  about $250,000 more than Plan No. 1  and while it is practical is not advised  on account of the high cost.  Plan No. 3 calls for levees and the  diversion of the upper Kootenai river  at Canal Flats. Under" this plan the  cost of reclamation per acre would  not exeeed $47 per acre, on the jiv-  erage if the land in Canada was also  assessed for its proportionate benefit.  This plan involves the co-opera lion of  the Canadian goveiMimont, the work  in Canada being absolutely necessary  to the protection afforded by the  levee system. The levees under this  system would have to be at least six  foot high.  Through fear thnt the levees might  not prove practical the engineers do  not recommend Plan No. 3.  Owing to the cost, about $65 per  acre, tho adoption of Plan 1 is not  advisablo either. This plan calls for  asyatem of levees, interior drainage  and pumping, the diversion of the  Kootenai river and the enlargement  of tho west arm of Kootenai Lake.  Partial reclamation can lie nee tired  through Plan No. f������ which calls for the  closing of all oponings in the present  river banks, interior drainage and  pumping plants and enlarging tho  west arm of Kootenai lake. If all tho  land overflowed in the United 8taluti  and Canada were anse-Hseii tin* cost  per aero would lie about $40.

Arsenical Fly Poison  Rated as Dangerous  United    States    Government    Issues  Warning on the Peril of  Fly Poison  Dr. Ernest A.

Dr. Sweet considers their use a menace which threatens every home.  That thc fly poison peril is a real one  is proved by thc fact that the American Press has recorded 106 child  poisoning cases in the last three  years.  Dr. Sweet advises his readers to  destroy flies some other way than  with arsenic fly poison. He says,  "Of other ��������� fly poisons mentioned,  mention should bc made, for the purpose of condemnation, of those composed of arsenic. Fatal cases of the  poisoning of children through thc  use of such compounds are far too  frequent, and owing to the rcscmb-**-  lance of arsenical poisoning to" summer diarrhoea and cholera infantum  we believe that the cases reported do  not, by any means, comprise the total. Arsenical fly destroying devices must, therefore, be rated as extremely dangerous and should never  be used, even if other measures are  not at hand."

In this statement he has indicated two of the ways in which  .Germany is undergoing strangulation; a third one is the economic deterioration of the whole empire. In  other words, the pressure on Germany is that of three differing but  correlated forces���������military, exerted  by means of armies and navies; economic, caused by unprofitable expenditures and an effective blockade,  and political, encouraged and intensified by the so far successful revolution in Russia. Any one of these factors might prove, acting alone, inadequate to effect the collapse of  Germany's resisting power; it seeins  absolutely certain that their close  co-operation must soon reduce the  "Central Powers" to'submission. If  it does not, the final catastrophe will  be all the more complete when it  does come. Subjugation, exhaustion,  connote inevitable threefold ruin.^  There are daily increasing indications that all the Central Powers-^-  Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria  and Turkey���������arc casting about for  some way of bringing- the war to an  end. They know by this time that  there is not the slightest chance of  a break-up of the Allied combination  against them. While the Allies are  . not likely to make a separate peace  with any of the nations on the other  side, the fact that it is open to them  to do so may be a means of bringing  an irresistible pressure to bear on  Germany to ask for peace terms,  with an honest offer of reasonable  conditions. Meanwhile the fighting  must go on. In such a war there-'can  be no provisional cessation of hostilities. Against a foe so efficient as  the German armies in France aud  Belgium there must be maintained an  increasingly vigorous and sustained  series of attacks. Sooner or later the  whole combination must break down,  and the harder the pressurp the  shorter will be the interval .of suspense and sacrifice.���������Toronto T*lobe.

Contentment in India  Large Portion of thc Country Is Not  Under British Administration  "The notion prevails in the United  States that all India belongs to the  British and is administered by  them,'"' says Saint Nihol Singh in  a recent interview. "This is an  utterly erroneous idea, A very-  large and populous portion of the  peninsula is in the possession of its  own people, and is ruled by the������.i,  with little or no interference from  the British. I have coined the term  'Indian India' to differentiate between the India belonging to Indians  and that in the possession of the  British. Indian India,'with its area  of 850,000 square miles, is almost  one-third as large as continental  Uuited States. Its population, 78,-  000,000 persons, is a little more than  four-fifths that of this country. Politically, British India is united. It  is divided into > three presidencies  and twelve, provinces, which arc under the supreme government of India, presided over by the Viceroy  and Governor-General, who is under  the Secretary of State for India���������a  member of the British cabinet. Indian India, on the contrary, is not  one political entity.  "During recent years I have ��������� had  the privilege of coming in close contact with several Indians who rule  in their own right and name, and I  have watched their public and private lives. Without a single exception, I have found the Indian rulers  to be men of great administrative  capacity and statesmanship, all demoted to the. welfare of their subjects and interested in all sorts of  reform movements. Not many public servants or business men in  America or elsewhere work so hard  as do these Indian potentates."  Hated by Germans for His Sympathy  With British  Prisoners  The plain talk-by J. W. Gcrar-d,  ex-minister to Germany, in. New  York about the treatment given  prisoners by the Germans, is merely  a repetition of what he said to the  authorities in Berlin. His unpopularity in Berlin because of his refusal  to keep his eyes shut to -conditions  was extreme. A correspondent of an  English paper, writing after escap  ing from the German capital, said oi  Ambassador Gerard:  "Of the neutral ambassadors that I  met in Berlin the only one who  seemed to me to have any outstanding personality was Mr. Gerard, the  American ambassador, who shared  with Mr. Lloyd George the reputation of being the best hated man in  the Fatherland.  "At the Wilhelmstrasse he was  positively detested because of his  outspoken remarks about the disgraceful condition of the British  prisoner camps in Germany, and  also because of his repeated warnings to the German government as  to the grave effect ou German-  American diplomatic relations that  would be caused by resumption of  unlimited piracy. There was much  talk of a plot to murder him, and I  recall the great excitement which  prevailed when he_ wras thc object of  a rude demonstration at the theatre."  OWTOITS  Ni  c*bVir?ffY  ARGUMENT FROM BASIS OF  DOLLARS AND CENTS  Building Up the Town Adds Dollars  to the Value of &e Farm  Land and Other Fixed.Investments; and Means -Greater ri  Social and Educational Advantages  -w  An American Tribute  The closer your land is to a good  town, the more money it takes to buy  it. We all know that. About the  first thing the owner tries to do when  you dicker for a piece of land, is to  justify the high price you are asking  by pointing out how close the land  is to town and the good roads leading to it. He kno\vs~this is thc most  appealing argument he can put up.  Land ciose to town and adjoining  good roads is not oidy desirable because crops can be marketed with the  least trouble and expense, but there  are other social and economical advantages as well.  Consider the cold' matter of what  a town is worth to the people owning land in the vicinity, measured  from a dollars and cents standpoint.  Mr. O.R.

'  Huns Grossly Deceived  Women Most Gullible of all, Writes  Northcliffe's Man  Writing of middle class Germans,  Mr. D. Thomas Curtin said: "While  there are an increasing number of  doubters among the" German mankind as to the accuracy of statements issued by the government, in  thc class with which I inostly came  into contact im Germany the women  are blindfolded and believe all they  are told. So strong," too, is the influence of government propaganda on  the people of Germany that in a  town where I met two Ehglish ladies  married to Germans they believed  that Germany had Verdun in her  grasp, had annihilated the English  tioops (mainly black) on the Somme  had defeated the English licet in thc  battle of Skagcrack (Jutland), and  reduced thc greater part of the fortifications, docks, and munition factories of London to ruins by Zeppelins. Their anguish for the fate of  their English relations was sincere,  and tliey were intensely hopeful that  England would accept any sort of  terms of peace in order to prevent  thc invasions which some people in  Germany  still  believe possible.  Austrian Balderdash  How Strange Is the Austrian Idea of  State  The Vienna Arbcitcr Zeitung, organ of the Austrian Socialists, quotes  the following passage from the  Rcichsbote, the organ of the court  party, as a typical example of the  condensed balderdash characteristic  of this paper:  "in all that concerns the spirit of  public circumstances, the justice and  righteousness of the government of  the State, thc sanity of the con.slitu-  tion and its policy during the war,  wc in Austria arc incomparably superior to our enemies,'How grandly  ntamls thc constitution of Austria-  Hungary beside the constitutions of  St;>**���������������* liVc- France and America,  where the leaders of thc nation arc  condemned to be more mouthpieces  for plutocrats.  "Austria declared war on .Serbia  because our splendid heir to tin-  throne had been nundercd, nnd because it was necessary to root out  thc nests of the couspiratcrs. How  absolutely moral wa������i ������uich a motive  'v*.-?.p. d  for a long time.  For instance, in the locality investigated, thc 79 farms within two  miles of town had an avera'gc value  of $78.70 per acre as compared with  $70.20 per acre for thc 183 farms  from two to four miles from town';  $60.90 per acre for the 126" farms  four to six miles from town; $58 20  for the 113 farms six to eight miles  from town, and $55.90 for the 149  farms ovcr eight miles from town.  Mr. Johnson says that thc most  rapid decrease in value occurred in  the first six miles, after which the  difference of a mile or two from  town made less relative difference. |  In another instance, he points out  that 42 farms valued at $100 or more  per acre, had an average haul cf  about two and one-half miles to market; 62 in the $80 group had nearly  three miles, and the 275 in the $00  group five miles to haul, while 246 in  the $40 group averaged six and one-  fourth  miles  to  town.  These figures are startling.   Listen  to  this:  In one locality investigated, a farm!  of 160 acres two and one-half miles '  from town had a market value of |  $16,000, while the same kind of farm  located six and one-fourth miles from  town was only worth $6,400. And  still, if yoii told the man who owned  the first farm that his home town  was actually worth in dollars and  cents to him, personally, $10,000, he  would probably spend a good deal of  time trying to show you that he  would be better off without the town  at all. We have gotten so in the habit of lambasting our home, town,  most of the time for sonre petty political reason, that we frequently refuse to see the truth when it. is placed before us in actual figures.  . Just thc same, when we gei: off by  ourselves, overcome our jealousies  and temporarily forget about the  town man that we have it iu for, then  wc really havc to admit that the  home town is far and away the most  valuable asset lo every man, woman  and child iu  the  community.  This leads us a step further. Once  wc commence asking questions, we  no sooner h-ave one ol theni answered than wc ask another. Our lirst  question was "What's lhe. good of  the home town?" and we answered it  by saying that, among other thing?.,  it really donated $10,000 to one man  and like amounts, proportional fly, to  every other man owning land in thc  community.  Aud now wc ask tho second question, "What makes a real, live, valuable home town?" Wc might dodge  thc question by answering, "Lots of  tilings," but, really, if wc arc honest,  wc will get close to the truth by saying, "Thc merchants," because without the merchants there would be no  -sown. It i> just as impossible to have  a town without merchants as it is to  have a lake without water. Thc xner-  other things have to be favorable,  but the fact remains, that without  merchants, you would have no town,  and the better the mercantile establishments, the better the    town���������al-  ..���������_,.,.  Now, we move along to thc third  question. "How is the home town to  have good merchants?" Dear, friends,  therel Is no -secret'about:it -at all.  Good Stores iri youi* home town are-  the result of growth. They have to  be invited, encouraged and maintained. You have to get them just like  you mature superior cattle, horsed  and hogs, by treating them fairly  and giving them a chance to grow.  In the language of the street, "You  can't play a -lone hand in your com������  tnunity and get away with it very  long," and the business game is jtiat  the same. If the town is to help you,  you must help the town, and- th������  beauty of it is, by benefiting the  town, you always and., invariably  benefit yourself most.  These benefits are direct and indirect. Building up the town adds  dollars to the value of your land and  other fixed investments. That point  is settled. Nobody seriously disputes  it. It means greater social and edu������  cational advantages, benefits thai  cannot be measured by dollars and  cents, but while apparently indirect,  they are direct again in the sense  that they add to the value of you?  fixed investments, because these aro  among the desirable things foj?  which people generally are^willing to1  pay.  In summing up,    as    the    lawyers-  say, sifting out all the evidence and  considering a    few    pertinent    facts, .  you first v.rant a good home    town. ..  and you want it as near to you    as  possible���������and,    further,    you      want  good roads leading to it.  Now, to have a good town, yotf  must have good stores-���������there is no  other w.iy to make it���������and to have/  good stores and good merchants, yot8  must give them a chance to -live-  thrive and grow. You must treat  them fairly. You do not abuse you?  stock, becaixse such treatment doe's  not pay, and the^ same personal \n*  tercst. is at stake in community build*  ing. You must consider the merchants of your town as a community  investment in which you are both In*  directly and directly interested. YotJ  arc a stockholder, as it were, in you������  home town, and thc better you make  your home town, the better your in*  vestment will be.  You can't makc your home towly  better unless you are- on the square  with it and give the business interests  tliere thc proper chance for a norma^  and legitimate growth. Remember  the story of the farmer who was si**  selfish and short-sighted that he tried  to make money by stunting his hogs*  When he finally sold thc runts, he.  found that he had paid a mighty big  price for thc feed hc had saved.  Just how many of us have driven  into town with any thought of what  our loss would be if that town were  wiped out entirely and never rcplac*  ed? How many of us have consider*  cd that the town really meant any*  thing to us except for a little wil4  talk on our part at times? Hov/  many of us have considered that the  merchants of the town were conferr*  ing upon us, and upon all members  of thc community, advantages worth)  in dollars aud cents immeasurably  more than any profits they got out  of UB?

Cranbrook is going to hav< a first-  class fall fair this year���������in September.  in the Parish Hall last Thursday evening was quite largely attended, and  several hours were pleasantly whiled  away at cards, games asnd dnocing,  with refreshments at. the close.   The  winners at whist were Mrs. W. H.  Crawford, who tied with Mrs. Mallandaine and won out on the cut; A.  R. Swanson of Sirdar, and Ray Crisler, who got the honors for low score.  Owing to the increased business contracted for 1017 the commission charged by the Union this season on Strawberries will be re  duced to 10 per cent.   Last season the  Union charged 10per cent, and  an additional charge of 5c. per crate, so that this season the total  charges wiii be reduced 5c. per crate.  We would also call attention to the fact that this charge is on the  f.o.b.-Creston price. Firms who are operating on a commission basis  are in most cases charging 16 per cent, and in every instance are  making this charge on the selling price at destination.  For instance, when the f.o.b. price of Strawberries is $2.00 our  charges this season will be 20c. per crate. Suppose instead of shipping  these through the Union they are shipped to Calgary to be handled  on a commission of 15 per cent., Express of 42c. will have to be added  and the commission reckoned on $2.42.   This would amount to 38c,  than the Union chai-cre.

The weak point in connection with shipping fruit out to an  outside firm to handle is that the shipper is placed at the mercy of the  firm's honesty, or lack of honesty.  Should a firm on the prairie find it necessary to bolster up a  weak financial condition by using some of their customers' money  there ia- no way of being sure that returns are correct, except by  taking legal action. Buying a lawsuit usually turns out to be a poor  business investment.  rowers  LIMITED  F"  mm  We have opened up and are  showing a large >rjange of  POTTER'S Fast?

Creston was favored with a very  welcome 12-hour rain on Monday  night and Tuesday morning which  coming at a time when planting is  practically completed and followed by  fine weathor is bringing vegetation in  every line along in great shape. On  the hills, of course, snow was much in  evidence, coming down almost to the  IGGG-fool level In some spots.
