He felt and expressed  a personal grievance against the  Prime Minister for being so callous-1  ly inconsiderate as to force a bye-  election, upon him, Septimus, at lhat  precise moment.  Civil Lord came down, a.  len -with his new grandeur, io offer  himself for re-election, the agent  greeted hint wit'ri complaiu'.s aud dis-j  tip     your  George,"  having  mal forebodings.  "You  may  as  well  make  mind to a stirnish iigltt, Mr.  remarked    Crashaw,      who,  known   the     3X>uug     politician     from  childhood, invariably adopted aa easy  familiarity  with  him.     "It's  not  going  to  be   a  walk-over,   you    know"!  We'd  only   a   majority   of  sixty   odd  at the last election, and that's easily|  turned  into  a   minority  in  a  constit-"  uency  like  ours.     Again,   this  is  the  fourth   ycar   the   government's     been  in power,  and  all  the    keenness    is  worn off���������it's always worn oft by the  fourth ycar.   And the  register's  in  a  rotten   state.     If   only   it  had     been  next  year we'd have had    a    better  register.     And  our  opponents     havc  been  working  hard,  and  they've  got  a rattling good man in Colonel Ems-  worth.    He'll take some beating this  time.''"  "Don't   croak,   Crashaw,"   said   the  new   Civil   Lord.     "I've  beaten   Colonel   Emsworth  twice, and   I'll    beat  him   again.     All   that's   necessary  is  to get our forces together and have  -a. good pitch in.    We'll win all right.  Crashaw, a little man of nervous eye  and  hand,  looked  over  his   desk    at  thc young man to whom life had so  far brought nothing but success.  He  admired  George  Ellington's easy assurance, his  whole-hearted confidence  in  himself,  and his  lucky   star;   certainly he had  seemed  to be born to  good  luck, and had gone  on  experiencing good  luck  ever  since.       His  father,  John   Ellington,  thc    millionaire    manufacturer,      had      destined  young,George for a political life from  the moment of his birth; he had educated and trained him with that one  notion;  he  had kept  thc Ashminstcr  seat warm for him, and at the age of  twenty-three  George  had taken  possession of it and lickl it.  Everybody  who   knew anything  knew   that    the  younc man  was  sure of minor office  before   he  was  thirty;   he   had    been  hcduously trained to be one of those  useful   Parliamentarians   who   live  on  Hansard, aud Blue Books, aud White  Papers, and statistics and figures; he.  had served a Cabinet Minister as unpaid private  secretary;   he  had  earned  his  present appointment.   And  as  he   stood  on   Crashaw's   hearthrug��������� a  tall,  well-set-up, athletic young  Englishman,  handsome    and    gay    with  prosperity���������the  little agent  recognized  ,a.\ .-.-.o'i-a  of success, and  wagged  his  tjjtisled head  ,il  it.  "Wv!!, you were never without  fib my of assurance aud confidence,  Mr. George," he remarked, "and it's  an uncommonly good thing to have,  sir.

And as:  he laid down her card he looked at  Septimus Crashaw with a whimsical  enquiry.  "What does it mean?" he asked.  Crashaw7 shrugged his shoulders.  '"How do I know what a fine lady  means?" he answered. "Wants a bit  of excitement, a new sensation, I  should think. Isn't her husband still  away there in India? And I hear  there are no children. I should say  she's tired of rusticating at Hartsdale. They say there's nobody there  but his lordship and herself���������never  have any guests���������nothing doing*. I  hear he's hard up, as ��������� usual���������owes  piles of money iu this place anyhow.  In fact, that made mc a bit dubious,  Mr. George."-.  "Dubious? Why dubious?" asked  Ellington.  "They're not too popular in Ash-  minster, you know," said Crashaw.  "At least, his lordship isn't. The  tradesmen don't like liim, because  after getting pretty deep in their  books hc started ordering his things  from town-    All the same������������������"  Hc paused, ,and, biting thc end of  his pen, looked knowingly at thc can.  didate.  "Well?" said Ellington. "All the  same���������what?"  "She's a very handsome woman,  and a very fascinating woman, and  she can talk sixteen to the dozen,"  continued Crashaw. "And there's a  certain class of voters that can bc  got round by a pretty woman with a  smart tongue where nobody else cau  i do it.    Shc might bc useful."  "Of course we'll use her," said  Ellington. "We're not going to refuse help from anyone who offers it.  Wc "  Just then a youth opened the door  of the agent's room and put his head  inside.  "There's a lady to see you, Mr.  Crashaw," he said. "Mrs. Tressingham."  Crashaw glanced at his principal,  and catching a mere expression, turn,  e.d to the youth.  "Show Mrs. Tressingham in at  once," lie said. He. leaned across the  side of his desk and slightly# altered  the position of an easy chair lhat  stood by it. "Now you can talk to  her yourself," he observed with a significant smile. "Or���������listen to hcr."  George.

That appears to bc about the coolest piece  of man-stealing the department has  put ovcr yet. "Hitherto Alberta battalions have been broken up to supply men to fill the slackers' gaps in  units claimed by towns scattered all  the way from one ocean to the other, and drafts have been taken from  i Edmonton to enable Ottawa ������nd  Kingston to have the credit of being  represented by units overseas.  But this seems to be the first instance in which a battalion has been  stolen intact and put to the credit of  a district having no shadow of claim  to it.. It is the more notable that  thc battalion in question has been'  longer at the front than any other  Canadian unit, has suffered more, and  has come to be the most widely  known for its exploits.

Attention will bc given  the physical  ability of thc boys and  they  will  sign, with, thc consent    of  their parents,  for six months' service  on tho. farms.  A record will bc kept  of  their work  and  efficiency,    which  will bc credited lo them the same as  if. it  wen*,  in   the  regular  classes  in  the schools aud colleges.  This looks  like a  prr-lly good   scheme,  nol   only  to gel. .intelligent farm workers,    hi'i  for the real  advantage of  the  hoys.  It was tried iu a small way last year  and thc result was that thc boys who  worked  on   the  fanns   outstripped   in  their studies those who  remained in  the  schools.

One  of   the  very latest outbreaks in this regard  haa to do  with the  waste of foods  in the kitchens of the United States,  which   has   been   figured   at  two  cents   per   person   per day,  or a  matter of  $7   per year   for  every  man,   woman   and   child   in   the  great    republic.    Assuming    that  Canadians are equally  unmindful  in    this   detail     with    our    total  population of some eight  milllion  citizens   of     the     Dominion     are  squandering     about     $56,000,000  annually.

Shannon,   who was  in  charge   of    this    work    for   two  seasons   past,   all   classes   in   the  Valley   will  commend   the administration for the  move they   have  made   in   this  direction.    Backed  up by the necessary  authority the  local fire warden  and   police could  hardly   give less satisfaction than  Mr. Shannon, and are like to do a  whole lot better���������and at  a  saving  of some $125 a month   and travelling expenses.

"The tofti!,\ruit production of  the province for this year he estimates  at 4,000 cars, as against3,178 last year.  He believes that prices will he reasonably' good for all varieties except  winter apples. On account of the  increased production throughout the  continent and the establishment- of  the British embargo, Which will mean  the dumping on the prairies of apples  from Ontario and the Northwestern  States, the winter apple situation, he  _ thinks 'Will be a serious one for the  I 'BlO. growers.;.'  In a recent;'-'report on the crop outlook, sent to Dominion Fi-uit Commissioner Johnson  Mr. "Winslow says.  "I have just returned from a an extensive trip through the Ckanagan  and Lower Mainland. The season is  an extremely late one, being from ttn  days to two weeks later-than last  year, and in some respects even more  backward, th the Okanagan the weather has been rather on the dry side,  with less sun than usual, but they  have just recently had some good rains.

"Thc glory of the Canadian tight  at the Ypres salient has been too  little appreciated on our side of the  northern frontier. Rarely in history  have troops, volunteer troops, suddenly exposed to a flank attack  through no "fault-'of their own, but  by the collapse. of their neighbors,  had to bear a .more' terrific blow than  that which followed the first gas  attack. Yet in thc midst of confusion, assailed by the appaling poison  of German.making, the Canadian-.volunteers stood and died as the. British  regulars had stood and died in the  gieater battle of Ypres of 1914.  "And now the Canadians have  swept up the famous Vimy ridge,  which halted the French veterans of  Foch and proved too great an obstacle lor the genius of the greatest  offensive fighter France has yet produced in the war. After long months  of waiting the Canadians have had  their hour. They have had a chance  to avenrre their comrades, crucified  by German brutes in Flanders;, they  have had an opportunity to write  tiie name of Canada on thc war map  of Europe arid their imprint -will be  remembered���������in .Germany quite as  much" as in America.  "We shall know, later at what price  this achievement was accomplished,  , but no price will be too high and  for Canada this day of victory will  have.a lasting value. For Canada,  too, its value will be' less than for  the British Empire.        .'.-'.'.  "Nearly three-quarters of a) million  of Canadian and Australian troops  have responded to the call "of .the  British Empire, more than half -~of  them wearing the Canadian Maple  Leaf, German plotting, ' German  scheming^ the wise plans of the professors on paper and of the .

"Americans will feel a certain envy  in the thought that Canada has outdistanced us.in reaching the battle-  line, which is the frontier of our common civilization. We shall take what  comfort we may from the knowledge  that among the Canadian forces are  a considerable contingent of citizens  of the United "States, an unofficial  vanguard, we shall trust, of that  American army which is in due  course to takc its place along the  French front. They are serving in  worthy company.  "No praise of Canadian achievement can" be exclusive. From the  plain and from the mountains, from  the cities and the prairies Canada has  poured out her thousands and her  hundreds of thousands; she has sent  across the ocean an army greater  than Napoleon ever commanded on  any battlefield-, hcr .volunteer regiments have shown that same stubborn and tenacious quality whicli is  the glory of thc British army.  "Canada's sons have won for liberty not merely a few square miles  of French territory, but a victory  which makes answer to the German  idea that/the; world can be reconstructed without regard, to the spirit  of man, merely by material force.

SEVEN LAME, UP-TO-DATE MANUFACTURING PLANTS IN CANADA  28 "SERVICE" DIIANCHES AND WAREHOUSES THROUGHOUT CANADA  40  Addresses   Civil Engineers  Analysis of! the Railway Situation by  Mr. w; F.  Tye, C.E.  . In a paper presented to the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers Mr.  W.F. Tye, formerly Chief Engineer  oi; the Canadian Pacific, gives a'masterly analysis :of the railway situation  iri this country. From his years of1  experience thinking and solving rail-  Way problems as one of .the outstanding railway engineers in .Canada, Mr. Tye has had not only the  attitude of thc engineer but that of  the economist as well.  Amongst Mr. Tye's summarized  conclusions are:  The National Transcontinental,  the Grand Trunk Pacific and thc  Canadian Northern Railways are unable to earn their operating expenses  and their fixed charges. Canada has  built, and is operating, the first of  these ro'ads, and Canada and the  various provinces have guaranteed  the principal and interest of most of  the bonds of the other two. As the  roads are unable to earn their fixed  charges, they must, of necessity, bc  paid by the country.  The failure of these roads is due  to# the duplication of lines by all the  railways, encouraged and bontised by  the government; to the excessive  cost of the Grand Trunk Pacific and  National Transcontinental Railways*  to the failure of the Grand Trunk  Pacific to provide itself with an adequate S3rstem of feeders iu the West,  and to the construction, by the Canadian Northern, of the long and unproductive stretches of road across  British Columbia and Northern Ontario, without feeders, terminals, etc.  If these railways arc to be maintained in two separate systems, it  will cost at least $400,000,000. It  will be necessary to build five or six  thousand miles of feeders in the  West, and two or three thousand  miles of feeders in the East, and terminals costing many millions..  A consolidation of the Grand  Trunk, the-"' Grand Trunk Pacific,  Transcontinental and Canadian  Northern Railways would give a  -well-balanced system. Such a combination would uot require more than  $100,000,000 to put it in proper physical condition.  Including operating expenses and.  fixed charges, it _costs the Canadian  Pacific about $70 to do $100 worth of  business, and it costs the Intercolonial and the other Canadian government roads from $200 to $220 to do  $100 worth of business.    .  Canada should follow the wise example set by Sir John Macdonald  when dealing with thc Canadian Pa-  cine: in 1879-80, and form a new private corporation with sufficient power and the necessary^ safeguards, to  take over and consolidate thc Grand  Trunk, Grand Trunk Pacific, Transcontinental and Canadian Northern  Railways, and develop another Canadian Pacific.  Such a combination would start  with gross earnings of at least $100,-  000,000 per annum, with a "probable  average increase of 8 per cent, per  annum, and probable net earnings of  from $25,000,000 to $30,000,000 per  annum, a������d a net revenue from othei-  sources of about $2,800,000. Its fixed  charges at consolidation would bc  about $35,000,000 and it would bc under thc necessity of spending, jn the  first five to seven years, at least  $100,000,000 to provide rolling stock,  and to put its properties in good physical condition.  In order to control its policy and  to share in its certain prosperity,  Canada should have an interest in  the new company. Thc Dominion  government should furnish 41) per  cent, of thc money required, own 40  \ per cent, of the stock, and appoint  '40 per cent, of the directorate, but  takc no part in thc actual management. This would give aii thc advantage of government control with-  Doctor Tells How to S^gk)gthen  Eyesight 50 per cent.

Thirty-two months have, passed  since the first German soldier crossed the Belgian frontier and* by his  crossing opened a. breach in.the wall  of civilization through which wave  after wave of barbarism has entered.  We a,re nearly three years away  from the moment when Germany  elected to put into play all that vast  machinery she had prepared over a  generation, to employ all those colossal plans she had made to achieve  that world power of which Bernhardi  wrote and German leaders dreamed.  And now, after these months, how  much of all thc German ambitions  lias been realized? Belgium was  struck down that- Germany might  get at once at the throat of France,  and today German troops iu France  are retreating, while France remains  unconquered and a million Germans  lie buried between the Meuse * and  the Channel.'  To overawe Belgium German  troops acting under orders performed their sordid task of ruthlessness  in Louvain; they slaughtered children, outraged women, murdered old  men; they turned the city into a  shambles���������and after - thirty-two  months the soul of Belgium remains  unconquered arid the sound of the  Allied guns draws nearer 10 ^ the  ruins of Louvain.  To paralyze Russia, German spies  and German agents corrupted Slav  generals, sowed the 'Russian court  with treason and enlisted Russian  autocracy and royalty, and today  Russia is in fact a republic und the  voice of the Russian people has repudiated thc treason of Russian  leadership.  . To terrorize Britain Zeppelins were  sent ovcr Loudon and many"innocent  non-combatants were killed. '������������������ Edith  Cavell was executed, Captain Fryatt  was murdered, submarine, fleets were  launched to sweep Britain from the  seas, and today 2,000,000 British  troops are advancing in France, and  wherever a German agent * has ^ endeavored to sow treason in a British  colony Britain lias reaped a <*rop of  loyalty and devotion. Australia, Canada, South Africa are represented in  the British battle line. The stones of  thc British empire havc been cemented by the blood of Britons aud  Colonials alike,, shed in the. same  cause.  Great Britain, Italy, Roumania, lhc  United Slates, each of thc great neutrals, has in turn laid aside, that neutrality which had become impossible;  there has been a plebiscite of peoples,  aud the verdict of mankind is written; men of many nations havc  chosen to die, men of many races  have, risked the supreme hazard,  rather than permit lhe. German gospel, expressed utterly in the. Belgian  invasion, to prevail in the world.  There'is no device known U> materialistic civilization, t to scientific  and organized civilization, lhat tlic  German has not employed. He has  used thc hospitality of other nations  to plant treason within their borders; hc has endeavored to turn one  m:ui ���������ur-.uust another in each neutral nation; by treason, hy terrorism,  by    intrigue,    by    violence    he   has  hosts at the Marne and the Yser an*5  is now turning backward toward Germany itself the slowly weakening  mass of his armies.  What a monstrous s thing this German attack has- been, and what a  colossal failure! The- world has not  been conquered, no part of it; no  people among all that have been attacked has; ' abandoned" the battle,  however, heavy "the first blow* Europe  has been sown with German dead,  but the harvest has only been enemies .- The German calculation included all but the spirit of, man, but  the spirit oilman has proven the- decisive factor. Mankind ' has willed  that the German menace, should not  prevail, and.we are seeing at last the  ebb tide of barbarism on the French  fields.���������New York Tribune.  What Happened in Kansas  There arc, of course, diffierences in  soil, but, "when, people talk about  making back-lot gardens this spring  they might as well be reminded ol  something that happened to a Kan*  sas back-lot gardener last season.  He planted pumpkins. They grew-,  and they continued to grow until  they ran over the neighboring bacli  lots and climbed the porches ol  neighboring houses and trespassed  even upon the alley aud the street,  Everybody within the block made  free with that man's pumpkins, and,  yet a petition was sent'to the town,  council asking that he- be forbiddcii  to grow things this ycar. He ha$  compromised thc matter by erecting  a close wire fence around his prenv<  iscs, and thc neighbors are now  afraid his pumpkins will grow upwards until they shut out the -afternoon sun.���������From the Christian  Science Monitor.

The 1916-17 winter snowfall in the  CrestSm Valley is 40 inches lighter  than the previous year. Last season  we were blessed with 67 inches of the  white goods, while a year previous 107  inches was recorded. . If the decrease  was in. the same proportion in the  Rockies the danger of high water this  year is not serious.  The bank staff, postmaster and. the  school scholai*s were the only ones to  observe the King's Birthday on Monday. Tuesday was the big day across  the line, being the day appointed for  all citizens to register under ������ the  niilit-ary selective draft regulations  recently promulgated, 10,000,000 men  enrolling for overseas fighting. '"  The memorial tablet erected by the  Forestry Draft opposite the bank,  and which was bowled over by a gale  a few days after the troop left, was  re-erected this week, and the names of  the local soldiers who have fallen in  battle since it was first put up have  been inscribed thereon.

Moore0 the newly appointed road superintendent for this riding,  is here from Kaslo this week looking  over the needs of the Valley in the  way of road repairs and improvements.  With the exception of peaches,  which are showing absolutely no blossoms at all In some orchards, the outlook for a banner tree fruit crop has  seldom been better at this time of  year in the Valley.  Word conies from Bonners Ferry  that Chief Alexander of the Creston  Indiau reserve was successfully  operated upon for stone in the bladder  the latter part of the week, and that  he is making a successful recovery.  Walter B. Muir and Micheal J. McPeak have formed a partnership for  mining and prospecting purposes.

The water on the flats has about  held its own for the past week, and  with the prevailing cool weather some  of the wise ones are predicting that  we have seen the worst of the 1017  flood. As yet the Kootenay River  has not got over its banks, although  early in the week it was reported 21  feet above normal at Bonners Ferry.

As we have arranged to con tine shipments of fruit to certain  agencies on certain markets it can be seen at once that the  arrival of fruit on these markets not shipped by us but  bearing every indication on the boxes that the fruit has  come from the Union is bound to cause friction between the  selling agents and ourselves.
