Henderson  had viewed them and pronounced an  inquest unnecessary, the body was  placed in a coffin and taken to Creston cemetery, where a grave had al-  l-eady been prepared.  The burial services was taken   by  ' Rev. W. M. Lees, on arrival of the  noon train, oa   which were about 75  Wynndel people-���������the Wynndel school  children marching in   a body^to the  cemetery-���������who came up to p^y^ their  last respects.

Deceased was an old-timer in Cres-  ton.yalley, and has the.distincton of  being the first poultry rancher  Wynndel, at least, has a record of.  Along with Teddy Haskins, now of  Eriftkeon, the late Mr. Dixon came to  Wynndel some seventeen years ago,  and his first enterprise was chicken  raising on a considerable scale���������in  those days. He fa'ftS! resided in the  Valley practically all Mie time since  then. Prior to coming, to Wynndel,  in 1000 he had been at Kitchener,  where he did some trapping, and  prior to that he followed the same  life in the Peace River country. He  developed the fruit ranch now owned  by Norman Craigie, which he sold  about three years ago. He was a  native of Ireland, born at Sti-alnum,  in the country Tryone, about $8 years  ago, and was unmarried.  Ho Was a nian vvho rightly enjoyed  the friendship and confidence of all  vvho knew him, and was perhaps best  known for thc much gotid work ho  did as trustee and supevvifor of the  school building aud grounds ut Wynndel. No death in recent yours lias  ������������������oat the widespread gloom over tho  Valley that is occasioned by the panning of Bob Dixon.  they will provide their own accommodation and will be in charge of a  competent supervisor. If they come  it will certainly help the picking  problem ont immensely.  Miss Hardman, one of the teachers  at Creston, has'bought up the crop of  strawberries on Pto^ .Hilton Young's  ranch, and will be along with a half-  dozen pickers to gather them the early  part of July.  C. Hall has made a similar deai foi  the berries, on. the '-Pochin ranch,  whose owner is now in Arizona^ It is  estimated this ranch will haye at  least 400 crates to market, ahd Mr.  Hall has already secured a likely-  looking staff of pickers.  A Canyon City branch of the Creston Valley Red Cross Society was  successfully organized at an enthusia-  tio meeting of the ladies, held '.at. th*  church {Thursday afternoon last, at  which there was an attendance of  almost twenty, and which :was ad  dressed by Mrs. Forrester of Creston,  a -vice-president of the Creston organization. The officers chosen here are;  President, Mira. Cf. Blair; and secretary-  treasurer, .Mrs.. Bdwaicds. The initial  meeting for sewing arid to-complete  Organization details was held at Mrs.  Knott's -on - Wednesday afternoon.

The W.C.T.U. ladies gathered at  Mrs. Maxwell's home yesterday afternoon foi- their annual meeting and  election of officers.  An estimate of the strawberry crop  in the Erickson section this year is for  close to 200$ crates. A eomsiderable  quantity of this will be sold independently this season.  Al. Hendren of Creston lias been  busy here for several days erecting a  pricking shed on the Duperry ranch.  Mr. and Mrs. C. McKinlay of  Medicine Hat; Alta., arrived tho  latter part pf the  week on  a   visit to  Mr. and Mrs., P. .Putnam.  Fraser & Son shipped out the last  of their 1917 lettuce erop on Friday  last.

One thing is absolutely certain now *  and that is that the supply of pickers  will be at-least  adequate for almost  any emergency.   Due possibly to the  .miners strike, anew source of supply P.  is opened-up   at Fernie,  where the  I.O.D.E., a woman's organization, has  been   heard   from   offeri*ag   to   seud  along an. unlimited supply of likely ���������  'help. .   ��������� ��������� .    ."  ��������� The Soldiers of the Soil peeiple at;  Nelson have been equally energeti  and iu a letter to Tna Rbvisw from  Rev, O.

He says in part:  "At present we expect to have  aboat 20 boys at Creston, in camp on  the Recreation Grounds, if these are.  available, under "W. P. Freeman, one  of our High School teachers, who will  tie general^ supervisor. At Wynndel  we hope to have 30 boys for the straw- .  berry season.

There's quite a "keen demand^ for  Creston Valley cream this year. Last  week this section :was favored with a  visit from J. C. ^Phillips, looking after  the interests of the Cranbrook Butter  Co. On Tuesday and Wednesday E.  W. Langley was here; gunning, for  patrons for the Curlew Caeamery Co.  of Nelson.  This lattei firm is at present operating three butter ahd icecream making  plants, two of which arc in B.C., at  Grand Forks and Nelson, with a  third jit Curlew, Wash. They took  over the creamery at Nelson about  two years ago and right now ~ have  about transformed it into one of the  tidiest buttermaking plants in the  province, operating a 1200 pound butter capacity chura as well as having  their own i'je making plant. "*"  Right now they are paying 15 cents  a pound butterfat, and the same price  applies for either sweet or sour cream.  Cream shipped from Crow points is  taken in charge the same evening it  reaches Nelson. Another feature they  have found of great help to their  patrons is tho follow-up system. A  bystcmatlc check is kept on all cream  tested And. shippers promptly adyisod  when the quality of their cream is  falling down and explaining the probable cause for its doflcioncy.  Last year, Mr. Langley tells us, that  the total output of their three plants  averaged 6000 pounds of butter dally  and that iu th������i ice- craim r.o:tson thewo  Bamo plants were turning out 7i>0  gallons of this favorite hot weather  refreshment each day, thoir market  for tho latter extending to many  Okanagan points, and ou to Murritt,  in the Slmllkamoon country.  He mot with every encouragement  during, his short ������tay horo, and will be  Utrli nn a more������Jttmid������*d trip in a few  weeks.  Biath���������On June 14th, to Mr: and  Mrs. Arthur J. Collis, a daughter.  Victor Carr was a visitor 'at Nelson  the latter part of the week for the  session of the Dominion Railway  Commission.  Haying has ^commenced in these  parts. W. A. McMurtoie was busy  the early part of the week cutting the  first crop of alfalfa along with some  rye.  Mr. and Mrs. Foster and two chill-  ren of Calgary arrived on Sunday for  a visit with the latter's parents, Mr.  "M^-Eireeman will likely arrive  ntv  and Mrs, W. Barraclough.  Mr: and Mrs. Jackson of Carbon,  Alta., arrived on Wednesday, to spend  a short holiday with Mr. and Mrs. R.  Stewart.  All points in the Valley will please  take notice that Alice Siding claims  the honor of exporting the first orate  of strawberries of the 1017 shipping  season���������and still has about 3000 more  to go out. Thr initial crate is from  the Barraclough ranch and was shipped through the Union yesterday.  Jacky Smith, who has been laid up  in an English hospital for almost  eight months back, recovering from a  shrapnel wound which cost him one of  his logs and necessitated a series of  operatpns. Is now getting along with  very little medical attention and is  expecting to get hack to Canada the  early part of July.  Mrs. R. Stewart canto within 24  hours of capturing tho "S alloy honors  for early strawberries this year, having a few cups to market on Wednesday. Mr. Brownrigg of lirlckson,  however, had brought in a small supply the day provIons. Tho experts  are ajjre^d^ however, that the Stewart j express cars.'  jy^*f|^^,o^^h������9pth,  'le^yr-raH-^^^  ,;!j"i������ysiiyj'^ 3.; Pit P.  anyone'ciin handle boys ^  can' ahS'l-am^^sure the fruitgrowers- ^  will enjoy th*eir Celadons* with W  "We hope to arrange a public meeting in Creston" *st the:~ outset when the "j  ranchers and fruit growers can get together to hear of this' nation-wide .  movement to prevent waste. The  boys are now being enlisted and there  is a good response."  . And, quite natural like,  now it in  noised abroad that a liberal supply of  outside help is available, Valley youths  of all sizes and ages are coming forward in numbers never  known of in  past years and asking that work be  reseryed for them.   And most likely  there will be plenty of work, for all.  Those   interested   are not expecting  perfection from the imported, pickers  any more than from the local help  and, besides, the season will likely be  a short one, with plenty of fruit to be  gathered evoay day while the berries  are on.  Prospects for a bumper yield were  never more promising than they are  right now for both strawberries und  raspberries, and with a considerable  downpour of   rain within  the   next  few days-a record yield of the early-  season berries would be assured.   It is  expected pickers will draw down as  high as 86 cents a crate for strawberries and 50 cents for raspberries.  ���������   The Dominion Express  Company is  this year emphasizing the necessity of  greater co-operation on   the part of  shippers,   Two    ventilated  cars  are  being  proyided.   One  of  these  will  take on  berries for points north of  Mrcleod,   Alta., and   the   other  the  Crow line and east points.

Why Wheat Lodges  From an Italian experiment station comes a report of investigation  into the causes of lodging in wheat.  A high percentage of water in the  stalks indicates a liability to lodge.  It comes from three causes: high  content of nutritive salts iu the soil,  abundant moisture, and insufficient.  The opposite holds good in the  lack of a tendency to lodge, and so  a prolonged drought in plants raised  in poor soil and kept in full light,  eliminates any lodging tendency.  Fully manured plants were found  lo be subject to lodging, but if  poorly irrigated���������ov in a dry season  ���������there is little danger.  ;*������> OSTERMOOR <������Q>������ OSTERMOOR <<<3t  ^f*S mm***a. j**? ���������������������������*������������������-J.-V- ������ - ���������     .^mm^'***.-.<t..*m*^.*mm..*mrmmmm*,i-.mm<*m**,mm.mm*i*m**,t.i ���������-���������.��������� ���������- >n-'������������'    ��������� " "'- *������������������*- -mm .mmm***,.****,,******.*^**  I  THE F.VME OF A NAME INVITES SUBSTITUTION-****  YOU PAY ONLY ONCE FOR  THJS FAMOUS  fKTFDMflPlB  MATlKESSg'  -wliit'li hn������ the name "OSTERMOOR" woyeuJu the binding,  min th**; border of this adVerttBemeut������ to protect you ut;aiti������t  niiutuLcrt. __  ...._,.    .~~        g*       m.,.  for 50 veai'tt  ������tpXo  of tfCRtfuI sleep  ������I A������k your denier for the "OSTEUMOOR" or write u������ for tho  <iuiu<-. of youc ucarci't cgcus.

JUNE 22  High Wattes*  The    following    pronouncement  from last week's Kaslo Kootenaian  will be of interest to those who are  just now wrestling   with   the high  water question.    Here it is:     'It is  generally believed that   the critical  stage is  passed as far  as  having  extreme high   water is concerned  this year.    While there has  been  aii   kinds  of fresh suow   on    the  higher levels, and the winter's crop  remains to a depth of several  feet,  heavily packed  and   soaked   with  water, the snow has  gone so much  from the lower levels as to make it  easier for the drainage  system   of  the country to take care of the rush  of water   should   a real   hot  spell  occur.    Such   a     hot   speli    may  break almost any day now, but in  the meantime   every   day    of cool  weather   from   now   on    decreases  roads in these parts���������all on account  of a dearth ' of finance, 'we - are  assured. Perhaps under, all the  circumstances the present unfortunate state of affairs should be  overlooked, but if the administration is to retain the confidence of  the electorate a little overtime  effort on the part of the new  minister is highly desirable.  Another Mteoson  The suggestion   has   been   made  to The Review that  when   the  B.C.   end   of   the   national   committee that is said   to be busy now  devising ways to  handle  returned  soldiers   and   furnish   employment  after the war,   why   not   this   province get busy on   the  reclamation  of the Kootenay flats; with the idea  in view of taking  care  of the men  who are anxiuiis to go on- the land.  The   idea   is   that   only   would-be  ! agriculturists be employed   on this  i work, they   getting   definite assurance Lhat in   addition   to  drawing  regulation pay   while  on  reclamation work that in   case  of   remain-  j ing here they are   to   get   land   ou  ��������� easy terms and iit reclamation-cost  rather than   increases   the   danger j prjw.

In these few j what will, assure liy, -hi   o te of the  words,    perhaps   more   eloquently !  than he knew, did Rev. W. M. Lees  pay well merited tribute to the late  Bob  Dixon   at  the  brief but   impressive burial service  on Bui-day  afternoon.    And  as  was befitting  the occasion   the   turnout  of the  younger and older Wynndel citizens  was in every way  worthy of   the  .good friend  and  citizen they  had  gathered to paj' their final respects  to.    Truly a man   who went.about  doing good, even to his   own hindrance at times,   was   the  deceased;  and best of all,   the  less  that was  heard   of   his    good     works   and  generosity    the    better     was    he  pleased.    In his passing  Wynndel  school   district   loses a   friend    to  whom   it is   debtor   for   unselfish  efforts   iu   more    directions   than  most people are  aware.    And his  good work at Wynndel   is but the  counterpart of similar effort where-  ever   he found  opportunity.    The  Creston   Valley   in   particular and  the   world   in   general   would    be  much the better   for   many    more  citizens of  this  type.    Requiescat  grandest agricultural   areas  in all  EC.  When this province itself is  shouting for agricultural develop  ment, and just now the same cry  coming From all other countries,  why 20,000 or more acres of land  that will the first year it is available produce 65 bushels-of wheat,  100 of oats, 15 tons of potatoes and  4 of hay to the acre, and in very  fVw years pay back to the authorities every dollar spent on it���������and  with interest���������to say nothing of  being a continuous producer of  provincial revenues, should in these  times remain unnoticed does not  speak well for the administrative  capacity of those in charge, of  affairs.  General Merchant  Creston  The Picket* ProMem  Another StiewLWinistep*  Changes in the B.C. cabinet are  happening with surprising regularity those times.    Thc   latest   addition     is     John     Hart,     M.P.P.,  Victoria,     who      succeeds       Mr.  Brewster  as   minister  of   finance,  which department the premier lias  administered   since   the   regretted  death of Hon.   Ralph   Smith some  months ago.     And   tho  end is not  yot,   according    to   some   of   tho  political    soothsayers,     who    will  have    it    that     Hon.      Dr.    King,  minister of public works, and Hon.  Wm.    Sloan,   minister    of  mines,  will bo  handing in   their  resignation's almost  any   day   mow,     Another   resignation    of    leaner   importance was   that   of   Mr, Woart,  r.JnY.h. \)y   jjot-iJk-d  ������.-.,.������  i.  that he would have uo moro of tho  honor and emoluments of tho  legislative speakership.

To those who will be giving  employment to these Nelson youths  it might be well to forewarn them  that absolute perfection in help of  this sort should not bo looked for  iu all cases. Boys will be boys on  occasion���������and they would hardly  be worthy the appelation if tliey  wero not, sometimes.  As wo understand tlio situation  the boys who aro coming are being  carefully selected. They havo been  under observance for a matter of  six months now. Tho mon behind  the movement have a pretty fair  idea of the situation at this end as  woll, sc there is ovory reason to  expect the best results.  - At any rale lhe rancher inuu  little or no risk. He advances no  travelling money, furnishes neither  board or lodging, unless ho chooses  to, and has some satisfaction in  knowing that if the help of this  hort he gets is not worth keeping  in-mind    thu   nbir*.*   lu>   im   under no  mend or end the situation so far as  that particular youth or youths is  concerned.  The availability of this much  outside help will also have a  wonderful tendency to steady the  local labor market. In the past  local juveniles have been hard to  get along with, particularly when  the fruit to be gathered was getting light and more aud more  ground had to be covered in order  to gather a crate of berries, or the  weather was hot, or a dozen ov  more other plausible but irritating  excuses for failure to. turn out to  work.  The picker trouble has ever  been with us, more especially for  raspberries, which are at the  height of the season about the  time most boys and girls seem to  feel they have had enough of that  sort of work for ine season.  This added source of help, with  its admirable system of distribution, with the efficient supervision  it is proposed to give it in every  detail, is well worthy of every encouragement, though, we trust not  to the exclusion of any local help  willing and able to deliver the  goods. Give the home talent the  preference; if this year's orop in all  lines is up to advance notices there  will be lots of work for all hands.  B.C. Fruit Market, Lethbridge,  are all making a bid for a share  of the berry business through the  columns of THE REVIEW. Incidentally, it is also a tribute %o the  value of advertising in this paper,  and justly so as The Review now  goes directly info 90 per cent, of  the Valley homes���������and is borrowed  into 9 of the remaining 10 per  cent.  The move of Creston Board of  Trade to jack up the public works  department and John Keen, M.P.  P., to get men busy otr some very  badly-needed road repairs is alright so far as it goes but, like  three fingers of scotch in the "dry"  belt, it don't go far enough. Now  that our hitherto seeming paternal  government has doubled the taxes  and at the same time curtailed  local public expenditure, - the board  would hardly transgress any of its  excellent rules and regulations in  starting a movement for the erection of the major portion of the  Valley into a rural municipality.  Neither on the score of economy  or utility can the present state of  local self government be excused.  bf socks knitted by girls.

If word that was being passed about  in the camp at Windsor Great Park,  near London, England, the latter  part of May has proven correct, it is  fair to ..surmise that the members of  the Creston,'.-.Forestry Draft are now-  hard atTworksomewhere In France.  Thb Ksvibw correspondent with  the corps,,, writing us on May 29th  says:^ ���������'Cm'f "Friday last 21 of our boys  were transferred to No. 2 Company,  242nd Winnipeg Forrestry Battalion.  We were all very sore to think we  had to part, although Heath was the  oiily Creston man in the 21, as we had  a full, logging complement Jn pur company, andin consequence, the captain  made a severe kick about losing these  men. ^However, oh Monday'morning  several cases of measles broke out in  the Winnipeg unit and our 21 men  were immediately transferred back to  their old quarters and. we got orders  to prepare to leave for France in plact  of the Winnipeg outfit. It is impossible to describe how happy all hands  felt on' getting word that it was  France for theirs any day now."  At that date the Creston contingent  was still ib quarantine, which the men  found more disagreeable than being  cooped tip' in an internment camp.  Ptes. Hope and Bannon are now on  duty in the medical branch of the  camp. The men are to get a brand  new outfit before, going into real  forestry work, and are hoping to get  a few days leave to at least see Lou-.,  don, which is only 20 miles awa;?  from their present location. v  The weather at that time was hot;  the grub pretty fair but so far no  Can adian mail had reached any of  the soldiers. The crops in that part  of England were looking fine and once  already the boys had dined on stewed  rhubarb, but had no hope of .any  strawberries, which the native recruits recalls should now be in common  use ih Creston Vaiiey.  The trip act oss the Atlantic occupied  eleven days.- There were several  other steamers crossing on a similar  errand and in consequence there was  a considerable. escort" of battleships,  etc. Drill and route marches are the  order of the day in the camp, several  thousand troops go out marching together and the country right novv is  certainly ; beautiful���������the - country  trayersed is the king's estate in Berkshire. Even Sam Scott admits that  the roads are the best ever; superior  to thoss at Erickson, eyen, which is  some admission for Sam. The boys  ran across a brother of Geo. Brode-  rick's on the trip across. He had  signed on at Calgary.  The unit had a look at forestry  operations about two miles from camp  whore they have a sawmill running  with a capacity of 24,000 feet  the first glimpse of the old  they have yet had. Capt.  daine has now 170 men in  pany, among the newcomers being  quite . a number of Quebec loggers.  The boys are working the full ten-hour  shift in their English camp. They  are on parade from 7.30 till 12 and  from 1.15 till 5, and the discipline is  very much more strict than at'  Creston.  outbuildings.

"No private citizen knows how  many miles of England's, railroads  have already been laid in France," hc  said. "But ship after ship is cross-  t ing the Channel, loaded with secondhand rails, and ties; and men are  busy tearing up more track to send  all the time."  The military authorities do not reveal the destination to which the  railway material is sent; but plenty  of people have seen it unloaded and  started inland.

APPI.EFORD   COUNTER  CHECK  BOOK COMPANY, LTD.  Hamilton, Canada.  Offices:   Toronto,   Montreal,     Winnipeg,  Vancouver..  Frank H. Simonds says in the New  York Tribune: Whatever the subse-  c-.uent development may be it is clear  now that the. battle of Arras represents the most successful British operation during the war, and one of m  the most successful attacks' m the  history warfare.  Naturally,    it    will    be    compared,  first, with the la-st of the French offensives at  Verdun.   In that case the.  French  attacked  a  front  of    several  miles,  penetrated  the   German    lines  for a little less than three, and took  something  over  11,000 prisoners  and  more than a  hundred guns.  Judging  by this standard it will bc seen that  thc   British   in.   their  attack   east     of  Arras captured about the same number of guns and prisoners on a front  of twelve miles, as against seven, but  advanced something like    twice    the aa  distance that the French did.     .������#S^';\..-���������'-.-..'-A:  The    British,    attacking    v^^-'aioj^M^^*.'���������  limited object but to smsishMiv^lijSU^^W^--  h.veleve miles   of    the Germ'a^^fep-a^^^^'.''''-  were more successful .than ahy^lflh^fTPaaP.'::.y;f  allied    army    on thc western ������������������frd'fiP-iPa  during the  war*   At  Neuve  Chapelle '-.���������;      A  two  years  ago   they    gained    rathec t  less than a mile on a front of two or  three.

Nothing to Prevent Americans from  Taking  up  Land   Here  When Canada entered the war with  Gr.cat Britain, many Americans  thought they might be compelled to  bear arms if they crossed the border  and took up Canadian land. That,  fallacy has been pretty well dispelled  and in addition to this lhc t'nitcd  Stales itself is now heart and soul  in th'e war so that tliere is nothing of  this ,nature, to prevent Americans  who wish from taking up land.  Since JanTiary 1 of ihis year 750  carloads of settlers' effects jiave passed through Winnipeg'. The majority of theso. were from eastern Canada aud many hundreds of cars of settlers' effects have entered western  Caiuid.v at various points 011 the border.
