The shooting season closes on Sunday, and the take of deer has been the  .lightest ever. Eyen the Indians were  not here as numerously as other years.  . Ernest Buckman, section '.foreman  at the Loop, was taken to Cranbrook  hospital for treatment on Thursday  last. His health is rather . badly run  down, and he will recuperate in that  institution for- a couple of weeks at  least.  Dr, Henderson of Creston, accompanied by W, B. Embree were visitors here on Thursday last, making the  trin on the former's sneeder.  Geo. Johnson of Creston was here  on Wednesday helping wiih the loading-out of a car of cattle at Kootenay  Landing for the P, Bums Co. at Nelson.

Owing to such an;, abundant supply  of rain during October and November,  Mayor Little is out^with the prediction that the "Valley's snowfall will be  light this winter. Some of the Indians,  however, make the reverse prediction,  assuring that the white goods will pile  up about seven squaws deep���������horizontally considered, we trust.  Local shipme^aVof apples have been  quite heavy the^past couple of weeks  and the estimate of this fruit still left  in the Valley is placed at about 3000  boxes. These wboare holding them  are getting theni out as fast as poss-  ible as the fruit has a tendency to ripen up fast, some varieties being a  month ahead of time, and, in consequence, are not "standing up'4 as in  former years.  J. McBain, who has made an extended yisit with his brother-in-law,  W. B. Embree, left On Tuesday on  his return to his home at Boston,  Mass. His stay' here was primarily  for the benefit of his health which  shows decided .improvement.

He had  been n residen of  Vernon   for  about  six ycars and while here followed   his  trade as a curpenter.    He was ftt.years  of age.    He was a man whose upright  character and unquestioned   integrity  won him the respect and esteem of all  who knew him, and his death is deeply regretaed by many sincere friends.

Although the flu situation continues favorable, with no new cases reported this week, the ban will be con  tinned for another week at least. To  The Review Dr. Henderson yesterday stated that if the situation continues as favorable as at present the lid  may come off on Friday next, Deo. 20,  when the usual public actiyities  luay be resumed, except dances, which  further and  definite notice is giveu.  Emergency hospital affairs were  wound up the end of the week with  the retuen of the beds, etc., to the  King Geoige Hotel, W. W. Hall  (Erickson) and others who had loaned  them. The total expense incurred  while the hospital was in operation  wiis slightly over $400, and when the  collectable patients' fees aro deducted  from this the provincial health depart  ment will be asked to fnrnioh the balance of the finance needed to square  things up.  G. F. Horspool, a former "Bank of  Commerce employee here, who went  overseas with the 51th Battalion from  Cranbrook, and of whom many reports have been heard as to the extent  of Ids recent wounds, including one  that stated he had lost both eyes as  well as an ear, seems to haye been  fur more fortunate than Htated.

The "Vernon News states that Okanagan growers will receive 40 per cent,  better prices for apples and crabappies  this year as compared with 1917, and  on soft fruits the increased price is  from 10 to 25 per cent.  The smelter at Grand Porks .will  continue to operate so long as it can  make ends meet, but states that at*  present its margin of profit is about a  cent a pound on all copper ore handled from its Phoenix mines.

Some time ago it was stated by officials   that   the  American  brand     of j  mustard gas    would    be    one-fourth  more  toxic than the kind used     by  Germany.    This may or may not be  true but one German order issued in  July to the Huns facing the Arueri-  cans  northwest of    Chateau-Thierry,  states that one attack by the    Yankees   produced 500  casualties.

The local member, John Keen,  can be relied on to keep things  moving at Victoria. Both ends of  his constituency stand to benefit  by reclamation, and he has never  been backward in stating his determination to keep the project before the government until action is  is taken or good cause shown why  it should not be tackled.

With regard to the next  car the order cards should reach you  to-day, but before making out your  order please give this letter a third  reading. Bran and shorts are very  scarce and hard to get, though I wiii  jju ohi.a i^ty deliver fii^e ton5* of sho-**"-'*'  and three tons of bran.  This week I have arranged with my  milluien to supply me with a mill-run  Oat Feed. This feed is pure oat hulls  finely ground with a percentage of  oat flour mixed. I have had a sample  of this feed sent me and have tried it  out with several of my neighbors hogs  and cattle and they eat it. greedily.  The price vvlll not be snore than $1.90  per hundred pounds, and I think some  less. Please include a sack of this in  your order.  I have also arranged with my mill-  men to supply me with Oilcake Meal  in 10-pound sacks for around 60 cents.  There is nothing in the world that  quals Oilcake Meal for putting a glossy  coat oc������ horse, cow or pig, and think  how cheap it is. It will be still cheaper in 100-pound sacks.  If you wish whole wheat or graham  flour order it on the cards and if possible I will procure it for you. I think  a nice order for your pigs or cows  would be: One 10-pound sack Oilcake  Meal, one sack of shorts, one __of unill-  run Oat Feed, and one of our choice  Chop Barley.  Our bran and shorts are away a-  head of anything that is sold in this  Valley, and our flour has such a " reputation that I* sold hundreds of dollars  worth more than I expected. The  floar will be less in price this time.  <oThe lust car I ordered over $500 of  product., in addition to what was on  the order cardb, aud tlie whole car waa  sold in two days, though It took a  little longer to get it delivered. If  the people order a full   cur,   which   I  believe they will, it will be impossible  for me to add to same, so please be  sure you get your order in not later  than Dec. 17th.

WIN  TORONTO.CAHADA  NIPEG * MONTREAL  Perhaps the most famous woman  that ever lived was Mother Goose.  Other women, particularly a few  bad ones, have enjoyed celebrity,  but she achieved immortality.  She is called Mother Goose because, that was her name. For she  was a real person, and-dwelt in the  city of Boston. She lived in a little  one-story house with a roof that  sloped almost down to the ground���������  just such a house as one might expect Mother Goose to occupy���������not  far from the Common.  The house vanished long ago, but  the church in which she was accustomed regularly to worship still  stands. . It is the famous Old South  Church.  Her maiden name was Elizabeth  Foster. In fact, she was an old maid,  twcnlv-eicrht vears of aere���������Quite elderly for an unmarried woman in  those days���������when, in 1665, she met  and became the wife of Isaac Goose.  She    had    children and grandchildren, and it was for the latter that she  j wrote her    Thymes, which were first  j published by Thomas Fleet, her son-  in-law, in Boston, in 1716.  Mother Goose died in 1757, aged  ninety-two.  The lioad to Berlin  i  the  Doesn't Pay This Time  War Is Worst Kind of Bad Business  For the Kaiser  * One of the sayings of the kaiser  that found much favor with his deluded people was this: "Manufacturing pays 5 per cent.; international  trade, 15 per cent., but,war pays 1,-  000 per cent."    Hc  was speaking of previous  wars'  when   he   said  that,  and  holding   out  _hopes  concerning  this one.  In former wars against Austria,  Denmark, and France, the Prussian  militarists got results which enabled  them to talk to business men about  war as the biggest of all business  enterprises. There were provinces  and seaports, rivers, canals, mines  and ore deposits to be annexed; there  were rich territories to be looted and  great war indemnities to be levied.  The whole thing was so simple that  even the stupidest German could  understand it. War paid against the  Danes,- Austrians, and French, and it  was but necessary to be ready, strong  and ruthless, and on a much larger  scale it could be made to -pay enormously.    So at it they; went.  P  It isn't going to pay ihis time.  Tliat is one thing that the world  . means to make sure of���������-that this  war does not pay Prussia and Germany, that it has not been good  business, but bad, disastrous business, and a class of undertaking never agam to be thought of as a means  of profit and advantage. The Prussian big business method has got to  be discredited in Prussia.  It is not enough, therefore, for  the Huns to get out of France and  vacate and restore Belgium. They  cannot be allowed to "make war  pay" nt the expense of Russia. They  have got to come out of this war  knowing that war doesn't pay, but is  thc worst kind of bad business ever  attempted. Talk is of no use in this  matter. They have got to be shown  that war is a thing out of which thcy  emerge very bad losers. Then they  will settle down to a new way of  thinking.

Racing at high speed  across rough ground, he drove- his  machine into a runaway parachute  that was dragging the office?* to his  death. The latter had made a practice parachute jump of 2,000 feet from  an observation balloon. A high wind  had carried him ?. considerable distance, and in landing he became hopelessly entangled in the cordage. The  parachute was caught by a strong  air current and bfown at teriffic speed  across the field, pulling its helpless  prisoner with it. At the same instant the cyclist, passing along o  nearby motor road, saw thc officer's  plight. He swerved his machine into  the field, and raced at top speed  squarely- into the middle of the bellied parachute. The ropes fouled  the machine and the weight of the  latter anchored the derelict against  j further movement.  \JmjK  ILrOU don't believe in JLiie Insurance!

For this they incited the army to mutiny, raised the  mob, started civil war, which all other factions were trying to prevent,  and published the secret treaties of  the aiiies in-order to bring the issues  of the war into discredit with the  proletariat the world over. None of  Lcnine's hopes was fulfilled. Thc allies refused to stop the war at his  bidding, and not even his wrecking  Russia could force them to make  peace.

A German prisoner escaped from an internment  camp, and to facilitate recapture a  description of the man was circulated.

November vital statistics for the  Valley show ten deaths, three girths  and one marriage. The flu is largely  responsible for giving us the highest  monthly death rate experienced here.   .

Y for the  past eleven months, arrived home on  Monday to spend Christmas with his  parents, haying just received bis discbarge from military duty.  Every available masi and gun has  been in the hills some time this week  in quest of deer, the light snowfalls im  Monday and Tuesday snornings making the hunting particularly attaact-  ive. So far this year it is Jdoubtful if  ths whites have accounted for a dozen deer for the entire season.

His little daughter, Dorothy,  has gone with him. Mrs. Rycknan  will follow as soon as she recuperates  from a very severe attack of the flu.  The Fanners Institute has fixed on  $7.50 per ton for flats hay at the stack.  The absence of snow up till the pres  _.nt is greatly appreciated by the stockmen. Due to the excessuvely wet  weather that set in before some of the  stacks had been covered it is feared  there will be considerable lass of feed  of this sort. ".

The flu has been decidedly inconsiderate of the church organizations.  Owing to the epidemic both the Presbyterians and Anglicans have had to  forego their annual bazaars. At.  present it looks, too. as if the peace  thanksgiving services might also have  to go by the board or stand over until the new year.
