 Vol. XI.  CRESTON, B. C., FRIDAY, MARCH 21   1919        ������7^  No. 6  Y,0  ������ m^m m  *M1A 9C   &WM.-7  y  The generous supply of chairs in  the S. A. .Speers hall was almost inade-  ouate to seat the crowd of ladies who  were out for the March meeting of  Creston Women's Institute on Saturday, the feature of which was a talk  on nursing by Mrs. A.-Garland Poster  of Balfour, a. Canadian overseas military hospital head nurse of over two  years expierence, whose topic was the  introduction of a district nurse of the  Victorian Order for the Creston Val-  ley-Porthili, community. In addition  to this Mrs. ii~o. Young read a carefully prepared paper dealing with the  League of "Nations, and there was the  usual quilting 4>nd. a shower of books  for the library the Institute is launching, and which was a success to the  oxtent of 58 volumes being donated.  Mrs. Poster is a pleasing speaker,  with a fine command of language, and  a confidence born of experience and a  careful study of the matter in hand.  Her opening remarks followed conventional lines, expressing pleasure at  having such a representative meeting  of the Institute, suggesting by the  way, that Institutes generally could  do much io extending a welcome to  the English, French or Belgian wives  of returned solciers.  In opening her address proper she  called attention to the Victorian Order  pointing out that it wsis organized by  Lady Aberdeen-to provide systematic  c ue of the poor in districts of large  cities and at first confined its activities-to centres such as Monti ea] and  Ottawa. Much.of the work was maternity nursing aud all nurses who  went into the service were required,  and are stfllT������M|uired no matter how  good their training, to take a special  eou*raet>f*fdtir months in mA^ernity  nursing.  During the last ten years the Order  has groxvn, owing to increasing demands for nurses specially trained in  district work. The chief eastern cities  are provided with branches of the Order who now engage noloniy in regular district work but in school nursing  social welfare work, aud in the last  year has lent material assistance in  dealing with the Halifax disaster, and  tho problems nf the returning military  families.  Previous to the influenza outbreak  the Order was engaged in work in  Vancouver and several points on the  coast. During the epidemic so great  was the need of all B.C. that the question of district nursing was brought  forcibly home to all the distr'cts of the  province.  In tho interior of the province there  will be some difficulty in meeting  the demands of the people jn applying  a city organization to widely-separated  districts. However it is the desire of  the superintendent of the Victoria Order, Mrs. J-lamiiiigtnn, to do everything in her power to conserve the  health of every part of the Dominion,  aud she is prepared, where application  is made under'the requirements of the  Order to place a nursooi' nurses where  feasible. Applications uiav be made  direct to Mrs. Ilaniiinglon, superintendent, Spark Street, Ottawa, or lo  Miss Cole, Florence Nightingale Home  Venablo Street, Vancouver.  The speaker next, described the  work of a Victorian Order nurse in a  city, and finished by outlining a  scheme for the nationalization   of the   : . .....I  :..    /"!., .....1..

A yery thorough investigation of the whole matter wasv made,  and Mr. Ramsay is ir.cl!npd i** "believe  the work will be undertaken this year  if the cost is not excessive.

He is pressing the government hard  to procure a rock crusher and . road  roller for use in the Valley to get a  start on a permanent road building,  There is ample raw material here for  that class of. highway construction,  and the present system of yenairins-  the present roads is in no small way a,  waste of money. As city engineer at  Fernie.when the streets there were  similarly huilt naturally he is a strong*  convert to the use of crushed rock  in roadmaking.  Mr. nnd Mrs. It.

' For March operations a clucking  hen on the Stace Smith ranch has  made a name for herself, bringing thirteen chicks outof that number of eggs,  and the birds all living yet.  W. H.

Mrs. Matthews, who has been at  Nelson'lookingafter ihe Bartholomew  family while Mrs, 'Bartholomew was  down with'the flu, returned on Monday.  Alice Siding was splendidly represented at the soldiers reception at Creston on Monday night.

The stork is having quite a busy  time of it at Canyon City. Another  visit was made on the 14th, when a  daughter was left with Mr. and Mrs.  Hare.  Mr. Ramsay is confident that   work  .:w)UJbe.-res*^e4 lowecing  of  the gradfe and 'otherwise improving  the road at Arrow Creek hill will be  carried through to completion this  year, and that an auto road will be  buiit from Sirdtu* to Kuskanook, so as  to provide the neccessary outlet for  motorists going through from East  Kootenay to Nelson and interior  points.  While here the Transportation Committee   of   Creston   Board   of  Trade  waited on him, urging that   steps   be  taken to put   a   larger   ferry   on   the  Kootenay River and that engine, power if some sort be provided to operate  it with. To convince that the ferry   is  a  very   busy   provincial   utility   Mr.  Ramsay was presented with   a   statement   showing   the   traffic    handled  over the ferry from the middle oi July  till   the ������-iid of February,   and which  shows that 229 autos, 002 single   horsings, 5113 teams with wagons, (161   saddle horses,207 cattle, and 012 foot passengers  were  among  the transported  items.    Last fall nnd winter some 500  tons of hay were ferried across,   while  in one day this   year   there   were   10  tons of hay and 4.430 posts (estimated  at 00 tons) transported.    The question  of a new ferry, Mr. Ramsay   said, had  not   escaped    the   department's    attention, and that favorable   action   in  the matter might reasonably be   looked for at no distant date.  has boon visiting hero of late, and who  rendered valuable assistance in organising the Boy ScouL troop, was given  tangible expression of appreciation of  his good work overseas more part ion  I....I,.   ..l...     iJ-x.'.i  ..!-*..

ZXsv vxL\.a~.    60c. & ~<j~7  m--e~-~~0~r<~?.  $r  EDITORIAL  ^=~>  A Real Test of Patriotism  Reconstruction      is    becoming     a  hackneyed word in thc vocabulary of  all people thiis early after thc  close  of the Great War.    It is becoming as  much  a  commonplace  in    our  daily  conversation and writing as was thc  phrase used so frequently during the  war: "This  old world  can  never be  the same again."    The truth of    the  latter saying is being impressed upon  all people more and more clearly as  the days pass, bringing with them a  record of world upheaval in every department of life.    And the word "reconstruction" merely stands for those  new   ideas,     methods,    and    policies  whereby thc old world which existed  prior to August, 1914. is to be changed  for  the  better into  a new world  having its birth in thc terrible cataclysm  of thc  past four    ar?d a half  years.  The world is confronted with a reconstruction   of  its  social,    religious,  political, educational, economic     and  commercial life.      Western    Canada,  canno-, even if it would, stand aloof  and immune in this world-wide period of change.    Our very habits    of  thought have undergone a revolution,  and formerly held opinions have been  uprooted,    strong    convictions    have  been   weakened  and    old     prejudices  destroyed.    We ar-e already living in  a new world.  Is  this new world to be a better,  finer one than thc old?    We all hope  so,  but it   remains   with   us  as  individuals, and collectively as a nation,  to bring about    the    realization     of  that hope,,    At the moment old customs, systems and policies arc in thc  melting pot;  thcy are being  tried in  the   fiery   furnace   of  a   great    social  revolution  which  is      sweeping     the  world  wiih  irresistible    force.      The  danger is   that   in   burning  away   the  dross of the past we may fail to extract   the   pure   gold   oi   sound  principles  ami  the  experience  of  ihe ages.  Wit'n   t.l'.r   ���������������.������������������.������.ing     of     the     pendulum  from the c's-i autoer-vy of thc past to  t'r.c  o'-���������,',���������   ."'".nooraoy    of    tiie    future,  lli ���������*.:���������<: is 4'l.'.r.gcr  or people    ini-st.iking  their new found liberty for license,  of going from one -extreme to the  other. And extremes arc always  dangerous.  This tendency is seen not only in  Russia and other European countries  where Bolshevism is leading to  anarchy and ruin, but it is noticeable  in Great Britain, United States and  Canada where masses of the people  in their eagerness to break away and  discard the past arc impatient of the  time and consideration required in  preparing and putting into effect new  policies and creating new systems.  Yet if the best results are to bc attained, if permanent conditions making for lasting good are to be created, it must-be by thc taking of gradual steps, by evolution, and not by  violent measures and sudden revolution.  Tbc next few months constitute the  most critical period in the history of  mankind. The sudden coming of  peace threw the world out- of gear  even more completely than did the  sudden outbreak of war. With th i  outbreak of war, endangering all our  personal liberties and onr very national independence, the fires of  patriotism burned high and people of  all classes were willing to undergo  any discomfort and make any sacrifice in order that victory might be  achieved. But with victory came relaxation, and tlie danger now is that  the patient patriot may become the  impatient and carping  critic.  Thc real patriotism of thc Canadian  people is to be put to the test now  and during thc next few months.  With the throwing of tens of thousands of men and women out of war  employment, and the return of some  hundreds of thousands of soldiers to  civilian life, there will inevitably be  some unemployment, and unemployment always means idleness and leads  to discontent, unrest and distress. It  is thc duty of all those in a position  to do so to "orovidc employment for  others. Many cannot do this, but  they nevertheless have a personal responsibility to their country in the  present crisis.  It is the duty of cveTy individual  at this time to remain calm and patient; to place a curb on his tongue  and give no encouragement to feelings of unrest and discontent among  others, and to set their faces sternly  against all movements calculated to  weaken our laws and constituted  authorities and offer defiance to orderly and good government. The people's rights should bc steadfastly  maintained, and all legitimate grievances presented, but these things  should bc done in an orderly and  lawful way and by  means.  Such an attitude on the part of the  great, intelligent mass of thc Canadian people will enable this Dominion  to the more quickly readjust itself to  peace conditions and bring into effect without undue delay those reforms in all departments of life  which admittedly arc necessary.

Banished by the    Wonderful    Tonic  Powers of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  In almost every case the victims of  la  grippe,  influenza,  fevers    or  contagious troubles, are left weak, ailing  "*#nd despondent after the disease   itself    bas    disappeared. They  do not  pick up strength as thcy ought,    and  remain tired listless and discouraged.  Thc    one and   only reason for this is  that the blood has been impoverished by the ravage of      the      disease  through which the victim has passed.  Strength and full activity wiii not return until the blood has bc^n restored to its normal condition. The blood  can be enriched and purified by    no  other medicine as    quickly    and    as  surely as by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  To enrich the blood and  strengthen  thc nerves is the whole  mission    of  these piiis, and thousands have found  them beneficial in bringing    strength  and  energy rfTter disease    had     left  them weak  and    run    down.

Soldiers At-Home  Successful Affair  Insofar as such an occasion may  serve as a barometer Creston Valley's  returned soldiers know that their overseas efforts and sacrifices are fully  appreciated by the stay-at-home citizens, for with the dirtiest sort 'of  weather prevailing all day nnd even  ipg', and with the roads everywhere  inches deep with mud, the Auditorium, was'far too small to accommodate  the crowd that was in evidence for the  soldiers' at-home on Monday night.  At least 30 khaki clad veterans were  in the crowd, all points in the Valley  having one or more representatives,  including Sirdar with two.  Thirty tables were provided for  whist, but had there been room for a  dozen more tables there would still  have been players to spare. Cards  were called off at. about 10.30, the  prizes going to Miss E. Hirtz and  Miss M. Bunce, while *the   gentlemen  Grady   and  winners   were   ������j.  Weir.  Next came the concert program,  which featured the address of welcome and the reply thereto. Rev. J.  S. Mahood delivered the former with  eharacteristic ability, and well-chosen  language Lieut. R. Sinclrir-Sniith replied on behalf of the G.W.V.A. The  other items on the programme were  vocal solos by Mrs. Vaehon and Rev.  Mr. Mahood and a song and chorous  by Ralph Swanson. Miss Kane and  Mr. Chorlton contributed a 'cello duet  and Mi*. Chorlton solo number on the  same instrument. R. B. Staples, who  presided, opened proceedings with the  ���������Long Long Trail" chorous in which  the crowd joiued with vigor, and they  also lent a hand in the song by Ralph  Swanson. "It's the Navy."  Refreshments were served in the  family style in the apartments above  the Auditorium which had been specially fitted up for the occasion. The 25  or 30 soldiers present with their partners had the first table and amongst  the good things served/ t hens was  roast turkey, thanks to tlie foresight  of Mr. and Mrs. John Hobden, who  generously turned oyer to the refreshment committee a 25-pound bird they  had ot-iginaily intended to haye when  their son, Pte.

From start to finish there was   no   let  up to the eyening's enjoyment and the  affair went through   without   a hitch  anywhere.    A. R. Stsanson, who was  at the head of a committee of nine   in  charge of the   affair,   and   who   also  headed the   refreshment  committee,  is everywhere congratulated   on   the  success that attended the evening, the  handling of the supper feature reflecting great credit on   himself  and   the  two other membersof that committee,  Mrs.Compton and Mrs. Maxwell.

And   while   compliments are in order one must not oyer-  look   the    orchestra.    They     played  throughout      the      entire     evening,  and their effort was a great factor   in  the high class entertainment provided.  That the ladies of the   Valley   were  not backward in   showing   their   appreciation of the  occasion  is indicated in the large supply of excellent refreshments.    After all  had   been well  helped a considerable supply remained  and the proceeds   of   the   auction   of  these helped   materially   in   enabling  the committee to turn over $25 to the  Creston Great War Veterans   yesterday to help  that   organization   carry  on their worthy effort.  We have not the spaee Lo individualize in expressing the committee's  very deep appreciation of many valuable services rendered, but will  those who figured in the program; the  ladies who brought the refreshments,  who helped with the serying of them,  worked on reception committees, or  in any other way made themselves  useful kindly accept this as a very  genuine thank you. And the same to  the men folk, particularly to the bachelors who came through handsomely  with cash wherewith to buy tea, coffee, milk, sugar, etc. The affair  throughout proves that the Valley's  heart is in the right place���������and this is  the first of a series of similar events.  emerriher the  nC^���������***?.#*% 1 ��������� ��������� ��������� i ***���������*������ ���������������&     W ifJilA i  ade Bast Summer  ���������to get your warm weather clothing made up early?

McGAW & WINNETT  BDITAIN HAS PLAYED IN THE WAR  LORD GURZON DESCRIBES MAGNITUDE OF EFFORT  Great Britain is Justified in Asking That People Should Be Told  What Nation Has Done  Saved thc World and Civilization  tier iintrauCc Into the War  The magnitude oi Britain's worldwide war effort was described tersely and luminously by Lord Cui'zon in  a speech at Gray's  Inn Hall:  "We were lighting seven distinct  campaigns ourselves���������in France and  Flanders, Italy, Saloniki, Palestine,  Mesopotamia, Persia and .Egypt.  Thousands of our men had. shed  their blood for the defense and  emancipation of other lands. We had  proved ourselves to be the knights-  errant of civilization. We had been  the feeder, the clothier, the baker,  the armorer, and the universal provider of the allies, and without our  aid the superb effort could not have  respirators to thc Italian army to enable them to breathe the air of victory in the forthcoming twelve  months. We  had   dislocated     our  trade, reduced our own consumption,  rationed our coal, and sold or pledged  our   British  securities   aud  incur-  ti'on of thc new seed grain loan system, the department of agriculture  has issued a statement setting forth  thc considerations which have led to  the new policy. The .statement says  jg. in its closing paragraphs:  "Representatives of this department  report that even in parts of southwest Saskatchewan ten or twelve  years of age, there are many farms  where the fallow is not plowed until  on in July od even August, that it  frequently is never harrowed till even  later, while others make not even  this^ pretense at summer-fallowing,  having none at all. One might about  as'*safely enter a western winter without fuel or shelter as a southwestern  summer without summerfallow.  "Those who persist in taking- such  chances in the future must do it at  their own risk and expense and not  be encouraged to longer gamble with  government seed in the hope of another 1915. West and southwest Saskatchewan should be, one year with  another, if properly farmed, one of  the finest and safest wheat growing  areas of the west.  "To one, however, who refuses to  .adopt the proven f:eld methods of  our successful farmers in this area,  the scrap heap is his inevitable fate.  To those who have again suffered  loss of crop from drought this year,  the above frank presentation of the  situation may seem harsh and cruel,  but it is undoubtedly in the interests  of all that it should bc said, and the  problem  faced.*  "In the case of many others who  have also lost their crops this season  from such largely non-preventable  causes as frost and hail, it is gratifying to know that cither a comfortable  bank account or the diversified character of their farm operations have  left them in such a position of independence as to be able to finance  themselves at this time.

We  also  had  half a     million  parts of the world  "We were sometimes reproached  for the number of men kept in this  country; but thcy were retained because they were carrying out invaluable and necessary service to the allies. At present there arc 260,000  men in this country engaged exclusively in the industrial service of  the allies and 375.000 digging coal..  One million men were doing industrial work for the admiralty, and one  and a half million men were engaged  in munition work, a large prportion  working not for us alone, but for the  allies as well. When they contemplated these services it was remarkable  that our armies  were  so  large.  tons   of  shipping  in   the  service      of   pur effort was  sufficiently great     to  Italy, and we had carried small arms,  ammunition,  machine  guns,  blankets.  socks, wool, cotton and jute,  the lat-   and to our allies  justify us in asking that it should be  made known both to our own people  ter  to  clothe  the  soldiers of  France  and her people. We      had      sent  France's entire supply of frozen meat  and petrol to Saloniki.  "What we have done for France wc  have done for all the allies. Since  the war we have carried twenty-four  million tons of stores for the allies,  and the total value of our shipping  contracts for them was seventeen  millions sterling. Northampton, Kettering, and Leicester had provided  thc footgear for thc alliep, and _ had  turned out altogether sixty million  boots.     Wc  had    supplied    2,000.000  The last sentence of this passage  should find an echo in every country. Great Britain's entrance into the  war saved the world and civilization.  But for British resistance the Hun  would have had continental Europe  under his heel, despite all thc Valor  of France, and hc would have proceeded to organize his power for universal domination. His design was  broken by thc British stubbornness,  to which the kaiser paid angry tribute in his conversation with Ambassador Gerard. History will do justice to thc part Britain has played,  but her miraculous exertions, military, naval, industrial, are not yet  fully appreciated except by serious  students of the war, because thc gaze  of nations has been fixed on thc drama and glamor of thc battlefields,  which have obscured other essential  factors in thc strength of tho allied  cause. The greatest of these has been  the British mastery of thc seas.���������Toronto Globe.  grain on credit will become  a  of thc past."  thins  Why the Sea Is Salt  The sea is salt because the rivers  carry salt there and leave it. You  must remember that ever and ever  so many big rivers empty themselves  into the sea. And you must remember, also, that all through thc ground  there are what we call mineral salts.  As the rivers flow along they pick  up some of these salts and carry  them down into the ocean. Thc salts  are not all the kind that wc mean  when we say "salt," but there is more  of that kind than, any other, because  that kind dissolves more easily than  any other, and so becomes a part of  the water. There is so little salt in  each river that we hardly notice it,  but then all thc rivers reach thc sea  and dump their salt into it. Then  there is a very great deal. Of course  the sun takes up a good deal of water from the sea. That is Nature's  way of keeping the sea from spilling  over. But thc sun takes only the  water and not the salt; so the sea not  only keeps the salt that it has, but  it keeps on getting more from the  rivers. And so the sea gets more  and more salty all the time.  Germany Was Deceived  ���������ST-i  Efofli'-r and   B..'������<-;  I'lfj-''.'-, <'<>'.;.'. -.-. i",'.'!.'

Thc bullion was obtained by the  melting down of thc silver dollars  held in reserve against the one-dollar silver certificates, which arc being retired by the issuing of federal  reserve notes. The silver thus set  free is being shipped to India, under  an agreement with the British government, which is obliged to pay the  natives in India, in whatever capacity they are employed, in bullion.  It was learned that about $17,-  000,000 in bullion had been shipped  to the Far East from New York assay offices since the right to melt  down the silver dollars was conferred by thc act of congress^ of April  23. Shipments are also being made  from San Francisco, and Philadelphia,  and it is estimated that the _ total  amount thus far sent to India is between $60,000,000 and $70,000,000.
