Eastern Canada's ever-increasing  shortage in small fruits production is  compelling canning factory operators  to look to B.C. points for locations in  order to keep up with the demands on  them for this class of 're *ds.  The latest of these to pick upon  Creston as a likely-looking location is  Grahams' Limited, whose head office  is at Belleville, Ontario, and who since  the war broke out, have been running  eyaporating plants at both Vernon  and Grand Forks, though we are sure  they were in business at the latter  centre last season. Writing to the  Creston Branch ot the Bank of Commerce under date of January 24th, the  firm states:  "We are thinking of going into the  jam business in British Columbia, and  would be obliged if you would hand  this communication to the Board of  Trade, town council, or some representative body that will give us reliable information on the' following  points:  "What quantities of raspberries,  strawberries black currants and  apples, are available for deliyery in  Oreston by teius.  "What ijuatitiiiEes are available by  boat, and what would the freight on  these goods be to Creston ? "What  price can fuel be obtained at, both  cord wood and coal, and is there any  electric power available ? Would the  town grant a free site where a railway  .siding could bs lastaltsd ?  Are there any boilers available from  125 to 175 horsepower ? Can labor be  obtained easily; for example women,  and boys and girls for hulling strawberries. We would like to haye what  information^ you ean get on these  points as quickly as poss^&hvand very  "Yours truly,  "GRAHAMS LIMITED."             _         __.U~->    -+1* s*  cy *>IlIimj^      nao    eia     o*mc:aiic     trijvii     esse;  scoring was totalled up, ihe first prizes  going to Mr. and Mrs. J.

Dancing also followed the lunch on  this occasion^ and the proyerbml good  time that obtains when Mr. and Mrs.  Cotterill entertain is reported by all  the guests.  Mrs. Markwick of Medicine Hat and  Mrs. T. Goodwin were guests of Mrs.  R. Dodds the fore part of the week.  The Old Country mail on Monday  brought Henry Hamilton word that  his son, Pte. D. W. Hamilton, who  was severely wounded in the fighiing  in France in October, and has since  been laid up in a hospital in that  country, has recovered sufficiently to  be'removed to England, where he arrived on January 13th, and is at St.  Mary's Hospital, London. This is a  civilian hospital and he writes that  he is getting tip top attention and  getting along fine, though it is doubtful if he will be fit for active service  for a long time.  acv. ������y.

Kootenay Fiftts reclamation has  been considerably in the public eye  the past week, and the turn affairs  are taking in the matter makes it  look more than likel'*3' that- the  authorities at Victoria will get busy  this season on such opwutiatas ���������+������ ������vi*e  still necessary before it can be definitely stated whether total reclamation is  feasible and at what cost.  . A despatch from Victoria on Friday  contained the information that the  Land Settlement Board would most  like!"*? tiave a isjjJHoa dollars to. spend  this year on its programme of agricultural encouragement and development, For the present it would seem  the intention is to largely discontinue  loaning money, direct to farmers.  The board hopes to be able to announce a number of purchases during  the coming spring. In addition, of  course, development will be carried  on upon Crown lands where they are  adjacent to transportation and suitable for farm purposes. It is planned  to subdivide and sell on long-term  payments, assistance also being.given  settlers where they desire funds for  fencing, building or the purchase of  stock or machinery.  It is understood that the board's intention is to obtain areas of land in  various parts of the province so as  to be able to offer the intending settler a choice of soil and climate. Investigation of various tracts have already been made  by  board members.  Among those were the Sumas Lake  flood bottom, on" which engineers are  now reporting, and the property of the  Southern Okanagan Land Company, a  30,000-acre tract south of Penticton.  Consideration was also given the flood  lo.nd near   Creston on  the Kootenay  flats.  The giyingout of this  information  by Hon. John Oliver, minister of  agriculture,  had   the happy effect of  waking up the Provincial Groat War  Voterans Association to the possibility  that the government had something  afoot to provide lands for a roturnod  uoldier.s    colony    farm,    and    David  Loughman, president of tho organization, immediately issued  a statemont  to the oflcct that tho soldiers bo consulted before any land purchases wove  made for their bunofit.  Mr.  Loughman  w.nit further than  this  oven,   stating    that   the    War  Voterans   had    been   discussing    the  matter ami   were  (-ouviuccii   tliaL thu  Kootenay Flats at OroHton, wore they  drained,   would   be tho best possible  location lor a sarin colony   oi soltiiein, j 1st Header* i.iass  and asked that tlio provincial goyoin-  nu'tit make   it!! posutble   h.'*.'*tw  lo Hud  out if reclamation wore possible before  making any   flnal   arrangement,!)   to  Im*)'(inure of tho iioblinrn.

(Continued.)  CHAPTER XX.V.  The Secret Document  It  was  an   easy  thing,*  for    George]  Islington  to  say  that he  had    done  with Mrs. Tressingham, but in saying  it he forgot  that    Mrs.  Tressingnam  had  not,  perhaps,     quite  clone     with  him.    To the. mind of that astute and  designing lady,  the  adventure  of  the  eventful  night   at   Hartsdale    House,  and  especially   that  part  of  it  which  related to  thc    meeting    with     Miss  Marcia   Ellington,     suggested     many  possibilities, aud between the time of  her   leaving   George     Ellington     and  neon,   wher;   she   went     to     call     on  Otto  von   Roon,  she had    conceived  more   eventualities   than     her   victim  could have thought it possible for thc j  imagination of man to compass.

Loughm.an,  president of the provincial Great  War Veterans Association, issued  a statement that the association  were taken strongly with the  Kootenay Flats location, and that  the government would be urged to  investigate it tnoroughly and report thereon.  The Review is in receipt of a  letter from Mr. Loughmau asking  for all possible information on  Kootenay Flats. He points out  that property such as this is what  the men are after. They want to  be near civilization on land that  lends itself to the community  system of farming, ten to twenty  acre tracts preferred.  Of the three properties mentioned certainly the Kootenay Valley  is the likliest of the lot. The  Sumas prairie has not the fertility  of the local lands, has not as good  a location commercially, and aa  part of them are privately owned  tho area available is limited. The  Penticton lands are irrigated, and  have not the naturally advantageous situation in any respect that  our Valley lands possess.  With 80,000 acres of Kootenay  Klats at its disposal, and every  foot, of which it owns, the government could devote half of it to the  soldi ere arid find ready sale for the  balance we fancy, at a price that  would go a long way toward paying the cost of reclaiming it���������half  of which charge, don't forget, the  ������������������ait li'irit !'������������������! in !/!:'ho will readily  asHimie.

must import not less than 45O,0iK),(KM

Thc United States today Iras not
one bushel more, than would be required for normal consumption in
that country, and Canada has only a
surplus  of   110,000,000  bushels.
There is wheat in Argentina, ^ in
Australia, in New Zealand, but without more shipping it cannot be moved. North America must supply almost the entire wheat needs of the
allies at least for thc next three or
four months. The allied na ions in
Europe had completely exhausted all
accessible reserves when thc 1917
crop became available. Unfortunately the new harvest of France was
less than half the production of a
normal year before the war. The
Italian crop was also much below
the average. Both these countries
have required larger amounts of
foodstuffs from this continent than
was anticipated and their needs will
The geographical position of Canada and thc United States in relation to thc allies makes it imperative
that this continent, should provide
thc food which must be forthcoming
during thc next few months. Let us
then clearly understand the situation.
Thc   essentials   are:
1. The allies must be  fed.
2. They have, in their own countries only a fraction of thc food required for their own people.
3. Until thc shipping shortage is
relieved several months hence, the
allies must depend upon Canada and
the United States to make up their
deficiency of essential food supplies,
including wheat.
4. Canada and the United States
can only spare the needed supplies
by reducing their own consumption
by_ at^ least 20 per cent.
5. If Canada and thc United
States should fail to -make up the allies' deficiency of food, thc soldiers
would have to go short and the
whole allied cause might be endangered.
6. Individual effort, individual saving of individual spoonsful of flour,
individual economy in thc. use of
bread and flour and individual substitution of other cereals for wheat
alone can save the situation and give
to thc men at the front tlie support
���which thev must have.

Camphor is being grown iu Florida. Since, thc outbreak nf the war,
it has been difficult to procure camphor from Formosa, from which
place the previous supply had almost
entirely conic. There are alrcady

the growing of this tree, which, it
has been proven, grows well in Florida. The largest plantation is reported to be the Statsuina plantation

stances  an  entire  regiment.
The full value of thc machine gun
was apparently appreciated by Ger-
many before the war began to a
much greater extent than by 0.113- ��f
tlie otticr European armies. With
the outbreak of hostilities each active and reserve regiment of the
German army had six machine guns
with ample in reserve to replace losses.
Since then Germany has maintained a steady program of increase in
their number. Towards the end of
1914 Germany had undertaken to
equip . every unit engaged on the
front with" machine guns.
Jn 1915 thc number of these io
each regiment had been increased
from six to nine. A little later the
number was again increased  to  12.
Following ihe- French attack in
Champagne of ooptcmber, 1915, every German battalion was equipped
with si:< machine guns each, increasing thus the total of each 'regiment
to  18.
Now Germany is rapidly completing a program that will give cacli
regiment 24 machine guns.
Only one protection can be offered thc infantrymen against the thousands and hundreds of thousands of
losses that these, guns can inflict and
that is an artillery preparation exceeding anything which the present
war has yet developed. Before in-
Tautrymen leap uvcr the ircnehes
thousands of cannon must rain down
hundreds of thousands of shells on
every inch of ground to be attacked
until not a single spot has escaped
where a machine gun might remain

but must be of an intensity to destroy steel and concrete shelters,
yards below the surface. A single
macuine gun left intact in one. of
these shelters can be mounted to
thc surface after the infantry had
left its trenches and inflict hundreds
if not thousands of losses.
With the artillery preparation
which the French have perfected
they have demonstrated that it. is
mathematically possible to wipe out
every machine gun before a single
infantrymen   shows   his  head.
With the French method and with
sufficient guns and shells, American
infantry can face the German's new
machine gun couceiration with
practical immunity.
