J. jDow.and R Sinclair-Smith the meeting assumed a  business attitude, and launched into  being the Creston branch of the  Great War Veterans Association.  The latter read the aims and objects of the association, and outlined  the subjects which affect the local  branch most intimately, and the  meeting expressed itself in sym-  yathy with these subjects.  The election of officers then took  place, but owing to the unsettled  position of the members present,  and to afford the comrades yet to  return a voice in the management  of the branch, .the officers were  elected provisional^', as followf :  President���������W.

IThe affair was a sort of a night off  from the regular routine of scuut effort, organizrd by Scoutmaster Alex.  Smith with the able assistance of the  parents of the members of the troop,  aud the scouts themselves furnishing  most of the items of the programe,  which were interspersed by games of  various sorts.  On av quite long and varied programe there were tA\o scout features  the first being a First Aid demonsta-  tion by Bob Crawford and Arthur  Gobbett, and the latter also gave a  very creditable exhibition of semaphore signalling. Along the same  line an item that held the young and  old alike was a demonstration on use  of gas mask by Lieut. R. Sinclair  Smith, who used one- of the real  masks which he became quite proficient in the use of while serving overseas.  Other items on the program were  contributed by the Scouts' Glee Club,  piano solos' by Marguerite and Edith  Crawford, recitations bv Teddy Payne,  Annie Smith, Lionel Moore, and Will  Smith. A club swinging exercise by  Donald Spiers, a duet by Charlie  Holmes and Lionel Moore, and a song  by Master James Cherrington. For  good measure the scoutmaster contributed a violin solo, with piano accompaniment by Miss L. Cherrington.  A charge of 10 cents was made the  grownups for the refresments which  netted the scout funds about $9. The  bovs passed a v&Le of thanks to the  ladies for supplping the supper, and  W. H, Crawford got three cheers and  a tiger for giving the hall for the night  free of eharge.  The scout work, which was badly  hampered the latter part of the year  due to the flu. is now coming back in  good shape and the eighteen members  ;ire attending regular and paying  strict attention  to   work.

Constable, Speers, and Rodgers were re-appointed delegates to  the Associated Board's of Trade convention at Revelstoke on the 20th,  with Messrs.

S3 j by employing   boys    of the town wc  gj accomplish    two     purposes, namely,  5 i supplying the present needs and sup-  SS plying    trained    help for the  future.  City boys carefully selected and carefully trained will make very satisfactory farm hands.  Many industries that have no direct  bearing on production will, as the war  continues, be more and more curtailed, and men engaged in these industries will do well both by themselves and their country, to get into  some productive industry as soon as  possible.  The present wage of the farm hand  compares favorably with other occupations, and that will do much towards supplying ' the shortage of  farm help. This shortage has been  a most troublesome problem ever  since the war began and becomes increasingly serious. No one knew how  we would get through thc season of  1917, but American farmers harvested the biggest crop on record. In 1918  they have duplicated that performance. In 1919 they can again be  counted on to solve thc problem in  some manner.

The problem of fitting in the  different operations to avoid congestion at any time is thoroughly discussed in a circular issued from the  University of Illinois. A summary  of the circular is as follows:  The problem during the war is that  thc now already overworked farmer  imist produce more, with less and  poorer quality of help. Hence we  must seek the solution of the problem  from  the  following sources:  1. In the more even distribution of  labor throughout the growing season  by means of a good rotation of crops.  2. The equipping of every farm laborer, with enough horse power and  with the size and type of machinery  that will enable him to do the greatest possible amount of work.  3. The planning of all the farm  work so that every operation that /is  not definitely fixed as to time or season may be fitted in between the  busiest periods when every minute  may be of special importance in producing or saving a   crop.  4. The practice of letting live stock  harvest crops and feed themselves so  far as is practicable.  5.

For instance, wherever possible, winter wheat should be included in thc  rotation, because the seeding time is  in the fall when no other work is  urgent and thc harvest also comes  before the harvest of the spring  grain.  One-fifth to one-fourth of the acreage of a farm should consist of some  legume���������first, from the standpoint of  fertility, and, second, from the standpoint of labor.  The amount of labor that can be  performed by one man depends  largely on the number of horses and  size of machinery he can handle to  advantage. One man can often do  the work of two by driving one and  leading a team attached to another  machine. Farmers should not hesitate to buy large-type machinery because of high prices. The time saved by'the-use of large, machinery has  also ; doubled in value.' " Furthermore,  thc question of increasing food production should be given a preference  over  the question  of profit.  In order that a farmer may reap  thc best results from his labors, a  large part of the farm work must be  performed at definite periods. Therefore, such work as has no definite  time, such as repairing machinery,  fences, tools and hauling manure,  should not be allowed to interfere  with planting, caring and harvesting  of crops. All farmers practise this  arrangement of work to a certain extent, but none have reached thc stage  where no more improvement is possible.  The practice of letting live stock  harvest crops should he more extensively used. This applies particularly  to the growing of hogs on forage,  and finally putting on the finish in  thc corn field. It has been proved  'that a moro profitable gain for tho  feed eon.Mimcd cai. lie made this way  then by hand feeding methods. Tlie  practice of grazing cattle on legumes  should bc more common, both from  tlu: standpoint of labor and that of  rortoring   fertility.  In order to use labor to best advantage, work must be carefully  planned ahead. Tlie chief advantage  of a_ carefully made plan at the beginning of the. year, and a follow-up  system to keep tab on the work from  flay to day, is that it keeps before  tin: operator tlie things that need to  he dour. This will help him in deciding which needs to he done first  and in filling the various jobs together in such a way that the great-  aniouni oi work may lie done  whii   ihe.   time,  and   energy  available.  gold jobs, if ni glee I eil, become 11 x -  c.d work after a lime; ;md every such  :.u'ee]hin������'ous job thai has been neg-  l-'eied on v.liny days means practically  Teuton eagle.

The Memes*i-*i
The proposed memoriol for the
Crestou. Valley in honor of the
soldiers who served m the great
war i.s besiujsiiis? to sttra-Qt- soms
little discussion at least, and the
latest suggestion made The Review
is that it should take the form of a
quite commodious club house, fitted
up with a gymsiaBJum, reading
room, and other features of an institution designed to attract the
young men and boys.
Certainly something of this sort
is badly needed in Crestoii. At
present there is absolutely no place
at all f��w the younger generation to
gather at nights wherein to improve their spare time and talents,
or for recreation���and get together
they will be the circumstances favorable or otherwise in part.
However there is a feature to the
clubroom idea that must be taken
into consideration, arid that is the
upkeep and supervision of the
same. At the outset these factors
might not be bothersome, but unless human nature has changed
considerably we fear it would only
be a short time until the supervision and, upkeep cost and effort of
such an institution would become
a serious problem in a rather small
community like Creston.
And   what a  sorry spectacle it
facturers _ which   they   refused   to
consider and, from their standpoint,
were quite  consistent in declining of the experts
to  distribute  samples  of fruit for
advertising purposes.
Seeing that no ulterior motive
actuated the U.F.A. in declining
the fruit, and that the fairly satxs-
part of B.C.'���and a little better in
some instances, according to some
faotory trade relations that have
e^ted in the past will continue, it
would look as if the effort had lost

All's well that ends well. As
will be seen by a letter in another
column the United Farmers of
Alberta in convention at Edmonton
last month did not refuse the gift
of those ten hoses of apples from
the Creston Valley on account of

For 1919 he offers the prospect of
a million dollar market for apples
in Ontario, if the B.C. growers will
ship the right varieties and put the
stuff up right; that is so as to
stand comparison with the American    product Wenatchee   apples
having already become a big favorite in Toronto
On the question ox varieties,
however, Mr. Grant is rather bold
in confining them to.about eight
different kinds. His selection's are :
Delicious, Mcintosh Red, Jonathan.

A recent conference at Nelson to
discuss the completion of the trans-
provinciai highway westward from
Cranbrook la producing some newspaper controversy, to which Guy
Constable, president of the Creston
Board of Trade, contributed the
following article to the Calgary
Daily Herald:
I have read the letter of Mr. Simpson regarding the National Highway
route, which appeared in your issue of
the I4ih. and I note in Thursday's
edition his supplementary remarks.
They are such that contradiction is
necessary. He states that the continuation of the road from Creston to
Nelson is impossible for the the,, reason that the mountains go precipitously down into the deep Kootenay
lake, but yet he advocates building
106 miles of road along the shores of
this same lake from Lardo to Nelson.
I have skirted the shores of Kootenay
lake from end to end many times, and
to my mind there is just as heavy
rock work���just as much danger to
autos���(if danger there be)���on the
uncompleted section between Nelson
and .Lardo as there would be between
Nelson and Creston. There are no
great engineering difficulties by either
route, and I cannot conceive of anything finer for the tourist than skirting the shores of this beautiful lake on
a water grade road.
Many different routes through the
���Rockies are advocated for this Nation*
aljftighwoy, but the question surely is
whether this highway is to be a National Highway of commerce, a highway along which the farmer can take
the fatted calf, the tourist and average business man can travel through
the centres of population, a highway
so travelled that it will be kept opeu
all the mouths of the year and be of
maximum benefit to everyone, os a
scenic-road, rising to considerable elevations, following more or less along
the backbone of the Roekies, irrespective of what cities or populous districts
may ue suietraoKeu in so uoing, a
route only open during the summer
months of the year and of limited use
only to the province. A commercial
highway is what Canada or. at anv
rate) this province, requires first, and
if by any chance such a highway
should be routed through the Crow's
Nest Pass, the logical way for it to go
is by Cranbrook and Creston to Nelson along the shores of Kooteuav
lake. Oh the east-vyside <of the lake
from Kootenay Landing to Balfour,
there is considerable settlement and
fertile orchard lands more or less all
the way. At various points considerable road has already been built and
it only remains to connect them up
and bring tlie whole route up to the
standard of construction necessary for
national highway purposes. At Pilot Bay the road would connect by
���steam ferry with Balfour on the west
side of the lake, from which point a
road is already built into Nelson, some
20 odd miles.
So far as the route over the mountains to the west of the Kootenay river
from Creston to Trail is concerned,
government survevs show that such a
road would be entirely feasible, and
the elevation far from* being great, as
Mr. Simpson thinks, would be 4,000
feet. A far greater __ ere vat ion is obtained on the iiiari Wrey Pass route,
which from a scenic point of view is
unsurpassed. Both routes would have
little value as commercial highways
which must of necessity pass through
the centres of industry and population,
and it would be very deplorabla thing
should lurge sums of money be expended by either the Dominion or
provincial authorities on scenic automobile toads, while its population
generally lacked intercomunieation by
road for thc; ordinary purposes of life.

Germans Dug Out for Position Beneath  Concrete Pedestal  of
Cross
In a cemetery near Limey, just
within tlie German lines, previous -to
thc attack of September 10, American troops have discovered German
machine gun nests beneath the concrete pedestal of a large cross. -
Thc Germans had dug in along the j
centre  of  the     foundation     and  con-!
structed machine  gun    positions     at'
three    places     facing     toward     the
French lines.    The cemetery is on a
hill      commanding    a view     of     the
country    to  the south, and the  Germans    assumed    that    if    an    attack
were made the cemetery would    not
be subjected to artillery fire*;
When the Franco-American often- _
sive started the Germans held the
machine*" gun nests in the cemetery
as long as possible, but were compelled to retreat in haste before they
could use the guns. So hurried was
Ihe enemy retirement that several
machine guns were found in the cemetery by the allies. The cemetery
was not hit by shells and the cross
still stands.

A Very Sinister Person
Crown Prince More Dangerous Than

Thc  Crown    Prince    is    clever ���
amazingly so.      His face    does    not
show it.    Hc has been caricatured to
represent a rabbit.    There is no deriving  that  his   features   look     weak.
Fie  has     often     been    photographed
grinning in a silly way; but the grin
can bc  sinister  too.    For   Frederick
Willi elm is  one  of  the most  dangerous   and   sinister   men  in   the   world.
Because of Ids skill as an actor,  because of his ruthless ideas on  divine

his lack of religious fear���which fear

Today, more than ever before, is
woman opportunity. Many new occupations are now opened to her,
which, before the Avar, she was deemed unfitted to fill. And truth to tell
she has risen to thc opportunity, and
now shares many business responsibilities in former times confined to
men. But, as women are subject to
more frcquc. t fluctuations of health
than men, many will be handicapped
early, if they regard their health requirements too lightly.
The nervous strain, long hours and
prolonged mental or physical fatigue
thin the blood and weaken the nerves. Such conditions as women are
now called upon to undergo can only
be endured by a full-blooded constitution. This is as true for men as
for women, only weaker women suffer soonest. The woman worker, in
any line, requires her blood replenished frequently. She needs new, rich
blood  to  keep  h..   health  under  the

and to fortify her system against the
effects of overwork. This applies also to the woman in thc home, who,
perhaps, has more worries and anxieties than usual. So let all girls and
women take heed and renew their
blood promptly at the first approach
of pallor, lack of appetite, headache
or backache. This can be best and
most effectively accomplished by taking Dr. Williams'- Pink Pills which
make new, rich blood and thus help
womankind so perfectly. No woman
need fear failure of health if they
take these pills occasionally to keep
them well, or give them a fair trial
if thcy find themselves  run down.

Twenty-nine Years Old
Is Most Important Wireless Station
in Europe
Thc Eiffel Tower is just 29 ycars
old, having been erected for the
Paris Exhibition of 1889. Although
it was denounced as ugly, for the
same reason as a skeleton, because
it is unusual, its rigid lines are really
graceful. It has outlived its popularity as a pleasure resort, although it
offers a wonderful panorama of Paris
but it serves a far more important international service as perhaps the
most important wireless station in
Europe, for it is in direct communication with Canada, 2,500 miles off.
Its mass of 8,000 tons of iron is 984
feet high, or, if its lightning protection be added "list over 1,000 feet,
which is five times the height of the
monument on Fish Street Hill. In
England William Holland's enterprise iu imitation of it the Blackpool
Tower, still flourishes, but Sir Edward Watkins' scheme, the Wembley Tower, had the fate of the
Tower of Babel, and the uncompleted fragment, which was for
years a land mark on the C. G. R.,
has long since been swept away. ���

Is there no end to giving? There

best line that any advertiser in thc
United States ever wrote was the
line: "While some one gives his
life, what are you giving?/;^*hink a
minute.'' ""*"""
What are you giving, you who run*"'
loose and go about your virtually undisturbed affairs? What are you giving when you think a minute of thc
fellows who fight Germans and cooties, rats and trench fever, gas and
shrapnel, mud and filth, and endure
atrocious suffering or miserable discomfort?
What have you given or what can
you give? The demands upon your
money do come rapidly. It is the
way thcy have to come. It represents the pressure which must be
put upon. Even this pressure is
an indication of our own good fortune. You are here, being asked
for your money but not your life.
This is thc way in which the
loose coin of the nation is shaken

Armies That Melt Away
An Englishman who has just returned from Russia says that local
hatred of the Germans has become
intense throughout the whole of European Russia, but the organization
of an army is a task apparently beyond thc wit of man. When men

particular district or area they are
easily obtained. _ There is no doubting their determination or their courage; but if any attempt is made to enormously.���From
lead them elsewhere they simply melt | World,
away, returning to their farms and
resuming their ordinary daily routine.
Thc German undertaking to the

beyond the present well defined line
may not be. worth much; but it is
not making Russian army organization   easier.

"No cause to be squeamish, my
man." he said. "I am aware that my
friend was in trouble some years
ago. I gather that you have been up
against the law, too, and that you
were in the same convict prison as
Professor Zimbalist. That is the
honored name your old colleague
bears now. The point is���what are
you doing here, apparently -spying
upon your dear old pal, as you call
him?"
Thc stranger left off a husky sight
of protest. "S'cip me Bobs, guvnor,
1 hadn't a notion the professor���

within a thousand miles of me when
1 chose this shack last uight as a
handy crib to doss in. I'm on the
road from Truro to Exeter, where
I'm told there's work for the likes of
inc."
"What sort of work?" snapped
Morgan.
"1 ain't on oath, and I ain't bound
lo commit meself," Mr, Calvert leered.
Jasper Morgan regarded him critically. "Burglary'or highway robbery
1 should put it at," he said after a
pause. "You do not strike one as being on the higher planes of art. Well.

presence here, I am worrying over
another point. 1 am bound to protect my frincd the professor. Has
your chance discovery of him caused

The tramp looked down at his
broken boots, looked up again and
winked. "1 can't say but what the
sight of his dear old face raised 'opes,
mister," he replied. "I'm a rcglar

than good if you get blowing it down
at the pub in the village. It will be
best for everyone for you to lie low
till you're wanted. I am wondering
where you can stav in the meantime."
"What's the matter with this hut,
mister? I can doss anywhere.
'Twori't make any song if 1 go down
to the village after dark to la3' iu a
stock of grub. I ain't one, from the
natur of my trade, to seek the.cum-
pny feller crcaturs, except when I'm
at my palashul 'omc in Park Lane,
London." And Mr. Calvert winked
solemnly from under his
brow.
Morgan weighed    the    proposition.
"Yes," he replied, "you'll be all right
here,  I  think.     Hardly    anj-one    buf.
llit   professor   and   I   ever  come   near
the  place,   and   if  anyone   should   it'll
only be a schoolboy playing about on
j that heap  yonder.     If he  sees     you,
I you can gammon him with any yarn.
I Come   on,   Zim!     Your  dead  old   pal
j and  I  understand  each  other.      Let's
i get back to our base."
( '"Arf a mo'," their recruit stopped
them as they were going out. Can't
you give me a lead as to when you'll
want mc to get busy?" ���
"No, I can't,". Morgan replied. "It
depends on circumstances beyond our
control. The occasion may arise any
day. but in any case it won't be later
than  a month from now."
The tramp expressed his willingness to await orders, and bade his
new allies an affable "So long." But
when thcy had departed his lips closed with a snap under their hirsute
fringe.
"Now what the mischief is my job
lo be"" he muttered behind his
clenched teeth. "To strangle that
cunning fat bo*" from thc rectory as
like as not. I should rather enjoy
choking him a little on my own account/*
If Mr. Calvert had been able to
overhear the first words exchanged
between Taspcr Morgan and Professor Zimbalist after they had traversed a considcrablc^fjistance, hc would
not have learned much: though it is
possible, he would not have learned
much, though it is possible that he
might have stored it up for later advantage. The professor, it appeared,
desired sotmewhat similar enlightenment.
"A rcr.ccd unfortunate meeting,"
he remarked in a semi-tone of apology. "So anntying, too, that I cannot place the beggar. A good move
of yours to keep him sweet and under our eye, Jasper, but have you really got a job for him?"
"Mike Hever," Morgan growled in
response.

More Jfarticuiars About the Ancient
Gun Captured by the British
An interesting trophy from Mesopotamia is now to be seen on the
Horse Guards Parade. This is a
bronze Persian gun weighing about
five tons, which was captured by the
British forces on their entry into
Bagdad under Lieut.-Gen. Sir Stanley Maude, K.C.B.. C.M.G., D.S.O., on
the 11th of March, 1917. The king
graciously accepted this gun from Sir
"Stanley Maude and the British forces
in Mesopotamia, and desired that on
arrival in England it should bc plac- f
temporarily on the Horse Guards '
Parade that it might bc easily accessible and seen by all. The carriage
on which it is mounted is only a
makeshift and was not captured with
thc gun. Thc. inscription .on the gtm
is as follows:
Succour is from God and Victory  is
u at  hand.

01 the gun and cannot be seen owing
to thc height of thc gnu carriage. A

A Fresh Mystery

on   some   game   where   1   could  hc    a
'elp to him���that I could bide a whil
and
'tinted  from pillar to post:
"And  if we didn't  want  to  be  saddled with  you?" said   Morgan  quietly.
''Then   I   reckon���but     there!       I'm
not 'inc.  to  threaten,  mister."
Silence, ten re and pregnant with
infinite possibilities, reigned iu the.
dim interior of the hut. The tramu

that lurked amid his rags. The eye-,
of Jasper Morgan sought those oi
Professor Zimbalist and spoke in the
language that makes no sound, telling one another Ihat, threat or no
threat, Mr, Calvert would be a serious menace if he was not squared.
Hc had it in his power most effectually to upset certain aims by letting
loose the merest breath of scandal as
lo thc pa t of Morgan's guest, and it
was plain that thc mealy-mouthed
rascal meant to do so it treated as an
enemy. There was another alternative discussed in that: dumb show,
which would have converted thc hut

activities hc seized upon the hint with
alacrity. Needless to say, the rumors about Sir Anthony West and the
impecunious young baronet's refusal
to prove an alibi had been threshed
out to the limit by the police authoi-
ities. The case had even been submitted to the. big wigs at Whitehall
and Scotland Yard, and had been referred back with the curt inliniation
that as matters stood there was nothing to justify an arrest.
The gist of the official rebuff was
that if ihe local police suspected Sir
Anthony West it was up to them to
collect evidence which would prove
t-his guilt. Noakes, with his bucolic
mind saturated with the "h'axiom"
which he had had sorrowfully to
abandon in Jevon's pantry at Comlyn Court, on the first day of the inquest, had done his best in a halfhearted way,'with results nil. He
and his golf-playing chief had conic
to the conclusion that village gossip,
without a tangible, witness, offered no
sure foothold for thc likes of them.

'"The Persian verses constituting

we.c <.'.-iy solved by the help of a

values ot thc letters, gives the date
A. H. 1045 (A.D. 1635-6) uot A. II.

sometimes.
The old horse may kick over the
traces; the plow-point may slip out
of thc ground; something may scare
thc team, and away \\\vy go down
through thc meadow, tearing up lis..
turf and leaving a big scar onHhe face
of nature, and a deeper mark on" the
heart of thc man who is snaking
along behind. No man ever followed
the plough very long that he did not
come to know the meaning of hard
knocks.
Whether our furrow runs away
down across the prairie, or through
the door to some lactory with its
whirring wheels, or to a desk in some
soft-carpeted office, we shall sometimes have sore ribs and sorer hearts.
But it never will do to lie down in
the furrow and say, "It is all up with
mc! My ribs are broken. Somebody else will have .o finish this
job." The thing to do is to squeeze
the handles hard, pull back the
plow and sing out, "Get up!" to the
horses, and sav it in a tone that
makes them know you mean it. Thc
big stone will bc lifted out high and
dry, the balk will be made straight
and smooth and true, and things
will look more favorable for a good
harvest by and by.
Thc man iu thc furrow, wherever
that furrow may be, who keeps faithful aud earnest and true, and who
holds the handles of his plow light
and straight, will have something
good to show for his work when sundown  comes.
