C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1918  No. 31  September Mee  The getting on with the finish-up  work of Kootenay Flats Reclamation  survey work and a general discussion  of Indian reserve.matters, along with  some attention co irrigation were  features of the September Board of  Trade meeting on Tuesday night,  which was presided over by President  Speer, and favoured with a good turnout of members.  On reclamation the secretary was  authorized to communicate with the  ministers interested at Victoria, as  well as Hon. John Keen; callm*-*" attention to the fact that very definite  assui'ance was given that the engineering investigation would be completed this fall, and as only about two  more months of likely weather for operation is in prospect the Board thinks  it high time the engineers were getting on the iob.  On the Indian reserve extension a  petition setting forth in very definite  terms why no additional lands on the  Hats should be conceded the Indians  was submitted and approved, and the  same will be taken around the Valley  for signature by Messrs. Geo. Johnson,  R. S. Bevan and C. O. Rodgers. At  the head of the petition is a small map  showing the location of the proposed  added areas, a glance at which will  convince of the undesirability of such  additions with or withont reclamation even.  On irrigation the consensus of opinion was that if any headway is to be  made on the project immediately it is  essential that the report of Engineer  Biker on the scheme should be available by the latter part of November,  thus allowing the fore part of the winter to take the matter uq direct with  all interested in definite fashion.  In view of the urgency of all these  matters it was decided to have the secretary write Hdh. John Keen asking  him to visit Creston within the next  few days so that these matters can be  the-moi',' ,.irectly brought to his attention.  The C.P.R, haying taken up the  pipes late last fall wherewith the stock  shipping corral was supplied with water, Supt.

Jack Cameron spent a few days in  Creston and vicinity the latter part of  the week, going on to Kitchener for a  few days' fishing.  Mrs. E.

To allow the very busy people of the  Valley every possible opportunity to  get exhibits in shape it has been decided to have Thursd;A'w Se"t. 28th  the last day for taking entries, instead  of Tuesday, Sept. 24th. as per printed  prize list. This will allow but one day  for the fitting up of the halls to accommodate the entries in sight, and  intending exhibitors are asked to remember that no entries will be accepted after the 26th.  ���������The board of trade has consented to  loan the association the flags and  bunting with which the town was  decked out on Reclamation Day last  year, and to see that the town is decorated a committee for that parposeis  named as follows: Messrs. Bevan,  Speers, Crawford. Johnson and Hayes.  To expedite the financial roundup  the fair finance committee was enlarged to take in Messrs. Johnson and  Bevan. And to be sure of plenty of  accommodation ready to receive the  exhibits a hall and grounds committee  was named, to consist of Messrs.  Speers, Johnson and Gibbs.  The government h.u*   assured  that  they can supply all the tents that will  be required   to  take  caie of displays  that   cannot   be   staged in the halls  available.   .

Special prizes are coining in everyday, but the prize list committee was  instructed to issue a supplementary  list showing these extra offerings and  it will he mailed out the fore pint of  the week.

It was used in  France and Russia. It was part of  the story circulated to discourage the  Italians. In the states it had quite  a vogue, even down to the declaration of war.  There has recently been authorized  certain figures for publication which  more clearly than any bald statements demonstrates just what effort  Britain has inadc since August, 1914.  All of the figures are up to thc end  of  1917.  First and foremost comes the work  of the British navy. To refer to  the way in which the enemy's surface  war craft and merchantmen have  been driven from the seas does not  seem io impress the landsman as  much as it should,-but let the figures  tell the talc.  In the North Sea alone 140,000  square nautical miles, an area larger  than Germany, are patrolled -without ceasing in all weathers. In one  single month the British warships  proper travelled a million sea miles  in home waters, and during the same  period ihe mileage of patrol, minesweepers and other auxiliary craft  was 250 times the circuit of the  globe.  The blockade has been a most effective weapon, a giant squeeze, ever  getting tighter. In 1915 there were  2?6 out of 1,400 ships which eluded  the patrol squadrons. In 1916 only 60  out of 3,000 escaped being examined.  In one month last year not a single  y_������33el trading with neutrals crossed  'the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans  ���������without being held up.  ill     y-Vllgi.131,      i71T, lllC 1ICVV  V      J.M&U   '"  total  force of   145,000      officers     and  men.     The total tonnage of the fleet  was four million tons, and there were  a  round    dozen     mine* sweepers   and  patrol boats-.- After nearly four years  of war the officers and men number  450,000;   tiie   tonnage   of   British  war  ships   is   six   million   tons   or   50   per  cent,   more,  and   thc  mine     sweepers  and  patrol  boats,   not     included      in  this, have increased from 12 to 3,300.  In  addition  the  great work  of  the  navy,   thc   almost   superhuman    task,  performed  in     a   way  which     makes  German   efficiency    look     like   child's  play,   has  been   thc   transporting   and  convoying' of  men,   munitions,   equipment and food for the forces of British   armies   and   their   allies   all   over  the  world.     Down to the end of last  year the navy had successfully transported   13,0!������0.000 men, of -whom  only  J.7..MI  were lost by enemy action,  two  iitd   mules,    half   a  25.000,000 tons   of  supplies.    ?1.00:..000  !0l  million  million  c >: \> 1 o *- i \  l.iiiS    I. if  tOl'-V   of  in   I������ri'. i  We   !  dorses  vehicles  os and  oil and  food a i  -ii ships  ear  a   g  e.t'N.     i.r  "idly  auackc  Y 210  other  . ei*:������.;' .-,    ol    ii!  ���������.,',���������������������������  ^ par;.  md     130.000.000  d  other materials   all  tisn  ileal of German  submarines have  i   -0   enemy   war-  Vi'SM'l -*.  ���������   world   have   for  tween them 900,000, or 12 per cent.  If the men of British birth in thc  armies of Canada and the .Dominions  generally were added to their brothers raised in the homeland, the British percentage would be increased.  Who will say that Britain is not doing- her duty or her full share in face  of  these Ygures?  On the French front nl though the  first expeditionary force was almost  annihilated, one division alone losing  10,000 out of 12,000 men and 350 out  of 400 officers, the line held by the  British army has been steadily increased so that now over three million arc required to hold it. Other  British armies are operating all over  the world.  Exaggerated ideas of the number  of_ prisoners taken have been obtained by repetitions in the cables,  and wild guesses of correspondents.  The official figures show that down  to thc end of November last thc  .British had taken 176,000 prisoners  and*������900 cannon. In addition 1,244,000  square miles of enemy territory had  been won, and 20,000 square miles of  Egypt recovered, all of which was  unconnected with the French and  Flanders front, and embraces only-  exploits of thc British army in other  parts of thc world.  When Avar opened the naval air  force consisted of 80 trained men and  64 aeroplanes, while the army only-  had 100 men and 66 aeroplanes. It  is not allowable to give figures today beyond the fact that last year  the navy alone had 42,000 aviators  and the army tens of thousands, and  aeroplanes in like proportion. Today  both services are combined. Here it  is only fair to say that a large proportion of the aviators and some of  thc very best arc young Canadians.  In the first nine months of last vcar  tuC      jjiitiSH      an   JUH.C   uiuumu   uOavu  876 enemy machines, which means  thc death, or capture, in most cases,  of the aviators, and the destruction  of thc machine. In addition, 759  were driven down out of control.  Finally, thc figures on munitions  are enlightening. The enemy had  Great Britain at great disadvantage.  In the month of May, 1915, Germany  was manufacturing 250,000 shells  daily, mostly high explosive. The  British were turning out only 2,500  high explosive and 13,000 shrapnel.  In the following month of June, the  ministry of munitions, with Lloyd  George, at the head, was formed. The  exact figures may not be given, but  can be indicated. For instance take  the weight of ammunition produced  in June, 1915, aud call it 100. On  this basis when Avar broke .out the  British avcic. producing 12. By December, 1914, 16. By June, 1915, after  nearly two years of Avar, 100. December of that year the amount was  double, 200 representing the figures.  Tunc, 1916, avc have to use an index  figure, of 920, December, 1916, this  had   risen   to   1,540,  -and  by  June   of  Just Listening Post Business  A Night's Work Close Up    to    the  Enemy Trenches  It was the first time I had ever  been out in a listening post, and -I  was very nervous. Do you wonder,  asks  a soldier  correspondent.  .Briefly, listening post duty means  that you crawl out into "No Man's  Land as near the enemy's trenches  as possible ��������� sometimes into their  wire���������and lie there in the mud and  darkness listening.  Sometimes the things that come  are unwelcome���������a sniper's bullet, a  hand-grenade thrown from the German trench, a shell falling short;  sometimes there come German patrols. And then���������well, what are  your bombs and revolver for?  But all the same I was frightfully  nervous, and so was the young Briton boy with mc. We -weren't scared  ���������just nervous. We got into a small  shell hole just beside the German  av!?*?. Oyer in the German trench we  could hear some of them coughing  and sneezing; we could hear their  feet thumping on the trench boards  as they walked.  From our oavii lines there came  the music of a concert held behind  thc front line. The wheezing of a  concertina and piping of a tin whistle  playing Harry Lauder's songs came  to us faintly. We wished we were  back Avith the concertina.  And then the thing happened. The  Briton boy had been peering out of  the shell hole. lie ducked, his head,  and  placed  his  lips  to  aiy  ear.  "Fritz!���������on the fircstcp! He's coming."  I raised my head. Yes, a German  was strolling through a lane in his  Avire tOAvards our shell hole. We lay  low.  We could hear his feet slithering  through the mud    as he    approached  A DAY OF AWATaTP-viMn T-rrftn the -fiRDM atvt dcopi r  ���������*���������   ���������    ���������     ���������  ,    r.  ������������������^x~.x    -���������77  7~*       ������.     ������_������ =.-& JX   ~ XX X-4       *^������ X-4 0.0.

We had  dulled the. blades with mud so that  there would be no gleam of steel.  The German came on, humming a  tune to himself, turning his head  now and then towards his own  trenches. He came to the edge of  our shell hole and his form was outlined against the dark sky. He was  a small man, but round and heavily  built. He stood within two yards of  us.  We both acted at once. Both bayonets got him in the side, mine just  under the armpit. He swayed from  side to side and then sank uoavii A\-ith  a peculiar little half-sigh, half-groan  a heap of legs and shoulders, his  round cap sliding over his forehead.

Not only aye reports as  to what Germany has built or is  building conflicting, but every effort  to secure positive information in regard to the whereabouts and condition of the Russian fleet in the Black  and Baltic Seas has met with failure.  Naval officials are particularly interested in the dreadnoughts and  battle cruisers Germany may have  secured by seizure of the Russian  fleets. At least eight modern battleships AA'ere in iiie Baiiic and Black  Seas, and four battle cruisers were  under construction at points in the  Gulf of Finland when the Russian  collapse came.  It is estimated that if Germany  has obtained all Russian Avar craft  and succeeded in putting them into  fighting condition she has been able  to increase the strength of her high  seas fleet by 25 per cent. Admiral  Benson was quite positive, liOAvevcr,  of the ability of the allied fleets to  deal with thc enemy should he venture out.  The chief of operations said that  information as to the Russian Baltic  fleet  was   unreliable  in   the   extreme, i sleep in the deep that their memories  German atrocities will make it very  hard for the German ,ncoT*lc after tli"  Avar. The stories of the crimes perpetrated on the high seas and on  land have been served tip to thc  German people by the Wolff bureau  in such a way as to make them believe they were acts of legitimate  warfare. The Prussian Junkers long  ago systematically set about the task  of taking advantage of the psychological make-up of the people, to'  their own ends. And they have succeeded. The result is this: the German people appear ready to accept  anything the German government  does as right and legitimate, and calculated to end. the Avar in a victory  for the Teutonic allies. Some day  the great aAvakening Avill come,  the destiny of the Junkers can  left with the German people.  isut in the meantime enmity  ward the German people has  come deep-rooted. So many homes  have been made houses of mourning,  so many family breadwinners haA'C  lost their lives through Germany's  crimes, that this deep-rooted feeling  will naturally persist long after the  Avar.  The men Avho go down to the sea  in ships, not only to Avithstand the  rigors of the elements, but to take  chances Avith the treacherous sea  pirates, nave made great sacrifices.

After remarking that only weaklings can believe in the possibility of  an'understanding with England, it  proceeds  Lo  say:  "Victorious Germany Avill havo no  paper agreements. She simply Avill  require of England, France, Belgium  and Portugal, thc cession as an indemnity of such portions of their present possessions as <������he may need  for the establishment of her Central  African empire, Togohuul and  Southwest Africa to be the corner  pillars of this new colonial empire  which Germany intends to develop  into a great, military power, with  carefully protected' Avirelcss stations,  roads, railways, shore batteries and  [depots for raw materials, food und  ' munitions."  The Kroii'/. Xciluiig bcdrangles before the eyes of the.

Thcy are unable  to estimate, however, what number  of additional heavy craft may have  been  commissioned.  In regard to submarine construction in Germany, Admiral Benson  said there Avas no definite information here. Reports ranged, he said,  from five a day to three a month.  The admiral Avas not disposed to  question, however, the recent statement of Sir Eric Geddes, first lord  of the British admiralty, that more  submarines Avere being sunk than  Germany could replace.  Alcohol as Fuel  rise up as monuments to German in-  famj'-. This perhaps is why the British seamen have made a atoav. It lias  been printed and spread broadcast.  It is stamped on millions of letters  that leave the Old Country. It is  the stump of the Seamen's Union,  and reads as folloAvs:  "A people Avho can glory in the destruction of merchant ships and tho  drOAvning of their crews and passengers is, in my opinion, beyond the  one, so long as I  knowingly consort  Avith Germans or buv" German  goods."  In the face of such a pledge the  allied governments are confronted  with a big task. The human family  must live together if peace is to  come and last. How can this be  done? Much -yvill depend upon the  peace terms. If those Avho are directly responsible for these _ crimes  arc brought to the bar of " justice,  jan'd the German people, Avhen they  i knoAV the real facts are ready- to  make retribution for thc wrongs  their leaders committed, then Avill  there be a chance of thc allied people individually forgetting Avhat has  transpired. Thc monuments that Avill  rise to the victims of German blood-  lust Avill be sufficient to tell the  Avholc Avorld that such things must  not  happen  again.���������Toronto   Globe.  for  'li:  , lie  -I ..I.

Price Fixing Difficulties  Evasion of the Regulations and    the  Discouragement of Production  Professor W. Clarke, of Queen's  University, is the author of an interesting bulletin relative to price-nixing, Avhich has just been issued by  the department' of history and political  science.  After citing A-arious causes for  price fluctuation, Prof. Clarke mentions instances Avhere fixation has  failed as a practical policy. The first  trouble, he says, is caused by  sion   of  the  regulations.   People  the  cv;i-  with  gov-  nioney Avill offer more, than  eminent price and in numerous  cases the offers Avill he accepted.  Even in Germany, Avhere the domestic government seems all powerful,  the evasions have been astounding.  The natunil result i.s that the scarcity  of supply becomes greater than aver.  After evasioi., the next great objection is the discouragement of production. I'or example: "Limit the.  price of milk and thc farmer can  churn and sell butter, limit the price  of butler and he can sell cheese, limit the price of all dairy products and  lu* can fallen his slock  for market."

American Visitors May Travel Freely in Canada Without any  Interference  The volume of tourist traffic from  the United States this year has been  considerably lessened by misleading-  press dispatches appearing in American and Canadian papers regarding  the Canadian registration act.

California  The Passing of the Million Mark Is  an Event  The amazing record made has  been in response to an emergency  and thc history of thc Avorld glues  no parallel for Avhat America has  done and is doing.  What it means to the allies may be  seen  from   the  fact   that   since April  1, thc day Avhen Hindenburg was   to  be in  Paris,    this  country has    sent  637,929  men abroad.     The  casualties  of   thc  allies   since   March    21      can  hardly exceed half a million.     Thus  they are  left in  man  power stronger  than  before, while Germany has    no  new source upon which to draAv    to  replace men  sacrificed  ruthlessly    in  thc  great  offensive.     The  passing  of  thc million mark is an event that Avill  be celebrated Avith  high    enthusiasm  in all  the countries leagued in     defense    against    German    aggression.  Best  of all  is  thc  fact   that  not m a  single American     transport    carrying  troops to Europe has been sunk, and  that thc total loss of life in transport  has been 291.    There may be heavier  Iorso?;   to   come,   but   the   record      to  date shows that the U-boat, has been  defied and beaten.���������From thc Springfield Republican.

As to prize money, ample  funds are now in sight to pay all  the prizes.  All that is now required to put  the fair over in fine style is the  support of the citizens. If all who  have worth-while stuff will eshibit  it, and the rest of us do what we  can to encourage them to do so, the  exhibition will be a dandy in every  department.  There isn't a reason in God's  world why we shouldn't have a  show, and about a thousand (more  or less) why we should have a good  one. Now, then, all together for  the first annual fall fair.  mfio ur &  Tory   Gran-  Coming from the  brook Herald the above sounds  ominous.

In those departments that the  ladies have taken charge of it is  safe to say there will be no lack of  exhibits, either as to quantity or  quality.

Last year the board of trade took  charge of ��������� making a display of  fruits and vegetables at Cranbsook  and the effort proved decidedly  worth while, both financially as  well as as giving the Valley a lire  of advertising that was not without  some good.effect on local trade and  commerce.  This year the Cranbrook fair  directors are offering the same generous prize as they did a year ago,  and are counting on the same  splendid showing, especially In  fruit, as they had in 1917.  In addition to attractive cash  aAvards in the classes in Avhich  Creston is chiefly interested, the  directors are making the 1918 fair  bigger and better in every direction, Avhich will undoubtedly attract a much bigger attendance,  with the attendant spreading a  little more broadcast of Creston's  excellence as a fruit producing  centre.

In addition to devoting attention  to Avinning all the prizes possible,  it is to be hoped there will be a  goodly turnout from here "among  those present" at the Cranbrook  fair. Judging from the attractions that have been secured, the  horse races and sports that will  also be features, these, coupled with  the exhibits in many departments,  should make the fair an all-round  good one, while a short holiday trip  is what most of us need as well.

In  the same period thc naval air men  shot down 623, a total of 3,856.  An official statement dealing with  these  operations  says:  "The Royal Air Force during the  year beginning" July 1, 1917, on the  British western front, destroyed  2.150 hostile machines and drove  down out of control 1,083. In the  sar*ie period, the air force units  working in conjunction with the navy  shot down 623  hostile  machines.

Panne-  lee's Vegetable Pills are the very  best medicine that can be taken to  bring relief. These pills are specially  compounded to deal with dyspepsia,  and their sterling qualities in this respect can be vouched for by legions  of users.  tricts concerned, by the substitution  of fish, 200,000 pounds of beef were  saved in the month of May and approximately the same amount in the  month of June. Very encouraging  results have been attained in the conservation of foodstuffs of all kinds,- as  well as  other supplies.  The conservation branch, in cooperation with the Canada food  board, has been in operation since  February, when a. conservation officer was appointed with experience  in the Canadian army service corps  overseas, and assitant officers under  him were nominated in each military  district, these being always returned  men with experience in similar work  on  active  service overseas.  Thc main saving in foodstuffs has  been in the control of the issue. The  rations provided arc calculated to insure the maximum necessary for a  160-pound man engaged in hard  labor. A big field for conservation  was found in the margin between  the maximum contingency and the  actual requirements from d_iv to  day. Bread used in Canadian camps  and in all places where troops were  fed in Canada by the government  contains 20 per cent, substitute for  wheat flour, while all the flour itself  is of the standard required by order  of  thc  Canada food board.

The losses of food ships for  the same period was less than 1.4 per  cent.  The result of the convoy system,  Sir Leo said, continued to improve.  Since January, 1917, when the system was put into effect, 42 million  gross tons had been convoyed to  British and French ports with a loss  up to June 29 of 1.29 per cent.

U-Boat  one  of  the  Grea.test    Perils  Against  Which  the  Allies  Have  to  Fight  The great body of the British  nation fails to realize how near Britain came to irretrievable disaster because of the German U-boats, said  Frederick George Kellaway, secretary to the minister of munition*.,  speaking in an English Midland  town last week.  In discussing the submarine peril,  Mr. Kellaway said:  "The U-boat is still one of the  greatest perils against' which the  allies have to fight. Those who suppose we shall ever be able to abolish  these risks are living in a fool's paradise. But, thanks to the navy, _ our  losscs  are  being  brought     to  within  To the End  The Keystone Province  From a Speech by Lord Buffeiin Delivered in Winnipeg, Sept.  29, 1876  From its geographical position,  and its peculiar characteristics, Manitoba, may be regarded as the keystone of that mighty arch of sister  provinces which spans the "continent  from  the Atlantic  to   the  Pacific.  Jt was here that Canada, emerging  from her woods and forests, 'first  gazod upon her rolling prairies and  unexplored Northwest, and learnt as  by an unexpected revelation that her  bYton.'il territories of the Canada..,  lier eastern seaboards of New Bruns-  v.'ii'k.

A soldier, back from the  trenches, is sitting iu a corner near  the entrance and puts his hand into  his pocket for his fare, and pulls  out a shilling and some coppers. The  bus jolts violently and, ^o the soldier's dismay, the shilling slips from  his fingers just as the lights go out,  as they always do in London in  these days when a bridge is being  crossed. The passengers with one  accord begin to grope for the soldier's shilling. '"Fraid it rolled off,  mate," says the conductor. Then  tlie lights go up again and discover  three passengers each holding out  the shilling which liicy have loiuui.  ���������London  Chronicle.  limits  which  the     allies     can       be-  without flinching.  '-Recent returns show the losses of  munition ships from submarine warfare are only about a quarter of  what they were when the U-boat  campaign "was at its height. There  have been weeks recently when the  Germans failed to sink a single ton  of munitions."  Lord Beresford, calling attention  to the danger from uninterned aliens  and expressing the belief that many  ships have been torpedoed through  information furnished by spies, and  that a month ago thc British, allied  and neutral tonnage sunk amounted  approximately to 13,000 tons daily.  A fortnight ago it was 4,000 tons  daily, and last week 3,000 tons daily.  These, he declared, were satisfactory  figures, and the spies would be completely beaten when thc British and  Americans got their large fleets of  destrovers on  the water.  Until the .Accursed Menace to    Our  Destinies Is Forever Banished  There is no thought of peace by  understanding with a -victorious Germany among the Canadians at the.  front. From an officer in France  Mr. Walter Jcssop of Toronto has  received a letter giving the point o������  view of the men over there. He  says:  j. tie i1 rcncli peQi>Jc impress m*-,  very much. I do not think we English really understand what nationalism means. We send our soldiers to  light, the French people seem to  fight .with them. There's a big difference. It is a great inspiration to  see United States troops, together  with French and British, in the nearby towns. The more I see of what  German domination has meant and  will mean if it is not wholly and  finally destroj-ed, the more " I am  ��������� convinced that 'his business is worth.  going on with to the end. The other  day I saw a child weeping outside  the ruins of a cottage in the street  of a shattered village. Perhaps it  had been her home and aii her folks  had perished. ��������� I reflected���������as the  pathos of. it all was borne in upon,  me���������that.if wc were not here things  would be like that 'over there.'  . "The spirit of all ranks is one of  complete confidence, and so it behooves our people to maintain the;  same unconquerable spirit at home-  to look tip and not down, forward  and not backward, until the accursed  menace to our destinies is forever  banished  from the earth."

"Well, what's this I hear about  your having seen me on the moor  thc other day when I haven't been  in Comlyn for weeks?"  _ The savage cj'es relaxed none of  their menace, yet tiie words of Michael Hever were to some extent  conciliatory.  "I've taken it back, Sir Anthony-  West," he said, dwelling- strangely on  the surname.

And  the   scowling   menace   on   the   down-  turned   face   contradicted     any     idea  that the retraction was due to friendly feeling.  "Vou might have realized that  your statement was worthless a little  sooner aud saved me a. "ournev from  London to deny your drunken lies,"  the young- baronet blazed into sudden anger. "Were the other tattlers  who said they saw me in Comlyn  ���������drunk,  too?"  "I can only speak for myself, but  *I was drunk enough for the lot.'' Michael Hever tossed down the insolent reply. And then, as if he were  losing control he bared his gums to  snarl: "You ought to thank youi  Stars my evidence isn't wanted. It  would have been the proudest deed  I'd ever done to have helpd to hang  you at Bodmin jail."  "Come away, Tony," Mavis laid  her hand on her companion's arm,  and Sir Anthony, who had turned  dangerously white under the tirade,  allowed himself to be led from the  temptation to retaliate. And nothing was to be gained by further parley. They had at least established  the fact that the principal witness of  Sir Anthony's presence in the village  had proved himself a broken reed  ���������whom Superintendent Noakes had  flung away as useless. They mounted the steps up the cliff without referring to the extraordinary interview with Hever, avoiding it by mutual consent. But at the top West  broke into a boyish laugh.  ��������� "For twopence I'd have gone up  on lo ihe hulk and thraslicd that  scoundrel," lu- said. "Simply because  lie betrayed me into an unpardonable  rudeness to you, dear. 1 didn't mean  to imply that you had had a rt'rop  too much when you were deceived bv  this  rotten   Zingari   ribbon."  Mavis, walking at his side across  the dower house lawn to let: him out  at the wicket gale, ignored the boisterous jest.  "1 am glad that you have seen 1 lever." she ' replied gravely. "You will  pow be- able lo make it quite _ clear  at the inquest tomorrow, without  fear of contradiction, thai you were  ���������well,  wherever  you  were,  Tony."  P.ut, though they parted on that-  note and Sir Anthony whistled \r.:\\\-  to keep up his spirits as lie returned  to Merlin Farm, he left the coro,ii*-rY  luquiry next day a broken man. lie  knew "ih.-iI he was broken, and thai a  ton! stain would rest on his n;r.ue,  though not a word was uttered showing ihat from any quarter hud blown  a breath of suspicion connecting him  with   the  tragedy al  Comlyn   Court.  .It was thc i.u-l of his having been  Called as a witness aud of having-  tendered, or, rather, withheld. the  evidence he did, which would cause  liim lo walk ii.i tho shadows for the  rest of his life unless Mrs. Morviiit's  murderer were caught.

"flao*  ~-^-r-~-~m^rmm -I.    AtMV  the heated imagination of local busy bodies can  lead you into," he directed a severely  audible aside at Superintendent  Noakes, who was breathing heavily  at his elbow. Turning to beam at  the witness, he seemed on the point  of dismissing him, instead of which  with kindly intent he returned to the  charge and proceeded to stir, up the  mud which was to engulf Tony West  in a hopeless morass.  "Of course, you will understand,  Sir Anthony, that you were only  summoned to give evidence of what  you might have seen in the village  had these ridiculous rumors of your  presence been true," he.- went on.  "Anything a representative of your  honored family could have told us  would have carried great weight.  "And while we are about it���������just to  save you from being worried at  some future time, when the police  have worked up their clues���������can you  indicate a little more plainly, so that  in our red tape fashion it can be  formally verified exactly where you  were on the afternoon and night of  the tenth of this month?"  Be it rembered that Sir Anthony  West was a soldier, a very careless  young man, and till a year or two  ago, as lord of Western Abbey, the  most important personage in the  district. But, for all the dignity oi  his breeding and the courage which  -was his by right of birth and training, he cut a sorry figure before that  friendly question. He gazed round  the room in evident distress, his  eyes seeming to seek suggestion or  solace among the ranks of the spectators, whence Jasper Morgan was  regarding him with a steadily in-  He shifted his gaze  to Mavis, present in case her evidence should need repetition or addition.     She,   too,  was  plainly  hang  ing on   the answer  lie  was yet  shining  and  her  to  lips  himself  give,  her  ej-es  half parted.  Then,   suddenly,     he   was  again���������a gentleman who had given a  promise  which  he  could  not    break,  however trivial the purport of it.  "I am sorrv, Mr. Coroner," he replied, "that 1 cannot say just where  I was that day or night. I should  have to drag in names that I must  keep out of it. You know the world  sir._ An officer on leave from his  regiment cannot be pinned down to  time and place when in London."  A hush fell upon the court room.  There were those in it who had  known Sir Anthony from boyhood,  and the}- looked at one another in  dismay. Surely, their glances said,  thc young fool could not understand  the serious inference that would be  drawn from his refusal to have his  bare statement verified. A minute  later these well-wishers breathed  more freely. The coroner was  speaking, and it appeared that hc  was not going lo press the point.  (To Be Continued.)

States__ and in Canada, an organized  campaign is working for the eradication of the barberry in all    sections  The Rust Menace  In Canada  likely to infect the growing grain. It  was wrought out in* congress in  Washington by the Hon. George  Young of North Dakota, that the  settlers in the colony of Massachusetts in 1755 were aware of the intimate relations between the Barberry  plant, and rust on wheat, and that a  law was passed thirty years ago providing for the rooting out of the  oil rub in that jurisdiction, Denmark,  however, has begun the modern cru-  COflA        rxrxA      X..--      XT_..- T.rt*._        "_:*"_   .......       _.-.,, .���������.  *.<���������.!_.������., ������..������._- -...ie jtion. -.v..-. Aoung say*.  that rust has practically disappeared  from the wheat fields of that progressive Scandinavian country since  the carrying into effect' of the campaign against the innocent-appearing  barberry.  Apparently this plant is "host" for  the rust, which is carried on the  winds as far as two or three hundred miies. That is how rust in Canada may have come via the air  route from the United States, or how  rust in the Dakotas or Montana or  some other state in the republic may-  have been carried from plants in  Canada. When the climatic conditions are suitable, it fastens to the  wheat, and then, to complete the cycle the-parasite returns to the barberry which preserves it in health  during ihe winter. Almost invariably, hitherto, there has followed a  sharp reduction in yield wherever the  ordinary spring wheat has been attacked. That is where Seager Wheeler enters as a factor in the future'of  Western   Canada  grain  growing.  For the past eleven years, on his  farm near Rosthcrn on "the Canadian  Northern Railway in Central Saskatchewan, he has been "breeding" a  strain of wheat that matures early.  In itself that should be of value as  a guarantee against loss by frost.  But there is the added significance  that by the lime the rust usual!** develops on wheat in the w-est, his  wheat has developed to the point  where it can do practically no harm.  While little has been said iu public in Canada, the leadc s in Canadian agriculture have been closely  watching the rust evil in all its ramifications. Now, Dean Rutherford of  the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon,  points   out:  "The people of Saskatchewan are  fully aware of the fact that rust can  come to us from Dakota or from any  of the states to the south and gets  started when our conditions are favorable to its propagation and spread..  For instance, in 1916 the rust wave  from the stales to the south gradually pushed up in a north-westerly  direction far past Saskatoon. The  stales to the south are waging war  against the barberry. Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and I think Alberta, have  included the barberry bush amongst  their noxious weeds on account of it  being a host plant for the rust.  Steps are being taken to have it destroyed in all gardens and hedges."  And further:  "Conferences have been held already in 'Western Canada for the  purpose of discussing ways and  means of preventing Tiist-d One of  the matters that received consideration was that of the barberry and it  was recommended that this plant be  destroyed. The barberry has not  been used extensively in Western  Canada, yet, probably more of it can  be found \\\ parks and large public  grounds than anywhere else. "As  these are under governing bodies,  either municipal or government, it  will be a very easy matter to have  this plant eradicated. The Dominion  department of agriculture is interesting itself in this important question  and has under way carefully planned  investigations with reference to Jt."

These  two points alone make it a very  promising sort, as frost in every season gets some of the crops, anil in  1916 the loss from rust alone' in  Canada amounted to $135,000,000.  "Red Bobs matures a week to ten  days earlier than even Marquis.  While it is not altogether rust resistant it is practically immune owing  to its stage of filling at the time  rust begins to develop, so that rust  cannot do any damage to the grains  as it will be filled before rust makes  any headway in the crop.  "Of other good qualities its great  strength of straw enables it to be  grown on land and stand up where  ether sorts (except Kitchener) lay  down owing to excessive soft  growth in rich land. Another good  quality: the heads fill completely,,  where in other sorts many heads  haye empty spikeiets. Red Bobs is  being grown this. season in many  districts ������in the three prairie provinces and will be put to- -a severe  test, but I am confident that it will  make a  good  showing."  In a broad sense Canada must regard Red Bobs wheat as a good gitt  from Australia. Out there, under  the Southern Cross, in 1905, a farmer "crossed" a wheat without name  with a barley called Nepaul. A hard  beardless, good milling wheat was  the result, but���������it was unmarketable  because it was white. Some samples  came to this country and experiments with it Were made during a  period of several year... But it remained white. Then Seager Wheeler, in 1907, began his experiments  with it. By dint of great care and  patience has has gotten the Red  Bobs. He gave it that name because  he is a great admirer of "Bobs" the  soldier, and because he thinks one  day it will be a great factor in the  prosperity of the Dominion, a devel-  | opment in which the beloved Field  j Marshal Mould have taken pride.
