The seating capacity of  the building was tased to capacity.  and even much of the available standing room was occupied.  * Preceding the comedy and between  acts acceptable yocal numbers were  provided by Miss B= Smith and R. B.  with contributions of $1.25 to Staples, while Mrs. Stark, Rev. J. S.  nd $1.65 to Mahood and Chas. Moore favored with  the Red Cross. Scholars making a I banjo, cornet a.nd violin nunribei-s tlia.t-  perfect attendance are: ' Beatrice 1weie equally well received, Misses  Dodds,   Aubrey Kemp,   Joan   KempJ E,"ta-  Kclmcs,   Jeanne   Palmer  and  Walter Long, Estella McKelvey.  Master Snsest Sfc&eon treated  about twenty of his young friends to  ^omethihg unique in the way of a  birthday party on Saturday afternoon  last, the occasion being his twelfth  anniyersary. During a series of games  egg hunt was started for  an  Easter  about six dozen eggs that the young  iiobu    tfiui   hidden  throughout  orchard,   and amongst which   was a  golden egg.   Three prizes were offered  in this contest, Maud Botteriii getting  the prize   for  the   girl   locating   the  most   hen   fruit,   Robert   Dodds the  boys prize for the same   good work,  while Richard Penson was the lucky  finder of the golden egg and was also  awarded a prize.   In an egg breaking  contest Douglas Putnam captured the  honors of the day.   The afternoon's  f un concluded with a supper to which  all did ample justice.    Ernest proved  himself a capital entertainer and was  ably assisted by  Misai Stella Stinson.  As a souvenir of the 'event each guest  was presented with an   Easter  egg,  and the yonng host was remembered  by his friends who brought with thorn  useful preficnts each.  Mrs. Piper presiding at the piano.  After the play the floor waa cleared  and the Creston 'orchestra provided  music for a dance that lasted till almost 3 a.m., the dramatic dub serving  lunch about midnight. Returns are  mot yet complete on the sale of tickets  but the intake from both the show  and dance is expected to run close to  $120.     The   cant   for   "Mister   Bob"  Philip Royson -Geo.

Squires as "Mr.  Brown,"  were entrusted the comedy roles, and  they   were- indeed  happily* seleeted.  Patty; with  ambitious  to. be en  the  stage, in the ballet or doing the. heaviest of Shakespeare, availing herself of  every 05>nort-Hnit,������' to disr������!������������.v her talent to "Jenkins," the butler- (who in  turn was equally vigilant in displaying  his manly affection for her), was the  life of the show, and rose to all the  occasions in a care-free fashion that  fitted the part admirably, and with  never a suggestion of anything bordering on the burlesque.     In various  other situations, particularly the telling of her exploit of putting a couple  of c-afcs in the IjastUy def^^ttng-PbUlp-'s  club bag, and the recital of the strike  ultimatum   to   Miss  Luke,   she   was  equally versatile, and  invariably had  the house in good humor..  The other comedy role was equally  well handled by Mr. Squires. The air  of judicial indignity be assumed  when first c? all enjoined by  Patty and Jenkins to 'keep it dark'  that he was Mr. Brown, put him in  right with the aurtienee, and he never  faltered as the situution became more  confused and complicated, putting it  up to liim in turn to be Mister Bob;  then Mr. Saunders, a college chum of-  Philip's; then Mr. Brown, the architect ; back to Mister Bob again, and  ! finally the real Mr. Brown, gave him a  Rogers," neice of Miss Luke, and Philip's cousin. Like Patty. Miss Johnson's part was never a serious one. We  fancy 9he was at her best showing resentment of Philip's action in wagering that his cousin (Katherine) was  better looking than the waitress at the  boarding house he was nuaTtered at  when at college���������and losing the wager  in the bargain. She was quite at  home in keeping Philip in the dark as  to the identity of the real Mister Bob,  and invariably had the part well in  hand, though not getting quite  enough enthusiasm into the yacht |  race incident.

His  work with  Mr. Brown, whom  he be-  liyed to be, and  talked to as. Mister  Bob, found him at his best, surely. He  had plenty of life and action and thus  helped to show Mr. Brown up to good j rustle for the season,  account, us well as interjecting some  fun on his own showing. Throughout  he displayed determination to see the  part through successfully, and his interpretation of a seyeral-sided character was. on the whole, decidedly capable.  Tn addition to the gratifying showing of tho performers individually,  their efforts were effectively supplemented by careful attention to the  costumer;, all of which wore exactly  what the parts called for and admirably suited each and all of the per-1  formers, besides giving a pleasing  touch to the performance- The same  HcrnpulouH cave was in evidence in  th,*' stago wetting.

Shortage is More Acute
Bread Ration in Prance Has to   Ee
Reduced Again
Information received at the food
controller's office indicates that the
shortage of wheat in France is becoming more and more alarming
each week. A further reduction of
twenty per cent, in the bread ration
will soon become imperative, according to M. Maurice Long, minister for
general revicttialling of France. The
manufacture and consumption of
pastry, regarded as a luxury has
been  entirely prohibited  since Janu-

In Denmark a reduction of the
wheat ration is anticipated. The cereal harvest, according to final figures, is only about 62,000,000 bushels, which is 20,000,000 bushels less
than in 1916 and about 10,000,000 less
than was estimated in the summer
when the people were put on bread
The food situation in Switzerland
is extremely serious. A new ration,
far below the consumption even in
many of thc countries at war, has
been ordered. Thc new regulations
allow only one and one-half pounds
of sugar per month. Thc bread ration is only one-half pound a day
and butter ration one-fifth of a pound
; ed, but they strive to defer that day
of doom  to  themselves and  to their
order.    Thc more stupid and less informed, particularly in    the    armies,
iare still blind to its advent.    It will
be seen from an extract we give this
morning that Herr Dernburg's disciple and assistant in America realizes
the truth.    Prof. Bonn perceives that
America  has _ only  to  cut    off    Germany's supplies    from    overseas    to
make her future recovery impossible.
President Wilson, he remarks, "could
thus cancel  the  German victory    on
all the battlefields  and  even    cancel
the  smashing of  England,    if    England were to be smashed."    There is
reason to believe that the justice of
this view is  recognized���with    what
tremors   and   anxieties   may   be   supposed���in   every  influential     German
quarter.    Doubtless it has also dawned upon Vienna,  where it may well
cause searchings of heart moie poig-
thc  nant even than those experienced in
Berlin.    Count Czernin knows that, if
thc  central powers are visited by a
general shortage at the peace, it    is
not  the  stronger  of the allies    who
will remain-the worse off.    Germany
is not the power to  forget that the
skin is  closer than the  shirt, or    to
sacrifice her own interests for a vassal whom she has exhausted.
But in public it is the cue of Vienna and of Berlin to make the most
of the present situation, to enlarge
upon the weakness of Russia and to
brag about their successes iii Italy.
Cotmt Czernin talks no more of the
beauties of the papal peace note and
the Cologne Gazette remarks with
satisfaction that Count Hertling is
now "freed from the bonds" of the

Both   the   United  Farmers    of  Alberta  aud   the   Grain   Growers'   association     of    Saskatchewan   intend    to
use   every   effort   to   secure   returned

When   this sum is in turn  deducted   from   the  $4,068   spent  here,  precisely  $3,001   remains  as  thc sum spcnr in what The Review  has always contended would be the  ideal area for a rural municipality.  To tlio.se who  may   question the  right to only charge the half of the  road    foreman's    salary     on   this  municipality-area   it   would   seem  reasonable to suppose   that  say 25  per cent, of his   time   was devoted  to these   outside   sections,   and for  Uu- purport*- of thi.sarticle one must  not entirely forget   tliesound union  priiM^iple that foremen are not paid  ������o much for  the actual  work  they  ���������io a������ for knowing how.  Now, ^���������crii.loir.ori, granted we had  i,he municipality and much of this  work was done by contract, as it  ..Ivvayr. :,". !.:;���������]:���������:��������� Ir.-oa! ���������rjunieij-'iil  government, aren't you convinced  that you arc getting .skinned good  and plenty under t-he present  ���������nyHtern. There'h no oeeaMion to go  into   detailw.     Yon   have .sufficient  it is good business to short change  yourself annually the difference  between the $3,400 received (which  includes the full salary to foreman)  and the $10,000 you paid in.  If no effort is to be made to end  such a state of affairs, for consistency's sake let's have no more  hard times talk���������or kicking if the  water rates are raised.  'mm  ���������Coincident, almost with this  part of the world going bone dry  comes legal notice from the Goat  Mountain Waterworks Company  that it has filed a revised schedule  of rates which it may charge for  water with the comptroller of  water rights at Victoria.  While there is nothing stated or  implied, we presume the rates are  to be revised upward. In every  other line (save The Review's  subscription rate) this is th*  tendency, and certainly labor and  materials for waterworks upkeep  follow suit, to say nothing of a  little wider margin of profit to  meet increased living costs as well.  With the desire of the company  to increase its revenue these times  we have no quarrel. Generally  speaking the charges have been  moderate, though the service has  not always been ideal by any  means Even at a slightly higher  charge we doubt if many of our  citizens wouih seriously prefer an  "armstrong" pump with its cold  weather defects.  Having conceded the fairness of  the request for increased charges,  we can hardly be classed as an in-  grate when we suggest that the  public is entitled to know exactly  what claims are being put forth to  justify a boost in rates.  Certainly the shareholders are  entitled to an equitable dividend  on the money invested, after  allowance has been made for  depreciation, a reasonable repair  bill, and such "overhead" expense  :xh appertains to such an industry.  Wo would bo even more generous  and concede thorn a per cent, or  two above the usual dividends for  their enterprise in supplying such  a common but very nocossary commodity in a community such as  this.  ligiii-es at your disposal,   and   ...out j      However, before any   increase in  of   you   know   tlie   quality    of   the I rates   is   sanctioned   the   company  ���������';,;���������!: vi;; ���������_*:;!, ".::'! ���������''.'?

If 50,000 Canadian farmers each replaced one  horse with a Ford, 250,000 acres would foe added to the  Nation's source of food supply and enough extra foou  saa.de available to feed 100,000 people.  Just think -what a great service this means to the country at the present time and the benefit to the farmers from  the sale of the food produced on this acreage.  A Ford car also saves the farmer a -week or more of  ���������valuable time each year, which can be 'asetf for further-  productive work. The Ford travels three times as fast as a  horse and rig���������costs less to run and keep, and is far easier  to take care of. With labor so scarce and high priced, tuns  means money, so do not delay in getting your Ford.

Total Quantity of   Light    Shed  the Earth's Great Luminary  One of-the biggest artificial lights  in the world is- the 50,000,000 candle-  power light installed at the Falls of  Niagara. When this gigantic installation was made it was claimed to be  the "nearest approach to real sunshine ever devised by man, and that  may be true. But it is interesting to  ascertain, if possible, how much it  fell short of the actual output of  light by thc earth's great luminary,  and, strangely enough, there are figures in existence which enable a comparison to be made. Yet it may be  stated at once that these figures arc  p.o stupendous as to leave the human  mind absolutely  "in thc dark."  Scientists have made calculations,  based upon careful and repeated experiments, of the total quantity of  sunlight given out by thc sun, and  found it to be a quantity represented  by candles running to twenty-eight  figures���������candle-power being the official  unit.

Yet a  letter published in a London newspaper from a well-known Dutch  scientist reveals something of the  present  scarcity     He  writes:  We have dried strawberry leaves  for tea, roast acorns for coffee. We  are eating a kind of digested sawdust  for bread, aud will have to go on and  invent other substitutes because both  the real articles and the first substitutes are vanishing from trade and  leave us with thc need for finding  other substitutes or going without  entirely.  Fame at the cost of honor is dearly bought;  Hov? to Fight  War Weariness  The   Depressing   Lassitude   Brought  On by Routine  What ss this noxious fever that  threatens to sap our strength and  rob us of final victory? Like many  other maladies, it has persisted unrecognized for centuries, without the  glamor of an official name. It is far  more prosaic and unromamic under  the title of "dish-washing weariness"  or "office-stool weariness," but it is  precisely the same disease. It is thc  mental ache of weariness that the  trivial round aud the common task  arc always threatening to induce. It  is the depressm<ir lassitude broti0"*!*  on  by routine.  xti ti.e ear-y uays oi the world-  struggle, bulletins were scanned by  enormous crowds and war enthusiasm was fed on cable news. Today it  needs the stimulus of a victory on a  Gargantuan scale to rouse a semblance of our former heart stirrings.  It is thus that we are exposed to-  the infection of War Weariness.

The play,  which is of considerable length,  was exceptionally well staged;  the costumes and make-up being  very good indeed, and the  characters well       sustained  throughout.

The maid, with whom, at times,  he carries on a flirtation, acted  capitally-, throwing into her part  an unusual vivacity. Then,  again, Mr= Squires, who impersonated "Robert Brown," the  dandified and artless clerk, might  have been born that character.  The quiet but decided manner  of Miss Mawson as "Miss Robec-  ca," the aunt, carried her through  a by no means easy part with  dignity. The two young ladies,  "Katherine Sogers" the niece,  and "Marion Bryant," did very  well indeed���������the former's expression being particularly charming  and appropriate at times, while  the latter possesses a very clear  and well modulated voice.  The hero of  the  play,   Philip,  showed   plenty   of  energy, and  evidently prepared his lines well.  Altogether, I  was quite  pleased  with the presentation of the play,  but if I might make a suggestion,  it is contained in the word "Inflexion."     A little time spenjt in  the   cultivation   of   "change of  tone" in spe&kine adds materially to expression and is  essential  where the human voice is  an instrument of art.        Bystander.

Now  Lent is over and everything is in  order for a celebration the electien of  the new chief is expected to come off  in the very near future.  H. K. Oatway was a business visitor  at Cranbrook over the week-end, returning on Monday. Business men  there are keenly interested in Kootenay Flats reclamation, and freely  admit that with drainage completed,  Creston would be easily the best town  in B.'0. east of Kootenay Lake.  H.

Len Mawson, who has been at  Yahk, %-Sii latterly Marysville, in  section crews, was  way to Vancouver to report for military service.  Before leaving* Marysville he was  guest at a little sendoff gotten up by  the ladies' club of the town, who also  presented him with a supply of socks,  stationery and some other useful  articles of the sort. Owing to not being promptly relieved he, unfortunately, had but two days at home before  going on to report by April 2nd.  The 160 boxes of apples that Creston  Valley people contributed to the two  carloads that the B.C. Red Caoas sent  to the soldiers in France, reached  their destination safely, and were yery  highly appreciated. From an acknowledgement received by Miss  Lillian Cherrington last week the  fruit got to the troops on March 6th.  Speaking of this particular box the  recipient says that notwithstanding  the long trip and much handling only-  three of the apples were in poor shape.  These were Spitzenbergs, and "were  put up by Jas. "Cook.  The April meeting of Oreston Women's Institute will ne held on Friday  afternoon, April I2th, in Speers' Hall.
