In Formation of Service
Reports Indicate Grain   Is   of-Very
Quality
In.the opinion of competent authorities there will be more wheat of the
No. 1--Northern-grade, in Western
Canada this year than ever before.
Samples; of grain which are now being received at the Winnipeg Grain
Exchange equal, if they no dot surpass, samples sent in during the
same period in previous years,--while
reports fr*om all over the country indicate that the grain is of a very
high quality.. Most of the cars of
wheat arriving at terminals are grading No. 1.
Exports"give as the reason for the
excellent grading the exceptionally
good weather conditions during the
weeks the' grain was ripening, and to
the fact that there have been no
heavy rains since cutting began.
Several flax samples of high grade
have also been received at the Winnipeg Grain Exchange during the last
few days. Most of thc __ax._grown in
Manitoba this year was for the British government from seed imported
from Siberia.

OLD ENGLAND'S ARMY AS SOLID AS MONT BLANC
American Writer Boasts for Great BHtaiir��� Says She KhowsNo
End to a Struggle Save Victory or Death and Has a Bad
Record for an Ambitious Despot to Face
Hon. C. C. Ballantync, minister of
naval services for Canada., authorizes
the following statement on the royal
Canadian naval air service, the organization of which Avas decided upon some weeks ago:
The establishment of an air service in Canada, intended primarily
for thc defence of thc Canadian
���coasts during the war, has been under consideration for some time, but
various difficulties, chiefly concerned
with the supply of the necessary material, have prevented this being
formed before. Early in 1918, however, thc government considered that
the . formation of an air service ior
coastal defence was of vital and immediate importance    to Canada, and,
escort convoys and perform other efficient services. This has been accomplished with lhc splendid aid and
assistance of our ally, the United
States.
Subsequent to former press notice,
a great number of applications for
cadctship have been received for a
comparatively small number of vacancies at the moment. Owing to
this small number of vacancies, it is
felt that a large number of rejections will cause considerable disappointment, and although the^ application list is now closed, it is hoped
that further expansion of the service
may permit of it    being    re-opened,-1 tion

Some Sent    Back   ih    England    for
Training
A blinded man to care for the blind
is the policy of the department of
soldiers' civil re-establishment, as
indicated in an announcement at Ottawa by Sir James Lougheed that
Captain E. A. Baker, whose sight
was destroyed by a German bullet in
France three years ago, has been appointed  to   the    department's    voca-
Wc must not let our delight in the
astonishing achievements of our boys,
bearing themselves like veterans on
the bloodiest battleelds in history
and against the most intensively
trained troops ever sent into action,
blind us to the other 'big things' that
have been and are being done-in this
tremendous tournament of the nations. Even in our appraisement of
the great deeds of our allies, Ave have
naturally cVwelt chiefly upon the unexpected and the gloriously bizarre ���
the slaying of the Golia.ths by the
daring Davids. We have not stopped
to comment on the solidity of Mont
Blanc.
But it is after all on thc solidity
of the Mont Blancs that Ave build. Wc
all knew the stuff of which Old England'was made. What she has done
in this war���quietly, unboastingly as
is her Avont���has surprised no one
who knew English character, English
stamina and

the British are fatuous���-then they
created that early turn in the tide
which released theY^eries of allied of��.
fensives that finally sent the Germaaa
back to the Hindenburg line���and bc-=
yond. They rose to the rank of a
full military -partner of France���ana -
there is no higher rank.
For all this they paid. There ia
hardly a home in Great Britain which
does not have its unvisited grave in
France or Belgium ��� not a street on
which the permanently maimed do
not limp to unaccustomed tasks. And
the figures show that the percentage
of casualties from the Mother Cousw-
try exceeds the percentage from tn��
overseas dominions, thus disposing of

as it was felt that this service should I re^5Ycl,
be of a naval character and should
work in conjunction with the R.C.N.,
the matter Avas brought strongly before the notice of the British admiralty.
They were in complete agreement,
and sent out an airship officer, Flt.-
Commander Barron, ex-R. C. N., in
March, 1918, to inquire into the general possibilities. The United States
government lent the services of ^ an
experienced    civil    engineer,      Lieut.
while those candidates selected,    but
not yet required, will be put on the
f cadets
efforts are being made to give each
pfoA-ince the proportion of cadetships
that its population Avarrants in comparison Avith other provinces. Preparation has been made ' to train
flight cadets in _ the United States,
with the exception of a small number of airship cadets who will proceed to England for training.
The preliminary organization for
the provision of the necessary number of men is being completed, and

out more officers, including one for
general organization, assisted by a
small staff, together with two experienced seaplane officers for command
of the stations. These officers arrived in this country on Dominion Day
and haA-e, up to date, been settling
details of the preliminary organization, in conjunction with the director
of naAT.l services, Admiral Kingsmill.
Preliminary .arrangements are no.v
sufficiently advanced to Avarrant further details' of the policy and organization of the service being given to
the public. The title of the service
will be the Royal Canadian Na\-al Air
Service, Avith ranks of officers and
men on similar lines to those formerly used in the R.N.A.S.
The uniform for officers will be
dark blue serge, cut on military lines.
with na\-al-shaped cap and badges,
distinctive from thc R. C. N., but indicative of thc title of thc service.
The uniform for men Avill be similar
to that formerly in use by thc R. N.
A.S., and the discipline will be naval.
Rates of pay have not yet been completely settled, but Avill not be less
than those in lorce iu the R.A.F.
The thank-, of the Cnnadinu :_.o\"-

metal Avorkers, acetylene Avelders,
cabinetmakers, boat builders, photographers, and men Avith storekeeping
or general office experience, together
A\-ith a number of men for miscellaneous unskilled duties at a later
date.
The militia department haA*e expressed themselves as Avilling to rc--
lease those required. The age limits
Avill be betAAreen 23 and40, the training of skilled men carried out in the
U.S.A., and it is hoped that the importance of the AA-ork, together Avith
the generous schedule of pay-now being draAvn up Avill be sufficient to
attract men possessing good technical abilities and other necessary
qualifications  of a  high order.
It is to be noted that a small percentage of the best skilled men will,
after completion ot training and from
reports of ability and conduct shown
during training, be giA-en commissions as technical officers Avhile thc
necessary senior non-commissioned
ranks will be filled in thc same Avay.
Up skilled men will b.; required for
Avorking parties and paid on a lower
a_ staff to care for blind soldiers.
Captain Baker, prior to his enlistment, graduated from Queen's as an
electrical engineer. He had served
just thirty days in Flanders when
his vision Avas destroyed, but in that
brief period he had Avon the Military
Cross and the Croix de Guerre. ���> Hc
was trained at St. Dunstan's hospital
for blinded soldiers in London, England, and as a result has been able
to resume his old profession, being-
employed as "trouble manager" for
the Hydro-Electric Power Commission at Toronto.
Altogether, there ha\-e been about
eighty members of the Canadian
forces blinded since the beginning
of the Avar, and the Avar department
has decided that ?.!! blinded Canadians shall be trained at St.' Dunstan's. Captain Baker intends to at
once establish an arrangement for
the training of blinded Canadians
in this institution, before they return to Canada. Already a number
of blinded soldiers AA-ho have returned to, Canada have been sent
back to England for training.
"Made in China" Now!
A pencil factory with a daily output of one hundred gross has been
started in Shanghai, China. This
marks the establishment of a neAV
industry in the country. .The product compares favorably with that
formerly imported from Germany
and Austria, and may in time replace
all foreign makes.

Convicted
"I Avas aAvakened in my dugout by
a voice getting doAvn: 'Come up out
of there "you yelloAV sons of fishes 1'"
said a captured German officer. "I
kneAV it Avas the Canadians, and lay
still. When they folloAvcd it with a
Mills bomb, I  Avas  certain."
ous moments at Avhich the blundering
bully of Berlin lost the Avar and his
chance to conquer and enslave     the
Avorld; but those who take long views
of things and recognize the      primal
forces which have shaped the destiny
of nations since the disintegration of
the Roman empire Avill agree that the
doom of  Germany's  despotic    ambition was sealed on the day that Britain's councillors wheeled that nation
into line with the forces of freedom.
So they entered upon    the task of
bringing  doAvn���to paraphrase    Kipling���the  Beast  that Avalked like     a
Man.    They were under    obligations
to  send some "eighty thousand     soldiers to help the French.   The kaiser,
measuring their honor by his    own,
thought they Avoukrperfunctoriiy and
literally  redeem this pledge, and let
it go at that. Hence his remark about
their 'contemptible little army.'   The
fact is that Great Britain alone    has
sent on land and sea a total of six
and a quarter millions.    Her empire
h?.s added t .\-o and a quarter millions
more to this.    Over eight millions instead of eighty thousand���a hundred
in place of one.    That is the British
Avay.    When Ave  send fifteen  million
Ave will have done as well���but    not
till then.
England was no more a military
nation? than America "when the Avar
began. She learned to fight by fighting���and dying. We arc profiting today by her tragic experiences. Thousands of American lads Avill come
home to us alive and Avhole because
thousands of our blood-brothers from
thc British Isles have been killed and
mutilated���and_ have taught us how
to escape. Britain made her armies
while France and her own navy held
the cap, and then she poured them
into France and Flanders by the million to fight back thc eruption of Cave
Men that threatened to submerge civilization.
What, the English have done in this
Avar is too recent to need recapitulation. They gradually took ovcr greater and greater sections of the front.
They first fought defensive actions
Avith all the dogged courage for which
England's contributions outside the
western front have been worthyof a
great nation, even if they stood alone
Her naA'y has kept the "seas free for
the commerce "and the troop transports of the allied world. It has bottled up the German navy from the
first. Her ships have coaled, fed ana

SeA'en Seas. We are proud of on.
ovm SAyift shipment of troops in tha
firing line during the days of th.*
soul-shaking danger this last summer; but Avell over half of them went
in British bottoms conA'oyed by Brttn
ish Avarships.
Then where haA-e not the British
fought? The Suez was in danger. It
Avas the British that protected it.
There were German naval stations in
thc Pacific. The British mopped them
up. Russia asked help by way of the
Dardanelles. The British tried to give
it. Intervention was needed on the
Tigris. The British supplied it. The
British were at Saloniki. British ships
Avere in the Adriatic, ihe Biiiisa colonial troops freed Africa from the
Germans. British diplomacy steadied
the Moslem world when the Turkish
Sultan and his Sheik-ul-Isiam proclaimed a holy Avar. The British to--
day are moving south from Archangel
and arc at>-"Vladiv6stok.
Britain financed the allied nations
till avc came in to share the titanic
task. Her industries have clothed,
munitioned and supplied them in various vital Avays. The Germans say
that she has 'prolonged thc war.' By
that they mean that she has kept u_>

The skunk, for example, whose chief  means of protection is its odor; the  porcupine, defended by its "quills;  the snake, which- repels its enemies  by its venom; the-turtle, Avhich is  securely encased in its shell; the lion  and elephant, secure in their superior  strength���������-these all exhibit iittie if  sny icsr reaction.  ^Gn the other hand, the rabbit, the  bird, the deer, the horse, the antelope, the monkey, and man-���������these are  the animals which pre-eminently exhibit fear and an irrespressible desire to flee from danger.

During  their temporary absence Sir Frederick Bridge thought    he    would    see  what kind of a fanfare he could produce, and, borrowing    one    of     the  trumpets, set about malting such discordant sounds that the clerk of the  works came up and expostulated: "If  that row continues," he    said,    "ray  workmen  threaten  to go  on     strike,  and if they do the coronation    will  have lo be postponed."    Sir Frederick  hurriedly put down the trumpet, and  soothed the workmen by playing     a.  sfcleption on thc organ.

But an interested  mutton merchant some years ago put  a  premium  on  thc  skins,    and    the  writer  and a  mate  started  out    one  winter   morning   with   about   two   inches of frost on the ground and every  tree   powdered  with  hoar  frost,  for  the  wallaby   ground.

FRIDAY, JAN.   3  With the war over, and a dim  but distant future prospect of lower prices, comes the disconcerting  news���������to some���������that the shortened  skirt and fewer,clothes idea that  partly of necessity developed with  all and sundry of the .womenfolk  the last two years particularly, will  not be discarded.  At a meeting oi: the American  Health Association last month feeling was quite pronounced against  the ladies reverting bacK.to P-rer  war customs entirely in tWinatter  of 'wearables* one lady medico !in  attendance remarking ihat "women  are cleaner now because they have  to wear these thin: clothes."  We presume this conclusion was  arrived at on the theory that with  the leas opaque and abbreviated  garments the wearers thereof had  to exercise greater diligence to be  sure they had "washed up as far as  possible and down as far as possible."  I_et us be thankful tii&t the arm-  stice has Intervened or some of the  fair ses shortly would have been  called upon to pay some of the  same sort of attention to .the as yet  undefined "possible" portions of the  female form divine.

EDWARD FEBGTJSON,  Acting Assessor and Collector.  Those who take more than passing interest tn local affairs are now  speculating as to whether the passing of the late Rev. W. C. Bunt  will bring about, church co operations on a still bigger scale in Creston Valley.  For over a year now we have  had a foretaste of it in the agreement entered into late in 1917  whereby the Methodists were allotted Erickson and Canyon City,  and the Presbyterians took Wynndel and Sirdar, and so far as we  can team the arrangement has  been strictiy and advantageously  observed.  Can the arrangement be still further extended so that members of  these two denominations the Valley  over can be of one accord in one  place on Sundays and other occasions ?  If one may judge by the attendance of Methodists at the PiTRby-  terian houae of worship the last  couple of Sundays it might look as  if Rev. Mr. McCord way the right  man in the right place ior tlie eon-  -.nmmation of so desirable an  undertaking.  How about the individual members and adherents of the two congregations? With bo pronounced  a scarcity of clergy with both denomination-*, it will be too had if  ..very effort, in not made to effect a  get-together, which will -ih.o include  the Sunday (.chools. Secular separate Hchoolm are in dinfavor the  province over. Why footer t^e r������-  verhe idea in the religion", arena?  In the Okanagan fruit growers  are busy making guesses as to why  the .apples, are, apparently not  -standing up." In many parts this  fruit is ripening too fast, and all  variaties are almost a month ahead  of their proper season. One reason  given is that there was a sustained  dry hot spell in. the spring and this  has the effect of bringing on the  fruit too fast. Another sugges'iaoi.  is that the heavy August rains are  responsible. A third reason offered  is the heavy, frost:.the. last of May'.',  _-;' Bonner's Ferry Times: feritain  Day was not publicly observed in  Bonner's Ferry, but it was not for  lack of appreciation of the work of  the British army and navy in the  war. The influenza conditions and  the weather combined to make it  inadvisable to put on a celebration  at. that time. Just the same  Boundary county will be found  shoulder to shoulder with the  Creston district of B.C. whenever  real occasion arises or whenever  opportunity offers for efficient  team work.

French officers watching American  troops at work consider that baseball  has much to do with the facility with  which they become adepts at grenade throwing.

Sore corns, hard corns, soft corn.  or any kind of a corn can shortly be  lifted right out with the fingers if  you will apply on the corn a^ fevv  drops of freezone, says a Cincinnati  authority.  At little cost one can get a small  bottle of freezone at any drug store,  which will positively rid one's feet of  every corn or callus without pain or  soreness or the danger of infection.  This new drug is an ether compound and dries the moment it is applied and does not inflame or even  hritate the surrounding tissue. Ji'st  think! You can life off your corns  and calluses now without a bit of  pain or sorcnes. If your druggist  hasn't freezone he can easily get a  small bottle for you from his wholesale drug house.  ~" Belgium's Anxiety  The attitude of thc Germans in  many parts of Belgium is creating a  feeling almost of panic among the  civil population. The enemy is apparently making preparations against  thc hour of departure and no attempt, is being made to conceal his  evil designs. Already much property  is being ruined". The fear is widely  entertained that the enemy will take  a hideous revenge on the people who  have scorned them, during the long  years  of occupation.

Me!boufB������. and Toronto  Y (Continued.}  back   of    Kenyon's  At the back of Kenyon's acute  mind there had been materializing all  the time the idea that the murdered  woman down at Comlyn was the wife  of a frequenter of Gaspard's gambling  den, and that Tony hailed from those  part_T. He was under no illusion as  to thc true character of the sumptuous "hell" in Brown Street, Mayfair.  And Louis Gaspard's record was  among the neatly docketed documents in his safe. Jasper Morgan  had excited his curiosity from a psychological point of view, but so far  thc tenant of Comlyn Court was  nothing to him but a blatant, loud-  voiced parvenu.  He had not, of course, failed to  note the alibi which Mr. Morgan had  established by his supposed fracas  wilii Uic jjUCi-ls poiiCc. jLvcnyori was  at one with. Superintendent Samuel  Noakes of the Cornish constabulary  in that- worthy'., "h'axiom" ��������� thai  when a.marricd is "done in" you want  to find out just where her husband  was at the time and what hc was  doing. But. that useful theory had  been out out of action in this case  by the aforesaid alibi, and he had  eliminated MoYgan from his academic  consideration of. the murder. Of: the  local gossip reflecting oh Anthony  West he was ignorant. Though fully  reported in -the country papers, the  baronet's evidence at the inquest had  seemed so irrelevant to the great  London <lailies that they had given  no space to it.  Such  was   Clayton   Kenyon's   position with regard to the Comlyn tragedy while hc waited for his friend.  it  had,  of  course, occurred to    him  that   the  point   on  which  his   advice  was  to be sought might have    some  relation  to   that  affair, but  he     was  more   inclined   to   think   that      Tony  .wished to consult liim about some financial   problem   which     had     arisen  from his  run of luck at  Louis   Gaspard's  green   table.     Nor   had   it   escaped his shrewdness that a blend of  both these motives might bc responsible for 'Pony's desire  for guidance.  The expected knock on tlie door of  his .chambers  came  at  last,  and    his  clerk having already gone on his holiday he went to the outer "oak" and  anc-iv<n-*.'d   the   summons     in     person.  The  caller was  not  Anthony    West,  but    a dishevelled    little    clergyman  who looked as if he had slept in his  clothes.  "I wish to -see Mr. Kenyon, the  eminent counsel,*' said the visitor  nervously.  Kenyon sized up the distraught  cleric with a practised eye and liked  the looks of him. "1 can plead  guilty to part of the indictment, anyhow," he smiled, "1 am the man you  want, though if you require my services as an advocate, the silly etiquette, of our profession demands that  you should' approach mc Ihrough  your solicitor."  "God forbid tin I I should have  such a thing," was the fervent rejoinder. "My name is Laurence  Clegg, i am the curate at Comlyn���������  a village���������-���������"  "Come in, Mr, Clegg," Kenyon interrupted. "If you are from Comlyn  you   must, know   my  old  friend  Tony  Wesl?"  "I left Sir Anthony West hall" an  hour atro." replied the curate. "He  is, 1 rei-rel to suv, not. himself al all  ���������drunk or mad, or perhaps a little  of both. 1 gathered from his ravings  that you were, a friend ol" his aud  Ihat hc had an appointment with you  which he no longer eared lo keep, so  I ventured lo come niyseli instead.  Mr.   K'eiivon,   1   travelled     up      from  j Cornwall because Sir Anthony needs j .*���������  ! a  friend -down  there,   and  I���������well,   I  am not strong enough."  Kenyon got the little man into his  most comfortable chair and busied  himself with 'lighting a spirit lamp.  "I. am going to brew you some tea,"  he said. "I don't believe you have  had any breakfast."   ��������� -  "To tell you the truth, I haven't.  There seemed to be nothing but  whisky at Sir Anthony's rooms," Mr.  Clegg smiled wanly.  "As bad~as that, is it?" Kenyon  frowned. "Now," he went on when  his guest had drunk the tea and eaten some biscuits, "what is the trouble  down in the country? I have been  kept quite .in the dark, which, in itself is surprising, seeing that hither-  **-* "\X   7 ������   4~  4- m..   r~, ~ -  rx, ��������� t-.__-.-4 -. .. __.__.__,-,,__-_, f ������������������-.,-  tr\j    wC-at   u-cvci    udU   c\.-y    ���������pc-uiCts   (lOiil  me."  "There are several distinct troubles, but taking them in the order of  sequence there are people at Comiyn  who believe that Sir Anthony is guilty of a murder and robbery recently  committed there."  Kenj'on's nostrils dilated like those  of a war horse sniffing battle. "J  have a bowing acquaintance with  that murder already," he replied. "Put  me on closer terms with it, please,  Mr. Clegg, especially as to the ground  for suspicion against West."  Thc disjointed story which the curate proceeded to imfoid, based on the  local tittle-tattle so seduolously fomented by Mrs. Burbury, ��������� centered  round the allegation that Sir Anthony ha ". been seen in the grounds of  Comiyn Court on the day of the murder, and that he had also been recognized on the moorland path leading  to the farmhouse w*here he lived during his visits to the neighborhood.  The rumors had gathered strength  from his denial that he had been at  Comlyn that day, and from his obstinate refusal to account for his  movements. And lately an added impetus  had  been  given  to  the   gossip  vi. j age  by reports which reached  that the  young baronet, usually     so  hard up, was  spending money freely  in London.  "I suppose they are thinking of  Mrs. Morgan's missing jewels," Ciegg  half apologized for the ioose tongues of his flock.  "Probably," said Kenyon, his eyes  glinting- at the ingenuous remark. "It  sounds like silly flim-flam. "1 presume  that Sir Anthony has been aware of  the liberties being taken with his  name?"  "He must have been," the curate  replied. "His housekeeper at the  farm would have told him."  "Then," said Kenyon quickly, "it  was. not to inform him of what he  knew already that you journeyed up  from Cornwall, Mr. Clegg. I am curious about the other troubles that  brought you���������not perhaps so distinct  as you imagine.".

What coins there were  on hand, of course, were used. Thc  silver bullion was also mined into  United States coins with the dies  then there. The question then came  up of a distinctive coinage for the  Confederacy. . A die was made for  the reverse of the 50-ccnt piece,  showing a Confederate shield and  the. legend "Confederate States of  America." The obverse side of the  old United States half-dollar, showing a seated figure of Liberty surrounded by 13 stars, dated 1861, was  to   be used in  conjunction   with thc  new die.  Four pieces only were struck, probably to submit to the high officials  in Richmond. No more pieces were  ever struck, as the supply of bullion  had run out, and during thc life oi  the Confederacy no sufficient amount  of bullion was ever obtained to slriltc  any silver coins.
