Browell ranch and, we understand,  Intends going extensivey into potato  growing this year, It is one of the  most likely places in that section and  the way the Vallev is looking up  should prove a gilt edge investment.  Pte. Billy Hall got a warm welcome  home from overseas on his arrival here  the latter part of the week. He joined  up with the third contingent to leave  the Valley in February, 1915, going  across the latter part of the same  year. He had about nine mouths continuous front line service before being  wounded in the knee in the fall of 1916  upon recovering from which he went  on duty again in the communication  section. Billy has put on considerable  flesh, but is looking as skookum as the  best of them, and to all outward appearance is not inconvenienced by his  injury.  @mori-su Ksin���������  Canvass Ready  Soldiers' Memorial Committee of  five members organized for the campaign at a meeting on Friday afternoon last when R. B. Staples was  made chairman, apd C. G. Bennett,  secretary. An official statement covering the undertaking appears elsewhere  in this issue, and quite clearly sets  forth the case.      ,  The Valley has. been divided into  eight districts, and canvassers for each  of these were chosen as follows:  accepting the appointment of min-'  ing recorder, government agent,  etc., at what was then known as  the "49th paraiieii where ths Kootenay River enters Canada." The  trip to their permanent home was  by train to Sand point, Idaho,  thence by team to Bonners Ferry,  where an open boat, with its complement of oarsmen, took them to  their location.

Butts, returned to herhomeat Gateway, Mont,  on Sunday.  Mr. Leach of Canyon City held service here between trains   on   Sunday.  E. W. Butts was a Spokane visitor  the fore part of the week.  Mrs. W. C. Forrester arrived from  Nelson on Tuesday, and will make  Kitchener her future home. Mr. Forrester is in charge of the G. A. Hunt  store.  Bill Belanger, John Andrew and  Ted Mawson of Creston were Kitchener callers between trains on Sunday  Dr. Her.der.'*.un of Creston paid this  place a professional visit on   Monday.  Death robbed this community of  its first and foremost woman pioneer on Sunday morning last when  Mrs. John Charles Rykert passed  away at her home at Rykerts (opposite Porthiil, Idaho) at the age  of sixty-eight years. Deceased enjoyed the distinction of being the  first white wo. **^,n to take up her  residence in the Kootenay Vaiiey,  arriving at Rykerts with her husband almost thirty five years ago  when Mr. Rykert accepted the position which he has held continuously ever since. Deceased, who was  Miss Ella Wells, was married at  Niagara Falls, Ont., ������someS forty  years ago, and very shortly after  set out for Victoria, where Mr. Rykert had the assurance of a different position, but had no  hesitation  more especially Oi uu������ zns/iiy services  unostentatiously   rendered   whites  and Indians alike,  appreciation   of  which   can   not   be   expressed   in  words, but which was fittingly  evidenced in the large turnout at the  short and simple burial  service   at  the home  on   Tuesday   afternoon,  which was conducted by Rev. J. S.  Mahood, rector of  Christ   Church,  Creston, interment bei*r?.gr in a   plot  on the home   grounds.    The   pali-  berares were Joseph Anderson,   H.  A. French, Z. Montgomery,   Samuel   Smith,   J. W. Dow and Phil.  Thompson.    Old-timers   and newcomers alike will extend very  genuine sympathy to Mr.   Rykert   in  the loss of a life partner whose loyalty and  devotion   never   faltered  during the   isolated  days   of   the  eighties   and   early   nineties,   and  whose attachment and companionship was thus more enduring in the  latter years.  Mi^&.,SM������mf^  Jirn Churchill a-irived from Vancouver the latter part of the week,  and is spending a few days with his  ���������"���������arents at Meadowview Ranch���������or his  usual spring visit.  Mrs. McMurtrie, who has spent the  past month with friends at Vancouver  and Victoria, returned home on Saturday.  Mrs. Andy Miller spent a few days  last week wtth friends at Bonners  Ferry.  Charlie Sutcliffie is a visitor at Calgary, Alta., this week, for the spring  provincial cattle show in that city.  Considerable clearing operations are  under way in this section. Jack Smith  had a couple   of   teams   at   work   on  ErSckB-in  Kriekson school report for March  .shows an enrollment of 2"i pupils, und  an average attendance* of 21.0-1.

After reconsideration he has decided not  lo mow. to Albert.*, fearing the climate would be too severe for himself  ai.il Mrs. Hamilton.  Official Statement re Memorial Fund  The outstanding features of the first  Soldiers Memorial Fund mectin?*; were  that the majority of those present, had  giyen the question sufficient study to  reach individual conclusions as to the  form which a memorial should take  and that the committee who have the  work in hand are going to have un impossible task on their   hands   if   they  hope to see a   memorial   erected    that  would meet the wishes of every indiv-1 t.han a marble shaft. They  idual in the valley whom it is honed j making prominent in the  will donate towards tho fund.  ti  debt they owe moral   welfare   of   the  community.  Those who favor the erection of a  building to ho used for some cause  that will have as its object the betterment of conditions under which the  young people of the Valley are living  see no reason why such a building dedicated to the memory of the soldiers  would not be a more fitting  memorial  advocate  construc-  T"*MlTi.rlO������.r    .irW.r.lr- ! ������W  ���������    'ir" J   ' i n  tion of the building some feature that,  various ideas ��������� wj*j iH. distinctly memorial and claim  as to the form of memorial which j that .such a moinoriul when incorpor-  shall be erected have divided the cit-; atod with the utility feature! of the  i/ens into two parties: Those who fax*-   nr-onnsed hiiildinn* will attract  irreater  Subscriptions will be solicited on forms  that will provide for each subscriber  voting for the form of memorial wanted. Those who are determined that  their donations shall be used only for  the purpose they favor should use the  form which will appear first on the  Hiih.rcription sheet which states definitely what the amount subscribed  shall be n-cd for. Tf anyone feels that  thev would adjust the amount of their  givingaccording as a monument or  buildiiik is erected thev may sr state  on tliis form, marking down definitely  that thev will give so many dollars  towards the election of   a   monument  Creston branch of the G.W.V.A.  was able to show to Provincial organizer Comrade J* DrinnatJ quite a considerable muster at the meeting held  on Thursday night last. He is travelling through tbe country with eyes  and ears wide open, and will be able  to report, upon his return to the coast,  upon lands, farming conditions, markets, labor, and many other items of  vital interest to the soldier about to  doff khaki to resume the duties of a  bonis citizen again.  All present were much interested  in Comrade Drinnans report of the activity of the G.W.V.A. at the coast,  and listened to his lengthy address  with earnest attention, only regretting that time would not permit of a  still longer discussion.  The books of the Branch are in perfect order, and the general working of  the Branch is according to constitution and correct, which relieved our  yisiting Comrade of any work to do in  that respect, and earned for our  branch officials a note of appreciation ���������  The G.W.V.A., according to Mr.  Drinnan, is taking a very decided view  of Bolshevism, and of those who favor  the tearing up of our social foundations, be they operating under the  guise of organized labor or not, we  will have none of them, and while a  revolution of the vital affairs of the  country is necessary, and will be welcomed, yet that revolution must be  carried out gradually, and by the best  and most conscientious brains available.  The returned men, organized, are  prepared to meet organized labor and  collaborate with them, but only for  thegood of humanity; not for the con-  yerting of our glorious Canada into a  state ruled by Lenine, nor Karl Marx;  a state of disorder where no man's  home is his own* The alien qusstitn  was touched upon, and the need for  much new legislation to settle the  questions that affect Canada today,  and particularly British Columbia.  Attention was called to the fact that  we are not, nor do we intend to become a politiaal organization, yet we  have a party in the legislature, born of  necessity, and these will be reinforced  by a public sentiment tired of the  moribund tactics and ideas of what  are known as Liberalism and Conservatism, presently dead, and in its stead  a party which is not a party; an intel.  ligence collected and working in unity  for the best interests of neither creed,  .seel, organization, or individual, but  for all.  Comrade Drinnan was much impressed at what he saw here and will  turn in glowing report of thc occ.iss-  ionally heard of, but presently famous  Creston Vallev.    At   the  close oi"   his  address Comrade Drinnan was accorded a hearty vote of thanks, and an invitation to come again to Creston  whenever possible.

Dr.  C. F. H aye's, *fiditor and Owner'  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY,- APR. 11  M Freaw;  : The committee handling the  rustle for funds for the proposed  soldiers' memorial deserve commendation for the plan they have devised for the enrollment of guarantors to this good cause.  In the past the idea has always  been to pass around a list that enabled   givers    to    see   just   what  tation is to give as befits the occasion and your financial abiiity, and  allow the memorial to take the  form expressed by a majority vote  of those subscribing.  Preference is pretty evenly divided between a monument and _a  building. While you may be strongly in favor of either of these, when  you promise to give don't stipulate  that your donation must be used  for a building, or vice versa, aud for  that purpose only. Let the wish of  the majority prevail. This is the  attitude the veterans are takiug,  and  if  they can  so  entertain the  King, minister of works, to author  ize a survey of the transprovincial  highway  by a  route   through St.  Mary's   prairie and no man's land  via  nowhere   to   Kootenay   Lake,  and never even a kindly suggestion  of  regret   at   the Creston  Valley  being sidetracked.  However, if the  Cranbrook   business   men   are   in  earnest about getting the Creston  trade we do hope they won't overlook The Review as an advertising medium.    Review advertising  gets results.  others, previously approached, had  pledged  themselves to  contribute. | Proposition   it should   not be hard  This    scheme,   while   undoubtedly  public enough, worked an injustice  in two ways.  Sometimes a person was thus led  t<*   give   more   than   he  intended,  simply because a neighbor or friend  had   guaranteed   a stated   amount  and he felt he would be considered  a piker if he did not come through  equally generously.    And, contrariwise,   it   as  often   happened   that  folks gave less than they originally  intended   due to the faet that the  aforesaid   friend   or   neighber   had  guaranteed a lesser amount.  For   the  memorial   fund   people  ,   will be handed a slip of paper and  they will  fill  in the amounl they  feel they can and ought to give in  the blank space opposite the form  IBS  preier.  There  of memorial they  wiii be no knowing what anybody  else gave and revising donations up  or down according to somebody  else's penury or prodigality.  As a man thinketh in his heart  so will he give under this system���������  and that is exactly what the sol  diers want. We certainly all appreciate the effort the boys made;  our response on this occasion will,  in its way, indicate how much.  for the civilians to be equally dem  ocratic.  While The. Review has a strong  leaning in one direction on this  proposition, beyond an official pronouncement that appears elsewhere  in this issue no space will be available to set forth the merits and defects in either form of memorial  suggested. Our vote and influence  is for having the memorial committee act on the sentiment expressed by the major port.on of the  contributors.  In common with many others we  are hopeful that the sum guaranteed will be abundantly ample to  give the Valley both the monument  and building. To our mind this is  as ib should be. The granite pillar  as a -mark of respect to those who  await the sound of the last trump  in battlefield sepulchres in France  and Flanders : and the building for  those who have come back, as well  as for the rest, of us, for such uses  as funds as a wideawake board of  management may permit.  For the benefit of those who may  not have observed it we call atten-  The list below is the complete lot of  books at present in the Creston Women's Institute library.

While a sum of ������5000 i.s asked, it  is to be hoped none will sit down  and by mathematical calculation  figure out what, his or her pro rata  share would be on such an assessment, and then proceed to give  accordingly.

GARLAND FOSTER  Por a general stock and dairy farming undertaking no better locality  could be found than the much discussed Kootenay* Flats. "Up to the present in spite of* flood conditions a rich  harvest of hay has been reaped each  year, and herds of cattle running into  hundreds have been raised by- ranchers in this neighborhood. These have  heen principally beef cattle, dairy undertakings not being very  numerous.  It is a curious fact that very little  butter is produced in tht interior of  British Columbia, that essential being  l.i.^nrattr oiiirkrilicsri    Ytxr      'A THrO***"**. ���������  rl*4"-������������i<ic  ..XXf^x...      ^.Xfrf-..^  ~j - . .  . .  Many farmers indeed db'not even make  enough for their own needs. If it is  possible to reclaim this great area,  butter and cheese making should pro  vide a yery profitable industry for a  large number of farmers. This would  of course necessitate the production of  a great variety of fodder, hut as tbe  charactar of the soil would indicate  that so great is its fertility that fodder  crops would be readily grown. All  root and vegetable crops, such as carrots, beets, turnips, potatoes and fodder coin have already been tried out  at various points and the results  have  far exceeded expectations. Bnsiiage  corn especially grows to great height  and richness, It wouid be interesting?  to try some experiments in raising  sweet or table corn, as, if it matured  satisfactorily, it might be possible to  establish a canning industry, as a  secondary industrial undertaking.  Grains also do well in this locality,  though propably the absence of alkali  would prevent higher grades of wheat  being successfully grown. Oats should  do well and in the sheltered portions,  perhaps buckwheat. Clover grows to  great luxuriance and thereby is pro-  ided a series for crop rotation. The  white, red, and. yellow elovors are so  much commoner as fodder plants that  -li-   _-,?.- ���������  sweet closer aeeuss to i  in this province as a fodder plant,  though it has been used in Ontario for  this purpose for many years. Some  sweet clover seed having accidentally  been sown at Creston, a wonderfully  rich crop is produced in places each  year as a result.  As a sheep raising proposition, the  flats might not be so satisfactory, as  the pasturage might be too rich, for  sheep seem to do better when more or  less working for a living. This difficulty could, no doubt, be overcome by  carefully grading the pasturage. Previously the greatest difficulty in raising sheep in this country has been the  prevalence of the coyote, in spite of  bounties. This difficulty should be  largely overcome by having   sheep on  Tfifitnn Print iirntgff|rg lininn  'LIMITED  Distributors af all commodities formerly handled by the Farmers' Institute  ~\   ~~m-n-   *-���������������   *mv~m>m'm������������m    m     W% m~x-a 4f ~t%    ~   m*-rf3x1f--m ������V������������1  "m~*G-~-.      %*>a.

In this  country it is always considered better  business to give up sheep raising than  to pay a herder to look after them, even though herders were a necessity as  far back as the hills of Judea. How-  eyer, if sheep raising becomes an occupation of the flats, this necessity  will be reduced to a minium as most  of the range can be easily overlooked.  In advocating mixed farming and  stock raising one is not unmindful of  the necessity  for   fencing;   but   this  ty-*!���������<.��������������� ���������������������������������������*   on'r.uai    YmsTn   ���������"������������������*��������� 7; '?f*PS'3"T;,W     Ttji.y-'fl fiz~ ������T"S  with the land costing not more than  $55 per acre, with little or no clearing  to be done; a.nd with the natural hay  crop already available the addition of  wire fences should not be prohibitive  to the smallest farmer especially as  fencing will largely obviate the difficulties of herding.  Sheep raising would certainly be an  advantage to this district as it would  at once provide an additional industry  in the manufacture of woollen yarns,  and cloth; again utilizing some of the  waste water power of the district.  Other agricultural ventures as a  side line to mixed farming or as  special agricultural features should recommend themselves. The raising of  hogs is always a profitable undertaking where suitable food including corn  for fattening is cheaply procurable.  The same applies to the raising of  poultry in a district where grains do  well. With all the poultry raised in  this country it is extraordinary how  many people seem to forget it is  cheaper to raise feed than to buy.  From time to time other suitable  undertakings will probably suggest  themselves to enterprising farmers  desirous of branching out. The growing of vegetable seeds might be recommended on rich lands, For years wild  rice has grown on these flats, either  scattered by nature or by enthusiastic  sportsmen who en-joy the goose and  duck hunting in the fail. Flood areas  are of course almost necessary to successful rice cultivation and it would  be interesting to learn by experiment  now that China is threatehed with a  rice famine, if the season is long enough for the growth of the Oriental  variety. Certainly millet should be a  safe experiment.  If not rice why not reeds and willows for basketry, fringing the damp  portions and drainage streams? In  Europe willows are planted along  streams and regularly cropped of the  osiers for basketry. Such spare time  industi'ies as basketry are taught disabled men in vocational schools and  provision might well be made for a  permanent industry of this kind. In  this connection may be mentioned an  old time farm industiy that has practically disappeared in Canada viz the  making of some hats from oat straw���������  the so called "cow's breakfast" which  every eastern farmer once considered  superior for working hours to the  finest pnnama.

The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persons joining and serving  with His Majesty's Forces. The time  within which the heirs or devisees of a  deceased pre-emptor may apply for  title under this Act is extended from  one vear from the death of such person,  as formerly, until one year after the  conclusion of the present war.

Two or more persons  holding  such  Agreements    may    group  their  interests and apply for a proportionate  allotment jointly.    If it  is not  considered advisable to divide the land  covered by an application for a proportionate allotment, an allotment of land  of  equal  value  selected  from  available  Crown   lands   in    the    locality  may  be  made.    These allotments are conditional  upon  payment of    all taxes    due    the  Crown   or   to    any    municipality.    The  rights    of    persons   to  whom  the purchaser  from   the Crown  has agreed  to  sell are also protected.    The decision of  the Minister of Lands in respect to the  adjustment of a proportionate allotment  is final.    The time for malting application   for these  allotments  is limited  to  the 1st day of "May, 1919.    Any application  made  after  this  date  will  not  be  considered.

The English Church service here on  Sunday night was well attended. Sirdar prefers to do its worshipping on  the Sabbath seemingly as the crowd  was larger than   week-night   services.

Worse still he states that  at one movie house lie was in where  some war views of Canadian troops  were shown and his friend Ed. 1 J.ill of  Cr:inbrook. stood up and cheered for  the Canucks, ho was howled down  and threatened with ejection for interfering undiilv with the performance.  trict, as up to the present season nobody had questioned our right to that  territory.  Owing to a misunderstanding on  the part of the "factory, it appears  that the Nelson dealer was under the  impression that he aiso covered the  Creston District, and on the strength  of this gave to Embree & Foreman  a subdealers contract to work that  territory,  The Baalim Motor Co. took the matter up with the factory, and it has  been finally decided that our contract  stands.  We visited Creston the first of the  week, and talked the matter over  with all parties concerned, and it has  been mutually agreed that for the  present season the sub agency for  Chevrolet cars will be in the hands of  Embree & Foreman.  8 Trusting you will find space in your  valuable paper for the above, we are,  Yours very truly,  THE KOOTENAY GARAGE  per E.
