However, List year's shipping of  3500 crates will not be equalled in 1918.  Tomatoes started moving last .week  also, but as yet the export is not heavy  Fraser & Son with fifteen-crates on  Wednesday being the most notable  individual shipment to date.

As low as $50 a ton is  quoted at Okanagan points, and local  growers arc optimistic - enough to  think that fall and winter market will  be worth waiting for as our potatoes  have not anywhere near attained  their size, and $40 potatoes this fall  doeB not look unrasonable right   now  Soipping of "thinings" as cooking  apples stopped on Monday.

' Complete confidence in General Foch i.s also expressed, and  thanks arc extended to President  Wilson for his co-operation in the  the United States can bring its full  American   troops.  "The supreme war council held  its sixth session under circumstances  of great gravity for the alliance of  free" peoples," says the. statement.  "The German government, relieved  of nil pressure on thc eastern front  by the collapse of the Russian armies  and people, has concentrated all its  effort in the west. It is now seeking  to gain a decision in Europe by a  series "of desperate aud costly assaults upon the allied armies before  the United States can bring igts full  strength effectively.-to bear.  "Thc advantage it possesses in its  strategic position and superior railway facilities has enabled the enemy  coTTiniand to gain some initial success. It will undoubtedly renew its  attacks, and thc allied nations maybe  still  exposed  to critical  days.  "After- a review of thc whole .position, the supreme, war council _ is  convinced that the aiiies, bearing  the trials of the forthcoming campaign with the same fortitude as  thcy have ever exhibited in defence  of the right, will baffle the enemy's  purpose and in due course bring  him to defeat. Everything possible  is being done to sustain, and support the armies in the field. The arrangements for unity of command  have greatly- improved the position  of thc allied armies and are working  smoothlv and with success. The supreme war council has complete confidence in General Foch. It regards  with pride and admiration the valor  of thc allied troops.  "Thanks to the prompt and cordial co-operation of the president of  the United Slates, the arrangements  which were set on foot more than  two months ago for the transportation and brigading of American  troops will make it impossible for  the enemy to gain victory by wearing out the allied reserve before he  has   exhausted  his   own.  "Tlie supreme war council is confident oi the ultimate, result, and the  allied peoples are resolute not to  sacrifice a single one. of the free  r-atiens or" the world to the despotism of Berlin. Their armies are.  displaying lhc same steadfast courage  which has enabled them on many-  previous occasions to defeat a German onset. They have only to endure with faith and patience to the  end to make victory for freedom  secure.  "The free peoples ami their magnificent soldiers will save civilization."

Mr. Lccte has been 26 years  in thc department of woods and forests of the Indian government, and  has spent his whole* time in thc forests of India and Burma. His official position is that of "conservator  of forests," a position similar to that  of chief forester in the Canadian forestry  service.  Forest areas amounting to approximately 250,000 square miles of limber cover about one-fifth of India,  which is about one-third the size of  thc United States, lie. said. Every  type of timber to be found on the  American continent is included in.  Indian forests, but in India hardwood was the principal timber, while  in America soft woods predominated  largely. India was not trying to develop outside markets, but was  merely concerned with supplying the  needs   of  her  own  markets   for   lum-  One of the objects of Mr. I.ectc's  visit is lo study the methods of  handling logs, there being a proposal  in India to displace elephants and  adopt mechanical  power.

All this material was made  through long hours of sweat and  labor and toil to be used in saving  the country, and here it all is lying  in great quantities unused about a  dead battlefield, having unfulfilled its  purpose  and having  served  no  cud.  But it is not now all lost, as it  was  up  to a few  months  ago.  Hardly have the troops passed  forward in an attack than a second  army, usually of aged territorials,  follows it on to the battlefield and  begins  thc  cleaning up  process.  Sometimes their companions call  them the "rag pickers of the army"  and sometimes thc "divers for  spoils," but in the present official  organization of the armies thcy rank  as a very important  corps.  Their work too i.s often dangerous  as that of the troops who dash to  the assault, as not only have they to  handle abandoned explosives of the  most perilous kind to touch, but often enough their work has to be carried on under a terrific bombardment.  But    thcy  do    it  as  heroically,   as  stoically and  as methodically as    do  | their  brother  territorials    who  carry  the  hot  soup  up  to  thc fighting  line  through    a barrage of machine    gun  j lire, shrapnel and high explosives.  First   there   are   the  unused    shells  which  the batteries  and  trench  mortars  had  to abandon  as  thcy dashed  forward.  Sometimes  they lie  in piles  of  half  a  dozen  or  more  and  sonic-  times scattered singly about.  But every one is exceedingly valuable for the metal of which it is  made, for thc high explosives it contains, for thc skill and genius that  has gone into the construction of its  highly perfected fuse and mechanism.  Less delicately made trench bombs  and aerial torpedoes arc likewise  gathered up.  Ivlost dangerous are tlie unexplod-  ed German shells -which lie scattered  about. Thcy may explode at thc  first human touch, but nevertheless  they must be gathered up both for  thc removal of such a menace and  for the value of thc material they  contain.  Then come thc hand grenades.  These may have been abandoned, or  dropped by thc "poilu" as he dashed  forward to the assault ' Or again  they* may be. unexploded ones, either  allied or German, which may still  go off at the first touch. But thcy  must be gathered  up.  In another pile are heaped up the  steel helmets gathered from the field.  Thcy again may have fallen from  thc head of a soldier in the heat of  a charge or may have fallen to the  ground  as   the  wearer    himself    fell  *-..-! *.1 1,11..  plClll.CU     Willi     .1    LMllldl.  Kven when the helmets themselves  are. riddled with bullets and shell  splintered 1lte steel they contain is  still  loo  valuable  to  leave behind.  On every battlefield hundreds of  thousands of rifle cartridges, both  exploded and unexploded, lie. scattered about. These must, be gathered up one ill a time, often under a  heavy   artillery   fire.  Then there are. the bayonets or  rides that the soldier may have been  forced lo abandon or that fell from  hi.-, ne.-v, el.. >.s h.iin'n as his liiY ebbed  away. I.Uil no matter how they came  to be there they must be saved.  After this come the knapsack, the  canteens, the straps, the old shoes,  the caps, the coats, the overcoats^ the  thousand and one different things  that lie in flic trail of thousands of  men who have dashed forward in a  welter where no attention can he  paid to anything except to altain the  ohjt el a: : ii-ned :-.nd :till live if po-'  sib'lr.  HAMMER BLOWS THAT STRENGTHEN GOOD METAL  Premier Lloyd George  Points Out That If, For Any Cause, the  Allies Fail To Succeed, This Will Be a Sorry World To Live  In, Under Domination Of the Hun  ').';  Idol-  Is iiHllin*',  ��������� nil  Wo  Premier David Lloyd George, in  replying to a toast to thc success of  thc entente allied arms at the dinner  of the Printers' Society of London,  said that Britishers have made unsurpassed sacrifices for a great purpose and a high ideal.  One of the most encouraging  things, tbc premier continued, was  the "superb valor and the trained  skill with which thc Americans have  taken their part in. the struggle and  defeated the foe. It is a most encouraging thing, because there has  been a great flow of these troops  and we were depending on them."  "If, for any cause the allies fail  to succeed, it will be a sorry world  to live in," Mr. Lloyd George said.  (.Tj.       Z ���������       --~i��������� ��������� -.~"l~l  r.

"Thc fate of  the world, thc destinies of men and  the lives of generations would be  fashioned by the failure, or triumph  of our cause.  "If the Prussians^ should succeed  today, they would fling back civilization into the dark dungeons of thc  past. We are paying a big price, a  sad price, for victory, but the sum  total of human -wretchedness which  has been paid will not equal in value  that which wc are defending. Wc  arc passing through anxious days  and the crisis is not yet passed, but  with stout hearts, we shall win  through and then woe to the plague.  In the interest of civilization, in the  interest of thc human race, it must  be stamped out. You cannot allow it  to come again to darken the lives  of millions and desolate millions of,  homes."  In his reference to the Americans,  the premier said:  "I have just returned from France  where I met a French statesman,  who had been at the battlcfront soon  after an engagement where thc  Americans fought. He. was full of  admiration, not merely for their superb valor, but for thc trained skill  with which thcy attacked and defeated the foe.  "His report of thc conduct of the  American troops, a division which  had been in action for the. first time,  was one of the most encouraging  things that I have heard. We. know  that whenever they appear in thc  battle lino, thcy will fight in a way  worthy of the great traditions of  their great country. This is in itself a source of support, sustenance,  and encouragement to all those, who  with anxious hearts arc watching the  conflict  going on   in   France,"  In conclusion Premier Lloyd  George  said:  "Wc have faced ,n great crisis. We  have heard von Ludendorff's threat  of hammer blows. Hammer blows  would crush poor metal, but they  harden and consolidate good metal.  There is good metal in llrilish hearts  and it has stood the lest ol* centuries. It will stand this, so will that  gallant people, across the channel,  who are fighting for������the honor of  'heir  native,  land.  "I never saw a sign of wavering  in any French face. Thcy arc full of  courage and determination, and it ia  a United France morCNfian ever.  "Unity and resolution arc two  qualities Ave need. We have sunk  our political difference. Wc have  bigger things to think about. These  differences will come again, but for  thc moment wc have one purpose.  "Let us be one people, one in aim,  one in courage and the resolve never to give in. Let Britain stand like  a great breakwater against this current, and God willing, wo will break-  its force."  Long Range Guns  C5\. r\77.^r.  IT  xn  General   Early  914 by Bertha Krupp When  Visiting Essen  The Daily Chronicle's Paris correspondent says that the long range  cannon with which the Germans are  bombarding Paris, were invented  several years ago. A model was  shown to an American general eariv  in 1914, by Frau Bertha Krupp von  Bohen Undclbach (principal owner  of thc Krupp works, Hersel). "The  gun," says the report, "was shown to  thc American when he visited J-.ssen  on an official mission. He had been  taken all through the vast Krupp  works escorted by a swarm of technical experts and was about to retire when Frau Bertha dismissed all  the party except two confidential  members of the firm, and with the  latter conducted thc general to a  secret room.  "Here the visitor's attention was  attracted by two immense cannon  with extremely long tubes and of  relatively small diameter. Frau  Bertha said in excellent .English,  'These are the gitiis you ought to  orde**- for thc Panama Canal defence.'  Thcy carry ninety miles, are guaranteed and cost $240,000 each. Ot  course, these are only trial guns and  they cannot fire more than 20 to  25 shells without being repaired. But  you can appreciate the intimaginary  resulls which will be obtained by  the. nation that iirst ctnplovs such  guns."

It is because    Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills  actually  make   new     rich  blood  that  this  medicine  has     cured  extreme  nervous  disorders  after    all  other treatment had failed. The nerves   thrive  on  the  new  blood    made  by these pills; the appetite improves,  digestion  is. better, sleeplessness    no  longer   troubles  the     former     nerve-  shattered victim,  and life    generally  takes  on  a   cheerful  aspect.

Dandelions as Food  Cornell University has published a  card "Dandelions as Food," which  explains how some benefit may be  obtained from this yellow flowering  plant which prevents the lawns from  being beautiful.

Dandelion greens are valuable in this  respect also and may be used to  supplement"the staple foods and give  variety to the menu.

CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, AUG.   9  It' there is any institution in the  country these days that, can be  said to strike the happy medium  between the ultra optimistic and  the unduly pessimistic���������with a  leanings if a^yv toward the latter���������  surely it is the Canadian banking  system. Coming from such a  source the following from the end-  of-July statement on the crop outlook issued by the Bank of Commerce will be read with confidence  and some satisfaction :  "It is generally admitted that  the cereal crops of the year are not  likely to be above the average and  this should be an incentive to  greater economy. In some of the  mobt productive portions of the  West the prole?-gee! drought before  the recent rains has done considerable injury, but there is still a hope  justified by the experience of previous years that unforseen recoveries will take place.  * It was expected, in 'view of the  great need of foodstuffs, that a  larger crop than usual would be obtained, but present indications are  that the yield will be somewhat  below the average, though the total  crop, as a result of the larger acreage seeded, promises to exceed that  of last year. Fodder crops, too, in  some districts are below the average and pasturage has been only  fairly good, so that the output of  dairy produce has been curtailed to  some extent. Better prospects  exist with regard to mixed grains.  "The fruit crop on the whole will  be an average one and generally  speaking the produce of the fields  and orchards will permit of our exports from these sources being  maintained on the same level as  last year, provided that weather  conditions are favorable for the  rest of the season."  that in any division of the lands  the size  of the white  population  and the importance of a plentiful  supply of good feed for present as������  future herds of such residents shall  be given the full importance it deserves in comparison with the 187  or so Indian residents and the class  of cattle they are now producing.  An allocation of these lands in view  of present and future population requirements   should   be    eminently  satisfactory all round.  Along with regulating the Indians' activities and keeping the  whites within due bounds in the  premises, Mr. Smith might find it  well to set aside an area for pasturage purposes, devoting the rest to  hay growing exclusively for a term  of years���������if reclamation does not  eventuate. "With these two details  definitely arid religiously observed  we fancy the matter of having the  permits issued as to cutting- areas  respected would not be a serious  matter, and it would then only be  a master of a short time till the  flats were producing more hay and  of better quality than most of our  haycutters can recall as obtaining  on these overflowed lands.  "Without bein*' unduly fulsome  one can say that Mr. Smith looks  all over like the right sort of official  to tackle the job, and that given  half a chance he will see it through  without fear or favor���������or know the  reason why. The job is nat altogether an easy one, but it will  never be settled until it is settled  right, and A.D. 1918 looks as good  a year as any to'get on with the  work he has in hand.  trading department, surely the Institute is in a position to back up  causes that directly interests the  membership much snore effectively  than the board of trade with 20  members at $!5 a head���������to say  nothing of the added prestige due  to the larger membership.

Oj7  it is with every local organization,  the patriotic sort included.  A community or industry that  has not enough public-spirited men  in it to look after its interests need  not be surprised if the world at  larae gets the idea that such community or industry has no intef est������  worth looking after.

Hence the t.iinlineas  of Mr. Smith's arrival on the  .-K-one.  Coincident, with the increasing  herds of the. whiten we are aim> face  to   face   with   tho  name   condition  In some quarters Creston Farmers' Institute is coming in for criticism because it was not directly  representod in such numbers as a  goodly cash balance on hand would  petmit, at the Western Carada Irrigation Congress at Nelson last  month.  The argument put forth in this  case is not that even two accredited   delegates   were    necessary   to  bring  back  a  complete   report of  the convention doings, but rather,  seeing Creston has had the department of  lands make an irrigation  system survey, and the looal M.P.P.  has gone so far with the proposition  as to have the government go easy  on its irrigation financing so as to  have  funds   available  in case the  Valley  should   decide   to  go   into  irrigation, and whereas the minister of that  particular department  was chairman of the irrigation congress sessions, it really did not look  as if we aro so awfully interested in  the project with only three citizens  in   attendance,   and none of   them  representing  a  farmers' organization���������and   tho  convention   almost  next door to Creston, too.  Undoubtedly if the rahchors are  in earnest as to getting on with  irrigation���������always providod tho  cost is not prohibitive���������a splendid  opportunity was missed of impressing on the higher-ups of tho irrigation department our good faith in  the matter insofar as the situation  lias developed.

Miguasha Foint, Que., (Special).���������  More evidence crops up in this vicinity every day to prove that for  rundown people there is no remedy  to equal Dodd's Kidney Pills. Among  the many who have come forward  with statements is Air. Paul Landry,  a well-known resident, whose testimony can easily be corroborated.  "Jt is with great pleasure, that I  write to tell you your Dodd's Kidney  Pills arc the best medicine that 1  have ever taken," Mr. Landry states.  "When 1 commenced to take them  there was not much hope for mc  After taking four boxes I fell: like  myself again. I advise all persons  who suffer from kidnev disease to  take Dodd's Kidney Pills."  Dodd's Is.id1.e3- Pills are popular all  over this country, because they not  only cure the pains and aches of the  different diseases springing from disordered kidncj-s, but also give new  Iiie and energy all over the bod>*.  They do this naturally. They cure  thc kidneys. Cured kidneys strain all  the impurities out of the blood, and  the pure blood carries nutriment instead of poison to all the nerves and  muscles. You have never heard of  3 person Dodd's Kidney Pills harmed. You hear of thousands who have  benefited  bv   them.  Admirable  Working  tern Wherever  The permit system of regulating-  settlers' clearing tires is now in effect throughout nearly all the forest  regions of Canada. Last year, legislation to bring it into force was  adopted in Ontario, Manitoba and  Saskatchewan. This year, the new  Fire Act in New Brunswick makes  the plan effective throughout that  province. In Nova Scouu, Quebec,  and British. Columbia, the system  lias been in effect for years. Alberta is now tlie only forest province  without it.  Wherever the setting out of setters' clearing fires has been regulated under the permit system, with an  adequate staff for its enforcement, it  lias worked wonders in reducing the  forest fire losses, with no real setback  to  agricultural "development.  The disposal of logging slash by  fire, under control, is a problem  closely related to that of slash resulting from settlers' clearing operations. In various parts of Canada,  the. safe disposal of logging slash is  receiving increased attention, due to  the rapidly increasing stumpage value of timber and to the realization  that our forest resources arc by^ no  means inexhaustible.���������C.L., in Conservation.

The assets have  been rigorously scrutinised, aud thc  sum of $400,000 was appropriated  out of profits for the contingent fund  for the making good of any depreciation.  In spite of thc expansion in current loans, the proportion of liquid  assets lo liabilities is still high  enough for the most conservative  requirements. Thc cash and readily  realizable assets now total $57,667,481  against public liabilities amounting  to $126,322,671, or in the proportion  of 45.6 per cent. About 34 millions  of these liquid assets is in thc form'  of cash, bank balances and call  loans, and the remainder consists  largely of government securities of  the Dominion, thc Provinces and  Great Britain.

Thc girl nodded comprehension
and. passing the lodge gates of Buls-
trode, Sir Anthony increased the
speed to the stipulated pace, two
minutes later, as thcy rushed on to
the' danger zone, raising it to nearer
sixty than fifty miles an hour. The
splendid - machine Avas behaving
nobly. The. reckless Tony, Avith a
clear road in front of him, Avas already counting the Avager as won,
when, instead of the solitary blue
coat lie had expected'in front of him,
his Avay Avas blocked by three constables and a sergeant. It was no
case of steering around a single man.
Either thc police Avould have to scatter or they would be run down���unless he pulled no.
That he was not for thc latter alterative was soon apparent. Setting
his teeth he bent forward, taking
thc wheel in a firmer grip.
"Mind! I'm Morgan if
trouble/' hc bellowed in his
ion's ear.
What would have happened will
never be knoAvn���whether the men in
blue avouUI have stood their ground,
or avoided almost certain dcatli by
springing to the right and left at the
last moment. For Avhen the car was
within fifty yards of them Laura
Gaspard's nerve scorned cuddenly to
fail her. With a piercing shriek she
half rose in her y,c;\.\. ami then sank
hack, lurching violently against lhc
driver. For an instant he lost control of the wheel and thc ear swerved into the hedge, by a miracle remaining  upright.
Sir Anthony hacked out, but before he. could resume his mad rush
the police officers were at the door of
the car. Keeping one hand on the
wheel, Sir Anthony sent his right
fist crashing into the sergeant's face,
then,''jumping into the road, be
knocked down the nearest constable.
But the odds Avcre to heavy. Before he. could recover himself the.
other two had Hung themselves upon
him and handcuffs were snapped upon his wrists.
"Gosh! hut that was warm while il
lasted," he panted, grinning a little
ruefully at his captors. "Where, are
you going to take,  me, boys?"
"You'll' have to come along to
Slough," replied the sergeant, busy
with a broken tooth. "Telly sessions tomorrow. One of my nun
can drive, so avc.'II take yon in your
car, as it will be wanted in evidence."
"Sounds all right," said Sir Anthony. And llii'tt, id-.tneim* al T.aui'a.
sitting \-idc and becoming agitated in
the car, lie added: "lhil Avhat about

He raised the Avinc to his lips
again, this time sniffing the excellent
aroma before he drank.. Then he delivered himself, dropping out his
words  like   an   oracle  of   old:
"'When a married Avoman dies by
violence it is a h'axiom with us, Mr.
Jevons, iu the absence of other clues,
to suspect the husband. It is a horrible commentary on thc supposed
bliss of thc married state, but it has
been proved correct over and over
"Nasty one for 'The Voice that
breathed o'er Eden,' and all that sort
of thing, ch, Mr. Noakes?" was the
butler's   comment.
"I wouldn't go so far as that, such
cases being rare,"  the officer rejoined with deep solemnity. "In my oavii
experience,   thank     God,   they     have
been very rare, but you  can  take it
from mc, Mr. Jevons, that the theory
has mostly been  found correct'when
such cases do     crop up:.   That    was

thc other, unobtrusively tilting the
decanter oArcr the glass that met him

Thc superintendent sagely Avag-
ged his great head. "I suppose he
did it iu 'ot blood," he surmised.
" 'Tisn't a practice I should recommend, but on the whole it's as avcII
hc lost his temper this time. It has
saved himself and mc a heap of
trouble iu clearing that h'axiom out
of the Avay. He must have been
scrapping Avith the police three hundred miles away al the very moment*
his poor lady Avas being murdered
here in Comlyn. No room for doubt
about it. I've got it all in black and
white from the Bucks Constabulary.
He was lined ten pounds for exceeding thc speed limit, and thirty for
resisting thc police."
The. conversation was  taking place
in   the  pantry  at      Comlyn       Court,
Avhcrc  the inq-icst on   Lydia  Morgan
had  been  opened that afternoon  and
adjourned  for a  week.    The  coroner
had been  compelled  to  postpone  the
opening   for  tAventy-four  hours     owing to   Mr.   Morgan's   in.ibslity^ to   attend  for  the  reason just detailed  by
Mr.  Noakes.    Tlie  proceedings     that
day had been little more than formal,
no  evidence being produced   to  shed
any light on the identity of the poor
lady's'murderer;  Doctor  Kyrle,    the
local  practitioner,  had     testified      to
the cause of death���a bullet    wound
through   the.  brain.       Mavis   Comljm,
calm   and  self-possessed,    had      described  her discovery of  the  body  in
the orchid house and  the  smell     of
gunpowder,   without   however,     mentioning  the man who had lied on  to
the terrace Ihrough the  further door.
And   levons,  thc butler,  had  corroborated   her  story,   supplementing  _ it
with   is   own     subsequent     activities,
Mr.  Morgan,  the. final witness of the
day, had briefly stated t-hat  so far as
he" was   aware   his   wife  had   no   enemies,   expressing   his   belief   that   she
must   have   been   killed   for   the.  valuable jewellery that was missing from
her person, worth from three to four
thousand  pounds.

Sufficient Sugar for Canning
Housekeepers wlio are anxious
about their presen-cs for next Avinter
may take comfort. The food board
announces that thc~c v.ill be sufficient sugar in the country for the
preserving and canning season and
that the maximum fruit and vegetable crops that can be produced in
this country will be taken care of,
so far as thc sugar supply is concerned. To make sure of this, however, strict conservation _ will be
necessary in  thc meantime.
Increased Garden Acreage
Mr. F. Abraham, honorary chairman of thc vacant lot and home
garden section of the Canada food
board, estimates an increased garden
acreage, of ai. least 200% over that of

Great Britain's Fart
Immense Efforts Put Out in   Many
The many-sidedness of Great Britain's contribution to the war might
Avell be kept more than it is before
the eyes of the Avorld. Hoav many
people, for instance, realize that
Great Britain is clothing American
troops iu France, and providing
nearly all their armament except artillery?
How many people realize that
down to January 12, 1917, Great
Britain had advanced not less than
��1,186,000,000 to her allies aud
��175,000,000 to her dominions; that
slie transports a daily average of
over 7,000 pcrr.oimo!; and more than
30,000 tons of military supplies to
France; that to thc end of Angus',
1917, her navy aud mercantile marine
had transported and protected across
the sea some 13,000,000 of- personnel
Avith ihe loss of only 3,500 all together?
The scale of thc navy's Avork in
particular is far too little 'appreciated.
Its burdens extend much beyond lha
,420,000 A\ho now man our ships. For
instance, the royal dockyards sinc<j
tiie beginning of tho war have repaired 31,470 war vessels, exclusive
of the great amount of repair work
done on  allied  ships.
These branches oi British war effort represe. t a strain for which
tliere is practically no German equivalent, and are. too often left out ol
account in comparing the other
branches of activity, which afYecl
Great Britain and Germany alike,
���such as the provision of man-power
for the army, the supply of nnmi-
tiors or the   manufacture  of aircraft.
