Owing to the limited staff  and crowded accomodation such as  might call just out of curiosity are  asked to stay away for the present.  Mrs. Mallandaine was called to Fernie tho fora'part of the week to nurse  her bit-ler, Mrs. Iryitie, and family,  who are down with the flu. The epidemic has hit Pernio hard, live doctors hardly being able to handle the  trouble, which was at its height over  tho week-end.  Friends of Mrs. Wm.

For the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1918, Canada sold on  credit to^ Great Britain and the Allies more than $46,000,000 worth  or metals, the greater part of which were "produced from the  mines of British Columbia. That was more than three times the  average exports for the three preceding years.  The Victory Loan 1917 made this  production p ss'.ble because it enabled  Canada to give credit to Great Britain  and tlie allies for their metal purchases  in this country.  Without this market the mines and  smelters of British Columbia could not  have ..sold*their outputs.  But the mines have had a market  for   their  ores.

This production has not only  brought prosperous times to the miners  but it has been a mighty factor in helping to win the war, for these metals  were absolutely necessary to the production of munitions in both Canada  and Europe.

Princess on Sub Trip  The Crown Princess of Germany,  accompanied by the Grand Duke of  Mecklenburg' and the Princess of  Brunswick, has made a submarine  trip to Heligoland, according to German newspapers, which add that she  did not secure the consent of the  emporer or the crown prince before  leaving. This was the first submarine  trip the Crown Princess ever took,  and. the newspapers of Berlin observe  tl_at_.it was all very well to make the  venture once, but that the future empress should not risk her life in  "such experiments."  Cards For Ciothing Now  In Vienna���������Government Has  to Aid  Thc prices of clothing in Austria  have now reached such an enormous  figure that the government is., obliged to extend thc* privilege'of a permit for thc purchase of state clothing to middle class families. Persons  with incomes of $3,200 are now classed with the paupers, says the New  York World.  To meet their pressing needs the  government is organizing special  bureaus for thc sale of men's suits  from $35 to $75, men's and -women's  winter coats at from $32 to $67, women's suits at from $28 to $70, and  waists from $2 to $15. The demand  for C-Othin**-*- is colossal, especially  from the great middle class, which  is unable to pay tailors $200 for ordinary suits.  In the past six months the government has sold clothing worth $750,-  000 monthly and still has several  million yards of woollen goods. The  factories of Vienna and lower Austria are busy making for winter  needs. The stores must be content  with a 10 -oer cent, commission. The  government warns the public that it  lacks knitted goods  of all kinds.  For the thousands who are unable  to pay the prices quoted thc government will open a second hand clothing bureau in October, after requisitioning thc stocks of the old clothes  stores. These goods will be repaired  and disinfected and sold from $8 to  $20 for men's suits, from $10 to $40  for overcoats and $16 for trousers.  Purchasers of state clothing must  present an official permit showing  the return of the" used garments corresponding to those purchased. Recently thieves entered the official  clothing bureau at Vienna and stole  hundreds of permits, with which they  bought suits at $50. reselling them  for $150.

A process of electrical welding was  used for 'oinin0" the elates- in t������1?.-*-.  of the usual riveting and caulking.  By means of an electric arc, the  joints are submitted to intense heat,  and the plates are fused together.  Thc process is not entirely new, as  auxiliary work has been done in the  past by electric welding. During the  last year, developments have been  made which have permitted of the  extension of this method in ship  construction. A saving of between  twenty and twenty-five per cent. _ is  saved in both lime and iuaterisl,  judging from experimental work  done on the. new vessel just launched.  The general adoption of electrical  welding in shipbuilding would permit a material speeding-up of production. The electric process is particularly economical in the assembling oi bulkheads, deck structures and  other interior work. Thc United  States is keeping iu touch with the  developments in this work in Great  Britain, and arrangements are under  way for the construction of several  10,000-ton standard ships by the same  process. These large vessels . will  contain about 2j/_i per cent, of the  number of rivets originally intended,  while the British boat was absolutely  I'ivetlcss.  A Youthful Diplomat  Mamma���������Now.

Your  reply simplifies my task and saves  me the anguish*" of having to wound  vou. For there Is not a shado"' cf  doubt but that Sir Anthony West  did kill Mrs.  Morgan."  "Father!"  "Yes; Morgan has absolute proof  of it. He himself, if hc chose, would  be an important witness and in addition to village folk there are members of his household���������his butler and  a maid servant���������who saw Sir Anthony at the Court that da3r- Out of  consideration for us���������for you principally, I believe���������he got tliat evidence  suppressed at the inquest and denied  himself the righteous vengeance of  bringing his wife's murderer to justice.    A very noble fellow, Mavis."  The panegyric left the girl unmoved. But how she longed that Tony,  by his secretiveness, had not withdrawn from her the power to champion his cause. As it was, indignant  as she was at his lack of confidence  in her and at the reason she assign-  Ji  I  (Continued.)  "So you refused him?"  "I told him what I knew that you  would have told him yourself, unless  there is something behind which I  do not understand. I told .him that  you would never look to charity as  a means for regaining our ancient  birthright. Yes, I refused him in the  most decided terms."  "But it isn't going to be charity,"  Mr. Comlyn protested with a vigor  which he instantly corrected by leaning back and pressing his hands to  his head. "These excruciating neuralgic pains!" he apologized. "No, it  wouldn't be charity at all," he went  on with an air of having bravely  mastered thc spasm. "Morgan was  most delicate in mooting his proposal  ���������nothing to hurt my sensitiveness or  yours. He  merely  hinted,  in    the  kindest fashion, that if he was allied  to tiie family ihe interests of iii__  family would naturally be his, and  that hc had a scheme for setting me  on my legs again by developing what  he called 'the natural resources "of thc  eStatc." I haven't the least idea what  he. meant, and lie made it pretty clear  ihat he wouldn't explain���������unless you  accept  him."  Mavis glanced pityingly at the weak  face opposite, and then, seeing that  her father had more pity than enough  for himself and none to scare for  her,   she  glowed   with  sudden  anger.  "But I don't like Mr. Morgan, and  he wound up his extraordinary proposal by insulting me. Jf Mr. Clegg  aud Tom hadn't come up I don't  know what would have happened,"  .she  declared.  "Oh.

This time Archibald Comlyn's sigh  was one of gentle tolerance. "You  think that you can, but that, unfortunately for the position you arc  taking up, is the weak point in it,"  he rejoined. "You have just admitted that you are a possible witness,  and Morgan contends that you are a  witness for the prosecution���������if the  matter is pressed home. You are  relying, I presume, on the possession  of a key of the orchid house by the  person you saw leaving by the  northern door?"  The color flew from the girl's face  as though wiped with a cloth, leaving  it .as white as paper. "How does Mr.  Morgan know that I saw anyone in  the orchid house?"  she faltered.  "That is a mere detail," Mr. Com-  I lyn waved the question aside.    "It is  a simple calculation based ou t he  testimony of other witnesses���������chiefly,  I believe, that of his butler, who answered your alarm. The point is that  your key theory can be shattered by  Morgan  himself,     it seems  that    he  G. O. Gets Nervous  When Wrens Come  Women are to Take Places of Men  in Nearly Every Naval  Station  There is a young commanding officer shivering in his shoes at a naval  air station because he has been'told  that a 'number of "Wrens" (members _ of the Women's Royal Naval  Service) are coming to help him.  This is happening at nearly ever.y  naval station where women are lo  take the. places of men. The C.O.'s  are in a "blue funk." The reason is  that they do not understand the women.  The mystery which enshrouds a  woman and charms a man in social  life now hangs like a heavy cloud  upon the C.O.'s spirits. He does not  know what the women will do���������or  not do. He has got to get thc  work done, and the men are leaving  him; in their place he has an uncertain quantity���������very uncertain! hc  says to his junior officers grimly.  Men are exceedingly hard to convince about women's ability. A man  brought up with capable sisters marries an Early Victorian wife. He immediately-forgets the capability and  pins his opinion of women to the  Early Victorian type. Men who have  never had sisters might be excused  if they are not clever typists���������but the  clever typists are the "exceptions."  Every clever woman is an exception  in a man's mind. It takes quite 500  of them to convince him that there  is sonietning in them  after ail.  The-"Waacs'' have been converting the army officers. It-is now thc  turn of the "Wrens" witli the navy  men.  To case their nervousness, a few-  hints may be given on working with  women:  Women arc more conscientious  than men, so do not give them more  than you expect them to do.  t They will be afraid to disobey orders, so do not make any that "need  not be obeyed.  A responsible woman is more dependable than a man.

"His consideration for  us is all nonsense. He is oniy your  tenant up at the Court, and as to his  embroidering Tony and me into lovers it is simply ridiculous.

"My dear daughter, your loyalty to  an old frincd docs you credit, but it  is misleading you sadly," he replied.  "You have put your finger on the  weakest of all weak* spot*-; in the defence which West will have to raise  if he is arraigned on this charge.

Hc braced himself and sat upright iu his high-backed chair, not without a certain dignity.  "Listen to me, Mavis," hc began in  his high-pitched, well-bred voice. "It  is my duty as your father, always I  hope an affctcionatc one, to put a  plain question to you before J deal  with this matter. Has there ever  been anything between you ard Sir  Anthony West beyond a boy and  girl attachment, such as may exist  between young |>eoi������h; who have  known each other Irom childhood?  Any love-making,  1   mean?"  "Tony never spoke a word of love  to   me   except  of   the   kind     that      a  in a flash gambling hell.

And with the memory of  that unexplained interval iu Tony's  admittedly eriatii- life fresh upon her,  the girl adrled: "And if he was .to  begin  the  other  sort  of  love-making  the right about.

Hayes, Editor and Owner,  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, NOV. 15  Is there $40,000 worth of patriotism in the Creston Valley���������from  Kootenay Landing to Kitchener?  That is the challenge throw u-afe^tjs  hy the committee handling the  1918 Victory Loan in the Kaslo  constituency. There was in 1917  ���������and a little to spare.  The whole amount is not required  cast, uuwii. xii can oe paiu on -,ii_*  instalment plan, and arrangements  are completed whereby tiie bank  will carry you absolutely without  charge.  This bit of patriotism is decidedly  practical. It pays.5_? per ce\_t. interest twice annually, and every  dollar of principal you put up will  be returned you at the end of five  or utteen years, just as yo\x wish.  The security offered is the best on  top of God's green earth���������the Dominion of Canada.  $40,000 from Creston district,  with-an estimated population of  not less than 1600, works out at  about $25 per head of our citizenship. Or, to state the situation in  another way, at the time of some  prosperity locally, and likewise.at a  time when for Canada a friend in  need is a friend indeed, are we, collectively, going so grade lower than  $25 Canadians���������and on a dividend-  paying proposition.  In unknown graves in France  sleep more than a score of friends of  the good old days. They gave  their lives���������themseiyes���������for Canada. We are only asked to lend a  paltry $25 per capita tp sea this  horrible affair through to'a victorious peace.  Surely the stay-at-homes in the  Creston countrv, with its magnificent showing of almost one in ten  of its citizenship in khaki- will not  at this stage of the struggle demean themselves by falling short of  .1        c* a (\ r./\t-.   . . .      .1 an  i lie* aiu.uuw i-e.jue--.teu   on   situn  lav-  urable terms, and   under such auspicious circumstances.

Creston Valley's quota of $40,000  ���������by way of a loan���������works, out at  less than $400 per man vrho has  seen overseas service, if one may-  state the case in suth a matter of'  fact sort of a way. Which being  interpreted means are we prepared  to tangibly acknowledge that our  fighting men were worth $100  each for every year of the war.  Not for four hundred times four  hundred dollars would any mother,  father, wife hereabouts have given  over one of these veterans. And  shall any of us for whom these  offered their lives in this titanic  struggle so far forget our obligation  to Canada as to fail her at this  time when-she asks us to now lend  a sum much smaller than we, even j  four months ago, hoped would  bring us victory.  Just what you can afford cannot  be the measure of your patriotism  now. '-Just  to "buy a _Bond'[ arid  wear a Victory Loan button is not  enough to-day.    Even if it satisfies  others, it wiii  not satisfy yourself, j  The Victory Loan makes a call  on your patriotism.    Your patriotism is  measured by your capacity  for sacrifice.    So you have to buy  more than the Bonds���������that yon can  afford to buy.    It is the one more  Bond that you can't afford, the one  more  bond  so  big that to buy it  really  hurts,   that  will   give   you  your  share  in  the spirit of  these  sacrificial days.  The hour calls to you for sacrifice. Our boys at the front are  waiting for your answer. Act���������  and act promptly.

We subscribed  almost $2000 ; and paid in the  asked-for $800 within thirty daye  of the time of asking.  A year ago $25,000 was espeeted  of us for the 1917 Victory Loan,  and the valley never stopped 'until  $42r000 of it was taken up.  This spring the Y.M.C.A. asked  for $1000 aud we delivered $1200.  And this fall when the Knights of  Columbus would have been satisfied  with $200 we made it $264 for  good luck.  Tlie former and the two latter  of these were purely freo. will donations to worthy causes, and in the  well-doing of all four of them the  district made a bit of wartime history that most of us felt the better  for lending a hand with.  Now comes the 1918 Victory  Loan���������moat likely tho last and best  investment Canadians will have  offered them. Canada reeds the  money to finish up thc war with,  and to "carry on" during demobilization and the consequent aftor-  wur economic readjustment.

"A Fisherman's Fight," is thc -title
officially given to a brilliant little
action of which particulars arc now
available, hi which six armed trawlers, returning to a British port with
their cargoes of fish, encountered,
fought and drove off a large German
submarine cruiser. Only fishermen,

rme suddenly appcarea, some seven
thousand yards away on the. beam
of thc. leading trawler, and commenced  to fire.    She  was  a  big  craft
with a couple of large guns of about
six-inch calibre and one, if not two
smaller ones���a very formidable enemy for trawlers with their low
speed and light armament. She showed two small masts and so large a
conning tower, that the men on the
trawlers were for a while doubtful
if  she was  a  submarine  at all.
Thc R.N.V.R. officer immediately
summoned his little flotilla to form
line ahead and follow him; and the
ships swung into formation with the
precision of warships. Thc submarine
ranged in. and thc action opened. All
three of the German's guns were
bearing on the. leading trawler and
her shells were failing all around, enveloping her in water spouts, but
never actually-hitting her. The next
astern, however, was less fortunate;
several shells hit her and she was
severely swept by the shrapnel of
which the German fired not less than
a hundred rounds, and one of her
hands was killed and four were
wounded. Among these was the gunner, but the remaining hands, though
most were "injured, kept the gun go-
in ef.
The submarine was trying to work
v.p ahead of the line: the trawlers,
superbly handled and never losing
their formation, altered course to
keep her on the beam and continued
to fire. A shift of wind allowed
them to use their smoke boxes and
make a temporary screen between
themselves and the enemy. The
commander's report speaks of thc
imperturbable courage and never-
failing skill of the men who handled
the trawlers during the whole, of this
time. They were dealing with an
enemy normauy capauie o�� steaming
rings round them and heavily enough
armed to blow them out of the water; thcy kept their fire going-till they
were threatened with lack of amrau*
��� nition, and when thc leading trawler
found herself with only fifteen
.-���-...nd.. left, she made ready, tiie A<r-
:::d:  "Prepare   to  rain."
But it  did* not   come  to  that.    The
-ubinarim.   was     closing     to     shorter
1   thc  second  trawler  in   lhc
message., was sent to them for assistance. These complied, but the
German machine guns were too well
protected to be knocked out'by the
fire from the tanks. Acordingly thc
tank commanders conferred at the
far end of thc village and decided, in
a hurried impromptu war council,  to
new movement firmly in the
allies' grasp. Ceri-th-ly we may well
pause in our natural enjoyment of
the adulation which our brave Americans have received to contemplate'
the -work which the British armies
l.a..vc done, and must stiii do, on tiie |
western front. Lloyd George -trad;:. |
no boasts in reviewing the operations of thc past in his .speech in
the commons recently, but he told
the plain truth about a military effort unparalleled in history. Britain':,
'contemptible' expeditionary force of
160,000 men ; in ��� 1914 has been converted into, an army, all told, of A-
250,000. Can we Americans out 15,-
000,000 men into the field? ".Such _i
figure looks preposterous. It .se.en.s
to us that the earth would hardly
hold tip such a force of armed men
as that. But to match Great Britain's exhibition of man-power we
should have to raise just that number.
"And while, she was raising her
great force, Britain was fighting desperately and every minute with ihe
men she had, and holding back a
great army which years, before, and
with   careful  preparation,     had     been j.

much more acute than in Great Britain. "Fbr-the last six months 1 was

Exportation Prohibited Except  Under Special License
Export of Canadian silver coin,
silver bullion, and fine silver bars is
prohibited, except under licenses issued by the minister of finance. The
regulations are to provide that licenses shall be issued only where the
silver is to be used for civil or military purposes of importance in connection with the war and only in
cases where thc exporter certifies
that it has been purchased at a price
which docs not directly or indirectly
exceed $1.01 x/2 per ounce, 1,000 fine,
at the point where thc silver is refined or at the point of importation
in  thc case  of imported silver.
The order in council states that
serious difficulties have arisen in
connection with 'the. purchase, cf silver which is urgently needed for silver coinage by the allied governments and recites the steps taken by
the United States and British governments.
The situation is not as acute as it
was. Thc Americans are now sending in  large, supplies  of  food.
For coal Switzerland is cntirely
dependent on thc surrounding countries. Throughout the war Germany
has taken advantage of tliis and has
exacted food in exchange for coal.
Coal is now selling at $40 a ton, and
at  that price is very  hard   to  secure.

in place of tonnage sunk. . This announcement is made in an official
statement issued after' a meeting of
the cabinet at San Sebastian.
The cabinet statement* which is
transmitted from Madrid by jthe Ka-

"In the course of the recent meetings held at Madrid the government
considered the international situation.'
As a consequence of the submarine
campaign more than 20 per cent', of
our merchant marine has been sunk,
more than 100 sailors have perishetf,
a considerable number of sailors have
been wounded - and numbers have
been shipwrecked and abandoned.
Ships needed exclusively for Spanish
use have been torpedoed without"-the
slightest pretext, serious difficulties
resulting to navigation.
"The government has believed it is
unable, without failing in its essential obligations and without setting
aside neutrality, to defer thc adoption of mcastires necessary to guarantee Spanish maritime traffic and
to protect Spanish crews and passen-

decided to address the imperial German government and declare that,
owing to reduction of -tonnage ��� to its
extreme limit, it will be obliged, in
case of new sinkings, to substitute
therefore German vessels interned in
Spanish ports. This measure does nqt
imply the confiscation of the " ships
under definite title. It would be only
a. temporary solution until the .establishment of peace when Spanish
claims also Avill b'c liquidated.
''Our ^ambassador to Berlin has received instructions to bring this decision to the notice of the German

"Please pass the ostrich."
This request may be heard soon in
Ijlic public eating places and the dining rooms . of thc private homes of
Washington. Stranger things than thc
serving of nice roast ostrich, with
plenty of gravy and dressing, has happened during these war times.
The future popularity of this bird
as an American dish depends to a
large extent upon the success1 to be
met in Arizona, where they are being^ introduced  as  a  food  now.
The  federal food administrator  for
Arizona  has  granted  permission      to
the owner of one of the  largest    ostrich farms in America, situated near
Phoenix,, lo slaughter 800 of his birds,
'j*-.   i This   ostrich   raiser   reports   that   the
..'._"   birds  are in  excellent  condition,   and
11M"   when killed, will be dressed and placed   on   the   market   at   an   extremely
low price���probably 15 cents a pound.
The 800 birds will make about: 25,000
pounds' of dressed  meal.
Tlie war is responsible in two ways
for this action on the part of the
ostrich raiser. In the first place, the
latter would never think of slaughtering thl.se valuable, if not overtender,
birds, but for thc fact that thc war

Its internal decorations are magnificent and very  costly, This church is the nation's  thank offering for ihe deliverance of  Moscow from the French. It took  fiftv vears to build, and its cost has  been  estimated at $160,000,000.  In thc Cathedral of the Assumption, situated inside the Kremlin, is  the most sacred picture of Russia,  the Virgin of Vladimir, said to be J  painted by St. Luke. The jewels  which adorn it^ are^ valued at $1,250,-  000, one emerald alon-i being said to  be worth $250,000.

"Andy," as  he  was familiarly known was 39 years of  age.    He had   been  ill  only ten days,  and up till   Fridav the  case was  not  considered serious, but from that time  on pneumonia developed rapidly, and  in .spite of careful nursing'and medical  attention he passed away.    Deceased  was born  in  Ireland, and had been a  resident of   the  Valley for   a dozen  years,   employing himself   in several  capacities Until  abo tit tight years ago  when  he went on  his  ranch east of  town.     For four years he was provincial fire  warden  in the Valley, while  for the last two years he had a similar  post in the C.P.R. forestry department  in East Kootenay.    He was  active in  political circles, being for years on the  Conservative   association    executive.  Equal!v pvoiiiiiierit was u. in xi'aternal  societies, being a past master of both  the    Creston   Masonic    and   Orange  Lolriges.    In the social life of the community he took  a prominent part, no  public  gathering of   the   sort   being  quite complete  without him.      Nine  years  ago  he  married   Margaret, the  youngest danghtev of Mrs, M. Young,  and  the widow and  six  children survive Iii in.     The funeral arras. ge_ner_fcs  were  with   Creston   Masonic   Lodge,  Messrs, Long, Benney,Rodgers, Hayes  Compton and Speers being pallbearers  at  the funeral   which  took  place on  Tuesday afternoon   to  Creston cemetery  Rev. T. McCord officiating.    The  esteem  in   which  deceased   was  held  was evidenced in the large number out  to pay Lilt...- last respects.     On ������vHi*y  hand the truest sympathy goes out to  Mrs. Miller- and   the   children   in   the  heavy  burden   dpath   Invs   lad   upon  them at this time. ��������� "      ,  NEWS OF KOOTENatS  Nelson boasts a seyen-year-ohl Italian who bought a $50 Victory Bond���������  and paid spot cash for it, too.
