Although the season  was a. dry one, and statistics submitted  tt> the bciard of trade go to show a  falling off in most lines, more especially apples, the Union is abie to show  increased commissions earned of .at  least $800fiver 1916, and this in spite  of the faet?tiiat iast year's^business  The output of Red Cross supplies,  made at home svs well as at- the Tu������������������-  day afternoon sewing meetings, ale tig  with donated materials and finished  work, was ��������� well maintained during  January.

For-1917 production Mr. -Blinco had  48 colonies according to the early-  spring count. He started in the busU  ness in 1911 with one colony. He had  five the following year and 86 colonies  in 1913, which grew to the even four  dozen in the intervening three years.  AH of which goes to show.vthat the  climate is not too severe for -the industry. Even in the severe winters  of 1015 and 1916 I he loss from winter  kill was only 10 per cent, and about  the only precaution taken to keep the  hives warm was the use of some  gunny sacks and tar paper.  In 1913 the first Blinco honey found  its way to market and for that year  and 1014 most of tho product sold  locally. In 15)15 some of it got to Calgary and Nelson, and tdncp then Nol-  noii and Crow points have taken all  there was to sell and: shouted for  more. In fact the pust two years the  Doukhobor factory at Brilliant would  have taken tho entire output at a yery  attractive price.  While the flavor of Oreston Valley  honey will compare more than favorably with the bust produced, it has  one diHtidvantnge, we are told.

" If we savvy the statement right the  profit for 1917 is around $1400���������$500 of  which, is carried into a contingency  loss account. Under the trimiliar  liabilities it looks good to see only a  matter of $45 due the ranchers and  only another 822 overdue the wholesalers. Those who haye a 1916 balance,  sheet by them' will note that a year  ago the rancher had several hundreds  of dollars coming to him, and the  wholesaler, too.  If under liabilities we omit the  amounts shown as share capital, und  which in the ordinary course of events  are really. not liabilities at all, the  balance sheet discloses that the Union  ia pretty well clear of allencumbrances  saye the mortgage loan of $1000 on the  real estate. Aud to olFaefc this there  is cash in bank of almost $500, as well  as a few other promising .inaett?.

Frank Callander who, it will be  racalled, left Creston just about two  years ago, to assume a lieutenancy in  the Royal Field Artillery in England.  The last of these letters came to hand  Isist months and cover the carouaiiyn-  ing up to November.    Lieut.  Calland-  i    Chief' et* has had at least eighteen  months  District steady   service   at   the   front,   so far  I without mishap,   and   only   a   short  hospital leave due to tonsolitis. At  first he found the life a great flesu-  l-eusicer but of late he does not complain of getting any where near, even,  to rank in the slim brigades  Lieut. Callander's first introduction  to the war business was at the  Somnis. * Having travelled ..about  6G00 miles for the express purpose of  joining the Royal Field Artillery, and  haying had several months training in  the weird ways of gunner, he was at  once pushed into trench mortars, or  the Suicide Club. "You never know  what   the   authorities    will   do"   he  hottest   kind   of  came the"Oppv  *va ja va      sir.

After Arras  " fighting* theoecasion  where the enemy came over the open  in thousands and thousands for almost  2000 yards, saabiGg the very finest  target a gunner could ' wish for. He  states, "I saw the whole thing from  the high ground we had captured a  few days before. Needless to say >the  enemy never reached our trenches,  and their casualties were awful."  Then came Messines.'and it was here  that they found bodies tied in bundles  of threes, evidently gois  "f.������t-.  private life is a doctor he would probably find his job iu the arniy that of  a mechanic ia a motor transport-  company." However, the lieutenant  was put into trench mortars and the  first fighting he saw was at Delville  Wood, Longaval and Guillemont���������  and it was some scrap, too. The  weather was very hot, and the smell  of rotting Mesh was something horrible.  From here he went to the Beaumont  Hummel front, and for weeks and  weeks swam about in liquid mud.  Foy a time he was on as stretcher  bearer, a job he freely admits he  woulk readily sell for- fiye cents.  After some fiye months on this sort of  service, during which he parted company with about 25 pounds of surplus  weight, but otherwise sound in wind.  and limb, he was transferred into a  regular R.F.A. battery. With this  corps he spent most of the winter, and  was in the advance on Bapamne.  He writes: *5I gofe into Bapaume  the day it was taken; and you never  saw such a sight in your life. The  fronts of ail the houses had been  systematically blown into the middle  of the street. It was not safe to  touch any souvenirs. Hun helmets,  if handled, would at. once explode, and  the Bosche had laid all sorts of traps  for us. I managed to get a silver egg  cup, but I fastened quite a long piece  of telephone wire around it and then  got around two corners before pulling  it off the shelf. However, no mysterious explosions lay beneath it and I  stiii have ,v the 4'silver egg cup [from  Bapaume,"   . .  From Bapaume the move was to  Arras, a battle Lieut. Callander will  always remember, as it was here that  he won the Military Cross���������for keeping up communication although the  battery   teas   continually under   the  NQTBCE  ������F_CANCELt&l**ON  ' v       , t?s* K������sfeRVE   c ,'.:  factory," as the saying is. He was at  IVxessines and Hill 65? for several weehs  and then the shift was Ypres for the  heavy fighting at the end of July,  where he went "over the top" with  the infantry on "spec?al work." Here  it rained for a straight week without  a let up and the Scots iu their kilts  looked like a lot of broody hens. Up  till November he was still in the same  fighting but they had succeeded in  taking Passehendeai. This latter  scrap seems to have been the most  desperate of the lot as the Huns could  always look right into the British  positions, and the British could not  possibly move by day time.  Briefly, this sums up eig-hteen  months of fighting in which time  Lieut. Callander has been hit by some  small pieces occasionally but none of  them serious enough even to draw  blood, and he is happy to find himself  still without a gold stripe on his sleeve-  The only inconvenience, in the way  of sickness, he seems to have run into, was an attack of tonsolitis. that  kept him in the hospital a few days in  November.

The first- fire in Duck Creek for  several years occurred on Sunday  afternoon when the two-story, six  roomed residence of Uri brothers burned to the ground. How the fire started is a mystery, there being no one  living in the house for the past four  months. That it started inside is  quite eviedent for no fire was noticed  till the flames burst through the roof  and it was then too late to do anything. It is reported that the house  carried insurance for $1000.
