Issaac is a benedict with two children  to his credit who are at the St. Mary's  mission. He writes in part:  - "Our little scotch mil. is working  pretty steady the last few days* We  are making ties for the railroads.

Thurston, who went overseas with the 102nd Battalion almost  two years ago, is among the troops  that were returned to Canada this  month, reaching home on Sunday  last. The strain of service in France  plainly shows on him. Physically he  is far from looking his old time self,  though not suuering from any serious  specific disability. He is expecting his  discharge and will not likely return  overseas.  15 00  15 00  F. Putnam, Sept. 1-30  12 00  Nov. 1-30  82 50  T. Putnam, Oct. 1-31  15 00  T.

With one exception  all the adults scored 90 per cent, and  over, and an equally good showing  was made by the school scholars. All  those taking the work maintained  their enthusiasm all through the  week,- and for schoal children the  speed attained and the regard shown  for the other details of the wo?k, Mr.  Castner figures the Valley has about  twenty additional appie packers that  will give a good account of themselves this fall, if their ser-v-lees are  requisitioned.

The salve he  gave me to put on was very severe,  and the poor child-would cry for an  hour or more after an application.  For six weeks it continued to spread  all over her head, and came down to  her neck and cars. She suffered terribly. At last some kind ladies told  me about P.-. Chase's Ointment, so  I got a box, and the first time I put  ir on she was relieved of pain, and  the second time thc swelling was all  gone. Before \ve_had finished thc  first box the sores were nearly all  gone. I have told all the people  around here about your Ointment,  and I cannot praise it too much. It  is now two years since my little girl  was troubled in this way, aud it never came back, sc you can see she is  completely cured.

Thc demands upon a  mother's health     are  many  and   severe. __ Her  own   health  trials and her children's welfare    exact h^avy tolls, while hurried meals,  broken  rest and  much  indoor  living  tend to weaken her constitution.    No  wonder that the woman at home   is  often  indisposed  through     weakness,  headache,   backaches    and    nervousness.    Too many women have grown  to accept these visitations as a part  of the lot of motherhood.    But many  and varied as her health troubles are,  thc canse is simple and the cure     at  hand.  When  well, it is  the  woman's  good blood that keeps her well; when  ill she must make her blood rich    to  renew her health. The nursing mother  more   than  any other  woman    in  the world needs rich blood and plenty of it. There is one always unfailing  way  to  get  this   good   blood  so  necessary to perfect health, and that  is  through  the use of Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills.    These  pills    make     new  blood abundantly, and through  their  use  thousands' of weak, ailing  wives  and mothers have been made bright,  cheerful and .strong. If you are ailing,  easily tired, or depressed, it is a duty  you owe yourself and your family to  give Dr.   Williams.'   Pink Pills  a "fair  trial.  What this  medicine  has    done  fbr others it w*il! T-urely^do fop you.  Mrs.   W.   H.   Alberry,   * Mallorytown,  Ont., says:���������-"I  was very much    run  down  and  suffert.d    froni     weakness  and nervousness. At times I did not  know what to do. as  1 would shake  all over, and would have  to go and  lie   down.   I   wras   treated  by   several  .doctors,  who  said the trouble     was  bad blood and weak nerves, but they  did not   do mo: a bit of good.  I was  advised     to   try   I>r.   Williams'   Pink  Pills and they made me feel like    a  new woman. Later when I was nursing  my baby,  I  felt run  down,    and  again took the pill?, and my baby at  six      months      weighed      thirty-five  pounds.    It was  this  medicine     that  gave me thc  strnegth  to nurse him,  and both baby and    myself    greatly  benefitted by it.    I hope every suffering   woman   will   give  Dr.   Williams'  Pink Pills a fair trial as I did, for I  havo  proved   their  wonderful   merit."

(2) Tin- idea of universal peace is  flcoffed at and contempt poured upon  advocates.  (3) Every possible argument is adduced for the increase of armaments  after the war.  (4) Certain of theso publications  stated in them that preparations  must already be begun for this future  war.  (6) Definite proposals are made  concerning methods of preparations  for^ the "next  war."  The most assiduous of the German sv/crd-ralt'.ers are lhc- German  professors. Professor Rudolph Euck-  en of Jena argues ihat war and civilization arc not opposed as might  appear to be the case. This learned  doctor asserts that war dc si toys all  shams and brings truth to "light; it  preserve?, people from artificiality  and ettcmir.ar.cy; It causes the regeneration of mankind and thc rejuvenation   of   civilization.  Another man, Professor J*. Jiran-  denburg, in a book . called "Germany'-. /<i\ns in the War," published only last y-'ar, ronclnue*; that thc  world'*! i-isiory follows natural laws  and sot ethical laws. This"'" gentleman is of the opinion that a court  of law for the decision of inlcrna-  tio!:;V disputes would be a serious  obstacle to healthy progress. After  the war Germany must continue to  pile up armaments in order to insure her future. "In future Germany must he more strongly armed  than ever, both at sea and on  land."  Other German professors write in  the same strain.: One of them says  that ".Pacifism is madness," and that  "the German people cannot be too  Htrongly warned against pacifism."  This gentleman adds tin*, following  as to the relationship between nations: "What wc want is not to make  moral conquests m the world, but  that the world should fear us. IJe-  tween individual human beings love  is thc surest basis for union and  peace, but between individual nations  it is   force and  force  only."  A commercial authority, in a book  called "IV;i.*i> Time Problems,"  points out that Britain must be  conquered aud brought low. llrit-  ain is to be thc object of Germany's  next war.

A collection of fourteen war sermons, published iu 1917,  actually contains the assertion that  "we Germans" can advance only by  thc    'korce   oi  our  unns."

In November one of the principal Viennese  papers, Die Zeit, in an article headed "Castles in thc Air," dismissed  as wholly futile and incapable of accomplishment the program of the  war party in Germany and Austria.

But, as  is admitted with engaging frankness,  earJy in the war Austria aud Germany hoped to win neutrals to their  way of thinking. Germany, in particular, laid herself ont, with no less  zeal than confidence to win neutrals  to her cause, firmly convinced that  "if only our cause were sufficiently  well explained to them neutrals  would undoubtedly turn to us, and  especially   to  Germany.  "Most hopes of all were built upon  America, which was considered as  the leading power among neutrals,  and with its help it was hoped to  win ovcr thc other neutrals.

A disadvantage of the Anatolian wheat,  and ore was the absence of means of  transport, while a somewhat, serious  drawback to thc Mesopotamia _ supplies of "everything" was that Mesopotamia first required irrigation, and-  secondlys that the Britsh were there,  sitting tight, and apparently disinclined to  move.

"While dancing has a rightful - place in our  pleasures, surely things have not  come to such a pass that dancing is  to nionoplize the entertainment life  enormous yields of roots and grain  these lands will produce, a tract  on the f!at3 ought to produce  enough revenue-to more than meet  I the  instalments    of  principal and  of   the community.      Creston has iiiterest as they  accrue  from year  good business to choose  the latter,  if you will so have drainage.  Just how magnificently the manhood of British  Columbia  has re-  cnonded   to  the c-3.11  for men and  more men to serve the empire over-  song  Is strikinslv  revealed in the  complete  returns  now to hand of  the soldiers vote  in the  Dominion  election    last     December.    These  figures show B.C. troops  in  camp,  field and hospital rolled  up a total  of 28,445   votes, as compared with  24,862   from     Manitoba   soldiers,  AVfOti.  oi   Alberta  ana  I5,oyj  or  Saskatchewan.        Nova      Scotia,  New  Brunswick   and  Prince Edward   Island   combined     have   a  showing of less  than 20,000 soldier  votes.    Quebec,   with a population  live times greater than B.C., polled  17,150  votes,  or  little   more than  half   of   this   province's  showing.  Incidentsilly as for B.C. the soldier  vote was about one-third   as large  as  the civilian   vote.    In   Quebec  the vote of  those   at  home   was  twenty times larger than its soldier  vote.    Ontario is the only province  that can  beat  British   Columbia's  phenomenal   showing   in   such   a  splendid cause.  a   sufficiency    of   dramatic    and  musical   talent that   needs but a  :!** ���������*������".3o   AT  *J*!i������V**-r!-5*--*?!-s*$- ��������� ������"*.-~*.**s4-   j-s.*P   ������V9**-i������-Mi****r-������ *-***-  11UMI.V   VS������.

This was more prominently than usual brought to our attention after a recent masquerade  when ladies, who enjoy some reputation for being good dancers, and  rea8onaliy popular personally, remarked that they had plenty of  partners until the time masks were  removed, but  after  4-V������o4-   4-Vv.eiTr   wna,������o  xlxxxuv   i4x.xsj     ..

At present in-order  to secure a  supply of this far-from-near-hay the  rancher has   to cut  ever  an area  four times greater than  he  would  were the lands seeded to clover and  when  he  has   thus   unnecessarily  labored he has a grade of feed that  at best is little  more  than  a  life-  saver  for "cattle;  and  useless  for  horses���������if not positively dangerous.  Incidentally, he has  to do his hay  harvesting often at a time when he  wants to be at other work, simply  because some one  else  has  started  mowing and if he  don't  get  busy  he will   have  to  go  half  way  to  Kootenay Landing to get  a choice  location to cut on.  Figuring a man and team to be  worth $7 a day the present-day  hay crop comes pretty expensive,  and more so when one considers the  inferior quality of it, to say nothing  of having to do the haying when  the cutting operations of lbs other  fellow compels you to���������ready or  not ready.  For most every cattleman in the  Valley to-day a 20-acre tract on  the reclaimed Kootenay Flats  would grow enough first grade  clover or alfalfa to feed iu the best  possible way all the beef and dairy  along  The NelsorftNews assures that  "Soldiers are men of prayer."  There's another argument in favor  of reclamation. Five or six hundred such citizens in Creston Valley will be a welcome addition.  stands to benefit immensely by  drainage as well as the Creston  Valley.

The class of school students  proved exceptionally apt pupils, as  will be noted from the creditable  percentage each of them scored.  From present appearances the services of most of them can be utilized to good advantage this fall.  A report just to hand shows over  1470 employees of the Bank of  Commerce have now' 'taken up  military duty, representing 93 per  cent, of the present male staff between the ages of 20 and 45 years,  and 69 per cent, of the entire male  staff of the bank, a showing of  which any institution may surely  be proud.  Admitting the correctness of the  theory that lightning never strikes  twice in the same  place,   it would  seem as if the  growers  of strawberries, raspberries and  other  soft  fruits have  good  cause  to  rejoice  and   be   exceeding   glad.    Recent  advice from  Vancouver  is  to the  effect that  at  some   coast  points  many contracts   have already been  closed by the cannery  interests for  strawberries at nine cents a pound  at the ranch which,  the  Province  interprets   to   mean   that   strawberries,  under  normal   conditions,  will not sell for  less than   $2.25 a  crate���������as    compared    with   $1.75  much of the time in 1917.    Locally  the berry growers are not worrying  ���������so much about   prices  as they are  about the extent of  the  yield, due  to the excessively  dry summer and  early-fall   seasons     retarding   the  usual   plant   development   during  that period of   1917.    In   this connection   it   will   be  of   interest  to  know that O. J.  Wigen,   the   Valley's largest   and   foremost  strawberry   grower,   predicts   that if we  get an early  spring   with considerable   of   good    growing     weather  throughout, at least a normal crop  is assured.     This   ia   tho   first time  existing conditions    have   been experienced   in   the   Valley   so   there  are no W:nl precedents Lo lie guided  hy.    However,    tin-   h'-f-t   can   h"  looked for; there in  an   abundance  of moisture  in   the  earth,   and all  tho weather   prophets   agree   tlmt  w*e are to have spring immediately  almost, if not sooner.  With the first of April looming near,  after which time it. will be unlawful to  transport booze from one province to  another, those with a thirst aboard  are loading up so as not to be caught  short when the crack of doom comes.  The amount of wet goods arriving in  town lately has been quite large and.  one is inclined to wonder where in  the 8am hill all the money comes for  "the paying of the bill*.���������Kaslo  Kootenay.  Hereafter, for a time at least, it  will be emieently fftting to refer to  the Kaslo sons of Scotia as the  thirsty, rather than the thrifty  Scotch.

The  Review   has   no  animus in   this  matter;;  We   uO'uo G&iiCt--  -a-iiu  > i  one  "we" is used in the household sense.  This rather deplorable feature of  our social life should receive some  corrective attention from the  younger generation, or dances may  have to go by the board-���������both for  want of the cash support of the  benedicts as well as the refresh  ments always supplied in good  measure by the better halves.  Possibly this shortcoming of the  younger element may in part explain why certain whist drives are  now planned with the usual after-  dance omitted. One never losses  by doing a good turn.  Tlie Way Svpply  an aounaance to sen to tne owners  of smaller herds at a price below  $20 a ton���������a figure this feed seldom, if ever, reaches in Creston.  Besides permitting haying to be  done when it should be, or when  most advantageous to the rancher,  the superior gaade of feed would  put the rancher in a position to  turn off butcher cattle all year  round, something they are not in a  position to���������very few of them���������  ri������*ht now.  And our cattlemen will do well  to remember that reclamation���������  even if their prophesy be correct as  to disastrous consequences���������-may  be a blessing in disguise. The way  haying operations are carried on  on the flats at present, , as sure as  death and taxes, it will he only a  few years till there will be no hay  growing down there for either good  pasture or feed, and then what is  to become of the cattle industry ?  Of "two" possible  evils  it may be  Local Liberals who are inclined  to pooh, pooh, the idea of the  government getting on with  reclamation are pretty much up a  tree in view of Hon. Mr. Pattuilo's  very frank and businesslike statement of policy in the matter. There  can be no doubt as to where John  Keen stands on the question.

Under such circumstances  it is   humanly  impossible for the  Allies to prevent reverses,  some of  which may almost assume the proportions of disasters.

This  gentleman, on this occasion, met him  with a peculiar smile, in which there  seemed to be some cryptic significance.  "I think, Mr. King, that this affair  is about to come off," he remarked.  "I sent for you in a bit of a hurry.  The fact is, there have been some  developments."  "Yes?"  said King.  "Of  a   strange   nature.

In  a  flock  of    100  hens it will be found that, on the average  10  to  30 per  cent,   rareiy  lay  an egg during the profitable months  of the year, and another small   percentage inay be barren, while the remainder are fairly good layers.   The  only  way   is   to   weed   out   the   poor  layers and keep only the    best.      It  ' often   pays  better   to   take   one  liun-  . dred hens out of a flock of one hun-  I dred and fifty, after which, with less  labor,  one  can  get  nearly as    many  eggs   and  a  much    more     profitable  yield per bird.  Where the selection is not snade,  the pool* birds are fed at the expense  of the better ones. Improvement can  come largely through the union of  two factors: (1) Rigid selection at  the end of the pullet year, and thc  mating  of  a breeding  pen  from  the  \X4 Jf X-4 JT ������4 .

At the first battle oi Ypres Nellie  trotted along beside her owner, a  British officer, into the* rain of shrapnel and high explosive shells, with  only the thought of being near her  master. He fell. She, only wounded, wandered about No Man's Land  until picked up by Major Osterreith,  of the Belgian 1st Regiment of  Guides.  Nelile lived with the Belgian regiment in the trenches for many  months, always ready to "go over  the top." Twice she was wounded  by shrapnel, but she never deserted.  f When Major Osterreith came to  ihis country with the Belgian mission Nellie came along, and thousands of Americans have seen her  twinkling eyes and her stubby wagging tail. Death was clue probably  to a combination of wounds and age,  but she always will be remembered  uy ner comrades as a real heroine.  ���������Milwaukee Journal.
