Letty picked up the much crumpled  scrap with, trembling fingers.^ 'Her  cheeks had turned very pale, but a  bright spot burned in the middle of  An j-Vj  moment's notice*" answered Letty  stubbornly. "And I'm not going to.  I may be innocent, but I know the  value of money. And I repeat���������wc  were playing for sixpences."  Hilda turned her head impatiently.  "That *was Barthelemy's joke. Sixpences! ast if men like those two  would play" for. sixpences'" she said  with a sneer.  "If they're that sort of men, you  oughtn't to have introduced mc to  tlicm," said Letty steadily. "Anyway  I think I shall tell George. He may.  he angry, but he'll believe me."  "And you'll have it noised about  that you spent that night ^ as you  did!"     Hilda  exclaimed.       She    was  restive, for    she  Pounds!" she exclaimed. "Pounds!  And you lost two hundred? And  you say I lost much more?"  "A great deal more," replied Hilda  calmly. "Yoa would go at it so~I  warned you."  Letty drew herself up.  "I understood we were playing for  sixpences," she observed stiffly.  Hilda laughed.  "Sixpences!   Nonsense!    As  if one  plays for sixpences or half    cro\vns,\  either.    Yon  Roon  wants  five   hundred from you."  Letty stared in silence. The_ bright  spots deepened to a full tide of  color, y  "I shall tell George," she said.  "You'll be a fool if you do," retorted Hilda sharply.    "There'll only  am r    niiua  getting angry and  suddenly recognized that her pigeon  was not going to be  plucked    with  You will hand me the case.    At two j be  an almighty row.

"If it only works out  all right as to my getting hold of  the   thing!"  Von Roon shrugged his shoulders  and began opening the letters which  lay piled on his desk.  "That's your look out," he said indifferently" "You know what you  can do. There's five thousand, you  know, for doing it."  Hilda made no-comment. She rose  ajid went towards the door.  "This precious document must be  very important;" she said suddenly.  Von Roon nodded.  "It is," he answered laconically.  "It is a good deal more than very-  important. Well���������-wc shall sec each  other again before this coup conies  off���������yes'?"  Hilda   nodded     and    went      away  thinking hard.    She was conscious of  one  important  fact  in   this  case    of  whicli  she  made  no mention  to  von  Roon.     That   was   that  young     Mrs.  Ellington,  simple  and innocent -as  a  lamb amongst wolves, had no    conception of what really happened    to.  her that night at Barthelemy's house.  Shc had looked upon the little game  as a^ mere frolic, a far away imitation  of similarly naughty things at Monte  Carlo  or  Boulogne, and  Hilda    had  done nothing to disturb her thought"*,  on the malft-r.    But when if came to  telling hcr���������that was a vastly different thing. it-  She  went round  to  Curzon  Street  that   afternoon,   still   considering  her  plans  and methods.    She  knew  that  in   spite, of  everything,     Letty,    like  George, had a   certain  stubborn will  which it might not bc very easy to  .subdue.    And she had no desire, now  that the affair had reached its  critical point, to cither frighten, or bully,  or openly   coerce    an    acquaintance  who  might    prove    both   useful  and  valuable in the future.    Letty was a  moneyed   woman���������a  much    moneyed  woman���������and Hilda Tressingham had  made it a strict rule of life never to  quarrel with folk who are in possession of the goods of this world.   Shc  must uso sonic tact���������a good deal of  t:cl���������in dealing with/ young Mrs. Ellington.    Nevertheless, the thing had  got   to   be   done,   and# she   might -as  veil  set about doing it.  "I saw von Roon this morning,"  shc observed casually as she and  Letty  were closeted together.  "Y-rs?" Paid Letty, apparently not  particularly interested.  "He has been on thc continent���������  Hoivburg���������gitting some of the fat  off him. Of courso, he's spent all his  n.ady money."  Letty looked her indifference to  the state of von Noon's finances.  "Oh!" slie said blankly.  "Ami lie nave nn: a hinli thai he  thought it was time we paid up our  lilth: di-l'f: io hiin," continued Hilda, -\v':iug hi:r li<*'sl������"������js closely.

"Good heavens!  ���������whv,  Ellington will bc disgraced."  ''What for?" asked Letty. "Sticking up for his wife?"  Hilda rose.  "Oh, well, there's your signature  to the I.O.U!" she said. "You can't  deny if"  "I don't deny it," answered Lettjf.  "But I deny thafc I owe Mr. von  Roon five hundred pounds. People  like us who have made, our money,  don't throw if about. As I say, I'd  better telk George all about it and  leave him to settle with Mr. von  Roon. He'll know exactly wfoat to  do." '.-;'-'  Hilda felt secretly amazed at this  show of surprising resolution. She  looked at Letty as if she had never  met her before.  "Oh, 'well, of course." hse said, "if  it comes to that Mr. Von Roon, being a gentleman, will immediately  tear up your I.O.U'.~~ It is, of course  only a debt of honor."  "Which was never incurred," said  Letty-quietly.  Hilda went away, conscious that  she had failed.! The truth was that  she had failed to comprehend young  Mrs. Ellington. Several generations  of trading and money-making had  gone to the manufacture of Letty.  She was not going to hand over five  hundred pounds without reason. And  she had a greater appreciation of a  tradesman's bill than - she had of  what Mrs. * Tressingham called a  debt of honor.  Still, something had to    be    done;  and   she  must  do   it   quickly.       One  thing was  certain���������L-ctty-; must  not  tell her husband of this matter.    So  iit^an  hour's  time,   Hilda  went  back  to Hartsdale House, and finding Let-  -ty. still .......alone,    . produced:y another  crumpled scrap of paper.  "There is your I.O.U.," she said.  "Of course, under the circumstances;  Mr. von Roon returns it to you.    So  that's the end of that."  "Scarcely,"   said   Letty.     She,   too,  produced a "-slip of*" paper. "I owe  Mr. von Roon���������or somebody���������five  hundred sixpences. That's twelve  pounds teri.~ There's a check for' it  -���������������iade payable to bearer. As you.  had the I.O.U., you'll vake ibisi  won't you?" e        ***  Hilda gave young Mrs. Ullingtcn  a look, and walked out of the room  and the house. And yet, slie said to  herself, she had had all the worst of  the reckoning day. '  (To Bc Continued.)

Canada Now Handing  The Torch to U. S.  Present Conflict Not a War But   a  Crusade, Says a Canadian  Cessation of the world war at this  time would * mean the -\$*aste of all  that nations have given to defeat  Germany. Rev. Dr. Bruce Taylor,  principal - of Queen's University, and  former chaplain of the 42nd Canadian  Highlanders, declare^ at thc final  session at Philadelphia of the conference of college and university representatives and the university section of the committee of engineering and education of the .advisory  commission of the council of national defence.      '*  "Canada is now handing the. torch  to the United States," said Dr. Taylor, after describing his experiences  on the European battlefronts. ."The  present conflict is no ordinary* war,  but a crusade, and the United States  must give all it has, for wc are almost spent."  The speaker deplored the frightful  losses among college men- who, he  said, "were sent from Canada merely  to .stop-a gap and die obscured, with  their technical training of no avail."  "But they served -their purpose,"  he added, "for they stopped the first  German rush."

The Review isn't holidaying  next week exactly for the purpose  of blowing in its "subsidy."

Some people think that Billy  Sunday should be given a medal  for saving more souls than any  man in Atnerioa. Others, however, are in favor of giving the  medal to Henry Ford, on the  grounds that he has been responsible for shaking hell out of more  people than any man livirg.  Apparently it is a toss up between  them.  Hats off to Sam Bysouth and  the other Sirdar Unionists.

They don't  treat you better, feed you as well,  or sleep you any more comfortably  any where in B.C. than at Hotel  Bysouth, Sirdar. And the charges  are widest indeed.  And you won't forget that last  week we told you there was no  hope for the Laurierites. When  it comes to prognosticating genuine  Liberal opinion The Rfview niust  be given credit for saner judgment  than most of the members of the  Valley Liberal executive at any  rate. . And notwithstanding every  statement to the contrary by interested parties, there's a reason.  It was a famous victory, but now  its all over let's forget it at least  long enough to have the time-honored Merry Christmas. The new  year can't help but go right with  such a galaxy of Liberals and Conservatives running affairs jointly.  Is there any  Meat in the  House?

The showing  in the vegetoble section was almost as gratifying as the handsome way they did things in the  strawberry belt.  P  BURNS  & GO., Ltd.  The Unionists got 18 out of the  21 votes cast at Wynndel, and one  of the three missing was for  Austin. At this poll, too, not a  solitary citizen could be found to  act as Laurierite scrutineer, a rush  order having to be sent to Creston  for the gentleman who acted.  There was no doubt as to how  the Valley was going after the  voting at the Auditorium was  announced. The best the Unionists looked for there was an even  break. When a majority of 22  for Green was announced everybody knew  the country' was safe.  The best evidence to show that  Laurier proved a frost outside tho  province of Quebec is shown by tho  returns.

The worst was feared for Mayor  Daly of Sirdar, who had almost  collapsed before the J?olls closed.  However, t-he ministrations of R.  1BE. Ross,, and, Rastus, Wasson seem  to have sufficed. But had Billy  Cameron or Tom Caven been at  Sirdar for the night there would  have been some casualties to report, we fear.  Wynndel's landslide to Unionism  was in every sense fitting. No  community in Canada has given  more liberally of her manhood���������  nor in no centre have; more men  made the supreme sacrifice than  here���������and in coutributions to  every patriotic effort Wynndel's  showing has been equally creditable.

JLftS-  "M  (Published by authority of Director of Public Information,  Ottawa.)  Hon. Mr. Justice Duff gave judgment on December  6th, in the first test case brought before him, as Central  \ppeal Judge (tbe final court of appeal), for the exemption of a farmer. The anneal was made bv W. H. Rown-  *   at v  tree in respect of his son, W* J* R������wntree? from the  decision, of Local Tribunal, Ontario, No. 421, whicli  refused a claim for exemption. The son was stated to  be an experienced farm hand, who had been working  on the farm continuously for the past seven years, and  ever since leaving school. He lives and works with his  father, who owns a farm of 150 acres near Weston,  Ontario. With the exception of a younger brother, he  is the only male help of the father on the farm. The  father is a man of advanced years.  In granting the man exemption "until he ceases to  be employed in agricultural labor," Mr. Justice Duff   Zmm.  ������aiu.  tt*  ������������r  ������i  'The Military Service Act does not deal with the  subject of the exemption of persons engaged in the agricultural industry; and the question which it is my duty  to decide is whether the applicant being and having  been, as above mentioned, habitually and effectively engaged in agriculture and in labor essential to the carry*  ing on of agricultural production, ought to be exempted  under the provisions of the Military Service Act.  'These two propositions are indisputable:  (1) In order that the military power of the allies  may be adequately sustained, it is essential that in this  country and under the present conditions, there  should be no diminution in agricultural production.  "(2)  The supply of competent labor available,for  .he purpose of agricultural production is not abundant,  out actually is deficient. - - &Mi:������M$1������.  v ......vv- . -   -  *    0fr������������pBm  "The proper conclusion appears to be that the applicant, a competent person, who had been habitually  and effectively engaged in labor essential to such pro-;::-:';���������-;���������-  duction, ought not to be withdrawn from it. ft?  "It is perhaps unnecessary to say that such exemptions are not granted as concessions on account of personal hardship, ������till less as a favor to a class. The sole;  ground of them is that the national interest is the better  served by keeping these men at home. The supreme  necessity (upon the existence of which, ao its preamble  shows, this policy of the Military Service Act is founded) that leads the State to take men by compulsion and  put them in the fighting line requires that men shall be  kept at home who are engaged in work essential to enable the State to maintain the full efficiency of the com- v  hftant forces, and whose places cannot be taken by  others not within the class called out,"  Ottawa, Dee* 8,1917.

Canyon City Lumbar Company  LIMITED  There was a "fair*" turnout at" ^the  annual meeting of the Oreston -Valley  Branch of the Canadian ,Patriotic  Fund in the Auditorium on Friday,  oyer the deliberations of which Pre"-  sident H. Lyne presided, the Creston  orchestra also being in attendance to  liven up the opening proceedings a  hit. ���������  After Jbhe minutes of the last annual  meeting ?tiad been adopted as read,  the president very briefly.outlined the  operations of the organization for the  twelve months ending November  80th. as well as presenting some facts  'and figurps dealing with the work  done and the funds raised and disbursed over the wholeof the province.  C. G. Bennett,   secretary treasurer,  presented    the financial    statement  which showed that^for 1917 a total of  $2,255 had been guaranteed   the Fund  from all points in the Valley.    Of thin  amount $1,875 had been paid in to  date.   $179  has   been  written   off ������s  uncollectible, leaving a matter of $220  still   owing.    In     addition     to    the  amounts paid   on  1917 pledges there  has been collected $151  of 1916 dues  which came ir this year as well.    And  this, along with the $10 made   at the  whist drive held in  connection  with  the 1916 annual meeting brings the  year's grand total intake up to $2,917.  There is just one item   of expense  and that is a total of $8.01 for postage  and stationery,  while the balance of  $2,019 has been duly forward ed to the  .provincial headquarters at   Victoria.  |The treasurer's   statement has   been  I audited by Messrs.   Ebbutt and Hamilton and certified correct.  For the year closed, of the $2,009  paid into the proyincial coffers, exactly $1,806 of it has.come back to  Creston Valley, the latter amount  being disbursed amongst the dependants of the fund in this section. ..;At  one time ten families, with 38 children entitled to help from "the fund were  being assisted; Had the Forestry  Draft left here earlier in the year tha  statement, which as presented shows  a surplus of $103. would really show  that theJValley had had paid back to  it somewhat more than local residents  had paid in to the fund.  To' signify ������Keif appreciation of the  good work d6ne by the officers in, the  year past they were ail re-eiected by  acclamation���������the second time they  haye been so honored.

For the three years the Patriotic  Fund has been in operation here a  grand total of $4,250 has been paid in.  It should also be noted that for tbe  first year no organized effort was  made to seoiire individual contributions, and that for 1915 only about  $325 was raised.  At the close of the annual meeting  a whist drive was staged that produced about $10 of revenue for tho  fund. There were about 15 tables of  players and the prizes were won hy  Mrs. W, P., Stark and W. Long.  Slipper was served after cards, and  after the lunch the -Creston orchestra  furnished music for dancing, which  lasted until about 2.30, the proceeds  of the latter going to the orchestra,  of course.  Fines collected at Cranbrook police  court last month totalled $325. 20  cases were handled.  -W. W.

Mr.< Lloyd  George is authority for the statement. The number destroyed in 1916  is not known, but it is believed to  be approximately 75 under-water vessels. Assuming this to be correct,  Germany has already lost this year  no fewer than 150 U-boats or at the  rate of about four a week. If this  be so it is no wonder that the loss  of steamers through the activities of  Huu pirates h:ts been so greatly reduced. At present the loss per week  in tonnage is less than one-third of  what it was in April last, when the  U-boat campaign was at its height.���������  Vancouver  World.

The stomach fails, for  some reason, to digest food properly. Then the system languishes and  the nerves become exhausted in  striving to continue their work. Impure blood also causes nerve troubles, but frequently it is in the stomach where the mischief starts. As  the nourishment is carried to the  nerves by the blood, it will be seen  what an important connection exists  between the stomach; the nerves and  the blood, and how such troubles as  nervous headaches, nervous dyspepsia and insomnia may begin.  In such cases relief is easily obtainable by means of Dr. Williams1'  Pink Pills. These pills replenish the  blood with the food elements on  which the nerves thrive; at the same  time they exercise a tonic influence  on the digestive organs, enabling the  system to derive nourishment from  the food .taken. By this perfectly  natural process nervous ills are steadily dispelled by Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. If you are suffering from  nerves, or require a blood-making  tonic, give these pills a fair trial, and  see how speedily the best of health  will be yours.  -You can get these ��������� pills through  any dealer in medicine, or by mail  at 50 cents a box or six boxes for  $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  mm~\m<  1 ��������� ������������������m   -11.J���������.������������������������������������  Ration Must Last Eleven Days  ^Thc Dutch minister of agriculture  has decided that thc bread ration of  2,800 grammes per head must suffice  for eleven days after September 2.

Future Provision  For Sick Soldiers  Military Medical Attention   Assured  Men Who Suffer Relapse  From War Injuries  _ The government has made provision so that an}r man who suffers a  recurrence^ of a disability due to  army service can receive free treatment from a military ,/medicai officer.  If his condition requires hospital  care he can be reattested and replaced on pay and' allowances, until  he has been put in. shape again.  The military hospital commission  makes this statement ��������� to correct the  impression which seems to have  gained circulation, that a discharged  soldier can go to a medical practitioner as a civilian and receive-treatment, or enter a hospital as a civilian and then forward the bill to the  government for' payment.

LIFT A CORN  OFF WITHOUT PAIN I  1  Cincinnati man tells how to dry  up a corn or callus so it  lifts off with fingers.  You corn-pestered men and women  need suffer ho longer. Wear the shoes  that nearly killed you before, says  this Cincinnati authority, because *a  few drops of freezone applied directly  on a ��������� tender, aching corn or callus,  stops soreness at once and soon the  corn or hardened callus loosens so it  can be lifted off, root and all, without pain.  A small bottle of freezone costs  very little at any drug store, but will  positively take off every hafd or soft  corn or a callus. This should be tried,  as it is inexpensive and is said not to  irritate the surrounding  skin.  IF your druggist hasn't any freezone  tell him to get a small bottle for you  from his wholesale drug house, it is  fine stuff and acts like a charm every  time.  Indians in-Northland  Indians in the Northland arc more  prosperous and healthy than they  were years ago. During 1917 thc  Indian commissioner received several reports from sub-inspectors in the  northern wilds. Practically no sickness and no sign of shortage of  food was noted.

Canada    deserves   unstinted  praise for its part in the present war,  and despite    the   Jarge    number    of,  cripples on the streets of the cities,"  courage and purpose   are at   a high  pitch.   The Canadians are game. And  their loyalty to  the ; home    government  is   among   the   marvels   of   the  time.    Any suggestion of faltering in  thai loyalty appears to be unknown  in the Dominion of Canada.   The primary reason for this is riot the un-.  doubted excellence    of the   -goyernf  ment of Great Britairiybut in.the fact  that the Canadiait'people arc left to  -manage their own affairs. "We. arc  thc freest people on earth," is an expression one frequently    hears   from i  lhc lips of men who know what the  other governments arc. ..As  to    the  provinces, they remind one    of    the  states of this  country, but they ap-_  pear to havc  their local affairs    almost exclusively in their own hands.

Many    are  coming''to stay, as one knows from  the migration    out    of    thc    United  States.  Thc great potencies are the quality  of  thc   English  race,  particularly  as  expressed in British rule, an    enterprising government of the Dominion  itself and    the    railroad    companies,  notably the Canadian Pacific, which,  to use its own expression, "spans thc  i-ailli"  with  ils    eighteen    thousand  miles  of  road  and  its  many steamships.    These forces act in    concert  und find lines of effort in all sorts of  subordinate departments and bureaus  which havc  in  hand  irrigation,    the  opening  of new areas,    colonization  and enlistment of capital.    Study of  thc whole is dominant, for thc pco-  .plc  .sceni  lo havc grasped- the    idea  that  th-.ii*   own   individual   prosperity  i* involved in lhe common weal. Thc  banking    system is one of the most  po\*vCifuI  uitans  of    promotion    and  safeguards against misfortune. Americans have admired this system these  uiany yc,u*s and sonic  of its principals* avo embodied in our federal reserve pl.ui.    These banks    appear to  gel  closer lo  the people  than  those  ol  other countries.    A liberal policy  i.s   followed  in   the  establishment   of  branch bank.s.      One finds hardly a  hamlet  without  a  representative    of  one of thor.j*s well known institution'*,  usually housed in  a    building   com-  ���������    tnanditi};   respect by  ils  architecture,  though all about il; may bc the crudc-  ncss of a new country.   Thc greatest  advantafjc of thi-; branch  system over that of individual institutions such  as*weshavc in the United States-is in  thc name and the known solvency of  the parent institution.  Wiih .Chicago men of ufuii'.s, particularly those of thc hoard of trade,  thc lime haa long gone by "for con-  Hidering Canada so boronl as to hc  foiblddtUK or an uninviting Acid for  enterprise, The wheat of CAnada in  among the best rained in the world,  nnd land eleven hundred miles north  of tin's city yield the cereal liberally.  Thc mention of, the fifty-ninth parallel lo one familiar wiih the wheal  tiadc does not chill hiin. Then there  arc climatic' conditiona  which (-often  temperature in areas far north.  ���������" In  Vancouver temperatures as low as 15  in midwinter rarely occur, and    that  city  arid its neighbor,    Victoria,"   as  places o������/residence are extremely inviting.   Far inland the chinook conies  in  Avinter tp ease .the  cold weather.  We, therefore, should not^ apply the  Medicine Hat test to everything    in  the Dominion.    One cannot yet say  how great is the area of arable Jand  in the Dominion, for there are large  sections which  have not    yet    been  opened and the quality of which is a  rriafter for further investigation. The  statement has been made that of the  '3,700,000 square miles of Canada only  440,000 square miles is  fit for farming.    This, however, excludes grazing  lands and other areas which will unquestionably,   come ..Jn      later      on.  Broadly; speaking,  the  farther  north  the locality the shorter the    season,  but the rapidity of growth is something astonishing, unless one remembers   that   18  hours   of   daylight   has  more effect on a plant than 10 or 12  hours.  #~!���������ll���������^S������.

A London Times editorial headed  "Futile peace schemes" contains the  following passages. "There is not the  slightest intention or the slightest  wish on either side of the Atlantic  to accept mediation. The nations  opposed to Germany know well what  they arc fighting, for. They mean to  utterly end the system which forced  war Von a peace-loving', -world .;. and  which as they clearly perceive would  infallibly lead to a renewal of the  conflict upon a scale still more "awful  Were it not now torn up by the  roots. These roots are still deep in  the minds of the militarist classes of  Central Europe and their deluded  dupes. The war, Tirpitz said, must  prove that England has not beaten  Germany. The war, the allies reply  with-one accord, must prove past all  question of doubt that thei. alliance  has beaten Germany. There is no  place for a compromise, or the good  offices of mediation. The choice to  both sides is surrender or defeat.  There can be no half-way house.  .-.-s";  The-followm& article, contributed  by RowlandVHill from' war corries--;  pdhderits' headquarters, pittance, Ppis  issued by the militia department:**  "Canada's part in  -the waris not  confined by any means to the splendid troopi under General Xtirrie, now  beleaguering Lens.

The direct  cause may be overwork, worry or  mental anxiety; but the real  source of trouble is debility of  tho nerve centres.  The brain is the "central station" of the nervous system,^ and  here is first felt any unusual  strain. Headache results, and  you are warned of the exhausted  condition of the nerve cells.  The first thought is of relief,  and too often there is formed the  habit of resorting to headache  powders or tablets, instead of  aiiviincr at the restoration of the  nervous system.
