 YoCM  CRESTON, B.C., FBIDAY, FEBRUARY, 14, 1919  mamm  BSS5  Union Re-Elects  1 ^^"EPS  The most- harmonious and all-round  ^satisfactory annual -meeting of Creston Fruit-Growers Union. Ltd., was  the 1919 gathering in the Auditorium  on Tuesday afternoon, which was in  charge of President Compton, and an  attendance of about 75 of the share-  ho!ders.  The president's address was verbal  and very brief. 1918 had been by long  odds the best year the Union had ever had, and even better things were in  prospect for this year, to provide for  which the directors were arranging  for a w-irehouse at Erickson to adequately handle the eyer-increasing  volume of business there. Some improvements in the way of increased  accomodation will also be provided  at Creston. Mr, Compton thanked  the growert for the increased support  , the Union had received and the utmost confidence that had been shown  in the office staff as well as the directors.     ,���������������������������������������������*���������'���������  Owing1 to Manager Staples having  been culled to "Vancouyer for a meeting of the B.C. Fruitgrowers Association special ct mmittee that is preparing to fighf the increased express  rates, ths manager's report was read  by J. W. Hamilton, and will appear  in full iii our next issue.  Mr. Hamilton had a earefully-p re-  pared statement on the year's financial statement, which had been duly  audited, saying, in part:  Lion wicn your .Balance nneet  ......|/^rv(..uu^u   ULJIO    JCttl'  Tnenrst item or interest in connects the  or tne fun-  tingency Loss Account. This account  was originally created to provide for  sundry accounts in your ledger which  were of ��������������� very doubtful character.  Some of these have been on yom  books since 1913. At the end of 1915  it was thought advisable to create an  account to provide for them. These  old accounts have again this year .been  carefuiiy revised and as there is apparently very little chance of your recovering anything further from them  they have been written off. The necessity, therefore* of your Contingency  Loss Account ceased to exist.  The mortgage loan of $1000 on your  real estate becomes due in April, and  as we have ample funds in hand there  will be no difficulty in meeting it  when due. The disappearance of this  loan will relieve you of quite an expense in interest which you have been  payingon . a non-revenue producing  esset. Reserve Fund of $1000 is a new  account created this year. I will refer to it again more in detail as to the  function of this account later on.  Accounts payable only stand at  $419,02. and since making np your accounts they have been paid. Turning  to the Assets side of your balance  sheet the yalue of your real estate has  been reduced by a sum of $110 from  tho figures it stood at in 1017 for depreciation. Tt is difficult, to arrive at,  a just valuation of this property, but,  until you commence to utilize it for  your business it, is as well to include it  in the policy which has now been inaugurated of allowing a portion of  your1 yearly earnings to be used for  depreciations.  We I)i������ve also treated your- warehouse in like maimer and have written off m sum of $200 to cover depreciation. At, tin* present, time you could  not, erect it similar building for the a-  tnoiint the present one cost you, bnt  il. as well Lo take time by the forelock  uo that when costs of huildi'-.g material and labor drop to normal again  your building will not show an inflated Vji.tiKi ill your balance, sheet.  Accounts receivable is Jfil2l.*:.0H.  This is very much larger than we  should liave liked to   have seen   out-  amount paid   in   1917.   To,   however,  handle your very large increase of business it was neccessary tp have almost  continuous extra  help   in   the   warehouse at Creston, besides extra casual  help when carload lots began to move.  We also had to cope quite a large volume of business  at  Brickson,   which  necessitated   an    outlay   in    salaries  largely in excess of previous yeai'S.   It  is interesting, however, to   note   that  for salaries and commissions   paid   in  1913 $3&34.    In   1914   $3702.    In   1915  $2993, in which   years   your   business  made quite substantial losses,   and   it  was not till   1916  that  salaries   paid  were in any way in proportion to your  reyenue.   The next   item   is   General  Expenses Account.    This   also   shows  an increase by $614,   but   taking   into  account   your   increased   business   it  does not show any great   advance;   in  fact we still have a long way to go till  we reach the  high water mark of 1915  when onr expenses reached the sum of  $2389, being about $1000 oyer   present  total.  Ou the credit side you have commissions earned of $12,092.63, and after deducting your expenses, and allowing  for bad doubtful debts and depreciation you carry to your No. 2 account  the respectable surplus of $5768.26.  Before referring to your Profit &  Loss Account No. 2 in detail it will, I  am sure, be of interest to trace how  the first item of S4349.2-1 on the debtit  side of that account is arriyed at.  Omitting the cents, and including in*  expenditure total amount written off  for bad and doubtful debts, etc.,  each year. In 1913 your total  expenditure was $5326, aud revenue  $4303, and the loss of capital shown in  your balance (which included items  from 1912) was $1039. In 1914 your expenditure was $6874. against a revenue of $4098, a further loss of $2776,  which added to previous year's loss of  $1039 brought your capital loss to  $3815. In 1915 your expenditure a-  mounted to $8801, against  revenue of  Duck Creek Has  I   -0.~~\mmY\dmm.���������   AL -���������- J  'L1V61V s^-tavs^SLfieaa  -���������pp.- --  cars leayes   very   few  "Valley for export.

Commercial war has been declared between' the two forces known  locally as the Allied and the Central  Power.  The Allied constitute the old,  solid members of the local co-operation headed by O. J. Wigen. The  Central Power constitutes the well-  known trinity headed by the only  residential German in the burg.  You can locate these two almighty armies on the map of West  Kuotenay by moving your finger  alongthe line of the Crow's Nest  Pass Sailway as it winds its way  along the east slope of the famous  Kootenay Valley till it gets to an  equally famous strawberry centre  marked Wynndel.  The Allied forces are understood  to have signed an ironclad ailiance  to fight the Central Power to a  finish if a truce or peace pact is not  signed The Allied forces are now  entrenched Ion both sides of this  branch of the C.P.R., within the  corporate limits of this strawberry  burg.

In 1917 your  expenditure was $4015, against a revenue earned of $4983. showing a further surplus of $966, thus reducing  your capital loss of $5316 to $4349  shown as balance from 1917 in your  present, profit and loss account. No. 2.  The surplus of revenue over expenditure for 1918 is $5768.26. This sum,  therefore, entirely wipes out your capital loss and leayes you with a surplus  of $1419.02.  It has been fully remarked that now  that the Union has done as well they  will pay a dividend, and by so doing  establish confidence. Gentlemen, there  are only two parties that require to  have confidence in the Union. The  first is, undoubtedly, ��������� yourselves; for  unless we have produce for sale our  Union is a failure. What confidence  do you require and must have? That  the Union can aell your produco,;.'.'. air.  a fair market price for it. and finally  bo able to pay yon for it within a reasonable time, and unless we can do this  a small dividend would, I am sure, be  of little use in establishing confidence.  The second parties are the ones  from whom yon purchase your sunnlies  These people are not concerned much  about what, yon pay out in dividends  but. what you have left in your business. It. is essential that, you first, make  your Company financially strong, and  then dividends will follow iu good  time.

They were driven up on the beach  by    fishermen    and    allowed    to die  there���������just    for    sport.    No use was  made of them.      The huge carcasses  j simply rotted and poisoned the air,  hogs are the best judges of when  they should take food. The feeder  is fully described in. Special Circular  No. 15 obtainable at the office of the  Publications Branch of the Depart-  blaekfish" j nient of Agriculture at Ottawa. This  ceptacle is easily made at  a cost of about $10 even when "new  lumlcr is used in its construction.  "���������k^OU say you have no time to talk insurance.

(Agents Wanted in Unrepresented Districts) rr  THE A*TER EFFECTS  OF DREADED LA GRIPPE  The meat of these whales was  worth in the market twenty-five  cents a pound. Their hides, for leather, were worth eight cents a pound.  The oil derivable from their jaws (the  finest known for certain lubricating  purposes)   was   worth  $8  a  gallon.  This is "conservation" Massachusetts style. Naturally the United  States fisheries bureau is indignant.  So likewise the food administration.  But what can they do about it?  In 1879 1,500 blackfish ran ashore  at Provincetown, near the tip of Cape  Cod. They all went to waste. Nobody had the gumption to turn them  to any useful account.  The blackfish is a silly mammal.  If one of a herd happens to run  ashore, the others will follow it.

Worse    Than . the   Disease   Itseif=  Victims Left "Weak, Nervous  and Worn Out  La Grippe, or Spanish influenza as  the  epidemic now  sweeping over all  America is called, is one of the most  dangerous    diseases  known  to  mankind.   Anyone who has felt its pangs  is not likely to forget the trouble. La  Grippe,  or influenza,  starts  with     a  slight cold and ends  with a complication  of  troubles.     It  lays  the  victim on his back, it tortures him with  fevers   and    chills,     headaches      and  backaches.    It leaves him a pjrey  to  pneumonia,   bronchitis,     consumption  and other deadly diseases.    Its  after  effects are often more  serious    than  thc disease itself.    It is quite possible  to  avoid la  grippe  by  keeping     thc  blood rich and red by thc vise of Dr.  Williams'   Pink   Pills���������-a   tonic   medicine which enriches  the blood     and  strengthens  the  nerves.

Last winter  j had a severe attack of la grippe  and it left me weak and all run  down. 1 had severe pains in the  chest and under the arms, palpitation of the heart and attacks of neuralgia which left me with the feeling  that life was scarcely worth living. 1  was advised to try. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills and began their use only  on the principle that I would try any-  tning mat might better my condition. I had only been using the pills  a couple of weeks when thc pains  began to leave mc. Gradually my  strength returned, my appetite improved, and in a little more than a  month I felt all my old time vigor  had returned. I am sincerely glad I  was persuaded to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and I shall always have  a good word to say. for  them."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills not only  cure the disastrous after effects of la  grippe, but arc also a specific for all  troubles due to poor blood, such as  anaemia, rheumatism, indigestion,  women's ailments, and thc generally  worn out feeling that affects so many  people.

Ma*, M&. if  With this issue The Review gets  off to a fairly good start on the  eleventh year of a not altogether  uneven if ui career. Under ordinary  circumstances the anniversary  wonld have attracted little more  than passing nntice. This, natal  nay, however, possibly we should  feel just a little more satisfaction  than usual at still being able to do  business at the old stand.  In addition to wartime conditions which have taken a heavy toll  of weekly newspapers in R.C.,  under date of August 28, 1918, we  have a letter from the local school  principal In which he informs,  among sundry other uncomplimentary things, that he was making  new friends every day, and that it  would only be a matter of time till  we would be put out of business.  Knowing, as The Review  always has, that the principal in  his way is about "the mildest-mannered knave that ever scuttled ship  or cut a throat���������if one may borrow  the well-known phrase���������we lost no  sleep over the threat, and now the  year has closed it is gratifying to  note that in the past twelve months  our eomnnereial printing and advertising trade was the best ever, and  that comparing our circulation at  present with a year ago a quite en-  couragiugr increase is shown���������despite sues persuasion anrj pressure  as the principal brought to bear  upon his midsummer friends.  Whether the principal's boycott-  still prevails we are unable to discern, but if he is taking even but a  little satisfaction ont of his efforts  to "get" The Review we trust he  will not weary of the well-doing;  we can stand a little extra prosperity over and above the 1918 standard. And, we trust, if from time to  time we find some cause to recipro-  'cate this displeasure that our attentions will be received in che same  cordial spirit.  But if we may be permitted to  admonish the principal our suggestion would be that, for a time at  least he devote the energy he is  wasting on The Review to improving his faculties so that in clue  course children may receive some-  DeLong terms "average teaching'  for the $125 a month now given  the school head. And by strict attention to school, matters only possibly in the fulness of time the  principal may be spared further  disgraceful and humiliating incidents such as he figured in a few  days ago in his unsuccessful effort  to administer corporal punishment  to a nine year old'eehoiar.  With all its faults The REVIEW  looks forward   with confidence  to  Xlx~   one   ysxtxx  Never be-  JUHl)   opening.  fore in its history has the Valley  iie&jSu s, iivp Ss3������if''spSr'ps"r qui^s so  urgently as it does at present. As  a newspaper- and citizen we believe  Creston Valley might go further  and fare worse than The Review  and its present editor.  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR  Editor Review :  Sib,���������At this time, when some consideration i.s being given as to the  form which thf proposed memorial to  our Creston soldiers should take, I  diffidently suggest that something in  the way of an oberious mouuitient  would be more appropriate than a  dedicated building. The idea, of a  building does not seem sufficiently disinterested. A marble monument, on  which the honored names wouid be  inscribed, with a drinking trough for  horses at its base., might- combine  beauty with merciful utility.  Campbell Blair.  HEWS OF KOOTEiMYS  There being no ice skating at Kaslo  the youngsters of the town have taken to Toller skating on the cement  side walks.  Postmaster Lefroy of Vernon, who  has been overseas for three years, got  back last month, and has resumed his  old position.  - White tail deer are  getting  scarce  in East Kootenay aud it may be neces-I  sary to establish a close season   for  a  couple of years.  C R. Macdonald has been secretary  of Reyelstoke Are brigade for 20 years.  The fire fighters haye only been ox-.  ganized 21 years.  The ice crop at Greenwood is fairly  satisfactory. The Pacific Hotel has  just put up 80 ton of it, which was at  least 24 inches thick.  The S������2Q00 commission earned on the  sale of Victory Bonds at Nelson will  be turned over to the furnishing fund  of the new hospital.  There is practically no demand at  present for lead and copper, and these  metals/ere stacking up in great piles  at the Trail smelter.  Revelstoke has been selected as ������i  demobilization centre for the returned  troops destined for the Yale, Cariboo  and Kootenay districts.  At Grand Forks the mild weather  has a tendency to bud the the trees.  At Nelson snowdrops were in bloom  the last week in January.  Kaslo is worrying for fear there  will be no ice harvested this year. The  natives insist on haying their two per  cent. ice cooled before indulging.  Lieut. O. R.

Poliee court fines at Nelsou fell off a  matter of $4000 comparing 1918 with  the preceding year.  Kaslo has organized a branch of the  Navy League, which starts with a  membership of twelve.

Hun    Did      Surreptitious      Business  With Public of Zeebrugge  Before Leaving  When the Germans withdrew hastily from the north seashore of Belgium they left behind a series of  fortifications all the way from Zeebrugge to Nieuport.  The entire shore is one continuous  Hue of redoubts, reinforced concrete  dugouts, trenches and barbed wire  entanglements, with gun, pits about  every 50 yards. Thc Germans carried off most of thc guns, but they  retired so hastily they had to leave  a large number behind. An old woman resident of the town told thc  correspondent, who wondered at the  profusion of Belgian flags,, that a  German trader had visited . Osteud  some days before the evacuation and  surreptitiously sold thousands of Belgian flags. "Is this not truly German?" she asked.  Many other residents had hidden  their Belgian flags from:.the invaders.

Interspersed With   Beautiful   Mountain Streams and Lakes  Alberta in 1882 was, says Mr. A.  S. Carlos, writing in the Edmonton  Bulletin, one immense range, interspersed with beautiful clear mountain streams, lakes and springs. Fort  Maclcod, Calgary and Edmonton  were the only places of any importance���������three  genuine western towns.  In 1882 and 1884 many; large  --inches were established in the  Macleod country. At Pinchcr Creek,  30 miles southwest, there were many  small ranches which carried from  three hundred head, besides^ the  large concerns, such as the Cochrane, the Waldron and Winder in the  Porcupine Hills north of Pincher  Creek, Thirty miles north of Macleod was Leavings, headquarters for  the Winder ranch on Willow Creek.  The Cochrane ranch people, besides  having a ranch southwest of Macleod, had a lease of all the country  from Shaginappi Point, three miles  west of the present C.P.R. station, to  Morleyville.  m-.~0-iimmt-m--^mmr0r^m~-^mm*  Minard's Liniment Cures Diphtheria.  of Neighbor Who Meets  With Accident  Cooperation of the altruistic kind  ("was recently exemplified amongst thc  Grain Growers of the Blaine Lake  district, according to a communication received at the central office, Regina, says the Leader.

Not content  with this the executive of the Grain  Growers' association decided to hire  a man and pay his wages for a  month.  D. Jupp, secretary of the Speers  G.

It is the "dog" salmon's  misfortune to have meat of a dirty  grayish hue, so that it is almost unmarketable.  Recently, however, a fish dealer in  Boston made a delightful discovery.  It was that some salmon-colored  paint (which he happened to be using for painting a truck) would  transform a do<T salmon offhand* into  a fish of the most expensive variety.  The way it worked was really remarkable. It appears that the stuff  was a coal tar product, and when  freely applied with a brush so saturated the meat with dye as to give  it a fine salmon-red lint clear  through.

and Restaurants
Well-lighted and heated hotels and
restaurants will be unknown in England this winter. The rationing of
hotels and restaurants and the catering trade generally, under the fuel
and lighting order is being specially
dealt with by the coal controller, who
urges proprietors of these establishments to assist in every way by careful use of coal, gas and electricity,
and asks the public to co-operate by
not demanding fire and light that can
possibly be done without.
The coal controller points out that
every form of display by iueans of
lighting, though it may be more apparent-than serious, nevertheless is a
subject of eom'oarison and comment
and would set a bad example to the
wvju��>c��iJiUv;is   vvnu   tire   SuOwuig   cvciy
intention to use less coal and light in
their homes. He asks for subdued
lighting in lounge and dining rooms,
for its abolition in show cases, and
for the ban of multiple lights in bedrooms.
It is essential that guests should
realize that hotels and restaurants
are severely^ rationed for light and
fuel, and it is confidently hoped that
the public, by sound and sensible
support, will help to put the national
interests before comfort and luxury.

Germany in the Toils
The losses sustained by the Huns
in the fighting up to the beginning
���not the end���of the first week in
September were so enormous that
30,000 men were taken from Krupp's
factories and packed off to the front
within four hours. They were given
no chance of desertingl It was the
same with a large number of boy
recruits who had finished their training. They were also sent off without being allowed final leavw.
Germany has also hundreds of Belgians besides prisoners working night
and day on the fortifications of the
Rhine. " The work had been stopped
for over a year; but evidently the
great allied advance has caused consternation in Germany.
Marking a nevv' step in thc development of the port of Vancouver as
a wheat distributing point, Australian
wheat was on September 17 for the
first time in history bulked and cleaned at the Canadian government elevators, preparatory to being shipped
to the Old Country.

have smiled, prayed and fought. Of
the English and Italians the same is
true. Zeppelin raids at home, military
reverses at the front and hosts of other complication have not deterred
them or weakened their spirit. Now,
with the reversal of thin��*s in order
