 r  Vol. IX  qitESTON, B. G.v tfl^ii?, AUGUST 24, \L917  j of the week. The latter has not yet  decided on his plans after October  ���������lat, whefi. prohibition becomes effective  in* BiO./ '������������������ ;'"':  This is the in-between season period  for local fruit export. RMpberries  are still going out at about ten crates  a day, along with possibly 50 crates a  day of tomatoes and a dozen or more  boxes of early apples, but this about  makes up the entire list of shippers?  Including Wednesday's business the  figures at Creston Fruit Growers'  Union show that that organization  had shipped only 200 crates of raspberries less than.'last year, so assuming  that indepnnd&nt shipping was slightly heavier than a year ago, and more  of this class of fruit going out at  . Wynndel, it is ^ fair to assume that  the 1917 shipping has fully equalled  the 1916 mark of 5.280 crates of  raspberries.  Tomato shipping is under 50 crates  a day, but the -middle of the week  showed a considerable speeding up of  receipts, and the market price'at least  2������ per cent, higher than a year ago.  At present there Is every indication  that the crop will be fully an average  one, considering the acreage planted.  Point rot may be. a bit worse than  other years, but this is equalized  largely owing to the absence of other  defects cutting down the quantity of  cull tomatoes to about the average of  other years. "Growers who will. gro*w  plants from their own seed are being  urged to select thatseed from tomatoes  grown from yines that are not showing point rotted fruit. "In this way,  it is thought, it may be possible to  develop a plant that will not be  susceptible to this trouble in future.  Plums have not commenced to  move yet, though the ,Pe*wh ~variefi.y  appear to be ready> for picking on  -[some of the trees  hereabouts.   Tbe  Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Rose of Oreston  spent a couple of days here the latter  part of the week. Mr. Rose had just  reburnedfrom the Liberal convention  at Revelstoke and found a few days  rest here decidedly invigorating  thereafter.  Miss Ruth Swanson, who visited  with the Misses Hobden atr- Oreston  last week, returned on Tuesday evening, bringing Misses Hazel and Agnes  Hobden with her  for a short holiday.  Sirdar is enjoying the company..- of  niimerbus visitors of late, among the  number being* Mr. and Mis. Williams  of Medicine Hat. Mr. W< is. one of  his majesty's most popular mail clerks  on the Hat Landing run. :  I  Early aooles are a short  V" JL -X  crop and ranchers should  keep closely ih touch with  the Union iir order that  their shipments may not  miss cars,       '  A car of Duchess Apples  and Transcendant Crabs  will move in about one  week's time.  Drainage M'  Commitles Straek  'nnsi&B  j O&rl Wigen left on Sunday for  Caithness, near Jaffray, where he has  a job on the erection of a new mill at  that point. '  Miss Irene Huscroft is spending a  few days with Mrs. Long at Erickson.  ' ���������������������������:*������.'G. Hunt, the horticulturist,  Grand Forks, was here on Saturday  lookingoyerthe garden plots entered  in . the garden competition. This is  the second callf: and the prizes will be  awarded on hiSnext visit-,  There is still a crate or two a day of  raspberries going out, but the end will  come any.day now. Up till.Wednes-  day 460 crates of them have beeh shipped from fere.  -.' ;   N      - ,  The box factory has been running  plum crop:������������������-Is'^SMjj^  heavier than a year ago all over R.CP,.  so big prices for this fruit- will be out  of the question for������1917, though there  will assuredly be a^ market for all of  them at remunerative prices. Peaches  should be coming in fairly strong by  the end of the month. Reports on  these are that the yield will be slightly larger than in11916.  It is expected the first straight car  of Greston apples will be shipped* on  Saturday.1 These will be Yellow  Transparents, and will be largely the  jumble pack, due to the fact that the  fruit has not the size to warrant  wrapping. The fruit, however, is  excepsionally clean, very little scab  showing, and right novv the indications are for prices much the same as  a year ago. The Unlou got in the  lirst instalment af its apple wrapping  paper on Tuesday. There, is a ton of  it, which it is figured will take care of  at least 6000 boxes of wrapped fruit at  least.  Cabbage is another. Valley commodity that is in good demand and  the quantity available practically  negligible. Customers report that  the cabbiige from Greston is the best  they have had this season, consequently there is a healthy demand for  it now at prices as high as $50 a ton.  boxes particularly.  IS. Craigie was another.. Creston  visitor on Tuesday, lending a hand at  a .session of the police court that  afternoon.  After being confined to the house  since the early part of the month John  Johnson was able to make a trip to  Creston on Tuesday, though not feeling as well as usual by any means.  The extension of the sch������. ol holidays  for one week was heard with great  satisfaction by the juvenile population at Wynndel. When the term  starts Jas. King, who was at Alice  Sfding last year, will be in charge at  Wynndel.  The casualty list issued on Tuesday  shows the name of J, C. Butterfield  among those wounded. He is a son of  Postmaster Butterfield, and enlisted  with a northern interior battalion  that was in training at Vernon two  years ago. on which occasion he spent  a short leave with his parent^ here.  No details are available as to the  seriousness or otherwise of his injury.  Sirdar  Mrs. Gallant and Mrs. Aspey wero  Crouton callers on Friday.  Rev. J. S.

Preliminary arrangements for the  big Reclamation conference in Ci'eston on Sept. 29th, so far as it is possible to complete'them, were worked  out at the special meeting of the board  of trade on Tuesday night, which was  well attended.  Messrs. Henderson, Rodgers, Stark  and Embree, the gentlemen entrusted  with the work of selecting the committee to handle arrangements for  the conference, made their'-'report  which was accepted by the board.  They recommend the following  eommittees:  Reception���������B. C. Gibbs, chairman;  S. A. Speers, W.^ B. Embree, R. S.  Bevan, W. V. Jackson.  Decoration���������-R. S. Bevan, chairman;  R. M.

The duties of each of .these _-were  outlined in considerable detail, and to  ensure that there was no falling down  or overlappirisr it was decided to have  an executive committee composed of  the chairmen of '-committees, thus coordinating the work of each.  At present .the. plan is, if possible,  to have the engineers from both  countries gather at Creston some few  days prior to the conference and go  into the matter together, even to the  extent of looking the to-be-reclaimed  area over. If this can be arranged it  will then be in order to haye their  preliminary findings submitted to a  meeting of the B.C. cabinet ministers,  who Will be peescnt it is hoped, as  well as the U.S. authorities the day  before the conference* so that any  statements they haye to make will be  based on the information thus supplied them. Also,, this getting the  enginecas together here will do away  with tho meeting of this sort which  had been planned for Victoria in  October, it being felt that the Washington authorities would hardly care  to send their men here in September  aud to Victoria again tho following  month.  The international committee are at  work on tho drainage authorities-at  Washington to ensure the attendance  of the engineers and tho local board of  trade is in touch with Victoria for the  attendance of the B.C. engineers as  woll as a couple of the cabinet and  possibly Premier Brewster.  Greston is expected -this weektotuke  charge of building operations of the  Slater mill, which 'It is hopecl to have  running early in October,  . D. J. Spiers, Ben Long. Mac Boyd  and Capt. Forrester were with--us on  Saturday for an afternoon's fishing at  Meadow Creek and all report getting  close to the legal, allowance for one  day's angling.  J. McRobb and family of Canyon  were motor visitors here on Sunday  for a day's outing jvith the speckled  beauties, and went home with a very  satisfactory cateh.  Mr. and Mrs. W. V. Jackson and'  Mrs. Whitehead of Mountain View  ranch, Creston, comprised another  picnic-fishing party who went through  Kitchener on Thursday last to spend  the day/  Th^Spiers-Boyd-Long fishing party  that'was here on Saturday report  seeing a bit of a freak deer on the iiv-  trip, near the Paulson mill. It was a  cross between an ordinary and mule  deer, with ears as long as au ordinary  mule and a tail of the same pattern,  and a gait resembling a" young,  cow. It was quite tame and ran.a-  head of the auto for a hundred yards  or more before turning aside to stand  and watch the car go by..  s  'PPMM0^i  &&&%$&$&  -AArAAp:MmJ  '���������'���������yy-Av'-cjvsSSKs  '���������A-rBAAWg?������  ������������������' rAAApmimm  - ������������������ - -Ar<Ar&&m  -: -yy-:y������yS'S|������L  -���������������������������':-..��������� -.:.--5i,-������.-^4������  .-' ,.;y'yyj*sK*stfil  .- r'r^AA0%2m  ' -A rA0A������!&kj,  .- ��������� -AA?',%'A'.iS,r-3v?i\  ':��������� ry-r-AAr&Z<iiNi  ���������������������������a-?--a*&-j.?i?j������<\  "���������A A/A:..-it^Aff:i  '������������������-���������A'y:A.f^i!/.  ��������� '   '��������� AAy^A^V  , .;���������:��������� '��������� '��������� v^MfeijPil  V-   ' -y"yVS?Mfeil  :���������''-'������������������?������?, A'i������S?M  :'��������� r*���������?^'c:r&-iT  -���������'.':,: A'^r0^i'*  --2I-J  Mrs. Burgess of Cranbrook arrived  on Friday last to spend a sh ori holiday withi Mrs. JEl.

'  Uridine  foruinun   Jim   JoIiiinMmi   of  Growers claim that" an invasion of  wasps the latter part of the week deprived them of many crates of raspberries, the pests being so thick and  vicious as to make picking impossible.  Indications are that the Erickson  school will have a banner attendance  this term. The pupils from here who  took the Entrance work at Creston  last year will likely be enrolled at the  Erickson seat of learning again.  J. W. Eastham, the plant specialist  of the B.C. University, Vancouver,  was a visitor hero on Saturday, looking over the tomato crop in particular  He states that the point rot that the  plants are troubled with is due solely  to the prolonged dry woathei.  The hurricane that prevailed for an  hour or moro early Tuesday evening  appears to have dono considerable  damage in spots through this section,  blowing down the early varieties of  apples in wholesale fashion on some  ranches. W. V. Jackson suffered the  worst of tho lot. haying almost 100  boxes of thorn blown to the ground.  Much of this fruit, however, is being  shinned for cooking apples. On tho  R. J.

lo give a Canadian officer a life. He

a captain. He was of the right mettle and full of courage and determination lo drive the Boche back to>his

had shown during the war. 'Sir,' he
said, much to my surprise, 4whywili
you always treat us as children? We

The children and thc teachers who  ivent with them are all enthusiastic  pver their trip and say they spent a  tnost enjoyablcvas well as instructive  .day Mr. Newton of the Extension,  Pepartment welcomed the 36 child-1  i-cn and 4 teachers and kindly provided a guide-for-the party to show  JJiem oyer thc different buildings; the  domestic science, sewing rooms, tex-  iles^ and house keeping, etc.  ������������������ The party then went to the poultry  /jQiises. where Prof. Herncr took  great interest in tthe children, explaining and making each child test  .some eggs, visiting the incubator  jjroorn, where chickens were batching.  Showing them brooders, where 300  Chickens were being fed. and explain-  - Ing how to feed with butter milk etc.  (Then came fattening poultry in  crates and trap nests for the laying  Jtiens.-and finally to'the room where  they saw the dry picking of broilers.  From tbe poultry houses the party  proceeded to the* pig pens, where tbe  {children were much interested in the  Voting pigs. Then into the cattle  barns where they saw some beautiful calves. Sheep pens were - next  Tisited and great interest taken in the  little  new born   lambs.  Thei girls, as well as the boys,  (evinced the greatest interest in the  "five slock and were eager to see everything.  The college kindly arranged for  -them to cat their lunches in the dining hall and provided them with hot  tea, which was much ' appreciated.  .After lunch they visited the conservatories where the beautiful display  ������i" flowers delighted them. Then  came the museum, where thc stuffed  '"birds_ and animals-proved-a great attraction. The teachers could hardly  v drag the children away, but time was  limited and a very happy and satis  ���������god crowd took the cars back to  .Winnipeg.  These picnics might well be extended lo all the rural schodls within  ������asy distance of the college. Most  ������f.thc children were the oleler pupils  who are members of the boys and  git4s clubs. These clubs are being  provideel with fine bred eggs, young  pigs, seeel grains and potatoes, etc.,  by the college and it was thought  that those country children might  with profit see how to look after and  care for-the produce they raise, in the  best manner, as shown at the college.  Many of these children never havc  an opportunity of seeing anything  beyond their own home farm, but  after such a visit these children will  have an ambition to������irciurn to the  college later on and takc advantage  of the fine course of instruction provided  there.  Even an occasional visit to a big  agricultural fair is not to be compared with a day spent at the. college.  At the usual fairs their attention is  more apt to be absorbed by useless  and unprofitable sight**, such as a  "Hairy Man from Borneo," or a  "Living Skeleton," or such like, then  the beauty and grace of the fine live  slock on view.  These picnics could go on during  all the school session and provide  endless themes for essays and discussions and il is to be hoped thai  many more of the rural schools will  accept the invitation the college extends lo them.  The. following letter* from one of  the teachers adequately expresses  bow the child roil enjoyed the trip  and visit  lo the college.  .Ilcndiugly,   Man.  the ride was rather long and two of  Miss Taylor's girls took ill so. she  took them in a jitney from Eatons.  We left Hcadingly ..at 9 o'clock and  reached.the college at 11 a.m. Each  child took a lunch the same as for a  regular school day. Mr. Newton -was  yery nice and called a young lady  from his office who-showed us about  his -building, the domestic science  room, sewing room, textiles and  house keeping room. ' Then Mr. Heritor, .I think that was his name, took  us over to the chicken houses. He  took an active interest in the children  asking questions, etc. A pleasant  time was spent in the egg testing  room, each child tested some eggs.  Then we visited the incubator room,  one incubator was hatching. Children  were all interested in this. Then we  went into a room where two men  were dry picking broilers,- then into  the room where tbe fattening crates  were* then to tbe pens where the  hens and laying hens were. One girl  saw a hen go into a nest and the nest  shutting, There were many young  chicks. The children were delighted  with the large brooders where 300  chicks were kept. Mr. Herncr told  them how they fed the chickens buttermilk, etc. In one pen .were some  guinea pigs and everyone had a good  look. There was a pen of young  ducks.    Saw some turkeys and geese.  After the visit to the fowls we  paid a visit to the'dining room wliich  thc college placed very kindly, at our  disposal. Tbey supplied us with hot  tea which was much appreciated by-  all as the day was rather chilly. After  lunch we were taken around the stock  by a Mr. Woods. Everyone took a  keen interest in the pigs. One old  sow with little ones was very tame  and gentle, thc children walked in  the pen right beside her. We saw  the pig cots and winter quarters then  went to the cattle barn where thcie  was some beautiful calves. We only  saw two ewes and three lambs as all  the sheep were "out but those. Saw  a few horses. Thc children were delighted with the conservatory' and  museum. Thc .stuffed bints and ani-  niaiS are. so instructive to young  miitds. Wc left on thc 3 o'clock car  ana I took my girls to the industrial  bureau for another hour to finish out  the day. I think most, of the children  went home on the four o'clock Hcadingly car but we came on the five,  reaching Headiugly at six very tired  bitt satisfied that the trip was not  only -enjoyable but most instructive.  I hope you can read this as it is rather a poor scrawl. I was very sorry  you were not able to be with us on  our trip. Mrs. Britton takes a wonderful interest in the boys and girls  outdoor life. If you want our girls  to appreciate nature we must love it  ourselves."  Periodical visits or excursions to  tHe college at least once or twice a  year would be very beneficial to the  children from the rural schools and it  is hoped that the school boards will  arrange excursions in conjunction  with  the Agricultural  College  Board.  2 and S lb.

Up* to nine years of age _a child's  religion is determined by its parents:  if ther is a disagreement the child  takes the mother's religion.

Imports of Hour increased  alarmingly, and all because the British public were enamored of white  bread.  Rumors of wonderful machinery  producing white flour in Budapest  caused English millers to visit Austria-Hungary. The result of this  deputation was that in 1878 the first  complete plant to reduce: wheat to  white flour was installed in   England.  So started the home manufacture  of white b'read.

Subscription: $2 a year in advance;  $2.50 to United States points.  O. P. Kates, Owner and Editor.  ORESTON, B.C.. FRIDAY, AUG. 24  The prize list of the Cranbrook  J 917 fall fair is to hand, and a  casual look . through it convinces  that there is at least a couple  hundred dollars of the prize money  that ought to come to Creston.  We say this because we believe  strongly in bringing in s all the  "outside capital" possible, and the  more so on this occasion because it  can be had at the minimum of  effort and expense, thanks to s* plan  of co-operation the board of trade  will offer, whereby they will look  after the exhibits of individual  ranchers who have good stuff to  show bxit who are not in a position  to spend the necessary two or three  days away from home looking after  *"he fair themselves.  Or, if the rancher cares to go  along with bis fruit, etc., the board  ean still be of assistance in having  liis stuff shipped with the consignment the board will exhibit, possibly effecting some saving on  freight charges, and also at Cranbrook in getting tbe goods down to  the fair grounds and getting them  arranged to best advantage.  The board is endeavoring to see  to it that   the  display of  Creston  products is worthy   of  the  Valley, I raeaningless     bufc    .^-sounding  *������H    Wft���������t,  th* "assistance  of the} words used in the solution hardly  look   that   way.     But why   beat'  colors the province of Quebec, to  make gcod her delinquency and  also supply her pro rata share in  the new .effort, would have to  furnish about 35,000 men. This is  the only amicable arrangement if  voluntary effort is to continue,  and Well the leaders must know  such a sohemejwill fail in view of  the situation in that .province���������a  situation Sir Wilfrid does not hold  out any hope of remedying even if  returned to power.  Another forceful argument  against the voluntary effort is that  it has already taken too many men  that should have been left in  Canada, and a continuance of suoh  a state of affairs is neither advisable or desirable.  The statement that tho resolution  "can only be interpreted to mean  eventual oonscription" is too palpable a fraud to need discussing.  Mr. Turriff proposed to give the  resolution that meaning in very  plain and forcible language and  the convention voted down his  amendment with considerable  gusto, seemingly. If the resolution really means compulsory  service why not say so in exact  words.  In "covering up" on the resolution relating to Sir Wilfrid the  article shows a little more of the  same sort of insincerity when it  points out that "it was not an en-  dorsation of Sir Wilfrid's war  policy.'" In the cold light of facts  probably this latter statement is  correct,   though   the concoction of   ;ly     l  lenume  rey nname  are  ������������*JW,  w (������UbO  There are almost 700 pieces in the lot, which includes every article  of grey ware manufacture, from a maker of sterling repute.

Purity and durability guaranteed  Creston, Aug. 23.  S. A. SPEERS  '*  rancher either by getting his best  fruit and vegetables for the board's  display, though preferably by having the rancher go after the prizes  himself. The more kpen the competition and the larger the exhibit,  so much the better for Creston.  The prizes offered are extremely  generous, and with co-operative  effort, either with the board of  trade or the ranchers getting together in groups, the effort can be  made a money maker as well as a  really fine medium of publicity.  The fair directors are going to some  pains and extra expense to secure  ���������i showing from  here,   and  on the  counts enuiuerateu auove.  as   well  as others, Creston should, and will,  we feel sure, reciprecate handsomely.  The Explanation  Under the "Letters to the Editor"  head in this issue will be found a  statement of case for the Laurier  Liberals as made out at the recent  convention at Winnipeg, which ie  worthy of attention���������alike for  what it says as well as the issues it  tries to sidestep.  With the charges in the fore  part of the letter that utterances  of so-called Liberals had stirred up  sympathy for Sir Wilfrid, tliat  the presence of Robt. Rogers in  the present administration and the  lack of strong leadership in Premier Borden constituted just cause  l'or refusing to consider union  government proposals no confirmation or denial is really essential.  For the sake of argument all may  safely be admitted.  The vital and all important  feature of the convention had to  do with tlio businesslike conduct of  ihe war, aud on this point tho  article rather detracts from than  addfi to the .strength of the resolutions passed in this rogard,  particularly the mention that  "Many Lib'TiilM. fee! thnt rv v.*hol< -  hearted effort at voluntary recruiting would get the rcoruitm."  One excellent reason for thinking  voluntary enliHtuieiits in the required fpnuitity is foredoomed to  fuilim* '/��������� tlmt if ouch province in  asked to furnish tho men r������ouir������rl  on a basis of population and on  tin-    int-ii   already   hroiif/ht   to   tl)(������  about the bush. A crisis such as  this is no time to damn a leader  with faint praise���������and on the all-  important issue  of* the campaign.  What Liberals have against  these two resolutions is that they  are the two-faced sort; the kind  that some party leaders hope to  interpret differently .according to  the ' constituency;-' they* are - "-campaigning in. Andf as the Winnipeg  Free Press (Liberal) says. "The  feeling among the Liberal electors  of western Canada to day is sixty  per cent, against these resolutions.  It will be ninety per cent, within a  month."  Liberalism is at the parting of  the ways. A union government  may save the day, but any attempt  to sweep into office on the facing-  both-ways policy laid down at  Winnipeg will prove disastrous,  win or lose. Honesty is the best  policy���������place hunters and we-want-  office Liberals to the contrary  notwithstanding.  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR  Laurier ~ Llheral SStte  Editor, Review:.  Sir,���������In yiew of your ciditorial in  last week's issue under the heading  "Needs Explaining," the following  article from the Lethbridge Herald,  whose owner is W. A. Buchanon,  M.P. for tbo Medicine Hat riding-���������  himself a Liberal vvho spoke nnd yoted  in favor of compulsory noivioe, will,  doubtless, bo road with some interest.  Mr. Buchanan w fit fa:  ������������������Interpretation of tho attitude of  tho Liberal convention at Winnipeg  on conscription and Laurier is not  based on air. It is true that tho pre*  uunce of lion. Robort Rogera in the  govern men t, the tour through tho  west of Sir Clifford Sifton, tho boat  hated Liboml in tho country, do-  nounclng Laurier, and the attacks upon tho Liberal leader by Dr. Michael  Clark do not assist in turning tho tide  to a. united government under Sit*  !"fob'*Tl, Pordc-n. Rather ('jo-jO hi  oidonts attracted support. and  sympathy for .Sir Wilfrid Laurier  who, whilo IiIh war policy is not  generally endowed by LIIhiwIh, is still  atrong in the affection of Liberals nil  over thu country. Attat-ltH upon him  by .Sir Clifford Hifloii, the conwpirator  against reciprocity in 1011, did not  \vi*i.k������-o nir will rid. Hat her tboy  MtretiKthened hiin. Unbin govern*  men! failed lo get.   Mippoil  b.-eauHejl/  was advocated By Sir Clifford  Sifton  of whom the rank and file of Liberalism are suspicious.   Tbe government  led  by Sir Robert Borden, who was  too weak to get rid of a man  of the  Bob  Rogers   type,    could    not  gain  support from Liberals,  who  wanted  strong leadership.    Yet the   convention went on record in favor of a nonpartisan administration   in  the   res?  olution     condemning    the    partisan  administration  of.the Borden government.    As  to -.the   war,   there is   no  question that the resolution passed by  the   convention means   conscription.  ������������������All means to Vwin" an expression in  this resolution, "can only be interpreted   to   mean    eventual   conscription.  Many   Liberals, feel   that   a  wholehearted effort at voluntary recruiting  under     proper    direction   and    fair  methods would get the recruits,  but  ifit.failed.it is clear the   Winnipeg  convention was prepared to   take any  other  step, meaning  of  course  conscription, to get. the men and keep the  forces of the Canadians up to strength.  "Now  we come to   the   resolution  relating to Sir Wilfrid Laurier.    It  was not  an endorsation of Sir Wilfrid's war policy.   There  was not a  mention of a referendum in the win-  the-war resolution or in the resolution  concerning Sir  Wilfrid.   The  referendum was repudiated and ultimate  conscription   without a   referendum  was favored by the convention.   It is  true   that the convention expressed  appreciation of  Sir  Wilfrid's statesmanship and his services to Canada,  and it also expressed the hope that  he   would  accept  and    support   the  platform outlined at the convention.  If he should do so ho must repudiate  tho referendum therefore, and accept  conscription   if voluntary recruiting  does   not  got    the   mon   through   a  thorough test under his  leadership.  Briefly, tho  Liberal conyention is for  conscription   if voluntary recruiting  under another test falls,   it is against  a referendum  and consequently   opposed to Sir Wilfrid's policy, and it ie  for a non-partisan war administration  led by a strong man and froo from all  barnacles.   It is very easy for critics  to argue that the" con yon tion should  not haye  mentioned Laurier, but a  gathering of Liberal followers of Sir  Wilfrid on all othor  questions is not  going to throw tho old chieftain ovor-  board without at least expressing appreciation of his past  services   and a  hope that ho would support tho west-  orn platform.   That is all tho convention did and it is not to bo criticized  for doing it."  Thanking yon for space, Mr. Editor.  Ot.-o-TTmk LimwAT..  S HI PUS YOUR CREAM  amm  Sweet Cream Butterfat 45c per lb.

Fur bearing animals, with the exception of foxes, may be taken from  Ney. 1st to April 30th. Foxes may not  be tak6n after March 15th. 5, '  Geese (except Brant), ducks, sandpiper, snipe, ploVer, curlew, sandhill  cranes, rails and coots have an open'  season from Sept. 15 to January 31,  while the Brant geese season runs  from December 1 to March 10^ It is  set out that no ono .may take more  than 260 of these birds in one season.

Big Land Sale  Ninety Per Gent. Passed Into Hands  of Farmers  When  fanners  buy  more*   land  it  is  an  infallible,   sign ol"  their  prosperity,  'lhat   Uic   Western   Canadian   farmer..  arc 'exceedingly     prosperous     is     revealed'iu  the large quantities of  kind  being  bought  by  them   every day.    A  very   striking   instance   of     Ihis     was  seen  at   Gleichen  iu   Southern   Alberta.      Three   hundred   and    tweu'y livej  parcels   of   laud,   which   consisted     of  ouo   quarter   section   each,   were     pu;  on sale by -auction, beiug  the balance  of  the   lands  in   the   Klackfool   Indian  Reserve   surrendered   by   the    Indian;'  under   a   treaty.     This   sale   attracted  nearly  one. thousand buyers, of whom  tiie great   majority  weiv  farmers from  '.'. radius ol" two hundred miles, in  fact,  local   fanners   were   iin'     highest   bid-  ders.     I.and speculators   who attended'  (lie sah' couhl no', compete wiih them  in   llu*   prices   which   ihey     bid     and  were   more   or   less   silent.     Another  notable   fact   was   llu*   presence-     of  a  number   of  American   farmers  intending   to   start   farming   in  Alberta.    "If  the  hind  is as  good as  it  looks, it   is  worth   double the  price,"  said  a  "Mir. ���������  ncsola   man  after  paying  $.*<)  au   acre  for   a   qu-*rler   section   of  land.       The  average price  was about $30 per acre,  the highest being $45, which was paid  by   a   Gleichen   man.     Allowing   for a  certain  inevitable  element  of  speculation, it is believed certain that 90 per  cent,  of  this land has passed  into  tlu*.  bands of actual  farmers.

Hunter oi the Swift Canadian ' Co.,  spoke along the same Hue, demonstrating by a set of pig skins the effect of the unnecessary beating sometimes given to hogs by those who  handle-  them  during  shipment.  ".Don't beat your hogs. Bruises  mean immense, losses to farmers,  drovers   and   packers.  '' banners should bed wagons well  and not overload when bringing hogs  to town.

A   Ihin  growing  pig  will   produce   dollars   to   the   farmer,   but     is  worth   little  to   the  packer.

Fatal Policy  Dr. Adams Speaks on Proposed Land  Settlement  for  Soldiers  "The placing of returned soldiers  on the land, under present conditions,  will be a fatal policy," said Dr. T.R.  Adams of the conservation commission, Ottawa, at the public health session of the Canadian Medical association convention at Montreal. The soldiers do not want to go on the land,  he said, not so much because they  object lo farming, but because under  present conditions farming does not  pay and most areas available for settlement arc too remote from . the  markets. Dr. Adams stated that" the  conservation commission had found  th.at conditions in the slums of the  cities were no worse than in many  iural districts. This was due largely  to land speculation, hc said.  ARLINGTON  WATERPROOF COLLARS AND CUFFS  V>o away with aU LaunOtr Bills. Whon they  become soiled Just -wasTi tliem w*Ith aoap an4  water.

British patrol fleet on duty off  the- north of Ireland discovered a  German submarine base on Tory island.  This island is 9 miles long and 12  miles from the Irish coast off the  county   of   Donegal.  The Americans learned that six  Kirn, found to have been the ringleaders in supplying U-boats, were  shot. A quantity of fuel oil was confiscated, together with provisions,  und from talks the- British officers  had vvith the isbmders it was believed German commanders also were  gvUitig from the i.sland reports of the  movements of British vessels.  Many men and women were said  to have, had a part in the supply of  the U-boats, but viiost of them were  'given to understand tliey were American  submarines.  The crews never came ashore and  the boats flew no flags. Some of th..*.  six men who engineered the. scheme  rowed out to the vessels in fishing-  dories with their supplies. Almost invariably the submarines put in an appearance after dark and disappeared  before  dawn.  Mow long the base had been established was not ascertained, but it was  believed to have existed for several  months.  ���������Many of the largest vessels tor-  I (*doed have been sent to" their doom  off Tory island since thc middle of  April, 'ihe. island is on the lane, cf  steamships entering and leaving the  north channel between Ireland and  Scotland.  The channel has been used by many  'vessels seeking the open Atlantic of  late, insfM'd of going down the Irish  sea around lo thc south of lrehuv.'��������� as  it was figured that once through ihe  shortx.channels thc vessels would be  iu the open sea and have far less  distance to travel in submarine wat-  than  in  the  Irish sea.  Because of the. frequent operations  of U-boats thereabouts small patrol  boats were sent into all the . small  bays to ascertain if there was a base  in any -of them. After several days'  search it was learned the boats had  been-to Tory island; and a summary  ijuestioning of the inhabitants resulted  in   the  rounding  up  of   the  guilty;  six.

Russia Will Weather Gale  Patience  and   Docility   Expected  to  Bring About Order  One believes Russia will survive  in thc end, but it is hard to give definite proof for one's belief. Little of  the first joy of thejcvolulion is left.  Sometimes one'may come across it  in a sheltered corner where people,  are working.quietly aud thinking out  plans for the future, but here, in the  midst of the hurly-burly, in the fevered atmosphere of Petrograd, where  passion has fought itself weary, and  reason is baffled, by thc all-prcvading  influence of something very like insanity, the present is quicksand and  an almost irrational'hope, in the future  is  the.  only stay. \  Russia will work through, but at a  cost of what suffering aud what tumult?  It is believed something very great  will eome from this quarreling and  fumbling and bitter recrimination  and wild chasing of the. will-o'-the-  wisp, but to live, daily in au atmosphere of midsummer madness and  within a hand's breadth of doom; lo  fe*'cl every moment that the social  order is stripped bare and exposed lo  all the elements, is exciting certainly,  but it is almost loo much for this  sorely   tried   generation   lo   bear.  The marvelous- patience and docility and great faith of a great mass of  tiie Russian people alone make it  possible to weather such a storm, lu  l.larytsin, on the Volga, where the  fanatical monk Ijliador once swayed  crowds, there is complete and apparently hopeless anarchy, hut in Tomsk  the local Socialist committee, has  established order with the help  troops after a desperate struggle  ii a curious  fact   that  despite  ���������en'.lv   miiVM'eaJ   demand  n-  of  ll  the ap-  for land  nationalisations and expropriation of  all private lands the Jews, who -ire  shrewd business men, arc rapidly  buying up land all over "Russia,  a r c  "Now, in order to subtract." the  teacher (^plained, "things have always to bc of the same, denomination,  l'or instance, we couldn't take three  -'T'T'L- frei'-'i f'.M'r **"',"*'", **'">'��������� *-"v lioc.i>u  'fiom   nine dogs."

Possessed Military  Secrets  German Empress Caused the Russian  Revolution'  "To begin with, nothing* could be  more gradual and inevitable than the  growth of the revolutionary spirit iu  Russia. The public in Great Britain  and France was, to some extent, misled by an indiscriminate censorship  and out-of-date sentimentalism on  the subject of "Holy Russia." But in  Russia itself the only people who refused to see and to understand were  to be found iu thc immediate vicinity  of the Czar, within the narrow circle formed by the court camarilla  clinging  to   arbitrary power.  "The most dangerous person affected by that curious color-blindness was the Empress Alexandra.  When the intelligent and generous  Grand Duchess Victoria, the daughter of the late Duke of Edinburgh,  tried to make Alexandra Feodorovna  understand that the reactionary policy followed by the Czar and inspired  by the Empress was creating universal discontent and threatening the  dynasty and the throne, shc was met  by a flat denial. "I know you mean  well," the Empress is reported to  have said, "but you do not know in  the least what you are talking about.  It is only the wretched intellectuals  who agitate against autocracy, in  their lust for power and at the. instigation of thc Germans. The Russian people are with us and will support life." The hypnolizcr's���������Raspu-  tin^jv-lestimony had more weight in  the view of this unfortunate woman  than the warnings and entreaties of  Grand Dukes like Nicholas Mikhail-  ovitch, of the Empress Marie or of  her own oister, Elizabeth Feodorovna.  "As for the Czar, he felt what was  coming, and at times made feeble attempts to free himself from the coils  of the camarilla; but lie was  much fascinated by his wife as  was fascinated by Rasputin  other quacks. "Quos perdere  Jupiter prius demetanl.t'  "All those who had eyes to  watched the tide of discontent  ing day by day. It was not mainly  a case of accumulated grievances on  account of high prices, lack of bread  and find, defective transport. It was  not only among intellectuals that  speculated on the scope and  ions of the palace catastrophe to come; on the spread of terrorism; on the connection between  home disorders and inefficiency at  the front; on German intrigue and  the treachery of high officials. Ominous, though simplified, formulas-  were passed from ear to ear. A great  commander had said, "Victory is not  the aim at headquarters." The common people had a ready explanation  for the dragging courso. of thc war:  'Mow ean wc expect to win against  thc Germans with a German Empress  in possession of military secrets?'"���������  Sir Paul Vinogradofl' in The Contemporary   Review.  as  she  and  vult  see  ris-  Autos in Guatamala  High  Demand  Is Increasing Despite  Cost of Living  "Although handicapped by' the- absence of any considerable . extent of  good roads in the Republic of Gaute-  mala, aud in spile, of the high price of  gasoline (now* 60 cents United Stales  gold per gallon*) tlu* demand for and  us** of automobiles has so increased  within recent years that there are  now approximately 150 cars in the  Republic, of which 123 are registered  by the municipality of Guatemala.

"And no wonder," says Bill, "the  way  some folks is  sowing it round."  They were old friends, Bill Harvey  and Dan Brodie. They had conic  west together, more than twenty  years ago, and..had settled in thc  same district. Dan had bought a  farm. Bill had opened a store in  the town, which, at that time, was  just a collection of rabbit hutches,  with'the boss hutch the railroad station.        ���������������  The_ little hamlet had "doubled itself seven times since then, and  Bill's and Dan's bank account along  with it. For the last few years, however, there had been no sign of a further "re-double," and, as it happened,  .that was one reason why Dan had  driven in to see Bill that evning. He  wanted to. ask him a question.  Now Dan and Bill were good  friends still, aud had a mighty solid  respect for each other.' But you  know what business is, either that of  farming- or running a country store.  Tt keeps a man's nose right down to  the grindstone, if he Vis going to  amount to anything, or stay amounted. Besides which, it begets all kinds  of separate "interests" and some - ot"  Bill's and" Dan's interests c*o"uld not  have been harnessed up together. For  they pulled in different directions  sometimes and would have made a  poor team. Still, as I say, they were  good friends, aud Dan, having put a  couple of fine bays in the stable, was  not sorry to see the cheery glow of  Bill's  stove,  this  bitter  cold evening.  "Say, Bill, says Dan, after he had  got himself" sorted out comfortably  in Bill's best chair. " 's this berg got  the. dry rot." Dan was never one  to beat about the bush much. Neither  "was Bill, for that*, matter. Out west,  they  puiicd bushes  out  by  ihe  roots.  Bill shifts his pipe along a fence  of white even teeth, to tothcr side of  his mouth. "Shouldn't wonder," lie  says. "Some folks go sowing- it  round  thick enough." .  Dan sees that Bill is sore ovcr  something and trys lo think where  he's beat Bill out on a deal lately.  But the last bit of business they did  together, Bill had put one over on  him, fair and square. .So he's a bit  puzzled, but Bill's next remarks gives  him a  light.*  "That *iyas a fine cargo o' Flim-  Flams you shipped in last week,  Dan," he. says. "Guess you'll be starting a notion counter in your cow  barn."  Dan puffs pretty hard on his old  pipe arid answers slow but stubborn,  "Now look here, Bill, I can't stop the  Missus sending outside for a thing or  two. Yo*1r know how a woman gets  took with one of them catalogues.  She goes crazy and wants to order  every darned pictur" in the book. Shc  sees things illustrated there 'at she  never, even heard tell of before and  feels 'she can't live any longer without 'em.

''I was coming to that  if you'd only listened. I did happen  to, squint through that catalogue myself, and they had your prices just  beat to nothing'on them things."  Bill: "I'll tell you something Dan.  You give me a duplicate of that order  you sent two hundred miles away,  and on the sum total I'll undertake to  give you better value for your money.  Vour business is farming. Mine buying and selling. I know what I am  up against in them catalogue houses.  I ought to.

Up till the beginning of April offensive there, was still general confidence among prisoners that .Germany.  v,-ould win this war. This was, thc  basis of that decent serf-res'pect  which forbids that a soldier lay-  down his arms so long" as he has  even a slight lighting chance. Now  it is an uuvarvi'ng testimony that recognition of coming defeat has taken  much of the ginger out of the rank.  and hie of the enemy, and has even  caused the arrogant Prussian officer  to carry his haughty head Jess  -haughtily. .  -���������  Prisoners taken during the past  few Jays no longer care lo conceal  their satisfaction at being captured.  None of them is greatly interested in  terms for peace. They concede that  ���������Germany must in the end accept  whatever conditions are imposed by  the allies.     ���������        '  A German noncommissioned officer captured during the present operations said that the cheerful bearing and high morale of the men of  the British army reminded him of  the. attitude of the German troops >n  1914.  This change in sentiment among  ihe enemy soldiers has uot beef?  brought about by- lack of food or of  war "material. The rations of the  Germans lack variety, it is true, but  are undoubtedly sufficient to keep  the men in good physical condition.  The scarcity of artillery ammunition  has been emphasized in enemy documents recently captured, but for important actions there seems to be as  yet no lack. The decrease in the activity of the enemy artillery is chiefly  of the. sort known as "harassing fire"  in which shells are directed on roads,  trenches, villages and other positions  where human targets are supposed to  be gathered. In repelling attacks and  in "preparing the"way for counter-attacks the German artillery is still  formidable. ""        .  Other weapons most used by the  enemy are machine guns and bombs.  Prisoners captured immediately after  they had concluded a course of_inst ruction said that bayonet exercises  are no longer taught in the training  of men for the enemy "line. Recruits  are instead, trained in the use of the  various   sorts   of   bombs.  .  P?iP&  I  X  Thoroughly Trained  American  Seamen   Are  British  Praised   By  Yicc-Adrniral Sims, commander of  the allied fleet of submarine chasers  off thc Irish coast, and the first time  an American naval officer has had  complete control of part of the British fleet, marks an epoch in history.  What a real testimonial this is to the  efficiency of Vice-Admiral Sims may  bc seen from thc following answer a  high British naval officer gave to the  question: "What does the British  navy think of the American destroyer  flotilla f" "You tell your people that  we cannot speak too highly of the  American officers and men now working off thc Irish coast," the** F.nglish-  miui replied. "They have, not only  reached our expectations, they havo  surprised us. Kvery day brings more  proof of their careful and thorough  training and their ability to handle,  different tasks. It is very gratifying  lo us that they have hitched so well  with our men."  The credit of this is due as much  lo Vice-Admiral Sim's effort as to  the excellence of thc American seamen, and the, British art* showing that  tlu y recognize the fact by giving the  American command of their ships in  their waters.
