Last Thursday's Red Cross work  session at Mrs. Wickholro's was another of the season's successes, financially, as well as in the way of turning  out supplies. The tea and. proceeds of  a raffle of a chicken donated by Mrs.  Hall produced $5.90.  Messrs. Wheeler and Felker of Portland, Ore., were Canyon City visitors  a couple of days last week, taking a  look over the logged-off lands in this  section.

The service at the schoolhouse on  Sunday, at 2.3o, will be appropriate  for Mother's Bay andfRev. G. S.Wood  will deliver a special address befitting  the occasion.  Jack Norman, who has been working at the box factory here, left on  Monday for the coast to work in the  shipbuilding yards.  . Mtss? Lizzie ^Piggot. who J������as V been  staying with the Misses- Knott at  Canyon City, returned on Monday.  Miss Anna Hagen and Victor Johnson were here for the dance on Saturday, returning on Sunday:  Lieut. Ashley Cooper of Bonning-  ton is home for a few days and will,  no doubt, be trvins* h������f* hrw nower  sprayer which arrived Wednesday.  Dick Dalbum was a week-end yisitor at Kitcheneu, returning Sunday.  A public meeting that should attract  a crowded house is called for .8.30 tomorrow (Saturday) eyening, at the  Auditorium, when the irrigation  question, as it affects Creston Valley,  will be discussed, as well as the 1918  marketing situation.  M, S. Middleton, proyincial horticulturist, yictdria, who until very  lately was in charge of the horticultural work in the Valley,.will be the  foremost speaker on irrigation. It is  a subject be is particularly well qualified so handle in view of his intimate  knowledge of^this part of the province, and more especially as he has  given   the    irrigation   problem   close  o#-.aarl*T gxf lanfja  x^xtx.xa-jr    Xr*   aurvf.  An effort is being made to haye W.  J. E. Biker, the local proyincial  Engineer, present, to take np irrigation  system installation,   more  especially  costs and the b6st system to utilize  here.   He has some data on the Arrow,  Creek water supply, which on a number of measurements at the low water  season was found to give an abundant  flow ior irrigating tne * Biiey.  Although Mr." Biker will be slightly  handicapped through nojfc yet having  been oyer the proposed pipe line route  his experience on projects of this kind  should be helpful, and his talk, along  with that of Mr. Middleton -on the  benefits of irrigation, should be particularly interesting and illuminating  at this. time.  And for good measure the gathering  will be favored with a talk on Co-Operative Marketing of EVuits and Vegetables by J.. A. Grant, the prairie frnit  markets commissioner. Prior to taking up this work VMv. Grant was in the  fruit-growing industry, and after ia  y^-^'s^^i^ilen^^V'Vtuat*.' s|iat.,Ywa&eh-  ing the selling end of the business in  all its details at Calgary and other  cenferes, he surely will also have something that will-be equally worth while  just when the ranchers are at the  threshold, of the 1918 shipping season.  The meeting is under the joint auspices of the Farmers' Institute and the  board of trade. The subjects to be  taken ni, admit oz wsd*������ ^���������^cUwSioi*,**  consequently the meeting wiii start at  8.30 prompt.

For the dance Mrs. Seaman  and Mr. Dennes obliged with excellent  music, and an evening with not a dull  spot in it is reported by aii present.  Sirdar's godspeeds and a safe return  go with Messrs. Barker and Radcliffe.  who were deservedly popular here.

Spraying operations are general all  through here, most of the machines  operating by power. The outlook for  a bumper apple crop was never better.  W. A. Pease was on the rounds on  Tuesday and Wedneseay on behalf of  the Military Y.M.C.A., and the response from Alice Siding is all that could  be looked for at this time of year.  The warm weather last week  brought the water up on the fiats in a  hurry, and for a time it looked as if  the cattle would have to be rounded  up to the hills.

He is still at bush  work at Ear than., Sussex, England,  and &rom present Sppearances will be  there another year, as only about one-  quarter of the timber, mostly beech,  has so far been cut. He states that  Forestry corps recruits over 45 years  of age are being sent back to Canada.  If this order applies to these companies in France some of the local forestry  draft will be affected, as there are a  few of them that were oyer thstt n������*e.  Corp. Young writes in part:  " We are still pegging away in the  beech timber,, two shifts in the sawmill.

They are very good workers,  are Well enough fed, and are only too  glad to be over here. Some have been  prisoners for over three years, and  most all of them can speak some English. Those who are not dressed in  their own uniform are wearing old  Imperial Army clothing���������navy blue  with red stripe on trousers. They  seem to have plenty of money. It i������  nothing to have them offer us half :i  crown to get them a package of cigarettes at the Y.M.C.A. They seldom  get anyone who will do business for  them.  Eyery prisoner has large red patches  sewn on the back of the coat and ihe  legs of the pants for identification in  case of escaping. Some are smart, intelligent men. One was a circus manager in peace time, some schoolteachers, wiinc were business men in Lou  don before the war.

Germany Cannot Live Without Permission of the Allies  French opinion is more and    more  inclined   to   emphasize   the   enormous  value  to   the  allies   of   thc   economic  weapon against Germany. Nearly  every day there is a call here for a  plain statement from the allies as to  the manner in which the economic  boycott will- be used if Germany persists in prolonging the war.  Edmond I.askinc, a well-known  writer on economics, remarks in  Liberie that thc allies hold trump  cards of which no Ludendoril or  Trotszky   can   deprive   them.  "These." hc says, "are thc mastery  of the most important world markets and a monopoly of the most  important raw materials. When the  German chancellor poses in the  Reichstag as the supreme dictator  of war and peace, thc allies can re-  "plj* through the voice of their authorities that although Germany  may be master of Reval and Riga,  thc allies are thc masters of the  world.  "The Germans can pillage and  massacre without our permission,  but without thai permission they  cannot live. Germany must be given  to understand that a resumption of  normal economic relations depends  not only on her accepting the allies'  peace terms, but on thc date when  she accepts them.  "So far as German exports are  concerned, the allies ought to prepare a boycotting system of conditional duration. The Germans ought  to be told that if they agree to peace  within six months their products will  be excluded from the aiiies' markets  for five years only; if tlie war lasts  another year our boycott should continue ten years after thc signature of  peace, and so forth. It would thus  be left to Germany herself to decide  how long the boycott on her trade  would last."

There is more Catarrh in tliis section o'  the^ country than all other diseases put together, and for years it was supposed to be  incurable.

Doctors now advocate an entirely  new method for treating bronchitis  and irritable throat. Stomach dosing  is no longer necessary.  _ The most approved treatment consists of a healing vapor resembling  the pure air of the Adirondack?.  This soothing vapor is full of  germ-destroying substances, and at  the same time is a powerful healing-  agent. It is sent to thc bronchial  tubes and lungs through a skillfully  devised inhaler that can be carried in  thc vest pocket. Simplicity is the  keynote   of  this   splendid  treatment.  CATARRHOZONE is the name  of this wonderful invention that is  dailj* curing chronic cases of weak  throat, bronchitis and catarrh. Every breath through the inhaler is laden with soothing, healing subsiances  that destroy all* diseased conditions  in the breathing organs. It can't fail  to cure because it goes where thc  trouble really exists, and doesn't attempt to cure an illness in the head  or throat by means of medicine taken into the stomach. Catarrhozone  is a direct, breathable, scientific cure.  There is no sufferer from a grip-  py cold or any winter ill, that won't  find a cure in Catarrhozone, which  is employed by physicians, ministers,  lawyers and public men throughout  many foreign lands. Large size lasts  two months and costs $1.00 and is  guaranteed; small size 50c, sample  size 25c, all storekeepers and druggists, or the Catarrhozone Co..  Kingston, Canada.  The Art of Forgetting  Sun Life Leads  Canadian Companies  Notable Expansion Continues to Be  Shown by This Reliable  Company  The Sun Life of Canada's publish-,  ed statement, of 1917 results, which  appears in this issue, is in every  sense a satisfactory document. It  shows assurances issued and paid for  iu cash during 1917 for a total of  over $47,800,000, thc largest amount  of new business ever issued and paid  for by any Canadian life company in  any year. Assurances in force now  total over $311,800,000. Assets increased by ovcr $7,000,000 to over  $90,000,000, the largest assets ever attained bv a Canadian company. Cash  income totalled over $19,288,000. .Payments to policyholders exceeded S8,-  800,000, bringing total payments to  policyholders since organization to  over $69,000,000.  The record of the Sun Life of Canada for 1917 reflects thc highest credit upon the Directors and Officers  of the Company and should be equally satisfactory to thc Company's policyholders.  Thc new* Head Office building oil  Dominion Square, Montreal, has now  been completed and the staff have  been, installed in their new quarters,  where, with thc most up-to-date  equipment, the work of administering the Company's vapidly-growing  business will be carried on with thc  greatest possible degree of efficiency.

Cure    Common    Ailments  Blood Must be Made Rich  and Red  -Nearly  alt  thc    common    diseases  iiuat afflict mankind -are    caused     by  bad  blood-weak,  watery  blood poisoned by impurities.    Bad bipod is the  cause   of   headaches   and    backaches,  lumbago   and     rheumatism,     debility  and  indigestion,     neuralgia,     sciatica  aiul other nerve troubles.    It is bad  blood  that  causes     disfiguring      skin  diseases like eczema, and salt rheum,  pimples and eruptions.    The severity  of  the  trouble  indicates  how impure  the blood is, and it goes always from  bad  to    worse    unless      steps      are  promptly taken  to  enrich and purify  the blood.    There is no use trying a  different medicine  for  each    disease,  for thcy all  come through  the     one  trouble���������bad blood.    To cure anv of  these  troubles  you  must     get     right  down   to  the  root  of  the  trouble   in  the  blood.     That  is  just    what     l->r.  Williams' Pink Pills do.   They make  new,  rich   red   blood.     Thcy  simply  purify and enrich thc blood, and the  disease  disappears.  That  is  why Dr.  Williams'     Pink    Pills    have    cured  thousands of cases after other medicines  had  failed.    Here  is  proof    of  the   power   of     Dr.   Williams'      Pink  Pills to cure.    Mrs.  M.  Stills,    who  resides  near   the  town   of     Napancc,  says:   X  cannot  praise  Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills  too  highly.     I  was    very  much   run   down  in   health,    suffered  from   frequent   spells  of   indigestion,  biliousness,, and   sick    .headache.       I  had an almost constant pain in    my  head and    my    housework    was     a  source  of  dread.    In   fact    f  fell,  so  miserable that life held but little en-  jovmcnl.    I  was advised  lo try   Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills, which    1    did,  and the  result  was    simply    marvellous, and can best be .summed up by  saying  that   thcy  made,   mc   feel   like.  a new woman, and fully restored my  health.    J   would advise  every     woman and girl who has poor blood, oils  run down  in  health   to  give  those  wonderful   pills  :\   trial.     I   am   never  without them  in  the house.  At the first sign that the blood is  cut of order take Dr. Williams' Piniv  Pills, and Mile I lie speedy improvement they make in the appetite,  health and spirit'-.

His  subject was "The' War and thc Future." Hc told of war incidents  "which have come under my eyes or  have- happened to friends of mine,'*  and; he touched on the end of all  wars, which he earnestly believes  must result from this one.  "If two   great  nations���������yours   and  | mine���������wouid agree  to    end    war,, it  ' would be done," he  said.  His   stories   made   the     war     seem  j near and real, peopled' by human beings. -Incredibly neat was the self-  bctraya! of one spy at Gallipoli, who  was unversed in thc intricacies of  English idiom. "It was the day after the landing, April 26," he" said,  "and an Australian captain was up  the hill at Anzac. And an Australian major came to him and said,  'Don't let your men fire to their  front for the next half hour, because  an Indian working party has just  gone up and might be hit.' And the  captain thought this o,dd, as hc had  seen no Indian working party. Thc  major had the number 31 on his !  shoulder strap, and the captain  thought this odd, as only eighteen  battalions, from 1 to 18, had landed.  And he said to the major, T say, are  you fair dinkumr' (which means, Mr.  Masefield translated, straight goods,  on the level). And the major said,  'Yes,   I'm   Major     Fairdinkum."

Hc wants a league  of nations, the complete democratization of the machinery of government  in all countries, limitation of armaments, and the abandonment of all  plans  of  economic  boy Jotting.

The Granby smelter at Grand  Porks has four copper furnaces  going now.  The C. P. R. is now using five  pusher engines out of Golden so  heavy is main line traffic.  More backyard., gardens are  being cultivated in Rossland  this year than ever before.  At the Princeton camp "skin-  ers" who can handle six-horse  teams are getting $6 a day.   .  ,Nelson,retailers claim 25 per  cent more silk is being sold in  that city than was the case in  1916.  The acreage under crop in  the Okanagan this year shows  quite a decided increase over  1917.  Five autos owned in Kaslo  now.    The latest arrival is. a  Studebaker, imported by Fred  Spiers.  For a period of five years,  ending March 31st,   Trail   records 544 births, 95 marriages  and 128 deaths.  Cranbrook's 1918 fall fair  will be on October 2nd and 3rd.

One John Leask has been  honored with the job.  On a fire test at the Nelson  schools last week, the 675 pupils in 13 rooms were all out of  the building 90 seconds after  the alarm was sounded.  By a vote of 69 to 13 the members of the Presbyterian congregation at Cranbrook voted  in favor of church union with  the Methodists of that city.  Many complaints are heard  at Revelstoke of boys breaking  Windows in vacant houses, as  well as" electric light globes���������  some of the latter costing $3  each.  The mines at Rossland great-*  iy reduced their staffs the first  of the month. For a time at  least only development work  will be carried on in most of  them. -  Trail council has just given  the final reading to a by-law  compelling dealers in that tpwn  to sell egg% bananas, ��������� oranges,  lemons, etc-v, by the pound hereafter.

The electric light company  at Bonner's Ferry which offered to* sell out to the town for  $125,000 a few months ago, has  now fixe'd the price of sale at  $80,000 and the council may  talk business.  ���������  The demand for lead is looking up.

"There is not au actor of thcm^all  who can surpass me at this fine  branch of their art!" hc thought  complacently, as he studied thc effect of his work in his full length  mirror. "Who would know that for  the Otto von Roon who sat at that  desk in his shirtsleeves an hour ago?  No man! And now there is nothing  needed but courage���������confidence. I  embrace tlieml"  "In and out of thc ground floor hall  of the chambers in which von Roon  was achieving these triumphs, people  were perpetually passing. There were  many sets of chambers in that building, and some of them were used as  offices; two men who kept an observing eye upon the swinging doors  which admitted to Shaftesbury avenue had therefore a stiff task in taking notice of those who came and  went. Moreover, neither of them  were personally acquainted with von  Roon; all that they knew of him was  by description; they, in fact, were  acting as stop-gaps until a man who  was well acquainted with him came  on thc scene. Naturally, thcy were  anxious and fidgety.  About half past six o'clock _ there  came out  of the    entrance    of     the   i-.-&Lr  ~  11 m* * M0tm-  EAD   afACIl  nn.

He was dressed in thc "  height of fashion; a glossy silk hat  crowned his handsome head, and was  set at a rakish .angle; a warm overcoat, finished off with a luxurious  collar of fur, protected him from the  evening   wind. Perfectly     creased  "trousers���������fell over his  gaitered  boots  of patent leather;  his  whole air    denoted     well-to-do-ncss;       his     gold-  mounted  umbrella   was  as   solid    as  himself.    He walked carelessly away,  pausing for a moment to glance into  thc window of a print ship close by;  standing there, he  fumbled  for    and  drew  out  a gold-mounted    monocle.  Adjusting it to his  eye he  peered at  the goods exposed for sale. Then hc  i^v  [moved off, leisurely enough.,  a    fine-  ^ft  looking,     white-moustached,      whitc-  I whiskered old fellow, apparently    at  ease  with  himself and  the  world.  I     One  of   the   two   sharp-eyed __  men  who  hung  about  looked  at   this  old  gentleman  and-then  at  his   companion.  "That old fellow who came out  hasn't  gone in there  since wc     were  Ur.rr. "     7.f.     cpirf "All{! that's t\VO  hours-"  "May live here, or have gone in  before we came," said the other.  Thei first,, speaker seemed uneasy  and stlspicious.  "I noticed one or two sword cuts  on his cheek���������such as Germans  havc,".hc said.  "Some old officer," lit- said.  "Well, this von Roon may attempt  to escape in disguise," said thc first.  "Look here, I'll-follow that old chap  a bit. There'll be Quivers here in  five minutes. You can manage until  then."  Thc second man shrugged his  shoulders.  "That's some old army man," he  said. "However, do as you think  best."  The suspicious individual hesitated a moment, glancing down the  street at the tall figure, now slowly  retreating  towards   Picadilly  Circus.  "I'll watch him a bit, anyway," he  said. "If I notice anything, I'll follow him up and let yon and Chilvers  know somehow."  And he went off sharply untii he  came within easy distance of the  leisurely pacing figure in front, easily  discernible from the rest of the  crowd by its height, saun.tcringly afterwards. All unknown to von Roon  the chase had begun, and the sleuth-  hound that was on his track was  watching for any sign which would  suggest to his practised eye that his  quarry was wanting to escape and  feared pursuit.  That sign came quickly. Von Roon  soon paused���������again to look into a  shop window. The pursuer, following his own methods, managed to  watch him, and saw that his man had  . no interest whatever in the goods  which he affected to gaze at, and  that his real object in pausing was to  look stealthily back along the short  distance he had come. His suspicion  grew stronger; he    began    to    have  *' Sly overalls and shirts are the best, because���������  they stand the test of the wash-tub���������no starch filler  or cheap dyes to wash out,"  Insist oj* "Bob I/wig*' brand.

Von Roon went on to Piccadilly  Circus, threaded thc traffic, and at  the corner of thc Criterion joined a  small knot of people who were  awaiting thc south-running ��������� omnibuses. Here the sleuth-hound did a  smart thing.

But  in his experience, men who were  afraid of being followed naturally  concluded that thcy were being dog-  o-ed from behind* it never occurred  to them that their pursuers would  get in  front of them. ~  A Victoria omnibus came up; the  sleuth-hound knew by instinct that  his man was going to board it.  Therefore he himself hustled forward as it drew to thc curb; Jiis  quick eye had noticed that thc hsnd-  ermost seat at the top was vacant,  and he meant to have it. We climbed lhc slair and secured it before the  vehicle* had fairly stopped, and leaning ovcr the side and looking back  he saw that thc tall, elderly, military-  looking man had disappeared froi.i  the knot of people. Hc was, accordingly, safe inside.  The hunter and the hunted, rolling  on to Victoria one, at any rate, unconscious of thc other's presence and  interest, were each occupied with  busy thoughts. Von Roon believed  that hc had got safely away from  thc vicinity of his chambers; had his  flight been observed, hc argued, he  would have been stopped before ho  had reached Piccadilly Circus. He  now considered himself safely  launched on his short voyage to the  port of safety���������which meant the  coast of France. But he was not  quite decided as to his exact line of  voyage. He had told Metz that lie  would go by .-���������V.lkcs.om* and Boulogne, hut it had alwayu been von  Uoon'H policy through life to tell  even his coniiilants���������who were usually friends of a moment and osily  f. ���������-:-.;";���������, v:!::!.- I*-:1-- \v:'������������������;��������� :"������rvrv" ���������"���������v*'  ���������that he would do one thing, aud  then do another. And it wan in true  ..i-.:ordanco. with that policy that he  had already decided to travel_by another route than that of which lw*  had spoken to hir. man. Mr would  I/o by tho 8:*I5 boat train form Victoria to Ncwhr-aven. and thence* croon  to Dieppe*. It he eventually decided  to meet  Met:*: at  Calais* next day, Im:  \^ -I' rr  could easily travel along the coast  from Dieppe. But he was not decided about -even that; his main notion  was to get out of England. And thc  course he was taking was the speediest.  As for the man. on the roof of the  omnibus, he was .wondering what his  best plan was. He canvassed that  subject pretty thoroughly between  Piccadilly Circus and Victoria; finally hc determined to see what his  man did when he arrived at that terminus, and to shape his own course  on the results. Meanwhile, he kept  a sharp lookout over th������j side of the  omnibus, determined that the inside  f.nre should not alight and go away  unwatched.
