Optimistic reports are coming in
from all points from Yahk to Sirdar as
to ihe success of the Hationai Y.M.C.
A. drive for funds for 1918 operations
which is fixed for Tuesday, "Wednesday
and Thursday next. The list of canvassers announced last week to look after
the work in these parts will be on the
rounds some one of these three days.
A supply of literature showing by
pictures as well as by story the numerous "Y" activites -has gone out this
week to aii the citizens, and numerous
striking posters are on display calling
attention to the cause, this dates of the
canvass, and the $2,500,000 required for
the year's work.
Locaily pledge cards will be used.and
those contributing can pay cash on the
spot, or spread the payments oyer the
balance of the year any way that suits
them so long as the full amd final payment is made before December 31st.
For the country between Crowsnest
and Kootnay "Landing $10,000 is expected, and of this amount Oreston is .looked to for at least $1,000���this on the
strength of our population as  weii as

ity has sent overseas, and who are enjoying the benefits the *'Y" has to confer.
Eterywhere   the   overseas    soldier
goes he meets ��p with the "Y" in some
don, Paris and some other big cities
the Y.M.C.A. is on the watch for him
to see that he has a clean, healthfu
spite after the arduous life in trenches
or firing line. In the training camps
and billets the-organizion is on the job
with entertainment of all sorts, sports
and athletics, reading and writing
rooms. Every letter that comes from
the boys is on *Y" 'stationery., and for
this writing T^^KTxmii%ny^i6pj^'iiione'
a matter of considerably over $100,000
a year is required, On the way to the
front are the MY" huts where eyery
possible creature comfort is ayaiyable-
to the men in khaki, and as one
English soldier puts it, "Sye, hif it
weren't for the bloody blokes in these
*ere 'uts there'd be a 'elluva time in
this'ere harmy."
Practically everything the Y.M.C.A.
has to offer is giyen free,  and  when
you stop to consider that Canada will
have almost 500,000 men overoeaH this
yerr    the      $2,500,000      asked     for
is about $5 per man���or hardly two
cents a  day���surely a   very   modest
amount to ask for the carrying on  of
such a splendid work at a time like this.
In the line of patriotic effort the
���*S"   gets   closer home  to   the boys
oftener than any other war organization, and when we take into consideration the number of Valley men who are
already over there and those  likley to
tie called up very shortly a call for

particulary   when   payment   can be

A move to facilitate the holding of
the annual farmers' institute convention at Victoria���which has been discontinued of late���without the expense of sending delegates to the capital from each of the i40 institutes in
the province, was consummated so far
as the West Kootenay institutes are
concerned at a conference at Nelson
on Friday last, at Which W. A. Pease
represented the Creston institute.
The plan decided upon is to divide
the province into nine institute districts, and from each of these one delegate will be chosen to attend the central convention each year at Victoria.
Creston has been grouped into District
No. 8, which includes the territory between Moyie and Revelstoke.
Seven  delegates  from the fourteen
institutes in   that   area  were at the
Nelson conclave, which   was presided
over by G. D. Brown of Robson,  and
the delegate chosen for this district is
It. B. Staples of Creston.
.   The modus operandi is for each institute in No. 8 group to forward  him
the resolutions and other matters they
wish brought up at the provincial convention.    Tho other eight members of
the central committee will be similarly favored, and it is felt that the.se
nine men getting togetuer, with  these
various matters sorted   up so  that a
dozen or more institutes   are not taking up time pressing home i.hnil.ir resolutions, mid the other details whore
formerly   much   overlapping   Was  In
evidence similarly regulated, the annual convention can  be held at about
one-tenth    the    evnense   and   just,  as
much good work tie done in less time.
The selection of  Mr. Staples as delegate could  hardly be  improved upon,
and if the other eight representatlveH
are of the same calibre  those hack of
the new and improved   institute, .situation   need   not Worry   about   the   t.ue-

not seem as numerous this season as
in past years.

The long hoped-for start on the
finish up of the engineering features

was inaugurated last week, according
to word just to hand from Bonners

W. J. E. Biker, the provincial
government engineer, and his assistant, Mr. Lawley, along with J. P.

remains uninvestigated by the engineers, and went on to Bonners in
order to also look over that part of
the river, as well as to familiarize
themselves with such information as
the authorities in the Idaho town
have, more especially those who were
associated with Engineer Jones, when
he investigated the whole problem sis
found on the U.S. side of the line.
Interviewed at Bonners, Messrs.
Forde and Biker stated that the
necessary appropriation had been
made for preliminary . surveys and
estimates of the Kootenay valley
drainage project and the highest
officials of the government have announced that if the cost of drainage is
not prohibitive they will favor an
appropriation large enough to carry
the work to completion, providing
that the people owning lands to ho
reclaimed along the Kootenay riyer
in Idaho, will make an appropriation,
the amount of which will be governed
by the benefits to be derived.
This smmner-and fall the Canadian
engineers will gather exhaustive data
relative to the YS[ootenay valley
reclamation project., i*n?l will person -
ally-visit all sections" l>6xh in Canada
and the United States which are to be
reclaimed or which .-ire effected by the
annual overflow waters of the Kootenay riyer.
While it will be the best of good
news to residents of Creston Valley
that a start, on the survey has been
made, it is doubly reassuring to have
the Dominion government officials
co-operating in the effort. While
drainage is largely a provincial matter
the local board of trade has assurance
from Ottawa that if the widening of
the narrows at Proctor can be shown
to be an aid to navigation the federal
authorities are prepared to help out
reclamation to the extent of putting
on a dredge to assist with the channel-
widening operations at that point,
and at no cost to the piovince.
The appearance of ^Engineer Forde
and his assistant on this bit of preliminary work would indicate that
both the provincial and dominion
governments are equally alive to the
desirability of getting Kootenay Flats
under cultivation if fea**ible, and
within reason financially. On the
U.S. side the strongest possible assurance has also been given that they
ait* ready to hold up their end financially and in eyery otherway once a
favorable report is presented by a
joint ho.-.vd wf drassiage engineers.
With nil parties interested in tin-
Work thus agreed, and with the pressing demand upon the provincial
government to get ii report-as toon as
possible with a view to utilizing the
land for a ifturned soldiery area,
everything would indicate that a
dehnite pronouncement as to Kootenay Flats reclamation is not yery
iiiaiiv inonius away.

And How He Was Given    a    Little
Advice by a Merc General
A  eto'ry is being told about a little incident which happened at Camp
Custcv  lately.       General  Penn     v/p.s
passing directly in front of a recruit
whose education had not so far    progressed  that    he    considered    it     a
breach of military regulations  to  sit
unconcernedly on an empty box and
pull  at  a  cigarette  Avhile  an     officer j
was passing hy.    It is a well-known j
fact that the General is a "real man," \
land as usual  he  did not "bawl out";
I the recruit.    Tlie General went a few
j paces   ahead     and   then   returned   to
where the  recruit was  sitting and  in
a  lone  of  friendly  interest  inquired:
"My boy, do you know you are supposed   to  stand  at attention and  salute officers who pass by?"
The boy  replied that he  did,    but
hadn't  noticed  any  officers.
"Well!" said General Penn, "I am
nothing but a mere general, my boy,
but one of these days some second \
lieutenant is going to come along
here and reprimand you severely for
your lack of observation."���Vancouver Province.

The Importance of Pure Seed
Government Pamphlet Will    Be   of
Great Value to Farmers
Pure seed is an important factor
iu greater production. It might almost be said that it is the most important, for weedy seed having once
been sown, it is impossible to foretell the damage that may be done to
the growing crop, or the disappointment that may ensue when gathering
or reaping times comes round. Hence
at. this season of the year, when sowing is in prospect, a pamphlet issued
by the seed Branch of thc department of agriculture at Ottawa, entitled "Cleaning Seed", is most timely
and valuable, Jt tells of the implements that are needed and the
methods that should be followed, especially in the cleaning of grain and
grass seed. A letter to thc Publications Branch, Ottawa, will bring thc
pamphlet promptly and without cost.

A Modern Solomon
A very canny person, President
Krugcr, was once called upon, as
King Solomon before him, to pass
judgment in a matter of ownership.
The case was flint of two brothers,
who had bec.i left a farm and could
not agree as to the division which
had to be made. They agreed that,
rather than take thc matter to thc
courts, thcy would < let President
Kruger decide. President Krugcr
appears to have hesitated about as
little as King Solomon did. Hc instructed the elder brother to make
what he considered a fair division,
and then he gave first choice to the
younger brother. A solution like
Solomon's, both masterly and simple.

Mr. Rowel! makes thc startling
statement that more than twenty-five

No Use Hugging Illusions
The need for more men in thc
army is primarily due to the paralysis of Russia. Many optimists
thought that the obliteration of Russia as a military factor would be
compensated for by the accession of
America. So it will. But America
will not be able to strike with power in thc field for some time to
come; and meanwhile it is thc British and French armies that will' have
to sustain the brunt of fighting. _ ft
is imperative that the British divisions should be brought up " to
strength and that we should have
adequate reserves .in training. It is
no use hugging illusions. Wc arc
up against a powerful antagonist,
who, thanks to the chaos in Russia,
has, in boxing parlance, got "his second wind."���London Dailv Chronicle.

An investigation made prior to thc  agricultural community as a basis for introduction of thc measure has re-  ihc industrial and coiiiiiieiciul pros-��������� ycalcd two ov.lstanding deficiencies  perity of-tlu: country, was the. ob-jin connection with agricultural deject aimed at by the pavliamcnt of j velopnient. In the first instance, thc  Canada when, in 1913, at the in-,response to the teachings of colleges  stance  of  thc  then  minister of agri-   of    agriculture      and      experimental  culture, thc Honorable Martin Barrel!, it adopted the measure "known  as thc agricultural instruction act.  By means of this act the sum of  ten million dollars was set apart for  distribution  among the provinces ov  larms was too slow to effect an im  mediate ;.nd noteworthy improvement in the conditions surrounding  farm life. The second weakness was  found in the fact that little or no  attempt was being made to adapt the  War on Land and Sea  Navy    Is     Helpless    Without  Army's Aid  Archibald Herd, the naval critic of  the Daily Telegraph, of London,  does not-4ook for any immediate and  remarkable change in allied naval  strategy as a consequence of thc  recent changes in the P.ritish admiralty, and in a recent article the Telegraph hc develops his reasons therefor as follows.:  "I have heard it remarked that  Admiral Jel'icoe .did not give the  country much of a show. That criticism points to complete ignorance  of the character of naval power and  its limitations. I do not anticipate  that the new first sea lord will give  the nation a better show than his  predecessor, for the simple reason  that no man, however keen his fighting edge and however anxious to defeat the enemy, dare ignore the permanent factors governing war by-  sea, of the fleet's responsibility to  ���������^ the army, with its long and exposed  lines of communication.  "Ships cannot fight forts. The  short German coast line is studded  with forts, as thc Belgian coast is  also defended. It is the universal experience at sea that in such conditions the stronger fleet can do little  or nothing without the co-operation  of military force. It is a common  error to speak of the navy as one  arm and the army as another; thc  army is the extension of the. sea  power of a maritime country, and its  co-operation is essential ashore if the  navy is to fulfill its mission afloat���������  in other words, compel thc enemy to  fight.  "The. admirals who flew their Hags  during thc last great war had to  maintain their blpckadc in patience  during weary months, because the  country did not possess the military  power which could have driven tho  enemy ships to sea or circumstances  did not favor such a course.  "Today we possess an army which,  including Indian and Dominion  troops, exceeds 6,000,000 men. But  that army has never been employed  as the extension of our sea power in  the sense illustrated, for instance, by  Gen. Sir George Aston, R.M.A., in  his  studies  on  amphibious  war.  "Our military strategy may have  been influenced by events beyond our  control, but it remains a fact that we  have never possessed what Mr.  Lloyd ijeorgc in his last speech described as an army of manoeuvre���������an  army to be used as thc projectile of  the fleet, and discharged at the weakest point on thc enemy's front by  surprise. The Japanese, in their two  wars, were more fortunate, as- were  the Americans. *It was the Japanese  army which forced thc Chinese fleet  out of Port Arthur and Wei-hai-wei;  thc American army compelled the  Spanish fleet to leave Santiago, to  accept overwhelming- defeat by sea;  thc Russo-Japanese war is of such  recent date that it is hardly necessary to recall that Japanese troops,  and not Japanese seamen, captured  Port Arthur, evicting the Russian  fleet.  "The sea controls the land, as our  experience is showing, but the limitations of naval power exist, and apply not only to the German bases,  but to the  Belgian  coast."

With  France's own ������run the 75, thcy are  reported to have surpassed French  artillery standards for speed and efficiency of fire.

Thev are scattered among the "veterans"' of their  own army in "the trenches in order  that they may learn war's lessons  more quickly than in the camps; and  already thcy have proved their metal.  Thc Lorraine line is no sinecure,  no holiday place. Every day sees  small engagements of patrols, raiding parties, artillery duels, as Germans and Americans feel each other  out.

Exports to Germany  Npt only cotton and silk, but foodstuffs as well, have been exported to  German;/ by way of Switzerland in  the past two years, according to latest charges involving Italian deputies and merchants acting as agents  for former German firms. It is  pointed out, says a despatch from  Rome, that exports to Switzerland in  ! 1917  amounted  to  407.000.000  lira  as  iffainst 396,000,000 in 1916 and 314,-  000,000 in 1915.

The  object of these special schools is lo  provide vocational (raining in agriculture and household science.

Canada fcood Board Urges All Possible Garden Cultivation  at Home  Thc Canada food board has entered upon an active propaganda to  increase thc cultivation of vacant  lots and home gardens. The board  makes an urgent appeal to every horticulturist and retired farmer in the  Dominion to place their knowledge  at thc disposal of the various local  cultivation organizers. There is very  great necessity of increased production in every direction and thc board  is anxious that the earliest possible-  start be made this spring. Vacant  lot and garden production is second  only in importance to farm cultivation. The growing of food for home  consumption eliminates transportation waste with attending cost of  labor and fuel. The board hopes  that no one capable of intelligently  assisting in this important work will  withhold such assistance at this critical   stage.  How India Helps  India's Interest in War Has Grown  of Late  A despatch  from  Delhi    says that  in the past few months India's keen  interest in the war has been groAving  remarkably.

Next week canvassers for the  Military Y.M.C.A. will be making  their rounds at every point in the  Valley, in an effort to secure a  total guarantee of not less than  $1000 for this good work, and this  is to. bespeak your serious consider- j  We Cannot Achieve Vicl  ation of the matter, and a cheerful  reception for those who have so  kindly consented to undertake the  rustle for funds.

Four   years     ago    Hon.    Price  Ellison  was in   charge,  combining  the work   with   the department ������f  finance.    When   he  got  into   bad  odor   through     buying    up   some  government   cows   at   a   bargain,  aud resigned,   Hon.   W. J. Bowser  essayed the  role  of  head   agriculturist,  tripling up with the  attorney-generalship   and    finance   department.    Later on he reorganized  the cabinet and Hon. Wm. Manson  became   the   farmers'  right  hand  man  at  Victoria.    In  September,  1816,   the  electorate relegated Mr,  Manson   to   political  oblivion   and  with   the  advent  of the Brewster  government along came Hon. John  Oliver to   superintend the destinies  of   our   basic   industry,   and    presumably to  show   that   he   was a  horse for work,  and as capable an  administrator as   some  others who  had preceded   him, Mr. Oliver also  took on the worries of  a   railways  department.       Now   that     honest-  John not only has a railway on his  hands,   but- has   also  been   blessed  with the premiership as well, he in  turn   relinquishes the   agricultural  portfolio   and   enter   Hon.  E.   D.  Barrow, member for Chilliwack.  The   selection   of   Mr.    Barrow  bounds   those   who    might   over-  seems to be the   very   best possible  celebrate during time off duty.  This latter feature is a speciality  with the "Y" and the great good  it has done in keeping an eye on  soldiers just back from the front  who likely would have gone on a  spree, or worse, had not the better  influences of the Y.M.C.A. been  exerted upon him, has meant very  much to thousands of our troops, if  statements of commanding officers  are to be believed.  And   to the   men   on   the firing  line and dugouts the Y.M.C.A. also  renders  a service at a time when a  friend   in   need   is   a friend indeed.  Here   the   help   takes  the shape of  passing   along   hot   drinks and refreshments   of   thst    sort    to    the  fighters as well-as to the  wounded,  while   the   "Y"    huts   along    the  roads   the   troops   take   getting to  the front,   also   dispense   a   similar  line of hospitality t<������ th*- in������'ii going  up and coming out.  With the exception of the canteens all thin varied service is  i^iven   free   and    given    cheerfully.  from the members now in the  house, and if he displays the same  ability and progressiveness as  minister as he has in his agricultural operations the province will  have good reason to be thankful  for his call to office.  Of all the ministers at Victoria  none have greater opportunity to  show themselves and make good,  and at the same time encourage  and show the way in an industry  that B.C. is eminently adapted to,  and the expansion of which is sadly needed both in our provincial  and thc dominion's interests.  Never forgetting the fact that  the province's financial situation is  not exactly what it should be to  permit of a eplendidly aggressive  agricultural policy, still THE  Review has always felt that Mr.  Oliver was altogether too conservative in such policies aa he  enunciated during his short term  in office. He seemed to want a  sure tiling before branching out,  and   as   in    a   young-agricultural  vith    everywhere    the    suggestion j country liko   this sure things could  that   they're   worry that they can't! only  ho   had     by  oxporionco,    and  ���������a it it  ii,..re .,!'It.   i-.xr.iiic.iuu-.     costing     money,    Mr.  fd.il 1  :.c*,!.(  As Ralph Connor,   the author, ami  himself   an    army   chaplain,   says,  'Tn  the   matter   of   crejitwr**   emu  forts   the   Y.M.C.A.    is   nearer  the  boys than anyone else."

The world shortage will inevitably  continue for years after the war���������with  this continent the nearest source of  supply for the 200,000,000 persons in  Europe who will be* clamoring for fcod.  Measures have been taken and plans  have been formulated which, on the  authority of the Director of Agricultural  Labor, will provide help needed for  harvest.  City and town people who cannot  go on the farms are helping to feed  themselves by growing their own vegetables, so that the farmers may grow  more food for export.  The food crisis calls for the utmost  effort by all the people of Canada, because, as Lord Rhondda says, Food is  essential to  Victory.

A. Revelstoke inerchinant figures it  out that he has losjb ,$200 a week by  cutting out his house to house canvas  for trade.  Silverton and New Denver will have  a joint celebration, on May 24th, and  any money that is made will go to the  Military Y=M,C.A.

Cranbrook Presbyterians hadacongregational meeting on Sunday night  to discuss closer co-operation in church  work with the Methodists of that town.  Little if any food conservation is  practised in Penticton, according to  Miss Hayes, one of the food controller's  lecturers who yisited that town lately.  Being beaten for parliamentary  honors has some compensation. R.  E. Beattie has just been elected honorary president of the Cranbrook tennis  club.  Reeve Smith of Penticton, who got  married last month, has been fittingly  remembered by members of the town  council who presented him with a carving set, two napkin rings and two cut  glass rests. '  The town council atPenticton voted  $500 to help out the board of trade's  entertainment and publicity funds, but  as the amount is much less than  requested the board has refused to  accept the money.  The Kootenaian states tnat the  mining industry in that section is opening up again, and in consequence  business in town shows some impaove-  mint. Last winter was one of the dullest Kask business men have had for  many years.  The postoffice at Kuskanook was  closed the first of the month. Mail for  that point should be adressed to Sirdar.  Twenty years ago Kuskanook had  ten hotel bars, ten gambling hells, no  churches, no schools and one mounted  police officer, with a murder onwe a  week.���������Kamloops Sentinel.

Fugitive  Von Roon, having seen Hilda  Tressingham safely away from his  immediate vicinity, hurried back to  his chambers, cursing the foolishness of women with all the thoroughness he could command.  "Eh-,' well, Metz!" he exclaimed,  once again within thc secure fortress  of his room, "lherc is no doubt  ���������that it is all up! Wc must get  out���������now. There will have to be no  delay, no packing, no nothing. We  must just march."  "And  how?"  enquired  Metz.  Von  Roon   dropped  into  a  and nibbed his fat  chin.  "It will be easy enough for  he said thoughtfully. "I don't suppose anybody knows you���������I mean  any of those gentry. As for mc I  must prepare myself. It is well that  I understand the useful art of malc-  ing-np."  "Your rendering of the elderly  military man is perfection," observed   Metz.    "Nothing  could  be     bet-  "No, I suppose not," said von  Roon. "Very well���������it must be that.  But uow, yourself. You had better  get  across  to   Calais  by  the     night  chair  you/  boat. I will go across tonight also,  but I will go to Boulogne. All things  considered, we had better, not travel  together. I will come on to Calais  some time tomorrow afternoon. Now  go! Go in what you please, and  don't bother about luggage. At times  like these, of forced retreats, one  carries nothing. Now- I shall prepare myself."  Ami still anathematising all women, and one in particular von Roon  went into his dressing room and began to make preparations for his  flight. In thc course of a highly-adventurous life he had learnt thc value and importance of a proper cultivation of the art of disguise, and he  had often gone about London, and  into the company of people who  knew him, so well made up that he  had  passed  unrecognized.

Ont.  no doubt now that hc would be able  to get away from his chambers and  to  make  his  escape   from     England"  with', as''mua.h- case, as in those previous adventures.   At the sanie time,  he did not minimize his danger.  He  felt sure that that high political per-'  soivage _ whom he had referred to as  a fox-like or lynx-like nature in his  talk with Hilda, would certainly  sec  to it that whoever followed that lady  to Shaftsbury Avenue would also see  to it that ���������observation was kept    on  the person she visited.    And for anything he knew, hc, von Roon, might  be better known to the London police  than he. believed himself to be.  Yes, it was decidedly unpleasant, decidedly awkward, more than decidedly disconcerting���������and yet, there was  nothing  else  to be  done but  to  get  away, for the present. He must leave  his   comfortable  quarters,    his     soft  chairs, his books, his pictures, his beloved piano, his stock of    carefully-  chosen  wines,  his  cabinet  of  choice  cigars.    Hc almost shed tears at the  thought   of     such     deprivation;      hc  groaned freely as he began to    strip  off   his   clothes   preparatory   to     assuming the disguise which Metz had  recommended to him.    Nevertheless,  it was not conceivable to him that hc  would eventually lose these good belongings,  these   desirable    properties  which  he  had  accumulated    in     his  convenient  chambers.     No���������even     if  he   were   found  out  as   the  purloiner  of thc  now notorious  secret     document, there was no lav/ in  England,  surely,  which  could rob him of    his  property?    He must go, it was true;  he must do anything rather than be  placed   in   a  prison   cell. But    he  would lock up his chambers; he  I would ask a certain friend to give  out that he had gone abroad for the  sake of his health; that friends  would look after his goods until���������  well, until they could be packed up  and sent overseas to him. For Otto  vou Roon knew very well that he  would never set foot in London  again���������or, at any rate, for a very  long time. That utterly foolish woman, with her i.'.eas of love and marriage, had spoiled everything���������everything!  "She was, I suppose, falling in  love with me vdl the time, then?" he  muttered to himself, as he set about  shaving off his blonde moustaches.  "Bah!���������these women always spoil all  delicate work with that! As if I  had time to consider such matters."  Then he gave himself up to    con-  la   all   cotwtriM.   Amik.

I  cannot recommend  Kidney Pills enough."  Dodd's Kidney Pills arc the greatest of all remedies for weak, suffering women. Thcy cure the kidneys.  The kidneys are thc root of niuc-  tenths of women's ills. Moreover,  cured kidneys mean pure clear blood  all ovcr the body. That means good  health everywhere.  r  L  Wfeen Sbayisag y$ur Plane  Insist oo haviffig an  ft**!***!?  or,  The Fire  Minimize  Peril By UAng  Building Up the Blood  Nervous people who have not yet I  developed a disease that can be recognized and treated by the medical  profession have the greatest trouble  in finding relief. Irritation, headaches, sleeplessness, nervous dyspepsia, all these discomforts make life  miserable, but are endured rather  than run a doctor's bill without definite hope of an improved condition.  Every sufferer should know the  danger of such a condition to the  nervous system. Nervous debility  and even paralysis may result if the  tone of the nerves is not restored.  The  one big fact  ihat  brings  hope  and relief is  ihat the nerves can  be  restored  by  building    up   the   blood.  It cannot be too often repeated that  only through the blood can nourishment  or  medicine   reach   the  nerves.  Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills    make   the  blood   rich   and  red and   quickly   restore vitality and energy to a weak,  nervous   system.     A   nervous   person  who   gives   these  pills  a  trial   is    almost certain to see good results, and  what    is    more,    the benefit  \vill be  lasting    because    the  trouble  is    at-  i tacked at its  root;  building up    the  I blood restores the nerve force. That  I is why people who occasionally take  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills always  feel  I bright,    active    and     strong.      Mrs.  | Wm.

If shame  prevents their paying in person the  money could be sent by registered  letter, addressed to Creston Fruit  Growers Union, Ltd.  xne nrs*> asparagus o* the season  made its appearance for patriotic  purposes on Tuesday afternoon, when,  a quantity of it donated by Mrs. McMurtrie was on sale and fetched the  society $3.70.
