 1*.  f  t'~.  h"  H.T  f*if^  Vol. X.  CRESTON, B. C, FBIBAY, AUGUST 2, 1918  *KT^  XS\J.  OK.  x~Kf  vision in Sc-oool  Trouble Shortly  . The knockout blow in the school  controversy may be looked for any  day now. Since the annual meeting  both sides have pursued a policy of  watchful waiting, pending the arrival  of Inspector Oalyert, who was here on  Saturday and a couple of days this  -week looking over Enissute - boofts-  treasurer's accounts, invoices, interviewing trustees and,1 on Monday  morning, receiving a delegation of  Broussonians.  Although making no official statement of any sort, the inspectorVgave  trustees to understand that after looking into every nook and corner of the  affair he is quite satisfied that the  trustees had acted entirely within  their rights at every turn, and there  seemed no ground to hope for disqualification.  One ray of hope stiii glimmers for  the Broussonians, howeyer. Does the  request the Board seryed on the ex-  pt incipai in Xotay asking ioi* ms resignation constitute a legal notice of dismissal? In the past it has been so  taken, and judging by the roar that  went up from the Broussonians it  would seem that Mr. Brovsson so interpreted it.   Here is the letter:  S    : May 31,1918.  O. BrOUSSO*!    **1cn.  At tht May meeting of the trustees I am instructed to write you asking for your resignation as principal  of ths above school. This action is  unavoidable owing to your services  haying been unsatisfactory during the  iuj2* wo*ald not be entirely popular. Miss  Faulkner's services were dispensed  with after the same fashion as the  principal, and if his reinstatement is  in order why, of course, so is Miss  Faulkner's, and as a teacher is already  engaged for her room it would look as  if Miss Faulkner would have to be put  in charge of the primary room���������something not exactly popular in view of  last tsrai's work.  And, further, if these two were not  legally dismissed, Miss Bertha Hurry,  who was let go or. the san*e process ������  year ago, might find it conyenient to  get after tha school board for wrongful dismissal.  So,   when   one    looks   the   matter  square in the face it might seem that  the    Bronssionrwns     have   uncorked  something more far-reaching in its possibilities than they anticipated when  they cut loose   with   their  offeneive.  But, while anything may eventuate, a  careful reading of the correspondence  would indicate that the trustees are in  slightly the better position.    The annual meeting   vote for   reinstallment  secured    under   other   circumstances  might be sufficient   to   turn   the tide  and return Mr. Bronsson to us on the  crest of the   wave   but in View of the  previous  rulings,   and   the complications that will ensue if a reinstatement  is gx^anted we are inclined to think the  trustees have about 51  per cent, control.   The whole case has been submitted to the education department and  a decision is looker! for next week.  5  flaying oil  To foe llegiilated  From present appearances, it would  look.as if hay catting on the' flats will  be supervised at 'east to some extent.  Yesterday J. W. Smith, an inspector  from the lands department at "Victoria  arrived in tpwn, joM' ihe purpose of  looking into/the whole matter, and if  the situation warrants action he is empowered to allot areas on which the  different ranchers-Jnay cut, and he  may ������!sc fix upon ,'s. starting to-cut  date and make all.. other arrangements to see that the hay is cut to the  best advantage and that a rancher  does not cut on another fellow's area.  After Mr. Smith'has thoroughly investigated ������the proposition it is likely  he will call a public meeting so all interested can come to some conclusion  on the best plans ti������ operats and once  a plan is   adopted, and   approved   by  ^. * ���������*~ 1     X* *" *11 1^ J5 1  JUIlil StiVsJl I.'cgttlail'aOlJS   win arc    SuiLI.  He is stopping ^.t the Creston Hotel  and will be pleased lo meet all who  wish'io discuss the haying proposition  with him. ������������������".-.  case Trustee Jackson,   taking  his cue  from t.h<g ex-principalj seemingly,' with  parrot-like fidelity shouts malice���������and  camouflage.    Coming from other than  Broussonian quarters one might resent  the   implication that unfair motiyes  actuated the statement we presented.  But is Trustee Jackson himself entirely without malice in this transaction?  For instance, the public would like to  know   how    the   Broussonian   forces  came   into   possession   of the information as to items and prices on the account rendered   the  school   board by  the   Mercantile   Co.?   Why   was enquiry directed against only two items  ���������one or  which   cost   a.' triSe higher  than the same stun: could be had elsewhere.    Who tipped off the Broussonians to these and other things.    Only  the writer and the three trustrees saw  the account; and we feel quite certain  nobody got into  The  Review office  unawares to look them over.    And, by  the way,   if  Trustee   Jackson   had a  conscience void of offence how comes  it that the report of Inspector DeLong  which was mailed him from Victoria  SkiVm  iinsrs iu  Creston has cevtainly been favored  this season with the  former  and the  latter rains which are so highly recommended by scriptural writers.    Along  about June 25th we had the first named, which certainly went a long way  in helping give us those 8000 crates of  strawbersies.    Oji Thursday   and Friday hist along eonaes two   days   more  of it with alike benefitiai effect on the  raspberries which, from present appearances will run well up to a thousand  crates more than 1917, and the market  shouting for more tnan   can be shipped.    We. are again in the midst of another heated   spell,   however,   so the  rasps wiii not go much beyond the end  of the week.  The postal strike which has tied up  mail oinmunication from prairie points  is hindering Union pooling operations  vJ..v"1������    .-v*-.  as a.n ueutus ou Siiipiuenus are  ncu to  nuavu   ...������>   axaca.aaar.a&     111..1     xaaju.     .  .vwaiw. -  on June 29th, was not available to the ������hand, although clients are sending the  term.  MAUGE and RESIGNATIONS  Local schools were out of luck entirely at the recent  Entrance  examina-  The School Act provides that notice I tiohs.   Of the   three   candidates none  of dismissal must be given 30 days be  fore the close of the school term, and  -if it should be held that the* abi>ye let-.  ter IsVnot a' really and truly* dismissal  Mr. Brousson may still be with us.  -   But, there are some sidelights which  nsay proye iiiuminaiiing.   A^ofo having  received hie resignation as per request  at the June meeting of the Board Mr..  Brousson was  let out in yery definite  terms, and the department of education was notified iu this wise :  Creston, June 10.  Alexander Robinson, Esq.  Supt. of Education, Victoria, B.C.  At the May meeting of the School  Board the secretary was instructed to  write Miss N. E. Faulkner asking for  her resignation from the teaching  staff due to an unfavorable inspector's  report. Also to write Principal Brousson asking for his resignation owing  to his services haying been unsatisfactory to the Board.  It would seem that the department  considered that good and sufficient  notice had been served on the obdurate principal for the following letter  was in due course received from them:  \ ictoriu, B.C., June 24  Secy. School Board,  Creston, B.C.  I am in receipt of your letter of  the 10th inst., .and note that your  Board has decided to dispense with  the services of Miss N. E. Faulkner  and Mr. Brousson from tho teaching  staff. ��������� I shall place these positions on  our list of vacancies and direct tlu? attention of disengaged teachers to  them.  Alexander Robinson,  Runt, of Education.  With tiuch authentic corrobosatiye  testimony frOiii the bii|.it*rii.u*iiuciiaj of  education there was no hesitation in  forwarding formal notice that bin service- wore no longer required to Mr.  Brousson at tho end of June, after  this fashion:  J urn* 20, 1018  Not having been favored with  your resignation au principal, as per  tin; Board a loiter of jyiay3jHt, at the  .June meeting of the trustees tin* secretary wtki> "uai.UucLcd to write you notifying that your services uh principal  aro dispensed with at the end of tho  present school term.

Jackson rather Weakly rallies to the  support of the essprincipal.  As to admissions and omissions we  would just call attention to the fact  that the trustee uowhere even hints  at a "parents" petition, nor does he  breathe a word even as to reasons not  being given his protege. The abandonment of the^-.;items should not be  oyerlooked, as they were two of the-  three high cards that the ex-principal  played both in his "appeal for justice"  as well as his oration at the annual  meeting; The other points raised,  however, while "'trivial* in.most eases  will stand some examination.  First we haye put forward the inspectors' reports and the examination  results. There is no need to dwell on  the former. We published them three  weeks ago, and if Trustee Jackson is  content to accept the report on Mr.  Brousson as excellent, especially when  compared with the reports on Miss  Hard in an and vice-principal Smith,  w.ill���������there are none half so blind as  those who will not see.  On the examination results the trustee  is travelling   on   firmer   ground,  though the footing is none too good at  that,    The Entrance  results are now  to hand and Mr. Bronsson passed three  ont of fiye���������60 per cent, efficient.    In  the   High   School   he   made   a  clean  sweep; five out of fiye.    But. some of  the lustre is taken off the performance  when we remind  that three of these  five had had  two  years at the work.  Far be it from us to deprive Mr.Brons-  son of full  praise  in this connection,  but taking the exam, results by and  large has hc much more license to pin  medals on  himself than the Walker-  ton  Scotchman who-boasted that ho  and   Lanchy and   Dnngall   and   four  other.': had licked a man frntn Paisley  who was a deyil to fight.  Trustee .Tack*-viii \vo.il,l havo 'i.s believe that "with regard to playground  discipline we have had lean trouble  than for years past." All of which is  a misstatement of fact. Tlio last year  Principal Miihterton was hen* we had  not u singlo case of HiiHpeiislon, while  dm-hit* bin th'Ht year HiiKperntlnnH wore  fewer than Mr. BroiiHwon hud. The  M'hnol records demonstrate all this.  Trustee Jackson to tlie contrary notwithstanding.

Such action ii*i|rtu, have  added tune,   but. certainly mot   "tone"  chairman of the board until 7 o'clock  ou the eyening of their annual naeet.  ing, July 13th? It may have been a coincidence that the mails were so slow  about that time, but it does look suspicious; the letter was enquired for at  a school board meeting on July 7th.  And will this trustee be good enough  to tell just how far his time and school  board talents were available to those  who framed up part of the proceedings at the annual meeting. People  who live in glass houses���������should never  rush into print.  "Under all the circumstances one  does not wonder at his concern about  resigning and letting the people express an opinion.

Like Artemis Ward's coon,  Mr. Jackson is an amusin' cuss, in  these latter days of the school mixup.

The association is supported  in its work by grants from governments and institutions interested in  developing the resources of Western Canada. Its functions are largely educational, although by centralizing public opinion with regard to  irrigation problems the association is  also able to bring to bear an important influence toward improving  the conditions under which irriga-  tionists  must  labor.

Hurd, widely known  writer on naval subjects, 'n an article appearing in thc London Daily  Telegraph.  "They arc merely large submarines  such as wc have been building," he  says. "They do not represent a triumph of German engineering any  more conspicuous than a triumph our  shipbuilders have achieved. It was  because German submarines of about  800 tons could remain at sea oniy a  short time, were very uncomfortable  and thc conditions were very telling  on the nerves of the crews that the  enemy evolved a large type modelled  on the Dcutschland. This type having been designed, it was decided to  indulge in exaggeration in order to  impress thc world.  "What is the. truth about German  submarines?" he continues. "These  cruisers displace not 5,000 tons, but  about 2,000. They arc not 450 feet  long, but less than 300 feet. Their  speed on thc surface is not 28 knots,  but about 12 knots. When submerged  they do not travel at the rate of 15  knots per hour, but approximately 10  knots or so.  "It happens that wc have heard  more about the operations of German submarines than about the British submarine, because thc enemy offers few targets for our submarines,  while wc offer thc enemy thousands  of targets every week. The percentage* of hits by our submarines is, in  fact, about three times that of thc  Germans, which in itself indicates thc.  high standard of efficiency of British  ship design, construction and operation. The work which British submarines are doing is magnificent.  Our officers arc handicapped by  many things besides thc small number of targets offered thorn. Thc  Germans are able, to maintain their  campaign only hy defying every law  of every nation and ignoring the ordinary dictates of humanity.

Great Britain's total population  has so far remained at about the  same figures, gains balancing losses.  The. rate of increase in the. United  States has not been affected at all.  As the war goes on this growing disparity in thc losses of population  between the central powers and the  peoples fighting them is likely to  increase. If the war goes on into  next year thc population of thc German empire, on which reliance was  placed for thc enlargement of Germany's prosperity and industry, and  for repairing thc injury lo trade and  commerce after thc war, will have  lost ten per cent, of the numbers and  a still greater proportion of its industrial strength.  The German empire, which in June  1919, should have had seventy-two  millions of people, will have no more  than sixty-four and a half millions.  Germany, as a whole, will have five  per cent, less population than when  the war began. Of those that have  been killed the greater number were  men in thc prime of life and energy,  whom Germany could least spare. By  deaths in thc battle zone, thc German empire has lost at least three  million men. Thc birth rate has  sunk to such a figure that by next  year the number of births will have  fallen short of what they would have  been had there been no war by three  and a third million of children.  In the same period the annual  number of deaths among the German  population has, owing to the stress  and anxiety of thc war and of sickness and disease, -which have been  aggravated by hardships and food  ! troubles, increased by one million  over the normal.  But this is perhaps to be regarded  merely as    weeding,    and   no   great  biological  loss.  Much of the mortality among children    and among the  civilian    population    as a whole has  been    caused   by  the  way  in  which  the food   supply    of    Germany    has  been mismanaged in the interests ot  the land holders and of thc  farming  classes to the. detriment of thc poor.  Thc land holders and    farmers have  prospects,    while    thc    poor  in   the  towns have gone short on bread and  potatoes.      On   the  other   hand,     because    of    thc  liberal   separation  allowances  and   the    high     wages,  the  vital    conditions     of     the      growing  classes in   Great   Britain  have    been  better  since  thc  war  than   when  the  war began.     By next year  the  German empire will be 7,025,000 lower in  population   than   it  would   have  been  had    thc  war not  taken  place.     The  vitality of    the    peoples    of Austria  and  of  Hungary    has   suffered   even  more.     This, perhaps, was  to bo. expected.    The  peoples of Austria will  be eleven  per cent,  poorer iu    numbers next year than if tho war    had  never  taken place.      Thcy    will    be  eight per  cent, less in numbers than  thcy were in  1914.    Hungary will be  still worse off.    Il will have a population   nine  per  cent,   lower  than  before  thc war,  nnd   thirteen  per  cent,  lower than if there, had been no war.  As  the  war continues  so   will    these  losses increase.  Meanwhile, despite the losses  which England has suffered in the  war zone, thc British population has  been growing. By the middle oi  ',0in tlii^ population will be only  throe per cent, lower than it would  have boon without war. Groat Britain, in "i9iv, will havo a lai'-ei population than in 1914.

Calves grown on  farms should have grass pasture provided for them and should be fed  some grain, preferably oats, during  the first five months of their life. In  taking them from, thc cow and raising them by hand on skim milk, you  are preventing them obtaining but-  terfat, which is a natural part of the  food of a young animal. You must  replace this, insofar as it can be replaced, by the use of a grain rich in  oil fed to -the young animal on grass,  the grass itself, taking the place of  thc butter fat in milk to a small extent. A calf grown upon skim milk,  grass, and- a small amount of oats,  will be a profitable, healthy, strong,  and rapid growing, animal, while a  stunted calf will require much more  feed next winter to get him started  towards making good gains.���������G.

According to German papers considerable irritation has been caused  in Germany by thc rapidity with  which Enr-bncl has been throwing  men into France, and criticism has  been directed at thc admiralry. In  a vigorous defence, Rear Admiral  Karl Holhvcg points out that the activity of thc German navy is subject to certain geographical limitations.  "A voluntary attempt to remove  these limitations," hc argues, "would  signify a heroic but useless suicide  for the German ileet. The distance  from German harbors is too great  for the regular and frequent attacks  which alone could cause continuous  interruption of Channel traffic. A  small German ship cannot long remain in the Channel, for submarines  and mines would reap a rich harvest  among it" and,-after being cut off, jl  would be..compelled to accept battle  with overwhelming British forces in  unfavorable  circumstances."

Currants, raspberries, **" strawberries,  saskatoons, gooseberries and similar  fruits grow wild on the prairie, and  when placed Under cultivation yield  very profitable crops. Many farmers have also had considerable success with apples and other fruits.  During thc last four years at the government Experimental Farm at La-  combe, Alberta, some ten or twelve  different varieties of crossbred apples have been brought to maturity,  last season being the third year in  succession in which these trees bore  fruit. They also grew very satisfactory crops of raspberries, currants  and strawberries, year after year on  this farm. Thc raspberries grown  here in 1915 were worth more than  j $500 per acre. There are, however,  instances on record of raspberries In  Western Canada yielding a net profit  at the rate of over $800- an acre.  These are excellent results for a  phase of farming that has only received a particle of the attention it  deserves.  An idea" of the quality of the fruit  grown in Western Canada may be  gathered from the fact that a. large  proportion of the small fruits used  in the dining cars and on the hotel  systems of thc Canadian Pacific Railway���������where only the finest qualities  would be acceptable.���������-are grown- on  thc company's supply farm at Strath-  more, Alberta.  ������0  /n  UiC  Army  WHO    ARE      SHOUTING     THE  PRAISES    OF    DODD'S  KIDNEY PILLS  Hi.IILH ^ CUTTER'S BLACKLIfi fJLlS  mmf.mma amp a a I.on-priced, _^    ^etfM    ������_   13        mW*  iSr^m  ~7ciciTx7rihV^~W^^i%%~i^S^S\^  *B     HB  g| of -western   stock- Sk^}������KJJjVv    >a  f^jlC**%ji|   ������^f..>^t l\\i~rSmmM0m\t    "  .^ Writetoboofelrtandtestis-ssla!:-. ^ soSlS?. 18  ID-cose pkg.BiackiegPiiis.

Stimulating' Production  In Manitoba  Farmers  Assisted in Obtaining Better Seed Supplies  Excellent work has been done by  a staff of about forty special workers  sent out by the Manitoba department  of agriculture during the latter part  of April. With a view to increasing  the number of acres to. be broken  this season, these men, who are all  experienced farmers, were sent to  districts where they were well acquainted in order to give special encouragement. Their instructions  were not so much to exhort in any  public way greater production, but  to ascertain conditions on individual  farms, and il" found possible, throngh  co-operation or in any other way, to  assist production, to sec that assistance was  given.  in a number ot cases farmers have  been assisted in obtaining better seed  supplies than the* possessed.

We haye a decidedly equable climate, and highways that  are always travelable. We believo  we have men of enterpribe who  would take on the work of handling  the conveyances to bring the scholars into a central school here, and  the education  department   stands  eral election she espoused the  Unionist cause, and the utterances  of her dignitaries were undoubtedly  a faetor in bringing about the  sweeping victory obtained.  One of the early-bird haymakers  tells us that our ideas on haymaking on Kootenay Flats are all right  in their way, but that they don't  weigh much.  While he believes that an impartially carried out system of fixing a  sta,rfcing-to-cut    date    and     even  t.*he  ready to pay half  the  expense of  present Misses Evans and Proctor of  Calgary. Alta. They were among the  iSirdar callers at the metropolis this  week.  Earl Swanson and two of the Gobbet boys of Creston came in the latter  part of the week en route to Kuskan.  awardinc*  m stress to cut on is th  real thing, we overlook the fact  that cattle are allowed to pasture  on the flats, and as they are in the  habit of picking out spots near  home in order to beat them too it  an early start is inevitable for  those not in a position to make hay  some distance away from home, but  more especially by those who need  a little of that sort of feed to carry  on with in August in years like  this when the clover crop is not  heavy, and there is onIvr one of  them.  Another detail that he calls attention to is that as soon as the  pasture is available the Indians  herd all their stock on this side of  the river in order to give the hay  on what they term their lands  every possible chance to grow. And  in the matter of cattle pasturing it  is really the Indian critters that  are by far the more numerous.  The Review wiii be glad to  have all other information for or  against some sort of control of  these hay lands. If reclamation is  not to be undertaken in the near  future the agricultural department  should be called upon to take whatever action is necessary to make  these lands produce a maximum  hay crop at the minimum expense  to local stockmen.  ' In these times when feed is so  essential, high-priced, and scarce  even then, these thousands of acres  of hay should not be left to take  oare of.themselves enfcirelv.  such conveyance cost.  Doubtless were a consolidated  school established here along with  it wouid come a full-fledged high  school���������something we feel the need  of more and more as the years  roll round.  While we believe such a school  wouid effect some saving on present  salaries paid, and assure the best  possible  staff of teachers, even if  Nelson visitors last week' included  the Misses Eyans and Proctor and  Mrs. Loasbyi who were down to see  the city in its best bib and tucker  during irrigation congress week.  the cost were  higher-  txis  Central  school would be a good investment,  particularly for the outside school  sections.  They tell us you can't teach an  old dog tricks.    Human nature is a  bit the same.     If you would train  up a child in the way he should go  get him going early, and keep him  moving.    Failures at examinations  are largely responsible for the ail-  too   prevalent   weakness   amongst  childrer   to   want   to  quit  school.  And in this workaday world where  for the average child the schooling  period is all too brief continued and  continuous progress is the more to  be desired.  The Saturday Evening Post | ������k for a few days fishing,  which, on a well-deserved reputation of giving the finest lot of reading matter for live cents, built up a  circulation of almost 2,000,000, has  just raised its price to 10 cents a  copy. In addition to big circulation the Post had equally generous  advertising rates and patronage,  and is  issued   from a plant where  production  costs   are very lowest,  If under such seemingly favorable  operating  conditions the Post has  at  last  found a 100 per cent, in*-  crease   in   price   imperative   how  about the weeklies and dailies that  still pound along on before-the-war  subscription rates, and a shrunken  advertising patronage as well.

As  to Trustee Jackson's charge  that The Review is  actuated by  malice  in   the stand it has  taken  against ex-principal Brousson, it is  worthy of some note that although  as far back as May 20th we were  in a position to announce his dismissal, yet not a word was saio\,in  the   matter    until   Mr.   Brousson  rushed into print with it himself in  his fearfully and wonderfully made  plea  for   justice,   which   appeared  July 12th.   And be it also said that  the matter was public propsrty before  the  end of  May. due to Mr.  Brousson delivering the scholars in  his room a characteristic discourse  oh how badly he had been treated  ���������on or about May 30th, and even  before he had been officially asked  for' his resignation.    Too, don't forget his "appeal for justice"  had a  week's start on our "justice by all  means,"   surely a courtesy a thor-_  oughly   maliciously-inclined   editor  would not   have   allowed   in these  times when falsehood travels express  and truth goes slow freight.  in the Tuneful, Musical Play oi Tu-Oay  Brother Hayes of thc Creston  Review kindly take notice  that the Cranbrook Herald  now comes out on time, and  you are permitted tinder the  new management, sxs formerly,  to clip from the Herald .ir  many of its breezy items as  you require to give the snappy  tone to THE Rrvtkw for which  it has earned a good reputation.Cranbrook Herald.

of February and the whole of March.
New deals are being put through
daily. One of the largest that has

4,800 acres situated about twenty
miles south of Grassy Lake. Alberta, which has been purchased bv
Idaho parties for $192,000. Part of
this land is already cultivated, aud
the remainder will be broken this
summer ready for crop next j-ear.
A firm of land agents, handling irrigated land, claims to have sold land
to the value of a quarter of a million   dollars   during  the  last   month.
In thc I.cthbridge district there
will be almost two million acres in
crop this year. In 1915 nearly fifty-
million bushels of grain, mostly
wheat, were produced^ on 1,300,000
acres. It is the hope of every Southern Alberta farmer that this great

No medicine receives such great
praise from thankful mothers as do
Baby's Own Tnblcts. Once a mother
has used them for her little ones she
will use nothing else. The Tablets
are a mild but thorough laxative.
They regulate the bowels and stomach; drive out constipation nnd indigestion; cure colds and simple fevers; promote healthful sleep and
make     teething    easy. Concerning
them Mrs. Onier J-eBleu, Madding-
ton Fulls, Que., writes:���"I am weil
satisfied with Baby's Own Tablets
and will always use them for my little ones." The Tablets are sold by
medicine dealers or by mail at 2*5
cents a box from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine   Co.,   Brockviile,   Ont.
The Pill That Leads Them All.���
Pills are the most portable and compact of all medicines, and when easy
to take are thc most acceptable of
preparations. But they must attest
their power to be popular. As Par-
melee's Vegetable Pills are the most
popular of all pills they must fully
meet aii requirements.- Accurately
compounded and composed of ingredients proven to be effective in
regulating thc digestive organs, there
is no surer medicine to be had any-
wee re.

The Cologne Gazette, commenting on the Alkanatara bridge ovcr
the Suez Canal, says that as a whole
Great Britain's campaign in Mesopotamia and Palestine has been far
from being a failure. The new-

must be admitted that it facilitates
the transport of supplies to Palestine,

Machine Shearing" and
Dipping* of Sheep
Demonstration to Farmers in Correct
With wool at its present high
price, and thc demand for far more
of it than is now available, the proper shearing of sheep, aud the promotion of thrift through ridding
them of all insect pests is a duty
that cannot be neglected. That this
fact, together with thc fact that a
large number of the small sheep owners are neither expert shearers nor
particularly fond of thc job, is recognized by the Manitoba government is
shown by a new line o'* work which
thc department of agriculture has
commenced, and which will be of
great benefit to many sheep  owners.
Two experienced shearers are moving about through the. province and
shearing aud dipping the flocks. Thcy
go about from place to place as fast
as thej- can be transferred in an
automobile, which will also carry thc
sheep shearing machine and dipping i
outfit. Thc slxcaring and dipping will
be done on thc owner's farm as far
as possible, and thc outfit wiii be
able to handle 160 to 200 head of
sheep a da}-, depending on the distance to be travelled between each
farm. A charge of 25 cents a head
is being made for thc work, but
lambs will be dipped free of charge.
Until the work is well under w?.y
the outfit is to be accompanied by
an official of the live stock branch
of the Dominion government. .
In addition to performing a useful
work, thc outfit will also afford a
valuable demonstration to farmers in
correct shearing and the benefits of
dipping. Should the experiment
prove a success, aud the demand sufficient to warrant increasing thc staff
and equipment, it is possible that the
field of operations will be enlarged
next  season.

Huns to Go Barefooted
"Go barefoot this summer and help
the fatherland," is thc latest patriotic
catchword  to  be  placarded in     Germany.
"In view of the alarming scarcity
of leather, rich and poor alike should
dispense with boots and shoes." says
an explanation of thc placard in the
Rhenish Westfalische Zeitung, of
Essen. The old arc urged to set an
example for thc young. "Why not
walk on your bare feet this summer?" says the Zeitung. "Neither
old nor young need be ashamed to
walk barefoot anywhere���at home, in
the  streets, at school or in cnurcm"

"No. I propose to run ihrough thc  trap dead slow, so as to put 'cm off  their guard, and then rush 'cm on  the wav home. In the meanwhile  what's "tho. matter with a nice lrttle  lunch at High Wycombe or Aylesbury?"  The program met with thc fair  passenger's approval and was Ciuly  carried out. Shortly after passing  the collection of brand new villas  that cluster round "Thc Bull' at  Gerrard's Cross, Sir Anthony drew  bis companion's attention to the  top of a blue helmet lurking behind  the hedge, but they were traveling at  such a moderate speed ovcr the  measured snace that its wearer did  not trouble to signal the time keeper  at the other end. The car sped on,  leisurely and jinn.ciested.  "We have located the trap ^and  created our atmosphere, Miss Gaspard," thc driver explained his tactics. "We'll bust 'em both in hoary  chaos  next  tinno."  In his impatience hc decided that  Wycombe should be the limit of the  expedition, and there thcy lunched  in the coffee room of the old "Red  I Lion." Sir Anthony was too full of  Inis wager to talk of anything else,  and it was "ncar'thc end of the meal  that Laura managed, rather abruptly, to  side-track the subject.  "You knew Mr. Clayton Kcnyon  before you met Wm at our house,  didn't yon?" she asked suddenly.  ^  (Continued.)  CHAPTER TTT.  The Trap  While on leave front his regiment  Sir Anthony West occupied rooms  in Bury Street, St. Janncs's, and in  that narrow thoroughfare Jasper  Morgan's car arrived on the morning  atfer the Avager, puctually to the arrangement made the night before.  Sir Anthony was w;aiting on the  doorstep, and the chauffeur, alighting  handed :hini a sealed envelope. It  contained a fifty-pound note and the  pencilled scrawl:  "To pay the fine if you break  ���������down ovcr the first condition. We  can   square   accounts   afterwards."  Sir Anthony glanced at the chauffeur, in a mind to send a message of  thanks for the thoughtful provision,  'but, though the man wore the usual  -sphinx-like expression of his tribe,  and was probably to be trusted, he  checked the impulse. If he was to  win his bet there must be no risk of  leakage. Doubtless Morgan had  .pitched seine, talc to his servant  which would prepare him for trouble  to his master on the Oxford- Road.  Silence was the best policy. So, after a few questions as to the behaviour of Mr. Morgan's .new purchase,  Sir Anthony took jus Mutt .at the  wheel and thc clia.uffe.ur walked  away.  In 1he morning sunlight of .lit  July day the house in Brown Street,  May fair, shared the austere uniformity ot its neighbors. Thc window  boxes, with their scarlet geraniums  'and edgings of blue lobelia, were of  the same pattern, and the striped  ���������awnings suggested the same cool decorum behind. In the epiict exterior  there was no hint of the long green  table in thc drawing room on lhc  first floor, no suggestion that in thc  mnall hours in en and women    flitted  "Knew good old Clayton? Rather! We were at school together,  though hc is four years older than  mc/' Sir Anthony replied, looking  puzzled. "I hadn't seen him for  ages, till hc rolled up at Number  Nineteen a fortnight ago. Is he a  particular friend of yours., Miss Gaspard?"  "Hardly that" was thc reply, after an instant's hesitation. "But I  think he is most awfully interesting.  It seems so strange that a man who  gets his living by the law should  himself be breaking thc law every  night of his life."  "Come to think of it it is queer,"  Sir Anthony assented carelessly. "But  Kcnyon was always a gambler. Nearly got the sack from school for betting- with the headmaster's coachman. -Uirl-s, too! My word, he was  real hot stuff in that line before he  was nineteen. I was his fag, and  used to have to carry notes to every  pretty doll of a shoppee in the  town. But he's a good pal. I'd trust  him in  any oTd fix."  With a shrug of her shapely  shoulders Laura intimated that- she  had exhausted her interest in Mr.  Clayton K-cinyoin, and Sir Anthony,  ordering coffee and liqucrs, did not  perceive the transient frown that  puckered her brows. The young  baronet was not a ladies' man or a  coxcomb. He frankly ^ admitted to  him self that he wiui ordy making use  of his showy companion because she  suited his present purpose. He was  not ont for gallantries, and all that  he felt bound as a gentleman to do  was to treat with outward respect  the daughter of the suave rascal���������he  was under no illusion about t that���������  who gave him nightly facilities for  completing his ruin. Without knowing it be bad resented thc intimate  note which Laura had endeavored to  strike about his old schoolfellow.  But he was absorbed in the all-important venture, and he had forgotten   the  passing annoyance  when,    '  Russia Revives Slavery     i  Terrible Indictment Against thc Boi- j  sheviki Government j  litter demoralization marks the  path of lhc Russian revolution, and  today many sincere radicals who  once were enthusiastic revolutionaries arc sighing a little regretfully for  the days that are no more. We would  be unable to credit some of the reports coming out of Russia, if \vc  found them in the reactionary press,  -but tlie latest and most terrible indictment against thc Bolshcviki government���������or absence of government  ���������is from the pen of that indubitably  radical Socialist, Maxim Gorky, in  his organ, lhc Pctrograd Novaya  Zhizn.    He writes:  "All observers of'the village today  arc unanimously of the opinion that  the process of disintegration and demoralization is proceeding there with  irresistible force. Having plundered  the estates of the landowners, having shared out among themselves or  simply destroyed thc dead and living  stocks on those estates, having even  taken to pieces the buildings, the  peasants arc now preparing for war  against one another for the division  of the spoil. To this is added the  calamity of famine. In some districts the population has long ago  consumed all the available stocks of  corn, including seed corn; while in  others   the  peasants,   having  had      a  rrr-.rxr\       t.r.x-..nr.X ��������� ..rx      T...)..*,���������*       r.*x~.x r. ~, .X  O^V-     ..a.

All  this must lead, and in some places  has already led, to a war of all  against all, and to fine most senseless  chaos and universal destruction and  murder."  Human beings, we are told, arc  now bought and sold and thc price  has dropped from $75 to $15. The  Norvaya  Zhizn  proceeds:  "Information is constantly arriving of the division of military property among the demoralized soldiers and of various outrages committed by them. Monstrous rumors  arc circulated about thc army which  is returning from Asia Minor. It  appear that it has brought into the  Crimea a large number of female  slaves, and that at Thcodosia a regular slave-market is being held, thc  supply being so large that prices  soon fell from 100 or 150 rubles to  25 or 30 rubles per slave.

The Valley apricot crop started  shipping this week. The Fair head  ranch led them all, with the fisst crate  out on Monday. Not many trees of  this sort however, are planted locally.  Sunday proved the banner raspberry shipping day this season. In  the neighborhood of 475 crates went  out that day. The Union had 425 of  them. Monday had almost 375 to its  credit.  Gun licenses are now ayailable from  Provincial police Vaehon, who received a supply of them last month. These  will in future expire on May 31st.  Hitherto they ran out at the end of  March.  H.

So far 23 Creston  men have fallen in the fighting,  though of late no casualties have been  reported.  The rainfall on Thursday and Friday  was so extensive and continuous that  Saturday was the lightest shipping  day at Creston in almost two months.

Now, on behalf of those misguided  individuals who have the temerity to  incur the just displeasure of this comic  opera   dictator   by keeping "ueeless  curs," and having good reason for assuming that the threat is intended for  myself in particular, I respectfully beg  to submit the following:  .   1. If this Charlie Chaplin autocrat  that makes his own laws really has  the welfare  of the community, who  are good-natured enough to still tolerate and support him, at heart���������as he  would have us  belieye���������his best way  to show it would be to get rid of his  cow, which, as eyery fair-minded citizen will admit, has been, and still is, a  greater nuisance and a greater source  of annoyance and expense to this community than all the dogs in the place,  useless curs and otherwise.  2. I claim that this generous and disinterested (?) public benefactor deliberately permitteb his so-called cattle to  trespass on and. destroy his patrons'  gardens and property when he.could  have easily prevented it���������and is still  doing so.  3. I haye never set my dogs on this  man's or any other cattle, ais ho well  knows, except in protection of my own  property, and this I claim a perfect  right to do, and will contiuue to do, in  spite of the threats of this enterprising genius who apparently knows as  little of law as he does of common  deceucy. ^ W.H.MORRIS.  ���������  .    ��������� =...-..���������  New Styles in l Crotnpton 's  SUM xflf  ������L>'xV5&~,->  /I Is*\f������t  f^g\m^^lQt.^  arrived this week  Below are a few descriptions  of same and prices :'  No. 251, Coutil, medium bust, long hip, average figure���������%\.50  Ofa������T ������' 1  *������ 1        '*        J?..-I* *��������� 1    r.f\  207  low  ti  long   il    full  .... 1.50  309  low  at  long   "    medium  .... 1.75  369  medium  U  long   "    average  .... 2.00  431  medium  tl  long   "   full  ... 2.50  479  low  li  long   "    olight  .... 2.00  505  tt  low  t,  lodg   "    average  .... 2.50  Let us show you these Corsets.
