J, McRobb was a week-end visitor  from Wycliffe with his family here.  For its size Wycliffe is reported to  haye given more to the Y.M.C.A.  than any point in the province.  A new wire fence has just been  built around the school, and a number  of shade trees set out. Dad Browell  was in charge, and has made quite a  workmanlike job of it.  The wet weather that has prevailed  for the past week put the kibosh on  log hauling, and the caterpillar has  been utilized at land clearing opera  tions. At the rate the lumber is com.  ing out the stock of logs in the yard  wiirnot keep the mill going much  more than the end of the month.  In the absence of her husband Mrs.  (Rev.) W. M.

With her husband and family  of eight children they arrived in Creston Valley in ; May, 1891, coming in  from Utah by prairie schooner, and  bringing with them a number of head  of both horses aud cattle. For about  three years they homesteaded on the  bank of the Kootenay, but the floods  of 1895 necessitated a hurried removal  and they took up their abode in what  is still known as the Huscroft or Deer  Lodge district near PorthilL At the  time of their coming the departed was  the second white Woman to make her  home in this part of the Kootenay���������  the other being Mrs. Rykert, who is  still living at Rykerts������..B.C.  The late Mrs,. Huscroft is survived  by a husbandyfoar daughters and four  eons, aii of whom are resident .here,  and all of them were able to visit her  ���������it intervals during her confinement to  the hospital, the aged husband being  with her when^she passed away on  Wednesday.

Crawford, R. J. Long and T. Ross.  Coming here with a young family  at a time when neighbors were few,  and continued so for a good many  years, deceased naturally became  truly a woman of-the home, but notwithstanding this retiring uispositicn  she enjoyed the" acquaintance and  esteem of a wide circle of friends who  sympathize deeply with the aged  father and the family left to mourn  her passing.  Chief Luke  also   brifiey   addressed  the braves,   thanking  them  for   the  honor they had done him, and asked  for their cordial support in maintaining good government on the reserve.  Owing to Father. Larsbot being in delicate health,   and  other  causes the  after-celebration was modest indeed,  few   of  the  Bonners  Ferry   Indians  coming up for the event.  ^ Dominic Luke   appears   to   be the  logical choice  for   the   position.    He  comes .of stock that haye   been   chiefs  and near chiefs for several generations-  back.   At the industrial school he hod  the reputation   for   being   above the  ayerage in  ability   and   intelligence,  while with the business community of  Creston he has a- good reputation for  honesty and' square   dealing.   Right  from the start he was spotted as about  the most likely  looking  successor  to  the late  chief, and   his  election and  assumption of the  chief ship   will   be  heard with satisfaction in the  Valley.

This section has given $400  $500 more than was expected, while  for the whole of the tersitory $3400  more than was expected has come in.  In connection with-the Valley donations it is gratifying to report that  more than 50 per cent, of the money  pledged has already been paid in cash,  honorarj* treasurer, Charles Moore,  sending headquarters a draft for $768  on Monday morning. All told some  280- of our citizens helped along the  good work, which figures out au average of $5 per contributor���������really a  remarkable showing at this season of  the year in the Valley.  In compiling the returns the Alice  Siding section has been grouped with  Creston, as well as a oart of the dis  trict that sometimes passes as Erickson, this latter feature accounting for  the total from Erickson being below  the usual standard of giying of this  section of the Valley.

It   is   largely     responsible  for   the   farmer's   ability     to   produce  foodstuffs   in   the   past   for   such  low  prices.    The  cost of producing crops  is  bound to  increase whenever    any  large proportion of this boy labor is  displaced  by  high-priced   hired   help.

The sooner we realize what  sort of task lies before us the better  for  us  all  in    every  way.���������New  "Vrsrl*    Kv^^itio-   Sun.  "Algy,  book."

The talc lias made thc captain's  name a byword of gallantry and |  bravery in the British' camp. Here  arc the facts:  When  the Germans  delivered  their  tremendous   assault    against     Masni-  eres and Marcoing during their general offensive on November thirtieth,  those  two    towns   and  the   territory  s about  them  were   being  held    by   a  \ division of  English troops.    On   the  staff  of    the     commanding    general  there was a dashing captain who may  be   designated  as   Captain  Black  for  purpose of this narrative. Black was  a man of long service and much beloved-by all the troops. He had been  a    jovial    companion "until    recently,  when, during a German air raid over  England,  his baby girl  was  crippled  for life by a bomb.    Black had   become bitter against the Germans and  had sworn  that hc would exact full  penalty  for "the  airmen's  deed.     The  captain  little  knew when  he   turned  in  on the night of  thc twenty-ninth  of November how soon he would be  able to get his revenge.  Next morning the  Germans  attacked Masnicres  in force and the brigade to the right  of  thc troops holding the town  w-as  forced  to  fall back.   Thc brigade  in  the  town,  howrcver,   stood firm    and  fought  the     enemy    off.     Meanwhile  waves of Germans had swept by the  south  of  the town and were  swarming westward.  Captain  Black    came    out    of his  headquarters    south    of Marcoing to  find five  Germans already in possession   of  a   great   dump   nearby.       So  quickly had the enemy advanced /that  this  was   the     first   intimation     that  they  were   nearby.   Black  had   in   lus  hand  a  heavy  walking  stick     which  was his only weapon.  Without a moment's   hesitation     he     charged     the  dump alone and    beat  about him so  fiercely  that he brained  all  five   opponents  before   they   recovered  from  the  surprise.  He had made good his  vow. but his work was  not finished.  Other  Germans    appeared west of  Les  Rues Verts,    a southern  suburb  of Masnicres. Black collected all the  signallers, cooks, orderlies and   other  servants    available,    and    with    two  companies   of regulars  delivered    an  attack   towards   Rues    Vertes.       The  Germans   fell  back   and   fierce   hand-  to-hand  fighting followed.  Black  led  his little army from house to house  and as often as the Germans made a  stand he drove them out, until finally the whole suburb had been cleared  with  thc  exception  of ^ one   machine  gun whose crew of    eight men kept  pumping  bullets      into      the    British  ranks.

This- idea  has been put forward in thc Bavarian parliament, where there was  wont lo he rejoicing at the reports  of damages to open towns in France  and  Great   Britain   by  air  raids;   and  lS    iiOYv  chamber  national group of Socialists who  have, to the. extent that they dared,  hampered the resistance of France  to Germany. Tt is inevitable that  some pacifist in the British parliament will forthwith begin to b!eat  about the. wickedness of reprisals  and urge some understanding with  Germany. The German propaganda  is going strong in both France and  Great Britain; aud its directors find  no difficulty in' tricking legislators  and journalists into playing 'its  game.  As fur tlie German military viewpoint about attacks from the air  upon open towns, il is indicated with  dramatic clearness in a despatch  from Faiis describing ihe death of  Capt. Schobler, a Bavarian, who  commanded the recent flotilla of  tiolhas which attacked Paris by  night. The. Gotha carrying the valiant captain came down in Haines  near Chateau Thierry, and lu* was  rescued from the machine, though  not before he had suffered injuries  thai proved lalal. The news iU.-,  patch  goes on  to say:  "By order of a general passing iu  an automobile who had seen the fall  the officer was taken U> a hospital,  lie was in a hopcie.-o i oiidilioii.

It  will ruin this  country  especially.  The first^ truth is_that the war was  made by Prussia. This awful calamity is the direct, handicraft of Prussia and of Prussia alone. The second i  truth is that the barbaric precedents  in modern warfare were created by  "Prussia, will remain if Prussia survives unbeaten, and would be the  death of England.  The second fundamental truth in  the whole affair, which is less often  forgotten, but which is still top much  glossed ovcr, is this: Prussia in-the  course of this war has gradually-.dissolved that moral code upon which  thc culture of Europe reposed and  without which Europe can never recover herself. Only her' defeat can  restore that code, and on that code  depends the very life of this island  more than of any othe'r nation.  So true is it that Prussia in breaking  these  elementary laws   of  European     morality     has   imperilled     the  whole   of   our   civilization,     that   she  herself���������utterly  unscrupulous   as    her  whole    history     proves  her  to  be���������  showed, hesitation    before  each  new  step  downwards.  There  was     always  an   interval  between   two   succeeding  increments of atrocity, nearly always  an attempted apology or explanation.  There was here exactly what you see  in the.career of the individual  criminal.    Things  rare in  1871;���������such    as  the shooting of hostages���������were, done  wholesale in 1914. Things impossible  even to Prussia in 1871���������such as the  massacre  of neutrals���������were   done  as  a matter of course in  1914.    Things  such as the use of poison, which any  sane man in this country during the  first six  months  of  the  war    would  have  told you  were unthinkable    in  Europe, were done by Prussia before]  twelve   months   had   passed.     Things  which were quite unthinkable in 1915  wrerc done in 1916-���������and so on.  The series lies patent to all. The  drama has been- enacted before the  eyes   of   all.

The design  oi Class "A" badge is the same as  that originally issued by the Canadian Patriotic Fund. This was decided upon in view of the strong representations that it was desired to  perpetuate this design, as it was al- .  ready well known and highly valued  by the soldiers to whom it had been  issued.

Similar orders have been given at intervals  throughout the war. Some^l,400 civilians���������mostly women and children  ���������have lost their lives in England  from bombs dropped from airships  and airplanes.

These raids  are made chiefly in daylight, which  makes it possible to control, to some  extent, the dropping of thc bombs;  but there is inevitable incidental destruction ol civilian life and properly.

B.C., FRIDAY, MAY 24  mSS  The \session off the British  Columbia legislature which  came to a close the latter part  of April hung up something  of a record in the way of enacting legislation. For the two  months the house was in session no less than 113 bills,  small, large and medium, were  put through, and most off them  are now the law of the land.  While some are prone to  question the possibilities of  our elected representatives to  intelligently pass upon such a  seeming mass of lawmaking in  legislation, and at the close of  the legislature have his statement in shape for perusal by  the government and opposition  leader, and issue the same over  the   signature   of   both   these  gentlemen, either in the press  of the province, or in a pamphlet which could' be mailed to  the names on the last revised  voters list.   What is wanted is  a plain statement of the case  with no party boquets or bricks  in any shape, manner or form.  Surely some one capable of  concisely, intelligently and impartially stating the case can  be found, and with a considerate government handing out an  extra $1500 a year to ihe oppo-  sitionjeader, surely that gentleman would not scruple at concurring in the findings of an  official thus instructed and employed.  .$1.00  -JAMS !

When Dr. Hamilton's Pills are taken, they not only correct constipated bowels, but act upon the liver  as well.   -  Quite unlike ordinary medicines  which purge and give temporary relief, Dr. Hamilton's Pills remove thc  conditions which cause biliousness,  and thus permanent cures are effected. No person who occasionally uses  Dr. Hamilton's Pills will ever suffer  from the headache, bad stomach ' or  bilious complaint. Get a 25c box today.  Average and Best  The Difference Between the General  Average Yield and Those Which  Are at the Top  Tn no line of agricultural work in  Canada is there a greater opportunity to increase production than  there is in thc improvement of dairy  herds. The average yield of milk  per cow in Canada is only about  4,300 pounds per annum. Compare  that  with individual   records  of  over. of  tractors  worth  less  expected linn  cv-  (Continued.)

Settlers Are Pouring In  Greatest Rush to    the    West    Ever  Experienced  "Western Canada is "experiencing  an immigration movement the like  of which she has never witnessed before in her history," according to J.  Bruce Walker, commissioner of immigration at Winnipeg.  "In the four weeks ending March  2," said' Mr. Walker, "the numbers  of settlers coming , into Western  Canada was greater by over 200 than  in thc same -weeks of last year. During that period the increase in value  of stock and settlers' effects corning  into thc country was $800,0000. At  North Portal 1 saw forty carloads  of settlers' effects entering Canada.  These people were from the state of  Illinois and were going into Alberta  and Saskatchewan.  "The demand for land has never  been so tremendous. The C.P.R. is  selling land, including ready-made  farms, throughout the west, chiefly  in Alberta, at the rate of 80,000  acres per month. Thc Hudson Bay  Co. is selling land at the rate of 40,-  000 acres per month, and have kept  up that record since August last. I  never saw such a splendid class of  immigrants come into the country,  and 1 never knew prospects to be  better for the country than they arc  today.

This will cost very little but will  positively remove every hard or soft  corn or callus from one's feet.  A few drops of this new ether compound applied directly upon a tender, aching corn relieves the soreness  instantly.,arid soon the entire corn or  callus, root and all, dries up -and can  be  lifted  off   with   the  fingers.  This new way to rid one's feet ot  corns was introduced by a Cincinnati  man, who says that fre.zone dries in  a moment, and rimpiy shrivels up the  corn or callus without irritating the  surrounding skin.  Don't let father die of infection or  lockjaw from whittling at his corns,  but clip this out and make him try  it.

EVER in the history of this  old world have the people  lived under such tremendous nervous strain as to-day.  Millions awake each morning in  fearful dread of what the day  may bring forth, and live each  hour with nerves at highest  tension.  While many are falling under tho  Btrain, others have found one means  or another of fortifying tho nervous  system bo as to maintain health and  vigor.  Tho treatment moat widely used  is Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, popularly  known, ati the food cure, hecauiic it  tfecdfl tho exhausted nerves and  fltorcH up nervo force and nervous  taaergy.  Nothing breaks down the nervous  system so quickly as worry and  anxiety, and this is  why  j-jo   many  Seople are suffering from nervous  eadaches, sciatic and neuralgic  pains, nervous indigestion and general failure of the vital organs to properly perform their functions.  When you get so nervous that you  do not rest and sleep well nights it is  time to be alarmed, for it is very  much easier to prevent nervous prostration, paralysis and locomotor  ataxia than it is to cure these dreaded  diseases.  After years of testing under tho  mo&t pevero circumstances Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food stands in a class  by itself as the most successful nerve  restorative to bo had. This is being  proven every luy by new evidence.  Ask your neighbor* and iriendw  about it and read the reports in thin  paper, from time to time, from pernor.:* who have been cured.  ii>p*j#*'*'  /T  Shot Sunrise  Uccriiil-���������1    want   lo   enlist   in  niit.il    b.uici v   I've.
