CRESTOH, B.G, FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1917  No. 25  eoThe Company loaded but 42 cars of  lumber at the Siding during the  month of June, and would have done  even better than that had cars been  available.  The caterpillar engine, which has  been on the lumber haul to the Sid!"*?  for some time, back,- was changed  back to fche log haul fche latter part of  the week. On one of fche last trips on  Friday a load of 220,000 feet was taken  down. Teams are back on the lumber  pull again.  Fred Waylefcfc, the. former Company  storekeeper, who has been afc Winnipeg for a few months past, resumed  his fern's!* job on Monday afternoon,  Mr. Blakely leaving the following  day. Fred is by long odds the most  satisfactory man we haye had in the  store, and he is 'getting a royal welcome back.  25 Per Cent, of  in Crop  With what is known as "the height  -.*   4.1 ������������������������������������.������..>������  Us..*,  *,  XJtx    uajBO ������urc*0*Jr X*.     ^xmj. ������*   mj  berry crop it seems  OCJ-ir.1^T  season esfjlsjafce  The first car  ��������� load -of strawberries  was shipped bn Wednesday to Calgary besides a couple of hundred  crates shipped locally.

Miss Alice Carr of Alice Siding is  with us again for the b^rry season.   ���������  The dance held in the schoolhouse  Saturday night was a success from  every poinfc*. of. view. Quite a crowd  of young folks from Canyon City and  Cresfcon motored out and all seemed fco  thoroughly enjoy themselves, agreeing  that the piano sure ��������� makes a f&ve&t addition to the music for dancing.

His place is being filled by John  Broderick.  Mrs. Gob. Sheohan was a Nelson  visitor last week, visiting with her  mother.'  Several bad oases of whooping  cough are reported hore at present.  Miss Francos Knott was a weekend visitor with friends in Notaon, returning on Monday.  Tne mill was closed down for a  couple of days last week in order to  make .some changes in the' rollers  whioh will simplify handling the slab-  wood on fco fcho slashers.  ���������  Dad Browell. has the contract of  clearing six acres 64 land* thafc Huy-  ���������j-oiih A.

' Miss Jessie Cameron, who has been  attending high school at Kaslo tho  past term is home , for the summer  vacation.  The annual school meeting on the  14th will haye to oleot" a successor tb  trustee J. M. Craigie, whose throe  year term op the board has expired.  Ho has aqted as secretary-treasurer  for thc past two years.  Fraser & Son commenced fche flea-  son's shipping of cabbage on Tuesday.  Tho oiu'Iy-Bonaon estimate of a six-ton  orop will hardly be realized, however.  All tho stiawborry growers aro now  numbered among fche shippers afc this  point and right now about. 7������ crates a  day aro being handled.  Al. H. Palmui* is awarded tho honors  of being the first to ship new potatoes  this season, having a bushel of likely  looking ones for export lasfc Friday.  They have been using fliom at tho  house for almost two weeks back.  Sam Romano, the watchman at  Canyon, had the bad luck to havo bin  Mjmeutu* wrecked on Maturday last.  Ho had loft It on the track while in to-  got hlu mall horo, and a heavy froight  train happening along an-uumlng It up  vory badly.  certain fchafc fche  a total crop  for fche Valley of 20,000 crates will  have to be cut .possibly as much as 25  per cenfc.���������this figure being fche estimate of O.' J.] Wigen of Wynndel,  who was in .town on Tuesday.  The lack of'l a good supply of  moisture, -there having been no raiu  at alt since June 24th, is a consider-  able factor; in ^accounting for the reduced estimate^ crop, and it would  also, seem -fchat fche earlier'Season  estimates were, a trifle optimistic, a  good showing' of blossom, being  accepted as a sore sign that a lot of  fruit would 'follow-' which has not  been entirely tlye case. The quite excessive dryi sjpfeatili too, has had the  effect of ripehibg some of fche   berries  ixa^Q^^ ^.thA^-'.itaim    ixt.Vamvkmti     v^^v.tnjal oTij������������j-  even. ',?,--  The' shorfcer-fchan-anfcicipafced crop  fco banffle; "and ��������� the extra effort to  secure help'has- resulted in an abundant supply- ;olf pickers. Every train of  lat^has been-bii-ingjng them in from  Cranbrook anil Fernie- which along  with the augnienfced supply of local  pickers plus ab;4u$^50 from Nelson has  resulted in; alnibstvan���������over-supply of  this elass of labor at most centres.'  * '  Up till the present the market has  held up welland satisfaefcory prices  for fche w.hole season seems assured,  although the higher ngu'res obtaining  at present: will pot bold much longer,  despite any crop, shortage. Independent shippers fiwfchervTwest h-^ve been  offering tbena^'to individual cash-in-  advance cusfam^isasilow as$2 fiO.b.,  while . fiirtb^r^ir^^^li^ng^yagerieies  ;a^S^^^|^^ .  Hgnre '���������v&c'yP slighfcly^ trg^hW, , all ; of  which will tend to break tiie market  if'fruib'ih any conside*aqle quantity is'  offered - under these * circumstances.  But at that it is .safe tb assume that  growers fchis year will average possibly 50 per cent, higher prices for  strawberries than they did in 1916.  - The first straight car wen tout from  Wynndel on Wednesday. There  were 750 crates in it, billed fco Calgary. For fche next few days Wynndel will load oufc a straight car every  second day in addition to taking care  of a heavy business in express shipments. At present all points in fche  Valley are making daily shipments  totalling at least 800 crates.  Berry Crops at Canyon  bad the intense cultivation required,  which largely accounts for the low  average of the.crop.  The Hilton'Young place should be  good for afc leasfc.. 125 crates and S.  Petrbschuk has an acre of berries just  coming in fchafc some figure will run  well over 100 bo^es of fruit. Major  Burritt, Wesling brothers. A, G=  Samuelson and .several others all haye  from 20 to 30 or 40 each, which makes  the yearV shipping'of around 1000  crates look reasonable.  The raspberry crop, the ranchers  say, never looked-more promising at  this time of year, but fche number  g*scwh;$*j thesi for shipping purposes  is not large. These include F. Knott,  who now looks assured a matter of 100  Crates, and John Wood a like amount.  On fche Con. Hall place there is a  patch hard to beat for looks and with  a reasonable lot of moisture will turn  off at least 100 crafces. A= D= Pochin  has almost an, acre of these bushes but  the lack, jof attention noticeable in the  strawberries also shows in fche raspberries and it-is hard to say whether  he will have much over 150 crates.  Huygens & VanAckeran will not be  disappointed if they get 150 crates  (they had 125 in 1916), while Major  Burritt willbe under 50,. with a few  other smaller lots. Last year, the  raspberry season opened at Canyon  City on "July.18th and closed about  August 25th, and it is expected the  opening date will be about the same  jv;���������; ^.^..i,- '���������'    ���������' ",      '    '  iiuio.'j'Cai.  So far the local children have been  more than able tn handle the picking  but from now on it would look as if  some outside help would be very  acceptable.  There'is complaint afc. Canyon Cifcy  oyer the facilities for handling the  fruifc afc' the C.P.R. depot. In the  first place the building fchafc answers  ���������fopii station^.is- on^he \v,rpng-.side of  the tr|icfei--^je^  (���������������������������airt'y*'?*������^  track and up into the station. , Also;  ���������the_. waiting: room ..fchafc . is the only  suitable place fco store the ffruit out of  the sun is too small foi* the quantity  that will- be offering for shipment.  The other station building is utilized  for a tool and oil house, efce., and is  not a fit place to use even in an  emergency. Those driving in also  urge that the C.P.R. should enlarge  fche space afc fche sfcafcion so as to Make  ifc a. little more convenient to. - turn  around in getting away froni the  depot. And finally a little government attention fco some of fche bridges  would not come amiss. The planking  in these is rather dangerous ip spots,  , The limited orchard acreage at Canyon is showing promise of a nice  average crop this year. T. R. Mawson  and Dave Rogers both having a showing of apples fully better than last  year.  Congratulations are due Miss  Marion Swanson on successfully passing the first year high school exams.,  at Cresfcon last month���������taking the  highest aaarks of all.  Mias ArrowsHsifch, teacher at the  Sirdar school, has gone to hei* home at  Creston for the vacation.  Miss Whitiier of Nelson is spending  a fevrxlays with Mrs. T. Aspey.  Mrs. Cameron and daughter, Mabel,  who haye been Mrs. Loasby's guests,  returned to Cranbrook the latter part  of the. week.  Miss M. Brake and Miss St. Eloi of  Cranbrook, are spending a few daye  with Mrs. Ross.  The first new potatoes of the year  are here from the Wright. place afc  Kuskanook, Mrs. Jonessendjng them  along on Tuesday. She is still compelled fco go about on crutches as result  of a sprained ankle almost a month  ago.:  Mr. and Mrs. Swanson and Mr.' and  Mrs. Loasby .were afc Cresfcon Thursday nighfc lasfc for. fche Red Cross fete  afc the Chas. Moore home.  There was the usual attendance at  fche English Churcn service bn ' Tuesday i night, v Presbyterhin services  will be resumed on July I7fch.  Mrs. Doolan and Miss Bidder of  Cranbrook: are spending a few days  wifchTMr. and Mrs.  Loasby at present.  Marion and Earl Swanson are trying  out their hand at. berry picking at  .Reed & Mather's, Alice   Siding.    At  time of writing the heat not* mosqui  toes had. not bees too aaneb fpr.then*.  ���������.^i..i..u'y-  For the first time in its young history the Canyon City section of the  Croston Vallev will be on the soft  fruit shipping list in pretty good  quantity this year, an estimate of the  strawberry orop being between 000  and 1200 crates and a raspberry yield  of about.half those figures.  Shipping commenced there on June  25th, and on Monday when The Rr.  vinyv man looked part of the district  over, the shipping for the day was in  the neighborhood of 40 crates, with  Con. Hall, who is taking off fche berries  on fcho Pochin placo, leading with 10  orates to his credit, and Huygens &  VanAckeran vory close up, whllo a  few other individual ranchers had one  or two crates each. Howovor, before  the week is ont berries will bo coming  in almost up to mid-season figures.  In the matter of urea planted fco  strawborrioB Huygons & VanAckeran  aro to tho foro, protty largely with  late varieties.

Barraclough  are the first of the local anglers fco try  out Summit Creek this season. They  are spending this week at that  stream;  So far this season Monday has been  the heaviest strawberry shipping day  Alice Siding has had. 56 crates were  loaded that day, the R.

Letters  With her hand on the door Hilda  paused and looked back at her brother. It was -the first time for years that  he had ever spoken to her with any  real feeling, and she suddenly recognized that his carelessness, his untidiness, his hermit-life was all pretence.  "Oh!" shc said. "So���������that's where  it is, Hartsdale? Sometimes I've wondered if you really did like to play  Diogenes."  "What else is there to do?" he asked.

Plan   Adopted  in    Saskatchewan  Stimulate Interest j  Announcement has been made  that!  for juniors to  be held at the winter fairs this 3-car  at Regina and Saskatoon is to be  open to boys and girls of., Saskatchewan and Manitoba, ranging in age  from those born January 1, 1902, to  those born November 1, 1907. This  is the first time that anj-thing like  this has been held in the west on a  large scale. The prizes amouiting  to $400 are to be diiided equally between Regina and Saskatoon, aud are  given by thc Swine Breeders' Asso1  elation of Saskatchewan. These, fairs  are being held under the auspices of  the. Saskatchewan Live Stock Board,  the one in Regina being from . November 27 to November 30, and that  at Saskatoon December. 4 to December 7 inclusive. The pigs will be judged by the usual market standards.  None will be eligible for entry which  is more than eight months old. Each  contestant will bc limited to one entrj'. Thc association paj*s transport  charges from points in Saskatchewan  and in case the exhibitor cannot accompany his animal the association  will lo<jk after its feeding, and if requested sell it at the close of thc  fair to the best possible advantage.  Thc same animal cannot be shown  both at Regina and Saskatoon, but  an exhibitor may show different ani  mals at both places.  "Say, whore's the missus?"  "She's upstairs'washing hcr face."  "Then tell her shc had better como  down   and   sec   the   laundress     who's  here facing her wash."  To Assist Co-operation Between ths  Producers of the Western  Provinces  Arrangements- are being made fof  the eleventh annual convention of the  Western Canada Irrigation Association to.be held at Maple Creek, August 1 to 3. The program will include the presentation and discussion  of the following subjects: Alfalfa  and clover crops; Sheep raising; Cooperative creameries; Water supply  from wells for irrigation and domestic supply; Construction and maintenance of irrigation reservoirs; Introduction of fish to irrigation reservoirs .  On all of the above, subjects addresses will be given by speakers ot  recognized authority, though thc  speakers have not in every case been  secured, there is no doubt but the*  foremost mcn,in the various branches  will be present. A subject of vital  importance that will occupy the attention^ of thc convention is Inter-  provincial Co-operation, which will  have a speaker from each of the  three provinces, British Columbia.  Alberta and Saskatchewan. For  some time there has been felt that a  great measure- oif co-operation between the producers of the western  provinces should be attained and a.v-  the Irrigation Association is thc only  existing association covering tbe  three provinces, it, seems to be th<;  logical vehicle to use in putting tht;  movement before the fanners ancf  fruit raisers.  be  "Now   do  3rou  think  you   can  satisfied on $10 a week?"

Minard's      Liniment  Friend.  Lumberman's  ���������agree there is real nope and help for  them. Many whoso eyes were failing-  say they have had their eyes restored  end many who once wore glasses cay  they have thrown them away. One  man says, after using- ..it: "I was almost blind. Could not see to read at  tall. Now I can read everything without niy glasses, and my eyes do not  hurt any more. At night they would  *pain dreadfully. Now they feel fine all  the time. It was Ziks a miracle to me."  A lady who used it says: "Th������ atmos-  nhere seemed hazy with or without  glasses but after using1 this -prescription for fifteen days everything- seems  clear. I can read even fine print -without glasses." Another who used it  Bays: "1 was "bothered w^th eye strain  caused by overworked, tired eyes which  Induced fierce headaches. I havo worn  glasses for several years, both for distance and work, and without them I  could not read my own name on an  pnvelope or the typewriting- on the  ���������machine before me. I can do both now,  and have discarded my Ions' distance  ���������glasses altogether, x can count the  fluttering: leaves on the trees across the  street now, which for several years  have looked like a dim green blur to  me. I cannot express my joy at what  it has done for me."  It ts believed that thousands who  "Wear glasses can now discard them in  a reasonable time, and multitudes more  will be able to strengthen their eyes  po as to be spared the trouble and expense of ever getting glasses.  Dr. Beck, an eye specialist of nearly  twenty years practice, says: "A. patient  came to me who was suffering from  Blepharitis Marginalis with all the  concomitant ' symptoms, as morning  agglutination o������ the lias, chronic con  junctivitis and ephiphora. Her eye*3  when not congested had the dull, suffused expression common to such cases.  Having run out of her medicine a  friend suggested Bon-Opto.. She used  this treatment and not only overcame-  her distressing condition, but strange  and amazing as it may seem, so  strengthened her eyesight that she was  able to dlsipensc with lwr distance  glasses and hor headache and neuralgia  left her. In this instance I should say  her eyesight was improved 100%. I  havo since verified tho efficacy of this  treatment in a, number of cases and  havo seen the eyesight improvo from  ������5 to 7i> per cent in a remarkably short  time. I call nay it works more quickly  than any other remedy J have prescribed for the  eyes."  3)r= Smith, an oculist of w!cJe experience, says: "I havo treated in private  practice a number of serious opthalmic  diseases with Bon-Opto and am able to  report ultimate recovery in both scute  and chronic cases. Mr. B. came to my  office suffering with an infected eye.  Th.e condition was so serious that an  operation for enucleation seemed imperative. Before resorting to the  operative treatment J. prescribed Bon-  Opto and in 2-t hours the secretion had  lessened, inflammatory symptoms began to subside, and in seven days tho  eye was cured and retained its normal vision. Another case of extreme  convergent strabismus (cross eyes)  escaped the surgeon's knife by the  timely use of your collyrium. ��������� The  tightened external muscles yielded to  the soothing and anodyne . effects of  Bon-Opto. 1 always instil Bon-Opto  after removal of foreign bodies and  apply it locally to all burns, ulcers  and spots on the eyeball or the lids  for its therapeutic effect. By^ cleansing tho lids of -secretions and &cLiiijs"  as- a tonic for the eyeball itself the  vision is rendered more acute, hence  the number of cases of discarded  glasses."  Dr. Conner says: "My <syes were in  bad.   condition   owimj   to   the  strain arising - from protracted lnlcro-  scopical research- Work. Bon-Opto ysed  according to directions rendered..a surprising service. I found my eyes remarkably strengthened, so much so I  have put aside my glasses without discomfort. Several of rny colleagues have  also used it and we are agreed as to  its results. In a few days, under my  observation, the eyes of an astigmatic*,  ease were so improved that glasses  have  been discarded by the .patient."  Eyo troubles of many descriptions  may be wonderfully benefited by tho  Uf-o of Bon-Opto and if you want to  strengthen your eyes, go to any drug  store and get a bottle of "Bon-Opto  tablets. Drop one Bon-Opto tablet in  a fourth- of a glass of water snd let i*  dissolve. Witii this liquid bathe thc  eyes two to four times daily, Ton  should notice your, eyes clear up perceptibly right from the start, and in-  ilammation and redness will quickly  disappeai*. If your eyes bother you  even a little it is your duty to tako  steps to save them now bztora it la  too late. Many hopelessly blind might  havo saved their sight if they had cared  for their eyes in time.  Note: A city physician to -whom the &t������va  article- was submitted, said: "Yes, Bon-Opto ia  a remarkable eyo remedy.

England now exhibits the same spirit  as that which sustained Washington  and Lafayette. It is battling heroically for human rights. In spite of  mistakes and difficulties in the administration of its immense Empire,  Great Britain stands for the essentials  of self-government, home rule and individual liberty. Its subjects are free  men, wherever they stand upon the  earth. No war-lord mortgages their  lives from the cradle to the grave, or  chives them like cattle in the prosecution of monstrous criminal ambitions. The British people are their  own war-lords. Their Empire, great  as it is in extent, is greater because  of tlic spirit of liberty that guides  and  defends  it.���������Washington   Post.

JULY   6  nature to hamper production ia the  horticultural line particularly.  Incidentally, with the considerable trade in lumber, posts, poles  and fieid products outward bound,  as well as some little business in oar  lots coming in the railway corporation might do a much worse thing  than put an agent at Canyon permanently these times.  A matter that is surely of more  than passing moment to each and  all of our local ranchers particularly is the revived effort on the part  of Creston Board of Trade to have  displayed througbont the season, in  the cabinets to be erected on the  C.P.R platform, the fruits and  vegetables for which the Valley is  noted, as they come in season,  starting early nest week.  Provided those who volunteer to  look after this work do not weary  of well doing the effort will be  productive of considerable useful  publicity with the travelling public  as well as visitors, and therefore  should have the hearty co-operation  of all interested���������which means  practically all of us.  What will be specially appreciated by the board members is do  nations of good-looking stuff to put  in the cabinets, as well as suggestions for their more efficient decoration.  When the tree fruits as well as  vegetables are available the arranging of a creditable display will not  be so serious a question as in the  soft fruit season. Consequently it  is hoped that growers will lend  what assistance they can right  from the start.  Coming Soon  At the time the government  announced the change in supervising public works The Review  pr-sdicted that so far as West  Kootenay was concerned Engineer  McPherson would find he had a  little too much territory to look  after, at leass for a starter.  Just   now   it   looks   as   if   our  observation was about correct.    As  yet even the real necessary  repairs  have not  been undertaken  on the  Valley roads,  seemingly   awaiting  instructions   from     the    engineer.  And be it said that the non-arrival  of Mr. McPherson is  not the fault  of  John Keen,  M.P.P.,   who   has  been     after    the     higher-ups    at  ! Victoria   to do  something to help  i matters out,   as   well   as   getting  after   the   ministers   who   toured  this part of the country  a couple  of weeks ago wherever they could  be reached.  However there is hope for relief  very shortly as Hon. William  Sloan's last wire to Mr. Keen is  that requirements in Kaslo riding  will be looked after without delay.  While there" has been some considerable complaining  in  this  re-  PHESERVING TIME is almost here and, as usual, you may be  needing some new containers.

Anything you have to offer in  the way of goods to display,. or  ideas to advance in the hope of  making more effective this good  work will be cheerfully receeived at  The Review, or any officer or  member of the board.  G*P*R* Attention  The C.P.R. will do well to give  early   attention   to  the  complaint  from Canyon City as to the wrong-  side of-the-track   location    of? the  station   at  that   point,  as well  as  some   other   minor   improvements  that it would  be well to make to  -give greater convenience in the getting to and away from the depot  with even a light rig, to say nothing of a heavy load.  A correspondent tells ns that this  season the waiting room that is  used as storage for fruit awaiting  shipment is just a little too small,  especially under tho new regulations for piling it so as to enable  the express company to get it  aboard the cars to the best all  round advantage, whilo the other  shed at tlmt point is so laden with  tho odor of oils and greases used  by tho company and littered up  with tools, etc. as to rondor it absolutely unuacablc for storing fruit  of any sort  Whilo this soason's possible ship-  ���������������*!*��������������������������������� r>? 1R<W> crntoH of borrios is  not a. largo chunk of business, it  must not bo forgotten that this is  only tho start.

While it is inconvenient, to do the  waiting it is probably just as well  to do eo and have what has to be  done laid out and properly supervised rather than have some inexperienced employee try out his  prentice hand at' the coumtry's  expense, especially in. these times  when a dollar is expected to do the  work sometimes accomplished by  two in the good old days.      ���������>  Doubtless, if the new order of  things is as efficacious as its  sponsors assure the ultimate good  accomplished will more than  counterbalance the inconveniences  now sustained. The installation  of any new system such as the one  under discussion in such times as  these is bound to work to the  temporary disadvantage of some  parts of the province and while we  would have preferred the other  fellow to have had the bad luck  that has come Creston's way doubtless we will get it all back with  interest in this or  direction later on.

It was  pointed out ' Lhat the drafting of  twenty millions of men into European  battlefields and the destructive process of war itself must inevitably be  followed by diminished production  aud enhanced cost of food. Today  Roumania, Poland, Belgium are  conspicuous and tragic examples of  what these things mean. The German food ration is now half the norma! requirement and under the  steady pressure of British sea power  the Hun is daibr tightening liis  belt. But though the great stress is  on the Central Powers, other nations  are feeling the strain. The smaller  neutral countries are confronted with  food shortage and high prices. Switzerland and Holland, in arms for defence, -.feed from their own scanty  supply thousands of refugees who,  homeless and destitute, have fled  thither for sanctuary. England, menaced by an ever-increasing submarine warfare, is organizing her agriculture on a new basis, enlisting for  her farms the services of women and  disabled soldiers, and putting her  beautiful and historic parks under  ihe plough. France sows her grain  and reaps her harvest, even within  the sound of the guns, by the heroic  and unceasing labor of her old men  women and children.  Such is the picture of Europe at  this hour. Facing the fateful days  wliich lie before us in this third and  sternest year of war we realize with  increasing clearness how .-vital a.  factor in the final decision the. food  supply must be. The government  of this country fully appreciates what  the farmers have done during the  past two years. In urging them to  maintain their efforts, though confronted with more difficult conditions, I do it, not because of the high  prices which will doubtless hold for  ���������nearly all food products, but because  of the important and special service  which Canadian agriculture can render the Empire at this juncture. All  who assist in this work render a  great service to the state. I do not  say the greatest, for that is done by  those who, facing death, daily serve  their country at the battle front.  Thousands of us cannot serve, but  we, who    are    mercifully    free from  thc hrojv.. ..heel ,. of the invader���������wc,  vCli'o- fcn6Sv--h'othing* of thc terrors by  sea and the privations on land which  others suffer, may well redouble our  efforts to supply what they may  sorCiy neofi,     .--  I especially appeal in this critical  year to those in our cities and towns  who hitherto have not felt the necessity . for directing their energies to  food production. Individual efforts,  in the aggregate mean much. By  applying their labor to uncultivated  land near their homes, or by-assisting the farmers, everybody havinp*  health can accomplish something.  There is need, not only for an increased supply but for a wise economy of food. If all labor is not efficient there can at least be patience  and forebearance where partial efficiency is accomplished by willingness. There is no place in the state  now for-either half-heartpd service or  ill-founded criticism. In the common task which faces the country  co-operation should be the watchword. The Dominion and provincial  departments, of agriculture are already giving, and will continue to  give, special attention to the many  problems involved. The National  Service Board and the municipalities  are: also devoting their energies fo  these Questions, and I am confident  that thc various organizations, both  of men and women, throfcglfout th*e  country will give whole-hearted and  active support to a work which at  this special time is^ a high and necessary national service.���������Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture.  ~~"  What the* Yukon Has Given  Over six hundred men have come  from "'Dawson since the war began.  Many walked long distances to enlist. In 1914 the first band of men  from the Yukon begun to train, and,  eventually, went to France, and won  distinction. The latter word is used  advisedly, for seven m&n iri the Yukon Motor Gun Detachment won thc  Military *" Medal, the captain was  awarded the Military Cross, and a  number were promoted. Now a uew  body of men is in England.in training���������the Yukon Infantry ��������� company,  C.E.F., in command of Captain Geo  Black, better known as the Com  niissioner of thc Yukon Territory,  who has as a corporal Lyman Mun-  ger Black, his son.  | Canada the World** Granary  Can Raise More    Grain.    Than    the  '-'   Whole World Combined  Excepting U.   S.  Canada's total grain crop for 1915  totalled 10,194,609,250 bushels, with a  value of $800,000,000 according to  ���������figures recently published. More conservative figures place the grain crop  value for 1915 at $600,000,000. It is  interesting to note that the grain crop  of Canada is worth more than the  whole metallic production of the  United States, as is shown elsewhere  in charts in  these-issues.  The big 1915 grain crop of Canada  was gathered in from less than 10  per cent., of the arable land of the  Dominion. This means that it would  be possible to grow in Canada a  grain crop worth $8,000,000,000. The  total tilled area in Canada in 1915  was 37,263,000 acres.  Thc wheat yield of Canada last  3'ear was 376,303,600 bushels with a  value of $312,569,400. This was an  increase of 215,023,600 bushels over  1914. The average j-ield per acre  last year was 28.98 bushels as compared with 15.67 bushels for the  Previous -"ear.  Canada produces more wheat in  proportion to her population than  any country in the world and is fast  going ahead of British India Vs the  great granary of the British Empire. Canada's exportable wheat and  flour from the 1915 harvest is estimated at a value of $200,000,000 and  the Dominion now has approximately  545 flour mills, with a'daily capacity  exceeding 111,86^ bushels.  But large as was the 1915 wheat  crop it was not in number of bushels  Canada's greatest grain crop, it being exceeded by oats which gave a  yield of 520,103,000 bushels with a  value of $70,894,000. Though the oat  crop iu number of bushels exceeded  the wheat crop by a big margin, the  cash value of the wheat crop was the  greater. Canada's oat crop in 1915  showed a gain over the 1914 oat crop  of over 20*0,000,000.  There were other grain . crops  which also helped to swell the 1915  yield and which are among the important annual productions of the  Dominion. For example, the barley  crop of Canada is bigger than the  wheat crop of Roumania and, there  are other equally creditable comparisons which can be made.  With only a tenth of tlte arabh*  land in cultivation Canada can increase its wheat and other grain  output to ten times the 1915 produce-  tion. Such a production would make  it possible for the Dominion to raise  as much grain as. all the other countries of thc world combined, with tlic  exception   of  the  United   State.-.

Officers had the right to stop any-  civilian on the street and demand  that he show his watch. If the hands  varied even to the slightest degree  from, the "German official time" a&  carried by the officer, the tinfortu-  nate civilian was heavily fined.  Officers could also enter private-  houses to look at clocks. If the iatter  did not have enough "German system  and organization" in their mechanism to register the hour as fixed by  the "Kommandateur" thc unfortunate  house owner was subjected to a fine  so severe that it amounted to confiscation of property.-,      .,  While the system of fines originally was ostensibly for the purpose of  bringing, the.-civil population up tc;  the German standard of "discipline,"  system and' organization, this pretext  has now been completely abandoned.  Forced as thc "Germans now are to  realize that they cannot hold Indefinitely the occupied districts of  France and Belgium, the fine system  is now being used for the open purpose of extorting the last penny  while they still have it in their power to enforce the extortion.  At  Brussels  alone the  fines    now ���������*  being imposed are declared to amount  to millions of francs every month.  Some  idea  of    the      nature      and  amount of these fines can be secured  from the following cases in towns re-,  ccntly retaken by the French.  At Guivry, two horses were in  some mysterious manner injured in.  a stable. For this four inhabitants  who knew nothing about the affair  were found guilty, and forced to pay  3,000 mark's. "  At Ugny-le-Gay a house was burned dow-t^ by thc Germans themselves.  Nevertheless, they charged that the  owner had set lire to the structure.  The village as a whole was held responsible and forced to pay 10,000  marks.  At the same village a. civilian waa  heavily fined for driving* a horse  which the Germans declared was not  sufficiently currycombed. As a search  of the mail's premises failed to reveal sufficient money to pay the fine,  he. was given fifteen days in prison.  Failure iu every instance to produce the amount of cash lined by the  Germans./is .invariably followed cither by deportation or long prison sentences. ,  At Chunhy three prominent citizen *  were imprisoned. An offer was then  made to release them upon the surrender of a certain amount ih municipal bonds. These thc three, mon  finally secured, whereupon the Germans decided they wanted the  amount demanded in cash instead of  bonds, refused to accept the batter,  and confined thc three men in a.  humid room without fire, light or  bedding and a diet of a pin t_ of .coffee in the morning and a piece of  bread in the cevening.  The men wore kept in this condition until friends succeeded in raising in lhc neighboring villages *!.!h*.  sum demanded.  Up to date five cemeteries have  been found���������at Bray Saint Christo-  phc, Champion, Amy, Bcuraigncs and  Crapcaumesnil where all of the more  promising looking tombs had been  dynamited and the coffins stripped  not only of th,e metal lininjy but of  any objects of silver that adorned  them. Not in a single instance were  the bodies ever placed back in: the  tombs and it ean only be supposed  that the. remains, were scattered to tho  feur winds.
