V  13 bundles old linen,  ��������� Briefly stated the aboye shows the  amount of work turned in by members and friends of the Creston" Valley  Red Gross Society for the twelve  months ended Oct. 1st. And the  foregoing'does not include the socks  which the society purchased locally  from time to time and enclosed in tbo  eight shipments of supplies that were  made tor the. Canadian Red Cross  headquarters at Toronto during the  year fust closed.  Compared with the year previous a  gratify ing all-round increase is shown  in the quantity of work done locally.  Thisis particularly noticeable in the  matter of socks, which show a gain of  oyer 1.00 pairs sent, while the quantity  ������tf pyjamas has risen from 32 suits in  1916 to 161 suits in 1917. Articles that  were manufactured a year ago do riot  appear on this year's work list, but  wherever it is possible to make a.  comparison 1917 has held its own in  eyery inst-ance, and excelled its predecessor in most coses. ;::*-*.,'  Financially, too, the year .shows  the same gratifying progress. ; .Inl917  the total cash intake was $554, as  compared with $940 in 1917. The big  nipueyV -making functions the past  year .were the several teas and lawn  parties, which account for $280. The  Reclamation Day dinner and supper  was good for $133. Dances $118, and  membership fees . and badges $103.  About ;the-only fall down was in the  receipts from : the contribution boxes  About town "which only yielded $10,71  this year, as compared with $15.15 a  2^������rVi^o.

Just now it  looks us if much of the 1917 stock of  spuds will be stoied for the big price  in the spring, the t prospect of a mild  winter tempting many to this line of  action.  Henry Hamilton was . advised by  wire on Wednesday that his son,  Pte.. Dav id. W. Hamilton, has been  badly., pounded; in the fighting in  France.'.and was admitted to the Canadian general hbspitjttl at Etretal on  Octoocr, 3i*tl With 'gunshot wound in-  left leg as well un a "Fractured uvni iirid  knee. Pte. Hamilton has been at the  front since early in February and this  is tho first mlflluip of any sort to him.  He aolistod at Medicine Hat, Alta,,  with the 175th Battalion. Nothiugjlu  said in the dieputoh as to the wounds  being serious ho It is presumed'the injuries, \yhile bad enough, aro not as  seribiis lis thoy might look.  The'Octbbei'-meeting-of1 the school  board, on, Monday night, was about  the briefest on record. Chairman  GheVririgtbhir presic^i* ^wifch all the  other rneaibersjpi-essnt.  There was no correspondence to  come before the board, and only one  account, a matter of $6.40 for September supplies,,which was ordered paid.

No more   trouble   is anticipated on  the inatter of water supply.    On the  Occasion   of   his   visit   here   for   the  Reclamation conference   Water Gom-  ptioller" Young spent some time  in  looking -over the ���������^atorWorkscompany  equipment arid the supply of water at  the school,   with the result that the  company   were   ordered to turn, the  water on again immediately, and to  keep it turned on  until- such time as  the authorities at Victoria authorized  the shutting of it off.    The   company  obeyed the mandate on October tst.  .���������Although  no communication is to  hand as yet from" Mr.   Young, he assured that he   would send   along- a  statement <>f   case setting forth   the  exact- rights of both  the   school and  company   under the charter granted  the   waterworks company.    He   will  also- investigate -the legality of   the  charge bifr$6 ;a month' (for ten months  each yea*) that the company has been  collecting from   the school.    Curider  the charter-no   provision  is riiadefor  schools; the nearest thing approaching  the     case     being     the     charge     of  $1.50 per month for residences of five  rooms*and less, which have   only one  tap.,   While it is hardly expected any  such favorable rate  will  be conceded  it is felt that iu view of   t he short  hours of school,. and   that   water is  only used for   drinking  purposes, the  rate charged for residences . of similar  size would about fit the case.

Aud re-  mjimbering his friend's eccentricities,  and that he might be out of town.  Avory wasted no time. He pulled  out a. card, scribbled a tew lines on  it, and thrust it into King's letter  box. Theu he darted doyn the stairs  and back to Bartbelemy's house, at  top speed.  The house looked just as he had  left it. There was not a sign of life  about it. It bore that eminently vir-'  tiious look -which all respectable res-  u'ences should bear at half past two  o'clock in the morning���������that is, it  looked as ir all its inhabitants were  safely in bed and asleep. Bnt Avory  v/ent straight to the door and pressed the electric bell. Somewhere in  the far recesses of the house, he  heard the faint tinkle. There was  ro response to that first summons.  Avory waited a full minute and rang  again. Amother minute passed before he heard a heavy footstep -within. Then a tiny grille, which he had  not noticed in the door, at the level  of his own eyes, was shot back with  a snap and Barthelemy's voice sounded.  "Who  is   that?"  "It  is   I,     Barthelemy���������Avory.       I  want  to  sec  you for a few minutes  ���������on   business,"   replied Avory-       "I  thought you were in."  Barthelemy made a gutteral sound,  expressive of some unknown feeling  at being thus disturbed. But he  snapped to the grill, and opened thc  door and motioned Avory to step  within.  "This is a nice hour- to eall^ upon  business, friend Avory," he said. "Tt  is  bed time."  "I knew you tveren^iu bed, Barthelemy/' answered Avo������"', "because I  saw Otto von Roon come fri just  now."  Barthelemy drew in _ his breath  vvith a sharp, sibillant ".' sound. If  Avory had seen von Roon, then he  had probably seen the ladies leave.  Hc took his visitor by thc arm,  leading him forward.  "It is dark here," hc said. "I will  load you. Von Roon? Yes, he came  in for a drink before going< along.  Your business���������is  it very  private?"  "It's with you and von Roon, as a  matter of fact." replied Avory. "I  wanted to see. you���������together. So���������I  was fortunate."  "This way, then," said Barthelemy  and engineered him along the passage and through "thick velvet portieres into a dimly-lighted hall,'"'in  . which a # door stood nartly open.  "Here you arc," he continued, push  ing# the visitor into a small room in  which von Roon stood on the hearthrug, smoking a cigar. "Here's -von  t* oon.    Vou will takc a drink?"  "Thank you���������yes," answered Av-  orv. Hc looked familiarly at von  Koon. "Hullo!" he said. "1 knew  you were  here."  Von Roon gave Avory a cold  ktare.  "Did you?" he observed.    "Ah!"  Barlhelemy had shut the door as  lie pushed Avory inside. He pointed  his visitor to a chair, and proceeded  io help him to a. drink from a dc-  ���������������������������inur and ������*yphon which stood on  lhe table. lie pushed the glass and  au open box of cigars towards Jiiiiii  and then sat down���������bct\y.������cn him  and tho door. And, picking up his  <**.*, n glass, he nodded to Avory.  Then lie glanced at von  Roon.  "Avory wants to sec you and mc  on  business," he   remarked   tersely.  Von Roon frowned and looked at  tlic  visitor.  "lhi-iniss? Well, I don't know  iiial J have and business with Avory." lie said. "h'speeially at "liis  hour ot" ihe morning.

U.       1170  Barthelemy, I'll begin with a direct,  question: -What game are you playing in connection with the Amaranth?" '. ;".���������'���������.  Barthelemy, who was leaning over  the table with his hands quietly  folded before him, made no show of  surprise at this direct interrogation.  He gazed blandly at his questioner.  "Game?" he said.  .."I said game," repeated Avory. "1  ask you again���������what game arc you  playing in connection with the Amaranth? I only ask what game, because I'm as certain you're playing  a.game as that I am here: Also, I'm  certain that von Roon is in with you  at it."  Barthelemy and vou Roon looked  at each other. Von Roon's countenance was as inscrutable as the elder man's-, and hc saM nothing. Barthelemy spoke���������quietly and unconcernedly.  "You had perhaps better explain,"  he said.    "I do iiot understand."  "All right," responded Avory. "I'll  explain. I may begin by saying that  I have a knack���������unpleasant for some  people-���������o������ looking into matters  which aroused my curiosity. Now my  curiosity .was aroused by a certain  matter in connection with the Amaranth Club some little time ago, and  I've been endeavoring to gratify it.  Like, to know what is was that excited  my curiosity?"  "Much," murmured Barthelemv.  "Much."  "Very well;" said Avory with a  grin. "This. That though everybody's got to turn out of thc club at  ,t\v.o o'clock, certain persons don't  turn  out.    And  yet���������ihcv  aren't    iu'  it."'; Vy,   "  A-.--    V.  Barthelemy nodded his patriarchal  head; von Roon flicked the ashes  from the point of^ his cigar.  "I think/' said iiartheieniy blandly.  "I   think you  should���������particularise."  Avory smiled. He had come to  this venture armed with a goodly  stock of assurance and confidence;  the stock was increasing.  "By all means," he replied. "1 will  particularise-. So perhaps you will-  both of you���������permit your minds to  go back to tlic night when Mrs.  Tressingham returned lo the. Amaranth after having been absent from  it for some four or five weeks. Eh?"  The other two looked at each  otlier. There was a mutual question between theni���������-How much does  this man know?  "Proceed," said Barthelemy quietly.    "Wc���������remember."  "Very good. On that night," continued Avory, "there were certain  persons in the club who did not  leave it at two o'clock. You say I  am to particularize���������so I will. There  was Mrs. Tressingham herself; there  was Jack Hazeldcne; there was Captain Dilkes; there was Lydia' Linkin-  shaw. These four people were in the  Amaranth that 'Slight, but they hadn't left when the club was closed at  two o'clock.    And���������the rule is strict,  BHrtlicleiny.   But���������that's not all." -  He  paused  and    glanced'   at    the  others as- iMo gauge the effect of his  words.     Neither, man    showed    any  effect,     Barthelemy  nodded.  "Not all?"  hc  said." '  "Not all," repeated -Avory.* "To-  nJght Mrs. Tressingham brought  Mrs. George Ellington to supper at  the club. That's in defiance of rule  seven, which says- expressly that  members may not,, under any pretext whatever, introduce friends. I  suppose yoii'll get over that, Barthelemy, by saying that yoti're proprietor? That's rot���������the rule was broken. But that's a mere detail���������insignificant. -'.What is important is this  Mrs.   Tressingham  and   Mrs.   Elling  tion between:, this    house ���������   and  club house," hc answered."  1    YTo Be Continued.)  thc  A Saaer Path  U.S. and Britain Joip Hands' to Set  the Y^orld on *3.

Barthelemy sighed. He, too, leaned towards the visitor.  "And what," he asked quietly,  "what do you iufer from that?"  Avory  laughed.  "That there's a secret commttnica-  the present struggle with all her  might, looks bc-yond it to the prospect of a happier dispensation- in  which all countries may find security.

Ths ofScis.1  proclamation in this connection  appears in this issue, the ' necessary forms to be filled oqit by  thpse liable under the new regulations are in the hands of the postmaster, and the gentlemen who  will decide as to who is and who  is not entitled to exemption from  active service (provided tbey are  medically tit) have been named.  The procedure is quite simple.  Those who wish to claim exemption,  however, must appear before the  medical board at Nelson or Fernie  for examination. If they are  medically sound their application  for exemption will be taken by the  postmaster, who in turn sends it  on to the provincial registrar  appointed under tha act, and he in  due course refers it back to the  exemption tribuual for consideration.

It is also- provided that the  candidate for exemption who is not  satisfied with the decision given  him by the local exemption tribuual  can appeal from their decision and  keep on appealing until the matter  comes l>efore the minister of justice,  who is the court of last resort  Incidentally it is also provided  that the gentleman who looks after  the militia department's interests  at the sittings of the exemption  tribunal may also enter a like  number of appeals in the case of  any parties whom he thinks is not  entitled to exemption.  The regulations also provide  that those who appear before  No\*ember 10th and are classed  medically fit can select the particular regiment iu which they  wish to serve. After that date  this choice will be withdrawn and  the men must join up with the  corps the militia authorities  stipulate. November 10th. too, is  the last date those liable have to  appear for medical examination of  their own free will and accord.  On and after November llth both  the civil authorities and the  special official appointed will see  to it that those who have not a  certificate showing that they have  been up for examination are  rounded up for that purpose by  the strong arm of the law.

You can lift  off any corn or callus  without pain or soreness. __,  A Cincinnati man discovered this ether, compound and named it free-  zone. Any druggist will  sell a 'tiny bottle of free-  zone, like here shown, for  very'little cost. You apply a few drops directly  upon a tender corn or  callus. Instantly the soreness disappears, then  shortly you will find thc  corn or callus so loose  that you can lift it right  oft.  Freezone is wonderful.  It dries instantly. It  doesn't cat away the corn  or callus, but shrivels it  up without even irritating  the surrounding skin  It is not necessary to travel ���������'to  Kuropc aud enter the trenches in order to strike a blow against the enemy of civilization.

Money is a weapon of terrific  force in - modern war, much more  powerful than it ever was in the  past. This means that Germany is  more vulnerable to the hammering of  money, comparatively speaking, than  to the hammering of steel shells.

When  anything unusual is noted, in the  fowl, it is advisable to place tlic-affected individual in; separate quarters. If within a short time recovery does not take place, it is unwise  to destroy the fowl without first ascertaining the cause of the disorder.  The prevalence of disease ' is'; more  often the cause of the poultry-keeper's failure than is the lack of practical knowledge. The extreme importance of keeping the quarters  clean; isolation of all ailing fowls  and^ immediate action in regard to  finding out the cause cannot be too  strongly impressed upon the potil-  try man.  When trouble occurs, forward to  the Biological Laboratory, Central  Experimental Farm, Ottawa, Ont., a-  live but sick fowl or in the absence  of such, a dead bitjd. In the interval  disinfect the qua/tcrs, run's,- drinking  fountains and feed dishes to check  the spread  of the  infectious  disease.  Disinfect the poultry V houses by  spraying the interior with a lime-  wash solution (50 lbs. stone >lime  slaked in a barrel of water: plus one  gallon of a good commercial disinfectant).

It was the  first time the' Germans, used' the gas j  whose poisonous fumes meant torture and then -'dejai'h'.' The Germans  - waited. for the ^-lght Wind and then  sent the clouds of gas onto the Turcos. They did libt understand it. As  they felt Vthe embraces of the suffocating and painful vapor they thought  that" dehiohs or evil spirits*** Were at  work ' and they. ran. They \did not  stop running for ten or twenty  miles, in spite of the hard measures  taken by their white allies to stop  their rout.  Then the gas reached a part of the  Canadians. If they had been veteran  soldiers they might have retreated,  but they did not. The German forces  broke around the*in where the Turcos  had been,- as soon as the gas was  . dissolved, but the Canadians stood  firm. Theyy faced both wTays and held  their place as artillery beat/upon  them with shrapnel and "German infantry charged them with" the bayonet. They held that broken line  not for hours,, but; for' two days, and  there were not many left when tiie  relief reserve reached their side.  -* But they had held the road to Calais, and "if they had not done so the-  Germans would have captured that  most important seaport only a few  miles across the Channel from England, v        ������������������-a-    .- .V'y a P.

The writer has a case to .make,  otit for increased pressure-on construction and it may be taken for  granted that he" docs not understate  liis case.  His figures as to the total loss of  tonnage by Great Britain, and as to  what is vastly more important, the  rate at **3&ich Great Britain is losing  tonnage now, depend absolutely upon the average tonnage of each vessel sunk being 3,776 tons. How does  he arrive at this average? He takes  the' number. of vessels sunk in April  and July and divides it into the gross  tonnage lost in those months as stated by Lloyd George. This is too  slight a basis., for the establishment  of any such average. Very serious  error might creep in when the '.rule  of 1proportion is used to establish totals over a period of six months on  a year. Just for instance, Lloyd  George's figures of tonnage are apparently for calendar months and  the-humber of vessels is given by  weeks. -So soon as the process of  multiplying' an- error begins, ;calcu-  latibhs are of little value as to tbtais  even in the roundest of round fig-.  .ures;.:-:.

Lloyd George's July "loss multiplied  by , twelve gives aV yearly -.- rate of  3.840,000 tons. An average tonnage  per boat of 3,776 tons multiplied by  twenty boats per week multiplied by  fifty-two, j^iyes a yearly rate of 3,-  926,040 tons.

As  he had plenty of leisure time during  the two daily runs, Edison arranged  for .quite an elaborate . workshop in  his quarters, whicli he. equipped with  an extraordinary array of apparatus.  This laboratory on wheels was the  cause of a disaster which., probably-  had more to do "with the shaping of  Edison's career than any other one  things/ fQnc .day a;.-viqle.nt' lu.rcir of  the train "knocked' a stick of'phosphorus from the shelf, which burst  into flames; The timely arrivaV'of  the train crew w-ith water saved the  car from complete destruction, and  the embryo inventor and his -beloved  laboratory were pi.it off at the  next  stop.
