When the children were  out for recess that morning the school  door became locked���������ho securely so  that neither teacher nor pupils could  got it open nohow. The umallcr  pupils. however, were able to make  an entrance through one of the window**, but two or three of the larger  ones had a half-holiday. Trustee Carr  was appraiHod of the mixtip and had  the door working as usual the same  afternoon.  referred to & coniinittee composed of  F. H, Jackson, Dr. Henderson and C.  Moore to go into with Mr. Constable,  and such additions or amendments as  they will make will be accepted as the  board's views, the short time between  the meeting and the delegate's leaying  making it impossible to call another  meeting of the board to go finally into  the matter.  The arrival of the nest overseas  raaii at Creston is awaited with interest. Members of the local Forestry  Draft all advised that they expected  to be through with operations at the  spot in France they have worked since  their arrival there about nine months  ago, and to be on the move by the  end of January. Their place of transfer is what arouses curiosity as there  haye been all sorts of rumors concerning it���������includin1" & shift to Italy  as well as a report that those physically fit are to ba drafted for trench  fighting.  The service in the trenches story is  not taken seriously, as it is officially  stated that all the Forestry companies  are under strength owing to the  difficulty of getting reinforcements.  Early in 1917 it is stated that the  Canadians were turning out 20 per  cent, of the lumber used by the  armies; they are now producing 70  per cent., and this iu face of that supplies from other sources have greatly  increased. .  The work  of producing  fuel   wood-  for the men in the front areas is alsj.������  undertaken   by   the    forestry -corps.  This   wood  is taken  io thp fighting  units by motor lorries.    Letters from  Creston men indicate that  this latttu-  feature   is correct  but  they  are  not  allowed   to  give   details.    It    is also  borne out  in  recent despatches from  overseas that teli of officers  and men  ol  the forestry  corps being given a ���������  French   decor-iiton  "for devotion   to**  ...

Mr. Constable was favored with a  place on both the credentials and  resolutions committees, and in the  latter capacity succeeded in getting  favorabh������ consideration for three of  the four resolutions sent in from the  Creston board. The one exception  was the resolution dealing with the  route of tho trans-provincial highway  west from Cranbrook. There were a  couple of other different altogether  routes for the road, no the gathering  declined to pass any of them.  The resolution demanding imiucriiuta  action to determine the feasibility of  reclaiming Kootenay Flats went  through with enthtniiutim, with the  added suggestion that the work have  special   ennrtidorntion   on  account   of  Miss Anna IIagen   returned with her.

The forces of all  the other belligerents are necessarily  on the wane. Those of America are  swift on the increase. Some of her  units are already in the fighting line.  Next spring she ought to be in a position to make the weight of her  sword tell upon her adversaries, arid  her fighting squadrons will join  with the British and the French in  asserting a joint mastery of the air.  Those who are tempted to give way  to utter despondency when they read  bad  news  from   Italy  or  Russia  pay  sore throat. "Sore throat���������eh?" said  the M. O. pleasantly. "Let me see.  Oh, that's not very bad! A slight  irritation���������nothing more. You'll be  all right in a day or two I think  you had better run no risk of renewing the trouble by using your throat,  though; so 1 will recommend you for  a fortnight's sick leave." Armed with  the doctor's certificate, the bandsman obtained his fortnight's sick  leave. The fortnight had just come  to an end, when he met the M. O. on  the parade ground. The bandsman  saluted. The M. O. recognized thc  face and stopped. "How's the  throat?" he asked pleasantly. "It's  quite Avell, sir," was the answer.  "That's good!" said the M. O. "You  can get back to your duty without  fear. By the way, what instrument  do you play?" "The bass drum, sir!"  replied  the bandsman.  npvm.l-   4-l������<*   ������������������*������.������ xx^.r.X'.*.*, ��������� ���������   ������      ^  ������.**......    wj..*    t^u.tv.stullUll    XK4X     XX caiaMCUL  of returned men under certain circumstances included men who had  not been overseas.

During the fighting near Craonne on  the western front, some time ago, a  horse broke his traces and dashed  across  No  Man's  Land  toward     the  tne  fell.  The French immediately made the  befit of the opportunity and set camouflage artists at work fashioning a  papier-mache replica of the dead animal.

If Europe is not to suffer  .from famine on a scale heretofore unknown among civilized men' there  must be a great speeding up of ag'i-  cuzturai production or. this ccnt:r.s:it.

Japane  Has Many Uses  Some time ago notices of a collapsible paper lifeboat, the invention  of a rear admiral of' the Japanese  navy appeared in several journals.  This boat was said to weigh but a  few pounds and could- be folded up  into _ a very small compass. Upon investigation some very interesting information regarding* the paper used  in the construction of this boat was  secured.  The rear admiral's invention consists not of a new paper, but rather  of a chemical process whereby a very  tough fibre paper is rendered waterproof. This paper has been manufactured by the Japanese for centuries  from  the  fibre  of  the  mulberry  muia,  ana   ooinn  jrvuiericu     iu . .

But  shipping is not available in sufficient  tonnage to make the long voyages  required to bring the food surplus of  the Orient and of South America  within reach of the British, French  and Italian consumers. The North  American continent, because of its  proximity to Europe, must continue  to be the chief source of food supply  for the allied nations until the end of  the war and during the earlier stages  ������ff reconstruction.  The necessity for speeding up on  the farms of the Dominion was never so urgent as it is today. Yet it  Is doubtful whether Canada during  the coming crop year will produce as  large a surplus of food for export as  In the earlier years of the war., when  the need was not so great. Many  careful observers, including the leaders of the farmers themselves, state  that there are not enough workers  left on the farms���������apart altogether  from the scarcity of labor due to the  operation of the military service act  ���������to maintain production even at the  level set in former years.

He says:  "It is upto the citizens to organize  ind send help to the farms during  July and August and half of September this coming year, or farmers will  be loath to sow grain or food. They  will be afraid that their labor will be  ln_ vain, and they will turn good  wheat and oat ground into pasture.

Prepare to- close stores, factories and warehouses, if necessary,  ind let us have volunteers. The time  is now opportune; wait not for tomorrow."  Mr. Frankland's call is for volunteers. But why volunteers? If men  to grow food are as necessary to the  lucccss of the allied cause as men to  bear arms, why should not the principle of selective conscription be as  applicable to thc growing of food as  to the raising jf armies? Britain  penalizes thc fhrmcr who turns good  wheat and oat ground into grazing  land. Britain insists on the breaking  up of pasture suitable for cropping.  But in doing so thc men charged  with the task of increasing the British supply of home-grown food see  to it that farm Inhor is provided  where required. Men in thousands  were released temporarily from thc  nrrny last spring to get in the crop.  A very complete organization exists  to direct women's labor to tlip farms,  although compulsion is not yet applied in thc case of women workers.  Ought not similar measures to be  ' taken in Canada?

Never was the Victoria Cross more  fittingly awarded, observes the London Morning Post, in telling the  story of Thomas Crisp. On an August afternoon at about 2:45 the trawl  was shot from the Nelson, while the  fishing smack was on the port tack.  The skipper was below packing fish.  One man was on deck cleaning fish  for the next morning's breakfast. The  skipper came on deck, saw an object on the horizon, examined it  cioseiy a no. s=nt ior ms glasses.  Directly he sang out, "Clear for  action. Submarine." He had scarcely spoken when a shot fell about 100  yards away on the port bow. The  motorman got to his motor; the deck  hand dropped his fish and went to  the ammunition room. The other  hand at the skipper's orders, "Let go  your gear." Meanwhile the gun-  !a.y*r b*!d his firs v.r.til thc skipper  said: "It is no use waiting any longer; we will have to let them have it."  Away in the distance the submarine sent shell after ehel! at the  smack and about the fourth shot the  shell went through the port bow  just below the waterline. Then thc  skipper shover her round.  There was no confusion on board  not even when the seventh shell  struck the shipper, passed through  hi:: r.idr, through tlie deck and out-  through thc side of the ship. The  second hand at once took charge of  the tiller and the firing continued.  All tlie time water was pouring into  the ship, and she was sinking. One  man, the gun-layer, went to the skipper to nee if he was mortally wounded.  "It's all right, boy; do your beat/"  said the skipper, and then, to the  second hand: "Send a message off."  This was the message: "Nelson being attacked by submarine. Skipper  killed.    Send assitance at once."  All this time thc smack wan sinking and only five rounds of ammunition were left. The second hand  went to the skipper, lying there on  the d.'clc. and heard him nay: "Aban-  T. Hornaday in the New York Tribune of August 11, 1915, containing  the statements made to him by Maj.  M. A. Bailey, who recounts how he  traveled with Count von Goetzen,  one of Germany's military attaches,  from Santiago, Cuba, immediately  after the Spanish-American war. On  their way to America Count von  Goetzen confided to Major Bailey,  twenty years in advance, the history  of the beginning of this war and  lVX*i'Or l5a������ie'*r?s account runs:  "Apropos of a discussion ... on  the friction between Admiral Dewey  and the German admiral at Manila,  von Goetzen said to me: 'I will tell  you something which you had better  make a note of. I am not afraid to  tell you this because if you do speak  of it, no one would believe you and  everybody will laugh at you.  " 'And fifteen years from now my  country will start her great war. She  will be in Paris in about two months  after the commencement of hostilities. Her move on Paris will be but  a step to her real object���������the crushing of England. Everything will  move like clockwork. We will be prepared and others will not be prepar  ed.   I   speak  of  this  because  of  the  with  Musty-  life.

The Monroe  Doctrine will be taken charge, of by  us, as we will then have put you In  your place, and we will take charge  of South America as far as we want  to.'"  This project of an invasion of  America subsequent to a German  victory hi Europe was developed at  great length in 1901 by Baron von  Edeislieim in his book: "Operations  Upon the Sea," and it should be recollected that when he wrote it he  was in the oervice of the German  general stall. He said, probably with  some foreknowledge of German habits  in  conquered countries:  "The fact that one or two of her  provinces are occupied by invaders  would not alone move the Americans  to auc for peace. To accomplish this  end. ihe invader** would have to inflict real material damage by injuring the whole country through the  successful seizure of many of the Atlantic porta, in which the threads of  the entir������ wealth of the nation meet.  It should be so managed that a line  of land operations would be in close  juncture with the fleet, through which  we would be in a position to seize In  a short time many of these important  and rich cities, to Interrupt th:ir  means of supply, disorganize all governmental affairs, assume the control  of all useful buildings, confiscate all  war and transport supplies, and lastly, to hnpor.c heavy iudcnmitlo���������-. . . .  an a matter of fact, Germany h the  only great power which Is In a position to conquer the United States."

The German emigrant was trained  to feel that in leaving his native  shores he was followed by the protecting hand of the Fatherland, and)  we find the kaiser himself saying in  a speech as early as June 16, 1896:  "The German empire has become  a world empire. Everywhere in distant quarters of the earth thousands  of our countrymen are living. German  guardians^ of the sea, German science*  German industry, are_ going across  the sea.

Gerard,    had   &ix  interview with the emperor of significant import.

He showed,  however, great bitterness against th^  United States and repeatedly said  America had better look out after  this war; and 'I shall stand no nonsense from America after the war.*  "I wss so tearful in reporting the  dangerous part of this interview, on  account of the many spies not only  in my own embassy, but also in tho  state department, that i" sent but ������  very few words in a roundabout way  by  courier direct  to  the  president.15  We were not only to be conquered  but also to be turned out of our  home. The fate in store for thoso-  who did not respond gracefully to  Germanization is *old in Klaus Wagner's "Krieg," published in 1906:  "By the right of war the right oi  strange races to    migrate into   Ger  manic settlements will be taKc-ii away.-  By right of    war    the non-Germanic  population    in    America and    Grea*  Australia must be settled in Africa.'  ���������Literary Digest.  board.,r He was asked then if they  should lift him into the boat but hio  answer was: "Tom, I'm done; throw  mc overboard."

The decision of the authorities at  Victoria to start in at once to  classify and catalogue the numerous tracts of land in the province  that are offered for sale and settlement -will have the hearty approval of every right-thinking  citizen regardless  of political lean  ings.    "While it is hot  at all likely  that for years to eorne we -will have  much   buying   of   land   before  an  inspection of the property is made,  pnrcliasers   will feel   a whole   lot  surer about their   purchases   if the  government statement  concerning  the   area   fits  in   somewhere   near  with   the   certificate of   character  given   it   by    the   vendor    or   bis  agents.      Whether      this      official  statement will also fix approximate  prices, and the earning capacity of  lands is not stated,   but it  is  not  likely it will go so far; particularly  as to expected revenue���������this being  a matter that  largely   depends on  the   ability   and   willingness    for  work of   the   man   handling   the  land.

No matter which route is taken  Cranbrook will be on it. Will the  Herald please tell why this unseemly regard to abandon a very desirable and partly-constructed  route, serving populated centres,  in favor of & - roact' across - tiie  prairie wilds uninhabited, and no  immediate prospect of being settled,  and which, at the same time,  deprives Creston of the good things  Cranbrook is so solicitous of securing.

The two departments of the  administration at Victoria are convinced the land is worth reclaiming  up to a cost of $75 an acre. The  looal M P.P. and M.P., have assured they will push matters in  their respective spheres to the  limit, while sundry others in the  legislature will also lend a hand in  this connection.

Possibly these two experts may reach here next fall. I note  that one of them hails from Moresby  Island. But when they do come what  can they do for us ? Most of us know  how to raise a few 'hogs if we can get  some good stock and suitable feed at  the right price. -  I notice that other provinces are doing something more practical. Quebec  has just voted several thousand dollars  for furthering increased hog production. Alberta is supplying farmers  with good breeding sows bred to purebred boars, at cost price. What is the  matter with B.C. ?  This province is particularly suited  for hog growing.    Its short and mild  winters ; its long and moderately cool  summers;   its   abundant   clover   and  other suitable pasture, and  its heavy  root crops make an ideal combination,  not enjoyed by any of our sister provinces.       We suffer only from the fact  that the bulk of our grain for finishing  off must be shipped in ; but this defect  is more than offses by our advantages.  What we need at the present time in  order to eucourage greater hog production is:   1,    Some assistance in obtaining good   breeding stock,     2.   A  guarantee that suitable foodstuffs will  be forthcoming at a reasonable price.  3. That the rancher.s can depend upon  a fair price for his product.    With a  practical farmer like John Oliyer as  our minister of agriculture it would  appear that such things  might be ex-  peCteu.���������Out life   seeiiiH   to  vs too  OiiSy  with railway and other matters to devote any attention to agriculture.  Any reference to politics would  clearly be out of place in this letter,  but I may be permitted to express the  hope that we farmers may in due time  get. something more encouraging than  increased assessments and doubled-up  taxes.

Not Even a Half-Lie  At these words  so    fraught  with  terrible consequence, so fuii of hidden meaning and suggestion, there  fell upon those who heard them a  curious hush, as if they suddenly recognized that what was to come was  of an infinitely more serious nature  than what bad preceded it. Only  Lettty Ellington made any sound;  she caught her breath in a quick,  gasping sob, and caught instinctively  at Stephen Ellington's hand. The old  man, stiffening, drew himself up with  a sharp indignant glance at Hilda,  and he rapped out a few words in a  voice that trembled with anger.  "I have never used such words to  "Wait  a  moment,  me think!"  Hartsdale suddenly smote his walking cane on the floor.  "Think!" he exclaimed. "Good  God! Who ever heard of a man asking for time to think when a charge  like that was made against him?  Why, it's a case of a plain yes or  no!"  "Yes," said Colonel Tressingham,  "yes���������of a plain, answer. You're  challenged,   sir;   you're   challenged!"  At that moment the door of the  study was suddenly opened, and the  great man whom Hilda had encountered on the steps as she entered the  house, came leisurely in, looking  straight to George.  "I say, Ellington," he began. "It's  just struck me "  Kc paused at that, pulling himself  up and glancing at the people around  long ago,  while my wife    was if woman in my lite before,.madam,  t from  home.

I had asked her to come here to assure me, in the presence of my wife  and my father, that what she ^ hau  said to me that night was true."  Colonel       Trcssingham's       cheeks  flushed.  "You doubt her word, sir?" he demanded angrily.  "I ask you to be patient for a moment or two," said George. "I ask  you, aiso, to hear what I have to  say. 1 believe you may be aware,  Colonel Tressingham���������Lord Hartsdale at any rate, is aware���������that I am  a member of the government���������that I  happen to hold omce as civil lord of  ���������he admiralty.

"That is the right course  to take."  The great man hesitated a second,  then closed the door, on -which he  had kept his hand, and came further  into the room. He recognized Lord  Hartsdale and gave him a cold nod;  he recognized Mrs. Tressingham,  and gave her a chilly bow; his keen  face became grave as he advanced  to the desk in the centre of the room.  "Yes," he said, "I see that something is happening. I take it, then,  that it is about the subject we have  just discussed?"  "Yes���������about        that," answered  George.

Belgium having withdrawn  from German influence, Germany  should happen to be defeated in a  future war. The enemy could quickly  seize upon all thc big manufactories,  arsenals of fighting armies and impose upon us a dishonorable peace,"  = Thc resolution closes by this assertion that thc league intends to struggle "in order that British arrogance  and our foe's claims may not prevail  and rob from us, in the cousc of the  diplomatic negotiations, the territory  which we must not: under any pretence whatsoever, give up to them,  the Flanders."

School    Children    Find    New    War  Work in Making Books of  Clippings  The school children of Canada and  the United States have assembled all  the literary lights from George Ade  and H. C. Witwer with their "Fables  in Slang" aud baseball stories to  Henry James in the tittle collections  of stories which they have pasted into paper booklets for the use of T.B.  soldiers in the sanatoria of the military hospitals commission.  Thc question of keeping the men  affected with tuberculosis supplied  with sufficient reading matter is a  problem. Every so often the books  in service must be burned for sanitary reasons, and to destroy valuable  books in this way seems a great pity.  The effort of the children to supplement these libraries which must  be replenished ever so often with  reading such as soldiers like, is one  of the most appreciated supplementary services which anvone has yet  thought of rendering tne boys.  Teachers have supervised the selection of stories, and the collections  are varied. There arc love stories,  sporting tales, adventure, detective  mysteries, humorous essay3 and  poems, everything bright and cheerful that can be found in the present  day monthly publications.  Pasted on heavy white paper and  stitched down thc back they arc yery  i fine iittie books. In each one is a  little letter from the child who made  it hoping in his best copybook form  that the soldier will enjoy it as much  as lie did making it.  They come in lots~te the sanatoria  from points even as tar distant as  Spokane and North Carolina, and  some of thc children engaged in making the collections arc as young as  eight years.  ������*������   *j  eoi  everywneree  Made in Canada,  i4-16  ack as Dirt  Liver Was All Upset and There Was  Pain   Under   the   Shoulder-  blade���������Two Interesting  Letters  So many people suffer from derangements of the liver that we feel  sure_ these two reports, just^ recently  received, will prove interesting reacting and valuable information to many  readers of this paper.

Then, about two or  three years afterward I was troubled  again with the swelling, but only on  my right side. I secured some more  Kidney-Liver Pills, and took them,  which finally cured me. I have not  been troubled in this way since. I  can cheerfully recommend Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills to anyone  having kidney or liver trouble.  "We have also found Dr. Chase's  Linseed and Turpentine excellent for  coughs and colds. In fact, any of  Dr. Chase's medicines which we have  used have been good."

Dixon, health  commissioner of that state, who advises them to cat less of this food  and of meat. He admits, however.  that since one man's meat is another man's poison, the requirements of  a food administrator should be elastic enough to leave room for every  man to avoid the foods which experience has taught him are harmful  and still to get adequate nourishment.  . "Most of our food stuffs are made  up of different constituents," he says.  "A potato is largely composed of  starch whereas beefsteak is largely  composed of nitrogen or protein.  Starch represents so many heat-producing units, and beefsteak likewise  produces its own quota. This is so  when you consider the matter from  ft l3.1?orstorv ^oint; but if "-ou sisde  a test of the same values by feeding  these foods to human beings, you  would find the values varied greatly  because of the variations of the human or organic machinery which  handled them.  "The people of the state of Pennsylvania eot too much potato. The  large proportion of this vegetable  produces a catarrhal condition of  the digestive tract, which interferes  with digestion and ieaves the patient  over a long series of years producing starvation. Meat, as a rule, is  also overeaten by Pennsyl vatiias.  Just now, however,^ during the tension of wgf we need more meat than  usual."  lierman Kmciency  Minard's Liniment Cures Diphtheria.  Finest Flower of Anarchy  Preparing Way for a Sane and Orderly System of Government  For warning  Russians  that     they  would be_German slaves if they fell  into the tSoisheviki trap and made a  separate peace with Germany,    General  Dukhonin,    the    commander-in-  chief of the    Russian    forces,     was  brutally assassinated by the    crazed  followers of Lenine and Trotsky. In  the  murder of Dukhonin  Bolshcvik-  ism reached- its finest flower of anarchy and violence.    It was a notification to all patriotic Russians of what  their fate would be if they fell into  Bolshcviki  hands  after  resisting   the  plans    of    the arch-traitors,   Lenine  and Trotsky.    It  is absurd  to  think  that  Russians    will long  submit   to  domination    by    such    lawless   and  tyrannical  forces, and  there is good  reason  to believe    that after    a few  more  excesses of    this    sort a   reaction will set in against thc Bolshcviki   that  will   sweep  them     out     of  power and prepare the way for   the  establishment  of a sane and  orderly  system   of    government.���������Springfield  Union.  Not Certain That It Is the Result of  the Form of Government  Germany   was   well    governed, in  certain   particulars;    it   had     grown  rich and powerful; it surpassed most  umci    anno   111   <x   vti.iici.jr    ui    wojro   uv������  necessary to enumerate here.        But  why? To the mind steeped ia  Prus-  sianism there was    but one    answer  possible.   It was the government! To  this    two objections at once present  themselves.    The first is that    there  are two kinds or degrees of_ efficiency;  the one  like  theirs*   which,     for  want of a better name, we may call  mechanical; the other of a iess tangible quality, easily  recognized,    but  hard to define, the efficiency o*    the  individual as opposed to the corporate efficiency of the community.    It  is  not   possible  here���������perhaps  it    is  not possible    at    all���������to    determine  which of these is the more to be desired.    But it is very apparent    that  what we  call   the  spirit    of    liberty  aligns itself rather    with^  individual  than with communal efficiency.   And  the second answer is not unlike the  first.     It  is   that   we   still  await   the  proof  that   the   desirable   factors    in  the position which the Germans have  attained, are  due  wholly  or  even in  considerable part  to  their  form     gI  government.    That is an assumption  which,   like  too    many     assumptions  proceeding from the same source, remains a dogma rather than a provable  proposition.���������Wilbur   C.
