Crisler of Creston, tho flro patrol  between Yahk and the Landing, is no  longer a daily caller here. He went  off the job thc first. of the month.  Provincial Police Carter bf Creston  was a visitor here on Friday,' oh his  way home from Lewis' Island where  he had held an inquest into.the drowning of Mike Glaser, whose body was  found at tho Island the day previous.  Now that there is no resident Presbyterian pastor at Creston we arc  hoping some other denomination will  take on the usual monthly service Instead. Sirdar la not intensely re-  llgloua, but there is always a fair  turnout at all services.  '0p^aaT0^^.

His passing removes an old-time  and familiar figure in the early life  pf Oreston particularly, and coming so soon after the taking of.  Messrs.

Nothing else was  needed.  Hilda  Tressingham   saw*     her  moment of opportunity as regards    the  innocent  letty  Ellington  when    shc  picked up her morning post one day  towards thc end of that session*- and  saw  that  George   Ellington had    departed,   on   the  previous   evening,   in  company  with  the   other  notabilities  of   the   Admiralty,   for a    cruise     to  some  of  the   Scotch   naval  bases,  on  board thc Admiralty yalch. He would  be away for four or five days; in that  linn  much might���������nay, must���������bc effected.    Always prepared for eventualities, Hilda had already    made    full  arrangements  for this episode in  thc  campaign; all that was now necessary  was  to see.

"Marcia always  goes to some settlement or something in the East End when she's in  town, and Mr. Ellington spends every evening at the Reform Club."

Observation Duty in Most Trenches  Requires Cool Nerves and  Great Pluck  There  is*  no  doubt*  that  the  infantryman lias the most unpleasant time  in   this   war,   and   there -is   no   doubt  that.   !u  it.  But there is one job that is not always "cushy" and is apt to become  so exciting that the "foot-slogger,"  safe, in his trench,, will mutter a iit-  tle speech of appreciation of the fact  that he is in the infantry. For the  man who sometimes has "real he'll"  is the observation officer, the eyes  of   the   guns.  Once, long ago, 1 made the discovery that the Germans were digging hard in their trench 35 yards  uway from us. I could occasionally  sec spades tossing iip the earth, and  the carlh always came from the same  place, which obviously meant that  the Germans had some evil intent-���������  were mining or sapping. So we  rang up the gunners, and twenty,  minutes later a major appeared in  cur trench, followed by a telephone  operator who was carrying an immense roll of wire aud paying- it out  as he came along.  "Where's the young officer who's  spotted the Huns at work?" asked  the major: And very proudly���������for I  had only recently come out to the  front���������1 stepped forward and showed him through a periscope where  the  digging  was  in progress.  "H'm! There's no doubt they're up  to mischief," said the major, "but  it's unpleasantly close to shell. You  had better observe with mc," and he  handed me a perisocpe, and issued a  hest of instructions to the..telephone  operator.  "They've fired sir," said the operator, and a second later there w*as a  most fearful rushing above my head  and I ducked as two shells passed  over me and burst a little way be-  know, | yond.  "Bit too far," said the major  do  you  think?"  I explained that I had not seen  very well���������how could 1 see from tlu-  bottom of the trench? /  So the major issued a- lot of instructions about degrees, and said,  "Come down 25 yards." Upon which  I found urgent business at the other  end of the trench. But he had me.  back, and I crouched there, my eye  glued to a periscope, until the German trench was battered almost beyond recognition.  And that appalling feeling that a  shell is just going to vvhisk off the.  top of your head as it passes has  given me a wholesome respect for  the  observation  officer.  And he is very well worth a spe-;  cial interest, for I know that no  man who is apt to find himself in  more, dramatic situations. There ;vas  the" case of an officer who once  climbed a tree just behind the trenches before the dawn and had the  misfortune to be. spotted by the Germans. Their snipers*' sent one ' or  two bullets whistling horribly close  enough through the foliage in a  manner which must havc made thc  observation officer consider seriously  what would happen when lie emerged from betweeu the branches to  climb down the tree. And there he  had to stay' for fully five minutes,  until we had stretched out a blanket  under the tree and had telephoned  to his batctry to shell for all ihey  were worth to persuade the Hun  snipers to keep their heads down.  Then hc jumped for .safety, and escaped with nothing worse than a  flesh wound  in  the  arm.  But still more unpleasant was the  .situation of a subaltern who used to  observe from a cellar of ��������� a ruined  house. He was there one day with a  telephone operator when the Germans suddenly began to "crump"  the village, and the very first shell  lauded near the exit and completely  entombed them.  For. over an hour the two men  worked to make a hole out of their  prison while the Germans dropped  "heavies" all around the house. And  for tools they had nothing but a  bayonet, and a clasy-knife. When ai  last they had made an aperture wide  enough to allow tlicm to escape, a  shell hit the cellar ns they were  crawling out to safety. The telephone, operator waa killed outright,  and the observation officer, pinned  down bv a block of masonry, had to  wait foi* fourteen hours until a passer-by found him. And nearly all  the'time the village was being shelled. ,  An the observation oflieer stopped  ivir ori v. r!>.'1!-po<-V-rd ro-id to IpII  me of his adventure, a machine gun  opened lire and the bullets swish-  swished about our hcadfl. "It's an  exciting life at times," he. said, :\n we  ducked.                                                ,  "lt Is," 1 agreed fervently, and I  hurried off to the blessed safety of  the firing-line.-���������Vernon Bartlett, in  London  Daily  Mail.    Conference On Rust In Grain  A World Without a Conscience Is a  World Destroyed  As wc enter upon the fourth year  of the war, with the United States  now a belligerent, reviewers are inclined to emphasize the physical,  military and economic aspects of the  struggle-more than its moral phases.  Tliere is such a thiug as getting used to crime and being brutalized by  brutality, ahd  it  is  upon  this  theory  of psychology that the  Prussian autocracy depends for support at home  and  to   some   extent  abroad.    Deeds  which  a   few  years   ago  would  have  horrified most of the German people  are excused and applauded by  them  today.    For offences against the la\v  aud humanity which in 1914 awaken-  fcd world-wide condemnation.-.because  they affrighted the. world,  apologists  are now to be found in every country.    Use has calloused thousands. If  by. persistent and successful lawlessness autocracy can deaden the sensibilities   of  a  considerable  portion   of  mankind the triumph is as important  as any it has gained m the    field. In  every expression ofr pacifism we have  proof   that    propaganda,      following  closely on  the heels  of outrage and  perfidy,    is    accustoming     important  elements     to     massacre,     vandalism,  treaty-breaking,     habitual     treachery  under the guise of friendship and the  enslavement   of  brave     peoples.       A  world   capable    of       blinking     these  things would be ripe for the conquest  which   Berlin   long   ago   planned.     A  world  without  a     conscience     is     a  world' destroyed.       Contributing     to  this moral stnpefication hq less than  the  pacifists     are     those      frivolous  Ajnericans  who have to  be  told  every  week  or  two,   sometimes    ever3r  hour  or  two,   why   we., are   at   war.  Civilization  is  fighting  imperial   savagery  in  self-defence  precisely   as  it  fought   tribal  barbarism,  as  exemplified by Apache and Sioux, or fanatical barbarism, as illustrated by Boxers, and Mad Mullahs.    Civilization is  at war  vvith   Germany  not   only  because  of  wrongs   committed but  because of wrongs contemplated. When  it   ceases  to  abhor . the    aggressions  and atrocities  of unbridled power it  will   have  lost   the  "courage   and -the  strength to sustain itself.    From lli?3  time  onward,   Germany   will  not   depend "upon   physical   agencies     alone  for what it will be  glad to consider  a,   tolerable   peace.     To   this   end     it  will  do   what   it   can   to   promote    a  failure of memory on the part of its  enemies.    We see  in  Russia already  thc. results of one such lapse.    In "the  thc last analysis-the cause of the allies and in a special degree the cause  of the United States must rest upon  their unforgettablevdestestation of the  deliberate  villainy   which  forced  this  war upon the world and their invincible   determination   that   its     repetition   will   not   occur   in   the     future.  Without    a    moral     victory      there  there will be  uo victory for  the  nations   wliich   Germany   pillages     and  menaces.       The     more,   fiercely   that  truth   is  set  forth  in   the   forum    as  well   as   on   the   field   of   battle     the  more complete will be their triumph.  ���������From  the   New  York   World.

A ������&& Wow  Bonner's FerryTimes: The meeting at Creston, RC, on Saturday  has ohanged the  views of a large  number of people in regard to the  matter   of  the  drainage   of   the  Kootenay valley.     That gathering  was informed that the B.C. government welcomes the reclamation of  the valley and will stand behind  the project with  the resources of  the province as soon as-the feasibility of the project is established.  Minister of Agriculture Oliver is  a man of broad conception, and haa  an analytical mind  that comprehends the situation.    His position  on the matter is just the position  taken by the foremost advocates of  reclamation in the United States.  Tliere is no sense in .undertaking  the   drainhue   of    the    Kootenay  valley unless the work can be made  effective   and   permanent, and   of  profit to the land under it    This  reclamation is no real estate boom  for the Kootenay valley.    It is an  honest effort of the citizens of the  valley, both in the United States  and  British Columbia, to - interest  their governments in a work whioh  is too big for them to undertake  individually and for whioh there is  no way for   them   to   co-operate  collectively.  The meeting of the British Columbia and United States engineers  at Nelson this week will either  result in a recommendation for the  work to bo undertaken or else in a  request for further research to dem-  ohstrato its feasibility. The cost of  the work is not an impediment,  providing it is not prohibitive, and  uau be worked out profitably by the  land effected.  The citizens of tho two countries  have taken the action whioh is  uoooa-iary to thc nuooo*>ii ot the  undertaking. Thoy havo interoatocl  both governments by showing them  what oan be done with tho land if  tbo inundation can bo done away  with; they havc tried many local  plans without siiooese; thoy have  begun again at the bottom and  while tho work in but started, still  it is much nearer completion than  it h&a ever be&n.

JD. Crawford and family, for Winnipeg, where Jack found it advisable  to try residence on account, of his  wife's poor health in this rather damp  climate. He was a mighty fine nil  round citizen in every way���������the progressive sort of whom Canyon nas  none to spare.  Mrs. Wm. Melnnis, wife of tho mill  filer, and children, got back the early  part of the week from a visit at the  old home at Eureka, Montana.

Kindness to 3oche Prisoner   Is  Repaid After 47 Years  French kindness to a German prisoner forty-seven years ago is bearing, fruit today. Early in the war of  1S70 French troops took a young  German officer prisoner and put him  in a prison camp for the duration of  the war. During the long weary  months of waiting for peace the of  ficcr and his companions were gi\ven  every latitude of privilege lhat a  war prisoner could ask.  Today Marcel Richard, a you'n.<  French officer anel his compatriots in the German prison camp at  Mcister are reaping the benefit. The.  German officer prisoner of 1870, now  too old for active military service,  is commandant of the prison camp.  Young Richard has written home to.  his folks iu Paris for his tennis flannels and shoes, telling them why he  is  able   to' enjoy  this  recreation.  The commandant is not only allowing his charges every possible  freedom, but has purchased the leu-  nis outfit'���������net, racquets, balls, etc.���������  from  his own pocket.

British house of commons  during discussion of the. colonial of-,  five vote Right Hon. Walter J-Iume  Long, secretary of state for the colonies, paid a warm tribute to the overseas armies of the British Dominions. Mr. Long said that the V fine  part played by the Dominions and  frown colonies in the *vvar require-:!  .no special 'description.' The part  whicli the Dominions' troops had taken was well known to the world  and especially to the enemy. Tliey  had made their mark. Whether  thej' came from Australia, New Zealand, Canada or South Africa', they  had shown themselves worthy of the  best traditions of the British army  and no greater praise than that c  be' bestowed   oii Cany   soldier.  Effective Strength Of Army  coulu  lie was vconstantly receiving proofs  of the admiration of the native races  for Great Britain, of their loyalty  to the king and their devotion to"  British interests. In this connection  the colonial secretary read messages  from British East Africa and the Indian Association of Zanzibar. Referring to gifts in kindK he said lhat  while many of them were small, it  was not the amount but the spirit of  the gift that mattered.  The    Dominions   had    made great  sacrifices in other directions, he said.  Many of the Dominions had suffered  severely, owing to the limitations of  imports into the. United Kingdom, although many people failed to realize  the  greatness   of '-the   sacrifices     imposed upon  the    Dominions    in this  connection.    They were also bearing  a  very heavy war  expenditure'    and  were simultaneously called on to bear  a very heavy burden,, owing to interference with  their trade.    Mr.  Long  paid    a   " tribute    to  the magnificent-  patience   and  good   will   with   which  the Dominions had made this  sacri-  Jice.    There  was no  foundation,    he  ���������said, for any criticism that any  part  of the empire had. not done its  full  Vsharc in the war.

But ihe former czarina, who, before, her marriage was Princess. Alexandra Alice of Hesse, had no illusions about the family jewels in the  summer of 1914^ -when she saw the  international war clouds appear, and  sent them in charge of trusted ihc's-  -sengers to her brother, the . Grand  Duke of Hesse, for safe keeping till  peace was restored. The royal emissaries traveled by the way of Finland  and Sweden.

She was  told that she would have to talk to  Mrs. Romanoff or her brother, the  Grand Duke  of Hesse.  Ivan Narodny, Russian business  man and writer of New York, corroborated, the article in the Chronicle. Mr. Narodny said it was impossible to place an exact* value on  the royal jewels, but estimated that  they ought to bring clo'se to one  hundred million dollars in the market. vHe said they were of far great-  cr intrinsic value than the historic  shall [jewels deposited in - the. Kremlin,  which are safe.  The disappearance of the royal  jewels-became known about a month  after'the revolution, when the provisional government's appraisers were  taking an "inventory of the Hermitage,   one   of   the   structures     pf   thc  German  of sav-  to  have  of.     the  visited  had  Hector JBy water, the well-known  British naval expert, writes:  Novel appliances on the battlefield  cannot long be kept secret, but conditions are different in the naval  war.

Thus  it is "possible to gain some notion of  the' trend of naval progress from  the latest designs wliich have been  prepared  for  the  American   navy.  Prior to the war the most powerful battleship in existence was HjM.  S. Queen * Elizabeth. Her displacement was 27.500 tons,, and she carried the formidable " armament of  eight 15-inch guns. Her speed of  twenty-five knots gave her a unique  position among the hattleshjps ��������� of  .the world, whose average speed was  th'cn twenty-one knots, and it-, is  doubtful if this average lias under--*  gone any marked increase so far a������5  battleships arc concerned.  In  other    respects,    however,    the  Queen Elizabeth  has been  quite outclassed   by^ later   i'orclgp   batileships  The American navy has "now in service   two   vessels  named   the     Penn  sylvania and  Arizona,  displacing 32,-  000. tons, and    armed    with     twelve  14-in.   guns,  whilo   five  further  ships  of the  same type are building.      In  this class the armor plating is from  131-2 in.  to  18-in., thick.  Four later  vessels, which will bc commenced in  the next month or so, are to be still  larger.     They   will     displace     32j600  tons and carry eight 16-in.  guns.  Following these ���������comes  the  battleships    of    the   current    program,  in  which   the  displacement  is   raised  to  nearly 40,000 tons and the battery to  twelve'16-in. guns. Merc figures convey   no   adequate   impression   of   the  power that is embodied in such, mastodons   as   these.   The   16-in.   gun    is  almost   68   ft.   in   length. and   weighs  close  upon   100 tons.  It uses  a  shell  of 2,100 lb.  weight,  or only    140 lb.  short of a   ton. This ponderous projectile   leaves   thc   muzzle  al   a velocity   of  2,<*00   ft.'  per   second,   and   is  tfapab'le   of   smashing  into   the  vitals  of   an   enemy   ship     fourteen     miles  away.     If   a   full   broadside     of     the  twelve   16-im   guns   were   fired   , the  weight of metal'discharged would he  11 1-1   tous,  and  the   salvo   could  bc  repeated   every   fifty   seconds.     It   is  only   a  few   years  since   the   original  Dreadnought   was     talked    of    with  haled   breath,   yet   the  weight  of  her  broiid.-'idc  was little nlorc  than three  tons.  The amazing increase in the size  and power 01 naval ordnance has not  been due to any mere craze for  size, but to sound, scientific, reasons.  At long-ranges, other things* being  equal, the largest gun will do thc  most accurate shooting,  heavy shell docs not lose  r-'.o rapidly as a lighter,  which has been tired with  higher velocity.  Li 1914 the largest aud fines f.  battle-cruiser afloat was the Kongo,  buill in ..England lor lhe Japanese  govern incut.

The war may  run   another  year,    but  few  believe  that cither side can hold out longer  than   that.  There  is  the  dire* possibility, too, that "the steady drain of  the U-boats on tonnage, may compel  the Allies to capitiilate, perhaps next  spring, if nothing breaks before^ then.  This is the chief peril,- and one which  America must meet- with the. utmost  energy and with  whatever sacrifices  are found necessary. In this peril is  the true cause of the protraction of  the war; the Prussian eagle has both  talons  sunk deep, and  will hold  on  like grim death so long as there is  a chance of keeping the booty.    Remove    that    chance,  and  an    over-;  whelming peace wave will" roll over  Germany.  The   quicker America  can  make its weight tell in the scales the  better  will be  the - prospect  of   convincing the medieval war lords that  the  game is  up,    and this    is    not  merely a question of getting    troops:  and airplanes    to    the    front but of ���������>  sowing a firm and undivided will at  home.  In all probability the    fourth  year    of,   the war  will  be  its  last;  whether  it  ends  in. the    defeat    of  plans of conquest and. in the establishment of a just and lasting peace  will depend in great measure' on how  this  country  does    its     part.���������From  the   Springfield Republican.  Daylight Saving  The  Results  Have Been Far Afeead  of Expectations  The     clocks     have     been     turned  ahead   one     hour  in    Great    Britain,  France,     Germany,  ��������� Austria,     Italy.  , J Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden,  "_ I Portugal, Australia and  Ireland.    In  all those 12 countries people go to  work one hour' carlier in the morning and quite one hour earlier in the  afternoon than tliey did before the  war. This "daylight saving plan" was  put in operation as a war measure,  partly to save coal, and gas ajxl electric light, because, if work was done  iu daylight hours it must save in  those three things. Also it was done  to help the workmen, especially in  factories, as the first hour's work  flvould be iu the cool of morning, and  thc workers would miss that last hot  hour in siunmcr. It was thought the  plan would mean better' health of  workers  and  a  higher 'efficiency.  ���������'The Nation',9 Business," a trade  magazine, has investigated the workings of the plan, and asserts the results have been far ahead of expectations. In Great Britain an average  reduction of 20 per cent, for lighting  was made. Thc saving of gas was <>  per cent., and in one year 11,500 tons  of oil were saved.  In France thc plan saved 18,001  Jons of coal used for gas each  month, and in one year $6,000,000  was saved on gas and elcctricit}'.  In Vienna alone the saving on gas  was $142,000 a month.
