 A,  '-fc  4\hJdkmJ> J*x. *mm?2--%  s^  VOL. Xfl  CBESTON, B.C., FBIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1918  No. 30  Apples .  Chit This Week  ���������tsoy. '���������  Already this week the Union has  loaded out three carload lots of fruit,  largely apples, with some, plums and  pears, and a few crates of ���������* tomatoes.  The first of these  left  on Tuesday.  The Wednesday shinment was almost-  i_ *" '-���������* >*  wholly apples, unwrapped Wealthys  predominating. The car due out to-  '"day will be much the same sort, a  special selling effore having been made  to ship these orchard run on account  of some cf the ranchers being busy  haying and a none too plentiful supply of packers. The stuff, however, is  yery high-grade, as much as 90 per  cent, ones auu twos, and no culls  whatever.  The market's commissioner's latest  bulletin is uot quite so optimiftic as to  prices and especially emphasizes the  necessity of putting up choice stuff  right. While there is quite a healthy  demand for crated stock, there is a big  trade also for the better grades���������and  this class of customer is willing to pay  for good goods.  The Valley Bartlett pear crop while  heavy is not there with the same  quality as in former years and much  of it has had to be graded No. 2.  Flemish Beantys are coming along in  some quantity now and show a decidedly ' better appearauce than the  Bartletts.  Reports on plum shipments show  some improvement over 1917, when the  too-general tendency was to pick the  fruit too ripe, But at that perfection  has not been attained. Recently a  mixed car sent to Brandon, Man., in  whicn were plums that had stood in  the warehouse two days before shipping, the plums arriving in good condition. Later a car to Edmonton,  with a quantity of the same fruit that  had not been in the warehousa five  hours, arrived almost too soft to be  exposed for sale. This fault, however,  is not confined alone to Creston as  each market's commissioner's bulletin  tells much the same story of other  points.  Tomatoes have started to come this  week in normal quantities, and right  now the export of these from Erickson is well over 300 crates a day. This  showing maintained for the next  three or four weeks will see tomato  shipping for the year well up to early-  season estimates.  Market's commissioner Grant is also  complaining of the careless paek of  some of the tomatoes reaching Calgary. He* asserts that in many crates  green and ripe tomatoes come together. He also objects to wrapping tomatoes���������both as being wasteful as  .well us productive of decay and hurrying up of ripening.  In the vegetable line Mr. Grant ad-  yises that cucumbers are a drug on  the market, and that in most other  lines the homo gardens are fairly well  supplying the demand. On potatoes  he is very definite in observing that  spuds kept in B.C. until November  will bring a better price than those  sold now or In October*-.  something worth while doing all  the  time.  A special rate of fare and one-third  for the round trip is announced, good  going October 1st and good to return  up to the 4th. If you appreciate alive  agricultural exhibition with a good  list of special attraction don't miss the  Cranbrook ex. this year.  Fall Fair jPrke  Lists in Demand  fi  Miss R. B. O'Connor of Vancouver  arrived on Monday to take charge of  the Huscroft school, which opened -on  Tuesday with an attendance* of nine  pupils.  Miss Muriel Knott left on Thursday  for Victoria, where she will attend  Normal school until Christmas. She  is one of the graduates of Creston Superior School class of 1917.'  Birth���������On September 1st, to Mr.  and Mrs. *W. W. Caryer, a daughter.  Mesdames Heap, Martin, Hopwooa  and Sin-lister made up an Alice Siding  party that yisited Canyon the latter  part'of the week, and to show tangible appreciation of hospitality extended  her the former lady presented Mr.  Knott with the fine young porker she  won at the Red Cross raffle on Wednesday of last week.  The Red Cross Auxiliary outing at  the Reclamation Farm on Wednesday  afternoon was a decided success and  yery much enjoyed by all present,  which included quite a large number  from town. The Auxiliary ladies  cleaned up $21.85 on thesale of refreshments, etc., while the proceedsof the  raffle of the pig donated by D. G. Lyon went to-$29.  Messrs. "Wood, Hall, Huygens,  Wearmouth, Knott, and Btirns are-  ataougTihose who have secured baying rights on the flats, and with the  exception of the two latter are sow  busy haymaking. It is rather a' long  haul as they are almost a mile beyond  the ferry.  Mrs. Oschnett arrived on Sunday*  accompanied by her two children,  from Vancouver, and school opened  in good form on Tuesday, with about  35 scholars present. The toacher is  domiciled on the old Hickey ranch.  Messrs Wearmouth and Knott, the  local apiarists, have taken aw-iy the  first installment of the 1918 honey  yield, but report the output hardly as  extensive as a year ago.  Mrs. P. Lucier was a Valley visitor  the latter part of the week. She is  shipping the household effects to Lib-  b*', Mont-., where they are located at  present, though they contemplate  wintering in California.  xr a aeiuaiiu xot* prize lists is anything to go by, one is safe in saying  that things are shaping up well for the  Creston Valley fall fair on Sept. 28th.  The agricultural1, association is particularly fortunate in having the cooperation of the directors of the Women's Institute i^ handling the departments they nave taken over. The  ladies are most enthusiastic workers,  and there can be no doubt as to an excellent and extensiye exhibit in the  departments over Vjrhich they preside,  which are as follows: Plants and  flowers, Mrs. Downs. Cooking. Mrs.  G. Oartwright. Juvenile section, Mrs.  J. W. Hamiiton. /Needlework, Mrs.  Cook. Dairy - produce and canned  goods, Mrs. Cherrington.  In fruits and vegetables the splendid  line of sections in which awards will  be made shows the care Messrs. G.  Cartwright, Bevan. and Cook have  spent on this department and they are  manifesting the same interest in getting the ranchers to? go after the different prizes. These ������ame observations  will apply to the poultry section where  a big list of awards is shown in the  varieties of poultry most in eyidence  in the Valley.  Messrs. G. Johnson, W. V. Jackson,  and C. Blair have "certainly evolved  a tidy lot of awards! in livestock, and  with the quite generous prizes offered  it seems certain that exhibirion visitors will be treated to a show of cattle  and horses that- will surprise them  both as to quantity and quality.      , ,  At last Kaslo is again supplied with  provincial police protection. Constable Johnston of Vernon has been  sent there after a vacancy of three  months.  H, Weber, the Singer sewing machine agent at Grand Forks, has just  donated a new machine to the Red  Cross Society of that town for work  purposes.  A boys' gopher killing competition  at Grand Forks this spring and summer resulted in 467 of the pests being  destroyed by six youngsters. The  high score was 179.  Military police Arden of Fernie will  be tried this week on a chargeof taking $70 from some Italians   in   return  for whieh they were not to be  molested as military service evaders,  Fernie at present has neither a  Methodist or Presbyterian resident  parson, and if one of either of these  faiths die a sky pilot from some of the  neighboring towns has to be requisitioned to conduct the last sad rites.  iy  *JU  ���������a-e  About 1000 Tons  Erssksess  In addition  to being good hands *.,.L:.)<W .  ... .     ���������. .*    iA*     ..���������������������������''iifc-^:    [-sJ School re-opeued on Tuesday  compiling prize lists those in charge! j ������,-'���������  .    v.

There were sounds of revelry by  night in the vicinity of the bridge on  Labor Day when about a dozen of the  local young folk aud a few from town  finished off the holiday with a mulligan and pertinent amusements, at ail  of which an  enjoyable time was had.  SSB-t&at0  W. II. Morris returned a few days  ago from a short vacation which he  spent with friends at. Trail, Nelson  and Cranbrook.

Every soi*t of haying appliance is  in evidence, from the humble acythe  to the best in the loading line, and  with quite a large number cf outfits  hard at it, with three and four meu to  the gang usually, if the weather holds  just a little longer there can be no  doubt that at least the 2500 tons of  hay and rushes needee for the whites'  use will be put up iu good shape.  In determining the quantity of feed  that will be needed in the Valley this  will be figured out on the quantity  of live stock showu in the census the  Institute has taken, and special care  will be taken that the quantity of  horse and cattle hay alotted each rancher will be in enact- Dronortion to th**  number of animals of each class that  he owns, with the usual allowance to  those who require it for mulching  purposes.  Exactly the samt   policy   is   being  put into effect with the Indians.   Indian constable Fred Ryckman   arrived  on Wednesday, and is now   making a  census of the Indian horses and cattle.  An arrangement has been made with  the  Indians that  they turn   over to  the Institute any surplus of hay   they  may have.that has been cut on gaver-  nuient-owened   lands,   while    should  the Indians fail to put up enough hay  the Institute in turn agrees   to   make  gpod^iiiy such deficitprovided the In-  stitute^has'Ai; .'surplus   to  dispose   of.  The census of the-Ind ian animals- and  the ���������*aantity. of feiedVthejrjmt up   will  enable the Institute to determine just-  about what quantity of feed the   Indians may.be calling upon them for.  While the sale of   the   surplus   hay  will be taken eare of by the Institute,  it will be necessary to get   permission  from the lands department before any  sales can be made.    J. W. Smith, the  lands department   inspector,   is   still  here watching  proceedings,   but with  all tlie details-, worked out   it is   likely  he will be leaving in a few  days*   His  arrival here to handle the government  end of   the   transaction   has    proven  moat    timely.    Official    intervention  secured for the whites   a   tremendous  area of hay west of the Kootenay River,   without   which   it   is   extremely  doubtful if the required 2500   tons   of  feed could have been secured.  In other directions, too, he has been  of great assistauce in completing the  deal the Institute has made with the  department, as well as lending a hand  in the conferences with the Indians.  Previous experience in mutters of  this kind made him right at home in  shaping up a policv of how to handle  the proposition from the Institute  side, while as government representative- he fheerfnllv conceded everything in the best interestf ������������f co-operative effort of this sort.

The Real Objective of the Allies is the Liberation o�� the World,
And to Show the German Nation that Justice k
Stronger than Tyranny
Mr. Bonar Law, speaking to a
group of parliamentarians and commercial men in London, has expressed the belief that "the fateful hour
of this war is upon us, and if in another three months our - enemies
have won no strategic object, then
their campaign will have failed."
But, while the chancellor of the
exchequer believes that victory for
the enemy will no longer be a possibility if the allies pass through
th�� coming storm without the loss
of Paris or the Channel ports���for
that is what he means by a strategic
object���he sees no immediate hope
of peace. It is not enough to convince the German war lords that
they cannot defeat the allied nations.
They and the German people must
be shown that justice is stronger
than tyranny, that civilization is
more powerful than barbarism. "It
will be fatal to the world and fatal
to the Germans themselves," he says,
"if they are not taught the lesson
ihat war does not pay."
That phrase sums up the situation
in its essential features. Prussia has
been able in thc past to make    war

In a German counter-attack against
positions taken by the Australians
and Americans around Hamel, two
Americans and five Australians were
captured by the enemy.
Volunteers were called for and.the
American party brought back the
captured men and a German officer
while 12 Australians brought the
number of German prisoners to -fifty.
The story of this incident, as told
by an American officer who took part
in  thc righting, follows:
"The Bosches did not bother us
until Thursday night when they
made their counter-attack which was
repulsed. They did succeed in the
first rush, however, in getting hold of

Why Russia Collapsed
The L,es3on for the    United    States

Many political thinkers argUe that
the Russian revolution is the logical
result of forces  which have  been  at
work for  generations.    They say its
roots go down    deep    into    history.
.This  "Tiighbrow"  theory 13   exploded
by & Cincinnati philosopher,    Joseph
Debar, president of thc National Association of Distillers and Wholesale
Dealers.      He traces the    revolution
I and all the miseries in its train to tho
comparatively recent   prohibition    Or
vodka.   The anti-vodka edict, he  ascribes  to ''the  preacher-ridden-crossroads  newspapers    of      the    United
States,  bosBed and owned    by     the
Anti-saloon League."    According   to
Mr-  Debar* s  chain  of  thought these,
backwoods "presslings,"  taking" their
cue from the Anti-saloon League, dilated on the abolition of vodka as the

panacea for all Russia's ills, and
"blathered against the Romanofis"
until Trotsky and thc other Russian
adventurers in exile, who studied thc
United States press closely, believed
their country was ready tor an upheaval, and returned and brought it
about. The way had been prepared
for them, of course, by the# prohibition of vodka drinking1, which destroyed the czar's hold on his people. Mr. Debar utters this piercing
"The Russian army is disbanded

Mr-J. The wars against Denmark in
1864, Austria in 1866, and France in
1870 were all factors of importance
in the making of modern Germany.
If the tremendous "loot" of the Russian campaigns of the past three
years can be retained this war also
will be regarded as having "paid,"
even though in it Germany has invested the lives of two and a half
millions of her people. The one hope

man war lords of this loot, so that
militarism may have no opportunity
of setting the conquests of German
arms against'the blood and misery of
the world "war.
There  are  already  public  men    in
Germany who recognize    the    truth
and who are striving to destroy military  domination.      On  Thursday  in
the Reichstag, while the treaty which
reduces  Roumania to  a  position     oi
economic  slavery was  under consideration, Dr.  Cohen, an    Independent
Socialist, declared that "this treaty is
nothing but  bartering  for  petroleum
and railways.    The treaty is nothing
but   disguised,   perhaps    undisguised,
robbery."    When called to  order he
declared his  belief that "unless  militarism  is  overcome we   cannot     obtain a lasting peace."
That is the real objective of the
allies, the thing for which they are
determined to continue the terrible
struggle. The issue is something far
different from "petroleum, and railways." It is nothing less than the
liberty of the world. Lloyd George
declared the purpose of the allied
nation-? when, after reviewing American troop? in France. he said:
"What are we her for? Not because
wc covet a single yard of German
soil. Not because we desire to dispossess Germany of her inheritance.
Not because we desire to deprive
the fi-Trnan people of their legitimate rights. Wc* are fighting for
the great principles laid down by
PreYcY-nt   Wilson.
all our men at once began yelling1 for
the chance. ' Corp. Raymond Powell
was first put up, and he was given a
squad of men for the work.
The guns laid down a heavy barrage, but the corporal led nis chaps
straight through the fierce fire, and
charged, hot foot after the retreating enemy. The Germans retired to
a strong point, but the volunteers
went in after them.
Our two boys were retaken along
with the five Australians, and the
corporal and his party aiso captured
a Bcsche officer. In the meantime,
the 12 Australians had circled around
aud joined the American party with
the result that 50 German prisoners
were brought back.
That night a Bosche sniper caused
a lot of trouble from a nest in the

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of his marriage, King George
replying to the address of the Lord
Mayor cf London at Guildhall* said:
"I am greatly touched by the kind
references to the happiness of our
married life���a happiness which __ has
been much increased by the unfailing
sympathy and affection of our people. We acknowledge with gratitude
the blessing bestowed during these
years. _
"This anniversary falls at a time
when the shadow of war lies heavy
on the land, and when the very existence of the empire is assailed .by
unscrupulous foes. In this time of
trial it is our honest desire to share
the sorrows of the people and to alleviate their sufferings.
"While our hearts are heavy at
the thought of the bereavement and
distress which have befallen the nation, we have seen with joyful gratitude the whole-hearted response t o
the call of duty throughout the empire. Here in the presence of representatives of the Dominions, the
colonies and the Indian empire, I
warmly acclaim the noble self-sacrificing spirit with which our brothers
across the seas have given their best

There    has been  smuggled  out of
Russia by    Mr. Bernstein, a   correspondent of the New York Herald, a
copy of the Russky Viedomosti containing a letter    by Boris  Savinkofif,
who    was    minister    of war in    thc
Kerensky administration.   This paper
was  suppressed    by    the   Bolshevik!
government as  punishment    for   the
publication   of   this     letter.        Savin-
kofr's   letter,  under   the     challenging
title, "What Have They Done to My
Russia," was in part, in these terms;
"We    arc   vibrating with    indignation  at  the Bolsheviki  decrees    and.
their    ignominious   peace.      We  feel
ourselves humiliated     and   disgraced.
We    are    mercilessly    handed    over
"Kamerad" to anyone.    Nevertheless
we are doing nothing, because we do
not    even    venture    to say, "God be
praised, it was not we but our neighbor who was shot.' Yet we shall never forget that. Lenin, Nathanson and
company arrived in  Russia via  Berlin. The German government  helped
them. The gift demands a gift in return.    Lenin  and  his ^satellites   have
repaid    Germany    handsomely,    first
through the subsidized journal Prav-
da, next by the naked front, then by
Brest-Litovsk,  and finally by an  incredible peace.

War Until That Doctrine Has   Beenj
Beaten to the Ground
Austen Chamberlain, former secretary of slate tor India, speaking at
a meeting of the Victoria League, at
London, said the imperial war cabinet was the creation of the war,
arising out ol" its necessities. He
was confident it would never be allowed to drop.    -
To sit on such a body was a liberal political education. If anything
were needed lo stir ihe people. to
sterner resolve, i) would be found in
lue. speech ��>l von Kiulilui.inii. A
German peace resolution was one
thing, but a German peace, quite different.
"Might made right, and where,
there wa:> no might liuac v\.i;> iiu
right," he asserted. lUitaiu would remain at war until that doctrine has
been beaten to the ground.
tiiat tiie Knssiatis who are "wishing-
for the restoration of the monarchy
are working hand in hand with the
Germans. It 13 no secret that many
Russians dream of the day on which
the Germans will enter Petrograd
and German policemen appear in the
Nevsky Prospckt. Thcy prefer the
devil himself to the Bolshevists.
What have thcy done with my Russia?
"The  Bolshevists  are  our  national
misfortune, but Russia  must be saved, not by our enemies, not by German bayonets, but by ourselves. We
Russians  must again be  masters    of
Russia.   It must  never be said   that .
wc are weak without thc imperial assistance of William and are unable to
organize a state.    It was not to reach
this   goal  that we   sacrificed  streams
of  Russian  blood  throughout     three
years, nor was it in order  to  follow
the program of the Bolshevists or lo
stretch  out  our  hands   towards     the
enemy.        As  sure  as  it  is    treason
against  Russia to  compromise    with
thc Bolshevists, so sure is the agreement with Germany under which wc
arc now living worse treason against
Russia.    Wc must  not    forget     that
the  Russian   nation     does     not    die.
Sooner or later it will dawn upon the
people   of  Russia   what     my     Rusna
ought   to   be,   and   the   treason     will
never be pardoned.    It is an  aberration   lo ludieve. that Nicholas will be
able  to  return.     But when  will    my
Russia   stand   forth     again     vigorous
and free?    I only know one thing.

Beck  Says   Seven  Billion  Dollar Debt Should Be  Cancelled  Prophesying that the United States  after the war will cancel the $7,000,-  000,000 debt incurred by the allies  upon thc entrance of this country in  the world struggle, James M. Beck*,  formerly assistant attorney general  of the United States, recently stirred  about 1,000 Philadelphia business  men to a red-hot pitch of patriotic  enthusiasm in an address on behalf  of the Liberty loan, delivered on the  floor of the stock exchange.  "When this war ends, as it will in  a victory for the allies," the speaker  said, "and Great Britain and France  will say to our government 'the time  has come for us to settle the matter  of our great indebtedness to you in  a more formal way,' I believe our  government will reply by writing  across the paper on which the money  was lent, 'Receipted in full.'  "And when they ask, 'Receipted in  full���������how?' our government will answer, 'By the blood of your sons."  Cheers taking on thc proportions  of a mighty roar greeted the speaker's last exclamation. Many of the  listeners were moved to the point of  tears; strangers in thc audience  shook hands with other; cries of  "Right! Right!" were heard. The  applause lasted a minute.  "I would be ashamed of my country if America would take a penny of  the sums nov^advanced or to be advanced," Mr. Beck continued. "And  as I have said, my profound belief in  thc innate chivalry of the American  character is such that I know this  debt never will be mentioned in thc  way of repayment." ��������� Philadelphia  Public Ledger.  or  sciatic  rheumatism is attended  with pain and tenderness along the sciatic nerve  in the hips and thighs, and ���������  ,  indicates an exhausted condition of the nervous system.

For the first time in almost fonr  yearc The Review made its appearance a, day lat^last waek. The  trouble was due to a break in the  drive shaft of the press, which  occurred just as the first form was  about half worked, and necessitating a shutdown for twenty-four  hours for repairs.  The break was on a rather delicate part of the press' innards, and  a good word is due Fred Charron  of the W. K. Brown blacksmith  shop who did the repair job. The  broken part was a casting shaped  like a slipped -capital! S, and to bolt  and band this, in such a way that  it ii au tne requisite strength and  would work without interfering  with the other parts of the machine  necessitated sdme shaping and truing up almost to the thickness of a  hair���������and the machine was ready  for opex-ating the first time the  mended part was put on. to^.

The publication regularly of Bed  Cross and other such lists is followed in almost every town in the  province and seems to have a beneficial effect, says the Penticton  Herald.  Many persons who otherwise  might forget about contributing  are given a gentle but neyertheless  definite reminder of their duty.  Those who do give can see for  themselves the acknowledgment of  their assistance. On the whole the  publishing of donations to any good  cause is worth while, although  many persons prefer not to see  publicity accorded matters of this  kind. There are many kindly souls  who would rather give in** secret;  others of us are quite willing to see  our names in a list in the paper.  But after all it should not be a  question of modesty or vanity,  shall we say? The point is, will  the regular publication of such lists  bring good by showing just what is  being done, and who are doing it ?  Will it be valuable in providing, a  constant encouragement to the sum  total of effort in the town ? Will it  mean more donations? If such  happy results, are to be achieved,  then by all means let us have the  lists published regularly and often.  This is war time, when what we  want are results, We ^need not  worry over excessive modesty  which at a time like this may  really be false modesty.  How about Kitchen Utensils .

But her emotion had  passed, and linking her arm in his  she drew him on to the verandah.  "You must think me mad, Ton}1-,"  she declared. "And I must have been,  to give way like that.

I suppose thc idea is that 1  killed hiys wife and looted her jewels.  Nice opinion people have nowadays  about the morals of the old county  families."  "One   ridiculous   question,    Tony���������  only to  clear the ground. You were  hundreds  of miles away from  Cornwall that day, were you not?"  "I was."  "You will be able to prove that?"  "I could prove it."  The reservation in the words and  something in his tone caused Mavis  to glance quickly at him. "As I  said," she went on, "I only asked  you so as to be sure. It is conceivable that Son might have come down  from London on an affair of your  dvvn that had nothing to do with  the Morgans. The fact that you had  not done so is an immense relief, for  people have been chattering so; and  now for rny own silly confession. I  behaved like a lunatic just now because for a short time���������a very short  time���������I thought I saw you myself.  You read my evidence at the opening  of  the inquest?"  "1 saw that it was you who found  the poor woman shot in the orchid  house, and that you noticed the  smell of gunpowder. I was.y-ij.d thai  you should have been dragged into  the affair."  "You would feel that." the girl  leaned towards him and laid her hand  upon his knee. "But listen, Tony, to  what. I told no one���������not even to that  oily butler in the first horror of discovery. I saw the man who murdered Mrs. Morgan. He was wearing  that hat, or one like it, with the  same colors, a tweed suit of the pattern you've got on now, and he was  about your height and build."  "Mavis!"  "Yes, dear Tony; but the hallucination soon passed. I must be possessed of the real detective instinct. I  put you right in no time. It all  hinged ou a key."  *" And she went on to describe how,  after raising-the alarm she had gone  round to the further door of the  orchid house, and found it locked  and "the key gone. From this she  had concluded that the man she had  scon could not have been Sir Anthony, who would not have had a key,  or any reason for taking away one  which did not belong to him.  "Humph! Rather a weak argument," he commented. "If I was a  onloitlntinp; murderer I lniglil have  provided myself with a key, and carried it off after locking the door to  avoid pursuit. Bji't it did credit to  your heart anyhow"** as did your subsequent reticence. Do you know who  else saw that counterfcit of mine?"  "All .sorts of exaggerations are flying; about. Mrs. Burbtiry hiis been  especially busy," Mavis made a little  mouc of disgust. "It is all (|iiite  vague and disconnected. I$iil T  heard as late as this morning tliat  old Michael llewr asserts tliat lie  met you on the moor on the evening of the day. There is also a rumor, though I haven't been able to  eon firm it, that you were seen in tin*,  grounds ol" The Court earlier that  afternoon."  Sir Anthony jerked himself out of  the low chair.

The front  of the  cliff was  nearly    precipitous,  and the steps being protected    only  b"������r si riclcet%r handrsil   *^rr\rr^^cri     -.*-->c  necessarily slow.      A little    distance  from  ihe foot,  close  to  the  wall  of  rock and clear of high    watermark,  was the hull of an ancient brig which  had been cast up high and dry in a  great storm of a hundred years ago.  The details of the wreck, antedating the memory of the oldest inhabitant, had become legendary, the one  fact standing out from the mist     of  ages being that the vessel had been  bought  by   one   Melchi^edek   Hever,  a  noted  smuggler  of   those    lawless  times, who  had cut away what    remained of the top hamper and turned   the   hull   into   a  dwellitig     place  convenient: for his illicit trade.    His  lineal  descendant,  Michael, the present occupier, called himself a fisherman and, when the whim took him,  visited the lobster pots which he set  under the  northern    headland.      But  the Hevers had ever been    a     race  apart,  gipsies   of  the   sea, and  there  were  strange tales that the    lawless  strain was still in the blood���������that the.  infrequent lobsters    Michael brought  ashore never kept him in the luxuries he enjoyed.  "By Jove! but the old brig never  turns a hair," Sir Anthony exclaim-,  ed as they trudged along the sands.  "Her timbers are as staunch as when  as a boy I tried to make friends with  Mike and failed. By the way, what  has become of that baggage of a  daughter of his?"  "She is in service at the Court, and  I am afraid that she has not been  improved by association with the  Morgans' London servants," Mavis  replied. "She has thrown over Jack  Trevlyn, your housekeeper's nephew,  with whom she used to walk out. It  is a great pity. Jack is such a decent  lad."  They had come close under the old  hulk and were gazing up at her  wooden broadside in wonder. The  stranded brig had been a familiar object to them both from childhood,  and now, though her-position and  general appearance were the same,  tnere was a subtle change iu her. A  couple of fair sized windows had  been draped with neat lace curtains  which . in the parting disclosed the  scarlet of potted geraniums. In place  of the dangling rope ladder by which  the Hevers had been wont to mount  to the deck of their queer abode a  solid flight of painted -wooden steps  ran rip to a gangway cut in the bulwarks.  "Mike seems to be doing well,"  said Sir .Anthony. "Must have struck  his luck somehow. I'll give the rascal a hail."  .And, raising his voice, he shouted:  "Brig ahoy there. Ahoy there, Mike  Hever!"  "These additions are quite recent,"  said Mavis, while they waited. "I  haven't been on the shore for a fortnight, but there were no signs of  them then. Ah, there is Mike!"  (To Be Continued.)  Competitions for Dairymen  Possibilities   of   Industry   are   Only  Beginning to Be Realized  Despite the remarkable develop-  ment^ of the^dairy industry in the  Prairie Provinces of Canada during  the last three or four years, it is still  capable of considerably greater expansion.

This competition has been  arranged with a view to increasing  the production among the herds of  the province.

This competition will be  open to the patrons of the creameries, who number about 30,000, and  will close on October 30. The announcement of the winners is expected to be made about a month later. The records of all herds will be  taken since November 1 of-last year  and tabulated for the year ending on  October 30, 1918; and the farmers  wrill be required to make declaration  of the number of cows milked  throughout the year.

Wool Being Shipped  A Fair Sample and the  Staple  Uni-  ** formly Strong  The distinction of shipping the first  car of wool this season from Southern Alberta belongs to a Magrath  farmer. The car is said to contain  one of thc best samples of wool ever  sent out of the province.  From Manitoba a car of wool has  also been shipped during thc past  few days. Good progress is being  made with shearing, and wool from  181 farmers has already been received at the government clearing station. Tt is being sorted, graded and  forwarded east as soon as possible.  Tiie iota! clip for Manitoba is now  estimated at 300,000 pounds, which is  50,000 more than was first estimated  and is considerably more than last  year's clip. The. official grader pronounces the wool a fair sample and  the  staple  uniformly  strong,  Each creamery man will submit a  small box of butter for storage each  month for the next- six months, and  the three winners will represent^ Saskatchewan in the inter-provincial  contest to be held during January.  Creamery men froia* Saskatchewan,  Alberta and Manitoba will compete.  _ In the "Ideal Creamery Competition," prizes will be awarded to the  creamery managers for the creameries with the best kept* surroundings.  This is the only competition of the  kind held in Canada, and is put on  with a view to creating interest  among tiie creamery managers in  planting trees, shrubs and laying out  lawns.  A competition will also be held in  which creamery butter will be tested  to determine the highest average  score for the year at the grading station. This will be a test of the but-  termaker's ability to make good butter throughout the year and will not  be based on any one  churning.  Competitions such as these will  not only create a greater interest in  the industry, but should also result  in an all-round improvement in existing methods  wherever possible.  -     -*    * i i.      i.  ���������   ���������  Journalists  "I sec where seven Frenchmen on  trial in Paris for espionage claim  they arc 'journalists,' but* show no  ability to- write."  "Ahem!" said the practical newspaper man. "That seems to describe  a journalist pretty well."���������The Argonaut.  esults,   and   Nothing   Else  Counts  E.  Percy Noel    cables  from     the  British front in France as follows:  The formal modesty of the British Royal Air Force and admiralty  communiques give only a hint of the  high efficiency of^the British bombing' squadrons. For example, a day j  or two ago the announcement mentioned the fact that fifteen tons of  bombs were dropped on the enemy in  the hours when the weather permitted flying. It omitted to state that  the raids were executed despite  clouds and a wind that ordinarily  would have been a sufficient excuse  for the pilots taking a day of rest.  Instead, the personnel waited at the  HP tl (TO ra     *-������������0>rl-vr     4-/T.     o+-**������***f     ���������"*���������**     *-������������������������������������������������������* mi-������.  ���������"-������������������������ ���������i  f-f^x-m   W *    V������^t>Va*-jr m.*-* ~-~~mm.L mm \, C*XjLJf 1J.J.V  ment a change in the sky made possible any results from an aerial attack. When such periods occurred  they departed on their missions.  Something of the cool, determined  and systematic daring which characterizes the British air force on  bombing and photographing work I  learned "on a^ visit to a group particularly occupied with the German  naval bases and munitions works in  Belgium and the entire coastal area  as far east as Antwerp. "Results" is  their motto.  "Nothing else counts here," declared an American officer of marines  and pilot who accompanied me. "The  way these squadrons work is the  finest thing I ever saw. In the  month I have been here my admiration has increased from day to day.  Every one of them, from the highest  officer to the lowest in rank, is imbued with the one idea���������results."  When the weather is suitable,  some of the machines make four  bombing expeditions in twenty-four  hours. They do not fly in formations, but one machine after another,  of the results-^accompltshcd that they  afe responsible for the impetus  which sends aeroplanes out with  the same_ crews and new loads of  oil, gasoline^ and bombs immediately  after one mission is fulfilled. ' "-  A German illusion  .h~  Moral and Economic  Handicap  XT~,A-~    \XIUir.~,     All  itm~~7.r.77r.  ^~ TT. 4...%7X������liJ  Will Labor  One  of  the   illusions    most   sedul-  Atjclxr     nil ffriyq ff-r. in 4~X~-r2-n*-������*nr llSS  been that "after the war" there  would be a return to the. economic  status quo, and that "business as usual" would go merrily on. This illusion has now begun to lose its  charm. Though the allies have been  lax in working out their future economic relationship, there is a broad  understanding among them that Germany and her vassals shall enjoy-  no access to allied raw maetrials, no  "freedom" of the maritime highways of the wrorld, no intercourse  with civiliHed humanity, unless and  until_ Germany shows herself fit for  admission into such a league of nations as the allies contemplate.  There is no possibility of an economic status quo ante beiium.  As we pointed out last September,  in dealing with Herr Naumann's  "Central Europe" scheme, Germany  fears the economic wreapon, not because *Mie may be forced to offer a  price for its removal, but because it  is capable cf destroying the foundations upon which her whole system  of military domination, fiscal terrorism,' and commercial peneration was  based. No compromise is possible  with such a system.  The German people need to understand two main truths. The first  is that while the allied conception of  a league of nations contemplates ultimately the inclusion in it of a re-  ,.        , , . . -   generate Germanv,    it    contemplates  sending down such a continuous ram also the maintenance of an absolute  Ox projectiles on the enemy that the i ^.-an,%.-,-.���������������- her, npon r,ermnnv n������^  Teuton anti-aircraft     get     tired outlthe;r  pre?ent  politicarand  "military  and stop, as they did the other day  after firing for hours without success.  Of course __ Fritz retaliates by  bombing British aerodromes, but  when the enemy machines come over  the weather is so favorable that the  British machines are most iikely to  be out on bombing expeditions, so  that the worst the enemy can' do is  to damage the empty hangars. One  can imagine them returning to their  own aerodromes with reports of  great success and while -celebrating  at the mess being extremely annoyed by bombs from the very machines  they thought they had destroyed.  Photographically, I voyaged all  along the Belgian coast and overland to Antwerp, viewing the country as the airmen see it. Perfectly  clear photographs showed every foot  of the way. I looked into Bruges  habor as it was a few days ago, with  torpedo boats unable to leave, tied ..  up and with fires out. I looked at the.J.(-,cllCra'-  damage.done to the Bruges-Oise munitions works west of the city, the  light of the fire there being seen at  Dunkerque after thc recent bombing,  i looked at Bruges itself, which is  apparently intact. Tt is never bombed, even accidentally.  These photographs  show  so much  her vassals until they have relinquished, clearly and convincingly,  institutions and the dreams that still  inspire them. The second is that the  longer the war lasts the deeper will  be the detestation of everything  German in allied countries aud the  heavier the moral and economic  handicap under which all Germans  will labor, even if they qualify for  readmission into the society of civilized peoples. ��������� From the London  Times.
