The trustees are advertising in the  Vancouver Province for a new principal for the Creston school, although  some likely applications are coming in  due to the fact that the boare notified  the superintendent of education of the  vacancy and be has the school posted  on the official list of vacancies.  Water tights engineer Biker of Nelson, who was here last week stated  that his rcpoit on Creston's irrigation  system will not be available until late  this fall.

This  week the meeting is at Mrs. BrowelFs.  The adjourned school meeting to fill  the vacancies in the board caused by  the resignations of Trustees Caryer  and McRobb, will he held on June  27th.  At     congregational   meeting   after  church on Sunday last it was decided  1 to have serviee for the next few mon-  I ths once every two weeks.  On his way out to service on Sunday  afternoon Rev. Mr.. Bunt had a very  exciting experience, the horse he was  driving shying at an auto on Canyon  hill-, and precipitating ihe pastor, rig  and horse down over tne embankment,  A ������Kick **>*^';ta<*k^Yhad;. to/t^a-e^iisi-^  tioned to get ihe ariiin.it:*and^"rig up  again, but fortunately none were, se**-  iously hurt.  Canyon City school meeting on  Saturday night resulted in the.eiection  of T. Mawson to replace Eric Oleson,  whose action in refusing the school  for national registration in June led to  an indignation meeting and has now  removed him from office. When it  was found Oleson was beaten Trustees  McRobb and Carver turned in their  resignations, the books showing that  they were into the mixup almost as  bad as Olsen, and they did not desert  their fellow trustee in his hour of  i.....!  to ^lifeguard the  wchool board's inter  ests.    A decision in   the  matter is expected by the owl of the month.  There was a lair turnout of niem-  bets for the Women's Institute meeting on Friday night last, the features  of which were .a nutnbe. of excellent  war receipts given by Mrp. Lyne, a  discussion of how best to handle! the  ludict>' department at the fall|fair, and  a decision to help with the furnishing  of ii soldiers ward In the new Nelson  hospital as soon as finances permitted.

There was some resentment  shown over the governments action in  cutting- the teacher's salary here at  end of Maach a matter of .$10 a month  without giving notice.  Raspberries are moving now almost  in mid-season quantity, and with a  little rain this week will be a fine  yield. Some of the picker:* are taken  to and from work by auto by Mr.  Pochin.  Creston School District had a banner  anhuai meeting on Saturday evening  last, the attendance about  doubling  the    seating   space    of     the     room  with many ladies   in   the   audience.  In addition to  the  crowd  there were  several lively features, including a demand for the resignations of Trustees  Ghemngton   and   Crawford,  because  the Mercantile Co. had sold goods to  the school board ; and another resolve  demanding that ex-Principal Broussoa  be reinstated, both of which motions  were well supported.    After these features had been railroaded through H.  Lyne and W. P. Stark  introduced a  motion to adjourn indefinitely, but as  only one  item  of  the regular school  meeting business had  been   attended  to, the meeting decided to carry on.  Chairmau Cherrington of the trustees opened the meeting with a few  introductory remarks and asked that  a chairman for the meeting be named,  those present choosing W. S. Watson  to preside. With him installed the  meeting had a'very businesslike appearance. To his right was C. F.  Hayes, secretary of the meeting, while  to Mr. Watson's right was Trustee  Cherrington and" Treasurer Jackson  with auother table to accommodate  the board's papers���������financial and  otherwise. ,  The meeting unanimously elected  F. H. Jackson to another three-year  term as trustee, and Dr. Henderson  was.chosen auditor, also by acclamation. The report of the trustees >y.as  adopted with little or no discussion,  but some' items in the treasurer's  statement were minutely criticised.  The scrutiny of the accounts revealed that the board had purchased an  outfit for teaching chemistry at $69  which druggist Oatway claimed he  could have supplied for about $30. It  wis;"-'-Usur���������r6rou"?htr'Oot that -floor oil  ���������that the* janitor had bought at the  Mercantile Co. at '$1.25 was to be had  at Speers' for s?i per gallon. Beyond  these two items and an enquiry as to  disinfectants -'that missed fire, the accounts were not attacked, und Auditor  Henderson certified that he had found  the books excellently kept and that  thi'y balanced to a nicety, ami every ..  voucher johnny on the spot.^  The  yote   for   the   year is $'3500.00.  The   estimates   showing   how   it was  made up for the vein* were found o k.  though  some of  the parents wished a  sum added to provide a better heating  system, to  obviate the  closing of the  Hehool on cold days.    This matter will  be taken up   with   the   authorities at-  Victoria,    Ex-principal Brousson suggested   the   purchase of  three   more  chicks but the  matter dropped there.  The trustees schedule of salaries for the  year were finally   adopted.    Some objection was  made   to   ���������*.:*   all  at  once  jump of $20 in the pay of the principal  and vice-principal   but   the gathering  finally adopted the schedule as follows:  <!.

Tins is due  to thc extremities to -which German  occupation has reduced the country.  Iu addition, at least one Belgian is  executed daily by thc German authorities; according to a statement just  issued by she Belgian legation, " as  follows:  "Not taking into account the losses on thc field of battle, Belgium has  suffered heavily in its civilian population through .the invasion and occupation of its territory by the Germans.  "Durhig the invasion of August-  September, 1914, we know the number of victims to be well over 5,000.  For thc following provinces wc have  approximate estimates: Namtir, more  than 1,800; Luxembourg, about 1,200;  Liege, more than 1,000; Brabant, 897;  Hainaut, about 300."  Among the deportees the mortality  resulting from privations, ill treatment     and     underfeeding,     exceeds  I  urana Fleet is  Ready for Battle  now   tfte    tinemy    carried    on    it's  ^      Work in Russia and Italy"'"  Evid'c'mrcs continue to accumulate  of the poisoned propaganda still carried on by Germany,, and that therefore calls for an offsetting one of  truth. A:rW������shington despatch, dated March 11, 1918, says: One of thc  most potent means by which the  morals of thc Russian army and people have been undermined has been  by systematic work in propaganda  among Russian prisoners. Like most  other German activities, this has  been highly organized, and it shows  greater psychological insight than  ���������man3* of the German methods. It is  quite as unscrupulous aud unrelenting as the measures by which the  Germans crushed thc physical powers of their prisoners."  The article then proceeds to describe a Russian illustrated paper,  printed in Berlin, which was industriously, circulated in the Russian-  army, barracks and prison camp. Thc  prisoners read it since they had  nothing else to read, and thcy fell  under the spell. It was circulated to  produce feelings of gloom, hopelessness, homesickness and thoughts of  dear ones at home. Thcy pictured  the life of the lowly Russian people  as it is affected by war; it laid emphasis on the poverty everywhere,  the sick, hungry children, the sobbing mothers, the wan cripples neglected by all and begging at the  cross roads and in the streets. There  was never a cheery line to be found  *T1 A ***RWWWr**ra  Ba !H "U* gk.~M B B  ������HI\i!������P IlAlnES) OF  ������1 t\ -*1P  tup  m SB i".  _?���������������������������*���������  BB  YET   AFFECT    TO    TREAT    IT    WITH   CONTEMPT  mints  "Thc Germans can have a. battle  whenever thcy want it. The strength  of the grand fleet has been well  maintained. Some of thc finest battleships of the United States navy  are now associated with it. They are  largely    the    normal     percentage of  deaths.     Some, too, have" met   death) with  the "submarines,   as    well  on the battlefield, where    thc     Gcr-   mines and bombs.  mans   forced   them   to    do   auxiliary  work.  "The electrified wire which makes  tlie. Belgians prisoners in their own  country, accounts for a great number of victims, especially among  young people who try to escape in  order to join thc army or among  couriers who try to smuggle news in  or out of Belgium. In less than a  year, between August, 1916, and July,  1917, 160 persons had been electrocuted. Since then thc average number of victims has increased, owing  to the strengthening of thc guards,  -and thc putting up of new wires.  "The. death penalty pronounced by  the German military courts for  crimes-of patriotism levies a heavy  toll on thc population. It is estimated that each day one Belgian at least  suffers  thc  supreme  penalty.

The latter, a Boer, replied that thc violation of Belgium  and the sinking of the Lusitania had  been mistakes, aud that the Germans  were reaping the harvest they sowed then. A similar question was put  to Schrcincr by General von Falken  Its tenor was always the same: Ger-'hayn,  thc  former   German   chief    of  not only splendid fighting ships, but j Italian troops  they arc well officered and manned.  The conditions under which the Germans would engage us, therefore,  are less favorable for them than two  years ago.".

Edgar Eusel Mowrer, special war  correspondent in Italy, writes from  Rome under date of- February 17,  1918, regarding the German-Austrian  "poisoned   propaganda"    among    the  55 Per Cent, of 18-pound Projectiles  For British Supply Made  Here  conditions, would not prove fatal, as  to thc bad effect of unsuitable substitutes, it will suffice to recall thc  diseases contracted by the deportees  through the use of raw rutabagas and  the paralysis of brain and the special  kind oi jaundice provoked by the use  of seeds as a substitute for coffee  berries.  Thc situation in 1918 can only  grow worse, since it is undeniable  that the physical standard of the  nation is lowering dangerously, and  that the effects of the German occupation on thc liCaiith of the people  will make themselves felt for a long  time  after thc war."

This  official publication states  that:  "Canada's contribution during the  last year has been very striking.  Fifteen per cent. of thc total expenditure of thc ministry- of munitions in thc last six months of the  year was incurred in that country.  She has manufactured nearly every  type of shell from the IS pr. to the  9.2."  "In the case of thc 18 pr. no less  than 55 per cent, of the    output ' of  shrapnel shells in the last six. months  came     from     Canada,    and   most   of  these  were complete rounds of    ammunition     which     went    direct      to  France.    Canada also  contributed 42  per cent, of the total 4.5 inch shells,  27 per  cent,    of    thc 6-inch, and 2(3  per  cent, of  the "8-inch,    and  16 per  cent,     of  thc 9.2-inch.    In   addition,  Canada has   supplied shell    forgings,  ammunition      components,       propel-  lants,     acetone,     T.N.T.,.    aluminum,  nickel,  nickel  malte,  airplane     parts,  agricultural   machinery    and    timber,  besides quantities of railway    materials, including no less than 450 miles  of  rails  torn  up  from  Canadian   railways, which were  shipped    direct   to  France."

"To increase the infection thc Italians in thc trenches were subjected  to a paper offensive in thc form of  myriad manifestos purporting to convey important items of news to the  soldiers. These mendacious projectiles were shot from guns iu the  form of great shells, which broke on  concussion with the earth and scattered them broadcast; thcy were  dropped by airmen. The lies they  told were stupid enough, but they attacked the Italian in his weakest  point   which is national orido.  Chiefly they referred to the highhandedness of hypothetical British  and French troops in Italian towns.  They told of anti-war uprisings in a  score of Italian cities. An entire illustrated  pamphlet  was  dedicated  to  the      Anglo-French      oppression iii  Italy,   "the  most   recent   British   colony." -j~  Had it not produced its little effect, this sowing of lurid fantasy and  lies would seem but a wild theatrical  <jxtravanganza. But when the sowing was deemed complete, Austrians  and Gernians wrent forward confidently to reap thc harvest.  Prussian Conception of Duty  The Doctrine Is   Amazing    in    Out-  Western Eyes  "Field Marshal Baron von dcr  Goltz,���������thc old pasha," according to  Brand Whitlock in Everybody's Jot-  May, "came to Belgium announcing  the doctrine, amazing in our Ave stern  eyes, that the punishment for hostile  acts falls not only on the guilty but  on thc innocent as well.  "I'or forty ycars the writers aud  thinks of Germany had been a  work upon   this  theory.  "For forty ycars these, doctrines  were dinned into the German ear;  pamphleteers, novelists, soldiers,  statesmen, . scientists, professors,  theologians and pastors, all preached  them. The army became, the avatar  of the state. Fvory man is in the  army, and there is but one law, one  duty, one principle, one religion���������  obey. Thc. private obyes the corporal,  the "corporal obeys the. sergeant, the  sergeant obeys the lieuteant, _ the  captain, and so on up the scaffolding of the mounting giades, until all  power, authority, all privilege, is  vested finally in the generals, the  field marshals, and lhc general staff.  I'ashirs esist only to assure them of  the approval of the Teutonic God,  professors to write, learned justifications of their crimes and scientists to  invent   new methods of destruction."  taff. "Hc, too, failed to understand  why thc entire world should have  turned its thumb against thc Germans." General von Elstermann and  General von Dclmansingcn, who took  part in the Roumanian operations,  also inquired why the Germans were  so cordially hated. Von Dclmansingcn's   comment  is   significant:  "It seems that there is nothing we  can do to make ourselves respected.  I am one of those Germans who  would like to be loved. But that  seems to be impossible. Very well!  Wc will sec! Wc will sec what the  sword can do. When 11 race has  come to be so thoroughly detested as  we seem to be, there is nothing left  but to make itself respected. I fear  that iu the future that must be our  polic3r."  Mr. Schrcincr says he believes that  von Dclmansingen spoke for the  army without knowing it. What he  said was the attitude of the vast majority of officers and men. Baron  Buriaii, the Austro-Hungarian minister of foreign affairs, -who is a Magyar, spoke freely of thc world hatred  for the central powers, but affected  to treat it with contempt. "What difference will it make in the end  whether we are called barbarians or  not? Let them talk!" Dr. Zimmerman*., then undcr-secretary of state  for foreign affairs, admitted that the  Lusitania affair was a bad blunder,  but pleaded that it had not been the  intention to torpedo thc ship in a  manner that would cause her immediate sinking. ' Thc hatred of Germany he described as a mania. "Thc  world must have someone on whom  it can pick." During thc Boer war.  he said, Great Britain was thc victim. During the. Russo-Japanese, war  it was Russia. Today it,,was Germany, and tomorrow it "would be  somebody- else.  Teutonic statesmen and soldiers  apparently realize that they have sinned beyond forgiveness, but they  have a belief, frankly revealed ov  General von Dclmansingen, that a  military victory will win them a respect founded upon fear���������thc only  kind of respect thcy can now hope  for. This vicious mood demands the  continued use of the atrocious and  illegal methods which have earned  Germany the detestation of humanity. But it is well that Germans feel  the accumulated weight of thc  woi-ld's indignation. Thc morale of  the people cannot always resist the  pressure of this enormous moral  force. In thc end thc masses must  demand a reckoning of the leaders  who have brought this punishment  on their heads.���������Toronto Globe.  Urge Prompt Action  Immediate        Allied Intervention  Necessary to Combat German  Grip  Thc  London press    in    general is  urging the necessity of allied    intervention  of a  prompt nature if what  is alluded to as the rapid strengthening of the German grip on Russia is  to be successfully combatted.      The  newspapers  refer    to    Lord    Robert  Cecil's  house   of  commons     remarks  as the accumulating indications of the  inability or unwillingness of the Bolshcviki to  resist the  German    penetration, and  in   some  instances     thc  advocates  of    intervention     reiterate  the  earlier pleas  for allowing Japan  to act.    The insistence upon japan's  disinterestedness  is  renewed,    as    is-  Japanesc loyalty to the alliance. The  Daily Telegraph  concludes  thc  article with these lines: "The statement  at Tokio has made it quite clear that ���������  they have no covetous aims.    In order to  support  the  general  policy of  the   allies  and   especially   to   protect  Siberia     from        Teutonic     rapacity.

Greater quantity of Fish and Higher  Prices  The summary of the fishing results in Canada, just published by the  naval department o������ the Dominion  government, shows that the marketed vahte of British. Columbia fish in  1917 was $8,000,000 jnorc than in  1916. This increase, although partly  due to increased prices, is not altogether so, for a greater quantity of  fish has been produced, in spite of  the fact that the tisual big run of  sockcye   salmon  in   the  Frazer   river  district, which was due in 1917, did  not materialize, so that thc pack of  this grade of salmon was only twenty-five per cent, of an ordinary year.

In the past annual school .meetings have invariably had to wait  half an hour for crowd enough to  open proceedings with. To obviate  this we last week pointed out to  good citizens that it wa& their duty  to be on hand on these occasions.  Saturday night there was a crowd  that almost doubled the seating capacity of the room.  These conversant with the situation were not, slow to realize that  the word that had been passed  around, "Be sure to be at the meet-  in*?," had been heeded generously.  The very first motion submitted���������  moved and seconded by two gentlemen who had not graced a school  subaltern, follows a broadside that,  when the few stray grape shot had  spent themselves, was discovered to  be merely a demand that as how  Trustees Cherjgjngton and Crawford had contravened Part VII. of  Section 10, subsection 4, by soiling  goods to the school, their seats at  the school board should be declared  vacant forthwith, and without fur  (Eftt WM m 9m * ������������ WM W ���������mpi  ���������  er form or ceremony would have  hung the culprits first and tried  them after���������and this depise the  gallant head's just-previous blatant  bray for justice (for Mr. Brousson).  Why Discriminate  About now the meeting began to  wise up some. Why this unseemly  haste to behead Cherrington and  Crawford? The newly-elected trustee, F. H. Jackson, had also sold  goods throughout his just-expired three-year term? True Mr.  Jackson was not now in business,  but surely a crime committed in  January is still a crime in July if  not atoned for ? However, Trustee  Jackson having only been on his  new term half an hour, and we need  him in this business, Brigadier  Moore (again we presume) decided  Everybody's doing it; putting up more fruit this year than ever berore.

Blessings and Curses  With the completion of the  secretary's reading of the trustees'  report���������even before the usual motion to consider the matter had  been offered���������the fat was in the fire  and a few minutes sufficed to show  that, for a part of the meeting at  any rate, the ratepayers were to be  treated to blessings for Brousson  and curses���������and crucifixion if possible���������for Cherrins-ton and Crawford.  At the start the Broussonian offensive moved with ail the smoothness of a political machine. After  the customary oratorical bombardment directed largely-by Mr. Henry  Lyne and Mr. Charles Moore, out  hops a resolution demanding tiie  reinstatement of Mr. Brousson.  Despite the usual custom of voting  by show of  hands, for some occult  action  of  the  same sort later on,  aity were imposed-as magistrates  sometimes do���������said  trustee  might  i%w f\ x~\       4**-k % v*I m-r  vt t%0      mKUIkm S_Jr  ������ *\* Ol *T  >*-M.*Z>mJ  **I orti*l fir!  \j������ "W V* 4- \4m \~4 \J~  which would cost him his seat may-  be\a, along with a tine up to $500.00  or thirty days hard. But why  worry over the possible loss of a  trustee and thereby jeopardize the  success of the close-formation  drive now well under way.  Again the ballot was demanded, j  and with a little electioneering by  Lieut. Lyne, who exhorted all and  sundry to mark their ballots "For"  ���������and the erring trustees had cut  the hostile vote down to 40 to 8.  The Crowning Infamy  This would appear to have completed the day's pre-arranged oarn-  prign for here we have the brigadier's commjad. Cease Firing! in the  shape of a motion to adjourn the  meeting indefinitely, the detail of  naming a date to resume hostilities,  for good and sufficient reasons, not  being attended to. This motion, of  course, revealed the real purpose of  the fire-fast-and-follow-up tactics  of the distinguished leader. At this  juncture the ordinary taxpayer  called a halt.  In a few words .Tames Compton  explained that the meeting was not  staged wholly for the purpose of  singing the praises of Mr. Brovsson  even by such talented  vocalists as  basso prof undo Henry Lyne. Mr.  Compton assured the vaudeville  stars that the meeting was to a  d^rrreo concerned with voting money  to run a school with, and that unless proceedings wore concluded  and a request got on to Victoria  their precocious principal might  have a long wait for his July pay  cheque, to say nothing of a possibility of thc schools not opening as  per schedule.  Thih counter attack found tho  invaders' outposts asleep on duty,  ���������tjiid before the high command could  rally hm hitherto all-conquering  forces the meeting had settled down  to thc real   business   of thc annual  <;<mum, v a-.  to have it by ballot. With nothing  whatever said as to who might  legally vote ballots were handed  men, women and girls alike.  By a show of 50 to 2 the outer  fringe of trustee trenches were taken, and with some acclaim Mr.  Brousson was "urged" to come out  and review operations so far, to say  a "few"   wordy a* to his satisfaction I the      peei-lesR      baritone,     Charles  supplements.

For those who want to know  what hand the trustees had in thc  proceedings be it said that tho  chairman of the board did attempt  to discuss a matter put up to him,  but tho courteous hearing that had  been given his questioner was denied him. the trustee wisely decided  to wait until a moro convenient  season, but when that particular  osAtrk' oi \.\i:,hw.;'.; v.-:i" reached Corp.

This impression is quite incorrect. No date has yet been fixed lor eallmg  upon such men to so report for duty, nor has the question been brought^ before  the Cabinet for decisioit. In view of the need of labour on the farm, it is most  unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after the harvest is  over, although of course the Government's action must be determined primarily  by the military situation.  There is no further obligation incumoent upon young men of the ages  above mentioned who have registered or who do so hereafter, until they receive  notice from the Registrars.  Harvest Leave.       "  Some enquiries have been received as to the possibility of granting harvest  leave to such troops as may be in the country at that time. No definite assurance can be given on this point as advantage must be taken of ship?? as they  become available. On the other hand, harvest leave will be given if at all  possible.  Leave of Absence on Grounds of Extreme Hardship.  ,xt is desired that the Regulations respecting leave of absence in eases of hardship should be widely known and fully understood. Such leave will be granted  in two cases:��������� (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the  man concerned is either the only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a father  killed or disabled on service or presently in service overseas, or in training for  such service, or under treatment after returning from overseas; or the only  remaining of two or more brothers capable of earning a livelihood (the other  brother or brothers having been killed or .disabled on service, or being presently  in service overseas, or in training for overseas or under treatment after his oi*  their return from overseas); brothers married before 4th August, 1314, living in  separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,  in determining th������j fact that the. man is the "only'* remaining son or brother;  (b) where extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional circumstances such as  the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an  invalid father or other helnless dependents.  It is to be noted tha-t in. *vl! theee cases the esoverninp* factor is not hardship,  loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is, members ol  liis family or those depending upon him.  Procedure to obtain leave of absence.  A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of  application have been supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each  bifcluilior*. hr.c bcrn detn!!<**i wW<* *h.ly it i������ to *nve them immediate attention.  The man concerned should on reporting to his unit state that he desires to apply  ��������� lor leave of absence on one or more of the ground-* mentioned and his application  form will then be filled out and forwarded to MiHtia Headquarters, Ottawa. In  the meantime, if tho case appears meritorious, thc man will be pi von provisional  leave of absence for thirty days so that he may return home und e>.ni.imu;  civil occupation while hir> caw*. ii> being filially disposed of.

You'll Never Hold a Big Job Until
You Can Forget Your Own
Petty   Self
In an article called "How I Cured
Myself of Being Sensitive,''' a writer
says in Thc American Magazine:
" 'Wagner, you've got ability,' he
cried, 'but you'll never get anywhere
in this world until* you quit tearing
yourself to pieces! I've watched you
for the past three years; tw-ice I've
had it iu mind to push you up a
notch in the office, and every time
I've passed j'ou and picked someone
else, because 1 know you aren't lit
to handle other men. No man is fit
to handle other men until he has
learned to control himself. You can't,
you're too blamed sensitive.
" 'Little setbacks break your heart.
A letter of complaint comes in from
some customer and you take it as a
personal criticism, and lose a day's
work brooding over it. You see mc
in conference with some of the other'
men, and you stab yourself wondering why you weren't invited, and imagine that I have turned against you.
You heat- that someone who is making more money than you, and immediately all far fields look greener.
You're a. fairly useful cog iu your
present job, and it might put me to
some annoyance to lose you. But
you'll never "hold a big job until you
can forget your own petty self and
learn to laugh when the world takes
a crack at you. Hanged if I don't
think sometimes it might be better if
you were to get out and try your
hand somewhere else.*'

Warm commendation is dxic the
farmers of Canada for thc way in
which thcy have taken thc rebuff administered by Premier Borden. They
have proved their patriotism by deciding, to return to their homes and
to get as much out of their Jand as
possible in spile of the handicap imposed. -'Fanners and soldiers have
much in common; among other
things both have seen pledges given
them by the government broken.���

"But I'll promise to keep thc  thing dark until you give the word  to cough it up. Let's have a drink  to bind the bargain."  But Morgan excused himself. The  dawn was stealing through the closely-drawn window draperies. He was  tired and wanted a few hours between the sheets, hc said.  He had no sooner gone than with  a merry laugh Laura Gaspard stepped into thc alcove from a fold in  the curtain.  "Sir Anthony, do let me be your  pal for that ride,'1 she begged. "I  did not mean to listen, but I heard  enough to make mc long to - hear  more. It ought to be simply lovely.  You arc sure to pull it off."  Thc young man looked down at  the challenging beauty of the girl. It  did not move him in thc least, for a  sweeter and gentler face, far from  this fevered atmosphere, claimed  him. But the offer, considered on  its merits as a means to -winning the  wager, was not to be despised. Laura  already knew the details of his bet.  If he took her as thc witness for  ���������whom Morgan stipulated hc wouid  not have to be accompanied by some  siiale friend hi whom he would have  to confide.      And    Louis    Gaspard's  If only I might  say damn!" the curate murmured as  he propped his machine against the  hedge and passed through a wicket  gate on to the miniature, lawn.  Thc dower house occupied one of  the most delightful spots on the Cornish coast. It was sheltered on its  landward side by a timbered ridge,  while from its quaint latticed windows the view of .the ocean was ever changing but always exquisite. By  walking to the. end of-.the* garden,  which was also the brink of thc cliff,  one could look down three hundred  feet to a cluster of whitc-walled  dwellings whose hardy denizens lived by their toil on the sea.  Thc fishing village on the shore,  tho. great mansion on the. height, and  thc elderly gentleman whose querulous presence had so annoyed the  curate, all boasted thc same name.  The village was the village of Com-  lyn, the mansion was Comlyn Court,  and thc pessimist in the cane chair  on thc verandah was Mr. Archibald  Comlyn, nominal lord of all these  messuages  and  tenements.  Nominal only, in thc evil days  which have fallen ou territorial magnates and which are squeezing them  from the soil of their ancestors. Ar  wc  ,1  all  .-r.rr-, ~r.  have,  "He has,   as  an  you."  Looking back in after years, thc  curate realized that from that moment dated the abandonment of thc  faintly flickering hope that had given  him so many sleepless nights of  late aud had caused him to preach  so many bad sermons. Women do  not.frankly profess "respect and regard" for a man who has a dog's  chance with them.  Thc amusing of Archibald Comlyn  bade fair to be a tedious task that  warm July afternoon. The dethroned squire, a gaunt, thin man with  straggling grey whiskers, in whose  sombre eyes there brooded a. perpetual resentment, received the visitor  with an inarticulate grunt and relapsed into moody silence. Thc - good  Clegg, taking a vacant chair at his  side" tried to make conversation, but  failing to strike a responsive chord,  turned suddenly to Mavis aud inquired if Sir Anthony West was at  Mordrcd Farm.

TV  The Crime in the Orchid House  Thc Reverend Laurence Clegg, curate of Comlyn, wheeling his bicycle  -through the double iron gates into  the carriage drive of Comlyn Court,  glimpsed a man disappearing into  thc shrubbery path which formed a  short cut to the great house half a  mile farther on. Thc curate was  short-sighted, and for thc first five of  1hc ten seconds during which _ the  figure was in view his sensitive  mouth     drooped    with      despooling  came at intervals to shoot rabbits.  The gall-tipped tongue of the wife of  the bed-ridden rector assigned other  reasons to these periodical sojourns  at the ruined farmstead, Mrs. Bur-  bury affirmed that Sir Anthony only  came to Comlyn when he was hard  up and wanted to combine, retrenchment with making love to Mavis.  And truly Mavis Comlyn, the girl  who rose from her father's side in  the verandah to welcome the curate,  was lovely enough to justify any man  in seeking her gracious presence.  Tall and fair, with eyes that reflected thc blue of the summer sea, she  made a sharp contrast, to thc peevish parent whom she tended so lovingly.  "It is one of my father's bad  days," she whispered as she shook  hands. "I am so glad you have  come, Mr. Clegg, because presently  I want to run up to thc court. Mrs.  Morgan   is  very  poorly,   I   hear  Dollars on Side of Justice  Early in the war Lloyd George was  quoted a-s saying that thc nation with  thc last hundred thousand dollars  would triumph.

Bread  is thc basis of social order. Everything that makes life endurable m  times of stress depends iipon bread,  i'copic have bartered their souls before uow for a crust of bread.  Indeed, starvation has reached  such a. point in certain districts ol  Russia that members of the impoverished classes are selling their wives  and children for bags of flour.  Is it not essential then that \va  save white flour lest our aiiies __ in  Europe reach  such a pitch as  this?^  Wc have the wheat on this continent. The United States and Canada  alone  are  in a  position  to  meet  wheat,  flour  freely! It is" time for "potato flour  to be given a trial in order that increasing quantities of standard flour  may  be  saved.    Hcaithy men      hava  horses and well-kept wagons, all of  which belong to our copper-colored  fellow citizens.  And the lure of thc plough, or  rather the hire of the profits that  follow the plough, has taken possession of many of the most intelligent  of the Indians in thc West, who, perhaps arc to be found chiefly in Alberta. At any rate, it is the record!  of certain tribes in Southern Alberta  that can be pointed to with best effect as proof of the success "Poor  Lo" is making of his farming operations.  In Alberta there are only a little  less than nine thousand Indians���������not  quite one-third as many as there arc  in Ontario, which has thc largest Indian population of any province. The  best Indian fanners in Alberta, and  probably in thc whole West, arc the  Blood, Peigan, and . Blackfoot bands.  Let thc superintendent general of  Indian affairs tell how these bands  are getting on.    He writes:  "The  Blood    Indians    during    the       _r  ii.tx-    i    .Un:~  D^aavju   \jx    xyiv,    uy    111a.11  and without any financial aid from  the government of Canada, produced  65,150 bushels of wheat on 2,606  acres, and 26,980 bushels of oats on  768 acres.

Somewhere  in holy writ we are also told that aii  men are liars. British jurisprudence  maintains that a man is innocent until  he is proven guiltyt and before any  such verdict shall be recorded both  sides of the case must be heard.  Last week (under '* A Plea for Justice" too, be it said) Principal Brousson  nut  with  malice aforethought,   however, we hope proceeded to sit in as  judge,   jury   and   star   witness in the  trial of   an   action    against Trustees  Crawford   and   Cherrington.     Being  the r������aiy disinterested citizen conversant with the school matter f rom start  to  finish,  a statement of case is certainly due   and,.we  trust,   will not,be  , found lacking in  interest even by the  Broussonian extremists.   Here we are:  counter In the Mercantile _ store that  was so depressing and *and:gn:88d.  On the point of the Inspector's reports Mr.Brousson pooh! poohed! such  a thing as an unfavorable report.   In*  clause three of his plea he says Inspectors DeLong   and  Calvert   gave him  ���������'excellent  reports." . Trustee   Cherrington informed him that Inspector  BeLong was not in a position to give  any report as he was here about the  third week after school ' oqened.   As  to Inspectors Calvert, Trustee Cherrington said Mr. Calvert's vebal report  was not a gocd one, and among other  things cited the fact that Mv. Brousson was not up to expectations on literature.    Here are the reports:  Inspector   Deliong  writing a^n June  cipiine is good their judgment only  goes sosne fat*. They are here but  half a day in the case of Mr. Delxmg.  These reasons- enumerated were all  submitted to Mr. Brousson, tout he  would haveY'none of them. In fact  toward the end of .the discussion Mr.  Brousson. threatened to haye his solicitor handle the -matter-tor him later  on. Jnstice'by a3V means, even at the  school district's expenee.  As to that Petition  Now, as to this much discussed so-  called Parents Petition, though really  more properly called the Principal's  Petition. Firstly it is dated, and, I  presume, started on its rounds, on June  14th and was all signed up with seyer-  al explanatory clauses attached, and  vc-iiu-v for consideration ou june utii.  In four days���������and one of them Sunday  Inspectors' Reports  Inspector   Delioi  29th, twelve days after Mr.  Brousson  said  he   (DeLong)   had given him an } mark you, this document was peddled  '���������excellent report,"   a������iu  New as to Reasons  Much of  Mr,   Brousson's  "plea" is  that at the  board meeting in-line he  ' was unable to obtain reasons for his  dismissal.    Off hand two rather   important reasons were given,    1. That  his discipline both in  the school and  on   the   playgrounds    was   far   from  good.    2. That the Inspectors' reports  were not satisfactory.  To substantiate the play ground dis-  " ciplineit was pointed out that'owing  to the fact that one Ernest Ennerson  had not- been  given a little kindly attention, the bully element had made  it so disagreeable for him that he had  to leave school.    To   this   Mr.   Brousson's defence was   that   the Ennerson  ��������� complaint was not without some justification. At the meeting on Saturday  night Mr. Brousson was more frank in  the   matter,   stating   that   Ennerson  ���������   had been imposed upon, but sought to  ��������� save himself by saying that earlier in  the   year   Ennerson   had   bullied the  : small boys, and that when he got some  of his own medicine the account was  square. Are we to understand that  bullying and ruffianism is winked at  by Mr. Brousson so long as all hands  get their share of it some   time during  : the term ?  Soi-rt~ I^ftyT*B R.40nmg%w%m  It was stated to Mr. Brousson that  his disipline was faulty when he found  it necessary to expel for two weeks  rive boys last winter. The youths  were caught smoking on the premises  and instead of ad������iiiiiisiering.pun!sh-  ment that a red blooded principal  would hand out in these times under  the circumstances, Mr. Brousson  transfers his responsibility on to the  parents. In his "plea" Mr. Brousson  says that "no boys were expelled."  is he quibbling, under the delusion that  dismissing for two weeks is not expulsion.  Mr. Brousson was reminded that in  the schoolroom cheating was preaval-  attention had been eall-  the   board   chairman,  wulch repurfc  was only obtained after an 3.G.S. caii  had gone out from  the trustees, says:  "There is great improvement in the  discipline as compared with the year  previous. ��������� Pupils show more interest  and have made a good start in the~  majority of subjects. Botany lessons are rather interesting. In algebra  pupils are quite accurate but careless  about form. More careful supervision of all exercises is needed. Drawing is taught well."  There's tlie report.    Mr.   Brousson  teaches botany and drawing well, but  is none too proficient, in algebra and  his disipline is better than  his predecessor's���������beautifully indefinite though  by no means  worthless.    "What about  a   dozen    "cither   subjects.    One  may  fairly ask why not some line on them.  Surely the high school inspector's are  looking into   the handling   of   other  subjects   than    botany,  algebra  and  drawing.    Suspicious     people   would  say the inspector's  silence  was ominous seeing the teachers have a bit of a  fraternity. ^  Now for the "excellent" report of  Inspector Calvert which, be it said,  was sent confidential  to the trustees:  "Canadian history well taught; geography very fair: spelling good; class  backward in literature and grammar.  Principal has good discipline; tone is  good; pupils work" well, but are backward in some subjects. Principal's  work should improve with experience  with work in this proyince,"  Despite Mr. Broussoh's protest note  Mr, Calvert backs up Trustee Cherrington as to inefficiency on literature  as well as grammar. And don't miss  that final sentence.  These are Different  Nothing like having a contrast to  show up the imperfections in anything. We follow with Mr. Calvert's  report on Divisions II. and IV. Here  they are:  Division IV. (Miss Hardman):  "Excellent work is being done in  this Division."  T<U.a  a taaj.  ed" to this  by  hat schhilars  (Vice - Principal  Division   is   well  Division II.  Smith): "This  taught.

Mr. Brousson sidesteps this by saying  it was trivial. When the matter was  pressed home Mr. Brousson still eyad-  ��������� d the question by saying there was  cheating in every room. Right here  we haye three reasons, all told to Mr.  Brousion at   that   meeting   over   the i  lutin' but shallow phraseology with  Mr. Brousson ? If he, too, is doing  "excellent" work why not use those  words and be done with. And, do not  these reports substantiate the trustee:*  charge that thc inspectors' reports  are not good.

The document calls for Mr. Brousson's re-instatement, therefore it is essential, to haye the petition intelligently signed, that the trustees reasons  for dismissing Mr. Brousson should be  explained to those signing it before  they could be in a position to impartially endorse the sentiments expressed  in the heading. Now, then, as Mr.  Brousson had not these reasons his  soul so thirsted for until June 17th  how could he give them out to those  to whom he presented the petition.  A few Qnestiosss  In the handling of petitions of this  sort the Canadian custom is for some  friend of the party to be benefitted by  the petition to do the circulating of  the document. Waiving the point,  however,   we   wouid   jnsfc like to ask:  1. How many people did Mr. Brousson tackle, with the petition ?  2. Did other members of Mr. Brousson's family conduct a follow-up campaign on prospects he and his helper  failed to land.  3. Did Mr. Brousson procure the  signature "X" J. Koiuano?" Frank  Romano declares he signed no paper.  Mrs, Romano's name is Mary.  4. Is it not a fact that at Canyon  City the petition was passed about by  one of Mr. Brousson's scholars, and,  thereiore no statement oi tne case  couid possibly b������ made.  4. Will Mr. Brousson deny that he  was the only one at the school meeting when the. petition was presented ?  And will he' tell us if even Trusted  Jackson had any words hi commendation of this precocious document.  Mr. Brousson's 'short stay in Canada  ���������nay be urged as an excuse for his unbecoming aeal in the matter, but is it  not a fact that, regardless of the detail  ae to who peddled .the round robin,  the common and manly practice in  such cases is for gentlemen' who sign  such papers to present the petition in  person themselves, and back up their  written praise by such verbal effort as  is customary on such occasions.  Fair Weather Friends  Mr. Brousson was left absolutely  alone in the presentation and consideration of this petition. None so poor  as to do him reverence in a tithe of  stress. Some o%\ them may haye been  like tho disciple Peter; who "followed  the Master afar off," but certainly  none were within hail on this rather  momentous occasion.   Why ?  Is there a MAN in the Valloy who  would take a position that had to be  gotten by a p'-i-Hor-ally-passed petition  that signers thereof decline to present  and back up with their presence. How  the mighty are fallen when school  principal's go out cap in hand, as it  were. What "tone" it will add to his  teaching.  What could the board do but charitably order "the petition of Charles  Moore and others" fyUul���������and hope,  snch unprofessional conduct would  not be beard of by tho inspectors or  education department authorities.  Instead of traducing two trustees,  rather should Mr. Brousson bo iu  prayerful attitude thanking for  Ids impending deliverance from tho  friends who failed.

In these days of democracy does Mr.  Brousson insist that those who speak  well of him are to be believed on sight,  while those who question his infallibility shall be classed as tattlers and  grumblers? Since when has Mr.  Brousson been installed us arbiter in  such causes?  Go from .Bad to Worse  If Mr. Brousson, in an effort to saqe  himself this term, will malign three  children in an emergency he might  attempt to similarly discredit half a  dozen later on. Right or wrong the  principal isn't paid public money to  utilize his time raising doubts as to  pupils' honesty even were he in possession of all the facts. We admit the  temptation is great, but in his position  such action does not tend to iniproye  false to ail coh*tSer-aed  not  to make  some statement.  An Appealr~vJ-i3-i-<s  Justice t^ stl means.
