Fruit Mar  ket, Lathbsigge, Alta,., and'  in fruit-selling circles in the Valley,  was a Creston yisitor last week������ and  while here disposed   of his ranch near  town to F.  Celli, a Coleman, Alta.,  merchant.    For the   first year in the  wholesale and retail trade Mr. Lindley states he is well    pleased   with  results.   His firm handled a considerable quantity of all lines of fruit from  Creston Valley, as well as practically  the entire crop at Boswell.    For 1918  he states prospects are splendid for  considerably  increasing    their  shipments from Valley centres.    On comparison, he states, that his firm paid  its clients eyen better prices than obtained elsewhere, and  this along with  the system of paying twice monthly,  are factors that have made the house  popular.  For 1918. Mr.  Lindley  is chock full  day night for a Red Cross social under  the auspices of the Iciest! auxiliary.  In addition to the good turnout of be-.  twesn forty and fifty the affair was  immensely enjoyed by all, and a raffle  for a hand crocheted centrepiece  donated by Mrs. Mclnnis ..brought in  $7.50 and the proceeds of the tea an-  otver $5. Mrs. McMnrtrie of Creston  was the lucky winner of the fancy  work.

If spring and early summer weather is propitious Mr. Lindley  figures there will be a splendid market tor ail the herries B.C. can grow  at splendid prices. In connection  with soft fruits he avers that the  Creston strawberries and raspberries  wese the very best to come into Leth-  bridge last year;'  The same holds good of tomatoes,  but-certainly cannot be said of plums.  These all too often came in oyer-ripe,  and with ������50 regard whatever for  packing, making it difficult to sell in  , competition with the Okanagan .and  U.S. product, all of which is put up  with   the scrupulous care given the  Mi*. Lindley'* advice to those holding potatoes is to sell as quickly as  possible. The dealers are all looking  for a slump in price and the retail  trade is so confident of it that they  are only buying In quarter-ton lots.  In spuds.the B.C. product does seem  to be a factor in southern Alberta���������  the local grown tubers being in equal  demand at just as good price.

The article below, "Perishable  Crops; Co-Operation needed for Profitable Marketing of Products," appeared in the February issue of the  Agricultural Journal, and The Review is asked to produce the same.  The writer is  J. A.* Grant- th** ni'stirie  A������ X..W .uura. E^.rfVV7 ^.^..XM.X*.V449.XrX������X4X . M.M.X4  says:  The profitable marketing of perishable crops is a man's job. The producing, packing, and grading of your,  crop is also a man's job. It seldom ..  happens that& the same man can  successfully do the dual work, as the  care and won-v of the latter operation  prevents the grower from devoting  the necessary time and attention to  study the market needs and sell his  products intelligently.  In a general way, it is safe to say  that, wherever the two parts of the  fruit game  has  been  handled by the  ssillir'/iRa!    .-^t..1^-q^     *~*1 *������    ��������� MM.,l������....S    |^..-.������>^*,    auimi&c    xixr s.^\*x*xxr ������.  profit has resulted; hence it is necessary to have an organization to meet  the dual need. Jf the British Columbia  grower could sell or turn over to his  association for sale all his produce, and  if he could give his undivided attention  to the many problems of preparing his  wares for market after it is successfully grown, he could apply all his  energies to that and have great pleasure in so doing. But after all his  struggle to bring his produce to the  marketing stage, he is often compelled  to leave his farm and waste time hunt-  ing.up a market for it. He has not  the time to get in touch with the demand, and invariably be Kelts tinder  the fair market price, which results  in a personal loss, as weli as having a  .bearing, effectv oaUie markets  The chief difficult yi however, lies in  fx.     j:      * ������.i_,.*-   *������;..'*.��������������� ..i    _.,.,.,    :_, -i.i   i.xx&  iuUi,   UllUli     IVIO   I.UUU     CiVJp     ib  mrmiiHi  l^l^t.oll, 1  Crawford,  ..Mil ������-���������  Williiim  '���������"Hi ������������������������   ������IJ"..������.II  Manuel,     Helen  a factor in the market's demand,  coming on the market at all is merely  an incident iu the day's work of a jobbing-house, and more often than not  it is a disturbing incident.  There is a need, in catering feu the ~  market, of having sufficient supply,  and this volume the jobber uinstmain-  tain, so he turns his niiention to where  this supply is assured. This leaves the  individual grower at the mercy of the  retail traders and large individual  consumers. These dealers in turn sell  as they buy, and as the jobbers require  a profit the sale to tlie retail trade,  even at the wholesale price, tends to  lower the market.  Co- Operation Bringe Results  The complaints we hear that fanners are unable to secure the cost of the  production fur their produce can be  traced by investigation to the want of  system or organization. Every non-  member of the Ioc.nl organization is a  contributing unit in his own destruction. A study of the Prairie market  bulletin issued last season ttom Vul-  gary will disclose the condition very  clearly. It will be found that in many  cases the retail prices wew lews than  those obtained hy wholesalers on given  date.  This was made possible by individual  shippers eonsigning produce direct to  the retail trade, who iii turn proceeded  lo nei.   tin-   uiuihi-i     jnii e,   linn, <i������   iur\  had nothing to lose, they invariably  featured t*uch consignments u*^i*i trade-  drawing card for their other wares.

The  belief is shared, no doubt, by a good  many others, and it would be a pleasant relief for peacefully disposed  people if all the fighting could be  restricted to the Huns and the barbarians. But if the Huns and the  barbarians refuse to restrict the  fighting to themselves, what then?  Is the rest of thc world to become  barbarian rather than fight the barbarians? Many of those, perhaps  tho great mass of them, who are  fighting the Hun and thc barbarian  today have no love for fighting- for  its own sake, but they love the  cause for which they are fighting,  and they have no doubt as to the  necessity    for    fighting.���������Woodstock  ARE YOU SATIWdtiLi ' v|  With your work, with your business? 3  Ih there promotion, ahead of you ? ������  Men of energy, with salesmanship ability      M  will find it to their advantage to write to���������      s  ��������� GV^ui-O 23  TUP   I7Y*f*!7I������Iffc������   II5J7I?

Not only must Germany be  prevented from winning the war, but  we must win it. A* drawn battle, a  return to the status quo ante, will as  surely impose militarism on the  United States as will a German victory.

"Time is everything," said Nelson; "five minutes  makes a difference between a victory and a defeat."  Of all the  theatres  or the  war the  North Sea is the most important, for  it is closed against the Germans, and  this   great  blockade   constitutes     the  main  reason  for her    protest.       She  rebels against  British  sea supremacy  and therefore claims "freedom of the  seas,"   though   her  action   is     an  endeavor to qualify to be thc tyrant of  them.

Day and night, in every weather, our patrols are at work, and the  records  of heroism  at  sea  in    these  services  have  never been   surpassed.  Mercantile marine  trawlers,  destroyer flotillas, patrol boats, and air services  have combined  to  exercise   an  activity which has never been relaxed,  and they  have  been   engaged   in  countless-combats.     It   is   sometimes  wondered  why the  grand  licet   does  not take aggressive action, but naval  history    shows    thai to attack coast  defences  is   not   the   proper   or   even  the  permissible  work    of    warships,  and   this  is   still   less   possible     now  .i i  iuf4IU    .tliuw    ui-,    icailj  selves at any  instant.

The  early part of January  some  of the  citizens from across   the  river  had  occasion to attend a ni^lit meet-in**  iu town.    The   ferryman aud   also  his assistant, so the story goes, also  wished to be   present  at the same  gathering,    with   the   result   that  ferry users   were   notified that the  ferry'would not operate after seven  o'clock on the evening in question.  As  conditions  in  every  respect  were ideal for running the ferry on  this   occasion   the  aforementioned  residents did   not   take   kindly   to  having to spend the night in town  and  pay board   and   lodging   for  themselves and teams���������a matter of  at least 83 for each tearaowner.  To make a test ca&e of it tlie  expense bill of one of tlie gentlemen  was sent the minister of public  works, along with an explanation  of the matter. The reply thereto  is illuminating. Briefly stated it  reads: ''Your claim cannot be  ���������*nrerrainod by r.riin department/, in  view of the fact that the ferry at  the Reclamation Farm is a free  ferry, and run on no regular  schedule."  While those directly interested  are at a loss to know why a  utility that gets tho man in charge  ���������aiiGO a .your taioi-iu be Htyleu u  "free" ferry, their greater   concern  will yield $5,276  You may recollect that at the  school meeting last year a total of  $4,500 only was voted. And it will  do no harm to recall that at the  meeeting the trustees made it clear  that it was necessary to vote this  sum because the authorities at  Victoria would only supply 75 per  cent, of the amount voted, or  $3,375, which would be ample for  school purposes this year, with  some back taxes that seemed likely  to be available as well.  From these figures it will be  noticed that while only $3600 was  actually needed, $4500 had to be  asked for;- and on top of this a rate  has been struck that will yield  $5,276���������$700 more than requested.  Of course, out of this must be  allowed something for the" 10 per  cent, allowed on rates paid before  July 1st, but even reckoning that  all hands pay up by that date $527  would take care of all the discounts,  leaving a net surplus of almost  $300 above the $4,500 that has to  be asked for. Assuming ail taxes  are liquidated, the assessor will net  almost $4,800. Aud the actual  cash needed for school purposes  $3,600. Admitting all these things  ratepayers in Oreston School  District are   taxed   to the   time  of  Sit 1 9.00   nnn Appogafil ir  In passing it is only fair to state  that this $300 item is quite in  order���������it is a 6 per cent, levy on  taxes which are in arrears, Assessor  Jarvis informs. All of which  seems to mean that the fellow who  pays his school rates within the  year is being fined 6 per cent, because some other fellows fail to pay  their school dues. But this is  beside the question we are endeavoring to argue.  For 1917, too, you will readily  recall your general taxes, plus the  surtax, also aggregated 1 per  cent., or 10 mills. On this same  $527,635 assessment Creston sohool  district alone whacked up another  $5,276, less the 10 per cont. For  all other districts in Creston Valley  certainly an equal amount was  rained, making Hay $10,000 all told.  Foi 1018 tho samo figures hold  good, bringing the total up to  $20,000.  r    .    . , *      .,  . ,-w-   -. ,     , ., ��������� , v ,.     ...

They protect the army fighting in the lower Piave region which  is gridironed with streams and canals. They are generally used for  scouting the Ad.iatic and Mediterranean, but nowadays it is not unus-  ' ual to see them attacking the enemy at some advanced post where the  Austro-German line touches a river  or canal. Their great advantage is in  their small size and great speed,  which enables them to surprise thc  enemy, who does not expect them to  take part in a land battle.  Once some of them attacked a  column    of    Hungarians      marching  1 along the banks of a canal and put  it to flight. At another time" a  launch opened fire on a detachment  of cyclists, killing and wounding  many.  While thc Italian army was reorganizing itself on the present line  of battle, these little craft indefati-  gably steamed up and down the  Piave, engaging thc best shots of  General Boroevic's army, who were  greatly hampering the operations of  the Italian troops. These launches  for several" days bore the brunt of  the  Italian  defence.  No Need to Risfa  Try  Sloan's   Liniment and  see  bow quickly the swelling ia reduced   |  and the pais disappears.
