So near as we can figure it out Ores-  ton stuff was entered in 80 different  sections of the fair.and all told captured at least .90 prize tickets of which  50 were firsts and 40 seconds.  Of course the ^big clean up was in  the  four  fruit departments���������applas,  nlntnia.     tntxava    sjnrl     m������ho       In     ovanv  t ��������� ������     i     ���������������������������     -'-������������������������'���������      ���������������     **,���������.. j  section in these lines, save the *'Any  other variety ciabs," all the first and  second prizes came to the Creston.

The  awards we did not carry off in crabs  were won by a variety that the list of  awards classes as Anon, and bn these  two Cranbrook ranchers scored a win.  . In the roots and;' vegetables Creston  peeled off 13 firsts and 10 seconds in a  showing in 17 different classes*   'Note-'.  ������*������rfchyy*'i>������^  ' Rbb^Stark^ymSf:-i^,^^aII-:.^he^CB^Bage''  prizes; Ed.

Fraser  second, and on the plate show Roy  Staples was irt front, with Mr. Littlejohn second. -In winter {wheat D. _G.  Lyon led the : field and in -field corn?  Mrs. McKelvey gets first with E. E.  Cartwright second. In Swede turnips, field carrots, parsnips, citron and  onion as. well Creston led the field.  In the roots classes honorable mention  is due Mr. Machon 'who landed three  tirsts nnd two seconds on ten entries.  The quality of Creston flowers is  shown in the one entry made landing  a first prize. Incidentally this was a  boquet that was not taken down for  shown purposes, but more as a try-it-  jnst-for-luek , incident; was placed in  competition. These lyere Mrs. For-,  roster's sweet peas���������the same sort as  won here at the Institute fair. ���������  In the dairy section there wus  nothing to it but Creston. In dairy  butter, in which only four firsts and  two seconds were available, Mrs. W.  V. Jackson annex ted the quartette of  red tickets and Mrs. Walmsley got  erne of the twe> seconds. Mi>s. Jackson  wnB equally fortunate in the art department getting thrice firsts on threo  entries. In thesame department Mrs.  Walmsley also brought home a first  and a second on two ontrien. In  ladies work, too, Mrs. Walnisloy  Moored a first and two seconds on five  entries. Just what othor successes  thero woro in tho ladles' work line wo  cannot state as tho official list of winners has not come to hand yot.

As yet no further details are to  hand, and apparently the boat the  unfortunate Glazer was drowned from  has not been located. As the body is  commonly supposed to take nine days  to rise to the surface, and as it is now  that many days since the mishap, the  mystery may be finally cleared up  within the week.

The local freight that took it to  Cranbrook did not >reach there until  long after midnight Tuesday, and as  all exhibits had to be set up r������ady foi*  judging before noon (in. Wednesday  even a start at 6 ev'clock that morning  did not give sufficient time tocompleta  the work until slightly after noon of  Wednesday. Thanks, however, to the  courtesy of Se<:retftry McDermott and  the other "fair officials the time to  commence judging was extemded  sufficiently to allow of. the' arranging  of the big list of stuff in good shape.  In this connection, too, a good \ve>rd  is due A, McL. Fletcher, Dominion  fruit in spec-tor, ami Alex. Duperry,  who were in Onnbreiok at the time,  for volunteering to Kelp with the work  of getting* the stuff placed right���������a  job' that necessitated at 'Imist live hours  of steady going .Wednesday, and a  very lain dinner in the Imrgain.  Tho Cretiton display was royally  welcomed by the Cranbro(������k pi-ople;  without the mammoth display from  Creston the show in the main building  would have been hardly as attractive-  as it was. In addition to tho directors  citizens generally were loud in their  praise of Creston's enterprise on the  occasion.  . Taking into account the immense  satisfaction thc effort gave, as woll as  the all round success' of tho venture���������  financially as well as from the publicity  standpoint���������rit would scum assured  thnt Creston's display at tho fair will  again be a regular feature of the East  Kootenay exhibition.  All tho fruit and vngetabloH mIiowu  woro bought up' readily, tho Cranbrook Jobbens. Ltd., buying tho whole  lot, much to tho regret of many citizens, who wero willing to pay for nl-  moHt ovory thing shown. The butter  exhibited found speedy sale at top  prices, somo of the prize* stuff fetching  aa high as 75 centa a pound.  Mrs. C. M. Loasby spent several  days with Cranbrook friends last  week, taking in the big fair.  Mrs. R.

A small bottle of freezone costs  very little at any drug store, but will  positively take off every hard or soft  corn or callus. This should be tried,  as it is inexpensive and is said not to  irritate   the  surrounding  skin.

Thc  method of preparation is simply to  slake one pound good quicklime with  a small quantity of water, and then  s\ir the milk of Time so formed into  five gallons of water. After the mixture has been kept well stirred for  a few hours it is allowed to settle.  The supernatant liquid, whicli is  nort* "saturated" limcwater, is drawn  oli and poured over the eggs, previ*-  otisly placed in a crock or watertight barrel. As exposure to the ait-  tends to precipitate the lime (as car-J  bonate) and thus to weaken the solution, the vessel containing the eggs  should be kept covered. It is essential that only perfectly fresh eggs  be   secured.*  Demand For  Canning Information  More Than    Usual    Interest    Being  Taken in Subject This Year  The Manitoba department of agriculture iias been obliged to -publish  a second edition of the bulletin,  "Canning by the Cold Pack Method."

'    First  are   lasting,  tin-  even  Good Work  Creston Valley exhibits swept  the board in the fruit section at  the East Kootenay fair at Cranbrook last week. A very satisfactory lot of awards were also  garnered in vegetables, dairy products and some other lines.  While in the fruit classes there  was little or no competition from  other orchardists, this fact does not  hold true in the other departments,  in which, we are told, thei*e were  large entry lists and much excellent  stuff shown.  And while thc successes in those  lines in which Valley exhibitors  had to meet outside competition  will bring the greatest elation  locally, those who havo the future  welfare of the community at hoart  will find greatest satisfaction in  the splendid all-round success of  the effort.  For mostly local (and some of  them good ones) reasons Creston  Valley for four or live years hack  has neglected to tako advantage of  such opportunity as outside fairs  offer to show to interested communities the quality of Valley  products of different, varieties.  To effect ti come-back of this  *ort on such a splendid scale, and  it the same timo lend snob appreciated assistance in making a  ���������mr-cess of a friendly-rival town fall  fair iH surely a final purpose effort  that is worthy of tho expense, time  and energy apont on it.

Having paid our respects to  Creston's praiseworthy exhibition  effort abroad, the question naturally arises, Why not a Creston Valley exhibition of our own.  Two weeks ago the local women's institute staged a fair iu  their particular line that for  quantity and quality of exhibits in  the respective classes won the  admiration of all���������and this for  prizes that in some instances indicated tliat the contestants were  not actuated solely by monetary  motives.  At the Cranbrook fair last week  largely due to the initiative of the  board of trade, with the hearty cooperation of some of the ranchers,  or two j almost solely for publicity purposes,  the Valley put up a display of  fruit and vegetables that, in the  latter elass alone, would have done  pretty fair justice to this part of  the country at this season of the  year.  Now that the ladies feature of a  fair of this sort is an assured thing,  and the men-folk have again  bestirred themselves why not a  Creston Vallej** exhibition next  year, to run* concurrently with  Cranbrook to facilitate the visit of  outside judges, and give us a  chance to help out the East Kootenay fair in such lines as the conn-;  try immediately tributary to it  does not produce���������at some advantage to ourselves-in an advertising  way, and at no financial loss.  With the customary government grant available, plus entry  and admission fees, the financing of  the show should not be burdensome. In fact the only trouble to  anticipate would be getting quarters sufficiently large to bouse tbe  exhibits offering.  The. Value of a fruit fair, especially, cannot be accurately estimated.  Undoubtedly   any   prestige Nelson  enjoys  as  a fruit centre must be  due to her annual exhibition���������now  fifteen   years  old.    Certainly   the  place can hardly claim recognition  on the quantity or quality  of the  fruit grown, or shipped from there.  If, however, production in this lino  is   a   factor   there   then   Creston  should be four times more  prominent than Nelson  for assuredly our  fruit export is 400 per cent, greater.  Locally   this   fact   may  not be  apparent, but fact   it is, anywhere  off   the   Crow     line,    that   when  Kootenay  fruit is mentioned four  out of every five people  have somo  recollection   of Nelson,   and   that  town only���������and largely on account  of the fourteen or fifteen fruit fairs  the placo has had, somo of which  tho  Creston   Valley   has    helped  mako a success.  A fruit fair in a coutry situated  as is tho Creston Valloy is an asset  too many growers ovorlook entirely,  an asset vory dirootly tboirs and  very indirectly ono of tho board of  trade, for instance.

LETTERSTO the editor  Win the War  The General A'ssernbly of the Pres-  .byterian Church in Canada endorsed  ���������"the. policy .of .selective conscription  as applied to the battlefield, and of the  universal conscription of fche talent,  .wealth and . energy of the Canadian,  people." And the hope was expressed  -"that in this Crucial time, when united  service and sacrifice are so urgently  demanded from .us, till minor differences will be put aside in si common  enthusiasm to win the war."  The Presbytery of Kootenay, which  met lately at Nelson, gave hearty expression to the same sentiments in the  following resolution: "The presby  tery, having regard to the serious  crisis in.our national affairs and the  importance of rallying all our forces  for the prosecution the war, express  their hearty concurrence in the action  of the General Assembly in recommending selective conscription of men,  just taxatisn .. of \vealth, and the  utilization of all other resources for  this great end.^' They further exhort  their faithful people to endeavor to  fall in with the regulations eif the food  controller, so that the Allied nations  may be secure in the possession of the  necessities of life."  The above sentiments are further  strengthened by the programme of  the Win-the-War League, which calls  f-or.(l) The formation of a, national,  union, non?party, win-the war government; (2) The immediate enforcement  of selective conscription by the  Military Service Bill of 1917; (3) The  immediate mobilization of our resources, the taxation^ of' wealth, and  the prevention of profiteering. And  the League's for the purpose of making the foregoing effective pledge  themselves to support no candidate  forelection to the house of commons  who will not subscribe to the above  principles. ��������� II.

Whole Nation Is Guilty  German People Have Participated in  the   Dream  of  World  Domination  Jt is true lhat thc kaiser and the  junker clement have been the arch-  criminals in the. history of German  military molohcisin. But it is undeniably true that the German people as  a whole have had their share in the  dream and the policy of world domination. The conceit of a superior  civilization, .with all its implications  of divine right to rule the earth, has  been an obsession not merely of thc  court, the aristocracy and the army,  but of professors, clerics, men of  science, hankers, merchants, captains  of industry and from these down to  workmen in the factories and students at the schools. Even thc women have not been free from the delusion that "Dcutschland uber Alle*iv  was thc eleventh commandment superseding and incoporating the other  ten. The fruits of this all embracing  passion of war for conquest and  supremacy through violence arc the  submarine murders, the bombing of  Loudon, thc atrocities of Belgium  and northern Trance. The wocsl  fruit of all is the alternating glorification and condoncment of these unspeakable things by the public opinion of Germany.���������From the New  York  Sun.

B. C,  W-.SiW  the series of miscalculations by the enemy  Eminent Writers Believe That There Are Forces Outside Of Our  Knowledge And Control Which Govern The War Situation  And Are Dominant Factor in Controlling Events  In   one  of  his   illuminating  articles  in  hand and Water, Mr.- Arthur Pollen has recently shown what the Germans might and  could have done in  crippling  out*  fleet when  it was     reviewed by the King near Portsmouth  in-. 3914,   just   before   the   war   broke  out.     But  the ^Germans   never    contemplated the  likelihood or even  the  possibility of    Britain    entering    the  si rife.        Mr.   Pollen    remarks., that  though   they  have  shown  themselves  ������1!  through these three years greatly  daring, yet they dared just too little  at  the outset,  and  that, though they  have   proved   themselves     to  be   diabolically wicked, they were not wicked enough to win.   If at that ijioment  they knew, as they did, that war was  inevitable,   they  ought,     Mr.     Pollen  argues, to have risked the possibility  of Britain coming in, and to have remembered  that  first  of  all.    If  only  ' their foresight had    been    equai    to  their subsequent want of scruple they  could have    done    Britain    immense  damage, and delayed action by    our  fleet  for at least  six months.      Thc  Germans have thus given an example  of  childish  folly  hand in  hand   vvith  -..trocitrious wickedness and cunning.  It   is   no   wonder     that     Mr.   Pollen  ������-.��������� notes  some  striking- words  of    the  great jurist,    Sir  Frederick  Pollock,j  words  which  deserve to  be    perma-|  nently  remembered:   "The    Germans j  will* go   down   in   history  as   people  v.jjo l'orcsaw cvery-xiimg except wnat  actually happened, and calculated everything   except  its   cost     to     themselves." '  There is nothing more remarkable  than the series of German miscalculations. Not only did they assume  th.at Britain would nOt intervene,  they reckoned on Irish discontent,  the independence of the various parts  of the. British empire, aud a sudden  jitiack on France through Belgium  before Russia could be ready. Then  . in the war itself," some most impres-  sivev aud significant instances have  occurred. It is well known that at  the Maine everything indicated that  the worst would happen, and, if rumor be. correct, this was believed  even by our high command, and nobly faced. Yet suddenly everything  was ^changed, thc retreat was arrested, and "tlte miracle of the Marne"  is now a $ well-recognized phrase.  Then, too, in the closing days of  October and thc beginning of November, 1914, the Germans suffered  a severe defeat on thc Yser. They  might* havc had the coast of Belgium  and France without difficulty  they first entered thc country,  they were in too  fret to Paris  at niy  had  -���������num. But even on the Yser  Yprqs, when a thin line of  soidievs withstood an overwhelming  mass of Germans, it is now- known  that with fi little more pressure and  perhaps only another half an hour or  so of fighting, the Belgian coast  But in either case it is possible and  important to distinguish between  means and source, between thc human factors which seem so natural and  ihe Divine power which controls, the  "divinity which shapes our end,  rough-hew them how we will." It i;  this reminder of thc presence and  power of God that the writers  quoted so strikingly illustrate  vindicate. It says to every man  all his cleverness, and every  with all its power; "Thus  far  now  and  with  nation  shalt  thou comc, and no farther." And it  gives a solemn emphasis to those  truths of righteousness and judgment  on which the universe is based: '"The  mills of God grind slowly, but they  grpid exceeding small. -Though with  patience. He stands waiting,* with exactness grinds He all."���������Toronto  Globe.

An able writer has pointed out four  reasons for this attack whieh was no  sudden decision, but a carefully prepared effort. .Tliyre. was the military  reason which seemed to insure success to the Caimans and would involve terrible, embarrassment to the  French. There was the political reason, involving the detachment of  France from the Allies, and peace ou  Germany':, terms. Tliere. w;is the  dynastic,   reason,   the  prestige  of   the  Entente   Victory   Would   Have  Great Effect, Says Author  of J'Accuse  A sweeping victory by the Entente  Allies, sufficient in its effect to rouse  the German people to a realization  that they have been deceived, is the  only thing that will bring about a  revolution and the overthrow of the  Hohenzoiierns, according to- Professor Herman Fernau, a German journalist and author of J'Accuse, a pamphlet published in Switzerland at the  beginning of thc war and suppressed  by the Swiss government. Fernau,  now a political refugee in .Switzerland, is quoted in an interview obtained by the Switzerland correspondent of thc Russky Slovo.  "I consider a revolution in Germany possible only in event of a  sweeping military victory by the Allies," Fernau is quoted as saying.  "The fortress of the Hohenzollerns  is impregnable in appearance only,  and it may tumble to pieces at an unexpected moment. Germany has been  deceived by a continuity of official  lies since the bcginr.m'g of the war  vdien the German government announced a French airplane, raid on  Nuremberg and that Russian troops  had violated the frontier.  , "Later on, the Socialists learned  that they had been deceived, but had  not the courage to change their attitude-. The Socialist party in Germany, moreover, is a big capitalistic  business. They have 25,000,000 marks  invested in various enterprises.  "On August 2, 1914, Chancelloi  von Bcthmann-Ifollweg called allthe  Socialist claders in Germany into  conference and he told them bluntly  'either you will be with us or we  shall destroy your organizations.'  Thc Socialists decided to support  the government and continue their  business.  "There is no doubt," thc interview  continues, "bnt lhat thc repression in  Germany of any popular movement  will be attended, by terrible results,  and a revolution will be. the bloodiest  that the world has ever witnessed.".  Barrier Tight Against Subs.  Germans Try to Break It But Their  , -.*' Efforts. Are Futile  ���������.Across the eastern .mouth of the  English Channel there still stretches  the great barrier, which :s one of thc  principle defences of the Allies' vital channel traffic against the'v-isit of  the German submarine.  _ The 'barrage," they call the barrier, in naval phrase. It consists in  general terms of a series of- "obstructions" stretched from huge steel  buoys, shore to - shore twenty-odd  miles. Any craft which strikes one  of these obstructions straightway explodes a group of mines which spell  finis to the intruder.  A whole fleet of naval shipping is?  constantly engaged in maintaining  and patrolling the great barrier. Its  existence is no secret to the Germans, for they are constantly sending over airplanes to chart thc buoys  and mark any changes that may have  been made since their last visit. And  changes are constantly ebing made.  Here aud there along the line arc  secret openings through which naval  pilots may guide legitimate craft on  their way, but these openings are  frequently altered, and not even the  airplane eyes of the German can  which buoy marks safe passage  which marks destruction. If  mingrlayiag submarines wish to  ter the channel they must take their  chances. They must cross submerged, for the patrol ..boats are on constant duty, and if'they escape the  traps, while submerged, it can only  be said that another miracle has happened.  Such miracles seldom happen.  Sometimes twice a week, sometimes  oftener, explosions are heard at night  from the great barrier, indicating  that "something" has touched off a  group of mines. Immediately the  patrols hurry off in the direction of  the e-xplosionT "What they find there  is a well-kept secret.  Recently the Germans tried a new  plan to break the barrier. They sent  over threc^seaplanes with orders _ to  descend low^ovcr the great barrier,  at any risk, and shoot their -machine  guns into the buoys, thus sinking  them and the barrier with them. But  the patrol boats were on hand, and  two of three seaplanes never returned to their German home.

Started World Catastrophe too Soon  for Their Complete Success  In 1914 German foreign trade exceeded that of the United States,  and was of much more 'profitable  character. England tvas the only  country ahead of Germany, and the  latter was gaining on her rival at the  i":te of about 15 per cent, a ye.ar. The  German military, naval, and air services were being rapidly expanded,  and but a few more years were, needed to render, the mailed fist, far  stronger than it was in 1914. Other  nations were, begrudging the expense  of armament and holding back where-  ever possible. . Germany was going  ahead eagerly and. joyfully, howevr  er, with a definite and fell purpose  in view. Jrlcr statesmen under-estimated the resisting power of others,  over-estimated ,thcfr own state of  preparedness, or else were pushed on  to action by forces from within the  nation of which no'true analysis has]  been made or can bc until the situation at the beginning of the .war ean i  be studied in thc calmer light off  peaceful retrospective.  They precipitated a world catastrophe .before they were. strong  enough to turn it: to their own complete advantage, ll is possible rhat  thc day would never have come  when Germany could have dictated  her terms to the world, but had she  waite.il ten yeais longer she would  havc, barring- accidents, brought  about a state, of affairs with the  possibilities of which the imagination can only play, lt is bad enough  as it is, and the bill of costs to  humanity for -"even Germany's premature, ellort to become the superpower of thc world will reach a .stag-i  go ring total of which  people themselves will  Hlmre.��������� r.T)." YYhelpley,  ly   Ut-view'.  lhe. chief source of wealth of the  Western Provinces of Canada lying  m their agricultural possibilities, it  is uot surprising that considerable  efforts are made to assist and educate the farmer in the best methods  of farming and disposing; of his produce. The Saskatchewan government, through its department of agriculture, has shown much activity  in this respect. This department was  inaugurated in 1897, and its history,  together with an -account of what it  is accomplishing at the present time,  is interesting; incidentally, it also  reflects the agricultural progress of  the province, which in many respects  is most remarkable.  In 1898 the entire staff of thc department consisted of twc**tjr-five  employees; in March, 1917, the staff'  had been increased to seventy, uot-|  withstanding the fact that the department has been relieved of a  great part of its original work by the  creation of other departments. The  number of farms in thc whole of  the North West Territories, including Alberta and Saskatchewan, in  1898, was 8,346; in 1911 they had  increased to 119,934 in Saskatchewan  alone. Many more have been added  to this number since. The first estimate of crop production was made  by thc department to cover the bar-  vest of 1899, when thc wheat yield  was given as 6,439,183- for the. Territories; iu 1916 the yield- in Saskatchewan alone was 123,448,000 bushels, while in 1915 it was 243,481,000  bushels.  Broadly speaking, the policy and  efforts of the department have been  directed along two main lines: firstly,  educational, ' in endeavoring to promote better methods of farming, and  secondly, economic, or endeavoring',  to improve thc business conditions  of the producers so as to place the  business of agriculture in Saskatchewan upon a sound, permanent and  attractive  basis.  The department has done much lo  spread a knowledge of the methods  of farming best suited to the. province aud has. furnished lecturers for  institute meetings and judges for  competitions at fairs; paid legislative grants to agricultural societies  and provided scholarships for domestic science students. YVi.h the  co-operation of the agricultural col-i  lege- al Saskatoon much educational  work has been carried on, notably by  means of the. "Brtier Farming"  trains, which during the few years  have be'en run through the more re-  ccntly settled districts, giving practical demonstrations and conveying information as to the best farming  methods Lo those whom it would  otherwise have been difficult to  reach. Agricultural education in the  primary schools has heen furthered  by the encouragement of school gardens, assistance at fairs, and the  provision of seeds for school gardens at the  lowest possible cost.  A striking example of what has  been accomplished is shown in the  dairy industry. .The butter output  had fallen as low as 126,8-19 pounds  iu 1-896, and only two of the four  creameries then in operation were  on a self-supoprting basis. In 1916  the production of butter was 2,538,-  061 pounds���������-an increase of almost  twentyfold in ten years���������jfnd there  were seventeen creameries, with  7,205 farmers sending cream. Much  of this growl li is due to the assistance rendered by the department of  agriculture which look the dairy industry iu  hand,  and instituted  a  co  in the form of free pamphlets and  leaflets and in a monthly publication  and are of great aid to the farmer.  The farmer is assisted in obtaining labor by the bureau of labor,  which' was organized in 1917. This  branch secures and distributes farm,  domestic and harvest labor by means  rt    - ��������� j -���������  by  tlte  and  qf 'employment    bureaus,     and  \v orking in    conjunction    with  transportation  and  immigration  thorities.  In the promotion, formation  conducting of agricultural co-operative associations advice .-and assistance is rendered by the co-operative organizations branch, which was  formed in 1911. Pamphlets are also  issued from time to time on agricultural co-operative work, such as Jive-  stock marketing, community breeding, and so  on.  Assistance is rendered the farmer  in -a similar manner by the departments of agriculture of Alberta.  Manitoba and .the Dominion government, and also, by the Canadian Pacific railway company, differing only  in detail from that described in tha  foregoing. The last named also has  a scheme by which the new settler  with limited capital is enabled to have  a farm home with the least possible  delay and discomfort incidental to  taking up raw land. It consists of  what is termed "Ready-made Farms."  These are prepared for the purchaser  by the company, which breaks th������  land, erects-buildings and in some  cases sows the land to crop. Long  terms of payment are given in the  sale of these lands, which enable the  farmer with comparatively small'capital to take a farm of his own and  derive an income therefrom immediately.  Brilliant British Exploit  Did  Motor  s  Boats  Taken to  Africa  Eflfetcive Work  When the histories of the \vir are  written the British blunders that  have received so much attention -will  be -eclipsed by accounts of brilliant  exploits like the one which has just  been received of a fight oil Lake Tanganyika, in the heart of Africa. This  long sheet of water forms the greater part of the western boundary of"  German Hast Africa, and here tha  Germans felt secure in thc possession of three staunch gunboats.  Two motorboats, outclassing the  German gunboats, were shipped from  England to Cape Town and thence  overland by almost superhuman effort. The Aicrinans heard a rumor of  their coming but laughed it to scorn  as sheer madness. The expedition  was hampered by tropical heat and  shortage of water, the men enduring  torture from thirst that the' traction  engines might have what water there  was. After many months thc boats  wore launched on thc lake and in a  scries of brisk running fights cap-  lured one of tiie German boats and  sank  the  other two.  Africa will prove a fruitful source  of stirring exploits and adventures.  The British colonies in that quarter  have accomplished wonders in.self-  defence, in their expeditions into  German territory and in furnishing  troops for other theatres of the wai.  ���������New York  Evening Sun.  the  pay  in   Fortnight  Gorman  i   heavy  Moral of thc London  market  gardener,   w"  io  Raid  had  sue-  be  and  on  see  all  a.ei-  o | > e i  ai.

Certainly no scrap of bacon or bacon fat  should be wasted.   The fat from frying bacon is  sufficiently purified, after boiling in water, for many forms  of cookery in which lard is ordinarily  used.    Tlu*. special use of bacon fat  however,  is in    cooking    meat    and  vegetables.    With baked beans bacon  fat takes thc place of a piece of pork,  while in many meat dishes and vegetable  chowders it  is used instead of  frying pork or bacon cut in dice to  form  a  medium  in  which  vegetables  are browned before further/moking.

Friday was pay day for the successful exhibitors at the 1917 Institute fall  fair when about $200 was distributed.  Of this amount $121 was in cash, and  the balance in merchandise of a verv  ���������tangible variety generally.  October is starting in well in the  entertainmont line. On the tirst the  Methodist ladies have a pie social, and  on the 3rd the Holy Cross Church  ladies are resuming their whist parties,  in Grady's Hall, Fourth street.

Although this is the time of year  when most all fruit is going out largely by freight express shipments at  Creston are heavy. "W ednesday,  which was . a little heavier than  ayerage, saw 172 boxes loaded���������very  largely plums.  Miss Alberta Markwick, who spent  the summer here with Mrs. Cook; was  agreeably surprised on her return to  Medicine Hat last week, to have the  G. A. of St. Barnabas church present  her with an umbrella on the occasion  of her birthday.  The mortality among the Oreston  Indians is very heavy at present. This  week Simon Luke passed to the happy  hunting grounds, passing away on  Tuesday at the mission. He was about  20 years of age and was the youngest  son of old Luke.  Four books nre missing from the old  government libarary. The titles are  Mountain Wild Flowers, The Rival  Crusoes, The Recording Angel, Prince  Otto. Will the parties who haye  these in their possession kindly return  same to F. H, Jackson store  at once.  As near as we can figure it out Creston had entries in 80 different sections,  ut Inst week's Cranbrook fair, and  landed 50 first und 40 second prizes!.  Valley exhibits swept the board in.  fruit and dairy products, and made a  dandy showing in vegetables as well.  R. Lamont has parted company  with tho fine team of heavy, work  horses which he brought in from Cal  gnry last spring, along with another  general purpose animal, to C. F. Caldwell, a well-kuovvn mining man at  Kaslo. They were whipped weBt this  week.  Beyond passing the Adlard account  for $100 for knlHornining tho rooms,  and a couple of other Hinall bills,  practically nothing of importance  occupied the attontion of tho trustees  at tho September mueting on Monday  night, at which there was a full  attendance.

W. Quail of Claresholm, Alta., who  holds considerable land in the Valley,  in the Canyon section, was a week-end  visitor here looking after his interests.  He states in that particular part of  Alberta, on farms that haye been well  farmed .exceptionally good yields in  grain are reported.  Mesdames Forrester and Hayes, who  were judges at the Cranbrook fair last  week, state that the show of cookery,  etc., at Cranbrook was about equal to  the show here, but in the fancy work  line the Creston exhibition had not  fche quantity on display that was in  evidence at Cranbrook.  C. H. Bird, who has boon in charge  at the King George since J. H. Doyle  went to Nelson as sheriff in April, is  giving up the house with the coming  of prohibioioti on Oct. 1st, but expects  a successor along to replace him before  that time. The "dry" law will close  43 bars in West Kootenay.  Under the auspices of the People's  Prohibition Association"*and the W.  C.T.U. a public meeting will be held  in the Methodist church on Monday,  Sept. 24th, at 8 p.m. W. G. W. Fortune, B.A., general secretary of the  people's prohibition movement, will  speak on ' 'Law Enforcement."  Following the fixing of the price of  wheat at $2.20 comes announcement  that the price of the highest grades of  flour have been definitely set by the  milling companies. In West Kootenay points the wholesale price on  brande such as Purity, Five Roses.  Royal Household, etc., $10.90 a barrel  ���������a reduction of $1.70.  W. S. Watson has just boen advised  from militia headquarters at Ottawa  that his son, Sergt. Stanley Watson,  has been given three months' furlough  and is expected to return to Creston  the fore part of next month. Except  when in the hospital, which has been  on three occasions, due to wounds,  Sergt. Watson has been in the trenches  since April, 1915, and assuredly is deserving of the short leave secured.  The board of trade had a special  meeting on Wednesday night when  final arrangements for the reclamation meetings on the 28th and 29th  were completed. To ensure ample-  accommodation for the large crowd  expected it was decided to ask the  Red" Cross Society t6 serve lunch that  day in ^n'der that rthere shall be no  difficulty for the visitors to: get meals.  The reception committee will also  arrange   for   a   ladies'   committee to  entertain any womenfolk who may be  among the visiting delegation. *  The survey party which Chas. Moore  has had in the Bayonne country for  the past two weeks/surveying a group  of claims for Silver King Mike, got  home on Wednesday night. v Mr.  Moore completed the job right on  schedule although three or four rainy  days made things a bit disagreeable.  With him were T. Mawson, E. Rhep-  somer and Frank'Aiken. They state  the huckleberry crop in that section is  very luxuriant, and the fishing in  Summit Creek could hardly be better.  Another Creston veteran who is expected home next monch is Pte. Russell Leamy. Review readers will recollect that he was seriously wounded  bv shrapnel in the lungs at least a  year ago, and f������i' many weeks little  hope was entertained that he would  live through it, let alone e\*er be able  to get around. Of late, however, his  vecovery has been all that could be  desired under the circumstances and  he will probably comeback with Sergt.  Watson, with whom he went overseas  in February, 1915.  and thesame good fortune in Columbia  plums.    She nabbed first  in   box   of\  plums, second in Yellow Egg-plums  second A.O.V. pears, as well as first on  plate of King apples.  Word came on Saturday morning  that Pte. Jim Long had just been admitted "Jm a French hospital to recuperate from a German gas attack,  though just how serious his case is no  information.is given. Jim went overseas with the 102nd Battalion early in  1916 and is the second of the six Valley men to figure in the casualties to  date, Pte. Geo. Jackes haying been  wounded several months ago.  Erickson  Mrs. Bottoinley and children of  Moyie, who have been M rs. Boffey's  guests foi* a few days, returned home  on Mondav.  M. McLeod of Sandon was a visitor  here between trains on Wednesday.  Mrs. McLeod returned with him after  a two months' visit at her home here.  Mrs. G. Cartwright has been named  one of the two delegates from the  Valley to attend the Women's Institute conference at Cranbrook next  week.  Alex. Dupperry, the Erickson delegate at the Cranbrook fair, returned  on Friday, and reports that the Erickson showing of vegetables was the  feature of that department of the  fair.  Eleven of fche thirteen Erickson  ranchers who sent stuff to the Cranbrook fair last week ail landed one or  more prizes. Mrs. Dew, who had one  entry in Mcintosh-Reds, and W.W.  Hall, who hod two plates of apples,  were the only ones who failed to get  on the honor roll.  At':the Cranbrook fair Mrs. Ryckman seems to have more than her  share-of good luck. In Flemish Beauty  pears she got both first and-second,  W&nndei  Lieut. Ashley Cooper spent the  week-end with hisfamily here, returning to Bonnington on Monday.  Mr** and Mrs. Davis h.-ive the  sympathy of all in the loss of their  baby girl, which sad event transpired  yesterday. -'���������  J. J.
